I should probably begin this log by (re)introducing our heir for Generation 2:
Traits: Bookworm, Perfectionist, Loves the Outdoors
Aspiration: Nature > Angling Ace
Dark brown eyes & hair, fair skin, average/curvy build.
The days following Anemone’s death were hard. Between the sobbing and constantly looking over our shoulders for Social Services, the twins and I were pretty much a wreck when they aged up.
With no inheritance in sight and less than 1200 simoleons to their name, Burdock and Buttercup knew paying bills was going to be a problem. So we went through and sold off all the extra collectibles and produce we’d been lugging around, and bought some skill objects in the hopes that a small investment upfront would make career growth a bit easier for them.
Figuring I was being smart, I set up a desk in the child bedroom for a microscope. Yeahhh.. no way that thing was gonna fit on a desk. ;D
Bought a telescope too, which I just assumed must be the size of a whale. It was.
What’s that? Oh, I forgot to tell you, didn’t I?
Buttercup and Garrett are kind of a thing.
Well, I mean to say, they’re actually married. Why look around for something new when you have something so perfect right there in your lap, right?
Traits: Geek, Childish, Music Lover
Aspiration: Family > Big Happy Family
Not too shabby! I’m most excited about his darker skin tone, full lips, and that marvelous chin, all new to our genes. Black hair too! Don’t tell Buttercup but sometimes I like to stare at his toned chest when he walks around in his PJ pants, which is like.. constantly. *fans self*
Anyway, back to the telescope! That thing is super badass. We get these really neat space prints from it that we can hang on the wall. I want these for my house IRL!
When his sister and her beau aren’t in the observation tower doing.. things.. (eww) Burdock loves looking into space. He finally realized Genius status when he became an adult, though it was obvious from his behavior through his teen years that he was destined for cerebral pursuits. He’s decided to aim for the stars and become an Astronaut. His brainy father would have been so proud!
I’ve pretty much decided to let Burdock stay here at the family house. He and Buttercup are so close (still BFFs) and we really need the stability he brings. Besides, he’s quite eager to meet his new little niece or nephew! 😉
