1.9 - Troublesome teenage

Ah, beautiful fall season! Valla's kittens are playing outside in the rain.

With 9 cats in the house now, Lena and Feli decided decided to build a little kitten nursery outside their house with a little cat garden attached to it. This is especially useful when the family has guests over, so the cats won't stand in the way all the time.

All the cats are happy and cared for and the kittens are growing up well. Absolutely nothing interesting or worrisome is happening in the Koyangi household this night.

Little Cami and Celine (or is it Clone? They look the same...) being cute. 

Uh, wait... where's Feli?

At school? But Feli hates school, why would she go there at this time?

I already said it in the last update, Feli has a true pokerface, always looking like she couldn't care less about the world around her. 
I know what she's planning though - she has been lazy as always had no time to learn for the upcoming tests and is about to silently sneak into the teacher's office like a cat and have a quick look at the test answers.

Too bad that one of the teachers, Mr. Martingale, stayed longer this day and saw her attempt to sneak in.  

Oh, I'm getting arrested. Whatever.
Even the cop is annoyed by so much "I don't give a damn" attitude.

(It's really hard to take screenshots of dark skinned sims at night btw...)
On her way home Feli sits in the backseat of a police car, which is so much more comfortable than going by bike. That's a plus at least.
Lena sees the red and blue lights through the window and runs out of the house. 
The backseat of a police car is definitely not the kind of place you want to see your child in.

"FELICIA! What the..."

After the police officer quickly explained what happened, Lena turns to her daughter.
"You tried to do WHAT? Who do you think you are that you don't have to learn like every other student? Who taught you that it's okay to break into a place you shouldn't be at? You're going to become a criminal or what?!"

"Jeez, mom... Calm down, it's nothing..."
"You're grounded, young lady. Don't you even try to leave the house for anything other than school for the next two weeks!"

But you're only grounded for as long as your parents are watching, so the next day Feli goes into the bathroom where her mom can't hear her and asks her friend Lutz to meet her at the Salon & Tattoo Parlor.

Little "sims logic" anecdote: When I invited him over to the lot, Lutz said that he couldn't come because he had something else to do. So I sent Feli alone there instead, and guess who she met there? Yup, Lutz. 
"Sorry, can't come to the salon today, I wanted to go to the salon instead" makes sense...

Feli leans over to him to whisper why she actually wanted to come here. Not only does she need new clothes for prom, but she also wanted to ask a little favor of the tattoo artist who works here. Lutz looks sceptical. 

Leaving her cowardly friend behind, Feli goes downstairs trying to look like an adult. Excited and full of confidence she approaches the tattoo artist with her wish: a belly piercing and maybe a tattoo of some cat paws on her hips and waist, depending on the price?

The guy is probably around ten years older than Feli and his own tattoos seem to be lacking in quality and creativity to be honest, but Feli doesn't care about that.
 "Uh-huh, alright. I don't have any other customers right now so we can do it right now if you're cool with that. I just need your ID card to confirm your age and then I'd like you to sign that paper..."

Hmph. She wished he hadn't asked.
"Oh nooo, I must have forgotten it at home... I swear I'm already 18 though! Lets just do it now if you have time anyway and I can bring my ID card on another day, yes?", Feli says with puppy eyes and a charming smile. 

But tattoo guy isn't convinced that easily. Feli is not the first and surely not the last minor to come to him with this excuse. 
"No, I can't do that. I need your ID card before I can do anything for legal reasons. Come back when you have it."

SLAP. Solving conflicts the Feli way.
"So you suggest I'm lying about my age?! I would NEVER do that! That's SO rude, I will find a different studio and tell all my friends to never come here!"

Now that was a reaction tattoo guy hasn't seen from a customer yet! "Woah, what the hell?", he says, unsure about how to deal with that angry teenager, "Yeah, if your friends behave like you do then I'd be overjoyed to never see them in my studio! Man, kids these days..."

Still angry, Feli stomps away like a 4 year old that didn't get her candy. 
"Tsk, I can do it myself anyway!"

And so she does. Without the tattoo but with a DIY belly piercing she shows up a few weeks later at her school's prom. 

She's quite the beauty, honestly. That is, when she is not being a diva and slapping people in their faces. 

It looks like between start and end of the prom, winter has begun in Appaloosa plains. That bellyfree outfit might not be appropriate for the season, but showing off your new piercing is much more important than staying warm, eh?


I will put up a new page with the download links for Lena, Feli, and a few of the cats with the next update this saturday or sunday because I was asked last time :-)

In real life I actually did forget my ID card once when I went to get a piercing, and I also asked if I could just bring it on another day (though unlike Feli I was already 20 back then). I got the same answer as Feli did in this update and had to come back another day, wasting a few hours of my day and the money on the train ticket. :(
And, again just like Feli, I also did a few of my piercings on my own at home (belly and ears). But that's where the similarities end, I don't slap people in the face or get in trouble with law, I promise!


  1. I can definitely relate to the problem with screenshotting dark-skinned sims at night. Kylie why ;_;

    Ooo, Feli the rebel kid. Lena's not gonna be pleased when(/if) she finds out about that DIY piercing :P

    Looking forward to those download links! I might have to borrow one or two of the cats for one of my families some time. It's tempting to adopt one into my legacy for breeding but I feel like taking someone from one legacy to shove in mine is a bit iffy.

    1. Well, Lena has a few tattoos and a lip and nose piercing (hard to see in the screenshots because they're so small) so I assume she'd be rather relaxed about that topic - if Feli had just asked her instead of doing it herself...

  2. Feli is gonna be a criminal, isn't she?? :o She has all the makings of a criminal, though I'm wondering if she'd be a thief or an empress of evil.

    Ugh, it's so frustrating when sims pull the "I can't meet you right now" thing. It annoys me. >:(

    Hmm, Feli's scene in which she slaps the artist seem too realistic. I think you did slap people and get in trouble with the law. ;)

    1. Mhh, your last career guess was closer =D She's just a rebellious teen (and it's also a hint for another roll, not career though). But things should clear up in the next update because we're almost through with generation one!

      Nooo, I swear, I'm not a meanie ;_;

  3. I love Feli's flippant attitude. Arrested? no big deal. Grounded? Not if I can help it! She's a riot, lol. Not sure if I support the whole piercing herself thing, though. Cheating at school and sneaking out is one thing, but stabbing yourself full of holes at home is a whole other ball game!

    1. You think so? That's funny, I'd see it just the other way round, in real life I've always tried to be a good girl in school and at work (I swear!) but never thought of DIY-piercings as a big deal because it's my own body after all! :-D

  4. Whoa, Feli can be mean! Poor tattoo artist.

    I'm going to guess that one of her rolls is the one where you have to get a new tattoo every week?

    1. Oh, I haven't even thought about this roll. Actually I DID hint at a roll here, but not the tattoo thing... (*lowers voice* it's about the slapping!)
