‘Wicked witch of the west… in her nightie!’
Why hello there! Lets get Aria on the treadmill! Just wait until she gets of the crapper…
Damn it. Ah well. You have to admit though, her expression is hilarious.
Lets close up on that…
‘I will return – and then you’re gonna burn.’
Hmm, what’s that, Aria? I’m gonna burn? Yeah. I hope you can hear the sarcasm in my voice. Famous last face though, I love it.
Is gonna suck for the rest of the guys though, I really should’ve killed Symphy earlier on, >_>
‘Even death bowed down to her. Now there’s some respect for ya.’
Aww – Everyone looks pretty darn sad. George is all *sigh* – even Barrett gets the vibes, and he’s all locked up in the brig. Dang – that’s the second time as well, he is a really bad thief. Or just really unfit. I think I have him set to work out. I don’t remember, since these pictures were taken like… last week or something. I went to a music course – which rocked by the way. We got to compose an’ stuff.
Plus it’s really nice to go some place where everyone’s as insane as you are.
I so totally loved my composition – When the lights go out. Which is by the way now the name of the next chapter. Surprisingly early decision, that.
‘Mother and Daughter, dead as the other.’
By the way, I can’t remember what the epitaph read. Something like ‘The beginning’ or whatever. I can’t be arsed to load up the sims and check. Cause it’s like – EFFORT.
Edited in… I happened to be on the game and looked at the Epitah. It reads
‘Sweet Aria, Drawn to a Close.’
There ya go.
‘Must… Use… Computer!’
Cause I want this one to actually reach her LTW so I don’t feel like a failure, I get Coda on the computer because her writing needs to be brought up. I start her on a fiction novel, because I’m cool. Perhaps I should’ve done a drama though… ah well. It’s called ‘Eden: Broken Things’
Coda gets $9 for every few chapters she submits to the publisher. Well, you gotta start somewhere.
‘As he watched his body die away, he closed his eyes. He didn’t want to look any more.’
This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper. TS Eliot said that. He’s certainly right on this part. George just… faded away. At least he’ll be with Aria forever now. Ooh – Ghost sex. And no-one will stop them. Except maybe an exorcist. Or in this case the Repo man.
The whole death part was a drag though, cause Grimmy appeared in the wrong room. An he’s all ‘WTF I can’t do my job now? There’s a WALL in the way’ Yeah, there’s such thing as a door, you know, Grim. Try using one?
I ended up having to use moveobjects to get him to finish off.
‘Snoozes are theys who loozes.’
Seems everything was a bit much for ol’ Barrett here…
The odd thing is, he got into bed, and then got out again – to promptly collapse on the floor. Later though, he said that he didn’t collapse. He was just walking, and floor kept getting closer and closer and closer.
Say it with me, folks. Epic Fail.
Okay, he didn’t say that. My sister said that to my mum when she was in the hospital and drunk. The annoying thing is she didn’t suffer. Nope, no hangover. She got a hydration drip.
Kyrie grows up and is still bald. I’ll have to sort that out though. Haha she’s all ‘Hey! I’m bigger! *Looks down* nope, nothing’s changed there though.’
A Dhia – it looks as if Sera’s trying to act like one of those models or big celebrities. Ina photoshoot. See the lack of a shirt? And the sexy pout? Ahhh Sera’s gonna be getting a lot of male attention. Tehehe.
‘Nice bench, can I stroke it?’
Meanwhile, Barrett goes and indulges his more Kleptomanic nature. I’d intended on trying to get him to steal the tragic clown grave – Senny suggested it a while back. It wasn’t there. I may return him to the graveyard at one point. And I’ve just realised, Barrett has no chance of getting his LTW. He’s like – 3 days from becoming an elder. Ah well. Doesn’t stop him from stealing though.
‘The lights hypnotises Barrett. It’s the defence mechanism.’
He then goes to some bitch’s house and is mesmerised by a nearby light. He must have it. So he taketh it. We now have an extra light and bench. Tee Hee.
‘I may be dead and all, but I’m still your sister!’
Indeed you are, Symphony. Shame on you, Aika!
Like we care.
The twins encountered each other as they were doing… whatever they do. For Symphy? Being ghostly. For Aika? Clearing up after a little night time snack. I almost expected Symphy to go ‘booger booger!’ at Aika, and I think she contemplated it, but she just didn’t have it in her. Aika meanwhile, just goes about ignoring her sister. I don’t think Symphy liked this. Just look at her expression.
“That’s my guitar” The woman thought bitterly.’
I was bored, and Aika had a wish to get tips, so I sent her to the park to play the guitar. It didn’t really help that Aika was ready to start using the bushes as a pillow.
At first, no one comes at all, but then we get a few people who come to watch but they. Don’t. Tip. You would think they’d be a bit more useful and actually put money in the case.
So, sad and forgotten, Aika packs up her case and heads home home to sleep. But wait! There’s some money in here! 11 Simoleons, to be precise.
You know.. ever since I’ve gotten back from that music course, everything’s been so dull and boring. I wanted to start writing something musical, but I couldn’t think of anything. I may do something image/poetry related at one point… I’ve actually thought of something now… hippie dee…
‘I’m secretly frying your brain cells.’
Well, where’s your hair-dryer, noh? Pon and Zi reference, sorry.
Anyways… Barrett tries to make himself useful and sits down to try and teach Kyrie to talk. The key word being ‘try’. Kyrie seems more interested in his Pyjama top.
That’s real healthy, Kyrie.
This is interrupted though, by Sera’s wailing and hunger, so, as Barrett rises to tend to her, Kyrie amuses herself with the peg box.
‘Mama, I canna stand!’
I feel sorry for Coda, she hasn’t left home in ages. I’ll send her out to a movie or something. Bistro…
Anyway, Kyrie is being educated further – being taught to walk.
Happily fed and cleansed, Sera is amusing herself with the mini-Xylophone. I have… what, 4 days to stuff as much knowledge into these little girls heads as I can, before they grow up. That’s slightly daunting really, as you have to keep the teachers happy, too…
‘Having no molecular substance could sure be annoying sometimes.’
As you can see, Aria goes on her first walkabout since she died. It would appear that her first conquest was to possess the upstairs toilet. Which is a little odd, that toilet was literally the last thing she used before she snuffed it. Coincidence? Most likely.
‘Challenge: Do 10 hops on a moving treadmill.’
Barrett woke up halfway through the night, fully rested. Couldn’t think of something for him to do, so I made him do something that might help him, noh? Exercise is always good. Especially if you’re a criminal.
‘Can you say ‘Every Cloud has a silver lining?’”
Seeing as Barrett wants to rest, and Coda wants to feel clean, Aika decides to be a good Aunt and take over on the spoon feeding of knowledge. I do so love Aika, she is so lovely. As Sera learns about the sexy weatherman on BBSim News, Kyrie hits out a smoky jazz number. Sure.
‘Is that…. a baby?’
No, Coda. It’s a rock. Get your eyes checked.
So – Coda was going nuts from being inside all the time so I sent her outside. (Imagine the theme to ‘Come Outside’ coming on)
To the sim version of Stonehenge, so she can collect stuff. She got a lot of rocks, a butterfly, and a ladybird. She was also rather tired, so after that she went home.
‘Do you like my new feather boa, sweetie? It’s made from Magic Fireflies.’
So – Coda is now an adult. Yay?
Other news – Sera can talk. Kyrie can almost walk. Wow – lets go put that in the Guinness book of ‘almost’. Yay – we can have Coke and Chocolate Cheesecake!
‘Maybe I should try thinking it to life…’
Coda finishes her first book, and she will receive in total, 286 simoleons worth of Royalty. Not much, I know. But it’s a start. We all need to start somewhere.
News – Kyrie can walk.
Now, since I’m going to go away in the morning, I think I’ll end this one here. I had been planning to leave it when the todds grew up, but… what you gonna do?
So, come for some ‘I haven’t the foggiest what’ll happen’ fun next time in Chapter Fifteen: When the Lights go Out.
