The Does of Dragon Valley
« on: August 13, 2015, 10:28:35 AM »
Since Iíve completed all the dynasties, I decided why not try something a little more laid back Ė a Legacy!
Iím following Pinstarís rules, mostly. I will be allowing my heirs to wed long-lived supernaturals, but they will be cured before bringing in the next generation.
I pulled my favorite Doe from my 4x4 out of the sim bin to found this legacy.  Flip will be moving to Dragon Valley. He preceded the familyís residence there so has no DV genetics.
Flip has changed a bit. His traits are now Loves the Outdoors, Gatherer, Green Thumb, Handy, and Ambitious. These are the last traits that I will be choosing in this legacy. He wants to Become a Creature-Robot Cross Breeder.
To make things a little more interesting, I duplicated Flipís skin tone on the rainbow slider. Heís maybe even more Fliptastic.


Sorry about the darkness, but Flip doesnít own any lights. In fact, all he owns is a rocking chair and four sunflowers.


Flip bought a Quick Grow Station before buying a bed, and heís pretty excited about his decision.


Thanks to his job, his sunflowers, and his red berry beans, Flip has built a little house. It will never be huge, or terribly interesting, but itís all his. His first guest is a young woman he met in the park when she was still a teen, Sophie Dwyer. They became friends and Flip learned that Sophie is a Hopeless Romantic.
They decide to solidify their friendship with a pillow fight.

Well, of course, the next step is marriage.


Sophie, go to the mirror. I want to see more of that glorious hair. Sophieís traits are Genius, Bookworm, Hopeless Romantic, Computer Whiz, and Friendly. Wow. Her lifetime wish is the very doable the Tinkerer. Once children are produced, Sophie becomes bloodline and her accomplishments count toward the legacy score.


Sophie has been learning to paint along with logic and handiness. Sheís very pregnant and working on Flipís portrait for the legacy gallery.


Sheíll need to finish that portrait later. Something else is produced instead. How sweet, you match your motherís hair.


Each generation will have at least two children. The heir will be whoever seems most interesting and isnít mean-spirited. Children will be named after several of my long gone relatives, many who were born from 1890-1915, so the names may be old-style.
Here we have Adabelle, an Insane Virtuoso. Child two will be pressed to be more interesting than this.

Great to see another story from you! Who better to be a founder than our Flip? =D I love your idea of name choosing, can't wait for the next update.

Some day I hope to follow you into dynasty royalty...or at least make it there for the first time. 
Meantime, I'm glad we have more of your stories to enjoy!  Adabelle is a very interesting name and I loved your choice to put her is yellow as it compliments her skin tone quite nicely.  I would never have picked it myself, but seeing it, how could you not put her in yellow?  And an insane virtuoso?  She's already got my vote for heir.  Kudos.

@Nettlejuice , I'm happy to have Flip back too. It's funny but the first relative's name I used is not from a deceased relative at all but from my aunt who is 97 years old.
@PeregrineTook , You're giving me too much credit for selecting the yellow. It's her favorite color so I used it, but it turned out well. I will be listening to input on heir selection. No actual vote or anything though.

Adabelle has such a wonderful skin colour and eye colour (and I love her name as well). Green and Gold (yellow) makes me think Aussie (as does the insane trait). And that is a good thing to me. I will definitely enjoy reading your legacy.

From my own recent experiences of birthing random traited nooboos, the RTG (Random Trait Generator) seems to love insane virtuosos.

@Deklitch , Thanks! I've noticed that about the trait generator as well. The only traits I have a dislike for are Mean-Spirited and Absent-Minded. Flirty can be a problem when you have to keep multiple generations alive for an extended period, but would be fine in a legacy. I know someone who lived in Australia for just two years and came back a little insane (she picked up the accent and 30 years later still has it).

Sophie, pregnant again, is teaching Adabelle everything she can. You never know what will come in handy. They read all the toddler skill books. I have overwatch and error trap installed so Sophie reset once when she got stuck leaving Adabelle all alone at the library. They live close so Sophie literally ran back to her.


Flip is very busy with his job and garden, but always finds family time.


A tiny green boy has joined the family.


Obligatory floorboo shot.


Rex Doe is the latest family addition. He is Disciplined and Excitable and looks a lot like his mother.


Rex is also taught everything. Heís adorable and is in the running for heir.


Adabelle had her birthday and is now an Insane, Virtuoso Couch Potato. Iím liking her more and more.


Adabelle: Why am I painting? Iím missing important TV time.
Hey, youíre the one who wanted to learn painting. Besides, someone needs to paint your motherís portrait.


Rex: Is she still there? Sheís fascinating, but a little freaky.


Soon Rex had his birthday. He is now Disciplined, Excitable, and Adventurous. Not bad.


Rex wished to learn to write and seems to enjoy it well enough.


Flip seems to be surprised to see Adabelle autonomously baking a chocolate brownie. Frankly, Iím surprised too. She wasnít hungry and didnít eat it. Iíve always had to tell kids to bake.

Still Team Adabelle.  The insane child bakes brownies for no reason and then leaves them alone.  Wait, she deserts the desserts!  She's making a pun!
Both kiddos are adorable, I just like her combo of traits, how you write her thus far, and I think her face shape looks better than his (though who knows how that will work out as they age).

:D :D :D

Really enjoying this. I think I'm also Team Adabelle - what a gorgeous skin colour.

So happy to see that Flip has come out of Witness Protection to start his own life!! I'm torn between the two kids, but I'm leaning more toward Rex...but that may change as they grow up. Looking forward to more, KRae  ;D

@PeregrineTook , I have never made a brownie and left it alone. I admire Adabelle's indifference.
@Nettlejuice , Thanks, Down with cribs!
@Alex, I'm not sure how my husband and I have been married for just two weeks shy of 44 years without one single pillow fight.
@Malley , Hi! I'm glad someone's leaning toward Rex, although I'm beginning to prefer Adabelle myself for two reasons: She's awesome and my finger just keeps mistyping the letter x.


Adabelle is now a lovely teen with a very strong jaw. This hair softens it up a bit. Her traits are now Insane, Virtuoso, Couch Potato, and Loner.


Adabelle: Leave me alone. Iím painting.
Well, Iím glad youíre painting, but youíre in your formal wear.
Adabelle: Your point being?


Flip is fishing in the back yard pond. So far heís stocked it with Alley  Catfish and Angel Fish. Heís an elder.
Flip: No close ups, please.


Of course not.


Whatever you say.


Rex: I am Rexius Rex. Bow to my, um, Rexiness.


His Rexiness as a teen. His traits are now Disciplined, Excitable, Adventurous, and Avant Garde. He has an odd face. Many hairstyles make him look like something from Frankensteinís lab.


Adabelle has reached level seven in painting and can paint her motherís portrait. That actually is looking pretty good.
Adabelle: Thanks. Go away.


Both teens go to prom.
So now you change from your formal wear, Adabelle.
Rex is feeling overdressed in his tux. Both get babysitters for romantic interests and break up with them ASAP.


Flip has been wanting to go to France. Heís heard they have grapes there not available at the local nectary. Heís off on his trusty jet-ski to check out an island.


Flipís also heard that France has fruit not available locally.
You know, thatís someoneís yard, right?
Flip: Keep your voice down, theyíll never see me.


This is Evelyn Mullen. She lives in a house and Rex finds her fascinating.
Adabelle: Why did she follow us home? Make her leave. No! Donít give her cake!


Outside of her household, Adabelle has one friend, Darron Mithrilen. Heís a little older, but still second generation and a vampire. They share the Loner trait. Adabelle admires his ability to blend into the background.


Weíll leave you here with dueling upgrades. Cue the banjo.

So loving how you're writing Adabelle's loner trait into this.  And her (boy)friend being stuck in the wall was glorious.  I always enjoy the glitch pictures more than I should.
As soon as I saw teen Rex, I thought I might make a Frankenstein comment, then you beat me to it.  Great minds think alike, right?
Team Adabelle!

So glad to see more Fliptasticness!!!
@Deklitch you say Green and Gold reminds you of Aussies but did you know that's actually the South African Rugby Team colours, The Springboks put on the green and gold! And for that patriotic reason I am Team Adabelle! ;) well, that, and insane sims are just so much fun to read about!
