171 Djinn

Conall continues to explore the town. He meets Gabby and Catherine. Also a face one paparazzi. She´s a fairy now and much better looking.

I don´t know if vampires should be standing in the sun like that.

Gabby: You´re right about that.

There are Milli and Guadelupe.

And Isolde. She´s pretty good at roller skating.

For some reason the fairy showed up uninvited at the house later.

Perhaps she knew it was Henry´s birthday, even though there was no party.

He opted for shorter hair. I think, it suits him.

There is some private celebrating later.

I kind of neglected Henry´s lifetime wish a bit. He already mastered alchemy, but he has to hit 50 sims with a potion. This is a vial of bliss or something.

This however is a flask of bees.

Henry: I just threw a flask of bees at the emperor of evil.

Henry: He will KILL me!

Nah, don´t worry.

Franklin is unimpressed.

The pool area is awesome by the way.

Henry meets Rowan. He finally is an elder.

At first I just gave him new clothes, but I really do not want him to die.

So Henry throws some fountain of youth at him.

He got reset for some reason.

Henry: What just happened?

No clue. Perhaps the game choking.

But the potion is working!

Much better!

Luke and Celia broke the shower with wohoo. Their reactions were pretty funny.

Celia´s new costume.

Andromeda reached her lifetime wish. She´s a superstar athlete. I hate that suit.

When Eric was a child, he found this dusty old lamp on a school trip. There was never an opportunity to have a djinn, but there´s room in the house now, so…

I hope it´s a woman, because Eric seems to be really straight.

Eric: Whoa, hi there handsome!

What did I just say? (I swear, he only ever flirted with women. The moment the djinn poofed out of the lamp, Eric became totally gaga about him. Well, it all works out in the end.)

He does look awesome.

We don´t really have need for one of the djinn wishes, so we´ll just free him.


Freezing the lamp, heating the lamp…

Going into the mausoleum with it…

Yay, djinn!

Took him into CAS to improve his face-one and tone down the blue a bit, so he doesn´t look as much as a smurf.

His name is Julius Bürgers, he´s adventurous, neat, hopeless romantic, has the photographer´s eye and the green thumb. I like him.

170 Sunlit Tides

Franklin kind of always looks smaller than Andromeda.

They are cute together.


A lot of ghosts out today. Shaoran and Stoutland (I still feel kinda guilty about him).

Beverly and Paul.

But I have to pack them all up, because…

… we are moving to Sunlit Tides! Hidden Springs  was getting a bit laggy and glitchy, so it was time for a new world.

It´s a tropical dream!

Conal does a bit of sight-seeing. Everyone seems to be very relaxed.


We invite a few people over. Dany is chatting with Graciela Grünberg, the wife of Olaf Sato-Orange.

They have a son together, Silvio, who inherited his grandfather Rowan´s hair.

Olaf tends to marry older human women, so this is his first kid.

Still the emperor of evil. He dresses himself, btw.

Conal and Dany dancing together.

Dany´s husband Marco seems to aprove.

Adriana Busch-Espinoza is grumpy. Perhaps she didn´t want to be dragged along.

Adriana: No. I´m always grumpy.

True dat.

Very pretty when she smiles, though.

Ah, it´s like a holiday.



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.
