*sound of cork popping* Woo! Let's celebrate baby Champagne! And all the Classics! Allegra's elder clothing is just wonderful; it's very much "her." It's so exciting to see the final generation, but at the same time it's so sad! I don't want the Classics to end, dang it! Although, I am sure I will enjoy reading about whatever adventures you get up to next.

Yay, the eighth generation is here! (Plus 10,000+ exclamation points . . .)

Welcome, baby Champagne! What an fitting name!

Allegra seems like she really belongs in Aurora Skies, for some reason--maybe because she has the hair, and it seems like her wardrobe is colorful and festive without being too "city"!

I haven't played there enough yet to see the townies, but I like the idea of her somewhere so colorful!

When I read The Name...I had a tiny gasp, and then sighed. So perfect. It was like a commercial I just saw where a woman kept her eyes open for 23 hours and closed them when she ate some chocolate. So perfect. I love it. And as for its not being a girl's name, I have met girls named Champagne. So worry not on that count.

Wonderful!  I'm wondering if I should come up with a way to shorten it, but for now I'm happy with the full name.  That commercial sounds delightful.

Gorgeous name.  I wish you all the best on finishing!

Thanks!

Yey update and even better, Eden's there (I've started a new family since - hello childish trait!)

Welcome to little Champange; I bet she's gonna be a cutie.

Almost finished though *sadface*

Don't be sad!  I personally can't wait until the challenge itself is over and I'm no longer bound by rules!  Oh the fun will be had.

That's true, reading lots of updates at one time is a great thing. ^^
Well, seems like we have a little Nectar Maker growing up?? Champagne is really a lovely name, let's hope she is as zippy as her namesake. But do I really have to wonder?  ;)

Yep, Eden has already started planting grapes for her!

Welcome baby Champagne! That picture is adorable. I know all burritos look the same, but just that expression . . .

I can't believe it's almost over. Just this one last Gen . . .

I know, I always fool myself into thinking I can see uniqueness in the burritos, but obviously they are all exactly the same.

Welcome, baby Champagne! May all your sparkles be good ones.

Congratulations on the 8th Generation! Welcome baby Champagne!

Oh my gosh I can't believe you're almost done. Congratulations, and welcome baby Champagne! (And how wonderful that Percy was only a close call...)

Thank you all!  I have high hopes for our little Bubbly.

I hope she doesn't get Mata Hari's you know whatness... I bet she'll be a cutie :)

She didn't ;)

Welcome to a world of elderly women and stalkers from another dimension, Champagne!

Living the dream, right?

*sound of cork popping* Woo! Let's celebrate baby Champagne! And all the Classics! Allegra's elder clothing is just wonderful; it's very much "her." It's so exciting to see the final generation, but at the same time it's so sad! I don't want the Classics to end, dang it! Although, I am sure I will enjoy reading about whatever adventures you get up to next.

I'm pretty attached to them, myself.  Maybe I'll pull a "you" and do a sequel so I can keep playing them and following up on what they do next.  I've got a pretty good idea of what I want to do after Champagne (hopefully) eats her ambrosia!

It is difficult to accept, after so many centuries, that the final child has been born into my house.



It's hard to believe I planted a seed that grew this large, isn't it?  I almost always sort of worried that I'd fail, but the option was never there.  As soon as Carlotta had moved in, zeroing me in with her deep blue eyes, believing in me, cuddling baby Mona Lisa and whispering confidence in her little ears, and now here we are, and the last is a wriggling little baby girl.



We are almost out of space here in the house.  (Can you believe that!)  We added the nectar makers to the butler's room.  I know it seems a bit rude, but we have a rotation of butlers, so no one lives there full-time.



We also have a rotation of care for little Champagne.  Eden's enthusiasm with the baby powder has already caused two maids to quit.



When she's a little older, we'll renovate Eden's nursery for Champagne.  For now, she's sleeping in Mata Hari's crib in Allegra's room.  It's a risk to go into build/buy or CAS at all these days, so late in the game, so there's no need to risk it so early in her life. 

Though that life is already flashing by at light speed.



The girls are always so enthusiastic when there is a birthday.



And someone generally cracks wise about how I'm not, but allow me to explain.  With every new life stage, we're closer to the end of a project I thought would never end.  I cannot see past that.  What then? 

Uncertainty frightens me.



And suddenly here's baby Champagne, sparkling and becoming her own person.



Her hair color is a bit of a mystery.  Pretty, though.  And those eyes.  We all know where those came from.



She lists black as her favorite color, but Mata Hari insists it was a "clerical error," and Bubbly loves pink.



So, she's covered in all things pink.  Adorable.



And has a hard time staying still.



I got a letter the day she was born, you know.  An impossible letter.  A letter from Ophelia, my lost adoptive daughter.  My sister in the building of this dynasty.  It was a gift.  Another little doll, for Champagne.  Its name is OJ.  I will give it to her when the moment is right.



For her part, Mata Hari burned off her baby weight in no time.



She started work as a snitch for the police department.  Bizarrely, her work uniform is also Eastern in style.



She is away a lot, but there's no concern for attention to little Champagne.  She is awash in cooing grandmothers.



Rosetta has taken her general position of taking over hygiene and potty training.



Champagne loves the walker, and we thought like Mata before her, she'd teach herself to walk.



But, Rosetta couldn't resist the lure of spending even more time with her, especially as my daycare center is no more.  We all have a bit of toddler withdrawal.



Well, I honestly can't blame her.  In all honesty, I'm a bit jealous!



Eureka has taken on speaking.  Champagne reacts most favorably to things that relate to luxury.



She's also quite fond of her own reflection.



If ever we aren't attentive often enough, she waits patiently, but with a guilt-inducing pout that'll melt your heart into a puddle.



It's the cycle they've all been through.  All of my girls have been adorable toddlers in my arms.  All of them have gone through the motions.



And oh how I'll miss those days when they're gone.  Oh how I wonder what comes next.

It's good to know that Mata Hari has gotten back into life! So to speak.

Champagne's hair is so pretty! After this dynasty is over, you must upload all of the immortals. I must pair them up with all the male sims I have saved over all the dynasties!

Friend: Which Classic is she on?
Me: Eighth. Her name's Champagne and she's doing nectar making.
Friend: Ooo, her hair's pretty. Did she get that from her dad?
Me: No, her dad had puke hair.
Friend: I hate that. It looks like somebody just barfed on their head. But then again, if you drink too much champagne, that could happen.

I felt the urge to share that exchange despite its irrelevancy.

I have to agree with the others: She is such a cutie!
But where did her hair colour came from? Do you have it in your CAS and it was just randomly chosen?
And I never noticed the ruffles on the back of that toddler outfit. So incredible cute.  ;D

Almost there! I hope the Grannies (and Bubbly, for that matter) get the opportunity to live on past the dynasty, or experience a new life. Who knows? *hint, hint*

Sorry I haven't been answering a lot, I read every chapter, but old lurking habits die hard :)

I just want to say that this story is amazing.  I just started reading it yesterday (latecomer I know), and I love your writing skills and your character building.  I am only on the beginning of generation 3 though, but plan on reading the rest ASAP.

It's good to know that Mata Hari has gotten back into life! So to speak.

Champagne's hair is so pretty! After this dynasty is over, you must upload all of the immortals. I must pair them up with all the male sims I have saved over all the dynasties!

I'm so in love with her.  Be prepared for yet another toddler spam post coming right up.  I'm going to feel a palpable sense of loss when she ages up.  I do plan on uploading all of them!  (Under the obligation that you show me any and all offspring, obviously).

Friend: Which Classic is she on?
Me: Eighth. Her name's Champagne and she's doing nectar making.
Friend: Ooo, her hair's pretty. Did she get that from her dad?
Me: No, her dad had puke hair.
Friend: I hate that. It looks like somebody just barfed on their head. But then again, if you drink too much champagne, that could happen.

I felt the urge to share that exchange despite its irrelevancy.

I'm kinda into the fact that your friend knows what's going on over here.

Aww Champagne is so cute! Glad she didn't get that puke colored hair really and truly lol can't wait to see what happens next

Me too.  If she had, I'd already decided to dye it black.

Oh my gosh Champagne is so adorable! I wonder what she will look like when she is older? Your so close to finishing! Just a whole normal sim lifespan!

I can't wait to see myself what she'll look like.  She appears to have a nice combo of Mata and Percy.

I have to agree with the others: She is such a cutie!
But where did her hair colour came from? Do you have it in your CAS and it was just randomly chosen?
And I never noticed the ruffles on the back of that toddler outfit. So incredible cute.  ;D


Ah, you know, it might actually be saved in CAS.  That'd make sense.  Otherwise, maybe it's a hair color from one of the store worlds or something.  I noticed the ruffle when she was walking!  So adorable.

I have just read the dynasty so far, love it by the way. And Champagne is just, Adorable.

Haha, that must've taken you a while!  So glad to have you on board.

D'aaawwww! I think Bubbly would be a cute nickname! :) Or maybe Champ...
I can't wait to see her all grown up!

I did get pretty attached to Bubbly while I was writing Coralie's chapter :)

Almost there! I hope the Grannies (and Bubbly, for that matter) get the opportunity to live on past the dynasty, or experience a new life. Who knows? *hint, hint*

Sorry I haven't been answering a lot, I read every chapter, but old lurking habits die hard :)

I will give each of them closure for sure!

"Our baby is the cutest thing in the world," Percy says to me as often as possible.  "Impossibly cute.  I'm so glad you talked me into shocking the community."



For my part, I tend to respond silently, with a gesture of affection.  Percy loves trying to guess what I'm thinking.  I suppose I've never completely stopped keeping him on his toes.  He loves it really.



And he's right.  Champagne is crippling in her cuteness.



She's going to be a beauty.  She learned all of her toddler skills freaky fast.  She's walking, talking, pottying, singing, dancing, playing, and watching with such advanced fervor that it's hard to keep up with her.



I've missed a lot of these formative moments due to being chained to my desk at the police station.  Guess the job isn't called Desk Jockey for nothing.  Anyway, as often as I have to be out, Bubbly knows who Mommy is.



And probably at least suspects who Daddy is. 

"He likes da kitty," she says.  "and me."

"And you," he agrees, tapping her nose and making her giggle.  Percy is indeed a cat person.



Mom also wants to make sure Champagne knows her, despite constant work.  She tries to time leaving for the teatro with bed time so she can kiss her goodnight.



And if not, stays up a few extra hours in the mornings to spend some time playing with her.



She grumbles about that costume.  I can't help but agree.  What kind of pop icon wears the pregnancy nightgown and a pair of aviators?  Ah well.



The other grannies try to spend as much time with her as possible too, though it's easier without requirements on your shoulders.  A household joke has formed that if you want to play with Bubbly, you have to catch her first.



Or risk waking her up.



The day she did her potty all by herself the first time, Granny gave her a special gift.  A creepy little doll named OJ. 



I've got no beef with OJ.  Anything that keeps Bubbly occupied is fine by me, even if it would've given me nightmares as a kid.  Plus, when she does that horrifically off-tune singing to him, it's pretty much the cutest thing on earth.



What I do take a bit of issue with is Granny and Mona Lisa telling my child that the doll is somehow sentient.  Which is crazy talk.  And scary. 

"Mata Hari, you are descended directly from one of those dolls," Mona Lisa chides.

Sure, Grandma.  Time for your nap.  I mean, after all, surely we're violating a serious humanitarian code of conduct, in this case, every time Champagne (or Eden, for that matter) plays with the dollhouse.



And think of the life we've kept the purple dragon in the toy box from!  Surely he'd be the CEO of a major company by now if not for the constant toddler abuse over the last several generations!



Anyway, you get the picture.  I would never take OJ away from my daughter now that she's so attached, but come on.



We set up her museum room recently.  I'm very happy with it.  Granny is all misty eyed over it being the last one.



And of the three sets of life requirements left, one is finally done.  On a cool evening in the fall, my mother became a rock star.



We sat with her for ambrosia.  She was clearly nervous about it.  "What if they demote me?!" she worried.  As you can see, I was the beacon of support there, with pizza in my mouth.



She was just stalling anyway.  And when it happened, it was as though the sparkles had been made for her.  Just a bit of every color.



They also seemed to remove any doubts she had.  After the ambrosia settled, she gazed off through the window and sighed, contentedly.



I patted her on the shoulder as I passed her, heading for where Champagne was playing in the nursery.  It was bed time.  I held her tight, quietly for a minute, thinking about our futures.  About the day we'd eat that stuff too.



"We're going to make it," I whispered to her, changing her into her pajamas and settling her in.  She reached up for my hand and squeezed, giving me one of her heart-melting looks.

"Night night, Mama.  Don't worry, k?"

"Okay sweetness," I said, holding her little hand in mine.  "Night night."

Bravissimo, Allegra! Congrats on a job well done!

Mata's skepticism about OJ and her discussion on the dollhouse and the purple dragon seriously had me cracking up. She and Percy are still so adorable together. I'm glad that Percy still has a hand in raising Champagne despite the fact that he doesn't live there.

They need to force Mata Hari to realise her relation to an IF. It bothers me that she doesn't believe it, because she is denying the miracle that is Ophelia. Allegra doesn't even look like an Elder to me. So typical of her.
