Hecky-heck I haven’t played in a while grad school is kicking my BUTT.
Speaking of we learned that language is fake. Did you know language is fake? Yeah. What’s the difference between ‘sad’ and ‘sat’? I used to think it’s the ‘t’ and the ‘d’ sound but actually those are just the SAME HECKING SOUND and the real difference is just in how long we hold out the vowel. Nothing means anything anymore.
… I need to take a break from linguistics.
Oh god I don’t know the vampire ghost’s name so she can’t talk. Shit. Hold on.
Erin’s Mom Who Died On Her Wedding Night: Too bad the kid who’s into ghosts isn’t out here.
I’m not sure what to do with Gold now that he’s finished generation stuff? He has another blog ‘type’ now that I wanted to play around with, but I don’t see a review blog being that much different than a personal blog, gameplay wise.
And I, personally, have kind of got the ‘blogged out’ moodlet after forcing Gold to marathon blog for like a day straight.
… I think I’m gonna give him a haircut though. Did I pick that hair out? Maybe? February-me and Almost-April-me do not have the same hair opinions, if so.
I know this is how Ernest got into the household to begin with, but that was with one of our heirs. Move along, Miss Maid.
Look now you can see his elf ears!
For now I’m going to be working at getting two of Gold’s other skills up to level 10 since that’s like… his actual in-game goal. Starting with writing because it’s the highest one he has other than social networking.
The adults had gone away last chapter, and when the kids came back from school they learned that they’d apparently done a bad job of keeping house.
In fairness, though, a maid comes and cleans after they leave for school. : P
But the game doesn’t think of that so we had to wait for all of the girls to get scolded (grounded, even??) and then had to let them all off the hook.
Because prom is tonight.
Gold: Okay, I drove you all over so you should all have full needs… have fun, and remember: no boys.
Thallium: I’m pretty sure the only boys in town are elementary schoolers.
Gold: … okay good.
I remembered to put them in formalwear before they went into the school because I’m the best simmer.
Even better idea. Have Gold stay on the lot so none of the kids get picked up after curfew! I’m brilliant! Gold can even skill with something portable like the sketchpad thing.
So. Prom news:
Mercury won Prom Queen, and luckily only has sisters so she doesn’t have to have a weird ‘the prom king is my brother like a Targaryen’ dance.
She instead has a awkward chicken dance with Elizabeth, who I think is officially Her Girl.
Poor Lead is less lucky in love.
Then Thallium gets wooed by a girl named Cathleen.
And Lead hooks up with a girl named Colleen.
See! No boys!
Lead: I just realized we’ve never used this fancy fireplace in our lives.
Now just pray it doesn’t set fire to our fancy irreplaceable vases.
Thallium you were supposed to go home with your dad.
Thallium: Yeah but I had to stop and figure out what made Cathleen so attracted to me. I think it’s my muscles!
You’ve never worked out a day in your life.
And, yes, she did get picked up by the police.
Gold: I can’t believe you would be out after curfew!
Dude you’re the one who DROVE AWAY.
It was his fault so I let her off the hook. And also groundings are annoying.
Gold: … you do know I’m a ‘he’ right?
Oh look it’s Erin! I didn’t think you showed up this chapter.
Guy: And so that’s why all of this empty lawn you have here could be better used as a vegetable garden.
Erin: Why are you telling me this at 3 AM.
Lead says she actually got photographic evidence of a ghost.
I don’t know, though. It looks photoshopped to me? I can tell by the pixels.
Ernest: Either of you care to help out or are you just going to kiss while I’m trying to fix this thing?
Ernest: … okay but I’m afraid to actually touch this newfangled computer so I’m just gonna wave the screwdriver in front of it and hope it gets better.
After school, all the girls invite all their girls so we can actually get a look at them. And secure them before they run off with someone else and/or get old.
This one’s Colleen. I gave her better hair.
This one’s Cathleen. I gave her better clothes.
And we’ve met Elizabeth already. Neither her hair or clothes were The Worst so I let her be, although now that I’m looking again I think I’ll dye her hair to something less green.
Commence the triple date.
Lead: You’re so cute, I just wanna kiss you.
Thallium: *sees that her sister is outdoing her* Um, uh… MARRY ME?
Aw, young love.
Mercury follows suit with Elizabeth soon after.
Thallium: Shit, I’m losing. Um, uh…
Thallium: You look like a clown!
Cathleen: … we have to work on your flirting.
Thallium finally gets her first kiss.
Mercury: Be my girlfriend?
Thallium: Quick, be my girlfriend too.
Cathleen: Sure. Just don’t call me a clown anymore?
Lead pulled Colleen into another room, probably to avoid her sisters.
Lead: Want some flowers I stole from my great-grandpa’s inventory?
Colleen: Do I ever!
Lead: Now do you wanna be my girlf–
Jack: Yes! I get to celebrate my birthday with my daughter and her gal pal!
Lead: … kind of wanna just ignore him right now…
Colleen: Aw, it’s his birthday though…
Lead: YAY DAD
Colleen: Happy birthday, Mr. Mendeleev!
Jack: I’m glad you’ve made such a good friend, sweetheart. 🙂
Lead: Quick, while he’s fixing his hair. Wanna be my girlfriend?
I could not agree more, game. Everything went pretty smoothly. And we had very little talk about art this chapter! Truly twenty-gay-teen is blessing our family.
