Welcome back to The Clark Legacy! I hope that you enjoy
this chapter; it is a little short, but it was still fun to play.
Thanks for reading and enjoy!! :)
Charlie, Trevor's only alien son, won the heir poll for the Clark
legacy! He is a very handsome young man with a fortune
aspiration. He might also have a little popularity aspiration in
him; he's already meeting and greeting his fellow dormies and
he hasn't even stepped inside yet!
After deciding on the dorm room closest to the front door and
across from the living room, Charlie sets up his paint easel
and begins skilling. He already has the want to sell a
masterpiece! He definitely is a fortune sim.
Charlie also wanted to purchase a sewing table. Although this
want was a little questionable and girly, I allowed him to make
the purchase. He loves sewing projects, which right now
usually come out lopsided and tattered, but soon he'll be
sewing up clothes that look wonderful!
On the very first night in the dorms, Charlie already gets a
wild college experience! The cook, hired because of her
abilities to make tasty mac 'n' cheese, started a fire! Looks
like the college needs to hire a new cook who knows what
Charlie's been packing on the pounds from all the mac 'n'
cheese, and has gained what is commonly known as “the
freshman fifteen”. He wants to get back into shape and takes
up jump roping in the hallways every morning. It is slowly, but
surely, working to help Charlie lose some weight.
It seems like all Charlie is doing lately is studying, skilling or
working on his class assignments. He hasn't made very many
friends or gone out to the local hot spots.
So I tear Charlie away from his pen and papers to meet with
some of the dormies. He met a really upbeat and funny
cheerleader named Laci Couderc. The two of them got along
great and immediately shared a few jokes.
Charlie also found out that the dorms held more than just
friendly cheerleaders. There were a few dormies living there
that felt the need to take a shower was so last season.
Charlie ended up making a few new friends over the next few
days, and tried desperately to stay away from those who
didn't shower. Every night Charlie liked to sit down at his
sewing table and make a new project. They were getting
better and better each time he tried. Soon he had a gold
Even with all his new friends Charlie is still the same studious
man he was ever since he was a child. I guess all the friends
in the world won't tear this man away from his books!
Of course with all of his studying, Charlie was earning stellar
grades. He decided to take some time away, skip a class, and
invite over his parents. Kaylynn was ecstatic that Charlie was
doing so well in school and chatted his ear off about wearing
clean undies and bathing correctly.
His father, Trevor, on the other hand, had more important
things to talk about. He wanted to know all about the girls in
the dorm. Charlie tried to sway the topic to something
different, but his dear old dad insisted on knowing if Charlie
had a girlfriend yet. As a family sim, Trevor wanted to make
sure Charlie was thinking about carrying on the family name.
Yet another dorm member that makes it a daily event to skip
out on bathing. . .
Charlie had promised his father to take dating more seriously.
So he invited the pretty, peppy cheerleader Laci on a date to
Red's Famous 50's Diner. It started out a little awkward by
taking a few photos in the photobooth, but things soon got a
little more fun thanks to Laci. . .
She was the typical upbeat cheerleader; always happy and
jumping around. She really did bring out the playful side in
Charlie. She even managed to teach him the school cheer in
no time at all! Charlie was rather enjoying himself with Laci
and couldn't help but look forward to their next date.
The night was quickly approaching and Charlie had to be
back at the dorms to catch some shut eye before his next
final exam. He and Laci sat down to enjoy some dinner
together before they departed.
Laci was no cheap date! She ordered one of the most
expensive items on the menu – salmon! Charlie didn't mind
paying for the overpriced fish though. He was thoroughly
enjoying Laci's presence during their first date. Dinner was
fabulous and they even caressed hands while waiting on the
Of course Laci brought more of her personality into the date
before saying goodnight. She asked Charlie to dance with her
to the beat that the jukebox was belting out. The new couple
boogied on the dance floor for more than an hour before
sharing a sweet kiss goodnight :)
Peppy Laci snuck up to the front door of Charlie's dorm and
left an expensive thank you present! I had expected some
roses, not a brand new piano. Looks like this girl really paid
attention and tuned into the fact that Charlie was really into
Arts & Crafts. She must be a keeper ;)
The next morning Charlie was trying to sleep in, but couldn't
help fight the feeling that someone was staring at him. And he
was right, another stinky dormie was staring at his locked
door. When Charlie left for his sophomore final exam, he
decided it was time to leave the smelly friends behind and
rent his own home for the rest of his college years.
After earning a grant for acing his final exam, Charlie finally
had enough money to move out of the dorms at the beginning
of his Junior year. So far Charlie was rather enjoying his new
privacy and had some time to rock out on his piano without
smelly dormies coming around to bother him.
It didn't take long before Charlie found out that the dorm life
wouldn't be totally left behind. The school mascots still
followed him to show him the school cheer in his new house.
School mascots were a lot better than smelly sims though.
Charlie welcomed Alicia the Cow and Marcel the Llama into
his home to cheer, dance and play the piano. He quickly
befriended them and had fun when they came around.
Charlie soon found out that it was nice to have his own home
to invite his girlfriend over to. The privacy was great! On rainy
days they spent their time making out and dancing indoors
without anyone there to interrupt
And on days that the sun was shining, Laci always wanted to
go out on dates. Of course the very first thing they do on
every night out on the town is take some pictures in the photo
booth This time they took a few romantic, lovey-dovey
pictures to hang in Charlie's new home.
The couple got lost in the maze at Lost In Love Hedge Maze.
They didn't mind resting on the bench for a few kisses
though. And this is the time that the Charlie and Laci fell in
One of Charlie's wants on the date was to take Laci back to
his home. She agreed and the two love birds celebrated
falling in love. Of course they ended with a dream date.
Charlie wanted to make something for his new love that
would show how much he loved her. After all, his house was
filled with roses and bouquets that Laci had given him after
dates. It was time for him to give something to her – he began
working on a teddy bear for her. :)
Charlie invited Laci over the next evening for dinner so that
he could present his gift for her. It had only taken him a few
hours to make and it wasn't very expensive, but Charlie was
sure she'd love it!
Halfway through dinner Charlie had a better idea. They were
in love, they both wanted engagement. So why not!? Charlie
popped the question while they were eating spaghetti and
Laci immediately grabbed the small black box.
She put on the ring and threw the box over her shoulder into
the potted plant. Laci admired her new engagement ring and
excitedly accepted Charlie's offer. Both of their aspirations
went sky high when she said yes :)
It was the night before Charlie's final senior exam so he
decided to throw a party! He invited his professors (one of
which brought Poppy Hanson, the plant sim) and one of his
best friends April Andersen, who is quietly studying on the
Kaylynn Clark, Charlie's mother, was also on the guest list.
She heartily helped herself to the juice keg outside next to the
pool and spent most of the evening there. I guess she's
dealing with a few problems with her baby boy growing up ;)
While all of the guests were enjoying themselves on the piano
upstairs (and Kaylynn enjoying more juice) Charlie and Laci
spent a few moments kissing and hugging each other.
Charlie knew he could ace this last exam with one arm tied
behind his back, but he wanted to cram in a few last minute
study assignments just to be safe. After two writing
assignments Charlie sped off to class to complete his exam.
Charlie is now a graduated man! He is no longer a student at
La Fiesta Tech, but a grown man ready to start his life with his
Charlie strolled back toward the house . . .
But stopped when he came to the mailbox to find that Laci
had left a “congrats/i love you” letter for him. Charlie smiled
as he read the letter then called a cab and headed back
home to start his life with Laci back in Clarksville.
Thank you all for reading! I hope that you enjoyed
this short chapter about Charlie's college life.

sims Charlie and Laci and how they begin their
