Take Me to the Moon 6.3

Previous Chapter / Next Chapter:

Fiona and Yuki were settled in their careers, and had been together long enough to know they worked together.  Fiona felt like the time was right for them to officially become a family.

She wasn’t superstitious, but she did wish for luck when she scoped out the tiny, hidden botanical garden where she wanted to make her proposal to Yuki.

Then she brought Yuki to the garden on a date.

Feeling nervous, she fell back on her something she knew Yuki liked, making her laugh.

Then she became suddenly serious.  “I know we’ve talked about one day, but will you marry me this year?”

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-20-26-02

Yuki looked like she was about to cry.

Fiona waited, using every bit of self-control she had, not to list all the reasons why, and to give her time to respond.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-23-57-88

It was worth the wait.

“Yes!” she said, with a look full of conviction, and incredulity at Fiona’s jitters.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-23-44-91

Fiona kissed her, hoping the familiar feeling of her would help her be able to accept this was real.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-27-32-36

Yuki pulled away, and said, “you know, there’s something I want to ask you too.  Let’s have a baby this year, too.”

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-23-53-67

Fiona got up and jumped in the fountain they were sitting at, splashing joyfully in the water.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-31-13-21

Yuki looked around, worried they would be reprimanded.  “Get out of there,” she said to Fiona, laughing.  But pretty quickly, Yuki realized she couldn’t stop Fiona, and she might as well join her.

“If you don’t get out, you’re gonna have more than wet feet,” she laughed, kicking up foam.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-38-11-54

Fiona was doubled over laughing, when someone in a formal dress started to enter the garden.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-38-39-14

Fiona and Yuki retreated to an alcove, and watched as the couple flirted in the garden.

TS4_x64 2016-02-13 07-32-34-25

“You know, it takes longer to have a baby than plan a wedding,” Yuki said.  “Let’s get started.”

Gameplay Notes:

I wasn’t going to play Fiona and Yuki’s household again, but they are more than halfway through young adulthood and MC Command Center hadn’t given them a child or had them marry, so I thought a Valentine’s Day special post was in order.   They are so sweet together- I tried to have Yuki fuss at Fiona about being in the fountain but she wouldn’t do it.

I’m not an expert at Greek & Roman mythology, but roses and myrtle are associated with Venus & Aphrodite, and they were said to have risen out of the sea foam.  Myrtle was a white, sweet flower with evergreen leaves with medicinal qualities, and a potent aphrodisiac.

 Happy Love Day, Simmers!

    I love it! I hope we get to see their baby. I set up a romantic valentine date for Guy and Paolo but as usual Guy had other plans. I’ll post it as soon as I get done with the pictures.

  2. Hi there, meowfaze, I hope you are doing ok! I have my game (MC Command Center) set to pause on active labor so we can see Fiona & Yuki’s baby. Did Guy flake out on Paolo for the romantic date?

    This was so sweet! I’m glad you decided to play them to ensure they took their life down the right path. And I get a preview of Romantic Garden Stuff too.

    I finally bought Get Together! It’s amazing!

  5. Lexivita says:

    Aww, they’re so adorable!
    I haven’t paid much attention to stuff packs that gets shipped out so often. But I just got the movie pack, and love it. Looks like I need to get the last one too! – I’ve started a new save on my desktop while my laptop is down. Can’t manage without sims lol.
    Do you have the mod that allow same sex to try for baby? I bet their child would be so cute 🙂

  6. Hi Lexivita! Yeah, I’m guilty of buying the stuff packs. My husband says if The Sims came out with a stuff pack about ice cubes on the moon, I’d buy it, and he’s right. My sims might need those ice cubes at some point! Yeah, I liked the movie pack a lot, especially the clothes and furnishings, but the movies were neat too. Hope your laptop’s fixed soon!

    I use MC Command Center which has the capability of letting same sex try for baby and get pregnant. From a story perspective, Ranen, who is a scientist, came up with a solution for Fiona a few chapters ago. I’m thinking their child will be cute, too.

    Thanks for commenting!

    Aw, these two are a cute couple! I can’t wait to see them married and as parents. Cool that you’re using mods to make them have a biological child too. I was curious how their genes would mix.

    • 🙂 I think so too, Carla, and I can’t wait to see their child. I’ve played several days ahead so the baby has been conceived but not born yet in the game. I’ve gone back to playing Fearghus of course, and am hoping the game will pause when it is time for the baby to be born… I have it set to pause on active labor. It would be nice to name the baby myself.

    Sooo cute! I love the sweet and sly way that Yuki is looking at Fiona at the fountain. <3 So happy for them and wow I can’t believe how old they are getting! Everyone is growing up. sniff I’m very excited to see them as parents! The fountain proposal was really lovely, very picturesque!

  9. cathytea says:

    How sweet! They’re lovely together! And was that Elder there in the background?

  10. Yes! That was Elder that came in to the garden! Good eye there! But I was so intent on getting what I needed for their date, and engagement, and story, that I didn’t have them get distracted socializing with Elder or the woman he was with. Did you notice also, CT in the black sequin dress?

  11. they are such a sweet couple 🙂 I’m glad you played them and we get to see that 😀 I hope Feraghus finds someone soon too 🙂
