Silence Serenity: TS2 BACC MONTH III.X

Hello everyone and welcome to my TS2 BACC. Last time we were here, we went over the first half of month three, and this is the second half!  Though that’s hard to tell since I picked a poor way to represent it in Roman numerals.  Awkward.  Well, let’s move on quickly then.

snapshot_4222f9b8_8224211d

So we start off in Orlando and Julia’s household, where stupid Orlando fails to get aspiration points despite being a Family Sim, because this is just a generation of failed Family Sims.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a2242161

Which is just too bad, since Julia is pregnant again.

“Gosh, sex once again led to pregnancy?!  What a shock!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_622421a2

And just in time to make my life slightly less hellish, Andy grows up into a boy!  Which apparently leaves Orlando thoughtless, though he seems a bit relieved to me.

“Daddy, why is there paneling in the bedroom?”

snapshot_4222f9b8_6224226d

So Orlando’s interest is in Food, which means he is an excellent cook, and an excellent eater.  As you can see, this is not necessarily a good combination.

snapshot_4222f9b8_02242297

But at least he isn’t slamming the kids into the walls.

Though the weird part is Andy getting aspiration points for it.

“AUGH MY LEGS ARE CRUMBLING AND THE PAIN IS OVERWHELMING, MORE!”

Freak.

snapshot_4222f9b8_62242334

“You don’t say, my wife is outside introducing my son to BDSM?  Your spying on me makes me like you more.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_62242591

Okay mister, Julia’s turn-on isn’t chubbiness, so work that food off.

snapshot_4222f9b8_c22425d0

Wow my picture-taking was bad for this house.  Don’t mind that they apparently have no roof, or ceiling, or anything.  Maybe that’s what Andy’s homework is about.

“Daddy, what is architecture?”

“A desperate necessity for this house.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_e2242669

“Ew, I can’t believe my CHILD was here!”

Julia might be getting a bit of postpartum.

snapshot_4222f9b8_22242682

“Wait… Who is this?  I have a child?  A husband?!”

Postpartum dementia.

snapshot_4222f9b8_422426ac

“Yes!  My husband touched this last!  I got it!”

I would sure hope so, considering he’s right there.

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22426d6

Don’t be fooled by her problems, though; as you can see, she is a perfectly happy Sim.

snapshot_4222f9b8_2224278f

Well, she was.

snapshot_4222f9b8_c22427b3

And out pops another baby!  Brown hair, brown eyes again, ugh.  This guy is named Jeffrey.

Orlando really isn’t doing well as a Family Sim at all, is he?  Not a point for his new child.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a224280e

Not that that stops them from promptly making another one.

Thanks, ACR.

snapshot_4222f9b8_02242886

“Mommy, dates sound like a lot of fun.  When can I get one?”

snapshot_4222f9b8_422428f5

“Arrrrrr, fishies, here comes the Kraken of the seas!”

Andy is a pretty cute child, as you can see here.  Hair doesn’t really fit him, but meh.

snapshot_4222f9b8_222429fd

He’s also a very studious child, which is helpful.

snapshot_4222f9b8_22242a11

Speaking of studying, Julia did enough and was at work for just long enough to get a promotion.  Yay!

“Does that mean we can have a roof now?  Or consistent paneling?!”

Psh, such whiners.

snapshot_4222f9b8_62242acd

It seems all of the studying hasn’t helped her at all with fingerprints, though.  Hint, Julia: your husband cooks a lot.

snapshot_4222f9b8_62242c82

“Mommy, I heard dates involve flowers, but I hate flowers.  Flowers are stinky.  I want all flowers to die.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_02242c86

“I like homework, though.  Can dates involve homework?”

snapshot_4222f9b8_c2242dc6

So surprisingly, Jeffrey survived to toddlerhood, considering we didn’t see him get fed once.  Not sure whether Andy is blowing the horn or trying to see through the counter there.

snapshot_4222f9b8_62242ded

Aaaaand we’ve got a well-dressed clone.  Bloody hell.

snapshot_4222f9b8_22242e5f

So right away, we should some smart milk in him and teach him to walk.  Not that either asshole gained a single point for it.

snapshot_4222f9b8_42242e76

Julia, of course, was too busy to help.

“Well, I’ve got booze to drink, fish to feed, wolves to give chew toys to.  It’s a busy life.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_c2242ef8

Holy shit, are those aspiration points?!

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, and it made me platinum, whatever.”

Truly a miracle.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a2242f1e

And then Andy played peek-a-boo with his clone.  Though Jeffrey looks a little frightened.

“Andy, why your face disappear?!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_82242f59

“Dates are about more than just flowers, Andy!  There are also about true love, friendship…”

snapshot_4222f9b8_82242f69

“So like a pet?”

snapshot_4222f9b8_a2243021

“Hell yeah, I’ve been working out ALL NIGHT in the pouring rain and now I am smoking.”

They have to look fit for each other, folks.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22431d8

“Hello, pound, yes, I’d like to adopt a dog.  You see, my son seems to think that dating is similar to owning a pet, and I’d like to dispel that before he hits teen years.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_c2243395

 

ANd here’s that dog, whose name I do not remember at all!  Yay!  I’ll have to look at the grave later.

snapshot_4222f9b8_622433f0

The dog came with a free old lady, which was a great deal but a bit unexpected.

snapshot_4222f9b8_22243406

And then Julia came home with another promotion and our favourite stalker, Amin Sims!

snapshot_4222f9b8_c224342f

“Hi, yes, could I have some more useful guests at my son’s birthday party?  An old lady and a pervert just doesn’t seem quite right.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_02243485

Unfortunately, that was all we got.

“Why is this weird man singing at me?”

Because he’s got serious issues.  Just grow up, dear.

snapshot_4222f9b8_e224349c

And thus popped Andy into teenhood, with Amin cheering and the old lady waving.  Great.

snapshot_4222f9b8_62243748

And then Jeffrey got to grow up too!  And Amin clapped for him too.  Gross, Amin.  Get out of here.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22437b1

“But I swear, I’m not a bad man!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222437be

“Mister, you clapped excitedly when I grew up, without knowing me.  You don’t need a mask for me to know.”

Poor Jeffrey.

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22436c1

And we’ll end these guys with a sneak preview of their business.  I know, thrilling.

snapshot_02231629_82243d37
snapshot_02231629_c2243dc0

So back at Margaret’s place, the two are busily working away on their aspirations, painting and building…

snapshot_02231629_e2243eae

And Woohooing while the creepy sculpture watches, as you do.

snapshot_02231629_22244459

“Hooray, a broken MunchieBot!”

We still have a long way to go, as you can see.

snapshot_02231629_c2244596

Meanwhile, I have Jason search for a job while matching the house decor.  As a Fortune Sim, he’ll need one to be happy.

snapshot_02231629_02244693

“Mister, you stole the Komei’s style.  Don’t make me hurt you.”

snapshot_02231629_e2244711

So the robot shop is doing well, with the bots selling out and giving us nice cash, even when Margaret is too damn focused on the windows.

snapshot_02231629_c224479c

Jason, on the other hand, did get himself a job that didn’t involve the Woodland Gangs.  I believe it was in science.

snapshot_02231629_0224496c

But then something went horribly wrong somehow.  How, I don’t know.  They live together!

“And he’ll be on the couch tonight.”

snapshot_02231629_c2244ce6

“Oh dear, miss, you appear to have a spider on your shoe — no worries, I can get it…”

snapshot_02231629_82244d15

“Jason, really, I was just getting a spider!”

“Yeah right, punk.  I know you were trying to peak up her shorts.  Don’t think I’ve forgotten about you!”

snapshot_02231629_62244d31

“Oh baby, I love the way you kiss my leather with your soft, supple–”

And on that note, it’s time to go to the Cable’s.

snapshot_c206f322_22244fb2

Where Jack has realized something special.

“I… I am pregnant?!  Oh glorious science!”

snapshot_c206f322_a224514c

And he’s not the only one getting some action, though I suspect ghost!Thalia doesn’t really approve.

“I can see what they’re doing and frankly, it’s revolting.”

snapshot_c206f322_822451b5

“Gosh, I just keep growing!  I didn’t know I’d get this big…”

Yeah, now please take care of the bathroom before haz-mat shows up.

snapshot_c206f322_222451f1

Freakin’ snow, making the plants extremely unhappy.  Jack is in a delicate condition!

“Not that that stops you.”

Of course not.  We need money!

snapshot_c206f322_022452a3

Meanwhile, inside…

“Well, little kitty, looks like no one cares about your dying.  Come along with me, then.  Soon you can hunt them to your heart’s content.”

snapshot_c206f322_622452b9

“Hmmm, I have a feeling that someone just died?  Ah well, at least my plants look great!”

Such a caring family.

snapshot_c206f322_c22452ef

“Look, Allegra, I can’t spend every waking minute bathing you.  I’m expecting and won’t have as much time…”

snapshot_c206f322_022453a4

“ARRRRRGH I WAS NOT BUILT FOR THIS!”

snapshot_c206f322_422453bf

Meanwhile, ten feet away…

“Oh boy, tiny dog!  Let us play!”

snapshot_c206f322_c22453e0

And out pops the baby!  Look at those cute little eyes!  This is Plasmosis.

snapshot_c206f322_822453f2

W-Wait a minute… Jack, why are you putting that baby on the cold hard deck, there’s a crib you know and GOD DAMMIT JACK NO–

snapshot_c206f322_02245408

Natural.  Fucking.  Twins.

With no services.  And Jack lives alone.

This is Endometriosis, and the end of my sanity.

snapshot_c206f322_0224556e

Please, sim!Me, please.  Turn into a TS3 ghost.  Help Jack with his kids.  They’re your grandchildren, surely you want the best for them…

snapshot_c206f322_c2245585

“SURPRISE, JACK!  MWAHAHAHA!”

“Oh hi Mom!”

Thank FUCK he was actually in a decent mood.  Thanks, sim!Me!  Thanks!

snapshot_c206f322_82245612

And as if there wasn’t enough madness, Alegra went and popped out two kittens.  Which Alegra?  You decide.

snapshot_c206f322_c2245621

Because to be honest, I’m not sure they know either.

snapshot_c206f322_c2245688

“Hahahaha, good morning, CABLES!  I see you haven’t paid your BILLS–”

Because we have no fucking money and TWIN ALIENS, you bastard.

snapshot_c206f322_8224588e

But that was nothing.  Because now the shitheads are GROWING UP.  Here’s Plasmosis…

snapshot_c206f322_622458e5

And here’s Endometriosis, and thus the beginning of pure hell.

snapshot_c206f322_c2245900

See that green plumbob?  Yeah.  Kiss it goodbye, Jack.

“But I love my children.”

Not for long.

snapshot_c206f322_c2245b3f

Did I mention Plasmosis is a sociopath with only one Nice point, while Endometriosis has nine or so?

“But… But bwutha, I’m stawving!”

“MINE!  Go and die, Endo!”

snapshot_c206f322_e2245b86

At least the kittens fucking grew up.

snapshot_c206f322_82245b96

And here’s the other one.  Alegra and Sweets produced motherfucking owls.

 

snapshot_c206f322_02245c36

“Now you see, once that player takes the ball, then they have to run it over there…”

“Meow?”

“No, they share it with others.”

“Meow!”

snapshot_c206f322_c2245bce

“Oh my gosh, Nedri, it’s been so long!  You have no idea how happy I am to see you…”

Hahahaha.  Yes.  NO IDEA.

MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

snapshot_42074dec_62247d4b

So back to families that actually have a reasonable amount of people, here we see Meadow giving a shit about the animals she wanted, foro nce.

snapshot_42074dec_82247d76

“Hmmm, why did they not invite me?”

snapshot_42074dec_82247f5d

She’s also showing an interest in her child for once, though more accurately, they both are curious about Terry.

Yes, I know, he’s fascinating, but we have things to do.

snapshot_42074dec_62247f6a

“Ah, hello, mother.”

“That baby is not four-years-old, Meadow.”

“I know, mother.”

“She’s not four-months-old, either.”

“I know, mother!”

snapshot_42074dec_22247f75

It’s a quiet birthday for Kaylene.  Just her immediate relatives, who try to make up for it by being as noisy as possible.

snapshot_42074dec_62247f93

Oh my, she’s a cutie.  And another tuxedo toddler.  Was there a sale on those outfits or something?

snapshot_42074dec_22247fa6

There’s a full cake literally right in front of you, Terry.

snapshot_42074dec_22247fef

Where was Benjamin?  Oh, just talking himself to death on the phone.

snapshot_42074dec_2224808f

Kaylene, you have a crib.  Also pretty sure there are pet beds INSIDE.

snapshot_42074dec_c22480a4

“GOsh, that date was awesome!  Have a GIGANTIC SPHERE!”

How she fit it in that bag, I do not know.  Sim magic.

snapshot_42074dec_222480f9

Meanwhile, Annie watches over Benjamin to ensure crazy sphere lady doesn’t get him.

snapshot_42074dec_8224810e

“Hell yes, dating all of these people is so worth it.  Super Grandma, here I come!”

snapshot_42074dec_c2248144

-Ka-WHAM!-

snapshot_42074dec_62248177

“I’m… Fine… Really!”

snapshot_42074dec_a224823c

Meadow, you fucking SUCK.  You’ve had kids, you’ve had your animals, what the fuck do you want?!

snapshot_42074dec_c22482c6

“Hell yeah, look at these arms of steel.  This grandma ain’t a little old cookie baker.”

snapshot_42074dec_822482fa

And what’s Terry up to?  Pottery, as usual.  But it makes him happy so.

snapshot_42074dec_c2248334

As opposed to Meadow, who SHOULD be happy teaching Kaylene here…

snapshot_42074dec_a22483bf

But isn’t.

“Honey, I’m glad you’re interacting with your child, but could you not block the TV?”

snapshot_42074dec_42248452

“Gosh, I just don’t get how this works.  How many times do I mix it…?”

Kid, you could just eat a hamburger.

snapshot_42074dec_622486d1

“Oh Terry, I know I’m useless and not getting aspiration points from the toddler desperately wanting my attention, but let’s have another child!”

snapshot_42074dec_62248b9e

“Are you my mother?”

“No, pup.  Now go away, I’m spying on the rats in the wall.”

Actually, she totally is, but this IS Annie.

snapshot_42074dec_e2248ce7

What is with this kid and being outside  You’d think there’d be more comfortable places to learn to talk than the cold, hard deck.  Like the high chair they’re talking about.

snapshot_42074dec_e2248dd4

“Oh… Oh god, no, I’m dying!  I cooked that muffin wrong!”

“Fascinating, human.  Please continue these death throes.”

snapshot_42074dec_62248de8

“Haha, GOTCHA!”

As Annie butts in, literally.

snapshot_42074dec_02248e5b

“Look, dear, we need some money and we need to sell this pottery.  I’m worried that Kaylene will shove herself into some of the pots.”

snapshot_42074dec_62248ec3

“Excuse me, but who do you think you are, admiring me?!”

Touchy people in the shop today.

snapshot_42074dec_62248f69

“Oh dear, I think I bored the dog to death.”

snapshot_42074dec_a2249029

Danielle, sweetie, that’s dog pee.  You don’t need to mop it up.

snapshot_42074dec_e2249074

“So do you think Kaylene can hurry it up?  I saw some townie walk by that I want to hit on.”

snapshot_42074dec_a224907c

“Oh hi Kaylene!”

snapshot_42074dec_62249091

ANd here she is.  Cute kid overall.  Definitely and interesting blend of her parents.

snapshot_42074dec_022490ad

Speaking of the parents…

“Isn’t this my bed?  I don’t get any respect around here.”

snapshot_42074dec_6224924e

Meanwhile, we got an employee at the pottery store, and she’s good.  She’s really, really fucking good.  Look at how happy Marylene is back there.

snapshot_42074dec_2224929e

Here she is convincing Christy to buy some pottery, while even Brandi isn’t messing with her.  Allyn, I heart you.

snapshot_42074dec_c2249549

Danielle, please don’t run over the puppy.

snapshot_42074dec_c22495c5

So in a desperate attempt to get Meadow’s aspirations up, I sent her along to the cooking lot to enter a cooking contest.

“I’ve got this.  I make the best crepes around.”

snapshot_42074dec_022495dc

“Heh heh, that’s right.  No one can best my spare ribs.”

“Are you kidding?  I made a mousse!”

“I wonder if I cooked the turkey too long”

snapshot_42074dec_822495ee

The tension is high… Faces are fraught…

snapshot_42074dec_62249614

And stupid Meadow motherfucking lost.  There went that aspiration boost, MEADOW.

snapshot_42074dec_a224963b

While Danielle was talking with sketchy characters.  Figures.

snapshot_42074dec_c22499c0

When your kid cooks better than you.

snapshot_42074dec_82249a29

I finally had to resort to a motherfucking date to get Meadow happy.  Two children and four dogs just wasn’t enough.

snapshot_42074dec_62249a5f

Damn, but the ghosts are catching a lot of action.

snapshot_42074dec_62249a69

But Antony hands down looks the creepiest about it.

snapshot_42074dec_e2249ae3

“So if you count each bump of the car and multiply it by the force…”

“Mommy, this is geography.”

snapshot_42074dec_a2249d48

Meanwhile, at the business, I make poor Terry eat garbage after a long day of work.

snapshot_42074dec_a2249da9

And then I make him get groceries so his family isn’t stuck eating garbage.

snapshot_42074dec_e2249e16

“Gosh, it’s my birthday!  I can’t believe it!”

snapshot_42074dec_a2249e31

“Whoa, I have hands!”

“Looking good, grandson, looking good.  You’ve got your grandma’s traits.”

snapshot_42074dec_82249e44

“Oh hi, Benjamin, you look different!”

snapshot_42074dec_62249e55

Indeed he does!  He looks a lot like Terry, but with softer cheekbones.  Quite a long way from his odd-looking toddler years.

snapshot_42074dec_62249e98

And thus it’s time to fix his personality.  I think he was mean and I wasn’t in the mood for that shit.  He just didn’t seem mean.

snapshot_42074dec_c2249ef0

Unlike other people I could name.

“You stupid punk!  You think you can make that move?!  You need to improve your act and skill before you can even think of besting me.”


And on that beautiful note, that’s the end of month 3 of the BACC!  We’ve come a long way already, haven’t we?  But there’s still a long, long way to go.  Join me next time as we raise aliens and businesses together!
