Hey, guys, feeling a bit blah right now, so it’s the perfect time for Mendeleevs, aye? They always cheer me up. Usually. : P
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’.
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!
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*
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.
The imaginary friend dolls now reside on an empty lot. Good riddance.
The kids brought home from school Mina and… um… someone else.
Purple Dress Girl: I know when I’m not wanted.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Um… how are you making the top bunk by smoothing out the bottom bunk?
Yttrium: As below, so above.
The babies screamed too much, so I moved the bed out to the living room.
Zirconim: Aquatic ecosystem!
Gotta fix that.
Um. Yeah. No.
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.
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.
Um. Yeah. No.
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…
She manages to get to the easel without the command dropping from the queue! Aw yiss!
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
And then it’s off to prom. I hadn’t even known that prom was coming up for her.
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.
While prom happens, the younger twins grow up, also. This one is Niobium! She looks like mommy.
Molybdenum! Is pissy.
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.
One makeover and reset later:
Aw yiss! He is good, perceptive, never nude, and athletic.
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.
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!
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.
And you guys?
Twins: Pregnancy books.
Um… alright then.
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!
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*
Strontium: No longer feel like a man. : (
You may not take shortcuts through puberty, mister. Bad. *swats with newspaper*
IT. IS. GLORIOUS!
It’s actually way below my normal portrait standards, but since we only had one chance…
IT. IS. CLOSE ENOUGH.
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?
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.
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.
Laurel: NO SCHOOL.
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?
