View Full Version : The Legacy of Erik Richards [Story is Ended due to Tech. Difficulties]
3rd Dec 2006, 2:13 AM
Okay, This is really my first "Legacy" but I'm not playing by the rules. I'm a first time story writer, so feedback is wanted! :]
Hi. I'm Erik. Erik Richards. I'm an average 26 year old guy, who is single...looking for someone to settle down with. I'm a family sim, I pretty much like the whole idea of having six kids running around the house. Until then, one will have to do. I just moved to Pleasantview. I plan to kick off my career, while dating, to find my love, of course.
3rd Dec 2006, 7:21 AM
yeah, another legacy, can't wait to read more.....update please..lol:)
3rd Dec 2006, 1:39 PM
awesome. I'd definely like to read more. it shouldn't be too hard for him to find a lover. updates :D
3rd Dec 2006, 5:38 PM
After settling in, there were a few neighbors to stop by and welcome me to Pleasantview. I was completely thrilled when I met her:
Eliza Drake. She's a beauty. She'd just moved to Pleasantview too. I was ashamed because she was the only neighbor I paid attention too. Boy was she awesome. I talked to her for about half an hour...mostly joking about work. We really hit it off well.
"Hey, um.. Erik, It was nice meeting you."
"Yes, same here. Maybe you could come over sometime and I'll make you dinner..."
"That'll be great. Just give me a ring... bye."
I think I will make her dinner. Maybe a Greek salad, or my famous veggie pizza. I'd better brush up on my cooking skills.

Aw, another legacy ^^ I love legacies!! Is Eliza a townie? Just wondering :P
3rd Dec 2006, 5:51 PM
Nah, she's just a neighbor of Erik. She lives right next to him. It's a legacy, but I'm not playing by the rules. I don't have UNI installed, so I can't make over the townies! :]
3rd Dec 2006, 6:18 PM

3rd Dec 2006, 6:25 PM
Oh right :P Okay xx
3rd Dec 2006, 9:37 PM

4th Dec 2006, 6:28 AM
Looking good so far, i'll definately be checking back for updates :)
5th Dec 2006, 3:17 AM
good job, updates soon :P
5th Dec 2006, 3:39 AM
Thanks!! I'll try to update Wedensday...or Thursday. My week is gonna be pretty busy..with projects and essays. (High School/I.B. Sucks, but it's worth it!)
8th Dec 2006, 1:10 AM
Okay. I gave Eliza a call.
"Yes, it's me. It's nice to speak to you again, Erik."
"Same here, Eliza. I was calling to ask you if you wanted to go out sometime?"
"Sure. I'd love to. It's so nice of you to invite little me to a outing, with you."
"Yeah, It's no problem. I just want to show some hospitality. Maybe get to know you better."
"Okay, I'd like that. I have to go...bye."
Smooth. She sounded suprised to get a call from me. I was suprised that she answered. Maybe I will have a chance at Eliza Drake...
9th Dec 2006, 3:41 PM
How do I look, snappy eh?
I decided to take Eliza out to a dinky little cafe..Cafe' Bueno, as I recall. It was really small, and cramped, but It was only Eliza, and me, dining. It was nice. Romantic music playing in the background, and candles on the table...wow.
"Eliza, I don't want to seem like I'm rushing our relationship, but I really like you."
"Erik, I feel the same way too. It's only been three days, and I feel like I've known you my whole life."
"You're beautiful, intelligent, and we can talk about anything. No other woman can replace you...."
9th Dec 2006, 3:51 PM
I pulled out a little box, and I pushed it near Eliza.
"Go on, open it."
"Aw, Erik, you didn't have to buy me anything."
"Shh...just open it!"
"Oh my goodness..Erik!"
"As I said before, I like you, and I love you. Eliza, will you marry me?"
"Yes, I will marry you. Erik Richards."
It was done. Eliza and I are engaged. I know it's soon, but I think it's for the better. I have realized that I can't live without her.
Mrs. Erik Richards. Sounds nice.
9th Dec 2006, 3:58 PM
Wow, engaged already? lol But yeah, in the game 3 days is a long time :p Cute legacy and I can't wait for babies :)
9th Dec 2006, 4:01 PM
Thanks Bad kay!!
10th Dec 2006, 4:33 PM
Since Eliza and I are engaged now, I decided I was going to start fresh, with a new career. I'm now a Field Sales Representative. How Exciting...not! Work, is great, but I'm more of the home type. I like to sit and read. About food! How odd. But it'll have to do for now.
And, for some odd reason, Eliza agreed to move in with me. There's no room for either one of us. I had to trade in my comfty double bed, for two single beds. Awful! We have been looking around for a house though. There's this beautiful new house around the corner..three bedrooms, two baths..WITH A GARAGE!!! I placed an offer for 16,000...
10th Dec 2006, 6:05 PM
oh, I bet they make cute babies!!!!...........Great update:D
11th Dec 2006, 3:39 AM
Finally some feedback! Thanks Jenny!!! :)
11th Dec 2006, 3:55 AM
The day we moved into our new house, Eliza and I decided that we were going to throw an impromptu wedding party, and get married right in the backyard...and we did. It was a blast! Everyone, well Mortimer and Jake, had a good time. The photographer took numerous pictures, so here are a few form our album...
Mister and Mrs. Erik Richards...sounds so right.
11th Dec 2006, 6:21 AM
Aww cute update. Now for the babies!
14th Dec 2006, 4:15 AM
Thanks!! I'll update Friday, I have semester exams this week and next week! :]
16th Dec 2006, 4:16 PM
As I was cleaning up the dishes from breakfast, I saw Eliza clinching her tummy.
"Liza? Are you okay?"
"Yeah..Sure, I just need to lay down."
"Okay..well call me on my cell if you need anything. Once I finish up here, I'm going to the Market to pick up a couple of things."
When I came back, I caught her out of bed. From the smell of puke in the toilet, she had just came from the bathroom.
"Erik, there's something I have to tell you."
"What is it?"
"Honey, I'm pregnant."
"No, not that..I'm gonna be a daddy!! Oh my goodness! I have to paint the bedroom, go buy a crib..."
"Erik! Slow down! I'm just three months! You have six whole months to do all of that!"
From that point on, I hugged her, and I kissed her tenderly. I'm going to be a dad!
Okay...The story is kinda ho-hum now, but trust me, it's gonna get interesting! :]
16th Dec 2006, 6:05 PM
I noticed a baby in the background of like the second chapter, I wonder if this baby is the same. Hm...?
16th Dec 2006, 6:42 PM
I think that's the sim modder Vengence |(via boolprop)|
Cool update, I'm falling in love with this story! :D
16th Dec 2006, 10:15 PM
Thanks!! Yeh, Its Sim Modder.. I only use it to max some of the needs. I glad you like my story!! :]
18th Dec 2006, 3:26 AM
Sexy, eh? Well, A lot...maybe a few things have happened recently.
Eliza made a new friend, Dana Emerson. I've seen her face before, but I don't know if I've dated her, or ran into her at the Market.
To tell you the truth, my relationship with Eliza has never gotten better! Though, I'm the working man of the house, she's pregnant. Every morning I get up at six to make her favorite blueberry pancakes. I rub her back after I get home...mmm...LOVE.
"Liza, have you ever thought about moving, again?"
"No, not really. Our little house is just right."
"Don't you get tired of walking up those massive steps?"
"Yes, but I make sure I hold on to the railing."
"I'd like a new house. Something smaller. Maybe a one level."
"Honey, we just can't afford it right now. With you working double hours and me at home, this will have to do..."
"Alright, but I have a feeling that I'm going to get a promotion."
Oh, I'll get the promotion. Thanksgiving is near, and our poor house dosen't have enough elbow room for our close friends...
20th Dec 2006, 5:12 AM
Come on..I need more feedback on this story! I know It's a good start, but it's going to get a bit more interesting! :]
Home Sweet Home. I sent Eliza off for a week to some kind of spa for pregnant women. While she had her little mud baths, I hired a contractor to re-build our house on our current lot. I loved the view of the woods and I couldn't let it go.
That next morning, at 3:40 AM, Liza woke me with a loud yell. I hopped out of the bed and started screaming. I didn't know what to do. Was I supposed to call the Paramedics, get some boiled water or what? All I did was stand there in our bedroom and watched her give birth.
Ethan Richards, Six Pounds..Eleven Ounces. Born Friday, November 22..just in time to show off at the Thanksgiving Soiree, tomorrow! Yes!
Thank Heaven! A boy! Yes, Yes, Yes! A son of my own!!
20th Dec 2006, 5:14 AM
Great looking home, I like the landscaping. Good job so far
20th Dec 2006, 5:28 AM
20th Dec 2006, 6:01 AM
beautiful house! great story so far! can't wait to see what happens later in the story. =)
20th Dec 2006, 6:30 AM
I love that little house! so cute.....I had to laugh though when you said "i don't know if I dated her"....and there is no way a pregnant lady would be having mud baths..lol...great update! you are doing good:D
20th Dec 2006, 7:08 AM
there is ababy in the bottom background why?
20th Dec 2006, 1:56 PM
It's sim modder...I'm not playing this legacy by the rules..lol.
Jenny: Thanks! :)
20th Dec 2006, 7:48 PM
I like it. Good job......................!
21st Dec 2006, 2:58 AM
Father and son...that's the way it should be.
I feel sorry for Eliza though.. while she attempted to play with Ethan, he threw up on her!
Also, that night, Ethan was up crying so much, I drank beer until I fell out. Eliza was quite suprised at my alcohol spree.
That night, we celebrated Thanksgiving early...no party, or anything. I figured our neighbors weren't going to come anyway, since they all had family coming to town. I did get a kick out of it. Instead of the traditional turkey, Eliza served up some delicious roast. Oh, and did I mention that I quit my job? Yeah, It was a split decision. I had got an offer from the Pleasantview Times to work as a Typesetter. Since promotions do come easy, I'll soon be on my way to the top..as a Talk Show Host!
21st Dec 2006, 3:47 AM
haha. The picture of Eliza and the baby is funny
21st Dec 2006, 4:35 AM
angelthatishonest: I'm glad you're enjoying it! :]
lonelydoowoop: Yeah, thanks! :)
25th Dec 2006, 1:02 AM
Seriously! I need feedback! I don't want to stop writing this story! This is my favorite family, and I want to share their story with you! People read, but have no comment :(
So, little Ethan finally grew into a toddler, and he has quite the noggin on him. He learned how to walk and talk on the same day! I'm so proud. I just love him too much. Me, on the other hand, I've been too busy with work to even spend time with him and Eliza. I go to work, come home, eat dinner, and go to bed. Between that time, there's no bonding going on with us. That's what we're lacking.
On the flip side, I think Eliza's pregnant again. She's been barfing all over our house. This time, I hope it's a girl. Not that I didn't want a boy, I just want a little variety in our little family.
Happy Holidays! :]
25th Dec 2006, 2:46 AM
Uh oh...no bonding? Could that lead to problems? DUN DUN DUN.
26th Dec 2006, 9:36 PM
26th Dec 2006, 10:13 PM
I'll try.. I'm kinda getting tired of the family..but I will finish the story! I'll probably update tonight. I'm going to play..to get the pics. :]
27th Dec 2006, 5:02 AM
Okay..we moved. Again. We moved out of our two floor and moved into a one floor, two bedroom charmer. I thought it was best.. you know with Eliza and Ethan.
That evening, I came home form work and decided I'd go play with Ethan for a while. Like always, when you toss him in the air..he pukes. And he did. Also that night..Dana decided she'd give me a call. We talked for a while, and I could tell she still had feelings for me. I'm not buying it though.
After I hung up the phone, Eliza confronted me about it.
"I overheard your conversation with your little girlfriend. Does she still have feelings for you?"
"I..I...I don't know."
"Well, do you have feelings for her?"
"No. Eliza why are you asking me this? You know I love you!"
"Oh, well I'm not so sure.."
"Do you have to be so insecure?"
"Look, Eliza..I love you. I would never hurt you."
"Oh Erik..I love you too."
That night her belly bulged..Eliza's having my second child. Yay!
27th Dec 2006, 5:11 AM
aawww no, please continue it! i like a lot legacies, and yours is great! really :D i just want to find out whats up with this Dana lol... would you still update if only me read? haha.. well hopefully more people will commet..
27th Dec 2006, 5:17 AM
Oh, I'm still gonna continue it. I'm glad you like it! :)
27th Dec 2006, 10:12 AM
i like the story. :) i also like the house. nice landscaping.
27th Dec 2006, 6:21 PM
Thanks emopunk_boii5! :)
29th Dec 2006, 3:16 AM
Dana decided to give Eliza a visit. I don't know why, but she's starting to linger around our house a lot.
"Eliza..I'm sorry about the phone call. I never meant it to turn out the way it did."
"Dana, you're full of crap, and you know it! Do you take my for a fool?"
"Well, I know you still have feelings for Erik. Stay away from him and our family!"
"Eliza! Please.. I don't want this to wreck our friendship."
"Stay away from him Dana, and I mean it!"
Unfortunately, Dana hid behind the house and started walking towards the driveway when I pulled up. I was walking towards the mailbox when she appeared.
"Now Erik, you know I can't resist you. I want to have your kids, I want to be your wife.."
"That'll never happen."
"Don't be too sure of yourself..."
She walked away.. I'm not moved by her. I never was. All Dana Emerson wants is money. I'm financially stable, but I'm not rich! Why does she still want me?
That night, at 6:16 PM, a baby girl was born! Elizabeth Richards. Tiny little thing at five pounds, six ounces. She's gonna be a daddy's girl...
Ethan grew in to a child that night, also. He has his mother's eyes, but everything else on him looks like mine. Oh, how time flies. Soon he'll be a teenager.
29th Dec 2006, 3:39 AM
weee... update! dana dana dana.... *shakes head* lets see what happens with her.... keep it up :)
29th Dec 2006, 3:45 AM
29th Dec 2006, 4:17 AM
Its really cool i like it
30th Dec 2006, 1:55 AM
Ooo! update! i really like this story, have you ever thought of (when you're done) collecting the whole thing and turning it into an album?
your pictures are really nice, my only suggestion is light up some a bit more, as a few were hard to see.
30th Dec 2006, 11:42 PM
OMG!!! I'm so hating my computer and my game right now. Pleasantview has disappeared, and I have no way of retrieving the Richards family. I want to thank everyone who supported this story, and everyone who gave feedback. I have to re-install and start a new family. I'll be back with a new legacy for you all to enjoy... :(
Thanks so much.
31st Dec 2006, 12:08 AM
Aww noooo! That sucks man, I feel your pain, my game has given loads of ***** too. Best of luck!
31st Dec 2006, 12:23 AM
Thanks! :I think I'll be taking a break from the sims 2..since this happened (actually..I'm to lazy to re-download everything..since my system did not have enough space to back it up...lol.)
31st Dec 2006, 4:20 AM
oh no! dude, thats b*llsh*t!!! ok, sorry but i was really enjoying this legacy.. and i wanted to find out whats up witht the dana girl! im sorry for what happened... just dont forget to tell me when you have another legacy up, id love to read it.
31st Dec 2006, 7:42 PM
Thanks!!! I'm sort of taking a break right now [have a massive project to complete in a week.] so, I'll be back in a week or so.. Thanks!! :)
31st Dec 2006, 8:29 PM
(I hate massive projects with a burning passion) (and it seems after the new year, the teachers seem to realize they only have a while before the end of school so they pile massive projects on!)
1st Jan 2007, 7:42 PM
Yeah. They do! I had four months to complete this one..and I just had to procrastinate like a dummie..:( I'm mad at myself! lol
