169 A nearly perfect party

Conall and Henry like to spend time together.

 

Hidden Springs in the rain.

 

 

Celia wanted a Bachelorette party. As usual, I don´t discriminate – everyone is invited.

There´s a lot of dancing going on. On the right, Rudi Holden-Gallardo, a collegue of someone. His outfit was boring, so I changed it.

This elderly lady wasn´t invited, but she seems nice enough.

Conall dances with Marco, Dany´s husband.

They seem to get along.

So, then the uninvited elderly lady dies.

She seems pretty cool about it.

I guess, she had a nice last evening.

Conall: This party rocks!

Have you looked behind you? No? Ok, carry on.

Luke dances with ELIZA and manages to step on her non-existent toes.

 

I forgot to change Erica and Henry´s formal wear, so they are still in their wedding outfits. Ah, well, it suits them.

It´s really a good party.

 

Although Maro senses  a betrayal (I have jealousy disabled. Don´t know, what he´s on about).

Oh, Dany´s dancing with Rudi.

Marco got him back.

There´s a lot of love in the air. Some like it, some don´t.

The next day I make Luke a witch, because I want their child to be one.

 

I also give him an awesome ride.

It´s a wedding! In the rain again! (I have no one to blame but myself).

But they don´t seem to care that much.

 

 

Luke gets a phone call for a date right after the ceremony from some random sim we don´t even know.

Luke: What? No, I just got married! Who even are you?

They really hurried to go back inside. I have to plan this events better.

168 Intimidating eyebrows

Celia does a lot of performing for tips. She´s nearly at the top of her career.

Not much audience, though. We invite Luke over.

It´s a good place for a proposal.

He happily accepts!

The random dog is quite right, Celia is a witch. I forget sometimes.

Franklin ages up. Henry seems to disaprove.

Henry: Aging up, huh? Feeling cocky, you little twerp?

Franklin: Jealous of the sparkles, are we? Wait, until I´m finished here!

Henry: *not impressed*

Franklin: How do you even speak to your elders?

Henry: Whoa, I didn´t say anything!

Those eyebrows are truely intimidating.

Much better.

Luke also ages up. I totally forgot their birthdays.

Looking good.

Scott dropped by for a relaxing foot massage.

Erica is very happy to be married.

Celia has a show. It´s raining again.

She brought Dan for some reason.

Further proof that you can´t dragon and drive.

Sometimes it seems to work.

Although it really looks weird and she stands up at every corner.

167 Rainy weddings

We´re planing an outdoor wedding. The rain has to go.

Conall: I´m on it!

 

Conall: Does this thing actually work?

Give it a minute.

Conall is now way older than Dany. Neither of them seems to care.

The rain is gone, but it´s still very dark. Ah, well.

 

 

Most important part of the wedding.

 

Isolde always gets a piece.

Isolde: What?

Never mind.

The romantic atmosphere inspires Andromeda to propose to Franklin.

He accepts!

 

Andromeda: The wedding arch is right here, so…

Franklin: Huh? Uh, okay.

The rain is back.

Ah, who cares.

The guests are gone, but the family is still there.

166 Some birthdays and a proposal

Dancing fairies. Must be a party.

Conall is becoming an elder.

I do not like this.

Dany seems unperturbed.

 

The next evening Conall is invited to a party at Miles´and Gabby´s house.

Everyone is in the bathroom for some reason.

Erica seems to like pancakes.

Erica: I´m hungry.

Later Conall does a portrait of her.

Uhm. Well.

Do you like it Erica?

Erica: I love it!

Okay then.

Some random elder lady. I like her style.

Marina going somewhere.

Celia decides to wear her costume again. I understand, why she wanted to wear her robes instead.

Gabby and Miles are still into each other.

 

Back at home, Celia has her adult birthday. The game is pretty laggy at the moment, so she doesn´t get a party.

Still looking hot.

And it´s Andromeda´s birthday as well.

Also still hot.

Henry falls out of the bed. Well, actually, he woke up because of a ghost and then fainted.

And up again.

In the morning he asks Erica to marry him.

She accepts!

 

165 This library needs a photo booth

Everyone in the family is paired up at the moment. Conall seems a bit lonely.

Conall: Ah, I´m good, thank you.

We´re going to the spring festival.

Conall: Ok, then.

The man at the kissing booth leaves as soon as Conall is aproaching. His loss.

Instead he does a bit egg hunting.

He still has a wish to be kissed at the kissing booth. It´s vacant at the moment, so he mans it himself.

No one seems to want to kiss this pretty face.

Conall: I was fine before this, really. Thanks for making me depressed.

Shortly before we leave the festival, the kissing booth man comes back and remembers his work ethics.

Conall takes a bath when he comes home and has an encounter with Benito.

Conall: Lovely day, really. He was totally peeking!

He probably was, I remember him flirting with Liam.

Celia suddenly wants to perform only in her graduation robes.

They are not very revealing, which probably explains the enthusiasm of the audience.

Conall meets Dany at the library. Dany is much younger than he should be – I aged him down a few times, with the vage plan to hook them up later. But he went and got himself married!

Conall: Perhaps he´s open to an affair.

I like his nose. He should have kids.

Henry wandered in and started reading, while those two were staring at each other.

OK, just a little flirt.

And a bit of heat of the moment kissing. If he doesn´t like it, we back off.

Well, no backing off, then.

Oh, look, a photo booth suddenly appeared in the library. I wonder, how that happened?

Conall: Should we… take some photos?

Dany: Seems like a splendid idea!

 

Henry: OK, that´s too much! I´m leaving!

No one forced you to sit at that desk.

Henry: But I like the colours!

Conall: So, let´s see the photos…

Conall: *gasp*

Not good then?

Conall: Totally got our bad side! No one shall see!

Conall: That was fun!

I´m happy, when you are happy.

 

Dany seems also quite cheerful.

And all this time, Olaf, emperor of evil, was sleeping peacefully upstairs.

164 More dystopian future

The next days in the future consisted mostly of running around, watching the scenery and collecting things.

 

Andromeda visits the Plumbot shop and has some nice converstions.

Henry and Erica do some sight-seeing together. Someone hits on Erica, but she totally shoots him down.

She prefers her Henry.

The sunset is stunning.

 

 

The food seems to be a bit weird, but edible.

Some landscape pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

I think, Luke got one of those.

They had enough skills, so the music was actually great.

The meteors came back and one headed for Franklin, who was fishing. Then the game crashed.

Andromeda visits the park and discovers a statue of Storm!

It´s because she made a sentinen Plumbot, ELIZA. Pretty neat.

Franklin fishes on. No meteor this time.

 

Some more random pictures.

 

 

Henry worked out and is suddenly slim.

It´s a weird look for him.

 

 

 

There´s a performer in the middle of nowhere.

I don´t think, she got a lot of tips.

 

 

There are some really intersting sims in this future.

And even a unicorn!

But everyone was whiney and wanted home. So we went.

Again in the sleepwear. Must be regulation.

You can change on the trip. Back home again! Most of them are time-travel sick.

That was interesting. I like the dystopian future a lot more, than the utopian one. Perhaps not so much the meteors.

163 Into the dystopian future

Oh, it´s Randolph and Liam! Hi!

Last week Jan died. Conall is sad.

He will stay at home…

…while the young ones travel to the dystopian future.

Don´t know, why they have to do it in their sleepwear.

Okay, they changed.

It´s kinda gritty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emit welcomes them.

Andromeda gets an opportunity to stop the meteors for a while. She has to play in some junk piles.

Seems like fun.

Fire is shooting randomly out of the ground.

Um, Henry, I don´t know, if this is save.

Henry: Right.

Oh, now it´s hot water. You can bath in those.

Henry: No, thanks.

Andromeda has to eat some bugs.

 

Andromeda: That´s pretty tasty.

OK then.

The next one bit her.

And there´s a meteor impact.

Celia nearly got squashed. As it is, she calmly extinguishes the fire with her magic.

That´s a big one.

It´s getting dark.

 

 

Another meteor. My game doesn´t really likes that, it´s pretty shaky.

And good night.

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.
