A Novel Idea Ch. 4.3


Photobucket

47 pictures under the cut.



Last time, Death decided to practically become a part of the family, first by coming around to collect Demi, who had starved herself to death because she was way too into stalking her brother-in-law, and then again for Juan and Jane. Both of them had lived full lives and it almost makes sense that the two of them die from old age together, mostly because they couldn't seem to spend a second apart in life without going and hunting the other down for a makeout session.

Oh yeah, and the kids turned into toddlers.

Photobucket

Shane managed to be the only toddler to be held in the family shot, further cementing his title as Generation 5 favorite.

Photobucket

He's also the first kid to learn all of his toddler skills, because Chiyo had every single want pop up one right after the other.

Photobucket

But that's not to say that the other two were completely ignored.

Carpenter: I'm not in that shot!
Me: Well, okay, so you were ignored for the better part of your toddlerhood. But Agnes wasn't!

Speaking of Agnes, her daddy took over potty training duties from Grandma Beru:

Photobucket

Damian: *sigh* Why can't you be more like your sister?

Wow, I've never seen such blatant dislike of a child in this legacy by practically all of the family members before. This has to be some sort of record. Come on guys, where's the Carpenter love?

Photobucket

Proof that he did eventually learn toddler skills. Also, I think he's growing into his facial features a bit better.

Photobucket

Smaug: I even made that lobster just for her!

This is pretty much all that Smaug does when he's not working or I'm not controlling him.

Smaug: WHY DIDN'T SHE JUST EAT THE LOBSTER? *sobs*

Photobucket

I feel so bad for him. I think he and Demi were three bolters, but even Trista didn't act this way when Author died.

Smaug: I have nothing to live for. My life is so empty. I'm so...so...
Me: Sad?
Smaug: No, ANGRY! I need to kill something!

Photobucket

A job change and a few promotions later, and Smaug is granted his wish.

Photobucket

Smaug: My life has purpose again!

Like mother, like son, no? Trista and Jane would be so proud to see that the family legacy of Evil Masterminds has continued onto the third generation.

Photobucket

Birthday for Shane!

Photobucket

Child Shane: still #1.

A few days later, his siblings follow suit.

Photobucket

First Carpenter.

Photobucket

Then Agnes. She inherited Jessie's nose, IMO.

Photobucket

I don't see a lot of Damian in her features at all.

Photobucket

Especially after giving her a makeover. She takes after Chiyo's side of the family the most, I think.

Photobucket

Author leads this update's ghostly hauntings! Hi, honey!

Author: *cries* My little princess! *bawls*

He spent nearly all night crying at Jane's tombstone. The poor guy; she really was his favorite. *pats*

Photobucket

Trista chose to forgo mourning her firstborn in favor of scaring the crap out of her great-granddaughter's husband.

Photobucket

And Author took a break from bemoaning his daughter's demise to levitate a few lamps, which is his favorite thing to do.

Photobucket

Jane must have heard her daddy, because she made her first appearance since joining the ranks of the non-living. But who is she scaring?

Photobucket

See? Least favorite child in this legacy. Even the ghosts don't like him.

Photobucket

Or else she's just going down the lists in order of who's closest. This is Jane, I can never tell what she's planning on doing.

Photobucket

Where's Shane running off to? Is he trying to escape the house full of ghosts?

Photobucket

Nope. We caved and got our first animal of the legacy, just because he had "get a puppy" on his wants. Everyone, meet Maxx.

Shane: PUPPY! *loves*

Photobucket

Beru: Jessie, babe?
Jessie: Yeah?
Beru: The house is getting crowded, what with three pre-teens running around, a new dog, my parents and grandparents haunting all the lamps, my daughter not keeping her hands off her husband (Three words, Beru: Pot. Kettle. Black.) and my brother bringing home his evil henchmen every other day. What say you and I find ourselves a little recording studio we can live over?
Jessie: You mean, we can have privacy to woo hoo on the sofas whenever we want to?
Beru: The sofas, the kitchen, the bathroom, wherever.

Photobucket

Jessie: I'll meet you in the taxi.

Photobucket

Bye guys! To tell the truth, I moved them out for two reasons. One, my lot was still running a little slow and I thought that by narrowing down the number of sims living in the main house, it would run better. Two, I fell in love with Jessie and Beru and I don't want them to die. Beru's generation had double heirs, so Smaug is still technically holding Gen 3's place in the Legacy House.

And now no one else can starve to death because they're too busy watching in-laws grope. I'm looking at you, Damian.

Damian: What?

Photobucket

Carpenter: MY LIFE IS HORRIBLE! *rage*

Photobucket

Carpenter: Why doesn't anyone love me? *slumps*

Well, maybe if you didn't stomp down your sister's dollhouse or act mean to everyone else, people might like you a little better. Another first: Carpenter is the first kid in the legacy to throw a temper tantrum.

Photobucket

His little outburst is soon forgotten, because it's time for birthdays! (Actually, there were a few days in between birthdays, but nothing exciting happened that was noteworthy.)

Photobucket

Shane: *explodes*

Photobucket

Into a great big ball of cutie pie! Look at that face! *loves*

Photobucket

Side by side comparison shot. It's clear that his features favor Damian.

Photobucket

Photobucket

And then the almost!twins.

Photobucket

Agnes: I have boobies, Daddy! *is a cutie*
Damian: *goes to get his baseball bat*

Yep, you're going to have to beat boys off with sticks once they get a look at her.

Photobucket

And Carpenter. I really do think he's growing into his face as he ages. If he weren't such a jerk, then I'd totally put him in running for heir.

I'm going to wait to post everyone's stats once they hit college, and I haven't looked at their personality traits, but it seems as if Carpenter probably has one nice point, Agnes is outgoing, and Shane more than likely has ten neat points. The boy loves to clean, and every morning he starts his day off by making up everyone's beds. I'm going to start calling him Cinderella if this trend continues.

Photobucket

The first thing that the boys do? Give/Get noogies.

Shane: Happy birthday, little bro!
Carpenter: *silently plots Shane's demise*

Photobucket

The girl is glued to the bathroom mirror.

Photobucket

Shane rolled Knowledge, and he had the want to get the scholarship you get from being abducted. This is the first time that any of my teenage sims actually had that want, so I indulged him. I mean, I've been granting all of his wants so far, why stop now?

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Shane: I changed my mind! I don't want the scholarship!

Too late, sweetie.

Photobucket

Shane: This had so better be worth it.

Photobucket

Smaug was at work when Shane came back, but the rest of the family came outside to greet him, with various reactions to his abduction.

Damian: *worries* I'm too young to be a grandfather! *worries some more* I hope Carpenter's dad wasn't on board...
Agnes: *ROTFLMAO* Just wait till I tell everyone at school!
Chiyo: *cheers* Woo! Great job, son!
Carpenter: *shouts* Dad? Are you in there? ANYONE, BEAM ME UP! NO ONE LIKES ME DOWN HERE!

And I'll leave it with that. Next: college! Togas! Drunken parties! Oh, and some studying too, but mostly HEDONISTIC PARTIES!

Oy, that would mean I would have to make one of them a sparkly vampire, because you can't have Twilight without 'em. Hrmm... *puts names on consideration list*

oooh, I forgot about werewolves. And I've had this one wolf practically begging to be let inside for the past couple of nights now.

(also, I fail at changing LJ accounts. I should have changed to bossy_muses before replying to comments.

Aww poor Carpenter, no one loves him. His nose weirds me out though.

NaNo must be going really well for us to see an update! :-D

NaNo is going VERY well, but I'm procrastinating on writing the last 5,000 words. I don't know why, I'm not even anywhere NEAR an ending! (and the fact that I'm doing a Basch/OC fic and trying to figure out how I'm going to make it a happy ending while still keeping true to the original game ending is HARD. I might wind up saying "screw canon! Gabranth lives!" when everything is all said and done.)

Shane has got to be the third most adorable sim I've had in this family. Author and Darcy will always be my favorites, but Shane is too cute for words. I love his smustling faces, especially when he gets lost on where to move next. ♥

Can't wait to see what he looks like when he grows up!

So I finally caught up with your legacy. You're legacy is my favorite from all the ones I've seen. I don't know how you keep track of all those kids! My favorite generation was 2 but you're overall legacy is awesome!

BTW, I'm Shannon. Sorry if I sound like a creeper! I'm really not. I just really like your legacy. Great job!

Thanks for reading! Sorry I didn't reply quicker; I haven't been getting some comment notifications for some reason lately.

I have a notepad handy that I've scribbled all the names on so I can keep them straight. Otherwise, I'd have been a gonner in Generation 4. Thanks again for reading, I'm glad you like it!
