7.12 Continue

Welcome to the real first chapter of Generation Seven! I should probably put a note on 7.1 to skip straight here, but I’m lazy and selfish and would rather make you all suffer through what I had to. #sorrynotsorry

Either way, we made it! The spares are outta here and the hype is off the charts.

Screenshot-439

Siesta: Omg is it finally my turn??! Omg omg okay, I have so many plans ahhhhh where should I start?!?

Screenshot-424

There is one obvious place to start…

Dusty: Can we really do this in front of all your stuffies?

Siesta: They’ve seen our beer pong skills. Do you think they can be any more traumatized?

Screenshot-433

Nah, they look like a pretty hardened bunch of tavern-dwellers to me.

Moomoocorn: I seen things man

20170803213144_1

This image brings me so much joy. Less than if Riza weren’t there, but going from a 12-sim to a 3-sim panel is a high very few things can induce.

20170803214018_1

A post-coitus Snowflake Day meal with Dusty’s ex-husband? Count us IN!

Screenshot-445

Better make things super awkward by showing up in separate vehicles.

Siesta: This baby is mine.

Yes I know, and you needed to have your triumphant solo drive across town, exploding the brain of every citizen who thought they lived in the Middle Ages.

Siesta: That’s my mission statement!

Screenshot-446

Siesta: Did the party start without me??!

No, that’s your mission statement. And how could it have, when you’re two hours early? I’m sure no one is even here yet.

Screenshot-447

Siesta: Hey, she’s here!

Kylee: I factored in four hours for traffic.

Derrick: Great, two Langurds in my foyer. Just what I wanted.

20170803214731_1

Family relations are extra special now that he’s remarried with Fiasco.

Screenshot-450

And he’s never actually met his niece/homewrecker before, so it’s time to drive a sledgehammer through that ice.

Siesta: Hiya Derrick! I’ve heard so much about you! I’m gonna call you Uncle Derr-Bear, is that okay?

Derrick: Not even a little bit.

Screenshot-452

Siesta: Wow, what a rude man.

Maybe cut him some slack, you did tear apart his life.

Screenshot-453

Understandably, Derrick evicts everyone while he finishes preparing the feast (spoiler: there is no feast) and sarcastically suggests clearing up the leaves as a fun activity.

Kylee: Best party EVER!

Screenshot-456

Siesta doesn’t partake, but is equally entertained simply by being here.

Siesta: Ooh, can you get a pic of me? I wanna remember this night FOREVER!

Screenshot-458

Hey, look who’s finally here! In the basement, of all places?

Dusty: Only one place for a clumsy loner at the holiday party of the man he divorced.

Screenshot-460

Crash: Hurr hurr hurr

Screenshot-461

Dusty: Yes, I know.

Screenshot-463

Dusty: ‘Tis I.

Screenshot-465

Dusty: The garbage man.

Crash: *just sad for him now*

20170803215256_1

He rescued a butterfly from the bottom of the dumpster though and I just think that’s so beautiful and so Dusty.

Screenshot-470

Derrick serves a cheese plate. Derrick is done.

Siesta: Wow I sure am hungry after all the activities Dusty and I did earlier.

Good going, lay it on thick.

Screenshot-474

Siesta: Uh oh, that cheese doesn’t feel good in my belly. Could it be that Dusty and I are pregnant??!

Derrick: Oh no, that cheese has just been in my fridge for six years.

Screenshot-477

Siesta: *loud puking noises*

Screenshot-478

Derrick: *slams the door on her*

Screenshot-480

Silly Derrick – we all know you can’t take a Langurd out with food poisoning. In fact the only reason they’re eating like kings these days is because of the stashes Kip left.

Siesta: I could make this. Doesn’t look so hard.

Oh yeah? What are the ingredients?

Siesta: …cheeseburger.

Screenshot-479

As you can see, the eternal curse of “fuck up the heir’s portrait” is still upon us. How the hell did you manage to make her look gap-toothed?

Riza: She’s not?

In other Riza news…

20170803231015_1
20170804001749_1

She turned out two more crappy books.

20170804001823_1

…and may well not have a family to live with after I toss her out.

20170803223236_1

And while we’re doing pop-ups – Trelilah had their third kid! (I sneak in and rename her Marquess to fit with their theme.)

Firstborn Duke is a teen now…

20170803233626_1
20170804002915_1

And is very popular indeed with the other teens of Dragon Valley. 😉

20170803221008_1

Also, somewhere out there a Langurd and an O’Reilly-O’Connell have formed the devil’s union. We hate you, Doritus.

Screenshot-481

Here is a picture of Dusty’s butt to segue into an update on his professional life.

20170804091618_1

When we got this popup last time, I wrongly attributed the act (perhaps because EA blatantly gendered “the General”)…

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is thumb.jpg

…to this random coworker from Dusty’s panel. The truth is it’s been years since I played this stuff and I did a truly terrible job of noting anything down.

20170804091635_1

I have him constantly doing this at work, not even remotely aware that actually…

20170804091644_1

*gasps* *vomits* *faints*

His real boss is Fiona O’Reilly-O’Connell, otherwise known as Siesta’s evil stepmother and one of his parents’ sworn enemies. No wonder he’s having such a shitty time at work.

But the bootlicking has done him good and he’s now a Squad Leader (Level 4), which sounds like a lot of pressure and I’m worried for him.

20170803222920_1

Which Dusty? OUR DUSTY?

Nuh-uh, that’s fake.

Screenshot-484

Siesta: Notice anything… different about me?

The Tewl-like look on your face?

Siesta: No, look down!

Good god, who left the bed unmade?

Siesta: Omg seriously!

20170803221534_1

I mean, this is probably wise, if Dusty is all we have as a male role model.

Screenshot-486

The one downside to inheriting the entire estate is that there’s a LOT of housekeeping to catch up on after half a generation of being sidetracked.

Siesta: This is so unfair.

I could call in Trance to repla—

Siesta: I LOVE LAUNDRY! 😀

Screenshot-489

Dusty: The horrors that have been committed in this dark place. *shudder*

Not wrong bud, I get the creeps every time I take pictures in here.

Screenshot-494

With that done, there’s another important milestone to attend to.

Siesta: Okay, I quadruple checked the code. I ran all the diagnostics. I disconnected the external servers. There should be no way this can fail.

Egg: Lol no promises.

Screenshot-497

Siesta: *sucks in the biggest breath* Pleasedon’texplodepleasedon’texplodepleasedon’t—

Screenshot-500

Dudley: Explode!

Siesta: Omg, I don’t believe it!

Everyone, meet Siesta’s first Plumbot creation: Dudley!

Screenshot-502

Dudley: Dudley… explode?

Siesta: Please don’t, you’re amazing!

Dudley: Amazing! 😀

Screenshot-504

First order of business: Establish that the human maker is taken and you cannot date her. #TheSiriEffect

Siesta: Dudley guess what? I’m having a baaaaaaby!

Screenshot-509

Dudley: Good!

Screenshot-511

Siesta: Here Dudley, if I tinker with your chips we might get past this one-word-responses thing.

Dudley: Tinker 😉

Screenshot-515

Siesta: Well?

Dudley: Potty.

Dusty: Yeah, that’s what they all call me.

Screenshot-519

Dudley: Master ❤

Siesta: This is the best decision I ever made.

20170804093856_1

In fact, it might be Siesta we have to keep an eye on. Largely because ELECTROCUTION.

20170804093826_1

Interestingly, we may also need to watch Dusty.

Screenshot-521

But probably not, because these two are a couple of mangled and folded puzzle pieces that miraculously found each other in the vacuum cleaner.

Siesta: I hope our baby is just like you. ❤

Dusty: NO! Why? Why would you say that?

Screenshot-522

Look, Dudley cooks! Take that, Kip! Never needed you anyway!

Screenshot-523

Dudley: Cookie.

Screenshot-526

Dudley: Pong! ❤

Screenshot-534

Dudley: Master shake shake!

Siesta: Haha this is fun!

Does your fetus think so?

Siesta: If it doesn’t it’s no child of mine!

Screenshot-536

Siesta seems like the kind of sim whose favourite food would be cookies, and I almost miscaptioned this photo. In fact it’s fish and chips, but I’m sure she’s thrilled to be eating food made by a bot.

Siesta: I made the thing that made this. I basically made this.

Let’s not get ahead—

Siesta: I am a chef.

Screenshot-541

Sweet dreams, chef.

Does she pretty much live the life now or what?

Screenshot-543

While she naps away the afternoon, Dudley gets dinner ready.

Dudley: Noooooooooodle.

Screenshot-547

His maker opts for an ice cream appetizer first.

Riza: So you’re having a kid, eh?

Siesta: Yuh-huh.

Screenshot-548

Riza: My artworks are kind of like my children. I could give you some parenting tips.

Siesta: Could you try not being like this?

I second that.

Screenshot-551

Riza: Good thing it’s my birthday! I’m gonna be so different when I’m older!

Let’s hope.

Screenshot-552

Riza: *looks exactly the same* *develops Unflirty due to indifferent study habits*

That’s our Riza.

Screenshot-555

Dudley… did you put watermelon in a frying pan?

Dudley: Egg 😀

You know what, never mind.

Screenshot-556

We have much more important things to observe.

Siesta: Ooooh, sounds fun! Where are we going?

Screenshot-561

Siesta: Wait! No! This isn’t fun!

Screenshot-562Screenshot-563Screenshot-564

The many faces of Siesta’s 10-second labour.

Screenshot-566

We finally did it! 8th gen in the flesh!

This oddly human-looking child (she has Grandpa Aiden’s skintone, I think) is Acara Langurd. She’s Excitable and Clumsy, a Pisces, and a lover of Latin music, pumpkin pie, and spiceberry.

Sounds like a basic fall-loving white girl who thinks going to salsa nights makes her extra spicy.

Screenshot-570

Siesta: Alright, that’s done. Time to go!

Dudley: Go?

Screenshot-571

Siesta: Hurry up, Riza! I just gave birth and I’m moving faster than you.

Riza: Gee sorry, I’m a little busy.

20170804092142_1
20170804092121_1

Yeah, the game tried to make her graduate instead of time travelling. The audacity!

Screenshot-575

But don’t worry, she still made it.

Riza: Ugh. I don’t get why you brought me. I doubt art has changed much in a few centuries.

Siesta: Ooooh, I wonder if they still have swimming pools!

Screenshot-616

Just to save us any more Riza focus, this is how she spends her trip to the future. In fact I don’t think I would be remiss to say that this is how she spends her actual future in its entirety.

Screenshot-578

Siesta gets a little crazier and tries the food synthesizer.

Siesta: Wow, I am such a good chef!

20170804093525_1

Uh no, all you did was press a button and it still sucks.

Screenshot-582

I send her to check out Legacy Park, one of the many monumentally important things I failed to cover on our first trip here.

Screenshot-586

Siesta: OoOooOooh, who’s she?

20170804094432_1

He is responsible for the first ever Plumbot, but not for long. This statue is ours, it has been decided.

Screenshot-590

Emit: It’s nice to see you, Siesta. When we met I was sure you would explode the almanac and make spaghetti of the time-space continuum. Now look at you! You have your very own Plumbot.

Dudley: Masterrrrrrrr ❤

Screenshot-595

Emit: Funny story, I found some of your descendants and it looks like they’re the same as mine!

Siesta: Haha what? But you’re not my father.

Emit: That’s not what I–

Siesta: Nice catching up, gotta go!

Emit: Dammit. Every time.

Dudley: Father?

Screenshot-608

And now for a disordered jumble of snapshots from “Siesta’s Supply Hunting Adventures”:

Siesta: I will travel across the land

Screenshot-600

Siesta: Searching far and wide

Screenshot-603

Siesta: Each crystal plant to understand

Screenshot-604

Siesta: The loooooooooove that’s inside!

Nope, you ruined it.

Screenshot-605

Siesta: Gee, that is one fine door. Sure wish there was a way to open it.

(Don’t worry guys, I don’t stay dumb for much longer.)

Screenshot-609
20170804101301_1

Siesta: You teach me and I’ll teach you!

Go home.

Screenshot-614

Siesta: I love this place. Can we stay here forever?

What about Dusty and Acara?

Siesta: Oh yeah. But don’t they exist in the future?

Uh, their ashes do. Do you KNOW what year you’re in??

Siesta: 2035ish?

Yikes, girl.

20170804102458_1

Further proof that Siesta actually sucks at the future.

Screenshot-625

Uh, Siesta…?

Siesta: What? I’m discombobulating my nanites.

Have you looked behind you?

Screenshot-624

Siesta: No, why?

Dudley: Master ❤

No reason.

Screenshot-628

We leave Dudley (whom I keep calling Dusty) to do bot stuff, and set out on another day of trawling for thingamajigs.

Siesta: You look like you could use some looooooove.

Crystal Plant: Talk dirty to me, baby.

Siesta: Ewwww no.

20170804100412_1

Well chew me up and spit me out, would that happen to be…?

Screenshot-639

And THERE’S something we absolutely could have done much earlier if I had even the slightest sense of HOW TO PLAY THE SIMS.

Screenshot-642

Siesta: Ehhhh doesn’t seem that exciting. Any dork could’a found this place.

Screenshot-644

Siesta: What is this, a pyramid for ants?

20170804103947_1

Ever get the sense that you’re just SEVEN YEARS LATE TO THE PARTY?

For the record, I’ve owned TS4 almost since its release but have yet to commit to it for longer than an hour. More and more I’m thinking I ought to get with the times and learn the ropes properly before they come out with another one. Say Langurds, how about an upgrade?

Screenshot-645

Siesta: We’re not interested, thank you for calling, bye!

The tribe has spoken.

Screenshot-647

Siesta: Oooooooh now that’s cool.

“Any dork could’a found it” though, right?

Screenshot-648

Siesta: No no, this is mine. I am the first one here ever. All hail Captain Siesta.

Screenshot-649

Sassybot: Sorry lady, but you ain’t the first.

Siesta: Oh my god! I’m so sorry!

Screenshot-655

Siesta: Oh Captain, my Captain!

Screenshot-652

Sassybot: No I’m serious, this is a major tourist trap. Everyone comes here.

Screenshot-657

Standing alone in the rain, her dreams of becoming a space pirate thoroughly dashed, Siesta has no choice…

Screenshot-659

…but to don the boxes of shame…

Screenshot-662

…and pursue her true calling as a Big Hero 6-style bot fighter.

20170804104616_1

Jk, Bot Siesta is more of the Baymax type and went in for something a little less violent. I have to say, the only robot name lamer than “Siesta Langurd” is “Robot from the Future.”

20170804104731_1

So many flashbacks to Gumby and Pokey’s races. Go for Broke never failed us. B-)

Screenshot-663

Speak of the devil! And whose descendant are you?!

Unicorn: I’m sorry, the Rarity-Axorn-Storm Memorial Corporation has forbidden all unicorns from interacting with humans forever.

Tbh, the most realistic thing about this future.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Daaaamn, I wrote 95% of this today on my school computer and I feel a little slimy for that, but I wasn’t about to stop with the captions flying so fast. Can you tell I’ve waited for this part FOREVER?

I was also way ahead on my wordcount goal for SimNano after the last chapter, so my lack of ridiculous verbosity here should even things out a bit. XD

Not much else to say – time to get plugging on the next one!

Happy Simming!

-Sam
