Chapter 6.14 A Determined Move

Last time Rickon was styling, Cyclops was born and the teens tried to gain the favour and votes of the readers.

To kick things of we have a ghostly babysitter.

Mulberry: Aren’t babies supposed to swim?

Please keep the baby away from the pool.

Meanwhile at the Salon.

PigtailsLady: What do you think that floating plumbob means Emerald?

That floating plumbob is Rickon in antsim mode having his adult birthday.  These two elders are the only witnesses.

Rickon: I’m me again. *Has midlife crisis* *rolls wish to flirt with bluecoplady*

Back at home the girls ponder the results of the heir vote.

Rouge: So Storm how does it feel to loose to your younger brother?

Storm: I can’t believe people voted for him over my obvious talents

Jubilee: What like blowing your own trumpet!

Storm: Oh how I wish I was an only child.

Jubilee: Hey Shawna! Thought anymore about my little plan.  We could clean up.

Shawna: I think you could clean this place first. It’s filthy

Storm looking beautiful as always! XD

Storm: That’s it, rub salt in the wound.

Back at the salon I decide to indulge Rickon’s wish to flirt with this lady.

Rickon: Hi, nice to meet you.

After a freindly hello Rickon turns on the charm.

Rickon: I’d like to take your picture if you get my meaning. *waggles eyebrows*

Bluecop: Careful boy, I could have you arrested.

She did not appreciate Rickon’s advances.  The wish remains unfulfilled.

Here’s Jubilee pulling a great evil face.  It was at this point that I decided I didn’t like her with this hair.

There that’s better.

Grandma Susan finds her new grandson.

Susan: I like this one, it doesn’t talk yet.

Jubilee finds the telescope.  I do like it when they skill autonomously

Susan: OK I’m done. Time for my nap.

Time to age up the burrito.

Aw cute.  He got Shawna’s hair too. ❤

There that’s better isn’t little guy. ❤

Susan goes swimming in her formal wear.

Susan: Well it is a Sunday.

Is it? I thought it was Tuesday

Rickon is still chained to the drafting table.  I’m not sure I like that sketch.

Gambit thanks you for choosing him as heir by cooking in his undies.

Gambit: Just giving my fans what they want ❤

With more crashes, freezing etc I decide to move them early. I gather up everything and everyone I want to take with me and get Rickon to make the call.

Rickon: I’m going to miss this place.

*move cancels due to annoying werewolves*

Rickon: Do we really have to take them with us.

Yes, they’re family.

Bran you are trying my patience. *move cancels*

Rickon: OK all the werewolves are in human form can we please move now.

The move seems succesful and the loading screen appears for the new town but then…

*game crashes*

Rickon: I give up. Oh great watcher please give us your assistance.

Starla: I like it here, there’s cake.

At the last minute Gambit rolls his LTW.  He wants to be an acrobat.

In the end I had to save the family to the sim bin.  So we take one last look at the house in Roaring Heights.

To start anew in this gorgeous house in Starlight Shores. I will now be decorating the house so there may not be a chapter for a while.  I will post a house tour when I am done.

Heir Poll – The Winner!

Hey guys! Not a chapter, sorry.  I am working on one for the Irving DITFT though so keep an eye out for that.

What I am here to tell you today is the results of the heir poll and who is going to lead us into generation 7.  So drum roll please

Here are the results.  So pleased to see everyone got some votes. 🙂

That means the winner and next torch holder is…

Well done Gambit! 😀

Gambit: What if I don’t want to be the TH. Don’t I get a say in this?


Storm: If he doesn’t want it, I’ll have it.

Jubilee: What makes you think you should have it?

Storm: I am the eldest.

Storm/Jubilee: *bickering in background*

Gambit: *ahem* Sorry about that.  Thank you kind readers for choosing me as the next heir.  I will try not to disappoint. 🙂


Chapter 6.13 The Stylish One

Hi I’m back again! Last time the quads had their teen birthday, there was a fire and Starla became a tragic clown


Ooh look someone found the pizza oven.  What you making Susan?

Susan: Bread. Now beat it I don’t want to burn it.

Lady: You really heals are the way to go.

Rickon: Oh yes and a new hairstyle will complete the look.  Trust me I’m a stylist. 🙂

Rickon is at the salon raising his job performance by styling random sims.

Shawna: Ow! I think the baby’s coming.

Jubilee: Your pain amuses me. >:)

Gambit: OMG What do I do? *panics*

Jubilee: *tries to react like a normal person*

Contessa: Shouldn’t you get your butt home boy.

Rickon: In a minute, I just want to finish this.

As you can see Rickon is super exicted to meet his new child.

Jubilee: Every great villian has a cat.

Beast: Put me down human.

Gambit: I’m hungry now, You’ll be fine on your own right?

Shawna: I love this family, really I do.

Wolverine is oblivious to what is going on.

Wolverine: This coffee is just too good.

Aren’t you a bit young for coffee?

If the option is there I will take it.

I love how much this family cares about a new addition. This is Storm while Shawna gives birth.

Jubilee: I can’t have a dirty cat sitting on me as I plan by evil schemes.


Rickon: Shawna’s having the baby, like now! Why didn’t you tell me sooner?

I did, you just cancelled the action to go home and stayed at the salon.

It’s coming!

Shawna: Hi there cutie ❤

Shawna: OK I’m bored of it now, where’s Rickon?

Meet Cyclops.  He was born Evil and Athletic.  He is also a werewolf and has the hidden trait makes no messes.

This is who he is named after.

Jubilee is the first to be drawn to the new baby.

Jubilee: This room is so dark, I love it.  ❤

It all proves too much for Wolverine and he passes out.

Wolverine: No one warned me about caffine crashes.

Rickon: Hello?

Pom: Hey hot stuff ❤ How about you and me got out sometime.

Rickon: Ew no way.  I don’t date old ladies plus I’m married.

Pom: Too bad, you don’t know what you are missing.

Rickon: *hangs up* I really don’t want to know.

Instead of heading upstairs to meet his new son Rickon heads for the drafting table instead.

Rickon: I’ve already seen 5 of them as babies.  How is this one going to be any different.

Parent of the year right here.

Gambit: There you go bro all clean.

Well done Gambit. ❤

Gambit: Holding a baby and standing around in my undies will hopefully increase my chances in the heir vote.

Gambit: Why is it crying now? Make it stop.

Ah normality is restored

Wolverine: It’s really cold outside dad.

Rickon: Then stay indoors.  I don’t want have to thaw you out too.

Storm: I heard holding the new baby will help with the heir vote.

No it won’t put him down.

Darrick: OMG It’s Rickon! I’m gonna get a new look from THE Rickon!

Rickon: Yes now calm down please.

Rickon: Hmm the body needs work.

Darrick: Why what’s wrong with it?

Rickon: Nothing a little styling wont fix.

Darrick: I look hot! thanks dude.

Rickon: Please don’t call me dude.

Next to be styled is Kenyatta Cap (Toan’s daughter)

Rickon: Not bad, I can work with this.  Stand still, time for the master to work his magic.

Kenyatta: Fluffy leg warmers, seriously?

Rickon: I think they look good on you.

Kenyatta: I don’t like it. Sorry.

Rickon: *gains promotion*

He is now at level 6, I failed to get a shot of the notification.

Just Rouge building a snowman on the beach.

I just the faces Jubilee pulls. ❤ I have no other reason for this picture.

Gambit: Why did I come in here?

Rickon is back at the salon.

Kiana: But aren’t I a bit young for heals?

Rickon: Sorry, I’m just used to styling adults.  How about a new hairstyle instead.

Here she is made over.  She is the daughter of Mance Maloney btw.  She’s so cute.

Gambit: Come on boy get the piggy.

Shaggydog: Someone is actually paying attention to me.

Jubilee what are you doing with Cyclops?

Jubilee: You’ll see, hush now.


The evil is strong with this one.

And that is it for now.  I’ve ran out of piccies.  The heir poll will be closing soon so hurry and vote for your fav while their is still time.  I have a three way tie at the moment so your vote will help.


Memory Lane Challange

I have been nominated for the Memory Lane Challenge by somebodysangel13. It is different to the other awards I’ve seen.

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share FIVE of your favourite moments from your legacy/story/challenge so far
  3. Nominate up to 5 blogs to do the same.

So here are my five favourite moments from the Mendoza

1# Jacklyn and Tobias’ Wedding

Tobias was one of my favourite spouses.  His childish trait made him so much fun.

2# Tobias in the buff

Yes I know it’s Tobias again.  He was my first senile naked elder.  This was such a funny moment

3# Melon and Magrat’s wedding

I loved these two. I think Melon has been my favourite TH so far.  Their wedding was a great day the only bugbear of mine is that no one used the lovely benches I designed.

4# Playing with life and death

I had great fun with this thing.  It may make another appearance soon. Watch this space

5# Susan and Max’s Honeymoon

I think has been the only time this family has travelled.  I will have to try and include more trips.









Chapter 6.12 Two Greenies and a Fire

Hello everbody, me again.

First for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet the heir poll is up.  If you haven’t voted please do, the poll is still open.

Last time Shawna discovered she was pregnant, Susan froze solid more than once and the quads had their teen birthday.  Then my game did this.

It goes without saying that I was not happy

Luckily the backup file worked and the Mendoza’s lived to fail another day.

When I loaded the game I was taken back to just before the quads birthday so at least I didn’t have to replay too much.

Rickon: Haven’t I already done this?

Yes, but I had some technical issues

Elsewhere Shawna broke the shower.

Shawna: You’re putting that in, seriously?

Yup. 😀 The readers want to see what you’ve been doing.

Kids: Story.

Mulberry: These kids are giving me a headache, especially this one.

Jubilee: >:)

Love the dip kiss ❤

Rickon: *muffled* A little privacy please.

Sorry. *makes quick exit*

You do know you age up very soon. You don’t have to do homework sweetie.

Wolverine: I don’t like to leave things unfinished.

Lucky step away from the cowplant.

Seymour: It’s ok, I don’t bite.

Lucky: I remember this thing, it’s harmless. Aren’t you. *pets*

In the last few minutes before the party Gambit finds the ballet bar.

While Rickon remembers we have a cat.

Beast: It’s nice to be included.

Right the guests are here. Time for party take 2.

Wait were is our host?

Rickon what are you doing? The guests are here.

Rickon: Laundry.

In your swimwear?

Rickon: Best to be prepared. Plus I look good. 😀

*backs slowly out of room*

Right, cake time! The two greenies got to the cakes first, the other to took their own sweet time getting there so I couldn’t get a nice shot of them all in a row.

Gambit: What did I miss?

Just one missing, now where’s Jubilee.

Rouge: I’m gorgeous ❤

Jubilee: Do I have to stand next to this dork.

Dani: YAY! Stereo’s broken 😀

Wolverine: Hi!



Everyone else: Oh there’s a fire.

Storm: The light from this fire makes me look good.

After that little drama Gambit ages up.

Jubilee: New cake please.

Dani: Cake ❤

Jubilee: Aunt Dani you are ruining my picture.

Jubilee: Ugh, I look hideous.  Makeover now!

Rouge’s new trait is Easily impressed. She is so pretty. ❤

Jubilee’s new trait is Evil.

Wolverine’s new trait is Brooding.  I let him keep the hair as it reminded me of Melon.

Finally is Gambit.  His new trait is Grumpy.  I love how that hair looks on him.  I need to use the ITF stuff more.

Everyone: Doorbell.

Storm: OMG! Mum showed up. 😀

Llama: *Struts around porch.

Pom: *Is unimpressed*

Llama: 😥



Storm: Well this is awkard

This clusterfuck is because Shawna is in the basement.  Got to love that irresistable trait! XD

Jubilee proves that she is indeed a witch.  Also she shows off her cool outdoorwear

I leave Rickon on free will for just a moment and he finds the bar.  I worry about this one, look at all the drinks he made.

Jubilee: So I have this plan that could make us a lot of money, you in?

Shawna: Does this plan involve anything criminal?

Jubilee: Of course not.  I wouldn’t dream of breaking the law (much)

I missed the actually moment but I had Rickon throw a tragic clown elixer at Starla.


Lets take a closer look shall we.

Starla: Lets not.

Starla: That’s the last time I come to one of their parties.

Crowd: *sobs*

Bran: *taps foot impatiently*

Storm continues to raise her musical skills

Wolverine: I want that cake but the cake is in the way.

Storm: And that dear brother is why I am beating you in the heir poll. XD

You have no idea what the results are.

Storm: I don’t need to know. It’s obvious who’s way in front.

Rickon is out styling again.  This is Tara Daye Leavitt.  She is the daughter of Reed and Marina Winters.

Here is a before and after shot of her makeover.  She’s actually really pretty.  I have saved her for future use.

She loved the makeover.

Rickon: I am to please.

This makeover bumped him up to level 6 in his career.  I lost the picture of the notification though.

I have more photos but I think this is long enough as it is. As such I will leave the rest for next time.


Heir vote

Hi everyone.  I am still trying to get enough pictures for another chapter.  In the meantime let’s get the heir vote out.

Here are your choices, in no particular order.

I have my favourites but as always I enjoy seeing how you guys vote. I look forward to seeing the results.


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.
