“There Goes The Neighborhood”
Warnings: a new NPC, adult/teen relations, PDA, bubble blowing, heart-farting, and an epic smustling finale.
Sunday, Day 14
You might recall that this was once the former residence of the Landgraabs before they built their lakeside mansion. Now 11 Oceanside Blvd is the home of Garden Club founding, pink v-neck wearing, alleged bubble juice pushing, God of the greasy, flowy hair, Rocky Kotsomiti. Rocky is also this season’s host for NPC-PALOOZA! Before the party starts, let’s meet Rocky!
Rocky Kotsomiti is a 5-8-6-3-3 Popularity/Fortune Aries who likes logical chicks in their chonies with 20/20 vision. He’s an entrepreneur, hoping to have at least five businesses — legitimate or not — reach the highest level. However most of his business ideas require the safety of the currently unavailable Business District. Rocky hopes, probably more than any other resident, that architect Fitz Biltmore reaches City Planner in a hurry. Rocky can best be described as a snobby, materialistic, evil, hot-headed, drama king — but no one would ever say that to his face.
Rocky’s partner in crime is a red Doberman by the name of Scarface. Scarface doesn’t like anyone — not even Rocky. That doesn’t matter. Rocky needs a ferocious animal to guard his empire.
Upstairs, in Rocky’s room, is his other prized pet… What? Who wacked Corleone?
*Hastily buys another damn bird*
Meet Corleone II!
Being the founder of the Garden Club, Rocky already has a gold gardening badge. In order to keep up appearances with his new neighbors, Rocky becomes Oceanside’s official gardener.
*There’s no way in hell he’s giving up his Hunka 711 for a gardener’s truck, though!*
Rocky is anxious to get the party started, so let’s do it!
Rocky invites all of the current and former NPCs over to see his new place.
He even invites in the newly-hired paper girl, Honey Burr — after she delivers the paper of course.
*AKA I forgot to wait for Frankie or Calvin to deliver the paper before calling them over so a new NPC was created.*
Honey is a Knowledge Virgo who wants to take the dance world by storm. She likes dressed up, logical chaps that are free from freckles or beauty marks.
And the lovely Rowena De Hommel, who likes to dress like a cat super villain for some reason. Rowena is a Fortune/Romance Scorpio that likes freckly men in their chonies, but it’s a deal-breaker if they wear hats. She’s really into crime (ha! shocker!) and the environment and loves anything that has to do with sports. Some of the party-goers think she bears a striking resemblance to the Oceanside Cat Burglar but Rowena insists it’s just a same-face-template issue.
Ever the thoughtful host, Rocky mixes a pitcher of Woohoo On The Beach for his guests.
Tinkerer Abbot Moulden and Newsie Calvin O’Gill actually agree that reviewer Beckett Graham is a hot piece of ass. What is this world coming to?
Calvin: That Beckett Graham can check out my business any day!
Scarface really does not approve of all of these intruders in his home and continues to howl and growl at them from across the street.
Music & Dancer Edwina Goddard and Mailman Lars Shadow waste no time pawing all over each other.
Abbot and Calvin find a nice spot in the front planter bush to show their love.
Newlywed Nannies Angie and Cindy Lou Killeen slow dance on the side porch.
Newsie Frankie Cloak approves of Scientist Achilles Brook’s new look.
Frankie: Ooooh, It’s so furry…
Simmer down little girl!
Scarface begins his campaign of terrorizing the guests. First up — Honey Burr.
Frankie is back to her old tricks — going back and forth between roommates Achilles and new bakery owner Paragon Barrett.
Kent Healey, owner of Healey Potter, tries his best to become friendly again with driver Noelee Andrews. Noelee is quickly bored. Last NPC-palooza she was all over him. He still can’t figure out what he did wrong?
Rocky ventures outside to meet the infamous Rowena De Hommel. He knows exactly who she is and what she does. Maybe they can figure out a way to bring their two “businesses” together.
Brodie Mason, owner of the Oceanside Post Office, comes inside to congratulate Paragon on getting permission to start his own business. Frankie does not approve of Brodie talking to one of her men.
Honey Burr (tee hee, I like saying her full name) interrupts the Abbot/Calvin love fest to admire Calvin’s messenger bag.
Sorry love, he’s all about Abbot right now.
Beckett, the aforementioned business reviewer, never seems to have any fun at these gatherings. He’s always off by himself, staring into space.
Lars is upstairs in Rocky’s room teaching Corleone how to speak.
Lars: Say, “Wash your greasy hair!” tee hee hee!
Frankie might like to switch back and forth between Achilles and Paragon, but I think Achilles is her number one guy.
Paragon: She never kisses up my arm. *pouts*
I rest my case.
The guests are starting to get hungry…
so Rocky leaves Rowena to grill hot dogs.
Surprisingly, it has taken this long for someone to christen the hot tub! Natural Scientist Yasmin Onnen and her girlfriend Noelee try to warm themselves up in the crisp winter air.
Paragon, finally having her all to himself, puts the moves on Frankie. I don’t know how his friendship with Achilles will last if this keeps up.
Rowena, already bored with the party, decides to quietly case the joint. Rocky mentioned he was in the business of high quality bubble recreation. She doesn’t think he’ll mind if she tests the product.
He wasn’t joking about the quality. Maybe they could go into business together!
With the television placed in Rocky’s boudoir, most of the guests start to make their way upstairs to watch the game.
Edwina: What? There’s a bubble blower up here? How has Rocky not got caught by Officer Sadie? Hee hee, move over Kitty, I want to blow!!
It doesn’t look like their team is doing too well.
Calvin: That Paragon could butter my muffin any day!
Scarface does not approve of Calvin’s double entendres.
Calvin: I HATE DOGS!
Meanwhile another Newsie is having a great time with Rocky’s other pet.
Calvin: That Rocky could blow my bubbles any day!
Scarface’s next victim — Paragon Barrett.
Edwina starts to get high off of the bubbles.
Frankie: He’s so hot when he’s hunted by dogs!
Even though Kent was invited to the party he’s wary of entering Rocky’s home. Kent has received threats from the other members of the “Garden Club” and is pretty sure Rocky wants him gone. One day they’re going to need to sit down and discuss this. But today is not the day.
While Paragon creepily tries to hook-up with Noelee, Calvin starts a smustle-off.
Lars joins his girlfriend and the Cat Lady at the bubble blower.
Frankie joins in!
Brodie and Angie show off their moves too.
Upset that he didn’t get to hook-up with anyone, Paragon leaves the party early.
Honey Burr: So you’re a scientist, huh? So do you do experiments on people too? Could I be part of your experiments? I wouldn’t mind if you gave me a chest examination!
STEP AWAY FROM THE UNDERAGE GIRLS!
As expected, Rocky made a few new clients at this party.
The thumping techno dance beat finally got to Beckett who had been standing outside the whole time…
He joins in the smustle-off!
These birds sure do go through food fast!
Honey Burr is the next sim to join in the smustling!
Cindy Lou whispers her appreciation of Angie’s sexy dance moves.
Even Abbot joins in.
Rocky and Achilles partake in the libations.
Poor Yasmin becomes Scarface’s next victim.
That Woohoo On The Beach was tad bit too strong for Achilles.
This season’s NPC-palooza comes to an end!
Stay tuned for more Rocky on the next update!
Notes: So I totally forgot to add the Garden Club members to the party! Don’t worry, you will see them in the next update.
The only time Rocky would get caught with the bubble blower is if Sadie walked by the house while someone was using it. If he’s caught he will go directly to jail (on Sadie’s next rotation).
Thanks for reading! ^.^
