The Tuckers 2: Round 5 / Scandal in Apple Grove?

Photobucket

When we last visited Brian Tucker's house, he was working on his distasteful LTW of woohooing 20 different sims.  After that was over with, I made him marry one of the twenty, Dagmar.  Dagmar was abducted by aliens, and saved from death by starvation before giving birth to Aerosmith.  Brain got a makeover and was working on becoming a rockstar.

It looks like doing the honorable and right thing got Brian §32,000.  Good thing he has me as his manager. ;)

Photobucket

Brian has already earned his music career reward, and is looking pretty dorky by practicing with a thinking cap on. Helmet hair is going to mess up his rockstar image all day.

 Photobucket

Dagmar had a want to get fit. I'm sure it's because she thinks I'm going to give in and let her have her LTW.

Photobucket

A stupid want, which is way stupider because she's married.  I really thought the point of marriage is that you are with that one person only.

Photobucket

Dagmar is actually not an insightful person, but she did get a free computer from the guy. He is probably the insightful person who is thinking flattery will get him everywhere with this so-called knowledge sim.  I think she only cares about carnal knowledge.

Photobucket

I let Dagmar start a spa business right across the street from her house, Dagmar's Radiance Spa.  Do you think this is going to be a legitimate business, or is Dagmar going to corrupt the fine little town of Apple Grove?

Photobucket

Here I am, debating with myself about what to do with her.  Should I let her have what she wants?  It was a dilemma.  On the one hand, I'm morally opposed to this, but on the other hand it is the way some people are, and to me a LTW seems important.

Photobucket

It would seem that there is already some gossip going on among the customers about the true nature of this business.

Photobucket

Dagmar assures this guy that there's no funny business going on at the Radiance Spa.  He looks disappointed.  I honestly just think she just finds him repulsive.

Photobucket

Dagmar and this customer enjoy gossiping about vampires.  Daniel Graham is here to check out Apple Grove's newest business, but he may not want to be seen here in case his wife Sophie the atrociously evil witch thinks he's up to something. She may turn him into a frog if she thinks he's cheating on her.

Photobucket

Uh-oh, and here she is - speak of the devil. Nothing escapes her notice, so hopefully for Dagmar and Daniel's sakes, she doesn't find anything amiss at the Radiance Spa.

Photobucket

Okay, well it seems there really is at least some legitimate business going on here.

Although when Dagmar finally returns home after spending several days at the spa, this looks more than just a little suspicious....

Wow, that's an army of men with bouquets.

Photobucket

So many bouquets that they were running out of room for all of them in the front yard.

Photobucket

And the men started lining them up along the side of the house.

Photobucket

And then of course there is this undeniable photo evidence right here.

Photobucket

But moving on to a more pleasant topic, Aerosmith is now a cute toddler that looks a great deal like his dad. 

Photobucket

Um, wow. The trash can is on fire. That's a new one. It doesn't seem to worry the butler, though.

Photobucket

Brian has only a few good qualities, but he does take some time to spend with his son.

Photobucket

It looks like another little Tucker will soon be joining the family.  I wonder how Brian feels about that and what he's thinking.  Is he at all suspicious that his wife is even worse than he is?

Photobucket

Before they knew it, Aerosmith was ready to start school.

Photobucket

He loves culture and entertainment, which explains his love of music, although having a dad who is a rockstar could also be part of his enthusiasm for music.

Photobucket

Surprisingly, Dagmar wanted to fix up an old car. Tinkering is her one true hobby.  Well, it's the one she can talk about in polite company, at least.

Photobucket

Aerosmith really loves his dad.

Photobucket

And even though his dad is kind of mean and hits him with the ball, he doesn't mind too much.

Photobucket

He and his dad share sports as their one true hobby.

Photobucket

As most sims like to do, Dagmar chose the smallest room in the house.

Photobucket

And gave birth to a cute baby girl and named her Blondie.  Question: Does brown hair + red hair = blond hair?

Photobucket

Blondie gets to spend a lot of time in the care of their new butler, Jeeves.  Jeeves is not his name, but from now on I think I'll call every butler Jeeves.  It's easier than looking up their names. ;)

Photobucket

Dagmar finished her cool car shortly after the baby is born.

Photobucket

At a recent concert, Brian chose to give the crowd another killer solo instead of doing a stage dive.

Photobucket

And it was a really good choice.  All those simoleons will really come in handy.

Photobucket

They decided to take a trip to Twikkii Island.  This photo would look very sweet to me if I didn't know what I know.  I have all the incriminating photos.

Photobucket

They found the witch doctor's hut and fixed his stuff quickly.  For once, he seemed temporarily sane.  Maybe he's finally cured himself.  It's usually a long wait to get a voodoo doll because he's so engrossed in conversation with his friend Dr. Wilson, the volleyball professor.

Photobucket

Dagmar vainly worries about her figure and is afraid to eat very much pineapple surprise, as she doesn't want to end up looking like a sumo wrestler.

Photobucket

Aerosmith put soap bubbles in the sacred fountain, angering the monkey spirit, but Brian and Dagmar seem completely oblivious to any danger or parental responsibility.

Photobucket

These two locals are the main attraction on every community lot in Twikkii Island where they are at constant war with each other.

Photobucket

Yes, the Tuckers are vacationing in style.  Actually, despite all the bonuses, they have very little money left.  They will soon be moving into a new house more suited to a Rock God, so they had to cut back on their vacation budget. 

Photobucket

One of the girls Brian slept with in college called and offered him a discount on home furnishings. Seems that she wants to get back together with him now that he's rich and famous.  I'm sure Brian would enjoy that.

Photobucket

It was unseasonably hot on Twikkii Island.

Photobucket

It was probably too hot to be out in the sun skilling, but I was feeling a bit merciless.

Photobucket

Dagmar got way too hot and passed out.

Photobucket

Fortunately for her, Brian was there to save her with a glass of water.

Photobucket

Sunbathing after dark seems pointless, but smarter, although it must have still been too much sun for these two.

Photobucket

When they got home they were as red as lobsters.  Of course, it didn't prevent them from their normal activities.  If only they would just want to stay loyal to one another, I could like them so much more.

Will the consequences of their bad choices ever catch up with these two?  I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Scoring:
1 point for Brian reaching the top of the Music career, 1 point for adding Blondie to the neighborhood and 1 point for Brian who earned a Sports plaque. The population of Apple Grove is currently 50, with a total population of 52.

OMG!! You are sooo funny! This was a breakneck pace update and I was laughing out loud all the way through it. All those hints (so much funnier than hard evidence). All those men, with all those bouqets ... carnal knowledge ... incriminating photos ... LOL

Thank you so much. :) I was not enjoying myself as much as usual when writing this, because I really don't like slutty, cheating sims. I'm glad it came out alright, though. I was afraid my personal feelings were going to really get in the way of the story to much. ;)

The irony was the great benefit. You are very ironic, in a very balanced way. Never getting mean or really caustic. I love that kind of humour! :)

Well, you're very kind, Nonikk. :) I have had a lot of irony in my life, maybe more than I want sometimes. I think I use sims as free therapy ;)

Don't we all! :D

I'm impressed you went through with Dagmar's LTW even if you didn't want to do it. I never managed with my sims, but I have started trying ;)

Well, I felt pretty disgusted at her. In the future, I may have to do something else with them. I have a mod that randomizes the LTW. I like having it because it makes for more interesting sims, but ugh. In the future I may have to reroll the stupid sims and stuff 200 grilled cheese in them. ;)

Nice job with Dagmar's LTW, Knowledge sim in disguise... Spa businesses seem to be the go-to type of business for those kinds of nefarious dealings. Congrats on all the bonuses this round as well. I love the band names you are using for the kids, super cute, though I'm wondering if Blondie really belongs to Brian or if she may have another daddy...

Thanks, Liz. :)

Yeah, it does seem odd that they would have a blond baby.

ciyrose said...

Aww....you let Dagmar get her LTW...that was nice of you. As RL people I don't get "romancers", but I find I don't mind them as sims....it's probably just as well that you let her now that you have ACR as she'd just do it on lots where you couldn't control her anyway. (Unless of course you make her selectable and stopped her). In game they actually make really good parents a lot of the time, as Brian seems too.

Blondie is cute....either Brian isn't the dad, or someone has blond recessive. At least, even with their romancing type ways Brian and Dagmar are still very much into each other.

Twoflower said...

Yeah, I had mixed feeling about her doing her LTW since she was already married. But, I guess it does make the story more interesting. Some romancers do well as family sims. The Shibatas are both romance sims who seem happy in a committed relationship, which is good because they have so many kids to consider.
