Okay so having a new job AND working on my thesis AND having to go and get the super-special CD drive before I can play my game = very delayed in posting. But we’re back!
Also my computer updated and now I can actually uninstall stuff if things go wonky. Probably. Yay!
Mercury: I feel different?
Maybe because you are now officially our heir? Maybe because you are on a new computer and cats suddenly exist now? Maybe because the skin CC I had is no longer available so I had to switch to a base game skin?
Probably the last one.
Mercury wanted to visit a cafe to celebrate. So she ran all the way there. No taxi? Nothing?
Then she got run over so it’s a good thing we have a spare.
That $60 French Toast had better be good.
Couldn’t find anything else to do in France for the last few hours (no easels or sculpting stations) so thought maybe she could read.
But someone stole ALL THE BOOKS IN FRANCE.
Whatever, time to head home.
Thallium: If we merge together we can ALL be the heir!
Unfortunately a lot of my CC didn’t make the switch. But fortunately, we were going to remake the house anyway since we’re starting a new generation.
Let’s just find somewhere to send the family while I fix up a house…
… oh. I completely forgot that all my extra worlds are gone right now. Probably the only reason I could open the Mendeleev file on this computer was because the save file was in France or something. So all the buildings and stuff that came with the world are gone too.
So I guess we’re switching towns.
Maid: I can’t believe I get to work for the Mendeleevs!
Not for long.
So the idea behind this generation’s house is that I didn’t feel like building.
So the idea behind this generation’s house is that I really didn’t feel like building.
Thallium and Lead got sent out to make their own way in the world. We’ll see them later maybe.
GUY ON A HORSE.
Dont’ fuck this up for me, horse.
I neglected to assign beds and came to regret it.
Gold please go find a bed that’s not occupied by your adult daughter. The ghosts think it’s kind of weird.
Jack I swear we haven’t even had this house for 24 hours.
He puts it out handily while the firefighter watches.
Firefighter: I’m kind of attracted to dead people so I was kind of hoping you’d all die.
Since we know no one in town, I send Mercury to the festival to scope out potential partners.
Then I saw there was an eating contest so I sent Mercury over there. Not for reasons just for fun.
Lead’s here too!
And Lead wins!
Mercury: At least I won the contest that actually mattered.
Lead: I will jam a hot dog in your windpipe.
Mercury finally met someone she was interested in when I sent her back the next morning, but unfortunately that someone was extremely old.
And extremely taken.
Both of those things can be changed, though, so we’ll keep him in mind if nothing else turns up.
Mercury, he’s kind of cute.
Mercury: And kind of a teen, maybe? He looks short.
Romantic options were available so apparently not. Mercury’s not into him but I’ll mark him down as having potential.
Mercury: What if we somehow turned one of these horses into a sim…
Horse: Fuck off lady.
Oh wait! I have seasons installed so maybe we can do the internet dating thing!
Lead has a profile up too.
What happens if we send a message????
We got a message from this guy Barrington. There wasn’t a little ‘ooh you’re attractive’ message popping up but Mercury did roll a wish to know his sign.
Right before he had to head to work.
Mercury: I like him. He’s got a nice ass.
I will… keep that in mind.
