Game’s still messing up, and it’s almost July anyway, so I don’t think I’d be finished with this by the time July comes. So… we’ll be having the hiatus I was planning in between this and my next project a bit early. : P I’m going to spend that time working on Camp Nano, doing things that relate to living the actual life I somehow have, and meddling with and testing my game in my free time. If I finish Camp Nano early and my game seems to be working correctly, the legacy might be updated started somewhere mid-July, but otherwise I’ll by doing my best to get everything done in August.
Holy sims, Arsenic made it to work on time! He went to work all by himself! And now he’s close to a promotion! Woot woot.
By the way, does anyone know what this is supposed to say? And it’s not twelve in the game, and sports games don’t happen at 12, so why does the sign say 12? QUESTIONS.
We had money, so we bought out the spa. It was named Mendeleev Manicures. We still need to pay full price, though. Apparently.
Fairy lady: This would make a great picture!
I swear the one’s been a teen forever:
Older werewolf: Your mother is a poodle!
And then the game decided NOPE NOT GONNA SAVE CRASH.
I blame the fact that I had Selenium try to summon someone in the spell book, and it summoned no one but her relations panel had a bright red square instead of a person.
Opened the game to try again. Bobo’s back. Yayyy.
I was upset when I opened the game for reasons completely unrelated to the previous crash, so the pictures I took were kind of whatever.
Lois Lane: How do I slide?
Maybe you should learn to dress yourself properly first.
Lois Lane: HOLY COW
Lois Lane: Ow.
I let Bobo out because I was upset and not thinking rationally.
He/she/it immediately grew into a teen.
And then Selenium wet herself on the way to the bus because she had been forced to celebrate Bobo’s birthday.
Selenium: I hate imaginary friends.
Lois Lane: AHEM.
The adults are all green, and the kids are all miserable.
Selenium: I only got the participation trophy for my club… they shall pay.
And Tyson reaches the end of his life.
Krypton: WHY AM I ALWAYS HERE WHEN PEOPLE DIE???
Tyson: Hey, Death. I’m okay with leaving now and all that.
Didn’t get the picture, but Tyson somersaulted right over Arsenic as he went into his urn.
Worst urn. Kind of figured. I sucked at paying attention to his LTW. : P
Then Death put himself on a timeout.
And played video games.
I decided this was the proper time to show Selenium’s trophy.
Zhan showed up and I took a picture. Don’t feel like saying more about it because the next morning…
So backtrack to the day before Tyson died. He decided to chat on the computer with someone…
And show her his grandchildren. Well, why not. Why. Not.
I was still kind of upset about the crash : /
Tyson: Look, this is my granddaughter, Bromine. She’s not the heir.
Tyson: And this is my granddaughter Selenium. She got, like, three votes.
After her second time getting the trophy, she decided to stop at the pool to get a shower so she wouldn’t smell.
Tyson dies again.
Death: Bless my cold, dead heart; I made it into the correct room!
Stuff happened that I don’t feel like captioning. Blah.
Tyson was once more a-okay with death.
And shook his hand, and I’m pretty sure that it crashed again. : /
Snob, virtuoso, disciplined, absent-minded.
Ballet dancer, musician, prom queen… and looking to add ‘legacy heiress’ to her list of accomplishments. She’s just a few days from YA. Loves music, herself, success, and herself.
Bromine “Bro” Mendeleev
Vehicle enthusiast, excitable, heavy sleeper, dramatic.
Lover of cars, motorcycles, and attention. Revels in her image as an extreme tomboy for the spectacle of it. Just turned into a teen. Disapproves of all things frilly.
Krypton Kal-El Clark Mendeleev
Athletic, easily-impressed, loser.
A few days from teen. Has an imaginary friend as possible spouse material. Likes to work out even though he can’t get skill points from it, and gets dumped in the trash in school. He may be a loser, but he hopes to become a winner… of this poll.
Poll closed. Stay tuned. : D
Where was the rest of the family when Doris died? They were at Bro’s badging ceremony. They all deal with their sorrow their own way.
Bro does homework, Krypton plays with Lois, and Selenium plays for tips.
Susan and Gayby got older.
Susan: Hello? If you die and leave me alone with this kid, I will NOT be happy.
I figured it would be a sin if we went through this whole thing without a simbot. So meet Zinc’s new best friend, Jan. She wants to have 50,000 simoleons, which is very doable.
Or… 74,000? Okay, whatever you say.
Jan: Arsenic Mendeleev is, as sims would say, above the average temperature.
Jan: I am too rusty to attract a human male, am I?
Zinc: Please stop hitting on my son.
Bro: Why is she eating real food if she’s a robot?
Selenium: Bromine, you can’t just ask someone why they’re eating real food.
Selenium: Guess who’s birthday is coming up.
Selenium: Technically, yeah, but I was talking about my birthday.
Jan: Omibinary, I can’t deal with talking to flesh bags! D8
Jan isn’t neurotic, but I think she secretly has the trait.
Krypton: Why did great-grandma have to die?
Bro: I’m trying to do my homework.
No Zinc! You can’t die! Your mother JUST died!
Krypton: Why does this always happen to me?
Jan: Poor kid. I’m going to mop a puddle.
That’s your best friend, Jan. Really?
Jan: Puddles are more important. They’re scary.
Zinc: Yeah, I’m ready to die. I’ve had an awesome life. Even better than Nitrogen.
Death: Nitrogen and I are in a relationship.
Zinc: Oh, yeah, she’s awesome. The best. Don’t send me to hell for dissing your girlfriend please.
Selenium: Hey, I was at the movies. What did I miss?
Zinc got the best grave. You’ll notice that the only other sim to get that was Nitrogen, although I’d argue that Ellie earned it, but was cheated by glitches.
Krypton: Grandma’s haunting me!
Lois came to life.
Krypton: My grandma just died.
NOT the thing to gossip about, Krypton.
It’s the last imaginary friend of the legacy and we’ve got a space in the house, so why not?
Lois Lane is a friendly, workaholic loner. She’s a little cutie.
Lois: I don’t have to follow him around! Sweet solitude!
… Fortress of Solitude?
Lois: I am not amused.
Jan shoos him out of the bathroom so she can use the toilet.
… do you have anything to hide, even?
Jan: I am unable to function rationally when faced with the terrifying shower.
Krypton has her birthday, and Selenium’s is in a little bit, so it’s time for our heir vote.
Final heir vote for this legacy! I’m so excited. 🙂 Whoever wins this will be founding… the sequel? I guess? I kind of want to reach the end of the periodic table. As of right now we’ll be having an ISBI. I already downloaded a mod to keep the kids from asking for bedtime stories.
I’m putting the poll here this time. Keep an eye out.
Theo: Wouldn’t you rather game on the computer?
Tyson: Console gaming is where it’s at.
Excuse me? Don’t forget what I play YOUR game on : P
Vaughn died. Again. : P
He leaves behind three sons. One of whom is also his grandson.
Tyson: Hey, babe. You still got it.
She still hasn’t figured out what he’s been doing with her mother.
Selenium: Yeah, I pretty much hate classes where you sit in desks all day. That’s why I took ballet. And was the best dancer in class AND got the lead part…
Bro: Will you shut up about your sissy dancing already?
I’m pretty sure this girl’s been a teen for about ever in my game. *shrug*
Whenever I get a call asking Doris on a date, I send her out. No sense in having her back home so she can flirt with her son-in-law when she could be going out with a vampire doctor.
Bro: Happy birthday mom!
Lacy: *look exactly the same*
Ellie: Gross, a ghost!
Ellie, you’ve been a ghost longer than anyone. I think.
Okay, Zhan was first. But my point still stands.
Selenium rocks out on the drums. There was a point to this but I don’t know what.
Selenium: How about the fact that I’ll be even better than Grandma!
Selenium: Um… I’ll master all the instruments… and top the music career… AND get all the skill challenges done.
Bro: How cool would it be to be able to drive around all the time in a huge bus?
Selenium: Please, Bromine. I’m much too good to be the sister of a bus driver.
The adults went on vacation, so a babysitter got hired. I thought she swiped the bass, but she was playing it instead.
Susan: I’m supposed to babysit for that… thing? I don’t think so.
Gayby: It’s my day off.
Go take care of your brother… son… thing…
Selenium: Sure, I’ll throw a party. Why not?
Five minutes into the party the police get called.
We had like two or three girls over, and the most anyone did was warm themselves on the fireplace. And feed a toddler.
Selenium: I am disgusted.
Bro signed up for scouting. Because ballet is for girls. : P
Selenium conveniently has prom just as her parents come back from vacation.
Selenium: So they won’t yell at me for dirty dishes that they left out themselves. : /
I cleaned everything up just in case.
Krypton is now a loser. But he has super cool pj’s and Ellie’s hair.
No, Lacy. We’re not going to force your children to live out your dreams.
You don’t even have the excuse that you didn’t achieve your dreams and need to live through them. You reached your goal like a day after you became an adult.
Tyson and Doris finally got caught.
Bro: Ewwww. Gross.
Zinc doesn’t catch it, though.
Tyson: You’re my one and only.
Zinc: Mmm… Zhan…
Zinc, he’s related to you.
Arsenic missed an entire day of work because he can’t seem to get to the carpool on his own. I guess I’ll need to keep an eye on him whenever it’s time for work.
The kids socialize and are adorable.
That afternoon, my camera got pulled over to Doris.
Of course, Death ended up in the wrong room.
Death: Doris Mendeleev. Your time is up and all that jazz.
Zinc, I can tell you’re faking.
Zinc: What? I know what she was doing with my husband.
Doris got the middle grave. She is survived by her two children and three grandchildren. I figured she’d possibly be the the last death of this legacy.
Double checked. Zinc only has to master the piano and then she’s done.
Zinc: I’m just too pawesome fur you.
Casper decided to haunt the claw machine, which of course Selenium wanted to actually use.
I thought he was a friendly ghost. 😦
Bro is learning to talk.
We’re actually skilling this one? I’m shocked.
I knew it. I knew this would happen.
The kid belongs to Vaughn and Gayby.
… I named him Joffrey.
Susan: Now you see why I’m running away.
Gayby: Don’t judge us.
I will judge you.
Lacy: Today, teaching a kid to walk. Tomorrow, the world.
Bro: I can walk now!
Selenium finally got a try at her claw machine.
Selenium: Hey, money!
Ah, we’ll get like 200 simoleons or something, no big…
Selenium: Sold for 4,000 simoleons.
Lacy: It’s a panda.
Yes it is.
And Bro is now completely skilled…
I know I could have waited for a nicer face. I didn’t. Problem?
Lacy delivered a painting to this fairy guy and wanted to gossip. He was having none of it.
Why are you doing your homework out here?
Selenium: The dining room is like a zoo or something.
Krypton grew up with his mommy’s hair. Bro photobombs.
No option for promotion, again, but she got a raise. She’s not too far from a promotion anyway.
Bro plays with a bunny. The bunny freaks me out.
Krypton plays with his IF. Her name is Lois Lane.
Birthday time for Selenium!
Selenium is now absent-minded. I like her.
Zinc got her promotion.
And mastered piano.
Nitrogen: slaaaave driverrrrr…
Now that Zinc has about nothing to do, I play around with her for a bit. I’d been hoping that Lacy could’ve been the witch since she’s had nothing to do forever, but apparently not. So NOW I can play with witchcraft.
And hold autograph sessions. Because I’ve never done that. Ever.
Fans: *facing directly wrong way*
Autograph session was too hectic for many pictures, but she met a lot of guys who were attracted to her, and she was attracted to them. : / She signed 13 autographs worth 1,300 simoleons for the family, and then 13 people went in the theater, getting us an additional 3,900 simoleons.
Zinc has an interaction to play fetch with her wand.
Why would you throw something that expensive to play fetch?
Werewolf: HaHA! Got it!
At least she didn’t put it in her mouth.
Then she came back with Zinc and thought about how much she wanted to steal Tyson away.
She also took a bath, which upset everyone in the house. The got a rude guest moodlet. Oddly enough, though, they all seem completely fine standing there while she bathes.
And last but not least, we have Bro aging up. She’s now a vehicle enthusiast. xD I guess she really is turning into a tomboy.
I’m glad that I’m holding a vote, because so far I can’t decide between these kids.
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.
