The Sixth Season: Summer Smithe By: CanImarryapony Arbor Watch: A BACC
Welcome back to Arbor Watch! I've broken my rule about playing ahead so these chapters are coming out as fast as I can get them written. Also this will be the last update in open office. My wonderful stepmom bought me Microsoft Office for Chrismas which means Powerpoint. I'm so excited.
We last left Ethan in the hands of Pirate Steve, I still need to keelhaul him for hijacking my computer. Any way the lad, umm Ethan had a pretty uneventful first week.
The morning started out just like every morning should with cereal.
As soon as the sun came up I sent Ethan to digging. I want him to be able to open his club this rotation.
I got bored with the digging and let Ethan start greeting the walk This is Lilly Do, her and Ethan hit it off right off the bat,
They're so cute together and I don't have anybody with brown hair. Drat, why are you already attached to Dagmar Ethan.
Speaking of Daggie, Ethan says goodbye to Lilly and calls Dagmar up. Because I have a plan. While he's at the phone I also had him adopt Joy. I want ghost mutt Soda babies.
Dagmar and Joy arrive about the same time, which one should Ethan greet first?
Dagmar and Ethan have a lovely dinner of burnt spaghetti.
A quick make out session later and Daggie dearest moved in. She brought in a whooping 16gs. Perfect enough to get Smithe's Underground start and then some.
Let's just say one thing always leads to another and they had a nice night with a lullaby accompaniment.
Soda and Joy were off to a good start. Not even 12 hours together and they start fighting. So I'll admit it I intervened. I turned control pets on and made them play together until they were dropping from exhaustion.
Day two starts early with pancakes. Boy Dagmar is an early bird, it must be from being the mail lady for so long.
It's hard to see and I'm sorry, but this is the other junk Dagmar had in her inventory.
As soon as Ethan gets up and dressed, I have him purchase Smithe's Underground. I feel a little bad for using Dagmar's money on Ethan. Ah well can't let morality get in the way of simming.
To make it up to her, I sent Dagmar up to Komei's Klothes for a new outfit.
Taadaa, I like this outfit on her, if not its shoes. They distort the foot a bit. But when do I never take pictures of my sims feet.
Here's her a new hair style too, none of my CC hairs fit her right, sometimes you just have to go with the classics.
What's with things and puddles. I don't even want to discuss the origin of said puddles, but really rolling in it. Gross.
Day two was very lazy. It was Sunday, meaning I couldn't send Ethan up to the club quite yet. So him and Daggie, puttered around the house. Taking naps and eating mostly.
Ethan settles to watch Tv while Dagmar goes to bed early. You guys are so exciting
Day three began with an early baby bump. Daggie is unimpressed.
I failed to mention this, but Dagmar has almost all her skill points and loves to cook. She always wants food. Maybe she needs a cafe too.
Ethan and Dagmar are adorable together, but I can't stop thinking about Lilly. Hmm....
Day Three is Monday meaning Ethan can go to the club. Woot.
I think Ethan is confused. Smithe's Underground is going to a club club not a birdwatching club.
Taadaa! I'm actually quite proud of the Underground. So proud I completely neglected to take interior pictures woot! Anyways it has a stage and a bubbleblower. I was going to do a poker table, but that's more barish than clubish. And there is now a spot open in the slacker career. Which will be Daggie's.
And this is our first customer, Sarah McCarthy. Doesn't exactly fit the clubbin' scene...
Every good club has a bar and every bar needs a bartender. I just wish the options weren't only vacation and binned sims.
Peter Sims was the only available nonbinner sim so I snatched him. Luckily since bartenders need no skills, they'll work for a steady 15 dollars an hour.
I took dozens of pictures of the patrons of the club. I've never had such a place before.
I had Ethan close up shop at sixish, it's weird running a club in the daytime. I'll have to figure something out for better hours.
At home Daggie spent the day playing with the dogs.
Ethan gets a love letter from Lilly, I forgot they had a date, whoops. Hopefully Dagmar doesn't see that.
I had Ethan bathe, I wanted him to go back to work at twoish, closer to when actual clubs start to open. This will probably be the only time he goes to work twice in one day. Apparently he feels that breaking the tub will change my mind.
Ethan didn't make it over the club until 7ish due to the fact that sims need some weird thing called sleep.
I worry about the fate of Underground when Katy McGraw is the first customer. Two old ladies in a row.
We got both ends of the spectrum. Elders and teens. Though I'm not complete comfortable with her here, but what can you do.
There finally enough money to fill the stage, I was debating about instruments, but I decided on the stand up mircophone.
A reviewer came, but he left and didn't say anything. I blame Ethan's bad comedy routine.
Back at the house, Dagmar is still looking for a position in the Slacker career but no dice. I think the newspaper hates me.
The clocks ticks over into Day Four and she hits her third trimester.
The leader of the pack makes an appearance, I want a werewolf. I haven’t had one yet even after all these years of playing. I think I've had everything else at some point in time, just not a werewolf.
Remind me that next time I start a BACC to go with cats, they're much less messy.
There wasn't much to do until Ethan went to work so I had him dig while Dagmar puttered around.
Ethan started wanting a toy making bench. I gave him one after he arrived at Underground, I has an idea. I never thought of him as a toy maker, but why the heck not.
Ethan works making toy bricks while Peter mans the bar. Luckily enough the club is roughly self sufficient.
I had to hire a second bartender, because I'm keeping the club open until 2a.m. Just like in real life. But Peter is a wuss and can't handle the whole shift so what'shisface gets called in at midnight.
I finally let Ethan away from his toy making bench to make some actual friends. At least before he has to close up shop and head home.
Back home Joy gives birth! Bane finally has grandpups.
Two boys and a girl. The white one is Cola, and the two grays ones are Pepsi and Pepper. Pepsi has the slightly darker head and Pepper is the only girl.
Because everyone loves phone shots. Ethan is buying his second store The Toy Chest. I wanted to stick with the slightly pirate feel to poor Ethan. I should have named the club Tortuga or something, but alas.
Ethan does a bit of cleaning before going to bed, I would say that I can't wait for maids. But I think I'm getting used the fact of everybody cleaning up after themselves.
Day Five bring Babies!!!!!!!! Yep that's right babies.
Arbor Watch has it's first set of Triplets, First born is Benedict, he's skin 3. Next up is Cassie, she's the only girl and is skin4. And lastly is Leon, who is skin 2 like his momma. All of them have Ethan's brown eyes and black hair.
Chaos begins immediately, two people and three babies doesn't work out very well. And Dagmar decided that Leon was her favorite. She is always holding him.
I love the little kicker toy thing. Nut all the babies do is just sleep in it, meanies.
The babies are finally settled. So Ethan can go make some money at his new toy store.
I had Ethan dig around while he waited on customers to start arriving, not that he had much luck with it.
The store did well enough for it's first day, not quite making it to level 1.
After Ethan finishes up, I sent him to the club for a bit. Look I started putting lights in aren't they nice?
Back home Daggie isn't being as bad of a mom as I wanted her to be. Her favorite is still Leon, but she cared for the other two as well. Way to throw a wrench in the plans Dagmar.
She's still looking for a job in the slacker career since it's unlock. But no dice, I think this game hates me for jobs. My legacy founder can't find the right job either. And yes I'm shamelessly plugging my Pokemon Legacy. Shamelessly I tell you.
Okay even with Dagmar being a good mother I can still go on with my master plan. Dagmar and Ethan don't really work together so arguments are bound to happen.
I almost forgot it's Reno Day, they couldn't afford much, but at least I got them a new bed. They'll need it when the babies are toddlers.
And that wraps up this rotation. Finally I can't tell you how long this took to get out. Next chapter will be in powerpoint woot!
