What happens when two of my favorite Sims meet for the first time? Gosh, I was nervous! Everything depends on Apollo who is the NPC in this situation.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Miraj seems to be feeling rather tense which is understandable. Apollo could be in a good mood, or his hot-headedness could erupt in Miraj's face without warning.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Hahaha! Well, even if that is how they feel there is still a considerable risk of things going sour quickly. *Plucks out a single strand of hair*

March 6, 2019 (Part 2)

Sometimes, Sims start to write their own story by doing their own thing. This is one of my favorite features.

I was playing Miraj last night who was still an investigator at the time. Had him meet and get acquainted with half the town by asking about career, spouse, and sign. As an investigator, knowing these things could come in handy...seen from a roleplaying perspective at least.

As some may have deduced from my previous posts, I find myself with a bit of a crush on the homeless werewolf townie, Larry Gandillon. He was performing for tips as a mime last night, and I had Miraj do the same with him as with anyone else as stated above. Only, he didn't get around to ask all questions before Larry's hot-headed and innapproriate personality blew up in Miraj's face.

Fine, I thought, and sent Miraj on his way to the next townie who was hanging around on the lot (grocer/diner). After getting acquainted with them, one Larry suddenly walked up to Miraj and smooched him as only the innapproriate Sims are able to. I simply let go of my keyboard and mouse and sat back, rolling my eyes and with a grin on my face. Okay, Larry, I thought. I had apparently misjudged the situation. Because to my surprise, Miraj accepted this very unexpected declaration of sudden romantic interest. I waited a bit to see if things would turn ugly again, but they didn't.

Well, since Larry's smooch had provided a major boost to their relationship and made them romantically interested, I decided to just play it that way. One thing lead to another, as they tend to do. Right? Right. And so, before long they were hitched and had a baby engineered in the future. I chose to let the hospital randomize the genetics, and the couple was given a son whom I have named Larmir (Larry-Miraj). He is a werewolf baby who, so far, seems to take most after Miraj appearance wise. He came with the traits friendly and brave which neither of his parents have.

Miraj had a wish to do the potty training specifically, while Larry had wishes to take care of teaching both walking and talking. I let them have their way and made Miraj paint for his new career.

Larmir in the demanding process of learning how to walk. While on a little vacation in Hidden Springs.

I gave Larry a new hairstyle and some new clothes (AKA a makeover), all from Supernatural.

Miraj: "Can I hold him now?"

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Larry: "Nope."

By the way, meet Miraj's goldfish - VJ. Thusly named in honor of his evil older brother back in Sunset Valley. But after I took out some of the expansion packs, Miraj could no longer eat him. For some reason, he could when he was freshly caught.

It's like looking at Miraj when he was a child, but not. Those eyes, both the shape and glow, are definitely Larry. I was wrong about Larmir's traits above - he has good, not friendly, which he has from Miraj. I randomized his third trait which became 'no sense of humor'. That must be from Miraj and VJ's dad, Iqbal. Wishful thinking perhaps, since the game probably doesn't account for relatives Miraj had back in Sunset Valley. But I like to think it's super intelligent and use that to explain away mere coincidences. It's good for storytelling.

While Larry was working out, Apollo came to the gym. He is a couch potato, so he never actually works out. Not physically, anyway. But good thing the place has computers for people like him!

Larmir: "Come on, guys, you're blocking my view..." (watching TV)
Miraj: "He just spent two days at the gym, I missed him."
Larry: ...Hngh.

Larmir: "Good evening, Sally Zeno. Come on in."
Sally: "Thanks."

Sally: "What is that noise?"

I wonder what she'll look like as a young adult. As a child she's pretty cute.

Larmir, the little predator up close.

I was lucky to spot the towns master vampire and top business figure before morning broke, and in his finest dress as well - Ayden Van Gould. I dig him, I just do. Absent-minded, humorless creature of the night and all, but very proper and a wee bit chubby to boot ;)

Belle and Briar Andrews all grown up. What to do with them now?

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
A completely mellow and saint-like Miraj, and quite the opposite Larry. Can their marriage last? Should it?

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Hmm, and what about this engineered son of theirs?

I'm very confused at the moment as to what to do with all my Sims...

The Andrews Family - March 10, 2019

It didn't feel right at all to have the Andrews live in Moonlight Falls, so they were returned to their place of origin, Sunset Valley, some days ago. I'm at peace again.

Bella and Briar have moved out and live together across from the Langerak and Bunch families. As closely knit siblings, it felt only natural to do it this way for now. From there, I can always change to their household and work on their lives as I see fit at a later date. Belle is working as a receptionist at the spa, while Briar is working at the grocer. Sweet Briar had to visit mom and dad already the same afternoon, he changed his address. To watch television until it was time to go to work. Cute, if a bit infantile.

Beau has become the proud owner of Hogan's Deep-fried Diner, and also works there now. It is his first real job ever in my game, but he is an accomplished cook and will rise through the dishes in no time. I promise. The diner seemed to be much more on his level, than the elegant Corsican bistro. Which is all good. Victoria and I love him just the same. He also cultivates a small garden at home. Really small, as it currently only consists of a single life plant.

Victoria has completed the Egyptian gold figurines collection and is only missing one from the dangerous creatures collection. She has also discovered all of the ornate canopic jars. She is still missing two tomb collection statues which means there are two tombs she hasn't explored yet. Her book-writing pursuits are also going very well. She has authored more than 20 books by now and just finished another best-seller before I wrote this update. All of the titles are inspired by Al Simhara and spand almost all genres.

Playing the Andrews family is very calming for me. Everything is very down-to-eath with them. Especially now that Victoria is not a fairy anymore. It is nice to play with just her and Beau again.

The roads in Al Simhara are a little bumpy, but Mr. Lemon is very dependable.


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Victoria is tutoring adorable kid Miraj at the library and made friends with his father.


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Great, now I (we) miss having smaller children in the household...


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Stinky Miss Agnes plays no part in that, but she walked by the Andrews residence with a purposeful stride.


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Victoria and Beau went to the cemetary and found a kid in need of a proper home and loving parents.


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
I could find no other way to add Opal Suarley to the household besides using NRaas' Master Controller.


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Yes, sweetie - you are alive again. Beau makes delicious ambrosia, don't you think?


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Time to just do nice family things before going to school tomorrow. Such as watching TV with one's new dad.


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Victoria is back in her old job as a journalist, but has to work her way to the top again, starting at level 5.

Miraj Alvi's Family - March 12, 2019

Miraj and Larry, and their son Larmir, now live in Lucky Palms. In 'That 70's House' - love this name since I've watched the comedy television series by the almost the same name: That 70's Show. I recently purchased the gold edition which grants you a very nice casino. So, naturally, I have been wanting to spend time in this desert neighborhood. I also decided to get rid of Larry and Larmir's werewolfiness. Guess, I'm not such a big fan of the supernatural aspect anymore (in other words, I'm getting old).

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Larry has been entered into the military; here on his way to glamorously clean the latrines.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Larmir has been getting his athletics up to be ready for a career as an agent in law enforcement. He looks a little mean, but he is very good-natured.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
He has developed a sense of humor since leaving Moonlight Falls. I'm seriously considering getting him together with Belle Andrews.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Miraj is painting in order to succeed in the forensic branch of law enforcement. Also, he really wants another child.

Miscellaneous Update March 15, 2019

Writer's note: There is a smaller re-started version of the Bloom family in my Andrews save, while the bigger Bloom family remains in Moonlight Falls. Suffice it to say, I have my reasons. Also, Miraj and company live in SV as well for the time being. I like to fool around with my Sims, that is the main reason for every crazy change ;D

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Victoria: Diamonds are a girl's best friends.
Beau: And mine.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Child parallel versions of Aleister and Oliver Bloom in SV. Oliver turned out cuter than he was in MF.

Dirty Larry looking fondly at teenage Sally Zeno (former newspaper delivery girl in MF)

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
My special girls, Victoria and Kassie (NPC here), hanging out at Central Park.

It looks like my plans for Belle and Larmir can work for the Sims involved. That's always nice.

I tell you, there was a lot of love in front of the spa that day. In the background, the Bachelor parents with a reading Michael in between.

Victoria learned that Apollo is a fellow bookworm. This is good, as talking about a common interest might alleviate some of the damage to their friendship his hot-headedness will surely cause sooner or later.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
She and Beau got around to getting a photo taken. It is placed above their fireplace. There is more room, so I'm planning to place a photo from each season. Isn't the romantic?

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
No, Victoria. Stop thinking. *Suppresses her thought bubble*
Opal Suarley, the now grown up resurrected girl from the cemetary, had just been inside the ghost manor. One can only speculate if she enjoyed being a ghost again (I moved her out).

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Looking further around the festival grounds, I saw that Iqbal was elated to have won a pie eating contest. Good for him. He is Miraj and VJ's father.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Belle and Briar Andrews have moved back home. I missed them. They had fun too at the park.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
They had their own photo taken. My sweeties...they are my kids, too!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Briar brought home some pumpkins for carving. Naturally, I forgot to take pictures of the finished ones. Dummy me.

Sultan Sam is always busy doing something around the house. Lately, I found him working his gnome magic on Beau's life plant.

So, what's a darn Bridgeport taxi doing in Shang Simla?? They all have dark windows because no one is driving them. They are just big city FX (effects). Grr.

I may not run the game on the highest graphical settings, but China is still pretty in my opinion. Victoria got a quest where she must go to France. Just our luck to pick that up almost as soon as we arrived.

Bloom News

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
This is Evie Dalton. Best (live in) friend of the little Bloom family in Sunset Valley. She works at Victoria's Books, and I gave her that work outfit she is wearing.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
This is Evie Dalton on fire. When I changed to the Bloom household, I didn't notice she was cooking and had her send a visiting old creep away. Then BEEP-BEEP-BEEP!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Evie is a little clumsy though. Instead of putting the fire out, she caught on fire herself. Luckily, Kassie and the firefighter were able to put out all the nasty flames, before a tragedy occurred.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Kassie to firefighter(tress), 'My goodness, that was close. Thanks, we are alright now.'
Evie whining, 'My pretty clothes!'

So I'm fairly new to the forum but I just wanted to say I'm so glad to see people still playing sims 3.
The Andrews family is one I severely neglect (I like Victoria but not so much Beau) but you've made me want to play them and Opal Suarley looks like she was made for them!
I also love Apollo and used him in my legacy family. He has good genes and I love seeing his kids! Also the newspaper girl grew up cute!

 

anything
