Chapter 5.0

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 11-03-19-38.jpg

We left off with Scarlet freezing to death over her dinner.  She changes clothes and heads inside fast.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 11-43-46-69.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 11-56-59-86.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-01-34-26.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-02-20-19.jpg

Aaron:  Did you miss me?

It’s only been 24 hours dude.  Seriously.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-04-22-09.jpg

Here is the set up for the club gathering.  Two helping on the rocket, two in the microscopes and one in the telescope.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-05-54-77.jpg

Oh!  I can’t believe I forgot the last member was grandma Robin.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-06-01-67.jpg

Building rockets is hungry work.  She whips out some pancakes she was hoarding in her inventory to feed everyone.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-08-09-67.jpg

An exhausted Scarlet gets a jump on planting.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-16-29-86.jpg

Soon, the rocket ship was ready for takeoff on its maiden voyage.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-18-46-49.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-20-21-36.jpg

Robin invited Scarlet out to a play and it sucked.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-20-46-15.jpg

She needs to upgrade a few sprinklers for her aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-21-32-41.jpg

Omg, no!  Her first kid has to be conceived in the rocket…not an abduction!

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-24-48-24.jpg

Miserable or not, I’m just glad she did not get pregnant.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-28-40-12.jpg

Maxing logic for her aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-29-06-69.jpg

Oh crap. I forgot about Winterfest.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-30-41-77.jpg

Not like the house has 6 computers already.  Thanks, Santa.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-34-01-15.jpgTS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-33-51-20.jpg

While ruling an alien colony, Scarlet maxes her rocket science skill.  She got three levels during this trip.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-34-38-09.jpg

She returns and works the rest of the night on logic.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-34-46-03.jpg


TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-36-19-27.jpg

Geoffrey Landgraab was out.  Scarlet got invited on an outing by Aaron.

Geoffrey:  I can’t believe you demolished my old homestead.  Savages!

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-37-15-66.jpg

She is related to most everyone in this shot.  In the far back left, is Paige.  The rest are assorted cousins.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-39-05-70.jpg

New friend.  Even after spending most of the outing with Paige, the social bar is still only half filled.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-45-54-62.jpg

She called over Father Winter for a romp through the stars.  No baby though.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-48-06-67.jpg

Time passes and upgrades suck ass, but we finally made it to Sixam.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-50-00-50.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 12-51-37-00.jpg

This one is lazy and mean.  We don’t want that kind of person as a friend.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-10-57-86.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-12-48-58.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-15-34-37.jpg

Back home again, the candles are removed from her cake and she chows down.  Then she shoves it in her inventory.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-17-35-48.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-20-24-44.jpg

We almost missed New year’s.  Whoops.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-24-58-86.jpg

She works the garden until it was time to watch the countdown.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-40-24-62.jpg

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).

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-43-44-61.jpg

For hours, the mean alien was all that was here.  It was boring, so Scarlet went collecting.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-50-04-76.jpg

In the 18 hours over the course of 3 visits, we find our FIRST male alien.  His name is Stephan something or other.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-51-10-37.jpg

She was already in a flirty mood and it was contagious.  It wasn’t long before the romance got into full swing.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-52-48-31.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-53-44-62.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-53-17-05.jpg

First kisses, becoming a couple, and a hickey later, Scarlet completes her New Year’s resolution with a little bit of time to spare.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-54-26-37.jpg

Adrianna shows up again.  Maybe she is on the lookout for a man too.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-55-31-82.jpg

Best friend lady walks by during the proposal that Stephan turned down.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-56-01-69.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-56-09-09.jpg

It always works on the second try.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-58-49-41.jpg

Ooh she’s pretty.  Too bad she’s almost an elder.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 13-59-06-77.jpg

Haha.  Before heading home, Scarlet whips cake out of her pocket.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-01-42-46.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-03-30-13.jpgTS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-04-30-26.jpg

Since she is basically done, Scarlet is eager to get another item checked off of her to-do list.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-05-19-07.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-07-28-95.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-07-51-24.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-08-02-31.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-08-39-07.jpg

Might as well have a club gathering since Scarlet ditched work.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-09-36-76.jpg

Everything was going good.  Scarlet was getting to know her relatives….then it happened.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-09-53-19.jpg

Stephan burnt down the kitchen.  This would have been more awesome if he had caught on fire, but oh well.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 14-10-25-77.jpg

Belladonna goes to town with the extinguisher just as the sprinklers go off.  Everyone else runs like cowards.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-33-20-67.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-36-48-27.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-36-57-97.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-41-13-22.jpg

Her and that cake, I swear.  If she didn’t almost starve every two hours, I’d have gotten rid of it by now.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-46-17-05.jpg

I almost caught Stephan upstairs dancing.  It was too cute.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-46-28-82.jpg

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).

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-53-36-16.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 15-54-34-09.jpg

Yeah, there’s no reason for a wedding.  Half the guests will probably die right in the middle of the ceremony.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-01-37-06.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-23-02-80.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-43-40-98.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-44-04-66.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-48-14-01.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-49-47-50.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-56-04-00.jpg

Labor pains hit the next morning after a night of dancing.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-57-33-02.jpg

Knowing how MCCC trolls me, we put out three bassinets, just in case.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 16-58-39-73.jpg

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 17-02-33-59.jpg

Exhausted, Scarlet is forced to become good friend with both babies before heading to bed.

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 22-51-22-86.jpg

After a nap, Scarlet and Stephan switch into their human guises (mainly so I could see what Stephan looked like and hubba hubba).

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 22-51-55-46.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 22-52-00-66.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-29 22-52-07-25.jpg

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.
