Over to the Curious brothers!
Well. Two of them, at least. Pascal had to move out at the end of the last round after Vidcund got knocked up by aliens again.
Vidcund: They did what now!?
Lazlo: How is this still a surprise to you?
Anyway, thanks to some mod reset in the past eight years, they’re all wide awake at 2am, so I let Lazlo do some skilling.
While Vidcund simply stargazes.
Vidcund: I think I’m done with aliens for now.
And then the nanny walked out halfway through her shift and I didn’t notice until this bitch showed up.
Social Worker: Excuse me, no need for that language, I’m just doing my job, it’s not my fault somebody left a child unattended.
It’s not my fault either! It’s not their fault! I know she showed up, Lazlo refused to leave for work until she did!
Which is why I quit without saving.
Vidcund: My baby got taken away, cry cry cry.
You don’t remember that.
Vidcund: THEN WHY AM I SO MISERABLE?
BECAUSE ALL YOUR WANTS ARE STUPID.
Why can’t you be like Lazlo and just play on the murderbike all night long?
Lazlo: Excuse me the what now?
You’ll be fine! I probably have a mod in, nobody’s died yet!
Lazlo: I got promoted!
Vidcund: I got pollinated!
He wants to max out Logic, so I make him skill in the hope it’ll help his awful aspiration score.
Stray: *soulful backup vocals*
Oh, and here’s Albert! Hi Albert!
Albert: I’M SO BORED!
Wow, that’s too bad. If only there was a giant flat screen TV somewhere in this house.
Albert: No need to be sarcastic.
Nanny: Um, I’m cooking?
Vidcund: This is just a backup. Y’know, in case you walk out halfway through the job again.
Watching the boys dick around the house gets old though, so I send Vidcund out to the pool while he was still allowed.
Vidcund: So you’re like, really a witch?
Jade: Do these sparkles look like cosplay to you?
Vidcund: Tell me EVERYTHING.
Vidcund: I think she put a curse on my morphs.
I missed Pascal, so I invited him and Isaac over.
And Albert invited Vera Goth over.
And then just to make things more social, Lazlo brought Mary-Sue home from work.
Mary-Sue: The ghosts at your house were always so scary!
Vera: Oh, there’s no ghosts at our house.
Vera: Wait, you mean grandpa’s house! We moved out of there when I was a baby!
Mary-Sue: Oh, OK, that’s cool. I didn’t know that your mom, my best friend in the entire world, had moved. This is fine.
Vidcund: Wait, I was just stargazing!
Vidcund: I don’t even want to meet aliens!
Welcome home! How was it?
Vidcund: I’d forgotten how much fun I have being probed.
Vidcund: WHY DO I HAVE TO FIX THIS!?
Because you kicked out the repairman because you were desperate for a wee.
Lazlo: GOT MONEY!
Albert: Dad! I got an A+!
Vidcund: NOW IS NOT THE BEST TIME!
Except not really, because I took one look at that female baby full of Vidcund’s genetics, looked at the family tree with no other parent and diagnosed unlinked clone!baby. So, once again, it’s a quit without saving sort of day.
Lazlo: I am so done with this.
Well that’s too bad because you’re going to have to do it all over again.
Right, just checking, and there’s definitely a pollination tech gene donor this time!
Lazlo: Do you have to do that right in the middle of our tiny hallway?
It’s a boy! His name is Charles! He definitely has alien DNA!
He also still only has Vidcund on the family tree, but that’s a problem future Sushi can deal with.
Albert: Congratulations on the baby!
Vidcund: Congratulations on the A+!
Albert: Hi Charles! I’m your big brother!
Charles: And you suck.
Baby goes on floor
Lazlo: And that’s why the Nobel gases are stable.
Albert: Uncle Lazlo, this is English homework.
Albert wanted a kitten, so I indulged. Their name is Mochi!
Lazlo: And I could just gobble you all up!
Vidcund: Wow, that thing honks!
You could change it?
I KNOW! Ugh, stop doing that, it lags the whole game!
Charles: Could this be... a competent adult?
I wouldn’t bet on it.
Sent Lazlo out to the pool. Don’t know why I bothered screenshotting it, except to let you know he left the house.
Whu- why are there two of you?
Nanny: Your complaints have been noted and your nanny has been assigned a backup nanny.
So that’s like, ten bucks each.
Today I learned the water sprinklers can break.
Lazlo: Who the hell are you?
Townie: Undercover Nanny observer.
Lazlo: That’s not a real thing.
Townie: You got me. I’m just here to watch the game.
Charles didn’t actually need a bath, but the bathe-baby-in-sink interaction is so cute, I just told Lazlo to do it anyway.
Lazlo: Baby goes on floor.
Charles: Fine, but I’m gonna block all the exits.
Albert: I love teddy.
Albert: CHANGED MY FUCKING MIND.
Albert: *chef’s kiss*
Lazlo grew like, 150 fucking tomatoes so now he has a Bloody Mary for breakfast every day.
Vidcund: What do I do with this? Is there a manual?
Yes, but you haven’t rolled a want to read it.
The Curious brothers strike me as the kind of people who would have all the fail-safes installed so their science projects don’t lose power, so I made Vidcund do that.
Oh, thanks Jenny! Didn’t even realise we had roaches!
Albert and Isaac catch up.
But here’s the real reason I invited everyone over - it’s Charles’ birthday!
Vidcund: Tickle tickle!
What a dapper little guy.
Charles: Gotta poop.
Jenny: You can’t do that literally anywhere else?
Vidcund: It’s our house.
Potty training face!
Albert: Uncle Lazlo caught flu? That’s awesome! +5000
Don’t give me that face, Mochi, you initiated this.
Lazlo: So, I’m healthy. What do you want me to do with this Comfort Soup?
Eh, save it. You’ll probably need it.
Yes, I will screencap this interaction every time it occurs and force you to view it.
It’s not my fault nothing interesting ever happens on this community lot.
Well, OK, Beau Broke was there, but that’s it.
Lazlo: Why do I have to do this?
Charles is awake. So are you.
Got bored of visiting Strangetown’s two community lots, so I sent Vidcund and Albert on a family day out to Magic Land.
You were in there for ten seconds, you weenie.
Albert does a lot better on the log roller.
Vidcund: I think I’ll put some ABBA on.
Excellent idea, you do that.
Oh look, It’s Sahira Patel, one of the very few Sims who won’t require a complete clothing overhaul when I reach her lot.
Albert: I want one of these.
Vidcund: Hello! Are we related?
Stella: No, I don’t think so.
Vidcund: Would you like to be?
Vidcund: Ugliest woman I’ve ever seen.
Aww, it’s not her fault, she got a bad makeover.
Vidcund: Happy birthday to Charles, happy birthday to Charles~
PT9: Johnny! In public!?
Jill: OMG Johnny noooooo!
One of these Sims is not like the others.
I do love a big family gathering.
Not my own, but you get the point.
Albert: I wish to become even more cool than I already am.
More potty training faces.
Vidcund: Here, have some stuff to jazz up your teeny apartment.
Meanwhile, Lazlo brought Bianca Monty home from work.
Bianca: I could really go for a giant sack of cash right about now.
...Well it’s better than the teenagers you were all lusting over last round, but she’s engaged, pregnant and living in Veronaville, which is not a great combo.
Townie: Judging you.
OH FUCKS SAKE.
Vidcund: Lovely view of the radio telescopes tonight.
Lazlo: What!? I was about to have a nice, cosy bubble bath!
Once again Mochi, you initiated this.
Lazlo: Say ‘milk’!
Charles: I would literally rather die.
