Squeaky Clean Legacy 16.4: Little Knights and Ladies

  1. 1. The
last
)me
we
le,
the
Goodytwoshoes,
things
had
taken
a
decidedly
Arthurian
turn,
with
 Dinadan
Locks
of
Goldilocks and the Nine Heirs added
to
the
family.


 Nobody
seems
to
have
goAen
any
brighter,
however,
as
it’s
seldom
advisable
to
have
 snowball
fights
in
the
family
graveyard
in
your
jim
jams.
 ~~~~~~
 I’ve
added
a
bit
of
entertainment
to
this
chapter.
Since
we’re
in
reverse
gender
Pleasantview,
 you’ll
see
a
lot
of
cross
gendered
Maxis
townies.

See
if
you
can
recognize
them!




  2. 2. The
oldest
of
these
knightly
liAle
Goodytwoshoes
are
the
twins,
Parsifal,
on
 the
le,,
and
Gawaine,
on
the
right.
They
are,
for
the
most
part,
very
 good
friends.


  3. 3. They
are
also
fierce
compe)tors
in
learning‐‐

  4. 4. ‐‐in
arms‐‐

  5. 5. ‐‐and
in
general
chivalry
and
bravery.
 Gawaine:

Hah!

I
was
not
afraid
of
that
ghost,
Percy.

That
is
because
I
am
 the
eldest,
and
I
am
the
leader.
 You’re
also
the
one
with
the
red
ghost
sign
over
your
head.

  6. 6. Eggplant
juice?
 Parsifal:

I
do
not
wish
to
fall
behind
Gawaine
in
my
dedica)on
to
the
family’s
 honor
and
well‐being.


 Or,
more
simply,
behind
Gawaine.
 Parsifal:

Well.
.
.
Yes.

  7. 7. Their
liAle
brother,
Palomides,
is
being
looked
a,er
by
the
family
Servo,
 Killick.


 Killick
was
also
married
to
my
fi,h
genera)on
heiress,
Ruby,
but
that
was
so
 long
ago
that
Penelope
never
even
met
Ruby.

  8. 8. And
even
though
he
has
a
salty
vocabulary,
and
even
though
it
is
Talk
Like
A
 Pirate
Weekend,
Killick
is
able
to
tone
the
language
down
for
the
liAle
 ones.
 Killick:

‘Cos
there
were
this
bear,
see?

An
he
comed
out
thru
th’
brush
an’
 the
President
says,
“I
ain’t
gonna
shoot
this
bear
account
of
it
bein’
 small,
see?”

An’
the
bear
et
the
President
an’
it
lived
happy
ever
a,er.*
 *
Historically,
this
is
not
what
actually
happened.

  9. 9. Killick:

An’
it’s
bloody
(*&%^*in’
lucky
for
you,
m’
lad,
which
it
is
acceptable
 to
use
*(&%^%&

whatever
words
I
like
to
felines
acos
they
don’t
go
 repea)n’
it,
see,
or
you
wouldn’
get
talked
to
half
so
much.
 Smores:

Rrrrow.

  10. 10. With
Killick,
the
two
cats,
Dinadan,
Penelope,
and
the
three
boys,
it’s
 impossible
to
try
for
a
much‐wanted
liAle
girl.

And
so
genera)on
Seven
 heiress
Sophia
moves
out
with
her
husband,
the
former
Jack
Buccaneer
 of
the
Pira3cal Legacy,
for
a
pleasant
early
re)rement.

  11. 11. And
maybe
nothing
much
has
changed.

 Pamela
Wade:

You
just
strolled
in
as
if
you
own
the
place.
 Jack:

Your
es)ma)on
is
not
en)rely
incorrect,
as
in
point
of
fact
I
did
own
this
place
and
 live
in
the
adjoining
domicile.

I
am
so
assured
that
I
am
welcome
at
all
)mes
in
my
 daughter’s
and
son‐in‐law’s
residence
that
I
feel
it
would
be
troublesome
to
impose
 an
actual
request
on
their
aAen)on.
 Pamela:

Oh.

I
see.


  12. 12. Dinadan
is
much
more
interested
in
the
opportunity
to
Try
For
Baby.
 We’ve
married
in
other
husbands
who
were
eager
to
Try
For
Baby
because
 my
heiresses
are
only
allowed
to
Try
For
Baby
and
it
is
the
only
WooHoo
 they
get.

Dinadan,
however,
really
wants
the
actual
baby.

Six
 Grandchildren.

Argh.

  13. 13. Congratula)ons!

Though
I
s)ll
don’t
understand
the
ques)on
mark.

In
the
 Sims,
anyway,
if
you
have
to
ask
the
ques)on,
you
already
know
the
 answer.
 We’re
going
to
take
advantage
of
Penelope’s
early
pregnancy
right
now.

  14. 14. ‐‐and
open
up
the
ice
cream
parlor,
Rose
Ice
Cream.

This
is
similar
to
the
store
my
 heiresses
ran
in
Old
Pleasantview,
but
of
course
Penelope
has
to
build
it
up
 again
from
scratch.

 I
suppose
we
don’t
really
have
to,
but
it’s
customary
for
my
heiress
to
own
a
Level
 Ten
business
and
for
her
husband
to
run
at
least
one
business,
the
family
toy
 store.

And
we
must
maintain
tradi)on.

  15. 15. This
brings
back
old
memories
of
Penelope’s
great‐grandmother
Ruby
doing
 exactly
the
same
thing.
 You’ll
no)ce
she’s
bellowing
almost
into
the
ear
of
the
Sim
Doc
Nerd
calls
 Jerky
Jake,
who
has
made
the
life
of
Cassidy
Ve)nari
so
miserable.

Here,
 he
is
employed
full
)me
by
the
ice
cream
store.
 I’ll
leave
it
to
you
to
decide
if
that’s
a
fifng
punishment.

  16. 16. I
did
not
understand
this
reporter
at
all.

For
one
thing,
I
didn’t
recognize
her
 as
a
reporter
at
first.

For
another,
she
gave
Rose
Ice
Cream
the
Best
of
 the
Best
Award
AND
a
nega)ve
review.

Maybe
she
has
a
Life)me
Movie
 Channel
psychological
condi)on.

We
may
never
know.

  17. 17. Penelope:

Hmm.  I think I recognize him.
 Recognize
him?

How
about
the
blond
townie
back
there?

  18. 18. Penelope:

Ice
cream,
Mr.
Legacina?

Big
stupid
expensive
pink
bear?



  19. 19. Ian
Legacina:

Um,
no
thanks.

Look,
I
don’t
like
being
pressured
to
do
 anything.

Life’s
tough
enough,
you
know?

Just
let
me
look
at
the
ice
 cream
and
maybe
I’ll
buy
some,
but
really,
I’m
here
to
live
a
nice
quiet
 life
and
to
be
let
alone.



  20. 20. Ulysses,
Penelope’s
brother,
shows
up
to
toss
the
ice
cream
parlor
a
few
stars,
 which
is
also
tradi)onal—and
nice
of
him,
considering
he
can
only
shop
at
 night.
 You
may
recognize
Stanley
Legacy
of
the
Victorian Legacy
behind
him.

Can
you
 iden)fy
the
guy
in
the
track
suit?

  21. 21. Killick
has
a
thankless
life,
so
I
thought
he
deserved
a
treat
and
a
bit
of
love.
 Pamela:

Whoosh.
Cold.

  22. 22. She
does
look
cold.

And
once
again,
Killick
has
fallen
in
love
with
a
BV
 townie,
so
you
can’t
simply
invite
her
over,
oh,
no,
she
has
to
stay
for
a
 minimum
of
three
days.


 Maybe
I’ll
let
him
do
it
when
the
kids
are
grown
up.

  23. 23. Ah,
baby
)me.
 Penelope:

By
the
fourth
)me,
there
aren’t
any
surprises.

  24. 24. Well,
it
always
seems
to
make
Dinadan
happy.

  25. 25. He’s
cheering,
he
doesn’t
care
if
it’s
a
boy
or
a
girl.
.
.
 Dinadan:

I
want
six!

Or
more!

  26. 26. Penelope:

Let’s
call
her
Elaine.
 Dinadan:

Elaine.

That’s
beau)ful.

  27. 27. I’m
awfully
pleased
that
you
have
a
girl,
though,
and‐‐
 Dinadan:

About
that,
Professor.
 Um.
.
.yes?
 Dinadan:

I
would
have
been
happy
if
Elaine
had
been
a
boy,
but
just
possibly
you
 might
not
have
been.

In
fact,
there
may
have
been
some
shenanigans.
 Could
I
bribe
you
to
say
otherwise?
 Dinadan:

I’m
unbribable,
you
know
that.

But
if
there
were
another
baby,
I
might
 develop
a
selec)ve
memory.



  28. 28. It’s
more
than
)me
to
meet
some
of
the
other
neighborhood
children
and
 see
some
birthdays.


 First,
over
at
LyAon’s
house,
his
grandson
Albert
is
about
to
grow
up.

Both
of
 the
Goodytwoshoes
boys
and
Ulysses’
daughter
Nausicaa
are
invited.

  29. 29. You
may
remember
Victoria’s
husband
Adrian,
who
did
the
honors.

It
was
a
 nice
break
from
gefng
him
20
Best
Friends.

  30. 30. Albert
looks
a
lot
like
his
mother,
Victoria,
and
like
his
grandmother,
the
 Simself
RubyBlue.

  31. 31. And
of
course
it
was
nice
for
him
to
play
with
his
cousins.



  32. 32. Although
Gawaine
was
busy
elsewhere.

  33. 33. I
keep
looking
at
Albert
and
thinking
he’s
named
“Stuart,”
and
then
I
 remember
Stuart
is
in
Dicreasy’s
Victorian Legacy,
and
then
I
think
I’ve
 become
completely
lost.

  34. 34. At
the
Midlock’s,
liAle
Lenore
is
the
center
of
aAen)on
for
everybody‐‐

  35. 35. Her
vampire
aun)e
Lucy‐‐

  36. 36. Her
plantsim
grandfather,
Appius‐‐

  37. 37. But
most
of
all
for
her
mother
Carmilla.

  38. 38. Carmilla
really
is
an
affec)onate
mother.

  39. 39. Though
she
is
also
just
affec)onate,
period.

In
point
of
fact,
she
has
been
 going
for
WooHoo
20
Sims,
which
would
be
impossible
in
the
main
 house.

  40. 40. While
the
large
gi,s
of
electronics
are
much
appreciated,
I
wish
we
had
 thought
to
leave
the
service
staff
for
last.

Now
it
is
very
difficult
to
have
 anyone
over
without
)cking
someone
off.

  41. 41. Some
of
Mommy’s
boyfriends
are
class
acts
and
like
playing
with
Lenore,
 though.

  42. 42. Like
Rhys
Fitzhugh.

Rhys
could
easily
have
been
Lenore’s
daddy,
if
things
had
 gone
another
way,
so
it’s
nice
that
he’s
willing
to
be
a
sort
of
stepdaddy.
 (Note:

this
does
not
make
me
a
Rhys
fangirl.)

  43. 43. Her
actual
daddy
is
Stanley
Legacy,
and
now
that
she
is
older,
it
is
gefng
 harder
and
harder
for
Carmilla
to
date
and
not
upset
Lenore.

  44. 44. In
the
last
Roman
chapter,
Marcus
referred
to
a
friend
from
school
who
had
 to
be
le,
behind
so
the
Marius
family
could
go
off
and
get
Marcus’
 mommy
and
daddy
hitched.
 That
was
not
what
it
sounded
like.

  45. 45. This
was
the
last
)me
you
saw
him—Bunthorne,
the
son
of
Heather
Huffington
 and
BarreA
Goodytwoshoes.
 BarreA’s
from
the
extremely
aesthe)c
branch
of
the
family,
descended
from
Cecil
 and
LyAon’s
brother
De
Beers
and
the
Simself
MichelleFobbs,
and
from
his
 son
Dante
Gabriel,
and


  46. 46. Oops.


 You
know
how
bad
it
makes
you
feel
when
a
Sim
gets
old
or
dies
because
you
 haven’t
been
paying
aAen)on.

Well,
it’s
much
worse
when
it’s
a
Simself.

 MichelleFobbs,
the
author
of
the
Planetary Apocalypse,
got
dibsies
on
De
 Beers
and
has
been
in
my
game
for
at
least
a
year
and
a
half.

She
was
playing
 with
the
baby
when
Grim
came
calling
and
Brutus
came
to
take
the
baby
from
 her.



  47. 47. This
makes
me
feel
even
worse,
because
De
Beers
has
always
been
a
quiet,
 shy,
and
affec)onate
husband,
devoted
to
his
art
and
to
his
family,
and
 he
was
wrecked.

  48. 48. DG
wasn’t
much
beAer
losing
his
mother.

  49. 49. BarreA
was
very
upset,
too.

  50. 50. De
Beers:

*snf*
LyAon?
 Good
idea.

I
can’t
think
of
anyone
beAer
to
call
than
your
sympathe)c
 younger
brother
LyAon.

  51. 51. In
fact,
the
only
Sim
who
was
largely
unaffected
was
this
young
man.

  52. 52. And
that’s
probably
as
it
should
be.

He
was
only
a
baby
when
Great
 Grandma
died,
even
though
it’s
prac)cally
the
first
thing
he
remembers.

  53. 53. It’s
a
guy‐heavy
house.

Heather
is
the
only
lady
there
now.

Although
it’s
 compensated
for
a
bit
by
the
fact
that
all
the
guys
are
very
aesthe)c,
 artsy,
and
fashionable
guys.


  54. 54. It
must
be
admiAed
that
Grandpa
Brutus
is
sloppy
enough
to
burp
the
 Na)onal
Anthem
and
think
it
was
hilarious,
but
on
the
other
hand,
he
 wears
a
toga
with
style
and
loves
to
play
with
children.

  55. 55. And
there
is
no
one
beAer
than
Grandpa
DG
to
teach
Bunthorne
to
talk.

He
 loves
to
talk
and
to
hear
himself
talk.

Or
be
talked
about.

We’ll
see
if
 the
character
trait
rubs
off.



  56. 56. De
Beers:

Blow
out
the
candles
on
your
cake!

  57. 57. Bunthorne:

My
candles.

My
cake.

Mine.
 De
Beers:

It’s
not
all
yours!
 Bunthorne:

Mine.

  58. 58. But
he’s
cute,
isn’t
he?

So
what
if
he’s
maxed
playful
and
Mean?

Just
don’t
 tell
Brutus,
or
he
will
Encourage
Bunthorne
to
be
Nice.
 So
now
that
you’re
met
the
other
children
in
the
family,
it’s
)me
to
get
back
 to
the
main
house.
.
.


  59. 59. For
a
birthday
party.

 Oops.

I
o,en
don’t
no)ce
the
Fear
of
a
Party
un)l
it’s
too
late.

  60. 60. Palomides:

Yay!

I’m
big!
I
get
to
be
a
knight
now!

  61. 61. Parsifal:

Just
one
moment,
dear
brother.

Of
course
you
would
like
to
be
a
knight,
 but
such
an
honor
is
not
to
be
had
for
the
asking.
 Palomides:

It
isn’t?
 Parsifal:

Indeed
no.

One
must
ask—have
I
the
strength?

The
purity
of
character?

 The
custom
content?

And
alas,
you
do
not
have
the
custom
content.
 Palomides:

So.
.
.
If
I
can’t
be
a
knight,
what
can
I
be?

  62. 62. Palomides:

But
I
don’t
wanna!
 Parsifal:

I
am
stopping
my
ears,
younger
brother.

What
must
be,
must
be.

  63. 63. Palomides:

Oh,
man.

This
is
sucky
and
it
sucks.

  64. 64. Gawaine:

What’s
this?

I
thought
Percy
explained
to
you
that
you
can’t
be
a
 knight.

There’s
not
enough
CC
for
you
and
so
you
simply
have
to
be
a
 dragon.
 Palomides:

Tough.

  65. 65. Gawaine:

Don’t
be
unreasonable.

You
don’t
MATCH.

You
can’t
be
a
knight
if
 you
don’t
match.
 Palomides:

Who
said
so?
 Gawaine:

I
said
so,
and
I’m
the
oldest
and
I’m
named
a,er
the
greatest
 knight
of
Arthur’s
court,
so
what
I
say
goes.

  66. 66. Palomides:

Well,
I’m
a
Saracen
knight,
so
I
can
dress
how
I
want
to.

And
I
 bet
if
you
asked
Daddy
he
would
say
you
have
to
treat
me
just
the
same
 and
that
everybody
can
be
a
knight
or
nobody
can
be
a
knight
at
all.

  67. 67. Gawaine:

Oh,
all
RIGHT.

You
can
be
a
Knight.

But
first
you
have
to
go
 through
a
terrifying
ordeal.
 Percy:

Why?

We
didn’t
have
a
terrifying
ordeal.

Knights
have
to
have
purity
 of
heart
and
be
truthful
and
have
a
sense
of
jus)ce
and
it
doesn’t
seem
 fair
for
Palomides
to
have
an
ordeal
that.
.
.
 Gawaine:

Shut
UP,
Percy.

  68. 68. Gawaine:

In
that
case.
.
.

 Welcome
to
the
Armory,
Palomides.


 Palomides:

Whoa.
 Gawaine:

Daddy
let
us
have
it
as
long
as
we
promised
to
be
good
knights
 and
to
help
Mom
and
Elaine.

  69. 69. And
so
Palomides’
training
began
right
away.


  70. 70. And
soon
it
was
as
though
he
had
always
been
there—sleeping
in
the
room
 with
his
older
brothers,
training
with
them‐‐

  71. 71. Gossiping
about
their
cousin
Nausicaa—wait,
that
doesn’t
seem
very
 chivalrous.
 Gawaine:

I’m
not
saying
anything
MEAN,
I’m
saying
Nausicaa
is
coming
over
 today.

  72. 72. Which
turned
out
to
be
true.

  73. 73. In
fact,
all
the
cousins
were
invited
over
on
the
last
day
of
Gawaine
and
 Parsifal’s
childhood.

  74. 74. Some
of
them,
including
Bunthorne,
had
already
come
over
as
friends
from
 school
and
were
friends
already.

  75. 75. Albert
and
Parsifal
were
already
very
good
friends
and
close
to
being
best
 friends.
 Parsifal:

It’s
because
he
wears
the
white
lily
of
a
blameless
life.

  76. 76. And
there
is
always
fishing
to
get
people
to
make
friends.
 Just
a
reminder
of
what
the
Goodytwoshoes
fish
pond
looks
like‐‐

  77. 77. This.

  78. 78. It’s
only
funny‐‐

  79. 79. ‐‐un)l
somebody
catches
a
boot.
 And
then
I
let
them
do
something
my
Goodytwoshoes
children
never,
ever
have
 before.

  80. 80. It
seems
odd
that
every
Goodytwoshoes
husband
has
to
earn
a
Gold
 Toymaking
badge,
and
yet
the
children
don’t
get
to
play
with
the
toys.

 I’ve
been
loosening
up
a
bit
and
lefng
them
be
kids.

And
this
is
the
first
 )me
anyone
has
played
with
a
Water
Wiggler,
instead
of
just
making
 them.
First
it
was
just
Parsifal
and
Albert‐‐

  81. 81. Then
Gawaine
and
Palomides
joined
in‐‐

  82. 82. Then
Nausicaa‐‐

  83. 83. And
finally
the
yard
was
full
of
wet,
laughing
children.

  84. 84. A,er
a
day
like
that,
some
of
the
children
were
the
best
of
friends.

  85. 85. And
they
were
cold
enough
to
need
some
cocoa,
but
very
happy.
 Parsifal:

That
was
fun!

I
bet
nobody
else
has
that
much
fun
in
the
water!

 Not
even
at
the
beach!

  86. 86. Cecil:

Perhaps.
 You?

Almost
everyone
has
forgoAen
about
you,
Cecil.

Where
are
you,
 anyway?
 Cecil:

That
is
immaterial,
Professor.

Cecilia
and
I
are
on
our
travels
for
her
 health
and
all
is
going
exceedingly
well.

  87. 87. Cecil:

I
repeat:

All
is
going
exceedingly
well.

  88. 88. Lucy:

Geez,
you’re
tense,
Max.

When
you
die,
they’re
going
to
have
to
put
on
 your
grave
“Here
stands
Max
Goodytwoshoes.”
 Max:

Grandpapa
called.
He
said
“all
is
going
exceedingly
well.”

I
have
no
idea
 what
“all
is
going
exceedingly
well”
means
in
his
mind.

I
worry
about
Mama
if
 he
refuses
to
face—OW!
 Lucy:

Don’t
be
a
crybaby,
Max,
it’s
good
for
you.

  89. 89. Max
and
Lucy—and
Ulysses,
and
a
few
other
family
members—were
invited
 to
Gawaine
and
Parsifal’s
birthday.
 Gawaine:

I
am
the
oldest.

I
hope
that’s
evident.

  90. 90. Parsifal:

All
right.

I
will
wait.

You
can
go
first.
 Gawaine:

Already
am!

  91. 91. Gawaine:

Already
did!

  92. 92. And
when
the
dust
had
seAled,
both
of
them
had
rolled
Popularity.
 Jack
and
Sophia
were
on
the
invita)on
list,
of
course,
not
that
Jack
requires
an
 invita)on.


  93. 93. Gawaine:

Definitely
yes.

  94. 94. Gawaine
rolled
the
want
to
Be
The
Law,
which
is
just
so
him,
it
boggles
my
 mind.

  95. 95. Parsifal,
on
the
other
hand—
 Parsifal:

I
see
no
reason
why
my
strength
and
purity
of
heart
should
not
 make
me
an
excellent
athlete.
 I’m
s)ll
not
convinced
that
Popularity
is
right
for
him,
but
since
he
always
 does
what
Gawaine
does,
perhaps
the
dice
know
best.

  96. 96. And
a,er
all
the
excitement,
the
boys
re)red
to
the
Armory,
and
all
was
as
it
 had
been
before.

  97. 97. Also,
now
that
the
boys
are
over,
they
can
be
invited
over
to
Uncle
Ulysses’
 house
to
get
to
know
him
when
he
is
awake
and
stay
there
)ll
all
hours,
 hogging
his
hot
tub
and
bragging
about
their
birthday
party.
 Ulysses:

Lucky
me.

  98. 98. Ulysses
is
like
his
sister
Penelope—shy.
So
his
life
is
mostly
about
his
job
and
 his
children.

He
has
two
liAle
alien
kids.

This
is
Telemachus.

  99. 99. He’s
been
able
to
raise
Telemachus
and
train
him
in
his
toddler
skills
by
 taking
advantage
of
irregular
todder
sleep
hours.

  100. 100. It’s
a
bit
tougher
for
children,
but
Nausicaa
o,en
gets
up
at
four
or
five
in
the
 morning,
since
she
has
a
very
high
energy
bed.

Then
she
and
her
daddy
are
 able
to
talk
and
play
before
he
has
to
go
to
his
coffin
and
she
has
to
go
to
 school.
 None
of
this
would
be
possible
without
Uncle
Achilles
being
around
during
the
 day,
making
dinner
and
running
baths
and
playing
Pimp
Viking.

  101. 101. You
can
never
be
quite
sure
that
Ulysses
isn’t
going
to
do
something
 hammer‐headed
and
die,
and
yet
he
isn’t
happy
if
he
just
lies
around— well,
under—the
house.

I
let
him
work
towards
his
second
LTW
for
no
 good
reason
other
than
it
made
him
happy.

  102. 102. The
Goodytwoshoes
cousins
were
invited
over
for
Nausicaa
and
Telemachus’
 birthdays,
and
Nausicaa
became
Best
Friends
with
Palomides‐‐

  103. 103. Even
though
he
is
a
mean
liAle
jerk
and
kept
clocking
her
with
baseballs.

  104. 104. Gawaine’s
too
old
to
clock
her
anymore
right
now,
but
he’s
not
above
 admonishing
her,
which
I’m
sure
gets
really
old,
really
fast.

  105. 105. No
maAer
how
preAy
he
is,
Gawaine
always
looks
as
though
he
knows
best
 because
he
is
the
Best
of
the
Knights

(he’s
the
oldest,
remember?)

  106. 106. And
Parsifal
admonishes
because
he
has
the
moral
purity
of
ten,
and
in
 general
they
can
both
become
a
liAle
irrita)ng.

  107. 107. I
think
with
Gawaine,
it’s
partly
older‐brother
syndrome.



  108. 108. Which
some)mes
is
its
own
punishment.

  109. 109. At
last
it’s
sundown,
and
)me
for
the
birthday
party,
and
it’s
a
full
house,
 with
Jack
(walking
away
from
the
camera)
all
three
knightly
 Goodytwoshoes
boys,
the
Terror
Twins,
Max,
Doc
Nerd,
Donna
Lothario,
 and
a
few
others.

  110. 110. Ready
to
grow
up,
Nausicaa?
 Nausicaa:

Yep.

  111. 111. Nice
looking,
but
the
dress
has
got
to
go.
 You’ll
no)ce
that
Penelope
and
Victoria’s
younger
sister
Regina
was
invited.

 That’s
important,
as
Regina
is
the
Goodygirls
placeholder
and
it’s
never
 too
soon
to
work
on
gefng
in.



  112. 112. Ulysses:

Who’s
the
girl
in
the
bathing
suit?
 Don’t
know,
just
some
random
townie.

Let’s
let
Telemachus
blow
out
his
 candles.

  113. 113. Carmilla:

Awesome!

Whoo!
 Donna
Lothario:

At
least
a
9.5!

  114. 114. As
you
can
see
Telemachus
grew
up
well,
and
very
happy.
 And
his
growing
up
is
almost
immediately
upstaged.

  115. 115. Evidently
Doc
Nerd
got
)red
of
wai)ng
for
Ulysses
to
make
a
move,
and
she
 has
a
point.



  116. 116. This
means
that
Ulysses
is
in
love
for
the
first
)me
in
his
life,
so
there
are
no
 give‐backs,
Doc.

  117. 117. So
far,
she
doesn’t
seem
to
mind.

  118. 118. Ulysses:

I
worry
about
the
implica)ons
of
this.
 Lucy:

Hey!

Ulysses
is
HOT!
 Too
late,
Lucy.

  119. 119. Ulysses:

OK,
um,
Dad—I
hadn’t
exactly
prepared
for
this
possibility.

I’ve
got
 two
kids,
and
I’m
a
vampire—I
can’t
offer
a
really
normal
life,
and
yet
 maybe
I
should
ask
her
to
marry
me.

Maybe
that’s
what
she
expects.

 Maybe
she’ll
be
upset
if
I
don’t
or
even
more
upset
if
I
do,
or
‐‐

  120. 120. Doc:

‘Scuse
me,
gents,
my
ears
are
burning.
 Jack:

As
I
was
about
to
state
before
this
young
lady
made
her
appearance,
 perhaps
it
would
be
wise
to
ascertain
her
wishes
in
an
open
ended
manner.
 Ulysses:

Um.
.
.
?
 Jack:

Ask
her
what
she
wants.

  121. 121. DocNerd:

Why,
I
would
like
to
be
a
werewolf!

Thanks
for
asking!
 Which
I
suppose
is
Knowledge
Sim
for
“let’s
take
this
rela)onship
slowly.”

  122. 122. I
think
Nausicaa
is
really
preAy.

I
just
wish
she
hadn’t
rolled
Pleasure
with
an
 LTW
of
50
Dream
Dates.

I
don’t
think
it
suits
a
Pisces
Sim
who
has
zero
 Outgoing
points,
five
Playful,
and
ten
Nice,
but
what
do
I
know.

Maybe
 she
just
needs
to
find
the
right
Sim.

  123. 123. It’s
too
soon
to
know
what
Telemachus
wants
to
be
when
he
grows
up,
but
 he’s
got
a
less
extreme
personality
than
his
sister:
Cancer,
one
Outgoing
 point,
six
Playful
and
eight
nice.



  124. 124. At
another
Goodytwoshoes
house,
LyAon
is
bonding
with
his
grandson
 Albert‐‐

  125. 125. ‐‐And
Albert’s
father
Adrian
is
working
on
that
20
Best
Friend
LTW.

He
got
 three
cross
gendered
Maxis
townies
this
)me!

Guess
who
they
are.
 Legacy
Sims
also
make
their
appearance.

  126. 126. It’s
always
fun
to
find
out
what
careers
imported
Legacy
Sims
have
gone
into.

 It
looks
as
though
Rhys
is
in
the
military‐‐

  127. 127. And
Apollo
Bohemian
is
in
Science.

I
changed
him
into
his
regular
clothes
 using
InSim,
or
else
I
wouldn’t
have
recognized
him
at
all.

  128. 128. Ready
to
put
childish
things
behind
you,
Albert?
 Albert:

OK.

  129. 129. Albert:

But
I
wish
you
would
tell
him
to
get
out
of
the
shot.
 Apollo:

I’m
in
ur
party
stealin’
ur
focus!

  130. 130. Carmilla
was
also
invited
and
was
delighted
that
Rhys
was
there.
 Albert:

It’s
my
birthday?

Anyone?

  131. 131. No
worries,
Albert.

Everyone
knows
that.
 Albert
rolled
Popularity,
20
Best
Friends,
like
his
father.
With
both
Gawaine
 and
Parsifal
also
Pop
Sims,
a
certain
picture
is
star)ng
to
emerge.

  132. 132. Now
that
Albert
is
grown
up,
it
seemed
like
a
good
idea
to
start
doing
some
 family
portraits.

There
is
only
one
problem
with
this—I
s)nk
at
using
 pose
boxes.

  133. 133. Maybe
a
second
problem—taking
a
picture
in
a
group
containing
three
Pop
 Sims
is
fraught
with
difficul)es.

And
it
was
extremely
difficult
to
pose
 Adrian,
in
par)cular‐‐

  134. 134. ‐‐so
much
so
that
I
may
have
become
a
)ny
bit
frustrated.

  135. 135. Never
mind.

They
make
a
charming
family
group.

  136. 136. Over
at
the
aesthe)c
house,
Heather
achieved
her
LTW
to
reach
the
top
of
 the
slacker
career,
thus
making
it
possible
for
me
to
ignore
her.

DG
also
 pulled
a
really,
really
good
chance
card.

  137. 137. DG:

Who
said
the
military
didn’t
suit
me?
 Evidently
the
Sims
military
suits
you
fine.

  138. 138. Bunthorne:

Alas.
 Sadly,
Bunthorne
may
have
inherited
some
of
Grandpa’s
speech
paAerns,
too.
 Bunthorne:

Well,
how
would
you
react
to
a
mediocre
grade?

  139. 139. Telemachus
came
over
as
a
friend
from
school.

I
love
seeing
how
happy
they
 are
to
make
friends.

  140. 140. Bunthorne
startled
me,
though,
by
rolling—not
Pop,
nor
Romance,
not
even
 Knowledge
like
Great‐Grandpa
De
Beers‐‐

  141. 141. Fortune.

Hall
of
Famer.

He’s
sloppy
and
maxed
Playful
and
really
mean,
and
 it
doesn’t
really
fit
with
the
aesthe)c
and
ar)s)c
heritage
of
his
family,

 but
Fortune
might
work
for
a
Sim
who
is
going
to
inherit
an
art
gallery.

  142. 142. Bunthorne:

If
you
are
going
to
capitalize
on
my
features
by
making
a
 calendar,
I
will
insist
on
gefng
a
cut.

  143. 143. Carmilla
is
s)ll
gefng
along
well
with
Lenore,
but
it’s
gefng
trickier.

In
fact,
 Lenore
once
no)ced
that
Mommy
was
on
a
date
with
someone
other
 than
Daddy,
and
started
to
cry.

I
suppose
what
works
for
adults
doesn’t
 always
work
so
well
for
kids.

  144. 144. Mrs.
C
:
That
is
because
you
are
a
naughty,
naughty
young
woman!


 Carmilla:

Look,
Mrs.
C,
I
don’t
want
to
have
to
open
up
a
can
of
whoopass
on
 you.

  145. 145. Carmilla:

But
I
will
if
I
have
to.
 Mrs.
C
can’t
leave
Carmilla
alone.

It’s
the
blowback
from
using
the
Wishing
 Well
too
much.

Normally
Carmilla
gets
along
well
with
male
Romance
 Sims.

  146. 146. Naturally,
Cassius
had
to
come
over,
introduce
himself‐‐

  147. 147. ‐‐and
pick
a
fight.

By
the
)me
I
had
Carmilla
ask
him
to
leave,
they
were
 below
‐20
and
she
had
the
op)ons
to
Fight
and
Buy
Off
With
$50.

  148. 148. Can
I
state
again,
for
the
record,
that
I
hate
this?

I
don’t
care
that
they’re
 high‐chemistry
Romance
Sims,
Eaxis,
they
HATE
each
other.

Cassius
isn’t
 even
going
to
remember
this,
De,
so
don’t
hate
him
for
it.

I
took
most
of
 my
Squinge
hacks
out,
but
I
miss
Less
Roman)c
Greet
and
Goodbye.

  149. 149. Carmilla
has
been
restric)ng
her
da)ng
to
when
Lenore
is
in
bed
or
in
school,
 and
by
now,
Lenore
is
bringing
home
friends.

  150. 150. Like
this
one.
 Zane:

Hey,
Lenore,
do
you
have
to
be
so
mean?

I
just
wanted
to
be
your
 friend!

  151. 151. Lenore:

Do
that
again.
 Believe
me,
Lenore,
in
the
Devereaux Legacy
Zane
is
all
too
familiar
with
this
 kind
of
thing,
but
I
don’t
really
think
he
misses
it.

  152. 152. I
could
be
wrong,
though.

Zane
got
tons
of
Aspira)on
points
for
almost
every
 single
interac)on,
including
the
ones
in
which
Lenore
kicked
him
in
the
 head.
 Zane:

I
got
to
make
friends
with
a
mean
and
difficult
girl!

YAY!

  153. 153. Lenore,
in
fact,
makes
a
habit
of
invi)ng
liAle
boys
home,
kicking
the
stuffing
 out
of
them‐‐

  154. 154. And
ending
up
with
a
nice
big
hug.

  155. 155. Finally,
it’s
)me
for
Lenore’s
birthday.

You’ll
no)ce
Daddy
Stanley
was
 invited,
of
course,
as
well
as
Penelope‐‐

  156. 156. And
Ulysses,
as
a
long)me
friend
of
the
family.
 Ulysses:

I
was
vamped
in
this
very
house!

  157. 157. Make
a
wish,
Lenore,
and
grow
up
to
be.
.
.
.

  158. 158. Family?
 That’s
as
out
of
sync
with
her
family
as
Fortune
is
for
Bunthorne’s.

There
 haven’t
been
any
Family
Sims
in
Lenore’s
family,
ever—just
Knowledge,
 and
recently
more
Pleasure
and
Romance.

She
also
wants
to
Graduate
 Three
Children
From
College—how
is
she
going
to
do
that
and
keep
up
 the
family’s
supernatural
tradi)ons?

  159. 159. Oh
well,
that’s
a
worry
for
another
day.
 Stanley:

I
can’t
believe
how
grown
up
and
preAy
you
look!
 Stanley
mostly
has
the
Komei
face
template,
and
Carmilla
has
Ben
Long’s,
and
the
 results
ARE
preAy,
thanks
very
much.

Mean,
yes,
but
preAy.

  160. 160. She’s
also
quickly
inducted
into
the
family
rock
band,
the
Counsels
of
 Despera)on.

  161. 161. The
family
is
so
mean
that
they
are
constantly
spying
on
the
neighbors,
and
 all
the
slapping
is
aggrava)ng
Mor)cia
Goth’s
arthri)s.

The
only
way
to
 make
them
stop
is
to
have
them
playing
instruments
whenever
they’re
 awake.

  162. 162. Plus
Lenore
makes
a
cute
girl
drummer.

  163. 163. Back
at
Legacy
Main,
Penelope
is
enjoying
herself
as
only
a
pregnant
 Knowledge
Sim
can—wandering
the
grounds
late
at
night,
looking
for
 ghosts.

  164. 164. Fortunately,
Dinadan
is
a
very
suppor)ve
husband.

  165. 165. Parsifal
is
quite
serious
about
feats
of
arms
these
days.

  166. 166. ‐‐and
the
coopera)ve
rivalry
between
these
two
has
not
worn
off.
 Parsifal:

Why
do
you
ask
if
I
cheat,
brother?

You
know
my
purity
of
heart
 does
not
allow
it.

In
fact—
 Gawaine:

‐‐you
were
going
to
say
that
I’m
the
one
who
cheats,
only
such
is
 your
virtue
that
you
would
never
dream
of
saying
such
a
thing,
yeah.

  167. 167. Gawaine:

You
know
our
goal
is
to
protect
the
family,
especially
our
sister,
 only
so
far
there’s
nothing
to
do.

So
in
the
mean)me,
there
is
one
quest
 I
think
we
ought
to
complete.


 Parsifal:

Should
we
ask
Dad
for
Permission
To
Go
Out?
 Gawaine:

You
think
real
knights
ask
their
fathers
for
Permission
to
go
on
 quests?

Percy,
seriously.
 .
.
.
probably
we
should.

  168. 168. Cashier
you
may
recognize:

Are
you
chafng
me
up?

Were
you
thinking
of
 asking
me
on
a
date?
 Parsifal:

Um.
.
.
I
think
I’m
sworn
to
chas)ty,
yes,
that
would
be
it.
 ‐‐Oh,
Parsifal,
you
fibber.

Both
he
and
Gawaine
checked
her
out
and
didn’t
 like
her
much,
because
they
have
ridiculous
turn
ons
like
custom
hair
and
 hats
and
full
face
makeup,
which
are
going
to
get
changed.

They
merely
 went
downtown
quietly
to
set
their
gender
preferences‐‐

  169. 169. And
to
buy
cellphones,
which
is
probably
more
interes)ng
to
Pop
Sims
 anyway.

  170. 170. Dinadan
also
brought
Gawaine
and
Parsifal
to
work
at
the
family
toy
store.

 Dinadan
bought
Tyke’s
Tower
Toys
some
)me
ago,
mostly
because
I
was
 )red
of
running
Inner
Child
Toys
and
Gi,s.

  171. 171. Poor
Mor)mer.

All
he
ever
did
was
found
the
science
nerd
branch
of
the
 family
and
set
up
the
local
robo)cs
store.

He’s
lived
a
quiet
life
here
in
 Weivtnasaelp,
and
he
can’t
leave
the
house
without
having
Dinadan
 Hard
Sell
him
something
he
definitely
doesn’t
want.

  172. 172. Even
far
more
ruthless
Sims
than
Mor)mer
can’t
resist
Dinadan
now.

  173. 173. But
the
star
salesman
is
Killick.
 WriterTina:

I
do
not
in
any
way
wish
to
purchase
a
bear.

Not
a
small
bear,
 nor
a
large
bear,
nor
a
stupid
expensive
Giant
Bear.

No
bears
at
all.

  174. 174. Killick:

Which
you
will
be
buyin’
a
(&(^&*^&in’
bear.
 WriterTina:

Oooo.

  175. 175. Killick:

Buy
a
)(&(^&*^&in’
bear.
 Purple
Bunny:

Yes!

  176. 176. Achilles:

Where
are
the
bears?

  177. 177. I
suspect
that
Achilles
really
followed
this
fascina)ng
specimen
of
 womanhood
into
the
shop.

  178. 178. Killick:

Which
I
is
only
callin’
it
a
nutcracker
acos
it
cracks
nuts
an’
nothing
 funny
about
it.
 Flavius:

Fascina)ng!

  179. 179. You
didn’t
understand
that
at
all,
did
you?
 Flavius:

Face
)me!

  180. 180. Parsifal:

Congratula)ons
on
gefng
all
the
Connec)ons
perks!
 That’s
the
real
reason
Dinadan
invited
them
down
to
the
business.

Pop
Sims
 especially
love
having
the
Head
For
Numbers
perk.
 They
didn’t
go
down
to
the
ice
cream
shop,
but
Penelope
made
one
last
run
 before
the
baby
came.

  181. 181. Penelope
has
maintained
the
tradi)on
of
selling
Very
Expensive
Stupid
Pink
 Bears,
mostly
to
simselves
like
Candi
(Chili Catastrophe.)

  182. 182. Penelope:

Ice
cream,
Purple
Bunny!
 Purple
Bunny:

Oooo!
 She’s
really
becoming
one
of
our
best
customers.

  183. 183. Rhys:
This
is
a
new
neighborhood
and
I
am
NOT
going
to
buy
ice
cream
and
 Big
Expensive
Stupid
Pink
Bears.

I
refuse
to—
 Penelope:

Big
Expensive
Stupid
Pink
Bear!
 Rhys:

YESS!

‐‐dang.

  184. 184. There’s
that
mysterious
blond
townie
again.

She
seems
to
like
the
ice
cream
 store,
and
she
looks
very
familiar.

  185. 185. Zeeshan
may
be
Doc
Nerd’s
Jerky
Jake,
but
here
he’s
a
really
good
employee.

 He
loves
selling
people
stuff
they
don’t
need.

  186. 186. Zeeshan:

Cha‐CHING!

  187. 187. The
reporter
came
back
and
wrote
a
posi)ve
review
and
gave
us
a
second
 Best
of
the
Best
Award.

Maybe
she
had
her
memory
modified.

We
put
 both
of
them
on
the
wall
and
customers
and
employees
alike
walk
by
 them
and
approve.
 However,
what
we
really
want
is
to
get
the
business
to
Level
Ten.

Once
 you’ve
done
Five
Top
Businesses,
one
of
two
things
happens—you
hate
 the
sight
of
a
business,
or
it’s
become
an
addic)on
and
you
can’t
stop.

  188. 188. We
may
be
able
to
wrap
this
up.
 Penelope:

Soooo,
DocNerd.

I
understand
you’re
in
love
with
my
brother.
 DocNerd:

Yeah.

What’s
the
problem?
 Penelope:

Oh,
no
problem.

It’s
just
that
Ulysses
is
a
liAle.
.
.slow?

  189. 189. Penelope:

And
I
need
ONE
MORE
GOLD
STAR
and
we’ll
be
at
Level
Ten
and
I
 swear
to
you
that
if
you
give
me
one
and
I
can
go
home
and
put
my
 swollen
ankles
up
I
will
call
Ulysses
and
tell
him
to
speed
up
his
game.

  190. 190. Penelope:

I
knew
we’d
understand
each
other.

  191. 191. So
Doc
Nerd
was
thrilled
to
buy
some
ice
cream
or
something
and
gave
 Penelope
the
last
gold
star
to
put
the
business
at
Level
Ten,
and
here
is
 the
picture
to
prove
it.

  192. 192. Penelope:

So,
Zeeshan,
I’m
going
home
now
and
I’d
like
you
to
be
manager
 so
I
don’t
ever
have
to
come
back.

I’ll
be
calling
in
once
in
a
while
to
 collect
some
money,
but
otherwise
I’m
leaving
you
here
to
work
a
long
 week
with
long
hours
at
pathe)c
pay.

Interested?
 Zeeshan
was
thrilled.

  193. 193. Zeeshan:

Cha‐ching!

  194. 194. Penelope
got
the
business
to
Level
Ten
just
in
)me.

Pregnant
Sims
don’t
like
 running
businesses
much,
since
they
have
to
throw
up
and
pee
a
lot,
but
 if
they’re
permaplat
and
have
a
Servo
like
Killick
to
help,
it’s
not
too
bad.

 S)ll,
Penelope
really
was
happy
to
quit.

Once
she
earned
her
Gold
Sales
 Badge,
she
lost
all
interest
in
the
business.

  195. 195. The
twins’
rivalry
con)nues.
 Parsifal:

I
topped
my
teen
career!
 Gawaine:

Big
deal,
I
did
mine
days
ago.

  196. 196. Apologies
for
the
cutaway
shot.

Penelope
appears
to
be
gefng
5,000
 Aspira)on
points
for
Emptying
a
poAy.

Actually,
it’s
Parsifal
off
gefng
a
 scholarship.

  197. 197. Finally,
the
event
I
have
been
wai)ng
for
so
long—the
birthday
of
the
first
 Genera)on
Nine
girl.

With
the
run
of
boys
we’ve
had,
Elaine
will
almost
 certainly
be
the
heiress,
so
what
will
she
be
like?

  198. 198. Penelope:

She’s
beau)ful!

But
I’m
sure
we
can
dress
her
up
a
bit
beAer.

Oh,
 goodie—I
finally
can
use
all
those
preAy
liAle
girl
clothes.

  199. 199. Elaine
looks
a
lot
like
Penelope,
as
you’ll
see.
She’s
also
Shy,
like
her
mother
 and
Ulysses,
and
like
her
father:

a
Sag,
6/3/9/8/5.



  200. 200. Obviously
Penelope
found
some
of
those
cute
liAle
girl
clothes
she’d
been
 saving
up.

  201. 201. Dinadan
loses
no
)me
in
teaching
her
how
to
walk.

  202. 202. ‐‐which
gives
them
both
a
lot
of
aspira)on
points.

This
is
helpful,
as
Dinadan
 won’t
be
permaplat
for
a
long
)me
and
he
needs
whatever
boosts
he
 can
get.

  203. 203. Elaine:

Sigh.

I’m
so
bored.

  204. 204. I
don’t
know
what
she
has
to
complain
about.

Everyone
was
thrilled
when
 she
was
born.

The
family
went
nuts
buying
her
preAy
clothes
and
 redecora)ng
her
nursery.

  205. 205. Elaine:

SIGH.

I’m
languishing
here
in
my
tower.

No
one
EVER
pays
any
 aAen)on
to
me
and
I’m
le,
all
ALONE.



  206. 206. Never
happens.

Everyone
is
falling
all
over
themselves
to
give
Elaine
exactly
 what
she
wants.

Daddy
is
constantly
coming
in
to
teach
her
how
to
talk
 or
read
to
her.

  207. 207. Elaine:

Sigh.

Languishing.
 Gawaine:

So,
Princess,
I’m
the
oldest.
.
.
 Elaine:

Bored.


  208. 208. Gawaine:

No,
no,
Princess,
you
don’t
get
it!
Percy
and
Palomides
and
I—and
 Dad
and
Mom—we’ve
waited
forever
for
you.

Percy
and
I
are
sworn
to
 protect
you.

We’ll
do
anything
for
you.

We’re
your
vassals.

Say
“vassal.”
 Elaine:

Vassal.
 Gawaine:

Very
good!

  209. 209. Parsifal:

I
hope
whatever
Gawaine
said
wasn’t
too
shocking
for
your
pure
 liAle
ears,
cherub.

But
you’re
everything
to
us.

I’ve
put
everything
aside
 to
protect
you
and
make
you
happy.

We’re
nothing
without
you.


 Elaine:

Bored.

Lonely.

Languishing.

Entertain
me?
 Parsifal:

I’m.
.
.
not
so
good
at
the
entertainment
bit.

I’m
more
the
“sworn
to
 defend
you
to
the
death”
type.

I’ll
get
Palomides.

  210. 210. Palomides
was
happy
to
come
in
as
Elaine’s
jester
or
minstrel.

  211. 211. Though
I’m
not
sure
if
that
was
a
shriek
of
delight
or
a
shriek
of
terror.

  212. 212. Elaine:

Love.

Want
love,
Mr.
KiAycat.
 Smores:

Prowr.

  213. 213. Elaine:

Want
to
be
loved.
.
.


  214. 214. Thank
you
to
so
many
people,
especially
everyone
who’s
waited
so
pa)ently
for
an
update.
