Coventry! That's it! That is a very succinct description of what I had in mind when I said I sent them to Boveena, that off-screen producer of shoes, obnoxious cheerleaders, and third-rate kicky bag teams.

More Damion and Lucy
1/5: Life together

Twenty or so pictures, documenting various significant events as Damion and Lucy's world-lines flow along together.


Potty talk
We know what these Family sims want. (Edit: except Lucy is Popularity, heh heh.) Damion is a little dubious, but those beautiful brown eyes...


The new maid
Odd-looking creature, but we're sure she'll grow on us. She seems agreeable enough so far.


Meeting some of Damion's college friends
Professor whatsisname there seems impressed by Lucy in her undies. Whatsername coming along the sidewalk is another of Damion's old lovers from SSU. How much has he told Lucy about his former habits, we wonder?


Dissension among the Professors
Let see, this was complicated. Damion had various Profs over to meet Lucy, and (being a Drama professor after all) Lyndsay there started to spontaneously flirt with the other professor. He rejected her advances, but Damion (perhaps with his new perspective on love) was disgusted by Lynsday's behavior, and fell out of love with her.

Cuddling on the bed that night, Damion whispered to Lucy, "You remember what we were talking about the other day?"


A happy woman
My Sims are so fertile; I can only remember once that it took even two tries to get the lullabye music.

2/5: Happy Birthday, Damion!

The next day (or so) was Damion's birthday.


Make a wish!
What could he be wishing for?


Confetti everywhere
Well, definitely not these clothes...


Hmmm...
But the overall look's not bad. Distinguished.


Lucy approves.
Old age is nice so far.


"You're hotter than ever, babe."

3/5: Interlude with random pictures


"You're hotter than ever, babe."
Narf narf. Damion's finding it surprisingly easy to stay Platonic with all his old lovers (except for those nice ardent greetings and goodbyes). He may have taken longer than some Sims, but I think Damion's finally grown up...


Admiring her as she sleeps
This True Love stuff is pretty nice. (Now that I have Night Life I could like change his aspiration to Family; but so far I like the story better with him being Romance and devoted anyway.)


Off to work
Now these are the right clothes!

Egad! That maid doesn't even appear to be human! shocked

That's two eyeballs in a row tonight! These must be exciting times!

So sorry to hear about her accident, but that last picture of Lucy makes up for it! smile

4/5: Pop!

Remember that picture of Lucy smiling a day or two ago?


Pop!
Or actually "Mom", hee hee.


"Guess what, love?"
Did the clothes give it away?

Lucy, natch, wanted to have a party to celebrate.


Another roof-raiser
She doesn't mind if he swoons at Gina a bit, as long as everyone has a good time.

5/5: And not only that


Damion is smitten
He thinks about her constantly. All he wants is to please her and make her happy.


"Will you, urm, m-m-marry me?"


That'd be a "yes", then.


Misty different-colored memories.
I was disappointed by how boring the text for the Romance sim engagement memory is: not such a good idea for a Sim like him, indeed!

So here are Damion and Lucy, engaged to be married and soon to be parents. Who would have thought?

Yeah, I first saw her from the back; nice shapely blonde getting out of the Maid's van. Then I swung around to the front and was a bit taken aback, I admit. *8) But I don't want to be superficial here...

Maybe "not human" is close to the mark; the particular mix of features that Genesis rolled up may not correspond even roughly to any actual genome on Earth. Hence our surprise!

I s'pose if you postulate extraterrestrial origins, it doesn't matter what sims look like! But her body seems too human to account for that.

My guess: A terrible accident and really inept plastic surgeons.

Damion and Lucy and Violet
1/6: A little furious backstory

I never really liked Damion all that much when he was in college, and when I moved him into the Neighborhood I figured that I probably wouldn't play him very often and he'd be just a useful walkby in other lots now and then, and fodder for those Romance Sims with bedpost-notching Wants. So, naturally, I immediately got interested in his story, and have been posting about him more than anybody else lately...

We start with a little backstory, or maybe forestory, over at Gina Raptor's place.

After Suzette's positive experience, the idea of car ownership began to catch on in Neighborhood One. Gina Raptor was the next buyer.


Showing it off to Katelyn.
Knowing Gina, she's planning to test out the suspension. *8)

She and her friend were just getting cozy in the front when Damion happened to stroll by and notice what was going on.


Rowr!
Who knows why Damion was so angry. Envy of the girls' youth? Doubts about his own engagement, Lucy's pregnancy, the end of the carefree playboy years? Or just the inexorable laws of physics.


For whatever reason, he went away Furious.
The first time it happened in my game, I think. Gina and Katelyn are blithely socializing behind him, probably laughing about the whole thing. Note the Langerak place (left) and the Danverses' (right) in the background; I do like the new NL 'see other lots' stuff. Makes the neighborhood feel much more knit together. And yeah, that's an Electro Dance Sphere up on the slope above the car; Gina tried out her mom's (which I also haven't posted about yet), and just had to have her own.

The reason for this backstory will become evident a couple of parts from now.

Damion and Lucy and Violet
2/6: Welcome, Violet!

Back at the Pad time passed happily, with parties and games of pool and only the occasional moment of remembered rage on Damion's part. And eventually...


Time!
I'd been thinking about having them get married while Lucy was still pregnant, because pregnant brides are so appealing, but I wasn't quick enough.


Welcome, Violet Hanby!
"Whoa, my mom's the maid?"

Damion and Lucy both fell in love with the new arrival instantly. Here's Damion taking his daughter off to her crib, while Lucy finishes eating and prepares to go buy some new clothes.


They're both thinking, "Lucy Liu may be hot, but our Lucy's even hotter".
They added a little 3x3 nursery just next to the bathroom there; having the baby sleeping in the big main room with the bed up on the dias wouldn't have been conducive to restful sleep.

Lucy called a cab, and came home with some new clothes.


There we go!
She bought a few of the wilder-looking new NL outfits, but this was the only one that she was willing to wear at the moment. Some of them are very silly! And now having taken off her Maid's cap I'm not sure she'll ever be able to put it on again; have to experiment with that sometime.

3/6: More fury

At a party not long after, Damion apologized to Gina.


"I was just being an idiot; forgive me?"
Gina seemed somewhat mollified.

When most of the guests had gone home and Violet was asleep, Damion and Lucy started to settle down for bed.


An idyllic evening.
I do like that outfit. Damion's a lucky guy.

But then Damion remembered that Gina was still out in the hot tub. He got up and called her in, so he could say goodbye and maybe apologize again. But when Gina came inside and saw the peaceful domestic scene, she blew up.


Rowr yourself, old man!
In game terms I have no idea what happened here; Damion wasn't doing anything remotely amorous with Lucy when Gina came in and got a jealousy reaction. In story terms, Gina's feeling as envious of Damion having a live-in love as Damion was feeling of Gina's untrammelled freedom back in Part One. Very fitting!

Gina's also becoming furious at Lucy here, of course, which is too bad because they were Best Friends. (See Part 6 below.)

Damion and Lucy and Violet
4/6: Tying the knot

Not long after Violet was born, we had another Major Life Event.


The wedding guests arrive
That's Brandi LeTourneau and Justin Danvers, both good friends of the family for reasons that I'm not entirely clear on. For quite awhile after Damion passed the SSU house along to him, Justin would call Damion every night just to talk. The Brandi connection I've forgotten, though.


Petals from heaven
Under the Rose Arch. Was the arch recolorable pre-NL? I don't remember it being.


Man and Wife
Yay! Christy Stratton also joined the festivities at some point. Brandi is overly interested in the pool table.


Time to feast!
Both of them seem a little dubious here, Lucy with the cocked eyebrows and Damion with the bad memory and the underarm scratching. But it's too late to back out now!
