Idiots do it their way


Chapter 6.11 The Race is On

Last time Rickon met Shawna and had a quick romance followed by a kitchen wedding.  Also Storm appealed for votes by taking up guitar and piano. Some other stuff happened but that’s not important enough to mention here.

Rickon: My super styling skills are deemed unimportant? 😡

In this case yes.

Ricko Un: That’s

Storm: *interupts* I was mentioned in the intro? Does that mean I get the heirship?

There has to be a vote first.

Susan is still frozen, Rickon is still out working and her needs are dropping fast.

As I don’t want Susan to die on me (as pretty as the ghost would be) I used Wolverine’s child action to thaw her out.

Wolverine: I will help you nana.

Wolverine: Is she frozen again?

No she’s just passed out.  Being frozen for that long sapped her energy.

Wolverine: Aw come on.  Is this the thanks I get for helping. 😡

Susan: You try being frozen all day.

Wolverine: I’ve tried watching it once does that count?

Just a pic of three dogs. I probably had a good reason for taking it but I have no idea what that was.

Shaggydog: I’m just happy to be included. ❤

Shawna: That filled me up so much. I’m feeling sleepy.

Mulberry: I still don’t understand why I even need sleep still.  I’m a frigging ghost!

I realised Jubilee wasn’t home from school so I went out to find her.  She was at the school doing her homework.  This poor kid came out of the school while I was watching.

It was only when I gave the kid a makeover I realised it was a girl.  Her name is Kenyatta Capp, she is the daughter of Toan Dewdrop making her Jubilee’s cousin.  Shame I can’t control Jubilee to make them friends.

Seymour: Master your home. *sniff sniff*

Seymour: *eats Rickon* Omnomnom


Rickon: Bad cowplant.

Seymour: Sorry 😥

Meanwhile inside Shawna is pregnant.

Max: Another one?

Rouge hadn’t come home after visiting a friends house.  I found her sitting outside the city hall.

Following their marriage I have Rickon paint Shawna’s portrait.

Rickon: This will be my best work.

I reserve judgement until you complete it.

Susan: *doesn’t come in and freezes again*

Rickon: Don’t worry I got this.

Rickon did unfreeze her but I failed to get a photo.

Rickon: Despite that interruption I finished my painting.  Brilliant isn’t it?

Hang on let me get a better angle. *rotates camera*

Rickon: Well?

It’s not terrible.

Rickon: But?

It’s got great either.

Rickon: Are the words ‘Do that again’ heading in my direction?

Yes but later, you have a party to organise for the quads.

Shawna: *passes out*

I really need to change her maternity wear.

Later that morning.

Storm: What’s going on?

It’s the quads birthday.  After this the heir poll will go up.

Storm: Why bother? We both know I’m going get the heirship.

Until the votes are in it could be anyone.

Storm: What about the new baby?

No that one is not up for heir.  Now just enjoy the party, they are still your siblings.

Storm: I’ll try. Might win some votes by showing I am supportive. The race is on!

*rolls eyes*

Storm: Woo! Birthday!

Gambit: I’m already tired of her.

Rouge: I hear you.

Starla: Why did I even bother to come.  I can’t stand being in the same room as Rickon.

Um, your children?

First up is Rouge.

Rouge: Go me! 😀

Ooh pretty. Her new trait is Supernatural Skeptic.

I missed the before shot but Wolverine is next.  That hair reminds me of Melon.   His new trait is No sense of humour

Gambit is next.

Gambit: YAY!

Gambit: Well that was fun.

His new trait is Social butterfly.

Last but by no means least Jubilee

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Her new trait is Evil. That is always fun! 😀

Here are Rouge and Jubilee’s makeovers.

I love how Rouge turned out.  She might be my favourite of the girls.

Jubilee has a different look to her but I still think she’s pretty.  I just realised I forgot her glasses though.

Jubilee: Can’t I just say I got contacts?

The next time I loaded the game to do the boys makeovers I got this message.

Will I get this save working? Will the quads grow up and get their makeovers?

Join me next time to find out the answers to these and more.




Chapter 6.10 A Second Chance

Hello dear readers, I’m back and I have a new chapter for you all! Yes I know what you are thinking.

Real life has a nasty habit of getting in the way of Sims.  Over the last 3 to 4 months I have been very ill and have had to be admitted to hospital a couple of times.  I am recovering nicely now so I will try to get more chapters out.  I do have one major distraction though and here she is.

This is my 1 year old daughter.  She is adorable and keeps me very busy.

That’s enough about me.  Let’s get on with what we are all here.  Last time *goes back to check as it’s been so long*. Rickon was asked on a date by his Aunt, Storm had her teen birthday and the kids found the new playground.

We kick things off this time with the family getting to know the new maids.

Max: I must be more tired than I thought, I am seeing double

Also the maids are not exempt from the bedtime story curse.

Rickon in particular seems to really like this one.  Her name is Shawna Chapman and he is rolling wish after wish for her.

Rickon: I think you are hot ❤

Shawna: *Swoons*

Gambit proves that not all of this family are complete idiots. Good boy Gambit.

I love this picture, it looks like Rickon is telling Storm off for something. He is actually telling the woman in the bed that she is behaving inappropriately. Storm is just having a freak out.

Storm then takes it upon herself to learn the guitar and ends up building her skill to level 3 on her own.

Storm: No need for the heir poll, we both know it should be me. 😀

Sorry sweetie it doesn’t work like that.

Rickon is chained to the sketching table when he has nothing else to do.

Rickon: *cancels action* I have a better idea.

Really? Do tell.

Rickon: *throws elixer at Shawna* Presto instant best friends!

Shawna: Person person plus

Rickon: Now that our friendship bars are full, love me. ❤

Storm: Stupid kids, always in my way. 😡

After some romantic spam Shawna and Rickon share their first kiss. ❤

Jubilee: Dad is the maid my new mum?

Rickon: *too busy smooching*

Rickon: Want to go steady?

Shawna: Sure why not.

Jubilee. Dog


Rickon: Since we are on a roll, marry me?

Shawna: Gasp! It’s so shiny.

Since she is already on the hook I decide to make things official. They have a private wedding in the kitchen/dinning room.

I gave her a makeover.  I love her, she’s so pretty.  Welcome to the family Shawna

When I get time to update the downloads page I will add her to it.

Sorry Rickon but I can’t let you finish that.

Rickon: Why not? It’s going to be my finest work.

Don’t care. *scraps*

Gambit welcomes Shawna to the family the best way he knows how.

Gambit: Hi new mum.  I need a bedtime story stat.

Shawna; OK kid.

Gambit: Sorry that one didn’t work.  I am going to need another.

Shawna: When do they grow up?

Three days time.  Just bear with.

Someone asked Max on a date and I accidentally clicked yes.

Whoever it was stood him up anyway.  I think he found the snow much more interesting anyway.

Max: What’s all the white stuff?

Beast: You must be new here.  I would like breakfast at 6am, fresh tuna only please. Served on a plate like the cats on TV, not a yucky bowl like the dog.

Rickon: Please don’t throw this one away. 😥

I approve of this one, continue

Rickon: 😀

Shawna managed to find the right bed on the first try on her own!! Did I mention I love her.

I changed the aqua to spiceberry which is Shawna’s fav colour.  I am not doing the rest of the house.

Rickon: Why am I the only one in this house who does these jobs.

That’s the joy of being an ISBI TH sweetie.

Rickon: Can I resign?

No but don’t worry it won’t be for much longer.

This is what Shawna has to put up with constantly.  Her needs are constantly low as everyone wants to talk to her all the time.  The joys of the irresistible trait in an ISBI.  I may have to change it if things don’t improve.

Susan leaves the comfort and safety of the rocking chairs to play on the trampoline.

Susan: Wheee!

Things prove too much for poor Rickon and he hits the bar.

Nolan: Ew a werewolf.

Max: Ew a ghost.

Melon: Hi! 😀

First day of school for the kids.  All these snow days are annoying.

Rickon is out styling the town again.  This lady is his first victim customer.

Rickon: Have you looked in a mirror lately?

Rickon: My work here is done.

Next is this guy who has the unfortunate name of Elbert.  Starla was here too, I am unsure if she lives here or is just visiting.

Elbert: Hey you’re good.  Thanks mate ❤

Starla: I have to get out of here.

While Rickon was out this happened.  I could only watch as poor Susan’s needs steadily dropped.

That’s all for this time.  Will Rickon get home in time to save his mother? Will the bedtime story curse ever end?

Find out next time.

Thanks for reading. Bye for now.

A Liebster Award Appeared!

I’m sorry to anyone expecting a new chapter.  Our computer is currently without screen and keyboard as my boyfriend is upgrading my parents computer.  He is nearly done so normal service should resume shortly.

Ha ha! XD Sorry couldn’t resist! XD

Anyway this post is because once again the Liebster Award is doing the rounds.

I have been nominated by Earthqueenami of the Kanto Legacy for this award. It’s always nice to be appreciated so…

The Rules

I think everyone knows these by now but here are they are anyway.

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer the 11 questions the person asked you
  3. Nominate other bloggers
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions of your own

Questions for Earthqueenami

  1. If you could live anywhere in the world besides where you live now, where would you choose?
    • That’s a tough one.
    • Ok I am going to be really dull and choose somewhere that is in the same country that I live in.  If I could live anywhere I would choose Scotland.  I went there on holiday a couple of years ago and it is just beautiful.
  2. What is your favorite song right now? What song annoys you the most?
    • Being the mother of a 1 year old it difficult to think of a song that isn’t for children! XD So I shall just say the song I am currently listening to which is Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm. Oh how I love Spotify.
  3. If you could only eat foods from one of the five food groups for the rest of your life, which group would you choose?
    • I am currently on a light diet to add in my recovery after my time in hospital and since I am eating a lot from this group anyway I will say vegetables, legumes and beans.  I love veggies anyway so that works quiet well for me. 😀
  4. What’s your favorite scary movie?
    • I am not really a big fan of scary movies.  The closest one I can think of is a film I have loved since I was a child.
    • I still watch it and I love it! ❤
  5. Which period in history fascinates you the most and why?
    • I would have to say without a doubt the Tudors.  What’s not to love? Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, The dissolution of the monasteries, Mary Queen of Scots, The Spanish Armada.  I love it all, it’s just so fascinating.
  6. What’s your favorite thing to do on a night out with your friends?
    • I have a toddler so my favourite thing to do in the evenings is flake out in front of the TV after she has gone to sleep! I am such an exciting person, aren’t I! XD
  7. If you could marry any fictional character, which would it be and why?
    • The Flash. You would never be late for anything!! XD
  8. Which Disney princess is/was your favorite? How about the princes?
    • This one is easy, my favourite Disney princess has always been Cinderella.  Never really thought about the princes.  The ones from the earlier films are all the same really and those are the films I remember more than the modern ones.
  9. If you could have any animal as a pet, which would you want? What would you name it?
    • I already have the animal I wanted.  A cat! his name is Teddy.
  10. Do you play board games? If so, which do you have the fondest memories of playing?
    • I remember playing Payday when my brother was younger.  We found it less stressful than Monopoly!
  11. And last but not least, the most important question: Left or right Twix?
    • I always go for the right one first.
