AND we’re back. I’m back from my vacation now, so I figured it was time for an update! This’ll probably be the last one for July unless I move really fast from here on out. 😛 Which is possible, but at the very least, you should have an update out after this one towards the beginning of August.
When we last left off, only Goober, Dutchman, and Cuddles remained in the main house, and the much smaller family was headed to Egypt…
Well, this is – wait, Goober?! What are you doing here???
Goober: It was my plan to come here, remember? And you tried to leave me behind!
Well, yes, but… *sigh* Oh well. Now that you’re here, I suppose there’s nothing that can be done about it.
And since we’re in Egypt, you know what that means!
Yep, that’s right! Synchronized disapproval of adventuring!
I guess Dutchman will do it then, since Cuddles and Goober don’t seem interested.
Cuddles: Oh, and don’t forget that I’m going to be proposing. That’s part of this trip too.
Dutchman: *is oblivious*
Well, now that we’ve got that settled – picture montage!
Sorry to interrupt our picture montage, but MAN. That face. Cuddles, you crack me up. XD
We now return to our scheduled picture montage.
Woo! But let’s not forget this trip’s true purpose.
Dutchman: And what would that be, EVP?
Mooching petty cash from the locals!
Seriously though. I leave him without a job for all of 5 minutes and his mooch trait takes over.
Cuddles: Well, this trip’s great and all so far but I think I know of a way to make it better…
Yeah, I know, you hopeless romantic, you’re all eager to marry…
Off we go, in our fancy European sports car that we shipped over for a three day trip!
And where were we going???
To a lovely oasis to propose to Dutchman!
Cuddles: Dutchman, I know I found you a bit annoying when you were younger and that I helped your older siblings raise you, but then, you became a smoking hot teenager and I realized that if we were together, we’d make absolutely beautiful babies. Will you marry me?
Aren’t you typically smoother than that, hun?
Dutchman: Oh… wow Cuddles. What a lovely ring.
Dutchman: But… I can’t accept it. Sorry. I just don’t think we’re ready for that yet.
MY HEART IS BREAKING FOR HIM. D:
Cuddles: But – but why?
Dutchman: Well, I’m still pretty pissed about that grounding thing you pulled.
Cuddles: But that was forever ago! And we’re supposed to be together 5va!
Dutchman: I’m really sorry, Cuddles. I just think that we should reconnect a little before we make that commitment.
Dutchman: I still think you’re blindingly stunning.
Cuddles: (This whole situation is so embarrassing. I’m going to go back to the tent and cry myself to sleep.)
He was fine. A little time with the Moodlet Manager and he felt just dandy.
Also, Dutchman really does find Cuddles blindingly stunning. Just not enough to marry. *giggle snort*
I feel I should also mention that Goober was there as well, taking pictures of the whole thing. I didn’t intend for Cuddles to get rejected, and now, the whole affair is on a role of film!
Could that be….? A STONE?!?!
No, seriously though, I was looking for turquoise for Dutchman’s quest and the cockatoo was right there. So I sent Dutchman off…
And it took her a reeeeeeally long time because she hovers everywhere, but eventually, we got there.
This brings back so many memories. ;_;
Dutchman: EVP says that you will be Stu II. Because apparently, she can’t come up with anything more creative.
All cockatoos in this family are going to be Stus. We’ll see how many we can get through. XD
Back at camp the next day…
Cuddles: So, Dutchman, how about that ‘reconnecting’ time now?
Dutchman: I’m game.
Ah, so that’s what she meant. Cuddles, be wary: I think she only wants you for your body!
Goober… does the scene going on behind you bother you at all?
Goober: What, there’s something going on behind me? Unless it can help me improve my photography skill like this book, I really couldn’t care less.
You’re telling me that you couldn’t hear all that?
Alright… what about that?
Goober: Oh…. now I hear it.
Goober: I’m just not going to acknowledge it. If I acknowledge it, then that means that I’m aware that it happened and I’ll be scarred for life.
Well, whatever works for you, I guess.
The two finally finished, but… was that a lullaby I heard? Or am I just trolling you guys again?
That night, Cuddles was feeling lucky. Well, not as lucky as he was earlier, but, you know. So he took Dutchman down by the river – no Goober this time.
Cuddles: You know, Dutchman, I’ve been thinking about that awful proposal earlier…
Dutchman: Oh, Cuddles, don’t dwell on that.
Cuddles: Well, anyway, I was hoping that I could do things better this time. Will you hear me out again?
Dutchman: Cuddles, I’ll marry you, you don’t have to go through this again-
Cuddles: Just, let me do this right, please!
Dutchman: Okay, whatever you say, but really, I-
Cuddles: Dutchman, you are the love of my life. I was aware of your existence way before you were aware of mine, due to the nature of being an imaginary friend, but I always thought you were badass. I mean, being a ghost from birth is pretty legit. Well, anyway, I always thought of you as a little sister who I needed to protect, until you became a teenager that is, and then I realized how much we had in common.
Dutchman: Oh, Cuddles.
Cuddles: And I just want to spend the rest of my existence with you, if you’ll spend yours with me. I know that it’s kind of strange, as you’re already dead and I’m alive, but I wasn’t always, so I’m not going to worry about all of the complexities of our mortality states and the implications that has for our marriage. I’m just going to ask you to be with me for as long as possible.
Cuddles: And now that I’ve done this right, will you marry me?
Dutchman: Oh Cuddles, that was so sweet.
Dutchman: Of course I’ll marry you after you said something so sweet. I’m sorry I rejected you yesterday, I don’t know what I was thinking.
Cuddles: YES. I was so worried I’d be rejected again!
Dutchman: Just hurry up and give me the ring already! You wouldn’t want me to change my mind, would you?
Cuddles: Alright, alright!
Dutchman: It’s so beautiful…
Cuddles: Yeah, but it’s not as great as you are.
They were so close to being at the end of their vacation, I was worried they wouldn’t have time for this proposal. The time was literally about 11:30 on the last day when everything was said and done, and they didn’t even have time to get back to camp before they were returning home.
Still, a nice vacation. We accomplished everything we set out to do. 🙂
Back at home, Cuddles takes care of some… business.
Cuddles: Hello, is this the adoption agency? ….Yes, I’ll hold.
Cuddles: The deed is done.
Cuddles: You’ll see…
Dutchman: Cuddles, you have a strange look on your face. What did you do?
Cuddles: Oh nothing, nothing…
Dutchman: Well, I was thinking… It might be nice if we made our family a little bigger. It’s been so quiet around here lately, with everybody moving out and all.
Cuddles: I’m so glad you agree! I already got on it, actually!
Dutchman: Wait, what?
Cuddles: Well, I called the pet adoption agency. It’s just, this house is so quiet, and I’ve always wanted a dog or two.
Dutchman: That’s not exactly what I meant, but…
Cuddles: I know hun, I’m trolling you. I’d love that too. But I really did adopt a dog.
Check out all our French frogs! XD
Pet supplies for the new addition.
And there the little rascal is now! Meet Bear!!!
HE’S SO CUTE. ❤
OMG THE EARS.
And the widdle wiggly butt. XD
Dutchman: So this is the little guy?
Bear: *Is petrified*
And he’s not scared of Dutchman. XD He’s scared of Cuddles.
Dutchman: Well then. let’s take him in.
Ahhhhh bby. ❤
Cuddles: Yay! Puppy!!!
Cuddles: Here you go little guy – your new home!
Bear: *not sure about this*
Yeah, it’s a big place, but you’ll get used to it.
See, he’s already settling in!
OMG. He’s soooooooo cute. ❤
Dutchman has a nice little area where she can work on that writing skill of hers.
Science fiction seems an appropriate genre for Dutchman. Although Holmberg-Weidler makes me think Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium.
Regina, your biology brain is showing!
HOW HOW HOW COULD THEY MAKE PUPPIES THIS CUTE.
WOOK AND HIS WIDDLE FWEET. AHHHHH.
My Simself gets the Dog Person trait. I think it’s appropriate, and it accounts for this massive amount of squealing and Bear spam. But he also reminds me a lot of my puppy Kiara. Bear looks like a Bernese mountain dog, which is very similar to the breed my puppy is mixed with, which is the Greater Swiss mountain dog.
Alright, enough about me.
They wasted no time. XD I love this pairing. Used Rags forever!
So much Bear spam but I just can’t help myself. He’s so cute.
Bear: Off I go!!!
Bear: Exploring the house!
Bear: Derping around!
Even the pets in this family derp. XD
It’s just… I wouldn’t take this many pictures but he’s so cute. Look at the faces he makes.
Watch out, Cuddles! You’ve got a super-cute competitor!
HIS WIDDLE PAWS.
Everybody will love Bear as much as me. Everybody.
See, Dutchman loves Bear! 😀
And Bear loves Dutchman!
I told you. Stu II. XD
What is this I don’t even.
When they chase their tails I melt a little inside.
Stu: Strange little fellow, that Bear. I thought he was a dog? Why is he named Bear?
Stu, it isn’t your job to ponder! Just do normal bird things, like sing for crackers and shit. XD
Dutchman: *sneak sneak*
Dutchman: (Oh, this is gonna be good!)
Dutchman: BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA!!!!
Cuddles: BOOLPROP HAVE MERCY!
Cuddles: WHAT IN PLUMBBOB’S NAME IS GOING ON?!?!
Cuddles: Why, Dutchman? WHHHHHHY???
Dutchman: So. Now that you’ve calmed down, you wanna woohoo?
Cuddles: Sure. Now that my heart isn’t threatening to explode, why not?
What’s wrong with you two?
Cuddles: Heheh. Photobooth sexytimes.
Dutchman: Oh wow, we looked like that?!?! Oh shit.
Dutchman: Must. Destroy. Evidence.
Cuddles: That was awesome!!!
Dutchman: *rip rip rip*
AND not five minutes later, they’re back at it.
That’s all for this chapter! Will we be meeting generation 3 soon? Did I really hear a lullaby or did I just think I did? Will I stop taking so many pictures of Bear probably not?
Tune in next time everybody! Until then, happy simming, and thank you so so much for reading!
