Sophie Fletcher: Round 4 / Witch Path

Last time we visited Sophie she was trying for the Impossible Want of 50 Dream Dates. Well, she kind of gave up on that idea for now. I'm not sure if she will come back to that goal or not. For now...

Photobucket

Sophie looked deeply into her TwoJeff's crystal ball and choose the wrong man.

Photobucket

She meant to choose Daniel Graham, a man on her list of 20 "conquests" from her college days.

Photobucket

Daniel is a popularity sim with a side order of grilled cheese. Nice suit there buddy, LOL.

Photobucket

I guess she was friends with Sam Tucker because she inherited some money from him.

Photobucket

Since it was Monday, I let them move to a new house. Spooky!

Photobucket

Okay, not really. They now live at 4 Apple Avenue.

Photobucket

Daniel wastes no time in proposing.

Photobucket

Such a sweet, innocent face he has.

Photobucket

Sophie on the other hand never looks sweet and innocent.

Photobucket

I think Sophie must have been in charge of the wedding invitations - just a guess.

Photobucket

Poor Daniel is under Sophie's spell. I doubt he really knows what he's gotten himself into.

Photobucket

Wait, Sophie DOES look sweet and innocent! It's a miracle!

Photobucket

Okay, never mind.

Photobucket

I'm glad to see that Daniel has the good sense not to try to smash cake into his mean wife's face.

Photobucket

Grace swoons over her new son-in-law. Ewww.

Photobucket

Uh yeah, back off Grace. You have your own man at home.

Photobucket

This is an interesting time for you to proclaim an interest in Music and Dance, Daniel.

Photobucket

Go easy on the champagne folks. There are no bathrooms at the cemetery. That's right - what better place for a mean witch to get married? Apple Grove Church just didn't seem appropriate for Sophie.

Photobucket

A good witch showed up, and I thought that maybe there would be an exciting confrontation between good and evil.

Photobucket

All she did was try to ruin Sophie's wedding by making everything all pretty.

Photobucket

I find it funny that when townies move in, they are "re-flowered." So, this is Daniel's first time - again.

Photobucket

What the heck are you up to this time, Sophie? She is constantly cackling and rubbing her hands together and looking devious.

Photobucket

Sophie's half brother Wilson dropped by a really nice wedding gift - a Florid Font.

Photobucket

Sophie had already earned her 20 Woohoo LTW in college - remember? I try to forget. So I decided to have her take a job in Education so she could do one good thing in her life - earn the Education career reward. Future generations will be very happy to be able to study from the bookshelf she earned.

Photobucket

Daniel's Lifetime Want is to become Captain Hero. That's ironic since his wife spends most of her free time trying to become atrociously evil. Anyway, thank you Daniel for being such a good sim. So sorry you wound up with Sophie, dude.

Photobucket

Thankfully, he didn't have to wait long to get started on his goal. He was able to find a job offer in law enforcement right away.

Photobucket

And he looks happy about his promotion to Desk Sergeant.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Walking twenty blocks for donuts got him promoted to Vice Squad! Never underestimate the power of deep fried bread.

Photobucket

Speaking of work, even though she now has maternity leave, Sophie has headed off to work.

Photobucket

Wow! Daniel is already a detective! Good job! The dog seemed impressed as well.

Photobucket

Sophie gets a promotion to College Dean of Students! I guess they saw her overzealousness to work while on maternity leave as a good thing.

Photobucket

I checked, and despite Sophie's somewhat neglected childhood, she has earned all her lifetime aspiration points.

Photobucket

My fake daughter Amiee has come on her daily rounds to steal the newspaper. Ever since she was a kid she's been stealing papers all over town. I assume she must have the meanest personality in Apple Grove.

Photobucket

And speaking of mean, Sophie is working hard to be meaner. She is now evil instead of just mean.

Photobucket

Daniel gets promoted to Lieutenant. It seems he was made for police work. It's nice to have a sim who wants something and really means it. Daniel seems to really want his Lifetime Want.

Photobucket

Sophie has now reached her goal to become atrociously evil. Uh, congratulations?

Photobucket

She can now do this really nifty thing called Magivestigium. In other words, she can teleport in this cool beam of light.

Photobucket

She now spends all of her time down in the basement. Here she is making reagents for a spell.

Photobucket

Oh no, it must be a really bad one...

Photobucket

She's casting the spell...

Photobucket

Whew! A feline familiar doesn't seem too bad. Isn't that gender symbol a little confusing? It's like the symbol for Prince, LOL. It was unclear whether to give the new creature a male or female name.

Photobucket

Meet Merlin. Merlin turned out to be a female cat. Grrr.

Photobucket

Speaking of new creatures... Sophie picks the smallest room in the house to give birth.

Photobucket

She had a baby boy.

Photobucket

What an interesting birth announcement.

Photobucket

The bedroom for Havelock looks a bit feminine. I guess Sophie was really hoping for a girl.

Photobucket

But, it was quick work for her to change everything to blue.

Photobucket

Poor Havelock gets about as much attention from Sophie as Daniel does.

Photobucket

At least his daddy loves him.

Photobucket

Even when he stinks, LOL.

Photobucket

Not only is she atrociously evil, but she has now reached the top of her magic skill.

Photobucket

I'm not sure why she's playing basketball, LOL. She is now the atrociously evil Education Minister. I wonder what evil schemes she has in store for the kids of Apple Grove.

Photobucket

Ahh... the purpose of the Claws of Darkness Throne has become clear. It's an energizer! Yay! Sophie somehow magically made this in the cauldron.

Photobucket

Merlin absolutely hates Daniel, and so her favorite activity is to chase him.

Photobucket

Daniel is beginning to realize that his wife is always preoccupied with magic study. He hoped that maybe he could reach her though the teddy bear, but had no luck. I don't have a picture, but during all his free time, he learned to become an expert pianist and earned his Music & Dance hobby plaque.

Photobucket

Merlin finally takes a rest from her evil ways. I read in the Prima guide that if she gets on the throne it works as an energizer for the feline familiar as well.

Photobucket

Not even the new butler is willing to talk to him. Poor Daniel. Maybe when Havelock grows up a little he'll have a friend to talk to. Hopefully Havelock will take after his father and not follow in his mother's footsteps.

Photobucket

Here is the updated family tree for Sophie.

Scoring: 1 point for adding Daniel to the neighborhood, 1 point for Sophie earning all her Lifetime Aspiration Points, 1 point for Daniel earning his Music & Dance hobby plaque, 1 point for adding Havelock to the neighborhood, and 1 point for Sophie reaching the top of the Education career. The total population of Apple Grove is 40. The current population is 38.

OH wow! Sophie made it to the top. I haven't done that yet. I wanna play with witches...Funny about Merlin not likin' Daniel. LOL Nobody likes Daniel. Let's hope his son does.

Well, that was an oddly mismatched family. Although one may like to think that Sophie, by choosing such a nice guy to father and rise her child, may still have a shred of goodness buried deep under the seething green surface of evil...

Mrs. Stuffy said...

Where did she find the time?!! Great family!

Minty said...

I love playing with witches and the evil ones have better costumes than the good ones.

Francesca Dean, Feature Editor said...

That Sophie is a hoot! Do the feline familiars always have that "prince" symbol?

You got some great pictures of Sophie and I enjoyed your artsy sepia as well.

ciyrose said...

That picture of Sophie at the computer makes her look REALLY beautiful. Course then she turns and looks evil, but still. lol

I'm super surprised that Sofie didn't wear black to her wedding...a white dress just doesn't seem like her. :) Ah, well at least it was held at a cemetery...that seems fitting.

Havelock's eyes are huge. Very cute baby!

Twoflower said...

Thanks for reading, ciyrose. :) Sophie is a really beautiful sim. I have mixed feeling about her. She tries to be evil, but every once in awhile some of her goodness shows through.
