  • A Very Italian Selfacy - Chapter One

    1. 1. A Very Italian Selfacy<br />Chapter 1:<br />A very empty lot and a very blank title slide.<br />
    2. 2. Hello and welcome to A Very Italian Selfacy – an alphabet legacy that breaks all the rules!Here’s rule break number one, a founding couple. Yes, COUPLE.<br />This here happens to be my simself, Alessandra (Alii) Costello, and her husband, my real life boyfriend Stu.<br />She’s a Libra, 2/7/2/5/9<br />Family sim LTW raise 20 puppies or kittens (lol no, but SO like me)<br />Naturally blonde, green eyes and lightest skintone.<br />He’s a Gemini, 4/7/7/4/3<br />Family sim LTW become minister of education (maybe)<br />Brown hair, light blue eyes and lightest skintone.<br />Hooray for variety!<br />
    3. 3. And this is their, um...thing.<br />It’s not much but I bought them the second largest empty plot so they can have a big big mansion one day :D<br />Well, maybe not them because they’ll most likely be dead, but their descendants can enjoy it; and they’ll be part of them, right?<br />Also, yay for cheap custom stuff! I can’t stand it when my sims houses don’t look like they jumped out of an IKEA cataloge, God only knows why I chose to do a legacy.<br />Moving on!<br />
    4. 4. So they settled in and had their first breakfast of many.<br />I like to think this speech bubble means: “Don’t worry Alii, I still love you even though you’ve made me into a pixelated man and forced me to live in a box with no floor.”<br />Which is good, ‘cause he’s going to have to get used to it.<br />
    5. 5. Straight away Stu was scouring the paper for a job so he could maybe someday actually install a floor.<br />No education career track, but there was gamer which suits the real life Stu to a T and so he took it.<br />I was going to say something here about the pie chart being upside down and Stu being stupid ‘cause that’s not how to read the paper.<br />Then I realised the paper is folded in half and it all makes sense.<br />Who’s stupid NOW? ¬¬<br />
    6. 6. And Alii was sent straight to the garden.<br />I figured there was no point in geting her a job if she’s just going to be a baby machine so she can sell garden produce instead.<br />Good thinking Batman.<br />:D<br />
    7. 7. So, our larrrrvelyBluewater Village neighbours decided to come welcome us. How nice!<br />Except for the fact that I’ve never liked the Jaquets, and the first thing they did was gossip about me.<br />I am not impressed.<br />They would do well to remember that I CAN use BoolProp on their lot, as well as instrunments of torture.<br />
    8. 8. They day pretty much consisted of this;<br />Gilbert being a general fool and trying to talk to everyone<br />And Malcolm desperately trying to forget that he was among commoners, although I don’t think drinking an instant meal really helped with that.<br />What fun stuff, not.<br />
    9. 9. Although I think we all know the night was filled with fun stuff.<br />And lullabies. :D<br />
    10. 10. First thing in the morning I sent Alii off to tend to her plants so we can have lots of nice money for when the baby arrives, as it is they only have about 100 simoleans; nowhere near enough.<br />And of course, being the sloppy outgoing Libra she is she didn’t bother to get changed before venturing into the garden.<br />You go girl, give those gossipers more ammunition!<br />I’ve never been so proud.<br />
    11. 11. Of course Stu, being a big manly man, had to go off to his job as a n00b in the dirtiest car known to simkind.<br />He’s very good at being a noob in real life though, so no worries for his simself really.<br />Is it just me or does anyone else wonder why there’s a handprint on that car?<br />Been some kinky goings on mebbeh?<br />
    12. 12. And our big manly man of a noob returned home with a promotion and a bonus.<br />Yaaaaay!<br />That pretty much set the course for the next few days.<br />Here’s how it went down:<br />
    13. 13. Alii popped.<br />
    14. 14. Stu got promoted.<br />
    15. 15. Alii popped, seemingly without moving for 24 hours and yet magically changing clothes.<br />Oh the mysteries of life.<br />
    16. 16. They built a passable nursery with Stu’s promotion money.<br />
    17. 17. And Alii went into labour, once again without even moving.<br />She must be dying for a wee.<br />
    18. 18. Cue lots of drama and “OhhOhhhAhhhh!”’s<br />
    19. 19. Did I ever mention that The Sims has put me off kids entirely?<br />Look at her.<br />LOOK AT HER!<br />That does not look fun, even in a game.<br />I think I’ll grow my babies in a tube or something, much better idea than labour.<br />But anyway...<br />
    20. 20. Into the world came Arianna Costello!<br />A little girl with exactly her dads colouring: lightest skintone, brown hair and light blue eyes.<br />The name Arianna is a variant of Ariadne (Greek) and means “most holy’ silver”.<br />Quite fitting seeing as her father’s surname was Dos-Anjos, Portuguese for “of the angels”.<br />
    21. 21. Speaking of her father, he was sent to skilling to get more promotions and more money.<br />Because who doesn’t love money?<br />And I also decided with Arianna’s birth that each generation will have at least 3 babies and first born male inherits.<br />Just for giggles.<br />So we need us some more moolah for the extensions to the box that will be necessary.<br />
    22. 22. Stu also took over the gardening for reasons that will become apparent in the next slide.<br />Both he and Alii have silver gardening badges but I always miss the doodads. It is a constant source of annoyance to me.<br />
    23. 23. Blue neck sick and face-toilet glitching can only mean one thing!<br />Alii is indeed expecting again and this pregnancy is so far really hard on her.<br />Poor thing, I’d normally just maxmotives her way through this.<br />
    24. 24. Amongst all the near deaths and skilling it was time for Arianna’s birthday, yaaaaay!<br />Stu is by far my most photogenic sim ever, and this picture is incredibly cute.<br />:D<br />
    25. 25. See! Look at his face!<br />So awesome.<br />
    26. 26. In a poof of confetti little Arianna was now even harder to take care of. <br />:D<br />She’s a Gemini 4/7/7/6/3<br />And absolutely aodrable!<br />But even so, I think I’ll have my sim encourage her into squeezing out a few more niceness points when she’s older.<br />
    27. 27. That night Alii rolled a want for a job in the oceanography career track and I thought: Why not?<br />It would certainly be a lot easier than trying to maintain the garden and keep everyone alive, plus she’d get maternity pay.<br />Although I can’t imagine that chumming fish is the nicest job for a pregnant lady, what with the heightened sense of smell and all.<br />Still, she wanted it!<br />Although it forced me to do something I had never done before, and had been dreading since deciding to do this legacy.<br />
    28. 28. The nanny.<br />Dun dundun!<br />Who knows what horror stories await me as she wanders in to my sims cosy little box of a home, I’ll have to keep an incredibly close eye on her.<br />
    29. 29. -insert shocked face here-<br />This was the first thing she did, interact with the toddler!<br />No baked alaska fires, no chilling out reading the newspaper, straight to work!<br />I think I’ve fallen in love.<br />
    30. 30. BUT THEN SHE TOOK OUR MONEY.<br />That sly cow, getting all pally with the kid just to steal from her when her back is turned.<br />Nanny I curse you and your stupid walrus nose!<br />
    31. 31. Thankfully Alii returned home not long after Stu had left for work so I could send the evil thieving nanny on her way.<br />She also got a promotion, see how much happier she is about it than Stu? That’s ‘cause she’s awesome and he’s not.<br />;D<br />
    32. 32. I didn’t really get pictures of Arianna’s training doodads once again due to my general crappiness, but her first word was mummy. :D<br />
    33. 33. And I also missed the actual popping, strike me down!<br />But here’s the first bit of bump and LOOK WHERE SHE IS.<br />I do not set this up I swear, those instant meals must have some sort of baby growing hormone in them.<br />Either that or Alii just really really likes popping in the kitchen.<br />
    34. 34. Arianna was due to grow up that afternoon so Stu set to teaching her her last skill, walking.<br />They are the sweetest farther/daughter duo I have ever seen. She constantly follows him around and he’s always snuggling her.<br />I love my little virtual family. :3<br />
    35. 35. A DOODAD!<br />AN ACTUAL DOODAD!<br />I’m a fast learner eh?<br />This is also probably as close as I’m ever going to get to a family picture seeing as that’s where Alii ALWAYS is. Not that I can blame her, this pregnancy is really plumetting her needs.<br />
    36. 36. As scheduled that afternoon Arianna was taken to her cake.<br />Alii was present but I didn’t want her big fat belly in the pictures.<br />Just kidding, she was just stood off to the side so didn’t really fit in.<br />
    38. 38. Aaaand I missed the jumping. <br />But here she is after a little clothing change, looking all angelic.<br />Looks like I chose the right name for her eh? <br />
    39. 39. Finally, Alii found a new place to pop. :D<br />Although that bump is looking rather on the small side, perhaps it’s time to switch to actual food rather than Red Bull for dinner.<br />
    40. 40. Arianna’s first day of school was a snowday, lucky thing.<br />So seeing as her house is pretty much empty she set about making a snowman.<br />Yet MORE evidence of how cute and angelic she is.<br />Favourite. Sim. Ever.<br />
    41. 41. Oh.<br />Okay so maybe she isn’t all as angelic as she seems.<br />I’ll have to keep an eye on this one methinks, and also have Alii pump some nice points into her.<br />Can’t be having no evil sims in the first generation.<br />
    42. 42. Yet another promotion picture for Stu, and surprise surprise he looks incredibly bored with the whole affair.<br />
    43. 43. Even the fact that he’s just earned 5,000 simoleans doesn’t crack a smile from him.<br />It’s like his teenage ‘whatever’-ness never went away.<br />But here’s what I love...<br />
    44. 44. “A hug from my daughter after a hard day’s pwning the n00bs??! SQUEE!”<br />I told you, these two absolutely adore each other, I almost can’t stand it.<br />SO MUCH CUTE ALL AT ONCE.<br />
    45. 45. Then some stuff happened, then Alii went into labour.<br />In a whole new place!<br />
    46. 46. Ouch, ouch, ouch etc etc.<br />
    47. 47. And then baby number two...<br />WAIT.<br />What are you doing?<br />Don’t you DARE be handing that baby off!!<br />Alii! Alii?!<br />
    48. 48. Sigh.<br />Into the world came Alisa and Amadora.<br />Two MORE girls with exactly their father’s colouring.<br />So that’s twins, a boy still needed, and no genetics from my sim passed on.<br />Alisa is a variant of Alicia meaning “great happiness”.<br />Amadorais a variant of Amadore meaning “gift of love”.<br />So their names are sweet enough but UGH! TWINS!<br />I think I need a break.<br />So this is where I shall leave you, keep your eyes peeled for chapter two shall be with you very shortly!<br />In which I go slightly insane from trying to look after twins and have an heir.<br />Good times!<br />
