148 Bachelor party

Last time we had a lot of romance in China. No reason to stop with it back in Hidden Springs.

Milli: I´m outta here.

Conall and Jan wanted to do some karaoke.

They are not very good, but they are having fun.

Conall, we have guests, please stop the floating.

Gabby and Miles seem to be still madly in love.

This is a very pretty werewolf. I wrote down her name somewhere. Have to look it up when I´m back in game, she´s still around.

It´s Milli´s birthday.

Milli: You can stop now.

Storm: *tooooooooooooooot*

Milli rolls brave.

And now I have to perform some plastic surgery. That´s her teeth clipping through her cheeks.

Her jaw is too small.

That´s better. There´s still some teeth showing in this picture, but it was gone in the next frame.

I could have done more, but then she wouldn´t have looked like herself anymore.

Rowan and Milli bond over their shared trait, brave. Good sims to have around in case of a fire.

The next day there´s graduation.

Miles walks his dog again.

Kisa died. I placed her gravestone between her husbands, Liang and Teodor.

Moritz writes his latest book.

And done!

And lifetime wish achieved!

Some more points for finishing the book.

As an avant-garde sim, Milli has to critize every “art” she encounters.

Jan wanted to become a ghost hunter. His lifetime wish isn´t bound to a job, so why not? Except, that it´s glitchy. But fun.

He also wants a bachelor pary. Conall, did you loose a bet?

Conall: I don´t want to talk about it.

Jan: *giggles*

Okay.

On the left is Milli´s romantic interest from prom, Guadelupe Earthsong.

The dancers, as usual, choose the most inappropriate room for their show.

I like, that the game adapts to the sexual orientation of the sim. Jan seems to be having fun.

Jan: Nice butt!

Ingrid appreciates it, too.

In fact, nearly everyone does.

Guadelupe seems to be a nice guy. Milli asks him to be her boyfriend.

Ingrid does a speach for Jan. I think, it was embarassing.

I don´t know, what Marina is doing, but judging by Rowan´s reaction, she´s dealing with some fairy drugs.

Ingrid: I want a baby.

Kosta: What, now?

Ingrid: Yes. Get going!

Kosta: Just a sec…

She collapses a moment later, so no babies today.

Some others had fun, though. It´s a raging party!

Nearly everyone seems to be drunk.

Or it´s the fairy drugs.

 

Some of the guests stay until morning. Seems like a successfull party.

147 Romance in China

Conall as a werewolf still has no table manners.

But he likes to take bubble baths.

Conall: Please go away.

´kay.

Milli did something. Don´t know, what.

Wait for it…

Tadaa! Lifetime wish achieved!

Isolde seems to be in a hurry.

Kosta completed his lifetime wish some time ago. He´s now a mad scientist.

Nothing much going on here right now…

So let´s travel to China!

Moritz: Wow, a whole new country! Let´s play computer games!

Milli: I brought Dan.

I already told your grandmother that I did not want the dragons in China.

I have three couples to marry. Let´s start with the first one.

This skirt is not made for kneeling.

But who cares.

Those two are practically married anyway, so they have a nice little private ceromony.

 

 

Ok, you can run off now, to do whatever you want.

Next one!

 

 

 

She turns him down! Damn insane sims! I should have made her do the asking. Now I have to wait, until the moodlet expires.

Back at the camp, Milli plays hacky sack with Jan.

I send him to see Conall, so she goes dancing instead.

That face really is a bit weird.

Milli: What´s with my face?

Nevermind, you´re cute.

Conall is sparring with someone.

 

He wins! He should, he has a higher rank, but you never know.

Beautiful china.

Conall and Jan aren´t even officially a couple yet, but they are eager to change that.

 

 

Perhaps a bit fast, but I lost patience.

Conall nearly drops the ring. I always forget, that he is clumsy.

Jan, as a sensible person, says yes. Looking at you, Luna!

 

 

More beautiful China.

 

 

 

 

 

It was a long day.

Milli does a bit of exploring the next day.

She finds… something, then she gets hungry. It´s just for fun anyway, so she goes back up.

Conall was nearby and a bit stinky. I clicked on his moodlet, expecting him to wash his hands, but instead he decided to take a dip in the well.

Conall: I feel a bit drenched.

That´s entirely your fault.

As he is already down there, he does a bit of looting.

Then it´s already time to return home.

It´s a sims pile! Ingrid is the most sensible one.

Luna gets left behind.

But she has a car in her pocket.

146 A lot of death

Milli ages up to a teenager.

She rolls photographer´s eye.

Kisa: My, she looks just like her dad!

Yeah, she does.

Poor girl has a really flat face.

Jake Preston really does not make pretty kids.

Jake: Hey!

Just saying.

Kisa then adds to Conall´s growing collection of gems.

 

Luna has a close encounter with Randolph.

Miles and Gabby´s house is up the street. They sometimes walk by with their dogs.

Miles seems to like his spacesuit. Perhaps it´s comfy.

Catherine visits out of the blue. I don´t know, why I gave her that outfit.

Why are you her, Cathy?

Catherine: I just wanted to play the drums.

Ok.

Jan most certainly got his grandma´s haircolour.

She stays for a while, chatting.

Lots of redheads around. I´m curious for their kids.

Speaking of. It´s really time for the next generation, but I had the tiny problem of my elders living way past their lifespan of 128 days, not just in the active household, but all over town. With the EA programming, a sim has a certain chance to die each day, after they reach the end of their lifespan. Depending on the setting, it´s a really low number, and it doesn´t accumulate. So I downloaded a mod from modthesims, to increase the chance of dying to 33 % per day.

Scott is the first to go.

 

 

He seems to be ok with it.

 

Xena is next.

 

She most definitly is not ok with it, but as usual, Grim can´t be persuaded.

 

I made sure, they spend a lot of time together.

Sebastian is last.

 

Grim got routing issues, so I don´t know, what Sebastian´s reaction was.

Sorry, Storm. As a djinn, she has double the lifespan of a normal sim, so she will be around for quite a bit.

Some soothing landscape after all the drama.

Goodbye, Scott!

Goodbye, Sebastian!

Goodbye, Xena!

Love you all!

145 Working on lifetime wishes

Milli has the men of the family wrapped around her little finger.

Everyone wants to care for her.

For some reason Moritz and Luna graduate at home.

 

They still go to city hall, though.

Building logic can be fun!

Random beautiful landscape.

Milli decides to sleep in the fairy house.

Her grandma Kisa is still around.

Sebastian and Storm being cute.

And it´s time for Milli´s birthday!

She rolls avant garde. Never had that before.

She has none of her mom´s colouring, which is a bit disappointing.

But she´s still cute.

Gabby and Miles stay a bit longer.

It´s also Ingrid´s birthday.

She has a private party.

Sebastian tries to read Milli to sleep.

It doesn´t work.

Milli: I´m sooo tired! Read another one!

Sebastian: Help. Please.

Done.

Conall has returned to his old weight. I like him better this way.

Everyone is working hard on their lifetime wish.

We have a police car now!

Which I seem to have misplaced in the meantime. Mmh.

 

 

A bit relaxation is in order.

Talking to mom.

Also talking to mom.

Anyone tired of landscape pictures?

Because I´m not.

 

 

144 Surprise toddler

Luna ages up to adult. She rolls insane. Her lifetime wish is to become a forensic specialist: dynamic DNA profiler.

And of course, it´s Moritz´s birthday, too.

He rolls ambitious. His lifetime wish is professional author.

Here we have adult Luna.

And here we have toddler Milli.

Ok, who´s Milli?

So, I got the notice, that Marina gave birth to a baby girl. I sent Ingrid to investigate. The baby daddy is Jake Preston, who was at Marina´s house at that moment, even if he doesn´t live there. They are not even romantic interests, and he´s engaged to another woman (Emmaline Rhoen). It´s just a fling, I guess?

I kind of don´t like him, and they left the toddler in the snow to wohoo.

So I kidnapped her. Milli is good and friendly and a total cutey pie.

Conall has to brake up with Dany Shue.

Dany is not happy.

Neither is Conall.

In hindsight, I regret this – because at this point I threw my own rules out of the window and mixed the lineage.

Everyone loves Milli.

 

 

 

She´s so cute.

 

 

Conall´s lifetime wish is not bound to a job and he wants to become an author. So unlike Moritz, he writes just for fun.

Random picture of beautiful landscape.

It´s Jan´s birthday. Dany is invited and tells everyone, how Conall broke his heart. I´m sorry, ok?!

 

He rolls childish. His lifetime wish is perfect mind, perfect body.

Rowan´s son Olaf is evil. He steals Milli´s candy!

Marina thinks, it was a great party. She didn´t try to interact with her daughter once.

Kosta also think, it was a great party, but that´s probably because he got some.

Crystal stays a bit longer.

There may be some flirting going on. Sure, go ahead.

143 Lots of snow

Conall aged up last time, so now he graduates!

Sebastian decides to make a snow angel in front of the city hall.

Jan and Conall can´t do very much now, because Jan is still a teenager.

Conall: That´s ok.

Conall also has to yell at Jan, when he places a prank in the shower.

But they can hug it out afterwards.

Yep, looking good.

The massage table is always popular.

Scott plays for Xena. She seems thrilled.

Storm needs some special nanites for her bot-building. So I placed all of them on some community lot.

Sebastian catches them for her.

Hidden Springs is still pretty.

 

 

Ingrid has a show.

Kosta helps.

She looks like Zatanna from DC Comics. But with less cleavage.

Kisa is old.

She also lost her husband, Teodor, which is sad.

We make Luna´s IF Moritz into a real sim!

He´s a couch potato, a loser, eco-friendly and hydrophobic, which are pretty horrible traits, but he seems to be a nice sim anyway.

He´s also a face one, so I made him over. Now he looks a bit like a vulcan.

One of his first wishes was to place a stink bomb. I´ve never let a sim do that, so why not?

Sadly, it didn´t do much.

Conall is working out a lot, so he´s really slim now. Don´t know, if I like it.

Playing with the future son-in-law. Perhaps.

Sebastian is at the graveyard for some reason and makes this snowman.

Sebastian: We are all going to die.

Uhm… Let´s go home? There´s a party.

Because it´s snowflake day.

Everyone is having fun.

I don´t know, what Kisa said.

Snowflake day indeed!

142 Snowy Hidden Springs

Winter is here!

So here are a bunch of pictures of a snowy Hidden Springs, because it´s seriously beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Storm is still working on her bot-skill.

Conall and Jan are having a thrilling conversation about science or something.

Ingrid performs for tips at the festival grounds.

Crystal got old and lost all sense of fashion. Isn´t that cold?

Crystal: Just a little.

Better?

Crystal: Much.

She´s really good at ice skating.

Kosta is not.

Kosta: I feel followed.

Ingrid is done with performing and gets to the fun stuff.

Well, yes, that´s… romantic, I guess.

Kosta: I don´t know about you, but I think, I have to get up, if we ever want kids.

Ingrid: It´s all in your mind.

Conall has his birthday.

 

 

He rolls brave. His lifetime wish is physical perfection, so he has to master the athletic and the martial arts skill. Piece of cake.

141 Lifetime wishes and birthdays

Sebastian reaches his lifetime wish.

And these are the points for mastering the painting skill.

Ingrid has to work a bit longer on her LTW.

Who´s in there?

Ingrid: One moment. There´s some resistance.

Uhm…

Oh, good, everything is ok.

Storm: You nearly killed me!

Ingrid: Shhh, smile for the audience!

Conall visits the Shue house after school. These are Star and Carlotta.

They are both cute, but Conall is gay. And he doesn´t like Gary. Pity.

His clothes in werewolf form are so hilarious, that I let him keep them.

Conall: Rawr! I´m a dangerous rebellious teenager! Doing the dishes!

You´re cute as a button.

Conall: Am not!

Scott, isn´t he cute?

Scott: Totally!

Conall: DAD!

He gives up and changes back, trying to charm the snake.

Conall: Hehe, it didn´t work.

So cute.

I may or may not have some plans for those two. Is that creepy? … Na, it´s Sims.

Hi Liam!

It´s Spooky Day! And Prom, for some reason.

Ingrid and Kosta spend the whole evening canoodling.

 

Aand Conall ends up with Dany Shue as a romantic interest. That´s a pity, because he´s nice.

This girl took the “Under the sea” theme a bit too literaly.

Luna ages up to teen.

She rolls dramatic.

Luna: Too tired to be dramatic.

The niece is older than the uncle. She will live longer though, because she´s a djinn.

And anyway, it´s Jan´s birthday, too.

 

He rolls commitment issues.

140 Umbrella shark

Hidden Springs is a really beautiful world.

 

But there are some dangerous animals here. It´s the vicious umbrella shark!

Run, Ingrid!

She escaped in time. Phew.

It´s a fullmoon.

Conall: It´s hard to think in werewolf form.

Conall: But I can tear out your jugular in two seconds flat!

Isn´t he precious?

Conall: *growl*

Benito heart-farts Liam, who is visiting the graveyard. He was always sending Liam love letters in life, so I guess he´s bi.

Luna´s imaginary friend Moritz becomes alive.

We´ll see.

Scott and Xena being cute elders.

It´s leisure day, so I send the family to the pool.

 

Liam is getting really old. He could go any time.

Ingrid performs for tips.

No sharks this time. Only doves.

It´s Conall´s birthday.

He´s a really good mix of his parents.

He rolls over-emotional.

Someone´s at the door.

Gabby: The doorbell rings. Whatever shall we do??

Miles: Just open the damn thing.

No way. It´s the university mascott.

No.

Crystal´s husband died. You know, her former father in law?

Father of this cute little guy. Yeah, that one.

Luna bores Conall to death. Well, to sleep.

Later she has a nice conversation with her uncle Jan about school.

(I kidnapped Jan, btw., there was a free place in the houshold).

Conall recovers and plays with the chicks.

And then Liam´s time is up.

 

 

He´s ok with it.

 

Goodbye, Liam. You are a great sim!

139 Picnic with ants

Ingrid´s lifetime wish is to become a magician, so let´s start with this.

Ah, it will get better.

Someone abandoned a picnic. The ants eat the rest.

Liam wanted to give Luna a ride on the spring ride.

There are bubbles!

This is so cute.

More cute Luna.

And another birthday! Scott ages up to elder.

You look very distinguished.

Scott: Ah, thank you!

Why are you looking like that, Miles?

Miles: Cake!

Vampires don´t eat cake.

Miles: Who told you that nonsense? Birthday cake is for everyone!

Ah, okay.

Mortimer is out that night.

Luna is not the only cute one.

Speaking of toddlers. Why am I showing this one?

Huh, Crystal? Do you have something to say?

Crystal: Sorry, busy!

Crystal: I won! Sorry, gotta go!

So, I moved Crystal out some time ago, into the household of Benito Bräutigam, her husband. They lived happily ever after, together with Benito´s father, Tobie, until Benito died of old age. Crystal, being a djinn, is still an adult. She then began a relationship with her father in law, who was mysteriously still alive. So, this little boy is Storm´s half-brother, as well as Luna´s uncle. His name is Jan. Yay. Thank´s Crystal.

Ingrid: I eat to that.

You´re not helping.

Conall meets a classmate at the park and buys some cake.

It´s getting dark. Time to go home.

Nathan is busy tonight.

Nathan: Places to go! Things to do!

I follow him. Marina is on her way to somewhere, too.

He vanishes in front of this house. Don´t know, what this was about.

Storm gets into bot-building. Perhaps we can have a bot sometime?

Last moments with Luna as a toddler.

 

She rolls No sense of humour.
