Hey, guys. This was supposed to make it out to you on Halloween, but my dorm Internet is a butt so the pictures wouldn’t upload. But happy belated Halloween, you guys, and happy Samhain, and happy All Saints’ Day, and Happy NaNoWriMo. And happy any holidays I may have forgotten. (No Shave November?)
I was Little Dead Ridinghood. : )
Sim check. Palladium and Silver live up to the Mendeleev name by being raging drunks.
I don’t know why we still have that there. I’m not even sure why I got it.
Quan talks to his daughter about something or other. No speech bubbles mean I have no idea.
And then Antione comes to flirt with Antimon… oh, wait, no. That’s Silver. I’m not the one confused here, Antoine is.
STOP FLIRTING WITH YOUR MOTHER IN LAW TO BE.
Xenon’s been skipping school.
Palladium: You get your ass to class or I’ll cut you, boy, and no band-aid is going to help you.
Xenon: Grandma’s so cool.
More drinking. *sigh*
The gnomes are playing monkey in the middle with an invisible ball. Just normal legacy stuff, really.
… and Xenon never ended up going to school.
Quan: Don’t tell your Grandma I’m letting you play videogames.
Not that school is bettering the other kids in the family. : /
Tellurium: I want to do my homework but there’s a WALL in the way.
Omigod Tellurium are you serious.
He then turns around, sits down with his homework, and promptly realizes his ‘fun’ bar is too low to actually do his homework. *bangs head on keyboard*
More ghost hunting pictures! I’m trying to keep it down to when something interesting happens.
Here, we see… well, we don’t see. The ghosts are INVISIBLE. Luckily, Antimony can find them alright on her own.
Until this lady, who was at work when the job started, wanted to chat with Annie. It was too much to think that we’d have a peaceful night of collecting the souls of the damned in a hell-vacuum. Hope this woman likes eating breakfast without any chairs.
The ghosts became visible about halfway through the job. Guess they didn’t load. We kept the ghost in the foreground, though, because he’s ‘wrathful’ and I thought it was cool.
Speaking of wrathful ghosts…
Palladium: But… I just finished making cheesy bread.
Everyone runs in to mourn Palladium’s passing.
Palladium: Please? Just give me enough time to eat my cheesy bread! : (
On the bright side, Palladium got the best urn, as expected.
Antoine: SERIOUSLY, SIS?
All of the women in Antoine’s family are horrible people. That is the takeaway lesson of this chapter. We already knew his mother is, and now his sisters have to prove it, too.
We all deal with things in our own ways. Silver’s way is to play frisbee with her elderly husband.
The gnomes invade Palladium’s room.
And then life needed to go on. It was Saturday, when both halves of Antoinemony had off. So time for the wedding.
We have such a nice wedding setup and everything.
I chose an angle that would get us beautiful views as the wedding was going on.
Uh… guys? The benches are there for a reason.
And then Antoine is thinking of his half-sister.
Antoine: I’m just distracted by the fact that she wanted me to throw a bachelor party just after my fiancee’s mother died.
Okay. You’re forgiven.
Cue adorable wedding.
It’s not a unicorn wedding, but it’s still cute.
First kiss as woman and husband.
I have nothing clever to say here.
And then this girl ruins it.
Girl: Xenon’s here? Xenon sucks!
Girl: Boo! Xenon! Your face is bad and no one likes you!
Yes, this girl is related to Antoine. She’s his sister. : /
Antoine’s first action as a official member of the Mendeleev family is… predictable.
This family has a drinking problem, guys. : /
So I went with having them woohoo in wardrobe to get pregnant with the next generation, since the wardrobe doesn’t require maneuvering both of sims into a bed. I didn’t realize until later that I was having them celebrate their honeymoon in Palladium’s old room…
Gnome: Palladium’s gonna haunt your asses.
And Tellurium ages up in the bathroom, so when he moves out we’ll have TWO empty slots to fill! I didn’t take a picture because full moon, so he’s still in the house for a little bit.
And Antoine’s mother turned into a zombie and began attacking people before the wedding party was over. How nice.
Iodine: Hey, I exist!
Palladium’s returned almost immediately. We didn’t even have time to miss her.
Palladium: I’m here to show that wimp Laurel what a real haunting looks like! You better believe… WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN MY ROOM?
The family heads out for a nice picnic by the lake, because we do family outings here. Leaving the house. It is a thing the Mendeleevs do.
After lunch, they literally line up to berate Iodine’s ignorance.
Iodine: … is it too late to go back to not being in this chapter?
Iodine tries to talk to Tellurium and Tellurium SCREAMS IN HIS FACE.
He’s a cute sim.
Too bad he is SATAN.
Good job enjoying the great outdoors, Antoine. Way to be.
So the family heads back home shortly after this, and I decide to move Tellurium out. But we got an option to move to another owned lot. We own a private lot that’s basically tiny and has nothing, so I wanted to see if I could make Tellurium live there.
The game made the whole family move, though, so we had to move back, and then we kicked him out for realsies. He’s saved in my launcher thing so I’ll upload him when everyone in the generation is all aged up I guess.
Also Antimony is a badass and she stole a street lamp from the city hall without anyone noticing. Not even I noticed. That is how good she is.
Maybe I should have picked the master thief LTW.
Finally, baby is confirmed to be coming.
Antoine: Is this because of what we did in the wardrobe?
