A Functional Family?

Last time, we did a lot of fishing and then Lutetium refused to age up. So we had to move to try to fix that.

Most importantly, almost all of our perfect fish survived the move! We somehow lost the rainbow trout somewhere, but it shouldn’t be too hard to pick up another one.

And here’s our new house, which is less important, since we’re probably only staying here until whichever kid becomes a young adult. But it’s a nice house and I like it, even if the layout’s a little weird. The bedrooms are on the ground floor and the living areas are on the top, which I’m not used to.

It’s called Maylenderton Modern Home.

First thing we did was try to age up the toddlers.

Well, the first thing I did was change the counters because I had a headache while I was playing and ‘modern’ means ‘everything is shiny and white and painful’. But birthdays came closely in second.

Lutetium, if you do not become a child this instant I will, without hyperbole, be forced to murder you. Sorry.

Llama: Wow, the old lady living here is hot.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME LLAMA MAN.

I have never been happier to see a sim grow up with crossed eyes and an ugly wardrobe.

I present Lutetium all grown up. Her child trait is kleptomaniac.

Lutetium: You can tell because I just stole your hearts.

Ytterbium grew up afterwards. It was kind of anticlimactic because she never had an issue with the birthday part. But she rocked this hairstyle when I put it on her in CAS.

It is the absolute WORST for clipping in front of glass, and this house is 90% windows, and I have no regrets.

Ytterbium’s new trait is light sleeper.

Ytterbium: Which is okay because there aren’t any screaming toddlers in the house now.

Because Terbium and Mick know literally no one in town, except maybe the llama, I went ahead and gave them a private wedding while Ytterbium convulsed with her imaginary friend in the corner.

I didn’t take a video but the way she moves when she sings to that thing is horrifying and I think she is possessed.

Terbium: Wanna just get married now?

Mick: Terbium, we haven’t talked in… weeks… maybe we should wait?

Terbium: We’ve been engaged for like five years or something. How much longer do you want to wait.

Mick: Shouldn’t we settle into the new house…

Terbium: Mick we have a pool in the backyard and I know how to kill people with it.

Mick: … let’s get married now.

Romance.

If you couldn’t tell from any of the previous pictures, we’re back in Sunset Valley. In the same lot where Ellie moved in… was it six years ago now? I thought it would be nice to kind of get back to where we started.

But with a swanky house instead of a tent, of course.

Also we have a pond across from the house now and it’s really convenient and I love it.

Rainbow trout! One fish to go!

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-25-34-pm

Ytterbium found the pool and…

Shoot! I knew I forgot something! We left all the graves back at the old house.

… I’m not too upset, though. We have, like, half a generation left before we get a new start and trying to get our first graves transferred over to to the ISBI file was awful and horrible. So those ghosts weren’t going to be sticking around with the family for much longer anyway.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-25-57-pm

Lutetium: I IMMEDIATELY REGRET THIS DECISION.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-26-38-pm

I don’t want our last fish to be a minnow or something shitty like that, so we’re going for either a death fish or a shark. It might make things a bit harder but we have a while before I have to give up controlling Terbium.

One, we have a computer in the house and I don’t think we had one in the last one.

Two, Erbium ‘s arms are very toned and nice.

And Thulium is… here. In a bathroom.

Thulium: This is the new legacy house. Riley and me are seceding and starting our own legacy. A legacy where people HAVE to pay attention to me.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-28-26-pm

Thulium: Isn’t that right, Riley? We’re gonna get married and have ALL the babies.

Ooooookay then.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-29-04-pm

Abraham Probably: OMIGOD!! Are you Terbium Mendeleev? I’m a big fan of your family!

Terbium: I know, we’re the best legacy family.

TERBIUM YOU CAN’T SAY THAT.

Terbium: We’re way better than–

LET’S SEE WHAT THE OTHERS ARE DOING.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-31-58-pm

We have… children who went to bed at reasonable hours? And are getting up for school with good motives? No one’s screaming? What family is this?

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-35-58-pm

Terbium’s perfect shark comes sooner than expected.

Like, the first one she catches.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-37-17-pm

I had Terbium put the shark in the bowl herself to give it some extra pomp and circumstance.

Terbium: It tiny.

As much as is possible with this family.

Terbium: … now I never want to see a fish again. Screw fish. Screw the ocean. Screw this LTW.

Agreed.

CHILDREN DOING HOMEWORK WHAT IS THIS.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-38-53-pm

Oh, okay. We’re back on some familiar ground. Thulium not coming home after school for some reason. Good, normal things that happen in my game.

Thulium: I realized we can’t start our legacy with a house, so this is our home until I can afford to make some walls.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-41-26-pm

Terbium, don’t you want to spend some time with your kids now?

Terbium: I… um. Don’t know how to do that. Pls help.

I sent her to go play tag but it was too dark so you get no pictures.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-42-22-pm

Even Thulium is doing her homework now???

Thulium: I need good grades so I can get a nice job and provide for my family.

I mean, if you DO get picked as heiress your life’s work would be gardening. Not anything that requires a resumé…

Thulim: GOD I mean my OWN, NEW family! It’s like you don’t even LISTEN!

o_o

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-46-48-pm

Lutetium: What a nice sleep I had. I’m so well-rested now. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Ready to take on the day…

Lutetium I saw you go to bed two hours ago. You’re not fooling anyone.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-47-42-pm

I was going to ask why this paparazzi was in front of our house in a swimsuit when she can in no way reach the pool from outside the gate, but…

She’s not even paparazzi?

WHY ARE YOU HERE.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-48-17-pm

Her: Yeah, I was waiting here ALL NIGHT and they wouldn’t let me into their pool. ;_;

Papergirl: … can I just get on with putting down the newspaper so I can eventually complete the newspaper circle and summon the journalism demon that will consume us all?

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-49-12-pm

AHH SO BRIGHT

We got the shark immortalized by mounting it. I kind of want to make it a family heirloom for the final stretch of the legacy. A shark the gets hung over the heir’s bed.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-49-39-pm

It’s still named Frederick. Perfect.

Oh, the kids brought a friend home.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-51-37-pm

Malcolm: I’m a spoiled rich brat and I approve of this legacy house!

Thanks. We try to be filthy rich bourgeoisie.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-51-52-pm

WOMP.

Maybe next time don’t go to sleep at 4 AM??

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-10-52-38-pm

It’s Thulium’s birthday! I gave her a cake because I felt bad about the whole… being ignored constantly thing.

Thulium: You could have at least given it to me this morning so I wouldn’t have to go to school.

You could at least be grateful you got a cake???

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-11-03-55-pm

She’s. A CUTIE???

She looks way better in CAS but still why is she so gorgeous?????

Also a bookworm.

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-11-04-59-pm

Cuuuuuuuuuuuute.

Thulium: You can’t start paying attention to me now that I’m hot. : /

First of all, I can and I will. Second, I’ve been paying attention to you, like, all chapter. So hush.
