The Gang’s All Here

Take Me to the Moon 6.1

Previous Chapter / Next Chapter:

Fiona was throwing a birthday party for Ewan at her place in the city, and Ewan, Zoe, and Fearghus were going to leave for her house as soon as Fearghus came home from school.

But Fearghus’ arrival home was at least 45 minutes away, so…

TS4_x64 2016-01-25 16-49-34-25 TS4_x64 2016-01-25 16-49-51-24

Zoe and Ewan had some making up to do from the night before.  Ewan’s little brother’s wife, Rachel, had flirted with him at the housewarming party, and made Zoe mad.

TS4_x64 2016-01-25 16-33-39-16

TS4_x64 2016-01-25 16-33-51-12

Zoe had given her a piece of her mind, so hopefully Rachel wouldn’t be making the same mistake in the future.

TS4_x64 2016-01-25 16-34-31-40

Zoe had talked with Triple G, Grandma Maddi, the next morning, about what to do to deal with the anger.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 06-11-33-15

She described Rachel’s dress, and her flirting with Ewan, right in front of her, in her own kitchen!

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 06-11-46-33

Nothing a Rage-Fueled Run couldn’t fix.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 06-15-05-62 TS4_x64 2016-01-29 06-16-16-51

And the make-up woohoo was spectacular

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 06-20-28-23

Two Hours Later …

Ewan, Zoe, and Fearghus were first to arrive at Yuki & Fiona’s place, and they chatted with Yuki while other guests arrived.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-23-48-89

Ranen entertained everyone with mind tricks for a while

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-24-06-08

And then, Cassandra Goth, deceased, who was the official entertainment, arrived, but since there was no microphone, or musical instrument, she just periodically jumped out at guests to liven things up.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-26-01-19

Adrianna was pretty close to her own elder birthday.  She and Elizabeth appeared to be getting along well.

Elizabeth was still aggravated with her mom on occasion

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-29-54-61

Or wished she had friends her age at the party to hang out with

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-32-07-41

But deep down, she really liked her mom too

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-26-58-03

Alisa, the mail person, dropped by, and was pretty cheeky towards the birthday boy.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-28-07-54

Alyse Weaver was caught taking selfies.  With a critical eye, of course, given her artistic temperament.TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-29-25-16

The candles were lit, and everyone started to gather around to sing to Ewan.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-30-24-20

In the midst of all the chattering and celebration, Ewan was pensive.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-32-44-94 TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-32-58-69

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-33-14-97

But he finally blew out the candles. TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-33-56-64

His first whims as an elder were to talk with Felicity, and Fiona.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 17-34-50-84

Alyse, Zoe, and Elizabeth hung out in the kitchen, chatting.  Zoe was still not her usual, cheery self.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-47-52-72

And Elise barely spoke to anyone.  Perhaps her disdain stemmed from the fact that no one else wore a costume?

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-49-32-64

Felicity, Ranen, and Desmond Goth (Cassandra and Alexander’s much younger brother), all had an odd spicy reaction to the food, even the fruit and yogurt.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-51-51-54

Ewan and Alyse’s dad chatted

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-53-59-54

and Fearghus got aggravated with Alyse for some unknown reason

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-54-12-91

Whatever it was, Elsa tried to step in and settle it, but Fearghus wasn’t going to listen to her either.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-55-00-63

Cassandra caught up with her littlest brother, while Zoe and Yuki got to know each other a bit.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-56-23-81

“Are you happy with Fiona?” Zoe asked.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-56-30-59

“I am so in love with her,” Yuki replied.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-57-22-29

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-57-38-43

Ewan had a little time with his little brother, Eric, who was a little stressed out about his big brother getting older, or maybe embarrassed by his wife’s flirtation the night before?

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-58-45-54

And as the party wound down, Echo Weaver entertained everyone with stories that were hilarious.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-59-45-10

Soon, she and Fiona had everyone in such a playful mood that death from becoming hysterical was a real risk.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 19-59-56-49

Fearghus finally got over his bad mood and was exchanging funny stories with Echo Weaver, too.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 20-03-07-69 By then, most of the guests had left, and Yuki and Fiona had retired to bed.
TS4_x64 2016-01-29 20-06-10-23

Fearghus helped his dad pick up dishes, and gave him a big hug

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 20-07-46-63

“you all made this the best birthday I could ever wish for,” Ewan said, as they ate another slice of cake.

TS4_x64 2016-01-29 20-13-30-99

But the party continued…

The next afternoon, the family was invited to hang out at the park.  Fearghus invited Alyse but she said she had to run.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-05-49-88

Ewan entertained Elsa, Desmond, Felicity and Zoe with stories

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-07-47-03

While Fearghus, and cousins, and cousins of cousins  tried to figure out exactly  how they were all related.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-09-15-16

Marisa Arias is the daughter of Eric Lewis and Rihanna Arias, granddaughter of Ryleigh Arias Denson, who was Delaney Goth’s best friend. Dennis Tesla is the son of Cacey, Fearghus’ great aunt, and Elizabeth, across from him, is his daughter and Fearghus’ second cousin. Got it?

“So, Marisa, you’re not actually my cousin even though Ashlee is both of our cousins through Uncle Eric and Aunt Rachel.”

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-23-30-67

Marisa, Elizabeth, her dad Dennis, and Fearghus chatted while they ate.  Which was fine, until Fearghus brought up the way Marisa’s mom flirted with his dad at the party.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-23-12-17

What could Marisa say?

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-24-05-26

So they sat in awkward silence for a little while, before it was time to go home.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-24-23-73

The next night, the family was invited out to Ghost Night by Aunt Elise.

When they got there, Elise seemed to be striking a shady deal with this lady, in a dark corner.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-47-43-25

“Yellow Dress Townie in Hat turns out to be secret purveyor of biological weapons,” was the probable headline for the next edition of the Three Rivers Gazette.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-47-57-32

Fearghus and Marisa found something less awkward to do

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-54-31-65

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-55-31-54

Until Fearghus caught view of his developing biceps in his peripheral vision and was compelled to record them for posterity.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-56-13-90

“hmm, not bad,” he thought.  “But needs a little more definition there.”

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-56-38-11

Luckily, Aunt Cacey and Uncle Gavin came out for Ghost Night too

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 20-59-47-19

Fearghus hung around longer than anyone else, just to meet his great aunt and uncle for the first time.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 21-00-51-48

He chatted with his Great Aunt Cacey for a while.  She was quite tense, though.

TS4_x64 2016-01-30 21-01-26-65

When Fearghus got home, his dad was enjoying the surf and the early morning out on the deck

TS4_x64 2016-01-31 08-39-53-54

Fearghus took some sleep replacement potion, and finished up his homework.  After all, he had ambitions to become a doctor, and he knew he needed to work to achieve that dream.

TS4_x64 2016-01-31 08-42-45-74

Gameplay Notes:

  • It’s kind of hard in camera mode, without all the thought bubbles visible to catch exactly what’s going on in a busy room, so I don’t know what Fearghus and Alyse and Elsa’s conversation was about, or why Eric was making the face he was!

    I love watching sims being sims at parties! This post was so much fun.

    Looks like Feargus is really on the make for a girlfriend, or maybe I was just reading that into his thread.

    I just loved seeing all the faces and hairstyles, too. Since I don’t have the game, a lot of the looks are new to me.

  2. Ha, yes, it was great to have a light-hearted post after the last Simdale Valley one. Wasn’t Alyse’s party look fun? I like her hat.

  3. Lexivita says:

    Looks like I’m caught up with the legacy again. I feel bad I didn’t make the voting. But I would have voted for Fearghus, so no harm done I guess. 🙂

    And I totally feel you about the camera mode. Sometimes I even wish there was an option to keep the bubbles in the pictures too. In stead I often take notes as I play so I wont forget what has actually been going on. x’D

  4. Carla says:

    Oh my gosh, I can’t believe Ewan is an elder! I guess there’s not long until Zoe is too, then? Glad they were able to make up after Rachel’s flirtation. I’ve always liked Ewan and Zoe together.

    Has Fearghus got a little thing for Marisa? Seemed like he was checking and double-checking that they weren’t actually related there! And they do seem to get along pretty well.

    • Carla says:

      Also, here you guys are wishing you could include thought bubbles in your pics from Camera Mode, while I go to some lengths in my TS2 game to make sure they never appear! There are some skill bars in a pic in my next update and they are already really annoying me!

  5. maisie says:

    This was a really full post, I can’t believe that Ewan is an elder! But I thought this post was perfect, because as it was his birthday, you can see how the younger generation have really made it their own story. They’re all vibrant, and up to things, and getting into mischief (minus Rachel, flirting! that dress!! I’d be livid too!).

    I think this was a wonderful update, and Fearghus is such a handsome young man, Elsa’s expression toward him at the table is great too. She looks she could handle him and his big personality. Though he does seem to have a hankering for Marisa maybe?

  6. Lexivita, thanks for reading and commenting! I”m glad you’re happy with Fearghus as heir! I take notes too, as I play! I don’t like the thought bubbles in the pictures, but sometimes I miss exactly what’s going on while in camera mode.

    Seems everyone is curious if Fearghus is looking for a girlfriend… and might like Marisa… I forgot to reply about that part to Echoweaver when she first mentioned it. I think you guys are picking up on the fact that I would like Fearghus to have a girlfiriend because it makes me feel more secure going into young adulthood in a legacy. Now that I’ve put aging back on normal, I’d love for him to marry young so he can see his grandkids. I did want to check about Marisa; I didn’t think they were technically related, and they aren’t. It would be kind of fun to marry her in the the family since she’s Ryleigh’s granddaughter and got some of her genes. I’m also keeping my eye on him and Alyse, but so far, although they are best friends, they have a fair amount of conflict and no apparent attraction. Elsa is a good possibility too, although there doesn’t seem to be any interest there either, yet.

    They are going to age a little quicker now than they have been. When they become an elder it doesn’t say how many days left, it says how many days lived. I think it said Ewan lived 193 days so far because he used youth potion like four times and had aging on long for a while. I’ve decided to keep it moving a little quicker though.

    Carla, Ewan made a smooth apology, and after some making up, they were good as new. I like them too! She was more angry at Rachel than Ewan anyway, and I don’t know if you noticed his expression, but he didn’t even flirt back.

    Maisie, I’m glad you liked it ok; I’m trying to keep it moving a little faster but not too hectic. It’s actually been tough to transition to Fearghus and the others in this generation. I have been in a bit of a lull, inspiration-wise, but I think I’m coming out of it. Interesting idea about Elsa! She’s quite spunky.

    Thank you so much, everybody, for reading the story, and commenting. It’s so nice to get feedback and fun to chat about it.

    I’ve noticed that jealous Sims can get jealous if someone they like (even if they’re not romantic interests officially) talks to somebody else! So… maybe Fearghus is fearful if he’s not the center of attention!

    Really great party, and it’s lovely to see everyone together. So glad no one died of hysteria!

    • I’m just starting to find out how the jealous trait impacts them… that’s a great explanation for his tense mood at the party. Me too, about the death from hysteria, someone on a forum had posted that their newlyweds died of hysteria at a wedding party and she was so upset, so when they get Very Playful I worry.
