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?
