A smallish update, comprising 91 images. I had the comments almost finished and Firefox decided I wanted to leave the page. Grah.
When we left off, Tiberius and Teddy had just gotten engaged, and Demo wandered over to make conversation.
Demo: So, you know, if you just waited about a week, my younger daughter would have been available.
Demo: Unless you're really in to cheekbones THIS wide.
Teddy: Oh, I completely am, and can't wait to get married. I was thinking, you know, maybe we could get some bells to ring just as we run down the church stairs, just like in a movie and--
Across the room, Riker is fascinated with something. Perhaps a dust mote, or an invisible rabbit. The world may never know.
Later that night, Tiberius watches a meteor crash to earth. She tracks it down across town, sees that it is huge, and makes 20k off of the discovery.
Which is just over the amount she needs to become the owner of her diner. Generation challenge: I have defeated you.
Tiberius: My fortune said I was getting married today, so please come down to the beach around 11.
One last drink to the single life.
The beach is decked out, and Teddy shows up like a sailor. Ah well.
At least he's enthusiastic about the wedding. Way to go, other triplets.
Teddy: Now don't lose this ring, we'd never see it again.
And we won't.
The rest of the family is around here somewhere, it's just that without the arch, nobody comes to sit and really experience weddings. Way to go, EA.
Teddy: Now that I'm married, I suddenly feel more responsible and like a full grown man!
That's right, he had a birthday and then ran off to work. During his wedding. Incidentally, his traits are: Ambitious, Brave, Clumsy, Handy, and Perceptive.
Tiberius: So even though I chose Teddy, I hope that you understand and we can remain friends.
And then he left.
And hey, what's a classy event like a wedding without mooching $5 off your sister?
They actually waited for the wedding night. Let's give them some privacy, shall we?
Riker has been wandering around for days, thinking of the Laundry gnome. Clearly, he's terrified.
Here, he contemplates the birthplace of his newest nemesis.
Demo stayed at the beach to play for an audience of zero.
And the wedding night was thusly had. I've turned chimes off, incidentally, so we'll have to wait and see for the results.
Apparently the WooHoo was really good, because this is what she painted right after.
Dude, you guys have a room!
Seriously they are always groping all over the house.
As you can see, I got a little bored (and no baby was had), so off Tiberius went to do good.
Janeway strolled by with Sophia, but didn't say hello.
Perhaps because at least three Sims peed their pants in front of the store.
Tiberius's "good deed" was to build a public restroom out back.
And also clean up the mess. That's right, guy in a red sweater. Some poor woman in a bathing suit and high heels is mopping up your urine for you. Next time, just go home!
Tiberius: So does no longer being the Doctor make you angry?
David Tennant: *tries not to cry*
Here is Sophia, who apparently had a birthday that night.
And Ismael, too. Jean-Luc's son, if you forgot. He apparently has Invisible Cow Toy.
At home. Demo gets crazy excited about her food, still, even though I am pretty sure that is grilled cheese and not PB&J .
Everyone is still obsessed with Rex. Despite my desires to keep as much autonomy as possible, I finally broke down and downloaded a "Don't look at bugs" mod. It was getting stupid.
Tiberius: So, if you just impregnated me, I am going to kill you.
Teddy: *oblivious post-WooHoo stupor*
Tiberius: Hey, I can levitate this spoon.
Because Teddy is a firefighter*, I was curious about what he does at work since I can't control him. The answer is this.
I started to get "you missed a disaster" pop-ups. Fearful for the fate of my town, I cheated and made Teddy quit.
Tiberius goes to Jean-Luc's house and meets Pansy Peregrine, his wife #2. She's reasonably pretty?
But a real bitch. Halfway through their "conversation", Tiberius ran upstairs.
I guess Teddy better watch out.
(sorry for the close-up. Her crazy eyes, I couldn't resist)
At least she brushes her teeth afterward.
Riker went to the house across the street after school, apparently just to experience the furniture.
... I hate his shoes, but then, he IS Insane.
This poor little chubby kid still got WAY excited to have a guest.
Just after a really badly captured "bump", Tiberius breaks the news to Teddy.
Teddy: Wow honey that is fantastic please do not murder me?
I also built a little playground, and Riker did this for about two hours.
I gave Teddy a slightly less dopey makeover, bless him.
And Riker did this for the rest of the day. Well, at least he got the hang of it eventually, eh?
Oh, wow, how long has it been since we saw Nerys? Not at all this update? Let's check in!
Oh. Well, okay then.
(I had maybe 25 different shots of her painting up to this point. I love her, but painting =/= exciting)
OH GOD, Demo, why did the camera zoom to you?!
... what. Really? You're... just... okay. Well. Hm. I guess as long as you are not dead yet.
Teddy may have used a skoche too much soap, here.
Nerys comes out of hiding and learns about Impending Gen 3 baby. She is really , really excited.
Tiberius: Nerys, are you--
Nerys: Shh. I am putting this memory deep down inside of me so I can never forget it.
Seriously, it is not like she's never been an Aunt before. Then again, Janeway and Jean-Luc have NEVER visited and are never, ever in their houses. :[
Careful! The social bunny can smell your fear, and even an image of a social bunny IS a social bunny.
Completely unprompted, Richie (Jenni's son) comes over. I guess I did invite him to the wedding, but I'm not sure they ever interacted.
In fact, I'm sure they didn't, since Tiberius straight up dislikes her half-nephew.
Kind of a lot.
He also manages to not get along with Nerys, who is, you know, Good. He eventually leaves around 2AM.
Teddy: Man, these pancakes really remind me of something.
It was his wife's lips. These two!
Time to break the news to Demo, who would frankly need to be an idiot to be told at this point, considering she did this four times.
Still, she's totally pleased to have a grandbaby she can SEE.
Every day, Jean-Luc comes into Demo's room, stares for about an hour, and wanders out. What.
It's time for his birthday! He has a formal party, which he comes to in his swim trunks. And people boo. A ten year old. At his own birthday.
Not that anyone's formal clothes are particularly nice.
Late to his own cheer, how sad.
Now, now, Jean-Luc, just because he's kind of your clone doesn't give you the right to be rude!
I cannot abide by a Riker with a buzz cut and no facial hair. It just isn't kosher. Also, I admit it. I slider'ed his eyes back in his head just a little bit. They were sticking out the bottom in neutral face, and he's a spare! He also now Hates the Outdoors.
Return of the Laundry Gnome! See, the thing is, he's been facing the wall like this in Nerys's room for about a week. I couldn't figure it out, until I happened to look at Riker's room with the walls down. D:
Even Demo has has the painting bug. Sigh.
Uhm. Tiberius, I realize you've never done this before, but, getting in to bed after your water breaks is... wrong.
Teddy: I sense a gross bodily fluid puddle!
NOW she's up! And now Teddy might actually want to fear for his life.
They go off to the hospital and Riker freaks out in the kitchen.
Riker: I can sense the laundry machine! It's back there, isn't it? Just waiting to let another one of those THINGS through it's portal to the underworld.
Meet Janissary (+10 awesome to anyone who knows where I got the name!) She is, so appropriately, Brave and Athletic. I love when the random generator throws me a bone.
The next few days are VERY typical. Here is an excerpt:
Data is still a Stylist, and that guy is Terry's replacement (he retired or something).
Demo and Tiberius have a good mother-daughter lunch at the diner.
Everyone queues up to bother Janissary.
Tiberius paints a trauma-relieving image in tribute to the death of her father.
It's not easy for her.
Demo: Holy crap I am like 95 and your aging mod only gives us a base life span of 80!!!
Yet she is determined to live on.
As creepy as this is, the walls are actually just down between the bedroom and bathroom. Meaning he went in there, and they trapped him by getting busy. So... more or less creepy?
Another day, another venture into the world of being a masked* superhero. Tiberius spots these old men having a heated argument in the park.
*With no mask, since I don't feel like flipping back and forth between makeups.
Tiberius: You're an evil old man and you should be ashamed! I once gave this gentleman a VERY NICE makeover.
Tiberius: And if you keep up your deplorable behavior, I will run you out of this town! I declare you to be my one true Nemesis, Jeffrey Castor!
Justice: Accosting old men while wearing a swimsuit and high heels.
A job well done, Tiberius extorts money from the man she "rescued".
Story Updates: Janeway also finally got married, and Jenni died.
Current Mood: mellow
