It’s Time to Play...Immortal Love Connection!

Let’s take a closer look at the two prospects for EeyoreWrite. First up is Indiana Jones, I mean, Blake Cho. Blake’s big selling point? He’s Family-Oriented as you can deduce from the conversation below. That’s great because EeyoreWrite is Family-Oriented too...



EeyoreWrite: “Do you understand the meaning of the word family?”
Blake: “Yes.”
EeyoreWrite: “Me too! Do you actually come from a family or are you the product of something else?”
Blake: “No, I definitely come from a family.”
EeyoreWrite: “Me too! Two plus signs! Would you like to be part of raising a family?”
Blake: “Ummm...now hold on...I’m —”
EeyoreWrite: “Next candidate please!”


EW invites Derik McCauley over and the two Teens hit it off really well. “Talk About Art” yields two plus signs, so Derik clearly has the Artistic trait. Score!



EeyoreWrite: “Have you ever heard the term art?”
Derik: “Yes.”
EeyoreWrite: “Super! Next question — would I use a paintbrush to paint with or to change a flat tire?”
Derik: “My Artistic trait is telling me that one paints with a paintbrush.”
EeyoreWrite: “YES! Would you like to be part of raising a family?”
Derik: “Like I said...you paint with a paintbrush.”


EeyoreWrite continues to move up the writing career ladder by pumping out Childrens’ Books at a very fast rate. The following two screenshots are a subtle example of what separates Sims 3 from games such as...I don’t know...Pong or maybe Space Invaders. I’m talking about EA’s serious attention to detail here. Look closely below and you’ll see animation differences between career levels. For example, in the photo below you’ve got eyes down, hands on the keyboard. That’s typical of a level 8 writer and in my opinion, it just does not exude much confidence...



“Blah, blah...this book stinks. I don’t want anyone to buy this drivel. I feel awful. I’m ready to go jump in a lake.”

Whoa. Now, we examine EW below only five minutes later. So, what happened? What happened is she finished up “My Next Childrens’ Book.” So, EeyoreWrite is now a level 9 writer. Now, we’re talking! This is confidence. One hand is up in the air almost like she’s issuing a command or cracking a whip. “Take that, you Childrens’ Book...content..or something.” I’ll tell you what — I want to buy this book. A level 8 book? Not so much.



“I’m now free of my dark depression. This books kicks butt, baby! Look out children, you’re are absolutely going to love this one!”

A few days later the clock ran out for Chanda. EeyoreWrite was finishing up another book and she ran into the TV room to see her mother floating about. Oh, no! Her mom was gone. Sound is heartbroken at losing his wife. Everyone is crushed at losing the prettiest TV watcher in Man history.



Recipe is quite concerned. What is our Founder to do? So many deaths over all of these weeks. So many immortals’ spouses have come and gone. So much heartache and sorrow...



Recipe is fed up and makes a bold move...




“It’s time to play Immortal Love Connection! Folks, behind me are our three possible candidates for the father of Man Dynasty generation #8. It’s a big job. Who’s Man enough to step up for the team? First up is the Masterful Floor Hygienator.”
Crazy: “YEAAAAAAAHHHH!”
Recipe: “Ssshhh. Quiet. This little guy has a couple things going for him. First, you can change his scent. Second—he’ll never give EeyoreWrite any problems with backtalk. But, he lacks the proper plumbing to actually get EeyoreWrite pregnant, so that’s a big strike against him.”

“Next up on your left in the blue shirt we have Derik McCauley. We’ve learned Derik is Artistic, Rich, and a Pieces. On your right with the hat is our last candidate, Blake Cho. So far, we’ve discovered that Blake is Family-Oriented and Frugal. He’s also a Pieces, and our crack team of investigators unveiled new information — he’s a babysitter. Ugh! Folks, you know what that means? It could mean odd aging up issues since he was/is an NPC. I don’t like that at all. And I don’t like the hat. Ahem...but, it’s not MY decision, right? So, let’s turn to our studio audience and see what they think...”



Sound: “Derik hits the note for me.”
Crazy: “Floor Hygienator! Floor Hygienator for the Win! PLEASE!”
Sporty: “Derik definitely should make the team.”
Queenie: “Adding Derik would be a great Business decision.”
Girly: “My prescription is to have EeyoreWrite take one Derik McCauley at nighttime followed up by 10 apples.”



“Well, Blake, my pardner...I’m sorry. The votes are in, but thanks for playing. Before leaving...stop by the studio office for a nice consolation prize.”



Recipe: “Congratulations you two. Derik, you can expect a call in a couple days for EeyoreWrite’s Young Adult birthday party. Since you’re rich make sure to bring over...you know...a rich kind of present.”

In the last picture Crazy did not seem best impressed that the floor Hygienator did not win.

Congrats Derik! Why didn't the floor hygienator win though? Just because it can't make EeyoreWrite pregnant? Aww poor thing!  ;D ;D R.I.P. Chanda!

Recipe may not be the brightest bulb in the room, but he's smart enough to know that if Crazy gets too Crazy about something (i.e. the Hygienator), then it's best to looks at other available options.

I'd be ticked too if the canidate that I yelled loud for didn't get picked. Poor Crazy.  :( It's okay I'm here for you, but not in a creepy-stalker sort of way.

Hahaha!!  Outstanding, Metro!  I don't even know what to say. 

Forest sends his regards and says to tell EeyoreWrite to be sure not to wait until 5 days from Elderhood to join the Journalism career.  ;D

Interesting way for the whole family to date EeyoreWrite's Baby Daddy!

I'd like to know what Blake's consolation prize was.

Waiting for Derik...

Just a few days after the Immortal Love Connection decision, EeyoreWrite was due to age up to Young Adult. Friendships are not something I have had her focus on. So, it was a good opportunity to invite over some of her closest Friends/Acquaintances to start working on that Ambrosia requirement with a solid birthday party.

It’s actually been quite a while since I’ve hosted a large gathering at Manly Estates. Seems most of the recent age ups have been immediate family only. I kicked off the party with dancing — one of my favorite party activities. What the heck is Derik doing in the background? This is the rich father-to-be of gen #8? “I found a penny! I found a penny!” And Recipe...oh, my gosh...he's taking the opportunity to mark his territory like a wolf. “Aaaahhhhooooooo.”



Almost there...Recipe is somewhere in Old Man’s land, Queenie is glaring at me which is a bit unnerving, but Crazy is really getting into the moment and tries with all his might to blow the sparklies off of EW with his noisemaker. Future daddy Derik McCauley is still in the background and lost his head in all of the excitement...
 


Like a fine wine, EeyoreWrite just keeps improving with age. Recipe finally realizes what’s going on and decides to join in...



Recipe: “The South surrender! The Civil War is over!”

Crazy just realizes he’s stepping in the spot where Recipe marked his territory. That, and the fact he’s still bummed on the Floor Hygienator losing the Love Connection contest. Derik is still a Teen, so while EeyoreWrite waits for him to age up, I hope to have her get close to maxing her writing career. And now that she’s a Young Adult, I’m hoping some writing opportunities will start firing for her because she does not have a single BlackOp at this point.

The Last Man is Just a Few Apples Away

I was not too crazy about the gray dress that EeyoreWrite aged up with when hitting Young Adult stage, so it didn’t take me long to send her to the bedroom for something a little more comfortable.



EW had to wait for what seemed like an eternity before Derik aged up to Young Adult. Every time I had her check her Relationship tab it still showed him in high school. Then, it finally changed. She was on the phone the very next morning and invited him over for some immortal making.



Uh-Oh. The Stroke Cheek! That one never fails..



Derik: “Your new shirt is quite sexy.”
EeyoreWrite: “Thanks. But, don’t judge my books by their covers.”
Derik: “What?”
EeyoreWrite: “Come here big boy.”


And with that EW glided into the bedroom like a graceful dancer. Derik proudly strode in right behind her to make Man Dynasty history.



Oh, my gosh! This reminds me of my own honeymoon! I’m kidding...I’m kidding! :)



After Recipe took his ear away from the door he greeted EeyoreWrite warmly when she and Derik were finished...




Recipe: “Well, any luck? Do you think you’re pregnant?”
EeyoreWrite: “I’m pretty sure of it.”


Yep, Man fans. There’s a bun in the oven — the very last Man. And he’ll make his appearance after just a few more apples...

Wow, all this Immortality and Craziness around the house has resulted in the last Man being able to count before he can talk! I'm impressed Metro.

Special Delivery for City Hall

With the Moodlet Manager always within arm’s length, EeyoreWrite worked around the clock and maxed her writing career by submitting “I’ve had my fill of you kids” to her publisher.



She worked and worked and worked throughout the majority of her pregnancy. But, something happened on the day she was to deliver. Call it nesting, call it mothering instinct, call it quantum physics, but EeyoreWrite had the strongest urge to get out of the house and go to...City Hall.




“Guys, it’s getting close to that time. Let’s all take a trip to City Hall. I just maxed the writing career and I want to pick up my Service Award.”



Recipe: “Are you sure now is the time to be going out, EeyoreWrite? Why don’t we at least wait until you do the the owwee-face and then we'll take you to the hospital.”
EeyoreWrite: “No, Recipe. It’s my decision as to what’s best for the child right now. I have to go to City Hall. There’s...some significance that I can’t quite put my finger on.”
Crazy: “I want to put my finger on a floor hygienator!”


So, everybody piled into a very unManly Big Lemon, and headed to City Hall...



EeyoreWrite: “Got directions, Recipe?”
Recipe: “Now, c’mon. I know how to get to City Hall for goodness sake.”
Sporty: “Turn off the windshield wipers!”
Girly: “You’re in reverse!”


Everybody arrived at City Hall and then went inside for a tour. Afterwards, EeyoreWrite picked up her Service Award for maxing the writing career.



Sporty: “Recipe, what is it that you’re trying to think about?”

Everyone was getting a bit restless, but EeyoreWrite was quite insistent. She had to be at City Hall. But, wait! Derik! EW grabbed her cell phone and quickly invited him to come to City Hall...



“Come down to City Hall now. I’m about to deliver the baby and want to tell you a joke.”

Derik showed up and he and EeyoreWrite knew the hour was fast approaching.



Derik: “The sun’s going down. It will be dark soon. It’s almost like waiting for Midnight. Almost.”
EeyoreWrite: “Oh, stop it. If we’re lucky our son will not inherit your sense of humor.”


A little while later, with Derik still standing right in front of her, EeyoreWrite got a writing opportunity called A History of One where the writer gets the chance to write a Biography for another Sim. In this case it was for Derik McCauley. Remember him?



Derik: “How’d you like the ringtone of a baby crying?”

When’s the last time you’ve seen Recipe running? For that matter when’s the last time you’ve seen Recipe run straight towards a pregnant woman? Lol. It’s a very dark screenshot, but it was too bizarre not to share. Recipe and EeyoreWrite were just talking to each other and EW’s Childish trait autonomously kicked in and they started playing Tag. Too funny.



EeyoreWrite tried to keep the mood light with her own feeble attempts at humor...



“Santa’s elves are working in the garden all day. They finish up and ask Santa...what else can we do? He says, Hoe, hoe, hoe.”
Derik: “Bwahahahaha.”


And FINALLY...EeyoreWrite goes into labor on the City Hall steps. She pushes, she heaves, she moans, and Sound Man performs a combination Michael Jackson/John Travolta dance move in the background...



Generation #8 was born — a happy, healthy baby boy with the Friendly (“Hi there”) and Excitable (OMG!) traits. Everyone piled back into the car to head back to Manly Estates to discuss naming the new addition...




Recipe: “Well, EeyoreWrite, I’m glad everything worked out smoothly. But, why City Hall? What was the significance there?”
EeyoreWrite: “I’m not sure, Recipe. But, I think this boy is going to grow up and change Sunset Valley. Make it a better place to live.”
Queenie: “Hear, hear! The vampires...the paparazzi, the incessant celebrity opp phone calls. Icky poo.”
Sporty: “So, he’ll go into politics and make this little metropolis of ours a better place?”
EeyoreWrite: “Yes, exactly. Metropolis Man.”
Sound Man: “Isn’t that a bit vain given who’s writing our story?
Girly: “Oh, listen to the Rock Star give a speech about vanity!”
Crazy: “I just want to call him a beautiful, little floor hygienator. Waahhhhhh!!!”
