SOL bonus: Tag game – get to know me

I was tagged by Jowita, and then by another couple of simblr friends, Shhhushhh and treason-and-plot. I adore them both greatly and highly recommend them.


ISABELLE

► Name? ➔ Isabelle Jessica Williams. Named after my grandmothers.
► Are you single? ➔ I keep waiting to get swept off my feet, and I keep getting disappointed… So that’s a yes, if you weren’t sure.
► Are you happy? ➔ Generally, yeah. Is any teenager 100% happy though?
► Are you angry? ➔ Perpetually miffed at Ayr for something. This morning it’s because he hogged the bathroom. Why does he bother to tame his bedhead when it’s just going to be stuffed under that disgusting hat! Ugh, what a shithead. I love him.
► Are your parents still married? ➔ Yes, and I can’t see that ever changing. My dad still gets all gooey around her. It’s adorable.

NINE FACTS

► Birth Place? ➔ Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, if you want to be precise.
► Hair Color? ➔ Brownish. Hints of red in some lights.
► Eye Color? ➔ Blue! I have my father’s eyes.
► Birthday? ➔ [carys sweats nervously as she can’t be arsed finding her notebook]
► Mood? ➔ Fine. Head in the clouds, sometimes, but fine.
► Gender? ➔ I’m female.
► Summer or winter? ➔ Haven’t you heard? Summer is winter.  I don’t have a preference. I don’t like extremes of any weather.
► Morning or afternoon? ➔ Oh, morning, definitely!

EIGHT THINGS ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE

► Are you in love? ➔ I’m in love with the idea of love, I guess…
► Do you believe in love at first sight? ➔ Yes! That’s basically my parents through and through. It’s SO real, whatever my uncle says. He’s an unromantic spoilsport.
► Who ended your last relationship? ➔ ..me
► Have you ever broken someone’s heart? ➔ ..yes
► Are you afraid of commitments? ➔ I… that’s complicated. I guess I’m afraid of committing to someone I’m not sure about? But how do you know? I – ugh, it’s all so confusing!
► Have you hugged someone within the last week? ➔ Yes, of course! I hug my family ALL the time, and Ayr has this habit of squishing me far too tightly in what he calls his super hug. He’s such a twat, honestly.
► Have you ever had a secret admirer? ➔ Do valentine’s cards count? If so, then yes! I never found out who they were from though.
► Have you ever broken your own heart? ➔ Oh… yeah.. all the time.

SIX CHOICES

► Love or lust? ➔ Love!
► Lemonade or iced tea? ➔ Iced tea? ICED tea? Just joking, I don’t care. I do love a good tea, though.
► Cats or Dogs? ➔ Oh cats, for sure. Dogs are SO needy.
► A few best friends or many regular friends? ➔ A few best friends. Owl, my family, and maybe Mia. It’s all I need.
► Wild night out or romantic night in? ➔ Romantic night in! A cooked dinner, candles on, snuggling up on the sofa…
► Day or night? ➔ Day.

FIVE HAVE YOU EVERS

► Been caught sneaking out? ➔ No! I’m not that wild. Besides, if I want to go to a party, I just sweettalk mum. She does the rest.
► Fallen down/up the stairs? ➔ I got all the grace of the family. I’m good.
► Wanted something/someone so badly it hurt? ➔ See above, love.
► Wanted to disappear? ➔ Oh my GOD yes! What teenage girl hasn’t?

FOUR PREFERENCES

► Smile or eyes? ➔ Oh, that’s hard. Can I choose both?
► Shorter or Taller? ➔ Mmm taller~
► Intelligence or Attraction? ➔ My dad always says you need someone to be on the same IQ level as you, but you’ve got to be attracted to someone too! I don’t know…
► Hook-up or Relationship? ➔ Relationship, but I don’t complain about the former if it happens…

FAMILY

► Do you and your family get along? ➔ Yes, TOO well. I do NOT want to know whenever Ayr is going to the bathroom for a number two… and yet he announces it to the whole room. Poor dad gets greys trying to tell him to be more polite..
► Would you say you have a “messed up life”? ➔ Not at all! My life is the definition of mundane. Not boring, though. I quite like it like this.
► Have you ever ran away from home? ➔ No! I could never imagine wanting to, either.
► Have you ever gotten kicked out? ➔ Same as above.

FRIENDS

► Do you secretly hate one of your friends? ➔ I’m not sure about Mia, yet. She’s – she’s a bit standoffish? She doesn’t really care what people think about her, which is great, except sometimes it makes her a little bristle-y. I don’t HATE her though!
► Do you consider all of your friends good friends? ➔ I’m sure in time Mia will fit into our group well, so sure.
► Who is your best friend? ➔ Oh, my brothers. But beyond family, Owl, I guess.
► Who knows everything about you? ➔ My mum, of course!


QUINN

► Name? ➔ Quinn Juan Williams.
► Are you single? ➔ Yes.
► Are you happy? ➔ Even better – content.
► Are you angry? ➔ No, I’m a fairly mild person. Have to be with a house as full as it is!
► Are your parents still married? ➔ Yes.

NINE FACTS

► Birth Place? ➔ Edinburgh.
► Hair Color? ➔ Black.
► Eye Color? ➔ Depends on the light, really.
► Birthday? ➔ [redacted]
► Mood? ➔ Content. Satisfied.
► Gender? ➔ Male.
► Summer or winter? ➔ They both have their benefits. I enjoy being indoors when it’s lashing it down, but we go for a lot of hikes in the summer. That’s nice.
► Morning or afternoon? ➔ I like the peace of the mornings. Typically, Ayr’s still in bed…

EIGHT THINGS ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE

► Are you in love? ➔ No.
► Do you believe in love at first sight? ➔ I can see Isabelle glaring from here, but no. There’s a chemical release, sure, but that’s not what you mean here.
► Who ended your last relationship? ➔ I haven’t had one.
► Have you ever broken someone’s heart? ➔ Well, if you ask Ayr, he’d say yes. This is only because I refuse to let him drink from the juice carton. As if he would manage to do that without spilling it all over the floor anyway…
► Are you afraid of commitments? ➔ I don’t think so.
► Have you hugged someone within the last week? ➔ Hug, probably not. My family are tactile, but I’m not a hugging person. Ayr likes to crush me against his chest at times, but that’s more of an underutilised torture method…
► Have you ever had a secret admirer? ➔ Not that I know of. [Isabelle snorts and mutters idiot in the background]
► Have you ever broken your own heart? ➔ No. Can you do that? No.

SIX CHOICES

► Love or lust? ➔ Love feels more sustaining to me, so I’ll go with that. Besides, you made the mistake of not specifying romantic love, so most definitely love.
► Lemonade or iced tea? ➔ Lemonade if I had to choose. Neither, if possible. I don’t like fizzy juice and honestly? Iced tea sounds horrendous.
► Cats or Dogs? ➔ I think a dog would be nice when I’m older.
► A few best friends or many regular friends? ➔ The former. Scientifically speaking – well, I best not get started.
► Wild night out or romantic night in? ➔ Can you ever imagine me choosing a wild night? My version of that is staying up playing dungeons and dragons into the early hours of the morning!
► Day or night? ➔ Day, I think.

FIVE HAVE YOU EVERS

► Been caught sneaking out? ➔ No. Because I’ve never needed or wanted to.
► Fallen down/up the stairs? ➔ Ayr has tripped me going up the stairs – does that count?
► Wanted something/someone so badly it hurt? ➔ Not really. I don’t really want abstract things, and I’m not a materialistic person.
► Wanted to disappear? ➔ No.

FOUR PREFERENCES

► Smile or eyes? ➔ Smile, if I had to choose.
► Shorter or Taller? ➔ I don’t think I have a preference.
► Intelligence or Attraction? ➔ Intelligence, most definitely.
► Hook-up or Relationship? ➔ Relationship.

FAMILY

► Do you and your family get along? ➔ Yes, I’m very lucky.
► Would you say you have a “messed up life”? ➔ Not at all.
► Have you ever ran away from home? ➔ No!
► Have you ever gotten kicked out? ➔ My father once threatened to kick me out because I listened to our podcast before we were supposed to listen to it together. But he was joking. I hope!

FRIENDS

► Do you secretly hate one of your friends? ➔ That… defeats the purpose of the word friend, do you realise?
► Do you consider all of your friends good friends? ➔ Yes, absolutely.
► Who is your best friend? ➔ Ayr, though he drives me up the wall. Isabelle too, but there’s plenty of things neither of us would want to bring up with the other..
► Who knows everything about you? ➔ Ayr, but then we do share a room..


AYR

► Name? ➔ Ayr James Williams. Yeah, it was Quinn who drew the short straw. Haha!
► Are you single? ➔ Does my hand count?
► Are you happy? ➔ Eh. Fairly.
► Are you angry? ➔ More like a sort of dull, muted frustration. It be like that sometimes, ya know?
► Are your parents still married? ➔ Yuuuuup.

NINE FACTS

► Birth Place? ➔ Edinburgh, which is why I have such an English accent. HA!
► Hair Color? ➔ Black as my souuuul. Joking. I’m bored.
► Eye Color? ➔ Green.
► Birthday? ➔ [yikes]
► Mood? ➔ Pretty upbeat, I’d say, old chap!
► Gender? ➔ I’m a duuude.
► Summer or winter? ➔ Nuh uh, wrong question. The question, for this part of the world, is do you want a season where you can wear a t-shirt and then get eroded by them wee fuckin’ midgies, or do you want to be blown off your feet and pished on by rain?
► Morning or afternoon? ➔ Afternoon. I hate mornings, don’t @ me.

EIGHT THINGS ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE

► Are you in love? ➔ Yeah. Yeah.
► Do you believe in love at first sight? ➔ I think there’s something at first sight. Love, though? Probably not.
► Who ended your last relationship? ➔ Haven’t had one. I’m hung (up) like a horse. Haha!
► Have you ever broken someone’s heart? ➔ Oh, I think I break my father’s heart all the time when I never take my hat off indoors. He was born in the wrong decade, I swear!
► Are you afraid of commitments? ➔ Nah. If you like it then you should put a ring on it, right? I’ll take the milk AND the cow. [snorts].
► Have you hugged someone within the last week? ➔ Oh yeah, I hug my siblings all the time. Quinn and Izzy, I hug ’em far too hard and swing them around a little bit, but I hug Shanna a lot too. And a lot more carefully. Don’t want to break her!
► Have you ever had a secret admirer? ➔ …does my LEFT hand count?
► Have you ever broken your own heart? ➔ Okay so just yesterday I finished my favourite golden nugget cereal (they taste yee-haw!) and put the box back even though it was empty, to piss off Quinn, but then I forgot and went to have some today – and I’m like, fuck you, past me! So yes.

SIX CHOICES

► Love or lust? ➔ Love, but you gotta have a bit of lust in there too, right? Unless you’re ace, I guess.
► Lemonade or iced tea? ➔ Lemonaaaaade, boi.
► Cats or Dogs? ➔ Oh FUCK, gimmie a cute little pupper any day. Quinn can walk him.
► A few best friends or many regular friends? ➔ Eh, whatevs.
► Wild night out or romantic night in? ➔ Listen, listen. I live in the bumfuck middle of nowhere, Scotland. You don’t think I’ve already risked alcohol poisoning, passed out in a field somewhere? A sheep trod on me once. Plus I found a tick right up my crack. But I would totally do it all again!
► Day or night? ➔ Niiiiiight.

FIVE HAVE YOU EVERS

► Been caught sneaking out? ➔ The trick is to tell your parents exactly where you’re going, and then piss off before they can do anything other than sigh. Nah, I’m kidding. Mum knows where I’m at. Unlike dad, she understands that you can’t take the cheap pish lager away from a Scottish teen.
► Fallen down/up the stairs? ➔ Hey, I meant to do that! All those thousands of times…
► Wanted something/someone so badly it hurt? ➔ Yeah. Yeah.
► Wanted to disappear? ➔ If only to reappear as a trick and frighten someone, sure!

FOUR PREFERENCES

► Smile or eyes? ➔ Oh, smile. But when she smiles, it’s in her eyes too. Oh GOD, I’m so fucking gross.
► Shorter or Taller? ➔ Shorter! Just.
► Intelligence or Attraction? ➔ Uh, is this a trick question?
► Hook-up or Relationship? ➔ I’m not going to say no to any lovely ladies who want to get to know me, you know, biblically! But I’d prefer the relationship, thanks.

FAMILY

► Do you and your family get along? ➔ Yeah, even though I annoy the crap out of them. Haha!
► Would you say you have a “messed up life”? ➔ Nah, bog standard.
► Have you ever ran away from home? ➔ I was like nine and I was running to the very distant ice cream truck sounds. Then I got lost on the moors. It happens to the best of us! Luckily the local plod found me, oops. My dad definitely got his first grey that day.
► Have you ever gotten kicked out? ➔ Let me just tell you this, kids. Don’t trick a lactose intolerant person to drink a ‘dairy free’ milkshake in their own home, and then relocate the bog roll.

FRIENDS

► Do you secretly hate one of your friends? ➔ Calling Adam my friend would be so wrong. Maybe cunt is the better word?
► Do you consider all of your friends good friends? ➔ Eh, sure. Why not.
► Who is your best friend? ➔ Quinn, whether he likes it or not. But I love Izzy and Shanna too, even though I get to annoy Shanna less.
► Who knows everything about you? ➔ Toss up between Cara and Quinn, to be honest.

 


I really got into it with Ayr there xD

I’m probably posting this later than others, SO either I’ll come back and tag people who I don’t think have done it yet, or this text is still here, which means I haven’t. So if you fancy doing it, go for it, and I’ll tag you and we pretend it was this way round in the first place 😉

  1. Oh my god, Ayr! He cracks me up. His answer to whether he’s single or not, I can’t. These three are great. All the little details they add in are so cute. You really get the sense that there’s a real life going on away from what we read in the story. I love that about your writing. You really know how to make the characters’ lives feel real 🙂
    Loved reading this, Carys! 😀

  2. I love how different all the triplets are, but Ayr ❤ He is such a damn cutie and I love it to no end. My favourite part of him is that he just tells it like it is, with a bit more colour! I really loved that you chose them too. I already knew these guys but its fun to get an even more in depth look at their differences and similarities!

  3. Hey, I deserve a shout out, too. Pretend you know me from Tumblr. Lol, just kidding!
    Oh dear, I love Ayr. You gave him such a vivid personality, it shines through all of his answers. The hand ones were the best. And the English accent. He got me there, I have a soft spot for that one. Their distaste for iced tea, though. It’s clear where they come from. I’m going to say I love iced tea just to piss you off 😛 And Quinn’s answers were so short and concrete. That does fit his personality, too!
    Such a fun read!

    1. Hahaha my bad 😉 I shouted about you on tumblr of that helps :p
      I just don’t like sugar or cold tea, and it’s not really a thing here – I believe it’s a different thing anyway.
      Quinn is quite like Law – he doesn’t embellish!

  4. I loved getting to know the triplets better!! They are all so different from one another it’s insane! Isabelle sounds quite romantic at heart, and Quinn is so precise and smart (he reminded me a little of my Andrew – without the arrogance of course, lmao)! But Ayr is where it’s at, haha – he cracked me up!! But I can’t really say who’s my favorite, all of the answers were so enjoyable to read! This was really fun! 😀

    1. Ah, I’m glad I’ve captured the characters so well 😀 Yes, Quinn IS a lot like Andrew isn’t he?! But kinder hahaha. He’s quite similar to Law, but he has some of Lukas’ personality too, so I hope he’s not just a carbon copy, haha. It’s probably why he’s the least fave of the triplets, though I do love them all lots 😀

  5. I love how each of their voices shines so brightly through in the answers! I have to say that Ayr’s were damn hilarious, even if he really does sound like a gross teen boy lmao. “It be like that sometimes” is something my friend says ironically so I was just laughing like a weirdo at that answer. But out of the three I like Quinn the best. Clean cut and calm 😀

    1. Hahah, writing Ayr’s made me cackling tbh.
      I love how everyone is quite varied in who they like the best. But you’ll be happy to know it’s Quinn’s genes that’ll get passed down to the future generations ❤
      Thanks for reading 😀

  6. This had me cracking up 😂 🤣
    I laughed at the iced tea responses. Only us Americans like our tea cold.
    And when Quinn has no idea that he has a secret admirer. And pretty much every one of Ayr’s answers were hilarious.
    But what’s with the secrecy around their birthday 🤨🤨

    1. Ayr is a jokester, I love him.
      Hahah it’s literally that I don’t remember if I’ve ever written it down anywhere and I don’t want to contradict myself haha. I never remember birthdays!
      Thanks for reading ❤
