O Great and Powerful Expansion Pack… please do not crash my game. Please?
Yes, I got the future thing for Christmas! I could have been smart and at least tested it with another sim family, but I’m not smart. And the Mendeleevs are, like THE family for trying out sci-fi things. Just saying.
So out of the ground, with a bunch of rumbling and camera-shaking, comes… the Claaaaaaaaaaaaw!
Yttrium: RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY! *runs straight to claw*
Your directions are a little off, dear.
Nervous: Dammit! Why do time machines pop out of the ground every time I try to feed my daughter?
Laurel: It’s been a bit cloudy, don’t you think?
Yttrium: Mom. A time machine appeared in front of the house. And you want to talk about the weather?
Laurel: Well, you’re just eating a sandwich
Yttrium: Can’t greet time travelers on an empty stomach! What if sims evolved into giant sandwiches in the future?
Yttrium: Dear viewers, please forget about the past couple pictures and focus on how EPIC I look standing here.
She does, really.
Emit: Hello! I am Emit Relevart!
Yttrium: Holy shit, that’s ‘Time Traveler’ with the letters switched around!
Emit: Shhh. Let me finish! Is everyone so rude in the past?
Yttrium: Pretty much.
Emit: I come from the future, to prove that bow ties really ARE cool.
Yttrium: Noted and verified. I’m gonna need a drink after this.
Emit: Here’s an almanac.
Yttrium: This doesn’t have anything about events, weather, or future culture at all. : /
Emit: Almanacs have changed in the future.
Yttrium: But you still have books?
Yttrium: Whatever. Got the book, now to go to the FU-
Emit: You can’t go into the future when you’re pregnant. The baby could end up with a time head.
Yttrium: What’s a time head?
Emit: It’s… unpleasant.
Well, might as well pass the time until she gives birth playing with what I’d wanted to test out before I knew I’d be getting Into the Future. So we’ll make some toys with the machine! 😀
Creation: *Somehow turns out more terrifying than IFs*
So then I looked around at the new items.
Yttrium: I can haz?
… not yet anyway. : / But I did get a thing called a holo disc, which pops out a little holographic pet. I got it because I was there for the Tamagotchi craze. I think I had four or five. : /
Wait… it’s… :O
Lena: RING DING DING DING DINGA DINGA DING!
You can talk to it though, unlike a Tamagotchi.
Setting all the future/tech stuff aside, Laurel is SO CLOSE to maxing her painting skill! 😀
I’m assuming that giving away simoleons boosts your relationship or something. But do you necessarily have to win the lottery? What if you’re just super rich? Hm. I might test that out at some point.
Oh, and I forgot to pay our bills.
Yttrium: I don’t mind; the repo guy is hot!
Just eat your cheese.
I think he got the telescope, which is fine because no one needs it for the logic skill at the moment.
Look at all the wedding gifts! Someone gave us a future chess board, too.
Oh, and Yttrium made a baby mat. Technetium can’t do anything with it so we’ll see what happens when the new one is born.
Lena: Wa pa pa pa pa pa pow!
Not sure if it’s cute or creepy.
And we’re still doing the winery thing whenever I notice that Yttrium has enough fruit.
Then Laurel got a call to go on a date. I didn’t see it was a date until I hit the yes button, but that’s alright. She can go out if she wants.
… or not.
Laurel: I feel tingly.
Laurel: I’m a cute ghost?
Yes. :’ )
Death: Next time, try to die inside so you can see me.
I just realized as this was happening that the family is kind of sort of incestuous, with the theory of Nervous Subject being the son of the Grim Reaper and all. I think that would make Yttrium his great-great-great-great-great-grandniece. Or something.
Laurel managed to get the medium gravestone, which is pretty impressive considering that a good number of my sims from my legacy got the worst gravestones, and I could CONTROL them.
Krypton: I heard some ominous music. What’s going on?
Your wife died.
Yeah, she was just heading off the lot to go on a date.
Krypton: … WHAT???
