Kyra Winter: Chapter 1

I have to admit that I am not sure how well I will do on this.  It seems a bit easier for Sims 3.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_12_14_55_039

Kyra Winter is doing my Sims 2 version of the OWBC.  She is having a University start.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_12_50_25_319

Her predestined hobby was quickly found to be Cuisine.  The goal is to have that and her LTW done before graduation.  Oh, and her LTW is super easy.  Max 7 skills.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_12_50_59_478

Kyra might like Cuisine, but it sure does not like her.  She quickly learns the sprinklers are her friend.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_12_51_48_827

She also finds college life to be hard to deal with also.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_13_37_45_420

But she does love to study.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_13_52_25_678

She upgrades the cheap Uni computer after some digging.  Now she spends her time between schoolwork and skilling by blogging about Cuisine and writing her novel.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_14_00_46_377

Shock befell Kyra when the Hobby Chef came by and gave her directions to the secret location of the hobby whateveritscalled.

Also, Sherry the Hobby Chef and Kyra are a 3 bolt attraction and it took maybe three interactions before ACR decided that they needed a first kiss.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_14_03_03_894

Her pork chops were no match to the other entrants and she won her first cooking competition.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_14_03_39_771

Sherry said her getting into a legacy house was a slam dunk.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_14_06_00_597

And Kyra agreed.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_13_47_33_628

She maxed her skills midway through uni.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_14_47_54_125

This freed up a lot of time to finally meet her dormies.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_17_14_15_637

Clean the bathroom and influencing the men to do the same.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_17_22_54_706

She took on the Robot station.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_17_31_30_443

And only managed one date with Sherry.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_17_45_31_313

It was a smustling good time.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_21_11_19_933

She hit up the university library one last time.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_21_21_31_255

And finally got abducted by the Secret Society.  She did raid them of some stuff, but in the end, she decided to keep it in her inventory instead of using it.

i.e., it was not mentioned, but it felt like cheating.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_21_47_20_907

Her last act at university was getting fit after a shower.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_21_50_17_362

Then it was time to head back home…with the hopes of an outfit change.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_23_01_48_328

Back in the main (empty) town of Uberlicious (by Sleepycat), she had enough money to start her house.  She did have to raid her bank account too.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_23_06_01_523

Sherry was immediately invited over for a date which ended in marriage.  Kyra was pretty horrified when she moved in with $1.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_23_34_42_629

Kyra had enough money to buy a starter shop aptly named Winter’s Robotics.  Sherry did the sales and Kyra did the register.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_04_23_44_59_199

And the restocking.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_01_07_398

Sherry has maxed Culinary and insists that they have lobster for every meal.  Kyra tries to stop her, but she is no match for Sherry’s attachment to the stove.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_05_05_885

Sherry did finally get rid of her culinary outfit.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_11_29_308

Kyra is aware of my no alien sexism mod, and so she endlessly summons aliens.

To no avail.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_16_05_939

Sherry got a job in culinary.  She is a family sim who wants to have a Golden Anniversary.  Kyra is climbing the ranks of Entertainment.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_18_01_631

Kyra’s book, “An OWBC A Founder’s Journey” sold well and brought in some much needed cash.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_25_40_399

Kyra is still forced to eat lobster, but at least Sherry is finally getting started on her predestined hobby of Athletics.  Luckily she was at level 5 by this point.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_32_03_833

Business is booming (when they show up) and they got a good review and a Best of the Best award.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_35_37_670

While Sherry gets a bronze sales and bronze restocking badge, Kyra just fails at it all.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_38_55_914

Kyra tops Entertainment and redeems her career reward.  Sadly, it has a mood boost, so it is kept in her inventory.  She joins Education for her second career.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_40_48_134

She has had her gold badge in Robotics forever, but she finally maximizes her enthusiasm during the making of her simbot servo.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_42_39_268

Sherry might be good at discovering stars, but she fails in her career.  This is her third time getting to level 2.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_44_24_139

Kyra was finally abducted.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_53_33_511

Geez, this took way longer than it should have.  Stella the Servo was finally made.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_00_53_53_104

Stella glitched up the house (it might have been the fact that ACR was trying to assign her attraction scores?) and Sherry and Kyra ended up deleted.  I used the teleporter cat to move them back in and then had Stella move out.  They were only gone a few hours, but it was long enough that Kyra had her second first pop since she got deleted after the first first pop.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_02_55_212

The fixer upper car was bought and the girls worked on it together.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_21_48_559

Betsy was soon born, she is the chosen Bad Apple.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_32_30_309

Kyra adds three more flamingos to the army then goes to hunt down the gnome.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_39_45_815

Not much happens now.  Betsy ages up and Sherry is her main caretaker while Kyra makes the replacement servo, Simon.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_45_20_095

It is so hard not being able to check on her.  This was the moment Kyra was waiting for.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_48_07_520

I swear it took two days because I had to catch the potty thought bubble when someone was around for her.  The other skills were pretty easy.  She just had to wake up from her nap, eat and have a bath and she was ready to skill.  She spent most of her toddlerhood platinum.  She is also the happiest little thing I have ever seen.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_01_55_50_816

The store got up to level 5 and (finally!).  Kyra even managed her bronze sales and restocking badges.  Kyra decided to sell the shop.  There was just too many customers and not enough room.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_02_02_25_426

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_02_02_31_019

After the shop was closed I found Kyra crying.  Timothy Riley was poking and shoving at her.

So I had her kick his ass.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_02_03_40_483

Kyra looks so pleased with herself.  She also has her very first enemy.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_09_48_54_578

So far, the worst thing that has happened is that Betsy’s skin went default on me.  Every toy in the catalog is laid out for her.  She spends half her time on the block table and the other half with the dollhouse.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_09_49_45_278

Sherry continues to fail at work.  Kyra tops Education (yay bookcase!) and starts her third and last career in Natural Scientist.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_09_51_05_159

Sherry excels at (step) motherhood though.  I never have to worry about Betsy in all honesty.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_09_52_04_076

Even visitors cannot stay away from her.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_09_54_47_989

Just after getting the pop up about Betsy’s impending birthday, Kyra was finally abducted again.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_09_57_13_065

First broken appliance!  Then the toilet went too.  In 6 hours they can start fixing them.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_00_16_872

No! Don’t drink icky bottle!  In which Betsy looks at me, gives me grumpy face and pukes.

She then proceeds to block the fridge for three hours singing nursery rhymes.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_02_24_593

I found out I had a mod that got rid of the zone glow.  I removed it and came back in game just in time for the sink and toilet to get fixed.  Not even an hour later, the shower died.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_06_13_856

It was Sherry’s turn to rescue the gnome.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_12_18_444

Sherry got back to level 2 in culinary.  She was forced awake the next day in time to fix the shower.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_16_21_129

Simon was finally completed.  I forgot and had Sherry initialize him, so he does not have the skills and badges that Kyra does.  Ugh!

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_19_29_672

Sherry needs her gold robotics badge and she still needs to maximize her hobby.  Simon is addicted to the ballet bar.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_33_17_851

Kyra bought a bigger shop.  I only had her go long enough for us to check out the inside and see how Simon does on the register.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_44_20_218

Not only am I showing off the founding portraits, but Kyra is in labor!

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_44_45_122 Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_10_45_11_847

It’s twin girls!  One is Octavia and the other is Olympia.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_01_59_110

In which our Bad Apple becomes a child.  I can honestly say that not checking on her is the hardest thing ever.   It’s really fun to watch her though.  If someone wakes up, she makes their bed.  I assume she has high neat points.  Her and Simon tell jokes all day long.  I guess she is outgoing?

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_03_39_181

He is always dancing or reading with her.  His major want right now is to be her best friend.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_07_42_107

Not only did Kyra top her last career, but Betsy got out of bed to give her a hug.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_08_10_329

Now she won’t go back to bed!

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_11_22_797

The last mandatory pregnancy did not take nearly as long to happen as the others.  There might just be enough time for her and Sherry to have one together too.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_17_59_382

Then this happened.  I should have fenced him in for some unsuspecting idiot, but I forgot.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_41_05_341

Kyra arrives home from work and drinks her wife.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_51_00_329

Betsy’s first day of school finishes.  Her panel was green.  She cleaned up a few bottles and then I had Simon help her with her homework.  Her fun must have been high enough, because she did it without complaint.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_51_34_046

I want her top paranormal so she can resurrect Sherry, but I don’t know if she is allowed another career, even if I don’t count it.  First pop is the reason for this photo.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_52_54_136

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_53_41_119

Olympia (top) and Octavia aged up.  Kyra missed yet another birthday because of work.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_05_11_57_39_754

The last capture of the night was when the dance hobby lady woke up Betsy.  Betsy is always dancing with her mom or Simon.  She is so happy.  She will clean up after everyone, take a shower, watch tv and then go to bed.  I do forget to leave food out for her, so she is mainly living on chips at this point.

I can’t believe I got 5 play session in one update.  I am so eager to see Betsy’s stats and I know I can’t.  As of now, she stays either pale green or green.  She has never dipped into yellow.  It’s almost too easy (knock on wood…hard).  The twins on the other hand aged up and went straight to their blankets where they immediately got dirty diapers and their social tanked.

    • Thanks! I had a lot of fun with this one. Not sure if I like Kyra or Ocean better though.

      I love the O’s too! I think I got really lucky with Betsy. I always read horror stories about the bad apples.
