Welcome to Door 2 of the Sliding Doors Challenge. This time we will try not to kill Ivory off and actually do a good job getting her to die of old age.
Ivory moves to an empty== Hey, now. How the hell did you get this?
Ivory: I got a loan.
You’re a rule breaker.
Anyway, Ivory lives in Meadow Glen this time around and it is populated with all of my own sims, Julie’s Mallow Ugli, and a household of girls I tried to pimp out to Peanut Brittle back in my Tart days
The house is fully furnished so, we delete all of Ivory’s money to pay down the “loan”.
Ivory is left with $400 in case she wants to take a class after getting a job.
She still owes $50,000. I think we need to find her a millionaire.
Ivory: I want a job in education.
No more rule breaking!
Ivory: Yay, new chair!
Ivory: I know there is a brand new chess set right here, but I prefer to play against and AI and not empty space.
Too bad, it’s time to join the medical career.
Ivory: But… I like killing people, not fixing them!
Please try and remember that you’re not the evil assassin anymore.
Ivory walks halfway down the block to get on her broomstick.
Ivory: I don’t want a job, I want to go to college!
You have 0 skills and no money.
Peaches and Riley, I’m not sure how long I’ve had them, but it’s been years. If I remember correctly they were IF’s in a former life, but are a completely human married couple now.
SP is starting to generate NPC’s. Who’d a thunk that a library would also sell books. *shrug* He’s a fairy who decided to come to work in his jammies.
How the hell did you manage that already?
Ivory: They were putting on quite the show and I couldn’t help but watch. I even called the local news about this public indecency.
Indecency my ass, you pervert.
Skill book reading until something more fun pops up.
Ivory: I better meet someone to invite over then.
Ivory then makes an online dating profile.
And checks the available sims in town. We quickly not that Colin, her soulmate, is in fact still single. Mallow is too <eyebrowwaggle>
Cassia: How dare you paint instead of manning your register!
Cassia: Lazy jerk
Ivory: Welp, I’m outta here.
First baby incoming.
Ivory: I wonder how they got knocked up at the library?
You and me both.
Ivory stops and takes a painting class on the way home…not that it helps her career in any way.
Well, I guess that’s one way to end her first day.
Her painting class left Ivory with no money, so she has bread and jam for dinner.
No one left her any messages, so she left a few.
The next morning, Ivory has cereal for breakfast and the NPC are STILL generating for this town. Even on triple speed, it took almost 30 minutes to get through the night.
So, we packed everyone up in Porter and said to hell with this place.
Ivory lands in a rustic starter cabin, which leaves her with about $2,000 (only because I placed the small house on a bigger lot for building later on if needed).
Ivory: All alone playing chess in this pretty park.
Ivory: I said all ALONE in the park playing chess in the pretty park.
Yes, I was there and I heard you.
Ivory: Then make this purple chick leave. I was doing just fine until she showed up.
I really can’t see any reason to interfere. Be nice.
Ivory: You’re going down.
Oh yes, let’s spend money we don’t have on an inventing workbench.
Ivory: What the hell are you doing here?
Bumbleberry Puff, one of my own sims from my Doppleganger challenge, is now a paparazzi.
You spent all your money on that damn inventing bench.
She wanted to meet someone new, so off she goes. She encounters my berry simself.
Ivory: Hello someone new, I’m bored but talking to you anyway.
Oh geezus. I’m a paparazzi.
Ivory: You better get my good side.
She then (is this a party animal thing to do?) encounters Sabine Holly, a spare from Chazzy’s Holly ISBI. Sadly, she is now the proprietor of the coffeehouse. I’m sure we can fix that if need be later on.
Her someone new ends up being Bessie Clavell.
*I forgot to mention: Before we started, I hit every single person in town and randomized their traits, changed the LTW and made them quit their jobs if the new LTW didn’t correspond to their current employment. I then kicked them out of their homes and made them homeless.*
Ivory: Did you see that? I just got my picture in another rag. I’m so tired of this.
VJ: Yo, bro!
Ivory heads home after a quiet first day.
Ivory: I’m standing here starving to death and you want to chat? Okay.
She started her first painting instead of going to bed.
…and after a quick snooze, she was off to her first day of work.
Ivory: Well, that was fun. There was lots of blood. It was fantastic.
Ivory: Oh, Colin, I’ve missed you so. I haven’t seen you in over a year!
Colin: Why, yes, I am fabulous and most ladies do miss me, even after only one encounter.
Colin (from Nirar) and Ivory have been together almost three years now. You can find them over here.
Omg, this can’t be unseeen. Jocasta, go put some clothes on!
Jocasta: I bring all the boys to the club.
Ivory: I can’t believe I’m in a time when Nancy and Xander can sing a duet. BOO! I want to sing karaoke!
Ivory: Crap, I don’t know this stupid song.
Everyone: BOO! YOU SUCK!
Gobias: I’m quite the catch, my little chickadee.
Ivory: Move on before you’re dead.
Gobias: I’m younger than I look, little lady.
Ivory: I will cut you. Move along.
She randomly wants to learn the writing skill.
Which bores her, so she snuck some chatting in with someone.
Delilah: Stay just like that. Your stink cloud is the focus of my next piece.
Ivory: I hate this town.
*Another couple of notes: I have a new caste system so that only certain careers can have celebrities and only for levels 6+. Another thing I’m trying is a married caste where only married couples can have babies.* We shall see how that one goes.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and state that this must be who you were chatting with. How the hell do you two find each other?
She does go out and find him for that skinny dip, but my fraps had closed out or shutdown or something. So, here’s a pic of her first completed painting instead.
She gets stressed out (I use the work hard tone), but she does manage to get a job level.
Colin: Um. Hi.
That’s all that happened there. She wanted to sing karaoke again.
So, she heads to the bar and finds Sabine, who is “magically” not a proprietor anymore.
(They have been sending each other text for two days)
Of course this would happen. As usual, my aliens from .sim file are not aliens in game, but thanks to MC, I fixed that back when I first put her in town. I figured she would be about 75% alien.
Sabine: You flirted with me and somehow we’re on a date, yet you sing with some old married dude? Yuck.
Jenn: I am so glad I brought my camera tonight.
Sabine: Totally worth it.
..and Ivory gets her 2nd celebrity star.
Ivory: If you don’t let me win, I won’t cyberwoohoo you!
Sabine: Oh it’s on. You’re going down!
Sabine: Why the hell did you stop? I was about to beat your ass.
Ivory: I suddenly have this urge to pet the kitty.
Starburst is actually attracted to her irresistible trait and wants to mark her even though they have never met. He was a kitty mate in the Tart’s and I forgot he was part of the all female household I linked earlier.
Ivory: *wave* Hi, kitty!
Starburst: I haz fleas. Save me, human.
I swear, Ivory is going to end up with fleas at this rate.
Talk about random thoughts.
Ivory starts chatting up Sabine in the hopes of getting her kiss.
Ivory spends some reward points and learns more about Sabine.
The club ended up closing, so Ivory was just about to kiss Sabine when they got tossed out. She had to start all over again when they got outside, so new wishes started coming fast.
This one doesn’t count as a kiss, but as you can see, Ivory is going to need to head home soon. This led to the make out session that does get her kiss wish done.
Ivory: I better go before I eat your face.
Ivory: That was fun!
Pancakes with a side of flies. Yum. Why the hell did you want pancakes anyway?
Ivory: But I’m tired and stinky!
Too bad. You stayed out all night and now you have to go to work.
This is not good. Why do you want a massage? You need to go home to bed.
No TFB in town, just risky and she gets caught.
Ivory: Yeah, so you totally knocked me up.
How she managed to make to to 8pm I’ll never know. She even managed to take a shower.
She wakes up and eats mac n cheese, but more importantly, she did two loads of dishes. Yay!
Well, Ivory can send the love letter, but she does not have the space for poor Boyd. I don’t think you can pillow fight pregnant anyway.
My Fraps is still acting up. This is literally a screenshot of my screenshot because photoshop can’t read this .
Ivory was out trying to get another writing point at the library when Sabine showed up.
And then Colin showed up.
..and this is when it happened. Riley and Peaches were pregnant from the old town. But I did not get a single notification that they had a baby, that it was a boy, or that it aged up to toddler. In fact, the only notifications I recall are all about Ivory.
btw, that boy is freaking adorable.
So, now I have to hunt down a very serious issue.
Ivory: So, I’m pregnant.
Colin: Yes, and very attractive.
Colin: So, who’s the lucky father?
Ivory: You are. You are on a freaking 10% risky on my first woohoo. Keep your potent swimmers away from me!
Peaches: Ooh a love triangle, it’s like the plot of that last smut book I read.
Sabine: I had such a lovely date, I hope we have another.
Ivory: Please, just let me get my writing level so I can escape.
There will be no escape. Sigh. She wanted to start the book, finish the book, and something else.
She got up to take a break and Colin stole the only computer in town.
Not that Ivory really cares, she is off chatting with Celadon.
In case it wasn’t mentioned, Ivory did buy her fridge for over $600. Then she got to buy a stove worth more than $1,000. She’s broke again.
..and she does and now she has commitment issues. Thanks game.
*saved for later*
A response from Sabine finally.
Ivory breaks the shower and thankfully wants to fix it.
She got out of the shower and promptly breaks the toilet too.
Ivory: Dammit, I hate this cheap stupid house.
Ivory is forced to fix both before she can go to bed.
Bumbleberry: I’ll just take a tiny snoop through her trash. She’ll never know.
My game was running just great until then. Good thing I had just saved.
