Em, nice picture of Franco in the shower!

I'm having so much fun seeing our simselves show up once in awhile.

I'm missing that, myself. I got a kick of seeing it in Isle of Demeter. I may take a break from the Offspring Project after a while and play Isle of Demeter for a bit. I'm not ready to do that yet, though.

Ramon and Portia went on for the longest time fighting over whose turn it was and neither one would back down. She stood there as he shooed her, then he stood there as she shooed him. Who knows how long they would have gone one if I hadn't stepped in and sorted it out for them.
Quote :
I should not have given him romance as a secondary aspiration and gave him that massive attraction bonus. He did not need it.
Quote :
Another time, Francesca beats them both to it. Do you think the punch you/ punch me is their way of passing the time or their way of deciding who gets the bathroom next?
Quote :
One day she headed outside intending to have her first kiss with Dante, but since he was too busy hanging out with his brother, she kissed one of the townie neighbors instead.
Quote :
She was walking to work, fashionably late

I really hope those kids are playing punch you/punch me in order to decide who gets to use the bathroom. I also love Francesca walking right past the bathroom fight and taking her turn first.

It's a good thing Angelica is persistent and was able to do a successful makeover on that poor man. I remember when Sugah got a bad makeover in Isle of Demeter. affraid

It's been awhile since I've played, but I need to go through my snapshots folder and see what else I have to share. I still have a lot of catching up to do.

I had a couple of tragic moments in my game play.  Here, some random townie got stuck on the corner of my apartment lot, where I didn't pay much attention.  When he died it was quite a to-do.  



His ghost came back and scared Johannes (by Ulli), scaring him to death three times in a row. Luckily, his friend and roommate Adam was able to save him each time.  After that I sent the grave to a community lot so the ghost wouldn't bother anyone anymore.  



Tragedy also struck at Ciara's apartment.  She started bringing this guy from work with her.



Apparently, he got stuck in the backyard, playing Adam's musical instruments after everyone went to bed and died.  But even after he died, Ciara kept bringing him home from work.  I would get the message that she was bringing him home with her, but he never actually showed up.  I ended up sending his gravestone to a community lot too.



Romance is in the air for Tempest and her daughter, Rain.  Rain becomes best friends with Dante and they have a first kiss.  (This is just a greeting kiss, but the picture turned out better than the first kiss pic.  I was late on the C button)



I wanted to encourage Ciara and Adam to be a couple, but when I moved them in together, Adam was rejecting Ciara in favor of Tempest next door, so I decided it would be for the best to move him back with Johannes and the other single guys for awhile.



I started sending Tempest on date to fulfill her wants and to see if that would help her choose who she wanted to be with.  It worked.  I set her up with a guy named Jayden Heartbreaker from a house of single guys I added in for our simselves to befriend in a earlier version of the Sidekick project.  They had triple bolts.  After fulfilling both of their wants to woohoo in the bed and then in the car, they both wanted to get engaged to each other.  Can't pass up someone who shares those mutual wants, apparently.  Tempest popped the question and Jayden moved in that night, but as of the last time I played, they still haven't married.  They seemed content with just being engaged.



She has been a one-man woman since their engagement, rejecting advances from old flames and others . . .



I was worried about Rain and Kieran forming a romantic relationship as teens when I saw them as having a brother-sister relationship.  Luckily there was no problem there, but I didn't think I'd have to worry about Kieran and Tempest (his surrogate aunt)!  As soon as he became a teen he tried to have his first kiss with his mother's best friend.  Luckily she had the good sense to turn him down and I quickly friend-zoned them, before he would do something stupid like try it again.



Since he's a romance sim, I thought I'd better set him up with someone more appropriate, so we called the matchmaker for a blind date.  A college student, for a young teen, was not what I had in mind.



Portia, on the other hand, was an appropriate choice and Kieran finally got his first kiss.



I thought Sugah was going to go over and lecture them for messing around in a public photobooth, but she just stopped by to introduce herself.   laughin   I kind of like it that after my teens go on dates one of the parents calls the other party as a new contact and invites them to hang out sometime.   laughin Either Raymie or Franco called Kieran after their date.  And I think the other one called the date of one of the other children after they went out.



It's hard to keep up relationships along with families and careers.  So when I started getting messages about siblings, Ava and Drake's, relationship dropping, I started inviting them and their families to each others' houses so they and their kids could keep in touch and get to know each other.  It didn't go so well.  Ava and her family tended to keep to themselves and Drake and his family kept to themselves.  



Here are a couple of random shots of kids bringing home good grades that I thought were really cute.  I don't recall any teens being quite as excited about grades as Frances and Connor were.

First off, I'm going to be sorry when this thread goes to the next page and I no longer "have" to scroll past Franco in the shower to get to the newest post.

I'm glad it was a townie who died on the apartment lot, but it sure was hard on Johannes, wasn't it? Adam is a very good and dedicated friend. And poor Ciara, in denial about the death of her co-worker, pretending to bring him home with her day after day.

Rain and Dante look like a cute couple, sharing a sweet kiss.

It's nice that Tempest is so faithful; I hope Jayden Heartbreaker is, too. With a last name like that, what could possibly go wrong ....

Kieran! Someone needs to have a talk with that boy! He does like the ... ahem ... older women, doesn't he?  laughin

Very smart.

I've had that happen, too. Sometimes, though, the relationships still improve because they're all in the same room and end up talking to each other from across the room.

Those are cute pictures. I'm used to the children being all excited, but I don't remember seeing any teens get that way.

Okay, last stop in the game antics section!
I am determined to catch up in here before the weekend begins.

Em, what a gorgeous close up image of scrumptious Franco you captured in the shower.
I love it!

Plus my last names are sooo inspired...
Some of the last names I use are hardly worth mentioning.

Woah! A family affair of abductions!  
They say it happens a lot more frequently with the big, expensive telescope, Em.

Quote :

I left the door unlocked and she invited Dante in when her parents weren't looking.

Kids today!  
Love the family dinner shots! Always a fave!

Egads! Thank goodness for Adam's power of persuasion! Johannes would be a goner three times over!

Congrats to Tempest and Jayden (Heartbreaker laughin ).
Good for her being a one woman man since the engagement.
Is the Heartbreaker faithful as well?

Quote :

Hahaha! That could so happen in real life!
Well, maybe not a lecture if I didn't know the kids, but definitely a disapproving stare.

I love the snapshots of Francis and Connor being soooo excited about their good grades.

I always enjoy visiting your game antics, Em.
As always, your sense of humor tickles my funny bone.

I look forward to your next 'hood update.

Muahaha   I might have to find some way to remedy that.  laughin

Quote :

I know!  I couldn't believe it.  I wonder if it was a glitch or maybe the odds are higher because I deliberately made another sim in the hood get abducted before.  I've never had anything like that happen before.  Supposedly random abductions only happen with the big telescope and not at all with the cheap one.

I made an alien sim in this hood for Chase one time and I think it's great when he happens to be the sim my sims are spying on with their telescopes.



Quote :

Yes, so far he is.  I don't think he knows a lot of sims in the hood very well.  He seems pretty content to keep to himself.  He's very low key, except that he does not get along with Ciara and Adam at all.  I have to keep them separated to keep them from constantly attacking each other.  Which is a problem considering they are Tempest's best friends and they all live in the same duplex.     Adam and Jayden seem to be on better terms now than they were, but Ciara still despises him.

Quote :

laughin   I do too.  And I also picture her as knowing these kids since the RL Sugah reads my thread, even though this was probably the first time Sugah Sim met them.  I didn't look close enough to see if she was giving them a disapproving stare as she shook Kieran's hand, but maybe that was enough to embarrass them without the lecture.   laughin

Quote :

I probably should have micro-managed them more, but it was enough to keep them in the room and stop them from going to sleep while their guests were visiting.

Quote :

I thought maybe it happened just the first time they got an A+.  Maybe these two didn't get their grades up that high until after they were teens.  

Even though Dante and Rain had a cute first kiss, they didn't really go anywhere as a couple.  I guess it was a one time thing and they decided to just be friends.  Apparently Dante (I think that's Dante, anyway.  He and Gabriel look too much alike.) had another first kiss with an older townie lady.



Then Rain met a teenaged Connor (he's a little younger than her) and she knew she had found her match.  (It looks like Kieran approves too!)



I like this shot of Tempest (sort of) hanging out with Rain and her girl friends in the kitchen.  She seems to be like the type of mom who would want to be BFFs with her daughter and hang out like one of the girls.



As Rain is getting older they start talking about the future.  The places she will go and the people she will meet and her future career as she goes off to college.





Tempest suggests that Rain might meet someone new, someone that she likes even more than Connor, that she might not always be with her high school sweetheart.  Rain doesn't think so.



I get that Tempest is a permissive parent, but I think this is going a bit too far.   affraid Maybe she gets so enthralled in her video games that she doesn't notice what's going on around her or something. I don't even know.



Chronologically my next pictures are of my sim kids going to college!  I love you   So I'll stop here, with just one more pic of how cute Rain and Connor are together.

I love the conversation with Tempest and Rain in the kitchen. It's so realistic, and yet no teenager ever pays any attention to it!

Holy cow! affraid And that is the problem with a parent trying too hard to be a friend instead of a parent! Rain and Connor are a nice couple, but maybe they want to slow down a little. laughin

Rain and Connor having a "make session" right beside mom reminded me of this in my 'hood. That's Nisa Weasley (mom) with her back to the camera catching her son Fred and Toni Broadswood-Smythe.


Fred and Toni kept in touch through college, got married, and eventually presented their parents with a grandchild: Ginny (the little redheaded toddler in front). (As a teenager and YA, Ginny became quite a pool shark! laughin)


My hope: That Rain and Connor one day give Tempest a cute grandbaby.

At least Fred and Toni had their clothes on and it looks like Nisa walked in on them, instead of them just taking the other half of the couch next to her. I changed by ACR settings at one point to turn off teen woohoo and adult-teen relationships, because my sims are out of hand. They don't understand that they don't need to go from first kiss to woohoo in under 5 minutes. Rolling Eyes None (or at least very few) of my sims get the concept of taking it slow.

Mac wrote:

sunny My gameplay is pretty far ahead of what I shared so far, so (spoilers!) they already have.

After my original couples moved out and started families, I was left with a few odds-and-ends singles in my apartment complex. Among them were Rain's father, Stefan, Ulli's Benjamin and Johannes. Sugah's Anais and a couple of my own sims that I moved in partially as placeholders and partially to quickly add a few more ladies to the dating pool.

I started sending sims on dates, either with sims they already knew and liked or by set-ups from the matchmaker. Sometimes a date will trigger a marriage/engagement want, either for the date or for another sim that is not the date. Here's Stefan and Benjamin's happening bachelor pad while they both were on dates with a couple of random townie ladies.



Stefan and/or Anais did roll up wants to get engaged to each other, but the Sim Goddess overruled that decision. After all of the trouble Anais had getting impregnated by Enrique, not once, but twice, she then tried for baby with Stefan who already had one child with Tempest and another on the way with my sim Jade. I feel kind of bad that I didn't let them be together and have a baby together, but I think she deserved better.

At the same time both Johannes and Benjamin were dating my Johanna and another sim I thought I'd shared here, but hadn't and of course, they ended up pregnant by the same guy. So the Sim Goddess stepped in and decreed that they must choose partners first and try for babies second and started terminating pregnancies so they could sort themselves out first. The only pregnancy that didn't get cancelled was Jade's, because it slipped by before the Sim Goddess's wrath forced her to step in.

So here are some pictures of potential couples. Johanna and Benjamin.



Johannes and his dates. The first one is Bethany, second born child from my Baby Boom Challenge. They had triple bolts and I really thought they would be a couple, but when she called him to get together after she returned home from college, he turned her down for a date. Maybe he decided she was too young for him. The other lady is a random townie.





Eventually Johanna and Johannes ended up together. I do not remember how that came to be now. I kind of thought she and Benjamin looked good together. Maybe the similarity of their names was too much to pass up. I'm not sure, but that's how it ended up, so they moved into another apartment together and started a family. Stefan and Jade also paired up and moved into their own apartment in the same complex and Johanna and Johannes.

Here's Stefan holding infant daughter, Alexandra, as he practices a speech. He's working his way slowly up the dance career.



I was really determined to find a great guy for Anais (preferably one unattached, without other babies and baby's mamas running about.) I moved in a couple of guys for her, Toni's Bruno and Addison, hoping one would catch her eye. Unfortunately they didn't. I really thought she would go well with Addison, but it was very clear to me that they just liked each other as friends. She ended up moving into the same apartment complex as Enrique and his family so she could be close to her oldest children and so that Javier could get to know the twins and his father. She's still single, but has seemed to be content to focus on working up the culinary career and raising Javier.

Addison, however, did not stay single for long. He met Elena (by Jen, but originally I thought she was Sugah's. That's okay though, because I haven't used many of Jen's sims either. And at least I added a blonde to the gene pool!) and he knew she was the one for him.



Addison is super friendly. He's always randomly calling my sims to chat. I pretend that because he was in the education career, he's calling to check up on his students or in with their parents. It seemed to be the perfect job for him, until he got fired. After that he focused on being a stay-at-home dad for awhile as Elena worked.





Pretty early on Elena wanted a florist bench, so I pretend that's her second job, the one that she uses as a cover while she's really working her way up the criminal career path.





They had a beautiful wedding on their tiny back patio.







Benjamin cuts a dashing figure in his uniform. (Why is he still single?)

Remember back in my other thread when I mentioned Ming was dreaming of a family vacation.  Well, after Frances became a teen I decided to have Ming book the trip.  But before they could go, this happened . . .



So, I thought maybe it wasn't a good time to go.  I hated to have her run around on a vacation hungry and tired from pregnancy, so I cancelled the trip.  Then, I thought again.  Maybe it would be easier to go now before the baby was born, because afterwards it might be hard to find the time.  The boys were going to be off to college before they knew it.  So I had Ming reschedule to trip.

There was just one problem.  When they got to their destination, I realized they had forgotten someone.  Peter.



I wasn't sure what I could do.  So I had the family book a room anyway and then tried calling home to see if they could invite Pete to come and join them, but unfortunately he didn't answer and they got the answering machine.  Now of all three kids, Pete is not the one who should be left at home.  Ryan and Frances (as typical knowledge and wealth sims, respectively) I would trust to stay home on their own.  I'm sure they would keep busy and out of trouble.  But Pete is a romance sim.  He had his first kiss almost as soon as he aged up.  He routinely invites his girlfriend over after school and sneaks in some make-out/ woohoo time before his parents get home from work.  (This actually happened later, but . . .) One time he got brought home in a cop car for sneaking out at night.  He's not the one to leave at home alone.  



So I exited without saving, which was a huge mistake.  I tried to go back and reschedule and made sure I included the whole family this time.  I realized I'd missed Pete, because I had sorted the list by friendship to make it easier to find everyone, but hadn't realized that Ming somehow wasn't actually friends with her first born son.  When I tried to send them back, the lot wouldn't load in live mode for some reason, so I guess I messed it up by not saving.  verklempt   Pete was probably at school when he didn't answer, so I should have waited and tried again.

They never made it back, unfortunately, since they went on to have Alice and Lynn and Craig and by then the older kids had gone on to college.

Here's adorable Alice, the animal lover.

For some reason, my drop down menus aren't working properly here. I can't copy for quotes, so I'll have to do this the hard way!

Em, I'd have to agree that none of your Sims seem to know how to take things slowly. laughin For the most part, they don't waste time, do they?

Your potential couples were very nice and, like you, I thought Johanna and Benjamin made a good couple. I guess they think they know better. laughin

I like Stefan holding the baby while practicing. I've never tried having a Sim do that while holding a baby.

Addison and Elena are a very chic couple. From the picture of him with his hands over his ears, it seems he might not be the best music teacher. I also like Elena's cover career as a florist.

Seriously, why is Benjamin still single?!

I've never tried exiting without saving when my Sims were on vacation. Now I know not to do that! I'm sorry it was a bit of a mess for you. I'm sure it was a good call not to leave Peter on his own; he clearly cannot be trusted.

Alice with the womrat is the cutest thing, and I love the dinner conversation. I heard similar things from my parents. I like Alice's hair, too.

From the picture of him with his hands over his ears, it seems he might not be the best music teacher.

I really liked that one. I'd never seen a sim do that before while playing with a toddler and it made me laugh.

Just the way the chips fell, I guess. He might also be a bit hung up on Angelica.

Alice with the womrat is the cutest thing, and I love the dinner conversation.

I love that picture too. Alice seems to be the animal lover in the household. I think they originally got the womrat for the boys. That thing has lived forever.

At least Kevin wasn't a teenager with a girlfriend.

I'm so glad they got to be build up a close relationship before Frances left for college. So many of the older and younger siblings don't know each other at all in my hood, because they were spaced so far apart.

Speaking of college, next up in my pictures folder are pics from my first born offspring as they head off to college. I wanted to send them all together, so they could get to know each other, but space them out a little bit so the older ones were ahead of their younger siblings. Apparently I had forgotten about downloading a mod that shortened the college years, giving them only 48 hours and only one semester per year, so it ended up more accelerated than I really would have liked. I decided to have them move into the small houses on campus rather than into a dorm. Since there are so many kids I set up the girls in one house and the boys in another (which kind of defeated my purpose of bringing them all together, in hindsight. But it worked out fine and I actually liked it better than having them in the dorms.) As I started moving in the first-borns I started to realize how lopsided the gender ratio was for the oldest kids. Rain was the only first born girl, but some of the first born boys had non-SugahPlaceOffspring girlfriends, so I send them to college as well.

My girls' house started out the first semester with Rain (majoring in Literature) and Peter's girlfriend, Paige (Psychology). I also moved in Ramon's girlfriend, Emma (Drama), but since she was part of my Baby Boom Challenge she moved into the campus house where her older siblings were already living.

The boy's house started with Peter (Art), Ryan (Math), Ramon (Philosophy), and Dante (Math).

Second semester/year, I added Portia (Economics) and Frances (Economics) to the girl's house and Kieran (Psychology), Connor (Math), and Gabriel (Political Science) to the boy's house. Third year, Francesca (Drama) moved into the girls' house. (This is approximate. I may be a semester off for Dante and Gabriel).

I didn't take a lot of pictures since the college years seemed to go by so fast. Most of my pictures are probably make-out pictures as I was trying to keep track of who was hooking up with who. Knowing my sims, I might need a spread sheet. laughin

Franco and Raymie say goodbye to their oldest as he calls for the college cab to come pick him up.



Some of my college kids are severely fashion challenged. I thought Kieran's outfit was bad, until I rotated the camera around and saw Connor's hairy belly sticking out. I think I was too lazy to change Kieran's outfit, but I did change Connor's.



Frances and Portia moved into the house at the same time and immediately took a strong dislike to each other.





Since they were both wealth sims and wanted to major in Econ and had the exact same class schedule, I had to really babysit them for awhile to make sure they learned to get along. I didn't want it to escalate into constant fighting.



It didn't help that they were both interested in the same guys. (Or Dante at least.)





Somehow, despite all this, the two girls did end up becoming good friends by the time they reached graduation.

Since the boys and girls were in separate houses, I made a point to have my sims invite the other household over regularly, so they could interact. Sometimes though, they just wanted to study. These are the boys visiting the girls' place. I'm so impressed with how studious they are. I love you laughin (It doesn't last though, so I had to take this picture to prove they did spend some time on academics. )



Some of my sims are more devoted than others. Connor and Rain kept up their high school romance and remained faithful to each other.



Ramon and Emma were also still an item.



I don't know why Rain is so embarrassed by Ramon and Emma's kissing or flirting or whatever they were up to in the bathroom just before I captured this shot. I'm pretty sure she and Connor were up to something very similar just a moment before as he is just out of view.



And that's most of what I captured of their college years before the first round of sims started graduating. Here's Rain moving back to the main hood after graduation. As you can see, she still loves pink!



And here's a couple of random shots of Franco and Raymie's kids as Ramon graduates and moves back home. (Just to show off how pretty they all are.)

I used to invite the older siblings over for dinner just to make sure they got to know their younger siblings.

I don't even have any teens yet, and here you are with college students! I need to get busy ...

You probably will, if they take after their parents. laughin Sandy, I'm using index cards right now, too.

Drama already! I'm glad they got things worked out by the time they graduated.

All those students studying away -- I love it! Great picture.

Maybe Rain just has a thing about public displays of affection. Behind closed doors is a very different thing, apparently. I think it's sweet than Connor and Rain and Ramon and Emma have maintained their relationships.

I've been trying to do that as a regular thing, but still some of them don't seem to know each other very well.

laughin I'm actually ahead in my playing (or behind in my sharing) I was playing a lot for awhile. These sims have already graduated and have started families of their own. Their youngest siblings have finished university too.

Quote :

The boy Frances and Portia were both going after was one of Enrique's sons after all.

Quote :

Probably, but I'm not sure how public it was since they were all crammed into one little bathroom. Maybe she was embarrassed by them all having the same idea. laughin

I was going to share more, but the bus is here and my kid is home. Got to go!

I'm backtracking a bit to some pictures I skipped the last time since they were kind of a side story. I've been trying to have my original sims invite their grown children home for visits when they have a day or two off, usually one weekends. When Francesca was still a teen (and Marina even younger), Ramon and Portia came home for a visit.



Francesca is excited to hear all about college and she can't wait to go herself. She's already learned the college cheer.



Maybe Portia and Dante were just a fling. When it comes to bringing someone home with her, she brings Kieran. He's still her main squeeze.



Another family meal with Franco, Marina, Francesca and Francesca's teenage boyfriend, Isaac (Child #9 in my Baby Boom Challenge and Emma's little brother.)



Isaac and Francesca made a cute couple. I even played his family to age him up and send him to college when Francesca went, but she totally forgot about him in college and they drifted apart.



In college she got involved with one of Enrique's boys. (I'm about 90% sure this is Gabriel, but he and Dante look so much alike.)



Gabriel had also dated a Baby Boomer as a teen. I think this is Kara (#11), but it could be Jules (#10). He also forgot about her once college started.



Francesca also had a fling with Kieran, her sister's boyfriend. This may have been after Portia graduated and moved back home, but still . . .

It happens. I'm not sure trading him in for anyone with Enrique's genes is a smart idea, though. laughin

Francesca! How can anyone look so cute while doing something so wrong?!

I love the family pictures; thanks for the update.

laughin   Well . . . it depends on what you want.  If you want your babies to have his gorgeous genes, then it's a good trade.  If you want fidelity, maybe not.  In my game Enrique has settled down a bit.  I actually caught him kindly turning down the advances of a few ladies.  I haven't shared all of Angelica's story and I have to say she's no better than Enrique.  So Gabriel (potentially) gets it from both sides.  verklempt

I'm not sure who to talk about next.  The next pictures in my folder are of these kids moving out on their own and pairing up to start families.  I can't decide if I should start with the happy couples or the ones with drama.  laughin

In the meantime, I'll update you on Enrique's businesses.  He wants to have 5 top ranked businesses,  (Yeah, right.   ) but he owns 3 mediocre businesses instead and he'll have to be content with that.  laughin Running a business in this game is so time consuming.  It's ridiculous.  

His first business was a nightclub, Enrique's.  It's still a very popular hangout spot.  



I send my sims there when they want to go out on a date or visit a community lot.  It's fun seeing out SP simselves dropping by occasionally.  





Sometimes he brings Angelica with him.  I caught a picture of them in an intimate moment on the couch in the upstairs loft that overlooks the club one time, but I think it might be too much to share.   affraid   This time Dante showed up too and father and son played a few tunes together.



His second business was a music store.  Dante and Connor showed up as possible sims to hire, even though they were college students at the time.  (I didn't think that's supposed to happen.  One of the few minor, suspicious glitchy things I've seen happen in my game lately.)  I had him hire them both, but it caused some issues when I played them at college.  The carpool would come at the same time as their finals.  Connor and Dante were about half a semester off, so every other day one would go to work and the other would go to their finals.  Usually it would work out okay, because going to the final would take precedence over their job  and they would head to class instead of the carpool and they still made it to work often enough to not get fired.  Unfortunately at the end of Connor's senior year, he got in the carpool instead of going to his final before I could stop him.  He'd had a really good GPA and a high performance meter, but he ended up on academic probation and had to repeat his senior year.  



Connor is a terrible salesman, by the way.  The manager kept directing to do sales even though the customers did not like him.  I had to have Enrique keep him restocking or on the register.

Mac showed up for the grand opening!



Enrique's third business is a music studio.  I'm still not how to run this as an operable OFB business, but here it is.





My simself stopped by to use the karaoke machine.  No, sorry, Enrique, I can't sing.  I guess I won't be giving up my day job.  laughin  (Note to self:  I need to change her hairstyle.  I tried this one out on her a long time ago and left it.  The style is okay, but it's way too blonde.)



Since I mentioned what a bad girl Angelica has been, I guess I should go ahead and share the proof of that.  I feel like the impression I've given so far might have been more favorable to her and less so to Enrique.  Remember that guy she gave a makeover too, Serdar?  Well, she didn't.



I was very disappointed in her.  At least Enrique never had an affair in their own home.  He doesn't look to concerned about what's going on.



It gets worse . . .

I was playing Franco and Raymie's lot when Marina was about to go out in the courtyard and see if she could get her first kiss with Javier, but apparently he had different ideas.      No!  Come on!  That is your (unofficial) step-mother / step-son!  Ugh!  



Marina gets her first kiss with Javier anyway.  



Then Andre thinks, "What a good idea!"     No!  That's your virtual step-mother who raised you from the time you were a toddler!     Angelica, why do you not know better and why didn't you shut this down?     I immediately made then selectable and friendzoned them all.  Shortly after this I turned off the teen-adult actions too, at least temporarily.  Because, no.



There is way too much action in this courtyard.  (I forget what this neighbor's name is.)



It looks like none of these sims can make up their mind.  



Franco and Raymie live in this complex too and I am so glad neither of them decided to participate in all of this drama.

SimMac did seem to go right for the most classical looking item in the shop.  I thought he looked like he was trying to decide if he had room for the piano or not.  laughin   I'll have to check his inventory sometime to see if he bought something on his visit there or not.

Quote :
Adorable picture of them!!

Which ones?  I had a cute one of Franco and Raymie in the courtyard too, but I can't find it right now.  Found it!



As I was posting the last update and it turned out to be more drama filled than I had originally planned, I decided then who I would post about next, one of my sweet and steady couples.  We need a break from the drama.   laughin

As my sim offspring started graduating from college, I started moving them all into my notorious apartment building until the younger ones graduated and everyone paired off.  Rain and Connor were still and item. Since she was a bit older than him and he took an extra semester to finish, she waited for him to graduate and then they moved into a small pre-built house together.  She started on a career in architecture and was raising through the ranks pretty quickly.  I believe he's working as a scientist and wants to be a mad scientist, like his dad (if I'm remembering correctly.)



She still loves pink, as you will notice.  I don't think I changed any of her outfits except for everyday (after these first few pictures) and her formal outfit. I think she's rubbing off on Connor in his everyday wear. (Those red pants and shoes need to go though.  I would like to dress him in something a lot nicer, but he really seems partial to sleeveless tops.   laughin )

I decided my new couples need to get to know their in-laws.  Rain and Connor visit Tempest.  They may be showing off a little bit extra, since Tempest had her doubts about them staying together forever.  Tempest is still engaged to Jayden and is currently expecting another baby.



Later they have dinner with Connor's parents and aunt and uncle.



I wonder if his baby brother, Erik, is a little spoiled having dinner served to him by his own personal butler.  laughin



Time with family is nice, but I think they much rather enjoy a quiet evening at home, just the two of them.



That's when Connor decides to pop the question.  And of course, she accepts.



But why is he having second thoughts?  (I thought he was a knowledge sim)  verklempt



They have a wedding at home with their closest friends and family.





Ciara misses the ceremony, because she's inside munching on chips instead.  Rolling Eyes





And because my sims can't just let everything be nice, fights break out.  How many years has it been since Stefan and Tovia seen each other?  Apparently it wasn't long enough.   *sigh*  Way to behave at your baby girl's wedding, Stefan.  



Then Ciara and Jayden go at it too.



He's even offered her money, appealing to her wealth sim sensibilities, to try to make peace, but so far nothing has worked. (When I saw there was a "pay off" option for them, I couldn't resist trying it.  laughin )



The party even carries on long after the bride has turned in for the evening.



Here's their house.  Since Rain is an architect, I think I ought to build them something more impressive once they've built up some savings.  Since it is Rain, I had to put in some pink, but for Connor's sake I tried not to go overboard.  The office with Rain's drafting table, didn't get to stay that way for long, as they soon needed the second bedroom for a nursery.
