Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 11: Rossiter 3 Family  
Previously on the Rossiter 3s, Woody  threw a couple successful parties. He had some flirtations with a few women (including SimRachel), but nothing more. And he got a couple promotions.

Woody Rossiter, popularity/family sim, LTW: reach the top of the music career, 6 neat, 3 shy, 6 active, 4 serious, 6 nice, OTH: tinkering

Woody has been promoted! TOC and LTW! And he's now permaplat!

His next LTW is to reach the top of the education career, so he takes a new job.

And immediately after gets a want to reach the top...I think it will be at least a few days of work before that happens.

Woody's friends Andrea and Allyn come over. Andrea immediately starts flirting with him.

And now he's in love!

Allyn is not going to be outdone by Andrea. Woody is quickly in love with Allyn as well.

Next, Andrea's turn.

Hmm...why is Woody going upstairs to relax?


Now everyone is in love.

Awww. What's going on with Andrea?

Yeah, Woody wonders what's going on with Andrea too, so goes downstairs to kiss her. How is that gonna go?

He doesn't get to kiss her, but he flirts with her. When she reciprocates, he gets upset.

What is Allyn's reaction to this?

Yeah she won't be ignored. But not in a Glenn Close sorta way.

Then Woody decides to hold hands with Andrea. AGain, doesn't actually happen.

Interception by Allyn.

Then Woody is horrified by Andrea's flirting. He's quite the tease!

Woody goes back to Allyn. Andrea looks totally love struck.

This is normally more pictures than I'd devote to a friends' visit, but this was just bizarre. From one to another and nobody getting mad or slapping anyone.

Woody was doing well financially and the house was rather cramped, so I did an expansion. I was fairly limited by the size of the lot. But I did okay.

First floor...the whole back part of the house is new, so things aren't as crowded. Also you may notice next the stairs...I bought him a pottery wheel.

Second floor...I made the back room into a den.

I forgot something major when doing my renovation. Can you guess what it is?

A promotion in the new job for Woody.

Evlin comes over, but won't let Woody hug her. And they're really good friends. I have him check out what is wrong.

I never figured out what was wrong, but he did cheer her up and all was better. How cute.


He looks a little sad as he does the frame a picture with hands thing.

How to cheer him up? Throw a party, being careful to only invite one of his loves. He picks Zelda.

The guests arrive.

Smustle in the kitchen while pancakes are  served (it's a morning party)

Did you figure out what I forgot when expanding the house? Does this picture give you a hint?

Woody decides to give away some of his art.

Whistler seems happy about it. Evlin looks a tad jealous.

Not bad, not bad.

Whistler gets re-promoted.

He brings home Mark, so decides to offer him a gift.

No Mark, it's not a baby for you to adopt. It's just a plate.


Hello? Allyn is in the way! I can't get in! Can you move Allyn?

Or maybe Allyn can move herself.

So I started this round thinking "ugh, 5 days of just Woody, this is gonna drag"...HAHA. ABout this point I realized "Hey it's Tuesday!" The round was supposed to end 8 a.m. on Sunday. Maybe when I put him at the pottery wheel and just let him go for hours, time goes by fast. Anyway, to compensate, Woody will get a shortended round next time.

I'm still undecdied if Woody should marry and/or have a baby. He hasn't had any wants in that direction and he seems happy enough, so maybe I'll let him be. Or maybe I'll make him adopt a child in his old age and that child can take over the house.

You can have a lot of fun with a single male - I have had a blast with Tobias. Now his niece moved in with him though. Maybe that could be a solution for Woody too?

Ooo, that is a solution! And I had thought of that when I was reading you and then totally forgot. That is probably what I'll end up doing.

Seems at least some of the women have already accepted him for what he is...

I concur about moving in someone late in life. Of course, that requires him to actually stay alive - not fix electrical equipment when tired, not choke on the swine flu. But usually it works quite well.

That was really bizarre with both Allyn and Andrea and the concurrent romantic interactions. Thank goodness there wasn't a cat fight. So I'm really not sure what you left out in the new house... the window in the bathroom? I'm still rooting for Woody and SimRachel to get together :)
Rachelreksims on July 26th, 2009 04:18 pm (UTC)
I should have added a second bathroom! Which isn't a big deal when it's just Woody, but when he has lots of people over (as he often does), it can be a bit of a nightmare. I may try to figure out where to put one next time...it's an odd shaped lot, so it's hard to work with.

And that Allyn/Andrea thing was bizarre. As for getting him together with SimRachel...we will see. He doesn't seem to have an interest in any one sim for too long.

Awww, I don't have the right EPs. Thanks for finding it for me though!
