Stone. Round 8

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-04-06-80

Last round, the Stones got a parrot called Horus. Thalia gave birth to a girl, Lydia, and became pregnant again. Isaiah became a child and Kenan, Mahali and Laverna became teens.

And the Stones are the second household to unlock houses. :D

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-05-42-77

Their little hut from the inside. ^o^

And they still have their stone fridge, because I was fed up with building/looking for CC and just wanted to get to play them. XD They (hopefully) will get another one for the next round.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-06-50-56

Thalia holding her little girl, Lydia. <3

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-07-19-78

And moving into a proper house got everyone excited. =)

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-14-57-14

Dardarus and Vidya are breaking in the new double bed.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-19-23-74

Quickly followed by Jasper and Thalia. ^^”

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-19-31-53

And Horus is back. :3

(Even though he’s technically not the exact same parrot as you can’t move them with your sims. :<)

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-20-20-08

The drums are still were they used to be as well. Much to Laverna’s delight.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-21-17-31

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-21-47-45

Mahali and Lysander shared their first kiss last round in the Water household and Lysander passed by right away to spend some more time with Mahali. ^_^

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-27-51-06

Lydia <3

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-30-12-32

First pop. :3

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-30-36-30 sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-30-51-31

While Jasper is potty-training Lydia.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-18-40-03-59

Lysander being embarrassed because Dardarus goosed Vidya. XD

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-08-01-96

And it’s officially a mutual crush. :>

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-19-23-52

From this round on, the Stones are also allowed to teach Horus how to speak.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-19-35-32

Which means they can earn charisma points.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-19-41-10 sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-19-48-32

And it’s just too cute to observe Horus. <3

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-34-58-09

Laverna having a pillow fight with her oldest brother.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-41-13-52

Thalia is getting a shoot at teaching Horus, too.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-41-35-04

And Lydia is spending most of her time playing on her own.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-42-56-18

Alright… >_>

To be honest, I don’t get how none of my sims have been caught cheating, yet. XD

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-45-12-99

Isaiah’s such a cutie. He constantly goes around hugging his parents and grandparents. <3

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-45-36-52

Dardarus is really close to maxing his music enthusiasm and has 7 creativity points as well. :3

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-46-29-25sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-46-12-46

The lightning hit Pollux’s grave.

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-19-46-52-39

Poor boy. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-21-22-01-63

Second pop already. :D

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-21-22-06-19

And some more Horus spam. =P

sims2ep9-2016-08-18-21-35-52-33

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-16-04-39

When moving graves from one lot to another, they’re actually kind of “reset”. Which means all the ghosts are set as having starved. >_> Luckily, you can change a ghost’s type with the debug cheat.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-27-22-81

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-37-42-37

Thalia’s not coping too well with her pregnancy. =/

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-23-18-49

And (probably thanks to the lightning) Pollux is in a really “good” mood today. ._.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-39-03-73 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-39-22-15

Poor Kenan. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-40-36-22 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-40-47-41

And of course, Laverna went ahead and mopped up Kenan’s pee puddle.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-43-41-71

>_>

Luckily, Kenan and Mahali are good friends and Laverna’s furry passed rather quick.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-53-32-77 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-53-41-20

Grandpa Dardarus playing with Lydia. ^_^

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-57-11-33

And the second day in succession, a gravestone is hit by lightning.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-14-57-36-46

This time, it was Sophos’ grave.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-03-16-87

In the afternoon, it’s time for Thalia to give birth.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-04-29-38

The delivery did take a toll on Thalia’s health, but meet Moira, a healthy little girl. ^.^ And she has Vidya’s red hair. <3

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-18-51-82

And we have a really busy evening ahead. =/

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-19-10-86

First it’s Lydia’s birthday and she’s still in good health. ^o^

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-24-42-44

She’s really cute. <3

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-28-00-49

Now, for the not so nice part of the evening. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-28-26-65

It’s time for Vidya to leave. D:

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-28-48-61sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-29-12-07

Even if she doesn’t want to. ;_;

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-36-40-24

Poor Lydia.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-35-44-74

Vidya died at the age of 64, survived by only 6 of her 10 children and 4 grandchildren. >_<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-35-08-78 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-35-18-46

But life goes on and Jasper and Thalia are busy trying for more babies. ^_^

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-40-34-93

Rather successfully even.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-41-52-35

Which may not necessarily be a good thing, considering Thalia’s now nearly starving and the family out of food. =/

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-45-23-79

And as if that wouldn’t be enough.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-42-40-00

She’s also in a rather bad mood. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-41-09-97

At least, baby Moira is doing fine.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-48-38-73 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-48-57-82

And her father is taking good care of her.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-51-29-01

At dawn, even though Thalia’s still doing the worst, quite a few other members of the family are rather close to starving, too.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-53-33-56 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-15-53-55-34

Lydia and Isaiah are doing fine, though, and as soon as the sun is up, they go looking for berries. ^_^

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-04-13-27

And that means food for everyone. :D

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-06-04-84

Thalia still has to fight her morning sickness, though. =/

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-23-03-13

Time flies and it’s already time for Moira’s first birthday.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-23-35-44

I actually just realised that I forgot Moira’s roll for her toddler birthday. But I caught up on that now and she is doing perfectly fine. ^_^

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-28-32-39 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-29-36-74

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-21-24-08

Alright. So, with the ups and downs of the last days, Isaiah isn’t doing too well aspiration-wise. And after kicking the bin over, he actually went ahead and kicked a gravestone.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-41-10-63

Out of the five at choice, he chose of course Vidya’s. Who died the day before.

And Moira, Lydia, Laverna and Mahali were actually all afraid of someone kicking Vidya’s gravestone. >_<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-43-35-55

Look at him coming back, all proud of himself… -.-

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-42-52-84

A little interlude for Thalia’s first pop.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-46-33-13

And her not coping much better with this pregnancy than with the last. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-48-24-67

And then shit’s going down. DX

First Laverna is slapping poor Kenan’s face.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-48-37-32

And then Mahali goes full out and attacks him. D:

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-49-09-17 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-49-16-38

Laverna and Jasper are for some unknown reason both cheering for Mahali.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-49-47-26

Who’s then winning the fight she started.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-49-54-97

Which means Kenan’s death. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-51-16-15 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-51-24-37

The Stones may have had the most children, but they’re really out of luck when it comes to keeping them alive. >_<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-51-40-28 sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-52-17-74

And the Reaper is just like “Wasn’t I already here yesterday?”.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-54-49-00

Vidya surrunded by her dead sons Pollux, Sophos, Melchol, Jethro and Kenan.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-56-34-15

I’m so sorry for Dardarus, who just lost his wife yesterday and now yet another son. ;_;

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-16-58-58-35

Moreover, the household is out of food again, which affects pregnant Thalia first.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-02-55-67

But dawn came fast enough.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-05-14-30

Which means berry gathering again. And also hunting once Jasper got a little something to eat.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-08-22-43

Which may take longer than anticipated… :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-08-26-89

Because having two teens in aspiration failure on the lot isn’t going to work out.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-08-39-65

I actually missed the first few seconds of the fight, so I don’t know whether it was Mahali, who attacked, or Laverna.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-09-14-41

But in any case, Mahali’s luck has apparently worn out and Laverna wins this fight.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-13-08-48

And before the Reaper even has time to take care of Mahali…

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-11-06-49

We’ve got the next fight going on. D:

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-11-38-27

This time round, it’s Lydia and Isaiah. And I don’t know who started either.

Also, don’t mind Thalia taking a nap on the floor. >_<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-13-35-37

Lydia wins and, to be honest, I can’t really be too sad about this outcome. Considering that this whole mess is Isaiah’s fault. >_>

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-14-41-77

Back outside, the Reaper is still asking himself what’s going on in this household *cough* guiding Mahali to her afterlife. ;_;

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-19-12-11

At this point, at least half the surviving members of the household were nearly starving or otherwise need deprived, because they had no time to take care of themselves between all the fights, deaths and mourning. So I let Isaiah play for an hour, before letting him go. :<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-24-20-09

But all too soon, it was time for Isaiah to leave as well.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-24-37-03

And with his death, I really hope peace will finally return to the Stone household.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-25-18-81

The remaining family members definitely earned a few quiet days.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-26-06-42

The gravestones on the lot went from 4 to 8 during this round. Out of Vidya’s and Dardarus’ 10 children, only Jasper, Cerdric and Darmian have survived long enough to see adulthood. Though hopefully we can add Laverna to that count next round.

I can’t tell you how happy I was when the whole killing finally took an end. D:

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-27-14-27

But sadly, the family still isn’t doing well.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-37-24-28

With Isaiah and Mahali dead, Dardarus finally cracked and went into aspiration failure. And not only him. Lydia and Laverna are still deep in the red from when Isaiah kicked the tombstone, Moira was afraid of a family member dying as well and Thalia and Jasper aren’t doing much better either.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-34-19-93

Besides the aspiration problems, everyone spends so much time mourning the dead that they barely have time to take care of themselves.

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-38-49-03

Or the lot. >_<

sims2ep9-2016-08-19-17-38-56-32

Isaiah initally kicked the bin over and Lydia, Mahali and Laverna might have followed his example, so the family has cockroach plague now. And the shower was broken for a day, too. Which means a lot of weeds.

sims2ep9-2016-08-20-19-19-18-61

And then the icing on the cake: Vidya haunting the last evening of the round.

sims2ep9-2016-08-20-19-22-03-23

Thankfully, she only scared Jasper, who’s doing fairly well.

sims2ep9-2016-08-20-19-22-08-01

And is a knowledge sim. =P

sims2ep9-2016-08-20-19-24-19-23

While the situation isn’t completely under control, yet.

sims2ep9-2016-08-20-19-24-35-22

Things definitely calmed down.

sims2ep9-2016-08-20-19-30-18-01

And we are actually able to end the round with Thalia’s second pop. ^_^

sims2ep9-2016-08-22-17-16-17-44

  1. Yikes, that went south fast! O.O
    And it just shows me how much of a control freak I am in relation to having wants met. Most of my deaths by fight were people angry with each other/disliking each other.

    Like

    1. I actually try not to fulfill my sims too many wishes and let them do their own thing. But I don’t like them being in a bad mood all the time either, so I end up trying to fulfill their wishes more often than not. =P But in this case, it just went too fast. Isaiah was already nearly in aspiration failure and send 4 sims into aspiration failure at once with that stupid kick. And often when sims are in the red, they just start rolling wants that are worth a lot of aspirations points, but are difficult to fulfill. =/

      Like

      1. Gamemechanicwise, it makes sort of sense for the sim to roll wants that would give high aspiration points when they are so deep in the red. Especially “nice” when the Knowledge sims roll the “be saved from death”-wants as soon as they’re too far in aspiration failure. Suicidal, much?
