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.
Eggplant has some great news that he will be sharing later on too!
Glow Bug: I don’t want SP to pair you up with anyone, so will you be my girlfriend?
Pansy: I guess so.
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.
Aww. I think this is child 3 for this couple.
Not going to happen!
Elijah: Did you seriously run across town just for a snack?
LB: Well, I just missed you and got hungry on the way.
LB: Also, I don’t want to spend eternity alone. Become a vampire for me?
Elijah: I thought you’d never ask!
Elijah: I’m so hot for you right now.
LB: C’mon, Lij, I can sneak us into the Judge’s chambers!
Elijah: I better not get arrested for this.
Elijah: Being naughty is fun! Let’s do it again.
Eggplant: Who is the greatest old man in a long time? I am!

Shit. Who turned on Stride of Pride?
The stupidest walk ever and I usually have it shut off.
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.
Grr. This better be a false accusation!
It’s not. -5
Eggplant is still enjoying his accomplishment. He now wants to retire, but not before he does the last opportunity for work.
Moonie: I did not pass out! It was someone that looked like me.
Ivy on freewill is boring. She plays chess or just gets in the way.
Raisin does what Raisin always does: Play video games.
Raisin: Nope, working here.
Well that’s a first.
These two are like rabbits! All I ever hear is woohoo music now and it’s always the oldies.
Raisin: I’m never going back in that house.
Aww, why not?
Raisin: Because you ruined it!
Glow Fly’s room is pink
Firefly’s room is hot pink.
Lightning Bug’s room is lime.
Which means the whole house looks like a watermelon came in and puked everywhere.
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.
Raisin: I bet they didn’t have to deal with blinding colors either.
Awww, no! We gathered him up and put him next to Apple.
Eggplant does the last opportunity for work!
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).
The nursery is one of the more eye pleasing places in the house now.
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.
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.
Blackberry and Raisin started protesting retirement.
Plum: Psst! I see you *creepy ghost whisper*
Glow Bug hunts down Pansy and they have some flirty time. Then Pansy ran off.
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.
I couldn’t remember her likes…I see Spaghetti and Blue. I think that’s Songwriter, but I could be wrong.
Everyone has jobs just to get them out of the house for a bit. LB is the first to get a promotion.
Glow Bug: My name is Pansy and I have the worst traits in the whole world!
Pansy: I’ll show you how I deal with insane dumbasses like you…
Glow Bug: Oh shut up and kiss me.
Glow Bug: Oh and since I want to see your corpse, we might as well get married.
Lightning Bug was a bit jealous that GB got to get married, so he sent love letters to Elijah.
Firefly was not going to be left out either.
She didn’t have a wish for marriage, so they just had a bit of bedsport.
The couch potato trait is very strong in this one. She also only smiles when near the tv.
…and then she leaves to do this! I was quite impressed!
Ooh, you naughty!
The game had crashed, so the next proposal (after getting Pansy to move in again) was in the bathroom.
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.
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.
One of the dogs immediately barks at the fridge and now we have a new gnome.
Glow Bug heads out with the collection helper, moodlet manager and motive mobile and starts gathering up the small animals.
and two snakes so far.
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!
Meanwhile, 24 hours later, we start finding the bugs.
Glow Bug: What if I do all this collecting and it doesn’t work?
Then we get mad and throw tantrums.
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.
We now have two horses to add to the collection.
Just need one more turtle and two butterflies.
Firefly had sent Orion a love letter too. He sent one back and then sent this one also.
Oh shit. Do dead horses count? J/k. I thought she was dead, but she was just scratching her back.
Has it been three days already? Oops.
Horse: So, can I borrow your toothbrush?
GB has a wish that can be done eventually.
First, the family heads across the street to Custard’s pool party.
Custard: Dude, I have some cream from the Hair Club for Men. It works almost immediately.
Cousin Chip: That was amazing!
Chip: I’m now a full member of the club! Thanks, Custard!
Hey, there’s not time to be tired! I have GB quit booing the orange haired guy and hit LB with the moodlet manager.
Custard: Omg, my baby brother is biting people! In public!
Wtf? Why would you want to see your sister naked. Eww!
Hey, you had your chance Crash!
Lightning Bug has bit everyone at the party including all his relatives.
LB: Thanks, Dad.
What the hell is Firefly even doing? I haven’t seen her since the party started.
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.
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.
