Back to the Front to the Future

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.08.37 AM

Now that Laurel died, the house seems very… very… empty.

Nervous: I need a drink.

First of all, I can’t do that. Second of all… no. At least one of you needs to stay somewhat sober to take care of the baby. Now man up.

Ohey, the fox thing floats on her shoulder. And you’re not looking too upset about this death thing, either, Yttri.

Yttrium: I’m keeping a smile on for the baby.

Oh, is that it?

Yttrium: Also the drinks help.

Krypton gets asked out on a date later that day. By Olive. Who you might recognize as being Nervous’ mother, even if you don’t have this town and just know her from Sims 2. I expected him to die on the way there, like… his age bar’s full and he’s going on a date with Olive Specter.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.11.20 AM

At the graveyard.

Krypton: You know, this is in poor taste, considering what just happened in to my wife. In more than one way.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.15.11 AM

Yttrium: Must… keep… smiling… for… baby…

Baby’s tired too. Yttrium and Technetium are psychically linked or some such. I swear.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.15.31 AM

Of course, Yttrium goes into labor right as she’s going to bed.

Yttrium: Shit, I lost a friend! Who is it?

Hell if I know.

Of course, since I wanted a little girl baby to call Ruthie, Ruthenium is a boy baby. But you know what? Screw that and gender norms and everything. We’re calling him Ruthie. SO THERE, PSYCHIC GAME. That’s what you get for trying to ruin my adorable nickname plans!

Ahem. Ruthie hates the outdoors, and is excitable.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.17.00 AM

Bear: And his favorite color is lime! 8D I’ll have someone to PLAY with me again! *wipes little stuffed tear away from his eye*

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.17.20 AM

Yttrium: I can’t put this baby in the crib ’cause there’s another one in the way. Delete it with a cheat or something. : /

Um… no. I’m going to go ahead and say that it’s the sleep deprivation talking like that, right?

Yttrium: Sure. And the fact that I’m STILL IN LABOR. The baby is in the barrel and READY TO LAUNCH.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.19.40 AM

Hey, whaddaya know. The newborn play mat thing is useful for something.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.19.54 AM

And then Rhodium is a girl. Just to mock me. She’s an absent-minded artist.

Yttrium: I can go to bed now?


Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.29.17 AM

So before Yttrium can get up and have me send her to the future, Techie grows up. She is now eco-friendly, athletic, and artistic. I may have been a little overeager to use the Future hair and clothes, but I think she looks cute. I decided why not bring her along for the future trip as well.

Which is my segue into this, since I didn’t get a picture of them going INTO the vortex thing:

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.35.41 AM

Yttrium: Look out, future! Mother of twins coming through!

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.36.04 AM

Technetium: Sh… sh… It’s okay, Vaughn. We’re okay.

Vaughn: Why the hell are you treating me like a baby. : /

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.37.34 AM

So yeah. Here we all are. The future. And stuff.

Technetium: Mom, do people carpool in the future?

Yttrium: Hell if I know, but we are. Going to go visit some descendents I somehow know that we have.

Technetium: Yay! Carpooling!

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.38.27 AM

Future Guy: Hi, my name is Phil…


Sorry. I’ll… um. Be over there.

Yttrium: Hello. My name is Yttrium. Mendeleev. I’m like your ancestor or something?

Phil: Oh, that’s good. I was worried you were like my half sister or something. With the resemblance and all.

Yttrium: Does this mean that we complete the legacy and make it all the way to the end of the periodic table?

Phil: Spoilers.

Then Yttrium goes off and does stuff that I didn’t take pictures of. It was just meeting more people, really.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.40.29 AM

Technetium: What should we do first in the future, Vaughn? See if the cars are powered by sunlight?

Phil: Um… shouldn’t you be going with your mother?

Technetium: Don’t tell your great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother what to do!

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.40.57 AM

The family size is apparently ‘average’ right now. Oh, and we’re ‘destitute’. Interesting.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.43.09 AM

Lady: :O WHA WHA WHAT? It’s Yttrium Mendeleev! Act cool, act cool!

Oh right. Yttrium’s a celebrity, so I guess this would kind of be like us meeting… I don’t even know… Jane Austen? Although I’m sure there were tons of celebrities in the past we don’t even remember, so why meeting Yttrium Mendeleev would be a big deal…

But really I took this because I love her hair.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.47.00 AM

Nervous ends up talking on the phone with one of his descendents.

Nervous: And then she just up and died! … What? … I mean, yes, I guess it makes sense that this is ancient history for you…

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.47.21 AM

Technetium: I found a pool.

That’s nice.

Technetium: It’s a waste of water and our natural resources.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.53.16 AM

Yttrium went to the robot store, and made this with some sort of machine.


It’s called a nanite but I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.54.44 AM

Then I saw what I’m pretty sure was a robot shopping for ANOTHER robot to fulfill her sexual needs. Sexbotception, if you will. This one, apparently, did not fit the bill.




Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.55.57 AM

Oh, and we got a future dress. And a robot. She is a self-aware robot, so I let her name herself. So meet Emily. Emily was, as far as I can tell, built as a nanny bot, but we just got her because of the cool factor.

Yttrium: And so I can drink without getting nagged about how the babies need me.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.56.29 AM

She’s a shiny one.

Emily: Electronic Mechanical Individual Looking after Young is ready for duty.

Makin’ bacronyms like a boss.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.07.52 AM

For those who are interested, Emily is a high tech bot who is a solar powered, sentient robonanny with friendly functions and the capacity to love. Which means she’s just an adorable bot who will hopefully get on great with the kids.

I mean, we know Technetium will like her with the solar power, at least.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.08.25 AM

Nervous: I found a small child.

Girl: Why are you waiting outside my house? o_o

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.09.28 AM

Since it was a wish of Yttrium’s we check out the legacy statues. I’m making it a personal goal to get one of these to have a family member on it. Because it’s called a legacy statue. Come on.


Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.10.04 AM

Technetium: Beam me up, Scotty!

Oh, and Molybdenum and Niobium.

  1. :O HER NAME IS EMILY! Ou we share the same name! Gah I just got Into the Future today and it’s AMAZING! I was testing it on a random family and not the Acos (my legacy family) but wow I never really registered that they were called Legacy Statues.

    Also, just wondering- Do you know about the trick to guarantee the gender of the child? Because your game seems to always pick the wrong gender for you:P

  2. Phil (of the Future) has Techie’s bright purple eyes. I love how the game decides what genetics are going to continue – almost always the weird stuff, which is fun.

    Can’t wait to see what the twins look like – did they get the blue Mendeleev hair? That’s been in the family for a while now…
