Previously, the final child of gen 7 was born; Rocky. And Velma joined Story in middle age.
A photo to show I finally fixed the family tree – had to resurrect all the ghosts (thus why they’re all living in this picture), use MC to reconnect the family tree, then kill them off again. Poor Seaweed then experienced the grief of losing his grandparents and mother all over again – but that’s why we have moodlet managers in Sims 🙂
Brillo got promoted to L9 – only one more level for her LTW. She’s at the end of her lifebar though, so it will be a close call.
Flynn got herself a vampire boyfriend!
And two seconds later, fell pregnant to said vampire boyfriend.
Before he was killed off again, Fiyero escaped the house and went off to the library. Story found him (re-ghostified once more), and they chatted about the temperature.
The reason Story is at the library is to play with magic again; she fire-blasted the door, then ice-blasted it back down.
One pestilence curse later…
Finally! We can get cracking on her actual LTW.
Back at home, Riff Raff invited a friend over! This is Gema Maloney-Fresco (No relation to my WYDC family). She’s really cute!
They get along nicely.
But I’m lazy these days, so Riff Raff breaks out the friendship elixir.
Velma has been studying hard, and finally maxed Inventing.
And therefore completed her LTW, woot!
Frank also has a friend over; this is Cheri Serzo (Sabrina’s granddaughter) – she was a child when he called, but aged up on the way over. She has an interesting nose, but I like her.
Magenta is a witch!
Such a cute interaction.
It’s Rocky’s birthday!
He’s soooo cute! Freckly skin, Yttrium’s blue hair, Story’s pink eyes.
With another toddler to be trained, Velma finished off teaching Magenta to talk.
Toddler cutie spam:
Friendly and Rebellious seem to = bipolar in this one.
They look so much alike…but I think it’s actually just the hair and skin, the mouth and eyes are different.
Velma still has a favourite child; she continually rolls wishes for Frank (locked in are “see Frank grow up well” as well as “see Frank be a genius”) and rarely for the others.
Roxie and Billy have new RIs.
While Flynn continues the trend of Rourke spares being unable to keep a partner.
Billy isn’t fussed, and continues to collect RIs across the city.
Aw, it would be a nice Sunday dinner…except for the crying baby in the house.
Riff Raff saves the day!
Since she rolled a wish to invent something, Velma is finally touching the inventing table. Meanwhile, Seaweed is working on his Science skill.
…wow, turning a seed into edible food. Cool.
Frank got on the honor roll!
And Brillo maxed gardening. These guys are being so productive this chapter.
To balance out all the productivity, we need some peekaboo cuteness!
It got Frank and Magenta to friends so quickly, tis awesome.
However, it doesn’t raise their social bar much (WTF, EA?), so to the dollhouse!
Meanwhile, Riff Raff had his scouts ceremony, and looks so adorable in his uniform!
Billy and Roxie seem to have chosen partners.
Kelly has a romance, finally (never mind it’s the baby daddy of Roxie’s son).
More productivity! Story is working her way up the business career ladder. And Seaweed maxed the Science skill.
Not as much progress is made with the toddler training. Rocky is learning really slowly.
Well, that didn’t last long.
We abandoned the toddler skilling for the library, so the kids can teach themselves. Brillo found a tabcast – but hey, at least she’s awake while supervising the toddlers.
Velma is now making metal sculptures – I love this one!
And with the sale of the metal man, she got a promotion!
It’s a triple birthday party!
Aw, Brillo! (poor Magenta was put down so Brillo could die…talk about destroying a childhood)
Almost her entire family was in attendance, even the children of spares.
This is Nicholas Rourke, Roxie’s son with William Fangmann. He seems to be all Rourke, apart from the vampire pallor.
We had to get the cakes going, before everyone aged up of their own accord. First, the ‘twins’.
Oh God, could this party have any more disasters?
Jenn is on hand to save the day! And Riff Raff managed to blow out his candles and age up in the middle of the fire *facepalm* Oh, sims.
He had a B in school, so Ambitious was locked in.
Also, Magenta is crying.
Velma managed to pick her up, but kept dropping the ‘feed Magenta’ action to freak out over the fire.
Overhead view of the chaos; so many people! Mostly family (Velma’s siblings) and townie children for gen 6 to befriend.
And Grim said this – lmao, not seen this before. He did reap Brillo correctly, though.
Gee, thanks insurance. That doesn’t even cover the cost of 1 counter. Good thing the Rourkes have money to burn (pun intended ;)).
New counters and a new cake enables Frank to grow up!
And it was then that I realised I made a boo boo – Schmoozer conflicts with Rebellious, so I couldn’t give him the required trait as per the rules. For now, I rolled Vegetarian for him – when he ages up to YA, I’ll switch out Schmoozer for something else (probably Charismatic), so Rebellious can be applied.
Today is also Magenta’s birthday.
Sparkle dance! She was given Rebellious as per the rules.
Riff Raff is hawt! He gets scruff and an earring, as befits our Brooding, Hot-Headed teenager.
Frank is also pretty handsome, though in a more refined way. His nose is now very obviously Story’s – yay for genetic diversity!
Magenta is a cutie; hot pink goes really nicely with her green skin.
Oh, and Story rolled up this wish after the epic birthday fire. Sorry, Story, no smoke detectors until gen 8 completes their career!
That will do for now; next chapter, Rocky’s birthday!
