Ok so a word of warning this update is looong and some of the pictures are kind of shoddy but I did start using a picture taking program so the pictures are bound to get better. Please excuse the pause lines in the first few pictures.
The Wynn family despite being the third richest family couldn’t find the money to pay their bills at the start of this round.
They did find the money to buy a tub to wash their dog who’s name escapes me because he stunk.
Most of my sims are really playful so this is nothing new.
Of course putting soap in a fountain is absolutely hilarious when you’re forty and own said fountain.
Now this is the strange bit. When they composed themselves, Atan and Ira gave each other this look.
They proceeded to the study for some woohoo on the sofa.
It took them a really long time to work out it was occupied.
“Uh bye mum.”
Eventually they found an unoccupied bed. Well done.
“Nice weather we’re having.”
I think she should have been a romance sim instead of a family sim sometimes.
Fini actually played with Theodora. Ideally she and Itan should have two or three kids by now but how terribly neglected Theodora normally goes made me give them a break.
But for once she wasn’t sleeping on the floor.
It might have had something to do with the fact that it was her birthday.
Hopefully she gets the Dusk features rather than the Wynn features. Lixa’s nose is a prime example of why I’m regretting not taking the time to make prettier founders.
After her birthday Theodora was promptly forgotten about again.
I can’t bear to watch.
The kicky bag animations are the best. Anyway Lixa brought Pelagia over after school. Lixa needs more friends to I overlooked the whole slave/patrician thing.
Those are her teeth you can see. Stuff like this doesn’t exactly give me much hope for her future looks.
So the camera zoomed to Fini who was cheering for some reason.
It wasn’t until she got changed that I found out why. She was pregnant. Hopefully this baby is a boy so they only have to have one more and hopefully this baby isn’t as neglected as Theodora.
“Since you’re a grandmother and all shouldn’t you be old by now?”
I kind of have the impression these two have a very cordial relationship. It may have something to do with the way Atan stares at Fini and heart farts her. They don’t hate each other but I never got the impression they got along particularly well.
Fini: She’s never going to die is she?
Lixa found herself a potential love interest in Iovis Crespo. He’s a slave and all but since Lixa has no marriage prospects I’d feel bad not letting her have any fun.
kind of cute super adorable.
It didn’t take long for them to share their first kiss.
Meanwhile Fini continues to feel the affects of her pregnancy.
I just love this picture of them 🙂
Soon the young lovers were moving on to less innocent things.
Her immediate reaction. She ate some bad food but it’s still pretty funny.
I love my werewolves but I keep forgetting to send them off the lot before they turn. It tanks everyone’s aspiration and fills their wants and fears with werewolf related stuff.
I went to check on Fini to find this. She had a cold but I didn’t expect her to die from it but realistic sickness does that.
Fini was one of my favorites (and she was pretty) and Itan needs a heir (he has no other marriage prospects) so I sent him to plead for her.
But he was too late. RIP Fini 😦
Most of the family was suitably distraught. Of course no one consoled little Theodora.
Kani who was visiting and Aqua (is that the dog’s name?) were also very upset.
Even Iovis shed a tear for his lover’s sister in-law (who may have been his aunt or something). But Ira didn’t bat an eyelid.
Little did she know this blow was the first of many tragedies.
Lixa’s food poisoning was far worse than anyone knew and she too succumbed to sickness.
Aqua asks for comfort in this difficult time bu he was pushed away.
Atan broke down several times the following night.
The need drop after the death of her daughter and daughter in law caused Ira to lose a baby I didn’t even know she was carrying. In a perfect world she would have carried the baby to term and perhaps he would have more chance of marrying and continuing the family line than his brother.
Ira was sent plummeting deeper into aspiration failure.
This damn near broke my heart. Evidently not having heard the sad news, Iovis dropped off a rose for Lixa.
But life goes on. That night Theodora left toddler hood behind.
Despite the recent losses, Theodora looks to the future with optimism.
She did grow up badly but at least she was putting a brave face on things.
After a makeover, Theodora seems to have much more Fisher in her than Wynn.
And who knows, perhaps their will be a new baby soon after all.
When the new day dawned it was the last day of the season. As per my rules the family could eat grandma’s comfort soup to cure them of any ills.
As a birthday present Theodora was given a puppy named Puppy. Hey names aren’t my strong point.
Soon Itan has his birthday. He feels far older than a new adult after his recent losses.
Here he is after his makeover.
With that we end the round.
Back: Atan (2), Ira (2)
Front: Theodora (4), Itan (3)
Note: After playing this round I was unsure what to do about Itan and his heir. Thankfully I now know everything works out for him.
