Storfallet year 97-100 - Starting generation 5

« previous entry | next entry »
Jan. 25th, 2014 | 11:31 pm

Previously, Saga finished University and moved in to her own tiny apartment in Bluewater. She barely had room for her bed. She dreamt of being married to Alexander Johansson and eventually found a job in Oceanography.

7912 y97

Apartment 5 year 97-98, 99-100 Wednesday-Thursday, Monday-Tuesday
Saga Rodiek, 25, Fortune


7913

Saga studies for her promotions and longs for Alexander, who is still in Uni


7914

She has caght some kind of flu, and is forced to wear a strange uniform at work.


7915

In between work sessions, she's working on her friends list.


7916

Or she's skilling. Whale tracking is a demanding job!


7917

Another friend under her belt, as they say in English. In my barbaric Nordic ears it sounds like she just bedded them...


7918

And by earning another Body point, she's fully capable of taking on the next step of her career, and she's more than ready to welcom her lover, and nowadays fiancé to her apartment!


7919 Rodiek y99

Alexander has moved in to his beloved Saga Rodiek after Uni


7920 New hair

And finally he can get  his trademark hair back. No one is happier than Alexander! Except maybe the audience, that can recognize him again!


7921 Move

The tiny, tiny apartment Saga has lived in for the last four years is really not big enough for two, and especially not for a wedding, so a move to Mattsmyra is orchestrated. They buy the homestead Storfallet, where we had two townie couples before. The only one left of those are Kerstin Tidholm, the one who passes out on the floors of out apartments in Bluewater.


7922 Cute

Aren’t they cute?! Let’s get going with that wedding! Saga has waited for four years!!


7923 Enemies

We saw it forming already at Cristopher Bardh’s apartment, but now we have a full-fledged enemy-ship between Caroline Johansson, Alexander’s mother, and Maud Bardh, his uncle Simon’s new wife


7924 Wedding

The guests are summoning in front of the wedding arc. It’s a beautiful September day!


7925 Alex tree

Now for an interesting question to the SimGodess’ fellow simmers – Alexander is son to Noel Bardh, who is son to Thea Mattsson, who’s half-brother is Evert Myhr.


7926 Saga tree

Saga is the daughter of Agnes Myhr, who is the daughter of Evert Myhr, Thea Mattsson’s half-brother. What is such a family relation called? Cousins once removed? Second cousins once removed? Or twice removed? Whatever, they are actually family!


7927 Wedding

And it’s a fantastic wedding ceremony – just look at the faces of the Rodiek family, they love this!


7928 17sep99

And on the 17th of September ’99, Ms Saga Rodiek becomes Mrs Alexander Johansson, and the crowd cheers!


7929 Wellwishes

Well-wishes from all!


7930 Ball

A nerve-wrecking game of kicky ball


7931 Reception

And a buffet reception


7932 Great

It’s a smashing roof lifter, and Alexander the Pleasure sim is very happy!


7933 Helena

After the wedding ride around the block, the past is back to haunt Alexander.
Helena Markövertag and him had something going in Uni probably, but it was never serious. He never came over her, though, and it caused a scene at another house earlier this round.
Helena: “You know, Alex, you and I had a good time and all, but I’m expecting another man’s child now and you are married to another woman. You need to let go!”


7934 Sorry

Alexander: ”I know, I know! I love Saga, but you know, we really had something special. I’m sorry, I will really, really try to let you go!”


7935 Relax

Helena: ”That’s ok, I understand. We’re cool, just relax and enjoy your wife, right?”


7936 No job

The encounter with his past love makes Alexander pull together, and he focuses to get into his dream career of Culinary, but the market is slow.


7937 Garden

And he puts in some respectable hours in the greenhouse that came with the house.


7938 Deepsea

Helena stalks the lot, and Saga greets her gladly, as a friend to her husband, when she comes home promoted to Deepsea Fisherman. Saga has no idea about the history Alexander and Helena share


7939 Fish

Luckily Alexander is inside practicing for his future dream job by cooking a trout that he caught in the pond on the lot.


7940 Sous chef

And that night, Alexander finds an opening in the Culinary Career as a Sous Chef. Good start!


7941 Pop

Saga: ”Pop”
J68: ”Hey! Didn’t you guys read the memo about a ban on breeding brown-haired blue-eyed sims?!”
Saga: “Shut up, we’re producing generation 5 here!”
J68: ….”Well, ok, carry on…”


Storfallet after round 26:
Saga (Rodiek) Johansson
Alexander Johansson

CLIFFHANGER!
Well, not really, but ... will this be the first Generation 5, or will someone sneak in the line? Will it be a live birth? SUSPENSE!

Ooh, how exciting! Though barring unfortunate accidents, it will still be a very long time before this baby grows up, lives its life, and eventually dies, so the challenge is still far from over. Assuming of course it makes it to being born at all. It must be nice to have the end potentially in sight at least though.

I'm not sure on the cousin question. I think they'd be considered first cousins once removed though, but I get all confused about the "removed" stuff and never remember how it works exactly.

Nobody has ever succeeded in explaining that stuff to me. Probably it's something you say to mark that you are related in some way :)

This was a very entertaining update - and generation 5 on the way! Congratulations!! The sheer persistence with the hoards of sims you have to mangage. Exactly how many playables do you have right now?

Checking extensive spreadsheet... ... ... The Mattsmyra total amount of playable sims is 178, whereof 130 living. Phew! No wonder I get confused myself!

I think they would be second cousins. First cousins share grandparents, second cousins share great-grandparents, third cousins share great-great-grandparents, and so on. Once removed means that they are not of the same generation--for example, my first cousins once removed have my grandmother as their great-grandmother. (In other words, they are my first cousins' children.)

Congrats on almost having Generation 5! I am about 2 rounds away from Generation 4 in my Prosperity 'hood, and it has been much neglected of late. Perhaps I will get caught up a bit while I am sitting around feeding my baby and can't do much but mess around on the computer. :)

Congratulations on your baby!
And thank you for explaining the "first removed" part. I think you are right that they are actually second cousins - I confused myself with the fact that Saga's grandfather was a CAS teen and Alexander's grandmother born in game, but they were both children to CAS Lena Myhr, and she is the great-grandmother of both Saga and Alexander.

So, just out of curiousity, since I notice really weird things like this....what happened to Friday-Sunday? Your days go Wed-Thur and then Mon-Tue. NVM!!! They move, I got it!

Ah yes, the two turns of phrase "under your belt" and "notch in your belt (or bedpost)" can be very easy to mix together or mix up if you aren't used to hearing them all the time. :)

OH boy, Gen 5 is on it's way, either with her or whoever else is gen 4 with a baby on the way.

Yeah, we got cheated out of family Sunday this time, but the move was really necessary :)
