I came to Dronningslund to be enrolled in one of the best private colleges in the country in the hopes of becoming a general surgeon. I had an urge to help people, to save lives, as many as I could. I was tired of the nightmares I’ve had since I was a boy, unable to do anything about my mother and feeling helpless, and most of all, useless. No doctor could save her, of course, nor did any try, but I hated knowing that I had so many opportunities to try and stop my father from murdering her and abandoning Camilla and I. Had I just been a little stronger, had I been smart enough then to realize the hate in his eyes, all the anger and sadness, I could’ve maybe saved my mother’s life had I known what to say to my father before he left us. It was obvious just by looking at him that he had reached his whits end, driven by madness at the betrayal of both his wife and brother, but I didn’t realize his pain until it was too late. I could’ve done something, I felt that I was partially responsible for what had happened..

My uncle was in the hospital for a while after my father had shot him three times, I visited him a lot and he eventually made a full recovery, though he walks with a limp sometimes from one of the bullets shattering his knee. He decided to take in both Camilla and I and we lived with him, my Aunt Nina and my cousin, Kat, for a little while, though soon after him coming home from the hospital, him and Aunt Nina broke up and she took Kat with her. I guess Aunt Nina truly hated looking at him after knowing what he had done. We lived with her until my Uncle got out of the hospital, and once he did, it seemed as if she was gone just as fast as he had come back.

We got to spend time with Kat every other weekend when she came to visit her father, but he was still distant and cold, depressed a lot, drinking heavily.. It was sad seeing him like that, so Kat and I spent a lot more time together than her and her father. I didn’t find out for a long time why this all happened, but, a little after my thirteenth birthday, the more I thought about it, the more questions came to mind and I went to him for answers. Why my father felt the need to kill my mother, why they were all at the same scene together, why my father shot him.. After hitting puberty, everything made a lot more sense when pondering it all in my head than what I had been told, and I felt that everything that had been said to me years ago was a lie.. None of it made sense, none of it explained why my father had gone so mad.. But then, my Uncle had finally told me everything, everything my father wanted him to tell me and it didn’t take me long to find a new definition of hate for my Uncle. For years, I had hated my father, I never knew why any of this had happened because I was too young to understand, then I found out that I was hating the wrong person that whole time.. I had ripped up and threw out the note my father had left the moment after I read it, but now I understood why he wrote it in the first place. I still haven’t been able to forgive him for taking my mother from me, even despite what she had done behind his back, and mine, but at least now I understood everything. I was finally told the truth. I then found out that Camilla wasn’t my actual sister, but my half-sister, and I had also found hate for my mother, as well, just from that one fact.. How could any man keep their sanity after being shown such deceit? 

Screenshot-44

Despite the hate I had for my Uncle, I stayed under his roof until I was eighteen, working my ass off at school, focusing all of my energy on my education so that I could get scholarships, so that my determination and my will to become a doctor would be noticed and I could get that much closer at being able to help people. Kat and I had always stayed close, so she worked hard as well, but in a more artistic way, doing theatricals and also getting into the same school I was in. She practiced dancing mostly, though ballet was her favorite. She was the captain and choreographer of the ballet course and I enjoyed going to the plays she would put on for the school every year,  the only thing that I hated about it was sometimes her outfits would be a lot more inappropriate than needed and I hated seeing her in them whenever I’d pick her up from her rehearsals. She turned out to be a lovely young woman, though I think she enjoyed showing her looks off a little too much.

It’s our third year in college now and we live off campus within the town. I share a townhouse with Kat, Camilla, and our best friend, James, that we met first year here. He’s a really nice guy, well-mannered, humble, but a little clumsy sometimes. James is trying to become a doctor like I am, so we have a lot of the same classes together, which makes it somewhat difficult to focus, but somehow I still manage. Camilla graduated high school early and although she shouldn’t technically be in college yet, she managed to get into our college, too, by working as hard as Kat and I. Kat and Camilla don’t get along, they never truly did, anyways.. It’s hard living with them under the same roof, but thankfully, Camilla is an exchange student, and she studies abroad in Europe, mostly France. She only visits about two or three times throughout the school year, and although I missed her and wished that I could see her more often, it’s better for her to be in France, away from Kat and away from the drama that is all of our lives. I’m happy for her, she’s doing what she loves, and that’s all I ever wanted for her to do.

It’s been hard for me to make any other friends, though.. I’m too shy of a person to strike up a conversation with a stranger and I find myself uncomfortable at parties, and what’s worse was Kat was well aware of the fact.. But, she was just the opposite of me, she loved the party life and loved having fun and drinking, and I was coming home on this Saturday night to a Halloween party she was setting up.. I don’t even like Halloween, so that’s even more of a reason for me to dread coming home to a pumpkin decorated house.

I took a deep breath in as I walked home, smelling the ocean flowing through the canals within the town and I thought about how I wish I had my bathing suit in my backpack so I could go swim in the clean, crisp waters. I loved swimming, and no matter how hot or cold any water was, I loved being in it. I was even a member of the Polar Bear Club for diving in the ocean at unspeakably low temperatures, but the act was thrilling and I do it once a year every winter. I loved the night, too, I’m a bit of a night owl and my favorite thing to do is swim under the black sky. I know of a small pond just outside of town that I go to religiously during the spring and summer and I float on my back for hours as I watch the stars. Nothing, and nowhere else, is better.

I got home and looked at the decorations on the outside, furrowing my brow a little towards all the pumpkins and I even hated looking at the scarecrow, starring at me, plotting my death. I knew he was.. I stared at him as I walked passed him, hating his stupid scarf and his creepy face.. I would push him over, but he’s Kat’s favorite decoration of the holiday and she’d kill me if anything happened to the scary bastard.

Screenshot-66

I picked up my pace a little and walked to the door, coming into the house and I shut the door behind me, seeing even more pumpkins and Halloween decorations within the foyer and the dining room and I sighed, wishing I could just take all of it and throw it in the dumpster out back..

The house was quiet on the first floor, but as I walked up the stairs to the second, Kat’s indie music that came from the living room filled my ears and I saw her setting up more decorations in her revealing costume. I tried to not look at her and sneak passed her, going to the stairs that led up to the third floor, but the first step I took up, Kat noticed me and she yelled over her music, “Ollie! Where have you been? Go put on your costume, people are going to be here any minute!” She exclaimed, following me upstairs and I rolled my eyes without her noticing.

“You know I have a class on Saturdays.. Besides, I don’t even have a costume to put on, and you know I hate Halloween.. And parties, and pretty much everyone at this school..” I replied.

“Oh my God.. Don’t be such a downer, just wear your ninja costume from last year! Who cares? There’s a lot of the girls from my ballet class coming, too, you should introduce yourself to some of them! They always talk about you in class,” she continued to try and persuade me.

“So?” I asked with little interest as I reached the third floor, walking passed Kat and James’ rooms to go to the last and final set of stairs, the ones that led to my room on the top floor.

“What do you mean ‘so‘? You haven’t even hooked up with anyone since we’ve been here! Who the hell does that, anyways? Sad people, that’s who.. People who need to focus a little less on school and have fun every now and then..” She mocked me as I continued up the stairs and to my bedroom door, walking in and tossing my backpack on the ground.

Screenshot-91

“Kat, I hate today. Why do you do this every year? It’s so annoying,” I replied with irritation, landing lazily on my bed and trying to drown her out.

“Please, Ollie? Even James is wearing a costume.. This is my favorite holiday and I want you to enjoy it with me.. It’s never a party without you, and I told a lot of the girls you were going to be here,” she whined and pleaded.

Screenshot-94
Screenshot-96

I let out a loud, aggravated sigh into my pillow before I answered her, “Fine.. But I’m not going to be down there long, I still have studying to do for a test on Monday,” I replied and I heard her let out an excited laugh.

“Yay! Alright, now get dressed and come downstairs!” She answered and I heard her leave my room, shutting the door behind her.

I laid within my bed for about half an hour, then getting up and I began my search for my ninja costume Kat had bought me to wear last year. I undressed from my school uniform and put on the itchy costume, already hating that I had agreed to wear it and I adjusted it in slight frustration, putting my mask on last. I could already hear the music a lot louder and clearer from the second floor all the way up here on the fourth and I could even hear people drinking and having fun at the party just starting.

Screenshot-123

I dreaded facing any of them, but I figured if I stay close to James, like I usually do at every party, maybe it won’t be so bad. He didn’t really care much for the parties at our place, either, but he liked making Kat happy like I did, he was just a little more willing than I was. He’s told me before that he has feelings for Kat, ever since he met her, actually, but the poor guy still hasn’t confessed to her and he punishes himself even more by seeing all the guys she hooks up with right under his nose, probably the only reason why he doesn’t like going to parties with her. I keep telling him to confess, but he’s almost just as shy as I am, and he feels like he has no chance with someone as wild and free-spirited as her. I hope one day he gets over that fear of being rejected, I think they’d make a cute couple if Kat ever decided to slow down her life and give ‘having a boyfriend’ a chance.

Screenshot-127

I left my room with a heavy sigh, going downstairs to the third floor and I went to James’ room, knocking on the door and seeing if he was still in there and hoping he was so I didn’t have to go down to the party alone. “James? You in there?” I asked through the door, listening for a few moments and realizing he wasn’t there. “Dammit..” I let out quietly, walking over to the stairs again and going down to the second floor.

Screenshot-129

The music was so loud that I could feel the ground vibrating just slightly, looking towards the living room and seeing a few girls in there, then looking to the other room and seeing Kat flirting with a guy leaning up against the wall, but still, no James..

Screenshot-132
Screenshot-137

The girls at this school were all beautiful, but boring.. All of them were the same, blonde-haired, blue-eyed Barbie’s and none of them really stood out. They all talked the same, acted the same, they all might as well have the same names and bar code numbers printed on their asses from being shipped out from the factory with a pink bow in all of their hair. I had remained in all-boy’s schools until college, so the co-ed campus was a change, though learning with girls now seemed like more of a nuisance than a blessing. The guys here were the same as the girls, too, most of them with the same looks, blonde hair, blue eyes, same attitudes.. The only thing that hasn’t changed much is that I still get bullied, but only when Kat isn’t around.. She had quite the pull around here since she was one of the blonde Barbie’s that walked the streets now..

Screenshot-139

I hated how almost all the people at this school looked down on the ones that were different.. They had rich parents, looked down their nose at everyone else, all of them were a little two-faced to some extent and it was hard to believe that any of them were actually friends with one another. Yet another reason why I didn’t like talking to them, not just from my shyness.. I guess Kat really did fit in, though, she was a lot like them and it was sometimes a little too much to be around her when she had those girls to feed off of. I was glad to have met James, though, the one guy I’ve found here to be different and I was glad to have a friend like him outside of Kat.

I ventured downstairs to the first floor, noticing James standing by the keg and I smiled behind my mask at the sight of him. Finally, someone I knew and actually wanted to be around.. I walked up next to him and I laughed softly at his cowboy costume, “Going to a rodeo?” I asked mockingly and he looked up to me with a gentle scoff.

“Shut up.. I couldn’t find a costume when Kat and I went to the Halloween store and she ended up picking this out for me..” He replied, taking a drink of his beer.

“Of course she did,” I said with another laugh.

“Whatever, you’re wearing a repeat costume, that’s a lot lamer than what I’m wearing,” he joked back with a grin.

“Well, I guess Kat dressed both of us, again this year,” I replied and we laughed together.

“Have you seen her around, by the way?” He asked, losing my grin slowly behind my mask.

“Yeah.. She’s upstairs in the beer pong room,” I replied, though I hoped he wouldn’t go upstairs to find her already flirting with the few guys that were here.

Screenshot-158

“Want a beer?” He asked after a long silence, looking to me and offering up his bottle, but I shook my head.

“Nah, I’m not in the partying mood..”

“Since when are you ever? I don’t even know why I asked..” He mocked and I rolled my eyes.

“I have to study for a Pathology test on Monday, and so do you, actually.. I don’t feel like drinking tonight, anyways.. I hate looking at all this Halloween shit.. I’ll probably go to my room in an hour and get yelled at by a drunk Kat at two in the morning when I’m trying to sleep and everyone’s gone,” I replied and he laughed.

“I’d rather her come to my room, I’m jealous that she always goes to yours whenever she’s drunk..”

“You wouldn’t know what to do with her anyways, you turn retarded or something when you’re around her,” I mocked back.

“No I don’t..” He replied quietly, looking to his beer and pouting just slightly.

Screenshot-158 (2)

“Yeah you do.. Remember the last party where you went to go bring her a beer and you ended up tripping right when you got to her and spilled it all over her? Or, during the same party, after you had spilled her beer on her, you then came back to apologize and did the same thing, but spilled your beer on her instead..” I pointed out and he opened his mouth to contest, but I stopped him and continued, “You weren’t even close to being drunk yet, too, so don’t even use that excuse..” I said with a grin he couldn’t see and he gave up trying to defend himself and he stood there sulking.

“Okay, well.. Maybe I’m not very smooth around her as I’d hope to be,” he admitted, “One day, though, I’ll know exactly what to say to her,” he continued with a sense of confidence, though it was something I’d have to see in order to believe..

I watched as he looked around the room, “Heads up, looks like those girls might come over here..” He pointed out as he took another sip of his beer and I looked around the room.

“What..? Who?” I asked nervously, but I answered my own question when I looked across the room and noticed a group of three girls looking at us. I sighed behind my mask when I saw the girls giggling to one another when they noticed us looking at them. “I should’ve just stayed in my room..”

“Why do you hate the attention so much? These girls drool over you and all you care about is school. Don’t you ever want to, you know, relieve some stress?” James wondered and I shrugged.

“I’m as successful with talking to girls as you are flirting with Kat,” I mocked and he gave me a sour expression, “Besides.. They’re all the same. What about any of them sticks out to you?” I asked and he looked back to the girls.

Screenshot-169
Screenshot-164 (2)

“Hmm.. I guess you’re right, they all are kind of the same,” he replied, finishing his beer and I watched as the girls giggled to themselves and began walking over towards us. I grew nervous and averted my eyes away from them, looking over towards the stairs and Kat came down them. James’ eyes lit up when he saw her and he pushed his empty beer bottle against me, forcing me to hold it, “Speaking of talking to girls, I’ll see you later,” he continued and I panicked a little. 

Screenshot-174
Screenshot-172

“Hey, wait, come on! Don’t abandon me now!” I pleaded in a harsh whisper, but he walked off quickly towards Kat and left me to deal with the clones walking over to talk to me.

Screenshot-174 (2)

“Hi, Ollie..” One girl said shyly with a smile.

“Hey, Oliver, I like your costume,” another mentioned and I smirked nervously, assuming they knew my name from Kat telling them, but I didn’t know any of theirs.

“Uhm.. T-Thanks..” I replied. I didn’t know what else to say.. My eyes danced all over, unable to keep them on any one person or object and I didn’t want to stare at them and be rude. There were two times out of the school year where we were allowed to wear outfits that weren’t our uniforms, Halloween and also the Formal Dance just before we get let out for the summer, and this holiday was the one where girls could dress like sluts and no one would think twice about it. I suppose I didn’t mind seeing more of their bodies rather than just their exposed legs from their school skirts, but, if anything, it only made them more intimidating to talk to. I preferred leaving things up to the imagination, and with some of their costumes, there wasn’t much left to imagine. I guess it was fun and exciting for them to be able to dress in something else that wasn’t their uniforms, but some of them indulged in the holiday a little too much..

Screenshot-178
Screenshot-180

I couldn’t even stand here without feeling awkward and with James gone and unable to help me out of this situation, I bailed on my own. “Can I get you a fresh beer?” One of the girls asked and I swallowed hard, feeling my Adam’s apple bob against the fabric of my mask that covered my neck.

“I, uhm.. I gotta take care of something,” I replied quietly, handing one of them the empty bottle James had forced on me and I walked away towards the foyer, going to the stairs and up to the second floor. 

Screenshot-182
Screenshot-184
Screenshot-199

I manged to sneak passed Kat’s watchful eye since James was distracting her and I continued my way upstairs until I got to the fourth and I escaped into my room. I shut the door behind me and sighed heavily, “I hate parties..” I let out quietly, reaching up and removing my mask and tossing it aside. I reached back and grabbed the costume by my neck, pulling it over my head and getting rid of the itchy fabric, then removing the bottoms to the costume and I tossed those aside as well, changing into a pair of sweat pants and sitting down on my bed.

Screenshot-202
Screenshot-209
Screenshot-218

It was so much more relaxing in my room and away from all those people.. To think that I would even last an hour down there was beyond me and I much more preferred to be alone than with people I didn’t know, nor wanted to know. Lying there on my bed was comforting, I wasn’t really in the mood to study anymore and all I wanted to do now was sleep, but I wasn’t tired yet and it was hard to think about sleeping when I could still hear the bumping of the music from the party happening below me..

Screenshot-186 (3)
Screenshot-193

After roughly ten minutes of lying there, I got up, walking over to my desk and sitting at my computer. I opened my laptop and began searching for resources that I needed in order to be ready for the test on Monday and I began studying like I didn’t want to, but what else was there to do now when it’s something I need to do and I couldn’t sleep?

Screenshot-226
Screenshot-268

I studied until about one in the morning, my eyelids finally beginning to grow heavy and I dozed off for a moment, but I was woken up by the quiet sounds of drunk footsteps on the stairs and I knew Kat was coming up. I sighed and waited, soon hearing her at the door and she barged in without even knocking.

“Ollieeeee! Wha- What are you doing?” She slurred a little and I watched as she flamboyantly pranced around my room. ” Oh my g- You’re studying? Really!? You didn’t even party with me be-because you were studying?” She continued and I sat there, swiveling around in my chair and watching her lay down on my bed.

“Kat, you’re drunk.. Just go sleep in your bed, why do you always insist on sleeping in mine?” I asked with annoyance as she rolled around on my sheets.

“Becauseeee.. Your bed is so much more comfortable than mine..” She answered, finding my pillows and beginning to pass out.

Screenshot-262

“Is everyone gone, at least?” I asked, hoping I didn’t have to go downstairs and break up the party.

“Uh-huh..” She replied, though she drifted off a little at the end.

“..Kat?” No response. “..Kat..” I tried to get her attention, though realizing she had passed out and I let out a heavy exhale.

Screenshot-244
Screenshot-249
Screenshot-256

I decided to call it a night, standing from the chair and I walked over to Kat, picking her up from my bed and I carried her out of my room and downstairs. It wasn’t a struggle to hold her dead-weight, but it was when venturing down the stairs. I did it as carefully as I could and luckily I made it to her room without dropping her or knocking her head into anything and opened the door. I stepped into her ballerina-themed room and over towards her bed, laying her down as gently as I could and I removed her cat ears, tail, and shoes before throwing the blankets over her. I watched her cuddle into her pillow and I was glad that I managed to get her to her own bed without a fight like she would give me most nights she got drunk and insisted in sleeping in mine. Thankfully, she passed out before there was time for her to argue with me.

Screenshot-290
Screenshot-293

As I looked down at her, I couldn’t help but wonder if there was a deeper meaning behind her need to sleep with men, both in the sense of sex and also just for the body to sleep next to. Her father was never truly there for her and she always craved his attention growing up, I wondered if she’s the way she is now because of him.. Not wanting to be alone, wanting to be wanted and wanting to be loved since she was never shown anything of the sort from her father.. I now had yet another reason to hate my Uncle. Sure, he was there for her, but only in the one aspect that he paid for her schooling and housing, but I don’t think I’ve ever even heard him tell her he loves her. I was spoiled like that, my parents always told me how much they loved me, but even I was a little jealous of her, because at least she still had her parents.. 

Screenshot-270
Screenshot-273
Screenshot-275

I finally stepped away from her bed and left her room, going down to the second floor and into the living room where the stereo was still blasting music and I noticed James was passed out on the floor. “How can you even sleep with this shit blasting in your ears?” I asked his unconscious body with a chuckle. I turned off the stereo and went over towards James, grabbing his wrist and pulling at him, “Come on, man.. Get up.. I can’t carry you like I can carry Kat..” I struggled to say as I pulled at him more and soon his eyes batted open.

“Ohhh, hey, maannn..” James said with a slur and he stood up, then fell into me as I put his arm around my neck to support him.

“Whoa! Come on.. Stand up and walk, let’s get you to bed.. How’s that sound?” I asked and he dragged his feet as his mind bobbed in and out of consciousness.

Screenshot-280
Screenshot-283

“Wh-Where’s Kat..? Is she.. Is she asleep already?” He asked as we walked towards the stairs, going up to the third floor and I helped him to his bedroom.

“Yeah, I just put her to sleep, too.. She’s okay, just drunk like you are,” I said with a chuckle and I threw him down onto his bed. 

“Th.. That’s good..” He replied softly and I smirked as I watched him pass out again and he was asleep within seconds.

“Night, Jimmy..” I said quietly and I turned off his lights before leaving his room. Finally, the party was over, everyone was either gone or in their beds, and I could finally get some sleep tonight without hearing the ambiance of a party I wanted nothing to do with. No more Halloween, and no more of these dreadful decorations.. I’ll make Kat take everything down in the morning and make her throw away all of these gross pumpkins so they don’t start to stink up the house. 

Screenshot-295
Screenshot-298

I went back upstairs to the top floor, looking to Camilla’s bedroom door, the room next to mine, and I was glad that she was going to be visiting soon from France. She was just as driven as me when it came to her education and she wanted to go to my college to be closer to me, and also to go to a school that had lots of potential. Ever since the truth was told by my Uncle, Katalina and Camilla had never really gotten along, though it was mostly Kat that had the problem with Camilla.. She hated knowing that her father had another daughter with another woman, my mother, and even though Gareth treated Camilla the same as he had treated Kat when raising her, she still held this immense hate for her. I had never asked her about it because the moment that Camilla gets brought up, Kat wants nothing to do with it, so it was always hard for me to figure out exactly why Kat hated her so much. But, after a long time trying to convince Kat to let Camilla live with us before she enrolled in the college, she finally agreed, though still didn’t like the idea at all. Kat made it clear that she was going to avoid her at all costs, or even move out, but in my opinion, she was being a lot more dramatic than she needed to be. Even though Kat and I were cousins, Camilla was still both of our sister in one aspect that neither of us agreed with or liked, but it wasn’t Camilla’s fault.. It was obvious that I accepted it more than Kat did, but maybe it was because we were both raised by a loving father in both of our early years, or, as loving as one could be..

I continued on, going into my room and shutting off all the lights but the one next to my bed, throwing myself down onto it and tucking my arms under my pillow, letting out one last large exhale as I lie there. My eyelids opened slowly, I was tired and wanted to sleep, but I still felt as if I couldn’t.. My mind was awake but my body was exhausted, though I didn’t know what to do to satisfy my erratic thoughts, the ones I have every night, wondering when I’ll finally be lucky enough to have a night where I can fall asleep without thinking about my past.

Screenshot-307

Slowly, I reached up, turning off the lamp which was my last source of light, shutting my eyes then and hoping I’d fall asleep soon.

  1. Hey, Ollie’s really cute! :) He looks a lot like Gareth though more so than Gibson! I feel really bad for him. I think he’s going to eventually snap too, lol. Well, it wouldn’t be an insane type of legacy if he doesn’t, right? LOL. I can’t wait to see what Camila looks likes! And Kat seems…interesting, lol. She looks a lot like Gareth too, although I can see her mother in her as well. Great update!!! You updated a lot sooner than I thought you would. I remember you mentioning it might be in the latter part of July or early August or something. :)

    • Glad you think so! He does look a lot more like Gareth, I think that’s just the stubble on his face that makes him resemble him more than Gibson XD He actually reminds me of Jason, like, a LOT. O_O hahaha
      Yeah, he’ll snap, who knows when, though. Wouldn’t be The Insane Dubois Legacy without the insanity ;D
      Camilla will show up soon most likely, maybe within the next few chapters. Hahaha yeah, Kat is.. A little unstable, to say the least. LOL She’s super outgoing and a huge party animal, she’s actually really really like her father as far as her personality.
      Yeah, I thought I was going to take a little longer to get this update out, too, but I finished this chapter a lot sooner than I thought I would, and editing the town to my liking didn’t take as long as I thought either hahaha I couldn’t wait to get the new generation started! XD
      Thanks for reading and commenting!

      • I like this town too. I’ve been seeing it all over Tumblr. I might download it myself and check it out after all. :)

        • Yeah! Haha the moment I saw it, it just seemed perfect for Oliver’s generation, I pretty much HAD to download it. XD It’s worth it, too! This town is by far my favorite one I’ve played in.

          • At first I wasn’t completely sold on it because I hadn’t seen any really good pictures of it, but you pretty much convinced me lol. And yeah, it’s always awesome when you’re doing a legacy story in a world that you really love. :D

  2. Just discovered this legacy recently and read through the first three generations. You have done a wonderful job with the story. And Kat looks like a split image of Nina, with blond hair!

  3. Yay! Generation 4! Congrats on your massive hit count number. You deserve it. ♥ Love your new banner at the top too. XD
    I love the new town you’re in! I enjoyed Lucky Palms too, but the change of scenery in Dronningsland is gorgeous! All the canals, and that sky, wow. Hehehe.
    I had to laugh when Ollie was describing how much Kat annoyed him with all her Halloween decorations, LOL. He’s so adorable. I’m not surprised Gibson’s child is a bit of a study-a-holic. XD I’m sure Gibson would be proud. Studying to be a surgeon, no less, how hot. *fans self* Ugh, and I haven’t even seen his face yet, I’mma die, LOL.
    Kat’s really gorgeous! I loved their conversation, it was so bitchy yet hilarious as well, LOL. Ahh, the ever annoying family member wanting to make sure you get laid. XD Usually matchmaking, but along the same lines, I feel, hahaha. I’m sure she’s doing it out of the goodness of her heart, Ollie does seem like he’s lonely, although, with his shyness, maybe he doesn’t mind that much?
    Mmmm… he looks fine in that ninja costume. I thought it funny that James *dies* what a hot cowboy, dammit I’m getting distracted, um, that he and Ollie both were ‘dressed by Kat,’ LOL. She did that typical girl thing where it’s like she wanted to have fun, so everyone has to participate, even if they hate it. Pahaha, you keep cracking me up right now, James and Ollie were pretty funny too when Ollie was making fun of him and how he can’t flirt with Kat very well. LOL, the clones. What a perfect way to describe them. A herd of girls walking over to a shy guy, that is scary. Hell, when a herd of girls walks towards me, it’s scary. ROFL. O_O
    OMG, his face! *collapses on the floor*
    Mmm…. shirtless, how absolutely perfect. I love him already, LOL, his hair, his eyes, that bod, he’s so perfect. Ugh I keep scrolling up and staring. *slaps self* If I don’t stop, I’m going to forget to publish this beautiful comment. O_O
    He’s so nice, taking care of both Kat and James. I feel sad for him that he seems to be tormented constantly by his past, that he can’t sleep because of the memories. I am glad that Gareth told him about it though, I think it’s even worse when family members keep stuff from each other, because it always blows up in their face somehow. :( Poor Ollie. *snuggles*

    • Thank you ^_^ Glad you like the new banner, too!
      Yeah, I really liked Lucky Palms, too, but I actually missed winter in the game and wanted a town that looked like it had different seasons rather than just the constant summer.
      Hahaha yes, you’re right, he’s a huge study-a-holic XD he always wanted to be as smart as his dad and to work hard to make him proud, and he still does that, even though he hasn’t seen Gibson since he left.
      Thanks! I’m glad you like Kat! :D she did turn out to be super pretty, didn’t she? Yeah hahaha Kat the “matchmaker” XD True, she’s just looking out for him and wants him to be happy with someone since it’s been so long since he’s been with anyone, but Oliver of course is completely turned off by the idea all the time since he’s so shy. But, you’re right, too, he sometimes doesn’t mind being alone.
      Haha yeah, neither boy really enjoys the holiday, but they do have to participate to keep Kat happy XD Glad you laughed a lot when they were talking, they enjoy complaining and mocking one another LOL And ikr? Ollie was having a little panic attack at the thought of talking to the girls, the best way to avoid it all-together was to bail bahahah
      LOL He’s such a cutie, isn’t he? I really love how he turned out as a YA.
      Yeah, Ollie’s a good guy and a good friend/relative to have, he’s pretty caring and likes helping others when they’re in need.
      True, the longer things are kept secret, the better chances it’s going to come back around eventually and it’s not going to be good. Gareth would’ve still kept it a secret though had Oliver not come to him for the truth.
      Thanks for reading and commenting :D

  4. Congratulations on the views. Well deserved! :) Ollie seems like a cool character, and the new town is very nice. I’ve never seen it before and I might go looking for it now.
    Like the house they’re in. Did you build it yourself or was it included with the world?
    Congrats again! Can’t wait for more! :)

    • Thank you! :D
      I’m glad you like Ollie, as well as the new town! There’s a link to it on my Credits page if you want to download it. And no, I didn’t build the house, it was already built within the town :D
      Thanks for reading and commenting!

  5. :D So excited that the fourth generation has started! I love how you always don’t reveal what they look like till later in the chapter. I try to patiently wait, knowing that when it’s finally revealed I’ll turn into a pile of mush. Which of course happened when I saw Ollie!! O_O Wow. . .

    Poor guy! Grew up part of the time not knowing exactly what happened and then he finds out the truth. I’m surprised he didn’t flip out when he found out why Gibson killed his mom and then shot Gareth up. I’m glad he’s able to see past it though with Camilla. Too bad Kat isn’t as forgiving.

    I like that you’ve kept the three of them together! It will be interesting to see what happens withe all of them while they’re there. Poor James. I’m rooting for you, James!!! lol!

    Love, love, love the town! It’s so beautiful! It looks like an old European town to me. Magnificent! And the townhouse, awesome!

    So excited to see what lies ahead for Ollie and company!

    • So happy you’re excited for it! I am too :D I have a lot planned hahaha
      Thanks, I really like the whole ‘face reveal’ thing, it’s so fun! I’m glad I started it and I’ll keep it going ^_^ Glad you like how Oliver turned out, too ;D
      Well, the news didn’t go over well, that’s for sure. I might do a flashback for a few different scenes I want to cover more of, but we’ll see how it goes. Yeah, he was used to Camilla being his sister before he knew the truth, so he still saw her as that, whereas Kat never grew up with her or got to know her like he did. Well, she might even have still ended up hating her if she had XD
      I really do like keeping siblings involved with one another, or at least some of them. It makes for more story, too, and things to work off of if I ever get caught or run out of ideas hahaha Camilla will make an appearance soon enough. :D LOLL Yes, poor James XD living with such a dysfunctional and crazy trio with nothing but a bad history haha
      I love this town, too! The first time I saw it, I knew it was perfect for Oliver’s generation. Yeah, it really does look European, kind of elegant in a way, too, to go with the high end college in the town. It screamed “rich people” to me LOL
      Thanks for reading and commenting!

  6. You are a no good tease MrsOogieBoogie. I had to scroll all the way down to the bottom to see what Oliver looked like as an adult, and he sure is good looking, which I knew he would be. I remember you doing this with Jason and I have to say its brilliant. The new town you downloaded is amazing as well, and i’m always in awe at not only how good you write this story, but the pictures to go along with it. Shocks me every time. Can’t wait to see where this all goes!

    • Mmm…Oliver is schmexy lookin’. Looks so much like Gibs and Gareth but with Jason’s eye color (inherited from Hannah no dobut) and brown hair. Yummmmm

      • LOL oh, I know.. I love the big ‘face reveal’ haha it’s my favorite thing to do in all the first chapters. He really does remind me so much of Jason, though, even more than the G twins XD idk who he got his eyes from, though obv it was either his grandfather or his mother. Either way, I think he turned out so perfect T_T These male Dubois genes are super strong, apparently O_O
        Glad you like the town! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and HAD to use it, I feel like it fits Oliver’s generation perfectly. Aww, thank you! It makes me so happy to hear you always enjoy my writing and pictures! *hugs*
        Thanks for reading and commenting! :D

  7. I adore your stories! The first chapter of your fourth generation is really, really great. I wish I could write as well as you, you are so talented. I can’t wait for chapter two!

  8. “I came to Dronningslund to be enrolled in one of the best private colleges in the country in the hopes of becoming a general surgeon.”

    ……..maybe it’s because I recently read the mind-blowing Generation 3 finale, but as soon as I read that first line I pictured Oliver going bat shit crazy in the operating room and slicing the living hell out of someone he was supposed to be saving.

    *hugs self and rocks back and forth* A surgeon. This could turn out SO, so creepy…..

    As it is right now though, Oliver honestly feels like a genuinely nice person. I really, really like him, and I’m so incredibly relieved that he doesn’t hate his father. I was actually super worried about that going into this first chapter, so I’m glad that my worries were for nothing.

    He does seem a little sad to me, but not because he doesn’t like to party or anything that that. There’s just…something else that I can’t quite put my finger on.

    Regardless, I like him already, which is quite the change from starting the last generations! lol ^_^

    So glad I’ve been taking the time to catch up with this blog. It’s seriously SO worth it!

    • LOLL! Don’t picture TOO much, Oliver is definitely not the type to succumb to such things so easily and wholeheartedly. I understand your need to “think” insane, but each gen is entirely different, which I KNOW you know LOLL so thinking he’s going to gut someone right off the bat is wildly over thinking things XD Oliver is just really not that type of person. He’s so sweet and nice and innocent.. It’s going to take a LOT of build up for him to even FEEL that side of him that the patriarchs tend to get. Give Ollie some time, let him live his miserable, shy life while the poor boy still can LOLL! True, though.. This gen could very well turn out pretty creepy just on the fact that Oliver is so calm and shy and has high social anxiety. Like father like son, maybe? *cough* LOL
      Yeah, it took a lot of time and thinking for Oliver to realize that maybe his father wasn’t all to blame, so once he hit puberty, he started asking Gareth questions and he eventually got the truth. Gareth did hide the truth from him, though, maybe for himself, maybe to hopefully keep Oliver viewing him as a fatherly figure for Gibson’s sake since he left, but, Oliver was too old to the point where he was smart enough to think on his own and eventually he got the whole truth from Gareth, even years later.
      True, Oliver is an openly sad, anxious, and self conscious person, but I’m glad you like him already! He’s a very sweet character.. He’s going to be hard for me to determine his insanity XD So glad you’re looking forward to catching up on the story still! I’m so glad you think it’s worth it!
      Thanks for reading and commenting!

      • Haha yes, I’m definitely seeing that now. In fact, I feel a little bit silly thinking that now that I’ve read more of Oliver’s generation =O It’s clear that he would NOT succumb to that sort of thing anywhere near easily. Makes me even more intrigued to see what it would actually take to push him…well, intrigued and afraid for him, especially because I like him so much!

        Like father, like son….umph *swoon* AND YETTTT *shivers in fear* lol

        • LOLL! Don’t feel silly.. Everyone wants to see the “red” when a new gen starts, so I don’t blame you, but of course it takes time. And love. Dubois love. LOL
          Yess. More Chapters are more than necessary. The build up effect is just.. *kisses index finger with thumb* perfecto, in the end. LOL

  9. Hey SimComix! I am just starting to read your legacy and I am already hooked. I actually for some reason landed in this chapter first, read it and then decided I should read the entire story haha.

    I do have one question: Kat is one of the most gorgeous sims I have seen and I was just wondering which skintone she has? I saw the credits on your page but couldn’t quite figure out which one was hers… I hope you can tell me as I would like the skin for the simmies in my game! :-)

    Thank you for writing this legacy! I love it.

    Sincerely,
    Francisca.

  10. So I’m already liking Ollie which is saying something since I hated the other 2 gens right off the bat. LOL I have a soft spot for him after everything that happened to him. Gareth, he really is a sad lonely soul now. Neither of his children like him, Nina left him, and Ollie hates him.

    It’s sad that Kat hates Cam. As Ollie said, she can’t help being the product of cheaters, but considering how shitty a father Gareth was to Kat before this, I’m sure it only got worse and Kat wanted someone to blame. :( I think Ollie is right, her need for male attention is all because of her father.

    I hope Nina at least got married and now leads a happier life.

    Ollie is hot, Kat is very pretty, I can’t wait to see how Cam looks. :)

    • LOL I’m glad you like Oliver ^_^ I think he’s pretty likable with the combination of his traits and what he’s gone through in the past.

      Yeah, Kat really did want someone to blame and she practically blames everything that happened on Camilla, even though none of it is her fault. Kat takes a lot after Gareth, so her need to push off her troubles onto other people so she doesn’t have to deal with it is in her blood.

      We’ll see Nina eventually :) I’m glad you like how everyone looks! They all turned out very nice :D
