The Delaney Legacy - 1.0Posted by mahasen on 2011.06.21 at 23:45
Welcome everyone to my first attempt at posting a legacy. I apologize in advance for the quality of the images, but unfortunately my desktop has a seizure every time I put the settings any higher. So for now, until I can update my system, this is the quality I'll be bringing the Delaney's to you with. But enough of all that, meet Jackson Delaney.
Now just for a quick tour, since it will be over sooner than you think.
The only room not posted here would be the bathroom, considering it's cramped and well...when you've seen one, you've seen them all.
As you can see, he looks so thrilled to be here. And now to subject you to his traits:
His favorite color is red, and he enjoys roots music and pancakes. His lifetime wish is to become a Master Thief. He is also an Aries.
The first task for our founder is to find himself a job, because honestly it's pretty hard for me to have a sim this poor.
Jackson: Here's one...organ donor? *gulp*
Try the one below it, my lovely little decoy.
But with all that said and done, it was time to actually learn something.
Jackson: .....Says you.
I decided to satisfy one of his wishes, since he wanted to meet someone new. But it's probably because he didn't want to stick around in the dump he calls a house.
Because scoping out potential spouses was a far more pressing matter. And honestly I shoved him off in hopes of him finding one of the few appealing women in Twinbrook.
As most of you know, it's very slim pickings.
Jackson: I'm doomed.
Though with some luck he did manage to find two 'lovely' ladies on the other side of the park. Which is why he took it upon himself to say hello.
Jackson: Well hello there my loveli...*coughs*
Jackson: Oh would you look at the time? It was nice meeting you, but it looks like I'm going to be late for work.
You don't work until tomorrow.
Jackson: I left the stove on!
See, I told you it was better this way.
Jackson: I regret nothing.
Sure you don't.
It's time to focus on your career. The least you could do is get a promotion.
Though I do have to say, who wouldn't love that face.
Jackson: OH MY GOD. I ju- nevermind. It's nothing.
Are you sure?
Jackson: I said it was nothing.
But to indulge him some more, I decided it was time to send him to library. Since his selection at home was certainly lacking. Again, we're not here for a wife, Jackson.
I took this moment to wander away, so I can say I was suprised to see how crowded it was when I came back.
Jackson: Excuse me?! Why can't I get through this door?!
THAT would be why. Look at the sign, genius.
Jackson: I still don't understand!
Again, I pushed him to look around for someone else. And what better than a beauty salon?
Though as you can see, she was immune to his charms. It seems like her eyes were practically rolling back into her skull as she listened to him. So it's safe to say she wasn't the one for this legacy.
After spending his day exploring his new hometown, Jackson took it upon himself to introduce himself to his 'neighbors'.
Rosy Whelohff: Which house did you say you lived in?
Jackson: I just moved in with the Bakers. Thanks for letting me use your phone.
Now when I told him to swipe something. I figured he would start off small. But no, not Jackson. Because this was apparently a good idea.
Jackson: So huuuuuuuungry!
You're fridge is right there. Go cook something.
Jackson: But I want to eat something no-!
That's nice, try not to put your head through the wall again please.
It was time for the first legacy meal and I figured who could honestly screw up mac and cheese. He could do this.
Look at you making it like a pro.
Jackson: I'm wasting away to nothing.
And I put too much faith in you. At least you didn't burn your house down?
Jackson: That's suppose to comfort me? *sighs*
Just eat your quick meal.
Jackson: That's all I wanted.
Jackson: Can I go to bed now?! Are you done with me yet?!
And you guessed it, the founder finally got to enjoy some rest only to complain as soon as he woke up. Something about me buying him the cheapest bed I could find. Though the car he stole could have changed all of that until he had a change of heart.
Jackson: *pouts* She's blocking the way.
Mail woman: Don't look now, just pretend he's not standing right next to you.
And with that the thousand simoleons he could have had were gone.
Unfortunately a few days had passed for our founder and his thoughts were growing dim. Apparently I had doomed him even though he was the one who was picky over his future spouse.
Jackson: I'm going to die a virgin.
Are you sure you want everyone out there knowing that?
Jackson: Er, I meant I'm going to die alone.
So I caved, even though I wanted him to meet a townie. I figured she was close by and she wasn't the only one I introduced to the twinbrook gene pool.
Meet Clarise Watts. At this point in time I had no idea what her traits were. I actually made her a few months ago to introduce into sunset valley on another game.
Things seemed to be moving along swimmingly. And by that I mean Jackson wasn't boring her to tears.
She genuinely seemed interested in him and their conversation. Especially when she found out they shared a similar trait.
Clarise: You sent it back? But why?
Aside from him boasting about the car he stole, they also enjoyed a little bit of gossip.
Clarise: Didn't you know? Back in her day, Mrs. Riddle was a bit of a slut.
Jackson: That's a little disturbing, but go on.
But then he had to put his foot in his mouth.
Jackson: It's important that keep yourself fit and active. I mean, no one will ever love you if you're fat.
Clarise: Did he just? *minus*
You really are going to die alone.
Jackson: I can't even look at you right now. You make me sick.
Do I really need to remind you why we're here?
Luckily she didn't throw his ass out, she even invited him to stay for dinner. Even though she didn't look like she particularly enjoyed cooking for him.
A match made in heaven I tell you. They can at least enjoy their burnt meals together.
Jackson: I really love the way it just melted in my mouth. It was absolutely superb!
Clarise: ...You're not eating anything.
Jackson: I understand now. I have to woo her.
Clarise: You know that I can still hear you, right?
So he cut to the chase, not that it would stop him from pursuing her.
And luckily for him, she was still unattached.
Then came the shameless flirting and there was no escape for her. Regardless of the fact that she was practically dead on her feet. Jackson paid no attention to the hints she tried to drop his way.
Clarise: Didn't you say you had to get up early for work? It's getting pretty late.
Jackson: Why don't I just stay over?
Clarise: Whoa, hold it there tiger. I hardly know you, so I think it's for the best if you leave.
Jackson: I am so in.
Sure you are, which is why I have to play damage control.
Again I'm reminded of there being no honor amongst thieves.
Burglar: How can he afford this?!asfkasdf! *has a meltdown rather than running for it*
Jackson: *rage slowly rising*
Jackson: *takes a deep breath* Alarm! Why do you FORSAKE me?! I need to be up in three hours!
Burglar: Is this guy serious?
Cop: It seems that way.
Jackson: I'LL NEVER GET THESE MINUTES BACK!
For a moment there I wondered if the burglar would prevail. But alas, she did not.
Jackson: *insert heavy breathing, panting, wheezing*
I always love the glitches in this game. Apparently the fight was so rough, those two went through the floor before the cop was announced the victor.
Jackson: I just wanted to sleep. Is that so wrong?
But this little event gave him a glimpse into his future. It let him know all about the risks that came with the job.
Jackson: Well, now that you've got her, I'm going back to bed. Lock up on your way out and I'll see you at work Cathy. *whistles to himself*
Naturally he learned nothing from the experience. If anything it made my dear founder even cockier than usual. As for Cathy, she made her grand escape. Considering the cop was foolish enough to leave her by the car rather than in it.
Jackson: Mmmmn. I wish someone would put me in handcuffs.
Another day passed since he had seen Clarise, but imagine my surprise when she was actually the one to seek him out.
Basically I told him to screw work, he wasn't going to pass up this opportunity. So it was time to take advantage of some unpaid time off. We would find a way to make up for the cash lost.
Jackson: Sure. It's a date..I mean, it doesn't have to be a date. I...meet me at Brunton's. *click*
Smooth moves. He has them.
Jackson: Can't screw this up. I can see it in her eyes, she wants me.
Swing girl: Get away from me, you yeti!
Jackson: No diamond in the world could ever compare to your beauty.
Swing pedo: Come on, you know you want to see my unicorn collection.
Awkward first kiss time as they attempt to ignore the advances going on by the swing.
After their lunch he decided once again that he couldn't wait. Even though he needed an extra push from me. But I wasn't about to scare her away entirely with the thought of marriage.
And she agreed. Jackson could work with this now that she was his woman.
Though it all lasted for five seconds before she suddenly had to be somewhere. Not that she's employed or anything, so unfortunately he had to let her go. But another opportunity presented itself before he left, especially when he overheard someone talking about his girl.
Juan: Remember when you were quite the tramp like her, Milly? It was only yesterday...
Neither Milly or Jackson were amused, and they hoped to get that point across by staring daggers at the old man.
Jackson: Keep it up and I'll break your hip.
*obligatory working out shot to pass the time*
And with the third phone call he made, not that he was desperate or anything, Clarise agreed to see him again. But from the looks of it, it wasn't exactly the most romantic spot.
Then she proceeded by breaking one of the toilets in the establishment. This would be the first of many times she broke something, I assure you and I know for a fact that she isn't a clumsy or unlucky sim.
Clarise: Why does this keep happening to me?!
Now on the other side of the door, I found Jackson once again being thwarted by it.
Jackson: I just wanted to ask her something! Why won't you let me in?!
Perhaps you should look at the sign again.
Jackson spent his time buttering her up once she finally emerged. Whispering sweet nothings in her ear as she waited on her laundry.
Clarise: Jackson, what are you doing? I need to dry my clothes.
Jackson: Are your clothes more important than this?
Jackson: What do you say? Will you marry me?
Let's ignore the fact that he's dirt poor. Somehow he managed to get her that ring. Maybe he paid a little visit to the Whelohff's again.
So she surprised me, she said yes and fortunately for me, Jackson rolled the want to marry her. So it happened right on the spot.
Now if I had generations maybe I would have gone out of my way to give them a proper wedding. But for now this seemed just fine by me. I just wanted to get this legacy started at this point.
And now there was no escaping for poor Clarise. *insert evil cackle*
Clarise: What have I done? What is this place? Hell?
No, I believe you'll actually enjoy it here. So shush. And here are her traits:
- Easily Impressed
As far as I know, her favorite color is white. She enjoys classical music(I could be wrong about that one) and goopy carbonara. Her lifetime wish is also to become a Master Thief. So Jackson certainly has some competition. She's also a Scorpio.
Clarise: I could just get lost in your eyes.
Clarise: Oh? Where did I get this old thing? Didn't you hear? I just got married. *giggles to herself*
I can tell I'm going to have fun with you.
Unfortunately for Jackson, he didn't get the chance to enjoy his wedding night.
Clarise: *snores like a gutted wild boar*
Next time: Will Jackson ever start his legacy? Will be he destined to die a virgin? And perhaps those dreams of being in handcuffs will come true. So stay tuned for the next installment of the Delaney Legacy.
