Silence Serenity: Month V

Hello everyone and welcome back to my BACC challenge!  I beat Pokemon Black last night and am currently in the game spinning in circles hoping a Seviper will show up that my stupid team DOESN’T KO.  And what do you know, I just succeeded!  Maybe I can actually explore now, what a concept.

Last time we were here, our Family Sims continued to fail at life while teenagers grew older and made out with Bon Voyage townies, because what else are they there for?  Our second generation is growing old, and generation three is getting ready to take charge of the town, whether they want to or not!

snapshot_4222f9b8_c22b3328

Three of our seven or so (Nery was added in so late that I don’t really count him) second generation citizens (it took me too long to spell that) have grown into Elders.  Julia and Orlando are next, though it seems that Julia prefers to practice yoga and/or party tricks.

snapshot_4222f9b8_822b3455

Orlando actually gets aspiration points, though.  What kind of Family Sim are you?!

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3697

Let me give you a quick look at the house, as it’s a funky one.  The outside is pretty normal except that the deck kind of doesn’t fit, erm.

snapshot_4222f9b8_822b36ad

And the inside is a terrifying amount of blue!  Complete with an exercise room.  Could have made a second kid’s room but bunking together builds comradery.  And for reasons I’m not quite sure of, WordPress refuses to acknowledge that as a word.

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22b3733

Meanwhile, yet another tuxedo-wearing toddler.  I’m not finding any pictures of this kid’s birth, awkward, so just in case you haven’t been introduced, this is Abraham.  I’ll get his personality later, as I have TS4 minimized instead of TS2.

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3763

“Screw my little brother!  It’s my turn for a birthday!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22b3791

“My god, he grew spider hands!”

Not only that but he’s getting aspiration points for them.

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3862

You know, Orlando, you could gain aspiration points for this.

“Nah, too easy.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b38b9

Meanwhile, if you look carefully through the windows, you can see we’re doing homework literally at the last minute!

“Gah, no, that’s not right, focus, focus, ignore the horn!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22b3948

While Abraham took to floating.

“I am ninwa.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3981

“Look, kid, floating is great and all, but you really need to learn how to use a toilet.”
“But I ninwa!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b39ba

Free Time really amps up the strange outfits, doesn’t it?  Somehow that doesn’t look too comfortable.

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3c79

But look who came home with a promotion!  Hooray!

“I am pleased with this human.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22b3d2b

So the kids were annoying me with their Family and Pleasure wants (or I think Jeffrey is Pleasure), so I took them out to our music lot, which is a premade coffee lot thing.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22b3d60

The woodland people seem relieved that there is a pool table.

“Finally!  We don’t have to construct this ourselves!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_822b3d6b

There’s a surprising lack of teenagers at the place, though.  Andy is forced to chat up the coffee girl.

snapshot_4222f9b8_822b3dcc

“So can I get a free cup now?”
“No.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3de2

“Ha ha, loser, loser!  Can’t even chat up a coffee girl!”

She seems way too happy with the situation.  Also how did I never notice the little tea boxes next to the coffee machine?  How cute!

snapshot_4222f9b8_022b3e96

“Mommy, ninwa want Mommy!”
“Good, good!  Use those talking skills!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222b3ed5

How about you use your logic skills?

“It is illogical that we have paneling on the inside of the house.”

Oh shut up.

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22b4100

Orlando!

“What?  I didn’t do anything.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22b4115

“Help, help, this fire appeared out of no where and my hands are stuck in the fridge!”
“Grrrr, fire, grrrr!”
“I really need to grow up and get out of here.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_822b412d

Jeffrey, the kitchen is burning down.

“That’s nice.  Kind of busy here.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_022b417f

Dammit, Julia, you brought home Amin Sims the Stalker!

snapshot_4222f9b8_422b41fd

And, of course, he’s there to witness a birthday, even blocking family members.

“Gosh, Julia, you really look smoking in those pajamas.”
“Don’t make me break your kneecaps, Amin.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_c22bc6c0

So we actually invited people over for these birthdays, though you’d think we would serve them something better than deli meat sandwiches.

snapshot_4222f9b8_022bc821

Not that they seem bothered.

“Oh yeah, everyone!  Synchronous deli meat fart!  Aaaaaaand GO!”

Yep, I’m classy.  That’s Abraham in the striped shirt in the front.

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22bc8a6

Aaaand then some sort of fiasco happened.

“Whoa, I’m leaving before this gets worse.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22bc8ba

“How could you do it, you bastard?!  How?!”
“Me?!  You’re the one who enslaved me and made me quit my job to take care of kids!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_822bcacd

Forgot those lunatics.  Off to the bakery and restaurant, where we find that rearranging stoves has some entertaining side effects.

snapshot_4222f9b8_222bcb49

Combining a shop and a restaurant is perhaps not the best idea.  It means you need a lot of employees and/or family slaves, and the crowding can get a bit crazy.

“I… I just want you to sit down for a meal!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22bcb76

Thankfully I love micromanaging.  Jeffrey comes along to be the waiter.

“Yes, today, we have not one, but two fried eggs as our special!”

snapshot_4222f9b8_022bcf9a

And just in time at home, our chef maximizes his cooking!

snapshot_4222f9b8_022bcfb8

*pop!*

“Oh my god, your butt!  It sagged before my eyes!”

Yep, I’m really classy today.

snapshot_4222f9b8_c22bcfe0

*pop!*

“Wooooo, yeah, Julia!  You’re a smoking hot babe!”

At least she got aspiration points, unlike a certain someone.

snapshot_4222f9b8_e22bd07c

And then she maxes out her body!  Something you will not manage with a TS4 Elder.  Which I hate.  They can’t even WooHoo without feeling “overexerted” and about to die.  Lame.

snapshot_4222f9b8_622bd129

All right, Orlando, moment of truth.  10 cooking points.  Can you do it?

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22bd156

And he can!  He doesn’t look too impressed though.

snapshot_4222f9b8_c22bd22e

“Look, Kaylene, I’m just saying that I love a good pair of stilettos for when I cook lobster.”

snapshot_4222f9b8_222bd4b1

Jeffrey, dammit, leave Sophie alone!

snapshot_4222f9b8_422bd4ee

“Wait, what’s… What’s happening to me?!”

Finally!

snapshot_4222f9b8_a22bd508

*pop!*

The first of the third generation grows into an Adult!  Hell yeah!

But I’m going to save his face for next time, because oh man.

snapshot_02231629_022bdbae

At Maragaret’s household, in full view off the original Baguet house…

snapshot_02231629_822bdbcb

“Ugh, that alien spacecraft hurts my sensitive robotic hearing!”

snapshot_02231629_422bdc0d

Meanwhile, inside…

“Margaret!  Margaret, no!”

snapshot_02231629_022bdc2f

“Oh god, no, I come back from probing to this!”
“I can’t watch, Jacob!  Tell me she makes it!”

snapshot_02231629_e22bdc41

“Oh dear god, what did you do?
“What?  Everything’s fine… I’m just a bit tingly…”

snapshot_02231629_422bdc5b

I”m glad to see Jacob is so very concerned about the game room going up in flames.

snapshot_02231629_822bdca6

So somehow the family survived, and I then emptied out their inventories of excessive baked goods.  Maxima won’t have to cook for a while.

snapshot_02231629_c22bdd1a

Dammit, Margaret, again?!  You have Mechanical points!

snapshot_02231629_a22bdd32

Here, eat a rotten pastry and try not to get killed.

“Gee, thanks.”

snapshot_02231629_622be37b

So I upgraded the house and moved the computer upstairs, and then she was able to fix it.  Okay then.

snapshot_02231629_822be3a1

It’s called waiting your turn, Maxima.

snapshot_02231629_622be434

“Finally, the computer is mine!”

I too get aspiration points from my computer.

snapshot_02231629_822be45b

Speaking of aspirations…

“Oh god oh god, the aliens can see I’m not wearing underwear!”

snapshot_02231629_022be4b9

“Oh god, you guys again?!”
“T-Thanks for the… Panties…”

snapshot_02231629_422be505

“I have created a true masterpiece of art.  It is a lie that machines do not understand such creative concepts.”

snapshot_02231629_e22be54e

“Oh my god, the babies will come from where?

snapshot_02231629_422be5a2

“I am impressed by how often this family has been probed.  Please take this gift.”

Uh, thanks, I think.

snapshot_02231629_c22be67e

Ugh, finally!  To the shop!

snapshot_02231629_622be7dd

Are you kidding me, Amin Sims.

“Haha, wheee!  Don’t you want to join me, Margaret?  Forever?!

snapshot_02231629_422be981

As you can see, we’ve managed to build a cute little electronics shop.

snapshot_02231629_622bec3b

Which means finally, my Sims have a place to buy the stupid electronics they always demand!  Want a cell phone?  Finally you can get one.

snapshot_02231629_622becb3

I might’ve worked Margaret a bit too hard to get there, though.

snapshot_02231629_a22bee2f

“Komei, you are one smoking-hot–”

snapshot_02231629_c22bef2d

“Arrrrrgh, the pain!”
“Margaret, this man’s pain pleases me.”

snapshot_02231629_a22bef58

Wait a minute, why are you gaining gaming points from alien babies?

“We know we’re virtual.”

snapshot_02231629_a22bef6e

And yep — alien twins again.  At least this household actually has the man power to take care of them.

Jacob is holding Mark.  Maxima is holding Euro.  Do you recognize the them?

snapshot_02231629_022bef9f

It’s currency, because their father Jacob is a Fortune Sim!

The Mark is German currency used prior to their joining of the European Union and transferring to the Euro, which then needless to say, is the EU currency.

snapshot_02231629_c22bf031

So in the mean time, we have a pinball machine, arcade machine, and gaming system, so it’s time for Maxima to get a job playing those all day.

snapshot_02231629_422bf0d8

Jacob, meanwhile, goes straight back to work.  Can’t expect much from a Fortune Sim.

snapshot_02231629_c22bf183

So it seems that Servos are as good with babies as it seems, though arm-severing is a concern.

snapshot_02231629_622bf21a

Jacob isn’t too bad of a father, really.  He’s got enough paternal instincts to feed them once in a while.

snapshot_02231629_e22bf26b

Not enough to diaper them, though.

That reminds me, Alexander Goth married some dormie in my Pleasantview game and they had to go and throw natural twins, and then dormie always had a fear of changing a diaper.  Always.  So her aspiration tanked since we couldn’t always wait for Alexander to get home.  Ugh.  I wanted to kill her and I almost never want to kill my Sims.

snapshot_02231629_222bf397

“I have completed a great novel.  Truly, I bring human arts to new heights.”

snapshot_02231629_222bf428

Now if only you would do the same for the babies.  I don’t think they belong under the changing station.

snapshot_02231629_422bf467

“There there, little Mark.  Papa Maxima has you.”

Maxima, you are way too adorable.

snapshot_02231629_422bf558

*pop!*

Oh my.  Now it’ll take even longer to make this Servo.

snapshot_02231629_422bf5cb

Perhaps, but it’s time for twin toddler hell!

First up is Euro…

snapshot_02231629_422bf72d

And downstairs is Mark!

snapshot_02231629_422bfa29

Twin toddlers are a lot easier with three people in the house.

snapshot_02231629_022bfa6a

It helps that Jacob is a weird Fortune Sim.

“Gosh, I wuv you, daddy!”
“And I love you, my little Euro!”

snapshot_c206f322_422bfea1

But enough of them, it’s time for the Cables!  I don’t have a whole lot of pictures this time around, so we can do all of month five in one post.

So despite the fact that they currently hate each other, Jack still wants to flirt with Nery.

snapshot_c206f322_622bffe2

Jack is still being a butt though, so I go to extreme measures.

“Please, Jack, I have such a burning headache… Only one thing could fix it!”
“If that’s the best pick-up line you have, you’re no Romance Sim.”

snapshot_c206f322_422c0069

“Oh little kitten, you’re the only one who understands me…”

snapshot_c206f322_622c00a2

Fabulous Kid, Jack is making a turkey…

“I’m good.  Living in the woods makes you able to eat anything.”

snapshot_c206f322_622c0106

So it seems Nery’s awful pick-up line worked out.

snapshot_c206f322_a22c011d

What are the kids doing?  Catching up on their copious piles of homework.

snapshot_c206f322_e22c02a7

While Muffin here pops into an interesting adult.

snapshot_c206f322_422c05dc

By some miracle, Amin Sims isn’t the one to stalk this birthday.  It’s some woodland gang member instead.

“Oh my god, Endo, can I grow next, huh?”

snapshot_c206f322_822c061b

“Sure you can!”

I must say, Plasmosis is surprisingly normal-looking for a first-gen. alien kid.

snapshot_c206f322_a22c076c

But enough of them.  It’s time to go to the restaurant to avoid Jealous Jack!

“Oh, Ryan, I think I love you.”

snapshot_c206f322_c22c0840

Kaching, kaching.

snapshot_c206f322_622c088e

Too bad the ghosts don’t like you.

“Screw you, Nery, this is my garden!”

snapshot_c206f322_422c091c

Plasmosis, stop spying on the neighbors.

“But he had babies!”

So did your father, now do something constructive.

snapshot_c206f322_e22c0dc4

So that kitten popped into a rather boring cat.  I think this is Owl?

snapshot_c206f322_622c0eb6

So back at the shop, our Bon Voyage townie isn’t made out for retail.

“That’s right, my work ball may be green and happy, but I quit anyway!”

snapshot_c206f322_c22c10e1

And it’s back to the restaurant with Lindsay!  God it’s a relief to have this now.  Those piddly “Eat Out with…” Wants can be fulfilled, which means the bigger-point Wants will show up more quickly!

snapshot_c206f322_e22c1119

“You know, this food is great, but what I really want is a movie theatre.”

snapshot_c206f322_822c1161

“I may not have a theatre, but I know a bit about movies…”

And apparently the old creeper wants to watch.

snapshot_c206f322_e22c11d5

“Oh baby, come to me, MMMMMFF–”
“Um, excuse me, I want to buy some cake.”

snapshot_c206f322_022c1225

“Well that was a great date, baby.”
“I loved it, Nery, but there was something crunchy in my food…”

snapshot_c206f322_222c12ad

Meanwhile, back at home, Endo gets hobby points for burning down the house.

snapshot_c206f322_a22c1343

As does Plasmosis, apparently.

“Grrrr, this will get Nery!”

snapshot_c206f322_e22c13aa

Meanwhile, Jack comes home with a nice pile of money.

snapshot_c206f322_222c140f

“Hey, wait a minute, this isn’t a date!”

Nope.  It’s time for you to earn your keep.

snapshot_c206f322_022c1c49

Welcome to the Castle of FUN!  This is our Club lot, which opens up one position in the Slacker career.

snapshot_c206f322_e22c1d3b

The Castle of FUN! features drinks, food, and only the finest tunes.

snapshot_c206f322_022c1d6c

Of course, the Woodland gangs are thrilled.

snapshot_c206f322_c22c1d82

Or not.

“God this DJ is awful, but I just can’t help but dance!”

snapshot_c206f322_822c21b6

Meanwhile, back at home, the cats prevent Jack from sleeping.

snapshot_c206f322_c22c2253

Yeah, bad time to visit, Benjamin.

snapshot_c206f322_422c2274

“Ugh, no more tubby!  I need to be fit for my dates!”

snapshot_c206f322_e22c238a

“Grrr, tree!  How dare you be on fire!”

snapshot_c206f322_e22c239e

“Oh well, whatever.”

snapshot_c206f322_e22c23d1

“Hell yeah, I may be smelly, but look at these muscles!”

snapshot_c206f322_422c242d

So, uh, the tree never went out.  It’s still on fire, even in the current game.

snapshot_c206f322_e22c2483

Serves you right for quitting.  Get off of our lot.

snapshot_c206f322_822c257e

“Plasmosis, I know you did that on purpose!”
“What?  I figured you’d be fast enough.”

snapshot_c206f322_222c2593

“AAAAAAAAAAAA”

snapshot_c206f322_622c2654

“Ugh, get off of me, Plasmosis!”

snapshot_42074dec_822c2b7b

Ah, wait a loving family the Cables are, no?  Reminds me of my real family.

But it’s time for the original Baguets.  Kaylene is learning the ropes, and so of course Amin Sims is a customer.

snapshot_42074dec_822c2f5e

Maxx popped into a collie mix, ready to continue the Baguet dog legacy.

snapshot_42074dec_c22c3072

Well, in theory, anyway.

snapshot_42074dec_a22c30be

“So, dad, do we have to do anything to get Andrew to grow up?”
“Just stand here emotionless, Ben.”

snapshot_42074dec_822c30dc

“Augh, he’s a Komei clone!”
“Yeah!  Go, Komei Andrew, go!”

snapshot_42074dec_022c3115

“So do you think if we stare at the dog, he’ll transform too?”
“Here’s hoping.”

snapshot_42074dec_c22c320f

I changed Andrew into a dorkier kid, though really the Komei look is dorky as it is.  Here he is in his default wear.  Yes, his default wear is an apron.

snapshot_42074dec_422c32eb

Really, it’s not too surprising that he’s weird.

“Oh yeah!  Oh yeah!  Look to the side!  Oh yeah!”

snapshot_42074dec_222c33bf

“Oh Meadow, I don’t care which parts of you get wrinkly, I’ll always love you.”

snapshot_42074dec_c22c34ac

“So since mom and dad are too busy being gross, Baxter and I will teach you how to do your homework.”

snapshot_42074dec_222c35fa

“Screw this family!”

Jeffrey, rude.  These are your relatives.

“And screw them!”

And yeah, the families are backwards, whatever.

snapshot_42074dec_e22c3643

Though his personality fits right in, really.

“I get aspiration points when I smack you with the ball!”

snapshot_42074dec_e22c3652

“Yeah, well, let’s see how you like it!”
“Ow!  Brat!”

snapshot_42074dec_222c3685

“I shall draw out my plans for revenge…”

snapshot_42074dec_222c396c

“Yes, hello.  No Julia does not live here.  She has not lived here for years.  Why do you keep calling?”

True story.  Pretty sure Marisa still calls the family asking for Julia.

snapshot_42074dec_622c3ab1

“Hell yeah, this is my venue, I can feel it.”
“Here’s your grape juice, kid.”

snapshot_42074dec_a22c3ae3

“Who’s ready to smustle?!

Benjamin here actually has Creativity points.

snapshot_42074dec_a22c3c2b

“Marsha  Breuing.  I have heard great things about you.”

snapshot_42074dec_422c3ca2

Don’t ask me who is beating up Maxx.  I don’t know either.

snapshot_42074dec_622c3d3b

“Oh baby, I know of who we can have even more fun…”

snapshot_42074dec_222c3dca

“… By going to my sister’s restaurant!”

snapshot_42074dec_222c3e3d

Really, you weird-os?  That’s what you want to order at a restaurant?  A cookie and a soda?

snapshot_42074dec_822c3e77

“Gosh, I just love babies, don’t you?!”
“Um… S-Sure, Julia… So can I have my soda?”

snapshot_42074dec_222c3e99

Hey, wait a minute — That’s not yours, Benjamin!

snapshot_42074dec_622c3e9e

“It is now.”
“Did you just steal that man’s cookie?”

snapshot_42074dec_822c3ebb

And then he plopped the plate back down in front of them.

“Dear, should we sic Maxx on him?”

snapshot_42074dec_422c3efb

“Oh baby, even with our food being stolen, that was a wonderful date.”

snapshot_42074dec_022c3fb3

“I find it incredible that there is so much peace among the Woodland Gangs now.  When I was a teen, there was constant war!”

snapshot_42074dec_222c4011

“Yesss, Benjamin, yessss, look deep into my eyes…”
“Cut the crap, kid, or I’m throwing you out the window.”

snapshot_42074dec_c22c4431

“Heh heh, aspiration points for looking at a sexy red head.  Oh yeeeeeah.”

snapshot_42074dec_e22c455e

“Look, mom, maybe you should stick to ice cream.  Or would you burn that too?”

snapshot_42074dec_c22c4672

“And then he said I’d set off the smoke alarm!  Can you believe it?”
“Well you set off mine, baby.”

snapshot_42074dec_422c46e8

Once again with the piddly Wants, Meadow.  You’re making it difficult to keep you platinum.

snapshot_42074dec_c22c474f

“Hell yeah, Andrew!  Feel the smustle!”

This family is addicted.

snapshot_42074dec_822c47dc

“I feel it.  I’m closer to being free.”

snapshot_42074dec_e22c47fb

*pop!*

“He got 5K aspirations for growing a bit taller?”

Yeah, he loves me.

snapshot_42074dec_022c484c

But he’s not the chosen “heir”, so he gets to move out!  Well, once he is surgically removed from the chair.

snapshot_42074dec_e22c48c4

“Augh, Dad!

snapshot_00000046_c22c494a

And that’s where we’ll end!  The Cable household is barely visible in the bottom left, and Julia’s family is off-screen to the left.  The Castle of FUN! is also off-screen and is to the left on the giant hill.

Next time: the rise of the third-generation!  Do they marry Bon Voyage townies?  Will the Cable ghosts stop terrorizing visitors?  Will Meadow ever stay freakin’ Platinum?  Maybe you can find out next time!
