Chapter 3.6 It’s a Bit Seedy but I Like it.

What’s this? I here you gasp, another chapter, so soon? Well you see I am going away next week so I wanted to get another chapter out before then.  Plus as usual I took way too many photos.

Melon: When I look this good how can you resist. 😀

Right.  *walks away slowly*

Last time Melon and Magrat had a big wedding and Magrat found out she was pregnant.

Screenshot-54

 

Piper: Why do I never get the good food.  I want a hot dog. *whines*

Nolan: Why is that dog always whining.

Why are you always in in your underwear?

Magrat: Look, I’m married.

I will be so glad when that moodlet wears off.

Screenshot-55

Tobias finds the other rocking chairs and becomes one of those old people that just sit and stare and everyone.

ManMaid: Don’t make eye contact, don’t make eye contact.

Screenshot-58

 

Later that day…

Maid: Well that’s me done for the day. *drops rubbish*

Hey wait what about that big pile of rubbish you just dropped?

Maid: *takes money* I’m off the clock, not my problem.

I hate sims 3 maids.  They are all useless.

Screenshot-60

Magrat: *sigh* I’m so lucky to be married to Melon.

Stop that.

 

Screenshot-62

Melon has been a little more productive.  He painted this which I love and hung in the kitchen.

Tobias: I like it, it has cake on it.

Screenshot-63

 

Nolan: Ah what could be better in the middle of winter than swimming butt naked during a snowstorm.

o_O

Screenshot-64

This made me laugh Maya rubbing Piper’s belly in the snow.  Find the dog.

Screenshot-66

Yay, she’s pregnant.  Must change her maternity wear.

Screenshot-67

That’s better.

Magrat: *sigh*

Don’t even say it.  I get it your married, stop making a big song and dance about it.

Screenshot-69

Aww look at them.  Be nice if they could find their beds but at least they’re not loosing me points.

Screenshot-70

Righty: Your children will be yellow skinned or you shall be punished.

Magrat: Please don’t hurt me.

Screenshot-73

So Melon uploaded his CV (resume) and landed a level 4 job in music.  That means he only has to gain one level and that’s one towards his LTW.

Screenshot-74

Obligatory cute pregnancy tummy feel.

Screenshot-75

This is just to show how cute my service NPCs are.  Ignore Tobias he’s just being senile and staring into space.

Screenshot-78

I found it really cute that Magrat liked the melon painting Maya did.

Magrat: It’s a bit seedy but I like it.

I would also like to point out that the radio is playing kids music.

Twins percentage with kids radio

Imagine my surprise when I check her status to find the twins percentage had shot up to a whopping 536%.  It rose to double that before the pregnancy was over.

This next section is just because I like the faces she pulls.

 

Screenshot-82 Screenshot-83 Screenshot-84 Screenshot-85 Screenshot-86

 

Ok I’m done.

Magrat: Can’t a girl get a moment’s piece.

Not in an ISBI.

Screenshot-89

Magrat: I hate being pregnant, I just can’t get comfortable.

I’m not suprised sitting like that. o_O

Tobias: My precious butt rutt. 😦

Screenshot-91

Magrat: Ow my back, get this thing out of me.

Tobias: Ah at last.

Screenshot-97

This a rare occasion when Tobias actually found his bed.

Piper: WAKE UP HUMAN! my food bowl is empty. *bark, bark*

Screenshot-102

Melon is building his guitar skill to hopefully get that promotion.

Tobias: The boy’s good.

Nolan, are you in your underwear again?

Nolan: Um…

Right, if you insist on dressing like that you can wear these.

Screenshot-103

 

Cute kitty cat slippers.

Nolan: But I don’t want to.

Then change your outfit or it will get worse.

Screenshot-114

Maya: Is he wearing kitty slippers?

Yup.

Nolan: Come on do the funky chicken!

They are actually really good dancers.

Screenshot-119

Magrat: OOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!

Something wrong?

Screenshot-120

Magrat: Nope, all fine.

Screenshot-126

Magrat: Just enjoying the snow.

Screenshot-129

Magrat: I think the baby’s coming.  *puff, puff*

Screenshot-134

It’s IT’S

Screenshot-136

Twins and neither of them is yellow. 😥

The naming theme is breakfast cereals so I named them Weetabix and All Bran

Weetabix All Bran

Weetabix was born Brave and athletic and All Bran was born with Loves outdoors & Disaplined.

Screenshot-139

I have again been downloading stuff.  Maybe one day I’ll stop.  I created this nursery.  It’s cute.

Screenshot-144

 

Magrat: You’ll forgive me right? I just gave birth.

Screenshot-150

 

 

That’s all for now, I think this chapter is long enough.

I shall leave you with this photo of Tobias meeting his great-grandson.  Not sure which burrito he has there.

Chapter 3.5 They’re Finally Getting Married!

Hey Hey! Look at that another chapter.  You lucky people.  Last time Melon and Magrat finished there degrees and Melon proposed.  This time as the title suggests is the wedding.

But before I get to the wedding here are pictures of a couple of rooms I have re-done.

twit (62)

This is the Kitchen.  I moved things around a bit, gave them more space.

Maya: As long as I can get to the fryer, I’m ok with it.

twit (64)

This is the master bedroom, formally Maya and Nolan’s room.  This is now Melon and Magrat’s room.  I like the pink, it makes a nice change from blue and purple.

Screenshot-93

I have never noticed the moving graphics on the tablet before.  It’s kind of cool, reminds me of Fruit Ninja a bit.

Maya: But donuts are better.  Fruit tastes rubbish deep fried.

I swear you are going to double in size now I can’t control you.

Maya: Is that a bad thing?

Screenshot-145

Magrat meanwhile has been wandering the house checking everything out.

Magrat: Yellow, slender.  It’s sweet that Melon has a statue of me.

One, that’s a ballet trophey. Two, put your dress on it’s almost time for your big day.

Magrat: Big Day? Is it my birthday?

No, Your wedding, remember? To Melon?

Screenshot-144

The pets are still around.  I think I introduced this little guy but in case anyone forgot this is Coco Pops.  Tobias loves him.

Tobias: Hey bud, want a treat?

Coco: Is the dog stupid?

week (2)

No but he is still cute, for a dog.

twit (67)

This is the wedding area.  All coloured in pink and blue, Melon and Magrat’s fav colours.  I like it, it’s pretty.

OK venue’s set up, guests invited, outfits sorted.

week (7)

Maya: When did we get a bar? Now where’s the Pims?

week (9)

Melon: Voila! I wedding feast made with my own fair hands.

You had nothing to do with it.

Melon: I ordered it. 😀

week (8)

Soon after the guests start arriving.  Mulberry’s first along with this guy who shows up univited to EVERY party they have.  I really like her dress.

week (10)

Miles: How can you wear that on your little brothers wedding day?

Kiwi: It’s all the rage with us young hip people.

Miles: I feel so old 😥

week (12)

Zak: Boo! Strawberry sucks!

Apollo: Have you remembered to take your pills bro?

week (15)

Melon: So want to get married now? please?

Magrat: Sure why not.

Ah look they’re wearing the outfits I made for them! Magrat’s dress changed shortly before the wedding took place.  I made the first one before seeing this dress on the sims 3 store.  I think it was part of a 1920’s style set that is on sale.  It looked so pretty on her.

week (18)

Miles: dearly beloved, we are gathered here today…

Magrat: Please don’t.

week (19)

Magrat: Um, is it too late to change me mind.

Yes, I want yellow babies.

Melon: I can’t tell you what I’m thinking right now. I would be arrested.

o_O

week (24)

ARGH! These sims drive me crazy.  I put benches, pretty benches AND THEY ALL STAND! 😡

I also need to change Maya’s formal wear.  I don’t think that is suitable now she is getting older.

week (25)

Miles: *sob* its so beautiful.

Well at least most of the guests realized what was going on.  Even if some of the are facing the wrong way.

week (26)

Melon: We are one. Always & forever.

Miles & Blueberry: *sob* That’s beautiful.

You are grown men for petes sake.  Pull yourselves together.

week (30)

Maya: I like the look of this guy. Can I haz?

No.

week (34)

I don’t know why I bothered with the benches. 😡 Not a single one of them sat on them.

week (39)

I can’t get over how great the dip kiss is.

week (46)

Melon: I would like to thank everyone for coming…

Crowd: CAAAKKKEEE

Magrat: Melon, sweetie, just cut the cake, they’re getting restless.

week (53)

Aw there first meal together as man & wife.  More importantly though, they are still in there wedding outfits!!!

week (59)

Blueberry: So er, this drink is good.

Zak: Yeah, it’s nice.

Melon: I like nuts!

Blueberry & Zak: o_O

week (64)

Magrat: I’m married, look I have the invisible wedding ring to prove it.

I really like that hair on her, I am pondering whether to make it permanent.

week (71)

I was going to go for a close up here but it just looked so pretty with the sunset and the snow.  (It’s halfway through spring in game)

week (76)

So glad that’s censored, I really don’t need to see that!

Melon: Then go somewhere else!

week (83)

How about the ongoing rocking chair war.  Guys there’s like two more on the porch.

Tobias: But I just got the butt rutt on this one the way I like it.

Magrat: Make this guy move, his junk is right in my eye line.

week (91)

Magrat: *swoon* I’m married, look.

Yes dearie I we all know, we were just at your wedding.

Tobias: Must sit in chair.

week (79)

Magrat then got board and played chess.

Magrat: Hmm, where to start.

week (89)

Magrat: Ooh I don’t feel well.  Was it something I ate?

week (92)

Nope. 😀 Baby number 1 is on it’s way.

Magrat: You’d better fish it out before I flush it.

You have no clue do you?

Melon & Magrat at Uni: Bonus Pics

I took so many pictures during Melon & Magrat’s time at Uni and many that I liked didin’t make the cut or left out as the chapter’s were getting too long.  So here are some extras for you to enjoy.

They should be in chronological order.  This first one is just adorable but I didn’t want too many of Melon looking at her.  I thought it might make him look like a creeper!

Chapter 3.4 Can We Make Him Yellow?

Hey there! It’s time for another chapter.  I had wanted to get this out sooner but I had an exam that needed to study for.  That was yesterday and I passed. 😀 Just 3 more to go now. 😦

Melon: Enough of this chatter, they aren’t here for you. 😡

I sense much anger in this one.

Anyway last time Melon and Magrat finished there first term at Uni.

Screenshot-91

Tobais: HI! Welcome home!

Yup Tobias is still going strong. 130 days old now.

Maya: When did these flowers change? I don’t remember giving my permission for this.

I don’t recall needing your permission.

Screenshot-97

Melon: Well here we are. What do you think?

Magrat: Oh I think I’m going to like it here. ❤

Screenshot-98

Oi stop that! He is out of bounds.

Maya: My babies, all grown up. I feel so old 😥

Nolan: Cheer up honey. When you are sad it is raining in my heart.

Melon: Dad, that was so cheesy.

On another note, do you like what I did to the living room?

Screenshot-99

Melon: So what do you think? Want to spend the rest of your life here?

Magrat: Sure, I’ve got nothing better to do.

Not the most romantic response.

Screenshot-104

Melon: If that’s the case then I have something for you.

Magrat: It had better not be a rocket.

Screenshot-107

Melon: How about a shiny instead.  Marry me?

Screenshot-109

Magrat: OK, why not.

Romance is not your strong point, is it?

Screenshot-112

Melon: This is nice ❤

Screenshot-140

It was at around this time that I noticed the plant sim, Sharon had come home with them and was listed as a non selectable household member. Not sure why. :/

Melon: Um, are you stalking me.  You know I’m engaged right?

Sharon: Well it was worth it shot

I was not able to get rid of her so I used Master controller to make her selectable and kick her out.  Make some plantsim babies please.

Screenshot-147

I had Melon take the aptitude test to see if could get any funding.

Melon: Oh I know this one, come on Melon think.  Red and Blue make …….

How did you get into Uni the first time. o_O

Screenshot-154

Melon did not get any extra funding.  They only needed 12 credits each to complete their degrees so I had them go for just one week. Aw look the whole family came out to see them off.

Tobias: This is messing with my rocking schedule.

Nolan: OMG he does get out of the chair! 😮

My thoughts exactly! 😀

Maya: Bye kids, have fun! Don’t forget to call

Melon: Mum, I’m a grown man. Quit it.

Magrat: I’m already tired of seeing your parents walking around in their undies.

Screenshot-165

Yet you have no problem walking around in yours?

Here they are back at Uni, in the same dorm. Check out Melon’s face, adorable

Screenshot-166

Melon: I have a cunning plan!

It seems his ‘cunning plan…

Screenshot-167

Is to scare the bejeebuz out of his fiancée.

Melon: Raaarrr! I’m a scary beast come to devour you!

In pink flowery boxers? Sure that’s scary.

Screenshot-171

After some synchronized eating with this guy which was cool to watch.

Magrat: You guys should join a circus!

Screenshot-175

It’s time for classes to begin.

Screenshot-176

Melon tries his hand at cooking afterwards.  His skill is at level 6 thanks to help from the tabcasts.

Melon: I’m so good I’m on fire!

Screenshot-177

Melon: Um, what’s that load ringing sound? Why is it so bright in here?

Give it a minute, you’ll figure it out

Screenshot-180

Melon: ARGH a fire. Put it out! Put it out!

There you go.

Derek: I’m too tired to be dealing with your shtick

Screenshot-182

Thank you Derek Khan! The firefighter showed up after the fire was out.  Damn useless the lot of them.

Melon: Oh your a lifesaver, I could kiss you.

Derek: Please don’t -_-

WomaninNightgown: I would pay good money to see that.

Screenshot-190

Classes continue.  Check out the young teacher, she has the attention of nearly the whole class!

Screenshot-192

Holy macaroni that oven is dirty.  How can you eat anything that comes out of that?!

Magrat: Like I have a choice?

The microwave? right there, on the counter? Or you know you could just I don’t know, CLEAN THE OVEN.

Screenshot-198

Ah yes this is when my makeover bug struck.  This is Derek Khan the guy that put the fire out.  I checked him out in CAS and he is hot.  Poor thing has to suffer at the hands of EA styling though.  But not for much longer. Drum roll please

Screenshot-199

Much better, he is actually better looking than I first thought.  Bad hair, clothes and eyebrows were doing nothing for him.  I have saved him and I am thinking of using him somewhere.

Derek: I feel pretty, oh so pretty.

Screenshot-200

 

Here is a close up shot of him after makeover.  It is a bit hard to make him out in the last picture.  Oh yes I definitely have a use for you.

Derek: Eeep

Screenshot-202

Melon: No I do not want to try any experimental drugs.  Stop asking me Uncle Zak!

Screenshot-208

Magrat takes to studying on her own.  I love her ❤

Magrat: Thanks, now kindly go bug someone else I need to cram for the finals.

Screenshot-226

Melon meanwhile becomes the yellow gnome’s second victim.

Melon: My beautiful face.

YellowGnome: Gnomes 2  Plebs 0

Screenshot-250

The week goes by quickly and both Melon and Magrat pass their exams.

Melon: Yay me! ❤

Screenshot-258

They celebrate of course!  Aren’t they a cute couple.

twit (3)

Melon: WOO perfect GPA! I am awesome!

Derek: Only a C, aww come on.

twit (9)

Magrat: That score is so good I could kiss it.

And that wouldn’t be weird at all.

So graduation comes round and due to past problems with sims not being able to get into the stadium in time I had them hang around outside beforehand. I only had to do it twice!

twit (35)

Melon: How about making him yellow? I’ve heard of yellow snow.

Magrat: o_O

twit (38)

This is the snowman they built.  I’ve never seen an evil one before, isn’t it cool.

Snowman: You try being evil with no mouth and twigs for arms.

If you have no mouth how are you talking?

Snowman: None of your business, move along now.

twit (41)

Well it was cool before Magrat did this. 😥

Melon: She’s so lovely, she’s so lovely!

Stop singing.

twit (42)

Skeleton: Don’t mind me, I can’t go in yet, I have no BODY to accompany me!

Magrat & Melon: *are unamused*

Skelton: Aww come on, that was pure gold

Fools gold more like.

twit (51)

Phew, they both graduated.  Melon got new trait of Artistic and Magrat got Mooch.  (both randomised)

You would not believe how long it took to get this photo.

So they both got their degrees and I can say goodbye to uni for a while.

twit (59)

Melon: Oooh I shouldn’t have had that second burrito at that service station. * stomach gurgles*

Magrat: I did warn you, piggy.

I shall end things with Magrat’s wedding outfit.  Well two really. There were two dresses I really liked on her.  One was used as her actual wedding outfit, let me know which one you like best, just for fun. I wouldn’t normally add a new outfit for borrowed sims but I wanted her to look special on her wedding day.  I hope the owner doesn’t mind.

twit (61) Screenshot-4

I had a request to rearrange this bit, I completely forgot last time.  Hope this is easier to understand now. 🙂

Chapter 3.3 Want to see my Rocket?

A couple of things before I start:

Firstly on the hub I have added a new section called Photo Album. This will contain bonus photos from each generation that did not get included in the original chapters.

Also on the Hub is a post with a selection of photos of my cat Teddy displaying his love of boxes and bags

Finally if you haven’t checked out the Winterton Adoptacy lately (why not?) then you won’t have seen the great video of Angelo strutting his stuff.

Melon: How can you write this much and not show a picture of my lovely self?

Quite easily.

Screenshot-45

Melon: That’s not me. 😡

No this is Magrat conjuring a poison apple which is causing her to go cross eyed.

Screenshot-51

Melon: Still not me. 😡

Pip down.  This is to demonstrate the attractiveness of Uni sims.  The girl is Tiffany Angles, she was lucky enough to get a makeover as her original outfit was atrocious. I am thinking of saving her to use later as a spouse.

Melon: For me?

No you have a girlfriend

Screenshot-54

Magrat: Melon, Honey when are we going to have kids?

Melon: Don’t rush things sweetie.  Wait a bit longer before you ruin your body with saggy boobs and stretch marks.

Magrat: 😡

Before the second week of classes started I sent Melon & Magrat on a date at the bowling alley.

Screenshot-57

Magrat: Be the Ball

Screenshot-58

Magrat: Being the ball sucks

Melon: This will be an easy win!

Screenshot-64

Melon: Boo Magrat sucks.

Magrat: Just wait until I get you home. 😡

Melon: 😥

Screenshot-66

Melon: Let me show you how a man bowls

*gutterball*

Screenshot-68

Magrat: XD

Screenshot-69

Magrat: Must not sneeze

Screenshot-71

Melon: I thought I would be better at this

Screenshot-77

Magrat: STRIKE! YES I WIN!!

Screenshot-84

That evening Melon went to a party where this man was the main event.

DudewithGlasses: If you men would kindly shove off.  This hottie and I have some unfinished business. ,-)

Screenshot-87

Melon: Uni sucks.

Ah that Monday feeling.  Classes start on the second week.  Melon is just crabby because he didn’t get much sleep after the party.

Melon: Who’s fault is that?

How old are you?

Screenshot-89

While I was waiting for Melon to get out of class I saw this.  It just looks like the girl in the green sweater is going to kick the girl in the pink hat.  She had great ball skills considering she’s wearing heals.

Screenshot-94

Melon: This stuff is good.

I am not letting them have one of these back at the house.  The last thing I need is alcoholic parents and neglected kids.

Melon: That’s what grandparents are for.

Screenshot-96

Oh look Magrat found the dorm’s gym.

Magrat: Did you have to show the picture where I fell?

Yes

Screenshot-100

Melon: NO I dropped my tablet.  My precious tablet.

Screenshot-105

Melon: Hey baby, want to see my rocket?

Screenshot-107

Ponytailgirl: Back off creep! I’m trained in sim fu.

Melon: Please don’t hurt me. I’m too young to die.

Screenshot-108

Matthew: WHAT DO WE WANT? NO IDEA! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOT A CLUE!

Screenshot-9

Magrat: I demand a close up.

You got it. 😀

Screenshot-29

After seeing that girl in front of the stadium I added a football (soccer ball if you’re american) into Magrat’s butt pocket.  She found it.

Magrat: It’s like magic. Things just appear in there, I have no idea where they come from.

Screenshot-43

Melon’s outdoor class.  This week they are sketching a bush.

Stripygirl: Have you heard about Melon? He told Kim he wants to show her his rocket!

Screenshot-56

Melon: OMG a party. I am there

Screenshot-66

Melon: Hmm, an unguarded bonfire.  I have just the thing.

Screenshot-67

*throws test tube. Hygiene plumets*

Screenshot-72

Sportydude: Are you done yet?

Melon: You can’t rush an artiste

Screenshot-76

Melon: My masterpiece. it is complete.

Sportydude: It’s amazing. *plus, plus*

End of the term and the report cards are in.

Screenshot-73

Magrat: How dare they give me less than perfect.

Screenshot-81

Melon: My score is a work of art.

They both passed but don’t yet have enough credits to graduate. On the plus side I went a whole chapter with no fails.

Chapter 3.2 A Cute Couple

Last time Melon took over as the torch holder, the quads grew up and Tobias got older.

Before I start I would like to share this picture of my cat Teddy and his lifelong obsession with cardboard boxes. This box now has three holes on each side.  I put a motorised toy in the box making it a great way for him to play on his own!

WP_20140902_015

Anyway enough of my adorable kitty, back to the Mendozas.  At the end of the last chapter Melon was headed for Uni.

shot (185)

Nolan: Bye son! Have fun!

Maya: He left 30 minutes ago. You can stop waving now.

Nolan: I’ll miss you son. *sobs*

Anyway moving on…

shot (186)

This is the dorm Melon is staying in and those girls are two of his dorm-mates.

Melon: I’m going to like it here!

You are not having those girls, I have someone better in mind.

shot (190)

I sent Melon to this cute little house where I have plopped a special sim just for him.

Melon: For me? You shouldn’t have.

Just get in there before I change my mind.

shot (193)

Back at the dorm Melon tries to bond with his housemates.  One of them is a plantsim! I have never seen one in game before so my reaction was ‘OMG A PLANT SIM! WANT ONE! WANT ONE!’

What great artist? Where?

I removed the dreaded Murphy beds and claimed the room for Melon.  I added an easel as painting helps with the fine arts degree he is studying.  The sketches are Melon’s own work.  He is very proud of them.

Classes continued throughout the week. On the wednesday Melon had this lecture.  As you can see it is riveting stuff!

This meanwhile is Magrat’s lesson.  I discovered she is studying business.  I like how they all set up near the toilets.  Many a failure and route fail were had during this lesson as normal library users tried to get to the toilets.

Note: The guy in the background with the green sweater is Richard Randall.  He is the sim I used as Nina’s husband in the Winterton Adoptacy.

Back at the dorms Melon is improving his painting skill while listening to the cooking tabcast on the multitab.  Best download ever from sims 3 store, if you haven’t got it I suggest you do pronto.

At this time Melon and Magrat’s relationship reset to freinds. I was not happy and was not prepared to loose her to story progression so I moved her in.

The first thing she did after ditching Travis in the dinning room was to head up to the top floor to do a presentation.

Magrat: and this explains why my children will be the cutest this legacy will ever see.

I just hope that your genetics end up on the kids.  I want yellow babies please.

At exams on the friday of the first week Magrat conjures a posioned apple and procedes to eat it before her next exam.  Naturally she passed out.  -5

They both passed their exams.  Melon’s progress bar was maxed out and he was on the dean’s list so I wasn’t worried but Magrat’s bar was on half filled when she went into her first exam so I am surprised she passed.

Melon: Nailed it!

You have another week to get through.
