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.

180 A lot of ghosts

Last pictures of toddler Carol.

 

 

It`s her birthday!

 

Ugh, no. Who clothed you?

I kind of have no picture of her make-over.

She rolls brave, by the way.

I sent Julius and Eric to the cemetry, because they were stir-crazy, and they ended up on a date somehow. Doesn´t mean, they have to stick together it seems.

Hey, Liam!

Oh, hi, Violetta, long time no see!

Sight. Fainting because of your own eldest son? Really.

Hi, Nathan!

Hi, Jaron!

Hi Connie and Fiona!

Hi, Jan! A lot of ghosts are out tonight!

Conall wants to visit the festival.

 

Marina wins. Wouldn´t have guessed that.

So here we have Rowan, who has wings, and ELIZA, who hovers in the air.

They still manage to fall down. Sims.

Dany and Marco are amusing themselves at a little beach.

No, I don´t think, that´s a good idea.

Marco seems to be a bit out of it.

 

But he´s happy about the nooboo.

That can´t be comfortable

 

 

They ran off after kissing for a while.

I let Conall check them out the next day. And added some baby cots. Also, I didn´t write down the babies names. I think, the girl is called Misty.

Yes, the girl is named Misty and the boy Onko. I don´t know where my game gets this names from.

They seem to be good dads, all in all.

Eric reached his lifetime wish. He´s now a star news anchor.

Here we have Rowan´s great-grandson. I did not write down his name. Gah, I´ll have to change this. His name is Rian Kahale-Grünberg.

He´s cute. Also, evil.

He and Carol became friends really fast.

That´s a husband settled, then. Only in the Sims.

179 Aging up and down

Luke and Celia are flirting in the garden. Must be a party.

The twins are aging up!

Laurel first. She rolls loves the heat.

Now Daphne!

She rolls excitable.

Eric: I´m not sure about the hair. And the shirt.

Conall: Will you change that, please.

Yes.

I gave them the same hair for their formal outfit.

 

Hi there, Franklin!

She does look a bit creepy. But cute.

I love it, when werewolves do „the claw“.

 

 

Laurel brings this guy home from school. I forgot his name, but they get along very well.

 

 

Isolde throws a party. I send Conall, to check out the house. Isolde, Catherine, Miles, Gabby, Erica and Henry live here.

Of course everyone gathers around irresistable Miles.

It´s a big house. Enough room for everyone.

Henry is an elder now. This is really weird.

 

Miles and Gabby, the cutest vampire couple ever.

 

I decided to let Conall throw a youth fountain potion at Dany. He reset. What´s wrong with this potion?

Back again. Dany hasn´t moved. Probably shocked.

But not for long.

Conall seems delighted.

 

While the two are canoodling, I age down Dany´s husband Marco with mastercontroler to avoid more resetting. They are also now both pregnant with each others child. (I think, I´m a bit bored).

Bryony goes to the consignment store for some reason. In front of it, Rudi is playing ball with his wife. Have some random pictures.

 

 

Bryony ran off while I wasn´t looking and started playing in the water.

Now I want to go on holiday.

178 Werewolf toddlers are difficult to babysit

Carol is adorable.

 

Conall is not family-oriented, but he always dotes on every toddler in sight.

 

So does Julius.

He also continues to flirt with Conall, even if he isn´t pregnant anymore.

Julius: That´s my fiancé´s kink.

Fiancé! Exactly! You are engaged! My sims are shameless. It´s probably my fault.

They just watched the stars, though. Or the moon, as it was.

 

Carol trains to be a good huntress.

 

She´s so cuuuute!

Some of the kids have a ballett show or something. The whole family goes, but they leave Carol for some reason, prompting the game to send a babysitter.

He stands outside the whole time. Wonder, why.

Carol: *growl*

Babysitter: I´m not going inside. Nope.

Time for some birthdays. First is Thanatos.

He rolls perceptive. Still no hair.

Now Bryony.

She rolls vegetarian.

The birthdays disturb dinner.

Daphne: I´m starving. Gimme!

Bryony: My cereal. Take that plate over there.

She does, after a while.

I gave Thanatos hair after all. He looks really good without, but his haircolour is too awesome to hide.

New hairstyle for Bryony as well.

She looks rather longing at Thanatos. As this is generation 10, they can do whatever they want, as far as I´m concerned.

Conall tries to befriend this ara.

It bites him.

Time to marry these two off.

No time for a big party, so they just have a nice date with a private wedding.

 

Awesome view, at least.

 

They continue to be adorable. I want them to have a kid, but there´s not really room in the household at the moment (the twins really threw off my plans). We´ll see.

177 Conall needs another child

Conall: I like breaking boards.

He does. He does nothing else, if you leave him alone for a second.

But we have other things to do right now.

I decided, Conall needs to have a baby with Dany. They seem to be totally on board with that.

On his way out Conall meets Marco.

Conall: Should I tell him, that I just got knocked up by his husband?

He might take offense. On the other hand, no, he won´t, because I disabled jealousy. I love Nraas mods.

Conall: I feel sick.

Conall: I seriously feel sick.

Conall: That´s all your fault!

Indeed, it is.

Conall gets his notice while cooking, but manages to not burn the house down.

Conall: Well, it´s not so bad.

For some reason, Eric starts flirting with Conall. He never did that before.

Conall: You do know, that I changed your diapers, right?

Eric: Well, I´ve grown up a bit. Wanna check?

Eric!

Conall: Uh, no thanks?

Eric: He´s so hot, pregnant and all.

… Let´s not talk about your kinks, ok?

 

Conall seems really happy about the nooboo.

Talking to dad.

Daphne likes to read in bed. I don´t know, if that book is age appropriate.

Conall´s back hurt, so he´s getting a massage by Julius. No romantic one, though, even if Julius would probably be open to the idea. I found him also flirting with Conall. Don´t know, what´s up with these guys.

Conall´s really muscular, so his baby belly looks funny.

Teamwork.

I love this gang.

And it´s show time!

Conall: You will be taking pictures of my misery, right?

Jep.

Conall: Aah, it burns!

Don´t be overly dramatic.

Conall: At least I can write a book about it.

He is an author – his lifetime wish wasn´t tied to a job, so he took up writing. I always forget about it.

Conall: … huh.

What now?

Conall: I think…

Yes?

Conall: Yeah, it´s gone. False alarm.

I kinda doubt that.

Conall: Augh, you´re right!

Conall: This is seriously very unpleasant.

Sorry, honey. It will be over soon.

Conall: Oh, yes, just let me grab inside and…

Conall: Tadaaa!

Well done!

Little Carol rolls athletic and easily impressed. She´s a werewolf.

We´ll age her up right away, because I want to see how she looks.

So cute!

176 Snowboarding

The kids wanted to go to the winter festival. Daphne really likes the snowboarding.

 

She´s quite good!

…well.

Daphne: Ouch.

But that does not stop her.

 

Laurel prefers the ice skating ring.

Thanatos returns home early and encounters a jumping igloo.

Thanatos: That´s such an awesome igloo!

Thanatos: It must be magical!

Thanatos: Or maybe it´s the yeti?

It´s neither-nor, but we won´t tell him.

Julius and Eric are obsessed with watching the stars.

They don´t let some snow stop them.

It is quite romantic.

Bryony wants to go fishing.

 

Ok, snow in Sunlit Tides does look a bit weird.

All of the children wanted to sign up for after-school activities. They promptly did their homework at the school grounds after that. Such good kids!

Daphne arrived a bit later, but the others wait for her.

 

Hi, Isolde! Will you come to the party?

Isolde: We´ll see.

Isolde tends to leave a party right after arriving. Don´t know, why.

It´s snowflake day!

There´s a mistletoe.

 

 

I don´t know, what happened, but it looks painfull.

Eric: Help.

He sorts himself out alright.

Celia is an elder now.

As is Andromeda.

Miles highly approves of his daughters marriage.

Looks nice.

Dany and Conall normally jump into bed as soon as Dany arrives to a party, but Conall was tending the bar this time, so Dany chose his husband instead.

Conall: I´m a bit disappointed.

The pary is not over yet.

Said husband is now standing in the snow in his underwear with Miles.

What´s going on here?

Miles: We´re talking about nail polish.

What?

Oh. Yeah. That CC nail polish is great, but for some reason it tends to attach itself to everyones outerwear.

Andromeda: That was such a great party.

Um. Thanks?

The girls open the last presents.

Laurel is still a cutie pie.

175 Don´t wanna leave the spring ride

Thanatos plays the piano.

Julius: How… how? Children are not able to do that in the Sims 3.

Thanatos: It´s a mod.

It´s a good one. „Children can„.

The girls are a good combination of their parents. Laurel has a lighter skin, the eyes of her dad and her mom´s hair.

Daphne has Erica´s skintone, her eyes and Henry´s hair.

Hi, Andromeda!

Conal wanted to visit the town. A lot of people show up.

Adriana Busch-Espinoza is due to age up in a few days. I think, her genetics are awesome, but she has no kids. Well, now she will have one. I completly forgot, who´s the dad, though.

Erica gets abducted.

 

This always amuses me.

 

Erica is not amused.

Eric and Julius being cute.

Laurel being grumpy.

Henry lets her ride on the spring ride.

Henry: It´s time to go inside.

Laurel: No.

Henry: Aw, you´re so cute. Let´s go now.

Laurel: No.

Henry: No?

Laurel: Don´t wanna.

Henry: Come here, kiddo.

Laurel: *pout*

She forgets about it a second later. That was so fricking cute.

Later she plays in a puddle.

Awww.

Daphne? Yeah, there´s also Daphne. Sorry.

Yep, it worked.

It´s Daphne´s and Laurel´s birthday.

Yes, you´re also cute.

 

First Laurel.

 

She rolls genius.

And now Daphne.

She´s now a technophobe.

Daphne: The TV scares me.

Poor child.

Adrienne will be a good mum.

174 Snow in Sunlit Tides

Eric and Julius try to find a romantic location…

… because they really want to get married. Proposing first, of course.

 

Marriage a bit later.

Conall is all over his granddaughters.

He´s now younger than their dad, but no one cares.

Sunlit Tides is a tropical island, so I probably shouldn´t let it snow.

But it´s so pretty!

 

 

 

 

 

Laurel can walk now.

This is one of the best pieces of CC ever – the toddler napping mat from modthesims. When they are tired, the toddlers will go to sleep there autonomously, the parents can tuck them in, and best of all, they are not trapped like in the cribs, which means, when they are fully rested, they just can start their day on their own. Brilliant.

Henry loves his children.

 

I think, Silvio is absent-minded.

Silvio: What am I even doing here?

There may be a birthday or two.

This is interesting, because I moved Andromeda and Celia out (because my game was getting really cranky with the overstuffed household), but when I clicked on the cake to age Bryony up, her mum picked her up anyway. She still has the highest relationship with her, so that may be the only deciding point.

I´m happy about it.

 

Serious case of cross-eyed.

This is better. She rolls shy.

There was also a cake for Thanatos, but it got too late, so he ages up on his own.

Aw, that´s sweet.

But a bit narcissistic, so…

Still no hair. I love, how his ears stick out. He rolls good sense of humour.

173 Some more babies

The fixer-upper car is very popular.

I kinda forgot about Eric´s birthday.

 

Middle age made him loose his hair.

Eric: Um… would you be so kind?

Here you go.

Eric: Thanks!

I´m not sure about this bathing table. Bryony looks kind of posessed.

This is better.

Let´s have some birthdays!

Dany is an elder now.

First Bryony.

She´s cute!

Olaf´s son Silvio is a teenager already.

And now Thanatos.

He got his mum´s (and grandpa´s) hair and the ears. So cute.

Everyone tends to the toddlers.

Bryony inherited her eyes from her grandpa Moritz. It looks quite striking.

Learning stuff.

Celia performs for tips. The audience consists of one. Perhaps it´s the rain.

Doesn´t really matter anyway, because she´s just here to complete her lifetime wish.

I downloaded a mod from modthesims that gives toddler more things to do, like playing in puddles. Can someone take the kid inside?

Too many sims in the household results in glitching toddlers.

It looks cute, though.

Kind of.

Ah, it´s mostly ok.

Let´s add another one!

 

I don´t know, how Henry ended up at the graveyeard at night, but it´s hard for him.

Hi, guys!

And hello, little witch!

We have a costume party for some reason.

Luke really seems to like Celia´s outfit.

I moved him and Franklin out. Celia and Andromeda will follow when the kids age up.

Sunlit Tide in the rain.

 

Conall has a slim phase. He´s kind of like the moon.

Conall: I´m very atuned to the moon.

Yeah, well.

So, I have no pictures of Erica giving birth, because I was kind of in shock.

This is Daphne. She´s a loner and a genie.

Thanatos seems to be happy about the new company.

 

Yeah, and here we have Laurel.

I think, it was my fault. I let Erica have a romantic massage at the massage table, while she was pregnant. I didn´t know, it gives a fertiliy moodlet, increasing the chances of twins and triplets.

This one is observant and a heavy sleeper.

Laurel is a doll, though. All toddlers are cute, but she´s really cute.

Well, we´ve got some stuff to do.

172 Some babies

Someone got invited to a party at Dany´s and Marco´s house. Henry takes the opportunity to throw potions at people.

Henry: He will kill me and I´ll never have children.

Olaf: I would kill you, man, but I´m too tired right now.

He sleeps standing up for a while.

Later he falls down. It was pretty hilarious.

Franklin and Andromeda plan the next generation.

Those two won´t be having children for a while, but they can start practicing.

 

 

Erica has her adult birthday.

 

 

Andromeda gets her notice.

So does Celia.

Time to be cute pregnant women.

 

 

 

Henry´s last potion.

And he took a potion himself earlier, so the points get doubled. Neat.

Some Sims are beyond help. I left her like that.

It´s time already.

They go to the hospital.

And come back with a little girl. Bryony is absent-minded and brave.

Celia has still a little time.

But she practices a bit by taking care of Bryony. Andromeda thinks, that is awesome. Julius does not.

And she goes to the hospital as well.

Little Thanatos is a heavy sleeper and clumsy.

Conall reaches the end of his lifetime. This won´t do.

I intended this to be the last potion for Henry, but for some reason the fountain of youth causes him to reset, and I didn´t want to mess up the fullfilment of his lifetime wish. So…

Conall is now younger than his son, which is a bit awkward.

Conall: I didn´t consent to this.

Well, too bad.
