Proof of My Wasted Time

Oh dang, it’s that time again.

Happy two-year anniversary to A Royal Prettacy.

I started this site exactly two years ago?  Man, this thing is older than I thought.  Time flies, doesn’t it?

 

Here are some pictures to celebrate.  They’re of the Teletubby triplets as teens.

Laa-Laa… though you can probably tell by the colors.

Po…

… and Dipsy.

It’s Just a Flesh Wound…

HALLO

 

I’M NOT DEAD, I SWEAR

I’ve been devoting all of my time and energy to Delirium and Daisies, my “writing” site.  It’s so much fun, and I love it.  But… I’ve also been neglecting my poor babies, the McColor ISBI and A Royal Prettacy.

Maybe I’ll update.

MAYBE.

Or at least show you some pictures of the kids as teens.  They’re gorgeous and it makes me sad.

McColor ISBI 3.1.5?

Oh hey there strangers.  I’m going on vacation for a little over a week, and I should probably just give you what I have.

Why am I so late on this?

It’s been a while.

I blame my computer.  I lost so much because of crashes and stupid things, so I’ve had to start over twice now.

Oh, and I got distracted by YouTube and sad movies.  I mean, come on.  You kinda have to have some recovery time for sad movies.

Screenshot-2398.jpg

That’s the tale of how the McColors ended up in Monte Vista!

It’s a nice town, I guess.

Screenshot-2399.jpg

So, uh, yeah.

“Hey, Dodger.  We found love through a reality television rip-off, so it’s gotta be worth something, right?”

Hey, they’re cute though.

Screenshot-2401.jpg

Um, would you mind burning somewhere else, please?

“PUT ME OUT OR I’LL SUE”

Well, you’re the one that’s loitering… on private property…

Plus, how will you sue if you’re dead?

Screenshot-2402.jpg

Wait… wait… WAIT.

Where are my pictures?

WHERE ARE MY FREAKING PICTURES?!

A pregnancy, this quickly?  That took four pictures!  I’m not that bad at storytelling, but… too fast, man.

Maybe because they never do anything interesting.

Screenshot-2403.jpg

We JUST put you out, lady.  Now you’ve done it again.

“I LIKE HOW IT FEELS WHEN THE FIRE TOUCHES MY SKIN”

Um… backing away slowly…

Screenshot-2406.jpg

“I’M PREGNANT!!!!!”

“You’re pregnant?!  That’s great!  Awfully fast, though.  Explain to me, Watcher, up there in the sky!  O Watcher, why do you suck at pictures?”

No.

Screenshot-2408.jpg

“YOU SUCK AT PICTURES”

Yes, I’ll admit it.  I don’t know what I was doing during that three-day pregnancy.

Screenshot-2409.jpg

It’s the basket, you know what that means…

Triplets.  Freaking triplets.

Captwer343ureCapt345345wureCapt345345eure

Whut even arr dese namees?!  you may ask.

Well, let me introduce this generation’s naming theme…

CHILDREN’S TV SHOWS!

Remember the family’s mission?  You know, to spread happiness and joy and rainbows?  Well, what could be happier than children’s TV shows?

The triplets are named after…

TELETUBBIES!

Man, teletubbies were practically  my life when I was little.

Their clothing colors correspond to the colors of their teletubbies.

Dipsy, the boy, is in green.

Po is in red.

Laa-Laa is in yellow.

Hydrangea’s Bachelorette Challenge: THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

It’s….

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!*

 

*Must be read to the tune of the actual song.  Guitar and all.

Screenshot-2380.jpg

That’s right, folks, this is it!  The last episode of Hydrangea’s Bachelorette Challenge!

It’s time for a celebration!  But not too much celebrating.  This is also a sad occasion.

Screenshot-2391.jpg

Dodger: “JUST TELL ME OR I MIGHT EXPLODE”

Calm down, I’m getting there.

Zea: *literally does not care*

So here’s the points breakdown.

Dodger won the reader poll, by the way.

Zea’s relationship with Hydrangea is at a points value of 31.98.  That’s added to his score.

Dodger’s relationship is 52.43 points.  That’s also added to his score.

Dodger: total of +65 from challenges

Zea: total of +42 from challenges

Dodger: 117.43

Zea: 73.98

That makes the winner…

Screenshot-2395.jpg

“… Dodger!  You’re the winner!  You’ve proved your worth by working hard in the challenges, and you’re quite the character!  Popular, too.  So… you’re the one I want.  Congrats!”

“… WHAT?!”

Screenshot-2392.jpg

“I’m sorry, Zea.  You’re a great guy, and you can still live in town if you want…”

“Hey, no hard feelings!  You’re welcome to watch vegetarian movies with me at my place… anytime!”

Screenshot-2396.jpg

“I already found someone new!  And she’s kinda hot!”

Hmm.  No comment.

Screenshot-2397.jpg

The end.

I just wanted to say… thanks so much!  You guys are great!

Hydrangea’s Bachelorette Challenge: Episode 5

Oh hey there, friends.  What’s up with you?

I’ve been all right.  Just started ballet classes… I like it, but I have no idea what I’m doing.

It’s all good.

So…

Screenshot-2367

Alright, let’s do this.

We left off with these three guys, all up for elimination.

Let’s start with Dodger…

Screenshot-2368.jpg

“Safe!  Congrats, you’ve lived another round.”

Next up is Basil…

Screenshot-2371

Sorry man, but you have to go.  Your score wasn’t very high, to be honest.

“What, you actually thought I wanted to be here?  Pfft, as if.”

Screenshot-2372.jpg

“Which means you get to stay, Zea!  Now take these flowers or I’ll stuff them down your throat, or your pants.  Whichever suits my mood.”

“Well, when you put it that way…”

Yes, Zea, accept those flowers.

He did.

Screenshot-2374.jpg

For this last round of challenges *cry* we’ll be doing three different challenges.  One’s really more of a bonus round, but whatever.  Whoever wins each challenge will get more points, and then whoever has the highest score at the end of it all… wins!  But I’ll tell you the winner next chapter…

The next challenge is a firewalk challenge.  Whoever turns back will lose the challenge.

Dodger: “OH NO OH NO OH NOOOOOO I SWEAR I DIE THIS TIME”

Screenshot-2375.jpg

You made it!

I didn’t think you would, you coward.

Screenshot-2376.jpg

Zea: “NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE”

Zea loses, Dodger wins… this time.

Screenshot-2378.jpg

Next is the trampoline challenge!

Whoever falls off first or stops jumping first…loses this challenge.

Screenshot-2381.jpg

“IS THIS WHAT DEATH FEELS LIKE 😦 ”

Sorry, buddy… but seriously, you lost both challenges.

Screenshot-2382.jpg

BONUS ROUND!

Each guy will be locked in a room with Hydrangea and Becca Simself.

+2 for every time you talk to Hydrangea, when YOU initiate the conversation, not when she does.  I want my guys to show a little initiative!

-1 for every mean interaction

Screenshot-2385.jpg

Wrong person, Zea.

Zea: “I LIKE BUTTERFLIES”

Becca: “Well, I don’t.  Ever heard of lepidopterophobia?”

Screenshot-2388.jpg

“You’re an idiot, and I don’t want to be near you or else your stupid might leak onto me!”

Screenshot-2386.jpg

Zea: “You’re so smart, Becca!”

I’m going to have to add a new rule:

-1 for talking to Becca Simself the whole time because GOOD GRIEF, ZEA

Screenshot-2390.jpg

Dodger’s turn!

“Um… what do I do?  What do I do?!”

Go talk to them!

Screenshot-2394.jpg

“Um… um… COMICS!”

Time’s up!

Zea’s score is 10.

Dodger’s score is 8.

Zea actually wins this round!

Screenshot-2379.jpg

Oh, don’t look so violated, Dodger.

It’s time for…

THE FINAL ELIMINATION!

*cue thunder and lightning*

Vote for your favorite guy… though the guy who wins the poll may not win the challenge!

Hydrangea’s Bachelorette Challenge: Episode 4

Screenshot-2365.jpg

So, I forgot to get some important pictures.  That, or I lost them.

Therefore, we’re getting straight to it.

Zea, you’re still in.

“Oh, good… I guess.”

Mm, no, be more excited.

Sorry I don’t have any farewell pictures of you, Plum.  I liked you… or, at least, I thought you were cute.

It actually was so close, it came down to whoever won the reader poll.

Screenshot-2293.jpg

These two kids still have a rocky relationship.

Screenshot-2299.jpg

Zea: “Hey, Basil!  Save a plant, eat a bookshelf!”

Basil: “Or a podium.  I heard they’re high in fiber.”

Becca: *insert funny Uranus joke, I’m too tired today*

Screenshot-2301.jpg

Dodger: “Hey, I feel left out! 😦 ”

Oh, sweetie.  Don’t worry, we still love you.

Screenshot-2306.jpg

Cribs?!  Toys?!  What does it all mean?!

It means… BABY CHALLENGE!!!!!!

Let me explain.

I added to the household three toddler-aged sims.  For each one, Hydrangea is the mother.  For one, Basil’s the father.  For the second one, Dodger’s the father.  For the third one, Zea’s the father.

I’ll be locking the three guys in the room with their babies.  There will be a “distraction” room, to tempt the guys.

They earn points for taking care of any kid, but they earn even more points for taking care of their own kid.

It’ll last… 12 or 13 sim-hours.

Points Breakdown:

+2 Play with/socialize with ANY kid.

+4 Play with/socialize with YOUR kid.

+3 Take care of the needs (diaper changes, feeding, putting to bed) of ANY kid.

+6 Take care of the needs (diaper changes, feeding, putting to bed) of YOUR kid.

-1 Each time you use a distraction.

Oh, and…

Up to +10 points for cuteness factor.

Just a note: I probably won’t be showing pictures of every single interaction, but at the end, I’ll tell you the ultimate results.

So… let’s meet the kids!

I tried to give them names that related to their color… key word is tried.

Screenshot-2294.jpg

This is Honey, daughter of Dodger.

She makes the best faces.

Screenshot-2307.jpg

And she’s REALLY good-looking as a young adult.

+9 for being cute as a kid AND good-looking as a young adult

Screenshot-2296

This is Juniper, daughter of Basil.

Screenshot-2309.jpg

Mm… nope.

+2 pity points, and because she’s somewhat colorful

Screenshot-2304.jpg

This is Sky, daughter of Zea.

“I WILL MURDER YOU IN YOUR SLEEP”

 

Screenshot-2308

She’s not too bad-looking.

+8, because she’s entertaining and not ugly

Screenshot-2311.jpg

3… 2… 1… GO!

It takes a while, but someone finally finds a baby.

+2

Screenshot-2313.jpg

+2

Screenshot-2317.jpg

+2

Dodger is just a caretaker MACHINE right now.

Screenshot-2316.jpg

Ah, yes, someone found his kid!

+4

Screenshot-2318.jpg

Zea, no!  Go spend time with your kid, or any kid really!

“No.  TV is my life now.”

-1

Screenshot-2326.jpg

Basil, sweetie… you’re supposed to put food in front of them.

“Oh… I thought it just appeared on the tray.”

Screenshot-2327.jpg

Yes, Dodger!  Being the kind of dad that actually feeds the kids, whether they’re his or not!

Screenshot-2328.jpg

“Ha.  Well, if you’re going to show me up by feeding my kid, I’ll just do the same to you.”

Screenshot-2330.jpg

“Can someone get her to shut up, please?  Her crying is disrupting my vibe.”

Then just DO IT YOURSELF!

Screenshot-2331.jpg

“Ugh, fine.”

+2

Screenshot-2336.jpg

Yes, Zea!  Now you’ve got it!

Not his kid, though.  Sad.  He would have gotten the first +6 for the whole challenge.

Screenshot-2340.jpg

“Save a plant, eat a… podium?  No, Basil was wrong, that doesn’t sound right.”

Aaaaaand… time’s up!

Let’s see the scores.

The guys seemed to have a hard time finding their own babies.

Dodger swept away the competition with… 43 points!

Zea had a rough start, but got there eventually with… 16 points!

Basil started off okay, but got bored easily.  He has… 16 points!

Screenshot-2349.jpg

Wait, what’s this?  It can’t be… LIGHTNING BONUS ROUND!

+3 points for each time you talk to your own kid

Zea: “So, Sky, I wanna know… have you ever seen-“

Screenshot-2351.jpg

“Don’t you dare finish that sentence, or I swear I’ll murder you painfully.”

Ooh.  Harsh.

“Hey.  NO ONE reuses jokes around here.  NO ONE.”

+3

Screenshot-2352.jpg

Basil: “Like, NO, get away from me, tiny human!”

Juniper: “Well, FINE, dad!  I hate you too!”

Screenshot-2360.jpg

EPIC SCARY STORY CONTEST

IT’S A STORY-OFF

Final scores after bonus round:

Dodger- 46

Zea- 22

Basil- 19

Screenshot-2364.jpg

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Sky and Honey.  Not you, Juniper.  Sorry.

Juniper: “That hurts 😦 ”

Bye, girls…

Screenshot-2366.jpg

“OHHHH MY GOODNESS I’M IN THE HOTSEAT, I’M GONNA DIEEEEEEEE again.”

Relax, Dodger.  Everyone’s in the hotseat this time.

Yes, I’m doing away with picking the bottom two.  There’s only three guys left, so what’s the point?

Screenshot-2367.jpg

It’s time to pick your favorite man!  Choose wisely!

Hydrangea’s Bachelorette Challenge: Episode 3

Anyone noticed how the chapters are getting shorter and shorter?

Alright, so last time we left off, Leo and Zea were in the hotseat, and Dodger was promised a private date.

Screenshot-2226.jpg

It started with a concert that apparently was good.  I wouldn’t know anything about concerts, seeing as I’ve never been to one.

Screenshot-2227.jpg

Then they BROFIVED!

Screenshot-2229.jpg

Then they sang some karaoke, Dodger still with pie guts on his face.

Screenshot-2230.jpg

Dodger tried to flirt, Hydrangea rejected…

Screenshot-2231.jpg

Buuuuuut it worked when she did it.

Screenshot-2234.jpg

“So Dodger, tell me everything about the concert-”

“No, I don’t think I like you enough.”

Screenshot-2235.jpg

“WHY WON’T YOU LOVE ME 😦 ”

Screenshot-2238.jpg

Basil: “Hey Hydrangea, the writer chick thinks she’s funny!  What a joke!”

Hey!

Screenshot-2240.jpg

Hydrangea: “Mmhm yes, you’re lookin’ kinda cute today, Basil.”

Screenshot-2241.jpg

It’s a vicious circle for these two.

Their relationship…

Screenshot-2290.jpg

Zea: “But seriously Hydrangea, I wanna know… have you ever seen the rain?”

Did… did that just happen?  Did I just let that happen?

Screenshot-2291.jpg

“But… but who could ever resist this face?”

Go socialize, Zea.  You get points that way.  And points keep you out of the hotseat.

Screenshot-2251.jpg

Alright, let’s get to the elimination.

Let’s start with Zea.  He’s…

Screenshot-2253.jpg

“Safe!  Here, have some flowers for your troubles.”

Screenshot-2254.jpg

“What?!  No!  I don’t want the dead carcasses of innocent plants!”

Screenshot-2255.jpg

“What the actual heck.”

Leo: “LOL u stupid Zea.”

Careful, Zea.  Slip up with her, and you could find yourself out of here.  But seriously.  Have a good relationship with her, it gives you extra points.

Screenshot-2256.jpg

Sorry Leo, but you have to go.

“It’s okay.  I’ll always have my other life…”

True, true.

Screenshot-2257.jpg

And then she handed the innocent boy… the carcass of a dead flower!  The witch was an evil woman who ate meat and used an old gas guzzler, but he didn’t think she was this evil…”

Screenshot-2260

“Oh.  You’re being serious, aren’t you?”

Screenshot-2262.jpg

Let me explain the next challenge!

It’s pretty simple.  Everyone is dancing.  The first one to stop dancing… earns himself a place in the hotseat.

Screenshot-2263.jpg

Well, that was quick!  Plum, what are you doing?

“I must check the sink!  It is essential!”

Well, you’re in the hotseat now.

Screenshot-2264.jpg

“Yay, the pool’s back 🙂 ”

But not for long, kiddos…

Screenshot-2268.jpg

“Yes!  I am the best!  Suck it, losers!”

So why is Basil being weird again?

I forgot to get an essential picture.

But basically, we’re determining the occupant of the second hotseat through an apple-bobbing contest.

It’s like the eating contests, but with apples.

Basil won the first contest, so he’s safe.

Captwer23445re.PNG

Dodger won the second one, so he’s also safe.

Screenshot-2272.jpg

It only got dark because these two idiots would complete their contests, but there’d be no winner.

So they did contest after contest, until…

Screenshot-2273.jpg

Plum: *smug smile*

Screenshot-2274.jpg

Zea, buddy!  What’s going on with you?  That’s twice now you’ve been in the hotseat!

“I don’t know, man.  I just don’t know.”

Screenshot-2276.jpg

Well, after everything that’s happened, these two are the ones in the hotseats.

So, before we go-

Screenshot-2277.jpg

WAIT

WHAT ARE YOU DOING DODGER

QUIT FOOLING AROUND

“I *choke* never learned *splutter* to swim”

NO

I WILL NOT LET YOU DROWN

Screenshot-2279.jpg

“Too late…” *dramatic exit*

DODGER NO

I WILL HATE YOU FOREVER IF YOU DIE

DON’T YOU DARE

Screenshot-2280.jpg

DODGERRRRRR

SEE, THIS IS WHY I DIDN’T WANT TO BRING THE POOL BACK

I KNEW STUPID STUFF LIKE THIS WOULD HAPPEN

Screenshot-2283.jpg

NO GO AWAY GRIMMY

YOU SHOULDN’T EVEN BE HERE

Cap25454523ture.PNG

YES, HYDRANGEA.  THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I WAS THINKING.

Screenshot-2284.jpg

For whatever reason, Basil has a ton of Lifetime Reward points, so I just shrugged and bought a lamp.

Screenshot-2286.jpg

“You better bring back Dodger, or I swear I’ll throw your lamp in the pool.”

“Well, you know I can-”

“And then get Becca to delete to pool.”

Screenshot-2288.jpg

“Dodger!  I thought you were dead!  I’m really glad you’re not, though.”

Screenshot-2289.jpg

YES

DELETE IT

BURN IT TO THE GROUND

So, on that note…
