Babbling Brooks, Chapter 3.1

One person’s craziness is another person’s reality. ~Cybele Brooks~

Colin comes by to visit the family.  He is thinking that the strange is strong in these boys.

Basil is working hard to complete the Fabulously Wealthy aspiration.  Maybe a little too hard.

Mom looking big and heavy with dad panicking in the background?  It must be baby time.  Can you believe this is the beginning of the 4th generation, and I haven’t gotten bored yet!  That couldn’t possibly be because of the deaths… I mean insanity!

After baby Finley is born, Cybele and James go woohooing.  In the rocket, the telescope, the sauna, and then back to bed.  And he just won’t die.

01-21-16_5-35-51 AM

James is feeling just a little bit confident after surviving Cybele’s attempt to woohoo him to death.

01-21-16_5-42-55 AM

Giving up on the death by woohoo, the happy couple heads to the gym for a workout.

01-21-16_5-54-32 AM

Cybele is showing baby tummy with a six-pack.  She must be pregnant again.

01-21-16_5-59-15 AM

Feeling she has earned a massage, she hires a masseuse to come over and give her a couple of massages.

01-21-16_6-06-30 AM

Avery came by to visit and apparently died on the lot.  His ghost spent time visiting and then poofed away.

01-21-16_6-13-13 AM

Finley becomes a child and spends his first day completing homework and playing chess.

01-21-16_6-25-22 PM

Cybele is concerned about getting her shape back quickly and spends time on the treadmill so that she won’t lose her six-pack no matter how big she gets.

01-21-16_6-31-58 PM

Another death as Cybele succeeds in killing James by woohoo.  James gave mastered fitness and two potential heirs to the legacy.

01-21-16_6-37-27 PM

Cybele is frozen and dismayed by what she has done to the love of her life, the father of her children.

01-21-16_6-39-50 PM

Or maybe, she just peed herself.

01-21-16_6-40-23 PM

She was late for work, and hurried off without taking a shower and grieving for James.  She soon regrets going to work as her performance suffered for it.

01-21-16_6-40-59 PM

“Insanity doesn’t run in my family. It gallops!”

01-21-16_6-47-03 PM

While Cybele heads to the hospital to give birth to baby number two, Finley mourns for his father.

01-21-16_7-07-53 PM

Ariella pops out to remind Basil his time is almost up.

01-21-16_7-06-39 PM

There is a lot of peeing going on as Ethan spends so much time mourning that he also pees himself.

01-21-16_7-09-09 PM

There is no telling what Cybele said to Basil but he is shocked.  Or horrified.  Maybe she told him she killed James with woohoo.

01-21-16_7-40-38 PM

And we say goodbye to Basil.  He completed three aspirations, mastered painting, and collected a lot of pen pals and postcards.

01-22-16_8-03-21 PM

With Basil’s death, the game glitched on his urn and refused to save.  With a little bit of luck, I was able to go to Manage Households and get the game to finally update the file.  With a save under a new name, the game continues, but without Basil’s urn.  And then, when I load the recovered game, Grim is shushing Daphne.  This is really very wrong.

“Shh! I know you are the insane woman’s daughter.  I will be back many times before this is all over.  Now, sshhh, sleep child.”

01-22-16_8-40-13 PM

Everyone heads to bed while the repairman makes an emergency after hours visit to fix whatever is broken.  It looks like he is also about to pee his pants.

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
