Broke- Round 8- House 4

In residence,
Brandi Broke- who was just collecting inheritance from her good friends Cassandra Goth & Dina Caliente.
Brandi's initial wishes were to max nature hobby, get Gold gardening, see relative engaged and married. Gold Gardening- completed.
Remington, former maid and Brandi's husband had initial wishes to get fit, praise and command the dogs and max body skill. 2-in-1, maxed body & got fit.
Their daughter Eliza who just moved home after graduation. Her initial wishes were to flirt with Adam, date Adam, marry Adam (are you seeing a pattern?) and give Adam a backrub.
Adam couldn't join the house after graduation as there were too many members but he came over for a date and he & Eliza fulfilled most of her wishes.
Finally Remington's alien twin sons Jules & Verne, who wished to get an A+, skill, praise and command the dogs. Jules wished to plant a seed whilst Verne wanted to be best friends with Fuller Goth. (Jules planted a seed and Verne called up Fuller- first wishes fulfilled).
One of the first things to happen the first night was for Harriett to give birth to a single puppy- Skippy. (Brandi's LTW is to raise 20, incase you'd forgotten).
Skippy is number 19.
 Currently waiting to grow up are puppies Jin & Suzi who still have several days to go.
Remington had a wish to stargaze, which always makes me nervous since poor Nicole Thompson- ex girlfriend of Alexander Goth, got crushed by a satellite when they went to college together.
No such drama here.
The twins bought fellow twins Juan & Marco Lothario home from school. Brandi wished to serve food and so made a Berry Pie for the boys to share.
Eliza is still looking for a job in Journalism- her LTW to become a Media Magnate is on hold until the job appears.
Oops she had an accident when Maxx the ghost-dog came out to haunt. That'll be fuel for the neighbourhood gossips!
The twins became teens. Jules (in green) rolled Pleasure and his LTW is '50 1st dates'. *Twoyys gnashes teeth*.
Jules initial wishes are to buy a handheld/cellphone/mp3 player and ask sim on a date.
Verne is a Family sim with a LTW to become Captain Hero, his initial wishes are for a first kiss, to buy handheld/cellphone/mp3 player.
They went to a community lot where they bought cellphones and had a game of pool with Michelle the store clerk and Wednesday Fuller- fellow Family sim and best friend of Verne, and incidentally a 3 bolt attraction of his.
The boys rolled college wishes and so I had them skill each time they wished it.
Brandi was no slacker either and she finally put her old career reward to good use by maxing the cleaning skill.
When Suzi grew up, she was adopted out.

Eliza, who had enjoyed a few dates with Adam, one of which saw them engaged, chose to strike while the iron was hot and threw a wedding party. Being a 3-bolt couple made my decision to put them together and you can see how Eliza lusts after her hubby.
They're a goofing around kind of couple.
A nice family shot of Eliza & her new husband Adam, Eliza's mum & dad, (Brandi & Remington) and her alien half-brothers' Jules & Verne.
Their party went on until late, and was one of the few that didn't get broken up by cops. Adam enjoyed catching up with his sister Amaya, he hadn't seen her since he was at college.
Jin grew up, with Skippy watching on and was sent off for adoption.
Both twins' college wishes were still around and so they gained some scholarships and headed off to the dorm. Now empty since the sad demise of Rico Caliente but ready for a new start.
Brandi took the opportunity to adopt Bingley Caliente who should be her 20th pet.
She grew up the next day, but little Skippy has more days on his clock and so Brandi will have to wait!
Eliza found her job and started high level due to her degree, she got her LTW after just two shifts. Perma plat here we go. Brandi decided to throw a party to cement all her friendships.
Finally Skippy grew up and Brandi completed her LTW! The first sim in my game to ever do so.
Whew- hard work. :D
and just in time too! Brandi passed away later that day aged 80 years!
She had a pretty good life compared to how she started and certainly flashed the cash in inheritance.
On Sunday night Remington threw a party to cheer himself up, sort of a wake for Brandi really where he managed to invite all her sons and families. Of course being a Family sim he wants to fall in love so Kaylynn here was invited in as a passer by. I recall how her and Remington are quite compatible but nothing happened as yet.
Great week at the Broke's. I can't believe I completed Brandi's LTW during her natural lifetime. My original plan was to breed all the puppies but I had to resort to 3 adoptions to finish it off.
Brandi had got in the zone in nature this week as well as gaining her Gold in gardening. She was a nice sim to play.
Remington likes to skill, serve food and throw parties. Will he find love again and if so how much time will he have left?
Eliza and Adam- I couldn't resist putting them together, they did throw themselves together in college anyway. I forget what Adam's LTW was- I wonder if he'll stay faithful to his wife though?
We'll catch up with Jules & Verne in college soon.



  1. yay, that is a tuff LTW to win. I may have to do that for Brandi as well. I finally realized with Coral Oldie the way to get it done "quickly" was through adoption. Good job!

    1. Yes I'm going to breed as many as I can to send to the pound as kittens/puppies ready for the next time someone has the wish!

  2. Congrats for having Brandi's difficult LTW fulfilled!!! She has the same one in my game but I doubt she'll make it... We'll see.
    I've so far never had a satellite crash in my game, but then again I have not that many Sims who do a lot of stargazing or cloud watching.
    Loved this round, and especially the picture of pretty Eliza lusting after her hubby :-D

    2. So nice to get Brandi's wish fulfilled.
      I've only ever had 2 satellite deaths, I only let them stargaze briefly to fulfill the wish, I never have them cloudwatch. (although the satellite itself gives you loads of money for selling it) ;)
      I think Eliza & Adam will be fun to play.

  3. Whew, nice job reaching the LTW. I thought 20 pet best friends was hard....well it wasn't easy, but this would be really tough too. I dislike the pet LTW. Eliza's face in that wedding shot was awesome. A pretty wedding. I kind of wish you had some family trees so I could keep track of who all the kids below too. :)

  4. Yes, think it's the first time I've reached that LTW. It was hard and probably equally as hard as getting 20 pet best friends I should imagine.
    Eliza is one of my favourite Sims, she loves a laugh.
    I will try and do family trees in round 10! :D
