4.7: Graveyard Slumber


Hey guys, I’m back! I can’t believe it’s been three months!!! I’m so sorry for the unexplained wait. Truthfully, I’ve been ready to write this for a very long time now, but I lost the notes I took for this chapter and I’ve been trying to find them. I gave up, meaning they’ll probably turn up now that I’m finally giving in and writing this sucker. I have four more days of school after this, and one final, and then I’m done with my first semester of college! Yay! I hope I can get myself around to uploading a few more chapters during my month off of school, but we’ll see how lazy I get, ne?

In the last chapter, we had several more birthdays. Rachelle grew into an elder, Azurill into a YA, and Camerupt became a child. Nothing else significant happened. What shenanigans will occur today? Let’s find out!

But first, one little announcement.


Promotion for Tari! She’s moving up very quickly in her career and I’m so proud of my first Kanto heiress, even if I don’t give her as much screentime as she deserves.


We start our chapter with our two favorite Cerulean spouses having a nice little chat.

Jamie: I am such a better spouse than you. I mean, look at me. I put out fires for a living. All you do is start them. In the snow.

Rachelle: Did you say something, dear? That portrait over there was just telling me the funniest story…

She’s going a bit senile in her old age.


Ri likes to literally throw herself into her work in her attempt to be the youngest Kanto ever to max a skill.


I bought a telescope for little miss evil, here. I thought it’d be a nice break from sitting around at a chess table all day. I don’t think you’re gonna see anything in broad daylight though, hun.

Deoxys: I may not see starts, but there’s some pretty funky stuff going on in our neighbors’ bedroom window right now…

…Perhaps a confiscation is in order?


I don’t think I trust old lady Shelley with magic…just look at that crazy expression on her face…

Rachelle: Bippity Boppity Boo!

I’ll just leave you to it then…


The kids wanted a sleepover party, so I let Tepig do the honors of inviting every kid and teen in the neighborhood since he’s having a birthday tomorrow morning!

Tepig: No, you don’t know me. But I’m throwing a cray cray party tonight and you should totally come. The voice in my head told me it’s gonna be legit!


Poor Ledyba isn’t quite old enough to party yet, but I don’t think she minds too much.

Ledyba: I shall play for them my magical tunes of whimsy 😀


Rachelle: And that’s why I never fly in an airplane. Remember that while you throw your crazy party tonight, kiddo. We wouldn’t want any accidents.

Tepig: This lady’s even more cray than my party’s gonna be…


You might wanna come inside, Charmie. The guests are about to start flooding in.

Charmander: Just let me put the finishing touches on my latest masterpiece and I’ll be right in.


This is where my notes would’ve come in handy. I had all their names written down so this section wouldn’t have been a bunch of “green girl” or “blue boy.” Unfortunately…

Green Girl was the first to arrive to the party.

Green Girl: I came for sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. You seem to be lacking in all these departments.


She was followed closely by Blue Girl, who is by far my favorite. She’s too cute and one of my spares is definitely marrying her ❤

Blue Girl: I’m down with that.


Purple Boy has potential. At least he has the right skin color for next generation.

Purple Boy: I live to please.


Herbert Van Gold showed up. Without his son…this was supposed to be an opportunity for Deo to meet her possible future husband!

Herbert: I had to make sure this place was suitable for my dear son.

You’ve already been here, smarty pants. You know it’s fine!

Blue Girl: That crazy little Kanto boy is soooo cute! I like my men a little insane in the brain. *swoon swoon*


I’ll call this one Bun Girl.

Bun Girl: I resent that. I’m more than just my hairdo!


More people arrive, including potentially an alien. And do my eyes deceive me? It’s Kurtis!!! *swoon swoon*

Charmander: I’m done inventing now. What’d I miss?


Green Girl: You know what you are, kid? A broken umbrella! A struggling artist! A revolutionary! I read this book once, and this other kid was just like you and he turned out a hunk, so I know you’re gonna turn out a hunk too!

Tepig: Why are all these older women hitting on me?…

Herbert: Get used to it, kid. They just don’t understand that we’re not interested in their kind…


Rachelle: What have YOU to say on broken umbrellas, boy?

Purple Boy: Umm…I just came in here for food…

Shelley, stop scaring our guests!


Bun Girl: Oh…you just went there…

Curly Hair: Went where? Wonderland? I’ve been there, it’s quite peculiar. Care to go together sometime?

Bun Girl: *hate hate hate*


Hey, it’s a Kanto spare offspring! This is Derik, the child of Phione and Shinx.

Derik: You mean I could’ve been living here? I was born in the wrong branch of this family…what a rip off…


Why you no go inside house, Kurtis?

Kurtis: Have you seen all those children in there? I’d rather not risk getting infected by their grubby little child hands…

Well that’s certainly a trait we haven’t had in this legacy. What an interesting legacy father you’d make…

Kurtis: …definitely never stepping foot inside that house…


Herbert: This is a lovely house you have, ma’am. My son will move in posthaste. Your Simmer will be delighted, I’m sure.

Rachelle: Meh. I’ve seen hotter ghost babes.


Poor Suzanna, the Kyovan offspring, just missed getting invited to the party. She aged up right after it started.


The children are having so much fun, see? Standing. Doing nothing. Fun times.

Derik and Curly Hair: We are so happy to be here 😀

Alien Kid: I want my mommy!!!

At least some of us are having fun.


Charmander: Baby, you shine brighter than a shooting star.

Blue Girl: Oh really?…


Blue Girl: Cause, you know, I’m really into all that astrology stuff…

Charmander: You mean astronomy, right?

Blue Girl: Right, right. And my horoscope readings said I’d find a boy who’s really into constellations and space and stuff and that I’d marry that boy. And since you compared me to a star, that must be you. Right?

Charmander: Ummm….yes?

Looks like Charmie found himself a girlfriend ^.^


Charmie’s not the only one getting his groove on though.

Camerupt: Baby, this party is garbage. What do you say we blow this popsicle stand and find where the real action is.

Curly Hair: I beg your pardon?


Camerupt: I got Ice Capades. I know a guy.

What a heartthrob. Who could refuse such an offer?


Not like Deo’s having much more luck in love than her cousin.

Kurtis: Hello, little boy. Could you please leave me the hell alone? I’m not coming inside with you, if that’s what you’re thinking.

Deoxys: Oh my plumbob, it’s him…he’s even more handsome than I pictured…but he called me a boy…I’ll get him for that when we’re married, mark my words! He’ll pay…mwahahaha!!!

Kurtis: Could you stop evilly laughing to yourself? It’s kinda creeping me out…


After all the excitement of the day, the children decide to settle down and get some well deserved rest in the most comfortable place you could find.


In the morning, despite standing around for hours doing nothing but listening to the Kantos’ crazy ranting, the guests left the party feeling very fulfilled. I’d consider that a success!

But wait…there’s more!




Although the family really couldn’t be bothered to care. Except perpetually happy Charmie.

Charmander: Yay! You go, cousin!


Tepig: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons in a land apart. Or to fix my fingers, that’d be nice too.


Woah. Someone’s giving Steelix and Squirtle a run for their money for the most attractive Kanto award. This handsome devil rolled bookworm.

Tepig: Why no dragons? 😦


Cammy was not thrilled by his brother’s transformation.

Camerupt: He’s gonna steal all my ladies!

Somehow, I don’t think that’ll be an issue.


I decided to cheer the poor kid up anyways.

Paras: Greetings world and all who inhabit it. I wish to rule you!


Camerupt: Welcome to the world, Paras! First thing you’ve gotta learn is that red is the primary color here. Not only is it the color of my generation, but it’s the color of my burning love for you and all the other ladies of the world.

Paras: First thing to dominate…this womanizer.


Tepig: And y’all think I’m the crazy one…


Before we close this chapter, here are a few toddlers to introduce you to. This Kyovan twin is Ginger.


And this one is Judy. They have slightly different skin tones, but otherwise they’re clones of each other. And of Kyo-kun.


Finally, this is Phione’s third child, Robyn. She’s properly adorable and my favorite of the Cerulean spares’ offspring so far.

Welp, that’s all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed this diversion from the typical structure of “Kantos doing nothing” that I usually present. I thought it’d be fun to get to know some of the neighborhood kids a little more, seeing as how some of them might marry spares someday. Anyways, thanks for reading and I hope to see you again soon in a new chapter! If I don’t, then I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! And as always, happy Simming!
