An Elementary Christmas

Welcome back to the Mendeleev ISBI. This is our ‘Christmas’ post, although I obviously couldn’t control my sims so it’s as ‘Christmassy’ as they’d let me make it. We have prom coming up as well, so yay for that.

It was the night day before Christmas,
And all through the house…Caesium was making inappropriate forum posts on another sim’s computer, and I decided not to make this rhyme. : /

Antimony: Whoo! I yelled at my son for no reason again!

Seriously Lanthanum what are you doing that’s so wrong?

Lanthanum: I don’t… know?

Dym lost his computer privileges though, because he’s got a D in school. Looks like a lot of the Mendeleev kids will be on Santa’s ‘naughty’ list. Ho ho ho.

Okay, I’ll stop now. o_o

Katja: Lucille, we need to discuss how you dress. I think it’s affecting poor little Raz.

Raz: I just don’t like showers. : /

Viola: Just counting down the days until I can move out.

Antimony: This is by far the most disgusting haunting I’ve been to yet.

Clothes: Iiiii am the ghooooost of Laundry Paaaaast. I will show you what happened to your sooooockssss…

Toilet: I am the ghost of Shitting Paaaaa–

Antimony: Don’t care!

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 7.59.42 PM

Antimony wet herself while exorcising Mulan’s house, because Mulan decided to scare her on the job and I retaliated by stealing her toilet and sink. FAIL, but worth it.

Hey, hey Cerium.

*clears throat*

Do you wanna build a snowman?

Cerium: It’s… not actually winter. You don’t have Seasons. We can’t build snowmen.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.01.34 PM

But… we can pretend we built this one!

Cerium: That’s a decorative object.

The Secksies had a decorative pet pig and no one had to be a party pooper about it! *pout*

Cerium: His hat’s not on straight; I would never make a snowman like that. Even if snow weren’t horrible evil water.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.03.22 PM

Everyone made a letter to Santa, though. You can’t tell me otherwise!

Antimony: Cerium, you know Santa can’t bring us a pony.

Cerium: I didn’t write that one. : /

Lanthanum: No pony? 😦

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.03.55 PM

Agatha: The police are outside the house and there’s a girl sleeping on the porch. What is my life.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.04.07 PM


Viola: My family is crazy. Take me with you. o_o

I doubt the Mendeleevs will be any better. : /

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.05.45 PM

Silver: How dare you! What is this, the third time in a row?

I had Antimony let her off the hook because she needs to go to school and things like that. And prom is coming up; I don’t want any of the kids missing prom.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.13.39 PM

Yo, it’s the fairy Lynda Kahn and her son, Arnold.

Barium went over to their house. Possibly to bury the hatchet.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.14.16 PM

Part of me wants to marry someone in from this family at some point. Like a marriage alliance to unite the warring families. Mostly because Ferby from the Pokemon Legacy was pretty much the most adorable thing ever.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.16.46 PM

Why did I take a picture of Antimony eating sushi?

The world may never know.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.17.10 PM

Lanthanum: Stupid… Santa… not bringing me a pony… *grumble* *mutter* *angrily kneads dough*

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.17.41 PM

More ghosts coming from this house. There are only so many families in town right now (I think) so we go to a lot of the same houses.

Antimony: I heard you’re going to marry one of my sons?

Zhasmina: They’re attractive, I guess. : /

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.18.02 PM

:O Antimony! Ignore the spouse material brushing you off and come see this ghost!


The Mendeleevs really like their alcohol, guys.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.23.48 PM

We bought a laundromat because we had the money and why not. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it, just yet. For now we just got another washer and dryer to upgrade it to a three star establishment, which is apparently the limit for this sort of thing.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.27.46 PM

And Caesium’s sleeping in the bathroom.

She never fails to disappoint, does she?

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.30.04 PM

It’s the morning of prom and I just got an alert saying that the twins are going to be teens ‘soon,’ so I decided to speed things up ’cause I wanted them to be able to go to prom for sure.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.38.48 PM

Cerium: I feel a sudden affinity for baking and other kitchen-related tasks.

Aw, cutie.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.41.41 PM

Dym: I feel a sudden desire to be in a cubicle. : I

He’s… eh. It’d have been nice if he’d been a workaholic when he was FAILING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

Workaholic makes it more likely they’d do homework, right?

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.42.56 PM

I got a notification saying that Cerium witnessed a shoot-out or something, which freaked me right the fudge out, until I saw she was playing with the virtual reality goggles.

And then I guess nothing happened until prom.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.45.57 PM

Ooh, who’s Trinity?

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.46.02 PM

Cerium’s hitting it off with the Kahn boy.


Two houses, both alike in dignity…

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.46.16 PM

Barium is hitting it off with Wren, who was another scary eyebrow girl a while back. Wouldn’t be opposed to him having kids with her, either, if he’s heir. LET THE EYEBROWS LIVE ON!

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.46.45 PM

Lanthanum was prom king! But he got in trouble for suggesting a prank in front of the chaperones.

Lanthanum: Prank? I was serious about filling the school with horses! It’d be a much better atmosphere!

Cerium: And germier! D:

Barium: We can’t introduce horses to the delicate North Pole ecosystem!

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.47.19 PM

And Antimony is one promotion away from reaching her LTW! I doubt we can make it in what time we have left, but I can dream. Although it really depends on who is voted heir, I guess.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.50.13 PM

I’m not sure if I mentioned it or took a picture, but I made Cerium’s bedroom completely symmetrical.

Cerium: As it should be… zzz…

And then… Santa came. Or something. I’m not gonna lie, I was expecting Silver to keel over and I was going to dress my simself in a Santa-esque outfit and have her bring the graves. But that didn’t happen so I had to get actual gifts for the kids, at least.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.55.55 PM

Barium got a bunch of greenery for his room.

Barium: They’ll help to convert some of the carbon dioxide I create into oxygen! 😀

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.56.06 PM

Lanthanum got horse things.

Lanthanum: That statue’s been there. : /

Hush, you. You got a rocking horse at least.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.56.17 PM

Cerium got this thing because it was symmetrical, but I didn’t realize it was a fountain. I mean, I did, but I didn’t connect it to her being hydrophobic.

Cerium: I can never go in my room again. o_o

I’ll swap it for something cooking related I guess when I open the game again. : /

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.56.35 PM

Dym already has a killer pet and a chainsaw, so he got a cannon because evil.

Dym: I wanted the Dexter mod. : (

You’ll get what you get and you won’t get upset.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.59.15 PM

Caesium got a magic mirror. Maybe it will compliment her and her enormous ego.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.57.51 PM

I had Dym invite Trinity over with his teen action, since she was the only one of the new romantic interests whom I haven’t seen yet.

Antione: Good, matching outfit. Now, let’s just see what you have in your pocket…

Trinity: Mr. Mendeleev, I’ll call the police if you don’t take a step back. : /

They sure as hell know where we live with all the times that Caesium gets escorted back home.
Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.58.12 PM

Aw, and her face is even interesting. She’s definitely not a face one. I think. I’m real bad at faces guys. : /

Unfortunately, that seems to be a career outfit or something, so I couldn’t change her hair to something more flattering or anything like that.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 8.59.00 PM

Trinity: Bye, off to wizarding school!

And… that’s all I have! But before we go, I have a Christmas gift for all of YOU! 😀

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 9.01.14 PM

Caesium is the only child in the generation with teal hair. She has delusions of grandeur, but she’s only really famous among the local cops who have to escort her home every night. For whatever reason, she hasn’t found any romantic interests yet, although her Imaginary Friend/Paparazzi, Bobo or Peanut or whatever, might be a contender if she were to be our next torch holder.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 9.01.58 PM

Owner of the scary eyebrows, Barium is an avid lover of the planet and protector of the environment. Just don’t talk to him about how his beloved television and video games are also using energy. He’s romantically involved with a fellow holder of the scary eyebrows, Wren.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 9.02.17 PM

Lanthanum loves horses, although he doesn’t have that trait… or that expansion pack. : / His actual traits are a bit eh, but he’s got character whether or not his official traits say he does or not. He’s not seeing anyone but some girls in town have made it clear that they’re interested through heart-farts.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 9.02.37 PM

Cerium Mendeleev enjoys symmetry and cooking… as long as water isn’t involved. She’s also a PARTY POOPER who won’t build a snowman with me…

Cerium: My picture is already off-center, can you at least do the commentary right?

Ahem. Cerium has a romantic interest in Arnold Kahn, a boy whose mother is nemeses with Antimony. So she’s got the ‘uniting our families before this grows into a blood feud’ thing going for her.

And Dym…

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 9.03.15 PM

Didn’t seem to realize that taking a bath would subject him to the horrors of water.

Stop crying so I can snap a picture, Dym.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 9.03.28 PM

Praseodymium is the last of the kids to be born, and our halfway point, so he’s a pretty big deal already. He’s been failing school, but his new workaholic trait might change that in the future, and most of his evil schemes involve terminating the existence of water. He’s currently seeing a girl named Trinity, about whom little is known, but her clothing matches, at least.
