4.2: There and Back Again

Screenshot

Jamie Clone: Greetings, readers! I welcome you to a new chapter of the Kanto legacy! In the last chapter, my fellow maid and her wife were adorable, the witch woman flirted with her father-in-law, a new baby, Charmander, was born into the legacy, and baby Tepig grew into a toddler.

Care to tell me how you know all this?

Jamie Clone: I’m the eyes and ears of this place, honey. I know all….

Right…I planned to have this chapter posted this morning, but my family decided that going out for breakfast is more important. But that doesn’t mean I can’t post it now! With that being said, let’s hop right into the action, shall we?

Screenshot-2

Well this is awkward…Shelly and Klink were flirting like always, and Squirtle just decided to jump right into the middle of it and start a friendly conversation.

Squirtle: Greetings, family! How are we on this fine day?

Rink: Hehe…great…just great…

Altaria: I’ll call you back, Kyo-kun. Things just got juicy…

Screenshot-3

Luckily, the awkwardness stopped when Squirtle’s sparkling green stomach started to burst.

Squirtle: Oh sweet plumbob, the PAIN!!!

Relax, you’re just giving birth to an alien child conceived the night you were abducted.

Squirtle: Really? Is that all?

Of course, we’re raising this baby.

Screenshot-4

Squirtle gave birth to Deoxys, the first girl of the generation. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a contender for heiress!

Deoxys

Deo was born an evil light sleeper. At least she has one type of trait we’d like to promote.

Screenshot-5

Squirtle: What is this?

Oh, just something your wife cooked up.

Squirtle: Seems rather fishy…are you sure it’s safe for me to eat this?

Well, considering there isn’t a ghost type called “death by poison apple,” I think you’ll be okay.

Squirtle: Well…if you’re sure…

Screenshot-6

Squirtle: Omnomnomnom!

Screenshot-7

Ah, it just puts him to sleep. I’ve been curious what those did for a long time, I’ve just been too afraid to test them. I would’ve felt soooo bad if it had actually killed him…I ❤ you, Squirtle!

Screenshot-8

Altaria: This baby is so boring…

Charmander: I’m a witch! I have magical powers! I am literally levitating in your arms right now!!!

Altaria: Yeah, but look at what MY baby can do.

Screenshot-9

Tepig: Let’s see now…I have a square block. The block is also blue, and I see a hint of blue peeping up from that circular hole, so obviously that’s where this block goes! Genius!

Altaria: Mamma’s so proud of you, baby!

Screenshot-10

Rink: ~obnoxious giggling~

Joe: Oh, don’t mind me, your HUSBAND. I was just checking on our GRANDBABIES.

Klink: What husband? I don’t have a husband…oh wait….Hi Joey!

Joe: I want a divorce 😀

Screenshot-11

Squirtle: Shelly SUCKS!

I completely forgot we even had that thing! I bought it for Bronzong back when he was going through his rebellious elder stage. Must have been hanging about in someone’s inventory this whole time. Please don’t die! You’re the only sane person left in this family! (Wow, this is looking suspiciously like get Squirtle killed chapter, isn’t it?)

Screenshot-12

This child always looks like he’s deep in thought.

Tepig: How can Sims be real if your eyes aren’t real?

Such deepness. Much profound. Wow.

Screenshot-13

GAH! SQUIRTLE! I thought I told you not to die!!!!

Screenshot-14

Rachelle: How do you expect me to mourn the loss of my husband with you standing right on top of me, darlin’?

Jamie: I was here first, bitch. Go pretend to be sad somewhere else.

Screenshot-15

Grim: So I heard someone was ranting about death. 

Yeah, that would be my heir…

Grim: That green idiot over there? 

Screenshot-18

Squirtle: Woah, guys, I’m made of ectoplasm! This is so cool!

That would be the one…

Screenshot-16

Azurill: No, big brother! You can’t leave me! Besides daddy Joe, you’re my only friend in this whole house!

Screenshot-17

Rink: NOOOO, SQUIRTLE!!!!

Jamie: Those idiots don’t deserve to mourn…

Screenshot-19

Grim: Squirtle Kanto, what were you THINKING ranting about death? I’d like to think I’m a pretty chill guy, but hearing people talk smack on me just grinds my gears! 

Squirtle: But Mr. Reaper, sir, I wasn’t ranting about death. I was ranting about my stupid wife who keeps flirting with…

Grim: NO EXCUSES! 

Screenshot-20

Grim: You are a disgrace to your family, Squirtle Kanto. I’m embarrassed that I even have to be here right now. 

Squirtle: Dude, c’mon. This legacy would die without me, you know that!

Screenshot-21

Squirtle: Please, Grim, I throw myself at your mercy!

Grim: Oh, just get up already. I forgive you. This time. 

Squirtle: You…you do?

Screenshot-22

Grim: There, you can have your life back. Nobody can say I’m a heartless stick in the mud now, can they? I have plenty of compassion for life. 

Squirtle: I can’t believe it! Thank you so much! You have no idea what this means to me!

Grim: Yeah, yeah…enough with the theatrics. Don’t let it happen again though, got it? 

Screenshot-23

Squirtle: This experience has been so eye opening for me…it’s like I was there in the afterlife…and now I’m back…

Hehe...oops

Well. That was certainly unexpected. On the bright side, I get to keep my heir for a while longer. He still has stuff to do. Books to write, children to raise, you know the drill. Gosh, this whole ordeal scared the crap out of me. I’m just glad it’s over now.

Screenshot-24

Grim: GAH! Why has that Klink Kanto not died yet?!? I need something to REAP, dammit! 

Relax, Grim. He’s only two days past the end of his life bar. Besides, Joey’s older than him.

Grim: Joe hasn’t completed his lifetime wish, right? I’d like to give him a little more time. This is the new, compassionate Grim, remember? 

Oh, of course.

Screenshot-25

Squirtle: So Grim, what are your plans after this job?

Grim: I’d like to see a little of the world, get a little culture in my life. 

Squirtle: That sounds awesome. I sure wish the Simmer had WA so I could travel too…

Grim: Tell you what. Once your time comes, I’ll take you on one of my reaping world tours. It’ll be a blast. Like one of those buddy roadtrip movies. You in? 

Squirtle: A field trip with the Grim Reaper? You bet I’m in!

Screenshot-26

Rachelle: Oh, sugar plum, I was so scared! I’m happy you’re safe in my arms once again…

Squirtle: Does this mean you’ll stop flirting with my father?

Rachelle: Anything you want, hun.

Derik

Apparently I no longer get popups about unexpected pregnancies, but I do still get popups about the births. Phio stole Azelf’s man and had baby Derik with him. Shortly after this, they broke up and Phio got married to another one of Aza’s ex’s. Sisterly rivalry?

Finally Some Kyovan

An entire school week after booting him out of the house, I finally got some news about Kyovan. Despite being the one to propose, Jovan ended up taking the Kanto name, which I’m perfectly fine with. I believe they’re expecting a baby.

Screenshot-30

Speaking of babies, Charmie grew up! He has a lot of Shelly in him, but he also has his father’s nose. Weird as it may sound, I really like Squirtle’s nose, so I’m excited to see how this one grows up!

Screenshot-27

Rachelle: Sugar, I could just eat you up.

Klink: Hehe…same to you, my dear.

Squirtle: Oh yes, flirt right in front of me. No really, it’s fine. PERFECTLY FINE. I’m just so happy about it. SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY I COULD EXPLODE.

Rachelle: Do be quiet, doll, we’re trying to flirt over here.

Screenshot-31

…..this isn’t happening. We are not going through this again….

Screenshot-32

Klink: MY SON!!!!

Screenshot-33

Rachelle: MY HUSBAND!!!!

Oh, do shut up you two. I don’t wanna hear it from you.

Screenshot-34

Grim: This again? ~sigh~ These Sims just never learn…

Screenshot-35

The toddlers remain blissfully unaware of what’s happening just a few rooms away from them.

Charmander: If this stupid block won’t fit, I’ll just make it fit with my witchy powers!

Screenshot-36

Tepig: My blocks are taken…this is the worst possible thing that could happen today!

Screenshot-37

Grim: Squirtle Kanto, what the hell are you doing? Didn’t I warn you what would happen if you ranted about death again? 

Squirtle: I heard you loud and clear. I just couldn’t take living in a world where the love of my life constantly betrayed me by wooing my father. It was all just too painful for me, you know?

Grim: I understand. 

Screenshot-38

Squirtle: I’m ready to see the world with you, Grim.

Grim: Excited to have you, Squirts. 

Squirtle: Can I just ask one thing of you? Make sure my kids are taken care of. I trust my sister to do a good job, just…promise me they’ll be alright…

Grim: Can do, buddy. 

And off they went to reap the souls of the world together…

Screenshot-39

Rachelle: YOU KILLED MY HUSBAND!!! Who’s the bitch now, huh?

I did no such thing!!! Although I do feel responsible…I should’ve taken the damn megaphone away from him, but I didn’t think he’d be stupid enough to use it again after nearly dying the first time….

Screenshot-40

Squirtle Kanto committed suicide via ranting after one too many times feeling betrayed by his love. He was a great Sim, and despite being a lazy bum, managed to complete his LTW while still a YA, a record for this legacy! He will be dearly missed, and I honestly don’t know how this family is going to survive without him…

Screenshot-41

Jamie: Can I travel the world with you when I die too?

Grim: Little lady, Squirtle and me have an understanding, you know? We have this special connection. You wouldn’t understand it. 

Jamie: D:

Screenshot-43

I think we need some cute to balance out the sad. It seems that Tepig has found a replacement for the blocks Charmie stole from him.

Tepig: This glitchy custom content is twice as fun as that boring pile of poo!

Screenshot-44

Rachelle: Hey there, hot stuff. Now that I’m newly single, how about you and I go see a movie tonight?

Screenshot-45

Klink: You’re despicable. My son, your husband, just died because of us.

Screenshot-46

Klink: Oh, but you’re just too darned adorable that I can’t resist you!

I hate them. Truly.

Screenshot-47

Rachelle: Yo, kid. I have these two tickets to a movie I was gonna take your grandpa to tonight, but he turned me down. You wanna go with mommy?

Screenshot-48

Charmander: Mmmm…no. Auntie Ri says you’re a man eating whorebag.

Rachelle: Where did you learn that language, young man?!?

Screenshot-49

It seems that someone’s training is going far better.

Jamie: I’m gonna let go now, and then you’re gonna walk to me. Alright, Tepig?

Tepig: Not sure about this…I think I’d rather just play with my blocks…mommy Tari says I’m good at that…

Screenshot-50

Tari comes home to find her house in complete chaos. She missed both deaths. The first time, she was fast asleep and couldn’t hear the commotion. This time, she was at work. She took the news pretty hard.

Screenshot-51

Altaria: I loved big brother so much, and now he’s gone!!!

I know, sweetie. I know. She went from being a co-heir to being head of the legacy in one day, plus she lost her best friend.

Screenshot-57

Jamie cheered her up in the only way she knows how.

Screenshot-55

Azurill: I’m so ashamed of you, father. I can’t even look you in the eyes anymore…

Klink: Admittedly, I’m rather ashamed of myself…

I feel sorta bad for him here…he looks so sullen…

Screenshot-59

Amid all the sadness, we do have one glimmer of hope. The toddlers. Deoxys has joined her brother and cousin and become a crawling cutie.

Deoxys: I feel as though my evilness has brought all this suffering. I am now traumatized for life.

Oooorrrr, the cute can just bring more depression….I’m sorry this has been such a downer chapter, you guys. I was so sad while playing it, and writing the previous chapters with Rachelle and Klink flirting like crazy just made me even angrier, knowing what was going to happen. I’m gonna go ahead and sign off for tonight. Thank you all so much for reading, and as always, happy Simming!

Previous Chapter

Next Chapter

4.1: Baby Weight

Hey guys, I’m back with the start of generation four! After the seemingly never-ending Cerulean gen, I’m ready a new color around the house! In the last chapter, Tarmie had the first baby of the generation, Tepig. Meanwhile, Rachelle flirted with Klink more than she did with her own husband. Quite the spouse I picked for him, huh? Also of note, all the Cerulean kids have now been added to the Meet the Kantos page, with their download links in their picture, as always. Squirtle and Tari can be found in the Heirs and Spouses page, and Squirtle will have an alternate download link without his piercings soon. If, for whatever reason, you want the other Cerulean kids, they can be found under the Spares and Spouses tab. I hope this new format works for everyone and is easier to navigate than my previous thousands of tabs branching off of each other. With all that being said, let’s begin the chapter, shall we?

Screenshot-69

Squirtle: ~sigh~ I simply love my little snuggly witch. I am so glad you made me dump my totally hot, perfect college girlfriend for her 😀

Oh, do shut up, you dork. I swear, he’s a closet hopeless romantic or something.

Screenshot-70

Screenshot-71

These two ADORE each other. All they ever do, all day, is embrace, kiss, woohoo, repeat. Jamie is flirty like Rachelle, but somehow, I don’t think she’ll be autonomously flirting with anyone else. Just a guess.

Screenshot-72

Klink is put to work painting legacy portraits so Rachelle can’t get her dirty paws into him, at least for a while. His portraits really are a thousand times better than Bronzong’s were. I’m curious how Tari’s portraits will turn out…

Screenshot-73

Everybody loves the nooboo. Jamie especially likes to make hourly visits to the crib for snuggle times. Tari hardly ever ventures into the nursery, and she’s the nurturing Sim!

Screenshot-74

Rachelle: I am just the bee’s knees, aren’t I hun? I mean, nobody else around here knows magic for one thing. And I’m clearly the most attractive woman in the house. No wonder all them Kanto boys keep turning their heads when I walk in.

Jamie: YAWN. Gosh Rachelle, you’re such a bore.

Nobody likes Rachelle. I think everybody except Klink and Squirtle are in the red with her. Cause she’s such a bitch.

Screenshot-75

Klink makes quick work of his daughter’s portrait and gets started on Jamie’s. He’s going to wait on Rachelle’s until she has her baby, so she can pose in her normal outfit. Also, GO AWAY THOUGHT BUBBLE STOP RUINING MY SHOTS.

Screenshot-76

Jamie: What are you doing?…

Rachelle: Just hold still, sugar. I need to cast this little ol’ spell on you. It’ll all be over quickly, I promise.

Jamie: I don’t like this….

Shelly’s been rolling all sorts of wishes to cast good luck charms on people. Jamie’s her first victim target. Surprisingly, it worked.

Screenshot-77

One half of Cerulean gen done. These two actually took over Bronzong and Gala’s old bedroom, which is why there’s still graffiti on the walls, in case any of you were wondering.

Screenshot-78

Don’t you have something better to do? Something more productive? In your bedroom?

Squirtle: Oh, right!

Screenshot-79

NOT what I MEANT.

Klink: Think you can steal my thunder, eh son?

Squirtle: She’s MY wife, dad!

Screenshot-80

Let’s pan over to a nice couple for a change.

Jamie: Sorry you didn’t quite get that promotion you wanted, baby. Here, let me give you a massage to help you wind down.

Altaria: Mmmmm…massaaage….

Screenshot-81

Klink: I hope you think of me while you woohoo with my son, beautiful.

Rachelle: Will do, sugar.

Please don’t…

Screenshot-82

Squirtle: I’m waiting, darling!

Rachelle: Comin’, hot stuff!

Screenshot-83

~sigh~

Screenshot-84

For all his faults in his elder years, at least I can say that Klink is a good grandpa.

Klink: You are going to be a very handsome young man, little Tepig. Yes you are. Yes you are!

He and Joe both have the wish to have five grandchildren. The spare Kantos had better spawn, because Squirtle’s children won’t count as Joe’s grandkids. Which is stupid.

Screenshot-85

Like I said. Hug, kiss, woohoo, repeat. There could be some babymaking here that I’m not aware of, since I still don’t have my sound on. I guess we’ll find out.

Screenshot-86

Ri’s doing pretty well at the chemistry table. She already has a really high logic skill from playing chess with Joe all the time, so learning all the potions should be a breeze for her.

Screenshot-87

Rachelle: I hereby cast a charm of good luck on you, husband of mine!

Squirtle: This seems WAAAY too sketchy…

Screenshot-88

If someone with this expression was casting a spell on me, I’d be scared too.

Screenshot-89

Let me take a moment to show you the newly aged up Kurtis Van Gold. If you remember, he’s the spawn of Herbson when they were still in high school. He’s a vampiric ghost, and he’s totally the next spouse. I’m hoping for a female heir this time around, so here’s hoping he’s straight!

Screenshot-90

Squirtle: Hi there, little Tepig. I’m your uncle Squirtle. Aren’t you just the cutest darned baby in the whole world?

Along with hopeless romantic, I think Squirtle’s a secret family oriented Sim. He LOVES children. He was an amazing father to the previous batch of Vermilion kids, and I’m super excited for the real deal. With Shelly being Shelly and Tarmie being busy with their jobs, he might be the only parent the kiddos get to see a lot.

Screenshot-91

Did I say she was good at potion making?

Screenshot-97

Instead of cleaning herself up like any normal Sim, she has to check and make sure the sink isn’t going to overflow.

Azurill: We don’t need two disasters on our hands, do we?

Screenshot-92

Tarmie: Don’t mind us, we’re just hogging all the screentime with our cuteness.

Guh, these two! Once Tepig ages up, we’ll have something else to fawn over, but for now, these two are the most interesting thing this house has going, aside from flirty pants and her two men.

Screenshot-93

Rachelle: OOOOFFFF!!! I think I just went into labor!!! Call an ambulance for me, hun!!!

Klink: Naw, I think I’ll just stand here and….

Screenshot-94

Klink: FREAK OUT!!! Oh no, what do we do? It’s not like I’ve gone through this several times myself or anything!

Screenshot-95

Squirtle: I am going to be supportive from over on this couch. Births make me nauseous. ~yells~ You’re doing great, honey! Just keep breathing!

Screenshot-96

And another baby boy was born! This is Charmander Kanto.

Charmander

Charmie was born a brave couch potato. Both of his traits were rolled. Also, we now have all of the gen one starters represented in this legacy! Of course, Ivysaur is an evolution of Bulbasaur, not the first form like Charmie and Squirtle, but still.

Screenshot-98

Squirtle: See, I told you births mess with me! Or maybe I’m just having a bad reaction to that spell Shelly cast on me…

Yeah. Yeah, that’s it…

Screenshot-99

Shelly dumps her newborn into its crib and gets right back to practicing her magic, not giving him a second thought.

Rachelle: In the grand scheme of things, what’s more important? One little nooboo, or my lifetime wish?

Tarmie: Look at us. We’re cute. We will invade all of your pictures till the end of our time. LOOK AT US. 

Screenshot-100

Azurill: When do I get to get married and have babies of my own?

When you turn YA? Which isn’t for quite a while, mind you.

Screenshot-101

I really should stop giving these two all the screen time. It’s exactly what they want and I’m just fueling their fire. But they’re so adorable together and I can’t resist taking pictures!

Screenshot-102

Like I said before, Ri and Joe play chess together all the time. Joey is (I think) level 9 in logic right now. Or maybe he’s still at level 8. Ri is about a 7, I think.

Screenshot-103

Jamie: I don’t wanna hold THIS baby, I wanna hold MY baby…it’s my darling little angel that will become the heir someday.

Neither of these kids will become the heir, because they are boys and I’m sick of male heirs. Just pick him up and change his diaper, please…

Screenshot-104

When not at work (or woohooing with her wife), Tari raises her charisma skill.

Screenshot-110

When she can’t raise her charisma skill anymore, she calls the random people in her address book that she barely knows and spams them with friendly texts until they’re friends. So the cycle goes.

Screenshot-105

Rachelle’s portrait. It’s got kind of a greenish tint to it, but she’s green herself so I suppose it suits her. Plus, she’s not worth trying for a better looking one.

Screenshot-106

Rachelle: That was a wonderful painting you did of me, darlin’. It makes me so happy.

Klink: Heh, no problem, pumpkin.

Screenshot-107

Rachelle: ~blows kiss~

Klink: ~blushes profusely~

Screenshot-109

Jamie: I don’t get this game, Squirtle. What are those things your silly looking character keeps picking up?

Squirtle: Oh, those? Cups of coffee. They’re basically your energy meter. If you run out of energy, it’s game over. Wanna play?

Jamie: …no. No, I’m fine, thank you.

Squirtle: Your loss.

Screenshot-111

Rink: ~are idiots~

Screenshot-112

Squirtle: Those bastards…

Screenshot-114

Rachelle: Please forgive me, honey pie! I didn’t mean it, really I didn’t! Your father’s a real nice man, and we was just making friends, I promise! But you’re the only one I really love…

Screenshot-115

Squirtle: Alright, I understand. Pregnancy hormones, and all that. Just…don’t do it again. Please?

Rachelle: Course not, sugar plum.

Screenshot-116

Squachelle: ~obnoxious kissing noises~

Screenshot-117

Rachelle: You’re puttin’ on a little weight there, pudding. Has my flirting driven you to binge eating? That ain’t healthy, you know.

Squirtle: I’m not sure what’s going on with me, babe. But if it bothers you that much, I’ll work it off for you.

Rachelle: Naw, it’s fine, big boy. I like a man with a little meat on his bones.

Screenshot-118

Squirtle: Hi there, little Charmie. I’m your daddy. I love you more than you could ever know, little guy.

D’awww.

Screenshot-119

Rachelle: Hun, you are absolutely the sweetest man in the world, you know that?

Squirtle: Wow, who knew all I had to do to get her to throw herself at me was be nice to kids?

Speaking of kids…

Screenshot-121

Little Tepig grew into a toddler! He looks just like Jamie. I don’t see much of Tari in him right now, but I suppose we’ll see when he gets older. He’s absolutely adorable, and gives me high hopes for this generation.

Also, this face totally screams “Goo, mother fucker” to me. But a toddler would never say that. Not ever.

Screenshot-122

Jamie: Alright little guy, let’s toss a missile right into the middle of our Simmer’s plan. We’re gonna make all the readers love you most, so that way you can be heir! How does that sound.

Tepig: Sounds dumb. Don’t wanna do it.

Jamie: But whyyyy??? 

Let’s leave Jamie to her complaining and end this chapter, shall we? Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you guys have a wonderful day. Happy Simming!

Next Chapter

3.22: Rachelle the Flirt

Yep, another chapter already! Since it is now spring break, I’m going to try my hardest to get as much written as possible, hopefully a new chapter at least every other day. Hope the Kanto spam in your reader doesn’t get too annoying! Last time, our Cerulean heirs chose their future spouses, moved them in, and knocked them up. Will we meet any babies today? Let’s find out!

Screenshot

I forgot to mention this last time (although her LTW probably gave it away). Rachelle is a witch! Last time we tried bringing supernaturals into this family, we brought in stupid, dumb Abigail. Hopefully this romance goes better than that…

Screenshot-2

Altaria: Big brother, I will always love and respect you, but it’s time I moved on to a more healthy relationship for myself. I’m going to propose to Jamie today. I really hope you’re not too upset by it.

Squirtle: Oh drat. However will I go on.

Screenshot-3

What’s the matter, Jamie? Feeling a bit nauseous?

Screenshot-4

Jamie: BLERRGGG.

Repetitive puke shot is repetitive.

Screenshot-5

Rachelle gets her official initiation into the family. These aliens do love newcomers. Have fun, don’t screw her brain up too badly!

Screenshot-6

Jamie: Baby. I would never have guessed I was pregnant, with all the throwing up I did. I’d best tell Tari.

Screenshot-7

You look happy.

Altaria: Promotion 😀

PROMOTION

Nice. Very nice. I think your girlfriend has even more good news for you.

Screenshot-8

Jamie: So, you know how I was sick earlier today?

Altaria: Yeah, that was kinda gross.

Jamie: Well, turns out that was just morning sickness. Because I’m pregnant.

Screenshot-9

Altaria: Really?! We’re having a baby?!

Jamie: Yupp!

Screenshot-10

Altaria: Nice work, me. Way to fertilize!

Rachelle: Allow me to turn this light off for you, completely ruining your next few shots XD

Screenshot-11

They celebrated in the only way these two know how.

Screenshot-12

Altaria: In lieu of the current situation, there’s something I need to ask you.

Jamie: What is it?

Screenshot-13

Altaria: Oops! Careful Tari, don’t drop it…

Screenshot-14

Altaria: Will you marry me?

Screenshot-15

Jamie: OMG SUCH SHINY. I mean, yes I’ll marry you! A thousand times yes!

Screenshot-16

Jamie: Look at that lens flare! How much did it cost for such a shiny ring?

Altaria: Price doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you’re all mine now.

Screenshot-17

Ahh, bliss.

Screenshot-19

Klink: Is that a pregnancy book you’re reading there, future daughter-in-law?

Jamie: Ummm…yes?

Klink: Good. It’s about time I became a grandparent. And you know…we have other types of books, if you know what I…

Jamie: I’m gonna stop you right there, old man. We don’t want any.

Klink: The offer’s always open.

Screenshot-20

Determined Rachelle is determined.

Rachelle: I will learn toadification magic if it’s the last thing I do!

Problems with co-workers, Shelly dear?

Rachelle: You have NO idea…

I let her quit sometime after this. She didn’t really want to be a firefighter, and now she’ll have more time for practicing her magic.

Screenshot-21

Screenshot-22

Screenshot-23

And Tarmie hereby became official.

Screenshot-24

WHAT WHAT WHAT.

Rachelle: Did you know my favorite color is pewter grey, hot stuff?

Klink: Really? That’s cool. I like purple myself, but…

Rachelle: I don’t think you’re quite catching my meaning, big boy.

Screenshot-25

Thankfully, this was NOT flirty mc-cheater-pants and her newfound boy toy. It was just Tarmie, celebrating their marriage.

Screenshot-26

Rachelle: Oh, I see you’re about to have a nooboo, hun. I sure wish I was pregnant.

Stop feigning innocence, Shelly. It doesn’t become you.

Screenshot-27

To you, this may seem like nothing. But in reality…

Rachelle: I know you want me, sugar plum. I can see it in your eyes.

Klink: It’s…it’s been so long since I was with a woman…it might be nice to relive the glory days…but I’m perfectly happy with my Joey…right?

Rachelle: If you have to ask, doll, then maybe not.

Screenshot-28

Joe: I am NOT seeing this. I am definitely not seeing my husband being seduced by a younger woman. If I cover my eyes, maybe it’ll just go away.

Poor Joey… 😦

Screenshot-29

Rachelle: Oh look, I AM pregnant.

Oh plumbob, what have we done? Should we really let her spawn?

Rachelle: I heard that. And I will be a perfectly capable mother, thank you very much.

Screenshot-30

Aliens: Klink Kanto, we’ve been sent to punish you for your sins.

Klink: My sins?

Aliens: Flirting with your future daughter in law, especially right in front of your husband.

Klink: Oh, that. See, that was nothing. Really, it wasn’t. We were just having a bit of fun, you know?

Aliens: No excuses. You’re coming with us.

Screenshot-31

Tari escapes the drama of her family by reading a pregnancy book. These Sims are still in love with that beanbag chair…

Screenshot-32

Rachelle: You, hun, have no brains what-so-ever, do you know that?

Joe: What the hell are you talking about?

Rachelle: That precious old man you’re married to. He’s obviously unsatisfied. You’re never home, and even when you are, the two of you are never intimate anymore. Which is obviously why he’s come flocking to me instead. Cause I pay attention to him.

Screenshot-33

Joe: You’re crazy. Anyone with half a brain could see that Klinky and I are perfectly happy together. It wasn’t until you came along that things started to get rocky. I don’t think I want you marrying my step-son.

Rachelle: If you’ll excuse me, I need to find a toilet. This baby bump of mine is pressing into my bladder, and it is QUITE uncomfortable.

Joe: That’s right, you just run away! ~grumble, grumble, grumble~

Screenshot-34

Azurill: Take THAT Rachelle. You stupid whore…

What was that for, Ri?

Azurill: She’s making my daddies fight. And obviously I can’t kick the real thing.

Screenshot-35

Rachelle: Hey there, stud. Them aliens hurt you too badly?

Klink: No, not really. I mean, I’ve been through it before. Did my family treat you okay while I was gone?

Screenshot-36

Rachelle: Oh, Klinky darlin’, they were simply deplorable! That husband of yours was particularly cruel to me…it seems that he doesn’t want me joinin’ your family…

Klink: I’ll have a talk with him. Don’t worry about it.

Screenshot-37

At least one couple in this house is happy…

Altaria: ~sigh~ I’m maaaaried…

She’s always getting invited to parties by one of her siblings, but this time, I let her go. She needed to get away from the drama of the legacy house for a while.

Screenshot-38

She went as a sexy pirate chick. I like.

Screenshot-39

The only other person around was Phio, dressed as a zebra.

Phione: Booo to only my sister showing up!

I’ll leave them to it for a while.

Screenshot-40

Joey takes out his frustrations on unsuspecting patients.

Joe: Open wide and say ah.

Woman: Ahhh? AHHHH!!!!

Screenshot-41

Klink: So then I said, “Wonderful weather we’re having, right?”

Rachelle: Oh, Mr. Kanto, you’re so funny!

Azurill: Don’t think I don’t know about you and my daddy, bitch. You can pretend all you like. We ALL know.

Screenshot-42

All but poor, clueless Squirtle. He’s been cooped up in his room this whole time, non the wiser to his girlfriend’s exploits. He’s mastered writing at this point, and now he’s working on that “write fifteen novels” want of his, along with some of the writing challenges.

Screenshot-43

Rachelle: Sugar plum, I’d like to eat you right up.

Screenshot-44

Klink: Wow, so that’s what irresistible interactions do. That’s really funny, actually. But I find myself strangely drawn closer to you, despite that ridiculous facial expression…

Rachelle: Works every time, Poke-man.

Screenshot-45

The party was really hopping, but I decided it was time for Tari to come back home.

Altaria: Welp, nice seeing you again sis. We should totally do this again sometime…see ya.

Screenshot-46

Back home, we have a birthday to celebrate. No cake this time, as per her request.

Azurill: With my luck, it would just explode on me.

Probably.

Screenshot-48

Wow. I think she might even be prettier than Tari.

Azurill: Does that mean I can be heiress instead?

No.

Azurill: Then can I at least get a pet?

No. She rolled animal lover, by the way.

Azurill: Not even a bird?

Moving on.

Screenshot-49

Jamie: You might wanna move your camera that way a bit. Some shit’s about to go down.

Screenshot-51

Klink and Rachelle: ~flirt, flirt, flirt~

Screenshot-52

Squirtle: Shelly and my dad were just flirting…

Screenshot-53

Squirtle: I’m so ANGRY right now, I could just SMASH something!

Are you gonna end things with her?

Squirtle: Nope. Even better.

Screenshot-54

Squirtle: ~pulls Shelly into a hug~

Rachelle: What’s gotten into you, darlin’?

Squirtle: I don’t want you flirting with my father anymore. You’re mine, do you understand that?

Rachelle: Ooo, possessive. I like that in a man.

Squirtle: So you’ll stop cheating on me with my own dad?

Rachelle: We’ll see, sugar.

Screenshot-55

She flirts with your father, and you make out with her?

Squirtle: Better than that.

Screenshot-56

Squirtle: Shelly, I have a very important question for you.

Rachelle: I can see your speech bubble, sugar. My question is, why now? What’s so special about today that makes you wanna ask me that?

Screenshot-57

Squirtle: I want the world to know who you belong to. Plus, I’d like to make honest Sims out of us before the baby arrives. Can you really blame me?

Rachelle: Why, that was just the sweetest darned thing I ever heard.

Screenshot-58

Rachelle: Aww, who am I to say no to such a lovely stone.

Screenshot-59

She cheats on you…and you MARRY her?!?

Squirtle: Shut up, you’ll ruin the moment.

Screenshot-60

Meanwhile…

Jamie: TARI. HOSPITAL.

Altaria: Mmm…nope. Simmer says home birth. Besides, there’s a piece of cake in the kitchen with my name on it.

Jamie: You bitch!

Screenshot-61

Screenshot-62

Screenshot-63

You two disgust me.

Screenshot-64

Squirtle: Really? Right now? But I was just about to go on my honeymoon D:

Screenshot-65

Joe: Helloo? Future of the legacy being born here!

Right, of course.

Screenshot-66

Jamie: It’s a boy!

Yay 😀

Welcome to the world, baby Tepig Kanto.

Tepig

Baby Tepig is good and artistic. Because of course he is.

With the birth of the first member of Vermilion gen, I’ll wrap up this chapter. Thank you guys so much for reading and as always, happy Simming!

Next Chapter

3.21: Bypassing the Plan

Hello everyone! I’m back with a new chapter of the Kanto legacy! Last time, Azurill aged up with a severe case of neurosis, and the middle twins turned YA and moved out.

1

Kyogre: Greetings, boyfriend I haven’t seen in almost a week. Step right inside, please. I have a surprise for you.

Jovan: This seems a little sketchy…

2

Don’t worry, Jovan. It’s just cake.

Jamie: WOOO! Birthdays!!!

Kyogre: Caaakkkeee….

5

Joe Kyo ages up eccentric, to add to good, hates the outdoors, snob, and no sense of humor. He aspires to be a world renowned surgeon, just like his father. He enjoys songwriter music, key lime pie, and the color red. He is a cancer.

Kyogre: I don’t know about this adulthood thing…something just doesn’t feel right…

6

His boyfriend, Jovan Gale, is a charmismatic, party animal who loves sports and mooching stuff off of others. He enjoys country music, grilled salmon, and the color yellow, and his sign is gemini. I apparently forgot to write down his final trait and his LTW.

7

After scarfing down a piece of birthday cake, he immediately took off, not even saying goodbye to his boyfriend.

8

Altaria: Enough about that jerk-off. It’s my turn to shine!

9

Altaria: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to elope with Squirtle in a land apart.

10

Here’s our heiress, all grown up! She rolled nurturing, making her a nurturing, clumsy, hydrophobic, ambitious Sim. She wants to be a CEO. I’m not really sure if that suits her or not, but I believe in her abilities to successfully succeed. She enjoys songwriter music like her twin, spaghetti with veggie sauce, and the color white. She is a leo.

Altaria: And now I’m expected to marry someone who isn’t my love, right?

Well, yes.

Altaria: If I get some cute nooboos out of it, I suppose I’ll deal.

12

After trying and failing at getting Jovan back over so Kyo-kun could propose, I finally gave up, set him up in the medical career, and shipped him out. I hope story progression is kind to these two. For whatever reason, my game hardly ever keeps couples together unless I marry them in the legacy house and then ship them out together…

Well, now I have some explaining to do. This is the point where the plan would have started. In fact, it did start here. But it was disastrous.

Screenshot-22

I sent my heirs to Uni, where I had already picked spouses for them.

Screenshot-28

Screenshot-30

They met their future spouses, fell madly in love, yada yada yada. Everything was going swimmingly, until babies happened. Tari and Eddy had twins, which was fine. But Squirtle and Ashley had quads! And Ashley’s LTW is surrounded by family, meaning we needed MORE kids. Both sets of parents got pregnant again, and luckily, Tari only had one baby. Ashley had quads again. Eleven children! With four adults, two elders, and a teenager still in the house! And then, both sets of parents got pregnant again when I wasn’t looking! Both had twins. Fifteen child generation! It was ludicrous, stressful, glitchy as hell. My game kept crashing, which it hardly ever does anymore. I wasn’t taking good screenshots at all because of being so frustrated. All in all, it was unpleasant, and it wouldn’t have been fun for you guys to read about. So I tossed the idea. Luckily, I had kept my save from right when they arrived back home from Uni, so I picked right up from there. One thing to note, though:

WOOHOO!!!

White at Uni, Squirtle wrote two books and completed his LTW! He is the youngest Kanto yet to accomplish this! Tari was hard at work too, building up her charisma skill to level four. With all that out of the way, let’s see what we can do to bring in the next generation, shall we?

Screenshot

Klink: It’s good to have you kids back in the house! I’m so proud of my baby boy, completing his lifetime wish! And of my little Tari, just starting on hers. Be sure to clock in early on your first day, hon. Make a good impression.

Altaria: Whatever you say, dad.

Azurill: Later, family. There’s a bumblebee ride calling my name.

Screenshot-2

Squirts still has a point to go before he masters the writing skill, and he’s also rolled the wish to write fifteen novels, so he’s still going to be chained to his desk for a little while.

Screenshot-3

Klink painted this beauty the other day. I’ve seen it in other legacies, but this is the first time one of my Sims has produced it. I think I’m gonna save it for when Vermilion gen gets here. It might look good in a red nursery.

Screenshot-4

I have Squirtle try to strike up a conversation with Jamie, in hopes that we can marry this adorableness in.

Squirtle: So…how’s life as a maid?

Jamie: I’m gay.

Squirtle: …..okay?

Screenshot-6

Jamie: Sorry, I didn’t mean to rain on your parade like that. I just knew you were about to flirt with me. I could see it in your eyes.

Squirtle: I’m that readable, huh?

Screenshot-7

Squirtle: …..

Jamie: ……

Squirtle: Awkward….

Screenshot-8

I have Tari step in to ease the awkwardness. If I can’t have her in my legacy, I can at least use her to help Tari’s charisma progression. Also, I have no idea why there is a picture of Unown on the ground. I put it in Tari’s inventory, but it just kept teleporting back to that spot.

Altaria: Now you listen here, maid. If you so much as lay a hand on my Squirtle…

Jamie: I’m gay.

Altaria: ….okay?

Screenshot-9

Altaria: So…what’s it like being a maid?

Klink: Uggghh! My daughter is in the way of the pretty maid!

Jamie: I…think I see something that needs cleaning…

Screenshot-10

Meanwhile, I sent Squirtle all over town looking for people he could make his bride. I found this tattoo artist at the salon, and decided to have Squirlte chat her up, see if he liked her at all.

Squirtle: I can’t believe you’re making me spouse hunt. I HAVE a future spouse. Her name is Ashley and she’s squishy and adorable and perfect and wonderful and….

And cursed with a quads glitch. Besides, inviting Uni Sims over doesn’t always agree with my game. I’m sure you’ll find someone you like just as much as her.

Screenshot-11

Rachelle: So I hear you need babies. Well just so you know, I do have ovaries, and they are fully functional.

Squirtle: …right…

Screenshot-12

Rachelle: If I run off, will he chase me?

Not likely. Although, he did manage to make friends with her, so I’ll probably have him hunt her down again tomorrow. In the meantime, let’s check out Tari’s progress with Jamie the maid.

Screenshot-13

Altaria: I just don’t know what to do, weird maid chick. I need to carry on my father’s legacy, but I just can’t find a guy I like as much as my big brother…even my boyfriend back at Uni isn’t attractive to me…not really…

Jamie: Maybe you’re just gay.

Altaria: Gay? Me?

Jamie: Yeah. Do you ever find other women attractive?

Screenshot-14

Altaria: As a matter of fact, I do think you’re very pretty…

Changing gender preferences up in here

Huh, that’s interesting. The reason I picked Eddy as her spouse originally was because she told me she was straight before prom. But this certainly makes sense for her, since she never liked another guy aside from her big brother.

Screenshot-15

Altaria: Thank you so much. If it weren’t for you, I don’t think I ever would’ve figured myself out.

Jamie: Any time, babe. If there’s anything else I can do for you, just let me know, alright?

Altaria: Actually, there is ONE thing…

Jamie: What is it?

Screenshot-16

Screenshot-17

Jamie: Hey, it’s been real, but I have to get going now. We’ll hang tomorrow, kay?

Altaria: Actually, I was kinda hoping you’d move in with us…it’d mean a lot to me…

Jamie: Really? You mean it? Hell yeah, I’ll move in!

Screenshot-18

Altaria: Hold on a sec, there’s something I have to do…

Jamie: No prob. Wow, I’m really moving up in the world…

Altaria: Eddy, I’m sorry it has to be this way, but as it turns out, I’m gay! So…no hard feelings? I hope we can still be friends!

Screenshot-19

Altaria: I hope I’m doing the right thing…

Jamie: You’re following your heart. That’s always the right thing to do.

Screenshot-21

I gave Jamie her Cerulean makeover (although she’s still wearing that silly maid outfit) and then sent Tari over to pop the question.

Altaria: Will you be my girlfriend?

Jamie: Definitely.

Screenshot-22

She definitely seems happier than she was with Eddy.

Screenshot-23

Time to get on making Vermilion spawn. I’m going to try to avoid maternity leave with Tari, given her career based LTW, and Jamie is already into her adult life bar, so we need to work quickly.

Screenshot-24

Azurill: Big sister’s getting it on with that maid girl, daddy!

Joe: Where did you learn language like that, missy? Don’t talk about Tari’s private business. Besides, I don’t wanna hear about my precious baby girl’s sexual exploits.

Screenshot-25

Jamie wants to be a firefighter super hero (not likely to happen, but we can try), so she promptly gets a job in the firefighter career.

Screenshot-26

Klink: So how was your first time in bed, darling? I’ve had Woohoo with both a man and a woman, so if you ever need any advice…

Altaria: Daddy, please!

Perverts, this family…

Screenshot-27

Little Ri is obsessed with this thing, I’m telling you. Her first action every morning after getting up is to ride on it. It’s kinda ridiculous.

Screenshot-28

Tari, meanwhile, is obsessed with her business planner thingy from Uni. If I leave her autonomous, this is what she chooses to do. Squirtle never touches his…whatever the thing is they get for the communications major. Being at Uni kinda bores me a bit, so I don’t usually pay too much attention to this stuff.

Screenshot-29

First day on the job! I really like the firefighter career, but if I’m gonna spend a lot of time with it, I think I’d prefer it be with an heir instead of a spouse.

Screenshot-30

First order of business: maintain the firetruck.

Screenshot-31

Right across the street from the firehouse is the salon, and Rachelle the tattoo artist is nowhere to be found. Instead, we see Bobo and his elder wife, Winter Marquez. They obviously can’t spawn, but they are very much in love, so it’s okay. He’s the only Cerulean spare so far to be in a steady relationship.

Screenshot-32

Back home, we have a new maid. Who looks suspiciously just like Jamie…is there a maid warehouse where they make carbon copies of one girl, and when one leaves the service, a new one is shipped out?

Screenshot-33

Our first emergency!

Woman: OMG, help! My garage is on fire!

Screenshot-34

This “small house fire” is no match for Jamie Ring, firefighter extraordinaire!

Tari's first promotion

Guess who else is succeeding at her job.

Screenshot-35

Co-worker: I don’t get it. What’s one measly promotion in the grand scheme of things?

Altaria: In a legacy, it’s everything.

Screenshot-36

Back at the station, we finally found Rachelle! Apparently, she switched jobs overnight.

Rachelle: I’m playing hard to get. It usually draws men in like flies to honey. Now if you’ll excuse me, I see that darling legacy boy of yours staring at me through the window.

Screenshot-37

Squirtle: How would you like to help me bring a new color into the Kanto pallet?

Rachelle: Teehee, I’d really like that, Poke-boy.

Screenshot-38

Random Dude: Yo, Shelly, what gives? I thought we were on for tonight?

Rachelle: Shhh, pudding, don’t ruin the moment.

Screenshot-39

Rachelle: What’s the matter, stud, don’t got enough Pokeballs to do the deed? Don’t leave a girl hanging.

Squirtle: Shush, you! You’re not helping!

Screenshot-40

After spending the entire evening wooing her, Squirtle finally gets the courage to make a serious move.

Squirtle: What would you say if I asked you to move in with me?

Rachelle: I’d say that it’s about freaking time, sport!

Screenshot-41

Rachelle: So this is the place, huh? It could use some work, but it’ll do.

Altaria and Jamie: Look at us! We flirt autonomously! We’re cute! Give us all the screentime!

Squirtle: How nice, my sister finally found someone to love 🙂

Screenshot-42

Jamie: MAKE LOVE TO ME.

Altaria: Woah. I mean, okay!

Rachelle: Oh, suger, c’mon over here and show me how much of a man you are. If these lesbians can do it, you can, too.

Squirtle: Ehh, that’s their thing. Plus, I’m not really in the mood right now, you know?

Screenshot-43

Jamie: Your bed, or the shower?

Altaria: Mmm…I’m kinda feeling the shower this time.

Rachelle: I’m a firefighter, you know.

Squirtle: Yeah, that’s cool I guess.

Screenshot-44

Rachelle: We could play a game. You be the damsel in distress, and I’ll be the hunky fireman who saves you from eternal damnation by flame.

Squirtle: Ooh, that sounds exciting!

Rachelle: Woohoo time?

Squirtle: Nope! I gotta write about that shit first!

Jamie: I think I’d like to play that game…

Screenshot-45

Squirtle: Look, Shelly, I have an important question for you.

Rachelle: I can see your speech bubble, darlin’. I know what you’re gonna ask.

Squirtle: Well? What do you say?

Rachelle: If it’ll get you to woohoo with me? Abso-friggen-lutely!

Screenshot-46

Success! Mate procured!

Screenshot-47

Joe: So look hun, if you or the maid girl need any pregnancy books, your father and I have plenty. We also have…other kinds of books, if you know what I mean ;P

Altaria: …seriously, dad. Stop it.

Screenshot-48

Rachelle finally got her wish, and we get Squirtle’s side of Vermilion gen underway! Rachelle is just a little bit younger than Jamie, but she’s also into her adult bar, so we really do need to make babies, stat.

Now that we’ve begun reproducing, how about I formally introduce the heads of Cerulean gen?

Welp, I hope you guys enjoyed this chapter, and I’ll see you next time for the conclusion of generation 3! I hope you guys had a wonderful Pi day on Saturday, and I hope you continue to have a wonderful day today. Happy Simming!

Stuck Aging Glitch

Hey guys, I promise I’ll get a new chapter posted soon! But first, I’m having a little bit of technical difficulties. I know, that’s nothing new with this legacy, huh? Well, this is just a small thing, nothing game breaking, but it’s still rather annoying. I’m pretty far into Vermilion generation at this point (I’ve been spending way too much free time playing, and not nearly enough writing! Apologies!), and two of my Sims were aging into teens via cake. One of them aged up like normal. The other one didn’t age at all. I thought it might have been a glitch with the cake, so I tried to trigger her age transition. She started the birthday animation, but then stopped, and dropped “have birthday” from her que. I tried this a couple more times, reseting her between each try. She stayed a child. I tried using master controller to open up CAS, but it wasn’t an option. Finally, I reset her using master controller, and she went back to normal, aging up on her own. Except, she wasn’t back to normal. All her genetics were gone, replacing her with a face 1. Even her eye color was completely different. I closed out the game without saving, but the same thing happened again. I also don’t have a copy of her saved, since I don’t usually save my Sims to the bin until their YA birthdays. Is there any way to get back her original genetics, or is she just stuck as a pudding face forever? Any advice you guys have, not only on fixing her but also preventing it from happening to other Sims, would be appreciated. Thanks so much, and I hope to be back again soon with the conclusion of Cerulean gen and the start of Vermilion!
