The Hartfields | GRAVEYARD, PLEASE!
« on: August 19, 2014, 02:38:19 PM »

Hi guys,
I couldn't resist it any longer. I've started a new storybased legacy. Yes, all the cool kids and their awesome legacies made me want to try it out again, so here I am. The legacy will play out in Dragon Valley with a Milena Hartfield as the founder. I'm planning on going for five gens, because last time I tried the fifth gen was the point where I sort of lost steam :P We'll see where this goes, if anywhere.
The prologue is up on my new blog, so, if you like, have a look :) You can find more info on the blog as well.

Hope you enjoy!

Chapters:

Generation 1 - Milena Hartfield:
000. Prologue
001. The LTT
002. Here Comes the Sun
003. Properly Paranoid
004. Good Guys
005. The Folly of Youth
006. Consequences
007. Talented Travellers
008. Hartfield and Finnigan
009. Business as Unusual
010. Hatred
011. Silence*
012. Sanctuary*

Generation 2 - Charlotte Hartfield:
013. No Matter
014. The Search
015. Anti-Social Gathering
016. Trust No One
017. The Charlotte in Us All
018. One Moment
019. Calliope
020. The Ghost*
021. Enemies*
022. Potential*
023. Nowhere*
024. The Art of Teleportation*
025. Today Is the Day*
026. A Happy Family*
027. Life Never Lived*
028. Time*

The rest of the story can be read on the blog. I've decided to stop posting her for the sake of creative freedom.
Hope my readers here will still find their way to the blog at times.

Well, nothing was wrong with Milena Hartfield’s face. It was her person; her very being.
It was as though the cloud of expensive perfume around her covered up some kind of anomaly. It sort of hit him that she shouldn’t exist.

The Prologue is up! Read it here.

“Agency is, perhaps, a better term. I’m an agent with The LTT, or the League of Time Travellers.” Aaron was quiet for a long time, no expression showing on his face. Finally Hartfield snorted and said: “Yeah, we get that kind of reaction a lot.”

Chapter 1 is up! Read it here :)

Their eyes met. She shook her head so quick, like it was instinct, but then said:

“You know I’m not a good person, right?”

A couple of weeks ago, on the worst day of his life, he would have agreed right away. At this instant, though, looking at the raw emotion in her eyes, he wasn’t so sure.

Chapter 2 is up! Read it here.

“When I’m away, Aaron, do me a favour?”

“Hm?”

“Don’t do something stupid.”

He instantly turned his gaze away.

Guilty eyes finally looked back at her. She never did believe that you could tell a lie just from a person’s face, but guilt she did know.

Chapter 3 is now up! Read it here.

It was a feeling like no other. Absolute ambivalence. At once, she loved this, the surge of the power driven by her rage, and hated it. It reminded her of her past and the things she had done but oh how she loved it, too.
“Let go of Finnigan and hand him over,” she said, her voice cold.

Chapter 4 is up! Read it here.

It had been like a loud crack in young Milena’s head and a power welled up inside her. She could feel all the people around her and she could grab them. Metaphorically hold them in the palm of her hand and tell them what to do… and they magically did it.

Chapter 5 is up. Read it here!

“And the alternative?”

“You go back to the Dragon Valley Safe House and you stay there. You won’t be allowed to travel, you will receive no field missions, you won’t be allowed in Oasis Landing as long as you decide to stay there. I don’t trust your judgement when you’re near that house.”

Milena looked up at him. “And that’s the choice I have to make?”

He nodded.

“Very well.”

Chapter 6 is (finally?) up. Read it here!

Their eyes met and for a long time, he didn’t say anything. She was clutching the glass hard in her hand, all the while he held her gaze. She could have said something. It felt like a pivotal moment, a potential point of no return. An intersection.

Turn right for potentially scary human interaction.

The next chapter of The Hartfields is up! :) Read it right here.

It was like the conversation died out in their embrace. She was in an almost trance-like state, like she could have fallen asleep in his arms. The warmth she had been trying so hard to avoid had never been this powerful.

Next chapter is up - read it here :)

The name was still hanging in the air between them. He hadn’t used it since she left. At first it was the sadness that had kept him from using it, then the anger, and now it was to keep both of those at bay.

Chapter 9 is (finally) up - read it here.

Aaron’s head was spinning. “What do you mean it’s about Hartfield? You weren’t after me because of my work? You were after her all along-“

He couldn’t speak any longer because suddenly his head felt like it exploded and a white hot hatred burned inside him. The anger he had felt towards Milena was picked up and enhanced and while it burned him up, Siobahn caressed his cheek.

Chapter 10 is up - read it here.

Chapter 11 is up, but seeing as it's a teensy bit violent and sort of sweary, I'm not allowed to post here. If you guys are interested, you probably know where to find it on the blog. Cheers!

Really well written! It did take me a minute to remember everything going on, I had to reread the last chapter.

Thanks a bunch :)
It's understandable that you'd forget - I do take quite a bit of time between chapters these days. The hassle of having a social life - it cuts down your simming/writing time!

Just to make sure, I won't like the next chapter either. It's not violent or swear-y. I just want to be sure I don't break the rules. It is up on the blog nonetheless.

I didn't have time for a proper read through, but I skimmed the images and quotes and am mightily intrigued.  Seems a far more serious tone than some of your other work.

Understandable! There's a lot to read and the chapters are ridiculously long. Still, glad to hear you had a look :)
The tone is fairly serious - surely more serious than The Amazing Hollander... but then I'm fairly certain everything's more serious than that ;)

That may be true, but I do adore the Hollander nonsense  :=)

Hiya guys - I'm back with generation 2! Time to meet the heir and realise that she's seriously messed up. What's wrong with me?! Read to find out (but probably not).
You can read chapter 13 right here!

“I can’t Search very well here,” Charlotte told Shaun, turning towards the studio’s sets.
At this point, she could still Search, but it was harder than usual, she was tiring quicker. As she told him this, Shaun’s eyes lit up.
“That’s the Sanctuary.”

Chapter 14 is ready for reading right here :)
