    what's bishop's actual name again, toast :thonking:

    UPDATE PART 1:

    The sink broke in the deviant house and flooded the kitchen. Nobody could be arsed dealing with it (the plumber was called the next morning).

    [​IMG]

    Uh...

    [​IMG]

    UHHHHH

    [​IMG]

    haHAA

    So I added Alma, Gibs, and Carlyn. Alma went right into medicine and began moonlighting in writing, which seems pretty close. Carlyn got a job in a local diner and (unlike the other two, who were put in the socialite household) moved in with the activists. Gibs... began peddling drugs to children on street corners. Or something. I've yet to find somewhere I can squeeze in a bar for him to work in.

    Zeljko's bit of skirt joined the vigilante gang run by Yuri McJankovitch, which is actually getting quite sizeable as of press time. While we're on the topic of male promiscuity, Mossman found out that Nordson was seeing several women other than herself, and went into a jealous rage. She was seen cat-fighting some local lass half her age, followed by what must have been a ploy to make him jealous, as she was seen heading to the local shitty dance club with Rick V at 4 in the morning.

    At this point my game went concerningly Skynet. Anyone here who plays Stellaris will probably get the image, but this was some real ghost signal shit; every TnB sim household, except the one I was direct controlling at the time, autonomously headed for a vacant lot by the beach early the next morning (about 1). They all did this at the same time and all stood about the place in their cliques for about an hour or two, then began migrating home again. I think this is because i forgot to reset the lot type after trying to squeeze a bar in there, so it was zoned as a bar but was actually just waste ground, but it was pretty unnerving all the same (especially combined with the way some of them seem to verge on self-awareness as it is).

    By this point, Alma had been assigned a progression role by NRAAS. Apparently her lot in life is to try and seduce, then dump, as many younger women as possible. I think NRAAS progression sets town roles by lifetime goal, or maybe a combination of lifetime goal and traits, but it's been worrying accurate for most of the sims it's affected so far. In any case, Alma's first target, as you might've seen at the beginning of the post, was Sam.

    Back to the pervert pantheon, Jane (who somehow manages 4 kids at once with ease) was sitting with hubby, having a pleasant chat while Ash watched the telly.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am a little concerned exactly how Tom thinks Jane is flirting when she's "talking about cats". It sounds fucking accurate, though.

    [​IMG]

    Well that conversation turned pretty quickly (bonus: Ash's expression, lmao)

    This then happened, causing Ash to get rebuked by a few of the others:

    [​IMG]

    Somehow, in our strange and frankly terrifying parallel universe, low-rate loanshark Bruce McJankovitch moves in the same social circles as Dr. Arne Magnusson. Apparently the two were seen bonding over alternative methods of collecting interest. Magnusson moonlights as a petty crim, but Bruce is in it full-time.

    The exhibitionists' telly blew up, rudely interrupting Ash and Tom as they watched footy and talked sportsball, since the "cat" lady had gone to take a nap. Fin ended up repairing it for them while Tom went to chat with Quinn down the street.

    [​IMG]

    Alma ran into Some Difficulties, in the mean time:

    [​IMG]

    So did Zeljko, just his were a different kind. ACAB. Wonder if Barney was the officer involved?

    [​IMG]

    Joining the swelling ranks of the vigilantes was one Gorbo Freedo, seen patrolling the mean streets with Iosef Gruyev. Back home, the science team was in disarray; Magnusson pissed Eli off so much about something that the latter packed up his shit and left, moving down the street. Harry update: last seen slacking at "work", if you could call his attempts at being a musician such a thing. Puppetmaster Stefano got beaten at chess by a local.

    Quinn bought a secondhand bike rather than a car, which sounds dead on, and then another dramatic household drama erupted.

    [​IMG]

    Part 2 can come later.

    0900: Cassie Sullivan seen flying up the street at a great rate of knots, wearing a ball gown. Who even knows.

    Meanwhile, in the home of hellspawn, Tom caught the flu and then rapidly sneezed all over Fin. Now both of them have it, just in time for the latter's birthday (she's aging up to adult). Some of the popular kids came over to visit in advance of Fin's party the next day.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Worryingly, Jane and Alma began telling each other increasingly risque jokes while Spooky sperged about guinea pigs at Nordson. Tom ducked out for a smoke, probably as much to get away from his wife's bullshit as to soothe his cravings.

    Incidentally, Fin and Ash's kid doesn't like Tom at all. I don't know why. Oh, and he has a name.

    Poor Lyons, meanwhile, fell victim to Magnusson's bullshit:

    [​IMG]

    Alma worked on her book for a bit, then ended up having a chat with Tom while Jane tended to the kids. Ash and Fin decided conversation is overrated.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Literally five seconds later, one of them somehow offended the other and they were in a standoff. I really do worry, sometimes. This is too close.

    [​IMG]

    Seeing this, and in yet another display of uncanny accuracy, Spooky decided to try win Fin's affections with flowers. She shut him down immediately, poor lad.

    [​IMG]

    Jane then began spreading gossip, first to Ash, then Danny...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ah, yes. Earlier in the day, Sam was spotted arm-in-arm with some local bird.

    Needless to say, Hothead was not happy at all - look at that relationship bar:

    [​IMG]

    ...Nor was Alma, once Jane (who seems to hear rumours almost as soon as they're started) tactfully told her:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Good job, Jane.

    Fin then made up with Ash, then about ten seconds later kicked off at Ash again, as Spooky distracted himself with darts. Jane joined in, and predictably won without trying.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Elsewhere, Diane Chen and Mossman were spotted screaming at each other over who Danny loves more. Both are older than him by at least a decade. The man himself was by now passed out on Jane's couch, while Spooky amused himself by teaching Rosa to play the xylophone. Alma started casing the joint like she was planning to rob it, no doubt judging the hell out of the decor.

    Half a week late, Jane finally let her feelings out about the Fin snogging incident, while in the bathroom potty-training Rosa:

    [​IMG]

    She cried her fucking eyes out for about ten seconds, then got over it and went off to play more darts with Spooky and Alma. Winning apparently not being enough for her, she spent most of the game trickshotting darts like some sort of less technologically advanced Annie Oakley. Spooky went to sleep on the sofa, Nordson having woken up from his nap and now chatting with Ash over dinner:

    [​IMG]

    Tom went to bed while Jane and Fin sorted out the kids. Alma busted out the laptop again and got writing. Fin then engaged in a conversation with Danny, talking to him "about Huxey's problems" while holding Huxley. Good shit, I'm sure he'll turn out fine. Jane finally went to bed, Spooky left (now 0300) and Danny and Alma hung around.

    Down the road, a friend of Carley's (a magician, apparently) moved in to take the bed previously occupied by Gibs. Then this happened:

    [​IMG]

    By 0400 Alma and Danny left, though Spooky had been hanging around outside and ended up bailing up Danny for a while. When Danny finally went home, Spooky... stood around a bit peering through Jane's bedroom window. :thonking: He then began freaking out.

    Ash got a job as a teacher, which is a big worry. Lockpicking and hotwiring class, I guess.

    Next update: Fin becomes an "adult". Allegedly.
