Take Two: What Went Wrong, What Went Right pt.1

So this is the second time I work on this post. I had one but unfortunately I accidentally clicked on something while on this page and lost all of what I had originally written. Which sucks. Apparently this doesn’t auto-save which sucks even more. I wrote a ton and added a lot of pictures. I was hoping to get this post out before midnight since it’s been a couple of days since I’ve made a post. School has already started for me. By the time I get home I have homework and studying to do. I can now empathize with my teen Sims. I’m going to try to get this post out by said self-given deadline. So time to start burning that pre-midnight oil. (Darn this post isn’t going to even be a fraction of the lost one, I was really feeling when I was typing. Now I just feel sad). So without further ado….

Still not up to current events. The story so far…

When we last were here Sage and Tiara had just gotten married at the über lovely park by the sea on the upper east side. It was an intimate ceremony. Only the closest acquaintances and longest known friends received an invitation. Of course, the paparazzi found their way into the wedding and let themselves in.
Following in Sage and Tiara’s footsteps, Eva and Ricky became engaged!
Soon after that Tiara found out she was expecting her first child with Sage.
ImageAround this time baby Addie was already a toddler.
Image For some unknown reason Eva had a dinner plate superimposed onto her hand.
But things with Ricky were on the rocks, or should  nothing has changed. Eva had worried that Ricky would not take part of their now small family. His sights were set on owning a bar, working on the next best selling novel, and lounging around the house. His only wish that included Adelaide was to name a drink after her which was a pretty unique desire to have, and first of its kind for me to encounter.
One a particular evening Tiara (once again) had a celebrity thing to attend. Sage had to work on his symphony and logic skills. Lala and Ashton were out on the town, while Ricky for once took Addie out to the park.
Image
Sage and Eva found themselves alone in the house. They had remained good friends after the break-up. The emotions they had stored away, their relationship they hid from the public, their love they did not get enough time to express, it was swimming in the air between them.
Sage had a wife, a baby on the way. Things were perfect, or he wanted it to be perfect and felt they should be, that he should feel good and settled in.
Eva had a daughter already, she was engaged to Ricky.
Will they risk their current relationships, weeks, months, of dating and marriage to reignite that once roaring flame?

So I’ve decided to break this post up and use the material that was lost in the next post. See you then!

Another Dirty Toilet, Another Life Event

School is starting soon. I hope I can keep up with all the work, studying, and this blog. This is pretty fun to do. I played a lot last night and I can’t wait to post up the pics and share what happened.

Still not up to current events. The story so far..

A lot has happened around these days. Sage entered into adulthood, Eva and Ricky’s first child together, Adelaide, was born, they witnessed a Sim die, Ricky moved in… The surge of hormones and love that vibrated throughout the household made Sage realize he has to take his life into motion. . . Whenever he attempted to ask Tiara on a date or ask her over she would respond that she is too busy to do that. So he marched over to her house, went into her dirty bathroom, got on one knee and …
Image
Devin stood by the whole time… along with the dirty toilet. Image
It wasn’t the best location but, baby, it doesn’t matter. Sage wanted her right then and there, he wanted to start a life with his long time girlfriend (whom, he omitted to tell, he cheated on.) It didn’t have to be a fancy restaurant, or a beautiful landmark, it was the moment then and there that mattered. He was swept up in the moment by her, and she by him. The moment was right, everything felt right… or else he wanted it to. The break up with Eva took a toll on him. She was the first person to see him for who he was, she even saw him in his red mouse slippers!
Image
Important things seem to happen in the bathroom for the Maxim household.
Image
Tiara gladly said, “Yes!”
The wedding was soon underway… as things always are in The Sims.
But before that, Eva had to celebrate her entrance into adulthood! It was also held at the topnotch Prosper Room VIP section.
Image
After Eva’s intimate birthday party, Sage had to prepare for the big day!Image
He put on a black tux, with a matching black bow-tie and was ready to go! Since the proposal was so lack luster in location department, he decided to make it up by holding the marriage in a beautiful setting.
ImageImageThe now Evangelista-Maxim household had a small picnic after the wedding. Of course, the paparazzi were there to capture the whole event.
Image The bride and the groom shared a hot make-out session after the wedding. Lala, Tiara’s mother, enjoyed the scene, while Eva partied it up with guests.
It was soon to be my surprise when they moved in together to find that Eva had two other cohabitants living with her. Especially when one was another man. No matter. All of a sudden seven Sims became my responsibility. I wanted to try it out and see how it went.
Soon after the marriage, Ricky proposed to finally go steady with Eva. Of course they were once again in a bathroom and accompanied by yet another dirty toilet.
Image
They were to no longer be friends with benefits and a baby, but an actual couple… Are Ricky and Eva walking on the stepping stones of starting a family and settling down?
Was it a good idea that the second woman is now living with her ex-boyfriend’s new wife?
Can Sage forget the history he and Eva had together? Was it fate that keep bringing them together or fate causing them to keep having awkward encounters?
And why the hell does nobody clean the toilets?

Rewind With A Dash of Sage

SO we (if there’s anybody out there /crickets) need to rewind a bit. I’m just writing these events on the spot, based on stuff I did weeks ago. We are quickly catching up to current events but so far a lot has happened between today and where I last left off. From time to time I might have to rewind after I realize I skipped a particular event that I am compelled to post up. I have a galore of screenshots from the game & I would like to use them. I’m still trying to figure all of this out. It’s fun and a great way to keep track of what my pioneer Sims did long after they’re dead. I am anticipating the day they die. BUT I shall go into that in a post that covers current events! >__< If I read this and manage to jog my memory. Side-note: I use the Sims 3, Late Night expansion, & Ambitions expansion.

So without further ado…
Sage is a party animal and visits hot spots and doesn’t leave till closing.
Image
Image
After moving into a new apartment, Sage celebrated his birthday at the lounge where Ricky plays in the Prosper Room. It was an all celebrity event. Despite their differences Eva & Sage remain friends, she invited all of his closest friends and co-workers.
Image
Image
Image

Right there and then, a Sim died! Was that a foreshadow of what is soon to occur to Sage?A crazy coincidence? Either way, the party went on without a hitch and even the one and only Grim Reaper joined in the fun.
Image
Despite their history and what felt like destiny, they still remained good friends.
Image They had a quick dance before Eva headed off to work.
While Eva was at work, Sage went on a hot date with his girlfriend, Tiara.
Image
After they both arrived home, Sage & Eva prepared to head out to a pool party they were both invited to.
Image
Both of them partied off into dawn. On their way back home the sky became ominous and dark!
ImageImageImage
A meteor (?) crashed!! First one I’ve ever seen in the game. Also, the biggest one!
Sage’s fame continues to grow especially after raging birthday party, followed by his appearance at the pool party. Paparazzi follow him around, Sims stop him to ask for his autograph & to take his picture.
Image
Back at home Eva enjoys a new freebie Sage received in the mail.
Image
Image
A lot of crazy things happened around this time for Sage, and the whole household.
These events will be continued in the next post. The events that lead up to these is, Always The Second Woman? The events that occur after these can be found in New Apartment, New Life…? If that makes sense…
I decided to break these events up so they are easier to digest and not so cluttered.
I really like incorporating pictures to the blog.

 

New Apartment, New Life…?

Around this time I figured out how to add custom music! : D

Still not up to current events. The story so far...

At dusk one day, Eva and Sage were robbed! A burglar broke into their apartment, the alarm woke everybody up.
Sage fought him and tried to keep him around while the cops arrived. In past games even though my Sims lived right across the street from the police, the burglar managed to get away. I was not allow to let this happen again! The police arrived promptly and arrested him! Yay~
Image
After the affairs and cheating Eva & Sage have saved up plenty of money to finally move into a new apartment. They still remained in the same neighborhood.

Image
The new apartment is bigger & better. They canvased the city for the one that offered the perfect accommodations, this one even has a mini gym in the bottom!  Sage and Tiara began going steady. Eva wanted to take things with Ricky to the next level. She hatched a plan to ensure her connection to Ricky. She soon became pregnant with hers and Ricky’s baby. It was to be their first child together, and overall.
Image
She shared her news with Sage and he was elated for her. Both following separate paths and still remained good friends through it all.
Image
ImageHaha she may be pregnant but she still sports pumps!
Eva asked Ricky to break up with his Wife, no second later were they arch enemies and coincidentally a rumor was started about Eva. As usual, she lost many friends but she kept the ones that really mattered, she denied the rumors to her friends and befriended the ones she lost. In a harsh city like Bridgeport where rumors spread like wild fire, one is constantly under scrutiny. No matter, Ricky moved in, and she gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
Image
Soon after she publicly disgraced herself because of it. The tabloids were covered with slander about her illegitimate child out of wedlock. This was ridiculous! This is the turning point in Eva’s career when she realized what the paparazzi say about her is a load of bull. Who cares what the tabloids say? She has a healthy baby girl and is beginning a family with Ricky. She does not need to follow the mold and date, marry, then have children. She was a successful, independent, government figure that wanted to begin a family. So screw the tabloids.
When baby Adelaide was born Eva quickly took to being a mother, she awoke at odd times to feed and change Addie. Image

Eva was now a young adult, at the peak of her career, and entering motherhood.

Always The Second Woman?

Still not up to current events. What has happened so far...
Sage became a celebrity in Bridgeport in no time. He joined the music field and Eva applied for a job at City Hall. Sage was invited to a lot of celebrity parties. In a particular pool party is where he met A-list celeb Tiara Evangelista. They were both young, party animals looking for a companion. Sage and Tiara talked and dated a few times then Sage had the courage to pucker up a kiss! ImageIn their upper east side apartment, Sage fell in love. However! Around the same time Sage began messing around with none other than his roommate, Eva! Sage was getting daily invitations to celebrity hosted parties and events. He was the affection of every Sim out there, never once publicly disgracing himself. He was slick, avoided public affection with Eva, only publicly making out and hot tubing with his sweet arm candy at parties, venues, and all around town. Sage’s schedule and Eva’s did not match. Her days at work were usually his days off. The intense make out and woohoo fests were kept under wraps in their tiny apartment. He was her first woohoo and she was his. Her closeness to Sage lead Eva onto the radar of many paparazzi’s, she now was recognized at some bars, allowed access that were once restricted, received freebies, and at times gifts. Eva, however, did not want the fame, nor did she want to be the second woman. She occasionally attended a lounge in her neighborhood where a pianist caught her eye. His name was Ricky Bailey. He was young, hot, incredibly talented on the piano… But not single. What luck! Bailey was married to his best friend, Ti. But that did not mean he didn’t have a wandering eye. His eyes wandered right onto now B-list celeb. She frequented the lounge almost daily, and she fell in love… Image One day she got a warning her that the people were starting to catch on. But she didn’t care. She was in love, young, she even got tattoos! They publicly dated and were photographed numerous times outside of a game. Image Eva came clean to Sage and he was furious at her. How could she? How could she date another man while, he was in love with her? Soon after that Sage broke it off…

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog! There’s not much here, I am trying to get the hang of it.

So I shall use this space to make an extended about me. I also like watching anime, reading manga, I am currently really into BigBang <3

I really enjoy drawing, painting my nails, shopping, & shoes.

 

Background Information

Eva D’Oro came to the city in hopes of becoming the Leader of The Free World. She met Sage Maxim while in college. Both attended an indie concert, after going out for coffee they discovered they both loved sushi and the same band. Eva’s charisma charmed Sage and they quickly became friends. Their spirit of youth and fun lead them to a city full of adventure, danger, charm, beauty, vampires, and a raging night life. Sage always enjoyed playing the guitar and dreamed of one day joining an orchestra. His good looks, magic tongue and fingers, made him an instant celebrity. Eva, however, stayed under the celebrity lime light for a while.
