That’s a damn lie.
I can’t even remember if I set up an heir poll. Hm. The end of the last chapter says that we’d have an heir poll this chapter, so I guess that’s what we’re going to do! How much time do we have until the triplets age up?
… past me did not think this through.
Let’s check out our current generation to kind of recap.
Here’s Lead. she got her TV privileges revoked. She also got her ‘actual photo’ privileges revoked because she was sleeping at the time and then I got distracted by other things.
Lead needs to learn painting and photography, and wants to take pictures of cryptids. She already has some ghost photos and a blurry picture of a zombie.
Thallium needs to learn painting and writing. She’s ahead of the other girls in terms of painting but that’s only because her dad spends a ton of time on the computer trying to max writing because he has the Jack of All Trades LTW. So she hasn’t gotten started on her second skill yet.
I dress her up in old clothes because I was on an Austen kick when I was trying to figure out what ‘author’ looked like. These are not Regency Era clothes by a long shot, though.
And here we have Mercury, who is learning painting and sculpture. She’s due for a personality upgrade because her grades were bad at some point and I never ended up giving her either of the personality traits that will make skilling easier for her.
She likes making things for herself in order to save the environment and sculpting is probably the most visually-interesting skill to build compared to photography and writing.
This was about when I was going to take Lead’s *official* picture when–
We got the Oh My Ghost!
The game probably intended this for Ernest since he’s the one that died last but fuck that noise.
Let’s reach those generation objectives, baby!!
… what job did Tantalum even have? Reporter? Reporter.
Unfortunately he has to start from the beginning. But hopefully we can rocket through at least the early levels.
Happily, we at least started out bumped up to level 4. Does Tantalum have a degree?? Maybe???
Then this happened.
I. Don’t know what this is. It kept flashing in and out of existence.
It does not rotate with the camera, but remained fixed in place. Except for the flashing in and out thing. I attempted to find where it ended but, like a rainbow, it was ephemeral. Transient. Striped.
I half expected to find her digging through the trash because that’s What Sims Do but she was just on her way home from school.
This is slander.
Gold has like a million best friends after our blogging trick so it’s pretty easy to invite people over for Tantalum to interview.
This guy wants his autograph first.
And then we had to impress him.
He wanted our autograph I think he’s already impressed.
Erin: We should get… the little photo one to come take a picture. She likes ghosts.
Lead: … that’s me, Grandma.
Lead had to go out on a date, though. I had to check that it was the right girlfriend. Which it was, thankfully.
They picked the worst place to stand for their date so I didn’t take any pictures.
I have no idea what this is referring to.
Time to get cracking on those articles. Gotta hit the top of that career ladder.
Sorry Sharpo but you’re an extra and just a stepping stone in our path to greatness.
I didn’t know stoves could do this? Or I did and I forgot.
Ugly hair & bland face. Next.
I feel like I might have seen this and talked about how horrifying this opportunity is??
If I haven’t… it’s horrifying.
Why are they looking at my sims’ melons?
Then we had three birthdays. : P
So Thallium’s last trait is ‘dramatic’ because we like to have fun here. This leaves her final traits as ambitious, athletic, artistic, bookworm, and dramatic.
She is our authoress.
Lead got Savvy Sculptor. Her other traits are friendly, perceptive, eco-friendly, and neurotic.
Probably going to switch friendly for artistic when I get the chance. Friendly’s kind of a boring trait.
She is our sculptor.
Lead got Photographer’s Eye. Her other traits are artistic, excitable, perceptive, and supernatural fan.
I tried to go for an Agent Mulder type of thing but I’ve also never seen the X-Files.
She is our photographer.
That is NOT a pre-approved outfit!!
Anyway we’re going to France to try and get the LTH needed to fix Mercury’s last trait. And because why not.
I have a soft spot in my heart for Jeannine because she was the first sim I ever married into my main household.
I hope this guy is the owner or something because he just comped us §100 of
Well it’s a good thing we didn’t pay for all that.
And Lead is
pregnant drank some bad nectar.
Anyway Mercury ticked over to the requisite number of LTH points so her friendly trait is now artistic.
