Previously, the twins aged up and Seaweed went to China with his mother, where she sparred her way to Rank 2.
I forgot that, since Yttrium unlocked plumbing, we can have sprinklers in the garden now! Fiyero loves it.
I left Flamingo fishing for deathfish and got the others started on their days. When I came back, Mr Friendly was making friends with the ghosts.
Cosette’s photo with Sun Young Kim goes up on the wall in her bedroom.
The gnomes are forever gathering in and around the garden; thank goodness they’re live-draggable, so I can get them out of the way. Also lol at Flamingo autonomously fishing in his underwear.
Seaweed’s childhood baking is still feeding the entire family. When we get low enough he’ll start learning the actual cooking skill.
Autonomous hugs for dad. The Friendly trait is strong in Cosette.
And then Fiyero goes to smash up someone’s sand castle. I’m pretty sure that’s his own, anyway.
Tam managed to stop her performance slide; she’s back up to Yes Woman.
That blue hair looks familiar; this is Trent Rourke, Marius’ eldest. He came home with one of the kids, and Maybelle chose to help him with his homework.
I don’t remember Penny ever transforming because of anger…but good to know she won’t anymore.
Fiyero practises his ballet. The amateur moves always make me laugh.
Marius moved out of Fantine’s house, into his new girlfriend’s.
Progress on Penny’s LTW; as a couple of people mentioned, I’m considering having her turn Maybelle, that way she will always have someone to hunt with.
Uhm…Rhamnus? What are you doing with all these children (who are not yours) in the graveyard at 6am??
Cosette maxed her gardening skill. I’m thinking we’re not going to plant anything else; will harvest what’s currently growing, then use the yard space for something else. The first few generations were the important ones for gardening, nothing else will require it.
Seaweed stocked the pond with the fish he caught in China; there are three different koi, plus dragon fish. Unfortunately, he didn’t catch enough tancho koi (the bait for dragon fish) to stock the pond, so Flamingo might have trouble catching one. Now the Rourkes have a koi pond, like the Zales!
It doesn’t take long for Flamingo to catch a couple different koi, and complete the challenge of catching 20 different kinds of fish.
He has one more perfect fish to catch for his LTW. And if it’s up to him, it will be a Doitsu Koi.
But yay, he caught a dragon fish!
And then Cosette interrupted for some fun couple time. Cosingo spam:
I have no idea why they’re in their swimsuits, or why Flamingo is laughing after woohoo…
Eponine got a promotion.
The collection of all the bugs, butterflies and other insects. A lot of them are the rare and extraordinarily unusual ones – it’s the uncommon ones I’m having trouble finding. Penny’s werewolf skills are almost too high now, we keep getting rare duplicates.
Oh, there’s a prom soon, btw. Only Seaweed wished to attend, the girls couldn’t care less.
Oooh, we know what this means! Flamingo must have caught a perfect one!
And yep, that’s Flamingo’s LTW complete.
Seaweed chose to cook instead of eating the leftovers in the fridge. Oh well, he’s going to be the family cook anyway.
Oh no, Fiyero 😥
These shocked faces made me LOL. And cue synchronised mourning in 3, 2, 1…
He begged for more time, but Grim wasn’t having any of it. And really, it’s okay, he’s had a hugely successful life, seen 5 grandchildren grow up to teenagers.
Grim does not like Maybelle; he’s practically hissing at her.
But he loves Cosette.
Both Penny and Cosette rolled this wish while Grim was still reaping Fiyero. Not going to happen, but nice that you care so much.
And so our gen 3 heir is laid to rest in the family graveyard, just in time for Yttrium to come visit.
Elijah Blue takes up with Willow, Sam’s daughter.
Flamingo got a medal for his fishing exploits.
I finally remembered to have Cosette ask Seaweed his gender preference.
He’s bi. That will be interesting, I’ll have to think about how I’ll play this for the spouse poll. Maybe male and female options?
This wish makes me sad; I’ll have to try and fulfil it.
Fishing together should do the trick.
We also asked Maybelle about her gender preference.
She’s also bi! If I remember correctly, Penny is too, so the whole generation, that’s a first.
Speaking of Penny, Pink is at the house, being part of her pack. Though that just means she hangs around the house while Penny hunts. It counts, so I’m not complaining. And this means Cosette can make friends.
LOL, I’ve never seen someone fall on their butt trying to dunk!
She nailed the second one, though.
Heather’s daughter, Geneva, looks to be settling down. Damn, I had my eye on that guy for Penny.
And my simself has apparently joined the ranks of “simselves who want into the Rourke family”.
Werewolves eating on chairs and ghosts reading. Just a normal day in the Rourke household.
Maybelle is taking things really hard. She was very close to Fiyero.
And we’re off travelling again, Egypt this time. Cosette keeps getting opportunities to go to different countries.
Cosette goes off to buy up everything unique in Egypt. The general goods merchant thinks she’s awesome.
Flamingo goes adventuring.
Hey, it’s Tahiya! Her children with Ike Zale were overlooked for the Zalien. 😦
Fishing for crocs. Pretty scenery 🙂
And huge! That tiny pink speck near the door is Flamingo.
Flame fruit! This picture is so gorgeous.
Meanwhile, Cosette has been collecting gems and bugs for adventures and for the home collection. She’s up to level 2.
Look out, Flamingo, there’s a mummy!
It found him.
Pwned. But not cursed, luckily.
Cosette is snake charming, but she can’t find the snake.
LMAO, her face.
The quests of these two keep overlapping; Cosette just received a book to read, off the guy Flamingo needs to talk to for his quest.
And so, as they always do, they wished to interact. Watching the stars gives a nice cute moodlet.
Cosette chose to skinny dip in this pool. Right beside a wall of fire. Oh, sims.
Flamingo is there too; tombs go faster when there are two to help.
Though sometimes, he’s the one who needs help. Another first, I haven’t had any sims cursed by a mummy before.
Cosette looks at the crispy, cursed body of her husband.
And rolls this wish. She really has it bad.
Flamingo’s curse is lifted, yay!
He finally caught a mummy fish, so has caught all the Egyptian ones now.
Man, EA did a great job with the scenery in these vacation worlds. Gorgeous!
Back home, Willow is getting married!
And her brother Drew goes steady with one of Penny’s werewolf pack.
Flamingo finally got a promotion to L8. Only another 30k to L9 *sigh*
Pink also got a promotion.
And Geneva got married! Maybe Heather will have some grandbabies running around soon.
These two just to show the awesome treasures Cosette collects on her hunts. Tiberium and Rainbow bugs!
Hmm, all these uncontrollable werewolves take a toll on the furniture. But it seems someone has placed a trap on the sofa.
Actually, the whole house is filled with pranks. This is what happens when you have three teenagers in the house, I guess. The sink next to Cosette’s room and the chair in the twins’ room also have flashing lights.
We’re making progress on Penny’s LTW. Hunting for insects helps, since they’re worth more than uncut gems, even the really valuable ones.
Each of these bugs is extraordinarily unusual, and worth over $1k.
LMAO, Penny rummages in the trash while her parents make out. Just another day in the Rourke household.
She then gets asked on a date; sure! The Greenwood family is pretty cute, if I remember correctly.
Seaweed must know he’s the new heir; he’s taken up dancing. Maybelle continues to sleep in the sarcophagi.
Though he’s a YA, Toby is pretty cute.
And they’re both geniuses, win.
But Penny doesn’t find him attractive, aw 😦
Like mother, like son. The ghosts in this house are boring.
Apparently Cosette likes taking photos; one with your dead relative sounds reasonable.
And then Jess scared her. Random.
Pink got an RI!
LMAO, Flamingo ran out the door when he woke up.
To go play in the sprinkler. Haha, sims.
Cosette reached L8 of the Jock social group! She rolled Ambitious as her extra trait.
It’s Penny’s birthday today, so we’re throwing a party. I invited all the decent-looking teens in town, so hopefully the twins can find prom dates.
Maybelle likes this girl, Abbey Motley (whose face I neglected to photograph).
And Seaweed went for Antonia Greenwood. He can have a teen fling before he settles down 😉
But now it’s cake time!
I think this is the most people who have cheered on a Rourke family member.
Someone brought freezer bunnies!
Penny rolled Great Kisser as her final trait. So she’s a genius loner who has no sense of humour, but loves to kiss out in the sun.
And she’s officially a face clone of Cosette. Hair and eye colour are different, and she has Mikey’s pointy ears. She’ll be sticking around until she completes her LTW, just because I love her 😉
That’s all for now; please let me know what you think about Seaweed’s spouse options, should he have male, female or both options?
