A Novel Idea Ch. 1.3


Photobucket



Previously, Jane turned into a not-so-nice child, Elizabeth turned into a toddler, and the twins Darcy and Georgiana were born. Trista spent the majority of their pregnancy passed out on the nursery floor, and Author continued to be made of win on the promotion front.


Photobucket

With the extra money that Author was making with his promotions, I put everything into his inventory and tore their first house down. Renovation time!

Photobucket

The girls' room.

Photobucket

The nursery.

Photobucket

Author and Trista's bedroom. Since they had grass for flooring for the longest time in their first house, I gave them green carpeting. They seem to like it. Lizzie tends to stalk her daddy, hoping that he'll pay some attention to her. Foreshadowing: Will all the "pay attention to me" Jane was doing early on backfire on the firstborn?

Photobucket

While the house was being built, I sent everyone outside. Jane talked her mom into playing catch with her.

Photobucket

Jane's one nice point rears it's ugly head yet again.

Jane: Catch this, Mom! *hurls ball at head*

Photobucket

Trista: I saw what you did there, young lady.

Photobucket


Photobucket

All was forgiven after Jane kicked scholastic butt at school.

Photobucket

Me: Whatcha doin', Sweetie?
Lizzie: Colorin'. *scribbles*
*Jane does homework in the background*

Photobucket

Lizzie: I wike da blue ones better. *chews*
*Jane continues to do homework in the background*

Photobucket

*sniff* They grow up so fast. This was supposed to be Lizzie's birthday transistion shot, but Jane ran in the middle of it and wanted to show off. Granted, her headstand was perfect, but there is a time and place for everything.

Jane: Who cares about stupid birthdays? LOOK AT ME!!
Lizzie: Yay! Go sis!

Lizzie, you're way too nice. Not to be outdone, it was the twins' turn to age up.

Photobucket

First Darcy.

Photobucket

Then Georgiana. Author doesn't look too thrilled with their haircuts.

Photobucket

Photobucket

So I Trista gave them makeovers.

Photobucket

Jane: Daddy? With all these kids around now, I'm still your little princess, right? Right? *worries*

Photobucket

Shot of the Challenger of the Status Quo! Lizzie turned out cute.

Photobucket

And Darcy turned out classy. And now for something completely different: a toddler with a tape recorder up his nose. [/John Cleese voice]

Photobucket

Fail!Muffin: 1
Gen. Two: 1

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Potty Training the toddlers = practicing Zombie faces?

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

[/Lizzie spam] Guess who got an A+ her first day of school?

Photobucket

If you guessed the same child that drops everything to welcome her dad home after work, then you get a cookie.

Photobucket

Jane: I know you're helping Lizardbreath with her homework, but stop! Help me instead!
Author: Why don't I help you after I help your sister? And stop calling her Lizardbreath.
Lizzie: *sticks tongue out when Author's not looking*

Photobucket

Jane: Daddy? *worries some more*

Jane, I'd feel bad for you, but you've spent most of the afternoon being mean to your little sister.

Photobucket

See? Even the nanny knows it. I forget her name, but we'll call her Good Nanny #1. She feeds the kids, cleans the house, and recycles the paper after she's finished reading it. Where were you when Jane was a baby?

Photobucket

All the stress is giving Jane nightmares.

Jane: Zzzz...must..kill...competition...zzzzzz....

Photobucket

Lizzie has her share of bad dreams too.

Lizzie: No, Jane....don't blow up the world...zzzzz....

It seems that world domination is a no go, if Lizzie has anything to say about it.

Photobucket

Time for the twins to grow up!

Photobucket

Darcy: Yay, I'm a real boy!
Georgiana: *skills in the den*

Photobucket

Georgiana: Woo! I can reach the computer now!

Photobucket

In an attempt to get along better with her sister, Jane decides to give group art therapy a try.

Jane: Whatcha drawing?
Lizzie: Sumo wrestlers.
Jane: *looks at her drawing, then at Lizzie's*
Lizzie: What are you drawing? It looks like a duck. I like ducks.
Jane: Ninja assassin ducks who kill sumo wrestlers.
Lizzie: ... I don't think I like ducks any more.
Jane: *relationship plus*

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Final score:

Fail!Muffin: 3
Gen. Two: 2

After the culinary defeat, none of the kids touched the Easy Bake Oven again.

Photobucket

I've never seen a sim do this before. Is this a knowledge sim only sort of interaction?

Photobucket

Best. Daddy. EVER. Seriously, he wins the Dad of the Year award, IMO.

Author: Don't worry, you'll always be my little princess.

Photobucket

Author: Honey, the kids are all asleep. You wanna...
Trista: *grabs*

Woman of few words, that Trista is.

Photobucket

Awww. They haven't had this much alone time since before Jane.

Photobucket

My first tub pirate! He made a beeline to the bathroom as soon as he hopped off the bus.

Photobucket

Jane: Woah, everything suddenly got a lot taller!
Me: That's because you turned into a teen, dearest.
Jane: I have boobs! Yes!

Photobucket

Jane likes hard working creative people, but doesn't particularly care for redheads. Her lifetime want is to be the head of the SCIA.

Me: What, no evil overlord?
Jane: I'm using the SCIA as a coverup. You know, take the establishment down from the inside, that way when I am an evil overlord, I'll have all the info that I'll ever need and I'll also have a pre-built HQ.
Me: That's my girl.

Photobucket

Jane: What do you mean, I'm going to need money if I want to take over the world?
Me: Well, I guess that means you'd better get cracking on finding a job.

Photobucket

Job hunting does not mean gossiping with your dad about the stray dog that always pees on the mailbox, hon.

Photobucket

Darcy: Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. You wouldn't let go, would you?

Photobucket

Jane: You never know. I just might.
Darcy: What?!

Photobucket

Jane: Matchmaker, will you find me someone to rule the world at my side and have evil little babies with?
Matchmaker: Only if you're not as cheap as your father was.
Jane: What will $1,000 get me?

Photobucket

Seems like it will get you someone missing a top lip. They spent the date hanging out on the front lawn. Jane didn't try anything, mostly because he was way too nice for her tastes.

Photobucket

She didn't like the guy she brought home from school either.

Jane: You want me to what? *gives stink eye*
Boy from school: *quickly goes home*

Photobucket

Maybe there'll be more boys in a different school. Hopefully private schools are co-ed.

Photobucket

Success! Trista burnt the lobster, but seeing how she used to be a celebrity chef, maybe the Headmaster thought that it was a new up-and-coming cooking technique Trista had just invented. Either way, they wouldn't have gotten in if it hadn't been for Author's smooth schmoozing skills, proving once again that Author is a kickass founder.

Photobucket

And Jane proves that she's still a meanie.

Jane: Booo! You suck, little brother!
Darcy: *falls flat on face*

Photobucket

Ever since Jane became a teen, this guy has been stalking their house. We may let him into this legacy somewhere down the line.

Photobucket

Go old school, Trista!

Photobucket

Yes!

Photobucket

Working on Author's founder portrait.

Photobucket

Like we didn't already know that Jane was a drama queen.

Photobucket

Or an overachiever. At least we have one more scholarship to use in college!

Photobucket

Lizzie's birthday! Note Jane in the back waving for everyone to pay attention to her.

Photobucket

Elizabeth likes fit men with lots of facial hair, but she doesn't like the ones that happen to be lazy bums. She dreams of becoming the law that'll drop the hammer of justice onto her sister's evil plans.

Photobucket

The matchmaker gave her Tybalt Capp, who thinks she's dreamy.

Photobucket

So dreamy, that he gives Lizzie her first kiss.

Photobucket

Lifetime Want = Permaplatinum? Check. And this is the only time that Trista doesn't do her "Yay, I'm home" dance.

Photobucket

She does celebrate with a bag of chips though.

Photobucket

Me: A limo? Isn't that a little showy for a criminal mastermind?
Trista: No way! This is my secret identity. I've been telling the police that I'm a movie star dressed as a supervillian in order to get into character for a series franchise.
Me: And it works?
Trista: As long as the movie buisness keeps on making comic book movies, I'm golden.

Photobucket

Hey! I said you'd get into this legacy somewhere down the road, not with Lizzie!

Author: Ho hum. Don't mind me, older man trying to talk my perfect daughter into running away to Vegas with you. I'll just sit here. You won't even know I'm around!
Lizzie: Daaaad!
Author: Who was that nice boy you're dating? You know, the one that likes to wear face masks?
Lizzie: Ohmigawd, you're so embarrassing! *runs off*
Stalker!Dude: So, I'll be, um, going now.
Author: Yeah. Thought so.

Oh Author, you're such a protective woobie.

Photobucket

Like his wife, Author celebrates big milestones on the inside. Lifetime Want accomplished!

Photobucket

Just in time for the twins' birthday! That's Lizzie in the suit. Like her sister, she became an overachiever as well.

Photobucket

Darcy loves charismatic, athletic ladies, but is freaked the hell out by zombies. He loves the ladies so much that all he wants to do in life is to get to know a whole bunch. He figures fifty first dates should be enough to make him happy.

Photobucket

Georgiana loves blondes and redheads, but like her brother, is somewhat scared of the supernatural. While zombies do nothing for Darcy, vampires make Georgiana run for the hills. She didn't get much screen time during her childhood, but she wants to prove that she's an adventurer at heart by becoming a space pirate.

Photobucket

Hee. Tub pirates can be any age. Unfortunately, neither twin got to have much of a teenage experience, because I sent the four of them off to college as soon as they finished aging up. Author is going to be an elder in two more days, so I figured I'd give him grandbabies before he kicks the bucket.

Next Update: Generation Two, the College Edition.

Thanks. You have to wonder if Elizabeth sleeps with one eye open or not, seeing that she's sharing her room with Jane.

Yeah, this legacy is still amazing.

Gotta say Jane is my favorite, if only because everyone loves the family psycho.

Thank you! The unstable members of the family are what makes family trees interesting. You get the "And this is your great-aunt So and So. Remember? She's the one that set fire to the front hedges and danced around them naked that one time."

"Oh, that's right. I remember her."
