PASS THE PAINTING
Lot: Cozy Co-Op - Family Name Ternynck - Claire, Reed and dogs Cheese and Fah-Zaih
Last Visit: Minor Times Two - Claire moved into a small house all by herself as she had no plans to marry. Her life time want is to earn $100,000. She promptly adopted a female puppy named Cheese. She reached 'The Zone' in Music and Dance, and reached the top of her career in Entertainment and Education. At the end of the round, she adopted a playmate for Cheese, a dog named Marcus. The hope was to breed the two.
Claire is a Fortune Sim with a life time want to earn $100,000. (accomplished) I had thought to run her through a bunch of different jobs to do it..the long way I know...but what else was there for me to do with her? I didn't intend for her to get married. But you know how Sims are. *smile* Her new life time want is to become a Space Pirate. There is no family tree for Reed, Claire met him in Uni.
ASimWen draws the Disaster card for this lot: Number 250. Pass the Painting.
Queen: Well, we are going to have the subject paint multiple pictures of herself, then trick others in Prosperity Falls to buy it and hang it in their homes.
King: And this will help us to learn what ..... about the earthlings???
Queen: Well, about how self centered they are. Yeah.
King: I see. I see she is painting. Very good.
King: What is the matter, my love?
Queen: It seems the flux capacitor hic-upped. Time has suddenly moved forward by two days.
King: Dont' tell me....
Queen: Nah, no worries. My finger slipped on the time travel button. Sorry.
King: So what does this mean?
Queen: It means we didn't get any pictures of her working the store. (It means ASimWen had so much fun running the store she forgot to take any pictures).
King: *Sigh* Okay. So all the paintings have been sold. What now?
Queen: We will just have to check each home in Prosperity Falls from now on to see if the portrait is present.
King: Ahhh. Okay. What else is Claire doing? Might as well spy. We still have some time to spend here.
King: Why is he disagreeable?
Queen: He mercilessly teases the chef in the dorm. But that doesn't matter to Claire. She has a three bolt attraction to Tenynck.
Queen: Did you hear that? Chimes.
King: It means they were successful at creating a fetus.
King: This has given me an idea for the next house we will visit....
Queen: What is that?
King: The death of the dog...
Queen: The dog didn't die.
King: But what if..........
Accomplishments this round: Claire succeeded in passing her portrait six times. She also reached TOC in Criminal, and obtained a hobby plaque in Arts and Crafts.
The Next Lot.....
Woody Strickland and his sister Diane
DEATH BY FIRE
No family trees are shown for this lot this round.
King: I will choose the topic of study for this house.
Queen: And so?
Queen: You are going to kill off the earthlings? That was never the Mission!
King: We are not on the Mission any more. We are observers. *ahem* It seems the woman Diane is in love with many. (Editor - Let's pick up where we left off last entry and count the loves...but being that there is no one living in the house now as I write this blog entry I have no memories to check or in game picture album to check. So I am wingin' it here).
Queen: Woody has reached a milestone in his life, as well. It appears he is really attached to his wife Robin....
They tend to autonomously cuddle under the clouds alot. Yes indeed, that cloud looks like a bathtub.....
My goodness, they can't keep their hands off each other!
King: That is the way it is with a three bolt attraction, my love.
Queen: She has just finished a date with her husband Woody and woo hoo took place.
Queen: Her father is Benjamin Long, husband to Felecia (Strickland) Long.
King: I can see how the males will mate with many on Earth.
Queen: Come on now, love. You pursued it in the Mission with the human Xuan.
King: *sigh* I did find out they will do it on their own without any help from us. Xuan will be no different now than he was before we pulled the plug. What a waste of our time....it was.
Queen: It appears Diane is irritated about something....
My failed attempt at a death by fire
King: Let's do something else. Oh I know. We will use the cook stove. Time to do it.
Queen: Yes, it appears this fire isn't going anywhere.
King: Ahhh... *rubs hands together* Here we go.
Queen: You are enjoying this entirely too much.
King: I spent years being a goody two shoes on earth. Time to have some fun. *hrumph*
King: It appears all the adults in the house are involved with the fire.
Queen: It is sad two of the children are as well. The third child is sleeping through it.
Queen: They are on the edge of death constantly, and no one dies!
King: *Sigh* Just another failure on my part with earth........
Queen: Do not despair dear. It looks like things are moving along. The boy Royal is standing in the ashes of the kitchen counter...wondering how he can get to the telephone on the wall behind the burning adults...
Queen: Zakel has once again passed out in the flames, and Royal is still trying to get to the telephone to call the emergency squad.
King: It looks like he isn't being successful!
King: The emergency squad is on the way, the boy Royal finally called.
Queen: tsk tsk my love. *shakes head*
King: Hey, Zakel wanted to get involved. She was constantly falling asleep in the fire! Hum. But the child's play table never burned....see it is still there.
King: And Grim finishes taking the rest of the Sims to Sim heaven. Interesting. Royal still cleans, all the while thinking about the dead ones.
King: Who is this???
Queen: It is the social worker. She has come to take the two remaning children still alive to the orphanage. This is Revyn, daughter of Diane and Goopy Gilsboro. She slept in bed through the fire. Royal will go to the orphanage as well.
King: It is done. What a delightful scene! It was more interesing...than... *yawn* watching a girl paint.........
Accomplishments this round - LTW for Diane, 20 Sim Woo-hoos. I was 24 into Woodys' want of 50 Dream Dates. Hobby plaque for Woody.
Editor - I didn't mean for all the adults to die...let alone one of the children. Just one would have sufficed. We all must remember I am not used to killing off Sims. This was not a well controled or well thought out fire. But that is what these disaster cards are for, right? To make us do things we ordinairly wouldn't do. I tried to kill off the nanny but bungled that. So I just decided to do it this way, it was a sure thing. I should have moved the telephone to a different place in the house so the fire department could have been called earlier.
I do plan to move someone else into this house and maybe adopt the kids back. I kinda wanna see that child ghost. Heh.
