Veronaville, Round 1: Summerdream

Welcome to the Summerdream’s.  I did not get starting wants due to a fight that broke out.  I did some aspiration adjusting, but not much.

First things first, ACR assumed that Oberon and Titania have never kissed before and they get their first kiss.

Tybalt beats up Mercutio like a jerk.

Sims2EP9 2020-06-25 12-47-40

I went ahead and had them get married.

Sims2EP9 2020-06-25 12-48-38.jpg

Bottom is sick of having everyone around and decides to send everyone away.

Sims2EP9 2020-06-25 12-49-17

Just as Bottom is sending everyone home, Puck asks Hermia to go steady with him and she agrees.

Sims2EP9 2020-07-03 12-02-23

Early, early Sunday morning Oberon makes Mac n’ Cheese for the family.

Sims2EP9 2020-07-03 12-03-25

Titania is at work and Puck is asleep.  That means it’s a father/daughter meal.

Sims2EP9 2020-07-03 12-16-18 Sims2EP9 2020-07-03 12-17-39

Sunday work schedule results in promotions for Oberon and Puck.  Sadly, I had no clue about Titania’s schedule for Saturday night and she didn’t have promotion skills yet.  Her and Bottom studied all day Sunday though.

Sims2EP9 2020-07-05 14-46-19.jpg

Bianca Monty invited Oberon downtown.  She brought Kent Capp along with Patrizio and Isabella, which I think are her parents.  *shrug*

It didn’t take a genius to know something was bound to go wrong here.  Oberon ends the outing after the 3rd fight between Kent and Isabella.

Sims2EP9 2020-07-05 14-55-05.jpg

Oberon barely walks in the door before Titania takes him out for their very first woohoo as a married couple, but at the same time as her carpool notification pops up.  Hope it’s a quickie.  Risky was in effect, but she did not get pregnant.  I like the assumption that they adopted Bottom and Puck from family friends that passed away or something, rather than her/him being infertile.  In that regard, they can only rely on risky for them to get pregnant.

Sims2EP9 2020-07-05 14-57-48

Titania comes home with a promotion and heads to bed.  Puck wakes up to eat, Bottom eats and wants to play chess and get a logic point.  Oberon is still asleep after the hot tub shenanigans.

Summary:  So, I have never played this family before and they mostly just worked and skilled.  No Oceanography job showed up for Oberon, so maybe next time.  Titania wants to reach her golden anniversary, which is the main reason they got married.

Ending Wants:

Oberon: Reach charisma level 5, buy an easel, go fishing, blog about hobby, smustle dance, and dance with someone.

Titania: Reach cooking level 4, go fishing, go on vacation, be best friends with Herb Oldie, see a ghost, and reach mechanical level 4.

Puck: Buy a computer, ask on a date, buy a car, go to college (locked).

Bottom: Go fishing, be best friends with Beau, get an A+ report card, reach logic level 5.

Veronaville, Round 1: Capp (Consort)

Welcome to Veronaville.  We are playing the first 3 families in recommended order and the bin families in random order.  The list is on the household page.  I have not played this neighborhood much.  I think maybe once before?  So, I have no idea what really happens around here.

Darren Dreamer
Knowledge/Family – Become Chief of Staff

Dirk leaves for school and Darren hunts up all of the unpaid bills and paying as much as he can.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 12-40-19

The welcome wagon included Jennifer Burb, Peter Ottomas, and Brandi Broke.  They hung out all day.  Darren helps Dirk learn to study and that’s about it.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 12-52-44

Nina calls up for an outing and Darren has no excuse not to go.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 12-52-51

As Darren gets into the taxi, Dina rings the bell.  Dirk gossips with her for something to do.  As soon as Darren gets in the taxi, Dina does too.  Never seen that before.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 13-48-45

Darren is not impressed that the girl he wants to flirt with has her tongue down Don’s throat.  Good thing no Goth’s showed up on this outing.  It was Malcolm and Brandi, Nina and Dina, Don and that one pre-made married to the plantsim.  Greenwood?  I can’t recall.  Darren didn’t acknowledge his presence and is not in his relationship panel.

This was not an official outing, I guess. No scoring.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 13-49-00

Mal and Brandi were missing from the above pic because they were going at it in the photo booth.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 13-49-52

Molly was all smiles after watching the public woohoo.  Darren chatted with Molly before heading back to nab himself Nina.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 13-53-29

Thing progressed to crush and a very public woohoo, but nothing else came of it.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 13-53-52

Brandi and Dina became best friends.  Darren is now bored and heads home.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 13-58-09

Dirk keeps checking for a job in dance, with no luck.  He grabs an education job to tide him over.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-02-41

Today’s after school guest as Alex Goth.  They play games together and that’s about it.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-05-03

He gets to level 2!

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-08-38

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-09-48

Both guys get their wanted jobs.  Darren the next day and Dirk the day after.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-16-49

Dirk gets a promotion to level 3 on the first day.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-19-18

Dirk then invites Lilith over to help out with his date want.  Lilith then falls in love.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-22-10

Darren finally heads up to bed and Dirk gets a little busy with Lilith.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-25-00

Darren wants to be best friends with Molly.  He is nowhere close to that happening.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-25-59

Romeo Monty came over after school.  Dirk sent him on his way because he had to go to work.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-27-38

Free promotion!

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-34-49

I do believe Darren went on a self help book spree.  He just finished Anger Management.  Sunday night will be Fire Safety.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-36-21

Darren has an Impossible Want to work towards.  That will be some good points for the town.

Darren ending wants: Be best friends with Molly, buy a car, see a ghost, max all skills, max body skill, buy a piano.

Sims2EP9 2020-05-30 14-56-47

I didn’t realize that Dirk became an Overachiever.  That means he will be heading to Uni next round.  His uni want did roll away, but it kept coming back.  We finally just locked it in.

Dirk ending wants: Ask sim on a date, earn some money, play a computer game, go to university.
