crescendo 3.3  

I guess I should put down my book and write an update, yeah? LET'S DO THIS.

PREVIOUSLY, ugh, I don't feel like writing one of these. Is it bitchy to say read the previous updates? Yeah? Okay. Um, well, there was a teenaged party which ground to a halt thanks to Aria's mad ninja skills. Bar-star Emma Kate met the equally alcoholic McNulty Bumble-Embassy and ended up marrying him and getting knocked up by him, much to the chagrin of Biko and Cain. Though not in that order. SHOTGUN WEDDINGS FTW. After a long, torrid night leading to several proposals, Sunday also had a (possibly shotgun?) wedding with discovered-to-be-insane Gilbert Storms (vayleen). Glory aged up, which was overshadowed by Ares aging up into a ridiculously good-looking set of pixels whose good looks couldn't be overshadowed even by Luno dying his hair blue. STILL SEXY. Aria had a romantic evening with her sun-and-stars, Liam (kittehbomb), and then painted a romantic picture of Edward Cullen WHICH I AM NEVER EVER SELLING. Andrew also entered the world of the elderly. And, to finish off the birthdays, Biko and Chance finally became young adults. Both Ares and Biko moved out, but not before marrying Quincey Deens (simpairment) and Ivy Cosmo (scorpiosims) respectively. And Luno had multiple neurotic breakdowns, culminating in wetting herself a foot away from the toilet. Oh, and she made this face. NEVER FORGET. And finally, Remember and Zephyrus returned from Bridgeport with their respective fiancé(e)s and bastard babies in tow.


Zeph made a beeline for his mother upon arriving home, probably sensing that he had some explaining to do.
ZEPHYRUS: Mom. I'm standing right here.
GLORY: That's nice, honey, who's the girl?
ZEPHYRUS: That's what I want to talk to you about . . .

GLORY: Wait. Is that a baby? Why is there a baby?

GLORY: Get talking, son.

ZEPHYRUS: So, don't freak out-
GLORY: Bit late for that, I think.
ZEPHYRUS: Right. Well, when we were in Bridgeport, I met a girl. And we kind of, you know, hooked up. And then I found out she was using me so I called it off. But then I found out she was pregnant. Well, actually, Re found that out, that was all Re, the girl didn't tell me anything, and then I confronted her about it and I wanted to bring the baby here, because you're the best mom ever, and I didn't want her to grow up away from you and this environment, and so this is my daughter, Myla. And this is my fiancée, Pumpkin.
PUMPKIN (simmply_anna): Hi, Mrs. Crescendo. Lovely house.
ZEPHYRUS: . . . Mom? Why aren't you saying anything? You're mad, aren't you? Oh God, I didn't want you to be mad, I just-

GLORY: I'm not mad, I'm just surprised. But if you're happy, then what more can a mother ask for?
GLORY: Of course.
I see you making bedroom eyes at Zeph there, Pumpkin. Conflict's resolved? WOOHOO TIME!

Not kidding.

They look rather proud of themselves, don't they? Come home, introduce your fiancée and bastard baby to your mother, then bang said fiancée in the hot tub.

. . . and then again bang said fiancée in grandmother's shower. Clearly they are not trying for a baby here, as Pumpkin is behind Zeph. I have no idea what they're doing, actually.


Okay, let's go back to a more innocent time, a time where we cannot unsee these things that have been seen, but we can ignore them in favour of pure unadulterated goodness. Re, your turn!

NORO: You and your cousin were gone for so long, Remember, and now you both come pack with a fiancé and a baby apiece? What happened in Bridgeport, honey? I know you went to find your father, but I never expected that you'd end up taking the same road I did-

REMEMBER: Mom, wait, I'm going to stop you there. I know it looks like I went down the same path you did, but Fluffy, my fiancé, he's different than Sid. We hit it off really well, Mom, and he never left my side - he basically lived at the house with Zeph and I after we met! And he's my fiancé and he came home with me - he's different than my father.

NORO: That's great! You know that I trust your judgment and if Fluffy makes you happy, then I'm happy, and-

NORO: Wait. Did you say something about your father, about Sid? Did you meet him, were you able to track him down?
REMEMBER: I did. He's . . . fine. We're going to try to stay in better contact now, I guess. Mom, I'm sorry, I know you want to talk, but I'm pretty tired after the trip. Do you mind if I go to bed?
NORO: I, no, of course not. We can talk another time. Good night, honey.

REMEMBER: Hey. I know it's been a lot to take in and a big change for you and all, so thank you for being so cool about the meeting the family thing. I know we're kind of overwhelming. So, I just wanted to thank you.

And thank him she did. In the privacy of her own bedroom. WHAT A NOVEL IDEA, I WONDER IF ZEPH AND PUMPKIN ARE LISTENING.
Because I haven't actually said it in this update, though everybody knows it, Re's fiancé is the amazing Fluffy Mrmpfle by the even-more-amazing (IT'S POSSIBLE!) simmply_anna.)

The next day started off not with a bang, but with the consequences of a bang. (I'M SO WITTY . . . -_-).

And more consequences, which . . . yeah. I did not know that they risky woohooed so this was a fun surprise. It's not like Re's ever got pregnant off of risky woohoo before, I'm sure it'll be okay. OH WAIT, THE ONLY OTHER TIME SHE EVER RISKY WOOHOOED SHE GOT PREGNANT. So, that happened.

Let's move on to less worrying things. Like Myla, whose birthday it is! And whose birthday I didn't get any pictures of, but that's okay, you just want to see the result, don't you?

Cute! All that she got from Zeph was his skintone and eye colour, the rest is all her mother I think. I'm not great at picking out toddler features but I know those aren't Zeph's lips and I'm pretty sure that's not his nose. Anyway, cute!

As the first toddler in my game since I installed Generations (I really need to get better at updating), Myla gets quite abused by the claw interaction. FAIR WARNING.

She's going to be such a daddy's girl, I can just tell. ♥

Or a great-grandma's girl, perhaps?
ARIA: It's been too long since I've been able to raise a toddler - there's the potty, we're going to have so much fun, aren't we, sweetpea?
Oh, Aria. Never change. ♥

I seriously don't know what I'll ever do without her.

Oblig toddler-on-the-potty shot.
Where was Myla's father while his grandmother was raising his child, you ask?

Hanging out with his favourite cousin, of course. Who is so much more badass at martial arts than he is, honestly.

See? Badass, I tell you!

Re's own child was being taken care of by a rather distraught Luno.
LUNO: How can something so little make a noise so big? It doesn't make sense, this defies basic physics!
Or something like that, surely.

LUNO: There, there, January, it's okay, Auntie Luno is here . . . Hey, this is actually pretty nice. I like this.

LUNO: Just stealing a baby, no big deal.
Whatever. You live in the same house as that baby so it's not like your hideout will be far away.

LUNO: So, Zeph, I've been thinking, Myla's already a toddler, she's getting pretty old. I think it's time that you have another baby.
ZEPHYRUS: Duly noted, Luno.
LUNO: But really, what time's better than the present? Gotta act while you're still at your most fertile and all!

I think it's safe to say that his fertility has proven itself. Poor Pumpkin, the first sim I've had that didn't make it to a toilet. HOW EMBARRASSING.

Looks like Re's fertility may have also been proven. Then again, she's standing by the toddler potties, so there could be a stench rising off of them. That is also a distinct possibility since only Glory and Andrew (samannah) ever both to empty them.

Oh, well, I guess it wasn't just the potties' stench then. They popped at, no lie, the exact same time. Well then.

Since we'll soon have infants in the house (fuck me, it's going to be plural either way, jfc), it worked out well that January was due to age up. I didn't get any pictures of her in the process but that's okay because . . . drum roll please . . .

Purple hair and elf ears, which I know many of you were hoping for! I was originally going to change any purple-haired babies' hair to Fluffy's natural blond but seeing how excited some of you were for purple, I didn't quite have the heart to. Not to mention that she's adorable as is! I have no idea where those eyes came from - simmply_anna, any ideas? WHATEVER, IDGAF, I LOVE HER.

Aria also loves her. Seriously, how cute is this? Not as cute as the next picture, let me tell you.

ARIA: Look what's coming to get you, it's the Galactica on a crash course with you, a mere Cylon raider! Uh-oh!
January looks rather put-upon by this idea of playtime, but I feel Aria on this.

REMEMBER: What's wrong, January? Was Grandma scaring you with stories about the Galactica on a crash course?

REMEMBER: It's okay, honey, the Galactica has Adama. Nothing bad can happen under the command of Adama, that man is flawless.
Damn straight.

Okay, enough of my very biased pop culture references, I guess I could write this as an actual, you know, legacy.
. . . Yeah, let's not kid ourselves.

Given that I will soon have at least two more toddlers on my hands, it is definitely time to go into overdrive on January's toddler skills.
REMEMBER: Okay, let's do this. Repeat after me: Ron Swanson. Come on, January, you can do this. Ron Swanson.

Yeah, that's a WTF face if I've ever seen one. Perhaps we should start smaller and then work our way up to the epic of Ron Swanson?

Myla, having learned most of her toddler skills, gets to eat.
That sounds bad. She learned her skills so she gets to eat. As if I'm implying that otherwise she wouldn't be fed. Um . . .

Her father's too busy working out to worry about minor things like feeding his daughter. Working out by himself, since his partner-in-crime is too pregnant to work out with him.
ZEPHYRUS: Okay, you can do this. Sure, you're by yourself, but that's totally cool. You can do this.


Meanwhile, the other father-to-be was outside the theatre, where shit was clearly going down, if Aidan's reaction is any indication.

AIDAN: Oh my God oh my God oh my God!
FLUFFY: I can't look!
ASHA: What are you guys going on about?

ASHA: Wait. Is this labour? What the fuck what the fuck ow!


So, I feel like Fluffy's well-prepared for this next bit . . .

The day starts off normally enough, with Pumpkin getting out of bed to immediately worship at the altar of Bret and Jemaine.
PUMPKIN: They're so hot, they're like a curry . . . I've heard hot foods are supposed to induce labour . . . mmm, curry . . .

Apparently they are hot like a curry (BOOM) because labour? INDUCED.

At that VERY SAME MOMENT downstairs, Re also went into labour. By impaling herself upon a decorative divider. And neither girl would go to the hospital for some reason. idk.

Pregnancy jig for a home birth! I can't be the only one amused by this animation, can I?

And, born in a cluster of sparkles much like how I imagine Edward Cullen's birth to have gone (DON'T CORRECT ME), Eli Crescendo came into the world. I've gotten really bad with writing down likes and such, so don't expect that information until I get him up for download in the distant future. (THE YEAR 2000) I do have a handy little CAS shot with his traits coming up in this update though. I'm too lazy to find it and write his traits down now, tbh. Welp.

D'awww, so cute. ♥ Pumpkin looks quite proud of herself and rightly so! A single boy? YOU GO GIRL.

Re also gave birth to a single boy! This is Avery.

We have babies - quick, finish the toddler-skilling, guys!

SILAS (sixamsims): Now, Myla, I realize that your mother and father are far from married and probably never will be, but that is no reason to look down upon marriage yourself. In fact, your grandma and I didn't consummate our relationship until after we were married.
LIE. Glory just didn't manage getting knocked up until after you were married; she had ~standards. More importantly, INAPPROPRIATE. Thank God that a two-year old won't have any solid memories from this time. Right? Right? Oh God, I hope that's scientifically proven.

ARIA: Okay, January, think fast - there are Cylon raiders fast approaching but you still have two Vipers out. One is carrying your son. Do you jump or wait for them? I expect a full explanation in your answer.
I have decided that Aria is a Battlestar Galactica fan.

Hi, Ares, why are you back? Not like I'm not happy to be graced with your smoldering good looks once more. PLEASE STAY.
ARES: Mom's birthday. Re threatened me if I didn't come.
REMEMBER: And I wore my martial arts uniform so you'd know I meant business.
ARES: Bitch.

And then I didn't get any pictures of Noro actually aging up? I don't know where my mind was at when I was playing this, but let's move onto one of the cutest elders I've ever seen!

RIGHT? RIGHT? She looks cuter in action, when she's not sporting the default pissed off look that CAS gives all my sims. But siriusly, she makes an adorable elder and I love her. ♥ Even if Biko didn't show up, Chance was at work, and Luno was busy chilling with Cain, I showed up for her birthday. Of course, I was sitting there not documenting it like the all-mighty ruler I am . . . I ROCK.

At least her great-niece Arianna (Luca and Jackie (siouxpergirl) showed up. Though I suspect it was just for the free cake.
ARIANNA: Cakey cakey, in my tummy, me so hungee, me so hungee!

Luno was too busy having important discussions with Cain to partake in something so pedestrian as her mother's birthday.
LUNO: Ares got pretty buff since he moved out, and when I asked him about it, he said that Quincey liked him buff and when I get married, I'll learn all about compromising for marriage! What does that mean?

CAIN: Buff men, you say?
LUNO: Um, my brother, yeah.
CAIN: Oh, right. Ahem. Um, I guess you'll have to find out when you're married.

CHANCE: Move, losers, I want to play video games.

CHANCE: Ahhh, this is the life.

Luno occupied herself with one of the children, as she is wont to do.
LUNO: I like the smell of toddler hair . . .

Cain, however, spurred by the talk of buff men, went to visit his good friend, Sam Deens (simpairment). It was kind of . . . awkward?
CAIN: Hey.
SAM: Hey.

SAM: So, um, Cain, what's up? I was going to go get a suit for prom tonight, even though I'm not sure if I'm going . . .

CAIN: Prom? Why wouldn't you go? My cousin Chance said that it was awesome! Then again, she spiked the punch and ended up prom queen because everyone was drunk enough to vote for her, but still. We should go together! That way you'll have to go, if we make a plan now!
MCNULTY: Wait, my brother-in-law is asking Sam to prom? Huh.

CAIN: I'll let you in on a little secret - my cousin Chance keeps her booze under her bed and I've already stolen some to spike the punch.
EMMA KATE: Oh, I remember the days of spiking the punch . . . The thrill of drinking is gone now that I'm legal. What I wouldn't give to be young again . . .

CAIN: Doesn't that sound fun?
SAM: It does!

CAIN: So you'll go with me?
SAM: Why, yes, I suppose so.
CAIN: REALLY? You mean it?

Sadly, Cain's time was cut short as he was out past his curfew and some swashbuckling cop decided that it was bad news for a teenager to hang out at his sisters' place after hours. THE HORROR.
CAIN: . . . shit.

Quick interruption for a peek at all the generation four cousins who cohabit Sam's house!

This is Jess, the eldest daughter of Sunday and Gilbert (vayleen).

And Annemarie, their younger daughter. I find it odd that both girls got their grandmother's hair colour. But I love it!

Here's Emma Kate and McNulty's oldest, Charlotte.

And finally, their other child, McKinley. I love how McNulty gave his son a Mc-name.

Cain arrived home to Re chewing him out. HOW DARE YOU BE AT YOUR SISTERS' HOUSE AFTER DARK, CAIN. HOW DARE YOU!
CAIN: Right, like I'm going to listen to my cousin that I'm in trouble? That's rich!
REMEMBER: . . . I don't like this feeling of being undermined.

FLUFFY: You stay out past curfew and you belittle my fiancée? Too far, Cain, too far!
CAIN: Dude, what the hell? You're not even related to me!

FLUFFY: So I'm just supposed to allow you to go out in the darkness of night because I'm not related to you? You make all those related to you worry - and those who aren't related to you!

CAIN: Okay, okay, I get it. God, chill out.
I can't wait to see how over-protective Fluffy will be of his own children. And we're one step closer to finding up - Eli and Avery birthdays, go!

Eli, looking very much like his mother. How much do I love those chubby cheeks? ♥

And Avery, who just as clearly has some Mrmpfle genes in him. Well-done, genetics!

Genetics can only get us so far in life. Unfortunately, they amount for shit when it comes to toddler skills.
REMEMBER: Say mama. Mama.

Close enough.

CHANCE: Toddler-rearing in this house? That's altogether too happy! Stop it, I say, stop it!

CHANCE: There will be no happiness when I am the empress of evil! None!

CHANCE: Yes, one day, it will happen. Until then, beware!

Okay, I don't usually reuse the same gif but . . .

I decided that Chance should probably get out of the house, for reasons that should be quite obvious, and so she, following in her grandmother's footsteps, headed down to the fire station to stalk see her beloved. Hot damn, do I ever hate trying to lock down a spouse in the firefighter career. It's not fun.
CHANCE: Prepare yourselves, boys. I'm here.

CHANCE: Yes, prey!
I feel that it is time to stop referring to your boyfriend as "prey," tbqh.
ROSS (simpairment): This is the girl I was thinking of having babies with? Is there something wrong with me?

Well, he seems rather well-ensnared. I think it's pure strategy for Chance to wear a top like that to prepare for hugs from her intended.

CHANCE: I'm so happy to see you, Ross. I think you've gotten more muscled in our time apart, which can only be a good thing.
ROSS: Yeah?

I'd say that's a resounding yes.
I also appreciate how Ross' very-appropriately-dressed is pretending not to look at them as they OM NOM NOM each other's faces off. Thank you, kind lady.

CHANCE: We should do this more often. What do you say, hot stuff?

And now a break from Chance's success at romance (of all people) to the complete opposite.

SILAS: Well, this is awkward.

LIAM: How dare you do that to me! How dare you!
ARIA: But Liam, I don't even know what I did to you!
LIAM: You have kissed another man! Even though I am dead and this happened months ago and you never actually cheated on me, I AM ENRAGED.
NORO: I'm just going to stare off into space here and pretend I'm not here . . .

ARIA: Come on, Liam, I love you, you are my sun and stars. Can't we just forget about all of this, since it doesn't even make sense anyway?

LIAM: No. No, we cannot.
ARIA: Fine. Let's be mad at each other then. Even though I've gotten tired of trying to track down Ezra at the fire station, I will join you in being mad about this situation.
So, um, thanks for that, Generations.

NORO: Oh, hey, I know how to diffuse some tension. Look over here, everyone!
ilu Noro ♥

The girls then proceeded to play video games to wipe away the awkwardness. Aww, my elderly heiresses.

Liam, of course, joined in to spend some quality time with his daughters. I've almost forgiven him for making a scene out of nothing.

Of course, then Cain has to go make a scene out of nothing.
CAIN: What. Are. You. Trying. To. Tell me, hand? BEGONE!

CAIN: Oh, look at the time - it's time for me to go!
Go? Go where?

Oooooooooooh. Well then.
CAIN: Hey, Sam, I was wondering, and it's cool if you don't want to, but I was just wondering and thought it couldn't hurt to ask, and it couldn't, could it? But you like stars, right? Who doesn't like stars, they're pretty, so you must like stars. Unless you don't. And that's cool too, you don't have to like stars, but if you do like them, I was wondering, do you want to go watch them with me?

CAIN: I'm glad you like the stars, Sam.
SAM: Yeah, well, as you said, who doesn't, right?

CAIN: Yep. So. This got kind of awkward. And Fluffy grounded me so I hope this is worth it. Should I try to make it worth it? Maybe?

Worth it, Cain?

CAIN: I know you agreed to go to prom with me and all, but since we'll actually be aging up before then, how about, you know, just being my boyfriend? Maybe?

SAM: Oh, um, look, Cain, I like how things are with us right now. Let's not mess with that, okay?

SAM: I don't mean any offense but you get what I'm saying, right?

CAIN: Oh, yeah, I get it, and we can just go on as we are, I guess . . .
Playing hard to get, Sam? I SEE HOW IT IS. Game on, Sam. Game. On.

LUNO: I approve of Ross - he could give me more nieces and nephews to steal! I mean play with. More nieces and nephews to play with.
CHANCE: Hey, baby, why don't you turn around for me? Let me see that booty pop.

If you've been to my tumblr in the last day or two, then you'll know where my mind's been at. And that place is here.

I suppose it would've been too much to ask for Chance to not have a meltdown at touching a male for more than two seconds. Baby steps, Chance, baby steps.

This is how I found out that Luca died. Luca . . . ;_;

A mother should not outlive her son, this is just too sad. I need to look around the house for a happy moment.

Which will not be found with Glory upstairs. She and Luca had been best friends since her childhood. MY HEART. IT BREAKS.

Okay, happiness, we need happiness . . .


Really cute!

Cu- wait, what is going on here?
ANDREW: Don't blame me, I'm just in it for the money!

SAVANNA (brilliantcat): That's right, I'm in town now.

I like to think that Re sensed a disturbance in the force, so to speak, as she mastered the martial arts skill. Some words of wisdom for Savanna, from the gospel of Omar Little: You come at the king, you best not miss.

Zephyrus was meanwhile oblivious to the probable hurricane hitting downtown Redcliffs.
ZEPHYRUS: Okay, Eli, you've got the toybox, the dollhouse, and the potty, and Daddy will just be having a quick bite to eat in the other room. I love you, buddy.
Perhaps not the best place to leave the baby, Zeph.

Namely because another force of evil is becoming distinctly more self-sufficient not ten feet away.

MYLA: So, how do I look? Fabulous, right?

Much better! She rolled rebellious, like, great, thanks for that. But hey, she is super-cute, so I suppose it evens out, right?

. . . or perhaps not?
MYLA: Muahaha, I can now begin to put my plans into action! Where to begin, where to begin . . .?

ELI: *giggles in the corner*

MYLA: Hey, baby brother, want a treat?
ELI: Treat, treat!

MYLA: Okay, here it comes!

ELI: Treat?

MYLA: Mmm, this lollipop sure is good. Probably the best lollipop I've ever had! Too bad I only have one. Better luck next time, baby bro.

ELI: Treat?

To take a page out of arisily's books, I fee like a toddler would have fully-formed thoughts, at the very least. IT'S SCIENCE OK.
ELI: At least I have you, Patterns. We'll show her! One day, Patterns, one day . . .

NEXT TIME, romance! Lots of romance! And birthdays, lots of those too! Including Luno and Cain's transitions to adulthood, finally. Yay! Oh, and a death. Less yay. And all this will be coming to you in less time than it took for the current update! I hope. *gulp*

Also, if you weren't already aware, Ares, Biko, and Chance very belatedly went up for download earlier this week - you can snag them here!

awwww poor Cain! D:

AVERY IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. Excuse the caps but HE. IS. SO. CUTE. And I really really love that name for a boy :3

I know, I felt so bad for the poor boy. But he's pretty happy-go-lucky (see also: INSANE) as nothing could get him down - he's the epitome of "if at first you don't succeed, try again." ;)

I totally excuse the caps! He is worth the caps, imo. I'm glad you like that name, I was pretty excited to get a chance to use it!

Thanks for reading!
Zkatehhepburn on October 21st, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
I love that once again put it in my video came on while I was reading this. Eli is too cute I can't with him. I am trying desperately to find an up all night .gif that properly expresses my fondness over him.
set phasers to "LOVE ME": gambinokittenmittons on November 17th, 2011 09:28 pm (UTC)
Haha, it's ~meant to be. ;) Eli is definitely one of the cutest in-game toddlers I've had - the chubby cheeks and elf ears absolutely slay me!

I haven't watched Up All Night, should I? I mean, it has Will Arnett, so I'd certainly be up for trying it!

Thanks for reading! <3
Zkatehhepburn on November 18th, 2011 12:41 am (UTC)
The cute hair too.

I like it, it sort of makes me think if Gob grew up and had a family and if Veronica Cornish from Ron Burgundy had a baby and decided to raise it knocked up style.

omg your icon reminded me, have you heard camp? Also :( community.
set phasers to "LOVE ME": brittakittenmittons on November 22nd, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
That hair was totally worth actually using the EA store, which I am generally against. It is super cute though, I agree!

Haha, okay, I'm sold on that! They should hire you for marketing because that is an amazing description.

I'm actually listening to Camp right now for the first time! I, um, forgot about it until I saw it for sale in an actual store - I've never seen one of his albums in a CD store before! And I'm trying to stay positive about Community. One more season, that's all I ask. :\
Zkatehhepburn on November 22nd, 2011 03:53 am (UTC)
I love it, especially love it on little baby boys.

I think you'll like it only because we seem to like the same sort of humor, now if you like inappropriate cartoons, I highly recommend archer.

Hahah my favorite songs are obviously bonfire, you see me (ucla), heartbeat and backpackers. Me too :( I feel bad for Joel too, geez.

Now that Up All Night is airing right before P&R on Thursdays, I've actually caught it a couple of times, and I do quite like it! I haven't become hooked yet, but I'm sure if I watched it from the start, I inevitably would, of course. And I've heard nothing about good things about Archer so I'll definitely have to give that a shot as well! Gah, so many good recommendations recently, I will never catch up. -_-

Now that I've gotten in a few listens to Camp, I can say that I like it, but I kind of miss the playfulness of a lot of his previous stuff. It's weird, because he still has the same way with words, the pop culture wordplay, but it just doesn't seem as fun. idk. That's not to say I don't like it though, because I do! XD I feel bad for all of them, especially given some of the other comedies that NBC does air. Ugh.
Jessicajossoco on October 21st, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
Aw of the toddlers were so damn cute! Especially with those mmrple genes in them (excuse me if I spelled their surname wrong -_-)

I'm so jealous Pumpkin works in your game, the second I open her in CAS she crashes mine! How in the hell are your elders outliving their own children? That's so sad they have to go through their kids' deaths :(
set phasers to "LOVE ME": emmakittenmittons on November 17th, 2011 09:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you! (And don't worry, I consistently had to look up how to spell Mrmpfle for a good while. My phone's autocorrect has now learned it so I'm in business!) I'm pretty much thrilled with these toddlers, to be honest. And the ones to come. I mean, what?

Really? That's strange. I'm sorry for the fact that you can't use her though; she's adorable! I think Aria is practically immortal. I can hope, anyway.

Thanks for reading, dear!

the Cazwell gif's make their triumphant return! *brofist*

is it at all possible for your sims to birth anything less than flawless children? i don't think that it is. seriously, seriously adorable children, i am in awe.

also, the awkwardness that is Sam and Cain, omg, i am dying from the pure unadulterated cute.

i think Eli is possibly the cutest baby ever, btw. his "omgz treat!?" face is epic. (the last gif gave me nightmares, no lie >.>)

Except that I have exhausted my supply of Cazwell gifs and have no more to give. *cries* My love is all I have to give. /BSB

That means a lot coming from you of the flawless Doyle children. Thank youuuuu. Not even gonna be modest - this generation is pretty flawfree, negl.

I just . . . really wanted an excuse to use that gif. But focus on the cuteness! Chubby cheeks! Elf ears! Faux-hawk! CUTE! XD

Really belated reply, but whatever, I'm going for it anyway.

Given the way that I actually gained Tumblr followers through that whole ordeal, I think people appreciated it, lol. I may have to break them out again in the future, but I'm going to wait and hit people when they don't expect it. STEALTH ATTACK. I will bring that back to your simblr dash, so help me God.

I know you do! So do I, especially after, um, SEEING THE CHILDREN. O_o I will be updating on that more soon, especially if Chrome (which I'm trying out as a browser because Safari keeps acting up on me all of a sudden) agrees with Tumblr. Fingers crossed!

everybody loves gyrating man-butt i suppose, hahaha! <3

i feel ya on the browser thing, my Firefox has been acting weird as shit lately, but i HATE switching to a new browser, it's like riding in a new car, things are all awkward and you are afraid to touch anything >.>

My love for you and your game and your sims and your legacy is never ending. Just saying.

I'm also totally in love with January. She's so cute! And Eli! I want to eat his little face! (Sidebar, why is it that as a girl, I always want to eat things that are cute? OH RIGHT! I EAT MY FEELINGS!)

If Savanna tries to cause trouble, I hope Re kicks her ass. It must happen. Oh! Showdown!

TY BB! Honestly, I was looking for any reason to possibly use that gif. I MEAN . . IT TOTALLY FITS WITH THE STORY, I DID NOT HAVE TO FORCE IT IN THERE AT ALL. *whistles* Right.

Awwww, MY LOVE FOR ALL THINGS YOU IS NEVER ENDING! No, seriously, let's live in Andy's love-tent together for all eternity, y/y?

But really. I love you.

They're such Mrmpfle babies, it's unsurprising that you love them. ;D I'm pretty sure this is my cutest generation of toddlers, so thank you to your lovely sims-genes for that! AND I FORGOT ABOUT THE EATING OUR FEELINGS CONVERSATION! My feelings are that I also forgot that I said I would try a meatball sub. I should eat that feeling asap.
simmply_annasimmply_anna on November 18th, 2011 06:03 am (UTC)
Honestly, I forgot how flawless your gif use was this update. FUCKING TYROL MAN! AND ADAMA! BRB! NEED TO GO CRY NOW!

K. I'm back. I will totally love in Andy's love tent with you. I'll be Andy, you be April. It's perfect.

THEY ARE MRMPFLE BABIES AREN'T THEY? Damn. The Mrmpfle genes are strong. But that's not why I love them. It's cause they're perfect Crescendo/Mrmpfle mixes and bah! So cute!

Uhm yes, you should go eat that feeling immediately. Like now. Actually, I also forgot about that conversation. Ooops.
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on November 22nd, 2011 02:27 am (UTC)
I glanced back at my gifs for this update and it's like . . . BSG, P&R, Community, and a token "Ice Cream Truck" gif. Basically a summation of my life, tbh.

OKAY! Done deal. I commit myself to selling your CDs for $18 each or $40 for the pair. It's true love!

They are SO Mrmpfle, which is exactly why I love them. ;) But really, I think the fact that our sims create such gorgeous children is just proof that, were we able to, we'd also create gorgeous children. Too creepy? I kind of full-out committed to being a creep here.

I think I'm conditioned so that whenever I hear about eating feelings now, I'll be like, "Hmm, meatball sub."

I support that favoritism - Myla is pretty wonderful, in my completely biased opinion!

Yeah. :( With five elders in the house, it was bound to happen, but that doesn't make it any easier. I really need to finish that update, oops.

Thanks for reading, bb!
Alisonarisily on October 22nd, 2011 07:07 pm (UTC)

Also, still listening to Ice Cream Truck. I love that your tumblr and now the Crescendos have brought the beauty that is that...phenomenal video back into my life.

Much cuteness was had in this update, good heavens! Thought I must admit I have a soft spot for Myla already, simply because she seems like such a fierce little kid. I bet Avery and Eli will be super handsome when they grow up, though.

Aw, poor Cain. </3 Sam better man up and stop playing hard to get, or I'll...be angry. Yeah, that'll show that bunch of pixels! ...really.
set phasers to "LOVE ME": troykittenmittons on November 19th, 2011 05:40 pm (UTC)
I don't know what you're talking about. It is completely normal, non-creepy, and doesn't induce nightmares, obv. :D

I'm always happy to spread the joy that is Ice Cream Truck! I've had it stuck in my head intermittently for the last month now, I think.

Thank you, lover! If you're admitting it, I may as well: I have a complete soft spot for Myla as well. My tumblr spoilers show that Eli and Avery grow up to be very Mrmpfle-ly, therefore you are correct in saying they are super handsome. ;)

YOU SHOW HIM, BB! His pixel body is undoubtedly quaking in fear.

Brandi Belle: Kit & Emilializbeth_mairead on October 23rd, 2011 02:48 am (UTC)
The hideousness of that last gif will haunt my dreams... forever.

YAY MYLA TODDLER! I really adore that hairstyle, do you remember where you got it? And Chance's, because it's gorgeous. But so is she. I can't wait to see what Jess looks like when she grows up, because she is one adorable little toddler. What am I saying, they ALL ARE. You produce the cutest offspring, my God.

Also- ARES WILL BE MINEEEE. As soon as my game isn't such a failure.

OMG Those last pictures of Eli broke my heart. WHAT A LITTLE CUTIE, I WANT TO SQUISH HIS CHEEKS.

Also, I want Cain's eyebrows. Day-um.

NOOOOOOOOO LUCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Please post elder shots of the other Generation 1? I'm just curious to see what they look like, but I think I already asked you that. Competence, I have it.

You used a Michael K. Williams AND a Gob gif?

set phasers to "LOVE ME": benkittenmittons on November 21st, 2011 04:50 am (UTC)
You're welcome bb. XD

It's a Peggy hairstyle, though I'm not sure if it's a retexture or not. (I think it is.) But since it's Peggy, it hasn't been showing up for toddlers and children since the Pets patch. :( BOO, THAT WHORE.

Spoiler alert: the spares's children grow up gorgeous! ~shocked and awed

He will be yours. Oh yes, he will be yours. (Wayne's World is ingrained in my brain. IJAF.)

I have noted that you have a thing for sims-eyebrows. No judgment, just noting it. I feel the same way tbh.

I think you did already ask that, and I still have yet to do anything about that. I'll rectify that, um, sometime. Keep reminding me!

If you listened to my amazing recommendations, you would know that it's not just a Michael K. Williams gif, it's a Omar fucking Little gif, tyvm. ;p

P.S. DID YOU SEE THE PREVIEW FOR GOT:COK (aka GOT season 2 but that's not as much fun for me to type)? OMG OMG OMG HYPERVENTILATING. Not enough Robb, tbqh. But still. ASDFGHJKL;

I had no doubt about gorgeous spares and their spawn. It's expected when it's your sims. I found the hair! And am using it >:D LIKE A FIEND.

I'm into sim eyebrows, come at me bro.

Yes, I did see the new preview.

Now let me ask-


Just because I love him and this gif so much. Here you go.

Getting a lollipop stolen from you as a toddler would leave quite the emotional impact, I'd imagine. Not as much of an impact as that troll gif leaves, I'm sure. ;)

all up in your posts, surprising you.


how are there so many HOT SIMS in one family?

No seriously, that shit is ridic. THERE SHOULD BE A LAW AGAINST IT since cousins can't marry hmph

you know what the perk of this all is, don't you? when i finally get my game working again, i can start a new family and have SO MANY MORE CRESCENDO'S TO CHOOSE FROM.

off the record, i watched that sexxxy youtube vid you posted and i just thought you'd like to know i have a huge boner. YOU KNOW I CAN'T RESIST THE BUMS.

set phasers to "LOVE ME": ronkittenmittons on November 21st, 2011 11:37 pm (UTC)

I am surprised right now - happily surprised, of course! I MISS YOU 'ROUND THESE PARTS.

Even hotter sims in the family since Luno and Julian procreated, tbh. And even more hot since Re and Zeph procreated in the ~alternate timeline. The incest babies are really making it hard for me to accept that they don't exist in the legacy timeline. PRETTIES!


No wait, this is all:

You're welcome. :D

so you know what that means? i've totally been losing my shit over the incest going on. I SHALL HAVE MY WAY. I DEMAND BABIES! i wanna see all the babies! especially luno's!

i do too. but i think we lost ALL MY SHIT. :( so i'll just start from scratch and jam pack it full of AMAZING SHIT and pump up the jams. FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT.

I LOVE STALKERS! Well, I should cover my ass with a statement so bold as that: I love you stalking me. Much better!

YOUR WAY HAS BEEN HAD, RE/ZEPH BABIES OFFICIALLY EXIST ON MY COMPUTER. You know, for how much the Re/Zeph shipping has caught on, you were the first AND NOBODY CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU. ♥ I think Luno and Julian have a female child and a male toddler and she's maybe pregnant again. I think? I'll post a picture of their daughter on my tumblr! Soon! (Only her because I know I have at least a few pictures of her, not because I'm a bitch that gets off on being withholding. (Not to say that's not true as well though.))

Pfft I know why this update took so long. If you posted it before, you wouldn't have had that flawless Community episode you referenced one or two (three?) times. Siriusly my favorite of this season. ♥

I love Glory's body language when she saw Myla. She looks like she's recoiling. Best thing ever. I love Glory so much :') Not that i blame her from recoiling a tad, Myla exudes Evil from her pores. Poor Eli. She's still lovely - I adore Evil ladies, and redheads, so Myla = win.

I'M SO GLAD YOU KEPT JANUARY'S PURPLE HAIR TOO! Fluffy is magical, so we can pretend he turned his purple hair into his genetic color somehow.

I love Aidan's moment too, with his levitating guitar. That plays music by itself - it must be magic. Can it only speak the truth? ;)

I'm glad Jess and Annemarie aren't stuck with Gilbert's hair color TBH. He got his hair color from Michael's mother, and I always regretted not changing it to Michael's color. =/ Here I am, oversharing again. Getting back to the point, I can't wait to see the girls older! ♥♥♥

I hate the uncancelable "Accuse of Cheating" interaction. :P I'm sorry it caused such a painful looking ruckus between Aria and Liam for you. Since it's been happening so much to me, I'm not above cheating to cancel it now. Thank goodness for NRaas Industries.

Speaking of failtastic relationships - I love Chance. I hope she pins down that Ross soon, I want to see spawn. Not that it would that difficult, considering that top. Where did you get it, BTW? I love it, it's sexy.

Great update!
set phasers to "LOVE ME": brittakittenmittons on November 22nd, 2011 12:03 am (UTC)
That is totally why it took so long. I had a premonition that an upcoming episode would give me some awesome gifs and whatnot, so I decided to wait for the episode to air. Correct! Maybe I'll have another such excuse for the next update? ;)

I love Glory too! She's always been one of my most expressive sims and you know how much I appreciate that! Just like I know how much you appreciate evil redheads - that's kind of your thing, isn't it? :p

I'm sure January would be an adorable blonde but . . . PURPLE HAIR FTW!

Ha! Well, "guitar" and "sitar" are practically rhyming, so I bet his guitar is a reincarnation. Must be.

I just find it odd how they got Glory's blonde over Sunday's black, if the female side was going to be dominate. But they are gorgeous so I wouldn't change a thing! And does it count as oversharing when I love all the extra details that you tell me? ;D

Ugh, that interaction . . . That's what happened with Biko and Ivy too, which I totally did cheat to get rid of their negative moodlets. I mean, really?

Oh, she'll pin him down all right. Girl is nothing if not persistent. And they make gorgeous children, jsyk. Wait, what? *whistles* Oh, and her top is actually an outfit with the shorts - I'm pretty sure it's by Hasel at TSR (boo, hiss, I know). It's not exactly subtle but then, neither is Chance!

Thanks, love! I think I missed one of your updates, but I'm sure it's fabulous and can't wait to read it tonight! XD ♥♥♥
Jacquelinevayleen on November 26th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
If that's the way you want to roll! But I'm not gonna lie, my personal wish is that your updates happen sooner rather than later. >.>

I used to be annoyed by grandparent genes, especially if one of the parents never got a chance to shine. But I have come to accept it as part of the game - random genes, however, are another story.

It's a frustrating thing to deal with, especially when you can't really control the potential spouses when they're townies. Considering all the attention Glory got when she was in my game, I shudder to think what might have happened. Stupid reputations.

I was just recommending Hasel to one of my readers. XD I'm surprised I don't have it already, but Chance didn't appear in CAS with it. Great clothes, even though they're hosted on TSR. Lucky for us, most of them are on the booty anyway.

I haven't been updating frequently anymore, so at least you didn't have a lot to catch up on, right?? ♥
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on February 2nd, 2012 07:52 pm (UTC)
Photobucket had been crashing my internet browser whenever I'd try to write an update and between that and LJ acting up on me, it's just been difficult. :\ I'm trying out Chrome now to see if it was mainly a browser issue, so cross your fingers for quicker updates once more!

I actually love grandparent genes, because it's a fun surprise that kinda makes sense. Random genetics, ugh, no. I've been known to change the weird hair if I get it, ngl. Zeph is the only one who's been allowed to keep his random hair because at least it was blond and that made sense. Otherwise, nope. But after playing with horse genetics, I appreciate humanoid sim genetics a lot more, lol.

Haha, I forgot about all of Glory's drama in your game! That was a fun generation for me to read. ;)

And I'm back to needing to catch up on your legacy. *frets* I have it open in another tab so I'm going to try to today. Even when I'm really bad at commenting, remember that your legacy is far and away one of my favourites! ♥
