The Moxley Legacy: Gen 2.3

Catch up: 1.1 | 1.2 | 2.1 | 2.2

*adopts serious voice* Previously on the Moxley Legacy…

Nikki, gen 2 heir, attended college where she was initially Grilled Cheese, and it drove me up the wall. Thankfully, she did well enough to re-roll her aspiration and became Popularity instead.

Her lifetime want is to have 50 Dream Dates, which is awesome. It’s one of my favourite aspirations, because it keeps the Sims happy, mood-boosted and if you date enough rich folks, you get lots of free swag.

All dream dates so far have taken place with the love of her life, Garruck. Garruck’s twin brother, Sorin, is married to Nikki’s twin sister, Brie. Brie is awesome. She cuts bitches.

Also, Nattie and Tyson, Brie and Nikki’s older siblings exist. And nobody cares.

Nikki is now moving home to live with her mothers, Mickie and Harriet.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Darling! I’m so glad you’re home! 😀

The Moxley Legacy
And this interaction finally makes them best friends.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Mom! I’m home!
Mickie: That’s nice, dear.

The Moxley Legacy
I send Nikki straight over to the computer to find a job. It doesn’t matter what she gets, since her LTW is 50 Dream Dates.

The Moxley Legacy
And this seems apt enough for someone named Nikki Moxley.

The Moxley Legacy
So, let’s get on with Nikki’s aspiration.

The Moxley Legacy
Apparently, Garruck came over all virginal after Nikki moved out. He seems to believe they’ve never woohoo’d before. Also, he’d like to try it in multiple places. At least he’s finally over his want of falling in love with Nattie. I know I’m not supposed to look, but curiosity is hard to overcome.

The Moxley Legacy
Garruck’s newly found virginity is quickly gone.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
It was at this point I noticed that, despite all the dating and woohooing, Nikki is not in love with Garruck. Which is fair, not everyone can fall in love with a single smile, like Brie and Sorin. So, let’s try and find someone that Nikki really is in love with.

The Moxley Legacy
A well-timed entrance from Blond Santa, as Nikki is raging about Bad Santa.

The Moxley Legacy
I get them talking a little…

The Moxley Legacy
… but Nikki can’t get past the outfit.

The Moxley Legacy
Well, error aside… uh, good? Do these things ever pan out, or is it just networking babble?

The Moxley Legacy
So, we scope the room, since Blond Santa is not Nikki’s type, and we find Eli.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki’s just about to introduce herself to Eli when ACR kicks in and she gets to give Blond Santa a mild kiss. Which Eli watches intensely.

The Moxley Legacy
After a brief chat, Nikki asks Eli on a date.

The Moxley Legacy
Oh joy, he’s a romance Sim. And Nikki’s feeling conflicted. Now she wants to get married to Garruck, but she wants to date Eli, and she’s still not in love with Garruck.

The Moxley Legacy
They hit it off. Since they’re both romance sims with good chemistry it’s not long before…

The Moxley Legacy
ACR kicks in and they try to bang on the bench, causing them to fall in love. In love. Four years of dating Garruck, and she crushes on him. Quick grope on a splintered bench by a near-stranger? TRUE LOVE.

The Moxley Legacy
Ok, fine. Get married. You’re both in love, after all.

The Moxley Legacy
When I got home, Harriet was being inducted into some kind of clubhouse.

The Moxley Legacy
By a fabulous lady with red hair and purple eyes. Yeah, you’re a future spouse.

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie: So, did you hear one of our kids went to college or something?
Harriet: … hmmm.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet may not care about much at all, but she is still mildly interested in her wife.

The Moxley Legacy
Today’s work outfit is amazeballs. This is her first day of work at the top of her career.

The Moxley Legacy
Originality. You two has it.

The Moxley Legacy
I feel that empty nest syndrome may be setting in for Harriet.

The Moxley Legacy
And she’s going to eat her feelings.

The Moxley Legacy
On the other side of it THE BALLET BARRE STILL FUCKING ROCKS, GUYS!

The Moxley Legacy
BEST. DAY. EVAH.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Have I mentioned that I hate chance cards?

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki then cried in the shower. But she made sure she did it right in the corner, so I’d have to put the walls down to get a picture of it.

The Moxley Legacy
SWAG! WE HAVE SWAG!
Also, this is the point where every sim ever decides to only do something interesting if a light source is right behind them, which means every night shot is a silhouette.

The Moxley Legacy
After whooping and squeeing about leaving a gift, Eli tip-toes away, lest he disturb the household.

The Moxley Legacy
He’s still tip-toeing when the sun comes up. Maybe try running, Eli?

The Moxley Legacy
Too late, Nikki sees him. I like to believe the townie teen is judging them for the PDA.

The Moxley Legacy
Get a room.

The Moxley Legacy
Hey there, Nattie’s boyfriend. What you doing?
Nattie’s Boyfriend: Walking to the lot next door. Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone.
(He then sneaky-walked back about an hour later.)

The Moxley Legacy
It’s all for the dream dates.

The Moxley Legacy
Dream date.

The Moxley Legacy
Eli sneaks by to drop off a boquet of roses. No swag this time? Dude, if you leave a grand’s worth of gift after the first date, you’ve set the bar pretty high. After that, flowers? WTF?

The Moxley Legacy
The gods are about as impressed as I am with the flowers. And naturally, the entire neighbourhood freaks out about the fire. The small outdoor fire. In the rainstorm.

The Moxley Legacy
That’s more like it.

The Moxley Legacy
Yes, darling, I think you are pregnant.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki keeps on with my adoration for bubble baths.

The Moxley Legacy
No, game, she’s not. She works out at the ballet barre every day, she’s at the top of the ballet career. She couldn’t possibly be more into fitness.

The Moxley Legacy
Anyway, if she spent any more time working out, she wouldn’t have time to canoodle with Harriet.

The Moxley Legacy
Since her aspiration is 50 Dream Dates, having romance as a secondary aspiration might help.

The Moxley Legacy
Yep, let’s grab all the extra features.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki is not having fun with this pregnancy. She’s pretty much always throwing up.

The Moxley Legacy
And Harriet continues to eat her feelings.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: I don’t think you kids should go to college. You four should stay here and eat pudding with me.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: … uh, ok, mum. I promise not to go to college.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: … and I certainly won’t make the Dean’s list either.
Harriet: Perfect.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Gotta go — too much pudding.

The Moxley Legacy
This would be a pop if Nikki was wearing something with a preg morph.

The Moxley Legacy
How about this?

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki, just like Harriet, is FUCKING THRILLED to be pregnant.

The Moxley Legacy
No variation at all. I’m sure Nikki feels special.

The Moxley Legacy
So, after a bout of morning sickness, Nikki moseyed into the living area to find Garruck warming up at the barre.

The Moxley Legacy
And I found myself thinking about how many dream dates we still needed. And that we should keep him sweet to get some alien genes into the family.

The Moxley Legacy
It’s for the dream date.

The Moxley Legacy
Nearly halfway there.

The Moxley Legacy
And elsewhere, another Moxley paints another Canadian wrestler.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet ages up into a completely age-inappropriate outfit.

The Moxley Legacy
Much better.

The Moxley Legacy
You make a lovely elder lady, Harriet.

The Moxley Legacy
No swag. I’m wondering if the reason we’re not in love with him is the lack of swag.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Who’s my darling grandchild? You are! You’re my darling grandchild.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: I think this would be less weird if (a) you’d shown any interest in me as a kid; and (b) I was not standing in the garbage you dropped in order to play peek-a-boo with my tummy.

The Moxley Legacy
Fully rested, I send Nikki out again for a few more dates, and we meet Anjani.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Correct me if I’m wrong, but you’re an alien, right?

The Moxley Legacy
Confirmation of his alien heritage was all she needed to fall in crush with him.

The Moxley Legacy
So, a date begins, and I have to say, I loathe the want to “slow dance”.

The Moxley Legacy
And Nikki wants to keep her options open.

The Moxley Legacy
But she also wants a dream date.

The Moxley Legacy
And one kiss puts him in love with her. Is it just me, or do Aliens fall in love dead quickly?

The Moxley Legacy
We move on to another lot as this one was getting laggy, and Raul quickly popped up. Since Nikki wants to date him, we got as far as “hi”.

The Moxley Legacy
Anjani: Are you cheating on me? You filthy mare! How dare you! You belong to me!

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Uh, I’m really sorry that my date acted like an ass there. I only just met him. I had no idea he was completely unreasonable about me talking to other people.
Raul: It’s ok. Are you ok?

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Well, I could really go for some chili. I’m just craving spicy food at the moment.
Raul: Oh, you’re pregnant? Oh, I thought you were just fat. I’m not ok with dating preggos.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: So, don’t you think you’re acting like a toddler with its toys over me?
Anjani: lol. No.

The Moxley Legacy
Despite everything.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Mums, I’m in love.
Mickie: With that nice alien boy who keeps using our ballet barre?
Nikki: No, with the commitment-phobic guy who bought us a TV and a bust of some old famous dude.
Harriet: *faint interest*

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Congratulations on having two best friends.
Mickie: What, you and the kid that moved back in with us?

The Moxley Legacy
Wow, Anjani, you’ve got all the makings of Edward Cullen about you. Obsessed after only one meeting? Check. Deathly possessive? Check. Violent when you don’t get your own way? Check. Grand sweeping “romantic” gestures instead of apologies. Check.

The Moxley Legacy
Luckily, Nikki is no Bella Swan. (Which is amusing because she’s named after Nikki Bella.)

The Moxley Legacy
Hi Eli. Whatcha doing?
Eli: Visiting Nikki. Shhhhh! TELL NOBODY. I AM STEALTHY LIKE A NINJA.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: HI THAR ELI! I MISSED YOU!

The Moxley Legacy
Anjani: *teleports to the lot like a jealous Cullen* You’re talking to another man? What did I tell you about talking to men?

The Moxley Legacy
Anjani: My heart, my heart, my poor broken heart. *stomps off*
Eli: So, I take it that was the alien you dated in college? I guess after all those years of loving you, he’s taken it really badly?
Nikki: What? No. That’s some dude I met last night. Garruck’s just fine with the breakup.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
I guess he spent all his money on swaggy gifts for Nikki.

The Moxley Legacy
I quickly shove an engagement ring on his finger while they’re on a date, to hopefully avoid any aspiration loss for a romance sim getting engaged.

The Moxley Legacy
lol. Hi there Captain Dumbass. I’ve missed you.

The Moxley Legacy
Yes, yes, that is the sight of guests in their formal wear and a fridge turned backwards, which can only mean one thing: WEDDING.
HI THAR BRIE! I LOVE YOU!

The Moxley Legacy
Uh, this would be sim Wing, whose house I use to townify sims. Why haven’t I made her a werewolf yet?

The Moxley Legacy
Another thing I never remember to do: not put out the champagne. The idiots will toast until everyone dies of old age, and the wedding keeps getting delayed by random passers by starting toasts.

The Moxley Legacy
TOASTS, DAMNIT.

The Moxley Legacy
You guys will get married, even if I have to hide the damned bottle.
Girl to the far right – don’t be that person who always tries to upstage the couple getting married.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Thankfully Eli didn’t go into aspiration failure. Thank god for Nikki’s LTW and constant dates.

The Moxley Legacy
Why don’t I play the other games as much as Sims 2? THIS. Smustling.

The Moxley Legacy
Oh yes, now that Brie’s here…

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: I’ve got a present for my favourite twin.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: Here you go, Brie. I’m afraid you can’t cut this bitch, but you can keep him forever.

The Moxley Legacy
I swear at this point, Nikki’s off her face on champagne.

The Moxley Legacy
MOAR SWAG. And this was just because some random crashed the wedding. Not entirely sure how many of these TVs we actually need, but I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth.

The Moxley Legacy
Toasts.

The Moxley Legacy
So many toasts that everyone but Mickie either went to bed or left because it was late. She’s still toasting. Nikki has about a dozen toasts in her queue after she’s done sleeping. I’m never using that champagne again.

The Moxley Legacy
Nikki: So, you didn’t go to college and you’re a romance sim in a committed relationship? Guess you’re really winning at life.

The Moxley Legacy
Eli: Let’s just get naked.

The Moxley Legacy
They both fall asleep after a long day…

The Moxley Legacy
And they both have this fear.

The Moxley Legacy
Whereas I’d be more afraid of the creeper who invited himself to a wedding, snuck into the couple’s room and watched them consumate their marriage and then just sat next to them while they slept.

The Moxley Legacy
I can’t believe you’ve been here all this time. Who are you?

The Moxley Legacy
Oh, Eli will fit in just fine. He’s a bubble bath guy.

The Moxley Legacy
The main platter from that meal? That’s going to be eaten by Nikki, who woke up nearly dead from hunger thanks to all the wedding toasts.

The Moxley Legacy
Nearly halfway there. Come on!

The Moxley Legacy
Since I’m playing with a shorter life hack, and Eli just moved in and I want them to age at the same rate, I had Nikki chug some Elixir.

The Moxley Legacy
Which apparently, like pineapple, appears to induce labour.

The Moxley Legacy
Well, bring on the aspiration failures from a pleasure and a romance sim…
No changes to anything here.
