Fanfic / Written into the Narrative

Go To

A fan fiction set in the world of The Sims, published in the fanon section of the Sims Wiki. It follows the story of a wealthy young woman named Madeline Sycamore, who has been accidentally interfering with other people's timelines ever since she gained the powers to do so when she was a teen through a "fever." Now, she travels the world with her father, seeing the ways she's written herself into their narratives. Currently in the 3rd chapter in the first arc. The story can be read here.


As this story is currently being planned out, there are spoilers ahead, so beware.

Written into the Narrative provides examples of:

  • Adapted Out: Overall, there's a lot of this. Justified as this is an Alternate Universe.
  • Alternate Universe: Where Madeline's altered the timelines of the Sims so she's intertwined with their stories.
  • All There in the Manual: A lot of backstory and interesting information on the characters can be found on their separate pages on the wiki, not within the story itself.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: As expected from a story that takes place in the Sims universe, but doubly so when it features the majority of the pre-made characters.
  • Story Arc: Uses this to separate the towns, with chapters separating the timelines.
  • Time Travel: A variety. Madeline has the power to jump between timelines. However, once she's in one, she can't leave until her part of the narrative has been told.

  • Adultery: There's a lot of this, with Madeline usually painted as The Mistress. Justified as, unfortunately, this is a part of quite a lot of timelines. One obvious example is Daniel (who is married to Mary-Sue) with Madeline.

Pleasantview Arc:

  • Adapted Out: Kaylynn Langerak, the maid who Daniel originally has an affair with is not featured, instead being replaced by Madeline. Justified in the fact that this was how the Pleasant timeline was altered.
  • Dead Sparks: Daniel and Mary-Sue, who haven't loved each other for a long time. This is the reason that Daniel begins his affair. Mary-Sue was willing to give Daniel another chance, but this was all destroyed by his affair.
  • Happy Marriage Charade: Daniel and Mary-Sue.
    • Big Damn Kiss: For the record, this is how he decides to tell Mary-Sue about his affair.
  • Stepford Suburbia: Pleasantview.
