Chapter 1.0: Skilling Adventures with the Harwoods

Last chapter Kunzite, the third and final child was, born. The twins were skilling machines and Malachite was named heir.  Paolo got a promotion (I almost typed bro-motion, I kid you not!) to the bodybuilder branch of the athletic career. And Pearl switched from being in the entertainment career to the science career.

Let’s see what the Harwoods are up to now.

Pearl: “Hey would you mind being my own personal guinea pig. I need to try out a new invention I made. You know the geeks in R and D love test runs.”

Co-worker: “Um…you know…I’m no….”

Pearl: “Okay!” *freezes co-worker before she has a chance to say no*

Don’t worry I had Pearl unfreeze her immediately. She’s not evil you guys.

Since Kunzite has the same aspiration as his sister Garnet I had them both go to the park to chat up the locals. Garnet brought along her friends Minkz and Isiah for Kunzite to befriend while she worked on gaining 2 adult friends.

08-15-16_5-05-11 PMOh look it’s Randy Holliday! The D.J. that hates children. They actually had a pleasant conversation despite Randy’s dislike for kids.

08-15-16_5-26-44 PMGarnet: “Hey bro! I missed you. Wish you could have joined me at the park.”

Kunzite: “Hey I was at the park! You could have talked to me!”

Sorry kiddo they are twins plus best friends. Actually all three children are good friends with each other, but there is a special bond between Malachite and Garnet.

08-15-16_5-30-21 PM

Paolo: “Honey you need to hit the bag with more force than that! Common” you can do better!”

Pearl: “How about I punch you in the face?”

Paolo: “I’m just trying to encourage you.”

Pearl: “Yeah. Encouraging me to hit you in the face.”

Paolo now has to mentor sims for his daily work task. It’s slow going let me tell you.

08-15-16_5-31-15 PMThe monster strikes again! This was before I learned of a special light that keeps the monster away.

Kunzite: “What! You mean for the whole rest of the chapter I suffer through monster attacks when I could be sleeping!?”

Well just think you could be sleeping through the whole next chapter. Readers might even forget who you are.

Kunzite: “Uh…maybe the monster makes things more interesting?”

08-15-16_5-47-49 PMThis is just to display Kunzite’s special ability to walk through a room and make every thing break.

08-15-16_5-50-13 PMI think it’s a little unfair that sims can’t use the phone to purchase medicine like they can on the computer. Poor Paolo had to call in sick for work. And then his boss had the nerve to act like Paolo was faking it.

08-15-16_6-23-00 PMMalachite has to earn an A for the whiz kid aspiration. And he is so close!

08-15-16_6-28-49 PMThese two just being adorable.

08-15-16_6-46-40 PMGarnet: “Hello. I heard there were some new kids in town and I just came by to say hi!”

Madeline: “Careful bro she’s a legacy sim. She’s just using you to complete her aspiration!”

These two are Madeline and Myron Hartley (created by stinortor) and they are from the #legacyloves in the gallery.

08-15-16_7-00-49 PMGarnet has now completed the social butterfly aspiration with the friendship of Myron here. She is now working towards artistic prodigy.

I do want to keep an eye on Myron because he is adorable. And I am aware that I use that adjective way too much.

08-15-16_7-24-06 PMThe next morning Kunzite manages to set himself on fire as well as most of what little house they have.

Kunzite: “But Mal makes it look so easy.” 😦

Mal: *yells from across the lawn* “That’s because I know what I’m doing dude!”

Paolo goes to the gym to work on his daily task. I’m having a hard time with this one he needs to mentor several adult sims to get the task completed. Maybe he just needs more friends.

08-17-16_6-47-42 PMI broke down and got Mal (really the whole Harwood family) a chess set. I think sims achieve mental skill much faster with it and also Kunzite gets to use his social skills.

08-17-16_7-15-49 PMKunzite: “Oh mom will you be my best friend? None of the other kids have high enough friendship levels with me.”

Pearl: “Of course we can be best friends honey!”

Kunzite is now on the final tier of the social butterfly skill.

08-17-16_7-19-41 PMThe Garden Gnomes come for a visit to help Pearl with her ever growing garden.

08-17-16_9-40-08 AMThis explosion marks the third and final emotion potion that Mal had to make for his aspiration. And he finally received an A form school. Now all he needs is to master out the mental skill before his birthday in 2 days. He’s level 8 or 9 by now so hopefully he can achieve it.

08-17-16_9-42-32 AMKunzite: ” Hey Garnet, how is playing with toys supposed to help you with the artistic prodigy aspiration?”

Garnet: “Well using you imagination gets the creative juices flowing.”

Kunzite: “Oh”

08-17-16_9-47-35 AMKunzite: “Happy Birthday mom!”

Pearl: ” Thanks pickle!”

08-17-16_9-48-13 AMPearl: “Yes that’s right ladies and gents. I am finally joining my husband in adulthood.”

08-17-16_9-49-37 AMPearl: “Yeah! I still got it!”

08-17-16_11-45-25 AMPearl painted Paolo’s portrait. I might have her re-due it, but it’s not too bad.

08-19-16_8-13-50 PMAnd Pearl got very inception with her portrait.

Here is our little overachiever completing her second aspiration before her brother can complete his first.

08-17-16_11-01-16 AMFather and son bonding. Also new couch. My pictures somehow get a little out of order and I don’t know why; so annoying!

08-17-16_11-00-40 AMMal finally completed his aspiration, and with no time to spare because it’s the twins birthday.

Make some good wishes you too!

8f8221d5-0420-49f4-b047-203bbf44e36dMal adds Lazy to his traits.

Paolo: “What?! How can a child of mine be lazy!”

Mal: “I’m not you dad. I’m my own man!”

1b5aca04-3a2a-4ff8-b808-ba15644f84bdHowever Garnet does add active to her traits.

Paolo: “That’s my girl!”

Garnet: “That’s young woman now dad!”

Paolo: “NO! Nope! You are forever my little girl!”

I think the twins should switch aspirations. I mean Mal was the whiz kid and Garnet was the social butterfly. But maybe the twins like to switch off every now and then.

Also dear readers this is where I leave you. Will the Harwoods EVER get off the lawn? Will Paolo get over the fact that his son is lazy?

Kunzite: “What about me! There’s still hope for me!”

Chapter 0.3: Precious Pearls


Welcome back to another chapter of the Harwood Legacy! Last time Pearl met and married Paolo Rocca, and they are super adorable together! They had the twins Malachite and Garnet, both of whom are creative. Paolo is almost done with his aspiration of bodybuilder and Pearl is slowly but surely completing hers. So let’s get back to it! Today we will do without a title page because my computer is going to crap out on me!

08-14-16_9-25-56 PMWe’ll start off this chapter with the twins working on their aspirations. Malachite challenges Olivia Spencer-Kim-Lewis to 3 chess games thus completing one of the two challenges on the wiz kid aspirations first tier.

And in the back ground Garnet is working on her social butterfly aspiration.

08-14-16_9-24-33 PMGarnet: “Oh…hey, how are you?!”

Isiah Latham: *gives Garnet the stink eye* “….”

Garnet, just like Pearl, makes people a little uneasy the first time they meet her. I don’t know why she’s perfectly likable, but sims don’t seem to know how to deal with the over-exuberance in which Garnet and Pearl seem to exude.

Despite the stink eye Isiah is giving Garnet they become fast friends and soon there after Garnet completes the first tier of the social butterfly aspiration.

08-14-16_9-37-41 PM

This picture is just too adorable not to put in the chapter. Garnet is making silly faces while socializing with Isiah and playing on the pirate ship. Man I love the sims 4!

Also she reached level 5 of the social skill by the time they have to go home. She is just flying through this aspiration!

Malachite also pulls some precious faces as he cheats his way through chess. Olivia doesn’t catch him though, so maybe he has a future as a thief?

08-14-16_9-45-39 PMWhen Malachite is done with his chess games he comes over to play with Isiah.

Mal: “What are your intentions with my sister!”

Isiah: “Who? Me? Were just friends buddy and we share a common trait as creative sims.”

Mal: “Well ok…I mean you are creative like me as well so you can’t be all that bad. But if you hurt my sister I’ll make sure this cannon shoots more than just bubbles!”

Isiah: “Oooookaaaayyyy then.”*nervously laughs*

08-14-16_9-17-21 PMMeanwhile Paolo works on his aspiration. I believe he is level seven athletic at this point.

08-14-16_6-26-55 PMBefore the day is done a very pregnant Pearl helps the twins with their homework.

08-14-16_10-10-19 PMPaolo starts to read to his son for Mal’s aspiration of an adult reading to him for 4 hours, however Paolo reads for like 5 seconds and then puts the book down. This also happened with Pearl so I eventually buy a new book shelf and place it in a different location and that fixed the problem.

08-14-16_10-10-43 PMPearl quits her job in the entertainment branch and joins the science career instead. I feel like the science career fits Pearl better and it allows her to actually work on her aspiration.

08-14-16_10-13-33 PMAnd speaking of working on her aspiration! Pearl waters and weeds her garden and comes up with some breakthroughs for the science career. I will eventually get some pots for her plants, but not until I actually build them a house!

08-14-16_10-25-04 PMAnd the monster under the bed makes his first appearance in this legacy. Luckily the twins were able to get full nights rest before it woke them up in terror. Hopefully this won’t become an issue like it did in my undocumented 100 baby challenge. Those poor kids got up several times a night due to the monster.

08-14-16_10-29-51 PMHey Pearl whats up?

Pearl: First the bathroom walls are down. Secondly Paolo got food out of the fridge and it didn’t magically close like it usually does. and Thirdly I’m in labor. I think I’d like to go to the hospital this time around.

Pearl:”Now you freak out. I give a home birth with no doctors and no modern medicine and you are totally non pulsed. But now that we’re in a place literally crawling with doctor’s and nurse’s you take time to do the pre-parental panic! I mean we already have two kids!

Paolo” “We’re at a hospital! Hospitals freak me out!

Pearl is not amused.

Pearl: “Oh hey I’m here to sign in”

Sonja: “Okay just give me a moment I’m trying to reach a high score in blick block.”

Pearl: “Okay…well no rush…I mean I’m just about to give birth and all.”

It seemed to take forever for Sonja to even acknowledge Pearl. I think my game is just laggy 😦

08-14-16_10-38-07 PMWhile pearl goes through the painful process of giving birth a thought runs through my head…Where is Paolo?

08-14-16_10-41-54 PMI found him in the hospital gym working out.

Paolo: “Hey I told you hospitals freak me out! Hey at least I’m still in the building and I didn’t run home!”

I actually had a sim do that once, he showed up with the mom and then peace’d out.

08-14-16_10-47-33 PMEveryone meet baby boy Kunzite Harwood!

08-14-16_10-51-42 PMThe lot loads back and this is what I find on my return. Pearl seems to have forgiven Paolo for not being there at the birth of their third and final child.

Paolo: “Hey I was there in spirit.”

08-15-16_8-52-53 AMKunzite is only slightly more difficult to take care of then the twins were. He seems to soil his diapers more often, but that’s about it. I also picked the name Kunzite because, not only does it fit with the name theme for this generation but also because of Sailor Moon!

So with the birth of the third and final child I now can find out who is going to run this legacy next. Drum roll please!……The heir is Malachite!

I used a random name picker to determine who was going to be heir.

Pearls first day at work was a success. She was promoted to Apprentice Inventor!

08-15-16_9-35-01 AMLook who also got promoted. Paolo is now on the bodybuilder path of the athletic career. Although I have to say for a sim who reached his maximum body potential he still looks rather skinny. Maybe because he boxes instead of weight lifts? Or he is just naturally skinny.

With the two promotions I was finally able to at least build Paolo and Pearl a room. I attached the bathroom and made it bigger. I wont bother to show you the bathroom because it looks the same just a little bit bigger. Also Kunzite is in his parents room so he doesn’t wake up the twins.

08-15-16_9-58-38 AMThe twins being super cute! And also they are BFF’s now which completes the second tier of the social butterfly aspiration for Garnet.

08-15-16_10-32-18 AMGarnet: “Hello there baby. You are very squirmy aren’t you?”

The look Garnet is giving her little brother is amusing. She cant decide if she is giving him goo gaga face or “if I touch him is he going to fall apart” look.

08-15-16_10-38-40 AMGarnet goes to the park to make some friends for her aspiration. She meets Minkz Dumas and they become fast friends. Garnet learns that he is a kleptomaniac.

08-15-16_10-53-02 AMWhile Garnet is making friends, Malachite is collecting quite the following. He is working on his mental skill; I believe he has to reach level 5.

Later that day is Paolo’s adult birthday. Everyone was at home however Garnet and her friend Isiah were the only two to celebrate with Paolo.

08-15-16_11-21-45 AM

Pearl: “Hey there good lookin’!”

I think Pearl is still in the third tier of Freelance Botanist. She’s already grafted 3 plants and federalized 5 plants so now she just has to get to level 6 gardening skill.

08-15-16_11-31-09 AMIts Kunzite’s birthday and he grew up in ok clothes, but I think I can do better, so time to change little man!

Kunzite-TraitsSo Kunzite here gaind the Cheerful trait like his mom. He got his mom’s hair color and dad’s eye color. He looks a lot like Malachite, although I don’t think he looks exactly like him I will put up pictures of all three kids together.

Anyway here they all are. I will leave you here. I think this is a good length.

Next time will there actually be a house or will the Harwoods still be lawn living? What kind of heir will Malachite be? Find out next time!

Chapter 0.2: Every occasion calls for Pearls

Harwood 0.2Title

Welcome Back! Last time Pearl was struggling to find that special someone in her life, get a promotion, and find a place to pee that wasn’t a bush. Lets see what other escapades Pearl can get into.

08-07-16_1-17-09 PMPearl goes to The Lounge in Oasis Springs to work on her daily task for her job.

Lady at the Microphone: “Uh…hey…do you mind I’m trying to do a routine here!”

Pearl: ” Oh…I’m just giving your routine a lovely musical accompaniment.”

Lady: “You.Are. Stealing. My. Stage. Time.!”

Pearl: ” Sharing is caring. I’m only thinking of you.”

08-07-16_2-54-45 PM

After completing her daily task and quite possibly making an enemy Pearl heads to the Gym for a game Legacy sims like to call Spouse Hunting.

Pearl: “Oh hey there! Nice tats.”

Don:” Nice towel”

Don and Pearl did chat for a bit however he takes off to go get a shower.

08-07-16_3-02-04 PM

Next Pearl meets Ulysses and Paolo. Pearl and Paolo hit it off and soon are ignoring Ulysses all together.

Pearl: “Wow you’re a Music Lover! I’m Creative; that’s kind of the same thing right!?”

Paolo: “Um…sure…why not.” *stares intently at Pearls towel*


Pearl: “Hey Paolo I think our two similar but different traits deserves a hip bump! What do you say?”

Paolo: “I can totally get down with that. But then after we do that I have to jet.”

And so Paolo, as with every other male sim Pearl gets along with, leaves to go do what ever Bro’s go to do. Yep Pearl learns that Paolo is a Bro as well as a Music Lover.

So after meeting two potential spouses that: a) didn’t hate children, and b) actually wanted to hang out with her (even if for a little bit) I had Pearl go collect more items to sell because she is still broke. And then she wanted to view a painting at the museum so I thought “why the hell not?”

08-07-16_3-25-00 PM

So later that same day Peal decides to invite Don and Paolo over to get to know them a bit better.

Pearl: “Oh hey you guys! Are you two twins or something because you’re practically wearing the same thing, both have tattoos, and both of you are active. So what gives?”

Paolo: “I’m not sure I like the comparison between an awesome bro like myself and a serial romantic.”

After a having a little chat with Don Pearl finds out that Don is Non-Committal and pretty much ignores him in favor of Paolo.

Don: “Hey what am I? Chopped liver?”

Don: “Um…hello! Earth to Paolo and Pearl!”

08-07-16_3-36-15 PM

Don: “Really! You two are exchanging numbers now!”

Don is side glaring at Paolo so hard. I found it quite amusing.

Needless to say Don was not amused and soon after this picture was taken he left without so much as a goodbye.

The next day was Pearl’s day off so she invited Paolo to the park for a date. They hit it off immediately and I cannot get over how stink’in adorable these two are. Even their names go together: Pearl and Paolo.

08-07-16_3-58-22 PM

Pearl: “Paolo I know we only met yesterday, but we are just perfect together! I mean all of our traits compliment each other to the nth degree. Your Active trait to my Loves the Outdoors trait. My Creative trait to your Music lover trait. Your Bro to my Cheerful!

“What I’m trying to say is: Will you be my boyfriend?”

Paolo: “I couldn’t agree more! I’m totally into you babe.”

Pearl: *squeeeee!*

08-07-16_3-59-43 PM

Pearl: “Oh I’m so glad you said yes because what I really want to know is will you spend your life with me?!”

Paolo: ” Why the heck not?! Yes!”

*Please ignore the plumbob in the picture.*

Just more unmitigated adorableness from these two. Can’t. Take. The. Cute!


I decided to have them get married right then and there because lets face it this is the founding generation so there is not any money to spend on a proper wedding and more importantly because I can! *Muhahahahh* Uhem please excuse the evil laughter.

Anyway, Paolo had to go to work after the wedding so Pearl was left to do some more collecting and gardening. I believe at this point she is a level 2 in the gardening skill. I fear her aspiration is going to take me forever to complete.

Between what collectibles Pearl was able to sell and what Paolo brought home form work I was able to get the couple a decent double bed, a sink, mirror, and a toilet.

So without further delay lets introduce Paolo into the Harwood Legacy!


So Paolo came into this family with a job in the athletic career. And I like most of his wardrobe I just changed some clothes in his every day because I though he was dressed too much like Don Lothario.

08-07-16_6-03-23 PM

When Paolo gets home from work the couple is able to celebrate their marriage. Unfortunately this does not result in a pregnancy.

08-07-16_6-13-05 PM

Paolo: “That’s alright man. It only means we can keep trying; and trying is the fun part!”

I just love this picture. He was sitting so causally seemly looking in my direction with an expression on his face that seemed to say “Hey, what’s up? You want to talk about it?”

I send Paolo to the gym to work on his daily task for work as well as his aspiration. He’s there for like 2 hours and already completes “work out for 8 hours” part of his aspiration so the game must have counted the time he spent working out towards his aspiration  before he moved in with Pearl. Plus hes working out a the gym so he just completed the first tier of his aspiration!

Also Bro hugs with J Huntington the 3rd. Who I think is wearing exactly the same shirt as Don Lothario. Is this some sort of commentary on active male sims?

08-07-16_6-47-21 PM

So for the second tier of his aspiration he has to reach level 4 of the athletics skill;which he has already completed, Own 2 pieces of workout equipment; I bought two punching bags and sold one, so that is also completed. Now the only thing that is left is to Push the limits for 1 hour while energized. That’s easy enough!

08-07-16_7-05-03 PM

Pearl has been focusing more on her job than her aspiration. So I am seriously considering changing her to the science branch, but she is so close to a promotion that I think I will wait until she gets it before changing careers.

Pearl is working on her Gardening skill. I think she just reached level 3 here.

Paolo: “Babe you are so workin’ it right now!”

Paolo autonomously came over to flirt with his wife ❤

Paolo: “Hey babe you wanna do it…I wanna do it, so let’s get this party started!”

Pearl: “Honey if you weren’t so mouth watering to look at I would find issue with your lack of romance.”

Paolo: “Oh come on you know you love it when I talk dirty.”

And we have success! Pearl is pregnant. I just missed all the confetti.

08-07-16_9-25-43 PM

Pearl: “Hey honey…guess..what?! I think you’re going to be super psyched about this news!”

08-07-16_9-25-55 PM

Paolo looks super nervous.

Paolo: “Uh..what is is honey?”

Pearl: “We’re going to be parents! Isn’t that the greatest news!”

08-07-16_9-26-06 PMPaolo: “What! I mean we still live on a lawn…and…and we just managed to afford to put four walls around our bathroom. And the bills are coming soon! Are you sure?!”

Pearl: “100 %!”

Paolo: “Oh…okay…well I think I’m going to take a nap now…” *mumbles to himself on how utterly broke they are and his wife is way too cheerful about this.*

08-07-16_9-26-54 PMI just love this picture. Paolo is going down for a nap but it looks like he and Pearl are having a good laugh about the situation they are in.

Pearl decided to join the Gardening Gnomes club to boost her gardening skill, however there was no gardening to be done at Hare Park so she and her club members spent their time fishing.

Back on the ranch the Harwoods were finally able to afford a counter so they can make salads. However Pearl ends up chopping her fingers instead, but looks way to happy that she did. Also first broken toilet, or first broken any thing for that matter, of the legacy.

Paolo: *whispers* “Don’t tell my wife this…but I think her fruit salad is terrible.”

That’s probably because she bleed into know from cutting her fingers.

Paolo:”I think I’m gonna be sick.”

08-09-16_7-01-31 PM

Paolo has now finished level 3 of his aspiration. He also is at his Maximum body potential so now all he has to do is get to level 10 of athletics, at the moment he is level 7. I think Paolo is going to be my first sim to complete his aspiration before he becomes an adult!

08-09-16_7-04-34 PMPaolo: “Hey sexy get over here for some sugar!”

Autonomous kissing is ❤

Pearl invited the Garden Gnomes over to  help her out with her garden. And afterwards Bjorn Bjergsen thought it a great idea to rummage though their trash bin.

Pearl: “Find what ever it is you’re looking for Bjorn?”

Bjorn: “Nope. Man you have a lot of trash in here.”

Pearl: “Well…that is were trash goes…in the trash can.”

Bjorn: *gasp* “Shut your mouth! There be treasure in here….well except your trash can.”

08-09-16_7-24-28 PM

Look how super cute Paolo looks in his Mascot Uniform! Paolo is of course at level 3 in the Athletic career. Also at this point Pearl is level 2 in the Entertainer career.

Pearl has finished the part of evolving 5 plants now she just has to reach level 4 gardening. Why is this taking me so long! Also I broke down and got Pearl an Easel. I figured it will pay me back shortly.

Pearl: “Okay…what is this?”

A moodlet solver. It will make you feel oh so good!

Pearl: “Should it be exploding like that?”

Of course that’s how how you know it works.

Pearl: “Well if this harms the baby I’m going to come after you with razor blades.K!?”


These two just being super adorable again.

08-09-16_8-22-49 PMSo I heard that pregnant sims can’t get electrocuted or set on fire. So I had Pearl fix the fridge. Plus she has a higher handy skill than Paolo does. Also I was able to get a guitar. Also Pearl was promoted to C-Lister.

08-09-16_8-39-49 PM

Pearl: “Hey I’m back from work already cuz apparently you can’t give birth at work so…”

08-09-16_8-44-04 PMPaolo: “Bey Bae guess who got promoted at work today…that’s right yours truly! Dance Team Captain all the way!”

Pearl :”That’s nice dear, I’m in labor by the way.”

Paolo: “Oh…cool, cool”

08-09-16_8-44-43 PMPaolo did not even panic that his wife was in labor; in fact I don’t think he even noticed she was in labor. He just drank his moodlet solver and went about his business.

Pearl: “This is a little disconcerting.”

08-09-16_8-51-57 PMPearl: “Hey honey I’m about to push!”

Paolo: “That’s great! I’m just leveling up my charisma. It’s so nice to be able to share these moments with you.”

08-09-16_8-53-50 PMWith Paolo not even looking away from his mirror even once he missed his son being born. That’s right we have a boy! His name is Malachite and…wait…what’s this…

08-09-16_8-54-24 PMAnother bassinet? Yep we have twins people! Everyone meet baby girl Garnet!

08-09-16_9-04-06 PMNot even a sim hour goes by before Pearl is makin’ moves on her hubby.

Pearl: “I know I just gave birth but I’m feelin’ some sexy time coming on! What do ya say Paolo?”

Paolo: “I never pass up sexy time.”

08-09-16_9-11-24 PMPaolo: “Hey Bebe we are so killin it as parents!”

Pearl: “Yeah I think we got this down!”

08-09-16_9-23-51 PMI see the confetti flying’ and I look over to see Paolo’s face having an Oh s*@t moment.

Pearl:”Honey guess what? We’re Pregnant!”

08-09-16_9-24-34 PMJust the look of utter uncertainty on his fave had me cracking up!

Paolo: “But the twins aren’t even a day old!”

Pearl: “I know but we are only having three and I want them to be of a similar age.”

Paolo: “Okay if you say so…”

08-09-16_9-56-51 PMPaolo: “Um…Bjorn do you mind. I’m trying to have some bonding time with my daughter. And you’re kind of in my bubble space.”

Bjorn: “But I thought we were bonding.”

Paolo: “Um…not so much…no”

08-09-16_10-41-10 PMPearl here just reached level 4 in the gardening skill. FINALLY! Which completes the second tier of her aspiration. We are half way there you guys!

08-09-16_10-57-02 PMNot much else happens and soon it’s the twins birthday. And of course my stupid computer was lagging so I didn’t get a picture of their transformation. Off to the mirror you two!

Mal-Traits ChildMal here is creative like his mom and a whiz kid. Oh and the naming theme for this generation is precious gems.I think he is a really good combination of his parents.

Garnet-traits childThe’re twinsies in their traits as well! However Garnet is a Social Butterfly. Both Mal and Garnet have their dad’s brown hair and their mom’s eye color. I think they both have their dad’s eye shape however Garnet’s eyes are wider like her moms. Anyway I’m super happy with how they have turned out so far and can’t wait to see what shenanigans they get into!

08-09-16_11-29-57 PMBefore I end this chapter I leave you with Mal playing on his phone. It was his very first autonomous action after getting a makeover. Garnet went to sleep in her parents bed.

Will the Harwoods be lawn living forever? Will Pearl’s next baby be a boy or a girl…or will she have another set of twins? Only one way to find out so stay tuned.

Chapter 0.1: I am Pearl…The world is my Oyster

Hi! Its so good to see you! It’s been a while since I have written a legacy, but I’m back at it again so without further ado here is my newest legacy!

There will be no name theme for the legacy as a whole, but the first generation defiantly will have a theme. And you’ll have to keep reading to find out what it is!


I have decided to do an extreme start to this challenge; which, by the way, had me sweating the first sim week…let’s be real I’m still a wreak, but that’s what makes it fun!…right?! *nervous laughter + shifty eyes o.0*

Oh yeah the rules! I’ll be using Pinstar’s Rules.

Gender Laws: Equality: The Founder may be of either gender. Both boys and girls are eligible for the title of heir.

Bloodline Law: Strict Traditional: To be eligible to be named heir a child must be naturally born from their previous-generation parents and be able to trace an unbroken bloodline back to the founder. Adopted children my never be named heir.

Heir Law: Random: The title of heir is randomly selected from the pool of all eligible children. Every time the eligible pool changes size the heir must be re-rolled using the new pool.

Also I’ll be having at least 3 kids per generation.

Pearl-TraitsHere is our beautiful founder Pearl Harwood.

Pearl here is a Freelance Botanist because I figured gardening would be a good way to bring in extra funds. Loves the outdoors…because lawn living, creative because I just love creative sims, and Cheerful because she’s going to need all the help she can get not to feel completely mad that she’ll be living on a lawn for a good while.

3 So like every good little Freelance Botanist does Pearl scopes out the local community gardens in hopes of boosting her aspiration.

08-07-16_10-43-34 AMPearl: “Oh…hey! Hi! How are you I’m Pearl, I’m new in town!”

Sonja: ” I don’t care who you are! If you don’t get your hand out of my face I’m gonna cut you!”

08-07-16_10-43-46 AMOh wow! Yup…Thaaaat looks like it hurts.

Pearl: ” Oh I’m so sorry I got a little carried away in my enthusiasm of meeting new sims in a new place!”

Sonja: “Just put the hand down lady…and back away slowly.”08-07-16_10-45-02 AM After calming herself down and getting her hand out of poor Sonja’s head the two had a lovely little chat.

08-07-16_10-48-08 AMThen Pearl proceeded to water some plants netting her 6/10 for watering plants in the first tier of Freelance Botanist.

9Next up painting. After selling the painting she only made about a§16 profit after paying herself back for how much the painting cost in the first place.

Then Pearl went on a spree of collecting minerals, frogs, and other goodies to sell in order to buy the Knight of the Octagon Table.

Pearl: “Oh Hello! How are you? I’m Pearl!”

Bill: ” Umm…..Okay I guess?”

Bill Joseph was a little unsure of the very cheerful Pearl, however no one can resist Pearl’s insouciant manner. Bill and Pearl became quick friends. However there was more collecting to be done if Pearl was going to be able to afford the Knight of the Octagon Table before the day was over.

08-07-16_11-19-27 AMLuckily Pearl was able to collect enough simoleans just in time! In fact she was only left with §16. The exact amount she sold her first painting for.


Pearl: “Nope…that wasn’t me…move along!’

08-07-16_11-21-30 AMPearl: “Well I guess I should get a job. Can’t live off of 16 simoleans forever.”

I decided Pearl should go into the Entertaining career. At the time it made sense in my head…You know she’s Cheerful yet Creative; however I’m regretting that decision.

08-07-16_11-27-03 AMAnd so as the first day comes to a close Pearl finds herself a bench to curl up on and dream sweet dreams.

08-07-16_11-33-44 AM

Well only a few hours into her nap Pearl was invited out by a sim she meet earlier in the day whom I can’t remember now. However Pearl introduced herself to Mr. Le Chien but she wasn’t feeling what he was putting down so Pearl went into the club to dance the night away.

However dancing wasn’t really all that fun so Pearl soon found a couch to sleep on.

08-07-16_12-01-44 PM

Mortimer: ” You call that music? It sounds like a herd of cats slowly dying!?

Pearl: “Oh sorry about that, but you know what they say! Practice makes perfect.”

Mortimer: “Well I wish you wouldn’t “Practice” in my vicinity. Also I find your cheerful manner disturbing.”

Pearl continued to practice for most of the day. Annoying Mortimer in the process. 08-07-16_12-28-34 PM

The day came and went but by the end of it Sonja invited Pearl out to a dance party. However Pearl just wasn’t feeling it.

Pearl: ” I really have to pee!”

Well go find a bush or something.

Pearl:” A bush! You must be joking!”

Pearl:” I won’t forget this humiliation!”

The next day consisted of Pearl trying to survive on what little she had. Also in the last picture I’m pretty sure she is plotting my demise.

Pearl: ” You may have made me cheerful, but right now I’m seething!”

Poor pearl didn’t even get to eat the salad she made because she had to go to work.

08-07-16_12-54-50 PM

Though She didn’t end up getting a promotion Pearl was able to afford a bed, so no more community lot surfing.

Pearl: “I’m too tired to care at this point.”

08-07-16_1-22-21 PM

Another days work another invite to a party. Pearl was in a pretty good mood so I decided I would use this opportunity to do some spouse hunting. At the start of the party there were only 3 dudes and 2 of them were married.

08-07-16_1-23-32 PM

So I sent Pearl to chat up the only single guy at the party.

Pearl: ” Hey! I’m so much taller than you when I stand on this part of the hill!”

Randy Holliday: “Uh…that’s really great?”

Pearl: ” I think you are a great DJ. I my self am very creative, what about you are you creative?”

Randy: “I hate children. Don’t want the little noise makers.”

Pearl: ” Oh…well…by then.”

I literally wrote in my notes: Randy Holliday ⇒ Hates children ⇒ NOPE!!

After that discouraging conversation I had Pearl collect some more things to sell and then she wanted to light a bonfire so of course I obliged her.

Then another single sim appeared and I had her introduce herself to him. Everyone meet Wayne and despite his unpleasant expression on his face he is a young adult; at first I thought he was an adult. But per usual he left mid conversation. At this point Pearl was half way through her first week and she hadn’t meet any one who could be a potential spouse.  At this point I was starting to get a little worried.

08-07-16_1-38-28 PM

So the party was a bust and Pearl was hungry so I sent her to the park for some good ol’fashioned hot dogs.

08-07-16_1-41-22 PM

She met Wolfgang Munch who proceeded to mock her.

Wolfgang: *mocking voice* “Ohh…I’m Pearl I’m a legacy sim and I live on a lawn…and I don’t even have a romantic interest yet.”

Pearl: ” Well fine…no hot dogs for you then!”

Pearl was finally able to harvest some plants. Here she has a glow fruit, cherry tree, and two mushroom plots. Still no promotion for Pearl however with her job and all of her collecting she was able to able to afford a refrigerator and a shower. Also she now has 10/10 plants watered now all she needs to complete the first tier of her aspiration is to get to level 4 of gardening.


The next morning Pearl really had to pee. To the bush with you woman!

Pearl: “What’s with you and bushes!”

Well there is a bush right next to your plot of land, and that means I won’t have to deal with a loading screen to send you to a public restroom.

Pearl: “Oh…well…”

08-07-16_2-06-40 PM

Pearl : “I didn’t quite make it.” 😦

I just love her pouty face here. She was able to take a shower before going to work so that’s a plus.

So at that fail, I will end the chapter here. Will Pearl find her one true love? Will she be able to afford a toilet so she won’t have to go in the bushes any more? Well you’ll have to wait for the next installment of The Harwood Legacy.
