I.M. Bored: A Legacy in 10 Generations - Gen 7 Part 1

  1. 1. Hi! Welcome back to the totally observational legacy I am doing for kicks and points. <br />Do you realize that this is the furthest I’ve ever gotten in a legacy? If I count Apocalypses, I’ve gotten to Generation Six. But pure out legacies? Most of them are dead by gen three. So I am totally happy with myself and ready to get to cracking on the next 100 pictures (bear in mind I take 100 pictures and then write if the final result is less than 100 slides it’s because I couldn’t think of anything witty or amusing or interesting or anything really to say. <br />Because in general, the Boreds are boring. <br />So lets get this party started.<br />
  2. 2. “Aaaawooooo!!!”<br />“Doesn’t that hurt?”<br />“What hurt?”<br />“The door impaling you through your head.”<br />“No, not really. You see the doors in this house are really only illusions so that one can have an illusion of privacy. If they were solid, all of the heirs would have long since killed themselves while having morning sickness.”<br />“In a way that makes a perverted kind of sense.”<br />
  3. 3. This pointless slide is to show that Babylon 5 now knows EVERYTHING. No more badges, skills, special skills, or hidden skills can I teach him. <br />What does this mean? Nothing really. Just that he doesn’t sleep and I made him skill under a sun lamp so he wouldn’t die. But the boringness of the elders isn’t why you’re here. <br />
  4. 4. You’re here for glowing toddlers. <br />Olivia here really takes after Prof. River. <br />
  5. 5. While our heiress, Penelope is a mini-Vash. <br />
  6. 6. As with most family sims, there was a rush to see who could train the kids.<br />“Are you done, honey. It’s my turn to teach Olivia something.”<br />“So that means Penelope’s free?”<br />“Yep.”<br />“Woo! Nursery Rhyme time!”<br />
  7. 7. “You know you can sing better if your hand isn’t in your mouth.”<br />
  8. 8. “Come to Daddy.”<br />“No. You not Daddy. Daddy white.”<br />“Okay… I see how you can be confused. Come to Mommy.”<br />“Mommy?”<br />“If that floats your boat.”<br />“Mommy!”<br />
  9. 9. However, as happy as he was to be teaching his twins their skills, there was still something that was tantalizingly out of his reach. Not to mention infesting his mind with its presence. <br />
  10. 10. So he decided to do something about it. <br />
  11. 11. Three guesses what it was. <br />
  12. 12. If you guessed, adopting a toddler. You guessed right. <br />The exterminator is there because we somehow got roaches. <br />
  13. 13. Meet Charlene Bored, the game named her so if you can think of any Charlene’s out there in the TV, Movie, Anime world assume she’s named for that. Me? I drew a blank. <br />She is a Pisces with stats of 5/3/7/3/7. Amusingly she will fit right in with this generation of nice kids. <br />
  14. 14. Grandma Willow was the first to interact with her, giving her smart milk while her parents were still sleeping after their nightly activities. <br />
  15. 15. Vash was the first to get up and taught Charlene to walk. <br />
  16. 16. While a showered Prof River taught Penelope to speak. <br />
  17. 17. And after he finished that stalked Vash who was busy teaching Olivia her final skill. <br />
  18. 18. “Hey there little one, did someone drop you off on our doorstep? You know that was really smart of them. Children are always welcome in this house.”<br />“Potty.”<br />“Is that a statement or a request.”<br />“Potty!”<br />“Well I do hear that it is one of the most important skills a child can learn. I wouldn’t know since I’ve never used the potty myself.”<br />
  19. 19. “Ahhh this brings back memories. I wish Jason were here to share it with me.”<br />“Potty.”<br />
  20. 20. “Ah yes, the memories. I’ve missed this. I wonder if the clicky-person would let me spawn a plant baby?”<br />No, Babylon. You had the most kids out of any of my heirs and you’re slated to die soon anyway. Content yourself with being able to live long enough to see your great-grandchildren. <br />
  21. 21. Skills learned, the triplets were left on free will for the rest of their toddler years. <br />“Mmmm… Blocks!”<br />
  22. 22. They were so obsessed with the block table that all three ended up being BFFs by the time they aged to child. <br />I only wish getting siblings to get a long were as easy. <br />
  23. 23. “Eek!!! Mr Robot get me!”<br />
  24. 24. All too soon it was time for the trio to age to child. <br />
  25. 25. Into really not appropriate clothing. <br />
  26. 26. “Be right back, I need a haircut and new clothes.”<br />
  27. 27. “Now I really need new clothes.”<br />
  28. 28. “Argh! Stop it! Pervert! Why are you stalking me?”<br />“Because it’s fun.”<br />
  29. 29. Much better:<br />From Left to right – Charlene, Penelope Garcia, Olivia Benson<br />
  30. 30. “There’s creepy men here, Garcie. One was trying to watch me while I was changing clothes.”<br />“What are you talking about, Via?”<br />“The old men. The ones you can see through. You know what I’m talking about.”<br />“The ghosts?”<br />“Yeah, them. They’re pedobears. We should keep away from them.”<br />“Okay. But I don’t see what’s wrong with them. They’re just our ancestors coming out to say hi.”<br />“Well, it’s creepy. And I don’t like creepy.”<br />“Know what else is creepy? Bricky. I swear he’s been looking at me funny.”<br />“Really? I’ll check it out.”<br />
  31. 31. “Hmmm, yeah. Totally creepy.”<br />
  32. 32. “What did you and Via talk about?”<br />“Creepy old guys.”<br />“You mean like Pop-pop?”<br />“No. Like Bricky.”<br />“Oh, yeah. Creepy.”<br />“I’m bored with this. I’m gonna go sing.”<br />“Me too.”<br />“Race you!”<br />
  33. 33. “Ha! First!”<br />“Greetings young heiress!”<br />“I dun wanna be first no more.”<br />
  34. 34. “I want to love you but I’d better not touch.”<br />“Don’t touch!”<br />“Aaaaaah!!! Creepy old guy!”<br />“I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop.”<br />“Stop scaring me! I’m going someplace else away from the creepy guy.”<br />-----<br />Lyrics from Alice Cooper’s “Poison” --- grumbles at Doc for putting that earbug in her head. <br />
  35. 35. “See through guys freaked you out, right?”<br />“How’d you know?”<br />“I wanna be a detective when I grow up. It’s my job to notice these things.”<br />“Oh.”<br />
  36. 36. Okay while I love this animation, why did they have the sims talk about crap like pianos, grills, and baths. Seriously try writing something romantic based on those speech bubbles.<br />“Oh River, I love you like I’m drowning in my own bath.”<br />“Vash, you are the bratwurst on my grill. Without you I am an incomplete barbeque.” <br />Yeah. Totally doesn’t work. <br />
  37. 37. “I’m Lord of the Dance!”<br />
  38. 38. “Is it just me or do you think we’re the only sane ones here.”<br />“It’s not just you, Via.”<br />“So you want to get out of here?”<br />“I can’t. I’m the heiress.”<br />“Sucks to be you.”<br />“Tell me about it.”<br />
  39. 39. Since the trio were now children it was time for them to get into private school and another visit from the Highly Inappropriate Headmaster.<br />
  40. 40. “Might I say that this left over poptart is wonderful. It puts me in the mood for romance.”<br />“What?”<br />“I’d like to date your daughter, Mr. Bored. She’s something special.”<br />“Um. She’s married. And standing right there. And I’m going to scoot way over here now since she’s obviously lost it.”<br />“Mmmm, the headmaster is hot when he’s making inappropriate comments.”<br />
  41. 41. “That was an amazing dinner and the company perfect. I don’t even need to see the house, the children can attend my school with my blessing.”<br />
  42. 42. “There’s just something about this family that makes me lose my head.”<br />
  43. 43. With the headmaster visit a rousing success, the family retreated once again into predictible boredom. <br />
  44. 44. The season changed to summer and with it every one wanted to fish.<br />
  45. 45. And I do mean everyone. <br />
  46. 46. The only member of the family not fishing was Vash who had gotten a job in Adventurer. And this was when I discovered that I have a conflict somewhere. <br />Crap. I am not looking forward to a 50/50 method. <br />
  47. 47. “Whatcha looking at? You’d better not be a bad man or I’ll make you pay when I get older.”<br />“You need to not take your namesake so seriously.”<br />“Why not? If the shoe fits…”<br />
  48. 48. I find it interesting how the game selects the greeter out of the kids. Charlene is this generation’s greeter. Every day when Vash comes home she’s the one who drops everything and dashs out to give Vash a hug. I guess she is just thankful that Vash adopted her. <br />
  49. 49. Greetings taken care of, she can now go back to what she was doing. Namely her homework. With so many elders and adults in the house it was a race who could teach the kids how to do homework. <br />
  50. 50. Homework complete it was time to fulfill more wants. Namely Marco Polo. <br />
  51. 51. Which they played endlessly. <br />
  52. 52. Oh and Vash finally got his fishing time. <br />
  53. 53. “I’ll be seeing you soon!”<br />“I know that, Mom. You didn’t have to tell me.”<br />“Jason’s missed you!”<br />“I’ve missed him too.”<br />“Great now I have a message for my newest descendant.” <br />
  54. 54. “Welcome to the family!”<br />“Thanks. I could have done without the welcome.”<br />
  55. 55. “Hmmm… scared her all ready. Besides Scot’s a much better butt-monkey.”<br />
  56. 56. Life continued. Prof. River really started to annoy me with his wants. I know he can’t help it being a romance sim, so I am working getting his LTW of 20 woohoos while Vash is at work. So once again the well got pressed into service. <br />
  57. 57. “Hi Daddy! Did you know that Father’s kissing another man in the back yard right now?”<br />“No, I didn’t. But it’s okay. They’re friends. Friends can kiss other friends and not have it mean anything.”<br />“Oh. Okay!”<br />
  58. 58. “You wanted a skill too?”<br />“Yep!”<br />“Which one?”<br />“Body. You?”<br />“I didn’t care. Any skill would do. I guess it’s just that old fall feeling.”<br />
  59. 59. “I’m a reindeer!”<br />Eva is fast catching up on her mother and father as the most scaring ghost. Murphy loves me. <br />
  60. 60. “Was that Gramma Eva?”<br />“White hair, green skin, purple clothes?”<br />“Yes.”<br />“Then that was her. I thought she was a good witch.”<br />“Emphasis on the word was. Now she’s a ghost and we’re sleeping in her beds.”<br />“Beds?”<br />“Romance sim.”<br />“Oh.”<br />
  61. 61. And then came the day I was dreading.<br />I actually missed it the first time through, he was out doing his thing in the garden and I didn’t catch it until I got the insurance pop up. So I sacrificed a point and reloaded the lot so that he could get the send off he deserved. <br />
  62. 62. Surrounded by his family.<br />
  63. 63. “Babylon 5 Bored, it’s time.”<br />“Is that drink for me? Because I don’t drink. Plantsim.”<br />“What if I tell you it is water from the purest spring kissed by the lips of your beloved Jason?”<br />“Oh well, then that’s different. Give me it!”<br />“You’ll have to follow me.”<br />“Are you going to take me to Jason?”<br />“That’s the plan.”<br />“Then lead the way.”<br />
  64. 64. Without a backward glance, Babylon 5 entered the other world. Leaving behind a grieving family. <br />
  65. 65. Although no one was quite as upset as Charlene who lost the man who taught her the importance of the potty. <br />
  66. 66. Babylon 5 Bored.<br />5th Generation Heir<br />Died at 89 days old. Left money to 43 people including $10,000 to each of your kids. You were an awesome heir and you and Jason were truly a power couple. I miss you Baby already. <br />
  67. 67. The family mourned as best it could by doing what Babylon 5 loved the best, fishing in the rain. <br />
  68. 68. “I do not see the attraction of this.”<br />
  69. 69. But life was quite the same without him. The ballet barre wasn’t as fun. <br />
  70. 70. The shark didn’t eat the swimmer with quite the same flair. <br />
  71. 71. The family was definitely fractured without the glue of Babylon 5 to hold them together. <br />
  72. 72. Vash seemed to sense that something needed to be done.<br />
  73. 73. And that his mother, Willow, wasn’t up to the challenge.<br />
  74. 74. So single handedly, Vash set out to try to fill the gap left by his hero’s death to bring the family closer together. With varying results.<br />“Read me the car case again!”<br />
  75. 75. “Daddy says I’m supposed to play with you because soon I’ll be to old to play. I don’t get what that means really. I think I’ll always up for playing no matter my age.”<br />“I think your Daddy meant you’ll soon be too big to play certain games.”<br />“Like what?”<br />
  76. 76. “Like helicopter. Although I hear that some men still play that when they get older. Women can’t play it though.”<br />“Can I play that with you Gramma?”<br />“Sure!”<br />
  77. 77. “I’m a helicopter!”<br />“So you want to higher?”<br />“Um…”<br />“Here we go!”<br />
  78. 78. “I think this high enough, Gramma! I’m gonna be sick!”<br />“You want me to stop?”<br />
  79. 79. “Yeah. I’m getting all wobblified.”<br />“Well we wouldn’t want that now.”<br />“No that would be bad.”<br />“Did you have fun?”<br />
  80. 80. “Oh yeah! That was great. I don’t ever want to grow up if it means I can’t have fun like that.”<br />“You can have other kinds of fun, though.”<br />“Really. Is it as fun as helicopter?”<br />“More.”<br />“Okay. Maybe growing up won’t be so bad.”<br />
  81. 81. The last few days of their child hood the trio spent most of their time studying – thank you fall wants. <br />
  82. 82. Or playing games that they wouldn’t be able to play as teens. <br />
  83. 83. Because all too soon it was time for their birthday.<br />
  84. 84. Charlene grew up first.<br />She rolled knowledge but since I don’t really see her as the knowledge type she got Popularity thanks to both Babylon 5 and Evangelion having Roof Raising Birthday parties for all of their life stages. She wants 20 best friends which she will get by the time she goes to college. <br />
  85. 85. She was followed by Olivia Benson. <br />Olivia also rolled knowledge which fits her a lot better. She wants to be a Mad Scientist.<br />
  86. 86. Then it was Penelope Garcia’s turn.<br />“What you going to wish for, Garcie.”<br />“That I get a better outfit than you did, Via.”<br />
  87. 87. “And this totally isn’t it.”<br />“Woo! Way to have to worst outfit out of any of us.”<br />“Shut up and I am so getting changed.”<br />“Me too!”<br />“Me three!” <br />-----<br />Penelope rolled Pleasure and wants 50 1st Dates. Which is the ONE lifetime want I have never managed to successfully get. I’ve even gotten the 20 pet best friends (growls at an apoc) but the first dates? I expect the well to be in mad use. <br />
  88. 88. Olivia and Charlene kept with their same style while Penelope went to town, dyeing her hair, getting a pair of glasses and slathering on the make up. <br />So with their makeovers completed there was one thing that most of the girls had mind.<br />
  89. 89. “It’s party time!”<br />~*~<br />
  90. 90. And this is where I will leave you, with Eva cheering her bed with the “I Just Had Sex” song. <br />Next time, dates, dates, and more dates. And college. Because we all know how much I love that.<br />Until then, Happy Simming!<br />
