꒰ genre ꒱ — fluff, js literally how they love so (gn!reader)
AYATO loves like the tranquil waters. The still, calm, underlying surface that’s not so easily shaken by the morning breeze. The ripples that formed as raindrops collided into bodies of water. Blows of a thousand winds won’t disperse the firm lagoon that’s foundation is buried within the core of the earth. The challenges you face with another became one that bounds the unshaken perseverance between the both of you. The love he has akins to the serene waves that’s bound to the moonlit nights, luminous, filled with undying grace and serenity.
CHILDE loves like the tidal surge. Waves that reach ‘till the crown of the heavens, soaring so greatly with infinite strength and determination to reach the clinging stars of the above. He is afraid not to show the love he has for his dear. He desperately yearns for the time he touches the sky once more just as he fell into the unshaken sands of the shore. The everlasting torrent that continuously returns to the comfort of the stars, no matter how high he has to reach.
KAVEH loves like the setting sun. The sky that’s paint in an orange-like hue accompanied by a red undertone. The golden hour that surrounds you in an epitome of light, reflecting your ethereal glow. He loves like there is no tomorrow. The sun alters the entire skyline just to declare it’s presence on the morning day, and it does the same as it flutters away. Kaveh shows extravagance to his words and gestures but those aren’t little sweet nothings of a mere eye candy, those are phrases and brackets that surrounds you like the orange hue of the afternoon. And he will alter even the heavens just to justify his love for you.
ALHAITHAM loves like the subtle rain. He does not need loud thunderstorms nor hurricane schemes to display his affection. Little droplets that collide with the epidermis of your skin is enjoyable not worrying. He loves without any care about the world, just like how those little drops cascade into humid soil without any doubt. He might not be expressive with his words unlike the rainbow that comes after the roaring skies but the way his pupils dilate as he watches your endearing smile, the soft smile that highlighted his usually vacant expression as you drew near, glows more than all the colors that the rainbow reflects. He treats you with such grace akin to a falling feather and the humid air after the rain.
NOTE. i hope this wasn’t confusing as hell bc i wrote this in like 12am 💀 hope you enjoyed! like as well as reblogs are appreciated <33
I don’t know if it happens to you - but I often find myself with a sudden urge to rebuild worlds - Even though I’m the worst sim-builder and sim-decorator in the whole history of Sims 😋 And in my quest for lots there’s one thing that stresses me out all the time: where will the builds fit in the map?! 🤯 Therefore, I have been creating some personal lists with favourite lots and I thought why not sharing them with you too!

I changed the way I present my neighbourhoods a little, I hope you like this new MM style. Why showing lots I didn’t even build: Lots of simmers share lookbooks of amazing CAS CC and I think builders really deserve love too, as a gallery scavenger I want to contribute by sharing the cool things I found over there.
Nan Madol is an archaeological site adjacent to the eastern shore of the island of Pohnpei, now part of the Madolenihmw district of Pohnpei state in the Federated States of Micronesia in the western Pacific Ocean. Nan Madol was the capital of the Saudeleur dynasty until about 1628.[note 1] The city, constructed in a lagoon, consists of a series of small artificial islands linked by a network of canals. The site core with its stone walls encloses an area approximately 1.5 km long by 0.5 km wide and it contains 92 artificial islets—stone and coral fill platforms—bordered by tidal canals.
Carbon dating indicates that megalithic construction at Nan Madol began around AD 1180 when large basalt stones were taken from a volcanic plug on the opposite side of Pohnpei. The earliest settlement on Pohnpei was probably around AD 1 although radiocarbon dating shows human activity starting around AD 80–200.
Followup to the skull reconstruction I posted a few days ago, this is the known material of Brachiosuchus. Looking back there's definitely some things I'd change and update, but it still gives a good basic look at it. Brachiosuchus was part of a clade of rather bizarre crocodile cousins, the dyrosaurs (which are more closely related to Sarcosuchus than to modern crocs). They are strange to say the least, highly flexible with weird backs and pretty buff tails. Brachiosuchus additionally stands out due to the enormous arms, which are unique to this species. In literally any other Pseudosuchian, the forelimbs are shorter than the hindlimbs, but from what we know of Brachiosuchus the opposite is true. The closest comparison would be to turtles and plesiosaurs, with the big difference being that those evolved flippers, which Brachiosuchus clearly lacked. Still, it is likely that they were used *somehow* in locomotion, especially since dyrosaurs were known to be marine (mostly) and the fact that Brachiosuchus was found in a nearshore to backshore environment with tidal flats and lagoons. Finally there's size. Mine turned out at a bit over 6 meters, the paper suggests up to 6.8-7.8 meters (tho i doubt the maximum here). Difference could easily be due to the difference between purely mathematical estimate (and the specific method used) vs the fact that I based my proportions on the much more complete, if more derived Congosaurus. There's also the matter that only a small portion of the bones were given actual measurements/accurate scale bars, primarily the limb bones and the skull, while the rest I basically had to eyeball more or less. So don't be surprised if I eventually publish an update or straight up remake.
Asis and I strolled to the nearby beach from our Airbnb at the crack of dawn, hopeful to catch the sunrise, but heavy clouds just covered it. We then decided to visit the not-so-secret Secret Beach (also known as Guiwan Beach) and spent an hour there, chilling. It was cool 'cause we had the whole place to ourselves – like we owned the beach. Afterward, we returned to freshen up and gathered our belongings for the land tour. We grabbed coffee and breakfast first in General Luna before hitting the road around 9 am; our destination was Del Carmen to visit Sugba Lagoon. However, we ended up making several stopovers because the scenery was just beautiful.
We opted for a private boat rental to ensure we could leave the lagoon whenever we wanted. Surprisingly, the boat journey to and from the lagoon ended up taking more time than our actual stay. I didn't mind, though, as I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. However, the place didn't live up to my expectations – no food stores or additional facilities, just a two-story floating hut with its infamous diving board and docks. The area was crowded with tourists, making it challenging to find a place to sit.
By around 2 pm, we arrived at Pacifico Beach, and let me tell you, the sight of the pristine blue sea and the waves was truly breathtaking. We enjoyed a late lunch in the area. Although we didn't take a swim, we just took in the moment. Later, we passed by Magpupungko, hoping we could see the tidal rock pools, but unfortunately, it was still high tide. We also made a stop at the Coconut Trees View Deck and snapped more photos. The weather was really unpredictable that day – from cloudy to sunny, and just when we were heading back home, it started raining, only to clear up again. To top off our adventurous land trip, a rainbow appeared just as we approached our Airbnb!
Taking a breather before heading out again for dinner in General Luna, we couldn't help but notice a drastic change in our skin color – we were pretty much toasted! Anyway, at 6 pm, we grabbed coffee again and then headed to a Thai restaurant for dinner. Afterward, we returned to the secret beach because earlier in the day, we had spoken to one of the local boatmen who suggested checking out the bioluminescent plankton and fireflies at night. Despite feeling tired from the earlier land trip, we were determined to push through. Honestly, the idea of a boat tour at night had me feeling uneasy. Navigating through the darkness, moving away from the shore, and getting closer to the mangroves — it was downright terrifying. Bahala na.
There were three of us in this small boat. As Kuya shared stories and rowed closer to the mangroves, we spotted a few fireflies. It took a moment for our eyes to adjust to the darkness, but soon enough, we could see plenty of them. To catch a better glimpse of them, you needed to move even closer to the mangroves. But nope, Asis and I were good, so we didn't go further. Kuya also tried to show us the bioluminescent plankton, but there were so few that I had a hard time seeing them. He mentioned it wasn't the best time to view them due to the frequent rain during our stay. So yuuup, we headed back to the shore after 30 minutes because it was getting chilly, and we could hear thunder approaching.
It turned out to be quite an adventure, a unique way to kick off the first day of May – an exhausting yet unforgettable journey. Definitely one for the books.
Our view throughout the day changed as the tide went down leaving a really cool tidal mudflat to explore.
W and I had a really good time just relaxing, getting work done, walking along the waters edge and getting our feet wet! And of course we got more pics of Swimmy the LBCTurtle!
This was our setup. 2 camping chairs, a nice small table, a beach tent to block the sun, a little fan hanging from the top, and some butt/back pillows for comfort. After all, when you "work from home" home can also mean the beach! It's also disability friendly in a lot of ways. So many places are a long walk from the parking lot to the water and back. Here you can see how close we are to the parking, with the van on the left being where the spots are. We just unloaded bit by bit, set up, and boom, done. Just a few steps and all good!
Here's a small video showing the water and the lagoon... such an amazing place to spend the day.

Begin a new chapter in the historical University of Britechester or modern Foxbury Institute. Live in a dorm room or off-campus in the welcoming town of Gibbs Hill. Explore Britechester on a bicycle, spend time in the student commons, and have a study session at the library. Cheer on the student body at a school spirit event and wear school colors to show your Sim’s pride.
All lots are renovated and I tried to add some more gameplay objects that should be useful for your sims attending university. TOOL was used to add some new decorative/gameplay objects outside the playable area but you don’t need the mod for the save to work.
3 Residential Lots:
- Honeydew Fields (Starter Home);
- Spring Steppes (Occupied by the Elderberry Household);
- Mossy Lane (Occupied by the Pleasant Household).
6 University Housing:
- Tidal Tower;
- Briny Tower (Occupied by the Fletcher Household);
- Maritime Manor;
- Drake Hall;
- Wyvern Hall (Occupied by the Best of Friends Household);
- Darkwing House.
Premade sims have been given makeovers including fixed relationships, likes and dislikes, new careers and skills. I also added Dirk Dreamer and Dustin Broke from Get Famous (they’re not famous anymore) to the Pleasant Household and set their relationships accordingly.
Best of Friends
Julia and Becca have been the best of friends since they first met in kindergarten. Nobody that knows them could imagine them going to university without the other one by her side. Now as they're starting a whole new journey into university it's up to the pair to see if their friendship will survive this new adventure and carry them through to adulthood.
Angela and Lilith have moved into an old family home located in Gibbs Hill to attend university. It will be a true test to find out whether their bond as twins can overcome their differences. Their majors have already split them into separate universities, but whether they will be at odds or work together to make it through is a new challenge in their life. Dustin and Dirk have yet to find the perfect degree but for now they're just happy supporting the girls in this new journey.
Ekram and Eleanore have lived in Gibbs Hill all their lives from young love, to a growing family, and finally into retirement. Eleanore loves seeing the new students appear each term, but Ekram isn't always as fond of the young adults taking over their quiet town. Recently the couple's teenage grandson, Rohan, came to live with them as he prepares to go to university soon. Rohan will soon finish high school and have to make his final decision on what university he wants to attend.
Cameron Fletcher is all about learning new things at school, he's just not sure how to make friends with the people around him. But with just a little nudge in the right direction Cameron is sure to master university life.

The most notable characteristic of the delorix homeworld: Rhodo, named after their red plants, is that it's tidally locked, normally this would mean extreme temperature difference across the planet, but an active atmosphere with heavy winds manages to distribute their stars' heat enough to harbor a wide diversity of organisms.
The masaka homeworld: Igneous (I misspelled it on the image), is a very warm world named after its volcanic activity and rocks used in blacksmithing. It's notably dry throughout most its surface, save for a single large ocean on one side, a region humid enough for rain forests to naturally grow around it. Another notable characteristic is the north side temperate and arctic red desert, which gets chilly at the lowest during winter.
The colder planet of the nedal homeworld: Aurora, named after the magnetic field activity seen widely from the temperate to polar regions, is primarily surfaced with oceans and continents carpeted in blue grasslands, with pockets of forest.
I wanted the zrai homeworld: Venous, named after the rivers that many zrai populate that look vein-like from an ariel view, to have continent-sized lagoons but that would probably require planet-busting levels of volcanic activity, so I'm now opting for an ocean planet speckled in normal-sized islands and lagoons.
The smazel homeworld was blown up at the climactic end of a religious crusade centuries before they encountered the other alien nations, and since they kept no empirical records of their "sinful" planet, scientists and historians from the other alien species can only infer what it was like based on smazel physiology and their mythologies recounting what it was like, which was apparently violently volcanic and desolate.
I still don't know what kind of stars they orbit yet, and these planets may get adjustments as I gain a better understanding of geology and cosmology.
