The Keen Legacy - End of Generation 3 TODAY - January 29

Hello Simmers! Thanks for checking out the Keen Legacy!

This is a legacy challenge, so you probably know the drill: 10 generations, starting from nothing. This legacy begins with Kingston Keen moving to an island to start a new life, and follows him and his descendants.
This started out as more of a sim-driven story, but eventually warped to something else (due to my imagination running away with me and also the fact that I got bored... oops...) so is a mix between a sim-driven and a story-driven legacy (so far there are no mysteries, but I always default to writing mysteries so odds are one will pop up eventually).

I started writing this a few months ago, but avoided posting it to the forums for two reasons - 1) I was out of town for a few months and 2) I wasn't a full member so couldn't have posted it if I wanted to. But now I'm back and ready to go. Generation 1 is currently finished (yay!) but I went on a brief hiatus (due to reason 1 above) and will begin posting generation 2 on the 3rd of October (with one bonus chapter going up tomorrow).

Updates will go up weekly (Tuesday) but depending on how busy I get with work and life, it's possible that this number will increase.

Thanks again for taking the time to read through this.

(PS links to the chapter index for each heir is below)

    The bonus chapter is up - it's something I'm trying out, so we'll see if it continues - there's a bit of a time jump from the end of the first generation legacy, and to help us bridge that we're going to get an update on the life of Lily Keen in what I'm currently calling a Spare Story, but may call something else eventually. Read it here (or click on the picture below...)

    Hello all, this is back up and running with generation 2. It picks up about five years after the end of generation 1. Anyway, I hope that you all enjoy. Thanks!

    Thanks! With visiting my parents overseas and coming back to go right back for work, I wanted to take some time to really make sure I had a grasp on things... I'm much better prepared this time, haha. I hope you enjoyed it!

    @SeaDragonSong This is the first generation where my imagination really went a little bit wild... of course, with Draco, the big thing is that he's looking for his twin sister... but as you can tell, based on this first chapter, he's mostly been throwing himself into work and so on. I think the next chapter is on Tuesday, and after that they'll start speeding up quite a bit more.

    Hello all! This actually went up yesterday (I update twice a week now, on Tuesday and Friday!), but I wasn't actually at home yesterday, so I'm posting it now. Enjoy! This chapter brings Rose back into the picture.

    They definitely all have issues. And they will continue to reverberate for quite some time.

    Thanks for reading!

    Chapter 2.5 of the legacy is up, and it's all about Rose. (You could, in fact, say that everything is coming up Rose... I'm only doing so because I was listening to Ethel Merman last night). Anyway, Rose:

    She knows all. She tells most. She's qualified!

    Snapdragon tries to find his purpose! Does he succeed?

    We are finished with this part of the arc - in the next chapter, things kick up into high gear. Hurrah!

    As I mentioned before, here's a quick update... I didn't want to make this something we waited a few days for as it's relatively short. Enjoy!

    (Also, the name of this chapter is one of my favorite songs, so if you've never heard it, look it up! It's awesome!)

    Good morning! It's time to get a look at Snapdragon's plan, now that his mother won't be coming to the funeral. And because I'm off work this week (hurrah!) there will be updates essentially every day except for Thanksgiving - Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
