Going for Broke – Chapter 3.5: Make Her Say…

This chapter’s focus is on Beau Broke.


Beau Broke has been bitten by the love bug.  This bug is none other than Sophie Miguel.

Beau:  (internally) Mmmhmm!  Dat ass!!

Sophie is probably the worst sim to fall for as she only has two nice points.  However, Beau believes he can be the one.

After bringing her home from school, he invites her in.  He tells her about Horatius Hummel‘s biopic and how Hummel’s life is reflected in his works.

Sophie tells Beau about her arrest for choking Mrs. CrumpleBottom.

Sophie:  She hit me with her purse, so I choked her.  Next thing I know, some cop’s grabbing my hands and cuffing me.

Sophie’s story continued over dinner.

Sophie:  She told the cops that I came for her unprovoked, but Lucky Shack’s security cameras caught the whole thing on film.  She saw me hugging on Centowski and went ballistic with that purse!

Beau loved that Sophie enjoyed dancing just as much as he did.  They danced together for hours.

Beau was attracted to Sophie’s feistiness.  He wanted her, and he put a plan in motion to get her.

He started working out every morning before school to lose that muffin top.

He lived off nothing but protein shakes for a month.

After he lost the weight, he spruced himself up.  And then…

Beau:  Look, baby.  I ain’t even gonna front. You know I want you.  You hear me knocking?

Sophie:  Ooo.  I’m hearing something.

Beau:  Then you need to let me in so we can do this.

Sophie:  That sweet swag is making me dig you like an old soul record.  Come on in, baby.

The deal is sealed with a kiss.

Beau:  Woo! Yeah!! I’m the man. I’m the man!! I’M THE MAN!!!

Beau’s sweet swag’s got Sophie’s nose wide open.

Now she can’t keep her hands off of him.

Akron Idalgo

A very mature and responsible high school student with excellent grades.  He is single.  He’s been enthralled with books since he first learned to read.  The library is his favorite place to hang out.  He has more interest in books than the opposite sex.  He has a few close friends.  He has a talent for memorizing entire books from front cover to back cover just by reading them once.

Kanady Peattie

Owner and sole employee of Peattie’s Used Books.  She is single, and lives in the residential space attached to the bookstore.  Has a strong belief in the power and beauty of words.  Keeps a black cat named Pages as a pet.  Lives next to a grocery store, but never has any food in her cabinets or refrigerator.

Colorful – Episode 1


It’s Saturday morning and Akron Idalgo is checking out the latest happenings in Colorful.  Something catches his eye.

Peattie’s Used Books is now open.” Akron says to himself.

Being an avid lover of literature, it would be hard for him to resist the opportunity to visit a new bookstore that suits the not-so-deep pockets of a student.

Peattie’s Used Books.  I’ll check it out.”

As soon as he enters the store, he sees a woman checking the shelves.

“Beautiful.”  Akron says to himself.  “Is she the owner?  An employee, maybe?”

“Hi!  Welcome to Peattie’s Used Books!  Can I help you find something?”

“Hello.  Do you have anything by Horatius Hummel?”

She was surprised.  “What?!  Oh my!  You know about Horatius Hummel?”

“Yeah!  He’s one of my favorite authors.”  Akron excitedly proclaimed.

“Really?  Have you read Boys of Our Legacy?”

“That was the first book I read by him.  I felt Hummel’s conveyance of loneliness and longing on a visceral level at the end.”

“You felt it, too?  I didn’t think there was anyone else out there that could feel it.”

“Yes.”  Akron took a deep breath, closed his eyes, and began to recite.  “His heart cracked, and one tear was shed as he resigned himself to his final fate.  There would be no return.”

When Akron opened his eyes, he looked right into her face.  Tears were falling.

Shocked and confused by her reaction, Akron wanted to panic.  “S-Sorry!  Did I misquote it?”

“Not at all.”  She gently responded.  “My name is Kanady Peattie.  What’s your name?”

“Umm…  A-Akron.  I-Idalgo.  Akron Idalgo.”

“Akron…” Kanady said as she stepped a little closer to him.  “Will you marry me?”

“Huh?”

The Schadenfreude Legacy 1.4

Read ISBI Challenge Rules.
Riskacy:  Having the founder and heirs marry (or breed with) the first adult Sim of the opposite (or same) gender that walks onto the lot.


NSFW:  Underwear!

There is a daily routine in the Schadenfreude home.

  1.  The Nanny insults and laughs at Marie throughout the day.

2.  Marie lies on the couch stewing in her own anger.

Marie:  (internally) I’m going to strangle that old crow one day.  Believe it!

3.  Makoto St. Julien comes by just to kick the trash can.

Then Hans comes home.  This time with a promotion!

He greets Armin.

He greets Marie.

And lastly, he gets a little afternoon pick-me-up.

Armin has aged up to a toddler, and none too soon, because…

A tuxedo, EAxis?  Really?!

Marie, I really don’t think it’s wise to be drinking in your condition.

Marie:  Shut up.  I need this.

It sucks for Hans being the only controllable sim on the lot.  There’s not enough simoleons to pay for a maid, so anytime there’s a mess, he’s the one to clean it up.

While Hans was cleaning up the mess Makoto St. Julien left, Marie was making a mess of her own.

The Schadenfreude house also has an evening routine.

  1.  Hans bathes Armin.

2.  Hans feeds Armin dinner.

3.  Hans works on studying skills for his next promotion.

~*~

OK.  Let’s go with “Turn in the Role Sheet”.

Dammit!

He looks pitiful.  I’m sorry, Hans.

Hans cried several times that day.

He cried before answering the phone…

…and he cried after he finished his dinner.

However, an affectionate hug from Marie made him feel better and he was able to function again.

He gave Armin a bath…

…read him a story, and then put him to bed.

Hans was finally able to bed down for the night as well.  Unfortunately, as soon as he closed his eyes…

Armin started screaming at the top of his lungs.  He screamed so loud that an extra mouth appeared under the one he already had.

Hans doesn’t look too thrilled about having his sleep interrupted.

Hans:  Congratulations on your engagement, Marie!

Marie:  Honey, are you running a fever?

No.  He’s just suffering from extreme sleep deprivation.

~*~

You’ve been completely uncontrolled ignored and still had a so-so week.  That’s pretty impressive.

Hans needs more charisma in order to get that next promotion.

Simoleons for a gardener is not in their budget, so Hans is also taking care of the flowers and shrubs.

While Hans was outside being a workhorse, Marie was inside playing a game until she jumped into her second trimester.

~*~

Didn’t we do this already?  What the hell?!  I’ll go with “Alter the Role Sheet” this time.

Whew!

Shouldn’t Samantha Ottomas be on maternity leave?

Hans:  Woo!  Yeah!!  I’m the man.  I’m the man!!  I’M THE MAN!!!

Hans eagerly talks to Samantha about his wife’s pregnancy.

Marie:  (internally) The knight captures the enemy piece.

Armin aged up to a child, and none too soon because…

Marie:  -eeeyouch uggh yeow-

Hans:  Why did you have to go into labor right there?  I was going to get another grilled cheese sandwich.

Welcome to Pleasantview, baby girl Ada Schadenfreude.  She has Hans’ eyes!  Yay!!

Hans is proud.

Marie:  Eww!  What is that?!  Get it away from me!!

Hans:  That is our oldest son, Armin.

Armin:  -sad-

I have concerns about the future of their relationship.
