Hello, guys! Last time things happened, Palladium died, and we kicked out Tellurium because he was being an ass.
Silver is berating her son’s ignorance just before he heads off to school. *sigh*
Pretty sure no one likes this interaction. : /
I was a bit distracted from sim check then, because I noticed that we needed to pay bills. Something like $2,000. Damn.
And the mailsim decides to help herself to some of our hard-earned alcohol, while she’s at it. : /
Then I noticed Leroy died.
RIP. You will be missed. I guess.
Well, since the boys are at school, I guess the next sim to check would be.
Silver: Why? Why so soon?
Death: Going up! *floats through floor*
He shows the proper amount of sympathy about the whole thing, though, which I have to admire.
A little before Quan went all floaty, Antimony got an opportunity, and the death apparently sent her back home. Or something.
And then the game started playing the ‘opportunity completed’ music. Over. And over. And over.
Music: Dooooo doo. Doooo doo. Dododo dododo! Dadadadadada DOO!
Quan: I’ll gladly accept this fate if it means the music will stop.
Silver: Noooo! Don’t make me suffer on my own.
Since I could pinpoint exactly what made the music happen, and going back to the main menu and opening the game again didn’t fix it, I loaded the previous save. We only lost like half a morning.
I feel like Quan knew both times when he would die, because he autonomously starts an interaction with his wife this time, too.
Still sad the second time around. So sad. Much feels.
Everyone gathers around to mourn Quan for a second time. But at least the music’s stopped playing.
And check out his feet, guys. They look wicked cool, all see-through and such.
Death starts to go for the booze, but stops so he can comfort Silver and tell her that things will be alright.
While Antimony is, I shit you not, lined up to try and flirt with him. There are numerous things wrong with that. It’s almost a game to try and name them all.
Silver: Ah well, he’s gone time to drown our sorrows.
Antimony: Wait for me.
YOU ARE PREGNANT.
The boys come home and are pretty bent out of shape when they hear the news. Xenon especially.
Eventually they get over it and do their homework.
There was a reason I took this beyond Antoine being sad that Quan died, but I’m not sure what it was.
Oh, right. He got demoted from work because he apparently skips a lot. : /
Not happy with this one at the moment.
Antimony doesn’t seem to mind.
Antimony: It’s alright if you fail at going to work, baby. We’re filthy rich either way.
AND THEN BABIES HAPPEN AW YEAH.
Not the meteor I was hoping for, but still cool.
Antimony: You wanted me to be hit by an meteor?
Not hit, just… startled.
Kid texting in nothing but a kilt in front of hospital is related to the Mendeleevs in some way.
I don’t know what he’s doing with his life, but whatever it is, it’s working. Rock on, kid.
Antimony: So… you were trying for twins.
That’s what I was aiming for, yes.
Antimony: I think you aimed a bit high.
So get ready to meet Caesium, Barium, and Lanthanum, guys.
Iodine: It’s my birthday!
DAMMIT. I do not have time for you right now, we have three babies on the way home.
Iodine: You don’t even have time for me if I look like this?
Hm… still don’t. I’ll get to you next time, promise, kay?
The first baby is a girl, Caesium. I had taken screenshots that showed me their traits and favorites, but deleted them in a brain fart, so we’ll learn about their personalities later. I think she likes black, though. And she might have the insane trait?
Also, Caesium apparently means ‘sky blue’.
Baby number two is Barium. Mixed triplets, woot! Barium’s name can be shortened to Barry or something if I want, and he likes some shade of purple, because two of the triplets do and I think it’s the boys who do.
Last but certainly not least, we have Lanthanum, who also likes purple. And because I suddenly wanted to know where the word ‘Caesium’ came from and then went on an etymology spree, I now know that ‘Lanthanum’ comes from the Greek word ‘to lie hidden’ because it ‘hid’ in the element Cerium and was difficult to separate, and Cerium is the next on the table so that’s cool.
I honestly didn’t think we could have three because Quan JUST died a bit earlier, so I guess he died so Lanthanum can live.
Kid better grow up to be awesome, just saying.
