Runemo year 80-84, Fraternal Twins

« previous entry | next entry »
Mar. 3rd, 2011 | 06:44 pm


Previously at Runemo, Annika got her first kiss before the very eyes of her father. Pontus and Oliver grew up to children. Barbro got a membership in the Garden Club. David died (!) from fever, but Barbro saved his life. The boys played with girls their own age. Barbro and David grew up well to elders and celebrated their golden anniversary. David became a Mad Scientist and Annika became a Guard.



On her last day home before leaving for Uni, Annika Sandvall harvests her sister’s oranges.
 

Her sister Märta doesn’t live here anymore, but has a house of her own since she graduated from college.



Barbro has taken over the responsibility for the greenhouse. She’s not very good yet, but she’s learning.



Annika comes home from her job as a Guard and applies for her scolarships. She’s qualified for the Young Entrepreneur’s grant, which is very uncommon in Mattsmyra. Most teens don’t have after school jobs. Then Annika takes her stuff and moves out to start her education!



Barbro is a good mother, doting on her family. She serves nutritious meals every time, but sometimes doesn’t bother to get dressed. Maybe she should get a robe with winter coming.



The boys have their robes on at least.

Oliver: “Some people don’t believe that Ponus and I are twins, just because we don’t look alike. Why don’t we look alike, Mamma?”
Barbro: “Well, that’s because you are fraternal twins and not identical twins. Fraternal twins are not more alike than other siblings”



Then they all go to work and to school, and when Barbro comes home she’s promoted to Animal Linguist.



Oliver: ”Did you know there are aliens living among us here in Mattsmyra?”



Pontus: ”I don’t believe they’re aliens, I think they’re robots!”



Oliver:”Maybe they’re astronaut robots!”



Pontus: ”Maybe there IS life on other planets after all!”



Oliver: ”I don’t know, but now I take your horse!”



Pontus: ”Oh, yeah?! Then watch me when I take your queen!”
Oliver:*gasp!*



Oliver:”Well, take this! CHECK!”

Pontus:*gasp!*



Meanwhile in the parents’ bedroom:
“WOOHOO!”



Then, birthday! Oliver and Pontus’ grown-up sisters are joining the party. The rain is pouring down outside.



The fraternal twins grow up to teenagers. Oliver grows up into the exact same shirt as he wore as a child, what are the odds for that? Oliver chooses the Knowledge aspiration and turns on from formal wear and jewellery, but turns off from blonds.

Pontus, too, chooses the Knowledge aspiration, even though he changes his shirt. He turns on from glasses and black hair, but turns off from underwear.



Both boys turn out to be straight, which probably means the Montell clan will continue to dominate the hood.



Montell Sunday…



And disaster stikes immediately – Marcus cannot keep his hands off of Rut Mattsson. Is this a college update or what?! Marcus, I thought you grew up when you got married to Elisabet!



Marcus’s action makes a lot of people very upset. Just look at their frowning faces!



Inside, Barbro is upset, too. Her older brother Simon broke the computer, so she lectures him. Her younger brother Martin can hardly believe his eyes.



Then, a ladies’ lunch is served. Barbro’s daughter Annika, her sister Anna, and her sisters-in-law Sofie, married to Martin, and Carita, married to Simon, enjoy their comfort soup in the cool garden.



The Montell cousins are growing up one at a time. Soon there will be no children left, only teens and above. Only Helena will still be a child when this round is over.



David has more fun with his boys now, since they grew up. Probably he doesn’t know how to handle children, but Knowledge teens are fine.
 
They are more like himself. Runemo has also gotten some decorations lately. It has been a pretty scarecly decorated house, bt it’s getting better, with better financials and a sim godess who finally sees that some decorations could look good in the pictures.


Barbro still works in the Natural Science career and gets promoted to Unnatural Cross-breeder, and that’s the last event of interest that happens at Runemo this time.


 


Runemo after round 22:
Barbro Sandvall
David Sandvall
Oliver Sandvall
Pontus Sandvall
Cosmos, the cat

Whoa, straight boys! They certainly will have their day.
Hopefully they don't end up like Marcus though. Does he need to be neutered to start thinking of anything else?

Marcus is the most misbehaved Knowledge sim I've ever had. Probably he's a Romancer at heart

Thanks! This family is fun to play even though not much is happening. I was fascinated by the boys' chess game, they did legal moves and played pretty well. The programmers at EA have put some effort into that! :)

Hmm, I've never actually paid attention to the chess games...other than to get some of the cute faces the sims make while playing it. That's really neat that they make actual moves. I'll have to really watch them play the next time!

LOL.....I loved the chess match, that was cute. The twins are super cute, and I love it when twins match aspirations and stuff too. They may be fraternal in looks, but identical in a lot of other ways. :) Family Sunday here was CRAZY. BAD Marcus! Rut is a super popular girl....which I guess may come from the fact she was held back for so long. :D Great update as always.

Thanks! Well, Marcus sure adds some spice - I just feel bad for his poor Family wife Elisabet :/

The chess board banter was very fun... I can never capture what my sims are talking about quickly enough to put together a coherent scene like that. The twins turned out to be very good looking boys and I'm sure they will make some of your many ladies very happy. Also, Whoa family Sunday, everyone loves Rut but everyone seems to be swooning over My and Simon in the first picture.

My and Sebastian (simon is his older brother :)) are the sexiest sims alive at the moment. It seems the sims society chooses one Don juan/juanita at a time :)

That notorious Marcus ... :D And his poor wife :(
It's amazing how you manage to monitor your sims during these crowded family Sundays and capture those pictures. I can't see why the Garden Club doesn't like their garden - I think it is lovely. I would gladly have joined the lunchparty.

There must be one thing or another that is missing when the garden club inspects, but I haven't found what, yet. When I do, we'll see the wells coming! :)
