The Cormiers Andersons: Round 5 / Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Warm In A Glass

Darn, I accidently pushed the "Publish" button this morning when not 100% finished with this post. But it is almost finished except a few minor details. I have to leave for awhile today before I can completely finish, but I'll go ahead and leave my post up.


If you've been reading Round 5, you may remember that Charity's new husband Elmer cheated on her right after their wedding when I was playing Sophie Graham's house.  I can't stand the sight of him anymore.

Photobucket

Charity (Bauer) Cormier, 22, Adult Popularity, LTW: Golden Anniversary

Photobucket

Elmer Cormier, 21, Adult Fortune, LTW: Celebrity Chef

Photobucket

I don't know why he had food poisoning, but I actually did allow him to have some comfort soup so he could get well quickly.  I did not have any solid plans for his demise - yet.

Photobucket

And yes, he was quite aware that he cheated as you can see by his memory of the experience.  Charity has not yet found out that he cheated, even as I write this.

Photobucket

I let Charity have a makeover, which is very similar to her hairstyle now.  I think it looks cute on her.

Photobucket

In real life, Charity is in the U.S. Army as a medic.  She is currently serving in Afghanistan, so I am definitely thinking about her and worrying about her daily, but also proud of the work she is doing.  I think she's a very wonderful and talented person.

Photobucket

My simself and Obi came by for a visit soon after she was married and moved into her new house.  She lives right next door to her sister Cassandra at 230 Turnover Terrace in a house which is a reverse floorplan of Cassandra's tiny house.

Photobucket

Charity is very much a dog person, and in real life is very fond of Obi, even though she's allergic to dogs and has to make sure she always washes her hands when she pets him.

Photobucket

Uh-oh, it looks she's going to be having a baby with stupid Elmer.

Photobucket

Her brother Jason also came by for a visit.  They both love to talk about grilled cheese since they both have it as a secondary aspiration. 

Photobucket

Charity tried to rake the leaves with the rake behind her back.  It was pretty amusing to watch. 

Photobucket

Charity is studying while Jason kills Nazi zombies.  If she didn't have a thinking cap on, I would swear she was reading something like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Photobucket

It wasn't long before she gave birth to my first grandsim baby.

Photobucket

It's a little girl, and her name is Mew.  4 out of 5 of my children were obsessed with Pokémon when they were kids, but Charity had the largest and most organized collection of Pokémon cards and memorabilia, so all her kids will be named after Pokémon.  Mew was one of her favorites.

A Mew is a pink cat-like creature with a long skinny tail.  Mew is said to have the DNA of every single Pokémon contained within its body.  

Photobucket

Here is Mew's birth announcement.

Photobucket

Charity's aspiration is popularity, and she made friends with a guy she met in college named Sabastian.

Photobucket

He offered her a nice discount on home furnishings.

Photobucket

Elmer is an inept father.  Mew and Elmer look equally unhappy about their father/daughter relationship.

Photobucket

Meet Miltank, Charity's new cowplant.  Yes, I forgot to mention that Charity took a new job in the Natural Science career track.  There really isn't any room for a cowplant, but we made room for her in what would have been the dining room anyway, because Miltank is just too awesome to leave stuffed in a backpack.

A Miltank is a Pokémon that looks like a cow.  That is probably the only similarity a Miltank has to a Cowplant, as cowplants are not very nice.  Miltanks feed mostly on grass and are fairly placid.  They produce milk that can heal other Pokemon.

Photobucket

Charity doesn't know about Elmer's cheating, but she was more than willing to use the SimVac on him. 

Photobucket

It seems that for some odd reason Elmer is not in love with Charity anymore.  Hmmmm....

Photobucket

He went out to beg for simoleons out on the sidewalk after losing all of his skill points.

Photobucket

I guess maybe using 5 SimVacs on him may have been excessive, lol, but I was mad at him.

Photobucket

Miltank was willing to help me out by offering him some delicious cake.

Photobucket

And I guess he did smell pretty delicious when he returned home from work as a waiter.

Photobucket

Elmer tried to push Miltank away... but.... oopsie.  Where did he go?

And yes, I realize that I have now broken a cardinal rule of the Prosperity Challenge.  You can't just take a loss of points for killing off a sim, because you're just not allowed to do it.  Well, it's done, and I'm not really that sorry, except I really don't like to be a rule-breaker.  I did consider my options, and I just couldn't stand Elmer anymore and couldn't imagine a way in which I could stand playing him anymore.

Photobucket

Anyway... Charity doesn't seem too broken up over Elmer's sudden disappearance.  She just got promoted to Animal Linguist, so maybe she'll be able to talk to Miltank to ask her why she is now full of milk.

Photobucket

Little Mew grew to be a toddler.  She also seemed relatively unaffected by Elmer's disappearance.

Photobucket

Here's Charity again petting a dog.  This one is pretty scary looking.  Go wash your hands, Charity.

Photobucket

Charity was soon in love with Sabastian, the college guy who offered her the home furnishings discount.

Photobucket

I see he's going to stick with another orange shirt, so orange is obviously his favorite color.  I like that he made it so easy for me to guess.

Photobucket

He moved in, bringing a little bit of cash.

Photobucket

Sabastian is a knowledge sim, but has a want of marrrying off 6 children.  Wow, that's a lot of kids to add to the neighborhood.  Oh well, at least he's not wanting to woohoo everyone in Apple Grove.

Photobucket

Sabastian proposed the night he moved in.

Photobucket

And Charity looked very happy.

Photobucket

They were married right away in a very simple home ceremony with Charity in plaid pajamas.

Photobucket

Nany Shenene was called to watch Mew the next morning, and they were soon headed off on a honeymoon to Twikkii Island.

Photobucket

It was a tiny vacation cottage, but it was perfect since it was just the two of them.

Photobucket

I see that Sabastian is yet another sim who wore a sweater to Twikkii Island.  I really need to help these sims pack.  If only he had brought the orange Hawaiian shirt he wore in college.

Photobucket

This was something new, seeing the unsavory charlatan pickpocketing an NPC.  I felt sorry for the poor girl.

Photobucket

Charity and Sabastian have a strong relationship, and it definitely helps that they share a mutual love of cheese.

Photobucket

I was glad to see that Sabastian at least packed a swimsuit.  They really enjoyed sunbathing on their vacation.

Photobucket

When they got home, Sabastian tested a new hypnotic treatment on a rich industrialist who had a fear of golfing.

Photobucket

Unfortunately, the experimental treatment failed when the woman began to believe she was a golf ball.  He was fired for his failure to help her.

Photobucket

Even though he was fired, he still thought he had an amazing week and is hoping his next week will be the same.  That's a positive attitude - possibly a little too positive, but I guess his marriage and honeymoon more than made up for the loss of his job.

Photobucket

Charity has been promoted to Unnatural Crossbreeder.  Maybe she can now invent even more breeds of Pokemon.

Photobucket

BTW, this is a view of their tiny house.

Photobucket

As we look in the window, it seems that she and Sabastian may be adding another child to their very tiny house.

Photobucket

Mew got a makeover, which seems fitting for her.

Photobucket

Charity decided to finally milk her cowplant and drink some of the milk.

Photobucket

It seems kind of gross to be drinking her late husband, but it must not be too bad, or she maybe she can't taste the stupid because she downs the milk quickly.

Photobucket

And it had quite an immediate and powerful effect on her, adding 5 more years to her life.

Photobucket


And that makes Sabastian is technically only 4 years younger than her instead of 9 years.

I'm not really sure if I should be calling this a Prosperity Challenge neighborhood anymore or scoring anything since I broke one of the cardinal rules of the challenge, but I guess there really aren't any Prosperity Police out there to make sure I follow every rule. I may be able to satisfy at least the spirit of the law in Round 6, if not the exact letter of the law, so maybe you can bear with me for a little while longer despite my rule-breaking ways. ;)   

All that said, this is the end of Round 5!!! :)


Scoring: -1 point for Elmer's aspiration failure (even though I'm not sure the shrink actually came, I'm not 100% sure), 1 point for adding Mew to the neighborhood, 1 point for adding Sabastian to the neighborhood, 3 points for Charity earning all of her Lifetime Aspiration Benefits.  The current population of Apple Grove is 58, with a total population of 61.

As long as no one feel sorry for Elmer, no one is going to tell about your rule breaking. Lol, I found it funny that you decided to kill him! And little Mew is just adoreable (:

Thanks, Chammalia. :) I'm glad you're not judging me too much for my rule-breaking. ;)

Mrs. Stuffy said...

LOL, that was REAL funny! *psst* I am not feeling sorry for Elmer. I really like how you have added so much life into your sims. I do, however, think you know TOO much about Pokemon. ;)

Thanks, Mrs. Stuffy. :) I'm glad you aren't too upset about Elmer's demise.

And I can reassure you about the Pokemon - that Google and Jason are my main sources for my Pokemon information. I promise I don't have a secret stash of Pokemon cards. ;)

bbop said...

OMG I used to love pokemon when I was little! Can I please, please request Blissey as a possible name? She was always my favorite, lol!

and I love when sims go on vacation and get into trouble.

congrats on finishing the round!

Who says it wasn't an accident that Elmer happened to be eaten by the cowplant?! :0

Liz said...

I think that if killing off Elmer made you happier playing -- that's within the spirit of the rules. Glad to see Charity is happier and better off with Sebastian as a husband. Thanks for all the Pokemon info too, I never really cared for them too much, but it was funny to read in relation to your simmies!

P.S. I hope the real Charity is safe and sound and God bless all our service men and women fighting over there

SK said...

If Elmer was just that hungry, it's not YOUR fault that the cow plant happened to be out in the open and offering a delicious piece of cake...

;)

Also, Mew is adorable! I can't wait to see how much happier Charity will be with her new hubby!

Nonikk63 said...

Now I understand why I didn't know about the murder - I had somehow missed this update!! :)The more fun it made now. I enjoyed your evil plotting ;-)

I somehow foresee an abrupt ending for Sophie if she doesn't change her ways. Don't tell me you haven't felt tempted ... ;-)

BTW - Little Mew really is adorable. :)

ciyrose said...

WOW.....I never imagined Elmer would get eaten...well until I saw the cowplant. Awww....I feel kind of bad for him, and I know I'm the only one. I still maintain Sofie put a spell on him, but hey, he's the one that was stupid enough to go for the cake.

Sebastian seems like a better husband and father than Elmer, so it works out well in the end.

Mew is super duper cute, I love her pink hair. :)

Twoflower said...

Yeah, I kind of broke a major rule by telling Elmer to eat the cake. I just couldn't stand him anymore. I don't usually kill off sims, so I did feel kind of bad about it later, especially since I let Sophie live.

Sabastian is a more likeable sim so far, and definitely seem better able to deal with family life.
