Hello, everyone! We’re ready for another chapter of the Mendeleevs! And we’ll be having an heir poll soon, too! Woo-hoo!
Since Silver was at another sim’s house, the game wouldn’t send her to prom (that I know of) so I sent Silver to prom. Sue me.
She got to be romantic interests with Kelsey Lau, the fairy boy who shows up in this legacy every once in a while.
And then Strontium had to make them related. : /
Eh. He’s okay-looking. He has a unique facial structure, at least. : P
Not sure why I took this.
Silver: Because I got a ‘creeped out’ moodlet from Cadmium.
Cadmium: I didn’t do anything!
Silver: Don’t act like nothing happened, you little creep.
Yttrium: Doo doo doo! Back from vacation.
One day I will catch you getting zapped. One day…
Yttrium: Doo doo doo!
Indium: We’re home, Grandma!
Cadmium: Don’t believe anything Silver says about me being creepy!
Silver’s working on her painting skill.
Palladium: Silver, we’ve made every joke possible out of the magenta girl. Stop.
I don’t remember what this was about. : /
Yttrium: Woo woo!
Ohey. I thought this happened last chapter and said that I didn’t have a picture, but I DID because it happened HERE.
Indium: Time for my birthday!
Cadmium: And mine!
One of you picked a crappy place to become a teenager. Talk amongst yourelves to figure out who it was.
Cadmium: It was me, wasn’t it?
Cadmium’s fourth trait is… a secret until the heir poll.
As is Indium’s. He looks a lot like Nervous and Palladium while Cadmium resembles the person who I remember as his father but may not be because that was a while ago.
Then I stopped playing and started again maybe a week after, so SIM CHECK.
Nervous and Cadmium were talking about arcade games.
Yttrium is… playing with the toy maker.
They like playing with that thing a lot more than one would think.
Palladium has just finished eating.
Palladium: Why do you care?
Because it’s a SIMCHECK.
AND SILVER IS SLEEPING.
This doesn’t seem like a big deal now, but I played ahead a bit.
Indium’s asleep too, but that’s not as big of a deal.
Nervous: Go, Palladium, go!
Palladium: I don’t think you’re qualified to train me, Dad. I’m two skill points ahead of you. And we hate each other.
And then we have a ghost working out.
… you know you don’t have muscles, right?
Palladium: Er… I’m here to bring a tomato to my aunt’s glitched imaginary friend? Do you know where I can find him?
Snuggles-or-whatever: I’m staring at a wall! 8D
We had to cancel the glitched opportunity. Luckily, the sim at the store gave us the tomato for free.
Might as well fail at the diving board while we’re at the pool, though.
Cadmium: Okay, dude. We barely know you. Why did you come home with us?
Kid: If I date your sister I might be in a legacy. : /
Indium: Too late. She’s talking to this other kid we don’t know about.
Kelsey’s apparently having romance with other girls at school, so I’m not sure if I’d keep him around if Silver is the next TH.
… great job, Nervous.
Palladium: Haha wasn’t me!!!
Nervous: Can I sit in the front seat?
Cop: Sure, I don’t see why I shouldn’t let a known criminal ride shotgun.
Nervous: Yay! 😀
One of the kids that came home with the teens co-opted our chemistry table. : /
Hey, kid. Some legacy kids are trying to sleep in their mothers’ beds so they can be well-rested for school!
And by ‘some’ I mean ‘one’.
Palladium got a promotion! She’s like level 8 now, I think.
Palladium: And it’s my birthday!
I see where Cadmium gets his ‘choosing where to age up’ skills.
Palladium: Now that I have a more mature look, I’ll become rich and take over the world!
Nervous: That’s nice, kid. : /
Nervous: I saw a prison fight last night. : )
Palladium: I saw a REAL fight last night, because now I’m a sidekick. And I’m gonna get a promotion to villain once I
kill the villain ahead of me show them my great work ethic.
Cadmium: Look, Mom! I’m working on martial arts, just like you! Are you proud of me?
Palladium: You punch like a kitten.
Cadmium: Nuh uh! *bats at training dummy*
Meanwhile, Indium went to a friend’s house. ‘Friend’ means ‘stranger’ in this context.
Indium: They’re so rich that I’ve been sitting here for fifteen minutes and things STILL aren’t rendered!
Palladium: This is the most diabolical thing any of my children have done… I’m so proud…
Cadmium also starts working on his painting skill. I feel like the kids might be starting to realize that the heir poll is fast approaching, so they need work on getting skills and such that would make them appealing torch-holders.
Palladium goes to work in her spiffy sidekick uniform!
Palladium: I’ll put arsenic sauce in his sandwich! That’ll do him in!
After Palladium returns from work, it seems that everyone’s schedules are cleared so it’s time for FAMILY OUTING WOO!
It’s kind of impressive that I’m still remembering to do these (mostly) considering how well I usually remember things. : /
Indium: Time to show up Mom in one try! Bet SHE can’t dive as well as I can!
Indium, stop being an attention-hog.
Nervous: You call THAT hogging attention?
I’d thought he drowned at first, since he was swimming and tired, but drowning sims don’t float like that.
Nervous: Well, that’s new.
Grim: I… uh… really messed up this time, didn’t I?
Yep. You’re not even in the building.
Nervous: But… I’m afraid of water!
… Number one, you’re DEAD. You can’t drown. Number two… if you’re afraid of the water, why did you dive right in?
Nervous: Insane trait, probably.
That’s… nice… Palladium.
Palladium: Now that Dad’s dead, I automatically win our race to the top of the Criminal career! 😀
Except EVERYONE had the ‘Great Time Out’ moodlet (with the exception, I’m assuming, of Nervous).
Silver: I know Grandpa died, and we were, like, best friends, but the pool was still a blast!
Grim: Am I in the right place?
Fairy: Whelp, I’m out. o__o
Grim: Don’t worry, I’ll come find you when I’m through with him.
This is what happens when a sim uses the moodlet manager on another sim in a pool.
Palladium: I’ve cured your grief over the dead AND I walk on water? Truly, I am as Jesus.
The antichrist, maybe. : /
Palladium: … oops. Wrong knob.
We almost had another FAIL because Palladium refused to find the bathroom unless I held her by the hand (metaphorically) all the way. Up the stairs, through the door, and into the stall.
There were minutes left before disaster struck. o_o
The rest of the family came home after that, but Yttrium was no longer part of the group, for some reason, so she stayed at the pool.
I watched her, wondering if she’d die, drown, or pass out first. : /
Or come home. But I didn’t have high hopes.
Thanks, Silver. : /
Apparently we had unpaid bills?
Cadmium: You could’ve waited for me to get out of the bathroom, first.
… at least the shower was already broken.
Since Silver hasn’t shown any intention to go to bed, I take matters into my own hands as best as I could.
Palladium: Go to bed.
Silver: God, Mom! I’m not a child anymore! I can go to bed whenever I want, even if I just passed out in the middle of our kitchen.
Palladium: Urge to kill… rising…
Silver: Thanks for using that moodlet manager thing to erase my tired-ness, Mom!
Palladium: Sure. I don’t want our score going to shit under my watch. You can fail all you want when the new TH takes over.
Don’t drown Yttrium. It’ll give me negative points. : (
And I’d be sad. I guess.
Aw, she looks so peaceful. : 3
Yttrium: Look, I’m coming home.
