I was going to wait until they got married before starting Coral and Cason’s family. But…well, I love sim babies (waiting with baited breath for toddlers to return), and the first day they both had off was Saturday. So Coral was perhaps a little bit pregnant for the wedding.
Hilary passed away the day after Cason moved, making it our second unwitnessed bedroom death. Even though Austin was sleeping nearby, he didn’t wake up in time. So once again no one suffered overly much from her passing. Which was great since soon it was Saturday and the day for our next wedding. That’s a day for joy not tears. Conan had to work in the middle of the ceremony (he’s a space smuggler now), but the ceremony itself was another beautiful gold-medal park wedding.
The bride then spent the second half of the wedding asleep whenever she could get away with a nap and the groom was just barely happy enough to get over his discomfort with all the strangers who’d been invited. Luckily Reef and Austin were there to keep the party going. Reef didn’t manage to meet anyone who sparked his interest just yet, but he’ll be calling some of the girls up.
A few days later and it was Reef’s birthday. Coral was too busy being pregnant to throw a party for her brother, but she did bake him a cake. He’s not chosen a career yet so he hangs about the house, playing the violin and inviting women over. After three test women, he’s finally got his eyes on one woman with a cute hat and they have really great chemistry. I was planning to keep Reef in the main home rather than send him off, but I’m not sure if we’ll be able to fit his spouse and any children in the house.
Our house is filling back up again although we’ve gotten Austin’s ‘end of life’ notice and are only a couple days away from receiving Conan’s final warning. But the day after the wedding, we all got to greet our newest Pigglewiggle, Bond Pigglewiggle.
I have to keep my eyes on Cason. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s a “good” Sim, but I keep finding him out in the mausoleum mourning Lemongrass (whom he never met). While he does need to paint 3 emotional paintings, I’d hate for them all to be “sad” paintings. Cason is the only family member who has ever been in the Pigglewiggle mausoleum. We saw Hilary a couple nights before she disappeared. I’m not sure exactly what’s purging the ghosts, we still have Lemongrass so something is working, but the mod obviously isn’t completely fixing the ghost eraser. He also chatted with Hilary the one time her ghost appeared before she was eaten by the ghost monsters. My patch is apparently not working quite so well and Lemongrass remains our sole (soul, ha!) ghost. While I appreciate fewer ghosts to deal with, I’d kind of like to know my founders and heirs will always be there.
So we’ll leave Austin and Conan at the end of their life spans, their inventories empty and achievement points cruelly converted to youth potions.
