I sincerely apologise for the absence. NaNo was hell.
Back off, paparazzi lady. Ramona needs those genetics.
Ramona: ‘Oh Jack, I dream of us…in a house with clean dishes and no dirty laundry…’
Well, you have a date soon. That’ll get you out of the house, at least.
Jack: ‘So, uh, is this some kind of new grunge fashion trend?’
Says the one in the ugly tracksuit,
Jack: ‘Well, it can slide this time. I’m not looking for perfection.’
Yeah, you have that with your creepy girlfriend, the one who looks like a doll. The best you’ll get here is the ‘half asleep uni student,’ look.
Yeah, there’s definitely no subtlety here.
Jack: ‘I guess perfection isn’t everything.’
You guys are so classy. They’re in the middle of the library,
Unfortunately, he ran off right before they could get down to business, so Ramona tried tracking him down the next day. It was not to be.
Jack: ‘I can’t be seen with her here- I have a reputation to keep up. Perfectly creepy looking girlfriend, a pure white blanket of snow…’
Yeah, Midnight Hollow’s a little weird.
Ghost Girl: ‘Oh hey, Ramona. Looking for the next victim?’
Ramona: ‘Yes, actually. Jack ran out on me. But then again…can I come over? I’ve just remembered an old friend…’
Bonding over cleaning. Trust you.
Ramona: ‘But we both love modern art! It’s meant to be!’
Oh for God’s sake, what did I say about ‘How did you die?’ not being an appropriate conversation starter?!
Not that he seems to mind…Maybe we’re in luck.
Gail…how does that even work?
Gail: ‘They could be hiding IN the wood. Or the carpet, you can never tell with monsters!’
I suppose this IS the equivalent of Strangetown…
Ramona: ‘So, can you guys drown? Or do you just get electrocuted again?’
Human: ‘Freaks. The lot of you.’
These are supposed to be futuristic foods, but all they look like is bread rolls to me.
Time for date #2!
Guy: ‘I don’t remember you, but I’m sure you’re cheating on me now!’
Ramona: ‘But that was YEARS ago, we’re not together any more!’
Guy: ‘The relationship panel never forgets!’
Policeman; ‘Sorry about that. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure he won’t harass you any longer. Did he break your umbrella?’
Ramona: ‘And my heart.’
I’m not sure what happened to Jack. He probably ran off again.
Ramona: ‘YEAH! SCIENCE! THAT’LL SHOW JACK! I DON’T NEED THAT GUY, I HAVE PH LEVELS!’
Harper: ‘Where’s Mummy?’
Florence: ‘Off meeting strange men.’
It’s sad, but true.
In the meantime, she’s back to try and woo Jack. Don’t get any ideas, we can’t afford to get you a dragon.
Trenchcoat: ‘He’s cheating with her? Well, at least she doesn’t look as terrifying as his usual girlfriend…’
She seriously does look scary. Go look her up.
I feel bad for the twins. They do little but babysit.
Ramona: ‘What do you think this represents? Love? Beauty? Me?’
This should be the title picture for the whole challenge, if you think about it.
Bonehilda: ‘Before you say anything, I’m a maid, not a nanny. Where’s her mother?’
You’re only asking this now? These kids practically raise themselves.
Florence: ‘Yes, Ilse, scream! If you scream loud enough, maybe Mother will come back and fire that thing we call a maid!’
Good luck. She and Cory are the only ones who do any sort of work around here.
Ellery: ‘Hey, look! I’m doing things this chapter!’
Why do they age up in the most boring colours they can find? Sigh…
Much better! Ellery’s final trait is Dramatic, so she managed to escape most of the mental scarring.
Ellery: ‘I’ll miss you, Mikey, but I can’t stay. I’m finally free of being a wage slave.’
Just wait. You have to get a job now.
Oh yeah, Cody got a girlfriend at prom…but I can’t remember what her name is, plus I’m pretty sure she’s a Face One…I can’t seem to find the MasterController option to fix that?
Ramona: ‘Oh God, here we go again.’
LIGHTING MOD! 😀
Florence: ‘She’d better not emotionally scar my twin. Only I’m allowed to do that.’
You’re a good sister, Florence. I think.
Pregnancy, birthdays and rotting laundry. Should be the challenge tagline.
And now for Harper!
They both have the ghostly white skin tone, but look how adorable Ilse is!
Harper’s third trait is Diva, and Ilse has Lucky.
Next up is Gail, who is also adorable.
At least the nameless girlfriend cares.
And after the makeover…
I tried to keep the outfit sweet and simple, and I think it worked. Her fourth trait is Bot Fan, hence the goggles.
I really wonder if my game is broken, hence the lack of triplets.
See? Even Gail’s mad.
Gail: ‘Yeah! I broke my wrists, too! Give me triplet siblings, or my feet are next!’
That’s…sweet, but more than a little bit morbid.
NG: ‘Yeah, I’ve leaving before I can get snared into a legacy house.’
Snow paw prints! ❤
Gnome #1: ‘Can you believe it? I thought this show was gone for good!’
Gnome #2: ‘I know! The poor garden…so lonely and neglected.’
Gnome #7: ‘WE LOVE YOU, RAMONA!’
Gail: ‘Okay, just stand nice and still and don’t get all that horrible dirt all over me…’
Mikey: ‘Let’s be realistic, the only reason you’re doing this is so someone actually uses the bath for once.’
Florence: ‘Good boy. Fight authority.’
…That’s not how you cook, Ramona.
Ramona: ‘It is in the Sims 4!’
Yeah, well I’ll have to wait until Christmas to find that one out.
Ramona: ‘You still look so creepy and beautiful!’
Guy: ‘I’m too tired for this.’
Ramona: ‘I can’t remember why I’m yelling at you, but it raises my Charisma skill so I’m doing it anyway!’
Cody: ‘I just turned the radio on!’
Ramona: ‘WELL, I DON’T LIKE IT!’
Ramona: ‘And stop standing there! Go do something useful!’
Florence: ‘Me, not doing anything? I’ve practically raised the girls myself- where were you when I didn’t have a childhood? And now you’re having more?! I have half a mind to take Gail and the twins with me when I move out!’
Ilse: ‘Hi, Mum. Why is everyone screaming at each other?’
It’s a normal day in this house, what do you expect?
Gail: ‘Why are you acting so surprised? This is the 13th time you’ve done this.’
Ramona: ‘Yeah, and just 87 more to go…’
You signed up for this yourself.
For some reason, this is the next picture I have, so I guess we’ll do the introductions in a minute.
Ramona: ‘Hey, Jack! I’m covered in blood and sweat and I can have your kid now! Come on over!’
Gail: ‘Yeah, we’ll just…go out for a few hours.’
Look at that gorgeous reflection. 😀
Yeah, kids, you just keep playing with the water balloons. It’s for the best. You don’t want to see this.
But at least I’m playing the challenge correctly for once.
But this is January Mallon. who has Loves the Outdoors and Athletic for her first two traits, and Pup music, chilli con carne and the colour black for her favourites. She’s a pretty decent mix!
Florence’s hair magically disappears when she’s asleep. It’s hilarious.
But she does have a boyfriend, Darron! Also known as the guy who lives with all the ghosts.
Florence: ‘I don’t care.’
Florence: ‘Want to be my boyfriend and run far, far away from crazy town?’
Darron: ‘You read my mind.’
I’m going to leave it there- please leave a comment if you have the time!
