crescendo 1.4  

PREVIOUSLY, the triplets aged up into very cute children. Aria confirmed my worst fears by being pregnant again due to autonomous risky woohoo, and even worse, gave birth to yet another set of triplets: three girls, Noro, Tautou, and Archer. Daisy horrified her sister and then scared the shit out of both her and Luca. Glory turned to Luca for friendship, despite his complete and total ineptness at talking to a young girl, and began to avoid Daisy. Logan kept to himself, and cemented his place as the best big brother ever, while their parents ignored their five eldest children in favor of their three youngest daughters. And then the first set of triplets began to age up.

I kinda really love the sparkly jump they do. Daisy, of course, does not share my enthusiasm.

Um, Glory for heir, anyone? Seriously, I am ~awed. She got the good sense of humor trait, which - yeah, you need that to survive Daisy. She also got my undying love, as she is unique-looking, but still pretty. She's very similar facially to Luca, though her nose is definitely more of Liam's than Luca's is, but that just means she's a good mix of her parents. And gorgeous.

GLORY: Growing up to be this beautiful takes a lot out of you!

. . . I am afraid to turn him around.

Teen Jude, with his brand new party animal trait. Cute! His face is quite Aria-like but with Liam's nose, as well as eye and hair color. He also has the skinniest arms I've ever seen on a male.

Lastly, Daisy grows up ignored behind both the table and Aria. It'd be sad if it wasn't Daisy.

Unflirty? No shit. I don't think anyone would WANT to flirt with this little ray of sunshine. She is pretty strongly Aria as well, although with the nose and lips, it's much more evident. I hope she'll grow into those features a bit better, though the combination of her features does seem to make her default expression pretty bitchy. A+ for that.

Glory and Jude with their parents' hairstyles, just to prove that they're both quite different than the parent they each share hair color and gender with. Just for fun.

Triplets in ~action immediately after aging up. Glory still makes the best faces, Jude still keeps to himself, and Daisy still constantly looks like she's plotting the immediate demise of every single one of her family members.
DAISY: Who says I'm not?
That's my girl.

I decided that a teenaged boy shouldn't be forced to share a room with his two sisters, especially when those two sisters are as good a friends as Daisy and Glory. So the girls move into Luca and Logan's old room, and Luca and Logan move in with Jude. Robot wall mural!
JUDE: They're just . . . sleeping. Not scaring people or being scared, not arguing, just sleeping.
I know, it's a magical thing, isn't it? Roommates that get along. You're welcome, Jude.

The boys' room with its massive robot mural has proven to be quite the hot spot. Although this picture is really just thrown in to laugh at Liam's face. The hell, dude?
GLORY: Oh my God, Dad looks like he's having a stroke. Must. Not. Look.

DAISY: You should lift some weights, buff up those stick arms.
Daisy! Why are you being a bitch to Jude, of all people? He's wonderful to have around the house. For one, he doesn't usually talk to you.

He also fixes things, like the ever-popular TV in the corner of the boys' room.

And he autonomously takes care of the toddlers! Come on!
. . . Although she does have a point about his arms.

I felt that Luca was perfect for the job, given that he is the nicest of the kids AND his athletic skill level is really high.
I may have underestimated his intensity.

I sent the girls out of the house together, figuring that since they're going to continue to share a room together, they may as well try to bond while doing a fun activity. An activity where Glory could potentially drown by Daisy's hands probably wasn't the best idea, I suppose.

DAISY: Yeah! In your face! I'm awesome!
No, no, you're not.

GLORY: I knew I shouldn't have agreed to a contest with her. She's just being a bitch and gloating now!
That's not a surprise.
DAISY: What's that bitch's problem?
Um, YOU.

No, I think Daisy is much better doing activities on her own. Star-searching seems pretty harmless.

On a side note, when faced with the unreliability of the portrait painting in this game, I decided to instead cheat and get them a camera. Oh, and skill Liam up with Twallan's Master Controller. Aria has maxed painting skill and the portraits are still ~unique at best; I'm going to pretend all that time was spend skilling up Liam's photography instead. I see no problem with this. But yes, this is a test shot of Luca and Glory. Neither look entirely impressed with the impromptu photo shoot. I'm over it.

Other than the original triplets, the rest of the house is actually quite functional and normal. Proof:

Mother and son making dinner, hamburgers and macaroni. A good family dinner when you have toddlers, right? Normal!

Liam working towards his LTW. Normal!

Logan staying out of everyone's drama and upping his logic skill for HIS LTW (top of the medical career)? Normal!
LOGAN: If there's another life form up there, think they would adopt me?
. . . Not normal. Understandable, perhaps, but not normal.

What is this? Are you three trying to APPEAR normal? I'm not buying it.

Ooh, Jude, you're flirting with danger here. Working out in Daisy's vicinity? That's just asking for insults.
DAISY: We're normal now, if you haven't noticed.
Still not buying it. Jude's expression looks far too carefully guarded for this to be true. Also, he, unlike Glory and Luca, hasn't already put the kibosh to one of your evil plots, AND you could probably beat him up, thus bullying him into said plot. There's clearly something else going on here.
DAISY: Just some normal siblings, normally working out!
Okay, I have more important things to worry about than your newest evil plan. Like toddler birthdays!

Despite a terrifying moment when she aged up, Noro is very cute! She's facially very similar to Jude as a child, actually, though with downturned lips, which I think come from Liam. Altogether, this is apparently generalized as being lucky, according to her new trait.

Tautou adds hot-headed to her absent-minded and easily-impressed traits. That sounds like a hot mess, tbh. She is a red-haired Glory clone, however. There are worse fates, really.

Oh, FANTASTIC. Archer inherited Liam's absent-minded trait like three of her siblings. I take back what I said about Tautou, Archer is obviously the hot mess here. To make this even more evident, she is a blue-eyed Daisy clone. A Daisy clone with those personality traits. Both things separate are enough to strike terror in my mind, so she should be, um, fun.

First thing Noro does is pass out on her bedroom floor. You can see two out of the three beds from where she's passed out. Really, Noro?

ARCHER: There are no words.
Mte, Archer.

Hmm, dirty countertops, a total clusterfuck, and Logan impaling Jude on a pan? Sounds about right.

TAUTOU: My life is haaaaarrrrd. I don't want to do hooooommmmmeeeeework.
One of your brothers just impaled the other one on a PAN behind you. You can kindly shut it.

Don't worry, if anyone thought the last set of triplets' dysfunction was a fluke after the relatively well-adjusted Luca and Logan, Noro and Tautou have already proven: IT WAS NO FLUKE.

ARCHER: I'm running away from home. As far as my bike will take me.
So, to the edges of Sunset Valley then? Good for you, dear.

NORO: Well I'M running away to a R-rated movie.
All that's playing and probably ever will be playing at the theater is Star Trek and Harry Potter. I'm not too concerned.
NORO: Oh yeah? Well, it's almost my curfew. Take that!
I don't even care at this point. Go wild.

Tautou is safely at home, hiding in the niche of her bedroom, playing with dolls. Did you finish your homework? Yes? Then go nuts.

Glory is being a suck-up bonding with her father.
GLORY: Your cooking, Dad, it's just so, so wonderful! I mean it, right from the heart.
LIAM: It's just peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Glory.
GLORY: But it's perfect! Like you as a father!
Whoa now, let's not carried away here.

Tautou, already having to deal with being a clone of Glory, decides to attempt to outdo her in the suck-up department. Aria, having over thirty friends outside of her family and being a politician to boot, should be unfazed by this. Yet she melts into a pile of mush when her daughter hugs her.
ARIA: It must be the pregnancy hormones!
No, you're just really that nice, Aria.

And yes, PREGNANCY hormones. Let me explain. After I got oopsed! by a second set of triplets, Aria rolled the want to have ten children. At first I was like "Hahahahahahahano," and the she rolled a want to have a baby. And then a want to have a child with Liam. NOT SUBTLE. Altogether, that'd be about 15000 lifetime happiness points. Which still wasn't enough to convince me. Nor was Liam rolling the want to have a baby. However, a friend of mine wisely pointed out that I already had eight kids, five of them being teens, so how bad could another two be? I'm sure this couldn't backfire on me.

But anyway, focusing on the matter at hand, Tautou = suck-up.

JUDE: So, um, you can turn the computer on to write one of your novels. That's pretty, um, competent of you.
Sucking up. You're doing it wrong.

DAISY: Painting is the single most idiotic thing in the world. Anyone who likes to paint is obviously messed up in the head.
ARIA: . . . I love to paint.
Sucking up. You're doing it REALLY wrong.

Um, what?! Well, that's new.

Liam, nooooooo!
. . . Actually, okay, your hotness was already waning with your moronic faces. Case in point. Senility hit you early, didn't it?

Meanwhile, upstairs . . .
LOGAN: Um, help?


NEXT TIME, the full extent of my insanity is very clearly realized.

Oh, I know, isn't Jude just a cutie? *squishes*

And ten sims wasn't so bad. It was a bit annoying with triplet toddlers, but I had an okay handle on that, so it could've been worse. More then ten sims is a bit more problematic, I have since found out, but whatever, it could be worse! Heh.

Oh, thank you for your kind comment! I will admit to a bit of a bias of my own for Glory, I love her. And I can promise you that you will eventually be able to have those genetics for your own, if you so choose, just when she hits Young Adult - a bit longer! Heh.

Yes, ten kids. *sigh* I honestly wasn't going to do it, was convinced otherwise, and by the time I had second thoughts, well, too late! Oh well.

Thanks for commenting, I appreciate it!

Oh, I know! But next time I decide that ten kids is an okay idea, someone should remind me that there is such a thing as breeding challenges, where actually raising the children isn't required. Oh, the things I'll do for cute kids, haha.

I completely agree in that Glory is a lucky, lucky girl, genetically. And with these kind of genes, well, yes, I suppose I did decide to torture myself with more (hopefully!) genetically-blessed children. It can be hard to stop, can't it? Oh well, I suppose there's no one to blame but myself, heh.

Thanks for the comment!

Oh man, I'm not kidding when I said that a friend of mine talked me into it - I was totally against the 10 kids idea. Oh well! And while I love having an overstuffed house, it is a dangerous thing. Because you end up with 10+ children, and then you hate your life for a while because it's nonstop toddler-rearing. Such is life.

Glory <3 I'll admit it, she is easily one of my personal favorites. <333

10 kids! :O Not even the greatest legacies of legacies has tried that! (Or so I've heard of)

I'm not sure if anyone else has been crazy enough to attempt it, really. Heh. I guess it'd be an easier want to achieve in TS2, where you can send the older kids out of the house without them aging up/story progression having its way with them. But where's the fun in that? ;)

Oh, tell me about it! Glory is definitely one of my favorites, and Noro's right up there too - those blondes just have a way with my heart. ♥

It's a bit crazy, isn't it?

I think Jude is my favorite.
It's his hair.
He is just ADORABLE.
They all are, though.
My sim got that want to have 10 kids too.
I wanted to attempt it, and then my computer crashed, lost all the work...

Heh, his hair is pretty astounding, isn't it? ;D But no, I get what you mean, he's a total cutie so I fully support this favoritism.

Ugh, that sucks. I hate when that happens. *shakes fist* But, hey, on the bright side, at least you don't have ten kids driving you crazy at the moment, right?

Oh, and I forgot to mention it before, but YOUR ICON IS SOOOOO GORGEOUS. ♥

Yeah, I seriously love his hair. And baby Glory's, too. Did you download them or something like that? Because I've never seen hair that fierce, tbh.

That's true. It just gives me motivation to start a new legacy which I totally did. Oops.

Thanks! :D GoT FTWWWWW! ♥

I did download them! Jude's is unisex hair 000065 by Peggy, which can be found for free at the booty, though the download for child/toddler would be a different number. Glory's is also a Peggy hair that can be found at the booty, though I'm not sure of the number. I can always track it down if need be, just let me know! XD

Haha, I can't judge you for that! I looovvvve starting new legacies - and reading them! Let me know if you post it, yeah?

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A FIERCE HOUSEHOLD TBH. No seriously, that is amazing and I want to see them. :D
Brandi Belle: Sansa Starklizbeth_mairead on June 11th, 2011 01:36 am (UTC)
Oh I will be tracking these hair styles down most definitely. Holy crap.

I WILL BE POSTING SOON. I'm working on one actual legacy, and the other IS a legacy it's just full of cheats.

DUDE, DROGO TURNED OUT SO FIERCE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT. Him and his long hair and perfect body. Poor Jorah definitely isn't as macho-looking, but I adore him anyway :D

Fair warning, once you start looking at and downloading hairstyles, it's sooooo hard to stop. But I think that's a good thing! ;D ageiha does some amazing retextures; she's probably my favourite. But if you see any you like that I'm using, let me know and I'll see if I can't find them for you or, at the very least, narrow down the search. :D

YAY I AM EXCITE! lol, don't worry about the cheats - my game was being a screwball and I would not have survived without dragging their motives up via testingcheatsenabled, true story. So no judgment here!

UGH I NEED TO SEE THIS FIERCENESS AND PERFECTION. He sounds amazing, ngl. Haha, does Jorah have the super-macho blouse he was rocking last episode? Because that thing was pretty much the epitome of not looking macho, lol. So, naturally, I loved it.
Brandi Bellelizbeth_mairead on June 12th, 2011 05:11 am (UTC)
jaerjafahebralfk;UNF that shirt. I am ALL ABOUT JORAH OVER HERE. Yeah, during our Live Chat of that episode, we commented like, maybe 54 times JUST REVOLVING AROUND HIM. It was ridiculous, but... yeah, he's a total babe. That entire scene, my mouth was just hanging open. Dany's fierce defiance about stopping rape was completely lost on me because I was just undressing Iain with my eyes the whole time :3

I just got Generations today, so I'm pretty excited about that. Oh, gosh. I went through the booty like, twice already. It's shameful, but Sims is like a virtual dollhouse. And growing up, I loved my dolls. Like that little girl from Remember the Titans. "I'm not PLAYING, I'm accessorizing." LOL

Speaking of Teh Beast Drogo and Stud Muffin Jorah, who do you ship Dany with?
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on June 12th, 2011 09:06 pm (UTC)
I adored Jorah in the books, and seeing him on the tv screen, that adoration has turned into pure, unadulterated UNF-ing. That blouse deserved its 54 comments, it worked hard for that sort of attention! And I'm totally with you about where my attention was focused during that scene; I was like, "Yeah, yeah, Dany's a badass, direct the camera back to Jorah now, kthxbai."

Actually, that whole episode was bad for me in that way - every time Robb was on screen, my mind would go "UNF HOLY SHIT UNNNNNNFFFFF oh wait, should pay attention to the scene . . . UNF." It was pretty pathetic.

Haha, I totally understand that! When I was cleaning up my CC, I spent literally days just going through different sites to download. It makes it so much prettier, mmm. Oh, and have fun with Generations, I think it's pretty fantastic! XD

Hmm, as much as Jorah is far and away my favourite of the two, I couldn't help but to squee over Dany and Drogo's relationship. idk, I guess I liked Jorah in the mentor/father figure sort of role. However, I am totally open to changing my mind based on how much skin they let Iain show in any related scenes. ;) How about you?
Brandi Bellelizbeth_mairead on June 12th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
I have high hopes for his hopefully lack of wardrobe tonight. Srsly.

ROBB IS SUCH A CUTIE. I want to just throw my arms around him every time I see him. Jon's the one I'd personally like to ravish, but I'm not shying away from oogling Robb, either.

Okay, I'm going to confess- I wasn't a fan of Khal Drogo in the books. I suppose I couldn't see past the "buying my wife like a slave" thing, but I just wasn't a fan of him in the books.

...but I suppose it was two episodes ago. There was so much Drogo/Dany cuteness, and the actor who plays Drogo just MELTED MY HEART MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN ♥ I ADORED their little scenes. It was so sweet, and cute, and fluffy. I mean, obviously. That's what the Dothraki are all about. Clearly.

So, I did find a new love for Drogo, but given that, I still ship Jorah/Dany so hard. I just...mmm, love them. ;3
set phasers to "LOVE ME"kittenmittons on June 19th, 2011 12:27 am (UTC)
I never hope about that sort of thing because then I can't be disappointed. Okay, the Hodor peen was disappointing - actually, I'm not sure "disappointed" quite covers my emotions at that. >_<

See, I'm the opposite: I'd like to throw my arms around Jon and hug away all his emo, whereas Robb, well, I don't think a hug would cover it. A naked hug would be a good start though.

I wasn't so bothered by him buying his wife, as you said, because many medieval marriages were political, which we saw even with Ned and Cat's marriage. Sure, Drogo's more barbaric in this, but that didn't bother me in context. I'm not, nor have I ever been, a huge Drogo fan, but then, I don't feel like I really know him well enough to be anything other than meh on him.

I think part of the reason I prefer Drogo with Dany is because Dany prefers herself with Drogo. I don't tend to ship characters a whole lot, so if Dany loves him, then that's enough for me! Plus, the whole "sun-and-stars" and "moon-of-my-life" is pretty adorable, ngl. Not as adorable as that comic, of course, but you know!

I find it much easier to ship show!Jorah with Dany as opposed to the big and hairy book!Jorah, heh. I adored Jorah in the books though, so I could be easily swayed!
Brandi Belle: Amandalizbeth_mairead on June 19th, 2011 02:02 am (UTC)
LOL Hodor. Poor Bran. It's amazing he has any memory left of anything Luwin taught him after getting his head bashed into a door every time he turns around.

THAT WORKS OUT PERFECTLY. You can have Rob, and I'll take Jon. It evens out. I subscribe to the R+L=J theory for the most part, so for some reason that makes him more attractive to me. Because I love Rhaegar, against my better judgment.

I can understand why Dany loved Drogo. But eh, I still don't like it. I mean, they are VERY cute and adorable. But I guess I've always pictured her with someone more... kingly? Regal? (Which I will grant that Jorah doesn't fill that quota. Sorry Stud Muffin. You're still a total babe, though.) Alas, it's in me to hope for lost causes. Chalk it up to my social dysfunction. The good thing is that even if it doesn't happen the way I hope, GRRM writes in a way that sways me to his side. Somehow. Sneaky bastard.

Whether or not he ends up with Dany, I hope Jorah does find someone. Because... :( poor baby. I just feel so SAD for him.

Have you seen the Hodor Twitter? omg, it kills me! I kinda want a Hodor POV chapter, ngl.

Yay, we don't have to have a fan-girl death match! XD

I also subscribe to that theory. It just seems to make a lot of sense, though after being so convinced of it, it'll be quite anticlimactic if that is revealed, lol. I don't see anything wrong with loving Rhaegar - I think he sounds like a very interesting character, though we haven't had a chance to get to know him well enough for me to declare my love. But I think he's pretty tantalizing so far, that's for certain.

I don't know, I think Drogo played SUCH a huge role in Dany's development to this, well, this queen and so I just find it hard to picture her with someone kingly like Robb, for example. I kind of like her with someone more wild, I guess, probably because she is somewhat wild herself at this point.

And omg, I feel so dirty rereading the books and being like "UNF JORAH SCENE" when he's not supposed to look like Iain Glen at all, but all fat and hairy and just . . . :( Oh well, UNF INDEED.

I hope Jorah finds somebody too; his story has been pretty tragic so far. Which: par for the course in these books, really. Right now I'm focusing my hope on Jorah showing up again somewhere. I miss him!
