Clone 2 - Chapter 1

Marty Wake up
Marty wake up - that sedative should have worn off by now!!
Its you again!?
Yes, I am back.
Sedative what sedative and where am I??
I leave you alone for five minutes and you go and get yourself into trouble.
You have got yourself admitted to Bushey Fields.

Bushey Fields - isn't that .........OMG, I am in the nut house!!!!
Yes, you are in the Insane Asylum.
But I am not mad!!!
I did warn you that obsession with your dead vampire girlfriend was not healthy, you did insist on talking about her, not everyone believes in ghosts and when you keep on talking to her and kissing her if front of people who can not see ghosts they think you are balmy and you end up here!!!!
I need to get out of here - I am not mad!!
Well according to your psychiatrist you are and you did drive yourself a little insane in the process, unfortunately you are stuck in here until you prove yourself to be sane!!
How am I supposed to do that??!!
You need to aspire to something and achieve it - your life time wish, what is it?
I want to be a  Robot Creature Cross Breeder why?
So that's it when you achieve your life time wish, you psychiatrist will set you free.  Luckily for you they have accessed you as low level insane so you are allowed to get yourself a job, all your other room mates aren't so lucky they are stuck in here 24/7, you are allowed out but only under supervision !!
Great - so who is this fruitcake talking to the wall???!!!!
That's Liam I'll tell you a little bit about your fellow inmates shall I.

This is Liam Nerd - he used to live in Sunset - obnoxious little man who took great pleasure in making peoples lives miserable.  He is not well liked and the troublesome teens in the town decided to start playing pranks on him, you know egging his house and such - they tormented him so much they drove him insane.

Insane - Absent Minded - Hates the Outdoors - Clumsy - Mean

This is Lilly Seacreast, she drove herself mad looking for her family which she lost.  A hurricane hit the town she was living in and all the survivors were evacuated to another town.  Lilly was knocked unconscious and lay under rubble for a few days before she came round.  In that time all the survivors had left including her family, and she was found wandering around the devastated town muttering to herself, she thought everyone had died and she was the only survivor.  She was too far gone to be reunited with her family apparently when they brought her here.

Insane - Absent Minded - Hate the Outdoors - Loser - Inappropriate

This is Lex Strong - Love and a woman drove him mad!!  He fell in love with a woman, Kandice, who married his brother, Chase, it was a bit of a love triangle so I have been told and she drove both brothers mad in the end.  Now because of it Lex is stuck in here and has developed commitment issues amongst other problems that he never had before - insanity being one of them.

Insane - Absent Minded - Hates the Outdoors - Neurotic - Commitment Issues

This is Patches Swan, now she apparantly is a total fruitcakse - she thinks she is an IF doll!!!  She says that her buddy, Devlin, turned her real, and she used to be an "imaginary Friend" doll.   Of course, nobody believes her, no sane person would!!!!!

Insane - Absent Minded - Hates the Outdoors - Clumsy - Childish

This is Rocky Giggs, I am told Time travel is his problem.  He says he had a time machine and he used to travel a lot into the past and into the future and his experiences while time travelling puddled his brain.   Of course, nobody really believes in time travel, they just think he is mad!!

Insane - Absent Minded - Hates the Outdoors - Neurotic - Dramatic

This is Viola Sharpe, they always say don't they chose your house mates carefully when you live in a shared house!!!  Viola had bad house mates and combined with other things, believing too much in the "hand of fate" and the wish fairy - she drove herself nuts.

Insane - Absent Minded - Hates the Outdoors - No Sense of Humour - Inappropriate

This is Coconut Rum Tartlet - unfortunately she was just born this way.

Insane - Absent Minded - Hates the Outdoors - Hot Headed - Coward

Unfortuantely this is a pretty run down place - there are eight of you living here and only five single beds.

There is only one small bathroom for you all to share

The kitchen area is very basic, no mod cons except for one cranky old washing machine.  There are only two dining chairs at the small dining table.

There is a tv room and a day room.  In the tv room there is an old cheap tv, a two seater couch and a small bookcase.  In the day room, there is a treadmill, an easel, a chess table, a guitar and a sculpting table.

And the hallway, which I have noticed seems to be where most of your house mates tend to stand for most of the day, I am not really sure why they all seem to congregate here - maybe you can work that one out!!

So this is your home for the foreseeable - until you can prove to your psychiatrist that you are sane enough to be released from this place.  
This is ridiculous, I shouldn't even be in here!!!
There are only a few things you need to know - all of your house mates are not allowed to leave the asylum grounds at any time, the big gates out front will not open for them because everyone is electronically tagged.
Is that what this thing is on my wrist.
Yes you all have one - yours will activate the gates to open twice a day for when you go too and from work, a car will transport you there and back.  The only time you can ever leave this place other than for work is if you go grocery shopping or too the bookstore, again you will be transported and supervised no wandering off anywhere, it is just not allowed.
What about if I don't want to follow their rules!!
Then your privilege to work will be taken away from you and then you will also be stuck in the asylum 24/7 for the rest of your life with no way out!!!
But what if I get friends I can go to their houses right?!
No if you have to socialise with anyone they come here.
This is not good you know!!
I know but your luckier than your house mates, at least you have a chance to get out - they don't - so Marty DON'T MESS IT UP!!


I am dong the Asylum Challenge the rules can be found here
I love the idea of this - have not actually seen one completed - so I just hope I get it right!!

Thank you for the loan of your sims and letting me change thier traits.  I have linked all borrowed sims to their creators on the Familiar Faces page.

I agonised over adding a few to the asylum because  I hate the thought of being cruel to sims that I really like but they are sims I just can not help keep playing with - mainly Lex Swan and Rocky Giggs - but I had to have something nice to look at in amongst all the insanity lol


Your feedback - good or bad would be appreciated.
Or just say hi to let me know you passed by.
Thank you for reading!!

Clone 1 - Chapter 9

Bebe is driving me mad!!
She keeps phoning me and asking me to hang out but when I get there she is not in.
Maybe you take too long to get there
No I go straight away - strange woman!!

Oh well, I get to hang out with Zac and Donte.
I wander why Apple doesnt live with his girlfriend and children?
I am not sure - they have three kids now did you know
They have a little girl called Twanna too now.

Playing chess with Apple in the park?
Yeah and he beats me everytime - he is a genius you know!!
What were you talking about the conversation looked interesting.
He was telling me that Toni won't get engaged because she has commitment issues, and that is why they don't live together!!
But she'll keep having kids with him?!
Yeah I know doesn't make a lot of sense does it!!

Now what are you up to?
I thought I would cook some hotdogs while I was in the park.

Everything was going great until I got interupted for someone to take pictures

When I got back to the hotdogs they were burnt - I was not impressed!!
I bet!!

That's pretty
Its common I won't get alot for this one!!

The fish in the park are pretty big!!
Yeah and I have caught some Angel fish too.

I am working on Pears book.
Is Dave supervising seeing as he is Pears boyfriend?!
No but I think he is reading it.

Finally finished his book - could of done it in half the time without all the interuptions!!
So how is it paying?
$256 a week.
You have got some weekly royalties coming in then now.
Yes $696 a week.

I thought outside the science fascility was bad enough but sleeping in the graveyard - now I really have seen it all!!!
I am sleeping the afternoon away so I can do some night fishing for death fish.

What's up with your face?
Zelda died
Oh I am sorry - your friends seem to be dropping like flies!!
Yes I noticed!!

I notice the Marmalade family are a the gym again.
Yes, I am best friends with Pear now since I did that biography for him.
He liked it then!!

Whatever is he wearing now??
I was wandering that myself!!

Another $1000 for ordering a drink at the Stoney Falls Country Club - thats $44,170 now in the family fund.

Another strong drink I see, watch you don't fall off!

Since when has Austin's wife Blueberry been a vampire?
She isn't
Well she has the vampire mark
I never noticed but she is definately not a vampire
That's strange!!!!

Not again!!
I haven't done it for a while.
Your in the Steel's bin again
I know not much in here 3 seeds, a tomato a teddy bear and a bottle of bubble bath.

This is Xandar Clavels house
I don't believe it!!
You know that death flower his Dad gave me $500 for, the death flower is in the bin!!
Anything else?
Just 30 scrap and bubble bath.

Marty someone is coming!!
Oh no - it Gage
Run before he gets a good look at you!!!  Told you you was going to get caught one of these times!!
Anyway what can they do take thier rubbish back??
They can publically disgrace you for rummaging in bins!!

Marty your garden is looking very neglected!!
I know, well it has nearly served its purpose anyway.
I am on $46,820 so I am nearly there.

What a difference a bit of water makes!!!
I know - but I have just wasted my time doing this!!
My agent just phoned I have got a cameo in a film  - that's $5,000

So you have done it!!!!

Yes - $51.920 - Finally this ordeal is over!!!
I am a little disappointed!!
This celebrity status of yours got you most of the money, it made your life a lot easier than it should have been!!"

So now you are a free man what are you going to do?
I am going to take Octavia's grave and am going to buy the house next door.
Taking a last look around?
Yeah I am not going to miss this place!!!

So do you have much money left after buying that house?
Not much but I can get a job now can't I.

It is nice finally to be able to cook myself a meal in my own home on my own cooker!!
You will soon forget your homeless life!!

So, I am off to leave you to get on with it.
Your going?
Yes -you can live the rest of this life without my interfering.
But I thought ....
Don't worry I will be back when its time for your next life to start.

So, have a nice life!!
I'll try!!


So that is the Homeless challenge over.
I am really dissappointed - I never thought about the Celebrity status when I started.
It felt to me like  he cheated his way to the $50,000 :(

Clone 2
coming soon!!

Clone 1 - Chapter 8

Eeew gross - kissing a ghost!!
So that's why you wanted to bring her grave back here!!
I didn't know this was going to happen!!

This looks so weird!!!
It feels weird!!

What did you just do???!!!
Asked her to be my girlfriend.
You idiot - she's dead - this relationship can never go anywhere - your mad!!!!

I got paid $3,000 for attending a book signing at the bookstore - that's $24,115 in the family fund now.
Great!!!  half way!!!
Not quite.
Close enough!!

Every time I come in here I gain another sketch

I thought you was giving up on the painting as you are really no good at it!!
I thought I would give it another go!!
Now I bet you wished you hadn't
$12 that's naff!!
That's because your paintings are naff!!

I came to the library and started on my third book, but I didn't get very far I kept getting interrupted.
So I noticed, your chatting to Pear.
He is a bookworm and he spends a lot of time in the library.
I had noticed that too!!

Oooww for a minute there!!!!!
Don't be stupid - that was just a friendly hug, after all he is my girl friends brother.
Oh please don't - she is dead Marty!!!!

What are you doing at the theatre?
$5,000 of promotional work doing a cameo in a play.

And another $5,000 for doing a cameo in a film at the film studio's
That's $10.000 I have gained today the family fund is $34,115 now.
Your celebrity status is making this too easy!!
Oh what, would you rather have seen me struggling to get this money?!
No - just I overlooked the celebrity status thing!!

I have maxed my gardening skill - and I have got a certificate to prove it.  I could have sold it for $600 but I decided to keep it instead - I'l have something to hang on the walls in my house when I eventually get it!!

What is wrong?
I don't believe it - I just heard something horrible!!
Well tell me then
Raymondo, he died in a fire last night!!
That's awful!!
Another one died too young and he was such a good kid too, its not fair!!!

Well this is a strange one - I have to deliver a death flower to Buster Clavell to earn me $500, what would he want a death flower for have you seen how ugly they are!!
He is trying to dodge the grim reaper!!
If you give the Grim Reaper a death flower when he comes to collect you, he will take the flower and go away without you, he gives you a little more life.
So if Octavia had got a death flower she wouldn't have died.
I have never seen a vampire use one, but I presume it would work the same for them, but yes if she had a death flower she would probably still be here!!"
WHY didn't you tell me this before - I could have saved her I have a deathflower!!!
Well I didn't know she was going to die did I!!!!!

It is great now that I can plant all of the seeds that I am finding!!! 
Your garden seems to be really coming on.
It is - you know I could stay here now and earn the rest of the money I need because I am earning over £1,000 a day on fruit and veg that I am harvesting from my garden.

I am getting really good money for these sea fish!!
I am not surprised the size of them.
I am close to maxing my fishing skills too.

You know it would really help if I could buy some fishing books so I could learn what baits to use - that way I would be able to cathch better and bigger fish!!
No Marty you can not buy fishing books!!!
Oh well, it was worth a try

So now are you now fishing in the graveyard.
I am trying to catch a deathfish and it is the only place I know where to find them.
You still have that robot fish to catch.
I am not so bothered about the robot fish it is the death fish that I really want to catch - they are worth a fortune too!!!!

Another book?
Yes my fourth one - this is going to be a good one I can feel it - $31 a chapter I am getting, that is if I ever get it finished keep having to stop to sign autographs and have my picture taken - these people are so annoying!!

Your "girlfriend" was out last night and you slept right through it!!
Oh no!
Yeah, she watched you sleeping for a while then went to sleep on the bench by you kind of cute really.
You should have woke me!!

Apple phoned me and asked me to hang out but I did not stop too long because it was getting late, he was tired and I had something to do.
I am bin rummaging tonight.
Oh no!!!!

Please tell me your not!!!  Thats the Marmalades bin.
Well I know they are in bed now.
That's bad Marty, your friends bin!!!

Not a good night tonight - out of the Marmalades bin I got 20 scrap and a duck and out of this bin I got a candle and another bottle of bubble bath.
I thought maybe you got lucky on the first night!!!!!!
It is probably the bins I picked - I am going to try again another night.

Trying to finish that book?
Yes, I need to get this finished before I can start on my next one - Pear Marmalade has asked me to imortalise him in print, he has read my other books and liked them and wants me to write his biography for him.
That sounds interesting!!
I just hope I can do it ok!!  Finished - I am getting $344 a week for this one - now to make a start on Pears book.

Agency work?
No  I am celebrating!!

With the few lots of $42 that I got from submitting a few of the chapters of Pears book, my Family Fund went to $40,023!!!!

So you just wasted the $23 on Baked Angel Food Cake!!!

Chapter 9
