Honestly, they played for 3 hours and only talked about each other’s traits.

That's really sweet - mine only ever seem to discuss rubbish.

Chloe looks like she should be evil, even though she actually is quite a nice sim! (Apart from disliking children of course.)

Walt has outstanding eyes, but Marla is stunning.  The dark eyes with all of her pale coloring are rather fantastic.
Chloe's great and I'm glad there's still some Leona with the family. 
The 3 hour chat about traits was rather amusing  :=)

I'm temporarily voting for Marla! She seems the more interesting possibility

@Alex , Right, rubbish and flies.
@Playalot , Dislikes Children is only a problem when she shoos them from the room and they just drop whatever they're doing and leave.
@PeregrineTook , Your're right and I think that Walt's eye would look way less amazing if he wasn't a vampire.
@I'm leaning toward Marla as well. I don't want any long-lived heirs so Walt would have to be cured of his vampirism.

Chloe: Why am I doing this. I don’t like kids.
Walt: Childhood is fleeting, and so am I.


What are you painting?
Marla: A portrait of my brother.


At least Walt has managed to discover a potion before becoming a teen.


Neither twin was given an IF doll, so they actually use the other toys, and play together.


I sent Hannah off to the park to work on her magic. Later, I got a pop up saying that she has a naughty reputation. She was kissing this man, Mario, who has apparently moved into town with his wife Flower in Her Hair.
Hannah: I’m the welcome wagon!


The new couple ( last name Finnegan, maybe) spends a lot of time at the park with their apparently twin daughters. I would feel bad, but they’re all best friends with Hannah.



Meet the two new family members – Carl, Hannah’s magician gnome and Haze, Chloe’s purple dragon that she brought home from somewhere.


I sent Christopher to the elixir store to buy some supplies and just let him stay. After all, how much trouble could he get into. Apparently a lot. I’ve never had a sim die from eating jellybeans before. I’d forgotten there was a bush behind the store. Sorry Christopher, you were only 88 and should have lived longer. The family got notice later that day that Mitch, age 90, had died. Cleo also died that day. I think she was 100.


Hannah is close to maxing her career. This show got rave reviews.


She came home to this scene. Rest in peace, Ruth Doe age 93, I’m going to miss you.


Do not go to this cemetery after midnight.

Marla's portrait of her brother was outstanding!
You may have created the most terrifying cemetery known to man or sim.

Have to agree about the terrifying cemetery - but at least Christopher's new glowing head fits in with all the imaginary friends' light bulbs.

Oh no!  Poor Christopher.

(And now I'm worried - I've sent Billy off to the elixir shop and left him there several times :(.  I'd also forgotten about the jelly bean bush, assuming I noticed it in the first place.)

And that cemetery is really disturbing.

That cemetery really is just so creepy!  Kinda fitting with a chapter filled with so many deaths.  :(

Thanks everyone. I prefer scary to pretty. Well, with cemeteries anyway.

When Walt became a teen, he added Night Owl to Genius, Athletic, and Supernatural Fan. For a vampire, those traits make way too much sense. He is very odd looking though.


Marla is now an Easily Impressed, Virtuoso, Mooch, Vegetarian with huge eyes and lips, but overall less disturbing than her brother.


Marla got a guitar for her birthday, would rather play that than anything.


She wanted to learn charisma by taking a class, a very useful skill for a musician. After class a protest was in progress. Marla interrupted everyone to chat including Olga and her father.


Now that he could, Walt went to the gym to work out. This woman seemed to want to use Walt’s machine, no other, and when she couldn’t left in a huff.


Chloe is now a lovely Young Adult. Her traits are Flirty, Friendly, Genius, Dislikes Children, and Hopeless Romantic. Somewhere along the line she wished to become a Culinary Librarian and quickly completed her lifetime wish.


She’s also working slowly on her art career. She is now the legacy painter and chef. Chloe and Walt were teens together for about 2 days and were very attracted to each other. She’s the second hand clone of generation 3. He’s generation 7. I haven’t decided if that’s gross or not yet.


I think the school may have a head lice problem.


Hannah has been working on her magician career and lifetime wish in a half-hearted manner. I forced her to do one last show.


That was enough. Wish completed, and she never wishes for anything to do with magic.


The twins went to prom and were voted king and queen. (at my school that was not a couples thing) Marla got a babysitter romantic interest, and Walt has a girlfriend. She’s either head lice girl or her twin. The last three families to move to town have had twins.


Speaking of twins, these are those little park toddlers grown up to teen. They’re pretty cute.


Hannah had an argument with the tiny plant about gardening.


The tiny plant won.

Chloe's the second hand clone of generation 3. Walt's generation 7... wouldn't that make them some sort of gazillion times removed second cousins... thinking of the 'second hand cloning' in terms of one step removed from the direct lineage. I don't know... *brain grinds to a shuddering halt*  ???

Well, as gross as it sounds, by the laws of consanguinuity, cousins can legally wed and have children... And by cousins I mean FIRST cousins! At least here in South Africa. How they calculate it is the 2 parties in question have to be 2 steps removed from the common ancestor. So an uncle and a niece can't (1 step for uncle to mother, 2 steps for niece to gran), but cousins can (2 steps from cousin A to gran, 2 steps from cousin B to gran). Its really disgusting if you actually sit down and think about it, especially when I consider I used to change my 21 year old cousins diapers! So here u would have 3 steps from 2nd clone to Gen 2 (the common ancestor) and 5 steps from Gen 7 to Gen 2... And this is now officially too much math for my brain *brain explodes*

Yeah my brief year doing an LLB put all sorts of random legalese in my head, most of it completely useless and all of it only applicable to South Africa lol one of the main reasons I switched to Life Sciences and got my BSc in something I could do worldwide if I so chose!

I think generation 2, Adabelle and Darron, are the common ancestor. They were the parents of Leona, the original genetic donor, and Hedwig who would be Walt's great-great grandmother. Walt and Chloe don't think it's gross so that's what counts, I guess. Just a heads up, I've selected Marla as heir. I don't want to make Walt forsake his vampirisim, and his athletic trait is starting to drive me nuts...I've started talking to my tiny plants.

Team Marla all the way anyhow lol so I'm super stoked you chose her! Yeah, I realised my oops with saying Gen 1 was common, and I meant to go back and edit it but now I can't remember if I did lol

I guess it isn't gross if one of them's an unrelated clone? Maybe?  ???

Out of interest, when Marla mooches food, does she only get veggie options or is the programming not that sophisticated?

@Playalot , I have to remind myself that they're just sims...but it doesn't work. I have about 20 house plants and only one qualifies as tiny. The rest are medium, large, and it's almost up to the vaulted ceiling.
@Magpie2012 , In my state, Washington, I know that first cousins can't marry if they are of child bearing age, I think anyway. My daughter's an attorney and I would ask her, but she has my medical power of attorney, and I don't want her to have me committed.
@Malley, Me too, done worse.
@Alex , So far she's only mooched money. I mean, they're barely worth 4 million. A girl's got to plan for the future.
@hazelnut , You, me, Malley....we should form a done worse therapy group.


In the wee, small hours of the morning, Walt blew out his birthday candles. His final traits are Genius, Athletic, Supernatural Fan, Night Owl, and Dramatic. His selected lifetime wish, Perfect Mind, Perfect Body, which he completed immediately.


Marla waited until the reasonable hour of 6am for her turn. Her traits are Easily Impressed, Virtuoso, Mooch, Vegetarian, and Adventurous. She selected Golden Tongue, Golden Fingers for her lifetime wish. She’s reached level 10 in guitar and level 8 in charisma so it shouldn’t take long.


Just a typical after graduation celebration here. Walt and Chloe flirt. Marla flirts with the first male non-family member she’s seen since becoming a young adult, and Mom provides the background music.


Walt invited his high school girlfriend over and broke up with her on the front lawn. Even worse, Marla mooched $35 from her.


Marla decided to become a professional musician. She stopped at the park on her way home to flirt with the first man she ran into. This one has promise.


Back at home, Chloe and Walt don’t think their relationship is gross.


Not at all.


In fact, not even one little bit.


Between bouts of nausea, Chloe completes portraits of both Walt and Marla. Time to improve your painting skill, Marla.


The next night is deceptively peaceful at the Doe house. Walt has completed his first shift in the medical profession and is celebrating by working out, of course. Marla is reading a book for a work opportunity, while Chloe studies about pregnancy. Hannah provides the background music. For a non-virtuoso sim, she sure does love that guitar.

Chloe: You know, I have a clone voucher in my pocket.

Note: Chloe and Walt will be staying until their nooboo is a toddler. Early on in the legacy, Rex and his spouse successfully tried for baby and moved out. Their child was born, but remained an infant in the family tree, but actually disappeared from the game. I don’t want that happening again.

@hazelnut , I decide that using a voucher to start the clone as a child would be a nice change.
@Playalot , Genetically fine and adorable!

Marla gave the happy couple this ping pong table as a wedding gift, and it has been a huge hit.
Hey, Walt, the sun’s up you’d better get inside.
Walt: Just one more game. I’m not smoking yet.


Fortunately, the carpool arrived and saved his skin.
Interesting dress code, hospital.


It was Marla’s turn to break her romantic interest’s little teen heart. At least she didn’t mooch from him.


Marla went off to the nectary to meet people, but didn’t get past the first man she ran into. Hey, it’s the fairy from the park. His name is Mario Fennell, and he is now Marla’s boyfriend.


Marla couldn’t stay, though. Big things were up back home.
This is John Doe. He’s green like his mother and a vampire like his father. Oh, and he’s Evil and Loves the Outdoors.


Right after giving birth, Cloe went to redeem her clone voucher, and soon little Coco Doe walked in the door. She’s Flirty, a Genius, and a Hopeless Romantic. Right after wishing to learn logic, she wished to have her first kiss. Seven days till teen, Coco, take a deep breath.


Instead she blew herself up.


Later that same night, Hannah aged up to elder conveniently right next to a mirror.


In no time at all, it was John’s turn to become a sweet-looking toddler.


John posed for one last adorable picture. He will be moving out with his parents, and I’m really terrible at convincing the family to keep in touch.


And off they go. Maybe we’ll see you at the park or library.
