Last time, Riff Raff and Frank aged up to YA, and Frank honed in on his twin’s ex-girlfriend.
Hanging around outside City Hall? Must be graduation time! It’s also Snow Day and prom for the teens tonight; busy day for the Rourkes!
See that guy that just threw a water balloon? That’s the guy Magenta is sweet on, Teddy Xu. We’ll try to get them hooked up later.
Aw, most likely to have a big family; he will if Frank has anything to say about it.
Riff Raff will definitely complete his LTW; though that is a kind of boring one for someone with his awesome personality.
Obligatory diploma toss for our heir.
Magenta went to talk to Teddy…then ate snowflakes instead. Childish sims…
He’s not great looking, and already has a girlfriend, so we’ll pass.
Since it’s Snowflake Day, I decided we should throw a party, and make it a destination party, for once. In hindsight, picking a park in the middle of winter wasn’t the best idea, but hey.
Velma tries to cook some hotdogs for the party guests, but she doesn’t have any cooking skill, so burns them. And the second batch too. Guess this will be a no food party.
Riff Raff gets his DJ on.
Soon enough, we have dancers and people watching the DJ.
I took pity on Billy and gave him back his hair (that’s him with the red coat right at the front).
Dancing and DJ-ing was pretty much the extent of the party. The guests liked it, though, and Velma got an “amazing party” moodlet.
Meanwhile, the teens were at prom! Have some prom spam:
As expected, Rocky’s popups were all about Helen, while Magenta had a lame prom. She did get prom queen, though I missed the popup.
Riff Raff continues to paint adorable paintings.
Kelly had twins!
He’s this close…
Painting is maxed!
A second later, Frank maxes his second skill in Photography. I really wish we could see the sims with the camera, at least some of the time, so you could see that he was working on it.
Velma and Story play basketball:
Velma dunked successfully.
Story does an epic leap…
But falls on her butt and misses the basket.
While I’ve been twiddling my thumbs waiting for the weekend to be over and Story to go back to work, I realised that Riff Raff does have something to do; he needs to max his rebel skill, so he can do the Art Appraiser career! So I bought him a street art kit.
Now he’s tagging every spare inch of the house!
Protip: if you have the MoveObjectsOn cheat activated, the sims will be able to tag everywhere, even if the floor/wall is covered.
Before long he’s at L3!
We interrupt Riff Raff’s rebellious activities for Story’s birthday!
She’s a pretty spiffy looking elder.
Magenta’s updated group of inventions! I think she’s done all the toys now, and most of the widgets.
Rocky’s prom photo and crown (stupid winter proms, they’re in their outerwear); Magenta’s got lost in her inventory somewhere.
Because I’ve never done it, and because he needs to do things to raise his rebel influence, Riff Raff holds a hunger strike!
At first there was only one guy watching, so I sent Frank and Story (who didn’t have anything better to do) down to help out.
But he soon drew a decent crowd. Including Frank’s ex-RI, Jeanne Xu, who is not happy to see Frank again.
Yes, they’re protesting rings… I just picked a random topic from the list.
And Mars Champion, the Rourke family paparazzi stalker, dies in the middle of the protest.
But the hunger strike continues!
Until someone goes into labour.
(Rocky has been zeneporting with his new meditation skill, thus the PJs in the snow)
Story took the woman off to the hospital, and Riff Raff continued his protest. And it was now warm enough that the snow began to melt!
Yes, it completely melted in the course of a single afternoon.
The protest was successful! And they celebrated with balloons.
I realised that it would be handy to have someone else in the family also with rebel influence, so that talking to one another could increase it. So Frank is on street art duty also.
Still on a mission to increase his influence, Riff Raff goes dumpster diving behind the grocery store.
And Lola Belle dies right in front, canceling his action. I’m starting to think the townies have it in for Riff Raff…
Rocky is up to breaking wooden boards! I think this is about L6 or 7.
These two continue to be adorably in love.
OMG, I didn’t even know Jill was pregnant! Well done, Frank, mixed twins.
In the background of the above picture (Story and Velma hugging), you can see Magenta going into the time machine; she rolled up the wish to travel to the past, so here we go.
Velma finally maxed charisma.
It is finally Monday, and we only have to wait until the end of Story’s shift for her to top the career.
In the meantime, Frank torments poor Sean outside the diner.
And Magenta fails pretty hard on the water slide. That’s an impressive slide off the slide…
Yay, done! Now the new house can have computers and video games 😀
Next post will be the first of Riff Raff’s reign, and the family is moving to Starlight Shores!
