Romantic Interest 1.2

31730031153_4952978880_o

Welcome back to The Nardone Legacy! Last time, we ended off with two vampires who invited themselves over to Chasity’s house and she had just kicked them out. The vampires left without a problem, thankfully. As they were leaving, I noticed this plasma fruit tree starting to sprout. I absolutely love the fact that it pulses.

Also, it was getting rather too close to Chasity’s birthday for comfort, considering she was still childless, unmarried and not anywhere close to meeting her aspiration, which I called a lifetime whim last chapter (what an idiot). I figured that she needed some help with deciding who to go for, and I chose the sim that she rolled the most non-romantic whims for.

Which, thankfully, happened to be Caleb.

32542092965_d6d3db4087_o

That night, Chasity invited Caleb out to the ruins with the dirty pond/pool thing. I planned on them swimming or something and then flirting, but Chasity and Caleb had different ideas.

It was also at this moment that she rolled the wish to ask Caleb to turn her into a vampire.

My day couldn’t get any better.

Even if she never rolled any whims for Caleb or it didn’t work out, she wouldn’t turn into an adult without accomplishing anything! She wouldn’t ever have to age again!

31730029983_0b877a799e_o

Chasity: “Thank you for coming out here with me, Caleb. I really appreciate it.”

Caleb: “No problem, Chasity, I enjoy spending time with you.”

32542091025_08c0a291da_o

Chasity: “So…are you seeing anybody?”

Caleb: “Nope. Oh, by the way, the event ended, so I’m going to be going home now.”

I kid you not. At that exact moment we find out that Caleb is single (and hopefully ready to mingle) the event ended and he took off.

Are.

You.

Kidding.

Me.

31730028473_259d6a732a_o

Alright, so change of plans. They weren’t going to have their first kiss by the bonfire/after swimming, but they were going to kiss, damn it.

I had Chasity invite him out on a date instead, and I had her flirt with him immediately. I wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice, and thankfully, Caleb was definitely into it.

I had them go to a restaurant since I have Dine Out, and they went to a premade restaurant that I plopped down in New Crest named Villa Bovine.

32542089115_c97e78fcb7_o

I wasn’t entirely certain if Caleb could eat human food, but I er, I mean…Chasity decided that we were going to find out. The looks these two give each other make me extremely excited that I had to help Chasity out. I would’ve preferred her to roll the whims for him herself, but sometimes sims need a little push. Besides, if she ever rolls the whim for any other sim, I’d just have them break up. Nothing was set in stone just yet.

31730027413_e5d83ccb43_o

And of course at dinner, in public, was the first time that Caleb had to act like a total vampire.

Chasity: “Um…Caleb…you’re completely reminding me of Vlad right now.”

Caleb: “Bleh, bleh!”

32542087655_56c90fc696_o

In the romance section there was an ‘exchange numbers’ option, so I clicked it and Chasity basically sent Caleb a flirty text. I thought that they had already exchanged numbers, since he’s texted her multiple times before, but oh well. It’s a cute option, regardless. Caleb looked so happy that he got a text message from Chasity.

Caleb: “I will save this in my inbox forever.”

32389500662_67e62f690b_o

Experiment: Success!

Caleb ate human food without a problem! Or, at least, he didn’t seem like he had a problem. I had them both get the nectar/wine/whatever you want to call it because it was the Chef’s Choice and it was pretty cheap. They had a lovely time on their date, earning a silver medal.

32542086205_8a7da6e1c1_o

At the end of the night, the two of them had their first kiss.

32389499562_4549f841d3_o

They are honestly the cutest couple. I’ve never had sims making lovey-dovey eyes at each other before they ever flirted before. I can’t express how much it makes my hopeless romantic heart melt.

32162932410_12298150de_o

Early the next day Caleb sent a text, “I can’t get you out of my mind lately. Wanna go on a date and get some breakfast at The Diving Pelican?” So of course I had her say yes! She was starving anyways, despite eating a rather good meal the night before. After the meal, since she was flirty, I had her passionately kiss Caleb, who seemed to enjoy it.

32389498312_55305c46cc_o

After a while Chasity asked Caleb if he’d like to become her boyfriend, and he enthusiastically agreed.

Nope, I change my mind. It’s set in stone. Even if she rolls whims for other sims I’ll pretend I didn’t see them. These two are absolutely perfect for each other.

32162930010_3aa695e643_o

Chasity also invited Caleb over to her house for a little “couple time”. Look at those lovely stains on the wall…I’d hate to know what that stuff is.

32389496792_84f81d82b9_o

Chasity: “Hey Caleb…why don’t we go upstairs?”

Caleb: “Oh I like the way you are thinking, darling…”

32162928660_63d3613b4a_o

Official-Becoming-A-Couple-Honorary Woohoo.

32389495232_c88733f397_o

I had Chasity ask if Caleb wanted to join the Garden Gnomes so it would give them an excuse to hang out during club gatherings, and he agreed, saying something like he’d “love to join the Garden Gnomes” or something along those lines. Chasity started a club gathering after they woohooed, and they changed into this. I know it’s hard to see, but Caleb’s PJ pants have turned green.

The rest of Caleb’s traits are Foodie and Materialistic. He has also now gotten a job in the Business field, apparently, because when I hovered over his name it said so. Oh, well, okay, good for you, Caleb!

32501049506_2f5a6492ba_o

I figured it was time for an update on Chasity’s garden, which isn’t so little anymore. It’s actually pretty successful, too. She’s evolving a lot of plants and earning more and more simeleons off of it. As you can see, she had about five garlic plants now, and thankfully there haven’t been any more visits from Vlad or any other vampire.

Lucas, the little boy who contacted Chasity about skipping school sent Chasity a text that said, “I heard you and Caleb started dating! Congratulations on landing a new boyfriend!” I’m not entirely certain who informed him on this development…but…thanks kid?

Chasity: “That’s actually really kind of creepy…but nice of him.”

32162926810_02ee703472_o

A few days after they stared dating, Chasity figured it would be smart if she continued to increase her relationship with Caleb’s sister, Lilith, and I had them take a selfie for Chasity’s picture wall.

I had no idea that the game saved all the selfies and pictures of other sims that your sim took. I had quite a lot non-legacy related selfies in my screenshots folder when I went to go edit/sort through all the legacy pictures I had taken. It was quite the surprise.

32389491962_5c5481240e_o

Lilith: “So, Chasity. I heard you are courting my brother. When do you plan to wed?”

Chasity: “Excuse me? Lilith…we just started dating a few days ago.”

Lilith: “As I am aware. When you told me you were an, ah, ‘founder’, I searched it on the internet. As it turns out, most founders find and marry their spouse within a day and become with child immediately. You, however, have neither a spouse nor a child.”

Chasity: “A DAY?! Are you serious? So I’m behind?”

Lilith: “Unfortunately. Fortunately, however, I enjoy you. You make my brother happy. This will be our little secret as well, but he was expecting the ring days ago.”

Chasity: “Oh…”

32162924810_99e29cc1b4_o

Lilith: “Ah, Caleb, you return home from work. The woman you are courting and I were having a pleasant chat.”

Caleb: “I hope you didn’t bring up that founder nonsense to her. I told you to leave it alone.”

Lilith: “Why I would never…”

31698308004_281ab403cd_o

Chasity immediately got up to kiss Caleb.

Lilith: “Ah, yes. This I approve of.”

32162923100_61fd9b7731_o

I don’t really have an excuse for why they woohooed, maybe it was to relieve some of Caleb’s work stress. Either way, they both enjoyed it.

31698306714_a7a4b67403_o

Of course Caleb immediately changed back into his work attire, leaving Chasity to be the only one in her bed outfit. However, that didn’t seem to bug Chasity. No, Chasity was thinking about what Lilith had said. At first, she was startled; maybe even a little hesitant…but now, now it was all she could think of.

She surprised herself by wanting to spend the rest of her life with Caleb. She hadn’t really thought of it before, but after Lilith’s comment…it seemed right.

32162921280_6d274a0dfe_o

Chasity: “Caleb, I love you with all my heart. I’m not quite sure where this ring came from-”

Lilith: “I slipped it in your purse!”

Chasity: “…Ookay….I offer you this ring Lilith slipped in my purse. I’m not really sure how it managed to make its way from my purse to my hands, but will you marry me?”

31698305604_accba10b6c_o

Caleb: “I’m not going to marry you just because my sister pushed you into this…”

Chasity: “Caleb, I want this. It didn’t occur to me until she said something. I know most founders get married day one, but I didn’t roll any whims then. Now, after our first date, you are the only one I roll whims for. Please…marry me.”

32162919260_11f262c55b_o

31698304514_cac5fd5668_o

He said yes.

32389487922_137e104b3e_o

Obligatory-Post-Accepted-Proposal-Woohoo.

31698303194_7df1e22737_o

Caleb: “Lilith, I’m not quite sure how you knew we were done, but Chasity and I are-”

Lilith: “You two are engaged, yes I heard. I was listening in through the door this entire time. I am pleased.”

Chasity seemed to busy looking at Caleb to really hear what Lilith said, though. They both look so happy, look at them!

I love this couple so much.

And nothing says you love each other like sticking your fingers into your new fiancée’s abdomen. Way to go, Caleb, way to go.

32162915670_60b5224b0f_o

Remember how I mentioned Chasity’s wall of photographs? Well here it is! I plan on having her take a selfie each new week I’ve already missed a week or two and so far it’s going great!

That night when I finally had Chasity return back to her small home, one of the vampires last chapter (Rayland) send Chasity a text message congratulating her on her engagement. Whoa, calm down there, buddy! How does everybody know literally what happened five hours after it happens? Who informs these people??

31698302294_f826ee8299_o

The next day Chasity got a text message from Lilith that read, “Heard you got a promotion, congrats! I think lunch at Villa Bovine would be the perfect way to celebrate. You in?”

Uh…Lilith…she didn’t get a promotion…she doesn’t even really have a career…but I had Chasity accept regardless. I should really stop going out to restaurants when people want me to, Chasity’s too broke to keep paying for expensive meals.

32162914320_91197f7912_o

Since they were friends, and I really wanted to know what Lilith thought of Vlad, I had Chasity ask her.

Chasity: “Hey, Lilith, you remember Vlad? The older vampire who complimented my veins based on your advice? What do you think of him?”

31698300954_7754014b0e_o

Lilith: “Who?”

Chasity: “Vladislaus. He’s the one who came back and bit me for revenge for you giving him bad dating advice.”

Lilith: “Never heard of him.”

I couldn’t believe it. In game Lilith honestly had no idea who Vlad was. Who doesn’t know who Vlad is? I thought everyone in Forgotten Hollow knew who Vlad was!

32162912600_e15c097483_o

I, er, I mean, Chasity thought it was perfect time to get a little revenge.

Chasity: “Oh, he’s a very sweet guy. I’ve also heard he’s single. You should hit him up.”

31698299214_bae954f7aa_o

Lilith: “Vladislaus sounds like a catch. I’ll introduce myself when I see him.”

Chasity: “That is an excellent idea.”

Chasity and Lilith had a wonderful time eating, and I soon found out that Lilith couldn’t stomach human food. She immediately threw up after trying to eat it, so instead of allowing her to eat anymore, I had Chasity pay the bill – which was 75 simoleons! – and leave. I figured that Chasity could just fix something up at home, and I made a mental note to not accept anymore of Lilith’s Dine Out proposals.

32419318081_3531f00f07_o

Chasity went home and cooked some food, just for this to happen…

31698298514_3ecec4b7d9_o

32419317531_39de9cab02_o

Chasity: “Oh no, I’m pregnant.”

And that, my friends, is where I shall leave you! I hope you enjoyed, and I’ll see you next time!

The Days That Follow 1.1

32419107711_5d82dcd4ba_o

Welcome back to The Nardone Legacy! Last time we left off, Chasity had gone over to Caleb Vatore’s house, just to find out that he had a vampire sister.

Chasity: “Well…Caleb…you didn’t tell me your sister was going to be here. Or that you had a sister, period.”

32419106591_a905e6c83b_o

It seems like Caleb wants to be more than friends, however; he introduced Chasity to his sister with an arm around her.

Caleb: “Hey, sis, this is that human I was telling you about. You know, the one directly across the street from us. This is Chasity Nardone.”

Lilith: “Caleb, I have told you time and time again that it is utterly atrocious that you are talking like you are from this century. Welcome, Chasity Nardone. I am Lilith Vatore.”

Chasity: “Oh, hello, Lilith.”

32500833476_6d2a5c6eda_o

Chasity: “I’m going to kill you for doing this to me.”

Caleb: “What?”

Chasity: “Oh, nothing. I’m so happy to be here right now. So. Happy.”

Okay, so maybe that wasn’t exactly what happpened, but I could just imagine that happening in my head, just by her facial expression alone. There’s no way she didn’t think it, at least.

32419103851_4dfa890b06_o

Once inside, Chasity asked where the restroom was so she could “check her powder”, and her choice of words got an approving nod from Lilith.

In reality, however, she was just going to go wash her hands twice in a row.

Chasity: “I’m so dead, I’m so dead, why did you have me accept his invitation?”

Look, Chasity…I kind of forgot about his sister from the livestream. They really only focused on Vlad and the Sim Gurus.

Chasity: “Who?”

Oh, it doesn’t really matter, I assume you’ll meet Vlad, at least…eventually…

Chasity: “Great. This is fantastic.”

32500831716_b8be069ac1_o

Like the amazing guest she is, she came to Caleb’s house hungry, and I had to cancel out actions of grabbing/fixing food every several minutes until I decided to say screw it and let her do what she wanted. If she wanted to get kicked out of Caleb’s house for “doing something inappropriate”, she could. I didn’t really care.

Although, to my surprise, Caleb and Lilith could’ve given two craps about her feeding herself. What the two vampires were doing with a fridge stocked full of human food, I’ll never know.

Chasity: “Caleb…it’s really okay. I can fix this myself.”

Caleb: “It’s been so long since I’ve seen anyone use the microwave…in all honesty, I still don’t know what it does completely. I’ll just stand here and watch you.”

Chasity: “Oh, okay. That’s lovely.”

32419101971_be08d06036_o

Chasity is a better person – er, sim, I suppose – than I am. The second the guy who invited me over to his house started playing on his phone and his sister watched me eat, I’d be out of there faster than Caleb and Lilith could run with their vampire speed. It didn’t seem to bother Chasity, though.

Chasity: “I’m used to people watching me eat. Watching my entire existence, actually.”

Aw, c’mon now. You’re making me sound like such a creep.

32500830546_2ce89fe312_o

Lilith: “How do you enjoy Forgotten Hollow so far, Chasity?”

Chasity: “Well…I like the lamposts at night. They look pretty.”

Caleb: *plays on phone* “Oh my plumbob, someone caught Vlad munching on a sim. I thought he was better than that.”

32162693730_2bc4f0a7d8_o

Eventually, however, Chasity got tired of Caleb playing on his phone.

Chasity: “Look, Lilith, I love talking to you and all, but if Caleb continues to play on his phone, I’m gonna burst. He invited me over and all he’s doing is playing on his phone and ignoring his guest.”

32419098981_7f76bb987d_o

Lilith: “Oh, excuse me, Chasity, I appear to have gotten what you call a ‘text message’. How do I reply to one of these? I always get so confused.”

Chasity: “When the hell did Caleb get a book?”

Caleb: “What do you mean? I’ve had it this entire time.”

Chasity: “No you-oh, whatever. I’ll just stare at your chandelier then.”

32162692510_8709b9f78b_o

Chasity did seem to like Lilith, though. Whenever they would get done talking, she’d always give her this smile. Although, since Chasity is Cheerful, she seems to like everyone. I should’ve given her the Outgoing trait, seeing as she always rolls whims to talk to people, hug people, meet people, etc etc.

Lilith: “I enjoy this human, Caleb. I normally do not find them as enjoyable as this one. You should court her so she can become part of our coven.”

Chasity: “Oh, um…”

Soon after this, I noticed it was like four or so in the morning so I sent Chasity home for some sleep.

32419096701_c0f877a96e_o

In the following days I had Chasity go around Forgotten Hollow collecting items she could either sell or plant. The scenery around Forgotten Hollow is absolutely beautiful, it makes a great location for some pictures.

Speaking of pictures, the pictures for the legacy are the only pictures I’ve taken in any of my sims saves, and I have to admit, I love it. It is a lot more enjoyable than I thought it was going to be, and the pictures turn out really pretty. At least, after I play around with the angles and stuff for a bit. I do apologize if the early pictures aren’t amazing, I will get better and learn more in time.

32162691360_79c2ec1f90_o

I think these were the Wolfsbane flower I had her pick up once I could harvest them. They’re actually very pretty, and they’d make a stunning addition to Chasity’s small little garden she’s growing.

So far I’m very pleased with this game pack, even though I’m only a few sim days into it.

32419093381_8a3754ae9f_o

There is the Sixam Fly trap thing, which I thought was super cool. I didn’t have any pictures of Chasity harvesting it because it wasn’t ready, but I felt I needed to include it because it’s new and it’s different. The second Chasity can harvest this thing, you bet she’s going to. I can’t wait until she’s able to plant it in her own garden.

32162689870_02f0de47be_o

I also had her go fishing some more, just because I figured it would be a good idea. She actually caught a batfish or vampirefish, (I cannot remember which it was and I didn’t write the name down and my memory is horrid), but it ended up being a pretty good fish to sell. I believe it was over a hundred simoleons. She even caught it on a lower skill level, which was fantastic! I figured something like that would either require bait or a higher level…thankfully it didn’t.

At this point I believe we have a thousand simoleons, which isn’t the greatest, but it isn’t the worst, either.

32419090961_a13f129775_o

I apologize if the night shots are hard to see, when I was resizing the pictures on my desktop they didn’t seem so dark, but on my laptop the glare is horrid and I can’t really make out what the pictures are so I apologize deeply. I’ll keep this in mind for the future.

On the third of fourth night a sim by the name of Shelby Ewing appeared at like midnight or something, ringing the doorbell. After looking at the time, I figured he had to be a vampire, but I wasn’t expecting him to be an elder!

I feel like the vampires should be young adults or just adults, but okay, I can roll with an elder vampire.

32162689090_5d604e78f9_o

I decided to wake Chasity to go and greet the man, because why not? Isn’t this why I purchased vampires? Besides, anyone could be a potential spouse – even an elder vampire.

Chasity: “Hi! My name is Chasity.”

Shelby: “Hello, Chasity, I’m Shelby. Your veins look spectacular…”

Chasity: “Well, that’s a new one. Not even Caleb or Lilith said that, but thank you, I think.”

32419089141_09a9d1de12_o

Shelby: “I heard that you are new to Forgotten Hollow, and I decided to stop by and drink-oops, did I say drink? I meant introduce myself.”

Chasity: “Oh, well…that’s…nice of you…”

32162688170_39c50851ab_o

Chasity decided that it was time to go back to sleep, and I figured he’d leave on his own, but instead he spread his arms out and…

32419087311_6385270434_o

…turned into a bat.

32162687300_56ac74c256_o

He decided to turn into a bat just to appear several feet inside the house. Buddy…you could’ve walked…it’s okay…

I thought the bat was interesting, but it was kind of a let down…turning into a bat was used as teleportation, basically. For some reason I had it in my head that they would turn into the bat and literally fly as a bat visibly across the map at all times to wherever they were going, not turn into a bat and literally fly into the sky and appear in a cloud of mist. Oh well.

32419085501_851903bb22_o

Of course, if you can make it out in the picture, Vladislaus Straud appeared at the door while Shelby was inside. Two vampires?! I didn’t think the game would send two of them on the same night!

Right before Vladislaus knocked on the door, Chasity got a text message that read, “Hello there. I just wanted to welcome you to the community and…my that’s a lovely neck you have there.”

That is literally the creepiest thing he could’ve said. That message alone basically tells you to stay away from Vlad.

So, naturally, that’s what I did, right?

Haaa. Nope. You really expect me, the simmer who gave their potential vampire the Loves Outdoors trait, to stay inside?

Pfft.

32162686620_a3af2837f0_o

Chasity: “Hello! I am Chasity. I got your text message…I’m not quite sure how you got my number, though.”

Vlad: “Greetings, Chasity.”

32419083481_cb540c6ce9_o

Chasity: “Look, I’m sure you’re a swell guy, but-no, Vlad, this is my phone. You can’t have it, and you can’t just text me and tell me my veins look nice. That is beyond creepy.”

Vlad: “Lilith told me you would find it absolutely flattering…”

Chasity: “Well Lilith is full of surprises, isn’t she? That is not the way to get the girl.”

32162685870_bfba65f577_o

Vlad, who was so upset by Lilith’s messed up dating advice, he kicked over Chasity’s garbage can.

Vlad: “That is the last time I listen to a word Lilith says…”

32419081711_09db79c7e9_o

Chasity: “I understand that you are upset, but you can’t just go kicking over trashcans, either. It’s very late. Please, I think it’s time for you to leave.”

Vlad: “You are rejecting Vladislaus Straud! You will rue this day!”

This is this first time I’ve seen a vampire hiss. Does Vlad have the weakness that makes him hiss in social situations? I’m not quite sure…but I thought it was funny. He must think he is the coolest vampire of all time to do something so ridiculous like this.

32389234392_b16d4f7c40_o

After a while of gardening, Chasity was finally able to evolve some plants! The higher quality the plants, the more income she has. We just recently had to pay bills which were about 400 some simoleons, which wasn’t too too bad, but it still drained most of the money we had. I also had her buy more seeds and scavenge some more to find new plants to plant. I’ve never really played with gardening before, and I actually enjoy it quite a bit. I especially enjoy not having to wait for her to return from work every day.

31698088934_ac189b11ae_o

In the middle of gardening, Chasity got a message from the blonde in the picture (Clara?) that read, “Hey Chasity! We’d love to have you join Powerhouse. What do you think?” 

So, of course, I had her join Powerhouse because why not? I doubt we’ll ever see Powerhouse after this initial meeting, though, but it gives me an excuse to leave the neighborhood and go to Windenburg.

32389232652_2ab246e630_o

Immediately I had Chasity go talk with Paolo, who could potentially be a spouse. Usually I let the sims choose their spouses based on their whims for other sims, but Chasity hadn’t rolled any whims for anybody yet in a romantic way, so I figured it was time to meet more sims, which was another reason why I joined the Powerhouse. I knew that there were single sims in the club, and if not, there would have to be some single sims at the gym.

Chasity really should’ve been an Outgoing sim with how much she gets along with everyone. And, to no surprise, Paolo and Chasity got along pretty well.

31698087214_7402046b33_o

Chasity: “So…I’m a founder in a legacy and I was wondering if you’d maybe want to be my spouse?”

Paolo: “A what? A spouse for a what? Legacy? What’s that? What’s a founder? It sounds kind of like a joke.”

Chasity: “Nevermind, I’m not rolling any whims for you yet. We’ll see in a couple of days.”

32389230582_e490f8b7d1_o

Since we were at the gym, I figured we might as well have her workout. I had her kick off ask the blonde from earlier (I’m so convinced her name is Clara but I’m not 100% sure) to get off of the treadmill so Chasity could use it. The second she did that, I realized that Don Lothario was next to her.

31698086234_b7da300d70_o

I’d rather her not marry Lothario, but I figured if she really wanted to, I’d let her. So, I had her introduce herself. After a while, though, I couldn’t tell if he was looking at Chasity or Bella Goth in the background.

Don: “Holy plumbob, look at that butt…”

Chasity: “Excuse me?”

Don: “Oh shoot, sorry, what were you saying? I got…distracted.”

Please oh please, Chasity, don’t roll any whims for him.

32389228582_052a6e5fa7_o

Once she got back from the Powerhouse club outing, I had her take a quick jog through Forgotten Hollow. She didn’t seem to mind it, and I got a pretty good screenshot of Vlad’s graveyard.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the last workout picture of the entire legacy, to be honest. My sims are just like me – lazy and forgetful.

31698084904_cfc19bea8c_o

Speaking of that devil Vladislaus…

32389226732_906d8efdb3_o

When Chasity was sound asleep in her bed, some creepy music came on and there appeared Vlad, who started doing the “creepy” walking style. Confused, I had no idea what he was doing here…

31698083994_6b0f0cd6a6_o

…and then he walked into the house unannounced.

That made me even more confused. What the hell was he doing?

Vlad: “I warned you…”

32389225542_e2e845b3e4_o

It took me a few minutes of gazing at him to realize that he was here to suck Chasity’s blood!

I remember the Sim Gurus on the Vampires livestream saying that if you had a human sim and they didn’t have garlic around their house/on their person they might get a few “visits” from vampires, but honestly, I thought they were over-exaggerating to hype the pack. I didn’t realize that vampires would literally show up in the middle of the night to drink your sims’ blood!

Vlad: “…you will rue the day you rejected Vladislaus Straud.”

31698083384_2d63309560_o

Chasity: “Wh…what is…going…on…?”

32389224322_0f818024fa_o

Vlad turned into his dark form right in front of Chasity, who was too mesmerized by vampire magic to care. Jeez though, his teeth are creepy.

31698082474_80bb203f5f_o

He began to drink her blood for what seemed like years, which in reality was only a few sim hours. Every time he pulled back I expected him to be done drinking, but he’d always go back for more.

32389222732_b7beab0ef5_o

Look at the puncture marks!! That is the coolest thing I have ever seen in the sims game. I absolutely love that the marks are there.

Vlad: “I’m stuffed! Couldn’t drink another bite! I won’t turn her, but Chasity’s so delicious it would take a LOT of garlic to keep me away next time! I’ll be back when I crave another midnight snack.”

31698081574_9744171f95_o

After he was done with his drink, she immediately passed out. Looks like we have to invest in some garlic!

32389221302_965bcb6ede_o

Sporting her bite mark the next morning, I had Chasity gather the garlic from around Caleb’s house because it was free. If I bought garlic seeds outright it would cost a 100 simoleons! At this point, we didn’t have that kind of money.

31698080244_c0de499259_o

I think that the bite mark is the coolest thing in this game up to date. Or, at least, the coolest thing with the new pack. I was always saddened that the Sims 3 never had bite marks, but then again, I think it was harder to bite sims in the Sims 3 versus Sims 4.

Seeing those bite marks makes me want to play a vampire more and more, and the more time goes on, the more I really want to turn Chasity, but we’ll leave that decision up to her.

32389219422_63aa4b257e_o

Caleb sent me at text that said something like “hey it’s cool that you’re friends with Moira” and I figured, hey, it’s been a while since we’ve seen Caleb, we’ll go over to his house.

Caleb: “Oh plumbob! What happened to your neck?!”

Chasity: “Oh, that. Yeah…Vlad Straud came and took a nice bite out of my neck. I have the bite mark and the nice negative moodlet to prove it and everything.”

Caleb: “Nobody should feed on mortals! That’s absolutely horrifying that he’d do such a thing. I’ll fight him for your honor.”

Chasity: “Caleb, really, it’s fine. I planted a bunch of garlic in my front lawn, I think that’ll keep him away.”

31698079184_e6f6f699d7_o

Of course since we were there, I figured I’d have Chasity work on her relationship with Lilith, despite the fact that Lilith gave Vlad bad romance advice (probably on purpose since she wants Caleb and Chasity to be a thing).

Lilith: “Chasity! Which vampire marked your flesh?”

Chasity: “Your friend Vladi…you know what? I can’t pronounce his first name.”

That makes two of us. No matter how long I stare at the name Vladislaus, I cannot figure out how to pronounce it.

Caleb: “I’ll text him right now and challenge him to a vampiric duel.”

32389216942_23d106f322_o

Chasity still hasn’t rolled any whims for anybody just yet, but she and Caleb keep sharing these looks that I can’t help but hope she rolls whims for Caleb. Look at them!

31698077744_b5b1f21051_o

Lilith: “Honestly, brother? Did you absolutely have to stand in the middle of our conversation? Chasity and I were discussing Vladislaus. I am absolutely horrified he took it this far.”

Caleb: “I hear words coming out of your mouth, but I just don’t really care.”

Look at them…look at that look. You cannot tell me that there are going to be no whims rolled for this man.

32389215312_a9b5313c2a_o

Chasity apparently got tired of staring at Caleb, because after a little bit of staring at each other she promptly sat down and decided that playing the organ was more important.

Chasity: “I want one of these.”

You are too broke for it.

31698076334_67420695ba_o

Chasity has a wall in her house specifically for photos she takes and she went to go take a picture of Lilith when Caleb decided that being a dirtbag was more fun and stood in front of the camera.

Caleb: “Do you have an excellent view of my backside, Chasity?”

Lilith: “Brother…I will kill you one of these days while you hibernate.”

32389214062_4a8c57f0d9_o

LOOK AT THEM THOUGH!!

Caleb: “…Chasity…”

Okay, okay…I’m done.

31698074334_a6d9306b27_o

Okay, for real this time, this is the last picture I’ll fawn over them.

31729750763_4d04a6017a_o

“Let’s ditch school and go play hooky somewhere!” says the kid we met once or twice. He’s from the Garden Gnomes. Well, after a while, you can see their friendship improved so much that Chasity could kiss his cheek. I know I’ve seen that action before in my other save files, but I didn’t know you could kiss random sims who weren’t even related to you. I suppose anything is possible once the friendship is high enough.

…This could be considered really creepy if Chasity wasn’t such a nice sim who tried to become friends with literally everyone.

31698071714_e92ecf2e0f_o

Again, back to the grind we go! This time I sent her to Oasis Springs to hopefully find some more plants I could harvest for her lifetime whim (wish? Want? What is it called in this game?)*, but unfortunately nothing was harvestable. We’re so close to being able to graft items in the gardening skill, and I happen to know that the last step of her lifetime whim* is to grow a cowplant, so I have to either fish the seed out of the water or graft it.

Knowing my luck, grafting it is.

*it’s actually called an aspiration…

31729748603_3334cfaa26_o

Back in Forgotten Hollow we found the very first plasma fruit tree I’ve seen in this game. I figured that even if she didn’t become a vampire, she could sell the fruit for simoleons, so I had her harvest it.

31698069024_4b02a9162b_o

When she arrived back at her house it was late, and there was another suspected vampire knocking at her door. His name was Rayland Power, and he was also a young adult. She still wasn’t rolling whims for any potential spouses, so I had her greet him.

I thought that once you planted garlic the vampires would stop visiting, but apparently that was false. I either need more garlic or the game is glitched.

31729746783_097b9f18f4_o

Later on that exact same night, another vampire named Bret Christy came and knocked on the door.

31698067174_7ae3a524b0_o

Chasity: “This is ridiculous. I don’t need all these vampires here while I’m trying to eat some food.”

Bret: “I will fight you, man, for this human right here.”

Rayland: “But…I don’t want to fight…”

Chasity: “That’s it, everyone out.”

And that is where I will leave you! I hope that longer chapters like this one is okay, because I take way too many pictures and I have such a hard time trying to figure out which pictures to cut. Until next time!

Meet the Founder 1.0

31697599484_1053aa917f_o

Hello and welcome to The Nardone Legacy! I was getting bored with my usual play style for the Sims 4 so I decided I needed to switch things up. After purchasing the Sims 4 Vampires Game Pack, I figured this was a good time to start a legacy. This is the first Sims 4 legacy I’ve attempted to document, and the first time playing with the Vampires Game Pack.

I plan on following most of the regular legacy challenge rules, and I decided to have a few succession laws. The Gender Law I chose is Strict Equality, the Bloodline one is Modern, Heir law is Random, and the Species Law is Tolerant. Also, the heirs will all have the same tattoo that the founder has, just for extra giggles. If you would like anymore information, please view the About the Legacy page.

Alright! Now on with the show!

This is our founder, Miss Chasity Nardone, a young adult who is brand new to Forgotten Hollow. She is Cheerful, Loves the Outdoors, a Perfectionist and has the Freelance Botanist Aspiration which comes with the Collector trait.

32162224880_9ccca33c66_o

The first thing I had Chasity do on her brand new lot was buy and plant some seeds because I want the founder and every heir after them to complete at least their first aspiration. As you can see there are a few sparkles above her head due to the lot traits. Chasity’s house has only two lot traits. I left the original lot trait, the new Registered Vampire Lair trait because I either want to turn Chasity into a vampire at some point or earn money from the free items they send us. Using that to my advantage is probably cheating somewhere, but since I didn’t see it, I will use all the help I can get.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why give her the Love Outdoors trait if you want to turn her into a vampire? The answer is pretty simple, actually. I thought it would be interesting. A potential vampire that loves being outdoors but is cursed to walk only the night? The internal struggle that would cause…the drama…

I’m evil.

I did it because I’m evil.

The last lot trait I chose was Homey because it helped build the gardening skill faster. Hey, as I said earlier, I will use all the help I can get.

31697601084_9bed7c9f69_o

This house was the only one she could afford in the new neighborhood, and I thought it was absolutely perfect. It’s beat up, run down, and the lot is big enough for expansion…assuming the game doesn’t glitch up and make me move.

Before we get any further, let me warn you ahead of time; I suck at building in the Sims. Now I know a lot of people say that, but I’m so uncreative when it comes to building that it hurts. Whenever I look at my creations, it physically hurts me. So, due to my horrid building skills, I had her move into the cheapest premade house.

Besides, I really like the worn-down look of this house.

32162227100_0606bec8b9_o

In my game, nothing works correctly. The Neighborhood Welcoming Committee never stops by to give the sims free fruitcake and interact with them, so I’ve grown used to having to scout the neighborhood for sims that I can greet on my own. The first sim I came across was Moira Fyres (or something like that), which is great, because I planned on having Chasity join the Garden Gnomes.

Chasity: “Hi! I’m Chasity, I’m new to the neighborhood.”

Moira: “Hi, that’s great and all, but what is that freak doing at your house?”

Chasity: “Huh?”

31697603044_a4837cdea5_o

Of course this is the one time that the Neighborhood Welcoming Committee decides to show up, even if it only contained one guy. I remember seeing screenshots of this guy, – or was he featured in the official livestream?  – and when I saw him, I nearly squealed. A vampire! This is the first vampire I’ve come across in game, and one of the potential goals was to turn Chasity, so this was absolutely perfect. His name is Caleb Vatore, and surprisingly, he didn’t burn in the sun, probably due to a vampire power.

32162228610_7963b4ab75_o

Chasity: “Hi! My name is-”

Caleb: “I know what your name is. It’s Chasity.”

Chasity: “H…how did you know that? Did you read my mind?! That is so cool!”

Caleb: “…No. I watched you paint your name on the mailbox before I was forced to come greet you by the unknown forces. I don’t even have the mind reading power, if there is one.”

Chasity: “…Oh. That’s disappointing. Well, come in I guess.”

31697604584_d389b8a0f7_o

Whenever Chasity tried to interact with him he always made a face, and he didn’t even bring any fruitcake…the cheapo.

Caleb: “Vampire, remember? I need plasma, not normal sim food.”

Whatever. I doubt you even have that weakness.

32162229390_1fd518f25e_o

He might not have been a fan of Chasity, but Chasity was definitely a fan of him.

Chasity: “Hehehe…a vampire…and he’s all mine…”

Alright girl, calm down there. We met him about five seconds ago. Even if he does have some pretty sick hair and an earring, you have to control yourself.

31697605734_d618e72ae7_o

So the two of them ended up getting along pretty well after all, and their relationship built up pretty fast. This was probably one of the fastest forming friendships I’d had in the game. During their talk, Chasity and I found out that Caleb was unemployed and Ambitious, which I don’t really see how that makes any sense, but I’ll just roll with it.

Speaking of jobs, Chasity doesn’t have a “real” job either, in the sense. She’s going to take care of her garden and that’s how she’s going to earn her money. That’s also another reason why I had her keep the new vampire lot trait. Gardening, at least when you first start out, is a horrid way to earn money, so those unneeded blood bags will definitely come in handy.

I see unpaid bills in our future.

32162230450_1ee4e86869_o

Look at that! Caleb also has fangs outside of his dark form. I think that’s so cool.

31697606944_1f11d1dc76_o

After a while of talking, the temptation became to great and I, *ahem* I mean Chasity couldn’t resist making a vampire pun.

Chasity: “Did you see the end of the vampire video game tournament? They were neck and neck!

Caleb: “…Did…did you really just say that to me?”

32162231430_fe9630fb28_o

Caleb: “Disgusting.”

31697607724_6e8bc310bb_o

Apparently he didn’t think the pun was that awful, however, because he eventually smiled.

32162232330_8a4c1fd46e_o

And then he decided that chatting online or whatever was more important than talking to Chasity.

How rude.

Chasity, however, didn’t seem to mind that much.

31697609174_2ab2056918_o

Eventually Caleb decided it was time to leave, saying that, “We’re so lucky to have such great neighbors like you!” which I thought was kinda cute. I’ve never had that said about a sim before.

After he left, Chasity had a whim to send a happy text. I had her send it to Moira, because I wanted them to be friends. Moira responded with something that basically said “hey let’s hang out” so off Chasity went. Moira chose one of the coffee shops, and since Chasity was hungry, I had her order a croissant.

Moira: “When is your croissant going to be ready? I’m going to steal it before you can have a chance to grab it.”

32162234050_15bdd023c4_o

After ordering her coffee, Moira sat at a different table with other people and forced Chasity to remain by herself, with her phone as her only company.

Good thing I’m going to have Chasity steal her club right out from under her, er, I mean, have Chasity be understanding and want to join the club anyways.

31697610334_4571860c65_o

After the event ended, I had Chasity return home and serve a group serving of chili beans, I believe, so she could store them in her fridge and eat from them for several days.

32162235400_bddb993979_o

The Vampire Council ended up sending two unneeded blood bags, which I promptly sold for simoleons.

31697612914_8f1d128462_o

Chasity: “Um…I don’t think those beans agreed with me…”

Since that was the first time I had any of my sims eat the chili beans, this was the first sim fart I had ever experienced due to eating. I had absolutely no idea that the sims could fart after having beans. She was gassy quite a bit throughout the day.

Chasity: “Shut up! You don’t have to tell them that!”

32162236520_85576804cd_o

After a day of dragging my feet, I had Chasity finally join the Garden Gnomes. Apparently they’re required to wear something green, because Chasity immediately changed into this outfit once she arrived there. Her skirt was originally black, and I have to say, I’m not a fan of the kind of green the game chose for her, but it is what it is.

Chasity: “Um, little boy…shouldn’t you be in school?”

Little boy: “Nah, ditching is what all the cool kids do. Especially for a garden club.”

31697616184_9b994f8048_o

This guy wandered onto the lot soon after Chasity and the Garden Gnomes arrived, and I had her go introduce herself because his hair was rather…interesting…and you never know, he could be a potential spouse.

Chasity: “My name is Chasity!”

Guy: “Mine is Anthony Dawkins, not that it really matters, because I doubt I’ll ever get featured in this legacy ever again.”

That’s probably true, but the generation is just starting, so you never know.

32388807752_67b9153c5a_o

After talking with Anthony a bit, I had her go over and fish with the rest of her club. I figured getting her fishing skill up and selling the fish she caught wouldn’t be harmful. Besides, it was additional simoleons. Who says no to more simoleons?

31697619394_a60e287998_o

Chasity: “See, Anthony! You were featured again!”

Anthony: “I know…it’s surprising…but watch this be my last appearance.”

Chasity: “Well…I was going to say something but no, no, you’re probably right. Unless you become my children’s father, then you’ll have to be featured.”

Anthony: “Um…I think I’ll pass.”

Chasity: “Thought so.”

They actually got along rather nicely, though, so if Chasity doesn’t find another spouse, she might have to go with mohawk guy here.

32388809612_5e99d4227d_o

Chasity wanted to become friends with Moira to figure out her weaknesses and exploit them because she was a nice sim. Stargazing was the easiest way to gain friendship with her, and I’m all for the easier route.

Soon after this, Chasity gets a text from Caleb that goes, “Caleb Vatore is wondering if I want to go over to his house and hang out.” So, naturally, since it’s been a day since she’s seen her closest friend, I said why not.

31697621954_f5e42c93ae_o

Although I wasn’t expecting Caleb’s sister, Lilith, to be there as well. Did I mention he had a sister? Well, I didn’t know that either until I remembered hearing about her on the Vampires livestream, I think it was. And also, get this.

She was also a vampire.

So, essentially, that makes Chasity the only human sim between the three of them. Two vampires to one human sim…the odds don’t look very good. Be prepared to be eaten alive, Chasity.

32388811462_6653ed75bd_o

“Well…plumbob. I’m screwed.”

And that, my friends, is where I shall leave you! I played through almost half of the first generation the day I installed Vampires, so there should be a healthy amount of chapters to post every week (or maybe twice a week) until we catch up to where I am in the game. I hope you liked the introductory chapter to the legacy! Until next time!
