Part 1 Part 2
(Very) short summary: Aeon Adams and Eldred Rice fell in love with each other while being in Uni. Eldred graduated and moved in with his BFF Luna Hatter.
The relationship between Eldred and Aeon had cooled down a bit. They say, absence makes the heart grow fonder, but in this case, it was more like "Out of sight, out of mind". Aeon started flirting with Basic (sheesh, Basic, you are part of the Gustavsson Legacy now, stop that fooling around!), and both Aeon and Eldred lacked a bit of enthusiasm for each other whenever they met.
They were thinking of splitting up for good when Luna decided to invite Aeon over for dinner. One thing led to another, Eldred led Aeon to bed, and I could not believe what I heard: the post-coital jingle aka lullaby. Eldred got pregnant, with twins!!! This is the third unplanned pregnancy in the neighborhood, and the second time it hits a gay couple which is ready to break up (first was Lewis and Dorian who are glad they stayed together).
Here you see a happy Aeon leaving his knocked up boyfriend who is blissfully unaware of things to come.
My Knowledge sims have commitment issues, but always a great sense of responsibility. Aeon is no different, he races through the last semesters of Uni, graduates summa cum laude, and he and Eldred buy a house with a lake. He has no intention on marrying, though. It is fine for Eldred, who is relieved he does not have to raise the twins on his own.
It sounded like a great idea at the time I picked my neighborhood - mountains. A look at the image reveals the reality. This is not a skyscraper, but the road up the hill. In a 90 degree angle. Amazing.
The attempt to flatten the terrain made things even worse. Never, ever will I create a new neighborhood in the mountains. Promised. It is not only the visual insult that is bad. I hate the camera suddenly going up and down again when zooming in and out. I really, really hate it, but there is nothing I can do. Exept maybe move every single house in the neighborhood into the bin and into a new hood, but I am not sure if I want to do it, and if it is safe. I have 38 families in this hood and a bunch more houses, so this would take forever.
Their first breakfast in the new house. Eldred is not shy and brings up the issue with Basic.
"Was that really necessary? An affair with Basic??"
"Awww, come on! It was not an "affair"! I kissed Basic, and I already apologized. I am sorry. Ok?"
It obviously is.
Aeon is desperately searching for a job. They are really low on money, the house wasn´t cheap, and I forget about the money for the maternity leave. Aeon wants to be a Mad Scientist, but the job doesn´t show up for, I don´t know, five days? It drives Aeon nuts and makes him grouchy.
Out of desperation, he picks the job in the Showbiz career, because it brings in the most money, and quickly makes it to Broadway star. Who would have guessed? :-)
The pregnancy goes smoothly. No throwing up, no question marks over Eldred´s head. As a doctor, he should know what is going on.
When he pops, he is aware it was not the pancakes he just ate.
He pops a little more. And looks like, hmm, too much beer?
And then the great moment arrives.
Yes, Mr. Wannabe Mad Scientist, Woohoo is exactly what created the situation you find yourself in now!
The first baby is a girl, and awwww ... totally inherited Aeon´s genes. She looks like a copy of his sister Elaine as a baby and gets named Undine.
The second baby is a girl, too. And for some reason, I did not take a screenshot. Don´t ask me why. Her name is Violet.
And then fate knocks on the door. Harold Lloyd makes an appearance. He is a sim I made and townified, being curious how long it would take until somebody falls in love with him. He often calls my sims, but mostly married women, Faust Stockhausen hung out in the tub with him, but only has one bolt, he landed in another tub of the infamous Romance sim Roxanne, and I feared for his virginity, but he came out of it immaculate. Sadly, Eldred does not have a tub, but three bolts for the cute guy who is as shy as he is.
They make friends quickly, and my imagination goes rampant. How about letting Harold move in with them? But for the moment I drop the idea, and Harold trots away.
Having newborns is rather easy at first. They mostly lie in the crib.
The guys even have time to study.
I am so unsure what to do with them, so I stop my micromanaging and just let them do what they want.
Aww, I kind of missed that. Raising twins is not an easy task after a while. They have no help except from the creepy male maid Maximilian with the purple gloves who never cleans the shower nor toilet. I am glad Eldred loves to clean, it is a source of pleasure for him to scrub, so his mood is mostly great.
And then the girls grow up. Urgh. Undine just needs a new hairdo and is basically cute, but Violet??
This looks more like a mix of dog and baby. Only the eyes and brows look familiar. I am glad there is something like plastic surgery.
Undine is really cute.
She quickly wins over her aunt Elaine´s heart with being a spitting image of her.
After some cautious surgery, even Violet looks cute and a bit like Aeon without all the body hair.
I have no idea where Eldred put his genes. Maybe he misplaced them.
I did not take many pictures when they were toddlers. It was a mess. Eldred was lucky when he got two hours of sleep in a row. One toddler woke up the other who had just been put in bed. Empty, stinky bottles everywhere. Constant running to clean the potties. A bug which dropped the environmental score really low. I have not been able to find out what is causing it. But the kids grew up well and Aeon finally found his mad scientist job.
The impression I have a preference for Undine might not be entirely false. I just have a weak spot for the Shadowbane werewolf gene. So, again, no picture of Violet, who was in bed already. Thanks heavens!
After the birthday celebration, Aeon and Eldred just fell into bed, totally exhausted. They are still there, recovering from raising the twins. Stay tuned, there might be an update sooner or later! I always want to have a family vacation, maybe this family might be the lucky one.
