Categories: Komödie,Lebensgeschichten der Sims
- Hello and Welcome to the first
Installment of my first (apoca)legacy
ever, starring Anais Eden, from my
lost neighbourhood, Edenville. For a
quick background of her watch
Episode 0, Rules for the Legacy
Challenge and Apocalegacy Challenge
by Pinstar can be found at
"Where is the dorm?"
- As perhaps you've already
recognized, like most other
Apocalypse Challenges, we start at
the Campus at La Fiesta Tech, there
are already enough freaks here, so
Anais will nicely fit in. -
"Oh, thank you for the nice
compliment, now where is the
- A short look at Anais personality:
she is a pisces, with a personality of
4/5/7/2/7 - yes, you've read right,
seven nice points, but she is mean as
hell - at least to me. Her Turn-ons are
Custom hair and Vampires, her Turn-
off fat. Oh, and I rolled pleasure for
her - Lifetime want 50 Dream Dates.
"FOR THE LAST TIME, WHERE IS
- Hey, calm down. And to be honest,
there is no dorm on this lot. -
- Well, in fact, this is my second try
with this challenge. Somehow, my
comp can't handle dorms, so, after
dormies becoming motionless, taxi
call disappearing, constantly crashing
of the dorm... oh well, I used a backup
and started again. This time, I start
with an empty lot, to avoid this
things. This'll make things a bit
harder, but... well, it was just too easy
last time... -
"LAST TIME? TOO EASY?"
- Yes, and to make it even harder, I'll
added some Legacy handicaps, as
there are: The Apocalypse
(Obviously), Aspiring to do it the hard
way, Do it yourself, Free Roaming
Ghosts, Fearless, Matriarchy, Middle
of Nowhere, Noble Composure, One
Way Street, Presidential Physical
Fitness and Storyteller - whew, that's
18 points in total, I think, we can
perhaps add the true love handicap to
make it twenty...
"ARE YOU CRAZY?! NOT ONLY
YOU WANT ME TO GET THROUGH
THIS IDIOCY -"
- Legacy -
" I DON'T CARE! I DIDN'T AGREE
TO THIS AND I NEVER WILL!"
- Do you realize, how many legacy
founder say that in the beginning? If
Maxis would get a dollar for that
every time... -
"I HATE YOU!"
- Yes, this is also the common reaction
of all legacy founders. And could you
please stop speaking in capital letters,
it's rude... -
" I get you for this one day..."
- Whatever... Okay, since the lot
already costs around 200 Simoleons,
we have to choose our equipment
carefully... I think, we'll invest in a
phone and a bookcase...
" Hello, Campus bureau? Could you
please give me the number of a
competent lawyer, I have to report an
urgent case of mistreating innocent
Sims... What do you mean, there can
nothing be done, there has to... hello?
- I suggest, you should call a taxi.
Come on, Anais, I promise, I'll take
good care of you! -
" Brrr, this from your mouth sounds
like a prediction of doom and eternal
hell... what have I done in my former
life to deserve this...?"
- And off to Campus we go! -
" Hey, where did my Phone and the
- I sold them, we won't need them
anymore, one book is enough. -
"One Book? You expect me to study
with one book?"
- I didn't make the rules of this game, I
just play it -
- Okay, first of all, let's buy a handy, it
will become really... handy! -
" Haha, really funny. Even your jokes
- And we already spotted our first
victim... I mean first secret society friend,
" Hi, I'm Anais, I'm new here and
controlled by a vile entity which
commands me either to become your
friend or get killed if I refuse his orders,
so you're in the moral dilemma
socializing with me or run away to save
your own life... "
- Despite this introduction, Anais and
Anna became friends after playing chess
and watching a cooking tv show, and it
showed me the power of Outings,
nothing beats that! -
" What I don't understand: why does this
increase my motives? Am I taking drugs
in the process?"
- Gah, you sounded just like my parents,
when I explained it to them. Can we skip
the topic? -
" It was just a question. After all, we all
*know* what bubble blowers and
- YES, okay, I get it. Now call a taxi, we
have to find some more memb... I mean
- On the journey searching for more
secret society friends, we met Maja,
who played drums at the desert
loungue - and surprisingly well. I
always thought, secret society
members are all completely talentless
dorks only worth to be turned into
cheeseloving zombies, married to
hideous women, becoming famous for
making Chili... -
" Not that I want to interrupt your
Candi - Admiration, but do you
realize that classes have already
- No, I'm pretty sure there aren't any
classes for me today. -
- Relax, you won't need so much
classes, a short visit to meet the prof
should be enough... -
- And finally we found our third
Secret Society friend, Chris. All female
- where are the males? -
"... And he talks to you all the time?"
" Yes, right now he is complaining,
that he didn't find any guys with this
" Oh they're all at the "Miss Uglacy
Competition" for three days, which
means this whole semester. Do you
understand why everyone is so in this
'ugly sims' thing?"
"Sssht, for the sake of my unborn
children, don't give him ideas!"
- Okay, meet prof, know three Secret
Society members, this is almost
everything we need at campus. Next
stop: maxis-made downtown. We
start at the gym club, as it has
showers, a coffeebar, a grill -
everything (for) a Sim(s) needs. There,
the Outings continue - I really don't
know, how many Outings Anais had
for the whole College time, it must be
" *Yawn*, do you even hear yourself
listening? Who cares about this stuff?"
- It could be helpful for others... -
" No, it cannot! And now stop
bothering me, I have an appointment
with Professor Sunday later."
- And for that *appointment*, Anais
asked for some help from a pro... -
" So that's all? I always thought, there
has to be something more about dates.
At least the traditional 'Movie -
Dinner - to you or to me or see you' -
"Skip this, sweetie. No Sim ever does
this anyway. So, do you want a potion
"Sorry, not enough money. But thanks
for the advice. If I get some rose
bouquets, I'll consider your offer
- With this tips, Anais *Appointment*
was forced to be a success -
" Oh, Miss Eden... I never had such an
*drool* intelligent and competent
student - ever..."
" Thank you, Professor Sunday,
teehee. Sorry that I never visit your
classes, but I was thinking...
well, perhaps you could give me some
" Oooo...f course, I always encourage
my students to improve their *skills*
on their own..."
"Grrr... I hate these player-controlled
Sims. I work here 24/7, with enough
Skills to get into every career I want,
and this b**ch just raises her grades
- Nicole, look at it that way: you can
stay indefinitely here, with the vague
hope getting into Uni someday, where
you'd do the exact same thing as her. -
" Not to mention, that it's not always
so easy for me too... OUCH, You... ehr,
I mean...Prof, the lower toes were
- Okay, Grade bar is filled, now we go
for mate hunt -
"... working as a store clerk can be
really hard sometimes, especially
without any decent skills... but I got
the worker of the month award one
time... well, the others were all ill that
- Nope, sorry, definitely not suitable
for an apocalypse challenge... -
" Waitaminute ...Let me get this
straight: I have to ask every guy on
this lot what's his career, just so you
can figure out, which one would the
best for me, my children and even my
- That's the plan. -
" EEEWWW, that's just sick! I've heard
of 'prearranged' marriages in legacies,
but this just freaks me out!"
- Still the Search continues... this one's
a bit better... -
"Yeah babe, I'm a counterfeiter. Half
the money this town has comes from
"Do you tell that every girl you've just
know for a few hours? What if I was a
famous crime fighter in my former
" Babe, crime is an important part of
economy! We even have job
advertisements in the news paper!"
- Somehow this a good argument... -
"I'm a Hall of Famer."
- RED ALERT! RED ALERT!
Definitely a candidate for the
" Have you seen his face? He looks
- Nonsense, you motives are low, and
you want fifty dream dates, I think
we'll start now. -
"Do I have to marry him ??!!"
- Hm... No , I rather look for Medicine
or Culinary... We'll spare him for later
" And I should date the later husband
for... if you excuse me, I have to go to
the bathroom to puke my guts out..."
- But finally I could persuade Anais to
go for the kill - I mean Date.-
" Oh Red (despite the fact that you're
green), I never felt such a burning in
" Heart Cancer?"
" No, it's like an arrow piercing
through my heart..."
" Like the one over your head?"
- Anais, don't be so rude with the poor
" He's a romance Sim, for crying out
loud! Once he's had his way with me,
he'll already be heartfarting about the
next two or three girls!"
- But in the End (after 5 Dreamdates,
one after the other - Bullet Speed
Dating, lol) Hoagie - I'll call him
Hoagie - finally succeded: -
"Uh, hun, to be honest, I... never had it
with... I mean..."
"Ooooh... is little Red shy? That's
okay... I'll be nice..."
- I didn't pay attention, who said
what, but it could fit for both. In the
end, it was the same result:
woo, woo, woo, woo, hoo
I can improvise
woo, woo, woo, woo, hoo
I've got SimCity heart
*free after "Why should I worry" by
Dan Hartmann and Charlie Midnight,
sung by Billy Joel in Walt Disneys
Classic Animated Movie "Oliver and
- Okay, back to business, Anais got a
call downtown (never knew, that you
can be called while on a community
lot), and guess who? -
" Hey Anna, why the sad face? "
" Anais... there is something...
something I have... to tell you..."
"If you're pregnant, I'm most
definitely not the father, unless it's a
- ANAIS! -
"What? This has happened one time in
my former life..."
"I'm so totally in love with you!"
" Ug... I knew this little flirt at the
begin was a bad idea..."
- Awww, but she is cuter than Hoagie,
you have to admit...-
" I didn't ask you about an advice for
my love life, nor did anyone else!"
- Okay, okay, I'm fine with that, do as
you please. -
- Yes, really pleasing... or: 6
Dreamdates later... -
" Oh...My... I can't believe you did
Again, I don't know who said that on
- Finally, after spending literally
weeks downtown, Anais finally
returned home -
"If you can call a total empty lot
- ehrm, she returned home, and the
'effort' followed immedeatly...
" Aww, for the..." "...most wonderful,
lovable..." "...person of the whole
- Do you realize, that since only one
person is living on this lot, you most
definitely came for the same person? -
"My girlfriend would never cheat on
- ...*sigh* townies... -
- While waiting for the next taxi - yes,
again - Anais got some skill points on
their own.. -
" I still don't understand, how a single
paperback book bears the knowledge
of over 1001 cooking receipts,
advanced electronics and the modern
techniques of desinfection and
- Have you ever read the title? -
" Junior Woodchucks Guidebook for
College Students... oh. Okay, the
magic of Disney, right?"
- By the way: since Anais already has
enough aspiration points, and the
aspiring to do it the hard way
restriction forbids the use of any
aspiration reward except the
ReNuYu-Sensor, I placed one of them
here... just in case, a Sim in the reds
walks by and accidentily stick his
head in... -
" Don't. make. me. ever. do. it."
- Well, at least I tried...-
- Downtown again. Anais made her
first tenthousand, by just bartending
"Man, am I tired. Not even the
occasional coffee fight exites me
anymore... Can I have least a coffee for
myself this time?"
- Nope, Outings are cheaper. Why
don't you try your Luck with bathing
suit guy over there? -
" Oh why not... hmm, you know, he
actually looks cute..."
- And he's a Restauranteur, Level 9 of
the Culinary Career! Goodlooking,
high Skills and appropiate career path
- Jackpot! -
"Thank heaven! Can we stop with this
mate hunting now, please?"
- Stop? We haven't even started yet! -
- But I allow you to fall in love with
"You... allow me???!"
- Well, remember Hoagie? Anna and
the Prof only appear at Uni, so no
danger there, but Jeromé here - I'll call
him Jerry - can be a bit more
Edit: In fact, Hoagie found her 4 times
cheating, but thankfully, he always
fall again for Anais Seduction...
- And now it's about time for some
Presidential Physical Fitness... -
"Wow, look at my muscles! I'm the
strongest girl on earth!"
- Do you realize your left arm
would've been stuck in the wall, If I
didn't scroll them down? -
"Well, now it's stuck in the balustrade.
Seems like I have to use my
superhuman strength to free myself
from this... Ah, just like in old times,
- I think, we can skip this and move
on to new things like... -
-...pool billard! It took some time, but
Anais was born for this. In no time she
became a famous billard player... -
- taking the money of all the losers,
that were dumb enough to mess with
her- like Kennedy Cox here... -
" *Sob*, there goes the last money of
my recruit job for the next 10 Years..."
- And then, Anais also got her bust-a-
move for persistent dancing... and
suddenly, it began to rain friends...
How much best friends do you have
now, Anais? -
" oh about 15 or so... Mr. DJ-guy here
is possibly Nr. 16..."
- Anyway, at the end of this semester,
she had almost twenty... and she
didn't stop there... -
"I didn't stop? You didn't stop!"
- You rolled the wants
- She also tried her luck with poker -
and i realized, that this game has no
hidden skill at all...-
" It was just a bad card last time. Just
let try me again, okay?"
- No! And you stop rolling this poker
- But at least the pokertable has some
advantages... Ehrm, Miss
Crumplebottom? There are two
people k-i-s-s-i-n-g! Right in Front of
" Shut up, kid! I'm just about to kick
this fat Toymakers butt! Now gimme
your pants, you Loser!"
- Golden Poker Rule: Never play
against Mrs. Crumplebottom, she
always wins. -
- Meanwhile, with 3 Logic points
gathered by Outings, I let Anais take
some time to improve her meditation
- Back for the Hunt - I forgot his
Name, but it's a Celebrity Chief! -
"We have negative Chemistry."
- Who cares, we can... -
"Listen! I'm sick of this game. I'm
willing to continue this stupid job
interviews, if you stop your constant
'oh, take him, no take him, no take
that' and so forth, okay?"
- mmm... agreed. Oh, we haven't
asked this guy over there yet! -
" *Sigh* "
Job Interview Nicolai Wood:
"I'm a Mad Scientist."
" You don't look so... well..."
"It's just the job title. But my Idol is
Loki Beaker! He's my Hero!"
"Loki... your... okay, this 'is' mad!"
Job Interview Goopy Gilscarbo:
"I'm the maior of SimCity!"
" You're the... Who in the world
would be stupid enough to vote
- Considering Goopy's Popularity
within the Community, it's not that
surprising, don't you think so? -
Job Interview: Benjamin Long
" I'm a General."
- Oh, hothothot...-
" Hey, can I please take a break now?"
- A break? this were only three
"... Out of nearly the entire male
population downtown! I've asked
everyone of them, and got everything:
unemployed, Level 3, 4 or 5 of every
career path, even elders! I want a
- mmmh... okay, how about a visit to
Bluewater Village, perhaps the
"This is absolutely not, what I had in
mind with a break..."
- Hey, you're doing great, this is your
first makeover and you didn't even
ruin his hair in the process - though I
had hoped for some funny pictures...
And switching him to Custom hair
raises your relationship with Jerry to a
" Which means..."
- Remember true love Handicap? I
think, we have a winner... -
- Some Dream Dates later, switch of
partners... remember Hoagie? -
"Oh my... What did you do to me?"
"Uhm, sorry Hoagie, but I realized
you're very shortsighted when you
kissed the Pool balustrade instead of...
and I kinda hoped the beard would
hide your... um..."
"My hair! I meant my hair!"
"Oh that... ehrm, so how about
"See, with the Cap nobody will see,
and you look like a Sportscoach or
- He actually liked it... and I realized,
that unlike other badges Styling can
be earned even on community lots, as
the sign shows... Anais, I think you
might enjoy your stay here a bit
"Don't tell me you want..."
- Preparation for this Challenge is
- Originally I wanted to add now
dozens of pictures showing victims of
Anais Styling, but in fact, she nearly
never failed, and by constantly
making over the same guy again and
again, she earned her Gold badge in
no time... with short breaks doing
dates at the whirl pools...-
- Back Downtown: Meet Count...
ehrm... what was his name... oh never
" Somehow he doesn't look like a
'Normal Vampire'... and he resembles
General 'Pinocchio'... But strangely
he's still hot... (considering me being
turned on by vampires)"
- Oh that... In fact it's Enaylas Vampire
Skin from MTS2, made default... and
the other Sims have default Skin from
Simscribbling... All Credit to them! -
"So, um, Count... ready for a night full
- In fact, he was... -
- Trapped between two Vampires (the
Countess right behind her...), it was
impossible to escape... -
*At this point I wasn't sure, If the Do-
it-yourself -handicap allows to buy
Vamp-D from the gypsy, since you
actually can't do it yourself, and
thankfully it was answered with yes...
"EXCUSE ME, but during your stupid
rule-bubbling, daylight came out and
I really don't want to sunburn!!!!!!"
- Thankfully, Anais knows how to
meditate, so I can wait till next night
for the gypsy...-
- But after biting Anais, the Count
somehow... became addicted to
"ARRG, I knew it was a bad idea to
switch shifts with Sara at the
- Remember Nicole? See, now you
don't have to work anymore 24/7, in
fact your Life has become an endless
night shift... -
- I spent searching the next night for
the gypsy, but never found her, but
thankfully she already was at the
home lot, so... -
"Finally, the nightmare is over..."
- I thought, you 'like' vampires? -
" But not being one of them...I'll better
buy some more Vamp-D, just in
- Yes, just in case..., you know, this
whole no-motives-decay at
" I don't like, where this is going..."
- Despite the whole biting thing,
Anais was only more attracted to the
Count. And so another Bullet (Dream)
Dating followed. -
"Anais... In the countless - not
COUNTless - years of my undead
existence, I've never met such... such...
do you want to be my eternal bride,
raising fear and horror under the
mortal scum, starting the reign of the
"Oh Count, *giggle* what a generous
offer... but I don't know... see, I have
lots of human friends and... there
aren't so many Vampires, I mean
except you, the Countess, a former
NPC-Shopgirl and a random townie
whose Name I forgot..."
"If that is your only concern, fear not,
my love. Soon armies of Vampires
will rise to power, following my
commands, bringing chaos to rotten
- And that's exactly what he did... -
- ...because very time now, when the
Count walked on a Lot, he generally
bit a least one Sim, if it were townies...
" For the power of my love, I'll do
- or NPC's.. -
"Damn, I knew It was a bad idea to
switch shifts with Nicole at the Gym
- ...or even other playable Sims. -
" Great, how should I explain this to
my husband now?"
- Wendy, at this, rate, Stephen will
follow you soon to 'the dark side'.
And your daughter'll love your new
- And what about Anais? Well, while
the Count was busy with this entire
army thing, She just managed to fulfill
her lifetime want - Fifty Dream Dates
- and we're still in the first semester!!!
"Finally... I didn't think I would
survive the last ones..."
- There'll be some more later. -
I think, I'll go for the Impossible Want
Point of 100 Dreamdates - so you're
already halfway through...
- ...Hate you? -
"I give up..."
- We still had some time till the exam,
so Anais spent her last hours in the
library, maxing her first Skill,
Mechanic...with her precious
guidebook, of course.
" Chapter 11... How to get control over
'the Sims 2' freeing yourself from
- You can stop reading, I ripped out
these pages too. -
- And with that, Anais finally finished
her first Semester. Just for the
Scorecard: Perfect grades, Permaplat,
Maximized Mechanics, 28 other
random skill points from Outings and
Dates, Big Sim on Campus, five
lovers, three Secret Society friends
(not abducted yet, it never became
night at the home lot) and around 30
other friends, most of them best
friends, a Gold stylist badge, Pool
billard master, great dancer, and
around 17.000 Bucks by bartending
etc... and everything without cheating
- ... Oh Anais, what would you've
done without me? -
"Certainly living a life in sheer
happiness instead of sheer exhaustion
from all this stuff..."
- But... but you've reached so much... -
" And now most of my daydreams
circle around sleeping in a bed at least
one time, or eating a third hot dog..."
- And so, to raise her mood a bit, I
invited over Chris and Anna - Maja
left the lot right after entering it, so
she was spared from the following... I
think everyone knows the termpaper
trick: If you influence more than one
Sim to write your term paper at the
same time, not only your grade will be
- ...even three times, which is almost
the full grade bar... you know Anais,
this is somehow cheating...
"Do you'd prefer if I invite Professor
*teehee* Sunday over and be *really*
nice to him?"
- Good point... I really wish real world
would be that easy... -
"EASY?! I'm being commandered
around here by a guy, who only sees
me as a Sum of stats *he* achieves!"
- Let's stop fighting, okay? I promise,
I'll change... -
- And so, the first night at home
arises... and the power of the Mighty
Chicken dance... -
"Anais Eden, you've been arrested
" Finally! What took you so long? You
should arrive at 11, not at midnight!"
" uh... we had a little Glitch on the
" Whatever, now do your perverted
handcuff game and get over with it!
At least it's not a stinking taxi this
time, I never want to see a taxi again
for the rest of my life!"
- Awww, the secret society... I have to
confess, I've never visited 'this' secret
society before... what wonderful
things will we find here? -
"...And that's all? A jacket, a pooltable
and a glasshouse? I've somehow
- hmm... you're right, it's not that
impressive... and Outings aren't
possible here either... -
"Is that everything you can think of?"
- Now, now, no more fighting, at least
you're in, so you won't have to worry
over a house anymore, once the
apocalypse strikes... -
- So we returned home, with some of
the Society career rewards. -
"And I still think, the hydroponic
garden is some sort of..."
- Yes, I know... -
- Speaking about plants... Anais, you
should take care of the roses...they're
already crowding the street... -
" I've never seen a car on this street
before except for the taxi, so why
should I even bother?"
- Still, it would be nice, if... -
"Fine, I'll place them in my Ã-
- In fact, from now on, she placed
everything there, entire wagons of
roses vanished in her inventory... -
- ...and other gifts, too... wow,
Professor Sunday, that's really
"For the lady, that can shake my b...
uh... so well, nothing is too exclusive!"
- And it went on: Statues, TVs of every
size, Stereos, Fountains, more DJ
Stands... aw, man, real world... -
"Not this again!"
- Okay, so now I have a 'real' present
for you, too! -
"Hey, cool! Thanks, it even matches
my Hair and Skin color!"
- I knew, you'd like it. -
" Everything is better than a taxi...
waitaminute, where did my money
- Uh... Oh look, your motives are
down, better do some Outing with
your new car... -
- And some Outing later, we're at the
beauty salon again. To memorize the
high Level guys I've decided to give
them a makeover... ignore the fight in
the mirror, it means nothing... -
"Wow, General Grunt will be green
with envy if he sees me!"
- I have to agree, except for the nose
this is really an improvement... Now if
we could change his dress, too...
- Next one Nicolai, Mr. Loki Beaker
"Oh my gosh, I look like Loki's lost
Twin Brother... Perhaps I actually AM
Loki's lost Twin brother..."
- And all the while the Outings
continue... in this pic, Anais
maximized her Cooking Skill... -
- ...And here her Logic Skill... but I still
can't figure out the logic behind the
random Outing/Date Skill raise...
neither quality nor number of persons
seem to have any influence... -
- More predictable are of course the
Career rewards. Here Anais raises -
with the help of this Celebrity Chief
whose Name I still don't remember -
to maximize her Creativity by
growing Mar... Plants, just ordinary,
harmless Plants... -
- For his help, a free makeover waits
for him... and I think, I'll let Jeromé
just choose another career path, I have
something in mind... -
"Ouu... Ca c'est magnifique! Tres
bien... but why am I talking french
- And another makeover... this guy is
a maior like Goopy... Why do they
need two Maiors? Well, I was out of
ideas, so I chose beard and zylinder
like... like... some victorian maior...
- And here we have the superheroine
of Simcity! Too bad, she's female, so
no chance in a matriarchy... -
"At least I can sleep safe now - if I'm
ever going to sleep - that someone
protects the City like me before..."
- After that, we continued with the
dates... this time, it weren't always
Dreamdates... Here the Prof had a
bladder failure and just finished the
date seconds before the final... -
- ...And here, Jeromé had left due to
an illness... I tried to teach him Logic
with the Biotech station... and he
produced a virus! Strangely, next time
on a community lot, he was totally
okay again... -
"Mmmh... how nice! I've never got a
love letter before. And these roses
start to annoy me..."
- These few roses... what did we have?
Around 70 dates only... -
- And the third semester starts. For the
Scorecard: Perfect Grades, 4 Skills
Maximized, only 13 Skill points left,
still five lovers (caught two times
cheating, sorry, forgot pics...), over
fourty friends, nearly 30 of them best
friends (she rolls the wants, not me),
21837 Simoleons, *without*
Date/Outing rewards...perhaps I've
really overdone it, this should be a
challenge after all...
"So you'll end this obscenity? Pretty
- Mmmh, no... I think, I'll try some of
the impossible wants first... -
- To save some time, I'll keep this
semester a bit shorter - there didn't
happen so much, anyway... After
rasing her Grade bar, Anais maxed
"I found a thumbnail of you on the
ReNuYu-Sensor... Please don't tell me,
you've used it..."
"I just wanted to figure out, what it
"...Do you like *Cheese*?
"Cheese? I'm allergic to Cheese!"
"Than you *really* don't want to
- After that, for Body and Charisma
left, we drove to the Swimbath... -
" *Teehee*, but Prof..."
" Mmmh, Hoagie..."
" Oh Count, *giggle*..."
" Oh my...Anna..."
" Jerry, guess what I have in this small
- Know their weaknesses...At least she
isn't a romance Sim, so I can keep
- And after that, I decided, instead of
the home trainer I'll invest in a
bowling alley. The rumors were right:
It's faster than a home trainer, but
doesn't drain energy and and hygiene
so fast. So the Scorecard for this
semester: Maximized All Skills -
without any aspiration rewards, I've
never done that before -, Got the thirty
best friends want - also normally
impossible for me - 36543 Simoleons
in Cash, and lots of flower bouquets
from 87 Dream Dates... -
" Don't forget to mention how much
I've suffered for that..."
- I'm suffering too. After all, I'm not so
sure anymore, if I should post this
Story, too little Misery and suffering
- Fourth Semester arose...instead of
the library, this time I bought some
Computers for the Home lot. This
Time all three of Anais Secret Society
Friends showed up... -
"You know... I somehow feel like I'm
commiting slave labour..."
- They agreed to it and weren't forced
to do it, I don't see any problem with
" I don't know what bothers me more:
the situation, or the fact, that I could
almost agree with you..."
- With all Skills maximized, it's now
time for some Business Talents... -
" Will you never get enough? And
where is my Car?!"
- In your inventory, so it's worth won't
decrease so much... -
" In my...? And there I've found it
funny, when they told these stories
about Adventure Gaming
- Two days later - in Home Lot Time,
we always took breaks downtown to
regain motives- , Anais achieved her
gold flower badge... the same day the
playtesting rules for pets came out... I
decided to try these new rules... after
all, pets aren't allowed in Uni, so no
great loss, that I don't have the Exp
"Hello? I'm now done with the
snapdragons, may I take a rest now?"
- Could you take a quick look first at
what I've bought you? -
- And surrounded by snapdragons,
only with breaks for
hours before the next semester, Anais
got her Gold Robot badge... -
"At least I can have a Servo now..."
- Sorry, Do-it-yourself Handicap, no
servos allowed. -
"YOU'VE GOT TO BE %Â§&/Â§
-... You should go now, your Exam
has started... -
5th Semester Sorecard: Nearly 50(!)
best friends, earned 36783 Simoleons
*without* selling Anais Workbench
creations, still perfect grades, and 100
Dreamdates... with only five different
people. And since I wanted to try this,
too, I invited all of Anais friends over
- male and female - for first Dates, so
she had 50 first Dates as well... too
bad, that only one impossible want
- Do you want to say something? -
"You've forced me to do all kinds of
things I'm not proud of, so I've
decided to stop complaining. Do,
what you want, I couldn't care less..."
-And with that comment, Anais
achieved her last working bench gold
badge... in five semesters only... -
" Finally... Oh, you're still there?"
"Anais, we need to talk."
"If it's about the term papers..."
"No , it's not that... not totally at least.
See, we're concerned about you. This
whole Outing and Working stuff and
your constant talk with this 'creator'
you mentioned isn't normal anymore.
Please, Anais, tell us what's wrong,
we're your friends after all..."
- Uh, oh... - (Imagine the sound of a
"Hey Miss, I'm Marsha! Nice to meet
you! Do you want to be best friends with
me? I'm a great best friend and I promise,
I'll phone you every day just to keep up
our precious friendship and..."
"I know, who you are, Marsha."
"AND GUESS WHAT? I WANT TO BE
BEST FRIENDS WITH YOU! HECK, I
WANT TO BE BEST FRIENDS WITH
EVERYONE I MEET ON THE STREET,
INCLUDING NPC'S, TEENAGERS AND
CHILDREN! I WANT TO BE BEST
FRIENDS WITH THE WHOLE WORLD
AND I WILL PHONE EVERY LIVING
OR UNDEAD BEING DAY AND NIGHT
TILL THEY ARE MY FRIENDS OR
DEAD! PEACE SISTA, I WANT TONS
" Uh.. I... gotta run... WAAAAAAAAH!"
- At the fifth Semester, I rolled Dices for
Anais... and she turned into a Popularity
Sim! When she left College, every Sim
she was friends with - and she had 130,
yes 130 (!!!) friends - she also was BEST
friends with (but still only five lovers)...
Oh, and Marsha was the only exception,
but they still became normal friends...
She begins to scare me... what have I
- Here she shares a bath with some of
her NPC Friends... guess who they
are? These are the Llama Mascots
from La Fiesta Tech - and she has
negative chemistry with everyone of
them...but a 100/100 Relationship
with everyone of them, too! -
- But not only the Mascots, also the
Cheerleaders fell for her, all three of
"Oh Cadence, promise me, you'll
never agree to marry into an
apocalegacy or stuff like that, you see,
what has happened to me..."
"Uhhmm... okay... so Anais, have you
heard of my new boyfriend? He's so
cool, I think he'll ask for my hand
*For more infos about Cadence, watch
EphemeralToast's 'ApocaFUNlypse' at
the exchange or at
- And while Anais continued with her
the Count continued his 'mission' of
raising a vampire army as well... -
"We'll need warlords for our army...
Come over to the dark side, General
- But the Count knew no mercy. Not
even the privacy of a stinking toilet
room could stop him... -
- ...neither did rudeness of Brandy
"We need soldiers, who enjoy
pranking and mocking other people,
bringing chaos to this world..."
... the Count was unsatiable... Hey
Count, isn't this already enough?
You've already vamped 6 persons
autonomously this night... and at least
just *bite* them, not *eat* them and
bash their head in the cash register in
the process, you're not a zombie after
- But he wouldn't listen to anyone...
and soon, humans became a minority
at community lots... at least at night...
- Anais didn't bother with that at all...
she became best friends with Humans
as well as Vampires, still doing
Outings and Dates for the purpose of
getting friends, friends and even more
friends... And made a lot of Cash, too.
What you see here, is the "Earned
100.000"-Symbol... in College! I had
Fortune Sims, that never earned this
much in her whole lifetime... -
- Finally, she even started to sell books
like: 'Outings, Dates and Bests Friends
101', 'Advanced Styling - mark your
victims', 'Inventory for Dummies - Be
your own Adventure Gaming
Character' and 'The Woodchuck
Guidebook - Was Barks right?'...-
- And even began to sell paintings...
Anais, what are you painting there,
may I take a look? -
" Wait till I'm finished... actually, it's a
portrait of the person I have to thank
- Oh, I'm flattered... -
" It's a portrait of myself! "
- Oh... ehrr... -
" Who else did you expect? "
- Ehrm... nobody else, it was obvious...
but you should start taking the career
rewards back to the secret society
" This Portrait will hopefully remind
everyone forever, who their best
- Brrr... Hanging it over the resurrect-
o-nomitron somehow makes sense...
like an Altar for a dark deity that
phones you when you're asleep... -
- By the way: Did you see the elixier of
life bottles two pics before? Well, I went
for Legacy Collection points and this is
the result: 125 Bottles = 5 Collection
"You're doing your usual: 'see what I've
got , I'm so..."
- Nope, just picture proof... now wait,
I've got to do some calculation... 125... 15
Days for permaplat... An heir needs
usually 60 days to produce the next
heir... mrhmnbl... -
"What're you mumbling about?"
- You know, I just thought... well, if this
would be an Alphabet Legacy, with
Children named from A till Z, 27
Generations, and if you could use all
these bottles, I think, you'd still be alive
when the Z-Generation is born! -
"Don't. start. with. that. I'd. rather. die."
- ... Hmm- I'll still make a backup file for
later times... -
* For further infos about the Alphabet
Legacy... well www.boolprop.com, of
- And here I'll end this Chapter for
now... Anyone still awake or even
there? Sorry about all this, I just
wanted to go for Legacy Points - and
Anais has crushed every expectation I
ever had with ease... oh, the hell, a
toast for Anais and all her friends...
ehrm, Miss Crumplebottom, why are
you sitting there? -
"I'm always in for a little
booze...besides, Red (despite she's
green) and I are best friends."
- You... and Anais are... OoOoh!
"Oh Professor Wilson, *TeeHee*,
you're so smart... and you actually
care about me unlike this stupid
creator, who only has eyes for this
greenskinned, robo-eyed Freak I'm
best friends with..."
- Perhaps I should really pay more
attention to the other Sims at least
