Week 1 - Evans-Thornwood  

Being part plant has its advantages. Even while taking her special potions, Dahlia still as an affinity for nature. She gets started on their garden right away so they have plenty of food.

Steven gets started on some paintings. He hopes to open a small art gallery to bring in some money.

Derrick loves cooking, but lunch meat sandwiches just don't cut it.

Dahlia can't stand being cooped up in the house.

The Evans-Thornwood house receives a lot of visitors. It seems like there is always someone stopping by for a chat or a bite to eat.

Derrick tries his hand at fishing, but realizes it takes a lot more physical skill than he initially imagined.

He finally gets the hang of it.

He still doesn't seem to be enjoying himself.

The wolves are everywhere in town, but they don't seem to cause too many problems.

Steven wanted to fix himself some dinner, but he isn't as adept in the kitchen as his brother.

Things quickly get out of control.

The boys finally seem to get a handle on it, but they've already lost the stove.

Just when they think its all over a spark catches on Derrick's pants.

Steven tries, but he can't get the blaze under control.

It doesn't end well...

Steven cleans up the kitchen so they can start restoring it.

On his way to the trash can a bolt of lightning strikes him.

His ravaged body can't take it and he falls to the ground.

The death of her two house mates is overwhelming. Things weren't supposed to happen this way!

Dahlia lays them to rest side-by-side behind the garden.

Life gets lonely with the boys gone. Dahlia takes out her frustrations on her imaginary rabbit friend.

Since Steven couldn't realize his dream, Dahlia takes things into her own hands. She decides to open a shop to sell his artwork and a few other things she's found while out hiking. Tara seems to support her plans.

She even hangs around to purchase one of Steven's paintings.

As if things weren't bad enough, Parker Parker shows up to steal more of the residents belongings. (Yes that is his real name)

Dahlia mourns the loss of the bookcase. Luckily that is all Parker made off with.

Finally the day arrives when there aren't any more potions to prevent the plant growth from spreading to her whole body.

Dahlia doesn't seem to mind.

Especially since it means she can share a joke or two with her pants.

The first harvest went really well. Dahlia packs up the produce to sell since there isn't anyone around the house to eat it.

It gets lonely in that big empty house so Dahlia tries to make friends with the local wildlife.

O_O I was not expecting those deaths!

I was wondering if the whole potions story was to explain why she wasn't a plant until she hit adult.

I wasn't expecting any of this to happen either!

Yes, the story was to make her suddenly becoming a plant sim not seem so weird. Luckily only two sims rolled supernatural so I only had two stories to make up to try and explain their transitions on becoming adults. :)

I know! I miss Steven and Derrick and I wish I had been able to play them out like the other settlers.

Dahlia was made with that plantsim skin tone in mind. I'm glad you like her. :)

Love Dahlia's plantsim skintone :) Losing two sims in one day was pretty harsh.

I think her skintone is half the reason I actually enjoy playing plant sims. Losing the boys was tough and she has to live in that big house all by herself.

Wow, what a week! Poor Dahlia!

Yeah! I certainly hadn't planned for things to go this way.
