Finally, I am posting the last of my Gorey Legacy pictures. Alas, they are all gone. ALAS! Nothing could be saved when my previous hard drive crashed and burned. But here, enjoy some images from the past of Sims that will never be seen again!



Embley and Breanna, calmly discussing whether they should maybe woohoo or not. Stick two lesbian Knowledge Sims together and they aren't really going to light the world on fire with their passion, know what I'm sayin'?

And that's all that's left. It's still kind of sad that they're all gone.

I've been playing a bit with my new founder, Epitwee Gorey (Friedrich's long lost cousin, I've decided) and she's been fun so far. I also started a Rainbow Legacy challenge, with Alizarin Polychrome. (Unlike most Rainbow Challenges, I'm actually doing the rainbow in correct ROY G. BIV order, so I am starting with red.) I still have to track down my Photoshop install disk though, I can't do any editing on my screenshots yet at all. Which is frustrating. But hey, eventually I'll be able to update those legacies? One hopes?

Anyway, here's a couple of completely un-Photoshopped preview pictures of my two new founders for the new challenges I'm doing. In a cut again, because they might be big.

Anyway, they're both pretty fun so far. I'm looking forward to getting the pictures ready and doing new updates. I miss talking about my Sims.
doronjosima: (nerd)
I still had some snaps uploaded to my Photobucket site that I hadn't gotten to yet; hence we have an update of lost Sims left for your reading enjoyment. It's enjoyment that will be tempered with sadness though, since not one of these Sims survived the Massive Hard Drive Meltdown of Doom. Alas!



Let's start with some cute toddler spam, since that's cheerful. Zillah is all about the activity table. Dozens and dozens more pictures under the cut...

Read more... )

That's all for now. There's one more batch of pictures left to do, and then this iteration of the Goreys will disappear into the big Sim-Bin in the sky. I've got a new Gorey Legacy founder made up, and have started playing her story (Epitwee Gorey, a long-lost distant cousin of Friedrich Gorey...), so she will get her time to shine once this is finished up.

I'm still kind of peeved that my hard drive was unsalvageable, but what can you do? Just have to move on! Thanks for reading, as always.
doronjosima: (love)
Missed my usual Sunday updates a couple of times there. Alas! This Wednesday update will have to hold people, since it's doubtful if I can get to an update this coming Sunday. It's a busy week!



We'll start this update with Hobart getting promoted! He's now a CEO, at the top of the Business career track! Also, this puts him perma-platinum.

Read more... )

That's all for this update. Not terribly long, but I wanted to at least get something up since I'm trying to maintain a good update schedule. I'm leaning towards Dawbis so far as the Generation 3 heir, but who knows, with Zillah and Fetus #2 in the mix now. Plus, who knows who will impress me in college. (It's not that I dislike Snedleigh, he's just... kinda... there.) ^_^ As always, thanks for reading!
doronjosima: (nerd)
Another Sunday, another Gorey update! Last time, Friedrich, our illustrious founder died immediately after moving into a new less-buggy house on a new less-buggy lot. Breanna got fired from her dream job in the Journalism career and Epergne attempted to throw her mack down on a few random guys, though she was blocked in her attempts by her live-in boy toy Hobart.



Epergne often forgets she is a Romance Sim, and interacts with her nephews frequently. Or, maybe she's feeling extra maternal due to her pregnancy.

Read more... )

And that's enough for now. Not a massive update, but an update. Three in three weeks, shoot, I don't even know how I am doing it!

As always, thanks for reading!
doronjosima: (Default)
Updates a mere week or so apart? How is this possible? ;D

When we last left the Goreys, Friedrich's wife Naenae had just died. Also, their house had just started glitching and being impossible to load. So, they loaded up all their rare items (gravestones, heir portraits, aspiration rewards) and moved to Beverly, Hills that is. No wait, that's the Beverly Hillbillies. These guys just moved across town in Veronaville, into a new house I built for them.



Everyone milling about in front of the new place, which is much taller than the old one.

Read more... )

And that's all for now. Sorry most of this update was house spam, but hey, there was some excitement at the end there, huh? I'm really going to miss Friedrich and Naenae.

As always, thanks for reading.
doronjosima: (flex)
So, uh, I haven't updated since July. To my credit, I was in the middle of a move... but now that we are moved in and I have internets again, things won't be so hectic and maybe I can update more frequently...? Maybe? Oh, who am I kidding....

Anyway, it's Gorey time! Yes, it's everyone's favorite goofball goth family! Okay, maybe not everyone's, but certainly mine.



We start with Epergne trying to put the moves on the guy who came home from work with her mom.

Epergne: You could pestle my mortar, if you know what I mean! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more!

Epergne isn't the best Romance Sim ever, sadly.

Immediately after this life-shattering event happened, my game started glitching a ridiculous amount. The lot wouldn't load, or it would load and then crash a lot. I tested all my CC, I used the Batman Box from MATY, nothing worked. Thus, the Goreys packed up their irreplaceable items into their inventories and moved to a new lot and new house I built for them. I think my game just can't handle the traditional 5x5 lots required in Legacy Challenge rules. Next time, it's more Goreys in their all new house!

As always, thanks for reading.

.... So it's been a month since my last update. I don't even have the excuse that I'm playing Sims 3, either. No, I am just lame about updating. I've played ahead a good bit, too, just haven't had time to get the pics ready/posted/commented on. Lord, am I slow.

Anyway! Enough whining! GOREYS, NOW.



We start with Breanna serenading Embley. In the bathroom. What is with my Sims and romantic gestures in bathrooms?! They're still in love after two children though, which is kind of nice.

Read more... )

And that's all of that for now. I have more to come, if I can just get it ready. Let's hope it doesn't take a month!
doronjosima: (nerd)
Sick at home on my day off, so what better to do than update my Goreys? I know it's already passe to play Sims 2, but I have so much left to do in the game, I will be in it for the long haul. Besides, I finally just got the Goreys into a new working household again; their last lot was buggy and had become unplayable. But that's for future updates! I still have this backlog!



Grandparents are good for teaching skills to toddlers. Friedrich really adores his grandsons, despite their unholy conception from two women. Also, TEACHING THE BABY WITH THE WOLF IS PROBABLY A BAD IDEA. Knowledge sims, I swear.

Read more... )

That's all for now. Thanks again for reading!

Wow, guess all that picture uploading I did doesn't help a whit if I never bother to post another update, does it? Good job, me! To be fair, work has been a bear lately, and I'm getting ready to go to A-Kon, the big local anime convention at the end of this month. So, busy, busy times. But WHO CARES, right? Does that get you Goreys? It DOES NOT. So, here they come!

When we last left off, Embley was frozen in the middle of labor. Thank goodness it didn't actually take her a month to give birth.



It's a baby boy! The Big Book of Edward Gorey Baby Names (aka, my Sims notebook) is consulted, and he is given the name Dawbis! He has Breanna's coloring.

Read more... )

A short update this time, alas. But I have more to work on, when I get the chance. Next time, more toddler picspam, more of Epergne's utter failure as a Romance Sim, and more general Gorey-ness. Thanks for reading!
doronjosima: (flex)
It's a truly never-ending saga of non-heirs! Jeezum crow, I am never letting anyone have six kids again, seriously. It's wreaking havoc on my OCD need to see them all have kids. Oh yeah, and my OCD need to keep them all around the same age. What is WRONG with me?!

Anyway, we start this time with Anthony & Rosemarie Varma's little family.



That would be baby Rob, attempting to flood the downstairs with toilet water. I am grateful they don't have a maid, because she'd hate the toddler.

Read more... )

And that's all for this mini-update! I haven't had a lot of time to play lately, but I am just itching to do so. And soon, soon all the Rosales-Varma siblings will have their babies grown into children so I can return to the main house and the actual heirs, Rosales and Bindi! Hooray! I also can't wait to play the Gorey Legacy to see how they deal with Free Time.
doronjosima: (evilboomfreeka)
More Adventures of Non-Heirs, as I try to keep all the progeny of Generation 3 around the same age so I don't get confused later...



We start with Amin Varma toilet training little Beniboom. This would be because Boomfreeka can't be bothered to mother her son. She's a famous actress, after all!

Read more... )

That's all for now- more to come as I get more pictures sorted and prepared. As always, thanks for reading and comments are always appreciated.
doronjosima: (Default)
It's more Adventures of Non-Heirs, simply for the benefit of genetic experimentation!



We start off at Alfred & Shea Varma's place. The two have done their baby-making duty, so of course that means Alfred has to greet the welcoming committee in his skivvies. Again, Stubbly Jones and Lilly Varma are present.

Read more... )

That's all for now, there will be more coming as I get more picture sorted. And yes, hopefully I will soon return to the actual heirs of this family! ^_^
doronjosima: (gnomewarlock)
Yet more of this terribly exciting domestic saga. Things get a bit disjointed here and there, as I found I could not leave well enough alone, and just had to see how all the *other* non-heir genetics would work out. Hopefully, I can make it all make sense, but with six children in generation three of the Rosales-Varma clan, it's kind of a lot to keep track of.



We start with Alfred Varma and his husband Shea. Shea is also suffering from involuntary skin-bleaching brought on by my new default skins. It doesn't change how they feel about each other though...

Read more... )

That's all for this update! I have more screenies to process and sort, so hopefully I can get more done. I just wish I could stop obsessively playing every couple in this generation. It's a sickness, I tell ya! Thank you for reading.
doronjosima: (flex)
Finally have had a chance to sort my screenies, and thus a new update is born! Last time, Hortense and Rosales Varma had a daughter, who they named Agnes. Nancy Varma got pregnant by Bindi (omg hax), and Banjari and Froog continued to be Very Very Old.



We start with Nancy demonstrating the phenomenon known as the "pop".

Read more... )

Anyway, that's all for now! More to come as I get more screenies sorted and prepped. Thanks for reading!
doronjosima: (smooch)
This chapter is chock-a-block with love and marriage.

We start with Anthony, getting his whammy from his wish- a Romance sim, getting engaged? Preposterous!



Out of all the babes he's bagged, Rosemarie seems the nicest, so she gets the engagement ring.

Read more... )

More to come. I hope the pictures aren't too big, I set the game camera defaults slightly higher and liked the results.
doronjosima: (Default)
This update is MASSIVE. Seriously, it's quite large, because I wanted to get huge hunks of college out of the way. (Four Rosales-Varmas in college was just insane.) But first, Rosales/Hortense honeymoon spam.



Rosales and Hortense finally leave their hotel room to dance on the beach.

Read more... )

And that's all for now. Whew, what a lot of pictures.
doronjosima: (flex)


This entry starts with a catfight breaking out directly behind Rosales!

Read more... )

The rest of the Rosales-Varmas are in college still. I've finally gotten some time to play them again though, so there will be another update soon! Thanks so much for reading and I hope it was fun.
doronjosima: (evilboomfreeka)
Finally, a break from work, so I can post more of the Rosales Family story.



We start with Bindi, greeting Flauta Suarez from my SelfSim Experiment legacy.
Read more... )

That's all for now! More to come, hopefully sooner next time. Thanks for reading!
doronjosima: (confusion)
Yet more college.... it never ends....



We start with Hortense, bitching out Crystal the Racist. In the girls' bathroom, oh so high school!
Hortense: "Your world view stinks!"

Read more... )
And that's the end for now! More to come!
doronjosima: (smooch)


We start with Bindi and Nancy, very much in love.

Read more... )

More to come as I sort my screenies!
