Last time, Peanut Brittle went to Egypt and got his Visa level to 3 and bought a new vacation home. Glacier and Wasabi became adorable toddlers, Vanilla decided to move out, Oleander aged up to child, Spearmint and Cinnaburst were born, and then Wasabi and Glacier aged up to child. After all that, we said our farewells to Ingot and then PB escaped to France.
We are in the same tomb that we left off with (I think) and this is what we were greeted with.
PB: I want my damned axe.
PB piddled around for a bit and earned his first Visa level after returning the baseball.
Not much going on at the adventure board.
PB: They really need to put in a dance club in this town.
Maybe I will let you have some free time when you get home.
I’m all adventured out people. PB had to convince three sims to visit some store. The first lady also taught PB the songs of China before he went on to find others to convince since she was a foreigner and could not be convinced. The men all lusted after PB for some reason, but it was really easy to convince them after a charming intro.
Peanut Brittle then had to catch a frog. So he fished while listening to a fishing tabcast. He got it really quickly and the man he turned it into was weirdo.
It was then time for Nectar Making for N00bs. PB blew through the first two objectives and got his second Visa level.
PB even had a good shot with making the Nice nectar too.
He hunted around the nectary for treasures and booze.
PB: I’ll just start my own party!
Then he realized that boozing it up just wasn’t meant to be.
PB opens up the last obtainable treasure without that key and heads to check on his nectar, which was Nice.
PB: Are you serious? My feet are stained from the last five batches I made!
PB spent the last three days of his vacation trying like mad to make a Very Nice batch of nectar while all the French people screwed like bunnies.
With one hour to spare, PB threw a fit and said he was done.
Back home, Oleander was at someone’s house for whatever reason. He was in a loop of standing in this pose and then crying for that stray cat.
Not to be left out, Wasabi was stuck in front of his painting crying for 20 million years.
PB is trying to navigate around Apple Pie to put toddlers to bed when we saw a kitty go splat.
Kids are tucked in without a fail for once.
Glacier and Sapphire are just hanging out in the bathroom. I swear they stood here for three hours. Sadly, Sapphire’s life bar is maxed. I am not sure how much longer she will be here.
Well you get over it and go home! It’s after 10 p.m.
Ollie: I no longer want a bedtime story, lady. My dad is calling me home.
Lady: Good. Get out, it’s after 2 a.m.
Sadly, I just couldn’t get into the play, so I quit right here and went back to Sims 2. Then I couldn’t get into that either. I found a $50 Target gift card on my desk (LMAO!) and bought Get to Work. I spent a fucking day updating mods (I haven’t played since November) and then I spent the next day trying to find a conflict. The day after that? Another fucking patch. I am not updating mods again. Screw you, EA. Anyway, the pics were done in April, so I am not too far behind.
Anyway, if I ever do go back to Sims 4, this is the girl I made. The second girl was actually the one I made first, but for some reason I went to start my game and she disappeared. I quit the game in a rage and then went back and made the blonde. (Sorry, I am trying to locate the Tart screenshots and came across these two).
Ugh. 102 pics left for the Tart’s and I found 40 shots for Candy Cane. I really just can’t get into anything apparently.
I am unsure what is going on (surprise, surprise), but I think I reset the town and then cleared out inventories (which is why you see graves for the first time in years). Lag from the adventuring was actually going on so I moved them to a new town.
Jade: It’s so hot. I wish I had a blow dryer.
PB found out that the boys had not learned all of their skills and taught what’s his face to talk while Sapphire randomly decided that what’s his other face needed to learn to walk.
As if there isn’t enough chaos, I had the wonderful idea of letting these two have more kittehs! Starburst looks particularly satisfied.
Starburst: *eyebrow waggle* Merooowowow!
No, please do not give my a play by play of the episode.
Jade: Will you please put
(insert kids name here) Spearmint down, I want to tickle him.
PB: Please put (IKNH) Spearmint down, he’s ready for bed.
Sapphire: I think I will hold him all day. Buh bye.
*I wish the game would actually load so I could figure out what these kids’ names are* Of course the game immediately loads after that statement.
Glacier: I think we should have hotdogs for dinner.
Wasabi: I really think we need makeovers. I can’t live in pink shoes and you look just stupid with shorts and boots.
Oleander: Or you guys could do your homework like me.
Nappy: Ten-HUT! (of course he probably said it in French, or with a very heavy French accent)
Confuscious: *gets ready to karate kick Glacier*
PB: I’m really glad we get to finally go on a honeymoon.
Apple: You really are short.
PB: I am not! We’re on a slope.
Apple: No, I’m pretty sure you are just short.
PB: Can we get back to our honeymoon and leave my height out of it?
Yep, we are back in France. Due to the move to a new town, PB lost his last part of his adventure. Luckily it was the first thing that popped up.
Apple: Thanks for filling my want to go to the nectary. Can we hit up the museum now?
PB: Sure, I think we can squeeze that in.
PB: Well, here it is. Gotta go. Have fun!
Apple: You are not leaving me along one our honeymoon, Mr. Tart!
PB: I am so glad I remembered my axe this time!
Me too since there is no other way into Tuatha’s Garden and we need those grapes!
PB: Honey, you didn’t have to follow me. You should have enjoyed the museum some more.
Apple: We are in a group situation, Peanut. I could not ignore the Follow the Leader coding.
Peanut Brittle hung around topside collecting bugs and wild flowers while Apple plays her guitar for the first time ever.
PB: As much as I love listening to you butcher the acoustic version of Stairway to Heaven, I think you need to take a break. I called up the base camp and they put up some stuff for you to do on your own.
Apple: Are you trying to get rid of me?
PB: Yes. There are dangerous traps down there and I don’t want you following and getting hurt. I should be back in a day or two, I promise.
I probably should have been bringing Apple along for every trip! She got to level 4 guitar and painting during this trip.
PB did complete the very long and confusing Tuatha’s Garden. I could have sworn I took pics, but I think I was more worried about Apple starving or pissing herself (she didn’t do either).
PB: So, I made the booze you wanted. It’s a wonderful blend of this and that.
Yay! Positive points for once! +40
Peanut Brittle arrived back at Base Camp with only one thing on his mind.
His wife. The poor darlings both had a wish to kiss each other.
PB: I missed you so much!
Apple: Please tell me that you’re done.
PB: I am completely done with adventuring forever and I have a surprise for you.
Apple: What a wonderful little house!
After Apple went to sleep, PB snuck off to check the adventure board and was quite happy to see the thing was silent. He went back to the house and went to sleep.
The couple enjoyed days and days of nothing but sex and I’m sure they did other stuff. Apple was quite excited to be learn the local songs.
PB ran off one morning and found two ladies. One was from Egypt and the other was from French local. He learned all the songs and made sure that Apple learned them too.
PB: I am really going to miss going on epic adventures.
Apple: I’m going to miss not being able to paint and drink nectar for weeks on end.
Apple: But I think I will miss the silence most of all.
PB: Me too.
Apple: When can we go on our next vacation:
PB: I thought you were happy that I was done?
Apple: I am, but I think we should take trip every year. Just you and me.
PB: I think we can do that.
Apple: Great. Now just get the kids aged up so we can feed Spearmint. His screams are driving me nuts.
Finally, no more toddlers! There is still one more birthday, but I wanted to point out that Spearmint is the one in the blue shirt and Cinnaburst is wearing green (that is Glacier who is also wearing a blue shirt though).
Oleander is a teen! Yay! But, boo for never nude. Ick.
Oleander: My first order of business as a teen is to stand here in the archway and cause my little brother to get confused and piss himself.
Cinnaburst: Make way, I must put my cake down right now!
The reason for the mad dash to put down his cake becomes clear.
Cinnaburst: No, I’m pretty sure it’s yellow.
It’s going to be one of those nights, isn’t it.
The sound of more fails in progress draw me outside.
I am not counting Apple. Her and everyone else that already peed themselves are on a glitched loop. I am counting the first one they did though. Spearmint, Cinnaburst and Oleander have all peed three more times that I am not counting.
PB somehow got everyone (except cats) into the motive mobile and ran to the local beach.
Oleander got his makeover.
We got lucky that Wasabi has green hair and Glacier doesn’t. They both have hot pink as a favorite color. All four kids run off to school. Jade, PB and Sapphire run off to work.
Apple hung out for a little while, but even she made it home before noon.
Meanwhile, Oleander was still at the beach making smustling look painful. He was there all freaking day. He apparently had his birthday after midnight, so he was not ditching school.
I know for a fact that it is not your birthday. What on earth are you doing?
Apple: Putting the cake away so that we can all eat for the foreseeable future.
Ohh, now I just need to remember to remove the food from her inventory before it spoils.
Apple: Aren’t I wonderful?
Yes, but don’t stop now!
Jade: Someone is cleaning? How wonderful!
Apple: Just remember this moment for a few hours.
Nappy and Confuscious have been stuck there for a while.
Nappy: I’m not Napolean. He’s upstairs sniffing the catfood.
Whoops. Very sorry, Voltaire.
No Sapphy! Don’t you dare!
Sapphire: It’s okay, I’m ready.
Dammit! I forgot Wasabi had a clickable opportunity to turn in permission slips.
Sapphire was not alone when she passed after work that day. Her partner was on hand to sob uncontrollably along with Wasabi.
Peanut Brittle was a little bit late, but he was able to pick up her grave.
Grim: I haven’t had thus much fun in forever!
Grim: No, please don’t smile! I prefer to capture your pain and heartbrokeness for my future enjoyment.
Oleander: I sense that something bad has happened.
Yes, now go home.
Really? Were you two even friends?
Apple: That’s not the point. I’m just very emotional right now.
I hope you are going home soon.
Oleander: Shh. I’m talking to my mom.
She actually remembered that you were alive?
Starburst: Do we really need more ghosts on this lot?
I know right!
Jade was invited to a party, so I said yes. I then had to have PB hunt her down to hit her with the moodlet manager.
Oleander: *sobs* Grandma!
Wasabi: I’m just going to sit here until it doesn’t hurt anymore.
Glacier is the only one who goes home and does homework surrounded by the gnomes.
Bartender: ID, please.
Oleander: I left it in my other pockets. Just give me a drink, Toots.
Bartender: How about you go home before I call your parents?
Meanwhile, back home…
Apple: My little French souvenir.
My little foot is kicking your virtual pixel ass.
Apple: Remember how I cleaned that one time the other day? You are not allowed to get mad at me. I earned this chance for a girl.
I am not going to survive all of this crying. Seriously.
We gathered up the completed collections and sold off all of the rest. They did keep all of the nectar they found and also the leftover keystones.
PB: My house is awesome.
PB: Alert. My wife is pregnant.
Yes, that’s old news now.
PB: I want a boy, a girl and a baby.
PB: Hey! There’s no need to be rude! I have wants and you have to fill them.
Grr. No more boys. I refuse to even lock in that want.
Stop crying and just go to school. Ugh.
I thought I told you to cancel the paper?
PB: You failed, dumbass.
Oops. -5 to me since I clicked on the wrong thing.
Oleander did eventually come home the previous night and was even on time to school. He came home and did his homework immediately.
Peanut Butter: Attention: Kittehs incoming!
Of course we get two unnamed females. They are identical except for the second one being fluffier and smiles. I think we will keep her.
This seems to be a good stopping point.
