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
