Gondolkanalen 74 year 80-84, Ugly Duckling

« previous entry | next entry »
Apr. 17th, 2011 | 11:22 am

 Previously at Gondolkanalen, Siv nearly died from fire, but got away. Helena grew up to toddler and then child. Malcolm was unfaithful and Malva worked.



The update for Gondolkanalen starts with Malcolm’s electronics store reaching level 4.

He's rarely there, so it's no wonder it takes time.



While Malcolm is working in his store, Malva’s twin brother Sebastian is visiting. He autonomously walked into the house. Malva is happy to see him.



Outside, the girls entertain themselves with a pillow fight, and realize that their preferred hobby is Sports. I had no idea that pillow fighting was a sport!



In the evening it’s time for a home date for Malva and Malcolm. They’re pretty sweet together, but they are not each other’s highest match.




Malcolm has already been straying. As we might remember, he had a rendez-vous in the hottub with his work mate Eva while his daughter Siv was nearly burnt to death.
Malva has been true so far, but she seems to have the hots for Cormier men.



One of the upsides with having rich parents is that you can have an indoor pool. Helena invites Jesper Burlin to a game of Marco Polo, and they won’t freeze even though it’s soon winter, since they’re indoors.



Malcolm and Malva both got promoted to Con Artists, and Malva brought home her second highest match Max Benett from work. I’m not sure what he did at their office, he works in the athletics career. Maybe he was there to bet on himself in the next game.



Or he’s here to celebrate Siv’s birthday. We’re all excited to see if Siv has been an ugly duckling who evolves to a beautiful swan



Well, not really, but it could have been a lot worse. Her beautiful eyes really helps.




Siv rolls family, which feels fresh and new in this hood. She turns on from underwear and unemployment, but turns off from perfume. She should marry a sloppy pleasure sim.



She instantly finds a guy to have the hots for – Lars-Erik Knutsson, dormie. Maybe we’ll see our first teen pregnancy in this hood when she starts booty calling him!



Friday, the winter arrives, and Malva gets promoted to getaway driver. Malcolm is left behind again. And Max has been betting on himself again and comes home with Malva



Siv has to buy herself a mobile phone, and goes shopping with her friend Jenny Mattsson.
They have been playing together since they were little girls.



Saturday is dedicated for workout and homework. Helena learns how to study with the help of her father Malcolm.



There is a really strong attraction between Siv and Lars-Erik. She wished to become friends with him and invited him over. They had a daily relation of 13, but he said yes, and the moment he sat foot on the lot they headed straight for the hottub!



And our 14-year-old family girl might fulfill her LTW of graduating 3 children from college earlier than anyone before her…



The 14 Montell cousins are really growing up. Probably there won’t be any more kids, but you never know, maybe Sebastian will have a baby with Rut somewhere along he line, she’s still young. And an accident can always happen here in the Markövertag house, too.



Luckily, the front porch of the Markövertag mansion is big enough to fit all the Montell siblings with families. Let the chaos begin!



The biggest traffic jam is on the ledge above the pool area. There the sims get stuck for hours on end.



Firends are made and games are watched. An ordinary family Sunday, indeed.



Helena is getting good at the piano, and entertains her older cousins. They’re all older than her, Helena is the youngest daughter of the youngest daughter of the Monell family, so it makes sense.



The last one to leave that night is Oscar, Malva’s nephew. He spent all afternoong trimming hedges and has frozen himself blue. Anyway, thanks for your effort!



Gondolkanalen 74 after round 22:
Malcolm Markövertag
Malva Markövertag
Siv Markövertag
Helena Markövertag

Well done! I thought you had given up on inviting dozens of guests, but luckily no one set anything on fire!

Wow, what a big family!!! I am always in awe of your ability to keep track of so many sims at one time. Those family events are never boring! Malcolm's kids are always, um, unique looking. But I think Siv actually turned out really pretty.

Luckily the game helps to keep track of the families. It has been known to happen that I think of pairing up sims that are actually cousins when I think more closely about it. :)

So how did Siv meet Lars-Eric anyway? And get to know him well enough to have the hots for him immediately upon growing up to teen? Wouldn't have thought she'd have been around any college age guys at her young age with no siblings in college.

Las-Erik is a dormie, and a GH member. He was friends with Siv's mother Malva first, so he walked in and out of the house on occasion. So Siv knew him, though not closely, since she was born

I love it when sims come to a house and do the chores. =P
A family girl?! Your die must be on vacation or something haha.

True that my die made an out-of-character roll this time :)
And I love it too when guests trim the hedges - especially in this house that has miles of hedges around the estate!

Siv is really quite pretty and unique with Malcolm's stern brow, and it looks like your family sims may be even more "active" than your romance girls! Good to see everyone having fun on Family Sunday... I don't know how you get that many sims in the house without the game crashing!

Siv is not exactly a beauty queen, but it's better than when she was smaller!
Regarding many sims on the lot - I've got a pretty strong processor, but I had it crash once with a Montell wedding - it had to be narrowed down :)

Another very fun update! Siv grew up into her looks a lot! She may not be a beauty queen, but she's a very pretty Markovertag. The family Sunday was fun this time...glad there were no fires. :) Siv sure is moving quick with Lars-Erik. That family tree is simply INSANE! So many cousins and kids. Great job.

Thanks :) I really need the family trees to keep my own sanity, and I love to see them grow.
It seems really that Siv will end up with Lars-Erik, but we'll see - her cousin Märta is involved with him, too. I bet he doesn't know they are related :)

It's always SO nice when guests start trimming hedges and picking the weeds. :D Interesting with the pillow fights. It's also to find other ways to work on their hobby interest.

Some hobbies have so many different activities, and so have nearly none, or I didn't find them...

Like science. Stargazing, weather channel and ants - that's about it. :(
