Hello again and welcome to the Hues legacy, a color-themed joint legacy
between Haleigh (meadowthayer) and me (Taube)! When we last left off
(which was a while ago – sorry!), 5th generation heiress Coral and her
husband Chris were about to have their third and final child while
everyone except little toddler Plum crowded into the same corner.
Amethyst wanted to hug her mother, Timberwolf had just finished
playing with Coral while Slate hung out nearby, and of course, Coral’s
parents Lime and Ericka saw fit to love up on each other in the most
popular corner in the house. It was a very well-attended birth.
The third and final baby of this generation is a little girl named
Violet, with S1 skin, brown hair, and the rainbow eyes! That means
that all three kids got the eyes, so all are eligible for heir/ess.
Coral and Chris immediately get to know their youngest
daughter, which includes a little spitting-up session for
After the birth, Amethyst heads back downstairs and focuses
on her skills. She is very bright and quickly maxes one after
Taking a cue from what Haleigh did last chapter with this room, I
redecorated the living room in purples to celebrate three
purple-named kids with the eyes. You’ll also notice that
Amethyst has maxed another skill.
Despite having had the job for a while, Coral hasn’t been to work
in the culinary career yet due to maternity leave. With her
pregnancy days behind her, she finally gets to go in and work
towards her LTW of being a celebrity chef. Chris is waiting for law
enforcement to open up so he can work on his 4th LTW of
becoming Captain Hero.
Amethyst decides to do some of
her skillbuilding in the
playroom, where she can watch
over her little brother while he
plays with his blocks.
Later, Chris comes in to join Plum.
He’s very popular for a toddler.
Timberwolf and his son Slate, the
family dogs, are both getting pretty
up there in dog years, so I decided
it was time to get a new puppy. Her
name is Eggshell, since she’s a
white puppy and I’m trying not to
give all the cute names to spares
and dogs like I have in the past. ;)
Anyway, Timberwolf seems to
approve of her. She and Slate will
have puppies once she’s old
enough, so hopefully he likes her
Coral is finally permaplatinum after her one day of work following
her pregnancies. Her new LTW is to be a visionary.
“BOO! Hey, remember us, the overactive, petty ghosts?
Yeah, well, we didn’t go away between last chapter and this one.
Time to wreak some havoc again!”
Coral and Chris spend a little time
with their youngest two, whose
birthdays have come up on the
Plum and Violet both have their
birthday with the rest of the
family in attendance.
Immediately after the birthday, all three of the kids’ main wants are
to interact with each other. Amethyst and Violet aren’t particularly
nice, though Plum does have 6 points, but they definitely have
some sibling love going on.
Here’s Plum. He’s still a cutie, obviously. This will be a hard
generation to choose an heir/ess.
And here’s little Violet, who is also adorable. She also got Coral’s
nose, so Amethyst is the only one carrying the now-recessive family
nose, I believe.
Violet’s personality is 10/7/4/4/3. Like her brother, she is super
Once Plum and Amethyst have said their hellos to Violet, her parents
crowd in. They’re soon both best friends with her.
Before long, Violet is also best friends with her big brother and
Once again, Coral stays out of the
fray when it comes to teaching a
toddler their skills, but the rest of the
family makes up for it. Coral is such a
pleasure sim that she just doesn’t
roll a lot of parenting wants.
Regardless, Violet learns all her skills
Speaking of teaching and learning, Plum gets to go to his first
day of school and learns homework skills from Lime. He then
settles onto the couch to skill with his sister.
Coral is now a visionary. Her new LTW is to woohoo 20 sims, which is so
“Congratulations on growing
up! Boo! And boo again!”
“I don’t think I like being a child
Lily introduces poor Plum to the
recent family tradition of being
repeatedly awakened by
The ghosts are still extremely
active, which is kind of weird since
nothing like the house or beds have
changed recently. I don’t know why
they’re so pissy this generation.
Sinjin gets Chris, who ought to
know better than to wander by the
graveyard, and Ericka, who also
gets scared by Lily.
Eggshell is proving to be a popular
member of the house. It’ll be
interesting to see what she grows
Slate has gotten old in the meantime.
Clever little Amethyst maxes all
Now she gets free time, but the
slightly serious little thing just
wants to play chess all day.
Ghost Peach, when she’s not joining in the scaring, likes to dig
invisible holes, which I find kind of amusing.
Violet is such a cutie. I just took a
bunch of pictures of her. I guess
it’s mostly because she’s the last
baby of the generation.
Also, although she didn’t
participate much in her
skilling, Coral does enjoy playing
with her little daughter.
Eggshell finally grows up and she
turns out to be a Jack Russell terrier.
Cute! She and Slate don’t have much
of a relationship since he pretty
much ignored her as a puppy, so
that’ll need some work before they
can have puppies of their own.
Eggshell is Amethyst’s favorite
dog, and now that she doesn’t
have to skill, she spends a lot of
time playing fetch with Eggshell.
It’s Amethyst’s and Violet’s birthday! Let’s see the first teenager and
last child of the generation.
Here’s Amethyst. I think she’s soooo pretty. She rolled
And here’s Violet, who is also really pretty, although definitely has
a different face from her older sis.
This is usually the kind of picture where I put a joke about the
younger child asking the older child why they aren’t playing, but
instead I’ll just say Plum is still working on his skills and Violet gets
to start on hers, because I’m feeling boring at the moment. :P
Slate growls at Eggshell for using “his” doghouse. Not really
conducive to puppy-producing there, Slate. Be a little nicer, would
True Love: mopping up your husband’s pee puddle even while he is
being scared for the second time by your family’s ghost dog.
Amethyst heads off to work in education (I think – forgot to
write it down), while the younger two work on their own
Now that all three kids are school-aged, it’s time to have the
headmaster over. Everything goes well and Amethyst, Plum, and
Violet get into private school.
“Dad, these ghosts are out of control! I’ve been scared more times
than I care to count since I turned into a kid!”
“Sweetie, trust me, you don’t need to tell me that.”
“What’s the deal with them?”
“I wish I knew . . . I wish I knew . . .”
Even as a teen, Amethyst still loves to play fetch with Eggshell.
Plum and Violet both have 10 neat points, so they race downstairs
first thing in the morning after waking up to see who gets to clean
whichever dog beds are dirty. Neat little weirdos.
Timberwolf’s time has come. All of
the adults are there to see him off,
as well as Slate and Eggshell.
The sims find comfort in their
spouses, but the dogs just howl and
howl. Pet deaths are always so sad.
Violet begins maxing her skills and Amethyst comes home
from another day of work as an overachiever.
Sky: “Well hello there, Plum! You’re
not trying to sleep, are you?”
Neon: “Chris, we hate you so much!”
Amethyst: “Not again.”
Ugh. The ghosts are relentless.
And, like her siblings before her, Violet gets initiated into childhood by
being scared by one of her ancestors. Sigh. It’s amazing these kids
aren’t constantly passing out.
Even when they’re not scaring someone actively, the ghosts like to go into
bedrooms where people are sleeping and make noise, waking the
sleepers up. Then they scare them.
Slate and Eggshell got their relationship high
enough to try for puppies, and it wasn’t long
before Eggshell was ready to have them.
Eggshell had four little
puppies: two smooth-
coated females named
Cornsilk, and two shaggy-
coated males named
Almond and Bisque. Even
though they’re all black, I
went with whitish names
to honor their mother
and hoped that maybe
they’d have some white
on them when they grow
Amethyst works hard and plays
hard. She continues in the
education career, but she finds time
to swing around Plum, who has free
time now that he’s finished his
skilling. She also likes to dance a
lot, harkening back to her great-
“Chris, we hate you so much! Your guts: we hate them. Boo!”
“Seriously? Can I never have a moment’s peace?!”
Having four puppies in the house is challenging. They always seem to
need to go when everyone’s in bed. Some of them occasionally go
outside, but some of them have picked one corner of the living room
to turn into a lake. The one solitary puddle is from a visitor being
scared by the ghosts. Sigh.
Mornings before school are free time, where I let the kids do
anything they want except jump on the bed. However, most of the
time they just want to hang out with each other. That’s sweet.
Plum’s birthday has come around. We’re getting very close to the
end of this generation.
Here’s Plum, a handsome young man. He rolled
Romance/Fortune as his combo.
The headmaster came just before the weekend, so the kids are
only now heading to private school for the first time. Hanging out
together in one room means that the obligatory uniforms picture
is nicely staged. Well done, kids.
Plum also gets a job in education along with his older sister, and
thanks to private school, he gets a promotion and is an
overachiever after his first shift. This definitely buoys his fortune
When they got home from work that day, both of the teens had
homework to do. Life is never easy for a potential heir or heiress, at
least not until they’re adults.
Chris maxed journalism while still waiting for law enforcement to
Violet maxed her skills fairly quickly and spends her free time
playing with the puppies. She looks a little disturbed by whatever
Cornsilk just did.
“Alright, team, we’ve all maxed our skills. Now you know what
we’re going to do?”
“Thanks for the pep talk, Plum.”
“Hey, what’s a brother for?”
Lime is really, really, really old. There’s only the barest sliver in his
life bar, so I let him retire and spend the last bit of his time at home
with his family and especially his wife.
Chris finally found a job in law enforcement! Now he can complete
his fourth LTW.
For some strange reason, Champagne grew up a few hours before
the other puppies, so she nuzzled her brothers and sister a couple
times. She has a bit of a white chest, brown markings, and a bobbed
tail from her mother, with black, sleek fur from her father. Her body
shape is kind of in between the two, although leaning a bit more
towards Eggshell’s. Interesting mix.
Finally the other puppies grew up.
From bottom right clockwise are
Almond, Cornsilk, and Bisque. Bisque
is the only one with Slate’s longer
ears and no white whatsoever, while
Almond is the only pup with a curled
tail. Cornsilk is an extremely solid-
As an adult, Bisque immediately gets into a growling match with
his dad over nothing apparent. I know Slate’s a bit territorial, but
it looks like he passed that on to one of his sons.
Did you forget about the awfulness of
the ghosts for one second? Well, we
can’t have that happening. They’re
awful, by the way. Truly. And they
really hate Chris and scare him more
than anyone else. I have no idea why,
but I really pity the poor guy.
Now that he’s retired, Lime spends most of his time with Ericka, being
romantic. He’s secondary romance and she’s primary, so they roll up
lots of wants for each other.
Having six dogs in the house, four of
them almost completely
untrained, is a real hassle. Instead of
playing around, the kids end up
shouldering a lot of the burden of
training and cleaning up after them.
Of course, neat little Violet envies
that Amethyst got to clean the pet
You guys, Bisque is a total jerk.
He’s constantly picking at
Slate, and eventually cows him. On
top of that, he growls at poor Mr.
Ramirez, who’s just happy that he
met someone new. Huh.
Anyway, Bisque is like an

keeps, but I cautioned her against
Chris is now Captain Hero! His next LTW is to be Hall of
Famer, but he didn’t reach it in time.
Speaking of time, Lime’s has come. He got a good send off
from Grimmy and the girls, but none of his family was there to
see him go. This wasn’t from a lack of trying, though . . .
All six dogs had to run up the stairs first, blocking all the sims
trying to come up at the same time. The dogs made it up but
Ericka just missed seeing her husband go. Sad.
There isn’t time to get too down
for too long, because Violet’s
birthday, and thus the end of
my turn, has arrived. Everyone
is there to celebrate her . . .
everyone except Lime, that is.
Still, he is remembered, if at
least only for his will.
Here’s Violet, who is a very lovely girl. She looks quite a bit like
her mother. She rolled Popularity/Knowledge.
That’s the end of the story for this generation of Hues.
Check back next time to see which of these three lookers is chosen
as heir, which of the dogs gets kept, whether the ghosts will be as
mean to Haleigh as they were to me, and just how the Hues
progress in general. More than halfway done, baby!
