The Gallant Legacy *Updated 5/24/18* NO LONGER ON HIATUS

Postby MonaLisa » January 5th, 2017, 1:58 pm

Hi everyone! First time legacy poster here, so I'm a little nervous. :melting:

Anyway! I'm starting out with my founder Brienne Gallant, the toughest and most knightly woman in Sunset Valley.

Image

Or. Er. Something like that, anyway.

I'll be posting it on my wordpress site, here. Check it out and let me know if you like it! :bounce:

Thanks! <3 -Mo

This is wonderful!

Spoiler:
Chapter 1-
I love Brienne - BOTH Briennes! I also loved your legacy "cliche" count. That's just hilarious.
Dogs are the best thing in the Sims 3. Bring home a Tiberium Gem? GOOD BOY. LOOK AT OUR HOUSE NOW!
(is reading along and realizes it's a girl)
I stand corrected.
GOOD GIRL.
Done.

Chapter 2-
Oh gods, the sweating profusely moodlet? I'm like "BUT I'VE ONLY LEFT YOU OUTSIDE FOR FOUR DAYS. TOUGH IT OUT."
Hahaha I adore the conversation between Brienne and Hank.
"Whatever you say, rookie."
Hehe, I love the "lost at chess" reaction. "I will not be vanquished" indeed. That's how I feel when playing chess too. I feel you, Brienne, I'm too competitive for this shit.
I love that you're taking your time with the spouse and stuff. I'll be honest the only reason I remember initial spouses in most legacies is because I've played them all before. It's nice to have time to establish the founder and then add the spouse... I feel like I'll be inclined to remember them more.

Chapter 3-
I find it amusing that you pick Jared simply because his personality reminds me of Jamie (Jaime? Crap).
HANK FOR THE WIN. YOU GOT THIS BRIENNE.
That was hilarious.
Person-Person-Minus.
Damn. SO CLOSE.
Oh the glorious horse interlude.
"You're making this very difficult, Jared."
I concur.
It's amusing because it mirrors Brienne/Jaime (Jamie?! I give up!) so well.
FIVE TIMES?
I get salty after one and say that person isn't good enough for my characters...
HAHAHAHAHA. That gif. Heart-eyes indeed! Determination and time seems to have won Jared over though. Loving this so much.

Chapter 4-
Jared 'Scream-Machine' Frio... LMAO.
Tiff is such a fitting dog into this legacy it's amazing.
Oh true love... this is hilarious. You're too good at this.
JARED ISN'T THE KING OF REJECTION FOR NOTHING. GET IT JARED.
Brienne looks so happy about that salad... and Jared's like "babe... babe... it's a salad... I promise we'll have better food soon."
"MY FAVORITE."
"What have you eaten your whole life?!"
Baby time!
Alright, all caught up here, time to leave some wordpress comments!

Oh my gosh thank you both so much! Your comments really made my day, you have no idea!

*me realizing people are actually reading my legacy like*: :jawdrop:

Spoiler:
Haha, it's totally okay, I keep having to remind myself the dog's a girl too.

Hank is an absolute sweetheart in every game I play, I swear. That man is a true cinnamon roll.

Oh wow. Jared/Brienne really does resemble Jaime/Brienne. Wish I could've capitalized on that earlier :duh:
I was getting pretty salty around rejection 2, tbh, which is why I stopped taking pictures after that. The only reason I stuck around is because Jared Frio was LITERALLY THE ONLY SINGLE MAN IN TOWN, and I don't really see Brienne as a homewrecker. If the nighttime date hadn't worked out I would've given up, but thankfully Jared finally gave in! But, yeah, after five rejections I really wasn't in the mood to fuck around with getting married(with my luck he would have left her at the altar) so I sped through all the romantic interactions pretty fast.

Jared is so goddamn extra, it's ridiculous. I visualize him as this massive drama queen grouch who aggressively takes care of people he likes and is horrified by Brienne's low standards for...well everything.

I'm so glad you guys are not only reading it but enjoying it! The next chapter will be up tomorrow afternoon, and we get into some Frio family drama!

Spoiler:
Ahh! A little one!
The chapter is aptly named, I feel. MAN those sims can stir up the drama pot when they want. It's amusing and also a little sad sometimes how easy you can narrate said pot-stirrings.
I did leave a comment there, but you should know that your story is hilarious and fun to read! Keep on trucking and good luck with your mac computer! I hear it can be an uphill battle sometimes (stares at mpart).
Eleanor will certainly be a child of brawn, brain, AND beauty with a mom like Brienne. ;)

The title is brilliant.

Yay! Another update! Don't worry about sticking to a schedule of any variety.
