Artie's Lunar Lunacy
« on: March 11, 2012, 04:08:09 PM »

Artie's Lunar Lunacy

At first he was a non-believer, having been sent by The Boss as punishment.  The second time around he was a man determined to finish the challenge because the lives of his former family were in the hands of The Boss.  When The Boss called on him for a little playtime, the insane one took a wrong step during the conversation in his haste to get back to his new family.  Now he's having to start all over again

Previously on Artie's New Insanity...


Artie: "What in blue blazes?  Where am I?"
The Boss:  "Hello Artie.. Join me."


The Boss:  "Join me, Artie."
Artie: "I don't trust that sing song voice of yours, Boss."
The Boss: -grinning- "I don't know what you mean.."


Artie: "Just cut to the chase already."
The Boss:  "I just wanted to play some hopscotch, Artie."


Artie: -mocking- "I just wanted to play some hopscotch."


The Boss: "You know I don't enjoy being mocked, Artie."
Artie: "Boss, I think you brought me here for a reason.  The little guy in my head right here says that you took my family again.  Didn't you?"
The Boss: "Why do you have to make things hard on yourself, Artie?"
Artie: "I don't know but the fly says he has an idea about that."


The Boss: "There is something seriously wrong with your brain chemistry."
Artie: "You don't have to get upset, Boss."


The Boss: "Upset?  Upset?  I haven't even begun to get upset.  All I wanted was a little game of hopscotch.   But noooo.  You have to push the issue, didn't you Artie?"
Artie: "Boss.. I didn't mean anything by it.  I just want to finish the dynasty like you asked.  Just like you asked.  I'm so close to ambrosia if you just let me go back."


The Boss: "You think I'm going to let you just go back now.   After all this trouble you've been giving me.  You didn't even play one silly round with me Artie.  Why should I let you go back to your comfortable life?"
Artie: "Please, Boss.  Please.  I've been good.  I supermaxed my skill. I'm one night away from taking over the Organization again.  Angela is doing so well in school.  We're doing everything you asked.  Just like you asked."
The Boss: -waves her little black hand around- "Too late."
Artie: "But Boss.."
The Boss: "Don't interrupt me, Artie.  I've decided I don't like you being in Hidden Springs with all those green-skinned do-gooders.  No, I think they are corrupting you.  I think you've lost touch with what it means to be a Grim."
Artie: "I don't want to start over.  I don't need to start over. " -stomps his foot- "I won't start over."


The Boss: "No!  We're done here and I'm done with you.  It's time you leave Artie."
Artie: "Where am I going?"
The Boss: "To the Moon, Artie!"


…. "Whoops.  Too Far."

I am guessing Artie is going to Lunar Lakes.

So sorry you had to restart.

Thank you Rachel. 

Part of me is glad for the restart and another part of me is just relieved that I don't have to be frustrated with HS lag anymore.   I just realized how dark The Boss is in those pictures too.   It's the same little girl I used from the last time don't know why she's so much darker in the daylight.

Rica: "Artie…. Artie.. Arrtiee!"
Artie: -jerks awake- "Wha.  Hey! Where the heck am I?"
Rica: "Hey you're awake finally.  You ok there big man?"
Artie:  "Yeah I think.. What's going on?"
Rica: "Well I finally found you.  You were sailing through space towards I don't know what.  You made The Boss really mad and she sent you this way. "
Artie: "I noticed then things got dark and cold."
Rica: "By the time I found you, you were so cold you were becoming a white man."
Artie: "Do I still have all my appendages?"
Rica: "Don't look at me.  I didn't check.  You'll have to do that yourself when we land."
Artie: "Where we headed to anyway?  Bridgeport, Sunset Valley, Twinbrook?"
Rica: "I'm afraid you're too far away to land in any of those places.  It was easier just to put you on course for Lunar Lakes."
Artie: "The Lost Colony!  I can't believe it.  What am I supposed to do there?"
Rica: "Finally finish a dynasty, maybe?"
Artie: -grumble- "They've been off world for nearly three generations.  No one knows anything about them."
Rica: "I know a little bit about them.  I got all the information I was willing to share and packed it in there somewhere.   I think it's under Bigglesworth."
Artie: "What's the furball doing here!?"
Rica: "Who do you think told me where to find you?"
Artie: -grumble- "Fine.. I'll read this while you leave me alone."

A couple hours later…

*CRASH*


Mr Bigglesworth: "Nice Landing, you giant red idiot."
Artie: "Hey who you calling an idiot, furball."
Mr Bigglesworth: "They guy who back talks The Boss, that's who."
Artie: "I deserve that.. You look a little dirty though."
Mr Bigglesworth: "I feel dirty I just spent an unknown length of time in a space pod that you just crashed into this strange planet.  Also my fur feels really weird.  I think it's time I take a bath.." -goes to lick himself-


Artie: -hides spray paint can and scissors in the trash can, whistling-
Mr Bigglesworth: "Ahhh!" -hisses at Artie- "What did you do to me?"
Artie: "I made you prettier and gave you less chance to get furballs."
Mr Bigglesworth: "I'm going to make you bleed, Come here right this instant."


Artie: "You have to catch me first!"
Mr Bigglesworth: "Well don't just sit there and watch woman.  Make him stop so I can attack him."
Rica: "Oh no.  We need him to go get a job and start taking care of business.  Look at what I found over here.. it's a new toy."
Artie: "I think I'll just go get that job at the Orbital Distribution center we talked about.  Oh and to go meet my  new best friend."
Mr Bigglesworth: "Is that.. cat..nip.  Must.. attack.. little pink mousey."
Rica: "Run!"


~Meet Victim #1: Alexander Cross, husband of Victim #2 Patricia Cross~
Artie: "Hello Mr Cross.  I'm so glad you invited me inside your house.  I was hoping we could chat for a little bit."
Alexander: "I don't know you and I don't think you're very impressive.  Why don't you just leave me alone."
Artie: "Are you sure I don't impress you?  I wanted to talk about the science career and the logic, gardening and handiness skills with you."


Alexander: "Wow.  You're an okay guy, Artie Grim.  Maybe we can hang out and become friends."
Artie: -1 star celebrity status achieved-  "I would like that very much.  Do you mind if I ask what you do for a living?"
Alexander: "I'm glad you asked.  I'm a Mad Scientist at the Perigree.  I love work and getting promotions."
Artie: -two new traits learned- "Really?  Well I applaud you for all your hard work.  I really like science, too.  It has given us lots of stuff."
Alexander: "Thank you and I really like science as well.  It's a fascinating career choice for geniuses like myself."
Artie: -new trait learned- "Yes yes I can see that you're a very clever man.  Tell me does a clever man such as yourself like computers?"
Alexander: "I love computers!"
Artie: -new shared trait learned- "Me too!"
Alexander: "Amazing how that works isn't it."
Artie: "I also really applaud you for your work ethic.  Everyone should be as hard working as you."
Alexander: "Thank you.  I agree."
Artie: "You are just so clever.  If only the whole world could be a genius like you."
Alexander: "Oh well thank you.  I agree."
Artie: "I love computers!"
Alexander:  "Me too!"
-Friends-
Artie: - 2 star celebrity status achieved- "Have you been having a good day?"
Alexander: "It's been a great day.  I just made a new friend."
Artie: "Yes and I applaud you for your hard work."
Alexander: "Thank you.."
Artie: "You're very smart, Alexander."
Alexander: "Thank you.  I think you are too because you're my friend."
Artie: "I like computers!"
Alexander: "So do I!"
-Rinse & Repeat for 2 hours until Best Friends-


Artie: - 3 star celebrity status achieved-  "Now that we're Best Friends, I was wondering if you would do me a favor."
Alexander: "Anything for my new best friend."
Artie: "I would really like it if you and your wife would move in with me, adopt an artistic child and help me achieve immortality for only myself.  Whaddya say?"
Alexander: "That sounds like an excellent idea."
Artie: "Splendid.  I promise to help you and your wife achieve your lifetime goals."
Alexander: "Great!  Come on Honey.  We're moving in with my fine new red friend here.  He's the one that brought in some of the new venues that we saw this morning around town."
Artie: "You guys don't have any hidden cars in your pockets right?"
Alexander: "Oh no.  We let the Celebrity limo service drive us wherever we need to go.  I do have a laptop and some books in my pocket though."
Artie: "Guess that will have to do.. C'mon buddy."



Alexander: "You know what this place needs.. Plants.  I think I'm going to start a garden."
Patricia: "I think that's an excellent idea, my dear."
Artie: "Me too.  After you finish planting fruits and veggies, you should call child services and adopt an artistic child to liven up our lives."
Patricia: "You should do it honey.  I'm only one campaign away from being the Leader of the Free World and I can't really afford any time off."
Alexander: "You're absolutely right my dear.  You need to work as hard as you can to get that next vote."



Later that night…


Meet Victim #3 - Buzz Cross: Loner, Artistic, Perfectionist.
Buzz: "Mommy, Daddy.. I'm home!"
Mr Bigglesworth: "What are we going to call him?"
Artie: "I named him Buzz, like the space guy."
Mr Bigglesworth: "They are called astronauts and I'm surprised you know the name of an actual astronaut."
Artie: "Well of course I do.  Who hasn't heard of Buzz Lightyear?"
Rica: -facepalm-


Artie: "Hey Buzz.. I got you a shiney new easel for coming to live with us."
Buzz: "Cool!  Thanks Uncle Artie.  Can I go take a class to learn how to paint?"
Artie: "Of course you can!"
Rica: "I can't believe you had them adopt a child to be your painter."
Artie: "Adopting a painter is the latest trend in dynasty founders.  Get with the times woman."
Rica: "Shameless.. Absolutely shameless."
Mr Bigglesworth: "I think you mean brilliant."

This probably sounds weird Rica but I love the relationship between you and Artie.

I see that Artie is a man with a plan and can't wait to see who the lucky Mrs Grim will be.

Thanks Rachel.  I feel like I'm to Artie what the Voice/You are to your Sims.    He's probably the one Sim I can't help but be attached to.   I use him in challenge files just because as well.     It's really too bad Genie's turned out like vampires with the long life thing.

Yay, Artie's back! He seems to be taking being stuck in Lunar Lakes better than I thought he would. Poor Mr. Bigglesworth though, that was just devious.

Your sarcasm between characters and yourself is fantastic. Great restart. :)

This is my first time reading about Artie -- I'll have to go back and look at the earlier ones. I love The Boss.

Patricia:  "Since we're such good friends now, do you want to move in with me?"
Cheyenne: "I think that's a great idea!"
Rica: "Is this the future Mrs. Grim?"
Patricia: "This is my new friend Cheyenne.  Cheyenne meet Rica.  You get used to her."
Cheyenne: "Hello Rica.."
Rica: "Hello Level 10 Fishing and Level 6 Photography.  I mean Cheyenne.  I'm really excited to meet you."
Cheyenne: "Ok.  So are you around all the time?"
Rica: "Yes.. Do you have any sculpting interest?"
Cheyenne: "If you get a sculpting station, I might wish to try it."
Rica: "It's yours!"


Rica: "How do you like that sculpting station?"
Cheyenne: "It's awesome.   Just making something from a block of clay is so much fun."
Rica: "I'm glad you like it but we really should get you out of that outfit.  What you say?"
Cheyenne: "I just need a few more moments to finish this."

Part of trying to get that next career level for Patricia is throwing some fundraising parties.  Her boss Mia James thought this would be a good time to go into labor calling the party to a stop early for her and Patrica.  Artie kept everyone else entertained though.

Rica: "ARTIE! We need to have a chat."
Artie: "What woman I'm trying to party here."
Rica: "I need to chat with you.  It's Day 3 and there is a small detail you should probably know about."
Artie: -grumbles and gets off the counter, stomps into the house- "Speak Woman!"
Rica: "Artie.. I want you to go spend time with Alexander."
Artie: "Is this because he's going to be the first to die?"
Rica: "No this is because it's been decided that your new supermax is going to be Logic and not athletic."
Artie: "WHAT?!"
Mr Bigglesworth: -hissing chuckle-
Rica: "Calm down and just go let Alexander tutor you.  If you get to level 5 you can tutor Buzz to give him good grades and he can stay home and paint while you work!"
Artie: "Woman… that's just… an absolutely genius scheme you've got there."
Rica: "You didn't honestly think you were the brains behind all of this did you?"
Mr Bigglesworth: -hissing chuckle, cough, hack, furball-


Alexander: "It's just logical for a woman to wear high heels so that it hurts more when she stomps on your heart."
Rica: "Umm.. new approach please before I unleash all the females left at this party upon thee."


Alexander: "I'm not entirely certain what areas we could find logic within your old career but I can tell you that I once knew a guy who went by the Chess name Reaper333 online. "
Artie: "That would be Ted.  He was always a big of an egghead."
Alexander: "Well in that case, I have some wonderful moves to show you so can you beat him."
Artie: "Excellent!"


Artie: "Ok what should I add next. "
Rica: "Something non explosive."
Artie: "You act like I haven't seen this thing in use before.  I know it can't kill me."
Rica: "But it can singe you. "
Artie: "Nonsense.. if it did that I would have noticed."


Artie: "That was glorious just glorious!" -evil laughter-
Rica: "See I told you!"
Mr Bigglesworth: "I think it's a great look for him. "
Rica: "At least his underwear is now his favorite color right?"

Ooh, logic? That's a tough one! Best of luck to Artie doing it starting as a young adult and all.

Good luck with supermaxing logic. In my Smith dynasty I didn't start working on superamxing logic until Kumquat was a young adult I was so naive back then it never occured to me to try working on the skill challenges early. It never occured to me to use the moodlet manager either I am surprised I managed to max any skills let alone supermax them.
My point is with a moodlet manager and motive mobile I think supermaxing logic will be hard but achievable and good idea about tutoring Buzz as Artie would not be able to tutor any heirs in logic as they need to concentrate on their own skill not logic.

Good luck with the new skill. I do have a question. Where did you get the all-black skinned girl? Is she a daughter of Grim?

I still have my Grim Reaper saved from when you used to be able to add him to your household.  So yeah she's him turned into a little girl in CAS.  The outside shots make her pitch black but inside she's sometimes more grayish.  Grim's natural eye color is blue so I changed it to red for her.  She is The Boss.  I imagine her voice in my head as that sing song creepy little girl voice.
