Well here we are at the start of a new generation. The heir if you haven’t already guessed is Melon.
Before I start on the goings on of the family I would like to mention to anyone who hasn’t seen it that I am running an heir poll (of sorts) over on the Winterton Adoptacy page. If you haven’t voted then get yourself over there by clicking here.
Right last time there were many fails and a few birthdays. We start this chapter with a very important birthday, the heir. There was no party and just his sisters made it in time for his big moment
Blueberry and Mulberry: *are unimpressed*
Melon: I don’t think I’m ready. Is it too late to change my mind.
Melon: I’m a sexy beast.
Well you are now, seriously look at him! I did not expect him to turn out this good.
Melon: Thanks, that makes me feel so much better.
Any time. 😀
Melon’s new trait is Insane and his LTW is Jack of all trades.
With Melon now a YA, it’s time to say goodbye to the spares. First to go is Kiwi. I got him a job as a ghosthunter and set him free to be at the mercy of story progression.
Bye Kiwi, see you at birthday parties
With him I sent Jaimie and Lassie. I needed to free up some space and she technically is no longer family since she and Tobias divorced. She wasn’t upset by it though and quickly remarried shortly after moving out.
Maya & Nolan celebrated the news of a soon to be quieter house in their own sweet way.
Nolan: Can we go bouncy bouncy now?
Tobias is still around, at last play he was at 127 days and still going. I think he is my oldest living sim yet! That doesn’t mean he can keep doing things like this though.
With Young adulthood comes the unavoidable and in my opinion total waste of time graduation. Melon was voted most likely to have a big family which is probably true, for once.
Melon: Yeah! No more school!
Blueberry: I should not have used the bathroom in there. I have seen things that can never be unseen.
Many needs were dropping during the ceremony and I was suprised Tobias gave me the only fail.
Blueberry: A bed would be more comfortable grandpa.
Tobias: The floor is closer.
I give up. -5
As the new torch holder Melon starts to work on his skills. Of course living with four teenagers means many, many pranks.
Melon: I swear that wasn’t me!
This was so funny in game or maybe that’s just my sense of humour? I was watching a film recently called ‘The Other Woman’ and I just laughed so hard at this one toilet scene.
Melon has also taken over care of Maya’s garden. Maya’s last act as torch holder by the way was to upgrade this sprinkler to autowater.
Melon: Grow my pretties. Mwa ha ha ha!
He’s evil, let him have his moment.
Aw, male bonding over a cooking show.
Tobias: I can tell you many things Jacklyn used to do with a carrot. None of them involved cooking though. He he he
Melon: Ew, grandpa, I do not need to know.
Maya’s being consumed by a mini tornado! Quick someone help her!
Oh never mind she’s ok.
Mulberry: I’m too tired to be dealing with this right now.
This is what Maya does for fun now she is on free will.
A quick time out to annouce that I have added some very important sims to the town. This is me, or a likeness of me anyway. Don’t I look happy.
Charlotte: A shack, I’m living in a shack.
It is a very nice shack.
She is not alone though, this is a sim version of my boyfriend. I will be making my simself available for download soon.
Lee: Does this house come with a cat?
Oops I forgot to make a sim of our little cat Teddy. Never mind, they will probably adopt one anyway.
Now back to the Mendoza’s where Melon is dumpster diving. (He had a wish for it)
And the paparazi are fighting. I can only presume over who’s patch this is.
Oh yes and Blueberry managed to start a fire by trying to cook something.
Everyone: *panics and stands stupidly close to the flames*
Melon started to try and put the fire out and the fire fighter that arrived actually helped! Miracles do happen!
Blueberry: I really need to pee but this more important.
Yes sim logic at it’s finest.
Blueberry: Not going to make it, can’t hold it in any longer.
But the toilet is right there.
Blueberry: I’m not using that, it’s filthy.
And peeing on the floor isn’t?
Blueberry: Mr McQuackers said it would be fine.
Look he carries his chew toy around, so cute. Don’t worry I will get you another playmate soon.
House renovations start and the first is an extended porch area with two staircases to hopefully prevent jams. Isn’t it pretty? I added pink touches as that is Melon’s fav colour.
Guess who the first one to try the rocking chairs out was?
It’s a big day and everyone starts by having a nutritious breakfast. Well almost everyone.
Raspberry: Ice cream for breakfast again Dad?
Nolan: It’s maple bacon flavour.
Melon: Got to have me some of that.
That big day is of course the Quad’s birthday. Guests start to arrive, invited or not.
Birthday picspam commence
I have never had so many sims turn up for a party. It was crazy and at one point most were stuck in a huge jam in the kitchen.
OK here we go this is the Quads after makeovers.
First up is Strawberry, her final trait is Vegetarian and her LTW is to be Emperor of Evil.
Raspberry is next, her final trait is Equestrian and her LTW is The Jockey
Mulberry next, her new trait is Social Butterfly and her LTW is Vocal Legend.
Bye guys! They will all be added to the download list soon.
They are not the only ones making an important move. Melon is off to Uni. More on that next time.
