The Case of the Disappearing Men

Don’t worry, Bill Nye. We know all about Helium here.

Yttrium: My ex-husband disappeared in the floorboards.

Yes. I see.

I could have sworn I saw him when the game first opened, and then *poof* in the floorboards. Resetting him didn’t work.

Nervous: And my mother always told me not to eat off the ground…

Yttrium: Maybe if we built a rocket it would fix you.

Nervous: How?

Yttrium: Because rockets are awesome.

Palladium: Graduation time? You fixed it?

No, you’re graduating high school after completing college.

Palladium: Blurgh.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.36.53 AM

Good news is that Palladium was voted most likely to take over the world. And graduation made Nervous come back!

It’s finally good for something!

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.37.27 AM

Ruthenium: I graduated too!

Good. Go make little cousins for this generation’s heirs. I have SP installed so get to it.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.38.48 AM

After graduation, Palladium went to do an opportunity at the grocery store, and this happened.

That’s Palladium’s grandma, by the way.

Grim: Hello~ Olive Specter! πŸ˜‰

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.39.29 AM

Grim: Ohey, Palli. How’s taking over the world?

Palladium: I’m getting there… how many greats is it again?

Grim: Well, since your mother had you with Nervous Subject, you drop all the greats and call me ‘grampa’ again.

Palladium: … gross.

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.

Palladium: Remember how you were going to set up a graveyard for us?

… I’ll get on that. Eventually.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.42.50 AM

Palladium: Wow, Olive Specter sucks. She was unlucky.

She seriously goes to mock her still-warm grandmother to a random guy.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.43.05 AM

Cornell (?): While I don’t approve of you mocking the dead, you’re still charismatic so I’m attracted to you.

Palladium: I’m told that my charisma makes up for my detestable personality. : )

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.44.25 AM

I feel like I missed something. *checks scorched moodlet* From LIGHTNING?

Yttrium: You missed a lot. o_o

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.45.53 AM

Nervous: Might I say that you look stunning! Get it? Electricity?

Yttrium: I want another wine rack.

Someone in your family just died! … and you have like six, Yttrium.

I think something’s wrong with his shoulders.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.49.04 AM

Ohey Laurel.

Laurel: I have to keep that ghostly flab off now that that Olive bint is sidling up to my husband.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.49.41 AM

Hello, zombies!

I’ve been keeping the moon set on a single phase to keep the weird glow at bay, but I got a mod to get rid of it! πŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.50.01 AM


I should have kept you in the floor.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.51.09 AM

Aww… why are they in the same bed?

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.51.28 AM

Oh, Krypton stole Yttrium’s bed and she didn’t want to sleep with her dead father.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.52.16 AM

Laurel joins him.

It is pretty dang adorable.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.53.49 AM

Palladium: Who are you?

Paul: I’m Paul.

Palladium: You don’t have wings.

Paul: I got a job in the criminal career and had to have them torn off to keep our intimidating image.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.54.42 AM

Palladium: My grandma died, and all she wanted was… *sniffle* to see her great-grandchildren.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.54.53 AM

Paul: Oh, you’re pregnant?

Palladium: No, dumbass. That’s your job.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.57.29 AM

Paul: Oh… don’t mind if I do. πŸ˜‰

Palladium: Really? πŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 8.57.52 AM

Paul: PSYCH.

Palladium: D8

Paul then left and now I can’t invite him back, or invite anyone who’s not a local sim over. The game says I need to wait for him to leave but, as you can see, he is GONE.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.00.09 AM

Yttrium: Don’t worry baby. Just bide your time until the option to call him back over comes back.

Palladium: *sniffle* Okay… I *do* have an opportunity to learn martial arts I can work on…

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.01.26 AM

When Palladium and Nervous are at work, I’m stuck watching Yttrium. Isn’t that how you got shocked the first time?

Yttrium: Mayyybe.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.06.50 AM

I cheatsy bought the martial arts gear, since I don’t trust World Adventures 100% still. It killed my family once and I won’t forget that.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.10.23 AM

Since Palladium hates the outdoors, I had to squeeze her new things inside.

Palladium: *fails at breaking board*

That is STYROFOAM… you’re almost halfway through your athletic skill!

Palladium: Styrofoam is my weakness. : (

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.10.46 AM

Palladium: YES.

Teddy Bear: Look out, we got a badass over here!

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.14.54 AM

See? He can’t be selected!

… and Strontium got together with an elderly woman who won’t give us little Mendeleevs. : (

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.15.27 AM

I think she’s pretty close to being a face one, too. Booooo.

Ignore the user fail in the corner.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.16.34 AM

Palladium hates her father.

Nervous: But… money.

Palladium: *wishes to be friends with father*

… We can try, but she’s almost all the way in the red relationship-wise. And that’s a very not-evil wish.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.18.08 AM

Yttrium: You missed me being zapped again! I discovered electricity!

… no you didn’t.

Yttrium: Ellie would be SO PROUD.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.20.53 AM

Ohey, Mitchell Flynn.

Palladium: I want to buy you flowers. It’s such a shame you’re a boy. But when you are not a girl, nobody buys you flowers.

His face is… interesting, but he has the ability to give Palladium an heir so we’ll take him for now.

Unicorn: I’m being impaled!

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.21.29 AM


Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.21.51 AM

Mitchell is not happy because he has a girlfriend named Bonnie.

Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.22.33 AM

But Palladium is charismatic as all get out so she’s able to persuade him.


Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 9.23.44 AM

This meeting of the Ministry of Silly Walks will now be adjourned.

Cyrano: Back to being an elderly woman’s forgotten doll! : D
