Chapter 7.4

Chapter 7.4 Double team

As promised, Hershey granted his older brother the air-time he deserved.  Twix, being a smart cookie, utilized this time wisely and decided to take Whitney to a nearby lake; not to drown her, but to pop the question.Screenshot-8779After much fumbling, he managed to open up the box and reveal the ultra sparkly engagement ring to Whitney, who had been waiting for his proposal pretty much since the day Hershey had proposed to Allyson.Screenshot-8782Still, she managed to feign her surprise, and all in all, it was a pleasant engagement.Screenshot-8786Screenshot-8789‘I like sparkly things,’ Whitney stated.  She stood there staring at her engagement ring for the next five hours.  Twix got bored after two hours and left her to it.Screenshot-8787In the end, Twix and Hershey ended up having a double wedding.  It was a practical idea considering how long wedding parties seem to take in the Sim world.Screenshot-8818As expected, they wedded in the same location Cointreau and Jeffrey had, mainly because the scenery was fabulous for photographs.  Naturally, Twix and Whitney were first to exchange vows, being the stars of this generation and all (well, for the time being).Screenshot-8831‘Check us out, doing adult stuff!’Screenshot-8826Aero was the only family member who held a small trace of resentment because he wished he could of had a fancy wedding.Screenshot-8839Instead, all he got was a crappy off-camera notification.Aero and Adrianne marriedWho this “close friend” was, no one knew, not even Aero.Screenshot-8837Still, it was a beautiful ceremony.  Screenshot-8843And most importantly, there was cake.Screenshot-8852Earl, who was the only one still alive from generation 6, actually only showed up because of this.Screenshot-8858Oh, and Allyson almost got married to the wrong guy, who happened to be Samuel McNeil.Screenshot-8859He had split up with Bounty a few months ago, after finally finding out that she had deliberately stopped taking her contraceptive pill.Screenshot-8863Fortunately, Hershey stepped in just in time and told Samuel where to stick it.    Screenshot-8867And so, they were married and all were happy.Screenshot-8875Screenshot-8876Screenshot-8873Well, all except for Tremayne as he managed to miss the weddings by -you guessed it- shorting-out after trying to down a bottle of tequila.Screenshot-8900  

Chapter 6.9

Chapter 6.9 All good, butter face

Hershey decided to grow up to be an adorable looking toddler.Screenshot-6822He was so adorable that it was necessary to show another picture of him in the exact same pose, only closer up and from a slightly different angle so everyone was aware of just how adorable he was.Screenshot-6820Cointreau was pleased that at least one of her children had inherited pretty much all her features and spent most her time with Hershey.Screenshot-6884Well, anytime that did not involve changing his nappy or trying to settle him down to sleep at night.  She left this task up to Tremayne.Screenshot-6818Twix, who was on the cusp of childhood, was aware that he was treated a little bit differently compared to his siblings.Screenshot-6816The family convinced him however that it was perfectly normal to spend all night sitting on the floor it you happened to have blonde hair.Screenshot-6817Also, they threw him a lovely birthday party, only to eat all the cake whilst he ran upstairs to change his hairstyle and clothes.Screenshot-6841Still, he transformed into a rather cute child.  It also turned out that his hair was drity-blonde, not bleach blonde, so it did not look ridiculous against his dusky skin tone.Screenshot-6850Aero decided that Twix was alright and started to treat him with a bit more respect, instead of mixing dog food with his Weetabix every morning.Screenshot-6857A couple of years later, Bounty celebrated the anticipated step into teenhood.Screenshot-6867Sadly, she grew up with a bit of a horse face.  Still, it was likely a man, or a horse, would still find her attractive enough to marry one day.Screenshot-6882Prom time quickly came around.Screenshot-6898Bounty scrubbed up well for a Butter Face.Screenshot-6891Aero decided to to don the same tuxedo his Great-great-great grandfather, Fudge, wore for prom.  However, Earl ridiculed him for being a copy-cat.Screenshot-6893Naturally this dampened his spirits and he spent all night with the following frown on his face, which somehow only amplified the amount of female attention he received, much to the dismay of his girlfriend, Adrianne.Screenshot-6894The reason behind Earl’s negative attitude towards Aero was a lot more complex.  Screenshot-6874He was still bitter about his failure of a love life, you see.  Tiffany and him had broken up a few years back, and to this day he was alone and single with no children to boast about.Screenshot-6871‘Luckily he wasn’t chosen to become the heir of this generation,’ Alice, the founder of this whole legacy, laughed.  She had not made an appearance in a while, so thought it was about time she closed off a chapter for us.  Thanks, Alice.Screenshot-6671

Chapter 6.2

Chapter 6.2 – Tremayne in love

Throughout the decades Tremayne had never really had his chance to shine, mostly because he was a bit boring.Screenshot-5950However, since his upgrade, he had become more of a party animal and had no reservations when it came to shaking his booty on the dance-floor.Screenshot-5259The macarena was one of his specialties.Screenshot-5263Despite all the upgrades, his processing chip still indicated to him that there was something missing, which he discovered one evening when he was at the local library.Screenshot-5285Her name was Dawn, and she was the first simbot he had ever met since his creation.  Although she had lego-style hair, he thought she looked amazing.Screenshot-5282Tremayne had not been programmed to act flirty, so was too shy to greet her and did that awkward thing where you pretend you haven’t noticed the other person despite it’s very obvious you’ve been staring at them for the past five minutes.  Yeah, that thing.Screenshot-5283Luckily, the fem-bot, whom was called Dawn, had a significantly better communication chip than him and eagerly suggested that they shared and compared lubricants.Screenshot-5284Unfortunately, Tremayne managed to misinterpret Dawn’s blatant innuendo and took her back to his place to play beer pong, despite none of them could really consume liquids, nor get drunk.  All in all, it was a mediocre night.Screenshot-5310Unlike Tremayne, Earl was not a failure with women.  Things had heated up so much with Tiffany over the past several months that he decided it was time to pop the question.Screenshot-5994As he dropped to one knee she questioned his motives, until he produced the ring.  After that she was content and accepted his proposal. Screenshot-5998Screenshot-5993Jameson was thrilled about their engagement, so thrilled in fact that there are no pictures to convey this.  Mika was also please for them, although she was still skeptical about Tiffany and her erratic mood-swings what with her suffering from bipolar and all.Screenshot-5981‘Hurt my son and I’ll break your neck,’ Mika quite clearly explained to her daughter-in-law one evening.Screenshot-5983Shortly after that, Tiffany suggested to Earl that they should move into their own place.  And they did, only all could afford was a questionable sized one bedroom house on the dodgy side of town.Screenshot-6069‘At least it has character!’ Earl said, ever the optimist.Screenshot-6071It took a look of strength, but that night Earl did not end up being a murder victim, all thanks to the threat Mika had made to Tiffany a few screenshots ago.Screenshot-6070To conclude this chapter it is paramount to know that Pooka, the Bailey’s first pet dog, is still alive.  Very old, but still alive.  As for Venus the cat, well, she refused to move from Sunlit Tides, so she no longer resided with the family. Screenshot-5956In all honesty, she had never particularly liked them in the first place.Screenshot-4330

Chapter 6.1

Chapter 6.1 – Error Code 12…

Immediately after Saffron and Peach graduated from University, the Bailey family packed up and moved to a lovely town called Setra (basically a lovechild of Bridgeport and Al Simhara). The reason why they chose to leave Sunlit Tides was never really established, but it may have been linked to Jameson accidentally setting fire to half the island during a one-off acrobatic show at the park.Screenshot-5207Anyways, it certainly had nothing to do with the Error Code 12 saving error.error12
Their new house was very fancy and even had a fence and gate to keep any unwanted visitors at bay.Screenshot-5204Here is a sample of what Jameson and Mika did for pretty much the entire duration their children were at University.Screenshot-5232As for Tremayne, who had been the family’s faithful robot since sometime in Generation 2, he decided to embrace his new start by upgrading his OS to version 7.  This came complete with a new skin and the function to upload his pictures straight to Facebook.  Unfortunately, the new interface took some getting used to.Screenshot-5203Peach and Milo left the house as soon as they could.Screenshot-5227They went to move in with Danny Harris, Peach’s sweetheart from University, who she had recently found out possessed the commitment issues trait.  Not like it deterred her.  He had a nice face and thus would help her produce pretty babies some day.Screenshot-5919Saffron remained in the Bailey household whilst she advanced in the medical field.  She was too occupied with rising up the ranks to find a suitable man.  That and her squeeze from University, Garry Cinder, who also happened to live in Setra, had ended up marrying some other chick, so naturally Saffron was bitter and jealous about this.Screenshot-5226Therefore, it was only natural she took this frustration out on her patients.Screenshot-5233Earl also hung around the house for a free meal ticket and naturally joined the music career.Screenshot-5915He also became good at cooking in preparation for eventually moving out to live with Tiffany Angles, his lady friend from University.Screenshot-5941Frangelico, or Franny Pie (as she went by for her stage name), was clearly still doing her singing stuff, something to keep her occupied before she would start popping out kids.Screenshot-5942She even went on to develop the “whistle-gram”.Screenshot-5943This was met with a lukewarm reception.Screenshot-5945Finally, as expected, Cointreau joined the criminal career, although she appeared to dress more like she had joined the prostitution career.  This, however, only turned out to be a clever decoy to stop her family suspecting she was mingling with an evil crowd.Screenshot-5952Cointreau had actually never anticipated she would be chosen to take over the household, so it came as a bit of a surprise to her.Screenshot-5967Funnily enough, it was Ricky who nominated Cointreau to be the baby producer for this generation.  He enjoyed the fact that she was as much of a troll as he was so had convinced Jameson that she was ideal for the role.  That and he created scandals about Cointreau’s siblings so they would be considered unworthy compared to Cointreau.Screenshot-5247Ricky had faith that this generation would not fail to amuse him.Screenshot-5246

Earl’s Court (Part 2)

Earl’s Court (Part 2)

On top of my studying, all the arguing, accusations and unpredictability, it was wearing me out.Screenshot-5125I loved Tiff to bits, but her mood swings and erratic behaviour were never easy to deal with.Screenshot-5417Tiff would flip over the smallest things, such as if I’d put two kisses on the end of a text message instead of three.Screenshot-5413Screenshot-5414I remembered a while back when I had first confided in Fran about Tiff’s bipolar disorder and how I was struggling to cope with it.  She stood there listening to me rant for a good while before she spoke her usual words of wisdom.Screenshot-5605‘It’s something she can’t control, Earl.  If you choose to be with her, it’s something you have to understand and accept.’Screenshot-5604Snapping back to reality, Tiff was still at my throat.

‘Are you even listening?  You’re the worst boyfriend ever…’ she continued on, listing everything I had apparently done wrong during the last several days.Screenshot-5416Fran was right, Tiff couldn’t help her outbursts, but I could try and help her at least.
‘You’re right, I’m a terrible boyfriend sometimes.’Screenshot-5412Tiff’s eyes popped wide open and her lips parted.  For once in her life, she was speechless.  I’d disarmed her in one of the best ways possible.Screenshot-5411‘But I’m always here if you need me, whether it is to shout at me, cry on my shoulder, or if you just need someone to talk to.’ Screenshot-5410Stepping forwards, I embraced her in my arms, kissing her softly.  For a moment her muscles stiffened, but then she relaxed into me, kissing back me back hard and furious. Before long clothes were discarded and we were in the bedroom making as much noise as possible.Screenshot-5409By the time graduation was looming, Tiff and I were stronger than ever.  We’d even planned to move in together once we were both back on our feet after University.Screenshot-5584I nailed my final exams and presentations, one of which was to elaborate on the ways art can influence different moods and dictate the decisions people make.Screenshot-5352Like Peach and Saffron, I graduated with first class honors.Screenshot-5679After graduation, Tiff and I spent a couple of weeks hanging around our University town together, relishing the time we had left together.Screenshot-5606When it was time to head back to our respective home towns, I eagerly awaited for the day when we would see each other again, not realising it would come quicker than I anticipated…Screenshot-5183

Earl’s Court (Part 1)

Earl’s Court (Part 1)

My name is Earl.  Sorry, had to be done!  My mum, in fact, had an obsession with herbal tea, hence my name.  I noticed from a young age how all my siblings had faintly ridiculous names relating to either food or alcohol.  It’s most certainly a Bailey thing, one I knew I’d grow to understand one day.  Or at least I hoped.Screenshot-5066I joined my older sisters at Uni when they were in their final year.  By then they had seen and experienced it all, so needless to say they were protective over me, Saffron in particular, worried I’d delve down all the wrong avenues.  Screenshot-5119I behaved though, to an extent.  Tiffany Angles was one of my housemates, cute and fun to be around.  We hung out a lot together.Screenshot-5094Tiff was studying Physical Education, so often volunteered to lift me whenever we were faced with a juice keg situation.Screenshot-5095Unfortunately, she wasn’t as strong as she made out to be…Screenshot-5096Screenshot-5098Screenshot-5099Needless to say, I was angry the first time she dropped me, but after the bruise on my head had eventually cleared I saw the funny side.Screenshot-5100When Saffron invited herself over for dinner one evening, I told her about how Tiff and I had gone bowling together with a few other jocks and how we had both blitzed the other team.Screenshot-5063‘Tiff’s amazing,’ I confessed, a small smile tugging at the corner of my lips.Screenshot-5062‘It’s sweet that you’ve found a girl you like,’ Saffron replied, eyes fixed across the room at one of my male roomies, who had just happened to walk into the room topless.  ‘Just be careful,’ she continued,  ‘Tiff hasn’t always been friendly to you, has she?’Screenshot-5064Saffron had a point.  Tiff and I hadn’t exactly got off on the right foot to start off with.  I’d stepped out into the hallway one afternoon, playing on my guitar when a door swung open at such a force it slammed against the wall, leaving a small indent in the plasterboard.Screenshot-5047‘One hour!  That’s all the sleep I’ve had since yesterday; one hour!  So shut the hell up and shove your stupid little guitar up your arse!’Screenshot-5157Screenshot-5156I can’t remember how it happened, but a day later we ended up sitting side by side in the living room playing computer games together, laughing and joking like we had known each other for years.Screenshot-5144I guess her mood-swings should have been a warning bell from the start, but since I had grown up a laid-back family (somewhat), a little bit of spice and conflict was actually somewhat refreshing.Screenshot-5147Quite simply, I knew from very early on that I wanted to marry this girl, warts and all.Screenshot-5146 

Chapter 5.14

Chapter 5.14 – Congradulations

Naturally, before Peach and Saffron could head off to University, they had to go through the whole high school graduation ceremony, which more than often was a whole day event in which they would stand outside the city hall, get hungry and complain constantly.Screenshot-4586Mika, who was now looking more old than young, was slightly jealous of her youthful daughters, particularly Saffron, who would no doubt gain many male admirers whilst at University.Screenshot-4587Audrey, a girl who had once led old Murphy Bailey on back during Chapter 4.12 also happened to show her face at the graduation ceremony.  She either had children of her own, or was just trying to groom yet another eighteen year old boy.Screenshot-4591Turned out that although Murphy had forgiven, or quite simply just forgotten, what with his on-set Alzheimer’s disease, Jameson still held a grudge against her.  He made sure, with the help of Earl and Cointreau, that she could never deliberately break the heart of another living soul again by kindly murdering her.Screenshot-4592Peach and Saffron focused on raising their skills for the next year or so before they filled in their University test aptitude forms, which is obviously how the University entry application process works…Screenshot-4609Saffron applied to study Science and Medicine since she had plans to become a well renowned surgeon, and Peach applied for Physical Education since she still struggled to climb up the stairs, let alone get onto her horse.   Screenshot-4604Soon enough they were accepted and the rest of the family waved them off, glad to finally have a bit of space in the house.Screenshot-4626‘Take care, don’t get pregnant, Saffron!’Screenshot-4629Frangelico and Cointreau were particularly thrilled that in their older siblings absence, they were allowed to steal their bedroom.Screenshot-4627And of course, they had extra time to prove that they were more worthy of becoming the founder of the next generation.Screenshot-4935Cointreau in particular really wanted this responsibility as she believed the Baileys were not evil enough and would work on rectifying this.  Screenshot-4936Frangelico and Earl on the other hand were becoming quite the musicians and planned to sprinkle a bit of musical flavour onto the next generation.Screenshot-4938 Screenshot-4940As time developed, so did Earl.  He grew a lovely little goatee to mark his coming of age.  He planned to join Saffron and Peach at University, studying Fine Arts just like his Aunt Malibu had done.Screenshot-4990This final chapter of Generation 5 will end on a picture of Tremayne interacting with Milo the horse, who appears to have a rainbow shooting out from his neck.Screenshot-4505Like last time there will be a few bonus chapters of the “children” at University, but not as many as last time since it took up more time than anticipated to write them all.   Stay tuned for those and the voting poll 🙂 x x

Chapter 5.13

Chapter 5.13 – Off you go now

To celebrate getting old, Jameson and Mika threw a party, as seemed to be a long running tradition in the legacy of the Baileys.Screenshot-4454 - CopyFrangelico and Cointreau, who were avid Game of Thrones fans, dressed up in medieval style gowns, and even managed to pull the image off without looking like they were complete weirdos.Screenshot-4440Screenshot-4443Whilst most people stood around outside, like they were having difficulties getting inside the building, Mika and Cointreau grazed greedily on the cookies from the buffet.  The fact that Cointreau was not even halfway through her teen years did not deter Mika from asking her if she had thought about getting married to anyone.  In all honestly though she had given up on Peach and Saffron finding anyone on the Island that was marriage worthy.  Screenshot-4450‘Just a warning, sleep around as much as you can beforehand.  Once you’re married, that all goes out the window,’ Mika revealed, glancing over at Jameson who was about to sit down on the empty chair next to Cointreau.  Screenshot-4451‘Hey!’ Jameson exclaimed, no doubt feeling useless and humiliated.  It was true, however.Screenshot-4453 - CopyA few years later, it was official, Jameson and Mika were losing the elasticity in their skin,  a clear sign that death was slowly approaching.Screenshot-4502As for Peach and Saffron, they were still fairly young and just days away from adulthood, so they decided it was time to start planning their birthday party.Screenshot-4432Peach mused  about what they could do during every meal time, since thinking was only a thing she could do when she was eating.Screenshot-4532‘Why don’t you hire out the nightclub across the road from us?’ Earl suggested.  ‘We’re filthy rich and all, so $1,500 isn’t going to go amiss.’Screenshot-4529‘Wait, I’ve got a great idea! We’re rich, we can rent out the nightclub across the road from us’ Peach said, completely disregarding that Earl had just suggested the exact same thing. Screenshot-4533Screenshot-4531And so, they hired out the club for the night using money they had never contributed towards earning.Screenshot-4543The girls instantly hit the dance floor, whilst Earl headed to the bar to drink despite he was still below the legal age.Screenshot-4546‘You’re a genius, Peach!’ Saffron complimented, whilst two old men, who had not been invited, eyed them up from afar.Screenshot-4548Peach grinned, although it was a known fact that she did not possess the genius trait.  Nor did Frangelico, but she was musically talented so this did not matter.Screenshot-4549Somehow, the party went down well, despite most the guests turned up several hours late due to standing around outside for not apparent reason.Screenshot-4558Saffron also gained a new secret admirer.Screenshot-4563A while later, and after a much needed change of threads to mark their step into young adulthood, Saffron and Peach were ready to head off to University.Screenshot-4565Peach more unwillingly as she only wanted to stay at home and make a living by using her horse in races and the such, but Jameson and Mika convinced her that moving away from home temporarily would help develop her personality further.  Hopefully.Screenshot-4568

Chapter 5.12

Chapter 5.12 – Totally an accident

After a few more years of “hard work”, Jameson reached the top of his acrobatic career.  To celebrate he set himself on fire.Screenshot-4305And he hugged a giant ball.  Neither of these actions were part of his act, so he was swiftly escorted from the premises.Screenshot-4302Meanwhile, Cointreau and Frangelico celebrated the end of their childhood, with lots of a cake as was standard in the Bailey household.Screenshot-4336The family kept the celebrations simple by not inviting anyone else.  It was also a cunning ploy so they would have more cake to eat between them. Screenshot-4342Both girls wished to develop useful traits.Screenshot-4340Screenshot-4339Sadly, this did not happen.  Still, they grew up to be rather aesthetically pleasing, which is all that matters.Screenshot-4361Being musically inclined since the moment she had pretty much been born, Frangelico quickly took to playing her Grandfather’s (Judd’s) guitar and was actually quite good at it.Screenshot-4364Cointreau, who was yet another brain-box in the family, continued to focus on building up her logic skill.Screenshot-4369Of course, she was still very evil. Screenshot-4385She very much enjoyed trolling her family members, quite often by “accidentally” walking between them when they were having serious conversations in the bathroom.Screenshot-4402The only family member she was relatively kind to and supportive of was Frangelico, since they had shared the same womb and all.Screenshot-4397As for Earl, the middle child, he continued to study hard so he could look to go off to University when he was old enough.Screenshot-4388He also continued to work on raising his drum skills because he quickly learnt that chicks liked guys who could play instruments.Screenshot-4392Earl continued to be a bit of a dick to his older sister, Saffron.  On one particular occasion she had announced, to whoever was in earshot, how excited she was to dig into the last piece of cake in fridge, only to turn back around to find that Earl had claimed it as his.Screenshot-4379Screenshot-4380Saffron was not best pleased.Screenshot-4381Whilst Jameson and Earl dug into their slices of scrummy moist cake, Saffron was lumbered with leftover smoke salmon steak, which had started to go a little off.  Needless to say, she spent most that night glued to the toilet seat.   Screenshot-4383Saffron’s twin, Peach, had no real interest in cake but was still enthusiastic about horse riding despite constantly feeling terrified that Milo would buck her off at any moment.  It was a game he very much enjoyed playing with her.Screenshot-4390After a while, Milo grew to tolerate Peach and stopped arsing around with her as much.   Screenshot-4420Mika, who was starting to feel her age, and was partly jealous of her children’s youth and energy, started to exercise pretty much everyday as a bid to stay in shape.Screenshot-4400Jameson effortlessly managed to keep his physique in top condition with his career as an acrobat.  His confidence now at an all-time high, he decided during one fateful gig that it was time to pull off one of the most dangerous and deadly stunts of all, only known as “The Burning Inferno of Dangerous Stuff”.Screenshot-4423As he slowly made his way towards the hoop on the other side of the stage, his face was plagued with a deadly serious expression. Screenshot-4426His heart was racing as he positioned himself onto the flaming object.  However, moments later, his nerves dissipated as he started to roll around the stage, moving with the greatest of ease and with the grace of a ballet dancer.  Screenshot-4429All continued to go well, until he remembered that he had forgotten to record the latest episode of Dexter and lost control of the ring, consequently flying straight off the stage into the audience, flames spitting everywhere.  He managed to escape with a few minor burns, but unfortunately the audience weren’t so lucky, especially after the building collapsed on them.Screenshot-4428Jameson decided after that incident that it was safer to revert back to painting pretty landscapes and selling them on for extortionate amounts.  At least that way he could not be labelled as a mass-murderer.  Screenshot-4394
