Libris ISBI - Heir Poll!

Hi all! I've been spamming an ISBI over at tumblr, which you can check out here if you like :)
Anyway, I'm desperately in need of help with picking an heir and mini-challenge for the next generation, so if you could take a look-see under the cut and vote for somebody I'd much appreciate it!

The naming conceit theme is that each child's name needs to come from a book on my bookshelf.
Additionally, I've decided to add a mini-challenge vaguely based on the book or character,
just to keep things interesting! None of them are very difficult but hopefully they'll be fun :)

Bethi Libris is a popularity sim, takes great care of her younger siblings,
and is fairly competent at most things (except making pop-tarts.)
Her name is from The Lives of Christopher Chant, by Diana Wynne Jones.
If she is voted torch-holder, I will need to complete...

The Temple of Asheth Challenge
The household has decided to take in some feline refugees from the Temple of Asheth!
When the torch is passed, four cats will be added to the household.
A minimum of four cats must remain on the lot until Bethi's death.

Billy Libris is a fortune sim, and has not found ISBI life overly stressful so far.
Either he'll find being the torch-holder equally cruisy, or it will fall on him like a ton of bricks!
His name is from The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, by Roald Dahl.
If he is voted torch-holder, I will need to complete...

The Giraffe &c. Challenge
The Giraffe, Pelly and Monkey's nearest and dearest have come to visit.
When the torch is passed, 2 deco giraffes and 6 monkeys must be placed around the lot.
A pet bird must be added to the household in lieu of a pelican.
These cannot be moved or deleted until Billy's death.
If the bird dies a new one must be purchased immediately (or as soon as money is available.)

Beren Libris had a tough start to life and is generally the most neglected Libris child,
but he has caught a couple of breaks lately (and engaged in extensive dance therapy)
and is hopefully pulling out of his slump. His name is from The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
If he is voted torch-holder, I will need to complete...

The Carcharoth Challenge
One of the many difficulties Tolkien's Beren faced in claiming Luthien as his bride
was facing off against Carcharoth, the giant wolf bred by Morgoth.
Beren must become a werewolf before he can marry - but unlike Thingol, Luthien's dad,
I'll allow pre-marital shenannigans because MOAR BABIES.

Buttercup Libris is the baby of the family and rules with an iron fist.
She is not cool with hugging, but likes jumping on furniture.
Her name is from The Princess Bride, by William Goldman.
If she is voted torch-holder, I will need to complete...

The As You Wish Challenge
Once she reaches adulthood, Buttercup must use influence on her intended at least three times
a day until they marry.True love is serious business for Buttercup - she may never cheat on her
intended/spouse, and if they die she must not remarry.

So, what do you reckon?
Poll #1910933 Libris Heir Poll
This poll is closed.

Who should be the Libris Gen 2 Torch-Holder?

AHA! I love the Libris and it really looks like a fun family to play. I've been following your posts on tumblr and liking some of them too haha. I voted for Bethi by the way, she's really cute :]

Thank you! They are fun to play. I think they'll be even funner when they have a bit more money though :D I'm glad you like Bethi too!

I confess to being kind of sad I can't play ALL the challenges actually :D

You should totally make a list of them so someone can put them into a ROS-type file. >__>

True! I'm writing them as the kids are born and named, though. Will get back to you when I have more than a handful :)
