Round 2: The Jenkinses

Title: Round 2: The Jenkinses



In round 1, Moira married Craig Benson, a Family Sim with an LTW to marry off six kids. Moira having the golden heart that she does, decided to help this happen for her stud husband. She was lucky to latch onto such a young good looking man! Moira and Craig adopted Brandi and Janie, then Craig got abducted. He had a boy named Jonah.

Here he is growing up to child, and there is Janie too. These two are very close in age, as Craig adopted Janie the same day he got abducted. Yes, there is James. He has been especially helpful in helping take care of all these new aunts and uncles Craig was bringing into the house. Good job, James! However, James didn't have much of a personal life. When he wasn't taking care of kids, he was painting or charisma skilling. He managed to get those two scholarships before going off to Uni.

Speaking of James, having only one bathroom in the house is rough. When you gotta go, you gotta go...I found this cool 'pee tree' at TSR...James was the first one to use it.

Moira has taken her job seriously when it comes to raising the kids. She has no trouble discussing the Facts of Life with Janie. Ohh...looks like Janie has pictures to go along with Moira's narrative....heh.

Brandi had a birthday to teen, and she grew up to be a beauty.

Brandi rolled Family Aspiration, have 6 grandchildren. *sigh* There go my dreams of keeping Fellowship at manageable levels. I can't refuse the Family Sims. She will make up for James not having any children...he won't have any unless he gets abudcted. And well, that is a very real chance...the 'scope at the Jenkins house is sizzling! Early Monday morning, right before I finished the round...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yep, Craig gets abducted again. Wasn't even trying! I put him out there because he was fully maxed on needs and had more than enough skills to promote in his job in the military. Heh. So now he is pregnant again with an Alien baby. He will get cheesecake this time, maxing him on the 6 kids he needs to marry off. Brandi has enough cooking points to make it. Craig's family seems to think getting abducted is a great thing!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

As it goes...just like Round 1, Craig was abducted right around the time he had also adopted a baby. This is a new daughter Jordi that was delivered Sunday morning.

James left for Uni...and that is where we leave the Jenkinses.

POINTS this round: Two new Sims, Jordi and Jonah = 2 points.

Round 2: The Bustos

Title: Round 2: The Bustos



If you will remember, in Round 1, Howie married Contessa Brittany the Vampire. In effect, what it did was give him immortality, as Brittany immediately bit him. At the time I didn't think much about it, then realized it would keep him alive until he fulfilled his LTW of 5 Top Level Businesses. Great. However, due to his unusual genes, I couldn't help but let him procreate. So his beautiful Countess had to take Vamprocillin from the Matchmaker to become human....raising children and running businesses would take someone that could be around during the day, of course.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Contessa Brittany must have been hard up if you ask me to marry Howie. He must have it somewhere for her to marry him, give him all her money to start a business with, and to have his kid. Hmmm. I'll leave you thinking about that.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Speaking of business. Howie's business at the Corner Store (or what ever it is called, I don't remember) is doing so well, he decided to hire an employee. Luckily he found Andrea Hogan, who had enough badge points to be made a manager. Yay. Now Howie can call in and check his business when he isn't there. It is a level 6 by this time. Andrea does a good job.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yes, Andrea is good, but is also very expensive to have working at $53 an hour. Howie opened up a home business to cover the costs of Andrea's wages. Here is Rufus playing poker with a guest. The home business is only a level 2 at this time. Speaking of Rufus....

In Round 1 Shasta Norwood met him one day walking past their house. When I opened the Busto house, Rufus had constant wants to flirt with her as a teen..

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

So there you go. Rufus and Shasta Norwood, first kiss. These two will probably marry

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Countess Brittany gave birth to a daughter, Bria. Now....it looks like to me that Countess is pretty upset with her daughter's physical make up. What did she expect? Just keep on thinkin' about that hot stud of a man you got there, Brittany... Howie, Howie, HOWIE! In fact, Howie got Couness Brittany pregnant again right before the end of the Sim week. Another Busto spawned in Fellowship....

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Hedwig got a makeover and actually looks pretty good. Err...for the genes she has to work with...poor dear...Hedwig made it to her teen TOC as a Mascot, but then lost the scholarship for college when she lost the job to a bad chance card. Of course she had shared First Kiss with Charles Profitt so she is good for her life mate. Hedwig left for University. Rufus is a Knoweldge Sim and will spend a few more days skilling before he leaves for Uni next round. Countess Brittany has worked up to Convenience Store Clerk in her Slacker Career.

And that is where we leave the Bustos.

POINTS this round = 1 new Sim - Bria = 1 point.

Round 2: The Corcorans


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Title: Round 2: The Corcorans



There is just something deliciously sinful about this family. Erm... could it be a little ol' thang called adultery? Oh that happens so often in The Sims. But Corky Corcoran is being so blantant. And what makes it even more interesting, is that Corky is a Family Sim. They normally don't go on adulterous tangents.

Last visit, Corky moved into a nice Victorian with a home business layout in it. She didn't start a business right away, but opted to get a job and carry on with Bob Profitt, the Romance Sim. Bob gave her a wonderful daughter, Chardé. Here is her picture.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yep, last round she had just been born. So we have forwarded a few Sim days. She is a cutie! You will notice Holden sitting behind her at the table in his jammies. Yep, Corky ended up marrying the guy in the Llama suit that kept walking by her house in round one.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The two tied the knot in a quiet ceremony in the kitchen after Holden had stayed the night and had some great woo-hoo with Corky. Holden is a Fortune Sim with an LTW to Become Chief of Staff. But that is pretty tough to think about when he doesn't have alot of skills and is already raking in the dough with the salary of a Hall of Famer. He came loaded in his backpack as well with all kinds of junk; enough for Corky to quit her job and run the home business with all that stuff. Holden Todd was a great cash in for the Corcoran family!

However, when Holden was at work, Corky turned to her sinful ways.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Corky had an insatiable thirst for Bob Profitt. As soon as Holden left for work, Corky closed the home business and called Bob to come over. OH how she missed him! On Sim Thursday, Bob got Corky pregnant again. Of course, Holden thought the pretty little girl was his. Meet Chyla, Bob and Corky's second child.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

That only leaves one more child for Bob to have to finish off Susan Profitt's LTW to have 6 granchildren. GO YOU, BOB! Next round will mean one more baby for Bob and Corky. That will rake in the first LTW in this 'hood. And that is where we leave the Corcorans.

POINTS this round: 2 new Sims, Holden and Chyla = 2 points.

Round 2: The Rosadas

Title: Round 2: The Rosadas



I think this house was just as bad this round as running it with 5 teens as when there were three toddlers and two teens. Mainly because there was only ONE bathroom. Try that with five teenaged girls!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Amethyst, being the Simoleon minded girl with the fortune aspiration decided to make a little money on the side and put out a poker table and ticket machine and commenced to rack in the cash. She actually found time to skill up to Mascot in her teen career and was able to win the Young Entrepanuer Scholarship. Here she is exercising to gain body skill. I thought this was a really cool picture with the Schurzenjaer's house in the background down the hill.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The Rosada girls began to grow up; Brigid was the first. She grew up Fortune, her LTW is to own 5 Top Level Businesses.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Danielle was next...the same as her sister. Fortune. She wants to own 5 Top Level Businesses as well.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Next was Ariana...she was different. She grew up Popularity, and wants to be a Hall of Famer. Great. Of course, the two new Fortune Sims spun up immediate wants to get into Private School, so even though the Rosada girls were poorer than dirt, Family Sim Aquamarine decided to find a way to make it happen for her sisters. She called up the Headmaster for a visit.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Much to my chagrin, the hardest headmaster to please showed up, the same one that visited the Romas last round. Korey Something. He apparently likes to visit the poorest houses. Due to Aquamarine's superb conversational skills, Korey let the girls into private school with a score of 101. All three Fortune Sims in the house immediately went to plat thanks to their timid Family Sim sister.

Amethyst and Aquamarine left for University. In fact, Amethyst never got a chance to wear the PS uniform as Korey came on Sunday. And that is where we leave the Rosadas.

POINTS this round: None

Round 2: The Schurzenjagers

Title: Round 2: The Schurzenjagers



Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Hans the Knowledge Sim got a bee in his bonnet and called the Headmaster and fulfilled his want to get into private school. He also managed 4 academic scholarships before he left for university late Sunday night.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Speaking of scholarships, that is basically all that happened in the Schurzenjager house this round. Skilling, skilling, and more skilling. Even Hilda's new husband Benjamin Long did a lot of skilling as he didn't have the skills to reach his LTW. Hilda basically is biding time here...as HER time was coming.....

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

That's right....Grim came for Hilda, my first death in Fellowship. She was the ripe old age of 67. Nobody in the house seemed to be real upset about it, except her husband Ben. She died while she and Ben were having a date. I thought they had enough time to finish the date before 6 pm...they were working to get her into platinum so she could have a pretty headstone. Ben, of course, got a memory of a date gone bad. But, she got the plat headstone. :)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Heidi grew up with an aspiration to marry off 6 kids, yup, a Family Sim. Gotta love 'em. Isn't she a beauty? Kudos to the creator of this family!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

So the round ends with Hans leaving for college, Ben on the 'scope trying to get abducted, and Heidi skilling. Benjamin (Long) Schurzenjager is a Knowlege Sim, but is keeping a 'baby' want! So he is out there every night trying to get the Aliens to notice him. Maybe he should move to the Jenkins house....they get too much Alien action over there!

At any rate, Ben was so disraught over Hilda's death, he took the money from her life insurance, bulldozed the Swiss Chalet the family was living in and bought a nice large Victorian. And that is where we leave the Schurzenjagers.

Points this round - A plat headstone for Hilda.

Round: 2 The Profitts


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Title: Round 2: The Profitts



Bob didn't do anything spectacular with his love life, but traded daily dream dates between Corky and Beulah Norwood to keep him in plat so he could skill to get promotions. Ended the round for him as a Superstar in athletics.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Michael grew up to teen, aspiration Fortune with an LTW of earn $100,000, thank god not 5 top level businesses. Charles reached TOC of his teen career and became an Intern in the political field, and got the Young Entrepanuer scholarship. Being a Fortune Sim, Michael of course rolled an immediate want to get into private school, so he got himself and his brothers in. Don't the Profitt boys look handsome in their uniforms?

Craig the Romance Sim was constantly dragging his tongue around in the dirt wanting a kiss, so finally he invited Michaell Cooprider over, and they had first kiss during a dream date. Charles and Hedwig were having a date at the same time, and had their first kiss as well.

Craig happened to see Temperance Kirkendall walk by one day. She stood in front of the house doing the `buzzing' lips thang waiting for somebody to come say hi to her, but I couldn't get Craig out in time. But he saw her. Even though he never met her, now he talks about her constantly with hearts over his head. I am thinking she is "THE ONE" for him. He is romance, she is popularity. So look for that couple in the future.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Susan decided to get out of the "Family Sim" doldrums and went looking for a husband. She found Mr. Big II Andrew Cox. With the money he brought into the family, the Profitts bulldozed their shack and bought a beautiful Victorian mansion. My goal is for everyone to eventually live in a Victorian. Andrew is a Professional Party Guest. Charles left for Uni.

And that is where we leave the Profitts for Round 2.

POINTS this round: 1 new Sim Andrew (Mr. Big) Profitt = 1 point.
