The Story of Bob Bobson Updated 8/12

Prologue

This... is the story of a Sim. A Sim named Bob Bobson. A Sim who will someday become a master chef. But for now, he is just plain Bob Bobson. Allow me to introduce you to him.

04-28-15_8-04_PM-3.png

This is Bob Bobson.

"HI..."

Yes. Hello Bob. Now as I was saying, This is Bob Bobson, the hero of our story. As you can see, he is a bit clumsy, a wee bit squeamish, and a perfectionist---

"Well, it's true that I'm a bit of a perfectionist, but you can't possibly say that I'm clumsy -whoops- ..."

If you say so, Bob. Now if you'll allow us to continue...?

"Yeah."

Ok then. He aspires to become a master chef someday, and prepare dishes for celebrities, and possibly have his own cooking show someday.

"Ok, can you hurry it up? I wanna get to the part where I'm a master chef, and super rich and famous!"

Bob, you do realize that it'll take several game weeks for you to get to that point, and that I cannot just simply PUT you in as a master chef, and that you have to WORK for it, right?"

"Well, um, can't we just skip to that part?"

'Fraid not, sorry. You gotta actually work, and do your cooking, and so on.

"DS, you're being very mean to me. You should just give me a 'motherlode'."

Bob, that takes all the fun out of the game.

"But at least I'll have money, right?"

While you would have money, I would be completely bored with the game, and wouldn't play you, so you'd kind of be stuck.

"Oh."

Yes. Now can I continue again?

"Ok."

Thank you.

The very same day I created Bob Bobson, I moved him into the neighborhood of Oasis Springs---

"IN THAT SWEATER?"

Bob, you are a Sim, and as of yet, there are no seasons. You will be fine.

"Fiiiiine..."

As I was saying I moved Bob into Oasis Springs, and here he is, posing in front of his mailbox.

04-28-15_8-09_PM.png

"Tahdah...."

Yes Bob, very nice. Also, it appears that Bob is a bit of a show off.

"BUT WAIT, WHERE'S MY HOUSE?!"

Bob, your house isn't in the picture. It's to the left, off camera. And anyway, you're going to be getting a bigger house someday, so relax.

"How 'bout that motherlode, so I can have it NOW?"

Nice try. Not happening.

"Hey, hey DS."

What.

"I found something."

What did you find?

"My thoughts of you not giving me a motherlode and me having to be in the kitchen 24/7---"

04-28-15_8-26_PM.png

Bob, honestly. You're not going to be in the kitchen 24/7. You're gonna do other stuff too.

"Really."

Yep, but that's enough for tonight, Bob. You've gotta save something for the next part.

"Are you suuuure?"

Yes Bob.


~~~~~

AN: I have had this up for a few months on another site, and I decided to share this with you, at least the first chapter. It's kind of told in the style of @pammiechick 's ISBI, but all (playable) characters thoughts are mentioned.

Any similarities to real life events or persons is strictly coincidental.

Also just figured out how to post pictures finally lol

DS is my nickname on another site.

    Chapter (both)1/2*

    After I moved in Bob Bobson, and he made a couple things-

    "Tadah..."

    Yes, Bob, you did very well. After he made a couple things of food, I decided it would be even more fun if Bob had a friend.

    "WAIT WHAT?! Y-Y-YOU MADE A NEW SIM? IT'S NOT JUST GOING TO BE ABOUT ME ANYMORE?!"

    Bob, relax. I'm sure you'll get along great. I mean, I made him to be your new best friend, after all.

    "-suspiciously- We'll see..."

    Bob, honestly.

    Anyway, I made a new Sim named Eric Ericson. Allow me to introduce him.

    05-01-15_10-48_PM.png

    This is Eric Ericson. He is somewhat different from Bob, he is outgoing, a bit lazy, and really cheerful, and he wants to catch lots of fish.

    "Hello guys!"

    Hi Eric! This is Bob.

    "HMMPH!"

    Bob....

    "-grumbles- hi."

    Bob please try to be nice. He's going to be your new best friend, really!

    "Fiiiine...."

    So after moving him in, I observed that Eric also enjoys reading.
    05-01-15_10-59_PM.png


    "-sputtering loudly- I-I-I-I-is that MY BOOK?! Eric, do you often move into other Sims' houses and start reading their books? Is this a habitual thing with you?"

    Bob... relax, you were busy cooking anyway.

    "And besides, I like reading when I'm not fishing..."

    Thank you Eric.

    "HMMPH"

    So then a few minutes later, I start them on an interesting conversation.
    05-01-15_11-08_PM.png


    "Ok Eric, I wanna get a few things straight with you. FIRST, this is MY house. SECOND, YOU HAVE HORRIBLE TASTE IN CLOTHES -whilst ignoring his own clothing taste-, and THIRD, YOU MADE MY PLATES ALL SPARKLY >:I"

    Bob, are you done.

    "Yes."

    Thank you. After this interesting tirade on part of Bob, they watch tv together, and try to get along for the rest of the day.

    "WAIT A MINUTE, AREN'T YOU GONNA SHOW MORE PICTURES?"


    *It is 1 and 2 because this is actually the second chapter, and the prologue is serves as both.

    Chapter 3

    After settling their differences for the night, Bob and Eric had a nice rest. The next morning, they were ready to try again.

    05-08-15_9-20_PM.png

    "Hey Eric, guess what!"

    "What?"

    "I could really go for a cupcake this morning..."

    "-yawns- You know, I could go for a nap this morning..."

    "Eric, we just got up!"

    So a few minutes later at breakfast...

    05-08-15_9-28_PM.png

    "...I mean, my phone is so superior, I can't even put it into words. It's simply the better phone. I have THE better phone."

    "Uh huh, ok then. I still want that nap though, and maybe we should go fishing later."

    05-08-15_9-30_PM.png

    "F-f-f-fishing? You know I hate worms..."

    "Come on, it'll be fun!"

    "But I have work, I'm gonna be a famous chef someday, you know!"

    So after they clean stuff up, and talk awhile longer, Bob discovers he has a couple hours before work.

    "Hm... I'm so bored..."

    How about exploring?

    "Yeah! Unless, it happens to be a hollow log... it's not a hollow log, is it?"

    No, what I have in mind is a rock.

    "OK!"

    So after digging up a time capsule, and a gem, Bob decides he's tired.

    05-08-15_9-35_PM-2.png

    "At least that wasn't dirty or anything... But I could really go for that cupcake now..."

    So then it is time for Bob to go to work.

    "Wait wha- I'M NOT DONE HOGGING THE CAMERA YET..."

    Bob, I've got to work on the next part so you can get home from work, and do fun stuff. Like make more food and increase your cooking skill.

    "But... What about my cooking show?"

    "DS? Hello? DS~? DS! DS?"

    Sneak peek but it's not really a sneak peek anymore

    "HEY DS...."

    Yes Bob?

    "ERIC AND I HAVE A REALLY GOOD IDEA!"

    Oh? And what might that be?

    "You need to get us something."

    I see. Isn't that what you say just about every time I come onto this thread?

    "NO! Well, yes maybe, but that's not important right now."

    Mm hmm.

    "You need to get me and Eric a chocolate fountain!"

    And what do you propose to do with this chocolate fountain?

    "Eat chocolate~"

    Chapter 4


    After work that evening, Bob returned home exhausted.

    "I AM EXHAUSTED. CAN I HAVE THAT MOTHERLODE YET?"

    No, but to make up for it, I got you a chocolate fountain.

    "Yay!"

    So a few minutes later...

    05-26-15_6-45_PM-2.png

    05-26-15_6-46_PM.png

    "Whoops! Do you think anyone noticed that I dropped my strawberry in the chocolate?"

    Bob, it's 2 AM, nobody else is up, I'm sure you're fine.

    "You sure? You never can tell..."

    Yes. I'm sure.

    So a few hours later, Eric wakes up and decides to go fishing.

    05-26-15_6-54_PM.png

    "This is MY fishing rod, and I'm going to catch SO MANY FISH! muahahaha...."

    Uh, Eric? That seems more like Bob than you.

    "Oh yeah. Well he is supposed to be my best friend you know."

    True...

    So then he caught something and then I decided to have him get the other collectibles around.

    05-26-15_6-58_PM.png

    "Bob is going to be so proud that I got a frog..."

    Ok, well, we'll see how that works out...

    So after catching a frog and collecting some rocks, he returns to fishing.

    05-26-15_7-05_PM.png

    "Man, I wish I had a portable recliner to go fishing with..."

    So later that day, Bob discovered that it was one of his days off, and spent the day doing stuff.

    05-26-15_7-15_PM.png

    "Hey Eric, I heard aliens finally showed up for the first time in another one of DS's games the other day. Like that'd ever happen..."

    Despite Bob's doubts, it did actually happen and I have that game saved at that point.

    Chapter 5

    After Bob continued to be skeptical of the aliens in another of my games, Bob and Eric went to sleep and a day or two later...

    06-10-15_6-30_PM-2.png

    "Yay, I dug up a rock without getting dirty! Success! Also, the next step in my aspiration is... to host a dinner party, and achieve a silver rating on it... HMM..."

    So Bob looked at his relationship panel, and realized that the only person that he knew was Eric.

    "DS, having me know only Eric isn't doing a lot towards the whole super rich and famous thing that I'm trying to get going..."

    Bob, if you'd let me finish, I'd say that you met more people.

    "Oh really..."

    Yes Bob.

    As I was saying, in order to remedy that, I had Bob introduce himself to some NPCs (Non-Playable Characters).

    06-10-15_6-49_PM.png

    "Hi, my name is Bob! And I've got a story to tell you. Oh wait, you want to tell me your name-- Well that's not important right now, but let me tell you about the (Non-existent) time I saw a bear!"

    06-10-15_6-49_PM-2.png

    "I mean, it was THIS BIG, but I wasn't scared. At all."

    If Eric were standing there listening (he's off fishing at the moment), he'd have something to say about that I'm sure...

    "Yeah, I would. Bob, I think you're stretching it a bit, especially considering how DS hasn't taken us camping yet."

    Yes, perhaps someday soon I'll take you camping...

    "That'd be great! I wanna see what kind of fish there are in Granite Falls!"

    Well perhaps that'll be in the next part.

    "Yay!"

    06-10-15_6-49_PM-3.png

    "...And then, it just ran away. It was probably scared of how awesome I am."

    Ok, Bob, we'll see if you like those sim-bears when I send you camping.

    "You're. Not. Helping."

    I'm sorry Bob, but you'll have to do your showing off later, because I'm trying to tell a story here.

    "Fine..."

    So Bob continued showing off for NPC/random-sim-that-the-game-randomly-generates-for-each-game Ericka Seay, then went to work. Eric continued fishing and collecting gems and time-capsules, and later that night, I had him talk to the last walk-by of the day.

    06-10-15_7-00_PM-2.png

    Needless to say, it didn't go well...

    "I don't like you..."

    04-30-15_7-33_PM.png

    "myeeeghg"

    05-01-15_11-12_PM.png

    "I am sooooo good at this, and my cooking skill isn't even halfway maxxed yet..."

    05-26-15_10-42_AM.png

    "My strawberry... in chocolate... Delicious."

    05-26-15_6-43_PM.png

    "I hate watching sports..."

    06-10-15_1-07_PM.png

    "Remember Eric, don't look at the sun. It's very bright!"

    06-10-15_7-00_PM-2.png

    "I don't like you..."

    05-26-15_7-15_PM.png

    "Like that'd ever happen..."

    06-10-15_6-30_PM-2.png

    "Success!"

    05-26-15_6-46_PM.png

    "Whoops..."

    05-08-15_9-28_PM.png

    "I mean, my phone is so superior, I can't even put it into words. It's simply the better phone, I have THE better phone..."

    "Uh huh."

    Chapter 6

    First, an extra.

    05-08-15_9-33_PM.png

    Bob... Are you OK?

    "Never been better! :D"

    OK then...

    Part 6, The Dinner Party

    So after the preparations and a dinner party I didn't take pictures of, Bob hosts the party.

    06-21-15_9-28_PM.png

    "DS, stahp!"

    Bob, you forget I'm the one telling the story.

    "So?"

    Bob...

    "Fiiiine...."

    So a couple minutes later, we go over to Eric.

    06-21-15_9-31_PM.png

    "Sooo.... Tired..."

    Eric, I know, but you have to stay awake for your party. You are a guest, you know.

    "Oh yeah."

    06-21-15_9-33_PM-2.png

    "Hey Bob! According to that little box in the upper left corner, we're winning at this party thing!"

    "Alright!"

    Just who they're competing with, I'd like to know...

    06-21-15_9-35_PM.png

    "Psst Bob! Money!"

    "Uh huh, sure thing..."

    So the next morning Bob decides it's a good idea to karate chop his breakfast.

    07-06-15_4-11_PM.png

    Bob, that's not a good idea...

    "Hiiiiya!"

    "Bob no!"

    Bob...

    "Tahdah...."

    "Oh DS~"

    Yes Bob?

    "Are you done with the next part YET?"

    Yes, I am.

    "Ya- Wait, I'm in it right?"

    "Yes, why else would I be here?"

    "Good point. And Eric too?"

    Yes...

    "And Erica? I'm not done showing off yet."

    I can't promise that.

    "Do we have ice cream yet?"

    No, Bob, unfortunately not.

    Part 7

    Bob's karate chopping of his food caused a bit of an issue with the house*, making it quite messy. As a result, they were forced to move.

    09-05-15_9-58_AM.png

    "Eric, is this the same house?"

    "I think so, wonder why."

    Once inside, Bob resigns himself to the current lack of 'his' chocolate fountain.

    09-05-15_10-05_AM.png

    "The lack of chocolate fountain must be a sacrifice I'm not quite willing to make..."

    09-05-15_10-06_AM.png

    "At least my sink stopped glitching..."

    But while Bob is regretting the lack of his fountain, where's Eric in all this? As when he first arrived, he went straight to the bookshelf.

    09-05-15_10-25_AM.png

    "This guy is really mad at this giant squid..."

    So they settle in for now, though Bob was last seen eyeing the fridge suspiciously.

    "I'm still not happy about this lack of a chocolate fountain >:(

    Chapter 8

    03-26-16_8-35-38_PM.png

    "Eric, that is IT!"

    "What's it?"

    "This house is way too small to be able to pursue my dreams AND has no room for my ice cream machine."

    "Ok? We need to talk though."

    03-26-16_8-40-05_PM.png

    "Ok, so---"

    "Not really in the mood right now Eric. I'm so uncomfortable, DS is really slacking off."

    03-26-16_8-43-32_PM.png

    "I'm so excited~"

    Does this have anything to do with your surprise that I'm getting you?

    "DS shush!"

    03-26-16_8-44-29_PM.png

    Bob, shall I tell you what it is?

    "NO >:("

    "Can I (talek is not a word DS) talk NOW?"

    03-26-16_8-42-52_PM.png

    "Fast food is soooooo good..."

    "No it's NOT I DISAGREE!"

    Sorry Bob, I'm going to have to side with Eric on this one.

    "HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?!"

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    03-26-16_8-48-19_PM.png

    "Wow... This place is great! I want a hUUUUUUGGGEEEE mansion RIGHT AWAY! GET TO WORK DS!"

    Yes. Your royal Bobness.

    "Oooh nice title, but what about Emper-"

    No.

    03-26-16_8-48-33_PM.png

    "Ooo this is a nice place!"

    Thank you Eric! Well Bob, here is your new home.

    "COOL. HOW MUCH STUFF DO WE---"

    03-26-16_8-58-59_PM.png

    "have..."

    "..."

    YOU Bob will have to earn Monies and work hard to achieve your dreams. Yours is on the right, Eric lives on the left.

    "Speaking of which, where's that motherlode from way back when?"

    Still not giving it to you sorry.

    "At least you remembered the ice cream."

    Look again Bob, I also gave you a Popcorn maker AND~...

    "MY CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN YAY :D"


    ~~~~~~~~~

    Extra:

    03-26-16_9-06-28_PM.png

    "Please don't mention this to anyone, but I don't feel so squeamish anymore, and it's really weird."

    ~~~~~~

    Note: I actually may have put these pictures in the wrong order early on but oh well. Also Eric will have to share his popcorn and ice cream with SOMEBODY in a snowman shirt.
