So having made Rose May's household, it's time for Gareth and Andy. Gareth has pretty much been all set and ready to go, though making his Sim was tricky. I think I mostly got what I want, but there are a few issues. For one thing, he looks too young and attractive. Gareth has aged prematurely, to the point of greying hair (which I mostly got; his hair does look a bit old), and an old face. Sadly, I could not get a very old face on a Young Adult Sim, but I tried. I left a stubble because Gareth's hygiene is nicht sehr gut.
Then come traits. Gareth is a Workaholic (Trait I) like Rose May, but unlike Rose May he has Commitment Issues (Trait II), which are painfully clear in his on/off relationship with Andy. Though he may seem like one, Andy is actually not a perfectionist, but he is
very Ambitious (Trait III), and can actually be quite Inappropriate (Trait IV), especially in court room. The last trait, like with Rose May, is tricky. I imagine Gareth as an insomniac but probably not a light sleeper, so I think I'll go with the random: Never Nude. I imagine Gareth as having issues showing extensive skin.
Favourites are tricky. Gareth isn't a big eater and so he'd probably prefer something light, like PB&J. Music and colour are random: electronic and green.
Andy is fun. As a brown werewolf, he has rich chocolate skin (too rich for Sims III to manage), beautiful chocolate hair (it can manage that), and brilliant yellow eyes (and that too!). I make his eyes look very foreign. In the end he ends up sexy. Works for me; I imagine Andy being a rather gorgeous were both in human and wolf form. He ends up shirtless Jacob-style for swimming, athletic, and sleeping, since he'd probably be in wolf form for those, most of the time.
Now for Traits. First and foremost, Andy is Neurotic (Trait I); forced castration does that to you. He's also really damn Unlucky (Trait II), and being a werewolf, he Loves the Outdoors (Trait III). From here there are a number of traits I could add. I could pay a tribute to his "wolves mate for life" belief with "Hopeless Romantic". I could continue the "his life really sucks" with the "Loser" trait. Or I could make him Athletic since he's, well, a werewolf. Decisions, decisions.
I give him Grumpy (Trait IV), as his friends are shocked when he is happy in the novels. Hilariously, the Sim growls
. xD So far, Gareth has picked such a LOVELY mate. And he did: through all this shit, Andy still goes into human society, pulls through, and overall shows that he is one hell of a Brave (Trait V) individual. Go Andy.
Favourites are fun. Andy is a wolf; he wants MEAT. Steak it is! Music I just make Custom -- weres aren't big on music -- and for colour I pick brown because I'm boring. For wish I put "Perfect Mind, Perfect Body" because that sounds pretty Andy to me. Voice is the growliest thing I can find in the Sims. Oh, and Gareth's life-time wish was top of politics, of course.
Yay all done! I merge 'em with the other family because dammit, I want to play them D:
So without further adoe, here are the two newcomers:
Gareth who doesn't look like Gareth. In the background...
Is Andy who sort of looks like Andy. Face needs some work, though.
Just a bit of haha. Their relationship is REALLY high, higher than Meander and Rose May's even though they are engaged and these two aren't. Which is pretty much the exact OPPOSITe of the novels but oh well.
Off to play now.
Edit - In a LOL moment, Almas the vampire set the stove on fire while trying to cook Mac & Cheese, Andy coolly extinguished the flames, and Nur got all excited because HOLY SHIT FIRE. I had Almas order a pizza while Andy complained about Almas. Nur yawned in his face. Oh Sims.
