Previously, we found out that Penny is actually Michelangelo’s daughter, and a werewolf to boot! The true legitimate heir, Seaweed, was born along with his twin sister Maybelle.
I have finished my WYDC, but the edited pictures are on my external hard drive, which I left at work. So instead we have a Rourke update!
We begin this chapter with Fiyero selling enough Masterful inventions to reach Level 10 of the Inventing career! This is the first time I’ve maxed a self-employment career that wasn’t painting or sculpting, so I’m very excited.
Penny invited Geneva Zalie over after school; she wishes to make friends and play chess. Two birds, one stone.
Only one more Inventing challenge to go: detonate 150 objects. The Rourke have stacks of money, so I bought a bunch of chairs and tables and stacked them close together; hopefully more than one will blow at once.
(whoops, apparently I forgot to take a picture of the scene after the explosion; it blew about 10 chairs at once. Good, but not great)
Cosette and Flamingo (ship name Flamette? Cosingo?) are constantly all over one another; good choice for spouse, guys!
So much so that they’re apparently neglecting the babies. Seaweed has such a cute pouty face!
Grandpa to the rescue! (I swear I had a caption like this in a previous chapter…Fiyero really loves the babies)
Maybelle likes it better in her older sister’s room. Good thing she’s a cutie also.
The winter in Twinbrook is being annoying; keeps getting warm enough to thaw the snow and pond, then snowing again. But it’s a good thing, because that means Flamingo can work on his LTW without leaving the lot – easier to take care of the babies.
Now that he’s maxed the career and is no longer chained to the inventing bench, Fiyero indulges in some good old elder fun times.
Sam is pregnant again; at least it’s by the same guy this time?
Fiyero plays with the Masterful Harvester; it certainly helps speed up the scrap collection. I’ll have to try it out in the garden, once Spring comes.
Pink got a promotion; I swear she picks a different career every new save file.
Fiyero was awarded the key to the city; in the background you can see both Marius (army uniform) and Eponine (papergirl outfit) joined the crowd of well-wishers. Along with Silver Racket, because who else would be in a maid’s costume as an elder?
Ooh, he got this awesome moodlet; +50 for 4 entire days!
Marius and Fantine had a baby girl this time. I’ll have to send someone over to check out the kids once they’re no longer burritos.
Her wish for 5 grandchildren fulfilled, Yttrium has now wished for 10. Better get cracking, Marius and Eponine, because Cosette is done.
Unlike Pink, Heather is always in the Culinary career, and she got a promotion also.
It’s Flamingo’s birthday; he looks exactly the same. And yay, he did not have a Midlife Crisis!
I disguised the Store Dance Floor as a rug, and Cosette loves it. I love it, too, the animations are hilarious. This is the Mascot Dance.
Not a day after impregnanting Sam, Shark moves on to Bunny. …I think you were better off with Sam, Shark.
Yttrium also loves her grandchildren; at this point, the grandparents attend to the twins more than their parents do.
Not to say that their parents never socialise with the kids; they just don’t roll many wishes for the kids, unlike what I’ve been used to in other families. Flamingo and Cosette are all about one another and skilling, not so much the kids.
Fiyero has finally completed the Diabolical Detonator challenge.
Proof that he completed all of the inventing challenges; another first time for me, with these challenges 🙂
Despite the frowny face, Flamingo is actually quite happy atm.
Because he maxed the Fishing skill!
Cutie Seaweed spam:
Even when he’s throwing a tanti, he’s still so cute!
Maybelle, on the other hand, can’t find the xylophone. I’m pretty sure it’s not in the middle of the street, honey.
It was actually a glitch; I had to sell and rebuy the xylophone before she could find it. But now that she has, have some Maybelle spam:
Little Miss Popular keeps wanting to be best friends with everyone; when she’s not at someone’s house, she’s calling her friends on the phone. So much for the Loner trait.
I keep forgetting to sell Flamingo’s fish to help him with his career; I think this is L5?
Now that he’s done all I need him to do, Fiyero is playing with his inventions. Apparently a scuba tank and flippers are required safety gear to operate the drill.
Flamingo is making progress on his LTW; I’m keeping his Perfect fish in Maybelle’s inventory, so he doesn’t accidentally use them for bait. Thus far, he has 7.
…wow, apparently Marius is trying to help his mother with her wish for 10 grandchildren.
Fiyero plays with more of his own inventions. I’m hoping we can get him a new outfit or something.
Flamingo meets his great-grandmother-in-law (Jess). Everyone loves the sandpit, especially the ghosts.
And this is the favourite place for autonomous woohoo – I think this is Fiyero and Yttrium.
Heather found a new RI; from the name, I’m guessing he’s one of Amy Bull’s sons.
(I checked, he’s the half-brother of Shawn Bull, Amy’s son with Sinbad Rotter – the same man who fathered Heather’s daughter Geneva. Is that incestual? Not technically, I guess, but still kind of creepy)
Queen Penny of the Dining Table would like someone to clean up the dishes.
Synchronised parenting, FTW!
…guys, seriously, take it out of the nursery, at least.
Naw, I forgot that toddlers who know how to talk can communicate at the block table. Too cute.
Penny systematically socialises with everyone in the house; Loner trait, where?
And then Fiyero wished for this, so I allowed it.
I feel that Yttrium hasn’t been in this chapter much; she’s on free will, and this is pretty much all she does. She has maxed her relationship with Flamingo, so there’s that.
I have no doubt Shark had input into the name of his new daughter; Jamiee is a bit of a white trash name.
Since she had a sliver left in her promotion bar, and it was her day off, Cosette invited her boss out to socialise.
He accepted her request for a promotion; she’s now up to L8!
Just to show you how much Yttrium and Fiyero still love one another; they both roll the wish to woohoo one another almost daily.
Apparently Pink is working hard, she got another promotion already. Go Pink!
Proof that Penny does leave the lot other than just for school; she’s collecting butterflies for an opportunity.
These two, however, would never leave the bedroom if I didn’t force them.
Man, she looks so freaky with the glowing eyes.
Here she is in werewolf form; not too bad, considering.
She rolled up this immediately.
So we fulfilled it. It doesn’t really look like she’s eating it, more like glitching through it, but anyway.
Tonight, on the night of the full moon, it’s the twins’ birthday!
Seaweed rolled Lucky.
Maybelle glitched and dropped “Have Birthday” from her queue.
Fortunately, I now save sims at every birthday makeover (lesson learned after Jess Rourke, Nymeria and Sandor Maloney had the same issue), so even though the MC hard reset changed her features, I was able to grab toddler Maybelle and manually age her up. She rolled Neat.
This is her Neat makeover; she’s a very serious looking child, so Neat totally fits.
And this is madeover Seaweed; love the freckles! The twins already look very different – the eye shape and nose is different, even allowing for the skins.
His first action as a child? Ask his grandmother for a bedtime story. Though he did pick the correct boat bed, so there’s that.
Maybelle also chose to be social; talking to her mother. Man, this generation is so friendly!
So now that they’re no longer toddlers, Cosette is rolling wishes for the kids. Though we are not sending them to boarding school.
He wished for the stove, so Seaweed is designated the new family cook; we need a new one since we’ve depleted the leftovers Nessa made. And good quality cookies and brownies give the ‘good meal’ moodlet just as well as proper adult dishes do.
Right as Seaweed was putting away the leftovers, Yttrium flirted with Fiyero one last time, then heard the call.
Watching his grandmother die, Seaweed decided he wanted to save lives. (I said no)
Yttrium didn’t beg, she knew she’d had a damn great life. She simply shook hands with death and went to the great beyond.
Everyone present was distraught.
Cosette autonomously tried to console Penny, and got this reaction.
Fiyero went straight outside to play in the sandpit; I guess he’s seen how it draws the ghosts?
Cosette found consolation in the arms of her husband.
And, on that sad note, we’ll leave things for now. Thanks for reading!
