Wow, color me astonished.
Somebody who reads this blog likes to play with me. I checked about an hour before the poll closed, and we had a three-way tie with a gratifying 16 votes cast, which is the same state it had been for over 24 hours. I come back at the end of the poll and, yep, one more vote, this time pushing Forest over the edge.
From my informal statistical survey of simblog heir polls, Forest was the least likely to win. Most likely to win are attractive females. After that, sims whose physical appearance is distinctive from the rest of the heirs. Traits and the personality written in the blog seem least relevant. Oh, and Evil sims in particular almost never win.
All of this shows me that not only did I get 16 votes (removing mine, since I did vote), but pretty much everyone actually reads this blog. That’s just so awesome.
The inconvenient thing is that Sky is my choice for heir.
I honestly don’t think I can write Forest as the legacy patron. I’ve spent ages griping about how we never see Evil sims heading up legacies, particularly Wishacies where I think they’d be really interesting and different. But now that I have one, he’s developing as a character in ways that will make this legacy a bit too much for me if he’s he primary focus.
Additionally, I have some plans for Sky’s Commitment Issues.
But hmmm. I guess I will think about this. At the very least, Forest will get extra focus as his story unfolds.
