The Riverview Anti-Shark League: Kelsey's Orphanage Project

Prologue: This Isn't Sunset Valley
Kelsey's Blog, Week 1, Day 1, 12.45pm




So here I am arriving this morning.

Here's here, of course! Riverview. Four Bridges Park, to be precise. I like bridges because sharks can't go on bridges but I can and therefore I can drop things down onto them like this: SPLAT! That's the noise of an anti-shark pellet. But then, of course it is. What other noise would an anti-shark pellet make?



I started to walk up towards the City Hall, because that's where boring official things happen, and you need to do boring and official things to get a shark hunter's license. Like prove you're sane and that. In my case, that'll be a formality. I was the best shark hunter in Sunset Valley, I'll have you know!



There was this weird woman standing in my way though. Really weird. I mean, she wore white. Such a boring colour. The washing machine had given me some new clothes in pink and purple. So I went up to say hi to her, and maybe give her my scarf because otherwise people will bully her for having such a colourless outfit.

She introduced herself as my fairy godmother, Addison.



I have a fairy godmother! Awesome! I love fairy godmothers because they do cool things like turning handsome princes into pumpkins and I like pumpkins. I told her this. She looked confused.

But that's okay. Maybe she's an apprentice. Fairy godmothers need training too.



So I said to her, great! I need a house then, please. See, Mum. I said please.

And she said no. No?!



Apparently, it's the recession. Cutbacks in the fairy godmother departmental budget. They can't have custard creams in meetings now. And they don't have any more money to give out free stuff.

So I can have a house, but I have to raise orphans in it. Cool! A whole army of little Anti-Shark Wardens! We'll win in no time!



Apparently, that's not the point. But who cares. Addison doesn't have to know if she's going to be a spoilsport.

Kelsey's orphanage is being run under the rules set out by the lovely Schipperke here. There are a couple of slight tweaks, however. Kelsey will be adopting 26 orphans, rather than having 10 weeks to complete as many as possible, and toddlers will be maxing the xylophone as well as having all books read to them before being aged up. I'm flipping a coin for the gender of each orphan, with heads being a boy and tails a girl, and naming alphabetically.

Interesting start to your orphanage project!  I love the idea of the fairy godmother.  Good luck with your story, Ariana.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. Kelsey would thank you too but I think she's arguing with the fridge. It's best to leave her to it sometimes.

The Girl in Orange
Kelsey's Blog, Week 1 Day 1, 7.37pm




So Addison the trainee fairy godmother gave me a house. I asked for it to be pink and purple and it is pink and purple. Maybe fairy godmothers are all that they're cracked up to be after all.

But on the other hand she didn't give me any money. I have exactly 0 simoleans. 0. If numbers could be in capitals I'd write it in capitals too. Actually, why can't you have capital numbers? Excuse me, I need to write to the Prime Minister and ask.

Week 1, Day 1, 7.42pm

That should do it.



So yeah. I had to go to the community gardens to get food. Which is okay. Except for the lack of brightly coloured food. I didn't even have any money to buy food dye to make it more interesting like I used to in Sunset Valley. There was this really boring woman in brown glaring at me too, so I glared back. Treat others as you wish to be treated.



And then I realised somebody else was glaring at me.



She asked me what I was doing so I explained I was eating the peppers I'd found on the tree because I had no money. Like literally no money. It's not even metaphorically no money. Turns out she thought they were her peppers and so she was a little bit annoyed.

But I couldn't really listen very well because I was too distracted thinking she looked like a goldfish. I mean. Dressed in orange and yellow, with orange and yellow hair, and pulling a face like that? What's a girl to think?



And then she said... wait for it... that she thought goldfish would be able to defeat sharks! That's so awesome! Someone who finally realises the peril the world is in!

I can tell that me and Becca are going to be good friends.



Because she was nice and also clever enough to understand the dangers of sharks, I told her about my fairy godmother and the whole orphanage thing. She thought it was a brilliant idea to raise the kids to eventually hunt sharks, and offered to move in and help.



I may have lead her to believe the house was slightly more orange, though.



Here, for all my lovely fans, is a overhead shot of the house. I almost died trying to take it because I had to catch a lift on a penguin.

What do you mean penguins can't fly?

Kelsey agrees, she thinks everyone has been ignoring her fight for far too long!

Yeah, it's a bit of an unfortunate face. Especially with the orange hair. I can't remember what interaction caused it though, which is a shame.

Thanks! Yeah, the house is... bright.

I can't really remember why I picked sharks to be honest. It came from a screenie in my CrumpleSteel DecaDynasty where Kelsey was fishing in the pool and her sisters didn't know why, and then sort of became a running joke after that. Thanks!

First Day On The Job
Kelsey's Blog, Week 1, Day 3, 10.11am


So, fellow shark hunters of Carl and Pam's Sims 3 Forum (I need a shorter name for you guys! FSHs?), yesterday was my first day of my new job.

And let me tell you, it was a DISASTER with several capital D's.

I went to City Hall to apply to be a shark hunter. I spoke to a man, who sent me to another man, who sent me down a maze of corridors where I found a janitor with a trolley of toilet roll who told me I was in a staff-only area and called a security guard who threw me out of City Hall. I went back into City Hall, because shark killing is important!! and you can't not apply for a license because then the sharks wouldn't be defeated, spoke to a different man, who sent me to a woman in an office which smelt of cheese and then...

Well, anyway. Maybe I shouldn't tell you exactly what happened. It's long, and it involves ham.



In the end I spoke to a bloke who told me he'd never heard of shark hunting licenses. WHAT?! Everyone has! But anyway, he told me he had something very very similar, so I applied for that.

It's not my fault I didn't read the forms, he told me it was similar! Who am I to disagree with a man in a smart shirt?

But yeah. I'm now an acrobat.



I asked what being an acrobat entails and he said "mime a bit". So I went down in front of the theatre and mimed being stuck in a box.



The one bloke who came to watch COULDN'T EVEN WORK OUT WHAT I WAS DOING. I withdrew from him membership of the hat-wearing society.



Or I would have done. But then I fell over. It's not my fault anyway. It was the force of his confusion that knocked me over. Billy Caspian, we shall NEVER be friends! EVER!

It also hurt quite a lot. I'm going to write to the Prime Minister and demand that pavements be made out of bouncy castles from now on. That would also be good because then they would be stripey.



He did give me a tip though. Which was nice. But I still haven't forgiven him. I'm like a tarantula, I don't forget. Or wait, is it tigers that don't forget? Or donkeys?



I decided to mime it being windy next, to pretend that the falling over had been all part of the act. They look convinced to me, don't they?



By this time I had quite a large crowd of people watching me. Maybe, if I could mesmerise them by my amazing impression of being battered by the wind, it would work like hypnosis and I could teach them all to hate sharks too...

But then I fell over, so it didn't work.



Because I was the first one home, I made dinner. Salad. Mmm salad.



I asked Becca what she'd been up to all day. Painting. Why didn't I think of that? So many less bruises. But then, she wasn't conned by a man in a shirt. Conned, I tell you.



Before I move onto the other bit of news, the sleeping arrangements chez moi. We can't afford beds. But at least they're feathery. Which is important in a bed.



This morning Addison asked to meet me down at the end of the central island. I went, because it was either that or spend some more time pretending to be stuck in an invisible box. Which I'm not good at. Which is a shame as it's my job to be good at it.

She told me the first orphan would be arriving on Wednesday, and I'd have to take time off to look after it. Fine by me. I can give it it's initial anti-shark training and avoid falling over in front of Billy Caspian any more times.



I didn't tell her that though. She wouldn't approve and would give me a lecture about being sensible or something.

Instead we did this weird hand signal thing. Does that mean I'm part of a secret society now? YAY! I'm part of a secret society!

Well, you do have to be agile and flexible to hunt those nasty sharks, so in a way, Kelsey's new job is kind of similar to a shark hunting license. ;)

Maybe we should be called Forumites?

There should be more shark hunters. I'm not Insane. ;D I uhh... mean Nuroict, but everyone knows  those sharks are going to attack. DUH! It says so on my signeture. :P And Kelsey? Don't use blue. It attracts sharks because sharks live in blue water. 8)

I love how Kelsey's character is developing.She is almost like an actress who in a popular show that gets her own spin of series.

I really love the way you write and maybe I spend too much time with insane Sims but Kels makes perfect sense to me.

Kelsey was my favorite from the original story, I was so glad to see she got a story of her own.
