Time for another chapter of Geogacy! This chapter jumps around a little, but I made sure it was easy to follow. As for a recap, generation 3 kids Biotite, Beryl, & Breccia are now children and little Brucite is just cute. Cat Cat is still ticked at Circe for letting gnomes in the house and plans are in the works to put surveillance on the mysterious Mr. Gentry. Hope you enjoy. :D
We start today's chapter-- " *CRRRRRYYYYYY* " Lucy, what's wrong? What happened? Is everybody ok??
"I..*Cry*.. Want..*Cry*.. Money!!" ooww....umm...Ok maybe I should have been watching your aspiration gage a little more closely. ur... Sorry about that. Let's go and open the salon for a few....ur...years or so. Would you like that? "MONEY!!!!!" *sigh*
Hello there Biotite. I see you are skilling like a good legacy child. What are you reading about? "...." Umm...I bet it's cooking. All kids love to learn about grilled cheese. "...." OK, OK I am sorry I sent Devin home. But, you have to understand that you could become the heir of this legacy. This means you have to do your homework and gather skill point. You can't play with your friend all the time and it's not like he won't follow you home again from school tomorrow. "...." *sigh* Fine, don't talk to me. It's not like I need reassurance that you don't hate me.... *sniff* I am going now...*sniff*
"Time to grow up my son. Now I know the Creator has ignored you so far--" I did not ignore him! Babies just don't do interesting things is all. "Don't you worry. Daddy is going to make you into a strong general. You will know all the finer points of the Art of Mighty Fury." *sigh* Al is still on the "Art of Mighty Fury" kick, but so far, no harm done. *crosses fingers*
“ Ok Bruce, just as we practiced, Flying Snowman, Biting Flamingo Triple Kick of Mighty Fury! Now, GO!” “ But Daddy, no walk yet.” “ That kind of talk is for quitters. Now somersault to Daddy.” “ Al, get your skinny, but firm sexy backside in this kitchen NOW!”
"Turn off demon possessed trash can! Turn off."
“ Hisss, I will force you yo eat your own waste produces. Muhahaha! *Buzz* Eeww, I do believe it's possessed. This isn't the first time it's gone crazy, try the 8th.
“ Hisss I will not submit fleshy creature! Hiss! *Buzz*” “ Down with you, Grrr! I don't know how he did it, but my Rival is indeed crafty, turning my own appliances against me. Ah ha! That is brilliant, Killer toaster minions. Why didn't I think of that before. Muhahaha” “ Hiss! *Buzz* “ Let this be a lesson to you Bruce. Always pay attention to your studies or you'll turn out like Daddy. “ “ Me study hard.” Good Boy!
“ Grandma, Mommy look, I got an A+!” “ Way to go, Sweetie. Now, keep this up so you can get a scholarships. That way I don't have to pay for your college!” “ Isn't college free in the Sims?” “ Ha! Funny Sweetie.”
"Stupid Gnomes brainwashing Circe with their rosy cheeks and cute pointy hats. How dare they turn my friend against me. If I had my '101 Easy Gnome Recipes' cookbook, I'd serve them up in a spicy brown sauce with lots of onions."
"Excuse me Miss, I don't mean to intrude, but you seem to be under some stress. Is there anything I can help you with?" " *sniff* Not unless you are a black belt in gnome kicking and can pry my friend away from their chubby little fingers." " Ahh, you have a gnome problem. I understand they can be very mischievous Sometimes a little too mischievous, as in your case." " *sniff* That's an understatement, the gnome have been after me for years."
" Have they? Interesting. I maybe able to help you." " How? What can you do that I haven't already tried?" " May I sit here? We have quite a bit to discuss."
Back at the legacy house... "You know my goal is to train our children to be the best possible generals they can be." " Ah ha." "Well, lately I feel that I'm not getting through to them. It's like they don't understand the severity of our circumstances." "Ah ha."
"At any moment my Rival could appear like a great eagle taring through the skies looking for a chance to swoop down on us. Who knows what that lunatic could do. He's already destroyed all my attempts at forming a minion army."
"This isn't about world domination anymore. Well, it is, but now it's personal! My family is at risk. That's why it is important for our children to learn and master the "Art of Mighty Fury" for their own protection as well as for the family's well being." "Ah ha."
"Therefore, I am going to plan a vacation. Just me and the kids. What do you think, Lucy?" " Ah ha." "I knew you would understand. I'm going to tell the kids. They'll be so existed!"
"Hello, Lucy. Decided not to go with Al and the kids?" "Go where?" " On Vacation. Didn't Al talk to you about it?" "No, I don't believe so." "Hmm, that's odd."
"Yeah it is, but all that aside. I have excellent news!" "Really, are you having another baby?" "No, not--" "Adoption? now that is a great idea, give those poor homeless townie children a safe and warm roof over their little heads. What an idea! You are caring sim, Lucy. I am so proud."
"Umm, No, sorry Hitomi, but the house is full. No more babies until Biotite goes to college." "Oh poo. Well, what is your news then. Can't be too important if there aren't children involved." "Oh this is very very good news. I spent the last few hours on the salon's accounts and I discovered that I saved hundreds of simloans by switching to Simco! Isn't that wonderful!" " ....that's nice...umm, how much did you save?"
Back at Circe HQ... “ I received your message, Circe. What is this about a LFPA imposter? (Dicreasy writer of A Victorian Lagacy)
"It appears that this Gentry guy is posing as a LFPA agent. Which can't be possible because I made up the whole LFPA thing myself. I find it highly annoying that someone is using my material to fool the Creator. I am the only one who has the right to torture her, nobody else. This guy is trouble and that is why I need you guys to help. We are going to gather as much info on this guy as possible."
"That does seem to be the wisest choice and I will help in anyway I can. However, I must ask. Why are you wearing dark clothing and sunglasses? I thought the point was to blend in."
" But, that is the point." " But, wouldn't he notice a darkly clad woman following him around?" "Oh please, he's a townie. If a waved around a slice of pizza and started up a water balloon fight, then maybe he might notice. Trust me, as long as we don't make any sudden movements we'll be able to sneeze on him and he wouldn't be the wiser." "As long as you are sure, then I will not worry, but something tells me we should be more careful with this one." "You worry too much, Di. It will be fine. Now, listen up ladies. Here is the plan...."
"This is it kids. Two weeks of clean mountain air & clear skies. Peace and quite with no one around for miles. Yes, this is perfect! Uninterupted bonding time with no fear my Rival will appear." Wow Al, I am surprised and to think I thought you only cared about your world takeover. Taking the kids camping is just the sweetest thing. Nevertheless, you are a Family Sim. You probably couldn't wait to spend quality time with the little ones.
“ Come on Kids, I'll race you to the tents.” “ Was I the only one who felt the teen slasher film vibe just now?” “ Oh my, It's a good thing we are not teenager yet.” “ I don't think that matters much, Princess.” “ Oh my.”
“ Now pay attention kids. We have a very busy schedule and we can't afford to fall behind. First, we will start with same stretches, then 15 laps around the camp.” “ Woah wait. This is a vacation, right? What's with the stretching talk? Shouldn't we be doing the R & R thing?” “ Right you are, my little general. We will be remolding and refining the body and mind, Art of Mighty Fury style. Starting today, I am going to mold and refine your little selves into creatures of military mightiness. It will be glorious!”
“ Glorious my little royal backside, Daddy! I am way too pretty for military anything. I am so telling Grandma Hitomi.” “ Why didn't I listen to my gut feelings? This is worse then a teen slasher film.” “ Oh my, does this mean I might become sweaty? That is not princess like at all.” I should have known you had some secret agenda. I take back all the nice things I said. Do you hear me, Al? “ I know this will be difficult, so I brought along these Art of Mighty Fury special training suits to help motivate your sprites.”
“ You have gone too far Daddy. No one treats Queen Breccia like this. I am so calling the social worker!” “ *cry* I am a princess, not a dragon. *cry*” “ *sigh* Why couldn't this be a slasher film?” Aww, they are so cute! Umm, I mean, bad Albite. You aren't being nice, bad. (so cute) >^-^<
"Enough talk, little pansies. Before this trip is over you will not only know the words Art of Mighty Fury you will be them, love them, invite them over for tea, you will become them!"
Ok, so my current legacy heir is flipping insane. At least the kids are getting some skilling done for once. Let us just hope they don't become emotionally scarred. One nut ball in the family is enough for me. oooh, cute little dragons!!
Soundtrack time!! "Risin' up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive"
"So many times, it happens too fast You change your passion for glory Don't lose your grip on the dream of the past You must fight just to keep them alive"
“ It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight Risin' up to the challenge of our rival And the last know survivor stalks his pry in the night And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger" Eye of the Tiger – Survivor Hehe. After two full weeks of stress filled training, Albite was happy to realize his children had achieved...
The Art Of Mighty Fury!!! This was my original title page, but I thought it might give too much away. :P
Back at the legacy lot... Wow, that must be some dog problem you got there. hehe "Ha ha very funny. If you must know I heard from a reliable source that you can find buried treasure somewhere around here." I don't know how "reliable" this source of yours is, but the odds of finding buried treasure in your own back yard is slim to none. "Well, slim to none sounds great to my bright red aspiration meter. Thank you very much!" Bright red, no no, it's got some green in it, really it does. *shifty eyes*
“ Ok kids were home now... umm...come on will you please say something to Daddy?” “ I will eat your heart!” *shiver*
“ I want to kick puppies!” “ Life is a swirling vortex of utter despair.” “ I want cake, Now!” “ Albite, What the heck have to done to my babies!” “ Umm...Family Bonding?”
“ Now children, what is the number one rule in this house? All together now.” “ Never listen to Daddy.” “ Hey!” “ Good and what's the 2nd?” “ If Daddy teaches you something, forget it right away.” “ Very Good, now who wants to hear a story?” “ Princess story?” “ Sure Sweetie.”
And just like that the Art of Mighty Fury lessons are quickly forgotten or have they? Dum Dum Dum This will be important later. :D
“ Dang Bio, where the heck you been? You trying to ditch me or somethin'?”
“ Ha ha, got to close to the salon chair?” “ Very funny, man. Your mom is scary.” It's a good thing you are here Devin. Now, get in the car. I am sending you guys out on the town. It's Biotite's birthday today and I think he deserves a little fun.
Sims always look so happy when they are dancing. “ Feel the groove, man.” “ Walk like a Zombie!” “ OOW! Help me boys I threw out my back.”
“ Did I ever tell you youngsters about the time I met "the" Mrs. Crumplebottom.” “ You're pulling our chains Grandpa.” “ Really. I even attended all of her lectures back in college.” “ Bio, your Granddad is the bomb.” You think she's cool now. Just wait til you guys start dating. hehe
Another outing across town.... "Transmission #13. I have found the target at the local apparel boutique. He appears to be browsing a trendy name brand clothing rack and beware ladies this one looks fine from the rear. I will continue monitoring...from this angle, tehe. Gold leader out."
"Transmission #27. The subject seems to have made contact with a townie female with bad hair. Your move Lady Jesi." "Bishop to Pawn. Your move Shrew Queen. The Target is still playing with the swing set. Umm, we are in a park right?" "I would think that is obvious." "Then where are all the children?" "Umm, they are all at home playing video games?" "Sigh, moral of today's story kids, the sun doesn't bite and fresh air isn't toxic." "Cough Cough"
" Victorian Vixen, here...pant..the target...pant...is still browsing the clothing rack. Still..pant... no sign of foul play. Confirmed, target has a well formed hindquarters. Vixen out."
“ After gathering the evidence, I have determined this guy is boring. We spent hours following him around and all he did all day was browse for clothes, push some random Townies on the swing, and hang with the coffee junkies at the barista.” “ Well, at least he has taste in food. This place is great. They have shrimp!”
“ He is quite the dull character, however, he is an unique Townie to be sure. Did any one else notice the type of clothing he spent hours browsing? It was all fashionable. What Townie do you know that has any taste in fashion?” “ Now that I think on it, at the park's barista, he only drank one cup of coffee. Townies normally gorge themselves until they are a jittery mess and have to run to the toilet.” “ Maybe he isn't a Townie?”
“ That's just silly. He has to be a Townie. I know all the playable sims in this neighborhood.” “ But, you have to admit, he doesn't act like a townie.” “ She's got a point. We can't dismiss the possibility. The facts stand that this fellow knows about the LFPA, which we know doesn't exist and he lead the Creator to this town with no trouble. Who would have access to that information besides, us?” “ Hmm, how did you guy find out about the LFPA anyway?”
“ Not to point out the obvious, but we all read your stories on boolprop.” “ Oh yeah, tehe. I forgot.” “ Hmm, if we found out from boolprop, maybe Mr. Gentry did to?” “ You think he is a Simself?” “ It's a possibility, of course. However, no, I believe he just read the information on boolprop, like we did. I have read stories where playable sims have checked boolprop for updates. I don't see why a Townie couldn't do it, if they had access to a computer. “ So, we are dealing with an fashionable, intelligent, computer savvy Townie, Playable or Simself. I am not liking these possibilities. We will have to kick this surveillance up a notch.”
“ Still here I see. I wonder if they will follow me home? No matter, I have gather a great deal of information on them today. One or two more day of this and I'll have all I need to form a solid plan. Let us hope that Circe's roommate succeeds with my suggestion. It would make this business less messy.” “ That's great Sweetie, but if your not going to order--” “ Oh yes, right...umm... what's in the chili? No wait, never mind, I will have what the ladies at the far table are having.” “ One Turkey dinner comin' up.” “ Woah, wait Turkey? Eww, change mine to chili. Simselves are disgusting, even if they are cute.”
Yay, birthday time! “ Well, that was an uneventful outing.” Not my fault, you're boring. Now, get to it. “ Yahoo! Make a wish Biotite.” “ Hurry it up sweetie, mommy needs to dig up this part of the lawn.”
Spin time! “ That's my boy show off those Art of Mighty Fury moves!” “ Yes, he's almost done. I can start the excavating as soon as they move the cake.”
Not bad, I guess we can keep the outfit. Ok here is the low down. Turn on: Glasses & Logic. Well that's good he like smart girls. Turn off: Blondes. Hey! There is nothing wrong with blonde. I'll have you know it's a wonderful hair color. So, there! Aspiration: Popularity. Listen up, this doesn't mean you can have Devin over 24/7. LTW: To become the Law. Yay, easy career LTW. Love it!
Because your birthday outing was just down right dull. I have decided to be generous. You my lucky legacy teen are going on your first blind date. This may even result in a 3-bolt match, which makes my job easier. Oh, I do have a little confusion to clear up. You see, Readers, I am trying to follow the True Love handicap, which means my legacy heir must have a 3-bolt chemistry with the sim that helps "create" the next generation. Now, if you remember, Al & Lucy only have a natural 2-Bolt chemistry. So, I need to use love potion to boost up their chemistry. Well you see, I kinda forgot to do that. Tehe! But, since I am not really playing for point, I am going to pretend they do have 3-Bolt. I promise I'll work really hard to make sure this doesn't happen again. *crosses fingers*
"So, Madam Joanne, Here is what I need so, the Creator will get off my back. An intelligent, non-blonde sexy girl in glasses." "Will this be cash or credit?" "Cash and keep the change." "ooh, big spender"
Long time on see, Min Fei. This is Min Fei Wong. I created her and her family a long long long time ago and packaged them up in a lot, which now belongs to Apatite and his family. I made the Wongs into Townie. I didn't have the heart to just kick them out of their home and delete them. I learned my lesson a few chapters ago. :( (read college chapter #1 -- Where art thou 3 Bolts for details)
"Hello, hotness. I see we only have 2-bolt chemistry. No problem, we can be best buddies and call each other on the phone 24/7." "Sounds good here is my home number and my cell number. Oh, here are all 3 of my email addresses and my chat room user names. I can make a list of all of my favorite forums too." "Great and can you fill out this friend profile questionnaire?" "Only if you fill out mine. hehe" Welcome, Readers, to today's show of "Guess that Aspiration". >^-^<
Are you still looking for that treasure? You are not going to find anything. Now come inside. I had Hitomi call the Headmaster and I need you to get into your formal gear. "My inner Gold Digger hears the siren's call. There be treasure under this lawn." Inner what? Ok, this is the point where I say 'no more bubbles for you'. But, you've never had access to them or at least not that a saw....Your a secret bubble blower, aren't you! "Haha! The siren's call has not forsaken me!"
"No, cruel Siren. Why have you lead me to despair?" That is it! You are here by forbidden to dig in the yard for anything. Now get this place cleaned up. I do not need the headmaster complaining about the mess or do you want your kids to get rejected from private school? "No private school?" Nope. Oh, look there you have a fear of Biotite's getting rejected. That is too bad. "No, my children will enter the best private school this town can offer!" *sighs with relief* Sometimes a little tough love is needed. Please forgive me! *sniff*
Ahh, such a lovely sound. All of the children have very high, if not maxed out creativity. It's the one thing I encourage all my sims master. Wonderful Breccia, but it's time to change. The headmaster will be here in an hour. "How dare you interrupt the Master Composer!" I'm sorry I didn't mean...wait, who said that?
“ It is a sin to stop the Master Composer! She is in the thralls of creation. Her mind in tuned to the flow of existence. Her fingers, the paintbrush that will design perfection of sound. The--” I get it! So, your a fan. “ I am the president of her fan club and wedmaster of www.QueenBrecciaMasterComposer.com. We sell autographed coffee mugs and broken robot minions.” I see...
"Dessert is ready" OOOh, Wow. I knew I could count on you to take this interview seriously and she managed that with only 8 cooking points! Good old dependable Hitomi.
Yay! The Headmaster is here. I sent Biotite to greet him, he being the social sim in the family. "Welcome to the Legacy House, Mr. Crumley." "Are you trying to win my approval with those goofy glasses?" "Umm, No?"
"That's a relief. You see, someone discovered that goofy glasses are the one weakness of Headmasters. If you had said yes, I would have had to except your application post hast. It is so refreshing to find someone who is willing to be honest and go through the interview process." "I meant Yes!" "Ha ha, honest and funny. How refreshing. Now, where's the dinner room?"
"I must say Mrs. Higarashi, tonight's meal is wonderful and I have never seen such physically fit children in all my years. How do you keep your children motivated?"
“ Duh, my Art of Mighty Fury lessons.” “ What my husband means is that we have artfully master encouraging our child to focus furiously on their own health and studies.” “ No, I mean--” “ AL!” “ Oh right, he could be an agent of my Rival trying to obtain the secrets of Mighty Fury. Good thinking, My Love.”
“ Headmaster, before I grant my approval for my Mitress the Master Composer to attend this "so-called" private school. How can your institution ensure the creative and intellectual development of Queen Breccia and her siblings?” “ Is it princess approved?”
"I did not realize this family has royal connections. This goes against our code of equal status, which forces me to reject your application." WHAT!! No, No. they are not royalty. "However, I will have to accept your application do to the 2nd weakness rule." ?? ok I'm confused . "If a headmaster is asked a question, by a overly obsessed and protective Service Sim during the interview meal, while they are eating Turkey and Mashed Potatoes and with a highchair present in the same room I am forced to accept the application. Congratulation, the Higarashi royal family is now enrolled in private school." *cough* *cough* Well,Congrats kids!
"Boo, you almost ruined my grand-babies chances for private school and you suck at 'Mary had a Little Lamb' " Well yeah, you are right. But, technically he got them in private school too. "Not the point! Boo, go back to 'chop sticks' "
"Forbid me to answer the Siren's call, will she. Hehe, but I am determined. I will prove her wrong and find that treasure."
"Keep singing lovely Siren, lead me to the shinnies."
Back at Circe HQ in the back storage room... "I hope that guy is right about this. What am I saying? He has to be right. I can't think of anything else to do. I must get Circe's mind off those demon gnomes and the only way to do that is to get her obsessed with something else. Ok, I am ready for the 1st applicant."
“ So, it says here, you are a Social Bunnism idol. What is it about yourself that you find attractive?” “ Want to be my friend? We can be the bestest best friends ever. Can I have your cell number? You can call me any time. I like to talk. Will you be my friend now? Can I have your email address? You can have mine. Here is my IM user name. Can I have yours? Are we friends yet? Want to hang out and talk about handcuffs? I like talking.” “ GET OUT NOW!!!” (Social Bunnism from Apocalypso A-Go-Go -- Ephemeraltoast)
“ So, umm... Potty God had any good flushes lately?.....Ur....NEXT!” (Potty God from Apocalypso A-Go-Go -- Ephemeraltoast)
“ Your resume is extensive, Mr...My, you smell wonderful. What is that Provolone? You must get this all the time, but you look delicious. Do you work out? Is that low fat cheese?” (Grilled Cheese worship from The Hair Legacy -- Rubbersushi)
“ Hello, Don. I am surprised to see you. I would have never thought you were the type who likes to promote yourself.” “ I'm not really. I like to think of myself as a humble zombie.” “ Then why are you here?” “ I smelled the Grilled Cheese from down the street.” (Don the Zombie from the Uglacy -- Candi020765)
“ So, I looked over your resume... yummy, your right Don it tastes better with the Swiss. Where was I? Ahh, you call yourselves the Garden Roosters and your ideals are...ur... interesting. But, I noticed you don't have any experience in attracting obsession.” “ We are not yet worshiped by the Sim masses. However, once the great mother egg hatches, our leader will raise and lead us, the Garden Roosters to glory. Those Sims who worship us now, will be spared the wrath of the Mighty Clucker and will find peace as our servants.” “ You know, I have a great recipe for chicken chili with a side of grilled cheese.” “ With shovels or without?”
“ Great idea. The slices of poultry does give it a kick. I most remember the recipe.” “ I am the grill master. Hey, why are you looking for idols and obsessive stuff anyway?” “ I have a Gnome loving roommate.” “ Ahh, gnome problem. You shouldn't worry, gnome novelty wears off after a while. Give it time and she'll move on to something else.” “ If only I could believe that. If only...”
"Hey Creator! What's the big idea putting stuff in my house without my permission?" Yay, you noticed. Isn't it cute? We had a Valentine exchange on boolprop.com and this is my gift from "Whateverhobb". I love it and I wanted to share it's cuteness with everyone!
"Hmm, the more a gaze at it the more it appeals. Cats are really cute and they are evil too. I really like cats. Cats should be appreciated for their natural traits, no worshiped. I feel... inspired." Umm...Circe? Are you ok? You are glowing...Umm, I'm glad you like it. You can paint another one if you want. I made it a custom painting. "You are the cutest! I will tell the world that cats like you are to be treasured." ...Ok, I guess I'll be going now.
Aww, that is so sweet. Hitomi is tucking in the kids. I always get that squishy warm feeling when my sims do cute family things on free will.
Hitomi is the best Family Sim I have ever played. Hmm, sounds like she is saying something. 'Sweet dreams and Grandma loves you', I bet. She is so caring and supportive. It's a good thing she and Jin have a lot of "sim" years left. Thanks to a potent blend of elixir. ^-^
"Morning Princess, you look worn out. Did you have a bad dream?" "Yeah, it was scary. I dreamt that someone told me a princess's duty was to ensure the happiness of her people." "Doesn't sound scary." "But, it was. I had to convince Townies to settle down and start families to ensure their happiness. But, they kept running away and then I was told I couldn't be a princess unless I got all the townies lots. It's was so scary. What about you did you have a dream?" "Yeah, something about stabbing Yoosung with chop sticks or something."
Lucy! What did I say about digging in the yard. Just look at the mess you made. You better stop before you break another pipe. "Never! I have followed the Siren's call and it has led me to this spot." Ok Lucy, maybe I have been a little selfish about wanting to keep you home so you can have babies. I think it's time you looked for a job-- " Ha Ha! Siren of Fortune has blessed me!"
"It's so beautiful. It shines and twinkles with all it's gold prettiness." Ok, so I was wrong about the odds. Congrats on finding the treasure. Now hurry up and sell it so you can get the aspiration boost. "I will do no such thing! This Treasure is mine, hear me MINE!!!!" Wait, wasn't the point to sell it to get the simloans? "MINE MINE MINE" Alright, it's yours. At least get the newspaper and find a job before you get a shrink visit. Hmm, maybe she should get a visit.
"Cwator, I redy go up." Already? Time does fly doesn't it. Sorry about the lack of photos. I'll take a lot of picture of you from now on. "Pwomis?" Of course, I will try and do my best. "Ok, I go up now"
"Look away Breccia, before you are blinded by that, that 50's plaid monster." Hey, that's not very nice. Bruce doesn't look bad at all. "I would get to a mirror before Beryl starts screaming, brother dear." "My royal eyes are tainted by the horrific fashion sense. Breccia hurry, my eye-drops
This is the new and improved and most importantly Beryl approved makeover. Bruce is a good kid, he works out when I tell him to and doesn't give my flack about it. " Of course not.....pant.... Must look my best... pant... for all the pictures....pant... you said you would take." I did say that, didn't I. Well, keep it up Brucie and I'll make sure to take an album full of pictures.
As normal when there is one birthday, others always seem to follow. "Hello! The Queen is about to spin over here." "I will be the prettiest princess in the whole town. I will be the prettiest princess in the whole town. I will be the prettiest princess in the whole town." "Will you shut up and spin with me. "
Synchronized Spinning, the new Olympic sport for the 2008 Summer Olympics! Yay!
"I am not feeling these red pants. You, Creator, buy me some new threads. " Oh, I am on it! "Am I the prettiest princess in the whole town?" Of course you are. "I knew it, I am hot. I am hot. I am hot. Hot HOT!" "You shouldn't encourage her, now get my new clothes!" I am right on it.
Here is the after makeover slide and the all important info everybody wants to know. Beryl Turn on: Great Cook & Facial hair. Turn off: Blondes. Why is it no one likes Blonde? It's a conspiracy I say! Aspiration: Popularity. LTW: To become A Rock God. Yay, another easy career LTW. Breccia Turn on: Logic & Facial hair. Turn off: Make-up. Aspiration: Pleasure Sim. LTW: 50 1st dates. Ha ha, like that is going to happen.
Biotite has the friend making thing down to a science. He would make all popularity sims so proud. What is the secret to his success, you ask? Since transferring to private school, he has meet a lot of other students, which he brings home everyday.
Like Vivian here. She is one of Chester and Estelle Gieke's daughters. She and Bio are only friends. They have no chemistry, which is a pity. I thought she would make a good "first love" for Bio. But, he is stubborn about the no blondes thing. Which is stupid! There is nothing wrong with blonde! ...ahem, anyway.
Bio has kept up his friendship with Devin. When they were kids, Devin would come over "everyday" from school. Now that they are in high school it's Bio who drops in "everyday". I guess I can't fight true friendship. Bio is now an official "family friend" since he is on best friend level with everyone in the house. (Devin is on the right. Vince, Devin's brother is on the left.)
He has also picked up the title of Master Hustler from all of his "outings" downtown. Why I am spending so much time on Bio? Well, you see, I would really like for Hitomi and Jin to meet all 6 of Albite and Lucy's kids, which means that somebody has to go to college soon so, Lucy can have another baby. Which brings me back to why I am spending time with Bio. I feel bad about not giving him very much face time as a kid. So, I'm making up for it now.
Hey Bio, how are you doing these days? "Is this important? I really don't have time to chat. Vivian will be here soon." About that, why don't you take Vivian downtown tonight? "Why?" Because it would be nice. "Why?" I just thought you would like to go...umm, bowling or something.
"Ok, what's going on here?" What do you mean? "I am not an idiot. What's with all of this attention? Before it was all about the girls. 'They are so cute' this and 'prefect little princess' that. Why the change? Well, you see that is why. Yeah, that's it. I realize that I spent a little too much time with the girls and I want make it up to you.
" Oh I see where this is going. It makes perfect sense now. All of the face time and you haven't complained about my friends coming home with me from school or the fact that you locked the want for me to go to college the day it showed up. You are trying to get rid of me." Well...I umm. Well you see... Ok I confess! I wanted you to have a good time before I shipped you off the college. I feel so ashamed. *Sniff* "Good, you should feel that way and just for that I am not going to college until I am good and ready!" No please, Biotite. I really need you to go tomorrow at the latest or I'll have to break out more elixir. "I am not going, yet!" Pretty please? Think about the family. All your father and grandmother want is to have another baby in the house and your Mom can't get her dream job until 2 more kids are born. Come on Bio for the family.
"Fine, just stop with the sniffing. I'll go but, I want Devin and Vivian to come too." Done! You are the best Bio. Your Parents and grandparents are going to be so proud of you. "sigh, whatever."
And so, Bio spent his last night as a teen at the bowling alley. He really is a good kid for doing this. I made sure that this was an excellent outing. I even let him get a cell phone and he had 2 dinners. I spoiled him, I know.
"The Creator told me that you agreed to help out the family and go to college a little earlier then planned. I really don't know what to say. I am so proud of you. I wanted to give you this to help you settle into college life a bit easier." "Oh wow Mom, you really didn't have to." "If you don't want it I can--" "No, I want it! Thanks Mom."
"I know that your Mom has already given you something, but I thought you might need this. You never know when you'll have to use it so keep it close." "Umm, what is it?" "No peaking, until you are at college. Now remember Son, to always be on your guard. You never know when my Rival will appear. Just remember the Art of Mighty Fury I taught you and you should be fine and when you come back, you can join me on the front line during the takeover." "Urr, I'll be sure to do that. Bye Dad."
This is where I will end this chapter. I hope you enjoyed it and if my school schedule permits, I will have the next chapter up soon. "Umm, Creator?" Yes, Bio dear? "What is the Art of Mighty Fury Dad was talking about?" You know what it is. Your Dad taught you what it was during that vacation. "What vacation? I have no idea what you are talking about." Umm, never mind. It was nothing.....Hmm, I guess Bio really did forget when Jin told him too. Oh well, see you all next time .
