Who would have guessed?
School and working retail during the holidays sort of kicked my butt this year. So much so that I played some, forgot to write anything up, forgot that I forgot to write anything up for that part, and deleted those screenshots. Oops.
It was mainly that Mercury went to the future, we ogled the expansion pack features, and she found herself a husband after making out with him in a bathroom. Standard legacy stuff. They got married and we dragged him back to the present.
I still get a little (!!!) in my head every time I see a horse in the game. Horse!
Oh right, we have aliens now. They’re actually a thing in the game and I should maybe look into adding one to the family before the legacy’s over. And maybe a plantsim too.
But first we have to work on our generation things. Tantalum needs to get close to his boss so he can get back up to the job level he had before. Because he’s an ‘elderly’ ghost so the game is counting down until he’ll lose his grasp on the mortal coil or something.
He really needs those promotions.
… okay he just went to sleep and his boss is kind of a creep.
One, I had no idea this was a thing that came with Seasons. Or I did and completely forgot.
Two, vaccinations. They’re good. Get them if you can.
I’m sure I had something witty to say about the… oh!
Those newspapers! They’re going to get soggy because they’re not in bags.
… I think the delivery of that was better in my head when I took the picture.
Newsgirl: It’s not like you’re going to read it anyway.
Tantalum: I feel like… I suddenly have enough lifetime happiness for something amazing.
Well, it’s a good thing you’re happy. Because your wife and child certainly aren’t.
Tantalum: I’m going to be a young adult again! I’ve got a new lease on life! Isn’t that amazing, Erin? Erin?
What a time to introduce Mercury’s husband.
I think his name is Felix??
We’re pleased to announce that Mercury and … Felix… maybe… Mendeleev are expecting a baby!
But more importantly the lake outside is frozen and they can skate on it!!
Felix or whatever! Go outside!!!
Fog on the windows!!!!
But it’s actually not even Spooky Day in the game, so I send… him… to get pumpkins so we can decorate and all that.
Getting the most out of this expansion for as long as I can.
… maybe you want to put down newspaper for that?
He: I would, but all the ones we’ve been getting recently were soggy.
*shakes fist at newspaper girl*
Nothing much happened other than Felix (?) preparing for Spooky Day, since everyone else in the house is just kind of working on skills. So baby.
But not before a zombie dies outside.
It’s the ciiiircle of liiiiiife
So meet Bismuth. It’s a boy.
It’s a Simpson!
Jack hasn’t been assigned to skilling duty or spooky duty, so he’s on nooboo duty.
Jack: The baby’s bright yellow. This is what we get for feeding children synthetic green milk for generations on end.
Since the baby is a boy named Bismuth, I thought it was fitting for his imaginary friend to be a girl named Steven.
I had something witty but I forgot.
What’s-your-face! Get back to decorating the house!
I’ll end this on a sculpture Mercury made of a horse. She only ever sculpts horses.
This isn’t foreshadowing because we have absolutely no space for a horse.
