BaCC Week 2: The Lovelace Family  
Since Lily got married to Felix, Rose and Violet have made do on their own. They're really happy for her of course, but life was a lot... easier with Lily around. She gave them direction, even if they got annoyed at her bossing them around sometimes.
At least the town isn't as lonely and remote anymore as it once was. They're not sure how Felix managed it, but they're actually getting tourists walking around town. A particular brand of tourist, the more adventurous type, who seem fascinated by the idea of starting out life in the sticks without any amenities. The other day Rose had to chase off a gang of spotty teenage geeks trying to peek through the bathroom window while Violet was having a bath. They claimed they were just doing research for their roleplaying campaign, or something. At any rate, it's nice to see some new people around the place.



The first spotting of a townie! I created a batch of them with the townie gun, then gave them all makeovers, which is why Parker here sports such an impressive beard.

BaCC Week 2: The Babbling Family  
Nate and Teddy have settled well into the new community, despite Nate's feuding with Davin Greengrass. With the town finally having electricity available, Teddy has been busier than ever tinkering with his robotic inventions. He's told his brother he's working on a surprise for him. Nate privately has his doubts about any surprises Teddy wants to foist on him. Bringing him back from the dead was a bit of a surprise as well, after all.
His little Shack'o'Bots is still regularly visited by its single customer, the Garden Club lady. Nate supposes she must have some sort of short term memory disorder, as she keeps buying the same toy robots over and over again. He's been discussing this problem with Felix, who at least seemed to understand that if their settlement wants to become a real town, they'll need to give people a reason to come here. Then Nate can start up a real business, instead of playing at one.



Nate: "Oooonee toy rrroooboot? Eeeex'lent choice ma'aaam. That be fiiifteeeeen simooooleons pleaaaase."

BaCC Week 2: The Greengrass Family  
Myra is coming to find out that life in this new town is not quite as idyllic as she imagined. She knows that she'd be able to grow a much better crop out in the fields rather than in this forest meadow, but Davin has been reluctant to leave the safety provided by having others around. She's got her hands full tending the garden, taking care of Cordelia and trying to mediate whenever Davin's upset someone again. She really wishes he'd try to get along with people a bit more, and it makes her sad that he's causing so much friction.

Davin on the other hand is getting more and more frustrated that nobody will do what he tells them to. He's fed up with Felix' unwillingness to move to better arable land and doesn't see why everyone seems to fall over themselves to do whatever Felix tells them to. Even Arthur, who he has always gotten along with, annoyingly sticks up for the Great Felix. He mostly takes out his frustration on harrassing Nate Babbling, that abomination of nature. At least he's good for something.

And little Cordelia? She's blissfully unaware of her parent's troubles, and has a grand time playing with her pink bunnyrabbit head.

BaCC Week 2: The Picklethorpe Family  
Last week Arthur was floored by a tummybug, and he still hadn't recovered. I was starting to get rather worried - if Sims don't get healthy they can actually die from foodpoisoning. So I kept him inside and rested him as much as possible, but Arthur gets bored quickly so I had to haul him out of the bathtub or off the couch where he was playing quite frequently.
He only settled down when he found out his good friends Nate and Teddy Babbling had been victims of a brutal burglary a few days before. Arthur resolved to Do Something About This, as soon as he was healthy again. What if people came around and stole his grilled cheese sandwiches? And Mr. Nate already has had a hard, uhm, unlife, and surely doesn't need this kind of let down on top of it.

Yes, Arthur is ready to Do Something About This.

BaCC Week 2: The Fenwick Family  
Something rather strange has been happening to Felix Fenwick, since arriving in this little scrap of Nowhere. Stranger than turning into a werewolf every night. People in this town look up to him. They come to him when they need advice or a private talk. Myra even dragged Davin and her friend Nate to his house one evening, and asked him if he couldn't sort out the differences between them. That one was a lost battle, really, but the fact that she came to him about it still thrills him a bit.
