Recap: Lots of birthdays happened. Benny started a relationship with the dishwasher and Sin started doing yoga
Before I start I want to apologise for the quality of the pictures in this update. I had a graphics driver update and it reset my sims graphics settings. It wasn’t until after this chapter was played that I realised that my graphics settings were WAAAAAAY lower than they should have been. Bloody NVidia.
Ok where to start… well, it’s Snowflake Day.Angel: I’m a Snow Angel!
Ionisis: Yes you are and you are adorable!
Charity rolled a wish to throw a gift giving party so i have her invite Forest, Envy and Mara.Faith Christiansen shows up. She must be a party crasher because it’s too much to hope that Forest actually got himself a girlfriend.
Charity got a plant. Benny a computer console.Forest got the same frog toy that his father got the previous Snowflake day… which made me think. I don’t think i ever took pictures of it but after Michael died i placed that frog doll on Michael’s side of the bed. When Forest got his toy i had an idea.Michael’s Frog doll now rests on his grave.Mara got photobombed by Sin.Poor Xander got coal… Sin recieved an easel. Envy a chess table. Dru got a “busy bee bouncing bobble” in that tiny little hat box. Buffy got a bike.Angel wasn’t particularly impressed with his rainbow light.Darla and Anya both received Snow bear toys.
The next morning… The Magician gnome puts on a show for the rest of the gnomes.
It’s a snow day and the kids are stuck home from school so i try and find something to keep them amused.Dru: C’mon Buffy! This looks fun. Don’t be frightened.
Buffy: I don’t think you understand. I’m Buffy. I don’t do fear.Dru: I can almost see our house from up here.
Mahmoud gets a promotion.
Later that night…Utopia: Hmmph
Dystopia: What the hell is wrong with you?Utopia: I’m not seeing a lot of beauty in my family tree at the moment. It’s like they arn’t even trying. AND WHY ARE YOU SMILING?Dystopia: Have you not seen Darla yet? I have a feeling she’s going to make Sarah Jessica Parker look attractive. I have the Prince in the bag.
The next morning is a Snow day yet again…by this point only the Darkskyes children have been to school only once.
I decided to fulfill as many of the kids wishes as i could.Angel: All i want is to increase my logic skill and play chess. Leave me alone woman. That’s right… walk on by..All Xander wishes for is to build igloos and snowmen. An army of snowmen to be exact.Xander: What? Don’t look at me like that. There are ghosts on the patio and they wander through my bedroom at night. That’s why i snow sculpt death.
Ionisis: Well, as long as you’re happy.
Xander: Who said anything about happy?
Ionisis: … moving on…The Claw has become the most popular object in the household overtaking even the rocking chairs.Buffy is putting in solid wishes to paint which kind of suprises me since she’s a disciplined, athletic, brave sim.
Benny: HEY! ATTENTION ME!
Benny: Pan that camera over to me now… I have something awesome to show you.Ionisis: What are you doing?
Benny: It’s my new trick!
Ionisis: Will it work?
Benny: Dunno. Benny: Katrina, if you’d be kind enough to step into the boxIonisis: Now what?Benny: Now I make her clothes disappear.
Ionisis: Good god you’ve turned into a perv. I’m gunna have to speak to charity and see if I can get her to agree to woo hoo with you before you strip another sim or molest another appliance.
Later that night…Sin: Are you really an alien?
Alien: Erm, yeah. Wanna see my space rocket?
Sin: Now you mention it… would you mind stipping off naked so i can paint you and your ..erm.. rocket?Alien: Sure i’d love to.
Sin: Really? That’s great. Now hurry up and get your kecks off.
Michael: I know where this is heading.Alien guy with stupid name: I think maybe another time though. There’s a fairly ugly child watching us through the upstairs window right now.
Sin: God I hate that kid… Sin: Wait! Don’t go! Does this mean I don’t get to ride your rocket?
The next morning… The snow has gone and it’s Spring! It’s also the weekend so the kids still don’t get to go to school.Anya: I Queen Anyanka, declare myself Heir… the rest of you can leave now.
Ionisis: That’s not quite how it works and unless you suprise me and grow up with a third eye and a second nose I doubt you’ll get heir.
Angel and Xander want to go sea swimming so they go to the beach.Angel: The water is freezing!
Ionisis: What do you expect, it was frozen yesterday.
Xander: RACE YOU!Xander: I’m winning!
Angel: You cheated, you started in front!
Mahmoud gets a promotion to level eight of his career and then ages to adult outside his work watching Charity’s show.
Because… I forgot him. In my defense there are 6 children not at school and two sims in a show career. I have enough to do without paying attention to Mahmoud.
Mahmoud: You can make it up to me by letting me have my cooking show back.
Mahmoud: Please. I rolled a wish for it.
Ionisis: No you didn’t
Anya and Angel both choose their Life Time Wishes.
Anya wants to be a superstar athlete… yeah, that was a surprise -_-
Angel wants the lifestyle of the rich and the famous.
It’s Monday morning and FINALLY the
little shits kids are off to school.
Buffy never bothered coming home from school. She just sat on the pavement and did her homework before biking back.
Sin gets a promotion. She’s evil so she chooses the counterfeiting branch.Dru: What’s 4 x 2?
Anya: It’s 6 +2.
Dru: Yes .. but whats the answer.
Anya: I can’t say it.. Mr Rincewind says I’m not to say it but he also says the world is flat.
Dru: Remind me never to ask you for help again.
The next morning it’s the Darkskyes triplets birthday but i’m witholding cake until after school and homework.
Benny: Oh my darling dishwasher, what have they done to you?
And then this happens…
My cat passes away. I actually got sick to the stomach when i saw it. I will never put any of my pets in a game again. He outlived my simself by quite a way.
I was pulled out of grieving for my pixelated cat but the camera panning.Anya doesn’t want to wait any longer and decides to grow up on the porch. Darla is throwing her self a party in the middle of the road at the other side of town and I have no idea why she’s there.Drusilla has gone cross eyed too. I guess they really didn’t want any more cake.
I love the teen birthdays. For me I find it’s the first time you really get an idea what the sim will really look like.
Drusilla.Since Dru had only been to school three times her trait was locked in. She’s a heavy sleeper. She’s not quite a Sin clone. She has her grandfathers ears and with Mahmoud’s smaller eyes she actually resembles Mike more than Sin. But is she Ugly enough to be heir? …No.
Despite only three days at school Darla had pulled an A so she got to roll her traits.
Ofc she is… I laughed so hard when she rolled this after the whole SJP joke.
Ladies and Gentlemen… I give you Ugg. Erm, i mean Darla.
Jackpot…. that is all I have to say.
Ionisis: I call this legacy done… Dystopia come claim the Prince!
Utopia: THATS NOT FAIR! There are 8 more generations to be born!
Ionisis: Ok fine.
Anya’s trait was also locked in. She’s now Nurturing. Sin clone with Mahmouds eye and hair colour. She dissapoints me.
The next morning…
Charity: When did we get all these gnomes?
Ionisis: They’ve been turning up slowly.
Charity: Are they multiplying?Ionisis: Looks like it.
After the kids and teens get back from school it’s birthday time again.
Xander rolls Technophobe.
Xander: I’m gunna be a rocker!
Ionisis: With an electric guitar?
Xander: NO! no no no i’m gunna rock unplugged. There’s something about Xander. He’s a cutie. Maybe i’m getting de-sensitized to the nose.
Buffy rolled Star Quality and “mom hair” which I fixed.and has developed a habit of pulling stupid faces.Buffy is green so of course I adore her.
Angel rolls Family-Oriented. Angel is a Charity clone with Benny’s eyes and a normal skin tone.
I’m leaving with Charity’s gig …Charity: How am I ever supposed to get promoted and get to the top of my career if death keeps showing up and taking my audience?
Grim: IT’S YOUR FAULT.
Charity: How do you figure that?
Grim: YOU BORED HER TO DEATH.
Next time: The teens get excited for Prom. Will Charity get a promotion? Will Benny get over his pervy midlife crisis?
Mahmoud: Will Mahmoud get his cooking show back?
