Potts 1

Year 17-21 (Summer) - Drama Sunday

Potts Family:
Alexandria Potts - Female Adult - Fortune - Become Hall of Famer - Libra
Ryan Potts - Male Teen - Pleasure - Have 50 1st Dates - Virgo
Lilly Potts - Female Teen - Romance - Become Celebrity Chef - Leo
Logan Potts - Male Teen - Knowledge - Become Prestidigitator - Leo
Luke Potts - Male Teen - Pleasure - Become Professional Party Guest - Pisces
Lydia Potts - Female Teen - Family - Reach Golden Anniversary - Capricorn

Last Round: Logan meets his match in Melody Tinker, there is a lot of dancing and Ryan speed dates through many girls/women trying for that 50th 1st date. Luke met and like Kircket Cooprider, Lydia gets involved with a Profitt. Lilly also takes a man to her bed, with Bob.

Camden and Lilly make an interesting match, both being romance, but I'm not sure Lilly is very interested since Camden is so mean.

The same cannot be said about Lydia and Michael Profitt, who are now in love and going steady.  I really like how the neighborhood match ups are going.  There are so many strong couples, and a variety of mixtures in their looks that make me excited to see the future generations.

Then the dating revolving door beings once again.  The first girl Ryan spends some decent time with and then we move on to date #13 (I think).  Lilly decides not to be left out of the dating parade and orders herself a date.  It's a good think Alexandra works a lot....the kids spend all the money she brings home on dates.

Lydia and Michael are very sweet together and really enjoying spending all their free time together.  Ryan can be seen taking a quick dating break to grab some food made by his sister.

Then the dating spree is back in full force for Ryan.  He bashes through dates 14 through 16 next.  He really is on a roll and while the dating gets very tiring he will be close, if not 1/2 way through the dates before heading to uni.

It is very common to see all the kids on the phone to their respective friends.  It's a good thing they all have cell phones or no one would ever be able to reach anyone.  They talk about a variety of subjects.

Lilly finds a boy that she seems to like quite a bit.  I do not remember his name currently but she decides to spend some time with him.

Alexandra makes a rare appearance to hang out with Ryan and a girl someone brought home from school.  I think she has the right idea, sort of....trying to control all these teenagers the tiniest amount would take more effort than Alexandra probably has.

Lilly and the blonde boy have a home date and enjoy playing some games.  This is a very teenage first date....lots of talking and playing and not much of anything else.  I'm sure eventually he'll become a notch though.

Meanwhile, Ryan has a date that was not from the matchmaker.  She gets brought home from school occasionally and Ryan does like her quite a bit.

She takes a chance and gives Ryan his first kiss.  His sister has bed an older man, his other sister and one brother are going steady and done plenty more....and actually his other brother has done more too....all younger.  But Ryan waits for his first kiss to be about 1/4 of the way through his dates.  It's kind of sweet.

The kids spend a lot of time together and they really do look out for each other.  Of course they also dance a lot most families in Fellowship One and in most of the simverse.

I found it sort of funny there was nearly simultaneous flower drop offs from the dates earlier that day.  Everyone enjoyed their dates quite a bit, even if one didn't do anything but play games, and the other had a kiss.

Back to the dating carousel with what I THINK are dates 18, 19, and 20.  Ryan is a very busy boy with the dating and is getting so very close to the 1/2 way point.  I would love to get him through 25 dates before he leaves, but time is running short and we'll just have to get through what we can.

Saturday finally came (this round felt very long) and the kids all took a trip to the lake.  Alexandra had to work and is doing quite well at her job, thanks for asking. Anyway, 

Luke and Kricket were still spending a lot of time together.  They really are sweet together, although they also spend an extraordinary amount of time in bed together too.

Ryan grabs onto date #21 before Family Sunday gets here and he is "uncontrollable" so we can see what craziness happens with the family.  He will head to uni tomorrow so this will be where he ends the dates for now.

Lilly and Camden have a moment in which we realize there is a chance they might hit it off.  I might match Lilly up with another romancer and just have them be the crazy romance house.

Blonde boy really really liked Lilly and brought her a present.  This dance sphere will be fun to have around with all the teens and a mom who needs body skills.

Camden also enjoyed his time with Lilly....they must have had a date, and he brought them a telescope.  This family suddenly looks respectable on the outside of the house.

Luke instantly want to use the dance sphere and hops in.  His mom, Alexandra comes out to watch and cheer him on.  She may also be able to provide some pointers.  She is in pretty good shape for her job.  Sadly, nothing helps Luke.

Alexandra hops in the next morning to try her luck and show her kids how to do it.  She manages to stay in and really gets going in it.

It's time for family Sunday, and we have started to do things a little differently once again.  Instead of just inviting the intended over we are inviting the intended and all their family.  This will get the families to mix a little more and possibly invite a little drama.  Alexandra came home with a friend, in the black and red jump suit who will also join them.

We forgot Risto in uni for the Coopriders, but the rest are here for Kricket and Luke.  The Profitt clan shows up for Michael and Lydia.  This should be fun with Bob in the mix.  Melody Tinker is is also brought over, her dad already here and I forgot to bring the mom.  Probably just as well since first Michaell gets upset over a perceived cheat.  Not sure by who.

Then we discover ANOTHER creepy aunt moment when Sandra Profitt makes a pass at Craig Profitt, who quickly falls in love with her.  This could be why Michaell was upset, I think her and Craig had a quick fling.

 Then Lilly, who had been chatting up her mother's beau, starts making out with Bob right in front of him.  He's really supposed to be there for Alexandra who had to go to work again, so I guess her teenage daughter is a good substitute. 

The party starts to move inside and things seem to smooth out a little bit.  Melody and her dad, Stephen do a duo dance for everyone interested in watching.  Everyone else was mostly behaving themselves.

Then Alexandra's guy left for the day and said good-bye in a way that surprised Lilly and myself.  Lilly didn't mind, but I sort of did.  I thought you were going to be good for Alexandra random sim!  Bob, of course, doesn't mind in the least.

Ryan decides to leave for uni while Family Sunday is starting to wrap up.  I don't blame him, go to uni, where life will likely be less crazy than this.  Who knows with the new group though, they may be worse.

 Many of the members are still here, including Craig Profitt, who has already proven he doesn't mind making out with an old lady.  Michaell show's she might be getting a bit particular with her appearance.

Luke and Logan work to fix up, repair and clean the kitchen which the multiple guests have left in a shambles.  It take awhile, but soon everything is back to normal.

Craig has one more shocking moment for us on this Family Sunday when he kisses Alexandra good-bye before heading home.  It was quite a family Sunday.

So with that craziness complete, and Ryan off at uni the summer comes to an end.  It has been quite a ride for this family so far, and next round the house will become very empty as all the kids will be in uni.  Alexandra may be able to get some screen time then.

Cooprider 1

Year 17-21 (Summer) - Ups and Downs

Cooprider Family:
Layce Cooprider - Female Elder - Knowledge - Become Mad Scientist - Leo
Siba Cooprider - Female Elder - Fortune - Become Criminal Mastermind - Libra
Celeste Cooprider-Tinker - Female Adult - Family - Become Captain Hero - Libra

Stephen Tinker - Male Adult  - Family - Become Captain Hero - Capricorn
Michaell Cooprider - Female Teen - Knowledge - Become Criminal Mastermind - Aries
Kricket Cooprider - Female Teen - Popularity - Become Professional Party Guest - Sagittarius

Last Round: The kids worked to find love matches in the hood.  Risto headed to uni, the family stayed busy and visited the lake.

The Cooprider's are still working on being friends as well as family.  Layce and Celeste reach best friend status while Stephen looks on.

Celeste is doing quite well in her Military job, even though she would really like to be working towards being Captain Hero.  The family needs money from somewhere and Stephen still isn't working.

As is true with most of the elders in the hood Layce and Siba know they will probably not be meeting their LTW.  Siba is a bit sad about missing out on making her fortune.

The kids bring home a lot of the neighborhood kids from school, but today we invited over the Pott's kids. Kricket wanted to hang out with her boyfriend Luke.

Kricket sneaks out once in awhile to hang out with her friends.  She still sneaks, even though everyone is so busy no one ever notices.

The sisters, Siba and Layce, are quite close and spend a lot of their time together.  They have discussions about all kinds of topics, study new things together and just hang out together in general.

Dancing is still a major pastime around the house, and even the kids that get brought home join in.  It's a great fun builder for them.  Kricket notices she also was wearing matching pants with a boy in her school.

Everyone wanted to invite Risto over, so he made a visit to the family home, without Donatella.  Kricket's boyfriend, Luke Potts, also came over.

Luke and Kricket are taking steps in their relationship.  They are cute, and their genetics are different enough to keep things interesting as long as they stay together.

Celeste is still not getting pregnant, although not for lacking of trying on Stephen and Celeste's part.  They are beginning to give up on the idea of having a baby of their own and Stephen buys a womrat to fill that gap.

Then, tragedy strikes the family early in the morning of February 19.  It's year 20 in the hood and Siba Cooprider is taken to the hereafter with Layce looking on.  Layce is devastated to loose her sister.

After losing Siba the family takes a trip down to the lake to get out of the house for awhile and be a family together. Luck still isn't with the family as Stephen gets taken in by a pick pocket who steals all the money from his pockets.

Layce knows that her time is also coming to leave the physical sim plane and begins to make arrangements and give away her personal belongings.

Life does begin to get back to normal, lots of studying, homework, meals and conversations going on.  The house still feels small for so many people living there, and they still don't have much money for furniture and life is starting to look up.

Celeste decides if she can't have a baby that is a puppy is better than nothing and so a small little white puppy is adopted.  I don't remember the puppies name right now, but I believe it is a he and very cute.

Then late on the 19th of November, exactly 8 months after her sister, Layce gets taken to the great beyond.  She was more prepared than Siba and even gets a hula girl.  It was 9:13 PM when Layce faded away with Grim.

One good thing to finally happen to the family is, Stephen and Celeste found their dream jobs...well almost.  They are both now working for SimCity's finest....well ok, The Fellowship's finest and are working towards being Captain Hero's.  Stephen realizes he needs to get into shape and makes good use of Celeste's military training ground.

Then it's time once again for Family Sunday.  We invite Melody Tinker over, but decide Wanda probably wouldn't want to come.  Risto also arrives from uni with Donatella with him.  I wonder if Risto and Donatella will be in a bubble like Miles and Aquamarine.

They quickly show us that will not be the case as Donatella being dancing alone and Risto goes off to talk to someone else.  Melody and Michaell are getting to be decent friends, which will help Melody break into the group at uni.

Melody is getting along pretty well with everyone in this family, and we see that in this case, blended families are working decently well.  Kricket and Melody play some hacky sack and Risto is once again on the move.

All of the kids...except for Michaell (who I think was just sitting in another area of this room) all eat some lunch together.  It gives Melody a chance to get to know her step-brother and his intended a bit better.

Yes, life is really starting to look up and both Stephen and Celeste are very happy with their new jobs and their life together.

Late one night Celeste hurries to the toilet to be sick.  It would appear that Celeste is finally pregnant.  Then we realize that is actually happening...

Unfortunately, without me, and without Celeste ever showing a sign of being pregnant, she miscarries the baby.  It's a very sad night for Celeste and Stephen as they are starting to feel their baby dreams slipping away.  However, it is also a special night for Michaell.

After one more game of chess with Melody Michaell hops in a taxi to take her to uni where she will being the next chapter of her life.  She never found a love interest around town, so hopefully uni will offer more exciting prospects.

Kricket "celebrates" her sisters success in her own way.  Next round it will be time for Kricket to head off to uni, where she will probably continue to date her boyfriend Luke.

The summer was kind and unkind in many ways to the Coopriders and they can only hope fall will be a little more forgiving.  It will also see the return of Risto to the family nest, probably.  He is the heir, but someone should also keep the Romero house going while the boys are in uni.  Time will tell how it all plays out.
