5.2 Trouble in Paradise

Another chapter so soon?! (You ask in distress.) I’m sorry. I should probably leave a courtesy buffer or something but sometimes the words just keep flowing, y’know?

Last time, Gumby fell in love with Frieda Salas, an evil ghost who wants to kill him and steal his money. Lira had tea with her SimBots and lamented the curse of aging. Mandrake broke my game, and Boa tried in vain to die by jelly bean. I know now that that can’t happen, but for the sake of continuity and my pride I’m going to pretend I am none the wiser.

(Pretend not to be wise? How ever shall I do that?)

Screenshot-1279

Gumby’s second date with Frieda was a raging and unreasonable success. I know the shot I gave you last chapter was a little stingy, so here’s a better look at her face.

Frieda: So hypothetically, what colour would you want your ghost to be?

Gumby: I don’t know. Why?

Frieda: Oh, no reason.

For anyone wondering, this is her real, EA-given colouring. All of the Midnight Hollow ghosts seem to look like this underneath, i.e. so white they must have been genetically engineered by Hitler himself.

Screenshot-1280

Frieda: These flowers were also engineered by Hitler.

Gumby: Wow! They look just like the ones I gave you last chapter!

Frieda: Yeah how about that.

Screenshot-1282

Gumby: I’m gonna post this on Facebook!

Frieda: Yeah, just a heads up, I don’t show up in pictures.

Screenshot-1284

Frieda: Actually, if you could refrain from posting about our relationship online, that would be great. In fact, just don’t tell any of your friends about us.

Screenshot-1287

Gumby: But Frieda, I love you!

Frieda: You idiot, there are people watching!

Skydancer: Oh my god Gumby, stop forcing yourself on that girl! You’re being so creepy!

Screenshot-1290

Frieda: So now that we’re alone, should we make this official?

Gumby: Really?

Screenshot-1292

Gumby: ‘Cause if we’re gonna go that far, I was thinking we should get married!

Frieda: Jeez Gumby, stop joking around! Hahahahahaha!

Screenshot-1293

Frieda: *grits teeth* Not in front of the camera.

And that was when the game decided that Gumby having a girlfriend was just too unrealistic…

error code 12...

…so unrealistic that it corrupted the save and essentially broke the legacy.

Fact: This happened on Spooky Day, right before a visit from the Repoman was supposed to occur. You thought “Spooky Day” meant Hallowe’en? I have now realized that it is definitely Friday the 13th.

But have no fear! I was able to restore a recent backup and—before anything else could go wrong—whisk the family out of Midnight Hollow, all the way to…

Screenshot-2

…Isla Paradiso! ALL HAIL THE SUN GODS!

The bad news is they’re a little out of place. When the fuck did Axorn turn green?

Screenshot-3

Hey kids, it may have been okay in Creepytown, but I don’t think your weird interspecies closeness is gonna fly here.

Pokey: You’re such a pain in the ass.

Screenshot-4

In other bad news, I lost a whack of CC somewhere in the midst of deleting cache files. Can you guess the two things wrong with this picture? Hint: the bad camera angle isn’t one of them.

Screenshot-5

I did, of course, venture bravely into the unstable save to rescue some blood relatives. Recognize these fools? I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t; Story Progression sort of ate them. They’ve been floating around in some weird limbo — homeless, childless, and stuck in a professional rut. I think they even stopped aging. The only way I could track them down was by searching with MasterController. I guess that explains why LeffJeff have no kids, and why Florin and Drachma are still single.

Drachma: Yeah, that’s why Florin is single.

I also packed up a handful of cousins who go back to Gen. 3 — the Langurd-Lins (Tomahawk’s descendants) and the Langurd-Crosbys (Lance’s).

Screenshot-11

I also had to do the traditional “look at the mess we’re leaving behind” picture, although the point is moot this time since we took the mess with us.

Screenshot-12

I couldn’t bring myself to part with the dollhouse yet. It’s functional and pretty and it took me a bloody year to build.

Screenshot-19

That said, it needed some minor renovations to fit in with the new generation’s aesthetic. (Somewhere, a handyman is cursing me for calling a complete exterior paint job a “minor renovation.”)

FUCK, I MISSED A SPOT ON THE SIDE. D:

Screenshot-21

With Boa hopefully on the verge of death, I made plans to bulldoze the forest hut and move Manny into the main house.

Screenshot-22

I added some illogical windows to the attic bedroom, stole the furniture and patterns from Boa’s living room, and made Mandrake a woodsy loft.

Screenshot-23

The twins’ old room will be Skydancer’s, as if you couldn’t tell from the excess of leafy things and fairy lanterns.

Screenshot-24

I’m kind of obsessed with using ivy for indoor decor now. Don’t tell my landlord I said that.

Screenshot-27

Gumby and Frieda got Katana and Weston’s old room. Gumby likes violet and Frieda likes seafoam, and they both have black souls. Toss in some “Victorian Ghost” and some “Alien Chic,” and this is what you get.

Screenshot-28

Where once we kept Katana’s hard-earned treasures, now we have Gumby’s marks of third-place shame. Just kidding — one of them is actually Rotter’s.

Screenshot-30

I was going for a “Queen of the Underworld” vibe over in this corner.

Screenshot-35

The solid gold bathroom didn’t need much adapting for an evil gold digger.

Screenshot-49

Oh yeah, the other catch about the move? Gumby and Frieda are back to “Good Friend” status.

Frieda: You’re such a good friend.

Llama: Back on the market, eh?

Don’t even think about it, Underbite.

Screenshot-6

It might help if Gumby had more support from his family.

Skydancer: Ew, a ghost.

Buzz: Skydancer! Haven’t I taught you to be more tolerant of diversity?

Frieda: Yeah, I mean doesn’t your brother do it with horses?

Screenshot-37

Gumby: Hell yeah I do! Wait, what do I do with horses?

Axorn: Sigh…

Screenshot-38

On that note, a little equine bonding time for the new power couple. Frieda and Axorn are getting along just fine, but—

Pokey: A new horse and now a new woman?? This is the last straw, pal!

Gumby: *sob* I’m sorry!

Screenshot-42

Gumby: You’ll always be my special lady.

Pokey: Maybe don’t go around advertising that.

Screenshot-45

Jealousy aside, Pokey’s gotta like having a magical companion around.

Pokey: Boy, I feel like sunshine and rainbows!

Axorn: YOU’RE WELCOME BRO.

Screenshot-15

So one fine day, I had Skydancer click on herself and saw an option to “burn something nearby.”

sky is pyromaniac and burglar

I checked her hidden traits and what do you know, our clean-cut little cookie is a PYROMANIAC AND A BURGLAR. I knew she was too good to be true!

I wanted to blame it on Buzz, since he’s the only difference between Sky and Gumby. However, he is neither of those things. Lira is a burglar, as is Mandrake, but Gumby is not. For that part at least, I’m temporarily tracing it back to Dax.

Screenshot-14

Okay, now that we’ve spend the first third of the chapter dilly-dallying, let’s get down to business.

Boa: Don’t worry, Malissa! I’ll try really hard to die today!

Mandrake: Wait, what?

Screenshot-44

Er, yeah, it’s probably best if you don’t witness that, so let’s get you far away.

Mandrake: I’ll keep working on my life’s ambition, guitar!

You want to be an acrobat.

Mandrake: Oh, right.

Screenshot-47

That’s more like it. But not really, because you look like a mutated zucchini.

Screenshot-50

Balboa’s luck with the beans was about as bad as it could be without being, you know, THAT kind of bad.

Boa: PUT IT OUT PUT IT OUT! I DON’T WANT TO DIE TODAY!!!!

Buzz: I’m so confused.

Screenshot-52

Boa: This is hopeless. I’m never going to find a bad jelly bean.

BOA YOU’RE STILL ON FIRE, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU—

Screenshot-53

Shit.

Screenshot-56

Grim: YOU! What did I tell you the last time I saw you?

Boa: Drugs are bad?

Screenshot-57

Grim: YA THINK? What kind of idiot watches his wife die from an overdose and then gets back on the bottle?

Boa: That’s a mixed metapho—

Grim: Shut the fuck up!

Buzz: *steps in ashes*

Gumby: *stares at wall*

Screenshot-58

Grim: Well I can see your family is positively heartbroken, so I’d better not take you just yet.

Boa: Dude, you’re the best!

boa spared by death

Screenshot-61

Gumby: Aww man, I was really hoping for a cool death scene!

Screenshot-63

Grim: I’m sorry, feel free to take my job if you think you could do it better.

Gumby: Wow, really? I’d love to!

Grim: Oh, fuck, I wasn’t expecting— Okay, tell you what. You beat me in a duel and you got the gig.

Gumby: Okay!

Screenshot-67

Gumby: Take that!

Grim: This is definitely the sort of duel I had in mind.

Screenshot-73

Oh, yeah, great idea. Let’s scare the guy literally just came back from death’s doorstep.

Frieda: I know, right?

Screenshot-74

Frieda: *sound of thunder*

Boa: Welp, my heart is officially no longer beating.

Too bad you can’t die of that, eh? 😉

Screenshot-77

Frieda: So where did you leave things with the Grim Reaper?

Gumby: Uh, we traded Pokémon cards.

Frieda: ‘Cause I gotta say, if you’re Death now, that makes you a whole lot sexier.

Gumby: Well I’m probably at least a henchman at this point.

Screenshot-76

Frieda: Kiss me, you little psychopath.

Gumby: O-okay!

Screenshot-78

Dear lord, did their relationship just get actual substance? I’m not sure I can handle this.

Screenshot-75

I had no idea that “Dance” was a Fairy-listed interaction, and now I am way too happy that I named her Skydancer.

Skydancer: Burnin’ down the house!

On second thought, I probably should have called her Satan. D:

Please ignore the irony of the dead life fruits in the background. Seriously, the Langurds got a unicorn confiscated… How do you expect they are with plants?

Screenshot-83

Frieda: Please make me Queen of the Underworld?

Gumby: Only if I can be Princess!

Frieda: No, you’d be King.

Gumby: That’s cool too!

Am I trying really hard to be unconventional? Maybe. Or maybe I was just scared she’d reject him again. 😛

Screenshot-89

Boa: Where are the young’uns off to now?

None of your business, and stop it with the damned coffee! You have a BED, you know!

Screenshot-96

Er, on second thought…

Frieda: He can come and join us, I wouldn’t mind!

That’s because you have a biological attraction to hefty bank accounts and creaking joints.

Screenshot-99

Gumby: Are you picturing me as an old man?

Frieda: Maybe.

Screenshot-94

Zombie: Ah, true love under the moonlight!

This picture would be uber creepy if it weren’t for the pretty lighting. Or maybe it would be pretty if not for the creepiness? (Story of this legacy’s life, I reckon.)

Screenshot-91

Look who’s popular!

Crowd: THE LAAAAAAST HAMBURGER.

Or not.

Screenshot-100

Okay Lira, I do appreciate your aimless standing, but you’re old now and time’s a-wasting.

Screenshot-101

Lira: There, I got a fish.

Much better.

Screenshot-103

Frieda: Ew, a ghost!

Chris: Looked in a mirror lately?

Frieda: No, Bloody Mary and I aren’t on speaking terms these days.

Screenshot-105

Lira: Aww yeah, Gumby Langurd won bronze riding Gumby Langurd!

Seriously EA, how hard was it not to screw this up?

Screenshot-106

A day in the late life of Balboa Langurd:

Spontaneous combustion.

Screenshot-107

Electrocution.

Screenshot-108

Top it off with a cereal dinner in front of the ashes of your former self, and you’re golden…

…LITERALLY golden. XD

Boa: You should be ashamed of yourself.

Screenshot-110

Ironic how the most productive generation of this family has regressed into pointlessness and senility.

Lira: Now where did I put my dentures?

leffjeffkidfinally

Their sister, on the other hand, is hitting her second wind. We have a LeffJeff baby at last!

florin no pension

I dunno though, Florin might have her beat.

echo and florin lol

Haha

Hahahaha

Hahahahahahaha

…I am so sorry, Susan.

But don’t worry — yours is far from the most unfortunate story in the relationship headlines.

nina and coolio are 1st cousins once removed

Remember when Balboa cloned Florin? That’s Coolio… and Nina is Lance’s granddaughter… so genetically, they’re first cousins once removed. I knew this moment was coming but still, blegh.

Screenshot-112

So ghosts are pretty fun, but there’s a catch. They take FOREVER to get anywhere. Add that to Gumby’s stupid sneaking and we’ve got ourselves a slow-mo generation. I should get double points for anything these idiots manage to accomplish.

Screenshot-118

But I mean, with an LTW like Gold Digger, there’s not much for her to work toward anyway. She has a low-rung job in science that I let her keep, but other than that, she’s basically waiting around for Gumby to die. Figured she should make herself useful and test-drive “The Claaaaw,” which I bought as a kind of monument for Lira’s generation.

Frieda: Don’t disappoint me, O Glorious One!

Screenshot-120

Frieda: This machine is sentient! It knows my deepest wishes and dreams!

Her first cash bag contained $3,360. Her second contained $7,207. My eyes are dollar signs.

Screenshot-113

Gumby: Alright, buddy old pal, you ready to make ‘em look?

Axorn: LET’S FUCK SOME SHIT UP

Screenshot-114

They certainly fucked up all kinds of shit, placing 3rd in their first International Jumping Competition. Unicorns come with maxed Jumping and Racing skills, so it’s only a little impressive. They would have done better if they were better friends with each other, but that would make Pokey very sad.

Screenshot-122

Manny auditioned at Mick’s Master Karaoke, but they told him he wasn’t good enough. So he took his talents elsewhere… i.e. just outside the door.

Mandrake: If I must die, let it be by my own sword and not my enemy’s!

Screenshot-123

Mandrake: Lest I dishonour the sacred Samurai code… Goodbye, cruel world!

Screenshot-125

Mandrake: Jazz hands!

It’s a wonder they wouldn’t let him perform inside.

Screenshot-126

I guess Frieda does have a rather important task on her hands — or should I say in her womb. Generation Six is on its way!

I can’t CAS her mat wear without turning her human and risking major screw-ups, but damn, look how well she coordinated it without my help!

Frieda: I am this legacy’s saviour.

Just you wait, lady. Just you wait.

Screenshot-128

The Jelly Bean Saga continues.

Boa: Mom, get off the stairs! I need to get to the shower!

Screenshot-129

Boa: Mom seriously!

Screenshot-130

Boa: MOM SERIOUSLY!!!!

I fucking love you, Katana.

Screenshot-131

Gumby tried this cool “Mind Control” thing on his dead grandfather, but I still can’t figure out how it works. As far as I know, the victim gets all googly-eyed for a few seconds and then goes back to life as usual.

Gumby: You are getting veeeeery sleepy…

Dax: MUFASA IS THAT YOU?!

Actually, I think I solved the mystery. You can’t control a mind when your subject doesn’t have one.

Screenshot-133

I take back what I said about coordinated maternity clothes.

Frieda: What? I’m going for “just trekked five kilometres in a dust storm.”

In that case, well done.

Screenshot-136

Pokey has a little something she’s been wanting to do since 4.18. Take it away, girl.

Pokey: This is for bringing home that ruddy unicorn!

Boa: Aww man, but I was just following orders—

Screenshot-137

Pokey: I’ve been at the mercy of men just following orders.

Boa: Pokey plz

Screenshot-138

Pokey: Never again.

Screenshot-149

Poor Boa. After all he’s been through, he really should be dead. Fire. Electricity. Heart attacks. Horse’s hooves. ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. Sims are resilient little buggers.

Boa: Dude, I just want my tofu dogs cooked to perfection.

Screenshot-148

Gumby: So, sis, what’s new? Any cute boys at school?

Skydancer: Oh, sweet Gumby. I’m going to teach you proper smalltalk one of these days.

dontelikesskyhmm

As a matter of fact, there is a boy. I guess I forgot to mention the other household who tagged along from Midnight Hollow — the Winterwolf-Sung clan, consisting of my elderly simself, her aging hottie of a husband Young Jae Sung, and their son Donte. I’m sure that’s a variation/misspelling of “Dante,” but in my head I keep calling him “Don’t.”

I plucked out his mother to avoid duplicates when I dropped a younger Sim Me in town. Which reminds me, I forgot to fix their family tree, and with my luck he’ll end up dating her. But perhaps not, since he heartfarted Sky at school. Goshdarnit Don’t, stop flirting in math class.

Screenshot-144

Hey hey, I haven’t seen the Beast in a while! Not that I approve of a pregnant sim riding it, but it’s for a good cause. A couple of visits to the spa, and this baby ought to come out a genius and a supermodel.

Frieda: Of course, it’s for the baby.

Screenshot-151

Uh, is THAT for the baby? Now it’s going to come out an idiot and an alien! D:

Screenshot-152

Alien: I resent that!

Sorry. I guess our chances aren’t looking good anyway, since the father is both of those things.

Alien: Yes. And on that note, where is the son of Teqeq To’Vedachot? His father’s throne sits empty.

Oh, um… he died. (HIDE, GUMBY, HIDE!)

Screenshot-153

Alien: That is a shame. We may be forced to become a democracy.

I’m so sorry, I really am.

(GOOD HIDING!)

Screenshot-156

Autonomy is the #1 destroyer of friendships.

Mandrake: You’re dumb!

Gumby: Not that I’m not loving this, but… what?

Screenshot-158

Mandrake: You’re dumb!

Gumby: Let me get this straight. You, the Absent-Minded talking mime who wears vegetables as clothes, are calling ME dumb?

Mandrake: Yes!

Screenshot-159

Gumby: I’m afraid you’re right on the money there.

Mandrake: It’s okay, man. We’re in this together.

Screenshot-162

Frieda’s just about ready to pop, and Gumby has yet to even talk to her about the pregnancy.

Gumby: Are you feeling okay? That belt looks pretty tight.

Frieda: It’s to keep the baby from getting too big. I’d rather not push a ten-pounder out my lady parts, you know.

Gumby: I hope our baby is as smart as you!

Screenshot-163

Gumby: Here, let me give you a massage.

Frieda: That’s okay, I already got six of those.

Screenshot-167

I thought it would be fun if Skydancer had some real, live plants in her bedroom, being a fairy and all. It was pretty fun until she didn’t water them and they all nearly died. Enter Frieda, our resident “has nothing better to do.”

Screenshot-170

Sky: What are you doing?! You’re screwing up my carefully calculated watering regime!

Frieda: Really? Is that the “don’t water them” regime? ‘Cause I think I saw that on TV.

Screenshot-175

Frieda: Ooooh, what if I were to have my baby right in the middle of her garden?

Whatever floats your—

Screenshot-177

Frieda: Dammit, I was joking! I think my water just broke!

Mmm no, but sure, let’s go with that.

Screenshot-179

Dead plants, pee puddles, and electricity? That’s got to be some kind of omen…

Screenshot-180

Frieda: Hey, you do look like an Omen!

Thus, Omen Langurd was born, a Lightly-Sleeping Genius who likes green, Egyptian music, and Dim Sum.

Great job on the favourite colour, kid. Prepare to commit major fashion crimes.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

So we made it to Generation Six at last! I love how naive I was a year ago when I promised to reach this point within a few months. My word is worth very little, it seems.

More cat because I’ve been deprived of the opportunity to do this for my entire life:

  1. As beautiful as Isla Paradiso is, it’s one of the more glitchy worlds, both from experience and my crappy google adventures. The sims leave boats EVERYWHERE. Though I’m sure you probably know that. But it’s pretty!

    I love this generation. They’re so great. Gumby’s the best and Frida…. well XD Honestly though, while I don’t read a lot of legacy blogs yours is probably my favourite (and also the first one I found), and I probably hold off on reading a lot because I’m like “well it won’t be as good as the Langurds” which is a terrible way to think but… I’m a terrible person 😛

    “Ironic how the most productive generation of this family has regressed into pointlessness and senility.

    • Yeah, I started to notice that partway into this generation! But I’m so used to playing with major lag that it almost doesn’t seem that bad to me, plus Overwatch is pretty good at rounding things up at midnight (turning boats back into pumpkins and all :P). We’ll see if I last more than one generation there.

      That’s honestly so nice of you to say ❤ Admittedly, I've also fallen out of the habit of reading other people's stories (and when I do, I'm pretty picky-choosy about it. It's just so hard to keep up with them!). But back in the day I read lots, and I was this little thirteen-year-old wishing I could write one of my own and have people actually read it… Maybe I'm living in the past or whatever, but my inner preteen gets really psyched at comments like this. So thanks. 😛

      His age bar stayed the same! I’d be facepalming so hard if it had reset, since the point all along has been to get rid of him haha.

  3. I LITERALLY CANNOT STOP LAUGHING.

    If I have a kid with Florin, I must have it. You must upload it for me.

    BTW: My hair didn’t come over to the new home either, so I have the brown replacement hair that always pops up when the game can’t find your hair.

    There’s an option in NRaas somewhere that turns teleporting on for vampires. That also turns it on for ghosts. It was on by default when I played Charles, and I just thought that was a racial power of ghosts. I figured out that I was actually cheating when Charles was like an old man, and then I just said “screw it.” Teleporting ghosts are pretty awesome.

    Also, “Berate Ignorance” really pisses me off. I keep meaning to turn it off for autonomy, but I actually want it to be trait-based. It’s too much fun when my Mean Spirited or Diva sims use it. It’s stupid when my Friendly sims use it on their best friends.

    Also, even when deghostified, Frieda keeps her electrical effect. That is just beyond awesome.

    BTW: I don’t know if you’ve gotten to present day with the Samples, but you’re now going around schtuping evil old guys before they die. You have one kid, or you’re about to have one kid.

    Like

    • Oh, yeah, come to think of it, if you believe the stream of heart-farts, you’re also desperately in star-crossed love with Sawyer. If I’d learned of this earlier, I’d probably have had him go for it just for the luls.

      Any interest in an inappropriate bastard child of your simself and Sawyer Sample? I would be beyond delighted to produce one.

      Like

      • I laughed pretty hard at the pop-up myself. Chances aren’t looking good for a kid — I think your simself has come to her senses because I keep getting “trouble is brewing” notifications. But hey, I could hypothetically create one…

        I noticed that. I fixed the colour shortly after this, but I don’t get around to fixing everyone properly until the end of the generation. I got really lazy about maintaining the townies.

        I’ve been wondering all along how you managed that! Maybe I’ll turn it on. It balances out somewhat – if Frieda’s been inching along half her life, she might as well speed along through the other half. Plus, it’s not like it’s THAT bad… It’s similar to zeneporting or using a teleportation pad, right?

        Mandrake using it on Gumby was hilariously illogical, since Mandrake is the Absent-Minded one. (I’ve always somewhat equated that to “dumb” in my head, but maybe that’s oversimplifying.)

        I was worried she wouldn’t! And Charles still sparkles — now I want to know what the other death types look like deghostified. 😀

        I’m actually kind of behind (the cat screwed up my plans) so I’m just finishing up Charles’ generation. I read a bunch of the recent stuff so I could make an informed voting choice, but I still have most of Sky and Dylan to go! Still, I am always up for trading bastards. Now I’m eager to read more so I can see who my simself is so hung up on. 😛

    • BTW: I know you’re about done with this generation, but if you click the sim and select NRaas->DebugEnabler->Reset Walk, you can stop the eternal sneaking.

      Also, ghost teleporting is in NRaas GoHere. City Hall->Nraas->GoHere->Teleport for Vampires. This enabled it for Vamps and Ghosts. Intuitive, huh?

  4. Ok, Frieda is just gorgeous. I’m so glad you found a mod to show how pretty she is. Ghosts are cool but I find you can never tell what they look like. The occasional bursts of lightning through her solid body is nothing short of stupendous really.

    Still an adorable kitten! I love posting pictures of my animals.

    • I’m nothing short of obsessed with her, so I’m glad you feel the same. 😀 Seriously, so many pictures in the chapters to come are just “omg Frieda is glorious” moments that I couldn’t bear to let slide. Her personality, on the other hand…

      I did see some pictures of your dog come up in my reader feed! ❤ I feel like I'm going to annoy people with all the pictures now that I'm a cat lady, but I don't care so much. 😛

      That would be cool! I just wanted matching husband-and-wife ghosts, but it wasn't meant to be. 😦

  5. Frieda has some very cool genetics, and they work nicely on her – she’s pretty but in a unique way, not just Face One, yay! Can’t wait to see what Omen looks like…and I’m now trying to guess what the baby naming theme is. Perhaps evil things associated with death?

    LOL, so agree about the “minor renovation”, it’s so easy to change things around in teh sims. The yellow fits with the town nicely…too bad the family doesn’t really fit with yellow. 😉 Really love Frieda and Gumby’s new room, pretty and dark as well.

    • I actually picked Frieda of the two Salas sisters because she was the furthest from face one. She has a really expressive face, which is nice for picture taking. Evil is definitely a factor in the theme, I can tell you that. 😛

      I’m always accepting simselves! I have no discipline so I’ve played almost to the end of this generation, but if you link me yours now, you can jump in for the last little bit of it. 🙂

      • Just playing if for fun, but I’m thinking about blogging. Would you read it if I did?

        Here’s a link to my simself. She’s in my studio so feel free to download any other sims you want as well! 😀

      • You have excellent timing – I’m hoping to finish up the playing today, so you may get into one of the last chapters if you’re (un)lucky. Also, are those Big Hero 6 names I see in your studio? :O

        I would definitely read it! I always recommend blogging since I’ve had such a great experience with it myself. 🙂

      • They are! That was the naming theme for my generation 3 kids. GoGo’s a badass even in sim form.

  7. I am bad at words right now because I finished the bulk of my difficult academic writing last night, so I’m just gonna say that this chapter was hilarious and amazing. Omen’s birth was perfect and Boa’s death fail was great and I laughed until I cried over Susan and Florin dating. Oh man.

    Bad comment is bad but ~oh well~

    • Congrats on (mostly) finishing your writing, that’s awesome! And that was actually pretty eloquent for a brain-is-broken, have-no-words-left composition. “Boa’s death fail” is a great way of putting it… Poor guy is so bad at everything, he’s even bad at dying. 😛

  8. “That’s more like it. But not really, because you look like a mutated zucchini.” Haha, this made me laugh XD

    Oooh, and this! “I’ve been at the mercy of men just following orders.” How could I, a Marvel fan, have not missed that? I see you put Gumby in the banner by the way – he looks great 😛

    • YESSS, high five! I’m not as well-versed in the Marvel universe as I should be, but I’m crazy about X-Men and Magneto in particular. That movie = ❤

      Hehe, I realized after editing the banner that Gumby's head is bigger than everyone else's. Too late to fix it… and like it says, perfection is not an option. 😛
