Raising a Stink

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’.

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*

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.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.14.51 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.15.28 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.16.05 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 4.17.48 PM

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

BAHAHAHAHAHA!

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

BAHAHAHAHAHA!

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

Um…

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. IS. GLORIOUS!

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

IT. IS. CLOSE ENOUGH.

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?

  1. Awh Rubidium is the cutest! Question: Are you going to put a downloads page and an index on this blog as well? I love these sims so much; I’d love to download them!

    I adore the twins as well… I literally adore every child in this ISBI, and the adults as well. Your ISBI is actually going very, very well, usually ISBIs have a lot more negatives than your’s.

  2. Just starting this legacy, and I’m absolutely loving it so far! I think Ruby’s my favorite. Poor girl, having no friends 😦

    Where did you get Yttrium’s Beast Boy shirt? It’s adorable!
