After seven months and countless hours spent at the compizzle it's finally over.
The Mars Family Legacy is over. Over! OVER!

Well, you might want to read it liek.
Do so here on and here on the blog.

Ahhh, it's over, and I'm strangely happy. When it started I was unemployed so I had lots of time to waste, but since finding a job my time has been somewhat stretched. I've enjoyed doing the legacy all the way through, but by the end I found I was playing more out of obligation than because I wanted to, and that's not good.

At least now I'll have time for other things... I can buy Pokemon SoulSilver! XD I might start playing GTA San Andreas again, and I have a real urge to play Sims 2 Castaway- did you ever have that? It was cool; mebbe I can post pictures.

Anyways, I'm rambling. I'm just kind of relieved yanno? I'll be able to concentrate on Escape to Riverview and Fury and The Doctor, I can make Sims again, I may even do one of those modeling competitions. The possibilities are endless. Wheeeeeeeee!

Of course, now I wont be posting a new legacy chapter every week my goal of reaching 10,000 recommendations is going to take a bit longer, but nevermind :)

Dear Readers

I have a bad habit...

It started a few months ago after the Mares did that article on Netherlia's 'death'. Y'see, just using the limited information Netherlia had provided about himself on the TS3 website they were able to find out allllll sorts of things, mainly cause he'd spread himself about teh interwebz like a big rash.

Following that I did a little searching myself using my username, first name, and the town I'm from just to see what you could find out. Luckily for me there wasn't much out there, so I don't have to worry about peoples thieving my identity, but still- it did turn up some interesting things, and this lead me to my filthy addiction...

Ego searching.

If you type my username into the search box on the TS3 website a whole mess of stuff comes up. There's a lot of nice people out there who mention me on their pages, there's a few people who've reuploaded my Simself, which I don't know if I should be annoyed about or not considering they're pretty much crediting me, and then today I came across this...

Boy would I love to know what this means. It's a little scary... that's Super FuryRed there just with bad hair and different clothes, but... what is it? There's two stories like this- I think it's a serial.

Weird, no?

More Comic Joy

Oh Bitten, do you know what you're getting yourself into? Just a few more months til I get a new computer and I can download Simselves... Mwah ha ha!

Lovely comic though dear, it made me smile ^_^

It's Just So Beautiful

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With all the bitching and trolling on the forums at times it's so nice to stumble across something wonderfully weird like this every once in a while.

Simmersaurus_Rex and cross-dressers; bringing joy to Simmers everywhere.

Am tempted to do some gifting myself to try and earn a comic, but I'm too cheap >_<
Plus free store stuffs can be found here (thanks Evie!).

Pokemon (Fury)Red

Wild Furychu appeared!

Furychu used sexy-time come on!

Furychu is stunned, it cannot move!

Furychu used sing!

Furychu escaped!

Ahem. Many thanks to the Mares for their t-shirts and shiz XD

On another note, does anyone know anyone who takes custom content requests? I'm only asking for summat really simple, and that is for the following to be made in Sims 3 form:

Cutey cutey little drawn-on catness would be ahmazing, mebbe without the startled eyebrows :p

Words from the (Occasionally) Wise

Arguing with someone over the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics- even if you win you're still a retard.

(Don't blame meh for that saying, I got it from my bro :p)

Dirty Filthy Habits

That really made me laugh- it was just so matter-of-fact XD

I think we've all done that- create the man whore Sim and send him shagging all over town. Mine happened just before my legacy; I had a Sim named River Summers and he slept with everyone, got them all pregnant, AND had the fertility treatment so the victims were dropping twins like nobody's business.

Of course, by the time I started my legacy game the town was overrun with his spawn... But I guess it makes a change from all the other legacies where the founder buddies up with Cyclon Sword or Hank Goddard or... that guy I've forgotten the name of (I have no time for pre-mades).

If you ever read the first few chapters of the MFL again you'll see his kiddies in all shapes and forms. Heck, I'll save you some time:

ETR Update

I know I know, it's been a while, but at last the new part of Escape to Riverview is up.

Part Nine: Flux



Free Shiz, Fo Sho

I discovered this a few months ago, and I'm shocked it hasn't been deleted by now...

Someone, somehow, has uploaded some sets from The Store to his Sim page, where you can download them, gratis.

I kid you not. Thanks to Drakes41 I have the Asian Fusion set and others in my game, totally for free. I don't know how the hell it works, but rest assured it does.

Here be some links for ya:

There's a bunch of other clothing in his studio so be sure to check that out too, and recommend of course ; )

Enjoy your thievery all!

Click It

The report button is there for a reason.

Doesn't it just seem sometimes like all the good Simmers out there are getting banned? They are, and that's because there are a bunch of nasty little shits on the forums who report others for no reason.

If you want to be part of the resistance then do something about it.

I understand why people are reluctant to report others- we don't want to be arseholes- but sometimes it's necessary. I've never reported anyone before, though there have been many occasions when I probably should have done, but now is the time for change.

You see these trolls out there and you grit your teeth at their spiteful and provocative posts, but if they really are being abusive towards others then you need to report them. I'm not saying you should go mental and start reporting people constantly just because you don't like them, only that, if you see one of those trolls flaming others and generally being a dick, report them. Please.

Only through taking action can we even attempt to change things for the better.

Edit- and it seems reporting does indeed work. One troll down, who knows how many to go. Just call me John Connor : p

MFL Update

Hello, how does one like my new forum signature?

I'm just slightly in love with that Mickey Mouse-esque picture >_<

New chapter of The Mars Family Legacy is up now peoples:

Read, enjoy, tell me what you think as always.

Am currently working on an Escape to Riverview update too. Hopefully it should be finished later tonight, but we'll see how it goes : )

Ohmygod, What An Idiot

You don't like the Mares- we get it- but that's just stupid.

Oh Wows

EA Customer Service finally got back to me; total shocker.

'The particular reason why you were suspended was because the forums are for discussing specific topics. Off topic subjects such as other players suspensions are a violation of our terms of service.'

Did anyone else know that? Why exactly did they make a thread where people could discuss bans not too long ago then? And where in the forum rules does it even state this?


You're Really Taking The Mickey Now...

Uhh, Fury? What are you doing?

Oh hai there Randy, I was just, erm, playing- enjoying my new Mickey Mouse ears. Anyways... hows it going dude? I'm sorry about the other day yanno- I know you're not trying to thieve the Doctor off me, I guess I was just having a bit of a spazzy time.

It's okay Fury, these things happen. How is the Doctor by the way? He's seeming a little strained at the moment...

It's okay, you've still got it, you're still sexy. No new Doctor will ever be as pretty as you. It's okay, it's okay...

Ah yeah, he's just a little bit stressed about the new series of Doctor Who being on- he's worried that he's going to be replaced.

Aww poor guy. I don't think he's got anything to worry about, though the new series is pretty brilliant so far.

Random, don't say that to him whatever you do. *sigh* Yanno he's not the only one acting a bit weird at the moment...

Dear Diary. People may think a heart is left absent from this tin chest, but it's just not true. I think, I feel, and I hurt just like everyone else. Oh, I bleed!

Mistress Fury thinks she owns me, but I have a plan. If I can just find one weakness then it'll all be over, and I'll be free.

I can't help but feel hope is lost sometimes. I thought that phlegmy throat she had recently would kick her into touch, but it didn't change anything. She doesn't even have allergies, how am I meant to find a flaw?

Maybe there is a solution though. Everyone is allergic to at least one thing, just one fatal brew...

If I can do it- if I can gather the ingredients, make the formula just right, then maybe I can take her down. If I have to I'll go all Rasputin on her ass I will, but hopefully I wont have to. Hopefully this will work right first time...

She's not right for him. She's sarcastic and cruel, and he deserves better- the Doctor deserves someone who'll love him completely. He has two hearts, I don't have any. Maybe it's a sign...

I just wish that---


Bleep bleep motherbleeper!

I don't think I can take this anymore Diary. I need to end her now, but it's going to take time.

I don't know how much longer I can go on, I barely have enough resolve left to cling on to each day as it passes me by. I need more out of life... maybe I should just smother her with a pillow.

No no, the Doctor can't know what I've done. When the time comes it'll have to look like an accident, but in the meantime I can find my own ways to push her buttons...

The Next Morning

Morning Doctor, lovely day isn't it? I can't believe it's actually sunny in England for once and-- what are you staring at?

Fury... I think you better go to the bathroom and look in the mirror.

Okay... I'm scared now what is it?

Just go look Fury... Must not laugh, she'll kill me...

<------ ARRRGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I'm going to kill that fucking robot!

Mickey Mouse ears are fun, clearly. Download yours here todae.
Also you may have noticed the loverly 'FuryRed Says S.T.F.U.' tee there. It was made by Megan and you can download it here if you so wish.


Ha, given that earlier post now comes a slight retraction, for I have found a legacy of sorts that I'm somewhat glued to at present...

In the Valley of the Sun

I heard of this a while ago, and I've only just got round to reading it. Boy am I glad I did XD

A Word on Legacies

How many legacies do you think there are on the TS3 website alone? I'm hesitant to hazard a guess, but I'm thinking maybe hundreds. Do you know how many of those hundreds I've actually been a regular reader of? Just one.

The one in question is, unsurprisingly, Aoxa's Smith Legacy. It's the only story I've found, besides Graycurse's legacy which I dip in and out of, that I've actually stuck with- but even then I didn't follow the Smiths when they moved to LiveJournal. Why? Well there's no real reason; nothing changed- the legacy didn't go all shit or anything, I just think maybe I have a short attention span.

Now why am I telling you all this you may be wondering. Well you see, ever since my legacy became quote/unquote popular I have a lot of people looking to me for advice. I'm honored that I'm thought of in such a high regard, but I fear the admiration is perhaps misguided.

If you ask me to read your legacy or story I can guarantee you one thing- I will definitely read it. What most people want though is comments, and that's not something I do lightly. Generally I only leave my scribe on items if I have something in particular to say- usually if I've been blown away by whatever I've been reading. Generally I'm mute.

It's not your fault, I'm just very hard to impress. Not in life really- I'm a cheap date and I'm happiest just spending time with friends- but when it comes to writing I definitely have set opinions. Consequently it will take something very special for me to pick up my, erm, keyboard and leave my notions.

When people ask me for thoughts on their legacies I don't know what to say- I can only tell you what I would do, and that's no good cause we're all different. In my Simmie stories, Escape to Riverview in particular, I pride myself on individual style, so it's hard for me to critique others. I know you might not want that- you'd probably just like a general nod of acknowledgment or a 'very good' but... what can I say? I suck. I'm a natural critic and I believe that old adage- if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.

Hmm I'm rambling now. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you ask me for advice and I don't get back to you I'm not trying to be a cow, I just have difficulty in knowing what to say.

Something to consider though- a lot of people get disheartened when their legacy doesn't do particularly well recs wise. Do you know how some of the most-read stories out there got that way? The writers didn't give up. When I first started the Mars Legacy the first chapter got I think about eight recs. It took a really long time for it to become well known, so you have to have patience. Also, a lot of the legacy writers I know are in their late teens or early twenties, but the majority of TS3 users are children or have just become teenagers. You can't beat yourself up if your story isn't great- you can have a natural aptitude for something but skill only really comes with practice.

Hell, my legacy wasn't all that when it first began- these things take time yanno?

But anyways, after all this if you really want to know what I look for in a story do read this legacy from the Sims 2 website- it's pretty much perfection (in my eyes).

I'm so full of sexy phlegm todae.

That is all.

Life on Mars. Ha! I'm Funny.

No real reason for this picture, only that I thought it was very pretty and I'd never be able to post it on the TS3 site without the banhammers swinging at ma fez.

Anyways, the new Mars Legacy chapter is out now- read it here on or here on the blog.

Now I don't mind saying, but this chapter has been a real pain in my arse to put out. I've been at work a lot more recently and consequently haven't had much free time, so I've been stressing a bit trying to get it sorted. I knew it was getting really bad when I contemplated passing on going out for a nice curry with my friends in favour of getting the chapter written up. For shame! I relented anyways, and got a bit pished which is always nice.

Anywayssssssss, enjoy the chapter dudes : )

There Be Demons Under The Bridge...

Trolls are akin to a mild rectal itch- irritating at first, but scratch it and you're in a whole mess of trouble...

I understand the compulsion to reply. You see these twats posting to provoke and human nature wants to reason with them. You think that maybe if you could explain your point then they'd realise what they're like, and they'd stop it. This is only because most of us are decent human beings, and if we knew we were behaving like complete bastards then we'd be horrified and ashamed. The same is not true of trolls.

You have to understand that these people are not on the forums in aspirations of having a nice debate. They do not have opinions in earnest with hopes of getting their point across, instead they come up with the most inflammatory thing they can muster and spray it all over the populous like poison. They're not looking for someone to discuss their thoughts with, they only look to bait the onlookers and force a response.

It's hard to keep quiet. I used to be the most argumentative little fucker but one day I came to a realisation. No matter how smart I am, no matter how well I word my reasoning, there are some people in the world who are just not willing to listen. And so I stopped. There's people out there, they post on my blogs and chatboxes, they say they don't like what I'm doing and try to get a rise out of me. I'm not biting. I save my words for the people I care about.

I know it's difficult for some of you. There's a lot of people I know from the forums who are bright and articulate; who always stand up for what they believe in and wont back down. That's great- don't change- but save it for someone who matters. By answering the trolls you're only serving their purpose. Ignore them- let them sit in their rooms alone, hunched over their computers, feverishly waiting for a reply. Maybe soon enough they'll realise just how pathetic they are. We can but hope.

In the meantime though direct your efforts elsewhere. Trolls are like weeds; deprive them of what they crave and eventually they will die. Don't give them your sunlight and your oxygen. Let them sit in the dark- it's no more than what they deserve.

S.T.F.U. for once

No one asked you- no one ever does.

I of course realise this isn't the most productive way to get my point across, but I have a policy of not wasting my time arguing with people I don't respect.

Pimp My Blog

Have re-done my banner XD


I've also remade my FuryRed Sims logo thingy, but I dunno if I'll be able to use it. Y'see, I need it to have an all-black background but that requires some editation and, well, I sucks ^_^

Ho well!

Flame Retard-ent

What am I doing? Oh yanno just waiting for you to get back to me on the ban you're supposedly investigating, lamenting the stupid thread you've made and all the Henrys who've jumped all over it, as well as just generally hoping the SimGurus will die in a fire.

But hey, this is The Sims- where dreams really do come true...

Hello my pretties, and welcome to FuryRed's Dungeon of Doom...

And so it begins...

Ban me? Ban me will ya?!

I fell in to a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire
Do do-do do-do do do do

I should probably feel a bit bad about this, if it wasn't so funny...

Sadly, SimGuruPopTwat could not make today's events as her Sim wouldn't download.
Just another EA fuck up for you there.

Oh please Mr Reaper, please let me live!

Hmm I don't know, what do you think Fury?

Sick 'em Grim.

Of course, if the Gurus are to be believed then none of these bannings and forum issues are actually their fault. That's always their byline isn't it? "Don't look at me it wasn't my fault, hey have something shiny".

I have a question though- if you're not responsible for banning people or sorting out the new forum areas or even helping people, what exactly is your job?

Ick, enough of this bullshizzle. Let's amuse ourselves with something nice shall we?

Oh, and the new chapter of The Mars Family Legacy is out now- go read it here or here : )
