Chapter 2

Welcome back!  Last time, Glow Fly, Firefly and Glow Bug took over for generation 10.  They all graduated and met potential love interests, which is where we left our trio.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-28-48-07

Eggplant has some great news that he will be sharing later on too!

TS3 2016-10-31 08-26-55-83

Glow Bug: I don’t want SP to pair you up with anyone, so will you be my girlfriend?
Pansy:  I guess so.

TS3 2016-10-31 08-27-26-17

TS3 2016-10-31 08-28-39-59

Firefly, in the meantime, was romancing Orion until he agreed to be her boyfriend.   Lightning Bug and Elijah were the fastest couple to get together, so LB was already sent home.

TS3 2016-10-31 08-28-10-67

Aww. I think this is child 3 for this couple.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-30-26-62

Not going to happen!

TS3 2016-10-31 09-36-29-94

Elijah:  Did you seriously run across town just for a snack?
LB:  Well, I just missed you and got hungry on the way.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-36-45-63

LB:  Also, I don’t want to spend eternity alone.  Become a vampire for me?
Elijah:  I thought you’d never ask!

TS3 2016-10-31 09-36-56-58

TS3 2016-10-31 09-37-03-98

TS3 2016-10-31 09-37-20-06

TS3 2016-10-31 09-37-30-56

Elijah:  I’m so hot for you right now.
LB:  Ditto.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-38-54-62

LB:  C’mon, Lij, I can sneak us into the Judge’s chambers!

TS3 2016-10-31 09-40-00-54

Elijah:  I better not get arrested for this.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-40-30-84

Elijah:  Being naughty is fun!  Let’s do it again.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-40-55-33

TS3 2016-10-31 09-41-04-50

TS3 2016-10-31 09-41-07-02
TS3 2016-10-31 09-41-09-80

Eggplant: Who is the greatest old man in a long time?  I am!

NTH Spouse topping career:  +5
Completing LTW:                     +40


TS3 2016-10-31 09-41-42-03

Shit.  Who turned on Stride of Pride?

The stupidest walk ever and I usually have it shut off.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-43-26-47

Elijah:  That was the greatest.
LB:  You really need to do that trick with your mouth again.

O-okay…let’s leave these two to flirt.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-46-19-48

Grr.  This better be a false accusation!

TS3 2016-10-31 09-46-24-91

It’s not. -5

TS3 2016-10-31 09-47-31-41

Eggplant is still enjoying his accomplishment.  He now wants to retire, but not before he does the last opportunity for work.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-47-47-71

Moonie:  I did not pass out!  It was someone that looked like me.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-48-03-10

Ivy on freewill is boring.  She plays chess or just gets in the way.

TS3 2016-10-31 09-48-20-40

Raisin does what Raisin always does: Play video games.
Raisin:  Nope, working here.

Well that’s a first.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-15-58-58

These two are like rabbits!  All I ever hear is woohoo music now and it’s always the oldies.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-16-29-78

Raisin:  I’m never going back in that house.
Aww, why not?
Raisin:  Because you ruined it!

TS3 2016-10-31 12-17-02-33

Glow Fly’s room is pink

TS3 2016-10-31 12-17-20-73

Firefly’s room is hot pink.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-17-35-78

Lightning  Bug’s room is lime.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-18-34-36

Which means the whole house looks like a watermelon came in and puked everywhere.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-22-07-75

Blackberry:  Back in my day, we were just happy to have enough money for walls.
Moonie:  Back in your day, you didn’t have to deal with pets, weather or aliens.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-22-14-45

Raisin:  I bet they didn’t have to deal with blinding colors either.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-22-31-74

TS3 2016-10-31 12-23-10-13

Awww, no!  We gathered him up and put him next to Apple.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-23-24-00

Eggplant does the last opportunity for work!

TS3 2016-10-31 12-24-06-01

What a hoebag!  First, she was with Boysenberry (Glow Bug’s uncle) and had three kids, then she started dating Peanut Brittle (Glow Bug’s great-grandfather), and then when he dies she picks Chip (Glow Bug’s cousin; Thistle’s son).

TS3 2016-10-31 12-26-46-70

The nursery is one of the more eye pleasing places in the house now.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-27-54-68

I yanked out my new painting replacement mod and put back in Plum’s, which has nicer paintings.  Moonie finished this painting, one that I have never seen before.  I’m not sure why the kitties are on a plate, and I don’t want to know.  I’m not even going to wonder about the shrimps they are wrapped up with.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-28-02-35

TS3 2016-10-31 12-28-48-07

I’m so happy that Eggplant gets to retire.  His lifebar is maxed, so I want him to be able to enjoy the rest of his days at home.  Moonie might retire too.  She made it to level 6 in education.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-29-54-13

Blackberry and Raisin started protesting retirement.

Plum:  Psst!  I see you *creepy ghost whisper*

TS3 2016-10-31 12-34-25-68

TS3 2016-10-31 12-35-17-70

Glow Bug hunts down Pansy and they have some flirty time.  Then Pansy ran off.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-41-45-35

Glow Bug hunts her down again and asks her to move in.  While that happens, we see the outside of the house.  Just don’t tell Raisin what we did to his squad car.  He hasn’t seen it yet.  The only major change (besides the eye murdering colors) was new windows everywhere.  The other ones got on my nerves.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-42-21-62

TS3 2016-10-31 12-42-32-21

I couldn’t remember her likes…I see Spaghetti and Blue.  I think that’s Songwriter, but I could be wrong.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-43-09-33

Everyone has jobs just to get them out of the house for a bit.  LB is the first to get a promotion.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-43-54-71

Glow Bug:  My name is Pansy and I have the worst traits in the whole world!

TS3 2016-10-31 12-44-16-89

Pansy:  I’ll show you how I deal with insane dumbasses like you…

TS3 2016-10-31 12-44-48-58

Glow Bug:  Oh shut up and kiss me.

TS3 2016-10-31 12-47-27-80

Glow Bug:  Oh and since I want to see your corpse, we might as well get married.

TS3 2016-10-31 19-50-56-85

Lightning Bug was a bit jealous that GB got to get married, so he sent love letters to Elijah.

TS3 2016-10-31 19-57-35-92

Firefly was not going to be left out either.

TS3 2016-10-31 19-58-58-89

She didn’t have a wish for marriage, so they just had a bit of bedsport.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-07-15-95

The couch potato trait is very strong in this one.  She also only smiles when near the tv.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-09-29-13

…and then she leaves to do this!  I was quite impressed!

TS3 2016-10-31 20-10-53-05

Ooh, you naughty!

TS3 2016-10-31 20-13-39-38

The game had crashed, so the next proposal (after getting Pansy to move in again) was in the bathroom.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-14-56-60

Firefly:  I can’t believe she got married in the bathroom!
Ivy: Most founders and heiresses do this.  It’s just a right of passage for sims everywhere.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-35-11-68

The goal is to get the Ark Builder LTW done without Pansy ever doing a thing for it.  Plus, Cymoril is almost an elder, and we need a mate for him.  All three are from Catlover and Hollyberry (I swear she came with that name) will be Cymoril’s mate.  So that’s, two dogs and two (well, three) cats in the house.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-36-56-52

One of the dogs immediately barks at the fridge and now we have a new gnome.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-40-47-95

TS3 2016-10-31 20-42-40-45

Glow Bug heads out with the collection helper, moodlet manager and motive mobile and starts gathering up the small animals.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-50-31-46

Two lizards.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-50-39-62

Two rodents

TS3 2016-10-31 20-50-54-57

One turtle.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-50-58-27

TS3 2016-10-31 20-51-26-87

Two birds.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-51-08-26

TS3 2016-10-31 20-51-17-27

and two snakes so far.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-57-34-00

In the kitchen, Pansy figured out how to feed herself.

Pansy: It’s this or starve to death.
Or you can grab leftovers out of the fridge.
Pansy:  It all has MEAT in it.  Eww!

TS3 2016-10-31 20-58-47-19

Meanwhile, 24 hours later, we start finding the bugs.

TS3 2016-10-31 20-59-41-84

Glow Bug:  What if I do all this collecting and it doesn’t work?
Then we get mad and throw tantrums.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-03-49-16

Glow Bug: I hope they aren’t two headed pets like in Fallout 4.
I think those are cows, so just get the damn horses.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-04-39-79

TS3 2016-10-31 21-05-26-12

We now have two horses to add to the collection.

Just need one more turtle and two butterflies.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-07-53-70

Firefly had sent Orion a love letter too.  He sent one back and then sent this one also.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-09-36-64

Oh shit.  Do dead horses count?  J/k.  I thought she was dead, but she was just scratching her back.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-10-46-06

Has it been three days already?  Oops.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-11-03-39

Horse:  So, can I borrow your toothbrush?

TS3 2016-10-31 21-11-58-85

GB has a wish that can be done eventually.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-13-28-16

First, the family heads across the street to Custard’s pool party.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-13-49-00

Custard:  Dude, I have some cream from the Hair Club for Men.  It works almost immediately.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-15-12-09

Cousin Chip:  That was amazing!

TS3 2016-10-31 21-15-24-64

Chip:  I’m now a full member of the club!  Thanks, Custard!

TS3 2016-10-31 21-15-32-27

Hey, there’s not time to be tired!  I have GB quit booing the orange haired guy and hit LB with the moodlet manager.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-18-31-05

Custard:  Omg, my baby brother is biting people!  In public!

TS3 2016-10-31 21-19-11-86

Wtf?  Why would you want to see your sister naked.  Eww!

TS3 2016-10-31 21-19-27-76

Hey, you had your chance Crash!

TS3 2016-10-31 21-21-19-37

Lightning Bug has bit everyone at the party including all his relatives.

LB: Thanks, Dad.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-21-43-48

What the hell is Firefly even doing?  I haven’t seen her since the party started.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-22-18-98

Chip:  Hey, have you heard the news?
Firefly:  What news?
Chip:  Playing chess at your brother’s house is inappropriate!  You better stop before he has another fit.

TS3 2016-10-31 21-21-50-80

Aww and another baby is on the way!

I think this is a great stopping point.  Next time, two babies will be born and maybe some other good stuff too.

So, I was trying to set a goal for myself and noticed that the first ever Tart chapter was posted on 12/12/2011.  I quickly used my fingers to do some counting and realized that December 12 is only six weeks away.  My goal is to post six chapters in six weeks and end on the same date I started on, making Chapter 7 the last official chapter.  If I need more chapters, I will just do two updates a week.  If I need less chapters, I’ll just schedule them further apart.  The next chapter is done (just needs written up), and it will post in one week!

My other goal is to get the Gen 10 pics taken and then upload them to simfileshare so they can finally be ready for download and update the front page.  Tall order considering my pre-order of Final Fantasy 15 was paid yesterday and I have no clue when that ships (it’s out Nov. 30 though).  City Living is currently downloading right now too.  I’m also mid-Fallout 4, Skyrim Special Edition is downloading (got that free for having the original), and I’m in Act 3 of my millionth play through of Dragon Age 2.  This is why you have not had many updates from me lately.

In other news, we got a notice in the mail that our internet is going high speed.  I can’t wait for that to hit.  They said sometime today or tomorrow.  Our current speed is 1mbps (example:  1400 words and 95 pics took 75 minutes to upload for Chapter 2; pic size 1000×625) and we are going to 10 or 15 mbps and there is barely a price increase, which is great for us people that live rurally.

TH:  10 (x3)

Passing out: (1) –5

NTH Spouse topping a career: +5
Completed a LTW: +40

  1. At least those ‘moar baby!’ wishes prove Ivy and Raisin are good together. Sometimes I wonder if sims really are matched well, with the speed of most romances in the game. Wishes like Ivy’s prove it!

    OMG, watermelon house is so right. Though at least there’s no real clash, just uber bright. We could have had orange or red with the hot pink + green…

    LMAO, the pic of the horse grinning at Ivy, so funny! Pansy’s traits do really suck for an ISBI, but at least the pet LTWs someone else can do for them. And hey, she’s pretty, so…

    Great news about your internet, moar speed is always better! Though we may lose you with all the games that you will have fast access to now!

    • yes, more babies and now they want 5 grandbabies. Then there’s Moonie and Eggplant, 3 days past their death date and still they are boinking constantly.
      That horse with his dirty brown teeth was hysterical.
      Pansy does get an update on her traits. I have no regrets. She is very pretty. I love her otherwise.
      I am so excited for the internet. I just with it would hurry up and get here already.
      I’m more excited about streaming videos. Seriously. Watching one episode of a show right now takes 2-4 hours.
