Mattsgården year 71-74, Five Points

« previous entry | next entry »
Mar. 27th, 2010 | 10:25 am


Welcome to a new season of Mattsmyra Prosperity Challenge! We start where we always do, at Mattsgården, the Mattsson homestead.

Previously at Mattsgården, Agnes Ceder moved in to get married to Georg Mattsson, the heir to Mattsgården. Agnes got pregnant on the honey moon. It was a really cold winter, just like IRL, and everyone got frozen when Loke and Barbara celebrated the Golden Anniversary.
Loke continued to work as Captain Hero, Barbara climbed the Science ladder, and Agnes and Georg tried to find jobs in their desired careers, but didn't succeed.



Georg Mattsson found his desired job in the teaching career, as a High School Teacher. The position requires some charisma, and Georg gladly learns. He’s Knowledge after all.


With the new round for Mattsmyra, we shift our name statistics for the lists valid for 2009.

So – to repeat – first I roll a dice. Odd number means Popular Name list, Even means Common name list. Another list of random numbers between 1-100 determines which name is chosen.

 

His very pregnant wife Agnes, born Ceder, looks for a job, too.

No openings in the Slacker career, so she starts writing a children’s book instead. Her OTH is Film and Literature, so it’s fitting, especially now when she’s expecting.



Barbara, Georg’s mother, has a day off, and spends it playing the piano. She does that every free moment.



The spring is approaching and the snow is slowly melting away, just like here. Georg gets promoted to Guest Lecturer at the University and awaits the birth of his first-born.



But first, Loke dies on March 20th, ‘71, at an age of 72. He leaves in Platinum, thanks to his reaching his LTW a while back. 1p!
His next of kin is his wife Barbara, 70,
His daughter Emilia Carlsson, 40, with husband Patric, 40, and their son Love, 8,
His daughter Elisabeth Burlin, 32, with husband Kevin, 32, and their children Rut, 11, and Filip, 2
His son Georg, 29, with wife Agnes, 28,
And his son Hugo, 25, with fiancée Engla Ramirez, 25.

 

The next morning it’s time – a kitchen birth.
It’s a girl, and she gets Common name no 30 – Jenny. She is born on March 8th ’72 at 7.39 am. 1p!



Agnes is the daughter of CAS child Maria Berg and her husband Orlando Ceder, who we all know. She’s the grand-daughter of CAS adult Magnus Berg. She has two sisters, Sofie Montell of Tallåsen, and Lena Benett of Rävkullen.



Georg is the grandson of CAS adult Dan Mattsson and son of CAS toddler Loke and his townie wife Barbara Lennestål.
He’s got two sisters and a brother, Emilia of Los, Elisabeth of Ovanåker, and Hugo of Bluewater.



The same day, Barbara reaches the top of the Science career, finally, and will have Platinum mood for the rest of her life. That’s not too long, I’m afraid. Anyway, 2p!



Georg’s career comes along well, too, and he’s promoted to High School Principal, with the help of a game of Scrabble, where he laid down a seven-letter-word.

He brought his sister Elisabeth with him home.



Here comes the first edition of Agnes’ book! It’s a bestseller. What a debut! Keep your eyes out for more and remember the name Agnes Mattsson, children’s books author.

 

Now - Jenny's birthday.
Here she is, all grown up to toddler. I believe she takes after his father a lot, with wide eyes, square jaw and a big mouth. We’ll see when she gets older. She's a mean Scorpio, despite her innocent looks.




And we spice up this toddler birthday with a complimentary picture of Kevin B, Jenny’s uncle (since he’s married to her aunt Elisabeth), for all his fans out there. 



The next day it’s time for Barbara to join Loke in the great beyond. She even looks like she looks forward to it. The date is the 31st of May ’74, and Barbara passes in an age of 73. She leaves behind two daughters and two sons with families, including her granddaughter Jenny, 2 years.

The hula girls didn’t fit in this small room, but they are here too, as an indication that Barbara left in Platinum. 1p!



And since they cannot sleep anyway after Barbara’s passing, Georg and Agnes spends the night skilling and tending to the garden.

Little Jenny is cute :) Hopefully she won't get too many of her father's looks, esp. his mouth.

Farewell Loke and Barbara. You'll be missed I'm sure. Do you have any CAS sims left now?

I'm afraid Jenny has her father's mouth, but it looks better on girls. Both her aunts (Emilia and Elisabeth have it too).

I've got four CAS left from originally 17 - Daniel Mattsson, Loke's brother, and three red-heads from Korskrogen - Daniel, Maximilian and Livia Johansson. All the boys are CAS children, and Livia is a CAS toddler.

Ah, it is a change of generations now. I guess the time has come for that. And of course like almost every neighborhood, this one descends into an abundance of evil toddlers. -_-;

Haha, I know you don't like evil sims, but I don't mind much. They make for better drama :)
It's amazing to see this house, that has always been crowded, now only inhabited by three sims!

I was kind of thinking while reading it that the house itself must have come a long way since the beginning when Dan could barely afford to put walls and a roof around his kids and they hung out on the lawn most of the time. Now the house looks like it's decorated quite nicely and very cozy.

Thank you! The house is cozy and nice for up to four people, but there have always been more living there. But now, it might be fine for the diminished Mattsson family :)

The CAS are falling out one after another now. No wonder, though, we're already at year 71-74!

yay, back to the Mattsson clan. I will sorely miss Loke and Barbara, they've been around forever! Too bad Loke didn't get to meet his granddaughter before he passed on. Jenny looks like a real cutie, sometimes extreme features like Georg's lips look weird on toddlers. I can't wait to see how she grows up.

oh, and big YAY for the Kevin B cameo! ::fans self::

It will be fun to see generation 3 grow up. Some of them are already adults of course, but most are not even born

By Barbara and Loke....4 of the CAS sims left. Wow....it really is the passing of the torch to those born in-game....

Jenny looks really cute...we'll have to see how she grows up, but right now she's adorable.

Wow, it's sad all the CAS sims are going!

Nice to have a new sim born when others die.

And hi! I'm catching up.

Jenny is cute as a tot. Hopefully she stays that way. ;)
=( Loke and Barbara both died. But they both lived good lives with lots of family. The picture with grim stuck in the wall is somewhat funny in a morbid-ish way. [=

THis house, that has always been so full has only three inhabitants now. It's strange.
I hope Jenny will combine the traits from her father in a way that doesn't hurt the readers' eyes ;)
