Alright, ’07, that last chapter was a fucking mess. Can we focus a little this time?
Grugly2007: Okay, well, forget that last batch of Sims I made. We’ll go with these ones. Mark Knight, Nick, Maya and Stewart Berkowitz, Tanya and Corey Taylor, Pete and Cameron Emerson.
Grugly2007: I’m mostly sure.
Well, let’s make it Stewart Cox, then, after his mom’s name. Simplifies things.
Grugly2007: It does suit him better.
Man, all that setup, and this is your first pic?
Grugly2006: I died so that you could live?!
Grugly2007: You didn’t die.
Grugly2006: THEN HOW COME ALL MY CELLS HAVE BEEN REPLACED, HUH
Pete: “Huh” is right.
Cameron: Gnome sweet gnome.
Grugly2006: Well, at least there’s more nudity this time.
Shame you can’t SEE IT
Grugly2007: Get off my back!
Tanya: Get me on my back!
Stewart: I can get behind that!
Tanya: Sure, get behind me, that works too.
Stewart: I’m so glad I could get to know your table better.
Man, time flies when you’re not taking pics.
Stewart: This is my favourite sculpture, like, ever.
Stewart: I wish it were interactive.
Tanya: Your wish is your command.
I see we still can’t complete even the simplest of camera-centerings.
Tanya: HAHAHA YOU’RE INCOMPETENT
Grugly2006: Dude! I was better than this!
Grugly2007: Maybe we’re from different timelines?
Grugly2006: Different timelines don’t exist.
Grugly2007: Maybe they do in my timeline?
Stewart: This is the timeline where we’re fucking.
Corey: Well, excuse the fuck out of you.
Grugly2007: She wouldn’t say that.
Grugly2006: He doesn’t care.
Yeah, I’m just here for the snorging.
Grugly2006: Wait’ll he starts going through your old files to embarrass you.
All my files from 2007 are currently lacking date stamps.
Grugly2006: YOU HAVE ALL THE ADVANTAGES, ’07, AND YOU’RE SQUANDERING THEM
Grugly2007: I’m just sitting here watching folks snorg, I dunno what you’re talking about.
Stewart: Do you know who those three dudes in the sky are?
Tanya: Yeah. The present, the past, and the wholly-gone.
Grugly2006: You’re wholly gone.
Tanya: Wholly gone fishin’.
Tanya: CAUGHT ME A BIG ONE
Tanya: FUCK ME LOW-RES, BABY
Grugly2007: Ah, falling in love while you fuck. So classy.
Grugly2006: Yeah, disgusting.
I don’t see the problem.
Grugly2006: That’s because you’re disgusting.
Grugly2007: I can’t believe we become a slut in the future.
Stewart: Hey baby, wanna become a slut in the past?
Tanya: Retroactive sluttery is best sluttery.
I think the word is “slatternliness.”
Grugly2007: I cannot confirm.
You could look it up.
Grugly2007: I could, but I didn’t.
Stewart: I LOVE HOW NEW YOUR VAGINA IS
Tanya: I’LL PROBABLY NEED ANOTHER NEW ONE IN A WEEK
Tanya: I intend to get a lot of use out of it.
Stewart: I intend to get a lot of use in it!
Tanya: These in-out jokes are really clever, I bet they’ll never get old.
Yeah, I bet they’ll never be half the jokes I make or anything.
I always liked Tanya.
She’s one of the only ones that doesn’t end up being ugly in high-res.
I mean, the skintone she’s currently got blows chunks, so she’ll seem kinda deformed and weird, but it’s nothing a race change won’t fix.
Tanya: …I don’t even know how to react to that.
Tanya: Stress eating is my current go-to.
Stewart: I didn’t know you could eat stress!
Tanya: I eat idiots, too.
Stewart: For breakfast?
Stewart: Then shut up about it ’til morning.
Trying to get a cleavage peek?
Grugly2007: STOP LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER AT MY LOOKING OVER HER SHOULDER, DAMMIT
Ha! Weird. The real Autumn Heights Mark uses the same wallpaper and floor tiles and stuff.
Mark: Wait, I’m not the real Autumn Heights Mark?!
You’re a real Mark, but this isn’t the real Autumn Heights.
Mark: Wait… uh… what?
Maya: HELLO I AM LOVE INTEREST
Mark: Hello! I am love interested.
Mark: I can’t believe…
Maya: I never would’ve…
Mark: Why did he make me…
Maya: I have to go.
Maya: You’ve got a lot of nerve, making me say that.
I’m the Maker. Making’s what I do.
Grugly2006: Ooh, look, it found the walls-up button.
Grugly2007: Piss off.
Grugly2007: You’re dead to me.
And yet I see his influence in most of the pics you take.
Grugly2007: These pics aren’t for you, they’re for me.
Honestly I can’t even see what use you’d get out of them.
Grugly2007: You say I abandon this version of the neighbourhood?
Grugly2007: Maybe it’s because I play all this in one day, and then see that the pics are all tiny?
Maya: When I ask questions about my impending demise, it would be super sweet of you to answer.
Yeah, I can see these pics justifying a neighbourhood deletion.
The terrain’s still not custom, either.
Grugly2007: It fucking is.
…holy shit, you’re right!
Well, it’s still your fault for not taking any establishing shots.
And the houses are still mostly Maxis.
Grugly2006: Why are we even here, again?
Because I’m an historian, and this is the past.
Grugly2007: We’re an historian?
Grugly2006: He and I have already been over this.
Grugly2007: Well, I’m not the older version of you, because timeline branching.
Grugly2006: I thought we established that timeline branching wasn’t a thing.
Grugly2007: That was in an alternate timeline.
Grugly2007: HER KNEES LOOK LIKE BOOBS
THEY DO LOOK LIKE BOOBS
Grugly2007: THEY DO
Grugly2007: HAHAHA HUUUUEG
Grugly2007: Her boobs look like boobs as well.
Maya: You look like boobs.
Grugly2007: No, we look at boobs.
Grugly2006: But not nearly often enough.
Grugly2007: And sometimes we’re creepy about it.
Grugly2007: Okay, all the times.
Grugly2006: At least we’re persistent.
Yeah, I don’t know why I’m letting you persist.
When did this happen?
Grugly2007:September 24, 2007, at 7:05 PM.
I mean, since when are Corey and Nick romantically involved?
Nick: I mean… ‘s gotta be year one, right?
Nick: It’s an emergent situation.
This chapter depicts gameplay from 24 September 2007.
