Wrapping Up

Hey guys, I planned to have this generation wrapped up by the end of the year, and by golly I’m making it happen!

First, the winner of our heir poll.

Hey, Barium. You’re heir.

Barium: Seriously? You had to interrupt my game for that?

Well, fine. : /

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.14.44 AM

Hey, Cerium. You’re heir.

Cerium: But… the promise of a symmetrical house when I moved out was the only thing keeping me going! I think I’m gonna be sick…

They’re both thrilled.

Yes, we had a tie, so I thought it would only be fair to have dual heirs. I could have had a second poll, but then that would have taken more time and, as stated, I was trying to get this generation wrapped up by 2015.

I’m planning to alternate between Cerium and Barium, only controlling one each day, unless people think I should just control both of them? I feel like controlling two sims at once would be, like, spoiling me or something, though.

Cerium: Come and get it, Mangle.

THE HOUSE ISN’T THAT BAD, CERIUM.

So we have five days to get Antimony to get through the last level of her career, since that’s when Barium becomes a young adult.

Antimony: Please, I’ve got this in the bag.

Just go back to skilling logic; I’ve never paid attention to how much collecting spirits and such actually affects the progress bar, so I want all the help we can get with this.

Meanwhile, Silver and Antione were busy helping the other kids feel better about themselves, I guess.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.19.27 AM

Antione: Well… you’re a workaholic, right? You could always get a desk job. You’d like that, right?

Dym: … I guess, dad.

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.19.37 AM

Silver: You could get a job playing video games if you’re not heir, right? That’s a thing people can do now?

Lanthanum: … Barium’s the one that plays video games. I like horses.

Silver: … what’s a horse.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.25.49 AM

Dym: Why would you do this to me, Mom? You know I’d be the best heir!

Antimony: You know I don’t get to decide who inherits the house, Dym. And you’re wearing a t-shirt in the Arctic Circle.

Dym: But it’s a SWEATSHIRT t-shirt!

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.28.13 AM

Antimony: *completely stops in place* Omigod, she has the exact same hat as me… I mean, not exactly… in a different color… but this is so awkward! What do I do? What do I do?

… walk up to the counter like a normal person?

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.30.41 AM

Thank you for showing us once again why you’re not the heir, Caesium.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.31.18 AM

And this kid is STILL scorched.

I didn’t care enough to wait for the gate to render.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.32.18 AM

Silver: Wow, Antione, I didn’t know you went back to school.

Antione: This isn’t homework, it’s a sketch pad.

Silver: Aren’t you going to do homework, Lanthanum?

Lanthanum: Sure, let me get it out. I keep it in my liver so I won’t lose it.

Silver: And where’s Dym?

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.33.04 AM

Dym: Aw yeah, I’m gettin’ some tonight!

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.33.22 AM

Gideon: How DARE you come here in hopes of corrupting my pure, innocent little niece? You’re disgusting! Like a half-eaten chicken leg growing mold!

Dym: … innocent?

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.33.47 AM

Katja: Lucy, if you keep having your brother bring home teenage boys from school, people are going to start talking.

Raz: Wait… you were having me bring home clients for you?

Katja: Go take a bath, Raz.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.34.51 AM

Dym: I suppose I shall drown my sorrows, then.

Go home, please.

Dym: Make me.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.36.35 AM

Three guesses who is going to end up taken home by the cops. And the first two don’t count.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.38.29 AM

Aaand we got our first second glitched job! The little kids’ block table was haunted, but it was all scratched up, too, which I’m guessing was the reason there were no interactions with it. I tried to delete the table in hopes something else would get haunted, or it would change to registering 4 haunted objects, but no luck.

Our first glitched job had been cancelled because of pregnancy, so it almost didn’t count.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.39.42 AM

Dym was also taken home by the police.

Caesium: See? At least I didn’t pass out in the middle of the floor after!

BECAUSE YOU PASSED OUT BEFOREHAND.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.41.20 AM

Hey, Annie, how’d the glitched job go?

Antimony: Alright. I’m not too far from a promotion so it doesn’t really matter.

But what happened after you gave up on the job?

Antimony: No idea what you mean.

Weren’t you about to cuddle the woman who hired you on her couch? : /

Antimony: Um.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.42.37 AM

Caesium: Doo do doo, sneaking out for school…

Dammit, I forgot to let her off the hook.

Antimony: I DON’T THINK SO YOUNG LADY.

*sigh* Let her off the hook.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.44.03 AM

… thanks, Silver. We needed that painting.

Silver: No problem!

It’s even more of a let-down because every time I get a message that she’s finished a painting and go to check on it, the game renders the finished version of the portrait before the ‘unfinished-ness’ renders, and it gets my hopes up.
Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.48.09 AM

Silver: How DARE you sneak out to go to school, young lady!

Caesium: Take a hike, Grandma. This is getting old.

Silver: That icon isn’t HIKING. It’s JOGGING.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.49.44 AM

We spotted Barium’s lover while Antimony was out on one of her jobs, and… er… no one looks good in some of those Supernatural hairs. If anyone knows of a sim that looks good with that hair, please show me. I’d love to see it.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.52.23 AM

Much better.

I ship it.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.53.17 AM

Antimony: Thanks for not taking a picture of that spirit.

How was I to know that little ghostie would be the thing to push you over the limit and promote you to level 10?

Antimony: Whatever. I fulfilled my LTW.

Aw yeah, and there’s still some time to spare.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.54.56 AM

Antimony: Hi, I just got promoted and… I can’t retire yet? I won’t get a pension? Okay, never mind then. I’ll keep my job for a bit longer.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.55.56 AM

We got a Spirit Positioning Device for level 10, which is cool, but I don’t feel like following Antimony around town and finding 50 spirits to fulfill some wish. So she’s got off now.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.57.25 AM

Time to catch up on video games?

Antimony: Sh, I’m trying to make this wolf befriend this rab… well, shoot.

simanimals_4a

You will be missed, sweet rabbit…

I think the whole ‘make a predator befriend its prey’ quest and the subsequent bunny genocide was the reason I stopped playing that game however long ago it was.

That and it was super awkward when my parents were watching me force deer to mate at the game’s request.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.58.07 AM

Speaking of dying, when are you going to die?

She’s 100 days old now, and we’re kind of just about ready to get on with the next generation…

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.58.21 AM

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 9.58.37 AM

And then everyone wanted to date Antimony all at once. : /

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.03.17 AM

Wren came home with Barium, but ended up talking with Cerium most of the time. Which isn’t a problem. If they’ll be living in the same house, they should get along, right?

Wren: You have a lovely smile, Cerium.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.03.31 AM

Cerium: What are you even thinking? My teeth aren’t perfectly symmetrical! It’s an abomination!

Wren: I’m… sorry?

Forget what I said about getting along.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.07.19 AM

Did I even give you that dress, Caesium?

Caesium: I thought I should look classy when I play the grand piano. Like a professional.

Makes sense. Continue.

Caesium: *plinks out ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’*

Then I got a notice saying it was Caesium’s birthday… Barium was apparently a day younger than her, somehow, and Lanthanum was two days younger than her. So birthday party for all so that everyone would be the same age.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.10.28 AM

 

Silver: Ooh, a birthday party? Here’s hoping I live to see it!

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.11.03 AM

I’m sure the bad sushi you just ate will do wonders for your health. : /

Silver: I don’t feel so good…

She got invited on a date, and she’s single, being that Quan died, so why not?

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.12.08 AM

The guy’s name is Louis Sneed or something along those lines.

I thought it was related to a Lorax, but that’s a Thneed.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.12.39 AM

Louis: You’ve come, my star! I scheduled our date in the park in case your heart gave out!

Silver: That’s… considerate.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.14.04 AM

… so this werewolf is presumably Arnold’s father? His surname is Kahn, so I’m guessing they’re related somehow.

Kahnwolf: I’m just waiting for the hookers to show up.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.14.16 AM

Severna: Looks like my run is up, now that my hair’s begun to thin. : /

I don’t think anyone’s looking at your hair.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.15.31 AM

And then birthday party!

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.15.58 AM

And Silver made it home!

Silver: I live to see my grandchildren grow up!

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.17.13 AM

Caesium: Hey, I decided to shower instead of go to the cake like you wanted me to, so I’m growing up now!

Oh Caesium. : /

Well, it means Lanthanum can use that cake rather than me needing to replace one with a third cake.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 10.17.31 AM

Cerium: WHERE ARE YOU GOING, DUMBASS?

Barium: … to see my sister’s birthday?

I’d been playing for a while and there were a good number of pictures, so the kids will be given new styles next time, and we’ll see their new traits and meet our new TH, yeah? Until next time!

Which is likely next year.

One thought on “Wrapping Up

  1. “Oh Caesium” seems to be the phrase of the day. That’s why I love her, she’s so hilariously idiotic. But probably wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining when being controlled, so glad she’s not heir. I like the idea of controlling one TH per day – means we may get some funnies from the other TH on an idiot day 🙂

    Also, Yttrium is going to be the spouse of my gen 3 heir in my Epic Legacy, in case you’d like to check it out. epicrourke.wordpress.com
