Hello there, people of Earth, and welcome back to Herping and Derping! Last time, we saw Wumbo grow up into a teenager, Leedle become bent on world domination, and Weast get almost completely neglected! Let’s see what’s going on with our favorite family of Derpingtons now!
And don’t worry. I won’t make you watch educational television… yet.
Raccoon! Although, he kind of looks like a cat, don’t you agree?
Yeah, I’m still flailing over Pets. Even though Showtime is out. *shrug*
Wumbo: This is so awkward, EVP. This girl doesn’t have a face!
Wumbo: Whew, what a relief. Much less awkward now.
Sometimes, it’s better not to have a face, instead of having the face you have… no, I’m not talking about Herp/Wumbo, not at all…
ALSO. Last time, I forgot to mention. Wumbo rolled the dramatic trait. Yeah.
Dina: Herp, I’m so happy we’re going steady again. We’re falling in love all over again and it’s wonderful!
Don’t worry, there’s no more babies from these two. But the fact that they’re sharing a bed again shows how much progress this relationship has made.
I built… a pool. I don’t know why. And I realized that I put it too far back, so when I think about it again, I’m going to get rid of it and build another one. For now, Leedle and Dina seem to enjoy it, what with their shared enthusiasm for fitness.
Oh look, it’s Papa- hey, wait a minute, where did our old Paparazzi go?! The one that pissed off Dina way back when!
New Paparazzi: He retired. I’m the new guy.
You’re lame. I want my old paparazzi back. *sobs*
Leedle: Hey, pay attention to me, EVP! I’m about to have my birthday, which means more opportunities to create misfortune and disaster wherever I go! Isn’t that right, Hesper? Hesper?
Hesper: *contemplates jumping into the pool in order to commit suicide*
Oh, Hesper, it’s not that bad… I assume… I don’t have to live with him, I wouldn’t know. :S
Pat: It’s a giraffe! Ha ha!
Hush you. We already told that joke last chapter.
Wait for the sparkles to clear, and…
OH NO HE’S HOT!!!
Yes, that’s right folks. Despite those big Dumbo ears (which were inherited from Herp), Leedle is quite the looker. In only the first generation of the Prettacy.
Well, this knocks out the challenge quite considerably. 0.0
Also, he’s now got the genius trait. Because apparently, an evil sim wasn’t enough for the Derpingtons. His father wanted a genius, too.
Because I was able to pick his trait, I indulged Herp’s wishes, so now we’ve got an evil genius on our hands.
Leedle: Oh, so now that I’m pretty, you’ll follow me around?
Yeah, that’s kind of how it works.
Wumbo: Stupid attractive brother. *grumble grumble*
Herp: Stupid attractive son. *grumble grumble*
Not you, too!
We can’t give up hope, though. Perhaps Weast will surprise us. Although if you’ve seen the heir poll, you’re already well aware of the results of that.
Dina: She’s just exaggerating, Weast. Leedle can’t be so attractive that nobody will beat him out for heir! You’ve still got a chance!
Weast: Rarwg I’m aw monstwer!
With that face, I rest my case.
Dina: Just because my kids are all unique looking doesn’t mean you have to be mean to them, EVP. They’re good people.
Yeah, Dina, but good people who look peculiar are often the victims of bullying. Besides, your son is evil. He’s automatically not a good person then. Your argument is invalid!
Just as Dina was about to retort, I was called away by an urgent howling from Cleo. Which reminded me that I forgot to feed her.
That… wasn’t exactly it though. Upon which I squealed “puppies”!
Meet Leroy and Sophie, everybody! The names were random, which is funny, because my favorite Sims 2 dog EVER was named Leroy. 😀
Not the first thing I would focus on after just being born, but okay.
But seriously though, these puppies are adorable. I’m proud of Cleo and Dexter. They made cute babies.
Wumbo was also very excited about the puppies, so excited that she got stuck in the chemistry table.
Wumbo: A little help, here?
No, I think I’d rather watch.
Oh gosh, it should be illegal to be so adorable.
Too cute. Just too cute for words. *.*
Leedle: She’s talking about me, I just know it.
Are you sure you didn’t roll the conceited trait?
Leedle: I think the lady doth protest too much. I mean, look at me.
Weast: I cwute twoo!
Yes, you are, in your own special way. Especially your nose. It gives you character.
Just… don’t make that face ever again.
Weast: You fwunny! I grow up, now!
Oh, that’s what it was. I thought for a minute she might have been constipated.
Weast: Ah ha, the annoying baby voice is gone. And now I’m old enough to talk to myself in peace.
She’s not too bad, although she looks kind of… old? I don’t know, maybe she’ll grow into her face.
She rolled the angler trait. So she’s now the family’s crazy fisherman.
Leedle: Not to worry, she won’t usurp me! I will rule this family, and then, the world! Muahahahaha!
Weast: Hey moron, I can totally hear you!
With all of the thinking they do about food, you’d think I forget to feed them. I SWEAR I DO FEED THEM DON’T CALL THE AUTHORITIES ON ME.
Wumbo: EVP, you forgot to take care of me!
Hey, Wumbo, what’s that Z doing by your-
Somehow she still made it home, much to Leedle’s dismay. I think he may have slipped her some sleeping elixir as part of his “master plan” to take over the family.
The random kid in the background… I can only assume he’s taking a vacation from his own family to hang out with this one. BAD CALL DUDE.
In order to distract him, and eliminate some of that evil energy, Leedle got a job at the mausoleum. Because who doesn’t want to work at a mausoleum?
Leedle: I don’t.
He lies. He rolled the want to get a part-time job.
Leedle: This place is spooky. I like it. I change my mind, working here will be grand.
Oh, Leedle… you’re a frightening soul.
Apparently, Patches decided to break dance.
Yeah, I dunno. IFs are weird. They belong with the Derpingtons, they really do.
Patches: I’m a real boy!
Not quite, but you’re getting there.
Dina: I’m posing for my portrait. Go away now.
I’ll be back momentarily to check on that.
Random hot tub that we received as a gift for being celebrities (score).
Herp: Almost done, and… finished! What do you think, love?
What she thinks doesn’t matter. All that matters is that the portraits are done for Dina and Herp. Yay!
I sense that you’re up to no good, Leedle.
Leedle: I’m evil. I’m never up to no good.
Good… er… evil? point.
Leedle: You didn’t see anything.
I’ll pretend I didn’t.
Leedle: FML. It broke.
Oh, well, guess your plan failed…
Leedle: Nah, it’s cool, I brought more.
Leedle: Heheheh, score!
Leedle: At the snap of my fingers, I can make an egg disappear. Right after it shatters into a million tiny pieces and splatters its yolk everywhere.
Aren’t you missing the point here?
Neighbor: Damn kids!
Leedle and I ran away after that.
…And went to do more pranks.
Leedle: Heheh, this house looks old and spooky. Perfect for pranking.
Leedle: It’s the ripest.
Leedle: I’m having so much fun, it’s almost criminal.
I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself. Now are we done?
Leedle: Not exactly… just one more prank I want to pull…
Leedle… what did you do to the school?
Leedle: Oh, nothing… let’s just say, though, that teachers may be swimming to class tomorrow.
And that’s how Leedle Derpington got away with flooding the school.
Herp: Yes, hi, this is Herp Derpington…
Why is Herp on the phone? Will Leedle ever stop his pranking ways? Will Wumbo ever be able to make her IF real? Will Dina and Herp get remarried?
Tune in next time (and the next time, and the next time, and the next time, and the next time, and the next time…) to see the answers to these questions! Until then, happy Simming everybody!
