1.03 – Party Time! …Or Not?


Josh really did have a good day. Look how happy he was!



Alright, now it’s time for some authors notes!

  • First of all, I would like to apologize for it being so dark when I took the park pictures. Not sure how that happened. It was 4pm and the weather was set to “Sunny.” Doesn’t look too sunny to me!
  • This chapter was obviously a little different, much sillier than the other ones. They won’t all be like this, but some will. πŸ™‚ Hope you liked it!
  • This is kind of a turning point in the story. Before this, it was telling Josh’s back-story, now it’s narrating what’s going on in my game with a story-telling twist. So, it might take some experimenting to get used to. Particularly the time, I’m not sure how much time should pass in a chapter. But I think I’ll just go wherever the story takes me!

Now it’sΒ time forΒ more questions for you guys! I know how much you all love that! You don’t have to answer all (or any) of the questions, but if you have an opinion on something and would like to share, please do. πŸ™‚

Would you guys like to see the mansion better?

Would you like Josh (and others) to be on the exchange? If so, with cc or no cc?

On this chapter, I was planning to not show Katelyn at all. I would have used some other creative way to get screen-shots, but I was going to let you guys guess who the mom was as the child got older. Is this something that sounds fun to you? Don’t be afraid to say no, I’m just playing with ideas here. πŸ™‚

  1. Ohhh yey!
    Josh got to be ‘happy’ after all πŸ˜‰

    I’d like to see the mansion. I like building houses myself so it would be fun to see what yours looks like!
    And the guessing the mother thing sounds fun. Adds another interactive level to the story πŸ™‚

    • For now. πŸ˜‰ Hehehe. I’m not good at building….at all. Haha, but I thought some of you might like to see where Josh lives. πŸ™‚ Thanks! If enough people like it, I’ll definetly do it. I wanted to in the first place, but the interactive poll I put up came out 50-50, so I wasn’t sure what to do. Thanks for reading! ❀

  2. β€œDo you have a library card? β€˜Cause I’m checking you out!”

    β€œAre you a parking ticket? Because you’ve got fiiine written all over you”

    I was actually laughing out loud, which I never do when I read! I’m glad this chapter is more lighthearted. I can’t wait to see what the baby looks like!

    Yeah, it would be nice to see the mansion better.
    I think they should be uploaded to the exchange with and without custom content. And for the with put links to where you got it.
    And the whole “Guess who’s the Mom” idea seems really fun. I would like that.

    • Hahaha glad I could make you laugh! πŸ™‚ I’m really happy you liked this chapter, I wasn’t sure about it. The baby turns out to be a cutie!

      I think I’ll do a quick tour of the mansion in a mini-update. Maybe tomorrow. Yay! I didn’t think people would be too interested in that, but I think it sounds pretty fun too. πŸ™‚

  3. Would you guys like to see the mansion better?:
    I would appreciate a quick house tour.

    Would you like Josh (and others) to be on the exchange? If so, with cc or no cc?:
    I love seeing sims from stories I read in my game, I prefer no CC. I also prefer .sim format to .sims3pack format.

    The pick up lines made me laugh. I’m looking forward to seeing the baby.

    • Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚ I think I will put them on the exchange. Though, I’m not putting Josh on there until the next generation takes over. But for now, people can have some of the minor charactors if they want them. I’m super happy I could bring a little laughter to your day! Hoped you enjoyed reading. πŸ™‚

  4. Oh, Josh is such a ham. XD His pickup lines were just ridiculous I’m surprised he attracted a girl at all.

    I like seeing Sims up on the exchange, I don’t always download them, but I just like being able to share them – and to have them up on the site just in case my computer crashes and I loose all of the characters. If so, I wouldn’t advise putting them up with cc, just stuff that can be found in the game.

    I’d also like to see the house in more detail.

    Finally, the final bit about not seeing Katelyn – it’s actually a pretty good idea! Something to keep the readers guessing!

    • lol it must be his dashing smile that she just couldn’t resist. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for reading, and replying to all of my questions! It means a lot to me. πŸ™‚ Hopefully I’ll have a tour of the house ready for you today! And I’m glad you like my idea, I really wanted to do it but wasn’t sure if many people would like it.

  5. Those lines were hilarious. Woohoo in the elevator? Frisky! haha. So the pregnancy thing is following the sims rules right? 3 days until she pops? Is there any chance the baby really isn’t his? I really hope she doesn’t decide to milk him for his money or that she suddenly wants to keep the child. Anywho, I wish there were more chapters to read. I really like this story. πŸ™‚ As for the other questions presented I think it would be great to upload to the exchange (I rarely use it though) and when you say “see the mansion better” do you mean show screenshots of a tour of the house? That would be cool.

    • Yes, I decided to follow the Sims rules of a 3 day pregnancy instead of the real life 9-month one. It (obviously) seems more unrealistic this way, but I just feel like I’d have to skip over soo much time if I was going with the traditional 9 months. You’ll just have to wait and see what happens! I update every Monday. (wordpress time)

      Yes, I do mean a quick tour of the house via screenshots. I’m a pretty crappy builder, so it’s just one of those box houses lol. But it might be nice for some of you to see where Josh is living.

      • Yeah it’s something I’m debating for my story (not happening yet though) as well. Every chapter takes a few sim days so I was wondering how I could possibly drag out her pregnancy. lol.

      • Well, for me, I can always add events to chapters if I want to make it longer. It doesn’t have to be huge or dramatic, or even about the pregnancy, but just little entertaining things here and there. or maybe add something that doesn’t seem important now, but might be later. Or just talk about what’s going on in Josh’s head! But there’s just something about saying “And 6 months later…” that I don’t like. That’s a huge chuck of their life that I’m just skipping out on. A lot can happen in that time! So that’s why I decided on Sim days. I’m sure you’ll do great with whatever you decide on, though. πŸ™‚

  6. Haha, funny new chapter! I loved the pickup lines…
    Unfortunately, it seems like Josh is a little bit too much like his father. Let me guess, is he a hopeless romantic? Flirty? Family oriented? Anyways, I understand he wants a son as a remembrance of Michael, but doesn’t that mean he just isn’t letting go of his past? Including, wouldn’t that be an awkward thing to explain to his son later on (if he ever did)?
    Anyways, I hope Kaetyln (not sure if I spelt that right) changes her ways. She is quite a vain person. While I am not sure if I want her and Josh to get together… I at least want her to be around her child. BTW, what expansion packs do you have? Are you excited for University Life? Also, do you have any Stuff Packs? I don’t, I find them kind of a waste of money even though some of the items look cool.

    • Oi! I forgot to answer your questions. Here you go:
      Would you guys like to see the mansion better?
      Erm, I’m not much of a Sim house builder- or builder at all(might be able to tell from my Sims house) but I’m sure some other simmers do.
      Would you like Josh (and others) to be on the exchange? If so, with cc or no cc?
      Sure! Probably no CC, just to make it less of a hassle for most. But if there is something vital to him which is CC (like hair for example) then go ahead. Maybe I could input him into my game somehow. Then we could do a crossover ;)! Of course, my writing would never match up to yours and I would take up like five chapters about it (I mean come on, who else has twelve chapters and has barely progressed in Generation 1)? The main reason I haven’t updated in a while is that I was working SOOO hard (like two hours) on a house for a very poor family I was planning on bringing into the story, and the game wouldn’t save and crashed so I have kind of have been holding a grunge on the game :/!

    • Oh gosh. I’m sorry. 😦 I do the same thing. If my game crashes and I lose a day (which isn’t thatttt long) I hold of playing that save again for the longest time, just because I don’t want to re-play that day or have another crash, lol. I don’t mind a lot of chapters being in gen 1, I like it actually. πŸ™‚ Plus your chapters are a litttle shorter than some others I’ve seen, so that’s understandable. Hahaha but a cross-over would be cool! And I look forward to seeing your next update! πŸ™‚

      Yes, Josh is a bit like his father. Though I hope that doesn’t make you hate him, he has his good and bad sides. He doesn’t just want a son because of Michael, but also because he kind of now (because of what happened to him and his upbringing) has a thing again girls. And I’m stopping there, because I don’t want to give TOO much away. πŸ™‚

      I have Seasons, Pets, Ambitions, Late Night, and Generations. No stuff packs, I don’t need them. I have my cc πŸ˜‰ haha. I’m not sure about University life yet, I haven’t read too much on it. I LOVED the sims 2 expansion for it, but I have some concerns for the Sims 3. I’m hoping for the best, though!

  7. This chapter was great! I loved that Josh finally got to have some fun, even though he got Katelyn pregnant. Didn’t take long did it!lol!
    The pick up lines were hilarious, they made me giggle! I’d probably laugh in a blokes face if they were said to me. Does Josh want a boy so he can replace Michael?
    I’d like to see what the mansion looks like, especially if you built and decorated it. It would be nice to show off your hard work:)
    I think you should put your sims up on the exchange, they’re great looking sims I’m sure they’d be popular.
    I’d like to be able to guess who people are in your story, that would be pretty cool:)
    Great job on this chapter, it was great!

    • Hahaha yeah, generation 2 comes pretty fast! Glad I could make you laugh! πŸ™‚ Josh isn’t looking to replace Michael exactly. There’s a few reasons he wants a boy. He kind of has a thing against woman now, after all that happened to him. He thinks he’ll be able to connect with a boy a lot more. But there’s no doubt that he also wants back what he had with Michael.

      I posted a tour of the house yesterday. πŸ™‚ Aww thank you so much! I really appreciate it! I’ll probably put Sims up on the exchange this weekend. And I’m glad you like the idea! Thanks for reading and commenting. πŸ™‚

  8. Loving the humor in this – pick up lines were great! Well written. As for putting your sims on the exchange I’ve noticed some people putting up 2 versions- one with & one with out cc-

    • He had a little TOO much fun that day. x) I’m so honored that you took the time to read my legacy. It means so much to me! And I’m double honored that you enjoyed it and commented. πŸ™‚ As I’ve mentioned before, a lot of people with big sim stories tend to forget about everything but their own. It’s so cool that you still take the time to do these things! Thanks so much!

  9. Let’s see… want to see the mansion? Yes please! ^^ Would be fun to see just how big the mansion is and such… ^^
    Exchange? I don’t know. Maybe in the future, when Josh have a little more kids.

    Dangit Josh! Just hit on a girl, woohoo a little then BAAM! Baby! That was the fast I must say. One day, sleep with someone, then the next “Guess what? I’m pregnant. Your baby.” I think i laughed at that. Not realistic, but good anyway πŸ™‚ Maybe it will become babies instead of baby…. *evil smile* eheheh….

    • I did put a tour of the mansion up already, so you can go take a look at it any time you want! πŸ™‚

      Haha yes, it was definitely fast. Probably a little toooo fast, but this is a Sims legacy after all! I decided to go with Sim time for pregnancies because I really didn’t want to say something like “And 4 months later…” because that is such a big chunk of their life to just skip. Though I still probably could have waited a little longer to get a girl pregnant. πŸ˜‰
