The Oceanside Project: Wayward  

WaywardW01-Title

"Great Expectations"

Warnings: orphans, levitating toddlers, fist fights, stinkiness, whining, cat art, and an attempt at a toddler challenge.
 

WaywardW01 003

On a frosty winter day a spaceship hurdled down crashing into Hope Rock on the island of Oceanside. Inside eight orphaned toddlers and their guardian emerged miraculously unscathed except for their missing memories. These nine brave souls, refugees from the Supernatural Wars of SimCity, make up the Second Pilgrimage.

Sunday, Day 14
"A Bad Beginning"

WaywardW01 005

WaywardW01 047

After the crash social worker Felicity Wayward and her wards make their way to their new residence, The Wayward Home For Forgotten Children. Back in SimCity Felicity rescued and housed human children whose parents were casualties of the war. Felicity and the toddlers narrowly escaped a zombie invasion intent on destroying their hideout in Riverblossom Hills.

Even though her memories were lost from the crash, Felicity is more than grateful to be in this strange land of fresh air and green grass and thankful that the children will never know the terror of the War.

WaywardW01 048

Speaking of the children -- let's meet them. Elise Welchington is an 8-0-8-1-8 Virgo interested in crime, food, and travel. She is unlucky and brooding but you would never know it by that cute, dimpled smile. Elise's parents perished during the Great Werewolf Attacks of Moonlight Falls.

WaywardW01 051

Jacoby Bond is a 9-1-9-5-1 Virgo interested in animals and the paranormal. Jacoby loves the heat and is frugal -- which is odd for a toddler. Jacoby's family was lost during the witch addled Mummy Strut through Strangetown.

WaywardW01 052

Violet Darkbloom is a 4-5-4-7-5 Aquarius interested in Sci-Fi and the paranormal. She's a natural cook and has commitment issues. Violet's parents turned into vampires to escape certain death. They tried to turn Violet also, but she didn't want to commit.

WaywardW01 053

Jude Corduroy is a 2-6-4-8-5 Aquarius interested in animals and Sci-Fi. He's charismatic and a natural born performer. Jude lost his parents, famous theater actors from Belladonna Cove, when they were scared to death by drowned ghosts during a production of the thriller, "Pool Without A Ladder."

WaywardW01 054

Riley Fairweather is a 5-3-10-1-6 Pisces interested in Sci-Fi. She loves cars and she loves to swim. Riley lost her family during the Great Mob War of the Montys and the Capps.

WaywardW01 055

Liam Sidebottom is a 6-4-5-6-4 Taurus interested in travel and entertainment. He is inappropriate and excitable. Liam lost his family when rioting mermaids flooded his hometown of Bluewater Village.

WaywardW01 062

Micah Mippolati, heir of the famous Singing Mippolatis, is a 3-1-8-10-3 Sagittarius interested in sports and entertainment. He is athletic and lucky. Micah's parents starved themselves to death after the witches replaced the entire SimCity Orchestra with Servos.

WaywardW01 064

Butterfly Whitefeather is an 8-4-3-5-5 Capricorn interested in toys and entertainment. She's ambitious and family-oriented. Unfortunately Butterfly's parents were trampled to death when the Bigfoot population raided the Fairy Forest during a family vacation in Three Lakes.

WaywardW01 063

Felicity is a 3-5-3-6-8 Family/Popularity Aquarius interested in sports and the paranormal. Felicity likes sweet-smelling but dirty brunettes and science! She's excitable, nurturing, childish, socially awkward and has quite a few allergies.

WaywardW01 067

While the children investigate their new digs...

WaywardW01 070

Felicity gets cracking on the Parenting books left to her by architect Fitz Biltmore.

WaywardW01 071

Micah and Butterfly, who look like twins in their matching outfits, are excited to be the first to use the activity table.

WaywardW01 076

Felicity: *reading* "... Like babies, toddlers can be removed by a social worker if certain motives are allowed to drop critically low, or if they become too hot or too cold." Wait, I have to remove children from their home if their parents can't take of them? Where would I put them? There's no room here!
Don't worry about that, Felicity. All of the parents in Oceanside are extremely attentive to their children. You won't have to remove any of them from their homes.

tumblr_mmwoxcm3fj1ql5yr7o1_500

WaywardW01 079

Newsie Calvin O'Gill stops by to deliver the paper.
Calvin: I'm an orphan, can I move in? Please?
Sorry dude, no vacancies for teens.

WaywardW01 084

WaywardW01 086

Elise joins the overalls twins and discovers her true passion.

WaywardW01 088

Jacoby gives love to Paddy McPatches -- the homes' teddy bear.

WaywardW01 094

Felicity takes a break from studying to greet Sister Becca Goodacre -- Oceanside's Peteran Priest. Felicity's main goal, besides taking care of her wards, is to find them good, loving homes. A Priest's home would be excellent placement.

WaywardW01 096

Always vetting for suitable prospective parents, Felicity asks Becca her feelings on Oceanside's criminal system and it's laws for punishment.

WaywardW01 099

Sister Becca believes that sims shouldn't punish other sims for their wrong-doings. That should be left to the Watcher.

WaywardW01 100

Felicity hopes the crazy priest never tries to adopt one of her kids.

WaywardW01 102

Interrupting their conversation to meet the lovely new resident is musician Kendrick Troubadour.

WaywardW01 111

Inside Liam, Riley, and Jude rock out to the salsa station.

WaywardW01 109

Just when Felicity starts to ask Kendrick uncomfortable, personal questions in the hope he will adopt a child...

WaywardW01 112

the Oceanside Welcome Wagon shows up to meet the new social worker and her kids.

WaywardW01 114

Doctor-in-training Minka Yomoshoto, however, has a problem with one of the orphanage's visitors and gives him a piece of her mind.

WaywardW01 115

Kendrick is sick of Minka acting like she's better than everyone else. She's become more confrontational every time he sees her. This needs to stop.

WaywardW01 118

Felicity is super excited to meet the man who brought her here, politician Malcolm Landgraab X. She can't wait until City Hall is built. She's already picked out which cat posters would look great in her office! Unfortunately Malcolm disagrees that City Hall is a place for cat posters.

WaywardW01 127

Cadet Sadie Biltmore decides to test out the tire swing -- just to make sure it's safe for the kidlets. ;)

WaywardW01 128

Malcolm makes Felicity aware of the dangerous, gun-toting cat burglar that is terrorizing the island. Felicity is starting to feel like Oceanside isn't the safest place to be...

WaywardW01 134

Minka's and Kendrick's poke-fest become a slap-fest. Minka is angry at everyone -- Kendrick for cheating on her, Diego for cheating on her, and herself for fighting with Diego. She's finally going to take that anger out on the one that started it all.

WaywardW01 137

tumblr_mr9vmeWvHX1qzdfclo1_500

WaywardW01 139

Next on Felicity's get-to-know list is Treasurer Vivian Landgraab. Viv is in charge of paying Felicity's salary so she better kiss up to her!

WaywardW01 148

As Kendrick tries to walk away from a full-blown fight with Minka, Becca tries to diffuse the situation with an uplifting verse from The Word of The Watcher.

WaywardW01 149

Minka didn't like Becca before and she definitely doesn't like her now that she's all preachy!

WaywardW01 153

Malcolm meets Riley!

WaywardW01 154

Dawwwwww!

WaywardW01 156

Becca schmoozes teacher Selena Firestone -- always on the lookout for more parishioners for her church.

WaywardW01 158

Minka follows Kendrick inside. More poking occurs.

tumblr_nn2yqqP0oe1ql5yr7o1_500

WaywardW01 161

Micah and Jude huggle. ^.^

WaywardW01 163

Felicity heads inside to make lunch for the Welcome Wagon. She hopes the sweet smell of bologna sandwiches can break up the poke-and-slap-a-polooza happening in her living room.

WaywardW01 166

Surprisingly Malcolm is always thinking of having another child. Since Viv has already stated she will never get pregnant again, maybe they could adopt an orphan?

WaywardW01 173

Kendrick, at his wit's end with the shoving and slapping, slaps Minka back!

WaywardW01 176

WaywardW01 177

Felicity: OK fight club, let's break it up. Yummy lunch meat sandwiches! Come and get 'em!
Felicity always has a happy disposition.

WaywardW01 183

Kendrick, again, tries to walk away from Minka when...
Minka: Go ahead and run you little baby! You want one of these bottles, baby boy? You need your diaper changed? Going to go cry to your Mommy?
Kendrick: Oh. Hell. No...
Oh dear.

WaywardW01 188

WaywardW01 191

WaywardW01 195

WaywardW01 196

Felicity: NO, DON'T HURT HIS PRETTY FACE!!!

WaywardW01 198

Sadie! You're a police officer! Do something!
Sadie: Minka Yomoshoto is getting her ass kicked, you say? Well, technically I'm not an officer yet. Best let these two work out their differences on their own...
SADIE!!!!!!

WaywardW01 200

WaywardW01 203

Um Sadie, I don't think Minka is losing...

WaywardW01 207

Right now Sadie could care less about Minka and Kendrick's fight. She's being serenaded by her man!

WaywardW01 209

Luckily the toddlers start heading to their beds, missing all of the drama.

WaywardW01 217

All except one.
Elise: Kick his ass, Lady!!!

WaywardW01 216

Poor Felicity doesn't know what to do! How can two adult sims carry on this way in front of the children?

WaywardW01 223

Sadie walks right by the cloud of fists!
Sadie: I don't think I should get involved...

WaywardW01 232

Fitz congratulates Becca on receiving her priesthood. He lets her know that his family will be there for her first sermon.
Sadie: Wait, what now?

WaywardW01 237

WaywardW01 238

Liam loves the castle.

WaywardW01 240

WILL THIS EVER END!!!???

WaywardW01 243

Mama said knock you out!

WaywardW01 246

Minka is racking up the enemies.

WaywardW01 252

And then when I went to check their furious status... this is what I see! What the hell, Minka!! You want him back after you kicked his ass?

tumblr_inline_mfuqkvtdNY1rbf627

WaywardW01 256

Becca's not sure if she should be dancing after the fight -- but she does anyway.

WaywardW01 262

Selena, Kendrick, and Vivian eat in silence after his humiliating defeat. Kendrick hopes word of his loss doesn't get to his girlfriend Brodie Mason. She won't take the news well.

WaywardW01 263

Outside Felicity greets Becca's husband Owen Goodacre...

WaywardW01 265

and Kendrick's sister Matisse Troubadour.

WaywardW01 270

I don't know if Kendrick has a death wish or if he really thinks he can go another round with Minka!

WaywardW01 275

Making out with your husband won't distract them from fighting again!

WaywardW01 278

Before things get too heated again Felicity asks Kendrick to leave.

WaywardW01 279

WaywardW01 280

WaywardW01 283

All is peaceful again as night falls on the orphanage.

WaywardW01 285

WaywardW01 289

Felicity takes care of the kidlets...

WaywardW01 291

while Minka continues to scowl and hate life.

WaywardW01 295

It's late and Felicity has a lot of work to do, so she says goodnight to the Welcome Wagon.

WaywardW01 299

WaywardW01 301

Liam wonders why no one is taking him home with them.

WaywardW01 302

WaywardW01 306

Dance party time with Jude, Liam, and Violet.

WaywardW01 308

WaywardW01 310

Jacoby draws a mini masterpiece.

WaywardW01 309

Felicity does a steady stream of diaper changes...

WaywardW01 312

takes a bath...

WaywardW01 323

and hits the hay.

WaywardW01 317

WaywardW01 318

WaywardW01 324

What an eventful first day!

Monday, Day 15
"Everyone Poops"

WaywardW01 001

WaywardW01 002

WaywardW01 006

Most of the kids are up and moving before their poor, tired guardian awakens.

WaywardW01 007

I see Kendrick made a lasting impression...

WaywardW01 010

No time for sexy Kendrick Troubadour dreams, Missy. There's stinky children to change.

WaywardW01 012

WaywardW01 013

WaywardW01 014

WaywardW01 016

WaywardW01 019

WaywardW01 020

Jacoby takes out all of his aggression on Paddy McPatches.

WaywardW01 021

Felicity's morning is an endless loop of changing diapers and being grossed out by them.

WaywardW01 027

WaywardW01 032

A quick breakfast of cereal hits the spot.

WaywardW01 033

WaywardW01 038

WaywardW01 040

Elise levitates while shy dancing! Could she be a witch?

WaywardW01 042

WaywardW01 043

Outside Felicity introduces herself to restaurant owner George Lambswool...

WaywardW01 045

and mailman Lars Shadow.

WaywardW01 044

Nannies Angie and Cindy Lou Killeen also stop by the orphanage. The ladies are interested in starting a family of their own and they're hoping they can find the right child to add to it.

WaywardW01 049

While speaking with Malcolm, Felicity learned that it was Angie's idea to appoint a social worker for the community. She's truly grateful to Angie for all that she's done. Felicity suggests that maybe Angie should run for public office.

WaywardW01 051

Angie, however, believes her talents are best left where they are -- educating the toddlers of Oceanside at her day care.

WaywardW01 053

Also stopping by is floozy -- I mean Garden Club member -- Marilla Robbins.

WaywardW01 061

Felicity returns talking to the prospective parents and finds that she and Cindy Lou like a lot of the same things -- including side braids. Felicity hopes they can become fast friends.

WaywardW01 063

George: If it's Winter, why isn't there any snow?
OMG George, you can't just ask Winter why it doesn't have any snow!

WaywardW01 064

Elise, Butterfly, and Riley hang out waiting for someone to notice them.

WaywardW01 066

He's taken, Felicity!

WaywardW01 068

Felicity makes lunch while -- she hopes -- her guests are mingling with the children...

WaywardW01 070

WaywardW01 072

WaywardW01 075

but... nope.

WaywardW01 076

WaywardW01 078

Butterfly might be my favorite. Not even going to apologize.

WaywardW01 080

WaywardW01 081

WaywardW01 082

Marilla: So then Yasmin and I totally made out in the hot tub while her girlfriend was sleeping!
Marilla! You're not supposed to go around telling everyone!

WaywardW01 084

Marilla: My bad! Tee Hee!
I so hate you.

WaywardW01 086

Poor Liam wants Felicity to read him a story but her fun is so low she doesn't even want to look at a book.

WaywardW01 087

Angie suggests that she and Cindy Lou help out at the orphanage. That way they will be able to give Felicity a bit of a break and they could meet all of the toddlers and find one to adopt. Cindy Lou loves the idea!

WaywardW01 089

Felicity actually catches one of the toddlers before they pooped their pants!

WaywardW01 090

Jacoby doesn't seem to be a fan of the potty. :(

WaywardW01 092

Neither does Felicity.

WaywardW01 095

Minka shows up to apologize to Felicity about her rotten behavior last night. She didn't mean to have a fist fight in front of all of the kids. There's just something about Kendrick Troubadour that drives her to murder!

WaywardW01 100

Felicity invites her back in but she's going to make sure she is never in the same room with those two again.

WaywardW01 099

George is a dancing machine!

WaywardW01 107

WaywardW01 111

No! Don't greet Diego Bossanova! That's the other guy Minka's fighting with!

WaywardW01 113

Felicity barely knows Minka but she's already sticking up for her.
Felicity: You can come in but if you start poking Minka -- or any other sim for that matter -- I'll toss your keister on the pavement!

WaywardW01 115

WaywardW01 118

Elise wants to be read to...

WaywardW01 119

but first Felicity has to greet natural scientist Yasmin Onnen.

WaywardW01 122

Yasmin: Hey Ang, CL! OoooK... you're making out... I'll just... dance or something.

WaywardW01 124

Oh honey, don't dance.

WaywardW01 125

WaywardW01 127

With Minka inside Diego decides to hang outside at the swing instead.

WaywardW01 129

WaywardW01 131

WaywardW01 132

Oh Yaz, even your jump off doesn't want to hit it anymore!

WaywardW01 133

WaywardW01 134

WaywardW01 136

Apparently Elise is also part dog.

WaywardW01 137

WaywardW01 141

MinkaDNA

WaywardW01 143

Cindy Lou and Angie are wondering if they should change their minds about adopting these foul-smelling creatures.

WaywardW01 144

But they're so cute!

WaywardW01 145

Angie tells BFF Minka that she and Cindy Lou are planning on adopting one of the orphans. Minka is so happy for them. She admires them taking on an unknown child with unknown habits and temperament.

WaywardW01 150

OK WE GET IT!!!

WaywardW01 153

With that Felicity says good night to her guests.

WaywardW01 154

Cindy Lou says a special goodnight to Elise. Has she already picked a favorite?

WaywardW01 155

WaywardW01 156

Now that the guests are gone it's back to diaper duty for Felicity.

WaywardW01 157

WaywardW01 166

The art wall is growing!

WaywardW01 162

Then it's bedtime for all of the little Waywards.

WaywardW01 167

WaywardW01 168

WaywardW01 170

Tuesday, Day 16
"Hard Choices"

WaywardW01 001

WaywardW01 004

WaywardW01 005

The toddlers are ready to start their day.

WaywardW01 006

Their guardian, however, is not.

WaywardW01 008

WaywardW01 010

First up for potty training is Miss Violet.

WaywardW01 017

WaywardW01 022

WaywardW01 023

WaywardW01 024

WaywardW01 037

WaywardW01 042

Jacoby has hover power too! Are there two witches in Oceanside?

WaywardW01 046

As the sun comes up Felicity tries to sneak in a couple of hours of sleep.

WaywardW01 048

Liam and Butterfly follow her everywhere she goes.

WaywardW01 050

Violet does a little victory dance after completing her first art project.

WaywardW01 061

CL stops by to help out for the day. Hopefully she'll find the right child to adopt into their home.

WaywardW01 063

Culinary expert Paragon Barrett walks by and Felicity stops him to say hello.

WaywardW01 067

When asked what he does, Felicity was very happy to learn that Paragon has a bakery opening this Winter. Felicity loves cakes!

WaywardW01 069

Cindy Lou introduces herself to all of the orphans.

WaywardW01 072

And traumatizes each one with that facial expression!

WaywardW01 073

Felicity and Paragon get along rather well but she's not really interested in the Draco Malfoy look.

WaywardW01 082

I love shy dancing so much! ^.^

WaywardW01 086

Felicity tries a new recipe given to her from Paragon for shrimp gumbo.

WaywardW01 090

WaywardW01 088

Elise is CL's next victim...

WaywardW01 091

while Paragon swings on the tire.

WaywardW01 100

WaywardW01 101

CL gives potty training a try with Micah.

WaywardW01 105

WaywardW01 108

No one wants a mom that looks like she's going to eat them!

WaywardW01 111

WaywardW01 113

Jacoby: Miss Felicity, please save me from this scary woman!

WaywardW01 116

WaywardW01 124

Also stopping by is scientist Achilles Brook. Even though they both enjoy the marvels of science Felicity isn't interested in him romantically either. She seems to only like the married men. :(

WaywardW01 128

CL spends some time with Butterfly changing diapers and carrying her around.

WaywardW01 130

Riley is a smart one. She knows to go right up to the adults and ask for attention. She's going to be adopted by someone, damn it.

WaywardW01 133

WaywardW01 136

After harassing Paragon, Riley crawls right up to Cindy Lou demanding a story.

WaywardW01 141

WaywardW01 144

Achilles, unfortunately, finds the stereo and starts moving... strangely.

WaywardW01 145

Someone else wants a story.

WaywardW01 148

Cindy Lou does not approve of mucus flicking while a reading of Denim Coveralls is in progress!

WaywardW01 150

WaywardW01 154

A beat Felicity says goodnight to her guests...

WaywardW01 155

and goes to bed.

WaywardW01 156

WaywardW01 159

While the others sleep...

WaywardW01 169

Jude is up and playing his little heart out.

WaywardW01 171

Here comes the stinky little boy committee.

WaywardW01 172

WaywardW01 174

WaywardW01 178

WaywardW01 180

You knew the job was dangerous when you took it.

Wednesday, Day 17
"Total Chaos"

WaywardW01 001

WaywardW01 003

Poor Felicity has to eat her leftovers amongst the flies and spoiled dinner.

WaywardW01 004

WaywardW01 005

WaywardW01 007

WaywardW01 009

WaywardW01 012

WaywardW01 014

WaywardW01 015

Elise makes sure the remaining sleeping toddlers are aware of her strife!

WaywardW01 016

WaywardW01 018

Elise: Wake up and change me, woman!!!

WaywardW01 020

WaywardW01 021

WaywardW01 022

WaywardW01 023

She doesn't have time to read the paper! She has to take care of eight babies!!

WaywardW01 025

WaywardW01 027

Micah seems to be the lucky one that gets potty trained the most.

WaywardW01 028

Violet and her cute dancing!! ^.^

WaywardW01 029

WaywardW01 030

While Felicity takes a bath...

WaywardW01 031

Angie stops by to meet the orphans and help out for the day.

WaywardW01 037

Felicity isn't much of a coffee drinker but she needs something to keep her awake. Maybe a little hot cocoa will hit the spot.

WaywardW01 039

Felicity loves taking care of the children but sometimes she needs a break. All of the stinky diapers and screaming, demanding toddlers are driving her bonkers!

WaywardW01 041

WaywardW01 043

WaywardW01 044

She's thankful Angie is here. She can sit down and relax for a sec.

WaywardW01 045

WaywardW01 046

After meeting all of the toddlers...

WaywardW01 050

Angie potty trains Butterfly...

WaywardW01 058

and teaches Jacoby about the different branches of government... through the orange dragon.

WaywardW01 062

WaywardW01 063

Ang is pretty sure she knows which kid she and Cindy Lou should adopt. She's excited with the thought of raising a child of her own!

WaywardW01 068

More potty training -- this time it's Liam's turn.

WaywardW01 070

Felicity just isn't her joyful, bouncy self today.

WaywardW01 073

But a hug from Jacoby makes it all better!

WaywardW01 074

*Best Friends*

WaywardW01 080

Angie has a rousing game of peek-a-boo with little Miss Butterfly.

WaywardW01 091

Felicity finally gets a chance to sit down and watch a movie. She approves of Angie and Butterfly together and thinks both her and Cindy Lou will make great parents to one of her kids.

WaywardW01 096

WaywardW01 100

WaywardW01 104

After Angie leaves Felicity takes a nap. She's so happy that one of her kids will find a good home but it's also bittersweet knowing that she will lose one of them.

WaywardW01 105

Who...

WaywardW01 106

will...

WaywardW01 112

it...

WaywardW01 033

be?
Elise: Hello? I'm locked out again. Anyone...?

WaywardW01 128

Notes: I tried to have Felicity greet everyone that walked by so I could get an idea if anyone wanted to adopt a toddler. Angie and Cindy Lou were givens because they are always thinking of having a baby. I had them come back alone so they would focus on hanging out with the kids instead of making googly eyes at each other. ;)

Credits: Most of the toddlers come from my old, dead hood, Santo Bellagio where I mixed a lot of pre-mades together to get their off-spring.

Felicity is Pet Stories Amaya Flores fixed by me to have an elder state. (None of the Pet Stories pre-mades have an elder state. If aged up they would have the default Face 2.)

Felicity's Parenting book passages come from The Sims Wiki.

Thank you for reading!!! ^.^

Awww such a cute little house and orphans. Your neighborhood is very pretty, btw. I did the sextuplets challenge once with the teen as caretaker. wooo! It's a hard one. The house looked like a little orphan factory. Anywho a tip if you haven't noticed already once the tots are on the potty but before the adult stands you cancel the potty training on the adult end and the sim will just walk away to do other stuff while the toddler finishes up on the potty. Very helpful when there are eight of the little monsters needing attention. Also don't know how many hacked items you're willing to use but Becca at affinity sims has an endless baby bottle out there somewhere. It never rots, and never empties and even with that little bit of help this challenge is still a tough one.

question how are you gonna determine when the sims can adopt one of the orphans?
Darkest Dawn[personal profile] darkestdawn on July 20th, 2015 05:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! ^.^
I love toddlers but I was really having a struggle with this! Poor Felicity wasn't getting any sleep.

I did not know about cancelling the potty training action while the kid is already on it! Thank you! I will definitely try that out. I would love to get a potty that automatically cleans itself but that would be too cheaty, lol.

I already use the bottomless bottles. That's the one thing that I have to have on all of the lots. Getting bottles is such a pain!!!

Basically if the sims keep having "wanting to adopt thoughts" or they roll the want I will let them adopt an orphan. If they already have a bunch of kids (like the Biltmores) they can't adopt but Malcolm has 3 and wants more so maybe... Oh and they have to be able to pay the adoption fees. :)
