C1.21– Love Hearts and Lusty Teens

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Bookabet Legacy. Last time, the Bookabet family enjoyed a day in the sun, Artemis stole a Hodgins and Asriel was scared of monsters.


What are you doing out here all alone Stelmaria?

Stelmaria: The master has me on monster watch. I’m supposed to let the monsters eat me instead of him. I don’t mind, but I wish it wasn’t so cold and wet out here though.


Looks like Eika isn’t cold and wet. I noticed that despite not having not returned from hunting, her energy level was increasing. When I clicked on her, I discovered that she was curled up in front of the fire at one of the supernatural hangouts. I’m pretty sure it’s the fairy one … or the vampire one? Anyway, she looks so peaceful here, I didn’t bother disturbing her. Besides, this chair is probably more comfortable than the ones at home!


In other news, I’ve decided to remodel the house. I’m not happy with how boxy it looks at the moment, but this is a work in progress. I have a grand master house plan in my head so I’m going to be adding on to it as and when funds permit. Eventually, it’ll have an upstairs and the yellow bedroom on the left will be a garage/activity room. I’ve never said I was a great house builder, but I hope it’ll look nicer as time goes by. I do quite a bit of redecoration in the next couple of chapters, so don’t get confused if the house background changes quite a bit!


Ceridwen: So shiny

That’s it Ceridwen. Keep on cutting those gems! The gem cutter is one of the most useful things that I’ve bought. Six hunting dogs tend to bring back a lot of goodies between them, and this machine really saves time. The only downside is that it’s really loud, which is why it’s not in the main family room. Also, mental note, the study needs more light.


Resident artist Franco has completed the first heir portrait. This is actually his second attempt, and I’m quite happy with this one. It would obviously look better if I had more lights in the house though. *sigh* Mental note #2.


Franco: Here’s a present for you honey. I know it isn’t your birthday, but some random great uncle sent it to me. Arya got the last one, but I thought you could make use of this one.

Alice: Is …. is that what I think it is? Dad, you’re the best!


Alice: It is what I thought it was!!!! I can’t wait to use this power to save the world. Asriel can’t cross me now.

I love the gifting system. I can’t remember who sent me this one, but thank you to whoever did! Alice has been wishing to join the world of witchery since she first discovered the alchemy station in the Vault of Antiquity. One wish granted.


You know how I might have mentioned a couple of times now how the dogs LOVE Alice? I wasn’t joking. Although now I’m wondering if that’s because she bribes them with poultry.

Eika: Zzzz Give me the chicken already Zzzz

Gelert: Zzzz Get in line pup Zzzz


Of course, not all of the dogs are patient enough to wait for their breakfast.

Artemis: Oy, you with the wings. Wake up and feed me already!


Ceridwen: BLEUGH! I can’t remember the last time I felt this bad.

I sure can Winking smile


Ceridwen misses Asriel’s teen birthday with all that unfortunate throwing up. Luckily for him, his dad and older siblings are there to cheer the little mastermind into teen hood.

Asriel: I wish for … an army of non-imaginary imaginary friends. And a zombie minion or two.


Asriel: World domination is suddenly so much closer!!!


Asriel: Oh yeah. I’m cool.

Oh my … Asriel … I don’t know what to say. You look … different. He chose this look all by himself. I’m so tempted to leave him this way, but it doesn’t match his personality unfortunately. Besides, he looks like a member of the village people.

Anyway, with Asriel’s transition, Ceridwen finally achieves her lifetime want. Go me! Or go Ceridwen I guess.



His new trait is neurotic. I know I was supposed to give him the bookworm trait, but a couple of people have asked if they can download him and age him to adult, and so I needed to know what all five traits would be. When he rolled neurotic, I couldn’t resist giving it to him now as it just suits him completely. He will definitely get Bookworm as an adult. An evil, eccentric, neurotic heavy sleeper? This will be fun!


Asriel has grown up VERY well indeed. I must say I am extremely impressed, and I believe that is what they call a smolder. If a slightly evil one.


Asriel isn’t the only one with a birthday that night. Franco makes the transition into full adult. Spoiler, he looks exactly the same as an adult. Just a few more lines on that sexy face of his.

Meanwhile, Belisama Hemlock is obsessed with each of the Bookabet kids. My computer ate a load of my Fraps screenshots when I had the virus, and the Belisama Hemlock ones were among the victims. I got notifications that she had a crush on Adam, Arya, Anita and Alice. Clearly, she isn’t fussy which member of the Bookabet clan she gets! Belisama has recently broken up with Jodie Goode, Adams childhood friend and the daughter of Goodwin Goode. Jodie responded to the breakup with this:

TS3W 2012-11-22 11-02-01-38

Too bad that Anita is straight. Otherwise, I’d definitely consider it. Adam is still seeing Bailey Swain, but she’s grown up now and she doesn’t come over anymore. She’s clearly gotten over her stalkerish tendencies.  I’m thinking of finding someone else for our Adam as he doesn’t roll any wants for her. He’s completely straight though. As for the rest of the Bookabet kids, I’ve checked master controller, and I know their preferences as well. You’ll find out what they are later.

Speaking of Adam …


Adam: Wh … wh … WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?

Huh. It’s not like Adam to look so scared. Wonder what he’s so frightened of?




Adam: You don’t want to know what they did to me up there!

Poor baby. Luckily he can’t get pregnant yet. One pregnant sim in the house is enough …


Ceridwen: Hello baby. Where did you come from?

Anita: You’ve got to be kidding right?

No, I’m not kidding. Ceridwen and Franco both wished to have another baby, and like a fool, I gave in. Besides, I’ve just finished a book series that I’ve seriously enjoyed, and I have the greatest boys name. Yes, this baby is going to be a boy. It all works out very well, as Ceri immediately rolled a wish for a boy. Go on producing those magic apples Alice.


Ceri: So, honey. Looks like we’ll need to get the baby toys back out of the attic.

Franco: Really! That’s fantastic. *rolls wish for boy*

Excellent. My plans are coming together nicely.


Maybe Franco isn’t quite as relaxed about the idea as I initially thought.

Franco: If five kids cost this much, then how much will six kids cost?

I’m asking the exact same thing.


How’d this get in here? Moving on …

This is where I installed University Life and got all the store content problems. I thought a nice picture of my simself being arrested would mark the occasion nicely.


Anita decides to test her new smart phone by sending a secret admirer text to Nemo Hodgins.

Anita: Nemo, ur so cute. I ❤ u 4eva xxx

Not content with that, she heads to the Hodgins house to visit and/or stalk him.


Whilst there, Puzzle, being his usual pervy self, decides to cross normal social boundaries.

Anita: Hey, dude. What’s your problem?

Puzzle: Why isn’t my Puzzle pheromone working on this chick? She should be falling all over me by know.

Puzzle, step away from the teenager.


Puzzle isn’t the only creepy member of the Hodgins family. Gwyn isn’t ready to let her baby go yet.

Gwyn: He’s much too young to date. These kids clearly need a chaperone.

Anita: So, I like you despite the fact that your family members are acting really weird. So, you seeing anyone at the moment?


Anita, being inappropriate, feels no shame in diving in for a kiss so quickly.

Nemo: What are you doing? Can’t you see I’m exhausted?

Poor Anita. As soon as she heads home, I get this notification.

TS3W 2013-03-15 18-27-18-39



Oh well, Anita isn’t the only one working on her love life. I don’t know where she got that broomstick though.

Alice: It’s amazing what they can squeeze into those elixir bottles these days.


Alice has decided that if she can’t find Mr Right, she’ll try Ms Right instead. Actually, according to MC, Alice is the only one of the kids who is bisexual. She has a higher attraction for women than men though. Here she is trying to chat up one of her classmates, Zoe Durwood, a fellow witch.

Zoe: OMG! That panda is so cute!!!



Never mind Asriel, it’s time for you to go and meet the new neighbours. So, I finally managed to download and install another one of my favourite legacy families, the Samples, and I sent over Arya and Asriel to meet the new neighbours.


Asriel immediately gravitated over to the evil guy, without any prompting for me. I personally think that evil sims have some kind of Radar of Evil.

Asriel: Look here you. I have plans to take over the world, and if you get in my way, then my army of minions will have to destroy you.

Forest: Taking over the world sounds like a great plan. If you use my mind-control device, we can achieve world domination so much sooner.

Asriel: What a guy. I’ll name the first monster that I create after you.

TS3W 2013-03-15 17-57-50-16

The second he meets Forest, he rolls this for his LTW. That’s not the only notification I got from these two:

TS3W 2013-03-15 17-59-42-93TS3W 2013-03-15 17-53-18-35

Forest likes Asriel even though he’s all burned from failing at the chemistry set. I can’t work out if these two make a cute or creepy couple? Also, I have no idea why Asriel is still showing as a kid on his sim panel. As you can see for yourselves, he is definitely not a child. Theirs weren’t the only hearts flying around …


Arya: Hello. You must be the prince I ordered? Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Princess Arya, and you, sir will be marrying me one day.

Hunter: Ummm … h … h … hello?

You can’t fool me Hunter. I can see those love hearts … and this:

TS3W 2013-03-15 18-00-24-33

Now, be easy on Hunter Arya. This one is shy and quiet and I absolutely adore him.


Hunter: That’s new. Most girls don’t do that do they?


Hunter: Hey, where’d you go?

Arya: Try and catch me future Prince Hunter.

Hunter: Fairy girls are so much fun!!

Awwww. These two are so cute! And I love Hunter so much. You have no idea how conflicted this made me as I’d already chosen Arya’s spouse, and was planning on introducing him when Arya reached her young adult birthday. I might as well admit it now. I’m no longer conflicted. Arya clearly knows who she wants and I tend to grant my sim’s wishes when I can and I can’t see her with anyone else now. In case anyone is interested, the sim I’d picked out for her was Big Macintosh Olympus from the Olympus Legacy. That just isn’t going to happen now.


Adam, upon hearing that the Grand Martials Arts Master Charles Sample had moved to town, decided to come over and meet his idol. At first, Charles didn’t want to know. He is a famous celebrity after all. Undaunted, Adam decided to butter him up with the song that he learned in China. This impressed him slightly ….


…. although, to be honest, he seemed more impressed by all those gross videos on simtube.

I can’t wait until Adam can spar with Charles. Adam will definitely get his behind handed to him when that happens.

Ok. This update is getting really long, so I think I’ll finish up for now. Will Ceridwen have her baby? Will Anita finally get Nemo to commit? Will Arya and Hunter kill you with their cuteness? Will Asriel and Forest kill you and turn you into a Zombie? Find out next time on the Bookabet Legacy.

Bye guys.

    Hi there! I believe this is my first comment here, I just wanted to say I really like your legacy, your sims are such characters- I love it! Surprise baby FTW! Evil sims falling in love, um, plotting together! And Miz Arya- OMG that is one of the lovelyest sim smiles I’ve ever seen that she put on Hunter’s face! **Breaks exclaimation point**

    I can’t remember how I stumbled onto your blog, I desperately follow links on blogs trying to find good stuff, stuff that has more that 3 chapters, and lo and behold I found one, and then you led me to the Samples, who I’ve been reading all week. And now they are here, spreading the love in your story. I think I ❤ you a bit.

    Really loving your story, thanks for all the hard work, C

    ps, I'm starting an Apocalypse challege, just got the first post up, if you like you could look at it later (I'm brand new to WordPress, and the battle between it and me is epic, it is, so you might want to wait a few days to see who's ahead).

    • jolvsbooks says:

      Awww. Aren’t you lovely 🙂 Thanks for commenting and such a lovely one too. You should also try Dragonwife’s Wishacy and the Simmentary Legacy … they’re both awesome!

      I’m very happy about the Hunter-Arya development. It wasn’t planned, but I’m glad it happened as they are so cute together. I can’t wait to see how their relationship progresses. As for Asriel and Forest, they were either destined to become best friends or mortal enemies. You never know what will happen with evil sims!!

      I try to give each of my characters some screen time, but it’s easier with certain characters … I know I haven’t given the twins the screen time they deserve 😦

      I’ll definitely check your apocalypse challenge out. I have great respect for those brave souls who try it! I know I couldn’t!!! As for WordPress, I know how frustrated I was when I first tried it out… Now that I’ve made an ally of Windows Live Writer, I feel like I’m the one in charge XD

  2. Susan says:

    OMG! I almost died of sugar shock when I saw the look of pure joy on Hunter’s face when Arya cast her, ahem, spell on him. And I have to say that you did a great job with hairs for everyone and skintones for Charles and Sky (I noticed Sky photobombing Adam and Charles there…)

    Forest and Asriel? I didn’t see that coming! I wonder if they’ll fall in love or blow each other up — Forest with magic and Asriel with chemistry. At least they don’t both want to be Emperor of Evil. Too bad Asriel doesn’t want to be a ghost hunter. That would be right up his alley :).

    And Oh My, did Asriel age up hot. I am advancing his age in my game to better match how old he should be in relationship to his siblings. They’re actually just a little bit older than they are in the this post, which is kind of funny. I hadn’t seen his teen face yet.

    The Bookabets are much more age-offset from the Samples in my game, which is too bad, though of course Adam is getting a major secondary role in the angst department.

    Franco and Ceridwen are having another kid? Are they INSANE???

    • jolvsbooks says:

      Franco and Ceridwen aren’t the insane ones … I am. Well, maybe they are insane for rolling the wish in the first place! I only agreed to it because I wanted to use the name I’d found.

      If you think their first meeting is sickly sweet, wait until you see their first kiss. They are one of my new favourite sim couples and I’m very excited about the next generation. He must have put a spell on her as well as she’s obsessed with him.

      I told you Forest was gay!! That relationship is cute in a terrifying way. I think with Forest’s magic and ruthlessness, and Asriel’s eccentricity, they’ll have no problems with world domination!! I can see Forest being the mastermind and Asriel being the mad scientist behind the scenes building the Zombie army. Good luck Earth.

      Thanks. We must have quite a bit of the same store content, as I didn’t have to change much. Hunter and Sky got the new University Life ‘dreads as they were similar to the styles they’re supposed to wear. As for the skin tones, I simply chose a custom skin tone of my own that was a similar colour. It’s not perfect, but it’ll do 🙂

      I couldn’t believe my eyes when Asriel grew up … I mean, where did those looks come from?! Most men would kill for that bone structure! Facially, he’s a nice mix between his parents.

      Adam isn’t much younger than the triplets in your file right? He’s about to age up in mine 😦 I haven’t checked the triplets exact age yet, but I’ll be aging Hunter up alongside Arya and moving him in as he’s probably younger. I’ll probably send Adam, Arya and Hunter to uni together, but I haven’t decided yet.

    • Susan says:

      Adam’s actually the same age as the triplets. He aged up the night before their birthday. I’ve played a decent amount ahead at this point because the Gen 5 story got really interesting (teaser!) and Arya is an adult now and engaged to highschool sweetheart Garry Crumplebottom — who despite being on the Gen 4 level of the family tree is only about 4 days older than the triplets. Shanni had just given birth to him when Charles and Veronica got married, and they were days away from their Adult birthdays, so they didn’t waste any time.

      This means there’s a possibility Arya could enter the story, since Sky hangs out with Garry. But the two of them are pretty cute together, and I wouldn’t want to see any drama.

      You know, Hunter really should marry a fairy. Forest might be the one into black magic, but Hunter’s always been the one fascinated by innocent natural magic. His LTW is Adopt a Unicorn after all. Too bad there are no fairies in Avalon to date, nor any other supernaturals other than vampires. I intend to introduce them very slowly.

      • jolvsbooks says:

        That’s probably where the attraction lies. Arya loves being outside, fishing and adopting random stray animals. The fairy is the supernatural most connected to the wild so they fit perfectly, as do their LTW. I can imagine them setting up some kind of home for stray and abandoned animals. Not to mention a unicorn ranch … hey, there’s an idea. The one thing I have yet to do is have Arya talk ‘crazy’ at him. I need to see if he can handle it as she’s a lot to handle!!! It sounds like one person who can handle the crazy is Garry Crumplebottom. I wondered how she’d do in free will, so I’m glad she’s happy and found someone to love her and accept her for who she is. Hunter is doing well so far though 🙂

  3. Dragonwife says:

    Asriel is gorgeous! I kind of think that you should have left him in the village people wear, though, that was just too fun! His relationship with Forest should be pretty interesting…

    I love love love the idea (and also the “reality”) of Arya and Hunter! So cute. Hunter deserves a little fairy magic in his life.

    Nemo needs to get his act together! He’s kind of a player all over, apparently, but I definitely think he should settle down somewhere. Puzzle is suitably pervy, though.

    Another baby? Yikes!

    • jolvsbooks says:

      I agree. I still can’t get over how gorgeous he is and I’ve had a couple of weeks to get used to it! Luckily though, he’s one of those guys who doesn’t realise how handsome he is. His head is too full of plans for that. I was so tempted to keep him in that outfit, but leather and dangerous chemicals don’t mix. I might give it back him as a secondary outfit though … I have a feeling Forest will appreciate it 😉

      I’m so excited about the Arya and Hunter relationship. I don’t know how to explain it, but they just ‘go’ together perfectly. Arya needs someone to calm her down when she gets too ‘crazy’ and hyper, and Hunter is so calm that he’ll be able to do it. I also think that Hunter will benefit having someone as rambunctious and spirited as Arya to coax him out of his shell a bit.

      Nemo is in my bad books at the moment! I shall persevere though!!! Puzzle cracked me up as he backed poor Anita into the tightest corner in the house and then looked affronted when she ignored him. Maybe he’d be more perceptive than Nemo? Gwyn made me laugh though as she stayed glued to that post for Anita’s entire visit … staring at them both.

      Another baby. I’m crazy …

  4. Ahhhh, ermahgard, Sample crossover!!! I like Arya with Hunter, but I LOVE Forest and Asriel! And it’s so neat to see Charles again; this is like two of my favorite tv shows making an episode together! I also love Gwen staring creepily at Anita and Nemo….very Bates Hotel-esque. Freakin’ Nemo though….

    SIXTH baby?! You are so brave.

    • jolvsbooks says:

      Ha! I love cross-pollination in legacies and seeing characters from different stories walking around populating legacy towns. The whole Arya/Hunter thing completely took me by surprise as I had initially picked out a different spouse for her. Still, who am I to stand in the way of true love? I don’t regret it for a moment and Hunter is not only a lot of fun to play, but he balances out her craziness.

      Asriel and Forest were also a surprise … but I can’t exactly call their relationship “adorable”. I love it though!

      As for baby number six … stupid is more like it! Ceridwen wished for a new baby and I had found a name that I just HAD to use! Atticus’ birth actually corresponded with my old pc gving up the ghost for good, so I paid for it.
