Bass-Ackwards Apoc Part 5

  1. 1. We’re back again. Lots of lifts last time and a few other not so happy things. <br />Fair warning, liberal use of elixir for its negative use is going to mess with the ages of people. It messes with my head. It will mess with yours. I suggest you just do what I do, smile and nod and hope it goes away soon.<br />How about a tour of the new house now that Politics is lifted?<br />
  2. 2. Top, top floor. <br />Note that everything is covered by a roof. The roof may be way up in the air. But it is there. <br />Go Music…<br />
  3. 3. Some of the remnants of the tower. These are the things I can’t move because of athletic. The toddler blanket is still there – it just apparently decided to go invisible. The two computers are some of the computers that the household has gotten from networking. <br />There are more in people’s inventories.<br />Trust me, it gets annoying. <br />
  4. 4. The little floating bit of wall is left over from the tower and has a painting that I can’t move yet. <br />The second floor isn’t too much yet. I kept it open to accommodate career rewards and instruments. The far room is the nursery. <br />
  5. 5. The Nursery close up for now.<br />Once Athletic is lifted the two twin beds will be moving here. I’m also likely to add another fridge for baby bottles. <br />
  6. 6. Ground floor. Still communal sleeping for the needs boosting. And the main room/kitchen is open so that Jumbok can affect the whole place.<br />Out back and under the awning is the grill.<br />
  7. 7. Look, they have hamburgers. Mmmm… Hamburgers. <br />
  8. 8. Finally I built a wedding chapel/greenhouse. Since plants need to be covered too per the Music rules. This made the most sense to me. A little spot of green in a white world. <br />But I think that’s enough of a tour on to the random action and lifts. Because we know that is all that you want to see. <br />
  9. 9. “Glen, it’s me, Baby. Your first woohoo!”<br />“I forgot all about that when I aged up!”<br />
  10. 10. “But, Baby. I love you.”<br />“Tough.”<br />
  11. 11. “But…”<br />“Look, Xavier. I like you. As a friend. But you moved me in here to marry your great-granddaughter. And that’s what I’m gonna do. From here on, we’re just friends and family.”<br />“What about friends with benefits?”<br />“No.”<br />
  12. 12. “I have this eerie feeling that someone was talking about me.”<br />
  13. 13. “Daddy!!!”<br />“Heya Princess!”<br />“Did you miss me?”<br />“I always miss my girl.”<br />“Where’s Mommy?”<br />“I don’t think she is feeling very well.”<br />
  14. 14. “Why’s that, Daddy?”<br />“You’ll see, Princess.”<br />
  15. 15. “Morning sickness over?”<br />“Yeah. Do you still love me even though I’m fat?”<br />“Come to bed, Kori.”<br />
  16. 16. “Hey! Remember me!”<br />Wally!!!!<br />“Not Wally you dolt! Me! I’m hungry. Where’s the damn fridge!”<br />*sniff* I’m so sorry, Wally. I promise to make it up to you.<br />“No worries. Although can I have a couch?”<br />You can have anything you want. I promise. <br />“Oh Goodie.”<br />
  17. 17. “So the princess slayed the dragon and saved the knight from a gruesome fate. And they rode off into the sunset and lived happily ever after.”<br />“Read it again, Mommy.”<br />“Okay, Pumpkin.”<br />
  18. 18. “I wish I were the brave princess to save the day. I’m just so tired.”<br />---<br />Meta time!<br />This time it is about plot. The bunnies, they keep biting. My sims, they keep throwing me plot. I am really trying to ignore it and focus on the challenge. But it may seep through. This is a case in point. <br />I have the hack “noinstantloves” in game from Pescado. I like it. However this time, despite everything, it is messing with my head. 2.0 is not and never does fall in love with Koriand’r. However, she fell in love with him at the first flirt. So basically, Kori is in a loveless marriage. She deserves better and it breaks my heart. So I write it that way. I am not going to take this the way my sims wanted me to. But let’s just say that this marriage really typifies the apocalypse and the hard choices that people have to make with them. <br />
  19. 19. “Hey, kids. You might want to be a boy and not gay. I’ve already got enough issues in this house with lightning bolts and heartfarts.”<br />“What are you telling my children, Killian?”<br />“Just some good advice.”<br />
  20. 20. “Can you hurry and grow up?”<br />“I’m a kid. You’ll just have to wait.”<br />“Can you maybe age a little faster.”<br />“No. Blame the programmers who won’t let me drink elixir.”<br />
  21. 21. “Why are you looking in the paper?”<br />“There’s a job in Athletic.”<br />“But you’ve already lifted your restriction as have I. And Killian is waiting for Paranormal.”<br />“It’s not for me, it’s for Emma.”<br />“But she’s still a teen.”<br />“Not for much longer, if the creator has anything to say about it.”<br />
  22. 22. “Oh, I see that you’re getting bigger.”<br />“Yeah. This bra’s getting really uncomfortable.”<br />“I don’t mind.”<br />
  23. 23. “Killian! Do you think this top is too revealing?”<br />“You don’t expect me to answer that, right?”<br />
  24. 24. “Between you and me, Jumbok, I should have taken the blue pill. Or was it the red one. Never mind. It doesn’t matter. I’ve got more skilling to do.”<br />
  25. 25. “Koriand’r, I admit I find you quite fetching.”<br />“Really? I’m not too fat?”<br />“Um, if you’ll move to one side, I’ll just slip right past.”<br />
  26. 26. “Oh, Elton!”<br />“Things I did not need to see. My granddaughter making out with her husband is at the top of the list.”<br />
  27. 27. “Don’t worry, Greatpa! I’ll give you a hug to make it all better.”<br />“You are irresistible!”<br />“Weren’t you wearing clothes, Elton?”<br />“Um, yes?”<br />“Go put them back on, we don’t need to scar our daughter.”<br />
  28. 28. “Elton. Why did you do that? Kara was in the room”<br />“Yeah, I want to know too.”<br />“Why are you so uptight?”<br />“Please answer me.”<br />
  29. 29. “I just find the thought of you swollen with our child very attractive.”<br />“I—”<br />“It excites me, Kori.”<br />“Oh, creator, why do I not see this as a good thing?”<br />
  30. 30. “Kori, I trust you to have some sense because 2.0 doesn’t.”<br />“What do you mean, grandfather?”<br />“No more babies. Not unless you want someone to die.”<br />“I’ll try to restrain myself. But it’s so hard since it seems that the only way Elton show he cares about me is with his actions and not his words.”<br />“Oh boy. I am not getting in the middle of this one.” <br />
  31. 31. Just like 2.0 said, I did have a plan for Emma. And once she got into the lower green I broke out the elixir.<br />
  32. 32. “What are you trying to do? Kill me?”<br />Not yet.<br />
  33. 33. A vat and a half of Elixir later and Emma aged up into a very inappropriate outfit considering the character she is named after.<br />
  34. 34. However, first things first. I had her snag the opening in Athletics. <br />
  35. 35. Then sent her to the mirror to fix the glitchtastic hairstyle. <br />She didn’t like it much. But it was better than her forehead protruding through. Either that or she is crying about missing college. Not like she ever wanted to go in the first place.<br />
  36. 36. Finally, I put her in the most Emma Frost-esque clothes the lot had. If the leaves were in white, they wouldn’t be too far off. <br />
  37. 37. “Um I hate to bug you, Creator.”<br />
  38. 38. “But the babies are coming!”<br />
  39. 39. A spin and a twirl later and the first of the twins was born…<br />I have no clue which one this is – you’ll see why later.<br />
  40. 40. A quick handoff to Xavier…<br />
  41. 41. And the next twin made itself known.<br />
  42. 42. And here he is… I don’t remember which one.<br />Both babies are boys. Both have blonde hair and dark blue eyes and Skintone four. <br />So I being the messed up person that I am decided to name them J’onn and John.<br />J’onnJ’onzz aka the Martian Manhunter is one of the founding members of the Justice League. John is named for John Stewart, one of the Green Lanterns, and another member of the Justice League. It seemed appropriate. <br />
  43. 43. “I’m going to be dodging bottles for a while aren’t I?”<br />“Quiet, Killian. At least you don’t have to give birth to them.”<br />“Thank the Creator that Music isn’t lifted yet.”<br />
  44. 44. “Look, you’re cute and I’m a romance sim. But I don’t want to hear about how hot my grandpa is.”<br />“But he is cute!”<br />“I can think of something else we can be doing. Rather than scarring my psyche.”<br />
  45. 45. “See? Isn’t this better?”<br />“Uh-huh!”<br />
  46. 46. And in a very bass-ackwards fashion, Emma gets her first kiss after she got her first woohoo.<br />She fits in so well with this challenge. <br />
  47. 47. “Ugh, I feel older.”<br />
  48. 48. “How is a man supposed to sleep when there’s a tattooed man reading out loud?”<br />“I think it’s sweet, Elton. But I’ll ask him to stop.”<br />
  49. 49. “Ahhh what a fine son I have.”<br />
  50. 50. The next day the inevitable happened.<br />“Mommy! Mommy! I got an A+!”<br />“I’m back here, pumpkin.”<br />
  51. 51. “Didja see, Mommy?”<br />“Very good, Kara. Why don’t you go fulfill that want to do your homework?”<br />“Okay!”<br />
  52. 52. Because I know you missed them – a stinky llama head.<br />Sigh – no promotion since Emma still wasn’t fully recovered from her rapid aging but we’ll get it next time.<br />
  53. 53. The next morning Killian took as much of a bath as possible. <br />
  54. 54. Then went out to check the paper like he did every morning. However this morning, Paranormal was finally there. It only took seven days to find it. <br />
  55. 55. And even luckier, he got the job early enough to go to work the same day.<br />
  56. 56. Also that night we had the twins J’onn and John grow up. <br />This is J’onn.<br />
  57. 57. And this is John…<br />
  58. 58. A quick trip to the mirror to check for the ears and something else as well. <br />John here is a Leo with stats of 10/10/3/5/1<br />He’s the evil twin.<br />
  59. 59. And this is J’onn. The good twin.<br />He’s a Pisces with stats of 4/5/7/4/9.<br />Talk about completely different personality.<br />
  60. 60. And other than the ears, hair color, and personality – these two are identical.<br />I foresee cuteness ahead.<br />
  61. 61. And if you had any doubt that John was the evil twin, note his treatment of the poor bunny head.<br />He’s cute, but evil. <br />
  62. 62. After way too long, Emma finally got out of the Llama uniform.<br />
  63. 63. And Killian made to Medium, I think. He didn’t start at the bottom that’s all I can remember at the moment. I blame to stink clouds.<br />
  64. 64. From Medium to Douser.<br />
  65. 65. And since he was home in time to head to work again, I sent him off. <br />
  66. 66. For a different level of cuteness, we have Kara here.<br />
  67. 67. Who aged up into great PJs and is still quite cute. <br />
  68. 68. Despite what her Aunt Emma might think. <br />
  69. 69. A quick sponge bath later, and we see that she is really hoping that Music is lifted soon. Those shorts are not appropriate for eternal winter.<br />
  70. 70. Kara here rolled Knowledge and her lifetime want is to Max 7 skills. Easily one of my favorites for the apocalypse since it is achievable. <br />
  71. 71. “Did you know that there is a penguin in the house?”<br />I have no clue why he is here since we don’t have any snowmen at the moment and no fish. Still he has no manners, do you see that he left the door open?<br />
  72. 72. “Hey old people! I’m gonna go play with the penguin.”<br />
  73. 73. Killian got home with another promotion.<br />
  74. 74. And in an attempt to make it so that he doesn’t have 3 bolts with Koriand’r, I made his turn ons blonde hair and something else and his turn off, red hair. The creepy stalking was getting a bit much.<br />It didn’t work. <br />
  75. 75. “So you’re going to grow up soon, right?”<br />“As soon as the high from growing up well wears off and the creator tries something.”<br />“Well can you hurry? I’m starting to regret turning your Greatpa down.”<br />
  76. 76. “Out! Out! Out!!!!”<br />
  77. 77. “I loves my brother!”<br />
  78. 78. “You’re squeezing too tight!”<br />“Sorry.”<br />
  79. 79. “Congrats on maxing all of your skills! High Five!”<br />
  80. 80. And just in case you wanted proof, I may have missed the doohickey. But he does think about that ^_^<br />
  81. 81. Another day, another promotion. <br />
  82. 82. The thing I wanted to try with Kara was seeing if I could put her in a teen career and then age her rapidly with elixir and then have her get a leg up on lifting things.<br />
  83. 83. I was hoping that she would get Music – what was offered in the paper as an adult job. But instead she found a teen job for journalism. I had her take it.<br />
  84. 84. And since she could go to work and I wanted to see if getting a promotion here mattered. I sent her. <br />
  85. 85. Well, we at least know that he likes the bride we picked out for him. <br />Sometimes ACR, you can be a little creepy. <br />
  86. 86. No promotion, her aspiration wasn’t high enough and since I am waiting for her to be into the low green for aging purposes I set her to work.<br />
  87. 87. She didn’t like it much, but since most of her wants are related to skilling and private school I have to do what I can to make her unhappy.<br />
  88. 88. Now that Killian’spermaplat, it’s simply a matter of going to work to get the promotions we need. <br />This is a good thing. I’m shooting for at least 2 promotions per update.<br />
  89. 89. Starved for Love, Kori sometimes does some very stupid things. Like try to kiss Killian in front of 2.0.<br />“But it was just a family kiss!”<br />“No!”<br />“Koriand’r can I speak to you for a moment?”<br />“Okay.”<br />
  90. 90. …<br />
  91. 91. “I don’t like doing that, Koriand’r. But I demand fidelity.”<br />“I’m sorry, Elton. It won’t happen again.”<br />“Good. I don’t like punishing you. I would much rather be doing other things to you.”<br />---<br />And you wonder why I think my game keeps throwing me plot? I could go into a lot more with this. Kori did go in for an ACR induced peck. Killian did refuse her. Then she and 2.0 went into the bedroom to play Punch You, Punch Me. And ended with a romantic kiss. <br />Isn’t it a good thing that I am not going for plot?<br />
  92. 92. Emma’s slowly but surely climbing the ladder of Athletic. It is another annoying career with lots of random days off.<br />It reminds me of Artist…<br />
  93. 93. “Sleep well J’onny. When you get up I’ll be an adult.”<br />
  94. 94. “Gods this stuff tastes like ass.”<br />
  95. 95. Several swills later and Kara ages up into cute but inappropriate undies.<br />“Like mother, like daughter.”<br />“Hush.”<br />
  96. 96. “Oh my god, Put some clothes on!”<br />“My daughter grew up well, this is good.”<br />“Aren’t you being a little hypocritical, 2.0?”<br />
  97. 97. Since this was the day that Killian was waiting for, I had him go in for the charm.<br />We’ve got a crush on Kara’s end.<br />
  98. 98. But Killian decided to play hard to get.<br />This sim has shot down more romantic interactions than any other I have seen.<br />
  99. 99. Although he has no trouble starting them on his own.<br />
  100. 100. Yay Promotion. You can do it, Emma!!!<br />
  101. 101.
  102. 102. That night, in a grow up spree, John grew up into a cute little boy.<br />
  103. 103. And J’onn soon followed. <br />
  104. 104.
  105. 105. “Kori, I know that the creator is wanting to avoid plot. But I wanted to tell you to stop stalking me. It isn’t fair to Kara.”<br />“But…”<br />“I know that 2.0 doesn’t care for you the way he should, but don’t screw things up for the rest of us. If it is any consolation, he’s on the list of sims who can die next.”<br />“It doesn’t. But thanks.”<br />“No prob. I need to run. Work calls.”<br />
  106. 106. As you can see, Killian is now a police psychic.<br />
  107. 107. Kara aged up to level 6 in Journalism. Definitely a work around and strategy. So if you can, get your kid a teen job, even if they can’t go to school they will age up into a higher career than the one in the paper.<br />Oh and Emma also got promoted.<br />
  108. 108. Kara is now at level 8 in journalism. Only two more promotions to go.<br />
  109. 109. The same with Killian.<br />
  110. 110. “I feel as if my services are needed.”<br />
  111. 111. “Ughhh! Suddenly I don’t feel so good.”<br />---<br />Okay that’s not what happened. The gypsy dropped off a lamp and Elton got food poisoning from eating a bad chef salad. But it was funny, Okay?<br />
  112. 112. “Whew! I love you when you stink!”<br />“Really?”<br />“Yeah really. Wanna go cuddle on the sidewalk?”<br />“Sure!”<br />
  113. 113. “Shouldn’t we put on some clothes? It is still winter you know?”<br />
  114. 114. “Is it? I don’t even feel the cold when I’m with you.”<br />
  115. 115. “Although I do wish you would take a bath.”<br />“Me too!!!”<br />---<br />And you don’t know how happy I was to see the red hearts. Finally some normality in this world.<br />
  116. 116. “Not going to turn me down?”<br />“I wouldn’t dream of it.”<br />
  117. 117. “So you won’t turn me down if I give you this?”<br />“Oh Kara, Of course I won’t!”<br />
  118. 118. “Crap it’s cold.”<br />“I could give you my jacket.”<br />“It would look pretty stupid with my dress.”<br />“The things you do for beauty.”<br />
  119. 119. “And you are beautiful.”<br />“Stop flattering me and say your vows.”<br />“Do I have to?”<br />“No. But we’re getting married anyway.”<br />“No problems with that, KK.”<br />
  120. 120. And we have the obligatory wedding embarrassing thought bubbles for the win.<br />I told you that I couldn’t get rid of Kori’sboltage for Killian. Luckily Killian seems to ignore that and only has eyes for Kara.<br />I don’t think I could deal with much more spousal drama.<br />
  121. 121. And unlike most of the spouses, the baby (which isn’t conceived here (she rolled a 89 when she needed to roll a 66 or less)) also can say that it was legitimate.<br />
  122. 122. Life goes on, like it will. And there are promotions to be had.<br />
  123. 123. And careers to lift. <br />
  124. 124. Punctuated by periods of cuteness.<br />
  125. 125. Make that a double dose.<br />
  126. 126. “Jumbok! Jumbok! Look I got an A+!”<br />“It’s a statue, J’onn, it isn’t going to respond.”<br />
  127. 127. “But Jumbok takes care of me!”<br />“You’ve got a point. Hey, Jumbok, I got an A+ too, you gonna cheer.”<br />“Groan…”<br />“Works for me!”<br />
  128. 128. One more down…<br />
  129. 129. One more to go…<br />
  130. 130. I’m not sure if the tattoos work under the war paint. But it doesn’t matter. Paranormal will be lifted soon.<br />
  131. 131. “Did you hear that, Mom? They’re going to lift paranormal. You know what that means?”<br />“What?”<br />
  132. 132. “I don’t know.”<br />“Shayera!”<br />“What? I’m so hungry that I could kill for a cheese sandwich.”<br />“You are such a popularity sim.”<br />“I resent that, Mom.”<br />
  133. 133. Killian did lift Paranormal that night. Which allows me access to the bone phone, moving graves, and some other stuff.<br />
  134. 134. “But I’m still dead!”<br />I’m sorry, Wally. Soon. I promise. <br />
  135. 135. “Kori, I’m sorry about earlier. I didn’t mean to lose my temper like that.”<br />“What is it?”<br />“A television that we can’t use at the moment.”<br />“Uh. Gee thanks!”<br />
  136. 136. “Kara?”<br />“Yeah, Mom?”<br />“I’m getting old in a few days. And I really would like to reach my Lifetime want.”<br />“It doesn’t involve the number 6 does it?”<br />“No. I want to be a chef. And the job hasn’t come up first in the newspaper.”<br />“I think there’s some left over elixir from when I grew up. Why don’t you use that?”<br />
  137. 137. “Pumpkin, do you think that Elixir is past its expiration date?”<br />
  138. 138. “You look so sparkly!”<br />“Really? It’s not too much?”<br />“I didn’t say that.”<br />---<br />Meta Time!<br />Yes, Koribecame sparklerific after drinking elixir. I did figure out a fix later. It just won’t be in this update. ^_^ Too bad I didn’t attach a downtown to this hood and have Xavier know any vampires. I could have had a Sparkle-Pire!<br />
  139. 139. Emma continues to claw her way up the Athletic career. Bringing home Pigtails fairly often. <br />Remember her. It’ll be important later. <br />
  140. 140. “Look, J’onn. Aunt Emma!”<br />“What?”<br />
  141. 141. “So do you think we’ll be able to get married?”<br />“I don’t know, John. I really want to.”<br />--- <br />Note Killian in the background. He’s gearing up to be the next friend keeper. With 8 sims in the house, it is time for someone to die. But not just yet.<br />
  142. 142. “John? Did you move the pieces?”<br />“Would I do that?”<br />“Yes.”<br />
  143. 143. “Hey, it’s big sis and she’s got a promotion.”<br />“Really?”<br />“Yeah!”<br />
  144. 144. This time John was telling the truth, though. Kara did lift Journalism meaning that we can now search all job regardless of college career. Something really important considering that we are now down to the last seven.<br />
  145. 145. A little before 6pm, I teleported Xavier out to the Death Spot.<br />It was time.<br />
  146. 146. Although my game being what it is, it couldn’t send off my founder without being glitchtastic. <br />
  147. 147. “Xavier Doran!”<br />“Uh, Yeah?”<br />
  148. 148. “I’m here to take you to your final reward.”<br />“I think I”llpass, no really.”<br />
  149. 149. “I’m afraid, I can’t take no for an answer. Here, I’ve had the girls pack your bag.”<br />“They really didn’t need to. I’m fine right here.”<br />
  150. 150. “What if I threw in a tiki drink?”<br />“A drink?”<br />“Yes. It’s fruity.”<br />
  151. 151. “Why didn’t you say that in the first place! Lead the way!”<br />
  152. 152. So it is fitting that Xavier is my first old age death of the apocalypse. His lifespan was 76 days, although that was really extended with Elixir. He left money to thirty-three people including everyone in the house. Just to let you understand just how much his being the friend holder for the family meant. The friend count before his death was 48 friends. After his death, he count was 26 – the family lost 22 friends. <br />The current friend holder is Killian with 15 friends outside the house. <br />
  153. 153. So here is my Death Spot. The graves are in order of Left to Right are:<br />Christy – lifted Nat Sci – died of Starvation<br />Xavier – lifted Artist – died of old age<br />Howard – lifted Show Biz – Died of Starvation<br />Barbara – lifted Adventurer – died of Ghost<br />Wally – lifted Law – Died of Ghost<br />Jean – lifted Law Enforcement – Died of Disease<br />Shayera – lifted Politics – died of Ghost<br />I have the pictures set for the next update (over 180) so I am hoping to get out soonish. <br />
  154. 154. “Wooo Boobies!!!”<br />--<br />Heh. I love playing with angles.<br />Until Next Time – Happy simming!<br />
