Badass Alphabetocalypse Chapter 3 But I want to go to the keg party!:

Badass Alphabetocalypse Chapter 3 But I want to go to the keg party!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Using rule sets found here: Alphabetocalypse at Boolprop.net (http://boolprop.net/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=590) And here: Apocalypse Challenge through Bon Voyage (http://apocalypsechallenge.kaleiope.com/Bon%20Voyage%20Apocalypse.html) Using ONLY one download, found here: Mod the Sims – Job Seeking Noticeboard (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=378097) Adult Start

PowerPoint Presentation:

As you can probably tell from the nice carpool, both Boudicca and Fat Henry Knox are moving right along up their careers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca comes home early with a promotion to Smuggler, and only one more promotion to go. Fat Henry, meanwhile, has only two more promotions. Now, though, they have several days to wait before their next opportunity to work.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca, I want you to try for a baby now. Boudicca: What? But, Goddess, I only have one more promotion to go. I'd have to drive myself to my next shift, rather than take the carpool. Why risk it, already? Your mother is old and getting older. I want her to be there for her grandchildren, especially the oldest. Boudicca: Nerts! I am not looking forward to morning sickness. Kennedy: Darling, a prophetess should not question her all-powerful Goddess.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I hereby bless this union. Enjoy the lovely music.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Skill, my faithful worshippers! Skiiiiillll! Boudicca: Yeah, yeah. We're working on it. If I get fired from the Criminal career now, I'll be all set for Culinary. Fat Henry: Same here, for Criminal or Culinary. Kennedy: I just want to be a Space Pirate. Lots of skills are needed, though, and Goddess knows best. Right!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Urgle. Badasses shouldn't have morning sickness. Come on, buck up. Morning sickness builds character. Boudicca: I was born with character. BLURGLE!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Hooray! The first trimester is over. No more vomiting. That's right. Now it's exhaustion and back-ache. Plus, baby will start dancing on your bladder any time now. Boudicca: Great.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A short break in the snow is enough for Allyn to dig for treasure. She doesn't find any chests, which would provide some much-needed light in the house, but she does find a couple of maps. Someday, when travel is actually an option again, they'll be useful.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Thank Goddess I have a car, or I'd lose my job. Yes, it was a great investment, wasn't it? Good luck today, Boudicca. Boudicca: I just hope I don't pass out on the job. I can't wait to get this baby out of me.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The next night, while everyone is asleep, instead of heading off to work, Boudicca gives birth. Her screams wake up her husband, but Allyn and Fat Henry are far too badass to be disturbed by a birth. She spins and pops out her daughter, and names her Wu Zetian, then heads down to the car to drive herself to work again.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kennedy: Goddess, I present to you my daughter, Wu Zetian*, named after the only empress regnant of China. She seized control, despite her gender, and held control for many years in a land where women were held in low regard. Cheating and treachery, intrigue and plotting, and just general badassery kept her enthroned, and her wise rulership also brought prosperity and happiness to the vast lower classes, while reforming the upper classes, and also brought about the rise of Buddhism. I hope my daughter will live up to her namesake and be a worthy prophetess for you, Goddess, in her time. * http://www.badassoftheweek.com/index.cgi?id=52787309381

PowerPoint Presentation:

Congratulations, Boudicca! Well done, indeed! You have reached the top of the Criminal career, and lifted all the restrictions that go with it. No more protection payments, and no limitations on crafted objects. Boudicca: Yeah, and I did it before my brother, even though he took Athletic, first. Take THAT, alphabetical order. Well, the rule is the jobs have to be taken in order, not necessarily lifted in order, but, yeah. Take THAT!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: I love leaving the baby with Grandma, while I go off to work in my sexy outfit. So, no intentions of quitting any time soon? Boudicca: Not really. I enjoy being an Evil Overlady. It's totally Badass, plus, I get to spend my evenings beating people up, which is hella fun!

PowerPoint Presentation:

You sure about that? Boudicca: Oh, look! I'm preggers again. Thank goodness for my car. True. Just try to spend enough time at home to bond with your babies before they reach adulthood, OK? Boudicca: Whatevs. I'm off to work now.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry Knox did it! He lifted the Athletic restrictions. Now, we can move furniture around, without regard to size, and keep as much in inventory as we please. That means we can buy stuff as we need or want it, and store it when we don't. Maybe we'll get a pool table, just for fun. Speaking of inventory, I want you to start saving all your newspapers from now on, Fat Henry. Someday, those will fill a compost bin.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca enjoys the fact that she can snooze, while still being there for her baby, and all under my watchful eye. The new couch is wonderful, and can still be moved, as needed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Meanwhile, the family has shifted furniture to make space for the career rewards. Everyone wants to do their training in the same room as my idol, of course. Right now, it's body skill for Kennedy, so he can become that Space Pirate he always wanted to be. When the babies grow into children, they'll also be able to learn body skill, creativity and charisma from the Athletic, Business, and Criminal career rewards.

PowerPoint Presentation:

That evening, little Wu Zetian grows into a toddler. Her personality is 9/10/9/3/1, so although she takes after her father and grandmother in neatness, she still has the Badass mean streak. All in all, I think she will make an excellent Badass.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Every generation needs someone perma-plat to give out the Smart Milk, which is why I really want Kennedy to succeed in his career. If Wu Zetian is the heiress, she'll marry a scientist, and then we'll get a Servo, who will hopefully be perma-plat forever and ever, and then we will always be set for Smart Milk. Still, a son would mean marriage to a doctor, and some much-needed hygiene. We'll see what happens with the next baby. If he's a boy, we'll have another heirship competition.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Badass Pleasure sims (and apparently Fortune sims) don't roll a single want to interact with their child. But Boudicca still does her duty and teaches Wu Zetian how to walk and talk. I hope the next generation is better at rolling fulfillable wants. I'm tired of the aspiration failures. So far, though, she's having a happy toddlerhood.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry: So, if this next baby's a boy, there will be an heirship challenge. What do you think Goddess will choose for the competition? Boudicca: I don't know, but I bought a blocks set for Wu Zetian to practice with, in case it's chess again. Fat Henry: Cheater. That's giving her an unfair advantage. Boudicca: Only if it's chess.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kennedy: Goddess, I have all the skills I need for the Adventurer career, and I have also received a large bonus from my work at the Business career. I believe it is time to change jobs now. Do I have your blessing? Yes, of course. Good luck, and be careful with the chance cards. Kennedy: Thank you, Goddess. You are all that is good and wise. Awww, shucks!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Kennedyyyy! Now is not the time to be talking about recycling! Your child is about to be born!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Oh, Great Goddess, behold my son, Selim the Grim, named after a powerful 16th-century Turkish Sultan* who more than doubled the size of his empire, wiping out his enemies without mercy, while encouraging the intellectual growth of the Ottoman Empire, and beginning a 400-year run of major Turkish power in the world. * http://www.badassoftheweek.com/index.cgi?id=46114175341

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn and Kennedy: Hail, Great Goddess, Bringer of Light and Restorer of Merovingia. May your Will ever be done! Goopy: Errr, what are you guys doing? Hush, Goopy! I'm enjoying this, so don't interrupt. Goopy: Guys? Shucks, I forgot. He's not a Badass, so he can't hear me.

PowerPoint Presentation:

So, here's the plan. Wu Zetian was rumored to have poisoned both her own mother and her son, which requires a certain amount of Cooking skill to understand *“all the nuances of the fine art of poisoning and other forms of assassination.” Selim the Grim was really big into guns, strangulation and intellectual pursuits. Therefore, Wu Zetian will lift Culinary and Selim the Grim will lift Education. For the heirship, I will anoint whoever reaches adulthood with a personality closest to my founder, Clovis. 0/7/10/8/0. *See Chapter 1

PowerPoint Presentation:

For this week's party, Kennedy is doing the heavy lifting with his “Bust a Move” and the new pool table. If Selim lifts Education, then the next four sims can lift Artist, Natural Science, Paranormal, and then Show Business, which will allow either the Diva or Mr. Big to join the Badass family, lifting Slacker immediately. Brian Vijayakar will marry the first heiress, to lift Science, and Amaya Tomyoy (whom Fat Henry will invite as soon as he gets home from work) will marry the first heir to lift Medical. Marisa Bendett will stay on the back burner until after Law is lifted, so she can lift Law Enforcement, by marrying the next available heir. This, then, is the revised membership of the Future Spouse Club of Merovingia (FSCM).

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Why did I have to change her diaper? WHYYYY??? Poopy diapers build character. Boudicca: But, I just want to have fuuuun! You have a pool table. Why don't you roll a want to play pool? Sheesh. Pleasure sims.

PowerPoint Presentation:

With his career well in hand, Kennedy takes time between shifts to start making toys for his little ones to enjoy. So far, it's just toy bricks, but he hopes to be able to make kites, eventually.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I'm not sure that's the best toy to give your kids, Kennedy. Kennedy: Well, if you say so, Goddess, of course I will obey. I just thought that it was in keeping with the Badass creed. You know what? You're right. Carry on.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Thursday night, Wu Zetian grows into a child, quite happily. Wu Zetian: Hey, Goddess! I can see and hear you, now! And I just loooove your idol. It's so YOU. Hey, I have hands, and they are dirty. I'm gonna spend the rest of my birthday washing them, OK? Knock yourself out, kid.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Selim the Grim grows into a cute toddler whose nose is definitely not the Stabby Death Nose of his father.

PowerPoint Presentation:

In fact Wu Zetian has the same nose. I think I shall dub this “The Badass Nose,” since it clearly came from the Badass line.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Yep. Definitely “The Badass Nose.” Hopefully, that red hair will show up again down the line, as well.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I should note, here, that I am the most fair Goddess, ever, because the challenge is based on changing the personalities of these two kids to most closely match my founder, and they have the exact same personality . They are both 9/10/9/3/1. Mean as sin, appropriate for their family, but otherwise, they have their work cut out for them. The deadline will be their aging up to adulthood, so it's perfectly equitable.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn enjoys being the grandma who teaches all the toddlers. She even rolls wants for them, even though it makes no difference to her, since she is perma-plat. No one else wants to teach the kid to walk, though, so it works out.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian heads off to her first day of school feeling fine. She had a good meal, a good night's rest, and even feels pretty clean, thanks to a hand-washing marathon in front of my idol. It's Friday, so she'll have the whole weekend ahead of her, after her day at school, and she's feeling optimistic.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Meanwhile, Fat Henry spends some time at Badass Grocery and Games. It's not really a great money-maker, and in fact, Kennedy is on the verge of just dropping the grocery section, and adding more games, but at least they have finally earned one business rank.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fat Henry is concerned, however, about the reviewer. Something there has really turned his head.

PowerPoint Presentation:

REALLY turned his head. He leaves without giving a verdict, good or bad, and the decision is made – less food and more fun, since no one can seem to make up their mind between the two options. Instead, the family will buy another lot strictly for selling groceries, and keep the neighborhood sims from getting so confused.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian comes home with a B+ grade, after only one day of school, and proceeds to share her new-found wisdom with her little brother. Wu Zetian: “Logically, we should work together. Merovingia is big enough for both of us, so if we divide it evenly, we can both enjoy power. I'll take the northern half, and you can have the southern half.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca takes some time out from encouraging activity to teach Wu Zetian the fine art of lying. Boudicca: Now, remember, your body will give you away, if you don't maintain proper control of it. Breathe deeply, and calmly, and keep control.

PowerPoint Presentation:

No, Wu Zetian, Alvin is not going to be the grandfather of your grandchildren. There are two choices for spouse for the next generation. Amaya, the doctor, to bring back baths, and Brian, the scientist, to bring back lights and electronics. Wu Zetian: Who's supposed to marry which one? Amaya for your brother, or Brian for you. There are no other options.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian, shouldn't you be skilling, or becoming more active or more sloppy, or something? Wu Zetian: It's Sunday, and I'm tired of all that. Besides, I've come out here to have some peace and quiet and do some serious thinking. The future of the Badass legacy is in my hands. Only if you're the heiress. Go become more sloppy!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca, your daughter is supposed to be spending this time becoming more sloppy, and all you can do is jump on the couch. Boudicca: Sorry, Goddess, but I've been in the red for so long, and now I finally have a fulfillable want. I need to get out of aspiration failure. She can get sloppy later. But the heirship challenge!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian, what are you thinking? Wu Zetian: I'm thinking that I don't like this whole heirship challenge thing. You may be our Goddess, but as to all-knowing and all-wise, I think my Dad and Grandma may have just put you on a pedestal you don't deserve. Can we rethink this, please? Sorry, there must be an heirship challenge. I have spoken!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Selim the Grim grew up well, thanks to last-minute snuggles and tickles from his mother. Thank goodness for fulfillable wants! And now, he can get started on remolding himself to be more like his grandfather. I am awfully fond of Clovis, you know.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Allyn: OK, sweetie, listen closely, because I only have about a day left, and I'm the only one who can bring your outgoing level down to the proper level. 10 outgoing is great, except when you have to change for an heirship challenge. You want to tone it down to 7, OK? Selim the Grim: Yes, Grandma.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I'm proud of you, Allyn! You managed to get both children to level 7 outgoing. I'm glad that Boudicca didn't wait to get pregnant, because we're cutting it really close, here. Allyn: I'll be glad to join my husband at the Never-Ending Keg Party. Ahh, well, you're perma-plat, so it's the Great Luau for you. Allen: Wut.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Congratulations, Kennedy! You are now the official Smart-Milk maker for the next generation! And if you don't accidentally die off too soon, you'll be headed for the Great Luau in the Sky. Kennedy: About that. Allyn said that we'll be separated from our spouses, who will spend eternity getting sloshed and hitting on other ghosts. We need to come up with some plan. I think visits can be arranged. And the Heavenly Beer only gives you a good buzz, so you're never really sloshed enough to hit on the wrong person. There's no adultery in Heaven. Kennedy: In that case, Goddess, you are as wise as you are wonderful, and I look forward to the Luau.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Trying to keep the kids' hygiene up, I've installed beds in the living room, with my idol. They sleep through just about anything, after all. Even when Boudicca and Fat Henry get into a fight about which one ought to be the next in line for heirship. Boudicca: Hahaha! You're weak! It's all that niceness. Grouchy sims are better Badasses! My daughter will win. Fat Henry: Your son is just as grouchy, so your argument doesn't hold water. Kennedy: Sigh. All this fighting amongst ourselves is counter-productive. We should be presenting a united family front, Goddess.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Speaking of a united family front... Wu Zetian: I want a bath. Selim the Grim: Me, too. Wu Zetian: I don't want to be sloppy. Selim the Grim: Me, neither.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Selim: Bubbles! Bubbles are fun! Wu: I know! I never want to lose them! Selim: But what can we do? The Goddess has spoken. Wu: Well, I say we choose for ourselves. One of us will change to be just like Grampa, and the other one can stay tidy.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu: Hahaha! Paper covers rock! I win! That means you have to be the heir and have stinky kids, and I get to stay neat and tidy all my life! Selim: Flergle! Wu: Watch your mouth, or I'll wash it out with soap. Selim: Shows what you know! I like soap!

PowerPoint Presentation:

This is mutiny! Mutiny in the ranks! … How very Badass of you. I approve. Very well, Selim the Grim will be heir for this generation. But for her cunning, Wu Zetian will be known as prophetess. Listen to her, Selim. She knows how to be Badass and get things done.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Happy Snow Day! Use the time to get clean, and to encourage personality shifts. Wu Zetian: I want to be as neat as possible, Daddy! Kennedy: I can help with that. And I can help you be serious, too, if you want. Wu Zetian: Yeah! Let Selim be sloppy and playful. You'd better be a Knowlege sim, Wu. If you roll Pleasure, I will never forgive you, especially with this new personality of yours.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And so that whole day is spent encouraging the kids to have their ideal personalities. Selim becomes like Clovis and Boudicca, and Wu becomes even more neat and serious. After all, she'll be an aunt someday, and may want to encourage those traits in her niece or nephew, so it pays to be extreme.

PowerPoint Presentation:

After Wu Zetian is encouraged as much as possible in her chosen personality, she asks Fat Henry Knox to teach her more about lying. She needs to be creative for a culinary career, after all.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Grim Reaper: ALLYN BADASS, YOUR TIME HAS COME. WELCOME TO THE GREAT LUAU. Allyn: Goddess promised that I could visit my husband at the Never-Ending Keg Party. Grim Reaper: THAT CAN BE ARRANGED. YOU MAY VISIT AS OFTEN AND AS LONG AS YOU LIKE, BUT YOU MUST BEGIN AT THE LUAU. IT'S PROCEDURE.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: Why did all the snow have to melt? Now we all have dust in our eyes! Farewell, Allyn, and enjoy both the Luau and the Keg Party, to your heart's content. You have earned it.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The next day is spent skilling, as no one feels much like encouraging anything, at all. Wu Zetian studies cooking and Selim studies Cleaning, although since he is now quite sloppy, it goes slowly. I should have left that one for last. Ah, well.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When Tuesday rolls around, however, they all have to buck up and be sociable. Selim meets his future bride, although it's too cold to stay out long enough to get really friendly with her. Next week, they'll have more time together.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian: Mom! Daddy! Guess what! I got an A+ at school today! Kennedy: That's wonderful, dear, and perfect timing, too, because today is your last day of school. Tonight you become a teenager, and Merovingia has no high school. Wu Zetian: Yeah, but I can still learn lots of stuff at home.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Are you ready to grow up, Wu Zetian? Wu Zetian: And how! I got a platinum mood, thanks to my grades, and I want to grow up while I'm still feeling good. Then grow up, with my blessing. And please don't be a Pleasure sim, like your mother and uncle!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian: Whoohoo! I'm a Knowlege sim, and I want to be an Evil Overlady, just like my mother and grandmother before me. How very fitting. I'm sure you'll make a splendid Evil Overlady. Just be sure to lift the Culinary restrictions, first. And be very careful with the chance cards. Wu Zetian: Pffft! Careful is for losers. And criminals take risks every day.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When she's not skilling, she's cleaning. Who knew housework could make a sim so happy? She still spends a lot of time washing her hands, of course, but is much more efficient at it, and so she's able to keep her mood up pretty well. Focusing on learning new skills keeps her aspiration high, as well. But when she misses college, I foresee another visit from the sim-psychologist.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Enjoy it while you can, kiddo. I know education is important to you, so you really need to focus on lifting the Education restriction, and bringing high school and university back to Merovingia.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Everyone helps out, and with her family's help, Wu Zetian maxes out her creativity, which is vital to the Culinary career. With her logic already maxed, now she only needs cooking.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca, meanwhile, focuses on turning Selim into a little black-haired clone of Clovis and herself. Soon, he matches their personalities, as befits an heir of the Badass family.

PowerPoint Presentation:

But what's this? Things are going well, aren't they? The children are learning their skills, and their personalities are exactly as we want them to be. Boudicca: There's all this snow! It's in my eyes! Sure it's not dust? Boudicca: It's dusty snow! That's what! Also, I want to go on a date!

PowerPoint Presentation:

The children don't like sharing beds, anymore, so with the addition of two singles, the bedroom is all set for a full house of eight sims.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Friday is a snow day, and they spend it skilling, of course. With his mother's help, Selim gets all the charisma he'll ever need.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Saturday, he maxes out creativity, while his sister works on cooking.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Sunday night, it's time for Selim to grow up. He's nowhere near platinum, but at least he's green, and with no fulfillable wants, he's not waiting. Boudicca is sad, because her baby is growing up, although she never really cared about all that baby and toddler stuff.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And Selim grows up well enough. He rolls Family, and his lifetime wish is to have six grandchildren. Right. Like that's really gonna happen. Looks like Wu Zetian is the only one of the next generation with a hope of becoming perma-plat. Hopefully we'll get lucky with Amaya.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Now that the kids have grown into efficient hand-washers (or in Selim's case – sponge bather), they can really get down and dirty and build up their body skill. After all, without level 10, they can't go to the new community lots, right?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Selim: Oh, yeah. I am a lean, mean fighting machine! Where's a gun? My namesake brought guns to his battles. Yeah, and your grandfather wanted an axe. No dice. Selim: Well, I'll just beat up my enemies the old fashioned way, then. After all, I can take on anyone. Except maybe a vampire. Hehehe.

PowerPoint Presentation:

This is what happens when early-generation apocalypse pleasure sims age up.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Also this. I am so proud of my next generation teens for choosing something reasonably doable. Oh, sure, Selim's not likey to get his six grandkids, but he's probably going to get a lot of fulfillable wants, anyway. And if the chance cards are good, Wu Zetian will be perma-plat.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Speaking of perma-plat, this is the way to age up, folks! Kennedy is due for a long life, and may live to see his grandchildren become teens, at least. Meanwhile, Boudicca and Fat Henry will be lucky to live long enough to see Selim grow into an adult.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Tuesday afternoon is FSCM meeting, and Selim is finally able to get things going with Amaya. By the time she leaves, she is not only warm in body, but in spirit, as the two are now friends.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian, meanwhile, enjoys the warmth of her first kiss. It's a one-sided relationship, but at least Alvin is open to her love. Perhaps next week he'll reciprocate. After all, just because she's a spare doesn't mean she can't enjoy some good lovin'.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kennedy buys another business. This time, it's a gym, to encourage the locals to get fit, and allow for some fun socialization. He's not even going to charge admission, since the family has over $300,000 now. It's more a service to the community, and a place for sims to hang out and meet each other.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The family all go down to the gym, and play with the visitors there, hoping to make new friends. If they can't use the phones except on Tuesdays, they need to do something to build up their friendship network. After all, with the older generation dying off, their friend count has dwindled, and the kids will need at least a dozen to boost their careers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kennedy finally figures out the gold badge for making toys, and creates four different colored water wigglers, that he hopes someday his descendants will be able to use. It will surely take at least four generations to get there, though.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The next week is pretty boring, really, with everyone finishing up the last of their skills. The elders don't really need the skills, but it's something to do to fill the time while the young ones build the skills they actually need for their careers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boudicca: I know it may not seem like it, but a good golf game is vital to a criminal career. You see, a lot of business deals, both above-board and below, are made on the golf course. Wu Zetian: And if they don't agree to my offer, I'll just whack them with the club. Boudicca: That's right!

PowerPoint Presentation:

And dear (well, I like him, anyways) Clovis shows up to pay his heiress a visit. Boudicca: Aaah! Daddy! Clovis: Hah! I scared you. Boudicca: Don't be ridiculous. I just stepped on a pin, that's all. So good to see you, Daddy!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Selim: I wanna get married and have kids! You will, when you grow up. Selim: I wanna have a family NOWWWW!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Way to go Wu Zetian! You have learned every skill! Now, if only that had been your lifetime wish, you'd be perma-plat and ready for anything. Ah, well. Wu Zetian: I'm still ready for anything. I am going to knock out Culinary within a week, and then become an Evil Overlady. I certainly hope so. Good luck!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian: Yaaay! I grew up well!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian: Waaah! I didn't go to college. Huh. Knowlege sims. Next generation, I will have them all go to college, whether they want it, or not. If Selim fails me, I will smite him, and make Wu Zetian my heiress, after all.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I'm glad to see you've pulled yourself together, Wu Zetian. You started out as a prep cook in the morning, got a promotion, took your car to work for an evening shift and got another promotion, and you have only two more promotions left to go, with no pesky time off to wait for it.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian: One promotion away, and I haven't even had a chance card, yet. I'm just that good.

PowerPoint Presentation:

That night, however, Boudicca comes home from work, and dies right there on the sidewalk by the mailbox and trash can. Grim Reaper: BOUDICCA BADASS, YOUR TIME IS UP. PLEASE GO THAT WAY, TO THE ESCALATOR, WHICH WILL BRING YOU TO THE NEVER-ENDING KEG PARTY. Boudicca: Sounds great! I've never had a beer before.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu Zetian: I'm on my way to hopefully my last shift as a chef. I only wish my Mom could still be alive long enough to see me lift Culinary. I hope your uncle will survive long enough to see you lift Culinary. But at least your father should still be there. Good luck, Wu Zetian.

PowerPoint Presentation:

With no way to call his friends over, and no more skilling to do (he also maxed all seven skills, but he didn't even care about it and got no aspiration points, at all), Selim the Grim enjoys the last days of his teendom with the toys his father made. Selim: I'm flying this kite for you, Mom. Because when I see it floating in the sky, it reminds me of you, and the kegger there.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Grim Reaper: FAT HENRY KNOX, TIME FOR YOU TO JOIN YOUR SISTER AND FATHER AT THE NEVER-ENDING KEG PARTY IN THE SKY. Fat Henry: But, I don't drink alcohol. Do you have juice? Grim Reaper: WE HAVE EVERY DRINK KNOWN TO MAN, AND SEVERAL UNKNOWN. Fat Henry: Alright, then. Do you have peanuts? Or chips? Grim Reaper: IT'S A KEG PARTY. WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF SNACKS. ALL OF THEM. COME ALONG NOW.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kennedy: Well, at least we got to say goodbye, this time. I wish I had known to greet my wife. Or told her to quit her job, instead of working until she died. Selim: She never wanted to quit, Dad. You know she loved beating up her enemies. Kennedy: Yes, she died happy. And now Fat Henry is happy, too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Speaking of moving on, it's time for Selim to grow up.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Selim: Waaaaah! I want a faaaaamilllyyyyy! Dude. You're an adult, now. As soon as Tuesday rolls around, you can invite Amaya over and get married. So pull yourself together, will you? This is NOT fitting behavior for a Badass, let alone the Badass heir. Selim: Sniffff! OK, Goddess. Is it Tuesday, yet? Sigh.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dang, I just missed the picture! Congratulations, though, Wu Zetian! You made it! Culinary is lifted, and now you are free to join the Criminal career, and become an Evil Overlady. I'm so proud of you! Wu Zetian: I am truly a worthy prophetess. And if I had wanted marriage and children, I would have been a worthy heiress. Because everything I do is great. And you're so humble, too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Well, that was an eventful day. Whew! Now that generation 3 are all grown up, it will soon be time to welcome in generation 4. Hopefully, they'll have an easier time of it than their forebears. Until next time, Happy Simming!
