The worst part of doing two legacies at once- I have to update two of them at once :') I hope you all enjoy the third chapter, crap really hits the fan on Pandora's side of things and that's always fun. Enjoy!

I was looking forward to an update :)

Spoiler:
OMG, you have a Thistle too. She's so spirited, I love her. Ana is a sweetheart too. I love the dynamics of the family. They all work together really well. And of course Pandora is over snooping around. I only had time to read the Averages chapter 2, but I'll be reading the rest as soon as I can. (I want to see Thistle grow up)


Spoiler:
I snuck read chapter three at work. I have no idea why, but when Ana grew up 'Call me maybe" started playing in my head. I can just see her singing it lol

I'm glad you're enjoying it at least! It's a fun endeavor to do two legacies at once.

Spoiler:
Hahah, she really would! Ana is the perkiest lil sweetheart and I am SO glad she's the heiress. I already have her love interest and I can't WAIT to see their adorable babies.

So far, so good, with three chapters on each side, and I'm quite enjoying it. Pandora, in particular, is quite a character, and the others are really starting to grow and express themselves, as well.

As for the name for the cowplant, how about Moophestopheles?

I LOVE that name! I might name her Penelope Moophestopheles, her full name :D Pandora can be the utter Worst sometimes but she's one of my favorite sims, her shenanigans never fail to make me laugh. I will be sad the day she goes.

Chapter Four is now up for both sides btw ;D

Chapter Five is up on both sides, I don't feel as confident in my writing this time but I think I just played too far ahead to focus on the events in the chapters, plus, super busy lately. Hope you all enjoy :D

I'm loving the legacy so far and was wondering .. where do I get the default thought bubbles and the default medieval computer .

I just read all the updates and LOVED IT.

Spoiler:
So this is going to be a quick-ish overview of my thoughts on all 12 chapters. :lol:

I love the idea of having two legacies at the same time, and I might have to try it myself at some point...

STUPID NANNY CAUSING A FIRE AND ALMOST COSTING YOU ALL YOUR HEIRS AND SPARES. She deserved what she got.

I can't help but laugh at all of Pandora's crazy kids with their scaly and furry skin. They're all gorgeous though.

I can't wait to see what the two families get up to next! Other than that little snaffoo with the stupid nanny, things seem to be going really well. :)

It's been a while since I read, this, but what a fun evening's entertainment, to read several chapters at once! So much funny stuff, and the characters are so... charismatic? Interesting? Full of themselves? Wait...

Spoiler:
No, seriously, I love these families, and the sims in them. Even the mean and sassy ones are just too interesting! And Phoebe gets to "shine", now, too!

This has made me miss my medieval stuff in The Hamlet, but I had to get rid of most of my CC, and I never even dared to do default replacements. I love looking at your town!

I cracked up so much when Gage made an appearance. He looks a bit different. I'm guessing new hair and skintone? But the facial structure is unmistakable! I'm looking forward to seeing more of HIM at the business.

Medusa being a sweet and loving sister is so cool! Also, where did you get that hair?!

Oh, and I'm glad you liked the name. And you put in my simself? NEAT!


Very fun!

Wow, a dual legacy! Now I feel like doing one too :> Or a historical/fantasy theme. I just love Plumbob Keep.
Spoiler:
"I'm a grilled cheese sim."

THAT'S NOT A THING. YOU'RE A CAT.

There's a lot of funny stuff to comment on, but this one actually made me laugh out loud :rofl:

It is possible to change the values of custom geneticized skins in SimPE so that they're above the range of "normal skins" (tutorial here). Although then you'd miss out on those changelings :P

May I suggest doing a side-by-side chapter list? It'd be easier for the reader to grasp, especially once you get to later generations.

Looking forward to more, this story is a hoot to read ;)
