A bit of a long post, but I was pushing for Nick’s YA birthday, since it was close.
The first thing that happens is Tyson flirting with Doris of his own accord.
No. That is your mother-in-law.
Tyson: Hey, baby. You turn me into a werewolf? ‘Cause I’m looking to howl your name tonight. 😉
Nick got invited over to this girl’s house again. Her name is Courtney, by the way, and Lacy thinks she soooooo needs a haircut, as she said when she was gossiping with someone.
I’m beginning to think that she’s the only other teen girl besides Lacy.
Arsenic: *rolls wish to learn sign*
Lacy went to an art show and won this adorable thing (she’s in the art club after school) so it hangs in the nursery right now. Bears are similar to wolves, right?
Arsenic comes right home and hugs Lacy because he feels guilty for his cheat-y thoughts. Unlike SOME peopel *cough* Tyson, *cough* he does not act on them.
The ghost-wolf twins had a birthday. This one is Moonlight, I’m about 90% sure of it.
This one is Sidheag. She’s in her sleepwear; her everyday clothing is exactly like Moonlight’s. I thought that they were from an unholy union and therefore ought to look the same for maximum creepiness.
Tyson: So… how about the weather?
Doris: It doesn’t exist.
Zinc: *completely unaware of what went down*
Luckily, Doris aged into an elder soon after. Perhaps this will deter Tyson.
Which is which? Moonlight’s in the front and Sidheag’s in the back. I’ll go over their traits while I’m talking about them.
Moonlight is unlucky, clumsy, and athletic. She went to ballet lessons.
Sidheag is an inappropriate genius who loves the outdoors. She’s in the scouts.
Doris: Shall we talk about the difficulties of legacy life over coffee?
Susan: Look daddy! I’m a plane!
Gayby: It’s no use. He’s depressed, which is the only sensible response to our bleak and meaningless existence.
I FINALLY got the pop-up for prom, so Nick asks Lacy out immediately after school. Too bad Lacy’s birthday is right before prom, so we’ll see what happens.
Moonlight: You were out here making out the whole time? That’s–
Sidheag: –gross. We’ll be the laughingstock of the whole school if–
Moonlight: –anyone finds out–
Sidheag: –we’re related.
Then they did homework together.
Lacy has been hard at work with her painting skill, and is now able to paint still life paintings and all of that. I might have her paint portraits for old time’s sake, although I haven’t been feeling motivated to get that stuff done after I lost the entire museum. : (
Bonehilda’s on a pie-making kick. I think this is the skeleton maid version of a mid-life crisis.
Thought we could use a family outing, so Lacy headed out and took the other kids with her for a picnic at the park.
Moonlight: I really need to pee.
Sidheag: Wow, Moon, I have the exact same need to pee.
Tourist: Damn eighteen-year-olds and their ten-year-old kids. I’ll just play chess by myself like a sensible person.
Everyone left the picnic but Lacy. Forever alone.
So she joins Nick up on the play thing that I don’t know the name of.
Lacy: I just painted a still life a while ago.
Lacy: Why do you look sad?
Arsenic: It’s not a picture of utensils.
Lacy: … okay. I’ll paint a fork next time.
This werewolf man was running around destroying stuff. Thank plumbbob for that towel.
Lacy, stop being forever alone and go home.
Lacy: I thought I could play teeter-totter by myself the same way that man was playing chess. 😦
I tried to get them to hunt as a pack, but there’s no hunting interaction with Doris. So I let them watch the stars instead because she wanted to.
Lacy: How ironic that my birthday is interrupting me from eating birthday cake.
Then she went all Christmassy on me…
Joke’s on the game, because I saved right before. My create-a-sim is working well as long as I haven’t been playing for a long stretch of time before opening it, so I think it’s more my computer getting hot or something? I don’t know how computers work.
Nice face, Lacy. Her final trait was… um….
I’ll get back to you on that.
Lacy as a young adult.
Tyson and Arsenic hugged and I had to snap a picture. It was cute.
Lacy: What are you doing? The school bus is here!
Arsenic: … why are you yelling at me?
Lacy: Because if you don’t show up to school, they won’t let you in prom. AND THEN I CAN’T GO TO MY PROM.
She lets him off the hook right after school, though.
They head off to prom, and Lacy sits outside on the swings because she is a YA and can’t go to prom. But the game tells me she’s in there with Arsenic. Arsenic got his wish to attend prom with Lacy, but Lacy didn’t get her wish to attend prom at all.
Lacy: This blows.
See? The game thinks she’s in there.
Random dude: Hey, you like hanging out by the school late at night? Me too!
Lacy: Um… I was just looking for stuff to paint… *backs away*
Lacy: Hey look. My BOYFRIEND.
Random dude: *creepy stare*
One of the twins passes out because she can’t go to bed without a bedtime story, and sometimes not even then.
If I’m doing an ISBI with this family, which looks to be the case, I am SO issuing some sort of no books on the lot ever rule.
Lacy just mastered painting, which is half of her LTW. The other half is photography, so hopefully the game will let me go to Egypt real quick for the camera. If not, there’s always buy debug.
Arsenic’s prom picture still includes Lacy, somehow.
A secret until the next post. 😉
