Round 1: Mole (Season 1: Fall)

Mole Household: 

John Mole: Popularity/Pleasure  |  LTW: Become a City Planner |  First Wishes: Have a Party, Play with Pauline (Aspir), Be Friends with Pauling (Aspir), Go Swimming  |  First Fulfilled: Go Swimming


John's initial wish is to go swimming.  Since he has a swimming pool this is quickly met with a nice belly flop....err....fresh dip in the pool.

Then John wants to throw a party.  He is interested in dating, but doesn't have too many people he is actually interested in.  He invites over everyone he has a decent relationship with and most of them come.

He dances with his crush Sharon Wirth, however, she is a Romance sim and he knows she's not really good for him.

During her update, John met Natasha Una and they become best friends, fulfilling wishes for him.

Then, as has become very custom for that first night, John get invited to an outing by Hannah Bell.  She must be some sort of community out reach person since the last two houses have received her invite.

There are a lot of town sims there that night and John tried to meet most of them.  He does want to have a million friends, that's what popularity sims want. Of all the gitls he met, however, no one is very attractive to him.

Then the drama from the last house spills into this one.  No one is upset about any sort of cheating, but the father/son relationship between Luis and Victor is so damaged they just start slapping each other right at the bar.

John doesn't stay around much after that and goes home to read about Tinkering, his hobby preference of choice.

He manages to get a job in Architecture, you wouldn't think there would be very many openings since it seems a popular career choice around here, but he has a wish for a logic skill point so a chess board is installed near the pool.

John really wants to make friends and best friends with everyone so he is thrilled when Tara Kat becomes another best friend.

To keep up on wishes and giving him people to get to know John starts meeting nearly anyone who will walk by.  Especially if it's a woman.  However, John isn't really picky, he'll be friends with anybody.

Meeting new people is one of John's favorite past times and there are a lot of people in the world to meet.

Throwing parties is a daily wish and he takes a lot of time influencing people to talk with and interact with each other.  Maybe he can get Victor and Luis over and have them talk.

Sharon would very much like to make John one of her lovers and leaps into his arms.  He does like her but knows it isn't forever.

Still, the heart wants what it wants and he is now in love with her.  No additional wishes roll up, however, so Sharon is left wanting....until we get to her house I'm sure.

We didn't take many pictures throughout the days as most days were the same.  John got up and cleaned up a bit, maybe took a bath, and went to work.  He would then come home, throw a party, get the guest talking, serve food and clean up, take a bath and go to bed.  Wake up, rinse and repeat.  On the last day John almost didn't make his 5 wishes as someone was causing many relationship points in loss at the party, I THINK it was Jason Cleveland but I'm not 100% sure. So the final party of the week wasn't fun, and he had to quickly make friends with someone.  He made it, but just barely.



John: Besides Natasha Una he has to be the easiest sim to earn wishes for.  He could almost border on boring being so clock work but there is something nice about playing him.  I do have him on a quest to meet as many women as possible to try and find a non-married 2-bolt couple.  Time will tell if I am successful.
Ending Wishes: Meet Someone New, Gain a Skill Point, Be Friends with Meredith, Buy a Bar

Round 1: Aspir (Season 1: Fall)

Aspir Household: 

Luis Aspir: Knowledge/Family  |  LTW: Become a City Planner |  First Wishes: Get a Grandchild, Relative Get Married, Relative Gets Engaged, Get a job in the Medicine Career  |  First Fulfilled: Play a Computer Game

Elizabeth Aspir: Fortune/Knowledge  |  LTW: Become Head of SCIA  |  First Wishes: Earn $100, Meet Someone New, Talk, Hire a Maid |  First Fulfilled: Talk (to Victor)

Victor Aspir: Family/Romance  |  LTW: Become Head of SCIA  |  First Wishes: Play With, Entertain, Reach Charisma Level 1, Tell An Inside Joke |  First Fulfilled: Entertain (with Elizabeth)

Pauline Aspir: Toddler  |  First Wishes: Learn to Walk, Be Played with by Elizabeth, Get Potty Trained, Learn to Talk |  First Fulfilled: Be Played with by Elizabeth (Aspir)


When we first open this lot everyone, except Luis, has pretty easy quick wishes to fulfill.  Elizabeth and Victor roll many wishes for each other and end up WooHooing withing the first couple of hours we are in this house.  It seems they are very much in love.

Victor then takes time to work on teaching his daughter to talk.  Her first word is chair, but they do not manage to finish learning this before Pauline needs a nap.

The welcome wagon comes by and meeting new people wishes get met.  We also see a very pregnant Opal Contrary who we found out was pregnant right at the end of their house.

Luis's wishes were unreachable and not going away, so we took him off lot to the Tinkering Hobby location "Will's Garage" to see if his wishes would mix up.

They did some, but not very much and nothing he could accomplish here so he had a quick conversation with the pretty maid at the garage and went home.

Once Pauline was up from her nap Luis, the very doting grandfather he is, helped work on potty training with Pauline.

Then starts the beginning of a very strange cycle of events.  First, Luis's only accomplishable wish  was to slow dance with a sim.  Me, TOTALLY forgetting that it's a romantic interaction, has him slow dance with the only woman he has a decent relationship with....his daughter in law.  We quickly learn that Elizabeth falls in love SUPER easy.  She's actually already been in love once before in this blog. (Technically we don't see her in love, but by the end of the update she is.)  So she is now in love with both men in this house, and they both in turn are in love with her.

Hannah Bell, who is friends with the family and who's update we will be at in a few more houses, calls and invites the family down town.  Since in Megalahood we ALWAYS accept these invitations we go to the favorite first outing spot, Lucky Shack Cards and Drink.

All sorts of people are there, including Sharon Wirth who's update isn't too far from now either.  There are also a surprising amount of teens here.

When the family returns Luis wishes to smuttle dance, so he does in the front yard.

Since his sleep schedule is a little erratic as well, when Pauline gets up he feeds her smart milk and she learns how to walk.

Victor then takes over and works more on potty training, which she does eventually learn.  It takes a couple more sessions.

Victor being the Family/Romance sim he is wishes to do things with his wife often.  They seem lucky as Risky hasn't kicked in yet, but they have WooHooed quite a few times.

Luis has a sudden desire to play the piano, so I let him and wow he is pretty good.  He does have high creativity skills, so that's why, but it's cool to hear it played so well.

He also, finally, starts wishing to work on the car sitting in the drive way.  I really hope he will keep wishing for it so it can get done.  I've never finished a car in the game.

Now, multiple days into play the drama begins.  Victor and Elizabeth are on a date, and Luis, going to fulfill a wish of some sort gets mad that Victor is cheating with Elizabeth.  Much slapping ensues, and it happens about 3 or 4 times.  Their relationship is GONE.

However it's time for Pauline's birthday so a cake is purchased and Elizabeth takes her little girl to blow out the candles.

Pauling grows up very well having learned all her major toddler skills.  She is very cute and I hope she will do ok with the fighting that is suddenly occurring in this house.

She is a VERY creative little girl and will spend hours drawing at the table.

She also loves her family very much.  She runs out to great both parents as they come home from work and she is best friends with her mom.

She does need other friends, though, so she starts greeting passer-bys hoping to find some other school kids to be friends with.

After everyone is asleep in the main house Luis comes over and tucks Pauline into her new big girl bed.  He doesn't spend a ton of time in the main house right now.

After her first day of school Pauline asks her mom for help with her homework and they finish it quickly while working together.  Elizabeth is a really good mother to Pauline.

A large gathering of friends was had and Luis made an appearance and ate at the table as though nothing was wrong.  It seems this family wants to maintain appearances.

Later on he retires to his renovated garage and learns some skills. He works on Cooking and Charisma a lot.

Pauline watches movies when she has the time but is really more interested in Cuisine like her dad.

On our last day with the house Luis has studied up a lot on cooking and really wants to win a Cooking Contest, so he travel to a main lot in one of the hoods that has a Cook Off location.

He prepared his own chili, which he adapted himself and is very proud of.  It was an intense competition but in the end Luis won the blue ribbon!



Luis: Luis's had off and on days of meeting a lot of wishes until the end of the week when he started to really wish for skills.  After that started it was easy to get him done with 5 a day.  The dance thing was a complete accident because I really didn't remember it making them fall in love but he is now very angry and both Victor and Elizabeth.  He did want to study anger management at some point, which helped, and he's no longer in love with Elizabeth so my hope is time will help to heal their relationship.  Hopefully before he dies.
Ending Wishes: Gain a Skill Point, Reach Cooking 7, Learn How to Make Mac and Cheese (Locked), See a Ghost

Elizabeth: Early on she was very simple.  Wanted to do things with her husband and earn money.  Towards the middle/end of the week she started wishing for very long term wishes or for things that were unable to be done yet.  It became very hard to get her wishes met, and one day it didn't happen at all.  Leaving the lot didn't help either.  Finally the last day she mixed up her wishes for things that were doable.
Ending Wishes: Gain a Cleaning Skill Point, Go to Work, Be Saved From Death, Get a Bronze Toy Making Talent Badge (Locked)

Victor:: Also started out the first couple of days easy, and then go super hard.  Wanted to see ghosts and have a baby.  Things that couldn't be done in a day.  Could usually get a couple but wasn't reaching 5 very often.  He held a wish for a mountain vacation for days, so finally one has been scheduled.  They leave at the very beginning of next round. The final day all he wanted was to quit his job, which he had FINALLY found in Intelligence, but we granted it.  It is wishes after all.
Ending Wishes: Go on Vacation, Play with Pauline, Ask Sim on Date, Go on Mountain Vacation (Locked)

Pauline::  The easiest sim to get wishes for throughout the week.  As a toddler she wanted normal things, mostly skills and interactions with her mom.  Hit a bit of a slump when she wanted school related things that she couldn't do yet, but finished strong.
Ending Wishes: Be Friends with Vivian (Cho-Riley), Be Swung Around, Get an A+ (Locked), Gain a Skill Point
