The Riversong 4x4 Dynasty chapter 15
« Reply #50 on: March 09, 2014, 06:54:45 PM »
Still grinning at the book titles (particularly the Welsh quarry guide and So Long and Thanks for All the Hits)

Questioning by police Sims is equally useful, of course :).

And Jarrett is a seriously accomplished baby ;).

I'm glad you enjoyed the book titles. :-) Good point about police questioning, though wouldn't it unnerve a poor unsuspecting sim if they were questioned by their intended's parent/s before being able to marry? I wonder . . .

Chapter 15: The Space Museum



Nicholas: Is it me, or has the local gravity gone a bit wibbly-wobbly?



Cassidy: Erm . . . I don't know how to break this to you, darling, but you're a bit greyer than usual.
Nicholas: Well, I haven't been using as much hair dye as I did in the past. I'd have thought you've have noticed that by now.



Nicholas: Seriously, why is everyone looking so concerned? I'm perfectly alright!



Nicholas: Well, that was sudden. I thought turning into a genie would feel different to this . . . (voice slowly fades out)
Cassidy: It's an urn, you silly man . . .



And so, the first tombstone for the moving requirements has been obtained. RIP Nicholas Riversong. You lived longer than expected or hoped for, but did a good job as a founder.



And so, with a space freed up within the house, Steven wasted no time moving out the nest.



Betabee: Do you, Steven Irving Riversong, take this woman to be your wife?
Steven: I do.



Betabee: Do you, Francisca Sophia Vanderburg, take this man to be your husband?
Francisca: I do.



Betabee: Then I pronounce you dynasty spare and spouse. You may kiss the bride.



Betabee: Well, I'm glad to see you moved somewhere with more room for the little ones.
Francisca: It was difficult for me and the three teens to fit in the shack. So I contacted my family and they helped me upscale.
Betabee: Wonderful. I hope you and Steven have a wonderful time together. I'll send people around to check on you from time to time. Bye!



After saying goodbye to one of Susan's siblings, it was time to turn attention to the other spare branch of the family tree. It's weird seeing Dodo without her mother's hair colour.



The next generation of the Dodo line was begun without further ado . . .



. . . and it was time for Polly to leave the house.



Betabee: Monte Vista Riversong, do you take this woman to be your wife?
Monte: I do.



Betabee: Polly Alicia Willow, do you take this man to be your husband?
Polly: I do.



Betabee: Then I pronounce you extended family member and helper's daughter. Have a nice life!



And so the house was down to four- and a quickly aging four . . .



Susan: I'm sure my back didn't hurt quite this much the last time I was this old . . .




Susan's last wardrobe has a few touches of blue to honour her late husband. I think the grey hair suits her quite well, don't you?



Betabee: Hey, Cassidy. How are you holding up?
Cassidy: Quite well. I know I'm quite a bit past my time, but it would be nice to see one more thing before I join Nick.
Betabee: Okay. Name it.
Cassidy: It would be nice to see my grandbaby get married?
Betabee: Erm, Monte got married this chapter?
Cassidy: No, no. Barbara. The heir?
Betabee: Can it wait until next chapter? I don't think I can do it justice with four screenshots.
Cassidy: Fine. But do get on with it-the mortal coil waits for no woman.
Betabee: Sir, Yes, Sir! (does the virtual equivalent of a smart salute, then goes off to load up the sims and get Barbara married)

The fact that Monte's middle name is Vista makes me smile so much  :)

Really loving this dynasty!  Hidden Springs is my second favorite town (after Dragon Valley) and I hold a soft-spot for the Freespirit household because Nick was my founder's spouse for my immortal dynasty and Jess is one of my longest-lived Sims to date (without any intervention of course XD)  So I loved seeing Nick as a Founder.  Also, loved the names and Who theme ^^  Definitely bookmarked.

Well, it's supposed to be a friendly interaction - although I admit I usually wait until they're at least friends before using it.

RIP again, Nick :).

And, of course, I have to join in the love for Monte's middle name  ;D.

:-D  I enjoy giving my sims creative middle names (though I don't usually put them in the actual name boxes- it's more a spur of the moment thing when they get married.)

Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying the theme (which makes it a lot easier to choose chapter titles and names of children . . . but being a whovian I can safely say that convenience isn't my only motive.   :) )

It was the only possible middle name for Monte. :-D

Chapter 16- Let's do the time warp again . . .

Glitches are one of the nastiest things known in the watcherverse. Especially ones that destory your ability to control your sims like this one . . .



Fortunately, the challenge team allowed me to go back to a previous save. UNfortunately, this meant going back to the end of chapter 14/start of chapter 15. Cindy and Katherine have been wiped from existance, Polly and Steven are as yet unmarried, and Nicolas has to die. Again.
So, this chapter is mostly a recount of how things went a bit differently this time around (and also to make up for the lack of a chapter on sunday (sorry! I was travelling!))



Barbara still managed to finish her last skill challenge of writing 20 books in record time.



Nicholas: Why do I get a strange feeling that this has happened before . . . ?
Susan: Maybe because you died last update as well?
Nicholas: What, that? That was just a small case of dizziness . . . I think. I can't remember it much.



One grave down, three to go. Here's hoping we won't be seeing you again, Nick.
Nicholas: I echo that sentiment. Dying once is enough for me.
You died twice.
Nicholas: One time to many, in my opinion.



I decided to vary the order of marriages this time.



So, with the line of Dodo secured . . .



 . . . Mr and Mrs Willow were promptly married and moved out again.
Monte: Erm, wouldn't it be Mr and Mrs Riversong?
Betabee: It doesn't work like that. She did the proposing and suchlike, so she gets to pass on her name.



The next morning, it was Steven's turn.



Quiana has grown up into a . . . unique young woman. I'm not entirely sure where her hair's from, but it reminds me a bit of Billy Caspian's hair, which I've saved as a preset. Hmm . . .



Steven's dopey wedding face is adorable, don't you think?



A new set of twins arrived for Steven and Francisca shortly after their wedding- Rosemarie and Liana.



With some space cleared in the house, it was time to increase the house size again.



Charles: What was that for?
Barbara: It's so you can move in. Are you alright with leaving Lycanthropy behind?



Charles: Sure. So, when can we get married?
Barbara: Hold your horses, Charlie- a wedding would seriously mess with my career. You don't mind waiting for me, do you?
Charles: Not at all.



Betabee: Hello, Charles. Have a Young Again potion.
Charles: Why thankyou. What next?
Betabee: A makeover. Though would you mind stopping by a body sculptor first? You're nothing but skin and bones!



Charles: Do I get any advice on dress codes, darling?
Barbara: Hmm . . . go with whatever, dear. The wardrobe is your oyster.
Betabee: And you're distracting her from her work, so get on with it!




Betabee: Thankyou, Charles, for having a nice easy favourite colour to work with.



Susan's elder birthday was marked with a cake this time around.
Susan: I wish for . . . no more glitches for the next few generations!



Susan: I trust you can restore my wardrobe to rights?
Betabee: Near enough, yeah.



Dear readers, a sight to behold- a vampire visiting and getting his own plasma juice from the fridge! Such a smart and intelligent chap.



Why is he over? Well, he and Jessica are trying for another child. (Though I am asking myself- why on earth am I trying to fill up the house again when I just emptied it a bit? Hmm . . .)

Wow am I happy that I found this dynasty! It suits me well, for I am indeed a Whovian. Also, its very unique because I've never seen anyone use Cassidy or Nicholas. And I really like your writing style.  :) It's intelligent but still humorous. Keep up the good work!  :D (By the way, sorry about that glitch! I know the feeling..)

Thank goodness my sister is a whovian so she can explain all of these references to me!  Nice job on your dynasty so far.  I love your interactions with your sims.  Too funny  :)  I've had an experience with that same glitch on my decadynasty.  Not fun at all.  Good luck and fingers crossed for no more glitches or errors.

I'm glad you're enjoying reading this! :-)  I haven't been playing the riversongs lately since I'm trying to finish up my scientia dynasty, but will try and get back to it ASAP!
