I'm coming to a point in it where various choices have to be made and I want them to be the right ones. But, rest assured, I have no intention to abandoning this thread: being part of it means a lot to me. I will damn well finish that story, unless you all gang up on me and demand that I stop. Well, I guess everybody's too polite to do that but, you know, maybe a subtle hint if I'm boring people.

It doesn't matter how long it takes, but we're definitely looking forward to the next post.

First off, welcome properly! Your comment made me really happy. I'm glad you like me redoing the older posts. It's hard going - a lot more work than I anticipated. But some things were just poorly done and need proper treatment. I just hope it's not too jarring to eventually go back to those early post time skip posts, with the obviously inferior screenshots.

And since my characters mean a lot to me, I love the fact that you relate to them too!

Good chapter as usual, Nat ^^

Ha ha, look like Tate is scared that Ed's potential influence over the kids show them the asshole he really is and tell that his scars are the result of the hitman abandoning his own brother.

Too bad for him, that'll happen later as the kids will leave him with their mother XD

Welcome, Emma, to Scumthorpe-thread-holics Not-So-Anonymous! I hope college has been an enjoyable experience for you so far. I know it's school, which means studying and blah blah blah, but don't forget to have fun, too.

Sorry I didn't comment on this before Nat, but I agree with everyone else, taking this trip down memory lane with your characters is great! It's fascinating to look at them in the past and see how far they've come.

...*sigh*
While nobody deserves to be abused by their parents, people who use past abuse to justify or deflect attention from their own abusive behavior are the worst.

On a slightly lighter topic, BL00DIED, what the hell is that gif from? Flipping off people while beaming rainbows at them is my jam, and now I must watch whatever this is from.

Here's a small look at my current Sims 3 legacy family. I've gotten quite a ways into this game file, so this might be a case of playing catch up for a while. I have plenty of photos now, though! (Also, I admittedly feel sheepish about the founder's name as in hindsight, that was the same given name as Spiritbw's legacy founder, August Killjoy. ^^; Apologies to Spiritbw, wherever you may be, it was an accident!)

I wish I could tell you, but I'm afraid I have no idea! Google didn't really help much, though it did remind me that I initially found it myself in one of Something Awful's meme threads.

Tate, I am this close to slapping you with a cactus.

You guys write your villains so well I hate them so much.
I'm gonna smother the others in so much love. Drown in my electronically transmitted love.
The Hoblins are so beautiful. I love them already.

Oh, that's exactly what it is. He is terrified that Edward could tell the triplets all about him.

Funnily enough, he wasn't really trying to do that, this time. But I do agree that a) he didn't deserve it and b) he would use that as a defense for his own behaviour. Probably along the lines of 'I don't hit them so I'm not doing anything wrong'. And in the instance he did hit one, I think he'd overemphasise it when trying to defend himself to Brie.

Both Roxxi and Brie made the mistake of feeling sorry for him.

Tate hate makes my day. Sometimes I wonder if Tate is too over the top, but then I read about narcissists. There's a disturbing amount of people out there who are like him.

But at least they're not hitmen. just the US President

So do I. Inventing opprobrious epithets, specially applicable to Tate or Abraxas, is a rewarding pass time. Therapeutic too.

@OliverCrisp: I like the Hoblins, and Goblin is rather cute. Since they're the result of a rolled a die it seems like these guys were fated to exist. Well, who are we to argue with fate? I look forward to hearing more about them.

Thanks, and thanks to everyone for your kind words again. Although, speaking of fate, perhaps it is such (or a curse) that the influence of the Scumthorpe thread enters readers' Sims games. I won't spoil too much for now as this is a story for later in the legacy, but today's game session...woof.

Nah, Abraxas has been sending out free copies of his "classic" movies.

...Actually, what really happened is I downloaded some porn posters to decorate a teenage boy's room, so when Nal got married... Yeah.

I actually found the notification, too.



And thanks to CC objects being sent as gifts, Zaryn got a token of affection from her boss:



...Yeah, that's a ball gag. Not only is that massively inappropriate (what is it with science bosses hitting on employees? Does this guy admire Marcus' dating tactics, or something? Nobody should admire Marcus in any way, shape or form), but she's a lesbian. So. Y'know. Barking up the wrong tree.

This also happened:





TL;DR: Because I don't control myself when I see an adult related download, my Sims autonomously become hypersexual.

Cripes, for a second I forgot where in Nat's timeline we were at and thought Tate was after Charon for a moment. I mean, I know Charon isn't out of hot water yet, but color me relieved for now?

*snort* Now I'm tempted to find a bunch of gag items (...uh, no pun intended this time), throw them in the game, and see what happens.

I'm trying to find the best reaction for Tate in that update. I can't decide.



Or maybe this.



Both seem fitting.

Well Venusprincess has The Penetrator from Saints Row 3 as an accessory and decor object on their tumblr...

I'd link it but I'm not 100% sure if that's allowed, given that it's a giant purple rubber cock.

Yes, for now...



Yeah, we're firmly in the past right now, and Charon is a seven-year-old who hasn't quite grasped the act of dropping meteors yet.



This is currently the face of innocence. :3

I've been slowly dipping my toe back into screenshotting, and thought something smaller and easier to do than jumping right back into the deep end with wrapping the wedding up would be that Bryan AMA I promised to do years and years ago. ...And then almost immediately forgot about.

(Un?)fortunately, I don't think we'll see much of this Imaginary Friend in the future. Hesper (the doll) didn't age up with Goblin into a teen and, last I knew, is stuck as a doll, and occasionally I still get messages from Overwatch regarding the doll and aging errors. I'd see if I could reset him, but at this point, Hesper is nowhere to be found.

Aaaand now I've learned more about greasy geezer Bryan than I ever wanted to. Hooray! :D

If a certain Game Grumps story is any indicator, at least one person has injured themselves trying to do things of a similar nature. So yeah, seconding this and strongly suggesting do not attempt. XD
