Discovered I had enough screenies for an Eighties update! Whoo hoo! This is good, since I have had no time to play Sims in forever. Tragically, work and life have been In The Way.

Now, everyone remembers the deal here: it's an I'm Surrounded By Idiots (ISBI) Challenge, featuring our founder, Jenny Eighties. She married Luiz, a gorgeous imbecile, and they proceeded to have twins, the charming and dim-witted Jack and Diane. And oh yes, the naming theme for this legacy is the wonderful and often cheesy music of the 1980's. And other 80's stuff, because I am an Old. Anyway, let's get started!



We start with Jenny outside in her PJs, picking up the trash can, YET AGAIN. Why? Because she's the only one who can. Who cares if she's pregnant! I have no idea who keeps knocking it over, unless it's Diane. (It's probably Diane.)

Anyway, that's all for now. Hope you enjoyed it, and here's hoping I can actually get some time to play again soon. If only I didn't require sleep!

Long delay between entries, I know, but that's the usual for me. This is a pretty sizeable one though, so maybe that makes up for it! Anyway, in our last delightful episode, everyone finally finished college, and there was much rejoicing!



First off, let's meet our main heir: Celia Gorey! She's rocking her new gothier makeover.

And that's all for this massive update! Hopefully I can be a little quicker on the next one.

Finally some free time to do an update again! I warn everyone, this chapter will have my terrible tiny screenshots from when I was finally able to play again after reinstalling my game- I had forgotten to reset my screenshot size, so they look just awful. Apologies in advance.



We start with Jack, playing in the tub, little suspecting that in mere minutes of game time, he will be captured for all time in a cheap, poor resolution fashion to be displayed on the internet!

Read more... )

That's all for this update! Next time: bigger screenshots, the birth of the newest addition to the Eighties clan, and more wacky ISBI hijinks! Thanks for reading!

Oh, computer woes, how you vex and confound me. This update actually uses pics taken with my shiny new video card- and oh, it's so shiny and nice. However, it also has massive power needs. And tragically, my current computer power supply is Insufficient (as in, it overheats and wants to destroy everything). So, I've had to remove the Shiny New Video Card and haven't gotten to buy a replacement power supply yet. This has put a crimp in my Sims playing, as it's just hard to go back to onboard video. Add in that one of my beloved cats has been diagnosed with diabetes *and* a brain tumor, and I've been slightly broke and distracted. (My cats are very precious to me, so I spent a good deal on treatment for my kitty-- which just pushes my new power supply further away. But I'm happy my cat is still with us for a while longer.)

ANYWAY. Goreys. Sims. Gothiness. Let's get to that before I get too emo.



Thump is the first one to wake up this play session, so he is the first screen-cap victim.

Read more... )

And that's all for now! Thank you as always for reading. I'm hoping I can play my game again soon; I haven't even loaded it since taking out the new video card because I'm still worried about the power supply overheating. It'll be a couple of paychecks before I can spring for a new one though, those vet bills kind of took a chunk out of the ol' finances. Oh, the delightful life of being a responsible adult.

doronjosima: (Default)
Finally, a bit of free time to update! I've been prevented from Simming for ages both due to work and because my computer decided my power supply was insufficient for my new video card. So, I've been trying not to overtax it while I wait for my new components to come in. And having used the new video card, going back to the on-board video card is like torture. Yes, yes, first world problems. Anyway! Time for Goreys!

Last time, Maud was born and became a toddler. Quentin, Celia and Thump all managed to snag teenage girlfriends. Epitwee and Hal continued to be in love.



It is the middle of the night, so of course when Hal and Twee get home from work, their children are still awake and playing outside. In the snow. Also, they need outdoor lighting like whoa.

Read more... )

That's all for this update. Not that big, or really that exciting. Next update, we finally get into the screenies I took using my new video card. (Yes, the one that makes my computer overheat and freak out- I can't believe I'm upgrading components simply to have better video performance...)
doronjosima: (Default)
You know, someday I will understand how other people number their legacy posts, that whole 1.5, 4.8, 6.3, etc. system really just confuses me. (Can anyone explain it? I am poor with numbers...)

Last time, Maud was born, Celia and Thump became teens, Louise and Ortenzia became children, and precisely half of the children were incredibly dull. (It's not really Maud's fault though, being an infant.)



Starting off, Hal and Epitwee are still very much in love. And, their love is apparently a source of great delight to Ortenzia.

Read more... )

And that's all for now! The teens all each have a regular crush that they are interested in, Louise and Ortenzia are having a fairly idyllic childhood so far, and Maud is being taught her toddler skills, albeit mostly off camera. Thanks so much for reading, I always appreciate it.

doronjosima: (Default)
Last time, the twins Louise and Ortenzia were born, and grew up out of their larval stage into the toddler stage. Our founder, Epitwee, got pregnant again on the sly (without me even noticing!) which will help in her LTW to marry off six children. Her husband Hal continued in his Journalism career. Celia was a giant bratling, which at least made her more interesting that her brothers Quentin and Thump, who were dull as dishwater. Now you're all caught up!



We start this update with Celia looking confused while using her EZ-Bake Oven. This does not bode well...

Read more... )

That's all for now. As always, thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate it! Comments are also always appreciated. More to come, since I've been playing ahead. (And good god, getting six teens into college is the definition of Not Fun. Stupid Maud, making things take forever...)

Part 1 * Part 2 * Part 3 * Part 4 * Part 5 * Part 6

doronjosima: (Default)
So, last time I posted, Epitwee was about to give birth to her second set of twins. Her previous three children had no outward signs of getting any of her husband Hal's DNA at all- she pretty much managed to steamroller over his genetics with her own, 100%.



The first of the babies is born, and spitefully closes her eyes the instant I snap a picture. Is it Twee's genetics only all over again...?

Read more... )

That's all for now, just a short update. I'll be going to a big anime convention this upcoming weekend (for work, not for fun, alas), so my time's been pretty eaten up with prep for that. That also contributed to the shortness of this update, but I wanted to get one out at least since it'd been a while. Thanks for reading!

doronjosima: (moisim)
When we last left the Goreys, Quentin had grown up well and was now a child. He was pretty happy about the whole affair.



He has all his mother's genetics. I'll post his full stats when he hits his teen years.

Read more... )

That's all for now! Tune in next time to see what the next set of twins will be like! Will they get *any* of Hal's genetic material, or will Epitwee's powerful DNA continue to dominate the children?

As always, thanks for reading!

doronjosima: (whoa)
Somehow I managed to miss updating at all in March. Life's been.... busy and hectic. I've had these pictures saved up for more than a month, even. Shame on me. Anyway, let's get back to the Goreys!



If you can recall that long ago, Epitwee and Hal had their first child, Quentin Gorey. He has all his mother's genetics. He is also #1 in a series of 6, since Twee's LTW is to have six children get married.

Read more... )

And that's all for this update! Join us again, hopefully sooner than a month from now, to find out how the new babies do. And will Hal ever get a job again?! A family of five can't survive on the income of one person!

Thanks so much for reading; comments are always appreciated. ^_^

Missed a few weeks when I could update from having a trip out of town, and then had to scrub my computer clean to get rid of a trojan. But now all is well again, and I can Sim it up. (Also, I have a cold, so I am resting.)

Last time, Epitwee Gorey finished college and moved into her rather dismal tiny legacy cottage. The house is on a lot of land though, so she can expand the house if need be eventually.



Epitwee invites her college fiance Hal Cooke to come and live with her.

Read more... )

That's all for this episode. I hope to get to update some more next week. Since I've had this cold/sinus problem/flu thingie I've been knocked out with, I've not had much time to play. But I'm taking it easy on my day off today, so hopefully I can get some more done. Thanks for reading!

doronjosima: (Default)
Continuing where we left off: Epitwee Gorey, long lost distant cousin of the late Friedrich Gorey, was sullenly working her way through college.



Epitwee gets my seal of approval because she cleans things autonomously. That's awesome.

Read more... )

That's all for now, college is finished. Next update, we'll get down to the important part of the legacy- bringing about the next generation! And since Epitwee wants to have six children, she's got to get a jump on it!

Thanks for reading!

So, if you've followed this LJ at all, you'd know already that I was doing a traditional "let's not cheat" Legacy Challenge before. My personal theme for said challenge was to name all the progeny after characters, places and things that appeared in the works of Edward Gorey, and thus, they were all supposed to be extremely gothic. I was doing my absolute best not to cheat, though I did use my usual mods simply because I couldn't be bothered to remove them from the Downloads folder before I played.

And then, my computer completely died, and I lost everything on my hard drive. Including all my Sims.

But now! My games are reinstalled! All my favorite custom content is reinstalled! And thus, I am restarting the Gorey Legacy! Not with the same founder, since remaking him would be no guarantee he'd have the same personality. No, instead, this iteration of the Gorey Legacy will start with his distant cousin, Epitwee Gorey!

(We will totally ignore the fact that I was so excited to be playing the Sims again, I completely forgot to set my screenshot resolution to the highest setting until I was in the middle of university. Thus, these first screenshots are pretty cruddy and awful. It's like starting all over from scratch, complete with n00b-ish mistakes!)

Anyway, here's our NEW founder:



Epitwee Gorey
Family/Knowledge
LTW: Marry Off Six Children (Oy vey...)
Aquarius (it worked for dear departed Friedrich, and it works for me...)
Neat: 5; Outgoing: 6; Active: 4; Playful: 5; Nice: 5
Turn-Ons: red hair, witchiness; Turn-Off: blonde hair

Read more... )

And thus, the first part of college begins!

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.

Read more... )

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.
doronjosima: (Default)
.... 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!
doronjosima: (Default)
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: (whoa)
Finally have a free moment (and a backlog of pics uploaded...), so it's time for a Gorey Legacy update! Last time, all of Gen2 graduated college and had found someone to shack up with; Boggerslosh and Eepie lost the heir race and became spares (though both married and produced children- Harold and Lizzia, respectively); Epergne and Embley were chosen as Double Heirs for the Gorey name.



Embley moved back home and wasted no time in calling up her college fiancee, Breanna Thompson.

Read more... )

Next time, we'll see what Embley has, and find out who they take after. Always my favorite part of simming!
doronjosima: (love)
Yes, it's been months. I work a lot. (Two jobs...) Also, I'm married now, and have more social obligations because of that. It's rude to ignore the husband for hours to play the Sims on the rare occasions we have time off together. XD Anyway! Who cares about that? You want Goreys!



If you recall, Naenae got old last time (so did Friedrich), but she also maxed her Games enthusiasm! Now she has the Hi-Pro Glow every time she plays a game. Which means just about CONSTANTLY.

Read more... )

There you go, a big fat update! Next time, the college years, including makeovers, first woohoos, engagements, and the announcement of who is and isn't heir! (Heir speculation welcome...)

Thanks for reading and I hope everyone has a great New Year's! Happy Simming!
