Merit has spent her life as a wallflower, always overlooked, never the center of attention. It's not that she doesn't want companionship - she's just so shy and quiet, the rest of the world seems to rush by while she's left blinking in silent wonder at it all, always watching but never participating. So she has learned to enjoy the worlds that opened up to her in good books - where she could be the beautiful heroine that everyone thought was funny and clever and charming.

How to install:

Extract the .sim file from the RAR. Place in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims. Find her in the premade sim bin in Create a Sim.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I think she looks amazing, HP, she doesn't have a bubble face like the other sims who pop up in my neighborhood, and she doesn't come equipped with MANdables, aka a huge ass jaw either. Her uniqueness is what makes her so pretty, and that last shot is epic, golden ratio for the win.

I much prefer this, to a sims who was attacked by a make up drawer.

My thoughts exactly. I saw her and thought of the Mona Lisa right away.

I thought of a Vermeer when I first saw her. She's very beautiful HP.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

Thank you for sharing her, HP! She's got such an adorable, cute face. I saw her picture in the "how to make unique sims" thread and was wondering what kind of babies she'd make with your guy. Are you by any chance also sharing him?

She's very beautiful, but not in a model/barbie kind of way.. She looks very natural and that's one of the things I like about her. Thank you!!!

I love how you always make unusual-to-games, real-to-life sims! She's very lovely, and has a really nice storyline. :D
Just out of curiousity...what are the personality traits that you gave her in-game? I'd like to know what the creator gave her specifically for when I have her wandering around my town.

You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
