Generation Ten Epilogue

The beach was easily one of my favourite places in Sunset Valley. After we had graduated from University, Rose and I had moved to Sunset Valley, the weather being perfect for her gardening, and for me. I could never get enough from being in the sun.

However, today, I had other things on my mind, and couldn’t appreciate the beauty of the beach.



After I took the ‘cure’ I was eventually disinherited, though Mum and Dad still helped to pay for my university costs. It had been Uncle Ambro who had done it, and Mum and Dad wanted to make sure I was well looked after. We had visited them for a week in Monnlight Falls in one holiday break, and they had liked Rose.

Graduation was amazing.

It was so good to see all my hard work acknowledged and to have a qualification, and I knew Rose and Faith were the same. It had been an awesome day, and the end of university.

Of course, things didn’t change completely. Faith also moved to Sunset Valley with us, a famous artist who lived there taking her under her wing, to help her and mentor her. Currently Faith was flatting with Rose and I, though, if plans for today went well, I knew she wouldn’t want to live with us much longer.



“I love you,” I said quietly, and Rose smiled her wide beautiful smile.

“Mmm, I love you too,” Rose said quietly. I grinned.




I had decided to go the whole hog and go down on one knee, and Rose looked down at me as if she could hardly believe it.



“Rose, you are the best thing in my life. You are all I will ever need, everything else is just a bonus. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, even if that life is much shorter than yours now. I love you. Will you marry me?” I said.

“Oh, Lia…” she said, gasping, “Oh! Yes!”

I placed the ring on her finger and stood up, Rose flinging her arms around me. I was going to marry Rose. My life was amazing. It was going just where I wanted it,  I was happy. Life was great.


So this is the end of the Gilberts. I will be posting again, I want to do some ‘author commentary’ because wow things have turned out so differently from how I imagined at different points. 

I will probably still play Adalia and Rose, and post some pictures on my simblr which I also post other sims pictures. At this point I’m not going to start another legacy, as I need to continue the Kleoses, which I’ve let fall by the wayside as I’ve tried to finish the Gilberts, and I have an ISBI on my simblr. I might start another legacy at a later date, or I mihgt just wait until sims 4 if I actually get it. 

Thank you to everyone who read the Gilberts. It was always something that I did for myself, as something to enjoy for myself, and I am always so amazed and flattered that others would enjoy it. You are all amazing.

Before things get too emotional and soppy I’ll end this author’s note with a huge thank you and a promise of author commentary and an explanation of what I’d planned each generation if the generations turned out differently.

Generation Ten Chapter Six

The summer break went by fairly quickly, and I avoided Aunt Rose and Uncle Ambro most of the time. I knew they didn’t like my decision, but I had made it. All I was waiting for now was for Rose to finish.

I was excited to head back to university, back to the house and my flatmates.


I greeted Rose with a hug.

“It’s so good to see you!” I exclaimed. She smiled.

“I have another reason why it would be good to see me,” she said.

Screenshot-2 Screenshot-3

She handed me a present, and I looked at it oddly.

“It’s your cure,” she said, smiling at me. I grinned.

“Fantastic! Brilliant! Thank you!” I looked at the box, before looking back at Rose.

“Are you going to take it?” Rose asked.


“I’m going to be disinherited if I do this,” I said, “I want to do this, but I’m losing my family.”

“Maybe you should wait until university is finished. They’re paying, right? What will happen if they stop paying halfway through the year?” she asked, looking concerned.

“They won’t know until the end of the year. I am doing this. This is the right thing for me, it’s what I need to do. But it’s ridiculous that I’m going to be disinherited for this,” I said.

“I’d probably be disowned if I gave up my powers,” Rose said.

“That’s completely different. Being a fairy isn’t going to stop you from doing what you want to do. I can’t go out in the sun. I need to drink plasma. I could very easily kill someone,” I said, shaking my head, “I don’t want this. I want to be normal.”

“Well, you have the cure now. You can take it when you’re ready. Think it over for awhile,” she said, and smiled before she walked off.


I ended up meditating over it. I already knew I was going to take it, it was just a matter of when.

And I had decided.

Screenshot-8 Screenshot-10 Screenshot-11 Screenshot-12

I took the cure, and I felt strange. Everything was different, yet the same. It was bizarre.

I went to find Rose.

“I did it! I took the cure!” I exclaimed. Rose smiled at me.

“Are you happy?” she asked. I nodded, before I hugged her, and then kissed her.

Screenshot-16 Screenshot-17

She kissed me back.

We broke apart, and a blushed lightly.

“Look, that wasn’t just because I was excited, just like last time wasn’t just because I was drunk. I really do like you, Rose. I’m not a vampire anymore, either,” I said.


“I have feelings for you, too,” Rose said, smiling, “I have for awhile, Adalia, but…”

“I know you thought I was drunk,” I said, “That first time. That’s why you said to pretend it never happened. We do’t have to pretend.”

“No, I suppose not,” she replied.


“So, what do you say? Let’s give this relationship thing a go?” I asked.

“I’m truly touched by the romantic way you said that,” Rose said with a laugh, “Yes. Let’s.”


There was just one thing I had to get done as a human, something I had been looking forward to.

After spending a bit of time with Rose, I headed down to the coffee shop. I had started to feel hungry, which was a new thing for me, but I wanted my first meal as a human to be delicious. So I bought something from the coffee shop. A chocolate brownie.

As a child, we ate food, rather than drank plasma, and I remembered that I had really quite liked brownies, and I was sure that now they would be even better, now that I had the taste buds of a human.

Screenshot-22 Screenshot-24

I was right. It was delicious. I was human, brownies were perfect, and I was with Rose. I could follow my dreams. How could I possibly care that I would be disowned?


So she’s not a vampire anymore, which means technically it’s really the end. I will be posting one more chapter though.

Generation Ten Chapter Five

I woke up the morning after kissing Rose with a bad headache. I went downstairs to see Rose sitting at the table, so I joined her.

“We need to talk,” I said, “About last night.”

“Forget it, Adalia. You were drunk. We can’t look any further into it, because my family… I can be friends with whoever I want. I can’t be romantically involved with a vampire,” Rose said.

“I won’t be… you’re going to…”

“I know, but that’s not the point. It only happened because you were drunk, anyway. We should forget about it. We’re still friends,” Rose said.



“Yeah, Of course we are,” I said.

Things were awkward, though, as much as we both tried to forget about it. We tried to act like normal, but things were tense.

The rest of the break I decided to avoid partying, and the last semester of the year went by fairly uneventfully.



When I wasn’t studying I was working out, and all my studying paid off. I ended up being the top of my class, with almost perfect marks.



The Saturday after the exams, Faith had organised a protest against radiation, so Rose and I thought we’d support her and go to it, and delay our trips back home by a day to go to it. I’ve never been very politically minded, as a vampire most of what happens doesn’t affect me, but it was important to Faith, and it wasn’t too bad going. I wouldn’t say it was fun, but it wasn’t awful, either.



According to Faith, the protest went really well. She was really quite pleased.

I stuck around for awhile before I began the drive back home.



I arrived home that night, and it felt so amazing just to see the familiar house. I had no idea how much I’d missed it until I saw it, until I drove into Moonlight Falls and saw the familiar sights.



Walking into the house with my luggage was like a breath of fresh air. Home. Wonderful, glorious home.



“Lia!” Aunt Rose came out of the living room, and pulled me into a hug, “Oh, it’s good to see you!”

“It’s great to see you, too. Where is everyone?” I asked.



“Well, your parents, brother and sister are at their house, Ambro is playing video games, and Charlotte is around somewhere,” Aunt Rose said.

“Excuse me, did you say they were at their house? Isn’t this their house? When did they move?” I demanded.

“Ah, yes, that is something we needed to talk to you about. Come on,” Aunt Rose said, and ushered me into the living room. She took the seat next to Uncle Ambro, so I sat down on the sofa chair.



“Hey Uncle Ambro!” I said.

“Hi, Adalia – DIE YOU STUPID FUCK – how was university?” he said.

“It was good… Aunt Rose said you had to talk to me about something?”

“Yeah we do, just let me – NO YOU BASTARD WHAT ARE YOU DOING!”

“Well, I’ll talk, then,” Aunt Rose said, rolling her eyes slightly, “Basically, Adalia, the house is yours now. Your father and mother bought a house, took a bit of money with them, and now everything is yours, for you to pass on to your children.”

“I’m not having children,” I said. Aunt Rose looked confused.

“You could change your mind, honey,” she said. I shook my head.

“I dunno, it’s pretty hard to have kids with another girl,” I said.

“There are plenty of options, then. Your Aunt Aimee and Aunt Jessica had children together thanks to a medical procedure in which-”

“I don’t know who those people are,” I said, cutting Aunt Rose off, “And I don’t care. I don’t want children, anyway. I don’t want them. Also, my friend Rose, my flatmate? She’s working on a vampirism cure for me. I guess in all your stories about the family that I didn’t ever listen to you forgot to mention that there’s a bloody cure!”

Uncle Ambro had put his game controller aside.

“We had two daughters who took the cure, and it was a disaster. You can’t take it,” Uncle Ambro said.

“I think you’ll find that I’m an adult, and that I can do what I want. I don’t want this. Because of this I can’t ever compete in martial arts competitions or play professional sports because I have an unfair advantage. I can’t go into the sun, I love the sun. You know I love the sun. There isn’t a single thing that I enjoy about being a vampire, and I don’t want it!” I exclaimed.



“You don’t know what this has done, Lia. It tore apart our family. It can’t happen again,” Uncle Ambro said.

“How would it tear apart our family this time? I just want to be normal!” I exclaimed.

“Well, if you do have this ‘cure’ then you will not be welcome in this house! There is no such thing as a cure, you are denying part of yourself!” Uncle Ambro exclaimed.

“Ambro…” Aunt Rose said softly, but Uncle Ambro ignored her.

“Would you take a cure for your blonde hair?”

“Hair dye,” I said instantly, “‘Denying a part of myself’? Are you freaking kidding me? Staying a vampire will be denying a part of myself! I want to feel the sun on my skin, I want to play sports and do martial arts training. That is much more part of myself. And as for not being welcome in this house? I thought it was mine? Or was that only conditional, until I had a child that you could say to them that it was theirs? As long as I gave you a vampire child? It’s not going to happen.”

“The minute you become a human you become disinherited. That’s just how it is. The family belongings, the family secrets, they all have to stay within our family, with vampires. You won’t be one of us any more,” Ambro said. I shook my head, and stood up, ready to walk out of the room, before I turned around to look back at Uncle Ambro.

“I don’t want to be one of you any more.”

Generation Ten Chapter Four

The first semester seemed to go by pretty quickly, and it was soon time for break. I decided to stay at uni over the break, not wanting to go back home for only a week. I also had no idea what I was going to tell my family about my decision to become human, and I had no idea how to act around them like nothing had changed. It was easiest for me to just avoid it for a week.

Rose and Faith decided to stay too, Rose’s family living quite far away. I wasn’t sure why Faith was staying, but it was nice to have both of them around.

I had done well in my exams, passing very easily, and I didn’t have to worry about study for a week. I was ready for my party week.

On the Friday after exams finished, we had a party at our place.

Screenshot-8 Screenshot-11 Screenshot-14 Screenshot-17

The party got wild and there was a lot of streaking. I’ll admit my part in it. It was a lot of fun.

It did, however, end with the police breaking us up.


However it ended, I was looking forward to the next party.

Said next party was the next day, and I was invited along by someone from my class. Rose and Faith weren’t going, but I was going, and I was going to have a great time.



It was apparently a pool party (not that I noticed any pool) so I dressed in my bikini and even put on sunglasses even though they weren’t needed. May as well get into the theme.

Screenshot-23 Screenshot-29


I did drink a lot, and I discovered it had an interesting… side effect on me. I was already a fairly flirty person, it came extremely natural to me, but it became extremely pronounced while drunk.

Screenshot-28 Screenshot-31


Making out with a few people was actually really enjoyable, and I did note through my drunken haze that I much preferred making out with the girls. This didn’t bother me, really, and I was way too drunk to actually think about it.

The rest of the party was great, and I was glad that I hadn’t gone any further than making out with anyone while I was drunk. I’d have hated to go any further while drunk.

The party wasn’t quite as crazy as the one we’d had at our place the night previously, but I made my way home, still drunk, and apparently quite loudly because when I went to start up the stairs Rose was standing there.

“Can you be quieter?” Rose asked tiredly, “Faith and I are trying to sleep.” I didn’t say anything as I stared at her, before leaning forward and kissing her.



Rose pushed me away with a lot of force, not that it sent me very far, and I looked at her with wide eyes.

“I’m sorry!” I exclaimed before running back up the stairs and getting into bed. I was still to drunk to properly process what had happened, but I greatly regretted it in the morning.



I had a long sleep, and in the morning had an awful hangover that I knew I deserved. I had completely destroyed my whole friendship with Rose. This was a disaster.

University was great. My first semester I was taking quite a light load, to get me into university. I did really enjoy it though.

Screenshot-112 Screenshot-114 Screenshot-115


Part of our studies included studying how the human body, and, mostly, skeleton worked, especially in regards to how it moved during exercise. I found it fascinating, though there were others in my class who found it boring.

Screenshot-91 Screenshot-97 Screenshot-101

I also really loved my flat, and got on really well with Faith and Rose, though Rose and I were a lot closer. There was no particularly reason, Faith was great, too, but there was something that made us really good friends, just naturally, I suppose. We hadn’t known each other too long, but I felt already that I’d made a lifelong friend in Rose. There was a connection.



Having a fairy as a friend was definitely going to make life interesting. More interesting than being a vampire, anyway.

I hated it. I missed the sun. I could be out there for a short while without it bothering me, but it was never for long enough. I wanted to spend the day sunbathing, or going swimming at the beach.

One afternoon after one of my classes, I did go out to the back in a bikini to relaz and sunbathe for awhile, with the promise to myself that I would go inside as soon as I needed to.



It was amazing to be out there. Even if it could only be for a short time. I wanted to spend all day out there, though.

I was getting ready to go back inside when Rose came outside.



“Are you insane?” she exclaimed as she walked down the steps towards me.

“Of course not. I enjoy the sun,” I said. She shook her head as she reached me.

“You know, I’ve never heard of a suicidal vampire before,” she said with a small smile.

“I’m not, I’m going to head inside before anything happens. Anyway, clearly you’ve never read any vampire fiction,” I said. Rose shook her head, slightly puzzled.

“There’s vampire fiction?”

“Just stay in your little fairy world,” I said, standing up, and heading back inside.

Later that day, I was in my room, reading a book on my bed when Rose knocked on the door and came in. I closed the book, putting it under my bed as Rose came in and sat down on my bed next to me.



“So you like the sun?” Rose asked. I nodded.

“The sun doesn’t affect child vampires. If you grow up as a vampire it doesn’t affect you until you’re fully grown. It sounds stupid, I know, but there it is. I’ve always loved the sun, for as long as I can remember. The heat, summer is my favourite season. I miss it so much, and I hate not being able to enjoy it,” I said. Rose looked thoughtful.

“Do you like being a vampire?” she asked.

“Not particularly. There’s nothing particularly wonderful about it. Others love it, I know, but I don’t. I won’t ever be able to be a professional sportswoman because I have an unfair advantage,” I said.

“Why don’t you take the cure?” Rose asked. I bolted up, staring at Rose in shock, searching her. Cure? Her eyes reflected her confusion.

“There’s a cure?” I asked.

“You don’t know about it?” Rose asked. I shook my head.

“No doubt my family would know it exists though… they must’ve kept it from me!” I exclaimed, “How could they do that?”

“I’m sure they had their reasons,” Rose said as I relaxed back into the pillow.



“What good reason is there to keep secrets?” I demanded.

“They probably didn’t even think about it,” Rose said, “I doubt they purposely kept it a secret. You’d have found out somehow, keeping it a secret would be pointless.”

“I suppose you’re right,” I said, “How do you get the cure?”

“Well, there’s the option at many science facilities. It’s really expensive. But… okay, I probably shouldn’t do it, but I can do it. It will take awhile, I’ll need to cast a few spells on you before I can give it to you – you know, to figure things out exactly – but I can do it. Just… not right away. I need time. I can’t remember exactly what it involves,” she said. I stared at her.

“You would do that?” I asked. Rose nodded.

“If you’re not happy, then I want you to be,” she said, smiling. I felt my eyes tear up a little, and I wanted to kiss her. She was willing to do this for me.

“I don’t know… I don’t think my family would like it very much…”

“Surely your family would just want you to be happy?” Rose asked.

“I don’t know. I come from a very long line of vampires. Very long. I’m the heir. Everything is passed on to me,” I explained.

“I get that, I do, but they shouldn’t put those sort of expectations on you when you’re going to be miserable,” Rose said.

“I won’t be miserable…”

“But you’d be much happier if you weren’t a vampire. I’m not going to push you, but I’ll look into it, and you let me know,” Rose said. I nodded and smiled, and Rose hopped off my bed and fluttered out of my room.

Three days later I cornered Rose and told her I wanted to do it. She directed me to lie down on the couch.



I let her do a spell over me, and waited until she told me she was finished.

“What did that do?” I asked.

“It’s was more… diagnostic,” she said, smiling at me, “I could tell you exactly, but I don’t think you’ll understand completely. But I should be able to work on the cure, and I’ll give it to you when it’s ready.”

I nodded, and stood up.

“Thank you,” I said. She shook her head.

“There’s no need to thank me,” she said as she began to walk away, “You’re my friend, I want to help you.” I grabbed her hand and turned her around.



“Really. Thank you,” I said softly, taking her other hand also.

Generation Ten Chapter Two

“Happy Birthday dear Adalia! Happy Birthday to you!”

Screenshot-91 Screenshot-92


It was my birthday, and I was going to be an adult, a fully grown vampire. I didn’t want it. I love the sun, and the moment I was an adult vampire I wouldn’t ever be able to be out in the sun for very long. It was unfair.

As I blew out my candles I made a wish that I would still be able to go out in the sun. I knew it was useless, and it wasn’t going to happen, but it was worth a shot.

Screenshot-98 Screenshot-99


I did grow up, and I was an adult vampire, and I was somewhat disappointed. I couldn’t be too disappointed though, because I knew I was gorgeous. Sounds big-headed, I know, but I was. Nothing wrong with being confident.

But I was an adult now and it wouldn’t be long until I was off to university.

I was going there to study phys ed, and we had organised a place for me to rent and live in, and I was getting a few flatmates, that Dad had screened, but none of us had met yet. Dad had his connections, though, to make sure they were completely safe and check their backgrounds.

I was looking forward to uni. No one in my family had been before, mostly because this university, a supernatural-friendly university, was the first of it’s kind, and very new. I wouldn’t have to hide who I was there. Just like here, in Moonlight Falls, we didn’t have to hide who we were.

And after the summer, I was off to uni.

Screenshot-105 Screenshot-106 Screenshot-107


I had two flatmates. Faith and Rose. Dad wouldn’t ‘allow’ male flatmates.

The first thing I did when we all got to our new home was sit down and talk to them, get to know them.

“I’m Adalia, and I’m a vampire. I’m studying physical education,” I said to introduce myself.

“I’m Rose. Rose Blossom. I know, it’s a stupid name, but as a fairy, that’s the kind of names we have,” Rose said, smiling, “I’m studying science, I love gardening. I know, I sound like a typical fairy.”

“Nothing wrong with being a typical fairy,” I said, grinning, “Says the atypical vampire.” She laughed, and then we both looked at the brunette girl.

“I’m Faith. I’m studying Fine Arts, and I’m a Squib!” she said. Rose and I stared at her blankly, having no idea what she was talking about. Faith blinked once, and then grinned.

“You’ve never read those old Harry Potter books, have you? Well, in those books non-magic folk are called Muggles, and anyone who is non-magic born to a magical parent is called a Squib. In the witch community they sort of adopted those words, it meant they could talk about it in public and people would just think they were nerds, not crazy. My Mum is a witch,” Faith said, “I didn’t inherit the skill.”

The three of us continued to talk for awhile, and then I decided to go explore the campus.

Screenshot-112 Screenshot-114


I found myself at the bowling place, but there was no one around so I bowled a little before I headed back home. I’d make some friends before I really explored.

Screenshot-115 Screenshot-116 Screenshot-118 Screenshot-119


At home, Rose and I were talking about our experiences as a vampire and a fairy, and Rose decided to show me just what she could do. It was awesome, seeing her so tiny and flying around me like that. She was amazing.


Nothing happened much, I know, but I just like to introduce my characters. Also, I’m glad to send a Gilbert to university, finally. Figures it’s the last generation.

Generation Ten Chapter One

“Lia! Kat! We have a few surprises for you!”

Katrina and I had just arrived home when we heard Mum call for us, and we went into the living room to see her and Dad standing together, huge grins on their faces.

“What is it?” I asked.

“Follow us,” Mum said, and together they led us upstairs to the study/workout room/whatever it was where we put things.

“This first surprise of for you, Lia,” Dad said, looking at me, and I walked in, and gasped.



“Your karate sensei told us just how well you’ve been doing, so we decided to buy you a couple of things so you can continue to work at it at home,” Dad said. I grinned. Two year ago they had done a class at school to see who would be interested in karate, and I had really enjoyed it. Since then I had gone to the dojo twice a week, but being able to practice at home would be great!

“Thank you so much!” I exclaimed, and hugged both of them.

“We have something for you, too, Kat,” Mum said, and lead up back down stairs to the formal lounge.



The piano wasn’t knew, but the bass, the guitar, and the drum set all were. Kat was gifted with music, and had been playing the piano for years, and had always wanted to play other instruments. It looked like she was going to get her wish.

“This is brilliant! Thank you thank you thank you!” Kat exclaimed, hugging Mum and Dad excitedly.

“So what’s with the presents?” I asked. It wasn’t anyone’s birthday, and it wasn’t Snowflake Day.

“Can’t we just give something to our beautiful daughters?” Mum asked.

“Did Johann get anything?” I asked.

“He hasn’t quite found his passion in life yet,” Dad said, “When he does, we’ll be sure to support it.” I nodded, though I didn’t quite accept what Dad was saying. I knew Mum and Dad loved us, but this was a bit odd, even for them.I decided, however, to take it at face value.

“Thank you so much!” I said again. Mum and Dad grinned, before walking away, leaving me and Kat surrounded by her new musical instruments.

Kat and I may have been sisters, but we didn’t really get along. It wasn’t that we didn’t like each other, we just didn’t have anything in common.



I did love Kat, after all, she was my sister, but she was very involved with her music, and I was really quite into karate, and I quite enjoyed other athletic pursuits, though karate was my favourite. I was also quite flirty, though I’d never had a real relationship. The boys at school held no real interest to me. Neither did the girls. I just flirted naturally.

I got along much better with my younger brother Johann. He was quite athletic, too, and he was looking forward to high school and joining the competitive sports teams.



Before Johann could come to high school, though, Kat and I had our prom to get ready for. We spent the day together getting ready, and then headed off together. Neither of us had dates, neither of us wanted them, either. Part of the reason Kat didn’t want one was because she was slightly scared of Dad’s reaction. We both knew he would never be ready for us to have relationships.

Prom was alright. Quite a few boys asked me to dance, and it was fairly fun, but it wasn’t the time of my life like everyone promises it would be.

Screenshot-154 Screenshot-157


A few weeks after prom is was cousin Charlotte’s birthday. She wasn’t really our cousin, but our great-something aunt, but it was just so much easier to think of her as our cousin. She was an evil little thing, though the adults didn’t see it. She constantly had tantrums, and had to have things her way. She would always look so happy when something bad happened to someone else. I knew we had to keep a close eye on her. If only Mum, Dad, Uncle Ambro, and Aunt Rose would actually believe Johann, Kat, and I when we told them.

It was only a week after Charlotte’s birthday that it was Johann’s birthday. There were so many people in our house that birthdays were almost constant.

Screenshot-164 Screenshot-165 Screenshot-167


It’s probably really creepy of me to think so, but Johann really was quite good looking. Mix his good looks and his athletic ability, he could have any girl he wanted, I’m sure of it.

Screenshot-142 Screenshot-144 Screenshot-146 Screenshot-147 Screenshot-148 Screenshot-150


Especially if he became as awesome as me at karate.


Just an introductory chapter really. I can’t believe I’ve started the final generation! Hopefully I won’t take too long at future updates.
