Week one: The Potters  


This is my second starting family, the Potters. Pretty obvious what the naming theme is this time XD. This is just a normal family as they rolled to have no challenges





This is Dean. He's a romance/popularity sim and here are his stats:
4/6/5/5/5
Turn ons/offs: Blondes; custom/fat people
LTW: Become hall of famer

To unlock the athletic career i need a player owned sports themed lot. So that's what Dean will be saving up for. Also, writing this i notice i've given him the same turn ons/offs as Rinoa. Oops.



He starts off with $24,000 so he gets a better house than Rinoa



It has two floors, but the top floor is a shell for now. Building the house has left him with barely any money



First thing he does? Lounge around. but i'm not having any of that. We need money, quickly



So i send him out to get digging



Mr Humble's computer will come in handy for selling to get some extra money. The gym i built is around $25,000



Daryl (simplesimphony). He really does not appreciate the random stray that went up to him



The welcome wagon consists of Lobo (simplesimphony), that's it. And he's looking slightly different as i decided to change my alien skin default as i didn't like the grey one so much any more



I have Dean greet him as i'd like my families to get on, seeing as they have to populate this city together



However Lobo is more interested in catching butterflies



Not going to happen!



This is what Dean has dug up by the end of the first day



Fire! I love how the fire makes Dean's cuisine interest go up XD



He looks pretty calm about it though



There are no emergency services yet so Dean has to deal with it by himself



Dean: bastard fire



However i make him eat the burnt food as food is expensive and there is no grocery store yet



Annie (hollie_sims). So pretty



However she's pretty annoying towards Dean so he doesn't like her very much



Wrong number? But the discount is great anyway seeing as the house is barely furnished



Candice (hollie_sims)



This is where i should mention that Dean is a rubbish romance sim. He doesn't like any of the girls he's met so far apart from Rinoa



They are more interested in each other than him anyway



End of day two's haul



Dean: Who put that water pipe there?!

Well without it you wouldn't be able to bathe or use the toilet!



Sierra (hollie_sims). Sadly she's only interested in girls so no good for Dean



Dean manages to cook something without burning it. I was hoping for another fire but never mind



Day three's haul



Lucy (hollie_sims). finally a blonde



And he likes her! However after chatting for a while he sends her home as he still needs to make money for his gym



Day four's haul. No treasure chest today but every little helps



I sold everything apart from this little guy



Day five gets him the last treasure chest he needed



So he's able to purchase his gym! And that's the athletic career unlocked for everyone now



Its still mid-afternoon so he invites Lucy over. she brings this girl, Heidi-Anne (hollie_sims), another very pretty blonde. Dean also has two bolts with her



However he definitely prefers Lucy



She tried to steal the gnome but apparently the wall is in the way



Puffball (kezwick). they have one bolt



And Dean continues to fail at being a romance sim by denying her advances



He only has eyes for Lucy



At least he has some romance sim aspects



I love these two together :)



Meanwhile, on the other side of the wall, Puffball is busy ventrilo-farting Heidi-Anne. Kind of pointless when no one else is around, But Heidi-Anne is embarrassed anyway, poor girl.



Lucy decided to try and steal the gnome again. I love the evil laugh they do



Dean says bye to Heidi-Anne with a kiss. Maybe woohooing Lucy has unlocked his romance aspirations



He frees the fireflies Heidi-Anne caught as i feel sorry for them being trapped in a jar



Saturday morning Dean heads down to the gym for its first opening day. There's not much there at the moment, just these machines. Outside there is a football goal and a basketball hoop



The till area includes a magazine rack and perfume stand, as people tend to be smelly after the gym and there is no shower yet



Dean, that ballet barre is for the customers, not you



Starscream (kezwick). I love how unique she looks



Not much happens at the gym so he goes home and invites Lucy over to ask her to move in



She comes with $10,000 which is great. I use some to buy a computer and TV but the rest will go towards buying new equipment for the gym. she also had a job in the medical career so i get her to quit. Here are her stats:
Knowledge/popularity
7/4/1/8/5
Turn ons/offs: red hair;brown hair/stink
LTW: Become prestidigitator

Her LTW is achievable, she just needs to max her charisma first



They bond over burnt grilled cheese sandwiches



And head to bed where love happens in more ways than one



Sunday morning and the athletic career is available so Dean accepts it straight away



Dean is a secret sims 3 player



Spur of the moment he proposes to Lucy



She happily accepts



Dean: What have i done?

I think he regrets it already



Dean: Get me out of here!



I love it when sims look out of the window though what he';s looking at i have no idea as there is nothing out there



Looks like someone is pregnant



So a quickie wedding is in order. I want children to have the proper surname



More woohoo to celebrate



First bump :)



And monday leaves us with Lucy eating cereal



And Dean watching TV

I think your sims really wanted to get into my BaCC, but i don't mind, they are all so pretty :)

Really good! Also, I've decided to take a page out of your book and charge taxes to save up for a university. I think that's the only way I'll get one in Maplecliffe. lol.

I like the idea of taking uni tax before getting a uni, it takes a lot of work but i want to make the challenge as hard as possible lol
