Generation 1: Snow White “I’m wishing for the one I love to find me today”
Founders have humble beginnings, so what’s better than Snow White? To start, create Snow White. When Snow White becomes a young adult, this story begins.
– Must be female
– Must have 7 children (dwarfs)
– Each child must have one bad trait (e.g Gloomy)
– Each child must have the same baby daddy
– Each child must complete their Aspiration and/or get an A in school
– Snow may never answer the door to strangers or talk to elderly women
I am delighted to introduce this lovely lady. Her name is Eira Rossini and she was given an uneasy task of being a legacy founder.
She was named after Eir, a goddess of healing and medicine in Norse Mythology. Eira also means “snow” in Welsh, so I consider it a perfect name for this particular Sim. Her surname is inspired by Italian composer Gioachino Rossini. I picked it because it souds nice and I felt like nice musical surname is great for this legacy, since music and singing is something all Disney Princesses have in common.
Eira’s traits are: Good, Neat, Music Lover (naturally) and they are pretty much inspired by character of the actual Snow White – she just loved cleaning that little cottage, didn’t she? Only someone with Neat trait can be that happy while sweeping. Her Aspiration is Big Happy Family, which seems to me as a very practical aspiration for someone who is going to end up with seven kids… Let’s see how it works!
Despite being in a Princess Legacy, poor Eira is treated like any other Legacy founder: an empty lot and the Knight of the Octagon Table is all she’s got.
But look at her, she appears to be okay with that. She is probably happy to be far away from her evil stepmother (rumours have it that Good and Evil sims don’t get along very well).
A few seconds after appearing on her new lot, Eira found out she is quite… short on money. Luckily, she is a modern princess, not some kind of medieval damsel in distress and she can handle this. So she went and explored the beautiful nature around her new home.
Eventually, she obtained Citrine and a leaf frog. After selling those, her funds were higher. She earned 85 simoleons. Yay! But unfortunately, not enough to buy a shower. So she tried her luck with fishing in a nearby pond.
Unfortunately, it was not a fish, but some kind of hydrophytic junk… or maybe a mermaid’s wig, who knows? But Eira didn’t give up. She waited patiently for another hour. For two hours. And then, when she was ready to let it go, she felt the pull again. And this time, it was a fish! But it was only a teeny tiny minnow and it didn’t earn a lot of cash. Definitely not enough for a shower.
And then she saw a stranger passing by.
“Hello there, fine gentleman,” she approached, “how’s your day?”
“Fine gentleman?” Geoffrey Landgraab was amused.
“Well, are you not?” Eira hesitated, “Because I could use some help…”
“In that case, let’s see what I can do for you, miss.”
“The thing is… somehow… I’ve just found out a couple of hours ago that I am not very rich. In fact, I can hardly buy basic furniture. So, I was thinking, maybe you can give me some advice, you know. How to get some money.”
“That’s easy,” said Geoffrey quickly, “Find a job!”
‘Of course! A job! Why didn’t I think of that?’ Eira was enlightened.
“That is a wonderful idea, sir! Thank you for your help.” she said, happy to have a plan. Geoffrey wasn’t sure if she was serious or just super-sarcastic.
“But one more thing…. How do I get one?”
A young redhaired beauty appeared next to Geoffrey and said: “It is very hard for a young person to find a job today, you see? The employers want you to have tons of experience and…”
It must be hard to be born as YA straight from CAS.
“That’s nonsense,” Geoffrey stated, “I don’t know, what parallel universe are you living in, Gabriella, but in this world, everyone, regardless of age and gender can find a job anytime they like.”
He turned his face back to Eira: “Don’t worry, miss. Getting a job is very easy. You don’t need anything but your phone. Now go on and give it a try!”
‘So, let’s see…. so many offers. I should probably pick the one with the highest salary, right? That would be a reasonable thing to do in my life situation. But, I don’t think I would like to be a tech guru, I don’t even have a computer… Oh, and what is this? Isn’t it. Oh, yeah, yeah. This wil do. This is just perfect for me!’
And so, Eira got a job in Entertainer career. Let’s hope she won’t regret it!
Time to practice!
Well. After hearing Eira’s attempts to play the violin, I regret the decision. I should have made her a painter….
After her little violin session, Eira decided it’s time for dinner. And since she has no counter to prepare a real meal, she settled for the yoghurt. But whatever. Yoghurt is fine. And free. And it magically appears in Eira’s fridge whenever she opens it. Now, isn’t that great?
And then, it was finally time to sleep. Eira was a bit afraid to sleep in the middle of wild nature, but as you can say from the color of her plumbob, she was too exhausted after her first day to resist the brand new bed I bought for her. I am sure she will be safe. I mean, her musical talent probably scared all the wildlife (and the neighbors) away.
And this is how Eira’s “house” looks like right now. Nothing fancy, but things will get better, right?
