82 Even more university

screenshot-x2411

Macella: Sooo… you are going to university again?

Shaoran: Jep.

screenshot-x2412

Macella: Well, you´ll better have fun!

Shaoran: I will!

screenshot-x2413

And off they go!

Shaoran thinks of Macella, while Macella thinks of Miles. Tsk, tsk.

screenshot-x2414

 

screenshot-x2415a

That´s a lot of snow!

screenshot-x2416

And we are greeted by a meterological unlikely rainbow. Still pretty.

screenshot-x2417

First thing Randolph does, is light the fire and warm his butt.

screenshot-x2418

University somehow plays havoc with people´s relationships.

screenshot-x2419

Randolph: You know, I´ve never looked at you this way, but…

Cathy: Don´t you have a girlfriend at home?

screenshot-x2420

They look good. Nice lighting.

screenshot-x2421

Shaoran: So, let´s start!

Good boy! … wait… you are not studying art this time!

screenshot-x2422

Shaoran: OK, this better?

Uhm, no, you already have that major.

screenshot-x2423

Shaoran: Screw this, I´m playing videogames!

Hey!

screenshot-x2424

Shaoran: Hehe!

… he´s studying physical education this time.

screenshot-x2425

Cathy does communications.

screenshot-x2429

I thought, they needed a baskedball court. And it was on sale.

screenshot-x2430

Randolph texts Connie. Ain´t he cute?

screenshot-x2432

He studies fine arts.

Although both he and Catherine won´t get diplomas – I just don´t have the nerve to do another week at university. I love all the stuff the pack gives you – the clothes, hair, objects, interactions – but I just think attending university with your sim is beyond boring.

screenshot-x2433

I wait for the guys to finish their lessons when this young lady decides to destroy a snowman.

screenshot-x2434

This woman is judging her. Harshly.

screenshot-x2435

She watches her the whole time.

screenshot-x2436

Shaoran decides it´s a good idea to relieve his stress by meditating in the deep snow.

screenshot-x2437

Randolph crashes on a sofa at a party. The other students are making fun of him, but I think, they are just jealous.

screenshot-x2438

And here we have Shaoran reaching his lifetime wish. I thought, it would happen after the ceromony, so I missed the shot.

screenshot-x2439

I somehow have no picture of Catherine getting her letter.

screenshot-x2440

 

screenshot-x2441

Shaoran: So… I´m done?

You´re done! You can do whatever you want now.

Shaoran: I´ll think of something.

screenshot-x2442

He´s so happy!

screenshot-x2443

Shaoran: I decide… I want to play with the plush dragon!

screenshot-x2444

You do you, Shaoran!

screenshot-x2445

And we are home again!

screenshot-x2446

Macella seems to be very happy to have him back!

81 Fiery birthday

screenshot-x2384

I got a motive mobile with Shaoran´s happyness points. Wow, it´s ugly.

Motive mobile: Hey!

screenshot-x2385

Watching the photos makes me nostalgic. And we even lost the oldest ones in the move.

screenshot-x2386

Amber and Jaron are wohoohing in our bed. Must be a party.

screenshot-x2387

WHO SET THE SINK ON FIRE??

Jovan: … um… me?

screenshot-x2388

I think Jovan ate some chili and breathed fire after washing up his plate. We have cake, you know?!

screenshot-x2389

I was a bit annoyed and just let them run around screaming, to see what would happen.

What happend was the COOLEST SIM EVAR!

screenshot-x2390

Fiona: Out.Of.My.Way.

screenshot-x2391

Fiona: No? Ok, just casting the spell through you then.

screenshot-x2392

Doesn´t she look totally awesome?

screenshot-x2393

She kills the fire with an ice blast.

screenshot-x2394

Fiona: Maroons.

Right you are. At this point I begin sending the family AWAY, but they keep coming back!

screenshot-x2395

The sink isn´t burning anymore, but now the pizza oven is on fire. And those sims are blocking the way.

screenshot-x2396

Ok, finally someone finds a fire extinguisher.

screenshot-x2397

Rowan is brave! I really would like to have him in this legacy, but the only remotly interested in him was Pauline, when she was already an elder.

And he keeps marrying elders, so no kids!

screenshot-x2398

Jovan: THIS PARTY SUCKS!

Well, you suck!

screenshot-x2399

At this point I got a bit nervous.

screenshot-x2400

Fiona and Rowan manage to quench the flames. The fire fighter does nothing!

screenshot-x2401

Jovan, you are still on fire!

screenshot-x2402

Fiona doesn´t seem to care anymore, but Rowan saves the day!

Kym: I should have worn the other suit. Now this one reeks of smoke!

screenshot-x2403

After that, most people leave, so they miss the cake!

screenshot-x2407

Vampire birthday!

screenshot-x2408

Catherine rolls angler. Her lifetime wish is news anchor.

screenshot-x2409

Randolph: Should we have gotten you flowers? I mean, because the cake doesn´t do anything for you anymore…

Catherine: Still tastes good!

screenshot-x2410

The sink and kitchen counter are a total loss, but the pizza oven is not damaged. And no one died.

80 Evil gnome

screenshot-x2352

Soon, Shaoran, OK? I want Randolph and Catherine to come with you to university.

screenshot-x2353

Looking good!

screenshot-x2355

Randolph really has a weird face.

screenshot-x2356

I kind of want to put make-up on it. Maybe later.

screenshot-x2357

Catherine shows her mum her vampire teeth.

screenshot-x2358

Beverly´s only sign of evil so far is her obsession with the little drum.

screenshot-x2359

It´s a baby gnome!

screenshot-x2360

And an evil gnome. I totally freaks me out! *sells*

screenshot-x2361

Shaoran and Miles friendship got a bit low, so I had them spent some time with each other.

screenshot-x2362

Miles irresistable trait is kind of a bother, really. The poor guy is never alone! Sometimes he´s starving, exhausted and stinky and just can´t meet his needs, because everyone wants to interact with him! I have to sent him to our graveyard lot like this, to get a bit of peace.

screenshot-x2363

Macella made a toy at the inventing table. Beverly loves it! It even moves its fins!

screenshot-x2364

Randolph reminds me, that he´s a witch.

screenshot-x2365

Some last time cuddling with the toddler…

screenshot-x2367

… because it´s her birthday!

screenshot-x2368

Small party. No idea, wh0´s that guy on the right.

screenshot-x2369

Um… no. I´m all for forfeiting gender stereotypes and stuff, but this looks just bad. And it´s her formal wear, no less!

screenshot-x2370

How about this?

Beverly: Meh.

Okay then.

She rolls frugal.

screenshot-x2380

I gave her a baseball cap for her everyday outfit.

screenshot-x2381

I love how the flame lights up the frosted window!

And hey, it´s Joe! And Violetta with Sybil! Good thing ghosts don´t get cold!

screenshot-x2377

Another birthday. Randolph grows up!

screenshot-x2378

He rolls green thumb. And you can´t see it very good in this picture, but he inherited all of his dad´s body hair! Which is a lot. It was black, but I changed it to his hair colour.

screenshot-x2379

He does the test for university. Could be better, but he has a bit more time, until Cathy grows up.

screenshot-x2382

Still a witch?

screenshot-x2383

Nice!

We are saving lifetime points for the magic hands. His lifetime wish is magic healer, so they are a must, I say!

79 There was a prom somewhere

screenshot-x2326

Don´t know what happened to Cathy. I guess it was the chemistry table.

screenshot-x2329

Being the baby in the house, Beverly get´s a lot of love from everyone.

screenshot-x2328

There was a prom. I didn´t expext Randolph to wear his formal, but what happened to yours, Cathy?

Catherine: … the limo was late. So we went here by bike.

And?

Catherine: Actually, I don´t want to talk about it.

OK.

I think there went something wrong because Randolph asked Connie to go with him to prom. She arrived at the house, but there was no limo, so I sent them on their own, and they didn´t change their clothes. Connie stayed at the house, but had a fabulous time at the prom with Randolph nontheless.

Catherine: I didn´t! I fell flat on my face! Perhaps if I also stayed at home, I would have become prom queen!

Sorry, dear.

screenshot-x2330

Macella starts to work on her LTW. There´s an accident.

Macella: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I´m on fire!

I waited to see, if she would run to the shower herself. She didn´t.

screenshot-x2331

So I made her. Stupid sims.

screenshot-x2332

Randolph: That´s a magnificent picture.

Uhm… you don´t notice anything weird?

Macella: *sizzle*

Randolph: No, why?

No reason. Stupid question, really.

Macella repeatable sets herself on fire. At this rate, she´ll never reach her LTW.

screenshot-x2333

Shaoran draws Miles.

Shaoran: Your hair looks a bit like a brush…

Miles: Huh?

screenshot-x2334

Shaoran: Now both arms in the air please…

screenshot-x2335

Shaoran: OK, perhaps I should have used the easel…

Miles: Are you kidding me??

Shaoran: Perhaps…

screenshot-x2336

Miles: Are we finished yet??

Shaoran: A good picture takes time, I mean, think of the Mona Lisa…

screenshot-x2337

Shaoran: Well?

screenshot-x2338

Miles: … This looks nothing like me, but I like it!

screenshot-x2339

This kind of turns into a berry-legacy, but that´s OK.

screenshot-x2340

Someone suggested Shaoran should have a bachelor party. The groom is thrilled.

screenshot-x2341

And I don´t really know what happend to Jaron.

screenshot-x2342

I kind of treated this like every other party and just invited a bunch of people.

screenshot-x2343

Including this lovebirds.

Macella: They are blocking the bed! I want to wohoo with my fiancé!

Amber: Dear, you look ridiculous!

screenshot-x2344

Jaron: This better?

Amber: Much better, handsome!

Macella: Want to find another bed?

Shaoran: Uhhh… this is so embarassing!

screenshot-x2346

The other guests meet at the bar.

Randolph: Hehehe, juice!

Gabby: Urgh, Fiona!

screenshot-x2347

Fiona: …her outfit kind of resembles mine…

Gabby: Uhh…

screenshot-x2348

Gabby: Who are all these people?

Just some random guests and family, chatting with the strippers dancers, or themselves, ominous puddles and clothing on the floor, underage drinking, and… Oh, f***, can somone put the toddler to bed??

Fiona: So, how do you stay so slim? Lots of vegetables?

screenshot-x2349

Carly tries mixing.

Jaron: Let me!

screenshot-x2350

Carly: I´ve got this!

Jaron: No, you don´t! What are you doing??

screenshot-x2351

Carly: Phew, he´s gone! Better look this one up on the cooking chanel!

Uhm, I don´t think you can learn mixology that way.

Carly: You can´t??

I like her.

Nothing really interesting happened after this, and/or I took no more photos. One or the other.

78 Someone answer that door!

screenshot-x2299

I think we have a serious case of tctbe here.

screenshot-x2300

This one was a total riddle for me – he just sat down to do his homework, and when I looked again after two seconds, he had fried himself. I just couldn´t figure out what had happend, until blamsart mentioned it in her blog here

It happens when a witch does her/his homework with magic! Who would have thought?

screenshot-x2303

It´s Catherine´s birthday already!

screenshot-x2304

 

screenshot-x2305

You do love your hats. But it´s still pretty warm outside.

Catherine: Dolly seems to be cold!

He´s insane! And don´t call him that!

screenshot-x2306

Now eat your cake!

Catherine: Mph.

screenshot-x2307

Amber chooses this moment to die. Well, she´s way beyond 200 now, I guess it´s time.

screenshot-x2310

At least I don´t have to make a trip to the graveyard to collect her tombstone…

screenshot-x2311

Oh, and the creepy Llama is there.

screenshot-x2312

Amber: This party sucks.

Hey, not our fault! But I guess, I can relate.

screenshot-x2313

Amber: But look, what I´ve got here!

Everyone: Someone´s at the door!

… yeah. I gave her that flower when she moved out.

screenshot-x2314

Macella and Abby: This is so sad! But door!

Grim: …

screenshot-x2315

Amber: So, you gonna take that?

screenshot-x2316

Grim: … I GUESS. CAN SOMEONE ANSWER THE DOOR?

Amber: Party sucks.

Everyone: DOOOOOOR!

!@*% Llama!

screenshot-x2317

And there she is again!

screenshot-x2318

She forgets, she´s alive for a moment.

Jovan: Why does no one answer the door??

Jaron: Seriously, dude, don´t you have other problems?? I thought I lost my wife here!

screenshot-x2319

Everyone seems to be a bit confused after this. Oh. Makeover for the woman on the left.

screenshot-x2320

Much better. That´s Carly Benton. She looks like she runs a lot.

screenshot-x2321

Those two are the cutest.

screenshot-x2322

They left the party, but then stayed outside for hours, making out and watching the stars.

screenshot-x2325

 

screenshot-x2323

I guess, they were really happy to not have lost each other.

screenshot-x2324

77 Instant attraction

screenshot-x2263

Last time Pauline and Star died, so there are two free slots in the house.

And here we have Macella Gallgher-Sackholme. Well, actually, that´s Gallgher-Sack, but I think that´s because the rest of the letters doesn´t fit. She was born in Dragon Valley and I dragged her family into Lunar Lakes to have some familiar faces running around. Her fatherless son is grown up now and she´s already an adult. Her traits are perfectionist, loser, excitable, eccentric and athletic.

screenshot-x2264

She wants to become a monster maker, but I don´t know, if that will be possible in the remaining time. She has zero skill points at inventing.

screenshot-x2265

Macella: That was quick.

Well, we have kind of a tight schedule here.

screenshot-x2266

She instantly tells Miles.

Wait.

Shouldn´t you be telling that someone else?

screenshot-x2267

Gabby: What are you doing with that other woman??

Miles: Nothing! There never was anyone else but you!

screenshot-x2268

Shaoran: Oh? Could´ve fooled me.

(There really isn´t. People just constantly swarm him because of the irresistable trait. He then snarls at them, because he´s grumpy.)

screenshot-x2269

Macella then tells her boyfriend. Well, I made her.

screenshot-x2270

Macella: So… We need to buy baby shoes.

Shaoran: Really??

*Instantly rolls wish to marry her*

screenshot-x2271

We can do that. Proposing, at least.

screenshot-x2272

He dropped the box, but I missed the shot.

screenshot-x2274

Okay, we could have picked a better spot. At least Macella chose nice pregnancy clothes.

screenshot-x2275

 

screenshot-x2276

This one is just too cute.

screenshot-x2278

As is this one.

screenshot-x2282

That´s the only reason, I bought them the chicken coop.

screenshot-x2283

Macella does the only athletic activity pregnant sims are allowed to do.

screenshot-x2284

Perhaps I should have given Fiona something turquoise to wear.

Fiona: Not my style. I match the sofa.

True, dat.

screenshot-x2285

Oh, hey, Star!

screenshot-x2286

And baby time!

screenshot-x2287

For a woman in labour, Macella seems unusually happy to see the father of the child.

Macella: Shaoran! How nice, that you are here!

Shaoran: You can´t give birth in front of the china gnome! He´s very sensitive!

screenshot-x2288

She does it anyway. Best birthing shot ever!

screenshot-x2289

Shaoran: Yay! My baby!

Beverly rolls evil and slob. What a delightfull combination. She´s also pink.

screenshot-x2286a

In other news, Gabby reached her lifetime wish of culinary librarian with this omelets.

Gabby: I can´t even eat them.

Don´t worry, there are enough hungry mouths in this house to feed.

screenshot-x2290

And I kind of missed Randolph´s birthday.

screenshot-x2354

Randolph: That´s not nice! I thought you liked me!

I do! Just got a bit distracted by the pink baby. You will totally be in the spotlight right now.

He rolls lucky, by the way.

screenshot-x2291

This is Beverly´s birthday party. I invited a schoolmate of Catherine, Connie Ansari, who kind of grew up on the way. This is after her makeover. Her face is… interesting.

She´s evil, hot-headed, eccentric and excitable, and the moment she steps on the lot, Randolph is head over heals for her.

Randolph: *rolls every possible wish from pillow-fighting to moving in with her*

What is it with my guys and evil sims??

screenshot-x2292

But she seems equally eager.

screenshot-x2293

First kiss.

screenshot-x2294

And she´s his girlfriend. That never happened so quickly before.

screenshot-x2295

Macella: Um, can we, like, have a birthday here? The watcher is so flabbergasted, she forgot to move my plumbob.

Connie and Randolph: Busy, lol.

screenshot-x2297

Everyone and plumbob: Yay, birthday!

screenshot-x2298

She´s got a pretty strong jaw going on there, but otherwise, totally cute!

76 Swimming in the air

screenshot-x2208

This is autonomous. I love it, if my sims do these things.

screenshot-x2209

And here we have the empress of evil reading her son to sleep.

screenshot-x2210

With a children-appropriate book.

screenshot-x2211

So cute!

screenshot-x2213

As is this.

screenshot-x2214

And this!

screenshot-x2215

Stop it, already!

screenshot-x2218

The indian clothes were on sale. Fiona looks awesome!

screenshot-x2219

And we have people violating the bedrooms. Must be a party.

screenshot-x2220

Here´s Eddy. I actually moved him out, as soon as Randolph grew up to a child, because he´s really boring.

screenshot-x2221

He adopted two giant dogs. This is Gulliver.

Susan: … don´t even think about it!

screenshot-x2222

The birthday girl doesn´t seem to be in a hurry to grow up.

screenshot-x2223

I made Susan sniff him.

Susan: This is animal abuse!

screenshot-x2224

Those two never stop.

screenshot-x2225

Cake!

screenshot-x2226

 

screenshot-x2227

Catherine: I like the hat.

Yeah, but I´m not sure about the coat. It´s summer.

screenshot-x2228

Catherine: That´s nice, but where´s my hat??

With your formal clothes. I think.

She rolls cat person.

screenshot-x2229

I like her nightgown.

Cathrine: That´s so chliché!

But it suits you!

screenshot-x2231

Pauline´s lifebar is full and her mum is still alive. I think she´s glitched. And this picture is just creepy.

Star: Snake!

screenshot-x2233

Shaoran took Catherine and Randolph flying.

screenshot-x2234

Jk, the pool didn´t render.

Shaoran: Do you like the water?

Randolph: NO! Something is dragging me down!

Catherine: That would be your winter clothes, doofus.

screenshot-x2235

He retreats to safety and reads a book.

screenshot-x2237

Here we have some grandchild-grandma bonding.

screenshot-x2238

Pauline: Should we go inside the house?

Catherine: Nah, I´m good. Will you make your move already??

screenshot-x2248

Someone bought this guy at the festival.

screenshot-x2240

I searched for Randolph and found him still at school, chatting about his mom with someone. His bathing suit is actually a good choice in this rain.

screenshot-x2241

And in the evening…

screenshot-x2242

Pauline: I didn´t finish my game!

screenshot-x2245

Pauline: Can I please just finish my chess match?

Grim: NO.

screenshot-x2246

Pauline: Drat.

screenshot-x2250

Yeah, Star, your daughter just died of old age, and you are still around.

screenshot-x2251

So I triggered her age transition when she reached 200 days. I´m playing with 128 days now. This is ridiculous.

Still feel like a murderer, though.

screenshot-x2252

 

screenshot-x2255

I would have totally quit without saving, if she had begged for her life. But she seems to be cool with it.

screenshot-x2258

Surprisingly, Fiona seems to be the most upset.

screenshot-x2259

She also gets Star´s inventory.

screenshot-x2260

Oh, hey, Pauline.

screenshot-x2261

And she finishes her game!

screenshot-x2262

Pauline: You could play with Fiona now.

Catherine: Puleeze, she totally sucks!

screenshot-x1312

Goodbye, both of you!

screenshot-x436

75 A smooth wedding

Screenshot-x2186

Those two both have the wish to marry AND to marry each other.

Screenshot-x2187

So let´s do this, shall we?

Screenshot-x2188

(Please ignore the phone and Gabby burning up. I always miscalculate the time she can stay outside. She will get a potion for the wedding.)

Screenshot-x2189

Outside wedding because routing. And scenery.

Screenshot-x2190

Unrendered scenery.

Screenshot-x2191

This is better. Even if the guest are not sitting down.

Except Jaron. I love Jaron.

Screenshot-x2192

 

Screenshot-x2193

They are really cute together.

Screenshot-x2194

 

Screenshot-x2195

 

Screenshot-x2196

And now the cake!

Screenshot-x2197

 

Screenshot-x2200

Randolph: CAKE!

Uhm… have some?

Screenshot-x2201

Teagan got old. Nice dress, dear.

Pauline: It´s hideous!

Teagan: Shut up.

She actually scares me a bit. I would never dare to change her choice of clothes.

Screenshot-x2202

Jovan: Soooo… wedding, mh?

Pauline: Nah, not for me.

She never wished for a wedding. Although she rolls a lot of wishes for Jovan, whenever she sees him.

Screenshot-x2203

So NOW you are sitting down. Enjoy your cake.

All in all it was a really smooth wedding. No one even got stuck while throwing rice.

Screenshot-x2205

This is what the newlyweds do on free will, after all the guest are gone.

Screenshot-x2206

Okay, let´s stop this sappy stuff right here.

Screenshot-x2207

74 Spellcasting duel

Screenshot-x2158

Okay, no more clicking on Miles stressed-out moodlet. He doesn´t even have the “attractive company” moodlet under normal circumstances, but as soon as he´s stressed he´s all about making babies with his second cousin.

Screenshot-x2159

They would have made a cute couple, though.

Screenshot-x2160

Miles reached his lifetimewish by the way – he´s now an astronaut.

Screenshot-x2161

And Catherine grew up. I think she´s got her grandpa Jovan´s hair.

Screenshot-x2162

Randolph loves to preside over his royal court, like his great-grandpa Nathan. Speaking of…

Screenshot-x2163

He´s a ghost but still a witch! Is this a glitch? It´s cool!

Screenshot-x2164

The only difference is, that he´s now using a wand instead of his hands.

Screenshot-x2165

Talking about witchcraft.

Screenshot-x2166

Fiona on the other hand prefers to start a duel.

Screenshot-x2167

Nathan loses. Must be the crappy wand.

Screenshot-x2168

 

Screenshot-x2169

Cute child-toddler-cat spam.

Screenshot-x2170

Cathrine: Wait for me Suzie!

Susan: In your dreams, runt.

Screenshot-x2171

More spam.

Screenshot-x2172

I misclicked and sent Pauline on a date with Jaron.

Screenshot-x2173

After rejecting his flowers, they have a nice chat.

Screenshot-x2174

Pauline boasts with her grandchild.

Screenshot-x2175

And here she speaks about Catherine´s hidden trait “can salute” (because Miles is in the military). Never seen that before.

Screenshot-x2176

I had to move the ghosts out – they were out all day and everyone dropped their action queues, because they had to react to them. So I made a little lot next to the house, bought it and made a ghost playground.

Screenshot-x2177

Randolph is always busy playing.

Screenshot-x2178

He actually seems to be able to spy something.

Screenshot-x2180

Everyone loves Shaoran.

Screenshot-x2181

He makes a wine rack. Or something.

Screenshot-x2182

This was a fun date. They kept standing on different levels.

Screenshot-x2184

Fiona reaches her LTW. She´s now empress of evil!

Screenshot-x2185

I just don´t know who the other glowing guy is. Did she kick him out? And what happened to Teagan? Perhaps she´s already retired.
