I know, the ladies get a lot of fan mail.

But it almost broke the game, I had about 3 minutes of lag when the game tried to produce all those popups at one time. A tip is to always check mail each day, I'm usually lazy with that but after the "scare" I got better at it.

I think it's deliberate sabotage. Nine more days, Beata. Nine more days.

She can do it; the whole forum's cheering for her.

Chapter 204: Come take a ride in my space ship
« Reply #679 on: January 06, 2013, 06:24:03 PM »
Mom and Dad are so cute together. I wonder if I'll ever find someone as special? Grandma K says there is a "the one" for everyone, but so far I haven't met anyone here in Sunset Valley that gave me that stuck by lightening feel. Maybe once this dynasty is complete I can move somewhere else to meet love...


Dad stays over most nights now. I heard grandma S and grandma F talking about him being glitched, since he's just around 10 days younger than mom, but he's still around. I don't know what they are complaining about... Maybe he's figured out how to make ambrosia too?

Anyway, they mostly watch the stars together. The grandmas spend most of their time on the skating rink. Winter has just started and soon there will be snow and skating in the park.



I work on my fashion designs most nights, I've got to keep sharp so I can rise to the top of the stylist ladder.


Cary: Tonight was wonderful as always.
Greta: You are staying the night, right?
Cary: Of course, I just wanted to tell you anyway.
Greta: Why don't you go inside and get ready for bed, I'll be right in.



Greta: *thinking* Huh, whats that?


Greta: Hello, is anyone there?


Greta: Wait! No! Stop!


Greta: Heeeeeeeelp!


*crickets*

Watcher: Greta! Come back. Curse you aliens! That's my toy, gimme back!



Watcher: Greta, your back!
Greta: Can you believe the nerve of those aliens? They wanted to clone me and use me in some kind of handyman challenge! I am a dynasty girl! I would never! A clone! There can only be one Greta!



Cary: Hey Love, what took you so long?
Greta: Oh, just some aliens...
Cary: Are you all right?
Greta: When I'm here with you, always. Let's just cuddle, OK? I'm feeling kind of probed.



And then the snow came.

Tuesday saw be back at work fixing the fashion of the Valley again. Since winter had arrived a lot of people asked for a second and third everyday outfit, I obliged with heavily padded overalls.


I also met the cutest cat with kittens. The family wanted to pay for my services with one of them, but since I didn't know if I would be staying in Sunset Valley for long I was hesitant to accept. Besides, I need the money to reach the top of my career.


And then it happend!

I didn't plan it at all, the watcher was screaming "no, no, no!" in the back of my head but what could I do? When the thunderbolt strikes, you know it's love.

His name is Lydell, Lydell Silverman and this is how we met:

He's the new tattoo artist at the salon and as usual I offered to give him a free makeover. He said OK (like they always do, the poor unsuspecting fellows) and as soon as I was done I rolled a wish to kiss him. I also wanted to find out more of his traits and give him an amorous hug. It's fate - right?



But I decided to play it cool, I know some guys don't like it when a girl comes on too strong.

Beata: Wanna have a snowball fight?
Lydell: Yay! That sounds like so much fun! (Did I mention he's excitable? Oh, and a hopeless romantic?)



Beata: Now, let's build a snowman.
Lydell: Woho!



Beata: I said we, that means you have to help.
Lydell: Sorry, I'll make sure we build the best snowman there ever was. Bigger and better than the one on the Sims book of Records. (Yeah, he's a bookworm too.)



Beata: Did I mention my grandmother is Klara Aurora?
Lydell: The author?
Beata: The very same.
Lydell: You are so cool!



Beata: Thank's to you the snowman turned out great. Oh, look, it's time to leave work. What do you say we go down to the festival lot and take a peak at the coming attractions?
Lydell: Sure thing.



Once I lured him to the park, ehrm, once we got there I mean. I decided that I had to put him to the final test. Was he "the one" for me? It was time for you know what...

Beata: Lydell, I just met you, and this might sound crazy but...
Lydell: What?



*smooch*


Lydell: You're feeling it too? This is the best day of my life!



Beata: As long as you tell me that you don't have a girl- or boyfriend I'll make it even better...


Lydell: I'm sing....*smooch*


So there you are. I thought love would never come for me, but I was wrong. Love can come any time, you just have to be open to it. Like when I looked in Lydell's eyes and it just said click.

I know right? I hadn't planned on it, and she's never really had any romantic wishes towards anyone she's met, and she's best friends with at least three fourths of the town, but once she saw Lydell he was all she was thinking about.

It's so nice that Beata is finally finding love! I can hardly tell that she's an Adult--she still seems like a teenager! I can't believe she'll be an Elder soon . . . it's happened too quickly!

I think it's this hair from the store. I got it with the Boho-mens collection.

And I'll miss them too. My first ever generational game that has gone past two generations is almost at the end. It feels surreal.

Chapter 206: Simply Stylin'
« Reply #687 on: January 06, 2013, 07:53:53 PM »
Next day everything was just a little bit brighter. Maybe I just had an extra spring in my step. Anyway, my clients were drawn in by my fun and carefree mood. This is Kylie Bacon, one of my best friends. I had to become friends with her, because anyone named after meat is all right in my book.


I had more weather related calls, like this gentleman who wanted something more snow appropriate.


It's a good think that he was happy with his makeover, since that pushed me all the way to the top of the stylist career. A LTW and a Career requirement completed in one go! All I need now is for my elder museum pieces to be made and I'm done. I'll have to wait 4 days though, before my birthday.


Beata: Guess what!
Lydell: *thinking* You wanna have my babies?



Beata: I maxed out the stylist career!
Lydell: Congratulations. *thinking*Maybe I should ask about those babies anyway? Wait, maybe that's moving to fast...



Beata: So, wanna come over to my place tonight?
Lydell: I'd love to, and I'm looking forward to meeting your grandma. *throws himself in her arms*
Beata: *thinking* That's what they all say, and then they realize I have six of the crazies running around...
Beata: See you at six!



At home I switched into my new work outfit - it's stunning! And it goes so well with my hair!

I decided to call dad over so he could hear the good news. And meet Lydell.



When Lydell rang the bell I suddenly got nervous and decided to dress to impress, so he'd be blown away by my beauty. I shouldn't have bothered, he only had one thing on his mind. And it had nothing to do with me in my swimsuit. At least dad was glad to see me.


Having Lydell over I was suddenly nervous. I quickly changed into my pirate costume, I needed to be brave for what I was about to ask him...

Beata: So....
Lydell: So...
Beata: Wanna be my boyfriend?
Lydell: Of course, I was gonna ask you!



Beata: Well, I asked first.
Lydell: Bet I thought of it first.
Beata/Lydell: I love you!



Mom/grandmas: Aaaaaaw...


Frida: Where's the camera when you need it?



Beata: Why don't we go to my room and celebrate?


Greta: Well, I've never!
Selma: She's an adult Greta, beside it's not like you're that innocent.
Elise: *faking Greta's voice* Let's go to my room for some time alone Cary. Cary why don't you and I get some private time. Oh, Cary watching the stars with you is so romantic, it makes me want to - you know what.
Greta: Stop it you guys!
Cary: Greta, why don't you and I talk about this - in private?
Greta: All right.
Selma: Like we don't know what that means...



While the grandmas where bickering with mom, me and Lydell celebrated our first night as boyfriend and girlfriend. He lavished me with attention and love.


Soon I fell into an exhausted sleep while he spent some time in the company of his second favorite Aurora.


I think I landed myself a good one. Take that watcher!

Chapter 207: A key to success
« Reply #690 on: January 07, 2013, 04:06:53 AM »
Early next morning I was awakened by a call from the mayor. "We have a fashion emergency at City Hall, come asap!"

Well, turns out all he wanted was for me to bow down before him...



Mr. Mayor: Thank you Beata Aurora for putting Sunset Valley on the fashion map once again. Take that Bridgeport and Starlight Shores!


Headband girl: Woot! Fashion!
Sari girl: I'm getting a jumpsuit too, Beata knows whats in and what's out.
Beata: *thinking* A likely victim is spotted, go away Watcher, I've got a job to do.



Here you can see my rewards, my adult exhibit is now complete.


The grandmas spent all day down at the festival lot, skating of course.


Grandma K is surprisingly limber for someone who is like a gazillion years old.


Grandma E went looking for more exciting new experiences, and found them at the half pipe.


When I got home I put up the holiday lights. The house now feels very welcoming.


There must be something in the air, a tension that mounts now that we are close to the finish, because the ghosts have been a lot more active recently.

Grandpa VJ is very annoyed with the weather.

Ghost VJ: We didn't have snow in my time, and we did just fine anyway. What is it with these modern inventions taking over the Valley?



When the gnubb set snubbed him, he decided to use his ghostly energies in other ways.


Sylvester is also out creating art. His latest creation is a snowman in the graveyard.


Of course, all that hard work makes him sleepy. How fortunate there is somewhere close at hand where he can rest.

Chapter 208: 4 days till elder
« Reply #691 on: January 07, 2013, 04:50:18 AM »
So with nothing more left to do (except become an elder and get my museum exhibit done) me, mom and the grandmas had four looooong days to fill.

First up. Everyone knows you can never go wrong with a party. Especially not if you have a resident musician, and ladies who's perfected the art of dancing. To bad Lydell had to work. I played truant myself, you've got to have some perks being number one.



Mom and dad had a private moment outside. Mom's told me her fondest wish is to propose to dad. If everything goes according to plan, she'll soon be able to.


With ten people hanging out at the house most nights, we've had to add more living room furniture.


Then it was of to the spa for some relaxation. It's like we are paying ourselves when we go there.


Grandma K finished her masterpiece book about me The 8th Immortal, it was a best seller, but didn't quite reach the glorious high of mom's book The 7th Immortal. It still holds the record as the highest royalty she ever received, with its' 30,259 simoleons.

Now grandma K's got it into her head that she want's to write at least 80 novels before this is all through, so she just stays at her computer when we go out.



Speaking of out, this is what all the other grandmas are up to when they are not at the spa or watching TV.


I just spend time at the saloon drowning in Lydell's eyes...


...kissing Lydell...


...and keeping Lydell from working...

Costumer: Ehrm, excuse me. I had an appointment...



It goes so far that the manager has to send me outside to "cool off".


Uhg, brain freeze!


But I just can't help myself. I'm insane, insanely in love with Lydell. It goes so far that I've even started keeping my eyes open at night.


Just so I can watch him in my sleep.

Some guys would think that was creepy, but Lydell swears he's trying to learn to do that too. Just imagine, soon we will both be able to gaze into each others eyes all the time. Yep, we're crazy, crazy in love.



Mom's alien admirer comes around every night, but we are all weary of inviting her/him/it inside. The last thing we need right now is an alien complicating matters.


Tomorrow is my birthday. My elder birthday. I'm just scribbling down some ideas for my new wardrobe. Elders can look stylish too!

Chapter 209: An elder wardrobe
« Reply #692 on: January 07, 2013, 05:37:28 AM »
No sooner had we all gone to bed the day before the big day, when someone decided to crash the party a little early.


Auroras: Fight, fight fight!

As we were staning there chanting we couldn't decide what was more annoying, the bleeping of the alarm or the umbrellas getting in the way of the view.

Grandma J slept through it all as always, sometimes I wish I was a heavy sleeper too.



We made ample use of our rocking chairs and the new glazed in veranda, to recuperate before the party.


By the time the guests were arriving it was pouring down rain.


It was a good thing we decided on setting up the cake indoors for this party.

Beata: Hey everyone, time for cake!



Watcher: Blow, blow, blow the cake...
Beata: Watcher, be quiet and let me do my thing or I might decide not to age at all!
Watcher: Sorry, I'll just go back to watching then...



Beata: Let's paaarty!


The party was well attended.

Everyone: Congratulations!



Beata: Shush everyone, the sparkles are here.


Well, I think this picture says it all. Sometimes you think you're going to get a wonderful surprise, and all you get grey hair and a boring outfit.

I had cake, then I ran for the mirror.

Chapter 210: The sweet taste of victory
« Reply #693 on: January 07, 2013, 05:59:00 AM »
In other dynasties time and effort are spent on getting high value museum pieces. This is not other dynasties, this is the Aurora Dynasty and here we are more interested in a speedy completion of all tasks. Because we know that what comes after we have completed the dynasty is just as important as what happened during it. And we're all so looking forward to our price.

Statue done, photo taken.



Painting done, rain or shine.


And let me present you with the eight elder exhibit. Requirements done? Check, check, check, check, check, check, check, check!


Beata: Come on, come on, come on! Where's the fast forward button on this thing?


Finally!


Watcher: Stop! I wanna take a picture first.
Beata: Fine, one photo but then I'm eating this thing.



Beata: I feel... a little younger. Happy now?
Watcher: Ecstatic!
Beata: So, can I?
Watcher: Do whatever you want, I'll be down in the museum counting...



Beata: And the winner is - me!


Julia: Come on everyone, they are playing our song.

We are the champions, my friends.
And we kept on fighting to the end.

Yes!
We are the champions,
we are the champions.
on this day!


Now I'll let the watcher speak, we all know she's been dying to get a word in edgewise...
