Poor Quinn! She’s gained weight again, and she can’t Woo Hoo with anyone, and when she goes to visit the stylist, he recommends… this.
After changing back into her regular clothes, she hit on the stylist. He seemed receptive.
Back at home, Benny whips out his sleeping bag and falls asleep on the living room floor.
Quinn follows the stylist home. He seems to lose interest in her, so I change her into her Sexytime Dress and have her hit on his roommates.
They make out on the bed, but once again, Woo Hoo is not an option.
If I click on the shower the “Woo Hoo With…” option is grayed out, with the error message “You need a potential lover on the lot.”
I decided to send her to France. Maybe she’ll have better luck in a different country. Once she arrives, I have her hit on literally the first man she sees: Francois Lambert, the Special Merchant.
It goes well! (Note that I have changed her into the Sexytime Dress again.)
She invites him back to the hostel. Just as they are starting to get busy, the paparazzi show up.
You can’t dismiss the paparazzi, or (it turns out) lock them out of your room if you’re staying at the hostel.
In lieu of anything more useful, I have Quinn attack!
Quinn wins the fight! The tabloid photographer is banished!
And FINALLY, she is able to properly celebrate!
I used “Try For Baby,” and heard the little lullaby chime that means it worked. Hooray!
When Quinn returns home, we discover that Benny is now listed as her “Ex-Husband.” I didn’t realize Sims could divorce themselves when you were away on a trip!
That night, they sleep in separate beds.
The next morning, they silently eat at opposite ends of the table.
I keep my hands off the keyboard and let them sort it out for themselves. They keep making things worse. They seem to rehash the same conversation over and over again: he flirts with her (and she gets angry), then she offers to train him on the exercise equipment (and he gets angry).
It’s twins! I decide to go alphabetically again, and name them Alex and Brock.
Next, I invite their father for a visit all the way from France.
Turns out Quinn and Francois can still Woo Hoo together, even on her home lot now!
But the next day, there’s trouble. The babies are broken, that’s the only way I can explain it. I can’t select them, nor can I have an adult interact with them, and their thumbnails are just a blank green background. I try resetsim, I try the cheat for aging them up, I try running the game without custom content, but nothing works.
Eventually I had to give up. I moved the babies and Benny out of the house, leaving Quinn there alone. That afternoon I get a pop-up notice that Quinn is pregnant. (???) But then I guess she loses the baby, because she keeps going to work as usual.
And every day she comes home to a house that’s as beautiful as it is empty.
