Previously, on the Valentine Legacy...
Derek, Meredith and Preston went to college and all three of them graduated, making Temperance a permaplat sim. Derek romanced every girl in sight and went back home to start the Bachelor Challenge. Meredith fell in love with a very nice man named Alec, and she changed her aspiration to Family before they got engaged and she graduated with honors. Preston graduated with honors after getting engaged to his college sweetheart Melissa, and is now back home waiting to start the A to Z adoption challenge.
And now, let's see what happens back at the Valentine Manor!
This is adult Meredith. Pretty, isn't she? She looks a lot like her mom, and I love her style, very undead-chic.
The first autonomous action of Meredith's was to run to Lestat's grave and mourn his death. They were very close, and she was devastated to see her old pal wasn't there to welcome her back home. She also promised him she'll try to kill Joe for him, but I chose to ignore that one.
Okay, Mer? You have dogs, we don't need you making wolf friends. We really, really don't.
I see you've finally noticed Lestat's spam. Vik is not as evil as his father, but he's getting there. And Mer is determined to help him.
Post-makeover Alec is having a nice chat with Joe.
"You're so lucky he's dead, son. He tried to kill me countless times, and I know he'd have done the same to you. Keep an eye on Viktor though, in case he follows his footsteps."
Oh, Joe. You're never gonna get over him, are you?
This is the new house. Nice, isn't it? Joe brought in some cash, and they're all working, so we could afford windows and everything! That's a first in Valentine Manor, it's very, very exciting.
And soon it was time for our not-so-little Meredith to marry her Alec!
All together now: Awwwwww!
May you two be very happy and give me some vampire heiresses to work with. Because I just realized Mer has 50% of #4 skin genes, and Alec has #4 skin, so I made my life a bit harder there when it comes to the genetic part of this Legacy.
The whole family was there cheering for our golden couple, even Melissa. Except for Preston and Joe, who look like they wanna tell me something.
In the middle of the wedding, Angie started glowing! And I caught it on picture! I'm proud of myself.
Aww, look at her! The third generation of the doglacy is here! I named her Elizabeth, to continue with the Vampire theme and all.
Cute little Lizzie, I hope you inherit some of your mother and grandmother's weird genes.
And now, back to the wedding!
They look so happy, don't they? Aww.
Tempe was thrilled (deep inside, as always) to have her three kids home again. They talked for a very long time, and she really had a hard time letting the boys go.
Congratulations on the great party! Now, get back from the honeymoon soon so we can start working on that heiress, okay?
Here he is, the new HeirSpouse. Well, aren't you a cutie pie, Alec. He dreams of being chief of staff, so I guess he won't be helping me get another job reward. Seems to me like the Valentine girls like their doctors quite a lot.
And here's CopMeredith! Go get those meanies, Mer!
We didn't have much room in the house, so we had to say goodbye to Angelique. But Preston bought her, so she'll be in good hands. By the way, Pres, you need some new clothes.
Alec is cute and smart, but he's not famous for his table manners.
And Mer has been working out a lot lately, a law enforcement woman needs to stay in shape!
Looks like the third generation is on the way! Vampire genes, please, please do show up.
Well, look who's taking after his dad! Yes, that's Joe's side he's sitting on. And yes, he did wait till Tempe went to bed.
Mer can't hide her surprise when she woke up with a very cute belly. Third generation, here we come!
Well, well, well. Look who's handsome even as an elder! Congratulations, Joe, that's what I call growing up well!
And you know, if Lestat hasn't gotten you yet, he probably never will.
"Must protect the heiress... must not let Alec in... must protect Meredith..."
Aww, Lestie flashback. Alec came home from his night shift and found the couch ready for him to sleep on.

And of course, I didn't get any of my wishes. For Mer gave birth to twins, and none of them had the Vampire skintone.
Meet Christina Valentine, who has one of the cutest baby sim faces I've ever seen. She has her mom's custom hair and her dad's brown eyes. Such a cutie she is. And she's named after Dr. Christina Yang, who is a very cool namesake.
And this is her brother George Valentine, named after the recently not-so-cool Dr. George O'Malley. Georgie has his dad's red hair and his mom's bright green eyes.
So, in short, my reward for being a nice simmer was a labor resulting in two spares. Great.
Because I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that the vampire skin tone, being custom, is dominant, so Chris having the #4 maxis skin would mean she has no vampire skin genes, and so she wouldn't be a suitable heiress if I want the skin tone to get to the 10th gen.
Oh, well, there's time for more babies. *crosses fingers again*
And now, as a see-you-soon gift, I present you Elizabeth, the weirdest and scariest looking dog to inhabit the house so far. Make me proud, Lizzie, and be as evil as you look.
And that was all for the 5th chapter of the legacy!
Will Chris and George grow up to be cute? Will Mer and Alec give me a vampire heiress? Will Viktor plot the murder of Alec as his father did with Joe? Will I go insane in this overcrowded house? Will I ever get tired of naming babies after Grey's Anatomy characters? Will I regret not naming Meredith after my absolutely favorite character (Addison Montgomery) if I never get a suitable heiress?
The answers, as always, in the next chapter of the Valentine Legacy!
