Oh Emmett, you never cease to amuse. How many times has he died now? The most I've had with an Unlucky sim (so far) is twice.

Eden is a lovely child. I think I mentioned that before. I love her personality, and I really loved the fairy-tale spin in the chapter previous to this.

That bird is just gorgeous. I haven't seen one of those in my game before...wow!

He has died thrice.  Twice of the jelly bean, and once of the dishwasher repair.  I really like Eden.  She's even more fun as a teen, just wait!  I agree that she's lovely.

Lancelot is a Lilac Breasted Roller.  I looked it up because it looked so unreal in the game, the coloring.  It's the national bird of Botswana, apparently.  And it looks pretty similar to the digital version.  Very pretty.

Why Entropy? Is it your clever way of saying this is a disorderly chapter?

It was nice to see what 'really' happened, the other side of the story as it were. I wonder if Eden is planning to make herself a witch or someone else?

Yes, exactly.  It felt disjointed to me and like it covered quite a lot of time and random activities of the family.  I figured Rosetta's best scientific way of putting a label on it would be to call it entropy.  It was either that or Chaos Theory :)

Haha, poor Emmett! He does make me laugh. I've never tried playing an unlucky sim before, but now I want to! How did he get shocked freeing the genie?

Sweet, little Eden. I wonder if Freddie will come home wearing golden tassels?

Something happened to him in the catacombs during the last leg of the freeing process and he came out like that.  Poor guy.  I'm hoping Freddie will be home soon!  I had expected him while Eden was still a child, but I always underestimate how long the teen period is when they're away.

The way you depict Eden's childhood is totally unique. This is creative writing with a capital 'C'!
Eden probably wants to be a good witch and beat the evil green witch in a legendary duel... or something like that... maybe.  :D

The Most Incredible Thing
« Reply #184 on: January 13, 2013, 12:47:08 PM »
*Watcher's Note*

Eden's chapters will be the names of fairytales, rather than gardens and gardening things.  It seems to fit her.  I will put small notes on the fairytales that are more obscure at the bottoms of her chapters, just because I ended up reading some of them, and fairytales are awesome.


Some days, I think I've found the most amazing thing ever.  A Lancelot, brightly colored bird, or a bottle of secret witch potion, or even a vampire's eye gem.  Those days are good.  Then, on the last day of my childhood, I got to see what school was like.



That was pretty amazing!  I met a really fun girl named Gretchen or Gertrude or something with a G.  Then I came home, and Uncle Emmett had made this painting that looked like tiles!  That's pretty amazing too.  AND he said I could have it for my room!  Doubly amazing.



Later, was playing outside while Mom finished up her book report reading for teaching.  We were gonna play dominos after.



And then boom!  Before I knew what was happening, I aged up to a teen!  A party noisemaker just magically appeared in my hand.  That was incredible.



But then I became a teen, which made the noisemaker seem boring!



Grandma says I got the same bad hair she got when she became a teen, but I was blessed with "subtle golden highlights."  I like how that sounds!  I got to go to the mirror and dresser and make myself look brand new.  Picking out grown up clothes was the best thing I've ever gotten to do!  And Lancelot chirped and told me what he thought of them!

Everyday:



Formal:



Sleeping:



Swimming:



And cold outside:



I was kinda scared to grow up, you know.  I thought I'd be a brand new Eden.  But I feel just the same.  I'm not bored of my Lancelot or my dollhouse or my gumball machine.  I'm still just me!  And that's amazing too. 

Growing up is hard work, so I took a nap on the couch and dreamed that my prince finally came home to me.



Little did I know, my dream was coming true!



When I woke up and saw him there... all white with golden shoulder tassels, I had to ask him if he was real.  He said the strangest thing back.  "Reality is subjective," I think it was.  And then he said, "Hi, I'm Freddie."

I can't look at him without imagining him in silver armor, battling dragons and ogres and evil queens.



Later I found out he is the son that Ophelia and Emmett sent to school 100 years ago.  He's finally home and he's going to live with us!  I felt a little embarrassed that it wasn't just a dream and that I actually said those things to him.  He's sleeping in my old nursery right now until he can redecorate.  Sherlock really seems to like him.



I like him too.  He makes me dream of the things that I've always wished for.



I've also been dreaming about the other thing.  The secret thing.  A princess or good witch or sorceress in the stories never gets her powers until she's a teen.  Well, I'm a teen now, and I have to decide.  I dream of that stone I know is hiding in the colosseum.  It calls to me. 

It says, "Eden, this is what you're meant to be!"

But it's a big scary talking stone head.  Should I believe it or not!



Well, I don't know.  My dream about the white knight came true.  And don't laugh!  Everyone thinks Freddie is just a silly hippie, but he is gallant and good and strong.  He looks like a knight too.  He got to make clothes and new hair for himself just like I did, except he's a young adult and not just a stupid teen. 

Want to see them?  Well, I like looking at them, so you're going to anyway.

Everyday:



Formal:



Sleeping(!):



Swimming:



Cold days:



Isn't he something?  I had to go to high school in the mornings, but he'd always be up when I was having breakfast, and he'd tell me about his days.



About when he found Moonglow, in the rain, and ran with her through the meadows outside the citadel.



How she spoke to him and agreed to let him be her owner.  (Though she's never spoken to me!)



And how they ride together through the night, preparing to become the most famous man and horse in the history of Monte Vista.  And I ask you, am I just being a silly girl?  Or is this the real embodiment of a white knight ... a fairy tale prince?  And, my, wouldn't that just be the most incredible thing?






“The Most Incredible Thing" (Danish: Det Utroligste) is a literary fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875). The story is about a contest to find the most incredible thing and the wondrous consequences when the winner is chosen.

At this stage of the game I have learned to expect the unexpected in this tale. In other words, I'm not going to anticipate a Freddie/Eden romance until it actually happens. :P It's wonderful how you keep us on our toes with everything.

That being said, wow, is Eden an elegant teen! The internal debate rages and we are left to wonder...gardening or witchcraft?

Excellent update. :)

I love the last shot of Freddie riding through the mist--appropriately dreamy and imaginative! Eden's perspective makes for a fun read. I wonder if she'll stay imaginative as grows up into a young adult, or if reality will catch up with her?

So amazing! To borrow Eden's word. I like how she maintains her childlike wonder, it seems very natural, just like it seemed natural for Mona Lisa to be disgusted with her child self. And that last screenshot is amazing.

Thank you for adding the explanation of your title into an author's note. I didn't know, and I learned something new. which I'm really grateful for.
Freddie looks awesome. Here's hoping that he feels the same way about the little princess.  ;D

He turned out really well.  Nice combo of the parents.  And those pecs are nothing to sneeze at.

Well, what's life without a little complication? ;)

Thank you!  Eden did age up very well.  I think our custom genes from Coralie are beginning to diffuse at this stage, but she's still very attractive.  I hope you enjoy her decision(s)!

I have the biggest, goofiest grin on my face right now. Good update.

Ha!  Good.  That's high praise.

I love the last shot of Freddie riding through the mist--appropriately dreamy and imaginative! Eden's perspective makes for a fun read. I wonder if she'll stay imaginative as grows up into a young adult, or if reality will catch up with her?

Eden is a childish Sim.  I'm not sure reality will ever completely diffuse her take on the world.  I was really thrilled with that shot too.  Monte Vista is just gorgeous, even in the rain.

So amazing! To borrow Eden's word. I like how she maintains her childlike wonder, it seems very natural, just like it seemed natural for Mona Lisa to be disgusted with her child self. And that last screenshot is amazing.

You're right, Eden and Mona Lisa are such opposites as teens!  Which is funny, because their romantic aspirations are fairly similar.  Mona was so angsty, whereas Eden will just go play with her toys if she hasn't gotten her way with something.  I definitely need to have them interact a bit more and see how it plays out.

Thank you for adding the explanation of your title into an author's note. I didn't know, and I learned something new. which I'm really grateful for.

No problem!  Freddie definitely notices her.  The very first wish he rolled upon coming home was to group up with her and then to go to a movie.  So, here's hoping his interest lasts. 

I was wondering when Freddie was coming back...is he going to be a horseman :D?

Yes ma'am.  His LTW is to adopt a unicorn.  So very Freddie, isn't it?  Seemed appropriate to just put him with horses full time.  Plus, Moonglow was an excellent find.

It is awesome that she find her dream prince and it is Freddie! I hope her dreams don't get shattered.  Fantastic update! :)

Thanks, Louise.  I have a soft spot for Eden.  I'd never let anything shatter her.

Moonglow is part of our family now.  Freddie built her a small stable area in the front of the house with his own bare hands, like a real fairytale hero.  The two of them are already BFFs and have won two races together.



I really like Moonglow, and I think she likes me, but I'm too scared to try and ride her.  Instead, I feed her apples and talk to her about school, sometimes.



Lancelot would be my official BFF if he were big enough to be able to do that.  But he's just a tiny bird and probably doesn't think much.  I love him all the same.



I love Sherlock too.  But, I think he worries about me a lot.  He was in my room when I decided that I was going to use the potion.  But he's just a dog.  He can't really understand, can he?



I didn't do it right away.  It was time for school.  My first day of high school was only okay.  I made a friend named Eunice and got an opportunity to research the science facility.



When I was walking home after, I stopped off in the greenhouse.  I suddenly was overwhelmed with the urge to be around green things growing.  I picked some tomatoes and lettuce and put them in my knapsack.  (It's not stealing!  The greenhouse is a community garden!)



Well, it's like the universe had aligned and known I'd be picking produce that night!  When I got home, Granny Coralie had a big surprise for me.  She'd set up a corner of the greenhouse for me to get started on my garden!



It's just a tiny spot for now, but she says the greenhouse area is all mine to do with as I like.  I was so excited I could barely contain myself.



I asked Freddie how he spent his day.  He said he wanted to give Moonglow a break, so he'd gone to the spring festival.  I'm only a little jealous that he used the kissing booths.



Both of them.  Freddie believes in equal love.



I planted my tomatoes and lettuce and then I went upstairs for the night.  I thought about Eunice and Freddie and prom and homework and the garden and most of all the vial.  It was a lot in my brain, so I had to take a little break for a while.  I played boat races.



Then I went ahead and did it.  There's really no point in waiting, is there?



I didn't feel much different, but then suddenly I decided I really wanted an apple and something crazy happened.



I didn't eat that one.  Apples aren't supposed to be pink, silly.  But it did make me realize that I was different.  The next day, after school, I bought a wand from the elixir store, and practiced in my room, away from prying eyes.



I think maybe I have a talent for it!  Later, I transfigured some leftover tomatoes in the greenhouse (and some apples I'd conjured from thin air!)  Results were mixed.



I spend a lot of time in the greenhouse.  It's almost like the plants are my babies or my friends.  I talk to them as much as I can, but I also have to make time to talk to Moonglow and Lancelot.



I don't much talk to Sherlock, but I think that's because he knows what I did.  Maybe his name really is perfect for him.  He's a detective dog.



Anyway, I wanted to talk about something bad that happened.  Or I think it's bad.  People are sad about it, and I guess I'm pretty sad too.  Uncle Emmett told me my garden looked great and bragged about Freddie winning another race.  Then he kissed Aunt Ophelia and went to sleep, but he never got up again.



Of course, we all thought it was a false alarm.  But Grim didn't come.  Maybe he thought it was a false alarm too.  Either way, Emmett wasn't restored this time, and he's actually really gone now.  For good.



I think it's kind of nice that the last thing he ever did was roll a wish (at the same time as Ophelia) to kiss her, and then he did.  Of course it's sad that he's gone, but maybe he is relieved after dying so many times that this time he can just go, and later Ophelia will be with him.  She's super sad though.  Gran spends a lot of time trying to cheer her up.



When she feels better, I'll tell her that I think theirs was a beautiful love story.  I think about it in the garden pretty much all the time.  About the false proposal, the almost wedding, and Gran's sacrifice.  About Ophelia rescuing him from a lifetime of loneliness, and about his unlucky trait and such.

I mean, how many people have a story like that?



The day after he died was Love Day.  I imagine that was really hard for Aunt Ophelia.  But guess what!  Uncle Emmett had already bought her a sing-o-gram for the occasion.  She cried and laughed through the whole thing and I think it made her feel a little better.  Plus, now she has a wicked pink bunny toy to snuggle with at night.



As for me, I think I'm on the right track.  The day I used the potion, that big scary head moved!  It left the colosseum and relocated over to the exact spot where Freddie found Moonglow.  Now, that, to me, seems like a good sign.  I still dream about it.  It says one day I should come "commune." 

It doesn't scare me anymore.  It seems more like a friend now.



I won't commune today, though.  Right now, I'm busy.  I'm dreaming about growing up and telling Freddie I love him and getting married and having a baby.  I'm dreaming about the garden growing and growing until it overflows with color and life.  I'm dreaming about immortality.  And it's beautiful.

I was wondering if she might be Childish. That makes sense. Especially for someone that is obsessed with fairy tales! I like it, it fits her. I think her outlook on life is very beautiful.

It is so like Freddie to use both kissing booths. Hahaha, I love his character. So far, Eden is the character I identify most with in this story, and I think I would like Freddie too!

RIP Emmett. Glad you got your rest at last.
