Don't Mind Me, I'm Just Ruining Your Life

Or Sims-Misery. Either would work.

Last post we had Anna Maria and her dating/marriage/divorce woes with Harry. She had their kid (a girl, Henrietta), and of course got slandered all over town for not only getting a divorce, but also for having a child out of wedlock. It's gone from being the 1950's in this game to being the 1920's, yo. A divorcee? The SCANDAL.

While she was busy sewing scarlet letters on all her clothing, Leonardo also aged up, so I invited over his high school crush (Hannah), let her have her birthday in my living room, and got them married. She didn't have to break up with anyone, there was no cheating accusations, it was smooth and easy. I had Leo the Love Kitten get her knocked up right away and then moved them out before the kid was born (it turned out to be another girl, and they named her Cassandra). I had to put a new house in my game world for them, though, because this whole damn town is high rise apartments with one bedroom, and you can't have a couple and a kid in a one bedroom place. Bleh. Since then I think they went and had another kid, or are in process of doing so, since I can't remember what the new kid is named. Makes me think it isn't named as yet.

So, two people out, one baby in, and it's back to looking for love in all the wrong places for my girls. Since I got a couple mods for the game, one of them lets you go to the spa and talk to the local matchmaker to try to find someone that you might be hep to get your bone on with. It also lets you know how attractive your sim finds the other sim. (Lisette and Gerardo are both 10s to each other; Anna Maria and Harry were also 10s) So I had Anna go, and nope, all these people on this list are, in her opinion, horrible monsters. Everyone had a 000 ranking. (it could be I just don't understand the mod, but from what I gather, that's a whole lot of 'not interested') I sent her out with one dude, and she gave him a ranking of one, so, yeah. Apparently no one is as attractive as her former blue haired beau.

I also sent Arya over there (after yet another guy that she was chatting up started dating someone else, who, oddly enough, was named Aria) and got a whole mess of 0's again, so I grumbled and went back to looking for people for her the old way. Which generally means that I didn't bother and had her work on her career instead.

Henrietta became a toddler (and got her mom's black hair with hot pink tips), and Anna started getting wishes to get married, so I sent her to the match maker again and just picked someone because he had a weird ass name. Like Cyranque or something. She gave him a 1 for attractiveness, but fuck it. He had a nice face and his traits weren't awful. Good enough. I got them married and sent them off towards home (where it turned out that Arya thought he was super 10s, OF COURSE) and had them make a brand new baby. This time, since there was no other lady (or dude) from before, there was no horrible strife and eventual pre-baby divorce, so he managed to stay around all the way up to, and beyond, their kid (girl, Cybil) was born. Then I moved them out as well and my house got super barren because I suddenly had half as many people in it.

Meanwhile, Arya was working on some opportunities, one of which involved going to a friend and letting them know that she managed to do the task that was assigned to her. Apparently this dude just could NOT stay in one place, so she chased him from the butterfly enclosure to the sport's bar three goddamn times before I just decided to have her stay at the butterfly place and wait to see if he would come back. While she was there, she spotted another dude (Vladamir) at the place that she thought was the hot hotness, so I was like 'yes, fine, good, him' and had her go start chatting him up. Asked if he was single, and no, no of COURSE he isn't. But he wasn't married, so, again, whatever, good enough.

As it turned out, he was out with his lady friend, so I had Arya and him group up and go to a different park so they could flirt and I could make him dump the lady he was currently dating. Which, when I had her 'ask to break up with Odine' I was like, hey, wait a second. Why does the name Odine sound familiar?

Ends up that it sounded familiar because Odine is who Harry was dating when Anna asked him to break up with his girlfriend and date her instead. So two women in this one family have stolen away Odine's gents. That's kinda tragic. She just can't win out against these Dare women and their wily ways.

Even worse, after I got Anna moved out and Vlad moved in, I found out that Vlad and Odine had toddler twins. >_> So not only did Arya steal her man, but also stole her man pretty much two days after they'd had kids. Harsh, man. Harsh. But, hey, nothing to be done about that now. So I had Arya and Vlad hump like bunnies (which is all they seem to want to do, honestly. One of them ALWAYS seems to have to 'bone' wish going on) and Arya got pregnant off in the hot tub.

And then, later that same day, Lisette got pregnant in that same hot tub. Which is kinda gross.

Three days later Arya and Vlad had little Veronica (ALL GIRLS IN MY HOUSE), and Lisette and Gerardo had wee Giselle and Genevieve, because of course they'd have twins. So now I have a house full of little pink burrito babies and ruined lives.

ROFL! Poor Odine! You know she's being all Ophelia now. Better keep her away from the river. lol

What's with the cheaters in the Sims? So many times, some guy will be chatting up one of my girls, she asks if he's single, and well, erm, um, no. Or a girl gets married and ex-beaus are still calling up and asking her on dates. 1920s patriarchal, misogynistic game!

I was just looking at that mod the other night, thinking it might be pretty handy. It looked complicated, though, and I'm not about complicated. Did you grab the woohoo mod, too? Others? Story Progression seems like it might be good, too, but yet again, complicated.

I got story progression, woohooer, Kamasimtra, scoring, and antimagicscroll. Finally, no having to rebuy books every other day! \o/

I've had the same issue with people calling my Sims for dates and either having them turn out to be married, or having my person already be married, so it was going to be a no go. If the game wasn't so thick and fast with the jealousy, it wouldn't be so bad, but if you even look at someone too long people start getting all up in arms. If only everyone was just like 'eh, whatevs, free love for all!' it'd be totally fine.

Bwahahaha! What a soap opera! Your Sims are shameless when it comes to stealing the mens. And that hot tub is seriously gonna need a cleaning D:

I swear, it just seems like every dude in town (that's not a dud) is taken before I can get to them. There's got to be a couple of shut ins somewhere that I can force to love me. I guess that's what I get for having my girls grow up in a different town, though. Leo was easy to pair off because he had a HS romance, but neither of the girls did.

I think that, at this point, that hot tub just needs burned. I'm about 80% sure that Arya herself was conceived in there, too.

Your Sims posts give me liiiiiiiiiiiife! So much drama, so much entertainment. Your posts also make me really want to play again, but there are so many expansions that I don't even know where to start beyond buying the main game...

Also, I was half-expecting Vlad to be a vampire because stereotype. Alas.

You should play again. :) I suggest Late Night, Pets, and Supernatural.

And Vlad? Totally a vampire. v-v

I'm kind of glad I never got into Sims because this is some kind of crazy crack.
