Warnings: a joker, a thief, a fight, a rooftop band, a rockstar tot, bromance, and Brodie in her chonies almost the whole update.
Wednesday, Day 10
I’ll just leave this right here…
All is well in the wee hours of the 1st Fall morning for the Mason-Troubadour clan.
Brodie Mason officially went back to her career as a postal carrier. Working with her love Kendrick Troubadour at the Troubadour Cafe was fun but all of the standing around and waiting on sims was kind of boring for Brodie.
The merging of the two households meant that Kendrick’s old bedroom became Aria‘s nursery and his old studio became Brodie’s salon. They enlarged the upstairs bathroom, ripped the roof off of the back, created an upper deck, and put all of their instruments out there.
Time for Kendrick to head to work tuning the town’s pianos!
Note* I wish there was a mod where all of the car pools were taxi vans instead of these random clunkers.
Neat freak Brodie whistles away as she cleans her filthy condo.
While cleaning, Brodie spots farmer Owen Goodacre loitering about. Using her irresistible charm, she convinces Owen to help her out around the yard. She promises a hot-cooked meal as a reward!
He totes falls for it.
You got to give the customer what they want!
That manipulating Mippaloti!
Kendrick returns home a broken sim.
Kendrick: Why me Watcher? WWWHHHHHYYYYY!!!
He then quickly stuffs his face with comfort food.
Kendrick regains his old career but must go back to selling records on the street corner.
Owen tries to cheer his buddy up with a joke about the curvy doctor Minka…
Which only reminds Kendrick how mad his ex — fortune sim Minka Yomoshoto — would be to learn he lost his job.
Kendrick: She’s never going to woohoo me again. I’m a failure as a sim! WAAAAAAAA!
Kendrick, please stop pining for Minka Yomoshoto. She does not want you anymore!
You better be lucky your girlfriend didn’t overhear your little whine-fest, Kendrick! Instead Brodie is in the upstairs bathroom fixing the broken plumbing.
Oh look, Aria is still alive! (We see you Becca in Green on Pink 1.0!)
Thank goodness Brodie tricked Owen into staying over and gardening. He’s been a big help getting Kendrick back in a good mood.
He even convinces Kendrick to help him out!
Aria’s back to sleep…
so it’s time for Brodie to make that home-cooked meal she promised.
What the hell is wrong with you now Kendrick?
Kendrick: *sniffles* I got fired… Minka doesn’t love me… I hate weeds…
Look at what your girlfriend made, you whiny twat! Lime seared prawns!
Fitz Biltmore, town architect, stops by and is greeted with a hello kiss. Better set another place at the table, Brodie.
As they sit down for dinner Fitz tells the group about the new renter at his old condo, Yasmin Onnen.
Fitz: She was singing songs — to the trees! And flapping her arms around like she was a bird! There’s something seriously wrong with that sim!
After dinner Brodie leaves the guys to take a bath…
and go to bed.
With Owen’s BO getting to the boys…
it’s time to say good night to the guys…
and slip into bed. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for you, Kendrick.
Brodie is up again to take care of stinky and hungry Aria.
And has her first *pop*!
Thursday, Day 11
After staying up most of the night with Aria, Brodie is ready to take a short nap before the sun rises.
Little does she know Kendrick is awake and hoping for some “relaxation.”
After a cold shower…
Kendrick resumes cleaning up the yard. That Garden Club is relentless when it comes to unkempt lawns.
Owen’s wife, and soon-to-be priest, Becca Goodacre waltzes by the condo and catches Kendrick’s attention. Being the romance sim that he is, Kendrick always fancies striking up a conversation with a lady sim.
Staring at said lady’s chest however is not very gentlemanly Kendrick Troubadour!
The prim and proper Becca is not amused.
Kendrick quickly scarfs down breakfast and heads to work.
Brodie: Ah, Aria. My one way ticket into this hood! Because of you I’m not living in a cave anymore! We made it baby girl!
Brodie sees Becca lurking outside and offers her a new haircut.
Brodie: Since you’re going to be the first priest, you should have more serious hair!
Becca agrees that it’s time she had more polished, conservative hair to go with her new position.
Brodie knocks it out of the park. Becca now looks ready to preach the ways of the Watcher to her congregation.
The rest of Brodie’s day consists of eating left-overs…
Composing songs for her’s and Kendrick’s first album…
and feeding Aria.
AHHHH! Not creepy at all Minka Yomoshoto!
Minka: *narrows eyes* I can’t believe he asked that floozy to move in with him!
Just leave it alone, Minka. Leave it alone.
Kendrick is home from work but he’s still sad from yesterday. What makes it worse is that he didn’t get a promotion like he thought he would. Things just aren’t going as planned for Kendrick 🙁
Kendrick and Brodie are beat. They both turn in early.
Becca in Green uses this time to take a dip into the ocean. Living on the farm, Becca is a little envious of the other sims that have houses right on the beach.
But envy is not Watcher-like so Becca just enjoys her time in the waves.
Aria has a great pair of lungs. She might get her own record deal before she’s out of diapers.
This time both parents get up for the late might feeding.
Brodie to eat…
and Kendrick to change Aria. Even though Kendrick does not like children, this little one is slowly growing on him. Hopefully he doesn’t notice that there’s another one on the way >.>
Kendrick is anxious to begin Aria’s education on musical arts.
So he plops her down in her baby gym…
and plays the classics for her until she falls asleep.
Friday, Day 12
Then it’s back to bed.
Kendrick: *sings* I keep on fallin’… in and out… of love… with you. I never… loved someone… the way that I… love you!
Aria: WAAAAHHHHH! MAKE IT STOP!!!!
I wish little one, I wish.
Dad finally gets the message and puts Aria back in her music-free crib.
*Obligatory condo at dawn shots*
Kendrick has breakfast at dawn on the side porch. He’s determined to have a great day today so he can earn his old job back as a piano tuner.
Kendrick is actually doing a decent job taking care of Aria. Color me impressed.
That’s just enough time for Kendrick to get a little jam session going on!
Brodie wakes up and actually puts on clothing! Will miracles never cease?
It’s Aria’s transition day! The usual friends of the parents and the hood’s toddlers are all invited. (Notice Minka Yomoshoto was NOT invited…)
Sheesh! The toddler population is growing at a crazy rate!
As the guests pour in Brodie whips up a new dish, chirashi.
Evie Goodacre wanted nothing to do Aiden Biltmore‘s brother Heath, yet she’s all over poor Aiden. Aiden thinks girls have cooties and won’t let her touch him.
“Bromance: The Toddler Edition” starring Antonio Lambswool and Heath Biltmore.
Cyan Troubadour-Bossanova and Gwyneth Landgraab are still BFFs4L.
Poor Matisse Troubadour, on her second pregnancy, has her first interaction of the party with the toilet bowl.
Boy, does that look yummy!
Oh Matisse, if only you knew what your man, Kent Healey, was doing at NPC-palooza!
Even though they look nothing like them, my first thought when I see the three Biltmore brothers is the Curious brothers.
Connor and Selena Firestone are the winners of the First To Get Freaky At A Kid’s Birthday Party award for this week.
Matisse: You do remember that I’m an attorney, right Diego. Where’s my child support?
Diego: Do you hear something, Connor? I think there’s a gnat buzzing around my ear.
Dawn Lambswool rocks out with Brodie’s guitar.
Soon it’s time to bring Aria to the cake!
Say good-bye to baby Aria!
And hello to toddler Aria in Native clothing!
After a bit of styling, heeere’s Aria! Aria Mason-Troubadour is a 9-7-9-3-1 Scorpio with high interests in Sci-Fi and travel, and her OTH is sports.
From her father she inherited his dislike of children and from her mother her freckles and love of laying on the couch. Her parents hope she becomes the next generation’s biggest rockstar!
But first, the first generation get together and rock out! Matisse and Kent on the electric guitars, mailman Lars Shadow on the drums, and chef George Lambswool as lead singer.
Eve tries to cuddle with her first crush, Nico Firestone, who shoots her down yet again 🙁
The hungry tots head to the sand for nourishment.
Just stop being so cute Aria!
Both Kent and Lars earned some simoleons today!
As the guests are leaving Kendrick returns home with a promotion!
It’s time for Aria’s first potty training lesson — 1 of 10,000.
Some of the guests decide to stay longer >:/
Kendrick is so happy to see little toddler Aria in her rocker gear!
Now that Kendrick’s home, a very exhausted Brodie squeezes in a nap before she delivers the next baby.
Lars is a jokester too. One day he and Owen need to have a joke-off to see who’s the funniest sim in Oceanside.
Finally Kendrick says good night to all of the stragglers.
And the house is asleep.
Brodie gets a hobby membership while she dreams. Score!
Saturday, Day 13
Oh, you’re such a cute burglar! Nevermind…
Kendrick, wake up!
Kendrick: …just five more minutes Mom…
OMGaaaa she’s in the house!
Rowena de Hommel: Yes! Jackpot!!
Kendrick! She’s casing the joint! Wake up!
Kendrick: Don’t forget my fruit snacks this time, Mom.
Rowena: Let’s see what else we can find, shall we?
Brodie: Kendrick, get up. I think I hear someone in the kitchen.
Kendrick: It’s just Aria. Go back to bed.
Brodie: I hear someone walking in sneakers.
Kendrick: Aria wears sneakers.
Brodie: But she can’t walk, Kendrick!
Kendrick: All right! Sheesh! I’m getting up!
She’s making her way outside. Run!
Rowena: Is this all they got? Where’s all those fancy instruments? Huh? What do you mean “look out?”
GET HER KENDRICK!
Brodie: Ah, dinner and a show.
After all that, Kendrick loses to the burglar. But hey, at least she didn’t steal anything *bright side*
*evil cat eyes* Rowena: This isn’t the last you’ve seen of me Kendrick Troubadour!
Kendrick swallows his pride of having his ass handed to him by resuming the potty training of Aria which includes dumping the potty chair.
Back on the patio:
The excitement of the attempted robbery has made Brodie go into labor!
It’s a girl…
Kendrick: *pouts* I agreed to one more baby, not two!
SHUT UP AND TAKE THE DAMN BABY!
And a girl!
First born is Piper Mason-Troubadour! Piper has her mom’s light skin, her dad’s brown eyes, and both parent’s black hair.
Next is Poem Mason-Troubadour! Poem has tan skin, her dad’s brown eyes, and both parent’s black hair. I’m never going to be able to tell them apart.
Because of the double addition to the family, the Mason/Troubadours enclosed their upper patio and extended the girls’ room.
The shock of having three little rugrats running around has finally come over Brodie.
Aria: Mommy looks funny when she cries 😀
After a quick shower Kendrick returns to sing the twins to sleep.
And autonomously feeds kid #2 — uh… Poem.
Brodie makes omelet breakfast for herself and Kendrick.
And she earns another hobby membership!
After breakfast Brodie worries that she might be losing some of her looks after birthing three babies.
Brodie: What was I thinking? Of course I’m still the hottest chick on this island!
Kendrick is off to work thinking about his lady.
Brodie sees teacher Selena Firestone outside and invites her in. Brodie always thought Selena was very pretty but she needs to zhuzh it up a bit.
Oh dear… I know you wanted to add some color Brodie, but this is too much!
(I had to, I’m sorry)
Somehow Brodie convinced Selena to get back in the chair so she could fix it.
You know, maybe make-up isn’t your forte Brodie. You should probably just stick to hair styling!
Aria: Joker Lady! Joker Lady! Pick me up!
Selena: Wait kid, you totally reek!
Luckily Selena wipes all of the crazy paint from her face without a problem. Sometimes being plain is better.
Brodie begins the marathon change-fest between the three girls.
Kendrick returns home…
With a promotion! BAM!
In order to advance further in his career and to have something to talk about with the coffee shop customers, Kendrick practices his opinions on the government.
He then studies the mechanics of the coffee shop sound system.
Aria: I’m stinky and wet and no one’s held me in long tiiimmmme!!!
Mommy’s on it.
Aria: *tee-hee* My plan is working!
After putting Aria to bed Brodie has time to shred on the guitar!
Thanks for reading! ^.^
Notes: Yay! Our first burglary! Sadie can finally become a cop like she’s always dreamed ^.^
Unfortunately, with all of the chaos, I wasn’t able to visit The Troubadour Cafe and the Oceanside Post Office this season.
Brodie has the easiest pregnancies I have ever seen in this game. She’s never had morning sickness and the worse she ever got was a low fun need. She’s a rock star!
Due to the fact that Brodie and Kendrick are the same face, Selzi’s replacement for Face 18, Aria, Piper, and Poem are practically indistinguishable from each other (Piper and Poem could almost be called identical twins!) It will be a challenge to make them look different as they grow up!
