Episode 1: The Octobelly Gambit




Gestation Chess Station


Oh dear! What (or who) has he gotten himself into this time? Could it be another episode of the Happy Valley Preggo Party?

Nope. We seem to have fallen into another of Sheba's nutty fantasies.

In fact, we're not even in Happy Valley here. You are looking at the entire population of the tiny town of Vita Bella. Furthermore, you are in the only household in the town!

Yup, you got it! The town of Vita Bella has only one house, and in that house you will find our Primary Guilty Party living with eight pregnant women!

It is now Wednesday, Day 3 of the beautiful life, and we are happy to report that mothers and babies are doing well, all in their third trimester. They are all best friends and quite well along in developing their essential skills.

All of the ladies are virgins, too; however, that condition will not endure for long because each of them is determined to correct it as quickly as possible.


----------
I was tempted to pilfer a title from Ian Fleming and name this one Octopussy, but decided that it would have been too obvious. Besides, there are no cats in The Sims 2. Yet.

It started last night when I was in a mood to do something really challenging. I thought of our conversations about having multiple moms in those households like the Chapters that have multitudinous babies. That got me to wondering if it would be possible to have eight pregnant women in the same house.

Now I can accurately report that it is possible, but you have to work at it! And of course, the base game is programmed to protect you from inflicting such madness upon yourself.

Episode 2: Yesterday



Girls just wanna have fun.

Our story began with eight small lots in an otherwise empty neighborhood, each occupied by a hopeful young lady with family futures on her mind. The stranger passed from lot to lot, and as he went by, an irreversible reaction was kindled by his passage.

Incongruously, though he was a bachelor, the stranger built a very large house that had eight large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and small adjacent chamber that could be converted to another bedroom. Seeing this large house at the end of the block, and being less than thrilled with the notion of living on a small, empty lot, each of the ladies decided to move in with him.

They didn't ask. Didn't even introduce themselves, at first. They just moved in and divvied up his eight bedrooms among them.

He had a nice computer, so they took turns finding employment. They were looking for jobs that required no skills because none of them knew how to do anything beyond basic human survival, and precious little of that.

It turned out that the shoe stores in Boveena were adding a lot of parking lots. All but one of them got jobs attending to those parking lots, the one holdout opting for going into Basic Training at the military base in Happy Valley.

When they discovered that they were the only women in town, and in fact the only people in town other than that one stranger, they quickly bonded. They decided to call themselves The Eight. They sorted their surnames and adopted the odd given names of One of Eight, Two of Eight, and so forth.

Astute readers will notice that one of them bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain heroic lady in Happy Valley. Alas, that is not She. Having forsaken her Christian name, she is now known simply and humbly as Seven of Eight. Her last name is George.

Starting in the early morning of the second day, as each hour passed another of The Eight discovered her delicate condition. With that discovery came an overwhelming desire to find a male with whom to be affectionate and, there being only one male in the entire town, they interrupted his calesthenics and queued up to kiss him. The photo above was taken just as Eight of Eight finally experienced her first kiss.

That evening he had to go to work while The Eight found themselves on maternity leaving, never having darkened the door of their respective work places.

With their primary source of entertainment away from home, they do what groups of pregnant ladies always do in such situations...



What pregnant ladies do while the guy's out of the house.
You can't tell them apart by their clothes. They change constantly.


They hired a stripper.

(We shan't speculate on exactly why eight pregnant ladies would want to watch an attractive female stripper. They just did. And they had a great time of it, too.)

After a couple of hours of ogling the unclad Miss Nina Hartley, they trundled off to their respective beds for a good night's sleep. His luck holding true, the bewildered owner of this abode returned from work just as Nina was leaving.

Since all of his bedrooms were occupied, he had to choose someone to bundle with. On that night, he crawled into bed with Seven of Eight, who seemed quite happy to have him there.

I love the chess-playing picture in particular (my gawd, you even color-coordinated the seating arrangements).

Eight virgin births, eh? That reminds me of a story... *8)

DC

P.S. "Nina Hartley"??

Strangely enough, the seating arrangements as well as their choice of maternity duds was purely coincidental. I haven't experimented enough yet to be sure whether they actually change their clothes from day to day. It might be that Seven of Eight (the Sheba clone) changed hers because some time that day she walked through the door.

I think Nina Hartley is the name of Danny's DMA Sims stripper. That's who they called when they wanted some entertainment.

Your game is truly blessed!

Ah! Presumably it was Danny who took the name from the porn star, then. That explains it. *8)

After playing with this household all day, I've come to the conclusion that the most difficult part of it is building a house with 16 bedrooms that doesn't look like a dorm.

Rolling on the Floor Laughing Of course it is! That's why it's so much fun!

I will confess that the amusement wore off when the babies were born and I had to keep track of all seventeen sims at the same time. Every day was pure pandemonium from then on.

It took two sim weeks to get all of them through their toddler training. I'm hoping things will settle down after they reach school age, but then I'll soon be faced with the conundrum of finding mates for eight teenagers.

Episode 3: The Fambly



Eight Blessed Events in the Offing
Back Row from Left to Right: Four of Eight, Greg, One of Eight, Two of Eight, Three of Eight, Eight of Eight (with her arms spread)
Middle Row from Left to Right: Seven of Eight, Four of Eight
Front Row from Left to Right: Five of Eight, Six of Eight



I really don't have a story to go with this image. I just thought the neighborhood shot was funny.
smile

FWIW, I don't recall how many times I tapped the mother lode when I built the big house, but I think it was only twice.

A huge chunk of the family fortune came from the initial $20,000 startup cash. I had forgotten about that. With 9 sims in the house to start, they would have had a bankroll of $180,000 at the very beginning, which would have been enough to build that house.

Then they all got jobs. After the babies were born and they started getting promotions, the bank account seriously started to swell.

Also FWIW, I've tried several times to make a less ugly house for them. It just ain't workin.

I don't want to have a multistory structure with toddlers in the house because I'd be forever chasing them when the sims carry them downstairs.

Oh.

Well... um... very well. So, let's get on with the slice-of-life tale, shall we?

Episode 4: Firstborn


I was expecting that all eight baby bombs would go off at the same time in a glorious chorus of caterwauling, but when the pregnant ladies joined the household, their pregnancies were spaced out an hour apart.

Instead of a chorus, we had more of a symphony of screaming as the babies were born in sequence throughout the third day.


One of Sixteen was the first to be born.
