Briar the Third has hit midlife – that means midlife hairdo and such. Now she’s looking quite distinguished.

Image

 

There were a few other major age-ups, Briar IV hit Young Adult and there was the big graduation:

Image

Image

 

Went with a bit more of an informal look on the Legacy’s latest adult:

Image

Also, found her a perfect rebellious match:

Image

Image

Couldn’t resist that suit. It was impossible.

Week 34: Movin’ along

Week 34’s been pretty much business as usual at the Troublefield Manor.

Image

The Garden’s coming along -so’s the romance:

Image

Image

Briar the Third is generous, she don’t mind a little creepin’ from time to time. The rest of the family had a pretty average week – Dyanthus is learning Logic, to balance her athletics and Briar IV spent it reading, when not working on painting.

Image

Image

 

 

Week 33: Old Lady Troublefield.

The full moon came early to Troublefields this week.

Image

Image

Image

Clover may be a spare, but she’s still my favorite werewolf. So much style. That week werewolves weren’t the only thing changing… Briar the Second turned old.

Image

Image

Image

She did what everyone should do when they turn old: sculpt with a chainsaw. Dyanthus’ imaginary friend reached new heights of creepiness.

Image

Image

So, that about sums up Week 33.

Week 32: The Third Kid

Image

Elizabeth Troublefield was born! No fairy wings, but that’s probably for the best. This week the sisters got a little closer –Image

Image

 

Briar the Third’s fixing up the garden will make Clover’s goal of becoming a master alchemist that much easier. Once the mushrooms start rolling in, a new stock of Potent Invigorating Elixirs can be made, sleep can be banished and the family can put on another 100k of simoleans. It’s a good thing too, since Clover is still seeing Cuddles. This time at her place:

Image

Image

Poor Cuddles. One day, you’re the imaginary friend of the heir of a grand dynasty. The next, you’re living in the trailer at the bottom of the river.

Image

The massage’ll probably make her desperation and poverty better. Maybe.

Later that week, the family celebrated the birthday of Elizabeth, bringing her into the world of toddling and Sprocket Novels.

Image

Image

It took a couple tries but eventually she made it!

Week 31: ZooOOOOooOOOM

Image

The week continued the fling between Briar the Third and the pink winged man – the relationship is getting serious.Image

What brought it about though? Dyanthus aged up to teen and well…Image

Between Briar the Forth and Dyanthus, the Dynasty was getting a little heavy. Fortunately, Briar the Second stepped up to the task:

ImageImage

They enjoyed a celebratory hug after trumping obesity, and life around the manor resumed as normal.

ImageImage

Meanwhile, Briar IV chose a lifetime wish – she’s going to be a renaissance sim, a perfect fit for the Troublefield line. Currently, logic and painting are her focuses.

Image

Finally, Briar the Third broke things off with the father of her heir and spare.

Image

Image

After all, she’s carrying the faerie’s child.

Week 30: Bibliotecha

After Clover’s been getting so much attention, I decided to spend a little time working on Briar the Third. Ever since she had the heir and the spare, she’s been kind of in the background – mostly just painting or brooding.

Image

Image

I decided to start off by getting her a new project: restore the Troublefield Garden. Since the last house expansion, it’s been reduced in size. And quality. To do this though, she’d have to learn gardening. That would mean tutoring with Briar the Second, and that would take patching up their relationship.ImageImage

But really, who wants to patch up their family relationships? Briar chose the Bibliotecha instead, reading books and turning pages like a demon. She did a little field work too, but it’s slow going with only a couple mushrooms to work with.Image

Meanwhile, Briar the Forth aged up!Image

Obviously, the hair and outfit don’t measure up to Troublefield standards.Image

Better. That’s an outfit one can brood in.

The day after the birthday party, Briar the Third returned to the library to get a little more studying in but she got sidetracked.

Image

What is this mysterious little man with pink wings?

ImageImage

Who – or whatever – he is, he’s got her attention. No studying was done. Only ghost stories and socialization.

Image

By Saturday, she was hooked. Next week’ll be interesting.

Image

Week 29: The Cuddles Affair

Image

Though Cuddles was once imaginary, her torrid affair with Clover is very real. Things continue to heat up – perhaps she’ll be even be allowed to rejoin the family.

Image

Image

In the rest of the house, Dyanthus Troublefield (The forth generation spare) aged up to child – their competition is beginning.

Image

Briar the Second made a couple new sculptures:

Image

And Briar the Third was a brooding hag.

Image

Week 28: Cuddlin’

So Week 27 was kind of boring. It was spent teaching toddlers not to poop in the wrong places and reading them the encyclopedia of children’s skills. I couldn’t stand seeing the dynasty so sluggish so I decided to make some things happen.

But what to do?Image

 

How about get the spare some romance? She’s still bitter about Briar the Third being chosen to pass on the dynasty genes so I decided to kill two birds with one stone. She would seduce Briar III’s ol’ imaginary friend: Cuddles.

Image

Image

 

The ol’ Elixir of Seduction worked like a charm. At first. Once Clover complimented Cuddles on her etiquette, they hit a snag.

Image

It turns out imaginary friends are inappropriate – a definite hurdle for a proper werewolf. It took a little work and a couple elixirs, but they patched things up. Way up.

Image

Image

While that was going on, Briar the Second returned to sculpting – I decided to fix up her basement alchemy lab a little. 

Image

Briar the IV made it to Childhood. That week’s full moon hit and the Troublefields spent it enjoying fine dining and chess.
