  1. Omg I am so loving this ❤ love al the different media you used! The postcards and text messages.. It's just too adorable, seeing their feelings for each other grow. And it's so nice to see Stefan involved in this, too. I really hope this works out well ❤

    I'm also really curious to read about this from Mari's perspective. This can't be easy for her… I wonder how she's going to tell her son the truth.

    Great update! This is one of my favorites ❤

    1. Thank you SO much! I had a really really fun time doing this chapter and I was happy with how it came out. It’s one of my favorites too! 🙂

      Mari’s perspective is coming in a few more chapters! 🙂 Thanks so much for reading!


      1. You should be happy with it, it’s great! And such a unique spin on things!

        Yay, can’t wait for Mari’s perspective! I’ve really started warming up to her ever since she became a mom.

        Your posts always make me so excited to continue with my own legacy. I’ve uploaded a few chapters already, but of course, I’m still learning and getting the hang of things (especially wordpress haha). But it’s so much fun!

  2. OMG the twins! Is it just me or is Tobias a light-skinned Alex-clone? And Stefan! ❤ Oh my goodness. I wonder if he realizes how strongly he must resemble his dad (no Rosebrook has that mouth!) or if he still thinks Tobi is the only one who can see their father by looking in the mirror.

    1. LOL Tobi basically is! Their chin/jaw shape and eyebrow shape are different, but other than that, their faces are nearly identical! The little dreamboat hahahahaha. And Stefan is super handsome too!

      I think Stefan figures that some of his features (namely the mouth, yes XD good eye — definitely not a Rosebrook feature! :P) must come from his dad, and I imagine that makes him quite happy!

      Thanks for reading, as always! 😀

    1. Thank you! 🙂 (And I am assuming you meant grandfather XD Yes! They look so much alike, it’s kinda crazy :P) I’m glad you enjoyed this chapter!

  3. Awwwwwwwwwwwwww, they’re so adorable!

    But if I jump on the ship (which I probably already did…), then I know my heart will just be crushed. Because… #TeamNoFaith…

  4. Ooh, the way the pictures revealed in turn with the letters, notes, and texts. Just perfect! I particularly liked his first teenager post picture with the cell phone.

    Oh to be fly on the walls of this house when the twins are working in tandem.

  5. I can feel myself being pulled onto the #TeamToCo ship, despite my more rational judgement. Must be my mindless optimism about your ships! (*coughs* ahem, I mean, what? I didn’t say anything. 😉 *coughs*) Also, come on Mari, come on, Diego. Man up and tell your kids the truth! (Easy for me to say, lol! :D) Looking forward to the Mari point of view. Also, I loved this chapter. Reminds me of 2.14 – Moments and Mementos. I love Tobi’s spat of jealousy when he found out that Colette friended Stefan. 😀 This chapter made me smile so much! 🙂 (And, OhMyGosh the twins are so handsome! ❤ That RGS hair was made for Tobi! (I know that has already been said, but still! 😉 )

    1. I am #TeamToCo too! ^_^ and I’m glad you liked this chapter! I really loved doing it and loved how it came out!

      We will see Mari’s POV in a few more chapters! 🙂

      And I know, they are a pair of dreamboats omg ❤

  6. I’m in love with this chapter! So wonderful and heart-warming. All kids look so pretty as teenagers.
    How did you create the cellphone/FB posts if you don’t mind me asking? Is there a generator for it? I’ve been looking for something like that for quite some time.

    1. Thanks! I was so pleased with how this came out! (And yes, all three are total lookers! :P)

      I used generators for the texts and facebook stuff 🙂 I honestly don’t remember off the top of my head which generators I used. I just googled “fake text message generator” and “fake Facebook generator” (or something like that!) and they were some of the first that came up 🙂

        1. Hahahaha well someone commented with a theory recently and I basically confirmed it for them Hehehehe so I think people already have some good theories floating around 😉 (but people who don’t read the comments miss out XD)

          Liked by 1 person

          1. They sure do lol. So, I believe it’s highly probable that the reason Tobias and Colette are being kept from each other is because…[drum roll]…Colette’s father is Diego, and he and Mari both know it! It only makes sense 🙂

  7. Love how you intertwined all of the little pieces and variety of channels to convey the bigger story here. What a creative chapter!

    I giggled at their facebook selfies lol! Too funny. I also enjoyed how you captured the years in between, you really pulled of the aging visually in spite of the sims life stages being rather limiting in that aspect.

    I wonder what Mari and Diego’s motives are behind not letting their kids see each other. I mean, if it’s just because they assume the kids would get hurt based on whose children they are, that would be pretty irrational since they could get their feelings hurt by anyone really. You don’t specifically have to go to your ex’s child for that, heartbreak awaits practically every teenager put there…

    So I’m leaning towards thinking it’s probably selfishness, thinking about how their kids relationship would affect THEM and make THEM feel uncomfortable. I suppose in the early days they could have hoped that the friendship will fizzle out as it often happens at this age when you’re divided by distance, but surely by now they must realise it’s not going anywhere, if they’ve been friends for so long… Sooner or later Diego and Mari will have to deal with it…

    1. Thank you! I loved doing this chapter and I’m so glad you enjoyed it!!! 🙂 I like your two theories of why the kids’ parents don’t let them see each other! We do find out Mari’s motivation in an upcoming chapter, and I will say that (though we don’t get to find out first hand) Colette’s father’s motivation/reasoning is the same as Mari’s… So you’ll see which one it is soon!


  8. aww this is such a great chapter again ❤
    I love how creative you are using different pics like fake texts & facebook, it makes it more real 🙂

    Also I love to read soap operas 😀 (I'm kinda writing my own, LOL)

    1. Thank you, candy! This chapter is probably one of my favorites 🙂 And those fake texts and facebook posts were definitely fun to make! 😀

      Glad you’re enjoying the soap opera 😉 And thank you so much for reading ❤


  9. Me giggling the entire way through this. I love them so so so much. Tobi and Colette for life. I really love the way you use time progression, because like I know that’s what I struggle with in terms of legacies 😛 Since you’re spanning generations it’s hard for me at least to make time move smoothly and then you just throw in these beautiful chapters that make it feel so organic.

    1. Aww Steffie! This seriously makes me so happy. I’m incredibly flattered that you’re doing another re-read. It means so much that you love my story so much ❤ ❤ ❤ (And thank you for the kind words about my time jumps!)
