Hey guys! The results are in, and you picked…
Antimony as our next torch-holder. She looks… thrilled.
And in the background…
Fail. : /
I knew that was going to happen because he passed out when I sent Xenon to be a princess, which is for all intents and purposes ‘non-canon’ for the legacy because I just popped in to take some heir vote pictures and didn’t save.
Xenon actually knows how to go to bed. Or, well, tree house. Good on you, Xenon.
The gnomes are all point out my shit landscaping job by hanging out on a cliff I failed to smooth out after I made the house. : /
I think they are, from left to right, Culta, Edamame, Leroy, and Chad.
Tin: Mom, you must be super ignorant not to let me be the next torch-holder!
Silver: I had nothing to do with this!
And then Silver could become the nemesis of her own daughter.
Yeah, let’s not do that.
And then Tin went to go be traumatized next to Antimony, by the looks of her face.
Tin: What do you have that I don’t?
Antimony: Dyed hair.
And Annie doesn’t faint because of ghosts constantly. That’s always a plus in a legacy house filled with ghosts.
Although Tin did ‘win’ the award for being most sensible on that particular night, because she actually slept instead of playing shuffleboard into the wee hours of the morning.
Antimony: I can go to school on two hours of sleep no problem.
She was given a dose of the moodlet manager after school so she could be awake for the party. A party thrown for the express purpose of inviting Antoine over.
Good luck, girl! After this, you’re on your own for a bit.
He accepted the kiss and they flirted for a while until Annie felt tired.
Iodine was out at a friend’s house while the party was happening, and then went to ‘follow Palladium’ when curfew came, because he’s a child and the police only take teens home.
So he spent the night hanging outside the criminal hideout. So much safer than spending the night with a classmate.
Basically took this to explain that Palladium got an opportunity to hold the world hostage, and since it’s a rabbit-hole opportunity and I’m pretty sure I haven’t used Palli’s elder interaction yet, we’re taking it. The Mendeleevs have enough money that the cash doesn’t really matter to me, I just want to be able to say Palladium took over the world.
NO SILVER. WE HAVE ENOUGH.
Palladium was invited out on yet another date (I don’t think this is with the guy she hates, though) and I happened to find this little Mendeleev when Silver went to give Palli a pick-me-up so she wouldn’t pass out on the concrete.
So cute. I think he’s related to Indium? Cadmium has a child, too, but that spawn has teal hair and I haven’t seen him around town yet.
Just before Palladium went around to talk to her daughter, the guy she was dating decided to flirt with this other woman. Palli just sort of ignored him.
Palladium: How DARE you interrupt my date, you brainless ninny!
Silver: Great way to thank me for making you un-tired, Mom. And why are we in the bushes?
Palladium: TO ESTABLISH A RUNNING GAG!’
… and then the other woman died.
Clearly, Palladium went to the back of the building to have a loud argument in order to have an alibi.
Woman: … you did this, didn’t you?
Palladium: I will neither confirm nor deny that.
Death: Did you do this, Palladium? I’m very proud of you.
Palladium: Well, I couldn’t let her steal my date like that. : )
You were just looking for an excuse to kill someone, weren’t you?
Indium’s Wife: … did my mother-in-law just commit cold-blooded murder?
Death: Maybe I should kill the man as well and save myself the extra trip…
Thank you, Xenon. I love you too. </3
Tin: Good thing I managed to get on the honor roll, earning you points!
Good thing you didn’t have to take any tests about whether you run away from or towards ghosts. : /
Tin: *shoves foot in… whatever that is*
Iodine found the rocky horse, so at least it wasn’t a total waste of money.
And then Tellurium got reprimanded while at a friend’s house. From what he was doing at the time and the father’s outfit, I can only assume that he was bragging that his grandmother is the guy’s boss.
Also, they are all in bushes.
Palladium: All of my underlings need to stand in bushes for a portion of their day. My word is law!
She hasn’t gone mad with power at all, you see.
Palladium: Quan, move your behind or I will summon DEATH to take you!
Chill out? Please?
Palladium: But I need my WAFFLES!
I moved the waffles somewhere accessible and she ignored them. Go figure.
Laurel: Seriously, Yttrium? You’re an embarrassment to us ghosts.
Palladium had another date, I think with the guy she was with when she killed the lady.
This would be so much easier if I bothered to learn people’s names.
I haven’t seen any unnaturally-colored people in town before this girl, so I can only assume she was mutated by one of the dangerous chemicals Palli hides around town for evil purposes.
She’s very pretty, though, and if we had a male heir I would probably be pursuing her as the next spouse.
I saw that, Palladium.
Palli: You saw nothing! I held the world HOSTAGE, woman!
… for $4,000 dollars. I get more than ten times that extorted from me on a yearly basis. It’s called college.
After being declared a spare rather than an heir, Tin has decided she does not give a rat’s ass about the family. Here she is deliberately holding a conversation right in front of the television.
She then sits down and turns on the game console.
Antimony: I was watching that, buttface.
Tin: Grandma taught me to take what I want, when I want.
Antimony: When you move out, I’m going to go to your house and steal your toilet. Then you will spend the rest of your life pissing yourself.
Tin grew up very pretty, with the final trait of excitable. She’s staying around for now because I haven’t decided if Annie’s going to college, and I would love to see what uncontrollable sims will get up to if they do go to Uni.
Tellurium: It wasn’t me! The puddle’s all the way over there. It was Grandma who did it!
Palladium: Do you really want to play that game, boy? Do you know what happened to the last sim who crossed me?
Another laundry gnome has been found, and given the name Abraham after Abraham Zale.
I was about to find a venue for the family outing when Tin decides for me.
Tin: Forced family outing to marvel at my greatness!
Tin was valedictorian. I’m proud of her.
But she only got the title because there were no test questions about ghosts.
This kid’s a Mendeleev, but he got the name when his mother married in, so he’s not blood-related.
Iodine: BIRTHDAY TIME!
I don’t have a picture of him as a teen because I was more focused on…
Next time, pictures of Anni and Iodine aged up, and a new TH! WOOT WOOT!
