162 Love and death

Gabby is walking the dog. Miles seems to follow her for some reason.

No, he´s going ahead.

Which causes Gabby to take her car.

While the poor doggy has to walk home alone. Well done.

Eric drew this. It´s pretty.

It´s his birthday and we´re having a party. Henry began rolling wishes for some”Erica”, so who´s Erica?

This is Erica Brock- after I mixed up her face one a bit. Didn´t change her skin and hair tone.

It´s  kind of a whirlwind romance.

 

They´re cute together.

And now she belongs to us!

Milli does some birthday serenading (ok, not really).

He gains some weight and looses some hair – ok, we can fix that. He rolls flirty.

Much better.

Conall uses the opportunity to tell Erica, that he really wants some grandchildren. Too soon, Conall, really.

I love Celia in this dress.

Conall tends to eat raw fish from his inventory, when he´s hungry, instead of cooking something.

Conall: IT´S SO TASTY!

You´re kind of worrying me a bit.

Eric wants to become a star news anchor, but he´s still artistic.

Aww, stop it guys!

Andromeda in her work outfit. Seems not quite appropriate for the weather.

Luke also in his work outfit. He´s working on his logic.

Henry just has to make some potions now and then, so he can laze around in the hot-tub with Erica.

You got yourself a pretty one, Henry.

Btw, she´s a slob, has a good sense of humour, is family-oriented, a natural cook and charismatic.

Jan after another night shift as a ghosthunter. I wanted him to top the career, but there isn´t enough time.

So he retires.

Hurray!

Ghost (is that Sebastian?): Soon you will be one of us!

Jan: Not yet. Now get the hell out of my husband! I still have my banshee banisher, you know?

Jan: Much better!

It´s snowflake day. Moritz is an elder now.

Conall, you´re about to kiss your husband, no thinking of your puppy love, ok?

Conall: OK.

 

So Dany has the hots for Jan now?

And Jan for Dany. Ok.

Opening the presents.

ABSOLUTLY NOT, DANY!

Well, it seems love is in the air.

 

 

Oh, look, that´s Dany´s husband, Marco.

Another face one.

Much better.

 

No one seemed to be interested in the presents anymore, so Eric opened the rest. He managed to get about five easels.

Erica stayed the night.

They´re still at it!

Eric is flirty now, so he flirts! Celia doesn´t like it.

Eric: Aw, come on, don´t be like that!

Celia: Ew.

Celia: Let me describe how much I don´t have the hots for you.

Eric: You´re a cold-hearted person.

Celia: EXACTLY!

And Jan´s time is up.

 

 

That looks uncomfortable.

Jan: No worries, I´m already dead.

Grim: THEY SEEM TO REALLY CARE ABOUT YOU. AWFUL RUCKUS.

Jan: Well, what can I say…

 

 

Conall was stuck and came to late.

He seems to be really angry.

And doesn´t sleep in their bed anymore. My poor Conall!

Goodbye Jan! You are an awesome sim!

161 Preparing the dystopian future

The Earthsong-Dust family is an artistic one.

Celia performs for tips, while Miles builds an igloo.

It´s a good one.

Gabby: Either get inside, or go home, you´re burning up!

Miles: Well, so are you!

They both went home after that, which is good.

Celia and Rowan´s son, Olaf Sato-Orange seem to be pretty interested in each other.

Even though Celia made a great first impression.

Celia: Blub.

They really hit it off, but manage to drive their relationship into the red, while I´m not looking. Olaf is evil and the emperor of that. He can be mean.

I was distracted by this hole in the fabric of the universe.

Perhaps a lot not properly attached to the road.

The weather is really nice.

Celia has a show. Rowan seems to be having a conspirative meeting behind the stage setting. But I think, it´s all a misunderstanding.

Rowan: Just because I´m a fairy, doesn´t mean I´m part of Marina´s drug cartel!

Doesn´t help, that the mob boss is his son.

Rowan: WE ARE ESTRANGED!

Luna and Moritz come to the show. I moved them out, so Luke and Franklin can join the family. Moritz is upset about something. Andromeda tries to help.

And here we have Olaf kissing his wife. Good thing, that Celia is already taken.

Learning stuff.

On the way to learn stuff.

In the meantime, Henry summons Emit Relevart to change the future to the dystopian version.

First he has to attract some asteroids.

Then he has to convince people to litter. I like the concept.

Random winter night picture of Hidden Springs from high above.

More convincing. Don´t know, why he does it in his sleepwear.

He´s also really hungry, so we go home.

Next day the last one.

And now we can visit the dystopian future anytime we want. Gotta wait a bit, though.

160 Ghost gnome

It´s spooky day and we have a little party. Nothing much happens.

Marina looks lovely as a mermaid, but I´m not sure about the boots.

Marina: At least my feet are warm.

Because my game is a bit confused since I disabled full moon (because it can bork werewolves), it is also prom for the boys. None of them got a romantic interest, which is good.

Some random pictures, because pretty.

 

 

 

 

It´s also Henry´s birthday.

He rolls loser. So he´s a neurotic, heavy sleeping, ambitous, cowardly loser. Poor guy. His lifetime wish is alchemy artisan, he has to reach level 10 in alchemy and use 50 potions.

Looking good.

It´s graduation day. Celia still gets the moodlet from sleeping with a teddy bear, despite being not childish. Probably glitched, but it´s kinda cute.

 

More pretty pictures.

 

Someone found a ghost gnome in the claw machine. So now there are ghosts from all over the town visiting.

 

It´s pretty hard on Henry.

Henry: This is really embarassing! I can´t keep fainting like that!

Well, you are a coward…

Henry: True. Ooooh, what if there are more of them?

There are.

Henry: I just pretend, nothing happened.

Randolph stays for a while.

Andromeda invited Franklin to ask him to be her boyfriend.

Uhm, Conall, do you mind?…

Conall: Aww, but they are so cute.

Conall: It´s like a sitcom.

(He kept staring at them and nodding approvingly the whole time. It was hilarious.)

They celebrate in the tree house.

 

159 Defiling beds

Why are random relatives smooching in my house? Must be a party!

Still into each other. That makes me happy.

Gabby: Now let´s defile their bed!

Miles: Yeah!

Um…

We invited Luke, so Celia can make their relationship official.

First kiss…

 

… and asking to go steady.

It´s a good thing, that sims are all about gender equality.

Celia: No problem at all.

Luke seems to be really happy.

Let´s defile some more beds.

Afterwards Celia has to rush off to a show I forgot about.

She´s getting better.

The real reason for the party is Jan´s birthday.

 

Jan: Eh, not bad.

I will miss that glorious hair.

The next day Storm dies.

 

She´s not happy about it.

But the Grim Reaper doesn´t make exceptions, as usual.

Henry remembers, that he´s a  coward.

Life goes on. Celia performs for tips.

I really like this costume.

Old age is no reason to stop having fun.

Conall: You still rock the eyeliner, you know that?

Jan: He, thank you!

Conall will outlive Jan, but they still have some time.

Next birthday. Eric turns into a teenager.

He rolls dog person. I give him an appropriate shirt.

There´s a lively discussion while eating the cake, but I have no clue, what they are talking about.

The llama mascot shows up, but he kind of forgot his costume.

Goodbye Storm. I had a lot of fun with you!

158 Invisible performer

Shaoran likes to meditate even in death.

Speaking of death, I added Storm back to the family, because she will die soon. She seems to be having fun, though.

Storm: No time like the present.

Celia starts her career and performs for tips.

 

There´s also graduation.

 

Jan and Conall have some fun in the hot tub.

 

What were you doing while I wasn´t looking?

Conall: Totally none of your business.

Jan: Also, that would be telling.

Storm doesn´t seem to be very fragile.

Conall and Jan are stir crazy, so they go on a date to watch some invisible performer.

Jan: It´s so good!

Conall: Really awesome!

Guys, there´s no one there. At least, no one that I can see.

Jan: She´s kind of right.

Conall: Let´s make our own entertainment.

 

Jan: Nice transformation.

Conall: Thanks.

They spent the rest of the show smooching.

 

Back at home, Conall reads Eric a night time story.

It even works.

The next day, Conall is human again and plays with the chicks.

Afterwards, he helps Jan to fulfil his LTW.

Jan: Last night was wild. Let´s do that again.

Conall: Alright.

157 Birthdays and fairies

I took the board-breaking thingy away, because everthing Conall does in his freetime is breaking space rocks, and there are gems everywhere. Now he spends all of his time with the training dummy. Sigh.

Luna prefers videogames. Moritz likes to watch her play.

Jan doesn´t really know, what he likes to do.

Jan: Huh?

Never mind.

Eating is always an option.

Of course, there are other fun activities.

There´s enough place in the household, so Milli, Guadelupe and Eric move in for a while.

Playing peek-a-boo.

 

 

Henry ages up.

He rolls coward.

Henry: The world is a dangerous place. I want to hide somewhere.

He´s now afraid of his dad doing laundry.

Jan: Seriously?

Nah, just kidding. There was a ghost.

Guadelupe and Milli seem to be very happy with each other.

 

Sims are all for gender equality.

Learning about rocks.

Here are some big ones.

 

 

We have some potions lying around.

 

He got the bumblebee wings! Cute!.

Time for Eric´s birthday.

I hope, he´s not a clone of his mom. He loves the outdoors, is artistic and now rolls perceptive.

Adriana shows up in her werewolf form. Nobody seems to care.

Storm stays a bit longer.

Which is a good thing, because Andromeda and Celia age up, too.

Celia wants to become a master acrobat, so I give her natural born performer. Andromeda rolls handy. She wants to become a superstar athlete.

I forgot to take “after” pictures. Whoops. Well, they don´t change that much.

156 Butt on fire

Random landscape pictures (again), because pretty.

 

Conall wanted to do some inventing. Something went wrong.

Uhm, Conall?

Conall: Mmmmh?

You don´t think, something is… amiss?

Conall: It´s a bit warm in here, now that you mention it.

That may be, because YOUR BUTT IS ON FIRE!

Conall?

Conall: Maybe I should go outside?

Conall: It´s a beautiful day…

It may be your last one, because, you know, butt, fire?

He finally gets it.

Conall: Aaaaah! Fire!

Conall: Aaaaaaaaaaah!!

Stop staring and get inside!

Conall: Don´t push me.

Turn around!

Conall: I can´t! I´m a sim!

Conall: You could have helped me out there, you know?

Well, I would have. Eventually.

One sim saved, but another is lost. Ingrid dies of old age.

 

She doesn´t want to go.

 

Kosta is heartbroken.

 

Poor guy.

The girls go to prom and score themselves some romantic interests. Both are face ones, so I gave them some more intersting genetics.

This is Andromeda´s RI, Franklin Weidling. I combined Rowan Orange (to finally get some of his genes) and Evelyn Kwon (a former paper girl of Hidden Springs). He looks cute.

And Celia´s RI, Luke Ransom. He got Adriana Busch Espinoza (the pretty werewolf I didn´t know the name of) aaaand… the Grim Reaper (he was an option, what do you expect me to do??). Also cute.

While the girls went home, they stayed and did their homework. Ok, then.

On the left is Bianca Shue-Riverhawk, who I really would have liked to have in the family. Funnily enough, she´s gay, but my girls are not.

And it´s time for Kosta to go.

I guess, he´s eager to see his wife again.

Grim stays for a bit and does some laundry.

Thanks, I guess?

Goodbye, Ingrid and Kosta.

155 No to faceclones

Celia, Andromeda and Henry discuss the uses of band-aids over breakfast.

Kosta and Ingrid have a duel on the front lawn. In their sleepwear. Why not.

Don´t know, who won.

Random pretty landscape.

Celia ages up to a teenager. She rolls social butterfly. Never had that before!

That´s a proud dad in the backround. I got rid of the hat, though.

And Andromeda ages up, too.

Jan: Didn´t we just have a birthday?

Yeah, well…

Aand that´s a faceclone, right there.

Not anymore! Thanks to mastercontroler. I didn´t realize until much later, that she lost her green eyes in the process.

She rolls natural cook.

Randolph broke the tab. Thank you.

Hi, Milli! Is that maternity wear?

(It is. She and Guadelupe had a little boy, Eric.)

Marina is there as well.

Luna reaches her lifetime wish of becoming a forensic specialist – Dynamic DNA profiler.

Jan´s banshee banisher got an upgrade.

Being a ghosthunter really makes your sim look cool!

 

Conall really likes Jan in his outfit.

 

Celia gets stuck in the schoolbus for a minute.

Celia: This is really inconvinient.

I really want to go to that spa.

 

Luna trains Moritz in ballet.

Luna: Up with that leg! Up, I say!

Moritz: I´m trying!

Kosta and Celia are very close.

These kids really have to stop blowing themselves up.

This is little Eric, Milli´s son.

 

Andromeda rolls her lifetime wish of superstar athlet out of the blue (non of her traits fit), so she starts training. It´s hard.

 

But she´s determined!

Two teenagers in the house means pranks.

Jan takes it pretty hard.

Jan: My hair!

 

 

Jan: They will pay!

Just take another shower.

154 Chess and unicorns

I bought that  bathing tub for babies and toddlers, so let´s try that.

Not bad, even if Henry insists on wearing a cap.

Jan meets a unicorn on his way back from hunting ghosts.

It really seems to appreciate the gifts.

 

Jan is good with animals.

He seems to have told Conall about it.

Conall: So, you met a unicorn?

Jan: Yeah, I had to jog quite a long way to where it was.

Conall: Ok, you won´t like this…

Conall: Checkmate, lover!

Jan:Whaaat??

Sadly, I didn´t catch it, but he wiped the chess pieces from the board to the ground!

Jan: *Silently swearing*

Conall: Ok, what just happened?

Conall: Well, I guess that ends our chess game.

Jan: You bet!

Ingrid has a show.

 

I send Kosta to watch. No clue, why he showed up in his pyjamas.

Andromeda visits Bianca Shue-Riverhawk after school. Everyone in that family seems to be in the military.

Andromeda makes up her own amusement.

GAH! Conall! Your baby!

Conall: Mmmmmh?

It´s a monster!

Conall: Whatever are you talking about?

… I think, it´s time for his birthday, anyway.

Party!

 

Seems like Miles turned into an elder (again). Time flies.

Henry rolls ambitious. He looks a lot like Conall, but he doesn´t have his nose.

153 Teeth rotting toddler cuteness

Babies are boring, so let´s age Henry up.

 

Much better!

Ingrid has reached her lifetime wish, but she still likes to perform for tips.

Marina: … why are you looking at me like that?

Random townie: Are you the one with the good stuff?

Marina: …maybe.

I send Conall, because he was getting stir crazy and he meets Dany. They are friends again.

Having second thoughts, Conall?

Conall: Well, you made me break up with him.

Uhm. Okay. Sorry about that.

Look, cute toddler!

Conall: Yes, it´s my cute toddler!

Jan is childish, so he can play with Henry with the dollhouse.

 

Later he wants to let Henry have a ride on the spring ride.

This is seriously adorable.

 

 

Jan: YOU ARE SO CUTE!

You alright there?

Jan: Hehe, yeah.

Okay, then teach him to walk.

Looking good.

Conall puts him in the crib for a nap.

Henry does not want to.

 

 

 

 

Gah, so cute!

The next day Jan teaches Henry to talk. Outside.

Jan: It´s cloudy. Can you say “cloudy”?

Jan, that´s hail.

Giving your son a bottle in the hail. No reason to go inside, if you have an umbrella.

Conall to the rescue.

That´s Bianca Shue-Riverhawk. She came home with one of the girls. She´s got an interesting face.

Luna autonomously lets Henry have a ride. Didn´t even know, that they could do that.

Oh, yeah, there are other children in the house.

Celia and Andromeda are best friends and always playing with each other.

A couple that does magic together, stays together.

They both have the magic hands LTR, but Kosta prefers to use a wand for some reason.

 

Some more toddler cuteness.

 

Oh, and Merry Christmas!
