Last time, Cosette aged up to child and became best friends with grandpa Chance. Boq was a friendly not-evil spawn, who wanted to make friends with everyone he meets. Yttrium and Fiyero aged up to adults, Yttrium had a Mid Life Crisis and Fiyero switched careers for the final time – he’s now a self-employed Inventor.
Stinky Yttrium rolled the wish to woohoo with Fiyero; sure.
LMAO, I have not seen this moodlet before (it’s from Woohooer); too funny. Poor Yttrium isn’t faring too well at the moment, lots of negative moodlets!
Fiyero goes to collect his Inventor award.
Boq is going to try out the Alien Test Subject career!
Since he no longer has to sleep, Boq is studying charisma in the library; hopefully this will help him make friends quicker. Friendly trait always rolls ‘make friends’ wishes.
Yttrium has rolled another ‘be more muscular’ MLC wish. And I remembered we have a weights machine at home, so she’ll do that.
As per Cosette’s wish, we bought a play table.
It’s Snowflake Day, btw. And Tam is having a Feast Party…with a Swimwear dress code. Strange, but sure, Yttrium will go.
Fiyero takes the others to the Winter Festival, where there is no snow.
As I like to do, we’ll take a greeting card photo first.
Boq, Fiyero and Cosette are all hungry, so they wish to buy food from the food vendor.
Jess is ice skating.
Nessa and Chance are snowboarding.
Boq wished to get his face painted; I chose a happy clown.
And then, as Fiyero and Jess have wished, the family have a water balloon fight; since there’s no snow for a snowball one.
Uhm…well this party looks awkward.
Yttrium zeroes in on Sam, she needs to make friends so we’ll get notifications about her (as per my SP settings). But Tam looks rather rejected 😦
Fiyero and Jess won the water balloon fight.
Cosette also wanted to get her face painted; we chose snowflakes in honour of her Loves the Cold trait.
Jess asked to sketch Chance nude…then they both got this thought bubble. They’re in their room and Cosette is outside…why can she not sketch him?
Yay, midlife crisis is over.
Fiyero has rolled this wish; well, we can’t do it tonight, because Cosette is already asleep in the top bunk. Maybe another night.
Hey, it’s Bruce’s ghost…with clothes that don’t look very ghostly. Weird.
(I think it’s because I no longer have Bruce’s custom skin in the game…however when I tried to fix the ghost using MC, the game crashed, so we’ll leave him as he is)
In an attempt to complete some of the Inventing skill challenges, Fiyero is making lots of Floor Hygienators; it’s the cheapest Big Invention to make, and he’s trying to make 100.
Since I don’t know when we’ll have another sculptor in the family, Jess is sending off one of each of our gems to get the Sculptor’s Egg cut – it’s only available to L5 sculptors.
Yttrium got a promotion! That’s L5.
With Cosette at school, Jess asks Chance about a nude sketch once again. LMAO, love the pose!
Yttrium needs Handiness for work, so it’s her job to fix the washer Nessa broke.
Tam got a promotion; working her way up the political ladder once again.
The winter greeting card goes on the counter next to Jess and Chance’s summer one from Hidden Springs. I am so glad I was able to bring it over; it really looks like a home with these framed photos.
Cosette wanted to sign up for an afterschool class; we chose ballet.
Then she chose to do her homework in the snow outside school.
Sam got a promotion, too.
Fiyero sold more stuff at the consignment store, got a promotion to L5, and completed his LTW! Well done!
Since he needs more levels of logic in order to discover the last two potions, and also wishes to befriend his simbot, Fiyero and Nessa play chess.
Except they’re interrupted by Jess’ death. I just happened to have her active when the time came; she cancelled out yet another ‘makeout in car’ to ‘Expire’ 😦
Walls down shot to show Grim and Chance outside.
And apparently Grim can’t float through the door when Jess’ ghost is in the way…
Jess was a great heir, maxing four skills, expanding the family’s ownership of multiple towns, and overseeing two moves.
Chance’s first activity after losing his wife is to make an igloo. Which he then sleeps in. Seems he doesn’t want to sleep in the bed he shared with his wife 😦
Nessa thinks the best way to cheer Fiyero up is to have a pillow fight.
Boq is an Evil sim who washes up his own plates then has a melt down over Jess.
Since Cosette slept on the bottom bunk this time, Fiyero can fulfil his wish to sleep on the top.
I will never get over how weird restoring brain power is.
Fiyero and Chance try to cheer one another up.
I’m wary that Chance’s lifebar is also full, so we’ll try to fulfil some of his wishes. The first is to ice skate on a pond. The one at home is too small, so he goes out to a fishing spot.
He also wishes to teach Boq to drive, so here we go.
Yay, it’s finally Spring! Now Yttrium can get to work on her gardening skill rather than just read books.
And the day after Jess dies, we receive all the gems she sent off to be sculpted.
Dammit, how did Yttrium get pregnant? I think it’s the massage table’s fault; the sims love to give one another massages autonomously. That moodlet with the white cocoon is from the table; looks like she was given a romantic one. Oh well, another -5 points. But we get to have another baby, so yay.
Cosette is so cute in her ballet outfit.
This is Pansy Prudence; she was invited to come home with Cosette after school, but Cosette had her ballet recital.
To make up for the lateness, Cosette invites her to stay over; this is the point of bunk beds, after all.
Fiyero got another promotion; I believe this is L6.
And he’s always rolling romantic wishes for Yttrium; check out his wish panel!
Cosette is a cutie, always rolling nice wishes like this.
And she does her homework without prompting; good thing she doesn’t have any competition for heir, they’d be hard pressed to outdo her.
Sam is dating Shark Racket!
Just to show that they do care about Jess being gone… I just don’t bother to take pictures every time they grieve – otherwise this chapter would be nothing but grieving pictures.
Speaking of grieving… the first time he slept in the double bed since Jess died, and now Chance is dying himself.
Yttrium is the only one home.
Chance doesn’t want to go, but Grim isn’t having any of it.
The next morning… death brings life.
We finally have another gnome. Took Fiyero long enough to make a gnome.
He psychically knows about the nooboo, and wants it to be a girl. Yttrium wants a boy, I believe.
Jess and Chance are laid to rest next to Jess’ parents, each with a representation of their favourite things. (I have no idea why Bruce’s grave is a different colour to the rest, he definitely died of old age)
Sam has another RI.
Boq has now rolled this. Interesting…
Yttrium can finally start focusing on the gardening part of her career.
Cosette looks for her best friend.
Boq has been following Bunny all over town, trying to become best friends with her; she’s so rarely at home, it’s hard to pin her down!
Our first haunting in Twinbrook. Hi Phoenix!
Hey, a popup about Tam. She finally found a man. (lol, that kind of rhymes…)
Chance is out tonight, too. He barely gave us time to miss him!
Yttrium is throwing herself into her work; this is L7.
Now Cosette is building a memorial sand sculpture to her grandpa.
But she has a friend over, this is Joe Hunter. He has a rather odd looking nose.
This is the Prudence house – Boq is going to try and fulfil his wish to kiss Parker Prudence.
He’s making kind of a weird face here, but Parker isn’t altogether bad looking.
Every little thing Boq learns about him makes us like him more. He’s single… a compatible sign… and gay.
A little flirting.
An amorous hug.
And Boq has his first kiss!
And also, it’s baby time!
It’s a baby girl!
…and a baby boy. Yep, twins.
The girl is Eponine and the boy Marius, after the other two sides of Cosette’s love triangle in Les Miserablés. Eponine is a Neurotic Artist who likes Green, Classical music and Cobbler. Marius is an Excitable Athlete who likes Spiceberry, Geek Rock and Ceviche.
They have taken over Jess and Chance’s old bedroom.
Everyone loves the babies. It’s especially useful having Fiyero and Boq awake to take care of them at night when the others are sleeping.
And that’s a decent place to finish. Next chapter, we see what Cosette looks like as a teenager!
