4.5 Mrs. White in the Library with the Pipe

Are you ready for a good old-fashioned game of whodunnit?

Screenshot-1554

Well too bad, ‘cause there’s very little mystery here. It’s been clear for a few chapters that there’s no love lost between Lira and Weston, and clear for Lira’s whole life that she’s up to no good.

Weston: For heaven’s sake, where are we going?

Lira: Isn’t this wonderful? The snow is blowing so white on the mountain tonight!

Screenshot-1559

Weston: I still don’t–

Lira: Time to let it go, Stepfather!

Screenshot-1565

Lira: A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I’m the queen…

Screenshot-1567

Lira: On second thought, you can be the king.

Screenshot-1570

And the king’s reign was long and peaceful, like a good night’s sleep.

Screenshot-1572

Meanwhile, Lira pranced on home to disturb some more shit.

Lira: Well, well, well. You’re the one who’s going to bear my brother’s children?

Screenshot-1574

Lira: Not if I rip out your ovaries first!

Screenshot-1576

Lira: My future whelps will thank me.

Screenshot-1578

Boa: It’s okay, let’s take a selfie.

Katana: Go back to the swamp, noobs.

Screenshot-1580

I guess Katana went on to lecture her because our misunderstood heiress wound up in the corner, stewing over pictures of the legacy’s birthplace.

Lira: Sunset Valley, hmph! I’m going to take this family somewhere dark and dreary where the sun never sets because it never rises!

Balboa: Maybe we should just go back to the pond…

Screenshot-1583

Lira: What are you doing here? I left you for dead on that snowy hill!

Weston: For dead? What’s going on here, Lira?

Lira: Never mind, have another drink on me. Oops, I dropped it.

Screenshot-1584

Lira: /’ll go prepare your burial box.

Screenshot-1587

Lev: Hiya, I’m Lev Langurd! If you’re going to marry my brother, you should know that I’m available for the post of Maid of Honour and general BFF. I’m great at nail painting and deeply personal life chats.

Malissa: Oh.

Lira: Good, Lev! Keep running interference!

Screenshot-1589

Balboa: Where were we? Oh yeah, we should go catch butterflies later, with our tongues.

Malissa: I like the sound of that.

Lev: Hahaha I know right?

Screenshot-1591

Poor Lev. She may never get her fairytale romance. She was already down on her luck when she rolled Workaholic, but her prospects are even worse now that she’s a spare.

Screenshot-1596

What’s a spare to do? Apparently, gossip with other spares about people whose lives are more important than theirs. Well, if it makes them feel better…

Florin: Do you think the baby will be a toad if he knocks her up now?

Lev: More like a tadpole!

Florin: But he can make those on his own!

Okay ew, go back to your petty lives now.

Screenshot-1599

Thankfully, Boa took advantage of their absence to ask his toad princess an important question.

Boa: Will you– shit!

Malissa: Eventually, with enough dietary fibre.

Screenshot-1601

Boa: K and afterwards, will you be my wife?

Malissa: Oh, how romantic!

Screenshot-1602

Outside, a snowstorm of trouble was brewing. Lira (yes, Lira) may have locked all the doors in the house, but that didn’t prevent Weston climbing up the dang fire pole to the emergency exit entrance.

Weston: It’s okay, this is all a mistake. You can’t actually want me to freeze out here.

Screenshot-1603

Weston: The hell? You DO want me to freeze out here!

Door: Password please! 😀

I know y’all are wondering about this strange, cold storyline that I am expertly weaving through the warmer romantic moments. Well, let me tell you something. House space is a valuable thing. We’re trying to start a new generation and Weston, father of two spares, is no longer helping anything by living here except himself. You might even say he’s stealing his livelihood from the legacy household. And you know that the House of Langurd does not tolerate thieves!

Screenshot-1609

But never mind that, because his child murderer is about to become…

Lira: Legally able to go to prison!

She has the socks for it, I guess.

Screenshot-1610

Okay seriously…

ellaria

Why do I always get sims who look weirdly like real people? Pre-makeover Lira is kind of a ringer for Ellaria Sand from Game of Thrones.

Screenshot-1617

Post-makeover Lira is considerably more terrifying, especially after she developed Friendly as her fifth trait. Evil and Friendly? Those three words are exactly why Umbridge is a better villain than Voldemort.

Drachma: If I open my mouth wide enough, will the cake fly into it?

Screenshot-1618

Several explosions later, Toadboa infused Mandrake-or-Mandragora Root with some other questionable substances.

Screenshot-1625

And threw it at his betrothed.

Boa: After this it’s off to bed and we go make babies, ‘kay?

Mal: Ribbit?

Screenshot-1629

Lev: So, do you want to build a snowman?

Balboa: LEEEEEEEV, we have to make babies!

Screenshot-1631

Lev: Oh my god, get a room.

Malboa: GLADLY.

Screenshot-1622

But that spelled bad news for Lira. If her brother filled the last empty house space, she’d have to wait years to produce an heir candidate, and what if everyone grew to love Boa Jr. in the meantime, and blah blah blah, so you know, let’s go on a rampage with a frozen bloody pipe.

Screenshot-1632

Lira: A clean decapitation. Excellent.

Screenshot-1634

Poor, unsuspecting Weston had resigned himself to homelessness and was chillin’ downtown. Kinda literally—what’s with the shorts, buddy?

Screenshot-1635

Sources cannot confirm whether Katana, just one block away, was oblivious to her husband’s plight or simply turning a blind eye.

Katana: I’ll blind you.

Screenshot-1638

Katana: Hurry the fuck up, son. You call that a snowman?

Ah, the working life really suits her.

KATANAPROMTIONAGAIN

Actually, I’m not even kidding. She’s earned so many autonomous promotions that she’s actually started saying yes to things. BOOM, Hell just froze over.

Screenshot-1639

Weston: Katana, are you involved in your daughter’s plot against me?

Katana: Yes.

Weston: So you want to see me die?

Katana: Yes.

Weston: What kind of marriage is this?

Katana: Yes.

Screenshot-1640

Conniving little sneak that he is, Weston holed up in the Festival Lot before I could tell him no.

Lira: I can see I’ve been unreasonable. Why don’t I make it up to you with a sno cone?

Weston: Sure, that’s just what I need right now!

Screenshot-1644

Luckily, Weston is “Easily Impressed,” which might as well be renamed “Sucker.”

Lira: Alright, are you ready for your sno-cone?

Screenshot-1645

Lira: Here it comes!

Weston: HAEEUUURRRRK!!

Screenshot-1647

Forceful ingestion never ends well.

Lira: Oh look, you made it lime-flavoured!

Screenshot-1650

Weston: Why are you doing this to me? What did I ever do to deserve this?

Lira: Oh, nothing really. You’re just in the way of things. Didn’t you ever wonder at your permanence here when they never gave you a makeover?

Screenshot-1651

Lira: If you get hungry out here, feel free to resort to cannibalism.

Passerby: Wait what?

Screenshot-1652

Lira: Or you can sleep, that’s fine too.

Passerby: Phew.

Screenshot-1653

‘Kay, know what? Scratch all that about Weston doing nothing wrong. Weston is a little shit. He flirts with every Face One who passes the front gate.

Weston: Lovely weather, eh?

Lady: Your teeth are chattering like a jackhammer.

Screenshot-1656

Mrs. Mesh Fail: Hey, sexy.

OMG please fucking stop.

Screenshot-1654

Lira: Hey, sexy.

What a convenient time for our first alien visitor, Xeep Pa’Lhaxalic. All hail Xeep, doorway to endless possibilities!

Xeep: I’m not a doorway, I’m a real boy! *leaves*

Screenshot-1657

Weston: For crying out loud, Lira! Are you really going to kill me so you can fill the house with half-breed children?

Lira: Yes.

Weston: Don’t you realize, even with me dead, there are only two empty spaces? Enough for Malissa and her future baby! In fact, you’re actually helping your brother!

Screenshot-1659

Lira: Shut up, math is hard!

Screenshot-1660

Lira: Now stay in there FOREVER!

Screenshot-1662

Meh, we’ll get him another time.

Screenshot-1665

Lira wasn’t quite so willing to let it slide—two steps in the door and he was forced to head out again for her graduation.

Weston: I really hate stepchildren.

Screenshot-1668

On the bright side, we got to see SimHeather and her new husband! Not a bad pair if I may say so.

Dimitri: *fountain of poetic Russian*

balboadimitrienemy

Derrr, although I’m not sure how I feel about her being married to Boa’s enemy…

enemies of the heir

Screenshot-1670

It appears he’s also a bit of a player.

Heather: Please! Laurel Grisby? Do you honestly think I need to be worried?

Truesay.

heathershusbandlikeslira

Fuck that, you’re too good for him!

Screenshot-1674

Since we’re Sim-spying, here’s Tommy’s tyke Jaime, still looking smug as shit.

Screenshot-1677

And Florin’s flame Kacey, a MARRIED WOMAN.

Kendell Shelley: Yep, that’s my wife!

Screenshot-1678

Seriously?? I know Florin’s a loser, but this purple-haired, melty-faced dweeb? Blegh.

Kendell: Did I mention that’s my wife?

Screenshot-1682

Obligatory post-grad clusterfuck. I think Lira and Weston wore themselves out with their little war.

Screenshot-1687

Speaking of war…

Drachma: Hey! Aren’t you that girl I wanted to beat up in elementary?

Maebe: Huh?

drachmawantstofight

Oh yeah.

Screenshot-1690

#wishfulfillmentftw

Screenshot-1695

Loretta: Haha, you lose!

That dumbass would be my Simself’s daughter. WOULD be, but I’m disowning her.

Screenshot-1698

Kendell: I’M MARRIED!

Kacey: Yes, I haven’t forgotten.

Florin: Why would you settle for someone so insensitive? It hurts, Kacey. It hurts. No one can love you like I do.

Screenshot-1700

Hear that? That’s shit. It’s hitting the fan.

Screenshot-1701

Kendell: But… we’re married!

Kacey: Yeah, and you used to have eyebrows. Things change.

Screenshot-1705

This is wrong, Florin! Take the high road, I’m begging you!

Florin: Look, Kacey, I don’t want to hurt anymore. Let’s agree to just be friends and spare my poetry book a few pages.

Kacey: No, Florin.

Kendell: GASP!

Screenshot-1706

Kacey: I don’t want to “just be friends”! What part of all this has made you think I want to  “just be friends”?

Florin: Um, a generous 85 percent?

Kendell: Sigh. Guess I’m right back to the finger-painting college

Screenshot-1707

Nothing a change of lighting and dramatic camera angle can’t fix.

Florin: What do I say now?

Something sweet. Something comforting.

Florin: Derrr… Do you want to wear my bubble vest?

Screenshot-1709Screenshot-1711Screenshot-1716

Good god, was that code for something?

Florin: Look out, ladies, there’s a new Langurd Womanizer in town!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

And now for a special bonus edition of Lev’s Background Exploits!

Screenshot-1687

Lev: Man, I’m hungry. Anyone got a sandwich?

Screenshot-1695

Maximus McDermott: How ‘bout I buy you some flowers and we can make a sandwich of our own, eh?

Lev: Yeurgh! That’s okay, looks like I get to digest my breakfast again.

Screenshot-1705

Lev: But lemme make you a deal. Ten years down the road when I’m a forgotten spare, you can be my fallback, okay?

Maximus: Okay.

Screenshot-1711

Lev: I really wish you’d make me a sandwich though.

Maximus: That’s your job.

Screenshot-1712

So much for that.

Lev: MEN ARE STUPID!

Screenshot-1715

And after massacring every man in sight (except her mother’s beautiful clown), she realized her calling in life.

Lev: I wanna be a Renaissance Sim!

A logical progression of events.

Sorry I’m so behind on comments! All these Liebster shenanigans have me so worn out. I’ll get back to you all soon, promise!

Happy Simming!

P.S. I added a page to the header menu under “Everything Else” called “Mysteries of the Universe Explained.” Unfortunately, I couldn’t explain all of the mysteries, but I tackled two: the baby names in this legacy and the chapter titles. Which imo goes a pretty long way to help you understand this crazy world. Anyway, I thought it might be of some interest to you guys, but if not, no worries! It’s there now, and I’ll probably suck at updating it like I suck at updating everything else. 😀

  1. Haha that BadLipReading reference tho.
    It’s always epic to see a new chapter from you. Are you planning on having Lira mate with the alien :O That would be pretty bad ass lol. I was hoping we’d get some toad-on-toad action so we’d see if Mal would be pregnant with some tadpoles xD. I know it’s not possible, but it’s hilarious to think about. Hopefully Lira gets rid of her step-dad and moves a future spouse in fast :O.

    • YES so glad you picked up on it. 😀 Considering those videos are a pile of nonsense, they’re strangely applicable to all kinds of scenarios.
      Lira’s aiming for an alien of some kind, even if it’s not that one! I want to make things a bit more interesting this generation, and since I don’t see Lira having a proper love story with anyone, an ET like a good bet. I seriously wish that toad babies were a thing, but at least they have their toad selfie to commemorate the moment.

  2. Oh Lira, how I adore you. Midnight Hollow awaits its queen. As exciting as evil doll person/alien babies sound, the possibility of Lira getting hold of an alien space car and using it’s laser cannons is terrifying…but I love it.

    • OH MAN I must be the lamest person ever because I played through the whole alien story arc without getting a single pic of Lira in a space car. So much regret. Can I start this gen over? I am beyond excited for the MH move though.

  3. Lira is freaking awesome, so glad she won (even if she does have to share the crown with her sheep-clad brother/toad). And dang, how bloody hard is it to get a sim to freeze to death? Mine always whine and autonomously come inside when they’re a bit chilly, if it takes many days to actually die, they should suck it up and stay outside a bit longer.

    And totally agree with you about how much she looks like Ellaria Sand… was almost sad that we had to transform her back into the doll, I loved her YA look.

    • Turns out it’s really hard to kill a sim without it being really blatantly obvious that you’re killing them. In my regular storytelling, I could just write a character out… but nope, Weston’s hanging on like an obnoxious piece of sticky tape on your finger. 😡

      I was really tempted not to give her a makeover! But I had to be loyal to my own story, not Martin’s. 😛

  4. Tips and tricks: Move a bed outside in the winter and get your sim to sleep there. I did this with a sim (b/c her hubbie had Loves the Outdoors), and she froze and fell over as soon as she woke up.

    Lira is such a bad, bad girl.

    Dude — WTF just happened with Florin? Did he just break up with a married woman and THEN WOOHOO her? How does that work? Did it happen autonomously, or did you manage to make that happen??

    I am in love with the outfit Lira was wearing while beat up her stepfather. She’s a bully with STYLE.

    • AHA! I will know for next time. 🙂 And there will be a next time, the way things go with this family.

      Pretty much! He pulled an “Ask to Just Be Friends” and she freaked but somehow didn’t hate him enough to leave. I’m a horrible shit disturber so I played puppetmaster for the next part. At the end of the day, she’s still married to Kendell (I think) and they’re not Romantic Interests anymore. Seems pretty fitting for Florin. 😛

      I love it too! It’s her athletic wear, but thankfully she’s Insane so it gets worn all over the place.

  5. So much happens in your legacy, I love it. Never realized a dual heirship would create a space problem, the spares will need to move out, but they’re so nice to have around XD.

    Florin is…trying so hard.

    I think Lira is going to have a hard time finding a fitting spouse, she’s more likely to find a slave and I can’t imagine what pregnant Lira would be like. o.O Thinking about it is just scary.

    • In retrospect, I really should have moved the spares out ASAP, but I wasn’t done with them! I also could have tweaked my mod settings to allow for more family spaces, but you know, rules and stuff. 😛
