Peregrine 1.5: Birdhouse in Your Soul  
Peregrine Legacy
So this is it! The very last generation one update. It took FOREVER as I was playing like forty minutes at a time once a week for a spell. But in the end I whittled 550ish screens to 102 (not too hard, a lot were me taking pictures of Sims in the wrong bed and badly angled convos) to span the last chunk until adulthood for the triplets.

Peregrine Legacy
You know, I thought what Tibs was doing with her hand was funny here but now I am distracted by that baseboard. Mm, quality captions, ahoy!
Peregrine Legacy
Data: What is the significance of the cake and candles? As a fleshy human, I should understand this, yes?
Janeway makes a mental list of things more interesting than listening to Data talk.
Peregrine Legacy
Which apparently includes doing laundry.
Peregrine Legacy
This is what the Not Pinks are doing: assessing Jean-Luc's manliness.
Peregrine Legacy
More guitar playing as I just love her face.
Peregrine Legacy
I don't know what looks nastier: the 'food' she made, or the stove she used to make it.
Peregrine Legacy
The detail is a little lost, but Janeway and Data are both REALLY offended by the stove.
Peregrine Legacy
Okay, so as a Star Wars nerd 'Spice Runner' means I suddenly find Lenny much cooler.
Peregrine Legacy
Uh, if you squint really hard you can see Demo failing at life here.
Peregrine Legacy
So she detonates some shit to feel better. See, football? Those piles of garbage could be YOU!
Peregrine Legacy
Although he is a Pink, Data gets to be the Cheekbone club; however you slice it, it's 3 vs. 3 in this family. And every single conversation is about favorite colors. Uh.
Peregrine Legacy
Suddenly Demo just looks tired. You know, maybe if she stopped walking around in hot pants with her boobs out, there wouldn't be so many kids in this family. But I can't be bothered to change her PJs, so oh well.
Peregrine Legacy
What, Janeway's strange school friend (and possible niece*)? What is causing the crazy eyes? Is it the eye boggling wallpaper?
Peregrine Legacy
Oh. Oh I see. It was an unmade bed. That you literally jogged across the house to fix. That is normal guest behavior.
Peregrine Legacy
Meanwhile, Demo is still trying to convince people that technology is cool; she is worried that Consignment Shop Guy is too monotone to understand, however.
Peregrine Legacy
Seriously, his everything is the same color. Demo can't decide where his face is and decided to cross her eyes in case he is one of those MagicEyes things.
Peregrine Legacy
Oh, and Jean-Luc is making mac and cheese for the baby hater.
Peregrine Legacy
He also hates crepes.
Peregrine Legacy
Here, possible Niece* makes a grave mistake. You do NOT insult the wallpaper.
Peregrine Legacy
Janeway: Yeah, yeah, see how you like TIBERIUS, bitch.
Well, she does look more likely to punch someone out.
Peregrine Legacy
Demo comes to join the fun. The women of the household (again 3 v. 3!) seriously lined up to sass her one at a time.
Peregrine Legacy
Also, I got a little pop-up that Jean-Luc was being Inappropriate and had to go home. Then he had this conversation. What seedy business is my darling little Klepto getting in to?
Peregrine Legacy
Demo: How curious! A metal-colored lump of playdoh. I must shape it!
Peregrine Legacy
Data: So I have learned that red is the color of passion for fleshy human creatures. Is this true? Would mentioning or wearing the color red entice you to love me?
Peregrine Legacy

Peregrine Legacy
This is a different day. He just keeps going over there. I have not decided which one of them he is in to.
Peregrine Legacy
I just love the wee versions of the large inventions. Frankly, if she's mastered the art of changing an objects' size at will, this household should be loaded. Alas.

Peregrine Legacy
Then perhaps they could hire a maid. Tiberius may have sat as far away from the toxic mold as possible, but the serving dish is still right on top of it.
Peregrine Legacy
And there's something sentient in the toilet. Just flush it, Data!! Do not get attached!
Peregrine Legacy
Oh hey right cool.
Peregrine Legacy
!!!!
Peregrine Legacy
!!!
Peregrine Legacy
!!!
Peregrine Legacy
... It's... it's just like the catacombs? WHUT, NO! I am so let down.
Peregrine Legacy
After that harrowing experience, all she wants is her BF. (no that is right I never married them)
Peregrine Legacy
Well, at least the stove has been cleaned.

(Is Jean-Luc trying to hide his Boiled White Mush? It's a surprise, don't look! It's mac and cheese again, J-L).
Peregrine Legacy
What. What are you doing!
Peregrine Legacy
NO DON'T DO THAT WHY!

Curse my love of autonomy mods.

Yes there were chimes. :[ :[ :[
Peregrine Legacy
Tiberius: Mom and Dad! Stop making more of us and FEED THE ONES YOU HAVE!
Peregrine Legacy
This was her punishment.
Peregrine Legacy
 Way to show concern for your like 48 year old mother vomiting urgently, J-L.
Peregrine Legacy
Hint: the blank stare means she does not care.
Peregrine Legacy
Tiberius: Is he following me? I just want t do the laundry.
Peregrine Legacy
Oh don't worry, sweetheart. He'll wait.
Peregrine Legacy
Demo: Dude! Who knew that welding is hot and dangerous!
Peregrine Legacy
I think it was near this point in playing that I knew Tiberius would be heir... and so did they. *shudder*
Peregrine Legacy
!! ! ! ! Master Invention hells yeah!
Peregrine Legacy
I concur.
Peregrine Legacy
This is more of her punishment: Supreme Commander'd collecting time.
Peregrine Legacy
Oh boy!
Peregrine Legacy
Wasting no time!
Peregrine Legacy
Peregrine Legacy
Peregrine Legacy
Peregrine Legacy
And then Lenny died.
Peregrine Legacy
Just kidding. Data turned in to this.
Peregrine Legacy
And then I made him over and forgot his glasses. Trait list: Easily Impressed, Light Sleeper, Vegetarian, and Childish (new).
Peregrine Legacy
And this happened immediately.
Peregrine Legacy
I did send Demo to the hospital, but I clearly couldn't be bothered to wait there. She got: Hates the Outdoors, and Good.

Also Major Kira is adorable forever.
Peregrine Legacy
Like I posted: I decided to redo the house. Actually I also moved them in to town and then spent DAYS on this house. This is the only picture I took of it.
Peregrine Legacy
Data: Good idea. With the music box playing, there will be no way for them to hear our plot against the Heir.
Peregrine Legacy
No gingham in this house. Sorrow. Incidentally she actually looks better without a lot of makeup on.

What? Oh, right. Plotting!
Peregrine Legacy
... it was I guess a plot to pray to the music box god for reconsideration.

Sorry guys. You have the combined personality of a bit of twig.
Peregrine Legacy
Continuing in the tradition of not making eye contact with infants.
Peregrine Legacy
This is during school hours. I guess they got an all-day recess.
Peregrine Legacy
Poor thing didn't make it to the bus. Perhaps if you used the LOVELY BED I set up for you instead of continued to play chess?
Peregrine Legacy
Data: I'll demonstrate to you who has one-half the personality of a bit of twig.
Peregrine Legacy
Data: Oh, look, a baby.
Peregrine Legacy
Peregrine Legacy

Peregrine Legacy
And then I invited Corrine over to marvel at her ears in the EXCESSIVE BLOOM what. Actually just to rebuild their friendship so I wouldn't miss if she and Matt Smith had an adorable no-eyebrowed Dumbo eared baby.
Peregrine Legacy
I took away their Gnubb set so this is what they do instead.
Peregrine Legacy
Hooray, more promotions?
Peregrine Legacy
Corrine is so so not in to Data's awesome sideburns.
Peregrine Legacy
Doing. It. Wrong.
Peregrine Legacy
Again, this is just a shot of Janeway being pretty.
Peregrine Legacy
So while perusing the reward list I realized I don't have to make a Simbot. And why would I!
Peregrine Legacy
So this is (apparently) Starla. I was going to change her name and make her humanoid, but then she's a lot less freaky than a Servo and kind of cool.
Peregrine Legacy
And, lo and behold, taking away the Gnubb set let Jean-Luc (artistic!) finally begin his masterpiece.
Peregrine Legacy
And time is ticking, so Demo better max her Logic soon.
Peregrine Legacy
Even the robot doesn't look at the baby.
Peregrine Legacy
I understand. It's hard deciding which pawn to move first.
Peregrine Legacy
Most angry LTW fulfillment face ever.
Peregrine Legacy
This is Demo tutoring Tiberius in handiness. Or, really, letting her know that she'll be responsible for the baby making around here.
Peregrine Legacy
Later, she realizes what she's done. If Tiberius is going to take the torch soon, she has so much left to do!
Peregrine Legacy
Noted.
Peregrine Legacy
And I realize that I won't be able to blow things up any more. So we do that.
Peregrine Legacy
Sparkle time OR The Loss of a Father's Love?
Peregrine Legacy
Oh. Sparkletime. And I will not lie. I cannot be bothered to make her over. So here is Nerys, upsetting the 3 v. 3 balance by being a girl, a Pink, and a Cheekbone. Way to go.
Peregrine Legacy
Just a shot of the whole family. Um. Except for Nerys and the Robot.
Peregrine Legacy
!!!!!!! !!!!!!  !!!!
Peregrine Legacy
Oh nevermind first lets look at Nerys not understanding color coordination but being the first toddler to pursue an activity more interesting than blocks.
Peregrine Legacy
I go into a small panic about the dwindling family finances thanks to the new house, and send Demo out to build another Time Machine for selling.
Peregrine Legacy
And in the midst  of a genuinely awful party, sparkle time. Way to wait for your mother. Or the cake!
Peregrine Legacy
So we get our second generation heir, all growed up. And I won't lie. I am actually used to her face.
Peregrine Legacy
Finishing touches!
Peregrine Legacy
Jean-Luc becomes this.
Peregrine Legacy
One last teen Janeway.
Peregrine Legacy
And this is the only shot I took of her as an adult before kicking those two out of the house. Um.
Anyway, full trait list:
Jean-Luc: Dramatic, Artistic, Genius, Kleptomaniac, Bookworm ; LTW: Posses 50k of stolen goods
Janeway: Schmoozer, Exciteable, Genius, Friendly, Perceptive ; LTW: To be Leader of the Free World

I did a picture for Tiberius, later.
Peregrine Legacy
The first thing un-selected Demo does. At this point I began to feel a little sad.
Peregrine Legacy
Then she played with Nerys, at which point I felt guilty. Did she secretly want to be a more hands-on mother? Ah well. Bye-bye, playable Demo  (...  I did not do that on purpose)
Peregrine Legacy
Here is the ultra-awesome picture I took of YA Tiberius. Her LTW is to be worth 100k.

And that's the end of generation one. Next time: Tiberius is good at money and bad at love.

*Possible Niece: I was reading a wiki and apparently Lenny has a pregnant daughter at the start of the game! Well, the family ties got borked or I would have figured it out eariler: I was able to locate the daughter and rebuild the tie to Lenny, but her mother and baby were gone. Based on maths, if the kid was born and didn't move out or die, then this Sim is one of the few at the right day-age in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, the family link doesn't exist under Jenni or Goodwin (the parents).

Brillant. Looking forward to Tiberius entries.
Kimnibfrabbit on August 20th, 2010 01:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks! They may be a bit of a wait as I'm working on a Top Secret Project* that will affect how I play. But hopefully that will make it even more interesting for you guys to read as well, so!

*An ISBI/challenge legacy hybrid.
Her Highness: Benedict || 8Dsimpairment on August 20th, 2010 02:24 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm glad Tiberius is heir. She's certainly the most interesting looking, but I also think she's fun to read about.

LOL I liked how nobody wants to look at the babies. How weird.
Kimnibfrabbit on August 20th, 2010 01:25 pm (UTC)
Urg tried to reply and my computer restarted itself. :[

Anyway, I basically said: Yes, I wasn't surprised to see her be the favorite and I think she'll be a good heir, etc, etc. And that also I thought I had been reading your Deens legacy but I guess not so I've been doing that for the last couple of days.
