The Zalien Cometh 9.4

Hey Hey, Kids!  Welcome back to another Fancy installment of the Zale Family ISBI – Alphabetcy!  Juniper, the resident Zalien won the heir poll, and now it’s time to get on with the post!

As always, we begin with a ZALE CHECK!
Law Enforcement Officer Tahiya is walking away from the party.

Ike is wanting some cake.

Jillian is eating cake.

Jenny opts for PB&J
Somewhat healthier I suppose.  Not that they eat the crusts, those picky Sims.

James is looking like a dork.
As he’s known to do…

Juniper, future TH is caught cracking her knuckles.
Lovely idle animations.

Lastly we have July…
About to eat some cake.

Now that you’re all caught up on the current residents and their whereabouts, it’s time to move on!  Jillian and Jenny are YA’s, so it’s adieu to those two!
Screenshot-8I move them out together.  I hope they enjoy each others company.

And then there were five.
then there were 5
So nice!  Don’t mind the fact that James is selected.  Ike’s portrait never consistently reflected his makeover, so I kept confusing the two of them.

I’m going to miss Ike, when the torch passing time comes.
But fortunately, there’s 11 days until Juniper’s YA birthday, so we still have some time together.

My game kept crashing, and nothing was happening – so here’s a picture of July staring at a plate.
Screenshot-10Because why not?  And she’s adorable and I’m sad she’s not the heir.

About 10 IRL days past between that picture and the next time I managed to get the Zales up and running.

We reconvene with Ike rolling a wish to teach July to drive!  Having learned from others, apparently the Motive Mobile is the way to go.
Screenshot-11It’s ugly – no doubt, but for driving lessons, it’s supposed to be supreme.  AND IT IS!  Their motives were full in NO TIME.  WHY HAVE I NOT USED THIS BEFORE!?!

I was watching the future TH while Ike and July were out learning to drive…
…and I discovered she has the World Renowned Surgeon LTW, which is BORING and Erik Zale already did that… She has enough LTH to buy the Change LTW reward, which we will purchase for her as soon as we can.

Meanwhile.  Ugh.  This guy…
I hate this guy.  I can’t wait until he grows up and moves out.  But he did help me reach my self-created goal of at least one child of each gender per generation – so he has served his purpose.

But seriously.
James: mama?  Help me mama!

It’s been over 24 hours since Ike and July went on their “Learn to Drive” adventure… while they were out and about, James got a pop up that his pal Pal wanted to come out and play.
Since he’s at this lovely ladies house, why not?  Oh.  I can’t.  He doesn’t have an IF in his inventory.  Just kidding!

Over 36 hours later – July finally learns to drive.
Dang!  That took ages!

I should not let Ike play instruments when the children need to be getting ready for school…

Or need to be going to SLEEP.
James is an idiot.

This dude is named Tristan.  He’s freezing and texting the mailman.Screenshot-19He lives on the lawn now.  So that’s always nice.

james honor roll Juniper honor roll
+10!  WEE!

Tahiya also managed to get promoted!
Level 7
Awesome!  She needs reports now, so I’m sure this is her final promotion, but I’m super proud of her anyway!  Huzzah!

James pretends to be a kitty, but the girls do their homework right away.
Such nice girls!

Tahiya gets home from work and instantly puts July in a time-out.
I have no idea why!

Aw, poor baby!
Ike’s at work for the next four hours, so there’s not much I can do for her!

Then Tahiya breaks the computer.

The trash compactor is broken too!Screenshot-24Lovely.

Nice Tahiya.  Thanks.Screenshot-25I even watched her exclaim “I NEED TO PEE!” then she went and did the dishes first.  -5

Then Ike gets an interesting phone call.
Ike's wifeTahiya Shalut is already his wife!  I said “yes” just to see what happened.
Nothing.  Nothing happened.

After peeing herself, taking a shower, and prank calling her husband for a fake date, Tahiya plays some pool.Screenshot-26At least she isn’t practicing idiot trick shots that shoot billiard balls at her already misshapen nose.

James proves to be a tiny bit less worthless by completing his homework.Screenshot-27While his sister Juniper eats cake

July is also about ready to do some studying.Screenshot-28
Ike is at work…

Sister socialization!
Screenshot-29I approve!

ERMAGHERD!  I thought Ike had two more promotions to go!  Not just one!
LTW for IkeHis LTW is complete!  +40

Tahiya has also just finished a painting!
And I don’t hate it!  Excellent!

Ike:  Hey wife…(Flirt Flirt)
Nice Painting… 😉

Woohoo now?Screenshot-32
I told you guys Ike was horny.

horny ike
That’s two WooHoo with his wife wishes.  One is WooHoo with Tahiya, the other Tahiya Zale.  Both wishes were granted with the same WooHoo.

Uh Oh – Looks like James is going to try his hand at the food processor pool trick!
Abort!  Abort!
Duck you moron!
Screenshot-36PHEW!  Just in the nick of time!

Hey!  We hired a mixologist!
It’s Spooky Day so her attire is actually appropriate.  How nice.

I have Ike test her wares prior to the arrival of any guests.
Screenshot-38You know, just to be safe.

Tahiya is a bunny!

Juniper a tiger!
Could be worse.

Jenny is a burglar, and Sammy a doctor…
But more importantly, the GRILL IS ON FIRE!

Get out of the way!

Ike couldn’t get through to put out the flames…
So we have to call the fire department!

Have you ever seen such a cluster?!?

Aaaannnd the first party guest has caught on fire.
Screenshot-45This is party crasher William Pace.  Juniper is doing her Daredevil best to save him.

Guy on Fire:  This party is terrible!
Screenshot-46Just behind him, Jenny Zale in the burglar costume has also ignited.  NO NO NO NO NO!

Screenshot-47My.  This is not good.

Tahiya:  Irene is on fire!

Fireperson: Whelp, can’t get through – you’re all gonna die
Screenshot-49Ivy in the Foreground:  OH THE SIMMANITY!

Fireperson:  😐
Screenshot-50Irene:  engulfed in flames

Juniper is earning my affections and trying SO HARD to extinguish everyone.
Screenshot-51I appreciate you brave Zalien!  (Robot dude is David Brunson!  Meredith and Giles’ love child.)

Things look dire for Jenny and Irene.
Screenshot-52Please… No more tragic Zale party deaths!

Welcome to a Zale Party.
Screenshot-53*Sigh*  Irene in flames: This party sucks!

The chaos refuses to cease!
Screenshot-54Just jump in the pool!  SOMEONE PUSH THEM IN THE POOL!

We manage to get Jenny put out!
Screenshot-55And she remains singed but unharmed.

And thanks to Junipers heroic efforts…

Amidst all the chaos…

We manage to save Irene too!
Screenshot-58She too, is singed but unharmed.  I thought for SURE she was a goner!

Ike tried to make spaghetti to salvage the party…
Screenshot-59But nearly everyone had left just after the fire was completely extinguished.

This is all who remained to eat the meal…
Screenshot-60And even though it was a total disaster, the party was a “modest success”.

This here is July in her cowgirl costume being a cutie.
Screenshot-61Have to have SOMETHING positive from the evening’s events.

Ike performs a piece on the guitar…
Screenshot-62…And Jillian poses.  Cute.

Married couple after pyro party activity:
Screenshot-63Aw, she’s still in her bunny costume.

The Zalien practiced shuffleboard all night.
Screenshot-64Still dressed like a tiger.  Rawr.

Have I mentioned James is a moron?  Well he is. This is where he has chosen to do his homework.

The girls at the exact same moment?
Screenshot-66Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

While nothing of note happens within the family – this dude goes and dies on the lawn during a full moon.

July, drawn outside to witness the death, decides to build a snowman right in front of the door.
Screenshot-68We’ll see how this pans out later… Thankfully I have winter set extra short in Lucky Palms – doesn’t seem like a very wintery kinda place.

Full moons always bring out all the ghosties, so I check on the Zales of generations past.
Screenshot-69I found Traci making a snowman, dear Imogene just haunting that lamp, Shelley on the trampoline, and Giles disgusted by her ghastliness.  It was so nice to see Imogene!  And as tragic as her death was, it’s cool to see a ghost that hadn’t died of old age.

So, another first!  Juniper chargers her brain power…
Screenshot-70While her father has a bite to eat.

It’s rather creepy, actually!
Screenshot-71She makes weird faces and is frozen like that until her brain power meter is full.  Spooky.

There is a party looming!
Screenshot-72We’ve all been waiting!

It’s birthday time for James and Juniper!
Screenshot-73James’ was actually today, and Juniper’s in just a couple, so I went for it!

Oh look… Jenny and Irene are still singed from their last visit.
Screenshot-74Apparently their homes are not equipped with showers… lovely.

James goes first!
Screenshot-75I’m looking forward to being rid of him!

He rolls computer whiz to go with clumsy, good, loves the outdoors and insane.
Screenshot-76I give him a nerdy look.

Screenshot-77Ike’s generation is coming to a close!

Juniper rolls nurturing to go with clumsy, genius, disciplined and dare devil.

Wooee!  Look at that profile!
Screenshot-79Your TH, ladies and gentlemen.  😐

After a little makeover, I present to you…
Screenshot-80Juniper Zale!

I kick James out with artistic silhouette lighting…
Screenshot-81…And that’s that!

Like previously mentioned, I cash in Juniper’s LTH to change her LTW and we have…
Martial Arts
Martial Arts Master!  I have never attempted this before, we’re going to be spending a LOT of time in China!

    Yay for Ike completing his LTW. 😀
    This was such a short generation (especially compared to Helen) but I’m really excited to see Juniper in action. Vivian’s (soon to be) love interest has the same LTW but I have no idea how hard it’s going to be.
    That Zale party was crazy. I’m glad no one died. That would’ve been so sad 😦 and I swear, the firefighter and police service sims are USELESS. Half the time, I end up putting out the fire myself (and then get charged for it) because they’re too incompetent to do their own job.
    I’ve never thought of using the motive mobile for driving lessons :O that’s actually a really smart idea, I’ll have to remember that!
    Fab update on the Zales. Can’t wait to see where Juniper’s story takes us!

      You know, as displeased I was with Juniper winning the heir poll, I AM rather excited to see what she gets up to. I’ve never tried this LTW before, so I’m also a little excited about that! Hopefully we both won’t have too much trouble with it!

      I too am glad no one died at that party! The last holiday party cost us a spare!

    Oh. An LTW that involves travelling. i do not envy you, but then I hate travelling, but like reading about others travels. Have fun in China.

    1. Heather Post author

      I like travelling now that it doesn’t cause my game to self-destruct. And China is so lovely. I think Juniper will have some fine times!

  3. Echo Weaver

    I love vacation worlds! And I love martial arts! And I’ve never played an alien! So much win coming for the next generation.

    That was possibly the most epic house fire I have ever seen. Even better because after all the drama, nobody died. Woot.

    1. Heather Post author

      Juniper and I have had a lot of fun! I won’t spoil it too much, but ever so very much happens in the next post!!!

      That fire was one of the largest I’ve witnessed myself! I can’t believe that Irene survived, she was completely engulfed for several IRL minutes.

  4. somebodysangel13

    Wow, how did I miss this post? (too much reading of new legacies, forgot to check on the old loves ones!) I was halfway through reading Juniper’s first one, and was getting so confused. No wonder, I missed all the fun times that happened here!

    So funny when sims decide they want to live on your lawn. Especially when they then die because they’re too dumb to change their action. You’re cold – then go home/inside!

    OMG, and your party! Almost as bad as Zefie with all the fires. Bet you’re liking Juniper more now, what with her saving the day. Sim coding is *so* stupid with fires. Do not all run to the fire from the other side of the house! That causes issues when someone is trying to put the fire *out*, stupid sims. Would it be cheating to get the “Fireproof Homestead” LTR? I did that for Abby, and she went and had a child at hospital while there was food on the stove – nothing happened but the food got burnt to Horrifying Quality. Awesome.

    1. Heather Post author

      It’s funny, this post got very few views and comments… I wonder why? I did appreciate Juniper saving the day, but I like her even MORE now (you’ll see!)

      I did buy the fireproof homestead. I had it back in the day, but fires add drama, so I let it go… but yeah, it was time to have it back again. 🙂 Thanks for reading and the wonderful comment!
