The Lawson Legacy: Generation 2.3




banner.jpg

Last time, we left the Lawsons, Britannicus and Castor had just had many, many children in quick succession. Well... five.




We start this episode with a confetti explosion as Caitlen grows into a teen. She rolls Popularity, and her lifetime want is to become an Icon. Definitely do-able. Her turn-ons are fit people and underwear, while her turn-off is hats.



002.jpg

She's pretty! Apart from her hair colour, she looks a lot like Amelie.



003.jpg

Soon afterwards, Christopher is possessed grows up too.



004.jpg

He still looks a lot like Claudius. Here's hoping that they both grow into those eyes.



005.jpg

Okay, that's just creepy. Claudius is apparently in love with a much older man whom he's never met. WTF?



006.jpg

Christopher fails at muffin making.



007.jpg

The Ecological Guru "uniform" is fantastic.



008.jpg

Time for the twins to become toddlers. Celeste goes first.



010.jpg

She's ridiculously cute.

Celeste Lawson
Neat: 8
Outgoing: 9
Lazy: 1
Serious: 3
Nice: 10



009.jpg

Charlotte's turn!



011.jpg

Also cute!

Charlotte Lawson
Sloppy: 1
Outgoing: 10
Active: 6
Playful: 5
Nice: 9



012.jpg

In which I demonstrate that I have bizarre priorities. But the other cars are so uuuuuggggly!



013.jpg

Caitlen brings this girl home. She's pretty cute underneath all that makeup. Definitely worth befriending.



014.jpg

Mary is obsessed with Birdbrain.



015.jpg

It amuses the hell out of me when kids get this emo over a B+.



016.jpg

Okay, at this point I changed my default eyes again and realised that the kids didn't have Castor's eyes after all – which suggested that they were actually a genetic throw-back to Abbey.



017.jpg

Caitlen is really a lot like Amelie *g*



018.jpg

Sigh. Knowledge Sims are so predictable.



019.jpg

Caitlen gossips about her aunt to cute-girl. I'm not sure she's even met Bethany.



020.jpg

The family gets themselves a greenhouse and start a proper garden.



021.jpg

Birthday time for Claudius!



022.jpg

Haha, nice outfit, Claud. Oh well, at least it suggests he'll be fine with this being a same-sex legacy. He rolls Family, with the lifetime want of raising twenty puppies or kittens. Um... hell no. If you're heir, Claudius, you're re-rolling during College. His turn-ons are hats and blond hair, while his turn-off is brown hair.



023.jpg

I sent him downtown to buy himself some decent clothing and guess who was there. It looks like the blue-eyed kids do have their grandmother's dark blue eyes.



024.jpg

Claudius meets his grandmother for the first time. They get along nicely.



025.jpg

Post make-over, he's pretty much gorgeous. THANK YOU CASTOR.



026.jpg

Dancing toddler!



027.jpg

Birthday time again for the twins.



028.jpg

Charlotte is really beginning to remind me of Bree, hair-colour aside.



029.jpg

Celeste's turn!



030.jpg

She's absolutely adorable :)



031.jpg

With the twins all grown up, the family is short a bed. Caitlen isn't going to be heir, so she heads off to college to join the Dorm Of Non-Heirs for good.



032.jpg

Amelie isn't playing favourites at all *g*



033.jpg

I got a birdseed glitch. Is it just me, or does the seed look more like candied popcorn?



034.jpg

Claudius is a great Family Sim. He's very good with his younger siblings.



035.jpg

First talent badge of the Legacy!



036.jpg

Claudius brings this girl home. I actually remember her name! It's Kenya. Now, I went to a private school myself and there is no way in hell I would have ever gotten away with that makeup.



037.jpg

Yup, still cute. We get it.



038.jpg

Claudius gives her a make-over and she's actually quite pretty underneath all that gunk. Another name to remember.



039.jpg

Someone rolled the want to get the kids into private school, so Castor invited the headmaster to pay a visit. He demonstrates that etiquette is not on the school curriculum.



040.jpg

INDOOR PINGU!



041.jpg

The kids got into the school, by the way. Now that the house is decent, it was pretty easy.



042.jpg

Claudius then brought this chap home from school. Not Legacy material, but he'll do for the first kiss that Claudius has been wanting.



043.jpg

Um... possibly?



044.jpg

Ah, that's better. Shy Sims are a lot of work.



045.jpg

Claudius moves in for the kill...



046.jpg

...and FAILS.



047.jpg

Meanwhile, Castor freezes on the front lawn.



048.jpg

I finally managed to nab a shot of Britannicus heading off for work.



049.jpg

With the garden extended, the family decides to hire a gardener. He's actually pretty attractive. Good back-up material for future male heirs, anyway.



050.jpg

THAT'S NOT GARDENING.



051.jpg

Failed-kiss-boy is apparently a fickle little so-and-so.



052.jpg

Claudius should've been a Romance Sim. He does this every time I tell him to do anything involving romance.



053.jpg

SCORE.



054.jpg

STILL NOT GARDENING. Seriously, Amelie had to influence the bloke to garden. It must've been a glitch, because he was fine after the first day.



055.jpg

Christopher gets fat and grows up.



056.jpg

As a teen, it becomes clear that he's basically a Castor-clone with Brit's hair and Abbey's eyes. He rolls Knowledge and the lifetime want to reach the top of the Gamer career. So yes. Castor clone. His turn-ons are cologne and glasses, while his turn-off is hats.



057.jpg

Castor makes it to the top of the Gamer career path and achieves his lifetime want. Yay Castor.



058.jpg

Uh-oh, are the teens in trouble?



059.jpg

Nope! I got sick of the constant GET A KITTEN GET A PUPPY GET A KITTEN OR PUPPY wants and had the family adopt a kitten. His name is Catterick.



060.jpg

Brit applied for membership to the Garden Club. Although he got in, the garden wasn't up to wishing-well standard yet. He did, however, discover that their garden club contact needed to get into the Legacy at some point down the track.



061.jpg

D: D: D: D: D: Goodbye, Mary. You were a fantastic founder-spouse.



062.jpg

The boys are distraught...



063.jpg

...and the first tombstone takes its place in the family graveyard.



064.jpg

Britannicus doesn't have the memory of Mary dying for some reason. He still inherited, though.



065.jpg

Unlike Claudius. Apparently he's the black sheep of the family, given that he's the only one of the kids not to get anything.



066.jpg

Proving once again that I have odd priorities, I buy a pool slide with part of the inheritance money.



067.jpg

Christopher isn't going to be heir, so he heads off to college. He's cool, but he's just too much of a Castor-clone.



068.jpg

Speaking of Castor, he manages to get himself hit by lightning while taking out the trash.



069.jpg

Sigh. Knowledge Sims are weird.



070.jpg

Romance Family Sim Claudius moves in on the next target.



071.jpg

The twins grow up!



072.jpg

Celeste manages to age into a decent outfit. She clearly wins.



073.jpg

Charlotte is not as lucky *g*



074.jpg

She's a lot like Bree. She rolls Family, with bathers and full-face makeup as turn-ons and glasses as her turn-off. Her lifetime want is the marry off six kids.



075.jpg

Celeste is gorgeous. She rolls Wealth, with the lifetime want to become a Criminal Mastermind. Her turn-ons are hats and brown hair, while her turn-off is cologne.



076.jpg

Soon afterwards, Charlotte heads off to college. I like her, but her one neat point was driving me insane.



077.jpg

With Mary gone, Amelie was feeling lonely, so I thought it was time to move Abbey in. She and Mary had never actually fallen out of love, so they pick up right where they left off.



078.jpg

After a makeover, it's much easier to see how pretty she is.



079.jpg

This is what Abbey had in her inventory. Brilliant, huh?



080.jpg

Catterick grows up! He's cute.



081.jpg

Second life-time want! I think Brit deserves to primp a little.



082.jpg

Castor catches his arse on fire. That takes talent, you know.



083.jpg

Celeste brings this guy home from school... and says goodbye straight away. Because no.



084.jpg

Claudius, however, brings home this chap. Not bad.



085.jpg

He really should've been a Romance Sim.



086.jpg

Abbey rolls the want to get engaged to Amelie, so I let her.



087.jpg

Then she rolls the want to marry her, so I oblige with a quick kitchen wedding. At 78 Sim-days, Amelie doesn't really have time for a long engagement.



088.jpg
089.jpg

The wedding over, the final two childen head off to college. Celeste does so in her nightie.



With the heir chosen, it's time to see how all the other children grew up.



090.jpg

Caitlen.



091.jpg

Christopher.



092.jpg

Charlotte.

And finally...



093.jpg

Claudius! Which makes our heir...



094.jpg

Celeste!


Next update – college and romance... I hope.
