Short Biography: Yeah, I was born without a father, so what? I shoulda hunted him down and killed him myself when mama told me what happened. Put a splintery stake right through his heart, I would.

And if you got somethin' to say about us being two guys, I got a few rounds to shoot off if you catch my drift.

Likes
My girl, Gretel. My house - I forgot it through clean...or semi-clean money. And fine art. Especially when I can fence it for a lot of money. Let's see...rum. Gotta have that around me. And tattoo's.

Dislikes
Those schmucks who think they can get away with setting up their own vending machine business behind our backs. Are they a bit dumb up in the head? We know everything. And those guys who get it into their heads that they can keep behind more money than what's due to them,. They think we don't keep track of every cent that comes our way? I'm not called "The Organiser" for nothing, you know. Oh yeah, and those idiots who think they can take over our areas. Dumbasses.

Kakashi_Hatake_SC
1st Jun 2007, 4:53 AM
Nope she can be current as long as she looks like she's in the mafia ^.^.

Short Biography: I was born into a mafia family, though I did not know this until I was 8 years old, when I was an infant my teenaged mother, her boyfriend and what everyone thought was the rest of my family were killed by a rival gang. I was adopted by Jaime and Clay Keeler and renamed Katya Keeler. At 7 I found that my real grandfather, Don Gustavo(the mob boss), was still living after Clay went to work for him. Long story short, my grandfather was given custody of me when I was 10 and my name was legally changed back to Natalia Gustavo.

Dislikes: People messing with her girlfriend, up-tight arseholes, and cowards.

Short Biography: Half-Japanese, half-Irish, Rai Li O'Murphey is the illegitimate child of a high-society Japanese businessman and a Belfast whore. The combination of her good looks with her red-hot temper caused several 'incidents' involving blades and male genitalia, with the end result of Rai having to leave the country.

Sure one entry can have two sims, there's a two sim limit though so if they're twins that's fine, and thanks everyone!!

@Silentpsycho-That free shot is just fine, basically a free shot is of your sim and it's jsut a random shot that you've taken that you like or one of your favorite pictures. Or of them doing a favorite activity of thiers, with thier pet or kids or something like that ^.^. oops you forgot the name in the title bar, other than that your entry is fine.

If anyone has any questions about anythin feel free to ask me ^.^. I'll answer the best that I can. And if anyone wants to change any pictures before the application round is over, feel free to do so ^.^.

Name: Florence Creed
Age: 25
Likes: veganism, old fashioned clothing, assasinations, math, anarchy
Dislikes: animal cruelty, being called "Flo", noisy deaths, small guns
Short Biography: Florence has an interesting stance on life. Human lives hold little value for her, but she refuses to harm animals. Her father married into the LeGrand mob, and she's grown up with killing as just one of the facts of life. When she was 10, she shot a man who was trying to kidnap her, beginning her career as a gangster. Florence has become good friends with Janey Parker, and they often work as a team when collecting protection money...and getting rid of those who don't pay on time.

Headshot: Despite her somewhat ruthless attitude, Florence is quite cheery most of the time.

Age: 34

Likes: when business is good and she gets to be bad.

Short Biography: Raised in downtown Chicago by her Mafia Don father and her terminally ill mother, Agnese grew up seeing the dark side of life.

Running guns and the politics in Chicago takes a watchful eye and a steady trigger finger.

I've been to Johannesburg, Mogadishu, Sierra Leone, and now Uganda to make sure I get what I need and others don't try to stop that. I work with others who are never around. This has been my trade since I was 5 years old and it will be till the day I'm laying on the ground cold and stiff.

The job just fits... as long as she keeps her temperment in check.

Thanks Julieth. Yes, please call me Jessica or Jess since it's shorter. I wouldn't say out-originated, I just got the iea from all the turmoil that has gone on in Africa pretty much. I really like how your two entries correspond with each other and I would have never thought of the Cajun mob, so you should get originality points too.

wow, I'm impressed ^.^. Awesome entries everyone, TRIriana is still missing a bodyshot and there are a few missing freeshots but other that that everything looks great. There's the list i put it ther because it would make the beginning post look too cluttered as there are alot of entries and we've still got like 6 days for apps left. Also if anyone knows someone who would like to donate prizes or anything let me know, I'm doing some icons for those who enter. Also the application round will have NO elmiminations, and round 1 will but how many depends on the number of entries. I can also tell you this due to the success of this one there will definantly be another ^.^.

We've got 3 more days for applications, I may extend that until the end of round 1 depending on how things go. That means if anyone enters at that point they'll have to do an app and a round 1.

Well we've got 2 more days in the application round but I'm going to most likely extend it until Round 1 is over, that way people applying then will need to do thier round 1 and application. The actual application Round is over on the 6th. Everyone's looks awesome so far I'm glad I'm an EJ for this one it'll be tough. The people that get thier entry in by the 6th will get comments from the judges if they choose to do so, since there will be no application eliminations. Keep up the awesome work guys!

Second entry:

Name: Xian Li Chang

Age: 22

Likes: People with honour, her katana, and her girlfriend's hair.

Dislikes: People messing with her girlfriend, honourless cowards, and Americanized Japanese food.

Short Biography: Half-Japanese, half-Chinese, Xian Li Chang grew up in a Yakuza household. After a rival group caused an explosion which killed her parents when she was fifteen, she was sent to live with her cousin who had emigrated to America and worked as a bodyguard for a local mafia boss. Wanting to be like her cousin, Xian trained every day to become one of the enforcers in the group. When she was twenty, she was introduced to her new partner, a young spitfire from Belfast called Rai Li O'Murphey. To everyone's surprised, the two hit it off right away and have become inseparable since.

Xian Li is the 'straight women' to Rai's 'psychotic bitch' temperment. Calm, collected, and focused, it's Xian's job to keep Rai in check. The two make quite a good, and deadly, pair.

Kakashi I just wanted to let you know, that if apps end tomorrow rather than continuing through round 1 I more than likely won't get mine completed, I will have access to internet, but it won't work on my computer, because I don't have any form of dial-up program on it :( Just wanted to tell you :D I'll be able to check in, just won't be able to post any pics

5th Jun 2007, 7:08 PM
Nope I plan on continuing them through Round 1, but once it goes into round 1 the people that enter during that time frame will have to do thier app and round 1. So if anyone else wants to enter thay can do so until the end of round 1. I'll probably throw round 1 up tonight when I get home. I'm going to let everyone choose, Should we have comments for the application round or just wait until the end of round 1? PM me and let me know what you all think ^.^. Thanks.

Round 1

"Meet Da Family" Okay people for this round what I want is one body shot of your sim with thier significant other, and three freeshots of your mafia boy or girl being a family man or woman. Whichever the case may be, interacting at home with thier family. Maybe a little captioning as well nothing big, you don't need to write a novel. So four shots total, 1 bodyshot and 3 free shots.
If your sim doesn't have a significant other then someone they're very close to will work as well for the bodyshot.

Short Biography: Teague wasn't one to let anyone tell him what to do. In his early teens he left home and raised himself. Working two jobs to pay the bills, Teague rose above the poverty his parents wallowed in and after finishing high school, Teague began attending college. But it didn't last. Shortly after his first year, his father passed on and he was asked to take over the family business. Money laundering and tax evasion were just a couple of the crimes the Darvulia family was committing. Shortly after taking over the family's furniture business, he met Annah at a trendy club in downtown Atlanta. Instantly, he was in love.

Name: Annah Darvulia
Age: 27
Likes: comedians, strong men, smoking, pool
Dislikes: cowards, cops, short answers, teen pregnancies, country music,
Short Biography: Annah was born in a small town in Georgia to Sarah and Nicholas Thompson. As an only child born into a privelaged family, Annah was as spoiled as they come. Although her parents gave her all they could, Annah wanted a different life. Moving into a small run-down apartment, Annah began to hang around the wrong crowds. Nights of drugs, alcohol and men drew Annah into the arms of Teague Darvulia. 6 months later, they married and he introduced her to the world of fast cash and excitement. After three years, Annah decided she wanted to have a child and she gave birth to their daughter, Eden, the heir to the Darvulian Empire.

Janey has never been good at understanding how other people feel, so she's resigned herself to never dating. This doesn't bother her much, however, and she spends a lot of time with friends and "business associates". Here she is with one of her best friends, Addie Murray, who is also affiliated with LeGrand's organization.

She's also not a family woman, having run away from home when she was a teenager. She considers her friends her family, especially Addie, Florence, and a bartender from Bourbon Street named Tom Burns.
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c333/darkscarab/snapshot_136c50b1_d3758f23.jpg
Janey is very interested in blues music (well, she has to be to exist in New Orleans), and often goes to shows with Tom and Addie...

"Meet da Family"

Significant Other: Bodyshot
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/SignificantOther.jpg
Have you ever danced on the grave of a sworn enemy? Me and the Lady do that sometimes; it's kinda romantic, you know?

Freeshot I: Being the Tough Guy
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/Freeshot1-1.jpg
Some people have a romantised version of what being a family man is, see. Right here, I was protecting my family from the thieving scum on the floor. Family is everything, and making sure they're safe at night is key.

Freeshot II: Givin' a Little Lovin'
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/Freeshot2b.jpg
Now listen up, 'cause I'm about to give you guys some good advice. Protecting the family is all well and good, but you gotta give your lady what she desires, too. A little love after killing isn't everyone's idea of a good time; but I'm a real family guy so I give her what she wants. It's not where you use it but how, got it?

Freeshot III: Being the Good Father
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/Freeshot3.jpg
This is my little girl, Felicity. Everyone has to know how to protect themself, and I think you can see right here that she's learning to bob and weave real good, just like her pops. That's her uncle right there, keeping to the corner. He gets a little camera shy.


If you want me to get a close-up on the bodyshot, let me know, :). And hopefully the second freeshot isn't too risqué, ;). There's nothing showing, I made sure, :lol:.

"While I don't have a significant, I do have a best friend who I see as being part of my family. Her name is Lucine and I can trust her with anything and everything. She has always been there for me and knows how to keep my collection of stolen valuables clean. She takes care of my house in Johannesburg while I'm away doing business."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v113/thebaron222/MafiaFamilyBodyshot2.jpg

"A few times every month I go back to Johannesburg where my daughter and Lucine live. I was raped when I was a teenager and got pregnant like most women I know around in Johannesburg. My house is situated in a dangerous part of town; it's hard to find somewhere where it isn't dangerous. I manage to keep security going 24/7. It may be the slums, but it's the place I know best."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v113/thebaron222/TS2/MafiaFreeshot.jpg

"Whenever I visit my daughter and I go to the park. Well...I know some people wouldn't consider it a park, but it has grass, sand, and plants so I take it as that. It's always fun to go there. My daughter is so carefree, she doesn't care about the trash that seems to show up there all the time."

*Blush* thank you...here's Florence, then.

http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c333/darkscarab/snapshot_136c50b1_3376dbe7.jpg
Florence has just started seeing a man named Nate Spelling, and they like to spend time together talking and watching movies. He's a high school teacher, and he doesn't know about her other job...she's afraid to tell him, but she knows she'll have to eventually.

As previously mentioned, Florence is very close with her sister, Susan, her brother Sam, and her parents Jon and Lisa. Lisa is Danny LeGrand's cousin, and she runs the money laundering branch of the business...She and Florence like baking together, even though Lisa can be quite clumsy...
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c333/darkscarab/snapshot_136c50b1_d37731c4.jpg
Lisa: Oh, the bread's done, I'll go get it.
Florence: Ack, Mom, no! You're gonna drop the cake!

Jon was a locksmith before he became part of the LeGrand mob. Now he's a safecracker, counterfeiter, and generally useful man. He doesn't always get along with his daughters, since his views on life differ drastically from theirs. He loves money and keeps to himself, but he does like to do the occasional job while his daughter watches his back.
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c333/darkscarab/snapshot_136c50b1_3376dea3.jpg
Susan refuses to get involved with the LeGrand family. Instead, she's a violinist in a small community orchestra. Sam, still in high school, doesn't want to be a mobster either. He's brilliant with computers, and he's trying to get into MIT. Money will not be a problem...He and Susan often stop by and have dinner with Florence and Nate.

Name: Vincent 'Iceman' Barret

Age: 35

Likes: My girls Chesa and Sally, books, any type of edged weapon, orchids, and cold-blooded revenge.

Dislikes: Cigarettes, stupidity, people calling me 'Vinny', and getting blood on my new suit.

Short Bio: Hey. Name's Vincent. Yeah, I know, pretty clichéd name for a mafia man, but whatever. It's the name that my mother, Sally, gave me. You can call me Vince. I'm sometimes called 'The Iceman', because I am notorius for being cold and merciless when I work.
Anyway, I grew up in a real quiet place, a nice townhouse in the ritzy area of town. At least, it was quiet until mother shot father. He was sleeping around, see? So mother shot him. I mean, she was the top crime boss in the city at the time. It's not as if she couldn't get away with it. Anyway, she shot dad. I didn't miss him. Neither did she.
In the years after, mother and I moved around a lot. She was busy running the organization, which she called 'the Firm', and I was busy moving up the Firm's ranks. Despite the fact that I was the Boss' son, I recieved no special treatment. I worked just as hard, if not harder than anyone else, becuase everyone I met seemed bound and determined to make things tougher for me. I had just gotten a major promotion, in fact, when I met her. Evelyn. The most beautiful woman in the world. As sappy as this sounds, it was love at first sight. We got married a few months later. We had our baby girl, Chesa, pretty quickly after that. Chesa's still little yet, but she already looks just like her mother did. Yea, I said did. She's dead. Evelyn was murdered by a gang of commissioned thugs a few years ago. I won't say exactly what happened to the thugs and thier employer, but I will say that their own mothers wouldn't have recognized them.
Anyway, Evelyn's death seemed to be the trigger for my career. I shot up through the Firm's ranks faster than anyone had even believed possible. And about a year ago, mother decided she was done. She stepped down, and I was unanimously chosen to be the new Boss.
So here I am, the youngest Boss in the Firm's history. And don't call me Vinny.

(sorry for the small novel :D)

Hey again. Vince here. So, you want to meet the family? Well, seeing as I'm the Firm Boss, my 'family' is a little too large to introduce to you, but I assume that by 'family', you meant my close family. Yea. That would be my girls. They'd like to meet you too.

My significant other? Well, that'd be my little girl, Chesa. (She likes when I play with her outside during my free time.) I'm not married, not since Evelyn's unfortunate demise, and I never will be again. That's not to say that I don't engage in occasional 'relations', but that's beside the point. Chesa has me wrapped around her five-year-old finger. Don't even think about touching her either. I've seen world leaders with less bodyguards than Chesa has. *sits back smugly*

My mother is the only blood member of my family- other than Chesa- that I give a **** about. I have the greatest respect for her. She doesn't run the Firm anymore, but she still drops in to see the place. And to see her son and grandchild, of course. But mostly to make sure that her thick-headed son isn't ruining things.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Mother.jpg

My girls get along so well, and it always makes me happy to see Chesa smile. That's Chesa's room by the way. *shudders* I despise pink. She likes it though.

I've also been teaching Chesa to walk. She's real smart. Mother, of course, was there to lend moral support.

"You've got to be joking... a significant other? I don't waste my time socializing. If something breathes, I'm garunteed to hate it. However, that doesn't stop some from trying to get close to me."

"Aw, Syd... you sayin' ya' don' like ya' own brotha?"

"Ethan... I tolerate you."

"Why, I think that might be the nicest thing to've come from ya' mouth. Let's have us a hug, huh?"

"Get the hell away from me..."

"The thing about having breasts in an Italian family? Kitchen duty. Yes, the Ciano women -Nonna, my mother, and I -are all crammed in a sweaty kitchen and forced to make dinner for the men as they lounge about and get drunk. I, of course, do not cook. If I were to cook? There could be a small chance the old man's fetuccini would be laced with arsenic."
http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/familydinner1.jpg
"And of course, the eventful end result of kitchen duty. I should really start eating out."
http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/familyadvice1v2.jpg
"One other thing about the Italian family dynamic. Every family member believes it is their duty to pry into the personal life of the daughter. 'How about that Sandroni boy? He seems nice!' - 'You know you won't be young forever; why don't you settle down?" - "I heard from Sabatina that Isolde's son is single now! I think you two would make the most gorgeous children, don't you, bambina?' The prying questions are neverending - I've learned over the years ignore them and occupy my time otherwise."


Family Members: Paolo (Father), Felicia (Mother), Nevia (Grandmother), Ethan (Brother), Giovanni (Uncle)

While Teague handles the financial side of the business, I get the wonderful job of beating the rats that continuously surface around us. This lovely lady, Robin, was discovered by me, snooping through Teague's things. She figured the house was empty.

I'm going to have it be out of 50 and at the end of the three rounds the scores will be totaled and whoever has the most points wins ^.^, also if you know anyone that could donate some prizes that would be a plus, I'm going to do Icons for the top three as well.

Silas is the only other member of my family to be in the business with me - it's no coincidence that we work for the same family. He usually works as my partner on hits, either driving the getaway car or giving me a chance to sneak up behind them and put a bullet through their head. Sure, it's not the best way to spend quality time with your older brother, but at least I know I can trust him.

Which leads me to my next point - disposing of the corpse. Man, do I love digging holes in the middle of a thunderstorm. Getting mud all over my suits... ugh. But, well, business is business, and if a body pops up at an inconveniant time you can probably guess the first two people who would end up disappearing.

Scores and comments-Round 1

Matteo-110/150

J1-It's obvious that Matty loves his family and his man, but a part of me would have liked to see pictures that showed that a bit more? Nice entry, none-the-less.

J2-I liked the way they looked at each other in the free shot. Very sexy.

J3-Your pictures are nice, but I would have liked to read a little bit more about them.

---------------
Vlad-134/150

J1-Very clear pictures. Vlad is very family oriented and has a lovely family.

J2-That is one good looking family. There was something I really loved about the body shot.

J3-Ah, Vlad. An S2C favorite... the pictures were done well. I liked the last one in particular.

---------------

Alexia-121/150

J1-Alexia definitely has a look about her that says: "Don't mess with me."

J2-Shots were simple but sweet.

J3-Very unique pictures. The hot tub one was my favorite.

---------------

Marcus-142/150

J1-L-o-v-e the second freeshot. I think it was very creative, a nice entry all around.

J2-Loved the dancing on the grave.

J3-Excellent pictures, and I loved the mini story as well. Great work!

---------------

Janey-115/150

J1-Nice background story, great pictures.

J2-Nice pics.

J3-Im glad to see a woman in this competition. Great pictures - I like the last one the best.

---------------

Rai'Li-91/150

J1-The pictures were a bit generic, maybe you could have been a bit more creative with your entry?

J2-The pics were nice, but simple.


J3-Nice work with the picture angles, but I would have liked to see a little more scenery.

---------------

Florence-123/150

J1-Again, you have a definite propensity for telling a good story and your pictures for this round were amazing.

J2-I liked the pic of her standing guard.

J3-I like seeing another woman in the mix! Very nice pictures, and your mini story was great as well.

---------------

Agnese-147/150

J1-Agnese is one tough and lovely lady. Great job.

J2-I chuckled over the "anger management issues". Nicely done.

J3-Amazing pictures! I loved the first one in particular. Great work

---------------

Eshe-146/150

J1-I applaud your unique entry and your creativity. Your pictures matched your words well to tell a story, and you always showed Eshe interacting with her daughter. And she is very close with Lucine, I see. Amazing entry.

J2-The outside slum look was great.

J3-Veeery nice pictures. Great work overall!

---------------

Sydney-145/150

J1-I love Sydney's attitude. My favourite picture is the one with her in the kitchen with her Mother.

J2-Viewing her pics makes you feel like you are getting to know the family.


J3-This entry was hilarious! I love the first picture and its commentary. Great work!

---------------

Xian-89/150

J1-Once again, very generic pictures. More interaction would have been nice. Maybe more in the background to throw more life into the pictures? I would definitely like to see your do more in the future rounds.

J2- Love her unique look, but in the body shot and the second free shot she was stiff.

J3-Your entries were very similar. I would have liked to see a little more diversity between the two.

---------------

Teague-116/150

J1-I would have liked to see Teague interact more with Eden and Annah to better show off his family-oriented side.

J2-Loved Freeshot #1. His expression is wonderful.

J3-What a serious guy! He has the same expression on his face for several of the pictures, which was a little bland for my taste. But good work overall.

---------------

Annah-108/150

J1-Again, more family interaction, especially with Eden, would have been nice, and maybe a change of scenary to give a bit of individuality to your entries?

J2-I think when the 2 characters have very similar pics there's the problem that I felt I've already seen these before.

J3-Your entries were also pretty similar, but they were done pretty well. Good work on the scenery - especially the pool table picture.

---------------

Vincent-139/150

J1-Vincent is very handsome and I can see that he's very into his family. This round was about family and you hit the nail right on the head. Loved your pictures, loved your entry.

J2-I liked the way he always was involved in the scene. Even when he was just watching he had an expression on his face and appeared to be actually watching.

J3-Great picture angles! I love the last picture to death.

---------------

Round Favorites

J1-Eshe Khamisi and Vincent Barret.

Your entries stood out in my mind because you really drove home the importance of family in the mafia life. Kudos.


J2-I went with Agnese 'Kitty' Corleone as my fav. But it was so close. I flipped and I flopped trying to pick just one.

It's only one round, I've been in many contest and have gotten bad marks. Its a part of contests and if you give up everytime you get a bad comment or mark then you'll never learn, people don't give up when only one round has passed. I used to constantly let the marks and comments get to me, but these contests help people to work thier skills and get better and better at it. Don't let one bad experience ruin it for you, I happen to like Teague and Annah. I hope I can convince you to stay in :(.

Last picture coming later.

A typical night for Janey. She oversees the unloading of one of LeGrand's many drug smuggling ships, the Maria, making sure that the drugs are undamaged by water, and that no one has been skimming a bit for themselves.
Unfortunately...there's a crate missing. She drags the ship's captain into the warehouse, where they're less likely to be disturbed, and interrogates him about the whereabouts of the crate.

"Please, I didn't know it was missing, the storm must have washed it overboard..." He blubbers. Janey hisses.
"You f*king idiot! Do you even comprehend what you've done? That's over ten thousand dollars in heroin you just lost!" She shouts, knocking him to the floor. The captain mumbles something, and she leans over him to hear what he has to say.
"I can repay you...I've got some money hidden away...Danny can have it, all of it..."
"When?" Janey says sharply. The captain whimpers as the gun brushes his cheek.
"Next week-" He gasps, and clutches at her knee in a misplaced appeal to her better nature. Janey brushes it away with a curl of her lip.

"Next week, then...and if you even think about skipping town, I've got a contact in the police force who is excellent at finding scum like you. Meet me at 11 right here." She leaves the captain to collapse, walking out of the warehouse and holstering her gun.

As Kakashi said, the comments were made to be help one become better. I was hesitant to make comments at all because A.) it takes much more time to comment on every entry and B.) there is always a chance that someone will take a comment the wrong way.

I personally tried to stay positive and there was nothing wrong with your entry and you should not be discouraged. I can't even read through the scores to see how everyone did because I feel so bad that you feel that way, Mnemosyne.

Nothin' like a "night" off

Posing for Eden
Eden begged me to pose for her snowman. She wanted to make a ballerina of "mommy" out of snow. Needless to say, when she finished it looked nothing like me!
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j294/WykydSyn/Mafia%20contest/annah_posing.jpg

Time Alone
After posing for Eden, I went inside and noticed a path of roses leading to the bathroom. Inside, I found a hot bubble bath waiting for me. So I indulged myself for a while, enjoying the silence and solitude.

Cops and Robbers
After my bath, I found my slinkiest lingerie waiting for me and after dressing, I followed another path of roses into my bedroom. There, Teague was waiting for me, handcuffs dangling from his fingers. I think you can figure out how the rest of my night off went.

Nothin' Like a day off

Dancer?
I do a lot of things well, and perhaps dancing isn't one of them, but I promised Annah I'd practice. See, she entered us in this couples dance-a-thon sort of thing (I kind of tuned her out halfway through the conversation) and I have to practice early in the morning. There's usually a lot of my pals that come over and there's no way in hell I'm going to let them see me...dancing.
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j294/WykydSyn/Mafia%20contest/teague_dancing.jpg

I'm not playing with dolls, I swear.
After breakfast, my babygirl decided she needed someone to play the part of Ken to her Barbie. So, I sat down with her and let her have her fun. Now, you didn't see this...you hear. This picture could ruin everything I've worked so hard towards if it fell into the wrong hands.

Family Fun
Don't get me wrong, I love my family, but I must give off a certain aura while taking care of my business and dealing with those in the underworld. Before lunch, I found myself spending hours jumping on our $1,000 couch with Eden while my wife..well.. lets loose as well.

My portrait
After putting a smile on Eden's face, I usually spend the rest of my day off posing for my portrait. Behind me is the gorgeous beauty I restored myself. Cornelius (a close and dear friend of mine) says he's almost finished with the painting. I can't wait to see the end result.

Also Mnemosyne you've definantly improved on both round 2 and round 3 :D, they look really good. I love the shot where she's posing for the snowman and the effect of the snow fits perfectly great job. Everyone's round 2's look great :D, like I've said before glad I'm only an EJ ~.^. I know I promised icons but my skills at making them are horrible, if you want one just PM me. Or if someone could make some? That would be nice too :D.

A day in my life, huh? You really want to follow me around for a day? Whatever. Your funeral.

A normal day for is me actually not all that exciting. Lots of paperwork. I've got to keep the Firm running smoothly, you know? So I spend most of my time managing finances in my office and coming up with new schemes to take over more of Sim City.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Sinister.jpg

Occasionally, though, something important comes up. Then I grab my bodyguard- Tony, the mean-looking thug in the red blazer- and head out to take care of the problem myself. See this man, the old *******? Yea, his name is Bob. He's one of my underlings, not important as far as the grand scheme goes, but a significant amount of money goes through his hands every day. Unfortunately for Bob, he's been losing cash left and right. Not large amounts, but still. It's a thin line between petty theft and seriously pissing me off. Almost non-existent, actually.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Office.jpg

Anyway, Bob's been stealing from the Firm for quite a while now. So he's getting a visit from me and Tony. He's gonna pay for every single dime he's 'lost'. And not out of his wallet.
And no, I almost never do this part myself anymore. I prefer to have a drink and watch. I had enough of that when I was in the lower ranks of the Firm. But that's not to say I'm not good at it...

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Mugging.jpg

See, this part, after the traitor's paid for his crimes, is usually Tony's job. He has to go get rid of the evidence. Tonight, though, I decided to come along and make sure he's doing everything right. Of course, the police are all in my pocket, so it doesn't really matter, but even I'm not completely immune to murder charges. As long as the police don't find anything physical, it doesn't matter what they suspect. They can't touch me.

0_o Sorry for the extremely bloody and violent images. I have a morbid mind.

I have three of my pictures done; I'll get my last tomorrow. Started to do the fourth one, and then changed my mind about it. :).


A Day in the Life

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/AtWork1Edit.jpg
This is probably one of the mst relaxed moments of my day, though it means the long drive over to Atlantic City. The elusive "we" have a deal with the big guys down there. My people have a few highly successful casinos, and they know well enough that, by letting us deal on their turf they can get a lucrative slice of the dealings without doing anything. 'Course, my doll is there too, helping the gamblers let go of all that cash of theirs. Surprisingly it also means a little more family time, too. I don't have to stay in the casino all the time - I have men I trust to take care of things in my stead. I can get down to our second apartment and chill out until it's time to hit our home city.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/AtWork2Edit.jpg
On the seedier side of things, sometimes we discover a snitch or dirty cop who decided to go good again - these kinds of people can damage our business, and that means one thing: They sleep with the fishes.
Yeah, yeah, I hate to use a cliche but it works damn well, see? Body dumping is one of the crappiest parts, but someone has to do it. Usually we go out of our way to disguise the identity of the newly deceased - burning 'em up, taking their fingers or teeth to hold of fingerprinting of dental records. But occasionally, we want the top brass over at the police station to know we're watching.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/AtWork4.jpg
Maybe you recognise this guy. He was over in Atlantic City, cheating. It's one thing for us to take money from him, but another for him to try the same game on us. Call it double-standards, I don't give a rats ass. Cheating us out of our money is not allowed. Those who do either get warned or get dead. The ones who get away with a warning never do it again...in fact, they have a tendency to get outta dodge as fast as possible.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/AtWork4-1.jpg
Something that can be seen as relaxing in some respects, on account of the standing around outside, is running surveillance. When the Big Man is either meeting someone in some inconspicious place such as his favourite downtown cafe, we watch over him to make sure no one on the other side gets trigger happy. But it can happen, just like this. We got into a shoot out. We won, I went home and had dinner with the wife, played with the baby; the enemy took a free ride down to the County morgue.

Woo, finally done just after midnight GMT time. Enjoy, I tried to make them better than last time. Rai Li first!

----

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_7372f3c8_3389cb70.jpg
Everyday, Rai starts her job by reporting in to the Boss, one rich cunning bastard named Robert De Lore. He's okay in her opinion, mainly because he gives her lots of action, prefers men so she doesn't have to worry about him messing with her or her girlfriend, and the fact that he's promised her one of Zax and Sephira's kittens when they're born. She also enjoys shooting the breeze with Xahnu, Xian's cousin, when the cats or Robert are not distracting him.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_3389d860.jpg
Sometimes you just get new or stupid people to the area who need a helping hint about the way things work around here. Once they get that in their thick skulls, they may even become useful in the future.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_1389e9a5.jpg

Rai Li enjoys her job in all its variety, but one of the things she likes the best is when De Lore sends her and Xian out to 'remove' some businessman or scummy lawyer that has annoyed him for some reason from his sight. Like this Jack Something-or-other-son guy.

SilentPsycho
24th Jun 2007, 1:26 AM
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_7372f3c8_9389cbd9.jpg
Xian Li really respects the Boss. Not only did he give her a job, but he's one of the few people her cousin Xahnu trusts. He really looks after those he cares for, so keeping this in mind Xian does her best to get Rai Li into work on time.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_7372f3c8_1389cc39.jpg
One of the many different jobs De Lore gives his Enforcers is that of bodygaurd duty. Xian likes this job the most as it allows her to chat with her cousin, and while Rai is in Robert's mansion, she's less likely to get into trouble so Xian can rest a little easier without having to worry about bailing her partner out so much.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_3389d6fc.jpg
As ever, Xian's main expertise are the areas where her partner doesn't have the patience for or can't handle. Stuff like calmly explaining why paying De Lore protection money is better than no doing it, or explaining why setting up business in this aera without De Lore's permission is not a good idea, and writing up the reports afterwards. Meanwhile, she often uses Rai in order to demonstrate what would happen if they do not agree.

There's nothing so exhilirating as killing a man - a woman - whoever - whatever. And making the last few moments of that person's life unbearbly painful - making them cry, beg, and scream for relief is what really makes life really worth living. That's why I do it. That's why I kill. Not for the benefit of the family or the Outfit - for the benefit of myself.

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/torment1.jpg

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/torment2.jpg

However, the only benefit is psychological. When your old man is a money-grubbing, cheapskate gaffer, there's no money exchanged. As his child, in his mind, I'm a slave - free labor. Why buy the milk when you've got a cow, huh?! Lousy, no-good...

But, as I was saying... I have to make an earning somehow. Dear lord, I wish I could find another way. Unforetuneately for my blood-pressure, I bus tables for Ferdie Diederich's local cafe, where one must refrain from slamming the heads of customers into the place settings before them.

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/bussing1.jpg

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/bussing2.jpg

If I have to mop up one more mess of Ferdie "Chef Man!" Diederich's famous strudel whilst some bleach-headed ninny demands another glass of water, I swear I'm bringing out the Tommy from the backroom. Guess who won't be bussing those pools of blood. Just guess.

I stepped outside to confront him. He saw my sword at the ready, dropped the cat, and ran inside.

When it's her day off, Xian Li likes both staying in and going out. At home, while Rai Li is busy either in the gym or working on the car, Xian prefers the quieter ways to relax, such as playing chess or reading her favourite books.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_338af53b.jpg
When she does go out, Xian and Rai often head to the local pub, the Nightwolf, which is a gay/bi/lesbian/transgender-friendly place owned by De Lore. Xian often enjoys playing pool, to the point that she plans to save up some money to buy a pool table for home. Admittedly, she's very good at it, something that De Lore has hinted he might make use of in the future.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_138b0894.jpg
...And of course on their day off, the couple do the obvious.

SilentPsycho
24th Jun 2007, 11:28 PM
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_f38af458.jpg
Thanks to her Irish heritage, Rai likes to drink. A LOT. Hanging out at the Nightwolf, the drink flows cheaply, thanks to her De Lore employee discount, which is good as she can out-drink anyone else there, even the men.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_738af74e.jpg
Back in Belfast, Rai used to pay the bills by singing at local pubs and bars. Of course, this lead to certain problems with drunk male patrons, which ultimately lead to her fast exit from the country. Now, while she doesn't need the money, she still enjoys turning heads once she starts to sing.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_936c839d_d38afa8d.jpg
Rai would be the first to tell you that she is the least likely person to win the Nobel Peace Prize. When she's at home, if she's not attached to Xian, then she's in the gym, working out some stress. Trust me, it's cheaper and less messy than what would happen if she didn't have a punching bag to vent herself on.

The Relaxing Days Off...

"A Day in the Life"


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/OffDutyDinner1.jpg
I try and get a relaxing Sunday off a week, but of course work obligations can always get in the way of that. But when the family and I can wind down, we have a family meal at my mother's. I'm telling you, she make the best Sunday roast, with chicken and gravy...the works. Don't you dare make fun of the old doilies and frills on the wall, she's the kinda lady who likes to collect and let that be the end of it. I'm so glad you could join us for the last meal, you know it's a prime position where you sat, at the head of the table. You're lucky - it means we like you.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/OffDutyBowling2.jpg
After dinner, toward the evening, the family work off the huge four course meal with a trip to the bowling alley. We own it, of course, and get in free. It just makes things easier, being able to waltz right through and get down to me beating the boys. I see you grinning there, don't think I can't see you - don't make fun of my bowling gear. It looks horrible, but the wife likes seeing me in a uniform, if you get my drift.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/OffDutyRave3.jpg
Come late evening and onto real early morning, if we're down near the beach we go along to this partial open-air rave. My girls a knock out as the DJ, and it's hot seeing her groove to the music. I wind down, chilling out after the hard work of the week before and get ready for the one ahead. You never know what's around the corner, so it pays to let your hair down once in a while. Dancing like that, it makes me feel free.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/Sam_Monoceros/Sim%20Competition/OffDutySex4.jpg

Sleeping is not generally a routine of mine. At 2:00 in the morning, instead of partaking in the REM cycle, I indulge myself with the literary genius of William Shakespeare. Yorick is the only company I enjoy having around. He's perfectly silent, and amazingly macabre.

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/boxing1.jpg
Alas, a whole day cannot be spent in the pages of a masterpiece - one must persue some sort of physical activity. My way of keeping in shape and maintaining strength to kick my brother's arse... is boxing. There's a gymnasium down the street from Ferdie's and every lunch hour I'm there, pounding the fluff out of the bags.

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/argue2.jpg
Those skills I gain boxing everyday, I really ought to practice on a particularily aggravating man - Vlad LaCroix. Somehow or another, nearly everyday, our paths cross. I, of course, make my displeasure of his stalking me clear, and he chooses to treat me like a small child or a puppy of sorts. Culone!

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h61/Kaktopus/Sydie/icecreamfight1.jpg
...And yet, I always find myself back at Ferdie's eating ice cream with the man. He's a presumptuous jerk and believes he has the right to steal bites of my dessert whenever he feels like it. Really, I ought to either shoot him or lock him in the trunk of an abandoned car to let him rot... Hmmm... The latter sounds like a suberb idea. Heh.

BusterBrown
29th Jun 2007, 4:56 AM
A day off, huh?
That's not a real common thing for me, because I'm always busy, but whenever free time does roll around, I enjoy it.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Library.jpg

Chesa usually claims most of my time. She likes it when I read fairy tales to her. She's surprisingly smart for a little girl, and she always has the most interesting points of view on the stories. For example, here I'm reading Cinderella to her, and she wanted to know why Cinderella didn't hire a hitman to take out the evil stepmother. Yea, her view of the world is a little warped. With me as a father, what do you expect?

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Cringe.jpg

My mother also likes to visit on my days off and make sure that I'm still man enough to run her organization. Now, my mother may look and sometimes even act like a sweet old lady, but you have to remember, she built the Firm from the ground up and ran it for forty-three years. I'm more than a match for almost everyone when I fight hand-to-hand, but my mother can still make me cry like a two-year-old. And if you tell anyone, you know what'll happen.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/Mustang.jpg

Whatever free time I don't spend with Chesa or my mother, though, I usually spend by myself. It's nice to get away from all the noise and people, you know? Sometimes I take a spin in my lovely little mustang here. I love that car. And because no one dares to stop me and give me a ticket, I can drive as fast as I want to.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb293/BusterBrownDog/ShootingGallery.jpg

Other times I practice my shooting. I'm more of a sword-slinger type, but the fool that brings a sword to a gunfight is going to get shot, so I make sure that all my skills are up to par. I have mentioned before that the bodyguard isn't really necessary, right? I only bring him because my mother would skin me alive if I didn't. She worries too much. Just because she can wipe the floor with my face doesn't mean anyone else can.

I'm only missing 3 entries
Vlad
Janey
Matteo

I'll have the judges do comments and round faves again as this is the last round. Last time I didn't because I was ill but i'm back to normal now besides my back injury that seems to be going away as well :). And I know at least one of my judges was busy last time.

If you want to classify sleeping until noon as a hobby, well, it's Janey's favorite thing to do. Since she's a natural night owl, she takes every opportunity to sleep in.

She also loves reading passionately: There's nothing she enjoys more than a good book and a cold beer.

Most afternoons are spent in the usual persuits- buying groceries, cleaning her guns, walking the dog...all part of the daily routine.

Evenings are usually spent socializing. She, Addie, Florence, and Tom go out to eat, as long as Florence and Janey don't talk business at the table. They meet most Thursdays at Bontemps, a diner that has failed more FDA tests than there are stars in the sky, and is usually deserted...but it serves wonderful food, so they put up with the spotted counters and dirty glasses.

I sent my scores in yesterday morning thinking the round ended already (I think originally it ended the 29th but the dates have changed). I rechecked the thread and saw Julieth's entry this morning and that the date for closing wasn't what I remembered so I sent in her score earlier this morning. I haven't heard from Kakashi_Hatake yet.

Round 3 Scores, Comments and Round Faves
Alexia(112/150)
J1-As beautiful as Alexia is I wish there were a little more than just her in her pics.
J2-I liked the last picture especially. The others were a bit plain, but I did like the bright colors included in all the pictures.
J3-She's a beautiful sim, but I agree with the judges I wish there was a bit more going on in her pics than just focusing on her.


Marcus(143/150)
J1-All your pics were wonderful, but the dancing pic was my favorite. I loved the color and composition of it.
J2-Not only was the qualifying text hilarious, I loooved your pictures! The family shot at the dinner table was so cute, and the "dirty" picture was a nice touch (no pun intended). Well done!
J3-I love Marcus, especially the famiy dinner picture. Plus the time and effort you've put into your pictures really shows, they're gorgeous.

Rai(114/150)
J1-These were your best pics so far. It was wonderful to see Rai doing things in every picture.
J2-I liked the activities you chose, but the pictures were a little lacking for me. The first was probably my favorite, but then again who doesnt like a little karaoke?
J3-Great pictures, and very active. I enjoyed looking at them.

Janey(131/150)
J1-Very nice pics. I like the look of her apartment.
J2-I like your pictures, and I like the ideas you used for what Janey likes to do to relax. The second picture with the book and the beer was awesome.
J3-I like the pictures and i love her apartment. My favorite pictures was the one with the dog playing fetch.

Kitty(135/150)
J1-Beautiful pics and Kitty is, as always, stunning.
J2-I loved the picture with the dog and puppies! All your pictures were thoroughly thought-out and well-executed. Well done.
J3-Gorgeous pictures, and kitty is beautiful as well.

Sydney(144/150)
J1-I've come to like Sydney. You've given her a great personality and your pictures do a great job showing that personality. I really liked the workout pic. The boxing ring in the back was such a nice detail and so well done.
J2-Great pictures and excellent mini-story! I loved all the pictures, but my favorite was the last one. Very good job!
J3-I love Sydney, she's pretty and she has a hot brother ~.^. I love your pictures and her attitude. Her personality definantly comes out in your pictures of her, well done.

Xian(112/150)
J1-It's much easier to tell that Xian is the subject of these pics than it has been. You've really progressed when I look at these pics compared to the ones from the first round. Nice job.
J2-Again, your pictures are a little bland for my taste. But I do like the activities outlined. Nice work overall.
J3-You've definantly improved with your pictures and have been consistant in improving, great Job.

Teague(129/150)
J1-The couch jumping pic was my favorite with the expression on his wife just too funny.
J2-Great pictures! I loved the story that went along with it as well. The playing on the couch picture was by far my favorite.
J3-Love the couch shot, you've improved alot and I'm glad you decided to stay in.

Annah(128/150)
J1-The steam/fog was a really nice touch in the bath pic. And the handcuffs were cute as well.
J2-The bubble bath picture was awesome! That is what I call good ole relaxation. Great work!
J3-I loved the steam/fog effect and the pictures were also nicely done. As I said above you've improved alot since the beginning.

Vincent(131/150)
J1-Love his mother kicking him. His position really worked in that pic by softening the normal stiff kicking stance of sims.
J2-Awesome pictures! The story-telling picture was so cute, and I loved the uniqueness of the last one. Great work!
J3-I love Vincent, and the picture of his mom kicking him is the best. Plus your pictures are active and are nice to look at, great job.

Round Favorites
J1-Sydney
J3-Vincent

...
Actually, I think Marcus is third and Vincent is fourth place. Marcus has three more points. Unless being one of the round faves counts for anything? Which I don't think it does...
Anyway, fourth place is fine! And Vincent was a round fav in every round, so I think that's pretty darn good. Thanks, I had fun, and cheers!!

Now, a rest from banging my head and repeating "No references to Final Fantasy VII, no references to Final Fantasy VII, no references to Final Fantasy VII..." You don't know how close Xian was to wearing a Turk's uniform, Rai Li being called Rena, and their boss being called Rufus. I slipped though and named his cats Zax and Sephira (Sephiroth).XD
