Previously at the Rourke house, the twins Marius and Eoponine aged up to children, turned their IFs real, and we sent all four off to boarding school. Fiyero had fun in the junkyard, and Yttrium completed her LTW.
By the way, I have now added Heather and Pink’s simselves into town once again – if you’d like your simself to be added, let me know!
After school, I sent Cosette to the (summer) festival, looking for someone I saw on the map… Eddie Kidd Daye! He’s the first of the potential spouses. Since she’s still a teen for one more day, we’re just making friends at the moment.
Yay, Fiyero maxed the logic skill! He should now be able to discover the last of the potions for this generation’s mini-challenge.
After befriending Eddie Kidd, Cosette goes home via the community gardens…where she runs into Michelangelo Terrey from Insanity Doesn’t Compare. He’s in his werewolf form, so not showing of his gorgeous genetics, but anyway. It was almost midnight by the time she met him, and she was exhausted, so making friends will have to wait until tomorrow.
Sam got another promotion; seems she’s good at being a criminal.
Bruce came out for a visit; choosing to read a handiness book all night.
He kept glitching as a ghost, so I finally had to kill him off again using MC – now he always looks like a ghost.
Sam is having a baby! LMAO, and I’ve just been rereading the Southern Prettacy, where Shark Racket caused much grief. Good luck, Sam.
Oops, failed on the potion discovery.
Yttrium needs handiness to get her last promotion, so she’s making the washing machine unbreakable.
This is the house I chucked the potentials in; bit of a step up from Fiyero’s potentials!
Eddie Kidd comes through the wall to let her in…while Flamingo Chimeree (who is not a ghost) goes through the door.
Except, see how close Cosette is to Eddie Kidd? Yeah, he route failed trying to let her in. And continued to do so again and again for 5 hours. The entire rest of the house was home, but he was always the one to come to the door. Even when I tried to move Cosette away from that spot, then he couldn’t find her to invite her in. *sigh* stupid sims.
When she finally made it into the house, Cosette sees that everyone is home. On the couch is Elijah Blue Olympus, and pink t-shirt is Flamingo Chimeree. Talking to Michelangelo is Heather’s simself!
Oi, Michelangelo, what are you doing??
Heather accepted the flowers then wandered off…and Michelangelo came to fight Eddie Kidd over Cosette’s attention.
Since it’s her birthday tonight, Cosette can’t stay at the house all night, so she invites Michelangelo over to her place.
Triple birthday! Nessa has shorted out in the rain (again), so Michelangelo is the only one to celebrate with them.
Cosette rolled Friendly to round out her traits. She has already picked her LTW of Superstar Athlete.
Fiyero and Yttrium are getting old! Yep, that’s what happens when you spend half your life trying to decide on the right partner, you’re old as your child comes of age.
(note to self: don’t let Cosette fall into the same trap)
Argh, and Yttrium has succumbed to the curse of the overalls! Don’t worry, we’ll fix those right up. Also note, Nessa has made a miraculous recovery in time to celebrate Yttrium’s birthday.
Sorry, Yttrium, Cosette is not becoming a scientist.
I’m not entirely happy with Cosette’s look, but after spending over half an hour going back and forth, it’s good enough. Trying to find something that’s sporty but not too tomboy. I reserve the right to change things if I find something better later.
She has Fiyero’s eye shape and mouth, Yttrium’s nose and chin/jaw. Nice combo!
Too bad there aren’t as many crazy outfits for elders as adults. Fiyero’s outfits are quite tame compared to his adult ones. But he’s such a cute elder.
For Yttrium, I went with her scientist vibe, a sensible grey suit. Grey is a great colour for matching clothes!
After cake, Cosette continues the mission to make friends with Michelangelo. And here is a better picture of his gorgeous genes without the werewolf interference. Pointy ears!
Oops, Yttrium broke the sink while trying to clean up the cake plates. Oh well, she needs handiness skill.
She has now wished to make it unbreakable. Go for it!
After making friends, Cosette asks Michelangelo to sleep over, and he accepts. Just as friends, mind you!
Someone is haunting the play table. Go ahead, no kids here to use it anyway.
Naw, Michelangelo decided to sleep in the bunk under Cosette. Which reminds me, I need to update Cosette’s room, now that she’s an adult.
Dammit, Sam! Between you and Heather, Cosette isn’t going to have any men to date. Though we’re still counting them as options unless someone goes steady…
It seems graduation is one of the few times even Insane sims get the right outfit.
Wow, apparently there are hookers in Twinbrook, who knew? This is Penny Pincher, and the kid is her daughter, Karrie.
LOL, and check it – the statue Fiyero blew up after Boq’s graduation is still gone! I thought they got replaced, but perhaps it’s too soon?
Most Popular, that’s a boring one. Though she does have a lot of friends from school, so it makes sense.
I haven’t seen this moodlet before, pretty cool! Obviously few of my sims get valedictorian…
Obligatory diploma toss shot.
Yttrium hunts down one of the new simselves to make friends; Pink is at the gym, so off she goes.
Oops, and when Pink turned off the stereo, she broke it. No worries, Yttrium will fix it later.
Uhoh, incompatible traits. Pink is grumpy and Yttrium is excitable.
Damn, I may need to turn off romantic SP for these guys.
Yay, Fiyero discovered the last potion! Mini-challenge complete, +3.
After graduation, Cosette invited her high school RI out to the bistro; she needs to eat, and also break up with him.
LMAO, caught Cosette in a sneeze.
A minute later, she is without RI.
LOL! I left Yttrium chatting with Pink, and I come back to find she’s training her new friend. Poor Pink!
Cosette tracks down Flamingo Chimeree at the festival. And they heart fart. Good signs.
Shared Friendly trait!
Man, the gym is busy today; every machine is in use!
Haha, and Tam fell on the treadmill.
Cosette has now rolled this! That was fast, she’s only just become friends with him.
The twins aged up to teen; these are their new traits. I made them over and re-enrolled them back into school.
Marius is pretty hot! Definitely a cool jock.
Eponine is more conscientious artist. We now see that she has a different nose to her brother (his is Fiyero’s); otherwise they both share most of Yttrium’s features. Eponine is pretty much a face clone, I believe.
Cosette gets her job in sports.
Boq and Parker are still going strong.
Collecting the rent on all our owned buildings on Monday pushes the family over the edge of $1m! Fiyero just keeps stacking up those LTH points.
Trying to track down one of the boys before work, Cosette only succeeds in finding Heather. But that’s okay, she can make friends so we get Heather SP stories too.
They both Love the Cold.
I was watching Heather and Cosette so I missed the shot, but Yttrium got promoted to L10! That’s Gen 3 cleared.
LMAO, I told Yttrium to go fishing off the beach. Instead of driving/walking around, she chooses to swim across the river.
Grr, Fiyero keeps being reset by ErrorTrap when he tries to sell stuff at the consignment store. I don’t think he’ll make it to the end of the Inventing career without it – the inventions are worth so much less selling from inventory.
So I’m counting Gen 3 as complete, with all restrictions lifted. That means we can have indoor plumbing and electric lights! And a landline phone; now we can (officially) have parties!
We have some house remodelling to do; this is the new enclosed laundry, with extra toilet.
I had to do a walls down shot for this two way bathroom; toilet and sink in one little room, shower and tub and counter/mirror in another.
I’m not going to change all the lights right now, only if I’m redecorating anyway. But they do get a better stove and dishwasher for the kitchen.
And I’ll also take the chance to update Cosette’s room for an adult.
Oops, just realised as I was editing these pics that I left the chandelier. Oh well.
As a Mad Scientist, Yttrium can now perform experiments on stuff. First up, the bed that Fiyero is sleeping in. I can’t see any difference in the motives or moodlets, it just has the pretty lights.
Now that I fixed the box issue, I bought the family another fixer upper car; Jess’ ghost is the first to find it.
Sam got another promotion. Storming up the career ladder, this one.
And she was heavily pregnant at the time, go Sam. Drew is a cute name.
Today Cosette is meeting Elijah Blue Olympus. No instant sparks, but they get along well enough.
…dude, isn’t that Tam’s RI? I know you guys live together, but really.
After only two days of work, Cosette has her first promotion!
I’ve had three of these popups in one night. Apparently these two really are meant for one another.
Oops, Fiyero tried to fix Nessa and got shocked himself. Weird, he has L9 Handiness. Maybe it’s the rain.
Tam got another promotion.
As did Pink, apparently she’s working in Medicine. Unlike Tam and Sam, Pink seems to choose a different career every time I put her in town.
Tracking down Michelangelo after work, Cosette decides pulling faces is the best way to make friends.
Good think he agrees!
She has now rolled up this wish. Apparently she’s no better at choosing a spouse than her father was.
Please Tam, let him go! He’s old enough to be your father, and he’s happily married.
Sam is pregnant again – she only had the other baby this morning!
Fiyero made another Inventing gnome.
We named him 5SOS, after 5 Seconds of Summer.
Doing a work opportunity allowed Cosette to max her promotion bar, and she got another promotion already.
She is jogging home, since she wants to level up her athletic skill.
Flamingo invited Cosette to a party! She’s definitely going.
Yttrium finally maxed handiness, as she had wished. Now to max fishing, then she can retire.
And all Fiyero’s inventing means he has also maxed handiness. All the things in the house are upgraded now.
At Flamingo’s party, Cosette flirts a bit, then considers his attractiveness.
10 out of 10.
Fiyero is a grumpy old man; here he’s harassing the new stereo. You can also see the old fashioned phone on the coffee table in the background; I finally have a use for a landline phone! I chose the one that comes with the Generations Store pack.
Cosette is now best friends with Elijah Blue. Now she just needs to pin down Eddie Kidd to befriend… although I searched all over (and with MC) and he seems to have disappeared… both from Cosette’s relationship panel and the town entirely.
Phoenix’s ghost is out tonight, and Nessa is making friends.
Cosette also finds Michelangelo blindingly stunning (though I do share that opinion).
Fiyero wished for it, then both he and Nessa wanted to play a game of sim gnubb. So sure.
Aw, Sam and Tam are losing their friendship 😦
Fiyero won the game!
Now that we have completed the requirements for generation 3, next chapter will begin generation 4! We’ll also have a heir poll, so you guys can choose Cosette’s spouse.
