Fits Her Name
This update brought to you by the magical image uploading site of Imgur. Click on the images for a larger sized photo.
Gengis is looking pretty fit since Blaise's brutal training regime.
Speaking of Blaise, she made the local sports team yesterday! Let's take this time to...
Waste all that time and effort we spent on that to become FIREFIGHTERS!
Gengis doesn't work until very late today and none of his friends feel like putting up with him, so he's just going to stay home and invent some useless garbage for now.
Unlike making a sports team, you instantly become a firefighter inexplicably. Blaise walks home in her new uniform. The bottom half, at least.
To move up in Firefighting, you need to be Athletic (check) and Handy (not check).
We don't have any books for Blaise to read about how to fix things, nor the money to afford it. So there's only one alternative left.
Fiddle with all our electric stuff until it eventually breaks.
That dryer's the cheapest piece of a junk we can buy, it's bound to break eventually. Until then, let's draw some doodles.
Some tasty, delicious doodles.
Oh wait. Blaise is just hungry and can smell Gengis making lunch.
Alright Blaise. You look pretty proud of yourself; let's see what you've got.
We'll hang that on the wall of crappy paintings that we've got going here.
Hmm. I have to give you some credit, Gengis. You're pretty good at the "Mr. Mrs. Homemaker" thing. This spaghetti's pretty good.
Okay, nevermind. Blaise pukes it all out a few minutes later.
Well, let's head back to the firestation. Apparently our coworkers need us!
To do everything for them.
No wonder they were so quick to let her in, they needed some lackey to maintain the upkeep on all their firefighting junk.
Sheesh, Gengis would be better at this kind of thing than us. Too late for that now, though.
Well, that's all done with, so let's--
Okay, who wants to bother us now?You again?
What, yesterday's beating wasn't enough, you want to make this a daily thing?
For the last time, Blaise doesn't--
Don't look at me like that, go away!
...Stop staring at me.
Well, at least he left this time. Blaise takes this opportunity to play with those cool slidey-poles. A key feature of any respectable firestation.
HERE WE G--
Okay, let's try this again.
Via climbing up the pole directly.
Wait, that's it?
What else do they have to do around here?A trampoline?
That makes Blaise have sort of weird shading for some reason.
I guess there isn't a lot of fires in Twinbrook, so these guys have to find something
to do at the station. You know, except for actually repairing their own vital equipment.
But still, not a lot of actual fires happening around town...
SO LET'S MAKE OUR OWN
Just kidding. These guys have a firepit out here. It's pretty cozy.
Oh! Apparently because Blaise is so popular, the dance club has offered her money for dancing a few hours at the club in a competition with other celebrities!
Let's double our chances of winning and bring Gengis with us! I'm sure he's not doing anything important back home.
See? He's just set himself on fire again.
Okay Gengis, quit goofing off.
We don't have time for this, the competition starts soon.
But first, a touching up of Blaise's outfit.
Her current outfit is fine, so I'm making an alternative outfit. She'll switch between that and her current wear like how Gengis does with his clothes.
I tried nailing a 60's look to match her hairstyle. I think I nailed it perfectly.
Wait, why are you watering the plants? The competition starts in only a few minutes!
The two crawl to the competition in Blaise's Slug-a-Bug.
Alright, time to show them what we're made of.
All...uh...none of them?
Well...we won. Not like we were actually competing with anybody. These two dopes think the power of their love brought them through
, but whatever. Money's money, so let's continue renovating the interior of the house!
Welcome to the kitchen.
What do you think? Is it nauseating? Does it make you sick? Do you feel like vomiting?
If so then good! That's what I was going for.
It's the ugly design of the cushions and fabrics that bring it all together.
Anyways, Gengis tells Blaise that people have been spreading (completely true) rumors about Blaise's fight with her ex and such, so we're going to take a different approach than just suing anybody who does so much as give us the stink-eye.
Blame it on somebody else.
Rather than suing people, you can just pin the blame on another celebrity. It has a higher chance of working than suing, and an even higher chance if the celebrity in question is more popular.
We didn't pin it on a celebrity, though. Just an old friend, Ms. Man. Remember
In the meanwhile, Gengis is going to stay home and clean house.
Since Gengis has been so happy, I bought another Reward: changing his traits again. You do it as many times as you want, assuming you have enough points to afford it. I just changed a trait we haven't used a lot, "Born Salesman", with a new one, "Neat".
This'll make Gengis clean stuff faster and have to bathe less often. Which is important. Uh, I mean cleaning stuff faster. Although not having to bathe often is nice, but we're getting sidetracked here. Being able to clean stuff up is faster because Blaise is practically a human filth tornado and brings grime and garbage as a tell-tale insignia of wherever she's been.
Anyways, just another quiet day at work...
OH GOOD GOD
That thing is LOUD! It honestly startled me.
Oh wait, that means somebody's dying! Hoorah! We have stuff to do now!
Ready for a heart-felt story about a crack team of firefighters and their touching attempts to solve any challenge together using the power of teamwork and friendship?
No? Okay good, because firefighting is a solo job in Twinbrook.
There's a reason why I haven't shown you Blaise's coworkers. It's because they're boring and you don't really even need to acknowledge their existence. Sure, it may
have you get promoted faster, but goofing off at home is more fun than goofing off with some knuckleheads at the station that pin every job on you.
And I do mean everything.
They don't put out fires, they don't maintain the equipment. They don't even wipe their own butts. They expect you to do everything for them. You're less of a firefighter and more of a mother of six that happens to be good with a fire extinguisher.
Oh by the way OH GOD PEOPLE ARE BURNING TO DEATH, HURRY
DON'T WORRY EVERYBODY
WE'RE MODERATELY TRAINED FOR SITUATIONS LIKE THIS
Phew. Okay, that wasn't too hard.
You get paid based on efficiency. Namely, if everybody survives the fire and you can put it out within a very generous time limit. However, if you don't maintain the alarms, they won't tell you about emergencies immediately, and if you don't maintain your firetruck it'll take longer to reach the destination.
Don't worry ma'am, disaster is averted.
No need to thank us.
Especially when you're idea of "thanking" us is vomiting all over the place.
Well, let's head back to the station.
Oh hey there, Gengis! What are you doing here?
Of course, why did I even ask?
Because the firestation is a bit far from home, Gengis decided to expand our tunnel network to the firestation.
It's a sweet gesture, but I think he really just wanted an excuse to use that Digger more.
Anyways, as the day winds down, Gengis heads for his own job--the daily ghostbust.
Okay, this has got to be a prank.
As soon as we reach the destination, the ghost we're supposed to be busting whips out a cell phone
and snaps a picture of Gengis
Gengis is actually so famous for his ghost busting even ghosts idolize him.
Well, since you are our biggest fan,
Here's a gift, courtesy of the man himself!
Oh and by the way, this guy died via electricity when he was alive. For some reason, electric ghosts still pulsate with electricity even when the game is paused. I threw together a quick gif to show you what I mean.
Well, that was a fun day. We got some work done, and still managed to come home in time for dinner. The two eat their last meal for the day in their work uniforms and call it a night.
If you have any suggestions on how Gengis or Blaise should spend tomorrow, additions or changes in their clothing or house, or anything else just post them in this thread.
