A becoming-big-(wo)man-on-campus montage: (P.S. About the painting shown in some pictures- yes, it's a teleporter painting. But it was just so I didn't have to wait for them to walk over for these pictures! It's not like Chrysanthemum got to interact with any of them, so it just impacted spares anyway.) When you’re down and troubled
I'm not alone though. But if I can get to the society and take what I need while Otieno's not looking... Well, it won't matter that he's keeping an eye on me.
I finished learning all my skills, and now I can do what I want to do.
I made friends with everyone except Natalie. I still don't remember anything from before, but I've been managing.
I got in the secret society, too! “You can't talk about it to anyone, though! Except everyone here. We're all members.” “Are you sure it's secret? Seems everyone knows about it.” “Yeah, that's because one of our members keeps blabbing.”.
Thanks to the snapdragon that always is by me I hardly ever have to energize anymore.
And I'm saving flower-making for my last year. If Brooke got it in one year, so can I!
So I was so happy when Brooke showed us the salon she'd bought. _____ I bet you thought she'd open a toy shop. Nope! I decided on a nice little salon. And that black-and-white thing is an electronic cashier. You know how some sims leave without paying? That's to prevent that. As soon as they step out they pay for anything they bought that they haven't already payed for.
Dear Diary, I said that was silly before, and I'll say it again. But I can't be bothered thinking of another greeting. Anyway, I opened my first business! Tosha and I are the stylists...
And Chrysanthemum handles sales. Tosha and her still aren't big women on campus, so that's why they're helping out rather than, say, Otieno and Hummingbird, or any other combination. The work they do here will help them meet some potential friends.
My first make-over was a disaster! And everyone comes to me first, rather than Tosha. _____ I have a hack that makes the clown make-up invisible for cosmetic purposes, but I'm betting that she has that on. Unfortunately, it also apparently eliminates the possibility that the player can actually do something.
Chrysanthemum's a fast learner, though. She got a bronze badge pretty quickly.
We saw a lot of familiar faces. First was Jay. _____ He doesn't have the same face he had in the old neighborhood- I don't think any of my remakes do. Most just have Ani/Almond's face, depending on whether or not they had elf ears. I say they had to have plastic surgery because their faces were messed up thanks to the glitches of Emerald Arch.
Told you Chrysanthemum was quick! She got a silver badge out of Jay.
Chrysanthemum even got her gold badge! I was so glad I chose her for my salesperson, she was obviously perfect for the job.
The next familiar face was the witch Holden met. Her face was a bit different and she had new skin, hair, and clothes, and she wasn't a witch, but otherwise she was pretty much the same, I guess. _____ My face is more face-one like because the old one I made in bodyshop and I made this one in CAS. And yep, my simself bought some stuff!
Chrysanthemum got back into the habit of hanging out with Madame Energizer. Everyone else didn't have to move as much, so snapdragons did the trick. But she moved around frequently, and that and all the dazzling she did really took a toll on her. She says it was worth it, though. ____ The term Madame Energizer was first used in the Fitzhugh Legacy I think. The author, smoothiequeen, is now working on the Villainous Apocalypse. Read it!
Amar Legacy, one of our customers, was the next familiar face. We didn't actually know him, but his face seemed awfully familiar... _____ Cookies for whoever guesses right!
Then Cardinal payed us a visit. She seemed kind of down, and her clothes were not her at all. Then again, I hardly knew her, so what would I know? _____ A little side-story of the recreated sims: I put the eight of them (Yew, Aspen, Woodpecker, Cardinal, Eagle, Hawk, Jay, and Robin) in an asylum! Aspen was the controllable sim. He got them all out, but close to elderhood. And their clothes were one of the first 5, so most of them are not what I'd normally have picked for them.
I did another bad makeover. Spiky Hair (I forgot his name) didn't tip me, needless to say.
We got a reporter, but she didn't write up a review on us.
We even got thrown some negative stars from some jerks.
Still, we were moving up the ranks quickly, and Trista came around to see how we were doing. Apparently James decided to start a bachelor challenge when he was resurrected and found out he wasn't still married to Amy, and Trista won. She's pregnant, though she's not showing yet.
That witch visits pretty regularly, and Chrysanthemum (shown here complaining about being tired) found out she's the creator. The creator shops at my store! I'm so happy!
I'm learning how to do good hairdos, too. As in not turn Chrysi's cousins bald and give old guys spiky hair.
Amar's wife, Gaia Legacy, who's heavily pregnant, came by. _____ Her face is the same face as the foundress of my unpublished legacy. She even had the same name and eye color. The real Gaia's an alien, though.
We got another simself, too. Puddinroy came when she heard from our creator how great the shop is. _____ Hi puddinroy!
Along with James, which was awkward for Chrysi. She didn't know her great-grandparents of course, but the fact that her great-grandpa had decided not to remarry her great-grandma after being resurrected was a bit awkward. She still dazzled the heck out of him.
Seriously, I ought to give them a pay raise- or a pay at all, for that matter. They're working for free right now. Jay came back, and Chrysanthemum convinced him to give the makeover stations another try, and Tosha managed to give him back all his hair.
Eagle, too. Yew, Aspen, and Hawk never did show, though. Neither did Amy.
But Spiky did! Don't know why, though. I wouldn't come back if I were him. Jay only came back because we're family, and Spiky is the only other one with a bad haircut- the others only had messed-up makeup they could easily wash off.
Tosha worked her magic, though, and Spiky's hair isn't so spiky anymore.
It was the creator who gave us the 125 th star we needed to be level 10. I did it!
Poor Cardinal won't be getting any help. We're closing till college is over!

It's huge, but no one really goes there, and it was late at night. It was almost too easy.
I got what you wanted. Let me know how I should get it to you fast, it's kind of hard to hide. Tosha 56
It's too easy to convince others to do what you want.
