Aaaah cover art!
In which College happens, Lydia investigates, and Nymea demonstrates that she is just as awful as her parents.
WTF is an embed, Slideshare? Do you even know? Why are you so goddamn unfriendly? WTF is your fascination with linkedin
why are you such a butt trying to make me give my location...
If you find any Slideshare problems, please point them out! This is honestly probably the last slideshared chapter, I can't be having with leaving for 9 months and then them overhauling the whole site...
Someday, somehow, I will get the embed right on the first try. Of course, the fact that either Slideshare or Livejournal changes their interface between chapters tells me I need to start producing them faster...
Also, if my math is right, this is my sixth Legaversary! Approximately. I've forgotten the exact date I started playing (it was sometime in the summer after Junior Yea of High School) and I know my first upload to the Exchange was sometime in late August of 2008, but all records of that are, of course, gone. So I'm just going to say that my Legaversary is approximately twelve to sixteen days into August from now on. Screw it, it's just the 13th. I can remember that.
Ahem. Like I said, this is the first chapter of 2014, and the first college chapter. Who knows, I might even get through another one within a reasonable time frame.
In any case, do you like my new cover art? It was about time for something newer than the same 10 pictures of the burning tree tortured in GIMP so that they looked different. That up there is me learning to use the gradient and draw vectors tools... but not the color replace tools. *Shrugs*

So here, have a long stretch of elfy goodness. Extra long, in fact - this might be in the running for my longest proper chapter.
Missed Memoria, Part 4?
Onwards to 1.9 Bad Company
Summary: Five generations of elves who have migrated from another world, Elphemerea, will have to learn to deal with the modern world in Riverblossom Hills and the surrounding area, while remaining true to their heritage and traditions. Meanwhile, I get progressively better at photoshop.
Generation One: Haldir
The story as a whole is rated PG for swearing, some violence, some sexual situations. Individual warnings are largely on the chapters themselves.
Generation One: Haldir
Chapter One: Arrival.
Chapter Two: Off to See the Wizard
Chapter Three: Domestic Bliss
Chapter Four: The Three Musketeers, part 1
Midina's Interlude: If it Makes You Happy
Chapter Five: The Three Musketeers, Part 2
Chapter Six: The Three Musketeers, Part 3
Chapter Seven: Sisterly Love
Eluisa's Interlude: Memoria Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4,
Chapter Eight: Friends Like These.
Chapter Nine: Bad Company
Chapter Ten: Tremors
Chapter Eleven: Graduand (Part 1), Graduand (Part 2)
Chapter Twelve: Sophomoric
Chapter Thirteen: Fresh Meat*
Chapter Fourteen: Senioritis
Zaliander's Interlude: Hubris
Chapter Fifteen: Cum Laude
* Note: The entirety of Shadows Fall takes place during Fresh Meat, and though it's not germane to the main legacy, I recommend reading it. At least before you read Cum Laude. It will probably update before the next legacy chapter anyway... as I'm doing simblreen again, for 2016. :D
Can't wait for the next chapter? Check out some official fics for the Elven Heritage Legacy. (Note: I haven't been putting a lot of these up recently.)
Download the Elves: This will be up and running when I start graduating this batch from college, and sort my geneticized skins. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I'm currently looking for better versions of the old Enalya pixie skins and for eyes where they've got the corners from Anva's Sclera, but no vast black gaps above when sims open their eyes wide.
Be warned though - along with all the cute family drama, this chapter's taken a darker turn. In fact, I've done something for it that I haven't done for any chapter before - given it that "Are you fourteen, at least?" warning, mostly for:
1) Adult Locations
2) Unrecognizable innnuendo.
And it's all in one scene, too. It's towards the end...
On a much happier note, Merry Christmas everyone! If you're offended by that, please form a line behind Scrooge ->
(Or accept my "Vague benefaction for a winter holiday," which somehow doesn't have the same ring to it.)
Oh, and you all get virtual cookies. Gingerbread men are another thing that takes far too long.

Oh, and by the way, you in the southern hemisphere, it's hot up here.

Continue to: 1.4 The Three Musketeers (Part 1)
Oh, and though there are references to the Princess Bride and the Lord of the Rings in there, along with the Wizard of Oz stuff that comes with the title, they're very oblique and probably could only be picked up by one who is as obsessed with The Princess Bride as I am. Or maybe I just remember thinking about the similarities there while writing this. Ah, well: four days to the Legaversary.

Continue to Chapter 1.3: Domestic Bliss
Warning: Pictures are
closer than they appear large format, but low quality. But really, it's the beginning of a legacy, so there's not that much to see.
Onwards to Chapter 1.2: Off to See the Wizard
And because of technical issues that delayed one scene, I am finally able to present to you your new chapter, made possible by constant backups, creative license, and simPE installed properly the second time.
That said, no one reads these, so onward:
