bacc challenge start...  

After looking through joedy_76's BACC challenge, I decided to take a stab at it. (I'm going to try to follow the instructions, but I'm not sure how well I'll do.  I will try my best, though.)



Lost things end up somewhere, basements, attics, closets...
..but, what about lost people?
Where do they end up?










The people that have been summoned to this island disappeared many moons ago, from many different eras.  They no longer resemble the people they once were, their families wouldn't recognize them, but they are trying to make a new life for themselves.

...

The Settlers



In 1971, D.B. Cooper hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft and extorted $200,000 in ransom.  He then parachuted out of the plane, never to be heard from again.  The FBI led an extensive search, but have yet to find him.
Now, D.B. finds himself in a new world, with a completely new appearance (he's never been green before).  He has also taken on the role of founder, since he always has grand plans, rolling around in his head.  Now if he can just convince the rest of the inhabitants of the island to go along with him...

...



Amelia Earhart needs no real introduction...
She is a famous pilot, who mysteriously disappeared when she made an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937. (Fred Noonan, her navigator, disappeared with her on this flight.)
Now, how she ended up on this island...
She doesn't know and neither does Fred, but they are determined to make the best of their situation.

...



Newlyweds Glen and Bessie Hyde, disappeared while attempting to run the rapids of the Colorado River, through the Grand Canyon.  Photographer Emery Kolb was one of the last people to see the couple before they disappeared in November 1928...
Glen and Bessie have no idea what happened to them, they remember rafting down the river and now they are on the island, with no memories in between.
(At least they're together and have a chance at living their lives.)

...



Felix Moncla and Robert Wilson are Air Force pilots who disappeared mysteriously while pursuing an unidentified flying object over Lake Superior in 1953.
  The U.S. Air Force reported that Moncla had crashed and that the "unknown" object was a misidentified Royal Canadian Air Force aircraft.
Felix knows better, though, they didn't crash...
...they were beamed to this strange island and given quite the extreme makeover.

...



Jean Spangler was an American dancer, model and actress that disappeared in October of 1949.  Many have presumed she was murdered, but she knows the truth...
She saw a bright, white light and ended up here..where exactly here is, Jean isn't quite sure.  At least, she has her looks and youth, even after all these years...
So, she has a second chance at her dreams.

...

How will all these people get along in this strange new world?  Will they be able to cope with the new technology that has developed and their new roles?
We'll just have to see...

Ooh, I love this idea! And the sims are all so lovely (Jean is my favourite, looks-wise, and D.B. is pretty gorgeous as well :D) Can't wait for more <3

Thank you Alle! I'm so glad others like my idea for characters! (Thought at first it might be a little creepy instead of fun.)

In echoing the comments before me: fantastic idea! It would have been eerie and mysterious enough on its own, but your including of actual lost humans from our world? Wonderful :D

Thanks Nimi! Glad there are others that like the idea for the characters!

Everything sounds so interesting! :)

Thanks maranatah! I'm not sure how interesting things will be to begin with, but once I get an idea of where to take the characters, hopefully the story will be better.

I've been mulling over the idea of doing a BACC but this was totally the push I needed.
I love love love this idea! Jean is just beautiful and the rest are lovely as well. :)

Brilliant idea! :D I didn't know about Cooper, but as soon as I saw Amelia Earhart, I practically squeed. You've made me wanna read up on their rl counterparts, and their stories now. Can't wait to follow your sim-versions as well :)

This is such a unique take on the BaCC! I love it!! There's something very enticing about having characters from our own world put into the sims. *goes to read the rest*
dutchxfan on January 7th, 2012 08:03 pm (UTC)
Aha! So *there* they are! Love the idea. Amelia is my favorite. She's such a badass woman.

What fun. I was reading down the list, and kept expecting to see Jimmy Hoffa.
