Selenium’s Little Bro

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.29.22 PM

This chapter picks up right where the last one left off. After turning the tourist into a toad, Zinc was hungry. So she ate an apple she already had from summoning them so much. Honestly she doesn’t do it as much as any of the test witches I’ve played. Usually, when left to their own devices, I come back to find about 20 apples in their pockets.

Zinc wanted to cast spells on this girl, so I let her. Because the higher levels of witchcraft are still a mystery and she’s got like 5 hours until work starts.

This other girl is a witch, so I cast spells on her seeing if we could start some sort of magical duel. I can’t find an interaction for it anywhere, just like I can’t find a ‘hunt’ interaction with Doris. : /

No idea why Zinc is talking about an old guy in a fortune-teller-headscarf-thing here. Maybe she’s hoping that’s who the witch will fall in love with?

Lacy: Hey, floor sushi! I’m pregnant.

Sushi: That’s great, but Zinc is accidentally cheating on her husband right now.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.31.39 PM

Zinc: Eh, no.

Needless to say, the love spell backfired. I don’t know why it counts as going behind Tyson’s back when she’s rejecting the interaction, though.

And then she wanted to cast a haunting curse. I think it summons a ghost to haunt a sim, but it also says it has bad consequences for the caster if it backfires.

It didn’t backfire, but it didn’t seem to have an effect on the sim we cast it on, either.

Someone found the hot tub! In the middle of the night on a full moon when the zombies are about to attack.

Zinc was on level 8 last chapter, but she’s close to getting to level 9. Since it’s her day off, I decided we could try to befriend her boss and see if he’d give us a promotion.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.42.04 PM

I don’t remember his name, but…

Bad Zinc’s boss! No flirting with pregnant Lacy!

Step one: cast love spell on him and go up to talk to him.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.43.26 PM

Step two: reject advances so you’re good friends, but not romantic interests.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.44.20 PM

Apparently being hit on two times and rejecting both means that you’re ‘exploring your options.’ : P

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.44.39 PM

She got the promotion by the way. Yay!

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.47.27 PM

Gayby: I’m so happy to be alive and the world is AMAZING.

Vaughn: Quiet down you! Let me get some shut eye!

Susan: The world is rotten.

Selenium is confounced by the peg box.

Hey, virtuoso. Maybe the xylophone would help you out a bit more. : P

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.50.36 PM

She manages to get to level one of the xylophone before it’s time for her to grow up.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 3.53.31 PM


Selenium: No one saw that.

Oddly enough, when I she was a toddler I thought being snobby would suit her. And she rolled snob.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.17.09 PM

Disciplined, virtuoso snob. She’s the girl who plays first chair in band, is always on pitch, gets all the solos, and have fun in community college I’M going to JULLIARD.

Selenium: I can’t help that I’m better than everyone else.

Baby bump pic.

This picture makes me laugh. After my first view of Selenium, I kind of assumed it would be hard to make her smile.

As to why she’s a princess, I read that dressing a sim in the corresponding outfit after they have a dream gives them a ‘dream come true’ moodlet and I wanted to try it out.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.25.05 PM

Selenium: My loyal subjects, we shall defeat the dragon… through SONG! It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone, and I need you nowwwww…

Her favorite is roots music.

Selenium went to the bathroom and then her queue started lining up with people in the house trying to talk to her.

Selenium: I can’t help that people love me.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.26.41 PM

Bobo was the one who ended up winning and cancelling the others out of her queue.

Bobo: Hi! I’m Bobo and I’m your best friend forever!

Selenium: Well now I can’t hold the tea party I was planning. : /

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.27.06 PM

Selenium: Come, Edward. You will have to do.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.27.36 PM

Cute interaction is cute, although I’m honestly a bit disappointed that the children don’t actually sit down and play tea party with the doll.

Also, that it’s a juice box and not real tea. Or a toy tea set, at least.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.27.54 PM

Bobo: You’re a great cook!

… for getting a juice box from the fridge?

Selenium: I wonder how much I can sell this doll for on the Internet.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.28.19 PM

I wanted to see if the ghost potion would work on kids. It did. 🙂

Bobo: What happened to you?

Selenium: I died of old age, of course.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.30.29 PM

Selenium wanted to take an art class, so I happily obliged. I also had her sign up for ballet lessons, because that’s basically the closest to having an activity relating to music she can get before she becomes a teen.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.31.49 PM

Selenium abandoned Bobo, but she left him at the nicest place she could think of.

Selenium: The theatre.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.32.13 PM

Baby’s coming!

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.32.57 PM

When Selenium comes home, I notice that Susan’s over here by himself.

Susan: I’m running away from home! No one understands me!

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.33.11 PM

Vaughn and Gayby don’t seem to care.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.33.23 PM

Lacy: Oh, hello, Selenium. I’m going to go give birth. Do your homework and don’t get into trouble.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.33.35 PM

Selenium: Have fun, mother. Just don’t be disappointed when the new baby is inferior to me.

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.34.00 PM


Lacy: Hey, I don’t look like that. >: /

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.34.55 PM

Remember when I wanted Helium to be a girl because he’d be dressed in pink? And I wanted Chlorine to be a girl because it sounded like a girl’s name? Well, this is our lovely little girl Bromine.

I’m sticking to my original plan and calling her Bro for short. Hooray for breaking gender conventions?

Screen Shot 2013-06-08 at 4.35.42 PM

Bro is an excitable heavy sleeper, meaning it takes her a while to get going in the morning, but once she’s up she’ll be running at 110% energy. Her favorite color is lime, so I don’t have to redecorate the nursery!
