Week 25 – Day 169:
It was a warm and hot Sunday. Serefina & Niobe are 90, Hyperion & Deo have 10 days left until they’re Adults, and Belladonna has 20 days left until she’s an Adult.
By working on his mad painting skills, Hyperion was promoted to Décor Debutant (level 5). He’s also attracted to Griselda Claremont-Gilbert, but she’s married. Oh well!
The school is setting up a Haunted House, and wants Niobe to provide them with some more spirits. Sure, nothing like trading the essence or embodiment of a dead person for cold hard cash!
I gave Dara the Fertility Treatment and she got pregnant very quickly! (That sounds dirtier than I meant it to..)
Also the President of the Studio wants Deo to choose between the Actor or Director branch at the Film Studio. Actor, obviously! He got promoted to TV Actor (6).
Belladonna’s part-time job is kindof pointless, since it’s a dead-end career and won’t help her LTW. So I’m having her call in sick each day (to keep earning an income) until she is fired.
Well, sadly, it’s time to make room on the legacy lot, so that means somebody has to move out. Since they are starting their own family soon, it makes sense for Prometheus and Dara to find a new home. I wasn’t sure how much money to give them, so §20,000.
Hyperion’s been promoted to a fabulous Furniture Fashionista (6). I’ve given up on the glitchy remodelling entirely, he’s purely a Painter now.
Deo’s agent recommended he work out for a few hours, in the name of publicity. This celebrity system only makes sense if you don’t think about it.
You know, the vampires in my game are very conservative. When I installed Late Night, I was expecting an outbreak of vampirism where every other Sim would be a creature of the night, feeding in public with the occasional murder. But as far as I can tell there’s only Alvin & Demetria, and I’ve never even seem them drink from another Sim. I might try that Vampire-Slayer mod from NRaas later on.
Niobe doesn’t like Iris Hendricks. What else is new?
Dara gave birth to her twins; Claude and Irma. Neat!
Against my better judgement and choosing not to remember the Sports Bar Inferno of the ‘50s, I sent Hyperion to complete his dancing opportunity at the Aquarius. Luckily, nobody was immolated this time..
Following his agent’s advice, Deo orders a drink at the Banzai Lounge. It must’ve worked because he’s promoted to B-List Celebrity (3). He also got promoted to Featured Actor (7), and won the Sims’ Choice Award. About time! On a hot strick, Deo asked Iris the Pizza-Person to be his girlfriend.
Iodine mastered the Nectar skill and got promoted up to a Notable Figure. Whoops, I didn’t mean to do that.. I also got a weird message that Kajaptah Larimoropolese has adopted Fen Lu-Min, who appears to be a 48 year-old Young Adult.
My plan of Belladonna calling in fake-sick has backfired; she got caught, was demoted a level, and then got depressed. So she quit the Bookstore and joined the Fishing career instead.
Deo’s boss thinks he needs more exposure, and has decreed that he should gain a celeb level to improve his career performance. On the romantic side of things, Deo and Iris seem to be a great couple. Their relationship is pretty high and I’d like her to join the legacy family. He proposes marriage and..
That sucks.. Hmm, maybe they need to be a bit closer first?
Lewis Morel-Wolfe and wife Jeri had a new baby called Jonathan. Also Dara’s aged up to Elder. And somebody painted Belladonna for the house. (I wanna say, Serefina? Or Hyperion.)
Following his agent’s advice, Hyperion orders a drink at the Banzai Lounge. It must’ve worked because he’s promoted to B-List Celebrity (3). Wow, I just had a sense of deja-vu.
Deo proposed marriage again and..
.. he got rejected again. What the hell..? Their relationship is perfect! I mean, cummon! Deo is a rich, good-looking TV-star with a snappy outfit and – literally – a trove of treasure in his basement. How can you say no? Gaa!! *nerd rage*
This is kindof messed up; Ze Lei Shin Yi-Wolfe and Edith Morel are dying… again. Ze Lei just passed away last week, and Edith had previously died twice on Week 18 (some 50-odd Sim-days ago). More on this story as people continue to die.
Kajaptah asked Niobe to build her a metal statue with some old scrap metal. Unfortunately she caught on fire but Serefina rescued her. Meanwhile, Serefina mastered her Cooking skill!
Somebody spread a rumour that Deo is rummaging through people’s garbage cans, and then Cletus Tanner-Steel died. Coincidence?
So this time I had Deo ask Iris to move in (instead of marriage), and she agreed. I’ll give Iris a full bio in the next post, but I think her Insane trait made her refuse marriage before. That could be a problem, because Deo’s Insane too..
Apparently Iris was already filthy rich, because she brought §834,000 with her. That’s actually higher than the furnished value of the legacy lot. With this new money the House score is now maxed out. Anyways, Iris joined the Acting career.
And that’s another week in the bag! Next week, I’ll install the next expansion and another Sim will move out.
Community death count: 230 or so.
Legacy Score: 72. (Gen: 4 + LTW: 10 + Portraits: 13 + House: 20 + LTR: 25)
Theme song of the week: “Someday You Will Be Loved” by Death Cab for Cutie
