This chapter may be a bit/lot longer than other ones, since I’m trying to get everything done before Generations!
Don’t worry, Zhan isn’t cheating on Ellie. Having compatible signs is just a really easy way to get friendship scores up high enough for police questioning. Following someone into the bathroom and asking is also a really easy way to give him the wrong idea, but that’s another matter.
Also, why does Zhan have to get all buddy-buddy with this man to question him? I’ve never been questioned by the police… okay, once, but that was in sixth grade… and I don’t think the police officers have the time to get to know you when tracking down a murder suspect. Name, age, occupation, maybe. Whether you’re a Leo or a Capricorn? I don’t think so.
Guy: The purple one?
Zhan: The pink one.
Guy: That’s a boy?
Zhan: Please answer the question.
Baby Lithium, last (planned) baby of Generation One, is born. She’s the first girl to be born into the legacy, and also the first non-genius born in. Her traits are excitable and insane, which I found funny because lithium is used in medicines that treat things like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression.
As my brother said, the game KNOWS.
Lithium is also looking to be one of my favorites this generation, because she’s starting out with two of the traits of one of my favorite sims, Clementine Charming.
Jamar: Must kill… must kill… must kill…
After Lithium’s birth, the Mendeleev’s got a call from school telling them that both Hydrogen and Helium were on the verge of failing class. This, of course, sent Zhan into a RAGE. Hydrogen was in the other room with the hospital on speed dial, figuring that his dad was either goint to beat the atoms out of Ellie or have a heart attack.
Snobby Alto Kid: Good. We have to keep that gay fairy kid and his brother out of our school.
But I thought Sunset Valley was a happy place free of discrimination!While the boys successfully… sneaked? snuck?… past the wall of homophobic children, Ellie tries to fix the tub so it will never break again. I thought the lucky trait makes things break less, but I’m not seeing a difference with even two lucky sims in the house.
And this is where WordPress decides to be stupid and murders half of my post. Gah. So if this seems rushed and angry, it’s because it is. Stupid WordPress.
Here she is. She has the same nose as her brothers, I think, but her mom’s mouth. I’m upset that none of the babies have red hair, but maybe if Ellie is close enough to her LTW before she turns elder I’ll try for a ginger baby.
And this is where WordPress is stupid and deletes the remainder or my post. Again. WTF, WordPress?
Zhan shouldn’t be able to complain about Lithi not being a genius if he can’t even find the toilet, though.
Hydrogen: Can you say ‘Mom and Dad need to focus on their careers so they can feed us rather than making new mouths to feed?’
Lithium: This legacy chapter was brought to you by the shape ‘square’ and the color ‘blue’.
And Ellie chooses the perfect place to have her birthday, right next to the filthy toilet.
Helium: I’m trying to work here, Mom.
Zhan: Happy birthday, honey!
Helium: This is unhygenic and I’m going to get some horrible bacteris from this.
Hydrogen: I have the most embarrassing family ever.
After the party, the Mendeleevs get ready for Generations.
