Hello everyone, and welcome to part two of month four of the BACC Silence Serenity! In month three, a bunch of Sims were born, and in part one of month four, a bunch more Sims were born! I know, thrilling. Who would’ve thought Sims would be born in a multigenerational challenge?
But enough of my snarkiness… Okay, that’s a lie. I am always snarky.
So poor Nery (whose name I might eventually spell correctly) was moved into the Cable household in month three to save Jack’s (and my) sanity. Nery here is one of the apartment life townies, with a personality of 2/8/2/6/7. It is probable that he is quitting his job in this picture.
I send them on a date in a desperate attempt to get Jack’s aspirations up, and hopefully stop him from having nervous breakdowns in shops. As you can see from that plumbob, he desperately needs help.
Then after the date, it’s time for some much-welcome skilling…
Quick, grow up quickly, before you lose that gold aspiration!
“But I don’t want to grow up!”
And Nery, stop being a creep.
And pop goes Jack into elderhood, with a fancy suit and some more much-needed aspiration points.
“How dare my son grow up!”
“Wait — stars and city streets? What the hell, lady?”
I have no idea. By the way, Endo and Plasmosis are both still alive in the neighborhood.
Endo here, besides having no luck with ghosts, is a 0/10/10/0/10.
“Oh boy, homework! Please daddy, can I do some more homework? I just love homework!”
“So when are you going to grow up and move out, kid?”
“Ask me that again and I’ll send a baseball toward your face.”
And Plasmosis here is a 10/10/10/5/0.
“But I hate to clean! I have no neat points!”
Yeah, but you’re the asshole who made that huge mess, so get to it!
“No, I don’t wanna! I’m going to play with the dog!”
“This isn’t fair!”
So yeah, I combined Jack’s former bedroom with the bathroom, and did not realize I had this poster up until afterward. We have unique decor!
“Weee! I get to fulfill aspiration points while my dumb brother has to clean the bathroom!”
You have 10 neat points. You like cleaning.
“Not when I’m forced to!”
With the kids grown up and Nery around, poor Jack here is FINALLY able to fulfill a major want and get a beautiful platinum plumbob.
“Gosh, Nery, you’re so nice! I love that we’re friends!”
“Romance… I had romance once…”
“All right, Allegra, it’s to make the graveyard confusing. Come on, now.”
“Huh, there’s a light coming from the heavens. I wonder if it’s a friend!”
Endo and Plasmosis share enough personality that they get along pretty well, even if Plasmosis still starves his twin.
“But… I made that!”
“Too bad. Make another one.”
“Yes, baaaaaaaabies, Nery man. Don’t you just want some baaaaaaaaaabies? Papa did well with baaaaaaabies.”
Dammit, Endo, get OUT OF THERE.
“You know, daddy, I think I would look great in makeup. Can we get some?”
“Kid, if you mention babies one more time, I’m tying you to the train tracks.”
Benjamin! That is not your paper!
“Funny, I don’t see your name on it.”
“Oh owl kitty, how I love you. How I love everyone. Can we be friends?”
“Bad owl kitty, bad! Furniture is not for scratching!”
“Oh Jaaaaaaack, I have some scratches you might like… Um, Jack?”
Sorry, Nery. With Jack finally away from the brink of death, we desperately need to make some money. And so to the grocery we go!
Amin Sims, would you get out of here.
“But I need some groceries and chicks to follow…”
Julia! Julia, don’t you want groceries?
“Does it look like I do?”
The grocery doesn’t do as well financially compared to Margaret’s shop, but the addition of the produce bin and the refrigerated bins helps to up our profits, and also allow families to buy groceries when I’m at their house.
Elders are kind of shit at shops though, and so I make sure we have this for when we really need to make profits.
“Um, hello, I can’t figure out how the door works!”
“Margaret, what is wrong with these humans?”
“Just smile and nod and look at groceries. I’m going to swipe this man’s fanny pack.”
“You know, when I told you to go on break, I didn’t want you to block off access to the store.”
“God, is this what my life has been reduced to? Piddly points from eating microwavable pastries? Well no more! It’s time I do something…”
“Oh boy, more homework, daddy? I love you daddy!”
The next morning…
“Gosh, I love doing homework with you, daddy!”
I’m starting to wonder just how long it took this kid to do his homework.
“Gosh, I love this couch!”
“Gosh, I love jumping on the bed!”
Okay, so they were all actually excited about the new puppy. Who seems very uncertain about the cats coming to greet her. This little lady is Muffin.
The kids brought friends home from school too, but that wasn’t going so well.
“You’re bad at dyeing your hair, sir.”
“Ugh, how dare you touch me!”
“Gosh, the restaurant played the most beautiful music! Of course, it was birds singing in the forest, since the gangs don’t have a real restaurant, but — are you listening?”
I hate when the pets do this. I have a mod that lets them sleep with the kids in the bed, but I think the kids have to get there first, and then this happens and they whine and can’t sleep.
“Kid, there is no way your bladder can hold that much.”
“AUGH SWEETS WHY?!”
I had to check Endo’s memories because I deleted Sweets’ grave since we had too many on this lot, just to get their name.
But hey, another bot I never used before: MunchieBot!
Nedry, you don’t need to cook. MunchieBot is here.
“Gosh, isn’t this a great date?”
“Gosh, you know what I love? Mathematics.”
“God, I can’t believe I’m making friends with these freaks. I need to get out more…”
“NERY! HOW COULD YOU?!”
Arrrrrgh, they haven’t even done anything! Ryan literally just got there! Freakin’ jealousy coding!
“Hey, Nery, great to– uh-oh.”
“You bastard! After I forced you into my house and made you take care of my kids!”
“Yeah, now that you mention it, that slapping feels might unjustified.”
“So! Where will we go for our date?”
“Yes, yes, great grades, Plasmosis. Not like my life is falling to pieces.”
“Oh baby, do you like what you see?”
“OH YES, BABY, YES–”
“Oh yeah… I’m back!”
And with that, it’s time for the original Baguet household, where Kaylene and Benjamin are catching up on homework.
Benjamin I’m afraid is dead in the neighborhood, but Kaylene isn’t! She’s a 7/1/10/3/8.
“Booo! You suck! Don’t you agree, Baxter?”
And let’s not forget the other dogs, like Jill here, the daughter of Baxter and Annie.
And here we can see most of Annie.
And then we have Meadow, eating chili in her underwear.
“Okay, I know it isn’t the chili that smells this bad…”
Annie, Meadow isn’t even nearby. Why are you hating on her?
“Because I’m Annie and I can.”
We tried to cure Baxter of his stench, but it didn’t go so well.
“Dammit dog, you ruin this leather and I’ll make you the replacement!”
You know, Neil, I’m starting to suspect you’re a stalker along with Amin Sims.
And yes, Meadow, you’re pregnant. Seriously, that sex education is terrible.
“Plasmosis says he came from space, but I don’t see any aliens!”
I hate trying to clean the stupid dog houses. Especially with three dogs, one of them is ALWAYS in it so it ends up being the swamp of death.
“You know what this business needs? A weird poster.”
Terry, dear, you’re outside.
“Please! You’re shoving me straight into Benjamin Long’s chest! PLEASE!”
Our first business ever is still doing very well. Allyn is a hell of a salesperson.
Seriously, could you two finish your homework in the next century?
Ah, like father, like son.
“Look, cooking omelets isn’t like SKIING!”
“Just watch them!”
“Wow, it’s amazing how you live in another country and yet still come to our school.”
“So amazing, I just want to kiss you!”
And again with that sex education.
Meanwhile, Benjamin was developing his skills at psychokinesis. Well done!
“Hmmm, a fine day at work. I wonder who I could seduce tonight.”
“How about me?”
“You, Grim? Gosh, is it already time?”
“I’m afraid it is, Danielle. But don’t worry, while the Bon Voyage teen may not care, Jack Cable always cares.”
Seriously. He must have learned it from Amin Sims.
Rest in peace Danielle Baguet nee Lillard, a 5/5/3/8/4 forest gang member with a penchant for love and sass. Now you may join Antony and judge everyone for eternity.
It says a lot when the dogs grieve better than the people.
“Gosh, it’s a shame about grandma. Oh well!”
“I know a way we can get higher than a rocket!”
You think the animation looks wonky here…
But it actually got worse.
Benjamin?! Benjamin, noooooo–
And then Benjamin continued the creepiness by sleeping next to Terry.
“Gosh, did the recipe say mix the batter once or twice…”
We still suck at washing the dogs.
“Kaylene, you are under arrest for not being fabulous enough.”
“Please. No one is as fabulous as me.”
“Is this kid ever going to leave?”
Probably not. Townies aren’t very good at observing time, and we have the “you invited me to stay the night!” glitch.
“Look at me. Stuck guarding a stupid human from other stupid humans. I am greater than this…”
“Kaylene darling, I know you love the TV, but you really need to watch your food when you’re baking it! You nearly burnt down the house.”
Imagine if kids could set fire to the easy-bake oven?
“Argh, wait, I didn’t finish the–”
“ARRRRGH, HONEY, WHERE ARE YOU?!”
“MOM, MOM, WHAT’S — oh you’re just giving birth. Phew. I thought there was a murder at first!”
Meet Andrew Baguet.
Dammit, Terry, you are not grilling the baby!
“But he’d taste so good with BBQ sauce–”
And also for Meadow, Maxx the puppy!
But no. It’s planting shit in the snow that gets her aspiration points.
“God, life is rough. I need a cold one.”
Actually I think I made her use the juicer.
“Plasmosis, I tried and tried and couldn’t find aliens!”
“You gotta prove your worth, Kaylene! Like my daddy did!”
“And I tell you, I will arrest whoever dismembered you…”
The animations for this are still hilarious, by the way.
“Oh god, Elizabeth! I’m… I’m mutating!”
“Oh boy, look Jill, a big black doggie! Do you wanna treat, Doggie?”
“This human is a fool, domestic dog.”
“Just take the damn treat. It’s tasty.”
“Haha, you think you can master that, Meadow? Really?”
“Shut up, Terry! I’d like to see you try with your own man flab!”
“Let me see… Yes, dear, I do believe you are ready to grow up.”
“See, Meadow? I was right! I did it, I did it!”
“I bet I can do this one, too. Just watch!”
“See, I did it!”
Andrew here is an 8/5/9/8/1. Clone of Benjamin, I think, though we upped Benjamin to a 3 or so in Niceness.
“Baby, we’ve deformed in the hot tub. Let’s go steady!”
“Oh Ms. Baguet, you sure know how to smustle!”
“Clap like you mean it, girl!”
“But baby, don’t you wanna cuddle?”
“And point to the right, and then point to the left — what?”
Guess who still fails at being a Family Sim?!
“Then explain my platinum plumbob!”
No clue. Photos are a year old, remember?
And pop goes Meadow, into a more reasonable outfit than she grew into last time, which is really saying something.
“Hmph. My outfit was better.”
“Ugh, Dad, you’re killing the mood!”
And that’s the end of Month Four! Woo! Next time: Will Benjamin grow up and marry Elizabeth? Will Kaylene ever find those aliens? Will Nery and Jack hate each other for all time? Will Jason have alien twins like Jack did? Stay tuned!
