The Transforming AlphabetacyChapter 1 – There was the cube...
Before time began, there was the Cube.We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to createworlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time, welived in harmony, but like all great power,some wanted it for good, others forevil.And so began the war, a war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed bydeath.And the Cube was lost to the far reaches of space.
Having flown through time and space for a long, long time the Cube finallyreached its destination. This small planet filled with bustling Simians wasgoing to be where he would start anew.Not quite able to control his flight after entering the planets atmosphere hecrashed into an empty field not too far from a larger Simian settlement.The perfect place to meet this planets inhibitants and start a new lifeamongst them.
Clicks and whirrs filled the air as the allspark formed his new form, mimickingwhat the Simians looked like. He could not quite shed what he originally was, sohe retained a skin that looked more metal than skin and his eyes took on thered hue that usually only decepticons had."Who are you, voice that continously speaks out of nowhere?"What me?Im the creator of this planet. Ill help you get around and tell people aboutyour adventures. But first I have to introduce you for real.
Meet my founder: Allspark Cybertronian.Hes a knowledge Simian, striving to become a Criminal Mastermind. VeryDecepticon of you, Spark. The red eyes should have clued me in right away.Hes a cancer with a 6/5/5/2/7 personality. Yourre quite the serious person,arent you?„Creating a new race is no laughing matter, so why wouldnt I be serious?“Ok, I get it. By the way, I think you need a house.
"I will simply use the last powers that are left over from my old form andcreate myself a really wonderful....hou...se."*cough* Yeah, nice one Spark. Obviously there wasnt much power left."Aww, slag. How am I supposed to live in this dump?"Easy. You skill, get a job, earn money, buy a nice house. Any questions?
"Yes...how do the Simians manage this thing called skilling? Its so hard. Icant do it."Just keep trying. The skills will come to you after a while and then itll geteasier."Promise?"Promise...*shifty eyes*
"Greetings, simian female.""Wow...Ive seen a lot of weird Sims in my time...you just might make Top Ten.Im your friendly neighborhood paper girl, by the way."Spark, this is your chance. There are jobs in the paper. You know...job equalsmoney equals nice house.
Todays headline: Big fiery ball from space! Simian Scientists argue over thepossible nature of the fireball that flew over SimVille last night. Was it anasteroid or an alien? We dont know. The probability of it being an intelligentlife form is extremely small, so no closer inquiry will be made."How lucky. The Simians dont need to know of my presence. Not until I havemanaged to become a part of this fascinating species. And there is no openingas a Criminal."Did you really think theyd advertise that kind of job in the paper?
"I have thought of a way to get closer to the local criminals."May I ask how?"Sure. Ill take a job in law enforcement. According to my processor, or as theSimians call it brain, there is a 99.99% chance that Ill meet criminals there."
A couple inquisitive minds have made the long journey out of town to visit theplace where the big fiery ball was supposed to have crashed. They dont seemto wonder why there is suddenly a house standing right where the crashside issupposed to be. Allsparks strange appearance doesnt seem to scare them offeither.Lucky you, Spark.Unfortunately Spark felt no chemistry for the only female present.
"Can you imagine that somewhere up there Cybertron used to be. I really missit. " *sniffle*Dont be sad, Spark. This planet is beautiful too. And soon youll find a Simianfemale to have children with. Some lovely little Sparks to start a new racewith.
Wow, Spark. Your first day at work and you catch one of the most notoriousburglars in SimVille. How did you do that?"I just wanted to ask her if I could work for her. She tried to run before Icould ask her, so I chased her. And just when I had her the police arrived. Ididnt get to ask her about the job."Next time, Spark. Next time.
The next day Allspark came home from work to find a woman he really liked infront of his house. She is probably not the prettiest amongst the Simians ofthis planet, but all I and Allspark care about is a minimum 2 bolt attraction.Its all about chemistry and if Spark thinks her right-out-of-a-spaceship-lookis sexy, then so be it.On the plus side it really fits my theme.
Wanda, who is a huge science fiction-fan, seems a little shocked that thishunky guy, who looks as if he might just come from a planet far, far away putsthe moves on her. Shocked...but in a good way.
Romance happens as quickly as it always does with the Sims.And under the twinkling light of a thousand stars, one of them the far, faraway planet Cybertron, Allspark and Wanda share their first kiss.
Right after his new girlfriend left Spark did something he had already plannedthe whole day. He hacked into the police database and stole the adresses andcontact details of a couple well-known crime bosses. A few pleading emailslater he had finally done it. Time to get out of the police uniform and into thelife of a criminal."Too bad I didnt take sides in the war. I would have made a great decepticon,wouldnt I?"No, youre too nice, Spark.
The next day Spark had a day off, so he decided to take things further withWanda. To make sure that she will be amendable to his proposition to marryhim, he specifically dressed in his sexy topless PJs. It worked splendidly andWanda accepted.
In a simple ceremony Allspark Cybertronian and Wanda Cameron became Mr.and Mrs. Cybertronian. They didnt throw a big party or invite any guests, butJan Tellermann, who had been walking by by chance stopped to watch themimpassively.
Now everyone, meet Wanda Cybertronian.Shes a family Sim with the lifetime want to marry off 6 children (I suddenlyreally, really hate you, Wanda.)Like Spark she is a cancer with a 6/3/6/4/6 personality. She works at a lowpaying job at the drive-in and brought $4.000 into the marriage.
While Wanda hurried off to work right after the marriage ceremony endedSpark used his free time to build two more rooms and add some extrafurniture. The still dont have carpet, wallpaper or windows, but its a lot morethan it was before."Now it at least looks like a house."
Wanda cleaned up nicely as soon as she got rid of the horrible fuschia lipstick.I kept her science-fiction outfit, since it fits into the theme of thisalphabetacy perfectly."Could you please leave for a few moments. We need privacy here.""Who are you talking to, Spark?"Just me, dont mind me. Im the creator of this planet."Like a god? Wow...this is cool."
Honestly, what is more fun than having a full-fledged water balloon fight out inthe pouring rain. Wanda is winning though. Shes already managed to hit herhusband hard enough to topple him over two times, while he only managed to athit her once...mind you a hit that didnt even faze her for a second.Wanda, I gotta say, you would make quite the Bot or Con soldier."Thanks..." *mumbles* "Im so pawning, Spark."Cant argue with her on that.
"Spark, wake up. I cant believe it. My body just transformed. Spark! Are youlistening?".........*snore*"Guess not."
Lol...I guess this townie got hit by too much radiation from Allsparks crashsite. *gigglesnort*
Spark is still at work, when Wanda experiences her second transformation."So, am I correct in assuming that something my husband calls a sparkling willcome from this?"Yep, youre so smart. You might even get enough of them to fulfill your LTW(which I stopped hating after finding enough suitable names for 6 potentialsparklings of either gender).
Sparks appetite doesnt seem to diminish due to the fact that his wife isgiving birth like 3 simmeters away from him.*mumbles* "Not looking over there...focussing on the cereal Im eating in themiddle of the night...not....looking."
Everyone meet Archibald Cybertronian, first born child of the A generation,named after Archibald Witwicky. He has his mothers eyes and naturally theblack hair of both his parents. And is it just me or does Archibald have ametallic shine to his skin?In case you are wondering how his skin color came to be: Im using geneticisedskins. Since Allsparks is classified as very dark and Wandas is fairly light, allskins that come in between the number range of the two parents skins canshow up in the child.
I just know that Spark is going to be a wonderful father. *sarcasm off*"What? Im a neat person. Just because my wife just gave birth to my sondoent mean Ill leave the dirty dishes lying around."
Despite my former fears Allspark is a wonderful dad, who never complainsabout having to change diapers and autonomously feeds his son. This isdefinitely more than I would have expected from an alien, who was a cube inhis former life.
"Aww...and I had just started to work off all that baby fat."She really did get on the training bike autonomously. Its a lost cause though,Wanda. I want to get the six babies over with as fast as possible, cause babyyears are boring.
Spark....*stern voice* Why did you get demoted?"I went to a movie with a fellow criminal. He disliked my movie choice, so hetold the police about my current activities. I had to reorganize and go backsome steps in my way towards ruling the criminal world in this town to avoidthe police catching me."At least, you have an excuse, even if its not a good one.
Oh, Primus...scary face. I hope the fact that this coincided with the secondbaby bump doesnt mean anything bad. Now quickly on to the next slide...*shudder*
This happening was just a question of time. In this case time combined withbad timing.Wanda insisted to get back up to help Archibald with his age transsition, nomatter how many times I told her to lay back down. And when I finally took myeyes off her for like three seconds to get Spark to help his son with hisbirthday, she goes and falls asleep in her food.
Turning Archie into a toddler proved to be a real challenge. It took a wholenight till they finally succeeded, after Wanda fell asleep while trying and thecake glitched up, forcing Spark to stand in front of it forever and ever,without the birthday happening.
Whee, Archibald is adorable. And he already got the warm bear outfit toprepare himself for exploring the arctic. Im not quite sure but I think heinherited his mothers nose. The rest of his features is hard to tell yet. He isa cancer with a 6/5/5/4/6 personality.
Wanda is going all Ratchet on the broken down shower. But she aintcomplaining, since she just found out that tinkering is her hobby. Thats noreal surprise considering the fact that she is married to the former creatorof huge robotic organisms.
Allspark, now that he already knows the joys of fatherhood is there for thebirth this time."Breathe, breathe...you have to breathe.""I know what I have to do, Spark.""Im not talking to you, honey. Im reminding myself."
Welcome the second child of the A generation: Alice Cybertronian.Alice is named after the Pretender drone, who in the second transformersmovie tried to seduce and ultimatively kill Sam. It kinda fits that she is a lotmore human looking than her brother. Her eyes and hair are the same asexpected.
Now that I have 2 sparklings in the house we introduce: The Nanny.My first impression is that I might actually be lucky with her, since the firstthing she did after entering the house was get a bottle for Archie. Mind you,hes not hungry, but its the thought that counts.
*crayons scratching over paper*Archie, what are you doing up in the middle of the night?Oh...I should have known. Its already started. I foresee many, many sheetsfull of alien symbols that your father might just be able to read, but probablywont tell you the meaning of, in your future.
Wanda is the one to teach Archie how to talk. His first word was ice, but hemanaged to learn mommy soon enough.
Alice is a bit more lucky than her brother and actually gets to have a birthdayparty with both her parents present.Just keep your fingers crossed that the cake wont glitch again this time.
And here she is: Alice Cybertronian toddlerified and cute as a button, althoughpretty smelly. Shes even wearing a blue dress, which Ill let her keep.She is a cancer too, with a 6/3/5/6/6 personality.
I have Wanda quit her job, since currently all of my Simians are kindamiserable and she needs more time to care for herself and the Sparklings.Maybe Ill manage to teach Alice her toddler skills, because I fear thatArchibald wont be as lucky. And I still havent started on more little sparks..
At least the potty training got done before Archie grew up.2/3 toddler skills is an ok thing for me, because I know that I suck at handlingtoddlers without max_motive cheat.
"Dad look. I just transformed.".........*snore*Really Spark does care about his family...sometimes.
Archie, why are you wearing a warm sweater and a scarf in the house?Although your parents havent bought the heating decorations that came withAL I dont think its that cold."But I need to be prepared for my big expedition. There are those symbols inmy head you see and I have to investigate their origin, which is most likely thenorth pole!"Why there?"Cause the symbols said so?"
"Say Wanda, how was the transformation going on with your body caused?""You...me...whoohoo...remember? Well have another little Sparkling soon.""Okay."...*mumbles* "My husband is really not the brightest. Are you certain that heonce created an intelligent race?"
"Whos Daddys little girl?"*giggling*"Yep, its you."Not too bright, but Spark is really cute with his little ones.
Dont look so innocent, Spark. I know that you just scammed a lot of moneyfrom old Sim couples. And with the old time share scheme no less. Im soproud of you. You might really turn into a potential decepticon sometime in thefuture."Really?" *happy puppy dog eyes*Or maybe not.
I was really scared due to this pregnacy for a while because Wanda had thefear of having a baby. As a family sim no less. But she got over that ridiculousnotion and is looking forward to her sparkling now.
For Alice it was Wanda, who had the potty training honor."Finally she can do it alone and I dont have to get up in the middle of thenight to get her into the bathroom!"
Allspark was away at work, so he didnt get to witness the birth of his seconddaughter Arcee Cybertronian. Shes the first to be named after an Autobot.Lookwise she has got her coloration totally from her mother.
I keep missing the sparklings birthdays like I always do. So unbeknownst totheir family Alice grew up into a really cute little girl."What else did you expect me to be except cute? I need to be able to seduceand therefore I have to be pretty."
Wanda! Maybe it has escaped your notice, but drinking lots of coffee duringpregnacy is bad.*growls* "Shut up, about it. Im a cranky, pregnant family sim with a fear ofhaving another baby, so dont bother me."*steps back carefully* Um...ok....
"My father was once the cube.""Really? Wow!...Um...What do you mean by cube?""He was a cube worshipped by an intelligent robotic race he created before hecame to earth and became a Simian."Archie uses the family history to impress the girl he brought home fromschool. You go, Arch!
*munch* *snore* *crunch*Wandas got mad multitasking skills. She can eat and sleep at the same time.Im sure those spaghetti will look really great on your face Wanda.
"Allspark to Cybertron. Allspark to Cybertron. Is anybody still out there."........."Guess not."
Her siblings are having quite the fun as Arcee gets prepared for her spin intotoddlerhood. Enjoy it little spark. This will most likely be the only time in yourlife youll ever get a cake for your birthday.
And there she is: Arcee Cybertronian. Who for some strange reason has brownhair. I guess Wanda was not as purely black-haired as she always pretended tobe. Or something...looking at Arcees stats I really wonder. If I would not beabsolutely sure that Wanda has woohooed with no one except Spark I wouldquestion his fatherhood.Arcee is nothing like her siblings. She is a gemini with a 2/10/10/6/7personality. Sloppy and outgoing...naked hottubing here we come (not that theyhave a hottub, but just saying).
"And then she sticks her tongue down his throat and gets information fromhim. Do you understand that, Arcee?""Infowmation?""Yes, thats what shes after."ALICE! What the hell are you teaching your younger sister?
Wanda could hold off going into labour till she had at least finished cooking.This means I still have not had a fire yet. Im pleasantly surprised.
Please welcome Annabelle Cybertronian.She is named after the daughter of Will Lennox for the TransformersMovieverse.Lookwise she is pretty close to her sister Alice, although her skin is not quitethe same I think. Plus she is another one with black hair. Well see how thatwill develop in the future.
Continuing with the tradition of missing every birthday, Archie grew up. Herolled popularity and fortune as his secondary aspiration. He wants to becomea rock god which totally fits his need for fame and fortune."Ive finally found out what to make of the symbols I saw since I was a littletoddler. They are actually lyrics. Now I only need to add the fitting music andIll be so famous in no time."
Right after his birthday Archie helps Annabelle grow up in a huge cloud ofstink."Her smile should have clued me in that she was planning to fart. " *pullsdisgusted face*
Despite the fact that she pulls a face here Annabelle turned out adorable. Ireally love her look. And the dress is so cute. The same one that Alice wore,just pink. Other than that she is a cancer with a 6/3/6/4/6 personality, whichis the exact same as her mother, if I remember correctly (too lazy to look itup right now).
"They should really have put a warning on this elixir. It makes you fat fasterthan you can look."I kinda recall thinking that Wanda was the smart one. I changed my opinion.
"Seriously Wanda! Im the founder of this legacy and yet I get no screen time.And all because you are always poppin sparklings. And you broke the tub. AndIm in a bad mood. And I havent reached my LTW."Man...Spark is cranky today. But I really neglected him. Actually except forbirths and birthdays not much has been shown in this album so far. So I kindaunderstand him and will try to do better.
Arcee is somewhat glitched at the moment. She has been bathed like twominutes ago and yet the stink cloud around her did not vanish. Its kindafitting that this glitch should hit her, since she is the only sloppy Simian in thehouse.Hopefully when she finally grows up, shell get back to normal. Otherwise herfuture husband will just have to have stink as a turn-on.
Her mood matches the stink clouds around her. Arcee! I would have expectedsmashing the Bunny Head around from Alice, shes named after a decepticonafter all. But you? Youre supposed to be one of the good guys." lice said do this."That explains it all.
Without Archie this family would be so slagged at the moment. Wanda cantdo much for her kids at the moment, because shes always in the red with one,two, three needs and Spark is still trying to somehow get enough skills for apromotion. So Archie is the one keeping us alive. Hes constantly platinum andin a good mood, caring for his little sisters, doing his homework and everything.You rock, Arch!
Arcee grows up in the cramped space of their bathroom and finally gets rid ofthe stinkcloud and her matching sour mood.
Please welcome: Alana Cybertronian. Another girl, who is named after a veryminor character, who appeared in one episode of the cartoon series.She looks kinda like an Archibald clone, which Im very ok with since I reallylike my oldest.
Archibald instantly takes to his little look-alike."Open wide. Here comes the energon train. Tschu...tschu...tschu..."You arent really feeding her energon I hope."Of couse not. Although I would have enough points to bring out the specialmilk."
"Spark darling, are you happy that this is gonna be my last pregnacy? Afterthat Ill finally be in a better mood again and we can do this just for fun.""Cant wait! Would you give us some privacy, please?"*oogles Sparks naked chest* *drools* Wha?...Oops, sorry. *slinks away*
Arcee and Alice continue their tradition of playing together."When Im grown up I want to go on a big ocean cruiser and travel the wholeworld. And I need a rich husband to pay for it.""I want to go on a starship and visit Cybertron."
Wanda its been forever since I last saw you interact with one of your kids.And as a family sim no less."Thats your fault for not being able to keep my needs up."
Wanda is really trying to make up for all the things she missed. TeachingArcee to do her homework and generally interacting with her kids alot.You dont have to try so hard, Wanda. I never actually stopped liking you.
This is only the second time that Wanda has ever been sick during all of herpregnacies. Otherwise this would probably have gone downhill a lot more thanit actually has.
"Whee, the last pregnacy, then I finally have enough kids for my lifetimewant."*mutters* Not twins, not twins, please not twins.Actually Wanda looks as if she is grinding her teeth, while happy at the sametime.
"Give up, decepticon!"*sticks out her tongue* "My superlong lasso tongue will squeeze you to death.""You dont have a superlong tongue.""Just pretend, Arcee. Its not that hard.
Annabelle is the second of this generations children to finally learn how tospeak as a toddler. Maybe she really has a chance to learn all her toddlerskills, now that I got Wandas needs under a better control.
"Allspark to Cybertron, Allspark to Cybertron, can anybody hear me?"............"Slag, this didnt work either."
Its time for Alice to grow into teenhood and surprisingly she rolls knowledgeand fortune as her secondary aspiration."Well, what did you think? That Id be chasing boys for fun? Im justinterested in the knowledge I can gather from them. And when it gets mesome nice presents on top of it, Im not saying no."Once she has gathered enough information she wants to publish it all in herown paper and become the best journalist ever.
"The spawkles attack me...chowking...help, help."Alice, who was standing like three simcentimeters next to her just out ofcamera range, did not particularly care about her sisters predicament."Dont worry, just jump and spin and all will be fine."
"See little Annabelle. Everything is ok.""Eww...dont try to come near me with your giant tongue."Annabelle is cute, even though shes pulling quite the face here. And not likingher sister much, which I only found out after I tried to make them hug.*mutters to herself: check relationship panel first next time*
"I really dont get why Simians would eat this salad thing. Its cold and food ismeant to be hot.""Because its salad! Plus, you were a cube floating in space, dad. What wouldyou know about hot food anyway.“Archie 1 : 0 Spark
That same evening Alana grew into toddlerhood.I think the hairstyle and color doesnt really match her skintone, so I changedit later.Shes another cancer, this time with a 6/5/5/4/6 personality.
And finally the last child of generation A was born. Another boy, which mademe really happy. The little one was named Alpha Trion after the famous andwise Autobot of the same name.He has the same dark shimmering skin as his brother Archie and of courseblack hair and brown eyes.*mutters* Probably gonna be another cancer, too.
Now that all children of this generation are born I think its time to end thischapter with a family photo of the Cybertronians. In their PJs of course.Maybe Ill manage to have a bit more character development in the nextchapter. There will definitely be less births.Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed this and will be around for the nextchapter of the Transforming Alphabetacy.
