9. Pink Sunshine
Any excuse for Fuzzbox. And pink gen gave me a good excuse to use these fab T-shirts The Mare’s Nest made a few months ago. The Bagpuss ones get a bit of usage here too :).
Anyway, on with business. And there is a lot of business to be getting on with.
‘Hey Louis. I know I’m carrying some other bloke’s kid, but he was nowhere near as… attractive as you, so want to move in and make more babies with me?’
Putty. In. Our. Hands.
Unfortunately, Louis had a girlfriend. A pregnant girlfriend. But we soon dealt with that inconvenience.
And with the excavation of Pink Windmill from the womb…
…it was time for… *resists pervy joke based on the word pink*
Louis got married in. Look at these two in profile. ❤
Hmm. I’m not sure how Pink Windmill is going to turn out. Not to worry, I’m sure Louis won’t let me down.
These two really adore each other. They’re always rolling romantic wants. It’s nice 🙂
Oh look, a purple sim with a purple moodlet… OK, this colour thing is being stretched now…
I have no idea what all the relatives are over for, but I do know this… I love a basket.
…and Prawn Cocktail
With the boys safely in their cribs, it was time to get one more pink bun in the oven.
Pink Windmill’s imaginary friend was called Pink Panther…
…but he kept glitching so a number of resets and reboots later, he ended up being called Pink Panther3.
PW herself had to grow up again at one point and I completely forgot the original hair and outfit she had.
Anyway, the boys soon grew up too. Prawn Cocktail’s IF is called Pink Glove.
Rock is promising. Here he is with his IF Pink Pound.
HMV’s is called Pink Lemonade.
‘Four toddlers and I’m pregnant again? I hate you, Rad’.
‘Seriously. I HATE you’.
No you don’t.
Look at that silhouette.
Whilst her mum went into labour, Pink Windmill had the courtesy to grow up. And look ruddy miserable about it.
Stop. Baby time!
6 kids. Truly truly truly outrageous.
I think I’ve broken Archbishop.
More birthdays! HMV…
…Cartland and IF Pink Elephant…
(Blimey could this legacy scream ‘Rad’s formative years were the 1980s’ any more?!)
…and Jem with IF LilyThePink
I think I’ve got six very promising kids here 😀
We don’t have six IF potions, so Archbishop’s been trying to work on that as well as cope with all the nappy changes, feeds and snuggles.
This is a very, very familiar happening chez Knight.
Birthdays might feel like they roll around quickly in a speed legacy, but with all these whiny babies (and several crashes to desktop) it felt like these teen birthdays were a long time coming.
Pink Windmill has turned out pretty well, if a little too like her mother.
Would you believe I’ve been playing TS3 since it came out and this is the first time I’ve had this glitch?
I suspect the boys are trying to get in early for the heir race.
Once they’d sorted themselves out, we have Prawn Cocktail…
HMV (nice, but an Archbishop clone)…
…and Rock (an interesting mix of the two).
It’s hard to tell how Cartland will turn out.
Jem’s a daddy clone though.
We had a gnome death and a baby gnome. This is more than the Daye gnomes have ever done.
I moved Louis out once there were no longer any toddlers in the house so we could get some IFs living. Prawn Cocktail was the first who’d made good enough friends with their IF.
Pink Glove is super-cute.
Townie watch. Umm.
When I discovered that Rock also had the option, I realised I must have more than 8 sims per household enabled.
So it was on with the IF conversions. I love my gay cowboy Pink Pound…
…and my cutie pie Pink Elephant…
…even if life in this family baffles her somewhat.
Neither HMV nor Jem are friendly enough with their IFs yet – but at least HMV’s helping with one of the (approximately) eightybillion repair jobs in this house, which is more than the repairpeople seem to bother with.
Pink Windmill grew into a YA (over-emotional, great kisser, evil, light sleeper, friendly, wants to be a super-surgeon) and though she’s nice and ugly, I have confidence there are others in this generation who can surpass her.
So I converted Pink Panther3 (absent-minded, unflirty, good, artistic, coward. LTW: Rock Star). They moved out, and soon enough were married with a baby on the way.
Oh, Rock. I know you’re totally checking out Pink Pound’s arse, but you’re still high on the list for heir choice, so don’t pin your hopes on it.
Not a chance in this legacy, but I ❤ ❤ ❤ magicians.
Oooh, not bad.
A bunch of sims, standing about lagging the place up? Must be birthday time again.
Jem is mighty fine. But she doesn’t have much of Archbishop in her, and I do like my heirs to be a genetic mix.
Pink Elephant is too cute for words.
HMV (neurotic, couch potato, dramatic, artistic, snob, LTW: Fashion phenomenon) working the classic Knight pose.
Come on fella, let’s get your imaginary friend sorted out so you can move.
I think Pink Lemonade (adventurous, can’t stand art, perfectionist, hydrophobic, ambitious. LTW: Seasoned Traveller) is stunning.
These two are married with a baby on the way as well now.
Pink Glove (rebellious, good, family-oriented, frugal, computer whiz. LTW: Master Mixologist) is still single – for shame, Twinbrook.
Prawn Cocktail (brave, excitable, inappropriate, clumsy, artistic. LTW: Firefighter Super-Hero), on the other hand, is a player. Every girl in town appears to have sampled his, er, flavour.
Oh Rock (good, over-emotional, handy, virtuoso, party animal – master of arts). What am I to do with you?
Can I deny you a lifetime of cute with Pink Pound (loner, technophobe, perceptive, easily impressed, bookworm – Illustrious Author) and force you to shack up with an ugly girl?
Of course not.
Story Progression tells me the new Mr and Mr Knight are very happy 🙂
That means, Cartland, my boy, it’s all down to you.
I think he got the most interesting mix of both parents’ genetics, and the ugliest townies are all girls, so I’m happy.
Twin profile picspam!
You’d think with only Archbishop and the three teens left in the house that things would be easy. But no.
The kids get sent to school every morning, but they dilly dally so much they end up late. Then there’s a whole bunch of lag when Archbishop has to go through the rigmarole of telling them off. This takes so long that they miss school and she misses work. She ended up getting fired because of this.
I hate you Generations.
On the rare occasion the kids did make it to school, we had the lag you get in a town full of kids when no-one will enter the rabbit hole.
Still, it makes for good townie stalking time.
One of the problems was that everyone in town stopped ageing for a long time and only a reset everything with Master Controller sorted things out. The purple-haired girl is Sandy Blugren-Wozny, Louis’ daughter from his ex. She’s the elder sister of the twins and triplets, technically.
Zombie kid isn’t bad.
You wore that deliberately just to get in this chapter, didn’t you?
This girl is from an epic family of four sisters.
The Kyoti-Givens family are formed from some genetic experiments in my simbin that Story Progression and/or Master Controller cooked up.
The red hair seems to be the only bit they got from the Kyotis.
Any one of them would be a good match for Cartland.
Their mum wouldn’t be a bad catch either.
Whilst Cartland started grooming the youngest one…
…her older sisters were very industrious.
I love this family.
Archbishop is still working on getting us one final potion.
I don’t know why, though. LilythePink is horrible to Jem. She does something mean every time Jem tries to be friendly.
Pink Elephant had a mardy strop or whatever it is the game calls those things and wanted to beat someone up.
Poor townie kid. She got grounded for this, if it’s any consolation.
Cartland organised a sleepover. The too-pretty townie kids did their homework on the lawn like squares.
At least Jem got into the spirit.
Sheena, the littlest sister, grew up. And she grew up in a Fuzzbox t-shirt. I so picked the right one.
Unfortunately she turned teen as our teens turned YA.
If I hadn’t already done the double heir thing with blue gen, I so would have done it this time.
Jem’s a good loner, light sleeper who can’t stand art yet has a photographer’s eye and for reasons I can’t fathom, wants to be a super-surgeon.
Cartland’s also got a photographer’s eye, is an athletic, grumpy, charismatic heavy sleeper and fancies being a master mixologist, which we might actually try and achieve.
I love them both so much.
And I love Pink Elephant (vegetarian, party animal, athletic, computer whiz, vehicle enthusiast – super-popular).
LilythePink (clumsy, inappropriate, neat, artistic, over-emotional – rock star) is a big fat meanie though.
We got Sheena over to induct her into our family in our traditionally creepy way, by ageing her up prematurely and spamming her until she gave in.
Archbishop finally made a potion, so we did let Lily take it.
This was the hardest work imaginary friendship ever.
Jem couldn’t get away from her fast enough when they moved out, marrying a blue skinned townie girl almost straight away. They’ve become the first gay couple in my hood to get pregnant – if only they’d been a few generations earlier so I could use their genetics…
Bathroom flirting is a-go-go!
‘Am I a player yet?’ Given she rushed off home after this, I’d say no.
Now the town is ageing, Archbishop finally got old. She was a YA until Pink Windmill aged into one. Oops. She might make some more potions before she pops her clogs but the huge house makeover betwen purple and pink gens and Archbishop being fired has skinted us and we only have 20K in the bank. Those potions cost 4.5K a pop. Ouch.
The stabby stabby bubble is nothing to do with Cartland. Prawn Cocktail’s been working his way through the sisters (as well as half the town) and clearly Sheena’s found out. Now THAT brother is a player.
Cartland proposed. And was rejected. Twice.
I feel this is a pattern familiar to the members of the Knight family.
And let’s face it, we’ve never let failed proposals halt our pursuit of genetic excellence. Sheena (absent-minded, couch potato, brave, frugal, good – Firefighter Superhero) moved in.
Look at them in profile. This is going to be fun.
Pink bed, pink hearts, pink funtime equals one thing… the final generation is on its way. Join us next time to see just how hideous white generation can be!
