A Study of the States of Life, **Completed 6/19/13**
« on: September 17, 2012, 07:01:59 PM »
Here we go.  As usual, I won't even attempt to write, simply because I don't write creatively.  Give me a good technical report and I am all there.

hmmm...



Complete
Generation 1 - Human: Ander
Generation 2 - Fairy: Ginette
Generation 3 - Genie: Lucas
Generation 4 - Werewolf: Lera
Generation 5 - Witch: Blake

A Study of the States of Life
a Zabala Dynasty

Abstract
Is it possible to obtain seven different life states in a single family?  This study will document the attempt to do so over seven generations, while also achieving set goals for each generation.

Each heir will need to complete seven different goals prior to begetting the next generation.  Each new generation must be of a different life state than the previous generations.

If successful, at the end of the study, the family will consist of seven members, each of varying life states.  The household will have also assembled a collection of seven each of seven different groups of objects.  Each of the objects must be the result of a particular skill and be produced by only the heir.

Introduction
This study will begin with a single human male.  The subject was chosen at random and installed on an empty lot located at 126 Wood Street in Moonlight Falls.  The location of Moonlight Falls was chosen out of a limited selection of communities based upon the incidence of various life states already in residence.

Ander Zabala is the human male subject chosen for this study.  He is described as having the following traits: Great Kisser, Born Salesman, Brooding, Proper, and Loves the Outdoors.  His stated lifetime wish is to be Living in the Lap of Luxury.  He defines that as being worth more than $100,000.

Thanks.  It was a spur of the moment decision.  I am currently taking five six college classes - all of which are writing intensive - so technical writing is on my mind. (Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Management, Business, and Technical Writing - none of which encourage writing creatively).

He did turn out pretty good for a random clicky so I was surprised. I changed his daily clothes; however, all others are as he chose them.  I don't normally start with males but I have the life states planned out and I have a particular sim in mind for his spouse so male he had to be.

Details, Week 1

After moving into his new home, Ander scoped out the town and headed over to meet the local single fairy, Marigold Maldano.  He was single-minded in his pursuit, even though she seemed just a little unstable.  Eventually, he was able to invite her over to check out his place.  While there he finally convinced her to move in.  She wasn't interested in getting married just quite yet.  Ander was content with her moving in, for now.

Marigold wasn't home long before she headed off to China.  She picked up quite a few books along with some relics and other collectibles.  When she came home, they were able to build the house, although it is still mostly unfurnished.  Marigold spent her time planting and harvesting, and eating the fruits and vegetables in her backpack, even though she was not hungry.  She went back to China for some more collectibles and picked up a treasure chest while she was there.  She plans on keeping her spare fruits and vegetables in there until she is satisfied with her garden quality.

With a little extra money in the coffers, Ander takes a painting class while Marigold takes a gardening class.  They both register for self-employment and spend time progressing their skills.  After returning from her first China trip, Marigold was receptive to getting engaged.  After what seemed like an eternity, Ander was finally wishing to get married.  Marigold was in a good mood and agreed so, not wasting any time, they were married in the kitchen before bedtime.

Ander and Marigold purchase a Bonehilda to help around the house.  So far she makes the bed and cleans the kitchen and bathroom and then heads back to her coffin to sleep until another mess is made.




Marigold Maldano, Fairy Female
Founder's Spouse

Marigold turns out to be insane and unlucky, flirty but frugal, and a fan of the supernatural.  She is working towards what she considers a perfect garden, a collection of at least eight perfect plants.

I love the way you are writing your story differently to others. This kind of writing is just up my alley and so I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Details, Week 2 - 3

Ander and Marigold have a busy couple of weeks as they work on their individual assignments.  They adopt Belle, a female adult dog.  She spends several days hunting for gems, finding success with tiberium.  Marigold uses the gem machine and ends up with a spire cut stone and three piles of gem dust.   


After selling the tiberium at the consignment store, Ander completes all three of the consignment challenges. 


He continues to diligently work on his painting while Marigold works on her garden.  Belle gets lonelier and lonelier so they adopt Bridgette.  This isn't a good decision though, so they put both dogs up for adoption.


Part of the problem with the dogs needs turned out to be Bonehilda.  She would ignore the rest of the house and stalk the dogs to "teach them skills".


Marigold makes a total of three trips to China picking up relics for cash.  This sets up the couple for some real estate purchases, although they still have not finished furnishing the house.  They now have full ownership in the Gypsy Wagon, Sam's Market Diner, Vault of Antiquity, and the bookstore/spa.  Additionally they have a partnership in the film studio.  Finally, they own several venues: Varg's Tavern at level 3, La Shove Beach at level 2, and the dog park at level 0.  Ander celebrates his birthday with the completion of all of his requirements with the exception of the final collection of paintings.


Ander completes his last paintings and after posing for a picture for the files, he is off to make some babies.

Good job, Ander! This is going well! I thought gems and metals couldn't be consigned though?

They can be consigned in the new elixir consignment store that came with Supernatural but not through the regular consignment store.

Thanks, I am getting some play time in as I am ahead on my class work and we haven't started back up on our remodel.  I hope to get a good chunk of the fairy generation started today.

Okay, thanks! I didn't know that.  :)
