Viran hadn’t quite got used to the idea of being a vampire.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-22-33-37

With both grandparents and father vampires and a working mother, Veles didn’t always get the attention he needed.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-29-50-89

Meanwhile his twin sister was clever enough to figure out how to get out of the cot.

Vlad seemed addicted to the telescope, perhaps in the hope of seeing those fabled aliens.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-13-12-48

He was in luck.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-19-13-10

He was gone for several hours, and apparently no-one noticed his absence. It was unfortunate that he was deposited back on earth during daylight hours.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-26-54-86

He felt ill soon afterwards, which puzzled Miranda. How can vampires get ill if they’re dead?

There will soon be a half alien, half vampire child amongst them…

Things started happening, finally.

Having vampire grandparents, a sleeping father, and a mother at work didn’t help the twins.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-05-28-09

However, despite being tired, Veles walked to the potty.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-07-14-30

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-07-53-13

Viran finally woke up and could attend to the toddlers.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-09-30-00

He put Veles to bed…

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-12-04-11

and let Verene out.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-12-37-65

Meanwhile, attraction between Vlad and Vrancea grew.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-34-06-48

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-55-13-44

Viran was oblivious.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-48-47-38

Vlad saw an opportunity to make Vrancea a vampire.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-56-07-52

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-56-31-58

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-56-57-62

Done.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-57-17-60

Viran and Miranda had no idea,

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-57-42-66

but Verene heard something, like a flapping…

and suddenly Vrancea was there.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-58-13-50

Now it was Viran’s turn…

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-59-58-91

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-07-29-21

But, Vrancea knew, not everyone could be a vampire, as the children needed attention. She called up the matchmaker who sold potions.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-02-39-40

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-02-54-18

The matchmaker sold her one vial. Vrancea had thought there was a store of vampricillin somewhere in the house but she hadn’t found it. Never mind. Here goes, she thought.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-03-35-15

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-03-50-88

I think she looks better.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-04-09-10

Now she could look after the kids…

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-09-46-69

and was quite attracted to Viran’s new look.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-12-25-07

When I last updated, I hadn’t realised that the game hadn’t saved before it crashed! So I had to go through the birth again. I took the opportunity to rename the twins to Veles and Verene.

Talking of makeovers, Viran’s hair looks different now.

snapshot_75eea316_e5d03c69

He’s a good dad.

snapshot_75eea316_c5d03c5f

The twins quickly grew to toddlers.

snapshot_75eea316_c5d03de9

snapshot_75eea316_e5d03ebe

They played together,

snapshot_75eea316_25d041be

and get on well (although I’m not sure that Veles is enjoying the hug quite so much).

snapshot_75eea316_45d0425b

Their parents taught them to walk.  They’re only halfway through their toddlerhood and they can walk and talk and, I think, are also potty-trained.

snapshot_75eea316_a5d044c4

snapshot_75eea316_65d044d6

Over in Bluewater, Viran’s aunt, Demona, died at the age of 77. She had been a captain hero.

snapshot_826ce296_e5c4b026

[My game has been crashing fairly frequently. I think it’s cc. I’ve been trying to figure out what’s doing it but it’s very time-consuming, taking my time away from actually playing.]

[PS: I really hate the new blog layout when writing (with the menu on the right-hand side) and when I write a post it doesn’t scroll down so my text disappears at the bottom! I have to physically stop and scroll up to see it. Really fucking annoying. Thanks WordPress.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fucking fix it! I also hate the new reader display.]

Vrancea soon got pregnant.

snapshot_75eea316_05b4d853

Viran is in the science career but Vrancea hasn’t found work yet.  She wanted a baby. She didn’t expect twins however.  It makes sense. Her father-in-law was a twin.

Viran was at work when Vrancea went into labour.

snapshot_75eea316_a5b4d888

Luckily it was at night so Miranda could help out.

snapshot_75eea316_85b4d8bc

The first baby – a boy, Vacul.

snapshot_75eea316_25b4d8d4.jpg

The second – a girl, Savika.

Miranda introduced her granddaughter to the great outdoors.

snapshot_75eea316_05b4e219

Miranda and Vlad complained about the twins smelling, even lecturing them (but did nothing about it).

snapshot_75eea316_45b4db8f

Yes, Vrancea found herself quite attracted to her father-in-law, especially after she saw his naked body…

vlad

However, at dawn, he and his wife always retreated before the sun got too much.

Perhaps it was just as well that Vrancea didn’t get a lot of time alone with him.

Viran’s brother, Kiran, was at university and noticed an interesting dark-haired student in his dorm.

kirana

Her name was Kaia and it didn’t take Kiran long to get to know her better.

kiranfl

He worked fast and quickly proposed before someone else did (she attracted a lot of attention).

kiranen

They graduated about the same time and Kiran decided to move to Bluewater, away from his vampire family.  At first they moved into an abandoned castle on the hill above the poorhouse, but the castle had some serious routing issues and was demolished. Instead, they chose a newly-built modern house overlooking the sea.

kiranh

kiranh2

Kiran found he had to fence off the driveway entrance to the side door to prevent visitors going there instead of the front door.  The interior also had to be redecorated, especially the floor which they hated.

They decided to marry privately. Kiran didn’t want an evening wedding in order to invite his parents and really didn’t want any fuss.  Thankfully, Kaia also didn’t want a big wedding. She just wanted to get on with life and find work.

kiranw

Viran and his fiancée returned to Veronaville.

snapshot_75eea316_2582c5ba

Vrancea was introduced to her mother-in-law-to-be first of all.

snapshot_75eea316_0582b857

Then, when she was outside, she didn’t notice as a bat approached.

snapshot_75eea316_8582ba6d

Turns out it was her father-in-law-to-be.

snapshot_75eea316_c582bad3

There was a dangerous attraction there.

snapshot_75eea316_a582bae0

However, they were being watched.

snapshot_75eea316_0582bbc4

Yes, Vrancea definitely found Vlad attractive.

snapshot_75eea316_0582bb50

Miranda would have to keep an eye on her new daughter-in-law.

snapshot_75eea316_c582b905

Viran quickly got a job in the scientist career. Vrancea welcomed him home.

snapshot_75eea316_c582ca40

Viran’s uncle came home from work with him one day, but was soon sent on his way.

snapshot_75eea316_a582ca1c

The wedding was set for late afternoon.  Several guests were invited,

snapshot_75eea316_4582be86

including Sebastien, the rock god.  He gets attention wherever he goes.

snapshot_75eea316_8582bf43

The ceremony:

snapshot_75eea316_a582be51

snapshot_75eea316_8582be33

snapshot_75eea316_6582bebd

Viran chatted to his bro, Kiran.

snapshot_75eea316_6582c0cd

Aunt Demona shared a table with the newly-weds.

snapshot_75eea316_8582bfad

Next to her is her son, Vince, who we’ve seen before.

Viran and his new bride sneaked some time alone before the reception was over.

snapshot_75eea316_2582c05a

Miranda managed to get to the wedding reception,

snapshot_75eea316_4582c1b0

and chatted to the bride before they headed off to their honeymoon.

snapshot_75eea316_a582c242

It seems Miranda’s sister-in-law was there, contemplating the change that vampirism had had on her.  She felt a little envious of her looking so young and beautiful but would not have wanted to become a vampire to do so.

snapshot_75eea316_e582c2a7

Vrancea discovered what an empty house it could be during the day with Viran at work. She, herself, had not yet found a job.

snapshot_75eea316_e582c873

At least that’s what I think it was when Vlad brought Arturo Perez back from several years being dead.  Arturo was Chantal’s first husband many years ago.

snapshot_75eea316_a576b3e7

The zombie Arturo wasn’t even used as a servant, but just locked up for Vlad’s amusement.

snapshot_75eea316_8576b5b4

However, the hungry Arturo started a fire when trying to barbecue some food in his prison.

snapshot_75eea316_c576b9ae

His zombie life was short.  Zombies weren’t much fun after all, thought Vlad.

His son, Viran, was at university enjoying life.

snapshot_37a1ba20_0524c15a

He met the beautiful Vrancea Romani.

snapshot_37a1ba20_6524c150

snapshot_37a1ba20_6524c1fe

He fell in love.

snapshot_37a1ba20_0524c23d

It wasn’t long before he proposed.

snapshot_37a1ba20_e524c3a2

Viran soon graduated in science, wanting to be a mad scientist like his father.

snapshot_37a1ba20_c57fe99a

His parents came to his graduation, even though it was during the day.

snapshot_37a1ba20_457fe9ca

snapshot_37a1ba20_857fe9e4

But they didn’t stay long for obvious reasons.

snapshot_37a1ba20_a57fe9f9

snapshot_37a1ba20_057fea0d

Meanwhile, one of the invited party, Fernando Perez, mourned the zombification and additional death of his distant relative.

snapshot_37a1ba20_857fea53

Vrancea also graduated and moved back to Veronaville with Viran.

snapshot_37a1ba20_257fe9a8

Miranda was getting closer to becoming an elder.  Vlad couldn’t bear the thought of seeing her get old.  So he used his powers to hypnotise her…

snapshot_75eea316_e4e6a9be

before biting her,

snapshot_75eea316_84e6a9c6

so she transforms into a vampire.

snapshot_75eea316_e4e6a9f4

snapshot_75eea316_e4e6aa10

Once the spell had broken, Miranda realised what Vlad had done.

snapshot_75eea316_c4e6aac6

She worked off her anger then confronted him,

snapshot_75eea316_64e6ac9d

for now she had to give up being mayor.  Taylor McCullogh (married to one of the Arends clan) took over as mayor.  Vlad tried to let her see the good side – that she’d live to see her grandchildren and perhaps great-grandchildren.

Viran, meanwhile, was about to head off for university.

snapshot_75eea316_04e6a808

Once he left, it was going to be a lonely life for Kiran – alone every day while his vampire parents slept.

snapshot_75eea316_e4e6ae3d.jpg

Vlad was still trying to get his wife to become a vampire, so he could continue living with her indefinitely instead of her getting old and dying.

moretime

“We could spend so much time together” he argued.

“But then I would have to give up my job.  I’ve only just become mayor and there is so much to do!”

argue2

“You don’t need a job!  We are wealthy!”

argue

He didn’t understand, that she actually enjoyed working, and meeting people.  She was saddened.  Each morning he disappeared into his secret light-protected room.

secretroom

It was a lonely life for her during the day.

ponder

Kiran noticed that his father had no reflection in the mirror.

invisible

It looked weird when his parents finally made up, his mother kissing an invisible person, it seemed.

inviskiss

Kiran grew to a teenager.

Kiran

Viran, meanwhile, was abducted by aliens.

abduct2

Luckily he was only a teen, so no alien baby for him.

abduct

And oops, I’ve forgotten to take note of what’s  happening with the DeMarrs – not much, from memory.

Miranda got promoted to mayor.

snapshot_75eea316_64830471

With her and Siobhan Mountebank as city planner, they plan on making a few changes.  Already a town hall has been built and some houses made cheaper for graduates.  There are plans to add a restaurant and park to Bluewater village and monitor the size of the cemeteries with plans to build another one soon.

On a more personal note, Miranda still prays that Vlad will want to cure himself of vampirism.

snapshot_75eea316_048301eb

Little did she know that Vlad was watching.  He pretended to be washing windows when she finished.

snapshot_75eea316_24830200

But no, Vlad wants to be around to watch grandchildren grow up.

Viran will soon be going to university, but there’s some time to go yet before grandchildren are on the scene.
