Terbium’s Return

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. šŸ˜‰

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.16.55 PM

Terbium: Really, dad? Tracer?

Europium: I… uh… like her sprays.

Terbium: …sure.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.17.24 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.17.39 PM

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!

Europium: *seethes*

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.45.25 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.46.23 PM

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!

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.47.21 PM

Terbium: Dude. Don’t go sneaking around people’s houses like a burglar. That’s how people get disappeared.

Paparazzi: Er… okay…

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.57.24 PM

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 onesĀ IĀ 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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.02.04 PM

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?

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.03.18 PM

… 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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.04.10 PM

… this might explain it.

Europium: I’m next, kid.

Gadolinium: Not if I jab a metal tray through your wrist!

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.04.26 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.05.23 PM

Before I forget, here’s Gadolinium. You saw him last chapter. Moving on.

He’s a loner now though.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.06.17 PM

Graduation. Whatever.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.06.34 PM
Cosmo wanted to come out for graduation. I have know idea where Cosmo even is… probably in Arnold’s inventory, actually.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.07.56 PM

Terbium was voted most likely to take over the world.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.08.01 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 2.08.16 PM

… 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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.07.37 PM

Terbium: Yes! Now that little rat that stole my name will be exhausted! They’ll pass out, losing points, and thenĀ I’llĀ be the favorite!

Actually Erbium has a sleeping bag.

Terbium: Shoot!

Now let’s focus on finding potential mates. There’s a guy your age in your relationship panel, so maybe we’ll start there.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.09.16 PM

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…

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.09.49 PM


Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.10.54 PM

… 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?

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.12.03 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.12.20 PM

Oh hey, it’s the weird stalker bartender.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.12.42 PM

Andromeda: *gasp* Hey! Your family tried to kidnap me once!

It’s in the past, Andromeda. GAWD get over it!

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.13.10 PM

Terbium: Your boring-ass drink, sir.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.13.59 PM

That boring ass drink broke Terbium’s hand.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.15.22 PM

Alberto: Did you know that your uncle’s a light sleeper?

Terbium: I also know that my uncle is HAWT.

Oh god no.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.15.41 PM

Promethium: We have so much in common…

Like your last names? And DNA?

At least with this one we can blame the alcohol…

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.17.36 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.20.04 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.23.42 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.24.03 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.24.33 PM

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?

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 5.24.59 PM

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.
