First wish fulfilled= woohoo

First wish fulfilled- talk to Carter.
 
Blade (son of Stella and Dustin)- Have a baby, resurrect Regina, buy a fire alarm, Tulip gets an A+, Resurrect Alexander Goth.

First wish fulfilled- woohoo.
 
Leaf (Plantsim son of Dustin). Be bf's with Matthew Picaso, Harry is cured of Werewolfism, hustle pool, meet someone new.
First wish fulfilled- Made best friends with Matthew.
 
Rowan- (child of Blade & Lily)- talk about hobby, gain skill level 7 in body, 9 in cooking, gain any skill.
First wish fulfilled- level 7 body.
 
Tulip (alien child of Blade)- get skill, be friends with Pluto, tell a joke to Barnabas Broke, Be best friends with Graham.
First wish fulfilled- gain a skill.
 
Cats in residence are Kim and Fitz.
 
Of course it's a long list of wishes that inevitably roll away once you fulfil one to be replaced by something new. :D
Stella is getting inheritance. I forgot to note who from but lots of her original buddies died this round.
 
After Woohoo daylight broke and Lily shuns the sun.
She got bitten autonomously whilst I played another household if you recall.
 
That's all well and good but as it's rotational play I don't really want my sims living forever unless they get bitten twice (my unwritten rule).
Blade called up for some Vamprocilin which he gifted to his wife.
 
That's better. I do very much like Lily and she is a pretty sim, so should she get bitten again at some point she will stay a vampire forever. :)
 
All the Sims in the house are very sociable and spend hours talking with friends.
Here Rowan and his Grandpa Dustin chat away on their mobile phones.
 
 Tulip is more studious and spends hours skilling from the bookcase.
 
Leaf became an old PlantSim. Mr Popularity himself enjoyed quite a few dates in his youth but never had the urge to settle with anyone. His favourite date Nancy of course married Nova Goth when we visited his house just recently.
 
The children look to their grandparents for homework help.
 
Later Grandpa Dustin tells them a story and tucks them into bed.
 
While the rest of the house sleeps Leaf spends his nights training the cats and writing in his diary if he's not off on an outing somewhere.
 
Looks like Lily and Blade are expecting their second child together.
 
Blade reached the top of the Science career. He decided to put his degree to good use and switched to the Natural Science career.
Young Rowan bought a new friend home from school every day.
 
Stella organised an outing Downtown and invited Dustin and her former college buddies.
 
Dustin loves to sing a Sea Chantey and makes everyone join in.
 
You're never too old to smustle. :D
 
A new visitor to the lot is William Williamson, new graduate to Pleasantview.
 
Blade put his voodoo doll to work and instantly made a friend.
 
Later Blade took Lily out for a date. For some reason he never got changed out of his swimwear before leaving the lot, which made Mrs Crumplebottom lecture him constantly, which made him queue drop everything I told him to do. Very annoying.
 
It only took a couple of days for Blade to rise through the ranks to reach the top of his career.
 
He and Lily welcomed their second son Ash to the world. Everyone welcomes the newest sweetie.
 
Of course not everything he did was so sweet. :D
 
On Friday it was time to say farewell to Kim the kitty.
 
Followed later that same day by the passing of Stella. She was 80 and lived a very happy life with Dustin. How sweet that her final thoughts were of him.
 She left inheritance to 23 people and was a much loved figure in the neighbourhood.
 
As if the day wasn't busy enough young Ash became a toddler as well.
 
Dustin was devastated by the loss of his Stella but threw himself into amusing and caring for his Grandchildren.
 
He wished to and adopted a new kitten called Kitty.
 
On Saturday Rowan became a teen. He rolled Fortune and has a Lifetime Wish to be a Hall of Famer.
Initial wishes were to Resurrect Stella, be best friends with Tulip, Go to college, win a scholarship.
 
He asked Grandpa Dustin to make him a new outfit and soon showed off his new look.
 
Rowan met one of the Oldie-Hanby twins walking by.
 
and fulfilled several Sims' wishes when he gained a scholarship for college.
 
On Sunday Tulip turned teenager and rolled Popularity. She has a Lifetime Wish to be a Mad Scientist which doesn't really tie in with her aspiration but does fit in nicely with her personality.
 
I'm not sure if this is quite the way to become her best friend Rowan!
 
Last picture of the week is Dustin and Ash making best friends.
 
Summary.
 
First of all, bye bye Stella. She's always been one of my favourite Sims to play.
 
I'm really surprised and pleased that Dustin is hanging on for another week! His age bar is all the way to the end so I expected him to go but be it a day or two left in the house we'll see him lots no doubt during the round before we come back here for Round 11!
 
Ending wishes,
 
Dustin- plant seed, make pottery, meet someone new, see rain, Rowan gets a scholarship, Tulip gets a scholarship.
 
Blade- Rowan gets a scholarship, Tulip gets a scholarship, talk about hobby, make pottery, flirt, ask sim on date.
 
Lily- Talk about hobby, blog about fitness, blog about nature, go hiking, flirt, max nature hobby.
 
Leaf- Kiss, flirt, meet someone new, give love to Fitz.
 
Rowan- Go swimming, talk about hobby, earn cash, go to college.
 
Tulip- Ask Sim on date, max Body skill, play with Kitty, talk to Kitty.
 
Ash- Grow up well, talk to, play with and be snuggled by Lily.

Uni Update- Round 10- Halfway Point

So we're halfway through the round and it's time for a Uni update.
 
Currently in Uni are Cam Bruenig, Val & Tina Lothario, Morgan Goth and Damian Gregory.
 
I'm also playing Francis J Worthington as he is in love with Tina Lothario.  I used the Tombstone of L&D to change Francis' name back to the correct spelling as it was bugging me. :D
 
Cam is almost graduated and spends his last few days at the dorm skilling up and having outings with his friends.
 
He threw a graduation party and set off back to Pleasantview where he moved straight in with Blossom Moonbeam who he fell in love with before she graduated.
 
Whilst at a gathering at Francis J's place Morgan Goth and the Cow Mascot got very friendly but here she always gets zapped by the securitybot and he has no chance of getting to know her better because of this.
 
Instead he set his sights on someone more accessible, experienced and who was slightly less sleazy. Following his wishes he and Professor Ally Kimbrell were engaged.
 
Damian was in his last year at the start of this play and invited his family around. His dad Alvin was the adopted son of Lucy Hanby and is half brother to Harry Oldie Hanby.
 
Damian got his gold badge in Gardening.
 
Being more studious than some of the others he had no wish for a party and so grew up right there in his beloved college garden. He headed back home.
 
Francis J had some quality play (easier with 1 sim!) and won a cooking competition.
 
He had a wish for a vacation and so I used up most of his money on this one.
 
He got lucky and won 1000 simoleons which helped toward the cost.
 
When he got home he completed several skills and a badge or two in Floristry. He also got in the zone at Sue's (Secret) Kitchen.
 
Fun loving Val mainly had wishes to date, hula, dance, blog and play darts. Pretty much every day.
 
Because she dated all of her housemates at least 2 of them found each other out and fight all the time. :D
 
It was a little easier if she dated off lot but not always. :)
 
Campell Goth was only too pleased to date and enjoyed the college house as he never got to go in his youth.
 
Val's twin Tina also loved to dance, make pottery, talk about hobby, sew a project and garden.
 
She took over from Damian as resident Gardener. I like to keep the juicer filled for an easy skill or boost of energy when required.
 
 Here the twins talk about their hobbies whilst Holden jumps on his enemy.
 
The ghost of Rico Caliente (son of Nina) has been out a lot this week and scared everyone at least once.
 
Everyone loves to socialise and when they aren't chatting on their phones they invite friends over. Here is Tina chatting with the remaining greek house girls.
 
The week ends at Francis J's party. He has lots of friends too and must encourage that Secret Society member to change out of her graduation gown, usually influencing them to 'bathe' does the trick.
 
 
Summary,
 
At Francis J's the time flies quickly and while I started playing him after the dorm he's almost caught up and should graduate next time with the Twins who are in Senior year now.
 
It seems no one has joined college for some time, I guess no one had the wish for it during the first half of this round.
 
Next update will be at The Terrano house.
