Calypso Island - Week 01: Knight  

Welcome back to Calypso Island! :D It's time to properly meet Terri Knight. Terri is a fortune sim, who hopes she'll be able to turn her writing into something that'll pay the bills.



But for now writing will have to wait. There is no electricity on the island and Terri used up her laptop's battery on the way over. So she keeps it in it's box, passing the days until she can charge it again.


But combing the shore for seashells can get a bit boring after a day or so.
Terri decides to invite Lily over and discuss electricity.


"So you see, it's pretty annoying. All this free time and I can't even email the publisher. Do you know when the power will come on?"

"Kevin said he's working on it. Everything should be up and running by next Monday."

"Oh, that's great! Speaking of Kevin..."


" I don't want to talk about it!"

" Geez, fine."


They spend the rest of the day making a list of the things that had to be done."

"You know Lil, you might want to give priority to law enforcement."

"What? Why? There's only 7 of us here?"


"Didn't you hear? The Morgans had a burglary."

"What? Is Kevin - I mean are they okay?"

"Yeah, they're fine. Lost half their inventory though, according to Jake."

"Oh that's just awful."


After that, Lily went home to work some more.

Terri got started on dinner when the phone ran.


"Yeah hello!"

"She was here, yes."

"None of your business."

"No it's not."


"What do you mean, did she ask about you? Why don't you ask her?"

"No I won't. You can tell her that yourself."

"You know what? Why don't you come over? I have spaghetti... Good. See you soon!"


And so he did.

"Hey Kevin. How are you holding up?"

"I'm okay."



"I see you still wear the ring..."


"Oh Terri, I don't know. One minute I'm really angry and the next minute I find myself holding the phone already half-dialing her number. I don't know what to do."

"Just make up with her already. Call her, tell her you miss her and ask her to apologize. I'm sure she's really sorry, deep down inside."

"But what if she's not?"


"Tell you what, I'm giving you guys until Saturday to sort this out. And then I'm stepping in."


"What will you do?"



"Nope, I won't tell you yet. You'll see."


Without power, or anything else to do really, Terri spend her days relaxing.



She bought an easel to pass the time.


With not much to do besides painting, Terri was glad when Saturday rolled around. She invited Lily over for - yet another - spaghetti dinner.




And while Lily sat down for dinner, Terri set the wheels of her plan in motion.


"Oh Lily, guess who I ran into outside?"


"I'm... gonna take off."


"Oh don't be ridiculous! If you guys want some privacy, you can talk in my bedroom."


"Yeah, they're in there right now!"

"No Remi, I don't know what they're doing. Who knows?"


"Maybe they're having a huge argument, with lots of feelings and stuff."


"And then Kevin will have had enough and leaves. But he takes one look back and sees the love of his life, crying her heart out."


"And by then he realizes that he truly loves her and can't bear to see her in this much pain. And that there will be a way to get past it."

"Yeah, she'll have to sob over how sorry she is, of course!"


" And then they'll make up. Damn... do you think I should change the sheets after they leave?"


"What? No, I don't know if that's what happening, silly! The door is closed!"

"I'll let you know."

Terri never did find out what happened. They both left shorty after Terri hung up. Terri lingered at the door, but they just said goodbye and walked away in different directions.


On Sunday, Terri felt a sudden boost in enthusiasm when she was painting. She also thought she heard someone next to her talking about a hobby plaque, but she wrote that off as heatstroke.

Hahaha, oh Terri is definitely my favorite - she's so cuuuute! Loved the ending too, a heatstroke indeed. x)

Terri surprised me to be honest, I didn't think she'd be this fun when I made her in bodyshop :)

No, they had this fight over Kevin wanting to wait and all, remember? :)

And nope, that's some glitch with the mesh of her swimsuit. Must be something with the mapping. I must remember to switch swim wear the next time I play her.

Terri's definitely the funniest character! I love her personality, she's good but explosive at the same time. I think her first book will be about LilyxKevin :)

However, I'm seriously biting my nails, waiting for the next update! I fell in love with Rosie Carr when I saw her and read her description in the introduction post, and we still haven't seen her anywhere in the other settlers' weeks... so now we'll finally meet her and I'm very curious about her personality! Will she be the spiritual compass of the group, or an over-religious version of Mrs. Crumplebottom?

It just might be, Terri likes to "draw from life" XD

Rosie is being a bit... unsociable I think. She was invited to Lily's big Bonfire party, but she didn't show up and she never showed up at the other houses either. But next update, she'll have no place to hide >:D

I have a feeling that Terri will be meddling in everyone's business. After all, other people's drama makes for great writing. :)
Keonikeoni_chan on February 28th, 2014 05:06 pm (UTC)
She does seem to have the need to involve herself with just about everything XD Seriously, other households can't have as much as a conversation without her walking by. I think I can guess what her first book will be about, hahaha

Re: supa cute pictures !
I'm so glad you like it! :D I hope Kevin and Lily can sort it out too, but you never know with sims :)

Lily's dress is a conversion of a TS3 dress by anubis I did. It has some minor issues (I'm playtesting it while playing my bacc), but once I've sorted them, I'll post it here :)

Terri is so hilarious! I love her little ideas about Lily and Kevin, she definitely has a writer's imagination. I can tell she is going to be a very interesting character as the story progresses. :~)
