Yes, the second update for today. I'm off on holiday for the bank holiday weekend from tomorrow afternoon, so I wanted to get in a couple more updates before then.

The Twin Perils of Homework and Fire



Verity: Is homework easier when you do it with someone else?

Tober: No. It's always impossible. I hate homework.

Lexa: I'm sure it was harder 20 years ago.



Tober: Mummy, that doesn't help.

Ooh. You've been told, Lex.



Roderick: Ahh, peace. That, and I've just learnt how to prepare Key Lime Pie.

Mmm, can you make some for me?

Roderick: Not unless you climb into your computer, no.

I might be short, but I doubt I'd fit.



October gets her first Black Op, one of the scavenger hunts.



Tober: No, really, I agree with Dad. That's never going to fit in my pocket.

No, because there's not going to be any room because your bike's already in there.



Lexa is still not giving up on the potential for minions.

Lexa: There's actually loads of benefits to being a criminal if you're in with the boss. I'd pay you loads, seeing as you're practically my daughter, and you'd never have to do anything risky or dangerous. In fact, you could just sit in the lair and help me plot if you wanted.

Verity: I think I'd rather invent toys.

Lexa: Boring.



Tober is invited over to her friend Lynette's house after school. They do their homework together and play a bit of tag.

Tober: I hate blackboards. They make that horrible squeaky sound sometimes.



This however means that Verity is left to do her homework alone.

Verity: It makes my head hurt.



As every parent knows, you don't get fun time until you do your homework. But as soon as it's done Tober is back on her easel.



Not that Lexa is paying all that much attention to what her kid's doing.



Verity ends up being supervised by the paparazzi. Really, kids shouldn't be allowed to use blowtorches and hammers by themselves, should they? Maybe I hate the paparazzi a little bit less for at least keeping an eye on Verity.



It's not all skilling, though.

Tober: I, October Marie CrumpleSteel, am queen of this realm and so I order you to bring me a new pot of orange paint.


 
It's a good job somebody was supervising Verity.



Verity: Help! Help! Somebody! Help!

We haven't even got a shower! (There really wasn't one on the lot. There is now.)





Lexa: Install a shower. Next time I might not have a fire extingusher handy.

Why do you?

Lexa: Borrowed Kelsey's years ago.

But Verity is safe. That's the main thing.



Verity: Don't you find your mum appearing in rooms like that dead freaky?

Tober: Yep. But she's a martial artist, so we shouldn't say that too loud. What did you put for the one about the train?

Verity: I haven't even got that far yet! I'm rubbish at this!

Next time: Three birthdays, pranking the art gallery, and driving lessons.

Thanks Corey, Raia and sims4ever!

Not-So-Little Women



Verity: Look what I made, watcher!

It's a...?

Verity: Dog.

Lexa: Maybe it could be a good minion. Better than anyone else round here anyway.



Tober: *grumbling* Why will nobody ever clean this bath? I can't live like this. It's not right.



The kids play tag for one last time before their teen birthday. We're doing cakes at midnight, which is like pistols at dawn just less dangerous.



Tober goes first.



Tober: Really, this bun?

She gets the Hopeless Romantic trait. Mainly because she doesn't need any more for her supermax skill and her career trait won't be useful until YA, so she might as well have a just-for-fun trait.



And then Verity.

Verity: So how do I do this candles thing again?



She becomes a Natural Cook, because Roderick's going to be the tombstone and once he's gone Verity will be the only one allowed to learn the cooking skill.

Roderick: Yay! Cooking!



She's got the hang of this supermaxing a skill business already. As you can see she wanted to dye her hair. Apparently she wants to express herself.

Tober: Black is boring. Red is exciting, passionate, vibrant...

Yeah. Artists.

Tober: I can't have a hair colour that isn't perfect! Do you want me to be a freak in school?!

Okay, she's worse than an artist. She's a teenage artist.



Tober is eventually prised away from the easel to take driving lessons from her mum.

Lexa: Look, are you sure you don't want to be a criminal? You could have nice cars, and drive fast, and...

Tober: No. For the last time Mum, no!

Lexa: Worth a try.



However, this might not have been the best place to try.

Lexa: Please stay in a straight line. Please. I'm too young to die.



Lexa: Ahh!



Lexa: The stress, it's made me old!



Where are you off to?

Tober: Home. It's after curfew and I'm scared if I get brought home in a police car my mum will die of happiness.

At least you wouldn't get grounded.



Verity: Toby?

Tober: Tea?

Verity: Best friends forever?

Tober: Yeah!



Tober: This isn't art. This is a load of clocks.



Tober: Hmm. I have a plan.

That's the face your mum used to pull when she was planning something.



Pranking art is normally seen as a bad thing, babe.

Tober: But it isn't good art!



Tober: And I think this art gallery is fundamentally flawed because...

Vampire: Eww. Art. It smells baaaddd.



Verity: That didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped.

Not Being Like Your Parents



Lexa and Roderick are very much in love.



Roderick: Ouch. Not sure my back is up to this kind of thing anymore.

Lexa: You'd better not be taking photos of this! I can't have anyone at work seeing my smushy side!

And now I have it on record that you have a smushy side. I love it.

Lexa: Grr.



Lexa: Grr. Got to spend all night driving round on this motorbike now just to get my image back. Stupid watcher.



Here's this chapter's shot of Toby painting, but with added Verity playing games for the difference factor.

Tober: Hmm, I think it needs a bit more black.



Tober: Prom on Friday.

Don't look so scared!



Tober: I can't believe prom is so early. We've only been in school a day. How on the moon do they expect us to have checked out enough boys to decide who we want to invite?

Verity: I don't think I want to go with anyone anyway. What if they say no?

Tober: Nobody would say no to you, Tea.

Verity: Well, he would.

Tober: He? Tell me, tell me!

And me!

Tober: Watcher, get out. Private chat.



You'd better watch out, Lex, or you'll turn into your dad.

Lexa: Can't a woman read a book in peace?

Yep, turning into your dad.



Paparazzi: Aha! When you installed these doors you didn't think it through, did you? I can see everything you're doing! It'll be on the front page of the papers tomorrow.

Roderick: I'm reading a cookbook, it's hardly the scandal of the year.

Paparazzi: Can you not ruin my moment?



Why are you doing your homework on the side of the road?

Verity: Toby's trying to make me go to the prom.

You'll enjoy it. Trust me.



Tober: Trust me, it'll be fine. All we have to do is... WATCHER! GET OUT!

Plotting. Just like your mother.



Lexa: *mumbling* Not enough like her mother. Won't go on the treadmill. Doesn't want training. Doesn't want to become a criminal...



Toby's prom outfit. Her eyes aren't really that narrow, it's just a bad picture.



Verity's.



Verity: Tobes?

Tober: It'll be fine. You look amazing. He'll love you.

Verity: You've planned something, haven't you?



Tober: Let's get in there!



You know you can stop waving goodbye now? They're gone.

Lexa: I wasn't. I was surveying my realm.

Oh. Right. Obviously.

Snuff - I sometimes forget they're not sisters too. It's only because Verity has an IF hair colour that I remember. I only intended to have one kid this generation but then I remembered that no heirs can learn cooking or handiness so it's almost compulsory to have a spare.

Corey - I'm glad it makes you laugh! That particular pap is always doing really weird things outside the house.

Teen Parties, Part 1



Lexa: I can't wait for our holiday. No kids.

Roderick: I just hope they don't invite over any boys. They're far too young for boys.

Lexa: Tober's too interested in her art to think about that. And Verity's far too shy to ever ask one round. I think we're fine.

Roderick: Good.

Lexa: And anyway, you'd say they're too young for boys even when they reach my age.



Verity: So are you going to give me that piano lesson you promised me when the parents are away?

Tober: When we've done this homework. What did you get for number 4?

Lexa: Bye girls, behave!

Verity: She's gone.

Tober: Excellent.



Tober: Yeah, come round now, they've gone to the airport. Course you can bring Evan. Ring Kory too, I've got the girls to invite.

Verity: I'm not sure about this.

Tober: It'll be fine!



This is Kory Something-Or-Other, Verity's romantic interest from the prom.

Verity: So, hey Kory. How's stuff?

Kory: Um, alright thanks, you?

Verity: Umm, yeah, umm, fine.

*awkward silence*



Tober: So you think I should ask him?

Evan: Yeah! He spent all of today at school trying to go over and ask you out. And asking me to do it for him. He's really into you.



Tober: Hey Kris.

Kristopher Sekemoto: Hey Toby.

Tober: So you know that kiss last night at prom...



Tober: ...how about another one?

Kris: Ooh.



Tober: You're so cute.

Kris: So are you. You're like an adorable little carrot.

Tober: Awww. You're cuter. You're cuter than a little baby bird.



Tober: You don't want to be my boyfriend, do you?

Kris: Of course I do, little carrot.



Tober: He's so cute...



Meanwhile, over the other side of the room, more romance is in the air.

Kory: Oh, sorry, is that your hand?

Verity: I don't mind.



Verity: Really I don't.

Kory: I don't either.



All together now, aww!



After all the snogging it's time for some dancing. I think Tober's trying to do the funky chicken. The girl in the pink puffa jacket is called LeAnn. It's nice actually having some teens in school with my sims for once, so they can do things like this.



Lynette James passes out. And there wasn't even any nectar.



Shortly followed by everyone else.



Kris serenades Tober with the piano. Shame it's 5am and she's fast asleep.

I'm guessing Lexa and Roderick got that opportunity to disappear for two days? My Sims often get that but my teens never have parties. It's just homework, school, bed  :P

Yep, they got one of the free vacation opps. I don't normally even accept them, I'm always too scared of glitching the file. But these two seemed perfect for teen parties!

Thought I'd update again while I have a chance to and so many screenies sat in folders.

Teen Parties, Part 2



Verity: Yeah, they're away tonight too. And the hot-tub arrived, so bring your swimming costumes.

Tober: I knew you'd warm to the partying.



Kory: I brought you some flowers.

Verity: Wow, they're beautiful! Toby, look what Kory bought me!



I think she's otherwise occupied.

Verity: Yeah, just a little bit.



Irene: Euuuurrrggghhh

Evan: Braaaaiiiiinnnnsss.

Just because Supernatural is coming out soon, does not mean you need to practice for becoming zombies.



Tober: I challenge you to a pillowfight!

Kris: Oh yeah? I'm going to beat you.

Tober: In your dreams!



Turns out Tober is actually quite violent.

Kris: Alright, alright, truce!



Kory: *internally* I love Verity, she's adorable and cute and...

Verity: *internally* Kissing is tiring.



Tober: You know Evan, Lynette really likes you.

Evan: Does she? Really?

Tober: Yeah she's been saying it for days!

Evan: I dunno...

Tober: Trust me! I trusted you about Kris, right?



Evan: Hey, Lyn.

Lynette: Hey. *internally* What's he up to?

Evan: So, umm, do you want to go for a date sometime, or maybe like right now?

Lynette: I thought you'd never ask.



Lynette: *internally* I'm still not sure what he really sees in me, but I'll definately go along with this!



Verity: Did you just see Lynette and Evan?

Irene Su: I know! I can't believe they've finally got together!



Verity: I can't believe how much mess everyone left behind last night. I mean seriously. There were towels and everything, did they really need to drip in the kitchen? And Tober's still in bed.



Verity: Oh, how was your holiday Mrs CrumpleSteel? Did you go on that boat cruise, or...



Lexa: How dare you?! Having not one, but TWO parties while we were away?! With boys?!

Verity: I...I...

Lexa: You're grounded. Starting now.

Verity: I...



Lexa: You too, October Marie! I can't believe we trusted you!

October: Mum!



Lexa: Don't you 'mum' me. We're disappointed in you, we thought better.

October: I hate you.
