Round 1: Williams 1 - Goin' Legit

There are only three lots left in Round 1! First up is the Williams family.
Me: Wow, Marley, you have a gorgeous view. That is a great spot to eat breakfast every morning.

Marley: It's ok.

Me: Ok? If I had that view I would never leave my house!

Marley: Don't get me wrong. The house is beautiful, and my family loves living here. I am feeling guilty about how I acquired it. You see, my wife and I were art thieves.

Me: Really? Apparently, you were good at it.

Marley: Yes, we were very good at it.

Marley: We were so good that we were able to put my wife through nursing school.

Marley: But our daughter, Malika, is getting older, and I don't want her realizing all she has came to her illegally. Also, my "boss" will be retired soon with Nick Alto coming to power. It's the perfect time to get out.

Me: Well, I can understand your reasoning, and of course I support a Sim who wants to earn an honest living. What are you going to do now?

 Marley: Excuse me for a minute, I hear the phone ringing.

Marley: Naw, Nick, I'm not interested in the job. I'm goin' legit, man...What? I don't care if you need me for this one last job. There will always be "one last job." I'm done...Come on, man, I've got a baby girl...I do what you gotta do. Can I at least think about it? Ok...yeah, we'll be in, you have a good day.

Me: That didn't sound too good.

Marley: He said he would expose me if I didn't do one last job for him.

Me: He's blackmailing you? Not surprised.

Marley: It's all good. He's giving me fodder for my new career.

Me: What new career?

 Marley: I'm going to write suspense novels about an art thief.

Me: Well, they do say to write what you know about. Good luck, and watch your back!

Their house is pretty crowded with two adults, three toddlers, and only one bedroom.

Talia's roommate, Noemi, married Fiona's ex-husband and moved into a new home.

As for Talia, she had triplets (two girls and a boy) with her husband, Adam. I renamed the triplets, but the SP message didn't pick up on it. The triplets are actually named Julia, Lena, and Fabian.

Ooh...I bet Corny and Agnes are getting together to plan Agnes's wedding.

 Could these two be any more different? I don't expect this to last long.

Pablo's ex-wife has moved on to Casanova, Galen Hickey. I know I have said it before, but Katrina, Fiona, and Jennifer just can't stay away from the Casanovas and gigolos.

I don't find it a shame at all. This opens the door to a Pauline and Hank reunion!

Ok, so Marley and Aimee wanting to "go legit" was inspired by both of them starting off in the Criminal career, but wanting to switch to Writing and Medicine. Nick Alto did actually call Marley to discuss art, so  that's where I got the idea of them being art thieves.


  1. Great idea for Marley to use his former "career" as inspiration for his novels! People will eat that stuff up!

    1. LOL! Yes, I hope so. I really like that Sims can specialize in genres. Marley will be my suspense writer, and I have a nature writer coming up.

  2. OMG, that view! I would be one HAPPY sim if I had that view to gaze out at every day. ;)

    Awww, I am glad that he wants to go legit for his daughter. I doubt that it will be as easy as he thinks, though.

    Triplets?? I still haven't had ANY in my game. I guess I should be glad. Dealing with triplet toddlers makes me cringe just thinking about it.

    1. Mao, you and me both. I could look at that all day.

      Once you're in with the Altos, you're stuck. I don't think he's going to have an easy time getting out either.

      Triplets do keep you busy. Luckily, when my Lazlos had them, there were lots of adults around to help. Talia is an NPC, so I don't have to worry about hers.

  3. I like that s3 sims sometimes wish to shift careers even if they have a job. That never happens in S2.
