All in the Family

Hey guys!

… that’s it. Don’t know what else to say.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.30.35 PM

So I was watching the house and realized I had no idea where Samarium was… apparently she’d ended up at someone else’s house after school. Probably from one of those ‘can so-and-so go home with what’s-his-face after school?’ prompts.

… I should probably start reading those.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.31.38 PM

Cerium: SAMARIUM. You KNOW that if you’re going to go late-night hot tubbing, you’re supposed to invite ME.

Samarium: Mom! You’d embarrass me!

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.32.05 PM

Samarium: Dad, on the other hand…


She made that little ‘pss, hot’ finger thing, too. D8

Anyway I remembered that I still had teen actions I could use, ’cause sending them to prom shouldn’t even count and I don’t care if I used the teen actions. No one’s gonna condemn me for breaking up the little family get-together Sam and Europium have.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.41.55 PM

Europium: So, er… I was thinking we might want to consider breaking off the romantic stuff and just being friends. And by ‘friends’ I mean ‘cousins’. We’re cousins, Samarium.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.42.11 PM

Samarium: I can’t believe you’d do this to me, Europium! Do you KNOW how much it’s gonna hurt when I see you at family reunions? Do you?

Europium: Exactly. FAMILY reunions.
Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.42.38 PM

Samarium: Whatever. You obviously don’t have a brain if you can’t see what you’re missing out on.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.42.59 PM

Europium: So… um. Have you read the latest Miss Marvel?

Samarium: Oh. Yeah. It was really good.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.44.40 PM

Family outing to the pool was uneventful.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.47.21 PM

Except that Samarium refused to go and instead danced her heartbreak away.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.00.16 PM

An imaginary friend contacted us.

*sprays holy water at it*

I just get worried when the Imaginary Friends are like ‘HEY WE’RE FUNCTIONING LIKE NORMAL SIMS’ because that tells me something’s up with the game. : /

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.01.01 PM

Other things that tell me something’s up with the game: Cerium drinking coffee for four hours. It wasn’t her day to be controlled but I finally had to cancel the interaction.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.01.29 PM

The four hours of coffee didn’t even have any effect, so she passed out after work. Glorious.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.02.25 PM

Zombie: *dies again*

Elderly zombies are the worst.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.02.54 PM

Cerium: Hey, guys! It’s my birthday! Guys? Guys??

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.03.15 PM

Arnold: Oh no, the poor zombie!

June: So tragic. : (

Samarium: Hey, why doesn’t anyone care about MY tragedy???

Cerium: Guys?? Doesn’t anyone want to burst into my bedroom and blow noisemakers for an hour???

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.03.53 PM


Other Zombie: I know someone’s dying and it’s sad and stuff, but OMIGOD IT’S WREN.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.04.37 PM

Cerium: … guys?

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.06.43 PM

No, Silver. Not gonna happen.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.08.02 PM

Then Arnold had a birthday because his fairy lifespan is WAY too long.

Silver: WOOOO! Yeah! The older you get, the closer you are to dying and coming to ME, stud muffin. đŸ˜‰

June: … my hair is broken.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.17.51 PM

Europium started a painting.

It will never be finished.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.26.55 PM

And then it was Samarium’s birthday!

Aging up in a huge puddle in the bathroom.

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.41.55 PM

Samarium: Aren’t I gorgeous?

Yes, now get out of the house and stop hitting on family members.

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 8.51.05 AM

I gave Europium a bit of an early birthday the next day. I have no idea which TH is supposed to be on which day and I’ve been wanting to have a new house for a while now, but thought I’d wait for Europium to take over.

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 9.02.24 AM

His final trait is never nude. : P

I changed his hair so it would be consistent with the top hat he has on for formalwear.

*flips table*

Welcome back to the Mendeleev ISBI! The youngest of this generation, Samarium and Europium, have just become teens. The game doesn’t register them as cousins, but that’s not gonna be a big dea…

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.28.11 PM


Er… mentions of incest in this chapter, if that bothers you. : /

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.28.31 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.28.37 PM

NO. You two are NOT allowed to have a romantic relationship with one another, much less a Slap Slap Kiss Ben 10 dealie.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.35.41 PM

Paparazzi: Oh, look. A Mendeleev in a sleeping bag. Front page news!

… isn’t there something better you could be reporting on?

Paparazzi: Honestly I’m trying to get the scoop on Sam and Europium’s illicit love affair.

They’re not in a relationship, okay? They just see one another as attractive, which isn’t incorrect, and completely understandable what with the surge of hormones and all.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.38.41 PM

Weird sim spent the entire school day standing in front of the building and doing the university cheer.

Colleges are getting really into advertising for new students, apparently.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.40.00 PM

Hey, Europium! And Samarium, if you swing that way. Check out this girl who’s not related to you!

Do either of you think that she’s attractive? Please?

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.40.14 PM

Europium: Eh.

Samarium: If I do turn out to be bi, she’s not doing it for me. : /

Sarah: … I’m right here, guys.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.41.37 PM


Barium: It actually fell out a while ago. I don’t like people to know I wear a wig.

Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.

Barium: … you’re posting this to your blog, aren’t you.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.50.06 PM

I noticed this on the beds and got more excited than I should have. So you have to look at it too.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.52.04 PM

Promethium: So, in conclusion, I’d be really thrilled if you considered looking at girls other than my sister.

Europium: … but why would you want that? Samarium is gorgeous.

Promethium: … aren’t you proper? How is incest proper?

Europium: It’s not uncommon for cousins to have married in royal lineages.

Promethium: … crap.

Then Prom happened.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.53.07 PM

Okay. Sam’s Prom Queen. Europium didn’t get Prom King, so everything should be o..

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.53.42 PM


Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.54.01 PM


Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.55.40 PM

Samarium: Geez, I can’t even get to sleep now. I can’t stop thinking about how good the dinner at prom was.


Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.56.58 PM

Cerium: So… our kids are practically dating now?

Wren: I knew I shouldn’t have joined this family. : /

Okay, desperate times call for desperate measures. The house was full, so I had to kick out Promethium and Neodymium first.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.59.00 PM

Samarium: I don’t get why but I’m supposed to turn you into a person.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 5.59.13 PM

June: DAMN your cousin is hot.

Samarium: I know, but don’t even think about it. He’s mine.

Yes. YES think about it. Please.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 6.01.51 PM

June: … her dad’s pretty cute, too.


Next time maybe we’ll have a new torch holder? I don’t have that much room left for pictures so I’m trying to stretch that a bit until I figure out where I want to host the pictures after that’s full.

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 6.10.42 PM

… because obviously there aren’t any true rumors people could be spreading. : /

Killer Eyebrows

I have used up 78% of my pictures what is this even.
How many generations has it even been.

… is this generation 5/6 (TH/offspring), not counting our founder Krypton???

Let’s say yes?
Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.41.14 PM

Barium: … did you just wet yourself?

Cerium: … no?

Barium: Why are you acting embarrassed, then?

Cerium: I have no idea.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.42.28 PM

Promethium had a birthday.

Promethium: … now can you please get out of my room? It’s almost midnight.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.42.46 PM


Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.42.58 PM

I think Promethium’s nose is a bit softer than his dad’s, but that’s pretty much it.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.43.09 PM

Arnold: … I always knew you would replace me.

Sam: Wait what.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.43.58 PM

Barium: Now that you’re a young adult, perhaps you would like to take up photography?

Promethium: … I don’t take life advice from people with bowls stuck to their appendages.

Samarium: Why am I still here.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.44.48 PM

Samarium: Woo! I’m past tired and into DELIRIOUS tired!

Promethium: Please leave.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.45.30 PM

… I thought that wish to marry Arnold at first.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.46.31 PM

Samarium: … why are you cooking when you could just grab some pie.

Promethium: Pie isn’t breakfast food.

Samarium: Two AM isn’t breakfast, it’s a midnight snack.


Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.47.06 PM

… you are not a good role model.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.47.52 PM


Sam: I also need to pee.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.48.25 PM


Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.49.23 PM


Promethium: … what is your dad doing?

Europium: Just don’t make eye contact.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.50.00 PM


Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.50.29 PM

Europium: Neo, what if there’s a clown hiding in our house?

Neo: This house is full of clowns. And none of them are hiding.

This family.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.53.13 PM

… why are you in your wedding dress?

Cerium: I’m going to renew my vows with Arnold.

That’s not an interaction in this game.

Cerium: Then I guess I can go to my son’s graduation.

Ooh! Graduation means that everyone’s in their formal. I can show you how cute Europium looks in his…

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.53.44 PM

… tuxedo.

The legacy lives on.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.54.08 PM

I thought this was going to be a disaster until I remembered we had a motive mobile.

Coolie oolies.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.55.00 PM

Wait, Ellie???

Actually is from another sim family. I was too lazy to make the mom of the family so I just plucked Ellie out of the bin and changed her name and stuff.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.55.58 PM

Look, it’s the girl we briefly kidnapped. : P

Andromeda: Don’t make eye contact…

Apparently the stress of nearly being a legacy spouse has caused her to begin going bald.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.58.43 PM

Promethium: Guess who has two thumbs and just graduated!!

Wren: … we don’t actually register as being related after the move, so this bores me.

… I checked, and if I wanted we could actually ‘keep it in the family’ with the way the relationships between the cousins are. Not that I would, but the ‘no incest’ block that’s normally in place doesn’t seem to be there.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.59.59 PM

… are you going to change out of your dress, Cerium?

Cerium: … not as long as I can still fit in it.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.00.25 PM

Europium gets a pass because this is fainting from cowardice. Apparently there was a monster under the bed.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.00.55 PM

The cell phone woke him up.

Europium: No, I am not going to run around town finding semi-precious stones for you. Never call me again, or my eyebrows will find you, and I can’t be held accountable for what they do to you.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.01.21 PM

I’ve been playing this for years and I still come across things I don’t think I’ve seen before. Someone was playing the horror channel on the TV and it scared Europium.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.23.17 PM

Samarium aged up as a teen and she’s… flirty? I think that’s right.

At first I was like ‘ugh, that hair has to change.’

And then I thought.



It must never change.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.27.43 PM

Samarium: … is my hair even possible?

Europium: Tell your fairy friends I’m not going to Neverland.

Tinkerbell: *sad twinkle sound*

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.28.46 PM

Samarium: MOM! There’s a weird llama fantasizing about Neo at the door!

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.38.27 PM

Europium grew up proper.

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 8.39.25 PM

Europium: Father, it is not proper birthday protocol to eat hot dogs when the cake has been set out, and certainly not with a bowl attached to your hand.

Wren: Woo, Europium! When can I stop cheering?

Europium: And Samarium is facing in the wrong direction.

Barium: Shut up and eat your cake.

Hey, I haven’t had time much for the Mendeleevs with real life stuff, but I made you a thing to make up for it.







Other ones.


Long ago, the Mendeleev legacy lived in harmony.

Then, everything changed when a real life job attacked.

Only the Mendeleev, master of all 118 elements, could stop it. But when the world needed him most…










… he vanish. đŸ˜¥

A hundred years passed and my subscribers and I discovered a new Mendeleev, Europium.

Screen Shot 2015-05-17 at 3.41.10 PM

And although his hairbending skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone.

But I believe Europium can save the world. LOL NOPE.

… this is what I think about during work.
