I have now made it through three weeks of college! Rejoice! I haven’t been too overloaded with work yet, but we’ll see what happens. In the last chapter, we had four birthdays: Jamie aged into an elder, Charmander and Deoxys became children, and Camerupt grew into a toddler. Rachelle gave birth to baby Ledyba, another potential heiress, and Altaria made it halfway to her LTW. Wow, things actually happened last chapter. Will anything significant occur today? Let’s jump right in and find out!
Rachelle: Well this is awkward.
Rachelle: I’ll just pit it out real quick and nobody will notice.
Too late, someone noticed.
Altaria: What in the world is going on?!
Shelley was playing with magic and somehow set the graveyard on fire.
Altaria: Well put it out, for goodness sake!
We’re trying our best! Just calm down!
Jamie: Amateurs. All of you.
Talk about taking this lying down…honestly, cowardly Sims…
Even the kids ended up outside to marvel at the disaster.
Deoxys: How is a girl supposed to sleep at night knowing the ground could spontaneously combust at any moment?
Finally, the fire was tamed.
Deoxys: Man, scary things are exhausting…
Tepig: Aunt Shelley, you ruin everything.
Jamie: I could’ve had that fire within minutes.
Rachelle: Everybody’s a critic…
Azurill: Don’t worry everyone, I took it upon myself to stay inside our warm, safe house to protect the infant from harm.
How noble of you.
Not like Charmie did much to help either.
Charmander: I’m raising my snowman army to crush the fire with their bodies of frozen water.
Right. Of course. How could I possibly think anything different?
Rachelle: Now that that fiasco is over with, back to practicing!
I don’t think so. Get back inside before you freeze to death or set something on fire again.
All the children flocked to their favorite skill-building activities like good legacy Sims.
Azurill’s already chained to the chemistry table most of the time, but Deo is focusing on logic too, so I thought I’d give her a chance.
I don’t know how Charmie isn’t freezing to death in just his everyday clothing, but I’m not complaining. I haven’t had an inventor Sim since the fourth generation of my first legacy, so this is still a bit of a novelty for me. Forgive me if I focus on it too much.
Ri still hates Shelley.
Azurill: I ought to push you right off the nearest bridge, you menace!
Rachelle: I’d like to see you try, hun.
Deoxys: I just love the feeling of charred skin 😀
Tepig: Mother, you look kind of crazy. I, a fellow insane Sim, implore you to relieve your stress through painting. Or just judging other people’s paintings. That usually works too. But seriously, you look really bonkers right now.
Altaria: ~eye twitch~ You think so?
Joe: Strange. I don’t usually start glowing after a chess match…
Joe: Now I can see right through my hand. How peculiar.
Oh no, Joey! D:
Altaria: Daddy, no!
Tepig: Great. Now mom’s gonna be even more crazy…
Grim: Better make this quick. Squirtle and I are taking a vacay on the beach of Sunlit Tides.
Grim: Joe Kanto, will you accept your death and join me in the afterlife for as long as your soul shall live?
Joe: I will.
Grim: Great. Let’s get going. I think your husband is dying to see you. No pun intended.
Deoxys: Grandpa, no! How is a small, evil child meant to deal with death?
Charmander: I’m sensing a disturbance under our bunkbead.
Charmander: Ugghh, it’s just the forces of darkness here to take away my grandpa’s soul. How inconvenient.
I feel bad that I haven’t been paying much attention to Joe since we’ve brought him into the legacy house. He was a very motivated Sim and continued to climb his way up the medical career until his death. He had almost maxed his logic skill, and probably would have if I had paid more attention to what he was doing. Joey Kanto passed away at 98 days old, officially leaving the legacy in the hands of Cerulean generation. You will be missed, Joey. Have fun catching up with Klinky in the afterlife!
Rachelle: Oh darn. The butler died. Whatever shall I do without those meals on a silver platter?
That “butler” was your father-in-law. And he never served you any food, on a platter or otherwise.
Rachelle: I was making a joke, doll. Don’t ruin it.
Jamie is quick to offer her condolences.
Apparently Tepig didn’t take his grandfather’s death too hard. They barely interacted anyways.
Tepig: My servants! A new king will soon rise from the ashes! I promise to be a fair and just ruler so long as you do everything I say!
Poor, orphaned Ri throws herself into childcare.
Charmander: Video games suck! They’re for lazy people who don’t have anything better to do with their lives.
Deoxys: Okay…just antagonize me for no good reason, why don’t you…
Tarmie enjoys the stars together after the rough day they’ve had.
Jamie: No, no. No kisses.
Jamie: I’m just too upset about your father’s death to show affection!
Altaria: You’ve gotta be kidding me…
Hey, didn’t you just yell at your sister about hating video games?
Charmander: Yeah, arcade games. Console games are a whole different story. Aww yeah, Wario wins!
Mailman: Stupid mail! Stupid Kantos, always paying their stupid bills on time! Stupid government job! I hate my life!!!
Mailman: Take THAT, you obnoxious piece of paper!
Tepig: You’ll regret that, hatted man…mark my words…
Deoxys: Do I really have to go to school? Can’t I just be home schooled? Shouldn’t evil such as myself be contained and deprived of sunlight and social interaction? I should just be a shut-in, right?
Doe’s had some troubles. It’s no wonder she doesn’t want to go. But alas, home schooling never works very well for me so public school it is.
On a more positive note, Ledyba grew up into a toddler, and boy is she a cutie!
She makes quick friends with her (matching!) IF, Solrock.
Camerupt: Thank you, potty, for allowing me to use you and leave. Not everything would be that understanding. Like, my doll is constantly making me play with her, build a relationship. I can’t be tied down like that, man! Do you know how many toys we have in this house? Like, a bajillion! I can’t only play with one!
Paras: Play with me or I’ll keep glitching you through the wall.
Camerupt: Yes, ma’am!
Rachelle: I’d sooner dig my own brains out with a trowel than teach this little brat to speak…
Ledyba: Mummy, what’s that bubble thing above your head?
New maid! She looks really pretty in this shot, but I took her into CAS and her nose is actually kind of horrifying…def not spouse material…
Not that we really need a maid with Jamie cleaning everything up herself.
Charmander: Who needs math homework anyways? When am I ever gonna use numbers for inventing?
Camerupt: Hey cuz, since we’re the youngest, we should form an alliance.
Ledyba: What’s that mean, Cam?
Camerupt: It means we promise to be friends and stick together no matter what.
Ledyba: Awesome! Let’s do it!
And so the first friendship of the generation was struck.
Altaria: Phio, you are so lucky you got to move out of this hell hole. Our dad just died, that crazy witch big brother married nearly burned the graveyard down, and the kids are crazy…oh, your kids are perfect angels and your husband is a joy? Well woop-de-friggen-doo.
Speaking of Phione’s kids…
They just had birthdays! This is Derik, the eldest. His father was Shinx.
And this is Torey. His father is Phio’s husband, Robi Hozman.
Charmie never came home from school. I guess he’s been hanging around in the playground ever since he finished his homework.
Charmander: I’m having an adventure! It’s not every day I get to actually leave the house!
Hey now, you make me sound like a cruel dictator…
Charmander: Mostly cause you are.
Deoxys: It’s true. I mean, sending me to a place where I’m constantly teased? It’s like you’re punishing me for evil deeds I haven’t even done yet. Plus, why do I have to do more work outside of school? It’s ridiculous! I’m going on strike!
Well fine. If you two hate me so much, I’ll just leave. That’s it for this chapter, guys. I’ll be back with more when these Sims decide to end their strike. Hope you all had a great Labor Day today, and as always, happy Simming!
