Welcome, everyone, to the decidely non-canonical and very, er, jolly, Absolutely Crazy Christmas Special! 'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house...
"All of the Simselves were decidedly cheesed off with the creator's choice of holiday attire." Oh, come on. It's festive! Have you no holiday spirit? "It's so... euuurgh." Spoilsport. I'm sure the others don't disapprove.
"Wrong. Why do we have to wear these?" "Don't complain, Lark. This gown is quite fetching. I also happen to like the matching bonnet." "Um, Cee, that's not a bonnet. It's a granny cap." "Nevertheless..." Ladies, can we stop dissing the outfits already? Seriously. It's a Christmas Special. Can we at least TRY to be cheerful? "Sorry, Fire."
Later that evening... "Is this the right address, Fire? It's a little different to how it looked in the last few chapters." Yeah, I gave it a remodel. Told the girls it was their Christmas present. Hee hee. "Well, here come the real presents!" Great. You first, Remus.
Ding-dong! "Lucy, could you get that?" "All right, all right. *grumblegrumble* Who could be calling this late on Christmas Eve?"
"Lucy!" "REMUS!" Remus was the generation R heir in Lucy's Obsession Legacy. Her Simself married him, obviously.
"Ohhhh, it's so good to see you!" "Uff! Have you been getting into the holiday cookies?" "Remus!" "Joking, joking."
Ding-dong! Your turn, Cee. "Who is it? Is it Goopy-Will?" Er. No. This one's a bit of a surprise.
"Jeremy!" "Cee! Nice hat." Jeremy is the Simself of Cee's real life husband. I asked Cee to upload him especially for this special. Thanks again, Cee!
Ding-dong! "Guess that's for m-" "Hello, Lark."
"Gaara!" "Mmmph!" Gaara is Lark's fiance in her asylum challenge.
Why so glum, Fire? "I don't have a significant other for you to give me for Christmas, in real life or the Sim world. I'm gonna have a lonely Christmas." Ding-dong! Or not. Go answer the door.
"Hello, Fire." "...Spike? From Buffy? He's my Christmas present?" Yeah, any objections?
Ahh, the chaos that is Christmas dinner. "Lark, could you pass the salt?" "Hey, who ate all the cranberry sauce?" "Is there cake? Please tell me there's cake." "Someone better take the cookies out of the oven soon!" " Jingle bells, jingle bells... " "Ugh, someone please stop her from finishing that song!" "Really. Is there going to be cake?" "The cookies are burning!" "C'mon, pull the cracker with me!" Um, let's go see how Christmas is going for the Chandlers, shall we?
You guys seem to be enjoying the weather. "Yeah. We were worried you'd do the Aussie thing and make us have Christmas in Summer." I was tempted. "Ooof! He got me!" "Heh heh. Just 'cause you're my mum, I aimed below your head." Lovely.
"Yay! Snowman!" "Ooh, the cold's a bit much for my old bones." "Can we give him a pitchfork and horns?" "Um. No. I've got you a nice hat and a carrot, see?" "Awww." Face it. You're too nice to make an evil snowman.
Even Tempe's let her hair down and having a bit of fun. "It's Christmas! It may be overtly materialistic and commercial, but it's a time for family!" *headdesk*
"This is for you, ugly big brother - a TV for your room in college." "Aww thanks, stupid little sister. By the way, you ARE a clone of me, and thus calling me ugly is calling your-" "Shut up and bask in the family-ness already!" "Okay, okay. Basking. You want your present or what?"
"You got me a present?" "Yeah. It's a robotics bench, since you're such a techno-geek. Well, a geek in general. Anyways, you have to make me a Servo." "Dream on, pug nose." She has a point. The nose looks less bad on the girls.
"Aww, let's bask, shall we?" "Yeah." "..." "NOOGIE TIME!" "Ow ow ow ow! I hate you!" "I love you too, shorty."
"Mum, what are those two doing in there?" "Making a lot of noise. IF YOU TWO MAKE A MESS YOU HAVE TO CLEAN IT UP YOURSELVES!" "Hee hee." "Happy Christmas, Rin Rin." "A bunny-bear! Just what I asked for! Now I can drive people crazy with my ventriloquism act!" "Or you could give tea parties?" "Bor-ring."
"This is for you, Bella. I know how much you like cooking, so I bought you a nectar bar to store all your cooking nectars in." "Yes. Cooking nectars. Heh heh. Thanks, mum." You better not drink too much of that stuff, Bella.
"Grandma, this is from all of us kids. You say that we don't spend enough time as a family, so..." "Myshuno? Wow! I've heard that's a lot of fun!" You've been reading the Victorian Legacy* haven't you? "Maybe a bit." *The Victorian Legacy is a great themed legacy by Dicreasy. Go read it if you haven't.
Bella. Please tell me that's your first drink. "Um. Thish ish my firsht drink." Liar. "That'sh what you told me to shay!" How many have you had? "Only about sheven. Or wash it eight?" Never mind.
"Family photo! This'll be one for the album." "Shay cheeshe, everyone!" "Cheese!" "Cheese!" "Camembert!" "Tempe! Don't be so nerdy!' I love the Chandlers.
Merry Christmas, from me, the Simselves, and the Legacy family! "Have a great Christmas! Don't eat too much turkey!" "Or pudding!" "But that's the best bit!"
