Now that we have the basic information, rules and bonuses listed, let’s go fail this challenge. I am so far into the challenge right now, that I think there’s enough shots for two updates.
We start off with Caleb turning Victoria into a vampire.
Victoria went for the studio look by just grabbing a room off the gallery.
And put the “bathroom” outside.
Victoria: Is it too late to change my mind?
Victoria: I hope this isn’t as gross as it seems.
Victoria is having a hard time getting her vampire lore books ready Also, Lydia is in constant need of attention. The active and loyal traits are killing us.
They have to go jogging at least once a day, sometimes twice.
And they only stop when Victoria is about to die.
I thought her flamingo dress was adorably appropriate for this challenge. She does have 5 outfits per category, so who knows how often we will see it.
Victoria: As much as I love Caleb, I really must think about my bank account.
Vlad: And you choose me?
Victoria: Well, you do have a nice house that should sell well.
Victoria: This isn’t going so well, is it?
Vlad: Are we done yet? I’m so bored.
Victoria couldn’t travel home because “a vampire was breaking in”. Luckily, Caleb called up for a date at that time.
She’s so freaking cute.
Caleb: You’re almost ready to join me, my love.
Victoria: I keep having these weird feelings, I don’t like it.
Then she gets over it and they become best friends.
Some early morning roughhousing before work.
It’s finally time for Victoria’s first day of work. She chose the science career, which I may or may not have mentioned.
Now we have to take the Beyond Cheesy bonus into consideration. They can drink whatever they want, so Victoria will supplement herself with drinks at work and eat grilled cheese at home. Once she becomes a vampire, she will drink plasma. I think teen and under will need to stick to grilled cheese for the bonus. I doubt anyone will do the hidden grilled cheese thing though.
More date time with Caleb. He’s always calling her up to go dancing or drinking.
Victoria: My grilled cheese is tasting off.
Victoria is sure to change any time now.
And sure enough, she’s awoken from sleep for her transformation.
Bwahahaha! Someone needs a makeover.
Oh yeah. This happened. It was a regular woohoo, but I think my woohoo settings are still from my regular play, which makes any woohoo risky. All of her other pregnancy tests were negative.
Victoria: So, how do you feel about children out of wedlock?
Caleb: It’s time we were married, Vic.
Victoria doesn’t answer Caleb and just heads home to train Lydia some more.
And go jogging again.
Makeover is complete.
Then we get our first brush with death. Run home, Vic, RUN!
Career lots, Magnolia Promenade, and Newcrest are using an eternal night mod, but I don’t think it actually works for daytime.
Also, Marcus Flex is a cross dresser with very bad taste. Where as, the guy in yellow is wearing a lovely yellow and white dress. Very tasteful. Although, he may need to go shoe shopping.
I have to go to work with Victoria at least 50% of the time. Right now, that’s not an issue, but later it will be on a schedule. Once the house starts to fill up, we will go to work with Victoria every day until she gets her required breakthroughs and her performance bar is 75% complete. Then she can just go on her own.
I love the science career, but it’s all so repetitive that I don’t bother with pictures. Zoe Patel was a nice snack though. She may become a spouse at some point.
Either Caleb asked her out or Marcus did (for a promotion celebration). Victoria spent the time scoping out potential victims since she has to turn 5 vampires for the bonus (and her aspiration).
She does end up having a ball and getting some dancing skill.
Victoria: You sure are stinky.
Well, there’s an expense we didn’t need, but Lydia loves the attention.
Maybe the eternal night mod does work. Today, Victoria ignores her work and just does some collecting. She didn’t catch on fire once.
Victoria killed the audience with her horrible singing skill.
But she is able to turn Marcus.
Lydia is always excited when mommy comes home.
Especially if it means learning how to fetch.
I have a belly mod so that it doesn’t show very much. So, it really expands in the 3rd trimester.
The goal is to love Caleb, but also breed with Vlad for his money.
Victoria and Vlad have finally made it to friends. It took forever.
She got him inside with the “chat together here” option just as the sun was coming up, stopping him from dying and/or running home.
Victoria: I can’t believe he agreed to move in! Quick, a house before he changes his mind!
And they got a cute little house off the gallery.
And they both immediately went to bed.
Oh lot types. On Ley Land, the one that makes dog training easier, and Vampire Lair.
Lydia is learning to play dead.
She can never sit and read because as soon as her attention is on a book, Lydia bugs her for attention. She needs to be close to Victoria (loyal trait) or she would not even be allowed in the house.
Well, well, well. I like how this is going.
Victoria is stocking up grilled cheese and working her cooking skill when she goes into labor.
Lot traits did nothing for us. Welcome Belladonna.
Vlad immediately runs to the baby and takes over.
I didn’t document the other lot traits, but Victoria chose this for the little vet clinic she just bought.
It seems to have everything we need.
The other tiny store is also bought. If it’s not obvious by the baby carriage design, then I’ll just say it’s for baby items.
Now the clubhouse has to have a retail section, but it probably will never sell anything. We have flamingos and gnomes and llamas, oh my.
But it also has a training area for Lydia.
Lydia loves everything except this display thing. She looks vicious!
She went around in 40 minutes with only 2 faults. Yay, Lydia!
Lydia and Victoria become companions at this point.
We get pulled from the clubhouse to see watch Marcus’ transformation.
Catarina: What the fuck just happened? Get me out of here!
Oddly enough, a roof had to put on the training area because Victoria started burning. I think it has to do with the vampire traits or something. Also, there is a bar in the back corner and a sauna in the bottom corner. I will add tables, chairs and maybe a bbq area some time soon.
The sun took a lot out of her, so she has to stop and meditate just to be able to make it home.
After hours of trying to flirt with Vlad, Victoria starts to wonder if she has made a big mistake. On the one hand, she hated the idea of cheating on Caleb. On the other hand, she didn’t want anyone to think she moved in Vlad for his money, another way of making her feel like a cheater.
Victoria is an hour away from work and I was debating if we were going with her or staying with Vlad.
Vlad grabbed his umbrella and went out to play with Lydia. I was trying to get Victoria over to plead with Grim, but she was going to work and I stayed to watch the whole gory death.
Back home, Victoria almost died on the walk to get Vlad’s grave to put on the lot. She had to do some meditating to get back from the brink of combustion/death.
Victoria puts away her sadness and invites Caleb over for Love Day.
Victoria: I hope you enjoy this present. It’s all I had in my inventory.
Caleb: I’m sure I’ll love it, baby.
Yes, Caleb, please enjoy that large dog poop. I didn’t get his reaction because I was laughing so hard. It was probably the funniest thing I saw all day yesterday.
Are you kidding me? I’m not ready for proposals. Damn you , MCCC.
Lilith: Well, if that jerk is going to get married, I better go buy a Penthouse.
Caleb: I can’t believe we’re engaged! I can’t wait to get married.
That ass took it quite literally and MCCC had them elope immediately while I was actually seeing if Victoria was friendly enough with anyone at the bar to turn them.
Screw you, MCCC. I did try to cancel the wedding, which made it so that Caleb couldn’t move in. LOL
At least something came from it.
Also, Victoria turned Brant Heckerling and this lady who’s name I can’t recall because my game isn’t open.
About this time, we get our first successful holiday out of the way.
A quick meditation to make it home because I keep the poor girl out until her vampire powers are almost depleted.
Caleb moves in and his vampire points thingy was beyond outrageous. I think he’s glitched. In fact, he has almost all the things he can take and was left with 700 points or something.
A family dance party seems a pretty good place to stop for now.
