Chapter 2: New Arrivals

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh hello there. You join us at a pivotal moment in the Heart household- Winter here is about to choose his leading lady for, well, hopefully the rest of his life. Shall we see who the lucky gal is going to be?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
To be honest all Alexis, Winter, and Zuma did for the first few minutes was just stand there looking dazed. I was waiting for Winter to make a move but nuffink was going on, and in the end I think it all got a bit too much for Zuma...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Mm, pretending to faint. That's a neat trick Zuma- that'll win you the boy *rolls eyes*
Well, I guess it's a start eh? At least Zuma's attempting to do... something.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Which is more than I can say for some people... *deathstare*


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, the washing! Yes, that's really important isn't it Zuma? You were more useful when you were unconscious. God what is wrong with my Sims, don't they understand the gravitas of the situation?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Eventually though it became pretty clear that Winter was a bit too shy to make the move, and in the end I guess Zuma decided that she just couldn't wait for him. If she wanted him, she was going to have to make it happen herself.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Luckily Winter was more than happy with that plan.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Sorry Alexis, can't win 'em all.

Fear not though readers- Alexis bounced right back; she actually had a boyfriend meer minutes after leaving the house. Flirty Sims yanno.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Yep, I think it all worked out for the best :)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
*spazzy trampoline celebration*


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After everything was straightened out the new couple headed to the boudoir for a little sumfinsumfin, but apparently Winter was just too tired or perhaps playing coy. Naughty little tease...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
That night, Zuma spent an evening cosied up with the laundry instead of her hunky boyfriend. For shame.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, and the following morning the bloody repoman went and nicked the washing line AND all the clean clothes!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
He also took the recycling bin :( The eco-friendlies really are taking a hit today.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
To get their minds off of almost continual poverty, Zuma decided to flex her scuplting muscles by making Winter his very own statue.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And a beautiful statue it is ;)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After that wonderful gift how could Winter not succumb to Zuma's advances? (And I would imagine that wearing sluttier underwear helped somewhat).

Also, it was at this point that Zuma suddenly wished to have her first child O_O Woah, slow down missus.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In the morning Winter got busy filling in some of the many, many holes he'd dug up with his drilling machine. Meanwhile, the creepy metal gnome levitated nearby and mocked him...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Winter had now reached level 6 in the inventing skill whilst Zuma was at level 8, and the money she had coming in from this enabled her to buy a snazzy Eco-Friendly bicycle XD


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Meanwhile, the house was in as worse a state as ever... Grubby bastards.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, and just when I thought things couldn't get any worse.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Well, at least the toilet he's stealing is filthy as fuck. I kind of win... in the smallest way possible.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
That's it Winter- you be a good little wuss and call the police. They'll protect you I'm sure.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh that's a bloody great idea, have a fight in the smallest room possible why don't cha? The damn burglar got away after this yanno, WITH MY TOILET.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And then the next day the fricking repoman showed up again and took Winter's statue! My Sims really suck at this life thing...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
One thing Winter is good at though is digging through trash, as per usual.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Drilling holes all over the shop too- he's also good at that. And hey, look who showed up to rummage through the junk as well?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
BittenAngel is a grubby little scavenger. It's important that you know this.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After drilling for a while I decided to send Winter in to investigate one of the holes; find out where it goes and shiz. It was so funny though- Winter kind of clung on to the edge for a while then dropped out of sight, and all I heard was 'AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH'. I lol'd so hard :P
In the end he just resurfaced from one of the other holes he'd made.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After even more inventing and drilling and things guess what Winter was rewarded with? Yes, another creepy metal gnome.

I was thrilled too.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
But all this inventing prowess often comes with a price...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
AIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
-calmly walks up stairs-


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
AIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Now kids, if you ever get your ass set on fire you know just what to do.

Stoopid Winter...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
But not all inventing shenanigans were met with failure and firey knickers- for the most part Winter's skillage was rewarding, like Zuma's.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In time, Winter and Zuma built up enough funds to buy themselves some nice appliances (AT LAST!)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And that wasn't the only thing they were able to obtain ;)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
"Hello buddy. My proximity sensors are not picking you up, so I will be waiting for you on your home lot."

Isn't that just the cutest thing you've ever heard? Welcome to the Heart family Humperdink E-600!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Mm, what a sight to see on your first day around humans- a half-naked lady with a chainsaw.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Humperdink is going to fit in well here methinks.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Soon enough Winter returned home and was able to give his new BFF a massive welcoming hug. Bless 'em.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And then it was back off out again- THROUGH TIMEEEEEEEEEE.
By now Winter had reached level 8 of the inventing skill and had made his very own time machine XD


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Zuma meanwhile was celebrating maxxing out the sculpting skill by hacking apart some foliage, as you do.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And Humperdink? Well, he was out in the neighbourhood picking up some scrap for his master.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Well, it was supposed to be for Winter, but Dink liked eating it instead.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
He also enjoyed freaking out for no apparent reason, even though he doesn't have the Neurotic trait.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
But you know what he really, really loves? Coffee. He's obsessed with the stuff- I can never get him to sleep cause he's always jacked up on caffeine. Weird robot...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When the weekend arrived Winter, Zuma, and Humperdink headed off for a nice family day out at the beach.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
While there I discovered Dink's awesome roboty skills, including some sort of rocket powered levitation...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
...And EPIC POWERS OF DESTRUCTION.
As long as he doesn't start chopping up the Heart home furniture it's fine by me.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Whilst at the beach Humperdink spent some time getting to know the residents of Twinbrook, meanwhile Winter and Zuma were simply wrapped up in each other.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
So much so that... well, you know the drill by now.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Winter had lusted over Zuma since the very first moment they'd met, with all the infatuation of a small boy in love. Now that he finally had the girl it seemed only appropriate to make it a forever deal.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I don't think there's even a question of whether she'd say yes or not- I mean, who could say no to this face?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
:)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After the engagement, Winter and Zuma returned home and decided to celebrate with a bit of woohoo in the time machine, which I'm guessing didn't go exactly to plan...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
But something that did go to plan though was Zuma's wish fufillment- she was now on her way towards having her very first child.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The following morning Winter and Zuma spent the day in together while Humperdink tended to some of the house chores. The plants aren't really part of his job description- gardening is just what he really loves to do.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Later on Humperdink headed into town to socialise at the local park.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
For the most part the populus of Twinbrook (like Tempura here- Winter's half-brother) were lovely and perfectly unfazed by seeing a Simbot wandering through the town, but the same could not be said for everyone else...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Meanie. The Humperdink E-600 has to put up with a lot of people pulling disgusted faces at him.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Elsewhere, back at home Winter was demonstrating his best surprised face as Zuma told him news of her pregnancy.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
As night fell, Humperdink returned home and immediately freaked out because Zuma and her fat ass were standing in the way of the precious coffee machine.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Look at that face- those are the eyes of an addict right there; like two peeholes in the snow.

I may have to cut him off soon.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ah, but not only is Humperdink obsessed with the nice warm beverages the coffee machine affords him, he also tends to spend an unusual amount of time just talking to the thing...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh coffee maker, you're so shiny and smooth... Your knobs, your nozzles- you're everything I ever dreamed of and more!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Errr... I just like you as a friend.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Yep, Humperdink certainly fits in well here- he's as flawed and fucked up and human as anyone else.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
So now my friends it's time to leave you. Next time we shall see if Winter and Zuma have a boy or a girl, and whether Humperdink can ever give up the sauce.

Oh, there's one more thing before I go though- a little piece of advice, if you will...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
If you're ever planning to have your Sims fool around in the time machine, do be careful.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
You never know what you might end up with...



You can find the storyboard version here if you'd like to rec.

Curse you Fury! You and your cliffhangers. But good job!

ItallianSounds said...

Aww, what a cute cliffhanger there. ;)
Love the mystery time travler.

Fae said...

Wow, I loved it! Simbots are always a nice touch, they're just so funny and weird. Although somebody told me when a Sim 'Tries for Baby' in the future, the child comes back three days later as an elder. I guess they were mistaken.

Anonymous said...

Mystery child from the future! Interesting... Veeeerrrryyyy interesting!

Pip03 said...

I'm sososo glad he chose Zuma. No offence, but Alexis reminds me too much of my brother's whore- I mean girlfriend.

FuryRed said...

I never doubted he'd make the right choice :)

simadiction said...

omb that is so awsome fury i love ur stories will u give mine a trie when it comes out plz ty-bronwyn

SummerRaine said...

Hehe...the whole 'child from the future' thing happened to me too. Shoving it back in the time machine doesn't get rid of it. ;) Already tried.

FuryRed said...

@simadiction: Ahmagad my mom's name is Bronwen- spelt differently to yours obvs. Is it coming back in fashion or summat?
I'm willing to give any legacy a try.


@SummerRaine: I'd exterminate any unwanted time travellers with the Chaos Mod :P

Winters facial expressions are just priceless sometimes! Awesome storytelling!!

Westie said...

Hey! Tempura has Miles's body! Woohoo! He's multiplying!

Mmmm I'mma have to breed winter after this.

PS. Take the driller to your favorite spot and drill a hole there so your sims can get there faster. Tada!

Somber and Dottie said...

You so need to put Tempura on the Exchange. xD

Fae said...

Sorry, I was on a hike this morning (I tend to zone out when my sister starts complaining) and I thought of a weird, but still cool, name.

Sassafras!

Weird ain't it? Anyway...

Anonymous said...

I tried that try for baby in the time machine I got a H-O-T girl,than boy,than another girl you told me buy I didn't listen I should have known better.Fury has you simbot started.....humping things?Mine has I think its tring to get the microwave,computer,and coffee machine prgo horny robo.(I made a rhyme!)I'm glad Winter chose Zuma Alexis reminded me of my slut sister.

FuryRed said...

Nah, atm the love between Humperdink and the coffee machine is purely one-sided, and then there was an unfortunate incident and they're not together anymore...

Chouxie/Abby said...

Happeh dance :)

Mimi Mctoon said...

Ahh, simbots....mine was named Mauricio and had an odd obsession with the dishwasher...then he spontaneously smashed it and well, I decided to ship him off to his girlfriend at that point...and because his "best friend" had gone off and died of old age. By the way...I love the new legacy! :)

Anonymous said...

Love your legacies and canm you put Zuma and Tempura on the exchange?-Becca

I love the inventing trait and the kleptomaniac trait(but nobody had tht in this story)but anyways keep doing what your doing!-Brooke

pentameter said...

I have never had repomen accost my sims as much as they do yours. I think I'd get so mad at them they'd end up having an unfortunate accident while on my lot. I already kill mail carriers that throw bills on the ground and lazy maids that don't clean anything. Adding repomen to the list wouldn't be hard to do. xD

I <3 Humperdink. He's great. The Simbots I've had are all lame. They don't seem to be nearly as much fun as yours. What traits does he have?

FuryRed said...

Brave, Green Thumb, Hydrophobic, Family Oriented, and Good. However, I recently changed his Hydrophobic trait for Neat, and let's just say that was a very BAD idea...

The little paperclip said...

yay!! i voted right!! whoo hoo!! (dont be sick minded about what i just said by the way)

Fae said...

Hm, either Humperdink went into the bathtub and turned into a very ugly human Sim (which usually happens with Sims from MTS) or...my mind just went blank. I guess he could have shorted out...

simadiction said...

umm idk im like 20 soo yah but ur kid from future is hooooooooot

Anonymous said...

Hmmm, sometimes I do wish Winter chose Alexis - she is Super Furyreds great great grandchild after all. You could have continued the furyred bloodline.

Love the legacy!
