Dreamer- Round 8- House 5

Welcome back to the Dreamer house, wherein reside;
 
Lilith & Dirk. Lilith's initial wishes were to get fit, woohoo, hula dance, slap dance, make friends with Marylena & Bruce.
Dirk's were to woohoo, have Lyka go to college, earn some money, blog about tinkering and arts & crafts and talk to Leaf. First wish fulfilled for both - woohoo.
 
Their youngest daughter Lyka who's a teen. Initial wishes to go out/sneak out with Marco Lothario, go to college and play bass. First wish fulfilled- play bass.
 
Finally Adam, eldest son who just came home after graduation. His LTW is to be top of the Gamer career- he didn't find his job so took the first he found which was in Science. Initial wishes to Earn 75K, get fit, tell inside joke and get kitten/puppy and resurrect Darren  First wish fulfilled- tell inside joke.
 
I'm not controlling Dirk or Lilith so much now they are permaplat. Dirk enjoys spending time with his elder dog Jacques, who was resurrected last round, and his pet cat Daley.  His wishes revolve around hobbies/ tinkering and arts and crafts and he often strolls to the pc to browse the internet for both.
 
Popularity with a hint of Pleasure sim Lilith can often be found jumping on the settee. Old she may be, but never mature.
 
Dirk decided to activate one of his Servo's that he found in his backpack. This is a female called Dream1E. Like Dirk she is a Fortune sim and so far has just shown wishes to buy me! buy me! Her LTW is to earn 100K and so she took a job in Business.
 
The other robots are still doing their thing and it's handy having a cleanbot when someone comes and kicks over the trash. Lots of people are mad with Lilith- I think it's because she often teases and pranks sims whilst on community lots when I'm playing other houses.
 
Like she cares? haha.
 
As spring arrives so does the wish for parties. Lilith invited all her old college buddies as well as her eldest daughter Lily & her partner Blade. Check out Angela giving Alexander a backrub.
 
Yep- spring is in the air- and so is Darren's ghost. :)
 
Lyka got to the top of her teen career and bagged another scholarship. She often brought a friend home from work,
 
and school,
 
and when she brought Randy London home, she rolled the wish to go steady, and so now they are teen sweethearts.
 
Once you see past the piles of trash from the broken cleanbot you can see Daley the cat has earned himself a good pile of cash reaching the top of career.
 
After reaching the top of the Science career Dean went into another one- Education I think. What is he, his friend Leaf and Dream1E shouting at?
 
tut- you bring home a friend and they steal your gnome!
Lilith will go steal it back later, she always does. :)
 
Lyka made 10 best friends this week, now she wants 30. Popularity Sims!
 
When left to her own devices Lilith plays the bass. Nice of Dirk to tip her!
 
When left to his own devices Dirk decides to pet a skunk. Enough said.
 
Apart from working I had Dream1E start making robots, it stops her making endless plates of food. She also enjoys playing with the pets.

Lyka rolled wishes several times to go out/ sneak out with Marco Lothario and so she did one night.

Lilith threw another party where she invited friends rather than family. Nice to keep the friendships going.

We say two farewell's this week. One to Jacques who was resurrected last round and so enjoyed a bonus week at the house.

and Lyka, who has gone to join the Broke twins in college!
 
Summary,
 
Dirk- Apart from woohoo, blogging and interacting with other sims I didn't direct him at all- he does financial consulting at the pc, browses the internet and tips when someone plays all by himself.

Lilith- I had her make the friendships she wanted, voodooed one when she wished for it and threw the party. Other than that she plays music, dances to music and jumps around on the settee.

Dean- The cowplant was still in need of milking after its last victim (the teen Ricky Cormier from about round 4) and so I had Dean drink it- in hindsight I should've had Lyka do it before she went to college. I haven't decided what to do with Dean- he worked 2 jobs before he found Gamer on Sunday.

Lyka- a good week of skilling, friendship building and scholarships, she snuck out, went steady and went to college.

Dream1E- she's a free maid, but irritating in serving food a lot when only one sim is hungry.

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.
 
 
Summary,
 
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.
