Range Valley – Round 12 – Kearney

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 7,800.


Zachary and Linnea Kearney.


The Kearneys had a very quiet round. Zachary pottered about learning new things, and wondering what idiot would put a bookcase against a wall.


Linnea spoke on the phone with one of her children everyday. In the middle of the week, she invited them over for dinner.


Levi brought his new wife, Kitty, and Ruby brought her bump. Linnea is thrilled at the idea of grandchildren, and has been a great deal of support for Ruby, who is facing a future as a single mother.


“I’m thinking Howard for a boy, and Margot for a girl!”

“Oh. Erm. Lovely.”


“Babe, let’s go home. Your mum just cornered me and begged me to pick a nicer name for our kid than your sister is considering. She’s offering me the full inheritance.”

“Loud and clear, let’s go.”


Later in the week, Maya drops by. She was always Zachary’s favourite, and I think he misses her a lot.


And of course, Cara makes her visit. She has already tried to rob these two, but whatever. Enjoy your face through a wall.


The couple end the round much as they started it. But there’s nothing wrong with that.

Range Valley – Round 12 – Zeelan

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 7,800.


Pearl, Karsten, Mina, Sage, Violet, Garland, Kestrel, Starling, Coral and Juniper.


We return to this old dude!

“It’s me, Karsten!”

What happened to all your hair?

“I decided to go for something new!”


And life’s tragedies just keep coming. Mina is demoted after a poor chance card at work.


Followed by Karsten. Man, I suck at chance cards. :/


In the hopes of cheering everybody up, we have a birthday! Kestrel and Garland are aging into teens!


Garland first! He is pretty cute. I love the light hair/dark eyes combo. He is a knowledge sim.


He is then joined by Kestrel, who heads down the Romance path.


There’s always a crowd at the Zeelan house. Violet brings home their cousin, Stellan. Stellan’s father, Eli, and Violet’s mother, Mina, are brother and sister.


But Violet is much more interested in Nico Ramirez. Truth be told, they make a cute couple.


But Violet’s not the only one meeting the neighbours. Kestrel makes a move on Mercy Parrish, and Mercy seems to fall for it.


In fact, Mercy falls for it hard enough to bring us a piano!


Karsten gets promoted again! His career was never really his focus anyway. He wanted a ton of kids, and gets far more joy out of spending time with his family.


The whole family is looking a little more positive, as Mina brings home a promotion as well!


Just need to find Juniper, and we can have the triplet’s birthday!


Coral is stunning! Mina and Karsten made a bunch of cute kids! Coral is a family sim, so she wants a family just as big as the one she grew up in. I’m still pretty scarred from two 10 kid families in close succession, so she can keep dreaming.


Juniper is a knowledge sim, but a very outgoing one, so she bucks the steotype of the loner nerd, somewhat.


And Starling is A. Fortune, and B. Hella cute.


And I’m not the only one who things Starling is hella cute. Beatrix Parmeley does, too.

“Hey, want to get together and talk about how much it sucks to be a multiple in a ten child family?”

“Oddly specific, but not going to lie, that’s my demographic.”


It’s Sunday, and everybody is ill. Luckily, Coral is a family sim, and whips up a batch of Grandma’s Comfort Soup.


And I get this lovely picture of Violet embarrassing herself in front of their guests.


The Zeelan family is shrinking. Violet is about to leave for university, too.

Range Valley – Round 12 – Parmeley

Welcome to Range Valley, population 7,800.


Clementine, Anneliese, Rosalie, Lilias, Blaise, Riordan, Finley, Beatrix, Evangeline, Milo, Toby. Not pictured is Magdalena.


We kick off the Parmeley’s week with Blaise making a move on a somewhat interested Elodie Dallas. It won’t last – Blaise either has to go to uni, or age up this week.


But the honour of the first birthday goes to little Magdalena.


She’s pretty cute, but she might need to grow into those eyes a bit. The Parmeley clan is a bit hit and miss for cuteness. Finley is adorable. Clementine, not so much.


Speaking of Clementine, Aidan here obviously finds her cute enough.


Enough to grant her a first kiss, anyway.


Finley continues to be a massive help with Magdalena, teaching her how to walk.


Riordan wants to get a job! He goes into Law, as it’s the first thing to pop up in his search, and he doesn’t care what he does, just that he does something.


The household is about to get a little more hormonal. It’s the quadruplets’ birthday!


Beatrix is a family sim!


Evangeline is a knowledge sim.


Milo is obviously popularity.


And Toby completes the set with fortune. Also, Toby is cute as, and is my favourite of the four.


With a house so crowded by teenagers, sometimes the best place to teach is a bathroom. So Lilias gets Magdalena to pick up her last few words before her birthday.


So far, Magdalena looks just like older sister, Beatrix. But their personalities are different, so there’s no firstborn effect. I guess there are only so many genetic combos you can spread over 10 children?


The boys of the household hang out together one last time. Blaise will be heading to university with Anneliese.


Interestingly, Anneliese actually rolled the want to go to uni, despite being a Romance sim. I guess she wants the parties and the lack of parental supervision? Blaise is a knowledge sim, so he obviously wants to go.


Clementine rolls the want to get a job, and finds one in Law Enforcement. It’s a little extra cash to keep her going, anyway.


It’s a big day in the Parmeley household. The last of the triplets is aging up today, as is Rosalie!


Riordan ages up the last day of the round.


He cleans up pretty cute, and heads out to his own place. He is too used to being crowded.


We leave behind a slightly smaller Parmeley family.

Range Valley – Round 12 – L. Akagi

Welcome to Range Valley, population 7,800.


Leon, Kendra, Veronika, Axel and Rosemary.


The Akagi-Rasmussen family like to eat dinner together, and stare at Leon in disbelief. It’s a hobby.


Rosemary is overweight and pregnant, which makes her look pretty enormous. She also likes to raid the fridge. I love Rosemary.


Teenagers are so fickle. Veronika quickly rejects Liam McKinley, on the basis that he is just way too young for hersnapshot_68c2a28c_2a10eef8.jpg

But then turns around and flirts with him on her own. I guess she likes to make the moves?


Axel and Rosemary are expecting. And we’re due any hour now.


A boy! Little Leif is only a quarter alien, but is rocking the green skin!


Rosemary heads back to work and is promptly demoted after a bad chance card. Ouch.


Leif’s birthday rolls round, and I am crossing my fingers that Rosemary and Axel might want another baby.


He’s super cute, and definitely takes after his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.


Oh no! At least Leon got to meet his grandson. He is the first born in game sim to die in Range Valley. Before his older sister, Liora.


Leon Akagi was the second child to be born in Range Valley. Son of Dean Lee, and an unknown alien. He married his high school sweetheart, Kendra Akagi, and had four children with her, Axel, Soren, Sunniva and Veronika. He also leaves behind three grandchildren, Leo Akagi, Mae Dallas and Leif Rasmussen.


Luckily for Axel, it doesn’t affect his work performance too much, and he is promoted to Celebrity Chef.


Kendra also brings her other son, Soren, home from work. They are both dancers.


And the next day, Rosemary is promoted back up after her bad chance card.


Axel teaches Leif to talk. Still no want for a little brother or sister for him, but there’s time.


And Rosemary teaches him to walk, just in time for his birthday.


He definitely has the Lee nose, which I think is super cute!


We leave the Rasmussen family there.

Range Valley – Round 12 – Kane

Welcome to Range Valley, population 7,800.


Maisie, Juliet, Eli and Stellan.


The Kanes have a mostly ideal life. Eli and Maisie have both got wants about having another baby, but they are struggling.


And their oldest, Stellan, is developing quite the friendship with Karima Qadir. It’ll only be friendship, though, as Karima is dating Finley Parmeley.


Eli teaches little Juliet how to walk, and hopes that they won’t have to put the nursery things into storage for long.


Juliet after her birthday. She’s much cuter in real life, I just took a very unflattering picture, because I suck.


Unfortunately, the two get too old to add a third child to their family. Still, they’re pretty happy with what they already have.


Eli brings Jacob Dallas home from work. Jacob Dallas has had no such trouble with fathering kids. He’s only a week into adulthood, and has two by two women. Possibly a third, depending on who the father of Katrien’s child is.


Eli teaches Juliet to study while Stellan paints. Stellan is a fortune sim, and is constantly wanting to earn money, and buy nicer stuff.


It’s time!


Eli makes a handsome old man.


And Maisie is stunning!


Stellan still has a thing for Anneliese Parmeley. Not sure if he knows that he’s just one face in a crowd.


Honestly, I think he’d be more suited to a girl like Karima, but teenaged boys.


And the family ends their round there. Also, proof that Juliet is really cute.

Range Valley – Round 12 – McAuley

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 7,650.


Rebecka, Emmy and Eve.


Eve kicks off the round making a new friend! Persis Lee!


And Rebecka continues to see Kyoshi, offering him comfort after the birth of Star-Baby, Hana.


Shameful, really.


Emmy returns hom from work, and Rebecka just looks annoyed at being caught, more than anything else.


Emmy is furious. Kyoshi wanders off, hoping that Emmy hasn’t gotten too good a look at him. She just about knows Daisy Gaither, Kyoshi’s live-in girlfriend and mother of one of his daughters.


“It’s all ending in tears, right?”



Rebecka goes on the offensive, picking a fight with Emmy over her long hours, unrealistic goals for their future, and so on.


And Emmy calls it all off.

“Here’s a realistic goal for you. We’re done. You do what you want, Rebecka.”


Rebecka is horrified. Sick to her stomach, even. Unfortunately, Range Valley laws being as they are, the two women are going to be stuck in the same house for the week. Emmy at least moves her things into the spare room.


“I’m sorry it didn’t work out, Evey.”

“It’s fine. But you’ll still talk to me, right?”

“Of course.”

Emmy actually has a better relationship with Eve than Rebecka does.


Eve ages up the next day, into a pretty young woman. She’s a fortune sim.


Emmy might be stuck living with her ex, but she moves on quickly to Cora Grey.


Very quickly.


Timing is a bitch, isn’t it? Rebecka discovers she is pregnant. I’m sure Kyoshi will be thrilled with the third addition to his brood.


Rebecka breaks the news to Emmy. And Emmy finds that she doesn’t really care. Or rather, she doesn’t feel hurt. She feels inspired.


Emmy and Cora fall in love, and Cora moves in.


Cora is another family sim, like Emmy.


Eve channels her feelings into music. She isn’t too thrilled with the direction her homelife is taking, and she isn’t too happy about a new sibling, at her mother’s age.


The new sibling who is on the way now!


It’s a girl! Clair McAuley is Rebecka’s second, and Kyoshi’s third daughter.


And Emmy proposes. Cora is much more receptive than Rebecka was, and accepts happily. No negative memory here.


Eve is more okay with Clair now that the baby is actually here. But with such a big age gap between the sisters, I don’t know how close they’ll be.


Whoops! It looks like I’ve downloaded some kind of pregnancy for all hack. Emmy and Cora will be fine with this, though.


In fact, as soon as Emmy tells Cora, the two marry, and Emmy takes Cora’s surname.


It’s Clair’s birthday! Rebecka is rocking her work outfit. Rebecka has carried on working. Cora and Rebecka actually get on really well, and Cora watches Clair on work nights.


Still feels a bit early to tell who Clair looks like. But she’s cute!


And then Verity is born! Another little girl, and much like Aubrey Landry, Verity takes after just one of her parents.


Eve begins researching options to leave the house. Two babies is a bit much, and she can feel the weird atmosphere between her mother and Emmy.


Despite this, Eve still gets a genie lamp!


And Verity gets a birthday.


Verity is adorable! Looks very much like Cora, I think.


With that, the Grey family moves out. They have reached the end of the week, and the house isn’t right for two.


Leaving the McAuley family to have the house to themselves again.

Range Valley – Round 12 – Gaither

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 7,650.


Liora and Ethan Gaither are settling into their old age, and empty nest. And loving every minute.


Liora has become a frequent best seller, writing raunchy romance novels that sell beautifully.


And Ethan has become a little more family minded in his old age. He prefers spending tiem with his kids now that they’re adults.


Daisy and Ridley are happy to come home frequently, too. Daisy leaves her girls with Kyoshi (Liora hates him), and Ridley leaves the drama of Voorhees House.


Ethan meets recent graduate, Opal Zeelan. She too, is a romance sim, and they have three bolts.


Ethan and Liora have that kind of relationship where Liora can meet his girlfriend, in the bathroom, and fulfill a want from it.


Ethan gets to know Opal, but at the end of the day, sends her home.


Liora is his soulmate, even though romance sims don’t really do that.


They end the week still happily living their twilight years.
