Sarah happy in her pretty new crib, with her hair now in a braid.

Sarah: "Night-night Ma!"
Alicia: "Night my little princess."
Sarah: "I know you're going to drink silly juice!"

Alicia, even your daughter is aware of your drinking. :nono:

Alicia: "I'm a social drinker! When I drink, I socialise."

Spoiler:
Image
Rolling a wish to collect gemstones, Chester headed to the elixir store to see if they were selling any. No idea why he took Sarah with him, but hey, she's coming along for the ride! The store didn't have any gems, only dust. All Chester did was place Sarah on the floor and leave her there. She was content playing with a toy from her inventory.

Image
Chester: "I don't care if you want to date me, Janet Pok, I'm a happily married man!"

This was the first of many calls for dates. He doesn't get wishes to go on them, so the calls get the same response.

Image
Sarah: "There is a bunny behind me, isn't there?"
Sarah: "Is there?"
Sarah: "I did have a bunny."

No reason for this snap, it was just adorable!

Image
The Snowes got a new Claw Machine, and Sarah certainly benefited, she had loads of sheep toys to play with! Jareth has one. Between them, Alicia and Chester must have won at at least half the Scary Bears. Still no signs of any gems yet though. I will find them! :fisty:

Image
Alicia: "Mixing batter in a bowl. Hope they don't eat them whole. Cookies served up warm on a plate. They'll be the best they ever ate."

Alicia really likes baking cookies. If she's not drinking at the bar, or socialising with her kids, she's baking cookies.

Image

Do I miss the bench sleeping, dumpster diving, food foraging hobo? :yes:

She has become a good mother though.

Image
:jawdrop: Alicia in scrubs!! I have the pic to prove it! She is in her work uniform, and...

Image
She actually went into work! This is groundbreaking! She might actually get promoted. Hopefully the kids won't have to live the hobo life with her, when Chester passes.

Image
Chester: "Make a wish my princess."

:heart:

Image
Chester: "What did you wish for?"
Sarah: "Some of those cookies."

Image
Sarah as a child! She gains Bookworm trait.

As you might have noticed, there are some Hello Kitty items around the house. The kids are that spoilt, the parents are now adding their kids' taste around the house too. When I can find some gems, we'll soon see Jareth's as well.

Image
And she starts baking. :hmm: This is a like mother - like daughter I approve of. I don't want to see Sarah face down in a dumpster.

Image
Sarah: "Mum is really old. Almost as ancient as Dad."
Jareth: "No one is as ancient as dad."
Sarah: "We should throw a party! Bath first."
Jareth: "I'll bath when you keep off my sheep."

A stinky protest. :hmm: Bog of Eternal Stench bath? Nah, the bath was broken, and it got fixed while Jareth was in school.

Image
Alister social drinking! (I love that pairing name. Thanks for that one Snazzle!) This stalker couple has come a long way.

Alicia: "Guess what? I went to work, and actually got promoted!"
Chester: "Congratulations! Remember the good old days when we used to woohoo all the time? What ever stopped that?"
Alicia: "Having the kids."

No bigger "Party's over bro" than having two kids. :rotfl:

Image
A game of chess between mother and daughter!

Image
Alicia and the kids headed out to a fishing spot to do some gem hunting. All they found was a sapphire. Nothing much else. At least they didn't start eating from the bushes!

Image
Jareth: "Hi Bailey!"
Sarah: "Is this where you've been hiding!"
Alicia: "Kids, that is a rock troll."
Jareth: "Same thing."
Alicia: "Good point. I'll give you that slap I owe you soon, Bailey."

Image
Alicia: "Oh my god! I got promoted to paramedic! I'm middle-aged! Got two kids! My husband seems to be immortal! And I keep having dreams about meeting a ghost!"

Today is Alicia's birthday! She is literally on the brink of becoming an adult. No wishes for a party. For a party animal, she hasn't really wished for them at all. And, Chester isn't immortal, Grim Reaper just doesn't seem to want to take his soul.

Image
She just had her family around her. Maybe when she makes more work friends, she might start wishing for parties. I'd love to throw a party.

Image
So that's the ghost Alicia has been dreaming of! I actually wanted that, but she dropped it from the claw. I've seen it twice since, no one seems to claw it.

Ghost: :neener: "You can't claw me! You can't claw me!"
Alicia: "I will claw you, then I will sell you!" :neener:

Image
Sarah really wanted to go to the arboretum, so Chester went along with her. She might as well spend as much time with him as she possibly can. They didn't find anything. Chester came out with an impressed moodlet.

Image
You know how your kid wants a pet, and you end up caring for it? Yeah.

Chester: "Sarah, are you going to come out and feed your bees?"
Chester: "..."
Chester: "SARAH?!"
Chester: "Oh, I give up..."

Image
Chester started to enjoy the simpler things in life, like when his wife was at work and the kids were at school, he would watch cooking shows all day.

Image
Just when you think the Twilight jokes will stop, the kids bring home Gator Wolff. :hmm: A kid that should be a teen or almost young adult by now, but is still somehow a child, following children home? :shifty: Now, what could I possibly do with that? :lol: If he's imprinted, I'm smacking him with a newspaper.

He also tried to rip up the doormat, and Sarah had to yell at him.

Image
Sarah! Stop encouraging him! It's bad enough you've got a Bella-Sue related to you, you don't need a Creepy Wolf stalking you either!

Me too! I hope he stays around long enough to see the kids all grown up. Hopefully there is a wish to make his ghost playable, then he'll be around for a long time to come. Usually I don't take much notices of wishes unless they dovetail with what I want them to do, so I don't know. After 3 years of play, I'm still learning new things about their wishes.

little wishacy tip for you ......
If she rolls a wish to cook a meal using fish ........ save it and use it to make ambrosia ^^

and there is the Oh My Ghost opportunity ... that will come eventually if his grave is in the garden :wink:

but if you have been reading Rainbow Babies - you will see they can carry on with their relationship even if he is a ghost :lol:

I know that about ghosts and their relationships. I started out playing the Goths, and always keep graves on the home lot. Unless they are zombies or paparazzi, then I dump them off at the communal graveyard.

Ooo! I might make ambrosia for him. I didn't think I could do that in this challenge. I'll keep them together. :thup:

Re: Alicia Snowe: The Sliding Doors - Door 1- Update 7 - 7/1

Postby Nevermore » October 7th, 2017, 1:00 am

Image
It's Jareth's birthday! He is now a teen, ready to date, rebel and start learning the guitar! He gained the Childish trait.

Jareth didn't have a party, or get a cake. Honestly, I forgot that it was his birthday, and he aged up about a minute after I started playing.

Not a lot happened for the Snowes. For Alicia, she spent most of her time either working or reading research journals, or at the chess board gaining logic.

Spoiler:
Image
The first thing he did was head to the crane machine. I'm starting to regret placing it in the house, since everyone spends as much time as possible trying to earn prizes. If they're not playing this, they're at the chessboard. He won a teddy bear. The next prize was a sheep, and he dropped it.

Image
Jareth cooked his first meal, Mac and Cheese, and it turned out perfect. Maybe that will be his signature dish, just like Alicia's cookies.

Also, great view of his hair! I'm so glad I downloaded this one. :heart: Looks much better than his childhood mop of curls. Those still suited him, but this is edgy for a future rock star.

Image
Sarah and Jareth enjoying mac 'n' cheese! These two are adorable. I can see so much of Alicia in both of them! (First glimpse of Sarah's new outfit!)

Jareth: "How does it taste?"
Sarah: "..."
She eats some.
Sarah: "Tastes like dancing."

Image
So, Sarah promptly started dancing in the kitchenette! Full view of her new outfit. Sarah is so adorable! She is always doing cute things that I can't help snapping a screenshot of.

Sarah: "Dance magic!"

Image
Another trip to the elixir store. Again there were no gems. She ended up buying a friendship elixir instead. Then she wanted to cut a gem stone. Luckily she still had a sapphire, from the trip she took to the fishing spot with the kids.

Image
The sapphire was made into emerald cut. :hmm: An emerald cut sapphire... so doesn't make sense, but eh... sim logic!

Image
Chester spent his day playing with the claw machine, while the kids were at school, and Alcia was at work. He earned loads of money bags. That bag was round about 2000 simoleons! He managed to claw two more of lesser value, before getting something else....

Image
Gems! They were already cut. He got three of them, but sadly none of them were both diamonds and crystal ball cut. Selling them did get some good money, so it's worth it.

Image
Jareth: "How you turned my world, you precious thing. You starve and near-exhaust me. Everything I've done, I've done for you. I move the stars for no one."

I bought Jareth a guitar! Now he can start practising to gain that skill point he wanted. Maybe the guitar will help him meet girls. He has wishes to meet someone, and that will probably lead to romantic interactions.

Image
Chester: "Alicia, my one, my only, my soulmate. I love you."
Alicia: "I love you too, Chester. I always have."
:heart:

Image
Naturally, they ended up here!

Image
Jareth rolled wishes to gain alchemy skills. It amazes me how wishes dovetail nicely with what I hoped for his life. Now Jareth can create a little magic of his own. He also has the elixir Alicia bought at the store. I think I'll save it for a girl he might like to date.

But what is that? An alchemy station with a background not seen in the Snowe house before. Where is that?

Image
In their new basement! The basement size is exactly the same as the ground floor. I finally got the staircases to snap into place properly.

Image
Both Jareth and Sarah rolled wishes to make friends, so the whole family decided to head to the park, hoping to meet some new sims.

Jareth: "If I meet any girls, I don't know any of you."
Sarah: "I want to play on the swings, and the slide, and the climbing frame!"


Image
Sarah: "I can fly! Soar to the stars!"

Sarah looks so happy and adorable on the swing. Hopefully I'll be able to buy one for their garden. I'd like to do a little landscaping now that they have a little money to play with.

I didn't manage to get a snapshot, but Chester and Alicia managed to get some silver and iron. I might smelt them and sell them too.

Image
Jareth called the only teen girl he knew, I think her name was Miranda, and invited her out. She agreed. In the time it took for her to get to the park, she was a YA. Ah, the curse of sudden ageing strikes again. Just like how Chester suddenly aged up on the journey to the house for a date.

Jareth: "You seem nice, but I only called you for a date."
Miranda: "You invited me out. I'm not coming all this way for nothing."
Jareth: "Then I'm leaving."

I think it was about here Alicia headed to work.

Image
Like mother, like son. Jareth started to eat from bushes! Oh, god, it's genetic! Sarah better keep away from bushes. Side note, that is the exact one Alicia was eating out of when she met Chester! Wow, the bush is still growing, and not gone barren yet all these days later.

Image
Chester: "I feel light headed."
Sarah: "Daddy?"

Image
Sarah: "Daddy, what is happening to you?"
Chester: "Sarah, go home."

Image
Chester: "Please, I beg you, not in front of my daughter."
Grim: "..."

Image
Sarah: "Mr. Grim Reaper, please don't take my daddy's soul..."
Sarah: "Please..."

Image
Sarah was left alone in the small park, with only her father's tombstone. She sobbed for the loss of her dad.

98 days old.

Chester's death really did take me by surprise. I had hoped they'd all have a lovely little family outing. Loads of cute snaps of all the family together. I was literally like this :cry: :cryingeyes: when it happened.

:heart: Yeah, I love her outfit! It's so pretty, and suits her nicely with her pretty princess style.

Image
Another journal to read. I think out of grief, she has turned to work rather than mixing up cocktails. She hardly goes near the bar any more. She is now a trauma surgeon.

Spoiler:
Image
Alicia: "Take that!"
Bailey: "What elixir are you throwing at me?!"

Remember the elixir that Alicia bought a little while back? Jareth can now mix his own, so she received it back to fulfil her next wish.

Image
To talk to Bailey! The elixir didn't remove all of their negative relationship, but got rid of a large chunk of it. Now they can talk without getting aggressive at each other, and Bailey allows her in the house now.

Alicia: "I can't believe Chester is gone! It breaks my heart to see how devastated the kids are."
Bailey: "I have visited his grave. The flowers are beautiful."

Image
Sarah visited Chester's grave to cry. She cried over it a few times.

Sarah: "Daddy, I love you so much! Why did you have to die!?"

Image
This broke my heart. She started playing with one of the sheep toys that Chester had won from the crane machines. Poor little Sarah is so forlorn. :(

Image
When Alicia came back from talking with Bailey, she gave Sarah a hug and sent her off to bed. :cry: So sad.

Image
Alicia: "And poor Sarah was out there the whole time. I worry so much about her. Thank you so much for calling, you have been such a great friend."

Image
Alicia: "Bailey."

That's right. Alicia and Bailey are now friends. Bailey keeps calling to talk, or wanting to hang out. Alicia rolls wishes to talk to her, or become friends with her. Odd how they hated each other when Chester was alive, now they're quickly becoming best friends.

Image
Alicia: "Oh, Chester, why did you have to leave me?"

The grief hit Alicia once again. That's Sarah playing with another toy Chester won from the crane machine. Oh, so many tears to shed!

Image
Jareth found a moonstone! He is getting good at finding them. Two gemstones are spawning near the lot as well, so he is getting a good supply now.

Image
He took it to the elixir store to emerald cut the moonstone. About here he wished for a cutting machine of his own, so I put that in the basement or his little magic grotto.

Image
And the grief hit him. This is the first time I've seen Jareth cry over Chester since he died.

Image
The full moon brought a lot of zombies to the garden, while Alicia and Sarah were trying to play chess. This was the first time Chester's ghost came out of the tombstone! :bounce:

Image
Another birthday I forgot about! I'm not good at remembering their birthdays.

Sarah gained the Hopeless Romantic trait. :jawdrop: She is totally beautiful! I don't know where she got those genes from! She certainly got the best of both Alicia and Chester.

Image
Later that night, Chester came to visit again.

Sarah: "Daddy! I missed you so much!"
Chester: "I miss you too, Princess. You grew up so beautiful. I told you, I'll always be here watching over you."

Nice update! Good use for the Friendship Elixir. :) Sarah turned into a pretty teen. ^^ I wonder why sims miss their dead ones if they can still meet and talk to them (ghosts)? :hmm:

:hmm: I never thought about that. They have stopped weeping over him, since his ghost came out. Sims are funny like that.

The friendship with Bailey was a surprise. I thought they'd hate each other forever.

Alicia: "Why did you have to go?"
Chester: "It was my time."
Alicia: "Speaking of time, how much do we have?"
Chester: "An hour until dawn."
Alicia: "We never did have a first dance..."

Spoiler:
Image
So they got their first dance, even though death had parted them. After they danced, they actually waved to one another, before he turned into a whispy cloud and returned to his grave.

I might just cry.

Image
Gator Wolff followed them home again. He promptly started ripping into this bar stool. Sarah doesn't look amused. (Yay! No human/werewolf romance!) After this, Gator was promptly kicked out. Good! They don't need him wrecking their house.

Image
Sarah decided to curl up with a good book. Good! I'd rather her read than run around with werewolves, especially stalker ones that wreck the furniture.

Image
Jareth: "Hi Jana, I saw you at school today..."

Jareth found a teen girl! Hopefully she won't age up to YA on her way to their date, when he can finally go out with her. I'm starting to worry that he won't be able to get a girlfriend before ageing up.

Image
Jareth and Sarah are good kids. They do their homework together.

Image
Alicia: "I'm worried about you both. You should have dates at your age."
Jareth: "I'm trying. Get off my back!"

Image
Alicia wanted them to go have dates with people their own age. Jareth continued doing his homework, while Sarah sat there reading Commitment Issues. :hmm: Close enough.

Image
Not sure why I snapped this one. Sarah seems to make a habit of napping on her bed rather than sleeping.

Image
Sarah has a wish for a while to buy a Bonehilda Coffin, now they can afford it! Maybe Bonehilda can keep their house clean. :D The Snowes are such slobs.

Image
Alicia is terrified of her. Maybe they will have to let her out when Alicia is at work. :hmm:

Alicia: "THERE IS A WALKING SKELETON IN MY HOUSE!"

Image
Alicia was invited to a party at Bailey's. There she baked cookies for everyone. It wouldn't be a sims party without a call from Grim Reaper. I couldn't snap it in time, but Miriam Hoppcraft passed away right in the middle of the party. Bailey was quite torn up about it.

Image
Alicia visited again the next day.

Bailey: "I might move out. This place is so big, and I'm so lonely. There were good memories, but some bad too. Honestly, I miss the days when you came to stay, and you and Dad were sneaking around. It felt like we were a real family."
Alicia: "You could come live with us. Jareth has moved into the basement, and brews elixirs all hours of the night. Sarah would be more than happy to share her room with you. She would be glad to share her room with her sister. Your father visits sometimes."

I kid you not. Alicia rolled a wish to "move in with Bailey." Could this get any more of a Twilight Parody? Bailey's not having any Mary-Sue Spawns. The Van Goulds have disappeared from Moonlight Falls! :D Their house is empty, and I searched everywhere for them. All gone. No stalker vampires at the door! All we have to do is get rid of the wolf.

Image
Jareth was hard at work, mixing and brewing. If he wasn't wishing to brew elixirs, he wanted to cut gems. I wonder what he is planning. :hmm:

Image
Bailey settled into life with the Snowes, and she got something I've been dying to do since she aged into YA; a makeover! Oddly enough, she is older than Alicia, with only 7 days until elder. It hasn't been that long since Chester died, and Alicia was a YA while Bailey was a teen. The ageing system in Moonlight Falls is seriously trippy.

Using some of the money that Bailey brought to the house, Sarah was able to buy a laptop and start earning the writing points she has been wanting to gain! To celebrate, take it away Sarah!

Spoiler:

Sarah: "Once upon a time there was a boy named Jareth, cursed in the ways of love. A girl whom he had admired once again had graduated high school just before their date begun. Jana may have been the girl he admired, she could no longer be with him. Instead he chose to dive into a dumpster, and found some treasures to bring back to the home."

Jareth found a stereo that came to less than the one they had at home, so that was sold. I've missed this! It's like seeing wild Alicia all over again.

Image
Sarah: "A mother and daughter took to the yellow carriage, to visit Sarah's dearest and oldest friend."

Image
Sarah: "You see, this friend was cursed in the ways of the lycan since birth. Seeing his body warped and his face disfigured was more than her fragile heart could bear. She took him into her arms, unable to handle seeing him this way any longer."

Image
Sarah: "She looked him in the eyes. Her knees buckled, and she was smitten. Gator had admired her for a long time."

Gator: "Sarah, I can't be cured."
Sarah: "I will find a way."

Sarah: "And she meant it."

Image
Sarah: "This sweet tortured boy had her heart, and now her first and most special kiss; the kiss of promise and truest purest love."

Image
Sarah: "Until I can find a way to cure you, how about we go steady?"

Image
Gator: "Sarah, you are all I have ever wanted."

Sarah: "All of Sarah's dreams had come true. She had a family who loved her, her dear departed father was always there watching over her, now she had a love worthy of the story books. There was one last task to be done, before the young lovers could declare their love to the world..."

Image
Sarah: "The following day, Gator came to the home of his beloved, with one question on his lupine lips..."

Gator: "Mrs. Snowe, I have fallen in love with your daughter, would you allow me to date her?"
Alicia: "Gator, you are good kid. As long as she is happy, I approve of you being together."

Sarah: "Though they did not live happily ever after just yet, a cure was in sight, and one day soon, their ever after might just be happy."

Now, I'm going to gag. Too much mush over a werewolf! Oh, come on, Sarah!? A werewolf, seriously? And someone from the Black family parody...

Image
A birthday I remembered! Some last minute tutoring, to make sure I can pick his trait! Jareth has been seriously slacking off from school. :nono: It's bad enough Sarah has gone loopy over a stalker-wolf.

Image
Jareth aged up! He gained the Hot-Headed trait. His LTW is to be a renaissance sim, which could work out nicely. He got a job in the music career, next step; becoming a rock star!

I've been waiting to use this hair and make it blonde since he was little!

Image
A trip to the elixir store got him a few ingredients, and a new alchemy recipe. He met Felicity MacDuff, and hit her with a chat up line.

Jareth: "Hey girl, how about I show you the universe with just one kiss?"
Felicity: "Oh, Jareth..."

Image
They both started really hitting on each other, with a lot of flirting. Finally, the girls are all over him! :bounce:

Image
After she left, he started strumming on his guitar. A few people came to watch, some of them were celebrities, and he gained a few points towards gaining his first star!

Image
Alicia: "You dyed your hair. Wear make up. Spend all night out. Do you have something to tell me, son?"
Jareth: "I do, Mama. I'm not ashamed to admit it, and I think I always knew this about myself. Even when I was a little kid, I knew. I just didn't have a word for it then. Mama, I want to be a rock star."
Alicia: "Thank god!"
Jareth: "What did you think was going on?"
Alicia: "Well son, I though you were going to tell me you wanted to become a sparkle-pire."

It's about here Alicia started getting wishes for grandkids.

Image
Jareth took Felicity out on a date to the restaurant. They ended up making out in the alley behind the building. But the passion didn't end there, in fact...

Image
The date continued in Jareth's basement chamber.

On the bedside table is the very freezer bunny Alicia won for him on La Shove when he was a toddler. :heart: On the other table is a reference to me, can you see it?

Image
Alicia learned a new recipe; fish and chips. I sense a new signature dish. And, Bailey broke the sink. Nice going, Bella-Sue.

Image
Brewing elixirs again. He has two wishes; to make 10 elixirs, and to make 15 elixirs. I want to know what he is planning! :fisty:

I love how the Book of Shadows looks behind him. :heart: Along with the tarot cards on the table.

I'm finally caught up! :bounce:
This is great!

I'm sad to see Chester die, but look at Bailey and Alicia - who would've thought?!

You've got great narration! Sarah and Gator were pretty funny. I was thinking... :fisty: Nev is really fighting this Gator/Sarah love... it must be true love! :lol:
And it was!

Jareth is adorable, and he definitely pulls off the hair! I'm glad he's starting to meet the ladies... only took him getting his hair sorted. :yes:
I'm curious to see what he's up to as well - all those gems and potions :hmm: sounds like a plot is unfolding.

Oh, I did fight it. But Sarah's stubborn. :fisty: :lol:

Chester's death had me in tears. :cry:

So much has happened that I didn't plan. Bailey was certainly one. I'd loved for Alicia to slap her or beat her up.

The ladies are loving Jareth alright. Felicity won't be the first girl he brings back to his chambers. :lol: They can't resist his charms.
I have my hunches what he might be up to, but the Snowes never cease to surprise me.

Jareth: "Wise Orb of Answers, Mama is on my back to do something with my life, what should I do?"

Spoiler:
Image
Jareth: "Order a pizza you say? Eat my feelings..."

Image
Jareth: "You have a two for one coupon?"

Image
Jareth: "Woo! Two for one coupon!!"

Seriously, I have no idea what he asked the orb of answers, since I was controlling Alicia, and had to snap this. Whatever it is, it certainly made Jareth very happy.

Image
Alicia: "I'm getting old..." *glug-glug* "My kids are pretty much grown up." *glug-glug* " I barely see Chester..." *glug-glug* "Screw it, I don't need an excuse to drink... hic~ One more... or five, or ten..."

Alicia's drinking again! At least she is sort of working towards her LTW; to max mixology and own a bar. They can't afford the latter. 7 points for mixology.

Image
*happy squeal* Chester came out the tombstone! I've missed him so much. Why can't I get the Oh My Ghost oppurtinity already?! :fisty: He probably doesn't get much chance to watch Mike Malone in the afterlife. :lol:

Jareth: "Is Gator coming over tomorrow?"
Sarah: "Maybe."
Jareth: "Are you still wanting that elixir?"
Sarah: "Yep."
Jareth: "Good luck."

Is this what he is planning? He doesn't have wishes to mix more elixirs... :hmm:

Image
Gator came over to hang out, still in his wolf form.

Sarah: "Hold still."
She threw the Potent Cure Elixir at his feet.
Gator: "I feel tingly... Sarah, what is happening to me?"
Gator: "Huh..."
Sarah: "How do you feel?"
Gator: "I should go home and lay down..."

Image
Gator is now human! And Sarah is totally into it. Nope, I didn't change his hair. That is his normal style. The other one is for wolf form. They got pretty smoochy for a little while. :yuck:

Tox calendar! :heart: Designed, and created by Cor. I think Tox is probably more interested on the grilled cheeses on the counter, than the smooching teens. :yes:

Image
They had a good little date night. Alicia mixed up some drinks, and they both drank some. Ate some grilled cheeses - Gator cleaned his plate, then picked up Sarah's off the floor! He left the others on the counter, though. :hmm: Then they started dancing! While Bailey stood there watching them all creepy like.

That's right, Bella-Sue, your little parody is over! Gator's not a werewolf any more, and your sparkle-pires are all gone from Moonlight Falls! :celebration:

Image
Jareth got invited to a party at Felicity's house. I have no idea why they're in swimsuits, the MacDuffs don't even have a pool. :?

Jareth: "How about I spend the night..."
Felicity: "Sure..."

You know she's thinking "He's going to stay in my house! *happy squeal*"

Apparently, he didn't do much of a good job because they were no longer romantic interests when he arrived home the next morning. They were friends, but nothing else. I have no idea how that happened.

Image
Bailey got old!

Bailey: "And the werewolf and the vampire were fighting for my soul. To make me immortal, or let me live as human. But there was no going back. My mind was made, and I knew where I wanted to be."
Sarah: "Bailey, that is a terrible story. I've read every book we have, and even I wouldn't read that. And, seriously, have a bath. You stink worse than the grilled cheeses."

Oh my god, the grilled cheeses are still on the counter! And gone bad! The Snowes are slobs! Slobs, I tell you! None of them have that trait. Alicia better head out somewhere, so Bonehilda can clean up.

Image
Alicia headed to La Shove with Bailey. She girlled up some fish and chips. Bailey played with the claw machine, but didn't win anything. (I'm so glad I removed the claw machine from their house!)

Image
Alicia: "Remember when you were younger than me?"
Bailey: "Mhm."
Alicia: "We hated each other so much."
Bailey: "I hated you because I thought you were using my dad. I see how happy you both were."
Alicia: "You're still a Bella-Sue."
Bailey: "You're still an ink stained tramp."
Alicia: "I will hit you."

Image
Sarah is so beautiful! :jawdrop:

She is now a YA. She now has the Family-Oriented trait, and wants to be a World Renowned Surgeon just like Alicia.

Image
Like all Snowes, she left all her life decisions to the Orb of Answers.

Sarah: "Orb of Answers, please tell me, will I ever find true love?"

She didn't roll a wish from it. :) I think the game knows she already has it. Now he's human, Gator's not that bad. No longer shredding the furniture and all that.

Image
Bailey: "WILL YOU STOP CUTTING GEMS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!"
Jareth: "Shut up Bella, go back to dreaming of Sparkle-pires and creeper wolves."
Bailey: "MY NAME IS BAILEY!"

Image
:cry: She still misses her daddy! It's still heart breaking thinking of her as a kid playing with a toy beside the grave. Spending time crying over Chester helped her. She rolled a wish to move in with Gator.

Image
Alicia got old! Seeing her grey haired, and no longer in her bodice and long skirt is so weird to me. She still has her ink, so she's still the Alicia we know and love. And, Gator! His hair was a mess, different random styles for each outfit. Now he has one; Jareth's teen hair. I didn't change his clothes. I had to do a bit of a bedroom shuffle. For some reason, Bailey and Alicia are sharing the double bed. Bailey sleeps on the same side that Chester did. Creepy! Sarah and Gator have to deal with sleeping in separate beds surrounded by Hello Kitty cuteness.

The family gathered to watch their fave show, Mike Malone, to see their favourite toxic green hoppy. :heart:

But where is Jareth?

Image
Meeting his daughter, Jacquelyn.

Seriously, Jacquelyn? :fisty: No idea what her traits are. I was a little too :mutter: over her name.

Did he order pizza? :fisty:

Jacquelyn is a name I would have difficulty spelling. (had to copy and paste it :tongue: ) I wish Sarah could cure Gator from being a werewolf. :sorry:

No he didn't. :fisty: He didn't roll a wish for it.

She did cure him! Gator is fully human. :) Potent Cure Elixir completely cures supernaturals and makes them human. It also requires a ruby gem to make it.

Spoiler:
I got so :fisty: over Jacquelyn, because the game comes up with silly names, and someone I know who is horrible is called Jacqueline, now I'll be thinking of her every time Jareth sees his daughter.

I can't change her name. She doesn't live in the Snowe house. She lives with Felicity.
