Squeaky Clean Legacy 17.5A: What Comes Out Of The Fire--Part One
The Squeaky Clean Legacy: Chapter 17.5
What Comes Out of the Fire: Part One
When we last le+ the Squeaky Clean Legacy, our Ninth
Genera;on heiress Elaine had put her bad rela;onship with
Angus Pleasant behind her, and she and Ian Legacina had
admiDed that their feelings for each other went beyond
Also a good deal of this, because while Elaine’s ﬁrst cousin
Nausicaa is a Pleasure Sim, she very much disapproves of PDA.
But no maDer how much aﬀec;on she feels for Ian, Elaine persists in
being afraid of geNng engaged. It’s a classic Romance Fear, but it’s
understandable considering what happened the last ;me.
Most of the other couples in the house have glitch‐free rela;onships.
Well, almost glitch‐free.
Zane Marius‐Jacquet: Hey! That ball hurt! I thought you weren’t mad at
Lenore: Heh‐heh, sorry, Zane. One nice point. Nothing personal.
You do almost understand Nausicaa’s point of view. There really is quite
a lot of this.
Dusty Broke: You’re not going to give me a hard ;me about Angus, are you?
Because I swear I didn’t know he was engaged.
Bunthorne: No. Elaine doesn’t have a problem with it. Why should I? No, I
just wanted to tell you that I think you can do a lot beDer than that.
Bunthorne: Yes. With me.
Doc: Scholarships ahoy!
No;ce the eggplant juice on the counter? That’s how Ulysses maxed his
skills before he was a teenager, and if it’s good enough for her daddy, it’s
good enough for her.
The one down side about being a vampire’s daughter is that he isn’t
available to help you with homework when you come home from school,
so Molly racks out on the sofa instead.
I suppose it would have been possible to have Doc or Achilles do it.
But Ulysses really wanted to. He always rolls Skill Wants for his daughter,
unless he’s rolling the want to Encourage her to Be Grouchy, encouragement
that she does not need.
Also, this makes them Best Friends, so it’s worth it.
Molly: And I wanted to ask for homework help, so it all works out.
This is why I say Molly is a baby Knowledge Sim. She keeps doing this
Daddy’s a vampire, Uncle Achilles is a Rock God, and Mommy’s in the Criminal
track, so they’re all night people.
Doc: Shoo ﬂee? I s;nk?
Molly: You want to buy lemonade, Uncle Achilles.
Achilles: I do? Enough to get out of the hot tub where I was with one of
Yeah, I’m sorry to say that Molly gets preDy much whatever she wants.
Doc and Ulysses are an extremely stalky couple when he’s up and around.
Dates do have to come to an end at some point, though.
I think you should kiss your husband goodbye before he burns up. Not
with passion. Literally.
Molly also got a bird. Call him Psmith. The “p” is silent, as in “psiDacosis.”
Shamelessly ripped oﬀ from PG Wodehouse.
Children can’t teach birds to talk, so Doc had to.
Doc: Global warming.
Psmith: Gluggly walnuts.
Molly: And while you swoop down and aim for his eyes, I’ll li+ his wallet,
Molly: Are you guys too busy for a Talk Through Bear or what?
Garden Club Guy: Thanks for invi;ng us for an inspec;on, Mr.
Goodytwoshoes. I didn’t know you were interested in gardening.
Achilles: I’m not, really. My brother’s the gardener, but he’s asleep in his
coﬃn right now, and I could use a Wishing Well.
“Excuse me, you appear to be having an emergency on your lot. Maybe right
now isn’t the best ;me for an inspec;on.”
The Garden Club. Always helpful.
Doc just went permaplat. She’s a Criminal Mastermind now.
And Molly topped her Teen Career, so she’ll be ready to go to college
when Kai is ready to go.
Kai: Hey, did you know that phone call just made us Best Friends? So you
don’t want to kill me a+er all?
At the Squeaky Clean Legacy house, it’s business as usual. Penelope and
Dinadan con;nue their three bolt stalkiness. They’re the ones who got
themselves together in the ﬁrst place, and I’ve never regreDed it.
Penelope: Look! I have a kiDen!
Dinadan: I’ve got one too.
There are ﬁnger‐gunning Servos:
Killick: Which it Is a ^&(^%^Tin’ honor to be pumpin’ the bilges out
around here, swelp me.
And there are ghosts who can’t ﬁgure out how to get through a wall.
They do this all night long. I think they’re trying to get to their bed in the
basement, only they can’t reach it. No bed, no cheer, no scaring anyone.
The ﬁ+h genera;on heiress Ruby is too bright to get stuck and manages
to get in a good Haunt or two. No doubt this is why Killick misses her and
keeps rolling the want to see her ghost.
LyDon seems to have decided to drop by the Legacy House to check up on
LyDon: I am the family historian, a+er all.
And De/Fireﬂower dropped in—because she’s a simself and they do that
kind of thing?
Since Kai and Molly are Best Friends, why not let them Sneak Out, right?
It was a Snow Day anyway, and they didn’t get caught.
It occurs to me that there have been far too few kiDen pictures lately. I will try
to make up for this.
Don’t ask which ones are which. I can’t really tell them apart at this stage.
The next several cap;ons are some version of “D’aw.”
Kai: KiDens are what we do.
Since Kai’s Popularity, and obviously we have some ;me to kill before the
kiDens grow up, why not have a party?
Kai: Party! Yessss!
Molly: Of course I was invited.
Gawaine: Of course I was invited. I throw most of the par;es at school.
It’s true, Molly, you want to be nice to him.
Molly: Did you know your legs are glitching through the end of the table?
Let’s make it a New Year’s Bash! We’ve never had one of those before!
Max: Mama, what are you doing? Are you quite certain you feel well?
Cecilia: I thought—I thought since you have your garden, that maybe I could
add a liDle brightness, a liDle color. . .
They’re not important; they’re just ﬂowers. But I do like them, Max.
Max: Since you are fond of them. . .
