Generation 3: Syrana and Summer

Shortly after Syrana and Summer moved into their own house, they took a trip to the science lab.  Well, first they went to the cemetery… then they went to the science lab.  Summer saw an ad for bringing back loved ones and the girls decided to test it out on Grampa Brian.  It worked, so he moved in with them.  This wasn't too bad of an arrangement since he was able to get his old job back too!  Only downside for Brian – his bed was in the garage next to the car.  Oh well, ghosts don't need as much sleep and food as the living.

While Summer went about her goodly ways and got an entry position at the hospital, Syrana sought a life of crime.  One place where she could spew her conspiracy theories and be taken seriously was in dark alleys with other criminals.

One night, she was working with Sidney to rob some banks.  She had been assigned as his getaway driver.  Things had gotten intense, but they pulled it off.  After ditching the getaway car and clothes, they headed back to Syrana's place to lay low for a bit.

Sidney was a bit of a sweet talker.  Both of them still had adrenaline coursing through their veins.  One thing led to another…

…. and afterwards they whispered sweet nothings about diamonds and money… the shiniest loot to whet their appetite for more crime…

…. and more bad decisions about spending the night together.  Which turned into a few more sleepovers.  Syrana eventually found out that Sidney was married and had a couple of kids, but she was smitten.

Unfortunately, Sidney didn't return her feelings.  In fact, he thought he was a big ol' playa' and his behavior was inappropriate most of the time.  Syrana misread him as flirtatious until she walked downstairs to catch him kissing her twin sister in the kitchen.

Summer felt awful about hurting Syrana's feelings.  Syrana wouldn't accept her apologies.  Summer had been flattered to have someone show interest in her for once, but she was an innocent bystander – literally.  She had been standing there when Sidney walked up and planted one on her.  Syrana even called Summer evil for her betrayal.  This was the first bit of tension to enter the house since they moved off the compound.

Syrana became increasingly irritable and mildly sick.  At first she thought it was over her quick fling with Sidney.  Then she thought it was her body's way of revolting against the unusual work hours she kept.  But then, she started to wonder what it'd be like to have a baby…

  • Oh my, Syrana! (Sim Syrana, that is) I hope you’re prepared to add mommyhood to your life of crime and stealing candy from babies!

    And oh my, Syrana! (Real Syrana this time) I love these sims posts. I swear every time I read one, I fire up my own game and spend a happy day micromanaging.

  • I’m glad these posts inspire you to play! I should put together another one right now…. 🙂

    And… well, she *is* evil and she loves candy.


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!
