Recap: We were introduced to Embla Vidar, the girl who would have been VDS Vidar heiress, except that part of the Vidars was ending at Generation 5. Fortunately for Embla I decided that my DITFT challenge would be the carrying-on of the Vidars, yay! Embla had a cat, Rincewind, modeled after my own cat named Rincewind. There was a long and winding story of WHY Rincewind is called Rincewind, and a picture of said RL cat. Stuff caught on fire. Embla was emo and paranoid about weather. She tried to seduce a teenaged Norwich kid, and I hastily populated the hood with pixel_trade townies. Embla met racing_oatmeal's Amnara, and there was flirtation. All good? Sweet.
This picture pretty much sums up Embla and Amnara's courtship. Flirting and kissing (no woohoo allowed until Embla puts a ring on it! OOOOO WAIT. Have you guys seen the XKCD comic? Just a sec - here. Don't forget to read the alt-text-hover your mouse over the image Go read it. I'll wait for you to read. And to stop laughing so hard that you cry.) Erm. That aside got away from me. Oh yes. This picture is Embla and Amnara's courtship. Flirting and kissing while Embla is improperly dressed, surrounded by poverty and holes in the ground.
AWWWW KISSING. Man, I'm beginning to wonder if it was a BAD idea having a super dark-skinned sim as spouse when Embla can't afford lights. Amnara fades into the background! Or is just a dark splotch! OH WELL. I love Amnara, so all is well.
As soon as Amnara leaves (note the bunch of flowers in the background), it is back to digging - and failing - for Embla. *sigh*
OH WOW. PRESENT! My sims hardly ever get presents from dates! But this is not going to be sold, even if we really need the money. It is going in Embla's inventory for once she has a house. :D
Rincewind: Are you sure she's the dominant species?
Uh, have you ever looked at a cat/human relationship???
OH LOOK, IT IS QUASAR (racing_oatmeal)! Looking very fine in an element-of-winter sort of way!
Wow! We eat tonight! ...dammit, I can't remember where that quote is from.
Embla: I has fishie. :D
Awwww, Embla. *pats* I can't stay irritated at her for long.
Rincewind: She may not be able to fish, but she can clean the litter box!
Which is one of the purposes of humans in relation to cats. XD
She went hiking, came home, swooned from heatstroke, and I just about came unglued. I couldn't wake her up. I tried canceling, getting Rincewind to interact with her, everything! Usually how to fix this is to get another sim on the lot to dump water over them, but there were no other sims. D: D: D:
EIGHT SIM HOURS LATER she wakes up. And I start to calm down.
...bees chase you whenever you hunt for bugs, and you go smack on your bottom every time you try to fish, your plants are unhappy, but you have a silver thumb? Go figure.
That delicious man walking past is slyndsey's Mikey. SO DELICIOUS.
AWWWWW! And see what I mean about pet relationships? Even MAXIS understands, and they're notoriously made of fail. Best friend relationship from the dog's view? THIS IS MY MASTER/MEMBER OF MY PACK. Cat? MUAHAHAH YOU ARE MINE AND NOW I WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD.
...or is it only MY cats that try to take over the world?
Bloody hell, Amnara! This is the third day you haven't been home!
Rincewind scratched the bed/couch instead of his kitty house scratcher thing. -.-
This is Dewey. He belongs to jens_sims and he is ADORABLE.
Guess who finally decided to be home!
YAYYYYYY! Usually I prefer my founder's spouse to bring in less money, to make it harder longer. But it is going to be so hard to get money thing gen, and they really need a house. Embla still has less than $1,000 of her own. XD
Oh, balls, Amnara. You'll have to quit.
*twitch* Six kids in the second gen, with no money. This will be FUN.
Cute little house!
No, not really. But eh, rules.
~twu luv~ amirite? And they have three bolts, btw. So SUPER FAST RELATIONSHIP SCORE YUS.
...I have a fix for this. I KNOW I have a fix for this.
Our guests are Percia (Amnara's sister - racing_oatmeal - and yes, they are linked as sisters) and Mile (keoni_chan).
I. HAVE. AN. EFFING. FIX. FOR. THIS. *rages*
Oh cake! *calms down a bit* Cakeeeeee!
They wasted NO time. XD
Heh. I'll BET they 'raised the roof' after being forced to wait. >.>
LATER THAT EVENINGGGGG...Embla becomes a plant! XD
Hm. Not sure about how I feel about this default.
*points to locked want* *points to gold badge* WTF? Does becoming a plantsim automatically give you gold or something?
I think we can do this! >:D
O_O That is a very pink child. I think I have a weird geneticizing somewhere.
CUTEEEEE. She has black hair, blue eyes, and MASSIVE elf ears. XD
Oh, and her name is Orchid. Since this generation is all about growing things, I decided that the naming theme for the generation will be trees for boys and flowers for girls! Although orchids are really a parasitic vine. *shifty eyes*
I think I'm in love with Orchid. Especially as she's the BRIGHTEST sim I've ever had. SO PINK OMG. O_O
No. It was hard enough getting her to that state.
Rincewind: Damned kids and their damned loud music in the wee hours.
I don't think I've ever seen a tot with this want!
Someone is expecting a child by not-mitosis!
Rincewind: I can kill you with my mind.
No, you can't. You do not have one of the eight spells of the Octavo stuck in your head.
Dammit, you two! While double pregnancies are ADORABLE, keeping two pregnant sims alive at once is a pain. Though with Embla being a plantsim, it shouldn't be too bad.
More details of this very cool plantsim default. XD
First pop of the legacy! Since Orchid sprung forth from Embla in Athena-from-Zeus style. Only there was no hammer involved in the growing of Orchid. And she was wearing a leafy skirt, not full armor.
Shall we end the update with some Orchid-and-Rincewind spam? I think we shall.
