Chapter 4.8: Catfights, Weddings and Babies

Welcome, welcome!  The Boudreauxs have been on a little hiatus while I’m in school.  Luckily, it’s spring break and I don’t have to work on Mondays and Wednesdays.  I have missed them just has much as you have.

Just to refresh your memories, here’s what happened last time on The Legacy: Gaston molested his ice bunny pop, Suzette is dating town Slayer Christal Seaweedy, Sabine aged up to a young adult, and the rest of the family was pretty much adorable the entire time.

DV:  Hey Sabine!  What are you up to?

Sabine:  Shhh, I’m writing.

Sabine's book is going well

Sabine is well on her way to becoming a Renaissance Sim.  Her first task is to max out her writing skill.

Sabine wants to move in with Tony

And she’s got other plans of her own.  All in good time dear.

Gaston:  What happened, my little teapot?!

Randall:  I had a small accident.

Gaston:  Come with me.  I know how to make it all better.

Lafayette invited his girlfriend Bethany over.  She’s already aged into a young adult.  It’s okay, ‘cause Lafayette is only a few days away from turning into a YA as well.

Screenshot-17

And it’s a good thing,  The kissing is quite awkward.

Screenshot-18

DV:  She so pretty!!

Lafayette:  Yeah, and I’m gonna tap that.

DV: I would send you to your room for that comment but then I’d only be encouraging that behavior.

Screenshot-22

Here’s a better pic in all her Steampunk glory.

Screenshot-23

Bethany:  I really should be going.  I’m so exhausted.

Lafayette:  We could have a slumber party. I’ll even share my sleeping bag with you.

Guess who else was invited over?

Screenshot-19

DV: It’s Tony!

Tony:  Lafayette’s girl is just good enough to eat.

DV: Uh, uh.  Stay away.  You got a girl of your own!

Screenshot-25

DV:  What’s that face about?

Screenshot-26

Tony:  Sabine, will you be the Buffy to my Angel?

Screenshot-27

Sabine:  YES, YES, YES!!

DV:  Seriously, she did the cutest little happy dance.

Screenshot-29

DV:  Nice job Tony.

Well, in all the excitement I completely forgot the Suzette is supposed be having a birthday today.  Yay!

Screenshot-33

Sabine:  I hear you have a big game coming up Daddy.

Screenshot-37

Randall:  Enough of this sports talk.  So Tony, what do you do for a living?

Tony:  *chokes*

DV: Oh, I’m not sure I mentioned this.  But Tony works as a Decoy, well on his way to being Emperor of Ebil.  He’s also leader of Town Dracula.

Screenshot-38

DV: Tony was relieved he didn’t have to answer that question as he was saved just in time by Gaston’s little breakdown.

Gaston:  My baby will be all grown up soon!!! Ahhhh!

Screenshot-39

DV: Which spawned Randall’s little outburst.

Randall:  OMG!!!   I’m married to Gaston Boudreaux!!

Screenshot-41

DV:  Um, awkward moment much?

Screenshot-44

DV:  okay, this is just creepy.  You’re gonna do it in your parent’s bedroom?

Screenshot-45

DV: Ugh, and you’re going to do it in your daughter’s bedroom?

And the answers are Yes and Yes

Screenshot-46

Screenshot-47

DV: Seriously, I think we’ve got another Lisette on our hands.  Sabine and Tony did it like 4 times, completely autonomously.  Please let this night end…

.

Gaston Dring Promotion

DV: It’s good to be a celebrity.  Gaston gets a lot of these promotional jobs.  Which is good, ‘cause their bills are like 7k.

Screenshot-48

Randall:  *humming to himself*

DV:  Are you cooking?!

Randall:  Making pancakes for my lovah.

Screenshot-49

DV:  mmmm, looks….well done.

Screenshot-51

DV: Oookay.  It’s a coat rack.

Screenshot-52

It’s a busy day in the Boudreaux household.

Lafayette award ceremony

First, Lafayette has an awards ceremony.

Lafayette has a recital

Gaston team won 15-0

But it was worth it in the end.  The team kicked ass.

Which allowed for another promotion and Gman is not maxed his career level.  Go, Gaston, go!

Tony:  I can’t help it.  I just love her so much!

Screenshot-61

*sucking face*  Yep they’re official.

Screenshot-62

DV: this is Melodie Byrd.  She looks just like Bradley!  But she has Sim!Amanda’s hair color.

Screenshot-64

DV: And this is Melodie’s twin sister, January.  She doesn’t really look like Bradley or Sim!Amanda

Screenshot-66

DV: Love is in the air.  Christal and Suzie are all in the mood.

Tonya Stormcaller:  This is a little awkward.

Screenshot-68

Christal:  I just got lucky in the shower.

It was a very nice party until trouble started to brew.

Screenshot-73

Screenshot-74

Screenshot-75

DV: Way to stay classy guys.  Geez, I can’t take you, I mean, Sim!Amanda can’t take you anywhere!

Screenshot-76

Chapter 4.7: The Ice Cream Man Cometh

Last time on The Legacy: Lafayette grew up into a teenager and all the kids went to prom.  Lafayette tried really hard to set the house on fire.  Gaston and Randall were all cute and lovey.  AND no one died!  It was all very exciting (particularly that last part).

Random Story Progression Updates:

On a side note, anyone who know me in RL knows I’m a sucker for a stray. The count in my house is now up to 5 dogs and cat. Every last one of them rescues.

So this will come as very funny:

Neighborhood Pet Adoption

My house is the Neighborhood Pet Adoption Center!

And look what we have up for adoption right now:

Screenshot-222

Aren’t they precious? Someone please adopt them.

garg promoted to sous chef

Sim!Garg has made it to Sous-Chef! You’re almost there Garg!

Belisama has good advice

And Belisama has some great advise for new vampire fledgling, Stella Striker.

And now back to The Legacy…

Gaston got an opportunity forever and day ago from his agent to go dancing over at The Brightmore.  So with the kids still at prom and Randall working on his fishing skill, Gaston headed out to fulfill his agents wishes.

Screenshot-138

Gaston: Excuse me hot stuff.   Can I bother you for a burger?  All that dancing has me famished.

Bartender:  Baby, you can have a burger with a side of me if you want.

Gaston: *shifty eyes*

Bartender:  Or, how bout just a free burger?

Gaston:  Deal!  And I’ll throw in an autograph.

Gaston was burning up the dance floor

And that little visit landed him him some cash and a celebrity point!

Oh my!  What’s this?

Screenshot-139

It’s the Ice Cream Truck!!!!

True Story: We have an ice cream truck that drives through our neighborhood all the time.  But they sell mostly weed.  Which is a pretty ingenious idea.  Stoners love them some ice cream (also a true story).

And you know who else loves ice cream?  Only your favorite superstar athlete! Now, let us watch Gaston make sweet, sweet love to his ice bunny.

Screenshot-140

Gaston:  Don’t worry bunny.  I won’t bite…hard

Screenshot-141Screenshot-143Screenshot-144

Screenshot-147

Screenshot-150

Gaston:  Yep, I know how to lick ‘em.

Screenshot-149

Gaston:  We’re getting very cheeky this chapter.

I know. I’m feeling very….devious tonight  *tee hee*

don't keep cake in your pocket

This is why we don’t keep cake in our inventory, Randall.

Screenshot-152

Randall:  I’ve been cooking up a plan.  Have you finished reading your driving manual?

Suzette:  Heck ya!

Randall: Well go get some clothes on ‘cause Daddy’s taken you driving

Screenshot-153

Randall:  That is the fastest I’ve ever seen that girl change clothes.

Screenshot-154

Randall:  Yes!  First step driving, second step moving out.

Suzette:  Come on Dad!!

Screenshot-155

Randall:  Now, Suze.  Driving is much like playing chess.

Screenshot-156

Randall:  You must be able to anticipate what the other opponent, or drivers in this case, are going to do next.

Screenshot-157

Randall:  Like I failed to anticipate how slow you were actually going to drive.

Screenshot-158

I mean seriously!  She drove up this hill slower than two turtles humping in peanut butter.

Both Suzette and Sabine got their driver’s license with a hitch.  And for being such studious…uh….students.  The family bought them this:

Screenshot-161

Suze has been wishing for a piano forever and now the family has a little cash Randall and Gaston decided to splurge a little.

Gaston visits the sick kids

Gaston spent Saturday visiting the sick kids at the hospital.  He’s such a good role model.  As all Superstar Athletes should be.

Screenshot-164

I forget why I took this picture.

Randall:  ‘Cause I’m the bees knees.

Yeah, ya are!

Cristal is a crappy slayer

Did I mention that Suzette’s new girlfriend, Christal is the Slayer?  She’s not a very good one. But a Slayer none-the-less.

gaston lost a game

Well crap.  This is the first game Gaston’s team has lost all season.  And it looks like they got creamed!

Oh hey!  Guess whose birthday it is?  Sabine’s!  (finally)

And Lafayette has the perfect way to start the celebration…

Screenshot-175

Lafayette:  It’s gonna work this time.  I just know it!

Screenshot-176

Gaston:  Bethany’s here.  Let’s hope we don’t catch her on fire.

Screenshot-178

Randall:  Yeah, I’m rockin’ these speedos.

Screenshot-179

Suzette:  Stand back!  I brought he fire extinguisher.

Gaston: Good thinking honey.

Lafayette:  You guys suck.  This is going to work.

Screenshot-181

Randall:  Suze, get that extinguisher!

Screenshot-182

Lafayette:  SCORE!  See I told you it would work.

Screenshot-183Screenshot-185

Screenshot-186

Gaston:  They’re beautiful, son.

Screenshot-187

Sabine:  So can we focus on me for a minute?

Screenshot-190

Everyone:  Woooooo

Screenshot-192

Oh, look.  She looks pretty much the same.

Sabine rolled Great Kisser.  And her LTW is to be a Renaissance Sim.

Screenshot-193

Gordon:  Did I hear someone mention cake?

Yep, it’s Sabine’s birthday.  Come join the fun.

Screenshot-195

Asher:  Gaston said there was cake.  And boobies.

Wow, word really gets around down in the Underworld.  Wait, what?  Boobies?

Screenshot-194

Oh dear God!  Christal!  Put some clothes on!  You may sleep au natural at home but this is not appropriate night clothes for a slumber party.

Suzette:  She can share my sleeping bag.  You know, to keep warm.

Absolutely not!

Screenshot-202

Georgie’s son Derrick is sleeping in Sabine’s bed.  Glad he made himself at home.

Screenshot-203

I’m guessing Asher’s grave isn’t as cozy as this sleeping bag.

Screenshot-204

You can tell there were a bunch of teens at this party.  The house is mess.  Maybe the maid will actually earn her salary.

Screenshot-207

Oh Christal, that’s so nice!  And I see you’ve put on actual clothing.

Christal:  Just trying to be a good house guest.

Screenshot-208

Gaston:  Hey Slayer!  What do you think you’re doing with that half eaten cake plate?

Screenshot-209

Gaston:  om nom nom nom

Screenshot-210

Gaston:  And that’s how it’s done in the Boudreaux household, Slayer.

Screenshot-211

Christal: That was disgusting.

Screenshot-212

Gaston:  Don’t touch any more of those plates.  I’ve got my eye on you Slayer.

Screenshot-213

Christal:  Hey, there’s a ghost in my bed. Sad smile  That’s Asher Donovan.  I better take a pic for Mom.  She loves all that old music.

Hey now!  That was only like 2 generations ago.

So I’m thinking I like this Christal chick.

Suzette does not find Christal attractive

Unfortunately, Suzette doesn’t find her attractive in the least. I’m so disappointed.

Screenshot-215

Gaston:  Hey there, you smexy mad hatter.

Screenshot-216

Gaston:  You wanna get physical?

Randall:  I like the way you think.

Screenshot-219

Randall:  This is not what I thought you meant.

Gaston:  Shut your pie hole and give me another set of 10!

Screenshot-220

This is our sucky maid.

Screenshot-221

And even after Christal cleaned up, the Maid still failed to clean up the last 2 plates.

field trip

Oh fun!  I’m sure Suze and Lafayette will have a blast.

slayer got into a scrap

And here we see Christal’s ineptness as a Slayer…again.

slayer head to the hospital

It was bad enough she needed medical attention. She is no Buffy Summers.

Well, after that miscommunication Randall rolled a wish to go to a dive bar.  So I sent him over to Waylon’s.  And guess who was there.  It’s Seaweedy!

Screenshot-223

Randall:  I hear from Sim!Amanda that you are brilliant.

Seaweedy:  It’s true.  Now buy me a drink.

Screenshot-225

Also at Waylon’s was Sim!Garg.  And here we see her ineptness at ordering an alcoholic beverage

Sim!Garg: Umm, do you have something that doesn’t taste like it has alcohol in it?

You want a Long Island Iced Tea, sweetie.

Sim!Garg:  Thanks DV.

But only one. Two and you’ll be on the floor (true story!)

And I would like to leave you now with a scene that could actually have taken place in my RL house.

Screenshot-246

The black and tan dog on the right is Callie, our 85lb Pittador (pit bull, labrador mix).  And the other dog is Roxie, our 55lb pit bull.  They can’t stand it when the other is getting more attention.  Which makes this pic all the more funny.  I’m not sure you can tell from the pic (you may need to click on it) but Callie’s expression is priceless.  And then you have Roxie blowing a raspberry.  This is exactly what it’s like at my house.

Thanks for reading!

Chapter 4.6: Starlight and Fire

Welcome back to The Boudreaux Legacy!  It’s been awhile since the last chapter so let’s recap shall we?  The kids were all in weird moods.  Suzette was asked to the prom by the town Slayer, Christal.  Matthew Hamming made a special trip back to Bridgeport to pay Geobe Stormcaller a visit which didn’t seem to faze Geobe since, by the end of the chapter, he slayed Genevieve.  Will Sabine make it to prom before she ages into a young adult?   Let’s find out…

Screenshot-11

Gargantua:  Oh, my.  I’m so nervous.  I really wanted Sabine to go to prom.

Deviouslyvivid:  No need to be nervous, dear friend.  Because, today is actually Lafayette’s birthday!  For some reason my aging was all screwy and once I fixed it Sabine still had 2 days until she grew up.

Screenshot

Garg:  What a relief!  And we still get this awesome party.

Screenshot-3

Lafayette:  You know what I hate.  I hate when house guests leave dirty dishes just laying around.  You’re not a rude house guest are you Graham?

Screenshot-2

Graham:  Um, you’re a weird and scary little kid, you know that?

Screenshot-9

Deviouslyvivid: There are some seriously weird looking party guests.  No clue who the token black guy is.  But the guy with the weird duck lips is Ace Xu Wilde.  Hmm, maybe that’s just his “model pose”

Screenshot-13

Deviouslyvivid:  Lafayette made out for his birthday.  Look at all those gifts!

Screenshot-12

Lafayette:  Yeah, it’s good to be the king.

Deviouslyvivid: *rolls eyes*

Screenshot-14

Deviouslyvivid: Aww its little Melodie Byrd.  Sim!Amanda’s daughter.  Well, one of them.

Screenshot-15

Lafayette:  Oh no!  If I grow up now I won’t be the King!

Deviouslyvivid: Nope, sorry kiddo.

Screenshot-16

Deviouslyvivid:  He looks just like Randall!  Adorable!

Lafayette: Yeah, whatever man.

Screenshot-17

Steven Littler:  I get to eat cake and see my favorite sports star!  Best birthday party ever!

Screenshot-18

Deviouslyvivid:  Poor Georgie is still mourning Genevieve.

Georgie:  Oh, those Stormcallers will pay.

Screenshot-19

Everyone:  Yay!  We made it through a birthday without anyone dying!!

Deviouslyvivid: I know, it’s a miracle!

Screenshot-28

Suzette:  Is that a strobe light?  I hate strobe lights!

Deviouslyvivid:  Remind you of someone?

Screenshot-30

Sabine:  I hope I don’t get voted to be legacy heir.  I really don’t want to get married.

Deviouslyvivid:  Well, kiddo.  I wouldn’t worry about it just yet.  That’s not for at least another chapter or two.

Screenshot-32

Deviouslyvivid:  Gaston’s getting his celebrity on.

Screenshot-33

Randall:  Sabine you know this desk chair is empty.

Sabine:  Yeah, I’m good right here Dad.

Screenshot-36

Garg:  Time for a ghost story.

Deviouslyvivid: Oh, I love ghost stories! *settles in*

Screenshot-35

Suzette: Garg does see us over right?

Screenshot-37

Garg: My bad! I’ll tell my story once everyone has finished their homework.

Screenshot-44

Deviouslyvivid:  Ooo, look who’s come to play.  It’s Corbin!

Screenshot-45Screenshot-46

Deviouslyvivid:  Looks like Garg found something else to keep her occupied.  A pillow fight with Jolie.  Wow, they’re getting pretty violent.

Screenshot-47

Deviouslyvivid:  Oh, sweet!  Nan has decide to pay us a visit as well.

Nan: Are you kidding?  Even death couldn’t stop me from watching the fireworks.

Deviouslyvivid: Fireworks?

Screenshot-49

Lafayette:  Oh yeah!  This is gonna be awesome!!

Screenshot-50

Deviouslyvivid: Umm, I don’t think that’s suppose to happen.

Screenshot-51

Lafayette:  Bummer!  They didn’t work!

Screenshot-53

Lafayette:  Is it me or is that fire getting bigger?

Screenshot-54

Lafayette:  Oh Shit!

Garg:  If I’d of know there was going to be a bonfire I would have brought the marshmallows.

Screenshot-55

Deviouslyvivid:  Sabine was the only one with enough sense to get the fire extinguisher.

Screenshot-56

Gaston:  Sweet a bonfire.  Who brought the marshmallows?

Lafayette:  Dad!  There’s a fire in the backyard!

Screenshot-57

Nan:  So nice to see Georgie.  She’s looking pretty hot.

Screenshot-59

Georgie:  Oh hey, there’s Auntie Nan!

Deviouslyvivid: Oh God!  You are in the fire Georgette!!!

Screenshot-62

Sabine: Whew!  Glad we were able to stop the flames before they reached the house.

Screenshot-66

Sabine:  I KNOW Lafayette isn’t setting off that other firework!

Screenshot-67

Sabine:  These damn fireworks are nothing but trouble!

Screenshot-69

Garg:  Oh my stars!  It’s Corbin Boudreaux!

Screenshot-70

Deviouslyvivid:  It’s Graham’s turn to save the day.

Nan: Be careful son!

Screenshot-71

Georgie:  This fire is so full of awesome!

Screenshot-72

Garg:  The smoke is too thick!  I can’t see Corbin anymore!

Screenshot-73

Graham:  Oh no!  My ass is fire!

Screenshot-74

Georgie: Don’t worry cousin!  I’ll put out your flaming ass!

Graham:  Hot pants….hot pants!!

Screenshot-75

Deviouslyvivid:  Well, at least people seem to be having a good time.

Screenshot-76

Nan:  I’m so glad you’re alright.  You know, you’re my favorite son.

Graham:  Momma, I’m your only son.

Screenshot-77

Georgie:  This never would have happened if Geney was still alive.  She would have know proper fireworks protocol.

Deviouslyvivid:  Yes, she was a fantastic firewoman.  Don’t worry.  That Geobe will get what’s coming to him.

Screenshot-79

Deviouslyvivid: This was so much excitement for Token that he fell asleep on the patio.

Screenshot-80

Deviouslyvivid: As did this little guy.

Screenshot-81

Corbin:  I think that was enough excitement for one night.  I’m going back to my grave.

Deviouslyvivid: Well don’t be a stranger Corbin!

The next morning the household woke up to this….

Screenshot-22

Deviouslyvivid: Seriously guys.  Get a room!

Screenshot-27

Deviouslyvivid: Oh no!  It’s a land shark!

Jolie:  Ohhhhh, I have to peeee!!!

Deviouslyvivid: This could be interesting.  This seems like a brave little kitty.

Screenshot-88

Puppy:  Hey Cat

Cat: Mr. Puppy.  Are you finished with that newspaper.

Puppy:  Yep, have at it.

Screenshot-90

Deviouslyvivid: Jesus!  This cat is flippin’ psychotic!

Deviouslyvivid: Don’t you dare you little jerk

Paper Girl:  Just doin’ my job.

Kitty:  Nothing like a fresh paper in the morning.

Deviouslyvivid: I hate you both.

Token:  I’m so hungry!

Deviouslyvivid: Go home!  And take that damn cat with you.

Screenshot-95

Deviouslyvivid: Crap!

Screenshot-96
