The Squeaky Clean Legacy, chapter 18.1: I Will Be Good, Part 1Presentation Transcript
S"ll working hard on the family history, Ly7on?
“In point of fact, I’ve done.”
“Perhaps not precisely done. But I have completed all my major
research, and I have been able to resolve some interes"ng ques"ons
concerning our ancestress‐‐
“She appears to have been somewhat more inten8onal and
deliberate than I had previously thought.
Had I men8oned that she had been unjustly accused of
witchcra@ in her youth? I had not? Perhaps this was owing to
her friendship and fondness for cats.”
“Or perhaps because of a reputa8on as an industrious, virtuous,
studious. . .
‐‐ah. Here is the historic record: We have rid the village of yon
obnoxious mayden, henceforth shamed with the name of
Goodytwoshoes. A pox of her for learning the tendre youth
“And more importantly, she le@ a wriIen record of her
“Whereas opportunities for women are limited, my heir from
henceforth shall be an heirefs.”
“Whereas virtue tendeth to human felicity, chief among thefe the
steadfaft and loyal love of family and friends, my heirefs shall profefs
“Whereas shee is the queen among flowers, my heirefs shall be named
And for all pofsterity, ye motto of all who calleth themfelves my
descendants fhall bee—”
“I will be goode.”
“And fo they fhall.
Alfoe, they fhall keep felines. This is very important.”
“I must admit it is somewhat melancholy to be so close to
comple"on aHer such a long "me, but aHer all, I must ﬁnish the
ﬁnal draH and see it through the press.”
“And then I shall a7empt to accustom myself to indolence.”
When we last leH the family, Genera"on Nine heiress Elaine
Goodytwoshoes had just married Ian Legacina‐‐
‐‐to everyone’s sa"sfac"on, especially hers.
Elaine was also expec"ng their ﬁrst child. But would this prove
to be the long‐awaited 10th genera"on heiress?
And what, if anything, was Max wai"ng for?
In the mean"me, there were construc"ve things that needed to
be done, such as pain"ng genera"onal portraits–
And wri"ng a best‐selling roman"c novel, a task to which Elaine
is uniquely suited.
Luckily, gooey romance never goes out of style.
There are long‐established tasks for Legacy husbands as well, and Ian set
to work earning his gold toy making badge–with li7le complaint by him,
or anyone else, as long as he could wear shirtless pajamas.
Elaine’s plan to become a Professional Party Guest had to be put on
As for Penelope and Dinadan, there wasn’t much to do except for ﬁshing.
Or playing with and training cats, like Cappucino.
Finally, everyone’s pa"ence was rewarded.
“It’s a baby!”
“It’s a baby!”
“Yay! It’s a baby!”
Elaine: Aw, look at my sweet li7le cherub. Are you Mother’s sweet
Yeah, but what KIND is it? I don’t care how cherubic the baby is. I just
want to know its gender.
Yep, Elaine and Ian had a beau"ful li7le girl on the ﬁrst try.
They named her Rowena.
Just kidding. Obviously not.
Elaine: She would have been beau"ful even if she had been a
I’m glad you feel that way, because you can try for another right
Remember, I promised her father Dinadan he could have six
grandchildren, so I had to let Palomides and Stacey get married.
There isn’t a lot of room in their backyard. Gawaine wasn’t even the ﬁrst
in the gate, but somehow, he slipped to the front of the line.
Gawaine: Hold it. You’re not properly married unless I supervise.
Gawaine: Okay, go ahead.
Palomides: Thank you.
Gawaine: You’re welcome.
Even their other brother, Parsifal, and the father of the groom were out
on the curb.
Elaine and Ian seemed much more interested in each other.
Cake and celebra"on followed.
For everyone except the an"social, who clearly do not know how to
behave at weddings.
This is Molly, the daughter of Ulysses and Doc Nerd. She gets it from
both parents, alas.
Dinadan: I don’t want to be a nosy old father‐in‐law, but I do hope you’ll
be star"ng a family. Will you be star"ng a family any"me soon?
I think that’s a yes.
I think that is indeed a yes.
In fact, not just a baby, but twin girls. Why couldn’t I have twin girls
when I needed them? This is Brangienne.
And this is Iseult. I’m thrilled to get a li7le gene"c variety.
And Palomides‐‐ he’s just glad to have babies. He’s a Family Sim with the
LTW to send three children to college, so he might as well get started
Another set of Family Sims who can’t wait to get started—Lenore and
Of course, the father of the bride, Stanley Legacy of the Victorian
Legacy, , was invited.
Carmilla: As if anyone has to get married.
Actually, I suspect Stanley has always felt a bit uneasy about not being
married to the mother of his child, but aHer all, he’s had plenty and he
has married very few of them.
Zane appears to be a bit worried about the wedding, but then he worries
about everything. There’s nothing really to worry about.
They even have both sets of parents there.
Weddings in Leonore’s family are always candlelit and at night. It’s been
done this way for genera"ons, to accommodate the vampire members of
That’s true even though the original vampire in the family isn’t a vampire
anymore. There is always one.
Lenore: Are you happy, Zane? Zane? Honey?
Zane: Married! We’re gedng married!
Lenore: Yes, we’re gedng married.
Znae: OMG! Married! We’re gedng married!
Lenore: You need to let me put this ring on your ﬁnger, swee"e. Focus.
Gilbert: Romance, it is magniﬁque, n’est‐ce pas?
Gilbert: As is the cake. He is my masterpiece.
Cassidy: Yay for Zane and Lenore and the cake!
Suppor"ve spouses, how we love them.
I’m not sure that Zane and Lenore will even no"ce the cake. I hope he’s not too
Zane: This is the happiest day of my en"re life.
Lenore: I can’t promise you’ll always be happy, Zane. But I promise I will
always do everything in my power to help you be happy.
And Lenore is a fairly powerful woman. I’d take that seriously.
Count Whoopie: Yay! I don’t have to do evening weddings! Yay
Max: What, precisely, are you doing here?
SJ: Applauding. What does it look like? What are you doing here?
Max: I am a friend of the bride’s family.
SJ: Well, I AM the groom’s family. He just doesn’t know it. Have you got
a problem with that?
Max: Not par"cularly.
SJ: Good. Now quit drawing a7en"on to me. I’m trying to be
Zane: Yeah. Make sure you tell Dad so. It’ll make him really happy.
SJ: Meh, the best way to compliment a cake is to eat it.
