The Scatterday Matriarchy 4.11: Pod People


“Okay…how should I say it…’Nat, I’m sorry we tried to push things…’ or maybe ‘Nat, can we figure this out? I’m sorry we moved too fast and…’ Oh, this is stupid! I’ll never make it right!”

Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! As you can see, Puzzle got a makeover! She’s got kind of a goth 50s thing going on, since her favourite colour is black, and she’s family oriented. If this Sim doesn’t look familiar, you might want to go back and read the last chapter, because lots of things happened, like Angelo dying, Heimrich achieving his LTW, Manfred aging into a teenager, and Puzzle here becoming a real Sim!

The Scatterday Matriarchy 4.10: Go Home, Neighbour Kids


“Hmm…I wonder where Puzzle got to? The last time we hung out was before prom…”

Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! No fooling around here – it’s an update! Before we start though, a quick PSA – over at Boolprop, a bunch of us are starting a Joint Sims 3 Legacy! Looks like I’m going to be taking care of the second generation, and some other great folks are involved too. Sign-ups are closed now, but if you want to be put on the wait list in case someone needs to drop out, or if you want to follow along, check out the Boolprop thread!

Alright, back to Sims silliness now! Last time Natalie became a teenager, Manfred was the best weird kid, Mitchell was an adorable big brother, Hestia became a child, and Natalie and Mitchell had a horrid time at prom. The adults also accomplished things, I guess, but the kids are really where it’s at!

The Scatterday Matriarchy 4.9: It’s Just Instinct


“Come on Hestia! Just say something, anything! Please, I’m begging you!”

“Heeeeee beeeeeegggggg….”

Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! Yup, updates are still slow. Seriously, I’ve been busy working and socializing in offline settings, like some sort of freak. Anyway, since tomorrow (that’s March 20, 2016, which is actually in fifteen minutes as I’m publishing this at 11:45 pm on March 19) is my third legaversary and I have no other plans tonight, have an update! Three years of the Scatterdays, holy shit! :O Anyways, let’s get on with this update, as it has a few things that people want to see, I think (like Natalie becoming a teenager!).

The Scatterday Matriarchy 4.8: Flopping Around


“Alright, Manfred, it’s time for lunch! Sit in the high chair, now.”


“It’s safe, I promise!”

Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! It’s been a few weeks TWO MONTHS HOLY CRAP, and I have to catch up with some many things in the Sims community, but I’m still here, damn it! Turns out that when you stare at a computer screen all day for money, staring at a computer screen is the last thing you want to do for leisure. Before we get started, I thought you should know that the Scatterdays were nominated for two Golden Plumbobs over at Boolprop: Best Sims 3 Legacy and Funniest Sims 3 Story! Thank you so, so much to whoever nominated me! The Scatterdays didn’t win, but one of the winners was The Dysfunkshinul Legacy, and frankly I just can’t compete with that. 😛 (Go read it, it is seriously fantastic.) If you’re interested checking out other Golden Plumbob winners or joining the forum, you can do that over yonder.

Anyway, let’s get back to some legacy silliness, shall we? Last time everyone had a birthday, Griselda was publicly disgraced, and Callie and Heimrich had their fourth and final child, a daughter named Hestia.

The Scatterday Matriarchy 4.7: Okay, Stop. Everyone Go Up A Shirt Size!


“La la la…playin’ wif my best friend…”

Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! If you celebrate it, I hope you had a great Christmas! I really want to make some progress on my legacy – I’d like to knock out at least two more generations in 2016, depending on my schedule, so let’s continue on with Callie’s generation. One last legacy update for 2015! Last time, Natalie aged into a toddler and bonded with her Imaginary Friend Puzzle, Mitchell grew into a child, and a third child, a boy named Manfred, was born.

Spoiler alert for this chapter: birthdays, man. So many birthdays. Hence, the title, which is one of my favourite riffs from Werewolf, Natalie’s namesake episode.
