The week starts off with Gillian and Maria resenting each other. It’s probably some teen revolt from Maria’s side.
Her grandmother is the only one trying to bring her up, since her own mother is busy courting the ghost of the founder and her father being a heartbroken loner
Maria’s father Anders at least tries to repair his broken heart and dates Izabella Jarnbåge. He dated her before and she’s alright, but him being a Loner who Hates the Outdoors doesn’t really help.
Despite reaching his LTW, Karl, Anders’ father, continues to paint to reach some more goals in life.
At that time it’s really past due to move Towa out. She might even get us some more points on another address. Bye Towa!
Maria has a nature experience when she watches a racoon trying to tip the trash can over
And finally aunt Eva takes the next step with her childhood sweetheart Theodor Minvind and asks him to go steady
They celebrate by having some adult fun
When it’s time for Eva to leave for work, she feels great!
By now we are up to four generations in the Motvalls family tree, whereof only the founder generation are passed away. However, the generation 2 children are really reaching high age by now, so we’ll see how long they will be with us.
The generation 4 heir, Mikael, has a fishing assignment in school, and he actually enjoys spending time on the beach
Anders continues to accept date invites occasionally
He really tries to show an interest, too, but it often gets awkward, like when he asks Lisa Bunch in in her police uniform what she works with
He prefers to sit alone and read a book. He would prefer even more to be indoors reading a book.
Then, late Tuesday evening, we get the message that Karl’s twin Lars passed away. Karl is of course sorry for his brother, but they drifted apart lately, so he’s not torn to pieces by his passing.
The future belongs to the young, and here we see the generation four representatives side by side. They are really different from each other. Maria inherited her mother Towa’s colours and Mikael jas the brown skin of the Motvalls family, which has so far been diluted for each generation. Where his blond hair comes from is still a mystery.
Despite being very old, Karl is in good shape and he is often found outside jogging. Or stalking the representatives of Sim State
Generation 3 spare, Eva, is often neglected, but today we spend some time with her beloved Theodor Minvind
It’s about time to make this serious! Eva proposes to Theodor
He says yes and a wedding party is promptly arranged
But from there the date starts to go downhill
Joel Irskans starts to get cramps – did he get something in his throat?
And he falls down dead on the lawn.
Nevertheless, Eva tries to get hold of Theodor to exchange rings with him
They just stand there looking at each other, while Towa steals the show as usual
Finally everybody leaves, including Theodor, and the wedding is off. Only Eva remains…
Someone: “Hey, Anders, I think you should get to know Towa Minvind, it’s good for your social networking”
Loner Anders: “Ehh... No.”
Next day Eva makes a new try and throws a barbecue wedding party
But it’s another failure when Theodor gets in a fight with one of the guests and the others hate the party and leaves one after another
Anna Motvalls, Karl’s sister, leaves for good
Anna had hoped to see her niece married and does not want to go
And another failed wedding party for Eva…
Eva: “Hey, the party thing might not be for us”
“What do you say, do you want to move in and marry me right now?”
The new Mr Motvalls has an LTW to be a chess champion. He’s a party animal, light sleeper, easily impressed, computer wiz and Lucky. An easy going guy, basically. In Sims 2 terms he would probably be a Pleasure sim.
Theodor is an only child and both his parents are still alive.
Despite everything, Anders has now reached 100.000 aspiration points and we earn 1 legacy point for that.
Karl, the only generation 2 left takes his sister’s death much harder than his twin’s. He’s really sorry for her.
Anders really misses his aunt, too. They had a special connection, both being Loners.
Eva meets up with her mother-in-law downtown. They haven’t met much before. Towa is apparently a celebrity in Sunset Valley
And we end this week with Anders, starting to concentrate on his piano hobby. We hope to collect a few points for that when he reaches his goal of becoming a World Renowned Surgeon.
Next time, we will look in to how Towa handles her new single life (that would be the Towa that was involved in this family, the children's mother, not Theodor's mother)
