Generation 2: Aerissa and Caleb

Death's desire to party had not gone over well.  The entire family was in varied states of grief and panic, but they all thought it was in poor taste that Death had been blowing a party horn while the ghost of dear Darcy sulked away.

Aerissa came back after trying to chase down her mother's ghost.  Syrana questioned Death's behaviors, really giving him a piece of her mind.

Death didn't bother to answer.  He knew when he wasn't wanted and there weren't any other souls to be taken from the compound this evening, so he disappeared… into thin air.

The grandchildren bonded during their mourning that night by doing the only thing that made them feel good… they acted like children.  Summer, Syrana, and Trenton spent most of the night on their childhood swingset sharing memories of their sweet grandmother.  It was the most the three of them had spoken with each other in what seemed like years.  Unfortunately, the family closeness was shortlived.

Everyone was acting a bit weird, grieving in their own ways.  For the first time since Syrana and Summer could dress themselves, they agreed to wear matching nightclothes to appease their mother.  Syrana commented on Trenton's slippers, not realizing that he bought them for himself.  The monotony of life on the compound started to get to the girls.  High school graduation was just around the corner and it was only a few more weeks until their 18th birthday.

Generation 3: Syrana and Summer

Life wasn't the same and they were itching to move on with their lives.

Especially Syrana.

  • I must be the sickest person on earth because I nearly passed out from laughing at Darcy keeling over taking care of the baby and the “wake” afterward.

    I bought Sims 3 two weeks ago (I got the holiday “gift” version that has the flash drive that looks like the green crystal over their heads). So far I’ve been making Sims named after people I don’t like and giving them all the bad traits. Hours of fun doing that.

  • @Kim – You can’t be the sickest since I’d be right there with ya! I was dyin’ when it all happened in front of me. I nearly missed some of those shots xD

    I’m glad you are having fun with it. It’s also fun to stage “accidental” deaths. Sometimes… a rich old hubby just drowns in the pool when the stairs mysteriously disappear. >.>

  • I swear Syrana, every time you post one of these, I go and play the sims. No kidding. 😛

    My sim is almost to her international super spy goal!

  • @Rhii – *steeples fingers* yess, yess, my plan is coming along quite nicely…

    But seriously, I’m glad these posts make you want to play! And, oooh an international super spy! 😀


We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
