Hello fellow Simmers!  This is my first legacy style game,  and certainly my first story, so, constructive criticism is desired and welcome.

Now: On With the Show!


 This is William  Driver.  He is first and foremost, Evil to the core.  Ever since his birth he's always been trying to undercut and hurt others, sometimes for his own gain, often for pleasure.  He is also exceedingly brilliant  (A Genius he might add),  having a head for logical thinking and planning (Outside of mathematics, which he failed in school) , this goes well with his way with people. Ever since birth he's been able to draw people to him and  get on well with them, at least in their eyes. In his eyes, they  were all his puppets, dancing for him.  He is also quite a snob, he sees himself as the pinnacle of perfection, and will only associate with those who have reasonable status.  Finally, he is obsessed with maintaining his health, having refused to eat meat since birth. His lifetime wish is to live in the lap of luxury, ensuring that his plans are well funded.

He has moved to Sunset Valley because of a rift with his do-gooder parents, and he hopes to one day have the whole town in his pocket.  In keeping with his plans to be incredibly wealthy, he has become a menial coffee  runner for a petty businessman, but not for long.


  After  getting his job,  he decides to go to the park to assert his dominance at the chess table, as well as to find a puppet. He engages a teenage girl, Holly Alto, in chess.  He beats her easily.


He strikes up a conversation  with Holly for a long time after, and finds out that they share vegetarianism. She seems useful (She is related to  the Altos, a very wealthy family),   so he plans to seduce her eventually, what wealthy man doesn't have a trophy wife much younger than him?


He picks a fight with Zelda Mae


And Wins.


After returning home,  He is found talking to himself in the mirror, plotting world domination.

Welcome to our Forum, Wiry. 

One thing I noticed in your story is that the spaces between your words are not consistent.  Sometimes you put two spaces instead of just one.  It will help tidy your paragraphs if you are consistent.  That's really the only critique I can offer.  It looks great, especially for a first attempt.  Good luck!  :)

I believe his traits are Evil, Genius, Charismatic, Snob, and Vegetarian, but I'm not Wiry so this is just what I could gather from the text.

Indeed  they are.  I probably should have listed them.

 The morning after his plotting session, he admires himself in the mirror, wondering how such a perfect man could come from such useless parents, and reads a book, in an attempt to optimize his coffee-running capability.  For such a menial job, he enjoys the opportunities it provides for mischief.  He especially enjoys watching his coworkers squirm when they find out that they were not using sugar, but salt.  He heads off to work.

After work, he receives a phone call to participate in a riddle contest at the bookstore, which he wins quite easily. He sets off for home and invites the CEO of the company, Gunther Goth, over for a while.


He and Gunther discuss a plethora of matters, until finally Gunther feels like William is his friend. Stupid Man.  Gunther leaves and William goes to bed. 


William goes to work on Friday, and receives a promotion to another, slightly less worthless position, Filing Assistant. It seems that his time wasted with Gunther was not really wasted at all, and he is pleased. He goes to the park to play chess, and ends up matched against some peasant.


William holds a party the next day, to which he invites his "Friends" from work, as well as Holly Alto, who he sees has now reached an eligible age.


He gives her flowers and continues to dance with her, plotting his romantic conquest.

I really like your writing style, Wiry -- I love how you really give us the perspective of the characters while staying in the third person. I also like William's evil persona. Keep the updates coming!

Here's a short update concluding my End of Day Simming


 William spends his Sunday morning at the park, playing chess. He notices the presence of Holly Alto, who must have known where he would be, because she immediately approached his chess table and began to play.


  After the chess game, Holly must go, and so hugs him goodbye. William is not willing to let her go so easily though.....


  He moves in for a kiss, and finds Holly receptive to his advances. He has her where he wants her, and very soon, her family's fortune will be his!


  Holly's receptiveness surprises William, who accelerates his plan accordingly. In the moments after their kiss, he proposes marriage. He doesn't need to wait and fall in love with her, she is merely a means to an end, and she unwittingly moves into checkmate.  She accepts!

  William calls off of work for the next day, and has a bachelor party the same night as his proposal (Really just a reason to torment others)

 
  He promptly ruins Thornton Wolf's tuxedo by spraying nectar on it, much to the dismay of Mr. Wolf.

 

  After cleaning up the mess those swine made in his home, he invites Holly over and they exchange vows and rings, as well as a kiss.


  After Holly goes to bed that night, he is found once again, masterminding his plans and congratulating himself on a job well done.

End of Day Update time. Not much happened, but I did notice that it seems like William is Aliiiive.  I don't have to prompt him to do all sorts of nasty things  8)


 Holly moved in, taking all of her parent's simoleons with her, a whopping 6,000. Not only has William secured the future of his perfect genes, he has also turned the Altos into paupers.  He is pleased.


 Celebrating his accomplishments, he spends the rest of the day at the park, where he spots his nemesis Zelda Mae.  He is sure to inform her of her status, taking lots of time to speak slowly and explain the definition of "nemesis" to the fool.


 Delicious.   She was foolish enough to attack him again, and he was forced to show her why he was to be feared.


 She will be feeling that for a while, if she ever stops feeling it, that is.


 William manipulates Holly into becoming an author, and she promptly starts work on a drama called "The Epic of William."
She is helpless, bending to his every whim.  He would have thought that the daughter of such a successful family would be at least a challenge, but she will do as the mother of his children, some of them at least.

I literally laughed out loud when I saw that last "The Epic Of William" part. I don't think I've ever seen Holly used in a legacy. I guess I'm kind of speechless, not really sure what to say.  ::)

  Holly Finishes "The Epic of William", and it nets her quite a chunk of change in royalties. William thinks it's merely mediocre, but it'll do to make the  foolish populace more enamored with him.

 
  William heads to the park, as usual, and plays chess with Cornelia Goth. If only more people were like her. Her unpleasant demeanor almost made William feel pity for the fact that she was soon to die. Almost.


  He still brutally crushes her in chess, much to her dismay.  Her disappointment makes William gleeful as he returns home.


  In order to exact revenge even more completely on Zelda Mae, he "asks"  (Practically orders) Holly to write a short, trashy novel featuring her, to ruin her reputation. 


 Her almost slavish devotion to her husband drives her to complete the novel in record time, and within a day, so many people have read her novel that Zelda has college students with low self esteem knocking at her door.  Splendid.


 William decides to reward her by buying her an easel, which she immediately takes a liking to.


 Finally, William manages to achieve some degree of power within the company, being promoted to a Department Head.  He almost immediately sets about making people wonder whether his last name, Driver, was really Slavedriver

  The day after his promotion (A Friday), Holly discovers that she's pregnant. William is absolutely elated that his genes shall persist.


 William goes to work on that day, and after receiving another promotion (those simple minded fools need a leader), he heads to the library to read a book to optimize his parenting techniques.


 Out of sheer desire to have a healthy child (And not out of love for her), William ensures that Holly shall not want for anything. He also sends her to the Day Spa to get the best package he can afford.  His child WILL be healthy.


 He allows Holly to spend her spare time painting, rather than stressing herself over writing.


 A few nights later, Holly can tell the baby is coming, and in a moment of calm that made William proud, she calmly made the bed then set about giving birth. While he faked the appropriate amount of joy.


 William is delighted at the amount of pain Holly seems to be feeling. The birth goes well though.


 Everyone welcome Eva!

Lol. William is my kind of Sim! He's so deliciously twisted. I especially loved the parts where he changed the sugar to salt and I cackled with glee at the picture of him owning Zelda. Fail.

Oh, this is going to be good 8)

 William has set himself up to be the primary caregiver for Eva, as Holly seems to be rather negligent, he has taken note of this, and she's on thin ice.


  Holly has become pregnant again, and so soon. He knows the children are his, as he hasn't left Holly alone since her first pregnancy began, but he doesn't know how she has become pregnant. (Really.  She just spontaneously became preggers  :o)


  Shortly after Holly realizes she's pregnant, little Eva ages up. William is pleased with how she has turned out so far, already showing his preference for being Evil.  She pulled her mother's hair constantly as an infant, and almost broke Holly's finger when Holly, rather than William held her.  Great.



Holly seems to have some pretty good genetics, despite her parents.

Eve is a cute toddler! (But of course, looks can be deceiving to owns true nature.  ;)) Holly does have good genetics, though Nick Alto is actually a fairly good looking man himself.

While Holly continues to neglect Eva (And him, for that matter), William is teaching Eva all that she needs to know, like how to talk.


 And Walk.


 Holly goes to paint, in the middle of cooking, leaving fate nothing but time, and opportunity to start a fire, thus endangering William's life, and Eva's. Although he is Evil, he reserves his shenanigans for his coworkers, poor unfortunate Sims that he meets, and soon:


  His wife, who accuses him of being an Evil monster.


 Amid the chaos, Eva ages up, alone and distraught, while......


 Her father explodes on Holly, ending their marriage for her stupidity. Pregnant or not, she made her last mistake under William's roof.


Holly discovers the joys of geometry, and blocks, while her father kicks her mother out of the house.  They had given her a choice, rather than going to court, they would allow Eva to choose the custody arrangement.  It was no contest, Eva chose never to see her mother again.
