Time for another newly moved out sim!

Stepan Pavlov, the youngest of the 7 Pavlov kids, is a Popularity sim with a LTW to top the Journalism career. Unfortunately, the population is still below 1000, so there are no openings. He’s in the Business career instead. He also recently acquired a puppy, Snickerdoodle.

Stepan moved into the Picasos’ old house. He didn’t have much money left after buying the house, but he had to make sure Snickerdoodle  had everything he needed.

First up was friend making. Noelle’s always handy to fulfill someone’s work requirement.

Stepan greeted the welcome wagon, then headed off to work.

He got back home with a promotion, and enough cash to buy that all important sun lamp.

Stepan then decided to dabble in novel writing, since there wasn’t a lot to do in his underfurnished house.

Then Noelle came by with a gift! Stepan had a want to gain a logic point, so he sold her statue and bought a telescope.

Immediately after he put his eye to the new telescope, though, THEY came.

They brought him back several hours later, a little sore but otherwise in pretty good shape. He was a little worried, though; he knew what had happened to his brother Makari when THEY had come for him.

Well, they said if you fell off a horse, you should get right back on…

Stepan supposed he would have to wait to find out if he was going to have an alien baby, so he returned to the usual business of training Snickerdoodle.

“Thanks for coming by, paperboy. Now I’ll be platinum for work.”

A promotion brought in some much needed funds.

Stepan then found himself feeling queasy, which was funny since he had never eaten. He hadn’t even known he had a stomach.

Stepan needed a little more money to purchase a business, so he spent the afternoon digging. All he found was bones, but that was all right. Snickerdoodle would enjoy them.

Stepan loved his little puppy dog. He hoped his alien baby would be just as sweet.

Yes, it was official. An alien baby was on the way.

The carpool had arrived just as Stepan popped, so he headed off to work.

He came home with a promotion, which gave him enough to purchase a community lot.

Sunshine Floral sells a variety of decorative plants – a very small variety at the moment. It’s also the neighborhood’s 15th community lot, increasing the sim multiplier to 15.

While there, Stepan got a surprise first kiss with Brittany Parker.

By the time he was ready to go home, the store was fully stocked and had reached Level 3.

Back home, Stepan got to work on his self portrait.

Once it got light out, Stepan called over Brittany to make friends for work.

“I…I’ve never done this before,” Stepan said nervously.

“Oh, don’t worry, you’ll figure it out quick enough.”

Stepan wished he could stay with Brittany longer, but as soon as they were done, he had to go to work.

While Stepan was at work, Snickerdoodle grew up into an adult dog!

Look at his floppy ears! Not sure where they came from, but they’re adorable.

“Look at you! Who’s a big boy?”

Making friends for work is so much easier when work sends the friends-to-be in the carpool.

After friend making was accomplished, Stepan took Snickerdoodle on an outing to Kylie’s pet store.

Meet Rosalie!

Rosalie is a lovely German Shepherd who will hopefully one day have puppies with Snickerdoodle.

The dogs seemed quite happy to play together.

“Oh boolprop! The bathroom? I’m having the baby in the bathroom?”

“Well, you are an adorable little thing, aren’t you?”

Stepan named his son Akim.

“Dad, hi! You’ve got a new grandson!”

Leo readily agreed to babysit, so Stepan headed off to work, confident that Akim was in good hands.

“Well, so you’re another star child, are you? As much as I love grandchildren, my sons have got to be more careful around those telescopes.”

“You’re a nice dog, aren’t you?”

Snickerdoodle was quite fun to play with; Leo wondered if maybe Anya and Feofil wouldn’t like a dog as well.

Leo actually changed Akim’s diaper shortly after he wet it, thus making him far superior to any phone order nanny.

Stepan returned home with a promotion to Business Tycoon! He’s the neighborhood’s fifth.

Snickerdoodle got a job in Service. It’s not so much for the money; I just want to unlock the crazy fur colors so I can have green cats running around.

Stepan finished his portrait! Quite handsome.

“Well, star child, let’s get you your milk before bed.”

That’s it for this rotation. Next up is Davis Cooke.
