6.2: Grim, Grinning Ghosts

Hello friends! Last time on the Kanto Legacy, both Deerling and Starmie had birthdays, ghost-baby Carnivine was born, and Phillip maxed the painting skill.

As soon as I started up the game, this random bus was just sitting outside our house. It’s, like, 3 AM dude. What are you doing?

Bus Driver: I thought I’d be extra on-time to pick your teenagers  up for school today.

Uhuh…

Screenshot-11

Is that a human Em I see? Yeah, I thought I’d give DebugEnabler’s deghostify option a try at long last. It seems to be the popular thing now, and I do like getting to see my Sims’ genetics on a regular basis now. I can change it back later if you guys want.

Missingno: Em sees that his wittle nooboo is still a ghosty. What’s up with that?

Since you can’t see genetics on infants, I decided to leave Carnie as is until he ages up.

Screenshot-12

I almost forgot what Phil looks like.

Phillip: Greetings, children.

Lavender Kids: Whatever.

Phillip: I feel so loved 🙂

Screenshot-13

Leds doesn’t seem deterred by her husband’s sudden change in appearance.

Screenshot-14

I’ll just leave them alone to be lovey-dovey.

Screenshot-15

Starmie has developed a new love of soap operas.

Starmie: They make my life look normal in comparison.

Screenshot-16

Deerling: I. WANT. FOOD.

Ledyba: What a lovely, glowing baby. Let me stand here and stare at it for eternity.

Deerling: FEED ME!

Ledyba: Quiet, kid. I’m staring at a ghost child.

Screenshot-17

Missingno: Em doesn’t know about this whole ‘deghostify’ thing…the viewers shouldn’t have to see Em’s gross workout faces…

Oh honey. You’re pretty no matter what silly faces you make.

Screenshot-18

Ari seems to be the only kid that Phil has a good relationship with. They hang around outside and play ball together until school starts.

Screenshot-19

Since Ling’s finished her three skills, it’s TSAL time in the library. Maybe it’s just paranoia talking, but I snatched the books back up as soon as she was finished with them so other Sims didn’t steal our stuff. Not sure if that’s a thing that actually happens.

Screenshot-20

Grandma Leds is forced to come along, but she gets to skill handiness while she’s here.

Ledyba: Joy.

Screenshot-21

What’s this? Phil and Chandra not yelling at each other?

Phillip: Galaga is the best.

Chandra: I concur.

I guess video games do bring people together.

Screenshot-22

Dog: Away with you, heathen! Back to the cave with the rest of your bats!

Ledyba: You almost done, kid? I’m getting sick of all these people.

Deerling: Don’t rush me, gramma! I’m going as fast as I can!

Which is pretty darn fast, mind you.

Screenshot-23

These guys over here are having some kind of a book club. Why wasn’t I invited? D:

Screenshot-24

Phil has been extremely productive since he’s been set on mostly free will.

Phillip: Hmmm, how to cause mass hysteria on the internet… ‘YOI is an abomination and no one should watch it ever. Also, Victuuri sucks.’ Yeah. That’ll do it.

You’re so mature, Phil. (Please note that his trolling does not reflect my actual feelings on the subject.)

Screenshot-25

Maid: These rich bastards will never see it coming when I swipe all their fancy stuff from right under their noses!

Evil maid. That’s a new one.

Screenshot-26

I really shouldn’t have given this family video games. They don’t do any of the other fun stuff in the house.

Altaria: Don’t you dare take them from me. I’m part of the in-crowd of online gaming now. Makes me feel young and hip.

Screenshot-27

Birthday time! It’s almost time for little Ari to leave the nest.

Phillip: HAHAHA, you suck!

Arbok: Thanks dad. Love you too.

Screenshot-28

Phillip: Look at that loser, blowing out those candles.

Ledyba: You go son!

Missingno: I think here looks like a good place to hover.

Altaria: I’m too old for this shit.

Screenshot-29

Arbok: Time to get the hell out of here.

Screenshot-31

He’s so handsome! He rolled easily impressed as his final trait, adding to loves the outdoors, virtuoso, computer whiz, and party animal. He’s an Aquarius who likes country music, stu surprise, and hot pink. He wants to be a hit movie composer.

Screenshot-32

Ling is happy for the distraction. She gets to hang out with Bell instead of other Sims.

Deerling: She understands me better than anybody else. Right Bell?

Bell: ……

Deerling: She says yes.

Screenshot-33

Ari gets himself hooked up with a gig in music.

Screenshot-34

He then invites Morrigan over to commence the wooing.

Morrigan: Can we hurry this along? I think I’ve got a bug bite…

Since we waited until after school for the birthday shindig, it’s getting rather late now.

Screenshot-35

She apparently has another boyfriend. We quickly disposed of that little issue.

Arbok: Break up with that asshole?

Morrigan: Kay.

Screenshot-36

Arbok: Since it’s late, how about you stay over? We can resume the romance in the morning.

Morrigan: I’d love to.

Screenshot-37

This one looks possessed half the time, with her super blue eyes rolled back in her head like that.

Starmie: It’s this baby. It’s doing things to me.

I highly doubt the infant is messing with your head, but okay Star. You keep thinking that.

Promotion 1

Good job, Em!

Screenshot-38

Missingno: Em’s ready, promotion. Em’s ready, promotion.

Screenshot-39

Ah, there’s that antagonism.

Phillip: I don’t think you’re smart enough for my son. I bet you don’t even have half a brain in that fairy skull of yours.

Chandra: Look dude, I already live here and I’ve given this legacy two kids. You’re getting chucked out of your own house as soon as my babies are old enough. You can insult me as much as you want, but who’s really the loser in this scenario?

Screenshot-40

So, Starmie’s the only one who’s used the raft so far because she snagged it! I had it sitting by the side of the pool, and she stashed it in her inventory after the first time she used it!

Starmie: You can’t actually expect a classy girl like me to touch the water, right? I’d get wet.

Perish the though.

Screenshot-42

Birthday for Carnie! (Still debating that nickname…) He has the exact opposite genetics of his sister. His eyes, mouth, and face shape are all Chandra, and the nose is Em. He’s super cute too!

Carnivine: I try my best ^.^

After seeing his genetics, I’ve decided that two kids is enough for the generation. I know, I know. That’s so unlike me. Unless Em and Chandra both roll the wish for another one, which is highly unlikely seeing as neither of them even roll wishes for their current kids, Ling and Carnie are it for us!

Screenshot-43

Mori’s up and at ’em. And rejecting flirts already.

Arbok: Can I call you late-

Morrigan: No.

Phillip: Ooohhh, rejected!

Arbok: Shut up, dad…

Screenshot-46

He’s punished for his transgressions by being put on toddler teaching duties.

Phillip: Good thing you’re not a vampire, kiddo. Or you’d be frying up like eggs right now. Can you say eggs?

Carnivine: That was such disturbing imagery that I refuse to participate in this activity any longer.

Clearly the best person for this job.

Screenshot-45

Some friendly and funny interactions later…

Screenshot-47

Yes! Flirt accepted.

Arbok: I’m not a very good cook, but I’ll bring you breakfast in bed whenever you want, babe.

Morrigan: How sweet 🙂

Screenshot-49

Here’s a better picture of adult Ari. He really is very pretty.

Screenshot-50

Maid: Looks like they’re distracted. Time to strike.

Rest assured, Evil Maid didn’t try anything. Not yet at least…

Screenshot-51

Ledyba: The checkered flag’s coming up, you old hag. You’re so not pulling off this win.

Altaria: We’ll just see about that, you brat.

Screenshot-52

Ledyba: No way! Ugghhh!

Altaria: Haha, this is why nobody messes with Tari! You owe me a week of dishes!

Screenshot-54

Starmie decides to join them. Look at our three generations of Kanto women, getting along.

Starmie: You’re all rubbish!

Altaria: Yeah yeah, been through this already. Prepare to lose.

Screenshot-53

Ari has to go to work, so we’ll have to finish with the spouse-wooing on his day off tomorrow. Hopefully she stays until he comes home.

Screenshot-56

Oh boy…

Altaria: This’ll be good.

Ledyba: So you think you can date my son, do you? Well, watch this!

Screenshot-58

Morrigan: Oh goodness….

Screenshot-59

Ledyba: That’s right. Be spooked.

Altaria: I’m feeling a bit spooked myself.

Screenshot-60

Altaria: Oh wait. It’s just death.

Ledyba: ….crap.

Starmie: Great job, mother. Apparently you can kill people without chess tables too.

Screenshot-61

Missingno: Em’s death senses are tingling….Auntie Tari?….

Just continue caring for your child please, Em. She’s smelly and hungry.

Screenshot-62

Grim: Heya, Kantos. Long time, no see. Wow, digging the new place. 

Hi, Grim. Good to see you again.

Screenshot-63

Ledyba: I can’t believe I killed Auntie Tari….

Starmie: I can’t mourn properly because mother is in the way!

Screenshot-64

Morrigan: This…is super uncomfortable…

Ledyba: You. This is your fault.

Screenshot-65

I guess Grimmy had places to be, because Tari didn’t get a proper goodbye and he didn’t stick around.

Anyways, Altaria Kanto passed away at 108 days old. She wasn’t the longest lived Kanto, but she seemed to be around for a long time. She reared three children of her own and pretty much raised her dead brother’s three kids as well, all while reaching her LTW and then going on to top the political career. I was a little sad to see her go and she will be missed, but she lived a good, long life so it really was her time. She’ll be moved to either a family graveyard or the portrait room downstairs, depending on which I decide to do.

Screenshot-66

Time to moodlet manage everyone so they’re not all whiny crybabies for the next two days.

Screenshot-68

It worked on everyone but poor Chandra.

Screenshot-69

Afterwards, Leds takes some comfort in the arms of her husband.

Screenshot-71

I’m glad the kids were both still toddlers. They can live on in bliss.

Carnivine: This music stuff is kinda fun 😀

Screenshot-72

After Chandra gets herself sorted out, she comforts her husband too.

Missingno: Em just loved Auntie Tari so much…

Chandra: I know, baby. It’ll be okay.

He was honestly the most broken up about this.

Screenshot-75

Ari’s quick to ask Mori to stay over again as soon as he gets home. Hopefully we can wrap up the romance tomorrow and send these two on their way.

Screenshot-76

Mori wakes up in the morning to Chandra talking to her about flowers.

Chandra: Personally, I like daisies. But tiger lilies are pretty too. Your thoughts?

Morrigan: If Ari wasn’t such a work of art, I so wouldn’t put up with this…

Screenshot-77

Despite all the chaos, we got these two going steady.

Screenshot-78

Followed by the logical conclusion.

Alchemy Get

Compared to the other skills, this was underwhelming at best.

Screenshot-79

Good job, girl. I think she’s gonna work on painting next so she can do heir portraits when Phil leaves, but she has rolled the wish to make 15 elixirs so she might be chained to the alchemy station a while longer.

Screenshot-80

I wanted to assure babies out of these two in case SP decides to break them up.

Screenshot-82

It’s birthday time for Ling! Time sure flies, doesn’t it?

Phillip: Haha, that stupid baby can’t even get to the cake by herself!

Ledyba: Shut up, Phil.

Screenshot-83

Ari and Mori sneak away from the celebrations to have one of their own.

Screenshot-85

She’s still a cutie, if maybe a little emo-looking now. She rolled over-emotional, adding to absent minded and eccentric.

Screenshot-86

Goodbye Ari! We’ll miss you lots!

Arbok: Finally out of this plumbob-forsaken house…

That’s all I have for this chapter, guys! Hope you all have a fantastic day. Happy Simming!

  1. I love doing the TSAL in the library, they get through it so quick. I haven’t done it in my ISBI though just too much else for the TH to do. In my experience if I don’t put the books back into the sims inventory they will get shelved by some well meaning sim.
    So sad the Altaria is gone. RIP. On the bright side the kids are super cute ❤ As are Arbok and Morrigan. ❤

  2. Ooh, I completely forgot that Phillip had purple skin. He was a fitting person to father the Lavender generation!

    Like TinyPiglet, I love doing TSAL in the library. I’ve never had the books get shelved while I’m there (my townies are pigs who leave books everywhere), but always make sure I pick them up – because if you leave the lot they will be put away.

    Dayum, Arbok is hawt! Love that goatee from Uni, it’s the facial hair I use most often on my simmies.
