Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! It’s looking like I’m going to fall short of my SimNaWriMo goal of seven updates in October, but I CAN STILL TRY. This is update number four for the contest, so maybe – just maybe – I can crap out a total of seven updates by Monday.
This time we’re picking up with Elaine’s teen birthday – yup, Elaine, and NOT Mabel as I believe I said at the end of last chapter, I’ve changed it and that’ll teach me to never crap out an update before work again – and it looks like we have some party planning happening.
“We need to have a party, Callie. She’s our oldest daughter! She’s not our little girl anymore!”
“Hmm? Do whatever you want, Puzzle. I’m just enjoying my food!”
Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! I’m really pushing myself to post as many updates as possible thanks to Boolprop’s SimNaWriMo event, so here’s some more wackiness. Last time Hector aged into a child, Elaine aged into a toddler, Callie went clubbing with Frankie, Heimrich was still stuck with all the childcare, and Natalie and Puzzle had some crazy Woohoo and produced a third offspring, another daughter named Mabel.
This time we’ll start things off with a nice promotion for Puzzle! She so desperately wanted to be promoted, so hopefully this will satsify her – Ambitious Sims, am I right?
“Yes, an accurate picture of our sweet mansion…”
Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! Are you ready for the last chapter of Generation Four? That’s right – Natalie is going to become an adult at the end of this chapter! (~SPOILERS OMG~) For now, she’s just kicking back and relaxing with some after-school painting.
Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! This time around we’re starting off with Griselda finishing a Skill Challenge. Yes, she’s finally written enough smut to become a smut specialist! I actually can’t remember if this is for the Romance, Trashy, or Humour genres, but let’s pretend it’s just for Generic Smut™.
Anyway, last time Puzzle and Natalie made their relationship official, Puzzle showed off her mischievous side by pranking the school and attempting to spray Heimrich with the sink, and Hestia became a teenager…sort of? She sadly glitched out and became a Face One shell of herself, meaning that she’ll be kicked out of the legacy house when Mitchell ages up in this chapter.
“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!
“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!
“Come on Hestia! Just say something, anything! Please, I’m begging you!”
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!).
“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.
“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.
“Ah, little Natalie! Aren’t you perfect! I hardly want to steal candy from you.”
Welcome back to the Scatterday Matriarchy! Sorry for the bit of a delay in chapters. I just started a new job, so that plus visiting my boyfriend’s family and general being busy kind of put a damper on my plan to finish Callie’s generation by the end of the year. Unless I churn out like seven more updates in the next two weeks, which probably won’t happen. ~Oh well~
Anyway, a quick recap before we move on. Last time Mitchell grew into a toddler and little Natalie here was born. That’s about it. Let’s see what the family gets up to this time around! Continue reading
