When I left you hanging over the edge of a cliff, Isaac Abraham was hanging between life and death. I had run to city hall to find out who had a death flower they’d be willing to give him, but when I tried to select him as the recipient of the flower it appeared that he no longer existed. While I was writing that last post it occurred to me to look for him among the dead — the default filtering would have only looked for his name among the living. This time, rather than using Dennis as the donor, I chose Isaac’s nephew Zach. Sure, Dennis just married into the family but Zach is family. It just made more sense.
So there we were (we being Chantilly, Jacob, and I) watching the stars (through the ceiling of The Grind), minding our own business, when suddenly I heard some chit chat going on somewhere. I went to look and found Isaac and Elvira in the upstairs “guest” room. El was buck nekkid, Isaac was…… unfortunately not. After checking each of their KamaSimtra stats to satisfy myself that Isaac had only cheated with the cute teen that night, I quickly left. Resisting the temptation to direct any interaction between them. I didn’t want to risk having Elvira get angry at my precious Isaac. So…… back to Chantilly and Jacob and trying to see if Jacob wants a girlfriend with a bit of an unusual career.
Tragedy has again struck the town of SV2E. Ethan Hayes is no longer counted among the living, leaving just his older sisters Grace and Brianna to carry on the family — and a son born just a few sim-days ago. My daughter saw Elvira down at the diner and wanted to go there… just in case she killed someone. To liven things up a bit I had Joey convince brother Isaac to flirt with El — even though Isaac’s wife was just around the corner, along with her brother and sister. Isaac does what his big brother tells him and suddenly everyone on the lot is perturbed. Imagine my shock. So then I tell Joey to smooth things over a bit — to convince Grace to kiss her husband. Grace agrees, but Isaac acts all creeped out by it. *smh* I take control of Isaac and make him make up to his wife. An apology that slipped the queue, a heat of the moment kiss….. badaboom badabang they’re happy again. Then Ethan comes busting through and approaches El. They have some sort of disagreement. We (my daughter and I) both think this could be the end. But wait! There’s more! Continue reading
For some reason I haven’t felt much like playing the game today, so I guess I”ll take the opportunity to get all y’all caught up on some of the happenings around SV2E. Starting in the middle of January and going on till the latest patch was released, I was helping test Phase 15 of twallan’s StoryProgression. He made some major changes in how things are organized, added new functionality, and opened up new realms of micromanagement. It’s awesome!
I finally got all the stories and images moved to this site. And gave all y’all a break from the rapid succession of posts (ok, I was the one getting the break). Once again I can delve into current events in Sunset Valley. When last we left the good citizens of the valley, Vlad had been promoted to level 8 in his law enforcement career; Aisha was pregnant with Cory’s baby, but Cory had died by pie; several fires had broken out at the Kassanova house; and no sim-icides had been committed in a very long time.
Vlad has since made it level 9: Triple Agent, and is just one or two days from achieving his lifetime wish of becoming an International Super Spy. Yea Vlad! Aisha gave birth to a boy, who has been named. What his name is, I can’t tell you right now (I forgot). When I gave up control of the Kassanova household in favor of returning to Vlad and helping him complete his goal, SP took over and caused Ava to become engaged to Erica Sullivan. I decided to go along with it and moved Ava into Erica’s house — after all, she only moved into the Kassanova house because she was with Heather. The fact that she stayed after Heather’s death was very generous of Annie and Cory, but a new relationship outside the house meant it was as good a time as any for her to stop mooching off the Kassanovas. Shortly after the move Ava and Erica got married. It was just announced last night that Aisha has proposed to Erica’s sister, Janna. Lovely. Glad I made her look at least a little less pudding-like when I brought her back into the game. Continue reading
