Round 1: Beaker 1

Round 1: Beaker 1
It Ain't Just a River in Egypt
Circe and Loki Beaker are a mysterious (and perhaps misunderstood) couple to say the least. Let's see how the Beakers are doing...
Me: Hey, guys. Oops, I didn't mean to interrupt an intimate moment.
Circe: It's ok. We were just fantasizing what it will be like when we have children.
Me: I didn't think having kids was a priority for you two.
Circe: Of course it is. Loki can't wait to be a father.
Me: Really? Loki never struck me as the nurturing type, what with the torturing Nervous Subject and all...
Circe: Loki would never hurt a child. He has a tender side.
Loki: Watch your back, Vidcund. I know how you feel about my wife. When I am a Criminal Mastermind, I will destroy you.
Me: Very tender.
Circe: And, he'll be suportive of his children's dreams.
Loki: Circe, why on SimEarth would you want to become a Business Tycoon? You're doing so well in the Medical track. Be practical, woman.
Me: Super supportive.
Nervous: How can you even contemplate having a child with that man? Circe, you're so brilliant, but you're dense when it comes to Loki. He's evil. This is no place to raise a child. Leave while you're still free.
Circe: Nervous, you don't know him like I do.
Me: That's for sure. It's a scary world where Nervous Subject is the more rational person in the conversation. Save your breath, Nervous. It's no coincidence her glasses are rose-colored.
Circe: Nervous, would you mind hanging out Downtown tonight? Loki and I would like to be alone.
Me: I see you're going through with this. I think I'll catch up with Nervous.
Cassandra: So, I hear you live in Strangetown with the little green Sims. Have you seen one? How long are their antennae?

Chloe: We are green. We don't have antennae. And, I haven't been called little since I was a child.
Me: Awkward!

Me: Well, Circe it looks like your intimate evening was a success. Oh, Will, help us all!
Even the game doesn't think Circe and Loki should have a baby. This is another glitched lot. Everytime Loki and Circe woohoo (whether through direct command or ACR) they get a cut scene. That should only happen the first time they woohoo. They must have woohooed five times and I never heard baby chimes. I finally gave up and used the SimBlender to get Circe pregnant. So unless this is a multiple birth, they will only be having one child. I'm hoping it is only one child and I hope that child marries someone from another neighborhood because I don't really care for the layout of this lot.
Circe and Nervous have three bolts of chemistry! ACR never kicked in with them, though. I'd like to think it's because Nervous has too much sense to mess with Loki's wife, especially since his friend Vidcund already has a crush on her. In reality, I think it's because Circe's autonomy is low because she's married. But, oh, what a storyline that could have been.
Nervous's LTW is to Marry off 6 Children. Eek! Can you imagine six little Nervouses running around? I would like to pair him off with Natasha Una. If any Sim was meant to be a Grilled Cheese sim, it's Nervous Subject! They have a good shot since Red Hair is one of his turn-ons.
On a personal note, my wedding is now two months away. I'm afraid the updates are going to be a bit sparse because I have to spend my evenings putting together invitations and favors and making room in my condo for my husband-to-be.
The Smith household is up next. Stay tuned...


  1. First, congrats on the upcoming wedding. :-)

    Second, awesome update! I don't think Loki & Circe should have children either, and yet, they are having them in my game too. Doubley so, because Loki was abducted by aliens. We'll see how it goes, huh?

  2. Congrats on the wedding! Enjoy these last two months of excitement leading up to the big day! It goes by so fast, and you're in for such a good time!

    I've never played the Strangetown families, so it's really neat to see what they're all about. Can't wait to see the baby!

  3. The sinister Loki and Circe - ha ha - I wonder how they'll be as parents!
    I'm glad that ACR didn't kick in for Nervous (yet)!

    Oooh- I love weddings! Congrats! -- I'll miss new posts though.

  4. Oh gosh, those two having kids? Now there's a scary thought...

    Congrats on the wedding!!

  5. I love the idea of these two having children. Haha, there's so many ways for that to go wrong.

    Hopefully Nervous books it before the kid is old enough to start experimenting.

    And good luck with your wedding. Sounds like you have a lot to do.

  6. Thank you all for your well wishes! I really appreciate it. I can't wait to see what Loki and Circe's baby is like either. I'm expecting a mean kid since Loki and Circe both have zero nice points.

    I hope to get the Smith update out over the weekend.

    Take care!

  7. *shudders @ at the thought of the Beaker baby*

    It sounds like maybe Nervous has a case of Stockholm Syndrome.

  8. Since I'm two months late here, I gues you are marrying tomorrow! Congratulations are in order, even though I'm sure you won't read this before the Big Day!

  9. @Petalbrook,

    Honestly, I don't know what to make of Nervous's "relationship" with Circe and Loki. We'll see what dynamic the baby adds to household.


    Yes, you were right. My wedding was on the 18th!
