Note: Timing got confusing for me and I ended up going an extra day like a dumbass. This will be a longer than normal post.
Oh and look kids, no family portrait! Again. Whoops.
Last time, Jordan got caught flirting and was then divorced. Russell and Jordan became the parents of Faith, and Fern became an adult just in time to take over Jordan’s position as salesperson in the family’s toy store.
Now that they have townies, the toy store goes into overdrive.
Fern: Olive, with all of those kids, you definitely need a lot of toys!
Olive: I agree, but which ones should I get?
Faith usually comes around for a diaper change (I forgot to buy the poor thing a potty, as Fern never needed one) and cuddles.
So Fern has a thing for married men. Poor Justin has no willpower and accepts her rose. I found out just prior that Fern was a Romance sim.
I am so glad that Olive is still oblivious to the shenanigans we saw back here. Let’s just hope she keeps her mouth shut about what is going on right in front of the whole world.
Bwahahahaha! I forgot I had that face template in. Omg. Haha.
Freaking Jordan is smoking something. I do not recall this outing at all, but we will keep the gift anyway.
This is Donald Wise
Now we know that Fern is smoking the same thing as Jordan. She also has romantic wants for both Tobias and Justin too. Slut. God, I love this woman.
Olive spent the evening on the new dj booth while we see Fern suffocating poor Donald in the background.
I get the feeling that the only reason Fern wanted to fall in love with Donald was so they could get this good review.
Investigating the business? You mean investigating Fern in her bed upstairs, right?
Donald: I am not adverse to bribes.
Faith came out for another snuggle and diaper change. This is when I realized that time had gotten away from me. I think this is day two or three by now.
Fun times between sisters. At this point, both Fern and Russell ran off to their showers so they wouldn’t dry out. Before, they would take turns.
This was the result. Scott Hopson waits patiently to complain to Russell.
Russell fails at dj-ing while Fern restocks the shop.
Fern invites Donald over so that she can fall in love with him.
After getting rid of Donald, Fern hails down this impressive bit of manmeat and chats him up. This might be Timothy Moseley.
Donald: You’re on a date with someone else?
Fern: Your point?
Donald: Um. I don’t have one. I was just curious. Carry on.
She ignores Timothy for a moment to greet Enrique Randall.
Faith has her birthday, which I thought was a little soon. I had been planning a birthday party for her for the next day.
And a surprise! I chose to let it be a complete surprise and I did not check who the father was. It could be any of the men in this update so far.
According to my calculations I was either one day before the end of the round or one day after. I could not figure it out because….
They sold the business contents, gifts and house for a very large house that has four bedrooms and a nursery, leaving them with about $11,000.
Russell is super excited to be a grandpa soon.
Fern takes out a $30,000 loan and helps her dad buy a hot tub business. She lets Russell schmooze while she sells the tickets to Olive and Eric Gibson.
Louise Ratner shows up and seems in good spirits.
Russell has been doing pretty good at keeping his hands to himself. It might be because he only has one bolt with Eric.
Russell, Olive, Eric and Louise hanging out. Fern is unable to get in because she is pregnant. She reads a physiology book instead.
Then maxes athletics.
In the pitch black of night, another alien faced guy named Darrel Marsh gets dazzled to pay the new price of $375 a ticket.
In case you were wondering, no it is not all one-sided. These men are all whipped. Stupid, Justin. I check to make sure Louise is not here.
They become best friends a minute later when he buys his ticket.
Don’t even think it, Russell! You’re about to be a grandpa!
I don’t even know what day it is anymore, people, but Justin is here most nights along with every other man in town.
She wanted a date with him and he fell in love after one kiss. Yay.
She puts on a very good show and gets a new business rank.
No. Just read your parenting book and don’t think about kissing. Ever again.
Fern: Are you sure you want to come hot tubbing here?
Penny Ramsey: Yep!
Fern: Okay, let me mark the tickets up to $1,000.
Penny: On second thought.
Here is Darrel in the daylight, but I think the girl is pretty eye catching! Toni Ward is a teen and I am keeping my eye on that one.
Fern can finally add Darrel to her harem.
Go home, Justin!
Her belt is running out of room for her notches. This is Drew Sullivan.
Russell was feeling neglected, so he found himself a little fun time guy named Otis Wilkins.
After the initial flirt, Russell was on freewill. I watched him and Otis while keeping Fern away from men.
Fern, back away from our future mayor! Look, Timothy is right behind you.
Sigh. Fern has slept with every man in this picture. I think I set jealousy to engaged/married only on the very first day (during the meet and greet).
WTF!? Leave Scott alone! ACR dammit. I think it was just the one kiss at least.
Whoops, we missed Donald’s visit. Oh well.
In case you were wondering, Fern has worked her ass off for almost two weeks now. Russell cleans up hotdog and hamburger plates, unclogs the mens room toilet and cleans the shower. Fern deals with the ladies bathroom and sales.
Fern earns another $100,000 and she keeps it for herself and put it in the bank. Russell is left with almost nothing, so they stay another few days so the business can reach rank 10. Russell’s LTW was to earn $200,000, in case you did not check the family directory.
Russell (really Fern did dammit) earned all the cash perks and is working on the others slowly. He knew Fern had a lot of friends and tried out his new power networking perk on her.
Darrel cannot get enough of Fern.
Fern: I want-
Fern: But it’s a fine, pinchable ass!
Fern makes a real best friend. One that she has not slept with.
Just when you thought it was safe to leave Fern to her own devices.
Tobias! Do not encourage her!
Oh thank God.
I give up.
The business is now closed. Russell and Fern stick around for four more days so he can pass along all the perks back to her since she earned them all to begin with.
Three weeks to the day after starting the business, they finally head back home. To a freaking circus!
All of her dream dates (Tobias and Justin had two each) showed up. Justin would later show up with a karaoke machine for Fern.
Faith: Daddy! You’re finally home! I thought my first day of school was going to last forever!
Russell was on a date with Otis, so it was up to Fern to teach Faith to study.
Knowing that she no longer needed her perks from being a plantsim, Fern was finally able to call and buy the potion. (She rolled to become human as a toddler).
So, you can’t go in a hot tub, but you can jump rope and drink strange potions. Good to know.
Garden lady showed up. I wish Fern was gay or Russell was straight. She’s cute.
Hahaha. I guess Donald the Reviewer is the daddy of baby boy Terrence! Omg.
Russell knew he needed a son to take over the family, so he decided to give Fern Hot Tub Heaven. If he does not produce a son, Terrence will automatically inherit.
The matchmaker showed up. Russell decided to buy a blind date and got Clarence Martin.
They only have one bolt, but they do look cute together.
When Clarence fell in love with Russell, Russell decided to let him move in with his measly $1. He knows that if this does not work out, Otis is still an option.
Terrence has his birthday and I call the round quits. After some calculations, it is exactly one day past the end of the round. That means everyone here will have aged up five years instead of the normal four.
The Fayers are our first Upper Class family. They got $137,000 for the sale of that house. They are now worth over $300,000. It was so nice, that I foresee a lot of business being bought. Fern also paid off the loan she took out and she is getting $6,000 in interest when it accrues interest.
Fees: $3,000 (immigration of Clarence).
- I am so glad that this all took place on a community lot while she was knocked up. Could you imagine how many babies she could have popped out? (Fern is one that cannot have birth control).
- Russell is not too keen on Clarence, so I might have him move out next time if they do not get on well together.
- More Faith next time, I promise.
- Fern’s age discrepancy: She started out at 18, but after becoming human she is now older than her dad. She aged about 14 years becoming human.
