@PeregrineTook , Anna is lovely, and Fritz is crazy about her. Unless something stunning happens, they will be carrying on the legacy.
@hazelnut , Fortunately, the bearded lady depilates on aging up.
@Playalot , The randomness is my favorite part. How some of the traits don't conflict is beyond me.
@Ausette , I love to try to figure what the heck they could be talking about.

Ray aged up to teen in the morning before school and had the rest of the day off. Ray’s traits are now Perceptive, Virtuoso, Clumsy, and Social Butterfly.


Ray got a guitar for his birthday and has been making good progress. He’s decided that he wants to be a Renaissance Sim. Better start working on that Logic, dude.


After school, Olga had her birthday and added Ambitious to Insane, Easily Impressed, and Loser. I’ve never played a Loser teen before and what it means is that she gets bullied at school. Not cute, EA.


The girl’s now have an art studio. Anna is close to completing her Visionary LTW. Olga, after homework, is allowed to do whatever she wants. I feel bad for her.


Okay, Leona what did Breandan do now?
Leona: Oh, nothing really. Sometimes I just have to slap that face.


Fritz is a young adult now. His traits are Disciplined, Grumpy, Genius, Star Quality, and Supernatural Fan.
His Lifetime Wish is Physical Perfection.


Well, he’s got Martial Arts mastered, and is coming along nicely on his Athletics.


When Anna aged up she ran off to the science facility even before changing her clothes and hair. She wanted to be able to fish and garden even in the daylight. She brought home the vampire cure and used it. Hmm… Nobody even noticed.


She finally made it to the mirror. Here she is in all her normal sim glory – a Loves the Outdoors, Grumpy, Party Animal, Vehicle Enthusiast, Hopeless Romantic.


Every night is party night at the Doe house.


Whoa, Fritz, you’ve really bulked up.


I’m not sure what Leona did to deserve this, but I’m sure it was something.
Leona: Yes, it was. And I’d do it again.


Hedwig: Becoming an elder is no party.


Leona: Now?
Soon, very soon now.

It's horrible.  I had a Legacy Sim with hates the outdoors/loner/loser/unlucky, which, come to think of it, is probably why I dislike playing with random traits.  I can't remember what his YA trait was but it hardly mattered after that lot.  His school life was one long misery fest - I seem to remember even the teachers bullied him  :'(.

Fritz and Anna look as though their genes would combine very interestingly.  In a good way :).

That's a wonderful set of traits :D A hugely talented private eye who trips over things, sings to himself and has to discuss his cases with everybody who passes by. :)

Wow. Really not cute, EA.

Wow, I've never played with a Loser teen either, that's quite sad.  :( Must say though that Anna is an amazing looking sim!

@hazelnut , At least Olga wasn't bullied by teachers, but I really don't understand why EA thought this was funny.
@Alex, When the traits pop up, I think "now what am I supposed to do with that?"
@Playalot , Mean-Spirited and Absent-Minded have always been my least favorite traits. Loser has now gone to the top of the list.
@Magpie2012 , They need to get started on those floorboos soon!

Prom was scheduled for the night before our teens’ birthday. Ray managed to find time to ask Olga to be his date.


It wasn’t that easy because he went into time out three times that day.


One night on her way home from work, Leona became an elder.


She had to give up being Queen of the Nile and instead is now the Queen of Pompadours.
The next day Leona went to the park and retired.
Okay, clone away.


I discovered that Leona managed to get a sample from Breandan somehow.
Leona: Well, I’m not using that one.
Just as the cloneboo appeared on the floor, the camera zoomed upstairs, and so did Leona.
At age 90, Breandan answered Grim’s call.


Stop chortling, Leona, and go get that baby off the cold lab floor.
This is C-Leona Doe, but we will call her Cleo.
Leona: I gotta say, kid, I’m a little disappointed that you’re not evil. Well, I guess Absent-Minded and Grumpy are sufficiently irritating. I guess you’ll have to do.


The night before triple birthday, Ray and Olga went to prom. Surprisingly, Olga wore her formal wear. They decided to go steady and were voted king and queen. I was afraid there might be a Carrie moment, but all went well.


It was a night for romance. By the light of the fire and flickering video game, Fritz and Anna became engaged.


The next day was a whirl of cake and candles. First was Cleo’s turn.
Yup, same grumpy look as Leona.


Next up, Olga. She became Shy along with Insane, Easily Impressed, Loser, and Ambitious. Her Lifetime Wish – Greener Gardens. Olga will remain a fairy. I can’t make her give up her fairy tricks.


Finally, Ray stepped to the plate. He gained Rebellious to go with Perceptive, Virtuoso, Clumsy, and Social Butterfly. He has already completed his wish to be a Renaissance Sim (Guitar, Logic, Photography) and will soon start his job in the music industry.
 

Think back many years to a child Leona going to a friend’s huge house after school. She has kept in touch with Branden Lankford all this time. She invited him over and worked her wiles on him. He didn’t stand a chance. Leona will get her chance to look good in that house.
Leona: Oh, and hubby, meet Ray and Olga, your new housemates.
Branden *overwhelmed*: Okie doke.
 
And so, Cleo was left in the competent, loving care of the remaining Does. Will she become Evil and fulfill Leona’s dreams? Only time and a roll of the dice will tell

;D

Out of interest, what was Ray doing to spend so much time in time out? The only time that's happened to one of my sims he was evil and mean-spirited and kept starting fights with his siblings, but Ray doesn't seem the type. (Or is he just hiding it well?)

Time out?  I've not yet seen that in a game.  Clearly my Sim children are far too boring and well-behaved.  I think I'll have to give them a nudge  ;).

@Alex , Ray was having a mood swing and kept getting caught while setting booby traps. He was just really not sneaky enough.
@Malley , I hate to say it, but my life got a lot easier after Breandan's passing.
@Playalot , Yup, the man's been working out.
@hazelnut , Mine are always getting time out. Even the best of them are pranksters...and not good at it.


Now that the house was more peaceful, Fritz and Anna decided to get married and start their family right away.


Soon after, Anna was feeling queasy in the mornings, in fact pretty much all day.


The family took good care of little Cleo and made sure that she felt like part of the family.


Cleo would always be loved, no matter what.


Hedwig enjoyed her elderhood. She discovered that these special goggles she’d been carrying around for a while were really a lot of fun.


She and Fritz broke space rocks together. They had a pink diamond competition going. The score so far:
Hedwig 2  Fritz 0


Then one evening during that magical time after the sun sinks behind the hills but before the lights come on, Anna went into labor out by the fishing pond.


A few hours later…

@Playalot , @hazelnut , @Alex , Triplets! I was hoping for twins. Anna had the Fertility Treatment ltr, but nothing else was done to increase chances of multiples.
@Deklitch , Unfortunately, Co-Conspirator seems to have left the building. He was in the backyard when the big move out happened, but I think Olga picked him up.

Cleo is now an Absent-Minded, Grumpy, Perfectionist. She may look like Leona but really isn’t like her except in one way. Leona’s neat trait seems to have bled over into Cleo. She autonomously makes beds, recycles papers, and empties potty chairs.


Speaking of potty chairs and their users, here is Ruth Doe. Names are given before traits are rolled, so when Grumpy and Evil came up it seemed very suitable. Now if she becomes Mean-Spirited next, she would totally suit the relative she’s named after.


Little Mitch Doe is Athletic and Eccentric. An inventor who powerlifts simbots? I really love his genetics.
His skin tone is like that of Anna’s genetic donor’s brother.


Eva Doe is a Perceptive Heavy Sleeper. I love that they look so different from each other.


Two out of three triplets agree – blue tastes best.


Cleo seems determined to become the next legacy painter, and I’m happy to let her. She’s such a good little sim and seems hardly Absent-Minded at all.


She’s become friends with all the little ones. No, really not much like Leona at all.


At age 93, Hedwig willingly goes with Grim. The family is devastated. She was everyone’s best friend and so helpful.


The triplets sleep peacefully, not understanding the terrible blow the family has been dealt.

I like the way two out of the three triplets have matching eyes and hair.  Ruth really does look evil, though.

RIP Hedwig, you shall be missed.

I still can't get over the shot of Fritz and Anna staring at their three floorboos. Their baffled expression were just amazing. All three kids are too cute.

@hazelnut , I agree, Ruth does look evil. It's something about those eyes.
@Alex , Now I'm picturing a toddler powerlifting simbots.
@Playalot , let's just say my Grandma Ruth who died at 98 was not a good person.
@Malley , Thanks! I may well have shared their expression.

Cleo soon had her teen birthday. Earlier that day the family received notification that Leona had died. In tribute to her creator and in keeping with her name, Cleo became the Queen of the Nile.  Her traits are now Absent-Minded, Grumpy, Perfectionist, and Eccentric. As a clone who will not be joining the family bloodline, none of Cleo’s accomplishments will count toward the legacy score.


In a fit of perhaps temporary insanity, Fritz placed Leona’s tombstone in the backyard. I hope she enjoys her rocking chair.


A few nights later, Leona made her first appearance and came all the way into the house to use the old rocker. She left before anyone saw her.


During that time, the triplets had their birthday. Ruth’s traits are now Grumpy, Evil, and Good Sense of Humor.


Mitch is Athletic, Eccentric, and Hates the Outdoors. No long, leisurely jogs for you.


Eva is a Heavy Sleeper, Perceptive, and Evil. Oh good. Two of them.


Mitch has taken up inventing and made it to level 7 without a single butt fire. How is that even possible?


He’s also the only one with a love for video games. I’m not sure if this game is rubbish or perhaps just his mother’s dancing.


Ruth and Eva both wished to become best friends. What better way to bond than devising radioactive plots over a nice game of chess.


They also take turns scaring each other.
Ruth: I wish to see Eva’s ghost.
Eva: Well, I wish to see Ruth’s ghost.
No! You may not kill your sister.
Somehow, they’re still best friends.


Anna went to a party where she berated the host’s ignorance and got slapped silly for it.


She also met the O’Reillys, Fiona and her brother whose name is probably some version of Brandon as my game really seems to like those. They are amazingly well preserved even for a vampire and fairy. The game is in the 5th generation now.


A very determined looking Queen of the Nile went to prom alone and became Queen of Prom. The other girl may have escaped police custody in order to attend.


Cleo is developing a new skill.

Presumably that means she'll spend her life plotting people's downfall and then laughing at them.  Nice  :-\.

At least hating the outdoors won't stop Mitch from powerlifting Simbots :P
