4.02 – Mrs Loves the Cold
We have a winner! Flamingo and Michelangelo shot out in front right away, and the other two couldn’t catch them; Flamingo made it over the line in the end. And there were over 20 votes this generation, thanks everyone!
On another note, updates are going to be less frequent now that uni is underway, and I’ve just gotten a promotion at work, so will be doing more actual work at work, instead of blogging. 😉
So, Cosette’s first action this chapter is to head over to the spouse house. Lol, rhyming.
And look who we find; it’s a newly toddlerfied Geneva Zalie! Looks like she got Heather’s blue eyes and Sinbad’s hair colour. Her mouth looks a bit strange; I think it’s Sinbad’s. Hopefully she’ll grow into it when she gets older.
Flamingo is awol though, so Cosette maxes out her relationship with the three adults in the house. She also autonomously fulfilled that “kiss Michelangelo” wish she rolled a while ago, but I was focusing on the rest of the family and didn’t catch it.
Wait, we’re not wooing just yet; first she’s going to ask him to move in. Dammit, except we already have 8 people in the house! Stupid twins and IFs. (I’m not going to move him in using MC, because when I tried that with Yttrium, we had all that trouble with getting her to work and pregnant. Trying the non-cheaty way this time!)
Flamingo’s career hair somehow got stuck on all his outfits, so I fixed him up; and customised the rest of his outfits (I may yet change them again; kind of want him to look different than he looked in the Chimerees). His favourite colour is pink, fave food is sushi and fave music is Indie. I really hope his child gets his awesome freckly skin.
My game is very glitchy at the moment. It took three or four tries to get Cosette and Flamingo in the shower together; they’d do the makeout, then drop their queues. The teens keep error trapping out of boarding school (thus why you might see them in the background of a photo or two). And I found this lady (who happens to be Flamingo’s other RI) taking her toddler on a stroll across the brook…
They go steady, and then Flamingo swoons. These two are so cute. I know I say that about all my couples, but it’s true. Especially these two; Cosette has rolled the wish to kiss Flamingo at least three times since their first kiss.
After proposing, Cosette goes back to the barre, and maxes her Athletic skill, as she had wished. I’m going to see if I can get her to max the Dance one also; hoping there might be some new animations at higher levels.
Mr Friendly Flamingo wants to have 8 friends, so I figured he should get to know the in-laws. It is surprisingly hard for him to become friends with Yttrium; I have to baby him every step of the way, choosing neutral topics rather than the “enthuse” ones, since she keeps reacting negatively. Even Enthuse About the Outdoors fails, though she Loves the Outdoors.
I found a great way to get Flamingo and Yttrium to make friends; fish together! She’s always doing it autonomously, and he needs to fish a lot for his LTW, so win!
(yes, I put spawners in the pond on the home lot ;))
Yeah, this happens a lot in the house atm. Bookworm Flamingo keeps rolling wants to read x books; so I’m getting him to read all the bait books, to kill the ‘learn bait for x fish’ wants as well.
(and why do they read at the dining table when there is a comfy chair and sofa right next to the bookshelf? SimLogic.)
And this is why I’ve been building up the friendship between Yttrium and Flamingo. I heard about this on the boolprop forums, and wanted to try it out (archaic though it is). Flamingo is going to ask Yttrium for her daughter’s hand.
Cosette finished work early to go into labour. Which, unfortunately, means that she’s stuck giving birth in the mismatching career outfit the game put her in. At home again, since I can’t remember whether we’re allowed hospital births as yet.
EDIT: I checked the rules…can’t find anything about being able to give birth at hospital. Meh, I don’t mind doing it at home, so might leave it that way until the Medical generation.
It’s a girl! Her name is Penny, after the character in Hairspray, which is the musical I chose for this generation. She’s a Loner who Loves the Heat. Pity she was born in winter. She likes Lime, Kids music and Ratatouille.
Cosette rolls the wish to get married right after giving birth; you will do so tomorrow, now that you finally have a day off. Stupid sports career and its afternoon shifts; knowing how long it takes guests to arrive and get seated and such, I didn’t throw the party when Cosette might need to run off in the middle of the party.
Since we now have access to a phone, we’re throwing a wedding party!
And it’s a disaster already; Tam is reading and Cosette is laughing at her. Shark Racket crashed the party, and is standing way too close to Nessa for comfort. Phoenix is still out haunting even though it’s almost 1pm. And Mikey came in werewolf form.
*sigh* I forgot that outdoor wedding in winter means outerwear. So much for the pretty formal outfits I made for these two. On a positive note, most of the guests found the chairs, yay! (even Phoenix, who is still out of her grave, witnessing her great-granddaughter’s wedding)
Though I forgot that it meant all the guests had to remember how to door. Some didn’t make it (and Tam got impaled, poor girl). Flamingo also lost interest; obviously the traffic jam at the door is way more important than cutting his wedding cake.
And now, since Flamingo is officially part of the family, we need to do some redecorating. The brown and orange are removed, replaced with pink and grey. Cosette’s room also gets some pink added, with most of the green now gone.
When he gets home, he plays for a while. Nothing of note comes up, but I haven’t played with time machines too much, so we’ll keep playing. Though no woohoo in there, we don’t want any more points lost with new babies!
Today (finally) the birthdays of the teens! Since they’re at boarding school there is no cake, and I’ll just show you their adult faces. I randomised the faces of the two IFs to stop them being Face One clones, btw.
This is Fantine, who was at home for the final three days of teenhood, due to constant glitching out of school. Her final trait is Savvy Sculptor (Handy, Computer Whiz, Mooch, Grumpy), and her LTW is Descendant of Da Vinci.
I’m about 99% sure Eponine is a Yttrium clone; thank goodness she wasn’t the first born. Her final traits are: Neurotic, Dramatic, Artistic, Charismatic, Night Owl. Wow, a whole lot of –ic traits there. Her LTW is Star News Anchor. She graduated from Art school.
Damn, Marius is really hot! He has Fiyero’s nose and lips/mouth shape, but with the mouth width of Yttrium, along with everything else. His LTW is also Astronaut, and his final traits are: Adventurous, Absent-Minded, Athletic, Excitable, Handy.
I’m going to keep them over night, and see if the twins like their respective IFs. They will be uploaded shortly, when I can load up my non-CC game.
