PREVIOUSLY, Tautou's repressed rage came out of hiding, and she took it out on Aria, of all people, resulting in Tautou and Archer moving out. But not before Silas (sixamsims) and Glory's triplets aged into toddlers! Noro decided to get out of the house for a while as well, and visited Bridgeport where, amidst her extensive bar-hopping, she had ONE. SINGLE. DAUGHTER (!!!!) with Sid Alcott (sixamsims). Not long after Remember aged up to toddler, it was time for Noro and Remember to return to their shiny new house in Redcliffs.
NORO: Hmm, this window . . . It's not really like our old windows, you know.
I am well-aware of that. I suggest that you turn that frown upside-down, Noro, because the window is staying.
Some of their outfits, like Noro's for example, will be different. Redone CC folder and all.
CAROLINA: This trampoline . . . I'm not sure about this new object.
It is literally the trampoline from your old house.
CAROLINA: I don't know about this . . . It feels pretty different . . .
DEGAUSSER: These bookshelves . . . We didn't used to have them.
No, and you used to share a room with your sisters. Point being? I think you'll appreciate this house better.
DEGAUSSER: But these bookshelves.
Oh, ffs everyone. It's a new house, let's just move in, move on, and accept it.
NORO: I feel like there's somebody watching me . . .
Don't fear, Noro, Silas has got this.
I honestly think Silas is single-handedly responsible for Zephyrus and Sunday learning all their toddler skills. Such as Zeph being potty-trained, obviously.
His wife is occupied with more important things. Like making an enemy out of Carolina, apparently. Chess is a game of heartbreak and betrayal, after all.
Look, Degausser is doing some productive instead of sitting around with a bitch-face! Oh, happy day.
Guernica clearly didn't get the memo that this is a happy day. May I add that she autonomously decided to practice her martial arts?
Know who else apparently decided to autonomously practice martial arts at the Little Dojo next door?
Luca and Jackie (siouxpergirl)!
They also do this autonomously a lot. ~surprise~
And because Aria has no luck visiting them, what with their work schedules and martial arts-ing, I'm just going to pop in a picture of their toddler son right now.
'Sup, Griffin Crescendo?
That sound you hear in the background is siouxpergirl raging that Luca and Jackie gave me a redhead baby first go. Sorry, darling. ♥
Aria does have better luck stopping by the humble abode of Logan and Alice (gringotts). GUESS HOW MANY BABIES THEY HAD!
Hint: It's more than the two you can see on the floor.
And my personal favorite so far, Alexis.
Aria also saw a vampire while she was out and about. Already?! It's the first day in new!Redcliffs, and we've already got vampires spawned? Jesus.
Much more interesting than a vampire is Andrew Snyder (samannah), whom Aria happened to run into downtown.
The next day, Aria rolled the want to invite Andrew over.
ANDREW: Hey, this is a pretty nice house! Is the upstairs just as nice? I bet it is!
You can stay, bb.
Look who showed up as well!
ARCHER: Ew, this house . . .
May I remind you that you don't live here anymore, crazy-pants?
Noro burnt her pancakes. I'll leave it to you all to decide if she was distracted by the arrival of a cute boy or by, well, look at the previous picture. Yeah.
Given that this was her expression whilst she was chatting up Andrew, I'm going to go with the former option.
Aria, who rolled simultaneous wants to find out if Andrew's single and have a grandchild, kept a close eye on Noro's conversation while she bonded with her existing son-in-law.
ARIA: I want you to know, Silas, even when I do get another son-in-law, there'll always be room in my heart for you.
It should come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that Aria has added yet another best friend to her legion of loyal followers.
Liam has wisely chosen to stay out of his children's love lives. Given how his own love life was - or wasn't, to be more exact - when he was younger, this is definitely for the best.
As for Degausser, Guernica, and Carolina, they are apparently uninterested in such topics as love. Observe:
One, yes, Remember is here, and yes, the family hasn't blinked at the extra toddler. When you have three, what's one more? I mean, really now.
And two, Carolina is a total tickle-monster. This is her favorite autonomous activity, I swear. Well, this, and the "whine about life" interaction. Because her life is hard, y'all.
Guernica is regressing away from romance, it would seem. Which is just as well, as her maturity level would not be able to handle it and it'd be pretty skeevy, tbh.
And the only woman Degausser is interested in right now is his sister - no, not in a Jude-way, in a normal sibling sort of way.
So intense. So the only way to help Degausser reach his LTW because he has no actual interest in either athletics or martial arts. -_-
Hey, Glory? Maybe a little less attention on your brother and a little more on your toddler chilling by the stairs a few feet away?
Parenting skills, we have them.
Archer. Honey. You were in a house with five bathrooms. I thought I was beyond being surprised by Archer's fail, but apparently not.
SILAS: Another male in the house! FINALLY.
ANDREW: He's standing really close to me . . .
SILAS: I wonder if he's thinking of me too?
SILAS: Hey, I'm Silas, are you another male?
SILAS: Whoa, hey, it looks like you are another male! That's just great, we really need some more males around here!
ANDREW: Um, what kind of intro is that? Really now.
SILAS: I'm overflowing with manliness and going to bed like a
ANDREW: Yeah! Me too, like an, um . . .
Like an Edward Cullen, Andrew? DO NOT WANT.
This is real romance. Not I'm-going-to-creep-into-your-room-to-wat
This kid ALWAYS comes home with one of the teens after school, and just creeps around the house, interacting with a single soul.
You know how you get the pop-ups like "Guernica wants to go to so-and-so's house after school. Is this okay?" and you can choose yes or no? Why can't we get those same pop-ups when someone's coming over? For Alvin, it would always be no. ALWAYS NO.
So peaceful, so content . . .
omg, fuck off, Alvin - WE ARE IN PAIN HERE.
Liam's final resting spot in the backyard. Thank you for your genetic contribution, dear. Your never-ending stupidity and your great affection for your children will be sorely missed. ♥
Noro called Andrew over to comfort her, which he was all too happy to do.
ANDREW: Yeah, comforting, I got this.
Noro quickly moved things out of the friend zone. Grief makes a girl do strange things?
I call this shot "How Many Blondes Can I Fit In One Room?" I bet I could fit Zephyrus in there too . . .
GLORY: It's getting too PG-13 in here.
Yeah, best put your mini-me to bed.
Is it still PG-13 if it's the sickeningly sugary sweetness of, say, baby animals?
SILAS: I spy with my little eye a get-together that would be fun to crash . . .
Reasonably, Noro and Andrew decided to take it upstairs.
NORO: I'm really broken up about my dad . . . Comfort me?
What kind of an aphrodisiac is that?!
Apparently a decent one . . .
The next morning Noro was called to work at a salon that employed this nice piece of pixels. How can you tell I'm not playing an EA-populated town?
Noro's actual client was my very own Aidan Fitzgerald, who in no way needs a makeover, and who will be up for download very soon.
In need of a makeover or not, Aidan seems pretty pleased with the results. Pleased enough not to notice his stylist having a grief-related breakdown in the background.
Things aren't any better at the Crescendo house.
Really not better. Unless you're Guernica, that is.
GUERNICA: Okay, I get it, you're all sad. You're also all blocking the way to the fridge.
One of the best parts about the stylist career is running into my other Sims. ♥
LUCA: Hey, I heard a rumor that Dad died. That's not true, is it?
I'm sorry, Luca, it's very true. And Noro is very sensitive about the subject.
Back to your regularly scheduled grief and heartbreak.
Silas had a ghost hunting job in a house belonging to a bunch of Sims I've created. Here are Lennox Orwell, Jessa Victoire, and Lainey Montmartre, all of which will be up for download with Aidan at some point.
I, for one, love the ghost hunting smirk that Silas often sports.
After evicting some ghosts, it's right back into mourning. Aidan is ill-equipped to handle a grown man crying over the father-in-law he barely spoke to.
SILAS: Why, Liam? Why did you have to die so soon? We could've been friends, and now we'll never get the chance!
SILAS: We could've gone to restaurants together! I'm so hungry, and you could've helped me with that!
SILAS: I'm so hungry yet full of grief - this is the worst day ever!
Silas is not alone in that - the hot tub is getting a lot of use these days. It counteracts the negative moodlets from Liam's death, you see.
DEGAUSSER: Weird, I have absolutely nothing on my mind.
CAROLINA: I know that feeling - I like it!
Ah, I see that Glory and Carolina's unfounded animosity is still going strong.
Degausser is the first to discover the shiny new coffee machine in the kitchen.
DEGAUSSER: I need some kind of stimulant to deal with the abundance of estrogen in the house.
I feel you.
Well-caffeinated, Degausser partakes in the usual Crescendo pastime of gaming out with his sisters.
Time for some spam! Specifically, my favorites of Noro's clientele. My bias may be showing. Overpoweringly.
Eva Lapin, another one of mine.
Jude's wife, Sharon. Incidentally, I think the accidental pregnancy was the only reason they ever got married - I never get SP pop-ups about them, and they haven't had another child. Oh, well.
And one more of my creations, Ezra Pierce. Whom Tautou apparently hooked up with for a brief fling. GET IT GIRL.
What kind of client could cause Noro to distort her face like such?
P.S. Never change, Archer. NEVER.
Speaking of Noro's crazy sisters, Silas got a call about ghosts at Tautou and Archer's house. Apparently Tautou? Not a fan of ghosts.
Oh, and something else I should probably mention about Tautou: one of her previous flings with yet another one of my Sims resulted in twin girls. OF COURSE. Current Crescendo generation three girl:boy ratio is 8:3.
Liam! Not so scary of a ghost as the ones scaring Tautou, I'd imagine. Mainly because he hasn't ventured into the house yet, preferring to chill around his gravestone. I, on the other hand, have no such qualms about venturing into the house. In fact, let's do so now!
NORO: My world is kind of starting to revolve around you, Andrew.
Shy kiss interaction FTW.
Dear Andrew, I have one question for you:
He apparently wasn't that disgusted (???) by her lewd (???) actions as he invited her to a party at his unlit abode that very night.
Where this lady proceeded to stare at Logan all night. That train's left the station, lady.
ANDREW: Hey, you! More important things over here!
Much more important! XD
NEXT TIME, weddings, and babies, and birthdays, oh my!
