I think Gerald would like to recruit Otto as a minion - love his style! It's definitely Wendell-esque, but with a charm all its own. He definitely loves playing the alien card, hey? And Karla, too - can't wait to see how she turns out, but she's definitely a great decision. Congrats on moving her in good and early! :)

And since I was a couple of chapters behind, I also want to comment on the sim shaming: beautiful! The candy, and the mourning, and...yeah. As a watcher, I can so relate.

@MarianT Great Scott! You're right! I forgot to do a collage! Let's investigate this question of nose and chin, shall we?

Bonus picture of Goopy as a slightly terrifying alien child! Side note: if you edit an alien in sim form in cas down to a child, and then go back to live mode and have him remove his disguise:  HORRORS! Oh, my word, the horror. Don't ever do that. He was, like a half-child, half-adult, with a side of Edward Scissorhands. Cannot unsee.

*ahem* Back on topic, I think we have a strong chance of preserving Lucien's nose, but the Pancakes jaw may finally have gone by the wayside. Otto is adorably baby-faced, much like his Dad. We'll see.

@oshizu Thank you! I love that hair on him, too. It's surprisingly hard to dress Otto without his skin clashing with his clothes, so he's largely monochromatic as a child, but that hair, that hair! Perfection.

Poor Goopster, indeed. He's a pretty good sport, though.

Yeah, I think the zaniness is back big-time, with perhaps a bit more maliciousness, but we'll see. :)

I adore Karla. Yuki Behr has some really incredible genes, as of course you know from your Apocalypse Challenge. Karla is Yuki and Dimitri's granddaughter, and Ullal's daughter (with Presley the child-hater), and she just made out like a bandit with all of their best features! Oooh! Maybe I need to do a Karla collage!

@Whirligig Otto is 100% on board! He and Gerald would have a blast. He does love playing up his alien status, although unfortunately he inherited exactly zilch in terms of alien powers. He can't even do the secret handshake. I'm having him overcompensate by telling tall tales. :)

Karla isn't quite moved in yet. We don't have room until somebody *ahem* leaves us, but she did get a nice makeover courtesy of the closet, and now it's just a matter of time.

Glad you enjoyed the sim-shaming! I plan to keep doing it!

Chapter 53:  Foreshadowing

Arianna:  Okay, now I feel like youíre just mocking me.

Wendell:  What? I just got off work! Man, I cannot wait until Pernille is ready for ambrosia. Being the junior member of the Immortals is the pits. I canít do anything right. And while weíre on the subject, Morris is wearing his swimming trunks today! Pick on him for once!

Morris:  The thing is, Wendell, mine are a very understated grey, with a nice pop of turquoise to add a sense of fun, while still being chic and dignified. Your swim trunks have fluorescent palm trees on them. You see the difference?

Wendell: No.

Morris:  Well, I guess thatís what we have to expect from our Junior Member.

Arianna:  Yes, dear. Respect your elders.

Wendell:  I AM my elders!

Morris:  He doesnít get it.

Arianna:  Give him time.

Wendell:  Grrrr.

Otto:  So watch out for my Dad, Angel. He could transform at any second into his flesh-eating slug form, and at that point weíll just have to hope heís not hungry.

Angel:  Heís sitting right there. Isnít he going to get mad that youíre talking about him like that?

Otto:  Nah. If I say anything he doesnít like, heíll just erase your memory.

Goopy:  Actually, thatís a good point. I can erase memories.

Angel:  You wouldnít really eat me, would you, sir?

Goopy:  Oh, heck yeah! Iíd lick your bones clean. *winks at Otto* The Goopster is in on the joke!

Mallory:   So yeah, youíll want to think about perspective and line and . . . .whatever, youíre fine.  Youíre going to have this maxed in about four seconds.

Otto:  I know, right? Iím totally amazing.

Mallory:  No, you were just born into incredible privilege, but youíre really cute so you can call yourself amazing if you want.

Otto:  I plan to!

Catherine:  Agh! What is this for?

Wendell:  I was just noticing how stunning you look today, my love, and I wanted to seize the moment to show you how much I love you.

Catherine:  Oh, no. Why arenít you at work?

Wendell:  Actually, I just retired. I want to spend every possible moment with you.

Catherine:  Youíre not fooling me! I know what this means. WATCHER! I got my first notice, didnít I?

Watcher:  Shhh. Canít you just enjoy it?

Catherine:  Oh, man. Massages, now?  Iím going to croak any minute, arenít I?

Wendell:  Itís nothing like that, dear. I just want to take good care of you.

Catherine:  . . . While you still can?  Didnít you leave out the last part of that sentence?

Wendell:  Quiet, now. Youíre too tense. Look. Morris is getting a massage, too, and heís not dying.

Morris:  Oh, wow. We do not do this enough.

Arianna:  Donít get used to it. Weíre just a decoy so Catherine wonít suspect anything.

Morris:  Donít care why. Just donít stop.

Arianna:   And they actually believed you that your Dadís got sixteen rows of teeth in the back of his head?  Oh, thatís hilarious!

Otto:  Oh, yeah! It was great! You should hear what I told them about you!

Arianna:  You will respect your elders, young man, and I expect a full written apology and thank you cards from all your friends for all the meals and homework help, and everything else they get at this house.

Otto:  But, Grandma, all I said was-

Seth:  Let it go, man. Iíve seen her like this before. You donít want to mess with Madam Founder.

Watcher:  Oh yeah, that cat impersonation is still going strong. Very nice.

Catherine:  *hiss* Still got it!

Catherine:  I gotta say. If I werenít already planning to haunt this house, I would definitely plan to come back for the lobster thermidor. This stuff is amazing.

Watcher:  Take some notes from Lucien, will you?  Heís a solid guy, and a real credit to the deceased members of the household. Does the dishes. Stuff like that.

Catherine:  No way, Watcher. Iím planning to enjoy my afterlife. Iím going to break every toilet, one by one, then take a lobster break and start in on the bathtubs. Itís going to be amazing.

Otto:  Dang, everybodyís teen-ing up. Whereíd my pirate crew go?

Otto:  Avast, me hearties! Weigh anchor for Isla Paradiso!  Awww . . . come on! Somebody jump in. Youíre taller, youíre not physically incapable of having fun.

Otto:  Ah, look! Just off the port bow, a bunch of losers about to be kicked out of my awesome club and replaced with younger children who donít enjoy texting and arenít a total drag!

Morris:  Now, Goopy, are you sure you donít want to measure that?  Ice cream is really an exact science, and the balance of flavors can be thrown off by just the slightest slip of the hand, destroying the delicate play between sweet, salty and sour.

Goopy:  Yeah, but then I can just throw a bunch of nuts on top and nobody will care, right?  Chocolate sauce can save anything.

Morris:  *sigh*

Catherine:  Oh, cripes. Poetry, now?  I got my second notice, didnít I? I am so done for. If he asks me on a date, now, Iíll know the clock is really ticking.

Catherine:  And, yes. Just as I thought. Complete with two flirty ghosts to remind me of exactly where Iím headed.

Wendell:  Honey, Iím making a sincere effort to fill your final days with joy and let you know how important you are to me. Could you just lighten up for five seconds and enjoy it?

Catherine:  Oh, okay. Letís go make out on a bench.

Wendell:  Thatís the spirit!

Morris:  Is this weird? I feel sort of weird. It might be the making out, or it might be the fact that Iím still in my pajamas, but Iím definitely uncomfortable.

Wendell:  Maybe itís because you werenít invited on this date, and just decided to show up despite having no purpose here.

Morris:  Nah. Thatís not it.

Watcher:  Uhhhh, Mallory? Who are you hugging? You donít know that guy. Catherine, Iím sorry to interrupt your date, but Mallory showed up, too, and sheís hugging some random dude, and-

Catherine:  Little busy right now.

Watcher:  Oh, gosh! Sorry. You should definitely focus on what youíre doing so you donít break something.

Catherine:  Tell that to Wendell.

Morris:  My word, that was disturbing. Iím not reading any more placards. I do not need to know anything else about these folks.

Watcher:  What is he so happy about? Checking out the moodlets here  . . . Catherine! When did you woohoo in a bush? I didnít tell you to do that. I only looked away for a second!

Catherine:  You wanted me to enjoy myself.

Mallory:  Oh, look. A Masterpiece. *yawn*

Catherine:  Well, thank you, honey. That was very sweet.

Wendell:  Itís where we had our very first date, do you remember?

Catherine:  You know, itís hard to forget being kissed by a giant hot dog. Iíve tried, but . . .

Wendell:  I love you.

Catherine:  Iíll always love you, too.

Another absurdly hilarious update!

But first, I loved the collage with Otto and his parents' child-age portraits. And yes, A Karla collage would be most welcome!

Lol, Morris can even be snobby about his swimwear! I just love him! And, of course, if he goes to the Von Haunt Estate, he simply has to sit on the same bench as Wendell and Catherine.
Otto talking to himself in the pirate gym's crow's nest is too funny. I can't wait to see him as a teen.

Awww, no! The self-aware Catherine narrating her final days. *gulps and grabs a tissue
Loved her last line in this chapter about being kissed by a hot dog, hahahaha.

Aww, poor Wendell. He just can't win at those Ambrosia meetings, can he?

Otto continues to be totally adorable.

Oh no, not Catherine! :-( I know she's not dead yet, but I'm really going to miss her.

Poor Otto - I agree, teens are a total drag!

Morris is going to be such a great food critic!

I don't think you ever have to actually worry about your immortals getting boring. They're really, really not.

@MarianT Me either! I didn't think I wanted to be an active Watcher, but I'm really going to miss talking with Catherine. She's been a good friend.

@oshizu Thank you! I'll work on the collage. Maybe it will be a moving-in present for Karla. :) Morris is so great. He really manages to make his presence felt even thought the main part of his story is over.

@Whirligig Yeah, poor Wendell. He just seems like a goofy teenager to me, no matter how old he gets. I like to pick on him. I'm so excited to have Morris embark on his second career, but of course due to playing-ahead it's going to be a little while before that can appear in the story. Thank you for saying my immortals are not boring! That makes me very happy!

As a side note, I was tickled to find that over the weekend my status on the forum changed from "Occult" to "Immortal!" I guess that means as far as the forum is concerned, I get to eat my ambrosia now! Hooray!

Chapter 54: Creepiness Contest

Wendell:  So, I donít know if youíre aware, Otto, but my reading aloud skills are quite legendary.

Otto:  Yeah, I seem to recall hearing something about ďthe voices.Ē

ďWorraworraworraworraworra, ď said Whatever-it-was, and Pooh found that he wasnít asleep after all.

ďWhat can it be?Ē he thought. ďThere are lots of noises in the Forest, but this is a different one. Its isn't a growl, and it isnít a purr, and it isnít a bark , and it isnít the noise-you-make-before-beginning-a-piece-of-poetry . . .Ē

Otto:  Ah, yes. I see what all the hype was about now.

Pernille:  I feel like Iím really getting into a groove with these parties. Iím actually starting to enjoy them a bit.

Arianna:  Youíre doing a lovely job, honey.

Pernille:  Awww, thanks Gram.

Goopy:  What is THIS?  A perfectly platonic conversation with your elderly relative?  UNACCEPTABLE! Itís like youíre trying to drive me crazy! Do you take pleasure in pushing my buttons?

Pernille:  Okay, time for cake. Goopy, hon. What did we say about irrational jealous rages?

Goopy:  Wait until after the party goes gold?

Pernille:  Thatís right. Now go get yourself a drink. Iíll come give you a massage in a minute.

Pernille:  Yum! Okay, then. Hereís to no more parties!

Gwendolyn:  Hear, hear!

Pernille:  Happy birthday to me!

Goopy:  Do you see me making coffee back here, honey?  Iím getting a drink like you said, and also completing a party task. Iím doing good, right?

Pernille:  Youíre doing awesome, honey. Iím so proud of you. Just give me a sec here and Iíll pat you on the back.

Pernille:  Ugh. Maturity.

Goopy:  Hooray! Weíre the same age, again. I feel slightly less threatened.

Pernille:  Way to look on the bright side, hon.

Catherine:  And right on schedule. At least somebody in this house knows how to wait until the party goals are completed to make a scene.

Watcher:  Aw, man. Already?  You had all that fitness skill from that time you were an astronaut. I thought youíd hang on longer.

Catherine:  Itís for the best. Now you can move in that cute red-headed girl and start farming her for youth potions.

Watcher:  But who will I talk to?

Catherine:  You could always make Otto insane . . .

Watcher:  Itís a thought, but . . . it wonít be the same.

Catherine:  I appreciate you saying that.

Watcher:  Farewell, old friend. Donít forget to visit.

Catherine:  How could i? My reign of toilet-breaking, lobster-eating terror begins tonight!

Wendell:  Nope. Nopenopenope. Uh-uh.

Grim:  Donít tell me youíre still creeped out by this? You have to have seen dozens of these.

Wendell:  You greatly underestimate your own creepiness, friend.

Pernille:  Okay, got a new dress, lookiní like a mature lady and . . . did it suddenly get really cold in here?

Grim:  Aaaaand gotcha!

Watcher:  Wendell was right, you are profoundly creepy.

Grim:  Hey, youíre the disembodied voice echoing in my head, I think in a creepiness competition we might be evenly matched.

Watcher:  Wait, you can hear me now?

Grim:  I must have absorbed something from Catherine here. Sometimes I take on the attributes of the reaped when I absorb their vital essence.

Watcher:  Nah, dude. Youíre definitely leaving me in the creepiness dust over here. Bravo. Ten points.

Grim:  Why, thank you. ĎScuse me. Iím going to go breathe loudly and watch some TV.

Watcher:  Keep on creepiní on there, friend.

Morris:  So, young man. Any questions about death?

Otto:  Did you know I used to work in a funeral parlor? I got sacked for making a grave mistake.

Morris:  Youíre taking this remarkably well.

Otto:  Eh. All you old folks have maxed wellness now, so Iíve heard all the detox secrets ad nauseum. Nothing really gets to me for very long.

Morris:  I . . . guess thatís healthy.

Morris:  I have to hand it to you, Eduardo, you still look amazing. Pink is really your color.

Eduardo:  Morris, my friend, when you're a semi-living legend, youíve got to keep up appearances.

Morris:  Look at you, man! Youíre still pulling off the speedo!

Eduardo:  Not literally anymore, sadly. If only I could pollinate from beyond the grave. Imagine the handsome little pink ghost babies weíd have running around town.

Otto:  You know I used to work as a pool cleaner, but I couldnít live on my net income.

Pernille:  Okay, Karla, stand aside. Iím going to be helping my son with his homework today.

Karla:  Are you sure, Maíam? I really donít mind.

Pernille:  Iíve got to get my parenting in while I can, all right? Plus, youíre already in. Thereís no need to kiss up, anymore.

Karla:  Whatever you say, Maíam.

Otto:  Itís really too bad this Eggs Benedict isnít on a plate made of chrome. Thereís no plate like chrome for the hollandaise.

Watcher:  You are all GROUNDED, do you hear me? I mean, I know you donít, but youíre grounded, anyway! Just you wait until Catherine visits! In the meantime, go across the street and fish and think about how lame you are.

Wendell:  Wow, you kids are really serious about helping each other with your homework!

Gwendolyn:  Well, it seemed to work for Karla, so weíre kind of hoping thereís a chance one of us can sneak in and maybe steal the crown.

Angelica Kane:  Or, you know, just get a makeover out of it. Iím not super fond of these pants. I donít hate them, but I donít want to wear them for the rest of my life.

Otto:  I wish I could help you out. I used to be a tailor, but I found the work only sew-sew.

Wendell:  And Grampa wins out!

Otto:  Thanks Grampa Wendell. It was getting a little intense in there. I mean, I know Iím hot stuff, but Iím not quite ready to have the ladies scratching each otherís eyes out over me.

Wendell:  Yeah, you should at least be a teen yourself, first.

Otto:  Exactly.

Wendell:  Tada!

Pernille:  Tada!

Mallory:  You know, as the only one with maxed fishing, youíd think I wouldnít be the only one not catching angelfish.

Pernille:  I'm sure the fish are just intimidated by you.

Mallory:  Don't patronize me.

Otto:  Angelica, again? I mean, donít get me wrong, Iím clearly into older women, but this is getting a little ridiculous, donít you think?

Angelica:  Do you want to level Comedy, or not? Tell me another joke.

Otto:  Okay . . . remember you asked for it.

Wow, for all his dashing good lucks, The Goopster is soooo high-maintenance! I love how you've written his character!

I really liked Pernille's flowery black party dress but I like her new turquoise one-piece, too. Very classy! And now she matches Otto's skintone.
Congrats on completing her party requirements. I imagine 5 parties must feel like petty cash after Wendell's aspiration-induced partython.

What a charmer Otto is! His lame jokes made me giggle...

Congratulations, @FrancescaFiori , on becoming Immortal! ;-)

Can storytime with Wendell also become a regular feature? It sounds like so much fun!

Oh Pernille, this is a dynasty. The parties never end.

Oh no! Not Catherine! :( Awww, I am so going to miss her, she was such an awesome sim!

Haha, but maybe conversations between Grimmy and Watcher will keep us entertained, and remind us a little bit of Catherine, for the remainder of the Dynasty? Sorry you were out-creeped.

So is Otto going for Joke Star? Those Dad jokes were beautiful, and apparently they made him super popular with the teens, (that really made me laugh). I love that he's already made up his mind which one he wants, but they're still after him anyways.

Shame! Shame on all of you for mourning! (Also, I think gravestones have to be three full squares away from a fence for sims to not be able to mourn through the fence.

@oshizu Thanks! I didn't even realize Pernille's new dress matched Otto's skin. Family coordination! Cute! Clearly I'm fond of that color. Parties still feel like a drag. It's a shame, because I used to really like them, but I'm pretty party-weary. I do have a bunch of mods for different kinds of parties stashed away in a "for when I'm not playing a dynasty" file on my desktop and I wish I could shake it up now and then with a baby shower or bachelorette party, but that will have to be for another time.

@Whirligig Thank you! Immortality is treating me well, so far. :) I don't see why Storytime with Wendell can't make a return (or two). It was funniest the first time because so many adults came around to listen as well, but regardless of audience size, he clearly has a gift. :)
I'm going to miss Catherine, too. She was something special.
Otto is doing Joke Star. I'm glad you like the Dad jokes. They were inspired by (and in some cases, stolen from) my actual Dad. Except for the really, really bad ones. Those I made up.
Thanks for the fence/mourning advice. I think I've given up. The lot just isn't big enough to keep them away from the graves, and they can just step over the short fences, anyway. Now I just punish them. I just installed a bubble blower, so maybe the new punishment for mourning will be blowing fire bubbles. Or eating spicy food. Thank you, new expansion pack, for giving me new ways of getting back at my Sims. ;)

Chapter 55:  Lucky in Love

Otto:  Goodbye, my dear childhood friend. You were my key to getting attention from the ladies, and this is the last time weíll get to hang out. Thank you, homework, for being the perfect wingman.

Otto:  Childhood is fleeting, NBF. Never forget that.

NBF:  The way youíve forgotten my name?

Otto:  Yes. Like that.

Angel:  Hey, Loser. How do you like being such a loser?

Otto:  Iím going to be as big as you are in about five minutes, buddy, with much higher mischief skill, so you should probably watch what you say.

Otto:  Nice! Say what you will about this club, they came through for the birthday party! Iím so glad youíre all here!

*five seconds later*

Otto:  NOBODY LOOK AT ME! I got the bad Spa Day hair! NO PICTURES!

Otto:  Okay, phew! Thatís better. Karla. Hey. There. Heya.

Karla:  Hey handsome. Iíve been waiting for this day for awhile.

Otto:  So hey.

Karla:  Yeah. I think weíve got the ďheyĒ part covered.

Otto:  You know, if you were a fruit, you would totally be a fine-apple.

Karla:  *cocks head to side* Okay.

Karla:  Okay, can I tell you a secret? Iíve pretty much been yours since the day we met, okay? Just donít worry about it. Youíre super lucky. You probably donít deserve me, but weíve only got a couple of days until I age up to Young Adult, so letís make the most of it. Why donít you ask me on a date?

Otto:  Okay, then. Just easing my way into this nice, friendly hug ohmanyousmellsogoodpleasebemygirlfriend?

Karla:  What?

Otto:  Mmmmmm. Huuuuugs.

Otto:  This is clearly the next logical move.

Karla:  Clearly. Letís go out.

Otto:  I thought of a thing. A thing that girls like. Here. You like this.

Karla:  Yeah, okay. Itís fine. I want coffee.

Karla:  I guess I never realized how weird you are before.

Otto:  Too late now! Iím all yours, baby!

Karla:  Yeah, I mean, itís okay. Youíre cute and youíre rich and . . . actually thatís all. Iím fine.

Otto:  Donít forget about smooth. Iím also super duper smooth.

Karla:  I see that.

Karla:  Iím pretty sure youíre got more moves than that. I mean, Iím sitting over here, being way hot, and Iím just waiting for you.

Otto:  Okay, okay. I got this. I can put these hormones to use. Give me a sec.

Otto:  How about if I . .. TICKLE YOU!?!?!

Karla:  OMG STOP IT!

Karla:  Here, let me show you how this is done.

Otto:  Okay, okay. I like this. I can hang with this.

Otto:  Howís this for a move?

Karla:  Fine, except that my mom is, literally, right there. Not something I envisioned her witnessing.

Otto:  So . . will you be my girlfriend? Iím still not clear on if you actually like me or not.

Karla:  I told you donít worry about it. I will totally be your girlfriend. I donít necessarily like you, but I want to be with you, do you understand?

Otto:  No, but Iím really excited!  Girlfriend!

Otto:  Now, what do you say we get cozy and do some biology?

Karla:  Thatís only sexy if youíre using it as a euphemism.

Otto:  Okay, then letís get cozy and you can teach me the meaning of the word ďeuphemism.Ē

Karla:  Again, only sexy if you arenít literally asking me to help expand your vocabulary.

Otto:  Iím thinking this date will go a lot better once my homework is finished.

Karla:  Well, I canít argue that you have a lot to learn.

Otto:  Okay, things are going well. Iím a super-cool guy. Iíve got a super-hot girlfriend. Sheís a little mean, but sheís super-hot. Plus, I just stole a pile of crates, so Iím feeling pretty darn good about myself.

Karla:  Hello! Youíre full of energy all of a sudden!

Otto:  Yup! Definitely not from stealing! Stealing is thrilling, though. Have I ever told you about the thrill of the steal? We should go, though, before someone misses those crates. The ones I definitely didnít just steal.

Karla:  Okay, itís a little early in the morning for that move.

Otto:  It worked last night, and Iím sticking with it!

Karla:  This move I like better.

Otto:  Progress!

Otto:  Windenburg is so gorgeous.

Karla:  I hear San Myshuno is even prettier.

Otto:  Yeah, but we canít go for awhile. My grandma Catherine said something about the Watcher power-playing until our kid is born so she can have her pick of baby-daddies in the new city when it comes out.

Karla:  This is your insane grandmother Catherine who just died?

Otto:  Thatís the one!

Karla:  Okay, then.

Otto:  So, while weíre still by this pretty waterfall, do you want to get promised?

Karla:  Sure. Whatever.

Otto:  Awesome!

Awww, Otto aged up with the Lucien schnozzle and the Klepto trait.
Otto, don't you realize that Karla is making all those digs at your intelligence and yet you just let them slide? (Or didn't you notice?)
Another notch in the Watcher's belt for an adorable Spiffendale couple! I love the smart and sassy Karla with the irrepressible Otto!!!
Karla's so much smarter than him, but he's having so much fun he doesn't care. He mentions that she's a little mean---what are her traits?

And omg, that teen "Seduce" move. I wonder if the dev who thought that up has an active love life?  That move never fails to crack me up.
I'm happy that the two exchanged promise rings before they're separated by the age gap.

Also, what did this line mean? Does Karla play otome games or something? Hahaha
Karla: I donít necessarily like you, but I want to be with you, do you understand?

Another fabulous chapter. Thank you!

Aww, what a cute update! Yep, yet another made-for-each-other couple for the Spiffendales. They certainly complement each other. :)

I LOL'd at the bit about biology euphemisms.

@oshizu Yes, Karla may have a touch of the tsundere about her. It's a relationship dynamic I've become *ahem* interested in lately. Actually, upon closer examination of the conversations between myself and my husband, I think I may have a touch of the tsundere about me, too. Shocking!

In case anybody is confused/interested (I know you're out out there, version-of-me-from-a-year-ago-who-reads-voraciously-but-never-comments. I believe you are there, and I love you!) I've recently started playing otome games and oshizu is very graciously explaining all of the parts of them that don't make sense to me, like maid/butler cafes and boyfriends who are mean to you and call you names because they love you so much. It's a blast!

And yes, the shnozz lives on, much to the delight of the watcher.

Karla's traits are actually Art Lover and Good at this point. But that was boring, so I've given her a hidden Mean Girl trait. We'll see how it works out.

@Whirligig Thank you! Honestly, I was trying to make Karla a bit unlikeable, just to shake things up, but I guess I'm not very good at that. It's okay with me, though, because I want Otto to be happy. I'm glad you think they are perfect for each other. :)

Chapter 56:  Foolproof

Otto:  Okay, then. Down to business! Letís go find some people and mess with them! I need to get disliked and quickly!

Karla:  Race you!

Otto:  Okay, letís warm up with a few jokes to get in the mood.

Karla:  Nothing about bakeries or factories or funeral parlors, though, okay?

Otto:  You are killing me, sweetie.

Otto:  Hey, jerkface! Did you know the apocalypse is coming? Want to hear about it in detail?

Jerkface:  I donít have to stand here and listen to this.

Otto:  *mocking* I donít have to stand here and listen to this.

Karla:  Not your best, baby. Iíd aim a little higher with the next one.

Otto:  I might do better if youíre not watching me.

Karla:  Whatever. Iím tired, anyway.

Otto:  BOO!

Theresa Munch:  Ahh! What a mean thing to- Oh, look I got a text!

Otto:  Um, excuse me? Iím trying to get you to dislike me. Itís kind of important? Could you pay attention?

Theresa:  Yeah, sure, just a sec. I need to check my e-mail.

Otto:  People in this town are way too easy-going.

Otto:  Oh, hey! I hope youíre enjoying this beautiful sunset . . . with your stupid face!

Theresa Munch:  What a horrible and not-very-creative thing to say!

Otto:  You know what? Iíve been out here all day. Iím exhausted, and I need to insult some people. Iím not going to be creative about it, anymore.

Crop Top:  Iím offended by your lack of effort. I dislike you.

Otto:  FINALLY! Okay, then, back to the jokes and pranks.

Otto:  Ay! Grampa Lucien! Great nose! Did I ever tell you about the time I was a taxi driver?

Lucien:  You couldnít hack it?

Otto:  Future-Grandmother-In-Law Yuki! Did I ever tell you about the time I was a stockbroker?

Yuki Behr:  You lost interest?

Wendell:  Ooof! I am out of practice. I am honestly surprised there is not a death associated with this dance move. Ow.

Candy Behr:  Ouch. I am so embarrassed for you. How lame.

Wendell:  Well hey, I'm still down on the floor, why don't you come and literally kick me, too?

Wendell:  Back on the horse!

Otto:  Pretzel break! Hey! A bartender. I should branch out into bartender jokes!

Otto:  A guy walks into a bar with some jumper cables, and the bartender says, ďHey! Donít start anything!Ē

Otto:  I got more. You want more? The Watcher seems to really like my face from this angle, so we could be here for awhile.

Otto:  No, Iím just pulling your leg. I know thereís no Watcher. I am really cute from this angle, though.

Wendell:  Another round, please, and keep Ďem coming. The throbbing in my head hasnít quite gone away yet.

Otto:  Want to see my crazy eyes? CRAZY EYES!

Wendell:  Oops! Just got my notice. Sorry, son. Weíve got to head home so Grampa can eat his ambrosia.

Otto:  Thatís okay, Grampa. Iím running pretty thin on material, here, anyway.

Wendell:  I think we get cooler every time. Our synchronization is really on point tonight.

Gemma:  Hey guys.

Arianna:  Hey . . . Gemma. Did you just . . . float in here?

Gemma:  Yup.

Arianna:  So any and all ghosts on this property can come into this room whenever they want to, just by floating through the wall?

Gemma:  Uh-huh.

Arianna:  So if youíd wanted to, you could have eaten all of this ambrosia at any time.

Gemma:  Well, yeah, but I didnít want to be rude. Plus, if I regained corporeal form Iíd have no way of getting out of here again, so . . .

Arianna:  *sigh* Morris, would you mind keeping the ambrosia in your inventory from now on? It seems this whole teleportation-only room idea was not as foolproof as weíd thought.

Gemma:  Foolproof? Iíd say it was downright foolhardy! Now, if I were trying to protect the food of the gods-

Arianna:  Oh, yes. By all means sit down and tell us how you feel. Iím so very in the mood to hear about how all my plans are foolish and all my work is meaningless.

Gemma:  Well, not all of them. I just have some helpful critiques. I am a genius.

Arianna:  Mmmmhmmm.

I do love the Otto/Karla dynamics. She always calls him out when he's trying to be blase or he's unproductively trying too hard.

And yes, perfect! Otto's "Be Disliked by 2 sims" goal completes when the second sim's unhappy with the quality of Otto's jokes. Too funny!

I don't play ghosts ever so I'm not speaking from experience but, when I googled, I read that a ghost must be a household member then instructed to eat Ambrosia.
That's only what I read, so I'm wondering if your Ambrosia is safe. Still, who wants ghosts taking museum items off their shelves and such.

I hope you can resolve this issue.  I never tire of seeing the immortals teleport into the room and have their exclusive, somewhat-snarky convos. :D

Ok, I'd love to say something wonderful and witty about all the different things your Sims are saying and doing but that would mean I would have to stop laughing at Otto's lame puns and jokes or no longer chuckle at Wendell, or the swim trunks or.....well, you get the drift.  Great updates, which I just caught up on, by the way.  Still loving this really funny story.

So happy Otto got the nose, and I love his jokes. It'll be interesting to see what Otto's and Karla's child looks like.
