He's a green James Dean.  That babyface is devastating! 

Is it weird that I feel like a proud parent (or how I imagine one would feel) when people compliment my sims? I know I had nothing to do with it, yet I still beam happily as if I was somehow responsible for them turning out well! Okay, yeah, that's probably a little weird.

Everette and Marissa . . . sitting in a tree . . . (making rainbow) N-O-O-B-O-O-S. Everette and Marissa . . . Marissa and Everette . . . M and E . . . E hearts M . . . it's just too cute! Everette is extremely handsome, and reminds me very much of Carmen. I wonder why?

I'm glad you think so, too! He's a proper sim, so I like to think that he's quite dapper! It's nice to see Carmen's genetics preserved in a future immortal like that.


Two Down . . .

Leisure Day rolled around and everybody wanted to throw a pool party. It seemed like a good opportunity for the rest of the family to get to know Nolan's children, so I invited them.

Erica Wolf decided to show up, too. I guess werewolves, being such savage creatures, don't have a very good fashion sense!



Well, it's all fun and games, they say, until somebody gets hurt.



Yup, Grim decided to crash the party and take Carmen to the afterlife at the ripe age of 100.

As so many had done before him, Carmen begged for more time.



I have to admit, this was one sim I wasn't ready to let go of. In a dynasty, you're usually ready for spouses to move on, but I'd gotten really attached to Carmen. I'm glad Everette looks so much like him. Sometimes I see Everette and for a second I think it's Carmen. It's a nice reminder.

His passing was hard on everyone. Carmen had always been shy, so in order to keep him from getting negative moodlets, I had taken special care to make sure every member of the house stayed friends with him. I think Samura and Gwenyth felt it the most, though.

It weird how sims have a mind of their own. When I left them to act autonomously, Samura was always seeking out Carmen to chat and brag about her broom riding.



Carmen, however, was always seeking out Gwenyth. Always.



No one was much in the mood to party after that, so the Dojo household packed up early and headed home.

Grim didn't give them much time to recoup. He showed up just two days later to claim another member.



So they dealt with their losses the sensible way.

By stuffing their faces with pie, of course!



Both a son and a son-in-law, gone. Yes, Samura, it's been a messy week.



Oh, and, I mean that literally too. Might want to go wash your face.

Whoops, I apparently wasn't including him into the story much, then! Haha, oh well, it's hard when they aren't up to much anymore.

A bit behind so...Welcome to Everette, the mini Carmen. R.I.P Carmen and Owen. Samura has had a pretty messy week.

Glad you got caught up, then! "Messy" seemed like a fitting theme, seeing as Owen died at home while everyone else was in the middle of that pie eating contest!

R.I.P Carmen and Owen. Poor Samura, she had a hard week indeed. The pie on the face is funny though.

I was surprised it stayed on there! I figured it would disappear right after the contest, so when I saw her flying home on her broom with it, I had to snag a shot for laughs.

Wow, two family members in one day. Poor Dojo Dynasty :(

I think it was really a day later, or maybe two, I forget. Still, very close proximity!
 

A Prom Date for a Proper Sim

Everette continued to romance the lovely Marissa Rodgers.

Marissa: "What? Flowers, for me?"

Everette: "They're as purple as you are, gorgeous!"



Everette: "And, I have to tell you something: I must confess that I'm terribly attracted to you! Might I have a kiss?"

Marissa: "You might. Try and find out!"



Everette: "See you at school tomorrow!"

Marissa: "Okay!" *giggles*

While Everette made it to school on time, eager to hang out with Marissa, his father Gage was quite late.

The local ghosts decided to play a prank on him and frighten him on his way out to work.



Annalove: "Great idea, Pablo! It's nice having another ghost around."

Well, enjoy it while you can, Pablo. You and your ghostly cooking skills are too risky to keep around. The second that grave of yours re-appears it's off to the family graveyard lot with you!

He gets in a few more laughs while he can.





Ah, good times.

Anyway, Everette met a couple of new students at school--Dina and Marie Quarles--freshly aged up to teen.

They invited him home after school, so he went.

Here's Dina, with eyes as grey as the rain she's in.



And Marie, with a face hauntingly similar to Samura's.



Only a couple of days after that, he also met Lorena and Kimberly Dent at school--also freshly aged up to teen.

Lorena, with her yellow eyes.



And Kimberly, looking quite a bit like a blue version of Gwenyth.



And, Everette, you're still going to the prom with Marissa?

Everette: Um, sure. *whistles innocently*



Oh, boy.

I still ship Everette/Marissa, which has no bearing on the fact that Marissa is a palate-swap of the lovely Sophie Rodgers, no sir.

Yay! Finally caught up!
You've been going at this firing all cylinders, Rhoxi!
So, so sorry to see Carmen go. He was one of my favourites since the beginning. I love the picture of him all sparkly before he goes, though. What a very special Sim he was!
Saying that, Owen's demise was pretty sad too.
As for the latest developments... Kimberley seems sooo cute. Not sure she has the yellow eyes, though. But then again, it's not all about genetics, is it? Only love can take a Dojo over the rainbow and back.  ;D

The A Foretold Gift Giving Party

Despite having accomplished the mission for which he was born--providing generation four with excellent, marriageable options--Nolan couldn't resist having a few more adorable nooboos with his first and favorite lady friend, Sophie Rodgers. His final three children are:

Jesse Rodgers, a fairyboo with yellow eyes.



Lea Rodgers, a fairy-rainboo.



And Lester Rodgers, another fairy-rainboo!



Who knows? At the rate that fairies live, this little man could go grow up to father the final generation!

In preparation, Nolan concocts a few Potent Cure Elixers, just in case.



Everette celebrates his young adult birthday.



He receives a make-over.



Then later that day, the family celebrates Snow Flake day with the gift-giving party you saw foretold so long ago.



Which girl was it that he so eagerly looked forward to seeing at the party?



Why, Marissa Rodgers, of course!



They did indeed go to prom together, just as Everette said he would.



A proper sim wouldn't very well stand a girl up, now would he?

Ha, that prom picture.  I love when they swap obvious gender spots in those photos.  Keep bringing on the rainboos.  The pink fairy toddler who's super bald looks like she's got good bones to be a looker later on!

She does indeed grow to be quite beautiful, and she looks so much like her mother! Well, I haven't had the most manly sims in my dynasty, so maybe they thought a little gender swap was in order: first a cowardly, pink school teacher, and now a baby-faced photographer! Haha! You work with what the game gives you, eh? I had originally intended Gage to be quite masculine and with a mohawk, but then he turned out pink. Nope, no criminal career track for you! Here's the cowardly trait and a change of career plans to boot.

Nolan! Twenty-three children... and counting?  :P

He eventually had so many children that it broke the family tree, so I can't count them all very easily (or maybe that was from traveling?), but it was at least twenty.


One to Go

Having done all that was required of him, and more, Nolan began to feel very tired.



When he realized that Grim was coming for him, he actually clapped his hands and cheered. In some ways, Nolan had had a wonderful life. He accomplished his lifetime wish to raise five children from babies to teens. He had so many lovely children, with whom he had good relationships with for the most part--all the rumors had hindered that somewhat. In the end though, he had purchased a clean slate and made Sophie Rodgers his one and only, and they had had several more nooboos (the fairyboos you saw earlier).



On the other hand, he hadn't had time to make right his relationships with his own family. The Dojo household hated him, utterly, for his cheating ways. Why couldn't they understand he had done it all for them? He begged Grim for just a little longer.



Don't worry, Nolan. When they see how happy Everette is with your daughter, they'll understand. They'll accept you again one day, I'll make sure of it.

Another pair of birthdays soon rolled around. Gage and Marivell grew old together--one of the benefits of marrying your imaginary-friend-turned-real!



Here they are after their make-overs.

At first, I kept Gage in his vest, instead of going with the Japanese look for elder clothes like I had with Samura and Gwenyth. I changed my mind on that later and re-did his everyday and formal wear, but here he is for now:



Marivell aged up with white hair, but it looked so odd on her since she'd always had pink. I re-colored her hair to try and make it look like pink hair gone grey, although I don't think it shows up well in these pictures.



Well, I know it's been a depressing couple of updates, what with three sims dying, so I think I'll go ahead and end on a happy note.

Everette pops the big question!



And she accepts!



Which means up next is bachelor party fun, wedding fun, and Gage becoming immortal. Whoo!

I love Gage's Bowler hat. Ever the dapper gentleman. It kind of reminds me of a toned down version of Fred's southern gentleman look when he got old.

Aw, bless you for remembering Fred! I do miss him. Had I not fallen in love with "fun color" sims, I would have re-started with him, but it just didn't feel right to change his skin color.

Yes! Finally Everette proposed, it's about time, the lazy-- Marissa and Everette are getting married! Woohoo!

I know, right! Some sims don't know when it's their time to move on and open up more space in the house!


Additions to the Household

Gage had long since fulfilled his other requirements, so after a quick portrait and sculpting session with grandma Samura, he was good to achieve immortality.

The first bite:



And whoosh, sparkles!



Gage Dojo: Immortal the Third
Supermax: Logic
Career: Education
Black Ops: A French Puzzler, A Public Speaking Event, Tutor Me Please, A Small Painting, Charismatic Cash, The Dish Showdown
LTW: Chess Master
Property: The Toadstool
Building: Sam's Diner
LTRs: Better Mixologist, No Bills Ever, Teleportation Pad
BFFs: Savannah Barrios, Marivell Dojo, Sophie Rodgers, Jasen Quarles, Marie Quarles, Everette Dojo
Portraits and Sculptures for all Life Stages: Complete

Everette and Marissa enjoyed the spring festival together. Love tester, prepare to be broken!



Gage, meanwhile, had an important piece of business to attend to.

He paid a visit to Dewayne Quarles, but he was surprised by what greeted him at the door.



Dewayne, you've become a werewolf. Okay, hm. Well, that's all right. Let me just fetch something and I'll be right back.

*crash!*



Feeling significantly less hairy? More human? Excellent! Want to move in with us?



With Dewayne successfully added to the household, the boys headed out to the Red Velvet Lounge for a bachelor party.

The party was such a big hit, even the undead couldn't resist making an appearance at the biggest party of the year!



The invitation said "Dress to Impress."

Apparently, Dewayne thinks zebra stripes are the way to impress, while Jasen finds diving gear more appropriate. I swear, sims need a better fashion sense!



Well, at least Everette and Gage were looking suave, even if no one else was!

Everette: "I'm gonna getcha, dad!"



And soaked!



I guess the other party guests thought Gage looked thirsty, too.



In closing, the Dojo household adopted a kitty! Here's Decker Cat:



Isn't he just adorable with his angled face and bobbed tail!

Thanks! I'm so pleased at how well this attempt is going! No matter what, I'm finishing this story, even if something should go wrong and make it not HoF worthy. Still, fingers crossed!

Scary cool! I like the blue werewolf look!

He is pretty cool looking as a werewolf, but I think he looks pretty good in human form too (once he gets a make-over, that is!).

It's so weird to see Gage and Marivell as elders . . . Wasn't it only yesterday they were going to prom?

Well, I have been flying through this story as of late, maybe that's why! Gage makes a good grandpy, though; old age suits him.


Spring Wedding

Rain began to fall on the morning of their wedding, but Everette was too excited to care.



After all, he was finally getting married to the woman of his dreams: Marie Quarles!



I'm sorry, were you expecting a different purple girl?

Marie: "This is so sudden! I mean, we've been friends for so many years, but--yes, yes, yes! Of course I'll marry you!"



Wait, aren't you dating her half-sister?

Well, he was.

Everette: "I'm sorry, Marissa, but it's over! I'm in love with Marie!"

Marissa: "But we've been dating for years! What's going on, Everette?"

Everette: "She just graduated high school, so I don't have to hide my feelings anymore! I'm in love--she looks so much like Samura!"



Marissa: "Hold on. You want to marry someone who looks like your great-grandmother? What is wrong with you!"

I mean really, let's face the facts: when you can marry a girl who looks like Samura, why would you chose a girl who looks like Sophie Rodgers? Sorry, Sophie, but Samura's got you whipped any day of the week!


                                        Sophie                                      v.                                    Samura



Ladies and Gentlemen, our choice is clear.

Okay, maybe I'm a little biased! A little. Maybe.

The point is, I couldn't resist a face that looked so much like Samura, so please welcome the latest member of the Dojo household: Marie Dojo! Here she is in all her make-over glory:



And, just to emphasize the similarity, here's a look at her in Samura's hair style and color:



Despite the rain, the wedding was lovely. Plus, you know what this means next: nooboo!



I mean, seriously, was anybody shipping Everette and Marie?



Anybody?
