Chapter 4.0: A Single Man of Good Fortune and All That

Darcy was announced last chapter as the heir to generation four and now his job is to raise generation five! But first we still have Frederick, Georgiana, and Elliot in the house. Frederick will move out with Georgiana and Elliot when they become teens.

Darcy calls up the travel agency and books a trip to Selvadorada for himself and his cousin Frederick. Darcy wants to get out of the house and experience the world before he has to settle down and raise kids.

He meets some interesting locals and learns about the local culture.

02-01-19_2-26-29 PM.pngDarcy notices the stars are particularly bright in Selvadorada compared to his home in Brindleton Bay, or maybe he never took the time to appreciate them until now.

Frederick took advantage of the swimming pool before heading out to the local market place. He bought some souvenirs to remember his trip and got to chatting up the locals about the area and what he could expect to see and experience in Selvadorada.

Darcy: Hey Alison, it’s me, Darcy….from the bar last night.

Alison: Yes, I remember you. Practically the only other redhead here in Selvadorada. What can I do for you?

Darcy: Oh man, all this food looks so good….I don’t suppose, I mean, would it be too much to ask if I get a discount on your lovely food. Especially if I take you out later?

Alison: Well….I don’t know….this food is already at a good price….but you drive a hard bargain…Sure! Just don’t forget out date!

02-01-19_2-45-16 PM.pngDarcy: Wow! I wasn’t expecting it to be so spicy, but it’s really good!

Alison: I’m glad I can make your trip to Selvadorada a pleasurable one!

After eating he local cuisine Darcy purchased some supplies and headed out to explore the rich history that is Selvadorada.

The jungles of Selvadorada can be and exciting but dangerous place. While Darcy was fishing and admiring the runes of a civilization long past he was startled to see an alligator….or was it a crocodile….Either way he booked it out of their quickly and stubbled his way into a temple.

He was able to uncover some of the temples secrets before it was time to head home.

02-01-19_3-35-36 PM.pngBack at home he didn’t forget his promise to Alison and invited her to a Windenburg bonfire.

Darcy and Alison spent the majority of their night talking and dancing.They learned they  both shared a passion to dance. Before the night was over they exchanged contact information so they could get to know eachother better.

02-01-19_3-33-51 PM.pngWhile Darcy and Frederick were out adventuring Vex was promoted to Minor Leaguer.

02-01-19_4-35-45 PM.pngPoor Frederick was exhausted buy his trip he didn’t make it to his bed, though he was so close!

02-01-19_4-50-58 PM.pngGeorgiana: Thanks dad for helping me with this project.

Percy: Anything to spend some time with my baby girl.

Georgiana: Daaaaddddddddd I’m not so little anymore and Jane is your baby girl now.

Percy: You both are my baby girls….that never changes.

02-01-19_6-11-01 PM.pngDarcy: And so the dinosaurs lived happily ever after. The End. *whispers under breath* You are going to be so disappointed when you learn the truth about dinosaurs.

02-01-19_6-12-02 PM.pngWhile Darcy got a job in the Tech career Frederick got a job in the gardening career.

02-01-19_6-33-57 PM.pngHappy birthday Jane!

02-01-19_6-45-29 PM.pngJane rolled Outgoing just like her dad and big brother. She is also and Artistic Prodigy.

I can’t remember if it’s neighborhood brawl day or Vex just challenged Percy to a spar but Vex won.

02-01-19_7-03-41 PM.pngPercy: I honor the Harwood founders Pearl and Paolo may you continue to grace us with your ghostly presence.

02-01-19_7-31-01 PMDarcy: Thanks for coming Ali, even though it’s raining like crazy.

Ali: Oh the rain doesn’t bother me, and I like spending time with you.

Darcy: I like spending time with you too!*smooch* I hope that was ok.

Ali: More than ok it was the best first kiss ever!

Darcy: I know you said you don’t mind the rain, but how about we move our date to a cafe?

In the way of sims the couple goes from their first kiss, to going steady, and finally to a proposal.

02-01-19_7-50-46 PM.pngAfter Darcy gets home from his date with Ali he reaches level 10 in the Programming skill. He still needs a couple of more hours on the computer and to reach level 5 in the Tech Guru career.

02-01-19_8-17-45 PM.pngPoor Georgiana was just coming out of the telescope after admiring the cosmos to get a shock from the sky.

02-25-19_9-04-32 PM.pngDarcy: Hey dad I just proposed to Ali and she said yes!

Percy: Congratulations son! Hopefully the universe will actually let you two lovebirds get married and not decide that you can’t say your vows for some non-existent reason.

Darcy: Um…..I’m not sure I understand

Frederick: Are you talking about why you and Aunt Harmony never got married? What did the universe have to do with it?

Percy: The universe works in mysterious ways….is all I’m saying.

02-25-19_9-08-16 PM.pngVex is still pretty badass!

02-25-19_9-19-28 PM.pngFrederick got a promotion!

02-25-19_9-18-54 PM.pngVax is a daily visitor. I thought I gave Scanlan a key to the house as well, but he doesn’t come over so maybe I didn’t? Next time I open up the game I’ll have to visit him.

Elliot: Hey Nicola you wanna hear a joke.

Nicola: Sure, I love a good joke!

Elliot: Ok so If you’re an American going into the bathroom, and an American coming out of the bathroom what are you in the bathroom?

Nicola: Um…………

Elliot: European!

Nicola: Um………….OH………hahaha I get it! That was a pretty bad joke, but it was kind of funny in how bad it was.

02-25-19_9-32-58 PM.pngVex was more productive in her day than her son Elliot while he was telling bad jokes she achieved a promotion.

02-25-19_9-53-36 PM.pngPercy: Honey, I want to support you in your creative endeavors, but you really need to stop painting the floors.

Jane: But dad, the floor is my canvas. It was calling to me!

Percy: We have an art table for when the creative muses come calling.

Jane: You don’t understand. The artist doesn’t pick the art, the art picks the artist!

Percy: Just clean it up and don’t do it again.

Harmony: After all of these years you still make my heart flutter.

Percy: Same for me.

Harmony: You sure that’s not you just getting older, maybe you should get that check out.

Percy: Ouch! Nothing like the love of your life calling you old.

02-25-19_10-36-45 PM.pngDarcy is getting close to completing his aspiration. He is a level 4 in his career, but he is getting close!

02-28-19_10-03-15 AM.pngPercy: Son, I’m so excited that you’re getting married. I’m sorry if I didn’t properly express that earlier. Sharing my life with your mom was the most amazing thing that I was able to experience, outside of having you and your sisters of course!

Darcy:  I know dad, but thanks for saying it.

02-28-19_10-06-12 AM.pngPercy completes a milestone then gets a couple of achievements.

02-28-19_10-07-02 AM.png

The most interesting sim in the world being one of them. The first time I got this achievement in the game!

02-28-19_10-16-59 AM.pngDarcy: Dad, are you ok?

Percy: I suddenly don’t feel very good.

02-28-19_10-17-28 AM.pngPercy: I think I’ll lay down here….

02-28-19_10-17-42 AM.pngDarcy: Dad no!

02-28-19_10-18-08 AM.pngGrimm: Ah jeez, another big family. It’s so much easier when I don’t have to deal with the water works. Whelp work calls.

Darcy: Please Grimm, don’t take him yet. It can’t be his time, it just can’t!

Grimm: Sorry kid, he’s lived a good and long life. Don’t worry though if you keep this urn around, like I know you legacy sims like to, you’ll still get to see him from time to time.

Harmony: *bawling her eyes out* It is SO NOT the same!

02-28-19_10-24-14 AM.pngGoodby Percival, you were one buff sim, maybe even buffer than your great-grandfather Paolo. Percy leaves behind his wife (In my eyes, but apparently not the games), three kids Darcy, Georgiana, and Jane. All of his siblings are currently alive; Scanlan is a vampire so will probably never die. And he has many nieces and nephews.

Darcy takes his official Portrait as heir to the legacy.

02-28-19_10-38-21 AM.pngVex: Take that, and that! How dare I be sleeping! I wasn’t able to say goodbye to my brother!

A couple of sim hours later Vex got the notification that Hector died as well.

Jane: Yay! Nothing like forced happiness to get over the death of a parent! At least it’s not Winterfest….or Harvestfest.

02-28-19_11-03-55 AM.pngI had to get Fredrick into a good mood, I think he’s in a playful mood, so that he wouldn’t cry while taking his portrait. It took several tries to get enough happy/playful emotions to out ride the sad.

02-28-19_11-10-49 AM.pngAli: So sorry about your dad.

Darcy: Thanks babe, in fact I was wondering if you’d like to move in. I know it seems too soon, but I know having you here will lift the spirits of the house!

Ali: How can I say no to that?

It also is Georgiana’s birthday! Rolles Self-Assured to go along with her Goofball and Vegetarian traits.

I’ll end this chapter introducing you to Darcy’s fiancee Alison Delgado, no relation to the Brindleton Bay Delgados.

She also came with a little bit of a bad reputation. I don’t know what for, but we’ll find out together.


Some Extras before you go!
