I apologise for the very long wait. This family/save is really not liking me lately; more explanation later on.
The heir poll is a tie! So, since Maura is now a YA, she will be the TH until Gabriel also ages up, then I will control each of them on alternate days. Well, that was the plan, anyway. But I’ll explain later, for now, Maura is the sole sim being controlled.
She had a B in school, so aged up with the Proper trait. Her LTW is One Sim Band (master all instruments).
So gorgeous. And very difficult to dress; I chose to interpret “proper” as nothing low-cut or short hems, but not too old fashioned, either.
Gabe decided cleaning up the dishes was more important than going straight to bed…he did make it, luckily.
Now out from under my thumb, Tess is free to flirt with Antoine.
And fight over the rocking chair, of course.
New TH and new generation = new house!
In an effort to make things slightly more difficult, the new house only has two bathrooms. The entrance is wide open, in an effort to reduce route failure during parties and such. It was very difficult to decorate with pink and orange as favourite colours; apologies for any eyesores.
Prom time for the two younger kids!
With nothing to do, Tess continues her love affair with the outdoors; she spent the entire day outside, and earned a very deep tan as a result.
Maura goes to a community lot to play her bass, so that the idiots at home don’t fail around her.
Chadwick came home from school with Angela.
And then left right away…
Angela found the new bookcase with no issue.
Proof that Tess spent the entire day in the pool; she is now a graceful diver!
Ooh, Angela has a date!
For some reason, she chose to attend in her formal wear.
And then slid down the bannister! I’ve not seen a sim in my game do this, too cute!
She then chose to do her homework in the laundromat. Great date, Ange.
When she got home, she managed to commandeer the rocking chair, to the consternation of both her parents.
I often forget Antoine is a snob…then he does something like this to remind me.
Tess and Angela play frisbee! Tess is very good, Angela is…not so good.
Kendrick appears to have aged up, and is also graduating. So we have one spouse option for Maura.
She got Most Likely to be a Rock Star…could have worked, though she’s far too proper for that. And we have more than enough money so she doesn’t need to work.
Obligatory diploma toss!
And we’re off to the summer festival.
Most of the idiots were starving, so Maura instigated a hot dog eating contest. Some random townie beat Antoine to the fourth spot at the table.
Hey, it’s Cristina! She’s Angela’s mother, if you don’t remember, and Antoine’s sister. And wtf is Tess doing?
…apparently a School Cheer. Lols, sims.
Angela chose to sit down and do her homework after eating.
While Gabe instigated a soccer contest.
Maura accompanied Antoine to a party at Sam Shepherd’s house. Sam wasn’t there, but Kendrick Doe was! Giving trick or treats in summer, as you do.
They chatted while Antoine cooked himself some food.
And then they shared the meal, since Kendrick was starving and Maura wanted to continue talking. But Antoine looks like he could have used a bed instead of a meal.
He made it home and to bed for a nap.
Meanwhile, Tess plays in the sandbox…it’s like she’s a teenager all over again.
Ooh, that’s one way for an idiot to get an RI! Doesn’t matter than Gabe is straight, we’ll say yes anyway.
Ange is still obsessed with that damn peashooter.
The next day, it’s Leisure Day. Maura wished to throw a pool party, and thus we do.
Tess and Antoine are still all over one another all the time. And you can see in this picture how tanned she is, especially against whiter-than-white Antoine.
Guests have arrived! This is Pink’s adopted son, Timmy. He’s pretty cute, and a fairy (with pink wings, lol). Behind him, Chadwick is having a tantrum for some random reason.
Also invited was Bridgett Terrey; all the potentials eat together, for the sake of talking.
Gabe scans the room – he’s definitely not gay, and Bridgett is looking like a good option!
Nevertheless, Maura Convinces him to talk to Richelle Lau.
She’s a cute option also.
Kendrick also made the party; he was too busy swimming to bother with food. Also lol at Timmy’s belly flop in the background!
Uhoh, someone forgot something in the deep fryer.
Maura freaked out when I sent her into the room…good thing Tess is Brave, she put out the fire herself. (and I missed the pictures)
It’s also prom night for Angela and Gabe; here are the highlights:
Basically, Gabe had a great night (as per every sim who went with a date), and Angela had a bad one, though she did win prom queen.
Meanwhile, Maura was wooing Kendrick – with everything but kisses, because she’s too proper for that 😉 (in the background, Antoine found the fryer, but overcooked his food slightly)
Unfortunately, at the end of prom, my game started having issues again; crashing to desktop every time I opened the Young save. Again, the Rourke save is fine, just have problems with this one. I tried a bunch of things, and finally moved the family…only for the game to crash the second I unpaused the game in the new file. When I reopened the game, I found a save file with only Maura, in the new town (Moonlight Falls); tried this file and it worked! Played for a sim week without it crashing.
So I tried to put the new house from MH into the new save. Crash!
Tried to put just the Young family in the new save. Crash!
This is Maura’s house in MF – it’s a premade called Modern Mansion.
I only decorated the inside for now, since Maura’s alone – very orange and white!
Next time, we begin Maura’s adventures in Moonlight Falls!
