Mesquite Bough. A loner with the childhood aspiration of social butterfly. What? I guess the “random trait generator” really is what it says… random. Loner I can understand, as Mesquite’s dad, Timothy, is a loner, and Acacia rolled “loner” as her teen trait. But how does a loner get the aspiration of social butterfly? At first this really had me puzzled until I realized that Mesquite is one of those brave souls who chooses an aspiration which most challenges him to face his own personal limitations head on. More power to you, Mesquite!
Acacia was a happy, if plump, teen.
She jogged, she did her homework, she played chess.
Mesquite’s first day of school was so hard, and Timothy really sympathized.
For a while, Cassandra Goth came over every day, until we found out that this gloomy, evil Sim broke our dollhouse every time she visited!
Mesquite was a hit at the park. He had all the kids laughing and moved everybody into playful moods.
In the middle of playing pirates, Paris got off the ship and transformed into a teen. How convenient that Acacia was nearby!
Soon, time being the demon that it is to all legacy families, Cedar had a sea change of her own to suffer.
She still looks great.
One day, when the kids got home from the park, Cedar and Timothy were already asleep. Usually, when Cedar sleeps, she laughs and giggles in her sleep. But this night, she was whimpering. She was so sad! And she was alone in bed.
Timothy had slept in Acacia’s empty bed. As soon as I moved him back into the second-best bed with Cedar, she began to laugh and smile in her sleep again.
Soon it was Timothy’s turn to age up. He was sad because I didn’t throw him a party. Being the loner that he is, I thought I was doing him a favor. Turns out I was wrong–I guess even loners like parties!
Paris started hanging out a lot. Cedar’s not sure what to think of him.
And Timothy manages to always keep an eye out when Acacia and Paris are spending time together.
Paris, in addition to being neat, is a hot-head. I’m not sure I’m read for a hot-head in the family.
It’s a little creepy to me that while Acacia napped in the bath, Paris read romance novels while sitting on her bed.
Thanks to the astronaut reward-goodies, these kids are confident in the kitchen!
Acacia and Mesquite become BFFs so he can reach level 3 of social butterfly, while Cedar and Timothy complete the last date needed for her soulmate aspiration.
Acacia strode towards adulthood, sporting this great outfit that she chose herself.
At one rocking party, Acacia became an adult, and Mesquite became a teen. He rolled, what? Music-lover as his trait–ok, makes sense. But “Friend of the World” for his adult aspiration? Like I said, this is one brave loner who meets his demons straight on. Fear of strangers? Bring it on! Social embarrassment? Not an impediment!
Acacia rolled “self-assured” as her adult trait, which makes quite a lot of sense, actually, since she spent much of her childhood and teen years in the confident mood. So she’s a self-assured, loner genius, with the aspiration of nerd brain. It fits her! We’re not sure yet who’s the heir, since this is an exemplar legacy with goofball as the family trait. We’ll have to wait until Mesquite’s birthday before we find out if it will be him or the first-born.
Timothy uses the bonsai to express his views on life as a legacy co-founder.
