Azure Skies: Chapter 9

We start off today with a dinner party hosted by Patrick for his Master Chef aspiration

Right now I’m focusing on having Aleesha finish up her requirements mostly involving festivals and food trucks. Here’s a shot of her getting her fortune told at the Romance Festival.

Ophelia has nothing to do these days except level up her wellness skill

Aleesha had her last required baby, another girl with blue skin! We can have an heir poll this time! Her name is Renee Azure Connors.

Birthdays galore! Patrick and Joselyn became young adults, Leo became a teen, Pamela a child, and Renee a toddler all within a few days of one another.

Aleesha got abducted randomly. I would love it if one of my male sims had an alien baby at some point in this challenge, but we never have any space anyway.

Renee became a child

And the whole family (plus rando townie) gathered around the TV to watch the countdown to midnight on new years eve

Pamela aged up into a teenager with the Painter Extraordinaire aspiration

Aleesha won the contest at the Spice Festival

Then aged up into an elder

At some point someone joined the athlete career and got the trophy cabinet reward. I put it into the house in case anyone won a trophy of some sort, but my sims decided to just put dirty dishes in it and then not be able to get them out lol

Patrick moved out after he completed his aspiration and the family adopted another dog: Monty. Also Leo became a young adult.

And finally, Renee became a teen with the Friend of the Animals aspiration (sigh). I already did this one with Aleesha, but I’m going for completing everyone’s initial aspiration.

And that’s all for now! Heir poll will be linked in the forum post.

Azure Skies: Chapter 8

We’ve got a lot to cover this chapter as I’ve been playing quite a bit and not updating. Here we go!

Aleesha won the first karaoke contest she entered! I was surprised as her singing skill was only level 5 or 6 at the time.

Blue finally went to the great big dog park in the sky 😦

Lawson aged up into a child

Ophelia needed to have one more child to move along in her aspiration. We had two spaces in the household at the time so of course she had twins, sigh. Meet Patrick and Joselyn! Fortunately we got another girl, so Jasmine will be able to move out to make more space.

Time flew by and before I knew it Patrick and Joselyn were toddlers

Jasmine is getting to know the hot hermit from Granite Falls before she moves out to help her mother fill her aspiration goal of having a child get married

Jasmine and Pippa posed for their portraits

And Jasmine got with the hot hermit, whose name is Arian McCormick

Snapped this pic of Olivia (I think?) at the flea market just to point out that someone is selling their kid’s homework! Parent of the year right there lol

Then we had a triple birthday celebration! Lawson became a teen with the Archaeology Scholar aspiration and Patrick and Joselyn became children.

Lawn ornament update. Around this time Aleesha had her first baby, a boy named Leo Azure Connors. I forgot to have her eat strawberries, unfortunately Leo is not eligible to be heir.

Lawson made a few trips to Selvadorada, once with his aunt Neelah and once with his mom Ophelia. On this trip it rained the whole time unfortunately.

Ghost dogs still poop, who knew?

So many birthdays around here! Neelah became an elder, then moved out. Patrick and Joselyn became teens. Patrick has the Master Chef aspiration and Joselyn has Renaissance Sim. Joselyn will be sticking around for a while to have 4 grandkids for Ophelia. Lawson became a young adult and Leo became a child. What a cutie!

Lawson posed for his portrait. The portraits are about to spill out of the dining room. I might move them to the hallway which goes throughout the house.

Aleesha (I keep wanting to call her Amy!) had her second baby, this time a girl named Pamela Azure Connors. And she’s blue! Potential heir right here. And I’m pretty proud of the almost full wall of birth certificates back there.

Lawson looking pretty pleased about that dirt clump lol

And Pamela as a toddler.

Aleesha has completed most of her requirements, she just needs to have one more baby and do some festivals and food trucks. And that brings you up to date in the Azure Skies OWBC!

Azure Skies: Chapter 7

To start off this chapter, we had three birthdays:

Octavia became a young adult

Neelah a teen

and Aleesha a teen as well.

The three adults take advantage of the fact that the kids are at school to watch the Game of Lllamas season premiere.

They’ve had a fireplace since the start and this is the first time it caught fire!  Luckily no one was hurt and nothing was damaged.

Amy takes a shower in the family vault lol

Octavia sits for her portrait and decided to make that face.  I had a hard enough time getting to see her face at all with her hair like that!  Shortly after Octavia completed the Master Mixologist aspiration and moved out.

This left room for a new puppy to be Aleesha’s companion!

Jasmine became a teen and she randomly has grey eyebrows??

Meet our new puppy, Pippa!

Who didn’t stay a puppy for long

Neelah is now a young adult

As is Aleesha. Neelah got the Outdoor Enthusiast aspiration and Aleesha got Friend of the Animals (perfect!). Shortly after their birthday they went camping to start on Neelah’s goals. Unfortunately she’s also Squeamish, so she actually hates camping lol.

Aleesha started a fire which she quickly put out.

Upon returning from Granite Falls, there were two deaths in quick succession. First went Amy

then Archimedes. I ended up giving Blue an age-down treat just before getting her pregnant, so she’ll be around for a little while yet.

I built a little graveyard behind the house.

Frankie Bheeda died of old age, so Ophelia needed a new man. She got with Tetsu Shimizu who she met at the park.

And before I knew it she had little Lawson Azure Shimizu! One more baby to go for Ophelia.

Lawn ornament update.

Neelah needed to go back to Granite Falls to meet more goals. Why, hello there Mr. Hermit!

Aleesha is now seeing Jonathan Connors (I added his family from the gallery when he and Aleesha were both children so she and Neelah could have some friends). He’s quite a cutie!

Lawson became a toddler.

Just as Jasmine became a young adult. If Ophelia has another boy, I’ll keep Jasmine around and have her have Ophelia’s required grandchildren. If Ophelia has a girl, Jasmine can move out.

Blue finally became an elder and stayed that way.

And I leave you with Aleehsa’s portrait. Exciting times for the Azure family!

Azure Skies: Chapter 6

Maybe time for a little recap at the start of this chapter:

Our founder, Amy Azure, has had six children by three different fathers. There was Braydon Azure Frost (the only boy), twins Olivia and Ophelia Azure Ha (half alien), Octavia Azure Ha (half alien), and twins Neelah and Aleesha Azure Acharya. And of course their dog, Blue. So far Braydon has moved out, Olivia and Ophelia are young adults, Octavia is a child, and Neelah and Aleesha are toddlers. Aleesha is slated to be our heir as she has Amy’s blue skin, a requirement for one of the bonuses I’m attempting.

A lot is gonna happen in this episode as I played a long time with few screenshots. I tend to forget when I have so many sims in the house, lol. Onward!

Ophelia is now dating Frankie Bheeda, Jesminder and Arun’s son. Ophelia has the Big Happy Family aspiration, so she needs to have a family of her own. I’m not moving Frankie in because I don’t have the space.

Olivia just has to complete the Bodybuilder aspiration before I move her out. So I’m working her to death on the workout machines. After a few days she moves out.

Then Ophelia got pregnant by Frankie and had baby Jasmine! I’m awful at coming up with names so I decided to name her after her grandmother Jesminder.

At some point Amy woohooed with ghost Neelesh. He can’t die again, right? And I got that achievement “What would it be like?” which always cracks me up.

Amy is finishing up her requirement of eating all the food stall recipes at this very popular Moroccan food stall.

Amy and Ophelia posed for their portraits. Then we had a bunch of birthdays! First Octavia became a teen:

Then Neelah and Aleesha became children:

And Jasmine became a toddler:

I put the money trees back out and saved up a while to renovate the house:

I used some pre-built rooms and some gallery rooms. I did the outside of the house myself which is probably why it makes no sense lol. I hung all the portraits so far in the dining room:

Then they adopted a male puppy named Archimedes:

Isn’t he precious?? Quickly he grew up:

For now there’s no room for a puppy, but once there is these two will be having Aleesha’s companion! I can’t wait to see what he/she looks like.

Jasmine became a child.

And it’s already Harvestfest again! I’ve never seen them around a tree like that before. We did considerably better on the gnomes this year although Octavia had to beg for forgiveness as seen here.

Everyone ate a grand meal together.

And I had a great time rearranging the lawn ornament collection after the holiday ended.

Then Amy became an elder! I’m sad that her hair isn’t blue anymore and that she’ll soon no longer be with us. She only has a few food stall recipes to go to finish all her requirements, and we do need the space, but I get attached to my founders, ya know? That’s all for now!

Azure Skies: Chapter 5

I decided to include pets in the family portraits because why not, and I got this super cute shot of Blue! I’ve been feeding her an age down treat every time she becomes an elder this whole time. My plan is to adopt a male dog and have them breed once the next heir is a child/teen, that way she and the dog grow up together :).

So, HarvestFest is going well….

After a while with the money trees, I finally was able to buy Brindleton Pawspital! I eventually put the money trees in their inventory since cash was piling up and I didn’t want it to get too easy. Although now that I think about it, maybe I should just keep going and get them a vault? I do need to renovate the house sometime soon though…

I changed the vet clinic up just a little, expanding the office and putting in a cooler in case Amy gets hungry.

Octavia became a child! At some point I got Amy pregnant again by an elder named Neelesh Acharya. I accidentally woohooed him to death and thought I got a screenshot but evidently not.

Aren’t you cold??

Amy had twin girls this time, and I named them both after their father. This is Neelah

And this is Aleesha! Finally a blue skinned baby! So, we have our heir.

Just having Amy run the vet clinic long enough to finish up the vet skill.

Olivia will be moving out as soon as she completes the Bodybuilder aspiration (the twins became young adults, maybe I lost those screenshots to?). This is the face she made for her portrait lol.

I’m having Ophelia max the DJ Mixing skill since it isn’t tied to any aspirations. This is a shot of Blue tapping her paw to the beat!

Neelesh is the most helpful ghost ever, except for how after this he went around the house and broke EVERYTHING, lol

And then the babies became toddlers!

Amy now has both the Chopstick Savvy and Spice Hound traits. In addition to going to the festivals a lot to learn all the food truck dishes, I’ve also been having her make them at home. You don’t get a notification or anything when you get one of those traits, but now she gets confident whenever she eats spicy or chopstick food.

I’m working on getting Ophelia a husband to have babies with. Since she’s not the heir, I could have her husband move in, but I probably won’t just for space considerations. Between Aleesha’s line, Ophelia’s line, and the dogs, it’s going to be a very full house. Wish me luck!

Azure Skies: Chapter 4

Starting off with Amy awkwardly throwing a simoleon into the well to no effect.

We had three birthdays on one day, so Amy made a cake out of everyone’s favorite fruit in this house, strawberries! First Olivia became a child

then Ophelia

and finally Braydon became a teen.

He aged up with the mean trait, which will come into play later on.

The girls became partners in crime, wreaking havoc on their school together!

We finally got our money tree! It takes a while to grow to the point of sprouting money, but we’re well on our way to Brindleton Pawspital.

I decided to get Amy pregnant by Dawson Ha one more time. This turned out to be a mistake, but I did get a cool pre-woohoo shot from inside the rocket ship.

Just after getting it on with an alien in a rocket ship, Amy got abducted.

And after a few days, little Octavia was born! She unfortunately also has the alien blue skin, not Amy’s. I think the alien skin tone might be more dominant than the human one. If I had realized that I would have gotten her pregnant by a human. Also she has the fertile trait and got a fertility massage, but still had only one baby. *sigh*

Amy finally won a karaoke contest!

Braydon kept destroying the girls’ doll house and I had to wait until noon the next day to have someone repair it. I was considering locking him out of their room, but ultimately decided to just move him out after he finished his aspiration as a teen anyway (The Curator).

Brayon aged up and I moved him out immediately, but not before getting his portrait painted by Amy and farming his aspiration points for one more money tree seed!

Now we’re going!
Then we had three more birthdays the same day. First Olivia

Then Ophelia

Ophelia aged up with the Big Happy Family aspiration, so it’s too bad she’s not heir. It’s going to be a full house, that’s for sure! Then Octavia became a toddler!

I also decided to update Amy’s look since she’s almost an elder but I’m planning on giving her a potion of youth as she’s not done with everything I want her to do yet.

I’ve done the three required pregnancies, but I don’t have a female heir with Amy’s blue skin. I decided at the start to play for points, so I’m going to have her have more children until I get the desired heir. Plus, then I’ll have more sims to finish more aspirations and skills, right?
