I’ve been gone for two months but in my defense I’ve been doing grad school.
Last time we… uh… uh… all the girls got into serious relationships! With even more girls!
Mercury: But my one true love will always be my cozy bed.
Still, Merc gets a little more flirting in before heading to sleep.
Erin got a promotion, which took me by surprise a little because I’ve kind of completely forgotten how far along anyone is with anything.
Except I know that Gold completed his blogging thing because I spent like two game days befriending the whole town.
For some reason everyone wants to eat in the game room this morning.
For some reason Thallium decided to get up as soon as Mercury sat down.
Is there a rivalry brewing? Or did she the food she was eating suddenly go bad? Probably the second one because Mercury’s plate is about to go off too.
In other news, Erin apparently has pink hair when she’s in werewolf form. But grey hair as a human sim. Weird.
Then I got a notification that there was a fire on the lot.
It seems like a priceless vase is burning. Ah.
I’ll accept that this is my fault.
The game let me replace the burnt vase when I clicked on it but this is clearly not the one we started with.
I was called inside a second time for Ernest’s death.
Gold: ‘Sup mom. Am I late?
Erin: I know we basically never acknowledge his existence but you can at least try to be considerate while your step-grandfather (I think) is dying.
Death: Eʀɴᴇsᴛ Mᴇɴᴅᴇʟᴇᴇᴠ, ᴛʜᴇ ᴇɴᴅ ɪs ʜᴇʀᴇ, ʏᴀᴅᴀ-ʏᴀᴅᴀ… I ᴋɪɴᴅ ᴏғ ғᴏʀɢᴏᴛ ᴀʙᴏᴜᴛ ʏᴏᴜ ᴛᴏ ʙᴇ ʜᴏɴᴇsᴛ…
Jack: You’re kind of hot when you’re watching a man die.
Thallium: I heard great-grampa died while we were at school.
Thallium: Pretty sad.
Thallium: … he never even had an actual bed to sleep in.
Mercury: Wait, are you saying that old guy who hung around here all the time was related to us???
Thallium: Today I picked a sensible place for breakfast. But I’m still not eating next to you.
Lead: I picked a good place to do homework, right guys? … right?
Thallium: This painting is a look into my psyche and how that fire has been tormenting my subconscious.
Gold: … Thallium, I love you, but you weren’t here for the fire, it lasted for all of five seconds, and I know for a fact that you’ve been working on that painting long before that fire even happened.
Thallium: Dad please. No one will respect me as an artist unless my paintings come from a place of suffering.
Who the hell is Sarah???
One of the girls brought a boy home from school. So it’s not that there weren’t any teenage boys in town when they went to prom.
It’s just that everyone in this family is super gay.
Thallium why would you want to snub your sister.
Thallium: Are we not already doing that? She’s barely shown up this chapter.
Jack: Baby I wanna kiss you all over… and I mean allllll over.
Erin: Do you have to say these things in front of his mother. :I
Lead’s been doing things, they’re just things that don’t lend themselves to taking pictures. Stuff like taking pictures and painting.
Somehow no one had realized that there was a werewolf living right in the house so now Lead has a picture of a ghost and a werewolf. As well as the shitty zombie picture.
Weirdly, while Lead is into chasing down supernatural beings, Mercury is the one who’s into conspiracy theories.
Mercury: I’m telling you, aliens definitely exist, but we don’t have the technology to contact them. If we could, they’d definitely abduct us and impregnate sim men.
Gold: Honey, that’s ridiculous. Next you’ll be saying that rain exists.
Mercury: We don’t have the technology to experience that either!
Mercury: Dad thinks I’m crazy because I believe in aliens. At least I don’t believe the stuff that Lead does. She thinks that there are people covered in fur who devour everything and have horrible table manners!
Thallium: You’re right, something like that definitely couldn’t exist!
I found that this is a thing you can do and now I definitely need to have someone eat cinnamon.
Oh, hey! It’s Lead! She exists after all!
Lead: … I’m not sure what’s scarier, grandma or whatever the fuck Thallium’s been painting.
We’ll have a triple birthday and an heir vote next chapter. Probably. Time’s a little weird because one of the triplets is somehow a full two days younger than the one the game thinks is oldest.
