Wannabe Princess Dynasty - Love Is An Open Door
« on: June 07, 2015, 11:33:24 AM »
Chapter One - This Is Gonna Be Good

Charlotte La Bouff was a determined woman.  She had a dream, nay, a destiny.  Something called to her, told her that she was born to be a princess.  Even after the fiasco with Tiana and the frog, she had not given up.  So when a shadowy voice spoke to her, she was more than ready to listen.

"I want to do another dynasty," Tia told her.

"And I'll be the princess this time, right?" Charlotte asked eagerly.

"Not right away," Tia said.  "I have seven other girls who should be princesess as well.  If you all get to the end of the dynasty, I'll crown you all."

"Me first!" Lottie yelled, jumping up and down.

"I've only got the base game installed," Tia cautioned her.  "It won't be easy.  There's no quick money, no potions or vacations.  There's not even a motive mobile."

"Don't care, let's get started," Lottie exclaimed, tugging Tia to the computer.

"But the requirements..." Tia started, but it was too late.  Lottie had launched herself into the game.



"Okay, where do I live?  Where do I get decent clothes?  What do I need to do?"

Tia handed her a list.  Lottie read it over quickly, then looked up in horror.  "I have no money?" she shrieked.  "And I have to learn to cook?"

"Big ol' crown for you at the end of it," Tia said.

"Right!  Where's the cooking school?"  Lottie was off and running.  She spent her first day taking a cooking class, getting a job at the Bistro and reading the cooking manual at the library.  Charismatic as anything, she met people, winning them over with her bubbly personality.

"I've got a date, Tia!" she exclaimed, after showering at the gym.  "Gus Hart called me up!"

"Um, about Gus," Tia started, but Lottie was gone again.



"You're home early," Tia remarked, as Lottie huffed back onto the lot.

"Oh, it was awful!" Lottie said, pacing.  "All he wanted to talk about was his muscles and his mullet.  And then I found out about Dory."

"Dory?"

"His partner, he claims.  Ha!  I know Dory, she looks after Nemo.  She wouldn't be caught dead with someone like him."

"Gotcha," Tia sighed.



"I'm just going to make a snack and go to bed.  Maybe tomorrow I'll meet Mr Right."

I'm expecting great things from this dynasty.

Clever idea after seeing a number of Disney princess dynasties/legacies/etc. that used the official princesses.

Thanks, Wolf!  *huggles back*

Way to put on the pressure, Trip!  :P  You know my brain is slightly twisted.

Great start!  ;D

Thanks, Oh Fabulous One!  Hope I don't let you down!

Oh, I can't wait to see who the other princesses will be. And playing base game only, wow, you are brave. Best of luck =]

Thanks, Nettlejuice!  Gwendy gave me a hand deciding on the lineup, so I think it's going to be entertaining.

Only the base game? You are very brave.

Only if brave is another word for crazy, KRae.  I always wanted to try it, since it was designed for the base game.  But I miss the motive mobile, I tell you what!  And self-employment.

Chapter Two - Bring Honor To Us

"Tia, look who I found!" Lottie exclaimed.  "You remember Grandma Fa?"

"Lottie, that's not..."



"And she brought Cri-Kee!  Isn't he adorable?"



"Grandma, why is Lottie calling me that?" Sam asked, puzzled.  "What's happening?"

"I'm with Cri-Kee, here," Tia said, rubbing her eyebrow.  "What's your game, Yumi?"

The old woman shrugged.  "I want more grandchildren.  Sam needs a mother.  And Lottie and Leighton are crazy about each other."

"Does she think he's Mushu?" Tia asked.

"Don't be silly." Yumi snapped.  "I'm just helping things along."



"By actually being part of the date that gets them married?  I may have underestimated you, Yumi."  Tia apologized.

Sam was immediately chained to an easel, painting until he fell down from exhaustion.  Leighton added gardening to his skills, while Lottie cooked and Yumi checked the stove, freaked out, and bossed people happily.

"Coffee maker, Tia," she said.  "We need one.  Leighton," she called to her son, sweating over the plants, "that row isn't quite straight."

"Lottie, I'm scared," Sam confessed one day.  "What if I can't get this all done?"

"Don't you worry, Cri-Kee, you're a lucky bug," Lottie told him.  "And I love you already."



She came in like a hurricane, but she got the dynasty off to a good start.  Then the inevitable happened.



"It's time," the Reaper told her.

"I'm surprised I didn't drop down as soon they got married," Yumi replied.  "Disney has never been kind to mothers.

*grins*  Thanks, Wolf!  I'd never played Yumi before, but she is awesome!

This is too funny! Looking forward to more  :)

Thank you, Malley, I hope you enjoy the rest!

Haha! Excellent! Yumi's last comment about Disney is very funny.

Thanks, CeresIn.  Disney mom's never seem to get a break.

Thanks for the bookmark, mpart.  I'm glad you like it!

Love it! Looking forward to the next chapter!  :D

Thanks, Rikki8528, it's coming right up!

Chapter Three - Let it Go


"Leighton?" Lottie called.  "Can you still hear Grandma Fa?  I swear, her voice is stuck in my head."



"Yeah, me too," Leighton called back.  "I know she wanted us to have a baby, but we've been so busy."



"And poor!" Lottie continued.  "Even with selling off everything we can, I don't see how we're ever going to get the money together for the property."

"I'm looking for money tree seeds," Leighton told her.  "But I haven't found one yet."

"I guess we'll just have to wait a little longer," Lottie sighed.

"Right," Tia said, grinning.  "We've got a schedule, you know."



"Eww!" Lottie jumped into the shower.  "Nobody said anything about this."



Gwendy's Pa strolled by.  "Why are they all in corrals?" he asked, stopping to watch for a moment.

"Mum can't build houses."  Gwendy told him, sipping her coke.

"They're very comfy corrals," Tia pointed out.  "And there's no weather or seasons."

"Excuse me," Lottie called.  "I think the baby is coming, if y'all wouldn't mind getting back to the story."



"Whoops!  Sorry, Lottie.  Just keep breathing and making those faces."



And sparkles and voila!



"Hello, Kida!" Tia smiled.

"Kida?  From Atlantis?  She's already a..."  Tia shushed Lottie.

"Don't say it!  You'll just make her cranky!  She has some firm opinions on that!"

Of course as soon as Kida aged up...



Lottie started questioning her.

"You're already a princess," she said.  "Back in Atlantis, with the fish and everything else."



"Oh, really?"  Kida said, showing an extreme amount of snark for a child so young.  "Have you ever seen my dolls?  All the little girls dress up like me for Halloween, yes?"  She shook her head.  "It's all about Elsa!  I didn't even get a song!"

"It might have been a little difficult since you weren't speaking English," Tia put in.  "Maybe you should let this go, have some fun with the dynasty."

"But you saved the kingdom!" Lottie protested.  "Technically, you're a queen."

"So is Elsa!  No, I'm going to be a princess." Kida said, setting her jaw.  "Nothing's going to stop me.  I've got a plan, Lottie."

Thanks, Malley!  Kida is a handful, I've got to say...

*evil grin*  It did cross my mind.

I love Kida!! She's a toddler with attitude. :D

And the chapter's name... I don't know if sit well with Kida.

Kida's a lot of fun, a very sarcastic character.  She didn't like the title too much, no.   ;)

Nice start :)

(And good luck with finding the missing drive with Jareth and co.)

Thanks, Hazelnut.  I'm trying to find it now by looking for other things, since that's when I always find what I'm not looking for.

Another Tia story *squeeeee* *fangirls all over the forum*

I love how this one has started out. Can't wait to read more :-)

Aww, thanks, Magpie!  You're too sweet. ;D

Sorry for the delay, kids, it's summer in the North where I live, which means lots of company, berry season, getting things fixed around the house, etc.  I'll try to keep to some kind of weekly schedule.

Chapter Four - Colors of the Wind

Things in the dynasty world either go extremely fast or at a snail's pace.  Sometimes it's a little of both.  Kida's time as a toddler was over very quickly and she was eager to get on with her birthday.

"What are you going to wish for?" Lottie asked her.



"Multitasker, so I can get A's and get into law school."  Kida said confidently.

"Whoa, back up the truck a minute," Tia said.  "There's no lawyers in this game."

"Doo Pea Corporate Towers?" Kida replied.  "Obviously corporate lawyers in there, right?"

"Um," Tia and Lottie said together.

"Trust me." Kida smiled. 

"You still need to paint," Lottie told her.  "Cri-Kee isn't going to be around forever."

"I've been artistic since I was born, I don't think it's going to be a problem." Kida reassured her.

Meanwhile, Cri-Kee, er, Sam, was busy doing all the things a good dynasty slave does.  He upgraded the replicator, he fished, he painted, he hung out with his baby sister.



He babysat while Lottie and Leighton pursued their careers.

And, as so often happens, birthdays hit just when the tub was getting ready to explode.



Lottie was looking good, and so close to finishing her requirements. 



All she needed was to top her career and finish decorating Stony Falls.

"Look," Sam told her, "we'll just sell off everything we've got and get the Falls finished.  Once you reach level ten of the cooking career, you'll get a nice bonus, we'll get the good fridge, and it's all done.  I've been going over the books and I think we can do it."

"Cri-Kee, you are the best!" Lottie told him, pulling him in for a hug.



"Sam, once she eats that ambrosia, I swear, anything you want, you've got it!" Tia told him.

"Hair would be nice," Sam said plaintively.

So on the day Lottie would reach the top of her career, with a grand total of 48 simoleons in the family funds, the family waited with baited breath.  Would a metorite hit?  Would one of her friends die?  Tia rechecked the art work in the vault, the lists of opportunities done and Leighton had his birthday in the middle of it all.

Oh, the happy, jubilant music!  The fanfare as the carpool dropped off the newest Five Star Chef!  The family danced about in glee!



Lottie was immortal!



And Sam had hair!

Thank you, Playalot!  I always picture Sam staring at Abraham Finkle and sighing.  ;)

Congrats on immortal! Summer is crazy.  :P 

Thanks, mpart!  Summer is also very short.   ;D

Woo!  Congrats, Tia!  I love your writing.  I really do!

Thanks, Wolfie!  *hugs*

Congrats on your first immortal! And congrats to Sam for his hair! Finally!

Thank you, Malley!  He earned that hair!

Chapter Five - Mother Knows Best

While Lottie, with her loving heart and charm would prove to be the soul of the dynasty, in many ways it was Kida who provided the drive.  She infected everyone with her determined spirit and, it was whispered, her need for revenge.

As soon as she hit her teen years, Kida was back at the easel.



"Kida?  Aren't you going to put the toys away first?" Lottie asked.

Kida shrugged.  "That's what Tia is for," she said.  "I've got more important things to do."

Lottie took her worries to Leighton.



"She doesn't socialize much, Leighton.  How is she ever going to find her true love?  And have a child of her own?"

"Not everyone is the same, Lottie," he reassured her.  "Kida has her own way of looking at things."

Lottie sighed.  "Maybe if we got her to do something with her hair?"

So Tia and Lottie dragged Kida away from the easel long enough to look in the mirror.



"What's wrong with the braids?"  Kida protested.  "They're neat and efficient."

"You look like Lisa Bunch." Tia stated.

"What's wrong with Lisa?" Kida asked.  "She's a hard working woman."

"But you don't look...princessy."  Lottie said.  "Try something pretty."

"Pretty!" Kida exclaimed.  "I was pretty!  And exotic!  And I spent half my time as a battery or a flashlight, and the other half locked in a box.  I"m going for smart this time!"

Lottie nodded at Tia, who took a deep breath.  "This is for your own good, Kida," Lottie said, a hint of steel in her voice.  "I am the dynasty founder and this dynasty is going to have standards."

It was a struggle, there was no doubt about that.  Kida fought with everything in her.  But Lottie prevailed.



"I hate this!" Kida fumed. 

"You'll get used to it, dear," Lottie told her, patting her on her newly coiffed hair.

"Well," Lottie said to Leighton.  "Let's see if that helps."



"I'll bet you anything you like she's back in the braids by sundown." Leighton replied.  "I think you should let her go her own way in this."
