Devivio 2 (R8)

When last we visited Pamela, Jack and Flora, Jack had opened up a toy shoppe in Bluewater Village as a birthday gift for Flora. Flora aged into a teen declaring a Fortune aspiration with a desire to one day reach the top of the Athletic Career like her dad. Jack and Flora worked the business up to Rank 5 and earned many badges in the process. How will Flora prepare for her college years in her last round at home? Lets find out

Devivio 2 (Lot 6) Monday-Saturday
Jar Card #204: Create one of each item from the Robot Workbench, then use them on your lot

Like any good fortune sim, Flora had the bright idea that being accepted in the prestigious Silvervale Private School would help her attain great success in her future. She begged Jack and Pamela to allow her to invite the headmaster over for dinner. Proud of Flora's initiative, they happily obliged her request

When the headmaster showed up, Jack greeted him at the door and gave him a quick tour of the house while Pamela prepared dinner

A scrumptious dinner of blackened catfish was on the menu and enjoyed by all

With the delicious food and a house full of charismatic individuals, there was no question that Flora would be accepted into private school

Pamela noticed she was beginning to put on weight from her recently discovered talent for cooking. She took to the punching bag to work off those extra pounds and even managed to earn a Fitness Hobby Plaque in the process

The luck continued to stream into the household. First Jack received a huge bonus by promoting a new sports complex despite his personal feelings on the matter

That evening, Pamela also received a bonus for a successful experiment

With the sudden influx of money, Pamela and Jack could indulge Flora in another present, a robot bench, that she had been hoping to get. She felt robots would make a welcome addition to the toy store she and her father shared... "grown-up toys..." she remarked

Before the weekend, Flora managed to attain her silver Robotics Badge.

The week continued to go well for Flora. She discovered that one of her good friend, Annatto Eich, had a small crush on her, a crush that she reciprocated. One afternoon she worked up the courage to invite him over.

They had a wonderful time together hanging out and singing karaoke in the back yard

Later in the afternoon, Annatto surprised Flora by giving her her first kiss

Flora was on cloud nine after their afternoon together. She knew she had found someone that she could potentially spend the rest of her life with.

Despite private school, robots and her new boyfriend, Flora didn't feel that she was busy enough and begged Jack to get her a job on his team. He was able to find her a position in the locker-rooms, nothing glamourous but it kept Flora even more busy than she already was.

With Flora's wit and charm, it didn't take long for her to be promoted up to team mascot, the highest level she could attain in the field until she had a university degree in her hand

To celebrate her promotion, Flora invited Annatto downtown to Sims Gone Wired.

When they arrived at SGW the couple enjoyed a few games and some PDA

Then they headed upstairs to the dining room for a quick dessert before heading home for the evening

When their date had ended, Flora said goodbye to Annatto and promised to visit often. She was moving to Sim State the next day but he would not be starting until she was halfway through. They were both sad about being separated but Flora had plans to share a rental with Annatto's sister, Angelica, so he was sure he would be able to see her often.

That evening, when Flora got home, she applied for her scholarships

Early the next morning, Flora left for Sim State

Scoring: 1 point for Pamela's Fitness Plaque

Household Net-Worth: 294,581

((Well there are going to be a lot of "bloopers" for this round so here goes. Pamela and Jack, being the two romance sims that they are, date a lot. Pamela spun up a silly want during one of their dates this week:

Annatto and Flora could potentially be a 3-bold couple if he puts on a little weight and doesn't shave for a while -- for a fortune sim, Flora doesn't really have high standards:

And here are the results of the robot Jar Card, Flora only got to a silver badge, so I will keep the Card open for next round as well. The hydrobot malfunctioned

Luckily the cleanbot was there to clean up the mess

Does the cleanbot remind anyone else of the broom-dog in the animated version of Alice in Wonderland? Well that's it for this house for the round. Join us for the 3rd Devivio house on the playlist next...))

I don't know why, but for some reason, I adore Flora. She's one of my favorite of your sims. She's just so cute and sweet! And yay for a potential love match with Annatto. :) They shared their first kiss almost in the exact spot Diego and Amber had theirs. :') Awww....

I really like Flora too. Her personality to me is that she's cute and sweet combined with a lot of drive a focus.

I'm annoyed at her and Annatto though because they are both the heirs for their households! Although the cottage that Pamela owns isn't one of the original households so I guess it's not a big deal to carry the bonus points on it.

I love sims rolling random wants during dates. I had one want to influence someone to garden...and he wasn't even at home.

Liz said...

yeah, sims are so weird sometimes. Admittedly Cookie's hygiene was completely empty, so she did need a bath, bigtime.

Yous sims are leaving for Uni in their PJ's too, I see :)
Flora is really pretty, I like both her hair and her outfit.

I am getting to like teenagers these days. I used to send them to college the minute they turned teen. Now I play them for awhile. They are fun
