This chapter was named after a guy I met on the Appalachian Trail once. If he’s reading it… which I doubt he is… Hi! I’m the girl who was sleeping on rocks. You traded sunglasses with our counselor.
I would have posted a chapter sooner, but I had a presentation on Tolkien that was supposed to last the whole class… the class that was cancelled due to snow. : /
Rhodium: So… science rules.
She’s sucking up for the heir poll that’s coming soon. (:O SPOILERS!)
Vaughn: Why is there a plastic flamingo in the museum?
As I said before, the art trip was boring, so the kids all went home.
Technetium: *ignoring flies* Shouldn’t you be painting? You’re artistic, right?
Palladium: I’m going to be well-rounded, so I have to work on chess, too.
3D HOLO chess, because geniuses can’t play normal chess anymore. What’s next? Fairy chess?
Palladium: Hush. I wear this to give others a false sense of security… and fairy chess is a thing I do, by the way. So you’re doubly obnoxious at the moment.
What I want to know is what is in those pillows that it can knock a robot made of metal off balance?
Oh, hey. Zirconium’s here. Niobium always shows up as paparazzi and Strontium shows up as Nervous’ coworker and the field trip teacher… I wonder why Molybdenum and Rubidium never show up.
Satan Light: MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE BEAST.
Palladium: Yes… bask in the glow of evil… :3
I forgot we had bills so the repo man came. He stole Emily’s charging station and I put it back when he was done.
This is unrelated (kinda) but I was playing another game once where they were just starting out and didn’t have much. There was a ladder up to the second floor, which was just a shell with a bed. I didn’t notice until the wife went into labor that HE TOOK THE LADDER. HE STRANDED HER UPSTAIRS!! D8
Okay, rant over.
Zirconium: So… getting bored with the legacy heiress bit?
Yttrium: Um… no?
I thought a mood light would be cute around the table. So everyone could be happy and stuff. :3 I wasn’t sure precisely what color was which, but I thought that pink seemed happy.
A little too happy…
Rhodium: What is this feeling, so sudden and new?
*hurriedly turns off lamp*
Llama: So there’s a teen in the house now…
And one more coming, since you interrupted between birthdays. Vulture.
… thanks, Palli.
I think at some point when I was messing with my mods I got rid of the ‘no auto read to sleep’ one. Anyway, Emily chose the mechanics book to read.
Palladium: Since we’re best friends, it’s only right that I fix her if she breaks. 🙂
She actually falls asleep after the story. 😀 That is, I’ve gathered, a rare occurrence in ISBIs.
Oh wait. That’s nervous.
And here’s Rhodium. Not pictured is that she came straight through that wall moments before.
I have better pictures of them later on with traits and stuff. Because like I said, heir poll.
The parents went on vacation a bit after this, so… enjoy?
Technetium: Remember, always eat your fruits and vegetables. It’s why I carry a bowl of salad with me all the time.
Oh dear, Techie…
I used Ruthenium’s teen interaction to possibly snag him a girl.
Vaughn was not pleased with the situation.
Vaughn: Um, I have a boyfriend? And he’s not you.
Ruthenium: *puppy dog face*
Ruthenium: But… you’re pretty…
Technetium: Maybe if I cover my face and do the problems by instinct, it’ll all be right! *shoves face in salad bowl*
Skill books for bedtime stories.
Technetium: And that is the recipe for salad. *spills bowl into lap*
Ruthenium: Tech, I’m not sure if my essay about an embarrassing moment will be good enough for the teacher…
Technetium: I’m sure you’re a great writer. Just let me have a snack and I’ll look over your essay. NOMNOMNOM.
Ruthenium: It’s just that… I wrote it about the time Vaughn rejected me after I was forced to kiss her by the narrator…
Technetium: Um… *pat pat* there there?
Palladium’s turning into a teen!
Rhodium: Ha ha! You don’t get to experience the first feelings of puberty until after your teen birthday!
Technetium: Time for school, guys. I’m sure leaving Palli home alone while she experiences her transition into teenhood won’t do anything to put her against us. She can navigate puberty on her own, no big.
I don’t count anything with the little orange circle thing. As I’ve seen it explained, that’s the player doing the action, like turning off the TV, and I can send any sim to the cake when playing as Yttrium. So I don’t count it.
I saved my good picture of her for the poll, so for now you can wonder.
I’m assuming that all of these came from pranks, since I didn’t see anyone wet themselves, and Palli was making new puddles as she mopped.
Ruthenium: Books! *little hologram hangs out around the speech bubble*
HOW IS THAT HOLAGRAM THERE?
Oh, good girl, Palli. :3
Good, eco-friendly, artistic, athletic.
Thinks she should be heir because “I’m obviously the prettiest. Come on, guys.”
Excitable, slob, hates the outdoors, bookworm.
Thinks he should be heir because he feels that men are underrepresented in the sims.
Absent-minded, star quality, inappropriate, artistic.
Thinks she should be heir because her hat and glasses combo is cool, and she’d totally blog about being in an ISBI and get a billion followers.
Hates the outdoors, genius, artistic, evil.
Thinks she should be heir SO SHE CAN TAKE OVER THE WORLD.
