Forbidden Ice Cream

Despite her miserable mood, I’ve been making sure Alice gets all of her homework done, and even telling her to work hard when she’s at school. She’s got a ‘stressed out’ moodlet most of the time. She asked her dad to help her with her homework, but he wanted to rummage in the dustbin.

Then the weekend came. Rather than being a relief, this is actually pretty bad news for Alice. School dinners are her only source of food on most days. And the family is now entirely out of money, as Alice appears to be telling her friend on the phone.

So saturday morning, Alice goes wandering in search of food. The nearby ‘Grandpas’ family lets her in, and she makes a beeline for the ice cream in the fridge.

The Grandpas tell her she is being inappropriate. She ignores them and goes to have a shower. It doesn’t work out for her, though. Again, the Grandpas come to tell her she’s being inappropriate, bursting in while she’s showering. She’s now got a negative moodlet for ‘embarrassment’, which almost negates the mood bonus she got for getting clean. Now no longer hungry or smelly, she is almost content. There’s only one thing left to do.

At which point the Grandpas decide enough is enough, and tell her she has to leave.

    Wow, this is so good it even looks like it’s a viral marketing campaign.

    Gentelman Jim: All sims come with an inseparable mobile phone now.

    Having a cellphone is also actually pretty true-to-life. I work at a a shelter, which means our families are functionally homeless, if not actually right off the street.

    Unlike six or seven years ago, these days, almost all our clients have cells; that means it’s 100% easier for them to stay safe, keep in contact with family, make appointments, get job calls, and generally rebuild their lives.

      I also work at a shelter and I can attest to cell-phones being true to life for functionally homeless people. With companies selling a monthly non contractual service for $30.00 bucks and better yet, pay as you go phones for $15.00 with ten minutes of service built in, it’s easy for anyone with a candy selling or windshield wiping business to keep a phone.

    Wait a second…she’s homeless. How did she get a phone???

    Mean ol’ Grampas. He’s obviously forgotten what it means to be a kid, or grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth.

    Great news on the extension pack.

    Oh dear … :O(( Well … at least she got clean and got a little bit of food in her stomach. Granted … ice cream isn’t really food. :O>

    You write stories very good!

  16. 27 Alexa July 10, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    I like the way you tell the story, you really get into it, the shoots are awesome, and you show that the traits you designate for your sims determine and have an effect on the story’s flow, congrats again

    On the picture in which Alice has a “simoleon” floating above her head, or something like that, there seems to me something that resembles a Cuban Cigar or poop to the left. <.<

  19. 30 cartoonfansparadise August 8, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    I just have a question. I really would like to know…like when I’m visiting my sims work or anywhere, it doesn’t let me see my sim if they’re inside. Or anything inside at all. Just the outside of the building. Does yours all do the same, or what?

  21. 32 thedeadweather September 30, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    i tried doing a father and daughter homeless thing a lot like this, but i didnt tell them 2 do anything, just left them 2 it.
    within a day the father died and a social worker came 2 take care of the daughter and i had 2 start a new game :( lol

    Old Grandpa barged in on a little naked girl showering, and no one mentioned paedophilia in the last 4 months?
