I would have expected Eunice to get the betrayed moodlet, not Eden. How odd is that?

A very pretty chapter. I'm glad that there will finally be a nooboo in the picture!

Me too!  I've been having toddler cravings :)

What great shots of Eden wooing Freddie on the couch. Her expressions are just so perfectly devious! Also, I think Eden's toy is adorable. And I'm eager to see the next generation; yay, nooboo!

Honestly, I'm confused about what affect the No Jealousy reward has. Sometimes it seems to work for me and sometimes it doesn't.

Yeah, I'm pretty confused about it now too.  It's possible EA just hasn't programmed it correctly.

Hahaha now that's Classic! (Couldn't resist ;)) Sims always surprise you. In-story, it looked like it worked out quite well. I like the second romantic trip to Paris. Rosetta looks quite good as an elder. Your museum looks super pretty, I hope I can make mine that nice! I like Eden's Snowflake Day gift. I think it's appropriate for her. Freddie is so good-looking! I always swoon at him. Hiram is nice as an Elder too. I'm with Eden, I don't like puking either. Eden's maternity night-gown is gorgeous! I like your title. Now I want pizza :(

I can't wait to see the perfectly gorgeous nooboo!

Man, I was thinking the same thing about Freddie in the photo where they're cuddling.  He is just ridiculously handsome.  I also want pizza.

I've been going a little crazy getting ready for the nooboo!  I've made sure every possible surface is clean and baby safe, even though it's my wife with the neat trait!  (BTW, Eunice's traits are good, neat, artistic, loves the outdoors, and loves the cold.  I find this miraculous for a random townie).



Freddie and I have discussed at length the perfect toys and furniture to buy for the little tyke, while Eunice sketches out an ornate nursery that will take the place of Ophelia and Emmett's old room.



She also framed the painting that Gran made for Granny on Snowflake Day and hung it in Granny's room.  Eunice says it's only a matter of time before she handles both of their bedrooms.  She says they're hideous.  She's not wrong.



While I get bigger and bigger, the loves of my life are very supportive.  Freddie loves to feel the baby move.



Eunice loves to listen.



And I even told my flowers and produce that a nooboo is on the way!



Eunice really can't wait to be a Mommy.  She says I am beyond beautiful with my big, round belly.



I think she's nuts.  Unless she is particularly attracted the waddling hippo look.



When labor hit me, it was, appropriately, right in the garden with all the other lives I've grown.  Sherlock was nearby, passing his usual judgement on me.



He was my sole companion through the ordeal, as I wanted to give birth in the greenhouse.  After all, isn't a nursery where babies should be?  Sherlock stayed close, but he never stopped judging.  At least he didn't panic I guess.



Then the sparkles came.  The special magic I've been waiting my whole life for.  Motherhood!



And She was in my arms.  My little princess.  My Eureka.



Of course everyone swooped in to see her as soon as I walked out of the greenhouse, suddenly thin and carrying my nooboo.  Eunice teases me about having a clandestine childbirth.



We all cooed over her.  Whose features would she have?  My honey brown eyes?  Freddie's deep red hair?  Or maybe Daddy's more ginger color?  Oh, she was perfect.  As we played with her, we were able to discern her favorite color: black.  I was disappointed.  I wanted a pink  nursery full of unicorns and dollhouses, but the baby likes black, so that's what Eunice worked with.



Eureka seemed to approve of her living space.



The mere three days of her infancy were a competitive few.  Eunice probably wins for most time spent with the little angel.  I've never seen her quite so happy.



Though all three of her grandmothers got their turns as well.



We all suspect that Eunice is her favorite.



When the morning of her birthday rolled around, I had planned to age her up right away.  I'd bought a cake and everything.  But sometimes a large family  just takes over!  We didn't manage to get her to the cake until she'd almost sparkled up on her own.  Right as the sun was vanishing behind the festival grounds.



I wondered who she'd look like.  I wondered if having three parents and three grandmas would be confusing for her.



Her traits were quite the surprise.  Ladies and gentlemen, we have another blonde.



I did my best with dressing my baby girl in black.  It's such a somber color and I think she'd be much prettier in cotton candy blue or mint green.  Eunice says we must accept her for who she is though.  An eccentric little toddler who loves the heat. 

Here's her every day outfit:



And her sleepwear:



As you can see, she has Freddie's deep, soulful eyes.  It looks like the only piece of me she has at this point is my skintone.  I'm going to be the best Mommy in the world ... or maybe second best next to my superwife.  Just wait and see.  My Eureka is perfection.

The Flower Queen's Daughter is a German fairy tale.  it is a reversal of the Persephone myth, in which the daughter spends her life split between her husband and her mother, by the season.

You did a great job with the black nursery and toddler clothing.

Are we looking at an inventor for this generation?

We certainly are!  And thanks!  Black is a bit of a challenge to work with, but I think it actually suits my plans for Eureka.  I've really been looking forward to her :)

I may be a bit biased on the subject, but I think black (and orange!) work great on an eccentric, inventor girl! Plus, I bet that Loves the Heat trait is going to come in handy. After all, she's going to have her bum lit on fire at least a couple of times. Maybe that won't make her get a negative moodlet? I know Gwenyth, with her Daredevil trait, actually enjoyed being set on fire and would get a positive moodlet! Hehe!

Eureka is lovely. Her face looks extremely mature for her age. She looks very intelligent. The nursery is very nice too, if stark. It doesn't suit Eden at all, but I'm sure it will be perfect for Eureka. Eden's maternity wear was gorgeous! And I love that she had the baby in the greenhouse. I am loath to give her up for the next heir, but I suppose it's either that or the story ends, so my choice is clear!  ;D

Ooh!  I hadn't even considered that!  She actually rolled it randomly (not sure why, Eden was really happy through her pregnancy, but what're you gonna do).  Perhaps it will come in handy.  I did just realize I had considered putting Gwenyth hair on her when she ages up.  See, I was all programed by your story.  Now I have to come up with something more original ;)

I thought she looked much older than a toddler too!  I gave her the bald hair to try to make her look more babyish.  Though if it were up to Eden, she'd have had the cinnarolls and the little bridesmaid dress, all in pink and green.  Eunice keeps her in check :)

Eureka will indeed be very different from Eden, but hopefully just as entertaining.  Plus, Eden will always be back for the odd chapter here and there!  I promise.

Eureka is beautiful! Personally, I enjoy dressing sims in black when they're adults and teenagers, but pretty much ignore their favorite color if it's too somber for me during childhood  :).
Let me guess what her supermax is going to be . . .

« Reply #259 on: January 21, 2013, 12:16:46 AM »
This is really just a chapter of adorable Eureka pictures.  Deal with it.


Eureka is a little ray of sunshine in the house. 



I was worried, what with a little girl who loves the color black and all, but she is perfectly jolly and bright.  In fact, she's such a good little girl that she's already sat for her museum pieces.



Everyone in the house spends time with her.  We even have a lot of visitors who want to see our little princess.  There was one in particular I told to go back where she came from.  Doesn't she have two Classic children of her own?!



Eureka brings together the genes of everyone who's ever lived in this house.  From Carlotta and Ed to Ophelia, everyone contributed a bit to the making of this perfect little girl.



Even Eunice, who may not share any DNA with her, is her mother all the same.



They've been learning to talk together.



Sometimes Eunice can't stay home to work with Eureka, because she's begun doing renovations.  She had her first one this week, and got a tip almost as big as the commission fee!  It's because she's brilliant, you know.  Also, she's willing to stand in the rain.



Granny likes to teach Eureka the family history.  "Writing, art, logic, gardening, and you, my little one," she says.  "Can you say Granny Coralie?  How about Granny Mona Lisa?"



Mona Lisa herself has taken up walking as her task.  She says Eureka is so cute it hurts when she has a successful trip across the nursery floor.



She's also been helping Mom prepare for her grand championship chess match.



As far as potty goes, that one falls on me and Eunice.  We are the Mommies, after all.



I also deal with tantrums and bedtime.



Daddy is so happy to be a grandpa.  He is still a workaholic and at the office almost every second of his life, but he takes time to coo and cuddle Eureka when he can.  He says he'd rather do that than sleep at his age.



Freddie is shaping up to be a wonderful Daddy, even though we faced quite the town scandal when she was born.



I love how alike they can look at times.



On Love Day, I took Eunice to the festival and we danced for a few hours.  It's hard to steal away with a toddler at home, but we made it work.



Meanwhile, Mom was becoming an international chess champion phenomenon superhero.  She accomplished her lifetime wish!



Take that, consignment fairy!

Eureka, having learned all three of her toddler skills, was feasting from her royal throne.  Sampling the very best cuisine prepared by Granny Coralie.



When I put her to bed that night I told her how very proud I was of her for being such a smart girl.  I promised her we'd play dolls the next day as a reward.



And then I slipped a teddy I bought for her in the crib.  She immediately loved it.  She calls it "Cog."  Gran says it's spooky, but Eureka likes it, so there.



When she wakes up in the morning, she's always got it with her now, and refuses to leave the crib without it.  She's definitely a strong minded little thing.  There's some sort of cunning about her.  No, really.  I know she's quite small, but it's there.

I think we're all going to have great fun together in the immortal life to come.





Little Daylight is a fairy tale written by George MacDonald and included as a story within a story in At the Back of the North Wind, published in 1871.  It is similar to the Disney version of the Sleeping Beauty story.

I loved this chapter! It didn't feel like filler to me at all. We're really getting to know their Little Daylight Eureka. I bet there was a big scandal, the townsfolk just can't handle that kind of love. I'm glad the updates are coming fast, it's very exciting!Congratulations to Rosetta! Eureka does look like Freddie, well it's not surprising. She really is a little genetic miracle, all those descendants form the house, how cool.

Well, if you want to use the "Gwenyth hair" it's not like I'm going to be jealous. It's a good hair style, but it makes sense to want to do something different. I have a feeling I'm going to like Eureka quite a lot. She really does have Freddie's eyes, I think.

She is!  I love looking at her and knowing that she's a piece of everyone who's lived in the house so far.  I even count Eunice, even though she's not a genetic mommy.  I thought I wouldn't like Freddie's totally black eyes on a little blonde girl, but I'm goo goo for her.

The Classic House

The Classic House:  A Short Story by Eunice Watkins Classic

Once upon a time, there lived a very special family.  There were grannies and mommies and daddies and grandpas, all living together to take care of a princess named Eureka.



Me, Mommy?

Shhh, darling.  No, this is a princess in a fairy story.

I know, Mommy.  I know.


It was a very important time for the special family.  In addition to Princess Eureka learning her toddler skills, her esteemed grandmother, the Queen Mother Rosetta was only a breath away from becoming immortal!  Her lifetime wish was done, her skill was mastered, and her portrait and sculpture were in the royal gallery.  All that was left was to become the leader of education in her kingdom and she would qualify to eat ambrosia.



Ambrosia means life?  Taste good?

Yes, darling, forever life.  I don't know how it tastes.

We eat some?

You will.  Some day.


The Little Princess, Eureka loved to play!  She had her own toy castle that she reigned over.



And would sometimes play house with the Queen, her mother.



Which mother, Mommy?  I play with both.

That's right, darling, but only Mommy Eden can play dolls.

Mommy Nini plays claw!

That's true.




Queen Eden was almost more of a playmate to the little princess than a Mommy sometimes, though she cared for the little princess like a good Mommy would.



Funny faces!

Yes, and the Queen would sometimes entirely forget herself and play cross-eyed staring contests with the baby princess.

So funny!

I'm sure it is, darling.




But something happened to the Queen one day!  Do you know what it was?  She ... got ... older!



Oh no!

Oh yes.  It happens to us all, my sweetling. 

I 'member.  Mommy said yay!

At first.




Then she had funny hair.

Yes.




The little princess stayed by, happily oblivious, while the once young and beautiful queen began to worry.



To stress.



To absolutely panic.



But Mommy looked the same!

Not to her eyes, darling.

Pooft.

Pooft indeed.


The Queen spent hours in a salon and spa, having volcanic clay baths and professionally styled hair, but still she worries.  Needlessly.



Other Queen still loves her!

That's right, angel.


Besides!  The Queen wasn't the only one with a birthday.

Ooh, me?

Not you, Eureka, the princess in the story.

Oh.  Yes, Mommy.  Hehe.


The Queen, after deciding the best way to immortalize her youth would be to get painted and sculpted in her lingerie, handled her museum pieces prior to the royal party.



The whole royal family gathered to see her blow out the candles.



The oldest queen doesn't much like birthdays, but she always shows up anyway.  She's happy even if you can't see it.

Hehe, Granny.



And then the little princess took a big, deep breath and BLEW out the candles!



The sparkles came and made her long and tall first.



And then girl shaped!  And do you know what trait she got?

No, Mommy, what?

Rebellious!

Oooh!



The little princess, now that she was a big princess, got a brand new bedroom designed by her super smart Mommy Nini.



And new clothes and hair too!



She was going to have a wonderful life!

But Mommy!  No!

What's no, sweetheart?

I'm still a baby.

Yes, but that's just because the game crashed in CAS

What Mommy?

Nothing, darling.  Your birthday is first thing tomorrow morning.  Now we're going to put you to sleep.  Good story?

Good story, Mommy.

Yes yes! I love that! And my game crashes from CAS incessantly, Rhoxi you are so lucky it hasn't happened to you. I always save before CAS because it could crash any time. I love how it was a story! And will she really be Rebellious? Ooooh! And her room is beautiful, and her clothes, yes. She looks like a monster baby in the castle. So cute how Eden crossed her eyes at Eureka, it looks like something she would do. She is still beautiful even if she is older.

Yeah, it is very frustrating.  You're lucky you don't have that problem!  I actually was wondering how the Dojos are doing with glitchiness now that you're so far along?  Is it still smooth gameplay?  And thanks.  Eden gives me the best material, haha.

Yes!  The flirting is minimal, actually, but they make a beeline for each other when he comes back from the races.  They love to talk about animals and are very close.  This is just for you, azokka.  Feel free to caption it:

Oh yes, I wanted her to be rebellious because everyone has been so well behaved so far.  (Also, I figure she'll have better luck exploding furniture with that trait).  I realized after she rolled black as a favorite color that it's kind of perfect!  I need to get her a motorcycle.  I agree, Eden is a gorgeous Sim, even if her traits are the beginnings of my Classic gene pool going toward townie.  I suspect that Eureka will look quite a lot like her in the face, as their child and toddler face shapes are so similar.

And yeah, that cross eyed thing happened for a good half hour in Sim time.  I decided Eden wanted it photographed.

The Willful Child
« Reply #270 on: January 22, 2013, 06:59:37 PM »
We had Eureka's birthday celebration early on Tuesday morning. 



She insisted on lots of black clothes and to have her hair with no flowers or ribbons or anything!  She's still a very pretty little girl, but I can't understand her taste. 



Here's her formal wear, which she insists she'll never use



Sleepwear:



Somewhat alarmed swimwear:



And what I consider quite masculine outerwear. 



She doesn't seem to like her toys very much anymore, except for the blocks table.  She begged and begged for something called a "Workman's bench."  I said, "whatabout a nice, erm, black gumball machine?"  And she said "No, the bench.  Please, Eden."



Yes, she calls me Eden and not Mommy.  Same for Eunice, Freddie, and Mom.  They all get to be first names to Eureka.  It stresses Granny out quite a bit, so she still gets to be Granny.  She's the only one.  Mona Lisa finds it both charming and amusing and quite enjoys spending time with Eureka.



I enjoy what Eunice calls "fatty food therapy" to cope with my alien daughter.



Mom was all like, "Oh, no Eden!  Now it'll never leave.  It's like feeding a stray cat.  That truck will be a permanent fixture here now!"

And I was all like, "Good!" and I stuck my tongue out.

"You're worse than Eureka!"

Probably.  Eureka isn't a bad child, she doesn't misbehave or destruct.  She's just ... very no nonsense.  "Eden," she said yesterday morning.  "It's really a waste of money how we keep calling repairmen.  When I'm a teen, I want to upgrade all of our plumbing."

I said, "Okay.  Want to play dolls, princess?"

And she said, "I don't see how that will improve my handiness."

I might have cried a little, but Eunice took me on a nice date to cheer me up.



Eunice and Eureka are still thick as thieves.  They had a lot of fun at the festival on Leisure Day.



We took a family photo and Eunice even got a commission while we were there.



One of her best clients has turned out to be Freddie's vampire girlfriend, Silvia.  She really likes Eureka's sketches and interior ideas.  She also likes dressing like a maid.  Maybe Freddie's getting bored.



Mom became the superintendent of schools and finally got to eat her ambrosia.



She said it felt like spinning and melting and being completely still, like a frozen ice cold statue, all at once.



But I said my congratulations and am very proud of her.  I have accomplished all of my things except for topping my career already and will hopefully eat ambrosia with the others on the same day I become an elder!  My mom's finished museum is very pretty.



And my daughter's is just beginning.



Life and death are funny things.  Freddie will be an old man soon!  Can you imagine?  And Sherlock is such an old man these days.  He's already 60.  We know our time with him is limited, so we try to play and cuddle him lots, but mostly he wants to nap.



Granny tries to get him and Moonglow to bond, but she always ends up stuck in the stable and the Watcher has to reset her.



I started my upgrades on the pub.  Eunice is gonna do some art and curtains for it and repaint the walls, but I've added games and a tv and professional bar.  I hired some bartenders and installed ice cream machines and a chocolate fountain!  Because it's an Eden pub, not a stinky old Worries and Woes pub anymore.




Eureka and Eunice like the claw machines.



I asked Granny what she liked and she said, "whatever that contraption that lets me beat the snot out of gnomes is.  I like that a lot!"  I think Granny needs to get out more.

Congratulations on your 3rd Immortal! I love Eureka's attitude--can't wait for her teenage years!

Yeah, it is very frustrating.  You're lucky you don't have that problem!  I actually was wondering how the Dojos are doing with glitchiness now that you're so far along?  Is it still smooth gameplay?  And thanks.  Eden gives me the best material, haha.

Despite the fact that I spent a large portion of the day resolving a problem that had partly to do with my laptop and partly with the game file (finally got it to work again though!), it hasn't been too bad. Traveling is buggy, so I don't do that. And every once and a while the game freezes for about ten seconds. What I found to be very helpful today is to go into your save file and delete the China/Egypt/France.nhd files. My save had gotten so massive that the laptop couldn't load it, but that resolved the issue because those files get so large. Apparently it works like clearing your cache files.

I absolutely love Eureka's no-nonsense attitude. It's so much the opposite of her mom, which makes for some great banter. Wow, Rosetta ate ambrosia at 86! You must have really been starting to panic. I love Seasons, but I don't love work getting canceled all the time for my teacher when I'm trying to max their career! Eden's pub re-model looks great.

Wouldn't deleting those packages reset the adventures and everything to do with traveling like vacation houses?
