Chapter Forty Two - Kissing Cousins

Welcome back to the Vulcans! We're preparing for more breeding, but first we must conquor the boredom that is university first. I'm seriously considering getting the college clock, even though it is a hack. But I'm not doing this for the points, more for the fact I wanted to get a Legacy completed before they developed holographic sims or other such technological wonders. Then again I get bored with baby making too when it is that time of the generation.... without further preamble we will continue our stalking of the fifth generation!

Turn-ons: Black hair, Undies Turn-off: Fatness
Personality: 6 Neat, 8 Outgoing, 9 Active, 2 Playful, 4 Nice.

Name: Ambrose Vulcan

"You may be my half-sister but I hate you! And your mother is a skank too!"

Hmmm see when someone invites you back to their place, you don't go around slapping them silly. Unless you're um...Angelina? I think it's Angelina.

Ooops. See I get used to things. One of the traditions of the Vulcan household is that the dog dies on the day the college graduate returns to continue the family. So I wasn't really watching Buffy's life meter.... It's okay, the Vulcans will survive.


Euw sick! Apparently doggy woohoo breaks even the thrall of the bubble machine.

EUW SICK! Okay so we decided to use the well for something other than money, so I had Ambrose wish for romance, and low and behold, Neo Vulcan, son of Hennessy Vulcan was the lucky guy to drop out of the sky. Despite being her mothers cousin and all. Euw, once more.

Since I got bored with Elspeths converted bakery/nightclub, I decided to try my hand at a couple of themed bars. This is Le Chateau, a french/medieval themed nightclub. We didn't like it.

And this is The Jade Palace, an oriental style bar and nightclub. We didn't like this one either.

Finally we come to Azteca, it was supposed to be a tropical inspired bar, but I couldn't resist the fountain, and the rest grew from there. It still has a lot of tropical elements, and more importantly we likes it.

"Ow! The water is hot and sticky!"

Maybe because it's burning hot lava?


As you can see, Forrest likes it too. :D

We finally have enough of the girls as teenagers, particularly Ambroses continuing wants to interact romantically with Neo. They get shipped off to University right smartly if I do say so myself.

Awww, Elspeth is old! But she still has that clueless face I adore. We won't make her prance around in the skimpy uniform that the employees have to wear at Azteca....Ok, maybe we will if we feel like a bit of a giggle.

Once again, Maxis tortures my sims, you do NOT want to know what pants that corset got teamed up with.

Ambrose finally decided she had had enough pretending, and dyed her hair all the way blonde. Here she is being accepted into the Greek House, which apparently involves the greek house members running from the lot in pretend terror.

I'll leave you here with the twins about to depart for the Iata Pi house. I have no idea how I'm going to run that house, there are already four sims there, plus the twins, plus if the twins develop relationships with other students there is the potential for the house to be very big indeed (Well at least compared to what I usually have in the house at least.)

I promise much hijinks next time, but for now, I must go collapse in a hormone induced coma. :D

Ka Kite

Chapter Forty One - Higher Education

Hello again! I haven't really been visiting with the Vulcans much during the past little while, but I have visited enough to have some pictures and anecdotes for your perusal. Please get comfy and settle in for another bumpy Vulcan ride. But before we start I'll just use the girls 'Going away to Uni yay!' pictures to introduce some stats, cos I've been slack with that in the last couple of generations.

"If you think I'm hot now, wait til you see the outfit I just bought."

"Canni watch you change??!"

Once I get the spawn of darkness to university I have to go the campus boutiques. I swear Maxis/EA adore making sims grow up into really hideous outfits. One bonus however is that Ebony met the man of her dreams in the form of one Wyatt Tsang.

"...we share the same taste in makeup too.... EUW Ebony! For the last time stop farting on my breakfast!"

One point in cleanliness does have it's fun moments. Especially when it is the uber-stylish Ebony farting on foodstuffs.

Awww how sweet! Apples first kiss. Once again fate has bought the Iata Pi placeholder happiness. I had honestly forgotten about Gina until Apples first trip to the shops as a teen. She started heart-farting over the chick cashiers all by herself. Its the first time I've had a sim prefer the same sex independently. I learn something every day.

"EUW! Apple I PROMISE I'll never fart on your food again. Seriously, you have a bedroom. use it!"

I'm catching these two up to Gina in the main house. Apparently Ebony has some morals.

Or maybe not. This randomly passing by student caught her eye, however I am happy to say this is just one of those creepy good-bye kisses that has nothing to do with the real daily relationship.

There really wasn't much time for bounding in the Vulcan house, we take the endless moment between reaching the top of class knowledge, and the actual exam to help the sisters bond.

"You didn't let me watch you change...."

"Will you shut up and enjoy it already?"

Ebony is a hopeless romantic, and Wyatt? Well he's a romance sim that counts for something right?

"Ebony, marry me and let me watch you dress for the rest of our unnaturally long lives!"

"Oooh whatta rock! It matches my eyes!"

Wyatt moved in with the girls, and after spending a couple of days shopping he returned with new duds, a new look and a shiny new rock.

Awww there is nothing more romantic that a mascot fueled fist-fight on the front lawn, as the floaty hearts of true love attest too.

"For me? Oh Wyatt!"

"Yeah its the latest Noyin, so you can video call me when you're in a changing booth."

Obviously Wyatt spent some time thinking during his 2 day shopping spree. Yeah it was 2 days cos I was catching him up with the girls. He did meet alot of people however, and he didn't really roll up wants to flirt with most of them. Only some :P

"Baby boy, I'm going to show you a clothing change that'll knock your socks off!"

Wyatts thoughtfulness and splurging more than pay off as Ebony decides to thank him in a personal and private way.

"Ah Ah! Fire! Fire! Ah!"

"Oh calm down idiot."

Yeah these two get along like a house on fire....which if you think about it isn't very good at all. I'd be quite sad if my house caught on fire.

"Gina my darling, I don't care what the establishment thinks, I want you to be mine forever and ever, say that you'll marry me and make me the happiest woman in all of Legacy Bay."

"Oh Apple! Yes! We'll overthrow the cruel conformity of the breeders and set up our own Utopia!"

Er.... Who'da thought that Gina was so political? After all she is a cheerleader!

"Uh Hello? I'm perverting your power base from the inside breeder."

Um...ok, moving along then. Look quick below before she starts.

The time has finally come. The Vulcans vacate the not-so-lush residence at 1 Croissant crescent (Or wherever it is) to make their way to the luxurious Iata Pi House.

OH SWEET BOB! That shirt with that tummy is all wrong. I know home-grown food has all that glittery goodness, but it obviously disagrees with Wyatt. Quick to the gym!

We'll leave the Iata Pi kiddies here, there are still two more teens that need to be aged like fine wine and encouraged to take that big step into the well known and familiar. Which funnily enough is the main focus of the next chapter.

Ka kite.
