Disaster Has Struck
But not in a bad way! Sorry if my choice of title alarmed anyone. I see now that it could have been misconstrued. XD
What I mean to say is that the tiebreaker poll, which curiously got more votes than the original despite running for about half as long, has closed. This time, the result was clear…
…which means a new heir has officially landed!
Calamity: Ha, I knew it! And I didn’t even have to lift a finger!
You’re lifting one right now.
Calamity: Whatever. Suck it, Crash!
For anyone wondering – yes, I was rooting for Calamity this time around. I’m a terrible liar so you probably got that from the pros and cons, but I’d feel bad if you all voted based on what I want. I had mentally accepted Cal as heir after she held the lead for so long the first time, planning her house and her kids’ names and such, and I get emotionally attached to my ideas very quickly. Fun fact: Crash was my favourite going into the first poll, until I jumped ship to Fiasco, but by that stage Fifi had already fallen into a hole while his brother and sister blazed ahead. I could have gone for Omen at one point, but I panicked for the few hours he was in the lead, so I knew those feelings weren’t real. And a part of me was always pulling for Rhapsody (who had two votes before Crash had any, for the record). Basically, whichever kid won, I was always going to be sad for the other four.
But who has time to be sad when you’re on the verge of GENERATION SIX, BABY!? I’m still a little dazed at the idea, so I’m buying time by designing an elaborate new house and picking a world to drop it in. It’s gonna be real. In the meantime, I’m also making progress on the Boolprop round-robin legacy, so check that out if you feel like it! If you’re on the fence, note that it features a half-alien kleptomaniac cave dweller.
Thanks to everyone who voted—one time or both of the times—and Happy Simming!
