Talking The Sims 2 Presents: Foster's Valley!

They're Back!!!

They are indeed, and just in time for lunch:



Burgers were on the menu today, courtesy of Frankie, who is rapidly turning into quite a cook. She gets a lot of practice, what with feeding this house three times every day. Not everyone showed up for lunch, however; Coco was in bed, exhausted after a morning trip to the mall, Bendy was full from a snack, and I have no idea where Wilt was. While the rest of the house ate, Bendy explored the depths of the toy box:



This Bendy is better behaved than the original version on the show, although he screams at me when I make him clean up after himself. He and Berry get along extremely well, much to the relief of the rest of the house. I created them as brother and sister because I didn't want them to have kids together when they become adults. Bendy's and Berry's kid... I shudder at the thought.

After lunch, Mr. Herriman began work on his autobiography:



Writing can bring in a big chunk of money for Sims, and Foster's Home is going to need it. Taxes are paid twice a week in Foster's Valley, and the taxes due on than enormous house are well over three times what any other family pays in any of my six neighborhoods. I almost choked on my tea when I saw the figure. Write well, Mr. Herriman, write well.

After lunch, Eduardo, feeling the need to get out and meet new people, called a cab and went to the mall, where he met someone we all know:



Eduardo knows her as Sofia Westlane, but to us she's Our Miss Fomalhaut. The two of them hit it off very nicely, parting with each other in their thought balloons. Sorry Ed, she's already got someone, and I've got other plans for you, big plans, and fortunately they do not include this woman:



You all remember Barbara Cravet, Cheese's mom. She was far less impressed with Eduardo than Fomalhaut was. Then again, Barbara lives with Cheese, and probably has her fill of Imaginary Friends within 20 minutes after getting out of bed. Small wonder that she spends her free time at the mall.

Back at Foster's, Bendy and Berry are in the TV room:



Berry has just awakened from a short nap, roused by Bendy screaming at the TV. He's watching one of the bloodier remakes of "Dracula". I don't speak Sim, but I could swear that he's calling the Count a "wuss". I worry about that kid.

And finally, here's a shot of my beloved Frankie:



The main reason I'm posting this shot is so you all can see that I'm trying to run this house as much like the original as I can; I don't have Frankie lounging around while everyone else caters to her every need. She cooks, does the cleaning (except when Mr. Herriman beats her to it), takes out the garbage, helps everyone with their homework, and is quite tired by the end of the day. She's quite a lady. The house is very demanding to play, due to it's size and the number of residents, and of course I have to make screencaps of every moment which slows things down, but believe me, it's worth every moment, because it's almost like being part of the show. What a way to send an afternoon!

Great new pics!

I will post mine, "Fantasy Fields", in a new thread - thought it's waaay less sophisticated than Cassini's, I hope you will like it!

Goo and Mac are still all over each other. Imagine my surprise when I had Frankie do the dishes and Goo SHOVES Mac on the table and starts making out with him.

As much as I support the pairing, I think they need to lay it off a little bit.

Bloo has fun laughing at them, and then Mac gets irritated and gives Bloo a noogie.

Frankie just stood there for the longest time, and then started screaming because Bloo was standing in front of the dishwasher.

And why don't I have screencaps for these???

Because my computer is idiotic and won't take them for some reason.

Help with screencaps: just take usual photos in The Sims 2, then open the EA GAMES ->Sims 2 ->Storytelling folder on your computer, where you'll find them, ready to upload!

What the well-dressed fangirl is wearing this season:



The shirt was created with MSPaint. More to come.
