7. Indigo here we go-o
Last time we saw the Knights, they didn’t have Generations. Now they do, so expect EP spam.
Da Be Dee and Kari went into labour at pretty much the same time.
Oh yay, memories! *Sarcastic thumbs-up*
This is Biro Ink.
And this little man, performing the rather creepy new animation for babies in buggies, is M&S Jeans.
(For non-Brits, the denim range at Marks and Spencer is called Indigo)
Facebook and Kari went straight to work on conceiving another Indigo baby.
Da Ba Dee went straight to work on making another relative (Jennifer) count towards her LTW total.
No sooner was Kari’s oven “bunned” than Facebook was out seducing the elderly.
No, this is not Facebook’s baby photo sneaking back in, this is M&S Jeans pre-makeover.
Here he is in all his glory. The two boys got “special toys” in the post.
M&S Jeans’ is called Indigo Girl
Biro Ink’s is called Indigo Blind
When they sing to their toys, it is the cutest thing EVER.
Oh Facebook, I know you want to complete your LTW, and I know this town likes to keep things familiar, but your mother is NOT a suitable candidate.
Also of note: Limeade is trying a stink juice potion. It made her smell. Oh, and Jody died. *Shrugs*.
“I don’t want to get married”.
Er, good. Because you weren’t actually going to.
I was hoping to snag this guy’s genes for my legacy.
“Aw, but I was hoping to marry into pink gen”
Neither of us had any such luck – he died later that day.
I sent Da Ba Dee and Facebook to the military base to see if they could get lucky.
Biro Ink’s dad was there. Whatshisname: ‘Oh yeah, I tapped that’.
I invited er, this other bloke. I figured they could both have a pop on him.
He genuinely is the ugliest man who isn’t a close relative. My town, it disappoints. Still – he managed to father another indigo baby for me.
Facebook “My turn now? I am ever so sexy, yaknow”
“Knocked myself up a Knight. Gonna go home now, kthnxbai”
The best laid plans…
I sent him to the gym instead where he picked up Da Ba Dee’s cousiny cast-offs
Looks very uncomfortable, but who cares? ANOTHER LTW IN THE BAG!
Da Ba Dee decided to go for the same approach…
For those who are counting, this is her fifth conquest.
Apparently the game wasn’t counting, though, as her LTW didn’t fulfil.
Jennifer: “Check me out, I scored with two members of my own family. That makes me a LEGEND as far as Twinbrook is concerned”.
We interrupt Blue Gen to come back to the focus of this chapter – more indigo kidlets! This is Starfish.
Notice how Kari isn’t in blue maternity gear? This is because I found her so incredibly boring I couldn’t be bothered watching anything she did.
The boys had their birthdays. Here’s Biro Ink…
And M&S Jeans
“Why is the bathroom broken AGAIN?”
I don’t know, but I suspect it’ll be your father as usual.
Biro Ink was so wrapped up in Indigo Blind that he didn’t notice the car. Which then drove right through him.
M&S Jeans played at having a tea party with Indigo Girl. I know it’s unfair because Starfish is only a baby and child #4 isn’t even here yet, but he’s so my favourite.
SO MUCH CUTE.
EVEN MORE CUTE.
I kicked Kari out because she bored me… and then my best babysitter, Limeade, died.
Da Ba Dee finally got her LTW with her sixth conquest…
…who happens to be sister Blu Tack’s husband. This family is so classy.
The boys are always in trouble at school and having to stand in the corner. I hate that punishment is compulsory.
I know what will cheer him up…
Wheee! Someone’s come out to play!
Indigo Blind’s turn…
…just in time for the boys to age up!
What’s up, Indigo Blind?
“You won’t like this…”
Aw, look. This is adorable. Now you see her…
…now you don’t. Hee.
Starfish is pretty darn ugly though 🙂
I ❤ U.
Look! He’s cuddling thin air!
LOL jk not rly.
This will never get old.
In other news, I’m apparently 6 years old.
Well done on removing the baby before standing in the buggy, Da Ba Dee.
This is Belinda.
So this one might take some explaining. Thinking of indigo things is HARD. But Belinda on How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? (The first BBC Andrew Lloyd Webber reality/talent show thing) wore indigo. If any of you understand this reference, well done on being as sad as me.
*Doodles love hearts all over her blog*
“I don’t have a special toy. Does that mean you don’t love me?”
Look at that face. How could I not love you, Starfish?
I have no idea why the maid is the one to age up the baby.
Oh, that’s right, because Da Ba Dee thought having a go at her nephew for lacklustre grades was more important.
Belinda has a special friend too, Indigo Child.
M&S Jeans had a day of feeling naughty so he went and egged a house…
…which happened to belong to Grotbags, the only surviving member of green gen.
Starfish grew up again. Niiiice.
I love that there’s more for children to do in Generations.
Whooop! Ghost story!
Whoop! Bunk beds!
The boys bonded over their love of their imaginary friends.
Love imaginary friends so much.
Why Belinda, you grew up very well.
“Oh Indigo Child, when you grow up I will marry you”.
I sent Starfish away to boarding school – the expensive one (Smuggworths?).
Facebook wanted to go on a date, so I let him… with Kari. She’s expecting another man’s child.
So this is odd. This little kid appeared on the edge of the lot and I hovered over them, and it’s apparently Indigo Child!
“That’s my prince!”
“I love my prince”
Yeah, the date went well…
I want my imaginary friends to become real so the family have been fiercely brewing up potions in the hope we’ll get the magic one. It took me ages to realise they build like skills, so I only really needed one sim to work at it.
Once I did discover this, it became Da Ba Dee’s job to be chained to the chemistry table.
I love all the new bits you get with Generations, even if I don’t think that overall it adds as much to the game as the other EPs did.
Indigo Child came out to play…
…and then my game crashed and I had to replay Belinda’s childhood…
Dig for rainbow gems like your life depends on it boy!
Generation 7 and we finally get a Mysterious Mr Gnome. He’s called Kaleidoscope.
Oh, hello there teen Belinda! What a fine chin you have (but why must the rest of your face be so pretty?). Why so grumpy?
“Thanks to your lousy game playing, I don’t get my prince”.
Whoops. I forgot to make her play with Indigo Child second time round.
The boys all aged up as well (though Starfish is still at boarding school so you’ll have to wait to see how deliciously ugly he is). Biro Ink was apparently born into the wrong family.
His traits are: Flirty, Neurotic, Photographer’s Eye, Loves the Outdoors and Heavy Sleeper.
His LTW is also Master Romancer, as we can get a point out of him for it before he goes. He began with Indigo Blind…
…in the tent.
M&S Jeans aged up to be a fine figure of a man. His traits: No sense of humour, virtuoso, loner, hot-headed, easily impressed. LTW: Living in the Lap of Luxury.
For some reason, he got to graduate and Biro Ink didn’t. I guess he must have done his homework more or skipped school less.
I’ve been disappointed by the lack of ugly in the town lately, so, remembering the gem that was Mozzy Weller in Dayes, I ordered pizza. The pizza guy was boringly face one. In other news, Belinda still resents me.
Da Ba Dee finally learned to make the potions!
Indigo Girl went first.
She is adorable (yes, I did tweak her in Master controller to make her indigo).
Her traits: Good sense of humour, disciplined, neurotic, genius, nurturing (oooh!) and she wants to be a Martial Arts Master.
Indigo Blind’s turn…
She is a loner, technophobe, friendly, clumsy eccentric who wants to do the stylist LTW.
Biro Ink got his second conquest…
…with his cousin’s imaginary friend.
Given that imaginary friends do the stride of pride ALL THE TIME, it’s hard to tell if this is a post woo-hoo response or just her normal toy-self walk.
We ordered a mixologist. We don’t have a bar.
This family are such pervs.
Da Ba Dee actually watched as her son notched up his third conquest. *Shudder*.
Townie watch! This one is Blu Tack’s son.
I think this is Julio’s daughter (Slimer’s granddaughter). She has some potential I guess.
This one belongs to… someone in blue gen.
Townies disappoint me.
These two though, are too adorable for words.
I’ll just ignore her little indiscretion with Biro Ink.
They do present me with a problem though. Indigo Girl is clearly too cute to be an uglacy spouse, and I can’t bear to split them up, so I am placing all my hopes on Starfish when he comes back from boarding school. His portrait photo tells me he should come good but it’s hard to tell unless I see him up close.
Biro Ink got his fourth notch in the city hall…
…and his fifth in the military base. Another point, with no messing.
I got him to propose to Indigo Blind. For some reason, this helped her career progression.
They then ordered stag and hen dos… at the same time, at home, with mostly the same guests.
While the townies were getting raucous, the camera zoomed…
…onto my returning hero. Private school is rubbish, I didn’t get to choose his LTW or traits and though it said he’d get a head start in certain careers, such as medicine, I signed him up only to discover he got to level 2 straight away, and that’s all. He didn’t even get any skills.
Traits: Heavy Sleeper, Over-Emotional, Artistic, Ambitious, Snob. LTW: Stylist (really??).
Look at him though. So precious. The hair the game aged him into is perfect.
Meanwhile, back at the party…
…everyone ignored the strippers…
…everything was in chaos…
…and Belinda continued to be unimpressed.
The bride and groom to-be snuck off for some fun times, and I’m pretty sure there were chimes.
I moved them out and they promptly split up!
Oh well, Indigo Blind will be living on in my entry for Boolprop’s Slice of Life competition, so watch Boolprop or Rad’s Sims Stuff for her progress.
At the party, this townie caught my eye.
However, when I sent Starfish to make his move and got a closer look, I was worried about her age, so I used Master Controller to check. One day from ageing!
So I then cheated and moved her (Ginger) in without delay.
Well, if your town was as deficient in ugly townies (especially women) you’d do the same.
Facebook handily died to make room for Ginger to have twins. With her age, we need multiples, fast.
In case you were wondering, yes she is distantly related to the Knights. Obviously. I forget how, I think she’s Funshine’s grand-daughter or something. She is an artistic, virtuoso, good, kleptomaniac snob who wants to live in the lap of luxury.
“Can I finally leave this hell-hole?”
You certainly can. Your chin had so much potential but look how disappointed you have made me.
Belinda can’t stand art, is excitable, a mooch, a heavy sleeper and disciplined. I can’t remember her LTW (oops).
Hopefully now we can have triplets. Join us next time when we hit a purple patch with violet generation!
LTWs +5 (YAY!)
LTH +1 (Dark)
Skills +1 (Cricket Ball: Martial Arts)
Other things I am giving myself a point for out of desperation +1 (Marcy topping the chess rankings)
