How long does it take to snag a vampire? I guess it depends. If your name is Grape, it takes three days. If your name is Boo, it takes forever and a day. This is basically a non-chapter since the house is full for a good 12 days I believe.
I will start off by saying that I will never ponder why no one has died…ever again.
Meeting her one time netted her an inheritance? I don’t actually think Boo got anything.
I was very sad about this, we got the warning in the previous chapter, but he was one of my favorites.
He’s old now
Hehe…her name is cute. Dandelion Freeze.
Who? Thanks whoever you are!
Poor Squeaker D:
These are only the ones I remembered to get pics of. This took place over the 2 weeks we had to wait for the triplets to age up. All dads have passed on except Puck, who just hit elder and Nathan who is still YA, I think. Boo and Grape netted enough money to be worth about 700k. It was quickly invested into businesses and they only actually have enough to barely survive. I know Buttercup also hit full adult during this time too. I can’t recall anyone else.
Well, that takes care of the unpleasantness. Let’s get on with the update now.
Mint Slush – Vampire. Happily married to Snow Slush. Boo saw said vampire at a club and decided she needed to meet him.
She used her irresistible greet to no avail.
After three hours, she finally gave up. Oh hey..that’s that Keylime Pies stranger that left Boo gobs of money. I guess he liked her seduction attempts of Mint? No clue. He wasn’t there while she was wooing Mint. Strange.
The Genie babies went to a painting class and then got to hit the pool for a nighttime swim before curfew.
Sigh…I even added lighting to the Dojo. It seems it still isn’t enough.
Frosted Mint, Gold and Granite all went to logic class and gardening classes before hitting up the dojo. Only FM got enough accomplished for his first belt.
How not to catch a vampire…Criticize his family. Should I mention he and his wife are the only vampires in town? It’s him or nothing.
I was able to do a Smooth Recovery and all was well with them again.
Then we got word that Rum wouldn’t live forever.
So, I had her ditch, Fang and head off to say her goodbyes to Rum. He had an endless stream of female companionship, but Azure was his only child.
This is what it looks like when I send the kids to school. It’s a mess. Lag is really dragging the game down again, but we will stick it out.
Here is Nathan, the H daddy. After being freed and leaving the house, he made it to being a 2-star celeb in the photography occupation. I wish I could nab him for those 2-stars..LOL
We also got word that Tulip Splash wouldn’t live forever. I think she is an ex-wife of Dirin (Boo’s older brother), but I am not sure.
Boo was getting tired of playing Chase the Vampire. Granite was aged up and moved into the Splash Kid home to make room for a vampire baby (or IF if that didn’t work )
Grape played his own game of Chase the Vampire. She succumbed easily. This put Grape ahead of Boo in the vampire baby running. I was not amused.
It was even worse when Mint came in to go to bed and caught them….and didn’t care. I was surprised because I left Mint and Boo across town flirting while Grape took care of business. Lullaby first try.
A while later, Grape got word that his mom Cotton Candy would not live forever. It was his turn to say goodbye to a loved one. It was not cool that he chose to talk about Boo’s face and clothes.
Or that they then giggled and told secrets about Boo too.
It was finally (after the longest week of Boo’s life) time for the triplets to age up. Besides money falling from the sky every time someone died, this was the highlight of the week. Boo couldn’t nab a vampire OR an IF. Granite had three flirts, two girlfriends and a fiancé during the course of time he was moved out.
I was going to retake this, but that pic of alien Hibiscus was too amusing.
I couldn’t get a very good pic of her, but she is really pretty.
Another non-photogenic daughter. Still very pretty though.
Grape: Whatever either of you do, don’t get married. You either spend your time making babies that you never see or you spend that time raising kids that aren’t yours.
Snow gave birth to Blue Slush (Grape’s newest addition).
So here starts another week of chasing a vampire. He plays a mean game of hard-to-get. It’s also getting old. Boo invited him out to the gym for a “workout”. After a week of, Sorry, I don’t think so’s” Boo was shocked when he said yes.
Boo: Sooner or later you’re just gonna have to give in to my charms. We need you too! I have chased you around so much, that my wish panel is full of you. This is not good!
Then he finally gave in. That huge sigh of relief you just heard was mine.
They were at the gym. I was not going to let this opportunity pass me by. Three try for baby’s later…nothing! Boo ended up inviting him back home for two reasons. One, we didn’t really want to lose any bonuses for home babies. Two, they were both in dire need of a MMobile rejuvenation. It took all night to get him to give in to her.
The caveman gnome from the Consignment shop was a nice new addition in the last update. This update, one of the boys brought the Zen guy in the back home with them from the Dojo or somewhere. In the background, Boo has had to re-light Mint’s fire. He is driving me bonkers. Grape and all the kids went out for breakfast (on the other side of the world!)
If you can believe it, her attraction level to Mint is higher than what she has with Grape. To the fact that she is wishing to move in with Mint, Date Mint and have a child with Mint. Whatever his game was, I think he won.
Five tries. No lullaby. He finally had to leave for work and so did Boo.
Grape has his first enemy. He has always disliked her, but ever since she became a teen, he has done nothing but chase her around and argue with her, make fun of Boo and accuse her of being a diva. I finally got tired of it and had her complain about his inappropriateness. This just made her life even worse.
The graveyard is still filling up. This is the Starburst Shores section of the cemetery. The line of 4 are the current dads that are no longer living. In a backwards row, on the right is Rum, Francois, and Crème. Then two spaces for Licorice (his grave is still in the mausoleum, I believe) and Puck, followed by Razzmatazz. He only was an elder for like two days.
Frosted Mint’s birthday was now upon us. You can tell by the smile on his face that he cannot wait to escape this war zone.
I don’t blame him one bit. Go forth, multiply and be happy.
Boo finally got Mint back into her evil clutches.
Finally! There was finally a lullaby.
The next day found Boo standing outside work whispering to Floppy. I bet you’re wondering what Boo is whispering?
Boo: Fair warning, IF’s are next on the list. Hide if you don’t want to get knocked up by Grape.
(Snuggles has been missing and I only recently noticed. Either she didn’t make the move from Starburst or the game sent her out in emigration land )
She then stood for a little while and did the Maternity switch.
These are original Zephyr Hill townies coming out to haunt the town red.
Meanwhile, Blue (vampire baby) is now a toddler (!!) and Snow for some reason got out of her car in front of the Boo house. I had Grape finally become friends with her. She did not take it well.
Mint, Buttercup and Amber have been standing outside the stadium all night. Doing nothing. Just standing. So, I had Boo go and find out if they were stuck. Apparently not, because Mint was overjoyed about the baby news. Over Joyed. Happy. It was so sweet. I want to keep him. I saved him to my bin for purposes later on in life.
I was so unhappy, but it had to be done. Even Boo’s mood dropped some.
Boo: I can’t be with you, but maybe I’ll write a book about our secret love.
Boo then headed for her only grandchild and gave her a camera as a graduation gift. Amber graduated a billion years ago, but this is the first time they have ever met. I think Amber is older than her now.
She has had the grandchild graduation moodlet for years, but I know it’s not from Amber. Not sure how that is working out. Grape has no grandchildren and he has the moodlet too.
Boo then tutors Amber in cooking. Amber got two cooking skill levels!
Snow has been standing in front of the Boo house since before Grape dumped her.
Hello! Vampire! Vampire + sun = Ow! Go Home! *Reset sim* She died within the next two days, leaving Mint to raise Grape’s son.
So, as usual, those two are fighting. I tried to get Boo in there to intervene, but she kept dropping all commands and putting up Woohoo with Grape ones. Ugh!
Honey’s stats are dropping every minute she is around him. I finally made Boo go across town so I can try and stop this madness. Grape is yet again making fun of Boo. I spent the better part of the sim afternoon keeping Honey away from Grape and trying to up her mood. I forced Grape down to the basement and stuffed his queue up with painting three paintings on three easels. I left him there to either do all three or drop dead trying.
I then went in to overhead town mode and just watched the map tags moving around like ants for the day or two prior to the I baby. I made sure everyone went to school and stayed happy, but the lag was poo. Overhead mode seemed the way to go.
Finally after the longest two weeks ever. Finally, the vampire portion is done. Finite.
Puck is an elder! I lol’d at him aging up with his mask though.
In an attempt to combat the overcrowded school, Hoki is enrolled in the science academy.
Hoki: Hmmm? Is that…?
Hoki: It was! It certainly was my mother!
And then he took off home.
Granite’s love interest/wife/fiance or whatever dumped him. If Boo wasn’t in labor, I would have her console him. I am puzzled by the naked green guy.
Mint goes in to be with Boo.
Then leaves. Without Boo. Aha, off to work he goes, while Granite cries for his love and the green guy starts screaming bloody murder. Most excitement in months for me.
Boo brought a bundle of love home. If she was a magician, his name would be more fitting, but I couldn’t name him Indian Brown, International Orange or Inch Worm (bahahaha). His name is Illusion, a light pink. Poor baby.
Please, please SimGods, don’t let me suffer through another boring two weeks like that again. It took all day. Besides the random naked green guy and people dying left and right nothing interesting happened.
Stay tuned to find out if Grape and Honey can survive the rest of the teen years, the IF hunting starts next (there’s still an open spot in the house!), and the dropping in of new people for the Simverse. Unfortunately, with all the deaths, came all the aging up to elders too. The population of young has dwindled to about 10. I am dropping in some people for them all or Boo is going to end up procreating with Grape’s kids and vice-versa. That thought totally creeps me out.
