Chapter 7: … the Little Princess!

04-09-15_8-07 PM-2

Meet Melia Rossini, firstborn daughter of Adrian and Eira and (due to succesion laws of this legacy) a very likely candidate for a heiress.
Meaning of the name Melia (pronounced me-lee-ah) is “ash tree”. (Name Cinderella comes from italian word for ash, but I couldn’t find a name with that meaning so ash tree will do) Oh, and Melia is also the name of one of the honey-nymphs who were nurses of infant Zeus.
Okay, I guess that’s enough commentary on meaning and origin of the name 😀
Let’s go back to the story.

As expected, everyone was in love with this little girl. She was a lovely little lady. Eira couldn’t stop cuddling her and I did understand. Melia was cute and very calm baby, she hardly cried (only when her diapers were dirty).04-09-15_8-16 PM-2

Castor liked his new sister as well. He was being such a sweet kid, he was always the first one to shoosh her when she cried and he even had a happy moodlet from having a sibling!  How cute! I’ve never seen that happy moodlet before, I only saw the angry and the sad one.


Beside entertaining his sister, Castor also played a lot of video games and looked for some collectives and drew pictures… he was a busy kid, indeed. He was also keen to play the piano, but the rest of the family (and me) was not really happy about his attempts.

‘I better play violin really loud so no one would notice how untalented my little boy is.’

Eira may not be pleased with Castor’s music, but then again she is apparently untalented in the kitchen. After days of surviving on yoghurt, she felt like her family deserves something better and she decided to cook an actual meal. Since they don’t own a stove, garden salad was the only option, so she gave it a try. And it turned out to be… not the most delicious garden salad in the world:

“Eww, this makes me vomit more than a morning sickness.”

How hard one has to try to fail to cook a garden salad? I mean, you only need to chop vegetables to make it… Well, it’s back to yoghurt, I guess. Thank Watcher that no one in this family is lactose intolerant.

But time was passing by very quickly and three days of Melia’s babyhood were soon over. So she jumped out of that restricting bassinet, ready to conquer the world with her elegance and fine manners.

“Look at my dress, my dress is amazing…”

She took after her father, I guess. She has Adrian’s eye color for sure and his skin tone, too. And partially his personality because I gave her the Neat trait as expected (representant of Cinderella has to be neat and foodie according to rules.) She rolled the Artistic Prodigy aspiration just like her brother.
First thing to do: say hello to Blarffy.

“Listen to me, Blarffy. I was a little baby yesterday and today I can walk and talk and draw and clean… How cool is that?”

They had a nice talk about perks of being a Sim. Melia felt like they were friends for ages and Blarffy was such a good listener.
Then, Melia decided to draw something. She wanted to show everyone that she is just as talented as her awesome mom, Eira.

“Look, I’m drawing a picture of our –>house<–!”

Oh, the irony!
After finishing her masterpiece, she finally got to meet her brother Castor.

C: “Oh, I see you’re getting accustomed to family traditions well, Melia.”                            M: “Yeah, I’m so ready for my first yoghurt!”

As the evening approached, Melia needed a place to sleep, so it was time for another house makeover! Let’s see what out limited budget allowed us to do.

It looks like an actual house from the front. Yay!

04-09-15_9-28 PM-2

But it’s still very provisional.

But at least they have a roof over their heads (and yoghurt in their stomachs). And kids love the idea of sleeping inside.


“Our new house is so pretty! Like a dollhouse.”

Next day, it was Melia’s first day in school. She was a little worried, but Castor was there to calm her down.

“Don’t worry, sis, you’ll be alright. But make sure you won’t trip over something, get pantsed or pee yourself. Because, you know, everyone is gonna remember what happened on the first day.”

That is a very wise advice, Castor. Really encouraging. (Look at his malicious joy ! )

‘I should have stayed in the bassinet.’

But she came home with a smile, so everything went well, I guess. Although it was probably a little boring because Melia’s fun meter was turning yellow. So she took up some fun activities…

What can be more fun than mopping the grass….

Castor wanted to do his homework as soon as possible so that he could play blickblock for the rest of the day. But it was taking so long he started to do his “I’m-going-through-so-much-pain” face.

*sigh* Homework sucks.

Eira loved her kids and she loved to see them grow up. She loved how lively and independent they became. And she loved to spend time with them and to hear about their little accomplishmets (although they were sometimes… weird.)


M: “Mom, I found an one-eyed monster under my bed yesterday!”     E: “Eh, you sure did, honey.”

But she missed the days when they were cute little babies, with tiny toes and chubby cheeks. She really wanted to have another baby. Adrian was okay with that.
But much to everyone’s surprise, Eira failed to concieve. She was devastated by those news. She felt like her body betrayed her. She always thought she was meant to be a mother. A mother of many. Having a big family was all she ever wanted. Without it, her life seemed… pointless.


What am I supposed to do with my life?

Poor girl.

    Oh! I might have to steal (borrow?) the name Melia for my tree-names! (I might use Ash, too or instead, which is a neat name…)

    Aw. Eira looks soo, soo sad. Poor girl.

    Love your captions! And I really love the little tidbits you throw in, like what the names mean!

      Of course, feel free to use it, I will be honoured! 🙂 I think it’s a great name: it’s pretty, but unusual – my favourite kind of a name. It would probably comply with Boughs’ naming policy very well.

      I am glad you like those name information. I love names and I love naming my Sims . But I was really worried that I am getting carried away by my naming passion. Hope it’s not too much. 🙂

        I love your names–I especially love all of the mythology that you include. It’s really interesting for me! (I’m a bit of a folklore/mythology geek!)

        There’s a reason I have a baby name book next to my computer. Naming sims is half the fun and I love knowing the whys for others naming choices. 🙂 this is my first Disney legacy so I’m curious how it will go, but I’m enjoying it a lot so far.

        Yes! Finally a name-freak like me 🙂
        I don’t have a book, I just browse multiple sites with baby names (and my FB thinks I’m an expectant mother, so it offers me ads about diapers and breast-feeding. It’s a nice way to make my boyfriend freak out 😀 )
        Anyway, welcome here and thank you for dropping a line 🙂

        To be honest, I’m old, I bought the book back in high school before the internet was an everyday thing. Considering how much use its gotten, it was an excellent purchase and my Facebook doesn’t (often) think I’m expecting.

    Yay they have a house! I see that Melia is getting started on the cleaning early lol!

    I must say I’m so impressed by the amount of thought you put into their names. I’m always so unprepared and just panic (one would think the pregnancy would be a good hint for me to look up names, but nope!)

    Your comment about your facebook thinking you’re expecting was hilarious!

      I actually used to be unprepared, too. I used to spend half an hour thinking about the name when the game asked me to name my babies. But naming policy helps me with that, because it reminds me to think about names in advance 🙂

    I love the naming scheme and background info too! I wish I would’ve planned out the names for my Johnson legacy better — at first I was using family names, but gen 3 screwed that up and I never really when back. I’m a naming geek, but I tend to put off naming til the absolute last second and then panic and choose a random name…*sigh* I need to plan better. xD

      Yes, my succesion laws are traditional, firstborn and strict matriarchy. I thought it would be easier to know the heir since they were born, because of all the mandatory traits and aspirations.
