The Minchin Legacy 1.0
So, brand new legacy, and since my previous legacies have been far too successful (before the epic death of my computer), I thought the ISBI challenge was quite appealing. Despite the amount of grumbles about it on simsecret!


Jess’ stats are above, and her lifetime want is to get to the head of the dance career. To make for a random experience, I rolled her aspiration, star sign, and turn ons using this Randomiser.

The Minchin Legacy
The lovely legacy shack.

The Minchin Legacy
The welcome wagon showed up. I liked the look of this guy for awhile.

The Minchin Legacy
Also this girl is quite pretty, if Jess likes girls.

The Minchin Legacy
Hi, Vince Noir, get out of my legacy and go back to Howard Moon.

The Minchin Legacy
This dude just wandered around giving everyone “earthy” hugs.

The Minchin Legacy
Look, a crush is happening, but sadly it’s not directed at Jess.

The Minchin Legacy
Vince Noir, get back to your husband, you filthy flirt.

The Minchin Legacy
I liked the brown-haired guy, Jess told him a joke, walked away, started a conversation with the plant sim, and then he laughed his ass off.

The Minchin Legacy
Since Jess is turned on by plant sims, I tried to suck up to this guy by giving him a gift. Since we have nothing, I gave him that potion that lurks in every sim’s inventory. Naturally, he was underwhelmed.

The Minchin Legacy
He’s called Eli. I’m trying to build a relationship here. Games seem to get it done.

The Minchin Legacy
So, um, great, but why is he called Jess “Eli”?

The Minchin Legacy
Jeez, if she thinks that’s messy, she should live with a guy who plays Magic: The Gathering for a living. Everywhere I look there are cards. Believe me, Jess is overreacting.

The Minchin Legacy
Go, Jess, with the promotions. However, nobody has bought a video game.

The Minchin Legacy
No fail with the dinner-making. Jess is awesome.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess was promoted again, so she called Eli to celebrate.

The Minchin Legacy
He’s impressed, because he immediately admires her.

The Minchin Legacy
So she charms him.

The Minchin Legacy
And that’s all it takes to start a crush.
As a side note, the sunset hack I have is gorgeous, but it makes for ugly pictures.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess asks Eli to move in, and he seems pleased.

The Minchin Legacy
Look kiddies, putting out will make a guy fall in love with you.

The Minchin Legacy
At first I thought he was a wham-bammer, but then I remembered plant sims don’t sleep. I also had to stop my game and remove my hack that makes all lights act as sun lamps. I haven’t played a plant sim in years. Though, to be fair, I’m not playing one now.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess is asleep while he’s worried that she’s reading his diary.

The Minchin Legacy
While looking in his inventory (didn’t cheat, I put opened Jess’s inventory, and then switched over to Eli), I found plenty of stuff to sell to expand the house, and I also noticed he was a family sim. Cool. On that basis, on with the baby-making.

The Minchin Legacy
Well, that’s how the hubby and I do it.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess zonks out, and Eli washing the filth of baby-making away.

The Minchin Legacy
This is the start of Eli’s obsession with chess. Which is great, because I just put the sun lamp over him, while he sits there racking up the skill points.

The Minchin Legacy
Who the hell calls at 4am?

The Minchin Legacy
You know, this is so much easier than I thought. Eli’s quite OCD about neatness, so Jess makes a mess while she eats, and Eli cleans up.

The Minchin Legacy
Yay, first baby is on the way.

The Minchin Legacy
I love that plant sims do the “she loves me, she loves me not” when left to their own devices.

The Minchin Legacy
Though the emo face when it ends with “she loves me not” is a bit overblown.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess shows off her awesome by being promoted again, though she’s still not in the dance career. She’s checked the jobs every day, but so far, nothing.

The Minchin Legacy
This is where Eli starts annoying me with his sunlight depravation. He just keeps moving around, whinging about how he needs sunlight, then runs to another room and repeats the process, and I can’t keep up with the sun lamp.

The Minchin Legacy
He finds happiness in the pouring rain.

The Minchin Legacy
Then more happiness with “she loves me”.

The Minchin Legacy
Puddle splashing. It’s sort of like having a five-year-old.

The Minchin Legacy
A really neat five-year-old.

The Minchin Legacy
Pop!

The Minchin Legacy
We decide we’d best propose.

The Minchin Legacy
Then get married.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli gets promoted, and brings his identical twin, Edward, home from work. I have no idea which is which.

The Minchin Legacy
That’s a huge bump. How many have you got in there?

The Minchin Legacy
Chess boy gets in the zone.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess, don’t walk away from the fire!

The Minchin Legacy
Good girl.

The Minchin Legacy
As Eli comes home with a promotion (neither of them are the type to gloat at the mailbox), Jess wakes up, despite having an engergy bar in the red.

The Minchin Legacy
It can only mean one thing!
