Gretta was accepted into the Distinguished Fine Arts studies at Britechester University, but decided to take the first two semesters from home until her brother was ready to go to university too. The had after all been inseparable since he was a toddler, so it seemed like an easy decision. Also, she could do homework in her sleepwear, what is not to love?
(I may have been too hasty about the "no visible changes", she seems to pack on pounds more easily now that she is an adult. Not that anyone is complaining. At least not anyone who is not Gretta.)
She also does her term papers on the home computer. Students these days do that, and in fact even their doctorate thesis. Meanwhile their parents see it and think junior is just surfing on Facebook all day. Or so the rumor goes.
Meanshile, our newest teen has more extreme ambitions...
Down in the windowless basement, Amanda is hard at work at the robotics crafting station. She has put on a suitable attire for the occasion.
When she is not at school, she is working tirelessly. Well, almost tirelessly. Even Scully the skull seems a bit worried.
She gets a new upper-body exoskeleton with a cybernetic arm. (Don't worry, her original arm is unharmed somewhere in there.)
And after days and night of crafting, her dream is realized. (Seriously she went from like level 2 to 9.5 just making the parts that could not be bought for simoleons and assembling her cyber-arm and Servo.) Are we ready to add yet another member to the family though?
"Let there be lightning!"
The nuclear family begins with nuclear power!
"I will call him... Boyfriend 2.0!"
We did not see Mass around, but he is actually getting less addicted to his older sister and getting better along with Amanda. But the plan is still to send the two oldest off to campus next week.
