Happy Friday the 13th all! Hopefully you haven’t encountered the mysterious shade that attacks teenage Sims at nearby Camp Plumbob Lake.
Week 28 – Day 190:
What a sopping hot Sunday. Serefina & Niobe are 111, Hyperion & Deo have 11 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 15 days before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 1 days left till she’s a Child.
Niobe starts using the Catalyst Chemistry Station to develop potions which she can use to exact vengeance on her many, many enemies.
Deo was able to do his cameo as the door-to-door salesman in in “Llamas vs Gnomes”. Geez, they’ve been working on that movie forever! Serefina’s cameod in it too. With all the courage Iris could muster, she asked her boss for a raise. Fortunately, she got promoted up to Production Manager (5).
Belladonna had an unremarkable birthday up to Adult. Since she’s basically a failure as a virtual being, she’s having a mid-life crisis. Also she got raised up to B-List Celebrity.
The paparazzi posted a story that Serefina passed out in the park (which was true), so she sued them and won her case! They also wrote about Niobe being arrested by the cops (which was false), but when she sued she lost her case. I guess that’s just the way the Alaska Bakes.
The French Literacy Guild wants Iris to hand-deliver one of her books to France. Sadly, they don’t realize she’s never written anything.
Europa aged up to the cutest little kid, her facial genetics are just awesome. She rolled the Perfectionist trait, and Iris signed her up for Ballet class.
Hyperion’s asked to perform at Waylon’s Haunt again. This might be the band’s big break, we can’t miss out on it again!
Belladonna is master of the Mixology skill! I guess that’s her LTW completed then, no way she can mess it up now..
I really like the color-scheme I picked out for Europa. The bright pastels and the dark hues match well.
Dara Dent-Wolfe has started dating Jamel Diwan-Gilbert. Prometheus literally just died last week. Literally. Ooooh, they will be punished!
Iris has a big decision; the President of the movie studio wants her to choose between Acting or Directing. Since I want some variation, she goes with Directing and is promoted to Storyboardist (6).
After dropping off permission slips at City Hall, Europa gets signed up for a field trip to the Mausoleum. Creepy! (That’s one of the new features in this expansion, kids get to take time out of school and visit a random rabbithole around town.)
Even though Niobe wasn’t even that close to Prometheus, he was her brother. So she’s decided to try and kill Dara and Jamel. Her plan is simple:
- Step 1: Attack Dara. ✔
- Step 2: Befriend Jamel. Don’t tell him about searing hatred. Possible seduction..?
- Step 3: Light their house on fire.
- Step 4: Install Scary Computer booby trap.
- Step 5: Hideous potions.
- Step 10: Profit?
Whoops, Europa missed her field trip. My bad!
Deo called in sick so that he could play with Hyperion at the bar. Sim’s Magazine wrote them up and said it’s a “decent place to hang”, but unfortunately Deo got caught for playing hooky.
Sadly, the Grim Reaper comes for us all in the end, and it’s time for another Heir to die.
Well, Serefina had a good life. And 114 days old has got to be the record sofar, right? Perhaps in grief or madness at the loss of her twin sister, Niobe works hard through the night to develop new potions to torture her rivals. She’s rewarded with a Bladder-Explosion juice, a Stanky-Stink sap, and a boring Obiectum Reparo salve. (Step 5: ✔)
EAxis did an icky; Irma Dent-Wolfe and Shane Morel-Wolfe are now dating. (That’s Prometheus’ daughter with Cascadia’s grandson.) 😳
So, it turns out that Niobe can’t plant any booby-traps. Something about not being a child, I think. Fortunately she has an impressionable young mind under her thumb. Niobe is willing to let Europa off the hook for accidentally skipping the field trip if Europa helps her exact revenge by planting traps all over Dara’s house. (Step 4: ✔) Poor child, being forced to do her evil aunt’s bidding!
Iris threw a funeral for Serefina. It was a mild-success, since she got raised to Renowned VIP (celebrity lvl 4).
I think between planning a murder and the death of her sister, it was just too much for Niobe’s heart as she follows Serefina into the great beyond.
Well, Niobe had a mean life. And 115 days old has got to be the new record, right? Also the never-before-mentioned scumbag paparazzi Mitchel Blackburn passed on. Rest in virtual hell, jerk!
Hyperion’s promoted up to Aesthetic Architect (8). Still stuck at level 3 Celebrity though..
Editor’s note: For some reason, Hyperion just wasn’t getting any more Celebrity points. I measured it, and he was actually losing points every day, even though he was completing opportunities. You can read more about it here. I finally decided that the Architecture career was futzing up his ability to gain fame and friends.
Europa’s asked to hunt down some butterflies for school. She also has a Ballet Recital. But nobody showed up..
So, there were 7 Sims on the Legacy Lot and now we’re down to 5. And right now Europa’s the only heir which is kindof risky in case of something tragic happening. So Deo and Iris get a little bit cosy to sure up the family legacy with another child.
Boy, wouldn’t it suck if 3 members of the Legacy family died in the same week? Ha, ha ha, ha ha.. Oh, whoops.
Fortunately, Hyperion is VERY unlucky. The Grim reaper appears and rasps “Your constant misfortune amuses me. It would be a shame to take that priceless entertainment away.” So yaa, resurrection! After reflecting on his near-death experience, Hyperion decides to retire from architecture and join the Acting career.
Belladonna finished her midlife crisis with 5 wishes. Well, she may be a general disappointment, but at least she did better than her brothers with her existential crisis.
And that’s another Sim-week done! With Iris being pregnant, I think next week we’ll see some fresh faces on the Legacy Lot.
Community death count: 272 or so.
Legacy Score: 80. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 11 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 30)
Theme song of the week: “Lucky” by Britney Spears
