A quick warning there is sim nudity and swearing but all of it is censored in some way.
Just thought I would warn you just encase it's not censored enough.
Welcome back to Arborndale everyone! This time we’ll be following the Palmer Twins, Evelyn and Grace.
As a quick summary of the few things I've changed since last time this challenge has now become a Patriarch, meaning that only males can inherit the family name.
I’ve also decided that only the first born son can inherit the family name unless the first born is a girl. Also only the chosen heir of the family can go to college and only the chosen heir can remain in the house.
Private School, College, Vacations, Fire Alarms, Burglar Alarms, Sickness cures and resurrections are all banned until a certain career is unlocked.
The first girl born in the household will become a Bad Apple and will be uncontrollable until they move out into their own household.
You can then only control her until she finds a partner to move in with her, when she does she once again becomes uncontrollable.
Read the rules here to get the full list of restrictions and challenges I’ve created for myself.
If you have any questions about the mods I used then please don’t hesitate to ask but don’t ask about my CC because I can’t remember any of it.
So meet the Palmer twins. Yes they are identical but thanks to her new Supernatural status Evelyn looks completely different.
They also completely hate each other so this is going to be fun.-
Grace was quick to pick her dream job in the Science Track. It might not be her LTW but she is still a Knowledge Sim through and through.-
Evelyn, on the other hand, is housebound and starts getting ready to bring money into the house in her own way.
She’s not great at the moment but everyone has to start somewhere right?-
Miles: “So I can’t help but notice that nearly everyone in this town is gay.”
Evelyn: “Why would that bother you? You are also looking for a man, are you not?”
I’m going to assume that Miles is worried about his sister Ginger here seeing as she is one of the very few Sims who is straight.-
I spotted this lovely lady walking by the house and I quickly got Grace to greet her, especially when I spotted that she had elf ears hiding behind her hair.
Grace: “I’m Grace Palmer. This is going to sound strange but you’re actually really pretty and I think you should meet my twin sister.”
?: “You’re right, that did sound strange. I’m Luna Huffington.”-
I would just like to point out that this Toni person never phoned so we never got her number! Thanks for that waste of time there Luna.-
I have Grace introduce Evelyn to our little elf and the two of them seemed to his off great.
Evelyn: “So? I think you’re cute, what do you say about me?”
Luna: “I think you’re pretty cute too!”-
ACR and Evelyn’s Pleasure Aspiration kicks in and she immediately swoops into charm Luna in the corner.
Evelyn: “I always found Elves to be the most graceful of creatures.”
Luna: “Wait. I saw that! You’re a Vampire, aren’t you?”
Evelyn: “Are you seriously turning me down for that? You’re a bloody Elf!”
Luna: “According to Sim Law I am classed as a Human Sim, despite what my ears look like!”
Negative chemistry. I’m going to assume that either her Aspiration or her star sign is not compatible with Evelyn’s because she likes brunettes.-
The thing with starting with more than one Sim is that you don’t know who is going to get the 6:00 o’clock call.
Luckily for me, the call did come for Evelyn, meaning that she’s finally free to leave the house.
Evelyn: “Look, before I meet you I’m just going to warn you now the only reason I’m accepting this is because I’ve been waiting for the sun to go down and have been bored to death.”
?: “Look, lady, I’m a Downtown Sim, I understand the life of a vampire. Besides, I get paid for this. Now are you going or are you going to stand them up?”-
Turns out this trip was an attempt for the single men of Arborndale to try and get some with the new resident. Too bad they ended choosing the lesbian.
Evelyn: “Look I’m sorry that your blatant Woohoo call was ruined but maybe we could help each other? I'm looking for a women too.”
Red Head: “I wouldn’t worry about it. Those two aren’t even allowed to marry a Playable like you; they’re Townies from Bluewater Village.”
Goopy Copy: “Can’t believe Goopy is getting more women than me. I dress way better than he does and yet he’s the one woman sleep with?”
Other Blonde: “*Sigh* Forever alone to browse stores and waste people's time getting lost when the item I’m looking for is right in front of me.”
Evelyn: “*Quickly finishes meal* Well I’m done! It was nice meeting you guys hope you enjoy your misery!” *Turns into a bat and flies off*-
It turns out a lot of people in Arbondale like brunettes but only one of them eligible and even then they only had one bolt together.
Evelyn: “Oh come on! How hard is it to find someone to bang around here?!”
Spiky Chick: “I’ll sleep with you anytime!”
Evelyn: “Sorry, you are way too young for my tastes. Come back to me when you graduate college.”-
With Evelyn out of the house until sunrise Grace decided to take advantage and uses the Crystal Ball to summon this hunk a muffin.
Grace: “So this is going to sound really forward seeing as I don’t even know your name yet, but I think you’re really cute.”
?: “Funny. I was about to the same thing to you.”
Grace: “I’m Grace.”
Instant three bolts! Woo!-
Apparently, a simple flirt is enough to get Grace’s reputation bar filled up. Can anyone tell me the point of this thing?
I know that Sims with a high reputation will get a different greeting from other Sims but is there another point to it?-
As soon as the awkward first moments are out of the way, Grace wastes no time in making sure Sebastian is hers.
I looked away for just a second before another First Kiss scene came on. This time it was for Luna Huffington and another townie called Blossom Bloomfield.
I’m not even kidding; I love this game so much especially when it brings me wonderful names like that.
At least now we know why she wasn’t that interested in Evelyn, she already had someone.-
I love Sims with three bolts. They just can’t keep their hands off of each other; every time I look they’re touching the other in some way or following the other around the house.
At least I know where to find Grace if I ever lose her.-
It’s only Tuesday morning and already Grace has found her soulmate and a lullaby sounded.
Sebastian: “You know, with anyone else, I would say we were moving too fast but…”
Grace: “This felt natural right?”
What’s the best thing after WooHooing the one you love? Why, a big bowl of cereal of course. Every Sim knows that it’s excellent if you’re looking for a little one in your life.
Grace: “Look ‘Bastian, I know we’ve only known each other for a night but I don’t think I’m going to find anyone else like you in my life.”
Grace: “Will you marry me, ‘Bastian?”-
Sebastian: “Oh Grace! Yes. Yes, I would love to marry you!”
Why couldn’t Oscar be this easy? This literally took one day to get sorted out. Bloody Oscar.-
Grace barely had time to finish her cereal before the carpool pulled up for her first day at work.
All though denying it later Grace went to work basically floating on cloud nine.-
With her sister gone Evelyn takes another attempt at trying to find her own love.
Unfortunately, Chrissie Smuggle here doesn’t seem to appreciate it.
Chrissie Smuggle: “Look I’m sorry but you’re a little…big for me. Lose some weight and then we’ll talk.”
Evelyn: “You are aware I’m a vampire right? Do you not think that insulting me would result in losing your throat?”
Evelyn would know, that’s how so got this way in the first place.-
One last attempt and then we’ll be giving up for a later time. Evelyn decides to try the Crystal Ball this time to see what happens.
She got Bindi Pavich, the cook NPC from college. At first, I was disappointed at this but then Evelyn went in with a flirt right away and it was accepted.
Evelyn: “You know, for someone who works over a hot stove all day you look amazing.”
Bindi: “You are not a normal vampire but I guess I can see the irony in it. Someone at the end of life and someone who will never leave life.”
Cassie: “Hey there Sebastian~. Remember me? *Blows a kiss*”
Sebastian: *Shudders* “Nope. Sorry.” *Determinedly shovels cereal in his mouth*.”
Okay, maybe it’s a good thing Cassie and Evelyn didn’t get along. Cassie seems to find Sebastian hot and I know that would have caused trouble in the future.
I’m going to take the chance and introduce Sebastian now, even though he hasn’t moved in yet. I don’t get a good picture of just him after this so I’ll do it now.

Evelyn: “You’re really tense Bindi. You should relax a little.”
Bindi: “You try working in a dorm full of Young Adults that constantly die and wet themselves all around you all day and then see if you relax.”-
Grace returned home later that evening with a promotion and also a small bonus.
All though going to work while pregnant really doesn’t seem to work for poor Grace.
I love having this interaction enabled, it’s so cute.
Bindi: “Evelyn, I swear to Plumbob that if you bite me I will make you regret it.”
Evelyn: *Sigh* “Okay, okay.”-
- - - -
Evelyn: “Bindi, to be honest with you if you had met me before I moved here to Arbondale I probably would have turned you down flat. Now though, now I know that to find some things you’ve got to look a little deeper from the surface.”
Bindi: “Oh Evelyn…”
Evelyn: “Bindi Pavich, will you marry me?”
Bindi: “Oh Evelyn. That was probably the sweetest proposal I have ever heard, and I’ve heard a lot of them.”
Evelyn: “Wait for what?!”
Bindi: “Yes. Yes, I will marry you.”
Evelyn: “Okay…but what was that last thing you said?”-
Apparently, that proposal really was something.-
Wednesday rolled around and with it brought the first wedding of Arbondale! Looking at these two makes me wish that I started with winter instead of spring though, seeing as they’re dressed for Christmas.
Sebastian: “Wow! Look at all these people; I didn’t realize you knew so many people Grace.”
Grace: “Actually they’re more Evelyn’s friends. I just greeted them to get them inside so she can talk to them.”
Sebastian: “Well…you talk to me for yourself. Right?”
Grace: “*Sighs happily* Yeah.”-
I forgot to put the house up before the scene started! GAH!
I would like to proudly introduce you to the first newlyweds of Arbondale, Grace and Sebastian Palmer!-
Sebastian: “Uh…Grace? Where’d you go?”
Grace: “I’m over here. I’m going to cut the cake, you coming?”
It was at this point that I realized that while the camera was away from her Grace decided to start showing her pregnancy. Oh well, at least she waited until after the ceremony.-
Of course, Grace would be a cake shover.
Grace: “Wow rude much? You don’t see me doing that and this is my wedding.”
Seems like Luna and Blossom are getting along pretty well. It’s time like this I wish the Sims 2 had the same story progression as the Sims 3, I would have love to see where these two would go.-
With Sebastian added to the household I was able to give it a much-needed face lift.
I’m not going to give a tour but just be aware this is now big enough to hold a family instead of just two people.-
I sent Grace and Sebastian down to the local Mall to get a bite to eat, and also get them a couple of body points. Seeing as I no longer can do that on the home lot.
To put it simply nothing happened here worth taking a picture of. Except the fact the cashier got mugged while at work.
Facial Hair OTT: “Plumbob I knew I should have never left the house. Why did I agree to do this?!”-
Night time rolled around and Evelyn showed a heavy dislike to how well Grace’s life is going now.I do feel bad for her but things are about to look up for our resident vampire.
Bindi popped round to calm Evelyn down after she finished her shift up at the college. Knowing that she would have to take Bindi’s last name, Evelyn asks her to move in.
Bindi: “A chance to get a good night sleep without rowdy college kids waking me up to demanded food? Count me in!”-
When Bindi went to bed Evelyn wasted no time in getting back to her teasing.
Evelyn: “Did you just wet yourself? Oh my Plumbob, this is hilarious! Need to go back to potty training there Grace?”
Grace: “Shut up Evelyn!”-
Grace: *Sob* “This is so embarrassing! I can’t believe I just did that. Now she’s going to have more ammo against me.”
Luckily for Grace though, she has Sebastian there to make things better.
Sebastian: “Grace? What are you crying for?”
Grace: “Nothing…it’s just Evelyn. It doesn’t matter anyway. I’m going to take a shower, I stink.”
Sebastian: “I think you smell fine.”
Grace: “That’s because you’re a dork.”-
Grace: “Okay seriously I’ve had enough now. I stink and I’m close to starving to death.”
Grace: “Get lost!”-
Thursday thankfully brought a break in the fighting.
It turns out that Sebastian works as a Chief of Staff and he went off to work before I had a chance to stop him. He’ll be quitting that job as soon as he gets home don’t worry.
Unfortunately, that means Sebastian will be missing the wedding of his sister-in-law.-
It was a beautiful indoor wedding. The perfect solution to make sure the wedding happens at the same time as Grace’s did but also making sure Evelyn’s doesn’t burn up while saying her vows.
Seeing as Sebastian took Grace’s surname, Evelyn will be taking Bindi’s. At the end of this week, the two will move out to have their own household. Let's introduce Bindi shall we?
Star Sign: Aquarius
Turn Ons: Brown Hair & Witches
Turn Off: Unemployment
Here’s the proof that I got the timing right with the wedding. Grace popped into her second trimester just before Bindi and Evelyn cut the cake.
Grace: “I’m sure I felt the baby kick. Shame that the dress hides it.”
That can’t be healthy.-
Grace’s bladder though seems to be badly affected by the pregnancy though.
Blossom: “Oh gross. You better not do that at my wedding.”
Grace: “Keep talking like that and I won’t invite you around anymore.”-
Oh yeah, that’s really helpful there Sebastian. Your wife is heavily pregnant and you become sick while medicine is restricted.
Suddenly I’m getting flashbacks to the Sparrow flu epidemic.-
I sent him to bed as soon as he got home but as soon as I look away from him I find him outside hugging a random townie.
Sebastian: “I love you, man.”
Red head: “Uhh…help?”
He doesn’t even know the guy so I’m just going to put it down to a high fever and leave it at that.-
It seems like at this point Evelyn has had enough of life, or maybe the call of the mailbox is just that strong.
Evelyn: “ARG! It burns! I should really get back inside but I must get the mail.”
There are other Sims in this household. Get back inside before you fry!-
Night time rolled around and Sebastian decided he wanted a pet, or more specifically a kitten. A quick look at everyone proved that everyone would be happy with this so I went ahead and let him.
Officer: “Mr Palmer? I’m from the shelter and your new pet is waiting for you outside.”
Sebastian: “You couldn’t bring it inside? I mean they can’t climb the stairs.”
Officer: “Please don’t tell me how to do my job, sir. I’ve been doing this for a long time; trust me you start to get fed up of having children shoving you to the floor just to get the pet.”-
Sebastian would like to remind you that he is fact still sick and should be in bed and not outside picking up the kitten.
I had to get Grace to get the thing because Sebastian was too busy choking to death on the sidewalk.-
This little one is called Molly.
Molly: “They always say the butler did it but I bet it was the wife.”-
Friday brings the wonderful sight of Evelyn throwing up her breakfast. At least this is a sign that her Bindi was successful with their baby making.
Or maybe Sebastian makes a rubbish breakfast we’ll just have to wait and see.-
2 hours later she popped into her first trimester.
Evelyn: “At least I won’t have to change out of my dress.”
Grace (Background): “Uh oh.”-
Grace: “Sebastian! Sebastian, help me!”
Sebastian: “What a great book! I knew that Detective Manner would solve it, but who would have guessed it would have been the sister who killed him?”-
Sebastian: “One-second dear. I’ve got to put the book back, can’t have an untidy house after all.”
It’s a boy! Meet Gus Palmer, the new heir to the Palmer Household.-
Evelyn: “I can’t believe it, I’m an Aunt!”
Grace: “My hate for you will not go on to my son. I won’t stop you spending time with him, it won’t be fair.”
Evelyn: “Thank you, Grace.”
Wow. This is probably the first time the two of them have got on.-
So here is little Gus! He has his mother’s skin colour, which is skin three, and her brown hair. But he has Sebastian’s lovely dark blue eyes.
Knowing how good looking both his parents are, there’s no question this kid is going to be precious.-
To Grace’s joy, she ended up going into labour just before her carpool was set to arrive.
Look how happy she is to be going back to work. Knowledge Sim through and through this girl.
Grace: “I'm sure Seb will be fine with Gus for today and if not Evelyn will give him a hand.”-
Bindi had started becoming a night owl along with Evelyn so the two of them were both out cold. This left the still sick Sebastian to take care of Gus all on his own.
It didn’t take him long to realize that playing with him soon after feeding him wasn’t the brightest idea he had.
Sebastian: “Urgh. How can that smell so bad? I only gave you milk!”-
Friday comes to close and I just manage to catch Evelyn rubbing her baby bump in the corner of my eye. I always miss this when my Sims do it so I’m glad I caught it this time.
Evelyn: “Are you going to take after mommy, little one? I don’t care either way.”
Just to summarize because Evelyn is a vampire there is a 50/50 chance of her passing that down to her children.-
Saturday morning brings the ear piercing screams of an unhappy Gus. Both Grace and Sebastian are still sleeping upstairs so guess who’s looking after him?-
Bindi: “Now Gus that is not how you get someone’s attention. If you want something you must ask nicely, and don’t forget to say please and thank you.”
Evelyn: “Bindi, he’s only a day old. He can’t even crawl yet, let alone asking politely for a diaper change.”-
That was literally all that happened on Saturday. Evelyn also entered her final trimester while Bindi decided to try and work how to stop Gus from crying.
The last day of spring arrived with a Birthday Party! It’s time for little Gus to become the first toddler of Arborndale.
Sebastian: “Wow, all my friends are still in college. Isn’t that something to worry about?”
Grace: “Honey I don’t care who you’re friends are. What I do care about is the fact you’re not cheering as your son is about to have his first birthday.”-
Sebastian: “Woo! Yeah! Go Gus!”
Grace: “Make a big wish, honey. Ready? One, two, thr-”
Sebastian: “Hey does anyone here that?”-
It was this point my camera panned over to where Evelyn is sleeping. Or rather where she was sleeping.Evelyn: “I’m so glad I didn’t laugh at Grace for complaining about this. ARG! This is horrible!”
Evelyn: “Where the heck is everybody?!
Bindi (Out of the picture): “This room is too small Evelyn. They’re just outside listening to you scream and watch Gus blow out his candles.”-
It’s a little boy! This is Freddie Pavich and he didn’t inherit his mother’s vampirism.-
Evelyn: “Hold him for a second Bindi, I’m not done yet.”
Bindi: “Aww this little guy got my black hair.”
Sebastian: “Twins? We don’t have room for twins!”-
Another little boy! This one is called Lucas Pavich and he did inherit his mother’s vampirism.-
No time to get a good look at them though as I quickly jump back to the birthday just in time to watch Grace toss little Gus into toddlerhood.From what I can see from here he turned out to be adorable.
Now both pregnancies are over Evelyn wasted no time in making it clear that her hate for her sister is still going strong.
Evelyn: “I can’t believe you didn’t bother to help me! I was in there screaming and you were too busy with your bloody party!”Grace: “Get off me, Evelyn! It was Gus’s party; I had to keep him distracted! Do you know what you screaming would have done to him?!”
So here are the Pavich twins! They both having Bindi’s skin colour, Skin one, and her brown eyes but while Freddie has her black hair, Lucas got Evelyn’s brown hair.
Now as I mentioned earlier Lucas inherited Evelyn’s vampirism, there’s a 50/50 chance of that happening and I use a simple flip of the coin to decide who inherits the genes.
If you want more information go and have a read of my rules, I explained what I’ve planned with the Supernaturals over there.-
This little cutie here is Gus Palmer. The only thing I changed was his hair because neither Grace nor Sebastian had curls so I gave him straight hair too.
Isn’t he adorable?!
Gus: “Lof’ Molly! Molly my ki’iy!”
Molly: “That’s fine kid but don’t hug me too tight. You’ll break me.”Gus Palmer
Star Sign: Virgo
Grace ended up bring home another promotion.
As far as I’m aware Grace is the only one in Arborndale that has managed to get further than Level two. Congratulations!-
Sebastian was more than happy to give her congratulation for her hard work.
They also solved the dilemma I was having about letting them have another kid.
Those lullaby sounds were very relaxing.-
Sebastian: “AHHH!”Why does this always happen when I don’t want it to? First Kacper and now Sebastian
To no surprise the two of them started fighting as soon as Sebastian was taken.
For some reason neither likes to fight if Sebastian is in the area, I have yet to work out why.-
You know what? I didn’t want these households to have too many kids because I would have to end up playing them.
So with the sound of that beautiful lullaby once more I’ve decided that the Palmer household will have no more children after these two. Unless Grace ends up having another boy, then they’ll probably have one more together.
Sebastian, you are, in fact, a Knowledge Sim. Don’t try and act like this experience wasn’t a huge high for both you and Grace.-
I can already tell this pregnancy is going to be harder on Grace than Gus was. She had thrown up 6 times by the time I managed to catch her with the camera.
My poor baby.-
Sadly though it’s now Monday meaning that I must bring this rotation to a close. So sorry you two but you’re going to have to deal with morning sickness until I get back to you.
This is the end of the Spring Rotation in the Palmer Household! Next time we’ll be visiting the Silverheart Household so look forward to it.
I hope you all have a great Easter!
