7.21 Too Many Requests

What up, Simming World? I am pleased to announce that, after 1,118 days abroad, I am finally back in Canada and reunited with my beautiful, wonderful, absolute hunk of a PC. ❤

He’s been carefully preserved in a carbonite slab garbage bag inside a room that, during the last three years, has accumulated far less dust than my lungs did in Seoul.

After a tentative foray into the game, I can confirm that my saves are (mostly) booting, my CC is intact, and my mods are not crying out for updates. Probably because NraaS stopped updating in like 2018, but I digress.

I am less pleased to announce that I still have like ten posts’ worth of old crap to slog through before I can actually do anything with those saves. Who had money on “Gryff renews contract TWICE and still doesn’t run out of content”? Most of you, I presume.

WELL ANYWAY.

Previously, Siesta and Dusty’s quads aged out of puddinghood and into fully-fledged faces of their own. Allow me to reintroduce them.

Screenshot-809

Here we have Darth Maul…

Kyrii: Nice.

…and a dolphin sprouting majestically from her butt.

Kiko: I’ll take it.

Screenshot-800

Also some Weasleys.

Kougra: WAY too rich to be Weasleys.

Kau: Tell that to my stylist. And the person who has me sleeping in a tent.

*raises hand on both counts* But yeah, the Quad Squad is bordering on too cool for me. I can already tell that writing them is going to be a COMMITMENT.

Screenshot-794

I can also already tell that one of them will likely be taking over the family, which in a tragic sort of way means the elder three need not ever have been born.

Tonu: This is not what I ordered!!

Kiko: Don’t count yourself out, bro. It’s all about screentime from here.

Screenshot-811

Acara: Oh, please. As if we’re even getting any screentime after this.

Sorry, girl. What can I say? You were our intellectual go-getter, but Kyrii has, you know, an actual Genius trait.

Kyrii: I’m also not literal vanilla.

Acara: IT’S A DELICIOUS AND UNDERSTATED CLASSIC.

Screenshot-829

At least Acara still has one sister in her corn—

Kiko: Yo Ixi, you’re cool. Let’s make old people hand phones.

Ixi: Yeah, totes gnarly dude.

Acara: Sellout.

Ixi: I can’t help it. I crave acceptance.

Screenshot-1019

After all that talk, this is where I find Acara hours later.

Acara: I can be young and hip, too.

Yeaahhhh, I’m just gonna slowly walk away now.

Screenshot-815

And here comes the awkward moment that only graces us once in a lifespan!

Kougra: Girls? Guys? Enbies? Chickens?

Kau: Now why would you assume chick—

Kougra: Bro, look at yourself.

Ah yes, Sam. The exact screencaps you needed on the quads’ birthday. Kau, Kiko, Kyrii, and the family robot.

While I don’t have the cap saved, I can actually confirm that Kougra is also hetero, because I remember the disappointment. Maybe Dudley should be the heir.

Screenshot-866

Kau: I just don’t get it! Why would Kougra say I’m attracted to you? Am I the family joke?

Screenshot-871

Charles: Bitch, you could do a lot worse.

I’ll, err, leave you two alone.

Screenshot-877

Kau: I DON’T KNOW WHAT JUST HAPPENED.

Charles: Mmhmm. See you in two hours, pipsqueak.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-18 10_47_31 PM

I do not like the turn this has taken.

Screenshot-830

A universal tagline for Langurd life choices. Remember June the butler? Remember Tonu’s creepy thing for her? Yeah, I also would have been happier forgetting.

Tonu: String the shrubbery?

June: Why certainly, young master. I would be pleased to accommodate that request.

Screenshot-831

What? What request? What’s going on?!?

Screenshot-841

TONU NO.

Screenshot-845

June: Maybe your brothers and sisters would like their shrubbery strung, too.

Tonu: Unplug the toaster!

Everything is made ten times worse by June’s permafrozen smile.

Screenshot-847

I wonder who gave Tonu the idea to pursue such an inappropriate relationship.

Dusty: I am reading a book.

Yeah, except in your case, that could be just as bad a euphemism as “string the shrubbery.”

Dusty: String the what now?

Screenshot-887

The abhorrent old coward is at Military Level 9, and “reading a book” with his boss is practically his only hope of making Level 10 before he dies. Unfortunately, even that’s not going so well.

Patty: I just found out that you’re married!

Dusty: You knew I was married! My wife is your sister!

Patty: I have a SISTER?!

Dusty: Uh, yeah? You’re the eldest daughter of the O’Reilly-O’Connells, one of the feuding families of Dragon Valley?

Patty: There are dragons?!

Dusty: I’M SO CONFUSED.

Screenshot-900

Dusty: Look Patty, I don’t know what’s going on but I’m 92 years old and I just really wanna be an astronaut.

Patty: Whoa whoa whoa, don’t try to tell me that space is real too.

Dusty: PATTY WTF

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-19 1_01_24 PM

Somehow.

Also, the gosh darn paps finally did their job and spread some (100% legitimate) rumours. Dusty sued for defamation anyway.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-17 11_56_32 AM
The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-17 11_59_03 AM

Twice.

Screenshot-903

We’re really down to the wire on this one.

Dusty: Yes, is this NASA? Could you pull some strings for me, pretty please?

I’m pretty sure actually doing your job would be quicker at this point.

Dusty: I DON’T KNOW HOW. THAT’S HOW WE GOT HERE, OKAY?!

Screenshot-906

Siesta is sitting pretty having already fulfilled her LTW, which gives her all the more time to spend with her seven teenagers!

Kiko: Hey Mom, wanna film a TikTok?

Siesta: Eww god, did I really make this?

Their relationship is in the depths of red and it amuses me to no end.

Screenshot-912

Kiko: I don’t get it. I’m nothing but sugar and spice.

Kougra: You’re just missing “everything nice.”

Kyrii: And literally all your spatial awareness.

Kiko: Dude, there were four of us in that womb.

Kougra: Yeah and thank god we got out. Brb, going somewhere far away from you both.

Screenshot-941

The kids are quickly proving to be just as diverse in personality as they are in looks. Kiko, the de facto ringleader, is a giant troll with zero ambition and aaaaall the social influence.

Kiko: Omg is it cake though?!

Screenshot-942

Kiko: Hahaha, I knew it.

She mostly just makes faces at the TV and it’s somehow more amusing than anything else going on around here.

Screenshot-921

Kyrii is a big ol’ nerd who makes nerddom look much cooler than someone else I know.

Screenshot-913

Acara: Oh wow, I wish I cared.

Side note, Acara and Hans are already one of the longest-lasting teen relationships in my game.

Screenshot-935

Kougra is a silently rebellious loner who wants nothing to do with anyone, except maybe Pete.

Kougra: I’m gonna go to bed, I swear! Don’t tell Mom and Dad!

Pete: Pete no care. Krougla do what Krougla want.

Screenshot-939

Kougra: Really?! Wow, Pete! Thanks for being cool!

Pete: Kroooooool.

Screenshot-940

Kougra: Oh hey, in that case, can I get a cat?

Pete: Yorp!

Kougra: Sweet! You the best, Pete!

As for Kau, well, he’s a… um…

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-18 11_33_41 PM

???

Screenshot-974

Kau: Are these… my children?

OH GOD NO.

Hen 1: Should we set the chump straight?

Hen 2: Where’s the fun in that?

Screenshot-916

Ixi, whose little run-in with Mayor Lev may have inspired her into a career in politics, is working hard to overcome her robotic upbringing and develop those people skills.

Ixi: Why yes, Mr. President, I would love to dine with you this evening. I’ll have the 001110011001010001010110111— come on, Ixi! Get it together!

And yet she’s still on track to max charisma faster than Skydancer.

Screenshot-924

I guess that leaves Tonu.

Tonu: You forgot the milk.

Siesta: Please don’t speak to my machines that way.

Screenshot-929

I mean I really just have no idea what this kid’s deal is.

Tonu: One of the items on your wish list is on sale.

My favourite words.

Screenshot-1003

So yeah, in summary, seven teenagers is a lot to keep track of.

Siesta: I agree. This is the only way.

Wait, what are you doing?

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-18 11_38_17 PM

Enroll— SIESTA, you can’t just—

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-19 1_07_16 PM

Welp, that’s one way to parent.

Screenshot-1020

Ixi sails off to Beauxbatons (probably) and this PRECIOUS LITTLE FLOOF immediately arrives to take her place. Everyone meet Kadoatie!

Screenshot-1025

Kougra: Well hello there, itty bitty LIGHT OF MY LIFE.

Oh yeah, Kougra’s an Animal Lover, in case you forgot her traits like I did.

Furthermore, in case I forgot to divulge this generation’s name theme: it’s Neopets. You can see all the goofy creatures the kids are named after here. Kadoatie is a the name of a Petpet, aka a pet belonging to a Neopet, aka petception, which I thought was really clever at the time. Still kinda do. Also I just wanted to confuse everyone with more “K” names.

Screenshot-1029

Kougra: Wanna come sit on my shoulder while I stream Fortnite?

Kadoatie: Get a job!

Kougra: What?

Kadoatie: Invest in real estate!

Kougra: Who are you, Financial Advice Kitty?

Kadoatie: Grow your assets!

Kougra: Is it too late to return this thing?

Screenshot-945

Yes. Though I’m beginning to worry that we have a few too many mouths to feed.

Kau: You’re not getting rid of my children.

They are not your children.

Kau: But they look just like me!

Screenshot-960

Kau: I’m proud of you, son!

Chick: (• v •)

Screenshot-1030

Kiko: Are we all getting animal sidekicks now? Is that a thing?

Definitely not a thi—

Screenshot-1035

Kiko: Come to Mama, Satan.

Satan: *screeches*

I give up.

Screenshot-976

For all their individual “pursuits”, these two are definitely still in cahoots. #accidentalrhyme

Kau: Hey Kiko, guess what? I’m a father now.

Kiko: Good for you, Captain. Ping-pong?

Kau: You’re on!

Screenshot-989

Kau: Hmm, don’t you think it’ll be hard with that paddle in the way though?

Kiko: That’s what I was thinking. Cast it aside!

Screenshot-992

Kiko: That’s better. Now let’s ping some pong!

I wish I understood them even a little bit.

Screenshot-1004

Sometimes it feels like Tonu is the only one who makes any sense around here. He rolls the “Rockstar” LTW on a whim like every other delusional teen, except this time I decide to lock it in. If there’s anything certain about this guy it’s that he’s never going to be certain about anything, so I may as well let him sing about his feelings.

Tonu: ♫ I’ve been walking with the cheese, that’s that queso ♫

Screenshot-1012

Turns out his sweet tunes are enough to bring Kougra out of hibernation.

Kougra: Why is it raining in here?

Tonu: ♫ ‘Cause when we jumping it’s popping we jopping

Kougra: Thanks for the clarification.

Screenshot-1014

This is… school? City Hall? The library? I don’t know what this picture is for other than daaaaaamn, we need to get out of Dragon Valley STAT.

Screenshot-1048

But how can we leave when it constantly gives us dramatic scenes like this?

Kau: ♫ Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me

Screenshot-1041

Kau: ♫ We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot ♫

Hey, Kau?

Kau: SHH! ♫ Drink up, me hearties, yo ho!

Shouldn’t you be holding onto that bar?

Kau: Bar? I don’t need a—

Screenshot-1063

Kau: FIRE IN THE HOLE

Screenshot-1071

Kau: DAVY JONES’ LOCKER BE MY FATE

Screenshot-1077

Kau: BLRRBBBLLLBBB

Screenshot-1081

Kiko: Don’t worry bro, I’ll reel you in!

What else are sisters for?

Screenshot-1082

Kougra: Being pains in the ass, apparently.

Oh? Jealous much?

Acara: Well, aren’t you just a cutie-patootie.

Kadoatie: It’s never too early to save for retirement.

Acara: That’s exactly what I always say!

Huh, kinda seems like they’re made for each other.

Screenshot-1085

Kougra: No. Mine.

Kadoatie: File your taxes.

Kougra: Shut up.

Screenshot-1087

You know, I’m not sure if I buy that “Animal Lover” trait after all.

Kougra: Kau did WHAT now?

Screenshot-1088

Kougra: I knew it. And he had the nerve to act all high and mighty…

Charles: You want a piece of this too?

Kougra: Excuse me?

Screenshot-1092

Not in front of the little ones…

I have no idea what this even is. I am deeply sorry for the trauma. One more post ought to knock the rust off, I hope.

Happy Simming!

I like cats. This is a really thorough bio.

  1. Wonderful to see you back at your computer! I was just thinking about the Langurds and hoping you would return. I hope Seoul (which I can’t spell without the browser’s help) was great, and you’re not fluent in Korean and have tons of life experience from living in a different country that most people never get.

    Maybe your huge number of heirs this generation will slow you down enough for me to catch up. Not sure who I’m kidding on that :). I am complete confused by all the K names, and I don’t think I know what a Neopet is. I was going to go on a rant about feeling old (and I don’t think you’re THAT much younger than I am?) but then I looked it up and Neopets are from the late 90s, so I have no excuse.

    Yeah, I’ve been posting a lot recently, but in gameplay my G8 heir is still a child, and in posting my G7 patroness hasn’t actually had any kids yet. Also I started a new challenge because I’m self-destructive like that. I’m pretty sure I have chosen the heir for the Samples, though, and won’t do a poll for G8. Vickie’s firstborn is just a dumpster fire of traits, and I can’t wait to see him try to take charge. Possibly co-heir with his younger brother because they’re shaping up to be partners in (literal) crime. So that’s spoilers.

    • Fluent! Haha, let’s just say me speaking/writing Korean is about the same as you trying to spell Seoul. 😛 Learning by immersion was a crazy experience though! As was every other part of living there.

      I think we can safely say that it’s anyone’s game at this point. But I’m super thankful that you’re as stubborn as I am! Dude, we’ve both been going at this for a stupid amount of time! Also, I’m just shy of thirty, so no, I don’t expect our age gap is that big! I do know a lot of North American “90’s kids” who never got into Neopets though – I think maybe because it’s British, and I was living in Australia when it was big? Who knows.

      “Dumpster fire of traits” sounds simply delightful!
