“Death” – A Special Post for Purple Day

This post was written especially for Purple Day, a day to celebrate special sims who have died in our games (or, in my case, stories!).

I kept it very short and simple. I hope you enjoy.

Warning: HUGE Dust to Dust Spoilers ahead

——————————————————————————————————–

Hidden beneath the darkness of his ragged cowl, Death’s empty eyes took in the scene before him. Look at them… He couldn’t help but shake his head at the sight. They never seem to understand, do they? The ancient being thought to himself. Not until it’s too late…

Century after century, it was always the same – the fear, the sadness, the anger at his very existence. And these pathetic beings before him had been no different. He’d watched from the shadows for so long, eavesdropping on their conversations, and probing into their weak and simple minds…

So much prejudice.

So much ignorance.

“Death separates.”

“Death destroys.”

“Death brings pain”

“Death breaks hearts.”

“Death mocks.”

x5

“Death is hateful.”

“Death is cruel.”

And perhaps it was true. Some of it, at least. That much he could not deny.

But why can’t they understand? Death often wondered. Why don’t they see that there’s so much more?

Death heals the sick and the injured.

The hooded figure looked on with pride at the great gift he had given these silly mortals.

It was a thankless job, and a stressful one. But so rewarding, too… Even if it took the fools an entire lifetime to understand. Death could not help but chuckle to himself.

Death is just a part of life…  He smiled. And it can be beautiful too.

    Yes, yes, yes! That is a great view about death (and Death as well), and I agree with what’s said here 100%. Death IS complicated and brings in a lot of mixed feelings. But that’s part of what makes it so darn interesting and beautiful in all of its sadness.

    Very moving 🙂 It was nice to see the pictures once again 🙂 I still don’t understand how you “played” with Grim? How did you do it?

      If you have testingcheats on, you can hold down shift and click a sim and there’s an option that says “Add to family”. You can do it with the grim reaper too! 🙂 Also, some people have done that and then uploaded him to the gallery, so if you go to the gallery you can also download a playable grimmy there 🙂

        When i’ve done that, is there an option for him to “disappear” like he normally would in a cloud of black smoke?

        There isn’t 😦 The best I could ever do was back in chapter… 91? Shift+click a spot to make him teleport. He leaves a little cloud of black smoke on the ground but not that huge cloud he normally has 😦
