The Oceanside Project: Firestone  

Warnings: Woohoo, Surfing, Bromance, Sadie Winchester, Smoke.

Day One:

Connor Firestone. Resident tattooed surfer with a thirst for knowledge and a way with a wrench. Connor's goal is to be Oceanside's mechanic and open his own garage/ gas station. In order to do that he must first fully restore a car from a pile of junk. Since it's currently raining, Connor decides to read more about cars and mechanical things in general first before tackling Old Bertha out there.


Uh huh.

Try these, like, times a thousand and you know how Connor spent his first morning of life. *yawn*

Then... ZOMG! FIRE! Well, ok, you know how I've been counting these when I shouldn't have been counting these? This one I did not count because the rain washed it away before Connor could even put his book down. The rest of them counted, though, damnit!

There's nothing better than a TV dinner! And now that the rain has stopped Connor can finally get started on his old clunker. But wait...

There seems to be some riff raff by your front door, Connor. Better stay hidden on the side yard so you don't have to talk to them.
Sadie: I wonder who lives here in this pretty aqua house? If I pretend I'm stretching, maybe they'll come out and say hi. I hope it's not one of those mean girls. I hate them all. One day, when I'm a copper I'm going to arrest them all for something. I'll just make shit up. Then we'll see whose laughing at whose. Or is it whom? Or is it who? Where's Fitz? I want a baby!

After narrowly escaping Homeless Calista and Stalker Sadie, Connor begins the restoration of Old Bertha.

And finds it's much more difficult than he had anticipated.

Luckily Diego Bossanova, brother of the love of Connor's life, Selena, shows up to distract him from the smoking engine.

Connor: Hey Diego! I totes want to screw your sister!

Diego: *WTF face*

In order to smooth things over, Connor invites Diego to go surfing with him. He even lends him a board.

Both of them are horrible at surfing and wipe-out, but it's a bonding experience. Connor and Diego become fast friends.

Sadie: My surfing sense is tingling. Did Diego and Connor just wipe out?
Why are you jogging in front of Connor's house again Sadie Winchester?
Sadie: But-but I live next door?

After surfing, Connor lights the firepit and he and Diego talk for hours. A bromance blooms.

Day Two:

Connor starts the day off right with a nice filling cereal breakfast. He really needs to work on Old Bertha and get her fixed up soon. But wait, what's that he hears... outside... on the sidewalk...

Connor: *runs*
Seriously, he ran.

It's his true love, Selena Bossanova! He was hoping she would cruise by.

Well that escalated quickly. Seriously. I didn't do anything. He greeted her and then ACR made their panties drop in less than a sim hour.

As soon as Connor falls asleep, however, Selena quietly slips out.
Diego: Hey, I wonder what my new BFF Connor is doing right now? Hey Sis, whatcha doing coming out of Connor's house? Is your shirt on inside out?
Selena: Shut up Diego.

Sadie: I wonder if Connor is around. I'll just stretch here for a couple more hours to see if I catch him.

Sad that Selena left him all alone without a cuddle buddy, Connor gets out of bed to make himself another delicious TV dinner...

Connor: *gasp* ZOMG! FIRE!
I know...


Luckily no sim perished in the Great Housefire of Spring Year 0. The trauma of the fire left Connor in low spirits, bad smells and hungrier than ever. He took a quick bath and came back to see how his dinner fared.

Sadie: Do I smell a fire?

Connor comes back to see if his meal is salvageable and finds... smoke and charred remains.

Connor: ;_;
I know, baby. I'm so sorry. But you got to eat it. It's not like you have a job and can afford to waste food.

He eats... and gags. But at least he has pleasant thoughts of woohoo to get him through it.

Back to Old Bertha, his fickle mistress.

Sadie: Maybe if I walk by really slow he'll notice me and start talking to me.
Why are you stalking Connor? You have a man.
Sadie: I just want to be his friend *sad eyes*

Luckily Connor escapes the clutches of Sadie Winchester and turns in for the night.

Day Three:

Sadie: *sad face* Why doesn't he want to be my friend?
Great Plumbob Sadie Winchester! Fine. I'll send out Connor to greet you. You happy now?

Surprisingly Connor and Sadie get along quite well. I guess I shouldn't have kept him from you, Sadie. There aren't many people in Oceanside that can handle your type of... personality...

Connor likes Sadie so much that he invites her to surf on his beach. This is a big deal. Not just anyone gets to surf with Connor on his beach. But she has to bring her own board, damnit.

She surfs...

...she falls.

Sadie: There's water in my ears. I think I'm blind. I can't hear.
That's deaf, asshat.

After surfing, Diego calls to see how his bestie is.
Connor: Hey man, can I call you later. That chick Sadie Winchester is here. I gotta get rid of her, though, cause I got Selena coming over in a bit.
Sadie: I have friend. He's talking about me ^_^

After finally getting rid of Sadie, Connor takes a shower and dresses and calls Selena to ask her on a date.

This time, Connor thinks, he's not going to let her sneak away.

Connor and Selena: *engaged*

Um, yeah. No other date you will ever have will end in a diamond ring, missy.

Connor cooked some delicious Mac & Cheese for dinner and then made a toast to their future. Who says thug surfers can't be romantic?

Old Bertha doesn't seem too happy about the engagement.

Connor decided to come inside and read a bit more on repairing engines. Yes Selena. This is a snapshot of what your married life to Connor will look like. Damn knowledge sims.

Shush you.

Day Four:

In the morning, when Connor finally falls asleep, Selena sneaks back home.

We're going to try the TV dinner again, eh?

Connor: Hmmm. Who the fuck are these from?

Awwww. That's what happens when you bang a teacher. ~poetry~

After lunch Diego stopped by.

Connor and Diego: *Bro-hug*

Diego settles in to watch TV while Connor tries to fix Old Bertha.

Woot! The engine is looking good Connor!

Sadie happens to walk by (shocker) and Connor greets her with a kiss kiss.

Diego comes back outside, starts talking to Sadie, and realizes that he likes her too. What bizarro world is this? Hey, Diego, your girlfriend Matisse is standing right there. Why don't you say hello?
Sadie: So then they get on this train and it takes them to some magical castle called Pigfarts.
Diego: *plus relationship*

Minka: Hi Diego! (Is he really having a conversation with Sadie Winchester?)
Sadie: And some kind of way the trunks were magically in their rooms. Probably the house dwarves. Or were they gnomes? I don't remember. They were ugly though, let me tell you.
Diego: *plus relationship*
Minka: What the actual fuck?

Sadie: BabybabybabybabybabybabyIwantababybabybabybabybabybaby

For dinner, Connor grills hot dogs for his two besties.

Connor: I just want you to know, bro, that I really love your sister and I will do my best to make her happy.

Diego: I don't know, bro. Love is evil. It's only here to rip out your soul and drag it through the mud. And when it's done, it will tear out your heart and feed it to the demons. And those demons will swim in your tears and laugh at your torment.

Connor and Sadie: ...

Matisse Troubadour just happens to walk by and Connor thinks now is a great time to have her join the dinner party.
Connor: Hey Matisse. Good to meet you. Yeah Diego's inside, you might want to cheer him up a bit. He's talking some crazy shit up in here.

Matisse tries to reassure Diego that love isn't evil.

Matisse: *stares at Sadie with hate-filled eyes* That's my man, Sadie. *through clenched teeth*
Sadie: No one wants him but you...

Connor heads to bed hoping a girl-fight doesn't erupt. *Spoiler* it doesn't.

Day Five:

Is this a bad thing?

Connor: Hey bro, I see you spent the night in the hot tub. I made some cereal for you.

WHAT!? And I made him make you cereal... against my better judgement, even.

Old Bertha is still causing problems, but then...

Taa daa! Look at that block. Bertha, you're turning into a beauty!

Now to work on her body.

It started to rain again so Connor took a nap. Doing body work is really exhausting.

Back to the grind...

Good night, Connor. Thanks for reading!

Notes: Connor still has a ways to go before Old Bertha is fully restored but at least the engine is fixed. At the end of the week Connor took Pleasure as his secondary aspiration (because of all of the surfing he likes to do).

LOL!! This was hilarious. Poor Sadie Winchester, just can't catch a break. I love Conner, he is absolutely adorable and he and Selena make a cute couple. Can't wait to see more of him.

Thank you =D
Sadie is kind of the odd ball of the group. No one seems to like her very much. That's why I was so shocked that Connor and Diego were actually nice to her.
Connor and Selena are pretty inseparable. I can't wait to see their babies!

I just got caught up reading this and I've enjoyed it. That Sadie is one crazy lady though...

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!!

I can just spam you with redundant comments of how much I appreciate reading your updates, both for the beautiful pics and witty captions. Sadie the approximate Potterfan is just one more aspect of Sadie's awesomeness.

Thank you Simlili! I love all of your comments ^.^ Yep Sadie is a Potterhead but she doesn't get a lot of the facts right!

So, on with the commenting again (I've been busy building beach houses - 4 of them, this far ;)
Connor is such a hottie. He made me remember the tattoos I already had in my downloads folder. A couple of sims with the right style got inked up. What can I say - this blog is inspiring. :D
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on May 6th, 2014 02:34 am (UTC)
Awww thank you! I can't wait to see more of your beach houses!

I love Connor ;) He seemed like he needed tattoos to go with his image. I was thinking he might open a tattoo parlor business where the sims will come in and get the tattoo overlays applied.

I love your BaCC; I just started reading it yesterday, but I am already in love.
