6.14 – Paintings and Phone Calls
Previously, everyone had fun! The family went to the fall festival and had a Feast Party, and generally had a good time. Nothing huge happened…probably why this generation is the longest yet.
This may well be the last post of Velma’s generation. OMG finally, it seems like we’ve been on this gen forever. If Rocky wins the poll, Velma might have one more chapter, but if either of the twins do, that’s it.
We begin with Magenta’s teen birthday! In front of the portrait her mother painted.
She rolled Childish, so I gave her pigtails and a fun printed jumper.
Damn, she’s so gorgeous! Velma’s face with Story’s eyes, and the gold colour that has been passed down from Yttrium (gen 3 spouse).
Velma got a promotion; this is L9.
Speaking of Yttrium, she’s out in the day time, and rocking the trampoline moves.
Flower trail! My favourite part of plantsims 🙂
Riff Raff painted a portrait of Plantsim Seaweed, just coz I love him (both of them).
Eccentric Childish Magenta found the toybox (in her swimwear, for some reason).
But Velma interrupts to ask a very important question.
Weird angle, but Velma is teaching Magenta to drive in the yellow convertible.
Since he’s at the end of his life bar (and he has nothing better to do), Seaweed is filling the fridge with Perfect leftovers.
LMAO, Story played a prank at work, and Alyssa was the poor sod who got pranked.
Riff Raff invited Jill out on a date. They were supposed to go to a club, but ended up in the lobby.
Wow, your mom crashing your date, that’s gotta suck.
Good thing she got distracted with the other people in the lobby.
And the paparazzi captures it all.
While Story ticks another one off the list for her LTW.
The teens got some love letters! Looks like Frank is a hit with the boys, while Riff Raff has another female admirer.
Rad is getting married! Yay, simself wedding!
Aw, I’d almost forgotten Riff Raff had the Brooding trait.
Phoenix, please don’t eat our food; you don’t need to eat anymore!
Story maxed alchemy! I haven’t been taking too many pictures, because it’s not interesting like sculptures or painting.
We have an ice Seaweed, woot! Will still melt, unfortunately.
Another promotion for Story; we’re going to have computers before long!
I don’t document them all, but the house is always full of pranks. Three rebellious teenagers and a rebellious child will do that.
Naw, Charlotte finally found love.
Stelma (Story + Velma’s ship name, I have decided) went on a date to a club. Enjoy the dance spam.
Just to show off Magenta’s cute PJs.
ZOMG, she’s on fire! Don’t worry, she made it upstairs and to the shower. And after this, I put a shower in the basement.
Kelly had a boy! Of the 11 grandchildren, I think there are only 2 or 3 girls.
Yay, now we can have some non-melting ice sculptures!
Man, this is possibly the most adorable painting ever. Baby mermaid FTW!
I really love Magenta’s outfits, so I’m showing them all off; this is outerwear. She’s talking up some guy from school, so he might come over and we can see if he’s a spouse option for her.
Poor Flynn is yet another victim of Story’s LTW.
The last one! Story completed her LTW, finally!
Frank is also making progress, he’s maxed logic!
Alone in the hallway, a true youngest child, Rocky ages up to teen.
He rolled Supernatural Fan. So, he will become a supernatural at some point, when depends on if he’s heir or spare.
I didn’t like that hair on him; this one suits his Diva personality a lot better. He has most of Velma’s features, with Story’s eyes and mouth.
Riff Raff has painted another awesome painting, a second Ariel one.
Aw, Charlotte is dying soon 😦 At least she got married before she died.
Frank learned all the potions! The first one to stick with the potion table since Fiyero.
He then ran to the bathroom…only Story was in there doing laundry and wouldn’t leave.
So the poor thing peed himself.
I decided Rocky’s skill will be martial arts. Only Cosette has played with this skill, so it’s not overdone for me.
These are all the inventions Magenta has made thus far; she’s really flying through them. Eccentric helps a ton with Inventing.
Lil Miss Childish is so interesting; she’s always on the play equipment when I leave her alone.
While Story and Riff Raff gossip…about Magenta?
Velma has painted 6 brilliant paintings.
This is the latest, it’s adorable.
These are some of the others she’s done; loving seeing all of these different paintings. I think being Insane helps make them more interesting.
Since his mothers have so many things to do, granddad Seaweed teaches Rocky to drive.
Jeanne Xu is back! (in the background Magenta is still trying to befriend someone well enough that they will come over)
She refuses to flirt with Frank 😦
They’re attracted to one another.
She agrees to be his best friend forever.
Nor kiss him again. WTF, Jeanne? We’ll leave things for now, so frustrating!
Meanwhile, Seaweed fails at riding an elevator.
He’s visiting Roxie’s family to make friends with his grandchildren. Damn, Barbara has a scary face.
They chatted for a bit, then went outside to make a snowman together.
Epic baby sea creatures painting! Possibly my favourite of all those Riff Raff and Velma have painted.
And it’s this one that gives him the Brushmaster achievement! He’s painted 30 paintings…and I’m 99% sure he’s also maxed the skill, I just failed to take a screenshot.
Teens on the phone, all the time. Sounds pretty normal. That cute girl Rocky’s talking to is Ivory Mist’s daughter – she’s so gorgeous!
Seaweed is on a date! With an elderfied Lola Belle, I believe. She asked him, and I figured why not?
I went to the house to check on the others…then the camera was forced back to Seaweed. Oh no!
He begged, even though he’s already had a double elder life due to a death flower. Man does not know when enough is enough.
And so we say goodbye to gen 5. 😦
Everyone is upset, though they didn’t “witness death” like the moodlet says. Also I have NFI why Magenta is singed, must have been from the inventing table.
Velma tries to cheer her up, though she knows it probably won’t help much.
And now, with a few days until the twins’ YA birthday, it’s time for an heir poll! As much as I love Magenta, we are only polling the boys. And I’ll also poll the spouse options now; all options will be girls, even if Frank is heir.

I’m so sad to see Seaweed go 😦 he was such a good heir! Rest in Peace Seaweed! But I am excited for the heir poll! Though I’m not quite sure who I’m voting for just yet…
I know, he was a great heir. But he has accomplished pretty much everything I could do with him, so I’m not too sad he’s gone. Gives us more room for nooboos!

Someone’s obsessed with Mermaids…
Yeah, both Riff Raff and Velma paint a lot of Mermaids. Maybe it’s related to the Rebellious/Brooding trait – they share both of those.
I love Riff Raff. I’ve only just noticed how similar he and Rocky look.
Do all of those paintings come with the game or do you have a mod to get the variety? Only mine never seem to paint the ones yours do.
Riff Raff has taken an early lead, and I’m fine with him being heir, he’s a lot of fun to play!
Interesting that you think he and Rocky look alike, since they actually only have overall head and jaw shape the same. Maybe it’s the freckly skin, it doesn’t show differences as much as some other skins. And you reminded me that I should share the genetic differences in the poll, will go edit now!
Yes, I use Plum’s painting replacement mod – link is in the Resources page. It’s huge, but so worth it.
