Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 15: Carr 1 Family  
And so begins Round 15!

Previously on the Carr 1s, Justine became an adult and finally gets her first kiss. Stuart got engaged to Marsha and eventually they get married. Connor dates Hikari, who is going steady with Simon Rossiter. And gets his first kiss with Hikari. Natalya became a teen and chose popularity as her aspiration...but so far, her mom Auralee is her only friend. Then she took up drinking. Devon started going steady with Maxwell Hartford. Joe started haunting. Elke and her husband Ricky came to visit, but Ricky then flirted with Marjorie Rossiter, also visiting. Thus all of Elke's little siblings are super mad at Ricky. Stuart got fired. Justine moved out. And a burglar came and got away.

That's enough, huh?

Marsha Carr, knowledge sim, LTW: become chief of staff, 9 neat, 2 shy, 6 active, 3 serious, 5 nice, OTH: science
Stuart Carr, popularity sim, LTW: become the law, 8 neat, 5 outgoing, 9 active, 3, serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports
Natalya Carr, teen, popularity sim, LTW: have 20 simultaneous best f5 neat, 5 outgoing, 3 lazy, 7 playful, 4 grouchy, OTH: games

I will forewarn you...I seem to have lost some critical pictures. But I'll tell you what I remember.

Auralee, who is secondary knowledge, wants to be a vampire.

Also Auralee still has the LTW to marry of 6 children.

Jules, Elke, Zeb, Stuart, Jake, and Bishop...I think that was 6! She remembers them all, but somehow did not get her LTW!

A lot of illness in the house.

Devon wants to see the ghost of Michael. Why? I still haven't figured out.

Marsha also wants to be a vampire.

Oh and she's promoted.

As is Bishop, who always bring Jake home from work.

Melissa Fancey comes over to start trouble. But Stuart has a desire to apologize, so he invites her in. I don't remember what their problem was.

They are no longer enemies. The apology worked.


BOO! And another promotion!

Natalya bonds with her friend Chandler over games.

Then Natalya makes more friends and hangs out at the games lot with them.

Auralee hangs out at the music and dance lot...but loses the dance contest.

Another promotion for Stuart...and Jake comes home with him.

Connor needs to work on his 50 first dates, so he calls the matchmaker. Since he's going for quantity over quality, he doesn't spend much.

Not so happy with the first, he goes for a second.

And a third.

Aww, a nice meal with family and friends.

Okay it's about here that I seem not to have any photos. What happened? Auralee died. It was very sad, although there wasn't as much crying as you might think (at least, the sims didn't cry as much as you might think). She didn't get a platinum grave as she wasn't permaplat even though she married of six children. Totally cheated, she was.

Then life goes on and apparently I re-start taking pictures.

Good job Marsha!

And a promotion...but still angry about last round's robbery.

Birthday time again!

Devon as an adult.

Connor's turn (after work, thus the clothes and hair)

Connor as an adult...I see a shopping trip is in order.

A promotion and all that.

Successful party...Max got to take a bath too.

I like how they can tell Devon is gay and will be looking to "join" not "marry." Not sure if Maxwell will be rich when he moves in with Devon though. Not sure how long Max has until he's an adult.

Connor and Devon move out. They'll share a house for the time being. We'll see them again in Round 16.

This leaves only Natalya, Stuart, and Marsha in the house.

Ooo, but someone else will be here soon.

Remember this house started out sorta cursed...I really don't like how hungry Marsha is. She might get her wish about being saved from death.

A nice meal with family, friends and a burglar? Perhaps that is who took off with your pictures? ^_^

Also, the "marry off six children" and "golden anniversary" LTWs are so unreliable that I just use the Lot Debugger to set the permaplat flag when they fail.

The burglar was one of the dates from the matchmaker!

And maybe I should get Lot Debugger...but I'm not keeping score, so it doesn't matter so much.

Haha, holy crap, Connor's third date looks like a streetwalker!!! I actually laughed out loud at that picture. Too funny, especially since she's like three feet taller than him in those hooker boots!

Man, I hope the curse is over...Marsha better sit on her duff and eat loads of food. I wouldn't take any chances in that house!

And poor Auralee. She's been around so long. :( I think I'll really miss seeing her around, and I think Grimmy owes her some mega-compensation for cheating her out of perma-plat.

Also, random, don't you HATE it when sims bring the same person home from work every single day? Jiro Tanaka does that to me. -.-

Addendum to my previous comment...
The same thing that happened to Auralee just happened to my Caitlin Vinci. Three of her children (Silvio, Conor, and Liam) graduated university, and when I loaded their lot, she wasn't perma-plat. Sigh.

It's pretty weird there without Auralee! It's weird losing some of my original sims.

And yeah...once a week should be enough, I'd think.

If I were you, I would still count Auralee's LTW as being fulfilled, seems like a definite glitch to me. It'll be interesting to see Connor and Devon in their own place, and probably very entertaining. I can't wait to see the new baby :)
Rachelreksims on June 11th, 2010 03:07 am (UTC)
Since I'm not keeping score, it's not so important...but for my own purposes, it's fulfilled! I worked too hard at that.

Sorry about the lost LTW! It's sad to see Auralee go, she's been around FOREVER! Did she ever stop dreaming about her first husband?
Rachelreksims on August 26th, 2010 03:03 am (UTC)
She did...it took several years though!
