Welcome back to the last chapter of my recent marathon play. Last time, Amalia finally beat Brennan and completed her second LTW. Quads were born and a huge party happened. The house got a renovation.
Zugzwang[German, “compulsion to move”] When a player is put at a disadvantage by having to make a move; where any legal move weakens the position. Zugzwang usually occurs in the endgame, and rarely in the middlegame.
With so much free time, Amalia starts skilling the newest toddlers.
Aqua: Briar Rose
This is as much for me as it is for you. Luckily I had to write it down for when I was doing their makeovers.
Speaking of makeovers. I found out something interesting.
Someone’s family line has fairies! Douglas does not have wings in CAS, so it must be one of his relatives?
Bram: Hey, I’m in my underwear here, pervert!
Bram: That’s better. Thanks showing the world my camo undies.
Anyway, you all voted Supernatural, so instead of waiting for the next generation, I’ll install it next time I play. It will be interesting to see just how many fairies are out in the world. I knew it was going to be a Chiffon from when I was doing makeovers in the founding generation. Although, I think only Bram has wings in this family.
He is such a cutie though!
Brick: I’m cute too!
No one said you weren’t, sourpuss.
Keely is the greatest Grandma ever.
Brick: He wouldn’t be so cute if I peed all over his room.
You are disgusting.
The toddler bathroom area is pretty small, so here is ….someone else getting potty trained.
After they are trained, Keely puts them all to bed. Sadly, not in the correct cribs, but that’s okay.
All asleep! Wooo!
The boys were outside playing until really late.
Amalia: Get off the damn computer and take care of yourself like a big boy.
Douglas: I provide for this family and I don’t take orders from you.
He says on his way to the bathroom.
I know two boys who are going to be tired in the morning.
Why the hell do my tired sims insist on going swimming? This is driving me crazy.
…and he drowns in the same damn spot that Ace did. I think the pool is cursed.
…and his son and step-son don’t even notice. In fact, no one does.
Aha, Bram did notice!
Amalia is heartbroken as well.
The reason I wasn’t too upset about Douglas was that she still had her Oh My Ghost, but when she went to turn his urn in, she went inside and popped out. The opportunity is still on her panel, but the option is not in the science center. So, now we are both upset.
The kids got their makeovers overnight. All four woke up hungry and Amalia is still at the science center threatening to blow the place up if they don’t give her Douglas back.
Tucker: Hold your horses, kids. I can only get you one at a time.
Which is interrupted by Amalia coming in and confusing Tucker who wants to wait for her to give Brax a bottle so he can give him one too.
Bram: I’m too tired to get up. I need more sleep!
Then someone should have gone to bed at a decent hour.
Tucker got all the kids fed and THEN Keely and Ariadne showed up. LOL They did grab a kid and start to teach them to walk, which makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
Amalia shows up and grabs up Brax and starts him going too.
All that’s left is learning to talk and I think one more needs to learn to potty.
Buttercup and Brax.
Briar Rose and Bron.
Amalia: If you don’t do as you’re told, I will have you swim until the reaper gets you.
Brax: I want that one!
Briar Rose: No!
By the time they learned to walk, some learned to talk and had their playtime, it was time for dinner and bed.
Amalia: I did this. I did it like a BOSS.
We locked the nursery door so she could get them all in the correct cribs.
Ariadne doesn’t do much. She goes to her new job and plays on the water slide.
Ariadne: I can leave now, please?
Ace and Brenna’s instant baby aged up. He’s so freaking adorable.
Bron and this guy had the same mouth that had to be surgically fixed. He belongs to Aric and Peach Puff.
This is their oldest, Brenda, I think.
We find out that Peach Puff and Peche Jr. are siblings, making the quads full cousins to Brenda and the Billy (I’ll figure out his name eventually). Down on the far right is Brick. Merlot is the quads’ great-grandfather and Brick’s great-great-great-grandfather.
Hence why all the kids are ugly, except Brick. He’s far enough down that the ugly was bred out.
Amalia: I have nothing to do, so I found this thing.
That thing has been around since you were a kid.
Peche Jr. called up and asked Amalia out on a date.
Amalia: I just lost my husband and I’m really not in a good place right now.
Amalia: I really think we should just be friends. I need to get back home to my kids.
Peche: They’re my kids too!
Amalia: Yes, and you can come see them anytime.
Back home, Keely is working down the line caring for the tots.
More time is spent on skills.
Which is interrupted by the need to run for the potty at the exact same time.
Even Buttercup got away from her long enough to go, but that did not deter Amalia for long. She was determined to get one more to talk.
Got this notification and went to see what was going on out of boredom.
I can’t remember her name.
Lady: I can’t reach the fire!
Then proceeds to run through the house with her butt on fire.
Other girl: I’ll put out the fire.
Girl: Oh goodie!
Other Girl: Maybe it would go better if I put on my uniform.
Girl: Yes, but you’re not aiming at my butt!
Other girl: The table is on fire. It’s more important.
Other girl: Maybe I should have put out her butt first?
She’s a Chiffon, just not sure which one. She’s cute though.
Other Girl: I finally put out your butt.
Girl: Cool, now I can go to work.
Omg. Well, that explains why she was on fire for like 4 hours without dying. LOL
Back home, nothing much was going on.
Brick: This is disgusting!
Bram: I really think you should take up novel writing.
Keely: Or you could go write one yourself and leave me to my painting.
Tucker is doing Tucker things.
Brick and Bram played tag all day! It was then I realized that it was the weekend.
I found Keely flirting with Tucker, who was all for it.
Then she got asked on a date and I said yes like a moron.
This leaves Amalia to wrangle the quads with no help, which means Briar Rose passes out waiting for her turn. Before that Amalia fed all four and got three into bed without incident, it just took forever.
Keely: Well, I’m home. How was your night?
Bah. Of course she comes home as soon as Briar gets put in her crib.
..and I am now finally out of pics from my 12 hour play session! Yes! I whittled down 523 screenshots into four chapters.
