5.14 Tentative Conclusion

Buckle ur seatbelts kiddos for u r about to read the most half-assed Langurd chapter ever written. I am so over Generation Five.

What’s that? Hold on a sec…

stats

What do you mean this is my 100th post?! You mean I actually have to TRY? I’m not ready for this, dammit! I’m drinking mocha with Bailey’s and watching Project Runway out of my left eye!

Screenshot-2437

Maybe that’s fitting, given that multitasking is the theme of this generation. And it’s been a successful theme if I may say so myself—all of the kids are (oxy)moronic in their own ways, but no one emblemizes the Age of Contradictions quite like Crash does. Athletic and a Genius, non-verbal and a total loose cannon… Oh, and his teen look may be based on this shit disturber:

haru

Leave me alone, I have my guilty pleasure animes just like everyone else.

Sadly, he doesn’t quite have Hatsuharu’s sex appeal.

Hayley: I don’t have to marry that, do I?

Omg, what a great idea!

Hashini-Patel kid: You walked right into that one.

Screenshot-2445

These two missed the doorway pile-up and half the school day on account of the bus got a massive flat. Between Walking Disaster and Saddest Man Alive, it’s hard to say whose presence caused it.

Fiasco: Let’s face it, it was me.

Calamity: *pockets knife* I’m good with that.

Screenshot-2447

Harder to say what causes Omen’s eyebrows to fall off when he bathes. If I had to guess, he may want to build bridges with the younger sibs before they prank off the rest of his body hair.

Omen: Bridges, with those twerps? Never! Filler ‘til I die.

Screenshot-2448

No amount of filler can put your entire face back on.

Frieda: This is my beautiful son.

Nope, try again.

Screenshot-2480

Frieda: This is my beautiful son.

And this is when I seriously consider doing photographs instead. There are fewer ways to screw up with a camera, right?

Screenshot-2451

Omen: Check out these eyebrows. You’d never guess they were fake, right?

Storm: What happens if I lick one?

Omen: Glue factory.

Storm: Point taken.

Screenshot-2456

But amidst all this, Omen keeps on sticking it to the haters. He’s up to his 6th or 7th chess opponent, and guess who that happens to be!

Samali: You’re kidding. You really want me to play this guy?

Why not?

Samali: I’d hate to see him cry those eyebrows off, is all.

Screenshot-2458

Omen: You talk a big game, Nike. Let’s see what you’re made of.

omen lost against samali

Fuck.

After dealing him his first loss, she left the lot and ignored all our calls for the next 24 hours.

Screenshot-2461

Far across the isle we find Skydancer in her usual haunt, but instead of skilling she’s casually pulling fireballs out of her pocket. You weren’t about to eat those, were you?

Skydancer: I can’t do this anymore. The quiet, the monotony… Not to mention I smell a hater.

that can only mean one thing

That must mean…

Screenshot-2462

Sam: I’m not here! You can’t see me!

Screenshot-2463

Ah yes, my dear simself.

Sam: I just hate her so muuuuuuch!

For what, saving you from incest?

Sam: I must make her life hell, that… that loser!

Screenshot-2465

Sam: She was lookin’ kinda dumb with her finger and her thumb in the shape of a… a… how does it go again?

I can’t wait to replace you when you die.

someone spread a rumour about sky and she lost all her friends

She must have spread some kind of rumour because the next minute, Team Wingman was no more. </3

Fixing this is my top priority when I reopen the save.

Screenshot-2467

Frieda rolled one of those “spend all my money on a thing” wishes, so I indulged her with this foosball table. She has waited so patiently for her greatest wish, after all.

Frieda: Hey, just out of interest, how many times do you think a person has to faint before their heart craps out?

Calamity: Lol mom just be straight with me. I have skills you could borrow.

Frieda: We both know you’re too lazy to use them.

Calamity: Truedat.

Screenshot-2468

This is what I mean about Crash – pumping iron one minute, snapping leads the next. He seems to live by the philosophy “Stop, Drop, and Homework.”

Frieda: What a convenient place to sit.

Screenshot-2474

Not that he doesn’t make time for his best bro.

Fiasco: Dangit. Best nine out of seventeen?

Crash: *shrug*

FIASCO gets invited to hayley's lol

Crash may have a leg-up in most walks of life, but it’s Fiasco who gets the coveted invite from the pretty girl.

Screenshot-2472

Fiasco: You’re cool with that, right? You know I don’t swing that way.*

Crash: *sadly eats a potato*

Fiasco: Don’t worry, I’ll talk you up.

*Dormant fridge puns wait to be appreciated.

Screenshot-2475

It seems that Crash didn’t trust his brother to make him look good. When their field trip let out later, he set off in hot pursuit.

Screenshot-2476

Unfortunately, he couldn’t bring himself to match Fiasco’s pace, and his stealth was shot to hell.

Fiasco: Oh, hey Crash! Where are you going?

Screenshot-2477

They got on separate buses for whatever reason, which only heightened the competition.

Crash: Drive through that bus.

Driver: Hey, I thought you were the kid who didn’t t—

Crash: DRIVE THROUGH THAT BUS!

Oh dear, Black Haru emerges…

blackharu

Screenshot-2478

Driver: Did they just drive through us?

Fiasco: Catch that traitor! …Um, that is, if you don’t mind.

Looks like Fifi is more of a Tohru type…

tohru2

Guys I’m kidding, this is definitely not a show that I watch. *shifty eyes*

Screenshot-2479

Crash had a solid lead. He also had no idea where he was going, since he wasn’t actually invited. And his (my) navigational instinct proved totally wrong, so he sprinted halfway across the island for nothing.

Screenshot-2482

As it turned out, that might’ve been for the best. Fiasco rocked up to find Hayley already fraternizing with Jamaal Something-Collins. Jamaal Something-Collins, of all people!!

Hayley: Hey Fifi, you made it!

Jamaal: You invited another guy?

Hayley: Relax, he’s gay. He’s also a total cinnamon roll.

Screenshot-2485

Fiasco: Listen here, you little punk. My brother is on his way and I would very much like to see him and Hayley ride off into the sunset, okay? If you have visions of getting in the way of that then I’m afraid we are going to have a problem, sir.

Screenshot-2486

Fiasco: Also please know I would never normally speak to you this way, and I understand if you need to beat me up now.

Hayley: I am so sorry, Jamaal…

Jamaal: You kidding? This guy’s a freakin’ badass.

Fiasco: Just punch me if you— wait, really?

Screenshot-2487

From there, he just had to keep the lovebirds apart until Crash figured his life out.

Fiasco: I hope you know it’s nothing personal, it’s just that my brother is way cooler than you. No offense. He’s got this whole mute chic thing going for him.

Jamaal: None taken.

Screenshot-2490

Fiasco: That’s not to say… er, you’d be a catch for anyone else. Like me. I’d catch you if I could.

Screenshot-2491

Jamaal: Dude, what are you saying?

Fiasco: Nothing, just ignore me. Most people do.

Crash: *ahem*

Oh, look who finally found his way!

Screenshot-2492

Hayley: I know you don’t talk, so let me save you the trouble. You’re creepy. I’m not interested. Also, you should take a shower.

Crash: 😥

Fiasco: All I’m saying is you look… delicious. Oh bother, that came out wrong again. I’m the worst. I should die.

Jamaal: Don’t sweat it, man.

Screenshot-2494

Crash cut his losses and went home, but Fiasco wasn’t quite finished yet.

Jamaal: You know what I like? Stars. Stars are the coolest.

Fiasco: I’m sorry, I think I just peed a little.

Hayley: This is not how my night was supposed to go.

I think this guy would say the same…

Screenshot-2496

Screenshot-2495

…if he said things.

Crash: *sigh*

Screenshot-2500

He might also explain to the cop that he was right across the street from his house and therefore not technically breaking curfew.

Instead, he got arrested.

Screenshot-2502

Fifi floated right past the police car almost as if he were a ghost or something.

Fiasco: I’m walkin’ on sunshine, whoa-oh!

And Omen finally got Samali over for rematch, but they had to migrate mid-game since they were both being wimps about the cold.

Screenshot-2518

It wasn’t until the sun rose that they got down to businesss.

Samali: I should really get on home.

Omen: DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE.

Screenshot-2507

Of all the places to recharge your smarts, this has got to be the dumbest. And yet—how awesomely trippy is this screenshot?

Calamity: So trippy, I might just fall and crack my head open.

My point exactly.

Screenshot-2512

Like father, like son. ❤

Omen: Omg delete plz!!!!!!

Screenshot-2520

It isn’t until his horses are in trouble that Gumby’s true fatherly instincts kick in.

Gumby: Shhh, it’s just a little rain, don’t be scared.

Pokey: Look who’s talking. You haven’t been inside the house in two days!

Gumby: THERE ARE DEAD PEOPLE IN THERE OKAY.

Screenshot-2523

Do my eyes deceive me? Is that skill bar almost full? It can’t be…

Screenshot-2524

It is! Congratulations, Sky – you just took an entire generation to max one skill! I have never been prouder!

Sky: Thanks!

And now to work on the second half of her LTW. :/

Screenshot-2532

Another way of looking at it – Skydancer maxing Charisma took the entire adult lifespan of a freaking unicorn.

Axorn: I FEEL GREAT.

storm maxes racing skill just as axorn ages up

While baby Storm maxed Racing in less than two weeks.

In other words, the horses lead more fulfilling lives than she does.

Screenshot-2534

It is only fitting that the specialest of dark snowflakes would share her birthday with a dark unicorn.

Calamity: Boo. I don’t wanna adult. Adulting sucks.

Screenshot-2535

Calamity: Actually, this isn’t so hard.

Fiasco: Guuurl, that’s ‘cause you ain’t trying.

I dunno, Crash seems to like the outfit.

Screenshot-2536

However, you don’t fix what isn’t broke and all that, so I made her over as close as possible to her teen outfits. Which now look skanky because she went up like twelve bra sizes. Oh well. Her YA trait is Dramatic, just like Omen’s.

Samali: That kid is going places. Not.

Thanks for your expert opinion, Sam.

Screenshot-2540

The boys waited the requisite 24 hours before calling up their RI hopefuls. They did so at the same time, in the same room, three feet away from each other just to make things super confusing.

(I have just been informed that the requisite is not 24 hours but three days. It’s a good thing I’m not a guy and don’t go on dates.)

Screenshot-2542

I think we can surmise who has the smoothest phone conversation skills.

Screenshot-2545

Look at these two, all old and sagely and fresh off of back-to-back races. They never slow down, do they?

Gumby: We did a thing.

Pokey: Yeah we did.

gumby and pokey win lol
final race to get ltw

Indeed, after two final races…

gumby's earnings

…Gumby became a Jockey!

Gumby: But I’ve always been a jockey!

Apparently not! It would have been nice if their crowning glory were the gold, not the bronze, but I’m not that nitpicky who are we kidding, I am definitely that nitpicky. The important thing was that Pokey was the one to cross the finish line with him. #otp

Screenshot-2548

Omen did finally beat Sam, and only then was she in no hurry to leave.

Samali: I don’t actually have anywhere to be. I’m retired.

zuko

Screenshot-2546

The next opponent was another simself, but poor Audrey had the misfortune of meeting Crash first.

Audrey: Can I help you?

Crash: …

everyone thinks crash is creepy

She promptly left.

I’m sure you’ve been dying to know what calling I chose for the sim who can’t lift a finger without breaking it.

Screenshot-2551

Well, this being the Age of Contradictions, it was only logical to pick the most illogical of the five options we were given. Firefighter Superhero it is!

calamity is a firefighter but wants to light a fire

I don’t see how this can go wrong.

Screenshot-2544

If she sticks to eating free snacks from the fridge, everyone should be able to keep their limbs.

Calamity: I take it all back – I love adulting!

She’s livin’ the dream, she is.

Screenshot-2589

With a second source of income (that’s right, only 40% of our adult population is employed – and that includes one self-employed-verging-on-retired) I decided to splurge and upgrade the resort. JSYK, I have nothing to do with this part of the building. It’s a premade rabbithole that evolves as you put money into it. I wish I could take credit for that pastel clapboard, as it is heavenly.

(I bet you didn’t know I was a pastel clapboard person. You do now.)

Screenshot-2556

I would just like it to be known that if you cater to all your reviewers’ whiny requests, your resort will literally be 50% food. I’m pretty sure I had to expand the deck to fit this all in.

Screenshot-2553

Things I’m Stupidly Proud of Part 2: thwarting the authorities and sneaking Crash out for a rendez-vous with Hayley. >:)

Having five adults in the house sucks, so walking off the lot just wasn’t happening. It’s a good thing we have a teleportation pad.

Screenshot-2557

Hayley: Not gonna lie, that was an impressive entrance.

Crash: *still dizzy from the trip*

Screenshot-2547

Jamaal was busy, so Fiasco had to settle for good old-fashioned snail mail.

Fiasco: I’m doing my homework.

Aw, where’s the fun in that?

Fiasco: There isn’t any. I’m a martyr.

Screenshot-2560

Things I’m Stupidly Proud of Part 3 (final instalment, I promise): Gumby purchased my first-ever Motive Mobile! I’ve already forgotten what was so great about it. All I know is that it doesn’t function as a horse trailer, which is disappointing.

fiasco wants to go to a bar or pub

OH FIFI. This is just too adorably pathetic. No one will ever believe you are cool. Please stop trying. ❤

Screenshot-2587

I made them rein in their expectations, so they built a snowman instead.

Fiasco: Squad goals?

while we are at resort hayley and jamaal backstab us

Just a few hours later, Hayley and Jamaal backstabbed us while we were at the resort taking heir poll pictures.

The fuck, guys!

Screenshot-2566

THE FUCK, guys??!

Omen: We’re plotting Skydancer’s destruction.

Sam: I like a man who talks about destruction.

Screenshot-2571

I TOLD you fighting Skydancer wasn’t going to end well.

Sam: This never happened.

Omen: Agreed.

Screenshot-2572

How can someone like Skydancer even have enemies? This right here is the closest she has come to committing a crime.

Also probably the coolest thing she has ever done, if we’re being honest.

Screenshot-2573

She’s just generally a shiny ball of goodness.

Skydancer: Yes, I believe there’s been a terrible mistake and I would like to fix it.

rhapsody military school

I almost pressed “No” because I got excited about her marching abilities, which just goes to show the kind of parent I’d be.

Screenshot-2575

But I didn’t! And look who’s home!

Rhapsody: This isn’t my home. My family is dead to me.

Friedumby’s sweet little flower returns from the military a changed woman…

rhapsody's report card

…well, kind of. She gained two Logic points.

Screenshot-2576

Rhapsody must have enjoyed herself somewhat because she glitched and wouldn’t come home. I’ve never done boarding school before, so I’m not sure if kids are supposed to return before their teen birthday – halp? Anyway, she was about two days overdue for a birthday when I pulled her out, which means EMERGENCY PARTY ON THE DOORMAT RIGHT NOW!

Rhapsody: I am so alone in life!

Screenshot-2581

Here she is, all aged up and made over. I’m low-key in love with her, so back off.

Rhapsody: Great, now I’ll never get a boyfriend.

This edgy look is called “how the fuck do you dress an athlete who hates the outdoors?” which I think turned out nice all things considered.

Screenshot-2577

All that marching and being yelled at must have messed her up because she rolled Socially Awkward in addition to Athletic, Unlucky, and Hates the Outdoors.

Screenshot-2584

And no, none of those traits are remotely musical or artistic, but I made the executive decision that she must play piano simply because…

Rhapsody: Mama… Just killed a man… Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger, now he’s dead…

We may have created a monster.

Screenshot-2615

Okay, one last Thing that I Am Stupidly Proud of: THESE KIDS.

How great are they? And how can we possibly pick just one? Man, I’d hate to be responsible for that decision. XD

While you hum and haw and tear your hair out in distress, enjoy some rejects from the photo-taking session!

Calamity: Haha one sec, I think my hip popped out.

Where have I seen this before?

I always knew these kids were cool.

So it turns out you can transport horses by boat taxi…

Screenshot-2623

…but you probably shouldn’t.

Also, if another frozen body turns up on the shores of the Fool’s Goldmine…

Screenshot-2626

…it’s probably the owner.

Frieda will be pleased.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Did we really just finish Generation Five?

Have I really written 100 posts on this thing?

Did I really have the freakish bizarro luck to have my 100th post fall at the exact halfway point of the legacy?

And then there’s this…

1000likes

Which was super cool in itself, but even cooler when I realized we hit 500 less than a year ago??

Forgive me my hyperventilating. I’m pathetic. And I’m going to cobble together an heir poll now, so bear with me! And Happy Simming!

  1. You know what’s most awesome about that stat snapshot at the top? The ‘best ever’ day is my birthday! I was probably only 1 view on that day, promise I didn’t log on a bunch of times 🙂

    ZOMG, my simself pwned Gumby, woot! Ignoring calls after winning sounds about right, I’m a sore winner like that 😛 And I can totally understand being a wimp about the cold; she’s wearing flip flops and three-quarter pants in the snow!

    That pic of Gumby + Omen recharging together is so epic. Crazy camera angles FTW!

    Man, going to be so hard to choose just one child to continue the legacy. I’m really loving that Crash got Freida’s hair, but also love Fiasco’s lameness, and Rhapsody has an interesting face.

    • That’s amazing! Are you sure you didn’t spend your birthday obsessively re-reading my blog though? (Just kidding – I was watching my notifications that day and I’m pretty sure all the views came from one person reading the archives, which is pretty impressive in itself.)

      Haha, I think you’re just really good at being a sim. She always seems to walk around the game being like “lol peasants” and is totally immune to the childish antics of the other simselves. I guess that is pretty inappropriate snow attire… I tend to be super critical of sims in winter because they don’t know how good they have it. :P)

      I couldn’t resist taking it, even though they hate each other. 😀

      I’m still reeling from this heir poll… I’m sad for all the kids I won’t get to play, but I think I would have been no matter the result, haha.

      • While I have reread this blog an crazy number of times, probably wasn’t on my birthday. Then again, the Loner Bookworm in me would love to spend a birthday alone reading, so it might have been! Is it sad that I’m good at being a sim? She seems to have a more interesting life than I do atm, even if she does just read and look down on people.

        At least with SP, we’ll get a glimpse into the spares lives, unlike in TS4. Hopefully at least a couple of them can be as happy as JeffLeff. And you know that some of them will probably end up in our games, so you could watch us torture them 🙂 I’m still trying to get a Langurd into my Epic legacy; one of the genius boys could work for the Medical gen, and Calamity for the Police one.

      • Meh, I dont’ think it’s sad at all. Considering the rest of us suck at it so much, I think it’s something to be proud of. 😛

        I would LOVE to see a Langurd marry into the Rourkes! And of all the generations, this one probably has the most promising spares. Plus, fingers crossed, these guys are technically 3rd generation alien so the green genes should be on their way out soon, haha.

  2. I DON’T KNOW WHO TO PICK D:

    I’m gonna have to actually take time to think about it… I’m torn between two.

    Yet another awesome chapter that is definitely not a disjointed pile of crap 😛

    I remember seeing your 500 likes last time and realising I hadn’t liked any of them myself, and so started doing that XD I was tempted to go back through all the old posts and like them too, but that might’ve been a bit weird..

    But hey, congrats on the 100 posts and 1000 likes! My cat has gone back to sleep (I woke him up to ask who I should vote for and he glared at me so I left him alone) but I’m sure he’d congratulate you too. He congratulated me on 50 posts by climbing on my desk and walking all over my keyboard, so I’d love to know what he’d do for 1000.

    Anyway, enough about my cat, I’m gonna go off and think about who to vote for. Why did you make it so hard D:

      You didn’t like my posts???! *shunned* Jk, I don’t get validation from people pressing buttons or anything… I get it from comments, of course! XD And you’ve been very generous with those!

      Thanks (to you and your cat)! I would totally trust his judgement on who should be heir. Cats know best, after all. I look forward to hearing what yours does when you reach 1000 – here’s hoping it doesn’t involve mass destruction of furniture or electronics!
      (My cat is very rarely supportive/helpful when it comes to my simming. Right now he’s being such a pest that I had to put him up on a really high windowsill that he loves to sit on but is too proud to admit he can’t get down from. It works out well for both of us.)

      It’s not my fault! It’s these damn alien ghost kids, I tell you! D:

      • I voted Calamity! I HAD been singing Bohemian Rhapsody at work and felt like maybe it was a sign… but I identify too hard with Calamity and her naps (and I love her colour scheme) so I had to.

        Of course! I love getting comments, so I’m always extra generous with my own because I know how great they are 😀 That and your posts are always fantastic so totally deserve them.

        I would say Midnight says you’re welcome, but he’s currently climbing out of a hay basket and dragging hay around the kitchen. So he probably doesn’t say that.
        Sucks that your cat isn’t helpful though! Midnight just comes into my room and takes lots of naps, so I get kitty smell and kitty purring. There’s usually more people than me in the house, so he goes to harass them instead. It’s only when there’s no food do I get a constant barrage of meowing and cat in my face!

      • Midnight sounds adorable. ❤ Dewey is an obnoxious little rascal, but he's also 11 months old, so I try to be patient with him. He's still in that "What would you do if I knocked this glass vase off the table? Oops, I just did" phase (although I get the impression he may never grow out of it). Oh, and he seems to think I'm starving him, so the "barrage of meowing and cat in my face" is a round-the-clock occurrence. XD

    I watched the first season of Fruit Basket! It was really entertaining. But it also started to get that annoying character overload problem of everything in that genre.

    For some reason, I couldn’t stop laughing at Freida’s portrait of Omen with a great big black hole for a head.

    Genetics-wise, I just LOVE Rhapsody’s face. I think I want her in one of my towns. But I might be developing a crush on Crash….

    • Holy actual shit though — 390 posts???! I really am a pansy compared to that. Writing 50 per generation is quite the feat in itself, so kudos, crazy person. 😛

      So true on the character overload thing – maybe it’s better that they didn’t tackle the rest of the story, since the manga got even more overloaded and complicated.

      I almost didn’t include that screenshot because it seemed irrelevant. On second thought, it is quite essential to show the depth of Frieda’s motherly love.

      I’m really going to have to do something with Rhapsody after this – I cheated her out of so much character development when I sent her to boarding school. And same for Crash, when I decided he should be mute…

WHAT DID I EVER DO TO YOU, WORDPRESS?

        *deep breaths*

        What do you mean cheating Crash by making him mute? That IS character development! I loved it. Please don’t help him discover his voice. Well, unless it would be really funny. Also, what exactly was he saying on the phone when asking his chick out on a date??

        I hate boarding school and won’t use it. If I have too many kids to handle, it’s my own damn fault — or something. Youth is when my sims develop their characters. Rhapsody is young. She’ll get a chance to show her colors before she has to move out :).

      • I’m willing to take full responsibility for the spam fiasco if only because I love WordPress so much and hate to admit it has faults. But yeah, it has the occasional inexplicable glitch. Sucks that it had to be the comment thing when that’s the reason you moved over here in the first place!

        I’m so not used to avoiding dialogue, I guess it’s just weird for me having a character who doesn’t talk. 😛 But if it’s working for him, hey, it’s less work for me when a sim’s only lines are “…” and “Hurr?”. Who knows what relevance garbage bags have to dating, but those random thought bubbles are the only reason I don’t play with the hideheadlines cheat.

        I know now that I also hate boarding school, and really I only sent Rhapsody because I thought it would be hilarious if Omen’s big-brother power trip went too far. That, and I wanted her to be able to salute… but we didn’t even get that because she didn’t technically finish. 😥

        Your post size works perfectly for the way you tell your story, and I haven’t noticed any gaping editing problems! If I let myself write short posts, I’d pat myself on the back after each one and feel all accomplished and take a three-week break and never get anywhere…

  6. Woo 100 posts! I’m only at 63 myself, so I’ll probably hit 100 shortly before the end of the legacy at this rate. 😀

    Gumby actually finished his LTW? I am shocked. I didn’t think he’d actually make it, what with the whole being lazy and fainting constantly.

    I love Sam’s (uh…not you Sam, Angel Sam) simself and her chess saga. Omen sure does love to get himself involved with Simselves, doesn’t he?

    Calamity sure has huge…tracts of land. Her adult look suits her though, but anything can look inappropriate if you have too much boobage. (Source: my life 😦 ) Rhapsody is very pretty. She’s pretty much all Frieda with Gumby’s colouring and the magic Boa hair, right?

    I’m all caught up, wow! Did not expect this to happen. Looking forward to seeing Calamity as heir!

  7. Aww, I was so excited for Fiasco finding a boyfriend, and now Jamaal’s stabbed him in the back with the girl. Oh well, hope he finds someone better 🙂
    The bus chase scene gave the biggest laugh I had this month. Thanks for that!
