Fortune & Romance - Interlude IV

Warnings: Sexual situations, macabre revelations

“Well darling, I don’t think you’ll be taking home the gold, but the Old Country judges gave that a 10/10.”

“It’s not funny, Mortimer.”


“Want me to help you work out your coordinates error? ...no?”


“I need a moment of solitude.”

Possess me


cell phone

The final bars of the song were drowned out by the MIDI version of ‘Eleanor Rigby’ beeping from Ichabod’s breast pocket. “Again?”


“I’m sorry, honey; I gotta take this one too.” The people around them were giving them looks for the annoyance, but no one thought anything odd of the situation.

“No, you don’t; it’s your night off!” Olive followed after him. He was hard to keep up with, with his long legs and no dress to weigh him down. “You don’t have to answer to anyone tonight.”


“Except my lovely bride?”


The phone had stopped ringing by now. “It’s the interns; they have a lot of questions. They’ll get the hang of it eventually but now they need all the help can get.”

“Let them figure things out for themselves. What’s the worst that could happen?”


“The apocalypse?” He winked and ducked into the garage.


She came in right behind him. “You promised things would be different this time!”

“Things are different.” He glanced around before shutting the door behind her, dropping his voice to a pleading tone. “Look, if I don’t call them back they’ll get suspicious. Gray’s already trying to turn them against me and I don’t want to fuel that fire. Not with DJ in the picture now.”


Olive sighed. “Please don’t take too long. You’re mine tonight. And his. But if you’re going to spend the whole evening with the ‘interns’, we might as well be here alone.”


“Just give me five minutes.”

“Fifteen so I won’t be disappointed.”


He dialed the numbers but didn’t hit send yet. “You want to do the honors this time?”


She smiled. “With pleasure.”

“You get way too much enjoyment out of that.”

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AISDF:JSDFKJDSF:JDK:SJF

Um. Wow. I was not expecting that at all! It's so clever and it makes so much sense! And the pictures here are gorgeous (as usual). Super excited for the next chapter now!

Haha, Kvornan - offering Bella a hairdryer and towel. While Kiernan obviously cares less and just want to take some pictures. Er, hope I didn't switch their names - the two of them confuse me sometimes. XD

DJ's little bone Xylophone is so cute! And in the second picture of him...is that girl in the blue dress spiking the chocolate? Lol.

Creepy how the statue turned to watch Bella. It's cute how Servo was in bat form on Nina's shoulder. :)

Ichabod being the 'spiritual guide' is quite clever, I picked up on it when I linked it to his last name - Specter. Maxis and EA are quite clever with names, I must admit. And you did such a clever job to link it all together! I miss all these things until I read stories of others picking it up. Haha.

Even I still mix them up sometimes, but you got them right!

Yep Titania was spiking the chocolate. While she was supposed to be watching the kid.

I'm excited to be able to include Grim in the story like this. I guess what I'm mainly trying to do is see how far I can "humanize" him and Olive (obviously literally in his case.)

Thank you for commenting!

Love this. You put so many details into every picture. Your way of explaining Ichabod as the Grim Reaper and Olive's penchant for murder is amazing. I suspected something, but not that.

Also much <3 for Jennicor's love dungeon
May. 20th, 2013 03:51 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D Glad you enjoyed it.
May. 17th, 2013 11:46 am (UTC)
So is Ichabod possessed with Grim Reaper?
May. 17th, 2013 10:02 pm (UTC)
Yep, but the original human who had that body is dead so he doesn't have to share it.
May. 17th, 2013 03:20 pm (UTC)
I love all the details you put into this. When you put that picture of Olive holding the scythe on tumblr I wasn't sure what to expect. As always I loved it. :D
May. 20th, 2013 03:52 am (UTC)
Thanks! I was hoping to throw in a twist for what she was doing with that thing. :D
May. 17th, 2013 05:00 pm (UTC)
His dead body on the floor at the end - :O! How strange that would be for Olive (and anyone else walking in, I suppose)
May. 20th, 2013 03:54 am (UTC)
Heh, yep. The Calientes did walk on him a couple chapters ago and assumed the worst. :)
May. 17th, 2013 09:17 pm (UTC)
So, was Ichabod an host? And was the Grim Reaper using his body temporarily?
May. 17th, 2013 09:43 pm (UTC)
Grim's using the body off and on to better spend time with his family. The original person it belonged to is already dead, so "Ichabod" is an empty shell in suspended animation when Grim is not possessing him.
May. 17th, 2013 11:43 pm (UTC)
I'm starting to wonder if Olive's other victims were similarly reanimated.
May. 18th, 2013 05:19 am (UTC)
That is a very good question about what it means for the rest of Olive's graveyard crowd.
May. 18th, 2013 02:06 am (UTC)
I was pretty close with some of my guesses! I loved it!
May. 20th, 2013 03:54 am (UTC)
Thank you! Good job with the guessing. I did try and drop some hints.
May. 18th, 2013 03:12 am (UTC)
Like others, I want to compliment you on the detail in this. That in itself can be very time-consuming.
The ending was marvelous. Not something I'd have thought of, but so logical now that I've seen it.
Now, then, what's the red thing in the floor next to the trash?
May. 18th, 2013 04:58 am (UTC)
Thank you! It is time consuming; I feel like I need to start moderating myself a little on that so I can move forward more. Glad you liked the ending, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. :D

That's a plasma fruit. It's what "vegetarian" vampires eat in TS3. It's really bright so I could see how it's a little distracting.
May. 18th, 2013 05:20 am (UTC)
Brilliant! I love how you've pulled the parts of Olive's story together :)
May. 20th, 2013 03:54 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D

Just what I was saying!
I've speculated at MTS that Grim and Olive were 'romantically involved', and this interlude just proved my point!

Now, where does she get angry and kill all those people to get him back? (as far as my 'meme' goes, when they break up, she goes on a killing spree to get him back, after having Nervous.)

Great plot weaving in, Skell!
May. 20th, 2013 03:56 am (UTC)
Re: Just what I was saying!
Heh, that sounds like an interesting theory! I'll be going in a bit of a different direction with them, hopefully something that hasn't really been done before.

Thank you for commenting!
May. 19th, 2013 04:55 am (UTC)
There are so many things to discuss in this little interlude. All the sexy times, Olive and Grim, Mortimer poking fun at his wife, but mostly his wife. Where is our dear Bella going? ;) Can't wait for the next installment as always!
May. 20th, 2013 03:59 am (UTC)
Heheh, both Mortimer and Grim got themselves into a bit of trouble with their wives this chapter. ;) That's a very good question about Bella!
May. 20th, 2013 09:10 pm (UTC)
I would have never thought Ichabod to be the Grim Reaper, but it makes sense now that I think about it. I love love love this story, even if it took me a few days to catch up.
Jul. 27th, 2013 08:00 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad you liked the twist.
May. 21st, 2013 09:48 pm (UTC)
The anon comment you just got? That was me. Sorry! I didn't realize I was logged out!

And the actual comment:

Ha ha, I knew it! Ichabod is the Grim! I love it!

Although I definitely didn't imagine that Ichabod's body is in suspended animation while Grim uses it for ... visitation? I don't know what you'd call it. I just thought that the Grim Reaper could magic up his own body when he needed one.

And I have to ask ... how do you manage to get the Grim Reaper in a position where you can take photos of him doing things like kissing Olive? I know you can unlock his outfit in CAS -- is that what you do? Make a CAS sim and put him in that outfit for photo purposes?

*will want to have Grimmy walking and talking and not killing people in her own story in the not-too-far-off-future*
May. 22nd, 2013 12:55 am (UTC)
Thank you! I figured the final shot would be the most surprising part of the reveal. :D

I use this hack which allows you to put any adult sim in the reaper outfits just by clicking on them: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=171110

Elders can't wear it, but I needed Ichabod to play his "body" double anyway. The scythe is part of Jixs' prop hack on MTS, which you probably already have.
