Ah no, Stella!  :'(  ( and once again, I'm late to comment  ::) ) Now, does she have another deathflower with her? Hmm... suspense!

That is yet another gorgeous house! I always love your houses and this one's no exception.  :)

Not as late as I am :P ! Sorry about that, I'm terrible at getting things done on time as you can see. Glad you like the house. :)

Chapter Next 69 – Seedlings

So, where were we? Ah yes, Stella.



“Stella, noooo!! I have so much more love to show you!”
“Exquisite! When may we begin?”



“Oh. We meet again.”
“HELLO STELLA. DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE PRETTY FLOWERS?”
“No. Stella is not allowed them anymore.”
“AH, SUCH A PITY. FLOWERS ALWAYS MAKE ME FEEL SPECIAL.”



“Mister Hoodie would like to feel special now, would he? Stella could–“
“NOW REALLY, WHAT DO YOU TAKE ME FOR? I KEEP THINGS VERY PROFFESSIONAL. NOW DO THE FLIP.”



Stella Jones. When to even begin? Stella’s lifetime marked an era in the Jones house, and not just because she lived for so very long. She was completely unique and tons of fun in her awkward creepy way, and I’ll probably find a reason to play with Stella again in the future. Rest in peace.



And just like that it’s over, leaving just Stella’s boyfriend, Stella’s tombstone, and clouds of Stella’s B. O. lingering in the air.



*sniff* “I wish I had more time with her, but I’m grateful I was here for the end.”

Glad you appreciate it. Now get back to work please. Oh don’t look at me like that. You still have an hour of your shift, that’s plenty of time to earn a promotion.

“I will push on… for her.”

That’s the spirit! Now where was I…



“Baby!”

Oh, right. To the hospital!



And out pop two baby girls! Just two, thank heavens. I was worried for a minute that Stella’s death had opened up space for a third. The twins are named Marigold and Peony because I felt like flower names this time.



Joaquin soothes his grief by taking on most of the childcare. Who wouldn’t want a magical nanny?



This gives Travis a chance to max his Athletic skill (with help from Nectar of course).

“Mum, I’m done! I don’t have to do more running! Please stop yelling at me!”

There’s only Logic to go and his Lifetime Wish will be complete. After a well-deserved break of course.



“Argh! Who are these people? Why are they here?!”

Because Joaquin had an opportunity to throw a party for work, so I thought I’d multitask and make it a birthday party! And I somehow forgot to invite Joaquin's coworker so I’m going to throw another one straight after this. Sorry Travis.




Well look at that, we have a pair of redheads! Gerard’s genes really came through with these two. Marigold (left) is a Friendly Virtuoso who takes strongly after her mother. Peony, however, got mostly her father’s features and the traits Perceptive and Evil. Oooh, I haven’t had an Evil Sim for a while! Evil starts quite early apparently.



See, she’s already indoctrinating her sister.

“Dada silly. Mama silly. Ma-gold friend. Ma-gold help Peony drive Mama and Dada crazy from lack of sleep.”
“Ga ga?”
“Help drive Mama and Dada more crazy.”



Babies are growing into toddlers all over town now, and I’m reminded once more that Sims are terrible parents. Whenever I send Travis around to visit (because of course I want to scout out spouses) the toddlers are always unattended and miserable. Generally you can find them either in the garden….



…Or by the stairs. Toddlers love stairs.



Not that they’re safe at home either; even loving parents occasionally impale their kids on their arms. Good thing we’ve established toddlers are invincible.





Luckily, it’s soon time for the girls to become children. Yeah, already. Let’s see how they turn out.



The girls grow up and… oh dear. You’ll never guess their new traits.

Ready for it? Evil little Peony (right) becomes, what else, Insane. I swear that was random. It’s basically a family trait at this point. And Marigold will make a fine henchman for her sister, because guess what? THEY’RE BOTH EVIL NOW! I have Evil twin girls in my game!



“Sister M.”
“Sister P?”
“Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”
“I’m not sure, Sister P. What are you thinking?”
“I’m thinking… oh dear sister, I’m thinking… with our innocent looks, with my brains and your sweetness, we could, with minimal effort…”



“TAKE OVER THE WORLD!! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!

Yeah, the same thought occurred to me. Both girls have a wish to see a ghost so perhaps I should introduce them to her. ;)

Chapter 70 – Pink and Redheads



Once again, we return to the charming and picturesque Jones household. Here we observe a peaceful chess match, befitting the intellect and dignity of my Sims.



“Thanks for the helpful game, Joaquin! We’ll max that Logic in no time. Love the new lab coat, by the way!”
“Oh, this? It’s just a small perk from my latest promotion. The real reward is seeing the gratitude on the faces of my patients.”



“And here comes your charming wife! How was the base today, Angie?”
“Lovely as usual, Joaquin! It’s always a privilege to serve my country. But I was so busy disarming landmines and digging wells that I didn’t have time to plan dinner!”



“No need to worry! I’ve got enough food for everyone.”
“Oooh Dim Sum, my favourite! You’re a life-saver, Jo.”
“It’s what I strive for every day.”



“Oh Travis, life with you is everything I’ve ever dreamed of. Perfect job, perfect husband...”
“Don’t forget the adorable children!”
“Of course, how could I forget? Tell me, how are the sweet little darlings?”



“CRUSH BURN DEATH DESTROY”
“CRUMPLE BENEATH MY TALONS, PUNY MORTALS”

Yes, even my sweetest couple ever can’t produce an actual normal, happy family. Sigh.



I kid. Despite their Evil traits the girls are actually quite upbeat and functional. They have ballet during the week and do plenty of homework and skilling in their free time.



See, Peony’s made a friend! This is Tristan Miller. She’s going to his place after school.

“Tristan has proved capable of colour-coordinating with my outfits. He will make a fine henchman.”



“Thank you Peony for being my friend! I was wondering though, can I wear a different outfit? Pink isn’t really my colour-“



“NO, you blithering idiot! We wear pink or purple stripes! Pink or purple! Do I have to beat you over the head with it?!”



*THWAK*

“Haha, this is fun! You’re fun, Peony!”

Tristan has the Brave trait, can you tell? He’s definitely not afraid of her.



Which is more than I can say for the rest of her cohort. This screenshot is from Peony’s second day at school. She moves quickly, I can tell you that.



Aww, but just look at that devious little face. What are you planning, little girl?



“Muahaha! I didn’t scrape the plates and now the dishwasher is broken! Suffer, flimsy appliance! Feel those chicken bones GRIND in your greasy innards!”

Oh, good! Angelia could do with more Handiness experience.



“Quiet, you. Must you spoil everything?”’’



Marigold, meanwhile, is designated Oven Kid for the generation. Can’t get brownies in Sim-land without child labour! She even bakes when she has French toast somehow glitch-stuck to her hand.



Eh, they weird me out, but the girls haven’t done anything particularly Evil yet. We’ll see.



Meanwhile, Nectar and Gerard have entered the “happy and useless” stage of Elder life. They’ve both fulfilled their lifetime wishes and Gerard only works one day a week. When they’re not helping their kids skill, they’re playing video games and exercising together. Both have the Marathon Runner achievement plus Nectar’s a Vegetarian so I suspect they’ll both live quite a good while longer.



Err, I always turn off speech bubbles when I play, is this normal?

“No, please! I’m not a real stereo! I was trapped by an evil wizard! Please believe me!”
“Huh, what a weird pop song.”



“Golly, that new vibrate setting sure is something!”

Gerard, no! Your wife just left for the park! Hold on!



“Please sir, just five more minutes. I just want to see my wife before I go.”

Nectar, hurry UP!



“We’re home! Why is everything so rushed today?”

Come on come on come on!



You’re almost there! Run!



“Kids, what’s going on? Where’s Gerard?”

But alas, she misses by seconds.



Poor Gerard. Gerard Lancaster-Jones was a very sweet, if neurotic Sim. I was glad to see him relax and enjoy life more in his later years. He will be missed.

I love the girls! Even if their outside sweetness and charm is all part of their bigger plan.

Lol, I know right? If only sadness ended so cleanly in real life. :P

I'm glad you like the girls! They're actually really fun to play :) . I had a bit of a block with the writing, but in-game I just finished designing their YA outfits.

Well, this has been an extremely awesim way to spend 12 hours! I have had this bookmarked for ages and only now got a chance at reading it from chapter 1! I can really see why so many people on this forum sing your praises! This was funny, heart-warming, tear-jerking and just plain excellent!

Nectar is by far the most gorgeous Jones to date! I say "to date" because I have the sneaky suspicion that those perfect Travis and Angelia genes might make for an even BETTER looking sim (or two as the case may be). My favourite Jones has to be tied between Ben and Stella. Ben in that speedo with that axe O_O and Stella with her twisted attempts at flirting (I think flirty and no sense of humour should be mutually exclusive but for this story I'm really glad that they weren't!)

Oh, you're so sweet! Thank you so much for commenting :) . Ben and Stella are definitely the favorites around here, lol. I'm surprised you also like Nectar though, I guess I was so sick of the Twinbrook jaw I didn't notice how pretty she is. Thanks for reading, I'm looking forward to seeing you around! :)

I think on her own, Nectar has a delicate beauty about her. It's just so easy to get tired of genes, even the best of them (which her jaw wasn't, but oh well).

Correction: I think I was sick of her jaw and nose. Just remembered the tiny nose Nectar, Mandy, Liberty and Lisa have. So many women (and Preston) with that jaw/nose combo! You're both right though, Nectar's quite lovely on her own; I really like her wide-set dark eyes.

Chapter 71 – Grave Matters



“Oh no! Not my husband!”
“Wah, not Dad!”
“GERARD, WHYYYYYY? I WILL TRAVEL TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH TO BRING YOU BACK!”

Geez Joaquin, you barely knew the guy! Why are you popping a wish to resurrect him?



Joaquin kindly summons Nectar’s favourite food to comfort her. As you can see, he’s been moving up the Medical career, passing through progressively less awful shades of scrubs as he ascends. I like the green, although it makes me want to photoshop in a different body and background for him.



Speaking of Joaquin, I’ve been wrestling with a decision for a while. As I’ve mentioned, household space is precious, and I don’t want too many Sims taking up my valuable baby-making room. But at the same time, certain Sims demand a place in the home, and in our hearts. So with Joaquin depressed and the twins popping wishes to see ghosts every other day, I find a space in the garden for a very special tombstone. It quickly acquires a mourner…



“Noo, not Stella! How can I live when you’re gone?”



“STELLA! I missed you so much! We can be floaty and sparkly together now, hooray!”

And they all lived(?) happily ever after. I like this compromise. Ghost Stella shall now hang around for the rest of the story. Speaking of ghosts…



“Muuum, your boss is floating!”

PEONY! What did you do?!



“This is boring. What else is on?”

Gah, a man is dying! Don’t you have any deeper thoughts?



“Hmm, this appears to be upsetting my family. If only I had such power…”

…Oh, fine. If that’s how you want to spin things than Empress of Evil it is.



Oh and Marigold has the same wish. I guess they can both be Empress. Fun!



“Arrgh! Marigold!”
“Hahaha! Calm down granny, it’s just a joke!”

I don’t really see Marigold as a leader though. Her sister is the weirdo mastermind, but Marigold’s charming and sneaky. Speaking of which:




Peony becomes a Loner and Marigold becomes Charismatic, which perfectly fits how I already saw them. But more importantly, now the girls are old enough to date! It’s time to narrow down some options, and that can only mean one thing:



No, not dating advice from Stella. What I actually meant:



Weekday slumber party! Look how many boys there are! Here’s just a small sample representing the Parrot, Bird, Marshall, and Miller families. (Spoilers, I’ve played ahead and both future husbands are at this party ;) ).



And here’s Cousin Kory (yes, Preston and Cynthia’s kid) having a nice time with Marian Darnell, one of the few girls attending. I included this picture purely because the two of them are adorable. Geez Kory, for a Loser I think you’re doing quite well for yourself!





And we have attraction! Peony has chemistry with Carlo Marshall, Randall Shepherd, and Tristan Miller. Wow, for a scary Loner she’s surprisingly popular!



Then again, Carlo’s a bit odd. He’s got the Evil trait and just a touch of Arlo-face.



Marigold also has chemistry with Carlo Marshall. Interesting. There’s a few different options here, so here’s my decision; I’ll give it a week and see who asks the girls to the dance. Will Carlo be forced to make a choice, or will somebody else come in from left field?



“Anyone ask you out?”
“Nope. You?”
“Nuh-uh. That backfired.”

Oh dear. Onto plan B. Let’s see if they pick up anyone at the dance itself.

Chapter 72 – I Scream (double update)



Success! Despite the many, many fights (and getting rejected by mysterious other partners), Marigold manages to snag herself a love interest. This is Ben Parrott. He’s thrilled, really! That’s just his face.



And Peony hooks up with Tristan Miller and becomes Prom Queen.



Aww, simultaneous first kisses. It’s interesting seeing which wishes the girls pop. Marigold just wants to make out, the little flirt. Peony on the other hand…



“I want us to be besties! I wanna learn your traits! I wanna go on a date! I wanna to get a house and travel the world and see the sights and watch the stars and maybe set up a smuggling ring!”
“Huh?”
“In France!”
“Aww, you’re so romantic.”

With pairings set up, I’m leaning towards Peony for heir. She’s fun, they’re cute, and Tristan has some really nice features.



“Peony, there’s something wrong with my eyes. I think I just saw a ghost.”
“Who is this lovely young man? Stella approves!”



Ben and Marigold are cute too, though. See, they’re workout buddies! Just like Marigold’s parents and grandparents before them. (Seriously, I’ve had SO many sporty Sims lately. Is my computer trying to tell me something?)



“BOO!”
“Argh! MARIGOLD!”
“Dad, it’s just a prank! Calm down!”

Marigold in general is cute. Peony’s weird-Evil, but Marigold, she’s just fun and playful. She much prefers setting pranks and scaring people to rambling on about her plans.



I’m amused by this prank in particular. Poor double-blue Joaquin.



Meanwhile, Travis maxes Logic and completes his lifetime wish. Nectar lends a hand as usual. She’s apparently just as aggressive with chess as she was with athletics.

“Mum, please stop! The skilling is over! I’m so hungry!”



And around the same time Angelia becomes an astronaut, also completing her lifetime wish. She and Travis are suddenly enjoying an early retirement together as Adults.



They need something to fill their free time, so Angelia buys a consigned Martial Arts book. They’re picking up the rest of the skill through sparring. Turns out Insane Sims fight in their street clothes, which is somewhat scary to watch.

(don’t mind Nectar. She’s been getting into chemistry lately.)



And of course there's still occasional junkyard visits. Keep the romance alive and all.



They also seem interested in cooking, so I buy a deep fryer and ice cream maker for variety. Both immediately become very popular. Luckily we’re quite a sporty household right now, so the worst that will happen is Joaquin may get slightly chubby.



Even Stella gets in on the culinary craze by stealing baked goods from the fridge.



Hang on… I know YOU can drift through walls, but why did the muffin come too? Is it a ghost muffin? What did Marigold put in those things?



And of course it wouldn’t be Stella if she didn’t perv on people in the shower.



Imagine looking up from your bathtub to see THAT.

“Heeeeere’s Stella!”

And speaking of ghosts…



“Nooo, I didn’t get to eat my delicious deep-fried ice cream!”



“Please please please can I eat my ice cream? I want to live just a bit longer!”
“I’M NOT COMPLETELY SURE THOSE THINGS ARE COMPATIBLE.”



Nectar Jones lived to be a hundred days old on the dot. She was a fun Sim who loved gymnastics and cared deeply for her sensitive husband, Gerard. She died as she lived; in impractical amounts of clothing. Rest in peace, Nectar.



OK, this is getting silly.

“MMM, CALCIUM! GOOD FOR THE BONES.”



“OH MAN. CRANIUM FREEZE!”



“How DARE you? My mother-in-law just DIED!”
“I'M ALSO GRIEVING! I NEED SOME, ER, COMFORT FOOD.”
“You’re UNBELIEVABLE, you know that?!”



“…”
“…”
“…”



“You know some ice cream sounds GREAT right now.”
“AGREED.”

Comfort food seems to be a staple now, which is fair enough I guess.

*sniff* “I will honour my mother, an athletic Vegetarian, with delicious deep-fried meat substances.”



Speaking of meats, it’s time for a party and Booker brought the birthday turkey! (Trust me, it's a thing.) Plus, all the girls’ friends are young adults now, which means everyone can hit on each other’s parents. Gross.



“Wow Peony, your mum sure is cute!”

Yeah, let’s get that cake going.



“CAKE? Who needs cake when you have TURKEY?”



“Marian, be careful! Your bosoms are puncturing the glass!”



Bahahaha, that’s probably the dowdiest she’ll ever look. Gotta love the Agnes hair.



Peony gains the Technophobe trait, which doesn’t make much sense to me. Perhaps new technology will get in the way of her work?



Then it’s Marigold’s turn to grow up. Thankfully, it looks like everyone made it outside this time.



Ben looks as miserable as always and… hang on, what’s happening back there?



“Ice cream. Ice cream is the only thing that matters. Praise Freezer Bunny for this bounty.”

Yeah, that ice cream machine is way too distracting to bring to the next town.





Anway, Marigold grows into Nectar’s old top, which I suppose is appropriate for her new Natural Performer trait. Perhaps in another life she could have been an acrobat too, but she’s already locked into the Empress of Evil wish so perhaps she pull off a cat burglar heist instead.



Looks like someone inherited her mother’s serenity. Now that they’re grown, it’s time for the girls to graduate!



“Aww, I hate sitting in the back.”
“At least it’s better than Joaquin’s seat.”
Mmph! Mmmmph!

Marigold is voted Most Popular, to nobody’s surprise. Peony is Valedicatorian and Most Likely to Never Leave the House (you wish).



Now it’s finally time for the girls to begin independent lives. First up, jobs! Check out the matching uniforms! Looks like the town's crime ring is run from the day spa or something.



Next up, boyfriends! Ben Parrott moves in. This is Ben’s happy face! It turns out his traits are lovely: Absent-Minded, Artistic, Clumsy, Hopeless Romantic, and Social Butterfly. He dreams of renovating 100 homes as an architect. As a friendly, well-adjusted lad, he’s happy to take things slow with Marigold.

Meanwhile:



“Marriage marriage marriage!”
“Yes yes yes!”



“Ice cream?”
“Ice cream.”



And so Tristan becomes part of the family. Isn’t he handsome? His traits are Brave, Technophobe (like Peony, yay!), Clumsy, Light Sleeper, and Dislikes Children. Hmm. Not very happy about that last one. Oh well, he wants to be Leader of the Free World so it’s not like he’ll see his kids much anyway.
