Come back to the family to find…
Brindle! What the hell. We didn’t raise you to be an NPC.
Brindle: I’ve barely been raised at all.
I realized that we didn’t have a space for Brindle to sleep, so I converted the empty room we had downstairs into a room for Blue. Because she’s the oldest so she gets her own room.
… this was meant to be a picture of two embarrassed lumps but it became a picture of one embarrassed lump and a child being eaten by a bed.
I thought that little lamp was supposed to protect against such things.
Lamp: lol idk.
And now Blue is merging into Nat. Great. Good to know we’re getting into the Halloween spirit around here.
… I got everyone into bed, and they were just starting to get up and have breakfast. A normal, family breakfast.
Game: You got an acheivement!! 8D The Circle of Life! 8D Time to celebrate!!! 8D
can u shut up and let me mourn my pixel guy in peace??
This interrupted breakfast.
Avahi: If I don’t look it’s not happening.
Brindle: Hey, what’s for break–
… what the hell, Nat?
Death: OH, THIS IS MUCH BETTER. EVERYTHING’S LESS AWKWARD WHEN YOU’RE NOT RELATED TO THE FAMILY YOU’RE REAPING FROM.
Joaquin: This is HORRIBLE.
Avahi: Yeah, but it’s rather nice that we can mourn and eat at the same time.
You’re all awful. Especially you with the iPad.
Death: REAPING SOULS? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT.
Avahi: Please, Mr. Death! Don’t take my father away from me! It’s too soon.
Death: HE WAS OLD AS BALLS. DON’T TRY TO MAKE ME SENTIMENTAL; I’VE REAPED MY OWN DAUGHTER.
Avahi: … well, if you’re not going to save my dad, at least have some breakfast. I hope you don’t mind that I put it on the floor but I feel like if I accidentally touched your hand I’d die or something.
Brindle: GRAMPA! *sob*
Okay Avahi’s not up to it right now and Joaquin is right there but could we… theoretically… have Death children?
In looking up information on this I found this article which answered my question. I recommend reading it.
The answer is that we can’t woohoo with the reaper by normal methods. I wonder if you could use cheats or mods somehow…
Avahi: Dad, you’re coming back as a ghost, right?
If he does, I don’t think he can do that just yet. I’ve never had a ghost in this game so we’ll have to see.
The kids are… adjusting.
Brindle: I was gonna work on my aspiration, but now I don’t feel up to it. : (
Blue: Speak for yourself.
Blue: I’m channeling this pain into my ART.
She topped her aspiration around this point.
It’s a big adjustment all around.
Avahi: Are you sure you’re alright, Mom?
Nat: Yeah. He was kind of an ass at the end. : /
Altai: Hey can I use your Netflix to watch–
Avahi: Altai, Dad’s dead.
Altai: Oh shit! I’ll, uh… I’ll watch Stranger Things later, then.
Baringo: Hey, I finished my aspiration too.
Kid: So… who’s your favorite character? A lot of people like Eleven, but I’m…
Blue: Kid. You’re here as aspiration fodder. I don’t even know your name. Why would I want you to talk to me.
I sent Avahi over to meet the newest addition to the family.
Avahi: I’m not sure whose house this is or how this kid is related to me.
Oh, yeah. Joelle’s parents are hanging out in the bathroom.
… for some reason.
Kalyn: Should we take care of the wriggler?
Kiki: I heard Avahi come in, so it’s her job now.
The real reason I sent Avahi over was to test out her aspiration perks, to be honest. She can now make people clean, formalize, go to sleep, or leave. Like a bard from D&D but shittier.
Then I aged up Joelle because infants do nothing for me.
Avahi got invited to join a club and accepted. The leader of the club is this kid that insulted Kiki once.
Avahi: … why am I in a club run by a ten-year-old?
Max: I’m technically older than you.
The kids are still beat up from the loss of their grandfather, so they’ve taken to consoling one another. Brindle’s not left out, he just had a hug.
Nat: I know losing grampa was hard. Do you want to talk about it?
Baringo: *suddenly pissed for some reason*
Baringo left for school pissed off, and Blue came back from school pissed off. Some kid had a bib in his lunchbox and she picked it up when he dropped it.
It’s her birthday anyway so those elementary schoolers can fuck right off.
Blue grew up with the Cheerful trait. Cheerful.
Blue: I suddenly regret everything that came before puberty.
Her aspiration is the big family one so… not much she can do about that until she ages up.
But here she is, cute as a button.
… remember that chemistry station I got a while back?
Brindle: … I took a calculated risk, but, boy, I’m bad at math. And chemistry, apparently. How could they make such dangerous chemicals available to children?
Please move away so you don’t die.
Baringo didn’t catch on fire, but Avahi did while trying to put it out. That’s how I learned about the extinguish self interaction. Which is good because no one else was gonna do it.
Dina: Wow. On fire while you have guests in the house? Rude.
Shut your hell, Dina. I don’t remember inviting you over.
