A Novel Idea Ch. 3.0



Photobucket



When we last checked up on the main house, elders had retired, the Gen 3 kids won the muffin battle against their Easy Bake Oven, children grew into teens, and Jane's wish of world domination was granted.

And now for the College Edition.

Photobucket

Liant: Daaad, not in front of the dorm! Cute guys might see!
Juan: I'm gonna miss you, sweetie! *clings*

Photobucket

The hair will have to go, but the shirt will stay in honor to your future Rock God status.

Photobucket

Her boyfriend did a little bit better.

Jessie: I'm too cool to notice my hair in my eyes. *struts*

Photobucket

Me:Smaug, my love, you grew up into a sweater. You're going to school in the desert.
Smaug: But I like this sweater. Grandma gave it to me.

Photobucket

Tin is overdressed for his first day on campus. We'll add him to the list of people that need to go get new clothes.

Photobucket

Tin definitely inherited Juan's nose. We shall call him The Nose Jr.

I sent everyone to the campus shop for new duds. Here's what they came out with:

Photobucket

Smaug.

Photobucket

Liant, with a nod to her Tolkien roots.

Photobucket

Beru.

Photobucket

Jessie just got a new hairstyle. Beru approves and proves that like her daddy, she has a thing for butts.

Photobucket

When I saw them coming back from the shop, for some reason I thought about this clip. Also a shot of Tin's makeover, since I couldn't get a good one at the lot they had been on.

By the time they got back, all of their energy levels were either in the red or right on the verge of going red. So after they claimed their rooms, this happened:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Instead of going to sleep in the room that he was already in, Jessie waved his arms in the air to complain about how tired he was and then made a beeline for the empty spot in Beru's bed. I checked, and they have three bolts, so no wonder.

Photobucket

As soon as they got up the next morning, they started to flirt all on their own.

Jessie: So, what do you think?
Beru: *heartfarts*

Photobucket

Jessie: Hey, congrats on falling in love! *thumbs up*

Photobucket

This could be a problem later on.

Liant: OMG, Jessie is HOT! *heartfarts*
Beru: I hope you're not thinking about what I think you're thinking about. *goes into territorial mode*
Jessie: I can't believe how much I love Beru! *is oblivious*

Photobucket

Tin had a "get fit" want, so we shipped him off to the gym. Tin, that's not how you impress girls.

Photobucket

Especially when someone like this is walking the treadmill a few machines down. She left before we could get her number, but Tin was a walking cloud of stink afterward, so it's probably a good thing that we missed her.

Photobucket

The resident dormie Noses swarm Liant during lunch.

Dormie #1: So, what about this drought we're having? It's freaking hot! *sweats*

Photobucket

Dormie #1: I could really go for something cold right now! Know any good domestic beers?

Photobucket

Slow dancing in the dining hall = best date ever.

Photobucket

Having your sister, who happens to have a crush on your boyfriend, try to cut in on the dancing time while said boyfriend cops a feel: not such a great time. And we see the beginnings of Stalker!Liant start to emerge.

Photobucket

Exhibit A. Note Liant in the background, probably looking up ways to make Jessie fall in love with her instead of Beru.

Liant: Actually, I'm just sitting here watching them make out. Isn't Jessie a great kisser?
Me: Getting creepy, Liant.
Liant: *sighs* I wish that was me.

Photobucket

Exhibit B.

Jessie: Hey, Liant? Could you move a bit? Battle of the Bands is on and I want to learn some cool new drum solo moves for the band Beru and I are gonna start.
Liant: He talked to me! *stares*

Photobucket

Exhibit C. The stalking continues into Winter. As part of a three bolt relationship, Jessie has also taken to stalking Beru wherever she is.

Jessie: She's just really cute when she's cramming for finals.
Liant: *pretends to write term paper, but is really just staring at the back of Jessie's head*

Photobucket

And finally, Exhibit D. The creepiness has officially come to a head when she sleeps on Jessie's side of Beru's bed while both Jessie and Beru are in class.

Liant: The pillow still smells like his hair!

Photobucket

Meanwhile, the boys meet a walk-by. This could spell trouble for them as well.

Photobucket

Fortunately, they have a sophisticated, grown up way of deciding on which one of them gets to hit on her.

Photobucket

Tin: Woo! On with the flirting!
Smaug: But I'm a romance sim! I should be the one flirting! Best out of three?

Photobucket

Red likes Tin! Guess she believes in the whole nose size determining penis size theory as well.

Photobucket

Jessie: But it's not a theory! It's true! I'm hung like a bullet train!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket


And the dormie is quite impressed. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on if Dormie wanted to bring down the Wrath of Beru by flirting with her boyfriend or not) Purple Shirt Dormie started to follow both Tin and Smaug around, heartfarting every five seconds or so. Neither of the Novel boys were interested.

Photobucket

Smaug: I don't know what you heard from Jessie, but it's not true!
Tin: *snort* Liar.
Smaug: Shut up, Tin. You want her to leave us alone, right?
Tin: Oh, right. *to Dormie* Yeah, it's acutally the opposite! Our nose size is in direct opposite porportion to penis size!
Smaug: Well, I wouldn't say that...
Tin: Hey, you were the one that wanted her to leave us alone.

Photobucket

Smaug: Okay, fine. I was trying to be nice. I know all about the little crush you have on me and while I'm flattered, you're not my type. No hard feelings though.
Underwear Dormie: How about me, Big Boy? Am I your type? *leers*

Photobucket

We take a break in the drama up front. Liant is at class, so these two can relax without wondering where their resident stalker is at.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Beru: My precious... *strokes Jessie's hair*

Photobucket

Smaug's quest to get a redhead of his own isn't doing too well.

Photobucket

Tin, your two nice points are showing.

Photobucket

Tin: Yeah! And you'll get more of the same if you try to insult me again!
Dormie #2: *cries*

Photobucket

This is what happens when you get a sim with two nice points to make a snowman with another sim that only has one nice point.

Beru: We shall call him the Anti-Frosty.
Tin: I was hoping that he'd come to life and wreck havoc a la that Calvin and Hobbes comic strip.

Photobucket

Beru: We are The Wyld Stallyns!
Me: That name's already been taken.
Jessie: How about The Flea Dragons?
Me: I dunno.
Beru: Charged Ides? Frisk Initiative? Buzz Hullabaloo? Oh! What about the Gambol Blitzkriegs?
Me: Where did the two of you come up with those names?
Jessie: Online random band name generator. We're kind of partial to Hubbub Revolutionists.
Me: That works.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Beru: Thank you! We'll be here all night! [/Hubbub Revolutionists spam]

Photobucket

Liant: Argh! I love him, but I can't have him! What do I dooooo?
Jessie: Hey, I'm right behind you, you know.

Photobucket

Liant: *has a mental breakdown*

Photobucket

Her answer: find a witch and learn the ways of magic! If she can't win Jessie over on her own, she'll whip up a spell to make him love her!

Photobucket

With that being said, did you think that I'd actually let her be a good witch? Come to the dark side! They have cookies!

Photobucket

Liant: OOoh, shiny!

Photobucket

Liant: Evil! Muahahaha!

Oh Liant. Your mother would be so proud.

Photobucket

Brooms beat public transportation any day.

Photobucket

While on the same lot, this lady walked by. We'll put her in the "Possible girlfriend for Smaug" list.

Photobucket

A little bit of studying (while ignoring college classes) later and Liant turns a vivid shade of green.

Photobucket

Tin: Snow?

Photobucket

Tin: Damn snow.

I agree! You're in the desert!

Photobucket

Really, I don't think Jessie knows that he even has a dorm room. The only time he's come close to it was at the very beginning to claim his spot.

Photobucket

Any time that I see him crying in a corner, it's because he provoked Tin and couldn't take it when someone stood up to his bullying.

Photobucket

Cafeteria Lady: You want me to make what now?! Grilled cheese is stupid!
Tin: *Seethes*

He makes a lot of his own grilled cheese sandwiches, much to Lunch Lady's annoyance. Still trying to get to that 200 sandwich mark!

Photobucket

Liant: If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
Tin: A good cast iron skillet, a stove, and a fridge that had a never ending supply of grilled cheese sandwich ingredients.

Photobucket

Like mother, like son.

Photobucket

Tin: Grr! Having a crush sucks! *angry face*

Photobucket

Me: Hey, what happened to the green skin?
Liant: I want to see how the other half lives. Besides, there aren't any black magic love spells in my grimoire.

Photobucket

Now that she's not locked in her room, Liant resumes her stalking.

Photobucket

Best class name ever.

Photobucket

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

Photobucket

And that's what happens when you mess with a guy that has ten body points. Let that be a lesson to you, Crybaby Dormie.

And with that, it was time for the quads and Jessie to graduate and head on out in the real world. True to form, they all have awful transition outfits, except for Liant, who has her Neutral Witch uniform on.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Look kids! It's Grandma Trista's driver Minion! Guess he moonlights as a taxi driver as well.

And that's it! I made up my mind halfway through the first semester of their freshman year that Beru would be heir, but then I got attached to Smaug all over again. I really like both, so I'm going for double heirs! Am I crazy or what?

As long as Liant makes lots of visits. ^_^ (Why the hell do I always get attached to the sims that you never pick. Agh!) But I do adore Jessie, I think he'll make a nice addition. :-D

Jessie is adorable and I can't wait to see how he's going to react to fatherhood (the "more than 10 sims on a lot" hack + "quads and triplets" mod + two heirs = chaos)

Or so I hope. I haven't played anything past this update yet.

I've been following this since it started (was going to comment sooner but forgot my password, ha) and it's really one of the best legacies I've read. It manages to be interesting without going the 'omg FAIL' route and all the literary references (especially Tolkien) make me swoon.

Glad you're going with Smaug too. He's my favourite. :3

Re: long-time lurker
Thank you! The Tolkien Generation have been my favorite sims to play. I haven't decided on what book to use for the next generation yet, but looking at my bookcase for ideas, the Hitchhiker's Guide is going to be somewhere in this legacy. :)

Honestly, Smaug's been my favorite since the beginning. He might not get much screen time, but he's still quite the woobie. ♥

SMAUG FTW!

And you got it wrong, the darkside doesn't have COOKIES, it has YAOI!

Yeah, we do. Care to join us? *hands Yaoi, a cookie and an official Darkside shirt*

I'm hoping that my laptop doesn't explode with all the sims that are going to wind up on the home lot, but yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing how many times two romance sims go nuts while raising future bandmates kids.
