Amelda Gruesome and Amanda Truesome: a vampire story

JoAnne65JoAnne65 Posts: 20,931 Member
This is the random story of the adventures and experiences of an evil yet charming vampire, made possible by @Zeldaboy180, who got tired of my frequent though idle announcements planning to buy the TS4 Vampire pack but constantly failing to do so. "I bought it for you", he Discorded me one night, "and I only want one thing in return, that you let me know and show me how you like it." That was tongue in cheek of course but I actually really really like the pack ánd my vampire, and since I don't want to lose her story hidden in PM's, I'm creating her own little corner here.

May I present to you, Amelda Gruesome.

"You couldn't come up with a more original name?"
- Sorry, but this is how you're called.

It's morning and since it's lethal outside for vamps, this is a good time to start off with some skilling.

By the time it gets dark outside she's learned quite a few useful things.
Time to make some music in the basement. She has the virtuoso trait but so far you can't really tell hehe...

Muhahaha!

"I'm getting thirsty."
- Well, let's check out this neighborhood first.

I take her to her new neighbour, a guy I created and moved in next to her in Forgotten Hollow.

You can tell she's ready to bite, but I was still in the supposition that she'd had to become good friends with him first and ask permission.
So blablablablablablabla :mrgreen:

And then he walked away to get a book, how rude. So we change plans and decide to travel downtown.
To the karaoke bar!

No shortage of male interest B)

- Ehm, you might want to hide your intentions there for a bit...
"Shut up, this is taking way too long, I'm parching."

qnDcKPt.png

ADf2EFp.png

That didn't go well. By now she was really really REALLY thirsty, so time to drop the pleasantries!

And to our big surprise that worked :blush:

Love the bite marks!!!

Then we went outside to get a good picture for my signature. This one didn't make it but love the moon.

    Brand new day, starts with taking a shower.

    kDhYrJL.png

    And a short visit to her neighbour because I wanted to tweak his face a little.

    xw4eEKU.png

    Then reading. I like they don't need much sleep and can really spend their nights outside and study when the sun is shining.

    iv2oOXY.png

    Then she got an invitation to come over to the festival. It was past 6pm so I hoped that was late enough for her but no :p

    Xj5Bcn8.png

    No worries though, the museum was around the corner.

    C3uFidq.png

    C4ctWuj.png

    Killing time is easy when you're evil >:)

    c3avLuk.png

    At 7pm giving it another shot outside. Nope :D

    EZcrazR.png

    (poor girl)

    SUb6WSs.png

    kAD0TOS.png

    She didn't stay poor for long though because she was followed by a guy and she really likes guys.
    This guy looked a bit young though (thought he was a teen to be honest) so I dragged him into CAS and made him to our liking (my liking is my sims' liking B) ).

    m6eMrcg.png

    He was interested in her as well.

    Night at the museum...

    QPG9PEm.png

    vB8QlSF.png

    It was past 8 now and she was ok outside, but the festival unfortunately had been decamped.
    So we decided to use some of the inspiration we got from our museum visit and make our own piece of art.

    Ge7ly9l.png

    1yMenjc.png

    "HEY!!"

    FxlXlkk.png

    "Can you quit besmirching our city square please?!"

    iCgBYwa.png

    "Can you mind your own business please?"

    Dnx54R1.png

    "Ugh... some people..."

    qZe2TQg.png

    "Where was I."

    pjqQ6xy.png

    a68xbs2.png

    kT8R6Jf.png

    - Ehm, Amelda..?

    5ZBizz5.png

    - Amelda..?

    dTm2xmp.png

    - Aren't you forgetting something?

    y8TNa1c.png

    "What..?"
    - The sun?
    "Oh, ugh."

    J94ClnL.png

    Yeah. Morning had broken, time to head for her good old basement bedroom :grimace:

    @enson85 Thank you!
    @pammiechick I've uploaded Arun for you :blush:

    "Ok, where are we."

    q0DuV24.png

    XGHgxcM.png

    We're in the lion's den: Vladislaus Straud's place and we find the master of the house behind the pipe organ, playing something classical and impressive.

    Ysg9aDD.png

    Amelda is not impressed.

    ujxu3l8.png

    I make them start a conversation about the state of the neighborhood which doesn't provide any information like I was kind of hoping, so I ask him to teach her about vampirism next. Vlad jumps up willingly.

    Y8H7x2J.png

    HICoupo.png

    SXgM0A8.png

    KsmqhKQ.png

    For some reason this makes Amelda angry... :/

    ACy18fz.png

    I try to mend things (and so does Vlad, staying very polite) but to no avail.
    What's wrong with you girl, where are your manners!? You're a guest here and the man's dangerous, we wouldn't want to rub him the wrong way.

    cKhsk29.png

    xQZDQh6.png

    Amelda does.

    QfiXiuR.png

    DwIaRGc.png

    HRewNpS.png

    Finally she's beginning to get on Vlad's nerves (and who could blame him).

    KnFZoD6.png

    I try to cool her off by directing her to the pipe organ...

    KjXwImm.png

    And when that doesn't help, off to the mirror to calm down.

    gVWy7oc.png

    6MzbXCq.png

    No reflection <3 <3 <3 !!!
    Time for a duel.

    Cute :D ...

    HBJhD4w.png

    - Did you just beat the grandmaster? :o
    He must have allowed her to win o:)

    HiSLX9M.png

    In any case he's a good sportsman about it. And continues his lessons when asked.

    R01pk9a.png

    Showing off...

    lsHeHYG.png

    By now I'm being acquainted that I can start choosing powers and weaknesses, which is great!
    I choose 'vampire creation' and 'bat form'. Which means I have to choose a weakness as well (this is so good!!) and I pick 'withered stomach'. This system really inspires to develop your vampire further, love it!

    Of course I want to test her power to transform human sims asap, so we say goodbye to Vlad and head to the city, where we meet an old friend.

    EycOHSL.png

    "Have no fear, look, I can be a good girl too when hungry if I want to be."

    That is....

    eWCLu6j.png

    We find Arun dozed off on a couch (and feel kind of bad because we invited him over and apparently woke him up).

    NplnuAc.png

    Aww, ain't he cute? And he talks in his sleep too.

    wEqsHkz.png

    We wake him up, considering to turn him as well...

    C2uR0bO.png

    rgc1c2k.png

    Nah, let's just have a drink instead (the transformation didn't quench her thirst and the plasma pack didn't fully either).

    "Tadaa, chapter 3."
    - You finished two books already?!
    "I'm aiming for perfection. Besides, what else is there to do between those walls."

    nXkKYwM.png

    However, Arun throws a spanner in the intentions of our diligent student and calls to invite her over to a party.
    It's a little early but we hope she'll be able to find some shelter so we accept.

    FsT6zs1.png

    The party's taking place on a small island with no shelter, but for some reason the sun doesn't affect her here so hurray for that.
    Arun runs off and Amelda finds herself left behind with a bunch of strangers. And potential dinner so there's that.

    3MhQx0d.png

    "What's with the smiles? Take them off please."

    DcMDKf5.png

    "Lighten up, it's party time!"

    exaYyta.png

    Oomf.

    sA4J3x7.png

    Oh, whelp. Is there a doctor in the house? This made me lol, who goes to a party when in labour :D And a salient detail, it was her husband who invited my sim over B) Apparently he can't be bothered, there's Sims for you.

    SPQRKgH.png

    Where is he anyway. Let's find him.
    "Hé, someone stole my style."

    CADl3Ca.png

    Then we remember she bought herself a voodoo doll yesterday at the festival that's still unused in her inventory, so let's find out what that's about.

    7S8PcgS.png

    PnFi0XI.png

    "She doesn't have a clue what's going to happen to her, muhahaha!"
    - Yeah, funny. Now, pinch her.

    HejZ0id.png

    Unfortunately I don't quite understand how and then we get distracted.

    "Still in pain eh? Can't someone take you to the hospital?? Seems tonight's the night."
    "I'm trying to reach my husband but for some reason he won't pick up the phone."

    CLDDGu7.png

    vbQh6ET.png

    kcfmUDk.png

    Ah, so there he is. Sleeping beauty.

    ("Psst, who invited her over? She's super creepy...")

    msMtVFL.png

    KeE9lN6.png

    CFTQzzd.png

    6RJXZnc.png

    "I AM creepy. So now you know. And you will be creepy too, pretty soon."

    FcPyFjq.png

    Vd6Ho8t.png

    XI2ogA7.png

    AUJ5Z4P.png

    Oh dear, did Arun just see what she did there...?
    No no, he's only assisting his wife finally, in the traditional Sims way that's helped so many women throughout the history of the game.

    2d8pXxL.png

    x0GLxrm.png

    Time to test another power!

    "Goodbye party, I'm going to light some fire."

    BGHIStf.png

    With gasoline. Please don't try that at home, you may end up with a makeover you never wanted.

    8TBI57I.png

    "Wanna dance?"

    iLAOYoz.png

    "Sure!"

    And then someone suggested to pop over.

    @Busufu I see you have a vampire story of your own! Read two chapters, it’s giving me new ideas (like I think it might be a great idea to play more vampires because you can give them their own powers and weaknesses, and their own character). Like the story!

    - Hi!
    "..."
    - I said: Hi!
    "Where were you? It's been months."

    Ig7wCiq.png

    - Yeah, I know, I'm sorry, I've been kind of... busy.
    "There's no such thing as being too busy for Sims."
    - ...
    "Did you play hér...?"
    - Who 'her'? Sims 3 you mean?
    "Ya."
    - Nope.
    "Well, ok, that's something I guess. Alright then..."
    - Shall we continue? So, you were at a party and Vlad came along. What happened?

    SHiRUBz.png

    "Not much really. I tried to impress him and he tried to impress me and then I got annoyed."
    - Again...?
    "Yes. Because he is annoying."

    - Understandable I guess.
    "Yup. And then I saw this voodoo bear thing I had lost, it was lying behind some bushes so I figured I could give that a shot."

    Thanks :smiley:

    So, I introduced Amelda's sister because checking out vampires seemed more interesting to me when I had a counterpart for her who would make different choices where it comes to vampire powers: meet Amanda Truesome.
    "She's not even my full-sister and besides, I hate her. Can't you make her live somewhere else?"
    - Sorry but no. Now, be nice.

    "You're ok with this? Because I am not."

    "Whatever, as long as you keep out of my hair. Now, stop whining, I need to study the fine arts of vampirism and so do you apparently."

    "I need some fresh air."

    "Where am I?"
    - You said you needed some fresh air so here you are. I'd hurry inside though if I were you because it's only 6pm. We wouldn't want you to turn into a torch. Plus you can break into people's houses now so let's try that!
    "Ok, that'll be easy. Hey, we're at Arun's place?!"

    873PZcl.png

    - We are but ignore him for now. Do the breaking in thing.

    59sN18c.png

    - Oh, look, his wife's off to work! That's perfect!
    "Why is that perfect? She doesn't bother me."
    - Because I have a cunning plan...
