I promised you an update two weeks ago but I think you are used to my flakiness by now, to put it mildly. I have a toddler and that’s my excuse for everything. You should all get one, they are very convenient! (In that particular regard. In other ways, not so much.)
But let’s continue down the path of mediocrity and foolishness.
We begin with a close-up of Griffin, our future torch-holder, just to show off his smarm.
And then it’s graduation time for Gillis, the eldest of generation 7.
It’s a crowded graduation this time. I usually find mates on the stairs after graduation in my other saves because I’m lazy, but Gillis is on his own.
He was actually valedictorian, believe it or not. And Most Likely to Offend Others. Interesting combination.
He didn’t escape the idiot cap though, but that’s fitting I suppose.
Gillis receives a seed or some other lame present from his loving mother. Naturally he is absolutely over the moon.
Gulliver, why are you holding your imaginary friend doll? Never mind.
I don’t know who that woman is, but that’s Gilda she’s holding.
And at least one of the twins were fully potty trained and so on, and I think it was Gilda, either way, +5 to me. Woop.
Griffin: “You know what I want? A brand new house! I think we deserve a new house!”
Gillis: “Just when I’m about to move out? Not cool, bro”
Gulliver & Gorkij: *MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH*
As a last purposeless effort before moving house, Gulliver takes out the garbage and misses the school bus. It would have been GREAT with a liiiiittle better timing.
Needless to say.
NEW CUCKOO HOUSE! It’s purple because it’s the colour of insanity! At least I read that somewhere, so purple it is.
It’s next to the school, not that I think it will help. -__-
Also – Etta’s car (now mainly Basil’s)! And Faun’s chopper. Because she’s a rebel. LOL.
View from the back.
Bottom floor, with a TV room, kitchen and dining room to the right and a study and library to the left, and two small bathrooms behind the very large staircase.
Will the Cuckoo offspring ever use the study for studying? The answer is probably no.
Upstairs: bedrooms, two larger bathrooms, laundry, space for hobbies.
Extra bedroom, in the future it’s for the twins.
Faun in the master bedroom, currently in her favourite colour!
Onward and downhill – Faun goes after those measly 5 points like a greyhound, but fails. Oops, SPOILER ALERT.
What, a house guest? With no party?? Quick, get the camera!
She’s actually here to meet Gulliver! That’s adorable.
However, potential romance is nipped in it’s bud by Gillis’ drumming. Sorry, love.
At least she got a free meal out of it. Perfect quality too!
Random teen: “I’m allergic to strawberries!”
Gorkij: “That would be the least of your problems if you intend to stay.”
“Just stating a fact.”
“I intend to replicate the shit out of that pie.”
You do that. I’m going to see if anyone’s asleep yet.
Griffin, for one.
Not sure if up early because rested or just up early.
Great, it’s another caking. Gorkij may be the only one who gets a caking each birthday.
I guess I have a soft spot for him that no one else shares. Bummer.
Anyway, three cheers for democracy! (That’s a reference to Griffin being the future heir, if you missed it.)
Go break some hearts. And toilets.
“Look at your brother, isn’t he dapper?”
“I don’t know, he could use a workout.”
Just because you’re ripped for absolutely no reason.
“I play the drums! It’s a solid workout!”
When are you moving out again?
Griffin prepares his watery grave.
“Actually, I’m just drawing a bath!”
A girl can dream.
I think I just took bathroom birthday to a whole new level: it’s the Siamese Birthday!
Gilda was fully skilled and Gisele wasn’t, so I guess that’s a + – 0 for me.
Gisele ages up first and apparently I didn’t even bother to take a screenshot of Gilda.
That’s her. In not the bed I had intentioned.
Gisele, in another bed I hadn’t planned for her. But at least it’s a bed. Also sorry/not sorry for the bewbs in the painting, it’s art.
“Yesterday you were a toddler!”
“Never take me swimming. I loathe water!”
“Got it. Btw hot dogs for breakfast really isn’t doing my heartburn any good.”
Never sleeping surely must be your bigger problem?
Doing a cheer, thinking about Teddy. The essence of Basil.
“Teddy, Teddy, Teddy”
I think soft animals in general are quite stationary. And intended to be so.
Are you actually going to finish that? Would be the first in 3 generations.
“Better believe it, Watcher.”
Oh my stars and garters! It’s an actual finished product by an idiot!
“Repeat that, I dare you.”
Griffin: “I really, really love school.”
Gulliver: “Why are you sitting next to me?”
Gorkij: “This spot and the nearest six are taken. Just FYI.”
“Books are my friends.”
Gulliver, “socializing” again. I honestly don’t know how he meets people.
“Rockets! So cool! Blasting off to unknown galaxies!”
“Um, so far I think expeditions have been limited to our own solar system.”
“All this existential pondering made me super hungry!”
Random teen: “Good to know. Why are you here again?”
“I’m on the run from the local authorities!”
“In that case, please leave.”
“Phew, I just barely escaped the cops.”
HAHAHA AS IF
“Why am I running BACK to the house where the policewoman is in her car waiting?”
I was hoping you could inform me.
This is why Faun is my least favourite heir so far (because genius sims are the worst and the chess master LTW is the worst of the worst) and also hi Julius! Gen. 1 throwback.
Generation 7 with you in the lead role will be a JOY, Griffin.
Didn’t I design tables and chairs for you people? A STUDY even. This is how ye thank me.
No fails, how about that. Had this been a regular legacy Gulliver would have had a girlfriend AND a boyfriend by now, at least one of each. But this isn’t a regular legacy, is it? NO, it’s an idiot legacy! Soon to begin it’s 7th round, after (gasp) exactly 3 years with generation 6. No amount of real life babies or toddlers can excuse that blog pace, I’m sorry past self, but that’s just ridiculous. Anyway, it is what it is!
