I have been nominated, very kindly, by several lovely simmers whose stories I adore. Alas their comments telling me about this have been somewhat buried in my notifications over the last week or so. But I thank you from the bottom of my heart 😀
Congratulations! You’ve been nominated for a totally legit award. Get a gold star and stick it on your forehead like a boss.
2. Share FIVE of your favourite moments from your legacy/challenge/story so far.
3. Nominate 3-5 blogs to do the same.
This is sort of the moment that it all began. Jessica, half asleep, stubs her toes on the kitchen door when surprised by a cute stranger sitting on their kitchen counter after a very athletic night with her flatmate.
And it started the joke about Jessica flashing her knickers at James, so it’s here for that reason too!
I’m forever disappointed in myself that I couldn’t keep up with the uni friends, but it happens every generation and honestly this one was long enough. Just know that they’re all happily living their lives and they are in touch with Jessica and James!
My BABE. All time favourite character of mine, and most other readers on the previous iteration of this legacy, but I also included this picture because the prologues are, so far, the most important part of what I’ve written. They take place in the present, and the story of the family is being told through letters and memories left to him in a parcel.
He’s a sarcastic, mysterious asshole, with more power than sense half the time, but his heart is usually in the right place even when he’s royally fucking up. Also, he loves chocolate. And hates cats, because somehow he’s allergic despite being a vampire. Poor sod.
*sniff* This is the picture where Jessica told James she was pregnant, the last picture of the generation, I believe, with the ominous message that her family has a history of multiples. Neither of them suspected triplets, and then twins. Mwahahah! But they wouldn’t have it any other way.
I would. Never again…. Or, not until generation three and four where we have four kids each time. Fuck, why did I do this to myself?
Okay, so this picture isn’t the best in terms of setting, lighting etc, but it’s important to me because:
a) Lukas. My secretive vampire son running from his past. Unknowingly, he’ll fall back in with the family before long.
b) this picture is around the time Loxley started getting close to figuring out the mystery of Lukas, but to us, we know he’s a vampire. And so the family gets closer to becoming irrevocably linked with the supernatural world.
I was going to be a tease and plop a picture of my previous iteration of this legacy here, but alas photobucket has changed its rules and won’t host to third party sites. What a menace. Instead I’ll be less of a tease and leave you with the picture I currently use to head the SOL archive page:
I’m ridiculously proud of this simple picture, but more so because it kind of hints at the characters of each of them, as much as you can in a family portrait! The placement of Faye was more than just making sure she stood out as our heir, but to symbolise the emotional separation of her family from her.
Look at me, getting all psychological.
I think most people have already been tagged. I shall attempt to tag people I haven’t seen do the memory lane challenge yet, a couple of them on simblr.
- A Clover and A Bee. Owly is one of my favourite writers and is starting a sims comic on her simblr which I am SO HYPED for. I’m 5eva jealous of her talent.
- DRSE by Futurecarrie. Nothing special to say about this one. Carrie sucks. JK, she’s gr8 and may kill the sim I have lovingly gifted to her in her horror story if I say anything mean 😛
- The Homily Legacy by simaroosimblr. A really good mix of storytelling and gameplay, with lovable, quirky characters!
