Eternally Yours · Generation 1

Chapter 1.1

Hiya!  I’m Lydia.  Don’t ever call me that!  My friends call me Liddy and I want you to call me that, too.  I grew up in Appaloosa Plains with my dad Basil.  I never met my mom Morgan but my dad says she was an evil witch ( my word, not his) of a woman.  My dad was a human and since I’m a fairy I guess my mom must have been one, too.  That’s about all I know about her though.  She gave birth to me and before the ink was even dry on my birth certificate she was gone.

For as much fun as I have as a fairy, there is one really awful thing.  I live a really, REALLY long life.  Most people I talk to don’t see why that is a curse.  Unfortunately, I outlive everyone I love.  By the time I turned 10-year-old, my father had aged 50 years.  He died three weeks before my eleventh birthday.  Since I aged so slowly and everyone else aged normally, my father’s friends and family had all passed away, too.  Some nice social worker came and collected me and took me to the orphanage.

It wasn’t all bad at the orphanage, though.  It’s where I met Victor.  Victor is now my boyfriend.  He is also 83 years younger than me.  Weird, huh?!  We look the same age but it’s only because I am a fairy.  Victor is nearing middle age, which is sad because it means I will outlive him, too.

Victor is also a witch.  Did I mention the orphanage was for “otherworldly” kids?  Yeah, it was pretty awesome.  So anyway, enough about that.

When we were old enough, Victor and I moved to Moonlight Falls.  We heard that they were more accepting of supernatural folk there.  Victor and I live together in a pretty normal house.  Upstairs there are a couple bedrooms, an office, and a game room.

Our basement is full of old stuff that we collected from consignment shops.

Oh, and the basement has a secret passage to my alchemy lab.  I am currently a level 5 alchemist.  I am trying to make living doing it but it’s not going so well.  Don’t tell Victor!  He’s working really hard as a teacher and I want to pull my own weight, too.

So anyway, that’s our life right now.  I promise not to ramble so much next time.  And I won’t be so formal.  I just really wanted you to get to know us.  Maybe I will even let Victor talk from time to time.  Who knows.  Well, bye!

  1. That Victor has a bit of the Tom-Hiddleston-as-Loki about him (not a bad thing at all, IMO). And oh, I like Liddy! I also like that you went right to the thing I’ve always felt bad about re: fairies–they live so long, they go through so much more grief than other Sims. It’s a bittersweet life state in that way.

    1. I know! I didn’t intend for him to come out that way but I was quite pleased when I was finished.

      And Liddy is such a spit-fire. She is so full of snark that I just love her!

      I did have to touch on the lifespan. It just didn’t seem fair that the fairies will see so much loss in their lives. It’s catching up to the later generations, too…but I won’t spoil anything for you!

  2. I like the beginning of your story! I’m always curious about the founder’s past when starting reading a new legacy. Liddy and my founder Kate had a similar childhood. Kate grew up in an orphanage in Appaloosa Plains as well, however, there were no fairies there 🙂 It will be fun reading a supernatural focused legacy!

  3. I’ve had this on my list of things to read for way too long. Now I must speed run it before stupid Photobucket ruins everything. Here we go!
