190 The pink flamingo

Carol has obviously Conall´s nose.

But her face shape is different, also her eyes. A very good combination of her parents genetics.

Conall: Of course she is! … You really think, she has my nose?

Pretty sure.

(That´s Mortimer Goth´s nose, who´s Conall´s granddad).

A new case, this time for ELIZA. Something about a flamingo.

But first, Thanatos tests the merry-go-round, that I got as the daily deal and placed at the junkyard.

Seems like a good idea.

 

 

ELIZA seems to be doing her own investigation, she scans Julius. I don´t think, he would have nabbed her flamingo.

Following a hot scent.

Main suspect: Rudi Holden-Gallardo. He´s an elder now.

That´s his son. That´s some not so successful combination of genes. Sorry.

Milli knows something.

And case closed! The flamingo is saved!

Thanatos was standing right at a club and wanted to try a drink, so here we are.

I brought Sixty-Nine over. (I really have to give him a proper name).

They are an odd couple. They never roll any wishes for each other, the only thing they do together is wohoo.

I also brought Conall, because why not. The club is a bit empty, but he´s having fun.

189 Breaking and entering

I´m having a blast with Thanatos lifetime wish. Here he´s getting a new case.

He has to search for clues in Olaf´s mail. Olaf is the emperor of evil. And he comes home early.

Well, this is awkward.

Olaf: Thanatos. Can I help you?

Thanatos: Olaf! No! I´m good! Just, um, some mail of you was in our mailbox. Here it is! I will be going now.

Smooth.

He doesn´t seem to suspect anything. Perhaps we can search the trash can now.

Yeah, that´s a problem.

Thanatos: I can´t reach it.

It´s right there!

Thanatos: I´m a sim.

We can´t break into the house with Olaf in it. Let´s go home.

The next day, Thanatos picks his first lock.

And finds the clues! Case closed!

So, Gabby and her daughter Catherine are dining at the bistro. At different tables. They are both vampires.

A lot of ghost activity.

 

Daphne seems to have offended Thanatos somehow. He decides to turn her into a toad.

 

Thanatos: This will teach you!

What did you do?

Daphne: I don´t know!

Well, Julius has to throw potions at people anyway. I always forget about his lifetime wish, and just treat him like a live-in maid.

Julius: I like cleaning.

I know you do.

188 Rekindeling of romance

Thanatos job as a investigator lets him visit all kind of places.

He speaks to Misty about a case. I have to say, Dany and Marco do not seem to be a very good combination, concerning, well, looks. Sorry, Misty.

I never knew, you could sit on the fountain.

I brought Jan´s urn back in the house to see, what would happen. This is nice.

Nothing like taking selfies with your dead husband on a full-moon´s night.

There´s a nectary in town. Daphne is quite enthusiastic about it.

Um.

You do you, Carol.

She looks quite sharp in her uniform.

Jan is out again.

 

 

 

They are taking it slow.

 

Of course, I knew about shower-wohoo. I did not know, that a sim can „hop in“ with an already showering sim. It´s quite funny.

 

 

Carol and Conall meet Silvio and Rian at the local gym.

 

Conall ends up training Rian. Perhaps to give him a chance.

187 Romantic options

This being the 10th generation and all, I thought I could throw my rules out of the window and make Bryony and Thanatos a couple. They really like each other.

But Bryony is still glitched – she can´t change her outfit and has no romantic options with anyone. I hoped, the move would clear that up, but it didn´t. I could let her have his baby, but I don´t know. We´ll see.

A friendly hug is all that they can do.

Sixty-Nine and Laurel seem to get closer, but I kind of wanted him to date Daphne? Well, her boyfried isn´t very interesting, so I guess this is possible, too.

Um, guys?

GUYS??

This was definitly not planned. I don´t know, what happened. When I checked them, they both had the „first kiss“ moodlet, but I didn´t see them kiss before this. Perhaps Thanatos cast a love spell? Gah. They are cute together and all, but my PLANS!

They like the car.

Sixty-Nine: Can you, like, move? We want to… use this car.

Daphne: Just one moment! Don´t mind me!

Hi, Kisa!

A few people come over.

Carol and Rian wohoo in the time machine.

They encounter some trouble.

Rian: Shit, where did they come from?

Rian: Carol?

Carol: I´m here! Close, close, CLOSE!

Carol: That was a bad idea!

(Carol has a real bad sunburn, btw)

Well, this relationship doesn´t seem to be very faithful. Eric is flirting with Sixty-Nine, who returns it. I have disabled jealousy, but Thanatos is NOT amused.

Conal interrogates Rian.

Conall: So, you think you can date my daughter, huh?

Rian: Yes, sir!

Conall: I mastered martial arts. Just so you know.

Carol: Daaaad!

Carol: Don´t worry, all he ever breaks are space rocks.

Conall: Yes, dear, and they are really hard to break.

Julius: I think, Eric and I should test the time machine.

At your own risk.

186 Moving to the moon

Sunlit Tides was getting buggy, so we moved – this is Moon Base Charlie II by Rflong 7.

It looks quite interesting.

Of course, I took the other families with us.

Conall´s first wish in the new world was for „the beast“, so why not?

He´s having a blast. It´s his rebellious trait.

 

 

The parks in the domes are green.

He comes home rather late. In werewolf form, for some reason.

Yeah, better use that umbrella, no one likes a wet dog.

Conall: *Growl*

The ancestors are unpacked as well.

 

Everything seems to be working.

 

This world is unpopulated, so I put in some downloaded sims. This is SIXTY-NINE Bee, by Julie. You can download him here.

I liked him, so I added him to the family. He has the ability to fish through walls. Perhaps Daphne will fancy him?

Marina looking good, as always.

I like Rowan´s current wife, so I made her a fairy.

Thanatos looking for clues.

Conall changes a lot into his werewolf form at the moment.

 

I really should do something about the hat.

Carol also favours covering her head as a werewolf.

She´s gorgeous.

Like her dad.

Conall: I don´t look that good.

Hush.

 

185 Werewolf fighting

Conall and Carol do some werewolf fighting.

 

He totally lets her win.

Carol: You didn´t even try!

Conall: You really expect me to hurt my baby girl?

Carol: You´re such a softie.

Changing back leads to itching.

Cutie pie.

I changed his martial arts outfit.

Winter has come.

I placed a shower in the middle of the living room, so Bryony can raise her handiness skill by upgrading it. Of course someone had to use it, and someone other had to walk in.

Conall is in a slim phase again.

Julius seems to appreciate it.

Conall: OUT of the bathroom!

You are not in a bathroom.

Everyone wanted to the winter festival, so we went.

Some sims have a interesting choice of outdoor clothing.

 

And some sims seem to think, outdoor clothing is for loosers.

I get cold just looking at her.

Turns out, Bryony is glitched (badly), and can´t change her clothing at all. Couldn´t fix her to this day.

 

Thanatos seems to click with the paparazzi I improved.

But they start argueing after building a snow man.

Erica on the other hand has some fun with the nice scottish young man.

It´s a party!

Carol grows up into a young adult.

Daphne: That hair is horrible.

I´m on it.

Much better. She rolls family friendly.

184 Telling spooky stories to a gravestone

Carol is athletic, so she´s always doing stuff. She´s nearly level 10 already.

Thanatos has his first case. He´s hired by Gabby of all people. Thanatos seems to like her.

It´s just a bit of garbage digging. Case closed.

I had him stalk out somebody at the library just for fun. He´s very inconspicuous.

Misty and Onko are doing their homework at the consignment store for some reason. Well, at least they are doing it at all.

 

I added Erica and Henry to the family again, because Henry was at the end of his lifespan, and, well…

 

 

He seems happy to go.

Everyone is sad.

 

Erica chats a bit with Grim afterwards.

Then she starts telling a ghost story in front of her just deceased, cowardly husband. I don´t think, this is very appropriate.

 

 

She seems to be sad, at least.

It´s weird to see Conall lose his son to old age.

Carol is very upset about her older half-brother dying.

So upset, that she turns into a werewolf and can´t turn back for a while.

I think, that´s sweet.

Life goes on. There´s a costume party.

People seem to enjoy themselves.

Carol talks to her half-brother Onko.

Flirting in this costume is just ridiculous.

That´s better.

Laurel gets invited to a party at her boyfriend Darrick´s house. Dany is also there and tries to flirt with her. She doesn´t appreciate that at all.

He gets a good telling off.

Although he doesn´t seem to really understand it.

 

They have a really cute kitten.

 

Henry comes for a visit.

Erica tries a heat of the moment kiss.

But he doesn´t seem to like that for some reason.

Talking is ok.

Also watching the stars together.

Goodbye, Henry. You are a funny one.

183 Egypt

It´s summer. Let´s go on holiday!

To Egypt!

 

 

I send them to the market place and let them do whatever they want.

 

Seriously?

 

 

Thank you, Laurel.

In the night  it starts raining.

 

 

Still drizzling in the morning. Doesn´t matter, let´s go sight-seeing.

 

 

 

 

 

For some reason my game decided to send Guadelupe as a tourist to Egypt as well.

Doesn´t matter, a good opportunity for Eric to catch up with his dad.

Guadelupe leaves at some point and Eric starts playing the violin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile Carol is eating a whole grilled lettuce.

It´s probably healthy and stuff.

Carol: Crunchy.

Ok.

 

 

The next day there´s some more exploring.

 

Julius and Eric test a sarcophagus.

 

 

Grilling some more lettuce.

 

And other stuff. Do you intend to eat this all yourself?

Thanatos: Yes.

Whatever. It´s the last evening of the holiday.

182 Some important birthdays

Onko playing in the sand.

Carol visits Rian after school. While he´s still doing homework she chats with his dad Silvio.

They play a game of catch. I never saw that before.

Carol seems annoyed, that she couldn´t catch him.

I like Silvio.

Oops, kinda forgot the twins birthday. It´s kinda an important one.

Daphne rolls loves to swim. Her lifetime wish is Renaissance sim.

 

Laurel rolls flirty. Her LTR is Illustrious author.

Graduation day.

Some confusion after the ceromony.

 

For some reason most of them decide to swim in the fountain.

No, that´s not a swimming pool.

Well, these two prefer to flirt a bit.

 

Moar flirting.

And some routing issues. But seriously, I love that picture.

Thanatos remembers about space.

Erica is an elder now.

 

Silvio seems to love this game.

Conall seems embarrassed.

Conall: Really should be able to catch a fairy.

They are actually best friends. Don´t know, how that happened.

Carol ages up.

 

She rolls loves the outdoors.

She looks a lot like her dad, but there´s nothing wrong with that.

Laurel plays for Henry.

I send Julius to the graveyard to gather some tombstones. He meets the whole Earthsong-Dust family.

 

Is that pretty or creepy? Can´t decide.

Milli and Guadelupe still seem to be very happy.

And some landscape.

So, generation 10 are all young adults now (Carol is actually generation 9). But I continued to play, so…

181 Losing a lot of people

Laurel contemplates charming the snake.

Eric has to write something for his job.

 

These three are best friends.

Pictures of beautiful Sunlit Tides.

 

 

I saw this weird cloud.

 

It seems to be a stuck ghostbuster event. I reset the lot but it didn´t do anything. It was gone the next time I started the game, though.

Hi, Celia!

A random face-one paparazzi. She now has some alien DNA.

Nothing against a bit of flirting.

Okay, that´s enough. You´re both still teenagers.

Carol´s first transformation into a werewolf.

She enjoys it very much.

I gave Dany and Marco´s kiddos some learning equipment.

Talking to Onko.

And Misty.

Rian came home from school with Carol. He´s tired and asks for a bedtime story. Cute little evil boy.

It´s a party! But not for Laurel.

Bryony and Thanatos are having their birthday. Thanatos has to leave midway because of his job at the cemetery. I forgot to have him take a day off.

Pretty girl. She rolls friendly. Her LTW is the tinkerer.

I hope Celia will stick around until her son comes home to have his birthday.

Um.

Well, this is unexpected.

 

She´s ready to go, though.

 

Yeah well. Happy birthday, Thanatos.

He rolls socially awkward. I kind of think, this is a trait that should be given a child or teenager, but well.

He wants to become a Pervasive Private Eye. Never done that before!

Andromeda is the same age as Celia, so I send Bryony to visit her parents.

They are living in a cute little house.

Talking to their daughter isn´t top priority.

 

Andromeda runs off to work after a while and Franklin also leaves the house, so Bryony returns home. There I get the notice, that Andromeda died.

Eric sets himself on fire while working with metal.

He doesn´t run to the shower on his own, so I order him to.

 

Eric: That was unpleasant.

Glad I saved you?

Eric: Yes!

Bryony visits her dad again.

He´s sad.

So she trys to cheer him up a bit.

He then walks to the beach…

… and plays in the ocean.

Then he just vanishes and I get the notice that he died. He wasn´t on a lot, so Grim never showed up.

Poor Bryony.

She´s not upset though, because her parents weren´t part of the played family anymore.

Thanatos´ dad Luke also died. I wanted to visit him, but it didn´t work out.

Goodbye Celia and Luke.

And goodbye Andromeda and Franklin.
