Chapter 40: Night of the Prom

Hi all!  I probably don’t say this enough, but:

Sound off in the comments, let me know what you think. What do you enjoy about the story, what you don’t, too many words?, not enough pictures?, etc. Like, subscribe, share, etc.

Also I uploaded the Generation 4 banner up as well.  Enjoy!

Week 30 – Day 204:

It was an saunishly hot Sunday.  Hyperion & Deo are 76, Iris has 1 day before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 8 days left till she’s a Young Adult.

Gawain and Roche chatting together.

Iris started writing a new script, “Homicidal Robots Shouldn’t be on TV”.

Hyperion was asked to cameo in “Llamas Vs. Gnomes”.  Everyone’s had a walk-on role in it!

You remember Lee Kim-Yao?  He was like the Special Merchant in China or something.  He passed away.  If he was already an adult on Day 98, I think he might’ve been an Immortal.

Day 205:

Europa asking Rogelio to the Prom.

Europa asking Rogelio to the Prom.

It was the day of the Big Dance and Europa still didn’t have a date, so she summoned up her courage and asked her friend Rogelio Diwan-Irwin.  What luck, he said yes!

Editor’s note: I wish I had asked someone, but I went stag. 😦

The young couple.

The young couple.

At the Prom, Europa and Rogelio were slow-dancing and he asked her if she wanted to go steady.  How magical!  She also begged all of her classmates to vote her as Prom Queen, so she won that!  How desperate! They were voted cutest couple, and impressed everyone with their chicken dance.

Meanwhile, a dark and mysterious figure (wearing a glittering ski mask, turtle-neck sweater combo) violently attacks several of Europa’s friends throughout the night, including some guys named “Slick” and Lou.  The hoodlum is later defeated by Europa in an amazing dance sequence.

Oh, also it was Iris’ birthday. She’s an Elder now.

Day 206:

Deo playing with his kids.

Deo playing with his kids.

Holy cow!  Somebody spread a rumour that Deo was arrested, and he lost 15 relationships.  Fifteen! Somebody should really do something to stop the Lucky Palms paparazzi infestation.  The STLPPI movement is born.  #STLPPI

Iris wins the prestigious Green Orb Award, and gets promoted to Assistant Director (9).  Meanwhile Hyperion gets promoted up to Production Manager (5).

Europa finally gets to go on an exciting field trip to the Graveyard, and gets a cool poster souvenir.  The school wants her to get an after-school job: Nah.

She’d rather do this:

Europa and Rogelio share their first kiss.

Unfortunately for their blooming romance, Rogelio has aged up to Young Adult and I don’t have any mods to deal with that!

Day 207:

Gawain playing with his doll Piewar while Roche learns his C chord.

When Europa was a Toddler, I didn’t have much luck bringing her doll Glowsponge to life.  I’m trying harder with Gawain and Piewar, hopefully this time I’ll get somewhere with it.

Europa seems to get along well with kids.

Hyperion’s promoted up to TV Actor (6).  Also Iris needs to stay late at work to shoot extra scenes for the production.  She starts writing “The Beast with a Thousand Fronts”.

Editor’s note: I’m officially worried that Hyperion will not be able to reach level 5 Celebrity to finish his LTW.  There’s 5 or 6 other LTWs I am considering switching to, such as Golden Tongue, Private Aquarium, or Swimming in Cash.

Day 208:

Since she’s almost there anyways, I changed Iris’ LTW from whatever it was before to Distinguished Director.

Hyperion’s asked to deliver 10 of his own paintings to the Business Office, in exchange for money.  Also Belladonna is considered an Amateur Ichthyologist.

The whole extended family. (So Shane?, Irma, Claude, Lewis?, Deo, Rene?, and Jonathan?)

Europa is invited to an Art-A-Thon, where she wins a free painting.  Did I mention she joined the Drama Club?  I think she got the “Best Participation Award” or something.

Double birthday time! Gawain rolled the Technophobe trait, and I gave Roche the Rebellious trait.

Day 209:

Hyperion asked for a raise, won the Sims’ Choice Award, and got promoted to Featured Actor (7).  Also Iris began writing her musical, “We’re Whalers on the Moon”, and the B-Movie “The Humans are Attacking!”

Well, it looks like Piewar and Figment are dud dolls.  Neither of them did anything remotely magical or whimsical, let alone came to life.  I feel let down, like Gepetto after building his first 100 lifeless Pinocchios.

Roche has started sabotaging plumbing on public lots for the lulz.

Somebody called Sheryl Wolf died.  Wolf, with no “E”. How was she related again?

Day 210:

Belladonna caught… A Piece of Seaweed!

Have I mentioned I’ve been trying to collect all the fish from the Base Game and expansions?  Belladonna’s managed to get 2 or 3 of the Late Night fish.

Hehe, as part of his Rebellious nature Roche is allowed to “Complain about the Status Quo”.

Oh dear; Irma Dent-Wolfe & Shane Morel-Wolfe are having a baby. They are first cousins once removed. Which is illegal in 6 American states, but not in The United States of Simarica, apparently.

Oh geez; you know Lee Kim-Yao, quest-giver, China?  Anyways he died again.  I think it’s a cry for attention, personally.

Belladonna gets a funny 500 celebs.  The quest was to work out for 4 hours but it auto-completed while she was sleeping.

Next week: The original prankster.

Chapter 39: Lasers and Rock Music

Happy Movember all. I’ve been working on something that’s kindof interesting, it’s related to the Legacy Challenge. It’s not done yet, but I’ll post a link when it looks good.

Week 29 – Day 197:

It was an unseasonable warm Sunday.  Hyperion & Deo have 4 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 8 days before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 1 day left till she’s a Teen.

Iris asks Dr. Griselda what about her baby’s gender.

Iris asks Dr. Griselda what about her baby’s gender.

Iris was curious if her baby is a boy or a girl, so she asked the family doctor.  Through osmosis, Griselda knew it’s a boy!  Then Iris asked some rando/her best friend/her boss Rhonda Diwan-Irwin for a promotion, and she got it!  Now she’s a 2nd Unit Director (7).

Europa and her cousin (?) Winston Morel-Wolfe had a play-date.  So much fun, I get to test out some of the Generations’ features.  They play pretend, have a Treehouse party*, and host a banquet.

*There ain’t no party like a Treehouse party!

Editor’s note: Hyperion’s actually gaining celebrity points now!  As I mentioned before, the system was broken & he was making 0% progress towards the next celebrity level.  After taking him out of the Architecture career, the system works fine.  I don’t know why, just cuz..

Day 198:

Iris going into labour. Iris giving birth to twin boys.
Iris giving birth to twin boys.

In the wee hours of the morning, Iris goes into labour.  As somewhat predicted, Iris gave birth to twin boys.  Gawain Wolfe, and Roche Obsidian Wolfe.  They’re both Evil; Gawain rolls Clumsy and Roche rolls Hates the Outdoors.  Gawain’s got brownish eyes, and Roche has the Wolfe-red eyes.

Unfortunately, someone decided to spread a rumour about Iris getting arrested.  Because they hate babies, or something.

Hyperion blasts it into hyperspace as 'Left Bridge Guard' in "Germ".

Somebody’s long lost Auntie Francine sent the twins a matching pair of creepy dolls.  Piewar for Gawain and Figment for Roche.

Princess Europa had a themed pool party.

Also it’s Europa’s birthday up to Teenager.  She’s so pretty.  I could clone a whole family of Europas and be happy.  This time I chose for her the Nurturing trait.

Also Iodine (the android) & Doug Claremont-Gilbert got married!  Can Simbots have babies?

Day 199:

Accurate 3D representation.

Accurate 3D representation.

What a mess.  The lot is just out-of-control from objects & dirty dishes and, and.. and, cleaning sinks!  It’s just too much, I can’t even!  I finally caved* and hired a butler.  Classy fellow with a monocle, his name is Jefferson Hamel.

*I hate wasting money on frivolous things, but the Wolfes are so rich it doesn’t even matter.

 Hyperion has a bit part as 'The Bartender' in "Strange Legs".

Hyperion was promoted to Best Boy (2).  And after weeks of glitching he’s a Renowned VIP (4).  FINALLY!  One step closer to his LTW.

I signed Europa up to take Art as an after-school activity.  Not as useful as Ballet, but I guess it’s something.  Also she’s going on her first Field Trip (hopefully) to Area-52 Test Labs tomorrow.

Europa and Claude are related.. somehow.

Europa and Claude are related.. somehow.

Europa and Claude Dent-Wolfe have the flirty-hearts for eachother.  He’s Prometheus’ son, so.. 1st cousin once removed.  Eww, EAxis.

Day 200:

Editor’s note: Holy, land-cow.  It’s day 200!!  I never expected to get this far!  I mean, I hoped I would, but since I have no follow-through on anything it seems really unlikely.

Iris was promoted up to Script Writer (8).  Nearly there!  Also the local theatre wants Hyperion to cameo in their play.

Hyperion plays 'Devon MacLeish' in the remake of "The Buffster: Vampire Killer".

Hyperion plays ‘Devon MacLeish’ in the remake of “The Buffster: Vampire Killer”.

To celebrate 200 Sim-days, I threw a big-arsed party.  My graphics card on my laptop was like “Please, just no, have mercy on me!”  But I just grinned and did it anyways*.  To hell with 10+ framerates!  Muahahaha!

*Maybe this is one of the reasons my laptop died.. 😳

The 200 Day Party stage.

The 200 Day Party stage.

As you can see, there’s 19 FX machines, 7 strobe lights, 8 staircases (in case of emergency), and 4 huge dancefloors.  With all the different effects firing at once, it looked kindof nuts.

Hyperion and Deo performing for the crowd.

Deo and Hyperion are now considered Everybody’s Best Friend.  Hurray!

Deo kicks it out as Kung-Fu master ‘Uanko’ in “Shatterball”, with Hyperion as ‘Alley Guy 2’.

Hyperion was promoted up to Key Grip (3).  Deo’s considered a Marathon Runner, so he’ll live a good long life.

Also Jonathan Morel-Wolfe likes Europa.  That’s her… second cousin.  So technically legal, but weird.

“Okay honey, I’m gonna teach you how to drive!” “Have you been drinking, dad?”

“Okay honey, I’m gonna teach you how to drive!” “Have you been drinking, dad?”

Hmm, Dara Dent-Wolfe and Donte Claremont-Dreamer are dating.  I wonder whatever happened to Jamel?

Iris going into labour. Iris giving birth to twin boys.
Gawain and Roche are now Toddlers.

There were 4 birthdays on this day, but I started the whole “birthday cake” process kindof late so only Gawain and Roche aged up on the right day.

Day 202:

Continuing from yesterday, Deo and Hyperion aged up very late in the night (or early in the morning).

Iris going into labour. Iris giving birth to twin boys.
Hyperion and Deo are now Elders.

Deo’s reached the pinnacle of fame, a celebrated celebrity, he’s now a Superstar (5).  Too bad that wasn’t his LTW instead of Hyperion.  Speaking of, Hyperion’s been promoted up to Personal Assistant (4).

Europa misbehaves slightly and releases 50,000 frogs from the Biology department.  That’s so impressive I’m not even mad about it.

Europa and pillow-fight Winston have the flirty hearts too. Weird..

Europa and pillow-fight Winston have the flirty hearts too. Weird..

Europa’s gotta get ready for The Big Dance next Monday.  Her 3 possible dates are:

  • Jonathan Morel-Wolfe – Brown hair and brown eyes. 2nd cousin once removed.
  • Rogelio Diwan-Irwin – Short black hair and glasses. Not related.
  • Winston Morel-Wolfe – Red hair and Wolfe-red eyes. Jonathan’s brother.

We’ll try the one not related by blood first..

At least the butler dispenses advice: “Sims are shaped like lawn darts. Do keep that in mind next time you’re outside.”

So Dara’s ex-rebound Jamel is dating the infamous Dr. Sheri Diwan-Irwin.

Day 203:

Belladonna, now the proud owner of “The Grind” dance club.  Myahaha!

Belladonna, now the proud owner of “The Grind” dance club.  Myahaha!

Well, it looks like Belladonna tricked me.  Last week I said that she’d completed her LTW because she has lvl 10 Mixology skill and I had purchased “a bartop counter”, as in furniture.  I didn’t realize that she needed to own “a literal bar”, as in a business.  But after investment, 100%, she is for sure a Master Mixologist. LTW FTW!

“We really need some classier doors in this place.”

“We really need some classier doors in this place.”

Hyperion’s still trying to become more famous, so I send him to meet Isidro, the famous ghost.  (It turns out if you’re famous and die in TS3, you are forever stuck haunting the dance club where you died.  Bummer.  Or awesome, depends how you look at it.)

Next week: Ohmagod, it’s like, totally The Prom!

 

Community death count: 291 or so.

Legacy Score: 81. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 12 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 30)

Well that’s unnerving.
