The Amazing Hollander - A Legacy | GRAVEYARD PLEASE!
« on: May 13, 2014, 10:35:57 AM »

This is the legacy that begins with one Leslie Hollander, a sort of dramatic young lady who has decided to settle down in Riverview to become an astronaut. During the course of her life, she meets and marries her stalker husband Sherman, has two insane daughters and cons an old woman into moving in and taking care of her children without pay.

1.0. Speed Dating up to Eleven

 

Leslie: Hello, and welcome to this disaster which is called… my life. I’d better start from the beginning and tell you about my harrowing childhood, my dark and troubled past and the rainy and cold trip I took from my birthplace to my new life in Riverview…
Louise: Actually, if you could just skip that, I’d appreciate it.
Leslie: Huh? Who’s there? Are you… The Watcher?
Louise: I prefer Louise, actually. I’ve tried being sort of like a deity before and I’m just telling you: never ends well. I remember the last time, when I ran out of avocados and the crickets were absolutely mental because I promised them this loaf of bread but-
Leslie: …
Louise: Yeah, never mind. It was a long Tuesday. But I’m Louise, and I’ll be the weird, semi-coherent voice doing snarky commentary in your head. Now, why don’t you tell us why you’re here in Riverview. Why did you leave your home?

 

Leslie: Actually, uh… it’s not important. I’m off to find a job.
Louise: Wait, but before you were all ready to tell us about your dark and troubled past and now…?
Leslie: Yes, well, that’s different. You’re asking me to talk about the eh… the… [mumblemumble]
Louise: What was that?
Leslie: The eh… [mumblemumblemumble]
Louise: The ‘Flowerpot Incident’? What’s that?
Leslie: NOTHING. Nothing. Why don’t I tell you all about myself while I go get a job with the military.

 

Louise: Military, eh?
Leslie: Yes, quite. I’m going to be an astronaut, I’ll have you know.
Louise: You want them to send you into space? What could possibly go wrong…
Leslie: Excuse me! If you will, I’ll just go on. Well, about me… my name is Leslie Hollander, I’ve just moved here for… unspecified reasons and I’ve had a hard, gruelling life up until now. I’m an orphan and I grew up with heartless relatives and with hardly a penny to my name, I set out all on my lonesome to find my fortune in this cold, lonely place without friends or loved ones, and-
Louise: Oh brother… As you might be able to tell, Leslie is a wee bit Dramatic. She’s also a Schmoozer, Excitable, Handy, and Athletic. She wants to be an astronaut, though I question the sense of anyone who’s willing to send her into space.
Leslie: Rude! I was in the middle of telling you about myself!
Louise: *Rolls eyes* Go on.

 

Leslie: No, now you’ve put me off. I’ll just go join the military and become a fabulous astronaut. You’re just jealous.
Louise: … I’ve got nothing.
*A little while later*
Leslie: There, done and done. I’m an astronaut now.
Louise: You most certainly are not.
Leslie: Very well, I’m a Latrine Cleaner, but I’m very close to reaching the top, I’ll have you know! And now I’m off to exercise so that I can become a master at my job.
Louise: Good luck with that.

 

Louise: Ah, nice, the gym, now you just need to… Hey, are those floaty hearts of attraction I see there?
Leslie: Oh eh… Yes, yes they are. I seem to be wildly attracted to my boss, Sherman Bagley. Who’s here. And attractive. To me.
Louise: Ooooh, you go for it, girl.

 

Louise: He’s not so bad after a make-over… Even if… he’s sort of… staring into my soul. I think he’s trying to pull off the smoulder. Anyway eh… go for it. Talk to him!
Leslie: Ah, well, why not…

 

Leslie: Hello, boss, and what absolutely ravishing weather today. Such a day to be poor and alone in the world...
Louise: Where did that come from?
Leslie: I’m trying to gain his sympathy by telling him of my dark and troubled past.
Louise: Yeah, because that’s gonna wo-
Sherman: I love you so much.
Louise: Huh, well I’ll be…
Leslie: All right – time for plan B!

 

Leslie: *Fakes fainting*
Louise: … What.
Sherman: Do all women do this?
Louise: No, Sherman. No, they don’t.
Leslie: *Whispering* Shush, he’s supposed to carry me home and nurse me back to health!
Louise: …
Leslie: I’m not feeling very nursed back to health, why… He left?!

 

Leslie: Fine! We’ll go for plan B!
Louise: I thought you fainting was plan B?
Leslie: Hey, Sherman Forest, let’s have a chat, shall we?
Sherman: My name isn’t Forest. It’s Bagley, actually.
Leslie: Sure, sure, now, flirt with me!
Louise: Leslie, did you try to make a punny nickname for him? That was a horrible pun, you know that?

 

Leslie: I can’t hear you over the sound of how hard I’m flirting with Sherman Forest.
Sherman: She’s flirting with me. Okay, becoolbecoolbecool… Just… flirt with her.

 

Sherman: Um, so, what’s a lovely place like this doing in a girl like you?
Leslie: Teehee…!
Sherman: And um, you’re the gorgeousest girl ever.
Louise: I think he’s trying to eradicate grammar.
Leslie: Shush, he’s talking about me, so grammar is irrelevant.
Louise: Well, I guess it’s good that you’re getting along, seeing as this is a legacy and-

 

Louise: Wow, okay. Gives a new meaning to the term ‘speed dating’.
Leslie: I think we ought to live happily ever after!
Louise: After a grand total of five lines spoken to each other… of which about half weren’t even slightly coherent? Seems legit to me.
Leslie: Hush, you don’t know true love and how we fight to stay together despite societal pressure and a job that threatens to tear us apart…
Louise: … right.
Leslie: He’s my boyfriend now and you can’t stop our love!

 

Sherman: So. Lovely.
Louise: You okay, Sherman? You look… well, insane. Hey, Leslie, maybe you should just talk to the poor guy to make sure he isn’t-

 

Leslie: No time! Gotta work out!
Louise: Ah, okay then. Well, I guess we’ll just leave you here for…
Sherman: Oh my god.

 

Louise: Sherman what are you…?

 

Sherman: I love.

 

Sherman: Her.

 

Sherman: So much.
Louise: Oh dear…



Author's note: Well, here we go. This was really fun writing. Looking forward to doing some more, so I hope y'all enjoy it :)

1.1. Leslie’s Happy Place

 

Louise: So, last time, Leslie got a job and immediately fell in love with her boss after a grand total of ten minutes spent together. Later he got a different job and thus wasn’t her boss anymore. Now, today Leslie is going to- um, Leslie? Where are you?

 

Leslie: Right here.
Louise: Oh you’re… having breakfast… on your toilet.
Leslie: Well, somebody moved me into an enormous lot so that I would hardly have any cash left to furnish my home with.
Louise: Them’s the rules.
Leslie: Exactly.

 

Louise: I couldn’t help but notice that you’re remarkably calm about this.
Leslie: Oh, I’m in my happy place. The grave misfortune that I find myself in has done nothing to dampen my spirits, for though I am miserable and lonely and cold, I shall prevail and build myself up from the ground, I shall rise from the ashes like a phoenix and become the most famous astronaut of our time. You’ll see.
Louise: Never mind… So, seeing as you’re in your happy place (which is your toilet, I suppose) why don’t you tell us what’s up with that Flowerpot Incident?

 

Leslie: No time, off for work!
Louise: … We will know one day, you know.
Leslie: Can’t hear you, off to become a fabulous astronaut.

 

*Later that day*
Louise: Aha, off from work! How did it go?
Leslie: Fantastic! I was promised that I’ll become an astronaut in no time if I only keep up my fabulous work. But now, don’t you think we have more important things to do?
Louise: We sure do – go for it, girl.

 

Leslie: Voilà!
Louise: Woah, Leslie, are you going to have tea with the queen?
Leslie: No, I’ve invited Sherman Forest over. He’s going to finally see that I was beautiful all along and that through grave misfortune I came to live in this squalid situation but he will soon fall madly in love with me and whisk me away to his rich mansion.
Louise: That sentiment is so flawed, I don’t even know where to begin. First, I’m pretty sure he’s already in love with you; second, you can’t move into another house. You have to live here.
Leslie: Quiet! I’m waiting for my destiny!

 

Louise: Your destiny is a viral video?
Leslie: Oh god, that’s hilarious. Monkeys can do that?!
Louise: Um, Leslie, weren’t you waiting for your destiny or something?
Leslie: Huh, oh, yeah, but he hasn’t come yet so I thought I’d watch this vid- OH MAN, a llama! It got better!
Louise: You should call him again.
Leslie: Oh, um, okay. Sure.

 

Louise: Ah, finally, here he is! He… wait, Leslie, why are you in your nighties?
Leslie: *Grumble grumble* I got impatient, okay. Hey, Sherman Forest, over here!

 

Sherman: I-I ran here as fast as I could.
Leslie: That would explain why you’re so smelly. Sooo, eh… Hey, why did I want him here in the first place?
Louise: Ask him to move in with you!
Leslie: Huh… I think maybe I should ask him to move in with me! Wait, why would I do that?
Louise: Because you’re so in love. Also, I’m trying to keep you apart.
Leslie: Woe is me! My love and I is crossed by the stars and even a vicious Watcher is tryng to tear us apart. Sherman! Move in with me and we’ll fight for our love!
Sherman: I love you with the hot intensity of a thousand suns.

 

Louise: True love prevails! And now you have enough money to get a proper house.
Leslie: I think ‘proper’ is a matter of interpretation. That is the most sorry excuse for a house I’ve ever seen.
Louise: *Grumble grumble* I never said I was an architect.
Leslie: No, that I can see…

 

Louise: Hush! The bed is good enough for you, isn’t it?
Leslie: *Snore* Mmmm…

 

Louise: And it turns out Sherman is Neat! He’s pretty good to have around because he just sort of cleans everything.
Sherman: A clean house for my clean princess…
Louise: He’s also still sort of creepy.

 

Louise: So, I guess you’re already falling into a routine. Leslie working out and Sherman… eh…

 

Sherman: Look at that. Look at the slender, magnificent body of my one true love.
Louise: Sherman is here. Yes, he is. Now… don’t you think that you crazy kids should start thinking about… well, crazy kids?

 

Leslie: No time, working out!
Louise: But it’s a legacy! That whole point of a legacy is for you to have… well, a legacy. Meaning kids. To make a legacy that will last.
Leslie: Well, I suppose that having kids would make this existence of ours harder and lead to many years of hard work and self-sacrifice to feed my loving family…
Louise: So you don’t want-

 

Leslie: Come here, Sherman Forest!

 

Sherman: She kissed me. Becoolbecoolbecool…
Louise: Sweetie, she’s your girlfriend.
Sherman: I love her so much.
Louise: Well then… get going, you two!

 

Leslie: Baby time!

Thank you very much ^_^ I think she has a great face - pretty unique to look at. Sherman is such a weird dude. Ha, ha, sort of playing him a bit creepy even though he's actually a pretty handsome guy. He just has such weird looks on his face sometimes!

Thank you for that - I'm glad you like it ^_^
Oh gosh, yes, I always forget to note things like that. I can tell you now that Sherman is going for a LTW of Dynamic DNA Profiler (I think that's the name of it?) so StoryProgression kicked him off soldiering and made him an aspiring police officer. The traits I'll make sure to note next time I do an update because I don't remember right now :P (And I'm nowhere near my computer!)

Anyway, thank you both for taking the time to comment ^_^

1.2. What the Pregnancy Book Said



Louise: In the last chapter, Leslie got pregnant.
Leslie: Actually, I didn’t.
Louise: But-
Leslie: Turns out, my loving husband and I are unable to conceive which is making us both miserable, but we are determined to pull through in any case, and with the support of our loving families and each other we shall prevail. Even though our children will be adopted-
Louise: Oh quiet, you’re pregnant. I know.
Leslie: I assure you, I’m not. See, I went to work and everything.

 

Louise: Well, never mind then, I have a surprise for you: I’ve redecorated your house a bit! Doesn’t it look swell? I also have a Very Special Gift for you.

 

Leslie: A radio? And why is it blaring kids’ music?
Louise: Just entertainment.
Leslie: But I don’t like-
Louise: I’m just being nice to you, now go for a jog!

 

Leslie: In the hail?
Louise: You wanted to go for a jog.
Leslie: But not in this weather…
Louise: Shush, I’ll show off the interior of your house now.

 

Louise: Sure, there’s just one room but it’s home.
Leslie: Actually, I have to applaud you.
Louise: Aaaw, really? *smiley face*

 

Leslie: Yes, you somehow managed to make our bathroom smaller than it was before.
Louise: *sad face* I work with what I ha-
Leslie: Wait eh… sp-speaking o-of the bathroom…

 

Louise: Ha, I guess I was right! *smug*
Leslie: Bluuurgh… Okay, okay.
Louise: Better change into some maternity wear and then I have another surprise for you!

 

Leslie: Right, so I’m ready. Where’s my surprise.
Louise: I redecorated!
Leslie: …
Louise: …
Leslie: … Again?

 

Louise: Yeah, look, it’s like super lovely now.
Leslie: Well, that’s debatable…
Louise: Quiet! The house is fantabulous.

 

 

Louise: Just look at that fabulous interior.
Leslie: Um… yes.
Louise: Hey! At least-

 

Louise: Oh, you went to the library to read a pregnancy book?
Leslie: I sure did. It says here to eat weird things and cry for no reason. I’m sure I can do that. I think I’ll go home and try that out.

 

Leslie: *sob sob* Oh god, the crib I *sniffles* It’s so beautiful despite how poor in quality it is. This is the bed where I will lay down my young child and I shall love him despite my poverty and the harsh conditions I shall raise him under..
Louise: You think it’ll be a boy?
Leslie: A single, beautiful baby boy.
Louise: We’ll just have to see then. Anyway, I haven’t seen anything of Sherman this time around. Where is he?



Louise: Ah, there he is. You’re reading a pregnancy book, too?
Sherman: *dreamy sigh* Yes, I have to be ready for when Leslie’s baby comes.
Louise: I guess Sherman still isn’t used to the fact that it’s his baby, too.

 

Sherman: “When the baby comes, make sure to stand around screaming and being as utterly useless as possible.”
Louise: That’s what the pregnancy books say? That… actually explains a lot about how Sims deal with birth.
Sherman: “Afterwards, you can elect to do absolutely nothing – possibly just go play chess or something. After you’ve done your screaming, your job is done.”
Louise: A lot… Hey, wait, I hear screams!

 

Leslie: Ngaaarh! Where is Sherman Forest?! He’s supposed to be here screaming and being useless!
Louise: You two read the same pregnancy book, didn’t you?
Leslie: Get Shermaaaaan!

 

Louise: Right, right, there he is.
Sherman: *screams and is useless*
Leslie: Thank goodness! Everything will be okay – he’s doing exactly what the pregnancy book said he needed to do! Now, take me to the hospital!

 

Sherman: Okay, hurry and get in the fancy car that I had in my pocket!
Leslie: …
Sherman: We need to hurry! BABY!
Leslie: … You’ve had a fancy, expensive car in your pocket all this time?!
Sherman: BABY!

 

Leslie: I swear, Sherman, you are in deep trouble when we get home. You kept a fancy car in your pocket and you didn’t even tell me. We could have sold it to get more money...
Sherman: BABY!
Leslie: When I’m done with you you’d wish creepy elf hat guy there had gotten to you first.

 

Elf hat guy: Leave me out of this.
Louise: Sorry, they’re a bit odd. So, you reading anything good?
Elf hat guy: …
Louise: While they’re in the hospital you’re all the company I have.
Elf hat guy: I’m reading a book on the massive armadillo conspiracy to enslave all of humanity.
Louise: You make me miss Leslie the Drama Queen and the guy who stalks his own girlfriend. Oh thank goodness, here they are again.

 

Louise: Oh, a little girl. She’s a Heavy Sleeper and Loves the Cold. Let’s call her Rachyl.
Leslie: Um, let’s not.
Louise: Sorry, love, I’m going to use a random name generator to pick names for your kids. It’ll be interesting.

 

Louise: Oh, another girl – she’s Brave and Loves the Cold as well. Good. This one will be called Kristy.
Sherman: I’m carrying Leslie’s baby *cannot contain squeals of joy*

 

Louise: And so, they all head home to begin their new life as a family…
Leslie: Does that mean we can keep the fancy, expensive car?
Louise: No.
Leslie: So we can sell it?
Louise: NO. Go home! Be happy family!



Author's note: I promised last time I'd note what Sherman's traits are: Coward, Friendly, Good, Neat, and Lucky. His Lifetime Wish is to become a Dynamic DNA Profiler. Sorry this update was so long in the making. I went to see my parents on occasion of my grandparents' wedding anniversary. Next week I'm going away, too, to Naples, but I'll try and write another update before that.

So loving this!  The pregnancy book makes all sorts of sense!  Leslie's delusional world and Sherman's wife-stalking is just glorious.  I am quite excited to see how the girls turn out.

It was those blasted books! I knew our sims had to be getting their dodgy info from somewhere but I hadn't even considered the pregnancy books! *facepalm*

Indeed, it didn't even occur to me before now! You know, I'm guessing, since all the pregnancy books have the same cover, it's some clever author who's written the same book over and over and just published it with different titles. It's pretty clever in a ridiculously dumb way.

1.3. Go with the Flo

 

Louise: After Leslie got over Sherman’s hidden luxury car and I deleted it using some cheats, the two started their lives as parents. Not going to lie, they’re surprisingly good at it.
Sherman: Leslie’s baby likes the bottle.
Louise: … Even if Sherman still hasn’t quite grasped that they’re his babies, too.

 

Leslie: Hey, what about me? Am I not a fabulous mother?
Louise: You’re not so bad, actually. I mean you’re here for them, takes care of them and you and your husband share the-

 

Leslie: No time, going to town.
Louise: … So much for the loving mother, eh? So, what are you up to in town?
Leslie: I’m going to the Summer Festival of course.
Louise: And, pray tell, what are you doing there?

 

Leslie: Let’s do this, losers!
Louise: Oh, brother… I wonder how Sherman is dealing with Leslie going away.

 

Sherman: Lesliewillbebacksoon… Lesliewillbebacksoon…
Louise: All things considered, it could be worse. Right, let’s see how Leslie handles her eating contest.

 

Leslie: *Munch munch munch*
Louise: So, how’s it going?
Leslie: *Munch munch munch slubber*
Louise: Right, okay… Let’s uh… check back on Sherman.

 

Sherman: It’s okay that Leslie isn’t here. I’m doing fine. I have Leslie’s baby.
Louise: Yeah, and your sweater’s sort of trying to eat the baby… Right, okay, this isn’t so exciting. Maybe we’ll just stick with Leslie for a while. Not that that’s any better…

 

Big, Russian guy: Ha, who is loser now, drama woman?
Leslie: *Munch munch, munch…*
Louise: You know, if you didn’t know better, you might actually be tempted to think Leslie’s really into Norwegian artists.
Leslie: *Burp* Yeah, very funny…

 

Leslie: *gag* W-whose brilliant idea w-was this eating contest?
Louise: Don’t look at me – free will is turned on. But hey, did you have a reason for coming here other than making yourself sick?
Leslie: Oh that’s right…

 

Leslie: Hello there, stranger whom I have never met. Would you like me to tell you about my miserable life?
Flo: You’re really weird, aren’t you?
Louise: Oh, Flo, you have no idea…
Leslie: Shush, I’m making friends!

 

Louise: Meanwhile, back home with Sherman…
Sherman: Rejoice, Leslie’s baby! For you are clean now!
 
 

Sherman: Even if your mother is gone forever… Oh Leslie, why did you go away forever and ever?
Louise: Either Leslie’s Dramatic trait is rubbing off on Sherman or he’s so dangerously co-dependent that he has actually become delusional. Let’s hope Leslie’s home soon…

 

Leslie: … for I am dirt poor and were it not for the love of my life and our darling children, I wouldn’t have done this. Maybe I would have gone away to Lucky Palms to live a life as a showgirl.
Flo: You have some issues, hon.
Leslie: Yes, my desperate poverty means I cannot hire a babysitter! Say, let us go home to my place and you can consider moving in and taking care of my childr- I mean, coming over to see us once in a while.

 

Louise: Huh, Flo actually agreed to go with you home. How quaint.
Leslie: Yes, look at this, Flo, this is a viral video. You need to stay here and take care of my babies.
Flo: Well, we’re not friends yet so I don’t really know…
Louise: Wait, isn’t Flo married? Are you really going to get her away from-

 

Leslie: I’m not, Sherman Forest will do it. See you in the morning, guys!
Sherman: Hello stranger, do you like Leslie?
Flo: I guess I do. In spite of everything…
Sherman: We’ll be best friends.

 

Sherman: You see, Leslie is beautiful and talented and she’s nice enough to say that you can stay here if you like.
Flo: I don’t know…
Louise: And so, Sherman follows Flo around the house for a couple of hours, reminding her that Leslie is truly amazing.

 

Louise: What really does it, though, isn’t anything Sherman says…
Flo: If I move in… I can use the rocking chair?
Louise: You’d… move away from your family because of a rocking chair?
Flo: That means I can use it?
Louise: Sure, but-

 

Flo: I’d love to move in!
Sherman: You can be the second member of my Leslie fan club.
Louise: Well, in that case – welcome to the household Flo. (Who’d want to live with a loving husband and family anyway?)



Author's note: So, seeing as nothing much happened in this chapter and I'm going away for a while, another one will be up right away. It's also because I want you guys to see the girls age up. They're glorious. Coming up in a minute...

1.4. Glorious Toddlers



Louise: Welcome back to the Hollander residence, where we once again find the melodramatic matriarch eating outside on a chair.
Leslie: We don’t have a proper dining table.
Louise: No, you don’t. Sorry about that.

 

Leslie: What we do have, though, is a clogged toilet. And it is my sworn duty to unclog this toilet if it’s the last thing I ever do!
Louise: Wow, Leslie, you’re being super serious.

 

*Eye of the Tiger playing in the background*

 

Louise: Wow, so you’ve unclogged the toilet and now you’re exercising. Anything else you’re planning to do today?
Leslie: Nope. Just training.
Louise: How about marrying Sherman or something? I mean, if you feel like it…
Leslie: No time, working out!
Louise: *deep sigh* Must we do this every time there’s something important for you to do?
Leslie: …
Louise: *dramatic voice* I see, you don’t want to marry in this squalid abode, amidst dirty dishes; you don't wish to sacrifice your dream of a big, white wedding only to marry the man you love in these humble-

 

Leslie: Sherman Forest! Marry me!!!
Louise: Where did you even get that wedding dress??
Sherman: Leslie is giving me a shiny thing *squeals*

 

Leslie: Now, I’m giving you this shiny ring and then you’ll promise to love me forever and ever, and even when we grow old and grey our love will survive. So… I promise to love and honour you and things, and I do. Do you do?

 

Sherman: Bleh beh?
Leslie: Good enough for me! We’re married!
Louise: Aw, it’s almost kind of cute in a… seriously dysfunctional way.

 

Leslie: Well, back to doing chores!
Louise: Leslie’s so dedicated to the plumbing that she doesn’t even take off her wedding dress. Now that’s just… odd.

 

Louise: Meanwhile, when Flo isn’t practically living in the rocking chair…

 

Louise: … or rocking out in her silky jim-jams…

 

Louise: … she helps tend to the babies. She even quit her job to do it.
Flo: Yeah, gives me more time to rock out. In the rocking chair.

 

Louise: And at last, the day we’ve all been waiting for comes along. The twins have their very first birthday.
Sherman: It is my duty and my honour to carry Leslie’s baby to the cake.

 

Louise: And after some tooting and rattling and some sparkles…

 

Louise: … Rachyl is a toddler. With a seriously impressive mane for her age.

 

Louise: She has a seriously freaky face. Look me in the eye and tell me that’s not the face of a budding psychopath – I dare you.
Rachyl: You will all be my slaves someday.

 

Louise: And as is the tradition for Sims kids, they receive a freaky doll in the post that Rachyl immediately starts pulling apart.

 

Louise: Next up, it’s Kristy’s birthday. As the responsible mother that Leslie is, she blows out the candles and puts her babies on the floor.
Leslie: Don’t question my parenting. The pregnancy book said this is how you do it.
Louise: Ah, yes, of course, the pregnancy book. What else.

 

Louise: And Kristy grows up and- Oh. My. Gosh. LOOK. Look at that face. Look at the dorky expression on her face! The awkward wave! She is absolutely perfect.

 

Louise: I love these kids. So much.



Author's note: So, here we are. Double update because I'm leaving again. I'm going to Naples for a week from tomorrow.
Seriously though, I love the girls so much. Especially Kristy's dorky face... and Rachyl's psycho face. They're a delight.

It's going to be hard to remember their names, instead of just thinking of them as "Leslie's babies." I love Sherman's expression in the picture where he's rocking with one of them; he really does look like he's panicked over whether Leslie will come home. Hilarious wedding! And oh gosh, I thought Rachyl was really cute until you just had to have her planning to enslave everyone. Haha! Cute instantly turned to incredibly creepy. Guess that means she takes after her dad.  ;)

Team Rachyl.  Already on board.  Love that budding young psychopath.  Of course, with them both being so lovely (and terrifying) how could anyone not love Leslie's babies?
