Jumping on board Team Leona.  I think her evil grump appearance and attitude are adorable.  Lock sister in the basement to paint her fingers to he bone?  That's an heir if I've ever heard one!
Again, well-written and quite enjoyable.

@Malley, Okay, one for Hedwig. Thanks for trying to keep my life simple.
@Alex , My sims are usually so nice that Leona is like a grumpy breath of fresh air.
@Magpie2012 , Another for Hedwig. At this point I could go either direction.
@PeregrineTook , Glad to see someone appreciate Leona. If Leona is heir, Hedwig may have to plan a prison break.

This is just a quick post called “Why I Love Adabelle”.
She decided all on her own to learn martial arts wearing her swim wear of course. She also wears it to bed. Not recommended for spinal health.


Formal wear is for breaking boards.


And when it’s time to show off a new belt, by all means, show off the belt on your everyday wear.


But mostly I love Adeabelle because this is her reaction to viewing her own diploma.

Hedwig became a child and was ready to face the world…or not. She gained the Shy trait to go along with Excitable and Disciplined.


Well, this is obviously not the best of all possible worlds. On Hedwig’s birthday, at age 90, Sophie went to a party and died there. She sure upset a lot of people, including me. Rest in peace, Sophie, you were a calming influence on your family.


After overhearing Leona’s plan for her, Hedwig decided becoming friends would be a good idea. Bonding over the blocks table, they had quite the conversation about school. I guess Leona wanted to be prepared.


Even though she was tired, Hedwig gave Leona her bedtime (well, floor time) bottle. They are now best friends. We’ll see how long that lasts. The next day is Leona’s birthday.


Leona is now a Kleptomaniac as well as Evil and Grumpy. So far she’s brought a mirror home from somewhere.


Her first wish is to learn the logic skill. Okay, sit at the chess table….and done. See, I told you that pegbox was a good idea. She then wished to buy a chemistry table and then to discover a potion.
Well, that went well.
Leona: *grumbles* I’m going to sue that chemistry table company for big simoleons.


Leona: I tell you that company won’t know what hit it. We’ll have a pile of money.
Hedwig: *just keep your head down and play with the blocks*


Hedwig wished to learn painting and later wished to learn writing. The toddler books had been read to her so she’s made significant progress, and expressed a desire to be an Illustrious Author. *click*
She will enter her teen years tomorrow at level 6 in both skills.

Evil, Grumpy and a Klepto - Leona must be lovely to live with.

Team Leona!  She has managed to become even cooler!!  I will say, I enjoyed how shy Hedwig's only "spoken" part was to think about keeping her head down and looking at the bock table.  You certainly don't want the sibling you shackle to an easel in the basement to be noisy.  That's when people start investigating.

Ooh, I can't pick a favourite - Hedwig's so sweet and cute (love the skin/hair combo) but Leona looks pretty interesting too! I'm looking forward to seeing them as adults :)

@Alex , Leona hasn't been too bad at home, but everywhere else she's alienating people.
@PeregrineTook , Hmm...you seem awfully adept at this evil thing.
@Playalot , I'm a softy too. Evil sims are fun until they start upsetting their own nooboos. Leona may have to go.
@Ausette , I prefer Hedwig's coloring too and would like to keep that hair in the family. She's named after my favorite grandmother who passed back in 1972.
@Malley, I've been playing their teen years and will try to post tomorrow. Wait til you see their new traits.

Hedwig became a teen and added Nurturing to Excitable, Disciplined, and Shy. She’s seems to be the polar opposite of her sister.


It was a big day for Darron as well. He reached level 10 in his fortunetelling career completing his lifetime wish. He then quit so that blue aura he had developed wouldn’t alienate his family. He’s now a professional alchemist. To top off the day, he had his elder birthday and developed an immediate rocking chair addiction.


Leona went home after school with one of her classmates, Brandon, and discovered he was rich and lived in an enormous house.


That makes him friend material. *splash*


Leona: Hey, Friend, nice house. I would look good in it.
Subtle as ever, I see.
Leona: What has subtle ever gotten me?
Well, nothing, as you’ve never tried it.


Leona had her teen birthday and decided to go with a rather unique makeover.


And what trait did she add to Evil, Grumpy, and Kleptomaniac? Neurotic, of course!


Leona became a teen in time to go to prom along with Hedwig. She got in three fights – only three? Hedwig was voted prom queen and got a babysitter romantic interest.


Sorry, Hedwig, you need to break up with him. It’s way too soon to be getting involved with babysitters.
Hedwig: Okay, but I hate to hurt his feelings. He’s my only best friend, other than Leona, at school.
Don’t worry, you’re very sweet and he will forgive you. There see, he’s unhappy but still you’re besties.


Hedwig has taken up martial arts in her spare time and is making rapid progress.

Adabelle, it’s not fair kicking your opponent with those heels.
Adabelle: Are you kidding? Do you know how hard these things are to balance in? Besides, Hedwig always wins.


Leona relaxes with the waterslide and gives it her full attention.


She’s also a frequent after school visitor at Brandon’s house. He’s still a child, but she follows his sister, um…Blue Sweatshirt Girl, home. There’s lots of kids in the house from toddlers to teens. I’m not sure what Leona is thinking of stealing here. Possibly their Merman father?


Leona did bring this red dragon home from somewhere and has named him Co-conspirator.


The house is mostly peaceful. Hedwig works on her Illustrious Author LTW and Leona reads recipe books. She wants to be a Culinary Librarian. I guess that comes from watching too much Cookin’ Cable.


The night before Hedwig’s birthday, Leona gives her an early birthday present.

Better be careful, if she wasn’t so sweet, she could kick the poo out of you.

At least Culinary Librarian is a great lifetime wish. So easy with all the expansion packs!

Non-subtle Leona has become the Pharoah.  Yep.  There's the obvious heir right there!  Loved the whole I'd look good in your house bit.  I may gravitate towards the amusingly evil Sims, but you're the one who's writing her so well ;=)

Just read the original Does.  How did I manage to miss a whole KRae dynasty  :o?  It was good to see Flip back again, if only for a short time.

Quote
Rex: Ah, tiny plant, I will critique you once again. Still tiny.

For some reason, that line made me laugh out loud and get stared at by my husband.  It’s all right: he already knows I’m mad  ;).

Quote
Adabelle was soon screaming about recipes. Whatever helps.

Indeed  :P.


Not at all sure I'd want an evil Sim around with a fire-breathing pet  :P.

I was visiting my daughter a while back and we watched a U Tube playalong by Markiplier where he carried a "pet" box around with him that he called Tiny Box Tim. The activity around the tiny plant made me think of that.

I agree. Heels are certainly not a good thing to wear when practicing martial arts. I could barely walk over the mats with them  :o (instructors and volunteers dressed up for tournaments and special events, thus the heels).

Woah! What on earth was Leona thinking? Only 3 fights at the prom... what a wasted opportunity!  ;)

@Ausette , Yes, Culinary Librarian can be completed at about level 5 or 6 in cooking, I think.
@PeregrineTook , If she's not heir, I'll still probably keep her around. Father's don't need to move in so that leaves open some interesting possibilities.
@hazelnut , It's easy to miss my dynasties as I just learned to add links to my signature. I should probably add this one.
@Malley , I don't think I've worn heels in at least 20 years. Dress flats and dress flip flops for me!
@Playalot , Well, there's a limited number of teens in town and it's only so much fun to fight with babysitters.



Now that she is a young adult, Hedwig’s traits are Excitable, Disciplined , Shy, Nurturing, and Socially Awkward.


Hedwig graduated Valedictorian, but didn’t receive any special awards. There’s not one for Most Likely to Sit Alone and Not Talk to Anyone.


Darron ran into his fairy friend, Breandon O’Shea, at the library. He called Hedwig over to meet him.
So far we know that Breandon is a Charismatic and Ambitious young adult. And that he and Hedwig really like each other.


After kissing Breandon for the first time, Hedwig went home and painted this.


With her very next painting, Hedwig completed her Lifetime Wish.


Leona is still a teen, but has already completed her Lifetime Wish and maxed both cooking and logic. She and Co-conspirator have time for a little crime spree.


No, Adabelle, you’re an elder now, but you still look lovely. No need to choke yourself.


The Queen of the Nile has become a young adult. Her final traits are Evil, Grumpy, Kleptomaniac, Neurotic, and Neat. Neurotic and Neat actually work quite well together.


Leona goes spouse hunting. Her first stop is the local nectary where Liam Eames, an original townie vampire works.
Things started out well.


But quickly devolved into shouting, name calling, and threats to expose his weaknesses to the world.


Leona’s next stop is her friend, the vampire Quinn Flanagan’s house. As a teen Leona had met Quinn at one of the many parties Darron was invited to. They became friends immediately, which is somewhat worrisome. Okay, instant attraction….


That went much better. Leona has a boyfriend….well, I’m not so sure about the boy part as Quinn became an elder later that day.


So now we have to decide who will be the heir.
Both have completed their Lifetime Wish, have had their portrait painted, and earned more than 100K LTH points.  Hedwig’s boyfriend is younger, but who knows what will happen when he forsakes the Fae.
I don’t care too much about earning legacy points, so as long as the spouse is around long enough to make babies, age doesn’t matter. Both women have interesting genetics as do their male friends.
Hedwig is a level 5 writer and Leona is unemployed and isn’t popping any get a job wishes. Whoever is chosen, I will keep both around at least for a while, maybe having Leona learn science and start cloning.
Preferences?

I've thought about it, and I'm having so much fun playing Leona, Diabolical Cloner, that she will have children the unnatural way while Hedwig becomes the heir. Both will be staying, at least for a long while.
