Round 1: Peterson (Season 1: Fall)

Peterson Household

Jessica Peterson: Fortune/Romance  |  LTW: Become Criminal Mastermind  |  First Wishes: Reach Creativity Level 1, Meet Someone New, Earn $100, Entertain  |  First Fulfilled: Earn $100


I found it quite fitting that Jessica would roll the secondary aspiration of Romance, since her story certainly lends itself to her being a bit of a romancer, and she has a hidden romance token apparently.  She wished for a cell phone and to meet people so out she went to get one.

She waiting around to meet people but not many people were there to meet.  She spent the time waiting watching the break dancer do his thing.  It was a slow day at the market, but she really needs to meet people.

Once she was home she received a surprising invite for an outing with Carlos and a group of people.  She was surprised because she was furious at Carlos. He was her ticket out.  He was rich and old.  All she was supposed to have to do was marry him, let him die and get all his money.  Then she could fund her criminal enterprises and get back at her ex for putting her here in the first place.  She went though, might as well get it over with. It wasn't all bad, she always wished to be a DJ and got her chance.


But then it was time.  She took Carlos to the side and told him their engagement was off, their relationship was off, their friendship was off.  Carlos wasn't fully taken a back by this, he figured this would be her reaction, but he had kind of hopped to be wrong about her.

So she went home, with a decent outing under her belt.  She wanted, desperately, to know more people and have some close guys around. Unfortunately, there weren't many around.  She worked with what she had in the trailer park manager, who was pretty cute.

Then she studied for her Slacker job.  She was really trying to break into the crime syndicate in the area but it was proving difficult.  No one really took her seriously, but she had to make money somehow.

Jessica was lonely and struggling to achieve wishes so to see if we could help the gypsy was called and a date was wished for.  It was a somewhat attractive date, 2-bolts, another older gentleman that probably reminded her a bit of Carlos.

He however, was not rich, and so he was kept simply as a person to call and possibly to date when the desire struck her. During the date, however, something happened.  I never saw who, but apparently the gnome in the flowers was stolen.  I would have never noticed except Jessica walked off the screen in the middle of her date, returning a few moments later with this message:

I had NEVER seen this in my game and found it quite interesting.  She has held onto the gnome to keep it from disappearing again for now. Carlos regularly comes by to kick over the trashcan....he didn't like loosing Jessica like that.  I think he wanted to break off the engagement himself, or maybe he's just jealous of Jessica's "relationship" with the manager.

Jessica tried to get to know some of her neighbors a bit more, not that she really expected any of them to have a lot of money, but when she did finally break into the crime world, she would need close friends to help cover for her.  It wasn't going very well though.

Then she made the mistake of flirting with the manage when her gypsy date showed up to hang out with her.  He wasn't happy to find her flirting with another man.  It was not Jessica's season.

So then it was back to skilling, which she started wanting to do randomly at times.  Since the trailer is so small she doesn't have room to buy any skilling objects and just has to do with what she's got.  Cleaning is a popular skill to "study"

Jessica has wanted to WooHoo since the beginning.  The landlord, Christopher, is close to being able to help her with that and now asks to hang out after he's done managing.  So to help him get done faster Jessica starts helping out around the grounds.

It helps and soon Christopher is ready to hang out.  A little more flirting and kissing later and they are finally in a crush status.  Still no WooHoo to be had though. Jessica is thinking of moving, she needs to find a new crime family who might let her in, and she doesn't want to be stuck doing petty crimes forever.  She does want to be rich.


Jessica: She is a pain!  Knowing almost no one and wishing for romantic interaction after romantic interaction was killing me.  I did screw up things with the gypsy date without meaning too, but they are almost friends again. Everyday she looked for a job in Criminal and it never came up.  I was thinking of moving her, with the engagement ended and having no room, it seems like it might be fun.
Ending Wishes: Ask Sim on a Date, Go to Work, Be BFF with Christopher, WooHoo (locked in)

Round 1: Green (Season 1: Fall)

Green Household:

Gabriel Green: Knowledge/Popularity  |  LTW: Become Chief of Staff  |  First Wishes:  Gain a Skill Point, Play with/Flirt wish Samantha (Cordial-Weir), See a Ghost  |  First Fulfilled: Gain a Skill Point

Chastity Gere: Romance/Family  |  LTW: Have 20 Simultaneous Loves  |  First Wishes: Have 2 Loves at Once, Meet Someone New, Make Out/WooHoo with 3 Different Sims  |  First Fulfilled: Meet Someone New


I find it funny that Chastity rolled Family as secondary.  It will be interesting to see how that affects her wishes and reaching her LTW.  Gabriel started out wanting to skill, so we set him to learning Charisma at their bathroom mirror.

Chastity, on the other hand, had a party and invited everyone who passed by to come join them.  She was all about meeting people.  This would have come in handy for gaining those loves, but many of them were already involved.

Carlos Contender called Chastity to go on an outing, and per our on rules she had to go.  She went ahead and brought Gabriel with her to go have some fun. He had brought some family, and his fiance, Jessica.

A quick side note, Carlos brought Jessica for a very good reason.  He was highly interested in Chastity Gere and while he was engaged to Jessica, he had been engaged many times over his life.  He didn't get to be rich and have many women by being stupid.  He had heard the stories about Jessica, and through a very complicated series of agreements, no one would be getting Carlos' money except his daughter.  Carlos had't hidden this fact from Jessica, but he was pretty sure she had agreed to the engagement because she thought he could change his mind. Within ear shot of Jessica Carlos explained some additional details about the arrangement to Chastity.  She could have cared less about the money, being much more interested in having multiple relationships, but Jessica finally understood and she was not happy!

The rest of the outing continued happily and everyone had a good time hanging out and getting to know each other.  Chastity might have enjoyed it a little too much, but no one was too worried.  She didn't anything super crazy.


Gabriel spent a lot of time skilling and working at finding a job in the medical field. He did finally get in and worked very hard to do a good job. It was hard though and the hours made it difficult sometimes.

Gabriel was a pretty happy sim, most of the time, as he wanted to skill a lot.  Pretty typical knowledge sim, although he also wished for a lot of friendships and greeted many people as they went by during his time at home.


Chastity didn't know many guys, and thus was not the happiest of romancers.  She didn't actually know a lot of people at all, so she decided to go to the store, meet some people and get a cell phone.  It was going to become important for her to see who was calling when she started getting her loves.

While out she met a very pale gentleman and found him VERY hot.  Carlos was also there though and since it had been awhile since she'd had some romance fun they shared some time in the changing booth.


The rest of the night, while she hung out at the clothes store Chastity got to know the Count and meets the other guys that come in.  Life is starting to look up for Chastity.

She decided to take the Count home with her, hoping to woo him a little more, and maybe even into her bed, but that didn't happen, yet.  Gabriel was also entertaining and had a bit of a party going.  So far no one interesting for him, except for maybe Chastity...who probably isn't the commitment type.

The season went on with Chastity meeting and getting to know the guys in the hood while Gabriel did the same with the ladies of the hood.  Gabriel's motives might have been different than Chastity, but something had to break up the large amounts of skilling time.

Chastity had a really good relationship with the Count and she thought he might be ready, and really wanted to make out/woohoo with someone so she invited him over to have a date.  It was going really well....

When that blasted cell phone went off with one of her other pursuits called her for an outing downtown.  Our own rules state she has to accept, so she left her date early and headed downtown to a club with a group of people.

It ended up being a great outing, the best it possibly could have been.  She met some new people, got to see Carlos again for awhile, which is always fun and just had a good time.  She was meeting quite a few wants and desires.


When she got back home the Count was still there and while she was busy wooing him closer to her bed (you can barely see them in the upper window making out) her outing companion, who she had really hit it off with, came by with a surprise.

Then Chastity succeeded in fulfilling a long held, and locked in, want. She was super happy.

She got invited and went out on another outing that season.....Chastity is becoming very popular, and it went ok.  It was a big group this time, and Gabriel didn't come with her.

After this outing, however, Chastity rolled up another want.  She had long help the desire to get engaged to Carlos, who was already engaged so he couldn't ask her.  Maybe she started to give up hope, but now....

Yes, the Count had really stolen her heart, and he was even hotter than Carlos, but she also worried he might take an engagement seriously and that scared her.  Carlos was no threat, being a romancer like her.  Gabriel, on the other hand, wasn't having wishes for anyone in particular and spent a lot of time just meeting people, and skilling.

Then he threw a rather random wish, among the desires for BF's, BFF's and high level skill points, to buy something.  Now, I've seen family sims want to buy things for their kids or babies, I've been Knowledge sims want to buy study type items, but never this that I can recall.

Gabriel wanted to make his house more green.  He wished for solar energy.  So that wish was granted.  Then it was back to the same old stuff.  He did suffer a bit of a flame for the new married Samantha Cordial-Weir, she was a friend, so he invited her over.  Nothing major happened, and wishes of her didn't appear as much after that.

Chastity had moved on from the Count....who was in love her already, to her outing fling from before.  I believe this is Rodney, but I'm not 100% sure.


Yes, things with him moved very well.  It might not be Rodney, I think that's actually someone else, but either way, things with him moved along well and Chastity was very happy with the results of this day.


Gabriel: He was very difficult in the ending wanting lots of higher friendships then he had much control over, however, then he hit a skilling streak and became very easy to take care of.  He's working in the medical field and so far doing decently well.  He mostly got 4 or 5 wishes met each day, but he's still holding a bit of a desire for Samantha, although it's lessened.
Ending Wishes: Appreciate Samantha (Weir), Maximize the Logic Skill, Influence Someone to Play With Another Sim, Be Saved From Death.

Chastity: All her romance wishes were very difficult to meet early on.  He only close relationship was Carlos, and he was the other person besides Gabriel she knew.  Once she met the Count (3-bolts) and started getting outing invites her wishes were met much more easily.
Ending Wishes: Meet Someone New, Be BFF/Get Engaged to Rodney (Okuma), Public WooHoo
