crescendo 3.2  




PREVIOUSLY, Remember and Zephyrus went to Bridgeport to find Remember's father, Sid Alcott (sixamsims), and while they succeeded in that endeavour, they also succeeded in procuring fiancé(e)s and children.



SILAS (sixamsims): Um, kittenmittons? Did you forget about us?
Aww, does someone have hurt feelings?


Forget about all that Re and Zeph stuff, let's go back to Redcliffs, where, last we saw them, there was romancing! For almost everyone! Yay!



This is what greeted me immediately upon loading Redcliffs after installing Generations. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOMG. I think this is definitely a valid idea - Chance could definitely benefit from a school focusing on peace and love, and the rest of the family could definitely benefit from Chance being out of the house - but it's not going to happen. Thanks for the lulz though, Noro.



CHANCE: So, I've been thinking, since our parents were all conveniently called away on some vacation that they don't remember entering to win, we should have a party.
I'm sure Chance had nothing to do with rigging said contest.



CHANCE: Oh my God, I can't believe I got that close to you. We were breathing the same air! Gross!
CAIN: My new shoes!
So, in other news, Chance is still a bitch. Just in case you were wondering.


BUT ANYWAY, TEENAGE PARTY, LET'S GO!





First to arrive was Zachary Crescendo, son of Luca and Jacqueline McGuire (siouxpergirl). He looks like he dgaf, basically.
ZACHARY: Teen party, whatever.



Ivy Cosmo (scorpiosims) appears rather unsure about this concept, doesn't she? So unsure that she booked it out of there before Biko could make his way over to her.





Chance also had trouble locking down her lover, so she decided to give some uninvited creeper a thrill.
UNINVITED CREEPER:




Luckily for Cain, who is rather antisocial, I've noticed, Sam Deens (simpairment) did show up, and so they retreated to Cain's parents' room to (GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER) pillow fight. As one does?









Ares was the other teen lucky enough to have his guest show up: Sam's sister, Quincey (simpairment), of course!
ARES: Quincey, my love! These are for you! Do you like them? Do they smell wonderful?
QUINCEY: They're kind of a bit too up my nose for a good smell . . .
ARES: I picked red because it means passion and that's how I fee about you!
. . . this girl has quite the hold over Ares, formerly an asshole of the greatest degree.



Winter has enough evilness to cover the immediate vicinity. Also, she is terrifying.



QUINCEY: GURRRRRLLLLL . . .





WINTER: Hey, you know me, just here for a good time!
I think Winter may have some issues. Serious ones. Really.



It was around this point that the adults magically came home. Thanks for your glitches, Generations.
Aria broke up that teen party by being a ninja, clearly.



ARIANNA: That was a teen party? How boring!
What? Why are you here? You are a child!
This voyeuristic child is another one of Luca and Jackie's, and I like to think they named her after her grandmother, Aria. Awwww. ♥ (Actually, as siouxpergirl can testify, the fact that Luca and Jackie named their two youngest Arianna and Quentin reminds me of the flawfree Martell family in ASOIAF, where there are children named Arianne and Quentyn. This has lead to me referring to my sims by the wrong name many, many times. #firstworldproblems)



Despite the party breaking up early, Luno still managed to steal a moment with Julian Marx (legendarysims), literally behind her father's back.





EMMA KATE: Hmm, I wonder if he'd buy me a drink? He looks like a sucker, I bet he'd go for it.
Emma Kate was also doing things behind people's backs. She was, of course, out doing her usual bar-hopping when she ran into my very own McNulty Bumble-Embassy who takes after his namesake in being at a bar. (Don't worry, I picked a non-spoilery clip because the absolute worst thing I could do would be to ruin The Wire for anyone who hasn't watched it. Which, by the way, YOU SHOULD WATCH.)I may be biased to love him because I love his namesake. I'm just going to get that out of the way right now.





EMMA KATE: Hey there, I couldn't help but notice you stepped out of the bar. Can I perhaps tempt you to come back in? I think hanging by the bar is the place to be and I'd like to be there with you.



MCNULTY: Like I could say no to a beautiful girl - to the bar it is!


Sadly, the bar closed before they could make it back in. McNulty seems like the type to keep a bottle flask on his person (am I projecting his namesake again?), so Emma Kate happily joined him in star-watching in front of the bar.



EMMA KATE: I can almost see a constellation up there! Or is that the sun? I think the sun's coming out.
MCNULTY: Sun's coming up? Shit, better hide my booze - is that a cop over there?



As if his bar-star ways would be anything but a turn-on for fellow bar-star Emma Kate. She jumped on the opportunity to lock that down as her boyfriend. Sorry, ladies of Redcliffs, this one's off the market.



McNulty has a long and prosperous relationship to look forward to, if Emma Kate's parents are any indication. Because they are still totally in love.
GLORY: Honey, will you still love me when I'm old and grey?
SILAS: With that body? It'd be hard not to!








Glory is literally a day or two away from being an elder. I cannot with these wants, fuck me.



I am not nearly as wary when the young adults do it, given that I want them to reproduce. Just not in the house.
MCNULTY: Was that your hand grabbing my ass?
EMMA KATE: Maybe . . . Did you like it?
MCNULTY: Hell yes!



And they proceeded to make out.
ANDREW (samannah): . . . I just wanted to make some grilled cheese for the family.
#too old for this shit



EMMA KATE: Hold that thought, I've got a question for you.
MCNULTY: I think I know where there is going, and the answer is yes, I am tested and I am clean.



EMMA KATE: Good to know, but not what I was going for. You know how Beyoncé said that if you like it, you should put a ring on it?
MCNULTY: Um, a ring?





MCNULTY: OMG A RING!
What, you thought he'd say no? I know that's kind of tradition in this legacy, but McNulty is probably still drunk. I ~strategized



Meanwhile, on the deck, Noro was trying to have a talk with her youngest son, a talk which Ross Deens (simpairment) encroached on.
ROSS: Yeah, good talk, good talk.
BIKO: Really bro?
NORO: . . . Don't you have a daughter of mine to romance or something?
Why, yes, Noro, yes, he does!



CHANCE: Hey, hot stuff, how you doin'?
I'm always so proud when she hits on someone who isn't related to her.
. . . I can't believe we've come to the point where this is something I have to be proud of.





MCNULTY: Hey, Emma Kate? This hot tub is nice and all, but the fact that your teenaged cousin is about to get more than we are means we should move it inside, amirite?
EMMA KATE: But bubbles!



I agree with McNulty, you two need to move it inside. And I say that in the most innuendo-esque way possible because you are cute and blond and I want to see your bbs.



Close enough.



That's more like it! Off with you, head to Aria's bed as you're wont to do.



CHANCE: So Ross, now that we're alone, I have something I need to ask you. Do you think you'd consent to being my boyfriend? I'm starting to get a lot of judgmental looks for stalking you so much, I think I might be judged less harshly if we were actually dating.
What a sell!



He said yes, of course, as any self-respecting male would do.



ARES: Romance in my house? Eff this noise, I'm calling Quincey.



I really, really hope they use some strong chlorine in that thing, because I'm sure it's just crawling with various germs and STIs by now.



ARES: You know, I think that one day, I'm going to steal the biggest diamond I can find and put it on a ring for you. Just so you know.
QUINCEY: Mmm, diamonds.


The next morning, something weird happened.



No, not this; this is not only expected but also absolutely and completely normal in this house.



I meant this.
GLORY: What the hell is wrong with you? How could you do that? What was possibly going through your mind at that moment?
LUNO: LOUD NOISES!



LUNO: Wait, I don't even know what you were yelling about, Aunt Glory.
GLORY: Come to think of it, I don't know either. Hmm.
Yeah. I think it might've been that she stopped Luno from going to school so she could yell at her for skipping school? Which seems somewhat counterproductive to me, but okay. MOVING ON.



Since Emma Kate's romance was moving along as only booze can do swimmingly, I decided that Sunday should get on with romancing Gilbert Storms (vayleen). And I do mean "get on."
GILBERT: Hey, Sunday. It's been a while, how've you been?
Somehow, Sunday didn't swoon over this look he's giving her. It's okay, I'll swoon enough for both of us. *swoon*



That's some really intense hand-holding there, Sunday.
SUNDAY: Is that the look you give to Alexis as well?



GILBERT: Oh, you just had to bring Alexis into this, did you? I have a new look for you now: this one.



WAIT, WHAT? WHEN AND HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? FUUUUU.
Apparently Gilbert had started dating Sunday's cousin Alexis. You'd think that'd be the type of SP pop-up I would notice, but apparently not.



The camera was drawn away from those two and their, erm, issues to see Emma Kate pop. Well, fuck, guess I should get on that wedding thing then, shouldn't I?



GLORY: So I hear you're about to become my son-in-law.
BIKO: Him? Is he funny or something?





CAIN: Haha, hating McNulty, that's the cool thing to do, right? Right?
Siriusly, guys? Neither of you have ever even spoken to McNulty nor has he ever done anything inappropriate. WHAT GIVES?



BIKO & CAIN: Don't mind us, we're just here doing everything in unison. HAY GURL HAY!





Oh, good, Ivy's here, therefore putting an end to their creepiness. If you've been following my tumblr, you know that Cain will do no such thing to mimic Biko in this.


In other romantic news, it is time for Emma Kate and McNulty to tie the knot. Hopefully Cain and Biko have gotten over their . . . whatever in regards to McNulty because this wedding is happening. YOU TWO WILL FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE.



MCNULTY: From the moment I first saw you, I thought you were really beautiful. I mean, yeah, I was pretty drunk, but now that I've sobered up, I think you're even more beautiful.
EMMA KATE: Good save, but why is he wearing swim trunks?
Because this is a classy wedding. The only reason it's under the arch is because I wanted to try it out. I don't intend to let that affect the classiness quota here though. Britta shotgun wedding ftw!



MCNULTY: Okay, this vow thing is boring. Can we speed things along to the kissing part?
EMMA KATE: You hear that, baby? In just a few minutes you're going to be legitimate!





BOOM MARRIED.



CAIN: Cool wedding, bros! Ares' girlfriend is hot!
Oh God, why is there a plate of waffles on the ground? This wedding is less classy than even I expected.


Well, either way, Emma Kate is married off. Why don't we see if I can do the same for her sister?



Gilbert was still trying to play off the whole "hooking up with your cousin" thing.
GILBERT: So Alexis and I had a thing. It's cool.
SUNDAY: It's cool?
GILBERT: Yeah, I mean, I can totally call it off with Alexis and then commit to you. What do you say?
PAPARAZZO: Gilbert Storms is going to sever ties with that hot blonde in order to hook up with her cousin who often pees herself? What a scoop!



SUNDAY: Commit to me, you say? Okay, let's do this then.
GILBERT: Holy crap, an engagement ring!



SUNDAY: Yes, of course! As soon as I heard you say that you want to commit to me, I just knew it was the perfect time!



SUNDAY: Wait. It is the perfect time, isn't it? Gilbert?
Oh, Sunday. Perhaps take a page out of your sister's book and get your intended really, really drunk before popping the question? It also worked for your uncle Logan though Logan is so flawless that I think any proposal would've worked for him.



Sunday stayed at Gilbert's throughout the night, trying to butter him up before proposing again. She stayed there so long, in fact, that the paparazzo began to starve. Serves him right.
JULIAN: How dare he starve to death on OUR lot? I ought to eat him myself!



JULIAN: Did I say that aloud? Hope nobody heard that . . .
I love Julian. Forrealz. Luno had quite the unexpected surge in the heir poll, tying with Ares for second, and I think part of the credit for that has to go to the flawlessness that is Julian Marx.



Okay, I think she's waited a sufficient amount of time (maybe); take two!



OMG GUYS, HE SAID YES!




On a completely unrelated note, it was at this very moment that I got the pop-up of "Sunday discovered that Gilbert has the insane trait!" NO SHIT. I regret to inform you that I was too busy loling to ensure that I actually had Fraps up and going, and therefore did not get a screencap. The moment lives on in my head though and it was GLORIOUS.





I tested out the wedding arch on Emma Kate and McNulty; these two get a more traditional wedding for legacy spares.



Gilbert joins the main Crescendo household just in time to see Chance wearing a slutty dress for prom!
CHANCE: I bet Remember never looked this hot. Ha!



Luno was also very . . . excited for prom? Actually, I think this is more her "nervous" look, as I'm pretty sure this, erm, pose came about due to her having a freak out. Or maybe I'm mixing that up with the fact that it caused me to freak out. Either way.


So, prom. It glitched on me something horrible. Therefore, I have very few shots of the events of prom, but I'll share my two favourites.



WUT. Rigged the vote, clearly.



I love the exclamation point at the end of this. It makes me think that this was something Luno was really excited about. Which, knowing her, she probably was.



And that was prom. As for the missing sims, we know Julian was busy creepin' on the paparazzo and can assume that Biko and Ivy were making out behind the school or something. As for Cain, well:
P.S. How much do I love that both Ross and Ares are doing traditional girl poses? Oh, boys. ♥



He was busy being a complete and total BAMF. Seriously, how intense does he look, doing his martial arts pose in front of such an ominous looking sky? BAMF, I say!



Again, the camera draws my attention to Sunday's POP. I'm very excited for the spare babies!



EMMA KATE: Hey, babe, I think this house might be getting a bit crowded for us. What say we move out with my pregnant sister and her husband and make our own crowded house?



I think Sunday and Gilbert may be up for that.
GILBERT: Hot tub's broken? Yeah, there's nothing keeping me here now.
And with that, the four of them unceremoniously moved out. Don't worry, I will be stalking their resulting spawn, as per usual.





After moving out two of the girls because they were pregnant, you can imagine the look of panic on my face upon seeing this. I imagine it was something like this:



But not to worry, Chance isn't pregnant. She was just fucking with me. As she does.



In other bathroom escapades, Luno decided to booby trap the shower. The intended victim: Ares. Apparently, in one of his many, many mood swings, he decided to start snubbing Luno. Given that she's basically been snubbed her whole life, I don't know why she took so badly to that, but she did.



Anyway, let's draw out attention out of the bathroom and into the living room - it's Glory's birthday! I'm really not ready for her to be an elder. *sigh*
GLORY: Yay, Andrew, you're here to watch me age up! I couldn't ask for a better audience!



SILAS: . . . I'm here too.
It's as if Silas is just now noticing that his wife and his brother-in-law are exceptionally close. In fact, for a good while their relationship with one another was higher than their relationships with their respective spouses. But they never rolled any wants for anything more than friendship, so it was cute, not creepy. (I don't often get to say that about this family; I'm relishing the moment!)



GLORY: So? Do I look fabulous?
Um . . .



That's better, though Glory's expression would seem to suggest she thinks otherwise. I can really see the resemblance between her and her father now. Well, I could always see it, but elderhood is magnifying it.



GLORY: I know I've lost my looks, but-
SILAS: You look beautiful, honey. You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.
D'awwww. ♥



LIAM!



Looks like Glory won't be the only elder Crescendo woman to get some lovin' tonight!



ARIA: Hmm, should I engage in a romantic evening with my husband or break up my grandson's romantic evening with his girlfriend?
Yes, that is Ares and Quincey heading to the treehouse in the background. I'm sure they're just going to play innocently in there, you should go for Liam (kittehbomb), Aria.





LOLOMG THIS IS HER GOING FOR HIM. Apparently sims can't kiss very well whilst standing on slopes. ~the more you know



They took to star-gazing on a flat surface instead.
ARIA: I'm glad to see you, Liam. All the grandkids are falling in love around me, and it's made me realize how much I miss having someone myself.
Yes, let's just forget about Ezra for the sake of the moment, kthxbai.



LIAM: I've got something to tell you: I watch you whenever I can, even when you don't see me floating around out here. I miss you too.



ARIA: One day we'll be together again, out there in the stars. You can go out there, right?
LIAM: Sure. Together, we can try.
ARIA: I really do miss you, Liam.



Inspired by her supernatural night as well as Liam's confession that he watches her all the time, Aria paints a highly relevant, not-at-all creepy picture. UM . . .




But forget that (IF YOU CAN, IT IS SCARRING), it's Ares' birthday!



CHANCE: Yes, Ares' birthday! There will be nobody to hold him back from evil-doing as an adult, oh happy day!
Very exciting, yes. Very - WAIT, WHO'S THAT BEHIND YOU?



WINTER. DAY-UM.




You can safely assume that her twin sister Asha (I'm again going to assume that these are more ASOIAF names, tyvm) looks exactly the same, except without the purple eyes and ELF EARS. I hate to favour one over the other but: Winter > Asha.



Also on the gorgeous cousin front, we have another one of Luca and Jackie's, Michaela. Who, like Winter, is also evil. I'm starting to suspect that Ares uninvited all non-evil cousins from his birthday party, given thatWinter, Michaela, and Michaela's twin brother Rylan all showed up, but very few of the other cousins did. I'M ONTO YOU, ARES.



Speaking of evil cousins . . .
RYLAN: An older evil cousin to start ridding the world of good? Excellent!
CHANCE: He's rather attractive when he's plotting . . . Hey, Rylan, how YOU doin'?
NO. NO NO NO NO NO. Boundaries, Chance, BOUNDARIES.



RYLAN: Look, Chance, I'm flattered, really, but we're cousins. This is not okay.
THANK YOU.


Let's move onto some more normal party interactions with the guests, shall we?



Neither of these two were actually invited to the party. Jared Montmartre-Fitzgerald I'm cool with (he's the very cute son of my very own Aidan and Lainey), but excited townie vampire, I'm less sure about.
EXCITED TOWNIE VAMPIRE: WOOT, PARTY!
At least he, of all the guests, is enthusiastic. So that's a plus.



I guess you could say Ross is enthusiastic as well.
ROSS: Haha, you're getting old! Have fun with the wrinkles!
ARES: As soon as I blow these out, you're getting a candle up your ass, Ross Deens.
Yeah, yeah, get on with it, Ares.






HOLY SHIT. ARES. YOU DONE GOOD.



Mmm, yes, showering . . . let's watch!



ARES: Hmm, something feels a bit off here . . .



ARES: Wait, what's this? BLUE?



ARES: Whatthefuckwhatthefuckwhatthefuck, is it blue?





ARES: Quincey is coming over in five minutes and my hair is blue! WHAT THE FUCK?



And he autonomously jumped back into the shower immediately. Apparently growing up supermexafoxyawesomehot made Ares rather vain. I don't really blame him, tbqh.



He managed to jump out of the shower for the second time just as Quincey got there. Well-played, Ares!
ARES: Hey, baby, thanks for stopping by. You're what I wished for on my birthday, you know.
QUINCEY: Your birthday . . . wow . . .
It's okay, Quincey, I won't make fun of you for being speechless around Ares right now. He's rather ~dazzling.



ARES: You know, that's not strictly true. You're not all I wished for on my birthday, actually. Which leads me to a question.



ARES: Quincey, will you give me the best birthday present of all and marry me?



ARES: So? What do you say?



As if she'd say no.





I have a feeling that Quincey is going to enjoy Ares' new great kisser trait. Just a thought.



And they take it to Aria's bed. Because that is the bed for everyone, even those who already have their own double bed! Note: Ares is not one of those.



Aria is too distracted to notice because it is now Biko and Chance's birthday. Hey, I did warn you that there'd be lots of birthdays in this update.
BIKO: Hey, kittenmittons, Chance is effectively stealing my thunder again!
She kind of walked all over you for your whole life, sry2say.



But hey, if it's any consolation prize, her aim? Not so good.



And here we have Biko, who rolled charismatic. I could see that. He's still very, very cute, of course.



And Chance, with her new dramatic trait. LOL YOU THINK? I love her array traits, I really, really do. ♥



ARES: HAY GUISE, I WAS TOTALLY HERE THE WHOLE TIME. BIRTHDAYS, YAY.



The twins chatted over birthday cake.
CHANCE: So, you're kind of into trees and nature and all that, right?
BIKO: Yeah, I'm pretty big on science, just like Ares.
CHANCE: Oh, that's cool.
ANDREW: Oh my God, are they bonding? Please don't let them be bonding.



Andrew didn't have much time to fret over this admittedly troubling development, as it was his own birthday the very next day.



ANDREW: My hair hurts.
Ah, the perils of sim birthdays.



So Ivy came over, and apparently the fact that she had dinner or something with another man was enough to send Biko into a jealous rage. Despite the fact that he and Ivy are only romantic interests and not at all exclusive.



BIKO: How dare you do this to me, you heartless strumpet?!
IVY: "Heartless strumpet?" Biko, it was one date - and you and I aren't even official!
RIGHT?



BIKO: Oh . . . Yeah, you're right. I guess I overreacted a bit. What say we pick up where we left off, hey?



BIKO: C'mon, Ivy, give me a kiss!
IVY: Don't you think we should talk about this jealousy of yours? I don't know if a kiss is the best idea right now, Biko.



BIKO: But I want to kiss you! Ivy, don't leave me hanging here!



LUNO: OH MY GAW, SO MUCH DRAMA, I CAN'T TAKE IT!
Thank you for that interlude, Luno.



BIKO: I don't understand, why won't you let me kiss you? I apologized and everything; I just want us back how we were.



IVY: "Back how we were?" Boring!
BIKO: Well, maybe not exactly how we were.



BIKO: Oh, fuck it, I'm going for it.
YEAAHHHHH. YOU GO, GLEN COCO, FOUR FOR YOU.



IVY: Well, I guess we can try making it official.
BIKO: That's what I thought.


We interrupt this reconciliation for graduation. Thanks, game, great timing. I'm pretty sure my game just pulled a Kanye on me.





CHANCE: Yes, blame Kanye, excellent . . .
If she thinks she's getting out of this house quickly to begin her evildoing, she is sadly mistaken. I promised vayleen I'd keep her around a while, which wasn't at all a hard promise to make. And her intended joined the firefighter career, fuuuuuu.



BIKO: 'Sup?
Biko. Buddy. Please promise me you'll never wear a hat like that again.
BIKO: Done.
No, but seriously, EA, what is up with this choice of graduation clothes? Whatever, let's get Biko changed and back on track. Now, where were we?



Ah, that looks about right.



Ivy agreed to make things very, very official, much to Aria's (?!?!) apparent dismay and disgust.
ARIA:




BIKO: C'mere and give me a hug!
IVY: Oh my God, Biko!
ARIA: Is she funny or something?
I realize I linked the exact same thing earlier in this update, but this is pretty much how my mind works. I QUOTE/REFERENCE THINGS. Also, given that Biko was the one to say it earlier, I thought it fitting that it should be said about him now. But mostly I just really like Arrested Development.





Seriously, Aria, what is your problem? You have the hopeless romantic trait, why is it hibernating so hard? Je ne comprends pas!



In other news, this happened. Which means that it's time for this:







Shotgun wedding numero dos! I can't wait to see the resulting spawn, you guys - Ares and Quincey are so gorgeous; there's not a bad gene in that match. ♥



Might as well keep moving things along at the same pace, yeah?






BIKO: Oh, my nonexistent ring is so beautiful! Grandma, don't you think my wedding ring is great? Ivy picked it out.
ARIA: Yes, great . . . *vacant stare*



BIKO: I can't believe how lucky I am! She married me, Grandma; I'm the luckiest man alive! Take that, unlucky trait!
ARIA: Yes, so lucky . . .
And with that bit of luck, it's time for Biko, Ares, and their respective spouses to move out. Bye, boys! I'll miss the constant source of amusement they provided. ♥


Speaking of spares that have moved out and their spouses . . .


Your "little honey-pot?" WTF? His marriage with Emma Kate is still perfectly intact, btw; no negative pop-ups about that.



Oh my God, McNulty. There are no words.





LUNO. THERE ARE WORDS. AND NONE OF THEM ARE FLATTERING.
LUNO: I don't think I can make it to the toilet - help!
THE TOILET IS LITERALLY ABOUT TWO FEET BEHIND YOU. IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT THERE, YOU ARE BEYOND ANY HELP I CAN GIVE YOU.


She didn't make it.



LUNO: Bladder control problems at my age? The fuck is this?



LUNO: WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME, GODS ABOVE?



LUNO: If anyone finds out about this, I will eat your babies, bitch.
Duly noted.



ARIA: Did you just hear that scream, Noro? It sounded like one of your kids; maybe you should check on her.
NORO: Yeah, that idea? I'm not really feeling it. I'm sure she'll sort herself out.



NORO: kittenmittons, I feel like my children currently in the house aren't the best representatives of my skills as a parent. Can we bring back that competent one, please?
When she asks me with that face, how could I ever say no?



REMEMBER: And here we are. Home, sweet home.



PUMPKIN (simmply_anna): This looks nice. I can't wait to meet your family, Zeph!
ZEPHYRUS: Oh, yes, you can. Trust me on this, you may want to wait.
And she will have to wait - only until the next update, though! Oh, Pumpkin. YOU ARE NOT PREPARED.


NEXT TIME, Pumpkin and Fluffy (simmply_anna) move in, along with the children spawned by Zephyrus and Remember (not together. This isn't doylelegacy's game, after all!). I'm sure there'll be some 'splaining to do. Along with the Crescendo staples of woohooing, babies, and birthdays. And yes, you will finally get to see Myla and January out of larvae form. Which you will already have seen if you follow my tumblr. But still! Exciting!


All three of Ares, Biko, and Chance will be up for download later today, I'd think. Anyone looking for an evil sim, this will be your lucky day!


As always, thanks for hanging in there while I take forever to update. You are all flawless and fierce and I appreciate your comments so very much. ♥ And if you aren't yet aware, I do have a tumblr I use to post sims-related stuff, including many, many spoilers for the Crescendos. So if you're eager to see random craziness and/or generation four, please feel free to follow me at simbot. Until next time, lovelies!

Ares. Ahem. I always knew I liked him. Even with blue hair. Super fierce. Biko and Chance grew up nicely as well, of course. Biko's such a cutie pie.

This whole update was so lovey-dovey. I love it. So many cute couples; I can't wait to see spare babies!

I love you for every Arrested Development reference. For real. I used my finest (only) AD icon just for you.

It did make it a lot easier to forgive him for being such a little shit when he grew up looking like that, that's for sure. I think he could rock any hair colour, that pixel-hottie!

Haha, wasn't it? I was basically like, "Okay, you all have to get out of the house. TIME TO BE MARRIED OFF!" And yes, there will be spare babies. If they don't have enough to satisfy me, I will Master Controller them. *insert evil laugh here*

AWWW YEAH, BREAKING OUT THE AD ICON. It is a fine AD icon, the finest of fine! I didn't realize how many AD references/gifs I used until I looked back at this update. Needless to say, I don't regret it. XD

D'awh. Bikoooooo. Awh. :3

McNulty, why are you such a skeeze?

Lovelyyy update. :D

Biko did turn out very cute, didn't he? He's such a sweetheart too. <3

Haha, he just wants to share his good looks with the world! ;) ngl, I'm kind of loving McNulty's sluttiness, if only because of his namesake. (Yes, I'm totally projecting but whatever, it amuses me!)

Thank you, love! <3

OMG, the couples in this update. So cute, for real. Really excited to see the spawn--especially Ares'. (But they're all so gorgeous, so...ya know.)

Glad to see Remember back, (and the purple-haired child--that's something I've been waiting for, definitely.)

Awesome update, as usual!

Aww, thank you! I'm pretty happy with my matchmaking skills for this generation, ngl. I'm definitely looking forward to Ares' children as well; I know I'll be stalking them throughout the town!

Me too! I'm so happy Re won heir, I've realized she is definitely my favourite. <3 Said purple-haired child is almost a teen in my game so I really need to get it together and update!

Thank you for reading! <3

WOOO! I've been waiting for this update and it did not disappoint! :D So much love I don't even know where to begin!

Hehe the unison and Ivy bailing on the party xD Glad she and Biko worked things out, Bless jealous Biko. Hehe. Such gorgeous sims.... now bring on the babies! :D

Gah, I'm sorry to have kept you waiting for it - I'm so bad at updating, omg. But hey, on the bright side, I'm glad to hear it didn't disappoint!

Biko was ultra-adorable this update and I think a lot of the credit for that goes to the ultra-adorable Ivy. ;) Jealous Biko came out of nowhere, though there was never any question if they'd work it out - you know I'd make them! They do have one child so far, a girl, and she is absolutely perfect; I'll have to show her off to you soon. XD

DID YOU SEE THE NEW TRAILER FOR MISFITS? I just about died when Kelly asked what the fuck brunch is - or, I'm sorry, "the fook is boonch?" Love it.

Aww, will you be getting Generations soon? I still have that extra copy that EA mistakenly sent me, so we'd have to look into shipping and if the discs are the same for UK computers vs. Canada, but I could send it to you if you want.

Oh my goodness there are SO MANY CHILDREN in this legacy wow.

I really kind of love Luno, she cracks me up. Also, Chance will be the most stunning Emperor of Evil ever. I also sort of love Ares and Quincey together.

Also, wtf kind of "service" is McNulty offering?! Bahaha<3
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on September 16th, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC)
I know, it's kind of overwhelming. But at least it keeps things interesting!

I adore her too! Super-cute and brings the lulz? What's not to like? I think Chance's cousin Winter may give her a run for that title - being evil never looked so damn good.

Haha, thank Twallan's mods for that! McNulty is literally the town gigolo, which is hilarious.

omg, the Jon Lajoie gif, ahahaha! XD

as usual, i was lol'ing throughout the entire update. Generations does some WEIRD SHIT to your game. one of the Doyle children got in major trouble for no reason once, and sent to the corner. i think it might have been Katie >.>

i gotta say, Ares... how YOU doin' ;D come over this-a-way baby, unf

and McNulty, double-you-tee-eff, man? and exactly what were you being paid for? *is suspicious*

OMG RE AND ZEPH :D :D :D *cough* ahem... >.>

JON LAJOIE IS A CANADIAN TREASURE. You know, I am becoming more and more convinced that you and I are actually the same person. Spooky.

Generations lured me into a false sense of security where I had absolutely no issues for a week or two and then BOOM. EVERYTHING BREAKS. Haha, I could see Casey sending Katie to the corner for no reason - he's just trying to be a good dad, don't hate. (P.S. I missed your heir poll but I downloaded all the kids and holy shit, is Lily ever supermegafoxyawesomehot. O_o)

lol, I would say that since you already have Con married in, you may not want to use Ares now, but then I remember Con's origins as an incest-baby. I'm kind of hoping Ares' children will be ugly so I won't regret sending him away, but we both know that's not going to happen.

A man's gotta use what God gave him, don't hate.

JUST WAIT TILL YOU SEE WHAT I HAVE PLANNED FOR WHEN PETS COMES OUT. JUST WAIT. reandzephhidingfromsocietyinappaloosaplainswheretheycanhaveallthechildrentheywantwithoutbeingjudged Wait, what?

Ares grew up. My reaction is thus summed up:



And HOLY CRAP Chance is GORGEOUS. I mean, I thought she was very pretty before, but she's just a bombshell now.



P.S.- Where did you get Winter's CC hair? I've been looking for that EVERYWHERE.

LOL, don't hinder Glory and Silas' wishes! DON'T GET IN THE WAY OF THEIR LOVE. BBs GALORE!

I dig Noro's parenting skills. Poor Luno, forever in the background.

Aria and Liam ♥ Their little star gazing talk reminded me of Dany/Drogo. THEY WILL RIDE INTO THE ENDLESS NIGHT TOGETHER.



That Edward painting scared me. ARIA, WE NEED TO HAVE A TALK.

I like how you had a mass exodus of people from your house, only to gain four adults and two more children. THIS LEGACY IS A NEVER ENDING CIRCLE OF FLAWLESSNESS, TBQH.
set phasers to "LOVE ME": emilia + kitkittenmittons on September 16th, 2011 09:18 pm (UTC)
LOLOLOLOL YES! I love how the two biggest douchenozzles in the house grew up absolutely stunning. It's like they're trying to make up for their personalities. But hey, it netted me a Robb gif, so it's all worth it. ;D

Winter's hair is Newsea's Wishing Tree (I think that's what it's called) and I use the retexture by ageiha. I'm on my work computer so I can't find it right now, but if you have any trouble finding it, let me know and I can track down the exact link tonight!

I AM HINDERING THOSE WISHES FOR ALL TIME. THEY CAN KINDLY FUCK OFF WITH THEIR BABY WISHES AND FOCUS ON GRANDBABIES, TYVM. So basically, yes, bbs galore indeed. -_-

Luno does her best to stand out by being the derpiest derp who ever derped, basically. <3 LOVE HER.

OMGOMGOMG HOW DID I NOT THINK OF MY SUN AND STARS AND MOON OF MY LIFE? I fail at life. Horribly so.

I honestly don't know what's up with that Edward painting. I didn't sell it though - I'll probably hang it somewhere in the house because it is hilarious. And scary. But mostly . . . I don't know what it is more of, actually.

CIRCLE OF FLAWLESSNESS = OUR LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER (and Richard and Kit. I will allow our circle to become a square for them.)

Glory is a very cute old lady. Normally I think my sims kind of lose their luster as elders but this family is proving me very, very wrong.

um, yeah Chance? She needs to get in my game now. The very definition of flawless right there.

Emma Kate's bar-star hubby is so perfect for her XD Except for his new, erm, career move? No words, no words.

And this is possibly the funniest thing I have seen in a legacy ever. Oh, Luno. Never change bb.

Great update as always!
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on September 16th, 2011 09:38 pm (UTC)
I love Re as a heir, I really really do, but part of me is always going to regret having to let go of Chance. SHE IS PERFECT. If I don't get a chance to update my download page tonight, I can definitely send you to her, at the very least. Who am I to try to stop someone from unleashing the havoc that is Chance in their own game? ;)

I figured Emma Kate wouldn't be the type to go for some boring, lovey-dovey guy. Give her a guy to buy her shots and she's good to go! Of course, he does need to make money to buy those shots so . . . Heh.

I JUST ABOUT DIED WHEN I SAW HER FACE DO THAT, NO LIE. Words, there are none. <3

Yay, fellow Firefly lover! It brings me great joy how Nathan Fillion is always adding little nods to Firefly in Castle and everything. It helps dull the pain of no more Firefly.

Ok, so Tumblr has kept me from reading this thoroughly and leaving a comment.

I'm just going to say right now that Cain has become one of my favorites. I don't know what it is, I just love him.

Ah, Rylan and Michaela. I adore both of you. ♥
Wtf with McNulty though? I know you told me Michaela was the town tart, but still.

I feel so bad for Luno sometimes. I just want to hug her.

Lulz. Kissing on a slope makes for awesome pictures.

All of the kids did GOOD! Unf!

ZEPHYRUS: Oh, yes, you can. Trust me on this, you may want to wait.

Lulz. ilu Zeph.
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on September 16th, 2011 09:44 pm (UTC)
Haha, I feel you on that. Boy, do I feel you. AND I BLAME YOU, ALSO. :p jk, kinda.

Cain is pretty hilarious, it's true. I love how unflappable he is about absolutely everything - nothing bothers him, he just keeps on truckin'! Suffice it to say, I in no way regret letting Glory have that last pregnancy. <3 Especially because it wasn't more triplets.

I seriously need to send them your way. Everytime I scroll by Michaela in my sim bin, I'm like "Who is that gorgeous piece of pixels?!" Oh, and Quentin grew up yesterday - he is so fucking beefy; definitely Luca's boy.

I forgot about Michaela being the town tart! I think Winter was too? Why does evil = slutty? But yes, McNulty is the town gigolo. Well, one of them. The other one is the townie who happens to be Carolina's baby daddy, but being that he has five kids to pay child support too, I can't blame him.

Don't worry, you know she'll get all the hugs she could ever want from Julian. ;) And I give her lots of virtual hugs because, contrary to what these updates may lead you to believe, I love her something fierce. Especially because of her expressions. <3

I think I have a picture of Luno and Julian kissing on a slope. I am never flattening their backyard, it is known.

Zeph love. You can tell he's a hopeless romantic because he's trying to save his girl from the pain. ;)

(Let's just pretend I'm not years late commenting on this.)

Yes, Noro, let's enroll Chance in the school of Peace and Love. SHE'LL FIT RIGHT IT! Maybe Noro is still holding out hope that she can love the Evil out of Chance, like she was when Chance was still a toddler. (I only now this because I reread your legacy a few weeks ago. :P) Anyway, I always have to bring it for my girl. I love her crazy face. From flirting with her cousin, to convincing Ross to be her bf just so the stalking will seem more normal. AND, GURL, SHE AGED UP DRAMATIC! How perfect is that?! So perfect! I'm going to cry when you finally have to give her up. :)

I'm glad Emma Kate had some romance this update, even if her man is a "professional", if you know what I mean. I've always had a soft spot for her. ♥

Gilbert. Player. On one hand, I can't fault him because Alexis is flawless and fine, and she's Logan's, who's still my favorite. But I still blame him for that face Sunday made, poor bb. I'm glad he finally came around, even if he might not have been all that lucid at the time. ("Sunday has learned Gilbert is Insane" - LOL!) Bring on the spares! :D

Glory is such a cute-yet-badass elder lady. ♥ I remember when she was that age in my game, and how much I thought she looked like Luca. XD

I've told you this before, but I adore that interaction between Aria and Liam. It's so romantic, it's heartbreaking. ♥♥♥
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on October 1st, 2011 10:26 pm (UTC)
Ha, as if I, of all people, could ever judge you for that! ;D

I thought of it more as wishful thinking on Noro's part. Or a wish that they would teach Chance about peace and love. We're way past that though! (omg, I don't remember Chance as a toddler other than creeping up on Remember - YOU KNOW MY OWN LEGACY BETTER THAN I DO!) Chance really is something special. ♥♥

Me too. I feel like she's the type of girl to appreciate a professional like that. ;)

That's it exactly: it's Alexis. I really can't blame anyone for going after her, no matter how much it may have pained my actual legacy children. I don't think Gilbert's ever totally lucid, is he? lol OH, and SPOILER ALERT: Gilbert and Sunday's girls are freaking gorgeous! Storms lips on both of them! XD

She does! I miss Luca . . . he died in my game a while back. :'(

Thanks, love; it can never be said enough. It warms my heart. ♥
