A very merry Christmas to those who celebrate! I’m writing this ahead of time, but I hope you’re all having a lovely day 🙂
If I’d been a little speedier I could have had some festive Seasons content to share with you, but this Supernatural generation has just kept growing and growing, so we’ll have to make do with some destroyed furniture, ill-advised woohoo, a new (well, not really new) ghost, and a whole row of fairy babies. Happy Simming, everyone!
The morning after Janessa’s party, I found a lot of the guests still hanging around outside the front door.
She invited them in for breakfast.
Everyone crowed around the coffee maker. I suppose they’d been awake all night.
They stuck around for the rest of the day, drinking even more coffee and playing games.
Mimi’s daughter Sarah messed around in the sprinklers.
Donella managed to tell some fortunes to improve her job performance.
Gabriela had something to do for work too. She’d received an opportunity to give a private reading her sometime romantic interest Dante, who she found at the beach in the middle of an argument with his housemate.
This was the first time they’d spoken in ages; in fact, Dante’s got a wife and child now. I was actually just about to have Gabriela ask him if they could just be friends, when she rolled a wish to woohoo with him! They made use of a nearby LLAMA machine.
I don’t think she enjoyed it very much.
While her mistress was out, Hazel passed away of old age. I don’t think I’ve shown any pet deaths before; I think they’re really nicely handled.
But of course I wasn’t going to pass up on the chance to add a ghost familiar to the household this generation, so I resurrected Hazel. I completely forgot that the philosopher’s stone existed and just used the ‘oh my ghost’ opportunity again. Hazel and Garbriela were very happy to see one another again.
Bonehilda likes to feed ghost Hazel treats.
I had to move a couple of sims out then in again in order to have space to resurrect Hazel, as the household was already at the maximum capacity, and, if you remember from the last part, we were also expecting three new members.
Seraphina was the first to give birth, to a little sister for Selina called Melyssa. I’ve decided I’m only going to have two heirs for the Seasons generation, and I need one of the them to be a boy (for alien-related reasons), so I just randomized Melyssa’s traits. She rolled brave and easily impressed.
As I was settling Melyssa into the nursery, I noticed that Richter had a new girlfriend, Joanie MacDuff, which meant I must have missed Juliana’s death. Sure enough, I found her tombstone in the catacombs, and was able to have the family lay her to rest.
Gabriela went over to her dad’s house to let Joanie know just what she thought of her.
Oakley’s baby was the boy I’d been waiting for, for my next generation. I named him Spencer and gave him the loves the outdoors and loves the heat traits. Donella had a boy too, called Gregor; he rolled brave and athletic.
I’ve been having a little bug that prevents me putting any of the babies in their cribs. Neither buying new cribs and resetting the babies helps; I’ve had this happen once before and that time I had to move the family out then in again to fix it. But I had a lot of big promised wishes I didn’t want to lose, so I decided just to build a little sleeping alcove using the baby swing. Those keeps their motives higher anyway.
Richter came to visit his grandson.
Keeping a keen eye on the story progression popups in case I missed something again, I noticed that Shanon had aged up into a young adult. Artur and Donella took her a birthday gift, some life fruit from their garden.
Looking after the little ones wasn’t too tough once I got them on a schedule.
Go away, Bonehilda! I must have unlocked the door by accident.
One by one they all grew up and got their wings.
Bonehilda actually became immensely helpful when they were all being potty trained. I set things up so that she could get into the kids’ bathroom, and or a couple of days, she basically did nothing but carry dirty diapers out to the bin.
But the potty training was really the only challenge. Fairy toddlers are quite easy to look after because they can drink pollen punch to fill their hunger need and put themselves to bed in the fairy houses.
They can even throw little house parties!
Selina, Melyssa, and Spencer got some werewolf abilities too. They can scratch the furniture, practice hunting, and, at nighttime, howl at the moon.
Seraphine had been hunting, too, and had managed to get find all the 40,000 simoleons worth of collectables she had promised Gabriela in exchange for lifting the werewolf curse.
Gabriela let Seraphina into her secret basement to find the blue potent cure elixir. But when she saw a purple personality adjuster in the next cabinet along, she paused to think about her beautiful fairy girlfriend, their adorable hybrid children, and all the fun she’d had finding interesting gems and bugs with Erica.
Seraphina drank down the purple potion, and now she’s a supernatural fan.
