5.12 Crash Landing

Quick PSA before we start! (Just doing my civic duty.) Would any of you be interested in a round-robin-style legacy? If so, head over to this thread on Boolprop and get your name in while there’s room! The project is headed up by yours truly – which, based on my impressive resume, means it will probably die a swift death. But hey, you could change that!

Anyway, my days of abandoning legacies are behind me. The Langurds are still kicking, aren’t they? And biting, and scratching, and screaming…

Frieda: Ooga booga, I’m a scary ghost!

Rhapsody: Mama stop! So am I!

Thanks for illustrating my point, guys. Reeeeeal helpful.

Tonight on Party of Five, Julia finally swindles Charlie into driving lessons.

Fiasco: Like this?

Omen: Yes. Now turn left.

Fiasco: Where’s the blinker?

Omen: How should I know? I don’t have my licence.

Fiasco: *screeches to a halt*

And yet Omen is still the most qualified parental figure – at YA + 1 day, he’s officially older than his mom. Which is weird.

Screenshot-1936

And Grandpa Gumby, well, he barely considers himself human anymore.

Gumby: My son. ❤

Axorn: FATHER!

…Cut that shit out.

Screenshot-1933

On Leisure Day, the family got invited to a distant Langurd’s pool party. Cally took this opportunity to bond with her estranged half-uncle.

Calamity: You were an acrobat?! Can you teach me how to do a backflip?

Mandrake: If only I knew, girl.

With traits like hers, it’s probably for the best.

Screenshot-1935

Now that he’s up and walking, Crash has fallen into the habit of engaging strangers in really awkward stand-offs.

Man: Erm, where are your parents?

Crash: …

Man: Are you lost?

Crash: *scuffs foot*

Man: Do you need help?

Crash: 😀

This is the house they were at. Can we just acknowledge this blatant but beautiful rip-off of the Human Aquarium? What, EA, you think you can one-up me with your superior architecture and symmetry? Well you can, dammit! D:

Screenshot-1937

Fiasco cut short the driving lesson when he realized the blind were leading the blind, and the boys found themselves stranded in the outskirts of Paradise.

Omen: What’s that, Doomsday? You think Fifi should go stand under that dangerous waterfall?

Fiasco: I don’t think that’s such a-

Omen: He is the mouthpiece of the gods, Fiasco.

Fiasco: Okay.

Screenshot-1944

Fiasco: I think this is as far as I can go. Will the gods be mad at me? …Omen? Omen!

Screenshot-1950

Calamity: Then this goes here and that goes there…

Wtf are you doing?

Calamity: Making something from nothing!

Screenshot-1951

Calamity: Ta da!

Actually no, you made nothing from nothing. This timeless relic is worth $1??? Tell me, is this terrible coding or a cruel joke?

Screenshot-1952

Calamity: Well, here’s some more nothing.

Screenshot-1953

Calamity: And some more.

Omg, a whole $3 worth of rock (the dive well is worth nothing). And on that day the riches rained down upon them.

Screenshot-1955

Calamity: I think I will drown myself now.

Screenshot-1957

Before the eyes of the ancestors…

Calamity: Cowabunga!

Screenshot-1960

Calamity: *blub*

Screenshot-1961

Gumby: I am such a good father, reading to my son like this.

Yeah, he’s illiterate. And asleep.

Gumby: …….I’m just really hooked on this series, okay???

Screenshot-1963

Frieda: Why are the wine racks empty?

Did you check the bottom ones?

Frieda: Are you implying that I walk around with my nose in the air?

Well, I’m glad you said it so I didn’t have to. 😉

Screenshot-1964

I probably definitely forgot to mention it when he aged up, but I picked Chess Legend for Omen’s LTW because I hate myself and crave boredom.

Actually, it’s because he’s the eldest and this way I can (maybe) knock it off early whether he’s heir or not. And if he is, I’m sure he’ll find another grand ambition to occupy the rest of his days. Or retire to the rocking chair at age 35.

Screenshot-1967

Calamity: I think I saw a lantern fish down there!

Genuinely surprised you’re still alive, now come do something productive.

Calamity: Nah, I’m good.

Screenshot-1969

Gumby: And werk it… 2… 3… 4… WOW WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!

Crash: Hnngh?

Screenshot-1973

Gumby: Aaaand squat, squat, squat, squat…

You can stop now, he’s awake.

Gumby: Great! We can read more Little House on the Prairie! I’ll go get Book Three!

Screenshot-1976

Gumby: Don’t do that at the dinner table, young lady!

Calamity: Dad, you’re eating cereal.

Gumby: …Froot Loops are people too!

Screenshot-1978

I bought a dream pod for kicks. I don’t know as it’s accomplished anything so far except to put this dumb smile on Gumby’s face.

Gumby: I am such a good dad. I am the best dad.

Yeah, keep on dreaming. (Hardy har har.)

Screenshot-1981

Fiasco: So did we die from like a lightning strike, or a broken dishwasher, or?

Frieda: Son, you’re third-generation ghost. You didn’t die.

Fiasco: Oh.

Screenshot-1987

Fiasco: Well, there goes the one cool thing I had going for me.

Frieda: I shouldn’t have–

Fiasco: It’s fine. I’m fine.

Screenshot-1988

Frieda: He’s so going to cry.

Fiasco: I’m fine, Mom!

Screenshot-1989

She thought she’d make it up to him with a remedial driving lesson.

Frieda: Now turn left.

Fiasco: Where’s the blinker?

Frieda: Idk lol.

Fiasco: *tires screech*

**FADE OUT**

Screenshot-1997

**FADE IN**

Fiasco: Mom? Mom, are you okay??

Frieda: This was a grave mistake.

Screenshot-1999

Fiasco: Well, at least we’re already ghosts, right?

Frieda: …You are dead to me.

Screenshot-1984

That’s two of three ghost babies disowned – you’re running out of living dead progeny, Frieda!

Hard to imagine #3 ever putting a toe out of line though.

Rhapsody: I love my Mummy!

Mummy Bear: Really?! ‘Cause I love y– oh, awkward.

Screenshot-2003

Later, the entire family decided to betray me be supportive and go with Omen to his graduation.

Screenshot-2005

But even with all of them in attendance, they couldn’t make themselves useful.

Omen: Guys, I can’t carry her across the stage. Someone has to take her.

Skydancer: Yeah, I’m a little sore.

Gumby: Is that music I hear?

Crash: ?

Screenshot-2008

Omen: That’s fine, I’ll find somewhere to put her down.

Like… a fenced-in drug deal hotspot?

Screenshot-2012

Omen: Perfect.

Rhapsody: Brother? :/

Screenshot-2013

Karma! He ran out of time and had to graduate there, too. >:D

Omen: This is humiliating.

omen grad

Especially for a Valedictorian. What, did he phone in his speech or something? XD

Screenshot-1993

Lev’s clan was equally supportive, turning up in all their sparkling glory.

Deana: I love my family.

Graduate Deana recently got engaged to local Scott Collins, and married him shortly after the ceremony.

Middle child Dominique, present but not pictured, is officially dating Kristy Laserkatt-Medina (daughter of Julia’s simself). The pop-ups indicate she’s cheating on him, but that’s okay. If you remember last chapter, he’s probably cheating on her too.

The kid in the back is Molly, their youngest and probably their last.

Screenshot-2019

Skydancer: So I heard you keep diamonds in your skirt…

Frieda: Why do you say that? Who told you that? WHO?

Skydancer: …which was just a rumour, clearly.

Screenshot-2015

With his dream of being a professional certified driver up in flames, Fiasco went in search of a new ambition.

Screenshot-2020

Which promptly went up in flames as well.

Fiasco: Where are my fingers?

More importantly, why does your head look like a raddish?

Screenshot-2021

Better.

Fiasco: Is it really though?

Screenshot-2024

Crash, the dark horse of this shindig, already knows what he wants to do in life. That is, repeatedly work up a sweat without ever gaining a single skill point, because EA is a piece of– Omg, I totally forgot I gave him a tattoo. XD

Screenshot-2027

Rhapsody: When can I grow up and start impressing people?

Calamity: Kid, you reek of ambition. Just holding you is raising my blood pressure.

Rhapsody: Maybe you should work out more?

Calamity: Haha, good one.

Screenshot-2028

Omen: Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t that thing just blow you up?

Fiasco: I have to persevere! No one ever cured cancer by quitting!

Omen: Ah. Maybe now would be a good time to tell you that the world is ending in precisely twelve days.

Fiasco: WHAT??!

Omen: It’s true. I read it in the stars.

Screenshot-2032

With so many ghosts in the family, our netherworldly visitors are becoming rather blah. But not Lira. Lira will never not be entertaining.

Lira: You clean that floor, sonny. You clean it good.

Gumby: Yes, Ma.

Screenshot-2036

Omen: What the actual…

portal

My words exactly.

Screenshot-2038

And again, what the…

Frieda: I call it Sozin’s Comet.

That is acceptable.

Screenshot-2044

And on that note…

Fiasco: Omen says a comet will strike in 12 days, bringing destruction and an end to the world as we know it. I have to memorize every inch of the galaxy so I can find the culprit and warn NASA!

Okay, but don’t tire yourself out.

jared the medium white sub giant

He proceeded to discover celestial bodies and give them the most mundane names on the planet.

Cameron the Comet is a suspicious fellow and may be the harbinger of Omen’s apocalypse. Will confirm later.

Screenshot-2041

But then it was right on to the next activity. I dunno, buddy. I really think you found your niche with Jared and Cameron.

Fiasco: I’m just feeding these guys. It looks like they haven’t eaten in a while.

Pokey: Yeah, ’cause SOMEONE forgot about us…

Gumby (in background): Hum dee dum…

Screenshot-2049

Calamity: Can you not do that at the dinner table?

Omen: You’re eating ice cream.

Calamity: Yeah, and you made it go bad.

Omen: Right.

Screenshot-2046

So I can’t take headshots of my actual heir candidates, but I can take headshots of random nobodies who stumble across my camera? REALLY SAM YOU ARE SO GOOD AT THIS.

This nobody is a little bit relevant – her name is Charissa Langurd-Han. Now, I stopped joining up dots on the family tree after the last move, but I’m gonna throw a wild guess out there and say she’s descended from Lance.

Charissa: I’m an airhead and highly unpleasant.

See? I told you so!!

Screenshot-2052

And this be Amelia Carnes, Omen’s romantic interest from prom. The Face One is strong with this one, as with all of them. I don’t know why I still try.

Screenshot-2054

In other news, Frieda made dinner.

*record scratch*

Hold up, she WHAT?

Screenshot-2058

Frieda: I should be a chef!

Calamity: Please no.

Okay, I would have been more concerned if it hadn’t turned out horrible.

resort is a flop

What else can we fail at today, hmm, Langurds?

Screenshot-2062

Weird that we got more business when the resort was buried in snow. I mean, I look at this place and I think “Who wouldn’t want to stay here?”

And then I read the reviews from all the people who don’t want to stay here, and I really can’t argue with them.

Screenshot-2066

I still don’t have the best handle on alien abilities. So while I’m praying the genes away, I thought I’d make use of the special features while I can.

Calamity: Imperio!

Amelia: Actually, it’s Amelia. But I can see how you would–

Calamity: Silence! You are my slave now!

Sadly not how it works. In fact, I’m still not clear on how it works.

Screenshot-2068

Storm: All gather round the sacred salt lick! By the power vested in us, we three horse folk call upon the Comet of So–

OMG it’s you!! You’re summoning the apocalypse!

Screenshot-2072

Storm: I don’t know what you’re talking about. *ahem* We call upon the Comet of Sozin…

Pokey: You think all that training’s messing with her head?

Axorn: I DO THINK SO YES.

storm has been trained

She has been a bit overworked lately.

Screenshot-2074

This may genuinely be the first proper look we’ve had at Fiasco’s face since his birthday. Better hit that PrintScreen in case it doesn’t happen again.

He’s an odd duck, isn’t he? I think he has Frieda’s face shape and maybe her mouth. But that nose and those narrow, slanty eyes… They don’t look as though they belong to either parent. Which, in a game full of all-or-nothing genetics, is REALLY FREAKING COOL.

Rhapsody: No fair, they love you!

Gumby: I remember when I won the heir poll…

Against two faceclones. Yeah, that was a real grand slam!

Screenshot-2075

Omen must have had the sudden realization that he is a 25-year-old virgin.

Omen: I am so manly.

Passerby: Nice try, I just saw you sprint there from the chess table.

Omen: Dammit.

Screenshot-2078

It’s your lucky day, Rhapsody! You finally get your shot at impressing the masses!

Rhapsody: I’m so honoured, I–

Frieda: I’d better go see Storm, she seems lonely.

Sky: So does the microwave.

Rhapsody: Feeling the love. ❤

Screenshot-2080

Well, I certainly love her. I think I smell a Frieda clone (unless the eye shape is Gumby’s?) but it wouldn’t be the first time. Poor thing sprouted an “Unlucky” trait and a ScriptError in the seconds after she sparkled.

And now for The Mystery of the Hair: Still can’t see it? Tilt your screen up, then down. Then up and down and all around until you catch that tiny sheen of colour. It’s not actually black, but brown! Boa’s brown, in fact. Which I think comes to us from Molly French, Dax’s mother.

Never thought I’d get so worked up over poop-coloured hair!

Screenshot-2085

Teen: Dude, could you not do that in my living room?

Fiasco: This isn’t a living room, it’s a… a…

Sorry pal, that comeback looked a lot better on your brother and sister.

Screenshot-2087

Omen’s first ranked chess match was against Coolio Langurd, Florin’s clone. You may recall that Coolio has the untreatable gift of invisibility. It made for a pretty entertaining game.

Omen: A crushing defeat! Take that!

Coolio: And how you gonna prove it? >:D

Screenshot-2090

The trouble with open maps is…

Pokey: I’m tired of getting my legs broken all the time! I demand equality for horses! Or crosswalks at the very least!

Gumby: Oh hey, thanks for saving my life!

Pokey: Like I had a choice.

Screenshot-2096

Calamity: Hello, brother.

Fiasco: Hello, sister.

Crash: ?

No, Crash, that is not how normal siblings interact, and you should not follow their example.

Crash: Hmm.

Screenshot-2098

(Almost) all the siblings in one room. How adorable.

Omen: Everyone study hard, we want to do Mom proud with our ground-breaking science careers.

Rhapsody: I think I might be an arts kid.

Fiasco: I think I might go shelf-shopping.

Calamity: Lol, careers.

Screenshot-2101

After a riveting game of “I’d like to buy this pony… Oh, silly me, I already own that!” Fiasco won serious big brother points by reading Crash a book he actually enjoyed.

Fiasco: When the horse canters to the right, his right foreleg will be leading, and this is known as cantering on the right rein. When the horse canters to the left, his left foreleg will be leading, and this is known as cantering on the left rein.

Crash: 😀

Screenshot-1962

He then rewarded himself with a nice cup of tea.

Fiasco: I think I have figured out who I am.

fiasco enjoys jared

“Enjoying” Jared, are we? 😉

fiasco is gay

I KNEW IT!!

Screenshot-2107

Calamity: It says here this legacy’s never had a gay heir before. Does that mean Fiasco’s saleability just shot through the roof?

Screenshot-2108

Sky: Well, that’s not totally true. My grandma Katana had boyfriends and girlfriends, but she didn’t take anything seriously, least of all her relationships. And no one was ever really sure about Florin…

Calamity: Mm-hmm, good stuff. I’ll put it in my spreadsheet.

Sky: You have a spreadsheet?

Calamity: Well I thought I did. But I might have accidentally drawn a sailboat instead.

Screenshot-2110

Gumby: I can’t believe the rest of my band is dead. Time really flies.

Uh, Manny’s not dead yet.

Gumby: Just let me play my sad lament! *plunks out Axel F*

He’s still really not good.

Interlude:
Prom Phase 2 happened, but I don’t remember when. And who really cares? Here are the lowlights.

brock is the one who just invited fiasco over wtf

brock

You picked a good one, Cal.

fiasco and willie

This guy’s name is Willie Fogle which is adorbs and perf and I totes shipped them right off the bat.

Turns out both he and Brock are slightly chubby Face Ones with no marriage potential. Who would’ve guessed?

Screenshot-2115

Omen: It’s hopeless! How will I ever find a girl before the world ends? How, Axorn?

Axorn: WOE IS YOU, YOUNG MASTER

Omen: I feel so validated. Thank you.

Screenshot-2118

Pssst. Hey Omen. Isn’t that a girl right there?

Omen: Hold on, I’m busy.

Screenshot-2119

Omen: HOW DARE YOU SKIP SCHOOL YOU FUCKING IMBECILE? GET ON YOUR DAMN BIKE AND GO LEARN A THING OR TWO, THAT’S ALL IT SHOULD TAKE TO FILL UP THAT TINY HEAD OF YOURS!

Livy: Wow, what a charmer. Are we playing this chess match or what?

Screenshot-2125

Omen: Right. Sorry about that. Let’s begin.

Crash (whispers): I hope you lose!

He didn’t, unfortunately.

Screenshot-2128

Uh-oh.

Screenshot-2131

But then…

Omen: Rain sucks. Like, if I wanted to get wet, I’d go swimming. You know?

Of course Mr. Genius turns into a complete dunderhead when speaking to women.

Screenshot-2127

Livy: Good thing I like the bad boys!

Omen: What?

Livy: Uh, nothing. Nothing at all.

Screenshot-2133

Omen: You have all the tenacity of a puff pastry, and you look like one too!

Screenshot-2135

Omen: You’re a boring fifth wheel and you should never have been born!

Screenshot-2136

Omen: So, where were we?

livy's letter to omen

Dammit, Livy, don’t encourage him!

LIVY ASKS GUMBY OUT

Plot twist: turns out she’s only going through the son to get to the father.

Screenshot-2139

Gumby: Oh yeah, look who’s still got it!

You never had it.

Fiasco: Dad, I think you’re levitating me!

Gumby: Like I said, look who’s still got it!

You never had that either.

Screenshot-2141

Crash did get on his bike as his brother demanded, probably to get as far as possible from said brother.

Screenshot-2147

But before Crash could cover much ground… he crashed.

Screenshot-2151

Rhapsody: Brother? Are you okay?

Crash: *snore*

Apparently those four words took a lot out of him. XD

Guess who underestimated their posting ability? Guess who just punched this out in a single day? Guess who needs to learn how to focus at work?

If you answered “Gryffindork,” you’d be wrong.

The correct answer is “an overcaffeinated, hypertense, word-spewing version of the Gryffindork you know and love.”

Just kidding, that is the Gryffindork you know and (possibly, no pressure or anything) love.

I just realized something really cool about the timing of these next few posts, so I’m gonna try my best to blast through those as well. However, I mean it this time when I say no more ’til after Nationals. To quote a masterpiece, I gotta get my head in the game.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out the round-robin legacy thread! ‘Cause I know you all need one more thing on your plates. 😉

  2. This chapter was SO GOOD oh my gosh. Congrats on the one day thing! My chapters take me a couple hours each, but that’s because I tend to plow through everything with the delicacy and thoughtfulness of an enraged bull.

    But, my simself. What the heck is she doing!? Though if you can’t find Omen a spouse and she’s not old yet I’ll totally take it 😛 Oh, and do you have a version of YOUR simself with CC yet!? It’s only fair, you have me screwing up shit in your game 😛

    And oh my, the references… Brock, Sozin!
    The “Fruit Loops are people too!” made me laugh. As did Lyra Portal-ing through the ceiling. Your game has so many glitches – like what the hell was that thing with the car!?
    Speaking of cars, poor Fiasco!

    Raphsody and Calamity are probably my favourites right now, but that’s up for change, of course. Crash’s no-speaking thing is great though! XD

    • A couple hours… *feels inadequate* Don’t knock your writing though! We definitely have different styles, but I don’t think you realize how sloppy and error-ridden my posts would be if I wrote them in a few hours. XD Speed writing is a talent (and I don’t have it).

      So… is this you giving them your blessing? Because I’m totally down. Depending on a few things of course, like whether Omen is heir (unlikely) and whether or not he lives to marry (I may kill him first). Oh, and I finally uploaded a CC-free simself! She’s on the “Author” page, along with links to the CC hairstyles I use (none of the EA ones are even close to what my hair looks like).

      The references are never lost on you, are they? 😉 I really want Froot Loops now (actually, they became part of my pre-quidditch breakfast ritual at Nationals, so I see many in my future). My game is wonderfully glitchy, although having just read the skating/swimming scene in the Gordons, I can safely say right back at’cha. 😛

      The girls are pretty great. But so are the boys… Ahhh, I’m a broken record but this heir poll is gonna be so hard! :/

      • I’d kind of like to be able to give that much time to my posts, but the truth is I’m just way too lazy and sit on top of my screenshots for weeks, and then go ‘I WANTED TO POST TODAY’ and write it all in three hours. If I focus.
        Though I am trying to improve my style in my book-writing! Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with my current style, I just feel it could be better.

        Totally! Though I have updated my simself, so do what you will with that information! I’m both terrified and insanely curious over what kind of child those two would spawn… And I’m totally grabbing and dumping your simself into my games RIGHT NOW.

        It’s because I’m so awesome 😉 In my dreams XD

    And also, after this post, loving Fiasco even more. He’s the perfect kind of aimless pathetic heir that the Langurds have never seen! And Calamity is right about his gayness increasing the saleablity. Though it’s more about the mixed faces.

    Stupid game and the Face One epidemic. Even with nraas mods it doesn’t help, and I hate Awesomemod… you could always take a prospect into CAS and ransomise for a more interesting face?

    • Well, I wrote this chapter at work and considering our network is monitored, I was probably getting weird looks behind my back (literally, the IT department sits behind me). XD

      Fiasco has a lot of things going for him. He also kind of annoys me for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on. Probably because’s he’s too good, and not in Skydancer’s robotic, unfeeling way. 😛

      I’ve considered that! But we haven’t exhausted our prospects just yet… in fact I’m considering another move, which would broaden the pool considerably.

      Liked by 1 person

    • *Putting on tech support geek hat*

      NRaas does fix the face one epidemic, but it doesn’t do it by default. If you use these settings, it gets way better:

      City Hall->NRaas->StoryProgression->Options: Sims->Options: Immigration/Emigration->Replace Service Sims With Immigrants=TRUE
      (If you ever use them) .. Options: Sims->Options: Immigration/Emigration->Replace NPC Roommates With Immigrants = TRUE

      You’ll then get a bunch of options under Immigration/Emigration. Twiddle them how you like, but the default settings aren’t bad. I went ahead and set the chance of random offspring to 0, which might’ve been overkill. I don’t think NRaas random is the same as EA “random” (i.e. face one), but it might be.

      Then make sure that your townsfolk minimize face one.

      If you leave a good chance of bin offspring, then you also get benefits from just loading cool-looking sims into your game without actually placing them.

  6. Commenting on two posts in one because I suck.

    I love your makeover of Calamity. And I’m still kind of crushed that she’s a face clone because that name is still my favorite. Omen did somehow manage to grow into a hottie. You’ve given him such a fun makeover that I wouldn’t track that he’s a clone except you told me. I can see it in Calamity, despite her original look.

    I think you’re right about Rhapsody — All Freida except her eyes. Even her jawline. But just one feature makes for a non-clone! Plus, the majority of her features are non-Langurd. And brown hair!

    You’re right, though — Fiasco has the best face so far! I’m kind of holding out to see how Crash looks when he ages up. I spent your entire generation hoping for Freida’s hair on Gumby’s skin. I got it and I’m going to cling to his potential awesomeness until the last possible moment.

    And hey, Livy is not face one AND she has flaming red hair! Sounds like a catch. I’m sure she’s married, but you can fix that.

    I’m sure things actually happened in these chapters, but I’m all about the genetics.

    Like

    • *because you are super efficient. You don’t suck!

      These are exactly my feelings about the kids. Face clones truly suck (especially 3rd generation face clones) but I don’t want them to be a death sentence for heir potential, especially if their traits and personal style are unique enough. Still, I’m not sure I want a bunch of Liras in a row up on that banner (I mean, just one is already terrifying).

      I’ll take what I can get! Rhapsody looks decently different, especially with the darker hair and eyebrows (oh yeah, and the green skin). I really like her face, actually. But yeah, Fiasco’s face knows what it’s doing. Crash ages up next chapter, I believe, so you should know very soon!

      Married = not an issue. Simself = a bit of an issue from a blogging standpoint. 😛 But I still have half a mind to set her up with Omen.

      If other things happened, I’ve already forgotten them… I could talk about sim genetics for days.

      • Oh yeah. I meant to mention that the idea of a round-robin legacy is soooo awesome. I can’t believe I’d even consider it. Fortunately, you seem to have volunteers for the first few generations, so I can see if I can get my shit together (it is to laugh).

  7. More reading! Holy crap this was fantastic. Poor Livy, getting involved with Omen can’t end well. He’s actually quite attractive, despite his…everything. Is it bad that I want something to come of this? (Might as well give you permission to marry my Simself off to a future Langurd, by the way.)

    Too bad that Brock is Face One, because that name would make him an instant marriage candidate in my game. Also loved the Portal reference, as my boyfriend and I are playing through Portal 2 together right now (we take turns because we are disgustingly cute).

    Crash is also adorable. Am I regretting voting for Calamity? Kind of…but she’ll be a great heir, so not really! 🙂

    Great chapter, as usual!
