Also: started following my own legacy rules for a challenge I'm creating. You can too! Just check out the Infinite Improbability Legacy Challenge or IIC. I'd love feedback forever. /spam
I thought I'd start with a picture of the shack Jean-Luc and Janeway moved in to. Pretty pathetic, yes?
Also, if you remember, I discovered that Lenny had a daughter from a previous marriage. This is Jenni. She comes with Twinbrook and is less than exciting. Here she is seen to say "Ah, so I see you got father's cheekbones as well."
Tiberius didn't stay long.
Oh and incidentally, I switched to the Racket household for like a minute in order to fix Jenni's family tree with an imported and aged spawn of hers from a clean install, and Demo and Lenny got hitched, finally. I guess I was holding them back.
Finally! He was seriously like 91 days old!
Tiberius decides it's high time to begin dating... but is perhaps less than enthused with Twinbrook's available pool of gentlemen.
Like mother like daughter, I suppose.
Back in the still rather crowded family estate, Data is contemplating kidnapping Nerys to study human behavior, but even the ACTUAL robot thinks he is crazy.
Good ol' dad, bogarting my fancy skilling table*.
*read: no more useful than an easel for my purposes.
Bored to death of Babies, reading, and Twinbrook dating, Tibs decides it is off to France with herself.
Where she wastes no time getting plastered.
Tiberius: Hm, maybe I should have read up on this first...
Yep. Definitely should have. Also, I really hope she bathed first.
Now I know nothing about real wine making. But does it really involve a scary contraption like this?
While waiting for her experiment to come out, more boozing! (it same out horribly, P.S)
Bored with the lack of attractive males also boozing it up, we give the basement a little look-over.
And rob the Nectary blind!
Tiberius: Oh, I found what might be a historically significant cellar full of ancient artifacts, let me root around in the dirt to make sure I don't leave any of this for historians, archeologists, or people who actually know it's value (beyond the few bucks I will make hawking it)!
Back at base camp, finally, we discover a very strange pajama party.
Creepy Adventurer: See, it's all that teeth whitener, making us stupid. That's why I never brush.
Rather than go home with no profit, Tiberius resorts to digging through the locals' trash bins. And then it's time to return.
As SOON as Twinbrook loaded, I heard chimes. At first I panicked, thinking, you know, somehow Tibs had gotten a magic travel baby. And then I saw this. CURSE YOU, STOP BREEDING!
(Thereafter I disabled 'near elder' pregnancy)
Still studying the strangeness that is human creativity, I see.
And Starla is talking to the food processor.
So rather than stay in with the crazies, we dig through some domestic trash in pursuit of garbage to get us closer to that 100k lifetime goal.
Skilling up might also help with that.
As would a job! Always the fashion-forward triplet, Tiberius tries to convey some of her tips to a local.
It goes well.
! ! This is Terry A. Something something, and his tattoos make Tiberius wibble.
Terry A: So I bust one side of the handcuffs, right, and I'm high-tailing it out of there-
Tiberius: Can we have marriage now?
Terry A: Sorry, I've got this girlfriend on the Internet...
Tiberius: minus minus.
Life goes on as normal for awhile. Tiberius nearly chokes to death on what looks suspiciously like a womrat from TS2.
And contemplates her personal look. Sure, the outfit is a little out there, but what really bothers her is the hair. So it comes off and I, er, chose Demo's hair I think. Oops.
As part of her job as a stylist, she accosts strangers and tells them they need a makeover. Sounds like good TV!
He is so not into his dapper geek look. Aw.
Random terrifying image of Nerys!
And back to sketching, sketching, sketching.
In his old age, Lenny has developed the ability to actually look at babies!!
Which is good, since his 60 year old wife is going to pop out another pretty soon.
And maybe murder Data. Maybe.
Speaking of Data, I got a pop-up saying he found a laundry gnome. Which is apparently this horrible thing.
Demo: Jesus Christ I'm too old for thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiS!
Tiberius + Data: What, is this... are we doing this panic correctly?
Demo: I am going to go explode now kthanks.
The little fellow being engulfed in her breasts is Riker, who is an Insane Virtuoso.
In protest of moar babies that are not hers, Tiberius destroys a sink.
Lenny: Dear God: FEED ME!
Demo: What have I done.
Seems someone is getting more inept in his old age.
Demo: No, seriously, what was I thinking?
As we slowly attempt to woo Terry A. from his (I think dead!!) girlfriend.
It certainly seems to be working.
Look, it's not my fault. I can't even control you anymore.
Tiberius goes into the future in search of monies and comes back with nothin'. Aka: I unwisely kill time on her days off.
Data returns to his research on the human fear reaction.
Dunno, but isn't the outfit sort of darling? I will not lie: performing a billion makeovers is horrible. But the work clothes are cute, so.
Worst Dressed EA Sim Amy -whatsits gets a 'grown up' makeover and is okay with it, prompting a promotion (if I recall).
And these two keep up with their awkward not flirting. At least, I am hoping that is a 'sexy' face and not a 'I will murder you for staying young' face.
Tiberius: Haha, you. Oh, by the way, can I borrow a few bucks? Thanks!
As part of the worst documented toddler birthday ever, Nerys gets older.
She's sort of a milder version of Tiberius, isn't she? I think she's pretty. And she Hates the Outdoors, but is both Good and Lucky.
Two birthdays in one day! Demo is super excited.
Demo: Wait, what is that feeling? Is it infertility? Aww man.
Lenny: Ew, woman! Put on some pants for once!
Here is where I FINALLY had enough generation challenges to roll one for Tiberius: she got 'The Owner', which means she has to become a partner and then own at least one business in town, and also frequent it. So, as we're super poor from the new house, this tiny diner is it.
Sorry I just wanted to share how cute of an old lady Demo is.
Tolling in this Stylist career is getting old fast for both Tiberius and myself. But that 100k won't make itself.
Demo: And now my hair is like a poofy white cloud, with the sun peeking gently out from behind it.
Nerys: Uh, okay Mom.
Age is no limit to friendship, and as her father helpfully demonstrated, no barrier to keeping the legacy alive.
That face might be, though. Eep!
Deciding to check in on her little diner for lunch, Tiberius meets Jani Smith (who I will post at some point).
But they do not get on.
Seriously, she never went back to work! Also: Hi, actual rendering of Janeway! Long time no see. Incidentally, at this point Janeway is doing well in Politics and has dated and left one of the older Bakers. Lincoln, maybe?
Tiberius: Hey, slightly older sister! AND CLEVER! CLEVERER, yes, you're so clever and--
Tiberius: Can I borrow a few bucks? I, er, haven't had dinner and--
Janeway: Listen, Tiberius, I know you can eat here for free. Just take the money.
Baldy here apparently is less tolerant of mooching than everyone else in town.
Seriously, he's always kind of been an attentive father, but it's so much cuter when they get old.
Nerys: Man, this social studies ess--hm, what's that on the ceiling?
A tiny congregation for the last of the first gen spawn.
And we have another pink-haired green-eyed boy. It looks like he takes after his mother in most regards, genetically. Ah well, it isn't like he'll be heir.
These three engage in a 'see who breaks first and eats the cake' contest (Which Tiberius has already lost).
And Nerys takes up painting. How lovely.
It is nothing but birthdays around here! But this one is important, because Data will be LEAVING FOREVER.
News which is particularly exciting for Demo, apparently.
This is the only picture I take of him as a young adult before kicking him out. And I sent Starla with him, since I was feeling a little crowded. His final trait line-up is Childish, Light Sleeper, Vegetarian, Easily Impressed, and Virtuoso. I think his LTW was to become a Creature/Robot Crossbreeder. Of course it is.
Work the next day is very exciting, when the boss decides to kick the bucket right then and there.
This guy, who's name I don't remember, faints. He is, by the way, Jenni and Goodwin's son From Another Twinbrook and Imported Here, and thus Tib's nephew.
Since Terry A. (no, really, that is his first name) came to work in these, Tiberius offers to make him look cool again.
Back at home, we do a little brother-sister bonding.
And Tiberius begins to worry about whether she will ever have children of her own.
Demo is still CHDORLABLE.
This guy likes his makeover.
And I import a few more YA into town. Here is C-something Hardbottle, a male'd version of the VDSL founder, and, um... that guy.
But her heart is still set on Terry A., apparently.
We interupt this update to bring you breaking news!
(Hi, Grace Deens from simpairment !)
Data has joined the Stylist career. Er.
(Also, looks like it a male'd version of Jani from earler)
Back to business, Tiberius is either being lewd or asking Terry A. to dinner.
Tiberius: Please please please let him be over his girlfriend!
Terry A.: Man, I am so glad you asked me here, I am WICKED hungry!
Tiberius: Well, first I just wanted to say how much you've come to mean to me lately.
Tiberius: And I was wondering if you maybe felt the same way?
*insert dramatic pause*
Terry A.: Look kid, I like you, but I am committed to my girlfriend, I thought you understood that!
Tiberius: *crushed face*
Terry A: You're a real star.
Terry A: But enough is enough.
And then something more important than dealing with this came up. Tiberius had to rush home ASAP.
Because her father was on fire.
Oh God Oh God it's HORRIBLE.
THIS IS THE WORST THING EVER DO SOMETHIN
Tiberius makes it home and tries to help out. (I, er, panicked and tried this before calling the fire department)
But it's really, really bad!
Riker plays, oblivious to the horrors going on a few feet to his left.
And Grim comes. In a snazzy tweed blazar, and I am too upset to WTF .
Oh, yeah, THANKS TONS FOR SHOWING UP!
Spare Updates: Jean-Luc is working at the Bistro, married Lucy Green (the town thug) and then divorced her.
Janeway is working in Politics, dated Lincoln Baker, then broke up, and is now dating Hansan Morrow.
Data is working as a Stylist.
Current Mood: groggy
