Last time, University happened, a surprise baby happened, and not much else. So, let’s get Generation 2 officially started.
Nova arrives home and immediately heads up to find Buzz.
They get to know each other and decide to try to be friends first.
There is zero attraction between them, but they must do their duty.
It did not go as planned, so a second attempt had to be made.
Nova wanted to woohoo in a bed, so at least something positive came of this.
Nova figures that parading around with her tits showing was bound to improve her and Buzz’s relationship.
And it worked. Although, Buzz does seem like he’s checking out her boobs and not her proposal.
Buzz: Never wear clothes again and I’ll be yours.
Buzz likes fit sims, so maybe if Nova gets fit, thing will perk up between them.
Cosmos has his birthday, and he may not be as ugly as Liam (yet), he’s sort of got this so ugly he’s cute thing going on.
Smart milk+potty training with Thorn..or someone.
Nova’s job showed up fast. With all her skills maxed, she should be able to finish this up fast.
Nova shows off her little bump.
Buzz likes the new fit Nova. He also seems to love her tiny belly too.
Hiding upstairs, Gerard counts down his days spying on the neighbors. Also, Thorn’s latest book, Vamplien, is hot off the presses.
Back at Univeristy, Lyra was spotted heading outside to eat from the garbage. That was cancelled fast and she ended up grilling some hot dogs. Just as she sat down to eat, she had to leave for class.
Liam counts down his hours to his final examination by stargazing.
The next night, he heads back to Strangetown while Lyra was still in class.
All alone, the weirdo that is Lyra, cuts loose.
Back in Strangetown, Bomber was born. I was surprised at how human he looks.
Nova and Liam are on track, although Liam was able to head straight back to work and get to level 6.
These two spend a lot of time playing chess together.
Cosmos had his birthday. He’s actually a bit cuter than I expected.
He worked on nothing but the bunny head. It was so close to max that reading for 15 sim minutes maxed it out.
Liam actually did not get a promotion to level 6. I forgot he was skill resistant. He is forced to read for the rest of the night.
After two weeks of trying, I had to open up Simpe and see what the fuck is up with Buzz. I saw nothing amiss, but I jiggled some numbers and added him back into the military. He will not be completing his Aspiration because he just can’t get a job in whatever it was. I might use the batbox to reroll it.
It turns out that Lyra and Cosmos are full siblings, while Nova has a different one. This does not stop them from being best friends though. Probably since it was Nova who took basic care of him.
Simpe did fix Buzz. I am calling the cheats I used perfectly legal since he did unlock his lift when he moved in. With all the rerolling I did to get him a non-career based aspiration, I sort of forgot what one he moved in with. I rolled randomly one more time and it was Become the Law. He’s just a day or two away from elder, so he got a job in that career with no trouble (yay) and I cheated him to a higher level. He still has to earn his skill points, but at least he has a chance at completing this aspiration now.
I don’t know enough about this game to know how Nova did this, but I wondered why she was platinum for days.
Bomber grows up and man he is a daddy clone. He also always looks like he’s on the verge of crying.
Liam came home with a promotion. I had him rush to get a couple of skills. Then found out he has three days off. Dammit.
Poor Lyra was abandoned at University for a bit longer than expected. We come back to get her term paper written and some assignments done.
When she wasn’t in class, she was doing some intense research. Only then was she allowed to be on the telescope that she had become addicted to.
Lyra was fascinated with space and one day hoped to go there herself and find out where she came from.
But no matter how many times she searched for UFO’s, she always dragged herself up to bed at dawn disappointed.
Even after graduating with honors, she still would rather search the skies for her family instead of going home.
Lyra arrives back home with her usual pissed off look.
Right there, lying on the ground, was the bills no one had been paying. Lyra really hoped to find a job and get her shit done so she can get out.
Buzz became an elder that night. He still has dead eyes.
Lyra went missing, but no one had to look too far to find her. Gerard was up with her giving her tips.
Smart milk failed on Bomber. He learned his basic skills, but just barely. He didn’t get more than 4 points of charisma. He’s a cute kid though.
Nothing happens in this house of importance. Nova goes to work, hopefully bringing home a promotion.
Bomber reads before school.
Cosmos was located exiting his dads coffin, just in time since it is time for Thorn to head in it.
Instead I find him and Gerard trying to get a morning woohoo in while Liam and Lyra are camped out down there chatting.
Buzz and Thorn have quit their jobs.
Speaking of Buzz, he is finding the sharpness of his brain is failing in his old age. Poor guy.
Liam was asleep and almost missed the carpool. Both of them will top their careers and lift their restrictions! I’m so excited.
I was so excited in fact, that I sent everyone on the lot to sleep so that I could triple speed through the day.

Nova gives us lights! I’m so excited for this.
By the time the house had lights and the chair no longer turned to stop from computer use, the kids were home from school. I expect a mad dash for fun.
A couple of hours after the kids got home from school, Liam makes his way inside.
Another restriction lifted!

I really, really hated to do this, but Liam did all that was required of him and he was excited to be moving out and onto his own life.
This opened a much needed spot for Nova, who was doing something her sister Lyra has never been able to do…
…or not. She was out there for hours, but nothing happened. She had to stop because her carpool had just arrived.
Not to be ignored, Lyra does have another promotion too.
Lyra snags a snapdragon on her way up to the telescope. She was sure tonight was going to be the night.
