Introduction

A familiar lot . . . . a familiar land . . . . a familiar sim, face down in the snow.

01 - Intro Face in the Snow.jpg

MJ:  Hello-o!  Good morning!  Time to wake up!
02 - Intro - Wake Up.jpg

Sim in the Snow:    What??     Where am I???        WHO am I!?!?!?       WHAT HAPPENED??!!
03 - What Where am I What happened.jpg

MJ:  Oh hey there!  Good morning!  Donít worry, everythingís fine.  Better than fine, actually.  Everythingís Fabulous!  Youíre Shae Berra, and as for where you are, well . . . youíre HOME!  This huge lot with this fabulous view - it's all yours!
04 - Intro Fabulous view.jpg

Shae:  Whatís the catch?  And who are you?
MJ:  There is no catch, and Iím MJ, your Watcher.
Shae:  Watcher?  Oh wait, itís coming back to me now.  Iím a Sharebear . . . but we changed my name.
MJ:  Yes, exactly.  Itís an anagram.  Remember we were having margaritas and thinking of names, and you said you liked anagrams so we came up with a bunch of possibilities. 
Shae (grinning):  I remember laughing so hard at Bash Areer that I nearly fell out of my chair. If I was a guy I would have totally picked that.
MJ: Yep, thatís what closed the gender question.
Shae:  But you didnít tell me Iíd be freezing my rear off in a lot with no house and six tons of snow!
05 - freeze my butt off.jpg

MJ:  Oh, don't worry!  You donít actually have to sleep here until thereís appropriate accommodations.  Remember, we talked about how youíre going to get started.  Your first aspiration is Leader of the Pack, so youíll meet people really quickly.  Join a club, have a Good Time, and before you know it, youíll be Always Welcome in any home. 
Shae:  Wasnít there something about a Knight in Shining Armor?
MJ:  Yes, youíll need to buy that Ė itís a thing not a he
Shae:  Oh now you tell me.
06 - not a he.jpg

MJ:  And you need a couple hundred dollars more to afford it.
Shae:  How am I supposed to come up with a couple hundred dollars?
MJ:  Donít worry!  Go to a club outing.  Use your phone.  Take some pictures.  Sell them on the internet.  Youíll be fine.  And Iíll be dropping in to check on you.
Shea:  Yeah, speaking of dropping . . . you didnít actually bring me here . . . you literally dropped me here, didnít you? 
07 - Dropped me here.jpg

MJ:  Umm . . . . yeah . . . . well . . . just a little.  Sorry about that.
Shae:  A little!?  I was face-down . . .  butt-up . . .  in the snow!  That is not just a little!  Have you ever even done this before?
MJ:  Well . . .  not exactly.  (Speaking quickly) I mean, Iíve been a watcher before, for challenges, but not for a legacy.  I did a dynasty once, but to be completely honest, that was in the third simiverse, not the fourth, so it was all much less emotional.  It was this alien domination thing.  But donít worry!  I know we can do this!
Shae:  It sounds like Iím going to be doing it and youíre going to be watching it.
MJ:  And guiding . . .  helping . . . Iíve learned a lot from the challenges.  Youíll see.
Shae: Really?  Tell me about these challenges.
MJ:  Well, theyíre usually pretty short in duration, and they are pretty specific about what the sims have to do, and so we Watchers have to make the sims do the thing, whatever it is, over and over, and get them to do it faster and better than the sims of the other Watchers.
Shae:  So . . . theyíre Watcher competitions . . . not really about us sims.  And theyíre short, so youíre pretty much the slave-drivers and we're pretty much the slaves.
08 - Slave Driver.jpg

MJ:  See, thatís why I signed up for this.  When I joined the Third Simiverse, in the beginning, it was just me and my sims.  And I loved them.  I truly did.  I remember my first family . . . I can still see them in my mind.  Her name was Diana and his name was Adam.  She was a chef and he was a spy.  Their son grew up to be a great astronaut and their daughter played the most beautiful music.  I watched over them and their kids and their grandkids and their great-grandkids.  And I loved them so much.  I couldnít even let them die.  I moved them out so the family could continue, but they didnít age after they moved out, and they always came to visit.  And then I found the challenges and I started playing them too.  And through it all, I really loved all my sims. 
09 - Loved my sims.jpg

But then I moved to the Fourth Simiverse, and there was so much new to learn, and I started playing challenges right off the bat.  But this isnít actually my day job, and I was also raising my family so I didnít have a lot of time.  Pretty much all my sim-time was spent playing challenges.  I played a lot of them.  All the Watchers in the challenges share tips and strategies, because itís really a big friendly competition, so Iíve learned quite a lot.  Then one night I came across a sim-story written by a great Watcher.  I've read some of her stories before, a long time ago.  So I started reading this one; it was such a lovely story.  She kept talking about Sharebears in her story, so I did some research, and I learned that there are several Watchers in several different dimensions watching over and guiding Sharebear legacies.  I read all their stories.  Their Sharebears are amazing, and the Watchers really love them and they tell their stories to other Watchers.  The Watchers love ALL the Sharebears, not just their own.  I realized how much Iíve lost by focusing only on challenges.  And I knew this was the next thing for me . . . watching over an amazing family of Sharebears and really loving them through generation after generation, racking up points together.
10 - MJ Dreamy.jpg

Shae:  Uh-huh.  So itís about the points?
MJ:  No, no, of course not.  I mean, there are points, and we do want to get some.  But we donít have to get them all.  We just need to get most of them . . . or . . . . some of them.  But most important is that we have fun.
Shae:  Right.  Ok, Iím still in, but just know that while youíre watching me, Iíll be watching you. 
MJ:  No problem!  Don't worry!  Now Iím going to give you some time to get settled in.  You donít need to think about points or anything like that right now.  Just meet some people and have some Good Times.  Earn a little money and get your Knight.  Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for a suitable partner. 
Shae:  A suitable partner?  Oh thatís romantic.  Hey, what is that?
11 - What is that.jpg

MJ: What?
12 - MJ What.jpg

Shae:  Oh!!  Itís what I think of your ďsuitable partnerĒ concept.
13 - What I think of a suitable partner.jpg

Shae:  I will NOT be marrying a ďsuitable partnerĒ Ė Iíll be marrying the man of my dreams, thank you very much.
MJ:  Thatís perfect!  After all, youíll be wanting to make adorable little nooboo heirs, and thereís always the secondary spouse Ė lots of room in the house for sims to help with goals!
Shae:  Itís not about the goals!
MJ:  Now wait a minute Shae, when we agreed to do this together, we agreed that we would focus on fun, family, AND goals.  Weíre a team, and we need to be on the same page.
Shae:  Okay, okay.  I want to have fun and I want to raise a family.  But I do also want to meet some goals and get some points.  And I also do realize that you might know more about this than me, so I will listen to you.  I might not do everything you want, but I will listen.  But as for the spouse-choosing - that is all me.  You can give your opinion, and I even want you to, but I make the final choice.
MJ:  Fair enough.  Hey, whatís that?
14 - MJ whats that.jpg

Shae:  Forget it.
15 - Forget it.jpg

MJ:  You're going to be amazing!

Welcome to the Sharebear metaverse! ;D
Yay! You're are the first to do the post-Seasons extreme start from the winter season!
I very much enjoyed your introduction! It's been so delightful seeing how different simmers play their legacies under slightly similar conditions.

Warmest wishes to you both, Shae Berra and MJ.
(I was initially a bit excited that a certain Michael J might appear as the watcher, lol...)
May you thoroughly enjoy your first Sims4 legacy challenge!

P.S. I've added your intro's 6th image of Shae Berra to the Rules: The Sharebear Legacy thread.
If you prefer a different image, would you pls PM me its link? Thanks!

Thank you all!  I had to exert some discipline on myself and catch up the story before I played too far ahead, so I have another update coming up today.

Thank you!  I'm loving seasons - I thought starting in Winter would be difficult, but it really wasn't.  The scenes are beautiful, and, of course, it's always hot in Selvadorado! 

What I like best about the challenges is that we all do them at the same time and then share our ideas, strategies, and difficulties.  I love that you, @FrancescaFiori, and @PeregrineTook have applied a similar concept to a legacy.  It's so much fun reading everyone's stories.

I think you picked the best picture so far, but I'm sure I have some better ones coming up, so maybe we can replace it after the next update.

Generation 1.  Shae Berra

1.01 Let the Good Timers Roll

Shae:  You know, Bjorn, Iím cheerful and creative, and youíre a gloomy slob.  Donít you think it makes more sense for me to lead The Good Timers?
01 - I should be the leader.jpg

Bjorn:  Gee, Shae, yeah, I guess so.  You do seem happier than me, and youíre certainly nicer to look at, so, yeah, you should probably be in charge.
02 - You should be the leader.jpg

Shae:  This Rally the Troops is really going to come in handy.  Itís good of you to show me, Bjorn!
03 - Rally the Troops.jpg

Jacques:  Shae, come over here and help me rack up some club points!
Shae:  Points?  Okay, yeah, why not?  How hard can it be?               
04 - Llama game.jpg

Jacques:  Hahaha!  ĎBout that hard I reckon!
Bjorn:  How about some foosball Shae?  Iíll try not to beat you too bad.
05 - foosball.jpg

Moira:  So, Shae, what kind of work do you do?
Shae:  Oh, I donít have a job yet.  Iíll get one, but for now Iím living off the profits of my photographs.  I sell them on the internet. 
Moira:  Really?  Can you make a living that way? 
Shae:  Well Iím just starting out, but business has been great so far.  LovesTheOutdoors42 purchased my landscapes, and SmoothBlackmailer bought all the pics I had with people in them!
06 - Landscapes.jpg
07 - My Selfies 2.jpg
08 - My Selfies 4.jpg

Mila:  I heard you bought Houndís Head over in Brindleton Bay.  Thatís a pretty big place for one person.  You planning on settling down there for the long haul?
Shae:  Oh yes.  I have big plans and a lot to do.  As of today, Houndís Head is officially renamed the Shae Berra Legacy Chateau.
Mila:  Shae Berra Legacy . . . ohhhhhh, youíre a Sharebear!  I knew you looked familiar!  So youíre starting a new legacy.  No wonder you came in and took over The Good Timers so fast.  Are you going to rename that too? 
Shae:  Maybe in time.  Iím going to expand our activities, thatís for sure!  For now Iím adding winter activities, so letís head over to my place and have some good cold fun.  Itís getting a little too close for comfort in here anyway!
09 - Too close for comfort.jpg

Shae:  We can rack up some more club points playing in the snow.
Back at Houndís Head Shae Berra Legacy Chateau
Jacques:  Great lot Shae!  Snowball fight!
10 - Snowball fight.jpg

Shae:  Not really what I had in mind, you feisty old coot.  I was thinking snow angels.
11 - Snow Angels.jpg

Shae:  But if you insist!
12 - If you insist.jpg

Shae:  This has been fun, but Iím freezing!  I bought that darned Knight.  Now Iím taking the rest of my picture profits and heading somewhere warm!

Generation 1.  Shae Berra

1.02  Bungle in the Jungle

Shae (to herself):  Wow, I might have bitten off a little too much here.  I must be crazy to head in there at night.
01 - Jungle Barrier.jpg

MJ:  Nah!  You can do it.  I have faith in you.
Shae:  Watcher!  Youíre here!  (Looking around)  Youíre . . . . where . . . . exactly?
MJ:  Iím not really there.  Not physically.  Iím just in your head.
Shae:  In my head?!?
MJ:  Donít worry.  Itís perfectly safe and you arenít going crazy.  Itís an inter-dimensional thing.  Watchers are telepathically connected to their sims.  So I can talk to you and you can hear me, even though Iím not really there.
Shae:  So do you hear and see every single thing I do?
MJ:  Well, I could, but I donít.  I do with my challenge sims, but Iím giving you more freedom.  Iíll always let you know when Iím here, so you donít have to worry that Iím spying on you.  But that also means youíll have to call me if you need me, because I wonít be watching you every minute. Now you need to get busy on those briars.  Itís only getting darker.
Shae:  Ok, here goes nothing.
02 - Chopping through.jpg

Shae:  ACK!!  Iím not squeamish but this is one huge spider!  Take that, Bug!  Hmmmmph . . . . Guess I showed him!
03 - Spider.jpg

Shae:  The scenery here is amazing!  These new photos will bring a pretty penny on the internet!
04 - Night Sky.jpg

05 - Waterfall.jpg

06 - Alligator.jpg

Shae:  I am so glad no oneís around to see, or smell, me now!  What a stench!
07 - Out of the bush.jpg

Shae:  Okay maybe it was worth it in exchange for discovering this little Wonderful in a Bottle!
08 - Bottled waterfall.jpg

Shae:  This would be so much easier if I had a tool belt.
MJ:  No, this would be so much easier if you had someone in a tool belt.
09 - Wish I had a toolbelt.jpg

Shae:  Yeah, Iím working on that.
MJ:  Really?  Youíve met someone?
Shae:  Actually, Iíve met several someones.  I just havenít decided yet where I want to spend my time.
MJ:  Oh . . . . ummmm . . . . you want any help with that?
Shae:  Not yet.  Iíll let you know.
MJ:  Darn!
Shae:  Hmmm . . . the answer to this trap has to be here!
10 - Analyze.jpg

Shae:  Yeah, that wasnít it!  I am so outaí here!
11 - Not it.jpg

Later, back at the villa.
Shae:  Oh, Father Winter!  You caught me napping.  Oh wow!  A $4000 All-in-one-PC!  Thank you!
12 - Gift Received.jpg

Shae:  And I have a little something for you!
Father Winter:  Oh thank you Shae!  You know, with all this gift-gifting I do, hardly anyone ever gives me anything back.  Some cookies maybe . . . I get way more of those than I need!  Now whatís in here?  Oh . . .  oh my . . . . bone dust . . . . well, um, itís the thought that counts, right? 
13 - Gift Given.jpg

Father Winter: You donít happen to have any cookies in the kitchen do you?

Shae is doing great!  I love the contrast between the snow at home and the warmth of the jungle.  And Father Winter was quite generous!  A $4000 gift is a nice boost for a founding sim. 

Can't wait to see what kind of hunk in a tool belt Shae brings home.  ;)

Wow, that's some generous Winterfest Spirit, there! Hopefully, the jungle adventuring will help her get into a proper legacyboxtm with real walls and everything. (Also, I love that shot of the... I don't quite think it's got any particularly clear markers re:crocodile vs alligator, but maybe simiverse is different.)

Woot!  Another Sharebear legacy!!  Shae is so thoughtful!  Giving a gift to Father Winter.  That's fantastic  ;=)
Looking forward to seeing who she chooses as her Mr. Right.  Assuming it won't be Father Winter...

Generation 1.  Shae Berra

1.03 Beautiful City

MJ:  Whatís with all the snowpersons?
Shae:  Oh, we had a Good Timers club event Ė we chatted about the club and played in the snow all day.  We racked up a lot club points and I made good progress on my aspiration.
01 - Snowpersons 1 and 2.jpg
02 - Snowpersons 3 and 4.jpg

Shae:  Now Iím headed to the city.  We have a full club now and Iíve called a gathering at the gym there.  The clubís going to work out while I take some more pictures to sell and then give a couple of speeches to build my charisma.  I hear the city is beautiful in the winter and I think I can get some pictures that will sell.  Then Iíll work out too.  One way or another, Iím finishing Leader of the Pack today!
MJ:  Great work!  Iím impressed Ė youíre really going after this aspiration! 
Shae:  Yep.  And when this oneís done, Iím doing Friend of the World, which will be easy with all the people Iím meeting.  And then Iím going for Serial Romantic.
MJ:  Serial Romantic?  Are you meeting a lot of available men?
Shae:  Oh, you know what they say . . . . so many men . . . so little time  . . . to spend talking about them.  And no time now Ė sorry!  Gottaí go!
MJ:  Wait!!
Shae:  Bye!!

A few minutes later, in the city. . .

Shae:  Wow!  The city really is beautiful in the winter!  Cold, but beautiful.

These pics are sure to sell!

05 - Speech did not inspire.JPG

Shae: So Iím not inspiring, huh!  Iíll show you!  Come over here and say that! Iíll give you something to be inspired about!

Bella:  Hi Shae!  You okay?

Shae:  Hey, Bella.  Yeah, just letting off some steam.  Whatís up?
Bella:  Did you hear we arenít allowed to leave?
Shae:  No, whatís going on?
Bella:  Iím headed downstairs.  Come along and Iíll tell you about it.  Apparently weíre all on lockdown because some nutcase vampire is breaking in. 
Shae:  Seriously??  Breaking in?!?  At the gym? 
Bella:  Yep, and weíre stuck here because of it.  This is a 24-hour gym.  The doors arenít ever locked, so how does that ďbreaking inĒ even work? 
07 - Bella at the Gym.jpg

Shae:  I donít know, but since you have a few minutes, letís get a quick pic!
Bella:  Sure, Shae, but hey, you get in it too.   Speaking of pictures, you'll never believe what happened!  Some weird internet dude emailed Morty.  Sent him a bunch of pictures of womenís bodies that were . . . well . . . shall we just say, not as shapely as mine, but they all had my face photo-shopped onto them. 
Shae (nervously):  Ummm . . . gee, Bella, I wonder how some internet weirdo got your picture.
Bella:  I know, right?  The guy said if Morty didnít write him a Book of Life heíd post them all over the internet with my name on them.  Morty freaked.  He canít even write the Book of Life yet!
Shae:  Thatís awful, Bella.  Say cheese!
08 - Bella and the Bear.jpg

Shae:  Oh, Bella!  Look!  That must be the vampire thatís breaking in!
09 - Caleb at the gym.jpg

Bella:  What?  Oh good grief Ė Thatís Caleb Vatore!
Shae (whispering):  Do you think he knows he looks ridiculous?
Bella (also whispering):  I have no idea.  Those Vatores are a weird pair.  Brother and sister.  Both vampires. 
Shae (still whispering):  What is he doing?
Bella (very quietly):  I think heís stalking someone.  Someone in the menís locker room apparently.
Shae:  Iím going to look.  I donít care if it is the menís locker room.  Heís sneaking up on someone.  I think heís going to attack.
Bella:  Be careful!
Shae (peeking in the menís locker room):  Oh good grief!

Generation 1.  Shae Berra

1.04 So Many Men, So Little Time

Shae:  Hey Watcher!  Yoo-hoo!  Where are you?
MJ:  You donít have to yell.  I can hear you.
Shae:  Iím ready to talk about the men now.
MJ:  Okay!  Glad to hear it!
Shae:  Yeah, but I want to do it in person.  Meet me at the Old Quarter Inn in 5 minutes.

Five minutes later

MJ:  You said youíre ready to talk about ďthe menĒ Ė how many are there exactly?
How Many.jpg

Shae:  Thirteen, but oneís already an adult, so Iím cutting it back to twelve.
MJ:  Twelve!?!  Oh my!  Thatís a lot!
Shae:  Yep, an even dozen. 
MJ:  Okay, Spill!
Spill.jpg

Shae:  Okay, so like I said, Iím ruling out one, thatís Larry, because heís already an Adult and all the others are younger like me.  Also, before you ask, theyíre all single.  Most are unemployed, so thatís kind of a bummer, but we can fix that.
MJ:  I hope you have pictures!
Shae:  Are you kidding?!  Of course I do.  This is Advik.  Heís a jealous, hot-headed bookworm.  Not the best traits, I know, but once I complete Serial Romantic the jealousy thing will be managed.  And if his hot-headedness gets in the way, you can just lock him in a room for me until he gets over it.
Advik.jpg

MJ:  Sounds like youíve been doing some homework about traits and aspirations.
Shae:  You betchaí.  Hey, picking the right guy is the most important part of this whole thing!  So next is Frankie.  Heís also hot-headed, and heís an Outgoing Foodie.  I donít really know him yet, and I didnít get to see his eyes, so, well, I donít know.  But I think heís worth a second look.
Frankie.jpg

Shae:  Isaac.  Heís a Squeamish, Active, Dance Machine.  Not crazy about the squeamish part Ė I want to go back to Selvadorado, with my husband, and Iím not sure heíd do so well there.  But the Active, Dance Machine traits are good, and I think dating him will be fun.  Also, heís a Level 10 in the Detective career, so worst case, maybe heís a Secondary Spouse.
Isaac.jpg

MJ:  Iím impressed.  Youíre really taking this seriously.
Shae:  Told you I could do it.  Next we have Joshua.  Heís a Creative, Outgoing, Genius, and, as you can see, a redhead.  Obviously, Iím not insisting on red hair, but it is a plus.  And speaking of a plus, Joshua has a plus one.  I havenít met his child yet, but heís a Stay-Home Dad so clearly there is one.  You can tell from the picture that I met him in Selvadorado, and we had one date there. 
Joshua.jpg

MJ:  Really? A date already!  Tell me about it.
Shae:  Later.  I want to tell you about all of them first.  But I will say this . . . it was HOT, HOT, HOT in Selvadorado that day!!
MJ:  Mmmmmm . . . . I just bet it was!
Shae: As you can see in the next picture, Kengo is also a redhead.  Heís another hot-headed one, and heís unemployed but ambitious.  Heís a pretty cute bro.  I met him at the gym.
Kengo.jpg

Shae:  And Mateo.   I met him briefly right after I got to Selvadorado, but didnít have a chance to get a pic.  When I saw him again, I was out with Joshua, so I didnít really get to chat with him.  But I think heís pretty cute.  Heís a Geek, a Glutton, and a Cat Lover.  Iím not crazy about those traits, but I think heís pretty cute.
Mateo.jpg

Shae:  And then thereís Matias.  Matias was the first person I met in Selvadorado.  Heís the mixologist at the local cantina.  And he is HOT in ALL CAPS!  Heís a materialistic, art loving snob. 
Matias.jpg

Shae:  His traits might not be the best, but his hotness sort of melts that away.  Here, let me show you another picture of him.  You can see his eyes in this one.
Matias 2.jpg

MJ:  So have you been on a date with him yet? 
Shae:  Not yet, but Iím sure going to!  This next guy is Patricio.  Iíve only barely met him, but I know that heís a Squeamish, Self-Assured, Loner.
Patricio.jpg

Shae:  I donít know why there are so many Squeamish men in Selvadorado.  Or maybe itís just that all the squeamish men in Selvadorado are still single.  Maybe the Selvadoradan women donít like their men to be squeamish.  I donít know, but Rodrigo is Squeamish too.  Heís also Unflirty and Active.  Iíll go out with him, but Iím going to need a man who flirts, so he could really only be a Secondary Spouse.
Rodrigo.jpg

Shae:  Samuelís traits are Geek, Bro, and Cat Lover.  I think heíd be hotter with different hair, but heís a really nice guy.  I like him. 
Samuel.jpg

Shae:  Sawyer was actually a teen when I met him.  He was a Vegetarian Bro and I thought he was pretty cute.  I hadnít met most of these other guys yet at the time; if I had, I might not have done what I did.
Sawyer.jpg

MJ:  Let me guess - you aged him up?
Shae:  I aged him up.  I just needed to know what that last trait would be.  I couldnít wait around for him and then have it be something horrible.  I didnít trick him or anything.  I told him whatís what and I asked if he was interested.  He said if I would go on a date with him right after he aged up then he was absolutely in.  So I baked him a cake, he blew out the candles, and we went bowling.  We had a lot of fun, and I tell you, for such a young guy, heís a pretty good kisser.
MJ:  Oh yeah?  So what happened after bowling?
Shae:  After bowling, we flirted and kissed and then he suddenly took off.  It was weird.  I mean heíd just aged up so I donít think he was going to work.  But I didnít have much time to think about it, because right after he left, guy number 12 called and asked me to go to the Romance Festival.  And by the way, it was also New Yearís Eve.
MJ:  So tell me about guy number 12.
Shae:  Tetsuís traits include Materialistic and Perfectionist.  Heís also an Insider, and has cat ears.  I do not know what is up with those ears. 
Tetsu 1.jpg

Shae:  I met him my first day here at The Shrieking Llama.  But I was so distracted by those ears that I couldnít pay attention to anything he said.  In fact, I didnít even realize he was a redhead until the next time I saw him Ė thatís how distracting those ears were!  When I saw him again at the gym it was better because I could see his eyes, and I could focus on them.  Here, let me show you.
Tetsu 2.jpg

Shae:  It was a surprise when he called and asked me to go to the Romance Festival.  I wasnít sure about it, but Sawyer had gone running off, and there I was with no plans for New Yearís Eve.  So I said yes, and I am really glad I did!
MJ:  Oh?  What happened?
Shae:  Well, thatís a story for another update, but let me just say that by the time we parted ways, Iíd forgotten all about those ears!

Shae is doing great!  I love the contrast between the snow at home and the warmth of the jungle.  And Father Winter was quite generous!  A $4000 gift is a nice boost for a founding sim. 

Can't wait to see what kind of hunk in a tool belt Shae brings home.  ;)

Wow, that's some generous Winterfest Spirit, there! Hopefully, the jungle adventuring will help her get into a proper legacyboxtm with real walls and everything. (Also, I love that shot of the... I don't quite think it's got any particularly clear markers re:crocodile vs alligator, but maybe simiverse is different.)

Great start Shae.
Taking over the club, selling pics and now the ritual visit to the jungle.

Oh, father winter visit in vacation. And he is quite generous.

Thanks! Yes Father Winter really surprised me!  I expected a knick-knack, so that was quite a bonus.  Photography has been a go-to for me for fast money - pretty repetitive, but not as boring as creating plasma packs from fish!  Although that's a good one since it takes no game time.

Woot!  Another Sharebear legacy!!  Shae is so thoughtful!  Giving a gift to Father Winter.  That's fantastic  ;=)
Looking forward to seeing who she chooses as her Mr. Right.  Assuming it won't be Father Winter...

I didn't realise Shae Berra was an anagram thats such a good idea!  Lol at father winter she should actually marry him instead that would be great
I thought it would be fun to give a gift back, but there was very little in Shae's inventory - a few relics that she didn't want to let go of, and some bone dust.  Is there a use for bone dust?  I don't know of one, so she was willing to part with it. 

And no, no romance with Father Winter just yet . . . that might be in the future down the line for someone else, but as you can see, Shae has more attractive young men in the mix than she can possibly keep around.   ;)

Hmmm, that's a lot of options.  Every time I thought I was going to be a fan of one, another would seem like a good option!  Guess I'll just have to wait until I have more info before I start shipping  ;=)

Ohhhh, that's a lot of spousal options!
If I were Shae (but I'm not, obviously!), I'd probably pick Sawyer.
I can't wait to see which one Shae picks to be her Soulmate.  ;)

Unflirty isn't a problem trait--just set the club vibe to Very Flirty...
And don't you have scads of those VIP Buckets by now?

P.S. I switched your founder's image as requested.   ;D

I didn't start with the idea of all these men, but I'm also in the middle of the Romance Challenge and I guess that's what got me started on this path.  I do think EA has outdone themselves with Seasons - the winter is just so beautiful everywhere.

Hmmm, that's a lot of options.  Every time I thought I was going to be a fan of one, another would seem like a good option!  Guess I'll just have to wait until I have more info before I start shipping  ;=)
They're each going to get at least one date - can't wait to hear what you all think about who she should pick.

Sawyer was the front-runner, and as you'll see in the next update, he was the first date.  He really was so cute bowling - I haven't played much with that pack, so the animations were all new to me.  I got so busy watching them I forgot to take pics, so I missed getting him showing off throwing the ball behind his back and then landing sprawled out on the floor.  But then date number two brought some real . . . assets . . . to the game.  And dates three and four are nothing to sneeze at, and there is the red-head factor, so the decision's going to be harder than I thought.  Especially now that you've given me some ideas about how to overcome unflirty and put Rodrigo back in the running.

Thanks for switching the image!

Generation 1.  Shae Berra

1.05  12 Boys in 6 Nights - Part 1

MJ:  I really want to hear about all your dates, but first, letís recap your progress over your first week.  By my count, you have three points.
Shae:  Yes, 1 Family point, because Iím a Young Adult; 1 Athletic point for completing Leader of the Pack; and 1 Bonus point because you dumped me on my face in the snow and made me buy that useless suit of armor.
MJ:  Itís not useless.  It raises your bills, making your challenge more . . . challenging.
Shae:  Yeah.  Thanks for that.  So, 3 points, plus Iíve maxed photography and Iím level 9 charisma.  When I max charisma, my second aspiration will be done.  And, I have 9 more first dates ahead of me and then some second dates, so Serial Romantic will be a breeze.
MJ:  Speaking of dates, let's hear it!
Shae:  Ok, first was Sawyer.  Like I said, it was before Iíd met most of these other guys and I was feeling like there werenít very many choices around.  I thought he was cute and then I realized he was a teen.  I wanted to know what his last trait would be before I decided whether or not to date him, so I asked him to go with me to Myshuno Meadows. 

01 - Sawyer.jpg

Shae:  I baked him a cake while I told him about the legacy and where he might fit in, and he was really interested.  But I needed to know what that last trait would be, and he agreed to bail on high school if I agreed to at least one date.  So I did and he did.
02 - Sawyer cake.jpg

Shae:  And now he loves the outdoors!  So that worked out fine.  And then we went bowling.  We were surprisingly good at that!
03 - Bowling.jpg

Shae:  After bowling, we got all cozy and flirty.
04 - Sawyer flirting.jpg

Shae:  Things were really starting to heat up.
05 - Sawyer.jpg

Shae:  And then he left.  Just stopped talking, walked out and disappeared.  I was trying to decide what to do next when Tetsu called.
MJ:  Testsu . . . yes . . . Mr. Cat Ears.
Shae:  Yes, and he invited me to the Romance Festival.  We met there and he immediately started flirting.
06 - Tetsu flirting.jpg

Shae:  Those cat ears really are distracting, so I consulted the Romance Guru.
07 - Romance Guru.jpg

Shae:  She was not helpful.  But I donít really need her to tell me what's what.  Tetsu and I definitely have chemistry!  I just wish we didnít also have cat ears.
08 - Tetsu heart.jpg

Shae:  After the Romance Festival, we went back to where we met Ė the Shrieking Llama Ė for the New Yearís Countdown.
09 - Tetsu countdown.jpg

Shae:  And I made a resolution to have a significant other within a week!  After the countdown we went outside to talk.  It was a little chilly, but not as crowded as inside.  It suddenly struck me that maybe the cat ears were just part of the outfit, so I asked to see him in his formal wear.
10 - Tetsu Formal.jpg

Shae:  No such luck, but he does look pretty good in the sweater and tie.  So I took a chance and asked to see him in his swimwear.
11 - Tetsu swim.jpg

Shae:  And just like that, I forgot all about the cat ears!  I kid you not Ė I could look at that all day long and then some.  But it was cold out and I surely didn't want him to freeze off anything I might want a closer look at later, so eventually I had to let him put his clothes back on.  But I did not want to, I assure you! 
MJ:  Oh, yes, I can certainly see why!
Shae:  Iíd already decided not to make anyone a boyfriend until after Iíve had at least one date with each one.  So I settled for becoming Best Friends Forever . . . for now.
12 - Tetsu BFF.jpg

MJ:  Wow!  Iím almost afraid to ask about Date Number 3.
Shae:  Date number 3 was actually pretty unexpected.  I still had images of Tetsu swimming around in my head, but when he wasnít standing right in front of me, I remembered the cat ears.  I was thinking about telling you about all the guys and I realized that I hadnít gotten pictures of a couple of the ones I met in Selvadorado.  I couldnít seem to invite them to my lot, so I went back for a short trip just to get pics.  I rented a place close to the market and I was there about 5 minutes when Joshua came strolling by.  Heís so cute!  And I love his red hair - and that he only has two ears and theyíre on the sides of his head where they belong.
13 - Joshua first meet.jpg

Shae: We chatted a few minutes and he invited me to go see the Archeology Museum with him.  But once we got there, we pretty much only saw each other! 
14 - Joshua flirts.jpg

Shae:  We talked and laughed and flirted a lot!  He finally kissed me, and I wanted to encourage that, so I gave him a massage.
15 - Joshua Massage.jpg

Shae:  I think he really liked it!  We talked some more and I told him about the legacy.  He told me about his daughter.
16 - Joshua.jpg

Shae:  I asked him if heíd ever consider leaving Selvadorado, and he said he would, but heíd want to come back and visit.  And that heíd only go if his daughter agreed.
MJ:  Are you open to that? 
Shae:  Of course!  Iím family-oriented, remember?  Iíd never ask him to leave his daughter!  And thereís plenty of room in the house . . . that you havenít built me yet. 
MJ:  Okay, so whenís the next date?
Shae:  Right now.  Iím meeting Mateo at the flea market.

A few minutes later . . .

Mateo:  Shae, so good to see you again!
Shae:  Yeah, I was thinking we should . . . . ohmygoshlook!  That guy is selling some rare metals!  I just need to run over there and grab those right quick!
17 - Mateo - flea market.jpg

Shae runs across the street.

Mateo (calling after her):  Sure, but then we go have some real fun!
18 - Mateo duet.jpg

Mateo:  You know we sounded really awful.
Shae:  Yeah.  Letís just sit and chat here.  Maybe I can give you a massage.
19 - Mateo sofa.jpg

Mateo:  Shae, youíre stealing my heart away!
Shae:  Well, arenít you just so sweet to say  . . . oh my look at the time.  I really need to go check the flea market tables once more before it closes.
Mateo:  Not so fast, sweetheart!
20 - Mateo First Kiss.jpg

Shae runs across the street.

Mateo (calling after her):  Until next time, Sugarlips!
Shae:  Ohmygosh, 13 of 15!  Score!
21 - Mateo Snow Globes.jpg

Later, outside the San Myshuno gym . . .

Matias:  Shae, whatís with the sudden gym meeting?
Shae:  Oh, I just need some energy, some fun, and a shower.
Matias:  I can help with that!
22 - Matias Rally.jpg

Matias:  That covers the energy.  Now you go grab a shower and then Iím taking you out dancing!

At the nightclub

Shae:  Thereís something I need to talk to you about.
Matias:  Sure baby, what do you want to talk about?
Shae:  See, Iím the founder of a Sharebear Legacy and so I have to . . . .
Matias . . . come dance with me, thatís what you have to do!
23 - Matias.jpg

Shae:  Now about this Legacy thing . . . . there are some things I have to do and sometimes I have to do them at a certain time.  For example, I'm not ready to be tied down just yet, but for the legacy, I really need a boyfriend right now . . .
Matias:  oooooyesyesyes!
