The Moran family were originally fair with blond hair and brown eyes. The hair has been lost in the direct line but there are enough blond sims running around to bring it back.
This was an eventful round for the Moran’s as their propensity for bad luck resurfaced after generations of ease.
We started the round with a birthday Les Wynn, who incidentally carries no Wynn blood at all and will be changing his name at the end of the era, grew into an adult. I have no idea what happened to his skin, the default replacements I have in are really glitchy. I must look into that.
“Not orange! It clashes horribly with my hair.” Someone is less than thrilled at his makeover.
Little Kleon who looks more like a Harmon with Wynn features than the Moran heir grew into a toddler. I’m hoping he grows into his features.
Korin, the son of Les and Rain looks far more like a Moran. Ah sim genetics, you taunt me so… I have no idea where his hair colour came from probably one of those elusive founder recessives I put in.
Just a friendly reminder that Rain spent the beginning of the round pregnant. I believe she wasn’t as far along as her belly would indicate.
Syd succumbed to the flu at first it seemed only Felix was there to lament his passing.
But Fira arrived just in the nick of time to save him.
After all she was expecting her third baby and babies need fathers.
Speaking of her babies, little Alba collapsed at the foot of the stairs. Ill with the same deadly illness as her uncle/step-father.
The whole family crowded around to try and save her.
But death, evidently tired of the Moran’s cheating their unlucky fate took Alba.
Alba was spoilt and very loved. She would be surely missed. Even her little step-brother and whatever-relation-Korin-is-to-her, too young to understand death were devastated.
Fira was hit the hardest by her girl’s passing.
Life slowly picked back up it’s pace. Rain grew closer to her due date.
Syd managed to work off his belly.
And Fira went into labor.
This is Georgios. Since he has the correct eyes and may carry blond hair I’ve decided the Moran line will skip Kleon and go to him.
Syd is less than pleased at the birth of his son as he and his aunt Luna dread the extra messes to clean.
After an uneventful pregnancy Rain went into labor.
She had another boy, Cato. The house was pretty crowded by this point.
No sooner had Rain given the baby to Luna to hold than the labor pains started again. Neither she nor I expected twins from such an easy pregnancy.
She had a girl, named Horacia.
With Fira too tired, Les off somewhere and Syd to ‘busy’ to hold the baby Rain laid her daughter on the floor.
Turns out I wasn’t right about it not being twins. Little Pyrrhus, followed his brother and sister into the world. I’m happy to see more green eyes floating around.
I was cursing all through the birth. Even if it was just twins they’d have twice as many babies as they can fit cots into the nursery area. As it is they have three times as many babies/toddlers as cots.
That night Rain grew into an adult.
With four young children to care for she traded her old finery for more station appropriate clothes.
To save my sanity Rain and Les moved out with their children. Six babies/toddlers and a shop is more than I can deal with. Since I moved them out mid round you’ll be seeing the rest of their round up next.
Luna succumbed to the mystery illness (ok I forgot what it was but shh) and again only loyal Felix seemed to care. Fira was so worn by running after toddlers and babies that she walked right past without noticing.
Syd was too busy with the shop and garden to notice.
Life went on and little Georgios started crawling.
He shared a birthday with his big brother.
Here Kleon is post makeover.
While Kleon was sifting through hand me downs from long forgotten relatives Fira began to feel deathly ill.
Luckily death was merciful and returned her soul.
This has happened so many times between them that neither deems the near death experience worth a comment.
Rain found some time away from her babies to furnish her new apartment.
Syd’s birthday rolled around. Of the eleven generation three direct Moran line descendents he is the only one to reach adulthood. All of his siblings died very young.
As a knowledge sim he wasn’t happy about the lack of educational prospects.
He dressed in a similar style to Les.
He found time to potty train his son.
Next thing I knew this was before me. The urn is Fira’s. With no way to save Syd he was claimed by Grimmy at last. The longest surviving generation three Moran lived not ten hours after his adult birthday. Georgios was terrified and hid under the bed while ever loyal Felix cried for his sims.
Poor baby 😦
Once more the Moran line was left hanging by a thread.
Or in this case on the shoulders of a six year old and his baby brother. I couldn’t find any relatives to move in and I would have to play Les and Rain for a few days before I could move them back in so I decided to just play the brothers alone for the remaining day.
Turns out I modded out the socail worker taking orphaned kids but not the cops taking abandoned pets. Lets just say Felix was stolen. Yeah that works.
Kleon snatches a moment of childhood while his brother sleeps.
Child: Kleon (4), Toddler: Georgios (4)
Please survive babies. I can’t have an original family line going extinct.
