How to Defriend your Friends
Welcome back to the Fallens. Last chapter was about a month ago, and to make up for it, this chapter is twice as long. Double the pleasure, double the fun.
I could have sworn I made that joke before. Anyway, there will also be a little surprise at the end of this chapter as well. So here we go!
Last chapter there was about 50 pictures of nothing really. The family went to the club and
twerked nothing and by the end of it, Kindness got arrested.
Kindness: “I called the cops when I realized I stayed at the club way past my curfew. Oh, I sure hope my parents don’t ground me too long for staying out in town at 11:05!”
I really think I hate you, kid.
Sorry, I was too lazy this chapter to open Photoshop. Or at least invest in a lighting mod or something. Nighttime in Hidden Springs is brutal.
Kindness: “Before you ground me forever dad, I want you to know that I turned myself in willingly to the cops. I even called the police on myself. I’m so sorry for breaking the law and ignoring curfew, I didn’t know what I was thinking! I accept my punishment fully and hope that one day, you and mom will forgive me for what I’ve done.”
You’re grounded for three weeks.”
Kindness: “WHAT, I BEGGED FOR FORGIVENESS AND EVERYTHING”
Gabriel: “I BROKE THE TUB?! OH NO, I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER USING THE TUB!! WHAT DO I DOOOOOO”
Anyone remember the bone maid of ours? Still hopscotching.
Betel: “It’s so nice to finally have a friend to hopscotch with! I’ll never forget this day, that I finally got someone to play with me! :)”
Horse: “I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING”Kindness: “I suddenly remembered something, brother! I’m grounded! I’m not supposed to leave the house at all. So I suppose I better not go to school…. take good notes for me, will you please :)”
Happiness: “Sigh… I knew I should have taken the fall for Gabriel over the tub incident. That would have been the nice thing for me to do… then I wouldn’t have go to school either…”
Why does the game feel the need to do that? You’re grounded, but you can’t go to school, so you fail, and you keep getting in trouble?? LOGIC, EA?
Kindness: “Gee, that’s swell! Thanks so much mom!”
Kindess: “Wha-where’s the logic in that, mom?! I was “skipping” because I was grounded!”
SEE WHAT I MEAN
Kindness: “Thanks but no thanks. I’m going to go fishing today, after all this trouble you guys are causing me, I need something to help me clear my head and think straight again!”
Yo asshole, she already left for work because you’re stupid self was making her late. You won, go play stupid somewhere else.
Happiness: “My big bro is teaching me how to play football! I think I got the ball thing downpat!”
When both of you don’t go to school in the morning because you passed out in the floor and then you both fail your way into a four week grounding, don’t come crying to me.
Well this is what happens when the live-in house keeper takes to playing hopscotch in the backyard for the rest of eternity.
Betel: “I’M GOING FOR THE RECORD”
Eunice: “Alright, but remember that after this it’s your turn to help the kids do their homework tonight.”
Evalin: “Like I give a shit.”
Eunice: “You’re right, we’ve never helped them do a damn thing.”
Betel: “Sounds about right.”
Envy: “I came to hang out with you Betel, but you are hogging that fucking mat like no one’s business. Oh well, the trampoline’s been neglected lately.”
Jealousy: “So little brother, our mother’s legacy days are about to run it’s course. As you know, being the most evil of the two of us, I am going to be the star of the show, and you know what that makes you, right?”
Envy: “Dead? You’re going to kill me when you take over, aren’t you?”
Evalin: “Dayum, I’m looking fine as a fucking wine, sexy as ever there Evalin, girl! Going to get some more charisma today, going to get that promotion over my sister and then HOLY SHIT WHAT THE HELL IS THAT”
Horse: “How door? Horse got in, but door happen! Door mean! Help horse!”
I swear, I turned the game on and then suddenly BAM, a horse stuck in the bathroom. The walls are completely closed all the way around and I have no other idea how it could have gotten in there, other than fall in through the roof from an over passing plane, burrowing in from the floor, or slamming into the walls so hard that he became Shadowcat for all of three seconds.
Horse: “After this kind of trauma I’M going to be the one that needs to go fishing to clear my head!”
No one was really doing anything at the house, so I followed the horse to it’s next destination.
Horse: “How do?! Pasture confuse horse! How pasture work?!”
Yeah, that horse is going to die.
WHY CAN’T YOU FUNCTION FOR MORE THAN THREE MINUTES WITHOUT ME HAVING TO BABYSIT YOUR ASS
I hope you get a papercut.
LOOK LIKE SHE WANTS TO GO ON A DATE WITH YOU
Apparently I left the wall down in the bathroom still…
Angela: “Why, aren’t you such a sweet little fellow. I’d hate to have to escort you from my house. How would you like to live with us, little puppy? My life has been a little lonely since Seraph passed away.”
Stray: “I shouldn’t really… I need to go “home”…”
Mmm, nah, you’re staying dog. I like you.
Ophaniel: “Angela said that I’m too cute and fluffy to look fierce. I’m going to damn well try to though.”
She’s right though, it’s not working for you, Ophaniel.
Kindness: “I know what you’re thinking mom, and I want to just say I’m so sorry. I didn’t think that field trip was right for me, and I stayed behind at school to continue a proper education. That’s all I did, mother! I am just trying to further myself in my future career and push myself. I’m going to be big one day.”
Angela: “Oh your father told me to punish you when you did crazy things as a child. But I didn’t want to be the cruel parent! I really didn’t! I should have listened to your father when he suggested five minute time outs, I really should have!”
Kindness: “WHOA mom, that’s harsh”
Angela: “YOUR SON CUT SCHOOL TO SIT ON THE SIDEWALK AND READ NONFICTIONS, CONGRADULATIONS LIAM”
A dog ball. For the new dog.
Jealousy: “I DON’T WANT A DOG. I WANTED A TASMANIAN DEVIL! NO ONE IN THIS FAMILY LISTENS TO ME”
Evalin: “Hold your shit, we have witnesses…”
Fabulous repairman midget: “Oh, it’s just little old me… get it, because I’m little and old? I’m a funny guy.”
Yeah well, I sense some evil going on through you. Grow a neck already.
Liam: “Just like the wonderful mother I know my wife is.”
Angela: “-And you have a fabulous afternoon, Envy, and there’s plenty of dinner in the kitchen whenever you get hungry!”
Envy: “No offense Aunt Angie, but I don’t really care.”
Angela: “Nonsense! All growing boys like yourself need a good auntie to look after you! And I love you and your sister, don’t ever forget that!”
Envy: “Fuck my life.”
Angela: “You know what, let’s throw a campaign party! Let’s see who’s in our friends list… hello how would you like to… aren’t you a little young to be talking about that kind of stuff with me, Eduardo?”
Eduardo: “How would you like to do that kind of stuff with me for my 18th birthday, Mrs. Fallen?”
Angela: “Maybe you shouldn’t show up for my party tonight, Eduardo.”
Envy: “Whoa, slow down little lady? Why such the big hurry?”
The girl was given a makeover, but it didn’t help.
I felt that since Angela now has a dog, it’s only fair to give Evalin’s side of the family a pet too, especially since this is technically Angela’s second. So while I was hunting around town for a stray to force into my family since I’m too impatient to work with one to move in and too impatient to make Evalin wake up to order one through the adoption service, I accidentally adopted Betelgeuse into the family instead.
Betel: “But I’m not a cat! DAMMIT! Why would you finally get me to stop playing hopscotch for this crap! Sigh, now I’m hungry.”
I don’t really need another unnessesary to babysit in this family, so I force killed her and had to re-add her to the family.
Mephistopheles: “This is how being a cat works, correct? Curse this inferior earth body, I must possess something much more superior… but first… a 9 hour cat nap…”
From being deleted through the Buy Mode?
Betel: “Why would you ruin the allusion like that?”
The first thing she actually does is her FREAKING JOB
Betel: “Hopscotch? What’s THAT?”
Much, much better, Betel.Happiness: “I don’t like being the barer of bad news, Envy… I don’t even like being the barer of news… but you smell terrible. Even Gabriel thinks that you should have taken a bath before he destroyed the tub.”
Gabriel: “Smells like a dead rat that rolled in a toasted dumpster with a side of -HEY, I still don’t remember breaking that tub, Happiness.”
Envy: “Don’t hate on my new cologne, dude.”
Happiness: “Unless that new cologne is to repel people, then I’m not going to hate.”
Envy: “That’s EXACTLY what it’s supposed to do. How did you know.”
Envy: “I think you need to be refined in the smell of high class cologne, Happiness. Here, a couple spritz of my Axe: Zubat Repellant Super Strength and you’ll be keeping away crazy Aunt Angie just like me!”
Happiness: “COUGH COUGH, please stop Envy! It’s too early in the morning to start choking me to death!”
Happiness: “I’ve lost my appetite now.”
Liam: “Is… is Angela sure that this dog had it’s rabies shots?”
He’s growing at your newly empty bowl, Liam. Not you. Maybe if you were neater than THIS, he wouldn’t be so highly offended so instantly. Clean up, you slob.
Well this is a new one. Become enemies with one of your many best friends for a promotion at work. An opportunity for one of the nicest people in the world. Can she do it? I sure as hell am making her, anything for a promotion. I mean, look where it’s gotten Evalin.
Angela: “I’d hate to have to defriend Andrew… But the council has decided that we must cut all ties with him… I don’t even know how to be mean to someone. Evalin gave me some pointers… ok, she threw the milk carton at me this morning because it went bad, but I think I could do that? Oh, can’t I just let him down without hurting his feelings?”
No, this is the sims, girl. Gotta be BRUTAL.
Evalin: “Andrew, I… oh gumballs, I can’t… Andrew wait, I need to say… oh, he just walked away. He must be on his way to the bathroom, poor thing, bless his soul. I’ll just wait here for him until he gets back.”
Well it was worth a shot.
Evalin: “Thanks for the promotion, babe. I knew sleeping with superiors was going to get me somewhere, and now look. I’m Governor. And it’s all thanks to you and your neediness for my affection. But we have GOT to do something with your old woman smell now. Ugh.”
Genevieve: “I hope this is worth jeopardizing my whole career… oh the Clinton flashbacks are happening again…”
Davy Jones: “Can’t a ole’ sea dog rest his weary pegleg wid’ me retirement vessel? She be hearty and small but perfect for a ole’ scallawag like me.”
I don’t… Maybe someone should call a cop or something…
Andrew: “HUMPH, a tool of the man! I always knew you were an ass kisser to those big cats at the Capital! Don’t worry about our friendship, Angela, because I don’t want to be friends with a poli-tick like you anyway!”
Andrew: “You don’t scare me, go make your own damn sandwich!”
Angela: “‘Do it or or someone is getting drowned tonight! I mean it! I need my damn sandwich now!‘”
Andrew: “You can’t even talk to me from your ownself, you let someone else do the talking for you! Screw your sister! Screw your bosses and screw you Angela!”
Andrew: “Whoa, Angela… channeling the wrong kind of anger over here…”
Angela: “BRING HOME ANOTHER FUCKING F ON YOUR REPORT CARD AGAIN AND TELL ME YOU ARE BETTERING YOURSELF BY STAYING HOME AND PLAYING CATCH WITH RENAULD AGAIN AND I’LL PERSONALLY FEED YOU TO A PACK OF FUCKING STARVING VAMPIRES MYSELF YOU PRETENTIOUS LITTLE SHIT, FUCKING A”
Angela, we are defriending Andrew, not letting out your repression…
Andrew: “I’M NOT YOUR FUCKING SON, ANGELA”
Angela: “IT WILL APPLY TO YOU TOO ANDREW IF YOU DON’T GET OUT OF MY FACE, DAMN”
And that’s how Angela defriends people.
Angela: “Ah, it did. I’m so sorry you had to be my outlet, Andrew, but that felt so good to get off my chest. Thank you so much for helping me.”
Andrew: “That’s fine, it’s what I was here for, always a pleasure to help you achieve your goals dear.”
Angela: “So nice, I’ll be gracious to you forever. We’d be friends forever if it weren’t for my work. Oh good man, Andrew, thanks again.”
Pfft, good sims. Even when they’re mean, they’re nice.
Adriana: “I was wondering where you were dad. Should… should I call the police?”
Adriana: “Yeah… yes I am…”
Angela: “Well I have a boy I would love for you to meet! Not the little prickhead with the yellow shirt, for the record. I have another son I’d love for you to get to know!”
Andrew: “God, she’s hot.”
You can go home Andrew. Thanks.
Genevieve: “But I thought… it was about time your wife knew about… you know. Me and you.”
Evalin: “Shit no. Get out.”
Eunice: “If it’s not a sandwich for me, I don’t ca-WHAT THE SHIT IS THIS?! WHEN DID WE GET A DOG?! YOU ASSHOLES KNOW I’M ALLERGIC”
He’s been in the house for days, what’s wrong with you Eunice
Eunice: “Does that wisdom involve you knowing how to make dinner, chop chop on that, Liam.”
Liam: “Oh, who knew old age was so achy…”
Eunice: “Liam in pain, now THAT’S something to celebrate! Woo!”
Liam: “Would it kill you to be nice for once?”
Kindness: “I am do math stuff.”
Angela: “Ah, this salad is the highlight of my day. Nothing can upset me now. Life is good.”
Genevieve: “I’m just here to break your shit right now. Nothing much.”
I think someone is pissed off.
And then a beautiful thing happened. I kept hearing the stupid sounds that sims make when they are absent minded and trying to think, and it kept going on and on in a continuous loop for a couple of minutes, and I found out it was coming from Kindness, who, even though he stopped trying to think in the kitchen, kept playing the sounds that accompanied his stupid.
Kindness: “DUUUUUUGHH, DUUR DOOOY, UUUUUUUUR”
It didn’t last too long, but it was beautiful.
The political career was perfect for her after all.
Also, I like how there is a scanner for a left handed print on the right side of the door. They say that ages ago, left handed people were in the same category as evil, criminal activity, witchcraft, etc. I found that very fitting. Good one, EA. I think. I’m left handed and even I was impressed by it. Somehow.
And we are about to wrap this chapter up with a triple birthday. It’s time for our founders to have their final birthdays into elderhood, and there is a third birthday, a third cake that we shall get to last…
Also, I like Sidney’s pants. I didn’t pick her outfit, but I like it nonetheless.
Angela: “I think I’ll go first! I’ve had a great life, and I just want to say, I love all of you, I love my family, and I love you boys, Happiness and Kindness, you are the greatest things in my life.”
Happiness: “Hahaha, mom’s all corny and stuff.”
Ella: “You shouldn’t laugh at your mother, you know.”
Eunice: *Not giving a damn*
Evalin: “Wish for me to win over you in our political race to the top! That would be super.”
Angela: “I… don’t think that will be fair Evalin. But I will. Because I love you.”
Evalin: “Hee hee, hurty hurty! Now this is a great party. Good job, Angela.”
Angela: “That’s your cake, dear sister. Remember, we’re twins!”
Evalin: “Goooood. Exactly what I wanted.”
Jealousy: “MOMMY, IT HURTS”
Evalin: “YES! My birthday is just getting better and better!”
Ella: “I… no longer want this piece of cake…”
Jealousy: “Yeah mom! You are old and gross and stuff! Now you will die soon and I shall inherit the earth!”
Evalin: “Go screw yourself with a cactus, Jealousy!”
Kindness: “Everyone excited?! It’s now time for the main event! ME!”
No one really cares. OH, someone does, here comes Scott in his little duck floatie. Hope he doesn’t drown in his cake slice.
Evalin: “Fuck that, I’m out.”
Angela: “I want you to know that we are all here for you son. And we all love you. Even when you do get on our bad side from time to time. Yay…”
Happiness: “HAH, mom really doesn’t care that much!”
Angela: “But I do. Yay…”
Jealousy: *Would rather be screwing that cactus right about now*
Liam: *Honestly has no idea where he is right now*
We come to this moment, the first adult of the second generation. Both of Angela’s boys are up for heirship, but who knows which one yet. If Kindness is the next heir, this is the end of Angela’s reign. But if Happiness is heir, then she’s got a couple more days left in my control? So who shall it be?!
First up for heir grab is Kindness. Just to recap, he is an absent minded light sleeper, and therefore was HORRIBLE to keep in a bed as a child. Still is hard to get him to go to bed. He’s also a technophobe, so when he’s not sleeping when he’s supposed to, he likes to stand in the living room and stomp his feet because Eunice is watching Sports Tonight on television. He’s also an angler. He likes yellow, vegetarian salmon and R&B music. If he gets heirship, he will instantly lead the next chapter as new torch holder, and Angela will retire.
Next up is Happiness Fallen, the youngest of the two brothers. He is an easily impressed artist, who is into saving the environment by being eco-friendly. He is also inappropriate, so sometimes he pulls pranks and gets his IF in trouble. He likes the color aqua, cheese steak, and his favorite music is songwriter music, which I looked that up just now to find out what exactly that was. I think he’s a Taylor Swift fan.
Happiness: “I’d cry on her guitar any day, if you know what I mean. Literally. I’d cry all over her guitar with her. Her lyrics move me so much. I have cried to her beautiful music enough to fill a broken bathtub.”
Gabriel: “To this day I still don’t think I broke that tub, Happiness. …Happiness??”
ANYWAY, vote is up here, HERE HERE HERE, and will be up for ten days from the day this chapter was published. Go vote, and vote carefully. Or don’t. Vote blind to the wind if you want, I don’t really care how you vote, just do it.
Angela: *Already losing her eyelashes to the stress*
