Transcript of Familiar Faces Chapter Twelve

  • 1. Welcome back to Familiar FacesChapter Twelve: Weddings, Babies and Servos

2. When last we left the Familiar family heir Cary was returning home from his four year tour of university. At university when he wasn't romancing his first cousin once removed Amelia Bross he was getting to know his potential wife Cassandra Goth. Once he got home he invited Cass over and proposed cause he truly loves her and it was the proper thing for a legacy heir to do."And cause you threatened me with multiple energizer failures if I didn't"Well true, but it's not my fault you didn't roll the typical family sim want to get engaged as soon as you fell in love with her. 3. Once the proposing was taken care of, Cass moved in and got her make over and the two of them spent several hours with their heads stuck in renu-orbs. I eventually was able to figure out that seasons apparently changed turn ons and turn offs so that custom hair only counts if it's genetic. Once they were set to appreciate each others natural hair colors they became a sickeningly sweet three bolt couple that would rather pillow fight with each other than take care of their own basic needs like eating and sleeping.And we were ready to begin a round of wedding parties, or so we thought. 4. Before we could start throwing parties we had to take care of some anger issues around the hood. Everyone it seemed was ticked off at someone and it all went back to those wild Greek house parties university. 5. Primarily it was the fault of Amelia and Bo Bross. No matter how happy they look at the moment, they spent much of the generation four's university years having slap fests with each other. If it wasn't Amelia snogging with Cary it was Bo getting kissed out of the blue by some random dormie. 6. It didn't matter that Amelia had been caught cheating on Bo several times in the past, it was Bo cheating on Amelia that set the neighborhood on it's ears. Sims are all a bit more likely to look the other way when someone in their family is indiscreet. But when it was Bo cheating, the family took the attitude of mess with one, mess with all. 7. And for a while there the Bross house never saw a newspaper and had the exterminator on speed dial. Even those members of the family that should known better were apt to be caught out in the sun when they should have been at home safely in their coffins and not burning to death. 8. In the hopes of correcting the furious states of the family I had the bright idea to put Betty to work. Betty was bored anyway, she'd been fired from her job as a Professional Party Guest just one scant sim day after correcting her age to display her as an elder and therefore unable to get her adult job back. 9. So the Familiar family finally purchased the Orchard and Fruit Stand that had been built for them back when Abe was an adult. Betty had been carrying around a bunch of extra fruits and veggies ever since her father passed away. We thought that with three generations worth of produce they'd have a big enough stock to at least get started. 10. Things went fairly smoothly at first. Betty had never been a wiz at math but she did eventually figure out the cash register. Her real strength though was in sales. Putting her fully maxed charisma to use she could sell just about anything to anyone. 11. There were a few problems though, I didn't realize that Brandi Broke had carried a grudge towards Cassandra all the way from Pleasantview."But I'm the Pleasantview family sim that everyone wants to make a good match for, Cassandra already has Don and Darren she doesn't need Cary as well."Sorry Brandi, but well there's no nice way to put this, I hate you. You're the worst excuse for a family sim there is. Yeah yeah your husband died, leaving you broke with 2.5 kids to raise, wah wah! What do you do to fix your life? You spend your time lazing around in your expensively decorated bedroom waiting for your son to come home from his afternoon job, so you can yell at him about his grades. And when he attempts to get you to help him with his homework you refuse to do so and yell at him some more. So go ahead and cry me a river, you WON'T be marrying into this legacy anytime soon. 12. "Yeah what she said!"I fell a little bit in love with Cass when she autonomously picked a fight with Brandi and kicked her butt all over Familiar Fruits and Veggies. 13. Between the strawberry juice, lots of apologizing and some cash being passed around pretty soon everything was back to normal in Familiarity. 14. And we could finally get started on the round of wedding parties we'd been waiting for. The Familiar family loves nothing more than a huge party where they can all get together for fun and frolics. 15. Eleven sets of vows were exchanged. (Clint and Lucy Familiar) 16. Guest's were Bleh'd (Bade and Rebecca Dreamer) 17. Grooms were scared by the ghosts of their bride's grandmother. (Becca and Blair London) 18. Brides were goosed by their grooms (Cher and Johnny Smith) 19. Servo's were snuggled (Ben and Betsy Familiar) 20. Honeymoon limo's were jumped in to (Cary and Cassandra Familiar) 21. And there were lots, and lots, and lots of babies born nine month's later.(Baird Familiar with his eldest, son Cory, who proves that sim genetics work. Cory has red hair that can only come from our founder's wife Chloe Singles-Familiar) 22. Psst Betty"Yeah Jenn?"While Cary and Cass are on their honeymoon, I want you to sneak into the living room and activate the servo that Ben gave them as a wedding gift."You want me to activate it? But it's their gift, I don't think I should take possession of it like that. Wouldn't that be kinda rude?"Of course not! You have more skills and badges than either Cary or Cass have and besides, I really really don't want a family aspiration servo that will spend the next five generations whining about wanting to get married and have babies. 23. "Now that's what I call a boy toy!"Welcome to the family Adonis Familiar!Like his creator Adonis is a Sagittarius Romance Sim, his lifetime want is to be a Celebrity Chef. Easy as pie since he's already maxed in cooking and creativity, he just needs a logic point or two. Don't get the wrong impression from this picture, Adonis and Betty have zero attraction for each other, they were just setting his gender preferences. 24. Cass and Cary on the other hand now have mega bucks of attraction for each other, and as soon as they got home from the honeymoon they set off to create the next generation of Familiar's. 25. As every good servo does Adonis spends much of his time attempting to stuff everyone's face with copious amounts of food. I don't want to install the no servo do chores hack, cause I like it when they take care of kids, and clean the house all on their own.I tremendously dislike it when they up the grocery bill by two hundred percent while continually serving food that will go uneaten due to the fact that I'd rather let the family sleep than wake them up to eat unless they are about to starve to death. Unlike many of the other servos I've had Adonis actually cooks full meals and not just desserts. 26. Cary got his gold badge in gardening so that he can take over the plants in the house garden. I really find the gardening badges to be much easier than any of the OFB crafting badges. Almost every one of my sims is a gold badged gardener while I think I only have two gold badged robotics and one or two gold toy badges in the hood. I still don't have a gold flower arranger in this hood, I'm trying to stay away from snapdragons at the moment they make life a bit too easy for me at times. 27. *The crowd goes wild! Cary! Cary! Cary!*"Thank you Sim City I love you!"Cary of course also took a job in the music track and went to work twice before becoming a rock god and perma plat. I have a hard time with Cary cause I do like him an awful lot, he's just really not that interesting. He's a very typical family sim, he rolls up romantic wants for his wife and wants to play with the dogs or talk to his friends. When he's on free will he stalks Cass, or plays in the tub. 28. Cass is generally the same as Cary, she rolls up wants for her husband and for the dogs. Occasionally she wants to be friends with people she meets, but except for that one time when she beat up on Brandi she's generally pretty mellow. Not playful enough to be a tub pirate she spends her free will time playing pool.When she joined the family she was low level in the Law Enforcement Career Track, but I had her switch to Education since the family still doesn't have a bookcase. Cass's lifetime want is to graduate three children from University which shouldn't be a problem. 29. In fact, child number one made itself known almost immediately. Cass started spending her days eating all the food Adonis put in front of her. At least one person in the household appreciates Adonis's chef skills. 30. And Betty, well Betty goofs off a lot. She doesn't have a job, and there aren't any grandchildren to take care of yet. The family has a servo, plus a maid and a gardener so there's not a lot of work to be done.I could force her to finish up the few skills she hasn't yet maxed or work on a crafting badge but, well I adore Betty so I just let her do what she wants to do. She has about forty best friends so I do make her work the phones almost every day to keep track of them. 31. Just every other day she and Adonis head to the store and she works at helping the neighborhood deal with their relationship issues."Johnny, Johnny, Johnny I know that Cher had some commitment issues when she was in college but have I got a deal for you! If you get your wife a cucumber she'll never look at another man again." 32. Wow! I just realized that it's been three and a half chapters with no gratuitously cute puppy pictures. 33. Oh yeah that's because most of
