Here is Pascal first alien daughter, and his next daughter Addison grace with a townie he married not long after Anastasia Jane's birth. Anastasia is going to be a romantic adventure and Addison is going to be a criminal with a aspiration of money. I love how anastaia looks I can't wait to see how her life unfolds and Addison looks just like her mother.
She's not quite sure what to do with the smelly, screaming, wriggly thing that is her little sister.
Being a good Knowledge sim, Marcus Baldwin decides to investigate what happens when Bigfoot is unexpectedly pelted in the head with a water balloon. His little sister seems baffled by his actions, but she's not a scientist, she just doesn't understand.
Dave Ottomas, only child of David Ottomas and Susana Casa (the lady in maroon) grows up and does the family proud.
Though he's Popularity rather than Romance, he homes right in on the cutest girl in the room, Guadalupe Newson.
Gabriella Newson of Strangetown grew up into a Family aspiration and...I've seen less fortunate track suits. "I don't have to go to school like this, do I? We have enough money for clothes?" Don't worry, honey, I wouldn't do that to you.
Her brother Gallagher is going to melt in that sweater vest in the desert. "But all the magazines and commercials show the classy kids going to school like this!" Those are all shot in New England, honey. Trust me, it won't do anything for you here.
Mason Hamilton, Family, freaking out as his mother gives birth to their last two children, Adrian and Marian.
"Oh God! More babies! Okay! Okay!"
The hypocrite teen, Michael Miguel, who wants to inherit his father's money, as of now. He doesn't seem amused with the whole toasting. Oh and this outing was made for him. Fortune Sims...
Fifth teen of the Vijayakar's, Fortune, discusses safes and, well, depositories perhaps? She's the same age as Matt Hart, sitting opposite of her. She came with him from school. She's gonna be great in the Business track in the future, perhaps?
I couldn't help but say that Alice Collins grew up to be beautiful and gorgeous (and sexy), especially in those H&M clothes. She had her head tilted like that the whole time and kept a smile on her face.
The final collapse of the Hermia Capp/Puck Summerdream relationship. Public, profane, and very ugly.
Hermia can't believe Puck is doing this to her in public. Sure, she had WooHoo with Mercutio when she was engaged to Puck, but Puck and her had their first time together, and it wasn't like she was with a different guy every night. How dare he call her a "sluttish punk" in front of a whole street? This will be in the tabloids tomorrow, she knows it...
(Compare this to the happy scene in the last picture of this post. It looks like Bottom was right to be doubtful about their relationship...)
Have Mansions & Gardens without Apartment Life and can't find the University espresso bar? You're not the only one! I claim whatever dubious bragging rights there are for proving this is yet another M&G-without-AL bug.
Natasha grows up into the conservative patriarchal atmosphere of the Casa family with a Pleasure aspiration and a penchant for other girls. Papi's gonna have a little trouble with her - she has no intention of getting with his program! (That rule about not wearing makeup to school? Pfftt! What does he expect her to do on the bus, homework?)
Her twin brother Stephen feels the pressures of the tradition in a different way.
He realizes almost instantaneously on growing up that he and his sister's friend Pearl Onions triple bolt, so he wastes no time acting on the knowledge.
He at once begins to make plans accordingly. It doesn't occur to him to wonder whether Pearl is on the same page or not. (Family for him, Knowledge for her - experimentation is not a commitment, mijo!)
Sid Subject shows off her new bedroom to her boyfriend Aldous Gieke. Now that she's no longer sharing a room with her little minion-sister Pearl, her parents said she could redo her room and put up whatever paint or wallpaper she wanted. It was pretty cool, really. Aldous seems impressed, too.
"So, whatcha think? It's not quite Sackman's Chamber of Aloneitude, but it definitely kicks ass."
"I dunno... what kind of superhero has skulls on her walls and spaceship sheets?"
Whatever. Okay, so the sheets were kind of lame ... but at least the bed provides an excellent springboard for her heroic take-off!
Sid and Aldous are great, but consider the fallout! Superhero battles every time they argue over whose turn it is to do the dishes!
"There you are! I was afraid you didn't make it."
"Why wouldn't I? I don't see your brother - did your father call off the dogs?"
"No, he's getting a burger." Andice takes some deep breaths and tries to remember all the things Ma and Granny have told her. Eye contact, don't overdo it on the hands, don't wince if his palms are sweaty because that's a good sign - oh, he's so adorable! It's just the Convenient Stores, but when she's there with Pascal, it's the most romantic place in the world!
After hanging out giving each other backrubs and playing pinball:
"We got to get back. Um."
Screw it. Mom said she'd probably have to take the lead on this and she can't stand waiting any longer. Who cares Lance is tapping his watch? She dives in for his mouth. And gets his nose.
But then she finds his mouth, and - wow.
So that's what lips are for! She'd always thought it had something to do with "M" and "P" sounds!
On the one hand, Lance thinks, Dad is being silly about Andice. On the other hand, Dad trusts him to look after her and not let rampaging horndog boys take advantage of her. But having Andice owe him a favor could come in handy.
"Okay, now, just so you remember - we don't actually need Dad to beat you up if anything bad happens!"
"Lance! Stop it!"
"I'll remember! I'll remember!"
Oh gosh, you're right -- that could get ugly D: "It's my turn!" "No, dammit, it's my turn!" "Freeze ray!" "Robats!"
Pascal and Andice are too adorable, and Lance is such a good big brother!
Sid got home from school to find that her aunt Silicon was visiting. Ruby and Silicon aren't particularly close -- and Ruby treated her older half-sister like a hostile invader the entire time she was there, to the point where I felt guilty watching her anxiously distract Silicon and keep herself between her and the rest of her family -- so Sid didn't even get scolded when she lobbed a waterballoon at her aunt. After all, antiheroes have to fight dirty sometimes.
A happy Dave Ottomas sandwich, hula dancing with Alma and Guadalupe Newson at his Casa cousins' birthday party.
After falling in love with Andice Point in front of the warehouse, Pascal Neugierig suddenly went upstairs to relax on the air mattress. There's no animation for it, but I thought it was clear enough what he was doing. You really think nobody'll figure it out, Pascal? "If there's no animation, nobody can prove a thing."
Pearl Onions gets up early to fish in the front yard with her grandparents before school.
Madeleine Estic-Moiselle is leaving for campus soon, so she gets her kitty fix in now.
Oh, no! Minerva's off-to-college party is likely to be ruined due to the enmity between Lance Point and Alta Mira Starchild (which is based on nothing more substantial than mutual grouchiness and refusal to give ground). What shall she do?
Distraction, that's the ticket! Plus, Minerva's little brother Eugene is cripplingly shy and needs a boost. So Minerva influences Alta Mira to flirt with him.
She didn't bank on Eugene actually being shy enough to refuse a flirt from one of the hottest, highest-ranking girls in school, whom he admires from afar!
Not your day, is it, Alta Mira? "Eh, his loss. And don't you worry about the Lance situation - I'll fix his little red wagon!"
