2-1

Sorry it’s been so long!  My son’s terrible twos have not stopped, even though he has turned 3, and my daughter’s birthday is the 21st of this month, so lots of things going on.  🙂  I also got back into GW2.

Okay, as usual, let’s recount chapter 2.0, refresh your memory, and mine.  So we had to start from scratch due to hard drive failures, and we have Genevieve and Riley.  Riley went over to the Sackholmes and checked out what was goin down over there.  Mason looked like he had/has decent enough genetics so ON THE SPOT, we (mostly her good looks and my I’ve-been-playing-this-game-for-fourteen-years skills) wooed the pants off him, almost literally, and they married.  Riley Ditched Mason and Gen to go off to college for a degree that’ll help her get further in the criminal career track earlier so that it won’t be so painful when she takes maternity leave.  Riley also mastered the Alchemy skill while in college and drank some fancy green stuff and turned into a witch! =o who saw that coming?  No one!  Witches are my favorite supernatural simply because their lifespan is the same as a humans and I don’t particularly like long lifespans.  We managed to build a house from stealing tons of things from the dorm.  Whatever, legacies are hard!  =P  On break from term Riley got pregnant for the first time and sold a whooole bunch of elixirs for extra cash.  She had a little boy named Seth and returned to university to wrap up her degree.  She almost burned down the whole dorm but everything turned out mostly fine.  Before graduation she went around turning things to gold and I sold them for extra cash.  Of course there was a huge fucking traffic jam so we didn’t actually go to graduate, we just got our degree and no extra trait.  >:c  laaame.  We ended off with Seth aging up and we got to see that pink hair from Genevieve!  Of course it comes into play this generation, where as none of her actual children ever freaking had it.  Of course.

Side note, in the save before the hard drive crash of 2014, all of Genevieve’s grandchildren save for like 2? had pink hair.  Somehow I think that’s going to be how it works this time too.

When I first loaded up I noticed we had close to §23K so I decided to tweak the house, make more room and what not.  I spent most of our money on a backyard area for future kids.

Only till after this picture was taken did I realize I forgot to CAS the swingset.  Woops.  I did it right after this was taken.

Screenshot-385

I haven’t re-installed Aurora Springs so I don’t have the rad baby gear, but we might as well do it in-person, only one baby this time.  😛

Screenshot-387

Well, these two are getting along great, if you were curious.

Screenshot-388

Built an entire new bathroom, and STILL, you piss in the grass?

-5.

Screenshot-389

The things this poor clock-light has seen.

Screenshot-390

“oh shit… ohhhhhhhhh shit.”

Screenshot-391

“This better not be what I think it is.”

There wasn’t a jingle or anything.  😮  did not see this coming.

Screenshot-392

I downloaded a mod that makes it funner for parents to teach toddlers their skills so they’re more likely to do it on free will, which made sense to me, so its there now.

Screenshot-393

. . . You’re just going across the back yard, do you really need the stroller?

“Yes, so I can imagine I’m actually leaving this damn house.”

Screenshot-394

“Pony!!!!”

Screenshot-395

She’s such a loving granny.

Screenshot-396

Riley popped during work.  Mason still has a wish for a girl so time to watermelon up.

I wanted to sell her elixirs but she kept getting reset when she went to interact at the register, so I just sold them from her inventory instead.

Screenshot-397

Days passed, nothing really happened except Riley kept gettin bigger and bigger.  She should birth tonight, I think.

Screenshot-398

“Gotta get you potty trained, Seth, we don’t want to be changing two baby’s diapers!”

Screenshot-399

I also learned that Riley could ask Gen to clean up, and Gen would go around and clean everything.  Yup.  Guess we’re using that interaction more.

Screenshot-400

The love is still strong.

Screenshot-401

A little too strong!

Screenshot-402

She walked all the way to the hospital.

Screenshot-403

At 11:46pm, Lucy Greywind was born with Loner locked in and random-rolled Neurotic.  Lucy’s favorites are Pop music, Firecracker Tofu, and Lilac.

Screenshot-404

At 11:52pm, Quinn Greywind was born with Heavy Sleeper locked in and random-rolled Virtuoso.  Quinn’s favorites are Rock music, Potato and Truffle Torte, and Hot Pink.

New Rule, I can change favorite color for my heir/ess because this purple/lilac/ whatever bs is driving me nuts.  I need variety!

Screenshot-405

Then she walked back home.  I mean its a couple of blocks, but still, its raining, and she has a newborn.

Only when we got home though, did I realize we did not have cribs for these two cuties.

Screenshot-406

“Sorry we moved you into the hall, lil man, but you didn’t want to be woken up every few hours by your sisters on the night before your birthday, did you?”

And that’s how I solved the space problems.  I also think that it’s high time we actually built a house instead of just throwing things together so I’m going to see what I can do on that front.

Also, Genevieve is 91 days old.  :/  If she survives this chapter it’ll be a miracle.

Screenshot-407

Seth’s birthday!

Screenshot-408

His favorite color is Irish Green but I didn’t want him walking around in all green, so his [everyday] outfit is mostly brown with a green shirt.  Around this time I had everyone get out of the house [I don’t think this counts as actions since I need to rebuild, and I’m not tending to needs or anything].  I decided to go with what tumblr tells me is Pastel Goth, which, in my opinion, is very Riley.

Screenshot-409

Here is what the house looks like when the sun hits it, and the sun only really hits it from the back.  It’s a pastel purple with lots of black and a cream color.  A lot of CAS was used during building this, a lot, because for some reason I put a whole lot of freakin effort into the houses for this family.  I ended up save/quitting and taking a few day break after building because geez did that wear me down.

Of course, I didn’t CAS everything, all the furniture probably looks the same because I just got eager to play after a while.

Screenshot-424

So this is the house, I tried to only use furniture we had, the only thing new, I think, is the bunkbeds I put up for Seth and anyone else, I guess.

Screenshot-425

Ugh. Damn IFs, I thought I got a mod to destroy you all!

Screenshot-426

“Hey, Seth, want grammie to read you a bedtime story?”

“YEA!”

Such a good grandma, please don’t die, Gen.

Of course, though, Riley has the only kids book in her inventory so that didn’t happen.

Screenshot-427

Figure I should include some shots of these two cuties, but they won’t be that small forever, so lots of pictures.

My daughter turns one next week, sorry if I’m feeling a bit all oo-ey gooey.

Screenshot-428

Mason’s a wonderful father, though, he takes care of the girls, and he’s not very much fun to watch, because he just… has hobbies?

He works out, eats, sleeps, showers (sometimes), and takes care of the girls.  He’s really calm and stuff.  I also haven’t made him a sim card, download, or new outfits.  :/  woops.  Maybe later.

Screenshot-429

Oh, come on Gen!  It’s right in front of you!  You have 34 minutes!  Come onnnnn!!!!

Screenshot-430

“Oh, so tired…”

USE THE TOILET, GENEVIEVE! GOD DAMN IT ALLLLLLLLLLLL

Screenshot-431

“I don’t have to pee anymore?”

Screenshot-432

Oh god….  :/

She died on Spooky Day…

Screenshot-433

Riley was very struck by her mother’s passing, and unfortunately, Seth’s never going to get that bedtime story..

Screenshot-434

Genevieve got a grave with lovely flowers and stuff, she didn’t get a fancy urn because, well, we lot her entire lifetime before so..

As it is, she brought in thirty points from the births of her six children, but also negated those thirty points with six self wettings.  So I guess she was the best founder for this ISBI?  I don’t know, I’m going to miss her so much..

Screenshot-3

I really hope the sparkly mailbox doesn’t mean IFs, because I am prettyyyy sure I had a mod to get rid of them unless I accidentally deleted it.

Screenshot-4

This is Mason’s first fail! 😮  Woahhhh.  -5 though, regardless.

MasonGreywind

And it was high time that Mason got a makeover and his own sim card, so I finally got down to that.  Of course, I was lazy and only did 4/6 outfits.

Then my game froze right after Riley mastered spellcasting.  So.  Yay.  For some reason though, the game keeps freezing and crashing on me, so I think I’ll end this chapter early and deal with it all later.

2 fails, so -10 points.

Unfortunately, in the hard drive crash, I lost my fancy title cards, so this is the best I can do for now till I redownload photoshop.

Last time : It was the last chapter of Generation One, we got a bird who doesn’t exist anymore, took a greeting card that doesn’t exist anymore, and got a dragon.  that doesn’t exist anymore.  Riley and Alex grew up and Riley got the torch, which is exciting, then I had 4 and a half chapters (5 was a draft and wasn’t queued) and my hard drive had to be replaced, point is….  We’re essentially starting over.  Still in Dragon Valley, but we only have Genevieve and Riley.  Since Genevieve’s birthday was going to be three days after Riley’s, I aged her up when they were in Create A Family so that we can get this show on the road.  Of course this means she’ll be dead soon. And tragically, this also means that we lost all our fantastic family portraits.  Its very depressing.

Oh yea, and I haven’t downloaded much CC, but I changed my default skin, and I don’t have Genevieve’s hair so.  I also lost her dress.  I haven’t gone through and installed much lately.  I’m lazy.

Screenshot-47

First, I switched lots.

Screenshot-48

And since we’re essentially starting over, that means, well, starting over. Gen’s tent is on the left, and Riley’s is on the right, we’ve got a tiny kitchen and a tiny bathroom, and a fire pit.

Screenshot-49

So here’s Riley, and that in the back is Gen, of course.  It’s time to go meet some spouse candidates.

MC says that Riley is +2 for Males and -1 for Females.  So… I assume if a girl is pretty enough, Riley would seriously consider switching teams?

Screenshot-51

“NO! I’M NOT READY, DON’T TAKE THE PICTURE!” First up, the Sackholmes.

Screenshot-52

“Okay, I’m ready.”  “Great, can I go inside and talk to your brother?”

Screenshot-53

“Hey sexy.”  “Hey sexy yourself, sexy.”

And so I think we found a winner!  Score!

Screenshot-54

*swoon* Oh yes, a winner indeed.

Screenshot-55

Meanwhile, in the bathroom I forgot to buy a light for, Genevieve plays on her phone.

Screenshot-56

Mascot.  Tada.

Screenshot-57

Portal.  Tada.

Screenshot-58

“Is it just hot in here, or just me?”  “It’s summer so…  ooooooh.”

Unfortunately my save was at the point where she was happily married and everything was amazing, and pardon me but I am so eager to get back to happily ever after.  Of course, it wasn’t with Mason..  But he’s pretty and not old!

Screenshot-59

Sookie, I mean, Susie’s jelly.

Screenshot-60

YAY, friendship!

Screenshot-61

“u so sexy” “no u so sexy”

Oh, stop.  Seriously.  Stop.

Screenshot-62

“A girl after my own heart!”

Damn right she is!

Screenshot-63

First kiss, hurray!

Screenshot-64

“So.. date me?  Exclusively?”

Screenshot-65

“Yea, of course.”

Screenshot-66

“I know we’ve only known each other a few hours, but…”

I have skills, done this a thousand times before.

Screenshot-67

“But what?”  “I have something…”

Screenshot-68

“To put on your finger, if you’ll let me?”

Screenshot-69

“OH MY GOSH, I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!”

Screenshot-70

“Well, believe it now before the ring vanishes.”

Screenshot-71

“Wanna get married now?” “Ugh, my brother’s getting married in the kitchen, so trashy” = Susie’s Text.

Fuck you too, Susie.

Screenshot-72

And so, they were wed!  Happy day!

Screenshot-73

“Mason, hurry up, I want to show you to our teeeeent!”

Screenshot-74

“It’s on the right, now that there’s someone here to make sure mom doesn’t kill herself while I’m gone, I’m off to college.”

Screenshot-75

“So, you’re new, what are you selling?”  “Um.  I just married your daughter.” “Oh FANTASTIC, so you’re selling grandchildren!  I’ll take twelve.”

Screenshot-76

“NOW.”

Screenshot-77

“Okay, babe, take care of mom, I’m off to get a higher education so I can be rolling in money.”

Fun fact, Mason is in law enforcement, and Riley wants to be a super thief. And so we went to college!  Hurray!  This’ll be quick, I promise.

Screenshot-78

Yay University!

“I can’t believe I’ll be living with these people for like two weeks.”

If only University in real life was two weeks.

Screenshot-79

“There’s gotta be a job for me to do around here so I won’t go home broke.”

Don’t you have the Klepto trait?

“Why yes, yes I do.”

Don’t I have that free your klepto mod?

“Why yes, yes you do.”

Job taken care of.

Screenshot-80

She dropped her phone and cracked the screen.  Live with it, Riley, we can’t spend the §150 to repair it.

Screenshot-81

“Hmm, yes.  I will take all of this.”

that a girl, Riley, never know when we’ll need something to eat.  She went to that dayjob to grade papers and made §250.  We’re going to have to get a lot more than that if we want to finish out her degree.  😡

Screenshot-83

Went to a party, drank some then left.

Screenshot-86

This guy wet himself.

Screenshot-87

-5.  God damn it, Riley, I told you to use the potty!

But of course, the dorm only has restrooms on the second floor.  #Logic.

Then it was first day of classes and the boring parts started.

Screenshot-88

She ate a candy bar between classes.

Screenshot-89

. . . So I realized I could sell the furnishings in her dorm room for cash.  I bought her this then moved some of the facilities into her room so she never has to leave it, and also, so that she doesn’t have to wait for someone to vacate the shower.

Screenshot-90

I think she broke her arm.

Screenshot-91

“hey mason, just woke up, learnin new things is hard.  make sure mom doesn’t die, xoxo, r”

Screenshot-92

She does potions instead of studies because we have two weeks, she’ll be fine.

Screenshot-93

“Oh geez, it is not supposed to smell like that!”

This happens a lot more than I would like to admit.

Screenshot-94

She also works out.  Because criminal career means she has to be able to run away.

20-2

Awh, isn’t that sweet.

Screenshot-95

This is not so sweet.  I do not care if one of the roommates gets abducted.  :c

Every time I load up my game these days its because I’ve gone to find more CC.  I haven’t really gotten anything new for Riley to wear though, it’s mostly hair.  I’m very picky with CC clothes, I don’t slap just anything in my game.

Screenshot-96

Goodbye random roomie!  (this is a few days later than the shot above it, for the record, that’s why the trees are losing their leaves.)

Screenshot-97

“Oh yea, I’ma probe this one so hard.”

Screenshot-98

“Ohhh yea, fuck sleep, I’m ready to take on the entire world!”

This is a necessity for university, I’m sure.

Screenshot-99

Just makin’ elixirs.

Screenshot-100

This one is green.

Screenshot-101

It makes a green cloud.

Screenshot-102

Plot twist!  Riley’s a witch now!

Screenshot-103

I also found a different hair for her to help the transformation into witchhood along.  I don’t have anything else for her to wear that I feel suits her edgy, yet pretty cute personality.  She’s what tumblr would call “Pastel Goth” and I don’t have any clothes for that.

Screenshot-104

Trying to get that spellcasting skill up as quick as possible, but before I knew it it was time for her last round of exams and time to pack up her dorm room.

I swear I didn’t steal much from it.

That’s a lie, I totally did.

Screenshot-106

And with an A and an unrendered bathroom stall, we headed home to build a house and mostly furnish it with stolen things.  We bought Gen a bed and furnished a nursery, but mostly we just spent the cash we gained selling things at the Dorm on walls, wall coverings, etc.

And thanks to me downloading a shit ton of Patterns and Alice : Madness Returns conversions, this house speaks to me on a deeper level, like sure, the layout could be better, but by the end of it, I needed to start saving money, but its gorgeous, imo.

Screenshot-107

Here it is from the outside.

Screenshot-108

When you walk in you are greeted by the dining area and kitchen.  The door on the left is to Genevieve’s room.

Screenshot-109

Look immediately to your left and the living area, complete with nifty little shelves is here, along with a door to the study, more on that later.

Screenshot-110

This is the hall, off to the right of the Kitchen.  Straight ahead is Riley and Mason’s room, the left is the bathroom, and the right is the nursery.

Screenshot-111

Riley & Mason’s room.

Screenshot-112

Future child’s room.

Screenshot-113

Genevieve’s room.

Screenshot-114

First half of the study.

Screenshot-115

And the second half of the study.

Screenshot-116

“Can’t believe I’m married!  Shouldn’t there be a ring here?”

Screenshot-117

“There’s no sink, what am I supposed to do with this bowl!?”

Sorry, Gen, that’s my bad.

Screenshot-118

I figured we’d knock one of her wishes out while we were home…  The baby wish.  😉

Screenshot-119

Gen, you are right in front of the toilet, shoo Mason out and get you business done.

Screenshot-121

Or not. -5.

Screenshot-122

Hmmm wonder what’s goin on with Riley.

Screenshot-123

“Again!?  This isn’t fair!!”

Screenshot-124

“Oh my god, I can’t do anything, I feel terrible!”

Screenshot-125

Ugh, I had Riley upgrade that toilet to self cleaning but I guess it needs to be cleaned first before it starts doing it on its own?  #frustration.

-5.

Screenshot-126

Welp, who didn’t see that comin?

Screenshot-127

I placed the alchemy shop so she could sell her elixirs, and then somehow we ended up camping out here?  It was just convenient?

Screenshot-128

She just kinda stuck around there for a full twenty four hours.

Screenshot-129

She picked up a few things.

Screenshot-130

“You didn’t see a thing, understand?”

Screenshot-131

When she finally returned home she stank, and had to fix the shower.

Screenshot-132

I changed Gen’s hair and hair color because gray just doesn’t suit her, but dull/grayish pink works better.

Screenshot-133

“Okay, Fishy…”

Screenshot-134

“OH CRAP, OH CRAP!”

Screenshot-135

“Whew, I survived.”

Screenshot-136

“Oh shit, I vaporized the fish.”

Screenshot-138

… Gross.

Screenshot-139

“Don’t worry, I’ll change it.”

Screenshot-140

Happy couple doing happy couple things.  It’s Leisure day.

Screenshot-141

No clue where Gen is going in her long john jamjams.

Screenshot-142

The berrified sims 1 mail carrier.

Screenshot-143

“OHHHHHH, hairy llama balls, that smarts!  Mason, I’m in labor!”

Screenshot-144

“We’ll put the baby riiiight over there-”

“NOW IS NOT THE TIME, RILEY!”

Screenshot-145

This is our first of Generation Three : Seth Greywind.  Couch Potato and Clumsy, and his favorites are Epic music, Vegetarian Grilled Salmon, and Irish Green.  He’s also a Taurus.

Screenshot-146

Parenthood, adorable.  I downloaded tons of stuff for infants, but I haven’t installed it all just yet.

Screenshot-148

The fighting over Seth begins.

Right after this Riley headed back to University to quickly wrap up her degree.

Screenshot-149

Back at her dorm I touched it up a bit, since we only need a toilet and shower, since she makes her own food (apples) and uses elixirs for combating sleep, I kind of cleaned it out.  I brought a few things from home.  I’m taking that kitty stereo with us when we leave, I love it.

Then I decided to see if I could get her a cuter outfit going on.

Screenshot-150

Here’s her new look.  I’ve got to get some more clothes into my game.  :/  I’m sure her hair and clothes will change again once I do.

Screenshot-151

I got her the magic hands LTHP Reward.  😀  She’s gunna be a total bad ass.

Screenshot-152

Umm…  Maybe she’ll be a bad ass later?

Screenshot-153

Just gunna magic away this puddle..

Screenshot-155

Really should have thought this through more…

Screenshot-157

Oh shit, I really should have thought this through more!

Screenshot-158\

Okay, no need to fear, we can totally handle this.

Screenshot-159

And then she put the fire out.  Whew.  I need to think before I act more.

Screenshot-160

Finals!

Screenshot-161

“Uh… did you make that piss puddle?”

“I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!”

Screenshot-162

“Gunna take that as a yes.  Guess I’ll have to punish you.”

Screenshot-163

“I don’t understand!!!”

“Yea, you won’t.”

Screenshot-164

“Let that be a lesson to all roommates who leave a gigantic piss puddle.”

After turning things into gold and selling them for when we get home I went to check up on roommate guy.

Screenshot-166

-_-  Guess we’re not getting a statue for the yard.  Man, though, that’d be a gorgeous collection.

Screenshot-167

She got an A, of course.

Screenshot-168

 

The traffic jam to graduate is just ridiculous.

Screenshot-169

Okay, everyone off to the right please, I need Riley to get into that building and get that 6th trait.  :c  because in the last save she didn’t.  And I felt ripped off!  Not this time!

Screenshot-170

She moved, but no trait or diploma…  :/

Screenshot-174

Yes, Riley, there is snow.

Screenshot-173

But no diploma.  😦

Screenshot-203

I installed all my infant things and lo and behold, Seth has pink hair.  Also, back from university.

Seth is a watermelon.

Screenshot-204

Please do not burn the house down….

He didn’t.  Thank the lord.

Screenshot-205

Marriage Exercises.

Screenshot-206

Magic, while Genevieve gets in the way.

Screenshot-208

I was just two seconds too late, but Mason almost tripped and killed Seth by smashing him into the wall.  Don’t worry, the baby is fine.  I promise.

Screenshot-211

Cake time for Seth, our teeny watermelon.

Screenshot-212

He’s adorable, and I’ve decided this is the perfect spot to leave off for this chapter!

Welcome to the last chapter of Generation One of the Greywind ISBI.  It’s been a long trek getting here, hasn’t it?  It has for me, at least!

Last chapter Genevieve cracked down on the failing grades in the house, and there was a second prom which all of the kids attended.  Riley was crowned Prom Queen and Alexander, Prom King.  Multiple fights broke out, and Riley got herself a love interest named Deshaun.  Then, in the middle of prom, Aislin left work and did not make it home.  She died of old age outside of the diner.  We had to get our summer greeting card without her, and her resting place is by a new pond out back.  She did come out to visit but then she looked to have glitched and was staying out during the daytime so I remedied that by deleting her all together.  The four oldest kids had a birthday party into adulthood and moved out, leaving only Genevieve, Riley, and Alexander in the house- well, with Rufus, of course.

19-1

I used nraas to give them money after they moved out and I got this notification so they wouldn’t end up disappearing from the town.  I look forward to their updates!

19-2

Aislin’s influence is still here, even after death.

19-3

Wow, really, I thought you’d become a ghost buster, Liam, but whatever…

19-4

And Charlotte, so basically everyone that doesn’t have the LTW?

19-5

Oh, nevermind then.  I guess it’s now family run?

Screenshot-860

We’re going to keep trying at her LTW while she’s still under my control but I honestly don’t have high hopes for it.

19-6

But it looks like Violet and Jason Stackhouse Mason Sackholme are hitting it off!

19-7

Adorable.

19-8

Charlotte changed careers, I figured she might.

Screenshot-861

Puffster’s out and about more since we’re really pushing for that LTW.

Screenshot-862

Without all the kids and Aislin the house seems so dull.  :/  Geez, I never thought I’d end up being bored around here!  I guess, all in all, that’s probably a good thing, though.

Screenshot-863

I guess I should decide now if I want Rufus to have puppies or not.  I guess I can start a doggy legacy?  I’ve never done that before.  He’s still got some life in him, after all!

Actually he just has 6 days before he becomes an elder.  I’m not much for dogs anyway.  I’m more of a cat person.  We just had Rufus because I couldn’t make myself get rid of him when he moved in with Aislin.  Trust me, I thought about it too.

19-9

Not surprised there.  Watch out, she pisses herself.

Screenshot-864

We went looking for seeds for the garden, just because, why not.

Screenshot-865

We found a birdy.

Screenshot-866

He’s such a pretty bird!!!  Look at him!!  LOOK AT HIM!

Screenshot-867

“Hey, birdy birdy?  Wanna be my friend?  I’m going to be an elder in a week and could use someone to spend some time with.”

Screenshot-868

“Oh aren’t you a pretty birdy!  You’re going to be my best friend!”

In truth this looks really sad, her preparing for elderhood and life on freewill with a bird.

Screenshot-869

“I shall name you Hootoot!”

“Whooo~”

“Yes, you like that, don’t you!”

Screenshot-870

I also got some lawn gnomes for no doggies and more kitties!!  Yay Kitties!  I’ve got my kitty in my lap right now, she’s fluffy and she purrs and I love her.

Screenshot-871

“This is going to be your new home, don’t mind Riley, she only comes in here to sleep, and I love her dearly but this is your room now.”

Replacing the kids already.

Screenshot-872

“Who’s a pretty birdy?  Do you like your tree?  We’re going to have so much fun!”

Screenshot-873

Now she’s teaching him songs, I love her.  This birdy is the prettiest.

19-11

Meanwhile Violet and Jason Stackhouse Mason Sackholme are doing pretty well.

Screenshot-874

Alexander loves not having his four older siblings around to take up the spotlight, now he can dance like he’s always wanted to dance!

In the freezing morning of autumn.

19-12

Nice to know Aislin II is doing well.  ❤  I kind of really miss those kids.

19-13

I always knew he’d want independance from his sisters.  What with Charlotte all unstable and Aislin II insane, Violet’s gotta worry about those two, she probably doens’t even Have time for Liam.

19-14

Kitties!

I accidentally closed the message that said Liam was gettin kinda romantical with some pretty redhead.

19-15

Charlotte, way to go, make that money!

19-16

And I got this for y’all.  That’s who Liam’s with.

19-17

Whatever, John, get that stick out of your butt!

19-18

Oh no!  Liam and Teagan aren’t blissfully happy.  😦

Screenshot-875

For a couch potato Alexander sure loves to dance.  Outside.  There’s music inside too, Alex…

Screenshot-876

Still working on the garden, we got a banana tree from one of those seeds!  Yay!  And some random flowery shit.

Screenshot-877

Hootoot likes his ball.  I like Hootoot.

19-19

Way to go Violet!

19-20

Nice, Char.

Screenshot-878

Just dance away everything.

19-21

Woah, Violet!  Nice!  Gen, you’re gunna be a grandma!!!!

19-22

…. woah.  hussy!

Screenshot-879

Riley actually has an A in school right now.  I knew she’d do well.  She always just did her homework like a good girl, never skipped, she’s really earned the torch, once she ages up.

19-23

See?  Full green.

19-24

I accidentally took this right after hovering over a plant, that’s why it looks funny, but yay, Violet’s getting married to Jason Stackhouse Mason Sackholme!!!

19-25

Get ’em young, Aislin II.

Screenshot-880

Spooky day came, which meant we needed our new greeting card, crazy how there are only three of them now.  I decided to let them play around the festival.

19-26

. . .

*bursts into tears*

Aislin should be in this picture!!!! SHE DIDN’T EVEN MAKE IT TO HER ANNIVERSARY!!!  ;-;

Screenshot-881

“I am going to win, I will steal my way to the top!”

That’s not how it works, Alexander.

Screenshot-882

“OH GOD DYING!”

“BREATHE, RILEY, BREATHE!”

Screenshot-883

“Yea, I know how to do this.  I love pie.”

Screenshot-884

“….. I just wanted to do my homework…”

Screenshot-885

“Okay, I’m leaving now.”

Screenshot-887

We found this dragon and he didn’t have a name so that means he didn’t belong to anyone, so I named him Urple and now he’s ours.

19-27

I don’t know why, either, Charlotte, maybe its that Unstable trait.

19-28

WHAT!?  Oh my god, he did not just break up with my pregnant Violet!!!

Screenshot-888

Riley, bein artistic.

She got a skill point!

Screenshot-889

Oh, hey, Aislin.

“‘Sup.”

Don’t glitch out on us again or I’ll delete you.  Again.

Screenshot-890

“No promises.”

I also realized that I purged Riley’s crush away.  Woopsies.

19-29

Oh… guess that’s not going well either.

Screenshot-891

That’s a good ghosty, back to your grave.

19-30

That’s nice.

19-31

😦  Shame.

Screenshot-892

Rufus is still cute.

Screenshot-893

“Geez it smells like death!”

Screenshot-894

“Oh come on….”  “NO.  i mean… hooo.hooo.”

19-32

I did not realize that Aislin II swung that way.

Either way, the day has come for Genevieve to pass the torch onto Riley.  I did it early in the morning because I’m too eager to wait and stuff.  Also because I’m tired and its near my bedtime and I just want her to be all grown up!

Pictures are coming, but Alexander had Neat locked in and got Professional Author as his LTW.  Riley got to chose her trait, and random rolled Great Kisser, and through my dice rolling, got the Become A Master Thief LTW.

AlexanderGreywind

Because his LTW has to do with a bit of control I’m moving Alex out.  I’m sure we’ll see him around.  I like to keep up on the updates on the kids, as you can probably tell.

RileyGreywind

Riley Greywind, everyone!  Our new torchholder!  Her full traits are Great Kisser, Snob, Genius, Artistic, Kleptomaniac, she likes Songwriter Music, Goopy Carbonara, and Violet.  Her LTW is to be the Master Thief!

As usual, check the Downloads page for her and Alex!

1.8

1-8

Well, hello there!  Nice to see you again!

Last time on the GRISBI we went through the mail with Genevieve a few times, threw a party for the twins so they could age up into teens, and then we threw a pool party for Leisure Day.  It was a pretty chill chapter all around, but I’m sure we all needed that after 1.6, ammirite?

First lets go through our prospect Gen2 TorchHolders : Aislin II has 5 fails, and a D.  Violet has 9 fails, and a D.  And Riley has 3 fails and a C.  We can basically just go with Riley at this point, but who knows, things could turn around since now the kids are using those tablets!

Screenshot-808

While the kids were at school, Gen cleaned up the house a bit.  I checked their grades towards the end of the day and Riley went up to a B.

We’ll have to go get our summer greeting card after school.

18-1

Oh right.  Nevermind then?

Screenshot-809

“You all are in for it, Mom’s already laying into Violet outside-”

“I TOLD YOU TO GET THESE GRADES UP, VIOLET!!”

“Shit, I better do my homework..”

“WHAT DO YOU DO AT SCHOOL!?  I THOUGHT YOU WERE DOING YOUR HOMEWORK!!  YOU’RE LUCKY YOU’RE NOT GROUNDED, BUT WE ALREADY BOUGHT THAT FREAKING PROM DRESS.”

18-2

Crazy.  I guess when the bar is completely red and you make it less red you get a raise.  Good job, Aislin.

18-3

Yea, all our failures (those with D or more).

18-4

Don’t be a hussy, Vi.

18-5

Apparently Riley is gettin it on..

18-6

With this guy.

18-7

Well, there are only so many dresses in the sim universe, Vi, get over it.

18-8

Just like she stole this legacy, Riley stole the crown!  Get it?  Cos she’s a klepto?

18-9

She would.

18-10

I kind of expected this…

18-11

Yes, I bet he’s very handso- OH GOD NO.

Screenshot-810

Aislin!

18-12

Now is NOT the time, Charlotte!

Screenshot-812

Oh god why…

She didn’t even make it to her anniversary!!!  This isn’t fair!

18-13

You’re the joke, Violet!

18-14

That is exactly how a prom queen should behave.

18-15

That’s great, Alex, BY THE WAY YOUR MOM IS DEAD.

Screenshot-813

;-;

18-16

Way to go, Vi, by the way, your mom’s dead.

18-17

Let’s hope not.

18-18

That’s because you’re evil.

Screenshot-814

“So this is it?”

Screenshot-815

“Okay.”

18-19

Fuck you too.

Screenshot-816

“Aislin….”

Screenshot-818

-5 for Charlotte.

Screenshot-819

Look!  Everyone’s sleeping!  Even Rufus!

Screenshot-821

This is Aislin’s resting place for now..

I’m actually really.. really sad about losing her.  😦  We had our problems, but I never wanted to lose her, I loved her so much.

18-20

Their first greeting card without Aislin… 😦

Screenshot-822

Genevieve busied herself by fixing things and cleaning things around the house, basically rolling wishes for these things and pouring herself into the house.

Screenshot-823

;-;

It’s been a day so far.  One more day of this sadness.  I believe we’ll have a funeral for Aislin tomorrow morning.

18-21

I did some more pruning since the game started lagging pretty bad again.  It seems like I’ll have to keep pruning, which is rather annoying.

Screenshot-824

Probably thinking about that baby Aislin wanted, but never got.

Screenshot-825

Aislin hopped out of her grave after like, 24 hours of being dead.  Do not tempt me to make a ghost baby, woman, I miss you too much.  We need to get the graves off the house lot…

Screenshot-826

“I hope Genevieve’s doing good…  The kids are always going to be a mess, but, I hope she’s fine without me.”

Don’t make me cry, Aislin, come on, don’t.

Screenshot-827

“Um, hey, mom, my namesake, hey…  Can you sign this permission slip?”

Screenshot-828

“Oh wow, you’re really doing it!?”  “Um.  Yea.  Don’t tell your mom.”  “Yea, sure!”

Screenshot-829

 

“Okay, bye now, get your ectoplasmic ass out of here.”

Screenshot-830

“Ah, waffles!  I love it when wifey makes me some waffles!”

Screenshot-831

“Its nine in the morning, why are you still here!?”

I missed you at first, but now I am not amused.

Screenshot-832

“Thanks mom!”

*shift click deletes Aislin*  YOU’RE DEAD.  STAY THAT WAY!

18-22

For some reason her LTW isn’t registering even though it says she has it complete.  Great.  I was hoping to use those LTHP to buy a moodlet manager.  No such luck, I guess.

Screenshot-833

-5 for Charlotte.  Oh wait.

Screenshot-834

Another -5.

Now that I think about it, Charlotte’s the only one that’s failed this chapter.  Geez.

Screenshot-835

Another -5, shit, Charlotte, get it together.

So, since Aislin tried to bug out on us, we didn’t throw a funeral, and this Monday after school (meaning, this next day we’re playing through) is the quadruplet’s birthday into adult hood!  Meaning their official sim-cards will be posted, and they’ll be added to the downloads page, and probably all four will be moving out.

Screenshot-836

Since its obvious that Riley’s taking over.

-5 from Aislin II, for the record.

Screenshot-837

“And the paparazzi was never. seen. again.”

It’s nice to see Violet making friends.

Screenshot-838

“You’re going to be fine, Violet, you’re just going to be an adult, that’s all… with responsibilities, and bills, and a job, and oh god, oh god, oh god!”

Screenshot-839

“This is my lunch, I am taking it to school, shut your fucking face, I am not glitched!”

…  Pretty sure you are.

Screenshot-840

I went through and started cleaning up inventories, and realized that Gen’d had these guys in her inventory for the longest.  They’re now next to these dead people at the town graveyard.  I still haven’t gotten down to making a Greywind Graveyard, mostly because I’m lazy.

Screenshot-841

I also put the Quad’s beds into the family inventory and rearranged (but did not bother adding stuff to) the bedrooms.  Then it was time to get ready for the birthday party!  Thanks to cleaning out the inventories we had around §10k (wow, right?  I did not expect that!) so I decided to expand on the back yard a bit so I could add a place for cakes.

Screenshot-842

Gen set up at the back of the house, and later on I would learn that huge light right there is fucking useless.

Screenshot-843

 

Charlotte and Violet were the first to their cakes, so Charlotte went first.

Screenshot-844

I decided to roll a dice to see what LTW they would get sacked with.

AislinIIGreywind

Aislin gained Natural Cook as her fifth trait and that gave her 3/5 of the same traits of her namesake.  She also got the same LTW, to be a 5 Star Chef.

CharlotteGreywind

Charlotte got Star Quality and the Illustrious Author LTW.

LiamGreywind

Liam got Bot Fan as his fifth trait and the Ghostbuster LTW.  I couldn’t resist making his card of him in his bot-self.  You’re just going to have to deal with it.  I also accidentally got the wrong favorite color for him.  It’s actually orange.  Woooops, too bad I already exited out of photoshop.

Screenshot-850

Also, I had no idea we had a vampire in Dragon Valley!

Screenshot-849

Jennifer… being weird as usual.

Damn, the house doesn’t have a roof again.  Sorry >_>

Obviously I am still a novice simtographer.  (Actually, we all know that in Tab/cameraman mode, you have to be on like, the top floor to get the roof and make your way down, and I’m just too lazy, we all are, so don’t you think less of me and I won’t think less of you, deal?)

VioletGreywind

Violet got Excitable and Fashion Phenomenon LTW.  Great, now before you pass out, get the hell out of my house, please and thank you.

And I should point you over to our Downloads page where I have officially updated everyone over there, and you can download from two different sources, Box and Mediafire, but it’s the same file for each, it’s just your preference, that and if maybe one won’t load, there’s the other one on a totally different host, so!  I prefer Box, to be honest, there aren’t many ads, and even better, no pop up ads from my knowledge!

I also found out why Genevieve’s LTW didn’t register.  She had a dead plant.  Or four.

18-23

Now even if they do wet themselves or pass out, they’re not part of the household so it doesn’t count!  neenerneener!!

Screenshot-854

Though it looks like the only thing happening now is the sudden temperature drop form Fall is ruining the party.  Don’t worry, Aislin II!  I’ll send Gen over to thaw you out!

Screenshot-855

“*sigh*  Don’t worry, I’ll save you.”

Screenshot-856

 

HAH, THAT DOESN’T COUNT!  NICE TRY!

18-24

Violet turned into the newest Slayer, that vampire we saw earlier better watch his back.

18-25

And Aislin II took up the position that Aislin had before she married into the family.  Breaks my heart to see her so alike to her mother, tbh, so alike.  At least Aislin’s legacy lives on!

Screenshot-857

“Taking over this legacy was as easy as stealing from a kids bake sale.”

“Obviously.  And with you’re B average and my mastermind, we’ll take over the world next!  After I go to bed though.”

“Yea, wouldn’t want to jynx ourselves by having you pass out.”

Screenshot-858

And just like that, the house was practically empty.

See you next week for the very last chapter of Genevieve’s generation, where Riley will age into an adult and begin Gen2!!!

Screenshot-859

Get your pregnant ass out of here, Jennifer.

“Oh god, I think I just gave myself an abortion with the invisa-plate!”

This is sims, girl, I don’t even have the abortion mod installed.

Oh yea, -25 points this chapter.

1.7

1-7

Last time we had a very long chapter, but thanks for bearing with me and coming back for another installment of the Greywind ISBI!  A quick overview of last week’s update:  Bonehinda was super useful but Aislin was afraid of her so we had to get rid of her, at least she fixed the garbage compactor for us.  There were fails everywhere, also prom, where Aislin II had a date in the form of weird featured teen guy named Lynn.  They’re going steady now.  We ran into a few problems, technical wise with the game, but managed to get through them, and we decided instead of just counting fails, fails and school grade would be calculated into who got to be torch holder next.

Screenshot-746

“Oh shit, this is totally burned.” Well, at least you tried.

Screenshot-747

“Food’s food, Aislin II.”

“You’re going to get sick, Charlotte.”

“Shut the fuck up, Violet.”

Mood swings.

Screenshot-748

~~woohoo~~

Screenshot-749

“Oh sorry, don’t mind me, I just want to go to bed now, bye.”

*House is missing a roof from this angle woops*

Screenshot-750

“Okay, everyone, eat the damn food because I’m not cooking tonight.  I am going to bed, and you all can starve if you chose to.”

“But mooooooooooom

“THE QUEEN HAS SPOKEN!”

Screenshot-751

“So, birthday party tomorrow and pool party on Thursday!  It’s going to be a busy week!”

*crickets*

Screenshot-752

“Don’t worry, Alex.  I’ll make sure you don’t starve.”

Holy hairy llama balls!  That counter is disgusting!

Screenshot-753

“BAM.  That’s how its done.”

“That’s great.  I’m going to sleep in your bed, is that okay-”

“What?! NO!”

Screenshot-754

“Too late, skank.”

Well, at least she’s going to a bed instead of the floor.

17-1

😦  Oh god.  Do you guys even realize that she and Genevieve haven’t even been married a sim-year?!  Like, it’s coming up, but…  what if she doesn’t make it…

Anyway, it’s time for Mail with Genevieve!

17-2

“Well then.”

17-3

“She has a boyfriend.”

17-4

“Wow, Charlotte, guess guys like unstable chicks.”

17-5

“Oooooo, this is niiiice.” (It is.  I made it.)

17-6

“I really love gifts.”

17-7

“What is it with insane or unstable girls that brings the boys to the yard?”

17-8

“She is special.  She had to take a deep breath right after getting out of bed this morning.”

Screenshot-755

*Flashback* “Its okay, its just a party after school, but then Riley and Alexander are going to be teens and *gaspgaspgasp* I’ll be forgotten about!”

Naw, girl, I love you.

17-9

Nevermind, I change my mind, god damn it, Charlotte. -5.  Also got a notification for Alexander that he’s failing as well.  Fantastic.  Another -5.

Screenshot-756

This is the painting I made.  Pretty gorgeous, right?  Yea, I know.

Screenshot-757

-5 for Violet.

Screenshot-758

WOMP, PARTY TIME!

Screenshot-759

daaaa na na na, na na, na na na na, daaaaaaaa na na na…

Screenshot-760

na na, na na na na….

17-10

Huh.

Screenshot-761

Alexander Greywind, Couch Potato, Loner, Inappropriate, and now, Evil.  Favorite color Yellow, and actually, super sexy…

17-11

I didn’t see that coming.

Screenshot-762

Riley Greywind, who is a Snobby, Artistic, Genius, with Kleptomaniac habits.

Screenshot-763

And it’s not a party until someone pisses themselves! -5 for Alexander.

Hopefully Riley can keep up her grades and lack of fails for torch holder, otherwise it might end up going to Aislin II.

Screenshot-764

“erm, what was that you were saying….” Oh, Riiiiley!  -5.

Screenshot-765

You’re lucky I’m not counting glitch-wettings.

“HAHAHAHA RILEY, YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!”

“Shut the fuck up, Alex!!!”

17-12

Awesome!

Screenshot-766

Wow, -5, Vi, also, you’re fail score is equal to Charlotte’s, never thought that would happen.

17-13

. . . I’ll just take one of the other wishes.

Screenshot-767

-5 for Aislin II.

17-14

OR WHAT?!

Pops up like its all bad, well WHY didn’t Zoe come to OUR party, HMMM!?

Screenshot-768

-5 for Riley again.  She’s catching up to Aislin II’s fail count, and Aislin has the advantage of turning into an adult sooner, so hopefully, if Riley wants to be torchholder, she’ll try to be better.

Screenshot-769

“ROCKETS… YESSSSSSSSS!!!!”

Screenshot-770

And here we see almost everyone sleeping!  Aislin’s in the back in her sleeping bag, all the girls are in (the wrong) bed, and Liam managed to find his bed. of course, Alexander is just fine at the moment and is happy to go fuck around on the computer upstairs.

Screenshot-771

“Don’t think you can keep me from school, Alex!”

“I WANT TO BE TORCH HOLDER!”

“YOU FAIL TOO MUCH!”

Screenshot-772

traffic jam.

Screenshot-773

“Fuck school, I’ll have cake!”

17-15

I don’t know what he thought would happen.

Screenshot-774

Oh hey, lil guy, aren’t you a cutie!

17-16

Another prom.  Whoopie.

17-17

-5.

This means our prospect torch holders are Riley, Aislin II, and Violet.

Screenshot-777

“VIOLET, YOU GET THOSE GRADES UP NOW!  OR ELSE!  AND YOU KNOW WHAT?!  NO COMPUTER FOR YOU TILL YOU START MAKING CS AGAIN!!!”

Guys, please be careful, your mom’s old, her heart can’t take this!

Screenshot-778

“AND YOU!  WITH YOUR BAD GRADES AND UNRENDERING US!?  TIME. OUT.  NOW!”

Screenshot-781

I sent Gen to do a few things around town, present a check to the school, then to raide the community garden for the bountiful harvests that we could sell with her magical dragon, mess around on her phone, harvest again, yea, you see where this went.

I can only assume that Gen will roll the wish to throw a pool party, so I’m gathering the funds for a pool.

Screenshot-782

Liam’s out of the running for torchholder, but that’s still a -5.

Screenshot-783

 

Just what Aislin does.  I am really not looking forward to when she passes.

Screenshot-784

I took a moment to adjust Rufus’ coats to be adorable-er.

Screenshot-785

“I know you’re out of the running for torchholder, Alex, but I’m not, so if you could shut up so I can do my calculus, that’d be great.”

Screenshot-786

“Do your homework, your mother can’t take another failure, her heart’s too old-”

“Wait, are you talking about yourself or?”

“….  You’re insane, not stupid.”

17-20

“So fucking done with this bullshit, you all are going to study club, swear on my fucking life I am done with this bullshit.”

Somewhere along the line of having six teenagers, Genevieve developed a potty mouth.

And now its time for more mail time with Genevieve!

17-21

“He better not be thinking about getting her pregnant!”

17-22

“….  Does she.. um, you know?  Have cancer?”

17-23

“She has a boyfriend, keep trying, though.”

17-24

“Oh, Riley’s first love letter!!”

Screenshot-787

“Look, Violet, get your grades up, okay, but you’re off the hook.”

Screenshot-788

“Oh god, Liam, so sorry, um..- WAIT….  DID YOU JUST CLOG UP THE TOILET!?! GOD. DAMN. IT.”

“*poker face*”

“whatever, you’re off the hook.  Now leave so I can fix this.”

Screenshot-790

“YOUR GRADES, CHARLOTTE!?  WHAT DO YOU EVEN DO ALL DAY?”

Obviously, I sit on my ass and do nothing.”

“NO COMPUTER PRIVILEGES!!”

“FINE.”

Screenshot-791

“SKIPPING SCHOOL, ALEXANDER?!  LOOK, I HAVE FUCKING HAD IT WITH YOU KIDS JUST WALKING ALL OVER ME AND YOUR MOM, WE WORK SO HARD TO GIVE YOU A GOOD LIFE AND THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, ALEX, UNACCEPTABLE!!!”

“Geez, mom, I’m sorry-”

“TOO LATE.  TIME OUT.  you’re breakin my heart.”

Genevieve and Aislin are really cracking down on the kids….

Screenshot-792

“OH GOD. OH GOD.  I BROKE THE SHOWER.  MOM’S GUNNA KILL MEEEE!!!!”

17-25

Oh crap.  I sent her to the hospital immediately, so we’re okay.

Screenshot-795

“LOOK, I DON’T CARE IF YOU HAVE A WEAK HEART OR WHATEVER, YOU DON’T GET TO MAKE FUN OF ME!!!”

Screenshot-796

“What do you mean am I in an arranged marriage?!”

Oops plumbob.  But look at those girls all do their homework!!

Screenshot-797

“Oh, hey, Lynn…”

17-26

“Guess so.  You coming to my pool party today?  OH WELL FINE.”

Screenshot-798

The new pool.

Screenshot-799

 

“I’m here for the yearly pool party!”

Oh.  Nice of you to make it, Jennifer…

Screenshot-800

Gen pulled the party totally outside.  Ofc.

Screenshot-801

This is Destiny, she kind of has a thing for Liam if all her letters are any indication, and she didn’t have any hair, but she has very pretty eyes.

Screenshot-802

Alexander did his homework, I looked around and the teens are finally putting those tablets I got them to good use.

Screenshot-803

“Yea, I live here.  I’m probably going to move though, so do you have a house?  Perhaps you have another child whom I could marry?  I notice my sister has cozied on up to your son.”

I just realized that Jennifer, who stalked Genevieve’s parties, had a son, Lynn, which, yes, is the boyfriend of Aislin II.

Screenshot-804

 

“Thanks for doing your homework, Alex.  You’re off the hook, kid, go enjoy yourself, this is a party after all.”

Screenshot-805

The party was epic!  But thats -5 from Aislin II.

Also, Charlotte had a trait swap because I missed it, instead of Slob she’s gaining Absent Minded.  I am definitly OK with this, that and I don’t have the time right now to take her over to the hospital.

Anyway our fails this chapter amount to -50.  Not too bad!
