Dawn breaks across the frozen wasteland of Lucky Palms. And somewhere, in a strange not-quite manor, awakens the new ruler of the domain.
Welcome back! To the dawning of the Diabolical’s second year and second generation! Isn’t this grand! Where were we? Ah yes, the entire family (sans cats…too many cats) had gone to the Fall Festival in order for Lili and Moriarty to duke it out for heirship. Lili won.
Ah, yes. Morarity was scaring his older sister as a means of revenge. Evil boy! Evil boy! *coos*
Where are the previous generation, you ask?
Then Mori disappoints by skipping through the frosty grass and picking flowers. Damn, if he isn’t pretty, though.
Mori: Or I’m removing the only traces of color left in this frozen wasteland. It’s all a matter of perspective.
I think Rosie’s rubbing off on him.
Speak of the devil, Rosie here visited the haunted house. How was it?
Rosie: I think I found true love.
Oh…that’s just creepy.
She proceeded back into the haunted house….*shudders*
Back with Lili, I come to realize she has waylaid the wrong young man.
Lili: So, I know you’re only a teenager, but I’ve been chosen as heir to my family’s legacy, so I need to start popping out babies.
Rusty: The fuck?
Lili, no! That’s creepy! Bad!
With some strange notions starting to fill the girls’ heads, they’re sent out to get jobs.
Rosie: I just got a job at the fanciest restaurant in town. I feel so fulfilled.
Was that sarcasm, young lady! >:(￼
Lili: Woo! I just got my first job! So much fullfillment!
At least one of you appreciates my efforts.
Both: Can haz China?
And at some point we got a new family photo. Don’t mind Kitty’s face, she’s just having some difficulties adjusting to life as a human again.
While the girls are wishing for things I will NOT grant, Kitty & Max have decided that the evening’s still young and hit up a bar.
Kitty tries some classy drinks, one called KTHXBAI.
Kitty: You left the walls down.
Meanwhile Max shakes his elderly rump.
Oh so dignified.
Max: Be silent. This is for celebrity points.
I hate the paparazzi…but I LOVE getting free stuff!
On the other side of town, our heiress is working on her Athletic skill, since it’s pretty necessary to outrun the cops.
This is her getting her first skill point.
And this is her getting her second skill point. XD
Athletics is a skill I’m quite familiar with, but I’ve NEVER seen a sim trip more than Lili has. Not even a Clumsy sim!
Once she’s fatigued (a hair’s breadth from lv 3! Argh!), Lili returns home to skill up her Logic…because I have a vague inkling that that’ll be useful later for an Emperor of Evil.
Lili: Are you going to keep taking pictures?
Yes. Do something cool. Like freak out.
Lili: No! You’re not the boss of me!
Because I’m so great at this simming thing, I totally skipped taking a picture of it, but Kitty got us a Motive Mobile and a Moodlet Manager. Motive Mobile because its awesome! And Moodlet Manager because I’ve never had one! 😀
Oh, look! It’s Lynx! Precious cinnamon bun! 🙂 I’ve decided he’s the cat we’re keeping. He fits better with Lili.
Lynx: Yes, stare at me, not the strange things my future mate and her mother are doing.
What do you me—
I didn’t think you guys were that close.
Nikita: Nothing to see here. Move along.
Obeying the booster of the family funds, we begin Lili’s first day at work. Except its canceled in favor of graduation. *sigh*
Rosie: Fucking graduation. I’m in the middle of cooking! Better finish this first.
And thus the house did not burn down. Rosie did reach level 4 cooking, though.
But I think that did mess up something.
Rosie: Why aren’t we moving?
Max: Where is the driver?
They sat in a cab outside the house until Lili had graduated. Only then did Rosie see fit to get out of the stationary car and graduate.
Rosie got ‘Most Likely to Take Over the World’, as well as Class Valedictorian.
And Lili got ‘Most Likely to Be Mediocre’. XD I swear, the game knows!
Despite being mediocre, Lili knows what’s needed by the heir. Here she is sneaking up on an unsuspecting Anton Dreamer.
Anton: What is that thing? And why is it coming closer?
Lili: Heeheeheehee! I’ve got him now!
We both believed that to be the case. That is, until Anton’s mother went into labor.
Damnit Darleen! You’ve got two grown children! No more babies!
Darleen: Are you helping or not?!
Yeah, yeah. I’ll send the heir over soon.
As soon as she’s done introducing herself to this lovely young man.
Hmmm…Hudson…why does that name ring a bell?
Oh, yeah! Max’s first nemesis in Lucky Palms was Ariel Hudson! Hmmm, the offspring of two sworn enemies falling in love? Or at least having babies?! I like it. >:)
That’s it for today! My game’s running fine, but my word processor’s crashing every other minute. *sigh* I’m fairly certain I know what’s wrong, though, so there should be another chapter soon.
What do you think of Hans? He’s rather stern looking, but I think his and Lili’s faces would mesh nicely. …that’s so weird to say out loud.
Anywho! Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time! ^_^
