The Lawson Legacy: Generation 8.3


394593_original.jpg

As a warning, there are over 100 pics in this update.





394872_original.jpg

We open with Elise being an absolutely marvellous mother.



395175_original.jpg

395447_original.jpg

Elizabeth pops back to say hi to her great-grandchildren. To be honest, they probably could've done without the visit.



395605_original.jpg

Bones decides to entertain the family with his version of all the top forty hits.



395951_original.jpg

Hunter has way too much energy. Kids, huh?



396266_original.jpg

Helena, on the other hand, directs her energy into showing off.



396487_original.jpg

She's not bad, but Catterick is unimpressed (as usual).



396796_original.jpg

Mother and daughter: a portrait of good genes.



396819_original.jpg

I see the gardener's been busy again :/



397248_original.jpg

Elise reaches lifetime platinum status. Now both she and Grace can just kick back and do whatever they want for the rest of their lives.



397436_original.jpg

First A+ for Harrison!



397676_original.jpg

...and for Hunter!



398079_original.jpg

Homework party for the kids.



398121_original.jpg

There's something amusing about children using the drawing table. They look like weird giant toddlers.



398402_original.jpg

This generation isn't particularly low in nice points, Huw excluded, but their wants panels are always filled with the urge to torment each other. Helena and Harrison in particular are closer to enemies than friends, although it's yet to disintegrate into any all-out brawls.



398738_original.jpg

Birthday time!



398855_original.jpg

Huw gets to go first. He and I both wish for him to not return to his scary toddler appearance.



399135_original.jpg

I consider that a success! I have to say that I'm still enormously biased against the poor boy, because he was such an ugly toddler, but he's perfectly fine as a teen. Definitely Elise's son.

399367_original.jpg

Helena is up next.



399862_original.jpg

And she is absolutely gorgeous. She definitely takes after Grace (to the point that I keep trying to call her Grace), but the grey eyes give her an individual touch.

400033_original.jpg

Helena knows she's hot.



400378_original.jpg

Guillaume stops by to steal the newspaper. No idea who he's annoyed with, but I am more than happy for him to take it so it doesn't need to be recycled.



400603_original.jpg

Welcome back, Vittorio :) I've missed you.



400800_original.jpg

Fiyero isn't quite as excited to see his husband again.



400967_original.jpg

401198_original.jpg

401505_original.jpg

401844_original.jpg

401936_original.jpg

And thus begins the night of a thousand scares! Well, eight. It's still a ridiculous amount of haunting on behalf of the family ghosts.



402283_original.jpg

HELENA: What do you mean, you've never seen a ghost?

He's actually the only member of the household who hasn't.



402432_original.jpg

Gaming is Huw's One True Hobby, but it's Helena who spends most of her time playing on the Lawson console.



402855_original.jpg

Huw and Helena head downtown to see if they can meet any first kiss prospects. Huw is more interested in turning the water feature into a suds explosion than looking for hot teens.



403159_original.jpg

Helena, on the other hand, is more interested in attacking her twin with noogies.



403423_original.jpg

Eventually Huw drags himself out of the head-hold, just in time to catch sight of Berjes Raymond, whom just happened to be his uncle Gaius's first kiss. He likes what he sees.



403571_original.jpg

HUW: Yeah, I'm really into drama!

Berjes isn't impressed. He's heard all about dramatic legacy hook-ups and doesn't want a part of it.



403792_original.jpg

Having failed to meet any eligible teenage girls in town, Helena decides to take luck out of the equation and pays for a perfect match.



404072_original.jpg

How could any girl resist that face?



404328_original.jpg

The matchmaker introduces her to Elizabeth Ng, and Helena seems to have a fairly good idea of what she wants to be doing later in the date.



404726_original.jpg

Elizabeth has a very interesting look that will possibly be gorgeous once she hits adulthood.



404928_original.jpg

Helena thinks she looks pretty damn good already.



405132_original.jpg

First kiss achieved!



405334_original.jpg

NO.



405654_original.jpg

405803_original.jpg

406221_original.jpg

A little Cute Lawson Kids Heading Off To School picspam ;)



406336_original.jpg

That looks a little uncomfortable, Helena o.O



406567_original.jpg

Just another picture of the Lawson's crazy gardener, Zion Shahan? Not quite. Harrison gets a chance card that results in him bringing a friend home from school with him... and the friend turns out to be Zion. I guess that explains an awful lot about Zion's ~*~interesting~*~ gardening choices.

(As it turns out, I had zero non-Lawson children left in my neighbourhood after deleting a stack of townies. I think a teen would've been a more appropriate choice for the game to default to, though.)



406902_original.jpg

Okay, that's just creepy now, Zion. You can go home.



407065_original.jpg

Helena and Huw head down to the gaming secret lot and spot their uncle Guillaume getting up to his old tricks with Des Peachy.



407520_original.jpg

Never change, Guillaume ♥



407755_original.jpg

Bones makes a friend and I die of squee ;)



408056_original.jpg

It's birthday time again, which means we're about to have four teenagers in the house. Grace, Elise and Fiyero must be so pleased ;)



408094_original.jpg

Harrison is up first.



408457_original.jpg

He looks quite a lot like Huw, which means that he takes after Elise, except for his hair, which is obviously a throw-back to Fiyero.

It's nice to see the OTH match his lifetime want.



408787_original.jpg

Hunter is the last of the kids to become a teenager. Fingers tightly crossed for cuteness!

Um yeah. Who thought that crossing your fingers would work so well? Day-um.

409303_original.jpg

I love it when grandparents and grandchildren hang out.



409375_original.jpg

409849_original.jpg

Another couple of shots of the boys, just because.



409880_original.jpg

Family meals are love.



410288_original.jpg

Hi, William. I see you and nature had a bit of an argument.



410596_original.jpg

You too, Elise? I assume the hot tub was struck by lightning, given that they both were fried.



410842_original.jpg

ELISE: Boy am I hungry!



410894_original.jpg

ELISE: Hungry, hungry, hungry. Oh well, this piano is sure to help!



411155_original.jpg

ELISE: But I'm still hungry! Why?!



411576_original.jpg

ELISE: Perhaps a good night's sleep will help.



411798_original.jpg

ELISE: THIS ISN'T HELPING AT ALL! Ooh, perhaps it's the bed.



412003_original.jpg

ELISE: This one isn't working either! Geez I'm hungry.



412351_original.jpg

ELISE: I think someone's broken the hot tub. I got in, but I was still hungry!



412642_original.jpg

ELISE: Ew, this hamburger is disgusting. Funny, though: I don't feel hungry any more. Perhaps it's this seat.

All brains, I tell you.



412890_original.jpg

I DISAPPROVE OF THESE SHENANIGANS.



413113_original.jpg

It's okay, Fiyero. The drink looks tasty, and you'll get to see Vittorio soon.



413390_original.jpg

Poor Grace is devastated. She's lost both of her fathers now, and her wife is too stupid to be much comfort.



413592_original.jpg

HELENA: Grandpa's dead, guys.
HUW: You know what that means? NOOGIE TIME!



413814_original.jpg

HELENA: Woohoo! Noogies all around!

While I'm generally all for sibling bonding, this is neither the time, nor the place, kids. Doesn't anyone want to comfort your bawling mother?



413977_original.jpg

Back at Vittorio's side :(



414217_original.jpg

Grace and Elise seek comfort in each other. Or in each other's naked bodies. Either is good.



414465_original.jpg

Unfortunately, they decide to seek that comfort in the older twins' bedroom, with Helena asleep only metres away.



414803_original.jpg

HELENA: Hi Mum!



415131_original.jpg

GRACE: Mmf mmf mmf... Mum's busy right now, darling.



415436_original.jpg

HELENA: OMFG THEY'RE NAKED!

*pause*



415706_original.jpg

HELENA: Hi other Mum!

Yeah, I think she takes after Elise.



415956_original.jpg

I cleaned out some of my custom content, and deleted Harrison's hair in the process. He isn't happy about the alternative the game proposed. (Understandably.)



416043_original.jpg

He likes this look much better, and so do I.



416313_original.jpg

416559_original.jpg

I send the older twins off to university so that I can focus on the younger twins. Huw never did get his first kiss, but I'm sure ACR will take care of it for him once he gets to uni ;)



416931_original.jpg

Hunter, on the other hand, is ready for his first kiss right now, and he's not afraid to pay for it.



417175_original.jpg

The Matchmaker sends Cole Ternynck down from the skies. If the name sounds familiar, he was last seen providing Guillaume with his first kiss.



417401_original.jpg

Once the baseball cap is removed (okay, before that as well), he and Hunter have an amazing three bolts of chemistry. I don't think I've seen that before in teens.



417539_original.jpg

Harrison is also looking for a nice boy to date snog.



417831_original.jpg

His match is Elmer Fudd Miguel. Cute kid... pity about the name.



418264_original.jpg

Cole likes what he sees. So does Hunter *cough*



418381_original.jpg

Elmer, on the other hand, is less than excited about being belted with baseballs by his date.



418696_original.jpg

He's also unimpressed by the Lawson dating ritual of the Blessed Noogie.



418864_original.jpg

Hunter seals the deal with Cole.



419090_original.jpg

Harrison fails most spectacularly with Elmer. Who didn't see that coming?



419451_original.jpg

Twintime with added WTF expression courtesy of Harrison.



419635_600.jpg

The twins head downtown to look for another potential victim boyfriend for Harrison, and spot their uncle Germanicus.



419845_original.jpg

You're looking well, Germanicus. Very... um... yeah.



420306_original.jpg

The outing being a complete bust, Harrison decides to give the Matchmaker a second chance.



420360_original.jpg

This time, she brings Mark Trimble, aka Draco, who has dated most of the teenage boys in the legacy and was most recently seen being unimpressed by Germanicus. (Perhaps he foresaw what was coming...)



420800_original.jpg

Harrison is more successful. First kiss win!



421045_original.jpg

Welcome back, Fiyero :) I'm glad you didn't stay away long.



421144_original.jpg

421591_original.jpg

With first kisses achieved, Harrison and Hunter head off to university to join their older brother and sister.
