Miguel- Round 6- House 12

Welcome to the final house of round 6!  It's the Miguel house. Residing here are Sophie Miguel, Ripley Dreamer and Alvin Hanby, all fresh from college.

Sophie wants to flirt and tell an inside joke to Harry Oldie-Hanby, don't think her lover Ripley will like that. She also wants to hustle pool, get a job in Athletic (which incidentally is her LTW- to reach the top of that career) and to win a fight with Nathan Gavigan. Oh dear.

Ripley here wants to earn cash, and lots of it. Go swimming and generally chat up Samantha Goth.

Alvin wishes to hustle pool, have a party, chit chat with Marsha Bruenig and have his first woohoo. He's a late starter.

So Alvin threw, and had a great party (he woohooed with his college sweetheart Melanie Gregory). But Nathan didn't look like he had fun...

Ah, Sophie had thrown her drink over him. But still they are not enemies!

For several days after Ripley would summon him using her magic powers and Sophie could slap and push him around but still no option to fight and Nathan didn't stick around all that long to be honest. (Can't imagine why).
Family Sim Alvin wanted to prank Melanie, then appreciate, tell joke, yadda yadda. Eventually he rolled the want to kissy kissy, propose engagement etc. Yay.  She moved in later that day with 4K.
By next morning both Alvin and his Family orientated fiancee Melanie wanted to get married so had a party.
As the wedding arch was readily available and the house full of guests,
Sophie and Ripley joined union as well!  Ripley became a Miguel and Alvin became a Gregory- to save any confusion later down the line.
All four sims wished for a holiday and so off they went to 3 Lakes.
 Ripley fulfilled more than one sim's wish when she conjured her servant- the campsite was becoming a right mess. :D
Poor Melanie got conned by a conman.
Ripley got hugged by a big hairy man.
and Sophie is quite the axe man. :D Bet Nathan is glad he's not here.
They had fun telling scary stories around the campfire.
Back home and Ripley got her first Gold Badge.
Sophie got a magic lamp.
and Melanie got pregnant.
Melanie wants to reach the top of the Education career for her LTW. She found the job and starts after the baby is born.  Alvin took a job in Education after a friend Networked with him and got him in at a higher level than normal.
Ripley wanted to be a City Planner, but settled for the Dance career until she finds Architecture. She reached the top quickly.
As did Sophie in the Athletic career.
They decided to go and celebrate downtown.
It was a great outing except for the unfortunate incident whereby one of their Uni buddies got turned into a vampire when no-one was looking. (She's the third in this hood to be changed autonomously- Mary Gavigan was the second after Nina Caliente). This guys likes the girls' blood, heh.
On Sunday night little blond haired/blue eyed Damian makes an appearance!
Yeah, it's quite difficult to fulfill wishes when there are 6 slots! I gave it my best shot but didn't succeed everyday.
Sophie- is still waiting to kick Nathan's butt- they are enemies now. I have no idea what started the whole thing. Sophie wanted to reach top of career, earn cash, get skills for promotions as well as buying stuff. She maxed her skills and got a Silver Pottery badge.
Ripley- Having maxed her skills forever and a day ago, she's working her wishes through the bookcase of Philosophy, Anger Management etc. She spent a lot of time fishing this week as well as crafting ingredients for her spells.
Alvin- He wanted to get engaged and married- actually at one point I recall he wanted to marry both Melanie and Sophie, lol. He's been in the zone for music for some time and always spins wishes to play his violin. He maxed his skills and rolled Grilled Cheese for a secondary aspiration.
Melanie- Wished for cooking and cleaning skills, to get a job, to have a baby.
Since I had them all fish at 3 lakes they all have spun up the nature type wishes frequently. They all get chased by bees- a lot.
Damian- still a bambino. :)
Scores and stats for the end of Round 6 in Pleasantview...

End of Round 6- Thanks for sticking with it.  See you after a round of Veronaville.

Goth(2)- Round 6- House 11

Welcome to the second Goth home, where in residence are Samantha and Lucas (nee Burb) Goth. Samantha is the daughter of Cassandra and Nicholas Goth.

Initial wishes for romance sim Samantha are to fall in love and be bff's with Dustin Broke, yikes. Also to go on holiday and meet someone new.

Lucas too wishes to go on holiday, earn some money, buy some clothes and swim, as well as selling a masterpiece and maxing a skill. Whew, he doesn't want much.

I decided to send them on a belated honeymoon.
They stayed in a nice apartment at Takemizu Village.
They met some interesting locals. Lucas learnt to teleport after wishing it, and Samantha won several games of Mahjong as per her wishes.

Lucas was lucky enough to dig up a treasure chest, it would give them much needed funds for the rest of their trip.

Once home Lucas got started on his LTW to have 6 pets reach the top career level. He adopted Jack, Jill and Smudge.

Samantha wants to be a Rock God. She heard that having 5 souvenirs from the far east in a room helps boost skilling and as she didn't go to Uni (she was too busy having dates as a teen to skill!) was happy for anything to help. Lucas is busy blogging about Nature here- he rolls the wish everyday having maxed his Nature hobby in college.

The spring/summer thunderstoms soon started which upset the dogs a bit.

Smudge, who hadn't been in the house long got really scared and ran off.

Lucas reported him missing but with no collar yet doesn't hold out too much hope of finding him.

Of course there was plenty of Woohoo on the belated honeymoon, what else do romance sims wish for unless to be unfaithful?! It's the only way I could keep Samantha happy.

and all that woohoo led to a pregnancy. Samantha also wanted to plant stuff and that helped her gain a gold badge in gardening fairly quickly.

She also maxed her cooking skill.  I should mention that the dice gave Samantha Family as a secondary aspiration and so her wishes are often conflicting. At present she actually wants to have a baby and all romance wishes have gone out the window with her waistline. ;)

John Burb often calls around to see his son, and of course he's excited about becoming a grandad again.

Lucas put his degree to good use and got a job in Paranormal. You know Fortune sims, they always want the money. Plus the hours suit him with training the dogs and all. He quickly rose to the top and now only has to work 2 shifts a week.

On Thursday, two big events happened,
Smudge came back...

and Samantha had twins! Yikes. Well her brothers' are twins of course.  She had a boy and a girl, Cass and Nova. :D

It's quite hard to see here but Cass got a custom skintone- she's freckly. Weird eh Wen? ;)

Samantha was quite keen to get back to work to be honest. She found the Music career and is getting through it. She had no wishes to cuddle or play with the kids and now she has her figure back is all about meeting someone new/flirting etc.

By the end of the week Jack had reached the top of career- 1 down and 5 to go for Lucas!

The twins had a birthday.
and amongst the other things Lucas rolled one was for a toybench.

Summary;- It was handy that both Sam and Lucas wished for a vacation- I didn't really want Samantha cheating on Lucas- not yet anyway.

Samantha- to plant a seed, catch bugs, meet someone new, flirt, admire and woohoo. She now wants to teach the toddlers and sing to them. Thankfully her wishes to fall in love with Dustin disappeared when on her holiday.

Lucas- Lots of different wishes make Lucas a fun sim to play. He likes training the dogs, he wants them to get promotions and learn new skills. He's shown wishes also to teach the twins skills. Currently wants to get a bronze toy badge as well as having Jack reach the top of his career. He got his Lifetime Aspiration metre filled as well as reaching the top of the Paranormal career.

Twins Cass and Nova- still toddlers. No unusual wishes.

Bruenig- Round 6- House 10

In residence; Marsha and Beau Bruenig and their daughter Brie.

Toddler Brie had a wish to be played with/talked to/snuggled and sung with. Toddlers are so easy to please here in Pleasantview. Beau wished to train her up in her skills and set to work.

Marsha is working her way through another grilled cheese sandwich. She's eating for two now!

Marsha took time out away from her beloved cheese to tell Brie a story.
Later that day Brie grew up. She's highly neat and highly outgoing,
which pretty much means she's never going to be off the phone until she goes to college, if she goes to college.
Sometimes Marsha doesn't have the time to cook and so she just conjures up a grilled cheese sandwich. This drains her energy a lot but is useful when really hungry.
Other wishes apart from eating grilled cheese are to serve it, talk about it, influence someone else to make it and to make a sandwich for someone else.
There are very few people in Pleasantview who will talk the cheese with Marsha. Luckily the chef from Sue's Kitchen is all ears- she was there for Marsha when she ate her way through 200 of the cheesey melts.
Occasionally Marsha spins non-cheesey wishes.
Beau, the creative soul, rolled a wish for a florist bench.
He's also working his way up the Oceanography career and when not doing either of these is all things musical- play violin, dance smustle/hula/slap, dance with someone.
Their son Camembert came into the world, henceforth from this time onward to be known as Cam. :)
Desperate to find someone to talk the cheese with Marsha headed to Haute to Trot shopping centre. She bought jewellery but didn't find anyone who liked cheese.
ugh, why does everyone else in this family hate the cheese?!
Beau bagged himself a promotion and another LTW. He's not due back at work for a while so he'll be looking after the kids.
He and Cam soon made best friends.
and he had fun with Brie before settling down to help her with homework.
Marsha is in the Artist career and only works 2 days a week. She took Brie to the community lot as oddly Brie only had about 3 interests! 2 in Culture and 1 in something else. I thought this might give her some more but no.
Anyhoo, Marsha found that Priya Ramaswami was only too happy to chat the cheese, yay!
She bought a couple of magazines for Brie who now has much more to talk about with people!
Cam became a toddler and although he's got his mother's hair colour I think he looks a lot like his dad. He is 10 neat and highly outgoing.
He was taught all his skills and set about learning some more at the activity table.
Beau found time to get a silver badge in floristry this week.
On Sunday night Cam became a child. I love how the game gave him this colour outfit for daywear. Matches the colour scheme nicely! :)
Marsha found the time to shed a few pounds despite serving up endless portions of the cheese,
A fair few of which were eaten by Brie! :)
Marsha- apart from the daily cheese wishes wanted to take a bubblebath, blog about cuisine, buy clothes and be flirted with. She also sold a restaurant guide or two.
Beau- Daily wishes to dance alone, with someone, play violin and talk about hobby as well as inviting friends over. He reached his Lifetime Achievement Aspiration this week and got another Top of Career.
Brie- Wanted to invite friends over, make friends, best friends. Talk about hobby, do homework, be swung around and have a water balloon fight. She'll be a teen next time.
Cam- Usual toddler wishes, just became a child on Sunday.
