Previously, the twins aged up into adorable toddlers, Yttrium got Spring Dance Queen from the Spring Fesitval, and Boq and Cosette went to prom.
This weekend, the family are going on an outing! To the beach. Well, the river, since Twinbrook doesn’t have an actual ocean.
Nessa plays in the sand.
Yttrium read on her blanket while keeping an eye on the babies.
Cosette plays in the water.
I then tried to have her take Eponine to play in the water, but no matter what I did, I didn’t get the option. But you can still check out the cute swim outfit I made for Eponine.
Meanwhile, Fiyero picks flowers…that grow on the beach. Sure, that makes sense.
The babies sleep in the shade of the beach umbrella.
That night, it’s their birthday! Eponine first; she rolled Night Owl.
And then Marius, rolling Absent-Minded.
It’s also Boq’s YA birthday! So he gets a cake and a family celebration.
Eponine is a neurotic artist, so I went with a bit of a quirky theme for her.
Athletic Marius gets a sporty makeover. He and Eponine have almost the same face, though different colouring.
Boq is quite attractive for an alien; his nose isn’t too thin, and he has pointy ears!
The twins’ updated bedroom. Spiceberry and green go very well together. Though they won’t be using the room too long – as per the rules, they’re off to boarding school shortly.
Yttrium immediately rolled this upon Eponine’s age-up. Well, she is going to boarding school, but I was thinking Art School, since she’s Artistic.
Instead of choosing the obvious Emperor of Evil LTW for Boq, I chose Fashion Phenomenon (max Stylist career). So he gets a skill in painting overnight.
Eponine is already being fun; neurotic and artistic means lots of wishes!
Our newly child-ified twins play in the treehouse together. They’re friends already, thanks to the playtable.
Boq snuck out of the house, across the playground…
And all the way to the garden to scare Fiyero. Evil sims make me laugh sometimes.
Eponine wished to pillow fight with her mother, and for some reason they chose Boq & Nessa’s room to do so.
It’s Boq’s graduation, and our first glimpse of the twins cute formal outfits.
Haha, he was voted Most Likely to Take Over the World. He sure will, the Fashion world!
And then, before even going back to the house after graduation, Boq moves out.
Because I’ve never done it, and because he wished to do so, Fiyero plays with explosives.
Haha, warning. That’s okay, we could afford a fine…but we won’t do it again anyway.
Marius has been playing with his IF a lot; we renamed her Fantine when he was a toddler.
Yeah, I’m letting them out. We will need to make an IF real eventually, so why not now?
Marius immediately sets to becoming best friends with Fantine.
Eponine is still working on getting her IF to come out.
Cosette has rolled this LTW, which is exactly what we need for gen 4. Locked in!
Fiyero has some gifts for his children.
Haha, Eponine’s first neurotic freak out.
Soon fixed by Fiyero giving her a gift.
Valjean comes out to play.
Sam got a promotion. Which reminds me, now that everyone who knew them in Riverview is dead, I will put back the other simselves.
This as much of a family breakfast as the Rourkes ever have. Fiyero and Nessa are on different schedules to the others, since neither go to work.
Gratuitous shot of Fiyero’s chest, just because 😉
Giovanni Bayless came home from school with Cosette. He came over once before, the night she turned teen. He hasn’t grown into his face as yet.
Marius is now BFs with his IF, so is turning her real. +3 points 😀
She’s quite cute, though the black eyes scare me. Her name is Fantine, and her fave colour is pink, so I combined it with spiceberry in her outfits. She’s a Grumpy, Computer Whiz Mooch. Probably won’t be happy in the technology-free house, lol.
Nessa is exploring the catacombs after buying them out and renaming them. Seems she’s having fun.
Hehe, cute moodlets.
After playing tag together all yesterday afternoon, Eponine and her IF, Valjean, are now BFs, so he can be made real too.
He’s an Unlucky, Over-Emotional, Unstable IF made real. Wow, he’s a piece of work. His fave colour is orange, so we combined orange and green for his outfits. And he also has black eyes, strange.
Cosette made the honor roll, finally. She only has 4 days until YA! I don’t think either Yttrium or Fiyero will be finished with their careers by then, so gen 4 won’t start just yet.
As per the rules, Yttrium is enrolling the children (including IFs made real) into boarding school. This seems to be a slight conflict with the rules, since she shouldn’t be able to use phones or computers at this point, but whatever.
Cosette got a promotion, good work.
Boq also got a promotion; I forgot he was in the alien test subject career. Hopefully now that he’s maxed it, he will switch to become a Stylist, as per his LTW.
Chance came to visit again; all the ghosts seem to want to do is nap on the bunkbed…
Stupid rabbit gnomes, blocking the way into the garden. Good thing I can drag them from live mode. Actually, I might change things around, have two gates instead of one.
Marius is presiding over royal court.
While his sister paints.
The kids are eating quick meals; must mean we have no more leftovers. I’ll get Nessa on it.
But they’re off to boarding school now anyway, so we’ll have more food now.
Fiyero made it to level 8! Another $24k til the next promotion *sigh*
Naw, Tam, I’m sorry, but it doesn’t matter how crazy you are, Fiyero has met his perfect match.
I missed the shot, but Yttrium just fell over. Clumsy trait, lol. Her face is so cute. And she also has a tan from gardening outside.
Speaking of Tam, she got another promotion!
WTF? No? Why is Bruce acting like he’s alive? I’m going to accept it, just to see who this “Bruce Rourke” is.
Aand, they both throw a script error. Methinks Bruce’s ghost is glitched.
Oops, I sent Yttrium to Tam’s house to fulfil her wish to “give gift to Tam Simly”, only it seems we interrupted something… (this is Lincoln Baker, btw)
Fiyero and Cosette play soccer again. She’s getting better.
Parker and Boq are still together, nice.
Today, Fiyero is going to the junkyard. Since I normally buy all his scrap, and he wished to “dig through a junk pile”, I’m going to indulge him.
Lol, we can also blow stuff up in here without recriminations.
Holy crap, big splodey!
Fiyero was too close, but at least he’s only singed.
And before long, he has collected 1000 units. Another challenge complete.
He also drops off these guys – when they made the move to Twinbrook, both Fiyero and Cosette’s IF dolls made a reappearance.
Yttrium got a promotion and completed her LTW! She’s only at L9, so still one more level to complete the generation.
We have another rabbit gnome (6 in this picture). The new one is named Alesso, continuing our musician theme.
As per her wish, Cosette is working on becoming best friends with her father.
Then she continues to work on the barre; her Dancing Skill is only L1, but the skillbook says she’s Advanced.
Yttrium interrupts to find out her daughter’s gender preference.
Cosette is straight, so we’re looking for a male spouse. Since Cosette will be fulfilling the Sports career part of gen 4, her spouse can choose any previously unlocked career. Mostly the ones that haven’t been done are self-employed careers, so her options will either been gardeners, fishermen or sculptors.
Lol, it looks funny to ‘train sim’ on the barre.
Fiyero is still working hard to make flying fighters and floor hygienators, working on two skill challenges and his career at once.
Going to end this here, a little shorter than normal; next chapter we shall meet Cosette’s potential spouses!
