Olivia & Remus Windling Get Abducted
So my second generation, second bloodline heir Venus and her husband Gawain now had four children: Katharina, Belarius, Olivia, and Remus. Also living with them were Venus' two brothers Mercury and Gemini. Here is a family portrait of the family as it now stands. I know, it's far away, sims aren't looking at the camera and a plumbob is in the picture, trust me, I get better at it!
"Third Generation, Second Bloodline: The Orphans as Children"
Here's the aftermath of the picture where everyone rushes out to continue working on earning me those points!
"In other words, more skillbuilding."
Soon after that picture was taken Katharina became a teenager. I rolled Knowledge.
"Which means that now I want to skillbuild!"
The next night Belarius also became a teenager and also rolled Knowledge.
"Which means lots of time spent doing this! Whee!"
Gawain of course was still up to his old tricks. He still hated putting on clothes and so spent a lot of his time shocking his children, wife and in-laws.
"Jeepers, Dad, can't you see I'm trying to study?"
Next up was Olivia who became a teen and also rolled Knowledge. I'll own up here and now that I usually re-roll my Sims aspirations in college and they could have rolled Knowledge then instead of now as teens, but I didn't make a note of it so all I have is the aspiration they ended up having as adults. The only Sim that I know for sure was a Knowledge Sim as a teen was Katharina I do no think Olivia was a Knowledge Sim as a teen though, in fact I'm pretty sure she was Popularity simply because I almost always get my Popularity Sims cell phones.
"It's totally easier to make friends this way without your parents complaining that you always tie up the phone."
Remus also ended up a Knowledge Sim. I think I would have remembered four Knowledge Sims so I'm pretty sure Katharina was initially and Belarius, Olivia and Remus became Knowledge later. I really need to start making notes of this stuff.
"Great. More skillbuilding."
Because the four kids weren't born into the bloodline I couldn't have them all earn their scholarships before they became teens. So through the first bit of their teenhood they were still working with an adult on a skill machine, poor things.
"The incredible skilling duo!"
One of the teens must have had a want to become friends with the person they brought home from school because Harmonia was hanging around the lot. Also, the friendship must have gotten off to a rocky start because she would end every interaction by glaring at them fiercely. The last time she did it the timing was perfect.
"You don't mess with an old school Windling!"
The ghosts were actually starting to become a bit of a problem.
The teens were being run ragged on their skill schedule and the elder had a weak bladder so there were a lot of puddles dotted all about the lot by the end a night.
In amongst the chaos Belarius' aspiration slipped into the green. Whoops.
"Whoa! Sparks not good..."
It was getting to the point that even my Knowledge Sims weren't getting aspiration boosts from ghost sightings anymore.
"Oh my goodness, heart, stay in there."
And, as if stuff wasn't crazy enough, that night I got an abduction. This displeased most everyone, save for Katharina who was jealous.
"Why not me?"
The abductee was Olivia who, at the time, was not pleased.
"My friends are so not going to believe this..."
Not long after that the ghosts got in their first hit. Poor Remus got scared just as he was reaching for a plate of porkchops to sate his hunger.
"The pain... the agony!"
His father, Gawain was there to plead for his life.
"Please! The check is in the mail, I swear!"
The Grim Reaper offered him a deal. If he could pick the right hand with the glowing ball in it he would win his son's life.
He picked the right one.
"Who's the man?"
And, Remus was brought back to life.
"I've got not strings to hold me down."
The night after that harrowing experience I had another abduction.
"This is so unfair!"
It was Remus! I was amazed, I mean what are the chances of having two abductions back to back like that? Madness. Plus he now has both been abducted and saved from death, and he wasn't even a Knowledge Sim at the time. Katharina was limping along with only one Want slot by that point as she wanted to Go To College, Be Abducted and Be Saved From Death all at the same time, aparently she was wildly jealous of her brother Remus.
"My friends are so not going to believe this..."
Points Earned: One point from Katharina and Belarius earning half a point in scholarships. Two points from Olivia and Remus earning a full point in scholarships. One point for Katharina's impossible want to Max All Skills.

Wow Bitsy do you really have 227 points? When my legacy exploded on me, I only had 59 by Generation 4. You are amazing.

I have 227 at the point I am now, which is playing the second bloodline's fifth generation. The only way I have that many points is because of the two bloodlines though, I'd probably be closer to your points if I was only playing one. That's a pretty amazing score!

Thanks Bitsy. Hearing that from you really made me feel special because I had been using your legacy as my inspiration.
