What are you thankful for?
Agnes sat back in the rocking chair in her living room feeling very satisfied. She had built her life up and was now relishing her five beautiful children on Spooky Day. The Feast Party she threw was winding down, now was a time to be thankful and reflect upon the time before this, the time before she was Mrs. Reaper and mother to her five, beautiful children.

She had been alone in her house when I had sent her to the Elixir Store on that bright, Sunday morning. She tore apart the store and bought everything out until she finally had what she wanted: the Witch's Brew. Now she just had to level her magic.

That involved a lot of this.

And this.

With some occasional this.

Ok, maybe not so occasional that, but I felt it would put a break in the monotony.
Finally, it ended with this.

Agnes had worked so hard for this moment, she was very happy to see that he was not only appreciative, but that he felt very strongly for her.

Though I suppose a love charm can't hurt. As soon as plans were arranged and Tragic was moved in there was still work to be done and Agnes worried her that her life that seemed to have just begun was now half over.
Tragic took her to City Hall the next morning, "The Watcher has requested something of me, I'll meet you at the Salon shortly." He said softly before they broke apart and went their separate ways.

Agnes made a quick stop somewhere else before heading to the Salon. They were going to change themselves for the better.
When Tragic made it into the Salon, he barely got a word out before Agnes shoved an Elixir in his hand and smashed a similar one at her feet. Her face was serious. He decided not to question her.

...and he was young once again. They proceeded with their makeovers as Agnes started to plan a wedding out loud when Tragic broke the news to her.
"I'm not a recognized Citizen here, dear."
She clammed up.
"The option to marry here just isn't an option."
Silence.
"Please say something."
"So, what are we supposed to do?" She finally said.
"The Watcher gave me an idea that she claimed to have read somewhere. It won't be a big wedding though."
Agnes was quiet for a moment, thinking of her sister. "I'm in."
So to China they went, and before they had taken two steps into their camp, Tragic got down on one knee.

And they were married on the spot.

Chimes were heard throughout the basecamp that night, and a happy couple enjoyed their new identities.

They would return home as Mr. and Mrs. Reaper.


*I felt bad to have left a wall of text, so I decided to go back, create a new file and follow my exact steps to the T and take pictures this time. Unfortunately trying to redo her pregnancies to the T will be near impossible - as a lot of the children she had stemmed on luck. I'll make sure they get plenty of face time as they are now, as I would like to do heir polls on another site to help me decide on which child to choose from (they currently have 5 but I'm debating about having one more... we'll see). Comments and ideas are always welcome.

Their children are absolutely stunning. Agnes is the founder though, she did all the hard work and pulled her husband from the grave, not to mention she's single-handedly the best Sim-Mother I've seen in ages on this game.

**To Note, this is where my pictures are a little sparse, so please don't mind the extra text to fill in for it.

Children of the Reapers
Mr. and Mrs. Reaper returned home from their short but busy trip to China. Agnes had taken to buying and upgrading properties and buildings, but there was one lot in particular that I was unsure why she bought until she explained her expectations to me. She had just previously announced her pregnancy.
"Do me a favor?"
Does this have something to do with that empty lot?
"Absolutely. I just can't stand my house anymore. It's small and the layout is just not fit for my new goals."
When did you get goals that I didn't know about?
"This is a Legacy, correct? Not a Dynasty? There can be multiple options for heir, correct?"
Yes, I suppose that's a way you could view it. How many candidates do you want to have, exactly?
"Oh, at least 5."
FIVE?! Does Tragic know anything about this?
"Oh stop having a cow. He's in complete agreement with me. Well, except on what gender he wants. I want a little girl and he wants a little boy."
Alright, I'm leaving it to chance then. Whoever doesn't get it will lose their 5k wish.
"Not necessary. We're both right."
...What are you plotting?
"Getting a running start at this 'have-five-children' bit?"
I'm in. Now what about this empty lot...

So, out in the mists, high up in the mountains, the Reapers built a new home more fit for their needs.

Agnes groaned, "Looks like the Ice Cream man doesn't care if you live ten-zillion miles out of town..."

Unfortunately, I did not catch much of Agnes' pregnancy but I assure you that she was supremely taken care of. Spa trips, lounging at home, enjoying the small garden she had just for her alchemy, and lots of time with her husband. It wasn't until the night they moved into their brand new home that the Reaper's two little bundles of joy entered the house. As I hate infant stage, I use a birthday cake on them as soon as the next day dawns.
And so, Agnes brought into the world Cain and Aurora.


Both were absolutely adorable, and anomalies to genetics. Cain, who became Virtuoso and Friendly, had his father's eye shape and his mother's eye color. His green-brown hair (was adjusted to red-brown as I can't stand green-brown townie hair) was baffling to me.
Aurora gained the traits Loner and Genius, she was very much her mother's daughter - almost a clone, except for her beautiful, baffling orange eyes.

She also has a knack for getting any person to melt, including the Reaper's guard-dog Bear.
Do I sense a the Dog-Person trait in her future? Yes. Yes I do.
I am now going to go ahead a spam you, the readers, with Cain and Aurora toddler extra photos. I'm not sorry.


By the time they were heading for their cakes to become children, Agnes had been very pregnant with the next addition to the household. Cain and Aurora aged up:

Cain developed the Clumsy trait while Aurora became a - you guessed it - Dog-Person.
Unfortunately, my pictures ran thin here as well, as I only have one picture of child Cain and Aurora:

Agnes had been admiring her children as she brought into the world two more beautiful Reapers, Isolde and Isabel.
At this point, you're probably feeling that I'm moving very fast, but when you live with the Reapers I can assure you, life moves at 90 miles per hour. The twin girls were aged up and both discovered simultaneously that they took after their mom in more ways than one:



Isolde is a red-head (again, where did that come from?) who is very much a copy of her mother with her mother's eyes to boot! She has the traits Eccentric and Heavy Sleeper. Isabel is much girlier, however she is almost a clone of her father! She's incredibly adorable with her puppy eyes and her pouting lips. She gained the traits Loves the Outdoors and Loves the Heat. I hate to break it to her though, but she was a child born in the early Fall season, it will be a while before she will feel the heat on her skin.
A lot of this time the children spent getting to know each other and they were all best friends by the time it came for cakes:
And what do a lot of cakes mean?
"A lot of broken dishwasher?"

"Why am I the one fixing this anyways? My wife is magical!"
You were the one with the points in handiness.
"Not by my own doing! You're the one who told me to read the book while Agnes was in labor!"
Your point?
Agnes chuckled, "Oh, don't blame the Watcher, you're about as helpful when I'm in labor as someone screaming and jumping up and down."
"I thought that was protocol?"
"Ugh, men."
Tragic looked confused, "what?"   
And that's why you learned handiness instead. Moving on now... what many cakes REALLY does is create many GORGEOUS Sims.
"They take after their mother..."
"Oh you..."
(Censored - there's no need for you to see what's going on between those two right now, just a lot of kissy faces.)
Nice save there, Tragic.
"I do try."
So Cain and Aurora became teens with "raging" hormones, Isolde and Isabel became two beautiful children in matching clothes (which I realized shortly after was a bad idea, as I mistook them multiple times) and Agnes...
had...
another baby?

"That's right, her name is Raven! Hello cutie!"

Anyways, here is Cain, who gained the Proper trait, which has been decided to be the family trait that everyone will have.
And Aurora, who also gained the Proper Trait. I'm going to just go ahead and say that all teen birthdays will lead to the Proper trait, so that way I don't feel like I'm repeating myself too much.

She also had a rebellious streak where she lowlighted her hair and dyed the tips red. She is quite stunning.
Isolde was next, being the oldest of the second pair of twins. She added Easily Impressed to her Eccentric and Heavy Sleeper personality.

Last but not least of these birthdays is Isabel, who gained the Loves to Swim trait to add to all of her other "Loves" traits.
Actually, now that I'm looking at it, the children both look very strangely like their father, but it's so hard to tell at the Child stage.
To bring everyone up to speed with where I am exactly (so there won't be another supremely overstuffed/fast paced update) I have finally aged up Raven to toddler, her traits are Brave and Friendly.

She's every bit of adorable.

Now my readers, breathe a sigh of relief. I promise to slow down now that I'm completely caught up to where I am in game and I am now aware of picture taking. I've mentioned before that I am planning on an off-site heir poll but that won't be for a decent while, as I want all six of the children to be teens (at least) and to have established their personality before anything is decided.
Wait - did I say six?
That must be a typo...

Oh, nope. That was definitely chimes. Man these two are fertile. Well, I solemnly swear to have a half a dozen pictures of Agnes pregnant and glowing for all the pictures I've missed.

To Recap:
Cain(teen): Virtuoso, Friendly, Clumsy, Proper
Aurora(teen): Loner, Genius, Dog-Person, Proper
Isolde(Child): Eccentric, Heavy Sleeper, Easily Impressed
Isabel(Child): Loves the Outdoors, Loves the Heat, Loves to Swim
Raven(Toddler): Brave, Friendly
Unborn Baby Reaper: Nadda.

As I've said before, I'm planning on taking a lot more pictures of these beautiful children, and giving them their own screen-time as well. I'm sorry for the rushed post and lack of pictures, but I am finally caught up to where I am in my game so I can ensure a lot more pictures to come and a lot of personality from all of these beautiful Sims (even their crazy parents).

Also, because I feel bad for not posting much about my beautiful founder and her husband, here are pictures of them in the makeovers I gave them.



Now I declare this overstuffed update finished!

Not to give everything away, but aside from personality, every single one of the children will be linked to a new town based on their Lifetime Wish, some will likely be more obvious than others based on traits while some may catch you by surprise. Hopefully that will help factor in a decision.

So Aurora has one my heart. She is absolutely STUNNING. Cain looks so sad =[ I can't wait to see the rest of this story though, Livvie, so keep it up!
Aurora is absolutely stunning. I'm trying really hard to not play favorites but it's hard when I've known Cain and Aurora the longest (as they are the oldest). I'm excited to say that the twin girls are fireballs and will hopefully open up a whole new view. I'm trying to give all of the children an equal chance at heirship because it's much easier to pick teenagers than it would be to chose a toddler or a child when you don't know much about them.

Thank you all for the support, this family is definitely strong in my heart though.

The Hectic Life of Agnes
Saying Agnes is a good mother is an understatement.
She wakes up bright and early to make her family breakfast, even to the embarrassment of her son.

"Moooooom! Do you really have to walk around the house like that?"
"Do you want your pancakes this morning or would you rather have cold cereal?"
"I love you, mom."
"That's what I thought."
Agnes then rounds her family up to eat at the same time at the dinner table, which is much harder than it seems.

Some are busy being Dinosaurs.
"Rawr! I'm a Dinooosaauuuur!"
"We can see that dear, breakfast is ready."
"But moooom!"
Other's are busy honing skills.

"Come'on Isolde, breakfast."
"But mom! I've almost got it!"
"If you've almost got it now, you'll almost get it later."
Some are writing love notes to their secret admirers.

"Another love note, Cain? It's breakfast time!"
"I'm almost done!"
"Paper and pens aren't going anywhere, dear."
"But, moooom!"
Some children, though, are just now waking up and require a little good-morning tickle.


"Thank you, dear."
"Of course mom! Hey, can I get a car?"
"Can't we just eat breakfast?"
"Pleeaaaaseee?"
"Honey, I'm exasperated, can we talk about this later?"
"But moom!"
"Ugh!"
No, Agnes' work is never done.

Of course once breakfast is over, it's bonding time.

"I barely have time to even start reading a book, let alone finish one."
"Moooom! Isabel and I need new umbrellas!"
"What happened to your other ones, the ones I just got you?"
"We might've, accidentally, uh, left them at school one day?"
"Ugh."
Once the children are boarded onto the bus, Agnes takes time to take care of her other children.



Tragic isn't one of your children...
"Honnneeeyyy! Have you seen my left sock? I thought I left it by my dresser! Oh, and do you think I can get a new car? Maybe something faster?"
I stand corrected.
"Ugh."
You ok there, Agnes?

Looks like a nooboo!
"Ugh."
After cleaning herself up, Agnes takes care of some minor household chores.

And swallows a few apples.

"I want a girl."
...and Cain wants an electric guitar, Aurora wants a new car, Isolde wants more scrap, Isabel wants a jetski and Tragic could do with a new pair of socks, I'm sure Raven wants a million things if she could talk.
"Oh dear, we can't have that!"
Tragic is upstairs teaching her now...
"...TRAGIC NO!"

"And the way you get mommy to get you stuff is to tell her you love her. Oh, and that she's beautiful. Always works for me."
Maybe I shouldn't have had you teach all of the kids how to talk...
"Hey, you said I needed to build a relationship with my kids, they always come out loving Agnes."
Home births are incredible things. Why don't you do Agnes a favor and work on walking?
"Good idea!"


"Com'ere munchkin!"
Aww, you may say they come out loving Agnes, but I'm pretty sure Raven's a daddy's girl.
"Good, I've already lost my chance at convincing Aurora not to grow up, I've still got time with my Raven. Isolde and Isabel are at the perfect age. They should stay that way forever."
I hear Aurora's got a boyfriend.
"Not for long if I can have anything to do about it."
Now, now, Tragic, get used to it, you're going to have to do this at least 3 times more after Aurora.
"But she's my little girl! Ugh! Why can't they believe boys have cooties forever?"
I know it's hard. You and Cain have it rough, living with so many girls.
"No shortage of drama here... maybe we'll have another boy this time?"
I'm working on it. EAT THOSE APPLES AGNES!

"Ugh."
That's your new catchphrase, isn't it?

The kids get home from school abuzz about field trips and the impending prom in a few days. Agnes spends a similar time rounding them up for dinner and homework and puts them all to bed.

"'Nighty-night, my love."
As soon as she tucked herself into bed she was jerked awake.

"Awweh, nooboo."

Yes, saying Agnes is a good mother is most certainly an understatement.

I can't wait to see how the rest of the girls age up. It's always hard to chose and heir like you said but Aurora and Raven...that was the cutest wake up I'd ever seen. She's still got my heart. #TeamAurora. I love Raven's little mohawk, by the way, it's the cutest thing ever.

Glad that I didn’t missed so many chapters :)

Children of Reapers

Have you changed Agnes Lifetime Wish somehow? To made her to have surrounded by Big Family? Or keep her original LTW?
Yes, you’re right! Their children are so adorable and I loved how you dress them! My favorite in this chapter is Aurora, second to that there’s Isolde! Do you use custom skin somehow? I notice Cain skin is little different.

The Hectic Life of Agnes

I really love that first scene that was funny! And Tragic part is another funny one! I always love family bonding moment scene in Sims stories! That was my favorite! Agnes is a good hard-working mother indeed! And my favorites are still those two! Aurora & Isolde!

I love your writing style! It was so natural, flow nicely and enjoyable to read!

I love that hair and clothing on Agnes! It's really pretty amazing, as I've tried it on other sims and it never seems to look 'right', but with her it's perfect.

If you move to a new town are you going to end up taking the whole family? Or just whomever ends up being the heir?

I'm excited to see them too! Unfortunately until the next little one is born things have slowed a little bit in my game. I think I spent 45 minutes (I kid you not) in CAS picking out the *perfect* prom outfit for Aurora. She's very dramatic, and she loves to make an entrance (that's why she always has face paint and exaggerated makeup). I swear to you, that Aurora looks good in every hairstyle. Every. Hairstyle. That's why it took 45 minutes, because I went through every. Single. Hairstyle. Raven is adorable and quirky. I have huge plans for her as well (but I'm not going to say anything about that just yet, all will be revealed in the next chapter).
Agnes' face is priceless as she's stuffing apples xD I love this legacy, even in it's early stages, and wish all the kids could have a chance to grow old together but that's unlikely.
I love that hair and clothing on Agnes! It's really pretty amazing, as I've tried it on other sims and it never seems to look 'right', but with her it's perfect.

If you move to a new town are you going to end up taking the whole family? Or just whomever ends up being the heir? 
I've beaten myself up over that for ages! I really can't decide what I'll do with the family. For a long time I thought, oh, maybe I'll just take them all with me and leave them to story progression... and then the horror sinks in of letting story progression take them.
As of now, the house is practically full (we could have one more large pet, but that would really be overkill on me, I'm a super micro-manager, and poor Bear barely gets enough love from me), so there's no way I could take them all with me and have my heir get married and live all in the same house, I'm still deciding if I'll leave them in town or if I'll take them with me yet. I'm not ready to decide either.
Glad that I didn’t missed so many chapters :)

Children of Reapers

Have you changed Agnes Lifetime Wish somehow? To made her to have surrounded by Big Family? Or keep her original LTW?
Yes, you’re right! Their children are so adorable and I loved how you dress them! My favorite in this chapter is Aurora, second to that there’s Isolde! Do you use custom skin somehow? I notice Cain skin is little different.

The Hectic Life of Agnes

I really love that first scene that was funny! And Tragic part is another funny one! I always love family bonding moment scene in Sims stories! That was my favorite! Agnes is a good hard-working mother indeed! And my favorites are still those two! Aurora & Isolde!

I love your writing style! It was so natural, flow nicely and enjoyable to read!
Yes, I have changed Agnes' and Tragic's LTW to be Surrounded by Family. I used the excuse that after all the Dynasties and such that she's tired of painting and sculpting.
Also, I do confess that I have a few CC items in my game. I used to have a huge amount of hair and clothing but when my game started to bog down I got rid of a lot of it (leaving only a few dresses and my skin and eye replacements). Isolde is a funny girl, I really need to give her some more face time.
Wow, have they been busy. :P
Oh my, very, very busy indeed.

The Little Raven Girl
Raven had an immense amount of time on her hands.

She would often hate being left to her own devices.

But with the size of her family, she's learned to cope.

It wasn't before long that I deemed her to be ready.

Agnes gathered her little girl and brought her to the cake while Tragic cheered her on.
And that's when I discovered how different she was.




An extraordinary girl in an ordinary girl's body.

I knew then. I sent Agnes to receive a special birthday gift that would be a gift to Raven from me.

"I was told to give this to you love-bug. The watcher told me specifically to give this to you. I wasn't allowed to open it."
Raven smiled a knowing smile, I had come through for her after all.
Raven excused herself and ran up to her room she shared with Isabel and Isolde. Everyone was at school now, so she would have the room to herself.

"You came through!" She beamed.
Of course I did. I knew from your birth what you would be, but fate wasn't as kind to you as it was to your older sisters.
"Aurora never cared, not the way I did. She was always pretty, she didn't need anything else."
Just because you don't look like Aurora doesn't mean you're not pretty too.
"All of my sisters are lucky. They were born special. I'm just the the little Raven girl."
Don't be unkind to yourself child. Open your birthday gift.
"I'm a little scared..."
You don't need to be, I'm right here and I know this will work. It worked with your mom.
"You mean, my mom did this?"
Absolutely.



"I don't feel very different... maybe it didn't take?"
It took dear, you don't need to worry about it.
"Does this mean I'm special now too?"
You always were.
"Can I be an alchemist like my mom?"
You can be whatever you want to be.
"How about a fairy?"
I'll think about it. Now go and have a fun day off of school.
"Yay!"
After Raven was taken care of, I needed to shift my focus to the children coming back from school.

"We need to hurry! It's prom night!"
Oh, please don't ignore Bear, he went out of his way to bring you the newspaper...
"Prom... hello!"
Don't worry Bear, I love you.
"Liv! I need a new Prom outfit!"
"Why doesn't your dress work?"
"Shut it Cain! You only have to show up in a suit, I can't be seen in a dress more than once!"
"What is it with girls and all of these ridiculous social rules?"
Tragic patted his son's shoulder. "You don't want to know son, you really don't want to know."

So Aurora prettied and primped herself with the help of Agnes and I.

She was beautiful, of course. Just for fun, I grabbed a picture with Agnes' current hairstyle to show you the similarities.

She's all Agnes.
Aurora attended the prom with Garth French, he was a very handsome boy who decided to not wear the Tux I gave him.

While Cain took his crush of many years - Shawna Kimura-Steel

The dance went off without a hitch and both Aurora and Cain won Prom Court.
Their Prom pictures catch their personality spot-on.


While they were tearing it up at Prom, everyone else was bonding over a dinner.

They were a very close knit family and they liked it that way. Agnes and Tragic could feel the heir-poll looming in their future, and they both hoped and silently wished that it wouldn't tear their family apart when they would sit down their beautiful children to talk about it. Agnes rubbed her pregnant belly as a soft reminder that she wouldn't need to make a huge deal out of it just yet.
At least, so she thought.

To Recap:
Cain(Teen): Virtuoso, Friendly, Clumsy, Proper.
Aurora(Teen): Loner, Natural Born Performer(was Genius)*, Dog Person, Proper.
Isolde(Child): Eccentric, Heavy Sleeper, Easily Impressed.
Isabel (Child): Loves the Outdoors, Loves the Heat, Loves to Swim.
Raven(Child): Brave, Friendly, Supernatural Fan - - - Revealed LTW: Alchemy Artisan
Unborn Baby Reaper: Nadda.

*I recently found out that Aurora's LTW I had always planned for her actually didn't require the logic skill. I adjusted this trait because it fit her personality more as well, not that she isn't smart but she can be a little over-the-top.

The next chapter will likely be more informative on each of the children, and hopefully a new face will make an appearance!

Oh my gosh I can't even begin to tell you...
I almost hate that I've decided to make sure the heir moves and marries in the new town. Garth and Aurora are so, incredibly adorable together. Garth (the name) has a special place in my heart, so when I saw a child was named that (unfortunately I can't even remember who the father was, I know his mom was Molly French - I think that's her name, lives in the Single Moms household...) I rushed over the minute he became a toddler and aged him up just to see what kind of Sim would get one of my favorite names...
And he was GORGEOUS aged up in CAS, so I included him in the story without a doubt. I have so many little behind the scenes tidbits that I'm saving up for a Rainy day... it'll be fun!

Is there any restriction when using mods in Legacy? I really want to see townies children too!

Raven is adorable; she just looks like Agnes in younger version of her. When it comes to Life State, Witch is my most favorite! Second to that is Genie, but I can't stand their blue skin (So, I edit them in CAS somehow ::) )

Cain prom picture somehow make me laugh, haha. But, I never get prom Picture like Aurora, I really loved her version!

Legacies are really open to interpretation.
The most common Legacy rules are Pinstar's (but if you have any vague idea about them then you know I've already failed miserably) but he hasn't updated his rules since World Adventures. With so much new gameplay and additional features it's really up to you. *I* have defined a Legacy as any multi-generational Sims game (I usually say the least amount of generations for it to count as a Legacy would be 10, but that's my opinion of it vaguely using Pinstars Rules). That's it. Whatever I feel I want to do or add to make those 10 generations enjoyable is up to me. I guess it also depends on the Legacy you want to play.
In my case I made up this legacy out of my head, I want each heir to move to a new town when they become of age (or around it). Because a legacy has so many different interpretations, mods usually aren't an issue and are usually acceptable.

Aurora is stunning, we al know she gets it from her mum ^.^ Oh, Cain, you know how to make a girl laugh - I really can't get the prom photo out of my head. Pretty Raven, all your children have amazing genetics and I'm looking forward to meeting the next baby.

Amazing update!  The pictures from when Raven received her gift were so dramatic and your writing had me almost in tears.  I love this story.  You are very talented.

Thank you both, and I am really enjoying this challenge, I can't wait to see who will be selected as heir... while if left to my own devices I think I know who I would pick, but I really want to challenge myself to play other areas, so I think that's why I love leaving it up to vote. :)
Anyways, this weekend I'll be up North doing some apartment hunting and furniture collecting, so I know I won't be updating for a while, I'll try to get another update in tomorrow but I have my graduation party in the evening, I'll do my best though. :)

The Reapers Stick Together
Many things are happening in the home of the Reapers.
It was decided while Cain and Aurora were still at Prom that Isolde and Isabel would age up.
First up was Isolde.


Than Isabel. Both girls gained the Proper trait.


The two girls had a style that were uniquely theirs, and their differences came out more now.
"My lips are pretty big..."
You'll grow into them Bel, besides, I actually feel you look strikingly different, very beautiful.
"I never said it was a bad thing... I have the perfect lips for kissing!"
Oh, well don't let your father here that...

Agnes' pregnancy was progressing very well.

The next day would be a difficult day for everyone, Cain and Aurora would struggle with the post-prom-late-night hangover, Isolde and Isabel would be facing a new day in the brutal world of high school, but I think the child who was most petrified of the new day was Raven, she didn't even come down to join the festivities of the night before, she just played with Edoif, her doll on the bathroom floor, the only place she could find privacy.

"Elementary School won't be that bad, right Edoif? No... it shouldn't be."
After school had passed the next day, and with the new freedom of the younger twins everyone sought out different activities.

Isabel Snorkeled in freezing cold water. Are you sure that's healthy Bel?
"I'm wearing a wetsuit! Besides, I'm in the PolarBear Club! We don't get sick from cold."
If you say so...
"You're the one who decided we even needed to have a winter! I want to move someplace warm where I can snorkel and scuba dive all year long!"
Like Isla Paradiso?
"Yeah! I'll have wicked parties at night and swim all day. When I get tired I can just chill in the sand and get a tan... not something I've been able to do ever!"
Sorry, you were a fall baby, there wasn't anything I could do about it!
"Sure, now do you mind?"
Oh, right. On the other hand Isolde was searching for scrap for her newest invention.

"I discovered how to make a toy dog, I want to make one and give it to Raven, she was so apprehensive about today."
You're a good big sister.
Meanwhile, back at the school, Cain and Aurora were discussing Raven getting home. The school bus had stop working (not that it ever worked well to begin with) which left them all to their own devices on how to get home.

"I've got the car, Aur'a, I can take her home."
"You sure you don't mind waiting?"
"Nah, you couldn't keep a good balance on mom's old vacuum anyways. I'll see you at home."
"Good point, how about tomorrow I get the car and you can go home while I wait? We can take turns?"
"Deal."
So Cain waited outside the school for Raven.

"I hate calculus."
You and me both. I've got a bad feeling about something, maybe you should check on Raven?
"It's not even 3 yet, she'll be out soon."
By the time 3:30 rolled around Cain looked up from his guitar he'd started to play.
"I'm going to go in and get her, maybe she got lost?"
Good idea.
Cain walked into the School and turned left to get to the Elementary wing. For the most part, it was deserted. He turned a corner and saw the Alto kid as he shoved a little girl over.
"Leave me alone!" Raven sniffled. Emanuel Alto went to stoop down over her to make a snarky remark but he was caught. Something big had a hold of his backpack.
"Apologize." Cain spoke coldly, glaring at the wide-eyed boy who stared at him in shock. "Did you hear me? I told you to apologize."
"I-I-I'm s-s-so-sorry." Emanuel sputtered out quickly.
Cain bent low and level with the child, he was always a level-headed guy but this kid had made him angry. "If I happen to learn about you doing anything like this again to anyone else, you'll be speaking to me about it, but if you so much as look meanly at my sister again, you'll regret it." With that, he dropped the poor 11 year old and watched as the kid ran off and out of sight. Raven wiped her tears away with scraped hands as Cain helped her up. "Let's get out'ta here kiddo."
When the exited the building, Raven collapsed into Cain's hug.

"Why do you smell like old food?"
Raven wiped her nose as she sniffled. "Some of Emanuel's friends and him pushed me into the lunch garbage after they took my lunch money. I'm really hungry." A tear fell from her eyes as her lower lip quivered. "I tried to tell them to leave me alone but they just thought it was funny." Her shoulders shook with sobs. Cain clenched his jaw, angry at himself for letting the Alto kid off so easily. It was probably for the best.
"Do you want to go home?"
"No, I don't want everyone to see..." She wiped another tear away. "They're so busy with the baby and I don't mind... besides, mommy will only call the school and make things so much worse..."
Cain nodded, "come'on then, we won't go home. How about we get you something to eat?" He said softly as he picked a piece of napkin that was left out of Raven's hair. "I promise you, nothing like what happened today will ever happen again, ok?"
"How do you know?" Raven sniffled.
"Because we're Reapers, and Reapers stick together." Hearing him say that made Raven smile. Her family was always huge, but she was never alone.
So while others were gathering around the dinner that Aurora had made herself - Raven's favorite of Peanut Butter and Jelly, Cain took Raven to the Diner.


After Raven had cleaned herself up and finished her burger, Cain drove them both home. He sent Raven upstairs to shower out the leftover food smell and told her he'd help her with her homework afterward. Agnes and Tragic were busily getting the nursery ready again, so they didn't notice their daughter's smell, or the red rings around her eyes. Her siblings however, were much more perceptive. Cain bee-lined to his twin.

"You can't be serious? That Alto kid? Oh, he'll pay."
"What's going on?" Isabel looked up from her sandwich. Isolde poked her head from around the corner too, not missing a beat.
"That Alto kid, Emanuel was bullying our sister." Aurora said firmly.
A fire lit up behind Isolde's eyes. "Oh, that kid will regret doing that... just wait until I invent something-"
"No, no." Cain said firmly. "I gave the kid the scare of his life. We can't go around picking on people younger than us though, it's not right. We need a more defensive plan."
"I've got it!" Aurora smiled. She laid it out for Cain.

"I'm in!" The two girls shouted from the table.
Cain smiled. "Me too."
Cain went upstairs to play the piano in his room for a little longer while the girls worked out the details.

"Cain, can you help with my homework?"
"Of course! What's it for tonight?"
"Basic multiplication."
"Multiplication? Didn't you just start school?"
"I already knew the basics, the teacher said I needed more challenging stuff."
"I think you're a secret genius, how long have you been hiding that talent?"
Raven just smiled.

Together they flew through her homework, and as their watcher it made me proud to see the bond between oldest brother and his baby sister. I left them be for the rest of the night until Cain read her to sleep. Tomorrow he would make sure Raven had a better day, he counted on it.

Later that night, a special appearance was made.

Though I'm sure all the pictures I have of Agnes giving birth are awesome, I'm just going to cut to what everyone wants to see:

In no time at all, a boy was brought into the world, a Perceptive Loner. I wasted no time rushing him to an off the lot cake.
And now I present to you, the final child of Agnes and Tragic Reaper.
Aliester Reaper.



To Recap:
Cain(Teen): Virtuoso, Clumsy, Friendly, Proper.
Aurora(Teen): Loner, Natural Born Performer (was genius), Dog Person, Proper.
Isolde(Teen): Eccentric, Heavy Sleeper, Easily Impressed, Proper.
Isabel(Teen): Loves the Outdoors, Loves the Heat, Loves to Swim, Proper. Town Revealed: Isla Paradiso
Raven(Child): Brave, Friendly, Supernatural Fan. LTW: Alchemy Artisan.
Aliester(Toddler): Perceptive, Loner.

I thought about leaving Aliester for another day, but decided that if there was a chance I might not post tomorrow that I at least show you some toddler love! Hopefully tomorrow I can get a small segment in on how Cain, Aurora, Isolde and Isabel plan to handle the situation at school for their sister Raven. I was trying to make this chapter emotional enough to show some bonds between the children. Hopefully, it wasn't too cheesy! Comments and questions are always welcome!
