Nom de Plume, Chapter 6

Disclaimer:  Not all of the events in this chapter were planned.

Orchid and Nectar are working on their homework together.  One is in a loud phase, the other is in a mean phase, but they still seek each other out.

Alexis is still in her bear phase.

Isabel is in the distant phase and is trying to meditate and pretend she is alone.

As heiress, though, she is beginning to work on repairing items that break.

Mathew is having a mood swing.

Isabel is working some more on relaxing and pretending she doesn’t have a family.

Monday brings more projects.  The kids set up in the yard and work in parallel.

While Isabel sets up in front of the house on the other side, as far away from the family as possible.

It is someone’s birthday – Clarke I believe.  Isabel burned the cake.

Clarke has man-boobs.

So frustrating and overwhelming are the feelings I have with this house.  I have no idea what to do with everyone.  I don’t want to add a bunch of houses, so I send Orchid, Nectar, and Clarke out to learn the pufferfish recipe.  They are the only ones in the house without a cooking skill.

When they get home, Orchid makes the dish.  Now, I should take time to explain my thought at this point.  I figured it would be a random selection on who would die from the poisoning.  So, I did not instruct anyone to eat the pufferfish.  They chose to eat the pufferfish once it was ready.

Clarke is the first to drop.

Followed by Orchid.

Nectar makes sure to get a selfie the moment her twin is dying.

Once she realizes this isn’t a game, she is sad.

So sad that she walks in on Alexis showering.

Salim is the second birthday.  He is an old man now.

An old man that should not woohoo so much.  Bye-bye Salim.

Everything is breaking and everyone is sad, and Grim still has not left.  This was a sign that I missed.

Nectar and Alexis chat.  Both are sad and stressed.

Wait, what?  Who is this?  If you look back to the picture above, Nectar is eating CAKE.  But here she is dead from pufferfish poisoning.  This was NOT planned.

Isabel walks in on Mathew.  They really need to lock the bathroom when they go.

Alexis is cleaning up.  The family is down to Monica, Mathew, Isabel, and Alexis, so everyone has to pitch in.

Wait, what? AGAIN?!?  Isabel, while eating birthday cake, is poisoned by the pufferfish.

Yeah, Mathew.  I am as shocked as you are.

Monica pleads with Grim not to take the heiress.  It doesn’t work.

This means Alexis is now the heiress, assuming she survives the pufferfish revenge.

Oh, and in the “excitement”, Alexis never got a birthday cake.

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
