Chapter One: Cornelia & Co.

This is Cornelia Goth. I consider her the founder because she’s really the one in control. Gunther’s only around because no one else will put up with him.

This is Cornelia and Gunther’s son Mortimer. Mortimer has a bad attitude, but he’s an artist so it kinda goes with the territory. He’s also got a crush on his little weird lipped friend Bella.

Daddy Goth, Gunther. His lifetime wish is to be a Renaissance sim. But this guy can’t seem to stick with one thing long enough, so it might as well be Jack of All Trades. No worries. He quit his job when Dolls took over.

Aunt Agnes. Agnes the Hagness, that is. We’ll be seeing a lot of Ms. Crumplebottom.

Cornelia thinks it’s a good idea for little sis to move in. It’s just not healthy for her to continue to live in a half decorated house, on unemployment, with a tombstone of her dead boyfriend on the lot.

Agnes thinks Cornelia should butt out. After all, her son has issues, which we’ll get to momentarily. But, in the end, Cornelia was able to talk Agnes down and she agreed to live at Goth Manor.

Makeover time!

Chapter Two: Random Romance and Bad Influences

Cornelia is no longer an Angsty Emo Chick. Less Wednesday Addams, more Morticia, I think.


What? Where did the Hagness go?
Aggie: “Take that Metro”

-Don't forget-

Guther, you might have options now.

And onward we go…

Agnes, you might want to rethink this. You have no idea.

*Smacks head and considers taking free will away* I swear, she doesn’t even know him!

Well, she does now. In a biblical sense. Hey, sometimes you have to go along with Story Progression.


This is only one of Mortimer’s issues. How unkind of Agnes to throw it in Cornelia’s face.

This little girl is the other. Mortimer tends to skip school and hang out with her at the park. I have no idea how he got his homework assignment if he ditched school. And why does her brother resemble a guppy in this pic?

Cornelia, this is where the §100 bubble bath you bought at the store went. Mort’s out of control. Intervention anyone?

Thank you. Didn't expect many comments so soon. I'm going to work hard to keep the story going. I've taken to saving my own save game backups to combat patches. I cannot wait for SN in September and who better to start Moonlight Falls with than a Goth. I hope they have a Goth relative in town.

Looks Amazing love the makeovers

I've always thought Agnes and Cornelia were lookers. They just needed some help and with makeup, less is more.

Chapter 3:Unwanted In-Laws, First Wives, and Karma. Ouch!

Gunther- “Cornelia! Why is your sister still here?”
Agnes- “I can hear you, you know.”

-In other news-

Cornelia- “Omigosh! A baby! Who’s the father?”
Agnes- “Awww shucks. I forgot to ask!”

Agnes- “Omigosh! A baby! Gunther’s the father!
Cornelia- “Awww shucks. Don’t remind me!”

Gunther keeps an eagle eye on these two. Mortimer’s grades started to slip after hanging with this Bella. There’s no way Mort would be up to no good on his own. So far so good.

-Mortimer slipped away after he finished his geometry-
-Of course, Bella went looking for him…er…him-

“Oh, no he didn’t.”

“Oh. Yes. I. Did.”

Agnes- *Yelp* “A g-g-ghost!”
Gunther- *snidely* “Yeah, and you haven’t seen any of those around before. How long’ve you been here now? What’s that? Too long?”  *turns head to look over at Lolita*
Cornelia- “If you even think about looking at her, I’ll slap you into the middle of next century.”
Gunther- “I have no idea what you’re talking about, dear. Whose dead, hot, young first wife is standing next to him? I don’t know the guy.”

Agnes- “My Water Broke!”
Cornelia- “Arghhh! See what you did First Wife?? I would ban you from the property if Old Smelly Victor hadn’t left it in his will to leave you here!
Gunther- “Not the time, dear.”
Cornelia- “Shut it, Gunther! Agnes, just huff and puff—I promise you won’t blow the house down. I’ll be upstairs lecturing the Man-Beast.”

And so, Aggie, as always, did it alone. Welcome to the world Shapely Crumplebottom!!!

-Karma is a witch, isn’t it?-

Agnes- “Cornelia, just huff and puff—I promise you won’t wake Gunther up. I’ll be upstairs putting the baby down.”

And so, Cornelia did it alone, with the Man Beast lying a foot away undisturbed. Welcome to the world Raven Goth!!!

*This is a long one, but the last for a few days.

Chapter 4:Aliens, Rotting Psyches, and Shamu. Gross.

Those women’s organizations lie when they say being a single mother is rewarding, at least in Agnes’ estimation.

Guther- “Do you forgive me for being a Man Beast and missing our daughter’s birth?”
Cornelia- “I guess—hey, no flirting.”

Cornelia- *Cooing* “She looks just like me!”

Agnes- *Cooing* “Your father was an alien. He’s gone back to his planet. You have no choice but to look like me.”

-Ah, busy moms need a break every now and again-

Cornelia- “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody—how many times was that? Grrr. Bloody Mary, Bl…”

Gunther ages up in the bathroom where he’s upgrading the plumbing. Mortimer just laughs at him and thinks…
“Wow, Dad, you’re gonna die soon.”

Another milestone alone. Happy B-day Aggie.

Cornelia got invited to the deadest party in history. She took time away from two screaming nooboos, a grouchy sister, a cross-dressing son, and the Man Beast to do what?

Yell at Vita for wasting her time of course!

Cornelia- “Nice time, Vita. NOT!! Party SUCKS dude!”

Shapely aged up nicely. She does seem to favor Agnes and not the Jared—um alien.

Raven aged up and enjoys every moment of everyone’s suffering.

Mort aged up next.

-After a quick trip to Hot Topic-

Art is his eternal, restless, black soul. His place of misery; his hot, sticky, rotting psyche.
Is that deep enough for ya, Mort? You artist types…

-Someone isn’t enamored by his hot, sticky, rotting—whatever-

Simis- “Young Man, you just look strange…and vile…and…etc, etc, blah, blah, blah.”
Mortimer- *Note 2 Self* “Bella’s dad is such a freak.”

Mortimer- “Your dad just weirded out on me.”
Bella- “Yeah. No surprise there. God, he’s so gross. I hate my life.”
Mortimer- “Me too. Wanna go out?”
Bella- “Nah, Arlo’ll kill us.”
Mortimer- “But I thought you hated life…? Nevermind. Bought you something.”

-But for Bella, there was just something about Mortimer’s hot, sticky, rotting psyche-

Mortimer- “Mmmm. What. Mmmm. ‘Bout. Mmmm. Arlo? Mmmm.”
Bella- “Arlo’s. Mmmm. So. Mmmm. Gross. Mmmm.”

Gunther- “Hey break it up you two. So, young lady, what are your goals for life?”
Bella- “What? Mortimer, your dad’s so gross. God. Who does this?”


Motherhood is a good look for Cornelia. Calm, Cool, and Collected, the baby senses her inner ch’i.

Motherhood. Not so good for Agnes. Frazzled, Dazzled, and Razzled, the baby’s hoping someone comes along and rescues her from mommy and any voices mommy might be hearing.

Growing up is not hard to do. Happy B-day Cornelia.

Get up Prudence. Have some respect for yourself.

If the babysitter fries one. more. fritter. I know something.

Prom! Mortimer and Bella are going steady now.

And Bella’s mother isn’t taking it well apparently. Why is she in the house at 1:30 AM? Who let her in? I didn’t. This is not a FAIL. This is just weird. And gross.

Good one, Grandma Prue.

Agnes- “If you’re so sleepy leave! No one let you in here anyway.”
Jocasta- *Note 2 Self* Never accept food from a Goth. They keep a nasty kitchen. Gross.

Agnes- “That’s right, girlfriend. Keep sleeping. Hey kids! SeaWorld just dropped off Shamu! Bring me a bucket of water!”

Happy B-day Shapely!

Happy B-day Raven!

Thank you so much. I like making over townies. Some of them aren't too bad. Erra, excepting Twinbrook. There's nothing a makeover station can do for them.

Ehmm *clears throat to speak*

Thank you so much. I really appreciate the feedback. But the Goths and all their quirkiness give you so much material that you hardly have to make anything up ;D

Good luck with Mortimer. In my game he was difficult to play. I think he must have a hidden trait of evil or rebellious...LOL  He spent most of his teen years grounded ;)
