Welcome back toImprismed and theGeebiv family! If you’veread the last chapter,you’ll realize that thisloading screen is trulymore indicative of whatis actually going on inthe Geebiv household.Body language speaks,even in pixels.
Our third generationheir, Scarlett has justtransitioned to toddler.She is a 2/9/2/10/9 Libraand in case you can’t tell,her color is red. She didfinally get her makeover.She’s been a delight sofar, happy to dance andskill. She’s a quick littlelearner too. Not sure ifit’s the smart milk, fall,her personality or acombination of all theabove.
Obsidian and Demi haveworked things out forthe most part. There’sstill a bit of hate red inDemi’s panel, but she’snot refusing himanymore. It thinkthey’re on the mend.
Obsidian has been busywith Scarlett. Scarlett isa total Daddy’s girl andObsidian is plat becauseof his influence bar sohe can give her smartmilk and teach her skillsquickly.
He’s rolled the want forall three.I always have them startwith potty training. Itmakes life a lot easier.Cuts down on cryingstinky babies.
And look! They’rebestest friends too!Obsidian moved on towalking but didn’t finishbecause he finally got ajob in the Educationcareer track and had togo to work.
When he got home,Demi cornered himbelow the stairs and putthe moves on. Like Isaid, their relationship istruly on the mend.
Though she did get herlicks in when she forcedhim to be impaled by thestairs. Fitting paybackfor his indiscretion.Apparently his humbledemeanor andacceptance of true painwas enough to make hertrust him again.
Skill learning wascontinued during theday while Demi andObsidian were at work.Uma worked on itenough to get Scarlett’smarkers up high so thatObsidian could finishthem up when he gothome.
Demi rolled the want toteach her the NurseryRhyme, so I let her. Shedid not have the benefitof platinum status tomake smart milkthough.
They finished up fairlyquickly though. Scarlettis a really quick learner.
Roy and Uma I neverhave to worry about. If Ineed them forsomething, they’reeither here, or in bed.
Or playing instruments.Both have maxed theirenthusiasm for music sothey’re “in the zone”.
Obsidian was at a highenough level career-wiseto get the EducationBookcase. He was alsothe first to use it to gainthe necessary skill pointsfor his next promotion.
*Insert your favoritecurse word here becauseI probably used them all*Demi is pregnant. Thiswas not a rookie mistakeeither. This was becauseACR hates me. They arenot allowed to try forbaby. They are allowedto woohoo all they want,and that includes therisks that go along withit. Now, you’re probablythinking that I shouldjust remove ACR, but…Iactually like having thesurprises and diversity itoffers.
She looks so smug aboutit too. If there was ananimation where a simcould stick their tongueout at me, I think shewould be using it rightnow.Rule #5, we don’t needno stinkin’ Rule #5.At least it’s only one.
Demi’s maternity leaveallows her to spendmore time with Scarlett.Since she’s learned allher skills, a lot of thattime is reading storiesand singing the nurseryrhyme.
The red room upstairshas become quite thefamily gathering place.
For all members at alltimes. Scarlett hascornered her mother forone more nursery rhymebefore it is time to growup.
She’s super outgoing,but had the fear of aparty, so there was noparty. Just Mom andDad. Grandma andGrandpa were occupied.Uhem...woohoo…uhem.
Isn’t she pretty?!Off to the wardrobe foryou young missy.
Uma loves that Demi ispregnant again. I gaveher family as a secondaryand she does this all thetime. Obsidian hasn’tdone it once.
He did top his careerthough and is nowpermaplat for real.
Demi went into laborduring a woohoosession. Obsidian wasdisappointed andprotested by foregoingclothing for it.Not really. He spun intoclothes just as her laborreally started.
Meet Carmine Geebiv,unauthorized spare ofgeneration three, andprobable clone of hissister.Carmine does mean red.It’s also the name of theguy who was in love withShirley on Laverne &Shirley. You youngstersprobably have no ideawhat I’m talking about.
Ahh, things in theGeebiv house arereturning to an even,loving place asevidenced in thisloading screen. Sufficeit to say that Obsidianand Demi have salvagedtheir relationship.
Marsha, Marsha,Marsha. I haven’ t seenMarsha in a dog’s age ingame.Scarlett started schooland brought her hometo play the very first day.
She’s a bundle of energyand still totally aDaddy’s girl. Shewelcomes him homefrom work every day.
Demi rolled the want tohave Scarlett go toPrivate School and theheadmaster was invited.It was a rough visit, but awell timed threatsuggestion from Umadid the trick and Scarlettwas welcomed into theschool.
Scarlett has beensleeping in the MurphyBed that was installedduring the maritaldiscord between herparents. She doesn’tmind too much. Ofcourse, there are thosetimes when one of theadults will forget she’ssleeping and turn on thejukebox, but there aretons of things to do inthe great room when shewakes up every morning.
Like burp the alphabetinto the podiummicrophone. She’s up tothe letter “N”.Actually, I hate thisanimation. It’s grossand it’s so repetitive andobnoxious. Every kidshe brings home isdrawn to this too, inspite of the niceplayground they have setup.
More burpers. Marshaasked if she could bringa friend, and he tunedout to be the RickyCormier clone here.
Carmine is a bit of adifficult baby. He’signored by most of thehousehold.
Though it was a bitconcerning when hetried to smother him oneday with his sweater. It’sokay, Roy. True, he is anunauthorized spare, butyou don’t have to takesuch drastic measures.
The one-eyed monsterbecame an effectivebabysitter though.Especially when bothcouples in the house hadother things to attend to.Uhem…woohoo…uhem.
Ebony still stops byevery now and then. It’snot so bad. She’s gettingto know her niece andnephew. This occasionis special though. It’s abirthday party forCarmine.
Gilbert is just sittingback on the couchwaiting for theentertainment to begin.Last time, Sandy Bruty’sfight was the best timehe had seen in years.You never knew whatwas going to happen at aGeebiv party.
The cake was broughtout, and Uma had thehonors. The crowdgathered, blew hornsand cheered.
And Uma stood there foran inordinate amount oftime holding Carmine.You can see Roy’sfrustration. It’s like he’ssaying, “just throw thebaby already woman!”
Alas, it was not to be.Baby diaper changed,another cake wasprocured and this timeDemi brought littleCarmine to blow out thecandles.
And Demi put the babyon the floor instead ofthrowing him in the air.Gilbert thought the fightwas much moreentertaining. TheGeebiv’s were going tohave to improve theentertainment if theyexpected everyone tohave a good time.Oh, ignore the wallpaperchange. I had a slight cccull error and it was atemporary replacement.
Carmine was put intothe crib and everyonemade their way homeand to bed.He woke in the middleof the night and Demitried to comfort him tono avail. She took himdown to the kitchenthinking he might behungry.
Before she could get abottle though, hejumped from her armsand she was holding atoddler.
Careful what you wishfor Demi. Remember,this was your choice, notmine.Carmine is a clone of hissister. *makes note toroll dice next time thegame is opened*He’s a 2/9/2/10/9 Libra.
The following daysproved difficult for allthe adults in the house.Carmine wouldn’t pottytrain…
…and hated the bathtub.There were other issuestoo, such as blocks beingthrown and drawingsbeing scribbled on.Thank plumbbob thestuffed bear wasn’t in thenursery at the time. Itlikely would have nostuffing left.
Eventually, Carminesettled down a bit, toeveryone’s relief. Pottytraining finally wascompleted.
He even came to enjoyhis baths. Well, perhapsenjoy isn’t the right verb.Maybe tolerate is abetter word.
Winter came and snowfell. Demi decided tomake a snowman.
She was interrupted byObsidian and decided tofinish it later.
“„Tis a cryin‟ shamethe crime of leavingyou unfinished, mylovely crystallizedminion.”
“I shall have torecalculate the planfor domination overall Simland.”
Scarlett was excited forthe first snow of theseason. It was the firstshe had ever seen andshe couldn’t wait to playin it.
Roy and Uma alsoenjoyed the snow. Itdidn’t effect their cuddletime outside whatsoever.
Scarlett was a very goodbig sister. She helpedlook after Carmine whenthey both woke in themorning.
She was very good atentertaining him as well.Carmine loved his bigsister.
Carmine also wasintroduced to Ebony.Besides having theirunauthorized existencein common, I hope tomove him into Ebony’shouse when he’s anadult. They can keepeach other company.
There was definitely aconnection there. Thetwo bonded almostimmediately.
Then Ebony wentdownstairs and watchedher parents on thecouch. O.o
I’d throw up too Eb. Notsure why she’s puking.Could be what she justsaw, could be she atesomething. Pretty sureshe isn’t preggo. I don’tthink I have a hack inthat would let her andher girlfriend do that.
The next birthday partywas a double party, andjust the family was there.
Scarlett is pretty. Shegot a nice mix of facialfeatures I think.She rolled Popularity,joining her Father, Auntand both Grandparentsin aspiration.(Obsidian’s issecondary). I think mydice are cursed.Her LTW is to become aRock God, OTH isNature, and TO/O areundies-glasses/full facemake-up.
The nursery wasremodeled a bit. Thekids will share a roomwith a divider for a littleprivacy.
Well, hello Juan Harris!Look, green eyes!Scarlett brought himhome. Fingers crossedshe likes him. I know wemarried in a towniealready, but how can youpass this up?!
Carmine is still troubled.He is a very fitful sleeper,tossing and turningmost of the night.
That is until Roy comesand tucks him in. It’slike he knows hisgrandson is fretting.
He’ll usually settle downafter his Grandpasoothes him.
Speaking of Roy, his lifebar is getting shorter andshorter. I’m not surehow much longer hehas. He might not makeit until Scarlett goes tocollege. Uma and hespend as much timetogether as possible andcan usually be founddancing somewhere onthe property. I reallylove these two.
Scarlett got a job in themusic track. A littlehead start for my littleRock Star.Demi wants her to be anoverachiever.
She brought home DavidOttomas. Really? Juandid nothing for you, butDavid does?
Yeah, he does a littlesomething for her. INHER PARENTSBEDROOM! GET OUTOF THERE!!
Luckily, Carmine has herback and rushes in tosave her before Davidtakes advantage of herdelicate teenagesensibilities. [/sarcasm]
Or he’s just tired and thebed is the mostcomfortable.Regardless, his ployworked and David leftshortly afterward.
Just before the tree inthe yard went up inflames and Obsidianscared us by rushing outto do his fire dance. Therain did finally put itout.
But storms came backwith a vengeance, thistime setting thetelescope ablaze. Onceagain, the rain took careof it before it did anyreal damage. I’m justglad no one was lookingthrough it at the time.
Carmine may be theunauthorized spare thisgeneration, but he loveshis family and they alllove him. There wassome cause for concernwhen he was younger,but he’s seemed to havefound his niche now.
Scarlett topped her teencareer after two or threedays of working.Her mother got heraspiration points forhaving an overachiever.
On everyone’s day off,the entire family headedto the park.
Roy and Carminebecame best friendsafter a short game of redhands.
The kids greeted someother children andplayed on the swings fora time before deciding totry their hand at fishing.
The adults tookadvantage of theglorious weather andbehaved as they usuallydo at home, chit-chatting and dancing.
Carmine was the onlyone to catch somethingthat wasn’t a boot.
Back at home, Demifinally got that finallogic skill point sheneeded for herpromotion to CityPlanner. Now she justneeded to get a day atwork.
Obsidian also wrote andsold a great novel abouta man who fell in lovewith two women andhow he overcame thedifficulties that causedin his life. It was onlysemi-autobiographical.
Roy’s life bar was gettingclose to being full, so hegave Carmine his cellphone.
Sure enough, thatevening, Grim showedup with the hula girls.
Ebony had been invitedover, knowing that Roy’stime was coming close.
The entire familymourned. His estatewas divided between 19people, including theheadmaster of theprivate school.
Carmine took it reallyhard, breaking downquite regularly.
Obsidian honored hisfather by playing afantastic blues riff on hisfavorite guitar.
Roy was laid to rest inthe garden behind thehouse where he an Umahad spent so many goodtimes with each other.
Uma was often foundout there, keeping himinformed about whatwas happening in thefamily.
Roy, Roy, Roy. You wereawesome as a founder. Idon’t think you ever meta sim you didn’t like.You were a great founderand didn’t let your looksslow you down at all.Your slouch, slobtendencies, ability tomake friends andkindness are still evidentin the third generation.You will be missed.
Life slowly went back tonormal. Scarlettbrought friends homefrom school, got goodgrades, worked, andbuilt up her skill levelsfor scholarships.
Demi finally achievedher life time want andtopped the architecturecareer track becoming acity planner.
There were all kinds oficons floating abovetheir heads that night.
It was also the samenight that Carminewould transition to teen.He didn’t have a party,but there were a ton ofpeople at the houseanyway.
If we look more closelyat Obsidian, he seemsmore concerned withthe large red heartfloating above his babygirl’s head.
Carmine didn’t fare quiteas well as his sister, hismouth and cheeks beinghis most identifyingfeatures.I have a plethora ofPopularity sims, andCarmine did not want tobe left out. He rolledpopularity too and wantsto own five top levelbusinesses. Yeah, goodluck with that one. HisOTH is Nature (like hissister) and his TO/O areJewelry – Red Hair /Cologne. Clone.
We also had to do a VeryBad Thing. We invitedthe College Ho’s over.They’re both membersof the Greek House, andthe original plan was tohave them becomefamily friends sogeneration threewouldn’t have muchtrouble getting in.Scarlett and Carminenow have them both ontheir contact lists andcan use their cell phonesto build enough of afriendship with them toget in.Luckily, drama wasavoided.
Uma’s life bar wasquickly approaching it’sfull point so she invitedEbony over for a visit.Ebony brought Audreywith her and Uma wasable to become friendswith her.
It turned out she hadone more day after thatand she spent it playinggames and chatting withher grandchildren.
Carmine invited AngieMacarevich over andthey shared their firstkiss.
They also shared hisparents bed anddemented hearts wereflying. To celebrate, theyoung couple did thesmustle.That sweet, innocentdress she’s wearing is alie.
As expected, thatevening Uma felt a chillas she was talking toDemi in the bathroom.
Note that it is thesmallest bathroom inthe house. Which madeit difficult to get anyshots, let alone goodshots.
But it did allow for somehumorous things.The real way Grimmakes sure sims willcome with him is toshove his scythe intotheir skulls.
He then merges withfamily members that arestill living.
Notice Angie trying toingratiate her way intothe family by pretendingshe is sad about Umadying. She neverformally met Uma.I’m telling you, the dressis a lie.
Picture with the wallsdown to show you howmany people were thereand crowded around asUma made her finaldeparture.No picture, but everyonewas just as broken upabout her passing asthey were about Roy’s
Uma, you were perfectthe minute you turnedaround and handed Roythat drink. Yourneatness and energycomplemented himperfectly. As foundingpower couples go, youwere part of the best.You will be missed.
I don’t want to end on acompletely sad note, sohave a nice picture of thefounding coupleenjoying themselves inthe garden.
