Chapter 23 – It Must Be Love

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Bookabet Legacy. It’s been a while since the last update but I have the perfect excuse! I’ve just come back from two weeks in Orlando, Florida. I had an awesome (but very tiring) time doing all of the theme parks but I’m now very jet lagged considering the nine hour flight and five hour time difference from the US to the UK. It was well worth it though. Last time Arya, Anita and Asriel all had dates at the same time and as a consequence, I lost my mind. Luckily, I’ve since found it so here is another update.


Last time, I was kind enough to leave the founder in the throes of labour with her sixth (and final) child. Why she’s in the boys room I have no idea.




And so Ceridwen and Franco head to hospital amid all of the confusion in the house at present.

Artemis: Who or what is that? I sense a disturbance in the force.

Gelert: Agreed dear. Let me gather the troops and we’ll bark at it until it goes away!


Gelert: Ok kids. I don’t like the look of that one. Don’t let him in the house.

Asriel: You’ve got to be kidding guys. This is rubbish. What is your problem with my friend? He’s hot.

Ceridwen: Asriel. Will you please tell your friend to move from the front door so that I can go and have a baby?

Apparently, even though the Bookabet dog pack have no problems with evil Asriel, they take exception to Forest. His brand of evil is a little bit too much for them to handle!


Gelert: My wife and kids may not care about my families safety, but I won’t give up.

Forest: That dog of yours is starting to annoy me. You won’t like me when I’m annoyed and I need a dog for my latest … experiment.


Gelert: *Gulp* Maybe I should steer clear of this one. He sounds like he bites worse than me.

Asriel: I do find your threats very attractive Forest, but a word of advice. Don’t touch Gelert. The creator is very attached to him and she controls the universe.

He’s right. I do at that.

Speaking of Asriel, he’s really been rolling the wishes for Forest. I don’t know if this is cute or creepy? Maybe a little bit of both?


Anyway, Forest left soon after that and I sent the kids to bed. Dawn broke the next morning and I realised that the baby still hadn’t been born. I clicked on Ceridwen to find out what had happened and I was presented with this. Yes. She’s walking to hospital … in labour and wearing heels. I don’t even …

Ceridwen: I’m getting older and it’s harder to lose the baby weight. I thought I’d get a jump on it.

Franco, by the way, took the family car and was waiting for her at the hospital doors. Apparently, he was so panicked about this final baby that he failed to realise that he’d forgotten the vital component of the labour.


Eventually, after much hair-tearing on my part, Ceridwen, at the point of near exhaustion, arrived at the hospital and gave birth to baby number six. Considering the last update was three weeks ago I’m sure you’re all really anxious to find out the name of baby Bookabet here huh? Well, a little extra wait won’t hurt you Smile with tongue out

Franco: So the baby is finally born. Bedtime now?

Yes. Go home before you both pass out!


Meanwhile, back at the house, Adam is still affected by the creeping glitch. Dude, you aren’t grounded anymore. Get over it already!

Adam: Sssh. I’m practising being a world class secret agent.

Oh. Carry on then.


Asriel is being his (adorably) evil self.

Asriel: Yes! I’ve broken the tub … I can’t wait to be fiendishly delighted by the misery of my sisters when they are unable to bathe themselves! Wait a second … the bathroom seems to be flooding at a speedy rate. What if the rest of the house floods and we all drown? It won’t be half as fun being fiendishly delighted if I’m dead!! Maybe I should get Arya to fix it?

Poor Asriel. Evil and neurotic … what a contradiction he is.


It doesn’t take long for him to make up his mind.


Asriel: *is fiendishly delighted at sisters misery*


Who is this you ask? Why, she’s the daughter of Cocaine Chimeree and my simself all made over. I’m very happy with how Rowan has turned out. Apparently, Alice agrees with me. Despite not knowing each other all that well, the attraction system has decided that they are totally into one another so I sent the good little witch over so they can make friends.


So, I wanted to get the Bookabet teens settled with their prospective partners, but didn’t want a repeat of the three separate dates in three separate locations scenario. So I had the bright idea to invite over Hunter, Forest and Nemo. I figured it would be easier to keep track of the interactions that way.

Forest: So that’s the girl you like?

Hunter: *blushes* Yep. That’s her.

Forest: She’s cute brother. Maybe I should get to know her better?

Don’t you dare. Besides, Arya only has eyes for Hunter. He’s the only one she rolls wishes for.


See what I mean?

Arya: Hello future consort of mine. How fare thee this fine day?

Hunter: Better now that I’ve seen you.

Also, Alice bribed Arya to fix the shower so she’s minty fresh. She and Nemo are also getting their flirt on.


These two really are just too adorable for words. I’ll just warn you now that this update features a lot of Arya/Hunter picture spam.


Arya: One day, you and I shall be married and you shall be the official consort of Queen Arya. We shall rule over the animal kingdom together and all the world shall worship us. Your job will be to tame the royal unicorn. We cannot let Sir Left-Hand find the royal unicorn before us as he will use its purity to destroy me once and for all.


Hunter: I understand my fairy princess. I’ll never let Sir Left-Hand destroy you. We’ll find that unicorn. I wish I didn’t have to leave for work now.

Look at the total adoration on his face. It’s a shame that he has to leave for work already.


But, no sooner had he stepped outside he received a text from Arya.

Arya: The receiver of this text message is granted one make-out from her highness, Princess Arya. The offer stands for one day only.

Hunter: WHAT? Ok then. Time to call in sick to work.

That’s better. Also, it looks like Forest has been kicked out of the house by Gelert again.


Arya: Considering that one will soon be the ruler queen of the animal population of Moonlit Falls, one had better start practicing ones language skills. One’s canine is a little rusty … *Woof Woooof Grrrr Ruff”


Arya: Do you hear that Sir Left-Hand? One is going to rule the animal kingdom so that tyrannical dictators such as yourself cannot hurt them no longer. I will put an end to your evil deeds and there is nothing you can do about it.


Arya: *choking* Maybe there is something you can do about it. Help me my beloved.

Oh dear. This is the first time that Arya has unleashed the crazy in front of Hunter. I’m really hoping he won’t be put of by it.

Hunter: She may be a little different to other girls, but that just makes her more beautiful to me. I guess I’d better go and help her out. Somehow, I don’t think this’ll be the first time.


Hunter: I’ll never let Sir Left-Hand hurt you again.

Arya: You, you saved me from that villain. Such loyalty deserves a reward.

Hunter: Oh?



I’m so happy that Hunter accepts Arya for who she is. He won’t be bored with her in his life, that’s for sure.


Arya: I like you very very much Sir Hunter.


Hunter: I like you more my eccentric little fairy.


This picture needs no words. Although the dirty newspapers in the background kind of spoil the romantic atmosphere a little.


Baby: Enough of this. Introduce me already, and whilst you’re at it, make someone give me a bottle because I’m starving!

Ok. I guess I’ve tortured my readers enough. This little tyke is called Atticus. He’s named after Atticus O’Sullivan from the Iron Druid series by Kevin Hearne, a funny urban fantasy book series that I’ve recently discovered and devoured. It’s full of pop culture references like Star Wars, Star Trek and LOTR and many, many more which appeals to my inner geek and also features a surplus of characters from world mythology which is something that greatly interests me. The series also features a sarcastic and hilarious talking dog with a great sense of humour. Enough said. The other reason that I love the name is because the main character, who chooses the name for himself, chose it because of the character in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee (another book I read a long time ago). So, in essence, little Atticus Bookabet is a character named after a character who is named after a character. This amuses me greatly.

Little Atticus loves R&B, firecracker Shrimp and the colour green. His traits are perceptive and disciplined like his big brother Adam. I can see Atticus following Adam around in the future whilst begging him to teach him some martial arts. I also think that this little guy will make a fantastic PI someday.


Alice: How long has this baby been here? And why is he crying?

Atticus: I don’t know … maybe it’s because I’m HUNGRY and WET. Feed me already!!! I perceive that my older siblings are idiots!


The other potential love interests have buggered off  gone home now, but not Hunter. The evening is upon us and they are still flirting and kissing outside. Not that I’m complaining. I don’t think Nymeria is very happy with this development though.


Arya: So, does you agree to ones official consort? Obviously, one is too young to get married just yet but I’ll settle for you being my boyfriend at the moment.


Sealed with a kiss. There’s no backing out now. Who’s sick of the Arya/Hunter sweetness overload? Tough. Have some more


Even Eika thinks this couple is adorable. They are just so perfect together … thanks for creating him Susan. I’m so glad that he has no problem with the crazy side of Arya … but she also has another side. Being a fairy, she loves pranks …



Hunter: What?! WHERE?!


Arya: Here! Take this.

Hunter: Huh? What is this?

Apollo: I can’t believe he fell for that.

Me either. I almost can’t bear to watch. Arya might have just ruined the best thing to ever happen to her. Sorry Susan!


Hunter: OMG! Where’d my trousers go?!

Arya: I’m not complaining.

Neither would I if I weren’t holding my breath. Poor Hunter.


Hunter: You’re funny sweetheart. If you wanted my trousers off, all you had to do was ask!

Arya: My way is much better.

PHEW! He was actually ok with being pranked. He must be in love! They actually got positive relationship points out of it which is a big relief, but I’d better keep an eye on the naughty little fairy here. Poor Hunter doesn’t deserve to be pranked all the time.

That’s all I have time for at the moment, but here are some Story Progression updates before I go. There aren’t actually that many as my townies are being quiet at the moment. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the SP mod as it works perfectly well in my other save files, but who knows?

All of the neighbourhood men want to get to know Ceridwen better. She’s very happily married with six kids. I think it’s safe to shy that she’s not interested!

TS3W 2013-03-15 20-22-02-88TS3W 2013-03-15 20-21-09-98

I wish things were going as well for Anita in the romance department. I think it might be time for her to start looking elsewhere. She’s already had a falling out with her friend over Nemo. Damn you Nemo!

TS3W 2013-03-25 22-09-34-83

Considering that the real Sky Sample and Adam are best friends and band mates in the Sample a Brave blog, I thought that this was a very interesting development. Just what is it with the Bookabet and Sample kids? Hearts are farting all over the place!

TS3W 2013-03-15 20-23-06-84

Zeke isn’t so much of an old perve in this game file as an old nerd. At least he’s found something more productive to do with his spare time.

TS3W 2013-03-25 22-52-31-07

Maybe if Zeke had spent more time with his wife, she would have left him something in her will. At least the kids were taken care of. This makes me sad though. RIP Gwyn

Anyway, that’s enough from me at the moment. Next time, Ceridwen, Atticus and Adam will all have birthdays. I can safely say that Asriel isn’t the only good looking sim in the family … Adam? Wowza! Bye guys!

    It’s so much fun watching Hunter in love! He really does have one of the most expressive faces I’ve seen on a sim. I’m not sure how that works on a technical level, but it’s a lot of fun to watch!

    It really does seem like Hunter should marry a fairy. Sadly, there are none in Avalon to date, so he’ll have to do it here :).

    “Hearts are farting all over the place!” That made me laugh. Adam and Sky are of course not firing attraction hearts in my game because Sky is all about the girls, but she does roll the most wishes to hang out with them. You might say they are platonic lifemates :).

      I could stare at Hunter all day because of the expressions he pulls. I’ve always thought Arya had a very expressive face as well, but Hunter trumps her. I can’t imagine what their children will look like … in fact, I want to go into CAS and have a look! I’m very excited about the genetic possibilities though 🙂

      I agree with you. Hunter is the perfect spouse for Arya. He is so in awe of the supernatural and is so calm and trusting, it makes sense that he would fall for one. As you said, if the real Hunter can’t marry one, at least you can watch his doppleganger marry one instead!

      I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s something in the water, but each of the triplets has a crush on a Bookabet kid in my save file. What I do know is that Adam and Sky are clearly meant to be best mates, regardless of the blog they’re in.

    Hunter and Arya are adorable. I love watching them together!

    Forest and Asriel, on the other hand, are just scary. That’s a lot of evil right there.

    I’m sorry that Nemo is such a problem. He really won’t settle down in my game, either. He’s been engaged at least 4 times, but never actually made it to the wedding. Such a player. I think it’s interesting that Gwyn died first in your game, too! Zeke may be a pervy nerd, but he’s got a heck of a lifespan!

    • jolvsbooks says:

      I’ve honestly never played two sims so completely in love. They are completely obsessed with one another and I love to watch it. Especially the expressions Hunter pulls 🙂

      I agree that Forest is many different shades of evil … Asriel, however, isn’t as evil as he would let you believe. I think at heart he’s a little softie (which will all come clear in the next update or two).

      As for the player, prom is coming up so I’ll give him one more chance. Luckily, Anita managed to corner him before he invited anyone else. I would still like his genetics in my family tree!

    Hey. Just started reading your series. Found you from the creeper legacy. Love it! I was just wondering hat all mods you used.

    • jolvsbooks says:

      Hi. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. I love the creeper legacy … so much fun 🙂

      Right, ok. Mods:

      Twallan’s Story Progression, Master Controller, Porter, Decensor, Overwatch, Traveller (I think I’ve still that installed), Woohooer. I also usually have the Plum Painting Replacement Mod installed as well (I think that’s what it’s called). I think that’s all of them 🙂

      • Nickey says:

        Thanks. I recognized twallans, but I loved the extra little story progression add ons you had. I’ve used a few of them before. I think it’s really added fun to your story.
