    Familiar Faces Chapter Seventeen Familiar Faces Chapter Seventeen Presentation Transcript

    • Welcome Back to Familiar Faces! It's time for Chapter Seventeen: Good Intentions
    • When last we left the Familiar abode, David Familiar and his bride Titania had just finished exchanging their wedding vows. If you look closely you can see that Titania is wearing the coveted Familiar pearls that were such an issue during David's relationship with his former fiance Juliet Capp. But we aren't here to talk about ancient history we're here to move the legacy into the future. So onward we go!
    • The wedding itself went off without too many hitches, well except for the game crashing several times due to the large number of sims that I tried to cram onto the lot at one time. Eventually it worked and David's grandfather Chaz (who didn't bother getting dressed for the wedding) made toast after toast to the happy couple. The champagne eventually had to be deleted and everyone headed for the bathrooms all at once. For a short time I feared that an apocalypse might be caused due to all the toilet flushing but, we didn't get an apocalypse we just got clogs. C'est La Vie!
    • "No Juliet I'm sorry David's not here at the moment. He's on his honeymoon." *holds phone away from ear* "Well I'm sorry that you had to find out this way, but I don't think you should be surprised. Would you like me to give him a message for you?" "Dear, I really don't think it'd be proper for his mother to say that to him, why don't I just tell him that you called okay?"
    • Home from their honeymoon David and Titania did what most newly wed legacy couples do with their honeymoon max motives. No they didn't play bridge, or MyShuno or even pool. Gosh do I really have to spell it out for you?
    • Well whatever they did Titania very quickly announced that she was expecting their first child. It would be an early winter baby. I guess now's as good a time as any to show Titania's stats Titania Familiar nee Summerdream Libra Family sim 3/6/2/7/7 Red Hair, Green eyes, Elf ears, Lazy slouch LTW is golden anniversary *yawn*
    • David was of course excited by the prospect of impending father hood, almost as excited as he was about finally befriending pack leader Maya or about reaching the top of the criminal track and completing his lifetime want to be a Criminal Mastermind. The prospect of a little minion was almost as interesting as the news that Carlisle Dreamer had been abducted by aliens proving yet again that they were still out there and still recruiting.
    • And so in hopes of fulfilling at least one of his supernatural quests for success, David took to stargazing all night every night. He would stop only to greet any wolf that happened to walk on the lot. Pulling out the cool shades and feeding treats in order to be allowed to belly rub and play razzle with the wolf, there were even a few that eventually let him teach them tricks but none that would nibble on him.
    • In due course Titania went into labor in the basement of the family house, Garden Clubber Armando Cox helped ease her pain with the soothing sounds of Jason Jordan on his Bluegrass Guitar. As the family swarmed down to offer the usual less than helpful hints about spinning faster, Titania blocked them all out and got down to business.
    • And it's a girl! Welcome to the world Emma Familiar! Emma is named for the familiar face of Emma Watson who plays Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies.
    • The family is delighted with their second heiress; the only disappointment in her visible genetics was the lack of recessive hair which had been hoped would pull thru. Emma has green eyes, black hair and the lightest skin tone. We'll have to wait till her toddler tossing to see if her ears grow any longer or more pointy.
    • The day following Emma's birth family mutt Buffy also gave birth. With much less fanfare and excitement than sim births cause, Buffy and her mate Scotty produced a litter of three puppies.
    • "I want to keep this one! I don't know there's just something about his eyes that draw me in and says this is the one. I'm gonna name him Eddie" They're called puppy dog eyes for a reason David, but okay we'll keep Eddie.
    • As a family sim Titania fit right in with her in laws. As long as she didn't expect either of them to look up from their snogging of each other for more than five minutes at any one time there would be no issues. Fortunately you can get a lot of baby care done in under five minutes. There was the small matter of the one sided crush she'd apparently been carrying for father in law Cary since his college days. That was corrected with a slap and a few glasses of strawberry juice passed around the household after she played witness to one of Cass and Cary's frequent extended make out sessions.
    • On the other side of town a different red haired family sim wasn't getting much help at all when it came to caring for her son. "Well Elliot it looks like your Daddy is still refusing to call; I guess that means it's just you and me kiddo. But don't you worry one smidgen we'll do just fine on our own, it's his loss not ours. Now, I put fire alarms in every room so the nanny can't possibly burn down the house while I'm at work, and tonight I'll bring a cake home with me and we'll have a nice quiet birthday party, just you and me. How's that sound?"
    • "Jenn?" Hmm? "What's that tingling I'm feeling? My granddad senses are going crazy at the moment, it's as if there's something going on with one of the kids and I should be there. I called Demi but she said both of the girls are fine and Emma's asleep upstairs with Adonis watching over her." I'm sorry Cary but it's not my place to tell you this time. I would if I could. Don't worry though everything is going to be just fine. You just have to trust me on that okay? "If you're sure then okay I'll trust you, you've never steered me wrong before."
    • Cary's grandparent senses are hardly ever wrong, there was indeed an event happening that he should have been a part of. With a quick toss in the air a shower of confetti fell on young Elliot Capp. His mother was quite exhausted having been up half the night with him the night before and then working all day as a teacher, but she had the energy to fix him up in the mirror and pop a few bottles of smart milk into his inventory just in case he got hungry while she took a cat nap.
    • From the side profile it's quite obvious who Elliot's father is, just in case there were any doubts left. Unlike his half sister Emma, Elliot did inherit David's recessive blond gene along with his nose. Elliot Capp is a Sagittarius 1/9/9/8/4 he has gray eyes, blond hair and the lightest of skin tones.
    • If Cary's grandpa senses were working overtime so were Dwight's uncle senses. The next evening he decided that enough was enough and he'd just stop by Juliet's house himself and find out the truth once and for all.
    • "Dwight! Hi uhh it's good to see you, this isn't really the best time to visit though I was just heading to bed. Hey you look different, paler, what happened to you?"
    • "Well the guys threw me a perma plat party the other night and they invited all my lady friends, not the smartest thing to do of course. And well Countessa Katelyn wasn't happy to find out that she was just one of many and not my one and only if you know what I mean. She wasn't the only one upset about all that either, she was just the one with the best revenge." "*giggle* Oh Dwight, are you sure your friends are really friends? But I don't understand, why didn't you call the matchmaker and get some potions to clear up the infection?" "Uhmm well she's not speaking to me at the moment, I'm going to have to get some off the black market and that's going to take a little while. *shrugs* It's not so bad really it just puts a damper on my plans for a tropical vacation to celebrate being perma plat."
    • "But anyway Jules that's not why I'm here, I think you know why I'm here." "No I don't why don't you tell me? Did David send you?" "I'm not my brother's lackey Jules, you should know that I'm my own person. Anyway, David won't even allow your name to be spoken in his presence. You really hurt him, and he's done his best to pick up the pieces and move on. He just wants to forget you. If things were different I'd be behind him in that all the way, but I think there's something he doesn't know that he should know and that's why I'm here." "Well then you can just leave Dwight because there's nothing you're going to find out here." "MOMMA! MOOOOOM!" "You were saying Jules?"
    • "Dwight this young man with the extremely large lungs and the horrible sense of timing is named Elliot David Capp. I assume you'll recognize the significance of his name. I also assume you'll keep your mouth shut until such a time as I can properly introduce him to his father." "Don't count on that Jules, David has the right to know." "I'm not trying to keep anything from David, David is the one that won't talk to me remember? I'm going to go put him down and then we can talk about it." "Let me do it please? I'm a pro at it I promise, I've had lots of practice with Demi's girls."
    • "So you're my nephew huh? Welp I'm your Uncle Dwight. I don't think I have any other nephew's at the moment, you're the first one, maybe the only one. That makes you special, got that?" "Special?" "Yep special that's you! Now I'd better get you in bed before your Mom gets mad at both of us."
    • "Night Night Elliot sleep tight" "Night Dwight"
    • "So I'll give you about five minutes to tell me why I shouldn't just walk over to David's after I leave here and tell him all about Mr. Capp in there." "Do you really think he'd believe you if you told him? And if he did believe you do you think he'd believe I didn't get pregnant on purpose just to trap him or to somehow force his hand?" "Well didn't you?"
    • "Do you really think that little of me Dwight? I thought we were friends, I guess I was wrong." "I don't know what to think about you Jules. At times, I actually do like you and I do consider you a friend or at least I did at one point. But I also think you're a bit of a self centered conniving witch!" "Oh that's wonderful, coming from you Mr. Love and Leave em Romance sim." "I never accepted someone's proposal and then cheated on them with one of their best friends. Yes I'm a romance sim, yes I've love many women and I've woohoo'd even more; there are worst things I could do. I don't lie about my feelings or my intentions, that's your game."
    • "And I supposed you think your brother's a saint?" "Far from it, I think he's all too human, which is why you could hurt him as badly as you did. He's married and he's happy but I don't think he'll ever open his heart to Titania as far as he did to you. You stole something from him that can't be replaced, his trust. He deserves to know he has a son, that Emma has a brother."
    • "I won't let him try to steal my son as payback, and that's what he'd try to do. Elliot's mine, I didn't plan on him, but he was very much wanted. He's the only person I've ever had in my life that was completely mine. David was never mine, he was THE HEIR, that was the most important thing to him, he wanted to marry me not because of me but because it was expected." "He loved you Jules." "No he loved the thought of me, he loved what I stood for, he didn't love me, he barely knew me. I don't see how Titania can stand to play second fiddle to a telescope. I never would have and I tried to tell him that, over and over again, but he never heard me. When he decides to finally listen I'll tell him about Elliot myself, until that happens I don't want anyone else to tell him. If anyone tries Elliot and I will be out of this town faster than you can say legacy heir. And you can make bet on that Dwight, so think long and hard before you go running to big brother this time."
    • "Now I think you should leave." "Wait Jules, it goes against everything I believe but I'll hold off telling David for now. But I want your promise that you'll let me see my nephew and be a part of his life. I also want you to let me tell Mom and Dad, they deserve to know, they won't be around forever you know." "If you want to see Elliot that's fine, I won't stop you in fact I'll encourage it. But I don't want you telling your folks yet, or anyone else. I'll have to think about that awhile, your parents never liked me, you know." "Think about the advantages they could give him that you can't." "They can't love him more than I do, and that's the only advantage that matters."
    • The next day at the legacy household there was a small private party to celebrate Emma's toddler tossing. Just the immediate family was there. Titania got home from work in time to do the honors, but David wasn't able to participate due to his work schedule.
    • She's defiantly your granddaughter Cary, I'd recognize that nose anywhere. In addition to her grandfather's nose Emma got her mother's ears *squeee!* She's a Taurus which makes her the first non Sag heir/ess since Abe At 5/6/2/8/7 she's unique for a Familiar as in she's nice, she's also lazy very lazy but Gramps will get to work on encouraging that as soon as possible I'm sure.
    • Despite Juliet's claims Titania at least doesn't feel one bit slighted by David's obsession with the supernatural. While not as prone to stalking as Cary and Cass are David and Titania are still very affectionate with each other.
    • Their affection was evident yet again when Titania announced the soon to be arrival of number two. But before that could happen it was time for the family to celebrate the winter holidays.
    • We'd been waiting all winter for the first snow fall to happen and finally on the last day of winter it snowed hard enough to cover the ground completely There would be enough snow for snow men and snow angles and snow ball fights!
    • Decorations were pulled out of storage and packages started to appear under the tree with cryptic tags attached to let it be known which ones should go to whom.
    • Emma's first present of the day was a full grown doggy all set and ready to be cuddled and loved on. Eddie had grown into an interesting mix of his parents. He's got the shaggy coat and bushy eyebrows from his father and his mother's cream and tan coloring.
    • Not to be outdone by a pooch, David and Titania had presents for all their children. A new dollhouse was put in the girls bedroom for Emma, Puck was given his own MP3 player and a hand held game that he'd been hinting about.
    • And Bottom received a selection of toys crafted especially for you by Grandpa Cary.
    • Bottom's best present of the day though came a bit later when Demi and Chay brought eldest daughter Delphine by to help celebrate the day. The two girls took one look at each other and instantly knew they'd found their forever best friend. Delphine gave Bottom lesson's in being a Familiar, otherwise known as the finer points of chess cheating.
    • In addition to the family member's that showed up to help celebrate the holidays the Familiars also had a visit from non other than Old Saint Nick himself. Santa hohoho'd a lot and then left a remote control car by the tree,
    • Afterward he excused himself to take care of that persistent bladder issue that EA inflicted on him, that's never been corrected. We'll assume that he enjoyed himself despite his problems since he hohohoho'd all the time he was at the potty, and he did leave Adonis the present of a clogged toilet to unclog, Adonis was unimpressed.
    • Dwight didn't know what he should do with the knowledge he'd acquired from Juliet. He'd made a promise to her that he wouldn't tell David about Elliot, but he hadn't promised not to talk to his brother about Juliet. In the past his attempts to broach the subject of Jules with David had not gone well. After everyone else was in bed, the decorations stored away again for another year and the snow almost gone for the winter, Dwight thought he'd try again.
    • He didn't get very far, David wasn't in the mood to have his holiday's ruined by the mention of his ex. "Don't you think it's about time you put Juliet behind you David? If you get upset every time someone mentions her name you aren't as over her as you'd like everyone to believe."
    • "So now you're giving me advice on relationships Dwight? Have you ever actually had a relationship? With anything besides the wishing well that is?" "Just because I've never made a full commitment doesn't mean I haven't had any lasting relationships. I've dated some of the women I see for better than six years and I'm still friends with at least half of the women I've been involved with." "And the other half vamps you or refuses to sell you cures. Speaking of vamping, hello knowledge sim here why won't you bite me? Huh? Don't want to share do you? Guess what neither do I that's why I dumped Juliet, remember?"
    • "Yeah I remember you dumped her and then moped around here for months until you rebounded onto Titania, that's not healthy dude. You need to talk things over with Juliet and get yourself some closure. Until you do that you're just going to have this hanging over you and your family. You're not just hurting yourself by behaving this way, you're hurting your wife and your kids as well." "What do you want me to do Dwight, why are you so interested in my love life? I'm happy with Titania and Emma and the promise of a new baby. What more do I need to do to prove to you that I'm over Juliet? Are you afraid that someday I'll run into Juliet and flip for her again, leave my wife and kids that I love, for a little tramp like Jules? Do you think I'm that shallow or that I'm that callous?"
    • "What makes you think Juliet would want you back? She has a new man in her life who means more to her than I think you ever did, believe me she doesn't want you back." "Who? You?!? Is that what this is all about? You were one of the few that didn't get a piece of her back in college, wondering what you missed out on? You want my permission add another notch? I don't care what she does, the only reason I care about what you do is that I wouldn't want you getting hurt by thinking she cares about you or anything." "I'm thinking of you bro, I don't want anything to haunt you in the future. I don't want there to be any old hurts popping up somewhere down the road messing with the life you and Titania have built. But I've tried, I've failed, I'm done. Do what you want, you always have."
    • "Am I hurting you by not getting closure with my old girlfriend? I think your Uncle Dwight's full of it." "Full of it!" "Shh don't let your mother hear you say that she'll kill me." "Kill!" "Blood thirsty little minion aren't you? Well it's time for all good minion's to be in bed so that Daddy can go shake down some politico's" "Shake em down!"
    • "You have one new message" "Hi David, it's Jules. Just wanted to call and wish you happy holidays, hope everything going well for you. I'd really like to talk to you sometime, I have something to tell you that I think you should know. Call me sometime so we can talk or better yet stop by. Just in case you've lost my number or thrown it away, it's 867-5309.
    • "Yeah Hi Juliet, it's David I hope you're doing well, I'm doing great myself. Listen Juliet don't call here again, I thought you'd have gotten the message the first hundred times I didn't call you back. Apparently you didn't, so I'll deliver it personally. Don't call, don't write, I won't answer. I've moved on, I'm married and I'm happy. I hear you have a new man in your life, I'm happy for you, but I don't want to hear about him and I don't want to meet him. I won't be talking to you later, bye." *beep*
    • "Bunnah goes Bam!" Emma is the most destructive child I've seen in awhile. Seven nice points mean nothing, the bunny gets bashed, the logic toy is yelled at, bottles get thrown and Adonis likes to point out the dent in his finger appendage where he swears she bit him.
    • "There it goes again, did you feel that?" "I felt something that's for sure. Say, is that a tootsie roll in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" "I'm always happy to see you but that's wasn't what I was talking about."
    • "Come on sweetie, you can do it, almost there. Once we get you up and mobile you'll be ready for your party tonight." "Party!" "Yep that's right we're gonna have a party for you!"
    • It was a small party just Juliet, Uncle Dwight, Juliet's "friend" Officer McAuley and neighbor Luke Warm who never got out of the hot tub for the proceedings So it was just a small cheering section that blew their horns and twirled the noise makers while Elliot wiggled his way out of toddler hood into childhood.
    • "Okay Elliot, are you ready? Nothing hard about it, just lean over and blow *pfft* just like we've practiced okay?" "Okay" "Hold up in there, don't start without us!" "What the?"
    • There's no stopping a birthday wiggle once it begins, not that either Cary or Cass really wanted to prevent the wiggle, they just wanted to make it into the kitchen in time to see their grandson do his dance. "I told you the tingling was coming from in here Cass. My grandpa senses rarely fail on me." "Of course you were right dear, but what I want to know is how our parenting senses failed to let us know Dwight was trying to hide something this big from us."
    • "He wasn't hiding it from you Mr. and Mrs. Familiar, I asked him to not say anything to either of you yet. I wanted to give David a little while longer to get over himself and contact me. I didn't think it would be fair for him to be the last to know about his son." "Well you don't need to worry about that anymore, he'll be hearing a thing or two from me on this subject once we get home."
    • "No! It's my right to tell David about Elliot, I'm sorry but it's not your place to do so. I've tried to tell him and so far he's refused to listen. That's his choice. It's his loss, we don't need him." "Then why haven't you just told him, if you were to tell him there was a child I can assure you he'd be here in a minute." "And he'd try to make Elliot a weapon in his battle with me, I won't allow that. David has to get over his issues with me before I'll let him anywhere near MY son. Right now Elliot is better off with no father than with a father who's too blind to see past his anger. I want you both to understand that and to agree that it's my responsibility and my right to tell David before you go in there and met Elliot, if you don't I'll have to ask Robert to escort you both home. If that happens Elliot and I will be gone by morning." "You'd keep us from our grandchild?"
    • "Who are you? Did you know this is my birthday?" "Yes sir, I think we got that birthday part figured out. And well I'm your grandpa and the pretty lady behind you is your grandma." "You are? I didn't know I had a grandpa, what's a grandpa?" "Well then we're even cause I didn't know I had a grandson until a few minutes ago. And well grandpa's are great things to have, they like to fish and they almost always have candy in their pockets to give to grandchildren that ask nicely, sometimes they have dollars in their pockets as well."
    • "Grandma's like to bake cookies and build snowmen and make hot cocoa in the winter. And in the summer we like to catch firefly's and eat ice cream cones at the beach does that sound fun to you?" "That sounds super!" "I'm glad it sounds good to you too Elliot, I hope that we'll have lots of time to do all those things in the coming year." "Me too!"
    • "We'll give you a little more time to try this your way Juliet, but we want to spend time with our grandson. We want to spend time with all our grandchildren. We just bought a vacation house and we're planning to take all of the kids there this summer, just Cass and I and the kids. We'd like to include Elliot, I think it'd be good for him to spend time with his family. All of his family." "And what's in it for me? I'm sure you have a bribe in your pocket somewhere." "Actually I have a tootsie roll in my pocket, but if your son's happiness has a price tag do tell, I'm sure we can make some type of arrangement." "I'll think about it."
    • "Oh Dear Wright not again!" What's up Adonis? "What, what, you mean I'm actually getting face time? Are you catching my best side? Is my eye on straight?" Adonis! "Oh yes of course, Ms Titania is apparently having her baby, right now."
    • And indeed she was! Welcome to the World Elle Familiar! Elle has green eyes, blond hair (go go recessive genes!) and the lightest skin tone. Elle is named for the familiar face of super model / actress Elle MacPherson.
    • "Yes another daughter! And this one has blond hair, how awesome is that. Guess what Mom and Dad you're grandparents again isn't that great, four beautiful granddaughter's to spoil." *mumbling and a handsome grandson as well* "What?"
    • "Nothing dear, I'm just getting dotty in my old age I'm sure."
    • Goodnight Elle, we'll see you and the rest of the Familiars very soon. Until then, Thank for you for reading! and Happy Simming! A general shout out and thank you to all the wonderful cc creators that help my sims and their houses look so good. Thank you for your time and your efforts!
