    (Diego is from the Sims 4.)

    Hello, my name is Diego Fuentes, but just Diego is fine. Nice to meet you, Dev. Hey, didn't I do an exorcism for your neighbor once? I hunt ghosts for a living, in service of that acency, 'Ghostbusters Inc'. I remember a guy looking a bit like you bolting out of a front door at the place next to where I worked that one job. Not sure, maybe I'm getting things mixed up? I've worked for a few other celebs as well.

    To answer your question: I think you should keep the proposal at something casual. Just don't be too over the top, she might feel pressured that way. Expensive restaurants with violinists at every table and big old rocks on rings are really more of a relic from Judith Ward's time at this point. If you can't think of anything, I'd say that writing her a song would be a safe bet. I mean, you are a musician, right? Doesn't have to be a complicated piece: a simple rythm and some basic romantic lyrics in between the actual proposal will do. Oh, and don't forget to get down on one knee during that part of the song! Proposing on Valentines day sounds like a good idea: I hope she says yes.

    Also, China is a lovely destination, good choice. You have taste, dude. I've been there once because of an exorcism, but I had booked a week-long stay to take in the sights. You really have to see the Forbidden City once you're there. And the view from the Great Wall is amazing! Definitely keep it in mind for a honeymoon. Best noodles I've ever had in my life.

    Also, good to hear that you're not worried about what your friends think of you two together. If your friendship is strong enough, they'll get used to you and Hyacinth as a couple. I think you're well equipped to deal with people talking about that age gap. If you can handle the tabloids, then you can definitely handle a little smack-talk behind your back. I can understand the worries of your friends about something happening to your girl, though.
    [Diego hands Dev his card as he says the following]
    Watcher forbid, if it does... I could contact her for you. Death wouldn't have to mean disconnection for you two. The agency I work for doesn't just banish angry spirits, you know: we sometimes contact lost loved ones as well. It's honestly not even that hard for me to summon a ghost. All I would need is a headstone or urn, and about 3 minutes. Spirits can take on a semi-solid form to speak to Sims with a regular connection to the afterlife, like you. They'll be bound to their headstone or urn in that state, and it needs to be well kept. People like me can't bring her back to life, but I could at least make sure you two stay in touch should you lose her.

    The agency obligates us to shortly interview a prospective client before we take a job, though. So let's get that out of the way, just in case. Have you ever had a paranormal experience before?

    Dev, stunned, taking the card:

    Wow! Uh, sure! I...didn't know stuff like this existed, but it's almost like a kind of insurance, isn't it? Like life insurance put another way. Afterlife Assurance, anyway. The assurance that death wouldn't us necessarily part! I like that!

    And thank you, Diego, for the advice on the proposal. I hadn't even considered a song but it was right in front of my face! As for the old-fashioned rock on a ring violins thing, I'd feel corny doing it, but part of me wonders if that's what she'd want because she IS that old. But she's also really progressive and openminded (or we wouldn't be together). I'll play it by ear but I'm already getting ideas for a song. Thank you.

    And I never had a paranormal experience before. But now I that I know you exist and therefore there must be something to it, I'll ask her what she thinks. If mortality is a delicate subject for us, we may as well hang it up now.

    I sure hope I'm not just some kind of fling to her. *Deep breath*

    Hey, thanks for the advice and encouragement. You sound like you've had a lot of life experience and...death experience? I'll keep your card and talk with her. And, this is an awkward question, but uh...can ghosts and the living do more than...talk? *blushing*

    It's great to meet you and you've opened up a world of possibilities for me. And before you go, if I may ask, what's the oddest experience you've ever had on the job?

    Raven: Actually, I was putting together an outfit for the Starlight Accolades for Judith Ward, a neighbor and friend of mine. While coming up with a few gowns for her to choose from, well um... I guess we'll just say her little Pomeranian tinkled on the train of one of them. She was more than happy to pay to cover the clean-up, and even then, that gown actually ended up being her favorite to wear to the show!

    Have you ever given anyone your autograph?

    Tadeo: Um, no. I'm not that well known an author.

    Norrell (wry smile): You could answer the previous question about ghosts and the living though, couldn't you?

    Tadeo: Wh-wh-wh-wha?! What do you mean?

    Norrell: Don't play innocent. I walked in on you and Andromeda when you two were... (shudders) eugh! I can still picture it.

    Tadeo: (goes extremely red and stays silent for a moment): First of all, you shouldn't eavesdrop on other people's conversations. Secondly, stop breaking into my house without me knowing!

    Norrell: Trust me, I am never doing that again. When were you going to tell me you were sleeping in a c... c... one of those things?

    Tadeo: I levelled up my vampire skills recently and it sort of came as a side effect. I didn't tell you about the coffin because I know how you feel about them.

    Norrell: How did two of you even fit in there?!

    Tadeo: I'm not discussing this any more.

    Have you ever walked in on something and really wished you hadn't?

    Olivia: No, I... can't say I have.
    How are things going with your hometown? I certainly hope it's better than mine...

    Raven: Well, while I do live in Del Sol Valley currently, I did grow up in Newcrest. I haven't went back in some time, but from what I've heard and seen, things are going great! Many new places are coming up and around, and fresh new faces are moving in.

    What is your favorite holiday?

    Olivia: ... Things are going well in your Newcrest? I'm happy to hear it... I'm certain it'll be the same in mine, one day.
    To answer your question, we don't celebrate holidays anymore. We don't have any reason to. My mother spoke so highly of Winterfest, though...
    Hm... same question. I'm curious about these "holidays" all over again.

    April: If I do celebrate any holidays it'll be without my family since I was kicked out of the house just before I became a teenager.

    What's that sound?
  • NoWindowsNoWindows Posts: 100 Member
    Olivia: Oh, it's probably just the "zombies". Quotes because we're pretty sure they're not actually undead, just mutated to the Netherworld, but we don't have a better term for them.
    Let's see... Would you consider yourself particularly ambitious?

    Dev (in Sims3): Yeah, I guess if I wasn't before, I am now. I had no idea when I started the music career that I'd be famous so quickly.
    At first, I was just really busy between my athletic goals and my music career ones.

    But my fame and fortune increased, I bought some properties and my income increased enough that now I live in a penthouse. I'm also engaged,

    and when I asked him if he would also be mine in eternity,

    ...he said yes!

    so now we're looking at a gala evening wedding, and then a honeymoon trip to China.
    If I can just not mess everything up, that is. My old flame and I ran into each other, and it seems like we both had regrets for the might-have-beens. And now I don't know if this is cold feet, or the pre-wedding jitters, but I'm feeling torn up inside, wanting both of them.

    But whatever else, if I don't put my music career in the front of my mind, it could all be gone tomorrow, so there will always be challenges, touring with the band half the year or more. So that has to stay my overall focus, and my ambition is to grow my career, go on tour with the band even to other countries, and increase my portfolio.

    Where have you traveled, and how did you like it?

    Ikkanu: My friends took me to stay at a haunted house in Strangerville recently. It was awful! The house made strange noises, creepy objects appeared out of nowhere, there was a thunderstorm going on outside that did not look natural and there were weird things growing out of the toilets!
    The spectres were quite cute, they didn't bother me. What does bother me is that at around four 'o' clock the next day, I found myself half a mile away down the street and cannot remember how I got there. In fact, my memory is still fuzzy as to what happened after midnight. Whenever I ask my friends about it they seem to go suspiciously quiet. I have overheard them talking about 'botanical telepathy' and 'possession.' What does all that mean?!

    Has anything bizarre happened to you recently?
