The grannies say that winter always seems like the longest season.  They also say that the teen stage always feels like the longest life period.  So why is it that I feel like everything is always go-go-go?  Two seconds after I had aged up, Grandma Eureka and Grandma Mona Lisa helped me fix my make up and hair.  Like there was no time to waste at all!



I love the color yellow, so Mona Lisa, expert of color palates, helped me pick out the perfect clothes.  My mom wanted to help, but I'd rather just stick to one bright color rather than looking like someone spat rainbows at the sun.



Prom is actually on my first day of school, so I thought I'd embrace the mystery of being the new kid for that.



And for the sake of curiosity, sleepwear:



Exercise wear:



And outerwear:



Yay!  Now you've seen my clothes.  Though I do envy the universe my mother says those who observe us live in.  Apparently there you get a different outfit every day!  That sounds both fun and like it causes a lot of crashing. 

Anyway, we went to the cafe for my birthday, which was fun.  I like to observe the others to see what makes each of them magical.  I especially like how oblivious Granny is when a man is enamored of her.  Is she putting it on or does she really not know?



Each of them has something to teach me.  I just need to sort out who has what and how I can get it from them.



I take notes on my tablet.  I may not look like the other Classics, but I am going to be just as remarkable as each of them.  There's record here that'll show it!



Though I'm not sure I'll ever become quite the master of each of the charms they posses that they themselves are.  That's okay.  I just want to be interchangeable.  A Chameleon girl.



While I was outside taking notes, Eureka and Mona Lisa were baiting a confused zombie on the ground with me by jumping up in the hot air balloon every time the zombie got near enough to want brains.  Eventually Eden shouted at them to stop being inhumane and blasted the zombie with Sunlight.



Apparently they've always been BFFs, those two.  Grandma Rosetta says they used to hang out in Mona Lisa's room listening to music for HOURS, even when Eureka was just a kid.  Knowing the history is important too.  I've gotten a lot of information already!  Anyway, once Eden had gone home, I'm pretty sure the two of them just looked around for more zombies to mess with. 



Granny is considering hiring a barista or two at the cafe, so she asked the current bartender to whip her up some food so she can see what eating there would be like.  She seems pretty happy with it, even if we can't find the barista counter anywhere in build/buy mode.



There's actually a lot of information about the Classics online too.  Granny keeps a blog and the art world loves to gossip about Mona Lisa.  Even when she was young, the story of her runaway bride routine was Simnational news.  Also, apparently Grandma Eden brought someone back to life a few years ago.  Wonder why no one in the house has mentioned that...  Ooh, juicy!  Maybe they don't know!



I'm not going to have a date to prom because I won't have time, so I've spent a lot of time making my bod the perfect machine in the interim.  I still have the exercise equipment Daddy bought for me before he passed away.



I actually really want to be an acrobat like Gramps was.  For some reason I've always had this romantic image in my mind of me, in a sparkly purple leotard, soaring through the air under lights.  But alas, there aren't many venues in town and I have to max a career, so that's not to be.  So, I'm going to be something better.  Something stronger.



My poor mom ... sometimes I think she's going a bit insane, but really she's just a nut.



Actually, maybe it's just best if I never make friends at all...



She's burning off stress.  She's only at level 4 in her career and she's almost halfway through adulthood.  She used some points to buy rebel influence so she could add workaholic to her trait map and work from home to speed up the process.  She's pretty cunning, my mom.  She's also a party animal ... so asking her if we were going to have the Snowflake Party this year, crashes be darned, seemed like a good strategy.



It's more of an opportunity to watch.  And learn.



Silvia Correa, Eden's girlfriend, got me an easel.  I'll not be able to use it until the dynasty is complete, but I am artistic, so it was a nice gesture.  She asked if I'd like to go with herself and Eden to the art museum in the citadel later this week, which sounds awesome!  Then she listened sympathetically while Mona Lisa explained about the missing artwork.



Our universe is in a strange sort of limbo.  Silvia has been a young adult for far too long, even by vampire standards.  And today, two of the very first toddlers Granny took into her care came to our party ... as children!  They should be adults by now.  That daycare was started when my mom was only a teen. 

Anyway, Wendy and Rodalgio.  Still children.  Still human.  No explanation comes to mind.




I took furious notes.  It was an educational party overall, and best of all, I talked Grandma Rosetta into parting with some of her French nectar.



I got to try it for the first time that night, while we did our traditional Breakfast-for-Dinner Classic Snowflake Day Feast.  We talked about my teen artwork pieces a bit, but tried to leave dynasty requirements to the wind for this one night.  It's funny.  We're all so under the wire, but really, we have all the time in the world.

I know it's annoying when one of your sims just doesn't seem as pretty as the others--but they always end up growing on me, so I'm sure Mata Hari will be one of my favorite sims in the future! I love her formal outfit with the mask--it seems to fit her personality!

Mata Hari is pretty, in her own way :) I love her colors! I think she is a perfect example of when she has 2 very good looking parents, but then she gets a bad mix of each of there genetics, the eyeliner really helps though.

Look at it this way: most seventh generation immortals aren't as unique-looking as Mata. The eyeliner definitely helps, though.

Good luck to Allegra with her career too.

I think she looks quite ravishing at times, particularly in the weight machine shots from the previous post.  Let's just say she's unconventional.

They were giggling together and pointing at the zombies.  It was adorable.

This is true.  I've come to terms with it.

Aw.  Do you guys not like Silvia?  I've always enjoyed her, even when it seemed like she was competition for Eden.

I like her. She seems sweet.
I love Mata Hari's teen look! You're right, the mask completely suits her both physically and her character. The bit about the zombies was fun too. And I like how Mata Hari is already plotting to get information from people. I didn't mention before, but I like how her "I'm Mata Hari Classic, and I'm an homage" paralleled "I'm Coralie Classic, and I am a metaphor." I've always liked that beginning.

In the days leading up to my first day of school and my first prom, I spotted a teen boy at my mother's cafe.



I considered the possibility of attempting to charm him and get a prom date, but I decided instead to order a bagel and sit out of his line of sight.  To see if I could learn anything.



He took a call from a possible girlfriend named Helen.  I did not catch his name.  I sipped my coffee and planned my entrance to the prom.  I would lay as low as possible at the school to maximize the impact when it was time to go to the dance.

In the interim, I burned off my stress by learning to snowboard.  The grandmas may complain, but winter is amazing.



The prom arrived on a snowy evening and I timed my entrance and placed my mask.  People love a good mystery and while I stayed silent, I danced with anyone who asked.  It really was a cinch at that point to be voted queen, even if no one knew my name. 

I possibly made a few enemies that night.



The boy was one of my dance partners.  His name is Percy.  While his hair was unkempt, I found him attractive.  Unfortunately, I think he was aware of my attraction, and chose to ask about it when I ran into him at the winter festival that weekend.

It was arrogant.  He is a flirt and I must be careful not to be any one of his conquests.

"What is your name?" he asked.



So I did the sensible thing and snubbed him.  "I have snowboarding to do," I said airily.  "You are welcome to stay and watch."

That was the moment I knew my destiny.  My heart was slamming in my chest, but to him I was as cool as the dusty snow.  I was born to act.



He wore a small smile, his phone blaring off the hook.  I imagined it was pretty, blonde Helen Westmoreland from the prom.  But I stayed focused on my task.  To my delight, I found that the halfpipe had been lit all in yellow.



And soaring through the air as I went, I could see my house in the distance, also draped in yellow lights.



I climbed down and gave Percy the smallest of smiles.  "Goodnight then," I said.  And then I sauntered off, casual as you please. 



I spent the remainder of the weekend carefully avoiding places I might run into him.  The popular teen hangouts - the pub and the cafe, and instead did some volunteer work training elders at the gym.



I ignored the texts he sent.  I was impressed, however, that he'd found my number.



I felt compelled at constant to reach out, to admit I had the BIGGEST crush, but I withheld.  I also liberated my mom's scooter.



I LOVE the winter.  I love the snowy, secret landscape, masking all the secrets of Monte Vista with an enchanting, snow white facade.  I love that if you stare too long it will glare the sun in your eyes.  I love that if you try to possess it, it will melt right through your fingers.



And most of all, I love surprise.  I was training Ms. Tomlin on the rock climbers at the beach when suddenly I had a race contender to my left.



I won, but barely.  I flew down from the rocks, scattering snow all around and he did as well, panting.  "Mata ... Hari.  That's your name, isn't it?  Tell me your name."

I didn't tell him my name.  Not right away.



I do love good sport.



I didn't tell the family that I had a romantic interest.  I knew that it would come with chiding and rules.  After all, I can never marry.  I sometimes sit at Grandma Eunice's old drafting table and look at her nursery designs.  THAT, at least, I can have.



And so, while I wait for Spring, the days of my teendom go in cycles.  I balance the pieces of my life.  Romance with Percy...



Family lessons from Rosetta, master of chemistry



Stolen kisses in the night.



Rooting for my mother's career progression.  Supporting her through her newfound zealousness.



Pointedly avoiding eye contact with the wedding arch at the beach.



Life is really just a waiting game.  A balancing act.  A game of strategy that I will master someday.

Well, it really struck me when I read it, I thought it was such a cool concept, so when Mata Hari brought it back up I though, "Oh, cool!"

Ach! I love this chapter! I can identify more with Mata Hari than anyone since Eden. I can totally feel her desire to be a chameleon. I too have unconventional looks and I never can make up my mind whether I'm pretty or not. I tend more toward the writing and acting rather than spying, but being a spy was always a secret wish of mine and I gobbled up Harriet the Spy, Spy Kids, Get Smart, Gallagher Girls, anything I could get my hands on. At some point it occurred to me that I didn't really want to be a spy so much as I wanted to play one.

Mata Hari gets prettier and prettier the more I hear about her! I'm happy she found love--I have no idea what generation we're on, so is she going to have a baby with or without a husband? Either way, Percy is very cute, and what's even cuter is the way that she handles the relationship!

Haha, I think Rosa and I must be opposites, because I can't identify with Mata any better than I could Eden! Although, I love them both as characters; they're both so charming and outgoing. They really have a way of making you smile. I feel a little sad for Mata, though, playing games instead of just being herself. I probably shouldn't though, she seems to enjoy playing a part.

Mata is so very different from her predecessors. Even if she doesn't look like a Classic, she is still quite lovely in an exotic sort of way. I love how she played hard-to-get with Percy, but I'm even more happy that he persisted. They make a lovely couple, even if they can never wed.

Percy and Mata's story is funny, but doesn't he have that weird greenish hair color that seems to show up on townies all the time?

Also, to clarify what I said about Silvia, I never disliked her. I just never really liked her either. She was kind of a nonentity because it seemed like she was only mentioned in passing and was completely defined by whichever poly-amorous Classic she was in a relationship with.

At some point it occurred to me that I didn't really want to be a spy so much as I wanted to play one.

I'm so glad to hear that.  I thought maybe some people would take offense at her manipulation, but she is devilish in the most charming way.  And she's played people for her own amusement from a very young age.  Also, omg, Harriet the Spy.  I need to go read it again right this very second.  Oh, Nook.  How you make me spend at whim.

Mata Hari gets prettier and prettier the more I hear about her! I'm happy she found love--I have no idea what generation we're on, so is she going to have a baby with or without a husband? Either way, Percy is very cute, and what's even cuter is the way that she handles the relationship!

No husband for Mata.  She doesn't seem like a commitment type person anyway, does she?  Truly Freddie's descendant.

Haha, I think Rosa and I must be opposites, because I can't identify with Mata any better than I could Eden! Although, I love them both as characters; they're both so charming and outgoing. They really have a way of making you smile. I feel a little sad for Mata, though, playing games instead of just being herself. I probably shouldn't though, she seems to enjoy playing a part.

I'm the most like Eureka, honestly.  I really related to her teen years, especially since I had intended all sorts of different things for her, but fate had other plans.  Mata loves her games and ending up with a flirt means Percy loves them too, so no need to feel sorry for her.  I think she'd be bored in a traditional romance.

I love how she is so mysterious! I'm so happy she found love with Percy.

I'm really falling pretty hard for her too.  The more I think about, the more I think she wouldn't have worked half as well if she'd been traditionally pretty.

Mata is so very different from her predecessors. Even if she doesn't look like a Classic, she is still quite lovely in an exotic sort of way. I love how she played hard-to-get with Percy, but I'm even more happy that he persisted. They make a lovely couple, even if they can never wed.

Exotic is always the word I think of when I look at her.  I hesitated to use it because her skin is a bit darker than the earlier gens, but that's not what makes her exotic.  It's something else ... can't put my finger on it.

Percy and Mata's story is funny, but doesn't he have that weird greenish hair color that seems to show up on townies all the time?

Also, to clarify what I said about Silvia, I never disliked her. I just never really liked her either. She was kind of a nonentity because it seemed like she was only mentioned in passing and was completely defined by whichever poly-amorous Classic she was in a relationship with.

That's true, I didn't much expand on her.  Percy does have the puke hair, but I figure I can dye it if the baby gets it.

Was there a time before I became a scheming grandmother?  I'm not so sure.  Of course there were once pictures and sculptures proving I was a child, but those are long gone, much to my mother's chagrin.  I can't mourn overmuch, though.  There's so much to plan for now.  So much to ready ourselves for.



In the days leading up to Mata Hari's adult birthday, all of us were practically buzzing in anticipation.  Mata, rather annoyed by this, kept to her room most of the time.



I am a bit concerned that she's overdoing the weight training.  I ambushed her while she was having a soak after one of her very long workouts, and mentioned that her impending pregnancy might soften her frame a bit.  She began violently splashing the water to the point where I'm not so sure she could hear me anymore.  I'll have to try again later.



I'm quite proud of our girl.  She's found a father already for the final child.  A boy in town named Percy.  I don't know his parents or anyone who may be of relation, but that's quite all right.



Unfortunately, he aged up ahead of her, still with the most questionable fashion sense.  For whatever reason, they can still go on dates, but when Mata Hari attempted to take a romantic photo with her beau, she got a brotherly forehead kiss instead.  She grumbled about it all the way home.



Her aggression was later taken out on a school athletics competition, which she won many times over.  She came home to take furious notes on her tablet and we all avoided her, lest the stormy mood get blown our way.



My daughter and I ate our weekly ambrosia together regularly now.  It is so nice to spend time with her, to feel her warm body next to mine, to smell her earthy scent, and to hear her sweet laugh.  There are many downfalls to immortality, but this is not one of them.



My granddaughter, the least mysterious of my family to me, confided a secret recently.  She's met the 8th.  She's spoken to her.



And perhaps that's what started the scheming.  The preparations.



After all, it was a way to pass the time in those dragging final days of Mata Hari's teen years.  And finally, bright and early on a Monday morning, it was time for her to become a young adult.



This is a girl who never hesitates.  Who never worries.  Who loves the approval of the masses.  Who also understands that Granny doesn't do birthdays.



She was absolutely ready for her sparkles.



We had cake in near silence.  The end was so close.  The final Classic was ready to be made.  Allegra accompanied Mata to her room for wardrobe changes.  She came out sometime later wiping away slight tears.  I imagine it's due to Mata's style choice for her adulthood.



Our Mata Hari has never quite been of this world.  She's never been quite satisfied with Monte Vista.  Seeing her all grown up just confirms that.  Her everyday wear:



Formal:



Sleep:



Sports:



Swim (I told her she was doing too much weight training!):



and Outerwear:



We, none of us, know what she's up to with her career or her plans for Percy.  It's up to us to wait and see and just feel confidant that Eureka knows what she saw.

While we wait for Mata to seal our fate, we all must be feeling something different.  Granny, I think, worries the most about what she'll be if she's no longer a granny.



Allegra worries that she'll not be a rock star until she's too old to look good in the costume.  I don't think she worries about much else.  Allegra is not a worrier.



Eden wonders how many love interests she can have if everyone comes back.



Eureka has moments of ... eureka.



Mona Lisa, my mother, is just as mysterious to me as them all.  Who knows what she could be thinking of.  What she wishes for or fears.



As for me, there's Hiram.  There's endless possibility.  There's the promise of a dream I may one day fulfill ... if we succeed.

Mata Hari is so pretty! And she resurrected the braid . . . sigh  :'( . Her wardrobe really wants to make me get the India Inspirations set, even though I already have some of the hairstyles.

And I love Eureka's "Eureka!" face! It's so funny when sims do that.

Ooh, look at Rosetta's pretty new CC hair! By the way, I finally have to ask, what is Coralie's name based off of? I can't think of any Coralie writers. Mata's Indian style wardrobe is quite fitting. I can't believe we're almost to the final generation!

Rosetta insists on randomly having that hair for some reason.  She's been doing it since her young adulthood and you can see it in some of her career shots.  I've given up on trying to control her.  Coralie's name isn't based on anything.  I did consider changing it to fit the theme of the dynasty, but Coralie Classic really was just a homeless Sim I had in the bin that I'd gotten attached to and I couldn't imagine calling her anything else.

I know, I can't believe it either!  Can't wait to show you guys the nooboo :)

Haha, I think Rosa and I must be opposites, because I can't identify with Mata any better than I could Eden! Although, I love them both as characters; they're both so charming and outgoing. They really have a way of making you smile. I feel a little sad for Mata, though, playing games instead of just being herself. I probably shouldn't though, she seems to enjoy playing a part.

I think what connects them is though both have strongly developed imaginations, although expressed in very different ways. Let me tell you from the perspective of one who is always 'playing a part', it doesn't feel wrong. It feels normal and natural, and fun. I used to worry about always being someone different, but then I realised that that was me, and I've accepted it ever since.

Rosetta insists on randomly having that hair for some reason.  She's been doing it since her young adulthood and you can see it in some of her career shots.  I've given up on trying to control her.  Coralie's name isn't based on anything.  I did consider changing it to fit the theme of the dynasty, but Coralie Classic really was just a homeless Sim I had in the bin that I'd gotten attached to and I couldn't imagine calling her anything else.

I know, I can't believe it either!  Can't wait to show you guys the nooboo :)

I'm fairly certain there is a book title Coralie though. I looked it up after I started reading this story.

I'm looking forward to seeing generation 8! All this mystery about the preparations. . . I want to know what they are!

First of all: I love your story, so well written.

Secondly: I need, need, need Mata Hari's younger hairstyle! I love it. Can you let me know what it's called, pretty please?!
