Chapter 189: It's like I'm Invisible
« Reply #575 on: November 11, 2012, 07:08:00 AM »
First day of High School. A whole new cafeteria and a whole new battle for vegetable free food. I brought some fish, one for my science teacher and the rest for the cooks, so that they can make me something edible.


Mom's become a Top Gun, and she's walking around in her pilot glasses all the time. I wonder if she'll do the same when she has an astronauts suit?


I spend some hours each day working on my fashion sketches, my plan is to have enough to decorate the walls in here. I need to show my prospective clients that I have vision. I would really like to do them in my favorite bright neon colors, but grandma J convinced me that all the best fashion magazines were in black and white, so my sketches should be too.


Speaking of grandma J, she's still trying to get that buggy Vizard of Vine to register. She's even enlisted all the grandmothers taking turns helping out in the garden in order to work it. She's made over 1000 bottles and is a lot of LTR points richer but still the challenge is grey.


Grandma C is playing the piano a lot. She's trying to get over 25000 simeoleons in tips, so she's been providing all the music for moms parties. And when there isn't a party, she's practicing all her different compositions.


When I'm not doing anything fun I have homework. Seriously, it's the most boring thing in the world! Besides, I alwayf feel It's like I'm Invisible when I sit there all by myself.


You can see me right?


Who ever heard of scheduling prom on a Tuesday night? I think that's just crazy. Anyway, I just hope no one is wearing the same thing as me!


Mom was really disappointed that I didn't get voted prom queen. But I don really care, there are worse thing than not winning prom queen. Like having your crush avoid you all night (Sylvester I'm talking about you!) or getting in a fight (I don't have trashy taste!). At least my prom picture was great, and I really liked the backdrop. Oh, and yes, I rocked the smustle. Thank's grandma K!


Congrats mom! She got promoted to astronaut today! That just leaves the six best friends and then she's ready to become immortal.


Mom was having an impromptu celebration when I got home from school. She had invited lots of people, but was mostly glued to dads side. I convinced her to stop hogging him. She's got lots of guest to entertain and I wanted time with dad.


We took some pictures together in the photo booth. Dad says I look a lot like mom when she was young. I don't know about that, but I do know where I got my edge from. My dad is one cool dude.


And funny too!

Everything about Beata is fun! The way she dresses, the way she thinks.
That was one very original driving lesson! Very clever, too. :)

Thanks!

I decided to make the 8th immortal the "just for fun" one, so that I would feel more motivated to play now that the file is so buggy and slow. I seriously have to resetsim* every other game day now, or at least of the Auroras just freeze up.

I will finish this, I will.

Chapter 190: New military haircuts
« Reply #578 on: November 11, 2012, 11:29:57 AM »
Life is good. Today I got on honor roll, and all the grandmas are very impressed. It's almost as if they thought I didn't have it in me.

Beata: Seriously, how can you stand eating veggies? There are bugs crawling all over them before they come into the kitchen!
Selma: Bah, don't be so squeamish! Klara cleans them of before cooking. 



Since I was doing so well in school I had lots of time for fun, like water sliding! And mom and the grandmas joined in too, well not always grandma J, she's working herself ragged down in her cellar. How she can stand it is anyone's guess.


My favorite days are Tuesdays and Thursdays and the weekend of course, because that's when dad always comes over to spend time with me. He's here the other days too, but mom gets him then.

Anyway, this being Tuesday means I get to pick what we are going to do. And I pick...

Beata: Pillow fighting!



Beata: Haha, you never say that one coming! I'm going to whup your but today!


Or maybe not!


Beata: I'll get you for that dad!
Cary: Now, now you're all mouth and no action.
Beata: Get ready to loose dad.
Cary: Bring it on girl!



After I won (ha!) I decided to work more on my sketches, so mom got to have some time with dad.

Greta: I'm so glad you can spend so much time with us here.
Cary: You know I will take any chance I get to be with my two ladies.



Seriously, can those two keep their mouths away from each other for more than two minutes? Is there any wonder I prefer my family time to be with one of my parents at a time?'

*Smochies*



Greta: I'm starting to feel tired, how about you?
Cary: I could sleep.
Greta: And I have just the bed for us to do it in...



I know my parents aren't married, but you would never guess it by looking at them. I mean, I have friends in school who's parents are married, and they don't even sleep in the same room, or even like spending as much time together as mine do.


Mom invited some of her closest friends over for a party and some video games. Actually, it was just a party to begin with, but then someone challenged mom to a game (which she lost), and since she's such a sore looser she spent the rest of the evening trying to prove she was the gaming champion or something like that.


Before the party I called everyone on the guest list and asked them to bring only non-vegetable dishes. A lot of the guests were mad at me for that, it seems a lot of sims consider vegetables an important part of their diet. They are called vegetarians. Can you imagine anything crazier than a lot of sims running around demanding everyone eat nothing but vegetables? What is the simverse coming to?


Beata: Don't be mad at me, I'm adorable! (See, it worked. Learnt that trick from grandma J!)


Oh, I just had to show you this, these two guys work with mom at the military base, one is her boss (don't ask me which one). I think the new military issue hair cut is one of the greatest fashion statements our military has ever made.


And finally, because nothing says party like dancing. Let's paaaaaarty!

Beata is so much fun! Its awesome that she gets to spend so much time with her dad. Cary is an awesome father.

Insane sims are fun to play.

The other one is her co-worker. They aren't related, but you are right, they are practically twins. That's SP sims for you.

I never play insane sims, but Beata has been fun. I don't think she's one of the most insane one there is, she's more like insane light. Her one quirk is that she just loves the cut gems down in the cellar, so she runs down there any chance she gets.

Chapter 191: To boldly go (the split infinitive)
« Reply #582 on: November 12, 2012, 07:59:51 AM »
Today mom went on her first mission to space. She is going where no Aurora had gone before, and grandma S was very jealous. Sure, she's traveled extensively but space hadn't been an option when she was young. She had some junk food with mom before seeing her of (we hear space rations is rather disgusting).


Mom was happy to go, and I think a large part of her happiness was due to grandma S' being jealous. Mom likes feeling she has something others don't.


I got up early to see mom off. I had a few hours before school so I spent some time arguing with my other self (the one that doesn't mind veggies) I won as usual.


I also worked on my sketches for a bit. I've completed one, it's men's fashion, since the guys who come to mom's parties seem more adventurous in their fashion choices than the women, and I think they might be easier to convince of my brilliance.


After school I went to my friend Mackenzie's house.


Grandma K says one of my forefathers used to live there, but when I mentioned that to Mackenzie she just rolled her eyes and told me my insane trait was showing. Apparently that was too long ago for anyone to remember...I guess the people in the Valley think my grandmas are just eccentric old ladies, not part of a immortal dynasty cabal. I don't know if I should be happy about that, or not.


I think I should probably mention that Mackenzie have two siblings, one is her sister Caro, I've told you about her before.


The other is her brother Carey. I find myself strangely attracted to him. He seems so familiar to me, and I'm very comfortable in his company, at the same time as I get lots of butterflies in my stomach. I wonder why?


Anyway, I love hanging out at their house because their parents are never around (unlike my house where I can never get away from the grandmas) so we have lots of time to just hang around and do homework (they take school very seriously).

Beata: All I'm saying is that you should join my vegetable watch-group.
Caro: Oh, will you give up on that! No one else cares if there are vegetables in food or not.



Carey: Yeah, you are never going to convince people to give up veggies as long as most junk food uses it. You might get them to swear of the raw veggies, but never the salsa.
Beata: You think I need to rework my strategy?
Carey: Definitively, I could give you some pointers if you want me to.
Beata: Oh yes! I mean, sure, that'd be cool.



Beata: I just can't help it, I just think your brother is so cute!
Meckenzie: Ha ha, you like Carey. Oh, Carey....
Beata: Stop it!



Beata:...and that's why I'm going to become a stylist when I turn Ya.
Carey: Ookay, good luck with that then.
Beata: So, what do you want to do?
Carey: I'm thinking of becoming a scientist, gotta do something with this genius trait.



It was great spending time at their house, I got to feel like a proper teenager, and not like someone with the entire history of their family on her shoulders.


Meanwhile, back at the house, grandma C's music was the last thing one of mom's military buddies heard before Grim came for him (Which one of them it was? Who knows, that hair works great at camouflaging their identies, since you spend so much time looking at the hair that you forget noticing anything else).


Grim: You have come a long way now Klara.
Klara: We have, but we are still two immortals short, and this file is getting buggy. What are the odds we'll manage to get to the end?
Grim: What end are you referring to?
Klara: The one that ends in victory of course.
Grim: Your guess is as good as mine.



Klara: Well, since you're not here to chat. Why are you hanging around?
Grim: Maybe I like spending time on this side.
Klara: And maybe you don't have anyone on the other side who'll humor you with a pillow-fight?
Grim: Busted again!

Chapter 192: It's called denial
« Reply #583 on: November 12, 2012, 08:26:03 AM »
Mom was a good sport about her birthday.

I heard grandma K tell grandma S mom had gone to her happy place. I later figured out what that place is, it's called denial.



Greta: Go me, it's my birthday. Today I'll be an adult!


Beata: Ehr, mom. I think you mean today you'll become an elder?
Greta: What? No! Is it true?



Greta: Ew, this will never do!


Greta: Quick, grandma C, distract them while I change.


Greta: What? I can't keep my old hairstyle? That's atrocious! Mature (for some reason mom refuses to refer to herself as elderly or old, wonder why?) women need sizzle too! I guess this sleek modern style will have to do for now. Beata, you really need to go into politics and combat this ageist attitude!


Greta: At least I've still got it when it comes to my wardrobe. Glamour all around.


I think grandma J was the happiest about mom turning elder, she danced on the counter all night long.


Dad dressed up as a pirate for their "private" celebration. Wonder if there was any truth to that story she used to tell me when I was younger? Wait! I do not want to know...

I know right! I almost choked on my tea when I found out his name. And he has the same hair style too, is that cosmic of what?

I'm of two minds about it ending. On one hand I can't wait, want to have completed it, and the file is slow and annoying now. On the other hand this is the longest generational game I've ever played (I've always lost the energy and interest around gen 3 before) and I've invested so much time and thought into these ladies characters and personalities, I'll miss them when I'm through.

I know the feeling. This is the longest I've played a family in my history of Sims. LOL I am going to miss all these guys, but at least I've got them in my bin and studio..

Chapter 193: Ambrosia party
« Reply #587 on: November 12, 2012, 09:21:03 AM »
As soon as I had come to grips with the fact that I really had become an elder, I decided to get my museum done a.s.a.p.


Even as an elder I still look fabulous, if I say so myself.


Greta: Thank you so much for coming to my ambrosia party!
Neal: No problem. What's an ambrosia party exactly?
Greta: Oh, it's just a rite of passage, an old family tradition going back several generations.
Neal: Wow, being an NPC myself I've always wanted to observe some of your townie traditions.
Greta: Townies? Oh, yeah, regular, average townies, that's us.



Cary: Happy ambrosia day honey.
Greta: There's no such thing as ambrosia day, silly!
Cary: Now, now, just go eat it.



Maid: You know you'll be old forever if you eat that, right?


Greta: What!
Maid: Ha, I got you good!
Greta: Shouldn't you be working?
Maid: Lunch break.
Greta: I'll break your arm, if you don't leave now.
Maid: Touchy much?
Greta: Leave!



Is it really true? Will I be old forever? The sparkles are coming...I feel, I feel...just as old. Bummer!


Cary: Hey babe!
Greta: Quick, tell me I'm beautiful!
Cary: Honey, you look radiant. Are you OK?
Greta. Much better.

Hah, In the background of a picture a few chapters back when Beata went to her friends house. I saw her sister who looks suspiciously like Candi who stalked Julia in school.

I think I should probably mention that Mackenzie have to siblings, one is her sister Caro, I've told you about her before.

I thought so too, such a shame, she's a lot nicer than Candi. Maybe she should be one of Beata's first makeovers...looking like Candi - she really deserves one.

I know, right? The name itself was good enough, the hair just icing on the cake.

Greta became an immortal on w48d5. I could probably have done it faster - if I hadn't waited so long for Klara to get married/pregnant and if Greta had had Beata as soon as she aged up. But I think I'm doing pretty well.

Thanks for all the support guys! I can't believe I only have Beata to whip into shape now, she's still got a few teen days to go, and then it's time to work on those requirements.

I guess Klara had more issues about childbirth than I expected.

Does this ever happen to any other writers? That, the characters go places you had no intention of taking them I mean?

 It happens.
