Peregrine Legacy 2.2  
Peregrine Legacy 2.2

A smallish update, comprising 91 images. I had the comments almost finished and Firefox decided I wanted to leave the page. Grah.

When we left off, Tiberius and Teddy had just gotten engaged, and Demo wandered over to make conversation.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Demo: So, you know, if you just waited about a week, my younger daughter would have been available.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Demo: Unless you're really in to cheekbones THIS wide.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy: Oh, I completely am, and can't wait to get married. I was thinking, you know, maybe we could get some bells to ring just as we run down the church stairs, just like in a movie and--
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Across the room, Riker is fascinated with something. Perhaps a dust mote, or an invisible rabbit. The world may never know.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Later that night, Tiberius watches a meteor crash to earth. She tracks it down across town, sees that it is huge, and makes 20k off of the discovery.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Which is just over the amount she needs to become the owner of her diner. Generation challenge: I have defeated you.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: My fortune said I was getting married today, so please come down to the beach around 11.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
One last drink to the single life.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
The beach is decked out, and Teddy shows up like a sailor. Ah well.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
At least he's enthusiastic about the wedding. Way to go, other triplets.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy: Now don't lose this ring, we'd never see it again.

And we won't.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
The rest of the family is around here somewhere, it's just that without the arch, nobody comes to sit and really experience weddings. Way to go, EA.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy: Now that I'm married, I suddenly feel more responsible and like a full grown man!

That's right, he had a birthday and then ran off to work. During his wedding. Incidentally, his traits are: Ambitious, Brave, Clumsy, Handy, and Perceptive.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: So even though I chose Teddy, I hope that you understand and we can remain friends.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
And then he left.

Peregrine Legacy 2.2
And hey, what's a classy event like a wedding without mooching $5 off your sister?
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
They actually waited for the wedding night. Let's give them some privacy, shall we?
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Riker has been wandering around for days, thinking of the Laundry gnome. Clearly, he's terrified.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Here, he contemplates the birthplace of his newest nemesis.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Demo stayed at the beach to play for an audience of zero.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
All.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Night.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
And the wedding night was thusly had. I've turned chimes off, incidentally, so we'll have to wait and see for the results.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Apparently the WooHoo was really good, because this is what she painted right after.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Dude, you guys have a room!

Seriously they are always groping all over the house.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
As you can see, I got a little bored (and no baby was had), so off Tiberius went to do good.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Janeway strolled by with Sophia,  but didn't say hello.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Perhaps because at least three Sims peed their pants in front of the store.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius's "good deed" was to build a public restroom out back.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
And also clean up the mess. That's right, guy in a red sweater. Some poor woman in a bathing suit and high heels is mopping up your urine for you. Next time, just go home!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: So does no longer being the Doctor make you angry?
David Tennant: *tries not to cry*
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Here is Sophia, who apparently had a birthday that night.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
And Ismael, too. Jean-Luc's son, if you forgot. He apparently has Invisible Cow Toy.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
At home. Demo gets crazy excited about her food, still, even though I am pretty sure that is grilled cheese and not PB&J .
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Everyone is still obsessed with Rex. Despite my desires to keep as much autonomy as possible, I finally broke down and downloaded a "Don't look at bugs" mod. It was getting stupid.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: So, if you just impregnated me, I am going to kill you.
Teddy: *oblivious post-WooHoo stupor*
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: Hey, I can levitate this spoon.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Because Teddy is a firefighter*, I was curious about what he does at work since I can't control him. The answer is this.

I started to get "you missed a disaster" pop-ups. Fearful for the fate of my town, I cheated and made Teddy quit.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius goes to Jean-Luc's house and meets Pansy Peregrine, his wife #2. She's reasonably pretty?
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
But a real bitch. Halfway through their "conversation", Tiberius ran upstairs.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
I guess Teddy better watch out.
(sorry for the close-up. Her crazy eyes, I couldn't resist)
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
At least she brushes her teeth afterward.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Riker went to the house across the street after school, apparently just to experience the furniture.

... I hate his shoes, but then, he IS Insane.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
This poor little chubby kid still got WAY excited to have a guest.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Just after a really badly captured "bump", Tiberius breaks the news to Teddy.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy: Wow honey that is fantastic please do not murder me?
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
I also built a little playground, and Riker did this for about two hours.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
I gave Teddy a slightly less dopey makeover, bless him.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
And Riker did this for the rest of the day. Well, at least he got the hang of it eventually, eh?

Oh, wow, how long has it been since we saw Nerys? Not at all this update? Let's check in!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Oh. Well, okay then.

(I had maybe 25 different shots of her painting up to this point. I love her, but painting =/= exciting)
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
OH GOD, Demo, why did the camera zoom to you?!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
... what. Really? You're... just... okay. Well. Hm. I guess as long as you are not dead yet.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy may have used a skoche too much soap, here.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Nerys comes out of hiding and learns about Impending Gen 3 baby. She is really , really excited.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: Nerys, are you--
Nerys: Shh. I am putting this memory deep down inside of me so I can never forget it.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Seriously, it is not like she's never been an Aunt before. Then again, Janeway and Jean-Luc have NEVER visited and are never, ever in their houses. :[
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Careful! The social bunny can smell your fear, and even an image of a social bunny IS a social bunny.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Completely unprompted, Richie (Jenni's son) comes over. I guess I did invite him to the wedding, but I'm not sure they ever interacted.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
In fact, I'm sure they didn't, since Tiberius straight up dislikes her half-nephew.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Kind of a lot.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
 He also manages to not get along with Nerys, who is, you know, Good. He eventually leaves around 2AM.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy: Man, these pancakes really remind me of something.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
It was his wife's lips. These two!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Time to break the news to Demo, who would frankly need to be an idiot to be told at this point, considering she did this four times.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Still, she's totally pleased to have a grandbaby she can SEE.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Every day, Jean-Luc comes into Demo's room, stares for about an hour, and wanders out. What.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
It's time for his birthday! He has a formal party, which he comes to in his swim trunks. And people boo. A ten year old. At his own birthday.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Not that anyone's formal clothes are particularly nice.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Late to his own cheer, how sad.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Now, now, Jean-Luc, just because he's kind of your clone doesn't give you the right to be rude!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
I cannot abide by a Riker with a buzz cut and no facial hair. It just isn't kosher. Also, I admit it. I slider'ed his eyes back in his head just a little bit. They were sticking out the bottom in neutral face, and he's a spare! He also now Hates the Outdoors.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Return of the Laundry Gnome! See, the thing is, he's been facing the wall like this in Nerys's room for about a week. I couldn't figure it out, until I happened to look at Riker's room with the walls down. D:
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Even Demo has has the painting bug. Sigh.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Uhm. Tiberius, I realize you've never done this before, but, getting in to bed after your water breaks is... wrong.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Teddy: I sense a gross bodily fluid puddle!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
NOW she's up! And now Teddy might actually want to fear for his life.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
They go off to the hospital and Riker freaks out in the kitchen.
Riker: I can sense the laundry machine! It's back there, isn't it? Just waiting to let another one of those THINGS through it's portal to the underworld.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Meet Janissary (+10 awesome to anyone who knows where I got the name!) She is, so appropriately, Brave and Athletic. I love when the random generator throws me a bone.

The next few days are VERY typical. Here is an excerpt:
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Data is still a Stylist, and that guy is Terry's replacement (he retired or something).
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Demo and Tiberius have a good mother-daughter lunch at the diner.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Everyone queues up to bother Janissary.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius paints a trauma-relieving image in tribute to the death of her father.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
It's not easy for her.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Demo: Holy crap I am like 95 and your aging mod only gives us a base life span of 80!!!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Yet she is determined to live on.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
As creepy as this is, the walls are actually just down between the bedroom and bathroom. Meaning he went in there, and they trapped him by getting busy. So... more or less creepy?
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Another day, another venture into the world of being a masked* superhero. Tiberius spots these old men having a heated argument in the park.

*With no mask, since I don't feel like flipping back and forth between makeups.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: You're an evil old man and you should be ashamed! I once gave this gentleman a VERY NICE makeover.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Tiberius: And if you keep up your deplorable behavior, I will run you out of this town! I declare you to be my one true Nemesis, Jeffrey Castor!
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
Justice: Accosting old men while wearing a swimsuit and high heels.
Peregrine Legacy 2.2
A job well done, Tiberius extorts money from the man she "rescued".

Story Updates: Janeway also finally got married, and Jenni died.
 
 
Current Mood: mellowmellow

I love the laundry gnome thingy so much :3

I rather love Riker even though he's a spare. He grew up really well, though I'm sure the eye-pushing-back helped that along a lot.

Yay for a baby finally 8D though I don't know what the name is from, and would be disappointed on myself if I cheated and googled it.
Kimnibfrabbit on September 8th, 2010 02:11 am (UTC)
I kind of adore Riker and Nerys, probably just because I left them be almost entirely. If it wasn't such a pain I'd do double-heir with Riker to avoid kicking him out, but oh well. I'll just check in on him constantly, I guess!

Oh, don't feel bad cheating. In fact, I'd rather people google it and maybe discover something I think is awesome that they just haven't heard much about. But, whether you'll like what she is from is really dependent on your interests.
Judithuber_orange on September 8th, 2010 05:18 am (UTC)
I know what you mean. Sometimes I don't want to kick sims out, like Brianna and Delta, but in the end I did T_T and they keep spawning babies. TOO MANY babies. Coral has 6 nieces and nephews running around. It would have been more if Maverick's wife didn't age into an elder >>;

I apparently fail at cheating. Enlighten me on her name? xD

My next legacy I am going to name Sims after things I like. Maybe then I'd have a better chance remembering my own Sim's names.
Kimnibfrabbit on September 8th, 2010 01:34 pm (UTC)
Hm, well there is that problem. I figured, if my town began to be primarily Peregrine spare spawnlets, I'd export some of them to keep the number down. Besides, how many kids ACTUALLY stay in their home town?

Anyway, she's from the audio drama "I Love Bees", which is not about bees at all. I was part of an "alternate reality game" released to hype the release of Halo 2. I'm not a big Halo player, but I like the storyline and also audio dramas, and also ILB is very little about Halo. Janissary James is one of the four central characters. Anyway, if you like sci-fi stuff at all and don't mind some heavy drama, I totally recommend http://nikon.bungie.org/misc/ilb_reordered/ forever.

Naming your Sims after things you like is the best because then you can also project more personality on them. XD
