Here's my take on the Ishkabibble Legacy/Uglacy; also called GUCCI, which stands for... ? (Get Ugly Children Challenge I...?) Haha, well I think this is the most enjoyable legacy I've started yet for two reasons; 1} trying for ugly sims instead of pretty ones is fun & different, and 2} this is the first time I've allowed my simmies to run
mostly on free-will. So they have a bit more of their own personalities than my other sims have.
Here is our adorable founder Gabe Ishkabibble.

Gabe's lovely home :]
There were no jobs in the Medical Career, so for now we'll work in the Science track. That way we can cover similar skills.
And Gabe gets started right away on the logic points! seriously, he ALWAYS has the want "to stargaze", even in the daytime. And after he does it, and gets the points, he rolls the same want again! I've never had a sim love the telescope quite as much.
Bedtime! We can't afford pretty bedsheets and colorful paint/wallpaper yet :\
I thought Bella was only on the milk in Pleasantview? Haha, and Gabe was just chattin' with her last night on the computer.
Gabe: OMG! The key to cleaning is SOAP!? What a discovery!!
haha, I love you Gabe.
He's so cute :D
And of course my signature "shower shot". Is it wrong that I like to take shower pics? My sims are just that hot. ;]
Awwe, he was demoted his second day of work (he was promoted the first day).
Poor Gabe. He can hardly do anything w/o stopping to cry.
The next day there was an opening in the Medical Career. Thank goodness.
That evening, Gabe got a call from a co-worker, and was invited downtown.
So... the cab driver is also the carpool driver? Is it always this way and I've just never noticed?
After several hours (and at least one 'maxmotives' because I see nothing wrong with using it away from home), we find this sweetie. Niiice lips! Just what we need to get this uglacy started :D
Her name is Trista Shaw, and she's in the Science Career track.
She's a Leo (not that I even know what that means about her personality)
When Gabe asked her "Do you like what you see?", she was all "Meh?" So he asked what her turn-ons where, and she replied "makeup". I really don't like to see guys wearing makeup, but I really liked her so later I gave Gabe some light eyeliner.
The next day, Gabe had off from work, so he invited Trista over. Things progressed very quickly.
I/We/Gabe asked how much money she had and... well it isn't much, but I don't feel like trying to find somebody else. I love her. And Gave kinda likes her too. He'll grow to love her.
Right as the both became best friends, Gabe tried to... hug her, I think, and it didn't go over so well.
But she very quickly got over it, and they were already making out.
Gabe asked Trista to go steady with him (cuz I guess you have that option for adults w/ inteen) and she said no. Gabe didn't take it so well.
I tried to get them to talk a bit, but Gabe just couldn't stop thinking about being rejected. :[
So I intervened again, and told them to cuddle. Aren't they just so CUTE!? :D
I guess you can work up a sweat cuddling, cuz right then Gabe decided he needed a shower. Trista walked in and was all "OMG, naked guy!"
AND SHE FLUSHED ON HIM AND LAUGHED! I've only ever head of it happening, and never on purpose like that.
and notice were the water is hitting... ouch.
Gabe is a very forgiving sim. And its somewhere around here they both fall in love/have crushes on each other. (I forget which, I'm missing photos for both events).
And then its time to work on starting Generation Two!
Trista moves in and gets a MAKEOVER. She's lovely. I even like her big lips. They give her character :]
Oh, and here are Trista's stats:
LTW - 20 pet best friends (yeah right!)
neat/sloppy - 4
outgoing/shy - 10
active/lazy - 4
playful/serious - 4
nice/grouchy - 3
Turn-ons: makeup & hats
She's also at the top of the Science career, as a Mad Scientist. You would have thought she would have brought more money with her? Though, she did bring a bunch of crap! THREE pianos, a DJ table thing, an aquarium, a rug, some other junk... It made up for her lack of money. I sold it all except for the aquarium.
There was some half prepared food laying on the counter and I guess Trista was too hungry to go into the fridge. I feel bad for not stopping her, but I've never had a sick sim before, and I didn't want to interfere with free-will too much... *IsEvil*
Right away I got a message that she had the flu.
See what happens when you eat gross food that's been sitting out for two days?!
Oh... that just makes everything worse.
So Trista rolled the want to be engaged, and I didn't want the baby to be born with the Shaw name (though it still happened? ><'), so Gabe proposed right there in the bathroom.
And since Trista rolled the want to have a wedding party, we had it a few hours later.
Now I SWEAR I had Gabe initiate the marriage, but they all ended up with the name Shaw. I tried to change it with simPE, but I guess I messed up somewhere and my game stopped working. Thank goodness I made a backup right before I started changing the names back to Ishkabibble!
PT#9 was invited because as soon as I started this legacy, I was sure to make friends with him. I saw him in somebody else's legacy and I officially LOVE him and all aliens♥ How does he know she's preggers though? Her husband doesn't even know yet!
Oh yeah, and Gabe left right then for work.
So he missed the limo ride when the party was over.
Baby Bump #1
I missed the actual 'bump' but yeah... I don't see much difference.
Trista wanted a bird so we got this lil guy. His name is Holland and Trista spent almost the entire day teaching him to talk. Here they are discussing the meaning behind his name.
And because we need money to add on to the house, and Trista is on maternity leave, AND she has maxed out creativity points.... I had her alternate between painting a masterpiece and writing a novel.
That night while everyone was sleeping, I worked a bit on the new addition of the house. While Trista was checkin' it out, she popped again!
Here's the house thus far.
And then, the next day (I guess nothing eventful happened yesterday?), Trista invited PT#9 over because she wanted to be best friends with him. He brought a friend along. Things were going well, until she tried to hug him. Oops.
Then Trista went into labor! OWWIES XS
Say hello to baby Lucas
Shaw Ishkabibble! He has his daddy's skintone, eyes (green), and both his parent's hair (blonde).
Aww, she loves him.
But... then she put him on the floor. I was like "Oh no! She's going to be that kind of a mom! ><"
But she picked him right back up to feed him, and I had trouble making her leave him alone from that point on.
PT likes...? eww
Gabe comes home from work to find out he's a daddy! I don't think Trista ever told him they were expecting.
After I FINALLY get Trista to set Lucas down and do something on her own, PT plays with him for a bit. Aww, theyz cute together! :]
With the paycheck Gabe brought home today (and a bonus from his promotion) I finish adding on to the house. Well, finished for now. I think I have an idea about what I want to do with the rest of it.
Well, Gabe went out to stargaze and he was abducted. I don't have a pic though... Right away Trista went looking for him.
And I found that PT decided to stay the night. (WHY?)
Finally, around dawn, Gabe is back!
Trista wakes up when Gabe (who doesn't look all 'there' if ya know what I mean) walks through the front door.
She's so happy that he's back!
PT left around then, and Gabe went to rest on the bed. He wasn't really tired. While he had been abducted his needs were going up and down like crazy!
Trista was looking through the telescope during the day, and the neighbor came over all upset. Though, Trista in turn got up in his face and I'm thinking he regrets even bothering to come over.
But... isn't that guy from Strangetown? The Ishkabibbles like in Weirdsville, a sub-neighborhood to Strangetown. How did she see into his house?
Anway, after breakfast Gabe starts thinkin' he might be preggers! :O
And I will end it here because A} this thing is already far too long, and B} I'm out of pictures! As soon as I exchange the backup files for the screwed up files, I plan on playing again. So hopefully there will be an update #2 soon!
PS| the Robert's family "side story" will be coming up soon! I just have to go back for a few more photos :]
