65 Death at the party

Screenshot-x1847

Pauline does the test for university. Of course, she gets a full scholarship.

Screenshot-x1849

These three have to study a bit more. I don´t want to spend ages at university.

Screenshot-x1850

Liang and Kisa still seem to be very much in love. I plopped the whole extended family in a big house just across the street. Kym does a pool party, so Fiona, Nathan and Joe go, to check things out.

Screenshot-x1851

There even IS a pool!

Screenshot-x1852

But this is not a good way to celebrate a party.

Screenshot-x1853

Joe comes running. Weirdly enough, no one else does. Except our cat Susan, who isn´t even supposed to be there.

Screenshot-x1854

Nathan: I´m see-through! How extraordinaire!

Screenshot-x1856

 

Screenshot-x1857

 

Screenshot-x1858

 

Screenshot-x1860

He goes with dignity. Of course he does!

Screenshot-x1861

 

Screenshot-x1864

Joe is heartbroken. Poor guy.

Screenshot-x1865

 

Screenshot-x1866

Steven is angry.

Screenshot-x1867

And sad.

Screenshot-x1868

Everyone is sad.

Screenshot-x1869

Especially at the sink.

Screenshot-x1870

Fiona: Grampa always used to check it! How can we be sure now, the water isn´t running??

Uhm…

Screenshot-x1871

Joe now has to sleep alone.

Screenshot-x1479

Goodbye, Nathan. You are an awesome sim!

64 Making friends (and enemies)

Screenshot-x1821

We start with the first autonomous repair I ever witnessed in the Sims. He´s not even handy! Well, it was the first and only time. But remarkable nonetheless.

Screenshot-x1822

Shaoran meets the love of his life in the bathroom, as is fitting in the Sims. Her name is Macella Gallgher-Sackholme, she is one of the sims I brought over from Dragon Valley. Her parents are named Gallgher-Mithrilen, so Aine Mithrillen´s genes have to be somewhere in this woman. She´s also SINGLE! Before Shaoran can change that, she runs off, but we will see her again.

Screenshot-x1823

Graduation for Fiona.

Screenshot-x1824

Fiona, Shaoran and Miles go to the library to do some skilling before enrolling to university. Kym and Teagan are there.

Screenshot-x1825

I patched the family tree with MC, so the game recognizes them as Fiona´s parents, but they are only “acquaintances” yet. Fiona is no charmer – left on her own she repells people very quickly.

Screenshot-x1826

So we cheat with some handy elixier.

Screenshot-x1827

BAM! Instant friend!

Screenshot-x1828

Uhm, where´s Teagan?

Screenshot-x1829

Oh, with Miles, who accuses her of cheating.

Screenshot-x1830

Well, I wanted him to ask her to just be friends, but this works, too. Just walk away and nurse your broken heart…

Screenshot-x1831

He turns back and slaps her! Bad Miles!

(That is one interaction I really do not like. Especially if a male sim slaps a female.)

Screenshot-x1832

Luckily, Teagan isn´t someone, who just swallows that.

Teagan: Youuuuuuu…

Miles: What!?

Screenshot-x1833

Shaoran: Hey guys! Just coming through! Nice hat, Teagan!

Teagan: I´m gonna smash you!

Miles: *Gasp*

Screenshot-x1836

Smashing him she does!

Screenshot-x1837

Teagan: This will teach you!

I hope it will!

Screenshot-x1838

Snow Cones in Lunar Lakes are as good as in Dragon Valley and Lucky Palms.

Screenshot-x1839

I bought some of the magical items at the store.

Screenshot-x1840

 

Screenshot-x1841

The animations are pretty cool, but Fiona threw a script error every time she tried to use a spell. ´tis a pity, that.

Screenshot-x1842

Nathan transforms some more fish.

Nathan: I would rather play some computer.

After this four fishies, OK?

Screenshot-x1843

Nathan: Well, then.

Screenshot-x1844

Mostly butterflies. I was hoping for another death fish. Ah, well.

Screenshot-x1846

The three “heirs” in a row.

Fiona: I want to marry some day.

Miles: It´s more likely that you get hit by a falling star!

Shaoran: Guys…

No love lost between Fiona and Miles. But they both like Shaoran.

63 Settling in

Screenshot-x1789

Hot-headed Fiona and grumpy Miles really don´t get along.

Screenshot-x1791

This is the first fight of many.

Screenshot-x1792

Fiona totally kicks his butt.

Screenshot-x1793

He then sends her in time-out for fighting in public or something.

I call that petty.

Screenshot-x1794

Nicely chosen spot, Fiona.

Screenshot-x1795

Counting on your granddad to help you, huh?

Fiona: Sniffle

Nathan couldn´t reach her for some reason, but I sent someone else to let her of the hook, so she could go to school.

Screenshot-x1796

Okay, that toddler is not cute. Actually, she´s quite terrifying. Her name is Irene Su.

Screenshot-x1797

Kisa now has a job in sports for some reason. Here she fawns over some djinn, because of her supernatural-fan trait. You´re a fairy yourself, sweetie!

Kisa: But he´s a real life djinn!

Screenshot-x1798

Nathan does a show to get some new acquaintances.

Screenshot-x1799

Although the audience is not that great.

Screenshot-x1800

But he does his best, as always.

Screenshot-x1801

His lifebar is full. I worry about him.

Screenshot-x1802

Fiona has already rolled her lifetime wish: she wants to become the empress of evil. I never had a non-evil sim with this LTW before. Perhaps she wants to follow her mum´s footsteps. Or annoy her. I decided, she needs some methods of self-defense, if she wants the job.

Fiona: This is stupid!

Screenshot-x1803

Fiona: Ouch!

Perhaps the dummy doesn´t like to be called stupid.

Screenshot-x1804

Fiona: No one saw that!

Well, I did. But I won´t tell anyone. Well, until now, I guess.

Screenshot-x1806

Someone had a marshmallow in the inventory for some reason, so I bought a fire pit. This looks like Nathan is roasting Shaoran, but he´s just lighting the fire, while Shaoran is somehow depressed over the new object.

Screenshot-x1807

Nothing like roasting marshmallows in your bathing suit.

Screenshot-x1808

Miles needs to build up his athletic skill, so he jogs through some pretty part of Lunar lakes.

Screenshot-x1809

Steven still prefers to read after work instead of doing some sport.

Screenshot-x1810

This guy somehow is now a hit movie composer, which means he topped the musical career as well as the education career. He´s a fast learner. Must be all that reading.

Screenshot-x1811

I bought them the chicken coop, because I love the animations. Also, free eggs!

Screenshot-x1813

Pauline has a date with Jovan.

Screenshot-x1814

And it´s Fiona´s young adult birthday!

Screenshot-x1815

Teagan: Haha, you´re getting OLD!

Fiona: Stuff it, mum!

Screenshot-x1816

 

Screenshot-x1818

Wow, you certainly gained some weight in the front area.

Fiona: Shut up. This house is a mess.

She rolls neat.

Actually she´s a face clone of Teagan, but it doesn´t show so much because of her totally different complexion. Speaking of Teagan…

Screenshot-x1819

Miles! No! That´s how she got Kym!

Screenshot-x1820

Miles: I want to marry her!

Absolutely not!

Teagan: This house has the best parties!

Argh.

62 Welcome to Lunar Lakes

Screenshot-x1758

We moved to Lunar Lakes! It seems a bit barren but it grows on you. Well, on me.

Screenshot-x1759

Autonomous fotos. Which is awfully nice of them…

Screenshot-x1760

… because all of the old fotos went blank with the move. That makes me sad.

Screenshot-x1766

Testing the magical currents.

Screenshot-x1776

Pretty impressive, that.

Screenshot-x1765

Nathan´s ice octopus made the move. Fiona did a second one out of wood.

Screenshot-x1768

Hi, Liang! The woman is actually Jovan´s mum, Fiona O´Reilly. I grabbed a few families from Dragon Valley and dropped them into town.

Screenshot-x1769

The parks are a bit weird. I´m not sure, it should rain in there.

Screenshot-x1761

I might be slightly obsessed with this elderly couple.

Screenshot-x1762

 

Screenshot-x1763

They are just so cute!

Screenshot-x1770

Miles grows up the second day after the move.

Screenshot-x1771

He never went to school in Lunar Lakes, so the game doesn´t let me choose the trait. Well, I always roll anyway.

Screenshot-x1772

He´s now ambitous. Could be worse. Actually it´s really convinient, because he wants to become an astronaut. He will have to work a lot.

And wow, he´s seriously ripped.

Screenshot-x1773

Miles: So, now we have to go to university?

Shaoran: Yes! Can´t wait!

I forgot to mention Shaoran´s LTW. It´s major master, so he has to earn three degrees.

Screenshot-x1774

Star and Steven are back in the house. Steven seems happy.

Screenshot-x1775

 

Screenshot-x1777

Does this one look like a model student?

Well, actually… yes?

Screenshot-x1778

It´s graduation day for Miles. You are allowed to look a bit more enthusiastic, you know.

Screenshot-x1779

Yeah, let the graduate, who never drove a car before, transport the whole family. Great idea.

Screenshot-x1780

 

Screenshot-x1781

The rabbit holes are neat.

Screenshot-x1782

But a bit bad for photos. Everyone is standing in one spot.

Screenshot-x1786

Reasons to own Lunar Lakes.

Screenshot-x1787

Wow.

Screenshot-x1788

61 Last days in Dragon Valley

Screenshot-x1714

The ballet-thingies were on sale at the store.

Apropos, if anyone is interested, I uploaded Kisa, Pauline, Kym and Jovan O´Reilly to the exchange. No Teagan or Liang, ´cause they are EA-sims.

Screenshot-x1715

No one tried autonomously, so I forced Fiona to do some ballet.

Fiona: I look like a dork!

You do not! You are totally cute! Don´t you want to be a prima ballerina?

Screenshot-x1716

Fiona: You are totally sexist and I´m stopping now.

She did. I enrolled her for the school ballet.

Fiona: What??

Screenshot-x1718

Nathan repairs the hot tub with magic, because cool effects.

Screenshot-x1721

Joe reads a good night story to Fiona.

Screenshot-x1722

It doesn´t work.

Fiona: I´m tired, though.

Joe: I´m outta here.

Screenshot-x1723

Well, this is no ISBI. I can tell her to sleep.

Screenshot-x1724

Teagan breezes through the criminal career ranks.

Screenshot-x1725

Teagan: I´m awesome!

You are!

Screenshot-x1726

Chaos in the morning…

Screenshot-x1731

… birthdays in the evening.

Screenshot-x1732

Shaoran embraces his chinese heritage.

And he rolls childish.

Screenshot-x1733

The second cake is for Fiona.

Screenshot-x1734

Miles and his Dad Jovan. They kinda look very much alike and kinda not.

Screenshot-x1735

Fiona: I´m much more excited this time!

Screenshot-x1736

Wow. She´s pretty. I think.

And another equestrian.

Fiona: I want a horse.

We have no room, sorry.

Screenshot-x1737

Shaoran glitches a bit and celebrates a bit longer.

Pauline: I´m tired! Stop this!

Shaoran: Toooooooooooooot!

Or it´s his childish trait? I didn´t need to reset him, just cancel the action.

Screenshot-x1739

By the way, this is Kym.

Screenshot-x1740

This is also Kym.

Screenshot-x1741

And this!

But he doesn´t like his bot-form. As soon as he transforms, he rolls the wish to return to human form. I really can´t imagine, why.

Screenshot-x1742

I wanted to marry Kym and Teagan before they moved out, but Teagan wasn´t having it.

Screenshot-x1743

I will miss them! Teagan is a hoot, and Kym a really nice sim.

Screenshot-x1746

Fiona: Move them out already! Mom is blocking the sink!

Kym: Fiona! Don´t talk like that about your mother!

Teagan and Fiona are actually good friends, despite Teagan´s disliking children trait.

Screenshot-x1747

Nathan has a lot of time on his hands.

Screenshot-x1748

He makes this octopus… thing.

Screenshot-x1749

Pretty!

Screenshot-x1751

And of course, there´s always time for Joe.

Screenshot-x1753

A bit of dancing, before we are moving…

Screenshot-x1754

… because we have to leave Dragon Valley, due to massive lag.

60 Ghost stories

Screenshot-x1674

Fiona: Is this person allowed to hold me?

Relax, sweetie, he´s a professional. He´s also your… no, you´re actually not related at all. But he´s a nice sim.

Screenshot-x1675

Fiona: Okay, then.

Screenshot-x1676

It´s Fiona´s birthday!

Screenshot-x1677

This girl, who wasn´t invited, is totally smitten with Kym. I think, it´s the stylist thing.

Screenshot-x1679

Teagan, for all her evil, mean-spirited way, loves him, too.

Screenshot-x1680

Fiona: Don´t wanna!

Sorry, you have to!

Screenshot-x1683

 

Screenshot-x1685

OK, I see your concern.

Fiona: My f**ing eyes are broken!

She rolls hot-headed.

Screenshot-x1686

Teagan continues to insult people. Even friendly Joe doesn´t like her.

Screenshot-x1688

I didn´t want another party, so Miles has to grow up on his own the following night.

Screenshot-x1689

He rolls irresistable. Combined with grumpy, this could be fun.

Screenshot-x1690

Miles: Heeeeeey, there!

Ugh. Restrain yourself, please.

Screenshot-x1691

And you two, don´t look at each other that way! You´re… second cousins. Just because the game can´t keep up after “cousin”, doesn´t mean you´re not related!

Well, it would be legal. But not what I have planned for this legacy.

Screenshot-x1692

Vi is being melodramatic.

Screenshot-x1693

Star and Steven live in Teagan´s house at the moment, together with her dog, which has the cutest ears ever.

Screenshot-x1696

The house is fun. Evil Teagan used to live there with her good sister Shannon.

Screenshot-x1697

I probably should have made those pictures at daytime.

Screenshot-x1694

There was a prom and Miles gained a romantic interest. I didn´t write down her name.

Anyway, they are having a date in the park.

Ghost stories. So romantic!

Screenshot-x1695

She´s cute!

Screenshot-x1698

Teagan gets arrested.

Screenshot-x1701

The best ghost stories are told by ghosts, though.

Screenshot-x1702

Right? Right.

Screenshot-x1704

Those two wanted to become bff. Which is totally better than something else.

Screenshot-x1705

WILL you stop with the staring!

Screenshot-x1707

Just a typical evening.

Screenshot-x1708

I changed Fiona´s hair. Actually, she now has different hair for each outfit.

Screenshot-x1709

Awesome Nathan.

Screenshot-x1710

I don´t know, what he´s reading, but it doesn´t seem inappropriate for a child at least.

Screenshot-x1711

 

Screenshot-x1712

Nighty night!

Screenshot-x1713

59 Fitness

Screenshot-x1632

Nathan is still pretty fit.

Screenshot-x1634

Another case of successful nighttime story. I found out, that if the children ask autonomously, is mostly fails, but if I let the adults offer, it works. Even if that´s not his bed. Well.

Still don´t know, where Pauline got that outfit.

Screenshot-x1635

For all her problems with humans (well, sims), Teagan loves the cats.

That´s her work-out outfit, by the way. In her case, I didn´t change any of the outfits she had. She´s that kind of sim.

Screenshot-x1636

Loving grandpa.

Screenshot-x1637

 

Screenshot-x1638

Little Fiona really has a weird face. Still cute, though.

Screenshot-x1639

Shaoran invites one of his classmates to play. She arrives as a teen. They play tag anyway.

Screenshot-x1640

Teagan was retired and hadn´t fullfilled her lifetime wish, when she moved in. Now that she´s young again, I let her give it another shot.

Screenshot-x1641

Paul hangs around a lot more often than Violetta.

Screenshot-x1643

And he still loves to cook. I don´t mind.

Screenshot-x1644

Fiona never lacks attention.

Screenshot-x1645

But Shaoran has to grow up in the snow. I´m sorry!

Screenshot-x1646

He rolls bookworm. I´m afraid, he inherited his father´s slightly worried look.

Screenshot-x1648

Miles wished for a slumber party. I´ve never done that before, so…

Screenshot-x1649

It even works!

Screenshot-x1650

Kym joins out of solidarity.

(I wasn´t sure how this thing worked, so I provided sleeping bags. Turns out, the kids bring their own.)

Screenshot-x1651

Shaoran eats with chopsticks! I never noticed before. Bad simmer!

Screenshot-x1652

Fiona: Who are you?

Poor Kym is always all around town to improve the stylishness of the townies. Fiona is mostly cared for by his dads. And Teagan, if she decides to be bothered.

Screenshot-x1653

But his daughter doesn´t hold a grudge.

He teaches her to walk after this.

Screenshot-x1655

It´s snowflake day! Aw, Liang got old!

Screenshot-x1658

 

Screenshot-x1659

 

Screenshot-x1660

These two seem still to be very much in love.

Screenshot-x1665

Yep, pretty fit.

Screenshot-x1666

I read somewhere, that sims can wohoo in the box.

Screenshot-x1668

So…

Screenshot-x1669

It obviously wasn´t as much fun as the wardrobe.

Screenshot-x1670

This is a bad shot of Kym reaching his Lifetime wish. I wasn´t expecting it so soon – the stylist career kind of glitched out, he couldn´t take any photos and his portfolio was only at 57 % or something.

Anyway, he´s now a fashion phenomenon!

Screenshot-x1671

I always think, I have to work on that lighting. Then I forget.

Screenshot-x1672

Don´t drown, Nathan!

Screenshot-x1673

Of course, he doesn´t! He´s the best! I luv him!

58 Don´t eat the baby!

Screenshot-x1602

Teagan complains about Miles. She likes to do that right within his earshot.

Screenshot-x1603

Joe: Don´t you think, you should be a bit nicer to the kids, now that you are getting one of your own?

Teagan: Huh?

Screenshot-x1604

Great place to play with your doll, Miles. At least it´s not directly in front of the toilet. Which was made by Violetta, by the way. I don´t know, if a toilet out of clay is a good idea, but someone upgraded it to selfcleaning. All of my sims get the “steel bladder” LTR as soon as they can scrape the points together, so it doesn´t get much use anyway.

Screenshot-x1605

Teagan, don´t scare Nathan! He´s an old man!

Teagen: Your point?

She´s a hoot, really.

Screenshot-x1606

Oh, baby!

Screenshot-x1607

Teagan: It´s… it´s ALIVE!

Screenshot-x1608

Teagan: It´s making unpleasant noises. Can I eat it now?

NO, you cannot!

Little Fiona rolled artistic and clumsy. This is the generation of clumsiness.

Screenshot-x1609

Shaoran and Miles go trick-or-treating. They don´t bother to wear costumes.

Screenshot-x1610

And they get distracted fast.

Screenshot-x1611

Pauline presents: The flying noboo!

Screenshot-x1612

Now she reenacts the lion king.

Screenshot-x1613

They sorted themselves out. Phew.

Screenshot-x1615

Teagan: You sure, I can´t eat it? It looks tasty.

No.

Screenshot-x1616

Teagan: Pity. Hey, it´s not half bad, when it isn´t screaming.

Children hating, evil sim is always the first to tend to the baby´s needs. Go figure.

Screenshot-x1614

Miles skipps school and gets an earfull from Kym.

Screenshot-x1617

I didn´t realize until later, but the poor boy was glitching badly – he cancelled every action after a few seconds, so he couldn´t eat, sleep or really do anything at all. Reseting him didn´t work, so I moved him out in edit town (with some adult), moved him directly back again, and he was OK. Don´t know, what that was about.

Screenshot-x1618

Teagan has the closest relationship to her daughter.

Teagan: You made me do this!

I so totally didn´t direct you to do anything with Fiona!

Screenshot-x1619

Teagan: Whatever, it should better grow up now. My arms are getting tired.

Screenshot-x1620

Teagan: Oops, where did it go?

Screenshot-x1621

There she is! Um, I don´t know, if she´s cute or a bit scary looking. I go with cute, because toddlers are always cute.

Screenshot-x1622

And Kym has his adult birthday!

Screenshot-x1623

 

Screenshot-x1626

No midlife-crisis.

Kym: I´m too stylish for a midlife-crisis.

Indeed, you are.

Screenshot-x1627

But I´m not sure about Pauline. Although Jovan doesn´t seem to mind the trousers.

Screenshot-x1628

Fiona: Mmmmmmh….

You like Mr. Green, sweetie?

Screenshot-x1629

Fiona: Yum!

Screenshot-x1630

Fiona: Grrrrrrr!

She seems to think, she´s a werewolf. I need one of those…

Screenshot-x1631

Steven really doesn´t like living somewhere else. He stays till morning, playing the guitare. I send him home, don´t want him to freeze to death.
