Lost: The rest of the Challenge

You'll have to forgive me. When I moved all the sims back on the lot, it seemed to have messed up my pic order. So I've reordered them to the best of my memory, which isn't good, lol. But instead of dragging it out and doing a few more posts, I'm just going to lump them all together.

Charlie wins the aspiration point challenge, so he gets to rescue someone.

Kate and Locke are still on lot, so it's Sawyer who comes back. No matter who would've won the challenge, it would've been Sawyer. Everyone loves him for some reason. I don't.

Kate beefs up for promotion, or is it? Being a romance sim she could have dual motives.

My first Hail storm. It drove me nuts as everyone would stop what they were told to do to grab their heads.

Kate finally gets Jack in bed. Maybe it was her newly toned body? This of course was point strategy, I like Kate and Jack. I want one of them to win.

He found it to be a totally shocking experience. No, this was my first sim to get struck by lightning.

NO!!!!! Not Jack!!! And I don't know what happened to the pictures, but he and Kate married. It was a huge risk. I could've put Kate (romance sim) into aspiration failure. But she didn't loose any points, whew! Hopefully she'll win the next rescue challenge and can bring him back!

Nice uniform Kate.

I wouldn't make out with someone in that get up either, try changing clothes. Oh Kate, also would like me to mention that she's not trying to make out with Charlie because she's a romance sim. She is married after all, even though her husband now resides with the Others. She's trying to get her aspiration points up enough to rescue him. Jack, it's all for you. Just remember that.

Charlie says he never makes out before the first Woo Hoo. Um you've got that a little backwards buddy!

It doesn't bother Kate much, she just turns to Locke and locks lips.

When she's done with him, she goes back to flirting with Charlie, maybe he'll come around when he sees how in demand she is.

It must have worked.

Another golden fish. I had three of them before the end. I forgot to take the last picture.

Sawyer gains a gold fishing badge!

Right before the Others come.

Kate goes for her third woo hoo. (Locke was second, I must have been on auto-pilot through this part of the challenge. I didn't get many pics.)

Cha Ching! Points!

Good thing she didn't have a fear of being caught cheating. I think this picture might have been right after Charlie and Kate made out, oh well.

Locke throws himself into fishing to get his mind off Kate and her romancing ways. He earns a gold fishing badge. Locke, she's married, hello! Of course, she's going to cheat if she woo hooed with you!

And the Others take Hurley. The next day, a rescue is made. Kate has the highest aspiration points and she brings back...

Sawyer?!?! What the heck? She didn't even make out with him! Kate, did we forget about your husband??

Locke gets taken next.

I've never had two Leaders of the Pack so I took a shot.

Sawyer fixes the shower, just in time because...

the Others really like him a lot. He's been taken three times and rescued twice.

I didn't take any more pictures after this point. I'm not sure why. At this point, only Kate and Charlie are left. Sunday, the Others come again and...

Kate's our winner. Charlie lost by only 500 points. I took the shot of her relationships. You can see she has the three lovers. She finally decided (a little too late) that she liked Jack more than Sawyer. And it looks like Hurley would've been her next conquest.

I did like both Kate and Jack a lot, I'm thinking of continuing the story at a later time.

Until then...

The End.

Lost: Week 1

I've never seen the show Lost, so none of my characters will remind you of any actually on the show. I get to have complete freedom here with no predisposed ideas. So if you've seen the show, please bear with me.

The survivors finally find a decent spot that will suit their basic needs while offering a bit of protection at the same time.

Scavenging through the debris, they manage to find the plane's toilet and erect somewhat of a privacy barrier.

Immediately, the majority of the survivors start trying to catch their dinner. There is food from the Dharma drop, but unfortunately most had been lost.
While the rest of the group continues to scavenge, Sun starts cooking up what she can manage to save from the Dharma drop.

There is an old fridge, a counter and a grill that the group dug out of the wreakage. Enough to be able to cook and save meals with.

Another barrier gets erected and a "satallite phone" is found. It seems to still work, well somewhat. They haven't actually been able to contact anyone with it yet.

Hurley pauses in his search for food to catch some fireflies. Without electricity and the unavailablity of candles for the moment, they have to do what they can to light their refuge.

He catches enough to light the kitchen area.

Jack gets the hang of fishing really quickly and starts bringing in some big ones.

Another jar to light the toilet.

And yet another.

The group catches quite a few big fish. So many in fact, they're able to stop fishing and scavenge the wreakage a little more.

More barriers are built.

And a firefly lit shower is rigged up.

Jack, you managed to figure out your job placement, we'll let you go first. *Editor's note: He's the ONLY one whose career was available.*

Trying to get in a good mood before heading off to do his duty, he tries workin' up on Kate a bit. She's not too responsive.

Tickling works slightly.

She tells him how much she appreciates his fishing skill.

Without a bed, the survivors sleep where they can.

Jack decides to see if Sun is any more responsive. Looks like this one may work. Unfortunately, it doesn't do much to improve his mood.

And already his position calls.

Tuesday morning (I missed 6 am by an hour, oops) and the Others come. Who will be the first to be taken?


It starts raining pretty good and lightning strikes. A tree catches on fire.

Before they can react, the fridge is struck as well.

After the fire is extingished, Sawyer, Locke and Sun collapse.

Jack, back from his job, can't deal with the thought that they almost lost the fridge.

Kate does a little entertaining in her nightie to try and bring up her fun level. Romance sims, what can I say?

More fishing and more "time to scavenge".

Beds are found allowing a little more comfort for the group.

A lounge chair is brought back.

*I screwed up here a bit: I thought the next Others visit was on Thursday and I checked points. After reading the rules again, I realized my mistake and skipped the Friday visit.*
Sun is taken by the others.

A dartboard is collected!

Charlie manages to catch a HUGE catfish. His luck continues as he finds a job.

It's okay Sawyer, you'll have time to catch up.

Another bed is found *thanks in part to Charlie's fish*.

Along with a bookcase and sofa.

Later, an easel is discovered.

And a few more beds.

Sawyer loses it.

Jack finally gets Kate to warm up to him. He managed to find both her and Locke jobs.

Okay, she really warms up to him.

Sunday morning, The Others come again. This time taking Sawyer.

More scavenging and enough wood is found to build a small shelter for the double bed.

Charlie caught a Golden Trout. For now it's mounted on the shelter, but since it's worth $518 it could be removed at any time. Let's just call this the emergency fund.

The things they put in the bellies of those planes!

Finally another counter and small dining set is found.

A sink and more barriers.

*This picture really has nothing to do with the challenge. I just loved the way the mist rolled off the water with the palm trees surrounding it. I feel very much at home. Waves from Florida.*

Stayed tuned for the next Episode where the first Rescue will be attempted.
