7.Four: Who Wants to Live Forever?

Welcome back! Last time, Cait took an insanely long break and then returned out of nowhere after 3 1/2 years, the triplets became children, some rainbow puppies were born, and Tomato grew up and moved out.

And we’re back at it!

Our scene opens with two awesome girls doing homework! Yay! It’s always nice when the kids take it upon themselves not to flunk out of school.

Synchronized chatting. XD

Screenshot-66Screenshot-82Screenshot-64Screenshot-80

Guess which mod I forgot to re-download? Yep! The “stop-asking-for-gorram-bedtime-stories” mod. –.-

Screenshot-94

THIS IS WHY IT’S SO ANNOYING. They get the story, then they get OUT of bed, just to pass out on the floor. Why, game, why?

Screenshot-65

Star: Ungrateful child.

It’s not her fault, Star. The game is just coded that way.

Screenshot-95

Aaaand then she stood up and promptly peed herself. C’mon Mojo, I was defending you!

Screenshot-70Screenshot-71Screenshot-73

Looks like Star knows how to work out her frustrations. XD

Screenshot-74

Mojo: Hey, I wanted to hold Dim Sum!

Screenshot-75

Thunderbird: Sorry, I guess she just likes me better!

Rood.

Screenshot-77

Mojo: Fine, I’ll just go toss a little ball with Grandma Taffy.

Screenshot-78

Mojo: “Ouch! Hey!”

Screenshot-79

Taffy: Sorry, family trait. It’s dangerous to play catch with a Sorbet!

Screenshot-76

Hey, someone’s using the patio furniture! I approve.

Screenshot-81Screenshot-92

This also pleases me. Strawberry can only do so much!

Screenshot-83Screenshot-91

Especially now that she has a job! She rolled the wish to become a professional gardener.

Screenshot-84Screenshot-90

Mojo: Ah ha! Thunderbird’s outside. Now all the doggies are belong to me!

Screenshot-97

Meanwhile, I actually stopped being lazy and had Strawberry invite her girl over.

Screenshot-96Screenshot-98Screenshot-99

These two waste no time.

Screenshot-100

Cinnamon Roll:  *Struts*

Strawberry: *Barfs*

Too much of a wild ride for you, Strawberry? Smile with tongue out

Screenshot-88Screenshot-101

More autonomous lovin’ for these two. Just no more babies, guys, ok? You’ve had your turn.

Screenshot-101Screenshot-104

Strawberry, on the other hand….apparently isn’t quite done yet!

Screenshot-102

Hey, she finished a painting!

Screenshot-106

Screenshot-110

I wasn’t quick enough to catch a passed-out picture, but this is Thunderbird waking up from it.

Thunderbird: It’s a full moon – strange things happen! It’s not my fault!

Uh huh.

Screenshot-109

Hmm. Maybe there’s something to that theory, after all. WTH, Strawberry?

Strawberry: Clothes are overrated.

Screenshot-111

Hey, they all made it to school today! That doesn’t always happen. Although Thunderbird is in the red again. I sense more lost points ahead.

Screenshot-112

Why are you not on the bus home? Here come my lost points.

Screenshot-113Screenshot-114

She proceeded to eat a lovely park-provided burger and take a nap on a park bench. That’s my girl!

Thunderbird: See? Have a little more faith in me.

Screenshot-116Screenshot-115

Bam: Ah HA! Take that, evil bone!

It’s looking like Bam will be the next canine TH. She seems to have at least some of her mom’s genes in her facial shape. But Boo might surprise me! Still several days until they age up. Puppyhood is so long!

Screenshot-118Screenshot-117

Should I quote David Bowie again? Re-reading this challenge, I realized I did that twice, several chapters apart. XD But it fits so well! RIP, Bowie. T.T

Screenshot-119

Poppy: Any lurking monsters better GTFO. I’m not about to lose Cait any points by being unable to sleep!

That’s my girl.

Screenshot-120

Left on free will, Strawberry chooses to bathe little Lucy. ❤

Screenshot-121

Jack: Just one taste of lobster…s’all I ask…zzzzZZZzzzz

Screenshot-122Screenshot-123Screenshot-124

Baby time! Meet little boy, Cocoa Bean.

Screenshot-123

Screenshot-125

…AND little girl, Cherry. O.O I forgot Strawberry had the fertility treatment reward.

Screenshot-124

Screenshot-127

Looks like Cocoa is a fairy!

Screenshot-126

Persy: Takes after his grandpa, yes he does!

We’ll see just how much at his next birthday. Speaking of which…

Screenshot-128Screenshot-130Screenshot-132

It’s time for a triple birthday!

Screenshot-129

Thunderbird gained the rebellious trait.

Screenshot-131

Poppy became a mooch.

Screenshot-133

And Mojo is now a workaholic.

It was at this point I realized no one was aging properly. Strawberry had been pregnant for the typical 3 days, but the trips hadn’t gotten a single day closer to their teen birthdays, so I caked them because I knew it was time.

Screenshot-134

I’m not sure why this was happening, but I hoped a move would fix it, so I packed everyone up…

Screenshot-135

..And moved them across town to a house I took way too long building.

Screenshot-137

It’s just a single story, but I made sure to include a ton of fun activities that I hope will keep everyone busy! Crossing fingers this move fixes the aging problem.

Screenshot-136

So, what do you all think of the new house?

Strawberry: I’m hungry.

Mojo: I saw the cars out front. Gooooood.

Screenshot-138

Dim Sum: This bench is good for clawing!

Persy: *Too….tired…*

Well, ok. The transition isn’t going as well as I’d hoped.

Screenshot-139

Strawberry: Poor Dad!

Poor ME! My scooooore. T.T

Screenshot-140

It took a while, but everyone finally found the babies’ room, so they could put them down and Strawberry could tend to their needs. I was worried there for a minute…they were crying a lot! And of course, once Strawberry was able to pick them, everyone else thought they would actually try to be helpful. ><

Screenshot-141Screenshot-142

Oh hey, someone found the half-pipe! ….Too bad it’s just a zombie.

Screenshot-143

Why does the snow have to go potty?

Screenshot-147

Oh. XD

Screenshot-145Screenshot-146

Yay, they are discovering the household amenities!

Screenshot-148

Omg Mojo, that puddle was you, wasn’t it?

Mojo: Nope. Nuh-uh. Definitely not me.

Screenshot-149

That miasma of stench around you says otherwise. I am disappoint.

Screenshot-150

Aw, Great-Grandma loves the baby!

Screenshot-183Screenshot-151Screenshot-161

Our pretty virtuoso has introduced herself to every instrument except the drums, so far!

Screenshot-152Screenshot-178

Cute dogs are cute.

Screenshot-153

What a beautiful day for some father-daughter bonding!

Screenshot-154

Aw, I was hoping it’d be the evil snowman. XD Then I looked it up and realized only daredevil, evil, and mean-spirited sims can make it.

Screenshot-155

Oooh, who is autonomously getting nice and clean?

Screenshot-156

It’s Dim Sum! Well done!

Screenshot-162

You can’t tell, but that’s Strawberry trying out the snowboarding, now. Woo!

That night, she got invited to a party at Cinna’s house. For some reason, she decided to bring Cherry with her.

Screenshot-159

Strawberry: Hey, beautiful! Thanks for providing a crib for Cherry. If I had to hold her the whole time, I couldn’t do this.

Screenshot-158

Cinna: Actually, babe, I was hoping you’d bring all the kids. And that you’d stay…with me. Haven’t we tiptoed around this issue long enough? I want to be with you, and with our children.

Thinking as fast as a sim with commitment issues can think, Strawberry sought to buy time.

Screenshot-157

Strawberry: Oh, but…I thought you understood. You’re a fairy, and I’m just a regular sim. You’ll outlive me by many, many years. I want to save you that pain. I’m only thinking of you, darling.

Cinna: I have a plan. That’s why I threw this party. See my friend, Jerome, there behind you? He’s a vampire. He could turn you, and then you and I could be together. What do you say, Strawberry? Do you want to live forever with me?

Screenshot-170

Strawberry: Welcome to Isla Paradiso, everyone! I’m sure we’ll all like it here much better than Lucky Palms.

Nice move, Strawberry. ><

But yeah, moving across town did not fix the aging problem. Hopefully this does!

Hey, Fitz, quit playing with the food bowl! No wonder the poor puppies are always hungry.

  1. Gah it’s still so surreal that you’re back—and so exciting!! *runs around in circles* *deep breathing* OKAY. I AM OKAY.

    Gosh those bedtime stories are annoying! I mean I think they’re annoying enough what with having to cancel out the interaction, but of course in an ISBI you can’t do that so T_T Time to dig out the old mods, haha.

    Also LOL that photo of naked Strawberry with the potted plant covering precisely the right places. Clever picture—made me crack up XD Full moon madness….pun intended.

    Cocoa and Cherry—awww yay!!! So many adorable babies! :3

    AND LOL OMG. Poor Cinna! I totally wasn’t expecting that abrupt move. NICE TRANSITION, LMAO. Hopefully the move will fix things right up XD

    • StyxLady says:

      Hahaha oh gosh, well my game has had its share of problems since I started playing again! All the old companions I remember so well – gray screen of death, no aging, a few seconds of playing then a few secs of lag…but I’m soldiering through! Only 3 more generations to go!

      Yeah, I need to grab that bedtime stories mod again, if I can stop bein’ lazy.

      Bahaha, sometimes I wonder what the heck my sims must be thinking. XD There are too many sims in that house to be walking around nekkid!

      So far, the move has worked! Aging seems to be back on track…whew!

  2. Dim Sum is just so dang cute in every picture!

    At least naked Strawberry was cleaning; that’s got to count for something.

    Welcome Cocoa and Cherry!

    Cinna wanted to be more committed, so Strawberry moved towns. That’s one way to deal with her issues. Will we see Cinna again?

  3. Kim says:

    I had nearly forgotten how beautiful all of your Sims are. I LOVE getting to see them again!

    LOL Strawberry is very talented at not addressing her problems! She’s still one of my favorites 😀

  4. Sophia says:

    Loving the way the triplets came out! Gotta say, Mojo is the cutest IMO ;P

  5. Bokavoy says:

    I’m so glad that you are bringing this back!
