Hi welcome back to another chaper of Bistre's Reign. This is the Indian summer edition. Let's get started.
Killing Nighshade via thirst is more difficult than expected. I don't like seeing him suffer, so he's relieved of death duties... for now.
Omen and Ochre are back from college.
Omen steels all the jobs: Artist, Politics and Business.
Pregnant Bistre and Mother Vermillion obviously need something better to pass their time.
And the kids get their picture taken next to the Wishing Well.
Vermillion does the honors from the safety and shade of the house.
There's my happy family.
Omen's life time want is to top education, so he goes t work with his powerful big brother Nighshade to see what favors he can filch.
While Bistre tries to poison her first born.
He is strong, though, and their bond strengthens.
Sensing his end is near, and almost having died from exposure, Nighshade decides to take the easy way out and jumps for Bistre's Lagana cake. Plants eating plants, people. What has the world come to?
Bistre is beside herself with grief.
Vermillion, however, takes advantage of the new life resource. She did grow Nightshade, after all. She should reap the benefits of his passing.
Her life meter doesn't change, but she does feel empowered.
Omen comes home as the new education minister. He also reaps the rewards of his brothers efforts.
And this round he is the one chosen to live in an apartment and carry on his own legacy alongside Bistre. Vermillion sends him off with not much worry for her son.
Little Legion has become a toddler. He's very cute.
Ochre contributes to the career rewards. Military, Intelligence and Law crossed off the list. That's fifteen careers!
Little Legion is shown the basics.
But he also enjoys the affections of his family.
His lot in life complete, his existence rendered void by the IE gods that be, Ochre follows his brother into the after life. His second death might not be unique, but I figure its kind of cheatsy, not to mention cruel, to kill the same sim over and over again in different ways. I have killed five sims, after all, I should have tombstones to show for it.
Ochre shares a space next to his brother.
His mother is happy milk the Lagana again.
She might be developing an addiction.
Bistre goes into labor with Todd Midlocks child.
A beautiful little girl, Prasine.
Bistre, Omen, Ochre, Legion, Prasine. nightshade doesn't count because he was a plantsim. R, O, P and C still left to go. Hey, should C be N, since the site is .net now? :p
Bistre still has one child to contribute to the family, but she doesn't have a suitor in mind. So she calls up one of her old mentors, Gypsy Lew.
The Pyromancer and Gypsy are very excited to see each other again.
The witch-gypsy has played an integral part in both her and her mothers life. And with the power of foresight, her guidance now would be most valuable.
Lew sees conflict in Bistre's immediate future.
But that pain will be the catalyst for what she seeks in the end: a romance as fierce and bright as the fire within the Pyromancers own heart.
Bistre is grateful to her mentor. The gypsy will remained blesed by the Reenant family for all her days. And not be sought after by the cow of death.
"Yeah, she said I'd have a romance to rival all romances! It will have fire and passion! You know how much I like fire."
You're forgetting that she said it will only come via a conflict. A painful conflict. Do you have any of those right now?
"Well, no, but I mean conflicts aren't hard to create, I'll just invite a bunch of guys over tomorrow and flirt with them all."
That sounds like a terrible idea. You gotta invite me.
So the next morning Bistre called up as many guys as she could and invited them all to her place for a little fun.
And me, too. Except the only guys that came were Benjamin Long and Amin Sims.
Hello, little lady. You might be the heiress one day. Yes you might. Yes you might!
So this party was a bust. I mean, Bistre got a good score. You know, if Not Bad is a good score. But I suppose I can't expect much on a party thrown at nine in the morning on a Wednesday by a single mother who has two children to watch over. We'll try again next season.
Trying to force a conflict was maybe not the way to go.
But Bistre's adulthood only has so many days in it. She doesn't had long to meet a guy and have his baby- with or without his consent. I'm feeling the pressure!
So on the last day of Indian Summer Bistre flies off to King's Gardens to check out her prospects.
When Linda Bartlett offers Bistre a Blind Date with a Sports Enthusiast.
The date was going very well.
They got funny pictures taken.
Got to smooching.
And, weirdly, Armando Cox had beef with that. Since when does he even know Bistre?!
Anyways, that lit a fiery passion in Bistre and her date. No idea what his name is.
And I really do use this photobooth way too much.
I was there to cheer on the baby-making. Because I'm a weird duck. But Gypsy Lews prophecy came true!
Yeah, you do. Mind blowing sex on the first date? That deserves a heck of a lot more than a rose bouquet, buddy, you better be back with... something awesome!
"Oh here, dear, these are some old magic reagents that I've been holding on to, even though I haven't been a witch since you became a teenager." Oh Thanks, Mom.
And happy birthday to Prasine. Alright, lots going on in one chapter. Next chapter might be Omen's escapades, or if that's totally boring we'll skip it for another chapter here at base camp. Thanks for reading! See you next time.
