Yakko's World: Parts 1-2 and BC Recap

  1. 1. Welcome back to Yakko’s World, Part 12.5… aka the recap episode.<br />
  2. 2. Okay, so it’s been a while. Over a year while… Umm… What can I say? Sorry? <br />Life happened. I’m sorry. <br />I can give excuses, reasons and rationales, but you don’t need those. What you do need is a recap. So, that is what you are getting. <br />This is going to summarize parts 1-12 and the important bits of Surprise!Baby Frank’s bachelor challenge. Mostly it’s going to be quick, but there are some important things I am going to be highlighting. <br />So off we go!<br />
  3. 3. It all started with a sim… Specifically, this sim. Yakko Warner.<br />
  4. 4. Crazy, kooky, snarky, and a hell of a lot of fun to play. He’s a mean as hell Pleasure/Family sim who is not afraid of inviting himself over… Anywhere…<br />
  5. 5. As most legacies and challenges begin there were the invetitable hardships punctuated by serendipity. In this case, the loss of a job leading to the discovery of a potential spouse. <br />
  6. 6. Since I am doing Simself mania it was important that I find a the perfect simself for Yakko, in this case joandsarah77. <br />
  7. 7. Her perfection was solidified when she left this fountain as a date gift for Yakko to put soap in.<br />
  8. 8. So after a few dates, Yakko proposed and Jo accepted.<br />
  9. 9. And soon they were quickly married. Even though their minister was stolen mid-service by Jo’s friend, Fuzzy. <br />
  10. 10. However not even the loss of their minister, Chicken Boo, could keep Yakko and Jo from fulfilling their duty and a new generation was started. <br />
  11. 11. Even though Jo proved to be a horrible pregnant sim. <br />
  12. 12. At the same time, Yakko started Club Acme for the Boolprop Clubhouse challenge. The place appealed to simselves, Legacy simsand townies alike. <br />
  13. 13. Still, it was ultimately the kids that became the focus of the story.<br />
  14. 14. The eldest was Burundi.<br />
  15. 15. Then the resident bug nut, Oman.<br />
  16. 16. Who had a thing with bees… <br />
  17. 17. As well as looking very hot in the shower… Not that I stalked him much.<br />
  18. 18. Then we had Onslow…<br />
  19. 19. Osaka…<br />
  20. 20. And Orkney…<br />
  21. 21. That’s right, triplets…<br />So, I rolled with the punches and went for the Golden Trio challenge. I wasn’t planning on it, but I did it. <br />
  22. 22. And did it with enough time for a few of the kids to get their first kisses. <br />
  23. 23. Then we come to our bad apple, Australia aka Oz. <br />As a child he stared down alpha wolves…<br />
  24. 24. And as a teen, he wouldn’t allow Yakko to cheat.<br />
  25. 25. And he did it all while looking damn good doing it. <br />
  26. 26. Most of the rest of the kids’ childhoods passed uneventfully. There were chickens to retrieve.<br />
  27. 27. And Aliens to meet. <br />
  28. 28. And all too soon, Yakko was an elder. <br />
  29. 29. Jo was several days younger than Yakko and decided to show him that you are only as old as you feel…<br />
  30. 30. …<br />
  31. 31. With a bit of an unexpected result…<br />
  32. 32. France, my surprise!ACR baby, was born literally right before Jo became an elder and after his eldest sister, Burundi, left the house. Meaning that there was a huge age gap between the kids. <br />
  33. 33. This age gap, coupled with a simself mother who was a little scatterbrained and forgetful at times led to Frank developing a bit of a complex. <br />
  34. 34. This complex was enhanced by Jo routinely confusing him for her other children. <br />
  35. 35. This fact, coupled by his advancing years, had Yakko worried about his wife’s health. <br />
  36. 36. Still, for the most part Frank had a happy childhood and was very close to his brother, Oz. Who thanks to my really not expecting a baby from ACR for Jo meant that Frank was also a literal clone of Oz. <br />
  37. 37. Then we get to college…<br />
  38. 38. College: the place where studying occurs…<br />
  39. 39. College: the place where clothes are optional.<br />
  40. 40. College: Where things happen that you would much rather forget…<br />
  41. 41. College: Where you prove your worthiness for heirship…<br />
  42. 42. And to the winner, Orkney, went the spoils. AKA lots of simself attention. <br />
  43. 43. Lots and lots of simself attention…<br />
  44. 44. Although, Orkney really only had his eye on one woman. Fuzzy Spork. The only woman whose hair matched his. <br />
  45. 45. And the rest of the kids were also finding love.<br />Oz found it with DrSupremeNerd’ssimself.<br />
  46. 46. And managed to prove his worthiness by not backing down from a grumpy Archie.<br />
  47. 47. And in celebration, he proposed to his ladylove. <br />**Note the fact that Yakko is there, I didn’t invite him.**<br />
  48. 48. Then Osaka found love with Three Lakes Native, Jace Fuchs. And my acceptance of her choice had nothing to do with the fact that my inner 12-year-old boy finds his last name funny. <br />
  49. 49. Then Burundi picked long-term dormie Kelvin Blackwood.<br />And that takes us up to Oman and Onslow…<br />
  50. 50. “Oh Director-person, I can’t bear to watch.”<br />I’m with you, Burundi. <br />
  51. 51. It all started off so innocuously. Oman was quickly enamored of the Simself of TheOlive211 and she of him. <br />
  52. 52. "Liv, I know I'm not much of a catch. Being a bee-loving spare but I have feelings. Please don't squash my little bee-heart." "I won't." <br />"Because I think I would break if you ever cheated on me.""I don't think you have to worry."<br />
  53. 53. His little bee-heart all abuzz, Oman wasted no time in proposing to Olive. <br />
  54. 54. Onslow was a different story…<br />~*~<br />Since Oman didn't find a simself, I used the crystal ball to see who his top match was. And got a nasty surprise... So I picked his second best match - the red headed maid, Andrea Shin."So, Andrea, that outfit must earn you a lot of tips.""Way to start a conversation, whoever you are. Actually, I prefer to go by Drea. No one says my name right.“<br />"My name is Onslow Warner, and I find you absolutely fascinating.""I get that a lot. It's the boobs.""No really. While they are certainly an impressive asset, I find myself being drawn to you.""What a nice thing to say!"<br />
  55. 55. "Marry me and help further my plans of world domination!""Aren't you moving a bit fast? I've only known you for like 3 hours.""My mind, and heart, have spoken. You are the woman for me.""Here, let me give you a token of my esteem.“<br />"Well if you put it that way... Sure! I'll marry you.""Yes! One step closer to my plan to take over the world."<br />
  56. 56. Everything seemed hunky-dory. But Onslow had his eye on someone else.<br />
  57. 57. An already taken someone else…<br />
  58. 58. And without any help from me…<br />
  59. 59. The two managed to fall in love.<br />It was at this point that Oman and Onslow pretty much became Bad Apples. I didn’t direct them to do anything other than eat if they needed to and do college things. My sims had thrown a huge wrench of plot at me and I was going to leave them to sort it out. <br />The only thing I did was keep inviting Drea and Olive over so that it could be sorted out.<br />
  60. 60. Olive, for her part, seemed torn. She honestly cared for Oman and Onslow both. I really think that if left to herself she would have never made a choice. <br />
  61. 61. However, she wasn’t left to herself. Onslow, when focussed on something, is really determined to get what he wants.<br />No matter who it hurts.<br />
  62. 62. "L-l-liv, how could you do this to me? I gave you my heart. How can you betray me like this?""I...""I loved you!"<br />
  63. 63. "I...""Say something!"<br />"Dammit, Liv! Say something!""Oman... I... I don't know what to say. It just happened.""Lightning happens! Bee stings happen! This was deliberate. You knew what you were doing was wrong!"<br />
  64. 64. Liv wasn’t alone in dealing with the repercussions of her actions. To say that Drea was upset would be a slight understatement. Just a slight one mind you. <br />~*~<br />"Onslow! I thought you loved me!""I do admit I care for you. However my feelings for Olive could not be denied.“<br />"Please tell me that you didn't do this on purpose, Onslow.“<br />"I can't do that, Drea. Olive is the only woman who has ever made me stop contemplating world domination. I would be a fool to let her slip through my fingers.""Onslow, I didn't know you felt this way about me.""It's the truth, I can only think of you. I dream of you, breath you, live you.“<br />"That's just great, Onslow. There's just one problem. I'm your fiancee! NOT HER!!!""Ow! I do believe I deserve your ire but not your fists.""Like hell!"<br />
  65. 65. Still at the time I was more concerned with my bug nut…<br />~*~<br />"Oh Olive, I gave you everything I had. My heart. My passion. My love. My dreams. And you just stepped on all of them like a cockroach under your foot.""I can't deal with this, Oman. I'm going inside.""She can't deal with it? What about me? What am I going to do?"<br />
  66. 66. "Liv, we're done.""What?!""We're done. I can't trust you after this. And I can't live with a woman I can't trust.""But I'm sorrry.""'Sorry' doesn't mend everything that you broke. 'Sorry' doesn't even come close. I just need this to be done. I need you gone so I can try to rebuild my life.""But...""No buts, just go. Please? Just go. I can't be around you anymore. It hurts too much."<br />
  67. 67. Outside, things were not going much better although far crueler.<br />~*~<br />"You are an inferior specimen and unfit for being my mate.""You don't mean that!""I do. I settled for you because my brother absconded with the woman I wanted. However I refuse to live a lie. Just go!"<br />
  68. 68. "H-he dumped me! I'm so ashamed. I don't think I can face anyone.""Then leave, woman. I don't need you caterwauling here."<br />
  69. 69. Once all of the fall out happened there was only really one thing left to do…<br />~*~<br />"You truly have made me the happiest of sims. I my only wish is to spend an eternity with you. I am not my brother. So long as I have you, that is all that matters.""Oh Onslow. I think I'd like that too."<br />
  70. 70. Naturally she accepted… <br />
  71. 71. After all of the drama between Oman and Onslow’s love lives was resolved, the remaining college years passed quickly.<br />
  72. 72. Back on the home front, Frank was still a child. And Yakko was proving that he made and awesome father.<br />~*~<br />"I wish they'd stay little forever."Like you were before you moved here?"Maybe. That seems so long ago."Do you regret it?"Not at all. I love my family. All of them."<br />
  73. 73. He even sat down with Jo and explained what her forgetfulness was doing to Frank’s psyche and managed to sort it out.<br />
  74. 74. So that when Frank aged, he was a happy and well-adjusted teen. Well, mostly. But we’ll get to that. <br />
  75. 75. Because before that, we have a slew of weddings to get through.<br />Up first were Doc and Oz.<br />
  76. 76. Followed by Kelvin and Burundi<br />
  77. 77. Fuzzy and Orkney…<br />
  78. 78. Onslow and Olive…<br />
  79. 79. And Osaka and Jace…<br />
  80. 80. Oman, well he had a trio of simselves all willing to throw themselves at him. <br />Making an executive decision, I decided that my simself would drop out of the running, much to her chagrin and my later headaches. Leaving Marina and Cee as a dual objects of his affection. <br />But we’ll get back to that…<br />
  81. 81. Then we have Frank, who showed he wasn’t as well adjusted as I hoped by heartfarting his sister-in-law…<br />
  82. 82. Make that sisters-in-law…<br />Eventually that was going to be an issue.<br />
  83. 83. But first there was a trip to Takemizu for the heir and his bride.<br />
  84. 84. Complete with inappropriate conversations in front of strange old men..<br />
  85. 85. And even more inappropriate groping of his wife…<br />
  86. 86. Not that she didn’t grope back. <br />In all, it was a good honeymoon and a productive one.<br />
  87. 87. Returning to the other kids, Onslow was offered a job by Rhys Fitzhugh in the criminal track which he took for a while but discovered that it wasn’t the way he wanted to take over the world. So he switched to Law instead. <br />
  88. 88. However there were worse things brewing on the horizon…<br />~*~<br />"Onslow should have never left me. I will show him just how dirty I can play."<br />
  89. 89. And dirty it was. The trash ended up in Liv developing Pnuemoniaa particularly nasty strain that she couldn’t seem to beat. <br />
  90. 90. On top of her illness, Oman also came around to try to gain some closure.<br />~*~<br />"Is Liv here? I need to talk to her.""She is... However I will be most put out if you distress her. Unfortunately I cannot stay, my car pool is here. I will have your word you will not upset her.""I'll do my best. I just want to talk. That's it.""I will hold you to that. She's inside having breakfast.""Thanks."<br />
  91. 91. I wanted to know what I did wrong? Why couldn't you love just me?""Are you sure you want to know the truth?""Yeah, I think I do. And even if I don't want to know, I need to know. I've been dwelling on this long enough that even Mum and Orkney have noticed. And the only way for me get out of this is to go through it.""I see. Okay here's the short version. I've always loved Onslow.“<br />"What? What about me then?""I loved you too. But I loved Onslow first. I stole his first kiss, you know.""No, I didn't know. So if you loved him first, why did you ever pursue me?"<br />
  92. 92. "Because I thought he wasn't interested. After I stole his first kiss he barely reacted at all. The only thing is did was blink and say 'Oh my' then walked away. What was I supposed to think? Then you came into my life and swept me off of my feet. How could I say no to that?""But you did.""Only after we got engaged, up until then you were really nice and attentive. After we got engaged I hardly saw you. I would come over and it would be Onslow who'd pay attention to me. Onslow who cared that I was there. Not you. You always had your nose stuck in a book.“<br />"But I was trying to do well so that when we started our life together you wouldn't have any hardships.""But you didn't tell me that. All I saw was the man I was going to marry growing more and more distant. And Onslow...""And Onslow what?""Onslow was really persistent. Apparently that kiss I gave him so long ago shocked feelings into him that he never even knew he had. And they were all for me. But by the time he got them sorted out, I was already dating you.""That didn't stop him from going after you.“<br />
  93. 93. "Actually it did. He loves you, you know. You're his brother and best friend. That's why he tried so hard to fall in love with Drea. But it didn't work. I think then he realized just how much I meant to him. And well you know Onslow. Single-minded is one adjective to describe him.""Yeah, I can see that. But what about you? You didn't have to fall in love with him.""I don't think I had any other choice really. It's very hard not to reciprocate when someone loves you so completely that their very soul radiates it. And with you growing more distant and Onslow more persistent, I couldn't help myself. My mind would tell me what I was doing was wrong, but it didn't stop my heart.""I see.""I am still sorry, Oman. I never wanted to hurt you. That's the one thing I regret the most. I hope that one day that you can forgive your brother and me. But I'm not going to live my life walking on eggshells because you got hurt. I've moved on. You need to too."<br />
  94. 94. "Liv! You're-""Pregnant? It happens, Oman. I'm really looking forward to being a mom and I don't think I've seen Onslow happier.""I guess you have moved on.""Yeah, I have."<br />
  95. 95. "Can I- can I touch it?""Of course you can. You're going to be its uncle.“<br />"I wish I were its father.""Don't go down that road, Oman. It only leads to darkness. Can't you just be happy for me? For us?""I don't know, Liv. Is it wrong that I am so jealous right now that I feel sick?“<br />
  96. 96. "Yes, it is wrong. You can be envious, but if you want this for yourself then you need to go out and find it. Don't sit around mooning over what might have been if you want this life for yourself you need to seize it with both hands and not let go.""I guess you're right, Liv.""Of course I am. I'm a woman. I'm always right. It's in the fine print. But did you get the answers you came for?“<br />"Yeah, I think I did. They may not have been the ones I wanted. But I got the answers I needed.""I'm glad. I hope that we can still be friends. I really do care about you, Oman.""I can try. I'm still not sure I can forgive what you and Onslow did. But at least I understand it better. For what it's worth, I'm sorry too.""I know you are. And I fogive you. I just hope you can find happiness one of these days.""Me too. Goodbye, Liv."<br />
  97. 97. Onslow topped his LTW and became the law…<br />As a point of Trivia, all of my houses were set to be played BEFORE the main house so that when the first kid was born and the generation with no promotions started I would have all of the career LTW kids permaplat. <br />Remember this, kids, I can’t have any promotions in any of the spare or main households from when the first kid in 2nd gen of the main house is born until the first kid in the 3rd gen is born. <br />
  98. 98. Still Onslow was as good of a father as he could be. He adored his eldest son, and the oldest of the generation, Koroneiki.<br />
  99. 99. I mean how could you resist this little one who looks remarkably like his father with his mother’s nose.<br />
  100. 100. I admit, I fell in love with the little tyke. <br />And Onslow was gone from the first moment that “Fathakor” came out of Kor’s mouth. <br />
  101. 101. "Neo cortex, frontal lobe...""Brainstem! Brainstem!""Hippocampus, neural node, right hemisphere...“<br />~*~<br />Still there was trouble in this domestic bliss..<br />
  102. 102. "Um Onslow?""Yes, Beloved?""I really need to tell you something. I'm sick. Really sick and have been for a while.""I see. Why didn't you tell me this earlier?""I didn't want to worry you.""How long has this been going on?""Since before Kor was born.""And you let yourself go through the strain of another pregnancy? Olive, are you sure this is wise?""I'll be okay. I just need lots of rest. I'll be better in no time.“<br />"I hope so, beloved. I don't know what I would do if I lost you.""You won't lose me, Onslow.""I love you, Olive. Sleep well and regain your strength.""'Kay."<br />
  103. 103. However other sims were enjoying domestic bliss a lot more. Doc and Oz are honestly very sweet together and very low maintenence their house is very easy and fun to play.<br />
  104. 104. And they have this little cutie, Joss Whedon Warner. He’s got a good mix of this mother and father in him.<br />
  105. 105. With a healthy bit of his grandfather, Yakko’s awesomeness thrown in. <br />
  106. 106. Kelvin and Burundi soon followed with twins, Ebony and Teak.<br />
  107. 107. And Osaka is happily pregnant, but hasn’t given birth yet. <br />
  108. 108. Which brings us back to the main house. Fuzzy got pregnant on the honeymoon and Orkney is trying to fulfill my base game bonus and get me an alien.<br />
  109. 109. However all plans of that got put on hold when I had not one, not two…<br />
  110. 110. But three babies.<br />Liberia, Lebanon and Latvia. <br />Lebanon is this generation’s Bad Apple and I am not going to bother trying to keep them separate for you at this point since they are all infants. <br />
  111. 111. Yakko also used the bone phone that was received in Orkney’s brief stint as a cult leader to get a zombie for our Uni bonus.<br />
  112. 112. Back to Oman.<br />He wooed Marina…<br />
  113. 113. … And Cee pretty much equally. Dating them both the same amount. <br />
  114. 114. Although some dates were less date-like…<br />~*~<br />"I've been working at the newspaper and they sent me out to cover a story on someone you know. Rhys FitzHugh.“<br />"Oh Rhys... What's he done now?" "Um nothing. He's the one that had something happen to him. His manager was killed at this benefit concert that he was putting on." "Benefit concert? Manager? Are we talking about the same Rhys FitzHugh here?" "Red head? Big nose? Fauxhawk? Rock God? I think so." "That sounds like Rhys. Minus the rock god bit. So his manager ended up dead any clue as to why?" "A few. Rhys has a his fair share of stalkers and fangirls. And I'm hearing rumors that his manager crossed one of the bigwigs in the local mob. But Rhys should be okay. You don't need to worry.“<br />“Something about all of this just strikes me as wrong. I know Rhys. I wrote him. And I just can't see him being the innocent bystander or victim. That just isn't Rhys. So there's got to be something else going on." "Like what?" "I don't know. But just be careful around him.”<br />
  115. 115. At the same time, Oman was confronted by his parents about his life and what he was doing with it…<br />~*~<br />“I don't know what I want." "Then you should figure that out right quick, Oman," Jo stated. <br />"What about beekeeping? I know that you wanted to do that when you were little. What about now?" "I think I kinda outgrew that, Dad-doo. I still love them. But I shelved that dream at the same time that I broke up with Liv. It was my dream with her. I wanted to keep bees and have a little farm for just the two of us and any family that we might have together. I can't even think of beekeeping without thinking of what might have been." "So you don't go for the exact dream, I can get that. But throwing the whole thing away, that seems kinda stupid to me.“<br />"I thought you wanted me to get over Liv and now you are telling me not to throw the whole dream away. It's all or nothing. Either I have the whole dream or I don't." "That doesn't make any sense. You didn't have Liv in your dream when you were little, why does she have to be in it now?" "She just does." "Now that's just plain dumb."<br />
  116. 116. In the end, Oman ended up choosing Cee as the woman who would replace Olive in his affections.<br />Although he made it very clear that he wasn’t interested in getting married and that the whole thought just made him sick. <br />
  117. 117. However that didn’t stop him from getting Cee pregnant.<br />
  118. 118. Although in his defense, it did take two to tango as it were. But even though he’s bought Cee a house to call her own he still hasn’t given her the one thing she wants.<br />
  119. 119. Back at the Main house, Frank realized that he couldn’t have what he wanted and that by staying around the house, he would be constantly exposed to things that he couldn’t have. Namely his sisters-in-law.<br />
  120. 120. So over a nice family dinner, he explained what his plans were to his family…<br />
  121. 121. And set off for University that night…<br />
  122. 122. Around the hood, Burundi and Kelvin had two more children.<br />
  123. 123. A boy and a girl named Gingko and Sumac.<br />
  124. 124. Also at this time, Olive was pregnant with her second child and very, very sick.<br />
  125. 125. It was around at this time, that Onslow received an unexpected guest…<br />~*~<br />"Long time. No see, Onslow.""Drea, what are you doing here?""You and I need to have a little chat. It's time that you learned the real results of Newton's third law.“<br />"You mean for 'Every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.' I fail to see how the laws of motion apply.""Oh, Onslow, you've always been so book smart. Too bad that didn't translate into how to treat a woman.“<br />"Apparently, I need to spell it out to you. I. Want. To. See. You. Suffer. It's just so entertaining.""And that applies to Newton, how?""When you cheated on me and threw me over for that tramp, Olive, that was the action. Do you follow?"<br />
  126. 126. "So what was the reaction? You showing up here? That hardly constitutes as an equal and opposite reaction.""Oh, don't tell me that you are really that stupid.""Apparently I am. I fail to see what the reaction you are referring to might be. Now if you will just show yourself out, I have things to do.“<br />"Would one of those things be caring for a sick wife?""What...""You heard me.“<br />"What do you know about that!? If you've done anything to hurt Olive... I'll... I'll...“<br />"You'll what? Cry like a baby? Putter around ineffectually? Good! That's the plan. It's high time you felt what it was like to have your heart torn out of your chest.""What have you done to my wife, woman?"<br />
  127. 127. "Nothing that she didn't deserve, that slut! She should have never been your wife! I should have. Now she's going to get her just desserts, as are you."<br />"And you think if Olive dies that I'll come crawling back to you? How naive.""This isn't about that. I've moved on. This is about revenge and it is something that is best savored. I've been watching you, Onslow. I know all about you.""How?""I have my ways. I have my informants. Do you think I am some kind of Bond villian to reveal everything? Pfft! I'm going to enjoy watching you crumble." She paused briefly, tilting her head to one side. "I wonder if I should make popcorn?""Get out of here! Before I strangle you where you stand!“<br />"Onslow, are you alright? I heard yelling," Liv asked from the dooway of the bedroom."Everything's fine, beloved. Go back and lay down. I will be in a moment. I just need to show someone the door."<br />"I can find my way out myself. Good luck with the wifey-poo. And the mewling brat she's carrying. It'd be a shame if anything were to happen to them. A crying shame. Goodbye for now, Onslow. I'll be seeing you. You can count on that."<br />
  128. 128. Right after Drea left, Olive went into labor for a second time…<br />
  129. 129. She no sooner handed off her son, Picholine, to Onslow…<br />
  130. 130. When her illness finally overcame her and she collapsed into a coma, much to Onslow and Kor’s distress.<br />
  131. 131. Seeing no other choice, Onslow made the hardest choice he had to in his life and approached his brother, Oman for help.<br />
  132. 132. He asked his big brother to take his eldest son and keep him safe. Oman, still upset over Onslow’s betrayal, initially refused. However Ceeput her foot down and told Oman that they were taking Kor.<br />
  133. 133. At the same time, she gave Onslow some soup she made to try to nurse Olive back to health. <br />
  134. 134. So now, Koroneiki is in the care of his uncle, Oman.<br />
  135. 135. As for Picholine, Pico for short. Onslow turned to his oldest sister, Burundi. <br />
  136. 136. Unlike, Oman’s house, Burundi and Kelvin were more than willing to hide Pico in their brood of kids. <br />
  137. 137. Relieved, Onslow handed off the newborn Pico to his new family and left with one more stop to go to before rushing home to his sick wife.<br />
  138. 138. He needed to tell his father what exactly transpired and that he had hidden his children to keep them safe from Drea’s revenge. He also passed on that Drea seemed to have spies watching the family and that it was possible that they might be service sims so to be wary. <br />His information passed on and comfort received, Onslow left to take care of Liv.<br />
  139. 139. Then we move on to Frank. <br />Frank was freshly, and I do mean that, at college when his parents dropped by for a little visit. <br />
  140. 140. Namely, Jo had set up a Bachelor Challenge for her son and had used the money she had earned as a celebrity chef to create a house for him and the winner. So even though Frank wasn’t totally sure that he was ready to get tied down to a girl he felt obligated to at least consider the girls his mother chose. Especially after she played the ‘I’m going to be dying soon’ card. <br />
  141. 141. So Frank went. And there were girls. Lots of very different girls…<br />
  142. 142. And to make things a little easier, I, as the director person, set the whole thing up as an alternate universe/dream world so that there would be no Boingings in the actual hood itself later on and that Yakko and Jo wouldn’t need to be old. <br />
  143. 143. The second part was happily celebrated…<br />
  144. 144. With the expected, or rather, unexpected results. <br />
  145. 145. Oh, but you want to know about the results of the challenge… Well okay.<br />It came down to these two girls – Mary Austen from Charris’ “The Regacy” and Star Walton from Orikes’ “A Pseudo Legacy.” A more disparate pair of girls you would not find. <br />However they got along swimmingly despite the fact that they were ostensibly competing for the same man, they didn’t act like that. <br />
  146. 146. And the girls weren’t sure that they wanted Frank to choose between them…<br />-*-<br />“Would it make you feel better if I told you that I am worried about Frank’s decision too. And not for the reason that you would believe.”<br />“Oh? So what would ruffle the unflappable Mary Austen?”<br />“The fact that no matter who wins we both lose. I don’t like losing.”<br />“And what would you be losing?”<br />“Your friendship.”<br />“Oh…”<br />
  147. 147. But in the end a choice had to be made and Mary was told that it wasn’t her.<br />-*-<br />“Why are you sorry? You picked the woman you wanted.”<br />“I picked one of them. I wanted you too, Mary. I just can’t have both. That isn’t fair to you or Star. I am not some sultan with a harem and I respect you and love you too much to belittle you like that. And more than anything, I don’t want lose you as a friend.”<br />“I understand, Mr. Warner.”<br />“Frank.”<br />“I understand, Frank.”<br />“So we’re good? You don’t hate me?”<br />“I don’t think that could be possible, Frank.”<br />Frank held the woman tighter to him, “Good. I don’t want to lose you.”<br />
  148. 148. And Star was told that she won…<br />-*-<br />“Star Walton, would you be willing to spend the rest of my life with me?”<br />“Are you asking me to marry you?”<br />“No. But I am asking that you let me love you and your quirks for foreseeable future.”<br />“I think that can be arranged.”<br />
  149. 149. My simself made sure that Frank was happy with his decision and revealed to him a hint of her powers…<br />-*-<br />I snagged Frank for a quick talk. “I wanted to make sure this is what you want. What you really want. Because I can fix it if it isn’t. I know you were pressured into this, and I know that you have a tendency to do what you think will please everyone else. So if this, if Star doesn’t make you happy…” I trailed off letting him draw what I hoped would be the right conclusions. <br />Frank stared at me in shock. His surprise evident in his posture. “I didn’t think that you could do that.”<br />“There’s a reason your father calls me ‘Director-person,’ Frank,” I pointed out.<br />“I guess that makes sense,” he said, half to himself. “But I’m okay. Really. Sure I was a little reluctant in the beginning. But…”<br />“But?”<br />“But, I think this was just what I needed.”<br />
  150. 150. I also made sure I filled in Star as to the rules of my universe…<br />-*-<br />“Since you are the winner I am assuming that you are coming back to Belladonna to be with Frank. Am I right?”<br />“That’s the plan,” she said warily. “Why are you bringing it up?”<br />“Well, I figured you would like a crash course on how my world works. Since it may be different from your own and well I have my quirks.”<br />Star snorted. “Who doesn’t.”<br />“Be nice. Do you want to know or not?”<br />
  151. 151. “Sure. Go ahead and tell me the rules. I can’t promised I’ll follow them though.”<br />I sobered. “You’re going to have to,” I said quietly. “Every one has to follow them.”<br />“You’re making me nervous. Why don’t you tell me without all of this dramatic preamble?”<br />“Fine. Here’s the deal. First, you’re going to die.”<br />“What?!”<br />“Relax, everyone will. Except for the people in the simself apartments. If you aren’t in one of them, you age and you die. Period. Second. The challenge comes first. That means that whatever rules the main house is restricted by at the moment the spare houses have to follow. This includes no service sims and no promotions for the time where promotions aren’t allowed.”<br />
  152. 152. “Geez! That doesn’t sound so bad anything else?”<br />“Just one thing. I don’t interfere in my sims lives. Their decisions are their own. Whatever they may be. So long as it doesn’t jeopardize the challenge, I won’t step in.”<br />“What are you saying?”<br />“I’m saying that you have to live with the consequences of your actions. All of my sims do. If you want an example of what I am talking about, I suggest you look up Frank’s brother, Oman or Onslow. Or talk to Cee sitting over there with your creator. They can better illustrate what I mean. <br />“Just so long as you don’t have a raving psycho vampire witch I am all good. You don’t have any of those do you?”<br />“No, no psycho vampire witches,” I answered, deliberately not mentioning Onslow’s former fiancée.<br />“Then we’re good.”<br />
  153. 153. The dreamworld party ended with the birth of Yakko and Jo’s 8th child, Israel. <br />
  154. 154. Then, Frank woke up. <br />Unsurprisingly, considering that it isn’t every day that you watch your supposedly about-to-die mother give birth to another child. Well, that and the phone was ringing. <br />
  155. 155. When he got to the phone, he got a bit of surprising news…<br />-*-<br />“Mum? What are you doing calling so late at night?”<br />“Well… Umm... I don’t know how to tell you this…”<br />“Mum you’re scaring me.”<br />“Oh you tell him, Yakko!” his mother’s voice said full of panic. “I can’t do it!”<br />Frank heard the phone change hands and his father’s voice came on. “Congratulations, Frank! You’re a big brother!”<br />“Wha—”<br />
  156. 156. Frank took it surprisingly well, all things considered.<br />And that is where we have left him.<br />So what else do I need to cover?<br />
  157. 157. Oh there are going to be some new faces in the hood. Namely imported versions of my Apocalypse Dorans. All of them are there, sans spouses, to interact with the family and generally be awesome.<br />
  158. 158. We also have my Round Robin Dorans complete with a bigfoot in the hood as well. You should be seeing some of them shortly. <br />
  159. 159. We also have a few new simselves in the hood…<br />Mac – my friend and Asylum Caretaker also a Sims3 Legacy player<br />Lauri – aka lauriempress – Writer of the Legacy of Jubilee<br />Lily – aka colbaltazure – writer of the An Apocalypse of Ice<br />Mie – aka Miehrynn – writer of Justice Lost and Curse of the Blue Flamingo<br />Jamie – aka DocGirlP – writer of the Bohemian Legacy<br />Katy – aka HurriKaty – writer of the Munster Legacy<br />Not pictured:<br />Rose – rosefyre – writer of the Buffyverse Apocalypse (she’s in a different house with three very special sims)<br />So really what more do you need to know?<br />
  160. 160. Orkney is still trying to get Alien pregnant…<br />
  161. 161. Onslow is alone with a very sick Olive…<br />
  162. 162. Oz is so badass that even cowplants are afraid of him…<br />
  163. 163. Drea is still around…<br />
  164. 164. And Yakko is still Awesome…<br />But that’s the end. You should know all you need to.<br />Until next time. Happy Simming!<br />Go ahead, pull his finger. I dare you.<br />
