Hi! Welcome back to H&D! I’m not going to waste too much time rambling right here, so let’s jump back in.
Last time around, Dutchman joined the family, along with her boring normal sister Used Napkin!
Hmmm… the glowing eyes are kind of creepy.
This dog has come around the house a lot, so I decided to adopt him! but he’s really glitchy D: I named him Squilliam. For some reason, he’s about 45 days old…
I guess you’ll be dying soon then. Or perhaps I’m too optimistic.
In other pet news…
Leroy is now elderly.
And Turbo is growing up!
Awww, he’s cute.
Turbo is my first playable cat, so I like to follow him around and watch what he does. Cats in this game are hilarious.
We don’t just have living pets in this house, though! Oh no. Cleo has made herself almost a permanent fixture here since her death.
Leedle’s here quite a bit too. Which reminds me…
Hesper: Am I dreaming? Are you really back?
Leedle: *derp face*
Still derping after death. XD
Leedle: Yeah, I’m back for the night. Let’s spend it well, okay?
Let’s try one more time for a ghost baby…
Leedle: Ah yeah. Still getting some after death. How awesome am I?
Well, you’re one of a kind, that’s for sure.
I guess Grim decided to let Leedle have an extended stay… he doesn’t seem to want to leave.
Dina: He’s dead and he’s still eating up all of our food? Lame.
Yeah, I know! You’re dead, Leedle, you don’t need to eat!
Leedle: Oh, come on, Mom. It’s been forever since I ate last! Grim isn’t the best host, you know.
I think it’s that evil trait, that’s why he’s back stealing my food.
And from this point out, things keep getting worse.
Dammit, I knew I forgot something. D: Note to self: no more fireplaces. EVER.
Herp and Leedle get caught up in the middle of it. Good thing Leedle is already dead….
Herp tried his best to put the fire out, but he didn’t manage. Also, I had called the fire department, but they didn’t show up for a good 3 sim hours!
By then, it was too late… the fire was out of control.
Hesper tried to get Leedle to save them, but he was powerless.
I’m so glad the kids were at school and missed this. Dina was glitched with one of the babies in the nursery, so she couldn’t come.
Ahhhh, Herp. D: The firefighters didn’t get there in time.
Really?! NOW you show up?!?!?!
Hesper ends up doing more work to put out the fire than the firefighter did. But it was way too late for Herp at that point.
And that’s all that’s left of Herp. Ah shit. 😦
Grim: I’m back here again already? But I wasn’t due back until Dina.
Grim: Really Regina? Another fireplace?
Oh shut up.
Leedle: Oh, Dad…. *sobs*
Leedle: How could you –*sob*- do this, Voice?!?!
I really didn’t mean to… it’s not like I murdered him like I murdered you….
Herp: So I guess this is the end, huh?
Grim: Leedle, do not cry for your father, or for my sub-par hosting skills. I’ve been watching Martha Stewart.
Grim: Ah, woo hoo!
Oh come on. Really? You’re the master of death and you can’t get around the counter? Really?
Well, somehow, he managed, and he left the household to mourn in peace.
R.I.P, Herp Derpington. You were full of surprises until the very end, and you’ll go down as one of the best Prettacy founders in history.
Except for poor Dina.
Dina: You killed my husband.
NO I DID NOT. THE FIREPLACE DID. JUST BECAUSE I FORGOT TO PUT OUT THE FIRE AFTER YOUR SWEET LITTLE PHOTOSHOOT NEXT CHAPTER DOESN’T MEAN-
Dina: Oh Herp…
The grandkids are taking the loss pretty hard, too.
Now, on first glance, this may appear to be just be a dog getting washed, but it’s actually Cleo haunting the device. Silly ghost dog.
Right then, Hesper pops, which is probably why I was on that side of the house.
Now, I know it’s been a sad chapter, but seeing Turbo will probably make you feel a bit better.
Dina: You killed my husband.
I don’t think she’s going to forgive me.
That’s all I’ve got for you this chapter. I really didn’t mean to kill Herp. I know that this was a pretty sad chapter, but I have to warn you that for the next few ones, things don’t get much better. A lot of crappy stuff goes down following Herp’s death, and I don’t know if things are going to get sorted out until the next generation takes over.
Sorry about all of that, anyway, but hopefully, you’ll stick with the family, through the good and the bad. Until next time, everybody. Happy simming!
