Welcome to “My game sucks and keeps crashing and this is a stupid legacy to try and fix it.”
Orchid: That’s a stupid name.
No one asked your opinion.
Orchid: I have an idea, why don’t you go to hell.
I’m using a loose version of my simself in a legacy i.e, I’m already in hell.
Orchid: Who’re you calling loose?
That’s not what I meant and you know it.
I send our unfortunate founder off to get a job in medicine, which is on the other side of this big reddish house. While she’s gone we will spend her fortune of $1,800.
Orchid: We’re following rules? Seriously?
Yep. We are also only using the base game and every stuff pack for now too.
Well, there’s her empty lot.
And here’s what almost no money can buy. I was too lazy to actually recolor anything though.
She finally makes it to the hospital and gets a job.
Orchid: Now that I have a job, I just need a husband and family. Everything will be perfect then.
Anyway, let’s take a moment to meet our founder.
Orchid Pizzazz is Brave, Flirty, Hopeless Romantic, Genius and Bookworm. She likes Kids music, Cookies and Lilac. She wants to be a World Renowned Surgeon.
Her husband to be has already been picked out, so let’s go snag him.
Orchid: The Overseer (lol too much Fallout Shelter) thinks we would probably be a good match.
Well, he is the best looking premade in existence.
You are apparently in complete agreement with my plans, so let’s get this man for you.
Orchid: So, I should mention that I love books. I really, really love books.
Orchid: I’m only an Organ Donor right now, but I plan on being a surgeon soon.
Young: So, you can hook me up with some pills right? Or maybe I should give you my dealers cellphone number.
Orchid: Well, I don’t have my own prescription pads yet. It might be a few years before I can be a supplier.
Young: That is the correct answer.
Orchid finds out that Young is in music.
Orchid: So pills for concert tickets?
Young: What’s that smell? Did you step in dog poop?
Orchid: Pets isn’t installed, so it can’t be that.
Young: It’s gotta be Maggie then.
Orchid: She needs to go.
Young: When I was little, I wanted to be a Hit Movie Composer, but as I grew up, so did my LTW. I think I’d rather be a Rock Star now.
Young: When I get famous, you can come to my concerts and throw your undies at me.
Orchid: Oh, yeah, that’s not gonna happen.
Orchid: I can’t believe that I just moved to town and I’m already broke. How am I supposed to take a logic class or read a logic book for work?
Young: Don’t look at me. I’m not the one who moved to a new town with empty pockets.
You were totally hoping that he would offer you money, weren’t you?
Orchid: Of course not. I mean, I wouldn’t turn down a loan, but the jerk didn’t even offer.
Well, money problems or not, that conversation got them up to friends.
Orchid: I want to be Good friends with him now.
Orchid: You really are the hottest premade in the history of Sims 3, aren’t you?
Young: Well, I suppose that’s correct.
Orchid: I think we should keep flirting until you can be my boyfriend.
Aria: Ugh, why can’t these people get a room?
Several flirts later, Orchid decides they need to be best friends now.
Orchid: I don’t know why I want that since it delays kissing him.
Sheesh, girl has it bad.
Orchid: I’m not the town bike, but you can ride me like I am.
Orchid: What kind of music do I like when I’m in bed with a man? Milli Vanilli comes to mind.
Young: I sure as hell hope you’re joking.
Orchid: Hahaha, I had you going for a second.
Young: Yeah, right out the door.
Or course him talking about his new job with her reset their flirty progress and she had to start all over again.
Ah, sweet success.
Orchid: It wouldn’t be a proper legacy if we didn’t go from strangers to marriage on the same day. Go steady with me?
Maybe you should take him home. An empty store is not quite the place to be and there are a bunch of people coming and going.
Orchid: Holy crap, he has a tour bus!
I thought he was lower level than that. Yes!
Young: It’s very open and spacious. *fakesmile*
Orchid: At least I have a bed.
Young: Yes, we must really check that out a bit closer.
Young: Hey! Where’d you go? C’mere!
Orchid: I’m right here.
Dude isn’t very bright is he?
Luckily the two only had a regular woohoo.
Young: You were fabulous, babe!
Orchid: Man, you totally wore me out.
Orchid: Would you like to move in with me?
Young Jae Kim moves in with a guitar, a book and all the money from his house. Apparently SP had already split up most households. He is level 6 in music and has a level 5 guitar skill.
He Loves the Outdoors, is a virtuoso, good, friendly and a green thumb. He likes Pop, Cobbler and Lilac.
There sure are some crappy shadows at night in this town. Anyway, Orchid makes a salad as her first meal.
Orchid: Only because you have not gotten me that stove I want.
Young put down the guitar and ran over to Orchid. He proceeded to kiss, flirt and make out with her.
Orchid: You know, if we are to survive in Midnight Hollow, I suggest we have a house built. The shadows from the trees are annoying.
Orchid: I was sleeping goddamit!
Young: Oops. Maybe I should build a music room when we do the house.
Young; Hurry up, Orc, I think we can get in a quicky before you leave for work.
Orchid: Don’t ever call me an Orc again.
Orchid: Or maybe not. She was slightly late to work.
Young: Woo! It’s almost time for a house!
And for the lighting mod to be put in.
Young: It’s kind of interesting. I guess.
Young: Oh wow, we even got a door!
He celebrates by checking the acoustics of the living room/kitchen.
He checks out the chess set as soon as he rolled the want to learn the logic skill.
The bedroom never got done, but that does not stop them from having fun.
I do actually recolor this all later on.
The outside is dark and dreary to fit in with Midnight Hollow.
On the left is two bedrooms and an area all blocked off for no reason. I think it was going to be a bathroom later on.
The upstairs is for skilling objects. I later remembered that I am only base game, which has jack shit for skilling items.
The master bathroom got done while they were sleeping.
I had just MOO’d them outside when this happened.
Orchid: The police are on their way. Stay right there!
Officer: The burglar got away. Maybe you should call next time instead of email for help.
Orchid: Oh, great idea!
Here is the recoloring that Orchid did while Young was at work. She kept his modern theme.
Young: Stupid slow cops. Good thing the burglar didn’t get anything.
I was thinking that they were gonna end up with a shotgun wedding.
Orchid: No, no babies yet. Bad salad.
I am not ever telling them to Try for Baby. I am letting woohooer (at default) and SP plan their family. I am also not cancelling any woohoo unless they really have something better to do.
With the new coloring, they both get the Beautifully Decorated moodlet now. Young spends most of his time playing the guitar.
Oh and he is catching up on his Compositions.
I think he has two days off of work. He heads out for a guitar class.
His performance meter is unhappy, so he goes back in and Performs a Concert. He will do this everyday until it’s a nice happy green face.
Orchid reads a logic book before playing some chess.
Another day, another concert.
Young learned another Composition.
We can thank the Dysfunkshinul Legacy for me trying out the “Deghostify” option. She did hers on the youngest Salas ghost, Frieda, while I tried it out on her (slightly) older sister, Carol. This is the coolest thing I never knew about Debugenabler. Oh and since, I have spent the better part of a week trying to catch up on her blog, which gave me the idea to do an actual legacy (which I have tried and never completed a couple of times).
Back home, Orchid reads a cookbook before getting some more chess time in.
Everyday, when one comes home from work, they must woohoo. They work such different hours, that this is the only way to keep up the relationship.
It finally happened! Young was playing guitar, as usual and Orchid was painting.
Orchid: I have to get to work, but will you marry me?
Young: Yay, of course I will!
Orchid wanted the hot tub, but Young was the one who wanted to go “hot tubbing”.
I missed her first promotion a few days prior, but she is doing pretty well. I have her work hard every day.
They still continue to be adorably sweet together.
Young: Stressed out from work? I have a cure for that!
Orchid: I bet you do, stud.
Quickie marriage in the kitchen!
Young is a green thumb and has been wanting to plant seeds for days. He finally learns the gardening skill and is able to plant what shows up in his inventory.
Orchid is tinkering her way up the handiness skill.
I don’t believe in maternity leave, but I think she has the day off anyway. She helped out in the garden.
Finished a painting and then got an opportunity to gain a guitar point.
Orchid: How does Young make this look so easy?
Young is either going to work or going to perform a concert while Orchid follows to Report on Progress at the theater.
Someone else was having a concert, so Young just heads in to watch it.
Glad this isn’t an ISBI. Young played guitar until he literally dropped.
The belly is a growin’.
Young: Really, I thought you just ate a watermelon or something.
Young; OMG! It’s time.
Young takes off parts unknown and Orchid was literally in labor of eight hours.
..and we have a very jaundiced baby girl named Passion Fruit Pizzaz. She is an Artistic Natural Cook who likes Rockabilly, Spaghetti with Veggie Sauce and Spiceberry.
Babies get to benefit from the motive maxing swing for the freaking long ass time that babies are babies.
I think the honeymoon vacation time is almost over. Orchid spends her free time between the chess set and painting all while listening to Tab Casts.
She continues to help in the garden too.
Young: Come to daddy!
Young finally convinced me to let her out of the swing so he could have some time with her.
Then he took off to do a concert.
Young: Ugh, someone already booked the theater! I guess I’ll just go in and watch.
Jin: I heard the guy sucks. I wouldn’t bother if I were you.
Young: Well, I have it booked next and I don’t want to drive all the way home just to turn around and come back.
Edmund: Halp! I have serving platter hand!
True Story: I couldn’t remember his name, so I went in game to find out. A whole lifetime has passed since the pic at the theater and he still has serving platter hand.
Mitchell: OMG, dad! Why you not fixed yet?
*fix invisible sim* He looks better now at least!
Okay now that we did a time jump forward, let’s get back to last week.
I never did get a proper shot of the nursery, but it’s very Spiceberry-ish. Unless you are a wall light. Then you’re not Spiceberry-ish at all.
Wall Light; I clash with this room.
I then noticed how big this first chapter was and decided to end it right here.
