Well it has been a while, hasn’t it? Yeah, classes started back up in September and I’ve actually been trying to not procrastinate and to keep up with my assignments and exams as well as work so I haven’t really had time to sim. (Plus when I did have some free time I wasn’t really in the simming mood, but shhhh let’s pretend time constraints were the only reason). So I don’t really remember what’s going on, and we’ll see if I remember how to write these characters, plus I haven’t actually played yet cause these pics are all from before I just disappeared, but here we go!
Some of this was already written, sitting in my drafts for months too, so at least for part of it I actually knew what was going on!
Cress: Someone broke the tub.
Yeah, that’s a great way to start off the chapter.
Arze: God Yen, stop hogging the bathroom! I wanna go to bed!
Yen: Well then go! Jeez, your bed’s not even in here.
Arze: I want to sleep in the TUB! 😡
So all Bart really does is read… he’s kinda boring TBH.
Then I heard a bird and went to investigate and found this falcon sitting right outside the house!
So of course I sent Cress to get him, cause who wouldn’t want a falcon?
I wouldn’t. I mean, they’re cool, don’t get me wrong, but you wouldn’t want one in your house. I was scratched the tiniest bit by a little Merlin’s claws while working at a wildlife rehabilitation center, and I mean it didn’t hurt or anything cause it barely nicked it, but even that drew some blood cause they’re just so dang sharp. And that was from an itty bitty Merlin. A big falcon’s claws and beak are not something you want near you without protection 😛
… But this is Sims, so…
They can hold them on their pretty much bare arms and stick their face right near their heads and be perfectly fine.
Lady: I wanted to look at the bird! You ruined my day trip!
Cress: Maybe I could charge her to see it and get rich!
That girl literally drove up in a taxi just to look at the bird.
Cress: Griffin is my new best friend!
Yeah, I named him Griffin, after the mythical being.
Look who’s back and dancing again!
Sam: Death cannot stop my moves!
Ciri: Whooo grandpa’s back! Shake that booty gramps! 😀
Because there are so many arches connecting rooms, Griffin pretty much has free roam of the first floor. I see him flying around a lot!
Nibbles: Hissss stop dat bad moosic!
Cress: *pout* But it’s about a cat!
I don’t think Nibbles appreciates being called smelly, Cress.
Arze and Johnny seem to get along well, always playing together and hugging. I don’t remember what their relationship bar is like, but I think I’ll check next time I load up the game!
Cerys: Watch out lefty! Righty is STARVING!
Yen: Hey Bart, congrats on being such a genius and all. The rest of us are so dumb compared to you. It’s a good thing you’re here to keep us on track.
Bart: Thank you for noticing this fact, sim-Yennefer. You are the first to acknowledge this, and I will not forget your bravery in coming forward.
Yen: Wow, he bought that? I was trying to be sarcastic.
I don’t think you can pull off the sarcastic vibe, Yen. But hey, at least now if Bart decides join his alien brethren and they turn against humans, you’ll be on his good side!
So I dunno what has been going on, but every time Alex has a shower, his hair goes all blue/brown. It’s not a prank, it’s just a glitch I guess.
Alex: My hair just changes colour when it gets wet. I see nothing wrong there.
Ciri??: AGH! I don’t get it. I followed the directions exactly!
Yeah I’m honestly not too sure who that is… I’m guessing Ciri based on the hair colour, but who knows.
Griffin: Look at that concentration.
Yen seriously has such a pretty face!
I remember I was leaning towards either her or Ciri as heiress, but I haven’t decided who yet. What I do know is I’m not going to pick purely based on the elf ears anymore because I did that with Cress and was never really happy with her (sorry Cress). I would’ve totally gone with Iko instead. So I’m not going to pick like that anymore!
Cerys: THE TV IS BROKEN!!
Arze: AUGH! You couldn’t have just told me like a normal person!?
Cerys: YOU WERE ABOUT TO SIT DOWN! YOU HAD TO KNOW RIGHT AWAY!
Ok, they’ve gotta be friends! I have enough pics of them doing stuff together. Johnny, are you ever gonna wear your actual clothes?
Johnny: I am a queen, and a queen must wear her royal attire at all times.
Priscilla: Oh… hello kitty… please don’t attack me.
Alex: Yay grilled cheese! My fave!
Cerys: I want a unicorn.
Alex: Mmph what’s in this sandwich? This doesn’t taste right!
Cerys: Now where did I leave my hot dog?
Ciri: Oh plumbob. This isn’t good.
Yay. -5. Can we take a moment to appreciate her expression, though? Haha look how big her eyes are!!
You can watch, but don’t touch, Nibbles!
Yay go Bart! +5
Alex: I just fell asleep, who’s calling me?
Alex: I’m still so tired!
Priscilla: That phone is so annoying. Shut it up!
Hey, Johnny’s wearing normal clothes!! And of course she and Arze are spending time together. I love it!
Looks like Daisy Dino and Peter Plesiosaur are still fighting. (Yes I read through this generation to make sure I knew what was going on.)
Cerys is such a prankster!
Griffin: The cat is back.
Nibbles? Nibbles what are you doing?
NIBBLES! NO! BAD CAT!
Nibbles: Num num. I clean now.
Omg he killed Griffin! NIBBLES!
RIP Griffin. You weren’t with us long, but we’ll miss you.
Another honor roll! +5
Arze. Why are you showering at the pool? It’s your birthday. Get home so you can blow out the candles!
He did make it home in time, luckily!
That’s right, the last of the children are growing up into teens!!
Johnny: Ew why is he going first? I always go first!
Only because Arze was never physically able to go first. He is the older of you two.
Here he is! Now that he’s a teen, he’s realized how bratty kids are and can no longer stand them.
Johnny here doesn’t know how to act around boys and tends to make a fool of herself. (Unflirty… she’s unflirty).
Her mouth is an odd shape.
Wow what’s with the pool obsession guys?
Arze: AH! I just wanted to wash the dishes!!
Kai decided to play some tunes for the guests!
Iko, seriously, what is with you and always being scorched!?
Ciri!? It was you!? I figured it was probably Cerys!
Ciri: Hey I’m going to be an adult soon. I figured I should be rebellious at least once!
Is that a pee puddle?
I think at this point I’m just gonna have to assume it is.
Johnny: YEAH PEE!
Hey Sam! How goes it?
Sam: Oh great! Just embarrassing my alien grandson!
Bart: The ghost has seen my naked body! It is not good!
Arze: I’m Johnny, I think I’m too good for everyone else!
Johnny: Hey! You take that back!
No! Guys! Be nice, you’ve been getting along so well!
Hey it’s Bart’s turn to grow up!
Elder: This plate is growing mold O.O
Literally everyone but Iko: WHOO go Bart!!
Don’t look so enthusiastic Iko.
Iko: I have my own problems, if you couldn’t tell.
Here he is! He looks very much like an alien. He now has no sense of humor, which he has totally unofficially possessed this whole time. And his lifetime wish is to be a creature-robot cross-breeder, which also totally suits him.
K now get out. Bye Bart! I won’t really miss you, to be honest. You were kinda boring.
JJ! Haven’t seen you in forever!
So it’s your birthday, Ciri! Jamming with your sister before you move out?
Ciri: I’ve gotta fit in as much bonding as I can!
I’ll miss her when she’s gone, but I think I’m gonna have to go with Yen as heiress!
Cress: My baby is all grown up! I’m so happy but so sad at the same time!
Ciri: Oh mom, you’re so embarrassing.
Oh my God she’s so gorgeous! So elegant!
Ciri: CAKE O.O
… ok maybe not quite so elegant.
But seriously she is so pretty. UGH do I want her or Yen as heiress?? I DON’T KNOW!! But I have to decide before I start playing again, cause she’ll have to move out if she’s not heiress!
Anyway, Ciri is now unlucky, and she wants to be an astronaut.
Iko: You’re gonna want to be careful with that, Cress. Never know what might happen.
Ok, at that point I decided Iko had been singed for far too long, and that she was probably glitched. So I fixed her. That’s better. Haven’t seen her real look in so long!
Yen: Haha you think you can beat me, random old lady?
Yen: I am the master of this game. No one can beat me!
Yen, I don’t know what to do. You or Ciri as heiress???
Cerys: This lady is having a baby in our house!!
Iko: Yawn, what else is new?
Random old lady: Are you freaking kidding me!? You totally cheated!!
Yen: Hey if you can’t handle my gaming style that’s not my problem.
Iko: Ooo I’ll give this a shot. I just press all the buttons right?
So this is the result of the labor that got started during the party.
And these are Ciri’s skills! She managed to get quite a few! Especially that piano.
I don’t think I screenshotted Bart’s but if I recall correctly he didn’t really have any anyway. He mostly just read. Actually he probably had quite a few logic points from chess.
That’s it for now! I hope I managed to jump back in normally enough, without a drastic writing style change! I am planning on playing some more soon (hopefully) but first I have to decide who my heiress will be. And while I’m deciding that I’ll have assignments due and finals to write so I might not actually play much until this term is over. But at least I finally got this chapter written so there’s that!!
