What Does the Fox Say?

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.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.49.00 AM

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?

Emit: Hush.

Yttrium: Whatever. Got the book, now to go to the FU-

Yttrium: Turds.

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.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.53.37 AM

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. : /

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.54.12 AM

Wait… it’s… :O


Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.54.35 AM

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! 😀

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.57.21 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 10.59.22 AM

Oh, and I forgot to pay our bills.

Yttrium: I don’t mind; the repo guy is hot!

Just eat your cheese.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.00.03 AM

I think he got the telescope, which is fine because no one needs it for the logic skill at the moment.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.00.42 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.04.11 AM

Lena: Wa pa pa pa pa pa pow!

Not sure if it’s cute or creepy.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.05.51 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.06.50 AM

… or not.

Laurel: I feel tingly.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.07.10 AM

Laurel: I’m a cute ghost?

Yes. :’ )

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.07.38 AM

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.

Krypton: What??

Yeah, she was just heading off the lot to go on a date.

Krypton: … WHAT???
