The CuriousThe Curious are such a fun family to play! I love them to bits. Unfortunately I don't have many pictures of the early stage. It doesn't help I lost a lot of them in a clumsy clean-up. Oops.
Anyway, Vidcund got abducted (duh!) and rolled wants for Lazlo to Meet Aliens Come on little brother you'll love it you know you want to!!!! . He was pregnant up his eyeballs, but no matter. Seriously Vidcund, that's just mean.
And before you ask: Nope Siree. I didn't let Lazlo be abducted.
Pascal gave birth to a girl, Tycha, and fell in love and married Nervous Subject (how unimaginative, I know). Lazlo, meanwhile, met Adrianna Bransfield the Infallibly Good Witch on a community lot, can't remember which, and instantly fell in love. So did she.
|Pascal and Tycha|
Basically, don't say anything bad about my Tycha, because I'll Grrrr! at you!
(I've since found another haircut for Pascal, similar to this one but fitting his forehead better).
|Vidcund and Stezka|
(I've since found a better moustache for Vidcund. I still need to fix his eyebrows!)
((Hey, cut me some slack, it's a work in progress!))
Pascal and Nervous both wanted a baby, so Pascal used Mad!Scientist!Skills gathered on the alien ship to impregnate Nervous. I also changed their wants from "Adopt a baby" to "Have a baby" in SimPe, 'cuz I could, and unimportant things like biology won't get in the way of my guys's aspiration points, dammit! Anyway, it's a boy:
|Pascal, Nervous and Ariu|
Nervous is a dotting father. He also loves his nieces Tycha and Stezka - especially Stezka. Seeing him interacting with the rest of the Curious household, you'd almost forget he's a grouch.
He's lost the mohawk. I tried living with it, but eventually, it had to go.
Meanwhile Lazlo got Arianna pregnant (yay ACR! They weren't trying; that's my first actual accident!); I moved them out before Arianna's baby was born, because it was just getting a bit crowded in the household. We'll catch them up later, but in the meantime:
Suck it up, Laz.
I found him a job as a journalist. I think he'd be better suited as a slacker, but that wasn't available at the time. Oh well.
|Adrianna Bransfield the Infallibly Good Witch|
I'll leave this family for now with a picture of Child!Tycha:
Next on the list...:
The BeakersI thought I'd tell you about the Singles (cuz I can't waiiiiit to!), but it makes more sense to tell you about the Beakers first, because:
|Circe and ..?|
Vidcund, when he wasn't busy trying to get his younger brother abducted, only had one woman in his mind: Circe. I didn't do anything about it until she turned up and rang the bell one morning, while Vidcund was on
I'll admit I made her selectable, allowed them guys to try for baby when unmarried, and let revenge!sex run its course. Still, what happened next was entirely their decision.
Circe barely had a crush for Vidcund (I'm really shocked they tried for baby - man, she's cold!). Once back home, she must have felt the need to hide her mischief. I kid you not, she rolled the want to gain creativity skill points - and the obvious way of doing that at the Beakers is...
|Circe practices lying.|
|The bathroom, where mothers give birth.|
|Circe and Mary|
Loki's starting to suspect something, though. Circe's been a bit different. He's the one initiating all the kisses, caresses, inappropriately-timed woohoos... He doesn't get it. And he's still craving for a baby.
|This is Loki.|
Vidcund's met aliens, too, and it's worked for him, hasn't it? He's the talk of the town. Maybe if Loki looked a little bit more like Vidcund, too...
|Yes, that's still Loki.|
Then this happens:
|More than he bargained for.|
|Loki, Mary, and Shea Johnston's backside|
|Loki and Mary|
|Doesn't give a toss.|
|Shea yells louder than Loki.|
(Gosh, that's getting a bit long, innit? And not a single "studio" picture! It's all live!)
Anyway, next morning:
The trouble with neat freaks is their obsession with the trash can.
I put a chute in the Curious's house, but I can't really do that here... it doesn't seem right! So anyway, after taking out the trash for the 100th time that day, Circe broke it.
She thinks she's a hot shot at mechanics, so she gets a chance at fixing it.
|Spoiler: it didn't work.|
|Okay, I'm a little bit concerned.|
|Circe, after her makeover.|
Circe lost a cleaning skill point, which must have hurt her pride even more than the electrocution itself. But proving she's not a coward, she immediately rolled that want:
|I'm actually impressed, Circe.|
(That weird contraption behind Mary doesn't look toddler-proof.)
And one more *pop*:
Phewww. Next time: the Singles*, who've messed up all my carefully laid plans, and don't I love them for that!
*Unless I change my mind.
