Chapter 4.10: Holy Shit, it’s an Update!

Wow, that was an incredibly long hiatus!  It’s kind of ridiculous that I started this legacy in May 2010 and am just now on Gen 4.  Ack!  I need to get this thing going! But first I just wanted to share a brief look at what I’ve been up to since my last post almost 2 YEARS ago!!  Nursing school has pretty much eaten my soul… and my social life.  Also, SnapChat is awesome.

rest areaDeep fear of public restrooms.  This was a major breakthrough.

explosive puppy poopSpent all day cleaning up human poop only to come home and clean up puppy poop. There was so much *shudder*

mad cheddar at casinoThis looks like play, but I assure you there was nursey stuff going on the next day.  Also, there was absolutely no excuse for crazy eyes ‘cause I only won $23.  lol

have a nice dayExams can suck it hard.

WTH was I thinkingDaily sentiment.  But I’m loving it!

Enough crazy time with Amanda.  Who’s ready for a legacy update?

So just to recap: Lafayette is the new Gen 4 Heir.  He married Bethany, who’s a quirkly little Ghostbuster.  We love her immensely.  Randall and Gaston are now elders clinging to their last breaths (not really but that was pretty dramatic right?).

I thought we needed a quirky little house to go with our quirky little family.  And I found the Wheelhouse.  It’s an amazing Steampunk Victorian home.

And it comes with these sweat ridesScreenshot-2 (2)Screenshot-10

Screenshot-11Bethany:  Let’s woohoo in the car!

Lafayette:  Okay, but hurry before the Dads get there first.

Screenshot-12Gaston: Let’s woohoo in the elevator!

Randall: You read my mind.

Screenshot-15Lafayette: Baby, you really crank my tractor.

Bethany:  Aww, you say the sweetest things.  Let’s go check out that time machine.Screenshot-21Bethany:  You wanna piece of me bro?

Lafayette:  God, I love you!

Screenshot-22Lafayette: So, do you think this thing is safe?

Screenshot-29Bethany:  Dunno.  Press that button.  And that button there. And turn that thingy over there.

Screenshot-24Time Machine: Vwarp…Vwarp….Vwarp…

Screenshot-27Lafayette:  Dear God!! The Humanity!!!

Screenshot-28Bethany:  That was frackin’ awesome.

Lafayette:  Let’s never speak of that again.

Screenshot-32Awww…

Screenshot-33Lafayette: Ready to go again?

Seriously?  They love doin’ it in the time machine.  I finally had to just start cancelling actions ‘cause this is a legacy not a porno.

Screenshot-38DV: I just don’t even.  Who is this woman?  Why is she in our home? More importantly where is her shirt?!

Screenshot-40DV: And pants!!??  Mr. Unicorn is scarred for life.

And then this happened:Lafany have a child from the past

Welcome to the family Beauxregard Boudreaux!Screenshot-41And this is about where I totally lost my saved game.  I imagine it had something to do with the 2-year hiatus. *face palm*

So now the Boudreauxs live here:Screenshot-46

Screenshot-63Randall:  I am telling you Beth.  There was something other worldly in the sky.  And it was not a teapot!

Bethany:  It’s not that I don’t believe you.  But…

Screenshot-64Randall: Fine, why don’t you call the crazy police and have them come take me away.

Bethany:  That is always an option.

Bethany has no time for Randall’s shenanigans.  There are more important things to do at the new house.

Screenshot-69Bethany:  Look at the awesome things I can do!  I’m getting pretty good at this thing.

Screenshot-85DV: Uh, is that suppose to happen?

Bethany:  Everything is fine.  Trust me. I’m a pro.

Screenshot-87DV: Yep.  Looks fine to me.

Bethany:  You are not helping this situation.

Screenshot-91Bethany:  OUCH!  MY SPLEEN!!!

Screenshot-92Bethany:  Dear God the humanity!  Turn it off!  Turn it off!

Screenshot-99DV: *laughing hysterically* Are you okay?

Bethany:  Just… just don’t look at me.

Yeah, this is a ridiculously short chapter.  Mainly because it’s taken the good part of 2 days to get my game updated and everything installed the way it should be.  But I did finish the Family Tree. It’s so complete you may question if I did the work myself.  I did.

xxoo

Chapter 4.9: Crotchety Old Men and Strippers Galore

Last time on The Legacy:  Randall aged into an Elder (with his smexy teapot pants) and Sabine and Tony got married.  Suzette aged up to a YA, move out and married Chrystal Seaweedy.  They’re now expecting a little one.

Lafayette aged into a YA and became the Gen 4 official heir!

Random Story Progression Updates:

Ever wondered what a Grim looks like under those robes?Screenshot-3

Ack! Nothing!!  I guess Grim Tobey is retiring.  Could this graduate be the new Grim to take the next Boudreaux?

Sabine has Ella

Sabine gave birth to a little girl named Ella.

kenton boudreaux joins helsing

Ugh!  Kenton has joined the enemy.  I’m blaming the Shutter genes for this lack of familial pride.

And speaking of the Shutters…

lenny and georgie are having a baby

Georgie is expecting a baby!

And now on to our irregularly scheduled legacy…

Bethany:  *skeptical look* I’m listening…

Screenshot-12

Lafayette:  I think we should get married.

Bethany:  Holy shit!

Screenshot-13

Bethany:  Yes, of course!

Screenshot-15

Bethany:  That was the best idea ever.

Screenshot-14

Lafayette: Yes, it was.

Screenshot-2

DV: So, Bethany Atkins, you’ve just become the next legacy spouse.  What are you going to do now?

Bethany: mmmm, I have a fantastic idea!

Screenshot-4

Bethany:  SHIT!  Bad idea!

Screenshot-5

DV: That’s a snazzy outfit you got on.

Randall:  Arg, I’m a swashbuckling teapot.

DV: *facepalm*

So after I all my yelling about not letting the family have a dog, Gaston decided to have the lat word.

Screenshot-6

 Gaston:  I will hug you and love you and call you George.

Screenshot-7

 Stray:  But I’m a girl…

Screenshot-9

DV: Is this really safe?

Gaston:  What?  I can’t just leave him wet.

 DV:  You are a sexy beast.

Stripper: Yes, I know.

Screenshot-21

Sim!Garg: Yes! Best Boudreaux party ever!

Screenshot-22

 DV: Sabine and Jolie aren’t too interested though and opt for some games.

 Bethany:  Who the hell is this yahoo?

Screenshot-27

Tonya:  Seriously Mom?  I can’t take you anywhere!

Bethany: Is she dead?

Screenshot-29

 DV: Oh God!

Screenshot-30

 DV: Nope, we’re good people.  She’s just danced herself into a coma.

Screenshot-31

 Lafayette: I’m so glad she’s not dead.  Where would we bury the body?

DV: O_o

Screenshot-32

 Bethany:  Hey there Georgie.  Wanna glass of champagne?

Georgie:  No thanks.  I really shouldn’t be drinking until after the nooboo arrives.

Screenshot-33

Bethany: Who said anything about drinking?

Screenshot-34

 Georgie:  Don’t you dare Bethany Atkins!!

DV: DO EEETTT!!!

Screenshot-36DV: Glad you decided to return to the party Sim!Garg.

Sim!Garg: Well, I didn’t want to miss Stripper #1.  He’s already down to his skivvies.

DV: Um, yeah.  Go have another drink.

Screenshot-37

 Stripper #2:  Hey there sexy lady.  So you seeing anyone?

Jolie:  Yeah, my husband.

Stripper #2:  *sad face*

Screenshot-38

 DV: It’s Gordon!!

Gordon:  How you doin’?

Screenshot-39

 DV: Where are you going?

Bethany:  I can’t be late for my first day on the job.

DV: If you can tell, she’s in the Ghosthunting profession.

Screenshot-40

 Georgie:  Oh gawd!

Suzette: Whoa, that smarts.

Screenshot-41

 DV: What’s wrong with you Randall?

Randall: I wanted to be the next Boudreaux to have a baby.

DV: You are way too old.

Randall:  You’re mean.

DV: And your a crotchety old man.

Screenshot-44

 DV: Georgie was so exhausted she hopped into a bunk and went to sleep.

Screenshot-45

 Gordon:  This stinks!  I wanted the top bunk!

DV: What is up with the moody men?  Put away your vagina Gordon and pick another bed.

 Lafayette:  I do not like you vampire.

Tony:  Yeah, well your bachelor party music sucks ass.

Screenshot-60Lafayette: Is Dad okay?

Gaston: Yes son.  He just thinks he’s a dog right now.

Lafayette:  Uh, ok…

Screenshot-61

 Lafayette:  Well, I guess it’ll be up to you make the speech.

Screenshot-63

 Gaston: Only if you promise me grandchilren.

Lafayette: Done!

Screenshot-64

 DV: It must have been a pretty unmoving speech.  Everyone ignored him.

Screenshot-67

Randall’s Surprise

Remember waaay back in August when I said Randall had a surprise for everyone?  Yeah, that was while ago.  I warned you that school would impede my updates, right?

Devious:  Randall would you like to show everyone your surprise?

Screenshot-84

Randall:  Oh, I see how it is. You’re ready for me now, huh?

Devious: Are you going to show them or not?

Screenshot-83

Randall:  I guess so…

Devious: Don’t roll your eyes at me!

Randall: Yeah, yeah

Randall:  It’s a teapot room!!!!  Gaston said I could decorate our bedroom however I wanted.  He’s the best husband in all of Simkind.

Screenshot-7 (2)

Randall:  I have a fantastic little spot where I can practice my teapot song and read about teapots and discover new tea recipes.

Devious: I like that you included Gordon in your new design

Randall:  Yes, he’s my hero.

Screenshot-8

Randall:  and here are the custom curtains that I had specially designed for this room.

Devious: I’m glad you like them.  I call this design Teapots of Doom

Randall: Quit interrupting…

Screenshot-9

Randall:  Our new bed.  I heart these new teapot lights.

Devious: That is a very high night stand Randall.  How are you supposed to reach that light?

Randall: …

Screenshot-10

Randall:  and one of my favorite pieces, the teapot rug.  Mama Lisette bought when they had a lay over in Simcago.

Devious: Well Randall, I think you did a wonderful job.  Although, that bunny is a kinda creepy.

Randall:  Shhhh, he can hear you, you know.

Devious: Like I said, creepy.

Devious:  Are you finished?  Can I show them the rest of the redesigned house?

Randall:  *in the corner talking to Creepy Bunny*

Devious: Ookay…

Devious: Anyway, here’s is rest of the house…

Screenshot-3

Devious: New pattern and color palette for the upstairs.  It had that bird pattern before.  Probably the most notable change is the spiral staircase.  Loves it!

Screenshot-4

Devious: This used to be Lis’s room.  It’s now Gaston’s workout room.  It’s decorated with his various awards and sports memorabilia.  I’m sure Sabine is relieved that we’ve moved the treadmill out of her room.

Screenshot-5

Devious: This was Guy’s old room and now is Sabine’s room.  I am loving the pattern on the walls with the red and gold colors.

Screenshot-7

Devious:  A redesigned nursery.  Lots of wonderful clutter on the walls now.

Screenshot-138

Devious: This is Suzette and LaFayette’s room.  They’re getting older so I though a dark background with neon colors would be fun.

.Screenshot-32

Devious: and we redid the kitchen.  I love large open floor plans for legacies.  It’s just more room when you have a big family and guests.  And the half walls break up the big wide space nicely without making it feel closed up like a regular wall would.

Screenshot-39

Devious:   A little reading nook in the kitchen.

Screenshot-40

Devious: This is the outside patio area that I installed in Chapter 4.4.  I added more foliage so I think it looks better.

Chapter 4.5 should be coming out in the next day or two.  Until then…

Me love you long time,

–DV
