BallerinaHippo's Sharebear Legacy: My Generation (Nov 3)
« on: April 29, 2018, 11:39:54 PM »

Here we go again!  I’ve been reading all the other Sharebear stories and finally decided to join the fun.  I’ll be playing on normal lifespan with the following succession laws:

Equality: both boys and girls are eligible to be heir.
Strict Traditional: Only natural-born children are eligible to be heir and must be able to trace an unbroken bloodline back to the founder.
Exemplar:  Loves Outdoors—any eligible heir with this trait will gain the title of heir.  If a generation has no eligible children with this trait, or more than one, follow the first-born rule.
Species: Tolerant—species has no impact on a child’s eligibility to be heir.

I’ll be keeping track of points because Hilliee’s awesome spreadsheet makes it easy, but I’m mostly playing this just for fun.  I don’t have Parenthood or Jungle Adventure yet (boo!) so there are some things I can’t even do. *Edited to add* I was able to add expansions as the legacy progressed.

Also, I’ve been wanting to do a story that shows time progressing in the Sims beyond just the characters aging.  With that in mind, I’ll be trying to incorporate some changing clothing styles/technology/architecture to give the illusion of time passing.  I’m working with what the game provides me (no cc) so it will in no way be historically accurate.  Feel free to laugh or roll your eyes at my feeble attempts.  *Edited to add*  I eventually added some cc which is noted in the story.  It's still not historically accurate.  Just consider it to be sims specific and not true to real life.   ;)

Finally, many thanks to the Executive Council for bringing us the Sharebears!

Prologue

Sherilee:  You know, IC, this is my favorite time of day.
Invention Constructer:  12:36pm?
Sherilee: Yep.  Because the boss is on his lunch break, and I get to hang out with you.
P1 IC chat.jpg

IC:  There is no other inventor quite like you, Sherilee Sharebear.
Sherilee:  Oh!  That reminds me.  There’s something I want to try.
IC: Why do I not like the sound of that?
P2 clone.jpg

Sherilee:  I’ve tested this thing on rocks and plants.  I wonder if it can handle something bigger?
IC: Be careful, sweetie.
P3 clone2.jpg

Sherilee:  Oh my gosh!  It totally worked!  You look just like me!
Clone: So…who am I?
P3.5 OMG.jpg

Sherilee:  You’re me!  Except you’re not me.  We have the same DNA, like twins.  But different.
IC: What she means is—you’re her clone.
Clone:  That’s cool.  So am I your only clone?
P4 hug.jpg

Sherilee:  Yes!  I mean…no.  There are others.  Only I’ve never actually met them.  They exist in other simverses…like alternate realities.
Clone:  Alternate realities?
Sherilee:  Yeah, you know, like parallel lives or…butterflies.  See?
P5 butterfly.jpg
Clone: Butterflies?

Sound of footsteps approaching.


Sherilee:  Oh no!  My boss is back early!  I’m not supposed to be in here.
P6 boss.jpg

Boss:  Sherilee?  Is that you?  Did you collect those crystals I asked for?
P7 Hugh.jpg

Sherilee:  Look, I’ve gotta go.  It’s collection day, and I’m supposed to be outside.  *digs in personal inventory and pulls out a crumpled piece of paper*  Here, take this leaflet the Council gave me.  You can read it while you wait.  It explains all about the butterflies.  Just find some place to hide, and I’ll be back as soon as I can.
P8 Darling.jpg
Darling Walsh (in background):  Ooo…Sherilee is gonna be in trou-ble!

Clone:  This looks like a good place to hide.  I’ll just wait in here.
P9 Portal.jpg

IC:  Oh my circuits!

@BallerinaHippo
Quite honestly, I'd been secretly hoping that you would start a Sharebear legacy but was afraid to scare you away by PMing you about it, lol.
And now, here you are!
I agree with Shewolf that your introduction was inspired! Such a perfect beginning! I was cracking up throughout.
And, wow, Fate even favored you with a butterfly thought bubble!!!
Hiding inside a wormhole generator--sounds like a smart idea, hahaha!
You chose "Exemplar: Loves the Outdoors" as one of your succession laws. I'm so curious how that will work out in your legacy.

Well, I can't wait to see where you go with your story and its passing of time.

Thank you!  I hemmed and hawed and finally decided to go for it.  The butterfly thought bubble...I think it was Fate's way of saying "Just do it!"

Thanks!  The more the merrier, right?  :)

Thank you!  I hope the time progression doesn't disappoint.  It's the Sims, so it's imperfect at best, but that's part of what makes it fun.

Re: Another Sharebear Legacy: Steps One and Two (5/4/18)

Steps One and Two


There was a blinding flash of light, then nothingness.  She had no idea how long the nothingness lasted because time is something and this was nothing.
When the world finally elected to re-materialize around her, she found herself standing in a large, open field blinking in the early morning sun.  The distant sound of crashing waves and the smell of salt in the air told her there was a beach nearby.  Her thoughts struggled to catch up with her senses.
1a Light.jpg

“Well that was stupid!” was the first coherent one.

“Where am I?” was next.

“There you are!” said a voice behind her.
Intro 1.jpg

She turned to see a smartly dressed man swiftly approaching from across the field.  She instinctively slid the piece of paper she was still holding into her pocket.
1c Gerald approach.jpg

Man: (grabbing her hand and shaking it) I’m Landgraab.  Gerald Landgraab.  I’ve been waiting on you for almost an hour.  If you’d taken much longer, I might have just written my own name on the deed and called it a day.
1d Gerald shake.jpg

Woman:  I’m sorry, Mr. Landgraab.  I was…
Landgraab: (interrupting) Ah well.  It’s alright, I suppose.  It’s a nice day, at least.  Better than being cooped up in my office.
Woman: Yes, it’s a very nice day…
Landgraab: (talking over her) …nice day for business.  Yes.  Always a nice day for business.  Now if you’ll just tell me your full name, I can write it on the deed here and we’ll be all set.
1e Gerald talk2.jpg

Woman:  Oh!  Of course. (sneaks a peak at the paper in her pocket) It’s…uh…Share-bear.
Landgraab:  Shari Behr.  Got it.

Good enough, she thought to herself.  I can be Shari Behr.
1f Gerald talk4.jpg

Landgraab:  Well, here you are.  (hands her an official-looking document)    Now, my records show that you still owe $200, so we’ll deliver the Knight once we receive the balance.
Shari:  That sounds..
Landgraab: (interrupting) …fair, yes.  You know, Brindleton Bay is nice enough, but a bit too damp for my liking.  Personally, I prefer Oasis Springs.  The arid climate is excellent for the constitution.
1g Gerald talk3.jpg

Shari: (surprised to find herself in possession of bits and pieces of someone else’s memory) Oasis Springs?
       Isn’t there a Grotto in Oasis Springs where people go to catch…
Landgraab:  What?  No!  That’s a tall tale.  Nothing of the sort.  Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got a cave entrance that needs boarding up.  Not safe for children. 
Shari:  Okay.  It was nice to…
Landgraab: …meet me.  Yes, yes.  I really must get going.  Time is money!  Remember that, Ms. Behr.

Shari pulled out the pamphlet her namesake had given her.  She held it in one hand and the deed to the land she was standing on in the other.  The pamphlet was dated 2018.  The deed was dated 1818.

Well that explains a lot, she thought to herself.  But it makes no difference to me.  Might as well live my life right here, right now.
1h Shari .jpg




It’s a good thing I’m not squeamish, Shari thought as she plunged her hand into yet another squishy log. 
1i frogs beach.jpg

The pamphlet she had been given by the girl at the lab specifically mentioned collecting frogs as being an excellent source of income.  So far, this was proving to be true.

Might as well dig up this rock while I’m here, she thought.
1j Shari digs.jpg

While she was fishing, Shari received a notice that the Welcome Wagon had arrived at her lot.
1k Shari fish.jpg

By the time she got all the way back home, most of the members of the Welcome Wagon had given up and left.  But there was one nice neighbor who was still there.
1l Shari meet Evelyn.jpg

Neighbor:  Hello there!  I’m Evelyn.   It’s a pleasure to meet you!
Shari:  I’m Shari.  Thank you for the fruitcake.
Evelyn:  Oh you’re welcome!  How are you enjoying your first day?
Shari:  It’s a bit overwhelming actually. 
Evelyn:  Well, if you need anything, just give me a holler.  I live in the Bedlington Boathouse just over there with my husband and young daughter.
Shari:  Thank you, I will!
1m Shari Evelyn 2.jpg

After Evelyn left, it was back to searching for frogs.
1n frogs2.jpg

As the sun set, Shari tried her hand at fishing again.  It was peaceful, but fishing wasn’t earning her much money.
1o Evening fish.jpg

So instead, Shari stayed up all night visiting every dig site she could find.
1p up all night.jpg

In the morning, The Knight was delivered just as Mr. Landgraab had promised.
1q knight.jpg

Shari: (looking down at her list) Step one… empty lot. Done.
             Step two… earn $200 and purchase the Knight of the Octagon Table. Done.
             Step three... primary spouse. 
             Hmm…Perhaps I should find a place to take a bath first.
             On second thought, nap first, then bath.
1r bench.jpg



Note:  The first half of this update occurred in a separate save file.  The second part is the beginning of the Legacy Challenge proper.  I downloaded one family from the gallery called Nice Family from the 1800s by faithpope to be Shari’s neighbors.  They won’t be spousal candidates, just friends.

That was a great update! Loved seeing Gerald Landgraab looking all business-like! If only we had pocket watches in the Sims 4!
Your founder looks striking, even without makeup and her hair all tucked away.

Moving the clock forward with each generation is such a wonderful premise! 200 years?
Oh wait, now I'm wondering if your legacy will also venture into the future. So many possibilities!

So...Step 3 is next, eh? Can't wait for the next update!

P.S. May I use the photo below "Might as well live my life right here, right now" as your founder portrait in the Rules thread?

Sadly, neither Candy nor Yuki has shown up yet.  But I've got 10 generations to work it in somehow...

I'm glad you like Shari's look.  I felt kind of bad tucking her hair under the scarf, but it seemed to fit the time-period better.  Her formal, party, and sleep outfits do not have the scarf so we'll eventually see her red hair.  Not in this next update, but soon.

My 200 years is based on roughly 25 years between generations with the 1st and 10th generations not counting since Shari is already a young adult and the challenge ends with the birth of the 10th generation.  So 8 x 25 = 200.  Plus, it's a nice round number.  As you said, there are many possibilities!

Oh wow, great update!  Loving the different timelines ^^ Can't wait to see who the spouse will be!
Thanks!  The timeline thing is something I've been thinking about for a while.  Oddly enough, it was getting the laundry day pack that made me think it might be possible without cc.

Thank you!  I am glad you are reading.

Love Love Love!!!  Awesome idea to go back in time and move forward!  Your founder is absolutely stunning!  I will be reading...it may be sporadically, but I will be reading!
Thanks!  I appreciate your comments, and it's perfectly fine to read sporadically.  I know it's hard to keep up with all the Sharebears.  :)

Friends and Acquaintances:


When an invitation to join a gathering of the Good Timers arrived, Shari eagerly accepted.  She hoped to make some friends and maybe meet some eligible bachelors.  While the club proved useful for the former, the Good Timers were absolutely no help with the latter.
2a Shari GT.jpg

Their Rally the Troops interaction was a valuable bonus, but Shari quickly tired of the club’s limited activities.

Shari:  Remind me again what the Good Timers do, Mila?
Mila: We play pub games and have bar drinks.  That’s pretty much it.
2b GT games.jpg

The stuffy tavern made Shari feel claustrophobic so she left Windenburg and traveled to Willow Creek instead.  She walked along the water’s edge behind the downtown area in search of collectibles and friendly faces. 

The first man she met was Kent, a rather oddly dressed fellow with a dashing mustache.  He was not a circus performer or traveling salesman, as she initially presumed, but rather a stay-at-home dad. 
2c Kent.jpg
She kept looking.

Next, she had a pleasant conversation with Chi who was both childish and active.  He seemed very nice, but his age was not ideal.
2d Chi.jpg

The most promising prospect of the day was Kane, a romantic music-lover.  Shari was almost willing to overlook his imperfect shape until she learned that he hated children. 
2e Kane.jpg

The spouse hunt might not have yielded results, but Shari had better success collecting.  She earned enough money to purchase a tent, an easel, and a woodworking table.  As she watered her small garden at the end of the day, Shari gave a contented sigh and resolved to try again tomorrow.
2f garden.jpg



Evelyn:  Thanks for meeting me at Ladies Night, Shari.  I know you must be really busy.
Shari:  I am, but it’s nice to take a rest.  Thanks for inviting me.
2g Ladies night.jpg

Evelyn:  So tell me, dear, how is your search for a husband going?  Was your trip to Willow Creek successful?
Shari: Well… my first trip could not be called a success, but the second trip exceeded expectations.
Evelyn: I’m all ears.
2h Ladies night.jpg

Shari:  I took a job as a Writer’s Assistant, and they asked me to read some books before my first day so I visited the Willow Creek Archives. No sooner had I found a book and a comfortable chair than the most handsome man walked in.
2i Shari reads.jpg
Evelyn: Yes, and…?

Shari: Before I could greet the first man, another handsome fellow came up and introduced himself to me.
2j Jamar meet.jpg

Evelyn: Wait!  There were two?
Shari: Yes!  If I had only known that the library was the place to meet men, I could have saved so much time!
Evelyn: Stop stalling!  Tell me their names!  Were they both single?

Shari: Bachelor number one is Andrew.  He’s a neat, unflirty bookworm.
2k Andrew meet.jpg

Evelyn: Neat and unflirty?  Sounds like perfect husband material to me!
Shari: You don’t think I should hold out for a romantic?
Evelyn: No dearest.  Romantics can be unpredictable.  It’s better if he only has eyes for you.  What about the other one?

Shari:  Bachelor number two is Jamar.  He loves art and cats and food.
Evelyn: A glutton or a foodie?
Shari: Glutton.
2l Jamar meet.jpg

Evelyn: It could be worse.  Art-lover and cat-lover are nice.  Which man do you fancy more? Have you made a choice?
Shari: I have.  I’ve got no time to waste.
Evelyn: Do tell!
Shari: I invited unflirty Andrew to visit me.  I wanted him to see what he’d be getting into.

2m show place.jpg

Evelyn:  A wise decision.  Did he seem interested?
Shari: Yes, actually.  He saw the easel and asked if he could paint.  Turns out, his dream is to be an artist.  I asked him to move in, and he has already joined the Painter career.

2n Andrew paints.jpg

Evelyn: Oh Shari!  I’m so happy for you!  I can’t wait to meet him!  And how are things going romantically, if I may ask?  Is his unflirty trait giving you any trouble?
Shari: Did I tell you that I dug up a voodoo doll while I was out collecting?
Evelyn: Are you changing the subject?  If you don’t want to tell me, that’s okay.
Shari: I’m not changing the subject.  You see, I was curious to see if the voodoo doll was real so I tried binding it to Andrew.

Evelyn: You little gypsy!  Did it work?
Shari: Like a charm!

I really enjoyed neighbor Evelyn interrogating Shari about her love life!
What a great narrative device for sharing details with us about Shari's spouse hunt. :D
And how funny that Evelyn defines "perfect husband material" as neat and unflirty.

Lucky Shari with her Painter Extraordinaire spouse!!!
Brilliant idea with the voodoo doll! So glad things are working out so well!

Lol at the voodoo doll. Great workaround. Is Jamar going to join the group? It would be a shame to let that pretty face go to waste. Also, I really like Evelyn, we could all use an Evelyn in our lives. Good luck!
