So I tried to put in a mod that would let me overstuff the household, since we have six adults in the house and this generation will have two kids in it unless the grandparents die in a timely manner. And I always feel morbid while waiting for a sim to die.
So we start Barium’s day at TH with him eating a hot dog, and his needs are all full, so that’s great. Time to go hit up the elixir store!
While I’m remembering, might as well check on Arnold’s traits and LTW.
He is indeed a virtuoso, which explains his magnetic attraction to the family instruments (he’s stolen the majority of them for his inventory) as well as being neat, a workaholic, an angler, and star quality.
And his LTW… not happening.
Thanks, but that’s kind of the opposite of what I want. I want Arnold to be aging up with Cerium as much as the next person (and I completely forgot that I could just cake him until I saw comments to age them up together *is a fail simmer*) but I would rather not have the two of them living forevers and evers.
Hey Krypton, long time no see!
I have no idea why he’s fainting. I mean, he probably saw a ghost, but… I didn’t see any others out there?
The mods I added for some reason made it so that the game lagged for an ungodly amount of time whenever I tried to have Barium try to interact with an elixir in his pocket. Didn’t bog down using any other items that I could tell, not even the chemistry table potions. Just the elixirs. Which is bad, as he needs to use fifteen more for his LTW.
So I had him read a book on how to make a job performance booster elixir, whatever it’s called. It’s not like it takes all that long to use the elixirs once you already have it, and the kids of the generation will be far apart in age if I don’t overstuff the household, so I figured I’d at least try?
Barium: Why am I helping my sister with her LTW?
Because it’s not a contest? : /
Cerium: Look, Barium! I’m going to have a baby that’s EIGHT TIMES as cute as yours!
Barium: It totally IS a contest!
Because you two are making it into one. : /
Now go collect some smoky quartz so you can make the liquid job booster. This will help both of you with your LTWs.
Then I discovered that Antione had THIS in his pocket… along with like forty sketches from the sketchbook, but those aren’t actually impressive. Where in the world did a Vampire’s Eye come from?
Antione: A… vampire?
Cake Platter: I have successfully escaped the legacy lot. I’m FREEEE! FREEEEEEEE!
… Barium, would you go pick that up and wash it?
Cerium: Booooo! BOOOOOO!
She’s not even in the room with you, Cerium. Take a chill pill.
Everyone lines up to interact with Neo. It’s pretty funny.
Wren: But… it’s my baby.
… thankfully, Cerium’s not in bed to have Arnold wake her up when he plops the drums down in her bedroom.
Thankfully, she’s not even in the room, or he might hear some choice words about throwing off the room’s symmetry.
This one is definitely her father’s daughter; even I can distinctly see his facial features in her. Hopefully she’s not a clone, but I don’t think she is, because her eyebrows are not nearly as scary as his were.
Now we can turn random sims into fairies!
… if we actually had the ingredients for it.
We need to collect a bunch of ingredients for any of the more interesting elixirs, really. Actually…
One of the most fun elixirs to have is the flask of bees one, and you can pretty much ensure that you’ll have the ingredients for it by having some bee boxes, so Barium bought a bunch of bee boxes.
If Barium bravely bought a bunch of bee boxes, how many bee boxes did Barium bravely buy?
‘Cause we got a little convoy
Rockin’ through the night
Yeah, we got a little convoy
Ain’t she a beautiful sight?
Antione got called out to work right after Cerium went out to the library.
Aw, Barium is bonding with Arnold autonomously!
Arnold: So, can I borrow a camera? I thought if I sent some ‘pictures’ to Cerium it might make her come home… if you know what I mean.
Barium: One: NO! Two: Ew! Three: You have a camera on your phone!
… never mind, then.
Neo: Red pill or blue pill? I’ll take a third option and EAT YOUR HEAD OFF!
Aren’t children precious?
The uncontrollable sims in this house sure think so.
Barium: But… I wanted to give her a bottle!
He stood there and waited for her to finish, and promptly gave her a second bottle.
Huh, looks like the paparazzi woman decided to switch jobs after her last one ended with her getting bees and things thrown at her. Now she’s Cerium’s boss.
Let’s befriend her! 8D
Cerium: …So that’s why I really really hate water.
Eugenia: WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME THIS.
Nothing like a glitchy Imaginary Friend to assure you that your game is working perfectly. : /
Arnold, being the dirty cheat that he is, swiped this from the claw machine using his fairy powers. I think I named it Samus, but I’m not sure?
Oh, no. It’s Kirby.
NOTHING LIKE A BOOK WITH NO NAME TO ASSURE YOU THAT THE GAME IS WORKING RIGHT? *frantically deletes*
Cerium: So, do you like Key Lime Pie? I can make a mean Key Lime Pie. I’ll make one for you, if you want! I’ll make EIGHT pies for you!
Eugenia: … are you bribing me?
Cerium: … Nnyes?
Caught Wren getting off the phone with her father. While hiding in one of the tiny little bathroom stalls.
Wren: You can prove nothing.
Methinks we might just get a phone call from a Mr. Knight expounding on his certain set of skills.
And then Mulan had a swimwear party, so I thought why not? And why not bring Eugenia so we can work on getting the relationship up a bit more?
Mulan: This stinks. Someone better clean up before party.
… you’re the only one who lives here.
Cerium: So… I’m incredibly cold. But let’s talk cooking some more.
Thank Heavens Seasons isn’t installed right now. : /
Lynda: The television broke, and the scary woman is making me play bass for entertainment. I fear for my life… help me… please…
Fairy: This lady’s party sucks.
Katja: I don’t know… the bassist is pretty good.
Mulan: *sob* WHY IS EVERYTHING I DO FAILURE?
Because you half-ass everything, Mulan.
Eugenia: Well, you’re my friend now, so let’s hug!
Cerium: Finally! Warmth!
Cerium: By the way, did you know your face is the most symmetrical I’ve seen?
Just kidding, Cerium went into labor a few minutes after I had to switch TH.
Cerium: Okay, I need a sink, stat. Everything needs to be sterile before, during, and after the birth.
Barium: SOMEONE PAY ATTENTION TO ME.
NOT NOW, YOUR SISTER IS GIVING BIRTH IN THE SNOW.
Eugenia: Well, I’m tired. See you later, new friend! : )
So, meet the new baby…
Hold on a second…
Meet the new baby, Promethium! He’s a little boy who is… um…
Oh, yes! A clumsy light-sleeper. He’s also a fairy.
He’s also under the floor. Cerium, did you drop the baby through the floor?
Cerium: I had to go wash my hands!
I just happened to see this while checking if the kid was a fairy in her relationship panel.
Cerium: I want to quit work now.
Because you had a baby? You want to be a stay-at-home mom?
Cerium: It’s not just that. I don’t want to work for a woman who’d leave me out in the snow, in labor, wearing a bathing suit.
That’s… fair enough.
