Generation 1, Part 2
Week – 1
Lot – 1 Legacy Lane

Atlantis Derp (G1, F) Knowledge, 4 8 6 3 3, LTW Become a mad scientist

Last time we were on the lot, Atlantis got talking to Jim Turner, a possible co-founder. The next day, she saw him with another woman and…assuming he was spoken for, proceeded to flirt with Amar Monif.

Unfortunately, Atlantis’s assumptions were wrong, and Jim was not happy when he saw Atlantis with Amar, proceeding to shout at her in the middle of Red’s Diner. Atlantis was left very upset, but Amar consoled her.

Atlantis is a simple soul at heart. Even a bowl of serials can be enough to put a smile on her face sometimes.

snapshot_c846660b_2846d124

So, Jim Turner decided to walk past the lot. Apparently his soul purpose was to stand there and look pompous. Still, Atlantis didn’t want any enemies in Derp Canyon. If she and Jim could at least get back to being civil, then maybe things would be okay.

snapshot_c846660b_c846d173

As it was, as soon as Atlantis said hello, Mr Turner made an excuse about the time, and said he needed to head home.

snapshot_c846660b_a846d1ae

“So, can we all agree that he is a bit of a jerk?”

Yes, Atlantis. On this, you and I are in agreement.

As if THAT wasn’t bad enough, the next morning, while Atlantis was getting ready for work, Jim stole the newspaper. Yep. Hell hath no fury like a man scorned by a woman.

snapshot_c846660b_0846d5ec

Atlantis had settled into a pretty comfortable routine of visiting the gym after work, which helped with her fun and hygene needs while she was without a shower and tv. That particular evening, Amar had also insisted on meeting her, to make sure she was okay.

snapshot_c846660b_2846d6ba

“So, Atlantis, do you like bowling?”

“I don’t know, I’ve never been.”

“You’ve never been bowling! Right, follow me.”

snapshot_c846660b_c846d70e

“Oh no, Amar, are you okay?”

“Yep, nothing hurt except my pride.”

snapshot_c846660b_c846d740

“Ooops. There’s my pride dying alongside it.”

“Pro tip. Avoid the gutter.”

“Hey. This is my first time.”

snapshot_c846660b_e846d7a1

“Is it really? I honestly couldn’t tell.”

“Shut up.”

“You’re right. That was cruel. How can I make it up to you?”

snapshot_c846660b_0846d7f0

“I can think of a couple of things.”

snapshot_c846660b_4846d823

Soooo, I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that Jim is out of the picture.

snapshot_c846660b_4846d848

Yup, we have hearts.

And suddenly, the casual outing was Atlantis’s first ever date.

Oh boy.

snapshot_c846660b_0846d999

Amar wanted to dine out, so Atlantis booked them a table.

snapshot_c846660b_4846da49

Look at that face. She is absolutely smitten.

snapshot_c846660b_a846daaf

“Here, have a bite of this meal that is exactly the same as what you are having.”

Although at this angle, I am worried that it looks like Atlantis is stabbing Amar with the fork.

snapshot_c846660b_e846db69

Don’t forget to breath there, will you kids.

snapshot_c846660b_0846dbe8

Now I will never EVER claim to be an expert in The Sims 2, but one thing I can do is ace a date. Atlantis and Amar had a dream date, despite Atlantis being dead on her feet from exhaustion by the end of it.

snapshot_c846660b_6846dc38

They even became best friends as a result 😀

snapshot_c846660b_a846dc5a

“Their day of judgement will come.”

Oh Jim, I didn’t see you there.

No, honestly, I didn’t notice that Jim was sitting there until he started voicing his disgust about Atlantis to The Count, who TBH looked like he couldn’t care less.

snapshot_c846660b_6846dca6

snapshot_c846660b_2846e444

Glowy eye doggo has glowing eyes :-/

snapshot_c846660b_0848276a

Um Atlantis.

“Can’t stop. Going to be late for work.”

But you’re…

“See you tonight.”

Thinking cap?

snapshot_c846660b_884827a8

Welp, at least she won’t have any issues with concentrating at work.

snapshot_c846660b_e84828fe

As it turned out, Atlantis should wear the thinking cap more often. She got a promotion at work, and celebrated by buying a fridge and inviting Amar over.

It was Amar’s first time seeing the lot.

snapshot_c846660b_a8482948

snapshot_c846660b_48482951

“You didn’t tell me you were a legacy sim.”

“Yeah. My big worst kept secret.”

“The place looks…good. You know, you’ve done well.”

“Thanks.”

snapshot_c846660b_a84829df

“Actually, the timing kind of works out. Look I have no right to ask this, but you know if you don’t ask the answer is always no.”

“Okay, Amar. I’m listening.”

“Well, it’s just, the lease on my apartment is about to expire, and I WAS going to renew it but…well, what if I move in and help you build up the place. Two jobs is better than one with a legacy house, right?”

“You…you’d do that for me?”

“Live in a field with an outside toilet. Sure.”

snapshot_c846660b_28482a4c

snapshot_c846660b_e8482a82

And so Amar joined the lot.

Amar is a fellow knowledge Sim, stats 2, 3, 9, 7, 4. Life time want to become Chief of Staff, which DOES make one wonder what he is doing in the military career, but hey ho.

He brought $5, 853 so the bank. And guess where some of that money is going.

“Atlantis’s lot.”

Nope. H&M, you. NOW!!!!

snapshot_c846660b_e8482bd6

snapshot_c846660b_c8482c47

While there was nothing WRONG with Amar’s default outfit, I did feel it was a LITTLE bit boring, so we swapped for a more casual, relaxed look for our future Chief of Staff.

snapshot_c846660b_c8482ec5

More of Amar’s money went towards giving Atlantis’s lot it’s first proper room. The bathroom.

Generation 1, Part 1

(Sorry about the low rez images. I didn’t realise the camera had defaulted until after the play was documented. Things improve from episode 4)

Generation 1, Part 1
Week – 1
Lot – 1 Legacy Lane

Atlantis Derp, Knowledge, 4 8 6 3 3, LTW to become a mad scientist. (SCIENCE \O/)

snapshot_c846660b_c84666fd

Well, Atlantis, welcome to your new home.

snapshot_c846660b_6846671e

“Where’s the house?”

Oh, we’re doing a legacy start. House will come as it comes.

“Why?”

Because it’s more fun that way.

“Fun?” I didn’t say fun for you.

snapshot_c846660b_88466775

“I hate you.”

I’m the player, you’re supposed to hate me. Besides it could be worse.

“HOW could it be WORSE.”

I could have seasons installed. Anyway, enough chatter. Let’s get you a house.

snapshot_c846660b_a84667e2

“What’s this?”

Don’t look at me, they were your aspirations.

snapshot_c846660b_0846683d

Okay, some slightly more practical wants now. Toilet and a fridge. Well done.

“Why is the toilet outside?”

Because you only have $40 left in the bank. Best you start looking for a job.

snapshot_c846660b_28466899

“Okay.”

Um…Atlantis, sweetheart, what are you doing?

“I’m looking for a job.”

I thought you were a knowledge Sim :-/]]>

snapshot_c846660b_084668f6

And the lot get’s its first visitor. Mayhew Sartor. Paper boy. Teenager. Looks REALLY happy to be here.

snapshot_c846660b_28466941

“Here, I only have $40 to my name, but you can have $5 of it.”

“Oh, why thank you ma’am. And…um…welcome to Derp Canyon.”

“Why thank you.”

snapshot_c846660b_2846699c

Her generosity paid of though. All the job possibilities out there, and the very first job in the very first paper is the Science Career track.

“Woot.”

snapshot_c846660b_284669d6

“Um…so…like…any chance for some privacy here?”

snapshot_c846660b_28466ac1

Next to visit the lot was Kerie Olshfski, who got on with Atlantis like a house on fire, despite their age difference.

snapshot_c846660b_48466b34

“Will any of your mad scientist experiments involve interstellar travel. I find aliens fascinating. I really hope I meet one one day.”

snapshot_c846660b_88466b71

“I’m not sure. I’ve never really considered myself to be a rocket scientist.”

snapshot_c846660b_e8466b9f

“Besides, what would you say to an alien if you met one.”

snapshot_c846660b_c8466bbe

“Why, I would say hello of course.”

The diplomat we didn’t know we needed.

snapshot_c846660b_28466be8

“I just hope the aliens don’t have any killer robots.”

snapshot_c846660b_28466c06

“I just hope the aliens know how to cook a decent breakfast.”

I SWEAR Atlantis followed up the robot conversation with a conversation about eggs.

snapshot_c846660b_c8466d24

The work carpool wasn’t due till the next day, and Atlantis still didn’t own a bed, so it was off downtown to work as a barrister for a bit, which also gave Atlantis the chance to scope the room a few times.

snapshot_c846660b_a8466d80

Why, hello there, Mr Turner.

snapshot_c846660b_88466ed5

snapshot_c846660b_88466dfc

It would appear that Atlantis agrees with my assessment. Only 1 bolt, but they do seem to get on well when chatting. Sadly the first conversation had to be kept brief because of barrista work, but it was a start, and it got Mr Turner into Atlantis’s phone book.

snapshot_c846660b_88466e94

By the way, it doesn’t show in a still picture, but this girl was literally shaking.

Okay, put down the coffee and step away from the barrista station.

snapshot_c846660b_c8466f79

Jim was still hanging around when Atlantis finished her shift, so they got chatting. Atlantis was already spinning up wants to interact with Jim.

snapshot_c846660b_c8466fdc

“Now you stop that dispicable flirting behaviour THIS INSTANT you silly girl.”

Oh I’d forgotten about her.

snapshot_c846660b_a8467011

Despite Mrs StickInAButt’s best efforts, we learned via Atlantis that Jim is a Leo.

snapshot_c846660b_28467043

He is POSSIBLY a fortune sim.

snapshot_c846660b_0846705b

And currently between jobs.

snapshot_c846660b_084670d7

It was getting late, and both Atlantis and Jim were hungry, so they headed over to the local diner to spend the money that should have been going towards a bed.

snapshot_c846660b_88467148

LOBSTER!!!

“Shhh. I’m trying to impress him.”

snapshot_c846660b_c8467166

Guess who will be napping on a park bench tonight. That’s right, it’s Atlantis.

snapshot_c846660b_c84673ad

And so Atlantis finished her first day in Derp Canyon with no bed and some pretty cool photographs

snapshot_c846660b_484673f0

Sorry Atlantis, but the telescope is getting sold. You need to sleep.

snapshot_c846660b_884674f5

And so tuesday dawned with Atlantis sneaking into the local gym to use the showers before grabbing a quick breakfast at the diner.

snapshot_c846660b_a84675e2

And as she sits at the counter, who should turn up but Jim Turner 😀 ❤ ❤

snapshot_c846660b_88467633

But…but WHAT IS THIS. Jim is at the Diner to meet Debbie Parker.

Atlantis says nothing. After all, her casual dinner with Jim the night before was JUST THAT. Casual. A group outing. It wasn’t a date. And maybe his meeting with Debbie wasn’t either. Maybe they were just friends. Or maybe she was his sister. Or maybe…

Atlantis ordered omlettes with a quiet voice.

snapshot_c846660b_e8467726

snapshot_c846660b_28467805

Nursing her soon to be broken heart, Atlantis scoped the room some more, and spotted Amar. 2 bolts this time 😀

snapshot_c846660b_48467840

And it looked like the attraction went both ways.

Anyway, Amar is a Sagittarius, and works in the military as a Flight Officer. Which means he will be moderately wealthy. Just saying.

snapshot_c846660b_4846795d

“Atlantis!”

“Jim.”

“What, were you just…flirting with him.”

“Yes, but you and I we…you were just having breakfast with another woman.”

snapshot_c846660b_a84679b4

“So you’re allowed to have breakfast with another girl, but I’m not allowed to talk to another boy.”

“Debbie and I are just friends.”

“Well maybe me and Amar are just friends.”

snapshot_c846660b_48467a00

So…um…this is happening.

snapshot_c846660b_a8467a3d

“Hey, don’t cry. Look I’m sorry if I caused something there, but you ask me, that guy was being a jerk.”

“No.” Atlantis sniffed. “I was the one in the wrong. I just, I assumed.”

“Always a dangerous thing. But hey, I’m sure you and that guy can talk it out later, if you want to.”

snapshot_c846660b_e8467a8d

“Nice girl like you, I doubt anyone could stay angry for long.”

snapshot_c846660b_a8467ad4

“Want me to have a word with him for you.”

“No. No it’s fine. I need to be getting to work. But, thank you Amar.”

“Any time, Atlantis. Hope we see each other again soon.”

“Yeah. Me too.”

snapshot_c846660b_88467e23

Unsurprisingly, Atlantis got out of work that day feeling pretty rotten (I’ve never seen a needs meter so down in the red where the sim wasn’t pregnant). She returned to the gym to use the showers, and tried to cheer herself up on the spinning machine. She felt awful for jumping to conclusions with regards to Jim, but she also felt angry at the way Jim treated her when he saw her talking to Amar.

And she had felt comforted by the way Amar had treated her afterwards. Even offering to try and make at start at patching things up with Jim for her.

snapshot_c846660b_a8467fe0

“Well, you certainly have alarms ringing around Derp Canyon. Everyone is talking about what happened in the Diner.”

“Must be a slow news day.”

snapshot_c846660b_08468019

“Just hope they move on to a new subject by tomorrow.”

snapshot_c846660b_c8468044

“Something tells me I’ll be getting a frosty reception of Joe’s friends for the next few days.”

“I wouldn’t worry too much. People around here tend to have short term memories.”

snapshot_c846660b_c84680ac

“Besides, Jim isn’t innocent either. It’s not like an open and shut case, is it.”

snapshot_c846660b_c84680e2

“Yeah, you’re right. I guess best thing I can do now is sleep, and see what tomorrow brings.”

“I think everything is going to be okay, Atlantis.”
