Hollinter on Holiday, A Le-gay-cy: Chapter 1 (20/02/19)

Postby Heather » February 20th, 2019, 8:39 pm

Once again, I'm reviving my Hollinter family to take another stab at finishing their legacy challenge. I still haven't gotten around to installing the second game on my laptop, and I was having so many problems with their lot crashing on my old laptop that I doubt I would have even been able to pick up where I left off on my new machine.

So, this time around I'll be starting over once more, with my generation 1 heiress as my legacy founder. I've also decided to flex my creative writing muscles a little, and format my chapters journal/letter style. If you’d like the full backstory for this family, you can read it here, otherwise it should (hopefully) be simple enough for new readers to jump in. :)

The twist this time, as indicated by the title, is that it's a Legaycy, in which all of my heirs will be marrying and having kids with same-sex partners. Mostly because I'm still pretty closeted myself, and being able to play gay sims just makes me happy.

I'm excited to see the Hollinters again! I've been following them since their sims 2 legacy. Halley and Luna are really cute together, and I can't wait to see what little Rigel looks like when he grows up. :grin:

Yay, another returning fan! <3
Spoiler:
I took a sneak peek at Rigel's genetics (as a kid/teen/adult), and all I can say is I'm super impressed with how genetics are working out in sims 4 so far!

As of the last royalty report, 'Get This Thing Out of Me' is currently making the most. I was hoping it'd be 'Cunning Linguistics', I was the most proud of that one. :lol:

Ooooh, a gay legacy? YES.

Spoiler:
Oh my God, I love Halley and Luna. They're so cute. <3 And Rigel is a delightful shade of green that I hope mellows out as he ages. :lol:

I love the book titles and descriptions that Halley is writing. They made me laugh. :lol:

Oh yes, the alien baby green is disgusting but thankfully it always mellows out to something nicer, haha. I snuck a peek at what he looks like as an adult and he's very handsome (imo, anyways :lol:), so I am excited!

Haha I'm glad people find them amusing; I just kinda stare at my laptop for a few minutes and write the first thing that comes to mind.
