"How did I let you talk me into this again?"
"Come on, it'll be fun! Don't you trust your best friend?"
Hello and welcome to yet another Sims Legacy challenge! This time I'm playing The Sims 4, and I'm changing it up by doing a Random Legacy challenge. If you don't know what that is — basically I have certain parameters to fulfil each generation(household structure, number of kids, careers, generational goal and miscellaneous fun), and they are generated at random! And I randomised my starting sims appearances, traits and names because I'm just like that. I will also randomise future sims names, and randomise which of the kids will be heir. Random = not boring! And trickier to work into a story.
Meet Nicole Story, our founder. Her traits are Neat, Goofball and Kleptomaniac. Her aspiration is Chief Of Mischief, which gives her the additional trait of Dastardly.
She's moved to Willow Creek with her best friend since childhood, Sophia Kendrick.
Her traits are Loves the Outdoors, Cheerful and Perfectionist. Her Aspiration is Angling Ace and she has the bonus trait Collector.
GENERATION 1: Nicole Story
Household Structure: Single with Help — a non-romantic partner must live in the house.
Number of children: 3
Primary career: Criminal(Oracle) — this is Nicole's career
Secondary career: Fishersim — this is how Sophia brings in money.
Generational goal: the heir must complete their first aspiration whether or not they complete others.
Miscellaneous Fun: Gourmet — once per week the household must sit down together and enjoy a gourmet meal.
The BFF's household are the first to welcome Nicole and Sophia to Willow Creek. Travis Scott, Liberty Lee and Summer Holiday stop by to introduce themselves, and take a sneaky peek inside the girls' house.
"Love what you've done with the place," Travis says.
"We've barely even unpacked yet, Travis."
"Still...that's a nice bed..?"
Despite that awkward beginning, Nicole and Travis seem to get along well.
Sophia's first stop once their guests have left is to check out the local fishing spots.
"This water looks really gross, and I'm sure its filled with industrial run off...But the fish sure are biting!"
Meanwhile, Nicole heads to the Willow Creek Archives to use their computers under the strict gaze of that librarian there.
"Position open in the criminal career, hey? Don't mind if I do!"
And naturally she makes sure to Troll Teh Forums. Chief of Mischief gonna do what Chief of Mischief gonna do...
Nicole does greet the various other sims enjoying the library, but none of them really impress her much.
So when Travis invites her and Sophia to Geek Con, Nicole jumps at the chance to get to know him a little better!
"Hee hee, have you ever, uh, woohooed in a rocket ship, Travis? I bet its out of this world!"
While Nicole and Travis get to know each other better, it seems Sophia has caught his friend Summer's eye! Summer invites Sophia to a crazy party at the Chalet.
"Don't look now, but Brittany Cho is here! She's like, right behind you, can you believe it?!"
"Brittany Cho! I love her!"
Soon Nicole and Sophia settle in to life in Willow Creek. Nicole is good at her shady job and starts climbing the career ladder. Sophia is enjoying catching as much fish as she can, and does business with the local supermarkets who sell it on to their customers.
Travis also comes over a fair amount, and Nicole enjoys just hanging out with him.
Eventually, Nicole is sick of being 'just friends' and decides to make a move on Travis.
"What if we dated?" she asks, in her no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point way.
"You want to date me?" Travis seems shocked.
"We get along great, and I think you're cute," Nicole shrugs, "so why not?"
"Just what every guy wants to hear," Travis jokes melodramatically, "Why not?"
Nicole only knows of one way to shut him up. Nicole and Travis have their first kiss!
"So things are going good with you two?" Sophia asks when the two girls sit down for a gourmet* meal together at the end of that week. (*Its not technically a gourmet meal, because as hard as I tried to get Nicole to cook one, she just didn't have the option. She has level 3 cooking and gourmet cooking, and everything! The option just never came up. EDIT — she needed lvl 5 cooking to unlock gourmet cooking. *facepalm*)
"He's funny, and sweet, and a bit of a nerd," Nicole says with a smile.
"Just your type!"
"Yeah, things are going well."
Seeing her best friend's love life going well made Sophia aware how lacking she was in that department. She stopped by the BFF household one evening.
"I hope I haven't read this wrong," she says as she gives Summer a rose.
Luckily, she hasn't and Sophia and Summer share their first kiss!
The peace and happiness in the two women's lives is interrupted when a fire breaks out one night! Nicole freezes and isn't sure what to do, but Sophia puts the fire out in no time. Luckily, no-one is hurt and they can put it down to an accident.
The fire is far from everyone's minds when Love Day comes around. Nicole and Sophia both enjoy celebrating with their partners.
Nicole's "celebrations" may have caught up to her. She isn't feeling too good, and begins to suspect something is up...
"You have to tell him," Sophia urges. "He's a good guy, he'll do the right thing."
"But we've just started dating!" Nicole replies. "And I don't want him to 'do the right thing'! We've been together for two seconds; we'd be crazy to move in together or get married right now."
"He still deserves to know," says Sophia.
"I know. I just hope he doesn't run for the hills," Nicole puts a hand to her growing belly and sighs.
"Are you avoiding me, Nicole? You haven't been answering my calls," Travis comes over, full of concern.
"I just haven't been feeling well, Travis," says Nicole. "In fact, do you notice anything?"
Travis just looks confused.
"What? How could this happen?" Travis is dumbstruck.
"Well, we just weren't careful enough, I guess," Nicole replies. "Look, I get that this is a big deal, and I don't expect anything from you. I just thought you should know...And I'd like to keep dating if you're still up for it."
"I'm going to need to take some time to get my head around this," Travis says. "Sorry. I'll call you soon."
Nicole is upset, but decides to take it all in her stride. After all, she still has Sophia, and Sophia took the news very well.
At their next weekly meal, Sophia raises an issue Nicole hasn't thought much about.
"We're going to need a bigger place," she says. "This place is fine for just the two of us, but we really have no room for a baby."
"I'm not moving in with Travis."
"No, that's not what I meant!" Sophia shakes her head. "I've found a 3 bed place for me, you and the baby."
"You still want to live with me?" Nicole is touched. "And with a baby?"
"I'm not going to abandon my best friend," Sophia assures her.
With Nicole getting bigger every day, she has to take more time off work. Sophia steps up and fishes from dawn to dusk in order to sell enough fish for them to move to their new place.
It costs more than they anticipated, but their new 3 bedroom place is in a slightly nicer neighbourhood.
Their neighbours, Bob and Eliza Pancakes, come over to welcome them to the neighbourhood. They don't ask about the father of Nicole's baby, but they seem nice enough.
The day after moving in, Nicole wakes up in pain.
"Sophia! I think I'm having contractions!"
Nicole and Sophia rush to the hospital to have the baby. Nicole doesn't invite Travis.
After a while, Ralph Story is brought into the world! With mom and baby being healthy, they are able to go home straight away.
Thats it for this chapter! Not thrilled with the baby's name (I just think of Ralph from The Simpsons), but that's what you get when you randomise everything! Next time we'll see if Nicole and Travis can patch things up enough for Nicole to have babies 2 and 3, or if she goes with another baby-daddy, and we'll see how she's getting on with completing her Chief of Mischief Aspiration.
I'm going to try and update this once a week, but it will depend on how much time I have to play. In the meantime, thanks for reading!
Unfortunately I have lost my BACC neighbourhood — The Atlene Project — and will no longer be updating that
