Business career...there are only two who would be Elder at this point in the game--Nick and Gunther. Zelda's words "I know you love kids" seems to play into Nick's Family-Oriented trait, plus that is Nick's hairstyle...

It would appear to me that Holly is about to have a half-sibling.

Intriguing, this. :)

Edited to add: Oooh, and what Dustin said about it being dangerous for him to leave his wife...that describes Vita's Evil trait nicely.

Doctor Watson, a game is afoot! :P

Yes, Diana is Artemis's Roman counterpart. I'm still debating over whether Artemis or Apollo will be my immortal, but the that's for the game to decide! I wish I could make both of them immortal, they are such integral characters!

I do love them both! But, I'm more prefer Artemis. I wished that Kev has a twin but it's seem the household already full for a story purpose :(

For the 2nd generation, I let the game decide too ;D
Kev in other hand want a heir, Holly want a heiress. But, the game more favor to Holly. And then Diana was born.

That's really fascinating to have both as Immortal. But, as an Immortal, you either make Apollo or Artemis first as Immortal and let the rest as the next generation. That's only the way. But, it's really weird as  they are twins after all ^^

How could I have missed this part? ;) Dustin makes me feel quite cheesy!

Haha, he is really something after all. When I see him, I almost want to kidnap him and make mine alone :P
Too bad that he's already married and have children. I don't want to take happiness from his family anyway ;)

VJ Breaks the Third Wall
--------------------------------


Doctor Watson, a game is afoot! :P

Mademoiselle Pardner Raia, transfer over to SV will you? Its rare I see brains matching my own!
 
I thought it was Nick, too!

Another Sherlocky lady? :o

From the outfit I would say he works in the business career. Is it Nick Alto?

Another Holmey lady ??? ! Ohh no, it's a sad day! Too much ladies with my brains, and my heart is all taken and sealed  :'(

Gosh! So Zelda Mae and... Uh, Geoffrey? That was unexpected.

Llama save us all! I can stand Vita Evily, but not Nanny Snobby!

Breaking the third wall is a technique used in movies, books etc. when a character addresses the audience directly. VJ here loves airing his opinion!

Thank you for all your lovely speculations! I'll be sure to put some more mysteries on the way!

That's really fascinating to have both as Immortal. But, as an Immortal, you either make Apollo or Artemis first as Immortal and let the rest as the next generation. That's only the way. But, it's really weird as  they are twins after all ^^

That's the biggest problem I'm having. Though I'm altering some relationships is mandatory (for obvious reasons lol!), I just don't feel like not making those two an ancestor-descendant pair. After all, a lot of the magic lies in the fact that they are twins!

Haha, he is really something after all. When I see him, I almost want to kidnap him and make mine alone :P
Too bad that he's already married and have children. I don't want to take happiness from his family anyway ;)

Dustin is sadly unappreciated. And I too, felt sorry to break him up with Illiana though it would have made it much more easier to make him have an affair with Zelda because they are best friends and all!

Spring | SimYear 2

Chapter Six : Of Blossoms, Love and Humble Weddings

Pardner,

Just because I did you a favour doesn't mean that you have to go and make me and my household celebrities!

Oh yes you did.

You gossiped with those pesky paparazzi and they've been zombieing around the house for days. You guys have brains huh? Didn't take too long to figure it out huh? And you still can't shut up your mouths huh?

BAH!

And if you don't know it already, I'm married. I meant to invite you but I don't like mutts!

Ouch! Why did I start talking about marriage! It already put me in a good mood. After all, you were the first person I told about my love.

The next one was Rhea herself.

I had always held back. We had become good friends and had long chats over dinner together. But now time was running off. Rhea was an adult. Just look how corny fatty Andrews looks at her. I was very very desperate.



I could wait no longer ...

"Rhea, you look all hot and smeksy."

The blue dress, of course, had been my gift. I loved her hairdo!

"Don't be naughty, VJ." she chided playfully. "And you really should start wearing a Tee around home!"

Who would have expected such a motherly response!

"I will if you come out with me to the Spring festival."

She looked startled and for a moment I felt a pang of panic. Oh my god! How could I! This was so inappopriate.

She opened her mouth but I blundered. What was there to lose?

"I've had the biggest crush on you, Rhea since I was a teen. I know you think I'm still a kid but can you just come with me to the spring festival just for old times sake?"

Was it the pollen or the blossoms? I can't still imagine why she agreed!

It was a beautiful day. Once I had my chance, there was nothing holding me back!



"I really mean it when I say you are the most beautiful woman in the world, Rhea." I wishpered as we slow danced together.



"I have a secret." she murmured, speaking for the first time.

"I always knew you had a crush on me."

"Really?" I was taken aback. I, VJ the Secretive, always prided myself on being a closed book.

"I just knew." she whispered. " And I liked how sweet and fresh it was."

"Rhea, will you marry me?"

I never said I wasn't inappropriate!

Ah the blush of long realized love! Considering the current situation, we decided to marry soon. Rhea was determined to wait, but my lack of t-shirts seemed to distract her too often.



I was never a one for weddings but Rhea said she wanted to be surrounded by her loved ones on the special day.

Anything for my bride!



My last night alone. Ah, it feels good to be a winner!



Do you know where the poor hold their weddings?

In small, barely lit halls full of love and joy!



I just wish Erin had a better party dress than a nightgown. Have to have a serious talk with ole' Dad sometime about that! Lisa of the Bunch makes a dramatic pose, eh!



I never thought love could be so perfect!

I love VJ's makeover. Not that he needed much help. He's a very handsome sim. ;)

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes...hmmm...a blue-haired nooboo?

Aw, I just started reading this, and I am a fan! I'll be looking for updates on this one, for sure. For some reason, I've always kinda loved VJ. It's the blue mohawk, I think: so awesome! Anyway, I'm digging him as the love interest; they are so cute together! And VJ is very handsome. That's some smexy man-sim right there. Yup.

As for what Greek gods I enjoy: Artemis has always been a favorite of mine: something about her being the independent, fierce hunter wandering alone in the woods always appealed to me. After that, probably Persephone: such an interesting explanation for seasons.

-----------------------------

Eh, no! Nooboos are boring, Toddlers are much better :P

Thanks for the congratulations, pardner! But NO WAY, no nooboos! Nooboos, toddlers, they are all darn boring! I HATE 'em all!

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes...hmmm...a blue-haired nooboo?

NO nooboos, blue haired or otherwise. NO! No! NO!

Seriously, I had enough trouble with my o;e' Dad when growing up and I really don't want a retelecast. Period. I'm sure Rhea will understand!

Back to Ve1ocity
--------------------


Rhea's mate in ancient Greek mythology was Cronos, who killed his father, Oranous. As it was predicated that his offspring will kill him, he swallowed all his offsprings as they were born.

This is the myth I'm trying to mimick here. Of course there's no killings or swallowings or whatever. VJ had a difficult time with his father and he doesn't want any kids. Not totally uncommon, eh!

And Rhea, lets see about her...

Yay VJ and Reah, Look at the last picture an old woman is stuck in the door, I wonder however shall she get out. :)

Hehe Molly French, I'll update a line on it:D!

Oooh! That was a nice editing for Rhea and VJ! I love that heart shaped one!
VJ... is totally different when I looking in that style.
And I never knew that you are match each other, VJ! Congratulations!

Oh, it's Rhea's hair a CC?

Why, thank you! I'm still experimenting with collage making! I personally really love the ones in your stories, but I'm kinda too lazy to use Photoshop!

Rhea's hair is from the EA store. I'll find the set and let you know. I wanted a long veil but couldn't find one :s.

I love VJ's makeover. Not that he needed much help. He's a very handsome sim. ;)

Ahem to that! Ain't he smeksy!

Aw, I just started reading this, and I am a fan! I'll be looking for updates on this one, for sure. For some reason, I've always kinda loved VJ. It's the blue mohawk, I think: so awesome!

Thank you Rhoxi! I love your dynasties and yes, its a honour ;)!

Join the VJ-club! I never thought he'd be so handy!

I also like Artemis, the only problem is whether it will be Apollo or Artemis as it depends on the birth order. Anyway, she'll have a great story, immortal or not.

I myself love the Persephone myth, though Persephone herself is not so well defined. So planning to have her as a mortal, or may make her an immortal depending on the household state!

Here you go, after going some reading.

(lazy comment detected)

--- First & Second Dynasty related ---

It's seem there was some change in Rhea hair color for several attempt. Rhea style too quite different.

First attempt
The way that you did the storytelling are quite unique. Just looking at the word that you used, it's like reading old-style related thing. Don't get me wrong! I totally love it and I do wonder where you can find such a word. It's charmed me ;D
It was so sad that only last until five chapters.

Second attempt
The way of storytelling is changed. But, I do love that you still faithful to Alvi's. They are too need a little love. Back to the topic. I am quite surprised that you decide to marry Iqbal and make VJ into sculptor. Some chapters are really short, but provide a lot of information. In chapter 6, I found one missing image, but... Oh, well. Too bad that was end at chapter 9. But, I do glad that you try this attempt again.

--- Comments related thing ---

Thanks for the congratulations, pardner! But NO WAY, no nooboos! Nooboos, toddlers, they are all darn boring! I HATE 'em all!

Hahaha, but toddlers are much useful than nooboo y'know :P
They can learn so many skills and look at their cuteness. Oh, VJ you need to learn more about toddler :P

*cast love charm on VJ, so he will love toddler more.*

That was turned out to be good. I love it. I am too still learning to use Photoshop well. It's turned to be interesting, but I still need to do some experiment when I have that time. Well at least a little experiment can gain a little experience until reach the next skill of photo-shopping. I am still newbie in many ways y'know \(~_~)/

Oooh, is that so...? Humm.. Her hair kinda looks different. I will be waiting then.

--- Greek God related ---

I look into Artemis story, but there was so many version. Did she kill Orion? Or Scorpion that was send by Gaia who did it?
In her version that she killed him, that was so sad. And I will be questioning about her relationship with Apollo :'(
Well, which version that you prefer and why?

Thank you for such a detailed review! El, you rock! The word "pantheon" right? I had a book called 'The Greek Pantheon' once, not a very famous one but gave a really juicy retelling of the famous stories.

The main reason I stopped try 1 was that there was no way Rhea could complete her gardening requirements on time. The second time, I was bored to continue because I was on hiatus for a long time plus I felt my writing was lacking.

I am a lazy person, thus the love for short chapters hehehe! But overall I find them easier to write!

And in this attemp, I'm succeeding :D!!!

Oops are you referring to Rhea's wedding hair or her curls? The curls are CC, over from peggysims as I remember.

I'll have to think when Artemis comes around. Gaia should be VJ's mother, so Rhea should double over for her appearances. But apart from it being impossible, there'll be no killings in the story. Perhaps social disgracing etc.

Also, what do you think? Shall I officially change VJ's name to Cronos as that's his equivalent?

Spring | SimYear 2

Chapter Seven : The Disobedient Wife

Hi, Mr.CCP,

I'm Rhea Alvi.

Forgive me if I got your name wrong, but my husband talks a lot about you and I thought you were the best person to talk about this matter.

He always tells what a relief it was to out-pour to you during those hard days. I feel you know him as well, or even better than me. That is why I'm writing to you.



I married my husband for love.

True, he was rich, but only I knew it! We lived in a shabby shack, and truly, we still do! The walls are still the same old paneling though the furniture is another story!

I have a pretty good earning at the restaurant and the only reason that kept me from moving out was that I didn't want to leave my de-facto family.

I've always known that VJ had a crush on me. At first it unnerved me, specially his habit of walking around in his knickers! Then, I slowly came to understand him. I admired his stellar determination and how he would survive for days without even sleeping because he had to complete a bulk order.

He was and still occasionally is a jerk, but he hid it around me and as I was around him most of the time he has become a much nicer person, albeit unintentionally!

But my real crush on him came when he grew out to an adult. I may sound like a wheezy teen girl, but oh my god, he looked so amazing! Such piercing blue eyes! And he was devoted! Why, I felt like a queen!

Quite a few men have proposed-and at times propositioned-to me. I knew time was going, but I was young! And VJ's devotion quite struck me. I've seen men the men who proposed to me equally dying after another girl in the next season, but never VJ! What woman could resist that?

And so we married. In a lovely wedding surrounded by friends and family.



The wedding night was sweet. VJ tried to be brave but I could see he was nervous. We just talked till dawn and finally, when the moment came it was amazing!

Of course, the next step was a nooboo.

Apparently, I had made one big mistake about my husband.

He didn't want nooboos. He was stern on that.



How I talked, argued and reasoned with him.

Always the answer was no. It was not a consideration, but a blank flat no.

He had hated the tough time with his father and didn't want the same with a son.

Then a daughter?

Again a flat blank no.

"You really don't want to add to those two horrors, do you?" he groaned, snuggling up against me. "Life is beautiful Rhea, just you and me."

To stop my narrative for a moment, I have to update you. Undoubtedly you know of the public disgrace Zelda Mae faced and which ruined her career.

VJ doesn't like her, but Zelda is a dear girl. I have no idea why she get involved with that Mafia Boss, Nick Alto. Yes, she had not one, but two, daughters out of wedlock.

Zelda's pregnancy was a happy one. She was in love with Alto-though I certainly don't understand why.



Of course, she did worry when she thought nobody was looking. She was vetu worried indeed.



Her waters broke one rainy evening. There was no one at home, and she barely managed to make it to hospital.



Hera and Hestia Mae were born within two minutes to each other. Two beautiful, innocent girls, stigmatized for life at their birth as lovechildren of a failed prima donna and a mafia grandiso.

Zelda knew their fate. How like a queen she looks, rocking away with Hera in her arms.



VJ might think otherwise, but the beautiful little girls just strengthened my longing for a child.

And the inevitable happened.

Of course, mistakes can happen ...

 

I pour over books on a happy motherhood...



I have a craving for apples...



And I think I'll wait a bit more till telling VJ. I doubt he'd be so harsh, but I'm against abortion. Bulky dresses are surprisingly effective...



Only Zelda knows, and is a true friend indeed.



I spend time with the twins to prepare for motherhood...



Thank you for listening to me, Mr.CCP.

I think you already know my request. Could you please be with me when I tell my husband? Please, I'm rather nervous...

I'll get back to you soon.

I don't feel quite ok.

Oh no! Why, it can't be! Its too soon!



Oh my dear watcher!

Comment at bottom by officer :
This rascal called me a critically criminal potential?? I'll get him!

N.B. I hope Rhea is ok, handling VJ will be another story...

Letters stashed away by bored officers at The Community Center for Teenagers with Critical Criminal Tendencies


Summer | SimYear 2

Chapter Eight : Reckonings

Life as I remember started with betrayal, then love, then hardwork, then riches and finally marriage. And again, betrayal.



My mother left me as a helpless kid, to fend to myself in a world I had no love for.

Finally I fell in love with the woman of my dreams and I did everything in her name.

I thought I was working hard and earning, to get out of poverty, but somewhere in the back of my mind I know that it wasn't the only reason.

I wanted to prove myself to Rhea.

And she betrayed me.

I had made it clear that I didn't want any children, I abhorred them. And what did she do? She got herself pregnant without telling me. Oh, she didn't cheat. The thing has my eyes after all.

I can't imagine how she managed to hide it from me for so long. Well, I was away taking bulk orders for sculpting and we didn't have much time together. She says she meant to tell me. I don't believe her. The thing was botn premature, but still! She could have told me before!



All in one moment, life turned from beautiful to black. All those miserable memories of my godforsaken childhood come back to me when I see it. Zeus Olympia.

I just can't stand the sight of it. I didn't attend his birthday party and Miraj had to hold him.



I just don't want that darn kid in my life!

Life goes on as usual.

I sculpt with passion.

That darn Mae woman turned elder and dyed her hair green. I can see that she's still dreaming of marriage.




Thankfully, she keeps her bawling toddlers out of my reach in the library. Better they get some books into their head because I ain't going to spend one simleon on their upbringing! I ain't afraid of their big, bad papa anymore!



At other times, she goes and plodds away in the garden. Perhaps she's hatching a plan to bury old Alto and digging his grave. Wish she'd asked me for some help! I'd do with some fiendish delight!



Dad is still living and kicking. He should have died long ago, that old prat.

He's gone a bit loony and taken to fish in the graveyard. Must be thinking that hiding behind Grim's statue means Grim won't see him. Surprisingly, it seems to be working...



Even weirder, buying an expensive aquarium totally without my permission and stocking it with some huge black fish!

Not to mention very public PDAs with Erin! Yuck!





That gangling young man with the arty hair is their son, Chester. Erin seems to have given him some military super proteins as he grew up more quickly than other sims. Perhaps its the hair, but we get on pretty well.



Err.... I never said I fell out of love with Rhea, did I? I do love her?

I had no love for the son she gave me.

But still I do love her, but I've lost my respect. That was why I brought Crystal Springs instead of making our house, in her own words, more 'comfortable'.

And I mean to buy over Hogan's Diner, very soon...

Woah woah woah... You updated two chapter already o_O
Well, gotta catch this up ;D

Ah, I suspect that too! About the CC thing ;D

Chapter Seven
Who is Mr. CCPP? I am interested whom Rhea talking about. Oooh, I see two Goddess name here!

Chapter Eight
The only thing that I have in mind. Is that Rhea's son with VJ? VJ seems so... um mad?
It's nice that you provide a nice background for VJ, so I can understand him more. 
And I do love how VJ voice in this chapter. That's really something and you make him real in my eyes!

Aw, VJ will come around eventually. Even he would have to admit...it's not like Rhea got pregnant by herself. :P

Hehehe! I really love how you expressed it!

I'm really growing into the Rhea+VJ dynamics. I have much more stories on those two flowing but concentrating too much on their story would take my attention away from the dynasty. Perhaps when I'm all done with the dynasty, I'll come back and edit the dynasty into one complete meaty tale!

:o just  :o

Welcome to the dynasty, Karlissa. I'm trying to keep up to greek mythology much as possible, and this is the tamest I could do :D! Hope you enjoy it :)

Chapter Seven
Who is Mr. CCPP? I am interested whom Rhea talking about. Oooh, I see two Goddess name here!

Chapter Eight
The only thing that I have in mind. Is that Rhea's son with VJ? VJ seems so... um mad?

CCP=Critically Criminal Potentials=just Vj's nick to the good police officers!

Yes, yes its his son, no adultery here;). Rhea was one of the best behaved and most respected Greek goddesses. VJ just doesn't like kids, specially due to his bad relationship with his father!

Thank you for your compliments El. You really keep me going :) !

Oooh, thank you for explaining that to me. That was unrecognizable terms for me. Glad to learn something new ;D

Phew, glad to hear that. I thought that Rhea is cheating with someone else, because the betrayed word lead me into something else.

Not actually, its just a term I built up! Will edit the chapters a bit more to make it more recognizable :D!

Hmm... true its weird if VJ doesn't get some doubts on parentage, seeing how secretive Rhea was. Will make some edits to show he's sure its his son, and just that he doesn't want him!

Chapter Nine : Barren Wombs
« Reply #44 on: May 05, 2013, 08:26:49 AM »
From the personal memoirs of Iqbal Alvi

Summer/Fall | Sim Year 2

Chapter Nine : Barren Wombs



It is summer again. i continue to outlive my years to the great surprise to everyone and the even greater displeasure to my dear eldest son.

I simply cannot understand why he hates me so much in such a childish manner. I did all I could do to make their lives happy. He should understand, now that he's a father himself.

No of course not, how could I ever forget! VJ threw a fit when Rhea had little Zeus.



He's insane, that son of mine. To hate such an adorable bundle of joy.



Don't worry little Zeus, you have grandpa to take care of you!

Erin and me, our love is strong as ever. Both of us have an eternally faithful reputation.



Mmm...life is good.

But, at times there are hints of trouble in paradise.



"Miraj Alvi! Don't tell me you are flirting with a married woman! And Morgana Wolff out of all people!" I confronted my gentler son in the the workshop.

"Do calm down Dad. Morgana has a problem!"

"A problem? What problem is there to discuss at midnight on the doorstep? Not to mention pledging your everlasting protection!"

"Please don't yell Dad. Morgana is worried. You see, she is barren."Miraj shouted over the whirl of VJ's ice cutter. Zeus is one awesome chump! Just see how he looks on interestedly as VJ tries his best to scare him! Hahaha!



"Barren? Since when did Thornton Wolff want kids?" VJ scoffed, clearly annoyed by Zeus's demeanor.

"Well he wants them now. And Morgana is still young. They've tried everything, but she's barren!"

"And what's that to do with the rendezvous at the front door at midnight?"

Miraj sighed deeply.

"Dad do you know that Chester was the first baby born in Sunset Valley after Molly Ursine when I was a child?"

"Huh! There are plenty of them around!"

"No Dad, those are townies who have moved here. I asked around and nearly all of them had spent fortunes on fertility treatments. And they've not have been able to have babies after they came here. And after Chester, only our household have babies."

"Are you suggesting that our household is the only one saved from some weird scientific experiment?"

Ah! I've always loved conspiracies, though Erin has squashed most of them out of me.

"Well, it seems the townies believe that only people from our household can have kids." Miraj said, fidgeting. "I don't like it." he muttered.

"Tosh!" VJ said. Then his eyes lightened. "So Morgana wants you as a stud, huh?"

Miraj blushed deeply.

"I just wish," he muttered. "Its just, its just that Morgana isn't too comfortable around me. She has been very faithful to her husband, you know."

"Puh!" VJ shrugged it off. "Maybe Morgy is just barren and the rest of the town aren't trying. Seems like the world is becoming the ideal place! I can't fathom this fuss about nooboos! Blah!" He glared at Zeus.

We forgot about it all, specially after the shock of seeing VJ teaching little Zeus to talk!



Seemed like my firebrand has had a change of heart, or so I thought till I heard teaching Zeus about 'moving houses'! Hopeless VJ, but I still have hope!

Imagine my shock when I was propositioned not once, but twice the following day!



"Girl, I'm old enough to be your grandfather. Don't you come batting those eyelashes around me!"

"Oh please, Mr.Alvi! I so want a nooboo!"

"Do you think I'm a baby factory, huh?"

"Alvi, that prat of your son!"



I nerved myself against the prospect of Thornton's cane.

"He can't calm Morgana enough to be a surrogate father? Could you be surrogate instead?"

Oh my geezers!

"I don't know what's wrong with this world." I groaned to Rhea as I penned a love letter to Erin.



"Hooray Iqbal! That's so romantic!" She said peering at the letter.

"Not the letter, Rhea." I blushed slightly. "I mean all this noobooness."

"Its not just any old wives tale." Rhea frowned. "Even Pauline Wan asked me for nooboo secrets when I was at the Frios' costume party. She and Hank have been trying for years, it seems."



"Pauline even told me that I was a witch to have children!" she added indignantly.

It seems I wasn't the only person who was intrigued.



One day I caught VJ bribing Chester, out of all people. I had more sense than to confront VJ and blow up a full-fledged hurricane, but that didn't stop me telling Erin to get everything out of Chester.



Seems like VJ has been bribing Chester to hack through Erin's top secret files.

I would have put it to pure spite on VJ's part if Chester hadn't told me the reason.

VJ was also trying to find out why the town was barren.

I am an old man, and a happy one.

Tragic as it is, the matters of the town's apparent happiness wouldn't bother me so much.

If not for one reason.

Long ago, before my wife left me, she had always pestered me to catch deathfish. She was an avid gardener and said it was to make one special recipe in combination of one of her rarest plants.

Now, I had not even known what deathfish were those days. It was only after I became a master fisherman that I learnt from another master about the rare and extremely precious black fish. Knowing that Rhea and Zelda were a amazing cooking-gardening duo, I had stored the fish up.



But all that was coincidental. What worried me was what my wife had told me long ago.

"I really want the fish, Iqbal." she had urged once. "The world will go barren soon and only this recipe can save it."

I had simply laughed it off and she had never mentioned it again.

Now I am unnerved.

How could she have known? 

But I am an old man, and there's much more happiness to think about than some random prediction in the distant past.

The twins grew up. This is little Hera before she had a haircut.




Eh, you are quite the evil one ain't you Hera?

Little Zeus grew up. He has bypassed his father's blue hair and inherited his mother's brown locks. To be honest, I was quite disappointed!

He and Hera are quite the cohorts of Evil!




Zeus is fonder of gentle Hestia, specially in all matters food!



VJ, by mistake he says, worked out quite the unflattering sculpture of Zeus!



Try again VJ!

Hera is turning out to be a pretty good painter!



Life does have its tinges of sadness. Nick Alto passed off.



I have no words to say how happy I am that we have one big happy family for love and support throughout life's storms.

Ah, I found that Iqbal facial hair is quite interesting. Once I have a legacy founder with that look, but he was bald and plump.
Seeing that facial hair alone just remind me of Wolverine but without claws ;D

Too bad that Elder has a limited clothes to put on. And why Zeus is half-naked :P ?
Do you show Iqbal and Erin affection to everyone? I never had such moodlet for a long time.
Who is Chester o_O, at least tell me his last name. It is Keaton's?

That was a nice way to explain the broken story progression. It was sad, I will never ever experience what Pam experienced before int this condition. I just loved to see everyone connected in Family Tree things ;D

Zeus and Hera make a lovely couple of kid being Evils.

Haha, the sculpture is nice! I never triggered that in my Dynasty. It's a random thing I guess?

You can definitely see a lot of Nick in Hera. She's got the nose for sure.

Miraj definitely needs to father a child somewhere. :) He's a cute kid.

You know, I like the way you've framed your male sims producing lots of children. It's not that they're creeps, or trying to produce children for the later immortals to marry, they're simply saving the town from the barren plague! Their doing a service! Hehe.

I actually love Iqbal as a granddad! Zeus seems to have inherited his Daddy's love for knickers and I usually don't give toddlers a makeover!

Chester is Iqbal's and Erin's son.

In my first try, I would see families having nooboos. Now? Not even couples getting together! That's so sad!

Zeus isn't actually evil, but Hera is ;) !

Totally random sculpture. I've seen it in some other game, again by an Evil sim.

You can definitely see a lot of Nick in Hera. She's got the nose for sure.

Miraj definitely needs to father a child somewhere. :) He's a cute kid.

I was longing to see Nick's hair <sigh>

Ahh Raia, I think you'll regret your words :p :p!
