Welcome back to the Superfrog ISBI!Last time, we saw Sketchs teen years – which meant lots ofboyfriends, lots of hauntings, and lots of death. It seems Sketch Superjust cant shake off the hold of the Reaper. Also, Makoto St. Julienpassed away, after giving good advice and talking to a paper cup henamed after Vamsi – his worst enemy, when she was alive. I think hesecretly missed her. Also, I should adopt old couples more often!Anyway, at the end of the chapter, Sketch grew into an adult.Onto this chapter! :)
We rejoin Sketch to find her sobbing. Theres nothing unusual aboutthat, but this time she isnt sobbing about death – its the fact I didntsend her to uni.“Wah! And now this topless walk-by will think Im strange!”“No...you obviously need someone to talk to.”“And you obviously need a real shirt rather than a paint one.”
The next morning, as planned, the gypsy matchmaker shows up, anddemands her payment. In cash, because cheques cant be cashed inby people who keep all of their money in their pockets.“You want me to pay you? But I dont have a lot of-”“No money, no life partner. Forever alone.”“Gah, fine.”
Sketch got the BEST possible life partner, ever. Ladies andgentlemen, Goopy Gilscarbo!...what? I really like Goopy.
“Hi there, Goopy. Im Sketch, and were going to be very happytogether.”“Alright! How many dates are we talking here?”“Dates? Youre stuck with me for the rest of your life!”“Aw man. Im not usually into the whole being-tied-down thing.”“Me either. In fact, Im rolling a negative marriage want.”
“Well just have to make the most of it,” Sketch decided, “we donthave to get married, but we do have to live together.”“Okay. Ill move in.”Behind them, the gypsy wandered away, still peering into her crystalball, “I wonder if theres anyone in this ball for me?”
As it happens, it seems Goopy has some creativity points too, as hesnot too bad at the guitar.Though Sketch seems less impressed – perhaps because its herguitar?
And because it was so successful last time, or because it saved mybacon when my Torch Holder died, Ive adopted another set of elders.Mostly because Star and Alan would have been kicking around aselders by this point. But anyway.This is Leo Wilkie. He looks a tad grumpy.
And this is Vyn Scott. She seems to be slightly more cheerful.Who knows, they may end up being awesome like my last adopted oldcouple.
The first thing these two do is play catch, so I doubt well have anotherextreme fighting old couple.Its funny how Sketch was all alone when she woke up this morning,and now she has a life partner and a couple of old people living withher.
Next item on the agenda: get started on the next generation.Of course, now theres more people in the house, there are morepeople to interfere. And, boy, do they interfere a lot.“I approve of woohoo!”“Leo? Get the llama out of here!”“Aw man, I wanted to join in...”
They a nice couple. But most of my matchmaker-dropped spouseshave been pretty good so far, even Joe.Ive also noticed Ive managed to kill of every spouse dropped to meso far in some sort of accident. What does this say about Goopysfuture?
What, no lullaby? Get out of bed and try again!I am very much a simmer who wants babies and wants them now. Inmy WYDC, it took seven tries for my main sim to get pregnant with thisone guy.Anyway, moving on.
The second time was a success :DAlthough, pregnancy has been a bit rough on Sketch. She wouldntstop throwing up for most of the first day.
“Im pregnant and I hate it.”I do feel bad for Sketch. Hopefully the rest of her pregnancy will runsmoothly.
Goopy has also started leaving date gifts. I have feeling we will havetons of these rose by the end of the third generation.
And just to prove that Goopy does wear his tartan from time to time,here he is! Smustling with our new-elders.Even Leo is joining in!“Sketch should really join us!”Too bad shes really tired from carrying his bed, right?
“Aw man, Im out of time with the others.”Goopy is completely oblivious to Sketchs suffering.
Sketch does take time out of her busy schedule to sing kareokethough. Look, she even has back-up dancers, in matching greypyjamas!Ladies and Gentlemen, Miss Super and the Smustlers!
“Watching them punch each other reminds me of Vamsi and Makoto.”Except these two get along much better. I like them. Then again, I alsoliked Vamsi and Makoto.
The next day, I had reinstalled ACR again. I expect Ill have pulled itout of my game by next week, as I can never make my mind up, butthere you go. Autonomous romance is back.This means Goopy and Sketch decided to spend some time togetherin the hot tub. I wouldnt have said a woman in Sketchs conditionshould be in a hot tub in the middle of winter, but Goopy obviouslydisagrees.
Speaking of Sketchs condition, her pregnancy has finally startedshowing, after hours of nausea and complaining.
Vyn decides to write about everything in her diary, but is kind ofworried about Goopy reading it, apparently.Goopys not even paying any attention to Vyn, so I have no idea whyshes freaking out.
While that was happening in the living room, Sketch was trying tocatch up on some sleep in the Haunted Room, only to find herselfhaunted. Only not by a ghost, but by Leo.He relaxed by her side pretty much all night. Goopy gave up waitingfor his bed and slept in the bed in the quarantine room.Leo has an odd fascination for the Haunted Room.
“Good morning, Sketch!”“Why do I get the feeling hes been there all night? Im supposed to wakeup next to Goopy, not Leo!”
The interfering elders continue to interfere as the day gets started.Sketch wishes Goopy a good morning by kissing his hand, while Vynstands dangerously close by.“I just wanted to be part of the moment.”
Then again, I like Vyn and Leo, so I generally ignore their interfering.Sometimes, its sweet, though.“Hello, baby, Im Vyn! Your mother and I are wearing matchingpyjamas!”
Seeing as they had both pulled an all-nighter, Goopy and Vyn decidedit was time for bed. The same bed, apparently.There was no cuddling, they stayed on their halves of the bed, so Iguess theyre just great friends.
I dont think Sketch was happy about it, though.“I call this one Get Out of My Marriage Bed, Woman!”
The family is quickly turning very music-orientated.Like Leo here! He started playing guitar, and hes pretty good – thoughSketch is better.
Vyn has taken up singing as well. One day, my ISBI will turn into amusical by accident.
Leos music seems to put the graveyard to sleep. Vamsis the firstghost Ive seen for a few days.
Vamsi then started picking on Vyn. It also made things sociallyawkward – Leo was adamant that his guitar playing wasnt thathorrifying.
Vyn then realises the ghosts cant get her if shes asleep – andpromptly jumps into bed next to Sketch.Sketch moves over as much as she can, it seems.
Goopy is thrilled about it, though.“I call this one “Theres Two Women in My Bed!”
With Vyn asleep, Vamsi has to turn her haunting attentions elsewhere.To Leo.After that, she left for her grave, scaring Goopy once on the way out.
The night after Vamsis Endless Haunting, the first member ofgeneration four decides to make an appearance.Generation four? Already? Wow, time flies when youre not writing plot!
Sketch was happy with her baby, “Look, Goopy! A beautiful baby girl!”Goopy was less than happy, “A baby? Oh! But I wanted a dragon!”Leo was also disappointed, but it looks like hes staring straight at theplumbbob thats hiding just out of the shot. Hmm. No, Leo, dont breakthe fourth wall.
The new baby was named Goblin, after a little stone goblin I found onmy desk.Hey, it could be worse. The next thing I found after the goblin was aplastic pig.
Goblin is quickly put into the bouncy chair so that she doesnt end upon the floor for hours on end.But she throws a tantrum. A newborn, throwing a tantrum.
Goblin settles for glaring at anyone who wanders past.Anyone want to bet that the kid is mean?
“Aw, its okay, Goblin. I used to like throwing tantrums, too.”Sketch and Goopy are pretty good at being parents, which is nice tosee. Though Goopy did leave Goblin on the kitchen floor a couple oftimes.
Leo and Vyn decided they weren t going to interfere when it would behelpful, but instead started hanging out in the Haunted Room moreand more.
The next day, all of the adults manage to sit down for a dinnertogether. This is a rare sight.Sure, its hot dogs, and sure, both elders showed up in their pyjamas,but still. This happens so rarely I felt the need to include it.
Pretty soon, it was time to throw Goblin into toddlerhood. Time flies.
I dont see too much of Sketch in her, but theres still time. At theminute, she is definitely Goopys daughter.Anyway! Thats it for this time!Thanks for reading, see you next time!
