Daymore Apocalypse, Chapter 1.0

Thorn Daymore was the first in his family to go to university.  He was so excited for the experience, that he vowed to make this the time of his life.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-05-06-81.jpg

He made sure to get all of his studying done.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-08-38-08.jpg

He made sure to keep his hunger appeased.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-15-46-14.jpg

And he especially made sure to max all of his skills to complete his aspiration (max 7 skills).

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-29-04-37.jpg

When he wasn’t reading skill books, Thorn was out being seen.  He loved people and wanted to make a lot of friends.  He made sure to stay fit on top of everything else.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-38-43-91.jpg

At night, he dug for treasure.  He grew up dirt poor and knew that he wouldn’t be happy until his bank account was padded.   Then one night, a friend of his jumped out of a limo.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-38-49-26.jpg

Not sure what was going on, but hearing the giggles from others in the limo, Thorn played along.

He wasn’t Big Sim on Campus for nothing.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-40-04-75.jpg

Thorn was taken to a secret place where he found even more people to befriend.  He was super excited about this.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-55-14-37.jpg

Thorn found a guy to flirt with and even nabbed his first kiss.  It wasn’t true love or anything, but it was nice to have someone just in case.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 10-59-06-09.jpg

Digging sucked on the best of days.  He seemed to be able to hit the water pipes about 95% of the time.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 11-03-20-97.jpg

He did finally splurge and get the Energizer.  He only used it in dire emergencies though.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 11-06-58-92.jpg

Thorn finally maxed his skills though.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 11-18-46-08.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 11-18-54-90.jpg

As a reward, he got prize left on his doorstep.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 11-20-03-33.jpg

Smelly after a day of digging, Thorn knew that he was going to use two of his wishes on wealth.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 11-32-56-15.jpg

Thorn might be doing well, but his dormies were another matter.  Thorn literally had to stop over bodies all over the place just to get to a chair to do his assignments.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 12-39-08-40.jpg

Thorn knew he couldn’t just stay at school making friends.  In his 3rd year, he finally started venturing back to Strangetown and meeting some older people.  They all thought he was weird, but he just said that he was fascinated by peoples jobs and was just curious.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 12-54-29-98.jpg

Night after night, Thorn went out and met new people and found them all with varying jobs at different levels.  After a while, no one even batted an eye at his notebook full of names and job levels.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 13-13-03-08.jpg

Thorn:  Dammit, I’m going to be stuck in this track suit for eternity!

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 19-33-05-61.jpg

Thorn wasn’t really sure what he wanted to do, so he took the first job that showed up.  Natural Scientist wasn’t what he studied in college, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 19-51-06-07.jpg

One of the welcome wagon sims tried to Network with Thorn, but Thorn was already getting a promotion a day, and never noticed a raise of any kind.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 19-51-22-01.jpg

Thorn used his time wisely.  He invited in anyone who was walking by so that he could befriend them and find out about their jobs.  When he noticed some weren’t employed (or were too young for jobs), Thorn made sure to say hi, but sent them quickly on their way.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-12-33-63.jpg

Rose:  Omg, you’re so gross.  You need to take a damn shower!
Thorn:  I would if I could own one.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-20-07-12.jpg

Thorn wasn’t able to have dates or outings, but on his first Tuesday, he invited over Michael, his flirt from college.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-26-43-48.jpg

I’m pretty sure it’s another promotion day.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-33-48-66.jpg

His friend General Grunt has a few kids.  I’m pretty sure Thorn is joking with one of them here.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-37-14-60.jpg

To celebrate his last promotion, Thorn bought a telescope.  With only working one day a week, he knew he was going to need to do something with all of his free time.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-50-01-55.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-50-27-51.jpg

The minute that Thorn set up the telescope, he crawled into bed for a quick nap.  Not even 30 minutes later, he was robbed.  Unlike in sims 3, you cannot beat the shit out of this asshole, so Thorn had to watch his newest possession disappear.

As soon as she was gone, Thorn bought a new telescope.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 20-52-28-10.jpg

And by the early morning, Thorn was returning from his trip through space.  Before he even got up off the ground, he was already wanting to go back.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 21-44-31-26.jpg

Thorn:  I need socialization!
Dude:  Um, why do you think I’m here?
Thorn:  I need to finish my tantrum first, please go on inside.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 21-54-38-26.jpg

After days of hot dogs, Thorn finally branched out into burgers.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 21-57-45-31.jpg

Oh and he brought back a present from the stars (and maxed his game enthusiasm).

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-01-18-99.jpg

It’s finally Tuesday!  Thorn spent the weekend pouring over his notes and has finally decided on a spouse.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-12-14-30.jpg

Of course, Nova had to make an appearance just minutes after Thorn made his call.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-13-25-83.jpg

Gerard Landry was level 9 in business, while not the perfect spousal lift, it was better than nothing.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-22-19-71.jpg

*snort*

Have a great day at work, Thorn.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-28-51-50.jpg

Gerard was Nova’s caretaker as Thorn kept throwing out fears of changing diapers.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-30-16-22.jpg

On Thursday, Gerard got a chance card that probably could have gotten him fired, but he chose wisely and brought home a boatload of cash and promotion.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-30-38-71.jpg

This was pretty amazing since he still had a couple of skill points needed for work.

There was really no rush for him to quit his job yet, so he used that time to get meal during the day.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 22-59-13-93.jpg

Nova has grown up and even though Alien Tech was unlocked, the smart milk was one of the items that Thorn brought home from university.  Gerard wanted to get closer with Nova, so he was in charge of her training.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 23-05-49-45.jpg

She’s so freaking cute.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 23-13-38-89.jpg

The next few days were a blur.  Thorn got pregnant with Gerard’s baby and it was a brutal time.  Liam was born and instead of cooing over the new baby, the two debated on where his blue skin came from.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 23-19-31-73.jpg

Thorn still wanted to see the stars again and off he went while Gerard putted amid the nasty plates of uneaten food and dirty dishes.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 23-25-36-15.jpg

I can’t remember her name, but Thorn found out that she was high up in her career.  He did add her to the notebook, but her name got lost in there.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 23-37-01-38.jpg

Liam aged up blue and an old man face clone of Gerard.  It was proof that Liam did belong to both of them.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-06 23-47-17-96.jpg

Nova became a child today.  As a toddler she maxed her charisma on the bunny head (woot!).  She’s also the cutest thing ever and our heiress.

I was going to do a Patriarchy, but I don’t want the old man face to be the heir.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 00-04-02-80.jpg

Thorn (and now Gerard) continue to stop people for information.  He adds them to a list that so far either has level 7-8 in one or two careers or 20 people in level 1-3 of culinary.  It’s getting annoying.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 00-04-09-08.jpg

Gerard:  Level 8, huh?  I guess that’s not too bad.  I’ll add you to Thorn’s list.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 00-16-39-99.jpg

Liam aged up today.  He luckily made it to the toilet on time.  I’m pretty sure he got charisma to level 8 or 9 at least.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 00-18-10-16.jpg

In my growing forgetfulness, Thorn’s last trip did result in another pregnancy.  Lyra has just grown into a very angry toddler.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 00-19-10-73.jpg

Smart milk wasn’t much of an improvement in her attitude, but at least she can learn skills now.

Cutie-girl is skilling up with her jump rope.

Random shot of Lyra.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-14-14-82.jpg

Even though it was Gerard who wanted a gold badge, Thorn got his first.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-16-05-88.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-18-41-31.jpg

This means snapdragons for everyone!

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-25-41-08.jpg

Even though the kids do have their own beds, this helps to keep ACR from making more babies for us.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-28-13-07.jpg

Lyra ages up with maxed charisma and 7 levels of something else.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-30-01-59.jpg

Nova shares a birthday with Lyra.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 07-45-42-53.jpg

Lyra and Liam reading skillbooks.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 08-17-01-82.jpg

Creepy Liam is creepy.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 08-21-01-70.jpg

Being forced to read by snapdragons is helping a tiny bit in the hygiene department.  The fact that washing hands as kids does absolutely nothing for them was a bitch and a half.

I’m so tired of green clouds.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 09-22-17-29.jpg

Nova:  My dad said I should come down and invite you in.
Buzz:  I guess I have some free time.

Nova ended up wandering off, so it was Thorn who invited him to move in with his whopping $700.  Buzz left his kids to fend for themselves.

Thorn was finally able to leave the lot and spent night after night meeting new people and gathering new information, but it wasn’t until a week later that he finally got what he wanted.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-10-48-81.jpg

The object of Thorn’s obsession finally showed up at one of the clubs and Thorn was on her like a mouse on cheese.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-11-29-61.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-12-23-65.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-17-57-46.jpg

He bugged, stalked, and followed her around until she caved in and gave him what he was begging for.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-18-22-48.jpg

Thorn:  I hope I don’t regret this.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-38-46-98.jpg

Buzz got demoted, but we don’t actually care since we already consider Military unlocked.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-45-13-97.jpg

Nova has 8 scholarships (because Thorn kept wanting it over and over again).  She was hoping to get abducted, but night after night of searching turned up nothing.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-51-06-34.jpg

Lyra has her teen birthday finally.  She maxed all of her skills (except creativity) as a child.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 10-53-06-02.jpg

..and this is how long it took Gerard to max his skills for his Aspiration.  He has so many neat points, that he couldn’t sit still in his own stench long enough to do anything.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 11-08-04-39.jpg

Nova:  I can’t believe you and dad want me to marry an old man.  That’s so gross!
Gerard:  Do you want to help this family out of this disaster or not?
Nova:  Whatever.

Sims2EP9 2019-03-07 11-38-51-44.jpg

Nova took off in the middle of the night.  She arrived at La Fiesta Tech early the next morning and called her dad.

Nova:  You want me to marry that gross old man? Fine, but it can wait until after I graduate…if he lives that long.
Thorn:  That is not how this works, Nova!
Nova:  It does if you want me to breed.
