Welcome to another chapter of the Mendeleev Legacy. My plan is to get this finished before I head off to college again. On the bright side (for this legacy, at least) my roommate is going to be studying online this year, so I’ll probably have more time for sims since I won’t have to worry about waking her up in the morning and whatnot. Possibly. Maybe.
I come back to the game to find Arsenic yelling at Bromine for breaking curfew, and grounding her.
Bromine: What about my schoolwork?
Arsenic: If you’re breaking curfew, you’re already a lost cause anyway.
A lot of ghosts out tonight.
The adults have an opportunity for free vacation, which I happily take. Not so the teens can throw any sort of wild party… so that Bromine can ACTUALLY GO TO SCHOOL.
This isn’t even the craziest the punishments go in the sims, since I read in one of the patch updates that they fixed it so sims couldn’t starve to death while on timeout… O__o
Bromine sneaks out of the house to go to school, and what does Krypton do? Stay home and play computer games…
Krypton: Like you’re one to talk.
Hey… I’m not skipping classes at least…
Lois is the only kid who doesn’t want to throw a wild party while the adults are away.
Lois: I think I’m just going to steal standardized tests!
I’m not sure, but I think stealing those tests would be counted as a federal crime? Or a legitimate crime, unlike inviting a few friends over to the house. : /
Bob Newbie came to the house.
And Bromine has the ‘sneaking sickness’ in which a sim will continuously sneak around and never walk normally again after sneaking out of the house once.
And now I’m glad that she’s not heir, because it’s annoying.
Lois takes the time to dance with Bob, since the other two teens are sleeping through the party they wanted to throw. : /
Joffrey: And one, and two! Work those glutes!
Joffrey: Got to get in shape for the lovely specimen of a lady they invited into the house…
Laurel: I feel left out.
After Lois goes to bed, this being a school night, Laurel heads over to the fireplace and plays with it while Bob watches her. So I’m guessing she’s got the daredevil trait somewhere in there.
She continues doing this repeatedly despite the fact that she keeps getting burned.
Laurel: Owwie! … maybe if I tried that again…
You’ll get the same result, dear.
Bob: I think it’d be nice if you got a portrait painted of yourself…
Joffrey: And no one’s paying attention to me.
Bob then went to watch tv.
TV Guy: ALIENS.
While Laurel passed out by the fireplace.
Arsenic comes home early along with the others and proceeds to yell at EVERYONE.
Arsenic: Grounded. Again.
Bromine: We had TWO PEOPLE over!
Lois: Damn… television’s broke. : /
Arsenic: YOU TOO, YOUNG LADY.
Lois: I didn’t even do anything! That you know of.
The next day I had to send everyone to the park so the kids could go to school, all of them being grounded.
Lacy and Selenium have a game of catch while they’re at it.
Krypton: You know you don’t have to sneak around like that, right?
Bromine: I’m tired of you judging me, superboy!
I then made Lacy track everyone down and let them off the hook so they could go to prom.
The tradition of leaving half-prepared food on the counter in favor of making new food continues.
The gnomes have stopped hanging together so much. Gayby stays by the graves…
Biffy sleeps by the train set…
Susan naps by the toilet…
I couldn’t find Joffrey that time.
Lois: Hey, would you mind moving so I can get up and eat?
Krypton: Just let me finish this question…
It took him a while.
Lois: It’s the *Selenium Mendeleev* theater. : /
They then sold the $500 mirrors they got from the field trip.
That is all.
Arsenic needs fishing skill for his job, too, and there’s no book (as far as I’m aware) that he can read for easy skill gain. So he’s out gaining some skill points.
Bro likes her videogames.
Bro: Geez. Maybe you should put down the controller and pick up a frying pan or something. You probably can’t screw up anything as much as this game, ’cause you play like ass.
Ellie: Do you kiss your mother with that mouth, missy?
Bro: No, actually.
Bro: Psh. You’re so old you probably think Steampunk’s still cool.
Ellie: It IS still cool. : /
You tell her, Ellie.
Next time is prom. But we all know who our heir is going with… or do we?
