The Oceanside Project: Yomoshoto  


"There's Something About Minka"

Warnings: theft, electrocutions, a mini-bachlorette challenge, Adult/Teen romance, and a rager.

Previously on The Oceanside Project: Yomoshoto...

Saturday, Day Six

Yomoshoto 003

Minka Yomoshoto, resident science maniac and promising doctor, is recovering from her double mental breakdown quite well!

Yomoshoto 008

Yomoshoto 010

Kendrick Troubadour, Minka's estranged ex, fiendishly steals Minka's newspaper in the wee hours of the morning. Super mature. That will show her... >.>

Yomoshoto 011

After assisting in three births Minka finally gets a job in the Medicine career!

Yomoshoto 012

...but she can't really DO her job yet since she's super pregnant.

Yomoshoto 018

Oblivious to the newspaper thievery going on downstairs, Minka heads upstairs to examine scientific stuff under her microscope.

Yomoshoto 019

Yomoshoto 027

Oh, look who's back to steal more newspapers. Really. Get a hobby dude.

Yomoshoto 031

Yomoshoto 028

It's time for Minka's baby shower! Minka invites over her best gal-pals for a fun-filled afternoon.

Yomoshoto 038

Yomoshoto 040

Minka is ashamed that, with all of her scientific knowledge, she still can't make decent hot dogs.

Yomoshoto 047

Dawn: Do you know my ass is pregnant again? Matisse, you have to give me your soda in the woohoo recipe, cause mine isn't working!
Vivian and Selena: Ewwwwww!

Yomoshoto 048

While Matisse is dining outside, Minka tells the other girls that she thinks Matisse's brother Kendrick is stealing her newspapers. Dawn suggests that maybe Minka and Kendrick need to sit down and talk about everything that's happened between them. Maybe they can come to some sort of resolution.

Yomoshoto 062

Oh, I see a session of the Mean Girls Club is starting...
Vivian: Dawn, you're never going to believe it...

Yomoshoto 063

Vivian: You know my husband, Malcolm...

Yomoshoto 064

Vivian: ...totally got fired on his first day!
Matisse: Tee hee! That shit was funny!
*rolls eyes*

Yomoshoto 066

Selena! How many times do I have to tell you not to go in the hot tub when it's raining!

Yomoshoto 070

Selena smiles through the pain and leaves the party early.

Immediately after that...

Yomoshoto 075


Yomoshoto 079

Dawn Lambswool is dumb enough to stay in the electro-shock hot tub even after her two friends are fried.

Yomoshoto 081

Matisse feels really bad for all of Kendrick's bad behavior. She tells Minka that later on tonight she has a surprise for her.
Matisse: Be well-rested and look hot!

Yomoshoto 084

Instead of frying Dawn in the hot tub, the lightning hits the porch and sets the house on fire!

Yomoshoto 085

Um, Minka, all of your guests are getting scared away.

Yomoshoto 087

Well, as long as they had a GOOD TIME!

Yomoshoto 088


Yomoshoto 092

Minka has no idea what Matisse has in store for her but she trusts her bestie and takes a quick nap.

Yomoshoto 093

Gee thanks Kendrick. Now we don't have to recycle all of those newspapers. Idgit.

Yomoshoto 095

Minka wakes up to a *pop* (#2) and a lot of noise on her front lawn.

Yomoshoto 096

Matisse invited all of the eligible bachelors on the island to Minka's house!
*Note she did not invite Diego because -- reasons -- nor Abbot because Abbot likes men*

Yomoshoto 097

Shy little Minka is unsure of what to do. However she gets dressed and heads out to talk to all of the men at her house.

Yomoshoto 099

Bachelor #1 is Lars Shadow, Oceanside's Postal Carrier. He enjoys overly perfumed Elders that lack creativity.

Yomoshoto 100

Vivian happened to walk by (not checking in on Minka at all...) and is accosted by reviewer Beckett Graham.
Beckett: I haven't been to your bank yet but I'm sure to give it a poor rating!

Yomoshoto 104

Vivian: You give my bank a poor rating today and you won't have a job tomorrow. Do you know who I am? I am Vivian Moneywell Landgraab and I own you!

Yomoshoto 103

Beckett: *gasp*
Dude, don't mess with Wendy Testaburger.

Yomoshoto 105

Meanwhile, back to Minka and Bachelor #1. Lars explains to Minka that the use of soda in the woohoo before woohoo would have prevented whatever is going on in her belly right now.

Yomoshoto 107

Yeah, let's move on to the other Bachelors, shall we?

But first why don't you scope the area and see who's looking good tonight?

Yomoshoto 109

B-But you're NEGATIVE with him!

Yomoshoto 110

Oh Minka. You always seem to want the guys that don't care about you :(

Yomoshoto 112

Moving on to Bachelor #2: Rocky Kotsomiti, Garden Club founder. Rocky enjoys logical gals in their chonies. No four-eyes need apply.

Yomoshoto 113

They have an OK conversation but I don't think Minka can get past the greasy hair.

Yomoshoto 117

Yes, we gathered that from the last time you scoped the room Minka...

Yomoshoto 118

Bachelor #3 is Achilles Brook, Science Guy (tm). Achilles loves science and so does Minka! Achilles likes creative blondes with an aversion to swimwear.

Yomoshoto 123

Minka's first conversation with Achilles goes rather well. And they even share a bolt!

Yomoshoto 126

Next is Bachelor #4: Paragon Barrett the Culinary Guy (no tm). Paragon likes sweet-smelling, jewelry wearing ladies that have jobs. Minka and Paragon can't even carry-on a decent conversation. Next!

Yomoshoto 130

Bachelor #5... aw f*ck it. He's a dick.

Yomoshoto 133

Minka returns to Achilles who she is super excited to be able to talk science to!

Yomoshoto 135

Out of the 5 guys only 2 of them are worthy of bolts and only one of the two likes the same things Minka likes.

Yomoshoto 138

Achilles Brook seems to be the winner tonight folks!

Yomoshoto 145


Yomoshoto 151

Minka bids the boys adieu.

Yomoshoto 153

She has a lot to think about. Better get a good night's sleep.

Sunday, Day Seven

Yomoshoto 009

Yomoshoto 006

Yomoshoto 015

Angie Killeen, the Nanny, calls to check up on Minka. Angie was there during Minka's breakdown and has been terribly worried about her. After the call Minka gained another friend.

Yomoshoto 018

But Minka's not OK. She's still upset about Kendrick and Brodie woohooing right in front of her at her best friend's baby's birthday party. Matisse is right. Minka needs to find a new man that won't cheat on her and treats her right.
*cough* Minka is totally ignoring the fact that she cheated on Kendrick first *cough*

Yomoshoto 019

Minka calls Achilles to see if he wants to hang out for a while.

Yomoshoto 020

Ugh. That's what happens when you live in a cave without electricity and running water.

Yomoshoto 022

Miraculously Achilles just happens to be passing by Minka's house!
*I totes teleported him over*

Yomoshoto 031

A little shy flirting gets Achilles all hot and bothered!

Yomoshoto 032

So I took a peek at Achilles' ACR settings. He likes Minka!

Yomoshoto 034

Minka heads inside to make lunch meat sandwiches for herself and her "date".

Yomoshoto 041

Minka always breaks out the logic ball when she's nervous. It didn't faze Achilles though!

Yomoshoto 044

Minka is starting to really like Achilles. He's good-looking and intelligent. Kendrick and Diego are both good-looking but intelligent....? He reminds Minka of Fitz, if Fitz had confidence.

Yomoshoto 047

Minka is fading fast so she says goodbye to Achilles (and she gets to see him in his swimwear!) ...

Yomoshoto 051

and heads in for a nap.

Later that night...

Yomoshoto 053

Minka's contractions wake her right up. Being a doctor, Minka knows the time is near.

Yomoshoto 055

She's assisted in three deliveries before and always thought the girls where just being wussy babies about the pain. But dang, this hurts!

Yomoshoto 060

It's a girl! ^.^

Yomoshoto 068

Yomoshoto 070

Kira Yomoshoto has black hair, light skin and dark brown eyes just like her mother. It's a good thing too. No one will ever know who her real father is! She can say it's anybody!

Yomoshoto 072

Minka is frightened of this new little person she's in charge of taking care of. How will she be the perfect mom? How will she be able to raise Kira all by herself?

Yomoshoto 074

Minka: It's just you and me Kira. I guess we have to raise each other.

Yomoshoto 082

Minka hangs a poster of the Simlish alphabet over Kira's crib. Education starts at day one in the Yomoshoto household.

Yomoshoto 083

Angie calls to once again check in on Minka. Minka lets her know that she just had the baby and that herself and Kira are doing fine.

Yomoshoto 090

But is she really "doing fine"?

Monday, Day Eight

Yomoshoto 001

Yomoshoto 003

Minka awakens to Kira's cries. Is this what she signed up for?

Yomoshoto 006

Minka: OK Kira. You smell really bad. Should I change your diaper or what?
Oh Minka. Stop. You're the smart one, remember?

Yomoshoto 010

After successfully changing her first diaper, Minka sits down to pay her taxes.

Yomoshoto 011

Yomoshoto 014

Like every other mom in Oceanside, Minka received a bouncy jumpy for her baby shower. Minka sets her baby girl down in it for the first time...

Yomoshoto 015

So she can change into a new outfit. Minka thinks since she's a mom and a doctor now she shouldn't be dressing like a school girl.

Yomoshoto 018

Achilles happened to be in the neighborhood and comes right on in. Minka asks if he would like to go on a "date" with her. In the living room, of course. Because she can't let Kira out of her sight.

Yomoshoto 021

Achilles is down for at-home date time! He'll do anything to spend more time with Minka.

Yomoshoto 025

Yomoshoto 026

Angie stops by and sees Minka and Achilles dancing together. It's not at all what she expected. I think Angie was hoping she and Minka could be more than friends. :(

Yomoshoto 028

Yomoshoto 029

Minka's starting to feel a little bit better. Achilles is a nice, decent guy. Maybe he could be the one?

Yomoshoto 032

And he has morals! Minka tried to cop a little feel and Achilles was not having any of it. Minka was shocked!

Yomoshoto 034

Soon Achilles gave in to Minka's formidable charms.

Yomoshoto 046

Yomoshoto 048

Yomoshoto 052

My, that escalated quickly... Wait, don't even think about it, Minka...

Yomoshoto 053


Yomoshoto 064


Yomoshoto 067

I'm right there with you Kira!
*Man, I need a gif of the babies going bonkers in the bouncy jumpy. It's hilarious!*

Yomoshoto 071

After woohoo, Minka and Achilles sit down for lunch and science.

Yomoshoto 072

Minka: Ugh! What is that smell!

Yomoshoto 076

After a meal and a diaper change, Kira is put to bed.

Yomoshoto 080

So Mom can do more of this.

Yomoshoto 082

and this.

Yomoshoto 085

Yomoshoto 089

This date was exactly what Minka needed. She's not too concerned that she could be pregnant again. It is what it is. At least this baby daddy is single and could maybe help her out a little bit.

Yomoshoto 095

Even though the date is over Achilles doesn't want to leave. Who can blame him? That cave he shares with all of the other NPCs is cold and damp. He really likes Minka. Maybe they could work something out...

Yomoshoto 097

Yomoshoto 096

Minka is the first sim in Oceanside to get a Good Reputation! The shy little Fortune sim! ^.^

Yomoshoto 112

Minka and Achilles hang out the rest of the night in the hot tub just talking and cuddling...

Yomoshoto 114

Until Minka says goodnight and heads to bed.

Yomoshoto 116

Later that night Achilles sneaks around Minka's house...

Yomoshoto 120

Yomoshoto 122

Yomoshoto 121

Holy Simoly Minka! Just what a money-hungry girl wants: an expensive DJ Booth! How could Achilles afford that?

Tuesday, Day Nine

Yomoshoto 012

Yomoshoto 015

After taking care of Kira's needs Minka rushes to the bathroom.
Minka: Damn, I'm really pregnant again?!

Yomoshoto 020

Noelee shows up to take Minka to work but she still can't go! Minka desperately wants to go to work but knows she can't leave Kira alone.

Yomoshoto 021

Seeing Frankie at the front door reminds Minka of all of the horrible things Achilles told her about living on the other side of the island. How the wild hyenas steal their food, and there's no running water, and how everyone smells really bad. Minka doesn't want the father of her unborn child to live like a caveman!

Yomoshoto 029

Even though she's not in love with him, Minka knows Achilles is a great guy and he can help her take care of Kira. Minka asks Achilles to move in with her.

Yomoshoto 032

Well, we knew he wasn't rich, but damn!

Yomoshoto 033

Now a full-fledge resident of Oceanside, Achilles takes Knowledge as his 2nd aspiration (which is more fitting for him IMO).

Yomoshoto 034

Yomoshoto 035

Achilles' contributions to the house are his two Science! plaques and smart milk. Because two scientists need to give their children the best possible advantages that science can create!

Yomoshoto 037

While Minka lays down for a nap...

Yomoshoto 041

Achilles heads outside to greet his buddy Lars.

Yomoshoto 052

Later Achilles investigates Minka's test dummy, and almost kills it.

Yomoshoto 059

Yomoshoto 061

Achilles is more than happy to help Minka out with Kira while she sleeps. Achilles really likes Minka and hopes that they can be together for a long time. Maybe even one day Kira will call him Daddy.

Yomoshoto 067

Yomoshoto 073

Being a Popularity Sim, Achilles loves to throw a party. He thought it would be a great idea to throw one in honor of Kira's birth. He invites all of his friends from the cave...

Yomoshoto 078

and everyone else as well! This is the biggest house party ever thrown in Oceanside!

As soon as the guests arrive...

Yomoshoto 079

Yomoshoto 088

Evil Teen Calvin O'Gill and Tinkerer Abbot Moulden share an awkward first kiss.

Yomoshoto 095

As well as Music & Dancer Edwina Goodard and Lars!

Yomoshoto 099

Minka wakes up to all of the commotion and a *pop #1*

Yomoshoto 100

Ugh, Minka. You're never going to get to go to work.

Yomoshoto 106

Yomoshoto 107

Yomoshoto 110

Beckett Graham is perma-stuck to stink face.

Yomoshoto 113

Yomoshoto 123

Anti-social Beckett heads outside to play chess alone but Vivian joins him.
Beckett: I don't think you can handle my mad skills, Mrs. Landgraab.

Yomoshoto 124

Vivian: Bring it Bitch.

Yomoshoto 127

Yomoshoto 129

Yomoshoto 133

Kendrick and Noelee are hugging? And Brodie isn't saying anything?? Hmmmmmm......

Yomoshoto 140

Achilles decides to test out his gift to Minka. He secretly would love to be a professional DJ.

Yomoshoto 146

Yomoshoto 152

Minka sees Kendrick and stops in her tracks. It's been a while since she last saw him and she can honestly say that she is over him. She has a new baby and a new man. Kendrick still, obviously, has feelings for her. It's a sad situation.

Yomoshoto 154

Yomoshoto 160

The blondes in the hot tub are joined by Hair God Rocky Kotsomiti.

Yomoshoto 163

Malcolm finds a cute little fox to play with.

Yomoshoto 172

More Teen/Adult flirting. This time it's Frankie and Paragon.

Yomoshoto 178

Yomoshoto 179


Yomoshoto 182

Vivian: Checkmate!

Yomoshoto 181

Beckett: Oh My Stars and Garters!

Yomoshoto 188

After it's over Achilles is worried that Minka would be mad that he threw a party without asking her first. She's always so serious. It's hard to tell what she's thinking.

Yomoshoto 193

As Minka nurses Kira she wonders if she made a mistake letting Achilles move in. Was it too soon? Did she do it out of desperation? What if she never falls in love with him? She thought he was a more serious sim like she was. What if every night was a raging party with Achilles around?

Yomoshoto 196

Only time will tell.

Notes: After Achilles' party he took a job in the Science career track. With Minka earning a Good Reputation she will now be the founder of The Blue Hat Society Club. More info on that in my rules.

Credits: I'm pretty sure the fox is this one by MsBarrows. The chess pieces replacement is by The Ninth Wave here.
