Bonehilda Rejected

We start this chapter off with… um…

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.48.28 PM

Silver… making… macaroni?

I have no idea why I took this?

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.48.48 PM

Bonehilda: Oh, what a sweet baby. If only I could hold her, I could know true happiness! I always wanted a baby of my own, but, alas, I have no ovaries…

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.50.28 PM

Bonehilda: Time to throw myself into work and wait for the day when I’ll be able to interact with Tin and experience the true joy of a child’s innocence and laughter.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.51.04 PM

… taking a quick break from the Bonehilda/Tin drama, Palladium continues to be generally awesome and build her logic skill. Except she’s stealing Silver’s computer. : /

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.53.42 PM

*sigh* Bonehilda…

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.54.11 PM

Silver: Oops. I broke the computer. Guess I can’t work on my writing anymore. No choice but to send me to the spa.

Fix it. Fix it and get back to work.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.54.58 PM

… speaking of ‘not working’.

Quan: I don’t trust you with my daughters. You’re evil.

Palladium: Yeah? I don’t trust you with my grand-daughters! You’re so frugal you probably reuse dirty diapers.

Quan: You can wash cloth diapers! It’s perfectly sanitary!

Bonehilda: … are either of you going to pay attention to the screaming infant?

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.55.17 PM

Palladium: Anyway, about this comic book I read…

Bonehilda: *sigh* If I had a flesh body I could feed you.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.55.42 PM

Tin: About time you paid attention to me!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.56.30 PM

Bonehilda: Mm hm. You better help that child. I’ve been standing her for like half an hour while you were chit-chatting.

I really wish Bonehilda had the ability to care for the kids. Because she’d be pretty awesome at it, judging by her behavior.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 9.57.53 PM

Speaking of kids… I want one that’s not teal. : / Preferably one whose father’s genetics are readily apparent in its face.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.02.09 PM

And Tin grows up just in time that we won’t need to buy a third crib! Since nursery turned out so nice I don’t want to make it into her permanent room, and the spare room has been co-opted into a study, I build a little ‘playhouse’ real quick beside the main house. This shall be where the children and teens will live.
Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.31.55 PM

As you can see, the main room is just full of toys.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.32.02 PM

We’ve even got a little oven for food and a table for eating and homework. I’m contemplating the possibility of adding a fridge for some quick meals, but I haven’t figured out a place to put it that would look alright.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.32.10 PM

The bathroom is bathroom. That is all there is to say on that matter.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.32.17 PM

And this is Tin’s bedroom, which she doesn’t need to share with crying babies, and ghosts probably won’t float through her bed at night because the main house is closer. Probably.

… and we’re really hoping the ghosts won’t come to her. Not only because child sims will more likely than not start the whole ‘bedtime story’ thing over if they get woken up, but also because…

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.33.11 PM

… Tin got coward.

Tin: OMFG a skeleton! *runs away from not only Bonehilda, but thought bubble of Bonehilda as well*

Bonehilda: But… I thought what we had was special!

I was seriously disappointed by this. I was hoping they could be best buds. But now we have to dismiss our maid. And she hasn’t even become annoying and started playing hopscotch or cooking constantly yet. : /

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.35.07 PM

Tin goes to bed without harrassing the adults for hours on end! Score!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.37.04 PM

Now that Bonehilda’s gone, Quan and Palladium actually have to care for the children. Or maybe they sensed my ire and are trying to redeem themselves.

Quan: She’s my daughter. I should take care of her.

Palladium: I was here first!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.38.08 PM

Quan: Don’t worry, Annie. I won’t let your evil old grandma hurt you.

Palladium: I HEARD THAT.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.38.49 PM

Tin goes off for her first day of school.

I… didn’t capture the face-one/robot bus driver, so I have nothing clever to say about this.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.40.36 PM

Tellurium is on the way!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.41.03 PM

Scary Bush Man: I find Silver attractive and think we should get to know each other better.

WHO ARE YOU AND HOW DID YOU GET OUR NUMBER?

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.43.55 PM

Tin: Are you prepared for autonomous cuteness?

Hold on, Antimony’s aging up.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.45.24 PM

Dammit. Teal and a Palli/Silver clone.

Alright, commence with cuteness.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.46.27 PM

Tin: RAWR I AM A DINOSAUR!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.46.38 PM

Tin: VOTE ME FOR TORCH-HOLDER.

There’s still quite a bit of time to advertise, Tinny.

… and did you do your homework?

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.46.54 PM

Ah. Yes. Continue being a dinosaur, then. I have no objections.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.49.16 PM

Yttrium came out in the morning to play shuffleboard while Leroy hides from Edamame.

… I’m actually not sure where she is.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.50.42 PM

Palladium got asked out on a date, so I let her go. It’s also family outing day. Which means keeping an eye on uncontrollable sims on two different lots. Whoopie.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.51.26 PM

… the date doesn’t go well, as you can see.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.53.15 PM

Our family outing is at the beach, which I swore I wouldn’t do again, but I figure I can use the ‘call everyone home’ function if I’m worried about drowning children. I hope.

We also brought a picnic basket in hopes to lure swimming sims out of the water, if necessary.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.54.00 PM

Quan and Tin interacting! Yay!

Turns out I didn’t need to worry, because everyone went home on their own pretty soon after we got there.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.55.56 PM

I learned that Tin had gone home when I got THIS.

Um… okay, then. Is this telling me to make Tin a vampire?

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.56.30 PM

Silver and Antimony were actually the last ones to head home. She was hungry, but there was no point in setting out a picnic if no one else was there.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.56.55 PM

Tin, our genius, has started working on her logic skill. I have high hopes for her in regards to her skill level when she reaches YA.

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 10.59.40 PM

Palladium and Tin interaction!

Palladium: You’re a smart girl, Tin. I’m sure you could become a great diamond thief when you’re older…

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 11.00.06 PM

Eyes rolled in back of head means that Silver’s done with her writing skill! On to painting!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 11.00.58 PM

Silver’s only got a few more skill points of painting left before she reaches the top, and painting tends to be a bit more interesting than writing, because you can actually see what she’s up to in the pictures. So I’m pretty certain Silver will reach her LTW before long.

  1. For some reason, your Bonehilda made me a little bit sad. Like she REALLY wanted to take care of the babies. Tin is adorable, Antimony looks really creepy with those bright red eyes. Looking forward to meeting Tellurium! Lovely little update!

    • Even though I’m pretty sure a patch removed the Bonehilda’s ability to interact with toddlers and infants without removing the AI directing her to take care of kids with low needs (I distinctly remember Bonehilda picking up toddlers at some point)… it still made me feel sad. And then I wondered why I felt sad. It’s a pixel skeleton, for plumbbob’s sake.

  2. I just figured out why I keep getting confused between Palli and Silver – because they’re identical, and you do too. Pretty sure Palli is making macaroni in the first pic, she’s the only with the long flowy hair, right?

    Yep, and my Boney does exactly the same thing – even when I can control all the sims and they’re on the way to get the kid, she stands in the way. So annoying. Poor Boney 😦 We should absolutely be invested in the pixel people!

    Woot, go Silver, fulfill that LTW! I do love her, even if we barely see her doing anything but skilling.
