Ooky Spooky

Happy Halloween, everyone! Or, if you don’t celebrate Halloween, happy NaNoeen! If you don’t celebrate NaNoWriMo… why not? : P

The family got a new house, since the old one borked big time.

Laurel: I like the light.

Yes, Laurel. Pay attention to the generic lights I bought, and not the beautiful (and expensive) windows and doors which are the reason that the house couldn’t be furnished.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.21.18 AM

Satan Lighting: Welcome to Midnight Hollow!

Holy shitake mushrooms!

Well, since it’s a weekend in this town and no one has anything to do, it’s time for the family outing. To the gym, as Krypton’s still working on his athletic skill.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.23.03 AM

Where we meet this lovely lady. The internet tells me her name is Marina Rosa Vasquez. She looks scary working out, plus she kind of looks like a vampire, although I’m pretty sure she’s not?

Marina: Feel the burn!

The burn of hellfire?

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.23.42 AM

Being also athletic, maybe, Strontium decides of his own accord to work out alongside his father.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.23.59 AM

While Yttrium does her homework. Even though she hasn’t been to this school yet, and therefore should not have those papers.

Yttrium: I’m not doing homework, I’m taking note of the odds of the Midnight Hollow horse races.

This game doesn’t have horses. You know that, right?

Yttrium: That’s what makes this so complicated. Now shh.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.24.10 AM

Niobium plays with her imaginary friend. Er… why can’t you be like your sister and bet on the horse races?

Niobium: You don’t like my dolly?

Well, we *do* have a full house

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.24.39 AM

Laurel started to play the guitar they had in the gym. She’s apparently good enough to play for tips?

Zirconium: Whatever. I sure as hell ain’t tipping her.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.24.56 AM

Rubidium: Must. Gain. Muscle.


Rubidium: My sunny personality is inevitably going to get me in a fight. I want to be prepared.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.25.10 AM

Strontium didn’t do much working out before he went downstairs to tend to Molybdenum. Who, last chapter, somehow became a day younger than his sister.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.26.29 AM

Feeling the burn?

Krypton: Yes. Can I stop now? I’ve been going for eight hours or something.

He’s powering through those skill points like a boss, though. I can tell you that.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.26.52 AM

Yttrium was the first one to head home on her own.

Yttrium: I was just staying at the gym until the house stopped being possessed by Lord Satan.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.27.03 AM

Back to work?

Strontium: Work out, take a break. Work out, take a break. That’s the best way to get fit.

I see.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.28.10 AM

Niobium’s heading home too.

Niobium: I heard the house wasn’t possessed any more!

Do I have an actual picture of you?

Niobium: I don’t think so?

Eh, heir vote’s up soon. I’ll get it then.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.28.41 AM

Rubidium’s on the guitar now. And the gym disappeared. It probably left because she’s got no talent with that thing.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.31.01 AM

So… we don’t have chairs at the moment. So this happened.

Krypton: Why is it that I try to eat on the toilet like a normal person and have to be interrupted because my daughter’s taking a shower in the bathroom?

Yeah, what a freak.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.31.25 AM

Zirconium: Dad, please leave.

Krypton: Fine. But I’m coming back for my soup. Don’t you dare touch it.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.32.14 AM

Laurel found her bed alright, without me even telling her which one to pick!

Laurel: Someone left a half eaten bowl of soup on the bathroom floor. Disgusting.

Krypton: I agree. I now realize that nachos and salsa are a much better meal for the bathroom.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.32.49 AM

The kids not so much with the beds, but I don’t really care about that.

Niobium: zzz… new house…. of the damned…

Yttrium: Hey, I picked the right color bed!

Yes, you did. I appreciate that.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.33.02 AM


Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.34.16 AM

Yttrium: Stupid baby waking us up at the crack of dawn.

I don’t think that was your little brother, dear. : /

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.46.06 AM

This is Cecelia Evans, and her brother Cornell. Strontium went home with them after school.

Cecelia: I like fires.

Kind of creepy, but then again Laurel was playing with fire CONSTANTLY in the first legacy… maybe Cecelia is spouse material?

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.47.05 AM

Meanwhile… actually not meanwhile, because Strontium’s back already…

Strontium: She tried to burn my hair.

… Rubidium came home with Joseph Doe.

Laurel: So… I like… um… partially cloudy? Because there’s sun and also clouds.


Laurel: I went for the safe answer to ‘what’s your favorite weather’.

Ah. The Doe family is like perfect, except the game description says the house used to have a basement?

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.47.36 AM

Niobium: I love you, dolly.


Niobium: But I don’t wanna go in Jenny’s house. She’s scary.

Jenny as in…

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.47.53 AM

Jennifer Doe?


Jennifer: *stepford smile* I have to be perfect… or else… đŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.50.17 AM

Zirconium: I’m gonna be a princess!

Joseph: You should focus on schoolwork like your sister.

Yttrium: Okay, if the odds for the horse made entirely out of orphan screams is…

Zirconium: *immediately stops the ‘royal court’ interaction* Whatever you say, Joseph.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.50.50 AM

Then she plays tag with him. Aw, someone has a little crush!

Zirconium: Yeah, and it’s my birthday tonight, too.


Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.53.13 AM

Joseph: Woo! Yeah weird girl I just met!

Zirconium: Soon he shall be mine, and we’ll dance at the prom…

I feel like prom in this town will feature pig’s blood.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 9.59.18 AM

But first let’s take a picture of Molybdenum, who is super adorable. He loves the outdoors, is over-emotional, and excitable.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 10.11.44 AM


Joseph: Why are you so hostile???

Oh, right. We wanted to see the twins?

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 10.16.54 AM

Zirconium is insane, disciplined, hot-headed, and athletic. So… she’ll probably learn martial arts and then use her training to beat up just about everyone.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 10.19.58 AM

Laurel: So… how about we all go to a ball game?

Rubidium: Um… I gotta do homework.

Yttrium: Um… you’re forgetting someone?

You weren’t made over yet.

Yttrium: Well I am now.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 10.28.18 AM

I couldn’t resist that hair. It just looked so good on her. And then I had to go all out Steampunk with her other outfits, too. Even though she likes green instead of brown. Yttrium loves the outdoors and is an excitable coward who is also clumsy.

We’ve got a few days until Rubidium becomes an adult, so heir vote will likely be next chapter! (!!!)

I think we can guess what happens in this chapter… jeez, not even a single generation gone by yet. But, uh… here’s something cool I found to make up for it! (I did, however, see that this was number 13 when I published it…)

And there’s a bunch of other videos on the channel, too. Since it’s called ‘Periodic Videos’ I was legally obligated to mention it.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.46.29 AM

Anyway, we left off with Strontium in a mood because his sister was in the shower and he wanted to do homework in the bathroom. So… we resolved the cliffhanger?

I’m sure you were all on the edge of your seats.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.46.59 AM

Rubidium: You know, mom, I wanted to commend you on putting off painting so long so you could actually pay attention to your kids. You’re not that bad a mom, after all.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.48.01 AM

Laurel: *immediately goes to painting*

Rubidium: I wanna do my homework, but Strontium’s showering!


We now bring you ‘Life Lessons from Rubidium’:

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.48.29 AM

Rubidium: Never go into politics, kid. You’ll never make it.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.48.49 AM

Rubidium: Or film. You’re not pretty enough for the silver screen.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.49.08 AM

Yttrium: Wow, Rubidium’s pretty smart, isn’t she?

Don’t listen to her, dear.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.49.27 AM

Rubidium: And don’t travel. Your plane will crash in a fiery blaze.

And that ends ‘Life Lessons from Rubidium’.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.50.45 AM

With few other career options, Yttrium turns to telling scary stories to her older brother. Next R. L. Stine?

Rubidium: Yes! Bathroom’s free for homework!

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.51.46 AM

Meanwhile, Zirconium’s using the chemistry table… you’re looking for heiress points, aren’t you?

Zirconium: Whatever gave you that idea?

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.54.08 AM

Zirconium: zzz… maybe I’ll take up sculpting…

Yttrium: … *sniff sniff* is something burning?

Screen Shot 2013-10-14 at 3.49.48 PM

I’m not sure what was going on when I took this picture or why I took it. Probably because everyone suddenly woke up and got out of bed all at once.

Screen Shot 2013-10-14 at 3.50.48 PM

Oh right, it’s ridiculously-early-breakfast-time.

Screen Shot 2013-10-14 at 3.51.00 PM

Yttrium: And I gotta get my early morning workout in.

You can’t use the treadmill yet.

Yttrium: Dammit.

Screen Shot 2013-10-14 at 3.51.46 PM

Laurel goes off to work. Maternity leave won’t save you this time!

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.46.33 AM

Rubidium: Shoot, I missed 4 AM breakfast time.

… Zirconium, take a shower please.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.47.25 AM

Focusing on athletic skills at the moment, because our next TH can play chess games with him if need be. I am determined to get this LTW if at all possible.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.50.15 AM

He got the other skill challenges, so the next one is jogging. Might as well work on that one, so he goes jogging around town.

Krypton: I feel so controlled.

Don’t worry, you’ll have your freedom… eventually…

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.51.02 AM

Strontium learns the joys of having lots of neat toys while he’s supposed to be doing homework with Gator.

Strontium: If I had one of these, I’d never stop using it!

That’s why we don’t have one of those.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.51.28 AM

And Mina’s going home with the twins… are there any other families in this town?

Yttrium: None that want to hang out with us…

Fair enough, I suppose.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.52.16 AM

Krypton: Stop that. Bad child. Don’t make me get the newspaper.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.53.10 AM

So she goes to do her homework. Like a good child. STRONTIUM.

Strontium: But… but… virtual reality…

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.54.01 AM

Strontium: See? I’m doing it!

Because the full moon came out and you don’t want the werewolves to eat you.

Strontium: … so? What’s that got to do with anything?

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.55.00 AM

Strontium: I need a drink.

Proof positive that this is still the Mendeleev family. They have a tendency towards alcoholism.

… Wikipedia says that Dmitri Mendeleev became a Doctor of Science because of a dissertation about “The Combinations of Water with Alcohol”. Huh.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.55.44 AM

Werewolf: You should really work out more! My Mina isn’t going to marry a skinny boy like you!

Strontium: But I’m hungry… and way too old for her.

You wouldn’t be hungry if you went for actual food instead of booze.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.56.48 AM

Strontium calls everyone home so we won’t have to deal with the curfew police.

Pay no attention to the zombie behind you, good sir. Your coward trait would not bear it.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.57.40 AM

And then a celebrity suddenly appears at our doorstep at two in the morning.

Celebrity Woman: It was either legacy family or zombies… I was actually thinking about going with the zombies…

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.58.17 AM

CW: Before I remembered how hawtt your torch-holder is!

Krypton: You’re not too bad, either.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.59.08 AM

CW: So if I moved in, you would need to make this a mansion. Just so you know.

Krypton: … right…

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 8.59.36 AM

Rubidium: Going to paint, mom?

Laurel: Going to give your cheating father a piece of my mind!

Zirconium: Why do I keep dreaming that I’m being burned?


Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 9.00.05 AM

Rubidium: Come on, mom… it’s not like he slept with her… or even flirted… it’s just a game code that makes everyone heart fart over everyone else.

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 9.02.46 AM

Yttrium: How dare you say that to mom! They were talking about moving her in!

Rubidium: How do you know?

Yttrium: I was in the background of that picture, thank you very much!

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 9.07.49 AM

And then one of the younger twins grew up. But only one. But sometimes the game does stuff like that, messing with the ages. Then I changed her clothes and this happened…

Um… maybe if I save and come back?

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 9.31.19 AM

Well, that’s… worse… Um.

I could use a backup file, but that would mean that everything in the chapter was basically for naught, and replaying things that already happened makes me angry. Plus I kind of jumped on this as an excuse. For what?

You’ll see. And can possibly already guess.

And we’re back. Rubidium, as usual, is the one caring for the toddlers. Her father’s working so they don’t lose the house (just kidding, that wouldn’t happen… the repo guy just takes toilets) and her mother is engrossed in her hobby. Anyway.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.05.47 AM

Molybdenum: How come you didn’t get put in the crib despite not needing a nap?

Niobium: ‘Cause sissy’s awesome.

Damn right she is! Awesome and lonely.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.06.34 AM

2 AM lunch break?

I think so, anyway… I need to start taking notes or something. : /

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.08.03 AM

Yttrium: I am a princess! Bow to me!

Rubidium: Um, yeah. No way, kid.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.08.54 AM

Niobium: NOW I’m tired!

Maybe if you slept at some point while you were in your crib the entire night… but I can’t be mad at him. He’s too young to know better.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.10.13 AM

Yttrium: Mom, you should really use a napkin…

Zirconium: Give her a break. She made that awesome painting on the wall.

Yttrium: Are we seeing the same painting?

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.10.43 AM

Laurel: Maybe we’ll throw a party for you on your birthday, Zirconium.

Zirconium: YES.

Yttrium: But we have the same birthday.

Laurel: Excuse me, I didn’t think my painting was ‘awesome’ enough to warrant a birthday party for you.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.11.39 AM

Later that day (like five minutes later):

Laurel: And then Zirconium said my portrait of your father was awesome!

Rubidium: … you know your kids’ names?

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.12.46 AM

Rubidium wasn’t going to school, and I didn’t want her getting in trouble so I sent Krypton to take her to class. Since he works in the same building and all.

Krypton: If you get grounded, Ruby, you might get the horrible disease your aunt has.

One of Krypton’s sisters sadly succumbed to the ‘sneakypants’ syndrome, in which a sim that has been grounded and sneaks out of the house (say, to go to SCHOOL) is forced to sneak everywhere for the rest of their natural life. For less than a dollar a day, you can help these poor sims live normal lives, just call…

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.13.35 AM

You were so close, Rubidium… I even held your hand (metaphorically) all the way to the school.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.14.12 AM

And then he goes home to find out that Strontium’s decided to stay home, too.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.14.52 AM

Strontium: I just wanted to skip school so I can play with my adorable little sister!


Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.15.38 AM

Strontium: And clean the sink for my beautiful and intelligent Player.

… you’re forgiven.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.16.34 AM

Did you even go to school?

Rubidium: No, but I wasn’t going to pass up a free ride home. I wonder why Dad dragged me out here.

I wonder…

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.17.37 AM

Zirconium: The werewolf kid followed me home.

… shouldn’t he be older than Rubidium, since he was a toddler before she was born?

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.18.11 AM

Laurel: Look, I’m cleaning the counters too! Fweee!


Laurel: You liked Strontium after he cleaned… I wanna be the favorite again. *pout*

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.19.51 AM

Yttrium: Hold on, gotta take this.

I doubt it’s more important than doing homework and securing a better future with your grades.

Yttrium: For your information, I’m having someone place bets for me down at the tracks.

Gator: Your kitchen is green like a tree.

Yttrium: Now, if I put $500 on a horse, and the odds are 20-1…

Strontium: Um… go away please.

… okay. : (

Bonding over chess. What a wonderful couple.

Laurel: Can I get back to the easel now?

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.22.56 AM

Strontium, please don’t block the child in between the dresser and the block table. Starving children is bad, and the child protection people might mistake him for a Mendeleev and pack up the other kids as well.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.25.51 AM

… why did I take this?

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.28.00 AM

Krypton quit because Laurel was going back to work and I wanted to focus on his skilling for a bit.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.31.13 AM

And he wanted his hair done differently for a mid-life crisis, so I made him attractively scruffy. :3

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.32.43 AM

Gator finally grew up! And brought this other guy with him.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.33.15 AM

I use Rubidium’s command (pretty sure I haven’t used it yet >_> <_<) to send her to flirt with him.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.33.42 AM

She agrees with me on his attractiveness and continues of her own accord. I doubt much can come of it with her on autonomy, but if she gets heir it might make it a bit easier, at least.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.34.08 AM

Homework party on the lawn!

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.34.21 AM

Strontium: So… you think you can be a movie star?

Yttrium: That’s the plan right now.

Yttrium: That’s why I don’t need school.

You still need to bathe, though.

Hey, guys, feeling a bit blah right now, so it’s the perfect time for Mendeleevs, aye? They always cheer me up. Usually. : P

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.08.03 PM

We left off with Krypton telling Zirconium a scary story at an inopportune time, because she’s supposed to be going to school the next morning and it is very late.

I’m not gonna lie, I have screenshots I took with the UI, one for each of the kids, so I can refer to which is which. Having twins in this legacy can sometimes be confusing, ’cause I’m not sure which is the ‘first’ twin and which is the ‘second’.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.09.13 PM

Zirconium: Help, sister! The enormous pile of dirty dishes has taken control of my hand! It wants to kill me!

Yttrium: *sigh* I may be an excitable coward, Zirc, but even I can tell that’s a lie.

Pile of plates: Yes, yessssss! After this one is killed, there will be only five more to off, then I shall be the new heir! Mwahahaha!

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.10.02 PM

Yttrium: Oh, Stars… or Stripes… you’re the only one who understands me. My sister keeps talking to inanimate objects and insisting they want to kill her so they can steal heirship.

Stars/Stripes: Yeah, your sister sure is weird, worrying about dirty plates, when it’s me you kids should be looking out for.

Um… *goes to map view to find a lot to drop off the IFs*

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.11.36 PM

I think Krypton’s favorite kid is Zirconium. Don’t quote me on this, though. If you’re gonna quote me, pick a more fun quote, like, um… “Dragons are like big ducks with scales and sharp teeth.”

Krypton: I was thinking we could go see a concert for the next family outing.

Zirconium: That’s cool, dad. I gotta pee.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.13.15 PM

The imaginary friend dolls now reside on an empty lot. Good riddance.

Yes. Yes you do.

I’m glad you invited a friend over so you could take a nap, Yttrium.

Yttrium: Hey, I’m tired… aren’t you just happy I’m not going to pass out on you?

I’d much prefer if you’d gone to bed at a reasonable hour last night.

Lucky is still here, by the way.

Rubidium: For my public speaking project, I’m writing about nature.

Lucky: Blah blah blah. My name’s Rubidium and I like nature and stuff! My nose is huge and I have no friends.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.16.37 PM

Rubidium lets off her stress from having a turd of an imaginary friend by playing with the babies. This one is Molybdenum. *checks* YES I WAS RIGHT!

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.17.25 PM

Mina: Psh, I’m so much better at public speaking than she is.

Purple Dress: Yeah, me too.

Mina: Um, no. You have no name and are therefore unimportant.

Zirconium: We’re learning about aquatic ecosystems. How lucky I have one growing right in the kitchen.

Yeah… someone should fix the sink.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.18.42 PM

Then Laurel has a birthday and proceeds to wake both of the girls on a school night. Yay! Normally, her full adult birthday wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but it means I get ONE. FREE. ACTION.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.20.02 PM

Um… how are you making the top bunk by smoothing out the bottom bunk?

Yttrium: As below, so above.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.21.13 PM

The babies screamed too much, so I moved the bed out to the living room.

Zirconim: Aquatic ecosystem!

Gotta fix that.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.23.03 PM


Um. Yeah. No.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.23.41 PM

Rubidium: What are you doing?

Zirconium: It turns out it wasn’t the plates, but the stink fumes that were plotting against us. So I must banish them.

Rubidium: How about doing that somewhere that I don’t need to pee.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.24.28 PM

Krypton’s gonna fix the sink as soon as Yttrium’s done with it.

Yttrium: But daddy, it’s like a water fountain.

Krypton: I know, sweetie, but our water bill is through the roof.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.24.34 PM


Um. Yeah. No.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.25.11 PM

Laurel: I can’t get to my easel because my son is in the way!

Strontium: I can’t get away from the easel because my mom is in the way!

Krypton: *waiting to pose for protrait*

Laurel if you drop the command, I swear…

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.25.39 PM

She manages to get to the easel without the command dropping from the queue! Aw yiss!

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.26.44 PM

Of course, after I get the painting started is when Laurel stops wanting to be glued to the easel every second.

Laurel: I want to spend time with my daughter.

Rubidium: I just wanna sit outside at the park or something.

Laurel hates the outdoors, but Rubidium loves them. xD

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.27.51 PM

And then it’s off to prom. I hadn’t even known that prom was coming up for her.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.28.37 PM

While that happens, Krypton practices chess behind the school. I think I had him do that so there’d be an adult on the lot when it was time for Rubidium to leave prom. That way, no curfew breaking.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.30.57 PM

While prom happens, the younger twins grow up, also. This one is Niobium! She looks like mommy.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.31.11 PM

Molybdenum! Is pissy.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.32.54 PM

And then! After prom! EVERYONE IS ASLEEP.

Except Niobium but do toddlers even count?

Yttrium: The plan to move this bed to the living room to avoid screaming has failed.

Anyway, Strontium ALSO had a birthday during prom, so let’s check it out.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.33.40 PM


One makeover and reset later:

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.37.51 PM

Aw yiss! He is good, perceptive, never nude, and athletic.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.38.23 PM

Two warring kingdoms try to make peace.

Yttrium: I, Princess Yttrium, declare these stink fumes to be safe and harmless!

Zirconium: And I, Princess Zirconium, know this to be a vile lie!

Stink fumes: No, Princess, listen to your sister… heh heh heh.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.40.03 PM

I send the family out for another outing, as promised, leaving Laurel alone with the toddlers. Toddlers don’t do anything interesting that they can’t do at home, and Laurel might work on that portrait if I put her in solitary. : P

Yttrium: Daddy, can we have a skeleton maid?

Krypton: Do the words ‘coward trait’ mean anything to you? Hell no.

Zirconium: Daddy, there’s a stink fume coming right for your head!

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.41.02 PM

And, what are you doing, Strontium?

Strontium: Reading a romance novel, since there’s basically no chance I’m getting a girlfriend without your help.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.41.12 PM

And you guys?

Twins: Pregnancy books.

Um… alright then.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.41.31 PM

Rubidium: Mind if I join you?

I thought this would be more eventful. : /

Stink: It will be eventful when I murder two heirs in one fell swoop!

Zirconium: Noooooo! I knew it was evil!

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.45.48 PM

Strontium: I don’t think the library is uneventful! I’m having a birthday! I feel like a man!

Um… no you’re NOT! *frantic reset*

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.46.14 PM

Strontium: No longer feel like a man. : (

You may not take shortcuts through puberty, mister. Bad. *swats with newspaper*

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.46.59 PM


It’s actually way below my normal portrait standards, but since we only had one chance…


Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.47.31 PM

This left Strontium as the only one out after curfew, since children just go home and I guess I brought Krypton home at some point? Oops.

Rubidium:  Don’t you oops me. This is my life you’re messing with.

… Is the fairy cop a man or a woman?

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.47.59 PM

It’s okay, fairy cop. You can be whatever you want to be.

I’ll take this time to admit I’ll select a non-TH sim in order to get to where they are more quickly for picture taking. I don’t give any orders and I don’t pay attention to wishes or needs, though. Unless it’s to laugh at the wishes they’ll never get or their moodlets or something. Ruby’s hungry, miserable, grumpy, grounded, and stinky… but having so much fun it should be criminal.

Warren: Actually, it is. New law.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.48.28 PM

Laurel: Young lady, I did not raise you to be a delinquent!

Rubidium: Like you raised me at all! Anyway, I was just reading in the library. I had no idea dad left, so I didn’t know I had to come home after curfew.

Laurel: That’s it, you’re grounded. No partying, no outings, and no going to school.

Rubidium: But…

Laurel: NO SCHOOL.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.49.11 PM

Rubidium: It’s okay, Niobium. You still love me.

Niobium: Although you’re practically the only one that raised me, we’re still just acquaintances. So no I don’t.

Rubidium: Darnit. Wait… how can you talk?

Niobium: … goo?
