Sleeping With The Fishes

Hey, folks! Last time on the Mendeleev legacy… um… what happened?


Oh, Arnold died. Thanks for reminding me with synchronized mourning.


Erbium: Um, less synchronized mourning, more paying attention to me. I’m gonna be a teen. Grandpa may not be here physically, but he is here in spirit. And in a bubble floating above my head.


Erbium loves the outdoors now.


Oh, that’s right. Terbium’s also pregnant now. She takes time off from fishing–which I’m not going to take pictures of unless I have a reason to–and reads a pregnancy book.


Alberto: Can I get that for you, Mrs. Mendeleev?

June: It’s so nice having a live-in maid.

Alberto: I’m not… let me go wash this.


I tried to get a nice teen picture of Erbium, but they had other plans.


There we go. I love them.


Terbium got an invitation to go to Dysprosium’s party.

Terbium: Wow, sis, you really let yourself go, what with your shitty randomized outfit.

Dysprosium: I could say the same to you.

Terbium: I’m pregnant, you ass. At least I’m not sending up stink beacons!

Terbium hasn’t bathed since she’s aged up, I’m pretty sure.


Terbium: Gadolinium! Is this where you’re living now? It’s so nicely decorated. I hate it.

Elsa: SOON.

Maybe I should pay attention to the other family members.


Erbium: So… are you gonna go out and get bugs to sell or something?

Alberto: What.

Erbium: I’m asking how you’re contributing to the family.

Alberto: Um, I’m the eye candy.

Erbium: Yeah no that’s my job.


Baby time!

And it’s great timing, too. I was just about to send Terbium home to feed the fishes.

Terbium: I’m gonna feed YOU to the fishes if you don’t send me to the damn hospital! *attempts to claw baby out of womb*


It’s a girl-creature named Thulium! Her traits are excitable and friendly.


And then this happened immediately after Terbium brought the kid home. I was confused at first because I forgot that Erbium would have been left home. I thought the game was proposing I leave the newborn alone for two days.

Either way, I cancelled the opportunity. I had plans.


… or not.

Terbium: You at least saved this time, right?

Yeah we didn’t lose anything other than buying some rewards with Terb’s LTH points, and they were the travelling rewards which are pointless if we can’t… you know… travel.


Unable to abandon Alberto in a crypt, we settled for the next best thing.

Alberto: Guys? …why am I out here?

I got one free command for you, sucker!


Goldfish: … this is boring.

Toad: It could be worse. You could have ended up like that other goldfish she used as bait.

Goldfish: Wat.

It’s awkward because we caught the toad while using another goldfish as bait. Yeah…


Alberto: Good-bye cruel world!

Time to continue on with our black widow thing!


Terbium: Now that he’s dead, I’m a bachelorette again, right?

Oh… I don’t think they ever actually got married.

Terbium: Yeah, we did. You were there for it. You took pictures.


Terbium: I’m a bachelorette now. Throw me a party.


… I thought I finally found some guys that weren’t old.

For obvious reasons, we can’t exactly use other Mendeleevs. Terbium has some guys in her cell phone that are young, though, so it should be fine.


Erbium: Hi, baby! I’m your… um… Auntcle Erbium. I’m here to feed you so I can ignore the gnawing hunger in my own stomach.

… and you can’t grab a salad why?

Erbium: The fridge is glitched again. Has been for a while.


Erbium: Dad’s less than 24 hours from dying of starvation.


It wouldn’t even let me clone the fridge and sell the old one. Or move the fridge to a different part of the kitchen. I had to stick the damn thing out in the middle of the dining room.


…And then Terbium completely stopped getting experience from fishing.

Terbium: Time to pack up and move?

I’ll say.
