43 - The Beginning of the End

Hey everyone, as of right now this challenge is completed! I busted my ass for a week straight and got all the pictures aligned, from here on out everything is already DONE, so chapters will get a little sparser/less amusing (har, I'm assuming I was funny in the first place), and I also will not be doing any more editing of portraits beyond what I'll already have here and the YA portraits that I needed for the Baby Count page. All the babies are up, so spoiler alert if you go there. Some spoilers are hidden in white font [between brackets], just highlight them to see. I know some people don't like being let in on the details at the end of the file before it hits, so hopefully this satisfies all!

Bevan will start up this chapter with his adorable foot-grabbing goodness. I really liked watching the faces he made as he read, they just make me so happy inside. 

You know how sometimes there are people who will see babies in real life and they'll become goo over them? That's not me. I'm never that person... but give me sim babies? I'm a fucking puddle.


Ack, these two, too! (Squints at picture) 
OH RIGHT, Adilyn is preggo here! 
Err I mean, of course she is! I totally knew that. 
Not like I was... ahem... cramming through this file at top speed these past two weeks and don't know what's up or what's down...

Hurrghhh, but I liked you two together. (pouts)
(flips off story progression) yea F YOU, TOO, MAN.

Liam is a ghost here, for reasons I'm uncertain about... OH yes! I was checking to see if Adilyn could get the "see the ghost of dead rich spouse" qualification for the Gold Digger Lifetime Wish could fire using a Ghost potion. It didn't work, but at least Liam could float through walls for like... four hours.

Pew pew pew.

My bad apples have taken to cleaning out the potties on the regular, which I certainly don't mind. Given Brynne and Baron will be aging up to help fill those toddlers it's going to get hectic really fast up in here. I've also said "fuck it" to my schedule so babies will be pouring in until we get the babies needed.
[Spoiler alert: I didn't need any spares.]

Pew pew pew peeewwwww.

Don't look now, Brooke is actually minding her own business... not something she does often. She's probably doing that to make you think I'm exaggerating when I say she's the WORST. 
Worst what? 
Worst nothing. Just worst.
THE worst.

(Snorts) ahahahahahaahahahaaha. 
Goddamn you, Baelfire. 
You trash your relationship with Brielle, go after her sister, and can't even keep THAT?

Uhm. Gorgeous painting. Alert. Gorgeous painting. Holy shit. I've not seen that one before.

Pew pew.

Look at little Blossom taking care of her brother! How sweet!
(glares at Brooke) STOP BREATHING MY AIR.

Liam is taking on the clay block for science.
Well really it's for sculpting, but for me, it's science.
Science of getting this challenge done with the most points possible!

(hard snort) That's new.

I... I'm... I can't... believe she found someone.
[Spoiler alert: They're still together at the end of the file.]

Pew pew pew pew pew.

Ode to couple's sculpting together. 
The couples who sculpt together, stay together.


This boy looks like he ate a bad case of tacos and is suffering for it. 
I feel you, Bevan, babe.

I love the different animations for this toddler bed. Bria sleeps like a mini-vampire, while Bevan comes over and conks out... sometimes not even ENTIRELY on the mat, lol! 

Told you, sculpt together, stay together.

You guys locked that down awfully fast...

Dunno who he is and can't be bothered to apply a makeover. Good luck, dude.

lol SP, tell me something I don't already know...
like you know... Olivia and Kefka are having a baby...? Please?

This is Jordan, Quizzie's eldest daughter.

Liam plays daddy while Adilyn deals with sculpting and pregnancy.

Just an FYI there's probably way more notifications than actual screenshots from here on out. I kind of just buried my head in the sand thinking "I'm almost done" for 99% of these 10+ chapters, lol.

These kids are just whipping out painting after painting after painting. I LOVE it.

I'm... 95% sure this labor was a pain in the ass. Like... 96% sure? Hrmm somewhere in that area. Pretty sure I had to redo this one a few times... let me check my discord chat to see (as if so I would've complained about it there)
HA yup there it is. 4x reloaded for this one (shaking head). 
That would explain why all the pictures afterward are just... jumbled and seemingly unrelated. COOL, we'll be back Addy. Keep up the good work! 


You won't even get an epitaph.

You just HAD to go and break the goddamn not-so-routine machine?

Swim to the other side and drown, please.

Of course that would fucking work.

You know what I don't give a flying fuck. Keep her. I can have another bad apple. This one is too much.

Show them what a bitch you are and declare yourself leader. I know you want to.

Serves her right. Can she really come back as a frog, please?

And she somehow... entered a catacomb to spelunk and get us an orange tree seed? Yea, not better, lady, not even a little.
So Brooke got thrown from the dreamscape, spewed out just outside of school, to which she then snail crawled her way back home to get on the bus to then go to school, thus holding up everyone at home who was on the school bus.
Now do you see why I want her dead? I want her buried so far beneath the surface that the intense heat of the earth's CORE will obliterate her sorry ass.

And we have a boy named Blade! Please don't ask for traits. I just... Nope. Not there. Gone. Long gone. With the wind. Forever. Away. Poof.

Followed shortly by a bouncing baby girl, Babette! Babette I recall at least got Light Sleeper out of this, lol. You'll see why in a future update why I can remember this one off the top of my head.

Let's hop on the last few baby trains please and thank you!

(alarms sounding) We have a grandbaby! I repeat, we have a grandbaby! Oh, and let me show you of the horrors of my game when it's unrendered (something I saw A LOT OF this last week I was crunching this out):

Give it a second, it loads in perfectly, and I wait for them to step out so I can ambush them about their daughter.

Hurk... she's um... I mean... she's not UGLY, her face is just... strangely proportioned. She basically got the most unfortunate features of her GORGEOUS parents and I'm a bit flabbergasted by it. Is it the worst I've seen? Never. Just not... what I was hoping for from her pretty parents.

Pew pew pew pew pew pew pew.
Let's wrap this chapter up because I kind of dumped a lot of these pictures in a few albums and I'm sort of guestimating how long they should be. 
I dunno.


  1. Brooke, Brooke, Brooke. If there's one thing I've learned here, it's that you never MESS WITH THE ROUTINE.

    Love this pew pew pew approach. XD

  2. Routine Machine, genius, I'm so installing that in my game. Have never really used it much, but I'm sure it would help get everyone to work/school quickly. Except when you have an idiot obsessed with it, I guess.
