Drabble and Sims

Drabble for the hp100 "new canon" challenge: Class Struggle. Wizarding children and Muggle primary schools.

Finally the Makin' Magic Sims expansion is out for the Mac. We just installed it and I spent a very little time playing with it. I haven't got to cast any spells yet, though. It looks pretty cool. I have a wand and all.

I remembered that I actually do have a Harry Potter Sims character, though I haven't played him in forever. He's one of the poor unfortunate children in the Wintergreen Memorial Orphanarium. Here they all are:

Kal is a quiet boy. He likes to spend time alone working on articles for the school newspaper. His parents died in a big explosion.

Harry is always getting himself into trouble, though he never means to. He's on all the school teams. Sadly, Harry's parents meddled in the affairs of a wizard when he was just a baby.

John loves to play outdoors. He brings home a lot of stray animals, but is rarely allowed to keep them. Last year, he had the lead in the school production of Dr Dolittle. John's parents died in a mishap with a large primate.

Annie sings all the time. Most people find it annoying. Her parents perished in a house fire, but she's convinced they're still alive.

Anne is super-smart and good at everything she tries. She's also easily distracted. She's being tested for ADD. her parents died of consumption, which Anne finds romantic for some reason.

Lizzie doesn't always play well with others. Her teachers go so far as to call her "disruptive". It's probably due to the trauma of losing her parents to a vicious axe murderer, poor thing.

Pollyanna doesn't have a write-up since she was born, not created. I had to install a buyable-baby item to get seven kids in one household.

Mrs Anastasia Pike runs the Orphanarium. She's quite nice to the kids, but not one, but two of her husbands perished when she walled them up and left them to die. Their urns languish in a crawl space.

Oh, and I bought a Mos Eisley Cantina LEGO set on my lunch break today. It has Greedo! I think once I build it, I'm going to put him face down on the table with Han walking away.

...you didn't kill off all the orphaned Sims' parents yourself, did you? Or is it just backstory? *scared* *g*

Just backstory. *g* I'm not *that* evil. It's not like I created a sweatshop where slaves must toil making garden gnomes or like I started an cult that started recruiting members from my SO's families or anything.

I had an orphanage in my neighborhood, too! Mine was run by Jesus Christ and The Grinch. You've never seen two Sims less charmed by a child playing with a yo-yo. And *forget* trying to tickle them. I gave Jesus all the nice points, but few playful, and he was just a tired, joyless man.

My kids all had crazy names like Jerusalem, Jambalaya, and Ansible.

Mine was run by Jesus Christ and The Grinch.

Were they an item?

...The Sims has *changed.* Wow. I wish I hadn't lost my old copies (I stopped after House Party) so I could spend a hundred dollars and catch up. (on the other hand, perhaps it was a good thing after all. heh.)

Oh, there's all sorts of cool stuff. Pets and hot tubs where you can fool around (but not with your pets) and you can become a movie star and now a wizard too.

Oh, Lucius. As the twig is bent...

And your Sims Orphanarium sounds like Edward Gorey Playskool.

Hee! I think the "nobody is born evil" thing doesn't apply to Lucius.

It's posts like these that make me want to play Sims again.

John loves to play outdoors. He brings home a lot of stray animals, but is rarely allowed to keep them. Last year, he had the lead in the school production of Dr Dolittle. John's parents died in a mishap with a large primate.

Heehee!

I wondered how many people would get that one. :)

Two things.

1. Excellently eerie little fic! He pushed his next tutor down the stairs. *shudder*

2. She's quite nice to the kids, but not one, but two of her husbands perished when she walled them up and left them to die. Their urns languish in a crawl space.

The mental image I have of two Sims wandering aimlessly in a tiny room until they collapse is making me laugh so hard my stomach hurts. I've had three Sims die in the same house. I'm starting to think the house haunted. They move in, become listless, get fired, stop eating, and die in interesting places. I removed the urn from the lawn and the bathroom, but I left the one in the kitchen.

Hee! She didn't kill them both at once, but rather one at a time. It's quite sad, really, to watch them pacing around, unable to get out. I'm just diappointed that ghosts don't haunt children. The crawl space is in between their bedrooms.

It sounds like your Sims have more free will than mine do. *g* I'm a micro-manager.
