Edward - Grow up - Beginning wishes - Win a game against Thomas Lothario, tell an inside joke, be BF with Thomas Lothario, talk to Gale Lothario.  First wish fulfilled - Talk to Ida Burb (After school).

Huh.  Apparently I missed a townie getting gobbled up by the Dreamer's cowplant.  hahahaha!  Another one for the Dreamer graveyard.

Ida Burb and Edward Dreamer
Edward makes friends with more kids in the neighborhood.  He showed up alot in the Lothario home as an after school friend.  Now he is bringing home his own friends.

Dirk calls out for a kitten.  Another cat factory in the works.  He would have preferred a puppy, but there were none available, where there are loads of cats.

Frank Dreamer
It took until the wee hours Tuesday, but Frank took care of his LTW. Go you, Frank! 

Emma Copur and Frank Dreamer
Don and Ivy Lothario's daughter Emma comes home on the bus with Frank.  Neither one of them are impressed with the other.  hehe

Frank's dad reached his LTW TOC the same day.

Dirk Dreamer
Dirk's new LTW - Become The Law.  Now he wants to be an attorney.  heh

Townie Nichole (Thompson) Dreamer
Nichole gets her TOC as well on the same day.  Tuesday was a big day for everyone.  However.  Look at that.  The game SUBTRACTED $32,734 from the household funds for her promotion bonus.  What the heck????  I double checked the household's beginning funds per my prosperity spreadsheet, and yes, the funds were truly subtracted.  Not that they need the money really bad or anything.  Went to online forums, and the general consensus is this is caused by an outdated hack.  Hum.  How could that be, I did a fresh install of TS2 a few months ago and downloaded all the hacks new.  heh  I did have a bunch of stuff come over from an old hard drive, had a separate hacks folder, so I removed that.  Urg.  I just added the money back to their household funds.  AND...I have no hacks that are career related, nor do I have any downloaded careers.   What a mystery!!!

Nichole Thompson Dreamer
Really?????  Tuesday night.  Thanks, Risky!!!  Nichole is 6 days from elder hood.  Nothing like workin' 'em at the last minute.  Nichole is throwing lots of wishes to blog about science and film and literature, talk about hobby....ect...

Come Wednesday morning, Frank is still showing the same wishes he has shown all week.  Not being really helpful throwing me stuff that can easily be fulfilled.  He has held this same wish to see Jessica Ebadi's ghost since he was a toddler, and the woman has refused to come out and haunt.  Jessica robbed the Dreamers when Frank was a little tyke, then due to some diabolical scheme, was gobbled up by the Dreamer's cowplant last round.  heh  Anyway, no reason to keep Frank around, he has met his LTW, wants to go to Uni in the worse way, so he packed up and left.

Early Thursday morning, Dirk makes a career move finds a job as a corporate lawyer on the computer.  Go you, Dirk!

Alexander Goth, Nichole (Thompson) Dreamer, Dirk Dreamer
Thursday evening Alexander Goth pays a visit, after finding out that his son (and heir to the Goth mansion) was being chatted up  on the telephone by someone from this house.  He had to come and check it out, found out that it was Edward.  The parents of the kids enjoyed a dinner of blackened catfish.  Alexander seems to be extolling the virtues of dream dating. heh

It was during this visit that the Dreamer's third son was born whom they named Samuel.

On Friday, Andy Goth the cat ages up, and Nicole immediately calls out for a mate for him.

Enter Ginger Oldie, who is already having good thoughts about new baby Samuel.

Dirk fulfills a wish and reaches TOC again.  Now he wants to be a space pirate.  It is great to rack up all these career rewards.

Edward Dreamer and Henry Goth
Saturday finds Edward wishing to spend time with Henry Goth, and to make BF with Ida Burb and Margaret Caliente.  Since it is the second day of spring, a garden has already been laid out, and Dirk earned his bronze in gardening , and now has thrown all kinds of romantic wishes, including ask sim on date.  This will be easy to get Dirk and Nicole's wishes in for the day.  Luckily Nicole is very close to elderhood, so no chance of getting pregnant.  *whew*  It will be nice to see her throw some other kinds of wishes other than 'write novel, read novel, sell a best seller, watch movie, blog...ect'

Samuel Dreamer and Nichole (Thompson) Dreamer
Saturday also saw the Dreamer boys grow up.  What a cutie patooty!  Sam's wishes upon growing up:  Buy a toy, learn to walk, talk potty.  Seems like reasonable wishes to me!  As soon as Sam grew up, Dirk rolled 'have a baby'.  I don't think so.

Dirk Dreamer, Edward Dreamer, and Nichole Dreamer
Well I don't know what Dirk is scowling about.  Is it the fact that this boy is Nichole's by abduction?  He didn't seem happy at all about Edward growing up.  Nichole was happy to see her boy grow up.  Ed rolled Pleasure Sim, LTW - become a game designer.  His wishes upon growing up:  Be BFFs with Ida Burb, Thomas Lothario, BF with Margaret Caliente, and buy a cell phone.  Cell phone was locked in, and off to town he went.

Early Sunday morning, Nicole's preferred career came up on the computer in Athletics, and she grabbed it, hiring in as an assistant coach.   It would have been nice to keep her an Ecological Guru so she could stay home a lot for Sam, but she is two days from turning elder, so she took it for prosperity points.

Townie Caroline London and Edward Dreamer
Ed harbored a wish to flirt ever since he aged up, and knew no one well enough to do it with.  He attempted a flirt to cashier Michelle Kearney when he bought his cell phone, but it was no go.  On Sunday he finally called the Matchmaker, and received this girl.  Two bolts.  Caroline is the same girl who called a teen Dirk Dreamer on a regular basis for chat.  Ed and Michelle had a successful date, and Ed was able to get his five wishes in this day.

And this is where we leave the Dreamers for this round.


Townie Ti-Ning Dalton - Death by Cowplant

Darleen Dreamer - Death by flames
Doggone it...Jessica Ebadi just won't haunt...hehe


Dirk:  Ending wishes - Grow up well, Andy the cat learns to come here, play catch, stargaze, influence someone to garden, play computer game.  Dirk will turn elder next round.  Early in the week, Dirk suffered from the 'buy me' syndrome, and wanted a pet.  When I closed out the lot, I removed from his inventory a helicopter, a drum set, and a bass, among other things.  As the week wore on, he wanted to play catch or toss football, get TOC, garden.  The first day of spring was romantic type wishes.

Nicole:  Ending wishes:  Sell a great novel, grow up well, buy a vacation home, teach Samuel a nursery rhyme, buy a tree, and Edward gets a scholarship.  It was almost flashbacks of the types of wishes she used to throw in college.  Blog about science or film and literature, read a book.  Write a book.  Sell a book.  Ugh.  Toward the end of the week, she started to mix it up a little.  Perhaps having Sam helped her out.

Edward:  Ending wishes - Buy a stereo costing $1,800 and $2,700, buy a game costing $3,000, and buy a bubble blower.  Heh.  A chip of the old block, buy me, buy me, buy me.  I don't forsee him wanting to go to Uni, so he checks the computer daily hoping to get a teen job in gaming to give him a jump start on his TOC and LTW.

Samuel:  Ending wishes:  Talk to Dirk and Nicole, play with Dirk, be tickled by Dirk.  Had all toddler wishes fulfilled to walk, talk, potty.  Then wanted interaction with his parents.  All in all, a good play with the Dreamers.

Have fun, and keep on Simmin!



  1. Didn't some of the careers have bugs like that since forever that EA never fixed? I vaguely remember seeing talk about careers that had negative bonuses like that, and it being an EA glitch. If so, there might be fixes for it somewhere.

    Good round :)

  2. I've never seen that with the Natural Science career before, but hey, maybe she was having to donate to a sect or something? You know these hippie types- they aren't all peace and love. heh.
    Great round, all the boys are growing up. Andy Goth is a cute cat. Frank and Emma weren't getting on so great then, maybe he find someone nice in college. Strange about the no-show ghost, maybe next time? :)

  3. Samuel is adorable! Cannot wait to see what he looks like when he grows up. I laughed at George's starting wishes. Maybe he was still wanting to see her ghost, but starting to feel a little bad about it. :D
