BaCC: The Prism Family, Week Five, AweSimSauce Style  

In which a whole lot of nothing happens.

Royal Prism is a knowledge Sim who hopes to maximize seven skill points. He moved to New Jennerica with his two cats, Rice (right, from Obsessisim @ MTS) and Beans (on left, by maratanah.) I don't want him to settle for anything less than a high two bolt match. Turns out it will be more of a challenge than I thought.

In keeping with the naming rules, I chose Royal, as in royal blue. Please note he is wearing a blue sweater.

Rice: I kno ur up thar, ceiling cat.

Beans is the sweet, well-behaved kitty.

Rice is the terror of all the furniture. Or should that be tear-er?

Rice: Foolis hoomin, he shal pey!

Rice: O grate ceiling cat, smite mi hoomin!

The welcome wagon showed up without a single townie. Royal likes blondes, and this city is blonde-scarce. I can't think of any townies who are, and I don't believe he can marry a playable according to rules.

Typical cat, licking their butts in front of the company.

Beans: Ur hand iz mine!

Rice: Must... strengthen... claws... for... mutiny...

Rally: So, I totally fell in love with her!
Royal: Um, great.

Rally: Then I finally kissed her, and it was wonderful!
Royal is actively not listening.

Royal looks for a job on his pretty blue lappy and found a position in the slacker career track. It's just temporary until I can find a more suitable position for him.

Rice: Hey, u got hands tu pet me wif! Pet me!

It's been so long since there was a fire in New Jennerica. I just need one more for another spot in law enforcement to open.

Beans: Hello, litul birdie. Reddy for a beetdown? Heh heh heh.

The master bath is blue. Yay, color themes!

Rice: Nom nom nom...

First day of work as a caddy.

Negative bolts with ol' elf ears.

Royal has a bit of a mean streak.

Catching butterflies in the snow

On a spouse-shopping trip to the supermarket, Royal met his first two-bolt girl: Coraline Charming. Figures he'd have the hots for a playable.

Despite her talent for pointing in mittens, Danielle Lilliard doesn't even rate a single bolt with Royal. I think I might save her for later in the challenge. There is a pink generation, right?

Beans: Anyone else having deja vu?

I know why the penguin is snow covered, but I just feel so sorry for her.

The Prisms adopted Digit, another male kitty. I'm hoping for kittens, and Beans and Rice aren't cooperating.

Digit: Grr... I'm a cute old codger.

That's right, he's an elder. Imagine my frownie face.

Digit: Gud hoomin. Stare into mah eyez. I r hypnocat!

Digit: O hai ceiling cat. Thanx fur thiz place. It's kewl. kthxbai.

Haha! Finally!

My sentiments exactly, Royal.

Beans: Oh hai, old dood!

It's cool; they're just playing.

Rice didn't even bother to wait for company.

Sunday rolled around, and Royal still hadn't met another two bolt match. He even visited the cemetery (which now has a church for weddings!) where he ran into Lilly Do. I might have to settle with her as it's a good, solid one bolt pairing.

He doesn't seem to mind the prospect. But for shame! In the church! Where's Crumplebottom when you need her?

Penguin: Don't mind me, I'm just trying to use the sidewalk THAT YOU'RE BLOCKING!

Danni Charming decided to walk by with Piggy the cat. Danni stuck around after being greeted; Miss Piggy didn't.

We'll close this week with a shot of a blonde townie that Royal has no chemistry with. Another frownie face.

Hopefully you can find someone with two bolts for Royal. He is quite handsome.
Also, I love the kitties, they are so cute. I need more pets in my BaCC. :)
untidyfanuntidyfan on May 30th, 2011 02:43 am (UTC)
I hope so, too. With the population at 96, I can afford to wait, but I'm so eager to start the next generation of this challenge!

Mara was kind enough to extract Bean (Beans here), and I wanted to include her ASAP. Just need a pet shop for New Jennerica now!

Ha, Lily's name should have been Lilly Do Anything, how perfectly inappropriate. They may only have one bolt but wow, what a story to tell the grand-kids!
untidyfanuntidyfan on May 30th, 2011 03:34 am (UTC)
Ha! Maybe I will get them together, just so they can embarrass their kids with their tales!

Rice and Bean are great names for cats, I just have to say and they are both completely adorable! Digit is wonderful as well, amusing old feline that he is. :D

Hitting females with a football is really not the way to go towards wooing them, Royal. Tsk. :p But I guess something is working as he manages to get with Lilly, in the church of all places, which is rather funny. Heh.

But hopefully someone will come along later that will suit him.

I do really like how you are doing various challenges within the BACC.
untidyfanuntidyfan on May 31st, 2011 04:59 am (UTC)
Thanks! Beans was named Bean in Mara's 'hood, so I couldn't resist adding Rice to the mix. Digit is an awesome kitty. I just hate I can't breed him.

I got a kick out of them in the church. I've attached a BV neighborhood, in hopes of some suitable townies for him. But just in case, he can marry Lilly.

Thank you! Glad you're enjoying them.

Yay, Awesimsauce! The Blue Generation is kind of boring because they have no specific goals, so it's nice to do it within a BACC where you can find something for them to aspire to.

The cats are so cute. <3 There are few things more annoying than adopting a pet to breed and then finding it's an elder, though. 8| Been there. Good luck with the kittens, though!

I hope Royal finds a partner soon. :C I had the same problem with my Awesimsauce founder... though she didn't do it in a church. :O
untidyfanuntidyfan on May 31st, 2011 05:16 am (UTC)
I'm dying for Royal to find a mate because I can't wait for generation purple! It's a good thing I'm not very religious, otherwise I'd be terribly offended.

I love Rice & Beans, and I can't wait to see how their kittens look. I'm sad about Digit's age, not only because I can't have his cute big eyes pass on to another generation, but because he's not going to be around a long time.

lol i love your cat commentary!
untidyfanuntidyfan on May 31st, 2011 05:20 am (UTC)
Thanks! I was a little nervous the humor wouldn't come through. My family tends to narrate our cats' thoughts, and more often than not, they think like Rice does.

Such kitty cuteness <3333
untidyfanuntidyfan on May 31st, 2011 05:21 am (UTC)
Thank you! If it weren't for them, I think this update would be about ten pictures!
Deeasaria_deea on June 2nd, 2011 03:57 pm (UTC)
Hehe that cats are hilarious! But they're not alone, lol Go go penguin!
untidyfanuntidyfan on June 5th, 2011 07:23 am (UTC)
Thanks! I was worried about the cat jokes. I'm glad people are finding them amusing. Penguin seemed so perturbed by having to walk around Royal. Not that I can blame her!

No twobolters for you, my silly sim? Why? Why! are you so picky?
(And no. Im will not break up the family of so and so because its the only sim you have bolts with)
Yes, I do recognise this. Very annoying, particularly when you have another family where a sim even has a billion threebolters (for me) to choose from.
On the other hand. Isnt this the reason why we play sims. The triumph! When it finally falls into place!
And thankfully hes a male. He can reproduce even as an elder ;)
And speaking of elder. Isnt it the same with pets as well? And Digit was male?
At least I have succesfully bred elder (male) pets.
Eager for new BACC entry from you is
/gulhare :)
untidyfanuntidyfan on June 5th, 2011 07:32 am (UTC)
I don't get what Royal's trouble is, really I don't. I've attached a BV hood, in hopes he finds an eligible gal to marry. I'm so grateful elder males have some fertility into elderhood, otherwise I'd panic.

I'm not sure about elder male pets reproducing. I don't think I got the option, but I really didn't pay attention since he was an elder. Maybe his relationships with the family weren't high enough.

I ran into a minor setback playing the last new family in the rotation. I was captioning the pictures for them when I realized I forgot a pet's name. Went back in game to find out, and the family info in neighborhood view didn't even show it. Apparently, I didn't save when I exited the household and was back to Tuesday. Had to replay, but it turned out better than the first time.
frostwyrm666frostwyrm666 on June 7th, 2011 09:29 pm (UTC)
I hope you only forgot saving, I had this once as a first sign of a really borked hood *sigh*
It would be a pity. Your BACC is so interesting, I read all the parts on one evening.
untidyfanuntidyfan on June 7th, 2011 11:06 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that was the case, like 95 percent sure. I have lots of back-ups, too, and the most recent was around the time of Victor, so I should be ok.

ETA: Thanks for your concerns and the compliment!

The church woohoo? Yep, kinda. But, it is only used for weddings, so maybe that's a little better?
Simlilisimlili on August 18th, 2011 09:56 am (UTC)
Hardly, I'm afraid they'll burn in hell no matter what, now :p
