The Neener-Nanner Apocalypse:

The Neener-Nanner Apocalypse Chapter 13 I am following the rules for all expansion packs, stuff packs, and store stuff, and keeping track of scoring. However, this is not an official tournament game, so the scoring is just for my own satisfaction.

Slide2:

Xias: Is your daughter going to just leave us out here to freeze? “Freeze? Is it cold? The cold doesn't bother me.” Xias: Well, it bothers me! Why won't she let us in? “Because she knows I'll lick all the plates. I did the same thing with her father. It is how this family operates. Live with it.”

Slide3:

Aurora: Right, kids! It's six a.m., and I'm going to Sixam. Please pull up the ladder behind me, and have a good day at school. If it's open. Xias: So... cold... Aurora: Be sure to thaw Xias out, if he freezes!

Slide4:

Aurora: I found a ruby while on my adventure. I wonder if I can transmute it into something more valuable, while I wait for the warp core to cool down enough to fly again. Hmm, a small increase in value. If I do it again and again, maybe I can get a larger increase in value. But I must conserve some energy for my next trip. I hope I get something better next time.

Slide5:

Aurora: So, Mama, any advice on raising children? You know, in case I have any. “Potty train them early. Poke the fire and play the music box and give them plenty of snuggles and bottles. Teach them to walk and talk and set them loose on the world with a bunch of books. Oh, and change their dirty diapers before their screeches burst your eardrums.”

Slide6:

Aurora: Oh, my head! That trip to the moon was practially useless. I brought back a piece of cheese, worth $5. Big whoop. I tried transmuting the ruby again. It barely increased the value at all, and now my head is just splitting. I have to wait another five hours for the ship, and by then it will be past curfew. What if I don't make it? Oh, no!

Slide7:

Solar: You don't have three alien siblings for nothing, Aurora. You rest your head, and I'll take a crack at it. Oh, look! The ruby changed to a citrine! If we all take turns transmuting, maybe we can really get enough, in time. Aurora: Thanks, Solar! You're the best.

Slide8:

Venus: I'll help, too, Aurora. Vulcan: I'LL HELP, TOO! I'M ONLY TRYING TO WRITE A FOURTH BEST-SELLER, NOT A FIFTH ONE, AND MAX MY WRITING! I PROMISE NOT TO STEAL YOUR ALIEN TECH CLEAR! JUST LET ME FINISH THIS CHAPTER, AND I'LL TRANSMUTE THE GEM, TOO! Aurora: Thanks, guys! I really appreciate your help.

Slide9:

Vulcan: OR NOT! IT SEEMS THERE IS A LIMIT TO HOW MANY TIMES A GEM CAN BE TRANSMUTED! LOOKS LIKE THE BEST WE CAN DO NOW IS CUT IT. YOU NEED TO MAKE MORE TRIPS AND GET SOME MORE VALUABLE ITEMS, SIS! Aurora: Flergle!

Slide10:

Cosmo: Well, here's some good news for you. I got a promotion! I'm a Level 2 magician. Now maybe I can perform for tips here at the house, rather than just practicing the same two tricks over and over and over and over and over and over and … All: WE GET THE IDEA! Cosmo: Yeah. I've been doing this all day long. I got kind of stuck.

Slide11:

Cosmo: I just got called with an opportunity to audition for a gig at the park! That will be a big help! I still can't perform for tips there, but if I can land this gig, I'll have something permanent to help boost my career. Of course, that means I will have to watch my schedule, after all.

Slide12:

Solar: So, welcome to the household, and thanks for the loan of the spaceship. Got any tips for where is the best place to get the really good loot? We're sort of on a deadline here. Xias: Heck if I remember. Solar: Ummm, OK. Well, hey, you got two stars of celebrity points from befriending Aurora. How about spreading them around?

Slide13:

Solar: I'll be your friend, and I'll send the others down to be your friend, and soon, we'll all have gone up a star level, I hope. I'm already five stars! Hooray! Xias: Will this have any bearing on my future? Solar: Not really, but you'll get a better gift, and that's always nice, even if it's in the black hole.

Slide14:

Xias: I have one fishing skill point. Let me tell you all about it. Author's Note: Well, what do you know? Autonomous training! Now, if only some of the other sims would autonomously listen. But they're all busy upstairs. Anyway, the ones who really need fishing have what they need to get on with. Still, the possibility of autonomous training really pleases me. I'll have to keep an eye out for Jade doing some of this, and see what she's training, and who needs to run down to hear it.

Slide15:

Aurora: I brought back a mysterious gnome from my adventure! It looks just like the ones in the yard, but it's from an asteroid belt, so that makes it pretty mysterious, to me. I'm naming it Space Babe. You know, I have gone to the moon, the asteroid belt, and to Sixam, and I think I like the asteroid belt the best. I'll go back there again this afternoon.

Slide16:

Cosmo: I probably won't get many tips, unless people come from the park across the street or the paparazzi tips me. But it's so much easier than manually practicing the same few spells over and over. When I've built up my skill a bit, I'll audition for that gig opportunity I got. I only have one chance, and I don't want to blow it.

Slide17:

Aurora: Well, what do you know, Cosmo? Someone actually did come from the park across the street. You're getting experience and a little bit of money. You should do this every day, from morning till bedtime. Cosmo: Whatever gets me my lift as quickly as possible.

Slide18:

Venus: It's my last day as a teen, and a snow day! Hooray! I'm going to spend it getting my charisma up some more, but not all the way up. I still haven't chosen a lifetime wish, but I think when I grow up, I'll choose “Golden Tongue, Golden Fingers,” because I have high charisma, and maxed guitar, already. Solar: Sounds like a plan. I don't know when I'll manage mine. I have the 5 stars, but $100,000? In one week? Maybe I flubbed my choice.

Slide19:

Venus: It will take a while, I'm sure, but with six of us working, we'll probably manage it, even with the mob payments each week. When we start getting higher levels, and raking in the promotion bonuses, we'll get it. Keep your chin up. Solar: Thanks, Venus. I will.

Slide20:

B-one: Welcome to our conclave, Space Babe. OK, here's the deal. The NeenerNanners that brought us to life also caused this apocalypse that the sims are trying to lift. If they manage, we'll become normal gnome statues, and we don't want that, so if you have any ideas on how to foil the sims' plans for success, please let us know. Space Babe: Well, I'll have to think about that. I mean, I'm just not sure what we can actually do to stop them.

Slide21:

B-one: Unfortunately, most of the things we tried have failed miserably. Now and then we are able to delay them a bit, but we're running out of ideas. Any fresh thoughts from you would be most welcome. B-three: Or tell us about your travels. That works, too, because I. Am. So. Bored. Space Babe: OK, story time it is.

Slide22:

Astral: I am a Useless Contraption Manipulator. Now I need to add handiness to my study routine. It's a good thing I like to learn so much, although I still haven't topped that third skill. I've spread myself out, instead. It will come, though. Right now, topping my career is more important than gaining my lifetime want.

Slide23:

Aurora: Well, that trip wasn't quite so lucrative. I brought home a large Angrite rock, worth $145. Not so much, and I can't transmute it into anything bigger. I hope for better tomorrow.

Slide24:

Cosmo: I am now a level 3 magician, and being able to work at home really does help. I think I'll take one more day to improve my skills, and then I'll go and audition for that gig at the park.

Slide25:

Solar: I am Overseer of the Dead. I need one more promotion before I join the Science career, and start fishing and gardening. But I have the next two days off. Well, it gives me time to prep my gardening and handiness skills, doesn't it? No problem!

Slide26:

Cosmo: Since I made my lifetime want so early, I have enough points to buy an honorary degree and an extra trait. I wanted to get Natural Born Performer, but it clashes with Clumsy, so I took Loves the Outdoors, instead, to give me a good mood boost whenver I'm performing. Although, I think I'll try to save up some points for a Midlife Crisis, and drop the Clumsy in favor of Natural Born Performer. With a good mood, it shouldn't take too long.

Slide27:

Cosmo: And now it's birthday time! The teens are growing up, at last! No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks!

Slide28:

Vulcan: I CHOSE HANDY AS MY FIFTH TRAIT, BECAUSE A LOT OF JOBS REQUIRE HANDINESS SKILL, AND IT'S USEFUL! MAYBE. I'LL PROBABLY GET A JOB THAT DOESN'T NEED THE SKILL, BUT I CAN STILL BE HANDY AROUND THE HOUSE, WITH NEW THINGS BEING UNLOCKED BY SCIENCE AND ALL.

Slide29:

Venus: I chose Brave for my fifth trait. Although we haven't had a fire or a burglar yet, it's good to have a second person who can deal with emergencies. If we ever get Culinary lifted, we might start having kitchen fires, after all.

Slide30:

Venus: Well, Solar, it looks like you'll have a better chance of getting your lifetime want, after all. My job is Fortune Teller, and since Cosmo is already going for the Paranormal lift, I have no choice but to go for Criminal. Once I lift that, our fortune will stack up pretty quickly. Aurora: I was so hoping for Military! Venus: Maybe you or Vulcan will get that.

Slide31:

Vulcan: I MEAN TO WORK ON MY WRITING SKILL TONIGHT, AND I'LL CHECK THE NEWSPAPER TOMORROW MORNING! I AM SO CLOSE TO MY LIFETIME WANT! Aurora: That's fine. I wish you luck.

Slide32:

“You know, Obgu, I used to have a rule that only slobs could move in.” Xias: I'm not Obgu. And I'm not a slob. This place is disgusting and only desperation could induce me to eat the spoiled veggie rolls they toss down to us. “Really, Eshu? That's too bad.” Xias: I'm going to die here, aren't I? Send my bones to Sixam.

Slide33:

Venus: Actually, it looks like I won't be a Fortune Teller after all. Vulcan had the right idea. They sprung graduation on us early! It's today, and since I couldn't call the boss until tomorrow, we're not friends. I have to quit my job! Who knows what I'll need to learn next. Solar: Well, I'm not so happy, but Aurora will be pleased you have another chance at Military.

Slide34:

Aurora: I brought home another ruby. I need everyone to help with the transmutations. And wish me better luck this afternoon. Astral: I do hope you make it! I want a good long life, and I know Venus has her heart set on a transporter pad. Aurora: I want a collection helper. There are so many good things with this clear, it just HAS to happen!

Slide35:

Cosmo: Behold in amazement as The Great Cosmonut unleashes his magic in your general dirction. Xias: I'm going elsewhere. That stuff's scary. Cosmo: This is a limited engagement. That is to say, I'll be stopping early, once it's time for graduation. So enjoy the show while you can, folks! Come on over!

Slide36:

Venus: It's time to go now. I promise I'll take care of transmuting that ruby after graduation. Aurora: I'm really nervous about getting enough money. I got lucky with the gnome, but there is still over $1000 left to earn, in only a few more days!

Slide37:

Venus: Since I'm “Most Likely to be a Rock Star,” I think I'll block everybody at the top of the ladder, and just graduate right here. With highest honors, of course.

Slide38:

Vulcan: WELL, I AM GOING TO TAKE MY CELEBRITY LIMO, AND GO TO THE CITY SERVICES CENTER, WITH THE REST OF THE FAMILY! I WANT THE WHOLE SPECIAL CEREMONY, BECAUSE I EARNED IT!

Slide39:

Vulcan: I REALLY DID EARN IT! I AM VALEDICTORIAN AND “MOST LIKELY TO BE ELECTROCUTED”! HOORAY! Aurora: We're all so proud of you both! Now, let's get home and get to work. There's still so much to do.

Slide40:

Aurora: I am going to miss that spaceship when the week is out. It is the fastest thing, EVAR! Venus: I need to quit my job, find a new one, and then hit the books for whatever skill I'll need. Aurora: And I need to go on another space adventure. Fingers crossed for another expensive gnome!

Slide41:

Venus: OK, this time it's Journalism, which is a much better lift, if I do say so myself. And I don't work until Friday, which means on Thursday I can call the boss all I want. Vulcan: I STILL NEED TO MAX MY WRITING, SO I WILL TAKE TOMORROW'S JOB!

Slide42:

Aurora: This time, I got a large Unusual Rodiekceous, worth $284. I only need $1000 more. How are things going with that ruby?

Slide43:

Venus: All good so far, but we're not likely to break $100, I'm afraid. Better luck next time, Aurora.

Slide44:

Cosmo: I'm almost to level 4 in my career. Tomorrow, I'll go and fulfill that opportunity. I should be a shoe-in for that gig, especially with some more practice tonight.

Slide45:

Astral: It's a full moon tonight, and I know just how to get the elders in the house. I'll call them in for a nice fresh dinner. Xias won't eat the spoiled food, so he's certainly ready for a meal, and it's a good day for a celebration, anyway. Aurora: OK, but hide all the leftover plates afterward, because Mama will lick them, even if she isn't hungry. And we lure them downstairs again tomorrow morning.

Slide46:

Cosmo: I am a Conjurer! Level 4, and surely good enough to nail that gig opportunity at the performance park. Tomorrow morning, I'll go and audition, and hopefully the gig will be during daylight hours. Performing at home may not be as fast as getting the gigs, but it has done nicely for me so far. Hopefully, we'll be able to send the tombstones to the graveyard before too much longer. No more worries about routeblocking or ghosts.

Slide47:

Venus: It's my first day at work. Wish me luck! My first job is to meet all my co-workers, and this afternoon, I will hit the phones to befriend the boss and the co-workers, and make sure I am safe in case of anything causing me to miss a day of work. I won't lose this one, like I did the last.

Slide48:

Vulcan: I JUST WROTE MY FOURTH BEST-SELLER, AND IT'S A SATIRE, NAMED “OFTEN, ORPHAN, OFTEN!”! SINCE I PROMISED AURORA I WOULD NOT WRITE A FIFTH BEST-SELLER, AND I JUST BECAME A SPECIALIST, I HAD BETTER NOT WRITE ANYTHING NEW UNTIL SHE LIFTS ALIEN TECH! I CAN REFINE MY WRITING, TO REACH THAT LAST SKILL POINT AND GET MY LIFETIME WISH!

Slide49:

Vulcan: IN THE MEANTIME, IT'S TIME FOR ME TO GET A JOB! OR NOT! THE ONLY JOBS LISTED FOR TODAY ARE EDUCATION, SCIENCE AND JOURNALISM! SINCE ONE IS ALREADY LIFTED AND THE OTHER TWO ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BEING LIFTED, I HAVE TO WAIT AND TRY AGAIN TOMORROW! WHAT ROTTEN LUCK!

Slide50:

Aurora: A tiny Angrite space rock, worth $13. Big whoop. Things had better go better this afternoon. We transmuted the ruby up to alabaster, and I'm having it cut. It's just not enough!

Slide51:

Cosmo: Abrakazam! Behold The Great Cosmunut's Power!

Slide52:

Oscar: That's wonderful! Come here and perform Friday night at 8:00. I know it's past curfew, but I'll arrange for a special military escort, so you'll be fine. Cosmo: Thank you. I'll rehearse and rehearse, so I can give the best show this town has seen. At least since the NeenerNanners hit.

Slide53:

Aurora: Another ruby. Another flergling ruby! Venus: You still have three more days. That's six more trips. Maybe you'll get lucky. Aurora: I'll have to get really lucky! This is so frustrating!

Slide54:

Aurora: A tiny unusual bellacite? $41? Ooooooh. I'm really getting scared now. Vulcan: IF YOU FAIL, KNOW THAT WE WILL HAVE A MOODLET MANAGER, INSTEAD! Aurora: Yes, but I still would have wasted all this time, and we won't have the longer lifespan! FLERGLE!

Slide55:

Vulcan: WELL, SOLAR, IT LOOKS LIKE I'M GOING TO BE A CRIMINAL! PERHAPS WE'LL BE RICH SOON, AFTER ALL! Solar: That's nice. Too bad it's not Military, so we can move out after we make our lifts. Aaaaaah! To have a place of my own. Oh, well. Maybe they'll fire you for being too noisy to sneak around at night. Vulcan: WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?

Slide56:

Solar: Never mind. Say, did you get offered Fortune Teller, for the Criminal lift, or an actual job in Crime? Vulcan: I GOT A JOB IN CRIME! Solar: Forget the Criminal lift. Go for Master Thief. And always volunteer to be the decoy. You'll be really good at being the decoy. Vulcan: IF YOU SAY SO, SOLAR!

Slide57:

Aurora: After transmuting and transmuting and transmuting the last two rubies, I now have an emerald cut alabaster worth $80 and an oval cut alabaster worth $94. According to my math, I still need objects totalling $767 in value, before Sunday evening. These tiny space rocks and rubies just won't do! I haven't even found a metal, yet!

Slide58:

Cosmo: And now, I am a Sleight of Hand Savant! Halfway there, and I have that gig tonight, which should really help.

Slide59:

B-two: sGnomeman, I knew you had some powers, but squelching all the good finds on Aurora's space journey is amazing! sGnomeman: I couldn't squash them all. She did bring home Space Babe Space Babe: Yeah, well, I'm rather glad of that one, anyway. Things are much more interesting here than at home. And I have an idea!

Slide60:

B-one: Hahahahahaaaa! Route blocking! They can't put the ladder down, now! Space Babe: Oh, yeah! Who da gnome? B-three: Whee! This is fun! Do you think they'll kick B-one over? B-two: Probably just lift him up and carry him elsewhere, but it's fun to watch him gloat, isn't it? Shhh! Don't spoil his victory.

Slide61:

Xias: Who put that gnome there? B-one: You shall not pass! Xias: No matter. They're made of light plastic. I'll just move it, and then the family can lower the ladder and let me use the toilet.

Slide62:

Xias: That's better. Well, it would be, if they would put down the ladder! Heelllooooooo! B-one: Nertz.

Slide63:

Author's Note: And on that, I'll end this chapter. All the second generation have their jobs to do, and Aurora is only waiting until she's lifted Alien Tech (or failed, miserably, in a heap of shame), before she takes her own final career. Will she do it? Will she collect and transmute enough stuff? Or will it be up to Vulcan to loudly proclaim his own victory? We'll find out next time. Happy Simming!
