I'm incredibly sorry for the delay D: I've had these pictures ready to go for ages and I really have no excuse other than my flimsy attention span and the distractions of videogames (mmm, Deus Ex: Human Revolution). Well, also a computer upgrade, but that would still be a bad excuse, it only took my computer out of commission for a day or two at most.
So, where were we? Oh right.
Last time on the Magellan Legacy:
- Freya became heir.
- She started a romance/rivalry with maranatah's Jonny Eaves
- Astraeus died :(
- Freya and Jonny got engaged
- And we ended with Hazel's death :(
So without further delay, we get back to where we left off. Hazel's death.
Grim: Really, through a window. How degrading. Thou could atleast let me in.
Hazel: *ignores him*
Meanwhile the attentive and loving daughter is out on a date...
Yes, I'm sure your mother dying in the middle of the date did make it a wonderful evening :|
Classy, Sif, just classy.
Sif: Don't you think it's time you get your own, adult, bedroom? Without a bunkbed? And without being across the hall from me where I can hear everything? >:[
(I did end up moving her to a new build that is unfinished during the next update(s). So I'd like to apologize in advance for future bare walls, lack of ceilings and occasional dark lighting due to no lights. I'm nothing if not kind for letting my sims live in such luxury....)
I didn't know fitness was a concern after death.
Freya: (ugh, dealing with mom's death is making me sick. I feel so miserable ;_; )
Uh, I'm not sure that is related...
Freya: Waaaaaah, she's gooooone ;_; She won't be able to come to my bachelor party either *sniff*
I'm sure that was her biggest concern, yes.
Pizza delivery guy: Awkward deliveries! At your service! If the pizza is not all shoved to the side of the box and delivered an hour late, we're not doing our job right!
Freya: (... mom always liked pizza *sniffle*)
This is just pathetic.
Someone (probably Sif.. or maybe it was Freya herself) did get a dancer though.
Sif: *whispering* And then they did it at the public gym.. again.
Freya: Waaaaah... everything's wrong, now my computer's broken down toooooo *weeps*
Dancer: Uh, I'm sorry? (Wow this is the worst bachelorette party I've been to, ever)
This really was the worst party :|
Hazel: Hey honey, thought I'd drop by and remind you of how dead I am.
I'm not sure why Freya is trying to cheer up Sif, it's not like she's been exceptionally cheery herself.
Which was a nice chance for me to playtest my wedding chapel lot (or so I thought). But nobody showed up :| I think Freya's caustic personality hasn't helped her make many friends.
Freya: If you don't put this ring on my finger right now, I'll hurt you. :D
Atleast they look happy.
Jonny: Uh, where are all the guests?
Freya: Shut up and help me cut this cake.
Just what I needed!
Sif: Sweet, my burglar senses are tingling!
Sif: Oh, they just took the toilet again. Nevermind then. I'm moving out anyway.
She just dropped it out of her queue and the burglar made off with the toilet (AGAIN!). I was looking forward to a fight. And yes, I did move her out (I thought I'd taken a picture of that but apparantly not. I apologize for it being so sudden. I wanted less sims around for the future kids).
Jonny: I bet they'll take after me.
Freya: Ha, you wish!
Aww. How cute?
This is ridiculous. Is Hazel trying to taunt her daughter from the afterlife or something?
Writing thank you cards <3
Speaking of writing thank you cards...
(another batch of gifts)
Grim Reaper!? Really now?
I wonder what kinda card that is? "Thank you for taking my wife's mother just before the wedding. I'm sure the gift you sent would have been much appreciated if my wife had stopped crying long enough to look at it"?
Jonny's pretty studious.. (and smart for doing so out of the house).
Just like that. :P
It's a boy and his name is Hermes. Going from Norse straight to Greek here.
Managed to scrounge enough money together for a nursery.
If only this was the case for the kitchen as well.... :|
With Freya's old interests in fish still active it seemed right to get a pet goldfish (she caught the fish, its name is Poseidon).
And yes, Jonny is a good dad.
Time for another baby? I do believe it is.
Having someone in the house again that's good at repairing stuff is very useful. Finally the computer gets fixed. I can't say anyone minds that he does it in his underwear either.
Freya: My back is killing me so much I want to kill someone! *rages*
I really need to start having sims get together earlier, it's already Jonny's birthday to adult.
Freya: Ugh, all this nausea is really interfering with my plans for that great diamond heist :|
You know, those "pop" pictures are less fun when the popping effect is so much more subtle (even though I like the subtley getting bigger thing).
Also, Freya's been working out for her criminal career job (hence the weight loss).
I really am not trying to never show them actually interacting or anything. It's the baby/pregnancy thing.
Jonny: I don't know, it makes for a nice bit of peace and quiet for a change.
Did I mention Jonny's neurotic? No I didn't because I forgot to mention his traits anywhere...
They're (taken off maranatah's LJ cause I'm lazy): Nurturing, Kleptomanic, Bookworm, Neurotic, Hot-Headed (this would be why he and Freya kept flying off the handle at eachother).
Jonny: You're not going to watch our son's birthday?
Freya: Not now, must eat more. Let me know when I can have some of that cake.
Hermes is cute.. but he is a facial clone of his father :|
But he's got Astraeus' hair colour! :D
Jonny: Ugh, just when I wanted to go to bed too. You have terrible timing, dear.
Freya: Too... much.. pain.. to.. hurt.. you.
Hermes: *distracted by finger he just stuck up his nose*
Freya: My archnemesis! If I wasn't holding a baby I'd let you have it, right now!
Ah yes, the baby. It's another boy! Ares this time. :)
Hermes is still cute
And Freya hits middle age, while pregnant (again, yes).
(man the house looks awful in these pictures)
Jonny: Need.... fooooood!
Maybe if you hadn't burned the pancakes? -_-
Ok so the strangest thing, I've obviously changed her hair here. This keeps up in a couple of pictures and then I apparantly changed it back and then made her over.
Yeah, I don't know either. Just run with it and pretend I'm not an idiot who has forgotten what happened. K?
I also totally didn't forget to document another birthday or anything >.>
This is Ares as the most adorable toddler ever (and he's not at all like his namesake).
Also, Freya's ears which are Astraeus' ears, Hazel's hair colour and Jonny's skintone! And his facial features are a blend too (though I think mostly Jonny's) \:D/
(we'll just pretend the randomly mutated eye colour is normal)
Jonny, please don't pee all over your son. :|
Don't give me that look, Freya. He's your child you better be nice to him.
Freya: ARGH, the screaming is distracting me from my screaming! Make it stop!
Jonny: I don't know who to react to anymore!
Freya: Don't tell me, he's behind me isn't he? If only I wasn't in so much pain right now...
I do wonder why he keeps showing up at the hospital right at the time she's having a baby.
And baby 3 is another boy. I asked for naming suggestions at the time and as a result his name's Hephaestus. You can blame my friends for that.
More cute :D
Apparantly the shower causes pain and sorrow now.
Freya: So I want to have my look updated a bit but I'm not sure...
Stylist: Oh don't worry, I've got the perfect look in mind.
So yeah, earlier mentioned makeover.
I still don't know what I was on.
Very modern and with the times, Freya. This is why we don't let the stylist do the makeovers.
Didn't forget about the firstborn. Jonny's usually the one stuck teaching the children (because Freya is asleep for half the day as she works nights).
The curse of mid-generation updates, birthdays and births everywhere ;)
Hermes immediately starts off with pranking the house. Little bugger.
And playing with yet another imaginary friend doll.
Remember this as the first but definitely not the last time this happens.
Jonny: *splutters* When I get my hands on that kid...
Don't bother, Jonny. That kid is currently argueing with a trash can.
No. It is not Poseidon's birthday :|
Who is a cute clone of his mother :|
What is with these clone children. This is just like last generation, father clone, blend, mother clone. What the hell?
So after all these children and birthdays and changing of diapers and whatnot, a date on the town seemed right.
Freya: Some date! I have to buy my own damn drink while he plays foosball!
Truman (brilliantcat): You seriously made someone beg for their job?
Freya: Of course! Nothing like watching someone grovel. It's hilarious!
And then for some reason Truman told her a ghost story.
Freya: He's still playing foosball. And these people are boring. When do I get to hurt someone?
You're not. No fighting.
Freya: You suck.
Meanwhile back at home the television is doing the parenting. As any good television would.
Freya: I'm off for work. You'll clean up the mess, right?
Jonny: Which one, the one the kids left or the one after you get arrested again?
Freya: Touché. But that's why you love me.
Jonny: Wouldn't have you any other way.
Cleaning is what the older children are for anyway.
I just can't come up with good captions for birthday shots.
I fully admit he's still my favorite. I feel bad for being biased this early.
Hermes: You should all bow to me, Lord Hermes, ruler of chairs!
Jonny: Of course *bows*
Hermes: Now extend my bedtime!
Jonny: I don't think so, mister.
Someone got arrested.
Ares: Noooo, it's the terrible shower of doom! DOOOOOM!
What is with this shower!?
Hermes: I've gotta pee but I don't want to go in the bathroom with that shower! *dances*
Time to wrap things up with a trip to the park (I love these things Generations added).
Freya: Can you say "arrr" for mommy?
Freya: Close enough.
Jonny: (Hm, chess would be better than this thing)
Ares: (I wish I had food rather than being on this thing. They have food over there).
Ares: Excuse me, I don't know you even though you're my cousin but I'm just going to steal this burger.
Hermes: Oh sandcastle, how I love building you <3
Cousin #1: They like my hamburgers *swoons*
Cousin #2: Pft, sure they do :|
And yes, these are children of Embla. Whose names I can't remember. And the eldest is obviously a clone of Embla.. the clone gnome strikes again!
Hermes: And after I'm done building you, oh lovely castle of mine, I'll EAT YOU! With your delicious sand and worms!
Cousin #1: More people to eat my food, yay!
Cousin #1: All this family! So nice to meet you all!
Cousin #2: Hah, yeah, good thing you brought enough food to feed the whole family tree.
Cousin #1: You know not to bring that up! Poor uncle Tub can never make it!
Did I mention Cousin #1 has the insane trait? Yeah.
Hermes: Why is there no dim sum!? The trash gnomes tell me I must eat dim sum daily!
So does Hermes...
Cousin #1: Now now, you know the trash gnomes don't exist, silly!
Cousin #1: But the tiny little germs. They watch all! They're everywhere!
Ares has escaped into the bathroom to do his homework :|
And just like that we're back home...
And on that note I end this update. Thanks for reading and I'll see you guys next time with more birthdays, more pranks and more chaos. I may even throw in a fire!
Warnings: Language, angry sims.
