The Gladrags Legacy- Showbiz has never been less glamorous Chapter 4-That’s one smooth talking Llama Welcome to the 4th chapter of The Gladrags Legacy! This is the first time I’ve used Live Journal to do a story, so I’m not quite sure what I’m doing. This should be fun!
When we left off... Liesl had just been made heir, and has now graduated from college. What will she do next? Well...
... She’s living with her parents. Typical. She still hasn’t got round to getting a job yet, but she’s doing fine. I think.
But she has found time to start dating this guy. This is Teppic. Say hi Teppic! Teppic: Hi there. See! I love Teppic so much. He’s an ALIEN for God’s sake!Teppic is named after a character from Pyramids, a Discworld book. He also comes with...
This little darling is Gytha. Named, of course, after GythaOgg, A Lancre Witch. Another Discworld reference for those who don’t read them. Gytha the cat is adorable of course, and should hopefully liven up the genetics of the cats so far. Say hello Gytha! Gytha: HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! BACK HUMAN! BACKKKK! Yeah, she’s a little... Odd. God knows how Teppic managed to gain her trust, but he’s the only one she ever listens to. This should go well.
Lets check up on Maria. Whatchadoin’ there? Maria: Look! Look! The Car is READY! Just in time for the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang generation! Yes dear, the car is ready. But Chitty Chitty Bang Bang doesn’t look like that. M: Yes, but this ISN’T Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! This is Oliver! Oliver? M: Yes. They wouldn’t let me call it CCBB. Damn copyright infringement. I HATE IT SO MUCH!
... OK. Anyway, lets go find St- WHAT?THE SKUNK! HE’S BACK! Skunk: Chill there baby, I’m here to tell you a little story. I-I suppose that would be ok. S: Well, I’m here to tell you about how Liesl and Teppic met. OOO Goody! S: It all started when...
S:... I, the Skunk, had been on a date with Liesl the night before the dreamy couple met. The night was a success of course, I mean, it’s me. She went by to put some dream date flowers by my bachelor pad, when she met Teppic. He had been on a date with me two days beforehand, and was also giving me some sweet sweet roses.
S: In my absence with no-one to distract them both, they got to talking and went on a date. And it all kicked off from there. I saw this happening, and I figured “It’s cute, I like it.” So I robbed them both and left them in peace. The End. Now, what do with you....
Uh oh, what happened? Everything went dark... OH MAN! HE TOOK MY KIDNEY!
So Fredders, How are you liking this new cat Gytha? Fred: Well, she seems a bit... Odd, but she was telling my about her ancestry and it all makes sense. Her ancestry? F: Yeah. Apparently she’s descended from this really viscous cat... Greeben, or... Breebo or something. *Gulp*
Vontrapp isn’t as pleased however. V: Your momma so fat, the last time she saw 90210 was on the scale. OOOOOO! BURN! G: *HISSSSSS* ATTACK! ATTACK! Anyway, since when did you watch 90210? V: Get with it, darling. G: Grrrrrrrrr
LETS DO THIS THE OLD SCHOOL WAY!
Bring it sister!
SCREECH! Gytha used screech attack! Vontrapp’s defence fell! G: Take that! V: Nooo!
WHAM! Vontrapp used Quick attack! Super Effective! Gytha fainted! V: MWAHAHAHAHA! I think I’ll leave them to their Pokémon battles.
Meanwhile... T: Merlin’s beard! It’s- It’s the Mother ship! But I don’t want to visit my parents! NOOOOO! Teppic’s Mum: You really could have done something with your hair dearie. Teppic’s Dad: Typical layabout. TM: What’s this about a girlfriend?
T: Leave me aloooone! Somebody do something! *whistles* Do what? T: AAAAAAAAAAACKKK!
After much pressure from his mother and the fact that Liesl just told him she was preggers, Teppic proposed. L: Oh Teppic! T: Is it ok? My mother will be so happy! L: Mother in law? Uh Oh. But this does mean that we’ll be having a very quick wedding ceremony before Teppic’s very traditional mother realised that the baby must have been conceived before they were married *gasps*
Awwwwww. I’m so glad I managed to hack her into a wedding dress, despite the fact she’s due to give birth any second.
Oops. I spoke too soon. And I did not at all fake this to get a good photo *shifty eyes* Teppic: It’s not even a good photo, the walls are still down in the background! L: AAAAAAARGH! TEPPPIIIIIC! T: Coming dearest! *sprints* Steven: Aahhh, doesn’t she look beautiful, screaming in pain like that?
This adorable little fella is Caractacus. And he’s an alien! WOO! He’s named after the eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts, from CCBB. He is the creator of Toot Sweets, and also the inventor of the magical car that is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Meanwhile, Steven has just grown up into a spiffy elder! Look how smart he looks! But I’m kinda scared he’s stuck like that
And so has Maria. They’ve both gone a bit... Eccentric in their old age.
So Steven now dresses as a clown. I suppose it’ll be good for the grandkiddies! Smustling eh? Steven: Yep. Plus I’m going to practice my old man chuckle. *chucklechuckle* Snazzy huh?
YOU CAN’T TELL ME YOU DIDN’T SEE IT COMING. V: Well, life’s a habit that’s hard to break y’know. WELL, I SUPPOSE I’D BE ANNOYED TO. IF I HAD TO DIE. V: I’m livid! Geddit? Livid? Like lived? AH. A PUNE, OR A PLAY ON WORDS. V: Uh- sure.
We’ll miss you Vontrapp! *sobs uncontrollably*
Ringo: For certain is death for the born, and certain is birth for the dead. Therefore over the inevitable thou shouldst not grieve. Since when were you so deep? And since when could you talk? R: Well, this house is built on an ancient radioactive burial ground. OOO! R: Yeah, and the guy who owned it put a curse on us. I wonder who else can talk?
Timmy: Don’t mind me, I’m just the bear. Tommy: I’LL SHOVE THOSE PAINTS DOWN YOUR THROAT! Tammy: On a similar note, I must confess I am giving very serious thought... To eating your sims. Run away! Split personality teddy bears are not fun!
Liesl begins to suspect she’s pregnant again...
L: AAACK! Gytha: Look who it is! Vontrapp: HISS L: I though you guys hated eachother! G: Well we did, but we made up once she died. Isn’t that right Von Von? V: HISSSSSSS
The new kitten is called Gene, after Gene Kelly. Gene Kelly was voted 15th Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute, and is most famous for his role in Singin’ in the Rain.
Steven: Hey Gene, wanna play- Gytha: STAY AWAY FROM MY BABY! Gytha will probably end up loving Gene so much that no girl will ever be good enough for her son. Just as Vontrapp did before her. Awwwwww. How sweet. G: KARATE ATTACK!
Little Caractacus just grew up! Awwwwwww! He’s the spitting image of his father! Who, it has now become apparent, is the best father/husband in the world. He cooks, he cleans, he plays with the kids. How does he fine the time?
WHAT?!?! Teppic: Well, I mucked up on a pretty important case at work and they fired me, so I figured I’d stay at home to watch the kids for a while. No grilled cheese for you mister! T: Awww.
Liesl: What happened to my life? Oh shut up and have the kid. L: ARRRREEEEEEEEEEEK!
This little chap is Coggins, named after the owner of the junkyard in CCBB. Pictured is Desmond Llewelyn, the actor who played him in the film, and who played Q in many of the James Bond films. He sadly died in a car crash in 1999. Coggins is looking truly rock and roll here and is passed out on the floor after a night partying.
WIGGLES! NO! COME ALONG WIGGLES. TIME TO GO. Wiggles: Awwww. DO YOU THINK I SOUND LIKE JAMES EARL JONES? W: You do have a certain, Mufasa esk tone yes. Why? JUST SOMETHING A FRIEND SAID. COME ALONG...
Awww. The last of the first generation cats. Brings a tear to your eye. *sniff*
Caractacus just grew up! YAY! And he’s already a music maestro! Steven: Remember Vicky? Ahhh Vicky. Made the best grilled cheese for miles around. Maria: What was that dear? S: Nothing! Nothing!
I’m going to leave it on that terrible ending, because I vow that there will actually be PLOTS from now on! PLOTS! I know, Crazy. So, fresh start. WOO! I wont give away too much, but they involve dear Caractacus. Happy Simming Folks!
