PostSubject: Sweet Dreams (A Rags to Riches Challenge)   Wed Jul 02, 2014 6:50 pm

Meet Misty Sweet who dreams of being a Professional Author. She is hoping to make millions and be very famous. I call it a Rags to Riches Challenge because I don't have Seasons so it's not really a Rain in my Shoes Challenge. I am using the rules from the Rain in my Shoes Challenge though.



Traits: Good Sense Of Humor, Loves The Outdoors, Computer Whiz, Bookworm, Perfectionist
Loves Autumn Salad, Classical music and the colour aqua.
Download: Misty

She purchased a lot across the street from the Bunch household. She went over and met her neighbours and stayed for dinner. She has been collecting seeds, rocks, gems and insects and selling most of them. She started a little garden of only 5 plants. One night she visited the cemetery and took a tour of the catacombs. Scared the pants off of her but she came away with a space rock worth 238 S.



After a week and a half she has a small house. She still sleeps in a tent, but now has a kitchen and bathroom indoors. She also had enough to purchase a desk, chair and computer. She has written her first book. She is on her way.

Thanks EQ.

Burglar! Obviously the police were no help!



And what did she steal you may ask? Her tent. She had to spend the rest of the night hunting down rocks and gem so she could afford to buy a rocking chair. Better sleep anyway. Always a silver lining.

Now she has finally raised enough funds to go to China.

Thanks Gram. Misty was one of the first Sims I ever uploaded back in 2009.

Got the books for sure. Also met someone there. You may recognize him. They chatted for so long and I didn't have to prompt her once except to find out his sign and if he was single. Compatible and also mutually attracted.



While in China she got the adventure to look for metal. So she looked for 3 whole days, but didn't turn any in. One sold for 1,423 S. Wow! After returning home, she sold all the books and remaining metal and wound up with over 26,000 S in the bank. Time for a new house. I built onto the top of the original. Still lots of room to build up more.





I have her queued up to invite Liu Pei for a visit next time I play.

Edit: Sorry forgot to look at her gross funds.

Too bad she  Suspect forgot to turn in all the metals.

I keep hearing the song when I see this thread...
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something.

Thanks so much for your comments. I've discovered that I have cheated. I used the 'steel bladder' reward, I harvested and cashed in money trees and I used the ultra life span. OOPS! Well I started over. Normal life span. I changed my focus and had her focus on her writing instead of collecting. She has written 3 books and I'll post more details next time. As soon as she reached enough money she went to China. She got the same adventure, hunting for metal, and 'borrowed' the books from base camp. She met Lui Pei and they hit it off the same way, she even flirted with him without my prompting. They are good friends and she had enough money to buy the house. I placed it at 17 Maywood, yes I had saved it to the bin, where she was living in the first save. I left her in front of the house having just called Liu for a visit.

Yeah that steel bladder would be very useful in real life.

Like I said in my previous post, things are very much back to where they were. She invited Liu and asked him to move in. We left his brother and parents back in China. She waited until they were best friends to ask him those two questions. Will you go steady and then, of course, will you marry me?



He said yes. His LTW is to have a Bottomless Nectar Cellar.  hmm His first wish was for a better fridge and you can see it in the picture above. My first wish was for a different outfit. Achieved and then he had wished to go to France.. Misty was still recovering from her trip to China, so he went alone.  I never get tired of this.



He is now level 5 in the nectar making skill and got to level 8 of gardening, he came equipped with level 4 gardening. He has made 18 bottles of nectar and place them in his new nectar cellar. While in France, he bought a nectar maker and a nectar rack.

They have 957 S in the bank and their house is now worth 38,553 S after a few more additions. As well as the nectar cellar we also added a garden. So far he is growing Benoit grapes and apples plus a couple of the new crops that came with the Bohemian garden set. I took the second picture below before the garden was added, but it is located right behind the back fenced in area. We still need to add some windows to the top floor, but we're not in a hurry.





After speaking with his mother he had a wish to go to China and Misty still has that metal adventure. So, I guess, when they have both recovered from their trips they will head for China. I think we will have the wedding there so his family can attend.

Misty is working on her sixth book. She has had 4 hits and one best seller. So far she has made 2,916 S and is at 1,913 S of the 4,000 S in royalties needed for her LTW. I want her to finish this book before they go to China. She has reached level 10 of the writing skill.

Yes she was my avi for awhile, probably back around 2009. She is again on the official site.

A burglar tried again, but didn't make it past the alarm and the cop was successful catching her this time.



The plan to have the wedding in China has been changed. Both of Liu's parents have died before they could raise enough money. Liu invited his brother, Wei, to visit and asked him to move in with them. (I hope it is okay. I used TCE to add him to the family. Because he is a teen, the option to ask to move in wasn't available. I just didn't like the idea of him being on his own without any parents in China.)



Wedding pictures soon.

Finally the wedding day. It was delayed by Misty heading off to China again for an opportunity. She still had the metal adventure so came home with heaps of simoleons. Then I had to send Liu off to Egypt to get a pomegranate for his nectar making. So the wedding picture. The wedding was at dusk. Mr and Mrs. Sweet. As you can see in the background, the simoleons were well spent on Liu's garden. A tractor. They also moved house and all to the lot at 15 Summerhill.



I keep forgetting to write down their status so far.
