This is a little something I want to start for you guys. It’s your chance to leave anything you want to say, to either me to a Chiffon or perhaps both. Anyone at all. I want to have a place where I can keep them all together, little testimonials, or big ones!! Just a place to share them with you and me. You can make them personal or keep them short. I just want to hear from you. So all you do is leave a comment below and  I will add it the page here. I love you all so much and I cant thank you enough for reading and supporting me!

———————————

I guess it is only fititng to start with me. When I started this story I had little more than a tiny idea, about a girl trapped in a world if white. Fate certainly had its way when I decided she needed a friend, a confidant of the male persuasion. I had just wrapped up writing Dream a Little Dream the day before ( I had vowed to finish before I started my new project) and decided Merlot would fit the bill perfectly. So I gave him and Fairy a family and moved him into Sugar Valley. I honestly had no plans at first to ever have an affair between the two, but Lace and Lo took the reigns from there. Constantly flirting, wanting to hug, kiss and much much more.  They had built up a friendship bar to its fullest in the smallest amount of time I have ever seen. Constantly Lacey’s phone would ring. If you look through the first couple chapters, everytime she is on the phone. It was him. Just put them in a household together and you will see. I finally got so tired of canceling interactions that I allowed them have their fun. I remember eying my monitor with an air of naughtiness, oh heheh wait until they read this I thought. From there things just snowballed, there love and friendship growing deeper in my heart. As the generations progressed, I started to realize that even unknowingly, I was laying the groundwork for epic amazing things. You have all been such an inspiration to me and truly adore every single comment, even if I was not always able to reply back.  You kept me going and it was you who helped mold a bit of the story now and again. I love you guys so much. Thank you for everything and following me on this journey!

Berry, this was a great story. It made me so happy to read. I started reading shortly after Cherry became the heir (although I started from the beginning) and you’ve had me hooked on berry’s since the start. I’m even making my own town and filling it with berry’s before I start my first ever legacy…
Thank you so much, Berry.

~Tari

So it’s over. I can’t believe the dramatic ending, and only think- what if Chantilly and Merlot didn’t fall in love (or rather you didn’t let them). I would assume that the heirs would look drastically different, and well, maybe it would be Bubbie dreaming, not Merlot? Eh. Sorry for confusing you.

– Might start my own rainbowcy thanks to yours.

Berry and the Chiffons,
I started reading this pretty late in the game. Ok, way late. Wisteria was already named heir. Sometimes I don’t think it’s fair that I really never had to wait for chapters to come out. That there was not really an air of suspension for somethings, because I would just click to the next chapter. But in the little amount of time that it took me to read Splash, I got connected to it in a way I couldn’t understand. The only thing I really regret about this, well not really regret, but it is now painfully boring to make Vanilla Sims.

But to this, and everything else. I say thank you. Thank you for taking your time and doing this for us.

My feelings right now feel like they did at graduation. The moment where we’re all sobbing it’s over, but we’re all so happy to have made it through together. Even though I came in midway, I’ve enjoyed it just as much as the next person. I’ve cried, laughed, cooed, and sighed. I’ve always been an admirer of dreams and this pretty much makes my head explode with giddyness.

I’ve mentioned it before, but Berry you really have been an inspiration in getting me to write again. I haven’t shared it publicly because they are very special and intimate to me, but someday maybe I will.
Bubbie, I still love you the most, but destiny is destiny and we wouldn’t have seen what was to be if Lo hadn’t made that one big choice.
Keep doing what you do Berry!

Wow, where do I even start? This legacy has become so much more than just a story on the forums. Each heir/heiress has taken me on an emotional roller coaster and we all have you to thank for that, Berry. I feel like through this story I’ve made friends and connections that you don’t normally make through normal circumstances. This story is incredible, inspiring, fantastic, and all around awesome. I will still recommend people to read it if they haven’t already because it is so enchanting and beautiful.
Tranquil, your generation is still by far my favorite. Your story touched me in such a way that I will always remember you. You have to be the most gorgeous sim I have ever seen and you and Granite are absolutely perfect together. You are amazing girl, don’t forget it!
Berry, you are an incredible writer and an amazing person, I really look up to you and I admire your ability to develop characters and weave so many emotions into your stories. I cannot wait to see what else you go on to do. I look ahead to the day when you write a series of books that become bestsellers and I’m smiling because I was reading all your stuff before you were a famous author. :D Lotsa hugs for you, Berry! Mwa! Keep writing and being your awesome self. :)

This story has been a huge inspiration to me. It has been part of what made me love the forums, and particularly the story section. Everything about it was beautiful. The writing, the pictures, the characters, everything. I will always look up to you in my writing, and will always be inspired. I know that if I ever need a little jump in my writing I can just come back and reread this as many times as I want. I feel like it was yesterday when I discovered this, though it was actually just before Wisteria’s generation began. With everything going on in my busy life I sat down and read it in a matter of days. And I feel like it will be tomorrow when I read it all again.

To Berry – I can say so much, but I will try to sum it up. You have given me so much inspiration, both in writing and just storytelling in general. Your stories have spoken to me and my feelings about these characters, though some people would laugh, are very strong. I feel like I know all of them personally, mostly because you portrayed them all so fully. All of the twists and turns, (and not not to mention deep emotions) since I began reading this almost a year ago, put me in a position where I read through generations 1-6 in a matter of days. Since then I have been eagerly checking in almost daily to see what you and your berry-licious sims have been up to. Not to mention, I now find ways to bring up a certain type of wine more often than I should nowadays. I may not have commented until lately but I have been here, silently taking everything in. .Splash is one of those stories I will never forget. Especially, the beautiful ending, which moves me to the point of tumbling off the edge. That special element of magic that was always there never really hit me until I saw those statues in the garden.

To Lo – While I always adored the tale of you and Fairy, I was not concerned with your love of Chantilly or the fact that you two had a daughter together. Although, now that Berry (bless her little schemes) has given us a whole new perspective on your life, I still see myself looking at you in a whole new light. I cannot express the feelings. You will forever be my favorite Berry Sweet, and I’m not just saying that because of your looks (that’s the other 50% though).

Also, Berry, are you aware that every time he says darlin I literally swoon? Cause it’s true. I do.

To all of the Heirs and Heiresses – You all have a special place in my heart, the place where everything is bright and beautiful and Berry. Your family has taken me on an epic adventure where everything is so different from here and yet it is the same. I love you all!

Sorry for so many words ~

I never cry when reading or watching anything. But now I’m sitting here, tears dried on my face, wondering how you managed to change that. Splash of Color has miraculously made me grin and laugh (and now cry) through some not-so-greats and some really greats. And I’ve never commented at all, even though I’ve been silently lurking since somewhere around Waterlily’s generation.

Thank you, for creating this story filled with love and hope and all that is wonderful in the world. ❤ So keep writing, taking sim pictures (especially of Toslipes & kiddos), and being an overall wonderful person.

-Andie

———–

@.@ Where do I even begin…

To Berry – For making this wonderful legacy and sticking to it even though I know you had save problems and this that and the other. You are an amazing writer that has inspired so many. I just want to say thank you. :3

To the Chiffon’s- Each of you bringing forth so many emotions and I couldn’t help but feel myself cheering for every triumph and cry for every setback. I love each and every one of you and know each one of you has found a way into my heart. I could not fathom having you all apart of my life. ❤

To Merlot – Whom without him this story would have never happened the way it did. I am sorry you went through this heartbreak in order to keep these lovely future generations going. Thank you.

And lastly Fairy – Whom was forced to suffer heartache without fully knowing, perhaps, the reason why. May you have found yourself happiness.

~TUF

———–

I seriously have no clue how to say this.
You. Are. Amazing, Berry.
This story is amazing, too.
Every generation, there were new twists and turns I never expected.
I’m pretty much crying right now, because I’ve been reading since halfway through Olivine, and though that’s not TOO long I still feel like this has become a part of my life, and now it’s over.
But it’s not really over, is it? Because at the very end, Berry threw something at us I totally didn’t expect, and I doubt many people did.
She made it so that the story never ends, that the Chiffons will live on in an endless loop of heartbreak, adventure and true love.
Thank you, Berry, for making this so amazing and powerful.
>.> But seriously, I’m gonna miss this D: and I’ll probably keep instinctively checking for new chapters for a while…)

To Berry- I don’t even know what to say, not for lack of things to say, but a lakc of ways to process my feelings into just words. Berry, you’re a star, and I need you to know that wiht this rainbowcy, no matter how fictional it was (or wasn’t), it kept me on my feet through hard times in real life, knowing I had a legacy like this to come home to, read, and hope that one day, I’d find love like any of the Chiffons. Well done, and one hundred times, thank you.

To Merlot- Not much for you, my dear, as you must already know how I love you. I always wanted to tell you that the way you say darlin’? Makes me crazy for you. Nuff said :)

To Granite – You, my love, are the true star for me of the whole Splash show. You’re such a beautiful soul, and above all else, that’s what I cherish in life. I love ya, babe ❤

Now, I MUST go, before I cry on my keyboard again D’=

To my dear Berry,
I really don’t think you know how much you have touched everyone’s life. I got started with splash from the first time I saw it on the forums. I think you were only like 3 chapters in when I picked up Lacey’s story. And I was hooked. I have always said this about you, and I think I’ve even told you a few times. You are like one of my favorite authors. sure your not published except for here on the internet, but darn it, your amazing. You have this amazing way to capture real human emotion and to put it down in words. I don’t know how many night’s after a REALLY bad day at work, or when my Uncle, (whom I was very close too) passed and read your story and it brightened my day. I feel so very honored to have met you. even if its not in real life. I can truly say that I think everyone has at least one generation that they felt like was speaking directly to them. For me it was Westira’s, her journey, her spirit, and her kind hearted soul reminded me so much of myself when I was younger than I am now, and how I still am today that It made me wonder if you had spied on me somehow lol! But what I love most about that gen, is that it taught me a little something about myself, and I have started the regime that Wisty did. I tell myself every morning before I do my hair, or put on my make-up that I am a beautiful woman, that I have a husband who loves me flab and all. and that if Wisty can learn to love herself then I sure as heck can. So thank you my love for helping me to become a better me, and to help me take that step in the right direction of becoming truly OK with myself. Well I will go now I think I’ve said enough as I’ve started crying cause I’m gonna miss this family sooo much! But I know we are in store for more amazing stuff from you.

Love & Hugs,
Tink

Hah! where do I begin?… First of all I love splash of color for making my day awesome with every magical chapter of the chiffon’s. I still can’t believe that this is over. I mean I’ve learned so much from them.

Lacey taught me that True love is real
Cherry taught me how special a family is
Apricot taught me to stand up for myself and be brave
Saffron taught me that dreams do come true
Pineapple taught me to never give up
Olivine taught me that sometimes life doesn’t always go the way you plan it
Tranquil taught me that we don’t need our vision to see what’s inside a person’s heart
Waterlily taught me that everybody deserves a second chance
Wisteria taught me to be comfortable in my own skin
and finally…
Tosca taught me that life is one big adventure!
I luv you splash!

to berry: I wish you all the best in the future. You don’t know how thankful I am to stumble upon your legacy by accident. Yet I’m really happy that I did. Berry, you are an amazing person and a wonderful friend too. You are such an amazing writer and I love the way you have inspired so many including me. So thank you! :)

with love,
Pomponbutterfly

Where do I begin! Well Berry, I love everyone little inch of the Chiffons. They made me cry, they made me laugh and they defiantly made me smile. Berry you inspired me to make my own rainbowcy and I thank you so much for that. You will truly be missed and loved forever on.
Long live the Chiffons!

~Olivia

To Miss Berry herself,

Thank you for spending your time and full effort on what you do,

Thank you for making everything you do special,

You have changed my life in many ways and I think other people as well,

I always, everyday have something to look forward to,

I just want to say that even though I’m sad that Splash is no longer continued, I’m happy at the fact that I experienced it. I don’t want to be sad about because I know that the Chiffons shall live on!

So, Thank you miss Berry for everything and most importantly thank you for Splash, a gift that no on could forget.

~ Dayne

Berry – You’re sims are not only incredibly cute but their life stories were so original and inspiring! Whenever I saw a new chapter, side project or even just a sneak peek appear on my screen my day would of instantly turned one thousand times better. I thank you so much for sharing this family with us and I hope you know how amazing you are!

Lacey and Lo – I think I owe them both an apology, I totally hated their relationship. But after the last chapter I finally get that Merlot isn’t a player and Lacey saw more that his looks, his extremely gorgeous looks, and fell deep in love. Lacelot fan and proud!

Chiffons – Heir or not I certainly never going to forget any of you.

I’m am so happy that sometime around the early 2011 I stumbled upon the Splash thread, this was the first rainbowcy I had ever read and I love every bit of it!

Love,
Ambzy

Oh Berry, this story is like Cinderella to me- a classic, and will always have a place in my heart. It’s like a jewel crafted so beautifully and flawlessly. These characters have tought me too many lessons to count, but I’ll try my best.

Chantilly Lace- she taught me that love always comes first, and it will never be easy, but it’ll always be worth it.

Cherry Blossom- she taught me to not let other people’s opinions of you change who you are.

Apricot Bloom- she taught me to forgive and forget and focus on the people you love, enemies aren’t the way to end things.

Saffron Sugar- she taught me it’s okay to be different and it’s okay to ask for help when you need it.

Pineapple- he taught me that love is the most important thing in the world and without it you’ll never truly be happy, you have to take risks for the people you love.

Olivine Bloom- she taught me that even if you’ve been broken-hearted in the past that you shouldn’t give up on finding true love, and sometimes it’ll find you instead.

Tranquil Truffle- she taught me that accept what you’ve been given in life and make the best of it. Always stay positive and fight for what’s important to you. Love comes from everywhere, even in the most unexpected places.

Waterlily Whip- she taught me that you do need to forgive people and give them a chance, because they might end up being the best thing that ever happened to you.

Wisteria Lace- she taught me love who you are and find someone who loves you just as much, that no one’s perfect and all you need is a kind heart.

Tosca- he taught me that once you set your mind to something you can accomplish it and find everything you hoped to.

I’ve been reading this since chapter 8 of the first generation. Immediately I knew this story was going to be interesting. Magical. Amazing. Relatable. Lovable. I feel like I have such a nice connection to each bundle of these pixels, and I don’t know where I’d be without this story. It’s been engraved in my life, and I would want it no other way.

Berry,
I seriously don’t know where to begin. About two years ago, you were one of the first simmers that I actually felt comfortable talking to on the forums (way back in the writer’s hangout thread, lol!). I was instantly drawn in by your colorful simmies. I first read ‘Dream a Little Dream’ and I was hooked by your creativity. I was so excited when you started ‘Splash of Color’. Each chapter has kept me wanting more, each generation made me anxious to see where the Chiffons would end up…even though, eventually, generation ten would come and end the Chiffon magic. I can’t believe that you have completed ‘SOC’. Congrats! You’ve inspired me in so many ways with your writing/creativity/simming/kindness/etc. Thank you so much and keep up the amazing simming!

Lots of love,

Gabrielle ❤

You are an amazing story writer. I was hooked from the begining. I fell so in love with everyone of your characters. I hope you give us more, lol. Thank you Berry, from the bottom of my heart

I finished reading this a few hours ago, but I couldn’t think of anything to say then, and I’m having a hard time now, too. It’s not that that there’s nothing I COULD say, but I’ve been rendered pretty speechless, and anything I could manage to squeeze out would be no different than what the umpteen million people above me have already said.

However, I will say this: there are very, very few stories I have read that contained characters I cared as deeply for as I would my own family, and Splash is one of those few. You’ve created something beautiful, and, as it’s a reflection of yourself–you should be proud. I am forever in awe of not only this family, but the world you created for them to live in. It’s a place of escape, of emotions both bitter and sweet, of love and life in it’s most purest sense… If someone asked me to point them to something to read that find a place where their imagination could run free, I would just as easily point them in the direction of Sugar Valley as I would Hogwarts, Narnia, or Middle Earth.

Bringing this story to a full circle at its end was a brilliant idea that ties this multi-year project off in a neat little bow, and brings back so, so many memories for me… I don’t cry often when reading other Sims stories, but seeing Lace at that doorstep totally broke my resolve to stay dry-faced. Let’s face it, you’re the queen of tugging my heart-strings. XD

This journey is something I am honored to have walked with you, girl. It’s so hard for me to see it end, but at the same time, it fills me with hope–seeing how much you’ve grown only tells me that whatever you do next will shine even brighter.

You are incredibly blessed with talent–don’t ever let it escape! ❤ Thank you for giving us over two years of bliss!! No words could repay that gift to us.

Love you oodles and oodles, Shareberr ♥

Berry, so I know you don’t know me and everything, and I’m quite the silent lurker, I just LOVE your legacy. I’ve been reading very late, at about chapter 2 of Wisty’s gen i think. I stumbled on your story by accident, i forgot how but I did, and I don’t regret my choices. I’ve been searching for good legacies/rainbowcies to read once this is over, but I just cant find any that I like. I reread the legacy once all over and it felt fantastic! I don’t really know what else to say to you *ashamed*, except that I LOVE your stories, your sims, and your creativity. I also love writing and someday hope to be as good as you.

 

goteamalice

I cannot BELIEVE it’s over. I started following right after Pineapple had been named heir, and I feel so privileged to have been a part of this amazing legacy (even though I only started from the middle)! Don’t make fun of me, but I love your sims so much that here’s a little something for the heirs starting with Pineapple:

Papple, I remember hurting for you and your Romeo and Juliet story with Honey, and smiling when you marched into the room as she was about to get married to someone other than you ❤

Livi, I remember cursing those terrible boys who hurt you, and praising Cello when he finally came to your rescue, knowing that a girl like you deserved the best:)

Mira, I remember being on your side the whole time they judged you for loving Granite, and hating how you could never see how beautiful you were! (Here’s a secret- you were my favorite :P )

Lily, I remember hating Disco just as much as you used to hate him, then falling in love with him just like you did later ❤

Wisty, I remember trying to find a way to tell a sim that they are beautiful no matter what they think!

Tosca, I remember being as curious as you are in your adventure to discover your family’s hidden secrets (thanks for that, by the way ;) )

and finally Berry, I remember reading every chapter with anticipation and amazement at how incredible everything is and re-reading the whole story from the very beginning — wait I didn’t do that yet? Haha guess that’s what I’ll be doing now :D

Thank you!!

 

Julia 🙂

I found out about this story through your youtube because my friend wanted to show me Kate and I think it was the best thing for my berry little heart to have seen ” Over Again” accidently. Since then, it’s actually beome my favorite song :) . I actually read Pineapple’s generation first and never realized that Lacey existed for a few chapters. I went back and read every single chapter including ” Lost in Sugar Valley” and ” Dream a Little Dream”. Since then Papple and Honey and Olivine have had a special place in my heart and I’m so lucky to have found the tale of the Chiffons. :) I will probably come back to this story over the years and read it all over again. Thank you for writing this incredible story Berry. I’m so sad to see it end but so happy to know that there is always a happy ending no matter how it comes to you. I love ya Berry and all the Chiffons you will live on forever in the memories of us happy readers! :) ❤

    To Berry – For making this wonderful legacy and sticking to it even though I know you had save problems and this that and the other. You are an amazing writer that has inspired so many. I just want to say thank you. :3

    To the Chiffon’s- Each of you bringing forth so many emotions and I couldn’t help but feel myself cheering for every triumph and cry for every setback. I love each and every one of you and know each one of you has found a way into my heart. I could not fathom having you all apart of my life. ❤

    To Merlot – Whom without him this story would have never happened the way it did. I am sorry you went through this heartbreak in order to keep these lovely future generations going. Thank you.

    And lastly Fairy – Whom was forced to suffer heartache without fully knowing, perhaps, the reason why. May you have found yourself happiness.

  10. I seriously have no clue how to say this.
    You. Are. Amazing, Berry.
    This story is amazing, too.
    Every generation, there were new twists and turns I never expected.
    I’m pretty much crying right now, because I’ve been reading since halfway through Olivine, and though that’s not TOO long I still feel like this has become a part of my life, and now it’s over.
    But it’s not really over, is it? Because at the very end, Berry threw something at us I totally didn’t expect, and I doubt many people did.
    She made it so that the story never ends, that the Chiffons will live on in an endless loop of heartbreak, adventure and true love.
    Thank you, Berry, for making this so amazing and powerful.
    .> But seriously, I’m gonna miss this D: and I’ll probably keep instinctively checking for new chapters for a while…)

  11. To Berry- I don’t even know what to say, not for lack of things to say, but a lakc of ways to process my feelings into just words. Berry, you’re a star, and I need you to know that wiht this rainbowcy, no matter how fictional it was (or wasn’t), it kept me on my feet through hard times in real life, knowing I had a legacy like this to come home to, read, and hope that one day, I’d find love like any of the Chiffons. Well done, and one hundred times, thank you.

    To Merlot- Not much for you, my dear, as you must already know how I love you. I always wanted to tell you that the way you say darlin’? Makes me crazy for you. Nuff said 🙂

    To Granite – You, my love, are the true star for me of the whole Splash show. You’re such a beautiful soul, and above all else, that’s what I cherish in life. I love ya, babe ❤

    Now, I MUST go, before I cry on my keyboard again D'=

  12. To my dear Berry,
    I really don’t think you know how much you have touched everyone’s life. I got started with splash from the first time I saw it on the forums. I think you were only like 3 chapters in when I picked up Lacey’s story. And I was hooked. I have always said this about you, and I think I’ve even told you a few times. You are like one of my favorite authors. sure your not published except for here on the internet, but darn it, your amazing. You have this amazing way to capture real human emotion and to put it down in words. I don’t know how many night’s after a REALLY bad day at work, or when my Uncle, (whom I was very close too) passed and read your story and it brightened my day. I feel so very honored to have met you. even if its not in real life. I can truly say that I think everyone has at least one generation that they felt like was speaking directly to them. For me it was Westira’s, her journey, her spirit, and her kind hearted soul reminded me so much of myself when I was younger than I am now, and how I still am today that It made me wonder if you had spied on me somehow lol! But what I love most about that gen, is that it taught me a little something about myself, and I have started the regime that Wisty did. I tell myself every morning before I do my hair, or put on my make-up that I am a beautiful woman, that I have a husband who loves me flab and all. and that if Wisty can learn to love herself then I sure as heck can. So thank you my love for helping me to become a better me, and to help me take that step in the right direction of becoming truly OK with myself. Well I will go now I think I’ve said enough as I’ve started crying cause I’m gonna miss this family sooo much! But I know we are in store for more amazing stuff from you.

    Love & Hugs,
    Tink

  13. Hah! where do I begin?… First of all I love splash of color for making my day awesome with every magical chapter of the chiffon’s. I still can’t believe that this is over. I mean I’ve learned so much from them.

    Lacey taught me that True love is real
    Cherry taught me how special a family is
    Apricot taught me to stand up for myself and be brave
    Saffron taught me that dreams do come true
    Pineapple taught me to never give up
    Olivine taught me that sometimes life doesn’t always go the way you plan it
    Tranquil taught me that we don’t need our vision to see what’s inside a person’s heart
    Waterlily taught me that everybody deserves a second chance
    Wisteria taught me to be comfortable in my own skin
    and finally…
    Tosca taught me that life is one big adventure!
    I luv you splash!

    to berry: I wish you all the best in the future. You don’t know how thankful I am to stumble upon your legacy by accident. Yet I’m really happy that I did. Berry, you are an amazing person and a wonderful friend too. You are such an amazing writer and I love the way you have inspired so many including me. So thank you! 🙂

    with love,
    Pomponbutterfly

  14. Where do I begin! Well Berry, I love everyone little inch of the Chiffons. They made me cry, they made me laugh and they defiantly made me smile. Berry you inspired me to make my own rainbowcy and I thank you so much for that. You will truly be missed and loved forever on.
    Long live the Chiffons!

  15. To Miss Berry herself,

    Thank you for spending your time and full effort on what you do,

    Thank you for making everything you do special,

    You have changed my life in many ways and I think other people as well,

    I always, everyday have something to look forward to,

    I just want to say that even though I’m sad that Splash is no longer continued, I’m happy at the fact that I experienced it. I don’t want to be sad about because I know that the Chiffons shall live on!

    So, Thank you miss Berry for everything and most importantly thank you for Splash, a gift that no on could forget.

  16. Berry – You’re sims are not only incredibly cute but their life stories were so original and inspiring! Whenever I saw a new chapter, side project or even just a sneak peek appear on my screen my day would of instantly turned one thousand times better. I thank you so much for sharing this family with us and I hope you know how amazing you are!

    Lacey and Lo – I think I owe them both an apology, I totally hated their relationship. But after the last chapter I finally get that Merlot isn’t a player and Lacey saw more that his looks, his extremely gorgeous looks, and fell deep in love. Lacelot fan and proud!

    Chiffons – Heir or not I certainly never going to forget any of you.

    I’m am so happy that sometime around the early 2011 I stumbled upon the Splash thread, this was the first rainbowcy I had ever read and I love every bit of it!

    Love,
    Ambzy

  17. Oh Berry, this story is like Cinderella to me- a classic, and will always have a place in my heart. It’s like a jewel crafted so beautifully and flawlessly. These characters have tought me too many lessons to count, but I’ll try my best.

    Chantilly Lace- she taught me that love always comes first, and it will never be easy, but it’ll always be worth it.

    Cherry Blossom- she taught me to not let other people’s opinions of you change who you are.

    Apricot Bloom- she taught me to forgive and forget and focus on the people you love, enemies aren’t the way to end things.

    Saffron Sugar- she taught me it’s okay to be different and it’s okay to ask for help when you need it.

    Pineapple- he taught me that love is the most important thing in the world and without it you’ll never truly be happy, you have to take risks for the people you love.

    Olivine Bloom- she taught me that even if you’ve been broken-hearted in the past that you shouldn’t give up on finding true love, and sometimes it’ll find you instead.

    Tranquil Truffle- she taught me that accept what you’ve been given in life and make the best of it. Always stay positive and fight for what’s important to you. Love comes from everywhere, even in the most unexpected places.

    Waterlily Whip- she taught me that you do need to forgive people and give them a chance, because they might end up being the best thing that ever happened to you.

    Wisteria Lace- she taught me love who you are and find someone who loves you just as much, that no one’s perfect and all you need is a kind heart.

    Tosca- he taught me that once you set your mind to something you can accomplish it and find everything you hoped to.

    I’ve been reading this since chapter 8 of the first generation. Immediately I knew this story was going to be interesting. Magical. Amazing. Relatable. Lovable. I feel like I have such a nice connection to each bundle of these pixels, and I don’t know where I’d be without this story. It’s been engraved in my life, and I would want it no other way.

  18. Berry,
    I seriously don’t know where to begin. About two years ago, you were one of the first simmers that I actually felt comfortable talking to on the forums (way back in the writer’s hangout thread, lol!). I was instantly drawn in by your colorful simmies. I first read ‘Dream a Little Dream’ and I was hooked by your creativity. I was so excited when you started ‘Splash of Color’. Each chapter has kept me wanting more, each generation made me anxious to see where the Chiffons would end up…even though, eventually, generation ten would come and end the Chiffon magic. I can’t believe that you have completed ‘SOC’. Congrats! You’ve inspired me in so many ways with your writing/creativity/simming/kindness/etc. Thank you so much and keep up the amazing simming!

    Lots of love,

    Gabrielle

  19. You are an amazing story writer. I was hooked from the begining. I fell so in love with everyone of your characters. I hope you give us more, lol. Thank you Berry, from the bottom of my heart
    ❤ MissLumpies

  20. Berry, so I know you don’t know me and everything, and I’m quite the silent lurker, I just LOVE your legacy. I’ve been reading very late, at about chapter 2 of Wisty’s gen i think. I stumbled on your story by accident, i forgot how but I did, and I don’t regret my choices. I’ve been searching for good legacies/rainbowcies to read once this is over, but I just cant find any that I like. I reread the legacy once all over and it felt fantastic! I don’t really know what else to say to you *ashamed*, except that I LOVE your stories, your sims, and your creativity. I also love writing and someday hope to be as good as you.

  21. I cannot BELIEVE it’s over. I started following right after Pineapple had been named heir, and I feel so privileged to have been a part of this amazing legacy (even though I only started from the middle)! Don’t make fun of me, but I love your sims so much that here’s a little something for the heirs starting with Pineapple:

    Papple, I remember hurting for you and your Romeo and Juliet story with Honey, and smiling when you marched into the room as she was about to get married to someone other than you ❤

    Livi, I remember cursing those terrible boys who hurt you, and praising Cello when he finally came to your rescue, knowing that a girl like you deserved the best:)

    Mira, I remember being on your side the whole time they judged you for loving Granite, and hating how you could never see how beautiful you were! (Here's a secret- you were my favorite :P)

    Lily, I remember hating Disco just as much as you used to hate him, then falling in love with him just like you did later ❤

    Wisty, I remember trying to find a way to tell a sim that they are beautiful no matter what they think!

    Tosca, I remember being as curious as you are in your adventure to discover your family's hidden secrets (thanks for that, by the way 😉 )

    and finally Berry, I remember reading every chapter with anticipation and amazement at how incredible everything is and re-reading the whole story from the very beginning — wait I didn't do that yet? Haha guess that's what I'll be doing now 😀

    Thank you!!

  22. I found out about this story through your youtube because my friend wanted to show me Kate and I think it was the best thing for my berry little heart to have seen ” Over Again” accidently. Since then, it’s actually beome my favorite song :). I actually read Pineapple’s generation first and never realized that Lacey existed for a few chapters. I went back and read every single chapter including ” Lost in Sugar Valley” and ” Dream a Little Dream”. Since then Papple and Honey and Olivine have had a special place in my heart and I’m so lucky to have found the tale of the Chiffons. 🙂 I will probably come back to this story over the years and read it all over again. Thank you for writing this incredible story Berry. I’m so sad to see it end but so happy to know that there is always a happy ending no matter how it comes to you. I love ya Berry and all the Chiffons you will live on forever in the memories of us happy readers! 🙂 ❤

  23. Ahh you’re so creative!!! I do have one question…. I have seen people talking about dreamwalking in the Sims… WHAT IS THAT?!

  24. Hey, If you don’t have the download for sugar valley, how did you get the screenshots?
    I’m desperate to make a rainbowcy and, well, yours is the best I’ve ever seen!

  25. Berry,
    Thank you deeply for making this legacy. Not only have I gotten deeply attached to the family but I have also decided to do a rainbowcy and post it on WordPress 🙂 It will named The Lace Legacy after your lovely founder Lacey 🙂
