  • 1. Welcome Back to Familiar Faces!Chapter Eight: Dad or DNA Donor?

2. So when we left, Cary Familiar; incoming heir of the Familiar Family had just turned teen. He's a Family sim with a weird want to top the Music career track and be a Rock God.To refresh memories regarding my play rules, before creating the family I used SimPE to import all the Maxis created playable from the various neighborhoods and sub hoods and turned them into townies. Those former playables are the breeding stock for the Familiar family. I also play by the rule that the first born legacy legitimate child will be the heir. I'm interested in the possible mix of genetics that will spring up but I'm not that worried about getting the prettiest or the ugliest. This is a good thing for Cary, he's not ugly he's just not that pretty. 3. In deep mourning for his wife Dina, who passed away this evening, Abe is consoling himself with lobster. He's not hungry, he's just lonely. If he'd just turn around he'd see that his daughter Betty already served a meal."You mean of course that Betty burned a meal, Betty's good at burning meals." 4. This is true. Betty burns about half of the meals she cooks, plenty of skills she's just not interested in cooking. Must be why she's hasn't rolled a lifetime want to be a Celebrity Chef. Betty's the reigning heiress of the household, she's a romance sim and has completed one lifetime want to woohoo 20 different sims. She's almost completed her second which is to be a Hall of Famer.Betty isn't married and most likely never will be, she changes men faster than most women change clothing. Cary is the result of a liaison with Chaz Whippler university bin sim from Academie Le Tour. Betty is currently pregnant again, this time by Kiernan Tricou. 5. Cary's pretty serious about the Rock God thing, most days after school he's to be found in the basement practicing his rifts and cords and most importantly his musical grimace. 6. "I thought you said I'd be dead before this happened!"I said maybe, if you were lucky. 7. Welcome to the world Clint Familiar!Named for the familiar face of Clint Eastwood, this little tykes got dark brown eyes, black hair and the lightest skin tone 8. "Cary stop bathing Snicks and hold your brother"The classic pass off of the baby can only mean one thing. 9. Welcome to the World Cher Familiar!Named for Cheryl Sarkisian LaPiere, better known as Cher, this one has the same dark brown eyes and black hair as her twin but she has the second skin tone 10. By the time Cher was born Abe had lost interest and gone to bed. He'd need plenty of rest in order to conquer the mountains of diapers he'll be changing shortly. 11. Good family sim that he is Cary immediately formed a caring and protective relationship with his new siblings. With Abe just days from joining his wife in the backyard Cary would make a huge impact of their lives from day one. 12. Abe had resigned himself to diaper duty and he wasn't to be disappointed. If only he could sell dirty diapers he'd be a millionaire."Good idea! I'll go check the internet see if there's any financial potential in these things."Somehow I doubt there will be, but you never know, some folks will buy anything off Ebay. 13. Second lifetime want complete! What's next Betty?"Professional Party Guest!"Sounds good you shouldn't have any problems with . . . dang it don't turn around Betty you probably don't wanna watch. 14. Noooooo not Snickers!Word to the wise folks, never create an in game pet after one you know in real life. *sniff* Snicks was one of my favorite dogs in game just like his namesake is one of my favorite real life dogs. 15. Without the peacekeeping presence of Snickers in the house Sassy and her devil spawn Blacky start the fur flying. Sad thing is they actually like each other, they just fight cause it's fun or something. Aggressive dogs see challenges the same way mean kids see noogies, they raise social and give positive relationship points to the one that does the challenges, while they lower relationship points for the receiver. 16. Yeah way to thank your mother for giving you life. Okay everyone to their corners, no more bloodshed in the kitchen, the maid needs to get back to work. 17. "Of course I'm hot Hermia, I'm a Rock God in training. Stick with me babe and I'll take you all the way to the top." 18. "Looking is fine just no touching, don't touch me! You're invading my personal space, I have issues!"Back slowly away Cary, there's a good reason why the Capps are considered kinda mental. 19. "Haha! Do you realize what you just did? You just cost yourself the chance of being the legitimate high school sweetheart of a legacy sim. Jenn wants a Verona Villian moved in, we're both family sims and we have great chemistry potential! You could a been sent to uni and grown up and then married to me and living the high life. But nooo you had to go nut case didn't you? Have fun living on the streets you crazy wench!" 20. Eeep! This could get messy, Cary wished for love in order to get a high school sweetheart and out popped cashier Aurora. They have three bolts.Cary, remember the family, it's the important thing. You can play with her but you can't be her Prince Phillip. 21. Hey you townie chick with the hat why are you messing up my picture of the synchronized toddler toss?"I'm just passing thru on my way to the hot tub" 22. "You said I could bring a friend!"Yeah but I expected you to at least notice that your children were having a birthday. Not just walk in and head to the hot tub with said friend. 23. Clint FamiliarAquarius 2/5/4/6/8Messy and nice, he's a little sweetheart. 24. Cher FamiliarAries 6/8/5/6/6Very middle of the road personality with the exception of her outgoing she doesn't have any extremes. 25. "Baba Dada!""Do I look like a nanny kid? I don't have time to get bottles, I've got a hot one waiting for me in the hot tub"Well this father bonding experience is going well isn't it? 26. Kiernon Tricou puts new meaning into sleezy romance sim. It was bad enough when Chaz spent Cary's birthday in the hot tub, but at least he was with Cary's mother not some nameless floozy. 27. "Dada play?""Play? Play what kid? I don't think you can hold the pool cue and I ain't interested in no peek a boo crap!" 28. *I am so glad my mother didn't marry this slime wad*So am I Cary. Now go call your father and thank him for at least giving a dang.Cary and Chaz are best friends. Chaz calls him all the time to talk. 29. It's okay Cher you don't need a Daddy you've got Grampa Abe. He's wonderful with kids and couldn't love you more. 30. I'm afraid though that they won't have Abe for much longer. He's just waiting for the chance to clock out. He's done everything I asked of him and now he's ready to go. The garden's in great shape and Betty got her gold so she can take over there. The twins are potty trained and Cary's an overachiever. 31. Abe even finally got that gold toy making badge so that the dogs can wash themselves. Betty's got an inventory full of crafted odds and ends. One of these days we'll open a business and the Familiar's can have a garage sale. 32. Speaking of Betty she's starting to realize that she's not getting much face time at the moment so she dramatically sets the kitchen on fire yet again in order to play hero and save Cher. Betty has a history of setting fires for her own purposes."I do not!"Umm lets see, there was the fire you started so that Barbie wouldn't get her first kiss, the fire you started at your graduation party, the fire when you found out you were pregnant a second time and this fire. I'd say there's a trend in there someplace. 33. Devil dog though he is Blacky can't resist the lure of a toddler cuddle. 34. Grim came calling and found Abe just where you'd expect him to be, in the nursery with the twins. He'd just finished teaching Cher to talk and was more than ready to go see Dina again. 35. Rest in Peace Abe and Dina FamiliarGeneration two is always the hardest generation to let go of for me. 36. "Why did Dad have to die now? Couldn't he have gotten the twins training finished up first?"You can't lie to me Betty, you've had the want to teach them to walk locked since they turned toddler. We've been saving it for now so that you'd all get a good memory in at a bad time. 37. And Cary gets his memory wipe by asking Aurora to go steady with him. As much chemistry as the two of them have Cary has very few wants for Aurora. It might be because wishing for love automatically puts the relationship score so high that there's no need to raise it, or it might just be that Cary's smart enough to know that the relationship won't last long. 38. "Generations of dogs at this house have lined up and waited patiently to be patted by me. I always like this house cause the dogs were nice that way. Now they line up to fight over who gets to chase me. I'm asking my supervisor for a new route!"I keep trying to breed in more nice genes but if anything they just keep getting meaner. Bad dog Sassy! Bad Dog! 39. Cue music from Jaws"I'm back!"The Familiar's haven't needed a Nanny on a regular basis since Betty was a toddler. It'll only be for one day. The twins turn to kids tonight and after that Cary can handle them. 40. We've got fears of parties in the panels so the kid spinning is a small event just the immediate family. 41. Whap!"You didn't even come in the house to see them age!"Well we can blame him for lots of things but we can't really blame him for that, Betty didn't get home from work in time to call him over before the tossing had to be done if they wanted cakes. But that doesn't mean we aren't watching him carefully. And this time when he asked to bring a "friend" we said no. 42. "Daddy! you made it!""Don't hug me you brat!. You probably have all kinds of kid type
