Chapter 4.0: A Single Man of Good Fortune and All That

Darcy was announced last chapter as the heir to generation four and now his job is to raise generation five! But first we still have Frederick, Georgiana, and Elliot in the house. Frederick will move out with Georgiana and Elliot when they become teens.

Darcy calls up the travel agency and books a trip to Selvadorada for himself and his cousin Frederick. Darcy wants to get out of the house and experience the world before he has to settle down and raise kids.

He meets some interesting locals and learns about the local culture.

02-01-19_2-26-29 PM.pngDarcy notices the stars are particularly bright in Selvadorada compared to his home in Brindleton Bay, or maybe he never took the time to appreciate them until now.

Frederick took advantage of the swimming pool before heading out to the local market place. He bought some souvenirs to remember his trip and got to chatting up the locals about the area and what he could expect to see and experience in Selvadorada.

Darcy: Hey Alison, it’s me, Darcy….from the bar last night.

Alison: Yes, I remember you. Practically the only other redhead here in Selvadorada. What can I do for you?

Darcy: Oh man, all this food looks so good….I don’t suppose, I mean, would it be too much to ask if I get a discount on your lovely food. Especially if I take you out later?

Alison: Well….I don’t know….this food is already at a good price….but you drive a hard bargain…Sure! Just don’t forget out date!

02-01-19_2-45-16 PM.pngDarcy: Wow! I wasn’t expecting it to be so spicy, but it’s really good!

Alison: I’m glad I can make your trip to Selvadorada a pleasurable one!

After eating he local cuisine Darcy purchased some supplies and headed out to explore the rich history that is Selvadorada.

The jungles of Selvadorada can be and exciting but dangerous place. While Darcy was fishing and admiring the runes of a civilization long past he was startled to see an alligator….or was it a crocodile….Either way he booked it out of their quickly and stubbled his way into a temple.

He was able to uncover some of the temples secrets before it was time to head home.

02-01-19_3-35-36 PM.pngBack at home he didn’t forget his promise to Alison and invited her to a Windenburg bonfire.

Darcy and Alison spent the majority of their night talking and dancing.They learned they  both shared a passion to dance. Before the night was over they exchanged contact information so they could get to know eachother better.

02-01-19_3-33-51 PM.pngWhile Darcy and Frederick were out adventuring Vex was promoted to Minor Leaguer.

02-01-19_4-35-45 PM.pngPoor Frederick was exhausted buy his trip he didn’t make it to his bed, though he was so close!

02-01-19_4-50-58 PM.pngGeorgiana: Thanks dad for helping me with this project.

Percy: Anything to spend some time with my baby girl.

Georgiana: Daaaaddddddddd I’m not so little anymore and Jane is your baby girl now.

Percy: You both are my baby girls….that never changes.

02-01-19_6-11-01 PM.pngDarcy: And so the dinosaurs lived happily ever after. The End. *whispers under breath* You are going to be so disappointed when you learn the truth about dinosaurs.

02-01-19_6-12-02 PM.pngWhile Darcy got a job in the Tech career Frederick got a job in the gardening career.

02-01-19_6-33-57 PM.pngHappy birthday Jane!

02-01-19_6-45-29 PM.pngJane rolled Outgoing just like her dad and big brother. She is also and Artistic Prodigy.

I can’t remember if it’s neighborhood brawl day or Vex just challenged Percy to a spar but Vex won.

02-01-19_7-03-41 PM.pngPercy: I honor the Harwood founders Pearl and Paolo may you continue to grace us with your ghostly presence.

02-01-19_7-31-01 PMDarcy: Thanks for coming Ali, even though it’s raining like crazy.

Ali: Oh the rain doesn’t bother me, and I like spending time with you.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Darcy: I like spending time with you too!*smooch* I hope that was ok.

Ali: More than ok it was the best first kiss ever!

Darcy: I know you said you don’t mind the rain, but how about we move our date to a cafe?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the way of sims the couple goes from their first kiss, to going steady, and finally to a proposal.

02-01-19_7-50-46 PM.pngAfter Darcy gets home from his date with Ali he reaches level 10 in the Programming skill. He still needs a couple of more hours on the computer and to reach level 5 in the Tech Guru career.

02-01-19_8-17-45 PM.pngPoor Georgiana was just coming out of the telescope after admiring the cosmos to get a shock from the sky.

02-25-19_9-04-32 PM.pngDarcy: Hey dad I just proposed to Ali and she said yes!

Percy: Congratulations son! Hopefully the universe will actually let you two lovebirds get married and not decide that you can’t say your vows for some non-existent reason.

Darcy: Um…..I’m not sure I understand

Frederick: Are you talking about why you and Aunt Harmony never got married? What did the universe have to do with it?

Percy: The universe works in mysterious ways….is all I’m saying.

02-25-19_9-08-16 PM.pngVex is still pretty badass!

02-25-19_9-19-28 PM.pngFrederick got a promotion!

02-25-19_9-18-54 PM.pngVax is a daily visitor. I thought I gave Scanlan a key to the house as well, but he doesn’t come over so maybe I didn’t? Next time I open up the game I’ll have to visit him.

Elliot: Hey Nicola you wanna hear a joke.

Nicola: Sure, I love a good joke!

Elliot: Ok so If you’re an American going into the bathroom, and an American coming out of the bathroom what are you in the bathroom?

Nicola: Um…………

Elliot: European!

Nicola: Um………….OH………hahaha I get it! That was a pretty bad joke, but it was kind of funny in how bad it was.

02-25-19_9-32-58 PM.pngVex was more productive in her day than her son Elliot while he was telling bad jokes she achieved a promotion.

02-25-19_9-53-36 PM.pngPercy: Honey, I want to support you in your creative endeavors, but you really need to stop painting the floors.

Jane: But dad, the floor is my canvas. It was calling to me!

Percy: We have an art table for when the creative muses come calling.

Jane: You don’t understand. The artist doesn’t pick the art, the art picks the artist!

Percy: Just clean it up and don’t do it again.

Harmony: After all of these years you still make my heart flutter.

Percy: Same for me.

Harmony: You sure that’s not you just getting older, maybe you should get that check out.

Percy: Ouch! Nothing like the love of your life calling you old.

02-25-19_10-36-45 PM.pngDarcy is getting close to completing his aspiration. He is a level 4 in his career, but he is getting close!

02-28-19_10-03-15 AM.pngPercy: Son, I’m so excited that you’re getting married. I’m sorry if I didn’t properly express that earlier. Sharing my life with your mom was the most amazing thing that I was able to experience, outside of having you and your sisters of course!

Darcy:  I know dad, but thanks for saying it.

02-28-19_10-06-12 AM.pngPercy completes a milestone then gets a couple of achievements.

02-28-19_10-07-02 AM.png

The most interesting sim in the world being one of them. The first time I got this achievement in the game!

02-28-19_10-16-59 AM.pngDarcy: Dad, are you ok?

Percy: I suddenly don’t feel very good.

02-28-19_10-17-28 AM.pngPercy: I think I’ll lay down here….

02-28-19_10-17-42 AM.pngDarcy: Dad no!

02-28-19_10-18-08 AM.pngGrimm: Ah jeez, another big family. It’s so much easier when I don’t have to deal with the water works. Whelp work calls.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Darcy: Please Grimm, don’t take him yet. It can’t be his time, it just can’t!

Grimm: Sorry kid, he’s lived a good and long life. Don’t worry though if you keep this urn around, like I know you legacy sims like to, you’ll still get to see him from time to time.

Harmony: *bawling her eyes out* It is SO NOT the same!

02-28-19_10-24-14 AM.pngGoodby Percival, you were one buff sim, maybe even buffer than your great-grandfather Paolo. Percy leaves behind his wife (In my eyes, but apparently not the games), three kids Darcy, Georgiana, and Jane. All of his siblings are currently alive; Scanlan is a vampire so will probably never die. And he has many nieces and nephews.

Darcy takes his official Portrait as heir to the legacy.

02-28-19_10-38-21 AM.pngVex: Take that, and that! How dare I be sleeping! I wasn’t able to say goodbye to my brother!

A couple of sim hours later Vex got the notification that Hector died as well.

Jane: Yay! Nothing like forced happiness to get over the death of a parent! At least it’s not Winterfest….or Harvestfest.

02-28-19_11-03-55 AM.pngI had to get Fredrick into a good mood, I think he’s in a playful mood, so that he wouldn’t cry while taking his portrait. It took several tries to get enough happy/playful emotions to out ride the sad.

02-28-19_11-10-49 AM.pngAli: So sorry about your dad.

Darcy: Thanks babe, in fact I was wondering if you’d like to move in. I know it seems too soon, but I know having you here will lift the spirits of the house!

Ali: How can I say no to that?

It also is Georgiana’s birthday! Rolles Self-Assured to go along with her Goofball and Vegetarian traits.

I’ll end this chapter introducing you to Darcy’s fiancee Alison Delgado, no relation to the Brindleton Bay Delgados.

She also came with a little bit of a bad reputation. I don’t know what for, but we’ll find out together.


Some Extras before you go!

02-01-19_7-17-19 PM.pngHere is Vax’s youngest daughter Vilya, also named after a Critical Role character.

02-01-19_7-18-56 PM.pngSean Blankenship is the grandson to Malia Harwood, generation 2 spare. His dad is Malia’s son Dominic Blankenship.

02-28-19_10-14-22 AM.pngThis is Kima Blankenship another grandchild of Malia. Daughter to Annabeth Blankenship.

02-28-19_10-14-32 AM.pngThis is Kima’s little brother Victor.

Chapter 2.9: The Aspiration Objective

Recap: 

→ Scanlan had a birthday and is now a Cat loving child

→ Percy went through and un-bearable stage in his childhood

→ Malin is now a teen

→ Catarina got abducted…again.

→ Vax and Vex had their childhood birthdays

01-07-18_8-52-43 PM.pngMalone: Ah another excellent painting finished.

Vex: Are you sure you want to put that piece there? Oh.My.Plumbob….what is that?

Scanlan: What’s What?

Vex: *quickly rearrange the pieces before her brother notices.

Really Catarina! I mean REALLY! It’s her third time, but I’ve never had a sim get abducted this many times. And what are they doing to her?

Catarina came back just in time to see her beloved Cleo pass into the next world. Percy was actually quite distraught but he got over it.

Malone: Hey everyone I know we just had a tragedy just happen but it’s Percival’s birthday. So come on let’s cheer him on!

Percy: Thanks dad, but if you really wanted to cheer me up you would have made an actual cake and not a lo-carb one. Are you trying to tell me something?

01-07-18_9-41-14 PM.pngPercy looks a lot like his mom, in my opinion anyway. He aspires to be a serial romantic which gives him the alluring trait. He also is a dance machine. I gave him a tattoo which I do for all of the kids, except I think I forgot to give one to Malia and Mallory last generation…oops!

01-07-18_9-44-16 PM.pngPercy: Gotta look good on the dance floor to attract the ladies!

01-07-18_10-04-28 PM.pngMalone goes over to visit Mallory and runs into her husband Sebatian Kennedy, who was a childhood friend of Mallory’s.

01-07-18_10-23-46 PM.pngPercy: Okay sis I won’t be so easily fooled by your tricks as Scanlan.

Vex: We shall see brother…we shall see…

02-12-18_10-06-21 AM.pngPercy: Well hello neighbor, fancy seeing you here at the park.

02-12-18_10-11-30 AM.pngEvie: Huh wha….

Percy: Ah…what’s going on?

Evie: Thought I saw a  goblin.

Percy: Um…so….did you?

02-12-18_10-13-03 AM.pngEvie: *sighs* No unfortunately.

Percy: So would you like to exchange phone numbers….you know in case you see a goblin you can tell me all about it.

Evie: Are you making fun of me?

Percy: Wouldn’t dream of it.

Evie: Well in that case sure….would you like to hang out with me?

Percy: Sure.

The two had a rather successful date. Both getting their first kiss, and Percy asked Evie to be his girlfriend. She said yes of course. No one can resist the allure of an alluring sim 😉

02-12-18_10-33-07 AM.pngBack home Malone adopts this little fluff ball Shilo. I’m trying to get Catarina to complete her aspiration.

02-12-18_10-39-47 AM.pngShe is so cute!

02-12-18_10-42-32 AM.png Catarina comes home with a promotion.

02-12-18_12-43-24 PM.pngDating in the 21st century. Percy actually completes his first milestone of getting a girlfriend  and having 2 successful dates.

Now it’s on to more romancing. He and Ibraham just share a high five and then Ibraham has to leave. Percy was much more successful with Oumaima here.

02-12-18_8-51-16 PM.pngHe invites her over to his house to put the moves on her. He doesn’t want Evie to surprise him.

02-12-18_9-06-58 PM.pngScanlan: Oh don’t mind me I’m just hanging here!

02-12-18_9-48-37 PM.pngThe next day Percy invites a friend from school over. 02-22-18_9-32-34 AM.pngOh they sure do grow up fast!

02-22-18_9-51-19 AM.pngCataria has a few days off from work so Malone took her to the Geek festival to spend some quality time together….where they were both on seperate computers….

Don’t worry they had some quality time in the rocket ship…*wink…wink*

02-22-18_9-53-35 AM.png Malone took home one of those fancy computers.

02-22-18_10-06-57 AM.pngBack at home Percy and Vex are utilizing the made over front porch. The front porch was looking a little bare and I wanted to make it more homey.

02-22-18_10-16-41 AM.pngAfter finishing his homework Percy invites Izumi over for a make out sesh.

02-22-18_10-53-35 AM.pngI sent Catarina over to the Vet Clinic since I haven’t been there in a while. Nothing super exciting happens.

02-24-18_8-58-16 AM.pngVex: Oh man that was a close one!

Please don’t burn down the house Vex’ahlia!

02-24-18_9-13-20 AM.pngCatarina: I’m warning you cat…don’t sit on counters or tables. You wouldn’t want the wrath of Peyton Harwood on you!

02-24-18_9-13-27 AM.pngShilo: *Hisses at the mention of Peyton’s name*

02-24-18_9-16-46 AM.pngDon’t look so sad Scan-man, it’s your birthday!

02-24-18_9-34-01 AM.pngScanlan receives the Lazy trait just like his grandpa Mal and his dad. His aspiration is to be a Good Vampire which gives him the gregarious trait as well. Scanlan aslo has the creatively gifted trait for completing his child aspiration along with Happy Toddler trait.

Look at how cute these two are! Now Percy has 3 strong romantic relationships.

02-24-18_10-03-34 AM.png Here is Percy’s progress so far.

02-24-18_10-15-29 AM.pngCatarina: Here you go Shy have a treat.

02-24-18_10-15-43 AM.png Catarina: Oh my….what happened!

02-24-18_10-15-48 AM.pngPoor Shilo! Catarina fed her the saltwater taffy treat and she got swamp mouth! Catarina took her to the vet clinic where she examined her. She is fine now.

02-24-18_10-39-48 AM.pngIzumi and Percy are now boyfriend and girlfriend.

02-24-18_10-42-58 AM.pngCatarina: Hey cat I’m serious you need to get off the counter!

Shilo: *gives Catarina a pitiful stare in her cone of shame*

Catarina: Don’t you dare give me that look! If Peyton gets a hold of you your going to need a whole lot more than a cone of shame!

02-24-18_11-23-57 AM.pngPeople at the house gathering around the kitchen can only mean one thing….PAR-TAY TIME!

02-24-18_11-24-11 AM.pngIt’s time for Malin’s YA birthday!

02-24-18_11-37-12 AM.pngHere she is in all of her alien glory! She is now a Kleptomaniac with fits nicely with her Chief of Mischief aspiration.

02-24-18_11-39-51 AM.pngMalone took her portrait which will be hung on the wall to be immortalized with all the other Harwoods.

So I will end her good readers! Hoped you enjoyed the latest instalment to the Harwood Legacy and happy simming!

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 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 1.3: 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?
