Round 1: Rutherford (Season 1: Fall)

Rutherford/Weir Household:

Geoff Rutherford: Romance/Popularity  |  LTW: Become Celebrity Chef  |  First Wishes: Meet someone new, WooHoo in Closet, WooHoo, Flirt.  |  Fulfilled first: Meet Someone New

Connor Weir: Family/Fortune  |  LTW: Have 6 Grandchildren  |  Flirt, Gain Cooking/Cleaning Skill, Meet someone New |  Fulfilled first: Gain Cooking Skill


Geoff and Connor were happy for the welcome wagon and random walk by sims.  Geoff especially started liking one girl right away.  I cannot remember her name right the moment but they hit it off well and he used her to get many romantic wishes met.

Pretty soon, before the evening was done she was quite smitten with Geoff and had a big crush on him.

Someone wanted to throw a party....I think it was Geoff and so friends and family were brought over.  Connor was wishing for someone to be romantic with and invited over his highest match, Samantha Cordial.

After just a bit of talking and some flirting they shared their first kiss, fulfilling wishes for them both.  They were now deeply in love.

After that kiss Connor wanted to get married to Samantha.  I thought they were a good match and due to determining if I want to always fulfill this wish or now I decided to make it official.  Samantha moves in and wants to go on vacation, dance/flirt and give a back rub to Connor.  They have a nice little dance.

During the small nuptials happening in one area of the house Geoff also got his first kiss, fulfill a wish in the process.

In yet another room of the house we had another couple autonomously falling in love as well.  Samantha Cordial's twin sister, Kimberly, was causing Carlos Contender to fall in love with her.

Geoff, ever the romance sim, is wanting to make out and woohoo with 3 people, but he only knows one girl so far.  When Elizabeth Aspir came around he met her and they hit it off well.  Elizabeth is actually married and living in Desiderata Valley.

Geoff was invited on an outing, which, of course he took....especially since I accidentally canceled out of one right before, ignoring my own rules.  There he meets a few more girls to start getting a good relationship with for later.

Connor is doing well in his job and brings home Consort Capp.  It's fun to see all these sims interacting together.  Connor wants to be good friends with Consort.

Connor wanted to get a bird cage and then play with a bird, so they got one.  I don't remember what they named him and he didn't stay around very long.  The bird got out, error, caused all kinds of strange problems in the house and ended up getting deleted.

Samantha was busy doing things like skilling, but she also wanted to play and talk with her sister Kimberly a lot.  We hadn't even played these guys yet and Kimberly was suddenly left alone.


Geoff, really wanting a second woohoo/make out invites Elizabeth over and finds she is a willing participate.  They never Woohoo, but have certainly worked the relationship to the point where they will soon I'm sure.


Geoff: Was a little difficult because he wanted to woohoo a lot, but with multiple people.  Just woohoo was easy to reach with his one lover, but he's been working on being loves with more so he can reach those multiple wants.  He spent most of the time wanting 3 Makeouts or Woohoo which haven't been reached yet.
Ending Wishes: WooHoo, WooHoo/Make Out with 3 Different Sims, Flirt

Connor: Started out nice and easy, and then became ANNOYING!  He has had the same 4 wishes for about 3 days.  Nothing seems to change them.  None are things I can do much about either, so he hasn't been making 5 wishes a day.  He usually starts the day wanting to go to work, and then spins into the same 4 wishes.
Ending Wishes: Have a baby, Earn $9000, Be BF with Tyson/Consort

Samantha: A very easy sim to keep happy. She is a knowledge sim and wants to skill skill skill.  She also wants to serve food every morning, and learn to make different foods.  She was the sim who achieved 5 wishes consistently this round.
Ending Wishes: Be saved from death, Reach Creativity level 5, See a ghost, Buy a Bass

Round 1: Goodie (Season 1: Fall)

Goodie Household:

Faith Goodie: Knowledge/Pleasure  |  LTW: Become Criminal Mastermind  |  First Wishes: Give Backrub/Flirt/Dance/Talk with Herbert  |  Fulfilled first: Talk to Herbert

Herbert Goodie: Knowledge/Pleasure  |  LTW: Become Mad Scientist  | First Wishes: Flirt/Give Backrub/Talk/Dance with Faith  |  Fulfilled first: Talk to Faith


Faith and Herbert started out kind of slow.  It was a good thing when the welcome wagon came and they were able to talk to and focus on other sims for awhile.

Faith's Pleasure side showed quickly and she started juggling bottles from the refrigerator.

Someone called and asked if Faith wanted to go on an outing.  Per my own rules she said yes.  They went somewhere downtown...don't remember the exact spot, and she met a lot of new sims.  It was a good outing, but ended quickly because Faith was really tired.

Both Faith and Herbert wished a lot for skills, as they are both Knowledge sims, so they spent a lot of time skilling.  Mostly from the book case currently.  They have both managed to reach level 10 in cooking.

They have a pretty nice little house and a lot of people call them up to talk randomly throughout the day.  Faith has started getting to know many of the sims in Megalahood by answering the phone.

They are always wishing for things together.  There is typically at least one date a day, and they are still very much in love with each other.

Herbert really wanted to win a cooking contest when he got good at cooking, so down to the culinary lot we went and he baked up some....salmon I think, and entered it in.  Luckily he won on the first try!

Back at home the elder acted more like teenagers and had a fun pillow fight.  They might never reach their LTW's, but they are still happy.

Then it was back to more skilling.  If they keep this up they both might reach IW's before they pass on.  Skilling was certainly a much desired goal.

To round off the round Faith also wanted to win a cooking contest, so back to the lot we went.  The same three people entered the contest, and 2 of the 3 made exactly the same dish they did before.  Faith took a page from Herbert's book (cookbook that is ;) ) and made Salmon, which won!


Faith:  Mostly wanted to do things with her husband or skill.  Lots and lots of skilling.  She also wished for friends some.  She was pretty easy to get 5 wishes for each day.  Towards the end starting wanting typically knowledge wants: see ghost, saved from death.
Ending wishes: Reach Max Cuisine Enthusiasm, Blog about Cuisine, Be saved from death, Serve Food

Herbert: Wanted to skill and date.  Every day he wanted a date with Faith...their bed and closet got quite a work out.  :)  Then he wanted to skill, and see a ghost and be saved from death.
Ending wishes: Be saved from death, Serve food, Reach Cleaning level 4, See a ghost.

Round 1: Gavigan (Season 1: Fall)

Gavigan Household:

Mary Gavigan: Family/Popularity  |  LTW: Reach Golden Anniversary  |  First Wishes: Have a Baby, Buy a Bookcase, Gain a cooking/cleaning skills.  |  Fulfilled first: Buy a Bookcase

Nathan Gavigan: Fortune/Knowledge  |  LTW: Become Hall of Famer  | First Wishes: Earn some money, Earn $100, Get Isaiah into Private School, Play with Isaiah  |  Fulfilled first: Play with Isaiah

Isaiah Gavigan: Grow Up (Child)  |  First Wishes: Be friends with Mary (mom), Buy a toy, Obtain a pet, Buy a Lemonade Stand  |  Fulfilled first: Buy a toy

Isaiah and Mary were not very close and trying to get them to talk wasn't working out very well, so they danced.  With some dancing and joking they finally were friends, which fulfilled a wish for him and allowed some wishes to be completed for her as well.

 To try and strengthen family bonds, since no one was really close, they ate dinner together.  Mary had been learning cooking (fulfilling wants along the way.)

When the welcome wagon came along they invited them in and we had Carlos Contender (in the red) and the Goodie's, Faith and Herbert.  I have never played any of these families, so I don't know much about them, but they all came from the Sim Bin I believe (except Carlos).  Mary rolls up and keeps the want to be friends with Carlos for about 3 days in a row.

 Isaiah likes games, and Mary is always rolling up a want to play with her son.  For the first couple of days she's a good family sim, wanting to spend time with her son, teach him to study, play with him excreta.

 Nathan starts off the round with no jobs that fit either his LTW or wishes available, but he started wishing for he begun training to be a hall of famer until he found the athletic job later in the round.

 Once the first couple days of normal wants, were done, Nathan, like a good Fortune sim, rolled up wishes to get a makeover station.

 Then Mary wished for a toy bench, since most of the other wishes for either required a lot more time, such as Isaiah getting an A+ or be best friends with so and so, they got their wishes.  Mary instantly wanted a bronze badge in toy making, which she started, but lost it later in the round so it hasn't been completed yet.

 Likewise, Nathan wished for a bronze cosmetology badge, which he started on, but also lost after this successful makeover to Cleo Shikibu (a resident of Riverblossom Hill.)

 Both Nathan and Isaiah had constant wishes every day to sell lemonade, so they spent a lot of time selling lemonade to each other to get some wishes fulfilled. Nathan is just a big kid at heart.

 Isaiah finally gave his parents a bit of a break and fulfilled their wishes as well as his own when he got an A+.  Isaiah was also a very good student, always rolling up a wish to do homework either right as he got home, or as soon as he fulfilled one other wish.

 One wish that never went away was to Obtain a pet.  It was one of his starting wishes, and rolled up every day, staying all day, so I finally broke down and had the family get Roux from the pound.  Nathan isn't really close to Roux, but they are all glad to have him, and are busy trying to train him.

 Mary started really being controlled by her popularity secondary and threw up wishes nearly every day for a party.  So we threw lots of parties, with the few town members they knew. This day Isaiah and Nathan added to the party by bringing Bottom Summerdream and a friend from work home with them.

Mary also started wishing to do more things with Roux as well.  So she spent her time at home throwing parties and playing with him trying her best to make lots of friends and keep the house clean. Meanwhile to end the fall Nervous Subject ran off with an invisible paper.


Mary:  The first few days were family wants, teach Isaiah to study, play with Isaiah, be best friends with Isaiah, etc.  Never threw wishes for her husband.  Then her pop secondary obviously kicked in and it became, make friends with so and so, throw parties, and once she threw parties she wanted to influence everyone to talk to each other, play with each other, etc.  She also wanted to eat cereal every morning and was by far the easiest to get 5 wishes for each day.
Ending wishes: Be BF with Tara (Kat), Isaiah grows up well, Have a party and Study Fire Safety.

Nathan: Was a pain this round.  He started out wanting to earn money and had tons of buy me buy me wishes.  Then came knowledge skilling wishes, body, charisma, any skill etc.  He also rolled up and usually keeps see a ghost and be saved from death.  Then of course he wanted to sell lots of lemonade.
Ending wishes: Reach Charisma level 5, See a ghost, Be saved from death, Stay home from work

Isaiah: Started with some typical kid wishes, wanting to do things with parents and make friends.  He would not lose the wish for a pet though, so Roux was added, and he wanted to do everything with Roux.  Praise Roux, scold Roux, play with Roux, command Roux to do so and so, etc.
Ending wishes: Reach Creativity level 5, Get A+ report card, Buy a piano, Tell an inside joke
