Wowww I’ve been gone forever. I mean, actually not a long time compared to a lot of the legacies I’ve followed… which I should probably get caught up on now that I’m out of college… but a long time for me? I guess?
I don’t know. What is time, anyway? Time is for nerds.
Anyway, two chapters ago, we ended with Erbium having a slumber party.
We need to go back two chapters because the LAST chapter ended with our TH Terbium being sacrificed to the void, and I hadn’t saved during the whole thing because I haven’t learned anything, it seems.
… not going to do anything more productive with your last day as Torch Holder, Europium?
Europium: I already gave up the title once already. And I’m hoping that June will come by like in last chapter. 😉
Failing that, he hung out with the maid some while Arnold played some mood music.
Meanwhile, Erbium was invited over to Remus’ house. He’s off screen doing homework like a NERD.
Romulus: Lookin’ forward to puberty, lil’ bro? This is what it does to ya. Body hair everywhere.
Remus: … aren’t we twins?
Terbium: Yo, I was watching that.
Europium: It’s Netflix, you can pick up where you left off. But if last chapter is correct, then if I sit here and play videogames then your mother will come and–
Terbium: Ew. Yeah. I know.
Terbium: Really, dad? Tracer?
Europium: I… uh… like her sprays.
Terbium: Also, Junkrat’s the best character. JSYK.
Europium: … is there really nothing else we could be talking about?
Terbium: We’ve been gone for over a month, Dad. We need to be topical.
Terbium: Wowww, how did you NOT see that rocket coming for you?
Europium: You’re distracting me, Terbium.
Terbium: ‘Kay, I’ll just leave you to your–
Terbium: WHOOPS! It’s my birthday. Gotta put your game down now!
I forgot what hair and clothes Terbium had the last time, so here’s how she looks now. If anyone prefers her first YA look, feel free to tell me and I will do nothing about it. Because I’m lazy like that.
Also her final trait is Angler, so I went with the Perfect Aquarium because I’ve never finished that one before. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem in the middle of a DESERT.
Terbium: Heyyy! New paparazzi! Wanna come jump with me?
Paparazzi: I can’t get on the trampoline, but I’ll take this as an invitation to go in your house.
Terbium: … the heck, man!
Terbium: Dude. Don’t go sneaking around people’s houses like a burglar. That’s how people get disappeared.
Paparazzi: Er… okay…
Terbium: But you’re cute for a face one, so I’ll give you some advice. Stock up on non-irradiated water. ‘Cause after I catch a bunch of fish I’m gonna irradiate the Earth’s water and kill all the fish so that the ones I have will be perfect by default.
Paparazzi: … er…
Terbium: You can tell I’m not lying ’cause I’ve already been dabbling in radiation. There’s a necklace growing out of my body.
… actually Terbium can be radioactive, but most radioactive isotopes have really short half-lives. Like, some less than a minute. Fun Terbium fact to share with your friends.
I plopped a park with a pond down so that Terbium could actually fish.
… very far away from the water.
Terbium: I look very nice right now and I don’t want any fish splashing nasty fish-water on me, okay?
… are we sure these fish aren’t irradiated already?
At about this time, I kept getting notifications that we were losing money in quick succession, 11 simoleons at a time.
… this might explain it.
Europium: I’m next, kid.
Gadolinium: Not if I jab a metal tray through your wrist!
Holmium: Maybe we should get one of those ticket things for the pizza oven. Like they have at a deli or something.
Erbium: That would be more efficient, but it’s also pretty entertaining listening to the bloodbath in the morning.
Before I forget, here’s Gadolinium. You saw him last chapter. Moving on.
He’s a loner now though.
Cosmo wanted to come out for graduation. I have know idea where Cosmo even is… probably in Arnold’s inventory, actually.
Terbium was voted most likely to take over the world.
Gadolinium is most likely to burn the house down… which we won’t give him a chance to do because the house is full and we need room for Terbium to properly be Torch Holder.
… good job, Arnold.
Actually most of the family is miserable at this point. Terbium took the Motive Mobile and left the others to fend for themselves.
Terbium: Yes! Now that little rat that stole my name will be exhausted! They’ll pass out, losing points, and then I’ll be the favorite!
Actually Erbium has a sleeping bag.
Now let’s focus on finding potential mates. There’s a guy your age in your relationship panel, so maybe we’ll start there.
Alberto: I just love love love grilled cheese! It really puts some sunshine in my step!
Terbium: I hate art.
This date is… not going very well. But we’ll keep at it, because Alberto seems familiar for some reason, and I just can’t place it…
… so that’s why he seemed familiar.
Terbium: You look nothing like our maid, though.
Alberto: Oh, I got plastic surgery to fix my chronic Face One Syndrome. Do you like it?
Terbium: I like it enough to get you drunk. : P
Alberto may not have face one anymore but he definitely has a face one taste in drinks.
Oh hey, it’s the weird stalker bartender.
Andromeda: *gasp* Hey! Your family tried to kidnap me once!
It’s in the past, Andromeda. GAWD get over it!
Terbium: Your boring-ass drink, sir.
That boring ass drink broke Terbium’s hand.
Alberto: Did you know that your uncle’s a light sleeper?
Terbium: I also know that my uncle is HAWT.
Oh god no.
Promethium: We have so much in common…
Like your last names? And DNA?
At least with this one we can blame the alcohol…
Alberto: What the hell, Terbium? I got a drink with you and came to your house, but that doesn’t mean you can just kiss me whenever you want!
Terbium: Okay, but buying that drink screwed my hand up. Will you at least move in with me?
Alberto: Oh, yeah. Sure.
It’s a good thing Terbium isn’t pursuing the criminal path if Alberto wants to be a police officer.
I’m not even sure if he’s going to be her spouse, but at the time it seemed like a fun idea to move our maid into the household.
Terbium: Maybe another drink will loosen up my hand.
That’s precisely why I bought the bar that I’m likely going to regret immediately.
Erbium: Oh, so are you the live-in maid now? I guess I can leave this here, then.
Alberto: I can see why Terbium calls you a little shit.
Terbium: Hey, I didn’t even need to drink this to fix my hand!
So we’re going to put the drink down now?
Terbium: Why let it go to waste?
And then I needed to show off Terbium’s cute swimwear.
So… what’s gonna happen in the next generation? Will Alberto help bring the next generation or will we kick him to the curb? I have no idea I haven’t played further than this.
