“How do I look?” I asked nervously.

“I can’t see, move.” Salem said.

“Come on Salem, I’m pretty much proposing to my future wife, in a sense. Help me out a little! Is the tie too much?”

a1 (2)

“You’d look like a clown even without the tie, so no, not too much.” She said.

a1 (3)

“Oh you look fine, little dude.” Barry chimed in. “All you need now is some flowers!” He said, jokingly.

a1 (4)

“Way ahead of you, Uncle Barry.” I said. “I just have to pick those up on the way to the graveyard.”

a1 (5)

“Huh. I don’t believe it.” Barry said, with a surprised expression. “Okay, I give up, you win.” He laughed.

a1 (6)

The dogs started barking, signaling that my aunts just got home from work.

Salem stood up angrily “MOVE!” She shouted, gesturing that she was about to throw the remote at my head.

a1 (7)

“Okay, okay! Calm down!”

a1 (8)

My aunts had already discussed everything I need to talk to Donna about, but once they got home from work they went over it all over again, both talking at the same time.

“Ease into it, you don’t want to scare her off..” Said Persephone.

“Make sure you tell her about the memory potion, resurrection is excruciatingly painful, she’ll need that to forget. I think I can whip that up in about five or six days.” added Gwendolyn.

a1 (9)

“And make sure she’s serious about being with you for the rest of her life. You don’t have to do this now, you just met her last night, Yellow. You know your parents had their issues…” Persephone said.

a1 (10)

“I know, I know.” I acknowledged. “I have it under control though, sometimes you just know.”

a1 (11)

“I don’t want to rush you, but I really should get going. I have flowers to pick up, and I don’t want her to think I’m not showing up.” I said.

a1 (12)

Gwendolyn giggled obnoxiously, “But it’s only like 6:30” She said.

“Early bird gets the worm!” I smiled.

a1 (13)

“Salem, before I go, I just want to make sure that you meant what you said, you’re really going to help with the resurrection if she accepts?” I asked, stepping in between Birdie and Salem’s little spat.

a1 (16)

I could tell it pained her to admit she was going to help me out.

“I mean yeah, I guess. When you realize Clementine is the one, and this plan falls through, I’d like all the reanimation practice I can get when it comes time to resurrect my mate so I can be the heir.” She explained.

a1 (15)

“Aha, that won’t happen my dear sister, but it really means a lot to me that you’re willing to help.”

a1 (14)

“Meh, whatever.” She shrugged.

a1 (17)

“Just one hug, come on!” I said, reaching my arms out.

She grunted while pushing me off.

“NEVER.” She yelled. “Never.”

a1 (18)

“Aw why not!?” I laughed. I noticed Birdie was laughing, so now that I brightened her day, I was ready to go.

a1 (19)

I sat on the cold bench with a bouquet of flowers, waiting for Donna. I made it a goal of mine to stay very alert, so she couldn’t sneak up on me like last night.

seconds turned to minutes, and minutes to hours, and I was starting to think she wasn’t going to show up.

a1 (20)

“Whoa! Are those flowers for me?” She exclaimed joyfully, causing me to jump.

Let’s hope my next goal is more successful than that one.

a1 (21)

“Donna!” I squealed, jumping up. Embarrassed about being both frightened and overly excited to see her, I cleared my throat. “Yes. These are for you.” I said calmly. “I got orange, I remember you said that was your favorite color.”

a1 (22)

She politely curtsied as I handed her the bouquet, something I definitely wasn’t used to.

a1 (23)

“I sure do wish I could smell!” She giggled, pretending to smell the flowers.

We sat very close to one another, by the pond and talked for hours like before. I kept trying to find a place to offer her life, but at the same time I could listen to her talk forever, and didn’t want to interrupted. Even if her voice was just an echo-y whisper.

“Donna…” I began. “What if I told you with my help, you could do all those things again. Like sleeping, and eating, and smelling the flowers? What if I could hold your hand, and you could actually feel it?”

“What? How do you mean?”

b2

I stood up to explain it better.

“Remember when I told you that my family is part of a magical legacy, and I’m supposed to be the next heir?

“Yes…” She answered, wearily.

“Well, to be the next heir I have to resurrect someone from the dead, and eventually marry them to carry out the legacy. And I don’t want to sound too forward… but I’m certain you’re the one I want to do that with.” I explained nervously.

g2 (4)

She gasped enthusiastically, “You actually have the power to do that? To bring someone back from the dead?”

“Yes. Well, I myself am not that powerful, but my sister has successfully reanimated a full grown man recently, and my aunts are very powerful as well.”

g2 (5)

“Wait… You mean that you only spent time with me so that I can help you become the heir of your family? This means that you are using me, yes?” She asked, a bit unsettling.

I felt a lump in my throat, as I’ve never thought of it like that. Luckily, I was able to make my way out of that one pretty smoothly for once.

g2 (3)

“Well you found me, darlin’.” I said. “I wasn’t looking for a wife when I spent my time here. In fact, my aunts were about to schedule a meeting with my future betrothed wives earlier today, but you showed up instead. That looks like a sign to me!”

g2 (7)

I stared aimlessly at her, as the excitement and wonder poured out of her.

“Well, I do suppose the likelihood of that happening is rather narrow, no mere coincidence indeed!”

“So is that a yes?”

“It is most certainly, undeniably a yes!” She squealed.

I bit my lip as I did my best to contain my excitement. I just wanted to pick her up and swing her around like they do in the movies. But I remembered Persephone’s advice, and contained my excitement to keep from scaring her off. But on the inside I was screaming.

g2 (2)

I took a deep breath. “Great! So the next step is the memory potion.”

“Memory potion?”

“Yes. An elixir to wipe your memory clean. You probably won’t remember us meeting, or your past, but we’ll have about five or six days for you to fill me in on all your memories, and when you come back, I can re-teach them to you. It sounds like a lot, but it will be worth it if you want to be alive again.”

“I… I don’t know. I don’t like the sound of that. I want to remember meeting you.” She said.

“I know sweetheart, but it will be worth it in the end. Trust me, resurrection is ten times more painful than childbirth. I learned that in my school of bewitchment. Plus my mother was resurrected with the potion, and she has since gained some memories. They were very vague, but she got some of them back when she visited her childhood home.”

“What if visiting my childhood home is not an option. I don’t want to take the potion, I can do without it.” She said.

“Are you sure?” I asked. “The pain could be traumatizing. For you and for me. It would kill me to see you go through that…” I said, really hoping she’d change her mind.

“I appreciate the kind offer Yellow, but I would like to be resurrected without the memory potion.”

g2 (6)

I took a deep breath once again, and slowly exhaled.

“As you wish.” I said.

She began clapping eagerly. “Never in a million years, would I have ever believed I would be alive again!”

“One more thing….” I added. “When you are alive, you may not appear exactly the same as how you died.”

She was hanging on each word I spoke intently.

“You will look mostly the same, but because your remains are likely nothing but bones right now, the coloring in your genes may be slightly… different.” I explained further. “But in this day and age, people are much more accepting, and uniqueness is a good quality for the most part. You’ll still be beautiful to me no matter what.”

She smiled from ear to ear. “I’m not afraid of that, I will be able to manage .”

g2 (8)

“Well, if we don’t have to wait for the potion to be created, we can start tonight.”

“Tonight? I get to return to the earth in flesh and blood tonight?”

“If you’re ready, that is…”

“Oh yes, oh yes! I am so very ready!”

“Well okay, we have a deal, darling. Go ahead and rest peacefully in your grave, where you will fall asleep for the first time in ages. Then when you awake, I will be right next to you, and you’ll be a living person once more.”

Without any explaining or questions left, Donna quickly made her way to her grave.

g2 (9)

Everything was moving along so quickly. I began to feel dizzy as I tried to contain all my emotions. I was in a hurry to get the process started, but I needed to take a moment to process all of this.

g2 (10)

I pulled my phone out from my pocket and dialed Salem immediately. She ignored it twice but finally answered the third time with a hasty “What?”

“Salem! Guess what? I need you to tell Aunt Pers and Gwendy to prepare everything.”

g2 (11)

“She said yes!” I exclaimed loudly, my voice flowing through the trees.

g2 (12)

“I know, I can’t believe it either! And she doesn’t want the potion, so we’re doing this tonight.”

g2 (13)

I sat in the living room across from Salem, Birdie, and Birdie’s boyfriend Callan, as we patiently waited for my aunts and uncles to retrieve Donna’s remains.

It began to storm outside as the rain fell hard against the windows.

My mind was full of worries. What if the cops show up? What if they dig up the wrong person? What if she changes her mind? The loud sound of thunder made me jump, as I shook my worries off and tried to distract my mind with other thoughts.

Unfortunately, my new thoughts were not much better. I then began to start thinking about all the people I wish could be here for this special event in the Darling family history. I would have loved for my parents to help out with this resurrection. Although this will be special to me no matter who brings her back, it would have been nice to have them here, for sentimental value.

If I could have my way, I would also love for my closest friend, Clementine, to be here. She’s always been so supportive of me, but we’ve been drifting apart, and I could also see how this could be rubbing the fact that we will never be together in her face.

g2 (14)

“So like, does this mean he’ll be marrying a legit zombie? Won’t she try to eat him and stuff?”Β  Callan asked, in his usual deep, confused voice.

“No dearest, she will be a normal person again, not a zombie.” Birdie explained, like talking to a five year old.

g2 (15)

“Ugh. He is so stupid.” Salem said.

Normally I’m always there to defend the victims of Salem’s bullying, but I was so nervous I could barely speak.

Finally, the dogs began barking, which caused my stomach to flip.

g2 (16)

They all scurried into the house to escape the rain.

“Here’s the blushing bride!” Gwendolyn said, holding a burlap sack in her arms, presumably Donna’s remains.

My stomach flipped once more. The thought of my future wife being nothing but a sack of bones right now was a bit off putting, and I felt a bit squeamish.

g2 (17)

Persephone then began hastily shouting out orders.

“We’ll be performing this ritual in my room. Birdie, take your father and Callan downstairs. Barry, please help Birdie with this in case my husband needs a second babysitter. Salem, you can assist Gwendolyn and I with preparing the room.”

g2 (18)

“I need to make this loud and clear. If you are not a witch, stay far away from my room for the remainder of the night.” She ordered.

g2 (19)

“Yellow, are you sure you want to be present for this? I don’t want you taking part in this. I wouldn’t allow Salem to either, but apparently she’s done this before and has no issue.”

g2 (20)

“I’m sure Aunt Persephone. I promised her I’d be there when she wakes up.”

“Very well. Let’s get started.”

Before entering Persephone’s room, I began to feel very clammy and nervous. To avoid sweating buckets, I changed my shirt while the ladies prepared the room.

g2 (21)

When I joined them,Β  there were already candles hovering over the burlap sac of bones on Persephone’s bed.

g2 (22)

It didn’t take long for the ritual to begin, as they all seemed to be very prepared. Focusing on the magic and the bag of bones in front of them, they each began the process.

Gwendolyn read from a book as Persephone and Salem put their magic to use.

g2 (23)
My heart began pumping heavily and my palms were sweating and shaking. The storm outside began to grow louder and louder by the second. So loud, it was almost as if it was storming in the room.

As I watched all the beautiful sparkles and lights conjured out of nowhere, I was a nervous wreck. I just wanted everyone, including Donna, to walk out of this alive… fully alive, that is. I began to wonder what I was getting myself into.

g2 (24)

The burlap bag of bones on the bed slowly disappeared as the form of Donna’s spirit took it’s place, hovering above the bed. There was no turning back now, this was definitely the Donna that I played tag with at the cemetery the previous night, and the Donna that I couldn’t stop thinking about ever since.

g2 (25)

Suddenly, the ghost that was hovering a couple inches off the bed exploded into several glowing pink butterflies that lifted a beautiful orangish-pink, and completely unveiled young woman only a few inches from the ceiling.

The rain and thunder grew even louder, beams of glowing lights and sparkles glimmered around her, her eyes were gleaming with a bright, white glow, as her gorgeous coral hair draped from her head.

g2 (26)

I was completely wonder-struck as I stared at the beautiful and enchanting scene that was taking place right in front of my eyes.

g2 (27)

“YELLOW. COVER YOUR EYES.” Persephone shouted over the loud sound of crashing thunder.

g2 (28)

It completely slipped my mind that I shouldn’t be looking while she was hovering above the bedΒ  completely unclothed, but then I realized that Persephone had me cover my eyes for a completely different reason all together…

I heard a loud thump, as Donna’s body fell to the bed, I could hear her writhing around on the mattress, clearly in pain from the terrible sounds she was making.

g2 (29)

I clenched my chest, feeling as though I could feel her pain. I wished it would just be over already.

“Is she okay?” I shouted.

“She’s fine.” Gwendolyn replied, “Go fetch a sheet from your room!”

g2 (30)

I returned, with my eyes still covered, stumbling into the room with a sheet I pulled off my bed. Gwendolyn gently put the sheet on her motionless body, and I was finally free to look again.

The rain died down only slightly, as Persephone and Gwendolyn quietly discussed something about a contract amongst themselves.

I was too distracted and focused on Donna to pay attention to what they were saying.

“Is she going to be okay?” I asked Salem, worriedly.

“Oh shut up Yellow.” She groaned. “They always sleep a lot after the process, it takes a lot out of them.” She explained.

g2 (31)

Suddenly, while I wasn’t looking, the very confused Donna sat up and looked around.

“Y-Yellow?” she stammered.

g2 (32)

Her voice, which was delicate like before, but much more strained and without the echo, caused me to gasp loudly. “Donna!” I shouted, tripping over my own feet trying to get to her.

g2 (33)

I went to grab her hand, and as our skin touched, our hands began to glisten and glow with shimmers of light.

g2 (34)

“Wow..” I said in bewilderment, finally looking into her eyes as the glowing lights slowly faded.

g2 (36)

Her skin, eyes and hair, all were a beautiful vibrant mixture of pink and orange. Never in my life, have I seen such a perfect color.

“I’m… I’m alive.” She stated.

g2 (35)

“Yes sweetie, you are! Do you need anything? Are you thirsty? Do you need to take a bath? Anything?” I asked, before realizing how bizarre and stupid I probably sound.

“No, I’m just so tired…. I’m tired!” She exclaimed, realizing a familiar living human feeling.

g2 (37)

“Alright you two, break it up.” Gwendolyn snicked.

“Lo, you’ll have to excuse us for a moment. My sister and I need to get her dressed then have a little talk with Donna before she passes out.”

g2 (38)

“Talk, what kind of talk?” I asked.

“Oh, just to make sure she agrees to some terms. Don’t worry, she’s in good hands, now run along!”

g2 (39)

“What do you think they’re talking to her about?” I asked Salem, while waiting on the couch.

g2 (40)

“Who even cares? Jeez, you’re being way too clingly. Calm down.”

“You’re right, it’s only the entire family’s legacy counting on us to fall in love, marry, have children, teach them magic, and then make sure the process is repeated, no big deal.” I said, with a hint of sarcasm.

g2 (41)

Finally, Gwendolyn and Persephone came out of the room.

Persephone began speaking first. “Okay we have some good news, and some other news…” She began. “The good news is, Donna is resting peacefully, and agrees to all the conditions to marry you and carry out the family’s magic.”

A sigh of relief washed over me. “Okay… So what is the other news?”

g2 (42)

Gwendolyn looked at Persephone, and Persephone nodded, gesturing for her to speak

Gwendolyn cleared her throat, “A newly resurrected pink girl running around town will get people talking, especially law enforcement. To avoid a grave-robbery investigation, we have roughly a week to pack up and leave Appaloosa Plains.”

God I can only imagine how BEAUTIFUL Lo and Donna’s babies hair color will be once consorted o.,O Just.. Yeah.. And the scene bringing her back to life. Kudos on the editing, that hair is awesome. High five on the editing all together. I could learn a few things from you missy. Wow Donna is beautiful. Like this girl next door beauty.. Almost like tom-boy pretty? Yet not a tom-boy. Esp the freckles D: Just perrrrfect. Ooooh moving. Very logical. And I don’t know how I’ll explain the color of Sophie to this town.. I think it’ll just be likely to see odd color people, because there’s already some. Anyhow great chapter, and you were right. This was MY FAVORITE. πŸ™‚

    • omg Roseanne, haha yes I love that! Salem is TOTALLY Darleen O.O sassy and artistic yaaaassss. Thank you! :,) Yes, me too. Kirsten struggled through life terribly without her memories. Sometimes she didn’t even know who she was. And if you get really deep into it, it could very well reflect who she is today. It sucks that Kirsten never got the chance to tell Lo that, but luckily brave little Donna wasn’t scared of no pain!

      I knowww! I love both hair colors right now I can only imagine them consorted *-* Thank you so much! I edited pieces of hairs I found on google, so I don’t want to take full credit, but I don’t know where they came from. Omg I’m no expert but anything you want just ask and I’ll open my brain up! She is really pretty. And maybe just cause she was naked and natural, is why she seemed like a tom boy. She has that spirit, but her era always demanded that little girls dress up. Maybe this will be her change to be herself and relax a little ❀
      Yes, that's a pretty good idea! And coming back to life is a pretty far-fetched topic as it is, so being a special color isn't really that crazy put next to that πŸ˜›

      • Yess I just realized with THIS chapter that Salem is like your very own Darleen. Sarcastic and funny xD esp on that anti-hug thing she was going on about with Lo xD Well that’s still awesome to use pieces of hair no matter where they come. That actually looked like game content to me. That’s what I worry about if I’m gonna try to paste something to my pictures, I worry it won’t look like something from the game.Yesess She’s very pretty.. She’s gonna make all the fellas at school turn their heads. Not to mention make Clem a little jealous ;_; I can’t wait to see how you dress her up honestly. It’d be funny if Pers and Gwendy put her in some of Salem or Birdie’s old clothes xD And then one of them freaks out about it xD

        Yeah it sure is. My game is far-fetched to begin with, so I won’t worry about the logic of these kind of things πŸ˜›

      • haha omg yes! And totally. I spent a lot of time on the hair to get it to look at least like cc. Obviously I couldn’t find pieces of hair with that pretty coral-y/orangish/pinkish/peachish/salmon color, so it took a lot of time to get the colors just right ;-;

        It probably won’t look like part of the game, that’s why you have to practice a lot with it and work with it. Honestly it was pretty crazy for me to just jump in and put hair on her, because I had no plan B and it’s never been done before. (Well I did it once with Toni, but she has black hair and black hair is easy to work with) but I see people on tumblr who paint hair in all the time, and I’d love to have that skill! It probably looks terrible up close if you look at it for too long πŸ˜›

I will come back weeks later and see if there is a post usually, but with your stories its so intoxicating that I check every single day. I reblogged this chapter on my Tumblr because you deserve to have as many people see this as possible, not that you need my help cause you’re amazing, but you know what I mean ;-). Can’t wait for the next chapter. You know what it is? Its not only your writing, but the characters. You can be a good writer and have characters that I just can’t get into or care about, but in your case its both that you are a good writer and you have, in my humble opinion, some of the best characters I have ever seen in a sims 3 story. I have no idea how old you are, but if you are a youngin you should seriously think about doing something with writing in your future, although I suspect you aren’t a kid by how well you write haha.

  8. Gah!!! I loved this chapter! I’m so glad Donna said yes. That would so suck for ‘Lo if they went about rezzing her and then she’s like…nevermind, but thanks. Haha.

    Donna looks beautiful, and those pictures were AMAZING!!! I couldn’t stop looking at them. I can’t even imagine the amount of work that went into this chapter. Not only is this story amazing to read, but its visually stunning as well.

    Can’t wait to see where they all move too! Poor Salem. She’s so feisty with a bit of a nasty streak, her jealousy for Yellow and Donna is very evident. I can almost see her causing some Drama between Clem and Donna just so she can be heir.

    GREAT chapter!

    • omg I know right? Let’s hope she’ s in this for the long run though…

      OMG thank you soooo mush! <33 It was pretty difficult to be honest, but the end was so worth it. I almost met my match with this chapter haha!

      haha that's the perfect way to describe her. She used to be just sassy but I think that has been passed after she entered childhood πŸ˜› And really I think that's just the way she acts, I personally think it was surprising of her to want to help out, you know?

      But I think you're on to her plans a little bit πŸ˜‰

It’s just… thiink back to how long they’ve been there ;-; Since Seymour was just a little boy omg! and if the parents do come back, it might be more difficult when the Darlings aren’t there anymore…

  11. I HAD BEEN WAITING FOR THIS CHAPTER! πŸ˜€

    Donna is so pretty. I’ve seen her before but without the unnatural colours. I have to say, I prefer her with the salmon colour tones! The resurrection scene was very well carried out, and it was nice to see it done in a slightly different way to how the other ghosts had been resurrected. I really like her but a part of me still roots for him and Clem to get together :3

    Hmm, I wonder how they’ll handle moving. I’m curious as to where you’ll move them too! I think Bridgeport would be a nice choice or Hidden Springs.

    • IT HAS BEEN WAITING FOR YOU!! ❀

      You're right! I think both versions of her are pretty, but the salmon/coral colors really add some magic to her I think πŸ™‚

      Thank you! And well, this resurrection was very special compared to the other ones, because the prior ones were not shown, only right before/after.

      And haha we'll see where that goes πŸ˜›

      Well, it's actually a custom world that I've been in the process of filling up and tailoring to my wishes. So no EA world! But you'll see more details later on down the road πŸ™‚

    Salem is so mean to Lo πŸ˜›

    And the sunflower pattern on the chair Barry is on *wants* And he’s a good uncle. But Barry don’t ever tell Lo or Salem about the time their mommy “helped” you cuz um, ewwwww XD

    Well! Salem has it all worked out, eh? But she can’t handle the hugs LOL

    Oooh, love the sky and moon while they are sitting and talking by the pond.

    Nice recovery, Lo!

    OMG. Now! It’s time for her to be resurrected now?!?

    Are those urns on the table beside Lo?

    Poor Callan, at least he has his looks XD

    “Here’s the blushing bride”… in a burlap sack LOL

    Oooh love the floating candles…

    Look at little Salem rock this resurrection. She has skillz.

    The resurrection! O! M! G! so intense and beautiful.

    Gah just noticed the lightning strike painting right behind Lo.

    Contract? Please tell me they didn’t sign something with Really Scary Dude.

    Where did you find the yellow sheet?

    Salem is laughing at clumsy Lo =)

    Donna is so pretty ❀

    "Do you need a bath?" Well, she has been dead for a while, so maybe XD

    They are moving! Yay! after seeing all the pics of your next town, I can't wait until I see it in your game.

    Fantastic chapter, Momo. and the soundtrack was just perfect =)

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ They’ve had those forever lol πŸ˜› The light switches are from one billion pixels.
      hehehe yep, she’s mean to everyone, but Lo is her little punching bag ❀
      Oh dear that sunflower pattern I have no idea, I find most of my patterns from tumblr (: I know, he's a great uncle ❀ I think he was born to be an uncle lol. OMG yes. Those days were wild o.o
      She thinks she has it all worked out πŸ˜‰
      Yep, those are urns, Aggy and Erik. ❀
      Salem loved going in there like a little badass and showing off πŸ˜›
      Thank you!! It was pretty difficult D:
      And no, Donna was a lucky situation because since Lo chose her, they got to do things without that scary dude involved πŸ™‚ This contract is just between the aunts and Donna, but we'll learn more about that later πŸ™‚

      Thank you sooo much! ❀ Email with with the wcifs that I missed, because it would be pointless to post them here in case you don't see this haha

  14. Your chapters are always so amazing! And your editing it perfect. Like, just look at her hair when she is in the air. It is so great. You’re really lucky, you’re a great writer and editor/pose maker πŸ™‚

    Anyway, on to chapter content. Lo is just too cute, but I’m worried he might be taking things a little fast? Like, teenagers experience some pretty strong hormones and stuff, and maybe he isn’t as in love as he thinks. They barely know one another, and while I don’t doubt that Donna likes Lo… I feel like maybe she just accepted to be alive again and might resent him if their marriage turns sour.

    BUT I STILL SHIP THEM SO HARD.

    And omggg, I can’t wait to see where they move. Appaloosa Plains is gorgeous and I’ll miss it, but change always excites me. Any hints?

    • Oh goodness, I swear I never feel complete until you comment :’) That means so much to me, thank you <33

      You have a good point. Lo is just really excited. He's really wrapped up in the fact that 1, he got to actually choose her instead of being betrothed, and 2, she's everything he's dreamed of. The fact that she just happened to pop up the day he was about to schedule the meeting only makes him that much more sure that she's the one. He knows your point of view though! He knows that he's just way too excited, and he's always trying to tone it down a notch, it's part of the socially awkward thing, poor baby πŸ˜›

      I might as well just tell you, since it isn't an EA world! Its actually the town I've been working on, Pony-Bones Island You might have seen some photos on tumblr (:

      • Awe bby πŸ™‚ I don’t feel complete until you post a new chapter xD

        Awe poor little guy! He can take comfort in the fact that I ship them. I’ll totally make a self-sim and send her into your game. She can be their relationship counselor. “No, see, if you try to break up you’ll find yourselves magicked to a remote island that you can never leave. On the plus side, Lo, you might meet you parents there. On the down side, Salem will be raising your children. Just think about that for a moment.”

        Oh yes! It looks so pretty, Momo πŸ™‚ I’m totally jealous, you’re great at like everything haha. I can’t build to save my poor little life.
