Last time, Bromine (Bro for short) was born, and Selenium grew up to become a music snob.
She’s also practically an honorary night owl sim, with how late she wants to stay up. It is eleven o’clock on a school night, young lady. Go to bed.
Selenium: But the slide is more fun!
Nitrogen came to haunt, and she apparently does not approve of Selenium’s bedroom.
Nitrogen: Back in my day, we didn’t have magic mirrors or fancy toys. We slept in bunk beds with our respective twins. And we liked it!
We bought the diner because Selenium and a couple others in the household wanted it. We haven’t renamed it yet, though. I was too busy watching the elderly witch flirting with a werewolf.
Lacy got an opportunity to upgrade a shower. We took it because it was from Sidheag (I think) and it’s nice to help out a fellow Mendeleev.
Arsenic: I see we have a new shower in the middle of the front entrance.
I see you’re actually in the green for your job performance. For once. Finally.
Speaking of opportunities, Selenium got one to try out for the lead role in the dance recital or something like that.
Her little tutu is adorable. I wish I could change the color, though.
Selenium: I got the part. Obviously.
She got some ballet slippers for being the lead. I’m keeping them in her room.
Remember how I had Nitrogen chained to various instruments from the time she wanted to master all of them for her LTW?
Zinc is steadily mastering the instruments on her own. I think she only has piano at this point.
Selenium’s a good kid. She sits down and does her homework on her own. I’m pretty sure this is her everyday wear. The outfit she chose before? Formal. I have no idea why.
She looks so happy showing off her pirouette.
Lacy’s pregnant again. This will be the last kid of the legacyyyyyyy!!!
Selenium had a field trip to the bistro.
I don’t know why I took this.
She’s not a conventionally ‘cute’ kid or anything, but I like her. She looks different.
Nooo! Stop flirting with your mother-in-law in front of the baby! Poor Bro is going to be scarred for life!
So when the vampire doctor from last chapter calls Doris up for a date, of course I make her go. Let her get rid of those urges with someone who’s not married to her daughter.
Bro grew up to be pretty cute. We’ll see how she looks as she ages. Right now Selenium is more interesting to me in both looks and personality, but Bro is also at a disadvantage with being just a toddler.
Speaking of Selenium… it is nearly midnight. Go to bed.
The bubbles are sad.
I discovered later that the sad-face bubbles happen when the thing is empty, but before that I just thought this was bizarre.
The dining room right through the door is empty, but Selenium would prefer to stand in the kitchen and eat.
Doris lets off flirting with Tyson long enough to help Bro with the xylophone.
Zinc invited her boss back. I was hoping to ask for another promotion and get her LTW finished with, but that wasn’t an option. I think we got a raise, though.
Selenium: You didn’t give birth during my recital. I’m impressed.
Lacy: So am I.
Doris stayed home to flirt with Zinc’s boss.
Bro stayed home because one is required to wear a shirt in an elementary school.
Lacy: I could have a baby and minute now.
Zinc: That’s nice. I’m going to go play Whack-a-Gnome.
Glad to see she cares about her impending grandchild.
Selenium: Thanks for reading to me, mom, but for some reason I decided to go to bed while I was already hungry, and having a cookbook read to me isn’t helping matters.
Lacy goes into labor next to the bubble machine.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s… a boy!
His name is Krypton.
