Hmm, my last entry said I’d update again “soon”, didn’t it? Well, I’m going to say if less than a month has passed, that counts as soon. *cough*
When we last left Melody, she had just become pregnant with Don Lothario’s child, and then thoroughly dumped D-Lo like the trash that he is.
I’ll be honest. After chapter 1, I actually played chapter 2 the next day, but I was called away into the real world, so I didn’t get a chance to blog it. And now, I don’t rightly remember what happened, so you’ll have to bear with me while I make some shit up based on the pictures I took. 😀
Melody’s pregnancy was largely uneventful, consisting mostly of waddling around in her underwear and eating grilled cheese.
So let’s skip through all that, since it’s not very interesting, and also because I forgot to take any pictures of it, excluding the grilled cheese pic above. On to the birth!
She yawns as she heads to the front desk to check in. Miraculously, there’s actually someone sitting there.
Suddenly, Melody’s not looking so good…
With little warning, she drops to the floor and passes out from exhaustion. The hospital staff seems unfazed.
When she comes to, she finds that she’s been strapped into some kind of terrifying cross between an iron lung and an MRI machine, with a young doctor gleefully manning the controls. She looks more like she’s playing an arcade game than delivering a baby.
After being pinched and prodded through the holes on the side of this contraption, Melody’s new, blue little bundle of joy is placed at her side.
Melody instantly loses most of her baby bump, via, ummmm, magic or something, and takes this opportunity to strike a seductive pose for the orderly.
Now that she’s no longer pregnant, it’s time to… get pregnant again, obviously. Melody hopes to have at least three children, the least hideous of which will become heir to the throne of this bizarre challenge. So she takes to the streets while Iris sleeps, searching for beautiful men to father her next child. She meets a man named Micah. They hit it off pretty quickly, but he’s not exactly Brad Pitt…
Unable to find a man up to her high standards, Melody heads home. But soon after she arrives at home, who should come to the door but Eric Lewis?
He seems to have changed his tune, today, though. In a big way.
Things quickly heat up, and one way or another, the two young lovebirds find themselves sitting awfully close on the bed…
He takes the plunge.
Without so much as a post-woohoo cuddle, Melody rushes to the bathroom to take a pregnancy test. Success!
Exciting news all around! Not only is Melody pregnant again, but also, enough time has apparently passed since leaving the hospital that it’s now Iris’s birthday! (See, this is why I need to blog during gameplay, not weeks after. I have no idea what’s actually happened since the last time I played.)
Here’s what the little tyke looks like. Not so little anymore! Almost as if she skipped her toddler years entirely. BUT THAT WOULD BE MADNESS, WOULDN’T IT, EA? 😡
…Anyway, she’s kind of cute!
Here’s another view from the side, to really showcase her strong profile.
Iris definitely bears a strong resemblance to her mother, but so far, she looks pretty normal! It’s too soon to tell if she’ll become heir to this bizarre eugenic legacy, though. Sim kids have a tendency of growing into their more… unique facial features during adolescence, so we’ll have to wait and see what she looks like when she’s older.
Iris’s aspiration is Social Butterfly, and her new personality trait is Gloomy. These two characteristics seem to be at odds with each other. But hey, in a simulated world where even people like Melody can still find love, surely Iris will manage to make some friends…
Well, that’s it for now! I didn’t take any more pictures for this gameplay session, so this concludes Chapter 2. Stay tuned for baby number two, and, if my free time permits, maybe even a special, supertopsecret event!
