I’m simply mad for the new graphic effects of the
Nightlife Late Night expansion; shiny waters!
One can only speculate what Mr. Ramsey would have looked like in his underoos if he’d been born into this era of extreme muscle definition. *fansself*
Anywho! Last time in the Legacy Garden: the Sprouts achieved promotions and various accolades, the kids had birthdays, Miss Sprout found a smexy futuristic catsuit, Master Ash and Miss Cordelia were amusing and pervy, someone singed Mr. Cheese while he was sleeping, another podperson joined the family, and ROCKET BOOTSES!!1!
Hooyeah, Lisa did fun times family tree arts and crafts XD
Okay, so we’re missing a couple of pics and I didn’t bother with extra-extended family (like Lord Ashram’s siblings), but otherwise it’s quite complete and up to date!
I can already tell it’s going to be a pain in the rear end to sort this thing out in another generation or so.
Let’s avoid it for a few more moments and do a randomly ordered character recap, shall we? Ooo, yes, lets do…
Last chapter he aged up, did his homework all the time, and frolicked happily.
[insert something witty here about his hidden sneaky trait being responsible for me never noticing him]
Why Mr. Cheese, what a lovely derriere you have!
Mr. Julien Cheese is our gender-altered SimSelf yard-slave, and current baby daddy. He tends the garden and study’s when he’s not out working at the science lab. Word has it they make him tend the garden there too, poor sod.
He really doesn’t do anything more interesting than get promotions, but I love him for being my man-Julie.
Little Mistress Iris is the first, and only, fourth generation daughter, and is all that is good and adorable.
In fact, she’s sort of like a Ceres-clone…I’m not saying we dislike her, but would a little variety be too much to ask? Srsly?
There was a slim ray of hope with Miss Sprout’s last pregnancy…
But as you can see, that didn’t exactly pan out.
Wee Master Pepper Sprout (named by real-Julie), seems likely to follow in his Great-Grandfather Ramsey’s footsteps.
Well, okay, Mr. Ramsey wasn’t athletic exactly, but he did have athletic ambitions, which is pretty much the same deal.
Winky the Gentleman Child-Minder Gnome keeps his young charge well in hand, as he has for 3 generations of Sproutlings to date.
Last chapter our esteemed Matriarch, Mrs. Demeter Sprout, indulged in hot robot-lubbins, and mastered her fourth skill…next up? Athletics!
Cross your fingers that she has enough time, her life bar is full, so the clock is ticking…
Master Ash has expanded his hugging circle to include his mother; he’s been doing extra hugging lately, and while it appears innocent enough, one cannot help but wonder what sinister intentions are lurking around in that devious mind of his.
Miss Ceres Sprout, our current Heiress, did nothing useful last chapter *glare* moving on!
As a side note, since installing the expansion, Miss Cordelia has received a few surprise “upgrades”, other than the new chests that is: her voice is roboticized, and she has a robot need panel with the hygiene locked out…does this mean she’s a skin job now?? :O
Interestingly, though her hunger bar is entitled “scrap reserves”, she cannot consume scrap metal and still eats only regular food.
Naturally, I am going to have to throw her in the shower to see what happens.
Cordelia: “Balls to you.”
Ooo, and I discovered she’s immune to fire…to say she’s my favorite is a bit of an understatement.
I did not bother tacking up his trait icons again, they are boring anyways…except for the part where he is also immune to fire, that is sort of interesting for at least 15 seconds.
Well, I guess it’s weekend time…
Master Ash decided to spend Saturday morning in his jammies playing ebil chess and pondering his greatness.
Even his bubble portrait makes displeased face.
Ash: *makes ebil WTF-are-you-looking-at eyebrows*
Cordelia: *ebil robot stare*
Huh, when did she get so creepy?
In fact, the option isn’t even available to changes her clothes anymore O.O
Ash: “Wilbur, this is my new baby brother with whom I am oddly enamored.
By the time I found them, Master Ash had delt with the offensive diaper and was introducing Wee Master Pepper to our Legacy Beetle.
Ash: “It pours the sunflower seeds out of the package, and then it backs away from the baby.”
Ceres: *stares at son in bewilderment*
Ash: “Come find me later if you want a hug.”
I have a notion I can predict what sort of haircut their child will favor. >.>
Demeter: “Swimming with the fishes?”
‘Fraid so luv.
Grim: “CUZ I’VE NEVER HEARD THAT ONE BEFORE.”
Ooo! Look! You got the big pretty one!
Demeter: “Looks roomy!”
Mrs. Demeter Sprout, our Generation Two Matriarch, passed away at 91 days old, having only gotten her athletic skill to 6.5, dawww 😦
Shortly after this photo was taken, we received word that her brother, Mr. Leaf Sprout, had gone to his final rest as well.
Ash: “Are you okay? Do you need a friendly hug?”
Cordell: *wants to go paint*
Ash: “He doesn’t look good mother, best to zap him with your moodlet thingy just in case.”
It should be noted that Master Ash did not require zapping, as he was not in possession of a “mourning” moodlet…however he was fiendishly delighted…brat.
Ash: *looks on with pleasure*
Cordell: *is bewildered*
Ceres: “I must’ve done it wrong?”
Ash: “No, no, it’s all good, just give it a sec to kick in.”
Let’s take a moment to remember how cheesed I am that my founder was robbed of her big tombstone by stupid glitches that wiped out her want panels and prevented us from racking up enough points…
Survived by her husband: Cordell Sprout, a brother: Mr. Twig Sprout-Wagoner, 3 daughters: the Misses Ceres, Epona, and Cordelia, and 4 grandchildren: Miss Iris and the Masters Ash, Sticks, and Pepper; she was a lazy mother, had awful taste in men, and a juice bar problem, but she was good enough to pop out 3 girls, and she will be missed!
Unfortunately Miss Sprout got called away on a delivery opportunity and had to leave early.
Ceres: *vacantly ponders son*
Beautiful morning #20,987ish dawns in Sunset Valley, and we are only a little peeved that Cordell’s lifetime wish hasn’t yet been fulfilled because he actually has to see his dead wife’s ghost…what if she never haunts? I’ve seen that happen you know! What if she comes out and he’s spending the night off at a new girlfriend’s place? It could happen; he’s a hot piece of machine! Silly thing to hinge an entire lifetime want on a thing of chance if you ask me!
Yes, please to be passing them on to another daughter, kk?
But not the mouth…the mouth can die in a fire.
Anyways! Now that Mrs. Sprout has gone to ground, *gigglesnort*, I have a special treat for you!
Ceres: “The portable gnubb set! You brought it back?!?”
Ceres: *gasp* “Oh Julies! I though you’d never ask!
Julien: “Hehe, well, I know it’s been in your want panel for quite some time now, and seeing as it’s in mine too, what the hell, right?”
Ceres: “Can I wear my catsuit at the wedding?”
Sticks: “Honoes! My blissful childhood!” *sniffle*
Yeah, sorry about that…chin up dear, you’ll be a young adult in no time!
Sticks: “But I don’t want hormones!”
Okay, that’s quite enough attention for you! Obligatory vegetarian trait selected, back to more important legacy goings on…
Everyone was booing at Jet, poor Jet.
Cordell rocked out on his guitar for the entertainment of the guests, nevemind that he doesn’t haven any guitar skill points.
Apparently Lord Ashram Nunya doesn’t approve, but Miss Lana Sprout (Leaf’s youngest) seems to be having a good time.
As she had a legacy to carry on, Miss Sprout became Mrs. Sprout and her new husband took the surname Cheese-Sprout.
Colin Rosado (who is married to Cocaine Chimeree’s son Osvaldo): “Hee hee! Robot!”
Osvaldo and Jet: *distracted by awesome tiki torches*
We’re pleased that Mr. Bland and Mrs. Bland-Sprout showed up! And Miss Lana too, of course, though the poor thing was a bit of a wreck the entire time, as, if you’ll recall, her father has just passed away recently…Mrs. Sprout gave her a sound zapping after the ceremony.
Anyways, after this affair, Cordell developed an interest in mixology and jamming…most perplexing; he used to be such a nice robot.
The party was a great success, despite Cordell’s guitar playing.
Ghost of Demeter: “Juuuuuuice!”
Cordell: “Ew! Gross!”
Well if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black…
Julien: “Whoa! Dude! Awkwarrrd…“
Ash: “Honoes! Naked guy who is woohooing my mom!” *is scarred for life*
Iris: “Apparenlty I just aged up in front of the toity.”
Ceres: “Oh, well, that’s something of a tradition around here.”
Cordell: “Hey baby, what’s your sign? Ceres: *huff* “For realsies?”
‘Fraid so luv, ‘fraid so.
Did you get a promotion today?
Julien: “Define “promotion”…”
The Sprouts have more money than I know what to do with, it’s a curse really.
A couple of sim-hours after this picture was taken, Mr. Ramsey’s ghost totally fell off of the trampoline, it was epic.
That’s right boys and girls, this morning was super-duper birthday spam morning.
First up, our water-resistant skin job sparkles up into zebra-rific fabulousness…
Normally, Master Ash wouldn’t have his birthday at the same time as his Auntie Cordelia, but I’ve just installed a new mod that re-arranges the lifespan days to be more realistic, making it instantly his and his Auntie’s birthday as they’d gone over the allotment for teen days.
I like it.
Ash: “Rather shocking if you ask me.
I am extremely anxious to see what they make of themselves when left entirely to their own devices!
Mrs. Sprout buys the pair a lovely little starter home just down the road, which blessedly uses up most of the spare cash.
Julien: “I’m just really valuable as a Carnivorous Plant Tender, I’ve bonded with the specimens.
I’ll bet even that guy in the nutty coat gets more promotions than you.
Not to worry, he snapped out of it on his own eventually.
Having done his/her baby making duties to our Matriarch, it was time for Mr. Cheese-Sprout to revert to his natural state of Julie-hood.
This, we are certain, will give the needed promotion getting skills that man-Julie was lacking.
Julie: “They’re not very big boobs though, are they?”
But they have a lovely shape.
Julie: “Well, in a top such as this, it doesn’t really matter anyways.”
I have absolutely no clue where that pale hair has come from, Mr. Twig is in no way related by blood to the late Mr. Greenapple.
And Mrs. Cheese-Sprout takes over the ex-Ebil Love Nest…what with her gender confusion and Mrs. Sprout’s sudden affinity for robot lubbins, she felt it was appropriate to find alternative accommodations.
Winky: *does not like*
Julie: “You’ve destroyed my marriage and corrupted my self image! All I have left is my work!
BUT I bought you a hot tub
While soaking it up in the tranquility of the hot tub, Mrs. Cheese-Sprout came to a sudden decision about her future.
Ceres: *does not approve of Mrs. Cheese-Sprout*
Plus, I wanted another skin job baby.
Ceres: “Plus she wanted another skin job baby!“
Dawww, chin up Julies, you get to be a successful scientist AND…
Welcome to Stoney Falls Rest, the Sprouts decided to purchase the next door park and convert it into the resting place for their dearly departed
Every classy legacy family needs their own graveyard, it’s the thing to do.
Young Master Pepper grew up much like his brother Master Sticks, and rolled vehicle enthusiast for this third trait.
We’re rolling with it, hence the jumpsuit.
That being said: Welcome to the Legacy Wee Mistress Jonquil Sprout!
The Wee Mistress Jonquil originally rolled Good and Clumsy as her two traits, but, sorely pressed for variety, I permitted her a re-roll and she came out as an Eccentric Couch Potato…lucky for her, we do indeed own a couch.
This young lady also has the niftiest roboticized baby voice, robo-need bars, and she began life with the instant granting of 2 inventing skill points and 5 handiness skill points.
We are enraptured.
AND, Miss Sprout and Cordell simultaneously rolled up the want to get married straight away.
Julie: “Does this mean you aren’t going to sacrifice me for your colored ghost collection?”
Well…I…ah, no, sorry.
Join us next time for more Sprout-ish fun times?
Things to look forward to maybe: boring Heiress growing up, awesome robo-spare growing up, Cordell trying again for lifetime wish, Julie becoming world renown scientist rewarded with untimely death…and who’s gonna be our new Heiress’ Consort!
Fail grave of Persephone bids you good day!
