Chapter 2.43 bloopers

A few bloopers to tide us all over as I work like mad to get things ready for the next chapter.

Ottawa and Ignacio's chosen convo spot made a lot of people really mad. Seems the sink was dirty and about half the people in the house were desperate to clean it. First one to throw a tantrum was poor little Roger. Pay attention to Roger. He's going to be around a lot. I luvs him.

Then Kristine (You don't have to pay her any actual attention. This will most likely be the only time we ever see her.) comes and pulls such a high pitched whine that Ottawa feels the need to mock her.

In the end Roger, Kristine, Raul, Lottie, Roosevelt, JJ, and Benji (JJ and Benji are Sally and Ottawa's other two boys) all threw routing tantrums in the background of the pics. I loled.

Then Sally started to throw a fit on me. It's about 10pm sims time, and since I'm just in this particular world to shoot I just used maxmotives on everyone and went about my business. Sally, however, was determined that it was her bedtime and nothing would keep her from going to bed. When I forced her to stay and be social for a final shoot she took it out on Layla.

"It's all because YOU are here that I'm not allowed to go to bed! It's my bedtime dammit! And it's MY house!"

"Oh, get over yourself bitch. All you have to do is sit there and talk to me. PFFfft. And it's only your house because my dad ran out. Otherwise this would be MY house."

Sally then stews on this info. Muttering and grumbling.

Ottawa- Geez. What did YOU do?
Layla- I'm simply the star she wishes she could be.
Sally- *grumbling mumbling*

Sally- MY house. MY BED! MY BEDTIME!
Ottawa- You should probably leave her alone. Really. I've seen her in these rages before. She's scary!
Layla- Oh pish. I can show you scary.

Sally- I'm tired! Leave me alone!
Layla- Suck it up.
Sally- I'll hurt you! Just watch!
Layla- You and what thought bubble? I've got 20 pounds on you. Bring it on.

Ottawa- Quit egging her on! You have no idea what she's capable of! And when you all leave she'll just take it out on me!
Sally- *steam pouring from ears. *flame shooting out of nostrils. Shut.Up.Ottawa!
Layla- Oh. I see what you mean. Guess we'll go now so you can deal with her.

I've never seen a sim looks so angry before! It was awesome. Love you Sally dear!

Evil Raul

So in game Raul was really mostly harmless. But when it came to the big parties (and the shooting scene) I needed to stage I decided to take Raul and a few other families and porter them to an empty AP where I could turn off weather and SP and anything else and use it purely for shooting those scenes. Almost the moment I get everyone settled I get this pop up:

If you can't read it, it says Enemies of Raul Guerra beware. There are dark tidings emanating from Raul's home, something might be brewing!

And then Layla gives me face. Great face. It's so awesome when the game decides my currently story line is really the way to go.

Derp Layla

Derp Layla. This was when she was trying to figure out which kid was which. She was so stressed by all the people around her eye had a nervous twitch, just like mine. lol

Buck's run in with Kaity Mattell

Have you read The Mattell Family Challenge? If you haven't you should. A few chapters ago Buck got a cameo appearance as out of character as could be and it was awesome!

She gave him a new outfit and hairstyle and a new attitude to boot. Then... she slapped him. Ha! So this is my commemorative image so I'll never forget just how awesome Buck really is!

Sorry this is a little behind getting published, but I'm a little behind. Ha!

Bloopers for Chapter 2.41

I have a lot more giggle shots saved up, but instead of bombarding you all I weeded through them and decided these are the best. Enjoy.
While trying to get a through the crowd shot of Ignacio and Raul so that I could show that Layla has made things up with Cyrus I paused and got a shot I absolutely did NOT expect. It's completely unusable due to the funny. Check it out:

Cyrus. Oh Cyrus. You big old goob. And see those laugh lines? He's aged up to Adult. :(

It's not funny anymore Cyrus. Now it's just disturbing. What is that face all about anyway?


"What about art? It's awesome! Two thumbs up!"

"The happy is all like, BAM! In your face! I'm a clown! Happy!"

"You get it? You rock it? Yeah!"
 After such a very theatrical set of facials and bodily expression I had to check to see what was going on. This is the "Give inspirational speech" interaction it seems. O_O

Behind him Lottie is totally wanting to steal some of the gems still left lying around.

Ignacio feels it's more appropriate to point and laugh at his daughter while she gets ready to age up.

Poor Tibi. Maybe she remembered what happened at her own party, but she cried over that cake. Bawled. Bless her. (It was the negative check out new object interaction)

"Mommy??? Why you blow out My candles?"

Pose testing booboo. Igancio is all worried about what Layla is doing inside of him, fighting to get out.

Let's hope Mariah looks better than this shall we?

Angry Mariah and Portents of things to come.

Cyrus was really upset that he didn't get any cake. Chick on the left is He and Olivia's oldest daughter Corinne. She's so pretty, and how I finally figured out my genetics settings in SP were right where I wanted them.

10 sim minutes later and he's still sad over not getting any cake. BTW- he and Ignacio? Enemies. They do NOT get along.

Like father, like daughter. Shaka Bra!

Tibi's Prom

So, I love what happened at Tibi's prom as it solved quite a few problems for me. For starters, since I'm jerking around her family a lot I really want her to get a happy ending. The moment she aged up to teen I sent her off to the Matchmaker at the Spa to see what was up, careful to check her gender preference before I sent her. Seeing that she's straight, I went ahead and set it for her to look for a male match. Nothing. Each and every score came up zero. So I checked the female list (since her male number was 8, and her female number was -4. Might as well right?) And again it was 0 for everyone in town. So I just kind of shrugged it off and figured she'd figure it out on her own in school where she's got plenty of friends. Then a few days before Prom our best friend Emily invites Tibi. I'm thinking "That's So Cool! Bestie's to the rescue!" Since Emily is dating Henry (His age is not what it appears in this chapter, he actually aged up a bit ago, but Layla didn't know that so we're leaving it that way) I thought of it only as friends. But once they got to prom together SP wasted not a moment in hooking them up. When I checked Emily's gender preferences she's got the numbers to be Bisexual, but her preference was for women instead of men. And by the end of prom? Tibi's numbers had changed quite a bit. As it gives her happy little moodlets and ensures she'll be happy out of the house I just had to keep it.

They're so cute!

Chapter 2.32- Deleted Scene

 I had this in right after Layla is in her room looking out at the snow (To show the unseemly amount of flowers she has accumulated in there) and thinking of Helen. But the chapter is long and a little unwieldy as it is so it came out. It's not important but it makes me sad cutting it since it has a shot of the blue moon by Misty and a shot also of the purple lights on the house for Tibi. So it's here so that I can still show it all off. Sorry it's out so far behind the chapter it goes with. Life and all that.


          “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” Tiburcia had stuck her tongue out as far as she could without hurting herself.

          “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!” louder this time, as though the snowflakes drifting down would be more likely to drop onto her tongue if she were noisier.

          “Really, Tiburcia,” sighing wearily, Layla chided the girl.




          “Come on, dad! Flip the switch!” Tiburcia yelled, clapping her hands and stomping her feet against the cold.

          Rubbing her neck, Layla sighed heavily again. It had taken the adults all day to string up the lights the girl had picked. And Layla had been extra tired and sore all week. She blamed it on all the extra time she’d had to take tramping around town to find pretties hidden beneath the snow. Snow made everything a lot more difficult. How did her mom and dad make playing in the snow with their kids look so easy? She’d have to call her mom later to ask. It would flatter Helen.




          At last the house was bathed in pink light as Ignacio finally made it to the fuse box and flipped the switch.

          “Yeeeeeeeeeeesssssss!!! It’s wonderful! It’s perfect! I love it I love it I love it!” Tiburcia jumped up and down nearly knocking Layla over. “Sorry, mom.”

          Smiling broadly, she hugged the little girl.

          “It’s alright,” she told her. And really, it was. That reaction made all the extra work worth it.

Chapter 2.30 outtakes

I love the look on everyone's face. They're crowding closer and looking at each other warily. It was almost as if they all expected a melee to break out over the cake.

Layla is seriously concerned about Shad here. It seems popping your knuckles really grosses her out. Ha! It also took this pic to realize that Lottie and Shad's hair is the exact same color. I'll have to fix that next time I'm in since I'm fairly sure they aren't related.

Chapter 2.28 Outtakes

I had both Sally and Layla on OMSPs on the bed to pose them. Unfortunately, the Mourn interaction breaks in between poses. So each time I'd go to change someones pose I had to wait for someone to get finished with a cry. Take a peek:



"My Mother is Dead!!! I'll never be happy again!"

*sniffsniff. "No, no cruel world! You will not overcome me! I will be alright. One day."
"Oh wait. You wanted me to do what? Pose? Really? Oh. Okay."

"Holy crap! You let my Mom Die!!! " (I did, I finally turned aging back on for her. I'd turned it off since she's not in the house. Buck's time is approaching too. Be prepared.)
"I shall overcome. I shall move on and be happy, if the damn simmess would ever let me that is."
And so forth. I love my girls but they were so emotional/hormonal it influenced a lot of what ended up happening.
