Chapter 1

This is part 1 of the Drifter Challenge featuring Blueberry Taffeta and Oster Winters.  I am doing this as close to the rules as possible, except that firstborn is not necessarily going to be the heir.  I will instead have a poll.

TS3W 2015-11-30 08-15-38-55

We start off with …Hey, stop that!

TS3W 2015-11-30 08-16-02-92

Yes, yes.  You’re in new love and you’re adorable.  Now stop it.

TS3W 2015-11-30 08-16-21-23

How about this.  You let me start the darn challenge and then maybe I’ll let you get some fun sexy tent boinking going.

TS3W 2015-11-30 08-19-25-51

Stop!  Step slowly back away from that $20.

TS3W 2015-11-30 08-20-07-33

What?  No travel allowed?  That’s okay.  $700.

TS3W 2015-11-30 08-38-57-41

There we go.  I ended up having to separate them by half a town.

Blueberry Taffeta was not always thusly named.  Just a few short days ago, she was a little alien baby stolen by the social worker.  Pistachio Vinson has had a major makeover and has lost her alien-ism, but still retains her fairy genieness.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-09-29-73

The challenge allows five community lots in the world, but I only got four due to the fact that the Dragon Valley grocery doubles up with the cheap restaurant.  There is that, City Hall, a fishing spot and a community garden, which has already been raided.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-11-25-36

Blueberry:  *RAGE* RAGE* *RAGE*
You don’t actually have any bad traits that would warrant this face while gardening.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-19-12-83

Oster is completely uncontrollable.
Oster:  *squintyeyed*  I’m in another ISBI?  Why do you hate me so?
Well, no, in fact, you can do anything you want and it won’t gain or lose me any points.
Oster:  Why?
I have no clue.
Oster:  Then my goal is to annoy from this moment on.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-21-13-83

I didn’t actually know where to buy a tent, so I just grabbed this expensive one from buydebug.

Oster:  I’m totally going to nail her in a tent right now.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-21-49-16

I got them the tent and a bbq.  After she planted a bit, she sold some stuff for a wall (for a future toilet) and a counter.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-24-37-24

Oh and you can’t use the bbq without a fridge.  They were barely surviving on the leftover produce. They finally got a public toilet thing and even painted the wall.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-27-38-71

Well, the garden seems to be a success.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-28-19-96

They are both green thumbs for the purpose of this challenge, which helps out because he is always watering or weeding.  Too bad he doesn’t harvest too.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-30-44-85

I bought him an easel to just keep him occupied.  Otherwise he follows Blueberry around and flirts with her, which distracts her and then they spend the day bumping uglies in the tent.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-31-40-96

I thought Blueberry would like fishing.
She doesn’t.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-34-58-01

This picture is brought to by Carl’s Sims 3, who’s wonderful walkthrough of Dragon Valley has pictures of where the spawners spawn.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-45-45-79

Are you insane?  We can’t afford that!
Blueberry: Au contraire voice of doom.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-46-40-21

Hey, Back away from that egg Oster!  No, do NOT talk to about fire!  Think GREEN.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-47-26-32

Oster: *grumbles*  Guess I’ll just go paint then.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-48-24-86

Oster: *stillgrumbling* If I can’t talk to that egg, then I’ll talk to the plants about the egg.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-50-41-90

Oster:  ..And then she SHOVED me away from the itty bitty egg!  Can you believe the nerve?

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-51-00-62

Blueberry:  Please, please, please be a green dragon.

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-51-04-60

Blueberry:  Yay!

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-51-54-86

Oster!  You are not authorized for dragon handling!
Oster: It bit me!

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-54-07-46

TS3W 2015-11-30 09-54-26-03

He brings in gems and fish it seems.  Well, gems and a goldfish.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-01-31-23

Oster:  I can’t wait until that woman makes us enough for a shower.
Pistachio: Me neither.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-04-25-45

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-06-33-42

Oster: Did you see what he did?
Blueberry:  Yes, now either help or find something to do.

I have never played with dragons much before, so this is why he is only allowed to help once a day.  They took new plants and sprouted them either one or two stages, which put the older plants at harvest after only a couple of days.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-12-26-97

Oster:  Alert the media!  We have a structure with pipes!   MOVE IT WOMAN, I WANT THAT SHOWER!

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-12-43-86

Oster: This calls for a celebration.  Maybe with teas and cakes.  Oh and dancing.  I love dancing.  Oh Glorious, glorious water.  How I love thee.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-13-01-91

Oster:  Sell more food, buy more things.
Blueberry:  So, should we buy some flowers?
Oster:  No.  We need more items with water coming out of them.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-15-13-01

Oster:  She is blocking me from water.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-23-17-74

I was eyeballng the Sixam for cash, but it bit Blueberry.  We did get to sell the other stuff though.  Her collecting has helped this week.  Since the bbq couldn’t be used without a fridge, it was sold and they continued to eat produce until a fridge was bought.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-33-19-01

She gardens in the early morning and spends the rest of the day hunting for seeds.  It’s exhausting for both of us.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-34-41-82

It does pay off though.  They got a stove, which wasn’t even the cheapest one and now they can make real food.  Every other harvest gets put in the fridge now.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-35-23-65

Oster:  I burnt it.
Yes, I saw that.  Good try, though.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-47-53-60

They could finally afford sprinklers, much to Oster’s happiness.  He now has something to do during every waking minute of the day.

TS3W 2015-11-30 10-51-21-27

After long hours bent over harvesting, Oster is right there to help her out…and himself since she usually wants to woohoo afterwards.

TS3W 2015-11-30 11-06-12-76

Of course you do.  Every woohoo has been a risky one, but no luck yet.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-09-03-81

Hey!  That’s not authorized usage of a pumpkin!  Note to self: Put those in the fridge immediately.  We need the collection helper, so every wish is granted even if it means spending money on a gem cutter.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-10-52-95

Pistachio brought them a rainbow gem.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-14-24-99

Cheap toilet and Oster was sure to break it.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-15-19-31

Her pumpkins are like the only light on the lot.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-16-58-42


TS3W 2015-11-30 13-22-39-50

Blueberry:  I divorce you!
Oster:  WTF? Why?
Blueberry:  I have no clue.  The rules just say I do for no apparent reason.

There really is no cause for this.  What purpose could this serve at all?  If I had read that while skimming the rules, I never would have done this challenge.  They were seriously going to do an Adam and Eve challenge, hence why they were married straight out of CAS.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-24-26-02

Oster breaks my heart by crying over the gold and silver ingots.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-27-42-36

Fuckin’ Blueberry got a hold of another pumpkin.  It’s as evil as she is pretending to be.  Also, her new collection of seeds includes MONEY TREES!  Yes!  Score!

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-28-35-61

Oster:  Oh Pistachio, whatever shall I do.  I can no longer sleep in the same hemisphere as that heartless bitch.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-30-49-90

Blueberry shows off some morning sickness.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-58-43-63

The lot is rearranged and the saved up money had to be spent on a structure to save them from the weather AND give poor Oster a place of his own to sleep.  They ran out of money before the walls could be painted.

TS3W 2015-11-30 13-58-55-81

They couldn’t afford to upgrade appliances, but they did get some chairs, a sink, stove, swing, and more counters.  The rules state that Blueberry will either have to remarry Oster or find a new man.  I still don’t get it, but Oster is way too upset to even think about romance yet.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-06-22-24

The garden is doing better than expected.  Pistachio still finds treasure daily, but he is only helping out the garden every other day now.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-07-07-43

Blueberry *wishes for a boy*

The rules also state that she must have two kids even though only the first one is needed.  *scratches head*   Then why do we need two kids?

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-09-00-16

Blueberry takes Oster with her to the grocery when he gets stir crazy.

Oster:  I’m too upset to follow her around.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-10-14-33

Blueberry:  I’m too tired to be here.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-10-49-33

I made my own homeless sims: i.e., I shoved bin sims on an empty lot and evicted them.

I couldn’t figure out why Noel Razzle did this, then realized it was a full moon.  Lunatic slap, anyone?

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-11-03-74

o.O  Oster likes being slapped around?

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-11-41-52

Oster finally has someone to play with.  I leave him to it.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-12-37-15

You can’t be serious!  I kept an eye on her lifebar, and it didn’t move.  Maybe it’s only good in Ambrosia and raw.  *shrug*

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-14-39-56

A quick check on Oster the next day and they are still here.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-15-38-13

He finally gets tired enough to go home.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-20-32-00

I left Blueberry alone after her gardening for the pregnancy.  I bought them a Frisbee as soon as his broken heart moodlet went away and now they can play and chat together again.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-50-50-98

Empress Taffeta joined the family when Oster wasn’t looking.   She took an instant dislike to Pistachio.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-52-44-50

The toilet has broken enough times that Blueberry can now “tinker” with the sprinklers.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-55-15-31

Our first death comes in the form of Stray Cat.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-56-50-35TS3W 2015-11-30 14-57-08-30

Afterwards, Death played in the sprinklers.  Blueberry just ignored him and went back to harvesting.  It is now a daylong job unless Oster comes out to weed.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-58-13-02

The pregnancy was obvious to everyone except Oster, apparently.  She told him about it and then instructed him to rub her belly.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-59-26-06

This dog is an asshole.  With only Blueberry for discipline, the garden is getting ignored.  Empress needs to be yelled at all day long.

TS3W 2015-11-30 14-59-53-50

Empress:  Now my bed is a work of art.  Let’s go do the chairs next.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-00-10-28TS3W 2015-11-30 15-00-23-80

Their relationship did not take a big hit with the divorce and he was easily back to his old self.  Even accepted her gift, a death flower.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-00-33-34

Busted for destroying chairs they can’t afford to replace.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-01-18-26

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-02-10-95

Then immediately went after another (scolded) and then caught guarding her dish.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-02-42-39

Then went back to the chair.  This is the worst fucking dog ever.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-04-30-85

Empress:  Dude, she broke your heart.  Remember?  I wasn’t even here, but the whole homeless population yaks about it to this day!

First flirt after the divorce was a success, much to Empress’ dismay.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-06-38-68

Oster:  I can’t sprinkler!  Plants are in the way!
Empress always follows up being naught by doing something adorable.  I checked Oster’s inventory once (way later in their lives) and found like 10 newspapers from Empress.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-07-28-64

Blueberry finally goes into labor and Empress finally finds her toy box.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-12-48-29

Blueberry:  It’s not the boy I wanted, but maybe next time it will be.
The baby is named Oceana.

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-38-56-97

Empress finally gets a much needed trait!

TS3W 2015-11-30 15-41-36-98

Concurrently, this happened.  I have no clue how she died (was scouring the world for collectibles and left them all alone for a bit), but I am just glad she had her own death flower today.  She is able to revive plants through her fairyness, but it failed and the death flower plant is gone.  We need another at this rate.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-06-06-82

I’m glad this is Sims.  Oster fed Empress a treat immediately after she pissed the floor.  Blueberry has forgotten where the fridge is apparently.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-06-40-08

Oster was lonely and his fun tanked.  Blueberry did her best to fix that.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-08-38-34

It’s Oceana’s birthday.  Blueberry took hour out of the swing, through the living room, through the front yard and then dropped her off outside.  Good job.

Empress: Help, I’m trapped by my toy!

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-09-11-39

Oceana is a clone.  Great.

Someone was telling me about using MC to play with genetics.  I did that, but she didn’t change.  We’re stuck with her.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-21-18-45

Blueberry took some time off of her chores and got the skilling done.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-23-17-42

o.O  Oster just hit level 9 gardening.  I then had Blueberry check out Pistachio and she gained a level just by chatting with Pistachio about gardening.  Oster spends way too much time chatting with that dragon!

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-28-13-28

Empress:  Did no one else not see that ghost just now?
Probably not.  Stray cat came out for a visit and Oster just kept on playing with the baby.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-32-43-58

Well, there it is , guys.  Blueberry has her perfect plants put right in a row.  If things go to plan, her LTW should be done soon.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-33-53-39

It’s getting to the point now that we just ignore everyone else and just garden.  Oster is failing a bit at daddy duty.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-39-24-17

Blueberry is pregnant again.  She wished for a girl this time, so poor Oster spent his points on fertility treatment.  Empress was caught eating the garden.

TS3W 2015-11-30 16-41-57-04

We leave you with another instance of Oster preferring the company of Pistachio over the importance of feeding the kid.

See you next time for more parenting fails…and gardening.  Way too much gardening.

  1. Ooh, this is a cool new challenge! I may just have to try it out, totally agree that small challenges are a lot of fun, especially when your legacies are annoying you.

    Blueberry and Oster look like a great pairing, annoying that first nooboo is a clone.

    1. It was very sucky that she was a clone. I like this challenge, but I think that the Sims 4 one is more fun. Maybe it’s because I haven’t explore it as much as 3.
