We left off with Scarlet freezing to death over her dinner. She changes clothes and heads inside fast.
She buys the old Landgraab Estate in Oasis Springs and replaces it with an updated design.
I don’t actually think she is related to the welcome wagon.
With 8 happy gnomes back home, Scarlet was able to hoard all the seasonal packets and open them on her new lawn that doesn’t actually fit in with the desert landscape.
Scarlet: I pay a fortune in water bills and gardener to make sure my yard looks like my old one.
Looking through the club scene, she found one devoted to science. Natalie was the leader and only member. Scarlet joins and then has Belladonna, Opal, Aaron, and someone else join.
She starts a gathering at home and gets immediate help building her new rocket.
Aaron: Did you miss me?
It’s only been 24 hours dude. Seriously.
Here is the set up for the club gathering. Two helping on the rocket, two in the microscopes and one in the telescope.
Oh! I can’t believe I forgot the last member was grandma Robin.
Building rockets is hungry work. She whips out some pancakes she was hoarding in her inventory to feed everyone.
An exhausted Scarlet gets a jump on planting.
Soon, the rocket ship was ready for takeoff on its maiden voyage.
While she’s out of the way, it was time to organize the garden that took three days to plant.
Her outgoing trait is a real bummer. She won’t do anything if her social is in the red.
Robin invited Scarlet out to a play and it sucked.
She needs to upgrade a few sprinklers for her aspiration.
Omg, no! Her first kid has to be conceived in the rocket…not an abduction!
Miserable or not, I’m just glad she did not get pregnant.
Maxing logic for her aspiration.
Oh crap. I forgot about Winterfest.
Not like the house has 6 computers already. Thanks, Santa.
While ruling an alien colony, Scarlet maxes her rocket science skill. She got three levels during this trip.
She returns and works the rest of the night on logic.
Geoffrey Landgraab was out. Scarlet got invited on an outing by Aaron.
Geoffrey: I can’t believe you demolished my old homestead. Savages!
She is related to most everyone in this shot. In the far back left, is Paige. The rest are assorted cousins.
New friend. Even after spending most of the outing with Paige, the social bar is still only half filled.
She called over Father Winter for a romp through the stars. No baby though.
Time passes and upgrades suck ass, but we finally made it to Sixam.
Where she finds her sister. I know her sister is her best friend and an alien, but in the spirit of the challenge, this will not complete her befriend an alien requirement.
This one is lazy and mean. We don’t want that kind of person as a friend.
So, we zero in on the next one we find. Her name doesn’t interest me. She’s nice and that’s all that matters.
A couple of alien interactions, a lot of jokes and finally they become best friends. Good timing because Scarlet is about dead. She’s been on Sixam for about 8 hours without food or potty.
How the heck do you get the party thing going? I want to do that.
Back home again, the candles are removed from her cake and she chows down. Then she shoves it in her inventory.
New aspiration requires a 3 jobs to level 3, so she becomes an astronaut. Next is something to do with skills. Fitness was the closest to level 5, so treadmill it is.
We almost missed New year’s. Whoops.
She works the garden until it was time to watch the countdown.
Sixam again. Some of the plants still haven’t come in yet. Grr. There’s some serious money in alien plants (or there was before they fuckered up gardening after seasons).
For hours, the mean alien was all that was here. It was boring, so Scarlet went collecting.
In the 18 hours over the course of 3 visits, we find our FIRST male alien. His name is Stephan something or other.
She was already in a flirty mood and it was contagious. It wasn’t long before the romance got into full swing.
First kisses, becoming a couple, and a hickey later, Scarlet completes her New Year’s resolution with a little bit of time to spare.
Adrianna shows up again. Maybe she is on the lookout for a man too.
Best friend lady walks by during the proposal that Stephan turned down.
It always works on the second try.
Ooh she’s pretty. Too bad she’s almost an elder.
Haha. Before heading home, Scarlet whips cake out of her pocket.
Scarlet had brought home a dead alien on one of her voyages. Stephan, who has now moved in, can revive it. How neat. Scarlet never was able to. Kept saying her brain power was too low.
Since she is basically done, Scarlet is eager to get another item checked off of her to-do list.
I canceled her going to work so that she could take pregnancy test. Stephan was super excited and got distracted from cooking. He has level 8 in mixology, so he joins the culinary career.
Might as well have a club gathering since Scarlet ditched work.
Everything was going good. Scarlet was getting to know her relatives….then it happened.
Stephan burnt down the kitchen. This would have been more awesome if he had caught on fire, but oh well.
Belladonna goes to town with the extinguisher just as the sprinklers go off. Everyone else runs like cowards.
Life goes on after a near death experience. The baby bump grows, Scarlet has to clean up after morning sickness, and Stephan is whacking off in the bath.
Not much to report lately. Scarlet can now instant upgrade so, she can use that once in a while, but does spend the rest of her pregnancy at home upgrading everything in the house.
The plan was to have a big wedding, but certain things are coming to light that prevents it. Caleb’s death was the first in a long string of mourning moodlets.
Her and that cake, I swear. If she didn’t almost starve every two hours, I’d have gotten rid of it by now.
I almost caught Stephan upstairs dancing. It was too cute.
He stops dancing as soon as I saw him and heads over to the treadmill.
Stephan: Look at me skilling instead of being a waste of space. Go, me!
I think Stephan is clued into the fact that I liked Aaron’s single lifestyle (and 90% single lifestyle of all of Scarlet’s ancestors).
Yeah, there’s no reason for a wedding. Half the guests will probably die right in the middle of the ceremony.
Per her aspiration, Scarlet switches to the Tech Guru career. She hired in at level 4 and is now hacking her performance looking for a promotion to level 5.
It goes horribly wrong, but the loss in performance was not enough to prevent her eventual promotion later that day.
She still needs to make a video game or app, but right now she’s too hungry to stay at the computer for long. Good thing she has cake.
With the rate that people are dropping dead, it was Scarlet who insisted that she goes out when her dad calls that evening. Robin, Belladonna, and Natalie are all getting up there and should be meeting Grim any time now.
Labor pains hit the next morning after a night of dancing.
Knowing how MCCC trolls me, we put out three bassinets, just in case.
It’s twins! MCCC did say she was having a boy and a girl, but this is one of the rare times that it proved true.
Exhausted, Scarlet is forced to become good friend with both babies before heading to bed.
After a nap, Scarlet and Stephan switch into their human guises (mainly so I could see what Stephan looked like and hubba hubba).
Her last requirement of marrying an alien is now done.
Congrats, Scarlet, now we just need two perfect little babies to grow up as smart and sweet as you.
