That was hilarious. Stella is just so creepy on so many levels. I could imagine her as a vampire. Please don't make her a vampire!

I don't know how you did it, but this chapter managed to be even crazier and more laugh-inducing than the last one. Stella just by her very nature is simply hilarious...in a very creepy and bizarre way. If she gets with Kristopher the poor guy is going to be in for an interesting life. :P

I wasn't expecting Barry to age up this quickly! And Ben is still alive...that makes me happy. Poor guy though, his evil twin of a grandson is not a pleasant person. :/

Your sims have done it again! Taken the crazy to a whole new level. I don't want Ben to die either! And how creepy was Stella in that reading shot? Hilariously so!

That was hilarious! Every generation of the Joneses has its own uniqueness. Tammie, Ben, and now... Stella. Though Stella is by far the most unique. ( and creepy! )

And Ben is still there! Phew!

Stella is going to grow up to have a VERY interesting life, and, if she has one, her spouse. I cant believe she got the flirty trait!  :o

I've just read all 51 chapters over the course of a couple days, and just have to say, Ausette, your storytelling style is fabulous. I have laughed to loud so many times in reading this story. I just love how you point out the glitches and use them for comedy. You have brought some very interesting characters to life, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what they will do.

Thank you for spending so much time creating this story and sharing it with us.

Chuckle, gasp, giggle, laugh uproariously! Totally love this chapter!

Thank you, Jude! I'm enjoying imagining you going through that sequence of reactions.  :)

That was hilarious. Stella is just so creepy on so many levels. I could imagine her as a vampire. Please don't make her a vampire!

Thanks Gogo :). Don't worry - I've turned off supernaturals in Story Progression for the Joneses, so Stella couldn't become a vampire even if she wanted to.

I don't know how you did it, but this chapter managed to be even crazier and more laugh-inducing than the last one. Stella just by her very nature is simply hilarious...in a very creepy and bizarre way. If she gets with Kristopher the poor guy is going to be in for an interesting life. :P

Thanks Raia! I'm not sure if I can top this chapter for funniness, because there was just so much bizarre stuff going on in my game during that period  :P.

Your sims have done it again! Taken the crazy to a whole new level. I don't want Ben to die either! And how creepy was Stella in that reading shot? Hilariously so!

Thanks Salti! I hope you approved of the name choices in the novel they were reading.  ;)

That was hilarious! Every generation of the Joneses has its own uniqueness. Tammie, Ben, and now... Stella. Though Stella is by far the most unique. ( and creepy! )

And Ben is still there! Phew!

Thanks Roxanne, I can't believe how popular Stella is already! The main reason this chapter was delayed so much is because of how long it took me to decide on a "voice" for her. It's good to know that paid off.  :)

Stella is flirty. FLIRTY?! This is gonna be good!

Very funny update!

Thanks Corey! I'm looking forward to further developments in the game too.  :)

Stella is going to grow up to have a VERY interesting life, and, if she has one, her spouse. I cant believe she got the flirty trait!  :o

I think so too, Ella! But remember, Caitlin had the Flirty trait too and in the end she was very much a one-man girl. We'll have to wait and see how things pan out.

Thanks so much for your comment, Kim! I just can't wipe the smile off my face from reading that! ;D As fun as writing this story is, I still doubt myself a lot, and having a new reader come out of the blue and offer such an awesome first impression is the best feeling in the world. Nice to see you come out of lurking, by the way.  :)

The update was hilarious! The picture of Stella with her fangs showing is so funny and the bedtime story! Lol! ;D

Thanks, Louise! My Sims very rarely make eye contact with me in the Sims 3, so it was a bit of a shock to have it happen with Stella twice. She scares me.  :o

Chapter 52 - Training



Shortly after Marlin’s visit, the adults win a free holiday and leave the house in the hands of the teens for a day. I assume that Marlin is somehow involved and decide on the spot to throw a wild house party.



“HISSSSS! We are NOT hosting a party! Nothing to see here!”

Did I mention Stella is having a mood swing? Anyway, soon the house is full of all the teens the Joneses know. This consists entirely of the girls’ love interests and cousins.



Omar looks quite happy to be here, but Kris Sekemoto... does not. Interacting with Stella only seems to make it worse.



“Kristofer! Your chest is a sight to behold!”
“Please stop talking.”
Oooh. You want us to communicate with our bodies?”
“NO, I want you to treat me like a Sim instead of an unfeeling hunk of pixels. Do you even know a single one of my traits?”
“Of course! I know you are a Genius and Virtuoso, for they are listed on the Sims Wiki with your full name and favourite colour.”
“...”



Kris doesn’t perk up until Marlin and Shanita arrive at the party.



He promptly ditches Stella to dance with Shanita. Repeatedly. Whenever they’re interrupted, they just re-initiate the action in another part of the living room.



Uh-oh, I know that look. It’s the “I’ve just been serenaded and now my mouth is melting with love” expression. For everyone’s sake let’s hope it’s a one-sided crush. Meanwhile, Mandy is busy being rejected for her first kiss.   



“Why won’t you kiss me, Omar? Is it my hair? You said you were OK with the matching ponytails!”
“No, Mandy. I just need a bit more time.”
“Okay. Is that enough yet?”



“Hey, sure!”

…Sims. Even the lady on the telly looks confused.



“Hello, Omar. Kristofer was not as receptive to my advances as I had hoped. Do you see where I’m going with this?”
“Uh, Mandy? Help?

STELLA! I’m sorry, but that’s just not going to happen. Could you imagine how the kids would look with Omar’s skin tone and your hair colour? Besides, if he dumped Mandy for you I’d have to do a Noah and leave her in her hometown, and I really want her to go through the culinary career for that spiffy fridge.



For all his supposed Evil-ness, Marlin’s a pretty weak presence at the party. Maybe it’s because he likes dancing by himself, maybe it’s because all the girls at the party are related to him, or perhaps he’s just keeping a low profile for when the party is inevitably busted by the police and the adults come home early.



I did say it was inevitable.

“You had a crazy party and you didn’t invite Auntie Hope? Go to your room and think about what you’ve done!”



Mandy uses her time stuck at home to build her Athletic skill. She’s wanted to do this for a while, but I kept denying her because I didn’t feel like designing an athletic outfit (that's not a silly reason when you're as lazy as me).



She isn’t training for long though, because the day after the party Ben autonomously lets the girls off the hook. Aw, he’s so sweet. :) I’m sure they really learnt their lesson from their six-hour grounding.



Stella celebrates by fishing at twilight as her glasses glow red and an ominous collar of fog encircles her throat. I really, really don’t know how she keeps finding these new ways to freak me out. Not to mention all the old ways:



Stella! For the last time, leave that poor boy alone!



Once again, Omar runs away while his tormentor is distracted.



He’s too scared to go home until he’s sure Stella’s gone, so after work Mandy takes him out to the bistro for a seafood dinner. Related note: the Lunar Lakes bistro needs better outdoor lighting.



All in all, life’s pretty good for Mandy. She’s smart, pretty, an excellent chef, dating her best friend, and getting really fit thanks to fitness training from her grandfather. Isn’t that right, Ben?

Ben?



BEN?!


   
“No! Grandpa Ben, don’t go!”
“It’s alright, my darling. Death is not my enemy. You’ll understand when you’re my age.”
“*sniff* No offence Grandpa, but I don’t think ANYONE will be your age.”
“Ah, Amanda. You never really knew her, but you remind me so much of my wife. She was the strongest, loveliest Sim I’ve ever met, and feel proud to share such wonderful children and grandchildren with her. Will you honour her memory when I'm gone?”
“I’ll try. I love you, Gramps.”
“I love you too. You’re a beautiful young woman and you’re going to make that nice Omar boy very happy.”



Benjamin Jones passed away at the age of one hundred and sixteen days old. He went out with a smile and was seen off by his daughters, granddaughters, and one very bewildered policeman. Ben was, and still is, one of my all-time favourite Sims to play. Rest in peace, my sweet, delusional little fire-fighter. May you be reunited with your Lisa in the Sim Bin.



Hope and Liberty: “DAAAAAAD!”
Phillip James: “Is there anything I can do? …I’ll just show myself out then.”

R.I.P Ben. We'll miss you and your quirks, although Stella has a few quirks...

Stella continues to creep me out. The photo where she and Omar are on the bus gave me a fright. It looks like they are. Both looking through the screen.

I hope that Omar and Mandy work out. Stella though could throw a monkey wrench into everything though. This might be interesting.

Thanks for the kind words about Ben (and Stella), everyone. I felt bad leaving the story hanging on such a sad note, so here's another chapter to hopefully take the edge off.



Chapter 53 – The Rule of Three



You’d think death would be a reason to show some tact, but no; Phillip promptly declares attraction for Hope and tries to dance with her during dinner. Oh well, at least the main household takes Ben’s passing seriously.



*sniff* “It’s stupid, but I just thought we’d have Dad around forever, y’know? And I’ve never believed in ghosts or anything, but I swear I can feel a presence in this house… What do you think, Barry?”
“Well, I think there’s MMMRPH!“



“My apologies, Mr Keaton! Don’t mind my ectoplasm. And this is your wife? Why, aren’t YOU a lovely lady! I do admire a Sim who takes it upon themselves to learn a new craft, we simply must get to know each other better.”

Actual sequence of events, guys. Careful Rudolpho, are you sure Hope would approve of you melding through her brother-in-law like that?



The next day Liberty becomes an International Super Spy, completes her Lifetime Wish, and spends the evening raiding the criminal hideout in town.

“This is for you, Dad.”

*sniff* Now I’m getting all upset again. Quick, let’s see what the teens are up to!



Mandy invites Omar over after school, presumably for emotional support. It’d be really sweet if not for Stella in the background, watching them. Always watching them.



*shudder*



Oh Omar, why must you read all these romance books? I’ve seen your traits, you’re not Flirty or a Hopeless Romantic. Perhaps it’s the escapism factor – thanks to the book, he’s able to completely ignore Stella for the duration of his very short visit.



That’s not through a lack of trying on Stella’s part, of course.



Soon it’s time for our first TRIPLE birthday – Hope, Liberty and Mandy. Mandy starts the party early by inviting her bestie Shanita home on the bus. Is it just me, or does Shanita NOT look happy to be seated next to Stella? Hmmm, I wonder what they’ll do autonomously when they get to the house.



“Ugh, who seriously wears a ball gown to school? You’re trying to upstage me, aren’t you?! Gosh, you’re such a Diva!”

Crikey, Shanita’s a brave girl, isn't she? She’s the first Sim in my game to say anything mean to Stella, ever. Hey, what more would you expect from Kelley’s daughter?



“You dare mock me? You have made a very powerful enemy today.”
“Ha, you wish! Bring it on, pigtails!”
“Shanita Ursine, you leave me no choice but to bore you… to death.
“As if that would actually– Wait, ow, my head…”



*THUMP*

SHANITA! What did she do to you? I didn’t know the No Sense of Humour interactions could make Sims pass out! Oh my God, it’s all becoming clear now. That’s why Stella chose such a seemingly useless trait when she was a child. She knew she could use it to incapacitate her enemies right from the beginning. Heck, she knew before I even figured it out myself.



Barry: “Why, hello there Shanita! How’s my favourite niece?”
Shanita: “Mrrrggh.
Barry: “Hard day at school then? That’s a shame. Are you getting along with Stella?”
Stella: “Tell him, Shanita. Are you getting along with Stella?
Shanita: “…Y-y-yes Stella, I mean Uncle Barry.”

I don’t care what the traits say, she’s evil! EVIL! Quick, let’s invite all the witnesses, I mean party guests for the birthdays.



That’s more like it. Please ignore the love hearts in the background, that’s just Kris Sekemoto expressing interest in both Hope and Liberty simultaneously. *sigh*



Mandy grows up without any fuss and decides to Become a Five Star Chef. She also takes on a brand new look to go with her brand new trait, and boy what a trait it is. Here’s a hint: her sister shares it and her boyfriend would too if he'd stop kidding himself.

Yes, it’s Flirty. Two in one generation!



“Hello, cousin. Do you mind if I take the last slice of cake even though I have a full hunger bar?”
“…No, Stella. Go ahead. I hope it makes you fat.



In accordance with tradition, Liberty is the first of the twins to grow up. If you look closely at this picture, you can see Shanita waiting impatiently at for the cake to be served.



Aw! She hasn’t had her makeover yet, but I think Libby is cute as an elder. She even looks good with grey hair.



Shanita: “Daddy, I’m starving! Get out of the way and let me have a slice of cake already!”
Courage: “Now, now, sweetheart. Daddy just has to take his slice and then it’s all yours.”



Shanita: “Really? YEEEEAH! I love you people! Mwa! Air kisses for everyone!”



“Oh, aren’t I fabulous. Now, on to the-“



Hey! How dare someone steal the last slice while I’m distracted by my own amazing self! Not cool, people!”

Oh Shanita, I’m really starting to like you  :). Don’t worry, you still have ONE more opportunity to have some cake. It’s Hope’s turn to age up.



“Thanks for showing up, everyone! It means a lot that you’d invite all your friends, but who brought the guy in the hoodie?”



“HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RUDY’S GIRLFRIEND! I THOUGHT I’D POP IN TO REMIND YOU OF YOUR INEVITABLE, EVER-ADVANCING PROGRESSION TO THE GRAVE. WHEEEE, I LOVE PARTIES!”

Oh, that. Yeah, Barry’s boss just died outside and apparently the Grimster has the munchies, and guess what, he scared off Shanita. I guess if she really wants that cake she can come back on Stella’s birthday. Anywhere, here's the outfit Hope aged up into:



Whoa, cool hat! That is so going to stay, and it looks like the family agrees with me. On the other hand, if you put your hand over Liberty in this picture, the teens look like a pair of hyenas eagerly waiting for their prey to stop moving so they can eat it. See, now you’re creeped out AND your screen is covered in fingerprints. Why do you read this story again?

Liberty is a lovely elder! I can't really say that about Hope yet thanks to the hat. :P Still hoping that all works out between Mandy and Omar.
