The Lawson Legacy: Generation 8.1


334249_600.jpg

I can't believe there's an eight at the front of the title!





Before we launch into the update proper, let's take a look at how all of the kids and their partners look as adults.



334587_600.jpg

Gaius is still super pretty :)



334773_600.jpg

Speaking of Gaius, his phone book shows a very interesting thing that's rather reminiscent of Flavius. As you can see, his highest amount of chemistry is with Griff, while Guillaume is at number five. Obviously the game calculates chemistry for everyone, regardless of whether or not it involves an incestuous (or even bestial) relationship, then simply disallows inappropriate flirting and relationships. But it's odd that the phone book and guest list screens still show that original calculation – and it's sad that Gaius has to settle for his second highest chemistry score ;)



334960_600.jpg

That just happens to be with his highschool boyfriend, George.



335150_600.jpg

They have a very simple outdoor ceremony.



335564_600.jpg

Germanicus is such a cheery, jolly soul. *cough*



335707_600.jpg

You'd think he'd look at least a LITTLE happier, given how cute his fiancé is.



335876_600.jpg

They actually managed to get married without William going into aspiration failure, which is always good where Romance sims are concerned! And William didn't even have to change his name, because he was a Lawson too!



336344_600.jpg

Griffith is probably the most well-adjusted of all the boys.



336544_600.jpg

This is possibly because he has no idea that his fiance, Adam, has also been chasing after Gaius AND Edward Fairchild.



336718_600.jpg

Still, in the end, it's Griff who Adam marries. Whether Adam stays faithful, however, is a whole other question.



337016_600.jpg

And then there's Guillaume, who was so close to being heir, but lost out on the grounds of his gender.



337218_600.jpg

With a cute husband like Robin, I'm sure he'd have had a flock of equally cute kids. As it is, though, he just gets to pop around to the legacy house every so often and eat all of Grace's food.



337615_600.jpg

Speaking of Grace, she arrives back to the legacy house to find that very little has changed. That is, her fathers are still spending the majority of their days flirting with each other and making out.

So, what does Grace look like as an adult?



337834_600.jpg

Um. Let's try that again, shall we?



338025_600.jpg

Much better.



338342_600.jpg

The back yard is set up for a wedding, which means we probably have to find a second bride. Elise?



338632_600.jpg

Ugh. She's so pretty. And she has the perfect chin to offset Grace's once they get to making babies.



338756_600.jpg

She's also the first sim I've had in ages who makes such a big deal about getting home from work. The outfit leaves something to be desired, but it's the career that's to blame for that, not her.



339070_600.jpg

339449_600.jpg

With Elise home from work, it's time for the wedding guests to arrive.



339594_600.jpg

Let's just get a close-up on Flavius. I have no idea what that's all about, but yay Flavius?



339747_600.jpg

It's always good when you're attracted to the woman you're about to marry.



340194_600.jpg

They make a very pretty couple.



340331_600.jpg

It's a pity that only one father and their grandmother is bothering to watch the ceremony. As you can see, everyone else is standing around in the background, hovering around the toasting set.



340671_600.jpg

They get on with the ceremony regardless. Probably a good thing, as the crowd around the toasting set is only getting bigger.



340744_600.jpg

Given Grace's lack of nice points, I'm very surprised when she feeds the wedding cake to Elise nicely, instead of mashing it into her face.



340994_600.jpg

And then this happens.



341444_600.jpg

Really, Elizabeth? You couldn't have waited to die when it wasn't your granddaughter's wedding day?



341617_600.jpg

Fine. Take your tropical cocktail then.

FLAVIUS: I'd like to make a toast to my mother. Oh. Wait. She was here a moment ago, I'm sure of it.



341865_600.jpg

Mourning pets are so sad :(



342030_600.jpg

Never mind. Why worry about a death in the family when there are toasts to be made?



342363_600.jpg

The wedding guests are a little too interested in the state of Grace and Elise's eggs, if you ask me. Currently unfertilised – not that it's any of your business.



342730_600.jpg

WHAT?!?

Okay, so if you ever want to throw a really good party, apparently all you need to do is make sure that someone dies in the middle of it.



342927_600.jpg

Grace and Elise head off on their honeymoon, suddenly annoyed at Vittorio for some reason.



343293_600.jpg

Actually, everyone's pissed off with Vittorio. I wonder why?



343312_600.jpg

Yeah. That'd do it. Keep it classy, Vittorio.



343568_600.jpg

Meanwhile, Fiyero's alone outside in the dark, making his way through the wedding feast leftovers.



344032_600.jpg

With the wedding out of the way and the honeymoon over, it's time for the newlyweds to get started on the next generation.



344214_600.jpg

Vittorio has a tonne of cooking points and cooking experience, but he still manages to set fire to the kitchen. In a warped kind of way, that takes talent.



344525_600.jpg

I find the dog-bathing interaction really cute. Except, of course, for the times when Bones decides to jump out too early and covers the entire bathroom in puddles.



344651_600.jpg

That's not very polite, Grace. I know Elise's attempt at spaghetti looks like an erupting volcano, but you don't have to tell her that.



344871_600.jpg

Especially as the poor woman's pregnant with your child!

(AKA: first pop of the next generation)



345320_600.jpg

I'll never understand the Lawsons' obsession with playing beside the family graveyard. There are plenty of other places they could go.



345489_600.jpg

Grace and Elise are way too sweet a couple. And to think that I almost dismissed Elise because she was a cheerleader! (Actually, she hasn't cheered once since moving in. I presume I have a hack that removes that hard-coded behaviour, but whatever it is, I am very glad of it!)



345778_600.jpg

Elise has quite a difficult pregnancy. It's difficult to keep her fed and rested and she likes to combine the two by sleeping face down in her meal.



346078_600.jpg

There's no purpose to this picture beyond my amusement at the combination of explorer outfit and violin.



346296_600.jpg

Pop the second.



346440_600.jpg

Family meal time. A brief moment of calm before the tornado that is baby-rearing hits the household.



346653_600.jpg

That's a very devious look you've got going on there, young man.



346914_600.jpg

Oh, I see. As far as I know, no one has done anything to piss you off, but go ahead.



347157_600.jpg

Yeah, this is another shot for my own amusement, sorry.



347560_600.jpg

You look a little concerned, Elise.



347821_600.jpg

Oh, gotcha. Baby time!



348143_600.jpg

FIYERO: *freaks out*
BONES & CATTERICK: *don't give a damn*



348252_600.jpg

Oh, really?



348608_600.jpg

Baby number one is Huw. He has both mothers' blond hair and Elise's light blue eyes.



348894_1000.jpg

Baby number two is Helena. She's blond too, but she has Rose's grey eyes.



349149_600.jpg

Because this is a legacy, Elise and Grace jump straight back into bed to make baby number three.



349216_600.jpg

The parenting in this house is just plain amazing, as you can see.



349530_600.jpg

HUW OR HELENA: Mummy, do you think I could have something to eat too?
ELISE: Not now, dear. Mummy's eating.



349709_600.jpg

Just loungin' around.



350146_600.jpg

You'd think that this chick would've realised by now that the Lawsons aren't going to stop spying on her, no matter how many times she bursts into their house to poke them in the chest. If anything, it probably makes them more likely to do it.



350419_600.jpg

As you can see, Helena's a tiny bundle of sweetness and light :/



350599_600.jpg

That wasn't very nice of you, Rose. Or very welcoming to your granddaughter's new wife.



350753_600.jpg

Look, you made her cry! Elise is too sweet to be scared! :( (She really is one of the sweetest sims I've ever had, which is interesting given that she only has four nice points.)



351153_600.jpg

Huw, on the other hand, is just as pleasant as his twin sister is.



351235_600.jpg

Grace is the one who's pregnant this time around. Elise had such a bad pregnancy with the twins that I didn't want to risk a second.



351645_600.jpg

It's finally time to turn those cranky babies into toddlers!



351965_600.jpg

Helena looks so joyous as she's tossed into the air.



352070_600.jpg

As a toddler, she's... okay. A little simian, if I'm completely honest, but she might grow into her face.



352265_600.jpg

And then it's Huw's turn at the birthday cake.



352536_600.jpg

He looks even more pleased to be turning into a toddler. Perhaps he knows he's going to be cute.



352942_600.jpg

Perhaps not. OH DEAR GOD WHAT IS THAT????

And Huw officially wins the title of Freakiest Toddler I've Ever Had. He looks like something that would come and suck your brain out through your nose in your sleep.

On that terrifying note, we'll end this Lawson update... and hope like hell that the baby Grace is carrying doesn't share any genes with Huw The Freak.
