Chapter 1: At The Heart of Twinbrook...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ohio there ;) Welcome all to the very first chapter of my brand new legacy!
This here is the beautiful town of Twinbrook, and it is to be taken over for the next Idannohoweverlong by me and my legacy playin' skillz, oh yah.

One thing I should mention first though. This time, legacy rules are out (though it's not like I followed them properly before).
This is not a challengacy, a freeacy, a phallacy, an aristocracy, a surrogacy, or a conspiracy. It's a dowhatthefuckIwantacy.

Legacy rules are now guidelines only. After all, why rule out ghosts, moving house, and all sorts of other ace things?

Let's have some fun shall we ;)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
This here is Winter Heart, founder extraordinare.
His traits are Eccentric, Hopeless Romantic, Computer Whiz, Genius, and Light Sleeper.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Now some of you are already familiar with Winter, and for those who aren't here's the skinny:
On FuryRed Says I had an unofficial legacy of sorts, of which Winter is the third generation. Eventually, with my Prison story going tits up and with Winter being such a cutie, I decided he should branch out into proper legacydom. That's where we come in now.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
You know instead of legacy points I may just count how many rules I break instead... Numero Uno states you should move your Simmie into a big ass plot of land and make him eat cereal on the toilet until he can afford furniture. Not for me! Winter's got himself his very own house.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
...I didn't say it was a palace though. It's very basic but it has everything the boy needs, so all is bon.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Mmm, what better way to start your first day in a new home than by doing laundry in your undercrackers?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Could we be any more white trash?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, we can. Y'see, as Winter's an Eccentric his mind is all whirry and full of mad genius, so naturally a career as a self-employed Inventor was the way forward.
First stop was the local junkyard to search for parts.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Afterwards came a nice stroll through town to meet the locals, and as you can see not an ugly townie in sight (I stripped the place of EA fuglies and replaced them with pre-mades).


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Although not all of them are pre-mades... Anyone recognise her?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Readers of The Mars Family Legacy may remember two girls with the shiniest red hair, girls named Allune and Alexis...
Yes, the Weston (nee FuryRed) family lives on as generation five move into Twinbrook. Told you I'd keep them around ;)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After a first day of collecting junk and meeting peoples, the following morning was spent practising the inventing skill.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It didn't take Winter too long at all to reach level 2. Lean mean inventing machine.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Although this wasn't without a few mishaps... Silly boy, hammering his own thumb.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, and after inventing for a good few days Winter was rewarded with this... creepy gnome thing.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It seems, well, not sweet and innocent but at least bearable, but it's not! Every single time I take the camera away from it, I come back and it's moved D:
I fear what it might do next...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Several days of legacy living down the line and it didn't take long for things to fall to pieces... Lots of time inventing + no cleaning + no maid = dirty Winter. I think he needs a woman to keep things tidy...
Oh yeah, rampant sexism in the workplace! ;)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In preparation for a good olde fashioned wifesearch Winter first went to get himself a tattoo.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And here be the finished project ;)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Later on that day Winter paid a visit to his sister Autumn. Now, I know some of you are probably saywhating right now, but again this is because Winter grew up on my blog, so he has family and everyfink.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Autumn is Winter's big sis ^_^ They're like best buddies which is nice, but we'll see more of her some other time.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Firstly we have more important things on the agenda ;)
After scoping out the town for a bit and finding no one suitable, Winter took to knocking on doors in search for some company. In time he arrived at this house, and met Zuma.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Winter took to Zuma immediately, but his breath fell short when she told him she already had a boyfriend. Still, Winter saw something in Zuma that mattered, and so he decided to be happy with just friendship.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In between building up a friendship with Zuma, Winter continued to pursue the inventing skill. By the time he reached level 5 he was able to do something verrryyyy interesting...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Say buhbye to the telly everyone...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
BOOM!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
My oh my do I love watching Winter detonate things :D


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Here's a little piece of advice though, if you're thinking of blowing up some shiz yourself, be aware, some explosions can have a little more gusto than others...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Fuck


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Yeah


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After that spot of mindful vandalism, Winter headed to the consignment store to stalk, I mean, visit Zuma.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Really the boy should just pack up and move on, but he keeps wishing to hang out with Zuma, talk to her, touch her etc. and I can't say no to him.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, and he does this a lot too. Winter, did no one tell you how to perv subtly?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Speaking of not being subtle... At the weekend Winter was invited over to Zuma's house, but guess what he did when he got there? In a matter of minutes the washing machine was no more.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And the barbeque.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And the picnic bench.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was no surprise that Zuma agreed to move in with Winter after that- she didn't have any furniture left anyways.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hmm, way to make yourself feel at home...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was very cosy in the Heart/Meadows household from the off, what with them only being able to afford one bed and all. Still, it's not like Winter minded.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
What he did mind though was the little slice of reality that would be served to him every time he saw Zuma with her boyfriend.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The whole situation pained and plagued Winter. Zuma was taken and he should just accept that, so why did he still feel this way? It was impossible to contest the emotions, because everytime she wrapped her arms around him Winter felt himself come to life.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In the end there was nothing else to do but repress. Inventing helped; it distracted him for a while, and the rest- the acceptance- he supposed it would come with time.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
*creepy gnome hiatus*


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In efforts of still looking for a suitable partner, Winter again took to the streets (...not street corners though).
On a return visit to the Weston household he got to meet Allune's younger sister at last, and isn't she just a treat for the eyes?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Mm, not only that but Alexis is a bit of a frisky little vixen- she started flirting with Winter only a few minutes after meeting him (and with no help from me).


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
As time went on Winter and Alexis spent a lot of time together, partly due to their mutual love of the trampoline.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, but maybe that love will soon turn to hate for Alexis...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
*chortle*


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
By this point I was rocking back and forth laughing at my compizzle.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ouch...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Pretty good Alexis, maybe a little sloppy on the dismount. I'd give you an 8.5.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Winter gave her rather more than that.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Another day another fun aspect of the inventing skill as Winter starts to drill up his backyard in search of... I don't know what. Moles?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Zuma meanwhile was working to learn the scuplting skill. Yep, these two are both self-employed, which is nice but somewhat detrimental to their homelife...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Sometimes I like it when my Sims don't have a maid- it's nice to see them looking after themselves- but in the case of Winter and Zuma it just means they end up living in A FACKING SHITHOLE.
Seriously, they never clean unless I force them too, they don't do the washing up, they don't wash their clothes. Dirty little beggars (though Winter looks nice cleaning the loo in his pants doesn't he?)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Oh, and the other major downside of being self-employed and crap with money and failing at life means that you're often treated to a visit by the repoman.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
You know, in anyone else's game this scene might seem a tad unusual, but for me?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
...Nope, seems about right.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After surviving the attack of the repoman with the bed still intact, Winter decided to invite Alexis for a little rumble, but she was having none of it! Pricktease...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Aww, look at the face! You've gone and hurt his feelings now.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
*glares* That is not the type of bouncing I had in mind.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
But you know what they say don't you? If at first you don't succeed, slip her some rohypnol and try again...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Don't ask me about the strange white stain on the bed there...
Okay, it's a custom content mesh issue, gutterminds!


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After Alexis had left, Winter once again spent the evening with Zuma just hanging out.
They ate and laughed and talked as they usually did, but out of the corner of his eye Winter thought he saw Zuma look at him in a way she never had before...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The following day, Winter and Zuma set out to explore Twinbrook.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Apparently Zuma is just too overcome with the beauty of it all. Either that, or...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Freewill baby...


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
...Sometimes it throws you a curveball.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After their kiss, Winter and Zuma went to the local bistro for a bite to eat.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Zuma's thoughts swirled with conflict- the sum of questions unanswered.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Winter's mind on the other hand spoke like diamonds.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Crystal clear.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic



Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The following morning Winter awoke and had breakfast, looking fiendishly attractive as per usual.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
By this point Winter was approaching the middle of the Young Adult lifestage, so I figured it was time for him to settle down somewhat- get a proper girlfriend yanno? Of course the question then is settle down with who? Well my friends, I have a way of working these things out.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
My oh-so complex plan is this- get Winter, Zuma, and Alexis together, see who he goes for first, and that will be the winner. So, shall we see who he chooses?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
NUHHHHHH! Come on, you really think I'd just be nice and tell you straight off? Nope, you're gonna have to wait til next time to find out.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Suck it, losers ;)

FuryRed said...

I don't know about the next one yet- I'm not gonna have a formal release day like last time, it'll just be when I get round to it. Shouldn't be too long though :)

Freakangel said...

Oh fury u r so friggin funny!!

SummerRaine said...

Yay, your legacy's out! Wonder how long it'll take people to realise that's what this site is? When I clicked the link I thought it was someone else's legacy. :D I don't think I've ever been happier to be wrong.

*stares at Winter* Go for Alexis! >_>

Izziebelle said...

Alexis is kinda hawt ;)

FuryRed said...

Y'see, this is why I don't do polls of any kind... I'm so pulling for Zuma!

She and Winter are meant to beeeeeee. They're both Hopeless Romantics- Alexis is a Flirty little minx *glares* (I do love her though, especially after the trampoline incident).

serenelegacy said...

Ha, that was great! I love legacies, well, as long as they're well written, which a lot of them aren't. Not to fear though Fury, yours are! Alexis is pretteeeeee, but Zuma and Winter are, like, love at first sight. Well at least for Winter, Zuma came a bit around a bit later.

pentameter said...

So happy you decided to turn this into a legacy family! I have very much missed your storytelling. :D

Anonymous said...

Alexis!!

It would be so cool to bring your previous legacy into this one...
And I'm not all that fond of that "other girl"

Lily520 said...

My sim lives in the same house as Winter! Alexis is hawt, but I like Zuma better. Love the new legacy! :D

Anonymous said...

I voted for Zuma:) I wanna see there baby be a kitteh(:

Bukkits said...

Aww Winter's so cute ^.^ Zuma all the way!

Evergreen said...

Loved it!!

Amieezilla said...

Yay! I loved it. :3

Smuzie said...

Woo! That's some epic shizz right there. I kind of want him to end up with Zuma but I wanna see his and Alexis' baby.
But that's messed up...But fun :D

Anonymous said...

Why not have both, like marry Zuma but have an affair with Alexis? Low moral ethics...fun!

alexis365 said...

awesome :) cant wait for more (:

Anonymous said...

awesome! I loved it!!! where did you get zuma's jeans from, I had them on my other comp, I think i got them from the exchange, and now I don't have them.

redhill95843 said...

I've never seen that happen before, the trampoline incident I mean. I had to snicker a bit at it. ^^
Nice, I like the start.
As for who I want to win the poll...truthfully, I like them both. ^^
Alexis is hot, yes, but Zuma is adorable, cute. So, I think both will add a something nice to the gene pool. ^_^

Spychip said...

WOMAGOSHIES.

PIXEL SHADOW!

FuryRed said...

Ahh, Zuma's jeans I also got through the exchange- but I got them from downloading RubytheFuzzled's Ruby and The Grim family if that helps :)


Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone XD

Anonymous said...

Bahahahahaha! Poor Alexis. Actually, poor! That was so damn funny! I'mma thinkin' Zuma. But it would be kind of cool if you married him into the 'family'.

-misty

Anonymous said...

I meant: poor me. Oops.

Anonymous said...

Heh heh. Your funny. :D And pervy. Example, That wasn't the type of bouncing I had in mind.
I laughed and was disgusted off it. :P
XD You always give me a great laugh!

Crazy

Kelle said...

awesome legacy! rofl that repo picture with zuma and winter is priceless!

ItallianSounds said...

Ah Noes! I want Zuma to win, she is very unique yesh indeed.

The little paperclip said...

i voted Zuma, she's cute. purple-haired kitten kids. cute! ooh ooh. you should name one of their children impulse or something (dunno why!)

FuryRed said...

Hmm Impulse, that's pretty good :) I'm gonna be in dire need of kiddie names this time around anyways as I only have two I like thus far and ten generations to go!

Fae said...

Emera?
Rue?

I dunno, for some reason I really love those names! I also like Keagan, for a boy, but it's a bit too plain. Lani is a nice Hawaiian name, but there's something about it that I don't like.

SPONGETTA!

Nah. Cross is a weird name, but I had it in a dream where I was reliving my eighth-grade graduation in a castle...it was weird, but I like the name.

Andy the GraveRobber said...

Aww, I thought it was gonna be a fattacy! Sadface ):

Anyways, I voted for Alexis 'cause she doesn't have a boyfriend. She looks like she was found on street corners, though. But it's Winter's choice, so whatever.

And you could name your Sims after elements in the Periodic Table. Like Gold, Platinum, Uranium, Tiberium, Cortexrulestheworldium and so on. Just an idea so don't kill me!

Rosebud 14 said...

Names
Girl- Sparrow, Lark, Hummingbird, Swan, Flamingo, Robin, Kiwi,
Boy- Eagle, Phoenix, Peacock, Dove, Griffin.

Yes I like birds,but if he has a kid with Zuma I think cats i.e
Puma, Siamese, Leopard, Panther, Burmese ect.

But he should have an affair, I like cats and relatives of SuperFuryred

FuryRed said...

Bahaha, I can just see it now- 'Awww, here's little Chlorine taking her first steps. Next time Sulfur goes to college!' ;D

Fae said...

Hey, Chlorine doesn't sound too bad. Maybe with an 'a', Chlorina, it would be better, but for being named after an element it's not bad.

Anonymous said...

Did you make Winter's house? Or is it in the game?

Westie said...

Ooh name requests.

In boys I rule:

Brighton, Cabel, Valentine

Yes yes yes

Chouxie/Abby said...

I want Alexis to get hit by a meteor.

And when Winter and Zuma have kitteh bebbes, I want one named Mew Mew.

FuryRed said...

I'm loving the names Brighton and Mew Mew ^_^


@Anon: Winter's house is a pre-made one in Twinbrook.

Fae said...

What about Bijou? It's a French name that means Jewel. It can also be spelled Bijoux, which I'm pretty sure is Dutch, and it means Kisses.

I like the name Nessa for a girl. I also like to do differant spellings of common names and pronounce them either normally, or the way they look. For example: Jynafir, Ilessabyth, Allynor, Rossaliy.

Griffith, Xerxes and Eyain are good boy names.

I also made up the name 'Ilystisia'.

AllaraPheonix said...

I votted Alexis, as did A HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE OTHER PEOPLE!!! :O Zom... Am going to try and keep up with this, I'm usually hopeless at reading legacies, coz I feel like they're teasing me, I'm a book reader, I like the whole lot in one go, please :L

AllaraPheonix said...

Oh dear, votted, typo :L

* And as if that's not embarrasing enough, I just typo'd typo... :L TWICE!
