Squeaky Clean Legacy 17.5A: What Comes Out Of The Fire--Part One

  1. 1. The Squeaky Clean Legacy: Chapter 17.5 What Comes Out of the Fire: Part One
  2. 2. 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
 ordinary
friendship.


  3. 3. There
is
a
good
deal
of
this
going
on.

  4. 4. Also
a
good
deal
of
this,
because
while
Elaine’s
first
cousin
 Nausicaa
is
a
Pleasure
Sim,
she
very
much
disapproves
of
PDA.

  5. 5. 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.

  6. 6. Zane
Marius‐Jacquet:

Hey!

That
ball
hurt!

I
thought
you
weren’t
mad
at
 me
anymore!

  7. 7. Lenore:

Heh‐heh,
sorry,
Zane.

One
nice
point.

Nothing
personal.

  8. 8. You
do
almost
understand
Nausicaa’s
point
of
view.

There
really
is
quite
 a
lot
of
this.

  9. 9. At
almost
any
;me
of
day.

  10. 10. At
least
Nausicaa’s
boyfriend
Nino
Caliente
makes
himself
useful
around
 the
house.

  11. 11. On
the
other
hand,
Ian
makes
himself
useful
around
the
house,
too.

  12. 12. And
then
there
are
par;es,
in
this
case,
a
gradua;on
party
for
 LyDon’s
younger
daughter
Regina.
 Gawaine:

Hey
hey,
Bunthorne,
you
should
go
for
it.



  13. 13. Bunthorne:

Um,
ahem,
hi,
Dusty.

  14. 14. 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.
 Dusty:

Really?
 Bunthorne:

Yes.
With
me.

  15. 15. Dusty:

Oh,
you’re
pulling
my
leg.

  16. 16. Bunthorne:

Have
I
men;oned
that
I’m
a
Fortune
Sim
and
that
my
family
 owns
a
business
at
which
we
sell
artwork
of
dubious
origin?
 Dusty:

No,
but
I
want
to
hear
all
about
this.

  17. 17. Elaine:

Congratula;ons
on
gradua;ng
Summa
Cum
Laude,
Regina!

  18. 18. Regina:

Don’t
say
anything.

Just
don’t.

  19. 19. I’m
sure
LyDon
will
be
happy
to
have
his
daughter
home,
though
not
as
 happy
as
he
is
to
play
with
his
and
RubyBlue’s
pet
dog,
um,
lamb,
Baa‐ Baa.

  20. 20. At
the
boys’
house,
romance
also
proceeds
apace.

There
are
plenty
of
 toga
par;es
to
which
Palomides’
fiance,
Stacey
the
Grocery
Girl,
is
usually
 invited.

  21. 21. Gawaine:

See,
I
knew
this
would
work
out.
 Why
don’t
you
find
your
own
girlfriend?
 Gawaine:

Because
it’s
much
more
fun
fixing
up
other
people.

  22. 22. Dusty
admires
Bunthorne
because
he’s
a
good
cook.

OK,
I’ve
seen
him
 make
creampuffs,
and
he’s
a
bit
creampuffy
himself
when
he’s
not
being
 a
pill,
so
that’s
fair
enough.

  23. 23. Even
people
who
don’t
live
here
find
romance.

Linus
Burb
spent
quite
of
 lot
of
his
;me
with
his
boyfriend
Ethan.

  24. 24. Telemachus:

*whine*


 Oh,
geez,
you’d
think
I’d
asked
him
to
do
something
hideous.

  25. 25. It
really
does
make
him
happy
to
propose
to
Asia.

He’s
just
painfully
shy.

  26. 26. I
do
try
not
to
insert
the
standard
line
about
“oo,
sparkly,”
here,
but
that’s
 how
Asia
is.

She’s
a
Family
Sim
and
she’s
got
three
bolts
with
 Telemachus,
and
‐‐
 Asia:

Ooo!

Sparkly!
 Thank

you.

  27. 27. Asia:

Thank
you,
swee;e.

  28. 28. I
really
do
not
like
geNng
pop
up
messages
about
how
Saxe‐Coburg‐ Gotha’s
food
dish
is
almost
empty
and
we
need
to
fill
it
right
away.

I
 always
panic.

Your
dish
is
full,
ok?

  29. 29. Ian:

Was
there
something
you
wanted?
 Parsifal:

Yes.

I
have
a
Want
to
Be
Your
Friend.


 Ian:

OK.

Make
it
speedy.
 It
would
be
much
speedier
if
Ian
wasn’t
so
thorny
some;mes.

  30. 30. And
if
he
didn’t
keep
geNng
distracted.
 Palomides:

Remind
me
why
we
worked
so
hard
to
get
them
together
 again?

  31. 31. Doc:

Do
you
ever
miss
the
paDer
of
liDle
feet
around
the
house?
 Ulysses:

Um,
no.
 Doc:

Good
.
Neither
do
I.

  32. 32. Their
daughter
Molly
is
quite
enough
for
anyone.

For
one
thing,
she’s
got
 a
wicked
aim
with
a
dart.

  33. 33. She’s
also
very
obviously
a
baby
Knowledge
Sim.

She
rolls
Skill
Wants
 again.
.
.

  34. 34. And
again.
.
.


  35. 35. And
again.
 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.

  36. 36. 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.

  37. 37. I
suppose
it
would
have
been
possible
to
have
Doc
or
Achilles
do
it.

  38. 38. 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.

  39. 39. Molly:

And
I
wanted
to
ask
for
homework
help,
so
it
all
works
out.

  40. 40. This
is
why
I
say
Molly
is
a
baby
Knowledge
Sim.

She
keeps
doing
this
 autonomously.

  41. 41. 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?

  42. 42. 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
 my
girlfriends?
 Molly:

Yup.

  43. 43. Yeah,
I’m
sorry
to
say
that
Molly
gets
preDy
much
whatever
she
wants.

  44. 44. Doc
and
Ulysses
are
an
extremely
stalky
couple
when
he’s
up
and
around.

  45. 45. Dates
do
have
to
come
to
an
end
at
some
point,
though.

  46. 46. I
think
you
should
kiss
your
husband
goodbye
before
he
burns
up.

Not
 with
passion.

Literally.

  47. 47. Molly
also
got
a
bird.

Call
him
Psmith.

The
“p”
is
silent,
as
in
“psiDacosis.”
 __
 Shamelessly
ripped
off
from
PG
Wodehouse.

  48. 48. Children
can’t
teach
birds
to
talk,
so
Doc
had
to.
 Doc:

Global
warming.
 Psmith:

Gluggly
walnuts.

  49. 49. Molly:

And
while
you
swoop
down
and
aim
for
his
eyes,
I’ll
li+
his
wallet,
 ok?

  50. 50. Molly:

You
may
fire
when
ready,
Gridley.

  51. 51. Cue
up
the
seventeenth
;me
this
has
happened
today—
 Doc:

Congratula;ons,
Ulysses,
you’re
hot.

  52. 52. Nausicaa:

Agh,
do
they
have
to
do
that?
 Well,
you
know
they’re
going
to
do
it
anyway.

  53. 53. Everybody
in
the
family
has
to
be
there,
of
course,
including
Molly’s
older
 brother
and
sister,
and
they
ought
to
be
used
to
all
the
stalking
by
now.

  54. 54. She
is
much
too
smart
to
say
anything
about
her
wishes,
but
I
will
bet
it
is
 something
scary.

  55. 55. And
the
first
set
of
booster
rockets
go
off!

  56. 56. Sophia:

Go
girl!
 Doc:

Not
terrible
clothing!
 Molly
grew
up
Well.

And
lucky.

Her
oufit
suits
her.

She
just
had
to
be
 Knowledge.

I
didn’t
even
roll.

  57. 57. Doc:

Congratula;ons
on
a
fabulous
wedding
party,
Ulysses!

  58. 58. Ulysses:

Thanks!

Hey,
did
Molly
just
earn
a
scholarship?

  59. 59. Doc:

Also,
you
are
hot.

  60. 60. Psmith:

Let’s
talk
financial
reform.
 Telemachus:

Do
we
have
to?

  61. 61. Kai
is
the
youngest
of
the
Goodytwoshoes
knights,
and
he’s
Pop,
so
he
 had
to
have
a
cell
phone.

He
happened
to
meet
Molly
while
he
was
out
 buying
one.

  62. 62. Making
friends
went
well
in
some
ways‐‐

  63. 63. Not
so
well
in
other
ways.

  64. 64. Molly:

You
are
dead,
do
you
hear
me?

DEAD.

  65. 65. Molly:

Are
you
guys
too
busy
for
a
Talk
Through
Bear
or
what?

  66. 66. 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.

  67. 67. “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.

  68. 68. Doc
just
went
permaplat.

She’s
a
Criminal
Mastermind
now.


  69. 69. And
Molly
topped
her
Teen
Career,
so
she’ll
be
ready
to
go
to
college
 when
Kai
is
ready
to
go.

  70. 70. Kai:

Hey,
did
you
know
that
phone
call
just
made
us
Best
Friends?

So
you
 don’t
want
to
kill
me
a+er
all?



  71. 71. 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.

  72. 72. Penelope:

Look!

I
have
a
kiDen!
 Dinadan:

I’ve
got
one
too.

  73. 73. There
are
finger‐gunning
Servos:
 Killick:

Which
it
Is
a
^&(^%^Tin’
honor
to
be
pumpin’
the
bilges
out
 around
here,
swelp
me.

  74. 74. 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.

  75. 75. 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.

  76. 76. LyDon
seems
to
have
decided
to
drop
by
the
Legacy
House
to
check
up
on
 things.
 LyDon:

I
am
the
family
historian,
a+er
all.

  77. 77. And
De/Fireflower
dropped
in—because
she’s
a
simself
and
they
do
that
 kind
of
thing?

  78. 78. 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.

  79. 79. 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.

  80. 80. The
next
several
cap;ons
are
some
version
of
“D’aw.”

  81. 81. 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?

  82. 82. Kai:

Party!

Yessss!
 Molly:

Of
course
I
was
invited.

  83. 83. 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?

  84. 84. Let’s
make
it
a
New
Year’s
Bash!

We’ve
never
had
one
of
those
before!


  85. 85. Yayyy
Happy
New
Year
yaaay!

  86. 86. Molly:

Yayyy
Happy
New
Year
yaaay!
 Penelope:

This
is
a
bit
disappoin;ng.
 Kind
of
like
the
real
thing.

  87. 87. Palomides:

And
THAT
is
creepy.

  88. 88. Toddler
New
Year
really
is
creepy.

  89. 89. Babies
are
not
supposed
to
smustle.

  90. 90. But
Kai
gets
his
first
Roof
Raiser
party
out
of
it,
so
it
was
worth
it.

  91. 91. Ooo!

Time
for
kiDens
growing
up!

This
is
what
we
were
wai;ng
for!

  92. 92. Caramel‐‐

  93. 93. Cappucino‐‐

  94. 94. ‐‐who
grows
up
half
in
and
half
out
of
the
liDer
box.

  95. 95. They
look
iden;cal.
And
striking.

  96. 96. And
Chocolate.

  97. 97. They’re
just
as
nice
when
they’re
cats,
people.

  98. 98. We
haven’t
had
enough
cat
pictures,
either.

More
Chocolate.

  99. 99. There
are
four
other
beds.

  100. 100. Eventually
she
found
one.

  101. 101. Cecil:

My
clock
appears
to
have
weathered
my
absence.


 Clearly
he
missed
it.

  102. 102. I
think
Cecil
worried
about
the
fish,
too,
but
it’s
nice
to
see
Cecilia
 bonding
with
Max.

  103. 103. Sparkle
was
watching
them
the
en;re
;me.
 Fish:

Our
nerves
cannot
stand
much
more.

  104. 104. Cecilia
seems
to
have
accepted
the
reality
that
her
husband
is
gone,
and
 that
her
Papa
and
her
son
are
alive.

  105. 105. She
is
much
sadder,
but
she
seems
much
more
mature.

  106. 106. Also,
like
everyone
else
in
the
house,
she
cheats
at
chess.
And
her
family
 has
not
stopped
worrying
about
her.

  107. 107. Max:

Mama?

  108. 108. Max:

Mama,
what
are
you
doing?
Are
you
quite
certain
you
feel
well?

  109. 109. 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.
.
.

  110. 110. Max:

‐‐I
do
not
see
what
harm
it
could
do.

  111. 111. And
yet,
Max
s;ll
tends
his
garden
at
midnight.

  112. 112. Max:

If
Mama
no
longer
requires
my
assistance—I
wish
someone
would
let
me
 know.
 You
s;ll
worry
about
her.
 Max:

Yes.

  113. 113. To be continued. . .
