Post number five for SimNaWriMo! So close to that shiny silver medal, and halfway to the gold! I have enough pictures to go up to post 1.15, which is my 9th post, plus an heir poll!
That’s right folks, generation five is coming to a close in four/five posts time (which is really two posts by normal posting standards, I guess) – do you know who you’re going to vote for yet?
Remus: Oh the weather outside is frightful… but the fire is so delightful… and since we’ve no place to go…
Sirius: LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW.
I realise now how terrible this picture is, but the side balcony got an upgrade! Ginny will be a teen somewhen soon and she has the athletic trait, so I thought I’d let Lyra’s legacy continue with some training equipment.
And the pool with many ladders is back!
Mia: Ooh, this game is much easier now that little girl has hacked it! I don’t know why we never thought of it in my day.
Cute Sirius is cute.
Look at this fucking ridiculous dog. He’s perfect for Remus.
Ginny is the other person who seems to really like him, though I’m not sure why she’s playing with the dog in her formalwear.
Martin: Remus, do you ever take that hat off?
Remus: No. I sleep in it.
I actually used to know a guy like that. Never ever took his beanie off.
Bubbles: Look at this. They all ran off to school and work, and left me with half eaten breakfasts to clean up.
Bubbles: I think I’m going to rant about this.
Bubbles: I LOVE MY HUSBAND! I LOVE MARTIN GORDON SO MUCH!
Ranting about breakfast went well, then?
Bubbles: Here I am now ignoring my responsibilities by flying around. Who said I have to do the chores anyway?
And this is about the time that things started to go horribly wrong for Bubbles. Have some spam.
Bubbles: This wasn’t exactly how I planned it.
Bubbles: I will make this stupid jetpack work. It can’t be that hard!
She makes some great faces, and I love her so much.
Bubbles: Tadaah! I did it!
Sirius: I brought you something.
Sirius: WOOF WOOF TAKE THE PAPER.
Bubbles: Uh.. thanks?
Bubbles: Good dog!
Remus is nearly to YA and has rolled the wish to adopt another dog; I’m gonna do it – this is so cute.
Remus: Come on Sirius, you know this one. Sit up.
Luna: Raven? Did you want to come over to, uh, hang out?
Harry: Look at you fools, thinking about relationships when you could be thinking about fame. I can’t believe I’m related to you two.
Remus: Don’t worry Sirius, I’m not sure why Harry thinks I’m in a relationship with my dog, but I will find love one day.
Isn’t he pretty??
Martin: Hello children!
Remus: SIT UP, GODDAMNIT.
Luna: We have a pool – okay scratch that, it’s winter. We have a nice fire you could sit by, or a balcony with nice views?
HE DID IT!
Luna: She didn’t want to come over so I figured I’d best write her a love letter, just to prove that I’m serious.
Looking at that face, I can see why she didn’t want to come over.
Luna: So, Raven… What do you think now?
Raven: I’ll come over if it gets you to stop calling me.
Remus: Sirius, you just did it! Why have you suddenly forgotten again!?
Luna, your date is here.
Luna: This is a very intense game, she’ll have to wait.
None of the pieces have even moved.
Luna: Raven, you’re looking very pretty today…
Raven: Go on…
Somehow I don’t think that’s what she meant by ‘go on’, Luna.
But it was accepted! Do Sims ever drop each other in the dip kiss, or are all of mine just super smooth?
Ginny casually photobombing Luna asking Raven to be her girlfriend…
Don’t talk with your mouthful.
Ginny: I’m gonna ask that paparazzi for a bedtime story, seeing as everybody else is otherwise engaged.
I bought a dart board! I don’t think anybody’s used it since I bought it, but I’m sure that will change eventually…
Also, Luna does her homework at 5am before school.
Luna: Dad, it’s like 5am. Why are you up already?
Martin: … Maybe I should go to bed. I can’t feel my fingers.
Turns out Raven spent the night in a sleeping bag on the balcony. Because that’s the kind of thing you do after somebody asks you to be their girlfriend.
I don’t use the future features as much as I should, and given that Martin is level 10 in the future skill I thought this would be a fun way to test them!
Martin: Fancy going for a fly, my dear?
Bubbles: Oooh, a jetpack ride with somebody who knows what they’re doing? Yes please!
