G'day! This is WikiBuilder1147. I noticed that positions in the news team are now open, and as such today I would like to introduce my proposal for a rejuvenated Fanon News section. I have noticed that for two years no Fanon News blogs have been produced. Whether this is due to a lack of need or readership at the time of discontinuation, I am not sure. However, I strongly believe that now is the time to bring the current affairs of the Fanon namespace to the public's attention. Hence, introducing The Sim's Pen.

The Sim's Pen
Welcome to the Pilot Issue of The Sim's Pen, The Sims Wiki's (proposed) irregularly published fanon section newspaper! In this edition of The Sim's Pen, as it is a pilot issue, the structure and features of TSP will be outlined below.
This section will, as the name suggests, inform the reader of the latest news concerning the fanon namespace. The Fanon News section may also be used to promote a promising new work.
In this section will be a list of the most popular fan fiction as of the publishing of the issue in which it is...erm...published. Sometimes it will be based on what I see in the "most viewed list" on the Fan fiction category page, sometimes it will be based on fan fiction that I have read, and sometimes it will be based on absolutely no consensus at all with the community and only on my personal preference! (Just joking). Example:
As the young Redwood family settles into what is supposed to be a somewhat relaxed lifestyle in the small, sleepy country town of Sunset Valley, they are thrust headfirst into the middle of a battle for supremacy over the town between the Landgraab and Alto families. It's a mystery as to what will happen next! (It hasn't been written yet!) Good read!
As a trio of friends drive across the appropriately alien landscape of Lunar Lakes, they encounter an...you guessed it! An alien! Laugh and/or cry (maybe? I haven't read the whole thing yet) as they set off on a journey of epic, science-fictiony proportions to help Ethan Tarmac (the extraterrestrial) return home. Pick it up now!
A poll concerning elements of the fanon section will be located here, where readers can vote for their favourite fanons, fan fictions, etc.
