Shade 1.13 - On a Side Note

I just wanted to do a short catch up on everything that has happened outside the family estate before we move on with our little heiress.

First I did some family trees because I actually thought to do it. No other reason really.

Upon returning to college, we find Blue trying to deal with his new status as a werewolf. Can you say breakdown?
Yes, yes. Catatonic. To much grape nectar no doubt. But I fix it. Stare unto my eyes and I will fix you.
After Blue was cured, the five Shade kids moved out of the dorm and started their own greek house. Not sure why I did that but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

It took Blue a while to get over his shock at being turned by his dad. But he did eventually get over it. That happened about the time he and Maggie got serious.

And this would be Maggie. Maggie Rocker is a downtownie. Blue met her while he was in college and he was just smitten. She was the girl for him and he refused to hear any different from me.
There weren't many pictures from college. I did the whole thing in one evening. The college clock was greatly used because I just wasn't in the mood to deal with it. I did no unnecessary skilling. It was the total opposite from my prosperity neighborhood. Those kids come out with badges, plaques and maxed skills. These kids just graduated. All five. Yeah.

Once back on Fruitandale Island, Burgundy Shade went 90k in debt to buy a house that came with M&G. She started dating her count. Unfortunately one night the Count got a bit peckish and did a little nibbling on Burgundy.

Now she's an evil vampire witch. It fits her I know.

But then William showed up one night to check up on his little girl. Unfortunately the Count was peckish again and William got bitten.

I really didn't mean for this to happen. William should learn not to walk into other people's lots. Poor William. He's been through it all now. Made a witch, plantsim, werewolf, vampire and abducted by aliens. What else is there? Burgundy went upstairs and up a batch of vampire cure. She gave it to William and sent him on his way. First thing I've got to do when I get back to the main lot is cure him. I don't need any elder vampires on the legacy lot.
Not much else happened with Burgundy. She's still dating the count. She's earning cash and trying to pay off her debt. But since she's not aging I didn't rush her into marriage or kids or anything. When she gets debt free, all bets are off.

After college, Blue Shade went 60k in debt to buy a maxis made house. His first guess was the crazy cow girl who harassed everyone during college. Blue's house is being ran as an ISBI household. I CAN keep from controlling all my sims. I know I can. Maybe.

Blue invited over Maggie and she moved in. Remember that Blue is a family sim and it turns out that Maggie Rocker is a knowledge sim.

Blue proposed. That townie guy kept staring the whole time. Freak.

Blue and Maggie were quickly married. This is Maggie's 'I'm on the verge of tears' look.

Since Maggie was a knowledge sim, I convinced Blue to share the love and turn her into a werewolf. Not sure why but Maggie doesn't show any fur when she changes. Because of the custom skin I suppose.

For the first time I have a sim with a terrible reputation. When Blue is gone she picks fights with whoever was left on the lot. She already has one enemy. My question is, can she turn someone into a werewolf by winning a fight against them while she's a werewolf? Guess we'll find out.

Blue quickly knocked up Maggie and she soon gave birth to their first child. It was a boy named Christof.

Isn't he a cutie. He's got his mom's eyes & his dad's custom skin.

Blue threw a birthday party for Christof to try to get the whole family together. Unfortunately the kids still in the sim bin didn't show. Bummer.

Christof become a toddler. Now my fun truly begins. I've always had problems just letting the toddlers run amuck.

Due to ACR, Maggie was soon pregnant again. She gave birth to natural twin sons. Her first son was named Carvel Shade.

The second son was named Casimir. All three boys have their mom's eyes.
Well that's all really. I didn't take many pictures but I thought I'd throw them in while I was updating.
Next time, we'll work Bronze up to adulthood and see about getting on with things. Maybe we can eventually get to generation three.

Shade 1.12 - Off to College

We're back. It' must be spring because Aqua is starting a garden.

Fresh grown goodies for everyone this fall.

But wait. It's birthday time again as William's alien twins daughters become teenagers.

First up is Bisque and as you can see she's yet another romancer.

I want lots of lovers in my life. Lots and lots and lots of yummy men for me.

Then it's Burgundy's turn and she wants a life of pleasure.
Can you picture me any other way?
No. Not really. You have always been a pleasure sim deep down.
Here is Bisque after her make over.

And we can't forget Burgundy. I can't believe you are wearing a pink shirt Burgundy. I always pictured you in black.

Look this is what I rolled into ok. I'll get my black outfit someday. Don't you worry.

Magus Mutatio!
And the twins become good witches too.

It's easy dear. Just put in a pinch of that blue powder.
Blue powder. Got it mom.
Bronze, that isn't blue.
Sure it is. Mom, does two or three shakes make a pinch?

You went overboard again. You said we would downsize this year. Does this look like downsize?
Well....I just wanted to have a little bit of everything. But don't worry. I won't let you get plantsimmed again. And if an accident happens Aqua has already made up some extra plantsim cure just in case.

Burnt lobster?
My wolf prefers it that way.

You have lived half of your teen years Brown so it's time for college I guess.
Yes. I'm ready. And with my diploma I should be able to earn tons of cash.

Well bye Brown. We'll see ya around.

A present? For me?
Yes dear. All of my old regents and a few things I made up for you. You'll need them.

Black's form sure has improved since childhood. He's starting to truly look like a spy.

Why? Why do they insist on trying to make me good. I'm not good. I don't want to be good. I want to be BAD! BAD! Ma wa ha ha ha. I WILL BE BAD! They can't stop me.

William. You've gone grey.
Yeah. I'm getting older. It's all these kids. They've taken all the color right out of my hair.
That sounds like my dad. He blames me for his grey hair too.

Well Burgundy. Don't you look evil.
Well I told you I wasn't good. No, the dark arts are for me.

But Bronze is really good. So good she's gone sparkly.
Aren't the sparklies pretty?

No Bronze. You have three options. You don't use rock EVERY time. You'll never win that way.
Ok. No rocks. How about paper? Can I be paper every time.

I really am enjoying my elder years. Now that you are leaving me and William alone, we have plenty of time to just cuddle.
Well I'm glad you're happy.

I see you've achieved your goal. You're so evil you've turned green.
Yeah, cool isn't it. I'm bad and I know it. He he he. You know, you just have to be true to yourself. And my self isn't good. She's bad.

Living outside the grid is really starting to pay dividends. Not only do I not have to worry about forgetting to pay bills, I make over a grand a week. Booyeah!

The teens work on the garden. It's been raining so much lately that the garden has really suffered. It took me forever to remember that my witches could easily make the rain go away. And by then the damage was done. Oh well. Spray those bugs girls. Spray on.

Umm, Burgundy? Are you sure you should stick your hand in that?
Shee! I'm working. It's tricky business creating a dark throne.

Oh Bisque. What were you thinking?
I just wanted to pet it.
Girl, you have been spending to much time hanging around Bronze.
Ak. Black's got a girl friend.
Do you mind. I'm working on my moves. A good spy has to be able to seduce with ease.
You're not a romance sim. You know that right?
I know. I'm a spy. We have to be whatever is needed at any given time.
Am I smooth or what?

I guess you are. You managed to steal a kiss.
It wasn't a theft. A true spy rarely steals. He gets people to give him what he wants.

He he he he.
What are you planning Burgundy?
Wouldn't you like to know.

Did you know werewolfs could call other wolves? Where have I been that I only just discovered this? So I had William call the pack together. William didn't have anything better to do anyway.

My first wolf walkby. How special.

She better watch it sniffing around my man. I'll hurt her if I have to.

Emmm. The vampire is HOT! I'm gonna get me some of that.
Fine. Just wait until you're out of college first.
William finishes up his lifetime aspiration benefits. Yeah William.

Hump. No matter how hard I throw it he still manages to catch it.
I'm a spy. I'm trained to deal with situations like this.

Thanks for the pool table.
You're welcome Black. I knew you needed one to work on your moves.
Yeah. You never know when this knowledge will come in handy. You have to always be prepared.
Rain rain go away. Come again another day.
Our little girl has learned how to do a spell. I'm going to cry.

Why isn't it working?

Ok. Hold off on the tears.

Got it. I did a spell.

I knew you could do it.

All of the teens have lived at least 7 days of teenhood so it's time for them to head off to college.

Now you will notice that Bronze has no scholarship. That's because our heiress isn't going to college. She's going to live out her entire life here on the family estate. I've been considering letting one or two of the kids come back from college and live out there life on the estate too. Not really sure about that yet. But for now Black, Burgundy and Bisque are off to join Blue and Brown at college. We'll figure out the rest later.
