Hi Ho Silver

He died as he lived. Skilling.

He finally stops and lets Death catch him when he went all the way around the house.

In other news, I learned that sims can take photo booth pictures autonomously! πŸ˜€

Yttrium: That Mitchell guy is hot…

And why is he here, you ask? If you said ‘because it’s time for a birthday party’ you are one hundred percent correct! We invited all of the Mendeleevs and then some.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.42.37 PM

Technetium: Look how adorable I am. I bet I would have been an awesome heir.

Probably. But you all would have been awesome heirs. Such is my dilemma with you Mendeleevs.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.43.15 PM

Zirconium is an elder. And she brought nachos.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.44.05 PM

Yttrium’s time as an adult is limited… actually, she should probably be an elder too, if her sister was.

Hm… I thought I clicked the cake option for Silver.

Yttrium: You did, but I’m reading.

… great.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.44.59 PM

So we can’t have the birthday for the BIRTHDAY party until Yttrium finishes her book. That’s just swell. At least the family is back so I can watch them for fun until Yttrium gets off her behind and does her job.

Niobium: This party would be better with a disco ball.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.45.18 PM

 

Molybdenum thinks the party is just fine, so long as we have a doll house for him to play with.

 

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.45.36 PM

Technetium entertains herself with our karate dummy while Palladium SLAPS HER AUNT WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT.

Mitchell: *steadfastly refuses to look at daughter while getting book*

I really dislike this guy.

Yttrium: Okay, I finished my chapter… mmm. This incense is lovely.

Get. Baby. To. Cake.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.47.58 PM

Yttrium: Okay, everybody. Birthday time!

Rhodium: Wow, Palli picked out a loser for the father of her firstborn!

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.48.21 PM

Mitchell: *toots horn*

Werewolf: BOOOO! He’s just pretending to care because he SUCKS.

I like this werewolf guy.

Silver grows up with the adorable trait. She has her dad’s eyes (maybe?) and her mom’s hair. And a face.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.52.28 PM

Silver: Caaaaaar!

Good girl. Test out those new toys without me telling you to.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.54.54 PM

Silver: Dance party!

Palladium: … good job.

Why are you upset?

Palladium: I kind of wanted her first word to be ‘crime’ or ‘murder’ or something. Not ‘dance party’.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 5.58.28 PM

Adorable sleeping baby is adorable. I have the music set to kids so Palli might have multiples, and Silver can still sleep through it.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.01.17 PM

Palladium: Hey, look. I’m pregnant.

*whistles* I had no idea. How interesting.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.08.24 PM

Silver continues to be my awesome beta tester without making me control her to do so. The drum is adorable.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.08.36 PM

Silver: I’m gonna piss off mommy at two in the morning!

Precious.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.09.12 PM

Palladium: I did it! πŸ˜€

… again, please. I’m not trying to be picky with these portraits but I can actually tell you to make another. So make another.

 

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.10.52 PM

Palladium: … nya?

Acceptable.

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 6.11.11 PM

Which means more points for portraits! Yay! We’re so on top of things in this ISBI.

I keep trying to set it so the elders sleep in their room rather than Palladium’s, but no matter what I do I seem to find one of them sleeping in the pink bed.

Yttrium: I’m not an elder. : (

You will be, love.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.48.40 AM

Palladium: Maybe I should be working on my painting…

Yttrium: Person person minus. : /

I might be able to get Yttrium to paint it if her level is high enough as an elder, but Palladium is artistic…

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.51.06 AM

And pregnant!

Palladium: You already showed them that I’m pregnant. : /

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.53.02 AM

I read that UL gives new quick meals, so I had to get a microwave and try some. One of the foods is ramen, but I’m in college and eat that like 3 times a day (not really) so I went with popcorn instead. Plus I wanted to see if the popcorn would ‘pop’.

I’m pretty sure it didn’t. And that putting popcorn into a bowl before popping it would result in popcorn EVERYWHERE.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.53.23 AM

Palladium eats popcorn with a spoon.

Palladium: Don’t make fun of me just because the game code people screwed up.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.55.30 AM

Then I send Palladium to a bar for reasons I’m not quite sure of. I think I just wanted to pop her in the motive mobile so she would skill more rather than passing out. Then I got her a sketch pad.

But the real point of this is baby abandoned on the floor of the bar.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.55.51 AM

Palladium: *sketches bar baby* I need to catch the despair in his eyes.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.56.13 AM

Baby: Yo, if I gotta be layin’ here, can’t I at least get a cocktail?

Palladium: This baby just got, like, three times more interesting.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.57.19 AM

Why’d you move?

Palladium: So when you took a screenshot my body would block the screaming baby… which I have nothing to do with.

Of course you don’t.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.57.57 AM

Palli is a lovely artist.

Palladium: I want a caaaatttt.

Sure, we can get a cat. As long as you’d rather have a cat than be able to move or live or anything.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.58.38 AM

I was going though my uncontrollables’ inventories to see what could be sold. Nervous has 4 of those graveyard pictures, for some reason.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 8.59.53 AM

And he got a promotion

Nervous: Check and mate! My daughter is not going to outdo me.

*cough* Yes she is. *cough*

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.18.12 AM

Palladium wanted to hang out with her baby daddy, and he threw a party right after, so why not? Even if it is a swim party without anywhere to swim.

Palladium: Where’s Mitchell?

Not here.

Palladium: … seriously?

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.19.48 AM

He comes fashionably late to his own party. I wish sims would stay in their homes when they’re having a party there. For serious.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.21.12 AM

Palladium: Aren’t you, like, engaged or something?

Mitchell: Yeah, why?

Palladium: … no reason.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.21.54 AM

Bow chicka wow wow?

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.24.25 AM

Ellie would be proud.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.26.17 AM

And then the baby came.

Palladium: D8 I want spaghetttiiiiiiii!

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.26.45 AM

Yeah, don’t use the motive mobile to go to the hospital. Or even the taxi. : /

Palladium: I have to prove what a BAMF I am.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.27.03 AM

You know how all the sim parents want to snuggle or play with their new babies? Or even hold them? Palladium wants to text her new daughter.

I don’t remember Silver’s traits at the moment. She likes lavender, though.

I try to invite Mitchell over, but he stays outside and gets sketched.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.36.34 AM

What’s wrong, Palli?

Palladium: I had a kid out of wedlock so the entire town hates me now.

Oh, right. Completely forgot about that little gem of the celebrity system. : / Palladium can be a criminal, and there’s a guy in town who kidnapped someone, going by the family description, but heaven forbid Palladium has a baby out of wedlock! THE HORROR.

You’d think the people of Midnight Hollow, at least, being so dark and alternative, wouldn’t care.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.38.35 AM

I’m opted out of celebrity system, and have been for who even knows how long, too! : ( I wish there was an option to drop off the face of the earth or something. I’m sure there were some celebrities from maybe ten-twenty years ago that no one cares about anymore.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.42.37 AM

So in order to get Palladium pregnant, as the entire town pretty much hates her excluding Mitchell and a few family members, I send Palladium to China.

Palladium: It’s kind of a tradition in this family.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.43.41 AM

This guy’s name is Bao or something. No idea what his last name was, but they were attracted and Palladium was able to befriend him quickly thanks to her charisma skill.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.44.46 AM

Going in for the kill!

Palladium: And gaining some more skill, too! : D

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.46.38 AM

And then Palladium gets impregnated with… um… Cadmium? And hopefully more than that, because I want to have a big-ish generation without keeping Palli away from her LTW too much. Plus I realized that we’re pretty close to the Lanthanides at this point. Pretty exciting stuff.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.48.21 AM

Afterwards, Palladium sketches Bao naked. You don’t actually get to keep the sketch, booooo. I get that sims can’t show that stuff, but I think it would be hilarious if it was, like, a sketch of a generic person with a HUGE box to cover the whole body, like the pixelated censor boxes that actually cover the sims. They already paint plumbobs, why not be even MORE aware that they’re in a game?

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.49.21 AM

Bao won against Palladium 2-1, even though I think Palladium’s a higher belt than him?

Palladium: I went easy on him.

Sure.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.52.16 AM

This is to show Palladium’s various love interests, all in different worlds. I doubt that Bao will ever be able to come to Midnight Hollow because of the visitor glitch that Paul brought on. Also, Emily still exists even though I uninstalled Future in favor of SP?

Also, Palladium has the ‘manipulator’ reputation now.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.54.05 AM

Today I learned that the ‘sketch’ option is not a valid replacement of painting portraits. Although her eyes stand out crazy well compared to everything else in the picture.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.55.08 AM

HI ZHAN.

Zhan: … do I know you?

In an alternate timeline, yes!

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.55.32 AM

So of course I had to send Palladium over to meet him…

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.56.24 AM

No! Bad incest!

Palladium: I’m pretty sure it’s less incestuous than Mom and Dad. More distance between us.

Ew, no. Zhan’s not going to be a father for this generation.

Palladium: He’s an asshole anyway. : /

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.58.33 AM

So Shing is dating Adaeze, the mother of Mulan, in this save. And Zhan is dating Biyu, who is the woman that Mulan was randomly staying with after Adaeze died. This is happening while I’m half-focused on reading over the first generation of the Mendeleevs again. Coincidence? Probably.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 10.00.15 AM

Haha, Zhan is broke.

Bookseller Guy: So am I! I don’t care if you’re my friend, but please buy a book!

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 10.05.53 AM

Palladium randomly fought a lady at base camp and won. And then befriended her. And then someone started spreading a rumor in China and all of the friends that Palli made went back down to not friends, and then I was angry because WHAT THE HELL GAME SHE CAN’T EVEN COUNTER THAT THERE IS NO CITY HALL.

Palladium: I didn’t even do it this time!

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 10.06.31 AM

I am not letting Palli meet Shing because if she’s attracted to both of her ancestors I would die.

Also, Zhan broke up with Biyu and he has a baby on the way because of course he does. For those not in the know, the game made it so Zhan had TWO babies in travel worlds while married to my founder.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.41.45 AM

And then off to collect Olive’s grave because she’s kind of part of the family. And I think she’d be fun to have around.

What’s wild is I’m pretty sure she was an elder when Nervous was a toddler (as opposed to full adult) so she died when her own son was an elder as well…

I mean, in Sims 2 she was supposedly an elder when Nervous was born…

Palladium: Grandma lived hella old.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.41.54 AM

And Nervous Subject doesn’t even care that his mother died.

This guy amused me. I think he might have had attraction with Palli, but if he did it was just an excuse to take a picture. :3

Palladium: Excuse me?

Palladium is basically Elle Woods, if Elle Woods were trying to be a criminal rather than a lawyer.

Palladium: Same thing.

… I wish I could give her a chihuahua. ;_;

Screen Shot 2014-02-26 at 9.17.55 AM

This is pretty much the classiest kegger ever. : P

Palladium: There wasn’t a juice keg so I went for some pool. : /

She started wanting to learn tricks after that… wait, is that guitar guy?

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.31.40 AM

Let’s all go to the drive-in… let’s all go to the drive-in…

Shane-Guy: Engagements?

HOW ARE YOU DOING THAT?

My guess is having the future phone makes that a thing?

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.36.09 AM

Shane: So… you’re pretty hot.

Palladium: Ew, no. You turned me down.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.38.30 AM

Then they kissed ’cause I want Palli to have options.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.10.15 AM

I thought zombies were supposed to be afraid of fire? I mean, in versions when they can be afraid of stuff? Or is that something else? Anyway, these ones aren’t.

Foreground Zombie: Throw it in the bonfire for SCIENCE.

I think if Uni had been out when Ellie was founding the legacy, I would’ve had her start out in university and max out her nerd cred. : P

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.14.05 AM

This is entirely my fault.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.22.10 AM

Palladium: Ow! … YOU SHALL PAY.

Trick shots are hard to learn, apparently.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.23.44 AM

Ping pong? Not so much. Palladium performs impressively for someone who never touched a paddle.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.24.11 AM

Then she does a victory dance to her phone’s ring tone.

Phone: Let it gooooooooo, let it goooooooo…

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.24.52 AM

Palladium: Looks like a notification that I suddenly lost ONE HUNDRED FOLLOWERS. Somehow. That wasn’t what the call was, obviously, but your transition sucked so I decided to help you with that.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.27.39 AM

Elle Woods. Seriously.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.44.12 AM

Palladium: LOOK, PLUMBOB! I GOT AN A!!!

Good job, honey.

Palladium: Now to go home and see my loving parents!

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 9.55.53 AM

Nervous? Your youngest daughter is home.

Nervous: Don’t care.

Alright. Back to Uni to finish this degree. : P

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 4.18.34 PM

Heckler: Boo! Palladium! Your trick shots are bad and you should feel bad.

Palladium: My next trick shot is lodging the eight ball in your stupid throat. >:D

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 4.19.41 PM

Then she suddenly slaps this guy. : /

Palladium: Screw him. *gains charisma skill for some reason*

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 4.32.42 PM

Palladium’s book this semester is called Criminalology, which is fitting.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 4.32.49 PM

Also, she continues to please me by making photo booth photos with no doubles. Good girl.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 7.59.59 PM

Palladium: The key to cooking success is treating your food with care, like an unborn baby. For that reason, I am allowing it to gestate in my womb.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.04.59 PM

Palladium stole a car when I wasn’t looking. It’s worth 51,000 simoleons, or something like that. I’m not going to sell it because that would feel kind of like cheating for that money, but I AM gonna paint it pink.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.20.58 PM

Probably-useless track in the gym! πŸ˜€

I have fond memories of the second-floor track in the gym. By that I mean I almost died.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.25.28 PM

Hello again, Paul.

Palli: I put on makeup for you.

Paul: I couldn’t tell; you always look so stunning.

I ship it. Mostly because Paulladium required no effort to think up.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.35.04 PM

Showing off Palli’s new phone color, which is now pink.

… Pink will be the bane of my existence by the end of this generation.

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.41.26 PM

Evidently, someone in the sorority does laundry. I approve. Positive moodlets with no effort on my part! πŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.58.41 PM

This old guy and the werewolf were evidently dared to wheelbarrow-race around campus for the day. Tragic.

DARE: Dare Acceptance Resistance Education and supporter of recursive acronyms.

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 2.35.30 PM

The microwave is apparently unreachable, so the house is full of half-cooked hotdogs.

Palladium: Way more sausage than I expected to see in an all-girls dorm… speaking of which, you haven’t scored me a hot date. : (

I tried to let Palli hook up with Paul, but he left before they could make it to the shower. : P

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 2.41.22 PM

This is only funny because a few moments before she was getting mad because Palli was mocking her ignorance or whatever that interaction is called.

Asala (or something): But, you know, maybe you’re right to mock me, since you’re a genius and all.

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 3.02.24 PM

Palladium: I’m graduating with my business degree, mom. You and Rhodium and Emily should come… nah, don’t bring dad. He wasn’t an option for me to invite.

Yttrium: I hear dialing… are you still screwing up and sticking your fingers through the holo phone?

Palladium: Um… no? Anyway, I didn’t see anything about where the graduation is, so I’m just assuming that it’ll force me there like high school? … did I even graduate high school? Anyway…

You know what they say about when you assume…

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 3.06.00 PM

Ellie would be proud of that moodlet, Palli.

Palladium: I try. πŸ™‚

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 3.14.28 PM

Palladium managed to get home fine, though, with no cares given by her parents, and when she signed up to be a criminal she reached level 4 without having to try. πŸ˜€

Palladium: I’m a getaway driver! … I’m not sure I ever actually learned to drive or got a license.

Double law-breaking!

Palladium: YAY! πŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 3.15.12 PM

The Satanic lighting switched from red to pink in honor of our evil heiress.

Palladium: The Prince of Darkness is such a sweetie. :3

I leave you with the Mendeleev family all sleeping in the same room… I’ll probably remodel the house soon. Or make it pink at least. πŸ™‚

This chapter sort of straddles generations, since I didn’t have enough to make a decent-sized chapter of just the stuff before Palli aged up. So there you go.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.48.50 AM

I used Palli’s teen action, which I don’t recall using before, to have her take the aptitude test. Yay.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.50.44 AM

Then I realized it was Saturday and everyone went out to the beach. I trusted them. I trusted no one would die.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.51.43 AM

Of course they all head off to go swimming ASAP.

Rhodium: We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader, we’re following the leader, wherever she may go.

Palladium: If you follow me, you can walk on water.

Palli, please don’t lose me readers by being all blasphemous. : (

Emily: My kite got wet. ;_;

Rhodium plays foosball. It’s super interesting. Compared to the art museum trip where everyone just LOOKED at things, at least.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.54.07 AM

This fairy is scary and I don’t want to cross her.

Yttrium: *wins because Rhodium can’t talk and play at the same time*

See?

My sims are working miracles somehow… though this is not as worrying as the random holograms appearing all the time.

Yttrium: *sputter*

You look like you’re not happy about your prank going off.

Palladium: Oh, that’s not mine.

AHA.

Triple birthday at the Mendeleevs ’cause I just wanna get on to the next TH at this point. Yttrium pours drinks to celebrate.

And sprinkles ‘herbs’ on the birthday cake.

Yttrium: It’s ‘chamomile’.

Right.

Yttrium: Shh. And the wine was nectar.

Ruthenium aged up awesome, and got the adventurous trait. So I bet everyone’s sad they didn’t vote for him. Or not. He’s going to be up for download soon, though, along with the others in the generation.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.33.33 PM

Rhodium got family-oriented. I’m not sure what LTW I picked for her, but I kicked the kids out soon after because I didn’t feel like bringing EVERYONE to college. Maybe next time. Hopefully SP will give them families this time and we can have some Mendeleev cousins FOR ONCE.

… well, for twice, ’cause the dual heirship that one time.

Emily’s gone, too. Off to take over the world in peace.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.34.52 PM

Palladium berates her father for being a criminal even though she’s evil?

Palladium: Not for being a criminal. For sucking at being a criminal. I could crime CIRCLES around him.

Ah.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.49.06 PM

Palladium’s final trait is Commitment-Issues. Also Fabulous, but that’s a hidden trait. πŸ˜‰ She’s adorable and wonderful and I have my evil heir. ❀

I’m still working out how this Heat of the Moment kiss thing works. He didn’t like it.

Palladium: His loss.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.02.36 PM

Pretty accurate pricing for college books.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.02.50 PM

Palladium: I… I got them for free. 😦

Awesome!

Palladium: But… free stuff isn’t fun if they *give* it to you.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.04.02 PM

I noticed this girl… I’ll call her Ashley for now since I think that was her name… was cackling evilly, so I had Palladium introduce herself and mastermind a plot. She immediately wanted to become friends with Ashley.

Palladium: I’m gonna steal some diamonds.

Ashley: Better use a rocket.

The social networking books were bought because it’s one of the skills for the business major, which in turn helps with the criminal career. And Empress of Evil is Palli’s goal.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.05.32 PM

I thought it was appropriate.

… darnit. If Pets worked, I could’ve had a horse called Bad Horse. I’ll just give the kids a rocking horse, I guess.

Palladium: KEKEKEKEKE. Ashley… you will be MINE!

… I think we have a stalker on our hands.

You picked her, folks.
