Chapter 13: Humping the Hermit

I’m sorry for the title. I just had to go with the alliteration…

Rudolph aged up, looking effortlessly cool in shades and bunny slippers.

Holly also became a child.

Rudolph stared at Holly while she slept in a totally-not-creepy way.

Anika and Sheena monkeying around. They are cute… As kids, anyway!

Here is Vlad sharing vampire knowledge with Rudolph. If a sim who is already advanced in the vampire lore skill performs the social ‘share vampire knowledge’ or ‘teach about ancient lore’ (or something like that) with another sim only three times, that sim, will achieve level 4 vampire lore skill. So in only three social interactions you can get a child the skill level required for getting an A at school as a child AND as a teen!

Holly and Rudolph worked on school projects for extra credit.

Theodore became a toddler. I think he’s going to get Ramona’s nose but other than that he doesn’t look as bad as I was anticipating. It’s a strange day when a child gets lucky for taking after Vlad…

Anika became a teen.

And Sheena became a teen.

Study club!

Anika and Sheena worked on school projects.

Rudolph aged up into a teen wearing some teeny tiny shorts.

Holly also aged up into a teenager.

Sheena became a YA.

And Anika became a YA. Here’s her normal form:

And her dark form:

Although Sheena and Anika didn’t inherit their alien mother’s blue skin colour in their normal form, it’s nice that they got it in their dark forms. Still, I would have preferred them to have been blue in their normal forms. Apart from the difference in their hair colour, Sheena and Anika are identical. They just have different hair colours because the game tried to give them Vlad’s grey hair and, since kids can’t have grey hair, ended up giving them random hair colours.

With Sheena and Anika gone, Vlad got baby-making with Summer Holiday.

Holly made fun of Rudolph. I’m not sure what she was making fun of exactly, since with Rudolph there’s so much to choose from.

Theodore became accustomed to the local cuisine of the dungeon. Seriously, why does half of the popcorn Vlad make turn out burnt?

Holly dancing.

Argh! Get back in the dungeon where you belong! For some reason watching the toddlers climb up the dungeon stairs  reminds me of golum. Dandre looks like he is set on revenge.

After all his child abuse parenting, I decided that Vlad deserved to wind down with a massage.

Rudolph got his A and became a YA. Rudolph’s normal form:

Holly also became a YA. Here’s her normal form:

And her dark form:

I had the idea that Vlad should try to do the outdoor enthusiast aspiration, which I’ve never had a sim complete before. I soon gave up on this plan once I realised how much time it required one to spend in Granite Falls. But, this did lead to the family having a one day vacation in Granite Falls. Above is the toddler’s temporary prison.

Vlad travelled through the secret cave thing in the national park…

… And came face to face with this lady called Kiana. At first I thought she couldn’t be the hermit as she was too pretty, but since nobody else was around I guess she must be.

Kiana was pretty happy to see Vlad. I guess she probably hasn’t seen another living soul in quite some time, so she doesn’t realise quite how unattractive he is.

Vlad took advantage of the situation.

And they ended up woohooing.

After which, Vlad threw up in Kiana’s toilet (he was suffering from morning sickness).

Back at home, Diamond and Dandre wondered if they’d dreamed about a place beyond the dungeon’s stony walls.

Theodore got to experience food other than popcorn for the first time. Unfortunately for him, that food was roasted beetles (courtesy of the outdoor explorer aspiration which Vlad was working on at the time).

Dandre became a child. Apparently he didn’t realise that that means he no longer needs to eat popcorn.

And Diamond became a child, too.

Somehow Vlad ended up outside the dungeon and I had to teleport him back inside.

Dandre worked on a project while Diamond did her homework.

Vlad gave birth to twin girls: Emilie and Madalyn

Then, Vlad and Siobhan tried for a baby.

Vlad, you should be careful what you wish for since you might just get it. You’ll be trying for more babies than you know…

Ken came over and chatted with Diamond.

Vlad: I know I was a negligent absent father, but we definitely have met and you know it too! Give me more cheek like that and I’ll ground you in the dungeon for all eternity…
