Last chapter, Laurel Grisby moved in, so it’s now time to start the actual ISBI portion of this thing.
Sadly, we’ve already gotten a fail, but moving on!
Having more than one person in the household already causes problems. Laurel decided to start watching television, and also to stand right in front of the mailbox so Krypton can’t pay the bills. I decided to use this time to build the house, since there wasn’t anything I could do about moving Laurel and nothing else for Krypton to do.
Bathroom, woo! The Mendeleevs are living large!
Bedroom/living room/kitchen. Honestly having a separate bathroom is an achievement at this point. Notice that the television was still outside at this point, because Laurel wasn’t letting me move it.
I forget if Laurel got bored herself or if I had Krypton talk to her, but either way the television was moved inside, and the mailbox cleared. I also managed this:
Krypton: Would you consider giving up vampirism?
Laurel: Sure! All I need to do is go to the archive place by the library.
SWEET. Just one command. That is precisely the number of commands I can give her!
So I sent Laurel to the archives or whatever it’s called.
Looks like the television was still outside at this point. Oops. It gets moved inside very quickly, though.
Behold! Human Laurel! Wow, usually when I turn a vampire into a human, it’s horrible and glitchy and they end up having some sort of vampiric feature left over, like fangs. But everything turned out alright!
And then when I open the game again… not so much. *reset*
Laurel is still considered human, but she still has the vampire pallor going on.
Making salad, since I don’t trust Krypton not to set everything on fire, pass out from fear, and die horribly in flames.
Laurel didn’t make dinner because she was too busy skilling… like a vampire.
This bodes poorly.
Took a plumbob shot because I wanted to be up front about watching Laurel’s motives, which IS against the rules, but she was being glitchy and I wanted to see what was up. She has a thirst bar still, and there is no red or green or any color in it, and eating does nothing to get rid of her moodlet. Her other need bars are green instead of vampire purple. I think she had the thirst moodlet rather than hunger, but I’m not entirely sure. She didn’t have an option to take plasma juice from the fridge, so I have no idea if that would have helped. : /
After I cheat away her moodlet, hoping things would resolve themselves at some point, Krypton finally has a chance to get close to his new wife.
Laurel cooks more food that does nothing to help her hunger. I cheat away the moodlet and continue to reset her a bunch, hoping that will fix it.
All the while growing a bit annoyed that Laurel had to turn into a vampire while Krypton still needed to age to an adult.
Krypton loves his wife even though she’s glitched and would probably starve to death if I wasn’t blasting away her moodlets and feeling like a cheat the whole time.
It’s not my fault. : (
Laurel complains about money. Or something.
You’ll have to forgive me about not getting that into her, since the title already gives away the fact that she is not long for this world.
Krypton goes to get a job in athletics. I figure it’ll bring in money and let him work on his LTW at the same time. He can work on his logic at home with Laurel or, in the future, the kids, which has the added bonus of boosting relationships.
This scary lady across town wants to marry Krypton. She knows that Laurel is too glitchy to be a good legacy spouse.
Vampire girl: OMG! It’s Krypton Mendeleev! If only I were old enough to be his wife!
Krypton then is sent to research the supernatural.
I think I might have believed that would actually help. Or something.
More food that does nothing.
Proof of Laurel’s messed-up biology.
So I gave up, got rid of the old Laurel, and then changed the one I had saved to human in CAS and merged her into the household. So basically set it up to how it should have been without glitches (I changed the family funds back to what they were before) except now Laurel and Krypton don’t know each other and aren’t married. And Laurel is no longer pregnant with Rubidium.
Unfortunately, I decided this in the middle of the night, and they’re both growing tired. But we have one double bed and Laurel won’t be able to sleep there if she’s not at a high enough relation with Krypton.
They seem to be friendly enough, though.
Until Krypton slaps her because apparently visiting the archives makes sims do stuff like that. : /
So all the green in their relationship went away, and I was forced to buy a sleeping bag for Laurel.
Krypton will be trying again tomorrow. *sigh*
