Heading out the door, so Michonne spam for now. She has the independent trait, so is often doing stuff on her own without the hew-mon servants. Hunting, playing, befriending strays, sleeping on the newspaper, eating cake off the floor. You know, cat things.
Plans for a day trip fell through at the last minute, so that means Morley Legacy updates.
Emanuelle figured she’d strike while the iron was hot and knock off her social requirements for the week in one evening. Invite Sterling over for a date, then throw a party once the date was over. They ended up engaged before the first guest arrived.
Normally, one would think that this could turn the planned feast party into a wedding party (because what better way for a social butterfly to get to know people *and* stock her fridge?) but as usual, Sims have other ideas. Emanuelle only invited adults, but apparently somebody couldn’t get a sitter.
Random Kid: I am the king of this party!
Emanuelle: I don’t remember inviting you. Sterling, Do you know him? Sterling?
Sterling: Reading here. Shush.
Emanuelle heads back to the library to check out the online dating scene. (Mr. Married Mortimer had a profile, too, ahem.
We’ll assume he’s been too busy with the food stand to take it down.) Her best match, Sterling, just so happens to be sitting across from her at the next desk.
Emanuelle: Hello, big boy.
Sterling: Um, do I know you?
Emanuelle: You will, soon, and very, very well.
Since a cat person without a cat is something nobody wants to see, meet Michonne. Genius, hyper, independent, slightly cynical about this Sim who’s taking care of her. In short, a cat.
On with the story. Emanuelle and Michonne move into Eltham’s Drift, ready to take on the world. Michonne explores their new home while Emanuelle gets down to business. Off to the library to check the job listings, and then to the festival grounds to check out the local talent.
She gets there exactly at closing, in time for food merchant Mortimer Goth to get off work.
Emanuelle: I’m new in town. I need a husband who wants four kids. Interested?
Mortimer: I’m already married.
Emanuelle: Seeing as how we’re eating snowcones on the same bench…
Mortimer: Still married.
Emanuelle: This is going to be harder than I thought.
Well, that’ll teach me to prepare properly for the next patch. Game went down in big firey ball of fail, including saves. Debating whether to try and resurrect the current random legacy or start over. Decisions, decisions.
Random Legacy 1.5
Dude: Woohoo with me, madam? After breaking my toilet? I think not.
Cecilia: How about you, Random Party Guy?
Random Party Guy: Uh, no.
Cecilia: Shirtless Pool Guy?
Shirtless Pool Guy: Don’t even think about it.
Cecilia: Fine. I’m adopting.
Welcome Bradley. Bradley joined the family as an infant, but since babies look like babies, we’ll skip to toddler.
Jennifer spam, because of reasons.
Legacy has been played up to the start of Generation two; still need to edit photos because the Kents are fond of nighttime doings.
Random Legacy 1.4
Cecilia barely made it through Jennifer’s infancy, between the gardening, the feeding and the dirty diapers, but somehow she and Jennifer survived, the garden keeping them in enough simoleans to stay afloat.
I have no idea why Dina Caliente Goldbeard (story progression wed her to Juan Jr) hates Cecilia so much, but there is bad blood between these two. Maybe Dina has a secret tendre for Dude?
Dude does not get father of the year award. He’s usually busy when Cecilia invites him over, and when he does come, Jennifer is not his top priority.
Dude: why are you growing all these plants again?
Cecilia: So your child and I can eat.
Jennifer: I better learn some skills ASAP.
Random Legacy 1.3
Cecilia picked up everything she needed to start on both family and career ambitions with her visit to Dude LaMer’s house. She hopped on the bike all by herself, because that’s how one gets to the hospital when in labor, it seems.
No matter that Dude refused all of Cecilia’s invitations prior to this, but when does he decide they must chat? As she’s entering the hospital. I imagine the conversation as such:
Cecila: Can’t talk now. Kinda busy. Sure, come on over. I have a surprise for you.
Dude: Is it a jellyfish? I really like jellyfish.
Cecilia: I am not filled with confidence regarding your parenting skills. I’m calling her Jennifer.
Random Legacy 1.2: Seeds of Greatness
Cecilia moves into her new home, only to find all of the plumbing has sprung a leak. No problem, as tinkering shall become her hobby, nay, her obsession. Must…fix…all…the…things.
Next on the list: find plantables to start garden and find special gentleman friend to start family. Being the resourceful sort, Cecilia finds both in the unattended garden of a local resident, who happens to be single. Good thing Dude LaMer is the friendly sort.
