Pollett Legacy 30

  1. 1. The Pollett Legacy: Chapter 30<br />We Are Still Here<br />
  2. 2. Welcome to Chapter 30 of the Pollett Legacy! Thirty chapters, can you believe it? As the title suggests, the legacy is still carrying on, over three years since it began.<br />As it has been about 6 months since my last update (yeah, sorry about that) a quick recap at this point would be helpful. We are currently with the heiress for Generation 8, who is Adah, and she is married to this guy from college, Jess.<br />They have 5 children.<br />
  3. 3. The oldest two are Charisma...<br />
  4. 4. And Skye.<br />
  5. 5. In the middle is Savannah.<br />
  6. 6. The younger two are Tucker*<br />*(If this is indeed Tucker.)<br />
  7. 7. ..and Eleazar.*<br />*(If this is indeed Eleazar.)<br />(Okay. I’ve forgotten which is which. It’s been that long since I’ve played.)<br />
  8. 8. In actual fact, only one of the children is biologically Jess’. The other four are Charity’s, Adah’s lover from college. Can you guess which?<br />
  9. 9. At the end of the last chapter, (and I apologise that you’d be forgiven for not remembering it), elder Kaji passed on. I was really sad about this, it was the end of an era. Everyone else in the family is pretty gutted.<br />
  10. 10. Well, apart from possibly Jess, who missed the whole thing because he was busy playing guitar, as usual.<br />
  11. 11. But now onto events new.<br />Jess has been looking forward to this day, and dreading it.<br />“It’s my baby’s birthday!”<br />
  12. 12. That’s right, Savannah becomes a teen today.<br />
  13. 13. Savannah grows up to be a much prettier version of her dad, although she still has many of the same features.<br />
  14. 14. She doesn’t take long to extol the virtues of fitness – her chosen hobby – to the family. I like this look on her, it’s quite cool.<br />
  15. 15. Adah is beginning to feel her age, and coupled with the agony of having a boyfriend in his never ending college years, has finally turned to Kedar, the family cowplant, to relieve her of some years.<br />
  16. 16. “This is our secret, Kedar. I’d hate Jess to think I was worried about my age.”<br />“Moo?”<br />
  17. 17. “Oh, that feels goooooood.”<br />
  18. 18. Things tick over, much as you’d expect them to.<br />Charity, Joel and Stacy come over quite a lot, to see Skye and Charisma.<br />
  19. 19. The girls also bring home a lot of friends, socialites that they are.<br />Skye has her own unique way of talking to people. She lacks nice points.<br />
  20. 20. Tucker (?) has discovered a love of sports, and watches them on TV all the time. (The lot being too small to actually put any proper sports equipment in for him.)<br />
  21. 21. “Boo! I could play better than that.... If we had a bigger yard.”<br />
  22. 22. Skye is the family sim of the family, despite being the pleasure sim of the family. She teaches her younger brothers how to study.<br />In the Sims 3, your kids do their homework automatically, and carry it around in their inventory so you don’t need a hack (such as macrotastics) in order to actually find it. Just thought I’d mention that.<br />
  23. 23. Jess ignores everything, if he can.<br />“Charisma is introducing herself to a girl on our lawn, and Charity is here again. Much as he’s a nice guy, I can’t help but feel that Adah gives him more attention than she gives me. “<br />Hmm. Why is the girl a problem?<br />
  24. 24. “Hey sugah, what’s your name? You look like my type.”<br />Ah. That’s why.<br />
  25. 25. It’s not long before Charisma has charmed her way into her new friends heart.<br />
  26. 26. And the first kiss inevitably follows.<br />
  27. 27. Charity is here to play the boys. No one has told them that they’re his but seeing as how he’s cleverer than Jess he’ll work it out soon enough.<br />“Why does no one play fair in this family?”<br />I think you can blame Adah for that one.<br />
  28. 28. “Wait, I’ve just worked something out.”<br />There, penny dropped. I reckoned it would.<br />“Gosh mister, you look familiar.”<br />“That’s because I’m your-”<br />
  29. 29. Not in front of Savannah dear.<br />“She knows, doesn’t she?”<br />“Yes, but I try not to remember.”<br />
  30. 30. “Wait, there are two of them again?”<br />“That guy looked a lot like my brother...”<br />Gee, here we go.<br />
  31. 31. “You’re telling me your mother has five kids and four of them are mine?”<br />“Sure thing dad. That seems to be the case.”<br />“This family is so screwed.”<br />“You’re telling me.”<br />
  32. 32. “How come you’re still in college and mum can’t marry you?”<br />“Eh, just the way legacy neighbourhoods roll, I guess. Thems the rules, and we break them as best we can.”<br />“Is there really nothing we can do for mum? She’s going a bit... Funny.”<br />
  33. 33. “She thinks we don’t notice how much time she spends with that cowplant. Well... Most people don’t seem to notice but I do.”<br />“I’m sorry kiddo, but there really isn’t more I can do.”<br />“Isn’t there?”<br />
  34. 34. The woes of avoiding legacy rules aside, life continues.<br />“I like computer games.”<br />
  35. 35. “Charisma, we have a huge assignment in next week, hadn’t you better get your ass in gear?”<br />“In a minute!”<br />“She is so much like dad.”<br />Which dad?<br />
  36. 36. Skye on the other hand, despite being the gamer of the house, is the one that does all the hard work.<br />She is honestly the least pleasure-sim-like pleasure sim I’ve ever played. Which suits me fine.<br />
  37. 37. “I got an A+!”<br />“Keep it up Skye, and it’ll turn into millions of simoleans some days.”<br />Ever the fortune sim, is Adah. Much like her forefathers.<br />
  38. 38. “Your kids are wonderful, Charity. I’m so glad you stuck around for them.”<br />“Mff.”<br />
  39. 39. Another day, another conquest for Charisma.<br />
  40. 40. And Skye is slowly working her way into Ben Bee’s heart. Despite only having two nice points, she dotes on him quite considerably.<br />She’s painfully shy about it.<br />Like Charity much?<br />
  41. 41. Savannah also has her mates, but she doesn’t set her heights much higher than the fitness bike outside.<br />“And then I worked out for four hours straight and had to spend two days in bed with strained muscles. It was awesome.”<br />“I have to go. I think I forgot to... iron the cat...”<br />
  42. 42. Jess has taken up every hobby imaginable to forget about the fact that there are rampant lesbians on the loose in his house.<br />“I am calm, I am with friends. I am in my happy place. La lala.”<br />
  43. 43. He even invites over old college mates.<br />This is Prince Blokie, a placeholder from way back when.<br />“I met the cutest guy!”<br />“Not you too?!”<br />
  44. 44. Not everyone is gay around this place though.<br />“Ben... um, that is....”<br />
  45. 45. “Shut up and kiss me already.”<br />“Eww. That is sickeningly romantic.”<br />“Sis, you’re ruining my moment here...”<br />
  46. 46. Everyone likes to go jogging together. Because they’re all fit like that.<br />
  47. 47. Savannah is obviously the organiser of that little thing.<br />“I only have time for fitness. Everything else is not as interesting.”<br />You’re not exactly showing off your interesting side, if you wanted to be named heiress. Just a heads up.<br />
  48. 48. Now that they’ve started, Ben and Skye don’t stop.<br />
  49. 49. “I love you Ben.”<br />“I love you too Skye.”<br />“Lets always stay together.”<br />I don’t think I have the patience for too much more of this.<br />
  50. 50. “You got me demoted again.”<br />Me? How is this my fault?<br />“You’re the one that picks the bad chance cards.”<br />Yeah, but you’re the one that gets them!<br />
  51. 51. “I’m ignoring everything, la lala.”<br />Are you still here then?<br />
  52. 52. “I’m the best fortune sim ever.”<br />You’ll have a job with that, I’ve played MANY over this legacy.<br />How cute, I’m getting nostalgic already.<br />
  53. 53. One day, there was a disturbance in the force.<br />Charisma felt it in the textures on her dress.<br />
  54. 54. Passers by stopped to look at the shadows that now followed them down the street.<br />
  55. 55. “Ooh yeah! You finally got that new processor you wanted, didn’t you?”<br />You have to ruin all my good news, don’t you?<br />We’ll skip over the fact it was a Christmas present, cough.<br />
  56. 56. “There are reflections in this mirror. How did I never notice before that I am so hot?!”<br />And like that, there was satisfaction with the new graphics.<br />
  57. 57. Sadly, the boys were too busy slap dancing to notice their new pretties.<br />(I’ll be surprised if there are no dancing scholarships when people leave. Honestly, they never stop slap dancing.)<br />
  58. 58. And Savannah had just passed out from exhaustion because she works out too hard.<br />Some people are just never pleased.<br />
  59. 59. Other Sims are working hard on their hobbies too, and there are always random people handing out membership cards.<br />You’re all bored of hobbies now, aren’t you?<br />I’m not. Tough. :p<br />
  60. 60. Charisma is still tinkering with the bath tub.<br />
  61. 61. Skye prefers to spend time with Ben.<br />Am I going to have to bring him to college? Because honestly, that’ll take up lots of time and I’d like to actually finish this legacy sometime this decade.<br />“You’re so pushy!”<br />It’s my job.<br />
  62. 62. We bring you a brief interlude for birthdays.<br />
  63. 63. Hello hotties!<br />
  64. 64. Jess got another promotion, good for him.<br />“Why does no one run out to greet me?”<br />Well your kids *cough* are all teens now, which can’t help.<br />
  65. 65. You’re getting stalkerish, am I going to have to put a restraining order on you?<br />“Maybe you could come and play my household for a change. I know Harmony is dying to actually marry that cute blonde bundle of fluff you graduated for her.”<br />Agh, so many things to do, so little time. I have the Sims 3 now, I don’t actually need you anymore.<br />
  66. 66. “Why are you still here then?”<br />I feel I have a duty to this legacy to finish it, now that it’s so close.<br />“Stop talking to me and get on with it then!”<br />And I’m apparently pushy? Sheesh!<br />
  67. 67. The boys have gone downtown to buy new clothes and I thought I’d send them to the cemetery to check out if there are any ghosts tonight.<br />
  68. 68. Unfortunately, there is just this vampire on a rampage.<br />
  69. 69. Well, when she isn’t mopping up plants.<br />Why would you do that?<br />
  70. 70. Ah hah – that would be why.<br />
  71. 71. “Nice night for fishing, isn’t it?”<br />“Bleh!”<br />Are they vampire fish?<br />
  72. 72. “Dawns a coming, gotta fly!”<br />Exciting life, being a vampire, isn’t it?<br />
  73. 73. The makeovers are cute.<br />This is Tucker, as he’s the sporty one.<br />
  74. 74. Which makes this Eleazar.<br />*Drools a little*<br />Have I mentioned that Eleazar is my favourite name?<br />
  75. 75. Jess finds the passing of age swift and unexpected.<br />
  76. 76. “Why do I suddenly feel like I’m wearing a wig?”<br />
  77. 77. I like elders, they always seem to me to look really sweet.<br />
  78. 78. “Muppy, I’m so glad you could come over for my husbands birthday!”<br />“When is your birthday?”<br />“Oh not for a while yet. Say, there’s cake over there if you’d like some.”<br />“Ooh, cake! You’re too kind!”<br />
  79. 79. “Hmm, Muppy... I mean cake.”<br />
  80. 80. “Was she good, fella?”<br />“Burp.”<br />“I’ve always wondered – is it really good cake?”<br />“Mooo.”<br />
  81. 81. “Yeah, probably best not to find out. Do you have to be so rude about it, Kedar?”<br />
  82. 82. “Don’t judge me for this. I’m not ready to be old and saggy yet.”<br />
  83. 83. “I’m just doing what needs doing.”<br />
  84. 84. “Ah, I can feel the years melting away!”<br />
  85. 85. “If I keep this up, there won’t be anyone left in the neighbourhood by the time I should be 50.”<br />
  86. 86. “Do you still find me attractive, Jess?”<br />“Of course I do. You’ll be attractive to me even when you’re old and saggy like me.”<br />
  87. 87. “Eww, saggy old man woo hoo.”<br />
  88. 88. “I’ve had about as much as I can take now, I’m escaping this loony bin.”<br />
  89. 89. “I’m right behind you, sis.”<br />
  90. 90. “Aww, I’m gonna miss the girls. Hey, what’s this addressed to me amongst the post?”<br />If you want to find the true way to eternal youth and beauty, meet me in three days time. A taxi will arrive for you at 5am. Don’t be late!<br />
  91. 91. “Who could that be from? And can they really ensure my youth and beauty forever?”<br />
  92. 92. The girls have arrived at college. The break from home turns out to be just what they wanted.<br />Mass jogging sessions inevitably ensue.<br />
  93. 93. And Maria heads over from the Greek House to initiate them.<br />“Looks like the vampire rampage made it over here too, hey?”<br />“I can’t stop saying “bleh!” It’s so annoying!”<br />
  94. 94. Soon enough the girls are checking out their makeovers in the Greek House mirror. Charisma has gone for some funky highlights.<br />
  95. 95. Whilst Skye likes her comfy tracksuit.<br />
  96. 96. Sharon, the house zombie, is still around too, generally being fat and eating pizza.<br />
  97. 97. All the pets are present and correct too, including Misato here, Kaji’swomrat.<br />“Well, we’re here now. Where did mum say that dad lived?”<br />
  98. 98. And that, dear readers, is where I shall leave you. There are few unanswered questions hanging for next time, such as:<br /><ul><li>Who is the mystery note from, and will Adah go?
  99. 99. Can Charity help the girls through college and save Adah from herself?</li></ul>All this and more in the next exciting Pollett Legacy installment!!Happy Simming!<br />
