More Jodie. :)
Her face inspires me.
Like I did with the YAs, I went through the sim bin to see who I could makeover and add to the main hood as townies for eventual spouse fodder/gene pool interest.
Welcome to my uberhood Jodie, Matthew, Julien and Jason! (and sorry, Jessica Picaso, but you had to go. I’ll let Matthew keep your grave and you can haunt his second wife).
Can’t believe there was ever a time that I thought Jodie Larson was ugly. She looks like a cross between Eva Green and Liv Tyler.
Developments for the Cordials, in bullet form:
S: Are you pregnant too, and just not showing yet?
L: Oh, gosh no.
S: What a relief, there’s at least two of us in the h-
L: But my brother is.
S: Ha! You’re such a kidder. I like you, Lola!
P: Vidcund, I have something rather distressing to tell you.
V: You got probed again, I already know.
P: It’s not that. While I was up there… in short, there’s no way Nervous has been abducted by the aliens.
V: HOW DO YOU KNOW
P: I just do. Trust me.
V: Then where is he? And what am I going to tell Madam Olive?
P: I’m not sur- Madam Olive??
V: We have to find him. What are the other scenarios?
P: There’s only one in my mind. He wouldn’t just up and leave Strangetown willingly. It wasn’t the aliens, but I think he has been abducted.
V: Then we need to find out who’s done it. And why.
HOLY MOLY IT ALL HAPPENED AT THE CURIOUS HOUSE THIS ROTATION.
P: OH NO. Oh I know that sound. Please don’t let it be- aaaAAAAHHHHHH NOT AGAINNNNNN
He was returned the next day with a very familiar pain in the backside.
L: OMG YEAH this is awesome! Good to have you home again, Pasc.
V: UGH why do they keep picking you and also why are they SO LOUD JEEZ
The next day, while Vidcund and Pascal were at work, Lazlo and Cosmo did some cloudwatching when a satellite fell from the sky ~ironically~ and crushed Lazlo right in front of his little nephew. And as kids apparently cannot plead for a loved one (WTF Maxis…) Lazlo was left for dead, and Cosmo spent the rest of the afternoon alone and traumatised.
Needless to say, Pascal and Vidcund were devastated. Pascal took it upon himself to use up almost all of their savings in order to resurrect him. After all, he and Vidcund don’t really get along and Pascal finds him so tiresome to live with, not to mention high-maintenance. He needed Lazlo and his genius around.
What’s Vidcund doing while Pascal’s making a deal with the Reaper? Why, kissing himself in the mirror of course.
The resurrection is a success, and Lazlo is restored.
P: YESSSS! Welcome back, brother. We used up every single penny we had to bring you back.
L: Uh huh. Thanks. Time to get back to science.
Cosmo was extremely happy to see his uncle again. Don’t tell Vidcund, but Uncle Lazlo is definitely his favourite.
Cosmo is certainly one of the Curious boys.
Cosmo has a birthday, and ages up into a very neat and active sim (with ZERO playful points). I really don’t like the tiny/non-existent noses.
Anyway, the brothers threw him a party. Most of Strangetown was there.
Olive: Viddy baby, are you and your brothers still searching the realms of space for my son?
Vidcund: Oh, yes ma’am. I’m not having much luck summoning the aliens, though. But don’t fear, I will never stop trying. I just know he’s up there.
Circe: It’s just terrible to have his disappearance plaguing this town!
Olive: If anyone can get my son back from the aliens, it’s you Viddy.
Circe: Of course he can, Mrs Specter. [internally] I am amazing.
Another failed attempt to attract the aliens… another tantrum. Which leads to bright red aspiration failure.
How is it that all the ordinary things are always extra funny/dramatic/everything when they’re happening to Vidcund? I’ll probably never stop asking that question.
