The Bates Family Legacy [7.3]

Happy New Year, everyone!
It's weird to think that 2012 is over; it sort of felt like it went by in the blink of an eye. (How cliche.)

Anyway, I hope you're all having a restful winter break (if you are actually on a winter break), and that you had a good NYE. After I finished the book challenge, I spent all of New Year's Day simming, and spent enough time with the Bates to put together a new update. So here it is!

Last time: Soraya and Corrine had simultaneous pregnancies, which I somehow forgot about until they were happening! Seth was a DJ, and a good one at that, but a big wuss and fainted again at the sight of a ghost. It's a good thing I'm planning to move him and Soraya out at some point, because he wouldn't last long in the Bates house. Soraya and Corrine gave birth at the same time; Soraya had a girl, Evelyn, and Corrine had a boy, Keenan (possible heir to the Bates family throne). Bryce totally lost his shit during the birth, and Seth fainted (aforementioned ghost) and missed it entirely. Soraya went back to work immediately after giving birth, and got two gigs — one at the park, and one at the coffee house. At the time I reported that she didn't get the coffee house gig, but obviously I'm a candidate for early-onset Alzheimers, because she did (which I found out when I returned to the game). Corrine used the tinkering table and almost died due to ass-on-fire, but thankfully her mother saved her.

Let's head under the cut for some more Bates family fun (this time, with a side heaping of scandal).
Then she said "te amo," then she put her hands around my waistCollapse )

Hey, welcome back, and Merry Christmas! I hope you're having a lovely day with your family, and that you got lots of gifts!
I finally had some time to sit down and put out the next Bates chapter, so here it is.

Last time: I sent Bryce and Seth to break up with their old girlfriends so they could marry Corrine and Soraya, and that did not go well. Soraya and Seth got married and fornicated, Ellie came to visit the house, and Bryce started wooing Corrine. Aidan got promoted to Creature-Robot Cross Breeder and achieved his LTW, and Soraya stole the spotlight at the park from Seth's ex. Tough day for Seth's ex, losing a boyfriend and a gig to the same woman. Yowch. Aidan and Layla moved out of the family compound and into a (bigger, nicer) house, and the world shed a few tears. (At least, I did.) Seth fainted at the sight of a ghost, because he's a big, big wuss. Bryce and Corrine got married and had the sex, and I believed that neither of the girls were pregnant.

So let's head under the cut and see what the Bates got up to this time around.
Follow me under the cut for more Bates family fun!Collapse )

So...it's been a while! I've been sitting on this chapter, and the one that I'll be releasing right after it, for a couple of months now, but school's been crazy and I just didn't have the time to put them together. But the semester's nearly over and I've got some time (FINALLY) so I thought I'd actually put them out on LiveJournal. Anyway!

Last time: Corrine graduated and almost hooked up with this weird-but-cute guy named Ethan, until I found out that she was married. Gavin and Benjamin continued to make up and break up in frustrating cycles, and it looked like Saad and his old lady lover had some drama in their relationship, for which I was thankful. Youssef had a birthday, and Soraya embarked on a career as a songstress. Josh died, and it was the saddest thing to ever happen to me because he was my absolute favourite.

Anyway, head below the cut for Quinn's final heiress chapter!

Not gonna fight anymore, 'cause I want your touchCollapse )

A Bates family house tour with excessive commentary

I've done it! After much (much, much) toiling, I finally finished the Bates family house in Starlight Shores. 

I've actually decorated this house three times. The first time, I finished everything except one and a half bedrooms without saving, and my game crashed. I cried. I gave myself a couple of hours to cool down, went back on, and saved periodically. I was just finishing up my FAVOURITE BEDROOM DESIGN EVER when my game crashed, and I hadn't saved it. I went back on today to finish up the three rooms that had been erased when my game crashed the second time, saving periodically as I went, and I can happily say I am finally done, and the Bates have a GORGEOUS house. I didn't want to stick it in the next update since there are so many pictures, so you can just see it here, instead.

See you under the cut!
Plenty of pictures under the cut!Collapse )

Hey guys! It's been a little while but I'm back again with an update from the Bates! 

Last time: Aidan, Quinn, and Charlotte went to China for a little while. When they came back, Saad got engaged to an octogenarian, Layla and Quinn had their adult birthdays, my simself got married to Booker Singleton, Gavin and Benjamin got back together and then broke up again, and Soraya and Corrine became adults. Corrine got a job at the police department, Soraya graduated, and, tragically, Charlotte died. D: Then Layla and Soraya went to Egypt, and Soraya got frisky with this cute Egyptian guy. Unfortunately a month (or more?) passed between the time I updated the legacy and when I started playing again, so I forgot about that last point. Which is why there will be no cute Egyptian guy in this update.

Let's get started!

Your body's rockin', keeps me up all night. One in a million, my lucky strike.Collapse )

Hey guys! Welcome back!
It's been a little while and I've been pretty busy, but now that it's summer I've had more time to play the Bates family.

Anyway, there've been some changes; as I'm sure most of you are aware, Picnik shut down, but I have found a really wonderful alternative: Pic Monkey. It sounds a little hokey, but if anything it's actually better than Picnik. More features, nothing's off-limits. Awesome. The only thing is they don't have all the same fonts, so I had to change the fonts I was working with. But it's cool. I like this comic book-style thing I've got going on.

Anyway, let's head below the cut for some Bates family fun!

If happy ever after did exist, I would still be holding you like thisCollapse )

So, it's been a while, huh? I've been so busy in the last couple of months, with school and work and whatnot, but I've been trying really hard to play the Bates, and now I have a chapter and the time to share it! :)

Anyway, I've also come to a dilemma about the Bateses which I will share at the end of the chapter — and I'd appreciate any input you can offer! Anyway, let's head under the cut for some fun, Bates style.
Pour some sugar on me, oh in the name of love!Collapse )

Hey, all! I had a little extra time today (surprise, surprise) so I decided to upload my much-overdue chapters of Bates family goodness.

As I mentioned in yesterday's small entry, and as you can clearly see here, I've redesigned the covers to be a little bit more sophisticated/AWESOME. On those title pictures I'm just calling it the "Bates Legacy" because it's shorter, but technically it's still called "The Bates Family Legacy." Small changes, but just so we all know.

Last time, there was super-gratuitous house spam after the family moved to Appaloosa Plains. Gavin, against all odds, rolled his LTW to become an International Spy, and the twins became teens. Quinn was a supermodel and Saad was adorable beyond all words. Josh took up the bass, and looked good doing it. He and Saad and Terry had a three-man band. Aidan grew up and I tried to jump through the computer screen to make love to him. Gavin also grew up, with different results. Graduation happened, and then the boys both tried their hand at finding a life long partner. Or, y'know, a quick fling.

Anyway, this is the last chapter of Josh's heirship, so let's head under the cut and see what happened during it!

I've got the jumpin' jack flash, it's-a gas gas gas!Collapse )

Hey guys! Since I just posted 5.5 I'm not going to do a recap, so I will see you under the cut for some good old fashioned Bates Family fun!

Half of this update is a gratuitous house tour. But the house is gorgeous, so it's okay.Collapse )

Hey everyone!
It's been a while, but I'm so glad to be back with two Bates Family updates (which total about 130 pictures, so get excited). Basically what happened was my trackpad on my Mac started screwing up so epically that it was barely useable; I could hardly get to my email, so naturally playing the sims was an impossibility. Anyway, it got fixed a couple of days ago, and so I've been playing up a storm (the Bates family, as well as a new family in Apaloosa Plains, so that I could play around with pets).

Anyway, last time Matt Bates, Hadley's son, was a player. Terry became an elder (le creys), but a fly one. He also retired. Ariel died (le more creys). Aidan and Gavin became children, and Gavin got the insane trait. He automatically became my favourite. Nora became an elder. Charlotte had fraternal twins, Saad (pronounced Sahd) and Quinn. Quinn was waaaaay cuter than Saad, and Saad was a Gavin clone. Aidan became a teen (and a gorgeous one at that).

See you under the cut!
Birthdays, prom, and meteors, oh my!Collapse )

Hey guys, and welcome back! It hasn't been all that long since I updated last, because I've been in a sims-playing mood lately, but nonetheless I will recap for you.

Last time, Ariel cuckolded her boyfriend, Matthew Hamming, with her ghost husband, Hank (or, as I like to call him in the tags, Hank the Tank). Charlotte was pregnant, and Ariel got called out for her cheating ways. Bridgeport had mutant bugs. Charlotte was the sole normal person in a family of crazy, and also the biggest BAMF the sim world has ever seen: she drove herself around on her little scooter while heavily pregnant, and used it to drive herself to the hospital when she was labour. Hadley and Wayne Bates-Bumble had a son they named Leonardo, obviously destining him for great things. Charlotte and Josh had a baby boy they named Aidan. Matt (Hadley's first son immaculate conception), defying all odds, got a girlfriend. I decided Terry & Nora were going to get five grandchildren. Good luck, Kelsey. Nora and Terry fulfilled their LTWs. We actually saw Matt in the flesh and turns out that he wasn't as ugly as I thought. Charlotte and Josh had another boy who they named Gavin. Then Josh and Terry went to Egypt and it was basically just fan-service from that point on.

Let's head under the cut for more Bates Family fun.

Well, hellooooooo there, all! How have you been? You're looking lovely today! I like those shoes!

Let's recap, shall we? Last time, Rhys had the Kanye West of bachelor parties. (And by that I don't mean dope-as-shit, I mean "the worst bachelor party of all time. OF ALL TIME.") Hadley started dating a guy named Wayne Bumble. Rhys found a laundry gnome! Peyton was overenthusiastic about laundry, weddings, and just about everything else. Rhys & Peyton got married, and moved out shortly afterwards. Wayne Bumble knocked Hadley up, and they had a shotgun wedding and then moved in together. Charlotte found out she was pregnant, after excessive trying, via the proof in the puke. Thank you Jesus, as my mother would say!

Let's head under the cut for some more fun, Bates style. And, contrary to this title picture, it's all mostly safe for work.

Hey guys! Sorry if you share Andre's frustration with not being able to see what Josh looks like all grown up. Trust me, he's under the cut and he's phenomenal. I can't stop staring and drooling at him.

Anyway, I won't hold you up any further! Enjoy this chapter. :D
