Sun rose over the beautiful mountains of Moonlight Falls.
I was up bright an early to give myself some good advice. I want to make a good impression on my first day of work!
The problem is that I’m SUCH a know-it-all. I can’t understand why I never listen to myself.
If today goes badly, I better not come crying to me. I’ll have only myself to blame.
THIS is what I had waiting for me downstairs.
I even moved the kitty bed for them.
As soon as they smelled me making breakfast, the kitties were awake. I had their undivided attention.
I mean, how can you resist this face??
Breakfast didn’t turn out exactly how I planned.
So I had to improvise.
So after all my planning, I was almost late!
I had to run after the carpool, but fortunately the driver noticed me screaming and waving and stopped so I could get in.
My driver was the only female firefighter I met at the station. I forgot to get her name because she was so boring compared to everyone else.
First a vampire came in for duty!
His name was Rick Lugosi. I asked him what he’d think of just running off to elope with me.
He said he didn’t even know me yet, much less want to marry me. I told him there was a potion that could fix that.
Then a werewolf! His name was Chris Whoovian.
I asked him if he grew really big fangs when he transformed, and if so how did he brush them?
I can’t believe I’m going to get paid to do this!
Upstairs, I found a vampire named William Pierce. He apparently likes to spend most of his time hanging around watching TV with no shirt. Not that I’m complaining.
He also likes to paint pictures with no shirt. Mmmmm.
William offered to show me how to polish the great big beautiful red fire engine. I said I would love to.
Then something even better happened! The alarm went off. We had a real job!!
Really quick, I changed into my formalwear. I wanted to make the best impression.
All the way to the fire, the sirens went, “Woowoowoowoo!” It was so exciting.
But I had trouble enjoying it because I forgot to pee before I left.
Just in case I had an accident, I stripped down to my swimwear. But I made sure I looked really tough for the poor panicking civilian whose house I was going to save.
The fire was in her garage. A real, honest-to-goodness fire! It was soooo beautiful.
It was hard to make myself put out such a beautiful fire, but I must say I looked rather dashing doing it.
Just me and the fire, one on one.
Yike! What was that?
And I still haven’t had a chance to pee!
OK, I just had a fire extinguisher that I used to put out the house fire. So what should I do? That’s it! I’ll drive home in the fire engine!
Wait, there’s a swimming pool!
Did you see that? Did you see???
I was ON FIRE!!!
I LOVE THIS JOB!
Whee! Now we’ve pretty much gotten up to where I stopped playing, and you’ve met most Allison’s mate options unless something wild and crazy happens on her next day.
Pick out the celebrity sims I dropped into the game! Two of them ended up as firefighters. Ha! If you know the television shows, they shouldn’t be too hard to pick out :).
BTW: I think that after Disciplined, Daredevil is the worst explained trait in the game. In fact, I think it might be worse than Disciplined, because the problem with that trait is just its name, not the description you get if you mouse over it. But Daredevil’s description is just really vague. I spent quite a while with Veronica trying to figure out what was cool about being a Daredevil. I play her as generically a daredevil, but not specifically a Sims daredevil because as far as I could tell, a sims Daredevil was just a more boring form of Brave.
Nope. The deal with Daredevils is that they’re obsessed with fire. Other than the social interaction “Watch This,” where they eat dirt to creep out other people and get an Adrenaline Rush, the primary way they can get Adrenaline Rush is to Play with Fire. Click a fire with a Daredevil sim, and you’ll get the interaction. THAT gives them an Adrenaline Rush. And more importantly, Daredevils can’t be killed by fire. Forget your Brave firefighters. You want Daredevils.
That said, I’m not sure how that scene was supposed to play out if she hadn’t been protected. She caught fire while putting extinguishing the house fire. She couldn’t extinguish herself, and there was no pool of water or shower on the lot (just a bathub). So I send her home. She gets INTO THE FIRETRUCK, still burning (I thought I caught the flames in the screenshot, but I didn’t sadly). And it automatically drops her off at the swimming pool.
The whole time, I had, “Stop, drop, and roll, stupid!” yelling in my head.
But being that she was a Daredevil, she got the biggest happy moodlet from the whole experience.
