Chapter 1.1

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-13-48-22

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-13-59-14

Victoria went for the studio look by just grabbing a room off the gallery.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-14-12-37

And put the “bathroom” outside.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-14-17-27

Lydia’s stuff.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-14-35-59

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-14-42-74

Victoria:  Is it too late to change my mind?
Yep.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-15-04-97

Victoria:  I hope this isn’t as gross as it seems.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-29-35-76

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-31-48-27

They have to go jogging at least once a day, sometimes twice.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-33-49-14

And they only stop when Victoria is about to die.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-38-15-11

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-39-50-07

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-41-28-87

Victoria:  This isn’t going so well, is it?
Vlad:  Are we done yet?  I’m so bored.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-45-15-33

Victoria couldn’t travel home because “a vampire was breaking in”.  Luckily, Caleb called up for a date at that time.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-46-20-49

She’s so freaking cute.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-51-12-40

Caleb:  You’re almost ready to join me, my love.
Victoria:  I keep having these weird feelings, I don’t like it.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-51-53-89

Then she gets over it and they become best friends.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 19-59-23-43

Some early morning roughhousing before work.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-01-29-26

It’s finally time for Victoria’s first day of work.  She chose the science career, which I may or may not have mentioned.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-05-22-50

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-07-00-91

More date time with Caleb.  He’s always calling her up to go dancing or drinking.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-09-47-09

Victoria:  My grilled cheese is tasting off.
Victoria is sure to change any time now.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-11-03-96

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-11-14-72

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-11-25-08

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-11-38-44

And sure enough, she’s awoken from sleep for her transformation.

Bwahahaha!  Someone needs a makeover.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-13-31-74

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-14-05-95

Victoria:  So, how do you feel about children out of wedlock?
Caleb:  It’s time we were married, Vic.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-16-26-13

Victoria doesn’t answer Caleb and just heads home to train Lydia some more.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 20-17-53-78

And go jogging again.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-23-37-68

Makeover is complete.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-31-55-35

Then we get our first brush with death.  Run home, Vic, RUN!

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-32-53-81

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-34-41-74

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-35-27-49

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-37-31-93

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-44-43-38

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).

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-47-05-32

She does end up having a ball and getting some dancing skill.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-50-08-59

Victoria:  You sure are stinky.

Well, there’s an expense we didn’t need, but Lydia loves the attention.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 21-57-58-67

Maybe the eternal night mod does work.  Today, Victoria ignores her work and just does some collecting.  She didn’t catch on fire once.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-02-10-65

Victoria killed the audience with her horrible singing skill.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-05-27-22

But she is able to turn Marcus.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-07-56-03

And Zoe.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-09-32-01

Lydia is always excited when mommy comes home.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-10-09-12

Especially if it means learning how to fetch.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-15-57-63

I have a belly mod so that it doesn’t show very much.  So, it really expands in the 3rd trimester.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-24-11-33

The goal is to love Caleb, but also breed with Vlad for his money.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-25-25-05

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-27-43-80

Victoria and Vlad have finally made it to friends.  It took forever.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-28-18-42

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-29-39-26

Victoria:  I can’t believe he agreed to move in!   Quick, a house before he changes his mind!

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-40-16-67

And they got a cute little house off the gallery.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-41-12-44

And they both immediately went to bed.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-42-43-77

Oh lot types.  On Ley Land, the one that makes dog training easier, and Vampire Lair.

Lydia is learning to play dead.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-45-45-19

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-47-23-83

Well, well, well.  I like how this is going.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 22-57-24-11

Victoria is stocking up grilled cheese and working her cooking skill when she goes into labor.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-00-32-57

Lot traits did nothing for us.  Welcome Belladonna.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-01-02-18

Vlad immediately runs to the baby and takes over.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-09-58-59

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-10-11-84

I didn’t document the other lot traits, but Victoria chose this for the little vet clinic she just bought.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-10-21-33

It seems to have everything we need.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-15-11-35

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-39-07-66

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-40-59-40

But it also has a training area for Lydia.

Lydia loves everything except this display thing.  She looks vicious!

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-42-02-54

She went around in 40 minutes with only 2 faults.  Yay, Lydia!

Lydia and Victoria become companions at this point.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-43-42-29

We get pulled from the clubhouse to see watch Marcus’ transformation.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-43-58-80

Catarina:  What the fuck just happened?  Get me out of here!

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-46-14-57

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-48-25-76

The sun took a lot out of her, so she has to stop and meditate just to be able to make it home.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-51-04-47

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-53-23-18

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-55-55-25

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-57-28-00

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-03 23-56-46-98

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-03-42-77

Are you kidding me?  I’m not ready for proposals.  Damn you , MCCC.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-07-35-86

LMAO!

Lilith:  Well, if that jerk is going to get married, I better go buy a Penthouse.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-03-55-44

Caleb: I can’t believe we’re engaged!  I can’t wait to get married.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-04-27-92

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-05-30-12

Screw you, MCCC.  I did try to cancel the wedding, which made it so that Caleb couldn’t move in.  LOL

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-06-37-27

At least something came from it.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-09-43-22

Also, Victoria turned Brant Heckerling and this lady who’s name I can’t recall because my game isn’t open.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-11-06-63

About this time, we get our first successful holiday out of the way.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-08-22-80

A quick meditation to make it home because I keep the poor girl out until her vampire powers are almost depleted.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-26-59-85

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-19-48-62

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-04 00-32-13-66

A family dance party seems a pretty good place to stop for now.
