This is a loong post, people. Prepare yourselves! About 100 images, which is around 20 over my normal post length so… Coffee at the ready!?
Recap; My simself threw a costume party that everyone attended in hideous costumes, Lily and Mia became teens, Mia started practising ballet, Michael started practising martial arts, everyone went to prom where Dawn was glitched out on the steps, the adults went on a free holiday, Mia skipped school to throw eggs at my simselfs house, then Lily threw a party, Michael finally tracked down Sonia and got a girlfriend, Kenny got confused about which girl should be his girlfriend, and Mia also got a girlfriend!
Peter: Mia, what’s with that obvious false grin?
Mia: False grin? What false grin? The house is in perfect condition, thank you!
Peter: Um… Okay then!
Finally, we have a respectable portrait of Lyra to go above her table! Mia’s finally leveled high enough to paint still life, and who needs this ‘paint portrait’ nonsense!?
Kenny: Hey Mia, wanna go do the dishes? We have homework to do.
Mia: What did your last slave die of!?
Mia: I’m amazed you even know what that means.
Michael: I don’t. Kenny said it.
Kenny: Soo… we go to school together?
Sierra: I literally sit right next to you.
Amy is so pretty…
Mia: I know!
These two constantly do autonomous shit like this, it’s both disgusting and adorable.
Kenny and Sierra go off for a romantic photo together…
While Michael tracks down his own girlfriend.
Hey, Sonia! The 60s called, they want their hairdo back!
Amy: So, do you wanna go get our photo taken and then get out of here?
Mia: Of course!
Sierra: God damnit Kenny, just kiss me!
Kenny: Your wish is my command.
I’m still not over this animation okay.
These two are adorable too! What is wrong with me, everyone is so happy all of a sudden!
Aw, now Kenny has a girlfriend too! Wait, that makes all of them. While still in teens!
Lily: I think you’re forgetting someone…
Who, the Charlie’s Angel Wannabes?
And then as night began to fall, our disgusting couples began to dance…
Have some dance pictures!
These are the pictures they took! Sonia and her 60s hair kind of ruins their picture, and Lily is clearly just waving goodbye as she knows she’s not eligible for heirship and will be ejected into the time stream almost immediately.
Oh, and these are their prom pictures! Very original, guys.
I’m also betting that Mia’s was after Kenny’s, given that he knocked the backdrop down while chasing after his ‘crush’.
Michael: Hey, what are you doing hitting on my cousin!?
Lily: We’re second cousins. And it’s fine, Michael.
Michael: You leave her alone, you hear me!?
Michael: YOU HEAR ME!?
I don’t think he can hear you over the sound of you breaking his face…
Michael: Now get out, and don’t come back!
Lily: Feel better now?
What is going on in this awful, loved-up house!?
Kenny: Sierra, your face is so beautiful…
Mia: We should work out together, Amy.
Time for our FIRST PARTY!
Everyone gathers around, eagerly awaiting the arrival of family and friends…
Livy: *is pregnant and heartfarts Michael*
Old Man Brendan: *has the worst fashion sense*
Why do I even bother?
Peter: Yes, a good present!
Michael: I don’t know who you are, lady, but you’re pregnant and I’m a minor.
May: I don’t even know what this is and I need to go collapse from exhaustion now!
Lily: Ooh, a box full of confetti, just what I’ve always wanted! Maybe I can suffocate Michael with it…
Kenny: Hey, let’s dance and bond over our dislike of my brother.
Kenny: Oh god what the hell are you doing?
Lily: You said dancing, right?
Michael: DON’T MIND ME JUST SHUFFLING IN ON YOUR PRIVATE CONVERSATION.
Mia: Just bust a move!
Lily: And you thought my dancing was bad…
Kenny: She’s supposed to be a ballerina..
Mia: You know what, that’ll do.
Yeah, it’s good enough.
Ella: Oh great, you’re still around.
Elisha: Where am I supposed to go?
Ella: Into the netherworld, and stay there. Permanently.
Elisha: I’m already dead, what more do you want!?
Eli: My god, this house really has gone to shit hasn’t it? What on earth is this drivel that the so-called Author is writing now!?
It’s called evolution. Keep up!
Peter: Hey, ghost lady, I have a question for you.
Lori: If you come near me, so help me God.
Peter: What do you think of plants?
Lori: I think you’re a sad little man and you need to leave the children alone.
Amy: *appears from an igloo in her bikini*
Peter: *immediately ambushes Amy* So, what do you think of plants?
Amy: I think my brain has frozen. Please try again later.
Livy: Done! What do you think of my snowman?
Lori: That’s just a giant snowball.
Livy: Don’t insult him!
Amy: Hey, you have a really nice house! Do you mind if I stay here forever?
Amy: When will my life begin?
She looks so empty…
Lily: SNOW DAAY!!!
Way to ruin the mood.
Mia: Woohoo, snow day!!
Since remembering to turn on the weather effects this is their first snow day! And I hate to say that nothing particularly interesting happened.
Mia: I’ll give you interesting!
That was Lily’s snow angel! The poor duck is already living in a state of grumpy hopelessness, why make it worse!?
Mia: Because I can.
Michael: I was fighting for a purpose, see? To help me train to be THE VERY BEST.
You’ve been talking to your mother too much…
Lyra: I like this one. Keep her.
Amy: Who are you talking to?
Lyra: I’m not even going to tell you Amy, you’ll find out soon enough.
Kenny: Hey, I finally got the telescope I wished for as a kid! Also, look at my new star called Boris!
May: So anyway, here’s Wonderwall…
I FINALLY CAUGHT THE PERSON SETTING ALL THE BOOBY TRAPS!
Of course it would be Kenny.
Kenny: Hey, I’m just here at the same time as it is. This wasn’t my fault.
Oh, Lyra’s made it to level 9 of her career already. She gets a promotion damn near every time she goes to work, it’s incredible.
Lyra: I’m incredible.
The image of Lyra meditating in visors will forever be ingrained in my memory.
I’m beyond confused.
Kenny: I just discovered another star called Tina!
Michael: Do you think I could write my essay on it?
Kenny: Ooh, can you throw Boris in there too! And my Planet Lana!?
Planet Lana… help us all.
Lily: I’m tired and hungry, anybody who comes near me is going to get it.
JOEL!! How long has it been since this guy made an appearance!?
Joel: I was too embarrassed to show my face, if we’re going to be totally honest.
School starts in an hour and a half, but Amy’s ringing her for a chat already.
They’re so gross.
Wait, Mia, what’s that’s in the oven?
Mia: Can’t you shut up, I’m on the phone?
May: Guys, I think the house is about to be on fire…
May: LYRA THAT’S NOT HOW YOU PUT OUT A FIRE!
Kenny: MOTHER WHAT THE HELL!?
Peter: That is kind of creepy.
Lyra: I am so done with this shit.
Lyra: So. Freaking. Done.
Lyra: I’m just going to dissociate from all of you and become a bird.
Lyra: Or maybe a plane!
Good to know she’s still as flexible as she was as a kid, right!?
Lyra: Time to set up the buffet in the most awkward of places and watch everyone route fail as they try to get to it!
I think something inside Lyra broke during that last fire…
Lyra: The party doesn’t start for another hour, what are you doing here?
Sierra: I saw that my Kenny skipped school, I wondered if he was sick!
For a generated NPC (she doesn’t have any family), she’s actually really pretty.
Dawn arrives, followed shortly by Worst Dressed old man Brendon, and May’s ex!
What a great party this is shaping up to be(!)
Michael: Who are all these people and could they please get out of the way?
May: Excuse me! Coming through! I’ve got trouble to cause!
Wilfred: Oh no.
The amount of sass in this picture…
In fairness, the woman was trying to heckle somebody.
May: Okay so I know we technically never broke up, but I kicked you out of my house! Was that not message enough for you!?
Wilfred: You kicked me out? I though I just left.
May: You’re the worst. Please leave.
Brendon: LOL public break up!
Anthony: Why won’t this door open any faster!?
Speaking of doors that open faster, will Kenny’s girlfriend get into the party cabin in time to watch him age up!?
Kenny: I wish…
Lily: I wish this was already over.
There are so many people crammed into this one tiny room… I feel like this is somewhat a design error, but cannot bring myself to admit the party cabin sucks. So clearly it’s their fault.
Sierra: Oh my god what happened to you!?
Kenny: It’s fashion, baby.
Kenny: I’ve got my cake, I’m out of here.
How many family members have done that now? Just stayed for one birthday and then run away with cake? Show some respect, Michael is technically the eldest!
Michael: I’m safe, thank god.
Yep, Kenny got a hilarious makeover and Michael looks basically the same. Kenny also rolled ‘Party Animal’ to go into his horrible mishmashed traits, and Michael rolled Disciplined which conflicts horribly with ‘Slob’, but I don’t care because this means I could pick the Martial Arts Master LTW! Kenny already had Chess Legend locked in.
Kenny: Is everyone seeing my fabulous hair? Really highlights my ears!
Also that’s Shalonda Langurd that Anthony is dancing with. Shalonda being Lev’s eldest child, and also Lyra’s boss.
Immediately after the party, I found these two watching the stars together completely autonomously. I love it. I love them.
Amy: I think that’s our star, there.
Mia: No, that’s Ray the firefly.
Michael: Mother, would you spar with me?
Lyra: Of course. But not right this second, as Mia is currently in the way.
Michael: Oh for godsake.
Lyra: We bow to each other, Michael. Come, the niceties must be observed… Lori would like you to show manners… Bow to your mother, Michael…
Lyra won, 2-0.
Mia: No surprises!
Seriously, what is it about Amy!? Everybody loves her and wants to talk to her all the time!
Kenny: So, did you hear I discovered a new planet?
Percy, and I also heard you named it Lana.
She still slides down the stairs… I’m so happy 😀
Lyra: Who needs to go to work when it’s my BIRTHDAY!?
At this point I realised something was wrong.. Peter was about five days from elder, May four days from Adult, and Lyra now an Adult. I guess something must’ve screwed up when I moved the save over and reinstalled everything, so at some point I think I’ll just age Lyra and May up to elder, as I’m pretty sure they should be by now.
Kenny: Ah, no children are home, time to skinny dip.
Peter: Don’t turn round, naked son’s butt behind you.
He was very quickly corrected from that, and instead invited over a ranked chess opponent to play against.
I then built a gym for our athletes to train in.
Basically, I figured it was about time Mia stopped doing ballet in the living room and Michael stopped doing Sim Fu in the snow outside.
Okay guys, it’s that time again. Two heirs are now YA so it’s voting time!
Face Clone Kenny has the Chess Legend lifetime wish, Martial Arts Michael has the Martial Arts Master lifetime wish, and (SPOILER) Mia has the Master Acrobat lifetime wish!
If you need a recap of traits head to the Gen Four page which I believe is now fully updated!
