A Novel Idea Ch. 2.4


Photobucket

Warning: 56 images under cut.



Last update: The kids got all interesting and started a bake-off with their Easy Bake Oven. Jane reached her LTW and then had "take over the world" as her newest one, so of course I can't deny her wishes. Juan continues to climb the undersea ladder of success, and Trista took over gardening duties from Author.

Photobucket

Liant comes home with straight A's now. She would have sooner, but playing tag with Grandma a few nights in a row was much more important than doing homework.

Photobucket

Beru: Look at me! My skirt defies gravity!
Cute Kid Beru Brought Home: *cheers*

It's good to see that Beru has come out of her shell when it comes to picture taking.

Photobucket

And his name is Jessie, not Cute Kid Beru Brought Home. I've decided to age him up with the quads, just to see what he'll look like as a teen.

Photobucket

Both of them classic danced in the front yard for a couple of sim hours.

Beru: I like him. Can I keep him?
Me: We'll see.

Photobucket

He likes to give hugs. Cute future couple?

Beru: I'm really serious about keeping him. He can live in our greenhouse.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Me: Guys? You two okay?
Author: Weight training builds bone density.
Trista: I've got one more day on the job. I want to hang up the supervillain costume looking my best.

Photobucket

Jane: I got a promotion!
Me: You know what that means.
Jane: MUAHAHAHAHA! *rubs hands together*

Actually I was talking more on the lines of getting another LTW crossed off the list, but world domination works as well. You start tomorrow, babe.

Photobucket

Spandex is unforgiving, Jane. Remember: pain is weakness leaving the body.

Photobucket

Jane: *hulks out*
Ball of Stink: *hovers in the background*

After a quick shower, Jane was ready to go to work.

Photobucket

Jane: This is the best day of my life!
Me: Even better than your wedding day or the birth of your kids?
Jane: Better than those, plus Christmas and my own birthdays!

Photobucket

Me: Any thoughts on your last day of work, Trista?
Trista: No, not really. Actually, I'm just going in to show Jane around the secret lair, introduce her to all the other supervillains of the Simverse, that sort of thing. I'm really looking forward to retiring.

Photobucket

What's that you spy, Author honey?

Photobucket

A three generation smustle party, you say?

Photobucket

Without Author to lead them, the kids get a little uncoordinated.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Jane and Trista come back from work, and the first thing Trista does is hang up the outfit for good.

Photobucket

Fail!Muffin: 3
Gen. 3: 3

Photobucket

Yay Jane!

Photobucket

This family is made of all sorts of win. *loves*

Photobucket

Tin: Run, Grandpa's in his underwear!
Smaug: Aaaah!

Actually, they were upset because Author and Juan were arguing about the finer points of wearing hats.

Photobucket

Liant: I don't even get why people argue about hats. I mean, there are better things to fight about, like shoes!

Photobucket

Juan: How was your day, Honey?
Jane: #$*%ing superheroes. *grumbles*

Photobucket

Juan: Well, I know what can cheer you up! *insert pearl necklace joke of choice here*
Jane: No way. I have no idea how well spandex cleans up.

Photobucket

Juan: Well in that case, why don't we find out how fast spandex comes off?

Photobucket

This, she'll let him do.

Photobucket

Me: Why the wibbly face?
Juan: Well, now that my wife rules the world, I wonder if I'm good enough for her. I mean, there are more evil guys out there that she's talking to now and...

Photobucket

Me: By her expression, I don't think you have anything to worry about, big guy. Besides, no one's nose will ever compare to yours.

Photobucket

Final score:

Fail!Muffin: 3
Gen. 3: 4

Easy Bake Oven: CURSES!

Photobucket

Everyone decided to grow up in the greenhouse. It's a rather popular destination; everyone wants to play catch or tag in there as well.

Photobucket

Poor Jessie. He's the only one of them that didn't have a good transistion. I didn't like their clothes, so I sent the four of them off in the Evilmobile to get new wardrobes.

Photobucket

The Quads: Auntie Lizzie! *hugs*
Lizzie: Do I know you?

Um, so Jane hasn't really invited her other siblings over to meet her kids, but Author and Trista talk about them to the quads all the time.

Photobucket

And we have an evil witch sighting! Beru, you're closest, go chat her up so we can keep her in our contacts!

Beru: I'm on it!

This also reminds me that I've got to find a default skin replacement for evil witches somewhere. The green body paint isn't cutting it. After talking to all four of the teens, Evil!Witch high tailed it out of there on her broom. Now for the makeovers and stats:

Photobucket

Beruthiel Novel
Romance/Fortune
Scorpio
8/5/8/3/1
LTW: Become a rock god

I wound up giving Beru a more rockish makeover, which should probably give Trista fits, seeing that she doesn't like custom hair. She loves fit redheads, but would rather them go commando than wear underwear.

Photobucket

Smaug Novel
Romance/Knowledge
Cancer
7/3/6/2/7
LTW: Become a Celebrity Chef

Smaug adores witches with red hair, but is completely turned off by dark hair. At least we don't have to worry about any complexes with this one!

Photobucket

Tindomul Novel
Family/Grilled Cheese
Scorpio
7/5/8/3/2
LTW: Eat 200 grilled cheese sandwiches

Tin favors his grandpa's love of blondes and brunettes, and his father's general dislike of hats.

Photobucket

Ungoliant Novel
Pleasure/Family
Aries
6/6/6/3/4
LTW: Become a game designer

Scruffy underwear models make Liant go weak in the knees, but she's going to ignore the older ones, or men that happen to go gray prematurely.

Photobucket

When they get back, look who decided to walk by! It's teen!Jessie!

Beru: Do you like my hair?
Jessie: It's very...purple.

Photobucket

Jessie: But woah! You have boobs!

Photobucket

Not only does she have boobs, but she also has a crush on you.

Jessie: The feeling is mutual!

Photobucket

Aww, they're cute.

Photobucket

And so is he. ♥

Photobucket

But this isn't. Liant! You have your own bed! Your parents recently woo hoo'ed where you're now sleeping!

Photobucket

And a shot of the family while Liant lets what I told her sink in. The last thing she did was shoot out of the bed and head straight for the shower.

Photobucket

LTW reached! That's four sims on the lot who have permanent platinum ratings.

Photobucket

Juan: nrgh...treadmill...can't stop running....

It haunts his dreams, that treadmill does. Maybe he's dreaming that he's a hamster or something.

Photobucket

Me: Smaug, sweetie, how come you're still up?
Smaug: I like to get all my studying done at night.
Me: But it's 3:30 in the morning.
Smaug: I like to study early in the morning too.

Photobucket

All the studying made him hungry. Hey Smaug, whatcha cooking?

Smaug: Wild mushroom and shallot omelettes with a bit of gruyere for a nutty background taste.

Did I mention that Smaug's favorite hobby is cuisine?

Photobucket

Smaug: Not the gruyere! *waves smoke away*

Well, at least you didn't start a fire. Three generations and we've been blaze-free in the kitchen. Let's hope I didn't just jinx myself.

Photobucket

At least he cleans up afterwards.

Photobucket

Me: What's wrong, bb?
Liant: I can't take the pressure anymore! Dad and Grandpa want me to be an overachiever; I'm juggling a job and homework at the same time while trying not to fall asleep in class, and I haven't gotten asked out on a date at all! *wails*

If you calm down, we can fix the date thing for you.

Photobucket

Matchmaker: *sneaks* No one expects the ninja matchmaker!
Liant: Hello? Are you the matchmaker I called for?
Matchmaker: Damn!

Photobucket

Liant: Oooh, are you consulting the Powers That Be in regards to my (highly expensive) date request? Are you connecting through the ether, to the cosmic connection that my soul mate and I share?
Matchmaker: No. I have a splitting migraine and you're making it worse. Here's the date you wanted kid, I'm going to go home and lie down in a dark room with a cold towel over my eyes.

Photobucket

She gave her Puck Summerdream, and the two of them had an okay time, but it wasn't anything first kiss-inspiring. Honestly, I think Liant was sort of glad when the date was over.

Photobucket

Puck seemed to think otherwise, sneaking back around to leave a flower vase at Liant's front door.

Photobucket

Several days later, this happens as soon as the quads come home from their respective jobs. Guess which two take after their grandma.

Between school and job promotions, nothing very interesting happened to the four. I sent them and Jessie off to college, where they're waiting in the student bin while I try to figure out how to build them a dorm room. My construction know-how isn't of the best, so hopefully they won't be waiting there for very long.

Next update: Just what are the spares of Generation Two doing nowadays?

Yay, thanks! I knew there was a cheat somewhere, but I couldn't quite remember how it was worded.

Both of them are so darn cute. Tin did wind up getting Juan's nose, though all four of them take after Trista the most.

Tin is really winning me over right now too. *squeezes*

I can't wait to read more. Are you planning on sending them to Uni?

Yep! I'm planning on doing at least one Spares update for each past generation before sending the current generation to college. I figure that having them away from home and distractions (read: Author hogging all the screenshots because I love him) will give me a better idea of who I want to have as heir.

That actually sounds like a good idea. I'm going to have a hard time with my legacy's Gen 2 kids because I love the first Gen so much. But I hate Uni...with a passion >_

I love these updates. It makes the fact I can't play the Sims on my laptop a little be easier; I feel like I can live vicariously through you. I think Liant is my favorite so far, but I'm sure I'll be happy with whatever heir you pick though. I didn't think I'd like Jane, but no, I love her. Haha.
