I.M. Bored: A Legacy in 10 Generations - Gen 4 Part 1
We’re back with the start of Gen 4 taking the reins. We’ve got a primary color inspired title them to carry us through the next 3 generations. And an unmarried heir ready to pop.
Let’s get started.
“You’d better not be thinking about kissing my great-aunt.”
“Would you be upset if I told you I already had?”
“No. But that is because I know my aunt.”
“Did you know your great-uncle dislikes your grandmother.”
“That doesn’t surprise me. Grandma seems to go out of her way to piss people off.”
“You’re taking this awfully well.”
“I’m a pregnant male plantsim, nothing can faze me. Not even a groom with cold feet.”
“I don’t have cold feet.”
“Well maybe a little cool.”
“But at least glaciers move, right? We’re going to get married. Today… Sometime…”
Jason and Babylon were eventually married, see Babylon is wearing a wedding ring, even though it took a while.
The two then proceeded to stalk each other around the house oblivious to anyone else.
And once again, Eva out Family-sim’s her mother by autonomously talking to her son’s belly.
“Hey, little brother! Why’d they make you heir and not me?”
“I think it’s because I became an adult first.”
“That’s not fair.”
“Did you want to be heir?”
“Would I have to get all big and fat like you?”
“You or your wife, yes.”
“Wife? You mean a girl? Yuck!”
“So are you okay with me being heir?”
“I guess so. So does this big belly mean that I am going to be an uncle?”
“Cool. I am definitely much more of the uncle type than the father type.”
“Good to know.”
Um… Girls… He’s gay. And not romance.
“But he’s a hot family sim!”
I swear my game is totally messed up. Just not in a catastrophic way yet.
“There, I’ve made everything better!”
I love good witches. While they aren’t as powerful as some people make them out to be, they can be useful. Eva here is clearing up a random cockroach infestation and making the place pretty again. Evil witches are kind of pointless gameplay wise, but are really good for the lulz. And neutral, while okay, aren’t as powerful as good ones. I’d also like to point out that it appears that the core of Eva’s power is from the crotch.
Okay this slide is here for one reason and one reason alone.
Jason had this neverending want to woohoo with Babylon 5 in a hammock in his want panel. And went, sure and had him go relax and then had Babylon 5 woohoo with him. And Yes I clicked Woohoo, it was the only option available.
You see where Babylon 5 is waaaaaay in the background? Squint your eyes. He’s there.
Yeah, apparently he got Jason pregnant from all the way over there. How I want to know. HOW??? And in the process I had to move objects on Jason to get him to get off of the hammock. That hammock quickly got sold but I was still faced with a conundrum, do I keep the glitch pregnancy or terminate it?
I flipped a coin. Heads I keep it. Tails I don’t. George Washington has spoken.
I just hope I don’t regret this.
“So how’s it going, Baby?”
“This game sucks.”
“Bump it with your hip.”
“My belly’s in the way.”
“Well don’t say I didn’t try to help.”
“Watch out! He’s going to eat the kid on the raft!”
“You are not helping, Jason.”
“You’re going to regret this!”
“You scream like a girl, boy.”
“Gee, thanks. I’m going to regret what?”
“Just wait and see. You’re going to regret this.”
“Dang it, why do ghosts have to be so melodramatic? Cryptic messages are great and all, but seriously why can’t one of them just spell it out? I’m a pregnant plantsim who never attended school. What does he expect? Genius?”
While Babylon may regret something indefinite, I think Guld here regrets following Michael home from school.
“Fantasy smells worse than helicopter exhaust.”
“I’m going to get you, kid.”
“I’m dodging negative aspiration, what are you whoaing about?”
“My belly got bigger.”
“Is that possible?”
“Go eat a yoghurt.”
“Um I just wanted to announce that I am pregnant.”
Thanks, Jason. We already knew that. Go back to bed. Seriously, his motives dropped like crazy. If He wasn’t sleeping he was chugging down eggplant juice to work on his LTW of maxing 7 skills. What is it with my sims and that want in this game? Anyway, so if you don’t see a lot of him, that would be why. Crappy pregnant sim. I am regretting this.
“The shark’s going to eat the kid on the raft.”
“I know, I know!”
Seriously, Babylon spent his whole pregnancy either playing games or fishing. If it was night, he played games. If it was day, he fished with the random swim in the pool to raise his water need.
So it was really no surprise that one his way one morning to change into everyday he went into labor.
A spin and a twirl later, we had the first baby of Generation 5, Willow Rosenburg Bored.
Willow is named after the best friend and awesome witch in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She’s got Green eyes, red hair, and alien skin. Now if she has elf ears she’d be about perfect.
“Morning, baby, come to show me my new grandchild? Can’t it wait until I go potty?”
“Um, not exactly.”
“Since when did we have a butler?”
“Hello! I’m having a baby over here.”
“Oh he’s lovely. What’s his name?”
“Tamahome. Since he’s got black hair and blue eyes.”
“I hope the hand off doesn’t mean what I think it means.”
** Tamahome is named after the romantic love interest for the heroine in FushigiYuugi.
Unfortunately, the hand off does mean that we’ve got a third baby on the way.
My game, it hates me.
The final?baby is named Rusty Ryan after character played by Brad Pitt in the Ocean’s Trilogy.
Three babies. Sigh. And I just sold all of the extraneous kid stuff.
“Hey congrats on having 3 kids.”
“Thanks! The doctor says we’re going to have at least two more.”
“Two more!!! What kind of doctor did you go to?”
“The kind that seem to know everything…”
“Oh dear, have you told Babylon 5 yet?”
“I’ve got to talk to you about something.”
“What happened to your belly?”
“It’s just the mesh. I’ll fix it later.”
“So what is it you wanted to tell me.”
“I’m having twins.”
“You’re happy about this?”
“I’m a family sim.”
“I love babies. Heck the reason I am standing here right now is because I had a want to cuddle Willow that the creator was nice enough to let me fulfill.”
“Awww. Hi, little girl, Daddy loves you.”
“I think she knows that.”
“That’s good. Because I do you know, love her. All of our family, even.”
“You suck at talking don’t you?”
“That’s okay, I didn’t marry you for your words anyway.”
“I married you for your fantastic window washing skills.”
“Mad cleaning skills, I have them.”
“And I think our daughter just earned her first memory.”
Oh dear is right.
I decided that for shits and giggles to set up a home business and not do anything with it.
Eva is technically the owner of the lot since I was getting annoyed at having to transfer items to Eva so we can sell things at the other business. It also helps Babylon 5 along with his LTW since he’s shown absolutely no interest in getting a job and he much prefers to be a house husband and taking care of the babies.
So go invisible bandatron, go!
As he stated, the PJ mesh that Jason was wearing didn’t have a pregnancy morph but a quick trip to the dresser fixed that.
Then it was time to go fishing with Babylon 5. Or at least attempt fishing, Jason wasn’t terribly good at it.
“Hey you wake up! Get out of my bed, I need to talk to you!”
“Fine be that way. But I’ll be seeing you soon. Bwahahahahaaaaa!”
“You’re no fun.”
“Hi Toby! It looks like someone’s happy to see me!”
Seriously the family was pretty laid back while Jason’s pregnancy went on.
Babylon 5 upped his gaming enthusiasm whileNery studied magic.
“Oh dear, I look sick!”
Some sims can rock the speckles other sims not so much. I think Nery falls into the not so much category.
As for Corbin, he rolled up an hourly obsession to hunt bugs. I think it was because he finally realized what a harridan he’d married and didn’t want to be bothered with it.
Speaking of harridans…
“So you managed to have a second pregnancy…”
“Well not me personally, and it was a mistake on the game’s part.”
“I don’t care. The rest of us only were allowed one pregnancy and I can’t allow you to continue to smear our family’s good name in the mud. You should renounce your heirship now.”
“I’m not joking. If my father, our sainted founder, and myself were only allowed pregnancy. The rest of our line is only allowed the same. Your mother found a way around it, and I can admire her cleverness but this… Jason’s pregnancy is an abomination. I will not allow it.”
“It’s not your decision.”
“I’m not finished. I am the heir, Grandma. Nothing you say or do will stop that. All of your lectures and all of your so-called care of this family has very nearly driven it apart. Your daughter hates and fears you, your son-in-law despises you, your husband avoids you…”
“Michael loves me!”
“Yes, he does. Congratulations, Grandma. One person does. Don’t drive them away.”
“What about you?”
“Me? I love you Grandma, you’re family. It’s what family does, they love each other inspite of their flaws and differences. You might want to try it some time.”
“Whoa. That didn’t sound like a resounding yes. What’s got you down?”
“I heard your argument with Grandma.”
“Oh. I’m sorry you had to hear that. You shouldn’t be exposed to things like that at your age.”
“I’m older than you are!”
“Technically. But you’re pure sim, I’m not.”
“I wish I were big like you.”
“You will be in time. Don’t rush it. I wish I’d been able to have a childhood or even have the chance to go to college. But it wasn’t meant to be. That’s why I’m so glad that I have you as a big brother.”
“You wouldn’t be cheating now, would you?”
“Would I do that?”
“Heh, at least I taught you something.”
“So what were you arguing with Grandma about?”
“She doesn’t want me to be heir.”
“But you’re a great heir! We’re already halfway to the end and everyone loves you.”
“Grandma doesn’t see things that way. She wants you to be heir.”
“Me? But I don’t want to be heir. I’ve decided that I want to be like Auntie Bones and Anime and live forever. Dying seems awfully permanent.”
“It is, Mike. So you still don’t mind that I was made heir over you?”
“Nah. It’s cool. I hope grandma gets better and isn’t angry at you anymore.”
“Me too, big brother. Me too.”
Drama over for now, Nery has now learned enough to start glowing…
And apparently I’ve lost track of time and it is time for the triplets to grow up.
About to keel over Jason ages up Willow.
Who gets a much needed make over.
Eva then uses her crotchly powers to help Jason not die long enough to suck down another eggplant juice getting his LTW in the process and then go to bed. Sorry I missed the picture, my mind was other things, like aging up the other babies without it triggering Jason.
Rusty is a Virgo with a personality of 10/6/4/3/4. He is a cute little boy but he lacks the elf ears.
Sorry kid, you’re not going to be the heir.
Tamahome grew up into grey hair and elf ears but is also not in the running because he doesn’t have the alien skin recessive -- I checked. He is a Libra with 1/10/7/10/6.
So as of right now Willow is the heiress at least until we see what Jason spawns. She is an Aries with stats of 10/10/4/4/7.
Don’t look so happy about it, kid. You don’t have long to wait.
“What are you doing here, Mom?”
“Can’t I watch my great-grandchild come into the world?”
“I don’t know, can you, Fantasy? Can you keep from making snide commentary?”
“I don’t see where that’s any of your business, Nery? It’s not like this is your actual grandchild.”
Up first we have Celes , named after the character from Final Fantasy VI. She’s got blond hair and blue eyes and green skin so if she’s got the ears she’ll be in the running for the heir.
“Oh did I come in at a bad time?”
“Yes, Aunt Bones.”
We have baby pass.
Yes, Fantasy is a popularity sim.
And in the midst of chaos, Jason goes to give birth again.
I mean how dare they not make the bed considering that person sleeping in it just got up to spawn.
And we have our second baby, G’Kar. He’s got black hair and Orange eyes – I gave random townies recessives when I was setting up the hood it looks like Jason was one of them.
He’s named after a Babylon 5 character who had orange eyes and unusual skin. And so if he’s got the elf ears, he will also be in the running for heir.
Corbin proves he is totally awesome by autonomously tucking in all of his great-grandchildren.
Fantasy also shows that she isn’t perfect by burning lobster thermador. I hate to say it, I had a bit of schadenfreude at this. Not that I pointed and laughed, well I did, but still it was well deserved.
Both Jason and Babylon 5 rolled up so many wants for their kids it was bit of a race as to who would actually teach each triplet their various toddler skills.
“Okay, I’ll teach Willow to talk. But then I get to potty train Tamahome.”
“But I wanted to potty train him.”
“Tough. You’ve got to go to work.”
“I could stay home.”
“You could but I’d still get to potty train him.”
“Fine. But I get to teach him a nursery rhyme!”
You thought I was joking? Nope. Ten want slots all filled with various kid related wants. It was so very refreshing. This is what a family sim should look like!
Nery even got a little toddler training action with his rolling the want to potty train Rusty. I love you, Neryand I don’t regret for one moment flagging Babylon as your child. You play the role of the awesome step-parent/grandparent with style.
“Did you save any nursery rhyme training for me?”
“Sorry Grandpa, but Jason seems to have cornered the market on that.”
“It’s okay. I just miss the good old days when I got to teach your mom all of her skills.”
“Awww… I’m sure Mom appreciated it.”
“I hope I didn’t screw up too badly as a father.”
“I think Mom turned out okay. Besides, we’ll all screw up it’s just a matter of degree.”
“True. Now give an old man a hug.”
“I love you, Grandpa.”
All too soon, it seems, it was time for Michael Westen to grow up.
“What a fine looking young man! Quite heir-like, don’t you think?”
“Are you ever going to drop it, Fantasy?”
“Good, then we can go back to ignoring you.”
Michael decided that the best way to get what he wanted was to be a Knowledge/Fortune sim. He currently also wants to own five top level businesses which will not be happening. I’ll give him the college re-roll later and swap him around to see what turns up.
Also since he’ll want as many scholarships as possible, I got him a job in something random. Fantasy wants him to go to college, be an overachiever and get an A+. She never rolled this many wants for her own kid.
But I am not doing this to make her happy. Michael isn’t a bad kid, just had bad timing.
Speaking of the heir…
“I feel oddly fulfilled and yet I haven’t done anything.”
That’s right, the business did its job and Babylon has reached his LTW, now he wants to Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens. Excuse me for a moment while I point and laugh. Hell no. One LTW will be it for you.
“Don’t do it that way, you need to ease the bug into the jar.”
“I think I can catch bugs without your help, dear. Why don’t you take a walk or something if you are feeling restless?”
“Maybe I will.”
“That’d be nice.”
“Ow! Ow! Ow! I said not to sting me. Not sting me more. Ow!”
While Fantasy is being chased by bees, it’s time for another birthday.
First up is G’kar.
Oh and did you know that Cyd Roseland is hot? The random townie would like to make that clear.
Who got the ears. So this definitely puts him in the running for heirship.
He’s a Virgo with 8/3/7/3/6.
If that personality looks familiar, it should. It’s the same personality that Corbin, Eva, and Babylon 5 have had.
What is it with my female sims growing up bald?
Anyway she also got the ears so she is eligible for heirship. Her stats are 8/4/10/7/6 – Cancer.
You know Cyd, it’s probably not a good idea to complain about Eva to Eva...
And it isn’t any better if you complain about her son.
I looked around and honestly I couldn’t figure out what his problem was. No one was naked, both Eva and Michael had high hygiene. About all I could tell was that Cyd didn’t like them. Tough cookies.
To prevent myself from going overboard on the toddler spam, I limited myself to one picture of all of them. Okay on three… One… Two… Three….
Sadly, the following evening the inevitable happened. Grim came for Corbin.
“It is your time, Corbin Bored.”
“Oh thank goodness.”
“Wait right there.”
“Does anyone know how to get to the other side of the hedge? I would be most appreciative.”
“Right. Carry on with your mourning if you please.”
Please note who isn’t in that long line coming down the sidewalk…
“Um… Sorry about the scythe through the head.”
“I’m still waiting for Death here.”
“Right. Everyone here? Mourning going on unabated. Good. Now I can get started. Corbin Bored, your time has come!”
“Took you long enough. A man can only hunt bugs for so long.”
“Well, sorry about that. We’ll have to do better next time.”
“Just give me my drink and I’ll be on my way.”
“My, why the great hurry?”
“Look I don’t want to go into it in front of the kids can I tell you on the way?”
“Carry on then. It’s a long way to Elysium and I do love a good story.”
“Well it all started with a green girl…”
Speaking of former green girls, Guess who missed her husband’s funeral? That’s right. Fantasy. She was gardening on the other side of the house and when grim bumped that out of her queue she decided that she needed to go take a nap instead. Grrrr… If bloody Samantha Ottomas can go sigh over the death the least you can do is cry.
She doesn’t even do that. Grrrr…
WORST FAMILY SIM EVER!
So Goodbye, Corbin Bored. You managed to top 5 Lifetime wants and fathered the awesome Eva. You also managed to pass on your strange personality to three of your descendants. Your calm and boobie obsession will be missed.
So on this sad note, I bid adieu.
Until next time, Happy Simming!
