7.22 Permanent Redirect

Here we go. Let’s keep kicking the can that is this legacy!

Previously, Siesta decided that seven uniquely blossoming personalities were just too many, and shipped Ixi off to Snob School (her wish, not mine).

Screenshot-1100

While I do not condone her choices, I too am overwhelmed by numbers – especially when you account for a cat, two robots, and the fact that she and Dusty are mentally five.

I decide that the easiest way to deal with this is to keep them all in one place. As in literally cram them into a singular vehicle. What could go wrong?

Kau: Are we there yet?

Acara: Obviously not. We haven’t even left.

Dudley (driving): Left?

Siesta: No! You stupid hunk of junk!

Kiko: Jeez Mom, why don’t you ship him off to boarding school too?

Dusty: Who went to boarding school?

Tonu: Another day tells the tale of flowers.

Pete: ROD TURP!

Kougra: *dying a slow death in a middle seat*Screenshot-1103

It’s a loooooong five-second journey down the street to the itty bitty beach that never sees the sun.

Dudley: Beach?

Pete: BITCH!

Kau: This feels mighty familiar…

Flashback

Ah, yes. Ye Olde Family Vacation Jointe. Because going anywhere farther away is just too hard.

Screenshot-1110

However, it’s much nicer now that the kids can make full use of its features.

Kyrii: Did you know that there are more viruses in the ocean than stars in the Milky Way?

Kougra: That’s nice.

Kyrii: No it’s not. Are you even listening?

Kougra: No, I’m attempting to regress into a grain of sand. Shut up.

Screenshot-1116

At least they know how to use the beach, unlike the fools who birthed them.

Dusty: The ocean is great, but have you seen these wooden planks? They’re much safer.

Siesta: Kougra doesn’t know what she’s missing.

Screenshot-1111

Dusty may have a point. Waterproof or not, this will never look right.

Pete: I AM FUSH

Screenshot-1112

It does, of course, present another opportunity for Kau to work on those sea legs.

Kau: Man overboard!

Pete: Hegheugheughue *floating along happily*

Screenshot-1118

And for Siesta to… leave all her problems behind?

Kiko: Nice try, Mom. I’ve got your rudder hooked.

Siesta: It was worth a shot.

Screenshot-1124

But, like any good Langurd outing, this one gets completely pissed on by the gods.

Kau: Should I head back to land?

Of course not. You love the outdoors, remember?

Kau: You can’t use that to justify EVERY kind of abuse.

I absolutely can.

Screenshot-1125

Dusty: Oh boy. This weather…

Siesta: What’s wrong?

Dusty: I can’t help it… it just gets the confessions flowing…

Siesta: What confessions?

Screenshot-1126

Dusty: I’ve been cheating on you with my boss to get ahead at work.

Siesta: Oh, I knew tha— I mean, what?!

Screenshot-1128

Siesta: I can’t believe you, you— you big fat cheating cheaterpants! You stupid idiot! You’re nothing but a big stinking pile of— of— pile of stinky socks! Yeah!

Dusty: Stab me in the heart why don’t you! *sobs*

Kiko: Get back here, Kau! You can’t just row away from the drama!

Kau: Watch me!

Screenshot-1129

Siesta: There, that ought to keep him from messing around again. I really brought the thunder.

Dusty: Hey, Patty! No, I’m not busy. Be there in five.

Screenshot-1132

Dusty: REPORTING FOR DUTY SIR.

Patty: This will never get old.

Dusty will though. Dusty is already as old as the hills and will probably shrivel up and blow away, all while begging for one last promotion from a boss whom he OUTRANKS BY SIX WHOLE DEGREES.

Patty: Does that make you mad?

Mildly.

Screenshot-1142

One of these weirdos needs to take over stat, because they will clearly be much lower-maintenance.

Kyrii: Dad was wrong. The wood hurts.

Kiko: Did you figure that out with your genius trait?

Screenshot-1148

Acara: Yippee!! It’s my birthday and that means you have to give me screen time!

It sure does. Guess you’d better make good use of it.

Acara: Oh, I have lots of things prepared.

Screenshot-1153

Acara: First, I’m gonna make Gwen Stefani brows cool again!

Nope, bye.

Acara: But my new trait—

Is Good, so go get good at stuff, now bye.

Acara: Awwww man.

Screenshot-1157

On to more exciting things, like… this? I bet I can guess what website Kau’s browsing (and it rhymes with Schmirate Schmay).

Kau: Hardy har har.

Am I right though?

Kau: You would be if Tonu didn’t have his laptop set to Norwegian.

Makes sense.

Screenshot-1159

Kiko: So Captain, how’re those sea legs coming along? I’m thinking we should get on that looting game lickety split.

Screenshot-1162

Kau: Oh, it’s going great. I’ve got the lay of the whole river.

Kiko: Yeah, I’m thinking we aim a little bigger than that.

Screenshot-1165

Acara: How big, exactly?

Kiko: Oh crap, I didn’t know she was there. Quick, talk about vegetables!

Kau: Banana.

Acara: Yeah, I’m sure it’s a real mastermind plan.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-20 3_10_50 PM

Acara’s goals are much less exciting. I locked in the CEO LTW when she aged up, so she’s off to the salt mines. Figuratively, because where she’s going is way too bland to have any salt.

Also…

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-20 3_10_50 PM - Copy

Tell that to her parents’ marriage.

Screenshot-1174

After the beach kerfuffle, Siesta has evidently realized her insults could use some work.

Siesta: Hey, you dumb rocks! Get out of my house or I’ll… I’ll step on you!

Crystal Plant: Wow, I’m so scared.

Siesta: Really?

Crystal Plant: No. That was pathetic.

Screenshot-1175

Crystal Plant: *unleashes a stream of profanities*

Siesta: Where did you learn to do that?

Screenshot-1169

How is pet ownership going, you ask? I don’t know why you would ask that when our track record is so spotless, but it’s going great. Little Kadoatie is barely even a tripping hazard and on an unrelated note, I didn’t know we still had dragons!

Screenshot-1182

Kadoatie: You should feed your investments regularly.

Kougra: Not when you keep phrasing it that way.

Screenshot-1187

Kau learns the ways of the wild from the Sim equivalent of Bear Grylls.

Monkey Stovez: Alrighty, this looks like a nice place to set up camp. First we gon’ chop down these here trees for firewood. Then I’ll stew up some of them glossy-lookin’ plants for dinner.

Kau: I need to see how this ends.

Screenshot-1202

Kougra did her duty like the diligent cat mom she is. Someone else, it turns out, is being surprisingly undiligent these days.

Kougra: Are we paying her to read?

Hey now, I’m sure it’s to all in the name of better butlering.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-23 10_07_02 AM

Who am I to say where June gets her abilities from?

Screenshot-1219

Idk though, something’s up with her. Ever since Tonu breached the social barrier, she’s been doing a lot of loitering. Almost like she lives here or something.

…Okay so she IS technically a live-in butler and that’s Kougra sleeping in her bed, but I’m still sus.

Screenshot-1225

Pete: Toenail, you borked the bortler.

Tonu: Peanuts.

Remind me not to let these two be in a picture together again.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-23 11_53_33 AM

Oh, great. As if Kiko weren’t enough.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-24 10_15_05 AM

Mayday, mayday! NOW he wants to make sense? I don’t like it.

Screenshot-1227

That’s it. Deep breaths. Resist the call of rationality.

Tonu: I feel…

Yes?

Tonu: …potato.

Crisis averted.

Screenshot-1214

These two, on the other hand, are an entirely different type of crisis that may not be possible to avert.

Kiko: So Captain, when are we getting out of this one-fish pond?

Kau: There’s only one fish in this pond?

Kiko: Yikes. That went right over your head, didn’t it?

Screenshot-1209

Kiko: Well hello my child.

Kau: No fair, now there’s nothing left for me to catch!

Screenshot-1222

It’s not Kau’s fault his sisters ate his brain in the womb.

Kyrii: Aaaaaand with one last tap, I’ve cured cancer.

Whoa, really?!

Kyrii: Yep. All Cancers are henceforth cancelled. Geminis, you’re next.

Screenshot-1228

Although really, it’s a wonder there are any smarts left in the gene pool.

Siesta: You’re mean. I’m a robot genius.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-23 10_25_53 AM

I was pretty sure we already did this (and unequipped it shortly thereafter) but who am I to have any idea what the heck is going on?

Screenshot-1230

Siesta: Yes! Now I can put this in Dudley and he will beat up everyone who has ever wronged me!

I don’t think you understand how evil works.

Screenshot-1235

Siesta: Okay, Dudley. I’m going to make this real simple for you. Kill Master’s Enemies.

Screenshot-1239

Dudley: Kill… Master…

Siesta: That’s righ— wait, please finish that sentence.

Screenshot-1240

Dudley: KILL MASTER!

Siesta: I should’ve known three words were too many…

Screenshot-1243

Dudley: Master?

Siesta: Just leave me…

Screenshot-1253

But for now, back to The Mysterious Case of the Borked BortlerTM. What happened to you, June?!?

Imposter: Oh, I’m not June. I’m Courtney.

Excuse me? What the fuck is a Courtney?

Imposter: Nice to meet you, too.

Screenshot-1252

Siesta: WHOA. Hold up. What happened to June? Bring back June! We NEED June!

Dudley: Kill June!

Siesta: Dudley no.

Courtney: Don’t worry, guys. I’ll be twice the butler June ever was. Starting with throwing away all your dumb rugs. Yay!

Screenshot-1264

Strictly speaking, June is not entirely “missing.” She is here. On our couch. Invited over by one teenage admirer, perhaps?

June: So Tonu, what did you want to talk to me about?

Tonu: A piece of cake.

June: Oh. Um, okay.

Screenshot-1266

Dude, how can you not realize he has the hots for you?

June: He… pardon??

Tonu: A passionate evening approaches at high velocity!

June: Oh, goodness. If you’ll excuse me for just a moment.

Screenshot-1267

Siesta: There you are, June! Oh, thank goodness! I need you to control my evil robot and also do my taxes and raise my children. June? June? Why aren’t you answering me?

Screenshot-1268

Siesta: JUNE?!

And with that, the world’s best butler really is gone. </3

Screenshot-1257

Unlike this guy, who’s somehow still kicking and by kicking I mean seriously pushing his luck with the life-death border and apparently not giving a shit about it.

Dusty: My fun bar is in the red!

A likely story.

Screenshot-1259

Ixi: I don’t have a fun bar anymore. They don’t abide such frivolities at Smuggsworth.

That’s right, our boarding school gal has returned to us a whole new person.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-24 1_11_04 PM

Literally—the game processes her and her former self as separate entities.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-24 1_12_14 PM

She’s also tasted life beyond these walls and wants nothing more than to gtfo again as soon as possible. I feel that so hard.

Screenshot-1280

Siesta: Gosh dang it, she’s back already? I thought I’d gotten rid of her for good.

I mean it was genuinely worth a try, given the way boarding school has typically held kids hostage in my game. But nope—Siesta 2.0 is back in the building, and she’s even MORE better than you!

Siesta: *sobs*

Screenshot-1270

Here is Dusty, off to work. I’m hoping this shot was taken in anticipation of him reaching that final promotion. Please.

Dusty: Idk, I’m thinking about throwing a chance card. Or maybe dying on lunch break.

Asdlfikjaoeitjadlkfflgkllkll I might not even care at this point.

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-24 10_18_38 AM

At this rate, I swear his children are bound to top their careers before he does. Between Acara the businesswoman, Ixi the private school graduate, Kyrii the rocket scientist, and Kiko the evil prodigy, this generation is set to take over the world.

Screenshot-1272

Pete: So prond of Koko!

Kiko: Thanks, Pete! Maybe I’ll run for president one day. You know, if I feel like it.

Ixi: Excuse me, but have you forgotten this family already has a budding politician? Also, Peter, I am your favourite.

Tonu: Lonely Henry is good for you!

Ixi: Thank you, Tonu. I appreciate the support.

Screenshot-1275

All that work talk just in time—it’s Acara’s first day at the salt mine!

Acara: I don’t wanna go.

False. You are a Workaholic.

Acara: Yeah, but if I spend all day in a rabbithole, the readers are gonna forget how cool I am.

*crickets*

Screenshot-1279

Acara: Fine. I see how it is.

She can’t resist the call of the stapler.

(Also, note ANOTHER new butler in the background who is neither Courtney nor June.)

Screenshot-1273

Can you tell Lev’s stupid fairy bloodline (and Skydancer’s) have taken over this town? It’s also scary how many of them work in politics, military, and law enforcement.

Barefoot Bro: All cops are clowns.

Cop: Alrighty, good luck catching that shoe burglar on your own then.

Screenshot-1282

Speaking of clowns…

Dusty: I have a surprise for you.

What is it?!? What’s that in your hand?!

Screenshot-1283

Dusty: A sunbrella!

YOU USELESS MOTHERFUCKING POTATO SACK, I WILL END YOU MYSELF, I—

The Sims™ 3 Into the Future 2018-07-23 12_09_48 PM

Dusty: I got it as a gift with this promotion.

OMFG YOU FOOL

Screenshot-1285

Dusty: Now all the soldiers will have to seduce me to get promotions!

Like I said, there is no honour in this at all.

Screenshot-1287

Pharaoh: I will not be seducing that, thank you very much.

For several good reasons—this is Trance and Delilah’s daughter Pharaoh, all grown up! She’s undoubtedly way too capable (and way too proud) to stoop that low.

Also, I’m letting Dusty attend exactly ONE day of work as an astronaut and then he’s retiring.

Screenshot-1301

Kiko: Alright, Mom! No more torrid affairs for Dad! Gimme some skin!

Siesta: Yeah! Woooooo!

Screenshot-1303

Siesta: Psych! No skin for you!

Kiko: What?

Screenshot-1304

Siesta: What are you gonna do about it, punk?

Screenshot-1299

Kiko: What the hell, Mom? I’m literally your daughter!

Siesta: Unfortunately.

Screenshot-1297

Kiko: You know what? No. I tried with you, but I’m done. This is my villain origin story.

Siesta: A high-five?

Kiko: Don’t belittle me! I’m going dark. Real dark. And you are officially my nemesis.

Siesta: Gosh dang it.

Screenshot-1315

Well, that happened, but in lighter news…

Dusty: Hey Patty, thank you so much for carrying my job performance through the entirety of my career!

Patty: No need to thank me.

Screenshot-1309

Dusty: Well, I’m glad we can part on good terms, then!

Patty: Part?

Dusty: Well yeah, I’m an astronaut now. I don’t need any more promotions.

Screenshot-1310

Patty: You were USING me?!?

Dusty: Oh boy, I thought we were on the same page…

Screenshot-1312

Patty: You are a sham of a man, Dusty Langurd. I have no choice but to dedicate the rest of my life to the destruction of your family!

Dusty: Not this again…

Screenshot-1318

Siesta: So, how’d it go?

Dusty: *gulps* Uh, great. Isn’t that right, Patty?

Patty: I’ll just be in my house across the street. Watching. Forever.

Screenshot-1328

Meanwhile, inside…

Kyrii: Did you see that trainwreck out front?

Kiko: I know right? How are we descended from such tools?

Screenshot-1325

Kyrii: Oh, we literally are. Didn’t Mom tell you about our great-great-great-great-great grandfather?

Kiko: Uh, Mom and I aren’t exactly on speaking terms.

Screenshot-1327

Kyrii: You know, if we really wanted to disgrace the family name, I have a thought…

Kiko: Lay it on me.

Screenshot-1329

*hushed conversation*

Screenshot-1324

Kyrii: So yeah, just think about it.

Kiko: Girl, you really are a genius.

Still not much to say besides omg this is a freaking SLOG. Thanks for sticking with me, and Happy Simming!

    • Sure! There’s a lot of CC build/buy stuff in the newer house especially, and I’ll warn you that the routing isn’t always the smoothest – but if you’re willing to deal with that then by all means! I’ll boot up my game sometime in the next week and try to get some stuff uploaded. 🙂
