The Mendoza ISBI

Idiots do it their way


Chapter 5.5 Cuteness Overload

Hi there, sorry it’s been a while since the last post.  My boyfriend has been upgrading our computer to windows 10 which meant a lot of fiddling around due to his backup system.  In the process I lost a lot of CC from sims. 😦 I am not that fussed though as I was going to do a purge on it all anyway.  Unfortunately I also lost some screenshots, not too many though so that’s no worry.

On a happier note I treated myself to Sims 4.  Yes I know I said I wasn’t keen on it but after a lot of thought I remembered that I had similar feelings about sims 3 when that first came out.  Bearing that in mind I have decided to do a legacy using sims 4, I feel this is the best way to try things out.

This is my founder, Evelyn Ordonez. (totally random name! :D)

08-13-15_4-26 PM

Not sure when I will have the first chapter up but I am aiming for the end of the month.  Watch this space.

So what happened with the Mendoza’s last time? *goes to last chapter to check* Oh yes! the twins became adorable little handfuls, there was a party in which most of the guests queued up to be eaten by Seymour, lots of birthdays and the Stark quads were born.

Phew that was a long intro, lets get this show on the road!



Looking after quads is hard work.  Poor Susan is tied to the nursery full time.  She has no time to work on her LTW at all.  Other family members will on occasion lend a hand but not very often.



Oh Lucky why? -5

Giggles: *is still here from party in last chapter*



Dun dun dun! The curse of the bedtime story again befalls the household.  This is only going to get worse when the quads grow up. Le sigh.



Ha ha! hair glitch! 😀 this by the way is the only photo I have left of the quad’s birthday.



This is Ayra



This little cutie is Rickon




This one is Eddard




And finally we have Bran.



With the kids now easier to look after Susan takes a much needed break and visits a friend.  What a cute little house.




It’s Rham and Airdale’s house.  There is a reason Susan is here.

rham twins

This is the reason.




One of the girls is green! YAY! I think this is Starla.  I couldn’t find her sister.


This however is their older brother Kraig.  Isn’t he adorable. ❤


Back home Susan makes childcare/training look easy.



K-9 is still with us. He is getting really old now.  Might be time to get a new pet.



Hey someone found the drafting table!

Toddler Spam! Be prepared for cuteness overload.


Screenshot-45 Screenshot-46 Screenshot-49


Screenshot-57 Screenshot-58 Screenshot-59 Screenshot-64 Screenshot-68

I love them all so much. ❤



Max! -5

Max: But there was ice cream. 😦



This is how I found Lucky when I loaded the game up the next time.  It made me laugh so hard! XD

Lucky: I still have my hair! HA HA HA!



Oh the joys of quads.

Ayra & Eddard: HUNGRY!!



This is why I can’t have anything nice.



Dani this is why you should just go to bed instead of asking for stories all night.  The evil looking kid in yellow is Rodger, son of Cameron Maloney and Jan Mendoza (daughter of Ready Brek).



Sammy: Mom, Dad please my new friend is here.

Kay & Samoyed: *loud kissing noises*

Viserys: Nice house.




This little cutie is Dani’s friend Moshe.  He is the son of Shiloh and Chihuahua.  He is definitely a spouse option for Dani if she is heir.

There is so much cuteness in this chapter. Let’s have some more.






This family, sigh. -5




I will end with the gnomes all gathered to watch some american sport that looks like rugby but they call it football?!

Chapter 5.4 Automously Skilling Sims

OK so last time Susan gave birth to twins Daererys and Viserys, Lucky recieved a key to the city & Max did werewolfy stuff.

I shall start with the overdue addition of two new simselfs Sabrina and Julia.



Also a few notifications.  There has been a lot going on but I won’t include all of the popups.  Here is a slice of what is going in in the town.

Rham baby

There have been several babies born. I will send Susan out so you can see them all when they are older.

Nate & Holly

The simselfs are all finding love.  Nate bagged a Dewdrop after his previous old lady girlfriend died.


Julia & Sam


And this just made me laugh.  I think I got another popup shortly after saying they had been fighting! Come on girls play nice.


The new babies are very popular and are never short of attention.

Lucky: I wanted to feed that baby.

Susan: There is another one over there.

Lucky: He’s so needy, I want a moment with my precious little mother of dragons. ❤



Max, as it turns out is a great dad.  He adores his children.



Even if he can’t always work out what they want!



Magrat: Is this new?


Magrat: I like it.



Ok enough of the burritos.  Also it’s Koi’s birthday.

Max: *ignores whatever is cooking in the fryer because of birthdays.*



I am not sure if Koi is sneezing or blowing out candles in this shot.



This is unfortunately the only picture I have of Visery’s birthday.  As you can see he has Lucky’s blue hair.



Koi’s turn next.

Koi: I don’t want to get old.

Max: YAY a lifetime of cake!



Koi is actually a cute elder even if she aged up into a onesie.

Max: *is too cute for words*



Finally we have Daenerys or Dani for short.



Instant toddler, just add cake! XD



Studious little cuties. ❤



Their parents meanwhile….



Here we have the elders in their natural habitat.

Oh Koi I really need to give you a makeover.



Lucky finds the drums.  At least she’s out of the rocking chair.




Ah I sense more babies in your future.

Susan: *retching noises*

twits (6)


Max this is not what I meant by ‘get to know the family’

Max: So you can’t feel anything, not even rain?

Jacklyn: That’s the nature of being a ghost.  Want to find out what it’s like?

You leave him alone.

twits (4)


Baby incoming.

Kittystereo: *kids music*


twits (7)

A mere pregnancy does not stop Susan working on her LTW.  I am also making Susan listen to kids music via the portable music player hense the music note near her head.


twits (8)

Ooh automously skilling sims.  What is the world coming to! O.O


twits (9)

Koi: This bar could do with being better stocked.


twits (11)

Cute mother/daughter moment.


twits (19)

Ah TV how I love thee, such a better carer for the tots than the family are.


twits (21)

A torch holder’s work is never done.  Also another great maternity wear choice.

Susan: There is no point fixing a shower fully clothed.  I would only wet them up anyway.


twits (22)

Yikes that looks painful.

Dani: FEED ME!



twits (24)

Evilgnome: Oh great and powerful gnome satan. Accept this offering as a sign of our fealty.


twits (12)

Seymour is up to his old tricks again, luckily Lucky got spat out.


twits (26)

My that’s a lot of sims just randomly turning up.  PARTY TIME!


twits (28)

No Seymour do not eat the guests! 😡

24hourspar: *waits to be eaten*


twits (34)

Susan greats the guests like any good host should.

Susan: Thanks for coming even though you weren’t invited.

Rhamnus crashes every party they have.


twits (37)


He does provide the entertainment though along with Toan.

twits (38)

Meanwhile outside….


twits (42)

They grow up so fast.



twits (45)

Well that’s a poor turnout, where is everyone.


twits (46)

And here is Dani as a child.  New trait is not written in my notes.



twits (48)

Oh here they all are.  Zombies to the music.


twits (50)

Well not everyone, guess who’s in Susan & Max’s bed.


twits (52)

Yup, these two again.  Seriously guys, this is a kids birthday party.


twits (53)

It’s Viserys turn to grow up.


twits (57)

He is adorable when he’s not pulling a face like that.  Again I didn’t write the new trait down.


twits (59)

After most of the guests had left I found K-9 trying to follow someone home because he had follow in his queue.  I took pity on him and sent him home.



Well that was short lived, full moon happened so Max is a werewolf again.



Still cute baby bump feeling is cute.



Next on Seymour’s hit list is a zombie. Again he spat him out.



Susan: Labour is music to my ears.



Ghostly intermission



Susan: Is it over?

Sigh, she had quads.  That’s what I get for giving Max fertility treatment too.  Still at least all the children are born and Susan can get a job soon.

OK we have Rickon – Freindly & Insane, Ayra – Clumsy & Artistic, Bran – Disaplined & Brave and Eddard – Freindly & Heavy sleeper.  Ayra, Eddard and Bran and werewolfs!

The names are taken from members of House Stark




I shall leave you with the grandparents discovering their new grandchildren.

Oh and one more thing.  Susan got the Oh my ghost opportunity.  I am not sure how to use it at the moment.  Should I bring back one of the old heirs e.g Jacklyn?

Chapter 5.3 Baby Boom!

Last time Susan and Max went on honeymoon to China, Lucky became my portrait slave and Koi had a death wish.

Lets start on a happy note with these notifications

babies Baby sammy Rhamair baby

I will show you the babies when they are older.  So happy that everyone is starting to have babies. So many spouse potentials!


Lucky is still painting but this one seems promising.

Lucky: Please release me, let me go

Not until you get it right.



Hi Jacklyn!



Koi is stuck in an endless mopping cycle.  I will have to get Susan to fix that bath.



Koi: I think I deserve this after all that cleaning.

I added the deep fat fryer and ice cream machine again, such fun.




Looks like Susan and Max will have a memento from their honeymoon. 😉



Lucky: Rocking chair here I come!

Go ahead, you’ve earned it.



Lucky: This is a nice porch, when did we get this?

Oh not long ago, I added it on a whim.



Wow, Max is super hairy as a werewolf!



Lucky got a call about receiving an award from city hall for all her hard work so I bent the rules and let her go.

Charlotte: I don’t know what I’m doing here.

Rad: *polite applause* There is more people here than I expected.



Rad is now a fairy and Tam is a vampire.

Charlotte & that other woman: YAY I got a balloon! 😀




Frostee: I’m in a photo! 😀

Lucky got the key to the city.



Back at home Susan is rubbing Max’s belly. I love this interaction. it’s so cute. ❤

Also she has the same pregnancy wear as Magrat it seems.




Cute photo for the crypt. (which I need to alter at some point)



K-9 is getting old. 😦 I will have to get them a new pet.



K-9: My but tingles.



K-9: I request birthday cake now.



No reason for this, just liked her face.



Hi Max, what ‘cha doing?

Max: Just pondering what to do.



The joys of having a werewolf in the family.  This is only going to get worse if any of the kids inherit the wolf gene.



Susan: Max, I’m glad I found you.  I great news, I’m pregnant!

Max: I’m going to be a daddy! 😀



Max: You got anything to eat in there, i’m hungry.




I knew this would happen eventually, fryer queue!

Lucky: What have they done to my beautiful kitchen, I paid for this place you know.

twit (3)

Koi is still the family drinker.  If she is not drinking from the here she is at the bar


twit (4)

Bonehilda caught up on her cleaning so she is now teaching K-9 to sit.

K-9: I’m too old for this.



twit (5)


Max as a werewolf eating ice cream because I thought it was cute. ❤




twit (7)


Lucky: Bad wolf.


twit (8)

A trampoline was wished for, Koi is the first to find it.  Hold up, lets zoom in on that face.


twit (10)

Man that’s one creepy face.


twit (11)

Aw Koi, I was so close to getting a pic of you and bonehilda on the trampoline.

Koi: Don’t care, sleepy now.


twit (12)

Pregnancy does not stop Susan working on her LTW.

Susan: No but this will. *waters break*


twit (13)

Lucky: Hello? Oh no nothing much going on here.

Susan: Gee thanks mum.


twit (15)

Susan: ARGH! Baby incoming!

Lucky: Have fun dear, I need to pee.


twit (16)

So poor Susan had to drive herself to the hospital


twit (17)

Max followed on a bike (where’d that come from?) when he realised what was happening.

Max: Don’t worry honey, I’m coming.


twit (19)

Mixed gender twins! We have Daenerys (girl) & Viserys (boy).  Daenerys is disaplined and loves the heat and Viserys is a Genius and easily impressed.


Naming theme is Game of Thrones and they are named after these two, Viserys & Daenerys Targaryen.



twit (21)

Susan gets a well earned rest on arriving home.


twit (24)

Le sigh, we were doing so well. -5

Chapter 5.2 Taking a Trip



Since I took way too many pictures here’s another chapter for you! 😀

Remember last time I said I had a job interview? Well I got the job! It does mean I will be working full time though so less time for simming, but don’t fear I will still make time.  Also cute Pikachu gif is cute. ❤


One last thing before I start.  Chapter 5.4 of the Winterton Adoptacy is up.  It is in a written in a different style to usual so I hope you like it.

Basically I want to know if you would read a legacy/challenge written in this style. Since I am no good at forward planning when it comes to storywriting I plan to write a story around what the sims get up to, sort of like a challenge within a challenge.  Just an idea I had for future projects.

So last time Susan took over as the new TH, met and snagged Max Dewdrop while Lucky was chained to the easel trying to do portraits that meet my high standards.



Just thought you would all like to see a pic of Max in his swimwear. 😉


Max: But i’m a married man now.


Koi I swear I will cause you serious harm if you do not leave the cowplant alone! 😡


Seymour: *BURP*  Meat always tastes better after I tenderise it first.

Spit her out and go eat the paparazi or something.

Seymour: 😦



When Max moved in he already had a job at the hospital so I used his one action to send him to play chess.  I am hoping he will continue to skill on his own.

Max: Don’t hold you breath



Just Koi protesting, again.



Hi Susan, where you off to?

Susan: Honeymoon

Shouldn’t you wait for Max?

He’ll catch up once I start the car.



Please don’t break my game, please don’t break my game.



Susan: Why do I have to go shopping and adventuring alone.  This is supposed to be my honeymoon.

Just want to make a profit on this trip.  You’ll get to spend time with Max, I promise.



I have Susan buy the recipe books in case we need them for future generations.  I don’t plan to come back unless I absolutely have too.  She also brought the incense, training dummy and a pretty chest.



Max where are you going.

Max: Must see turtle.

He travelled to a field on the opposite side of the map just to watch a turtle.  I cheated a little and made him pick it up so I could sell it. 😀




Adventure time!



Susan: Ooh shiney




Susan: I hope there’s no bugs in here.



Max: Honey? What ‘cha doing? This is not what I had in mind when I said I wanted to spend the day with you. 😦



Susan: Sorry did you say something?



Max: I’m not happy.

I can see that.

Max: I want to play in the water too. *stamps feet and throws tantrum*

*rolls eyes*



Max: I think something bit me and not in a good place.

I do not want to know. O_o



Max: *changes into werewolf due to stress levels*


Screenshot-42 Screenshot-43

Aw such a cute werewolf.

Max: Awwwwoooooo! Grrr!




He then ran back to base camp like this.



Chopsticks! To eat a salad with?

Susan: I wanted to try it at least once. Just to say I used chopsticks in china. 😀



More adventuring!



Finally we get the reason we are here.  Part of Susan’s LTW is to master martial arts.  Why she felt the need to it half naked though.

Susan: It’s hot here. This way I keep cool.

I can safely say I would never work out dressed like that.  For one thing I don’t work out! XD



Level 1 complete



Susan: This is a lovely wall.

Found the tomb behind the shops, time to plunder it for treasure.



Susan: Argh get off!



Safely snuck past a water trap! Love this girl! ❤



See I said you would get to time together on this trip. 😉

Ok trip’s over, time to go home



Landscaped the front garden, recoloured the house and added large porch area.  Spot the 3 doctor who objects.



Lucky: What about this one.

Getting better, I’ll keep hold of it for now, let’s try Max’s portrait next then you can try Susan’s again.

Lucky: Will the torture never end.



Sink broke again.




K-9: I can fly! I mean woof.

Max: Wow this dog can jump!




I laughed at this.  I sat and watched to see if it was possible for the cowplant to eat bonehilda praying it wouldn’t mess up my game.



Seymour: *loud choking* Bone…stuck in…throat…



Seymour: *Spits out.*

I’m a little disappointed.



I fixed Max’s werewolf form.

Max: Ever seen a wolf play piano?

K-9: I have now.



YAY babies on the way! 😀

Susan: I’m glad one of us is happy with this situation.

😀 😀 😀



Much better, I approve.

Lucky: Good because I’m tired of this.




I found it really sweet that Magrat’s first haunting was with Melon.

Susan: I see dead people.

That’s it, that’s all the pictures I have.  I am finally caught up. Apart from a baby I have no idea what’s going to happen next time.

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)


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)


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.

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. 😀


Magrat: You’re going down.

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


I guess not.


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


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


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


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!


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.


Bye Rory!


Koi: Heavenly Llamas this place is beautifully decorated!

Well I do try


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.



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


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.

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.

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

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.

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’

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




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?



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?


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




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.


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


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.


Proof that Magrat does have a softer side.


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

Then sit somewhere else.


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.


Lucky: These clothes are disgustingly clean.


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


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.



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!

Chapter 4.9 Your Hunger is Amusing.

Hey there, another chapter coming your way.  Generation 5 is getting close now, there will be an heir poll after this chapter.

Last time Magrat reached the top of the criminal career and achieved her LTW on her own!! Rory grew up and other stuff happened.


Lucky is out doing her PI job.  She is actually on hold with someone.

Lucky: I hate hold music.

You and me both.

Suddenly the camera pans home and this happens. 😥


Melon: Mum? Is that you?


Death: OK which one of you wants the honour of joining me in the netherworld.

Melon: It’s not me, take her instead!



Melon: PLEEAASEE don’t take me away.

Death: Get up, this is embarrassing.


Melon: How about a mind meld first?

Death: *sigh* Is it too much to ask for them to just go quietly.


After all that Grimmy hung around and chatted online for a bit.



Bye Melon.  I’ll miss you.  (the megaphone is the only thing I could think of that related to his final career in the director’s branch of the film career)


Anyway on to happier things.  Susan & Romana’s birthdays. Romana is up first.

Screenshot-22 Screenshot-24 Screenshot-29

Not bad, I can see a little Lucky in her but not bad

Magrat: How can you all celebrate when my beloved Melon is gone.


Susan is next.


Sadly this is the only picture I have of her before makeover.


Speaking of makeovers here is Romana as a teen.  Her new trait is Loves to Swim.



This is Susan as a teen. Her new trait is Dramatic.  I had to get a doctor who pattern in there somewhere and since her fav colour is blue it is more suited to her.


I always find it cute when the dog licks the sim when they are getting brushed.  This is the first time I have managed to get the picture right when it happens. 😀


Lucky was working out for an opportunity. Her athletic daughter decided to join her, in her swimwear.


In other news Emmie the pit monster claims another victim.  The ghost for this death btw is always drowning, even the pop up is for drowning. Lazy EA, lazy.


Oh yes, I discovered Martha has a hidden trait.


She’s an imaginary friend.  I think she inherited it from 24HourSpar.


I let her walk around the house like it for a bit but that face is so creepy so I changed her back.  You won’t be seeing her like this again, probably.


Magrat: I think you should do your bit and help with the cleaning.


Yeah that didn’t go over well.  These two are not on good terms anymore.


Lucky’s latest case involves this guy, Russell Tanner.  First she questioned him.


Then she dusted his home for prints.  I was disapointed that the family was actually home as I noticed Lucky had the option to break in.


Finally she had to go through the garbage.

Lucky: Can’t I have an assistant to do this bit.


Martha: Grandma, why so sad?



Magrat: I miss Melon. *sob sob*

Martha: There, there. It’s ok, You’ll see him soon.

Not sure that’s the best thing to say. :/


Seriously she does this all the time.  I felt she should keep the mourning moodlet but no I wish I hadn’t


This is just Martha setting a prank.  Nothing more to say, just liked her face here.


Rory: Aw English Lit is hard. Why does it have to be Shakespeare. Why can’t it be something I actually understand like Iron Man.

Romana: You are comparing Shakespeare to a comic?! I can’t even look at you right now.


Ooh someone found the guitar.  She actually stuck at it long enough to gain a skill level. 😀


Susan is cooking breakfast when there is a ton of leftovers in the fridge.

Susan: I don’t know how long that stuff’s been in there.


This makes perfect sense, the hydrophobic one wants to play in the waterfall.


Koi is still playing with the kids toys.  It’s cute to watch so I haven’t packed them away.


It’s Lucky’s first stakeout. How’s it going.

Lucky: Well I seem to be nicely camouflaged so my target shouldn’t see me.


And just were is your target?

Lucky: Well, you see…

No one turned up. 😦 Stakeout failed.


This is what happened on the second try.

RB: Hey sis, what are you doing?

Lucky: Don’t talk to me, I’m on a stakeout.  Move or you’ll ruin it.

Stakeout failed, again. 😦

Um Susan won’t your parents catch you. They were both right there?

Susan: Relax, my target is closeby.

twit (14)

Yes, I forgot Koi’s birthday.

twit (17)

She looks the same but is now going through a mid life crisis.  No problem with that, I don’t have to fulfil your wishes.

twit (18)

Magrat: Listen there’s this film coming out at the weekend that I can’t miss.  Could you hold of on reaping me till after then?

Susan: Is she really making a deal with Grim?

Death: Listen lady, I already let one member of this household live way past his expiry date.  I am not doing that again.

twit (20)

Stakeout try 4.

Oldguy: Is it just me or does that bush look oddly like a woman.

Teen: Never mind that. Just get this over with, I’m tired.

Lucky got what she needed, reported it to the police now I just have to wait for the appropriate time to do the second stakeout.

twit (24)

Did I mention I love these kids? Martha is working on the car.

twit (28)

Martha: This presentation is great, I should take some notes.
