The Vincis (D) - Round 7

[[Formerly the Tanaka E House]]


Inari Tanaka, Adult Family Sim, LTW Become Education Minister

Salvatore Vinci-Chin, Adult Knowledge Sim, LTW Become Hand of Poseidon


Last time we saw Inari, she was living in an apartment after graduation, waiting for Sal to graduate as well so they could begin their lives together. Sal graduated university early and finally joined her in Rosebud, with her dog Dakota, and together they moved into a new house. How will they do now that they are adults and living in the community?

Inari and Sal could hardly believe it. They were finally together and ready to start a life together. The first thing they did after the moving vans left was to kiss one another on their new front lawn, while Dakota happily looked on.

They'd been wanting to get married since Inari was in college, but now the time finally came. They picked a day and invited their families.

In their newly decked out back yard, with garlands and flowers all around, they exchanged their vows and their rings.

Paolo, in the background, couldn't believe he was here to witness his little brother get married. Their parents would have been so proud to see this moment, and Inari and Sal looked happier than they'd ever been as he dipped her to give her a kiss.

Their guests stayed late into the evening, talking, eating, and playing a rousing game of hackey sack in the newlyweds' living room.

It was the best party the neighborhood had seen for a long time, and Inari and Sal were just the two sims who deserved it most.

They didn't have enough money for a honeymoon, so they simply stayed in a hotel that night and enjoyed their first evening of wedded bliss.

They had searched all over the papers for this house, and they were delighted to have found it when they first visited. It was like a paradise to them, with a lush lawn and a unique layout.

It was definitely a starter home, but they didn't need anything more than a starter home. The modest kitchen and living room on the first floor was just the perfect size.

And what they lacked downstairs in luxury, they made up for with their enormous bedroom, which took up the entire second floor. Neither of them was in too much of a hurry to have children, so the house suited their needs perfectly and felt like their own little escape from the rest of the world.

The only thing the house lacked was a pond, where they could enjoy fishing the way they did back when they were teenagers. That was quickly remedied with a call to a landscaper, and the newlyweds spent a lot of their first week catching fish to fry up in their new kitchen.

Sal even got his silver fishing talent badge; long overdue, in his opinion, after all the fishing he'd done at college.

Inari soon caught up with him, and their refrigerator was stocked with all the bass, catfish, and trout they could eat.

Money was so low that Salvatore had to get a job, even though the only things open weren't in his desired career choice. He decided that he would work for a law firm temporarily until he could get a job in the Oceanography career, mostly because it paid a lot of money.

Fortunately, he didn't have to stick in that terrible career for long. After a few short weeks, he got lucky and found a position as a whale tracker - a job that he knew could eventually lead him to his lifetime goal of becoming the Hand of Poseidon.

Sure enough, he knew he'd found his niche when he came home after his first day with a big promotion and a bigger bonus.

Inari, too, decided that she needed to get a job, and she had bad luck at first finding a position in the education field as well. It was good for her that she excelled at journalism in the meantime.

With some of their bonus money, they gave their bland living room a makeover that better suited their tastes, and the house began to feel even more like a home. Sometimes they couldn't believe they were adults with their own place...a place they owned instead of rented, and one to which their parents had no claim.

The more time Inari and Sal spent outside, and the more Sal learned at his job, the more the two of them became interested in nature and the environment. They started a small garden so they could grow their own vegetables in addition to fishing in their pond. They even began composting their trash or recycling the things that wouldn't biodegrade so they could live a more green lifestyle.

Sal continued to get promoted at work thanks to his keen eye and ability to manage people while never forgetting the main purpose of his cause.

Inari switched careers again while waiting to find a position in education and ended up rapidly zooming to the top of the Natural Science career track. She and Sal were truly becoming landmark figures in the world of science, nature, and ecology.

Inari spent more and more time learning about things like vegetarianism, veganism, and the raw foods movement. Every time she entered a book store, she couldn't resist picking up a new cookbook to teach her how to make more delicious meals from the things they grew or the fish they raised.

While she was enchanted with her position, there was still a nagging feeling bothering Inari: she'd never achieved that goal of becoming an Education Minister. And now, with her new knowledge and experience, she could teach others what she'd learned. It was with a sad heart she left her job and took a high position in the education field. Perhaps once she'd achieved her goal, she could go back to her former position in ecology.

And that was when tragedy struck. Actually, Sal was just teaching Dakota how to play dead, but he was so convincing, even Dakota was worried for a little while.

The two newlyweds got along like no other couple. Their lives were completely uncluttered by traditional worries, and they lived their soothing, granola lives without much bother at all.

The worst thing they ever fought about was how Inari's bug collection far surpassed Sal's, but then she would collapse into giggles, kiss him, and tell him that she'd help him build his collection up, if only he'd teach her the secret of growing those fresh, ripe tomatoes of his.

[[Author's Notes: Awwww, I love this house! It's so naturey and lovely with all the grass and the pond. They're both turning out to be such granola hippies, I love it. They spend all their time on nature activities and even wanted to buy a tent, so I let them put one on the back yard for campouts. They go hiking together, with Dakota, all the time, and they're simply the most adorable couple in the world. I love playing this house because they're almost completely self-sufficient. They put in alternative energy sources, so there are no bills, they fish, and they grow vegetables. It's all very green, and I adore it. They've always been two of my favorite simmies.

This doesn't look like a day dream, it looks like a daymare. // It took so long for the guests to gather that strangers wandered into the ceremony and Sal and Inari started talking about hobby lot membership. // Inari disappeared halfway through the round, but apparently Aki can still see her. // Interesting want. I'll work on screwing a couple's relationship up for you right away, Inari.]]


Granola hippies eh? Too funny that they are such nature enthusiasts, but it really suits this couple. Any babies on the way? ::crosses fingers::

I don't really know how that happened, it just did. They fell into this nature pattern that I couldn't shake, so I decided to go whole hog on it. I mean, Inari loves her electric guitar, but the two of them somehow became super-obsessed with all the nature hobby stuff! There mebbe might be some baby action on the way....

The green house! Very funny.

Haha, they are adorable to me. I especially love sending them all on hikes together, including Dakota. They are total earth muffins. :)
