As this week dawned, Irene and Hart were fighting like mad. Every conversation turned into a squabble. If left to their own devices, they would seek each other out and pick a fight.
Iris grew up into an ugly toddler.
Indiana, into an even uglier one.
I kept Irene and Hart busy with raising the kids. Teaching them to walk…
Teaching them how to say “steak dinner,” you know… the basics every toddler needs.
This particular fight was documented by the paparazzi (left, in overalls). Who let THAT guy in?
Ah, another hideous, randomly-generated dog.
OH GOD THE EYES.
He reminds me of the (in)famous Stains the Cupcake Dog.
Then! Out of nowhere! For no apparent reason! Irene got the “Oh My Ghost” opportunity. This is the one that gives you a chance to bring a dead person back to life. I started out small, with the tombstone of Irene’s mother-in-law Fern Alphabetti.
Now to try it on Bella Goth!
IT WORKED! Well, it half worked. She was added to my family as a playable ghost.
Now that she was back, I had to seal the deal. I started by trying the Young Again potion. It didn’t make her human, but it made her a younger ghost. At least this bought me some time.
Hart already had almost maxed out his cooking skill. So I made Bella learn the fishing skill, to catch the Deathfish, to make Ambrosia, to bring herself back to life. It only seemed fair.
Meanwhile, Dead Grandma Fern took care of the babies.
Don’t cry, little girl! The ghost will feed you!
Bella’s ghost and Irene don’t get along. Only makes sense, since Hart originally left Irene for Bella. And then he left Bella for Irene.
Ladies… I kind of think Hart is the one you should be hating on. But don’t let me stop you.
Speaking of Hart, his Lifetime Wish involves becoming a five-star Celebrity. This means we have to take any crazy-ass Opportunity that dishes out Celebrity points. In this Opportunity, he earned 250 Celebrity points for dancing at the disco for three hours.
Then he went skinny dipping in the disco’s hot tub.
(Wait… Hot tub? What kind of disco IS this?)
Man, what an ugly kid. Hilariously ugly!
It’s like she’s blaming her father for her looks.
Okay! We finally caught Deathfish, and had some Life Fruit left in family inventory, so the time came for Hart to make a dish of Ambrosia. Bella dug in…
And then she went all sparkly…
And then she was back!
OH GOD SHE’S HIDEOUS.
Hideous or not, as near as I can tell, I may be the first player to ever successfully revive Bella Goth in The Sims 3. Woop woop!
But I had to at least make her superficially represent the Bella Goth she once was.
That’s better, I guess.
Bella Goth being scared by a ghost. How ironic.
