Chapter 8.3 Ageing up and Getting out

Before I get started I would like to mention a new blog of mine for those of you who don’t know about it yet.  It is called A Different Path and it is basically me messing around with pre-made sims.  I have already written a couple of chapters centred around Agnes Crumplebottom.  I highly recommend you check them out.  : )

Last time Starla was mean, Munchkin and Savannah continued working on the skills I am predicting they might need for their LTWs and Beast used a cat bed. 😀

This is the building where Shawna works, when she didn’t come home after her shift finished I went looking for her.  I found she was still at her work building in this rather nice little room taking a nap.

I took a close up as it’s hard to see her in the other photo.  It really is a nice little room. ❤

Back home Starla was taking a break from being mean. Mainly because she was the only one in the house at the time besides Beast and she actually likes him!

Also I want a jumper like that.

Magenta finally got a wish to change her hairstyle.  Much better.

Magenta: Agreed

Homework buddies.

Burmese: Aw I hate Maths.

Don’t worry you won’t have to do it for much longer.

Shawna came home eventually and took up her usual position.

Shawna: I’m old, it’s what I do now.

Now that I have started Munchkin on the piano skill that is generally what she gravitates towards when left to her own devices.

Not all of the family are so productive though.  I am getting the feeling Burmese is not keen on growing up.

This is Magenta putting the maid out of a job! You go girl!

Munchkin had a wish to learn the guitar skill so I brought her one.  It is proving popular.

Siamese working out in his very masculine bedroom!

Someone found the pizza oven and she didn’t burn it.

Fun fact: I can’t eat pizza anymore which is sad because I used to love it.

It took longer than I expected but Beast has finally rebelled against the cat bed.  I had wanted to get a picture of Beast and a ghost cat both sleeping here but the ghost moved.

Wow these birthdays just creep up on you don’t they.  It’s time for Ragdoll and Burmese to become YAs.  Prepare for birthday spam in 3, 2, 1…

This is of course Ragdoll, her new trait is Eccentric and her LTW is Paranormal Profiteer

This is Burmese looking very nice in his pink waistcoat.  His new trait is Clumsy and his LTW is jack of all trades.

I have saved them both so if anyone would like to add them to their game just let me now in the comments.

Ragdoll: Yes hello.  Do you have any houses available please?

Ragdoll: Oh you do, that would be great thanks.

Bye Ragdoll, Bye Burmese.  See you at the triplet’s party!

That’s the end of this chapter, next time the triplets should age up.



Chapter 8.2 Slap and Splash

Last time generation 8 started with the triplets becoming teenagers.  Elsewhere there were fails and the odd bit of skilling.

DogGnome: Oh I love this bit. ❤

BunnyGnome: Does it come in colour?

Beast must really like this cat bed as I caught him using it again.

Oh Magenta you were so close.  Thank you for the first fail of the chapter.

Burmese: Why did no one tell me we had a computer.  This is awesome!

Don’t you have homework to do?

Burmese: Let me just finish this level.

Beast joined the gnomes watching TV.  Loved that he sat on the sofa to watch! XD


Munckin is working on her piano skill in the hope she gets a musical LTW, she is up to level 3 already.

Ah finished that level then?

Burmese: I died, a lot.  It was depressing how much I sucked at it.

Starla in a rare moment of pleasant conversation.  Even Ragdoll is confused by this, look at her face.

Here is a closer image so you can see better.

Savannah: *retches* Ew a ghost and he’s eating cake.

That ghost is your dad.

Savannah: I stand by by original comment, ew.

Starla reign of meanness continues.  Here she is criticising Magrat’s family.

Magrat: Aren’t you part of this family too.  How can you say those things about your own son?

Most days Starla and Magenta are the only sims left in the house which often leads to scenes like this one.

This picture also shows Magenta’s new outfit.  She had a MLC wish to plan an outfit and since I technically don’t have to control her to complete it she got her wish.  I will fix her hair eventually I am just waiting to see if she gets a wish for a new hairstyle first.

This is what Starla and Magenta’s relationship is like now.  I have a feeling it’s only a matter of time before they resort to physical violence.

A lovely moment when the sim I can control chooses to do her homework herself.

Following her arguement with Starla Magenta needed to let off some steam.  I keep forgetting about that childish trait of hers.

Savannah had a wish to snorkel in the sea so here she is.  I am trying to hold off on going diving until her LTW is decided.

See what did I say.  I don’t even want to know what Starla said to cause that reaction.

Starla: Check this out kid, Your old granny’s still got the moves.

Siamese: I really wish you didn’t

Starla: Now who’s being mean?

Hold on I don’t think that much time had passed.

Siamese: It felt like it having to watch her dance.

Siamese: Ah now this is the life.  I could get used to this.

Don’t you have needs to fill, homework to do?

Siamese: *ignores and relaxes*

Siamese: Hey bro, you avoiding chores and homework too?

Burmese: Something like that.

Now he’s feeling relaxed Burmese had a go at diving off the diving board.

SnowGnome: This should be good for a laugh.  Kid is sure to fail on an epic scale.

Burmese: OK here goes.


SnowGnome: Well that’s a shame.

Found this guy on our lot, not sure how he managed to get passed the gate.  Anyway his name is Xavier and is in much need of a makeover.

Much better.  Munckin seemed to like him.

Siamese: Who’s that talking to my sister?

I wouldn’t worry too much about him. He vanished from the town when he left the lot, shame.

That’s all for now but another chapter shouldn’t be far off, I took a LOT of photos.  For now though here are a couple of things going on with the extended family.
