Proud of Darkness, Chapter 15

Vanity starts the second unintentional fire.

-50 points, thanks Vanity.

But just the one fire – and she picked up a death metal and a new gnome.  Otherwise, just a bunch of crap.

The living room will get a little change – mainly the coffee table is getting down-sized to a little corner table for the game box and Lin-Z.

Vanity destroyed the dollhouse for fun today.  She is not tense or angry.  She is confident.

Instead of going to school, Avarice is reading about vampires.  Well, she will go to school, but she will be late.


An hour after Bubalus died, Vanity gets the message that he needs to be fed.  Really great EA, really great.

Seriously?  They won’t give her metals or crystals, but they finally let her take their DNA.  For once, Trisha actually agreed to something Vanity asked.  This is actually the first time anyone let her have their DNA at work.

And they are still willing to test her serums.  I think they don’t quite have their priorities straight.

Vanity has a rough day but earns a promotion to level 6, Ufologist.

Vanity decides that maybe she should feed the piranha since they let the Bubalus die of starvation.

Treasure tests out the play action – it doesn’t look like the children can accidentally fall in and die.  Shame.

Treasure is also having a hard day.  I am going to have to lock the kids in a room together in order to get them to socialize.

Vanity decides it is time to end her relationship with Ryan.  She makes her an enemy but isn’t successful in pushing her into have a heart attack.  Ryan was enraged for several hours and then she wasn’t.

One last fight…

One last drink…

And Ryan leaves for what may be the last time.

Vanity tries but she just can’t seem to harden her heart.

There goes Yuki, sucking up.

Vanity comes home from work to find a random toddler standing out front all alone.  Okay, we’ll play along.

She escaped from Vanity’s clutches.  She was fussy or clingy based upon her actions so good riddance.  I believe her name was Shaina.  I am sure we will come across her again since she and Vanity are now acquaintances. {and she poofed}

Treasure is wondering about eating dirt and Vanity told her to go ahead and eat dirt.  Sounds like fun.

Avarice made it to Master Vampire which is high enough to get the Sun Resistance – Perfect Sun Resistance (3 levels).  She also picked up Garlic Immunity, Vampire Creation, Detect Personality, Bat Form, and Occult Master.  Her weaknesses are Sleep of the Undead and Nightmarish Sleep (2 levels).  She won’t worry about becoming a Grand Master – that is Vanity – until it happens through the course of regular activities.  She will be making a vampire “family” and will pick up the rest of her points there.

Vanity is making treats for the cats, and they are patiently waiting.

Turtle gets his treat first.  These are age-up treats so Turtle becomes an elder cat.  They are all so needy, and the house is full and I need it to be emptier.  Catastrophy won’t be aged up yet as he is younger than Turtle and there needs to be an age difference between them so they don’t die at the same time.

It is the weekend and the kids are locked in the attic.  Now they have to socialize with each other.  They have everything they need and I can see how the attic accommodations work out.  They will be let out Monday morning so that they can go to school.

Since it is the weekend, Vanity and Avarice order in their food on Saturday.

The kids have the tables set up for cards and llamas, plus I added sketchpads for when they are older, plus tablets for using now, and a bookcase, chess table, and trashcan.

Avarice is trolling the forums to build her mischief.

Catastrophy is so cute!

This looks so familiar.  And they are meowing at her.

Not getting any attention from Avarice they all went to find Vanity.

Avarice farted, which was a gamble, and she lost.  This happens a lot.

And to top if all off, now she is sick.

Avarice is looking for love so she makes an offering.  She isn’t really looking for love yet, I am just a little bored and wanted to do something while I wait for the kids to grow up.  Avarice doesn’t need to find love until she is older – she is still a teen even though she doesn’t look like it.

In return, she receives the “perfect flirt”, which is only good for four hours.

Turtle is the first cat to get sick – Magmafied Organs, which is treated with a shot.  Turtle is actually not a cute cat, but he is ugly in a cute way.

With the perfect flirt in mind, the entire family heads down the pool so Avarice can meet a boy.  Only there are no teens that show up, only adults and elders.  So that is a waste of time.  Although, Vanity and Avarice do get a bite to eat while they are out, so maybe not a complete waste of time.

When they get back to the house, it is time for Larceny to have his birthday cake.


Larceny gets Vlad’s nose and Vanity’s eyes.  He rolls Gloomy and Freelance Botanist.  Gloomy gives him +5 which cancels out the -5 he lost for being a Dog Lover, so he is back to 0 points for traits. He spends his first power points on Detect Personality and Bat Form.

The tablets are a hit, Larceny and Treasure have already each claimed one.

Two more days and Vanity will complete Master Vampire.  Today is Monday morning so that will be either Tuesday evening or Wednesday – I can’t remember when the counter has been updating.  Vanity currently has these traits:

  • Evil
  • Genius
  • Jealous
  • Quick Learner
  • Free Services
  • Speed Reader
  • Savant
  • Connections
  • Entrepreneurial
  • Frugal
  • Thrifty
  • Waterproof Sim
  • Cold Acclimation
  • Heat Acclimation
  • Storm Chaser Sim
  • Shameless
  • Observant

While everyone sleeps, or rests, and whatever – several ghosts come out to haunt.  Raven is right on top of it to make sure they don’t get into trouble.

Or, she is preventing Cache from going to bed.  Depends on her mood.

About Teresa 1079 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.
