Welcome again to the Absolutely Crazy Matriarchy. If you haven't read any of the previous chapters, you probably should. Take it away, Fire. ...Fire?
"Oh, sorry. Got a bit distracted." Introduction, please? "Right. In the last chapter, our heir Beka Chandler became a Good Witch and finally managed to get herself a job. And then she got knocked up by her long-suffering boyfriend Damion. She's eaten suspiciously large amounts of cheesecake, and she's barfing a lot. I smell twins." So do I.
And we begin where we left off - with Beka taking a ride on the porcelain express. "Very funny. Ugh." That's three times, Beka. Your mother only threw up once in each of her pregnancies.
Speaking of Susan, she seems to be in a fairly contemplative mood. "No, I'm dreading the years of nappies, bottles and screaming kids. Once was hard enough." You're going to love being a grandma. Admit it. "Yeah."
I wouldn't touch that if I were you, Susan. "But it looks so interesting." Your funeral.
SNAP! Bahahahaha, that is the freakin' funniest thing I have seen since Jackie smustled herself into the wall in Chapter 3.2.
"That HURT!" Well, duh. Don't mess with witch's stuff. Unless you are a witch.
You never learn, do you, Susan? "Must... get.... drink." That's just bizarre, the drinking thing. Really.
And our friendly neighbourhood ghost comes to visit again. "Yay! Bed!" Notice how she has her outerwear on? I didn't think ghosts felt the cold.
POP That's bump number one, ladies and gentlemen. "Whoo, too many grilled cheeses." Um. No, that's not it.
Bump number two. I'm kinda rushing this pregnancy since I hate pregnancies in Sims. Mind, this one hasn't been to bad thanks to the Throne of Light. "What about the barfing?" The Throne of Light can't stop that, sorry.
"Ugh. I'm fat, I'm hormonal, and the baby is due in... how long?" About... ten Sim hours. "Argh."
Hey, townie, where's the wedding? I love having the Celebrations Stuff pack.
"She's going to pop soon, right?" Yuh huh. Keep your fingers crossed for an heir. "Zzzzzz..."
"Um, Fire? Little help here?" Huh? "Labour! Starting now!" I'll get the camera. "I was kind of hoping for painkillers of some description!"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" And the life cycle of the Sim begins again. "Don't you dare go all David Attenborough on me, Fire!" Way to break the fourth wall, kiddo. "I don't care! I'm in LABOUR! AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"
"Baby! Again!" Yep, I got twins. Three cheers for cheesecake. Oh, they're both girls, too. I'll need an heir poll now. :)
This is Bella Chandler. Bella is named after Bella Swan from Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. Bella is a human who falls in love with a vampire. She has her mother's eyes and hair, and her dad's skintone. And the standard baby face. Moving on...
And this is Zoey Chandler. Zoey is named after Zoey Redbird from the House of Night series. Zoey is an ordinary girl who is turned into an extraordinary vampyre fledgling. She has her dad's eyes and hair, and her mother's skintone. And, of course, the baby face.
I switched the nursery and Beka's room so the kids would have more room. When they're kids, I'll move Beka into Holly's old room and renovate the top floor.
"So, did I tell you I totally had twins?" "Erm, I was there, Beka." Beka's gone a bit loopy. Must be the hormones.
Damion has stopped by to see the girls. And he's even helped to take care of them. "Aww, they both look like their mother." And you, Damion. That pale skin didn't come from Beka.
Aww, Zoey's a little cutie! Except she seems to have inherited her father's nose. Dang. "Funny voice!" But no evil genius gene as yet. Good. Her personality is 10/3/2/2/10, by the way. Didn't inherit any of Damion's sloppiness.
Due to my horrendous timing, I missed getting a shot of Bella in the air. She's got the Damion nose too. :( "Mummy glowink!" Her personality is 7/3/3/10/10. Fairly similar to Zoey. Why they have maxed out niceness is beyond me. Their mother's only a five.
Toddler training time. I have employed liberal amounts of Smart Milk. I really hate this point of the Legacy. Takes ages.
Aww, that is so cute! I love the Huggle interaction. "Bella huggle Zo!" "Zo huggle Bella!" I have a soft spot for toddlers.
Aww, poor Popcorn. "Mrowl?" "Bella huggle Poppy!" Heheh, her eyes are all bulgy. Poor kitty.
Potty training. Enough said. "Better than nappies." Only slightly. Potties have to be cleaned out, remember?
And here is le nursery. For now. Bella's side is blue, Zoey's is pink. I really like the Freetime nursery sets. I do get sick of the base game cribs after a while.
Aw, man. That's the second toasted grandfather clock. I have no idea how this one broke. "I'll get the broom." And I'll get a new clock.
"Fweee! Bella fwying!" Remind you of someone? This looks just like the picture of Holly throwing Beka in the air.
"Heehehehe!" Bella's an adrenaline junkie, it seems. "Mummy frow Bella!"
And another birthday rolls around. Bella's up first. She's a bit of a camera hog. "Pwetty lights!"
I am really bad at birthday shots. Oh well, she's cute. "I feel tall!"
And the ritual is repeated. "Make a wish, honey!" "Mummy make lights go 'way!" Toddlers.
And here's another awful growing up shot. "Yay! Mobility at last!" And a better vocabulary.
I've fixed up the girls' rooms. Bella's room is on the left, Zoey's on the right. I love the Family Fun stuff. Well, that's it for Chapter 3.4. Next time we'll see an attempt at private school, more birthdays, and more craziness. Of course.
"Hugs time!" These two are like BFFs. I hope they stay as close during the heir poll. "The what?" Never mind.
