Hello again! Winter is setting in, work is getting busy, and I’m having less and less time to play The Sims 4 – but I still have three and a half updates after this one, which should see us safely through to the school holidays ;) Enjoy!
Last time: the Coopers moved house! Julian Duff moved in, and got engaged to Claire! Christina went to the Willow Creek bar, watched a fight, saw the Grim Reaper and met a cute boy named Amir!
Zoe and Rachel calling in vacation days? I wonder why…
Maybe Claire and Julian are getting married?!
So here the Coopers are at the museum, with some of their closest friends, to watch the nuptials.
Liberty Lee reckons she’s got better things to do than pay attention to this. smh, Liberty Lee
Uh Christina… why are you fanning yourself?
ecurercuiecuau here we are, at YOUR OWN WEDDING, and you are wanting to ask someone to go steady. What is your problem, Julian.
Well, maybe you should keep your hands off him Christina, seeing as he just got married to your sister.
The mixologist we hired couldn’t be fucked turning up, so Melvin had to do a stint behind the bar :(
It’s like Claire’s forgotten whose wedding she’s at…
Christina: Help! What am I doing here? :D
Julian: Cake :D
It sure looks a lot less gloomy after the sun rises a bit in the sky.
Yeah, uh, no. Don’t skip your own wedding to go to work.
smh!! you are at your own wedding to Stacey’s daughter
Zoe also did a stint behind the bar. Teenagers are well-regarded for their good sense and responsibility around alcohol, after all.
Julian is basically the best at wedding-appropriate whims.
I think Tabitha is happy, after all, to see her son with his bride.
How did Zoe manage this on a day she didn’t even go to school?
Christina invited Amir to the museum after the festivities were over for a bit of a getting-to-know-you chat. His traits, by the way, are Snob, Good and Outgoing.
A lil’ bit of flirting…
…and Christina jumps straight to this whim. Well, let’s see what we can do!
Back at home, Christina and Amir continue to flirt, and Julian tries to insert himself into the conversation like some kind of weirdo.
Before long, they jump into the sack! In, uh, Christina’s parents’ bed, probably because she doesn’t have a double bed of her own.
Claire’s been promoted to Dance Team Captain!
Claire: No more unicorn costume! :D :D :D
Christina: You know, I am in the Astronaut career path, which’ll probably be very lucrative as I ascend through the ranks! Want to be my boyfriend, and maybe one day we can afford a big house together?
Amir: Hellz yeah!
Autonomous backrubs. I wish my boyfriend would do that.
A little while later, our newlyweds decide to try and make a baby!
This time, they are successful!
Claire: Great news, baby! We’re going to be parents!
Julian: Oh that’s ni— wait what
Claire: We have conceived! A little Baby Julian or Baby Claire is growing in my womb right as we speak!
Julian: Ummm my salad is going cold! Or, uh, wilting or something. Please let me eat it!
But he got a positive moodlet though, so all’s well that ends well.
And just because the younger twins aren’t really getting much of a look-in in this legacy these days, here they are eating breakfast. Yup.
After that, Christina moved out and into Daisy Hovel with her beau Amir Britton.
They get to business pretty fast :P
And what do you know! Christina is eating for two!
Christina decides she’d better make it official, and pops the question to Amir.
It was not a long engagement.
They held a beautiful private wedding… on their front lawn…
Then, for some reason, we had a welcome wagon. These three plus Claire was it. Claire brought a fruitcake that apparently was gross, not that it stopped her eating it.
For some reason Tabitha leapt straight to insulting Amir, even though it’s not like she even knew him to have a grudge against him. rude
At least Christina got to share her exciting news with her twin Claire!
And then I returned to the main household.
Melvin autonomously giving money away, nbd~
I mean, at least this is after the Coopers have built up some savings and §100 isn’t going to bankrupt them.
Julian’s younger sister Kelsi wanted to come over and hang out.
Nice little hanging out session.
“Huh, Zoe? I didn’t see any aliens anywhere.”
It turns out that Zoe is an unashamed chess cheat.
By the way, in case you were curious, this is Julian’s family tree. That Freddy Coats guy sure got around…
Does this mean that Melvin is too old for good WooHoo now? It’s not like his motives were exactly low when he started :/
It’s not exactly obvious due to how ~fit~ Claire is, but baby bump!
Zoe: Hmm… I wonder what this birthday cake is doing here?
Birthday time! She got the trait Perfectionist, to go with her existing traits Self-Assured and Neat.
It’s Rachel’s birthday too! (No surprise there, seeing as they’re twins.)
She got the trait Good, to go with Creative and Music Lover.
Zoe: Hey sis! We’re old enough to have WooHoo now!
But there is one more birthday…
Stacey transforms into a rockin’ elder. Julian cheers.
This is just a super cute interation ♥ I make my Sims do it every time.
Zoe got a job in business, because it seemed like a good fit for a slightly neurotic perfectionist neat freak who chases other people out of the bathroom when she breaks the plumbing in there but refuses to fix it herself. Rachel has become a C-Lister.
Christina visits, but she is not particularly happy.
~the boring twins~
The older twins discuss their pregnancy cravings.
Meanwhile, the younger twins…Zoe: *sexually frustrated*
Rachel: *happy with cake*
Is “VERY INSPIRED” some kind of euphemism here for “INSPIRED TO GET WASTED”?
Julian can’t seem to remember where his bed is. This one is not it.
One more level to go!
I mean, she worked out throughout the first two trimesters. But now the game won’t even let her take a leisurely jog! Bummer.
Christina visited again, Very Uncomfortable the whole time.
The house had a minor renovation done, adding some cover over the front verandah to match every other house in this neighbourhood. It makes it look more complete imo.
This one was so much easier than Friend of the bloody World, lol.
Look at all the new types of joke she can tell now!
Goddamn. She looks like she’s about to cry :( Hang in there, Chris! Life will get better!
Scrolling through someone’s relationship panel, I discover that TABITHA DUFF HAS DIED. Julian, her own son, is blissfully unaware.
A kid that no one knows knocks on the Coopers’ front door. Go away kid. No children even live here.
So uh… does this game think that elderly Sims are just incapable of enjoying WooHoo any more, even if they still want it? This is stupid.
THIS is Julian’s athletic outfit…
Melvin may not have done very well with his Mansion of the Baron aspiration, but he did have enough aspiration points for a Potion of Youth. You earned it, Melvin!
Poor ladies :( I am struggling to work out what that icon is supposed to mean, though.
Uh Claire… maybe not the best go-to topic when you’re a few hours away from giving birth?
Christina went home and a few hours later we got this! NO WONDER she was so uncomfortable all the time :O
Meanwhile, Claire’s gone into labour, too!!
Stay tuned until next time for more ;)
