A Bookish Legacy - update October 27, 2020

Postby Anne » November 14th, 2019, 2:43 pm

Hi and welcome to the first installment of A Bookish Legacy! This is the very first time I’m posting any Sims 4 content, but I have been playing it for a few years now. I started this legacy challenge a few years back as well, and I’ve been playing it on and off ever since. I recently started generation 5, and I thought that was a good time to finally start posting!

I wanted a naming theme for my legacy and I went with names of authors I admire or whose books I love (or loved as a child). Hence the name of this legacy! I’ve decided to go for the firstborn rule, which means the firstborn child is always the heir.

-- Updates --

Generation 1
Generation 2
Generation 3
Generation 4
Generation 5 - Part 1

Oh yay, another literature themed legacy!!

Spoiler:
I will admit, I've not heard any of these authors you mentioned, except Roald Dahl... Non-english authors weren't very common when I was a kid. I feel like I went from reading The Hungry Caterpillar to Roald Dahl to Cassandra Clare to Jane Austen LOL. It's really nice how much you loved these amazing authors from when you were a kid, I can't remember any authors from when I was a kid and that kind of upset me. This legacy makes me wanna go back and look up books I used to read as a kid...

I really like Guus' flaming red hair and how CUTE are those pets in TS4. Ugh, I love pets in TS4 so much, they just look precious!


Looking forward to the next gen!!

Thanks for your kind comment! I love literature themed legacies as well, so I'm going to check out yours right after typing this comment!
Spoiler:
I still own a ton of the books I used to read when I was little, so I think that's mostly why I remember them - they're still there! I'm currently rereading a book I'm sure I've read as a child, but I have no recollection of the story whatsoever. It's a Dutch children's book that's been made into an English tv show that's going up on Netfix on Friday (hence why I'm rereading it). It's also been translated: The Letter for the King, by Tonke Dragt. So far I'm loving it again!

The TS4 pets are just amazing - they're so much better than the TS3 one and I think I even like them better than the TS2 pets!


What with the social isolation going on, I think I'll have more time for Sims stuff, so I hope to have a new chapter up soon! Thanks again for the comment, it really made me smile :)

Spoiler:
"He found out Eva was a single music lover..."
Noice
""who hates children."
Not so noice.

Oh, there goes Nobuya. RIP man.

Aww Carry's so stinkin' cute!!

Whoop, Eva left. No surprise here lol.

Oh no, Astrid was next to go! RIP Astrid!!

Carry looks so worried as a child. :(

And now the cat too. Wow. This chapter has a high bodycount!

AND THEN THE MAID DIED TOO!? I'm sorry, I thought I clicked on a nice book-themed legacy, not a CallMeKevin video!! Jim Pickens is responsible for this!! LOL

Oh man, I bet your heart was racing when Carry set herself on fire!

Ah, I'm looking forward to seeing what Carry does with her turn as legacy heir!


A nice little update! Can't wait to read more :D

Thanks, Gray, I'm so glad you're enjoying my updates! :D
Spoiler:
Haha, I was actually very happy when he came across Eva because I figured it fit perfectly with Guus. I think by this point I'd already figured out I wanted him to be a single parent, just because of that mean loner thing, and Eva was the perfect sim to leave him. Yikes, that sounds harsh, lol.
Carry is just the best! <3 I love her, and she was ADORABLE as a toddler.
You're right about the body count, I'm so sorry!! :lol: The maid definitely was a weird thing to happen. But then again, who goes swimming during a blizzard??

Went ahead and read this through Anne. Loved it. Glad I'm not that only one who has been slow about doing much with Sims 4. I just can't seem to get/stay into it for long.
Spoiler:
The kid interactions with parents are cute.
Love that you picked a book theme for your legacy!
I um cracked up that the maid died because she was swimming on the job. Silly sims!
Your new heiress does look like she will be a fun heiress.

Wow, I completely forgot to respond to your comments, sorry mysterymusic!
Spoiler:
I'm so glad you're enjoying the Books! I really do love the Sims 4, but Sims 2 will always be my main love :)
Glad you're liking the theme! I'm a big reader and I wanted to use a fun naming theme for this family, so this seemed like a great fit!


It's been a while, but there's a new update: Generation 4!

Gen 4
Spoiler:
Oh my God, I can't believe I've missed so much of this legacy!

Damn, it sucks that you named your sim after such a horrible person ;; Hopefully Joanne is a nicer person in soul and spirit than her namesake :)

Oh boy, alien baby! I only have alien babies when I force sims to be abducted when I'm playing my evil sim. It's so much fun just watching them get whizzed up into the air without any idea.

I guess fitness sims just like to eat cake more because they know they'll burn it off later or something. Maybe it motivates him to work out lmfao!?


Gen 5 part 1
Spoiler:
Aw Ashaya seems like such a nice young man! Pfft, sounding a bit like a grandma here.

Carry aged so gracefully!

Holy crap Joanne worked so hard she lit the bar on fire!

omg a proposal next to a waterfall!? Joanne's so lucky :O

Carry was waiting for them to come home ;;


Looking forward to reading more!! I wonder how Joanne and Ashaya's kids will turn out!!
