The Garden: Generation 1: Rose Bishop Ch. 3

Dummy

We start off this episode with a fire in their new house, downloaded from the gallery, created by Nathanielxy from the original by Shoumira.  It is the French Suburban House.  Lily started the fire while working on her experiments, and after the fire was extinguished, the sprinklers came on. Didn’t do much good there, sprinkler!  A day late and a whole lotta dollars short.

Alric ran away because he was being ignored and when he got back Akito couldn’t put him down. Like, literally!  I had to turn the game off and then back on to get him to turn loose of that damn dog.

Daisy and Stewart Fyres played hooky from school one day and went down to the local bar.  Not sure what the deal was, but there was a lot of nekkid people roaming around.  Poor Daisy wasn’t sure what she was seeing, but she may have been a bit traumatized by it all.  She made 2 adult friends (finishing her social aspiration) since she had finished her motor aspiration already.  When she got home, mom and dad asked her how school went and she was all, “yeah, it was good.” She did NOT get caught, so damn. I wanted to see her get caught so I knew what punishment they would give her. Oh, well.

With my concentration being on Rose and Daisy, I have been letting the others just do for themselves.  But, as most of you know, when you allow them to take care of themselves, they make stupid decisions.  Dummy Akito decided to eat the Cowplant’s cake instead of going in and eating the huge meal that Rose had prepared.  And did he learn his lesson? NOOOOO. Dummy did it again.  Leaving behind the mother of his children to go it alone with all 4 of his kids.  Thank goodness he was not an integral part of the story line. I get so disgusted with these Sims sometimes. But what can you do?

The next day after Akito’s apparent suicide, Rose took the 4 kids and the 2 animals for a day trip.  All of the kids took vacation days from school so they could go.  Rose told them to learn to fish so they did, while she was trying to wait for the Lemon tree to produce a harvest. That’s all she needs of the common base game plants is the lemon tree.  It never did grow anything. Dumb tree.

Once they got home, it was Daisy’s birthday, so Rose made a cake and Daisy became a teen. I loved her hair, so left it, and just gave her some make up and changed her clothes to her signature color of white with yellow accents. (I had it in my head that her color was yellow, so this was a struggle to fit her with all white, so there is more yellow than just accents in some of the outfits.)

The first thing Daisy does when becoming a teen is invite her first friend, Stewart Fyres, out on a date and advance the friendship to something more.  He was a little hesitant at first, but Daisy won him over to her side and they shared their first kiss and she gave him a promise ring to seal the deal.  He will be her husband and the father of her babies whether he likes it or not.

Daisy is going to be a Friend of the World and join the political career so she needs to start campaigning now by meeting people.  She also needs to keep in mind that she will inherit the farm and must make friends with the residents of that farm, such as the bees. But as a teen, emotional control is so hard and so a quick jog around the block might help her when she is despondent due to those damn teen phases.

Akito came to visit. And he was acting a bit weird in front of the mirror, (which might have had something to do with having both animals taken away for being neglected, as he was the only one who really tried with them, and once he was gone, the animals were forgotten) before he went to play on the computer a bit. Then Rose woke up and saw him and snagged him for a little fun… safe fun, thank you very much!

Progress report on the twins, Thorne and Lily. They are teens.  I have done very little to control these two, as well as Basil.  They have not progressed past a B in high school and they won’t because they haven’t skilled up anything to level 3 and I am not working with them, at all.  Thorne is Squeamish and Good and his aspiration is Angling Ace while Lily got Genius and Geek and an aspiration of Serial Romantic.

Rose refused to feed the Cowplant after it ate Akito.  But because it is part of the requirements to take care of two Cowplants, Rose got another one.

Daisy has joined the scouts and is working on getting her badges done.  Here she is talking with her mother, Rose.  Just earning those social badges… I guess she thought any social interaction would work, as she decided to mess around with Stewart in her mom’s bed!  (They got stuck in there and I couldn’t get the really good pictures because I had to get out of the game to reset them. Dammit)

Basil aged up to a teen.  I didn’t give him a makeover because… well… why? I am not controlling him at all.  In fact, I was trying to find Rose, who was out watering her Garden and I ran across Basil being eaten by the new Cowplant.  You know, if he dies because he does it again, I ain’t saving him.  He is kid number 4 and I only had to have 2 so I have no sympathy for him if he dies like his dad. Stupid idiot!  Basil is a Goofball and Foodie with an aspiration of The Curator.

That is it for this update.  Where we stand with Rose right now is:

She has finished her Aspiration of Freelance Botanist, had her 2 kids plus an extra 2, had a dog and a cat (removed by Animal Control for neglect), has cared for 2 Cowplants, maxed out her relationship with the bees, reached level 10 in gardening, and is levels 9 (cooking), 9 (parenting), and 5 (handiness).  Her current traits are Ambitious, Loves the Outdoors, Vegetarian, Collector, Super Green Thumb, Naturalist.

She has to finish finding all of the base game plants and she is just a couple of hours away from reaching the top of the gardening career.
