"Anger Management"

Warnings: glowing babies, thievery, fisticuffs, vandalism, child abandonment, and lots of gifs for all my feels.

Sunday, Day 14

"Mortal Kombat"

YomoshotoW01 017

YomoshotoW01 018

Winter has been a rough season for our town doctor Minka Yomoshoto. After breaking up with her true love, and being abandoned by her Baby Daddy for no good reason, Minka went on a rage-filled mission to destroy what she thinks is the source of all her pain -- her stupid ex Kendrick Troubadour and his floozy girlfriend Brodie Mason -- making enemies in the process.

yomoshotow01-019

Minka has a great job, wonderful children, and a stellar reputation in the community, but her latest uncharacteristically grouchy behavior has most of Oceanside scratching their heads. Where has the sweet, shy, friendly woman that they all know and love gone? Does her change in behavior have anything to do with her epic break-up with dancer Diego Bossanova?

yomoshotow01-021

Slowly things are starting to turn around. After making up with Diego and getting back together, Minka feels she can finally let some of her anger go and be more like her old self. All of this fussing and fighting isn't good for the community and it certainly isn't good for her health.

yomoshotow01-030

Today is Hiro's transition day and Minka wants to throw an extravagant birthday party for her baby boy. But first things first, she has to take a sick day at work.

Minka: Ow! I think my stomach is going into cardiac arrest!

Nope. That's not actually possible.

yomoshotow01-031

Minka: Teehee! These suckers are totally falling for it!

yomoshotow01-033

Work is the second most important thing in Minka's life, and she hates to lose a day, but right now her happiness is more important. A birthday party is just what she needs to get her out of this funk.

yomoshotow01-038

Minka doesn't really miss her ex, scientist Achilles Brook, that much. She is grateful, however, that he left her with his first invention. This Smart Milk™ works wonders.

yomoshotow01-041

Minka expects to have the bragging rights of the smartest kids in Oceanside!

yomoshotow01-044

Little Kira Yomoshoto, Minka's oldest, likes the taste of the Smart Milk™ but she's very concerned of it's strange glow.

yomoshotow01-046

bring-you-love

yomoshotow01-049

Minka gets Kira learning right away on the potty before the Smart Milk™ wears off.

yomoshotow01-052

yomoshotow01-053

There you have it! Kira Yomoshoto is now potty trained!

yomoshotow01-060

Minka can't wait to tell her friends!

yomoshotow01-062

Oh look... Cindy Lou Killeen must be sleepwalking again...

yomoshotow01-064

right into people's homes and using their stuff...

tumblr_o1jjzci8pf1ql5yr7o1_500

yomoshotow01-075

yomoshotow01-076

As Minka nurses Hiro and starts prepping for his party...

yomoshotow01-065

yomoshotow01-070

a sinister Brodie Mason nabs Minka's coveted newspaper. JK, Minka doesn't give a damn about the paper. You have at it Brodie!

yomoshotow01-077

yomoshotow01-080

Her alien glow has left her but she's still skillin like a villain.

yomoshotow01-082

Cindy Lou: Since I'm here I'll just help myself to some jello. How did I get here again?

GO HOME CINDY LOU!!!

yomoshotow01-083

Time to get this party started.

yomoshotow01-084

Against her better judgement MInka invites Hiro's father, Achilles. Things between them are strained but she doesn't think it's right to shut Achilles out of Hiro's life altogether.

yomoshotow01-086

yomoshotow01-087
Minka's best friends arrive (and Achilles)...

yomoshotow01-092
and so do their tots!

yomoshotow01-094
Kira unfortunately falls fast asleep as soon as the party starts.

yomoshotow01-097

Gavin Biltmore and Gwyneth Landgraab become besties amongst the leaves.

yomoshotow01-101

The hugglefest begins with siblings Ezra and Heath Biltmore...

yomoshotow01-102

and Kenna and Aiden Biltmore!

yomoshotow01-103

Then Gavin and Gwyneth (yes, I'm already shipping this)...

yomoshotow01-104

and cousins Nico Firestone and Cyan Troubadour-Bossanova.

yomoshotow01-108

When it's cake time, Hiro is so excited to see his dad there. He really missed him :(

yomoshotow01-109

Achilles is grateful to be invited to his son's birthday, but he's more than perturbed that Diego Bossanova is there as well. Hasn't he been humiliated enough then to see that sim next to his son at the cake toss? Achilles should be the one standing next to Minka and Hiro!

yomoshotow01-112

The other red-haired, *secret* baby daddy, architect Fitz Biltmore also scowls a disapproving scowl. Fitz never thought Diego was good enough for Minka. To see them back together really upsets him.

yomoshotow01-110

Diego don't care. He's here for Minka. That's all that matters.

yomoshotow01-114

Minka blows out the candles...

yomoshotow01-119

yomoshotow01-129

and welcomes a new little bald-headed toddler to Oceanside!

yomoshotow01-131

yomoshotow01-134

As soon as Minka turns her back, her "best friend" artist Matisse Troubadour tries to mack to her man! Diego might not be the most loyal boyfriend but he does put a squash on Matisse's advances -- at least in front of everysim else!

yomoshotow01-138

After a quick make-over here is Hiro Yomoshoto! Hiro is a 9-7-6-3-10 Cancer who is really interested in sports and sci-fi. He shares his genius IQ and his love of science from both parents, and his freckles and artistic side from his dad. Minka's straight hair and Achilles' curly hair gives Hiro his wavy and slightly unruly hairstyle.

yomoshotow01-143

As soon as Minka puts him down Hiro heads straight to his dad! Achilles is so proud of how much he's grown. He really misses his boy.

yomoshotow01-144

dawwwwwwwww!!!!!

yomoshotow01-149

While Achilles gets reacquainted with his boy...

yomoshotow01-155

Minka gets reacquainted with her boy... and he says the three little words she had so hoped he would say!

yomoshotow01-161

yomoshotow01-158

While Minka is... distracted, Brodie seizes the opportunity and barges right into the party! She knows that when Minka sees her in her house she's going to lose it. That's just what she's counting on.

yomoshotow01-162

Hiro hurries off to find something to play with...

yomoshotow01-163

so Achilles joins nanny Angie Killeen, Fitz, and Matisse in the hot tub.

yomoshotow01-166

Minka truly loves Diego. Even though she wasn't planning on having more children she's always wanted a child with him and felt jealous that he shares one with Matisse. Maybe today would be her lucky day.

yomoshotow01-167

*NO CHIMES!*

Thank the Lord.

yomoshotow01-168

Oh brother...

yomoshotow01-169

Achilles has had about as much as he can take. He tried to be the bigger sim and not let Minka's relationship with Diego get to him, but when it's right in front of his face... at his son's birthday... in front of everyone!? How could he let this slide?

yomoshotow01-173

Seeing how angry he his, Minka quickly gets out of bed and gets dressed. Achilles lunges at her with all of his frustration and tells her where she can go!

yomoshotow01-175

Minka leaves the room not wanting a full-out fight. But she's pissed...

yomoshotow01-177

It's like yin yang toddlers.

yomoshotow01-178

Matisse catches Diego and gives him a big hug. She didn't know that he and Minka were back together. All she really wants is to see him happy.

yomoshotow01-180

When Minka walks outside and finds Brodie calmly eating turkey on her patio she sees red. Forgetting all about her vow to not get angry and not to fight, Minka pounces on Brodie!

tumblr_ninecxtu211tb8iyko1_500

yomoshotow01-185

yomoshotow01-184

Angie can't watch as her bestie and Brodie duke it out.

yomoshotow01-189

yomoshotow01-192

Vivian Landgraab? Why are you cringing? The fight is nowhere near you.

yomoshotow01-193

I was so caught up in watching Minka and Brodie I didn't realize Achilles attacked Diego!!

yomoshotow01-195

Dancer Diego wipes the floor with poor, weak Achilles.

yomoshotow01-199

Achilles is in a lot of pain -- and not just physically. He finally stood up for himself even if that means getting his butt beat. Fitz is proud of him. yomoshotow01-200

The girls are still at it. Brodie sharpened her claws specifically before coming over.

yomoshotow01-211

Achilles may have just got his ass kicked but he's not backing down. Diego is going to hear what he thinks about him!

Fitz: Yeah, tell him!

yomoshotow01-214

Brodie wins this match.

Brodie: Don't you ever hit my man again, or there's more where that came from!

yomoshotow01-217

Weakly, Minka asks Brodie to leave.

yomoshotow01-219

Thankfully the children were spared of all of the hullabaloo.

yomoshotow01-221

yomoshotow01-222

An embarrassed and ashamed Minka walks over to get a bite to eat when she sees Diego and Achilles at it (again). She had no idea this was going on.

yomoshotow01-223

yomoshotow01-226

Minka wasn't too worried -- she knew her buff Diego could win over scrawny Achilles. She was actually beaming with pride. Diego Bossanova said he loved her. Diego Bossanova was defending her honor. Diego Bossanova was her one true love.

cher-disgusted

yomoshotow01-227

Really??!! Shocking.

yomoshotow01-228

Diego wins again.

yomoshotow01-231

yomoshotow01-233

yomoshotow01-235

yomoshotow01-234

Hiro finds his OTH sorting the blocks.

yomoshotow01-238

yomoshotow01-242

Ready to start Hiro on the Smart Milk™ learning fast track, Minka warms up a bottle...

yomoshotow01-245

However the Smart Milk™ machine appears to be malfunctioning!

yomoshotow01-248

Minka: Huh, it's never glowed red before...

Yeah, I wouldn't give that to my child...

yomoshotow01-252

Brodie returns to steal another newspaper.

yomoshotow01-254

Fran the Fox: *sarcastically* Oooh, you're such a rebel...

yomoshotow01-258

yomoshotow01-263

Poor Hiro!

yomoshotow01-265

Hiro: I hope she didn't see me do that!

yomoshotow01-267

After a long day Minka cleans up...

yomoshotow01-269

and heads to bed.

yomoshotow01-273

Monday, Day 15

"Kingdom Hearts"

yomoshotow01-001

yomoshotow01-002

It doesn't look like she's enjoying earning that skill point.

yomoshotow01-004

Stealing papers is not enough anymore. Brodie has escalated to trash tipping!

yomoshotow01-019

Hiro's genius side tells him that any block will fit in any hole if you make it.

yomoshotow01-025

Maybe not.

yomoshotow01-027

yomoshotow01-029

yomoshotow01-030

yomoshotow01-032

yomoshotow01-033

As Minka begins her day she can't help but think about everything that transpired the previous day.

yomoshotow01-035

She really feels that she and Diego are in a good place -- finally on the same page.

yomoshotow01-038

Maybe now was the time... was he finally ready to commit?

yomoshotow01-044

Minka: Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess that lived in a great big castle...

yomoshotow01-048

Kira: Where's the explosions?

Minka: *thinks* What is this fairy tale garbage I'm reading to my little girl?

yomoshotow01-050

Cindy Lou's not too sure how she got here again...

yomoshotow01-051

but she might as well stick around and watch some telly!

Minka: and then the princess ordered her generals to bomb the evil witch terrorists and then she rode into battle and saved her prince who was being held hostage!

I'm quite sure that is not one of the stories in "The Mysterious Mr. Gnome Book of Fairy Tales!"

yomoshotow01-052

After reading to Kira Minka politely asks Cindy Lou to go home. Minka likes CL and she is pretty worried about her ending up inside different sims' home all of the time. Maybe she should examine her and make sure she doesn't have anything medically wrong with her.

yomoshotow01-054

With today being her day off Minka gets some of the chores done around the house.

yomoshotow01-055

yomoshotow01-057

And Kira's not too far behind.

yomoshotow01-059

Mail carrier Lars Shadow is still freezing to death delivering the mail.

yomoshotow01-063

Minka has come to the decision that Achilles will never set foot in her house again. She knows this will hurt Hiro but she has to think about her safety as well as the safety of her man.

yomoshotow01-066

She hopes one day Hiro will understand.

yomoshotow01-067

yomoshotow01-070

yomoshotow01-073

You cutey-patooty!

yomoshotow01-076

After locking the children in their cribs...

yomoshotow01-079

yomoshotow01-080

Minka sends her measly 10% to the Treasurer.

yomoshotow01-083

yomoshotow01-086

She then calls her man and asks him on a date.

yomoshotow01-094

As Minka gives her man a special kiss hello...

yomoshotow01-100

yomoshotow01-108

both youngsters desperately want out of their cribs!

yomoshotow01-118

They will just have to wait a bit longer...

yomoshotow01-120

Once again Minka tries for a baby with Diego, and once again *No Chimes*

yomoshotow01-126

Minka finally comes to Hiro's and Kira's rescue and Diego tags along. Minka is delighted to see that he's actually interested in her kids, especially since she knows he's not involved in his daughter's life. He would make a great step-father, Minka thinks.

yomoshotow01-131

Back downstairs the couple continue their romantic date with even more romantic slow dancing. As Minka looks into his eyes she knows what would make her life complete would be to have Diego in it all of the time.

yomoshotow01-135

They've been through the good times and the bad. The cheating and lying was now over. They've both dated others and still found their way back to each other. This was meant to be.

yomoshotow01-136

yomoshotow01-137

yomoshotow01-142

She tried to make dinner special but she's a doctor Jim, not a chef!

yomoshotow01-151

Diego doesn't mind the burnt shrimp gumbo. He's happy just to be with Minka.

yomoshotow01-157

Minka didn't really plan this -- it was a spur-of-the-moment decision. She can't bear to be apart from Diego any longer! But what would he say?

yomoshotow01-161

Diego: *GASP*

yomoshotow01-165

Diego wasn't expecting a proposal. Up until yesterday he wasn't too sure how he felt about marriage. He thought he would stay a bachelor until his hair turned gray.

yomoshotow01-168

But how could he say no to that adorable face?

yomoshotow01-171

Or that huge rock!

yomoshotow01-175

*ENGAGED*

yomoshotow01-179

Diego was happy... but was this the right thing to do?

yomoshotow01-185

yomoshotow01-194

As their date officially draws to an end...

yomoshotow01-196

a tired, but happy Minka calls it a night.

yomoshotow01-199

While her fiance wonders if he's making the right decision...

Tuesday, Day 16

"Doom"

yomoshotow01-010

yomoshotow01-012

yomoshotow01-013

yomoshotow01-015

yomoshotow01-016

yomoshotow01-019

Minka needs to hightail it work. She was going to call Angie to babysit but since Diego spent the night in the hot tub she asks him instead. Minka thinks this will be a great opportunity for Diego to get to know the kids better.

yomoshotow01-021

Diego: Sure, Babe. I'll watch the kids. How hard can it be?

tumblr_nzqkkpndzq1ql5yr7o1_500

*Famous last words*...

yomoshotow01-023

yomoshotow01-025

yomoshotow01-026

Hiro: You're not Mommy...

yomoshotow01-027

Turns out Diego's not so bad. He gives Hiro an unnecessary bath...

yomoshotow01-029

cleans the potty chairs...

yomoshotow01-031

puts Hiro to bed...

yomoshotow01-032

and... LEAVES!!!!????

lafayette-quote

yomoshotow01-033

Kira and Hiro are left alone...

yomoshotow01-037

yomoshotow01-039

Thank goodness he's back!

yomoshotow01-040

Diego went on a walk while the kidlets were sleeping and brought back a dozen roses for his beloved fiance... and then LEAVES AGAIN!!!

yomoshotow01-042

OMG I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR A CHANCE CARD! THE BABIES ARE ALONE!!!

OK, Minka is a horrible cook so she decides to serve the salad.

yomoshotow01-043

tumblr_nob816xbq31ql5yr7o1_500

yomoshotow01-046

Oh shit.

yomoshotow01-048

yomoshotow01-051

Not the babies...

yomoshotow01-055

tumblr_m20w18svla1ql5yr7o1_400

yomoshotow01-061

yomoshotow01-062

Minka returns to an eerily silent house.

yomoshotow01-065

She was notified at the hospital that Kira and Hiro were taken away for child neglect. In a panic, Minka calls the one sim who can help her.

yomoshotow01-066

Felicity Wayward, the Social Worker.

yomoshotow01-068

Felicity tells Minka that Kira and Hiro are in her care and both of them are doing well. She lets Minka know that the only way to get her children back is to learn Parenting and pay fees to the orphanage for having to care for her kids. After doing that, and undergoing an evaluation to determine if she is a fit and responsible parent, she can have them back.

yomoshotow01-072

Minka is in a panic. She doesn't really blame Diego -- he's never watched children before. He didn't know you aren't supposed to leave them by themselves, even for just a few hours. But can she trust him to be alone with her kids again?

yomoshotow01-079

Minka gets to work studying, thinking of her babies the whole time.

yomoshotow01-084

yomoshotow01-086

yomoshotow01-088

She did it!

yomoshotow01-089

Now she has to wait a whole season before she can see them again.

yomoshotow01-091

How can she last that long without them?

yomoshotow01-094

It's not Diego's fault, Minka tells herself. After they're married she knows he won't do anything stupid like this again.

yomoshotow01-096

At least, she hopes not.

Next Time on The Oceanside Project: The Wedding Special!

Notes

  • So, yeah... I have Squinge's Watch Kids Enabled mod which actually does work. However (after testing in my Test Hood) I realized that I needed it to load last. It's working fine now. Hopefully no one else gets their kids taken away! *crosses fingers*
  • Since Kira and Hiro are in the custody of Felicity and the orphanage they will stay there one round. Minka will not be able to get her kids back until the last day of her round. (That is unless someone else adopts them first...)
  • The game generated a random NPC to be the Social Worker but now that she's created I turned her into a clone of Felicity. The next time we see the SW she will look correct.
  • Minka kept autonomously Trying For Baby with Diego! I was getting so angry. But I guess she wants his kid...>.> Just like with Kendrick, I'm not sure why she's not getting pregnant with Diego. Maybe it's fate.
  • I really wasn't going to have Minka propose but Diego got the fear so I had to do it. Muhahahaha! But then the joke was on me because by the time she proposed the fear was gone :(

Thank you for reading!!! ^.^
