Carey has a wish to visit China, and an opportunity to collect some common relics for the office to get a raise. So, he and Cara rush off to Shang Simla.
"Can we go home now?"
You just got here. And you're not leaving until you collect some relics for work.
"This website ays Shang Simla is plagued by serious routing issues. I wonder if our Watcher downloaded the fix for that?"
Your Watcher did, but forgot to reinstall it after the last ep/patch. But at least the dig site fixer mod is in place.
After fulfilling Carey's wish to visit the academy and letting him earn a belt in Sim Fu, I sent them off to find the relics for his opportunity. Done and done.
"Ooh, the baby sitter sent us a video of Fuff and Desmond! So cute! Maybe we should have waited for him to age up before he left."
"Time freezes at home while we're traveling, Cara. It will still be Desmond's birthday when we get home."
Yes, I sent them traveling on Desmond's birthday. I just wanted to get the trip out of the way and not have it interfere with any wishes to do the toddler training.
After seeing a few more sights and buying incense, they run out of wishes I can fulfill here, so it's back to base camp to run on autonomy.
Cara has a new smartphone obsession. Carey works on his wish to be best friends with Dillon Lawless by calling and texting him relentlessly.
The real reason Carey wished to visit the Academy again, flirting with the locals. As usual, it comes to nothing.
But he managed to earn a few more belts, too.
When they start breaking the plumbing in the base camp, that's pretty much my signal to leave.
I'll let them get their woohoo on first.
So, I didn't document much of their trip. Travel in wishacies is a little spotty depending on what they wish to do while they're there. Carey did get the call to do the first tomb, which he took. But I didn't bother with pictures, since I've been there and done that all too often, and I assume everyone else has as well, or at least seen in countless legacies. He and Cara also got a bunch of Fed Ex quest calls, to find gems and metals to deliver to locals. Doing all that netted them around 3k above the cost of their trrip.
Desmond will never forgive his crapsack parents for taking off on his birthday. Never!
"And your mother walked in on me while I was in bed with Maggie. She was furious! But, I thought we were broken up on account of her getting back together with Frederick Eames the night before. I mean, we weren't even romantic interests at that point. But I guess she was also kind of mad at Maggie for cheating on Dillon with me. Because your Mom and Dillon grew up in the orphanage together. So, anyway, after I took your mom to prom, I thought everything was cool; I was going steady with Cara and Maggie and Dillon were still an item. No more cheating for anyone. But Maggie never got over it, she totally flipped on me at our graduation party. Accused me of cheating on her, even though she was actually married to Dillon by then..."
Desmond does eventually learn to talk, when his dad lets him get a word in. Carey also roll a wish to potty train him, and he and Cara both want to see him age up well, s she gets to teach him to walk.
Fuff also ages up.
"The toilet seat is cold!"
You can feel that through your jeans?
Carey has been diligently working on a wish to upgrade 5 things. As soon as he finishes that sink, he and Cara work on her wish for another baby.
Like she's actually aware of what happened, Cara rolls a wish to quit her job right after the chimes. I let her fulfill that, since I was planning on changing her LTW from the CEO one and hoping she'd wish for a more interesting career.
And Cara complies by wishing for three careers after she quits; to go back into busness (No), become a criminal, or become a gardener. We opt for the gardening career because it will be my first shot at self-employment in a wishacy. So, she heads of to City Hall the next morning to register in her dream job. (She also has a locked in wish to grow a Great tomato plant, currently in progress)
When she comes home, she uses the babysitter to fulfill her wish for 18 friends. I get a good look at him; he's an exact clone of Farrell Brannon (from my Brannon legacy). Except for the big pointy ears. After he's done here, I move him into the orphanage, hoping to see his genes pass on into DV. =)
Morvyn the dragon gets more attention in this house than he did in the previous one. Still, a rather disappointing bit of premium content he is. They didn't even give them a bed or perch, so Sims just drop him on the floor wherever and I have to move him out of the way in buy mode.
Oh, and there's Cara's maternity outfit for pregnancy 2.
At some point in there, Cara does get to change her LTW. It's now the blogger one, to max social networking and have a 5 star blog. I wasn't sure she'd be able to do it, but thought it would be fun to see if she rolls the wishes to make it happen. So far, so good, she's got a locked in wish to improve the skill and to have 300 followers, so she gets to blog every time something blog-worthy happens to her. Mostly woohoo, as it turns out.
Carey is super-husband, constantly autonomously giving Cara amazing massages.
Carey is hoping for a girl, that wish is locked in. Car wanted a boy, but there wasn't the space to lock in the wish. And *I* want a girl, too, so...yeah, not jinxing myself. Though, maybe by locking Carey's girl-wish, I *am* jinxing myself?
Fuckin' jinxes, how do they work?
Since aging up, Fuff has only rolled one wish, to be BFFs with Cara, which he achieves through non-stop pestering for attention.
"You got your girl. I hope you're happy."
I will be if she has your hair and freckles, Cara.
The newest Lancaster is named Paisley. She's Clumsy and a Natural Cook. And she's already the frontrunner for heir.
In neighborhood news: Drustan aged up and married his girlfriend Krystal. Since she was a babysitter, I had to move her into the orphanage so she'd age up properly and all that.
Faelan and Yasmin had a baby, a boy I think.
Tamsyn is dating a pink-haired Herbert Kelly.
Van and Camille Pleasant-McCarthy had a baby as well. Hopefully with purple hair.
