Shiver Me Trimbles Chapter 1

  1. 1. Shiver Me Trimbles!<br />A Sims 3 Legacy.<br />Part 1: <br />Double The Fun<br />
  2. 2. Hello, and welcome to-<br />“This is a legacy.”<br />Well done, Sim3Me, have a cookie. This is indeed a legacy.<br />
  3. 3. Does she look slightly terrified, or is that just the crazy staring eyes?<br />“I’m slightly terrified. Remember what happened the last time I started a legacy?”<br />Uh....<br />
  4. 4. The Tanakh Legacy was an undocumented Matriach founded by Me that I began but never got past Gen 1 on.<br />“Yep, there’s the start of it. Do you remember what happened after that?”<br />*Racks brains*<br />
  5. 5. That’s Kaji and Adah, SimMe’s daughter.<br />“They had an illegitimate love child who ran for heirship during the Pollett legacy.”<br />Good times.<br />
  6. 6. “Well, speak for yourself. I was being flaunted about like some cheap prostitute by then.”<br />Point.<br />“Can we get back to me now?”<br />
  7. 7. You’re going to be a pain, aren’t you?<br />“Who me? Wouldn’t dream of it. What do I start with?”<br />Take a look around your new neighbourhood. What do you see?<br />
  8. 8. “Well, that house over there is pretty sweet.”<br />Indeed it is. Keep looking.<br />
  9. 9. “Hey, that one’s even better! Am I going to be living in the lap of luxury instead of on the lawn?”<br />Come on, SimMe, what do you *actually* think this is?<br />“Sigh. How bad is it?”<br />
  10. 10. “Aww. It’s bad isn’t it?”<br />Turn around very slowly.<br />
  11. 11. “You have got to be joking.”<br />Do I ever joke? So, from the leftover pennies we have $1,800 for your “essentials.”<br />
  12. 12. La Voila!<br />This is the living room, with a little bookcase and a comfy chair.<br />“It’s a rubbish chair.”<br />
  13. 13. Shush. This is the kitchen, and there’s the bedroom behind it in the background.<br />“Do I even have a stove?”<br />No, we couldn’t afford one.<br />
  14. 14. And I put the toilet and the shower *behind* the wall, to give maximum privacy.<br />“It’s not even a whole room.”<br />You could have had a whole room, but then you wouldn’t have had a bed. Or a fridge.<br />
  15. 15. “Fine, I guess it will do. What are my stats?”<br />SimMe, also known as Cathy (from Catharsist) Trimble (which is my married name) chose the traits Bookworm, Eccentric, Artistic, Excitable and *cough* Flirty. Her lifetime wish is to become a Professional Author, that is, to earn $4,000 a week in royalties from books she has written.<br />
  16. 16. This is a legacy however, which means that lifetime wants come second to the primary objective, which is producing Generation 2.<br />“Taxi! To the art gallery!”<br />
  17. 17. Cathy is not the only person excited by art, apparently. She literally runs from the car.<br />
  18. 18. “Hee! Look at the schnozz on this guy!”<br />I’ll be saying.... Not... Then.<br />
  19. 19. Tourists!<br />“No to that too, thank yo- Over here!”<br />
  20. 20. What? Him?<br />“Hows that for an introduction?”<br />His name is Sherman.<br />
  21. 21. After *giggle* Sherman has relieved himself, he and Cathy are swiftly introduced.<br />“I live on a lawn in the posh end of town. Would you like to procreate?”<br />“Duh...”<br />
  22. 22. Nice one there, SimMe. Quick! Distract him with a silly face!<br />“Blelelelelele!”<br />
  23. 23. Thankfully, Sherman has a sense of humour. He forgets Cathy’s opening line swiftly.<br />
  24. 24. As Cathy is a Flirty Sim, it is not long before they are “getting down to business.”<br />“I’ve got a REALLY sexy lawn.”<br />
  25. 25. “Well, um... That sounds like a great offer and all, but....”<br />
  26. 26. Swine! How could you resist such a cute little face?<br />“Well, uh... How about I come and see it firsthand?”<br />
  27. 27. And just like that, Cathy has her first lawn visitor.<br />“It’s um... Very... Roomy.”<br />“What were you thinking? This is a terrible idea! I don’t even have any lights!”<br />
  28. 28. So... Fix him something nice for dinner.<br />
  29. 29. “It is lucky for you that I am a master of salad.”<br />Lucky for you too, as you have no stove and can’t prepare anything else.<br />
  30. 30. “There’s nowhere to sit either.”<br />He genuinely sat on the toilet to eat his salad... You two are going to get along just fine.<br />“What are you trying to imply about me?”<br />
  31. 31. And just like that, the night grew late and it was time to go home.<br />
  32. 32. “This bed smacks way too hard of the poverty in which I am forced to live. Couldn’t you have picked a nicer duvet cover?”<br />I just may be able to fix that.<br />
  33. 33. T<br />Ta da! I designed the pattern myself. Do you likey?<br />*Snore*<br />
  34. 34. I even redecorated the “house” to match. Hey, are you even listening? Appreciate me!<br />“I’m starting to smell and I’d like to go home.”<br />
  35. 35. Seriously. He just stood there.<br />All night.<br />
  36. 36. “I just had the worst night sleep EVER. I hate that bed with a passion, and somebody kept snoring.”<br />That might just be...<br />
  37. 37. ...Sherman, who fell asleep in the “bathroom” next to his dirty plate eventually.<br />
  38. 38. He even slept with his eyes open.<br />“That is really creepy.”<br />You’re not kidding.<br />
  39. 39. Cathy eventually had to wake him up and tell him to go home.<br />“Thank God, I thought you’d never let me go. This is a nut house.”<br />“Yeah, welcome to a legacy.”<br />
  40. 40. SimMe promptly went back to bed, and slept til 5pm.<br />
  41. 41. Whereupon I made her get a job.<br />“I’m a playground attendant for 6 hours a day. Do these kids ever actually do any work?”<br />
  42. 42. “Whee! A swing!”<br />I think Cathy is going to do well in a career in education.<br />
  43. 43. Day one of Cathy’s new job has dawned.<br />“I can’t get rid of the plates without a sink. I don’t have a sink. The plates smell.”<br />Patience, SimMe, this is why you have got a job.<br />
  44. 44. “I have the trendiest jumper on right now.”<br />It’s kind of cute, in a... Brown... Sort of way.<br />“I’m thinking of my sink.”<br />
  45. 45. After work, Cathy pops next door to the gym to meet some locals and work off her salad belly.<br />
  46. 46. “Please don’t ever let me get that fat.”<br />Seeing as how you’re based on me and prone to a bit of overeating, I’m not confident I can promise you that.<br />
  47. 47. Tired and smelly, Cathy heads home to....<br />
  48. 48. “Hey! A sink!”<br />Now you can wash all your dirty plates and be happy.<br />
  49. 49. On day two of the new job, Cathy drops off some Autumn salad to win a cooking contest.<br />“Can I go to bed yet?”<br />
  50. 50. I need to do something about this rubbishy bed. All she ever does is sleep and she never has energy.<br />*Snore*<br />*Sigh*<br />
  51. 51. A few days has passed, and Cathy isn’t getting any younger...<br />“Watch it!”<br />...So she has invited Sherman *snort* to the park, in order to woo him.<br />
  52. 52. “Whilst *some people* may find your name funny, I think it’s quite cute. And I still think you should come and live on my empty lawn with me so that we can have lots of screaming children.”<br />“I don’t really have a choice in this matter, do I?”<br />
  53. 53. “Well, no.”<br />“Why not then?”<br />That’s the spirit.<br />
  54. 54. “So joining a legacy is as simple as one, two, three.”<br />“Er...”<br />“Don’t think about it too much. It helps.”<br />
  55. 55. “Now you agree to marry me.”<br />“Okay, now I’m kind of excited. I always wanted to get married!”<br />
  56. 56. Legacy weddings are generally swift and without much fuss.<br />“Is that it then? Am I in?”<br />
  57. 57. “Well now... Now the fun begins.”<br />Welcome the happy couple to their new lawn! But you’ll have to tune in next time to see it!<br />Happy Simming!<br />
