Sciks: Week 34 - Pets comes to the Sunbursts!

Mom still isn't feeling well, so I guess you have to put up with me again.

So many super awesome things happen to me this week! First, Dad teaches me how to drive a car and I get my license in 2 just days! This is me learning to drive in Grandma Fhore's Ford.



Then, the next day after school, Dad finishes teaching me to drive and I am so excited, I run home! Yup, I leave Dad with the car and run home. Hey, at least I didn't make my 80-something day old Dad walk home.



I invite the girl who has stolen my heart over after school on Tuesday and ask her a couple important questions.



Caroline Littlejohn says yes to being my girlfriend and to going to the prom with me tomorrow night! I'm the luckiest guy around!

The gnooboos have started their own gatherings, with Gnome number "something in German" (we've all lost track by now I think) keeping tabs on the youngsters.



Wednesday comes and I'm so nervous about Prom tonight I just can't stay in one place for long! I dig through a scrap pile at the Junkyard until I smell worse than week-old garbage.



Home again, after a shower, I mess around with Mom's laptop (it used to belong to Great Uncle Franklin) and set a booby trap on it. I hope I'm around when Mom turns the laptop on next! Lola nods her approval.



Then, after posing for another sculpture for Grandpa Tu, I ask Mom to help me with my homework. It goes so much faster when she's helping me, it must be her Genius and Logic skill!



Finally, it's time to head to the school for Prom! I rented a white limo for tonight hoping to impress Caroline. Can you tell I'm nervous? Because I feel nervous. Do I look nervous? Do you think she will notice I'm nervous? Ah man, I'm starting to sweat! Do I have time to run back inside and change my shirt? GULP!



Lola materializes out of nowhere and jaunts into Prom right behind me. So that's what she would look like if I gave her Mom's magic IF potion.



Maybe I should consider ... Oh my gosh! The most gorgeous girl just walked into the school! Oh, and now I'm nervous again. With my girlfriend Caroline at my side, I am invincible tonight!



I managed to get everyone to vote for me for Prom King! We were the dynamic dual of the dance and voted the cutest couple! I must say, I definitely agree.

[Anyone notice the weirdness in the Prom photo? Sciks' girlfriend is taller than him! She aged up into a YA the night before but still attended Prom with Sciks. How cool is that?!]

Thursday's highlights include of Mom choking down her very first Ambrosia meal! I guess that means I'll be doing all the updates for the foreseeable future. Congratulations Mom!



Also, our small town of Twinbrook finally gets it's shipment of wildlife, pets, and small creatures! In the morning, Grandma Fhore greets the first stray dog to venture onto the Sunburst home property.



Dad decides he's not to old to learn a new skill and heads down to the Equestrian Center for a riding lesson.



Grandma Therie paints a Genius painting that might just take a Genius to figure out! [Note to self: never paint a Genius style painting of a Gnome memorial statue again!]



Friday, Grandma Fhore finds a turtle out in the swamps and brings it home. It now lives in a terrarium in her room.



Mom stops by the Ice Cream truck for a delicious snack - YAY for the Freezer Bunny!



Saturday brings the day I've been looking forward to since Prom! Please meet Sami.



I adopted her from our neighbours and am now wrapped completely around her little paw. You may be wondering, but what about Caroline? Well, she's a YA now so it's improper for us to go on dates and stuff, so until my YA birthday next week, Sami is the girl of my heart.



Grandpa Wunn finds a bird, an African Grey Parrot to be precise, and spends all day Saturday teaching it to sing and talk.



We also spot our very first wild deer, raccoon, and horses! Dad is of the mind to befriend a wild horse but so far no go.



Next Week: A round of birthdays again, maybe a visit from Grim? (Dad is 90 days old now.)

Sciks: Week 35

This week is a week of interesting developments in the Sunburst household. Mom has been spending all her free time after work hours tunnel diving alongside Grandpa Wunn, if I didn't know better I'd think she was trying to avoid Dad, or something. This Sunday, during one of her many, many tunnel adventures, Mom finally brings back a cave-woman outfit, to the great envy of Grandpa Wunn. She has it recoloured in her favorite colour: Hot Pink.



Things must be looking up between Mom and Dad after the whole Jeb thing, I happen to see her actually accepting a bouquet of pink flowers from Dad. Or maybe it's because Dad's appointment with Grim came and went on Saturday, with Grim as a no-show. I just hope they figure something out before Mom has to live the remaining 3 generations with regrets.



Little Sami enjoys the freedom of a day forgotten outside after a trip out to the bathroom and decides to take the opportunity to meet the neighbourhood wildlife. She has a blast goofing around with this raccoon for the afternoon.



Monday after my second last day of high school I have an award ceremony for my Shop Class. Both Mom and Dad come to see me win a framed hand saw. It is awesome! I also get a trophy.



Check out all the cool stuff I've won, collected, and made! I get Mom to let me re-do my room to a more mature look (I took off most of the mushroom wallpaper), and to make my cool stuff stand out more. On the top shelf is my Ballet trophy and souvenir from the class field trip to the Science Center during elementary school. On the middle shelf is my prom picture and Prom King crown, and my new Shop Class trophy. Also, there is some medal hanging on the wall that I've forgotten where it's from. On the bottom shelf is the first Inventor Gnome I made, I have 4 or 5 of them now. Needless to say, he doesn't stay up on his shelf long after this picture is taken. And you can see my super cool framed hand saw on the wall above my bed!



So because it's my last night as a teen, I decide to sneak over to the school after dark and let all the frogs out of the biology lab room! I don't even get caught. The next day at school is a riot with 50,000 frogs hopping all over the place!



Mom gets the honour of finding and meeting our very first unicorn. This is Jumper and he is friendly enough that Mom is able to pet his neck and feed him an apple without losing a single finger. Impressive Mom!



I'm all innocence after a successful frog release at the school hanging out with Dad watching TV in our good suits. Some people tell me I'm totally like my Mom but I think I take after Dad quite a bit.



Tuesday brings about my YA birthday! I'm so excited to finally be the same age as Caroline again! I throw a huge party at Grandma Therie's Central Park - I invited mostly my friends but also a few extended family members). Apparently, we used to have our family parties here before Mom bought the pool, but I don't really want a pool party. After a bit of dancing and catching up with friends that graduated before me, I'm ready to blow out my candles.



And like every birthday before, the sparkles create the diversion in which the transformation takes place. Can you see her? Even Caroline made it to my party!



Back at home, Lola has her birthday too, all by herself. Well, Sami is in the house somewhere too, probably busy chewing on something.



This is the new, grown up me after a trip into Grandpa Wunn's closet for a round at the dresser and mirror.



The next day, Grandma Therie gets caught by one of my booby traps I set around the house during my last weekend as a teen. What?! I had to have some crazy fun while I still could! I think there are still a couple traps that haven't been discovered yet but I'm not really sure where they are *looks around innocently*.



My little Sami enjoys a good roll around in the puddle created by the sink booby trap before Grandma Therie makes me mop it up. It was so worth it!



Near the end of the week, Sami has her birthday too and grows into a monster of an adult dog! Don't believe me, well these next 2 pictures where taken with the same zoom. I don't know what's all in the puppy chow we've been feeding her but boy does it make a puppy fill out!





See?! Super puppy food!

Now that she's all grown up, I get down to business teaching Sami the tricks of dogs. We start with the basics: Sit!



By the time the weekend is up she also knows Sit Up and we've started on Shake. Oh yeah, I have been spending time at my inventing table too.

Oh, and Dad's still around. He's 98 days old on Saturday. Mom even lets him take her out for some bubble blowing, dinner, and dancing at the gym. Apparently, it's "their" spot.







I hear the night ended very well.



Next Week: Will we get to see the Grim? Maybe a wedding? You'll have to check back!

I finally got caught up with your story from where I left off!
Sami is soo cute..I am in love with all the puppies in the new expansion! Haha
I've found that most imaginary friends that I make into humans are absolutely gorgous, Lola is no exception!
Congrats Sciks for winning Prom King and finally growing up so he can go ahead and marry Caroline! :)

Sciks: Week 36, Part 1

Well, I've heard that the best way to break bad news is to do it first and fast, like pulling off a bandaid. Dad dies. At age 98 days, my Dad, Patrick (Baker) Sunburst finally has his meeting with the Grim. Dad spends all day Sunday working out while the rest of the family try and organize a trip to China which never happens. [Traveling, no matter who goes or how many resulted in zero Sims showing up in China. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.] At about 4pm he gets a call from City Hall, they have another stylist award for him! Dad is so excited he jumps off the weight machine and heads straight to City Hall. Sadly, he makes it only as far as the front porch.



The Grim makes it as painless as possible on all of us and simply shakes Dad's hand.



R.I.P. Patrick (Baker) Sunburst, 98days
Father, Husband, Friend, Musician, Photographer, Stylist
He leaves behind his Son, Wife, and their family.
He joins in the afterlife his Mother, Baker Uncle and Grandmother.

Mom takes it hard. I think she's struggling with Dad's betrayal and connecting it to the man that she loved her whole life, and continues to love. *Kleenex for Mom*



My one true regret: I never got to fulfill my Dad's 5000LTHP wish of seeing me get married. It's not like I didn't have time or anything, I am a YA for almost a week before Dad dies, I could have called Caroline on any one of those days and proposed but I didn't. I'm sorry Dad.

I start teaching Sami how to hunt and, after she gains her first skill point, there's no stopping her! Not one to sit still and listen to a lecture on hunting, she runs around the yard searching for the next super interesting smell to dig up.



You will never guess who I run into at the park on Tuesday! After a trip to the Consignment Shop to drop off my latest batch of widgets, I wander over to Central Park across the street. A little fresh air before I head back home and get buried in scrap at my inventing table again.

I was trying to catch a butterfly (and failing miserably) when a laugh coming from behind me tickles it's way up my spine and into the back recesses of my memory. I pause as pieces of China, a sandbox, and a seesaw flash through my head, combined with that laugh. I turn around and see none other than Lihua Wang, my very first real best friend! All grown up, baby fat gone, but that laugh remains.

Thoughts of inventing vanish. Instead, I grab her in a huge hug and burst out laughing! That's when the awkwardness starts and I realize she doesn't remember me. An introduction and explanation later she returns my hug and smiles. She even agrees to spending the day with me. I take her over to the gym and lose my very first game of darts to her.



As the evening arrives, I take her out for dinner at the Bistro. I can't remember what I order or even how it tastes, but I remember the candle light making her black hair shine and her dark brown eyes sparkle. We never stop talking, moving effortlessly from one topic to the next. She tells me about her family, how her mom Maya has passed away but her Dad Deng still lives in the old house. She has a brother, An, living in China and a half-sister in France whom she's never met. I tell her about Sami, my inventing, the awards I won in Shop Class, Dad's death. I could talk to this girl all night!



When she hints at getting tired, I ask if she wants to stay at the house instead of a hotel. She agrees on the condition that I call ahead and OK it with the family first.

I blame it on the spontaneity of the day, the surprise of renewing old acquaintances, and the magic of the night. It feels like coming home. The fireworks in my head and crackling down my spine make my toes curl.



Reality, as it has a habit of doing, comes crashing down the next morning when I wake up beside Lihua. She is so beautiful sleeping there, her black hair spilling all over the pillow. But she isn't Caroline. Oh gosh, Caroline! I jump backward out of bed so fast I hit my head on the trophy shelf hanging on the wall behind me. My eyes glaze over as I rub the sore spot, a slide show of Caroline running through my head: her beautiful purple eyes, my high school sweetheart and best friend, watching the stars, Prom, my birthday, how I haven't seen her since, Dad's wish, the lack of a ring, or a night like this with my Caroline. Dad. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all.

When she starts moving I high tail it out of the room and into a shower, buying a few more minutes to clear my head and think. The hot water doesn't help, all it does is cause blood to pool in my feet leaving my brain starved for oxygen and me feeling weak. I sit down on the toilet waiting for the room to stop spinning.

How long I sit there I have no idea, but I come back to reality when the knocking at the door reaches a desperate tempo and I hear Grandma Therie yelling, asking if I'm alright. In the 5 steps it takes me to reach the door, I realize the decision has already been made. Next up, breakfast, and then I have to break a lady's heart.

And mine.

Oh no!  Which one will he choose?  Caroline or Lihua?  I know which one is easier to spell! :)
God created Pie when He wanted a snack.  Pie was very pretty so lots of cute boys wanted her attention.  Eventually she ended up marrying a Greek god (Erebus) and having a child named Rebekah Ruella Felucia, nicknamed Bekka. <br />Bekka grew older and became the second vampire to exist, and is 9,086,753,423 years old.

Thanks for reading and commenting bekkaruella, kattiq, and Tom!

@ Tom, the giant face is a drafting table art work Patrick did when 'researching design concepts'. It's kind of neat. He's got about 8 pieces hung up in the room.

Ah, I don't normally do the Stylist Career so I've not done the research option very much. I really need to try out the Ambitions professions properly for once.  :)

Sciks: Week 36, Part 2

Unwilling to lead a double life like my Dad had for so many weeks, I know I can't just ignore that kiss from last night. Nobody told me being an adult would be this hard! There are so many things to consider: my family loves Caroline - they barely know Lihua, and since the kiss, dislike is the word to describe how they feel about her and me; this will be the last Sunburst wedding and spouse to move in - how important is my happiness relative to the overall Immortal Dynasty; is a foundation of growing up together stronger than a blissful childhood vacation in China; and is love that grows steady over weeks stronger/better than love at first sight?

The decision is made, now to find and break the heart of a lady I love. Argh! Why did Dad's betrayal have to instill in me such a potent need to be honest and upfront about matters of the heart? First, breakfast.

Breakfast is a quiet affair, my family, hurt by my actions of last night, don't speak to me. They are courteous and pleasant to Lihua as she is a guest in our home. I can't eat my Fruit Parfait fast enough but finally choke it down.

I manage to catch her at home before her shift at the Bookstore starts, and with a heavy heart, I break the news of my heart's decision to my first love, Caroline.



I apologize for my thoughtless behaviour, trying to explain that everything happened so suddenly last night.



She doesn't want to hear it and I guess I can't blame her. She throws me out of her house



When I get back home I have a long talk with the whole family. Begrudgingly, they decide to support my decision; I think I get some extra points for talking to Caroline right away instead of stringing her along.

The talk with Lihua (what an awkward morning it must have been for her!) produces favorable results. She agrees to move in so we can pursue our relationship without the hassles of a long distance separation.

Here is her new look: [Progressive Style hairstyle from ratchie (thank you Rachel), Rocker Outfit from Katluvr (thank you Katluvr). Lihua's favorite colour is Turquoise.]



The family gives us some privacy for breakfast the next morning, my favorite is Fruit Parfait - like my Dad - and her's is crepes. Grandma Therie is excited about being able to prepare a new dish for the family favorites! [OK, I admit, I'm super excited about a new family favorite!]



I get the opportunity chain to create the Ultimate Invention and spend most of the first half of the day dropping the necessary 'ingredients' off at the Science Center. Lihua gets bored of taking pictures around the house to share with her family back home in China and comes down to the Science Center just as I emerge with The Life Core. I want to share with her the awesomeness that is the potential of The Life Core but this whole thing may still blow up in my face so I keep it to myself. I'll tell everyone when I manage to actually create the Ultimate Invention that I need The Life Core for.

Anyway, she's there waiting when I come out and I ask if she wants a tour of the building. I tell her that Grandpa Wunn works here during the week and our family owns the facility.

After the tour, I ask Lihua an important question to which she responds: "Yes!"



And, maybe because this is an Immortal Dynasty, I decide to follow the urge and ask another important question. This one gets a "YES!" answer.





Later that night, to celebrate our engagement, Lihua and I head out for a night of dancing at the newly built (and promptly purchased) bar called The Brightmore. Upgrades and renovations to follow.



Saturday finds life almost back to normal in the Sunburst house. Lihua spends her time running around taking pictures to send home. Her Dad was quite choked up, but understanding, when she called home to tell him she wouldn't be returning from her 'trip to Twinbrook'. I guess she has found a reason to stay.

Behind the Bookstore she runs into a tourist from France and strikes up a conversation that goes from "My favorite food dish comes from France!" and turns into "Your Dad's name is what?!" It turns out this blonde-haired tourist from France is none other than Lihua's half-sister! [I didn't write down her name, sorry.] They spend the rest of the day talking about family and their home lands.



~~~~~~

The gnomes are not immune to the unrest and upheaval in the house.

This guy appeared out of nowhere and has made himself at home here on the Sunburst lot. It looks like the ladybug on his ear is making him go cross-eyed!



Our second generation gnomes have banded together, although we're not sure yet what exactly they're up to. Counterclockwise from the oldest one we have: Nooboo 1, Nooboo 2, Nooboo 3, Nooboo 4, and the lastest, Nooboo 5. I guess they really do grow into their hats.



~~~~~~

Next week: Possibly 3 Simbots, maybe a wedding, and hopefully a trip to China! (Fingers crossed the latest patch fixed my invisible-Sims-upon-arrival-at-their-WA-destination problem.)

Poor Caroline did not look happy but I am sure she will find someone else. Lihua is pretty I like that she has curves. I can't wait to see the wedding all my Sims are either teens or toddlers at the moment so no weddings for me.

Thanks for reading and leaving comments Gogo, Rachel, and Kattiq!

@ Gogo: I've lost a number of gnomes to the transfiguration display. They jump up on there and then don't actually poof back off, they get stuck to the display somehow and I have to sell it before I can transfigure more stuff - it usually sells for about 5,000! Bye bye gnomes. :(

I'm excited for my last Dynasty wedding too! I'm trying to see what I can swing in terms of traveling and such. Other than the happy couple, only Fyve has rolled the wish to see them get married - and it took her a couple days to come around!

I should have a chance to play tomorrow but with us going out of town for Christmas and New Year's, the chance of an update before Friday (when we leave) is fairly slim. Ooo, I'll have to post something, I decorated their house for Christmas this year so I should at least take and post a family Christmas picture.

No, because they're not Sims even if you give them names - but you should be able to move them in Buy mode, or theoretically you can grab and drag them even in Live mode. (Mine tend to get stuck in the fence for some reason.)

There isn't a gnome for me to grab and drag anywhere. They poof onto the transfiguration display and then simply become invisible - no longer show up anywhere on the lot. The spot where they were/are sitting is unusable by another objects. The only thing I can grab is the display - which appears empty of anything - and sell it for the depreciated price plus a few extra 1000 for "invisible" gnomes.

I haven't thought to fill the remaining empty spots on the display and hit "transfigure" just to see what comes out. Hmm, I'll have to try that just for curiosity's sake, see if I can transfigure my invisible gnomes. :P

I've gotten around it by leaving gems on the display so the gnomes don't have anywhere to sit.

Isn't there a way to manage what is on one of those displays? So you can remove/add items to it? You could try that.

I haven't thought of that, Tom, I usually drag and drop from the inventory list. I don't know if you can add/remove things from the transfiguration display with a pop-up box like for the fish tank or Omni Plant. I'll have to try that next time I play.
