Hello everyone! I’m back with another update that shouldn’t be ready yet because I should have used this time to study but who needs school when you have the sims am I right?
Anyway, last time Ciri grew up and I was having trouble deciding whether I wanted her or Yen to be heiress. Did I figure it out? I must have or this chapter wouldn’t be here. So read on to find out who will be carrying on the insanity!
Also I changed the colour of text when a sim is the one doing the talking to make it easy to tell at a glance whether it’s me or a sim. I hope it worked out decently!
Ciri: Wheee! The sky is so pretty from up here!
It’s pretty from down here too, wow. I don’t think I even realized while in-game but it’s looking really nice! Also yes, Christmas lights are still up even though it’s midsummer. Also yes, Ciri hasn’t moved out, because I was still deciding who I wanted as heiress. 😛
Whatcha makin’ there, Cress?
Cress: Can’t talk. Must… Concentrate…
I basically wiped out our funds to make this potion… and then realized she already had one in her inventory. So I basically wasted a bunch of money. Yay.
Arze: So dad, what’s it like being a police officer?
Alex: Well, there’s a lot of time in court.
Arze: But like, do you ever get to arrest people?
Alex: Oh yeah, all the time!
And that is like the one and only positive interaction with another sim you’ll be seeing from Arze. From here on out he basically just yells at everybody.
I was wondering why no one was going to school or work when suddenly they all changed to go to Ciri’s graduation and I was like: oh, that’s why.
And then I got a notice saying Nibbles was going to be taken away if we didn’t give him attention so I had Cress take care of him instead of attending the graduation.
She still made it though! All on her own, too.
Haha ok. I mean, I don’t think that really sounds like her, but whatever.
Ciri: Sweet, I’m officially done with high school! I can move out now.
Ciri: Nibbles, come on! Time to go.
Nibbles: NO. I don wanna go!
Ciri: Stop fooling around Nibbles.
… That is an unfortunate placement of the tail … 😉
Ciri: Whatever I’m leaving.
Nibbles: Fine I’m coming.
Yeah, I decided not to make Ciri heiress. And she took Nibbles cause he was technically her cat so yeah!
Right away she got settled in her career of choice!
Cinder: What are you doing in my house!?
Cress: What the hell? You invited me here!
Cress: Talk to the hand, cause the face doesn’t want to.
Cress: Guess what, sis? I discovered how to make every potion ever the other day!
Iko: Yeah… I really don’t care.
Ok, that party was a dud. Literally it was just Cinder and Iko. And they didn’t even want to listen to what Cress had to say.
Aww. Cress had a wish to amorously hug Alex and I figured: they’ve had like zero contact ever since Arze and Johnny were conceived so might as well.
Alex: What’s your deal Cress!? We’ve had no physical contact in YEARS and you think you can just start up again out of the blue?
Cress: But you accepted the hug!
Haha look at Cress’ fingers. That amused me more than it probably should’ve.
Alex: Haha just kidding, let’s hug again!
Cress: Seriously? After you just yelled at me? No way.
Alex: Um what are you doing?
Cress: How about a kiss instead? *puckers up*
Alex: Eh heh. No thanks.
Well that was a roller coaster of a train wreck. So much for getting the romance back. That was completely autonomous too. Even Cress. … And now their relationship is like maybe a third of the bar? A little less? And it was totally full before XD
Arze: Wah wah wah Cerys is a baby. Cerys wears mismatched eyeshadow and blue lipstick.
Cerys: Excuse you ridiculously-long-named blue-haired pointy-eared freak! My makeup is awesome!
Priscilla got a call from… someone, guess I didn’t write his name down… asking her on a date!
… At the junkyard? Really?
Hey Ciri’s got a romantic interest!
Priscilla: Hey, maybe I can find something good in here!
Priscilla: Yay a puddle! 😀
Date: I’m gonna go see if there’s anything good in the dumpster.
Priscilla: Best date EVAR!
I’m pretty sure Yen and Cerys are friends. I thought I wrote it down but guess I didn’t, but I think I remember them being friends.
Arze: I really have to pee, but this game is too intense!
He made it in the end, no worries!
I swear, Yen can usually be found playing video games, or watching someone else playing video games. She’s obsessed.
And Arze is just always picking fights with EVERYONE.
Woot woot! Finally, all that potion-making paid off!
Hey it’s Fae! How’s it hangi –
Laundry bear? Why are you in the crypt? And being so creepy?
Laundry Bear: Alex is next.
Um, yeah, I’m just gonna … leave … now ….
Yen: I fell 😦
I’m having Cress paint now that her LTW is complete. We need money XD
And Bart has done nothing with his life. Literally this is one of I think two notifications I’ve received about him? I think he’s trying to stay separate from humanity as much as possible.
Woah woah hold on a sec. Alex walked THROUGH the crowd entranced by the bass to go to the BATHROOM to pee BEFORE desperately needing to go, all WITHOUT STOPPING ONCE to watch the bass. What is this sorcery?
Then, later, both Johnny and Arze were able to break away to pee/shower respectively while still in the green.
Yay Cinder’s having a baby!!
Yen: Whoever loses has to do the dishes!
Yen: Sweet! Video games for me then!
Arze was sound asleep, but then.
Priscilla: My powers are back!
Oh yeah, and darts. Yen also loves darts. Actually, I think she does the most out of all the kids.
Johnny: SO TIRED!
Well then don’t play shuffleboard all night long!!
And now you’re going to bed when you should be going to school. Nice. This is why you’re getting a D.
… And now an F. And then Cress wished to see Johnny get passing grades, and then to get an A. HAHAHA ok there Cress.
Well EXCUSE YOU Bart. You have a party and don’t even invite your family? Well maybe I won’t invite you to our next party. How would you like that?
So he’s been there one sim-year and is still only at level 4 in his career XD
So today was a busy day for the kids. Arze brought home this chick, Mary Ball, although she left right away.
And Yen went over to Pansy Coddle-Prudence’s, who also left right away saying Yen should too. Ok guys.
Aw a watermelon bunny! … Is it eating its own ear?
Cinder!! You’re pregnant with a husband!
Johnny: Um, how am I supposed to do this? Was this even covered in class?
Priscilla: Yeah it was, you’re just never there.
… There’s a reason I stopped sending uncontrollable sims to parties. -5
Cress got an opportunity to paint something for this lady, Renee William-Brown.
Renee: Did we have to do this outside?
Also, we randomly got like $9k for no apparent reason a bit before this. I have no idea why.
Cress autonomously went to swim at the pool since she was right there, and I let her. I figured she could use the break from non-stop painting.
And then Renee died right after getting her painting.
Cinder/Ciri: Yay party!!
Cerys: It’s my birthday! 😀
Driver: Where the teens at?
Yeah I forgot it was prom night and I scheduled Cerys’ party for that afternoon. Heh heh. Oh well. Johnny did end up going though. She just ran past at one point and I was like “who’s that running away from the party?” before realizing it was, in fact, a member of the family. Sorry Johnny. I don’t always remember you. She did get prom queen though, so she has that going for her.
What’s with the sudden pool obsession?
Cerys: Caaake! O.O
Look who grew up adorable! Like I dunno if it was just the hair or the makeup or something as a teen that prevented me from seeing it, but she’s so cute!
Also she had Schmoozer locked in, which makes her a childish, inappropriate schmoozer who loves dogs but hates going outside. And she rolled the LTW of International Super Spy.
And I kinda love her. Like I spent a good chunk of time with her in CAS and even downloaded some stuff I thought would suit her XD
She’ll be sticking around for now. Potential surprise heiress!? I’m not controlling her, but I did get her a job!
Why so glum guys?
Ah. Just listening to the tunes. Thorne… you grew up with that hair… Have I mentioned how much I despise that hair?
And where was Arze during all this? Talking to a pregnant Norma Liv-Racket out who-knows-where.
Again? He just never came home from work and has instead been standing in front of the police force all evening. -5
And Arze is just… chilling on the slide.
Arze: Damn. Busted.
Also I downloaded new plates! Excuse the fumes. They’re everywhere.
Really Alex? Again? Go home!
Ok but look at how ADORABLE Cerys’ pjs are!!!
Ok what the hell are you wearing now?
Cerys: I picked it out all by myself! It’s my first day at work!
Ok this is ridiculous. He literally stood in front of his work ALL FREAKING NIGHT. -5
Alex: Oh hey honey! I’m off to work!
Cerys: Um, it’s the other way dad.
Alex: Heh, sleep deprivation. What can I say?
Aw Kai broke up with his girlfriend.
Well, a nap is better than passing out.
And Cinder gives birth to a piece of cheese! Jk Brie is a cute name.
Yen: Ew these hot dogs stink.
Yeah, the fumes didn’t give it away?
Yen: Ugh these hot dogs taste disgusting!
Gee I wonder why.
Yen: Someone broke the tub.
Yen: *vomits up hot dogs*
Wow Yen. You are not making a very good future-heiress impression with all this.
Oh also I forgot, but here’s Cerys’ skills. Two measly cooking points.
Cerys: OMG a ghost! D:
Arze: Hahaha good one great-grandma! BOO!
Cerys: OMG why!?
Fae: I hear buzzing 😡
Fae: Where are you ya nasty?
Fae: *noms* Try and annoy me now!
She kept moving throughout this sequence.
Alex: Don’t talk back to me idiot son of mine!
Haha so Arze randomly went up to Alex to yell at him (as he does to everyone… all the time) and Alex’s response was to slap the heck out of him. I missed it cause I was on triple speed, but I still got the stars!
Arze: And then he just slapped me, like can you believe that guy!?
Yen: Dude he’s right behind you.
Yen: But yeah, what a baby. I hate babies.
So I was wondering (again) why everyone was at home in the middle of the day before realizing it was leisure day.
And everyone just decided to go hang out by/in the pool.
Also, I totally missed it, but Yen did this freaking AWESOME like triple flip off the diving board. So I kept an eye on her to see if she’d do it again, and then she went back on the diving board.
And completely failed. Nice.
Yen: No one saw that, did they?
Since (almost) everyone was out at the pool, I let Cress go down for some fun too. Priscilla went back in after like a split second outside.
Wow nice dive, Cress.
Cress: Hey Johnny. How’s it going?
Johnny: Omg mom stop being weird.
K but seriously though. Look at Cress’ hips. Wow. Those are some child-birthing hips right there. No wonder she had so many kids.
*SQUEAL* Ciri is having a baby!!! 😀
Arze: I fell 😦
Why are you being a loner Priscilla? Go have fun outside!
Priscilla: I was outside. Now I’m inside. Where I prefer to be.
Cerys was also absent from the activity, but that’s cause she was just so darn tired.
Yen: Help I’m drowning!
Well you’ve been swimming literally all day.
Then suddenly: a birthday! Facing the wall. Thanks Alex, getting pictures will be fun.
Alex: Ow my back!
Alex: Being old sucks 😦
Alex: Make me a sandwich!
Cress: Make your own sandwich, old man!
… I feel like their relationship is just gonna go downhill once I stop controlling Cress.
Also Alex wanted a cane, and I could totally see him using one, so I got him one XD
Graduation time! Nice hat Cerys.
Cerys: Thanks! I picked it out myself!
Cool but aren’t you kinda supposed to wear the graduation cap?
I mean, she is inappropriate… and childish. So she could totally offend someone without actually meaning to.
Cerys: I’m an ADULT!
I just can’t imagine her as anything but this super child-like person. She’s too adorable.
Hey Brie got the blue hair!
I was confused for a sec as to why Ciri was still pregnant before remembering that Brie is, in fact, Cinder’s child.
Also I took pity on everyone and changed their hairs back to normal. They were bugging me. Especially Thorne’s.
Kai: Why do you only ever take pictures of my back?
… Good question.
Um, Ciri, that’s not your boyfriend.
But all these people can only mean one thing: it’s a birthday! This will be the moment of truth! Will the heiress be Yen or Cerys??
Yen: Yay I’m getting older!!
Shark: YEAH! WHOO! YOU GO GIRLS!!
Dude, you weren’t even invited and you’re more excited than everyone else.
And Yen rolled … Born Saleswoman … Which makes her an absent-minded loner who loves the heat and making sales, and will sleep through anything. My God that’s a boring set of traits.
Kai: What!? My face can be seen!? Does anyone even remember this is what I look like?
Cerys: Hahaha Yen got the most useless trait ever! Hahaha!
Yeah, so here she is. Also she wants to be a World-Renowned Surgeon, and she finished with one cooking point and two logic points.
… Yeah. She’s not gonna be heiress. I was hoping her last trait might redeem her a little, but it just made it worse. Sorry Yen, you’re beautiful! But I think Cerys would be more fun to play as well as being adorable, no offense.
Yen: How is that not offensive?
Oh my God so many people. A bunch of randoms just showed up too who weren’t even invited.
Yen: Don’t mind me, just eating away my sorrows.
Also there’s Priscilla. Yeah, I just kept her pretty much the same. Except the hair. She had Equestrian locked in, which means she’s now a childish couch potato who loves horses, music, and sculpting. And she rolled Rock Star as her LTW, but I ended up choosing One Sim Band instead, cause I thought that suited her more.
Yen: I have more sorrows to eat away. Move guys.
Oh hey, Yen. You look like you gained some weight between the last pic and this one. How much cake have you had?
Yen: Um, just one… two… uh…
Yen: You know, I don’t really remember? I had a lot of sorrows, ok?
Yen: The cake must have liquefied!
… Really Yen? That’s your parting gift? -5
Meanwhile, Iko made her way down to the crypt to mourn her father. I know Iko, I miss Sam too 😦
Aw Cinder misses him too! Or JJ, whoever she’s mourning.
… I’d like to point out that this is kind of amusing, because those aren’t technically their urns. Remember how I had to remake the family and cheat them their fancy urns? The real urns are on the floor in the opposite corner so really these guys are mourning empty urns. But we can look past that 😛
Ok what is this a party?
Anywhoozle, Cerys here is officially the new heiress! Who saw that coming huh?
Kai: Oh look. It’s my back again.
Cerys: And this little piggy said- wait what? I’m taking over?
Cerys: Are you sure I’m ready?
Aw you’ll do fine Cerys! Nothing to it!
Yay another generation complete! I’m proud of myself: this is the farthest I’ve ever gotten in a legacy and I’m still invested in the family. I think I just like watching sims get up to crazy things on their own XD

— So I don’t know if failing is actually part of the points system, but as the opposite of honour roll I feel like it probably should be. So I’m adding it. Because if my sims suck enough to fail school (*coughJohnnycough*) they deserve to lose points. Even though it’s me that’s losing them. But whatever.
