Previously: The routing of a new house was annoying for everyone, so they moved yet again. Apple and Oleander got into a huge fight in front of City Hall. They had a total of six birthdays (1 adult, 2 to teen, 2 child and, 1 kitten).
Warning: This is one of the longest chapters I have had in over a year with 100+ pictures.
Kitty Check (oldest to youngest):
Starburst is peeking in the window to an empty room, the one with the chess set.
Peanut Butter is right where we left off last time, playing in the tub.
The amazing multicolored Lifesaver is out by the pool having a scratch.
Sim Check (oldest to youngest):
The oldest sim in the house right now is Apple, mother to Wasabi, Spearmint, Cinnaburst, Beignet and Mooncake. She decided to have cake in a random room. That chair was also pranked by Cinnaburst last chapter, so Apple is super embarrassed right now.
Jade, the mother of PB and grandmother to all the kids, seems happy to be out at the pool after her recently redone makeup.
PB, our current TH and only controllable, is relaxing on the bed. Alone. For no reason.
Next up is Oleander, the oldest child of PB and Cassia Morning. He’s doing nothing.
Wasabi was caught cleaning up!
Glacier, the only child of Vanilla Dust and PB, is grounded for breaking curfew and is probably going to be our first fail.
Spearmint was just standing by the pool, thinking of how tired he was and how dirty the dishes were. Then I realized autonomy was off. Oops! It’s back on now.
Cinnaburst is pretty dang happy about is successful prank. He is standing near Oleander doing nothing in the kitchen.
Mooncake is standing next Glacier, waiting for him to pass out.
The baby of the family is Beignet. She is currently just standing around in the kitchen with everyone else.
/end sim check
Oh wait! Confuscious, Voltaire and Nappy are hanging out in the dining room.
Now end sim check. Of note: Starburst’s age bar is maxed
Jade was getting marked by Peanut Butter and it was cute. Hard to believe, but Jade is a closet cat person.
I am filling all of Starburst’s wishes. He has wanted to sniff both Beignet and Mooncake and now wants to pounce on Peanut Butter and Lifesaver.
Kitty spam! I was not prepared for Peanut Butter’s elder birthday, but everyone else seemed to be.
I had thought Mooncake was doing something interesting, like cleaning, in the previous picture. She wasn’t. She was just going to eat.
I later found her just sitting on her bed, tired. I checked, but everyone in the house was asleep, including the cats. So, I just sat. Watching her.
She sat on her bed for half the night, then decided to go swimming.
Go to bed!
Mooncake: Nah, it’s swim time!
No, no, no! Get. Out. Of. The. Pool.
Mooncake: Swimming in the middle of the night, alone, is really, really fun!
No it’s not.
Mooncake: I’m getting a bit tired. What should I do?
You could GET OUT OF THE FUCKING POOL! I swear if you drown, I will resurrect you just to kill you.
Mooncake: Man, my arms and legs really hurt. I wonder if I should get out now.
Mooncake: So. Tired. -5
I’ll take the fail! Happily. As long as it means you live.
Mooncake: Can I have a bedtime story, Grandma:
Jade: Sorry, Moonie, I have to go to work.
Mooncake: Can I have a bedtime story, Wasabi?
Wasabi: Sorry, Moonie, I have to get ready for school.
Good job trying to hide that fail in the puddle from the broken all-in-one bathroom. -5
She then goes to school exhausted and smelling of pee. Happy first day of school.
Starburst had found a turtle. I was just barely in time to stop him from eating it. Ew.
Jade: How dare you sneak out of the house to go to school!
By the next morning, his grounded moodlet was gone, so either the timer on it ran out or someone let him off the hook without me knowing.
Do not stop anywhere, just go to bed.
After work, PB went to sue.
I bought them a fairy Castle. I was hoping that Mooncake would take the hint and just go to bed.
The Capp’s moved into a house that has never had good routing up the stairs for me.
Since the family was stuck at the mailbox, I deleted and put the same stairs in. I then had Beignet walk up the stairs to make sure they worked. I am not counting this as a cheat or a child interaction. This was glitch fixing and I needed her to check.
Regan: Omg! It’s Spearmint!
I’m not sure how she saw him. Spearmint was across town at school still.
Mooncake is still sitting here trying to figure out who to ask for a bedtime story and whining cuz she stinks.
Oleander did his homework and Jade stopped 3 feet in front of him, trapping him in that chair somehow. I have no clue what Jade is doing, but neither one was available for a bedtime story.
Wasabi and Glacier were doing their homework too.
Spearmint never came home, but at least he is doing something good.
Cinnaburst had gone home with half-uncle Joss and was doing his homework too.
Even Beignet had gone back down to the Capp mailbox to do her homework.
Apple was recording a commercial.
Successfully thwarted in every way possible, Mooncake goes to bed.
Cool, not that they need the money.
Then a little while later, Apple comes home and gets level 5 in painting. There is no way in hell she is going to complete this LTW.
How come you waited until now to be interesting?
Oleander: Because it’s my birthday?
Now that you have reminded me, let’s hurry and do your cake.
Oleander: So what did my fans have to say?
I am very sad to have to tell you that you had no fans, Oleander. Goodbye.
Oh c’mon, really? Weren’t you grounded for being out after curfew a couple of days ago?
Cinnaburst: Probably. This sucks.
While waiting for the cops, PB finally fixes the broken shower.
Cinnaburst finally made it home and Apple was right on top of him to yell and ground him.
I do believe I hate the bedtime story crap. Spearmint is just minutes away from passing out.
She then gets up and heads to the fairy house while Spearmint forgets what he was supposed to be doing.
He remembered to go to bed with 3 minutes to spare before passing out. Even better, it’s Saturday so they can sleep in today.
18 hours after going to bed, Mooncake wakes up about to starve to death.
Mooncake: I didn’t sleep that long!
Fine, 14 hours later. Geez.
Beignet? You passed up the fairy house!
Mooncake: Want to swim with me after we eat?
Beignet: Oh heck no. I’m gonna find a sucker to read me a story and then I’m going to bed until Monday.
The sucker in question is spending his time off fixing things and cleaning.
I got a pop up that Apple completed a painting. So there is at least one other sucker to read a story. I just hope Beignet waits until after Apple completes taking out the trash.
Mooncake: At least I’m not the only one who passed out this week.
Then she put down the plates to gasp over her sister.
Glacier: Go take a bath, Moonie. You stink and it’s really killing my appetite.
Mooncake: I don’t stink!
Beignet: Can’t you keep it down? I was napping!
Taking Glacier’s disgust to heart, Mooncake heads upstairs to take a bath.
Beignet: Mom, I really have to go pee and even though I’m standing right next to three toilets, I must have a bedtime story. Right now!
Apple: Wouldn’t logic dictate that you pee first and then ask for a story?
Beignet: I’m a complicated creature. Don’t judge me.
Beignet: Maybe I should have gone pee like Mommy said to.
PB: Dear God, you stink.
Beignet: I know, dad. Geez.
Mooncake: I found this thing on the floor and I found out that I can do my homework on it.
I think I took it from Oleander’s inventory and set it on the floor before kicking his ass out.
The only one more unhappy than Beignet is Cinnaburst. Luckily after peeing herself, Beignet went straight to the fairy house to sleep.
Well this was an interesting sight. Why is everyone being so active all of a sudden?
Glacier: Two words. Heir. Poll.
Oh. I thought you knew. The heir poll ended a few hours ago.
Glacier: *squints* What are the results?
You’ll find out in due time. Don’t worry.
Dammit, Wasabi! She was busy and you have never, ever spoken to her before. Why now?
Wasabi: I totally knew that this would piss you off.
I swear, he said two words to her and then started a writing tabcast.
Holy crap! Dual skilling. This is way better than watching Cinnaburst strangle himself in the bathroom.
Mooncake: Mission Piss Off Mom was successful.
Apple: The next time you fairy trick me, I’m gonna spank your ass.
Mooncake: Hahaha. Funny, mom.
Leave your mom alone and finish your painting.
I thought a family outing would be fun. Well, without Cinnaburst and the cats.
Unfun fact: Roaring Heights has no parks. So, I sent them to the beach and leveled out an area for a playground.
All that, and this is what they did for the next few hours.
Except for Wasabi, who eventually found a good way to have fun.
Mooncake: I want a promotion!
Beignet: I’d rather be fishing.
Jade: I need more famous friends.
Glacier: You can’t have a promotion if you don’t have a job, dummy.
Beignet: Glacier is such a turd!
Mooncake: I know!
Then the fog rolled in ruining the outing.
I went to check on Cinnaburst and he was stomping down the hallway. I saw what he was up to and got PB ready to come home.
He took way too much pleasure in that! We now have a dead dollhouse, the first one I have had in probably years.
He is so pleased with himself, that I don’t feel bad about teleporting PB home to catch him just in time to get in trouble.
PB: What the hell is wrong with you? How do you think your sisters are going to feel when they see their toy destroyed?
Cinnaburst: I doubt they will care since they have never played with it before. Geez, lighten up!
PB: Don’t back talk me. You are grounded. Again.
Cinnaburst: *pouts* But I’m already grounded and I have a mood swing and you had a family outing and left me here all alone.
PB: I DON’T CARE! Next time I have a family outing, maybe I’ll get you a babysitter since you are acting like one!
Cinnaburst: That’s not fair!
PB: Life is not fair, get over it and grow up.
Sadly, Donia is an elder and dead by morning. Good try, Oleander, but now go for someone younger.
Meanwhile, I had PB disband the group, but did not realize the time.
Wasabi: Mom! Grandma! Wait! The Fuzz is after me! MOM???
Wasabi: Oh shit! I’m in so much trouble now.
Wasabi: This isn’t fair! You’ll fix it right?
Of course. This was definitely not your fault, unlike Glacier who left the group due to someone’s issues and never went home.
PB: Don’t worry. After I am done scolding you and your brother, I’ll let you off the hook.
Spearmint: I ❤ you, Starburst.
Glacier: Hi, Lifesaver! I’ll give you a treat just as soon as dad is done screaming at Wasabi and me.
Glacier: But it wasn’t my fault! You had issues and I wasn’t sticking around for them!
PB: That does not mean you can stay out after curfew! Grounded!
PB: You’re off the hook, Wasabi. I am so sorry for disbanding the group before you could join the family in the car to come home. That was totally my fault.
Wasabi: Thanks, dad!
In other news, Spearmint ran off and found a guitar. It’s his new addiction.
Too little, too late, I added lights out in the yard. For some reason Jade is flipping out in excitement over an easel they’ve owned for weeks.
Cinnaburst: *ragerageragerage* I HATE YOU PEOPLE!
This because Jade is standing in front of the ITF food thingamajig.
Jade: Yay, cats!
This is when I realized Jade was a cat person and it was not some secret joy of hers. Oops.
Spearmint: He’s feeding the cats treats again, Mom.
Apple: Don’t be a tattletale. It’s his only joy in life, so leave him alone.
Cinnaburst: Yay! Cookie!
PB instructed Wasabi to work on his skills, so he ran off to use the treadmill.
Omg. Finally! I never thought the update would end.
I was going to say “Good boy, Lifesaver” because he was a boy in the last update. Now he’s a she. *scratches head*
