It’s time for the Fire household, where Harmonia is moving in first thing in the morning. :3
So, first off, a little something about the whole marriage (and children) thing at this stage in the neighbourhood.
Two sims moving in together mean committed relationship. For me. The game sees this a little different, which means that technically my sims are married (because that’s what the game understands as committed relationship), but story-wise marriage isn’t a thing, yet.
As far as children go, they basically always get their mother’s family name. If the mother is in a committed relationship that generally means that the child is getting their father’s name. If not, the child is just raised by the mother (and her family).
What this means, is that there is no reason for the females of the Earth family and any non-heirs of the other families to move in with somebody else. Except being in love and wanting to be together.
For Orpheus and Harmonia, it was pretty clear as 1) Orpheus is the heir (so he needs a committed partner to pass the Fire name on) and 2) they’re in love. And really cute together. <3
Last round, Luna actually fell in love with Pollux, who sadly died shortly after. :< But at the beginning of the round, she got involved with Phyros and we’ll see how that develops. ^_^
Also, Luna finally got a new hair cut as I really wasn’t happy with the one I gave her last round. :3
While Orpheus and Harmonia are busy being absolute adorable, Phyros is passing by.
And Luna obviously greeted him in. XD
Well, I guess…
We better just go back to observing those two. =P
Which didn’t quite work out, though, because Phyros decided to fall in love, which I had to capture. :> This also means that Phyros is now in love with Alyone, Antiope and Luna. ^^”
In the evening it’s time for… Guess what? Yes, birthdays. XD
Gunnar is growing up fine.
And becomes a popularity sim with preference for artistically-minded, freckly sims without jewelry.
Orpheus is doing excellent (besides the choice of his outfit *cough*).
One wardrobe change later. And you can probably guess what they’ll be up to in no time. =P
Luna is in love, too. :3 Which of course means, she now afraid to get into a committed relationship with Phyros. As the latter is the Air heir, I don’t whether she’ll get around it, though. :<
Then Ianus tried to cook and set the hearth on fire. >_>
Which is of course the exact moment those two choose to woohoo. XD
Apart from that, my founders are actually all getting old the first evening of this round (except Vidya ’cause she’s been dead for a day ^^”) and some of you might (or probably not) have already wondered about Ianus’ birthday.
Well, he choose this moment, in the midst of fighting the fire, to get old. o.ô
It’s actually a mircale he survived. >_<
But he grew up really well and managed to get the fire under control.
Then he sat down and enjoyed his freshly
burnt cooked meal. XD
Surprisingly enough, both Luna and Harmonia managed to not get pregnant on their first woohoo. :>
The penguin visited. <3
In my old challenge hood, it was passing by all the time, but I think it’s the first time I’ve seen it here.
Harmonia and Luna are getting along great. ^o^
Luna playing catch with her father. If you can even call it that. What she’s playing is more “hit” than catch. XD
Finally a picture of Gunnar, where you can see his face. ^^”
First heat stroke. :<
Then first bump. :D
Also, the morning sickness must have been real nice with Harmonia as I have no picture of her feeling sick.
Pomona <3 Probably coming out to take a look at the new family member.
And scaring Varius in passing. =P
I apparently wasn’t taking any photos the next day, so… Second bump. :3
And Pomona’s around again. She doesn’t seem to be too happy with Orpheus’ choice. XD
Which Ianus isn’t either, by the way. I really don’t get what his problem is with Harmonia, though. She’s like the nicest, neatest and most playful sim ever. >_<
At least, she’s getting along with all the other family members. ^_^
Which Pomona doesn’t like either? :<
The next evening, Dione, who hasn’t really shown up until now, is getting older. =)
She was a little sickly as a child, but is doing fine now. <3
She’s also a fortune sim who likes grey haired sims with make-up.
After make-over. :>
And then, my prehistoric simmies kept themselves entertained with some dog fights. XD
Poor Gunnar got scared by Pomona while trying to shower, peed his pants and broke said shower. o_o
And if that wouldn’t be enough, Alyone got angry at him for breaking his own shower… o.ô
But Pomona’s getting revenge for her poor son.
(Even though, the whole situation is her fault anway. *cough* >_>)
Not that that would stop Alyone from pestering Gunnar and he’s angry at her now as well.
But anyway. On to happier things. :D
Namely, Harmonia giving birth to my first 3rd generation babies. ^=^
First (yes, first because apparently we start the next generation as we finished the last ^^”), we have a girl, Hypatia, who’s in good health.
Next is Azrael, who’s in terrible health, and his delivery cost Harmonia quite a few health points as well. =/
Then we have Ollowain, who’s doing good as well.
And how could I not name Ollowain’s first blond grandson after him. =P
And finally, we have Kyros, who’s also in good health.
Contrary to the last set of quads, these didn’t have to spend their first hour on the floor as Orpheus, Gunnar and Dione helped out.
There are also (still) enough cribs for everyone. ^_^
And Ianus proves what a dedicated grandpa he is by autonomously changing diapers even though he was afraid to do so. <3
The last day of the round, Phyros came over again. :3
And Orpheus and Harmonia decided, they needed even more kids…
Family sims. >_<
And it’s kind of hilarious that she’s totally blaming Orpheus for this. XD
And to end the round, we have Orpheus making some more stupid decisions. Like taking a nap under the blazing sun at noon.
And poor Harmonia, who now has to fight a bad case of morning sickess after all.
Elder Ianus (128), adults Luna (75), Orpheus (93) and Harmonia (46), teens Gunnar (47) and Dione (45) and babies Hypatia (77), Azrael (12), Ollowain (56) and Kyros (78)
