Veronaville Round 4 - Capp - Tybalt and Rene

Ah, here we are in Veronaville.  The last time  ASimWen played this hood was back in February 2014.  That is way too long!  Let's get on with it!

All who live here:

Rene (the Atrociously Evil Witch) Capp - Knowledge - Wants to Become Chief of Staff.  Won't happen.

Tybalt worked up his relationship with Rene back in the day when he threw a wish to have a kiss. Rene was the lady he had the most points with and so it was.  Rene wishes to be saved from death, win a gaming competition, buy electronics, and see a wolf.

Tybalt Capp - Popularity - To Have 20 Simultaneous Best Pet Friends

Tybalt wishes to entertain, meet someone new, hustle pool, and play with (anyone).

Puck Summerdream - Popularity - Become a Celebrity Chef

Puck wishes to invite someone over, talk, play with, and entertain.

Hermia (Capp) Summerdream - Family - Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens

Hermia is married to Puck.  She wishes play with, talk, entertain, and have a baby.

Monday was easy.  Many wishes were filled for all to talk, play and getting along as a family.  The family dynamic really changed with Juliet moved out and married Romeo, and then Consort died.  Possibly the only person who did not get 5 wishes filled on Monday was Rene.  Tybalt has that wish to befriend 20 pets so much time is spent with and all the dogs Hermia is raising for her Raise 20 Pets wish.

Hermia being the ultimate Family Sim, threw wishes for cooking skills.  Eventually the chef from Sue's Kitchen showed up to invite her to cook in his kitchen.

Tybalt spent much of his time in the dog pen, making sure they were well cared for.     Of course, many of his daily wishes surrounded the dogs.

He has worked up to 9 pet best friends by now, and wants one more to make 10.  Get this,and he will but halfway home.  He wants to command Abbey here for two easy wishes to rack up.

ASimWen did the math.  There was not enough pet BBFs in the works for Tybalt to reach the 10.  He needed to get a pet to come to the house to make friends with. Puck wished to have a party, so he invited his family over, along with one of the family pets, Snookie the cat.

Tybalt got on very well with Snookie.  In no time, their daily friendship was up to 100.  Given enough time, it the lifetime would raise high enough to bring Tybalt another BFF.

Juliet was happy to be home again eating with her sister, and had a good time talking with the Summerdreams.

One of the puppies on the lot grew up.  Off to Animal Control.  Tybalt cried and cried, as his relationship had grown to "Master" with this dog.

Puck wants to learn as much as he can about mechanical...and Tybalt wanted to help out a relationship in trouble.  So he learned couples counseling.  You never know.

After getting a few mechanical skill points under his belt, Puck wanted to interact with his wife, finally.  He rolled play with, talk to, admire.  He was finally in platinum!

Tybalt wished to play a little chess, and Knowledge Sim Rene sat down to play as well.

It seemed there was not enough opportunity for Tybalt and Rene to get time together.  Their time was short.


Two more puppies grow up.  ASimWen though that these dogs looked nothing like their parents, Abbie and Leroy.  Took a look at the family tree, and these doggies were adopted, apparently.  Off to Animal Control they went, then it was time for Abbie and Leroy to try for more pups.  But alas, Abbie was too old to be a mamma again.

Doggie Genetics

A new potential mate was brought in for Leroy.  She was fierce!

Apparently Tybalt already knew Haya.  The played together like old friends, their friendship scores were already 100/100

Haya immediately put Abbie in her place.  She already knew Leroy too, and in no time puppies were in the works.  Perhaps she was raised here in the past? 

It had been a great day for Tybalt and Rene.  Breakfast together, a little chess.  Rene had to attend to her part time job then upon her arrival home met a very unwelcome visitor.  Goodbye Rene.  Not many wishes were fulfilled for her, there really was no desire to keep her around.

Poor Tybalt did not see Grimmie come and take his wife.  He had passed out from the heat while playing in the dog pen.  Gotta keep those doggie friendship up!  Hermia splashed him with water bringing him back around.

This same day, Puck was called out on an outing.  Hermia went too, it was great  to get out of the house.  (Secretly, ASimWen wanted to shake up her wishes).  Off to Four Corners the group went.  The outing was Fun, and everyone was glad to have attended.

Oh yes, Hermia's wishes shook up alright, but all to adopting more pets.  I am thinking she is not happy with waiting around for them to be born before they grow up. 

Meanwhile Tybalt continued making friends when this friendly wolf wondered up into the yard.  Thinking he could make a quick doggie friend, Tyblat taught this wolf to play dead, but the friendship meter did not move much. 

Early Sunday Haya and Leroy's puppies were born.  Two boys and a girl.  Tybalt wasted no time making friends. 

Finally Hermia threw some wishes for some new kitchen appliances, to match the cooking skills she had been wishing for and fulfilling.  Good show!

And this is where we end this week with the Capps.

Ghostly Occurrences

The ghosts at Capp Manor are a problem for sure.

Poor Puck was constantly scared by this one incessantly...who's urn is inside the house.  He nearly died.


Rene - I must admit this was rough to get through.  It was extremely fun last round bringing Rene into the household, but then found that everything she wished for was obnoxious and difficult to play.  Tybalt and Rene did not throw any wishes for each other at all.  So she came and went to her job and finally had her party.  Good riddance. 

Tybalt - Ending wishes - Still holds the Make 10 Best Pet Friends wish, locked in. Talk about hobby, play guitar, and  dance with someone.  Really though he would meet the 10 best pet friends by the end of the round.  *sigh*  It occured to ASimWen this round that Tybalt needed to have an heir so the Capp name could carry on at Capp Manor.  He may just end up adopting because he is so disagreeable to play.  But at any rate, at the beginning of the round Tybalt threw lots of wishes to interact with the dogs, but by the end of the week wanted to play the instruments out in the courtyard to gain creativity points. 

Puck - Ending wishes - Be friends with (townies) Regina and Johnathan, win a dance competition, get creativity 7.  Puck was easy to keep in platinum once he got over a bad funk he had the first couple of days.  He won a lot of aspiration points by getting a good reputation, hitting the phones and making friends, and would always throw a skill wish when needing it for job promotion.  He checked the computer every day for his desired job in culinary, but it never came up.

Hermia - Love this girl.  Ending wishes - Win a cooking contest, max Creativity, win the Music and Dance Hobby Plaque, and win a dance contest.  I remember last round having her toiling away at the toy bench to get the gold badge so the water wiggler so the dogs would not have to be bathed.  This round I realized she was not maxed out on creativity, so it was taking forever.  So she worked on that this round, and eventually started throwing wishes for creativity over cooking. 

Next is the Montys - Isabella.

Remember, family is always first. 

Thanks for reading!

Round 6 Pleasantview University

University Round 6.  Four new Sims are joining this round, having left two still there the last play.  It was an engaged couple.  They are:

Joseph Burb, son of Jennifer and John Burb, and Anna Broke, daughter of Dustin and Angela Broke. these two made it insanely clear that they were in love their very first day in Uni, and became engaged. Love them.

Next, we examine the new Sims from the neighborhood joining them.

These Sims are Joseph's twin brother and sister, Ida and Harry. Now this makes John and Jennifer empty nesters. I am sure one of them (or maybe both) will return to the homestead.
George McCarthy. I remember sending him thinking he and Ida where an item...but we will see. Also, I have never played George. Can you believe it? Well I am about to have my chance.
Henry Goth, heir to the moldy Goth mansion. His daddy is Alexander, and his momma is a gal from Twiki Island whom Alexander wished for from the wishing well.

First Wishes:

Anna Broke:  Pleasure - Wants to be a Celebrity Chef.  Anna is a Senior and will be graduating this play.

Anna wants to sell a masterpiece, buy a painting worth $5,000, have a party, make some money, and have tent woohoo.  That last one locked in.

Joseph Burb: Romance - Want to Become a Rock God.  Joseph is a Senior and will graduate this round. 

Woo now these are interesting wishes.  We all know the Romance Sim wants a dream date, and wants some sort of woohoo.  But he also wants Brooke to be cured of being a witch while wanting to become one himself a the same time.  Oh, and he also wants to talk with George.  Gee, I might just have to lock in that witch wish just because it is fun.

Henry Goth - Knowledge - Wants to be an Education Minister. - Freshman

Henry wants to do research with someone, max skills, go to class and do his term paper.  Ho hum.

Harry Burb - Knowledge - Son of John and Jennifer.  Wants to be Chief of Staff

Harry wants to do his homework, write his term paper, get the Hobby Plaque in Science, and go to class.

Ida Burb - Family - Daughter of John and Jennifer - Wants to reach her Golden Anniversary

She wants to flirt, have her friends Eddy Dreamer and Robert Wolosenko come to Uni, and get fit.

George McCarthy -Fortune -Wants to Become a Business Tycoon

George wants to do research with someone, make $100, go to class, and write term paper.

Gotta love fortune and Knowledge Sims with their Uni related wishes.  I am still be wildered why Family Sim Ida wanted to go to Uni..probably to major in MRS.

Let's get on with playing!


Anna's wishes were easy peasy..would roll Go On A Date.  Being that her fiancee Joseph was around, it was no problem to keep up wishes.  Never wanted to do term paper, would influence to have it done for her.

See above.
Dating, dating.  Would throw lots of wishes to use the dorm musical instruments as he had a Music and Dance hobby plaque in his inventory.

Seemed like a lost puppy.  Do term paper came in handy, and wanted lots of research time with other people.  He skilled heavily as a kid, so did not throw wishes to skill up.  Had max all skills locked in.  Did lots of miscellaneous stuff like go to class, ect.

George McCarthy's one true hobby is gaming, so it is constant wishes to play PC games, play console games.  One interesting thing happened, out of the blue...

He threw a wish to get engaged to Ida.  Checked his memories and he and Ida had dated a lot as teens.  They had a one bolt attraction.  According to 5 Wishes if a playable rolls engagement, so it was.

It wasn't hard, they had to date as the Propose/Engagement option wasnt there until they fell in love as adults.  Ida was so happy, as a Family Sim to get her man all lined up.

Before becoming engaged to George, she wanted to talk with her dad John Burb a lot on the phone, and phoned him every day.  Also wished to serve food, a couple of times a day.  Getting in practice to serve food to her family!  One of George's attractions is unemployment.  Being that Ida doesn't want to work (Reach Golden Anniversary) it seems they are a good hookup.

Being a Family Sim, she does not want to see couples break up.

So she learned couples counseling. Maybe she could be of help to unhappy Sims in the future.

Harry threw lots of wishes to play the crazy instruments, but realized a big wish fulfilled:

He fulfilled the wish to get the Science Hobby Plaque.  Go you, Harry!  It came through while he was blogging about Science.


Still it was continual wishes to date, Joseph in particular. Easy.

Graduated, and back to Pleasantview.

Ditto above.   :)

Graduation, back to Pleasantview.  Anna and Joseph will be moving into the Angela and Dustin Broke home.  Didn't have time to do anything with those witch wishes...will see if he brings it up again back in the hood.

Continued with the boring Knowledge Sim wishes of do research, go to class.  However at one point Anna spun up "Ask Henry To Pledge"  Didn't realize Anna was a member of the Tri Var Sorority.  Heh.  When she approached him to ask to pledge the choice wasn't there I think because they were in the dorm and not in the greek house.  So he asked her if he could join.

Only two girls showed up to admit him in, being that Brittany Upsnot had already moved out of the greek house and over to Pleasantview.  Socially awkward Henry Goth got into the girls sorority by "Imparting Knowledge" to both girls.  They found his brains sexy schmexy!

George stayed the course of wanting to play games.  He eventually spun up the wish to get the Hobby Plaque in Gaming, which was locked in. If he rolled anything else it was along the lines of do research, go to class.  Par for the course for a Fortune Sim. Rolled zero wishes for his fiancee, Ida Burb.

Continued wanting to serve up food, but switched from wanting to call dad to making friends with her professors.  On the first day of spring she rolled "Kiss" and "Flirt" which lucky George was the recepient of.  ASimWen hopes those two will be okay.

Just sort of floated around the dorm.  Being that the other Sims were paired off, Harry did not get the screen time by ASimWen that he deserved.  Now that two have moved out, perhaps that will change.


Henry - Henry started to come out of his Knowledge Sim funk a little bit.  Realizing wishes for him is talking about hobby, playing the drums and doing research.  He constantly rolls Dance With Someone, but no one wants too so he gets rejected a lot.  Did not roll any romance type wishes in the springs. 

George -  Even though he is now an engaged guy, he does not throw wishes to do things with Ida.  It is play a game on a console, play chess, play a game on the PC.  Games, games, games.  He influences other Sims to do his term paper so he can play.  Still has not gotten that hobby plaque though.  Maybe it is stuck.

Ida - Now wishes to make friends with her peers, wants to serve food.  When Spring sprung, she started throwing wishes for hugs, kisses, and at one point even rolled Ask Sim on a date.  So, she and George had a nice date, getting wishes in for both of them that day. A genie lamp appeared on the lot, and Ida wished for the ability to cheat death.  After all, she does not want to leave her family before her time if she can't help it.

Harry - Harry turned a little weird.  First day of spring he wanted a kiss.  Off to the wishing well he went.  His kissing partner:

An old professor. ASimWen said no, no, no, and didn't allow him to think about her anymore.  Then a day or two later it was this young lady:

ASimWen likes her, will let it ride to see how Harry acts later.  Harry also made a wish of the Genie...

He wished also to cheat death.  Then...

He learned about Lifelong happiness.  It was a good and active semester for Harry.


Like everyone every single morning upon waking up, Henry rolled "talk about hobby". Then when it was time for afternoon recreation, he would roll "dance with someone" but alas it was not to be, none of the women had interest in him.  He would flop every time and lose aspiration points. So he decided to make use of the wishing well and wished for friends.

Ah.  Now we know why he would flop when trying to get a girl to dance with him.  Alexander Goth's son was gay.  heh  So now he will be looking for a partner.  ASimWen has played this particular Sim before..this "Zion" in the picture.  Henry will find someone else.

What did George do in Semester 4?  He finally won the hobby plaque in gaming.

For about a day after getting the plaque, the wishes for doing gaming related things slowed down and George started wishing for "buy me" "buy me".  ASimWen did not cave and spend the simoleons, so he went back to game related wishes.  Easy enough.

Ida continued dishing up food every day for all the students in the dorm.  Occasionally she would roll "play with George" or "flirt", of course all that was tossed in George's direction.   Once all her studies were taken care of, and once her wishes were out of the way, she worked on her one true hobby.

Fitness.  Go you, Ida!

Harry is the consummate nerd.  Case in point:

Harry rolled out of bed early in the morning at 6 am.  Instead of taking care of the morning tasks, he logged right on to work on his Science blog.  Silly Harry.

And that is it for this Uni play!  Two years is enough to play at once.  Now it is onwards to 5 Wishes in Veronaville.  Not nearly so many lots there, will be back in Pleasantview in no time.  See ya!

Family First!  Always!~
