Chapter 28: Nightfall

Hello all!  I’m feeling a bit more chipper than I was last week.  I went to this amazing concert last week with 2 bands I really like (Xandria and Sonata Arctica).  Unfortunately, I got sick on the way home even though I only drank water and Diet Coke.  Strobe lights, they can make a person get sick right?

 

Week 18 – Day 120:

Virgil’s 91 and Serefina has 5 days left.

Oh my goodness, Serefina’s baby bump.

Oh my goodness, Serefina’s baby bump.

After consummating their marriage, Serefina and Brady have a little one on the way.  As per usual, this means it’s time to install a new expansion: this time, Late Night!

Thrust into the spotlight.

Thrust into the spotlight.

This expansion comes with A LOT of community buildings.  I had trouble choosing, but I ended up adding 7 Dance Clubs, 4 Apartment Complexes, and the Acting career rabbithole.  I also tore down the Gymnasium because it doesn’t work, and the Lucky Palms Casino because I forgot it existed.

Fancy new feature: I rented out the dance club Waylon’s Haunt for Brady’s birthday.  It says it’s a Dive Bar but it’s actually pretty nice.

One last hug between brothers.

One last hug between brothers.

Unfortunately, Virgil passed away.  Oh, the second heir has passed on!  Oooh, simulated-life goes on though.  Ghost-Keri also disappeared, I guess she was just waiting for Virgil.

“Virgil was a great thief.”

“Virgil was a great thief.”

Prometheus went back in time and killed a mastodon, which accidentally created the Morse family in modern-day Lucky Palms.  I’m okay with that, but somehow it also made Dara Dent cheat on Prometheus.  Very uncool!  Also Niobe got promoted up to Rare Medium (8).

Day 121:

Case #4: The Cyberspace Double-Cross.

Case #4: The Cyberspace Double-Cross: Crime on the net.  What is this world coming to..?  I had to deal with it today.  The client, Piere Something-or-Other, knew Cletus Who-Cares was promoted suspiciously.  Stolen laptop documents.  Ol’ Cletus is a novice at hacking, dare I say a hack?  His password was “sloppy”, his firewall just a Bic lighter.  Pierre was seething after I told him, but what can you do?

STRANGER DANGER!

STRANGER DANGER!

Glitch time: Brady kidnapped somebody’s toddler!  For realz!! Apparently if you teleport when you’re holding them they end up on your lot.  Whoops!  (If you’re wondering why Brady suddenly has a moustache, I was trying to give him a Private Investigator disguise.)

Joe’s given the very best mission of all time: the Omni Plant mission!!!  Unfortunately I don’t enough quality Steak yet, but as soon as I do..

Brady’s trying to hear the new baby.

Brady’s trying to hear the new baby.

In other news, Jena (from last post) are Jeremy are engaged.  I’m hoping this means she’s staying away from Zachery for good nows.

Day 122:

Case #5: The Dirty Cleaner

Case #5: The Dirty Cleaner: Using the wrong toothbrush.  What is this world coming to..?  Poor little Jeri, wide-eyed little child, convinced someone has been backwashing her kit.  I don’t have many leads, so I bark up the first tree I spot.  A small bribe to loosen the gums.  But it was all a sham!  Nobody’s borrowing her bitty brush, and I’m the one left with egg all over my face.

"Can they see me?"

“Can they see me?”

Brady was promoted up to Small Claims Investigator (2) and got a magnifying glass.  I still can’t figure out how to use it though.

Sadly, Dr. Joe Matlapin-Hudson passed on.

Sadly, Dr. Joe Matlapin-Hudson passed on.

Sadly but truly, our resident doctor Joe died at the age of 95.  This means no Omni Plants, I lost the lot’s Gardener, and no more bastard childrens.  Also Jena, Terry (Virgil’s boss), and Edith (Pascal’s mother) all died.

Meanwhile, Prometheus was exploring a cave when he got chased by fishmen guards.

Day 123:

Yep, Serefina gave birth.  And as is the Wolfe fashion, she had twins!  The babies are called Hyperion (Evil and Athletic) and Deo (Evil and Insane).

Serefina going into labour.

Serefina going into labour.

Prometheus’ lifetime wish is to create 3 monsters, but I haven’t had any luck getting the Simbot-building opportunity yet.  In EAxis’ unquestionable wisdom, summoning a Mummy counts as creating a monster*, so Prometheus uses Virgil’s collection of broken canopic jars to do that.

*For whatever reason, they don’t count resurrecting a Ghost, siring a Vampire, or creating any of the other occult types. Why? Just because!

Niobe's handcrafted sarcophagus. Kajaptah Larimoropolese, the mummy.

Her name is Kajaptah Larimoropolese, and Prometheus thinks she’s hot despite being an ancient decrepit corpse wrapped in bandages.  He also got promoted up to Experienced Innovator (5).

Niobe’s asked to sneak 5 spirits into the Criminal Headquarters to scare them or something.

How unlucky the roof collapsed in the exact location this Sim was standing!

How unlucky the roof collapsed in the exact location this Sim was standing!

Serefina had to deal with an Earthquake at work.  It was quite scary, at first I thought a meteor had killed somebody.  Basically there were three different lots with fire emergencies, and she got to rescue 3 Sims.

In sadish news, Pascal’s father died, just 1 day after his wife.

Day 124:

Check out the unexplainable shadows in this shot.

Check out the unexplainable shadows in this shot.

Okay, so Mummy Sims are SLOW.  So very slow!!  Kajaptah wants to get into the Cooking career but I read that mummies catch on fire easily so I put her in the Gardening career.  After selling 1 day’s worth of moneytree she is promoted to level 7 immediately.  She’s okay for standing-still projects too like Mining or Time-Travel.

Case #6: The Literary Thief

Case #6: The Literary Thief:  Stealing from the library.  What is this world coming to..?  Christian Tony-Stark believes Pascal is behind it.  Dirty deeds done dirt cheap, I dive into his trash and warily peruse his incoming mail.  The receipt for “Library Hacking Software” is a dead giveaway.  And that my friends, is why you should always burn your garbage.

Now THAT is a great fake moustache!

Now THAT is a great fake moustache!

Tristan beat up a bouncer at a dance club, as you do.  I think it’s weird that Virgil died and Tristan is still alive, because Virgil was more Athletic and also a Martial Arts master, while Tristan eats junkfood and spent most of his life journalisming.

Cascadia's an elder now too.

Cascadia’s an elder now too.

Also Prometheus was nearly caught by the Keeper of Time at a cyberbar neopoetry slam.

Day 125:

Serefina desperately tries to put out the fire with orange Gatorade.

Serefina desperately tries to put out the fire with orange Gatorade.

Well, Serefina was promoted to Fire Chief and has reached the top of the career.  This means she gets her own personal Firetruck and Firealarm so that she can work from home.  Sadly, she’s nowhere near complete her LTW, but we’ll work on it.

How dramatic!

How dramatic!

Have I mentioned I’m sending Prometheus to the Consignment Store every day?  They have so much useful garbage there (Gems, Metals, Gnomes, Books), and he’s been slowly selling Virgil’s Deathfish collection, Cascadia’s failed bottles of nectar, and his own vomit-inducing hygienators.  All this means a lot of money, but he also earned an Impressive reputation for his sales.  Also the Military wants Prometheus to give them some hygienators for some anti-virus thing they’re doing.

Niobe’s gotten promoted up to Outstanding Occultist (9), which is just 1 step below her LTW.  Lucky her!

Whoops, Ginny Shaw threw a party and I forgot.  Oh well, Niobe, Tristan, Prometheus crashed it.  Also there’s a ghost haunting, so I got that to deal with too.

“Must… not… crush…. baby… …”

“Must… not… crush…. baby… …”

Kajaptah nearly got eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex in her time-travelling exploits.  Also, Edith Morel passed away.  Again, somehow.  The notifications don’t lie!

Day 126:

Serefina being knighted.  "Oooh, a gift!"

Yep, Serefina got awarded the Key to the City.  It’s very pretty.  Also that lady Sim named Allyson DiPaolo is possibly the mayor of Lucky Palms? err, maybe she’s The Keymaker?

“Tristan, World-Renowned Journalist”

“Tristan, World-Renowned Journalist”

Tristan got his very first invitation to a party.  It read something like this: “Dear Tristan, this is your best friend Silas Sparks-Diwan.  I’m sure you know who I am, since we are BFFs and everything.  Please attend my awesome swimming party on Sunday the 126th at 4:00pm.  Please RSVP AQAP TYVM.”  Unfortunately, Tristan was 96 and he passed away.  It was time.

On happier news, Hyperion and Deo are toddlers now.

On happier news, Hyperion and Deo are toddlers now.

Prometheus handed in the hygineators, also got to see some restricted military weapons.  Also Kajaptah found an underground Stonehenge.

So it’s been 7 days with Late Night installed, and there’s still no celebrities.  From my research, there’s no way for my Sims to become famous without meeting someone famous, so hopefully soon!

Chapter 27: An Expectant Departure

Hello all!  I hope you are having a good Labour Day Weekend (if you celebrate this holiday).  We’ve just come back from up north visiting my grandparents for my grandpa’s 86th birthday.  There was some confusion but overall I’d say they had a really good time.  I was so happy to see them!

 

Week 16 – Day 112:

Is it just me or did he get a lot more dreamier?

Is it just me or did he get a lot more dreamier?

It’s Prometheus’ birthday to Young Adult fiction, and he gets the Slob trait.  Boy, can I relate to disorganization!  Oh, and he blew up somebody’s car at the scrapyard.  I’m kindof surprised, he’s never been charged because he’s blown up Sims, furniture, and vehicles. Oh what am I saying, the only laws in TS3 are “Don’t work at the Warehouse!” and “Don’t make crank calls!”

Hehe, Sims on trampolines!  So entertaining!

Hehe, Sims on trampolines!  So entertaining!

At the party Joe gave his daughter Sofia some experimental medication and she literally burst into flames.  Also Ghost Keri is still hanging around the Legacy House, I think she’s planning on staying for a while.

Niobe with a chainsaw is just terrifying.

Niobe with a chainsaw is just terrifying.

Oh my gosh, Zachery and Jena Vasquez-Claremont are back together again!  Niobe’s gotta work her magic if she wants to keep her cutie.  Also she was promoted up to the Ghost Grabber position.

Well, who else are you gonna call?

Well, who else are you gonna call?

Week 17 – Day 113:

Virgil’s 84 and Serefina has 12 days left before Adulthood.

You're doing it wrong!

You’re doing it wrong!

Glitch time: Serefina is sick.  Not in a physical way, but as a virtual person she has developed a virtual sickness.  Every time I try to give her a command the game literally freezes.  I thought at first it was clothing-related, but now I have no idea.  Right now my theory is there is a mod that is affecting her and nobody else..?  Here’s a post explaining the problem completely.

It took 8 days, but Tristan finished his masterpiece and it’s worth a whopping §75,006. He gets the wish to write another but I have no idea how long he’s going to be with us, so he’ll just stick to smaller books.

Niobe and Zachery kiss. .. well, sort-of.

Niobe and Zachery kiss. .. well, sort-of.

Niobe convinced Zachery to dump Jena again, and even managed to sneak in her first kiss.  Now they’re officially a thing, right?

Day 114:

“Hey kid, stop kicking me!”

“Hey kid, stop kicking me!”

Serefina managed to save her first 2 lives (just 28 to go!), which earned her the Firefighter’s Trophy of Honour and promoted to Backdraft Specialist (level 8).

Pascal was fast-tracked up to Agricultural Mastermind (level 10).  He literally just sold bags of Moneytree the whole time, because I’ve been stockpiling Fruits and Vegetables since Day 1.  In case of apocalypse or something.

“Well, this is awkward.”

“Well, this is awkward.”

Rosalyn gave birth to Joe’s latest child: Pawel.  Pawel?  Really?  Also somebody at City Hall banged their head on their desk and it’s up to Joe to save their life.

Day 115:

Serefina breaking into somebody’s house.

Serefina breaking into somebody’s house.

It kindof sucks that Serefina has the unlucky trait, because she keeps getting small house fires and such at work. She needs to rescue more Sims or she’ll never accomplish her LTW.

Virgil is building up a lot of physical capital with his Deathfish collection.

Virgil is building up a lot of physical capital with his Deathfish collection.

The Supermarket aquarium is too full of fish, they need Virgil to come over and de-stock it.

Jena, if you value your ridiculous outfit, run away from Niobe!

Jena, if you value your ridiculous outfit, run away from Niobe!

Good grief, even though Zachery kissed Niobe he’s gotten back together with Jena.  AGAIN!!! Now, where’s that chainsaw..

Apparently the politician Joe was supposed to treat died.  I guess that’s negligence or something. Bad Joe!, bad doctoring!

Prometheus on fire. Again. *sigh*

Prometheus on fire. Again. *sigh*

Also Prometheus mastered the Inventing skill, but there’s still some inventions he can’t build.

Day 116:

Coming this summer. One woman battles to rescue her family from a raging inferno, in: FIRE FIGHTER

Coming this summer. One woman battles to rescue her family from a raging inferno, in: FIRE FIGHTER

Cascadia has only 2 days left until she ages up, so this is the last chance for her and Pascal to have that baby.  Unfortunately, her pregnancy signs their eviction notice because the household is already at maximum capacity.  But not to fret, they still get a Moving Out party!

Ahh, these two!

Ahh, these two!

Meanwhile, in the C-Plot, Prometheus built himself a Time Machine and flung tossed threw himself into the future.  The text describing his adventures are very funny, one of them describes Jack Shepard from Mass Effect defeating those giant-squid-robots.  He also got the Medal of Genius his ingenuity.

Swat a mosquito in the past, it might create a world without donuts.

Swat a mosquito in the past, it might create a world without donuts.

Day 117:

Prometheus continues exploring the future, and runs into those bad-ass robots from Terminator 2.  Also, why don’t the Future-Sims have Teleporter technology?  The Wolfe family have 3 Teleporters on their lot alone!

Niobe got promoted to Creep Seeker (level 7).  She’s getting closer to finishing her LTW, then maybe she’ll get married with Zachery.

Cascadia letting her brother know she’s pregnant.

Cascadia letting her brother know she’s pregnant.

Sadly, it’s time for Cascadia and Pascal to move into their own little bungalow at 232 Sedona Lane.  I’m hoping they have a wonderful child and create their own little family tree.

Cascadia and Pascal moving out. Cascadia and Pascal's new house.

However, now that we’ve freed up some room, Serefina asks Brady Davies to get married.  And she does it in the most romantic spot I could find: a dark nightclub with neon blacklights.  Naturally he said yes.

What's more romantic than a glowing yellow jumpsuit?

What’s more romantic than a glowing yellow jumpsuit?

Tristan wrote (what I assume to be) his last book, “End of the Line”.

Day 118:

I’ve been gathering up Gems and Metals for a while now and just throwing them in a treasure chest, but now Serefina’s going to start getting them cut and smelt in order to complete the collection.

Hey, good to see Ezekiel's still hanging about!

Hey, good to see Ezekiel’s still hanging about!

It took some convincing, but Niobe and Zachery are now dating, Officially official.  Let’s just say they sealed the deal.. Who could resist Niobe when she’s in a good mood?

V-card is cashed in!

V-card is cashed in!

The Illuminati in the 34th century want Prometheus to give them his time machine!  Oh noes!  Prometheus discovered the very last invention, the Miner.  It’s somewhat hit or miss whether you find anything good, and it usually pisses off everyone on the entire lot.

The Miner in action. “HELLLLLLLPPPPP!”

Day 119:

Cascadia was visiting the house when she went into labour, so Tristan took her over to the hospital.  The newest additions to the Wolfe family are called Lewis and Rene.  (Rene is a boy.)

Mother and uncle with the newborn babies.

Mother and uncle with the newborn babies.

Jena has finally thrown in the towel and started dating Zachery’s brother, Jeremy. No more sneaking around with Zachery, that is.

Oh, time for the wedding of Serefina and Brady!

Yep, they're married! Yep, they're married!

Apparently Brady has the fashionista LTW, which is pretty lame.  You know what?  He’s going into the Private Investigator career. I’ll just get him the change LTW reward later on.

I really like Prometheus’ new steampunk shirt.

I really like Prometheus’ new steampunk shirt.

Niobe and Prometheus get into a fight, and she beats him up.  Man, she does not like her little brother!

500 years from now, Prometheus finds a book by a modern-day Sim who isn’t an author.  Oh crap, I guess this means time-travel changes the present..?  Also he got promoted up to the Whatchamahickey Designer (level 4).

Case #1: Brady needs to dig up some dirt on Terry Lancaster-Tanner because Rosalyn Lancaster-Tanner thinks she’s working for the mob.  Well, yeah, everyone knew that already.  Case closed!  Brady also blackmails Terry for some extra cash.

Oh Brady, so adorkable!

Oh Brady, so adorkable!

Oh, and apparently Joe has the hots for his daughter’s half-sister.. I know he’s not technically related to her, but yuck.

Next week expect to see some major changes in the Legacy household!
