Up All Night

(to avoid Lucky)

Last time on the Mendeleev Legacy, we definitely had some parenting fails… and, well, we’re going to have a few more before the chapter is over.

I guess it’s safe to assume that one of Lucky’s s traits is ‘Insane’.

Doors: You built the house wrong. : P

I know, I know. : /

Laurel: Hi baby!

Strontium: Oh, now you pay attention to me. : /

Lucky: Dammit, why can’t I peek on Ruby in the shower?

Go away, you creep.

We’ve started getting pranks popping up around the house. I thought they were Rubidium’s doing, but she doesn’t get the ‘prank’ moodlet after the prank is successful (I checked for curiosity’s sake).

Rubidium: Lucky did it!

I believe you, dear. That thing is evil.

After Krypton got back from work and Rubidium got back from… who knows where… Laurel and Rubidium had some mommy-daughter time. At first I thought it was cute that Laurel had asked Ruby to feel her pregnant tummy. Krypton didn’t think it was cute.

Krypton: I’m tired.-_-

But then Laurel kept asking again and again.

And then they talked about babies more.

Rubidium: You should buy them teddy bears so that they won’t be forced to play with evil dolls that come to life!

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.10.50 PM

They finally broke to go to bed at 2 AM on a school night. : /

Laurel: I’m lonely, hormonal, and I wanted to talk to someone about my babies.

Rubidium: I was stalling because I knew Lucky would be waiting for me to fall asleep. o_o

Krypton wants Strontium to grow up well. I doubt that he can teach the kid everything he needs, but we can at least attempt one.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.13.28 PM

When the city hall opens, Krypton had some sort of opportunity or another. : / I have no idea what it was anymore; it was the kind where you send the sim to a rabbit-hole and the game counts it as doing something, and why are they called rabbit-holes anyway?

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.13.45 PM

Laurel: Well, time for baby.

Of course it’s when Krypton’s out. Of course.

Meet little Yttrium Mendeleev. The Y is pronounced like ‘ih’ according to Dictionary.com, so it’s ih-tree-uhm. Yttrium is excitable and clumsy.

As the baby was being born, I was like ‘watch it be twins. just watch it be twins.’

And welcome Zirconium Mendeleev, who’s insane and athletic. Also, they both love green. One likes Irish Green, but for all intents and purposes they’ll probably be wearing the same colors, so let’s hope they’re not identical.

Krypton got caught in one of Lucky’s pranks. I’m assuming it was Lucky.

Krypton: Whatever, as long as my beard survives intact.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.21.55 PM


… At least not until the twins are older. Not dealing with two tots and a cocoon while I can only control one sim.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.22.57 PM

Krypton’s disgusted face amused me, and Laurel’s awesome painting excited me. They’re not too far from adulthood, so founder painting imminent? I hope so. We get one shot at this.

Let’s check up on the other part of the family, shall we? You can skip this part if you aren’t familiar with or don’t care about them. : /

Lacey invited her boyfriend Max over…

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.03.24 AM

And proposed.

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.03.47 AM

They had a lovely little wedding and Lacey moved out.

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.06.14 AM

Gayby died and now joins his parents Vaughn and Mordecai. He is survived by his brother Susan and his brother-nephew-son Joffrey.

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.06.40 AM

Susan’s getting pretty old too, and Joffrey’s moody. Also, Arsenic is still skilling his fishing up because I want to try to get him to level 10 of the science career.

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.07.15 AM

Lacy: Whoo! Birthday!

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.07.53 AM

Lacey is now an elder, and I let her keep her outfit that she picked. As a reminder, Arsenic’s still a young adult. : /

Sweetie Bot: Celebratory exclamation! The biological life form is nearer to termination than she was previously!

Screen Shot 2013-09-07 at 9.12.29 AM

I sent Arsenic to the elixir shop to find a skill or job boost potion, so why not mess with the alchemy station while we’re at it.

Arsenic: Don’t we have one of these at home?

Hush, you.
