Last chapter, Cosette went travelling again, with her father (to China) and Penny (to France). Yttrium died and Penny aged to teen.
I added some Zales to Twinbrook, along with Ran Rimmor and a couple other bachelors from the Terry Bachelorette Challenge. We’ll have someone go over and meet them shortly.
And I also installed Showtime and Late Night; finally running all EPs bar Pets (it just slows my game down way too much).
With all this travelling, we needed more space, so I built the Rourkes a basement to house all the treasures Cosette has brought back.
Uhm, wut? Cosette has suddenly changed career to Video Game Developer? She’s not even a nerd! I manually changed it back to L8 of the Sports Career; that’s the promotion she received just before going to China.
She’s checking out her wrinkles; normal MLC activity, right?
Except that she’s also floating a foot above the floor. (oops, and I just realised I need to give her back her ST sneakers)
When she stepped away from the mirror she stopped floating, so I guess she’s okay. I’ll keep an eye on things…
Oh, and she maxed martial arts.
Maybelle plays tag with her grandfather when she woke up. It’s good that she’s bonding with him, his lifebar is also full.
Heather has taken up with one of the Terrey bachelors.
This is the house I set the Zales up in; Cosette is visiting.
LMAO, Hank is getting sauced already.
Cosette heartfarts Hank *facepalm*
Oops, poor Gwen. I guess Cosette kept her talking too long.
Also in the house are Irene and Helen. Why are you eating Irene’s horrifying waffles, Helen?
And Graham, as Cosette has just discovered.
She talks to Helen and Graham at the same time.
See those Z’s? That’s Flamingo, sleeping in the sarcophagus.
As he has wished, Fiyero starts teaching Penny to drive.
Cosette is still at the Zale house, befriending Helen now. They have clashing sleep habits.
Seaweed has wished to learn how to paint, so here he goes. In the background, Flamingo is getting to know his daughter.
Heather got a promotion!
It’s hard to tell who this is, but it’s Jess practising her ballet.
These two are still all about one another.
Cosette has now rolled this MLC wish; I was going to remodel anyway, this gives me an excuse!
We (finally) made an area for Yttrium’s grave, gave Penny’s room a science-teeny makeover, and added a second bathing area to the laundry.
Pink got a promotion. She’s officially a doctor now!
Someone is haunting the lamp – I think it’s Phoenix.
Penny wanted to analyse a rock, so okay.
Yay, Eponine had twins! Weird name for the first one, not sure if Myung is a boy or a girl. This brings the grandchildren total for Fiyero to 8.
LMAO, Fiyero is rummaging in the compost bin for scrap. Oh, insane sims.
Hey, cool painting, Seaweed. We’ll put it in Penny’s room, it’s her fave colour.
More letters and gifts from people who just can’t let go…
Flamingo sold some more fish and made it to level 6 (or maybe 7?). It’s very slow going, even with a maxed fishing skill.
Uh, Seaweed? Your mother is right there, she probably won’t take kindly to the prank…
Cosette went right back to her skilling after scolding her son, and soon maxed charisma. That’s three skills already!
Playing in the bathtub, so cute!
This is why Maybelle hasn’t been in this update much; she had an opportunity which gave her info about every gem and metal in the world; I took advantage and sent her out after the rare gems every day. She found a pink diamond plus a number of luminous gems, sunstones and moonstones.
Seaweed made all the beds after his bath, so Cosette (autonomously) let him off the hook.
Yay, Cosette’s MLC is finally over. 5 wishes isn’t too bad – she didn’t roll many, and only the one ‘flirt with someone else’ wish; obviously she loves Flamingo a lot.
Fiyero is mostly on free will these days; when he’s not staring at the various paintings and sculptures around the house, he’s skilling.
LOL, SP put my simself in the professional sports career with Cosette; I wanted her to make friends, so good that she gets a work bonus as well.
Helen has an RI – we may see some Zale babies soonish.
It’s the twins’ birthday – they’re both out collecting stuff, so alone in the dark. Maybelle rolled Artistic. Maybe she might start rolling some wishes. She is so boring, rolls almost no wishes, it’s really annoying.
Seaweed rolled Rebellious; this fits well with his generation’s goals, so good start.
Welcome to the Rourke home, simself! Cosette’s maxed charisma skill means they were friends by the time Cosette got done learning all her stats.
Maybelle is a mix of her parents; Flamingo’s eye colour, eye shape and nose, Cosette’s chin/jaw and mouth. It’s a bit of a strange combination, and makes her look very serious all the time.
Seaweed is a hottie! He’s pretty much the exact opposite of Maybelle; Cosette’s eye shape, colour and nose, Flamingo’s mouth and jaw.
LOL, there are so few electronic object in the house, I forget Fiyero is a technophobe. Then he does this…
Everyone loves sleeping in that thing.
I changed around the skilling room a bit, put a door on this side of the house, close to the entrance of the basement. If the family insist on sleeping down there, at least they won’t need to walk around the whole house to get there.
At Pink’s suggestion, we’re going to play with Penny the werewolf a bit more; have her turn some other sims into werewolves and expand the occult population a bit. I gave her the Leader of the Pack LTW, and we’ll see how far we can get into that $40k before she ages up.
Pink has an RI with hair almost the same colour as hers.
Seaweed is a typical teenage boy; he loves his sport.
I figured if Penny was already friends with people, it will make turning them easier – I was right. This is Rosalind McClain, Penny’s best friend beside Geneva Zalie.
Cosette wished to teach Seweed to drive; he’s a fast learner, and they finished before either of them got stressed.
Mikey hijacked Penny’s next outing; fairy Heather and Elijah Blue are also in attendance. At least this helps Penny raise her relationship with her father, I guess.
As always, Fiyero is very attentive to his grandchildren; he’s the only one who wished to teach Maybelle to drive, so here we are.
I don’t remember this girl’s name, but she’s Penny’s next highest relationship.
And thus, her new werewolf friend. But it didn’t go down well, and the new werewolf raced off right after she was turned. This ‘hunt with pack’ is harder than I thought.
It’s a full moon tonight, though – this guy was Penny’s first turn, he’s a Coddle descendant.
Lol, synchronised howling.
These two are still going strong, but no marriage or children in the works, unfortunately.
Penny was able to form a pack with the Coddle guy, and they made a little progress; this LTW is slow going.
This is the first wish Seaweed rolled on his first day of school; he might be gay, I’ll have to get someone to ask his preference.
Marius and Helen got promotions.
As did Cosette; she fulfilled her LTW! Just one more promotion to complete gen 4’s goal – then the family can have a TV!
Lol, she’s so cute when she’s all excited.
Marius has a new RI; he and Fantine have been fighting for a while.
Fiyero was stir crazy, so I sent him over to meet Eponine’s twins. They’re pretty cute! Myung is a girl, apparently, and she has Chance’s hair. Carlos has boring black hair.
Some tickles for Myung.
Eponine ignores her son, in favour of watching TV. Mother of the year candidate here.
Moar travelling! I’m pretty sure it’s glitching my game a bit, so going to do some more with Cosette and then have a fresh start when Seaweed takes over. This time he’s going with her, though, since I like taking two – one for quests and the other for collecting.
Wow, the Academy is busy today.
Seaweed is fishing; going to try to get some dragon fish for Flamingo to catch at home. They’re not worth as much as deathfish, but can catch them all day.
Since Cosette has finished most of the quests in China, she’s going for the martial arts challenges. Grand Master here we come.
I figured out a way to determine the family’s net worth; SP map tags give it. We get three more points 🙂
Cosette fights her first mummy. After heartfarting it, lol.
She pwned it, of course.
More fishing; he’s catching tancho koi now, to be bait for dragon fish. And…what is that in the background?
China apparently has Magicians… I love the combo of the Chinese hat and magician outfit.
Assassin bugs! Those things are hard to catch, Seaweed missed two before he got this one.
That bug quest for him up to Visa L1.
Whoa, cool! I haven’t seen Cosette do that before, go girl!
Winning this fight gets her up to rank 1. Long way to go…
And I finally got a picture of the pink swishy that Cosette makes when she spars.
This latest opponent is Sun Young Kim, gen 2 spouse in the Kook BISBI! Cosette autonomously took a photo with her, apparently she knows the significance of this particular person.
I got bored with having Cosette move around, so started just calling all the partners to base camp. This one is a curly-haired teenager, with that weird green-brown hair. I thought I had a mod to fix that…
Yay, Seaweed is finally up to catching dragon fish! Once he catches 10, we can go home and stock the pond.
We already have more than enough sparring and fishing pics, which is the rest of the China trip, so I’ll end the chapter here. Next up; hunting with werewolf Penny!
