Knight 1 Round 2

Knight 1 Round 2
How much is that Doggie in the Window?
Welcome once again to another new Prosperity Point House. This one belongs to Kora Knight and Jazz Holiday. Jazz is one of Andre's triplets. He grew up broke but very loved. He first met Kora as a teen. They fell hard for each other and attended Sim State University together where they were engaged. Now they've returned to begin their lives together.

Sim Rachel- Kora, Jazz. So good to see you two again! What a lovely house you have chosen for yourselves.
-Jazz runs off-
Kora- Thanks Rachel, we found it online. We just loved the little pond in the yard.
Sim Rachel- Hey, where'd Jazz run off to?

Kora- Bed. I'm afraid he came down with the nasty flu everyone has had. I think he got it at Destin's wedding.
Sim Rachel- That's too bad. I hope he gets better soon.
-12 hours pass-
Sim Rachel- Hey, so where's Jazz? I see he isn't in is bed.
Kora- Shopping. Amelia's Closet.
-Sim Rachel jumps in a cab and speeds off to Amelia's Closet-

Sim Rachel- There you are Jazz!
Jazz- You almost missed me. I'm done shopping and I was just talking to some of the townies before heading home.

Sim Rachel- Finally ready to go home Jazz?
Jazz- Yep, Kora told me not to be too late. She wants to get married tonight. She said we already lost so much time with me being sick.
Sim Rachel- Yeah, you are a little behind.
-Jazz gives Sim Rachel a weird look. The two share a cab back to the house-

Sim Rachel- Oh Kora, you are such a lovely bride!
Kora- Thank you mame. Jazz picked everything out.
Sim Rachel- That's a little odd isn't it?
Kora- Well, yes, but we're in such a hurry. I had to get my hair and make-up done s so it saved time this way.
Sim Rachel- I see. Hey is that the doorbell? Sounds like the guests are arriving.
Kora- You'd best head downstairs then. We'll be starting shortly.

Sim Rachel- What would a Holiday wedding be without a pillow fight?
Me- I wonder if Jenn had a pillow fight at her wedding a couple weeks ago?
Sim Rachel- Whose Jenn?
Me- A fellow simmer. Nevermind, really.

Sim Rachel- Getting tired Kora?
Kora- Yes, mame. It's been a long day and it's almost midnight.
Sim Rachel- Well, things should be wrapping up soon and then you can relax on your honeymoon.

Sim Rachel- The limos here.
Kora: Not a moment too soon. I'm exhausted.

Sim Rachel- I think this is my que to leave.
-The next afternoon-

Sim Rachel- Kora! Kora! Wake up!
Kora- What's going on?
Sim Rachel- Looks like you did a face plant into your grilled cheese. You just got back from your honeymoon, how can you be SO tired.
Kora- Jazz and I were up most the night.
Sim Rachel- Sick to your stomach? Is the flu back?
Kora- Umm, no. Something else.
Sim Rachel- Oh.

Sim Rachel- Hey Jazz! What are you up to?
Jazz: Doing some studying before Kora and I head off to the new Pets Store.
Sim Rachel- I heard that place was coming. I'm SO excited it's finally open!
Me: I think we all are!Jazz: What was that? The TV?
Sim Rachel- Umm, sure. Hey, let's get going.

Sim Rachel- Oh Kora what a beautiful Rochweiler.
Kora- Thanks. We've decided to take her home. We've named her Roxie.

Sim Rachel- Jazz how are things going with the new dog?
Jazz- Just great. She doesn't chew the furniture or piddle inside. She the best dog we could have asked for.
Sim Rachel- Great! I can't wait to get back home and get one of my own.

Sim Rachel- Kora do you have some news for us?
Kora- Yep, looks like we'll be adding another family member very soon. I'm very excited, I'd love to have 10!
Me- Humm, I think I could arrange that.
Side note- I thought this was a great picture just to show all the realistic touches Maxis added to the game. Anyway, back to the story.

Sim Rachel- Whose you friend Kora and ... what's that you're eating? -Looks at me- Hey!
Me- Hey she wants 10 kids, we might as well go for twins right out of the gate.

Sim Rachel- Roxie don't bark at the TV. Hey I think your friend Pepper is here. Go see Pepper girl.

Kora- Oh Roxie, you got so dirty playing with Pepper today. Oh well, I bet you had fun girl didn't ya?
Roxie- bark

Kora- I think it's time!!!!

Kora- Here's our son Apollo. He takes after me in everyway.
Sim Rachel- And?
Kora- And what? Uh, man the pain is back!!!

Kora- And, umm this is Zeus. He's the spitting image of his daddy Jazz. Hey how did you know there would be twins.
Sim Rachel- When you've seen it happen this much, you sort of catch onto the causes.
Kora- Causes, what causes?
Sim Rachel- Che...
Me- Hey you can't tell her.
Sim Rachel- There must be something in the water *gives me a nasty look*

Sim Rachel- Oh my God! Kora, Kora are you alright?
Kora- Oh yeah, sorry to scare you. I'm trying to teach Roxie how to play dead. Didn't mean to scare you.

Sim Rachel- Umm, Santos you don't live here. Do you just go around to people's houses and bathe their babies?
Santos- Pretty much.
Sim Rachel- Interesting hobby dude. Well it looks like it's about time for the twins' birthday. Why don't you put a diaper on that baby and give him to one of his parents?

Sim Rachel- Wow Jazz, Zeus really does look a lot like you.
Jazz- Quite amazing isn't it?

Sim Rachel- And Apollo kind of looks like his grandpa Joe.

Apollo- Me wuv Roxie

Kora- Looks like we'll be needing another crib.
Me- *Sending subliminal message to Kora* Make cheesecake. You love cheesecake!Sim Rachel- Well I had best be off. Thanks for letting me hang out with your family.
Kora- Not a problem any time.
Points - 2 usual for two new sims

A couple interesting pictures. I think the sofa is trying to eat my sims

Caligula 1 Round 2

Caligula 1 Round 2
Word Sure Does Get AroundToday we start another new house. This one belongs to Kalliope Caligula and Dakota Holiday. Dakota is another son of Andre Holiday. Kalliope is a quintuplet and her family came here when she was a toddler. These two met in high school and headed to Sim State together. They kept a very low profile there although I did manage to get a shot of them getting engaged. They are very sweet together and any time I don't have them engaged in an activity they are flirting or kissing. See (look below).

Sim Rachel: Hi there guys. Welcome back to Prosperity Point! We sure didn't see too much of you at Sim State.
Kalliope: Dakota is shy, he doesn't like to faunt our relationship. He just wants to learn and be a Mad Scientist one day. As for me, the more friends, the better. I really want to be Mayor of Prosperity Point. Dakota said he was nervous about you coming by and asked me to talk to you. I don't mind really.
Sim Rachel: No reason to be nervous. I'm sure once he gets to know me, he'll start to open up.

Sim Rachel: This sure is a lovely house you have here.
Kalliope: Well, thank you. We ordered it off the internet. Sort of strange I know, but it was so lovely.

Dakota: (in a hussed voice) Kalliope did you hear what Wen did? She's going around picking fights with people. She's supposed to be the head of the Welcome Wagon, what's with her?

Kalliope: Oh MY!!!!
Sim Rachel: What's that Dakota? I didn't quite hear you.
Dakota: Nothing, really.

Sim Rachel: Kalliope, what are you up to now?
Kalliope: Gotta practice my speeches if I want to be Mayor ya know!
Sim Rachel: I see, where's Dakota?
Kalliope: Upstairs.

Sim Rachel: Whatcha doing Dakota? You aren't working on your skills!
Dakota: I have the flu. I need to relax. The doctor said I have to stay as comfortable as possible and not to be around anyone, even Kalliope.
Sim Rachel: I'd better take off then, I have a poor immune system. Bye. *runs downstairs and out the front door*

Sim Rachel: Hey guys, what are you all doing out here.
Benjamin: We're the Welcome Wagon, but these people aren't answering their door.
Sim Rachel: Dakota is sick with the flu. The house is quarentined until he gets better.
*group walks off dejected*

Sim Rachel: Kimberly Emmis, what is going on?
Kimberly: I came by to visit this new family. I heard about their wonderful internet house. I wanted to congratulate them.
Sim Rachel: Dakota is sick with the flu. So they aren't allowed visitors.
Kimberly: What? Don't they know I only stop by a few houses? Well, I'm outta here!

Sim Rachel: *creeps quietly back in the house to see if Dakota is better* Dakota is sleeping, that's good, hopefully he'll be better soon then. I wonder what's he's dreaming about
Me: Your daughter, Victoria.
Sim Rachel: What? How do you know that?
Me: I have my ways. Sim Rachel: You sure do know a lot for a sim.
Me: Oh great this again! Sim Rachel: Where did Kalliope go now?
Me: Check Bluewater, at Amelia's Closet.

Sim Rachel: There you are. I thought you weren't supposed to be in contact with anyone while Dakota is sick.
Kalliope: He's all better now. I had been couped up for too long, I just had to get out. Plus tomorrow is our wedding and we need clothes.

Kalliope: Yeah, Dakota really likes doing jigsaw puzzles. He's a geek but I love him.
-An hour later-

Kalliope: Really, so their gross earnings went up? Interesting.
Sim Rachel: Hey Kalliope don't you think you should head home soon.
Kalliope: I was so busy meeting people I almost forgot about my hair appointment. I'll see you at home.
-Another 2 hours pass-

Sim Rachel: Oh Kalliope, what a lovely hair do you got for the wedding!
Kalliope: Thanks, I like it too.

Sim Rachel: Dakota are you excited for the wedding tomorrow? Dakota? Hey Dakota!
Dakota: What now?
Sim Rachel: Nevermind, go back to studying.

Sim Rachel: Kalliope, what are you doing now?
Kalliope: Rehearsing the vows.
Sim Rachel: At a podium?
Kalliope: Where else?
Sim Rachel: I suppose.
-The next morning-

Sim Rachel: Don't you both look lovely! And your house makes for such a pretty back drop! Oh it's starting.

Sim Rachel: Yet another lovely wedding! Weddings and birthdays galour around here!

Jupiter: And when I'm president, everyone will be able to eat macaroni and cheese for every meal!
Me: Man that Jupiter is cute!
Sim Rachel: Get down Kalliope!!!

Sim Rachel: Ahh yes, the ritual pillow fight at the reception.

Sim Rachel: Great party Kalliope. Wait Kalliope, where are you going? Get in the limo!

Sim Rachel: Seriously, you missed your honeymoon to take a shower!

Dakota: Why didn't you come on the honeymoon.
Kalliope: I wanted to make sure I smelled as sweet as roses for tonight.
Sim Rachel: *slides silently out of the room*
-The Next Day-

Dakota: Alright!!! I just got a promotion!

Sim Rachel: Looks like there's a little one on the way. Not too surprising.

Sim Rachel: What's wrong Dakota?
Dakota: I just got demoted.
Sim Rachel: Oh no!!! Buck up, you'll get back on your feet.

Dakota: Yep Gordan, Kalliope is working her way up to Judge.
Me: Yep, Gordan Anderson is of the "Famous" Andersons from Pass a Sim. He just married in though.

Kalliope: It's nice to meet you Flower!

Kalliope: And you Janson!
Sim Rachel: Making friends?
Kalliope: Working on it.

Dakota: I got my promotion!!!

Dakota: Party time!!!

Sim Rachel: More visitors?
Kalliope: Of course! What else would I do during materity leave?
Sim Rachel: Rest?
Kalliope: Nahh.

Sim Rachel: Dakota, even you're making friends?
Dakota: I need more for my next promotion.

Kalliope: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

Kalliope: Here's are sweet baby girl, Ellen. Awww, she's shy like her papa.

Sim Rachel: She's adorable!!! All these Holiday kids are!!!

Dakota: Oh boy another promotion and...

... some beautiful flowers for my beautiful wife!

Kalliope: I'm a Judge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sim Rachel: Oh, hey Venice! Did ya come over to meet your neice?
Venice: Yep, she's alright, actually pretty cute.
Sim Rachel: Wow, so you think you might want some babies of your own?
Venice: Heck no! No kids for me.
Me: We'll see about that. Moohaha!
Venice: What was that?
Sim Rachel: Nothing.

Dakota: And we powder the baby tushie.
Kalliope:Venice this is Cal. I thought you two might get along.
Venice: Cal, such a strong name for a strong man. I've heard such wonderful things about you.
Sim Rachel: Excuse me, I'm going to be ill.

Sim Rachel: Flower, you sure are here a lot. Whose this you brought with you?
Flower: This is my cousin Felicity. We both want to get into this story.
Sim Rachel: Slight problem, they had a girl.
Flower: This time. No one around here just has one kid. I'm surprised they didn't have twins.
Sim Rachel: Wait, me too!!!

Sim Rachel: Wait I see a birthday cake. This can only mean one thing!

Sim Rachel: Happy birthday, dear Ellen!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me: One last look at an adorable baby!

Me: Wait, she's still a baby. Time to change the diaper.

Me: Another try.

Sim Rachel: Dakota, she's adorable!
Dakota: Yes, she is and I'm going to teach her everything.

Dakota: Say Dada

Ellen: Naaahhhhaaha

Felicity: We've scouted out this house to get in the story. How dare you try to too!!!

Kalliope: Go to the potty like a big girl Ellen.

Sim Rachel: Ahh, look Ellen's dancing!
Me: How approriate.

Sim Rachel: So sweet Ellen's first steps!

Sim Rachel: Hey look who Dakota brought home with him from work. If it isn't Joe Knight! Joe I heard you're getting into one of these new houses.
Joe: I hope so. Aracely and I are friends, we'll have to see if we get to be anything more.

Kalliope: So my sister-in-law Venice....

Kalliope: ...yeah, she's enemies with...

Kalliope: ... your friend Wen. Wen's picking fights all over the place.

Me:So that's where we'll leave the Caligula household, with the same gossip we started with.
Points: Just 1 for little Ellen.
I wonder if anyone will know what the naming scheme is in this house? It's hard without twins!
