The Herbal Dynasty - The last try
« on: December 06, 2013, 01:34:45 PM »
This will be my final Immortal Dynasty try. I've given up on to many stories, because I got bored, because no one read them and because save files got lost. For whoever will follow this dynasty, I say thank you. I may not be the best dynasty story writer here. I just wanted to share my quest to finally finish the dynasty. I don't care about the hall of fame, but I do try to play by the rules.
I've played ahead quite far. I've wanted to see if this family would work before posting it. So I'm currently in generation 4 I think... Anyways posting this will get me right back to the beginning of the story.
So please enjoy my final attempted to this challenge!

Week 1 - Starting

Hello, let me introduce myself. I'm Peppermint Herbal, chosen to start at this Immortal Dynasty. It's strange to start your life as a young adult. I don't know my past and I'm full of ambitions in a new town. What I didn't know whas that I would start out with nothing. No money, no skills, no job, no friends, nothing. Not very glamorous... Well I guess I have no other choice but to just dive into life and make the best of it. The Herbal Immortal Dynasty, I sure do love the sound of that! Union Cove here I come!



So let me show you around my euhm house, furniture...



Not much but it's a start. So from here I got myself a job at the restaurant. It's my dream to one day became a celebrated five star chef. Starting at the bottom is, not really nice, but I get to make friends. Next to that, my boss Seab Ody is really good looking! It was real easy making friends with him.



My other quest was to make friends with my neighbor across the street, Thea Voice. She seems like a nice person and did I mention she is rich? Well what better place to make friends then at the local festival grounds.




After some great times together I asked Thea to move in and she was more then happy to. I get a friend and a house!




I asked Thea if she would take up on painting and start a nice garden. Much to my surprise she was more than happy to do so.

Thank you and I'll try my best  ;D

Week 2

So this week started off really good for me as I already got promoted five times in my job! I must be natural cook! While I was celebrating that I kind of forgot about Thea's birthday (she did too I think, painting so much..). Sorry about that Thea...



Thea did find some odd seeds and planted them in the garden, I guess we'll have to see what kind of plant sprouts from them...



While I was taking a break I met this guy at the beach, I was speechless... That wonderful blue skin tone those eyes... I could only thing of the gorgeous baby we would produce. But not to get ahead of things, we are just friends, for now.




After getting back from the beach Thea came to me and said she had to paint my portrait. I felt a little awkward at that. I asked her if she was insane, but I guess I already knew the answer to that.. She said that every dynasty should have portraits and insane or not I had to agree. So she is currently working on my portrait and doing a great job!



My boss, Seab invited me to a party and guess who was there?



I couldn't help myself really even though I know he's married. I mean look at him! He didn't seem to mind...

Beautiful green founder. Check.
Beautiful blue "friend". Check.
100% chance of a cute toddler? Check, check, check.

Im not much of a story writer myself, and not much of a commenter on the stories, but please don't give up because of us, as long as you have fun play. Even when not many are replying to your stories. No comments are not stopping me either, I love my sims to much for that.

I remember that in the Gwenyth Dojo dynasty, Gwenyth is green (right?) and she married a man with a light blue skin tone. They had a pink child. I wonder what will happen with a dark shade of blue.....

I hope you make it to the end this time! I don't have UC due to my computer being glitchy from a download version of IP, but there you go. Do not get downloads. Ever.

Thanks everyone! I really love UC. I've tried dynasties in other towns but I always come back to UC. I checked up on my game and I'm currently in week 12 and generation 3 is a teen. I'll start playing again soon. Didn't have the chance because I just moved, but first want to get this story going.

@ Nettlejuise: UC is great. I'll try to put in as many names and faces as possible. I've played it so much that it's kinda home, so if things become unclear due to the lack of information, please let me know.
@ pugster101: Skin tones work really funny. I can tell you that I was a little surprised by some I got.
@ Eldrigde: I can assure you Peppermint will not let him go easy ;) married or not!
@ Jamie: Thank you! I didn't know if I wanted a green sim at first but I made her a while ago and in the end went with her as a founder and I am found of her. Her clumsiness is really funny!
@ Rikki8528: No downloads really don't work for the sims. I hope you can get it fixed soon! Thanks for the support!

Okay so on to the next week!

Week 3

Thea was acting odd so I talked to her and figured she's in a midlife crisis so I got her a little gift (after I had sold her car...). Luckily it settled her down a bit. She is crazy enough without a midlife crisis...



After that party I just couldn't forget about Steven! It did keep me up at night, I mean he's married! So I couldn't ask him at the party... I invited him over and Thea there made it a lot easier. In a private moment I asked Steven to break up with Nicole. He said yes! After that I had all the courage I needed and when he was done with his ahem private business I popped the question!




I maybe could have picked a more romantic spot, but it was good enough. Not wanting him to change his mind I sealed the deal right there.




I asked a lot of him, making him leave his son and home, selling his car... But I love him and I need his genes him in this dynasty. Well he did get to pursue his dream and got a career in science and I had the three of us a new house build!



We settled in pretty easy in this new house. Fun and easygoing. Then I found something out....



Yes our child! The second generation on it's way! I really hope that it'll be a girl. Not Steven, he wants a boy. Well we'll see about that!

Still in my high of the pregnancy I got myself a lamp got out the genie and bought Sunset Beach (where Steven and I met). I also fully upgraded it so we can make some more money!



Thea has been very busy lately and I figured she needed a break. She came back a little to happy after that, She's met someone. She just won't tell me who...






I'd almost forget that I was pregnant... Things are a little crazy around here... Luckily I didn't end up hurt. Steven was worried about that, he says I'm too clumsy for my own good.



Giving birth... never again! It hurts sooo bad! But she was well worth it!



Meet my little girl Lavender! She was born on day five of week three. I think she's the most adorable baby on the planet and so does Steven! No matter how old he grows (yes he died his hair after his elder birthday), He loves his little girl.




So yeah Steven is now an Elder. He had wanted to let it pass by quietly, but I caught him anyways.




And my birthday came and went too.



So I was done with this week, tired being a new mom, but Thea ended it with a little surprise of her own (and to herself...)

UC is beautiful, it's even more special since members of the forum created it. I really should download it soon. The house looks wonderful, it really blends into the world and made me think it was a pre-built lot already ^_^ Welcome, Lavender! Congrats to Thea also. Who is the father?

Yes that is why I love UC so much. Thank you on the house! It did came out better then I hoped. As for Thea's lover, his name is Sports Fan. He is the brother of Seab Ody, who is Peppermints boss.
This is a picture from my former dynasty, left is Seab Ody and right is Sports Fan.

Week 4

As hectic as last week ended this week starts. Thea gives birth to a baby boy, Bjorn on the first day of this week.




Happy with all the new life in this house we all forgot to pay the bills. I really need to do something about that, because a visit of the repoman dampened all of our spirits.



After that I wanted to throw a party to make us all forget and what is better for a party than the birthday of my lovely daughter. Time flies by so fast. It is nice though to finally see who she takes after. And too see all of our friends was nice too. My boss, Seab came and he brought his brother to see his son. Thea was so happy to see Sports again. This time I just gave them some privacy, so no pictures on that.





After the party I went back to cooking and mastered it! I'm so happy a step closer to fulfilling my dream! Steven took a new hobby and started fishing. I bought him an aquarium so the fish can have a new life at our house.



Life is going well. We all love the little childeren and Lavender is my pride and joy. She is too cute for words.




I am a little worried about Thea's insanity and how it will affect Bjorn... Lets just hope he gets the better traits from his father.



When Thea isn't there for Bjorn she is painting. As long as she is alive she wants a portrait done of all our life stages. For later she says. I asked het to not just make portraits of me and Lavender, but one of herself, Steven and later on Bjorn too. All of them are important to me. She said she'd think about it. She did master painting, so it'll give her some more time.




I went clubbing on my own one night, because I got a call to try a new drink. It was nice and I really would like to do this more often. Next time with everyone.



Bjorn just had his birthday, we all forgot about it... He aged up while Steven was feeding him. Steven felt bad about it and left for a while on Thea's bike.

I'll try to give you as much info as possible. I don't have information on all of them though...
I have one. The green boy in this picture is Stevens son, Jake Brustle. and in the picture below he's talking to Peppermint.

Well here's a bunch of friendly faces I love and miss! Thea Voice and Steven Brustle! Looking forward to more Union Cove and rainboo adventures. Lavender is pretty aptly named--she could've been born a completely different color.

@ Hallucination: I love tea, so I guess that's why the names :P Thank you!
@ Rhoxi: It's been a long time. I've been to busy with a lot of things in my life. Moving, planning a wedding, stuff like that :) Thank you and for me it just feels bad not to play my dynasties in UC.
@ Tiamet: Peppermint is one of the most fun founders I've ever had. I'm a little kinder to her too ;)
@Pugster: Hahaha and nope, but I'll keep that one a secret for a while longer ;)

Thank you all so much for reading. Updating might be slow. I'm currently helping out my girlfriends brother, because he got kicked out of his house by his ex... And besides that I'm also still organizing the house.
Anyways here is week 5 :D

Edit: added the correct screenshot

Week 5



Steven just loves the kids! When Thea isn't around he'll secretly goes and learns Bjorn to walk. Thea thinks her son is brilliantly smart. Well he is a bit of a genius, but with Stevens help it all goes a little faster.

Lavenders birthday came around so fast! The years seem more like days to me. She is a child now and will start going to school!





She started painting like her "aunt" Thea.




Bjorn is also growing up fast. I'm really happy that Lavender and Bjorn get to grow up together.   





Steven went out fishing very late at the graveyard, because he felt like doing that. I told him he was insane... On top of that he brought home a really stange fish and aked me to prepare a meal with it. A fish like that can't taste good at all!




I wen't looking for a recipe at the bookstore and after hours of looking a found a dusty old recipe book called Ambrosia. I have no idea if this dish will even taste good. I'll have to test it first. Well at least I have a purpose for the weird fruit Thea harvested too.



I'm doing good at my job. I'm almost the top of the line. One more promotion and my wish will come true, a celebrated five star chef! Next to that I can't learn anything more in cooking. Who would've thought that something as simple as mac 'n cheese would teach me everything I needed to know. To celebrate I bought myself a car.



Thea is growing old. I don't want her too. Her insanity is something I've grown to love. I secretly hope she wished for many more years to come at her birthday cake. Steven being old is difficult enough.



This world is really strange, at the end of this week it started snowing, a day before summer!



And to really end this week to pictures a secretly took while walking around the garden.

It looks like you're doing well on this attempt.  I had a little laugh about Sports Fan and Seab Ody.  I don't play Union Cove and had forgotten about all of the residents.  Seab Ody is one of our new Moderators.  :)
