Hello! Welcome to my Creation To Future challenge! The
challenge was created by joandsarah77 over at Desirable
Discourses. The format is that of a cheesy 80’s style sitcom. Like
most sitcoms, it is a little disjointed. Also like most sitcoms, Plot
and Character Development are stupid, non-existent, or both.
Finally, just like in all sitcoms, there is no recap of prior events.
Because this story is shot in the same ‘hood as all my other stories,
you may see Sims you recognize, and you’ll probably see modern
things as well.
BRYAN: Why are we carrying water to the plants again?
BELLA: Because they’re thirsty.
BRYAN: Why can’t they walk over and get a drink, then?
BELLA: Because they don’t have any legs.
BRYAN: Well then, why do I have to help? I want to catch fish!
BELLA: Because I’m very big right now, and I can’t move very
BRYAN: Then how will you run away if a wolf comes?
BELLA: I won’t be able to.
(Bryan thinks about that for a while)
BRYAN: Don’t worry -- I’ll protect you! I can chase the wolf off.
BELLA: I know. (kisses him) You’re my big strong man.
BELLA: Eeeek, Bryan! A wolf is menacing me!
BELLA (slightly louder): Eeeeek, eeeeek! A wolf! Help!
(Bryan pauses in his snoring, farts, and begins snoring again,
BELLA: Right. (bops wolf on the nose with a rolled-up leaf) Bad
(The wolf whines and slinks away, tail between his legs)
BRYAN: Hey, I think the Big Waterfall in the Sky is happy with
us! Look, the plants are getting wet without us having to carry
water to them.
BRYAN: Aw, I guess the Big Waterfall in the Sky wasn’t that
happy with us after all.
BRYAN: Oh well, you can’t win ‘em all. If you want me, I’ll be
catching fish with that pointy thing on a stick before it gets dark.
(Bella breathes heavily and groans)
BRYAN: Bella, please be quiet.
(Bella goes into Lamaze breathing)
BRYAN: Bella, you’re going to scare the fish away!
BELLA: Aaaaaaaugh! Bryan, get over here RIGHT NOW!
(Bryan rushes over as night falls)
BRYAN (to Clarence*): Hi there! Hi! (to Bella) What is that? It’s
BELLA: It’s a baby.
BRYAN: What’s a baby? It looks like a really small person, only
bald. And round. And soft. And with (coos to Clarence) bootiful
eNOWmus eyeses, yes yes yes!
BELLA: A baby is a really small person. This one is a boy named
Clarence, and we have to take care of him.
BRYAN: (skeptically) Clarence? (rapidly, as Bella glares at him)
Of course! Perfect name, perfect!
*Note from esmeiolanthe: I am using the Sims’ names rather than the
characters’ names because I have a poor memory for things like that.
BRYAN (V.O.): Wow, these plants are really happy!
BELLA (V.O.): No, I don’t think they are.
BRYAN (V.O.): Sure they are! Look, they’ve got all those pretty
flying things all around them.
BELLA (V.O.): (sleepily) I don’t think those are good flying things.
BRYAN (V.O.): But the other flying things are good things. Why
would these flying things be bad things?
BELLA (V.O.): I don’t know, but they are. The plants without the
flying things are happier than the ones that have them.
BRYAN (V.O.): Can plants be happy? How can you tell? I can’t
tell when plants are happy or not. Do they smile, or -- ?
BELLA (V.O.): Go to sleep, Bryan. We need to sleep while
Clarence is asleep.
(Clarence starts to cry)
BELLA (V.O.): You woke him up, you go see what he wants.
BRYAN: I think this baby is defective.
BELLA: No he isn’t.
BRYAN: Yes he is. He definitely smells funny.
BELLA: Are you sure the funny smell is coming from the baby?
BRYAN: (buries his face in Clarence’s diaper and inhales deeply)
Yeah, I think so.
BRYAN: Look, this tree has put out lots of red things!
BELLA: Can we eat them?
BRYAN: I dunno. (puts apple in his mouth and bites down with a
satisfyingly crisp CRUNCH) Yeah, this is good. We should gather
all of these from everywhere and keep them so nobody else can
have any. They’re really good.
BELLA: Who else would want some of the red things?
BRYAN: I dunno. Anybody. They’re really good.
BELLA: No, I meant who besides us is there to eat them?
BRYAN: I don’t know. But if there is someone else to eat them, I
don’t want them to. (pause, then, fearfully) Do you think wolves
like red things?
BELLA (soothingly): Of course not.
BRYAN: Look! This plant has also put out a bunch of red things!
BELLA: Can we eat them?
BYRAN: I dunno. (puts tomato in his mouth and bites down with a
juicy SQUISH) Yeah, they’re okay. I don’t mind if the wolves want
BRYAN: You know, Bella, you’re really smart. You always have
the answer for everything.
BELLA: No I don’t.
BRYAN: Yes you do! I learn so much every time I talk to you.
BELLA: Well, I doubt that’s true, but it’s very sweet of you to say.
BRYAN: No, it’s true. I bet next time I talk to you, I’ll learn
something I didn’t know.
BRYAN: What are you doing?
BELLA: I’m feeding the baby.
BRYAN: Doesn’t he want a fish? Or grilled tubes? (doubtfully) I
have some rocks somewhere if he’s interested.
BELLA: He can’t eat any of those things. He doesn’t have teeth
BRYAN: (with astonished revelation) Is that what those are for?
Wow, that’s awesome!
I used Chris Hatch’s baby clothes mod and Theraven’s fur diapers
to give Clarence his nifty outfit. Although normally getting clothes
for free is against the rules, there is no other way to get baby
clothes, and joandsarah77 has said it’s okay. Nursing the baby
comes courtesy of BoilingOil’s Feed Baby mod. So far, it works
like a charm.
I hope you enjoyed this episode of Movin’ On Up!, and that you
will join me next time for more historically inaccurate fun!
Until next time, Happy Simming!
