The Roygbiv Dynasty - Crashed and Failed
« on: March 19, 2011, 01:25:39 AM »
*I am a newbie to all this and I'm making this post to apologize ahead of time and also explain how I am doing this. I chose the name Roygbiv because I had been thinking about prisms and colors and rainbows and the name just popped in my head. There aren't quite 8 colors here, but there is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet and if I get to generation eight then I think it will just go back to red, or they will be the rainbow child. The hair color reflects the family as well, it is red with orangeish/yellow highlights, green tips, and blue roots. The eyes reflect the Indigo/Violet aspect of things and each generation's founder or heir will wear the color the reflects their 'color' and everything they purchase will be that color so ultimately, the house is going to end up with many different colors all from this spectrum reflecting all the different generations. It seems a bit much, I know, but so far it has been fun.

The Roygbiv Dynasty
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet...the full spectrum of immortals
.



Generation 1 - Red - Redeesha Roygibiv aka The Girl Who Loves Fish
Traits: Angler, Artistic, Green Thumb, Loves the Outdoors, Natural Cook
Favorites: Loves to eat Sushi, Loves Classical Music, Loves the Color Red
Lifelong Wish: Perfect Private Aquarium

Chapter One - The Introduction

Where I come from, everything is easy and free and the people run about well taken care of. Nobody is poor, everybody lives forever and people like me? Well I'm a Princess. Princess Redeesha of the royal Roygibiv family in the land of Prisia. My father decided that the family needed to be spread out a bit more, so one day...I woke up in a strange mirrored room being asked questions about everything and having all my fine jewels my tiara and everything taken away! I would never see my pet shark again. Ever again. But I was told that if I worked hard, and completed certain tasks that I'd regain my immortality and be able to pass on the skills to those who come after me.



So yes, I'm Redeesha. Yes, I love fish...oh I love the water. You'd think with how much I love being outside and I love fishing and eating fishy foods and of course cooking fishy foods with things grown in homegrown gardens that my favorite colors would be green or blue or something equally as naturific and marine. But no, I love red. I was born loving red. It represents passion, life, love...even happiness and it keeps me happy. So here I am...Redeesha, the 'founder' of the Barnacle Bay (I couldn't believe they dumped me here) Roygibivs. Life is just starting to get interesting...with the little bit of money, I had enough to get started. But you'd be surprised how quickly 1000 or so goes down just to make sure you can eat, sleep and bathe! Here is the Roygbiv mansion. And so my story begins.

Welcome to the forum simsissy.  You are getting off to a good start on your Dynasty and Redeesha is beautiful.  I can't wait to see what happens next.  I'll be following along for all your generations to come.

Note:  I learned the colors of the rainbow when I was young with these very letters, well as a name anyway - Roy G. Biv.  Just wanted to let you know that the name of your Dynasty has brought back fond memories for me ;)

*Thank you all for your wonderful feedback. I've been having a few difficulties with settings and freezes and trying to figure out the best way to handle getting portraits (I just figured out you can't paint a portrait of yourself) but I'm sure it'll work out slowly but surely. For some reason these generations seems to be going sooooo sloooow. Anyhow, here's chapter 2 of the amazing Roy G Biv family (I'm glad I'm not the only person who learned colors like this)

Chapter 2 -A new life



I had everything I needed. A refrigerator, a toilet, a shower, a bed and for some reason the best part of everything was the fact that I finally got a table. A table meant I could sit and eat food! This was the most exciting part of my first day, words cannot express how amazingly awesome this was for me.



To calm down, I started to find the prime fishing spots in the Barnacle Bay city. With so much water, I was in Simmie Heaven, but for some reason there was still the annoying fact that the sound of water makes a person have to pee, all the time. I caught a cute minnow, and couldn't really celebrate for the fact that while I fish, I always have to pee, so if I look a little annoyed forgive me.



Life was good, I had a fridge stocked with bread and jam and after a long day of fishing and selling my fresh fish at the market, I'd come home to my...sparse scrap of land. I mean my 'mansion' and chow down on a delicious piece of bread with fruit jam spread on it. I needed a new way of making money, my profession was considered a professional Angler and if I was ever going to create the perfect aquarium I needed as much practice as possible, so I spent time meditating on my options as I ate my bread.



I even attempted to look to the skies to see if I could see or predict cool new places to fish or sell my fish. I got a little smarter and also saw some shocking things in other people's houses but I'm a Princess and a Lady so I will never tell.



I'd stay out late at night, just fishing away, fishing as much as possible for hourse...bladder and personal hygiene sacrificed to find some flippery creatures to sell! What people do with goldfish...I willnever know, apparently they eat them. I cannot think about this too much or I start to feel bad for all the little Goldies.



Money was coming in slowly, surely yes, but slowly and after paying my bills I noticed days were ticking by. So I invested time and energy in visiting the local consignment shop and coming to an agreement with the owner to practice drawing out plans and making sketches to create some type of direction in my life. It turns out you can actually sell sketches, not for much, but it was enough to start building up my pocket change.



I got new room mates in the form of dirty plates and flies and I knew I had to search the papers for some type of help. I found none but I decided to spend some of my fragile funds for the ultimate upgrade...



I sold a couple of sketches and many fish to finally be able to afford a lovely sink to wash dishes in and I put proof of my sacrifices up in the form of one of my first sketches. Just for a little proof that it was through working with my arms and pencil I was able to monopolize on my fishing career and finally have a place to wash my dishes so my lot didn't look like homeless slobs lived there! Life was looking good...I even had a new best friend named Anchie the Anchovy to keep me company in his bowl.



But as I brought a Tragic Clown Fish to the local production of 'Hook, Line and My Life's a Stinker' I noticed one thing. I sat in the seats and watched the people sing and dance and as the lead actors and singers would sing their tragic love songs...I never felt more alone.

Tune in Next time to see, will she ever find true love?!

Chapter 3 - Til' Now (Quote from the song Alone)



Late at night...I found myself scrounging around in the scrap yard for things I could bring home and use. I couldn't help but think it would be less gross and possibly more entertaining if I had company. But as I sorted through pipes and icky things, the most I found was an old chair.



The next day I found myself at the house warming party of a friend named 'Neal' even though he really didn't know me. So technically I crashed the party, but nobody noticed! He looked like a woman, but he really loved the delivery of fish I had sent his family or something so many of his party guests were popular but they didn't look down on me. This is also...where I met my soul mate. Moe.



The party ran late, but I invited him to the beach the next day to meet with him after my fishing run. He kept talking about science and things I really didn't understand but I tried to pretend like I was fascinated...honestly.



From his science babble to his insane to the nice dinner we shared at the restaurant in the old beat up wrecked looking ship...I told him that I felt he was like a rare gem. He was obviously flattered.



We played baseball on the beach, all night, until it grew late and I had to go home but...we had made a connection. When he told me he had to go...I told him that our 'date' had been a homerun trying to be witty and as I held the baseball, I was angry at myself. That was so lame...but he smiled, and told me anytime I wanted to hang out again, to let him know.



The next few days he was the only thing on my mind. Moe...Moe...Moe, I wanted to see more of Moe. So I decided to work on becoming a better educated and refined lady so I'd be worthy of his giant brain. I might've let the food in the fridge rot in my goal...but it was the paint brush's fault.



I learned to cook more, investing in a stove and a counter so I could prepare him food. I suppose I had really fallen for the man, I let my fishing fall by the wayside for a bit.



I spent more of my evenings at the library, reading about gardening and other household things knowing I'll have to take responsibility for completing the Holy Tasks (All Immortals have to do this)to eventually become Immortal. But it also meant when I got home at night...



...I'd been to tired to even notice horrible crimes. Goldie and Anchie were cruely abducted by a masked criminal when I was asleep and when I called the police! They told me they were so sorry, but it seemed like the robber got away.



The house felt...more full now. I had a little kitchen, a tiny livingroom/dining room...I got replacements for Archie and Goldie. They were so young...so perfect, but I accepted my fate in life. My house was finally perfect for starting my family. Now. I had to find the man. I secretly hoped it would be Moe.

Tune in Next Time to see...Will it be Moe?

*Thank you all for your feedback! I'm...a little stuck at the moment due to some game errors I've had to deal with but I am getting over them best I can and hoping to plow through, I have to remember to not take as many pictures because yes, story telling is fun! But I have 8 generations to get through there.

It was so sad to hear about the fish being stolen.  I hope that robber takes good care of them :D.

Your story is really coming along, just remember to save, save, save.  If you are having gaming problems I would hate for you to lose what you have so far delightedly created.  I am really enjoying your storytelling - and the pictures too!

Chapter 4 - Any? Many? Miny? Moe!



Time went by, as time often does. I was afraid my life would go away. My studies at the library paid off though, I learned to do some gardening and in my fishing trips I even found a new friend, his name is 'Capitan Gardin' and he guards my lovely plants at night. But Moe...he was too busy for me. He always had other things to do, or was at work, or just didn't feel like coming over. I began to think he had moved on.



So I met Chase, and I thought we had a lot in common and we did. But then I learned he was uncomfortable with people talking about romantic or flirty things with him and one day I invited him over to fish, and he ran away...he fled because I told him his beard looked nice. I was so upset I made a call...



...I must've sounded very upset because he rushed back over, dressed in his hospital scrubs and he took me in his arms.

"Shhh, Redeesha, goodness...it is okay. I'm here. You don't have to cry, I'm sorry I haven't been around work has been crazy...are you alright? I thought you were choking on the phone and I rushed right over to help you..."



"I'm o-okay, now that...wait, are you touching me? Are we actually hugging? I'm...I'm okay now Moe, now that you're here. I'm sorry if I bothered you I just..."

I was in his arms and I knew in my heart, that I had been right all alone. This was my soul mate. He had left work to come to my aid, when I hadn't seen him in so many hours...



Before I knew it I was on my knees. Where I pulled the ring out of, I'm not sure. But I was told that all Sims in Simworld are unlike those from my own home...they can pull expensive items out of their butts. So I reached into the invisible back pocket and pulled out the ring and proposed to him. It shocked him to no end, but he accepted!

I told him I didn't have much money, and I couldn't afford a very big party...but he said that was okay. The fish and the Garden Gnome could be our guests and we'd have our own little private ceremony.



"I, Moe, take you Redeesha, to be my beautiful...exotic fish addicted wife. To have, and to hold, and to learn how to paint so I can paint you a portrait...til death do us part. But only my death because you've already told me you plan to be immortal and that's okay because have you looked in a mirror? You are the hottest thing since the historic Bella Goth from waaaay back in the day...um, with this ring I seal my promise."



"I, Redeesha, take you Moe...to be my lovely husband with the Italian sounding last name I cannot pronounce or spell but don't really care because you're so cute! Um, To have, and to hold and to cook for and and to have at least one baby for, til your death do us part because I have to work hard to complete tasks and eat magical jello so I live forever...so sorry honey but it is my job. With this ring, I seal my promise."



Then the Fridge told us...that we could kiss. So we did. And with that...he became Prince Moe Roygbiv, my husband, my artist, my doctor and my confidant. We were as one.



He got out of his scrubs after the 'ceremony' and told me, as nicely as he possible could. "Reddy, darling. Now that we're married I feel the need to tell you...your lot is the filthiest thing I have ever seen. I know you don't have time to clean baby. That's okay, but let me get started. Please. Before our honeymoon night...there's something growing in the sink and I'm afraid it has gained sentience."

So I just went to take a nap, and sleep. The last few hours had been exhausting. He said he'd take care of everything.



He spent time moving his things in, I spent time resting up for our special night. Moe had purchased me a gift! A lot of fish bowls for my future fishie friends and as he looked in my eyes, and I looked in his eyes...we both decided to call the baby stork and go see how much of the sun our new canopied bed really blocked out.



A day or two later, I woke up in the middle of the night. My gown had changed colors. Moe just snoozed away as I had a feeling of knowing come over me. Something was growing inside of me, I was practically penniless. My husband had to divide time between his medical career and his learning to paint...and I wasn't even close to being prepared to become Immortal. I'd have to step up my game.

Tune in Next Time to see...Is it a baby?

*As a side note? Moe was so awesome. I like to think he is Italian because his favorite music is Classical and his favorite food is Spagetti. Ironically enough, the next generation will be 'Orange' and guess what Moe's favorite colors is? Orange! His traits are Good Sense of Humor, Workaholic, Loves the Outdoors, Handy, and Angler. Wait til you see what happens next! Also a note about the 'cleaning' comment. I swear right after they got married...the thought bubble about cleaning popped up and I just laughed and had to capture it. Because it was so nasty around there.

Chapter 5 - And Baby Makes Three



We fell into a routine, Moe and I. I got a letter from my mother encouraging me to have a female heir and sending all types of silly recipes and suggestions. Apparently, as a 'sim', if I eat watermelons, I'll have a female. So, in the morning, we'd eat watermelon pancakes made from the excess watermelons left over from my eating them through out the day. I kept asking if he liked them, he'd just...finish eating and smile at me.



Between painting and work, the time we spent together was minimal. The pond close to our house allowed me to fish for hours and he'd just hold me close before leaving for work, saying goodbye to me and the baby.



Then he'd go to work, carrying a big strange needle gun and stabbing/shooting people with it in the park. They'd line up for his experimental injections as well. He had a theory that using fish DNA with sneezle medication would keep people from growing scales or something.



He had a birthday, quietly and by himself. Didn't make a bit deal out of it. He knew he was older and more experienced than me.



Anyhow, routine isn't always a good thing. He left for work one morning and while I was out gardening, I felt a pain. I tried to call him, I really did but the baby was coming!



(I totally forgot he actually worked at the hospital so he was already there and I didn't need to call him and he was prepared to hold my hand so we'll skip by this part.)



And that is the day /she/ came into our lives. Baby Orgeesha Roygbiv. Future Princess of the Roygbiv family. Cute as a button little pea pod.

Very quiet baby, the doctors told us she was Disciplined and a potential Virtuoso. She responded best to Latin music, the scent of Hot Dogs and when they shined the Pink Light during her testing, she responded favorably.



The night before, when my husband had his secret birthday party, would be the last night we'd sleep through the night for a very long time. When I'd wake up thinking it was because I had to pee...I could almost be sure, that she would as well. And so, motherhood began.

Tune in Next Time to see...So what about the terrible twos?

Chapter 6 - Family Life Begins



A beautiful baby girl and a beautiful new life. Even though we didn't have a technical house yet, our love for our precious little bundle of pink and brown.



I found myself having later nights, after putting the baby to bed and while the husband was still at work. I'd use whatever I caught for the day to make sushi or little meals I could eat. Think about the day.



We never had many visitors. The shy man I had attempted to court before I married Moe however, Chase? He showed up one day asking if he could hold the baby. Apparently he was sad he'd never have a family and he became like a grandfather to Orgeesha.



It was like having a family friend, or a family member who was a friend. He'd visit. I'd cook sandwiches. Everything seemed ever so lovely.



Then during one visit...he suddenly died. Just like that, no more Chase, just a ghost. He looked happy to go though, as if it was his time. It was still rather shocking however.



The next morning, we had Orgeesha's birthday party. That moment in every special Princess's life where they go from pink grub with a face to...a beautiful tiny sim.



And beautiful little Sim indeed. A real daddy's girl!



For some reason her father insisted on dressing her like a bunny rabbit. She got his hair color and a unique eye color. Alas, I suppose we can't all have lovely red hair. But she'd be the line of Orange, so she had the right to not have my hair.



She'd stay up late, dressed like a bunny rabbit, playing music with her little instrument, banging away and giggling before morning would come...



And we couldn't find her! Because she'd be hiding away in her pirate toy chest, thinking it was the funniest thing since something really funny.



Over all, she was a sweet little toddler, even if her bunny suit was odd. She loved rabbits though, her favorite toy was her pink bunny and she'd play with it for hours. No complaining, just music and bunny rabbits. The future heir to the family line.

Tune in next time to see the childhood years! And whether or not they finally get a house!
