Hallo everyone and welcome to the Danevbie legacy! If you’re a new reader, then I just want to say thanks for checking my legacy out and I hope you enjoy it!

Currently we are at…


Apollo Danevbie, Gen Eight: “I Wanna Dream”! And here is the most recent chapter! Chapter Forty-Four!

And for those who want to comment who do not wish to leave e-mails and the such, I currently have anonymous messages enabled so in the comment form where it says to leave name/e-mail/website you can leave those blank if you wish!

If you’re a newcomer and just starting out then here is the chapter list!


Not one for reading (or have the time to read) X amount of gens and just want to read some overviews to get to the most recent gen? Then here you go!

And now for a shirtless Kay picture.

Because everything is better with a shirtless Kay.

So yeah! Let me know if you love the Danevbies having a static homepage or if you hate it, if I should lay it out different or just get rid of it, or anything really, any improvements I could do…. But I just thought it might make it easier to have something like this when people come here from, say, the link in my forum siggy. ^__^

    Oooohhh..Static Homepage..its pwetty :]

  3. nestea7 says:

    Oooooo I love the Homepage. Makes me wanna’ make one. Lol

    • sweetribz says:

      I knoooooow, I thought that when I saw sErin’s. =p lol
      I was like..man…I should make a static page ^-^

      • sErindeppity says:

        I think it is handy to have it especially for new readers. Spiderg1rl has something like it (skylegacy.wordpress.com) but hers is the type of theme she has, I think. I like my theme so I figured out how to have a static page. Originally for Dannings but I liked the idea so much I decided to have it for Danevbies.

      • nestea7 says:

        Well it looks great with the Danevbies. πŸ˜€ And I just figured out how to make one for mine. XD Definitely considering doing it whenever I have time. lol

    • sErindeppity says:

      Thanks! πŸ˜€ I am glad this is going well.

    Smart! Very useful when you have five generations and some people are still religiously reading at Gen Three *ahem*. I see Penny hair and can’t wait to get there!

    • sErindeppity says:

      Thank you! I am hoping it doesn’t reveal too much buuuuut either I might remove the heir picture for gen six or something since it will reveal a huge thing in gen five.

  5. RadioGumdrop says:

    I love the static home page. How do you get your pictures to look so good? Mine look fine in the edit screen but when I publish my page they look like crap, haha. A little help would be great, but I can’t figure out how to message other wordpress users.

    • sErindeppity says:

      Thanks! And I checked out yours real quick just to see what your pictures looked like (I will go back and properly read it as soon as I can, I promise). Here is how I get my pictures.
      First of all, I open up the cheat box and type in “testingcheatsenabled true” to get rid of the plumbob and thought bubbles. Then when it is time to take pictures I hit the tab button which takes me into movie mode, without recording. Then you can do all sorts of fun stuff. Arrows (up, down, left, right) takes you forward, back, left, right. Z and X zoom in or out (or you can use a mouse wheel, if you have a mouse wheel; It’s how I do it). Q and E raise or lower the camera. the > and < rotate the camera, or you can adjust the camera by moving the mouse (that's how I do it). Annnnd if you hold in shift and press A or D, it angles the camera. For instance this picture: http://danevbiepictures.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/screenshot-2.jpg is angled slightly.
      Being in tab mode really helps being able to get closer pictures. πŸ˜€
      I also have my settings on as high as they will go without making my game lag. I really hope all this helps and if there's something you don't understand, feel free say something and I will try to explain better. I'm not a great explainer -sweatdrop-.

    Hello – followed a link to get here but am so happy I did – very much enjoying your story. Any chance you are the sereniticat (or something like that) I have seen posting on a certain someone’s blog on Blogger? In any event, I’m really liking your blog (including your format… will be bugging you for how-to tips) – thanks for posting it for our pleasure. πŸ™‚

    • sErindeppity says:

      Hey! Good to hear from you. I’m glad you’ve been enjoying my story so much. And no, any name I use for sims has been sErindeppity. πŸ™‚ And feel free to ask me anything you need.
      I apologize completely about it taking so long for me to reply. For the past couple weeks I’ve either been extremely busy, or extremely lazy. So I am sorry. I hope you’re doing well! ^_^

  7. ashenwings says:

    I’ve started a legacy of my own, if you’re interested! It’s still quite in the early stages of things, though. πŸ˜€

    • sErindeppity says:

      I am very interested thank you! I am sorry it’s taken me SO long to reply to this, as I keep saying, I’ve been busy and/or lazy. I really am sorry. I’ll go bookmark your legacy and hopefully-hopefully-hopefully have some time for it very soon. πŸ™‚

  8. zefiewings says:

    Is it okay if I add you to my blogroll? Because I just realized I don’t know why I haven’t.

  9. zefiewings says:

    Added you to a thread asking about the best legacy stories.

  10. fleura1 says:

    Oh no, I wonder what’s going to happen :O Great chapter, although I’m very sad for Chance. I’ve been hoping since Miracle wrote her book that Specter’d see it somewhere and contact her! I also hope the Reddings come along soon so they can help with Chance’s memory problems, or maybe find a way to turn him human so he wouldn’t have to hide anymore? I’m sure they’ll find a way to cure him…

    I also wanted to say that I don’t comment often on here but I think that your story is absolutely amazing and you’re a great author. And congrats on the Danevbies’ two year anniversary! πŸ˜€

    • sErindeppity says:

      Thanks! Maybe Specter will see it… but we’ll have to see. πŸ˜‰ Not sure which chapter you’re on though since you commented on my main page. But glad you liked whichever chapter it is ^_^ Reddings might be showing up soon~
      And awww thank you so much ❀

  11. taylorwr says:

    Hello. New reader here. I am still at generation one and I must say, this is great so far! So much emotion. I hope you get a family tree up soon. I like looking at family trees.

    • sErindeppity says:

      I like family trees too. I need to get the Danevbie tree up again. I took it down when the website it was hosted on was having problems but I think it’s better. I’ll work on it sometime this week ^^
      And thank you for reading ❀ I'm glad you've been enjoying it, I hope you enjoy the rest of the generations! πŸ˜€

    • sErindeppity says:

      Family tree is now up πŸ™‚

  12. zefiewings says:

    Hey sErin! For the Spouse For A Spare thing; I have chosen River and Kyle, if they are available and CC free. can you let me know ASAP?
    It was such a hard choice and so many spares to go through! ^.^’

    I also have a request; I know you are busy but so many spares didn’t have all their traits listed. Can you update the Cast of Characters or maybe add them to the family tree? When/if you have time! No pressure! ❀

  13. milliealexander says:

    Love the homepage! please can you check out my legacy? http://thecharltonfamilylegacy.wordpress.com/chapters/ thanks x

  14. Danielle G. says:

    Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I just started reading from generation one! I am interested and you’re a good writer – I am more excited that you have continued writing and working with this family for so long, haha.. and that you’re still currently writing. I have been reading a few different legacies and am currently thinking about maybe starting one, but I go through phases of playing the sims 3 – sometimes I play the sims constantly and other times not so much.. for a while. 😐 & I usually don’t get a ton of interest like you seem to have. Anyways – great job. I’m excited to keep reading!

    • Danielle G. says:


    • sErindeppity says:

      Hello! Wow thank you for reading, I hope you continue to enjoy the Danevbie stories! It has been a long time but I do love this family and intend to get the Danevbies to their final gen! ^_^ I understand about the phases thing. I used to go through that too until I started my legacy, and even now I still do and when I am in one of my “off” phases it makes it very difficult to force myself to go into game to get the pictures :\
      Well if you do start one and publish it, let me know! It took me a while to get the readers I did and I almost gave up in the first gen because I wasn’t sure and felt like it wasn’t something people were really interested in! And in the third gen when I literally lost everything. I wanted to quit but my readers encouraged me. I had to redownload all the Danevbies and the Redding twins off the exchange since I had no backup and just… work from there!
      So if you do start, good luck and let me know? Thank you for the comment ❀

  15. zefiewings says:

    So can you update the part where you list your other stories? Because I seem to have lost the one about Vilkas and I want to read it. T.T

  16. blamsart says:

    Thank you very much for the gifts! Is there any way I can repay you?

  17. I would like to nominate you for a Liebster Award if you’re interested. I love this story so much!

  18. starletsims says:

    I hope you don’t mind but I took the liberty of nominating you for a Liebster Award. It’s kind of a blogging award done by other bloggers. Here is the link for more info:https://sims3onestepatatime.wordpress.com/2015/05/16/liebster-award7/

  19. blamsart says:

    Oops, I nominated you for the Liebster Award (https://lightthewaytoheaven.wordpress.com/2015/05/16/liebster-award/) without realizing a bunch of people had already done so XD
    Well I hope you don’t mind if I leave your name up there, I think your amazing story definitely needs more publicity πŸ™‚

  20. LauraEliza says:

    Okay (since you said you don’t mind!) I have also nominated you for the Liebster Award πŸ™‚

  21. TheSimeater says:

    Hey! *waves in a nerdy fashion*
    I think I kinda like your story already (even though I haven’t ‘technically’ begun πŸ˜‰
    I’m gunna eagerly begin reading your legacy, I am new to the idea so it might take me a while to work through them…but I will!
    I’m also a sims 3 story teller, if you’d be interested in my detective drama do come and have a read some time (when you’re not writing your own that is!) Do let me know what you think, I’d appreciate the feedback!

    • sErindeppity says:

      Hi! Thanks for the comment! Hope you like the story when you get to it πŸ™‚ I’ll check out your legacy when I can. Right now I barely even have time to work on mine but once I settle in with my new job I should have some time to read stuff ^^

  22. Hello, I’ve been reading your story for awhile, and I really like it. I haven’t caught up with my comments (because sometimes I get so excited that I read ahead and skip the comments). I’m trying to go back and do this now. I wasn’t sure where to put this, but I wanted you to know I added you to my Sims Stories I Enjoy list on my sidebar on my main blog. Thanks for writing such an interesting legacy!

    • sErindeppity says:

      Thank you dear! I’m glad you’re enjoying it, and don’t worry too much about comments. Read how you want to read and if you only feel like commenting once a gen or once every so often–that is perfectly fine. I’d rather my readers enjoy the story than worry about leaving comments. And thank you for reading!! ❀

  23. Hello! ugh i’m so behind its not even funny lol but I’m going to re-read everything again because I remember how awesome your legacy is and I’d love to re-experience everything again! xoxox

    Also on another note: I don’t know if you can remember me (I wrote/write The Fearless Legacy) I made a new account and I also scraped everything I wrote and am starting fresh with this account. My legacy is still called The Fearless Legacy but yeah (sorry i’m rambling)

    Anyway to my point- I know your really busy but do you thing, when you have time, if you could review my legacy? And maybe give me a few pointers and your honest opinion please? Iv’e only got one chapter out so far but Chapter 2 is coming out soon after I take screenshots:)

    • sErindeppity says:

      Sorry I didn’t reply sooner but things have been hectic for me. I’ll definitely read your legacy if you still want me to! It’ll probably be later in August when I have time to do it but yes I’ll gladly check it out ^^ thank you so much for the support ❀

  24. blamsart says:

    I know I keep nominating you, but geesus, even if you stopped writing and went on indefinite hiatus, your story would still NEED to be read. So here’s another award πŸ™‚

  25. Livvielove says:

    Hi there, I know you probably get this a lot (I mean, your story is fantastic), but I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award (throws confetti)! Your chapters are always so much fun to read and while I’m not fully caught up I’m getting super excited to find out what happens (I’m on generation 4). Anyways, here you go! http://nightingale.pancakesandmadmen.com/2017/09/authors-note-9317-ive-been-liebster-ed.html

    • sErindeppity says:

      Oh my goodness thank you much!!! No I love it, it is such an honor!! Makes me VERY happy ^^ thank you for reading and I hope you continue to enjoy the story!!!

      • Livvielove says:

        I’m a slow reader but it’s been quite a ride! I just thought “oh I’ll read a few chapters here and there and catch up” and 30 chapters later I had to admit an addiction. Your writing style is incredible! I always love finding other story tellers! I just thought you should know you’ve got another extremely hooked reader!

    • sErindeppity says:

      I’ll try to get this done by this weekend btw ^^

  26. blamsart says:


    Livvielove and I have joined forces and created a masterlist for sims stories! We wanted to make a simple and easy to use blog that regrouped all the sims stories to make it easier to find a new story to read as well as give authors an additional platform to publicize and make themselves known!
    We’ve just recently started this project and we’re going around adding people to the list and encouraging others to sign up their story.

    We’ve taken the liberty of adding your story to our masterlist on this blog: https://simsmasterlist.blogspot.com/
    If you don’t want your story to be featured here, or if there are any modifications required on your entry, just contact us and we’ll take care of it right away! πŸ˜€

    Happy simming!!
