Chapter 2.3: Life Happens

Well hello there! Last chapter Malia aged up and married her good friend Antony (yes I know I was spelling it Anthony, but it’s actually Antony.) Malone went to the Hijinks festival and took home a voodoo doll. And Malcolm aged into a child.

10-24-17_9-39-47 AMPaolo: So kid you know what you wanna do with your life yet?

Malone: Not a 100%, but I know I want to help people.

Paolo: You have a strange way of helping people; pulling pranks on them and all.

Malone: Most of the people like the pranks I pull, and those that don’t…well…I’m giving them an avenue to vent their frustrations.

Paolo: If you say so kid.

Mallory celebrates her YA birthday with friends and family. And she is, I think, the best combination of her parents genetics. Malia looks more like Payton and Malone looks more like Malachite.

10-24-17_10-37-12 AMMallory entered the Science career, and because she had really good grades she starts at level 3 Junior Tinkerer. I think the science career is a really good fit for Mallory and her Nerd Brain aspiration.

10-24-17_10-41-32 AMTo help with Mallory’s logic skill I got the Observatory.

Nothing super exciting happened at her first day of work, except one of her co-workers died.

But when Mallory came home the family was in the midst of turmoil. Paolo, beloved husband to our founder Pearl, rad ass dad and grandpa finally passed to the great beyond to be with the love of his life.

10-25-17_10-21-41 AMThe whole household took Paolo’s death hard, especially Mallory who thought she had brought death home with her. She decided to take care of Pearl’s garden; which her grandpa loved to spend time in.

Malachite and Peyton decided to turn Paolo’s room into a room for Malone.

10-24-17_12-25-58 PMAnd Mal spent much of his time grieving in a closet.

10-24-17_12-26-20 PMPaolo and Pearl can now rest in peace together.

10-25-17_10-07-08 AMA few days later Malachite had his elder birthday.

10-25-17_10-23-25 AMThe family decided to do a minor makeover in the kitchen.

10-25-17_10-29-57 AMFrom his mother’s garden Malachite decides to retire from his career as a writer.

Mal: Yeah boss, I’m sure. I have much to occupy my time. And hopefully soon I’ll have some grandchildren running around.

10-25-17_11-09-13 AMSo I forgot to mention Mallory’s final trait (which is Geek), but luckily I took this handy picture of all of her traits including the ones for being a responsible and good mannered sim when she was growing up.

10-25-17_11-14-49 AMI love how sims personalities are expressed in their portraits. Malia is a very confident, athletic sim and Mallory is very a elegant yet nerdy sim.

10-25-17_11-45-49 AMAnd another birthday party, this time for our heir Malone.

Malone received the lazy trait as his adult trait. He also got good manners, responsible, and compassionate (from empathy). Now Chief of Mischief really doesn’t suit him.

10-26-17_10-17-03 AMMalone entered the Politician career, eventually he would like work for a charitable organization.

10-26-17_10-20-40 AMThis voodoo doll has no right looking as cute as it does!

10-26-17_10-22-48 AMSo here is where Malone is at with his aspiration. I believe after he completes this set he has one more tier to go.

10-26-17_10-23-32 AMMalcolm working on his child aspiration, only needs to get to level 10 mental skill and he’s done, hopefully he’ll be done before is birthday.

10-26-17_10-35-07 AMFinally able to afford the rocket ship Mallory needs for her aspiration.

10-26-17_11-03-57 AMThis is the first fireplace I have had in the sims 4! I have always thought them to be a waste of space and kinda unnecessary, but they give off a great moodlet when it has a fire going. Plus this living room is kinda sparse so it needed some pizzazz.

10-26-17_11-52-48 AM Malcolm completed his aspiration just in time for his teen birthday!

10-26-17_11-57-55 AMHe completed it the day of his birthday. And since I was playing his birthday right around halloween, Malcolm gets a zombie cake.

10-26-17_11-59-33 AMPeyton: No! My baby’s growing up!

Malcolm_teenMalcolm received the snob trait and angler aspiration. He, like Mallory is a good combination of his parents.

11-10-17_9-25-39 PMAs you can see by the equipment behind Malone…I have the Cats and Dogs expansion! So after moving the family to Brindleton Bay and buying a lot for my Vet clinic this was all that I could afford. But that will soon  change!

And I know I wasn’t supposed to move my legacy family off the lot they started on, but I really didn’t want to start a new legacy just to explore Brindleton Bay and I really wanted to explore Brindleton Bay!

11-10-17_9-30-43 PMMalone: Welcome Supriya to the Hideaway Clinic, you ready to get started?

Supriya: Um…are you sure this is the right place? *looks around nervously* This is pretty much an empty lot.

Malone: It won’t be for long, trust me.

11-10-17_9-36-32 PMThough Malone hired a more experienced Vet he was eager to take on the first client; who happened to be Supriya’s husband Justin. I think Justin is his name.

11-10-17_9-39-23 PMSupriya took on the next client and both clients ended up surprisingly satisfied with their vet visit.

11-10-17_9-45-19 PM So I didn’t realize that when I sent Malone to the clinic that his family technically wasn’t home, even though they are standing in front of their new house. So every one but Mallory had a bladder fail.

11-10-17_9-46-57 PMHere is their new house. I’m quite pleased with how the build turned out. I’m not really great with building especially landscaping.

11-10-17_9-51-00 PMSo I’ll give a partial tour now and the rest later. Here is the Kitchen, dining room, and living room. As you can see Malone is busy ready the mischief book to level up his skill.

11-10-17_9-51-32 PMAnd Mallory is winding down by watching a movie in the home theater.

The master bedroom and bathroom.

11-10-17_10-02-41 PMWell we will have to resume our house tour at a later date as our welcome wagon has arrived.

The Vet clinic also received a minor makeover. We actually have walls around our equipment!

11-10-17_10-50-57 PMMalone: Aw hey gramps, it’s so good to see you. I was worried the move might have disturbed your eternal rest. I miss you!

Paolo: Don’t worry kid it’s nothing your grandma and I couldn’t handle. And we miss you too, but don’t worry we’ll visit.

11-11-17_9-43-04 AMThese two are just too cute.

11-11-17_9-49-52 AMSo I sent Mal to open the clinic and he decides, all on his lonesome, to use a flirty introduction on one of the clients!

11-11-17_9-50-25 AMNeedless to say this guy was smitten. And he gave us a good review on the service!

Malcolm found a fishing spot near the local doggie park. Brindleton Bay is gorgeous!

Malone goes to this bar to clog the drain and happens upon bear night. Malone does not look impressed with the bears. Also his pranks backfire on him.

11-11-17_11-03-32 AMMalone goes to the competing Vet clinic in town to check out the competition only to find his one employee there. He didn’t seem to mind though.

11-11-17_11-05-06 AMMalone: Oh hey, I uh run a vet clinic at the other side of town if you ever want to check it out?

Catarina: Is this a pick up line? I mean not that I mind, but it could be better.

Malone: No I really rund a vet clinic, but if you wanna go out sometime just give me call.

Mal: Oh hey, what’s that light? Wait…why am I flying…Hey I do NOT consent to this!

11-11-17_11-51-24 AMMal: Oh crap!

Tune in next time to see what happens next? Will Malachite survive his stay with the aliens? Will Malone run a successful vet clinic?

Chapter 2.2: Hijinks and Weddings

Last time the Harwoods added some updates to their house. Malia, Malone, and Mallory had their teen birthdays, and Malcolm had his toddler birthday. And Malone started to work on his aspiration Chief of Mischief.

Malone is up to more shenanigans, this time at the Romance Festival. I can’t wait till he completes this aspiration.

Mallory spent the day hanging out with this guy, I believe his name is Sebastien, at the gym. Their just friends for now.

07-22-17_6-39-59 PMIt seems that not too long ago it was Malcolm’s toddler birthday and now he is turning into a child.

Malcolm_childLook at this cutie! He is a whiz kid with the insider trait.

Mal_asp Malachite reached level three in the critic career, or past that, so he quit and now he is doing something else though I can’t recall what at the moment.

08-06-17_9-21-12 PM It’s an assembly line of school projects! Good thing we have three adults in the house to help out!

08-06-17_9-31-21 PMAnother festival means more hijinks. And of course Malone joined the Pranksters. Purple rather suits him.

08-06-17_9-38-43 PMAnd the pranksters won, by one point I believe.

08-06-17_9-39-59 PMMalone here has a Voodoo doll, this could be dangerous!

08-06-17_9-57-32 PMSchool projects are finished and on display.

08-08-17_8-31-26 AMA gathering of people can mean only one thing, PAR-TAY!

08-08-17_8-50-30 AMMalia’s birthday to be specific.

After her birthday Malia and Anthony go out on a date. They are too cute, it’s quite nauseating.

The next day Malia asks Anthony out on another date and proposed to him.

08-08-17_10-18-05 AMPaolo went to Kunzite’s house and greeted his new grandson. I can’t remember his name though 😦

08-08-17_11-19-45 AMMalone: Hey grandma, it’s nice to meet you.

Bzzzzzz

Malone Harwood! Pranking your grandmother isn’t nice!

08-08-17_11-34-53 AMMalia and Anthony exchanged their I do’s.

08-08-17_11-37-22 AMMalone: Congratulations Malia, this is quite the party you have thrown.

Malia: I know I’m pretty amazing!

08-08-17_11-39-27 AMMalia: Of course an open bar helps.

08-08-17_11-40-41 AMMalia: Wait don’t take a picture, can’t you see I’m having an emergency!

08-08-17_11-44-55 AMWith a bath upstairs Malia’s emergency was easily taken care of, and she resumed her hosting.

08-08-17_11-55-17 AMSimply gorgeous!

08-08-17_10-47-42 PMBefore Malia moves out we have to capture a picture of her amazingness.

08-08-17_10-55-52 PMMallory: Ughhh why is everyone so happy all the time?! Just leave me alone for a while!

08-09-17_12-36-26 PMOf course Malone can’t meet anyone without pulling a prank on them. However he has more friends than enemies, go figure.

08-09-17_12-38-22 PMMalone: My greatest wish is to find my soul mate, like Malia found in Anthony.

Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be….at least for now. Will Malone find love? Will I ever complete his dreadful aspiration? Will Mallory get out of her funk? Maybe one day till then *”Have a Day!” #darinandamy #davorpals.

*from Darin and Amy have to do a Morning Show

Chapter 2.1: It’s a Legacy After All

Last time we saw the Harwoods, Malia was able to get the final sugar skull for her grandpa’s collection. Mal almost burned down the house trying to transform one of the date rewards, but luckily Paolo and Mal were able to put the fire out. Mal also completed his 2nd aspiration. Malia had her teen birthday. And the fourth and final child of this generation was born.

01-08-17_10-00-51 PM Starting off this chapter is a little house update. I moved the family crypt from outside to the basement, also I put the gym down there as well. I hope to expand the basement to incorporate skill rooms.

01-08-17_10-14-17 PMPaolo is still keeping up with the garden in memory of his beloved Pearl. All the plants are magnificent quality.

01-08-17_10-17-24 PMSince Mal completed his second aspiration he is working on his third aspiration Renaissance Sim. Also I’m not sure I mentioned this the last time but he has a career as a Critic, but he will need to change soon to finish a milestone for his aspiration.

01-10-17_8-07-37 AMEver the social sim Malia went to the park to catch up with her cousins Zoisite (left) and Ruby (right). Zoisite also has the super skinny body type, but she inherited it from her mother Madelyn Hartley.

01-10-17_8-11-33 AM Mallory accompanied her sister to the park to work on her social skills as well, she too caught up with her cousin Zoisite.

Malia made a generous donation to the wishing well in hopes of a romance, but all she received was a flirty moodlet which was wasted because no one eligible showed up at the park 😦

Disappointed Malia went home to cook away her frustrations and Mallory continued to skill.

Paolo: Just keep running, just keep running, la-de-la…

Paolo’s favorite pastime, of course, is exercising. He also loves to hang out with his family.

07-14-17_10-23-09 PMPearl! You came back for a visit!

Pearl: Of course! Can’t keep me away from this little nooboo!

07-14-17_10-23-43 PMPearl: Definitely can’t keep me away from my hunk of a hubby!

Payton: Mallory I appreciate you expressing your creative side, but please don’t make a mess on the lawn.

Mallory: Alright mom. I’ll clean it up.

07-14-17_11-17-43 PMMallory: *Big sigh* This isn’t as much fun.

07-15-17_12-06-17 AMYay my first toddler of sims 4! Malcolm grew up pretty darn cute, and he’s a charmer!

The first few moments of toddler-hood were not fun for this little tyke.

07-15-17_12-16-26 AMMalcolm: Whas dis?

Super cute! Of course I’m 100% biased.

07-15-17_12-16-59 AMMallory: Hey Grandpa! Look, I just set the table.

Paolo: Good job kid. Looks nice.

Mallory: Wait, that’s all…

Paolo: All…what?

Mallory: I don’t know. I thought I’d at least get to stay up later than normal.

Paolo: You just made a mess in the backyard. I think you need to be on good behavior longer than a few hours.

I was one of those people who didn’t really care that they took out toddlers for the sim 4; but now that we have them back I’m super excited, I mean how can you not with this cuteness? Although that might change after a while….

07-15-17_12-36-17 AMMal: Well kid you fumbled on a few key notes and your technique needs work, but you have a solid foundation. I’ll give you a 7 out of 10.

Malone: Ummm….thanks dad…I think.

07-15-17_12-42-07 AMMal: Sorry kid if I was too harsh, but I have to prepare you for critics out in the real world.

Malone: That’s okay dad. If I’m going to be an artist than I need to hear criticism as well as praise.

Mal: How’d you get to be so wise?

Malone: Mom

Mal: That’s….probably true.

07-15-17_12-42-38 AMMallory: Hey guys I’m still here….hangin’….hahah…you get it cause I’m hanging on the monkey bars? Hahahah I crack myself up sometimes.

07-15-17_12-42-56 AMMalia: What do you mean you’re still here? I was mentioned like once this chapter!

Malone aspiration child Malone completed his first child aspiration! Now he’s working on Rambunctious scamp.

07-15-17_12-52-44 AMMalia: Oh, hey Anthony what’s up?

Anthony: Not much just was in the neighborhood. How are you.

Malia: Alright.

Anthony: That’s cool man.

Believe it or not this guy is a teen. ^-^

07-18-17_8-54-10 PMMal: Another masterpiece for the wall.

Yeah…um…no.

Mal: Hey why not?

Just…um…the style is…yeah…no.

I sold this masterpiece cause it creeps me out.

Mal: Zoom! Zip! Weee!

Malcolm: haha again dada!

Mal: Dad needs a little rest. Not as young as I used to be.

07-18-17_9-14-36 PMPaolo hasn’t been out of the house in a while and he wanted to spend some time with his kids.

Be warned a montage ensues.

Paolo had a grand ole’ time. He even won the hacker challenge and he only had a score of 17!

07-18-17_9-49-48 AMThe kitchen got a little face lift. I’m still not sure what to do about the walls though 😦

07-18-17_9-52-30 PMMalia: The llama and the Princess lived happily ever after. Then end!

Malcolm: Again! Again!

Malia: I think it’s bed time kid.

Malia went by the park to complete one of her milestones.

07-18-17_10-13-12 AM Which she did! Now she has to throw 3 parties and earn 3 silver rewards. Good thing there are some birthdays coming up!

07-18-17_10-13-45 PM Meanwhile…

Mal: Dad I hate exercise, you know this!

Paolo: You need to take better care of yourself! At least for your kids.

Mal: *sigh* Fine, but know that it is under EXTREME dislike!

Paolo: Noted.

07-18-17_10-16-08 AMAnthony: See there! It’s an airplane. When I was a kid I use to think they were alien saucers!

Malia: I wish I could meet an alien.

Anthony: Aliens aren’t real.

Malia: Sure they are, my grandma used to work with some.

Anthony: ^-^

Buff ass woman running by! I was so impressed by her muscles that I just had to take a picture or two.

07-18-17_10-17-40 AM Malia and Anthony were so impressed that they had to high-five each other.

07-18-17_10-18-22 PM So Mal has been doing this job for a while now. He’s level 5 in the arts critic career branch.

Mal: This is a bottle. Say bot-tle.

Malcolm: *gasps* I’ts the holiest of items. The nectar of the gods giver of life!

All Mal hears is goo-ga-bur-ble…..

Mal: Well we’ll keep trying.

07-18-17_10-51-32 AM Awe poor little tyke wore himself out.

07-18-17_11-09-56 AMGarnet: Dad, I’m still sad about mom. I don’t know what to do. How do you get up in the morning?

Paolo: It’s hard sometimes, but I know she wouldn’t want me to wallow in despair. It also helps to have my grandchildren to look after and Pearl’s garden. Can’t let her garden go to waste.

07-18-17_11-19-47 AM Party clothes and plenty of people can mean only one thing! PAR-TAY!

It’s Mallory’s birthday. And she too has inherited the super skinny body type.

Mallory_Teen Mallory received the lazy trait like her dear old dad. And the Nerd Brain aspiration. I kept her in green cause it looked so good on her.

A few hours later it’s Peyton’s birthday; which I forgot 😦 cause I’m bad like that.

Malcolm: Mama danse parie!

Payton: Okay kid I like what you’re thinking! But your gramps is better at dancing; maybe you should have him teach you.

Malcolm: No Mama!

As you can see here I updated Mal and Peyton’s room. I’m very pleased with the way it turned out. I’m not sure though that I captured Peyton’s aesthetic; she’s more rocker than glamor but It’s still a work in progress.

07-22-17_3-57-12 PMMalia: What is this mastery of technology?

And I also gave the family a third bathroom. And as you can see it’s one of the already pre made rooms that I just plunked down, cause it’s a bathroom and I’m lazy.

The entryway also got  a little face lift. It was pretty bare before so I repainted the walls and added a little clutter to make the house feel more lived in.

07-22-17_4-13-34 PM It’s party time. And Malia is throwing her brother a birthday bash!

Garnet: Ruby what are you wearing?

Ruby: I thought it was a costume party!

Garnet didn’t look too pleased that her daughter decided to dress up like a Twi”lek to her cousin’s birthday party.

Zoisite came of course and Malia also invited her friend Kristen.

07-22-17_4-49-59 PM

These two hit it off pretty well. Of course she was the only non family member there.

07-22-17_5-05-58 PM Here’s the birthday boy after a bit of a makeover. He received the good trait along with Chief of Mischief as an aspiration; which I think doesn’t suit him at all. But since I randomized traits this is what I get I guess.

I re-randomized the heir since Malcolm was born, but the randomizer still picked Malone as the heir! So nothing has changed.

07-22-17_5-29-40 PMMalone: Hey buddy! Nice to meet ya.

And here’s a taste of what next chapter is probably going to be like. I want to get Malone’s aspiration done as quickly as possible so he can have an aspiration that fits his personality better.

 

Chapter 2.0: City Living

Last time the Harwood were grieving the loss of the family’s founder Pearl Harwood. Her ghost, however, did pop by for a visit making Paolo really happy. Mal had his adult birthday and Malone grew into a child. Malone was also named heir for generation 2!

10-31-16_10-15-05-amMalia making friends with Lucas Munch. Lucas Munch is another sim that has a special place in my heart. I have an undocumented Legacy where Lucas was the spouse to my first generation heiress. I might even introduce some family members to this save game just for funsies.

10-31-16_12-30-07-pmMalia now needs 3 child friends. In my game I was running a little low on kid sims so I went around to all the “not currently in world” sims combined some households and spawned a few kids so the Harwood children would have some playmates. I have since then installed MC Command Center from Mod the Sims so that should fix and future population issues.

10-31-16_12-30-37-pmA few more of the little tykes.

harwood-house-traits
So it is at this point that I installed the City Living expansion pack and I was excited to test out the Ley-Line house trait to see if Mal and Peyton would have any multiples.

11-03-16_11-56-24-am
Mal: “So how about it babe? Shall we try for one more?”
Peyton: “Well I like the trying part.”

11-03-16_11-59-00-am
And success! I’m really hoping this works.

malia-prank
Malia’s first school prank was successful!

 

Peyton got a little makeover with some City Living stuff. I also gave her a new tattoo. She is super gorgeous! I kind of invasion Peyton as this Rocker chick who didn’t give up her style when she became a mama, she just got a little more sophisticated.

11-03-16_1-33-04-pm
Peyton: “Mallory how many times do I have to tell you not to leave your art project lying around?”

Mallory: “Sorry mom, I was just running to school and I realized I was still carrying the statue and I didn’t want to take it to school so I left it here.”

Peyton: “Jeez kid take a breath, actually better not your brother is carrying a stink cloud around him.”

Malone: “MOM! You didn’t need to point it out. I’ve already had it from the kids at school!”

Peyton: “Well then I hope you learned a very valuable life lesson from this.”

11-03-16_11-34-07-pm
Freshly showered, Malone is ready to take on the second milestone for his aspiration.

11-04-16_8-26-14-am
Malia: “Hey there creepy skeleton dude! My gramps is obsessed with collecting all the sugar skulls. And he just needs one more, will ya help a sister out?”

Skeleton Dude: “Sure there miss. It would be my pleasure to make your gramps dream come true.”

 

Before we can celebrate the fact we now have all the sugar skulls, Mal decided to transform on of these date object into something but utterly failed. Luckily both Mal and Paolo were able to put out the flames before they burned down the house.

11-04-16_8-44-53-am
Paolo: “Finally I can mourn my wife properly now.”

11-04-16_8-49-34-am
Paolo: “Oh Pearl my love, I miss you so much. I know you are looking down on us, but I can’t wait to be by your side once more.”

11-04-16_8-51-52-am
Mal: “Dad I know you miss mom, I do too, but I hope you aren’t planning to leave us anytime soon. I still need you here!”

Paolo: “Thanks son. I don’t plan on leaving if I can help it. I do want to meet that new grandkid of mine.”

11-04-16_9-21-39-am
Mal takes his wife out on the town on another date. Mal is so close to completing his second aspiration I think I can finish it before the new baby arrives!

11-04-16_9-47-23-am
Speaking of almost finishing an aspiration, Mallory just needs to reach level 10 of the creativity skill and she will be done with Artistic Prodigy. I also gave the kids a small makeover to their room.

11-04-16_10-09-45-am
Mal: “Oh I can’t wait to meet you!”

Peyton: “I can’t wait to have this nooboo out of me! I have to pee like every 5 seconds!”

 

Mal has finally compleated his second aspiration! I don’t remember if I picked a third one for him. And Lucas Munch in the background cheering the couple on!

malias-b-day
So I took the family to San Myshuno to celebrate Malia’s birthday. However I wasn’t able to put birthday candles on the cake 😥

 

Despite this little set back the family had a lovely time at the Spice Market. Malia got to show off her mad b-ball skills. And Mallory, spending quality time with her grandpa helped her finish her aspiration!

 

Back at home Malia blew out her candles! And the game gave her another tomboy look for her teen years so I’m keeping with the theme.

69faff88-c055-4d67-a7d4-84f738578b68
Malia received the Vegetarian trait. And she is a Party Animal. I think Malia’s types of parties are the sports kind.

11-04-16_12-53-37-pm
Malia grew up into an ultra skinny body that she doesn’t share with either of her parents. So under the careful mentorship of her grandfather she begins her training to bulk up a little bit.

11-04-16_12-57-01-pm
I know we haven’t seen much of Malone this chapter, but he is around doing artsy things.

11-04-16_1-11-30-pm
Peyton: “It’s time ya’ll, time to pop this munchkin out!”

11-04-16_1-15-47 PM.pngFourth kid in and Mal is pretty chill about the whole birthing process.

Mal: Hey hospital food ain’t so bad.

01-08-17_10-15-27 PMWelcome Malcolm Harwood to the family! Unfortunately their little experiment didn’t work. Mal and Payton only had one child. But I think that’s for the best.

 

Chapter 1.6: The Challenge of Moving on

Last time Pearl got into some shenanigans at work which she instantly regretted. Malia had her child birthday, and Peyton gave birth to another girl Mallory. We had to say goodbye to the founder of the Harwood family Pearl. And Mal and Peyton are expecting their third child.

10-05-16_12-06-25-amPaolo is still collecting sugar skulls. It helps him bury his grief.

10-05-16_12-07-27-amAlexander Goth: “I feel a disturbance in the force.”

No, it’s just Paolo being a creeper.

Paolo: “This is a stick up! GIVE.ME.ALL.OF.THE.SUGAR.SKULLS!”

Alex: “Dude you need to back up. But I will give you one to leave me the F alone!”

Baby Mallory is adored by all.

10-05-16_8-16-47-pmHowever Paolo isn’t easily distracted by sugar skulls or his granddaughters. Paolo waters his beloved wife’s garden with his tears of grief.

10-05-16_8-36-31-pmPaolo needed to get out of the house so he gathered his workout club.

10-05-16_8-37-54-pmPaolo: “Hey there daughter of mine, fancy joining my work out group?”

Garnet: “Dad, why are you talking like a weirdo?”

Paolo: “Why, I have no notion of what you speak of.”

Garnet: *sighs heavily* “Fine if I will join your club if you stop talking like you’re in a bad Dickens play.”

10-05-16_8-41-31-pmMadelyn: “Hey Paolo! I’d like to join your group too! The Grim Reaper working out next to me has given me a new appreciation for healthy living.”

Grim Reaper: “Can’t a guy work out without everybody thinking they’re going to die? I’d just like to go somewhere where people aren’t running away from me in terror.”#GrimProblems.”Although Madelyn are you getting enough to eat cause you’re looking a little skinny.”

10-05-16_8-59-54-pmBack at home it’s Mallory’s birthday!

dfa4d116-df66-4f8b-92a2-1278046cffc2Here she is after a little makeover. I’m so happy that she has her dad’s eye color! She has the insider trait just like her mom.

10-05-16_9-17-17-pmMallory is already getting started on her aspiration.

10-05-16_9-24-24-pmI’m trying to call the aliens just to see what happens but so far no luck. This is the second time I’ve used this thing; maybe third time’s the charm?

10-05-16_9-48-00-pmWe’re getting close guys! Just one more sugar skull!

10-05-16_10-15-45-pmThese two are super adorable! I know I say that about almost all my sims, but what can i say? I’m biased.

10-05-16_10-17-35-pmMallory is getting stuff done while Malia tries to hold it together long enough to make it to the toilet.

Malia: “Hay! Don’t document this part! Do you want me to be ridiculed at school?”

10-05-16_10-18-37-pmWhat’s this? A floating computer can mean only one thing…

10-05-16_10-19-10-pmPearl came for a visit! Our first ghost of the legacy!

Pearl: “Damn straight.”

10-05-16_10-28-08-pmPaolo: *squees with joy* “Oh yay! My favorite person is back!”

Pearl: “I know, I know, you can’t live without me.”

Paolo: “I can’t, I really can’t”

10-05-16_10-32-45-pmPaolo: “Nothing to see here…move along now!”

10-05-16_11-00-26-pmLove is all around. Paolo doesn’t even notice that his daughter-in-law is barely in any clothing at all or that his son is flirting with her. Paolo’s got the post woohoo face going on.

Mal took his lovely wife on a date for one of his aspiration milestones. I forget where he is at the moment but he is close, I think, to completing his aspiration.

10-05-16_11-22-13-pmRight after their date Peyton goes into labor. And like any good husband, Mal, eats chocolate in front of his laboring wife.

10-05-16_11-23-55-pmWelcome Malone into the Harwood family. The first boy this generation.

10-05-16_11-33-04-pmPaolo is having a man to man moment with his grandson.

10-05-16_11-33-33-pmI’m so bad at taking notes, but Peyton has finished her aspiration Leader of the Pack and is now working on Joke Star. She is also working in the entertainment career.

Mallory: “Run away Mr. Triceratop! The T-Rex wants to eat you!”

Mr. Triceratop: “Eeeeep!”

As Mr. Triceratop runs away from the T-Rex he head buts her in his terror piercing poor Mallory in the eye.

Mallory: “Oh! Ow….these horns are way to sharp for children’s toys.”

10-06-16_11-27-44-amGarnet: “Hey dad, how are you doing? I know mom’s death hit you pretty hard.”

Paolo: “Oh well it’s hard not having her here all the time, but ever since she visited me the other night It’s a little easier knowing that a part of her is still out there somewhere.”

Garnet: “Oh dad….mom visited you?”
Paolo: “Well her ghost did….I’m not crazy you know.”
Garnet: “Okay” *not quite sure she believes him*

Just so you know everyone in the Harwood house hold was extremely distraught when Pearl died. Peyton not as much because they didn’t really spend a whole lot of time together. I’m just a bad simmer and didn’t take a whole lot of pictures of the Harwoods grief. 😥

10-06-16_11-35-03-amMal Painted a much better portrait of Peyton so now we can replace that other one.

Mal: “Hey! That other one was a masterpiece! But I do agree this one is much better; look at the colors and how they pop! And this one is another masterpiece!”

I think at this point Mal is a level 10 painter.

10-06-16_11-44-47-amPaolo helps the girls with there homework Mallory first then Malia. And on a side note I really adore Paolo he will have a special place in my heart and I’m going to be really bummed when he goes, probably more so than Pearl is that a bad thing to say?

Paolo: “Yes, yes it is….although It’s good to know I’ll be missed, but I’m still here you know!”

The girls go to the park to work on their aspirations. Mallory I believe is working on her third milestone and just needs to reach level 10 in creativity and draw 5 different drawings.

Malia by the way has completed Rambunctious Scamp and is now working on  Social Butterfly.

10-06-16_12-42-34-pmPeople gathering and new kitchen setup (which I’m going to have to redo cause I’m not 100% happy with.) can only mean one thing….

A PARTY!

Mal’s adult birthday party to be exact and it’s also Malone’s birthday!

It was a lovely party and all the Harwoods came to wish Mal good luck in his full adult years.

10-06-16_1-02-30-pmIt is Malone’s turn for his birthday and he popped out on the bassinet if fairly decent clothes, but they don’t really fit his personality so off to CAS with you!

ae686bff-9a00-4bd5-9db6-297c3b42ec8fAnd here is Mr. Malone. I kind of imagine him to be one of those creative cool kids, but not a douche. And his aspiration actually matches his trait which is always a bonus!

 

the-3-mals-2

Here are our three kiddos for the second generation of the Harwood legacy. And the heir is MALONE! I was hoping for a girl this generation but honestly I would have been happy with either one of them.

So this is where I’ll end for now, I have about a chapter left until I’m all caught up to game play. I haven’t played the Harwoods in like three months so I’m super excited to be almost caught up! 😀

Chapter 1.5: Family

Hey I’m back! Sorry it’s been a while. It’s been a little crazy with the holidays coming up and I had to take a certification exam for work so I was studying for that. But now I have some time….so here we go!

1b37f85b-131d-444a-9544-f7261ef11500

Last time on the Harwoods Peyton was working on her aspiration and she is close to completing it….I think. Mal has been painting up a storm. And both Peyton and Mal are proud parents of baby Malia. The Harwoods were able to remodel their home after a series of promotions from Pearl. Paolo retired from the bodybuilder career and Kunzite, the youngest of the first generation, moved out with His wife Madelyn and daughter Zoisite.

 

10-05-16_1-21-12-amPaolo: “Well hello there neighbors! What a nice day we are having today. And might I add what lovely makeup you all have on. Even you sir very bold choice!”

Lucas: “Well we are in the midst of the day of the dead celebrations…so it’s not really makeup more like a costume choice.”

Paolo: “Whatever helps you sleep at night son.”

Lucas: “…Uh…here man just take this.” *Lucas quickly hands Paolo a sugar skull a skulks off.

10-05-16_1-23-17-amBetween Paolo and Mal the Harwoods now have 5 sugar skulls. We’re halfway there folks.

10-05-16_1-26-26-amPeyton: “Hey mom how are things?”

Janae Scales: “Oh you know just seeing how my daughter is and I want to meet my grandbaby. You know Peyton I’m to young to be a grandma so I want to be called Nonnie.”

Peyton’s mom is still a Young Adult which is a little weird.

10-05-16_1-28-44-amAnd this is Peyton’s younger brother Korbin.

10-05-16_1-30-36-amJanae: “So I was out on a date the other day and they guy wanted to come back to my place, but of course I could have none of that. I explained to the guy I have a teenage son and he was totally surprised of course. He said “you’re way too young to have a kid and I was like I know but I do.”

Korbin: “Kill me now!”

10-05-16_1-42-23-amSome father and daughter bonding time.

10-05-16_1-52-04-amAnother masterpiece for Mal here. I can remember if I mentioned Mal got a job in the painter career. Well Mal got a job in the Painter career.

10-05-16_2-01-39-amPeyton has got in on the action. However, I think she received a sugar skull they already have 😦

10-05-16_3-03-10-pmAt work Pearl had to freeze a few tourists. But she quickly chiseled this poor guy to freedom.

10-05-16_3-05-37-pmPearl: So sorry I froze you! It was in the pursuit of science! Don’t worry the blue will go away soon.”

10-05-16_3-05-56-pmPearl: “On further inspection your nose is rather large…not the largest I have seen mind you, but we can definitely fix it for you at the science lab if you want. Free of cost of corse!”

Blue Man: “I think I’m going to leave now.”

10-05-16_3-14-01-pmPearl: “Oh honey I had the most stressful day at work.”

Paolo: “I’m sorry to hear that my love.”

Pearl: “But I did get a promotion to Ufologist. So it wasn’t all bad.”

10-05-16_3-14-49-pmLast picture of Malia as a baby because it’s her birthday today!

10-05-16_3-16-45-pmShe too aged into a bit of a tomboy like her cousins Ruby and Zoisite.

10-05-16_3-27-27-pmI wanted to keep the tomboy look so she kept most of the clothes she aged into and still kept with the short hair but found a style that looked better on her. Malia is a Goofball and is a Rambunctious Scamp. So sort of the class clown but sporty as well.

As soon as Malia left her parents bedroom her parents decided it was time for some quality adult alone time. In the kids bedroom closet of course.

10-05-16_3-33-04-pmThus resulting in addition to the family.

10-05-16_3-59-03-pmAnd poor Chester didn’t last long. It was only last chapter that he was introduced. I think it will be a while til I grow another cow plant.

10-05-16_4-19-40-pmMalia: “Shhh…don’t tell my parents that I’m using their closet as headquarters for my space adventure!”

Um…okay then I won’t tell you what they were doing in your closet.

Malia: “What were they doing in my closet? Were they playing cops and robbers? Cause I heard noises….”

My lips are sealed.

10-05-16_4-52-27-pmI got the family a popcorn maker which was a mistake because now all they eat is popcorn.

Malia goes to the park to make some friends and hangs out with her cousin Zoisite. She also completed her first milestone.

10-05-16_5-35-05-pmMalia is working on her second milestone and I was able to add wallpaper to the new focus room.

10-05-16_5-55-05-pmMal took Peyton out on a date. I think at this point he is on Milestone 3 or 4 I can’t remember 😦

Anyways they had a lovely time being all lovey dovey.

10-05-16_6-02-00-pmMalia: “The view from up here is spectacular!”

I just love her; she is so cute!

10-05-16_6-21-20-pmPaolo still going after those sugar skulls. I keep wanting to type crystal skull…must.stop!

10-05-16_6-27-48-pmAnother masterpiece to add to the wall. Although this one is my least favorite.

10-05-16_6-33-24-pmNow this is how it should be. Of course he still goes into the pre-parental panic, but this is a nice spontaneous moment.

10-05-16_6-35-58-pmMal comes into the labor room does gets his panic on and then….

10-05-16_6-36-25-pmGoes out of the room and looks through the doors

Mal: ” Is she done yet?”

10-05-16_6-38-56-pmWelcome baby girl Mallory to the family! This makes the fourth girl born to the Harwoods this generation. We have Ruby, Zoisite, Malia, and Mallory.

And then Peyton and Mal come home to this…

Our founder Pearl Harwood has passed 😦

She didn’t get to complete her aspiration as a freelance botanist. But she married Paolo, the love of her life, and had three children and leaves behind four beautiful granddaughters.

10-05-16_6-44-22-pmThe household was very distraught over the loss of Pearl.

10-05-16_6-46-03-pmEspecially Paolo who fell down to his knees giving great wailing sobs of despair.

10-05-16_7-04-56-pmI built the family Mausoleum and after I took this picture I took the door out so my sims wouldn’t spend all their time crying over lost relatives.

10-05-16_7-29-19-pmI will leave you with the happy news that Peyton and Mal are expecting their third child! 🙂 ❤

Chapter 1.4: New…

Last time the Harwoods had many celebrations: Kunzite had his YA birthday and Garnet, Malachite, and Kunzite all go married to their respective partners. Garnet gave birth to daughter Ruby and then she along with Myron and Ruby moved out of the Legacy house.

10-03-16_11-02-10-pmThese two are super cute. I believe this picture was taken with the crystal clear digital camera.

10-03-16_10-52-48-pmSince Peyton’s aspiration is Leader of the Pack I’m not going to give her a job until she completes her aspiration. So until then she is going to write some novels to help with the household funds.

10-04-16_1-01-26-pmAnd speaking of her aspiration here she is inviting the Carefree club over to complete her first Milestone.

10-04-16_1-03-39-pmOh hey we have a new Cow plant! Lets call him Chester.

10-04-16_10-41-13-amI’m so ready to crush this challenge!

10-03-16_11-01-20-pmI forget why Madelyne was doing this, but here it is for your viewing pleasure.

I got a pop up saying that Paolo’s days are numbered and I was shocked. He has the long lived trait from completing his bodybuilder aspiration, but just in case I had him say goodbye to his family.

10-04-16_11-14-18-amMal: “So Ms. Slaughter I was wondering if I could persuade you to give me a sugar skull.”

Christine Slaughter: “Sure kid, I like your style.”

10-04-16_11-15-41-amI believe this little guy is called Jeff.

10-04-16_11-23-31-amMal: *victory dance* “Woooo! One down only nine more to go!”

10-04-16_11-32-04-amThe ladies of the house gabbing about legacy life.

10-04-16_11-52-39-amThis is Mal’s first masterpiece which I’ve kept, however it went straight into the family inventory until they can remodel their house.

 

10-04-16_12-15-41-pmPoor Peyton sick and pregnant. Luckily she has a cure to what ails her.

10-04-16_12-31-47-pmI’ll keep this portrait until Mal can do a better one.

Mal: “Hey I’ll have you know this is a masterpiece!”

And it looks like Mal is sporting the same sickness as his wife.

10-04-16_12-36-16-pmThese two are still very much in love. Full friendship and romance bars and I honestly don’t have to do much they run mostly on autonomy.

10-04-16_12-37-03-pmPaolo: “Hi…yes I would like to retire. I would like to enjoy my time with my family.”

Paolo was sill level 6 I think in the bodybuilder career and since he completed his aspiration I didn’t see the need for him to continue working. Especially since Pearl is well paid and Mal makes quite a bit selling paintings.

10-04-16_12-43-00-pmAnother Club outing for Peyton. I believe she has completed Milestone 2 at this point. I didn’t take any notes on her aspiration as I already did it for Mal, but spoiler alert *she does eventually complete it. *

10-04-16_12-46-41-pmAnd it’s go time!

Mal: “Oh…it’s really happening!”

Peyton: “You knew it was happening.”

Mal: “Well yes but it’s like happening NOW!”

10-04-16_12-47-08-pmMal: “I just have to pee real quick!”

10-04-16_12-49-16-pmAnd like a good father to be he came and freaked out in the hospital room as is proper. Of course I would be freaking out if a doctor took out my significant other’s heart out in front of me.

10-04-16_12-53-01-pmEveryone meet little Malia Harwood. So the naming theme this generation are names that start with Mal.

10-04-16_12-56-03-pmThe club gathering was still going strong when Peyton and Mal came back from the hospital with their little nooboo. So Peyton sent them away so she could have some quiet time.

10-04-16_1-13-15-pmThe quiet didn’t last long as a few hours later Madelyn went into labor.

10-04-16_1-23-56-pmAnd Madelyne and Kunzite welcomed a little girl Zoisite Harwood.

10-04-16_1-26-58-pmAnd as with Ruby, Zoisite grew into a tomboy.

10-04-16_1-32-08-pmAnd here she is. I tried keeping the tomboy look. She gained the goofball trait.

10-04-16_9-18-21-pmI probably should have waited till the morning to send them on their way but I was a little impatient as I want to remodel the house.

10-04-16_11-55-46-pmAnd here is what the outside of their new home looks like. I haven’t taken any “tour” pictures of the inside as the house isn’t completed. I still want to add some rooms and even a basement. Also I will repaint the outside, everything is just so grey 😦

So I will leave you here for now readers.

Chapter 1.3: Here Comes The…

3e0ef20a-1a0f-4936-8dfd-ad75b4d510c0

Last time there were multiple birthdays. Malachite finished his Leader of the Pack aspiration and is now working towards Soulmate. Both Garnet and Malachite grew up their significant other; in Garnet’s case her hopeful significant other. Pearl tried calling the aliens but none have shown up yet (keep your fingers crossed). Paolo turned into an elder and Pearl grew a cowplant!

09-12-16_11-26-10-amLet’s start off the chapter with these two adorable sims. Malachite asked Peyton on a date to celebrate both of their birthdays.

Oh and I did give Mal a tattoo. I figured I’d give one to all the heirs.

09-12-16_11-30-59-amMal:” So I know this probably isn’t much of a surprise, since we are promised to each other and all, but would you like to share the rest of your life with me?”

Peyton: “Well…”

09-12-16_11-31-12-amPeyton: ” …the ring is of a lovely quality. Of course I say yes! Love you forever and always. I mean my jealousy trait might be hard to deal with but as long as you don’t cheat I think we will be fine.”

09-12-16_11-33-58-amBack at home things got awkward.

Paolo: “I’ve managed to live most of my life without too many awkward occurrences happening. Why does the string of luck have to run out now that I’m in my twilight years?”

09-12-16_8-33-53-amMal: “I’ll call this When I’m board I’ll draw fruit.”

I haven’t gotten Mal a job yet because I haven’t decided on what career he should take so in the mean time he’s painting to help out the family income.

Garnet and Myron have a very successful date at the ruins.

09-12-16_1-08-43-pmGarnet invited Myron to skinny dip in the ruins watering hole.

Myron: ” Okay I’ll take a dip but then I’m getting right out ’cause the water doesn’t look all that sanitary.”

Garnet: “Oh come on live a little My.”

Myron:”I’m living plenty what with woohoo in the bushes , which by the way I think I have a twig in my pants, and now I’m taking a dip in something that looks like it carries the plague.”

09-12-16_1-10-00-pmMyron: “Garnet why are you in the bushes…oh…are you…”
Garnet: “Proposing? Yes although I do admit I could have picked a better spot. Myron, though you are squeamish,which annoys me, I also love you for it. I know how much you care for my health and happiness. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. What do you say?”

09-12-16_1-10-18-pmMyron: “Yes of course. Though your sense of adventure might lead me to an early grave I can’t imagine my life without you.”

09-12-16_1-20-25-pmBack at the house Garnet learns that she is expecting a little nooboo. And she looks absolutely smug about it.

09-12-16_1-20-47-pmGarnet: “Guess what Honey?! We’re having a baby!”

Myron: “Um…I’m not quite sure how I should feel about this, but I’ll go with mostly happy! Just promise we won’t have too many kids they’re rather unsanitary.”

Garnet: “You do realize that the whole process of making kids is unsanitary.”

Myron: *blushes* “But that part is fun…so I don’t mind it so much.”

09-12-16_9-05-48-pmGarnet wished for an arch so I obliged her. Garnet and Myron had a quick elopement. I really dread having parties, both IRL and ingame, and I also wanted an heir to have the first wedding party. But that doesn’t mean I can’t dress Garnet in a pretty dress.

09-12-16_9-29-36-pmMyron is the first to officially meet our first cow plant! It was just a little seedling this morning, but now look at her! I think I will name her Betsy. Although I wish your sims could actually name their cow plants in the game.

09-12-16_9-37-31-pmI finally broke down and got a computer.

09-12-16_9-14-26-pmPearl is still hard at work in the science career. If the family didn’t need the money I would have her quit a focus on her gardening skill, because that’s all she needs to complete her aspiration.

09-12-16_9-46-38-pmBack on the home front Garnet isn’t having fun with her pregnancy. Although to be perfectly honest she’s generally pretty happy except for morning sickness.

09-12-16_9-54-55-pmGarnet spends her time leveling up in the violin skill for her aspiration.

Pearl and Mal seem to be enjoying the tunes she’s putting out even though she is a level 4. It must be because she is a creative sim.

09-12-16_10-03-35-pmAnd of course Garnet isn’t going to let her pregnancy stop her from enjoying a good workout.

09-12-16_10-26-00-pmPearl’s birthday came around and I let it slip by me. I’ve been so focused on getting Mal and Garnet’s relationships and aspirations in order that I forgot about poor Pearl :(.

09-12-16_11-07-17-pmMyron: ” Oooooohhhhh…Cake. Don’t mind if I do!”

09-12-16_11-07-43-pmMyron: “Ok Betsy you win; let’s not do this again shall we?”

Betsy *gives Myron a hard glare*

09-12-16_10-44-22-pmPearl: “Hmmm…I wonder what this could be?”

09-12-16_10-48-05-pmGarnet: “I wonder what that burning smell could be?”

09-12-16_10-48-14-pmGarnet: “Oh.My.Plumbob!”

I was super nervous when the fire broke out but Garnet immediately brought out the fire extinguisher and put out the fire like a boss.

09-12-16_11-03-48-pmMal asked Peyton out on a date, but first I went into manage worlds and gave her a makeover.

09-12-16_11-24-26-pmPretty soon it’s time for Garnet to pop out this baby. And of course Myron is having a major melt down.

Myron: “No! I’m not ready to be a father! I need a snack…low blood sugar and all.”

09-12-16_11-29-10-pmDue to Myron not being able to handle his sh*t, Garnet gave birth to their daughter Ruby all by herself.

09-12-16_11-29-53-pmMyron: “I sense that my child is born, this makes me happy.”

09-12-16_11-30-13-pmGarnet: ” Don’t worry honey, your father is just a little squeamish but he loves you very much.”

09-12-16_11-37-13-pmBack at home Garnet ages Ruby up. Ruby ages up into the exact hair and clothing as Garnet did, it’s a bit erie.

09-12-16_11-48-04-pmRuby rolled the Geek trait with the artistic prodigy aspiration. She has her mother and grandmother’s eye color. And after she aged up her and her parents moved out of the legacy house. I will miss having Garnet around, but I’m excited to see Mal and Peyton’s kids!

09-13-16_11-52-24-amIts official the first generation are adults now! And now we can pave the way for generation two, although technically Ruby is the first of generation two.

Kunzite received the athletic trait. His other traits are Cheerful and Goofball.

09-12-16_12-36-21-pmMal invited Peyton over and they have become best friends which takes care of one milestone for his aspiration. It makes me a little sad that he won’t be best friends with Garnet any more, but it’s only right that he’s best friends with his future wife.

And speaking of future wife let’s make it official. Family and friends gathered around to witness the couple get married.

09-13-16_12-20-00-pmMal: ” Now that the guests have gone why don’t we celebrate!”

Peyton: “Darling just promise to leave the bow tie on!”

09-13-16_12-23-07-pmThis pose can only mean one thing!

09-13-16_12-24-50-pmPeyton: “Honey I have something important to tell you so can you please get your hand out of my crotch area!”

Mal: “Sorry honey, what is it.”

Peyton: “Well we’re going to be parents!”

Mal: “Are you sure….I mean yay?”

09-13-16_12-26-37-pmMal: “Well I am a total stud after all.”

Madelyn Hartley comes over and she and Kunzite become best friends. We also give her a quick birthday.

Kunzite waists no time wooing his love. And they quickly become engaged.

Madelyn: “Get your sexy but in there!”

Kunzite: “Yes ma’am!”

09-13-16_12-47-41-pmAnd a quick elopement.

09-13-16_12-51-12-pmAnd another nooboo is on its way! I will skip the pictures where Madelyn tells Kunzite about their impending parenthood as Kunzite has the same reaction Mal and Myron had. 09-13-16_11-56-04-amPoor Betsy didn’t survive the chapter. These cow plants sure don’t last very long. Anyway sorry for rushing the end a bit but I’m really excited to start the second generation!

Chapter 1.2: We’re All Mad for Birthdays Here!

Last time on the Harwoods Pearl used her sim ray to make subpar objects into slightly less subpar objects and almost burned the house down. Kunzite is now a teen and a Public Enemy to boot. Mal is the leader of the Carefree club and got himself a girlfriend. Garnet is in the babysitting career and Paolo is still working on getting to level 10 in the bodybuilder career.

08-31-16_9-05-06-pmI’ll start off this chapter with the all exciting news that the Harwoods have a better stove than they did before! I know, I know this is what you all came here for.

08-31-16_9-08-45-pmGarnet is as much of a gym rat as her father. I’m going to try and get Garnet as buff as possible. Which probably isn’t very much on her thin frame.

08-31-16_9-38-06-pmPearl: “Are you sure it’s wise to set a beacon to call aliens here. *whispers* What if they are bad aliens and want to probe us all?”

Well it’ll be an experience you won’t forget!

I’ve used the satellite to call the aliens twice and have yet to see one.

08-31-16_9-48-47-pmThis daily task of mentoring sims for the athletic career is a real pain. But since Paolo completed his bodybuilder aspiration he can focus more on his career.

08-31-16_10-02-59-pmWhen Paolo isn’t mentoring sims he is upgrading objects around the house.

08-31-16_10-46-03-pmPearl was promoted to Tech. Innovator and Paolo was also promoted to Professional Bodybuilder, so I was able to put in the second bathroom and expanded the teens bedroom as well as the front room.

I wish I could find exercise fun like these two.

08-31-16_11-09-25-pmPaolo invited Don over to mentor him, but when Don showed up he kicked over the trash can. I guess he wasn’t in a very good mood.

08-31-16_11-10-08-pmPaolo had to show dominance over Don by kicking his but in a fight. It wasn’t a malicious fight just something athletic sims can do at a certain level.

08-31-16_11-11-50-pmAfter showing Don who’s boss Paolo continued to torture Don by mentoring him.

09-03-16_8-29-16-amThis bald beauty is Myron Hartley all grown up. Garnet learns he is Creative and Cheerful. He will fit nicely into this family I think.

09-03-16_8-39-13-amI forget why but somehow Mal became energized and he wanted to text his girlfriend.

09-03-16_8-44-11-amAnd she invited him to the gym. Probably the last place he wants to be. However he flirts with her mercilessly and they don’t end up going inside.

Mal: “So I know we are still teens and maybe too young to promise ourselves to each other, and we don’t know what our third traits will be, but I’m willing to take that gamble if you are.”

*here’s me crossing my fingers that Peyton doesn’t roll hates children for her third trait*

Peyton: “Oh babe there is no one else in this world I’d rather gamble with.”

09-11-16_9-38-47-pm

Kunzite invites Madelyn to the park to get to know each other better. They are just friends at this stage.

09-11-16_9-23-05-pmPaolo: “Whoohoo we get to Whoohoo!”

These two are still very much in love.  And Paolo is almost an elder now.

09-12-16_7-55-26-amMal has finally reached level 5 of charisma and is now on the final tier of his aspiration. And he already completed earn 1000 club points so all he needs is 8 members in his club.

This aspiration is easier than I thought It would be. 🙂

‘ 09-12-16_8-02-34-amMal: “Myron do you want to be in my club? It’s super fun! We play chess and read n’stuff.”

Myron: “It actually sounds kind of boring.”

Mal: “My sister’s in the club.”

Myron: “Well why didn’t you say so to begin with? Of course I’ll join if she’s in the club.”

Mal: “Right now all I need is one more sim to join my cause.”

Myron: “Club….you mean join your club.”

Mal: “Yes…that’s exactly what I mean.”

09-12-16_9-05-09-am

Kunzite being friends with Madelyn invites her over so Mal can ask her to join the club. Which she does! Now Malachite has finished his aspiration, and before becoming an adult to boot! His next aspiration is Soulmate.

Alright ladies and gents we finally have a cowplant! My first ever in the sims 4! And I’ve had this game ever since it came out 😦

09-12-16_8-06-10-amAnd Paolo had his elder birthday by himself. I felt so bad, but I was focused on everyone else I completely forgot he was becoming an elder 😥

09-12-16_8-43-11-amHowever it is the twins birthday as well so Mal her is making a cake for himself and his sister. This is actually the third cake mad. Pearl made two but sims kept eating the cakes before I could put candles on them.

09-12-16_8-49-28-amHowever the third time’s the charm. Mal is up first with Peyton singing him into adulthood.

09-12-16_8-51-51-amAnd Next up is Garnet. Peyton really gets into the spirit of things.

09-12-16_8-52-25-amDat ass ‘tho. I don’t remember either of her parents having a sizable rear end, but Mal also has been gifted with a big booty so they must get it from somewhere.

Malachite’s third trait is  dance machine which is interesting because he is lazy, but I guess that’s Paolo’s influence sneaking in there. His other two traits are Lazy and Creative.

And Garnet’s third trait is Cheerful. Her other traits are Creative and Active. 09-12-16_8-54-06 AM.pngAnd since Peyton was here I had her age up as well. Her third trait is Insider.

09-12-16_11-34-42-amAwwww look at this little guy! Isn’t he cute?

The next day Garnet invites Myron over and surprises him with a birthday of his own.

09-12-16_12-58-49-pmLook how handsome he is! Myron’s third trait is squeamish. I think I will leave you here. This sure was a chapter full of birthdays!

Will Garnet find love with Myron? Can Kunzite take his friendship with Madelyn to the next level? And will their be a wedding next time?

 

Chapter 1.1: Carefree and Smitten

Welcome Back readers. Last time many skilling events were going on.The twins finished their child aspirations (Garnet even completed 2), and then they had their teen birthday. Malachite received the Lazy trait, which Paolo was not happy with, and Garnet received the Active trait. Pearl had her adult birthday she also froze a co-worker with the freeze ray.

08-24-16_12-57-34 AMThe Harwoods were able to afford a house finally. I downloaded this house from the gallery. The house was created by ruthless_kk.

So I did something stupid when putting the house on the lot. I only put a few things in the family inventory and then I though well the house comes with furniture so I stopped putting things in the inventory and plopped the house on the lot. Well the Harwoods couldn’t afford the house with the furniture and unlike a smart person I continued with the download thinking the family could purchase the rest. Well they had to purchase the cheapest beds, and I had to sell the couch. And Pearl’s garden also got deleted so she has to start anew, but luckily she had a lot of her plants in her inventory so she doesn’t have to start from scratch.

08-24-16_1-06-45 PMI however did save the punching bag.

Garnet: “Dad makes this look so easy!”

Garnet autonomously went to start working out. Active sims, gotta love’em.

08-24-16_1-09-34 PMPearl: *sighs heavily* “You mean I have to start all over again?!”

Well at least now you have pots.

Pearl: “That doesn’t make it any better!”

08-24-16_1-13-32 AMPearl: “Hey Alice! You wanna try this serum out?”

Alice: “Sure!” *swipes the bottle out of Pearl’s hands.

Pearl: “Um…don’t you want to know what it is first?”

Alice: “Man this thing tastes really good!”

I can’t remember which serum this is but I think it’s the one that makes a sim flirty.

08-24-16_1-21-16 AMPaolo: “Hey honey how was work?”

Pearl: “It was great. I got a promotion to Serum Sequencer.”

Paolo: “That’s great. Wanna go celebrate?”

Pearl: “Can I take a rain check on that? I just really want to try out my ray gun!”

Paolo: “What? Seriously?”

Pearl continued to celebrate by turning the refrigerator into a shower. And since the shower was a better quality than the one they had previously I kept it and sold the old one.

Since turning the refrigerator into a shower was such a success Pearl decides to transform the entire kitchen. However we lost the stove and counter and ended up with this toad which ended up as a pile of ash.

Pearl: “Ops! Did I do that?”

08-24-16_2-03-44 AMMal: “Garnet why are taking a selfie! Mom almost burned down the house, we lost the kitchen, and we’re doing trigonometry!”

Garnet: “Quit being a drama llama Mal. Besides mom was able to by another refrigerator so not all is lost. And this selfie is to mark that I finished my trig! My loyal followers deserve to know I rock!”

Mal: *mumbles* “Damn over achiever!”

08-24-16_2-12-23 AMWith this punch Paolo has completed his bodybuilder aspiration! He now has the Fabulous Wealthy aspiration.

Since Paolo has finished his aspiration he now can concentrate on his career. Also Alexander Goth is buff!

08-24-16_10-41-07 PMWith Pearl’s promotion they were able to repurchase a new Easel. This painting is so adorable and I wished I kept it! 😦 Also they were able to buy another cheep stove.

08-24-16_10-45-19 PMPearl also got this handy dandy chemistry lab. For a second I thought about selling it, but I didn’t.

I finally put a wishing well in Magnolia Blossom park.

Malachite: ” Oh wise and benevolent wishing well, please grant me true love.”

Wishing well: “Bah, your measly contribution of §200 is insulting! You are cursed for your insolence!”

Needless to say Malachite was cursed for a day. All of his flirting attempts would go no where.

08-24-16_11-41-13 PMMal: “Hey Alice, how has your day been so far?”

Alice: “I married.”

Mal: “Um…I wasn’t trying to flirt.”

Alice: *affronted* “Why not?! Whats wrong with me?!”

Mal: “Um…you’re married?”

08-24-16_12-29-20 PMMalachite started a club called Carefree where teens get together and do their homework, have friendly interactions, eat, read, and play chess. And he bought a perk which completes the first tier of the leader of the pack aspiration.

Garnet: “Hey Isiah how’s it going?”

Isiah: ” You’re looking good”

Garnet: *blushes*

Garnet finds out that Isiah teen trait is romantic. Minkz is in the background is a geek.

08-24-16_12-40-59 PMMultitasking at its best. By the end of this gathering Mal has finished tier 2!

Back at home Pearl transforms the beds util they are a slightly better quality, I was a little nervous of starting another fire so I didn’t have Pearl try too many times in a row.

08-24-16_10-55-22 PMHappy Birthday Kunzite!

Kunzite: “I wish to be awesome!08-24-16_10-55-37 PMMal: “Whoooooo! It’ll be hard to be more awesome than me, but give it your best bro!”

56cb6a4d-d12a-4fc4-922e-ce85fdffa24aKunzite got the Public Enemy aspiration which doesn’t fit his personality. The only way I can justify it is he’s more of a Prankster rather than anything too malicious.

08-25-16_12-07-33 AMGarnet: “Sorry I had to work on your birthday Kunzite.”

Kunzite: “Oh it’s alright sis. Mal had some of his club members at my party so that was pretty cool. Also Mal invited me to the club so we can spend more time together!”

Garnet is in the Nanny career and she is at level 2 already. She is such an over achiever.

Garnet: “Hey whats wrong with success?!”

08-31-16_4-29-11 PMThe next day Mal took his club to the park. Mal needs to talk to one more club member about his club in order to fulfill one of the objectives in tier 3 of his aspiration. Which he does by inviting this lovely lady Peyton Scales to the club. Now all he needs to do to complete tier 3 is to get level 5 in charisma.

08-31-16_4-33-47 PMThese two hit it off and are soon friends, with a bonus of looking super cute. Mal learns that Peyton is a slob and jealous.

08-31-16_4-41-32 PMGarnet wasn’t having any luck on her end though. She tried putting the moves on Isiah, but he wasn’t too into it.

Garnet: “I think I’ll crawl into a hole and die I’m so embarrassed.”

Isiah: “Sorry Garnet. It’s just we’ve been friends for so long I just don’t think I can ruin that.”

08-31-16_4-54-17 PMMal invites Peyton over and they go from friends to romantic interests.

Mal: “You know Peyton I think we should exchange numbers and all. For club gatherings and all that…”

Peyton: “Sure, sounds legit; but can you tell me why your mom is creeping on us?”

Mal: ” Um….not really…she’s just super weird I guess.”

Mal has his first kiss and embolden by his success he ask’s Peyton to be his girlfriend which she accepts.

08-31-16_5-01-46 PMMal decides to move the make-out session inside because he was a little weird-ed out that his mom all of a sudden turned into a creeper.

08-31-16_5-01-59 PMPearl: “Oh hey guys! If you too are going to be all hot n’heavy remember to use protection.”

Mal: “Mooommmmmmmm!!!! What’s wrong with you?!”

Pearl: “I’m just saying. I’m too young for any grand baby’s now.”

08-31-16_5-02-22 PMPeyton: “Well I think that’s my cue to leave.”

Pearl: “Don’t be a stranger dear!”

Mal: “It’s official, I’m going to die now.”

Pearl: “Man your sister is right, you are a drama llama.”

08-31-16_5-06-29 PMNeedless to say Mal doesn’t die of embarrassment. Instead he works on his charisma.

Mal: “Oh I’m not really reading. Just trying to forget one of the worst moments in my life and hope that Peyton still wants to be my girlfriend tomorrow; or even wants to talk to me anymore.”

08-31-16_8-12-13 PMAt least now when Kunzite breaks something I can have him fix it instead of his poor parents. Muahahahaha!

08-31-16_8-18-30 PMKunzite: “Mal quit sexting your girlfriend and start paying attention!”

Mal: “Don’t worry bro I still have enough mental capabilities to whip your but and talk to my girlfriend. And we are just talking you know?”

Kunzite: “Why wouldn’t you be sexting your girlfriend?”

Mal: “Dude not so loud! Mom will here you!”

Pearl: *yells from another room* “You better not be saying anything inappropriate or I’m going to have your dad mentor you on how to box. And we all know how much you hate to workout.”

And this is where I leave you. Will Pearl stop being a creeper or is she just getting started? Will Peyton still want to hang out with Mal?
