Greeting fellow earthlings, I hope you all had a very happy Christmas (if you celebrate it that is). This post was actually meant to be posted before Christmas but I didn’t have time to write it out ‘cause my mum’s in the hospital and I’m having to help out with my younger sisters. On the plus side my littlest sister is being born tomorrow morning to that’s good. Anyway, onto the actual Sims stuff.
Since it’s been so long since I last posted (not really but it feels that way for me) I decided that I should just get the heir poll results out of the way. As you can see Cai won by a landslide. I’m a little sad Dahlia or Elijah didn’t win but I think Cai will be fun to play. If you’re on tumblr you might’ve already known Cai was heir since she and her future spouse have applied to adopt on Babysweetadoptions, which means after this chapter there will be another break until I find out whether they are accepted or not.
Dahlia continues to make me proud by getting on the honor roll. +5
Envy: Scrub, scrub, scrub, all the livelong day
Milo: I’m gonna splash her
Don’t you dare!
How’s life treating you my precious baby?
Elijah: It’ll be much better when I’m out of here
How’s it feel to be the new heiress Princess?
Cai: It’s nothing less than I deserve
Elijah: *coughack* I can’t believe you’re handing this legacy over to her!
Poor little lonesome Milo. I really need to find a mate for him.
Once again Elijah’s only friend happens to be the dog.
E: Come here Milo. You have to like me, I slathered my hand in bacon bits!
Cai: I think when I takeover I’m gonna pack you off to the moon.
Cai: Do you think I could set mum on fire and get rid of her that way?
Clara: She’s already dead, idiot!
Cai *to self* You’re next on my list now
Dahlia: …and then she threatened to set mum on fire, it was terrible
Ayden: Don’t worry ‘Lia, I’ll speak to her
Yeah right, Cai’s got you wrapped around her little finger. She can get away with anything.
It’s nice to see these two can still make time for each other.
Rylee has her first haunting since she died. It’s been so long that I didn’t think she’d ever come out.
Mags came out to greet the other cat but she tripped before she could.
Rylee: Little kitten take care of the family for me
Mags: I can’t even get back up how can I manage that?
Elijah uses this thing almost compulsively now.
Elijah: Must get stronger and impress dad.
And what is Ayden doing whilst his youngest is trying to impress him? Completely ignoring Elijah’s efforts and playing chess with his other son, of course.
Cai: Bwahaha, Come here my precious! If this keeps up I’ll have an army of ghost pets at my disposal!
Yeah, uh, good luck with that plan.
Dahlia is the first (I think) to find and use the basketball court. She was actually pretty good at it too.
After playing outside all day Dahlia comes in for a shower but before she can Clara interrupts her.
Clara: I should’ve been heir, don’t you think so Dahlia?
Dahlia: This conversation is so boring *yawn*
Clara: That’s a bit of an overreaction isn’t it?
Dahlia *to self* Maybe if I pretend I’m dead she’ll go away.
This wasn’t actually a pass out fail btw, Clara bored her and then she fainted.
Is that…? Do you have something to tell me Daryl?
Daryl: Nope, nothing at all
Then why are you reading a pregnancy book?!
Daryl: It never hurts to be prepared.
It looks like Dahlia has finally gotten some company in the sandbox.
Clara is the first person to use the trampoline since Ivan.
Elijah: I’m pretty sure you don’t upgrade the cooker by hitting it with a hammer.
Ayden: Why is this kid still here again? Surely his parents are missing him by now.
Dahlia finally seems to be living up to her Natural Cook trait.
By some miracle she manages not to burn her first meal.
Clara: Hey, give me some credit here
Ayden: Hey kid, you must have some crappy parents for them to not care about you.
Elijah: You wouldn’t believe me if I told you
Ayden: Well it’s there loss, you’re always welcome here.
Elijah: *internal screaming*
Well it’s not quite what Elijah was hoping for but at least it’s progress.
I turn my back for 2 seconds and these two get into a fight in the living room.
Daryl: Take that you spoiled brat!
Cai: You will regret this when I take over.
I think he’s regretting it now, don’t you?
Daryl: Stupid daddy’s girl, getting me in trouble
Daryl: Ok, I’ll shut up.
True story, only Daryl got into trouble for the fight from Ayden. Cai got off scot free.
Dahlia is being a nice big sister and playing with her youngest brother. She bet him but it’s the thought that counts, right?
After D and E’s game I packed up the whole family and sent them to the spring festival. I’ve never sent any of my Sims to these festivals so this should be fun.
The first thing I did when they got there is have Ayden take them all into the photobooth and get a family picture done. Of course Clara had to block her mother out.
After the photo was done all these idiots started queuing up for the only food stand as if they’ve never seen food before. They stood there for hours before they were all served.
Clara chose to stay out of the scramble for food and found herself a comfy rocking chair to spend the rest of the festival in.
Clara: We need to get one of these at home.
Not on your life missy!
Envy spends her time playing horseshoes whilst Dahlia dances away in the background.
I was curious so I had Ayden tend the kissing booth for a couple of hours but he didn’t get a single sale.
Ayden: I’m to hot to handle that’s why.
Yeah, sure, lets go with that
After his failure at the kissing booth Ayden went to spend some time with his loving wife. They tried out the love tester and got the highest score. Not long after that they ran home.
By this point everyone else had gone home except Dahlia.
Dahlia: Sweet freedom!
Back at home little Mags is becoming not so little anymore. Her head is a little weird shaped compared to her body but apart from that she’s still adorable.
It seems it’s the day for birthdays because Alyssa’s youngest son Titus also aged up.
He’s pretty much a clone of his mum.
Daryl brings this girl, Jade Owen, home from school. I briefly consider her for Clara’s spouse
But she goes and ruins it when she rejects Clara’s flirt.
I used Clara’s one teen action for this.
Clara*In the background*: Why won’t you love me?
Elijah: Should we just ignore this?
It was at this point that I realized that Cai hadn’t come home with the rest of the kids. I found her outside the school on the jungle gym.
Cai: Curses, I was trying to escape you while I’ve still got that choice!
Most of Elijah’s interactions are based around working out nowadays but his all-time favourite pastime is still the ballet barre.
It seems we have a new paparazzi. Creeper Jay Salas came into the house and took pictures of Dahlia at like 4am when she was doing her homework.
Cai has her own set of creepers too. The girl behind her stood there staring at her for hours whilst she was on her smart phone.
Envy is still slowly working on her LTW. She only has a point or 2 to complete it.
Mags: Who is this peasant?
Elijah: Love me please!
I can’t remember why I took this picture again.
Cai: Are you done yet, you’re blocking my TV!
Ayden works on his logic for his job. I’m really hoping he can top it before Cai becomes heir.
Dahlia: How much do you think our inheritance will be? I hope it’s a diamond.
Elijah: Sorry to break it to you but I’m pretty sure we’re not getting any inheritance.
And who said you guys will ever get to leave. I love you too much!
Dahlia and Elijah: We take it back, we don’t want any inheritance if we are allowed to leave.
Elijah: *to self* Maybe if I piss off the heiress she’ll kick me out.
Don’t count on it Sweetie, but she might make your life here much harder.
After what feels like forever Ayden reached level 9 of his career. Only 1 to go and he’s completed his LTW!
Actually, as soon as he got promoted he rolled this wish. That’s my boy!
Speaking of LTW’s 3 of the kids finally rolled theirs.
Clara rolled Leader of the Free World (Politics)
Dahlia rolled World Renowned Surgeon (Medical)
and Elijah rolled Master Acrobat (Acrobat).
Cai and Daryl have yet to roll one.
Out of all the LTW’s I think Elijah’s is most fitting with all the exercise he does.
Envy reaches level 9 in Martial Arts. She’s so close to completing her LTW now.
Ayden and Envy have one last moment of coupley bliss before my game decides to fuck up completely.
Just before my game exploded both Cai and Elijah made it onto the honor roll but I missed their pop-ups +10
After the great explosion which actually happened to be my having corrupt CC in my game I packed all the family up (or I thought I had) and popped them down in a fresh save of Midnight Hollow (‘cause I have a serious love for this town). Only when they got to the town did I realize that Pep and Ivan’s tombstones didn’t make the journey even if Cat and Rylee’s had. I’m not sure at this point if I’ll go back and pick them back up but for now it’s just the main family. Hopefully my Sims will now be interesting instead of just standing around doing nothing.
The first duty in the new town is the elder twins birthdays. I tried in the old save but they wouldn’t age up. Here’s hoping it goes better this time around.
Ladies and gentlemen, your new heir.
She rolled Snob as her final trait joining her Perceptive, Adventurous, Evil and Couch Potato.
She also rolled the Alchemy Artisan LTW.
Thankfully she sort of grew into her jawline.
Clara, as the second eldest, goes up next.
She rolls the Brooding trait to join her No sense of humour, Disciplined, Natural Cook and Easily Impressed traits.
She is very pretty for being a clone and I actually quite like her. She’ll be sticking around until the D twins age up and she can move out with them.
(Sorry but that’s what his face reminded me of).
Llama man: I despise you little cat thing. You are worthless compared to the mighty Llama!
Mags: Is this thing for real? He’s not getting my cat condo!
And with that I shall leave you until I find out whether Cai is accepted to adopt.
Joins us next time for Cai’s reign to officially begin.
Oh, yeah, I should probably link to the new download page I set up. It’s here for anyone who wants a Holly.
