So we last left this family with three birthdays in progress: Aribeth, Demetrias and Darius...so lets get back to it:
Sandy is excited to live to see another birthday...lets hope there's no visit from the Grim Reaper today.
Neil: aren't you cute Demetrius: wanna CAKE!
Darius looks kinda evil at this angle.
Esther: whhhhhhhoooooo (some more)
Aribeth: hmmmmmm, what kind of wish do I want???? hmmmmmmmmm
me: chopity-chop, girly, we're trying to move this legacy along!
me: she must have made her wish
Demetrius flies into childhood.
Demetrius: my arms came with me! Cool!
Aribeth grows up into a lovely teenager
Aren: *wolf whistle*
Darius is the last to grow up
me: nice outfit, kid, who bought you that?
Aribeth teenager (her stats will come later). A lot cuter than I thought she'd be.
Neil: I've made the best toaster bake-up...but you boys can eat some cheese and crackers.
me: Dad? Is that you? Can I have a bite of your zinger?
Oh, sorry, side tracked - back to the story.
So I wanted Sandy to explore around lots I'd never been to, so I sent her to some cemetery in the middle of the night and we ran into a bundled up vampire.
Sandy joins a bunch of night stalkers at a game of poker
Lone Man: Once I played a high stakes game on an airplane.
Bundled Vamp: did you say stake? stake? is that a threat?
Brown Hair: Vampy, don't be so sensitive...unless you want to talk about how you're wearing the EXACT same coat I am.
Sandy: I'll bet 15.
Of course, I was ELATED to find a witch join the lot.
Meet: Chloe Carlson - she's got a smile, but don't let that fool you
Sandy: . . . so, there I was playing poker and then Sim Goddess Tina cancelled that action and sent me running out here to meet you.
Chloe: I'm going to eat you
After a few minutes of chatting, the sun comes up, our Vamp friend runs away burning (I didn't include a picture) and we're joined by Vicki Seiff - who looks her evil part.
Vicki: *thinking* Nice bait, Chloe, she looks delish!
Evil Vicki immediately starts casting
Chloe: So Sandy, here's the million dollar question: can I pay you to become a witch?
Vicki: ha ha ha ha ha, I'll get that Sandy!
More evilness from both witches
Sandy fights off invisible cockroaches
(damn! I need a new graphics card!)
After some recovery time, Sandy is home and finishing all her skills - now she can die a happy woman.
me: Aribeth, what are you doing?
Aribeth: looking for something to wear. I have NO CLOTHES! All the kids in high school are gonna laugh at me.
Shelby Barrett (some random sim walking by): Gag me with a spoon! Like, oh my gosh, that Neil guy is so, like, horribly ugly. Ugh!
me: Hey, Neil? What you got there?
Neil: you'll see.
Neil: Shelby, look across the street at that Purple Tree!
Shelby: I don't see anyth...whaaaaaa
Shelby: whaaaaaat's thiiiiiiiiiissssssss!?
me: yes, Neil, what is this?
Neil: evil laugh - HEE HEE HEEE HEEEEEEEE
Neil: ooooooo, I just need that last little knowledge point
me: WHAT? you stole her knowledge!?
Neil: It'll teach her to make fun of me!
Moments after that interaction ended, the school bus pulled up with the boys.
First off is Darius.
me: How was your first day at school, Darius?
Darius: well, let me see.
me: let me guess....
me: shocker of shockers *yawn*
Darius: I don't understand.
me: it's always the same. *filing my nails*
I just loved Darius's scowl
me: so how did you do, Demetrius, or can I guess?
Demetrius: I don't understand.
me: me neither
Time to get the fun points up. Let's see how this contraption for Apartment Life does.
Demetrius: Cool! I can see the neighbors from here.
me: I guess it helps build fun, right?
Aribeth: I need to build my fun, too.
Aribeth: sit, sit, sit; wow! that's one yellow pole.
Esther helps a bewildered Demetrius
Neil helps Darius
Ian appeared just after sun down and cried that he had died. (sad)
Ian: oooogah boogah!
me: guess he realized how much fun being dead is?
Neil: oh, what a terrible memory I'll have forever now.
Ian: ha ha ha ha ha. My work here is done!
Sandy: ah! Ian!
Sandy: I saw Ian's ghost - not happy about that! Maybe I'll use his telescope to ponder the universe
Ian: Don't use my crap! Ooogah boogah!
me: jerk. what happened to nice Ian? Dude, keep it up and you'll be in that cemetary Sandy was exploring!
In the night, Ian wanders the lot and moves lamps and fills up EVERY SINGLE bathtub in the house!
Darius gets up just before sunrise to finish his homework with Aren's help.
Ian wanders by.
Ian: so this is my tombstone, huh?
Ian: well, it's time to get back to sleep...Here....
Ian: . . . . I . . .
Ian: . . .go. . .
me: guess the rest isn't so peaceful, eh?
well, this is where we'll end this for now.....spoookyyyyy!
