The votes have been counted, and Riff Raff is the winner!
Despite strong competition from Lev Langurd, his wife will be Hannah Bathory.
But since this challenge is about completing careers, we will remain in gen 6 until Story tops the Business career and completes the requirements for Gen 6.
Magenta is still really upset at Seaweed’s death. Rocky (autonomously) tried to console her, and she made this face.
The ghosts are having a grand old time, however. Phoenix and Fiyero play basketball.
While Cosette jumps on the trampoline. Though this photo is at about 10am, so she really should be gone by now.
I missed the shot, but Frank planted one last whoopee cushion before age up.
Mood swing plus grief, means Magenta is out to destroy all the snowmen the ghosts have built.
Birthday time! No party, because we just had a party last chapter.
The whole household is there to celebrate, however.
Riff Raff sparkles first. His final trait is Rebellious, since apparently I forgot to give that earlier. His LTW is Master Mixologist. I’ve not played much with this skill, and it’s my goal to max every skill at least once in this challenge, so why not now?
Frank next; his traits weren’t amended until the CAS makeover, due to my previously-mentioned stuff-up with Schmoozer. He now has Charismatic in place of Schmoozer, which allows Rebellious to be added, as per the rules. His LTW is Zombie Master (one of the witch-only ones, Story’s was the other).
YA Riff Raff! When I checked his genetics again, he is almost a clone of Velma (other than the ears). Still, he has the best traits, and I’m glad he’s heir.
YA Frank; he’s a good mix of genetics, with Story’s nose and overall headshape, and Velma’s eyes and mouth.
Here he is after makeover, being stupid. Yes, he just put that piece of cake on the counter, then sat in a different chair. Idiot sims…
Better pic of Riff Raff’s everyday clothes; he has a lot of ST and UL stuff, since they fit his personality the best.
Velma makes awesome faces.
Since he will be marrying Hannah Bathory, Riff Raff needs to break up with his high school love, Jill Slayer-Bloom.
She is heartbroken.
And then they discover they’re both hot-headed.
Rocky is now at the point of martial arts when he can spin the training dummy around.
Still doesn’t stop him from being poked in the eye, occasionally.
(and no, I have no idea why he has glasses in his MA outfit; I would change them, but he gets a new outfit with every level, so there’s no point)
Billy and Sabrina continue the on-again off-again thing.
And apparently Jill is bi? Barbara is one of Roxie’s children, she mostly takes after her father (Wogan Hemlock).
Our resident Eccentric teen is on hand to fix the broken shower. I will need to have someone else skill up handiness for when she moves out… (we upgrade to Self-Cleaning in the Rourke house, since broken appliances are handy for skilling, and cleaning is more tedious).
Kelly is pregnant! To Sabrina’s grandson…yes, Sabrina who is current dating Kelly’s triplet brother. Dang vampires and their long lifespans. I will have to get a mod to shorten those, when we get vamps and fairies into the family.
Magenta made a miner! She had a wish locked in for it, so we banked a couple thousand LTH points. But we still have Fiyero’s master miner in the backyard, so Magenta’s will be sold.
This is what these two do on free will all the time.
And now that the kids are at school, it’s apparently skinny-dipping time. In the snow. As you do. Velma did have it in her queue to join her, but then dropped it in favour of freaking out at Story being naked. Because she’s never seen that before. Lol, sims.
The big boys are off to the library for some skilling. We will be moving towns when Story tops her career (which should hopefully be in a few days), so I’ll keep Frank in the house until then. Just makes it easier to manage the move. And since we will also have a new house, Riff Raff won’t be getting a bar just yet – for now, he’ll stick to books to learn mixology.
After school, it’s time for the festival!
Snow Angels. Velma is doing it wrong.
Everyone is finally here, so it’s time for a photo!
The last greeting card in Bridgeport. I kind of wish the backgrounds were different, so we could see that, but oh well.
Rocky was on a mood swing, and wished to prank the school, so I let him have at it.
Whoops, maybe he shouldn’t have done it at 4pm on a school day?
When he exited the school, I saw this genie boy with him. I only know of one genie in town…
Yep, he’s Rad’s grand
sondaughter! And it looks like he has her hair colour, too!
Poor Rocky was then arrested by the cops for pranking.
Meanwhile, at the festival (across the street from the school, lol) the other kids of gen 7 try their hand at ice skating.
While Velma and Story snowboard.
Story is just average.
Velma is amazing.
She kept rolling wishes to do more and more tricks, and didn’t even have to do a normal run in between!
Eskarina Winters was there, and she spun with Magenta. If things had turned out differently, Magenta might have been Eskarina’s daughter.
Oh, and I need to upgrade the net worth to $4.8m!
Teenagers on the phones again. Trying to get someone to come over, so we can get these two spares some RIs.
We’ve been in this house two full generations, and this is the first time anyone has used the fireplace. And Velma is using it to warm her chilly butt, lol.
I figured we could work on Frank’s LTW a bit. He used one of Story’s Zombie Elixirs to turn this guy, but the game didn’t register it. I guess you have to make the elixirs yourself?
Love the message that he got, though.
Story maxed athletic! These two are powering through their skills.
Billy and Sabrina are off again. (I have to give him hair one of these days…)
No more babies, Velma! You have a son old enough to have a baby.
It’s okay to chat up your brother’s ex-girlfriend, right?
I wasn’t thinking of putting these two together, but Jill talked of attraction.
Then they heartfarted.
And before I could think straight, this was happening. Oh well, Riff Raff should be fine with it – he hasn’t rolled a single wish for Jill since breaking things off.
He’s too busy painting a bunch of different mermaid paintings.
And this last one was a masterpiece!
Super speedy romance spam go:
Yeah, Frank kept rolling wish after wish to do romantic things with Jill, so I just let them go. She will make pretty babies for him.
Meanwhile, Velma has been churning out Dragon Doughertys like crazy, to top her career. And she finally made it!
It wouldn’t have taken so much time if she’d discovered the DD topiary earlier; Carl says this is the best for making lots of money sculpting, especially since sims get better at a particular sculpture the more they sculpt it – kind of like cooking.
That didn’t take long, you two!
Rocky invited Helen Mist (daughter of Ivory) out on a date, but she showed up then left straight away.
She did come over to the house that same night, and stayed long enough for Rocky to ask her to prom.
LOL! That’s a yes, but with a poo threat.
Better shot of Helen’s face; even with the Full Moon lighting, she’s quite pretty. The big nose suits her.
She was invited inside, where Rocky proceeded to seal the deal.
And then they sing a duet.
I love these animations; Rocky is so into it – he has rolled up the Singing career LTW a couple of times, but I’m choosing LTW at age up.
Moar ghosties; Flamingo is playing basketball while Yttrium builds an igloo.
Skinny dipping with you son, Story? Sure, that’s not at all creepy.
And that’s it for now! Next time, there will be one last party in Bridgeport before Story finally tops the Business career.
