You might have figured out that I have a deviant alter ego who provides most of the footnotes.

I figured it was Sheba sticking her arm out of your monitor again...

The Townie Project
Part 47: An inconvenient burglar

Various things have happened in Casa Townie since last time we checked in. The twins have gone off to college (Dawn, the Romance one, living in the same house that her big sister Gina enjoyed so much all those years ago and carrying on the proud tradition; and Rose the Family one sharing a house with her nephew Gabriel and Jen Danvers (who moved out of their dorm because it was too glitched), and enjoying frequent visits from Aaron).

The twins' father Mitch remains happily in love with Ally (see last few episodes), although he has fallen accidentally in love with Sally (and out again) at least once in the interim. The Casa is a busy place, though, and big events like weddings are hard to set up.

Eventually, everyone's schedules lined up nicely, Sally (and therefore her children) were cool with the idea, and the wedding was arranged.


They set up the Wedding Stuff out on the extensive back deck the day before.
I don't know if I've ever posted pictures of the new back deck; it was made possible mostly by the large amounts of cash and inventory items that Mackenzie brought in back in Part 35 or so.

But that night, there was a complication...


Burglar!
He snuck in through the basement door, too, and there's no alarm in the basement. Fortunately he didn't find anything he wanted down there.


"Of course I'm sure he's a burglar! He's got the striped shirt and everything!"
I had Christy call the police, but the burglar came upstairs and set off the alarm anyway, so I needn't have bothered.


"Don't worry, darling, I'll take care of this."
Sims really ought to be able to beat up burglars themselves (they can't, can they?).


The villain was caught.
For a change. But not before he stole the waterfall statue from the front of the Casa. (Which he could have taken without going into the house and setting off the alarm.)


"Boo hoo, our statue is gone!"
"This completely identical one just isn't the same!"

But no burglar can thwart the course of True Love, so everyone went back to bed to rest up for work and weddings tomorrow.

Part 48: Preparations

All and sundry were psyched for the wedding the next day.


Although the burglary wasn't entirely forgotten.
Poor Mackenzie; I think Fortune Sims take it the hardest.

Everyone had lost a little sleep due to the excitement, and the Energizer was pressed into service.


(Yes, this is a horrible shot.)
That's the bride-to-be in the energizer, the groom-to-be heading for the phone to invite the wedding guests, and other people milling around.

By the time everyone was home from work and the festivities began, it was evening.


The guests begin to gather.
That's Christy Stratton with her hip-phone ringing, matriarch Sally Raptor apparently mashing Christy's head into her side, Sally and Mitch's eldest daughter Eleanor (now Cox) to the right of them, Sally and Mitch's second daughter Gina to the right of them, and various other mixed Casa residents. More are on the way. Mitch and Ally are under the arch, being nervous.

Meanwhile, inside the house...


The twins hang out.
Long-time readers will remember how Dawn Raptor, as a teen, spent her big sister Eleanor's entire wedding inside eating chips. History now repeats itself.


Almost time!
Eleanor seems to be getting bored in the back row there. The blonde at the other end of the back row is some townie whose name I forget; she's popular with the Romance Sims, and tends to get invited to things. The standing lady with the white hair is of course former repair-person Arcadia Bradshaw.

Part 49: Man and Wife


"I, Mitch Lawson,..."


"And I, Ally Pederson,..."


"...to have and to hold..."
Sally's feelings must be richly mixed here.


"We now pronounce us hitched."


"Yay!"

(Lots of aspiration points for Mitch there; he'd been saving up that "get married" Want for a long time...)

Part 50: The Aftermath

That part went just fine. But with this many Raptors at the same party, a few fireworks were probably inevitable.


Arcadia gets a little friendly with Gina.
Offending at least three of the other ladies in attendance.


"You--" "You--" "You--" "brazen--" "brazen--" "brazen--" "..." "..." "..."
You don't want to know all the details, but the blonde townie is mad at Gina for accepting the flirt, Melissa Fancey in blue there is mad at Arcadia for offering it, and Sally is probably mad at two or three of them for various reasons. Looks like I've got some relationship-mending to do.

The non-Romance types went off to the food and the bathrooms and so on, to avoid the embarassing spectacle.


The twins missed the whole thing; they'll have to hear about it from their Mom.

The happy couple, on the other hand, were unfazed.


Nice and quiet here in the bedroom.
For the moment, nyuk nyuk.

Part 51: And after

Eventually things calmed down again.


Friendly socializing.
We like hot tubs. The happy couple is to the left, slow-dancing; they're in their normal formal clothes, because their wedding togs somehow got all crumpled.


Off in the limo.
Some of Mitch's daughters head home in the background.

And then, after pretty much everyone was gone, I noticed...


Sally going home after everyone else.
In her nightgown. How the heck did she get into her nightgown? During a wedding party???

Mysteries of the Raptors...

That's it for now. More if I ever get a spare hour again!

Hooray! Life goes on at Casa Townie!

Speaking of which, the house is really neat! Is there any chance of wheedling you into posting a tour of the house? Grin

There are some things we just aren't meant to know.

Glad you like it! I'm pretty fond of it too. There hasn't been a formal tour (or much chance I'll have the time to do one in the near future), but some of the early chapters (Part 7 through 13 in particular) give a fair impression (at least of the early days; the fancy new backyard isn't there yet, nor the basement bedrooms, nor the attic bowling alley and sundry other froofraws...).

Oh yeah! That's it!



It reminds me of the house I built for the 8 Geieffies gals, but with more balconies and more symmetry. I like balconies. For me, all those railings add a lot of appeal to the facade.

Part 52: Christy moves out

After even the aftermath of the Lawson wedding had died down, Christy Stratton (the only remaining Casa resident without a love interest) came to a decision.


She went to her room and packed up her stuff.
As well as making a little raid on the common treasury.


And then she went to the computer.
magical building faeries dot com, as usual.


Various people waved goodbye, but only Joe went with her to the curb.
They've generally gotten along pretty well, and have a high relationship, but no sparks. And of course Joe has Mackenzie.

Maybe, she thought, away from this madhouse and with a little privacy, she could finally get her life moving.

Part 53: Christy moves in

So from here on this isn't really a Casa Townie story, but since that's where it started we'll leave it in this thread for now. For background, Christy was one of Neighborhood Romance Matriarch Sally Raptor's very first lovers, and one of the senior members of the Townie Project. But aside from Sally she's never found a love interest, and in the general chaos of Casa Townie she's been feeling somewhat neglected. So here we are....


With her moving-out stipend she had a nice little place built up on Tank Street.
Near some of the other more normal residents of Neighborhood One, like the Stackses and Remington London. One of the standard Maxis houses, because I was lazy.


And with a bit of a going-away present from the Casa, she was reasonably well off.
She sold two of the statues to buy furniture and fixtures, and has the third one set up in the front yard for decoration and/or investment purposes.

And while she was at it, she changed from the "track suit and no makeup" look she'd been using all these SimYears to something a little different.


"Not bad."
"Time to go out on the town!"
