I must apologize for the opening pic. It was pitch black in Granite Falls and I had to lighten the hell out of this.
Rachel is not fixed. She’s on vacation with Robin and it still thinks she is at work.
Rachel still has a lot to do before she can move out though. I hate to think we might need to cut her loose and have Belladonna do yet another aspiration.
Also, so far, none of the plants have recuperated after winter. I am hoping this visit kick start their growth.
I was wrong apparently last chapter. Allen ended up being the 1st of the Kiss 10 sims. She might invite over Johnny and get his kiss counted. Robin still needs to pick up a 3rd romance too.
Crap, I see she needs boyfriends after all. This is my first look at the 4th milestone in a long, long time. I wonder if the gold dates are retroactive. She’s had 4 or 5 gold dates, but only 1 boyfriend.
Well, there is growth, but nothing to harvest. They will hang out for the day to encourage the plantlife.
Robin just relaxed for most of the day.
Then this happened. I though she was only in her 2nd trimester. My bad. MCCC says she is having a single girl.
Rachel heads into the deep woods to see how the plants are there. It’s worse than at the camping areas, but she did grab some bugs.
And we found bouncing turds with googly eyes. It ended up being dust sprites.
They did not dally too long as Robin does have to have her home birth.
I’m not sure what the light festival under feet are for, but she gives birth to Natalie (completing the Boolpropn naming scheme) and her TWIN, Krystal.
Belladonna wants to complete her career so she can quit.
But she got a bonus instead. I heard the money jingle, but didn’t notice a change in household funds.
Opal invites over the elderly mixologist guy.
She drank deeply from him forcing him to pass out, which is all part of Opal’s evil plan.
When the man wakes up, Opal convinces him to take the coffin for a tumble.
Sans: Are you trying to kill me? I’m too old for this!
Opal: Oh, you can handle one more time.
Sans: Nope, I don’t think so.
Opal kills the poor old man, see Grim, and then nothing.
I reloaded the game three times, woohoo’d the guy to death three times, and three times she did not witness his death.
She even got a phone call commemorating his death. She has his urn and everything. I have read a lot on the EA help pages that this has been happening for years. I’m really getting annoyed with how badly this game is going.
Now Opal is going to have to find a new elder to kill off.
500th time’s the charm?
Opal: God, I hope so.
5 piles of laundry later, Sans has died for the last time. If it doesn’t work this time, we will have to give up.
Please note how Opal stays in bed. She is literally frozen there while Grim reads the death tablet.
I am starting to hate this game. She couldn’t even plead for him because he was reaped before she could move again.
BUT, for the first time ever, she actually witnesses the death. This, of course, DID NOT complete her aspiration, so I freaking cheated. Sue me.
There, proof I cheated. Screw you, game.
Oh, and meet our new family member. The stuck vampire streak.
Freaking Scarlet died of old age at work. As you can see, everyone here witnessed the death just fine. Everyone except maybe 3 co-workers are elders, so I hope Robin tops her career before they start dropping.
She does complete her case and it was an elderly woman who was going around stealing dentures from the Old Folks’ Home.
She had enough clues to research without having to visit another crime scene.
Robin: Is this your mess? We frown upon vandalizing the dog park.
Dude: Wasn’t me. In fact, I was here cleaning it up before you so rudely stopped me.
Robin: Just confess now! We have multiple reports that you have been eating all the dog food at the Dog Park.
Dude: Okay, okay. It was me! I’m just a homeless NPC and I am always hungry. I couldn’t help myself.
So, she solved yesterday’s case and today’s case in one day. No promotion, of course, but at least she can go to work alone for a few days.
Robin: I am so glad you called for this date, I really needed to kiss you for my aspiration.
Of course, Victoria “just happens” to show up.
Opal wished on the well and got her last promotion! She has the weekend off, but we have no interest in that right now.
Fraps died, so I missed a bit of the family. We arrive back to see Robin getting abducted when she was on the way to age up the twins.
Opal does it since Belladonna was not around and Rachel hates kids.
Natalie – Independent
Krystal – Charmer (LIES)
I think they may be identical.
Opal: Well, my work here is done. Later, sucker.
Rachel: Nooo! Take me with you!
Rachel the really dumb sim. She hates kids, yet she chooses to read a skillbook for three bad moodlets regarding being near kids and something else. She has subsequently been locked out of the nursery.
Oh yeah. Belladonna is doing her book writing for her after work requirement.
I’m pretty sure Natalie just wants to watch her.
Back from her abduction, it’s time to get this potty started.
Krystal threw two fits and got scolded by Robin the second she returned from outer space.
So, super sell. The daily sell off nets about $150k. The family has just become millionaires.
Another promotion down. I think only one more to go.
Belladonna finally gets her writing done and heads over to the wishing well. I was not expecting a promotion immediately!
I think I’d rather be the boss winning the lottery.
It’s vacation time. No one was prepared for toddlers, so Belladonna gets the grilled cheese made.
And I unlock the lot to make a nursery.
Oh for Pete’s sake. Oh well, there’s bugs in the background Rachel can grab.
She spends 24 hours wandering around each area. By the time they are forced to leave because of Robin, most of these have sprouted. I think spring switched to summer partway through.
OOPS! I seriously never paid any attention to Allen’s personal life. Also, he’s old 😦
Omg, Natalie knock it off! It’s like 8pm, so Krystal is going to cry over this for almost a full day.
Wake up! Wake up right now!
I hate to say it, but I turned off autonomy. Rachel needs to read and she was refusing. She went from level 4 to 8 right here.
Potty training (level 2 to 3 for Natalie and 1 to 3 for Krystal) is done.
Oh yeah, this is what was happening when Fraps stopped working. Allen is the father.
They got a new laundry room because they kept getting laundry piles out of nowhere and they just kept being picked up and put in inventories. Robin went to look at it before heading up to give birth.
Don’t make me remember their names! Kidding. The boy is Tyler and he’s our Bad Apple. I’ll tell you why in a little bit.
Robin is definitely not a slacker at work, that’s for sure.
Robin: You are under arrest!
Lucille: Yeah, get that pervert out of here!
Robin: Admit it! You have been at the gym peeping into the Men’s changing room!
Lady: No, not me! I swear!
Robin: The evidence says otherwise. Just confess and maybe I’ll talk to the judge about going easy on you.
Lady: Okay, okay! I did it! But it wasn’t what you were thinking! My friends dared me to look. They wanted to know which men wore boxers and which ones wore briefs.
The new Chief, guys!
We have now completed all 10 Careers for the bonus!
Back with Rachel, we got lucky!
Before winter, she discovered 3 or 4 of the wild plants and then we had to wait until spring to plant them. She made 3 excellent Fireleaf Extracts (out of 8 made).
Robin is left to her own devices for now. With four kids, she is seriously busy.
Then we got this notification, which means there will be FOUR toddlers. I didn’t calculate correctly.
Nothing like this to slap you in the face and let you know just how much time has passed.
I can only laugh or I’d cry. Rachel will complete the insects before she’ll discover her 5th wild plant.
I just randomized the names, so here is Tiffany who is Inquisitive.
Tyler will be our bad apple because he is the first of the four to be human. I checked to see if he was a vampire while we were in CAS and saw that he is Clingy.
Also, there is a thunderstorm so they grew up upset.
Right now, we still have these Aspirations left to do:
Outdoor Enthusiast – Rachel (3/4)
Serial Romantic – Robin (3/4)
Friend of Animals – JUST saw that this wasn’t done. I think MCCC controls strays, because I haven’t seen any yet.
We also have to max all the skills. Left to do is:
Herbalism – Rachel – level 8
Photography – Robin – level 2
