Keeping Up With The Dunkels - A Fundie Legacy - Chapter 1



I recently decided to dive back into one of my old favourites, The Sims 2, and start up a new legacy challenge! For those of you unfamiliar with a legacy challenge, the rules can be found here: https://www.simslegacychallenge.com/legacy-challenge-rules/sims-2-legacy-challenge-rules-core/ I'll be more or less following the rules, but I'm not going to keep score. Too complicated.

To make things more interesting, I decided this would be a Fundie Legacy Challenge. I'm starting with one guy, and his goal is to find a woman and begin reproducing. And reproduce he shall. For the purposes of the fundie challenge, I've added a few extra rules:

-Sims must be modestly dressed

-Women can only work outside the home before having their first baby

-Absolutely no 'woohooing' before marriage! (For the purposes of the game they pretty much have to hug and kiss if you want them to fall in love and get married, but for storytelling purposes I'll be editing it to make it seem like they're not participating in such shameful wanton acts - TLC ain't got nothin' on me.)

-Sims must always 'try for baby' when woohooing. After having a baby, they must begin trying for the next one immediately.

-Children can only move out if they're getting married

-The eldest son is the heir, and stays on the legacy lot with his wife and children

Right now I'm planning to play the families of the second generation as well, but I'm guessing it's going to get pretty ridiculous pretty quick.

Anyway... on with the show!


Meet Wilbur Dunkel. He just moved into this shack on the edge of town and recently decided that the LORD is calling him to find a wife ASAP and start making babies. He's a family-orientated chap, and his goal is to create an entire town full of fundamentalists. Woohoo! (er, yes, there will be a lot of that going on.)


A strange man came and gave him a computer, which I promptly sold to buy him a floor and a couple of windows. You're welcome, Wilbur!


Some guests arrived to welcome him to the neighbourhood, including a matchmaker. Wilbur was beyond thrilled, because the women he'd met so far were very immodestly clothed and did not have particularly sweet countenances. He paid the matchmaker every last penny he had to find him the perfect young woman with a heart for the Lord...


Meet Cathy. "Well," thought Wilbur, "hopefully she'll be convicted to change her wardrobe. Those shorts are nothing short of scandalous, and the baseball cap is not pleasingly feminine at all. But at least she's not a goth or an old lady."


Success! Cathy and Wilbur hit it off! Uh oh... no side hugging going on here...


Wilbur tossed and turned all night, eaten up with regret for front hugging Cathy. He vowed to keep himself in line next time he saw her. He woke up bleary-eyed for work the next morning. Wilbur isn't really a 'job-type person', but he knows he has to pay the bills if he wants to convince Cathy to marry him and help him make two dozen babies.


It was a whirlwind courtship, and a few days later Wilbur and Cathy had a modest wedding in front of the chessboard. One old dude came to witness the ceremony, but he was inside the house on the toilet at the time.


Despite their scandalous front hugging, Wilbur and Cathy waited to consummate their marriage until approximately two minutes after the ceremony was complete (they had to wait for the old guy to get off the toilet and leave).


And here is Cathy's fundie makeover! I like that she's smiling here. She looks so cheerful and free. It won't last...


These are the grifting trees. They represent Wilbur and Cathy's grifting. Because Wilbur and Cathy are poor and planning on having a zillion children, they regularly hit up their fellow Christians for cash. It's not much, but enough to keep instant meals and cereal on the table.


Cathy was such an enthusiastic convert to fundamentalism that she got pregnant on her wedding night! (Side note: I know there's a mod that keeps sims in their regular clothes during pregnancy. Gotta find that one again.)


Wilbur and Cathy put an addition on their house in anticipation of their new arrival. Unfortunately neither one of them is particularly bright, so they ran out of money before they could furnish it. Also, they have no roof, so it's snowing inside.


NIKE! Cathy was scandalously dressed as she went into labour in the kitchen one night, but thankfully it was an unattended home birth, so no one was defrauded in the process.


"Hello, world!" Meet Adam Dunkel. He has brown hair and blue eyes and has no idea what kind of clusterfuck he's been born into.


Time to get to work on Blessing #2!


Welp, that didn't take long... yes, as the baby peacefully sleeps on the linoleum floor next to the beat up old refrigerator and the moldy bottle, his mother discovers she is pregnant with her second. #Blessed!


Meanwhile, Wilbur was fired from his job as a legal receptionist. His boss was waiting for a call from his wife and Wilbur, being a misogynistic tool, figured his boss didn't want to talk to his wife and stalled her on the phone. But it turned out his boss was waiting on crucial information about a case from his wife and was outraged that Wilbur interfered. Because of Wilbur's idiocy, the Dunkels now had no income, one baby, and one on the way. Things were really starting to deteriorate...


In the midst of all of this, Adam became a toddler. Neither of his parents really noticed. Wilbur had gotten a new job in politics (of course), and Cathy was in the midst of a nervous breakdown. You see, Cathy is a sim with the 'knowledge' aspiration, and while fundamentalism seemed nice and shiny from the outside, she seems to be discovering that it's a rotten turd from the inside.


Well, the good news is that Adam finally got a crib to sleep in. The bad news is everything else. There's still no floor in the bathroom or bedrooms. The kitchen is littered with dirty food and baby bottles. The toilet is overflowing. There are weeds growing underneath the shower. Wilbur is asleep. Tough day at the office.


In the midst of her regular grifting activities, while Wilbur was at work, Cathy went into labour for the second time! This time she was attended by a random dude and a dog.


It's a girl! Abigail Dunkel entered the world on a bright spring day and looks like she's already seen some shit.


That's all for now! Next time on Keeping Up With The Dunkels: More Babies! More drama! Will Wilbur manage to stay employed? Will Cathy avoid a complete nervous breakdown before Baby #3 enters the picture? Will they get a floor? A kitchen table (where else are they going to homeschool)? Stay tuned for all this, AND MORE! (Also next time: singsingsing will make the screenshots larger, figure out how to keep pregnant ladies in their modest clothes, and look around for a homeschooling mod.)

I love the Sims, and am jealous that you can still play 2. I like 3 well enough, but Sims 2 will always be special. 

That picture of the Sim baby asleep on the floor next to the stinking bottle was like a balm to my computer playing soul. :P

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
