Chapter 5.1 That Boy is Mine Now

 

 

 

Hey there! Told you another chapter wasn’t going to be far away.  My internet was on the friz last week so I played ahead a bit.

I have a job interview later today so I thought what better way to take my mind of it than writing another chapter. 😀

Well here we are at the start of Generation 5.  Susan takes over as the new torch holder.  Lucky did not complete her LTW but she did get to 27/35 which I think is a fair effort for a ISBI TH. There is only 3 sims in the house now, man it’s quiet.

First on Susan’s agenda is to find her spouse.

Screenshot (115)

Koi: I’m glad I found you, I have to talk to you.

Susan: Can you make it quick, I really need to pee.

Koi: OK, well I heard there’s a new family in town.  A mysterious voice told me this family are keen to meet you.

Susan: Um, ok. I guess it wouldn’t hurt to go say hi.

Screenshot (116)

So Susan heads out, travelling across town to meet this mysterious family.  Who could she be going to see.  Also I love this car. ❤

 

Screenshot (117)

Susan: Wow this place is huge!

Who lives in a house like this? (skip to 5.56 to hear the line)

 

Screenshot (118)

 

It’s the Dewdrops house! The Dewdrops are the stars of the Dripping with Idiots ISBI written by dewdropdizzy.

Susan: Hi, I’m Susan. I heard you wanted to meet me. *heartfarts*

Pinkhairedguy: Yes I did, I’m Toan.  *heartharts*

In case you haven’t guessed it yet Susan is here to choose a spouse.  I dropped four of them in the house for her to choose from.  Toan is the only one home at the moment though.

 

Screenshot (120)

Susan turns on the charm and gets to know Toan a little better.  Things got well but he is only interested in chatting not flirting.  Susan scores him a 10/10 but rolls no wishes for him.  We shall see how she fairs when the others come home.

I checked and she’s straight btw.

 

Screenshot (119)

Ah the others are arriving.  This is Holly, I included her incase Susan was bi or gay.  She’s so pretty, go make babies please.

 

Screenshot (121)

Following closely behind her are Max and Xiao.  Xiao was added for the same reason as Holly.  Ooh ooh look, Max is a werewolf! Susan get you butt over here and introduce yourself.

 

Screenshot (123)

Susan & Max *heartfart all over the hallway*

She scores him a ten as well but also rolls a wish to learn 2 of his traits straight after meeting him.  Looks like she has made her choice.

 

Screenshot (126)

 

Time to spam those romantic interactions.

Susan: You look like a tasty dish. ❤

 

Screenshot (127)

Susan: I picked these to match your hair. ❤

Max: Ooh! no one has brought me flowers before. ❤

 

Screenshot (129)

Ah Susan no! Too soon! Too soon!

Susan: *smooches*

 

Screenshot (130)

Max: What’s wrong with you? We’ve only just met.

Susan: 😦

 

Screenshot (132)

 

Screenshot (134)

We interrupt this bonding session for a graduation.

She graduates, blah, blah.

 

 

Screenshot (137)

Susan finds Max at a park after graduation and resumes the capture of her mate.  While she was graduating it appears this old lady was trying to get her claws into Max.

Oldlady: Hey, hands off. That boy is mine.

Susan: Not any more.

 

Screenshot (138)

First kiss. Cute ❤

 

Screenshot (141)

Yay! Susan gets her man!

 

Screenshot (143)

In true legacy tradition lets get them married while were at it.

 

Screenshot (147)

Susan: Let’s get married here.

Max: OK.

 

Screenshot (148) Screenshot (151)

YAY! I want cute werewolf babies at of you two.

 

Screenshot (153)

Lucky is now more painting slave.  That one looks too dark, try again.

Lucky: 😡

Max & Susan: *loud make out noises*

 

Screenshot (156)

Koi leave the nice cowplant alone.  (He spat her out.)

 

Screenshot (164)

Nope still too dark.

Lucky: Come on, have a heart. My mother just died.

Nah, do it again.

 

 

Screenshot (166)

Koi: *automonously cleans*

Lucky: *chained to easel until she gets it right*

 

Screenshot (169)

KOI LEAVE HIM ALONE!

 

 

Screenshot (171)

Seymour: *LOUD BURP*

He spat her out, again

 

Screenshot (174)

Oh dear lord we have another one

 

Screenshot (176)

Since Susan wished for it, we have Bonehilda! The first thing to be coloured in Susan & Max’s fav colours.

 

Screenshot-7

 

I redid the front of the house a little.  I will show it better when I do the house tour.

K-9: *defiles newly created front lawn.*

I think that’s as good a place as any to leave it.  Next time Susan and Max go on honeymoon and Lucky may get a painting done to my standards.

Chapter 4.13 Sparkle Possession

Well we have reached the end of another generation.  I will miss controlling Lucky and playing around with the PI career.

Anyway last time Lucky went around town solving cases and topped her career whilst she was at it, Magrat showed her evil trait A LOT and we got a doggie gnome.

Screenshot (1)

Koi has taken to protesting all the time.  She has not ranted about death though, thank goodness.  The gnomes seem to be the only ones who pay any attention to her though! XD

Screenshot (3)

Melon: So you must be close to dying by now.

Magrat: Well I am over a 100 years old but I don’t plan to go just yet.  I have a lot more evil deeds to do. >:)

Melon: That’s may girl. >:)

Screenshot (20)

Koi: GET YOUR LAZY BUTT UP AND GO TO SCHOOL!!

Romana: Mum, it’s 5am.  Let me sleep a bit longer.

Screenshot (24)

Lucky is still out solving cases.  She had to ask 3 people about someone and ran into Lisa.

Lisa: I wonder how rich this family is.

Screenshot (26)

She also took the chance to visit Rory and see how he’s getting on outside of the legacy house.

Rory: Can you believe my boss told me I can’t wear a bowtie to work.  He says they’re not cool.  😡

Lucky: Bowties are always cool!  Swimming near big red crosses however, totally not cool.

Screenshot (30)

Hey look how the girls came home from school with.  It’s Clover Winterton!

I used Romana’s teen action to flirt with him to see what they would they would do.  It failed though as he already has a girlfriend.

Screenshot (33)

Charlotte: Oh this is perfect, Lucky just stand there, this is the perfect shot.

Lucky: Bye.

Screenshot (34)

Lucky is now searching the Winterton house for clues.  I am really glad I saved this house.  I love it. ❤

Screenshot (36)

Lucky: Ah ha! I knew they were no good.  Look at all these plants, must be drugs.

No, there tomatoes.  Your in Eddie’s garden.

Screenshot (39)

After solving her 27th case there is no more time left and it’s time for Romana and Susan to grow up.  It’s also Lucky’s birthday so she throws a party to celebrate.

Screenshot (40)

Hey look who finally found the football I put in her inventory.  She actually managed to get to level 5 in athletic all on her own.

Screenshot (41)

Look party guests!

Ready Brek: I got a new car! 😀

Clover: Why wasn’t I born into this family.

24HourSpar: *walks into lamp post*

Hold up, what’s that lady carrying…

Screenshot (43)

Chocolate gnomes! Awesome.

Screenshot (48)

Onto the birthdays Lucky goes first.

Screenshot (50)

Lucky: *is possesed by sparkles*

Lee: I really don’t want to be here. *awkward smile*

Screenshot (51)

Lucky: *ker-sag*

Dear Llamas not that hair.

Screenshot (42)

Romana is next.

Romana: This is the most exciting day of my life.

Screenshot (56)

She looks pretty much the same.

Susan: I’m the new torch holder, look at me now.

Lee: Ew, no way.

Romana: Hurry up sis, I really need to pee.

Screenshot (61)

Susan: YAY BIRTHDAY!!

Screenshot (64)

Ooh pretty.  Oh and I made the woman who brought the cool choccy gnomes a vampire.

Screenshot (65)

MAKEOVER TIME! Here’s Lucky as an elder.  I don’t think she looks that different.

Screenshot (68)

Here’s Romana, she’s now a supernatural skeptic and her LTW is Dynamic DNA Profiler.

Screenshot (67)

I failed to get a CAS shot of Susan but here’s her makeover.  I really like her, great choice everyone! Her last trait is Disaplined and her LTW is Physical perfection.

Screenshot (76)

As the new torch holder her first action is to introduce herself to most important person in the house, me! Also I’m a genie now, genies are cool!

Charlotte: Nice to meet you.  Your house is flithy.

Susan: *rolls wish for bonehildla.*

Screenshot (78)

Suddenly the camera is swung across the room to where Magrat as dying.

Rory & Lee: *le gasp*

Charlotte: Look I can fly now!

Koi: Do you have to die now, I want to eat my cake. 😦

Screenshot (80)

Koi: Hello, I cant mourn, Ready Brek is in the way!

He’s behind you, how is he in the way exactly?

Screenshot (83)

Death: Wow, I’m not used to large crowds.

Screenshot (86)

Death: *deap breath* Magrat Mendoza your time is up! now get in the damn urn.

Magrat: Ok no need to rush me.

Susan: Oh it’s Magrat’s ghost.

Screenshot (96)

Everyone: Magrat’s dead

Lee: *not caring*

Screenshot (99)

Death: I am awesome! 😀

Lucky: This room is beautiful.

Susan: I’m in charge now.

Rory: Ha ha! What are you wearing sis! XD

Lee: Boo! Romana sucks.

Screenshot (103)

So Magrat is reunited with Melon in the basement. Come out and haunt soon, ‘kay.

Screenshot (105)

Really? Right after a death? Who would do such a thing?

Screenshot (106)

Of course, it’s you two.  I swear ever party I invite them to they end up woohooing at.

Screenshot (108)

Romana: For me? Wow thanks mum. ❤

Lucky: Yeah, Happy birthday.  Now get out.

Screenshot (110)

So Romana leaves the house and is left at the mercy of story progression.

Speaking of which lets end on some notifications.

Winterton Adoptacy – New Rules

So in an earlier post I said I was thinking of combining the Winterton Adoptacy  with the Through History challenge for the remainder of this legacy.  I have had a read of the rules and have decided that since adoption is not allowed in the earlier generations to just skip them. This means I wont be doing tribal, medieval or pioneer.  Instead I will start with the Victorian era.  Harmony will be a teen soon so I will start after her birthday.  The family will move to a new. Not sure if this will be in Barnacle Bay or in a new town yet.  I may do something to choose this at random.  So the following will be my rules, I will not be playing for points.

Each generation I will redecorate the house to fit the era and also dress the family accordingly.

Generation 5 – Victorian Era

Male sims are required to work a full-time job of their choice.

Female sims are permitted to  work as cooks, nurses/doctors, journalists, muscians, teachers, or daycare workers. Unmarried sims are to remain as chaste as possible – “kiss” and “shy kiss” should only be used between engaged or married sims, while “woohoo” and “makeout” are reserved solely for married couples. Sims may now complete opportunities offered by the game.

Since in Victorian times women traditionally didn’t do things like DIY Harmony’s husband will do this.  Harmony will take on a homemaker role.  She will start a new kitchen garden and only get a job if she rolls a wish for one of the careers above.

Generation 6 – 1920

As the start of the sexual revolution, this generation is in for a treat! Once the eldest child has reached young adulthood, this generation will begin. It’s once again up to you to redesign your lot – bring your sims one step closer to the future by dressing them appropiately. If your budget allows, it’s reccomended to redecorate your home. Male sims are required to work a full-time job of their choice. Female sims are required to work as cooks, nurses/doctors, journalists, muscians, teachers, or daycare workers. Although all interactions are now allowed, regardless of marital status, female sims who become pregnant are required to marry before the baby is born. If they fail to do so they will be required to move off of the lot and will be disowned by the family. Sims may complete oppurtunities offered by the game.

Generation 7 – 1950

Things settle down for the sims of this generation – there’s a new found sense of family for your sims.  Male sims are required to work a full-time job of their choice. Female sims are required to stay at home, unless they wish to pursue a career in the music or acting industry. Although all interactions are now allowed, regardless of marital status, female sims who become pregnant are required to marry before the baby is born. If they fail to do so they will be required to move off of the lot and will be disowned by the family. Sims may complete opportunities offered by the game.

Generation 8 – 1970

The 1970s is where a lot of groups fought hard for equality. Woman may have a hard time progressing in fields such as Politics, business, law or science if they try to progress to high since these are still predominately male orientated careers.

Male sims are required to work a full-time job of their choice.  Female sims are allowed to persue a career as cooks, nurses/doctors, journalists, muscians, teachers, musicians, actress or daycare workers.  They can get low level jobs easily in science, law, business and politics by will find it harder to get promotions to the higher levels.

Sims may complete oppurtunities offered by the game

Generation 9 – Present Day

For the first time both male and female sims are allowed to get a job in any field and take an equal role in looking after the home and any children.

Sims may complete opportunities offered by the game

Generation 10 – The future

This generation will probably live in Lunar lakes as it looks very futuristic.  Most families in the future have their own plumbot and this family will be no different.  The house can be redecorated to include all the new gadgets the future has to offer.

Sims of both genders may find a job in any field.

Sims may complete opportunities offered by the game.

I am really looking forward to doing this as I think it will be really interesting. I hope anyone reading this will find it interesting to follow.

Chapter 4.12 How to Make Friends

Hello ladies and jellyspoons! 🙂 It’s time for another chapter.

First though for those who haven’t seen it, I know WP reader can be a pain at times.  Chapter 5.1 of the Winterton Adoptacy is up.  Click here to go and read it.

Right then last time Lucky learnt to walk on water, Seymour the Cowplant tried to eat Rory and Koi and Rory grew up.

Before I start the chapter proper I wanted to share Rory’s full wardrobe with you all as I had so much fun designing it.

Rory's wardrobe

Rory: Wow there’s 5 of me! When do I get to meet the others.

Oh sweetie there’s only one of you.  This is called using Paint + cut and paste! Photo editing at it finest. 😀

Screenshot-147

Magrat: You’re going down.

Snowman: I am already depressed, can’t you leave me be.

Screenshot-148

I guess not.

Screenshot-150

Magrat: My work here is done.

Ha ha I love how it looks like the Grim snowman has come to reap the soul of the one Magrat just destroyed! XD

Screenshot-152

Oh look the family has discovered they live on the beach.  I am hoping they make better use of this in summer.

Koi: Splashy, splashy

Screenshot-155

Yeah, I really need to put a bathroom down here. -5

Screenshot-156

Magrat: Dear watcher, something smells.

That my dear would be you.

Magrat: You should learn to be nicer to your elders.

You should stop acting so stupid and go take a shower!

Screenshot-157

Just a pic of Rory is his underwear to tell you he is being kicked out.  He is available for download in the usual place.

Screenshot-159

Bye Rory!

Screenshot-161

Koi: Heavenly Llamas this place is beautifully decorated!

Well I do try

Screenshot-167

Of course our resident alchy is the first to find the bar. XD

Koi: I caught it, on the first try.  I never knew I had such hidden talents.

Screenshot-169

 

Meanwhile Lucky is still out solving cases.  Love this pic, Pom looks high! XD

Screenshot-176

Lucky got invited to a party at Tina Talisman’s house.  It was a small affair, Lucky and Pom where the only guests.  Lucky had to ask three sims about something connected to a case anyway. Pom however, just appears to laughing at Tina’s decision to dress in her undies at the party.

Twits (3)

When she gets home. (yes I do let her go home on occasion!) She discovers the reporters are clones.

Lucky: They look the same, they dress the same.  It’s creepy.  Make them go away.

Can do *reset sim*

Lucky: Thank you. ❤

Twits (5)

Lucky is only home as she needs to eat at the bistro to complete a case and it is 2am. The bistro doesn’t open again till 11am so Lucky is building her logic skill.  This pic also shows that I put blinds in the study.

Twits (6)

This is the bathroom I added in the basement.  I later added a laundry hamper.

Twits (7)

LOL even if death cats are jerks.  Coco came out just to sleep in K-9’s bed! XD

Twits (18)

Lucky: Is that guy a werewolf?

Yup. Cameron is the first supernatural in town.  The first of many.  I am randomly changing sims every so often.  I like a bit of diversity in the town.

Lucky is on her way to the bistro by the way.

Twits (19)

While she is inside I watch other sims passing by.  Rham’s face here made me laugh.

Rham: They did things, I will never be the same again.  Please don’t let me go back to that place.

Poor Rham is not having a great time.  He is still single aswell.  Come on Rham I want green babies.

Twits (26)

Lucky is at the Winterton house checking the mail for clues.  Little Lotus clearly doesn’t care and would rather play with her IF doll.

A quick intermission I like to call ‘Magrat’s guide to making friends’

Twits (13) Twits (16) Screenshot-163 Screenshot-68Screenshot-93

 

Screenshot-61

 

Just Lucky doing another stakeout.  Looks like Mighty-Bison and Menthol are up to something.

 

 

Screenshot-62

Mighty: I thought there was something odd about that bush.

Menthol: It’s so unfair. Why do I have to be the one who gets caught. 😦

Lucky, wouldn’t it have been better to wait until they left before getting up?

Screenshot-56

 

Oh yes while Lucky was doing her stakeout I noticed this on the front of city hall.  A little Sims 4 easter egg.  Neat huh?

Screenshot-95

Lucky solve a case for her son Rory bringing her total up to 25/35.

 

 

Screenshot-96

Which also pushes her job performance to level 10!  Yay +10 This is her new work outfit btw.

Lucky Lvl 10 Screenshot-97

Romana: Tofu dogs, food of vegetarian kings!

But there is a fridge full of leftovers.

Screenshot-98

Lucky visits the police station to get her next case so I take the opportunity to dump these things.

Screenshot-100

Reaching the top of her career doesn’t mean Lucky gets to take it easy.  I want to see how close I can get to that LTW before Susan’s birthday.

Screenshot-102

Proof that Magrat does have a softer side.

Screenshot-103

Romana: This chair smells funny. like someone peed on it.

Then sit somewhere else.

Screenshot-105

Lucky needed to hack someone’s computer so I sent her to the library as it was closer.  She chose to sit at a desk on the top floor. -_- Seriously, that building has 4 floors. It takes so long to get up there.

Screenshot-107

Lucky: These clothes are disgustingly clean.

Screenshot-115

Lucky then heads to the beach to interview Tam.  Meg Zale is playing in the ocean behind them.

Screenshot-118

Clearly there is something Lucky doesn’t like about Tam.

Lucky: I don’t trust this one. She knows too much about Mum’s family and Dad’s love of rockets.

The less said about Melon’s love of rockets the better.

Screenshot-123

 

I have to end it here as I have too many pictures plus I have no time left to write.  I shall end with this cluster of gnomes featuring a new doggie one. 😀

See y’all next time!

Repolulation of Roaring Heights (part 2)

Ok, I finally got round to adding more simmies to the town. So sit back, relax and let me introduce them all.

First up we have these three from Jax’s Insanity Doesn’t Compare.

sims (4)

The girls at the front are Cyprus and Drover and the pink haired guy behind them is Frostee. It was so hard to narrow it down as I love them all. ❤

Next up is a sim I made.

sims (2)

This is Cassandra Everhart.  She’s a fairy even though her wings are not showing.

Cassandra: I’m the only fairy in town though.

Working on it.

This next one is more of an addition to an already existing family.

sims (1)

Met Alicia Shafer.  She is Raquel’s daughter.  I couldn’t find her when I added Raquel which annoyed me as I love her. ❤ Better late than never, eh.

Right who’s next? Oh yes. The following two sims are from Different Winters by LilyShadowWriter

Screenshot-50

This is Marina Winters

Screenshot-51

And this is…ugh, sims….hang on a bit

*cheesy hold music*

Screenshot-52

That’s better. 🙂 This is Reed Winters.  I had wanted to add James and Candice but they refused to install properly so I choose these two instead.

Reed: Nice to know we were wanted.

Aw but you are, now go make cute babies please.

Next we have a lovely lady from the Zale ISBI by Heather

sims (7)

This is Meg. I picked her because she is so pretty.

OK, next up we have 4 randomly chosen sims from the Maloney WYDC by somebodysangel13

Screenshot-178

L to R we have Kyra, Elliot, Mance, Cameron.  I have put them in one of my favourite houses in Roaring Heights so we may be visiting them at some point. It’s a two level apartment with a pool! It’s awesome!

Next up are two sims from Huggs for the Insane by Phycracker93

Screenshot-109 Screenshot-94

Chosen to hopefully spread their genetics throughout the town are Mighty-Bison (top) and Guile (bottom).  I believe Guile is (at the time of writing) in a relationship with Okra Cabernet.  He’s a fast worker! 😀

I did also add Wesker & Bowser Bedlam from the Bedlam ISBI by Umbramuse but I seem to have lost the picture I had of them.  I will add another when I can.

Right now on to the best part, simselfs! YAY! 😀

sims (3)

First up we have Nate Phycracker93 writer of Huggs for the Insane and Jax writer of Insanity Doesn’t Compare, And then it Rained and the Terrey family Legacy.  I made them a couple as they are married IRL.

sims (5)

These three are Samali writer of the Maloney WYDC and the Rouke Epic Legacy, Rad writer of Dayes of our Lives and LilyshadowWriter writer of Different Winters

sims (6)

And this three forming an orderly queue are Autumnrain writer of the Winters ISBI and A Simple Life, Heather writer of the Zale ISBI,  and Umbramuse writer of the Bedlam ISBI

I think that’s everyone, phew.  There is another very special family still to add.  They won’t appear in town till Susan takes the reins though.  Don’t want SP stealing them!

New chapter will be up very soon.  House tour is delayed as the game keeps crashing on me and I loose motivation to redo the work on the house.  I will have to redecorate for the next gen soon anyway.

Ideas for the Winterton Adoptacy

Hi there, just wanted to share my thoughts with you all concerning an idea i’ve had for the Winterton Legacy.

When Danablu died I thought that was the end and I started to look at other challenges to try.  I did come across one I hadn’t heard of before that sounded interesting. It’s called Through History.  I figured it would also be a great way to show off some of the amazing CC/store content that is available that I for one rarely use.

In the end though the Wintertons didn’t end.  Harmony became the next heir and the legacy continued. (thanks to all who voted btw!)

The thing is though I keep thinking about that challenge.  It is so different and I would love to give it a go.  I think running three legacies at the same time is a bit too much though!! That’s where my amazing idea comes in.

I thought what if I combine the adoptacy and the new challenge into one.  Obviously I would condense it to fit in with the remaining generations.  I would probably do Tribal, Medieval, Victorian, 1920s, 1970s or 1980s and finish back in the present day.

What do you think? Let me know your thoughts.

Chapter 4.11 The One with Many Stakeouts

I hope you all liked the special post on new residents of the town.  I have more to add including specially chosen sims for Susan to choose from for a spouse and simselves!

Now on with the show! Last time Magrat retired, Martha grew up and was kicked out and the family moved to Roaring Heights.

Let’s kick things off with a rare sight, Magrat automonously praticing writing.

Screenshot-14

Nice to see you out of the rocking chair.

Magrat: Got to keep my brain active.

I’m not going to stop you, good on you for being a smart sim. She did gain 2 points in writing. 😀

Screenshot-16

Lucky meanwhile is breaking into someone’s house.  Should you be doing that?

Lucky: What do you want me to do they aren’t home?

Oh I don’t know, come back when they are home!

Lucky: Where’s the fun in that?

Screenshot-18

Back at home Susan finds the drum kit.  She got interupted by K-9 so didn’t gain any points.

Screenshot-20

Koi: GET YOUR LAZY BUTT OUT OF THAT BED!!!

Rory: But mum, it’s a Saturday.  😦 *hides under covers*

Screenshot-28

Magrat: When is this dishwasher going to be fixed. I’m too old to keep traipsing over the bathroom to do the dishes.

Rory: Relax gran, I’ll clean them for you.

Magrat: Such a good boy. Still got it! 😀

Rory: What was that gran?

Magrat: Oh nothing >:D

Oh great plumbob in the sky someone’s actually doing the laundry.

Susan: Well if I am taking over as head of this family I want a clean house.

Good luck with that.

Screenshot-34

Lucky: What is this thing? It’s slimey and it stinks of fish.

That’s a fish, it tends to be what you catch when you go fishing.

Lucky: Well I don’t like it. I don’t want to fish anymore. 😡 *rolls wish to catch 10 alley catfish*

XD

After her brief burst of skilling earlier Magrat returns to her favourite spot, the basement.  It’s a little sweet and sad at the same time that she almost always chooses to sit where Melon’s portrait is visible.

Screenshot-36

Did I mention how much I love you. ❤

Susan: 🙂

Screenshot-38

Evilgnome: This one shall be sacrificed to the dark lord.

Voldermort?

Evilgnome: Don’t play games with me.  I have more power in my little finger than you do in your whole body. >:D

*kicks over*

Evil: NO, you have found my one weakness. 😥

Susan + evil gnome

I love the moodlet that she got from this!

Screenshot-46

Um Lucky, is that the safest spot to do that from?

Lucky: I have to keep a good distance away or I will be spotted.

Not my point but carry on.

Back at home Koi and Magrat are bonding over snowman building.  They built a grim one. I like it.

Magrat: I don’t it reminds me how old I am.  I just want to live long enough to see my great grandchildren born.

Screenshot-53

Back with Lucky she is staking out a fishing spot.

Lucky: This guy is very suspicious, I’d better keep a close eye on him.

This makes me wish there were seasonal stakeout disguises.  Seeing a sim dressed as a snowman or a scarecrow during a stakeout would have been so funny.

Screenshot-54

Magrat: Maybe we should go inside, I’m freezing my butt off out here.

Koi: I agree, I can’t feel my feet any more.

I swear they will never wear the appropriate clothes outside.

Screenshot-61

Back with Lucky…

Lucky: I have a good feeling about this one.  He’s going to crack any second now.

Screenshot-62

Seymour: I heard it’s your birthday soon, here I got you a present.

Rory: Ooh I like cake. Gimme.

Screenshot-66

RORY NO!!! BAD COWPLANT!! 😡

Reporter: LOL he got eaten! XD

Screenshot-68

Seymour: >:D *Loud Burp*

Screenshot-69

Seymour: *spits back out*

Oh thank goodness. *Breathes out*

However immediately afterwards….

Screenshot-70

KOI DON’T YOU DARE!!

Seymour: Don’t listen to her, I won’t hurt you.

Screenshot-75

Argh Seymour! You are on thin ice.

Screenshot-77

Seymour: Fine have her back then.

Oh I can breath again.  Why couldn’t you have eaten the reporter?

Screenshot-78

Koi: THE DISHWASHER IS STILL BUSTED!!

Magrat: Oh my plumbobs! I am tired of this.

It’s not just you,  Koi’s new hobby is scaring everyone

Screenshot-79

At least Romana is being more productive.  Logic skill point gained. 😀

Screenshot-80

Lucky is writing a stakeout report as her promotion bar is almost full.

Lucky Lvl 9

Yeah level 9! 😀 She is up to 21/35 on her LTW. I doubt she will get there but I have her solving cases round the clock using the families motive mobile.  She might top her career though.

Screenshot-90

One of these things is not like the others.

Screenshot-91

I love this town, so pretty.

Screenshot-92

Lucky is here to interview this woman, Adriana Andrews.  She is a little busy flirting with Basil Cabernet though!

Lucky: Well this is awkard.

Screenshot-95

Lucky: Woot! Am I done now?

Nope, of to the police station to get another case.

Screenshot-98

Rhamnus: Oh it’s the heir.  Can I haz.

Oh Rhamnus I wish you could but I already have someone picked out for her.

Rhamnus: 😦

Screenshot-100

Hey look my boyfriend’s simself crashed the party.

I forget why Jan and Rhamnus fainted.

Screenshot-102

Susan: Sweet.

Koi: Hi Martha!

Screenshot-103

Hey look I got all four siblings in one shot.

Screenshot-106

Romana: 😳

And you guys were doing so well. -5

Screenshot-110

See what I mean.  Even heavily pregnant Angela is in this bar.  I think the black haired woman on the stool is also pregnant.

Lucky is here interviewing for another case.

Angela: She’d better not be after my man.

I don’t think you have to worry about that!

Screenshot-113

Oh hey look it’s the Winterton family.

Lucky: There seems to be a problem here.  I can’t talk to them.

That would be the steep slope.

Screenshot-115

Lucky moves on and continues her PI work.  Which includes checking for clues in the Winters rubbish.

Lucky: I hope no one sees me.

Screenshot-118 Screenshot-121

LOL Magrat set of a prank! XD

Magrat: Damn kids.

Screenshot-123

GuyinHat: Something’s a bit fishy about that bush.

Screenshot-125

Magrat is skilling again.  This time on the keyboard.  I love when they actually do something productive.

Screenshot-126

Rory, what about the stove?

Rory: Time for school

But the stove, Rory?

Rory!

Screenshot-127

Lucky: Don’t worry I got this.

Thanks Lucky ❤

Screenshot-128

Koi’s second favourite hobby!

Screenshot-132

Magrat: I really love this chair but I gotta pee.

Please use a bathroom. Maybe I should add a bathroom to the basement.

Screenshot-134

Magrat: Sorry, couldn’t make it.

How about we end on a positive note, like Rory’s birthday

Screenshot-135

Rory: Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me!

Screenshot-138

Rory: I wish for freedom, sweet freedom.

That I can grant.

Screenshot-141

Oh Rory, look at yourself.  I’m sorry but you need a makeover.

Screenshot-144

Well here’s what you could have won! XD Damn he’s hot.  His final trait is Exicitable and his LTW is Monster Maker.

Must concentrate. Must resist staring at photo. Not resisting well.

I want to show you Rory’s full outfit as I had so much fun designing it.  The pattern is used on all his outfits.
