Hi everybody! Told you this next chapter would be up quick! 😉 Also, my internet is still not back up as I write this, so here’s another chapter prepared while I lack a connection to the rest of the universe. XD
This is the first thing that popped up when I loaded my game for this session:
Oh Penny. XD
Meanwhile, at home, Goober is – wait, Goober, what exactly are you doing?
Goober: Fighting the power, one forum at a time!
She really is fighting the power. XD Also, she really has to pee.
Oh, I plan to. XD
In the kitchen, our heir is doing less interesting, more domestic things. Specifically, she’s burning breakfast.
Also, her custom dress is missing. I’ll have to fix that later.
Peanut: *creeping hard*
Yeah I’m so finished with imaginary friends for this legacy. Rags is the last one I’m making real for at least 3 more generations. I want to breed out the gene at some point. 😛
LOOK AT HER. LOOK AT HER. WHY IS SHE NOT THE HEIR?
I just, I really love her eyes. Also, her inappropriate forum posts are great. XD
This is the last shot I got before this happened:
Right about there is when I started having the issues with my game. As I said in my previous post, it turns out that this issue was due to my gaming graphics card getting turned off when I updated my drivers. Unfortunately, I didn’t know this at the time, thought it was my game, and proceeded to start an uninstall/re-install cycle about 5 times. And then my dad fixed it. :S
I didn’t play the Derpingtons for about two weeks, though.
Hi there! Long time no see… uh, air freshener thing?
Oh, and Used Napkin! Hi!
Used Napkin: Quiet. I’m meditating.
AND WHERE’S YOUR PATTERN DAMMIT?! (A lot of things got misplaced and never re-downloaded with all those uninstalls. I lost a lot of my .sims3pack files, most of which were patterns).
CREEPY FREEZER BUNNY ICE CREAM TRUCK OF DOOOOOOOOMMMM.
More Goober. She’s gorgeous. ❤ Who would have thought Herp’s grandchildren would look this good?!
Oh, and since her shirt pattern was missing, I gave her a new one. This one is one that I made myself, it’s got penguins in it. *o*
That’ll keep her from making those inappropriate forum posts.
Does this update seem kind of disjointed to you? Yeah, me too. I think it’s because I was having to reload my game so much for a while there. I was kind of just taking pictures of random things.
So here we have Cuddles eating. Why? I have no idea. Just bask in his ambiance for a minute, and then we’ll move on.
Rags needed to go fishing for some opportunity that popped up. Luckily for us, there’s a well-stocked body of water right across from the house!
STOP FLIRTING WITH EVERYTHING THAT BREATHES WUMBO.
Also. XD Haha. She fainted when he looked at her. XD Wow I love the descriptions on some of these things.
Meanwhile, I was drawn to the bathroom after hearing some interesting noises that sounded like Cuddles…
Cuddles: EVP! You can’t just waltz in here while I’m bathing. I’m… well… in the nude!!!
Making noises in the bathroom and throwing a fit at nothing is strange, Cuddles! Also, I didn’t know you were shy.
Cuddles: I’m not, it’s just, you gave me no time to prep! If I had known there’d be an audience, I’d have trimmed a little, and-
OKAY MOVING ON.
Cuddles: *sigh* Whatever you say. You lead me to believe I’m going to put on a show and then you change your mind on the spur of the moment. What a disappointment. Ladies, I’ll be right here if you need me. *wink*
Who else wants their own Cuddles?
Just a shot of Used Napkin. Also, I’m fond of the living room, even though the paint job irks me a bit.
So many ghosts always haunting… And as the legacy progresses, there’ll just be more and more.
Because this is the Derpingtons, just about every single chapter I have to give you a shot of a half-naked Cuddles gardening!
More shots for your viewing pleasure. Although at this rate, you’ve probably seen enough of Cuddles, what with his strange antics in the bathroom. 😉
Dutchman paints really nice paintings, even though her skill is nowhere near maxed.
Seems as though she wants to see snow. Hopefully, there’ll be a seasons pack soon, Dutchie! Hold out just a little while. 🙂
Rags: I like holding your hands, Used.
Used Napkin: *blushes*
Remember these two? And how they kissed but then my game crashed. Yeah, this is me trying to fix that.
Rags: Like, wow.
Used Napkin: *giggles*
THEY’RE JUST SO CUTE I COULD DIE. ❤ ❤ ❤ OTP.
These two, on the other hand, are boring. Very boring. Although it’s kind of cute that when I send Dutchman to paint, Cuddles serenades her on the piano in the room.
Perhaps things will be less boring now?
NO I DID NOT MEAN PHOTOBOOTH WOOHOO WHY YOU DIRTY LITTLE SIMS!
Rags: … well this is awkward.
I have nothing to say to you. I just resent all of you IF boys deflowering these young Derpington girls.
Used Napkin: Heheh… so you saw that, huh?
I see all and know all, and I’m disappointed in you young lady. Just because your parents and older siblings aren’t around doesn’t mean you can autonomously woohoo in the photobooth. 😡
At least she destroyed the evidence.
And I guess they didn’t have such a good time. XD I laughed so hard when I saw that moodlet. Oh Woohooer, you amuse me. 😛
Goober… should I ask what you’re doing behind the bookshelf?
Goober: Honestly… I have no idea. I just kind of appeared here and got stuck.
Oh Sims…. <ctrl-> shift –> c –> resetsim Goober Derpington>
Cuddles: So now that you’re unstuck, Goob, I want to tell you something. It’s a secret.
Goober: I’m all ears Cuddles but it might be a good idea to look at me while you’re talking to me. What are you looking at anyway?
Cuddles: The audience. The ladies love my scheming face.
Cuddles: Okay, here’s the deal – after Dutchman grows up tomorrow, I’m going to ask her to marry me!
Cuddles: What do you think? Will she say yes?
Goober: Well, if you want to guarantee a good response, take her somewhere new and really romantic. Like a vacation! Oh, and make sure you bring me along! I can… give you advice, yeah, advice and work on my photography skill in the process.
Cuddles: That’s a great idea! I’m so glad that I discussed this in advance with you, Goob! You’re the best!
Goober: Yeah, yeah, don’t mention it. And I promise, I won’t say anything to Dutchman.
Speaking of Dutchman… I really love her paintings!
Cuddles: You know Goober, I’ve been thinking… maybe it’s too soon. I mean, I love Dutchman and I hope she’ll marry me one day but I think she might be sore over that whole grounding thing still.
Goober: You worry too much. Just stick to the plan.
Cuddles: But what if she-
Goober: THE PLAN, Cuddles.
Just a shot of the robot-looking freezer bunny chair. It’s spiffy. XD
Seems these two are always at each others’ throats based on these pop-ups, but they’re still together. *shrug*
Dutchman’s started painting the heir and spouse pictures. XD
Spoiler alert, she’s marrying Cuddles.
Looking spiffy, Derpington men.
So, I was looking at the family tree, and I noticed that all of the 1st generation sims but Weast were elderly. D: Also, Weast and Pat finally tied the knot. XD
HE LOOKS SO OLD. OH PAT. D:
AND WUMBO. *CRIES*
I’m not ready for them to die. ;_;
Sims crack the greatest faces when working on homework. Or Goober does.
Used Napkin just seems really perturbed with hers.
And everybody’s favorite Rags decides to do his homework… outside of the school.
He’s adorable, but a bit dense.
Damn, Peanut is creeping hard.
And he’s self-centered.
Dutchman: All I wanted to do was finish my homework in peace… *sigh*
Don’t worry Dutchie, I’ll put him in your inventory… when I remember to.
You can see her new outfit now (I finally updated it. XD) Can anybody tell what it says? I’ll give somebody a prize if they can figure it out (I dunno what, but I’ll think of something XD).
And Dutchman’s heir portrait is done! Woo!
Chip is moving up in the world! Too bad he hasn’t found somebody to spend his life with though. :[
Also moving up in the world is Cuddles!
Swimming with the boyfriend, eh Used Napkin? As long as you keep away from the photobooth, we won’t have any problems.
The family is always clad in their bathing suits. They either try to play in the sprinklers (although the plants are in the way so they can’t XD) or they’re swimming.
WHY DO ALL OF THE GHOSTS HAUNT JUST TO SLEEP IN THE BEDS I MEAN I DON’T EVEN
Seriously though, don’t they get enough sleep, what with being dead and all? Just a thought.
Cuddles is studious… and in his underwear.
He likes to wear the least amount of clothes possible, obviously.
You could try a little harder, Goob.
More Used Napkin/Rags action. These two are in wuv. What would their ship name be? Used Rags? That’s what my little sister is saying, but I’m not sure. XD
Rags: So, Used… want to go to prom with me?
What did she say?!?!?!
Guess that woohoo was worse than we thought. XD
Oh, and look who’s got a LTW!
Speaking of couples
a few pictures back but who cares we totally were talking about couples.
More piano-playing and painting. Even if they aren’t interacting, they like to be in the same room as each other. Everybody together now: d’awwwwww.
Both: *awkward staring because the Sim-Ruler forbade woohoo*
Oh well. They can still Cuddle. Yay! Cuddles for Cuddles. XD
Doesn’t he seem like he’s in a constant state of euphoria when he’s around Dutchman? It’s freaking adorable.
I’ve never seen somebody so psyched to be dating a dead person, but I suppose if necrophilia
okay technically not necrophilia but I’m not sure if there’s a particular one involving ghosts is your thing… *shrugs*
PENNY. WHY YOU NO BE NICE TO YOUR TWIN BROTHER?!?!?!
He even looks happy while singed. This guy is great. XD
Awkward bus rides home…
Used Napkin: *eyetwitch*
Homework in the bushes. Totally normal.
Rags: I love you so much my Usey Wusey.
Used Napkin: Awwww, Rags! *giggle*
Dutchman: Gotta pee.
Cuddles: Don’t mind me, just playing piano. Also, when are we going to get pictures for these frames?
I’M WORKING ON IT DAMMIT.
Goo-goo eyes. XD
HEY LOOK. I GOT HER HAIR BACK. WUT.
Yeah, prom time.
Rags: I’m so excited to go to prom with you. 😀
Used Napkin: PROOOOOM.
Ah, I wuffs these two.
Cute faces. ❤
And now an onslaught of screen clippings from prom.
I’m starting to think somebody spiked Dutchman’s punch.
WE KNOW YOU GUYZ.
Yep the punch is definitely spiked.
It’s really no wonder her crush doesn’t like her. She’s mean. XD
This is the family’s wall of prom pictures. Some are superior to others. Mainly, Hesper’s sucks and Goobers could have been way better.
I just… I love Cuddles. He’s one of my favorites in this house. AND YOU ALL SHOULD FEEL THE SAME. ALL OF YOU. ALLLLLLLLL OOOOOFFFFF YYOOOOOOUUUUU.
MOAR piano playing and painting.
All a part of the Duddles ship. (ship name = accepted)
Cuddles: Ladies. *wink*
We’ll end this update with a shot of booties and also Cuddles and Dutchman’s favorite group activity
seriously you’d think it was woohoo with these two but it isn’t. What will happen next time? Will I update quickly? I really should because I’ve already edited the pictures for the next 6 updates… yes, I’ve played that far ahead.
Answers to these pressing questions and more in the next chapter of Herping and Derping! See you then!!!
