The Minchin Legacy 2.1
Last we left off, Jess had found love with Eli, the OCD plant sim, and was impregnated with his spawn. Which is on the way now.
Eli, despite being a family sim, does not seem happy about this.
Hatred, followed by “she loves me”. Eli, do you know you’re a family sim?
Jess rather likes the baby though, it’s a boy, Veyron, with his mother’s eyes, and a lighter skintone, possibly Eli’s genetics?
We have expanded the house for the baby.
Despite the little pop-up informing me that Jess has three days off to look after Veyron, she went to work. Eli then got a pop-up saying he needed to be at work, so I had to use his one action per life stage to call a nanny. Bastard game.
He fed Veyron.
Then left him surrounded by rotting bottles.
Jess fails at chance cards.
Eli has finally decided to stand still and enjoy the sun lamp. While I enjoy the picture of Michael Wincott he is painting.
Veyron remains where Eli left him.
About nine hours later, Eli moves him to the crib.
… where he stews in his own filth for hours.
Eli, I simply don’t care. I haven’t seen a wilted plant sim before, and I’d quite like to.
That I have seen before.
Jess is a good parent.
I have no idea what Eli is not in the mood for. But he’s doubly unhappy about it.
Eli looks delighted that he’s due in work shortly.
I’ve noticed that the first action of a nanny never corresponds with the rest of their behaviour. See, she’s changing the nappy, but that means nothing. She’s a nanny. It will not end well.
Jess gets promoted, and Eli gets a job offer from the guy he brought home with him. I have to accept, yes?
Eli pretends he’s a nanny.
Except the reason for his terrible parenting was a booty call from Jess.
I missed when the actual passing out happened, but Eli conked out from sun depravation again.
Jess has been checking the computer daily checking for jobs (she has to use the computer from Mr Humble, because I downloaded a default replacement newspaper, which has fucked my game, even after I’ve removed it – my sims and pets are unable to search for jobs). Anyway, Jess has finally found a job in the dance career. We’re on our way to filling a LTW.
I think Eli is the worst family sim I’ve ever seen.
His first act as a toddler is to drink from a filthy bottle, then vomit it back up.
Then drink from it again…
… and vomit again.
Then he heads off to play in the toilet, while his parent get up to what my friend calls “rudies”.
Some people are never happy.
Nanny: OMG! Why won’t this bitch move? I want to sit down and watch telly. I’m sure Veyron’s fine without me.
You’re right, he is.
This is either fitness or another pop.
Jess sits down and teaches Veyron to speak.
Only to be rudely interrupted by labour.
Veyron looks delighted. I hit “random” on the Twins, Triplets & Quads hack, and look… triplets. *sigh*. I guess this is the payoff for the luckiness of Veyron being a random single birth.
And in case you hadn’t noticed, the names are car makes/models, starting at the far end of the alphabet and working backwards, just to ensure the Bugatti Veyron got a mention in this legacy. Even though I don’t drive, that’s my dream car.
Is anyone else unnerved that Jess is thinking of her children while using a blender?
Chance card… *fingers crossed*
Oh, this is the first time the Nanny does this, but not the last. Not by far.
Birthday time! As always, I do this alphabetically, because I can’t tell babies apart. Even real ones. Much less Sim ones. This is Vanquish.
Violet. (Please note the green stink cloud in the far right)
Then Jess had to go to work, and there was a strange moment in the game, where everyone was gathered around the cake, waiting for Viper to age, while she slumbered on peacefully. Nobody would do anything else. I figured it wasn’t cheating to close the “Watch Birthday” icon in everyone’s action queue.
Hey, Vanquish, nice place to pass out. I like that your hair defies gravity.
Eli wakes Viper up, and takes her to the cake, and “Watch Birthday” appears in Jess’ action queue. Everyone freezes again. I repeat the above process.
Vanquish wakes up to tell everyone he’s tired.
Vanquish: Dad! I’m tired! Want bed!
Eli: I’m sorry, I have no idea what you want.
Veyron, Violet and Viper: Kill the noisy one.
Viper finally ages into epic cuteness. I don’t seem to have toddler pics of the others yet. I’ll point them out as we come to them.
Oh, the love in this picture.
Violet is made of sunshine, marshmallow fluff, angel’s love, and smiles.
Viper, not so much.
Given that Violet is an angel, she’s too good for this legacy, and determined to escape.
See above description. Angel.
See above description. Not an angel.
This was Veyron and Viper’s first interaction. Clearly Veyron’s cute-factor cancels out Viper’s evil.
Jess got a promotion, but still desperately tries to placate four mad children whose needs she does not understand.
I appear to have missed Veyron’s birthday, but hey, who hasn’t seen a birthday shot before.
He’s irritatingly speedy. Runs around everywhere. Also, that’s the Nanny’s pee he’s splashing in.
Jess: Well done for growing up well! I’m proud of you, son.
Veyron: Fuck you, and the horse you rode in on, mother.
Nanny pees herself (#3).
And again (#4) same room, different location.
I swear to god, all Minchin children stink of Nanny wee.
Luckily, getting peed on is not a fear, otherwise these kids would be fucked.
Yes, that’s exactly what the tired child needs. A bottle.
Veyron is brilliant. He bathes every two seconds, and when he’s not bathing, he’s tidying up or sensibly sleeping in the bed I bought him. It’s a bit boring, if I’m honest.
Another chance card.
Another win. And Jess got a promotion out of it.
That’s an… interesting place to sleep, Violet.
Eli, it appears, has just become BFFs with his son, despite having almost no interaction with him. How?
Veyron is showing a bit of nastiness (I blame that hug with Viper). Vanquish was playing with the teddy, and Veyron took it off him.
All three toddlers are desperate for a wash.
Sunshine girl finds it funny though.
I’m sure Vanquish really appreciates you two dancing on his head.
And that seems like a sensible place to leave it.
It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact I hit exit by mistake.
