Clarence Martin is 34, Russell Fayers is 30, Fern Fayers is 36, Faith Fayers is 7, and Terrence Fayers is 1.
(Charles Walters, Ellen Walters, Paul Russell, Jessie Gibson, Jackie Gibson, Jacey Gibson, Frank Gibson, Tobias O’Hara, Justin Ratner, Doreen Bryan, Olive O’Hara, )
Last time, Fern worked the Toy shop with her dad, Russell. She sort of worked all the men in town too. Faith aged up to an adorable little girl and Fern sort of got knocked up by Donald the Reviewer. Russell then gave Fern the hot tub business and all his perks, then she became human and Russell moved in Clarence Martin after a tepid date, but who can say no when there aren’t many other.
I was asked if Fern had any actual friends without benefits, and I can say that she does indeedy..because sleeping with family is just icky! There were two more pages of sims, but none were romantic or friendly.
Now back to our regularly scheduled update, but not before I mention that I had a lot of issues in this house. I will let you know when we get to them.
We arrive officially into the house to see some hanky panky going on. I also found out that my graphics card was not supported and I ran a program and my game looks a billion times better to me.
After hanky panky, it was toddler times with Terrence. At some point, Fern is seen actually helping out by teaching him to walk and his nursery rhyme.
That hanky panky led us to this point, which ruined my plans. I mean, he still had to have a natural baby, but I had other plans first.
Then I said, fuck it. Let’s do my plan anyway.
I was greeted by this and I quit without saving.
Much better! Of course, now Russell is two-toned, but I do fix him in SimPe later on.
Now here is the toddler line! It starts with Terrence and ends with..whoever that is. The toddlers are Asparagus, Orchid, Oleander and Lavender. Two boy and two girl “quads”.
Faith actually left the piano long enough to play with Asparagus…which makes me laugh typing that up.
See! Fern does notice that Terrence exists!
Here is the fixed face of (well profile…ish) Russell. I hope I got a head on shot because he looks good. Anyway, I forgot how hard it was to work with four plantbabies. Lots of love and baths.
There he is. It’s also baby time!
You know, this would be awesome if we didn’t already have one kid and five toddlers. At least they are both boys! Randy (bottom, I think) has brown hair and blue eyes like Martin. Edmund has red hair and green eyes like Russell.
Unfortunately the labor was just too much for Russell after also producing four other kids one right after another. He placed the baby on the floor and wilted away.
This sucked since I really love him, hence the baby explosion. Russell was permaplat so I used Rodney’s Death Creator to let him die of old age. Non-permaplat would have gotten some horrible death. Anyway, due to this fact, the family does get the old age inheritance. I will not be calculating it and handing it out like I did when Scott got hit by a car.
Well shit. Great idea to mass produce babies before having someone die.
Martin makes his appearance to grab one of the babies to comfort him. I don’t actually like the guy, so I don’t control him.
Faith plays the piano for the kids. If she keeps it up she will have maxed creativity before her birthday.
Stuff that happened, but didn’t really happen:
The Fayers’ were not poor, but Russell’s insurance proved fruitful. With the added money, Fern was able to buy Area 23 (I would link it, but MTS has been giving me server down errors since last night), a dance studio..club thing. As soon as it reaches rank 5 she can leave and join the dance career as her LTW is to be a ballet dancer.
Fern, this is not how you make money.
Fern: Yeah, but this is how you make stars.
Ellen and Paul came to check out the dance floor.
Ellen survives on dates and energizer usages.
It is also a fantastic way to make stars.
Darrel Marsh proves that Fern hasn’t screwed everyone in town! Well, okay, now she has.
Drew Sullivan was her next victim date. The poor sap even fell in love.
Jessie showed up and heartfarted Fern. Haha.
Fern jams the DJ Booth like a boss.
Jane: Man, her hair clipping into her armpit is just so hot.
I don’t have inteen in, but I apparently have something in for adult/teen relations. Jane got what she wanted and Fern got the public woohoo want filled.
Jacey showed up.
Followed by Jackie.
Jackie: Your boobs are mesmerizing!
Fern: Look, I just did your sister, you sure you want a piece of this?
Jackie: Uh. No. Thanks.
Frank: You know, I wouldn’t be adverse to doing in front of the whole place.
Fern: Good to know.
So they did and fell in love. She abandons Frank to talk Ellen into paying $250 to dance.
Fern still has a couple of woohoo’s for 20 left to go. She sets her sights on Yvette.
Fern changes her mind and power networks with her instead.
Enrique is her next date.
Followed by Justin.
Fern dropped prices and meditated for a day to give her girly parts time to recover from all the attention. Charles’ dancing had me in actual hysterics. He’s afreakingdorable.
Doreen: Go me! Go me! I’m awesome. So awesome!
Doreen: You’re not going to show everyone that picture of me falling on my face are you?
Of course not. You’re safe.
Doreen: Whew! Thanks!
I forgot all about Doreen and Fern for a while. Ellen has been riding this thing nonstop for like 5 hours. She can’t go in a hot tub, but she can spin a million times at 80mph? Really?
Guess who never thought to save? Yeah. She lost her 15-20 woohoo’s, 7 dates, which might have gotten her gifts, and a rank 4 business.
Don’t worry, I didn’t make you sit through all that again. No woohoo’s this time or dates this time. I pretty much just got her to the low end of gold to hit the energizer and then lowered prices to $1 and left her meditating while I read some of the blogs I was behind on. I came back just after rank 3 and then kept an eye out for rank 4, which is where we died last time. She jacked the price to see if anyone would pay.
Kid Who’s Name Doesn’t Matter: Hi, Fern!
Fern: Oh. You’re just in time!
KWNDM: For what?
Yeah, so for the first time ever, I see this option called “Manipulate”. I got this shit down to a science. Dazzle, Manipulate, Manipulate, Dazzle, Energizer.
KWNDM: Did I really just pay $25,000?
Bwahahaha! Yes you did….and then stayed for like 6 hours.
KWNDM: $25,000 to dance in an empty building? Yeah, I’m awesome!
Actually, you sound like a rich loser to me.
KWNDM: Hey, when has a loser like me ever had this much facetime? I bet you marry me in now.
I would probably need to remember your name for that to happen.
Fern is up to around $252,000 now.
Fern gets what’s his name to pay the money too and then a quick date so she can use the energizer.
Fern is not making many friends. She stays in the date long enough to fulfill two wants to get back to gold. The black haired boy pays up too.
Enrique: You want me to pay how much?
Fern: Oh, silly. It’s not that expensive. You really, really want to make me happy don’t you?
Enrique: Aren’t you on a date with another man?
Fern: Oh, don’t you worry about the nonimportant stuff. Just reach into your pocket and swipe the card.
Enrique: Yes. Yes, I should do that right now.
Shit! Jealousy is for married/engaged dammit! Stop that!
Fern: That bastard tried to ruin my date for the energizer!
Another nameless man: You’re only dating me for aspiration points?
Fern: *tickle tickle*
Darrel: Stop, stop! I’ll pay!
Fern: Good boy.
Wut?! Enrique didn’t leave in a jealous rage? It’s been like 4 hours! Having a three level business is hard to keep up with. Enrique beats up the hapless aspiration date.
Everyone wants to come in, but Fern can only concentrate on one person at a time. She chose the girl in yellow.
I think paying that much is killing us. It has been rank 4 for eons.
Omg. It’s time to stop.
The price to get in is $1, but these four are still paying the $25,000. Fern can now just relax and run from group to group chatting and making sure they keep paying.
…and there it is. Jane gives us the last star for rank 5.
She leaves with a lot of cash and can now get a job in the Dance career.
Fern: I’m home guys! Did you miss me?
Faith: You were gone?
Fern: Yes! For like 17 years!
Faith: No, you were gone like 10 seconds. Go take a shower, you stink!
Fern: You’ll thank me in a few years, little sister.
Faith: For what?
Fern: For the chance to go to college and get a great job.
Fern also put $100,000 in the bank for all the children, as repayment for taking their small inheritance to buy the dance studio.
Fern took a shower and drops dead in the bed. I have a no kids in double beds mod, but apparently it does not work.
Asshole Clarence is passed out in rotten mac and cheese. Fern has to get up and rush around because of all the “So-and-so needs love” “So-and-so needs water” pop ups.
Each child gets three interactions, talk to, snuggle and play with.
Then we stop for birthdays. Edmund is up top and Randy is next. At this point, the pop ups are really yelling for the kids to get water or a bottle. Apparently giving them a bottle doesn’t work, because they all had one and are still dried out.
Tobias dropped off a gift, which confused me. Her only date with him was before the crash. She has plenty of money, so she stashes it away.
Fern is in a hurry and just shovels the food in.
Fern is at work (level 5), when the pop ups show up again.
Clarence! There are like 7 toddlers to take care of!
Clarence: *bangs keys* I don’t hear you!
Faith got home from school and decided to do her homework outside, where the crying and screaming babies were not so loud.
There’s one less toddler now that Terrence has aged up.
Fern got home from work (without a promotion) and spent the whole night bathing toddlers.
Faith has just passed creativity level 9 and wants to max the skill. Her paintings are selling for around $200 when she actually leaves the piano, which only happens when it needs to be tuned.
Clarence is on his second plate of rotten spaghetti while Fern is at work.
Fern finally gets a promotion, but now has two days off. This is fine because we have toddlers to look after.
WOO! No we don’t! Last year, I went into Simpe and changed it so age up are at 9pm, in case you were wondering. Which you probably weren’t.
I’m not sure if I was more excited for plantsims or only having two toddlers left at this point.
We will just ignore the fact that they are not really becoming teens. I won’t know which one got which personality until later this round because I don’t have my game open right now.
and at the time, I was too busy dealing with this!
Lavender, who didn’t drop down in failure, watched on.
Terrence learns to study.
With less toddlers, Fern is able to spend time with her baby siblings. God knows that Clarence won’t get off his ass to help out.
Now it’s time to say goodbye.
They run off and form our 8th household.
Next up was Clarence getting ready to start a real life. He absolutely refused to take his kids with him. Fern was horrified and force him to sign over his rights as a parent and as the caretaker of their trust fund.
Glitch alert: Instead of Clarence leaving, Terrence walked off the lot and disappeared. He was still in the family tree, but not anywhere in the world. He could not be called to visit or anything. I got out the teleporter, but he was not listed under the Fayers’ name. I went to other lots, I checked with the “quads” and nothing. I think it was about an hour later that I checked the teleporter again. I found him listed with the NPC’s. Crisis averted!
Poor Fern is now raising three of her siblings and her own little boy.
Museum: $250,000 (deduct from Tobias in round 5).
Earned 4 CAS sims
SM Multiplier hit 8
Things to do:
Start up fund for poor kids to go to college.
Manipulate- that has to be the greatest thing ever. I have several teens who want to go to university and I knew Fern was the most popular person to get that for them.
With the University and more households, a museum was opened up. I will donate the $250,000 cost for the lot when Round 5 starts. This also gives us our first positive count for CAS sims. We need new blood (I had not planned on ever using more than the starting CAS sims), so household 10 will be seen throughout the rest of the round I believe.
Crashes and glitches! I really thought that my hood was exploding when Terrence went missing. At least he chose the last day of the rotation!
