Welcome back to our founding generation of a Differences in the Family Tree challenge. Last time, Ariadne moved to Riverview, married a man for his money, did a bit of gardening, and then popped out kids.
Another challenge done.
Time has mellowed Ariadne. She was almost looking forward to another baby. Her garden was going beautifully and she had a bit more free time.
Ariadne was so happy to have one less toddler under foot. She excitedly bought his birthday cake.
Then of course that dumbass Michael was taking a shit, so he was late to the cake and aged up at the potty.
Ariadne’s anger over the birthday screw up pleased Michael.
Michael celebrates by stealing candy from Eric.
Michael: Scream, boy, it makes me happy.
The twins finally get haircuts so we can tell them apart.
Ariadne goes into labor for the third time.
Ariadne: What the hell am I going to do with triplets??!
Evil Michael might not be so evil after all.
Unfortunately, the burglar stole the couch, ran to his car and drove off before Michael had even talked to the dispatcher.
Ariadne: It’s the twins’ birthday, let’s celebrate!
Ariadne: I don’t understand why you have to go on tour. I can’t deal with my garden and six kids alone!
Jon: It’s not a tour, babe. It’s just a one night show in Sunset Valley. I’ll be home tomorrow night.
In all actuality, Jon was gearing up for a career change. He had actually been spending his night reading fishing books and going fishing.
Jon brought home some playground toys for the kids.
Ariadne was quite happy of late. She was even flirting with Jon. A very rare occurrence.
Of course, that led to her current situation.
Jon came clean about what he was actually doing. Ariadne took it pretty well. She only required that he give her the fish for fertilizing her garden, something he agreed to very quickly.
Ariadne was almost enjoying her kids and the kids they brought home after school. They played all afternoon and left her alone to her garden. She repaid them by making a salad for dinner that was fresh from outside.
The triplets had their birthday.
and the next night, Michael’s birthday went forgotten.
Jon was sorry that he missed his oldest son’s birthday, but he had a really good reason for it. All of his years of seedy nightclubs and nights on the road, had finally paid off.
Things quiet down for a while, but soon enough, another baby is ready to make an appearance.
Jon: Hey, mother. You forgot something.
Ariadne: What did I forget?
They forgot to pay the bills. She took the burglar alarm and left.
Eric: Homework is garbage!
*the real fucking reason they have so many goddamn kids*
Eric: I spy a naked neighbor. WOOO! Take it off, baby!
Someone should tell the neighbors to buy curtains.
The newest twins go forgotten for almost a week.
and another fire.
Ariadne: BURN BABY BURN!
Abigail cake #2
Meanwhile, in the nursery.
Life is a series of birthdays.
The garden has not been seen in weeks.
This is the first time anyone has talked to Michael since his toddler birthday.
Michael: You neglect me my whole life and when you want to chat, this is what you need to know?
This leads to a horribly homophobic tirade by Jon. Michael is devastated for coming out now and vows that his dad will forever be his enemy.
Michael runs away and finds himself at his classmates house.
Michael likes this guy because he’s not only gay, but he’s a berry. The only berry in his year at school. He’s so different from everyone else. His parents are amazing and even offer to let him sleep on the couch for the night.
The two end up really getting to know each other and were shocked by how much they had in common.
It wasn’t long before Michael started to have feelings other than friendship for Grape.
The second he leaned in for his first kiss, the cops showed up.
This is what Michael is most looking forward too.
Michael was automatically heir at birth since he rolled Evil. No other child born rolled a bad trait to compete with him.
