Badass Alphabetocalypse Chapter 2 Badass Twins

PowerPoint Presentation:

When we left the Badass family, they were presenting their heiress, Boudicca Badass, and their son, Fat Henry Knox Badass, to me, their Goddess and Creator. I was most pleased. Then I realized that raising twins is hard work.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I stand guard over them, all the time, but Clovis is a very attentive father, at least to his son. He's always picking him up to cuddle and play with him. Allyn seems more drawn to her daughter. Hopefully, they'll both bond with both, before too long.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: Goddess! I'm afraid there'll be another burglar! I really hate burglars! Wow. You're still on about that? It's been ages since that happened. Clovis: Burglars are bad! Promise me you'll never let that happen to my children. Can't. Sorry.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: Don't worry, Fat Henry. Daddy won't let the burglars or vampires hurt you. You've never even met a vampire. What do you have against them? Clovis: Really, Goddess? THEY SUCK BLOOD! Yeah. Kinda badass of them, isn't it? Clovis: No. Just, no.

PowerPoint Presentation:

That night, Clovis' time comes. He's in the low red aspiration, and his life can't get any shorter. Still, he does enjoy the sparkles.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Oh, my. Those clothes don't suit him, at all! Clovis: Oooh. I never noticed my hands before. They're so full of lines and crinkly skin. It's such a pretty pattern in my palm. Hey, Clovis. How would you like an axe? Clovis: What would I do with an axe? There aren't any trees around to chop down. No thwacking your enemies? OK. Just checking. Enjoy staring at your pretty palms. Clovis: Yeaaaahhhh. Pretty.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Senile Clovis is all about his babies, particularly his son, but he spends time with his daughter, as well. He'll hold them for hours, as they squirm and scream about their dirty diapers. He won't change the diapers, though.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He will, however, give the babies a bath in the sink. Awwww, autonomous parenting is so sweet!

PowerPoint Presentation:

And now he spends hours, standing in the bathroom, holding his clean daughter with a dirty diaper. She could be just a few steps away, next to my idol, getting her moods boosted, but no. He stands in the bathroom.

PowerPoint Presentation:

But at least his autonomous parenting allows Allyn to get some much-needed rest in the brand new, top-of-the-line bed. Abbey likes the bed, as well, and Allyn isn't about to scold her for it. They don't have a pet bed, because of the Athletic restrictions making it impossible to move it. My rule is, if you can't move it, and it isn't necessary, don't buy it. Abbey gets more energy from this bed, anyway.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn: Clovis! Please bring our daughter back out here! I want to put her in the crib. Thank goodness for one adult in the house who can think, and tell poor Clovis what to do.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fortunately, Clovis does have enough sense to give the baby to his wife, before he wanders off again.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And this is why, if the man doesn't have a baby actually IN HIS ARMS, that fridge stays turned to the wall. I'm going to have a fun time, micromanaging them, and timing things just right, so that he's otherwise engaged, while Allyn quickly grabs the groceries from the fridge to cook their daily meal.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Poor Mister Badass spends a LOT of time crying, and he still hasn't rolled a fulfillable want since he got married. Oh, sure, checking out his wife rolls his wants, but they always come back up the same old “buy an easel,” or “be best friends with this sim whom I can't contact until Tuesday.” It will be even worse, now.

PowerPoint Presentation:

But at least perma-jammied Allyn has learned how to make flat hamburgers, so they'll have slightly better food. I was so used to seeing my sims dressed in their everyday clothes, which they kept when they used the tent, that now seeing a sim in pajamas is a bit of a surprise. I'll get used to it, though, because unlike Clovis, Allyn is way too neat to take a sponge bath.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Tuesday, Allyn invites over all the potential spouses that she can, including a few of her own friends. She's too exhausted to do much socializing, though. However, they have a good time socializing with each other, and even giving the babies a bit of attention.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Wednesday evening, a stinky but happy Abbey returns from work with the last promotion she needs to lift the Service Pet restriction! I LOVE this dog!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: My son is stinky. I think I'll change his diaper. HOORAY! It's good to have you back, Clovis. Now you can really help raise your children, and I won't have to keep micromanaging the refrigerator. And just in time, too, because these little ones are due to grow up this evening.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Much as I love Abbey for lifting Service Pet, I am happy to see her go to a good Townie home. Allyn: You'll make sure she gets regular baths, right? Sophie: Sure. We Townies still have baths, so I'm sure Abbey will be very happy with me.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn: I can't believe our babies grow up today. Thank goodness you have your mind back, because raising twin toddlers is not something I wanted to do alone. At least we have the Smart Milk to make it easier. Clovis: You'll have to be the one to give them the Smart Milk, though, honey. I can't get my aspiration up. I don't want to make them stupid, instead.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca grows up first. Again, her mother gravitated to her, while her father zoomed in on her brother. Autonomous gender-roles, feh. Anyway, Boudicca has the exact same personality as her father, 0/7/10/8/0. A fitting heiress to the Badass legacy.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry Knox, on the other hand, grew up to be a combination of his parents' personalities. He is 0/7/10/8/5, so basically Clovis, but with a decent amount of niceness thrown in. Guess who's going to be in charge of building up the family friend count.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Neither parent has enough aspiration to give the toddlers Smart Milk, but at least Allyn rolled a want to teach Boudicca to walk, so she'll be happy enough before long. And the kids both want to walk, right away, so everyone will be riding the aspiration railroad, except for Clovis, who only seems to re-roll his fears, and his wants stay the same: unfulfillable.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And soon they are glowing with Smart Milk, and learning how to talk.

PowerPoint Presentation:

While Allyn gets some much-needed rest, Clovis stays up with the kidlets, who are gaining some valuable Charisma skill. Hopefully, they'll be good, and roll wants for more Charisma skill points, because that is something I can do for them. They've already got walking and talking down, but without a bath, they will stick to easily-changed diapers, so no potty training for these two.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Awww, these two are so cute together. Maybe it's because they're exactly alike. Boudicca even has his hair.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And this is a great way to build up the next generation's family friend count. Greet every walk-by and ask them to play with the toddlers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry: I gonna be a afwete when I gwow up. I pway tennis! Ricky: Aww, I'll be sure to watch all your matches. Actually, Fat Henry is well suited to the Athletic career, and since one of the requirements is Charisma skill, he's already got a great boost. His ten active points will help him get the required Body skill in no time, as well.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Before we know it, it's the children's birthday. They both have nine points of Charisma skill, and thanks to a last-minute diaper change, hygiene bars that are half-way full. Also, thanks to snuggles, tickles and talking, they are both high platinum.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: Goddess, it has been a long road to get here, but thanks to your good guidance, we have made it. I'm grateful to be able to help my children become as badass as they can be. Allyn: Please continue to watch over and guide our children, and help them grow in your grace. OK.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Both children: Wow! Hands!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry is happy to give out birthday hugs. Boudicca, on the other hand, complains, but will tolerate them.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Let the hand-washing orgy begin. I stand watch, boosting their hygiene as much as I can, so they can finally be decently clean for their first day of school tomorrow.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And the training begins, as well. It's only Cleaning skill, which they won't need, if all goes right in their chosen careers, but is still a good skill to gain. Clovis sits by, watching and waiting for when he is needed to repair the sinks.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Alright, Allyn. Now that the kids are children, and don't need so much of your time, you can go for that Lifetime Want. Good luck with it. You deserve to be perma-plat. Allyn: Thank you, Goddess. I appreciate the opportunity, and I hope I shall make you proud. Oh, you already have. I just hope you don't get fired before you reach your goal. I want you platinum. I want you to grow old when you're perma-plat, and have a good, long life.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: So, you're our Goddess, huh? Actually, you're just talking to my idol. You don't need to address the statue. You can speak directly to me. Boudicca: Kewl. Fat Henry: I've been up all night, washing my hands, and now I'm so sleepy. I just want to crawl into my old crib and sleeeeep...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: So, are we going to learn algebra in school? Sorry, Boudicca. The high schools are closed by the apocalypse, and until one of your children lifts the Education restriction, you will only be able to go to elementary school. Boudicca: I don't have to do algebra? Kewl!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Way to go, kids! That's how to do aspiration. Just before you go to school, you make friends with each other, for a huge happines hit for the both of you. I'm proud. Don't be like your father in that regard, OK? He has not fulfilled a want since before he married your mother. Ugh.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Mayhew: So, you're in charge of making friends for the family, so people can get their promotions, huh? Fat Henry: Yeah, 'cause my sister is mean as sin, and has a hard time making friends. It takes her, like, twice as long. Mayhew: Well, I'm glad to help with your social networking. Always happy to assist a legacy family. Fat Henry: Thanks! Hey, I'm supposed to ask. What's your job?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn: Congratulate me, Goddess. I'm a Cat Burglar! Congratulations. Just don't tell your husband. He still has hissy fits about that burglary, so long ago. I don't think he'll ever let it go. Allyn: It will be our little secret, then.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Tuesday after school, Boudicca takes advantage of the weather to earn a Creativity point. She'd like to stay out longer, but the weekly guests have arrived.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Adam: Hey, Shortstuff. Boudicca: Who you calling short? I'll have you know, I'm an inch taller than my brother. Adam: Dude, relax. Shortstuff is a term of endearment. You know, you're cute when you get spunky. Boudicca: Really? You think I'm cute? Kewl.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Goddess, I like this Kennedy Cox guy. Can I marry him, instead? You're messing with my plans. Anyway, you have no idea about chemistry, yet. You're just a kid. Boudicca: Yeah, but he's a TYCOON, Goddess! That's like some sort of anthropomorphism of a tropical storm! KEWL! What are they teaching you in that elementary school?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wednesday is a snow day, which the children spend washing their hands and cleaning sinks. Clovis just hangs around to repair the broken sinks, and waits for his lady-love to come home, so he can try again to roll a fulfillable want.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn! I'm so happy for you! Allyn: Thank you, Goddess. And I'm thrilled to be able to report that we'll always be able to afford the Criminal protection payments, thanks to my super-bonus I just got, too. Also, I made friends with Marylena Hamilton, who is also a Criminal Mastermind. Maybe she'll marry my grandson, someday. Not likely.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Thursday afternoon, Boudicca earns her second Creativity skill point. It's slow going, but by the time she's an adult, I hope to have her maxed out, if the weather cooperates, so she can quickly rise to the top of the Criminal career. Boudicca: Hehehe. I'm gonna be an Evil Overlady, just like my Mom! Kewl.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn: I like being an Evil Overlady, and this outfit is really great. But I just lost a fight to Captain Hero, along with $30,000! Maybe it's time to quit... What? No way. What kind of a Badass are you? Badasses don't quit! Allyn: But Goddess, I wasn't born a Badass. I just married in. Eh, alright. I'll forgive you just this once. But you're gonna have to work hard to earn that money back. No quitting.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Please roll a fulfillable want, Clovis. I'm really tired of watching you worry and sob and mope around in the red.

PowerPoint Presentation:

YES! At last, he finally rolls something doable. In fact, Clovis spends the next several hours in a cycle of wanting to play with his wife, appreciate her, and tell her dirty jokes. Soon, he's in the green. There is hope for him, yet.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I takes all night long, but at last, Clovis is platinum! I wonder how long it will last. Long enough to get a golden Popularity tombstone? Doubtful. But hope springs eternal. Maybe I'll let Allyn quit, after all, just so she can be aspiration fodder for Clovis.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: Oh, Great Goddess! My life is so wonderful! I thank you for all that you have done for me. Uh, you're welcome. And I'm going to open the phone lines just long enough for your wife to quit her job, so she'll always be available for you to tickle. Just keep rolling that want, OK? Clovis: Whatever you say, Great Goddess of Light and Wisdom. Sure.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis, you have a beautiful wife, who quit her job just to make you happy. Why have you stopped rolling wants for her? Clovis: I don't know. I guess I just really want to play with the dogs we used to own, you know? No. No, I don't know. I know that you need to adopt a brand new pet, not pine after the old ones. Sigh.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Thank you. Now keep that up until you die.

PowerPoint Presentation:

It's Saturday, and the kids have had their last day of school. Now, they get to spend the whole weekend Washing. Their. Frickin'. Hands! I am seriously re-considering that easy early Business lift. Fat Henry could marry Doctor Amaya, instead. I think it is time for an heirship challenge.

PowerPoint Presentation:

OK, kids. Boudicca is no longer the automatic heiress. We're going to have an heirship challenge, instead. Boudicca: You mean we have to duel for heirship? KEWL! I love fighting! Fat Henry: Duel? I don't want to duel!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Actually, I was thinking of something a bit less violent. I mean, I know you're both Badasses, and fighting is in your blood. However, you're also best friends, and I'd like to keep it that way. So, the challenge will be very simple. Leading this family requires more than brawn. It requires brains. Go play chess, and may the best Badass win. Boudicca: I'm totally gonna cheat. Whatever works. Cheating is badass. Best out of three games.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry: Goddess is so wise. This way, we get to compete, and be friendly, at the same time. I do like having friends. Boudicca: Yeah. And when I'm heiress, I'll need you as an ally. I guess I'll just have to find some neighbor to beat up, instead. Fat Henry: I know! After I befriend the neighbors, you can beat them up. That way, we're both satisfied. Boudicca: It's a deal!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Look! It's the Flying Centurion! Fat Henry: Where? I don't see him! Boudicca: Look harder. :moves piece: Don't you see him? Fat Henry: No. Well, back to the game.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Hahaha! I got all your pieces! Fat Henry: Yeah, well wait until after we grow up. I will trounce you! Once I can actually get clean enough to think. Boudicca: Hey, I'll be clean, too. Alright, kids. It's time to grow up, eat some hamburgers, and then go to bed. Tomorrow you can continue the challenge.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Awwww! The twins grew up into matching pajamas! How cute. Allyn: And they grew up well enough to get some positive aspiration, too. Good going, kids! Fat Henry: I really like my hands. These hands were made for throwing a ball around. I'll be the best Athlete in town.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca rolled Pleasure. Oh, golly. Her turn ons, however, are good. Charismatic and Creative. Clovis: And she hates vampires, as much as I do! I'm so proud! Boudicca: I can speak for myself, Dad. But, yeah, I hate vampires. Vampires SUCK! Hehe. Also, I want to have 50 Dream Dates.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry: Me, too! I like Pleasure, too, Goddess! And 50 Dream Dates would make me happy forever. GROAN. Fat Henry: And I like logical sims, with hats, but I hate black hair. OK, well good luck fulfilling your wants during an apocalypse.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry: OK, sis. Ready for round 2? Boudicca: It's on. And we're both clean and happy, so you can't complain when I beat you. Fat Henry: I can, but I won't, because I am going to win. I'm named after a military genius, after all. Boudicca: Yeah, well my namesake nearly drove out the Roman Empire from all of Britain. Fat Henry: Yeah. NEARLY. My namesake won his war.

PowerPoint Presentation:

It's Kobe the Kitty! We haven't seen her in ages! Clovis, you'd better be able to adopt her, because I WANT that cat! Clovis: I'll do my best, Goddess. But it's been so long, I'm not sure she'll even remember me. Clovis, she knows tricks. Just keep doing the tricks with her, and adopt her as soon as possible. You can do this. You MUST.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: That's two I won! There's no point in playing a third game. Oh, yeah! Who da Badass? MEEEEE! Fat Henry: Oh, man, your kids are going to be miserable and stinky. Boudicca: Misery builds character! And if I had to suffer, then they can, too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Go Clovis! I will love you FOREVER! Clovis: Yes. I am the Badass. I have adopted a kitty. Don't get sarcastic with me, now, Clovis. This is the key to making your future descendants happy and successful. Once Kobe lifts the Showbiz Pets restrictions, all children and teens will be able to train skills, even if it's not fun.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Now to get Kobe all trained up for her job in Showbiz. She already knows two of the tricks she will need, and all she needs is Roll Over. Kobe is, by far, my favorite stray EVER. She even knows to scratch the post, instead of the furniture, and use the toilet! I love her!

PowerPoint Presentation:

It's Clovis' last Tuesday, and time to invite over all the future spouses. They can't rely on his friendships, any more, and need to build up the relationships between the Future Spouse Club of Merovingia (FSCM), and the other members of the family. Each generation will have to pass the friendships on down the line. It's almost a going-away party, except we can't throw parties.

PowerPoint Presentation:

By the end of the night, Fat Henry makes friends with Doctor Amaya, so that he can introduce her to his nephew, whenever that child is born. And although it takes a bit longer, Boudicca also makes friends with Kennedy Cox, the Business Tycoon, who will be her husband when she grows up. Boudicca: You know, I was gonna marry this guy named Adam, who seemed really nice. You'd better be nice to me, too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Congratulations, Kobe, on becoming a Stunt Double! Only one more promotion to go, and the kids will be able to study the skills they need, even if it's not fun. You'll be a hero! Pleasedon'tgetabadchancecard. Pleasedon'tgetabadchancecard. Pleasedon'tgetabadchancecard.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Who da Badass? Come on, say it! Fat Henry: Gaaaack! Boudicca: What? I can't hear you. Fat Henry: You are. Let go.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Wednesday evening, it's time for a bit of family fun time, in the snow. Clovis hasn't had any fulfillable wants in a while (again!), but at least he can be sure that when he dies, he'll have excellent relationships with all his family. When they get cold, they head inside for a chess tournament. It's pretty much the only skilling the kids can do, until Showbiz Pet restrictions are lifted.

PowerPoint Presentation:

KOBE! You did it! I love you forever, you wonderful kitty, you! Now the kids can really prepare for their chosen careers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: Hey, Timothy. I'm going to die, soon, and I want to tie up some loose ends. Would you like to take my cat, Kobe? She's a Star! Timothy: Kobe Kitty! Are you kidding me? I would LOVE to take her. I'm a huge fan! Clovis: Oh, good, because we're out of cat food. Goodbye, Kobe. I adore you, and hope you'll be happy with a Townie.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Meanwhile, Boudicca and Fat Henry Knox are upstairs working out. Fat Henry will need top body skill for his athletic career, and Boudicca will need to be in top condition to become a criminal mastermind. I foresee a lot of sponge baths, but I'll spare you the pictures.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis, don't you want to spend this last afternoon with your family? Clovis: Nope. Badasses don't get sentimental. I'll just do like they did in the old days, when they sent their old folk off to die alone. I'll hang out here, making snowmen until the Grim Reaper comes for me. Wait. Who are “they” and why would you want... Nevermind. I'm here for you, old friend. Clovis: Thanks, Goddess.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Grim Reaper: CLOVIS BADASS. YOUR TIME IS UP. Clovis: I know. I'm ready, Grim. Will you take me to the great beer hall in the sky? Grim Reaper: REALLY? MOST SIMS WANT TO GO TO THE GREAT LUAU. Clovis: I'm a Badass. We go to the Never-Ending Keg Party. Grim Reaper: THAT CAN BE ARRANGED. COME ALONG.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rest in pea... Nope. Party on, Clovis Badass! And thank you. You were an excellent founder.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Seriously, people? You came out to his tombstone to say “yay” about the life insurance? Fat Henry: We're Badasses. Badasses don't get sentimental. Boudicca: I have something in my eye.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn: I miss my husband! Much more appropriate. Say your farewells, and then get back inside. It's cold out, and I don't want any sim-cicles. I almost lost Clovis that way.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry: Mmmmm, fresh food! It's just so good. Boudicca: So, Mom, now that we don't have to feed a pet, can we get rid of the fly-infested left-overs on the roof? Allyn: Not until Business, Criminal and Culinary are lifted. That emergency stock has served us well, and I won't risk it, until we are assured of having plenty of fresh food.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Skill, my minions! SKILLLLL! Boudicca: I am no one's minion, Goddess. Badasses are never minions. Fat Henry: Darn tootin'! Fine. You're not minions. You're my faithful worshippers. Boudicca: Whatevs.

PowerPoint Presentation:

It's the middle of the night and freezing outside, but the break from the snow means sandcastles and creativity training for both of you kids.

PowerPoint Presentation:

For a little while, at least. Boudicca will need high Creativity for a Criminal career, but will be lucky to get even half of what she needs before she grows into an adult next week.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Speaking of growing up, Allyn turns into an elder at the Tuesday night gathering. It's not exactly a party, but everyone is happy to share the occasion. She grows up platinum, so she should stick around for a long time. Congratulations, Allyn! Allyn: Thanks, Goddess. I feel good.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The teenage days are largely uneventful. Skilling, socializing with the odd passer-by, more skilling, and the occasional aspiration failure. Sigh. Pleasure sims. I truly do wish I could give these two what they want. Boudicca: Why couldn't Fat Henry and I just date each other? We both want dates. Fat Henry: I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that. Allyn: I am old and hard of hearing. Yep. What other skill can I max?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Three days in a row means my minio... my faithful worshippers can really get ahead with their Creativity. They have to take breaks to warm up, but at least they can see the sand. Fat Henry: I am taking no risks. I'll be prepared for any career, because I've heard about those nasty chance cards. What if I get to the next-to-last level of Athletic, and get fired? I'm going to be prepared for Culinary. Boudicca: Me, too. Next time it snows, I'm studying Cooking.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How about preparing for Education, too? You need 9 Cleaning skill points. If you're both fired from your careers... Boudicca: Uggh! Bad enough I can't go on a date, or go bowling, or eat out, or have personal electronics. You want me to study CLEANING, too? No, way! Fat Henry: Too right. Besides, I just love the feel of dirt under my fingernails.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Happy birthday, kids! It's a bright, white, Monday morning, and time for you to grow up.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sorry about that, kiddos. I really am. When you come to your senses, write it in the holy scriptures: Thou Shalt Not Be a Pleasure Sim.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Finally, Fat Henry comes to, and goes off to do his duty and take a job in the Athletic career. Thanks to his high skills, he starts as MVP. Boudicca, meanwhile, is holding off until she can invite her intended over, due to scheduling issues. She needs to be home all Tuesday afternoon.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nice hairstyle, Fat Henry. Fat Henry: Thanks, Goddess. Please bless me with success and good chance cards this day. I'll do my best, Fat Henry, but you must know that even goddesses like me can't control the chance cards. Well, we can, but that's against the rules. Good luck!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca, now that you are an adult and my official prophetess of this generation, you will spend your birthday writing those holy scriptures. Hopefully, they'll sell well, but at any rate, they will prepare you for your career in the Criminal field. Boudicca: Are you saying prophetesses are criminals? Eh, some people think so. Just avoid ticking off any reigning monarchs or prophets of powerful rival religions, OK? Boudicca: Whatevs.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Goddess, I really want a job in the Military career. Mom's already lifted it, so I'm gonna take it, until it's time to switch to Criminal. Sure, whatever it takes to get you out of your foul mood. Boudicca: Kewl. Tomorrow, I should get home just in time to call Kennedy Cox over to marry me.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Tuesday afternoon, Henry focuses on friendships for the Future Spouse Club of Merovingia. Kennedy and Amaya will be invited over in a couple of hours, as well, and the whole group will move indoors for some warmth and conversation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Kennedy! I'm so glad you can join us, at last. Welcome to the Badass family. Kennedy: Thanks, Boudicca. And it wasn't awkward, at all, waiting for my future wife to grow up. By the way, I want to quit my job as a Business Tycoon, and become a Space Pirate. Boudicca: Kewl. Just like my Dad.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Business is a good lift, because now we can sell anything we no longer need. Time to upgrade the furniture and empty out that storage area on the roof. It's easy to downsize people's full inventories now, so that's no longer a problem when new sims join the family, and we can even have sims dig for treasure, with impunity. Maybe, I'll even let them make their own toys for the next generation of children to enjoy.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Welcome to the family, Kennedy Cox. You're a Badass, now, and since you've already lifted your restriction, you have my permission to take any career you wish. But perhaps you might want to build the skills, before you go straight into the Adventure career. It's pretty challenging, after all. Anyway, tonight is for socializing. Kennedy: Yes, Goddess. I bow to your Supreme will. Oh, you I like!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Now why didn't I think of this earlier? Between Tuesday game nights at home and Kennedy's downtown business, keeping up the family friend count should be a breeze. Teens and elders with less than 10 Body skill can't go there, yet, but all the current family can work the business and make friends.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Good luck, Boudicca. I hope you enjoy your stint as a bank robber, and become a cat burglar as soon as possible. Boudicca. No kidding. I want to retire early, so my Mom will still be around to help with the kids. But I'm lifting my restriction first, if I can. No bad chance cards, please. I'll do my best, but the Criminal career is more chancy than most.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Congratulations, Allyn! Good work! Allyn: Thanks, Goddess. I've been bored, and wanted to use my time productively. If Boudicca gives me grandchildren soon enough, and she and Fat Henry lift their restrictions in time, I'll be able to help train the little ones in some of their own skills. Indeed. In fact, you can help Kennedy, too. Allyn: Well, I need to train someone. I'm bored again.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Everyone's been working so hard, and Boudicca is the only one who is friends with her husband, so they take time for a family game night, no skilling necessary.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why, hello, Clovis! It's nice to see you again. It's been quite a while since you died, and this is your first haunting. I take it the Never-Ending Keg Party is fun? Clovis: It's a blast! I almost forgot I had family back here. Hey, who's the guy in the bed? That's Kennedy, your son-in-law. I like him. Clovis: Fine. I won't thwack with my ectoplasm axe. But just for your sake, Goddess.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clovis: He better be good to my little girl, though, Goddess, or I'll find out just how effective ectoplasm axes can be on mortal flesh. Absolutely. I would expect nothing less from a Badass. Anyway, I'm glad you finally got your axe, Clovis. Clovis: It's double-sided, and it never gets dull!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Congratulate me, Goddess! I'm a Cat... SHHHH!!! I see what you did, and congratulations! But don't say it out loud. Your father's ghost is right behind you, and you know how he feels about burglars . Clovis: What? What's that? Is there a burglar robbing my family? Ooooh, I'll get him!

PowerPoint Presentation:

I think I'll leave this chapter here, while I go and calm down Clovis. He's waited so long to be able to thwack someone, and now I have to disappoint him again. Even in the afterlife, it's hard for an Apocalypse founder. Until next time, Happy Simming!
