9.94. Satoshi Soma (3/3): Momo Makes Her Move(s)

Week 9/Friday

Momo: It's a perfect morning for painting!
Elsa and Nikolaj are off to school and Clara Bjergsen has left for work.

The remaining adults are gainfully occupied yet available to rally the troops.


Yukio: I realize you're desperate to come in first, Momo, but I might have to report you!
Momo: Why for luring you in here to mentor me then locking the door?

Yukio: Well, that, too. But you've filled up all the empty easels so I have nothing to do but mentor you.
Momo: Precisely. But, hey, Great-Great-Grandpa Yukio, my win is the Soma victory!


Sofia: How sweet of Ali to phone me for a brunch date! <3
Sadly, I can't leave the house until Momo is done with her museum collection.

If only Watchette would arrange a nice space elsewhere where Momo could paint.
Well, I could invite him here, I guess.


Sofia: Should I wait until the kids come home from school?
That way, I could give Ali a makeover right away.

But then, it might be harder to find some privacy with Elsa and Nikolaj around.


Sofia: Hey, would you mind if I give you a makeover when the kids come home?
Ali: What? You don't like the way I dress?

Sofia: It's not that, sweetness. Your dashing good looks deserve something more.
Ali: Well, since you put it that way.


Sofia: Your kissing, on the other hand, leaves nothing to be desired!
Ali: Nothing, really? I can think of two or three things…


Erina: What is this odd premonition that's disrupted my deep meditation?


Ali: Nice room.
Sofia: It's not mine. Don't you know that a dynasty helper never gets the master bedroom?

Ali: So….woohoo until 3 o'clock?
Sofia: Oh dear, Ali! So handsome and a mind-reader as well?


Bjorn: Oh, look! Our watcher provides our living space with some privacy and does some landscaping, too!
I'm glad we'll have one-and-a-half days to enjoy the renovation! *drips sarcasm


Ali: What do you think, Sofia? And thanks for letting me keep the beard!

Sofia: You look even more handsome than before, Ali! Hawtness incarnate!
Ali: *blushes

Sofia: Too bad I couldn't change your gender, too, or you would totally be having my baby!
Ali: I would? I mean, I would love to…I think.


Sofia: Really, Ali? That's the swimwear you came with? A leopard-print speedo?
Ali: I didn't choose it myself, okay? And why do you want to see it? You don't even have a pool!!!

Sofia: Our watcher recently read a tip by @reggikko and wondered if you'd make a good test subject.


Sofia: He is a bit thick in the waist, isn't he?
Let's see what reggikko's Taste of Diet ice cream magic can do for us.


Ali: Well, ladies, what do you think?
Sofia: I think you look exactly the same! I guess you're just out of shape.
Ali: Hmmpph!

Bwahahahaha!
P.S. I have so much respect for reggikko and her brilliant Sims 4 gameplay! My bad for not picking a better sim for testing!



Satoshi: Never fear, Ali! Satoshi the Celebrity Bodybuilder is here!
Ali: I have the Ambitious trait. I can do this!

*gives cue to play the Rambo theme music


Momo: Why am I hearing the sound of trumpets coming from the backyard?

Yukio: Do you mind trying to stay focused, young lady? You just hit Level 9 Painting.
Or would you rather continue painting without being mentored, hmmm?

Saturday

Momo: It's so unfair, Grandpa Yukio! I'm the Soma heir but Sofia gets all the screen time!
Yukio: Hurry up and finish your museum collection already, Momo.
After your museum collection's done, you can flit around, fall in love, and move out!
Nobody wants to see shot after shot of you painting!

Momo: So, I generously tell Grandpa to go ahead and go home.
When I finally reach Level 10 Painting, it's already past 4 am. *sighs


Clara: Around 5, we get Elsa's birthday notification and call her home from the playground.

Elsa: Look how hard I worked to earn three extra traits!
Still, Watchette helps Nikolaj work on Rambunctious Scamp but never even lets me use the computer!

Bjorn: Don't talk that way, Elsa. Don't you feel bad for your nephew Nikolaj who has no father?
Elsa: Don't make me laugh! Sofia's baby daddy was here DAY AND NIGHT throughout Nikolaj's toddlerhood.
He gets way more attention than I ever do!

Bjorn: What's with all the complainers in this household!?


Bjorn: My word, Ali! You've really taking your self-improvement and fitness to heart!
And all because of your profound love for my daughter! I'm touched!

Ali: Yes, sir. It's partly that and partly my Ambitious trait.
But mostly, it's because Momo added Work Out as a club activity.
Sofia: *gives stamp of approval

Clara: Can you believe "someone" removed me from the club to add Ali?


Elsa: Yep, it's me! Elsa Bjergsen the teenager at your service! And way cuter than my sister Sofia, too!


Momo: I take a break from painting which I've been doing almost non-stop since yesterday morning.
I harvest the garden so I'll have some assets with me when I move out.

Yes, my week ends soon, but I'd like to spend the final week of this challenge in a nice home. I mean, of course, the Zanna's week.
Oh and I should make a cake to take with me, just in case!


Momo: Makoto Yamaguchi pays a visit. I learn that I met him and Ruki in the League of Adventurers club.

Since Makoto and I are good friends, I ask him if he'd like to age up and he says yes.
I need to return to painting so I ask Papa to give Makoto his makeover.

Oh my gosh, Makoto and his lopsided smirk! Too cute! Wait, how closely related are we?
He's the biological son of Ulrike Faust who adopted my grandma Jun, so we're not blood relatives. Phew!

Satoshi: You've got to be kidding me, Momo, after all we've been through! A vampire!? Sheesh!
Momo: Nikolaj is also a weaker contender for my heart, but Makoto has better "stats."


Momo: Hey, Makoto! I looked out the window and saw you're still here!
Makoto: Yeah, I was hoping you'd come out and chat with me. What are you doing?

Momo: Trying to finish my museum collection. I can only chat for, like, 5 minutes.


Momo: Well, okay, maybe I can hang out with you a little longer.
Makoto: Now that I got my first kiss, I'll let you get back to your painting.

Momo: Oh darn, he left before I could ask him to be my boyfriend!
And after I move out, we'll be in different age groups!


Momo: My last five hours of painting don't produce anything of higher value than I already have.
My total museum contribution comes to $37,559.
Compared to the Dinero museum total of $114,457, we Somas tally up to $114,895.


Momo: I choose to age up in our backyard so you can see the new pool!
Thanks, Watchette, for building the pool four hours before I move out!

Momo: I move out to the Fern Park lot next door and then ask Sofia, Nikolaj, and Ali over.
After I age up Nikolaj to a teen, all three of them agree to move in.


It's a good thing I wasn't able to ask Makoto to be my boyfriend earlier cuz Nikolaj is pretty cute, too!

We're living in the same house (downloaded from the Gallery) that my parents live in.
Watchette's already replaced the lanai with windowed walls for Nikolaj's protection.

And by the way, Sofia is now eating for two!

Momo and her whining should be annoying, but it just ends up being amusing  :=)  And Sofia deserves all that screen time.  She's lovely (despite the shade Elsa was throwing).
Erina noticing a disturbance in the Force when Ali and Sofia headed for the master bedroom/bed was hilarious!
Wow, Momo would have quite the choice on her hands between her handsome suitors.  Of course, does she really need to choose?  I mean, she's the mistress of mayhem and not required to bring in an heir. 
Sorry to see this winding down, but really enjoying the ride  :=)
No current active Dynasties, but starting a Power of 10 soon!!

Now, now, Taste of Diet can't work miracles! Seriously, it can't change the Sim's core body shape, only make them slimmer if they have some fat to lose. I also noticed last night that I had to travel with one Sim before I saw the effect.

@PeregrineTook
Momo is the only female of the three Gen5 heirs. I find her terribly cute. She resents having to shoulder the burden of making up for the various mistakes of her predecessors.
I've gotten so used to playing heirs with either the Top-Notch or Happy Toddler trait, though, I must confess that I'm actually the one who's whining how long it took Momo to reach Level 10 Mischief and, even, Level 2 Charisma.
In my Mori Legacy, Elsa aged up into an unattractive YA so I was quite surprised what an adorable teen she makes. Sofia is pregnant so cross your fingers she has a redheaded clone, lol.
And yes, Momo must choose! I might have made the decision for her already...

@reggikko
Haha, I was so eager to see how Taste of Diet works, but I couldn't decide for the life of me whether Ali was pudgy or just unfit.
Good to know that traveling is sometimes required as well!
Ali did benefit from two days of working out, though, so he thanks you! :D

Wow, Niko reminds me more of a certain nanny with that hairstyle...

Momo and Elsa are stunning!

And, @oshizu I thought you might want to know that Brennachan did nominate me  :) Makes me feel even doubly loved since Brennachan is such a Simlebrity/Simstar in the community!

Lol, Niko really does a lot like Nanny Daichi in that shot. And you're right, it's the Fabio hair. Here he is at three different ages:

Nikolaj (named after GoT's Jaime) is a real looker, I think. Here he is at three different ages:


Aha, Ali has a fan! I went back and forth over whether to post a shot of Ali after 1.5 days of weight lifting, treadmill jogging, and yoga.
But where there is a demand, I shall supply, lol. His waist didn't get any slimmer but he did develop the beginnings of a six-pack!


In Elsa's case, the lighter hair color and make up did wonders. Momo is a mischief-maker and was super fun to play.
I feel bad that Momo spent all of her two weeks stressing over her dynasty requirements, though, except for her 30 minutes with Makoto.

That's great to hear about Brennachan nominating your Murkland simself. I'm sure she noticed you/her in the Gallery and believed you deserved it. Maxis agreed!  ;D

Rival Cowfolks in Newcrest: 9.95. Almost in the Bag?
« Reply #381 on: November 07, 2017, 10:03:31 PM »
9.95. Ayato Zanna (1/4): Almost in the Bag?

Previously in Week 8:
   • Ruki (Gen5 heir) and Poppy start the week as Day 1 nooboos;
   • By the time Ruki is a toddler, all five adults in the household reach Level 5+ Parenting and can "Give second wind";
   • Ayato asks Bella to be just friends. Bella realizes that Mortimer might be her true love;
   • Ayato proposes to Kendall Roberts, who soon after gives birth to twins;
   • Bella discovers that she enjoys volunteer activities and takes Makoto Yamaguchi volunteering three times in a row;
   • Ruki celebrates his teen birthday Saturday morning of Week 8 and begins his Nerd Brain aspiration.


Week 9/Sunday

Ayato: You don't know how glad I am to find that my Deathflowers have finally bloomed!
They complete my garden requirement for six plants.  Tada!


Vitoria: Nice work, son! So your only remaining bloodline requirement is your career?
Ayato: That's right, Mama. But as you can see, I should earn my final promotion tomorrow.

Vitoria: Well, here, let me give you my vote, Ayato!
Ayato: Thank you! Let's hope it's the last one I'll ever need.


Ruki: After my vampiric training, I continue being mentored in Logic by Uncle Alfonso.
Due to his mentor trait, Alfonso will be mentoring me in Logic and Handiness.
But Uncle Makoto gives me vampiric training since he's been a Grand Master longer than everyone else in our house.

And I hope you noticed my la-di-dah little pinky action! Aren't I just oozing sophistication?


Ruki: Auntie Laura's been awesome and has already produced two fine portraits of me.
That's my normal form on your left and my dark form on your right.
Worth $13,093 combined, these are the portraits I'll be placing in the Zanna Museum.


Laura: Do you want to know why I've already stopped painting Ruki's portraits?
Let's do the math together folks, where:
$114,457 = Dineros' final museum worth (3rd place)
$114,895 = Somas' final museum worth
$101,120 = Zannas' last-week museum worth

$114,895 - $101,120 = $13,775 - $13,093 = $682

That is, Ruki only needs a museum collection worth $682 to move the Zannas to first place.
Frogs anyone?


Laura: Fortunately, our little Poppy is Independent and enjoys learning on her own.
Her birthday falls on Tuesday, so I'm grateful for this freedom to spend time with her!


Masato: Now that my son Makoto is a teenager, he's fully transformed into a vampire.

Makoto looks a lot like Ulrike, don't you think?
When Momo Soma aged him up, Makoto gained the Materialistic trait which is not bad.


Makoto: I have no idea why Auntie Bella is always whining about gardening!
It's not even 3 pm and I'm already Level 6. Plus, even as a teen, I can make serious coin just harvesting.

About last night, what was I thinking? Leaving Momo before she asked me to be her boyfriend?
I don't even remember now why I was in such a rush to leave!
Rumor has it that she's moved in some blonde boy toy! I need to go stake my claim!


Makoto: Since I'm in charge of Ruki's vampiric training, Ayato has been training my son Makoto.
It's been a great system so far!


Bella: You came to visit me, Massimo? Honestly?
Massimo: Bella, please. We may be just friends now, but I'm still your Master and you're still my Offspring.
As long as you remain a vampire, that aspect of our relationship will never change!

Bella (internally): I'm rather relieved he's "taken" or I'd waver in my decision to get back with Mortimer…


Ayato: I'm not too sure what's going on in our simverse anymore. Look who's at the door!

Erina: Hello, Ayato. I thought I'd drop by for a visit.
Ayato: Why are you even here? You don't know anyone in this house except me.

Erina: I guess I just wanted to see you.
Ayato: Until Alex Goth cured you, I'd been your Master but now we're just acquaintances.
Stop flirting with me and go home!

Alfonso: Later, she follows me into the bathroom and smiles, all creepy like, so I ask her to leave.


Ruki: The Gen5 Zanna heir here, reporting for my first day of work at…where do I work?
Well, yeah, I know I'm working in Fast Food but where?


Ruki: Hey, everybody, I'm done with work. ! Let's go to the park! I can go on my five space missions for Nerd Brain there!


Laura: It's so nice to leave my painting studio, but I'm doing a poor job of keeping Poppy happy.
She is constantly angry because of hunger, low energy, books, blocks, you name it.
I'd say Poppy is the unhappiest toddler in this whole challenge!

Alfonso: Maybe you should just leave her alone, Laura. Her stats don’t' matter anymore, anyway.
Laura: What a sad thing to say about our only child, Alfonso.


Monday

Bella: The boys have left for their first day of high school and Ayato is at work.
Since Poppy is asleep, I get on Ayato's computer downstairs.

My Writing skill isn't high enough to send Mortimer Love E-mails but I can receive the ones he sends me.
And, of course, we chat like nobody's business. Is he even at work now?


Alfonso: We've found a way to prevent our resident glutton from eating and vomiting.

Masato: Learning to mix drinks is such a bro thing to do!


Masato: Hey, Jung! I noticed you stomping by and ran out here as fast as I could. What's wrong?
Jung: Well, you know that Vitoria and I had a nooboo after Ayato moved out, right?
Our daughter has been a bassinet burrito now for weeks--it's driving me crazy!

Masato: Dude, relax. I'm sure our watcher will stop by and age her up next Sunday.
I hate to say this, Jung, but you look terrible! You've been lifting weights recently, amirite?
Jung: Yeah, so?

Masato: Look at yourself, bro. Where's my svelte debonair vampire bro?
Now you look like The Hulk and your neck is as thick as one of your thighs, and that's thick!
You should NOT be wearing those skin-tight jeans anymore!

Jung: Anything else, mom?
Masato: Yeah, stop going to the gym!

No more leaving a weight lifting machine in households I no longer play!


Ruki: We're back from our first day of high school.
I bring home a "B," thanks to The Well.

Makoto: I bring home a "A," thanks to my "A" in grade school, I guess.
However, I'm having a mood swing--an Angry +50 Enraged mood for 8 hours. I'm not okay!


Ruki: While Makoto drinks a moodlet solver, I head for the fridge.
My part-time job requires my currently non-existent Cooking skill to reach Level 2.


Ayato: I have climbed the lofty heights to the pinnacle of the Politican career and become The National Leader.
I'm done with all my bloodline requirements! Perhaps I'll quit my job and lead the life of a gentleman of leisure.

But I'm rather attached to this suit and tie, so maybe I'll keep my job, only working whenever Ruki needs to stay home.


Laura: Our little Poppy ages up to a child tonight a few hours past midnight.
I wonder if she'll continue to resemble Alfonso?
One thing's for sure. She'll always be a daddy's girl!


Ruki: Breaking news, gentle readers!
Auntie Laura has since painted a dark-form portrait of me worth $6,077.
What this means is that, even without my collection, our museum total already exceeds that of the Somas.

But now is not the time for us to rest complacent on our laurels.
We must remain ever vigilant so we don't disqualify ourselves in this final week.

Also, I do not intend for the Zannas to claim victory so easily on the basis of portraits. Not on your life!
We will emerge victorious with a tremendous margin. Or, at least, that's what I'm hoping!

Woot!  Go team Serena!
The la-di-dah pinky part just cracked me up (largely because my daughter teases me about doing that same thing).
Jung is the Incredible Bulk now!  Good heavens!  All manner of ill-proportioned rained down on him!
Another lovely update...especially since everything is going well for the Zannas :=)

Makoto might possibly be the most attractive sim yet. He has Ulrike's eyes and mouth, but, Masato's nose and strong jawline. *sigh Not to mention that he shares his Father's complexion and not the overly pink of his Mother.

Sorry, Ru, you're still hawt and all, but, my interest in you is now solely heir based...

I'd like to see some Makomo-boos!!! :-) I'm all about the ship, 'bout the ship...

@PeregrineTook
Now I'm trying to imagine you terrifying your tabletop RPG opponents by flaunting your little pinky, lol.
When I first noticed Jung walking by angrily, I didn't even recognize him at first.
As for the current Zanna household, they just need to heed the challenge rules and they're golden.

@Magpie2012
I share your sentiments about Ruki. My favorite sim currently is Ayato Zanna and I'd been sure that his son Ruki would replace him as my favorite.
Sometimes progeny don't get the best of their parents' features... Makoto totally scored in that respect.

Lol, Makomo-boos! Love that term...once this week ends for the Zannas, I'm thinking of doing post-challenge vignettes for a few of the sims. Definitely Makomo!

Rival Cowfolks in Newcrest: 9.96. Uncontrollable
« Reply #385 on: November 08, 2017, 11:34:15 PM »
9.96. Ayato Zanna (2/4): Uncontrollable

Tuesday

Laura: Not long after midnight, Poppy is ready to age up.
Alfonso: Great job helping Poppy max her traits, Laura!


Alfonso: Oh no! This is simply terrible!
Laura: What do you mean, darling? Poppy is a gorgeous little girl!

Alfonso: I know! I'll need to escort her to and from school every day to protect her from unscrupulous boys!
Laura: *rolls eyes

Ayato: Well, now that Poppy's aged up, it's time for an outing!


Ruki: Why am I not surprised that we end up at Kendall Roberts' home?

Ayato: Look, little Cade came out just to say hello to you, Ruki!
Ruki: Sure, he did!


Ayato: Enough with the attitude, Ruki! Thing is, you need to do five upgrades for Nerd Brain.
However, Masato and Alfonso have already insta-upgraded all the appliances at our place.

Ruki: I see! So I can complete my five-upgrade goal here instead of running all over town.
Ayato: Exactly!

Alonzo Brothers: You vampires are so odd, but thanks for adding Self-cleaning and Auto-Soap Dispenser to that sink!


Ayato: In addition, Poppy can play on the nearby space gym.

Poppy: I can finish my first milestone right here, right now!


Poppy: But why is it so dark out? And where are the other kids?
Alfonso: It's late because we were all waiting for you to age up, Poppy.

Laura: And Papa and I are here to play with you, darling.


Ayato: You know, of course, that we're actually here so I can befriend and age up my son, Julien.


Julien: So this is my father! What a relief to know that I won't look like Grandpa Alonzo!
My father smells so nice and he has a certain je ne sais quoi.

What? You think I shouldn't know any French?
Mother listened to language tapes while I was incubating!


Makoto: While Papa continues practicing bar flair on his beloved portable bar, I chill with Cade.
Since we're not family, I'm quite surprised I have to option to teach Cade to talk.

Well, Uncle Ayato was saying that this household was a bit bugged.
Spending time with Cade makes me think that having a kid or two of my own wouldn't be bad…


Alonzo Brothers (left): So, I've been asking around and these Zannas are insanely rich.
Aaliyah Brothers (right): Yeah, I heard the same thing while tending bar at Pan Europa the other night.

Alonzo: Maybe Ayato will buy that huge 64x64 lot in Countryside Windenberg for Kendall and their kids.
Aaliyah: When he builds us an in-law cottage and asks us to move in, let's initially pretend we don't want to be a burden.
Alonzo: Why would you want to move in with them, Aaliyah? You hate kids, remember?


Ayato: Julien and I are good friends at last, so I age him up.  He's the cutest of Kendall's children!
On your left are the green-eyed twins who don't resemble each other at all.
For comparison, there are shots of me (upper) and my son Ruki (below).


Ayato: Cade and Faith always look a little cross, but Julien is a real charmer!

It's a shame we won't be around to watch these three children grow up.


Ruki: Makoto and I get back from school at 3 pm, the same time Papa and Auntie Laura finish work.
I should have received an "A" today but come home feeling Enraged (+50 Angry) instead.

When I pop the whim to drink uncontrollably from Auntie Laura, Papa quickly sends me inside.


Ayato: But Ruki flies back out in bat form and starts mesmerizing Auntie Laura.
I have no options to stop him except to pick up the phone to travel to Grandpa Massimo's home.

While he drinks a moodlet solver there, I check his moodlets and discover I was too late.


Ruki: Arrrgggh, I feel horrid. Now I'm not only Enraged but also have the Guilty Drinker (+50 Tense) moodlet!
Ayato: You have no idea how deeply you've disappointed me today, Ruki.

Ruki: But, but, but I was Enraged and I couldn't control myself.
Ayato: Do you remember Makoto also came home Enraged yesterday? He didn't spin out of control like you!

If you don't watch yourself, Ruki, the Zannas will disown you at the end of this challenge.
Thanks to Auntie Laura's Deluxe Easels and her portraits of you, you don't need to lift a finger for your museum collection.
Now go home and get ready for work. You're poised for a career promotion tonight, but you'll probably mess that up, too.


Laura: I have to tell you what that scoundrel Ruki just did to me, Alfonso! *whispers
Alfonso: After all we've been done for him? What an ungrateful jerk! What do you want to do?

Laura: I have no beef with the rest of the family, so I'd like us to stay here until the end of this week.
But I believe it's time we leave east Newcrest. There's no reason for us to be living in Vampire Central.


Laura: Ruki will live forever, darling, but you and I will not.
No way I would ever leave our precious Poppy alone in the same house as that uncouth Ruki!

Alfonso: I've lost any desire to continue mentoring him for his last three Logic levels, but I'll do it for Ayato's sake.


Ruki: Now that I've calmed down, I'm so ashamed about what happened earlier today.
I can't even apologize to Auntie Laura and Uncle Alfonso. I feel so bad…

Will no one believe me when I say that I wasn't myself?

Just one little bit of good news: I maxed my Fast Food job and will surely get an "A" tomorrow.


Wednesday

Makoto: I stay home from school today and catch up to Ruki at Tier IV of the Nerd Brain aspiration.
Congrats on earning that "A" today, Ruki!

Ruki: How the heck did you catch up with me? I started last Saturday morning.
You started a whole day later than me on Sunday morning plus you have Level 6 Gardening!
Makoto: True, but I'm a Top-Notch Toddler with the Mentally Gifted trait.

Ruki: My Logic is Level 9 and yours is Level 7, but still…


Ayato: Now that Ruki's done with Nerd Brain, I'd like to talk with the two of you.
I want you to know that, after this week, I'll be moving away from Newcrest to start a new family with Kendall.

Since Ruki will be moving out, you are both welcome to this house, if you wish.
It's my gift to you, Masato, for all your support and friendship.

Masato: That's so generous of you, Ayato. I've really been wanting to live with my lady, Ulrike, and our daughter.
I'd love to invite them both to live here with me. You'll stay with us, too, right, Makoto?

Ayato: Doesn’t Makoto have his eye on a lavender-haired young lady who stole his first kiss?
Makoto: I do and she did, but then she aged up and I'm still a teen so I don't know what to do right now.

Ayato: Invite her over and ask her to be your BFF, dude! Rumor has it Sofia Bjergsen's teenage son also lives in Momo's household.
Masato: Seriously!? Momo aged up Sofia's love child into a teen!?

Ruki just decided to become my least favorite Zanna.  Yep.  He drank from my Laura.  Not okay, Ruki!
Also, Poppy is lovely!  I quite enjoyed Alfonso's response to how lovely she is.  She must be protected from those unscrupulous boys!  So funny (and true thoughts of a daddy of a lovely young girl).
I loved how effectively you justified the visit to Kendall's house, but then totally admitted you were really only there to age up baby Julien.  Good stuff!

@PeregrineTook

I was shocked when Ruki popped that whim, especially since Makoto rode through his Enraged phase no problem just the day before.
Seriously, Ruki has turned out all kinds of disappointing as the final Zanna heir! But once an Enraged teen pops the uncontrollable drinking whim, there's no way to stop it.

Toddler Julien is the best! And Ruki even completed 4 of his 5 upgrades for Nerd Brain. Eh, Ruki's museum collection isn't a big deal anymore, anyway.

For shame, Ruki! For shame!!! After all that Laura has done for you and your family! You owe at least part of your win to her!!

Wow, I can't believe we're so close to the end of this challenge. Can't wait to see what you come up with next (after the appropriate amount of time spent with Cats and Dogs of course lol)

Hi!  I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your stories on this forum, especially this one.  I came to the Sims 4 party rather late, so it seems like the majority of the things I read are at least a year or two old by now.  It's rare that I can actually comment on a story that is still in progress. 

Anyway, I love all three of your families and have found myself rooting for them all.  I'm so glad that you seem to be trying to give everyone a happy ending. 

I have a theory about who Sofia's baby daddy is...I think there was only one other adult male in Vitoria's household besides Jung and Masoto...but maybe for Sofia's sake I shouldn't mention it.   :-X

@Magpie2012
It was really shocking to watch Ruki mesmerize his Auntie Laura without my being able to intervene. By the time Ayato's travel screen appeared, I didn't actually see Ruki drinking but he had the moodlets that proved he did. Bad vamp!

What I want to do next is one of Playalot's new challenges, either the Runaway Teen (which would be more fun and easier, maybe) or Vet Clinic: Rags to Riches (which seems incredibly hard, so probably not, lol).
Just a for short break.
After that, I can decide between the Ten-Gen Townie Dynasty (I've never played the ISBI challenge) and the Life States challenge.
What appeals to me about the Life States challenge is that I can start with two favorite sims and watch the genetics play out. What scares me about it, though, is toddler training. Haha.

@BallerinaHippo
Thanks for reading this silly story and your nice words. This challenge has been rather grindy the way I've been playing it because, after each heir moves out, I've been moving out the next-generation heir in two weeks. I do have a half dozen sims that I really like though and that I'd love to feature in a new challenge.
And yes, I'll be trying to give most of the sims a happy ending, except Ruki Zanna, lol.
The fact that Sofia's son Nikolaj ended up with blond hair like his mother makes the guessing harder. :)   Haha, I know who you mean!

9.97. Ayato Zanna (3/4): The Last Museum Contribution

Thursday

Laura: Aren't you being a bit cavalier about the challenge these days?
Ayato: Oh c'mon, Laura! I thought you and Alfonso might enjoy a little clubbing!

Alfonso: I'm always glad to get out of that Focused Room, Laura.
And besides, the Zanna victory is pretty much in the bag!


Laura: One real advantage of being a vampire is the eternal life!
Check out Grandpa Caleb over there in his cosmetic frames and cowboy hat!

Alfonso: Yeah, unlike my brother-in-law Alex who probably dressed himself in the dark, Caleb looks so stylishly youthful!


Ayato: I don't know, folks, my Great-Grandpa Caleb seems to be suffering a mid-immortality identity crisis these days.
Yesterday, Watchette took me with her to Brindleton Bay to make her maps.

I ran into him working in a Seafood Sampler stall in Whiskerman's Wharf. Why?


Bartender: What's a gorgeous woman like you drinking alone at a club, lady?
Bella: It's a loooooooong story, believe me.

Bartender: Short version?
Bella: I fell for a guy who asks me to leave my husband. Turns out he's in love already with another man.
Then, after breaking up with me, he marries me off to his grandson who doesn't love me. We have a son.

Bartender: Whoa, that's tragic! Here's a triple shot for you. It's on me, cuz you need it!


Masato: Wouldn't you rather be inside dancing instead of here fishing with me, son?
Makoto: Not at all. By the way, I'm grateful I got to live with you as a teen, Dad.

Masato: You don't regret not staying with the Somas? You would have seen more of Momo!
Makoto: I doubt that Satoshi was thinking of moving me out with him. Momo and I will be together, you'll see!


Ruki: It's almost daylight already and I didn't catch a single angelfish!
So much for ending this challenge with the highest-value museum collection…
Yep, I'd been thinking ambrosia but it's out now, since I can't max Fishing.


Ruki: One mistake! One mistake beyond my control while I was experiencing a mood swing!
And now everyone's turned their back on me! Everyone!

I bet if I'd grown up looking like my father Ayato, Watchette would have forgiven me immediately! Grrrr.


Ruki: You know what else?
I'm sick and tired of constantly being unfavorably compared with that Makoto and his double-jointed pinky!


Ruki: And I've reached Level 10 of Homestyle Cooking!
In a show of belated compassion, Watchette buys me the highest-end fridge and stove.

Uncle Alfonso and Uncle Masato show up right away to give them insta-upgrades.
Time to get started on my museum collection!


Ruki: Until recently, I'd always assumed that Great-Great-Uncle Lio was a jerk.
Now I understand that when our rivals picked fights with him, he'd get Enraged.

That's why he was always drinking uncontrollably while or after becoming enemies with our rivals.
Well, I have to admit: his frequent break-ins at community lots weren't such a hot idea.


Friday

Ruki: Around 3:30 am, I've completed my collection and leave for the Zanna Museum with Papa.

Oops, I've forgotten to bring my portraits in my haste.
I phone Makoto and he brings them over to the Founder's lot in a flash.

To think that I'm the fifth and last Zanna to place my museum items in here!


Ruki: It's a little past 4 am when my museum area is finally done!
I must commend our Founder. She's the only founder who prepared display areas for all four of her heirs in advance!

My collection consists of seven platters of Roasted Tofu Chicken for a total $2,842.
Before you say that's lame, remember the values of Gen3 and Gen4 Dinero heirs' collections ($1,353 + $1,120, respectively).

Ayato: So here's the final museum values for all three bloodlines, Ruki:
$114,457 (Dinero) < $114,895 (Soma) < $117,939120 (Zanna)


Ayato: Well done, Ruki! It's only Friday morning and all you need now are two enemies!
If you can manage that without burning up in the sunlight then move out, we'll be home free!
Ruki: I want to get started making enemies right now, Papa!

Ayato: I understand exactly how you feel! I'm ready to finish this rivalry and move on, too!
But you need to wait until your rivals wake up. At least give them time to have breakfast, okay?

At least let your enemies have a good breakfast before you throw shade their way.  Noice!
Ruki, stop trying to justify your actions by referencing Lio.  Maybe you're just as bad as him and your Watcher's attention has been all that's saved you thus far.
I'm so glad there will be some future updates.  Can't get enough Serena and Laura Rival Cowfolks!

Congrats to the Zanna line for a great win! But mainly, SUPER DUPER CONGRATS TO THE SOMA FAMILY!! Ha, second place, such a great job, not bad for the underdogs of the challenge. I can't wait to see how things wrap up, this has been such an entertaining read from start to finish so congrats to you, oshizu, for finishing another dynasty. Might we see an Ayato/ Kendall kid in another story somewhere? Or perhaps Makoto and Momo will live happily ever after?

@PeregrineTook
Yep, we don't want our rivals having to argue on an empty stomach, right?
Haha, you're so observant about Ruki referencing Lio. He thinks bringing up Lio will somehow cast him in a more favorable light, comparatively.

@dontmindme
You said a few weeks back that the rivals would end very closely and you were right once again!
In retrospect, Satoshi fishing so late was a terrible idea! He should have just done what he could and passed the torch to Momo asap so she could make the real bucks with paintings.
If Momo had had the extra time for painting, who knows how the rivalry would have turned out? The Somas thank you for being such a loyal supporter!
Chief of Mischief sims are always so much fun to play and I really enjoyed Momo in general. She is definitely my favorite Soma heir!

Actually, this challenge isn't officially over until Ruki makes his two enemies and moves out, lol.

Rival Cowfolks in Newcrest: 9.98. An End to the Rivalry
« Reply #395 on: November 12, 2017, 05:14:59 AM »
9.98. Ayato Zanna (4/4): An End to the Rivalry

Week 9/Friday

Makoto: I'm within range to earn four out of the five additional traits based on my positive character values.
I wish I'd realized sooner that I could write in a journal to boost my Emotional Control.
Too late now, I guess.


Bella: I started writing novels yesterday and now I can write Love E-mails to Mortimer!
This morning, though, I'm writing excuse notes so Ruki and Makoto can stay home from school.


Alfonso: What are you two up to this morning? Having a mixology face-off?
Ayato: Hardly. We're just here, waiting until the simverse wakes up.

Alfonso: Huh? What do you mean?
Ayato: Once Ruki's target enemies are awake, Masato and I are going to mix Sunlight Reversal Cocktails for our sons.

Alfonso: I can understand Ruki's need for sunlight protection, but why Makoto?
Masato: He's been working hard so we thought he might enjoy his afternoon off outdoors.


Ayato: After Poppy leaves for school, we start mixing Sunlight Reversal Cocktails.
Too bad Mama already maxed this skill! I rather enjoy mixing drinks!

Masato: Once this challenge ends, Ayato, you can max any skill you want!
Boys, come drink down these cocktails so we can head out!


Ruki: My first target is Mint Dinero who I greet with a rude introduction.
I've brought along Papa, Uncle Masato, and Makoto for moral support.

Mint must be a little hotheaded, because our argument escalates rather quickly.


Ruki: I'm glad Papa came along. I've never been outdoors during the daytime like this!

Ayato: Man, Mint Dinero is living in such a plush crib! And waterfront property, too! Huh, moral support!?


Ruki: I used to consider Mint Dinero a very beautiful sim, but I learn today that she makes the most unpleasing faces!

Since she and I are both Music Lovers, I make sure to "argue about music" and "mock her musical taste"!


Ruki: Making an enemy is hard work! I wonder what my crew is doing? Praying for my success, no doubt!

Masato: An outdoor party area with a hookah lounge?! Dude, how is this even fair, Ayato?
Ayato: Eh, the vampire line has all the cool dudes! *shrugs


Ruki: Around 3 hours after I arrive, I can finally declare Mint my enemy!


Ruki: Look at her stomping her feet in fury. She's such a sore loser!

Next, I locate my crew hitting the hookah in their swimwear, sheesh!
Get dressed, folks, I'm ready to make another enemy!

Ayato: Hey, isn't that Sage Dinero's house across the street?


Makoto: By the time we get inside Satoshi Soma's home, Ruki and I are suffering from a double whammy!
Ruki: Yup, our Sunlight Reversal Cocktails wore off plus there's several garlic wards around the front door outside.


Ayato: And now you know why Masato and I both have portable bars! Makoto, come get another Sunlight Reversal Cocktail!
Ruki, Masato is mixing one for you right now!


Ruki: I can't believe you invited Momo Soma over when you know I'll be fighting her father!
Makoto: I've been wanting to see her and she lives right next door!

Ruki: What's the big rush?
Makoto: There's something I absolutely must do before you're ready to move out.


Makoto: Yes, Momo and I are best friends forever!

Momo (internally): Sofia's son Nikolaj is such a cutie-pie, but Makoto and I really click!
I wonder what his plans are after this challenge ends?


Satoshi: I felt kinda happy when Masato invited me to join his club!
But now I know you planned that to force me home from work early!

Ruki:  Oh puhleeze! I don't have all day to wait for you to get home, dude!


Ayato: I love this open-air lanai style! Our home feels so dark and gloomy in comparison!
Masato: You can only enjoy it now, bro, cuz you have full sunlight resistance!

Ayato: True, true! Anyway, I appreciate you coming here with me and hanging out while I wait on Ruki.

Makoto: No problem, my friend. I also want to make sure my son gets home safely!
I do believe this is the first day they've been outdoors in daylight as vampires.


Makoto (internally): Our romance bars have dwindled away, sadly. If only I were a young adult!

Momo (internally): What are his plans? Would he let me age him up? Are we just friends now?


Ruki: By the time I declare Satoshi Soma my enemy, it's almost 5 pm.
Not because it took longer. I waited around some before figuring out that Uncle Masato could invite him to the family club.

Makoto and I better head home before we lose our sunlight resistance again!
Ayato: Let's make one quick stop first!


Ayato: Hey, Nikolaj. I've been wanting to meet you!
Nikolaj: Good afternoon, Mr. Zanna. I'm honored that you'd stop by to see me.

Ayato: Well, you see, my son's moving out soon and I wonder if you'd consider rooming with him?
You two would have a nice big house all to yourselves.
Masato (internally): Also Makoto hopes to live here with Momo, so your presence would be a nuisance.

Nikolaj: Where is your son now, Mr. Zanna?
Makoto: I think I saw him heading upstairs.


Ruki: Here I am! Making a new enemy plunged me into an Enraged mood but this moodlet solver fixes that!


Nikolaj: You say you were upstairs? Did you meet my step-father, Ali Mandir?
Ruki: Why yes, I did, in fact.


Nikolaj: Mr. Zanna, I would live with you at the drop of a hat, but I'm gonna have to pass on your son.
Ayato: Well, that's a disappointment. Would you explain why?
Nikolaj: It's not obvious to you? Mother would kill me if I moved out to live with the vampire who drank from her husband!
Makoto: Way to burn your bridges, dude!

Masato: Am I just imagining things, Ayato, or do you and Nikolaj look rather alike?
Ayato: Well, look what time it is! We better fly off to the ole homestead.


Ayato: I know our union has never been a happy one, Bella, but I'd like to give you a parting gift before we go our separate ways.

Masato: Son, I'm really sad that you won't be living here with me and Ulrike but here's my send-off gift to you.

Bella and Makoto (in unison): What!? What!?


Ayato: Best wishes to you and yours in your new lives, Bella and Makoto!

Masato: Why are you photobombing Makoto's transformation shot, Ruki?
Ruki: Oh, I recently discovered that I'm in more screenshots when I stick close to Makoto.


Ruki: Happy birthday to me!

Laura (whispers): Psssst, Alfonso! Did you remove Ruki as a dependent like I did?
Alfonso (whispers): Hehe, beat you to it!

Ruki: First, Bella moves out. Next, Auntie Laura moves out with Uncle Alfonso and their daughter Poppy. Then, Makoto moves out.
Finally, leaving Papa and Uncle Masato behind, I move to the lot next door at Civic Cliffs.
I can't believe nobody wants to live with me!

This post contains the last five images of the preceding post, Chapter 9.98, which starts here. (Go on, click it, please!)

9.98. Ayato Zanna (4/4), Continued

Ruki moves into the middle lot of the five lots in eastern Newcrest.
Checking his relationship panel, he finds that the only other sim he can invite to move in at the moment is Nanny Imane El Fassi.

Apparently, Bella Goth, Laura Zanna/Alfonso Dinero/Poppy, and Makoto Yamaguchi have other plans that don't include Ruki.


Here's an overall view of Newcrest after Ruki's move:

Author's Note

Ruki moving out to the Civic Cliffs lot marks the official end of this Rival Dynasties Challenge.
As you already know, all three bloodlines occupy five lots each in Newcrest but the Zannas win due to their highest total museum worth.

The challenge is completed but my story will continue for at least two more updates, so please stop by this thread again later.
Thanks so much for following this silly story to its almost-conclusion. Be prepared for a little more silliness and maybe even some romantic closure.

Can't believe how quickly you got through this! 
That's right, Ruki, no one wants to live with the vamp who feasted on Laura!
The shots at the end of the bloodlines all together were so wonderfully set-up!  I rather enjoyed the consistency of the final heir standing in the background.  It just seemed right.  Of course, the only thing that would have improved those shots would have been replacing Ruki with Laura and Poppy  ;=)  Seriously, though, excellent work, a lovely update, and I look forward to the continued checking in on these wonderful families that you plan to do.  I'll definitely still be following!
