The Saga of the Two brothers

How better for me to play Generations than to create families of the sims of two of my favorite characters?

First up, Brandon and Pat.

And poor little Melissa in the cutest creepiest PJs ever.

Her parents are so cute it's gross. They're going to be embarrassing when she's older.

As in another incarnation of him, Brandon is a firefighter.

But this here is one of my favorite pictures of him. He got home after work and Pat and Melissa were gone. So what's he do? Start playing with Melissa's toys of course. Childish sims are so cute!

See? How cute! I should share video of him doing this. He starts making noises and everything while he plays.

Another gratuitous shot (as they all are). Brandon had just woken up and stepped into the living room and Pat went up to compliment him on his appearance. He's wearing boxer shorts here, so I guess she likes that. I love his thought bubble like he's thinking how lucky he is to be married to her. Awww!

The whole family out for a stroll. I love the stroller though they take it out at stupid times sometimes. Like I sent someone to teach their baby to walk on the front yard and after they stepped down the porch brought out the stroller to walk a few feet. Still it's so cute when I send the entire family shopping.

And of course we're dealing with both brothers. For some reason, I thought it'd be fun to give Jimmy glasses. Perhaps that's just a personal bias?

And if I'm dealing with Jimmy, then I'm dealing with Mary too.

But in this alternate reality, they already have kids. Remember the last one? Unfortunately, she went invisible, most likely due to some sort of corruption.

So let me introduce teen Kaya (v. 2.0) and Allison.

Kaya is not Mary's, she's only Jimmy's daughter. This is actually cannon. She's mentioned here (for those who read Ruin). Jimmy was a young dad. It wasn't his choice if you can believe it, he was jumped by the girl and Kaya was the result. He was only about 15, and I imagine that Kaya is now 15 here.

In the sims story in my head, she's just come to live with Jimmy and Mary. Right now she isn't sure how she feels about Mary or her little sister, as cute as her little sister is.

Here she sets up a prank just for Mary. Jimmy, with some crazy innate father second sense, came downstairs to scold her, but when he got to the bathroom...

Mary shooed him out and sealed her doom. He went off to go clean.

Oops. Sadly, she went back and washed it all out. It would've been awesome if she'd left her hair pink like that!

Kaya is actually a pretty good teen most of the time. She asked to go to a friend's house and they did homework together.

Kaya also has the very large master bedroom/study, which I think her father gave her partially out of guilt. It's her own space, plus because the other two rooms are on the other side of the house, Jimmy and Mary can be near the baby.

Kaya's room/the study:

I'm not great at decorating. I just wanted to have some fun, and Kaya strikes me as a girl with some personality who likes bright bold colors.

I left my sims alone while setting things up, and wouldn't you know it, both brothers knocked up their wives!

Mary and Pat ran into each other at the bookstore. Gah, I LOVE pregnant sims! Plus it's nice that in Sims 3, both women recognize each other as sisters in law. They're family, basically.

Mary announced her pregnancy to Pat.

And Pat looked appropriately excited for her. I just thought it was cute. Did she think Mary was just getting fat?

Then she threw this face. Like she's saying, "Those boys."

Next time on "As the Sims sim":

Brandon has a minor heart attack. Facing fires is nothing compared to his wife having a baby. (Also, he was asleep and it was three in the morning, why did he feel a need to hop out of bed and change into his work clothes to face this crisis? Training?)

Bonus-- bath time shots!

What? You thought I meant of the babies? ;) I'm just showing off the chest hair.

OMG, Jimmy in glasses! Whew, pixel swoon! lol! :D

I have like zero time for anything right now, so I'll come back to this, and your new story entry in about a week! :)

LOL, Brandon is childish! I never would have guessed. That's adorable.

I love the stroller but I agree that it's pretty silly sometimes. My Sim took her daughter home in a taxi and when she got out, she took out the stroller and wheeled the kid into the house. I think it must have been a whole 10 feet away! But I love Pat wheeling the stroller and Brandon just standing around thinking about dragons, for some reason!

Pregnant Sims!!! I think they're adorable too, in TS2 and TS3. I'm very fond of the gradually expanding belly in TS3, though for some reason it means the baby's arrival always takes me by surprise. Pat's face in that last picture of the girls is too funny!

I love your alternate reality! It makes me feel better for your characters when you put them through such anguish in Ruin, lol!

Charleston Sims said...

Aww, I love this! Your pictures always look so great.

And yay, pregnant Sims!!!

No worries, Laura! But isn't Jimmy particularly cute in glasses? Who knew?

Carla, really? It does fit him so perfectly. He gets along well with kids, plus the other day when Jimmy was on a case, he came across Pat and Brandon playing tag at the laundry mat, LOL!

I love the gradually expanding belly! Unfortunately, when I last checked, RanbowBrite's mod for extending pregnancy hadn't been updated so it was only three days of cute sim bellies.

Thanks Carla. I also love this alternate reality because I can download pretty things and use them!

Hey, Charleston! Aw, thanks. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who adores these pregnant sims as difficult as they are to take care of sometimes, lol.

Okay, now I have comments, lol!

Awww, they're so cute! I love your maternity clothes too! Did those come with Generations? Because I haven't seen those in anyone's stories before.

I feel kind of weird knocking up my story Sims for play, so I think I might create a test family or something. Maybe I'll let them stay in the neighborhood when I'm done! :)

I also love how the game recognizes extended relations. I hacked Mariah and Keri into sisters last night for the first time, and it recognized Micah and Justin as brothers-in-law, and the girls as cousins! I was ridiculously gleeful over that! :D

I love how easy and effective it is to hack family relationships with the Master Controller! It actually works! lol!
