Second: The poll was really tight. I held it open as long as I could before the craving of playing the Starks got too bad. As most probably know Lalita won, but only by one vote! It was that tight D:
Third: I'm pretty beat up after a hectic week. Uni has started and I'm still working full shifts at work so... There will probably be more typos and grammatical errors than usual in this update. Sorry!
Last: There was a lot of snow, loads, so the gen 2 kids traveled to China for some Rn'R and bonding time. There Vincent went on adventures, Lee beat Almas in martial arts and Lalita nearly drowned.
Rajan and Tracie grew old, a surprise to both me and them as time has a way of passing a bit too quickly. Almas met Trace Britton, a charming musician with a devious twinkle in his eye. In the end Lalita grew into a teenager and began her epic quest (
So, Lalita barely won the heirpoll and will have the dubious honour of continuing generation two of the Stark's legacy.
Lalita: Aah, yaaay... ehem.
You could try and muster a less fake smile next time.
Lalita: Salute! Do you ha-
Fredrico: It wasn't in yesterday, or the day before than, and its not in today either.
Lalita: Have you felt the degrees out lately? It is freezing cold! Almost so I expect to see polarbears in the street, y'know?
Lalita: And then I says, I says, "frankly I am freezing to death here. My teeth are chattering and-"
Lalita's only friend is the storeowner, Fredrico, but I think he's mostly just concerned about her wellbeing.
Tracie finally maxed out painting. Now she only has sculpting and engineering left to go. Heh...
Almas and Trace met up for a date at the pizzeria in town that I spiffed up a little bit.
Almas: Come on, mama wants a new toy!
Almas: Almost, steady now, stee-
Almas: I can't believe it, I lost it!
Almas: I will end you claw, I know where you live so you better watch it.
Quite contrary to what I thought Trace's personality would be like; he'd rather spend some time in the library than on the dancefloor or the heaps of entertainment equipment I had put in there.
Almas: I'm sorry Trace, I couldn't get that bear for you.
If you look carefully you can see that toy car fly all by itself.
You sneaky little fairy *points*
Lalita: Dad, I want to learn how to drive!
Rajan: Sure pumpkin, I'll help you out!
Lalita: Do I get my own car for my sweet sixteens?
Lalita: But daaaaaad!
Lee: Coffee, loads of coffee. More coffee!!
That's me when studying for finals... and whenever else, actually, when I think about it.
Lola: Cats sure does suck!
Lewis: Yeah, but birds rule though!
O-keh! *backs off slowly*
There is still so much snow!
Lalita: They didn't have the elixir today, either. What if I never get it? What if I actually have to put in effort and learn how to make it myself? *worries*
Vincent: Hey baby, you err... you sure you don't want to join me exercising today? You've gotten a bit more... global around the waist if you know what I mean.
Lee: I'm pregnant.
Lola: I sure hope I don't reincarnate as a dungbeetle in my next life.
Vincent: What? You're really pregnant?!
Vincent: I'm gonna be a dad?
Lee: That's the plan!
Vincent: My wife is the best~
Lee: My husband is the best~
Lalita: I'm gonna hurl.
Almas: Yeeeah. These pancakes aren't looking as delicious anymore, that's for sure.
Lee and Vincent aren't the only ones to be awfully cutesy this wintery season.
Tracie: Is that hitting the spot, honey?
Rajan: Yep, yep, that's it. You got magical hands, bunny.
Tracie: Uhm.... er, hi?
Lola: Heya there, human!
Tracie doesn't know Lola very well, so she's pretty shy around her.
Lalita: This place is so old-fashioned.
You're... you're in your bathing suit in the middle of winter.
Lalita: Yeah so?
Fredrico: No, sorry. Is she wearing a bathingsuit?
Fredrico: Er, sorry, but you're not allowed to sleep here.
Somehow I don't think she cares, Fredrico.
Lee: Oooooh no, nonono.
Lee: I'm home with your granddaughter, after having to drive myself through the blizzard all alone to the hospital to birth.
Tracie: That's nice, hun.
Olivia Stark, daughter of Lee and Vincent. She's a virtuoso who hate's the outdoors and love the colour black.
Rajan: I can't believe I am a grandfather... about freaking time.
Fredrico: Is she ever going to go home?
Tracie: I bought two tickets to the showcasing of Mona Sim that is being exhibited next weekend, do you want to go?
Lee: Oh gee mums, you're awesome! +
Tracie: Ooooh, I am so excited now, I just feel like dancing all over the living room!
Tracie: This would have been such a camera moment, if we actually had a camera.
Tracie and Lee are BBFs forever. She has a much better relationship to her daughter in law than any of her actual bloodkin xD
Lee: Won't you ever be quieeeeeet!!!!
The fact that Vincent work so much and Lee is stuck with all the baby shifts is going on her nervers I think :/
When he finally does get home, though, he makes sure to spend some time with her.
Rajan is finally a Top Gun, one step away from becoming an Astronaut and completing his LTW. Looking quite spiffy there!
Lalita: Another day, another chance to completely change my life~
Fredrico: Is she actually doing her homework here now?
Lalita: Hey Fredrico, what year was Monte Vista grounded again? I keep on forgetting.
Lalita: I'M STAAARVIIING!
Fredrico: I really can't help you with that one.
Lalita: FEED ME!
Almas: Feed yourself!
Lalita: Fine, be like that then. I'm off to my prom.
Almas: Have fun~
Lalita: Yeah, "fun".
She actually had quite a bit of fun. She got elected promqueen, and fell in love with Goopy, yes, THAT Goopy GilsCarbo!
Somehow Tracie with a chainsaw is making me feel a bit uneasy.
Vincent: I'm so gonna scare the moeny out of her.
Lee: Oh man, I am soooo embarrassed right now, seriously.
Lee: Actually it makes me feel really excited.
Trace: Whaaaat, your mum can cook?!
Apparently, Tracie having a cooking skill, is the current wild celebrity gossip in town.
Almas: So, I was thiiinkiiiiing~
Almas: That we should go steady~
Trace: Oh yeah, I so got this.
Rajan: If you think you can touch my daughter in my house, you're quite mistaken young man.
Almas: Daaad :C
Your dad will be most displeased with you and your proud little smirk Almas.
Lalita: Did you two just-? In the washroom?
Almas: Go to bed, Lalita.
Vincent: Enough strutting like a peakock and more pumping like a man!
Trace: All I know is pain-
Lee: Oh my :)
You're enjoying getting scared too much, Lee.
Trace: You can put her down with me Mr Stark, I can play with her. Mrs Dino loves getting new playmates.
I send them out to do drivers lessons and when I pan over to them I find them playing paper, rock, scissors and reading. Tsk, you need to learn how to be stricter with her, Rajan.
Lalita: Look, a weirdly pulsating, unidentified seed! I better pick it up and put it in my pocket.
Tracie/Lalita: Yaaaaay, cake!
Finally time for Olivia's birthday!
She got everything from her dad, but she's still adorable :3
It finally starts feeling like a legacy when you can get three generations in one shot!
Vincent: Come to daddy, you good little girl. Already walking like a pro.
Stranger: One day I will be part of this happy family.
No. No you won't.
No update without some toddler pictures. But she's such a cute, goodnatured child.
Glasses: I can feel the chemistry all up in this.
Almas: Tell me about it~
Glasses: I take it back, you're not sexy!
Aren't you feeling a bit lonely there, Tracie?
Tracie: Nope! I have pumpkin pie!
I see your point.
Lalita: If you say no to me today I think my mind is going to burst into a billion little shards, seriously.
Fredrico: Actually, we got it in this morning. I have it back in the storage room.
Lalita: You're not kidding me, are you?
Fredrico: No, it will actually be nice to finally have a day without you coming in here, sleeping on my furniture, making boobytraps for my customers, eat on my books and stain my kettles.
Lalita: Just give me the bottle, man.
Lalita: Oh crap, I dropped it!
Lalita: But I think its working, unless my stinkcloud just got a very fancy colour.
Lalita: Freaking yeah!
Lalita: Now I'll get my revenge!
Fredrico: Oh no!
Lalita: Oh shi-
Fredrico: And don't you think you can get a trick on Fredrico again, young miss!
Lalita: I'm not feeling too good...
Lalita: Ah, my sinuses has never been this cleared.
Lalita: AH! I can't belive my trick didn't work! D:
Lalita: Hehe, you got me good there bestie.
Lalita: Here it comes again! +
Fredrico: Watch the parchment.
Rajan: You're all glittery.
Lalita: I'm a fairy dad, you don't know anything.
Lalita: Dad, dad, look what I can do.
Rajan: Don't fly in the house, pumpkin.
Rajan: You're grounded.
Lalita: But daaaad!
She went sulking into her little fairyhouse after that.
I've never played a fairy before, I'm so excited.
Olivia: Wanna play?
Sunday morning with dad playing violent videogames while wife and daughter watches excitedly.
Lee: So how is the crime career working out for you hon?
Vincent: Great! I'm actually doing really well as of late.
Lee: You know, I've really wante a new diamondring as of late.
Is this a suitable conversation to have in front of your impressionable daughter?
But lets zoom in on the last picture.
Lewis: Catlife sucks some times.
Vincent: Why are you glowing, babes?
Lee: You're glowing too, actually.
Vincent: Holy crap, since when did you become a glowing abomination?
Lalita: Yesterday, and I'm a fairy, actually. Stupid brother.
Lalita: We have the eternal question of: gravestone or urn?
Lalita: But you will never want to choose urn, do you hear me? Never!
Lalita: For what ruleless anarchy will we live in if everyone had each their urn, and just carried dead people around, huh?
Lalita: Not a world I would live in, that's for damn sure.
Nice! That was a nice little speech you held there, Lalita. Erm.
Lalita: I don't like this fairy aura at all. It is hurting my retinas.
Lalita: I made the most awesome fairyprank earlier today!
Lalita: So who is the most awesome? Me!
Goopy: *yaaaawn* I'm actually a good sim and don't hold much with such tricksy pranks.
Goopy GilsCarbo is actually good looking in this game. I can't even.
Lalita: I'm sorry for bragging about being a bad kid, Goopy.
Goopy: Yeah, you better be too! Or I'll tell Mr Stark.
Rajan: Have my youngest gotten corrupted by these ragtag boys too, now?
Almas: Chill out dad, they got together at prom actually.
Rajan: Why I never-
Almas: Just don't look at them.
Goopy finally got chased out and Lalita went back to pretend to be a good girl skilling it up with her dad.
And are you sure you really want to sleep there, Lewis, considering what happened last time?
And I'll end it there with the cutest interaction in the whole freakin' game, I swear <333
I'm thinking about moving the Starks over to Enkjær Island made by Fagersims. Its an absolutely gorgeous world and I need to try it out with my current favourite family <3
Thank you all for reading, once again! You guys are always the best :3
