Mmm hmmm.  I don't EVER want to read you saying you aren't creative ever, ever again!  That is a fabulous museum idea.  Mine is currently a boring hole in the ground.  lol

I like the recolour Idea, and taking the furniture to their allotted museum room!  ;)

Aww, thank you.  I feel like I really struggle with ideas.  And I have no artistic talent at all.  Can't paint or play music.  I'm practically tone deaf.  Can't draw or sing.  I don't participate in the Caption Contests because I can think of absolutely nothing to submit.  Oddly, the only thing I claim any sort of connection to is color.  Before Sims 3, I used to crochet a lot of afghans.  I could never develop a pattern of my own, but I could sure pick out some gorgeous yarn colors for them!  Lol. 

Update:  Periwinkle and Chartreuse have aged up to teenagers.  I gave Periwinkle the Savvy Sculptor trait and Chartreuse rolled the Inappropriate trait.  I had more fun than usual dressing them because I bought some new teen hair and clothes at the Sims 3 Store.  Periwinkle is prim and a little prissy, while Chartreuse is more of a wild child...  which is in line with their traits.  I'll get some good pictures of them soon.  It's time for Periwinkle to start looking for a spouse.  She only met a couple of boys in elementary school and didn't make friends with either of them.  She met Curtis French and I'd like to maybe see about him, but his picture in the relationship panel is blank.  Nectarine is friends with him and tried to invite him over and meet him out, but he never showed up.  Molly French was a best friend of Carina's and I thought it would be nice to have her blood in the family.  Maybe high school will make him actually appear. 

I'm a little concerned about Christopher.  He's 107 days old and still going.  I've played him to his death in one other game of mine, but I don't recall if he lived an abnormal amount of time.  If any of you are playing Christopher Steel in your Dynasty, please let me know how long he lives.  It's just getting to be a bit bizarre.

It wasn't Christopher, but Jon Lesson in RV lived 50 days past his time, might have been a glitch.  Poor guy had to go ahead and age him up.  I am curious how long Christopher lives also, how strange.  He has such a good life, he doesn't want to go. :D

I haven't had any of my people living so long, but I noticed that Vita Alto is still living in my dynasty. Not sure about Nick, but in Holly's family tree, they are both still in colour (don't they go grey if they are dead?) and Vita is listed as one of Holly's friends. Apparently, she is no longer with Nick as her partner is said to be someone called VJ. As to her age, at the beginning of a new game she is 16 days from becoming an elder, so if I'm on week 8 day 4 that means she has been an elder for 37 days! Isn't the average 14?

Average days to be an Elder is 20.  They are 70 when they age up, and they live to around 90 days.

Since the last patch, in my Legacy I had a sim who lived to be 110!  I thought she would never kick the bucket!

Ok, first of all...  Christopher is still alive.  Why?  I don't know.  He's 116 days old.

Nectarine will turn Elder in 5 days and she's very close to being ready for Ambrosia.  She only has to go 2 more levels in her Painter career.  Everything else is finished.

Indigo has reached level 10 in the Science career and is now a Mad Scientist.  She's performed a couple of experiments around the house.  Not much, though.  Her life is fairly routine:  work, play guitar, hang out with friends and family.





Kenny has finally reached the point where his ice sculptures don't melt.  He's got Carina's Elder and Nectarine's Adult sculptures done so far.  Next up will be Periwinkle's Teen sculpture.

I mentioned earlier how different Periwinkle and Chartreuse are from each other.  Here we have Periwinkle, the prim twin:





And here is Chartreuse, the wild child:





Periwinkle has a boyfriend now named Oliver Deppiesse.  Carina was best friends with three of the Deppiesse family.  If I can't get the French blood in the family, the Deppiesse blood will work.  Oliver is a Coward, Artistic, and a Born Salesman.  I'm certainly not lacking for artists in this family.  





Everyone but Christopher was having some conversation after dinner:



The family owns a lot of vehicles.  That hot rod in the middle belongs to Chartreuse.  It's fast!



Finally, Nectarine and Kenny have some quiet time at the end of a big family outing at Crystal Springs:

Wow, I love reading this, and I'm astonished by interior design! And Sims teach us that for that carrier you also need creativity :D
Having two generation of twins is great for the complexity of the story and I guess it is fun to play.. and a big family grave yard too.
Why my elders in Grim Sorrow Challenge didn't live that long.. hmm not fair.
Great reading it and looking forward for the rest of the story!

Christopher (Steel) Dreamweaver passed away at age 117 days.  He was at home and surrounded by all of his girls.  This is the face of a dying Sim who lived long and well.









His family is devastated.  And poor Carina...  she broken hearted and struck down by grief.  Is immortality worth the price of this pain?



Farewell, Christopher.  May your rest be peaceful.

I know!  I was really starting to think something was bugged.  He didn't have anything special, either.  Not a vegetarian, only one or two points of athletic skill.  It was crazy!

Great shots, fun story, as always! My Christopher Steel lived to be over 100, so he's just a long-lived sim. Yours is impressive!

I hate it when the good ones die.  I cry for hours and am bummed out for quite some time.  I love the way this story is going, Pam.

Me too, which is why I always have either Ambrosia, Life Fruit or a Death Flower! That way, my sims don't die, until I'm ready for them too!

All the girls (Carina, Nectarine, Indigo, Periwinkle, and Chartreuse) headed off to Shang Simla to deal with their grief over Christopher's death.  This 17 day trip is much like the others...  gathering metals and getting skills up for Periwinkle.  She brought the Charisma skill books so she can learn how to make friends easily.  She has only been able to get to level 4 because my Shang Simla is buggy and they can't interact with other Sims unless they do it on their own.  My commands just bounce off.  She's also getting her Sculpting skill up.  She has a wish to make a metal sculpture, but there's no junkyard in Shang Simla.  She was reduced to rummaging through garbage to find some. 

Chartreuse has taken up guitar, mostly because I don't know what to do with her.  Nectarine is painting her little heart out.  I'm saving all of her paintings to sell after she gets home because I don't know if it will count toward her Painting profession if I sell them while she's on vacation.  Indigo is doing some adventures so I can add to my collection pieces.

Upon arrival in Shang Simla, I found a partially completed portrait of Christopher.  Kenny is the artist and he's not on this trip, so the easel with the partial portrait is lovingly displayed in the living room.

That's kind of neat, finding the partial portrait. 117 days is amazing. Stiles McGraw in my game is pushing 106ish, and the family has been hovering around, figuring he'll go any day now. I guess they probably shouldn't hold their breath if it's possible he has another week plus left in him. Great story, Pam!

Is that metals quest repeatable? I've been keeping it up forever, thinking I only have one chance at it.

Yes, it comes up quite often.  But when I have it, I keep it as long as I can.  Sooner or later, the person involved with it dies and it goes away, but then it comes back as a new adventure fairly quickly.

I love the picture of Christopher dying and at the same time his phone is ringing.  Maybe Grimmie had been trying to call, couldn't get through and finally decided to come in person.  117 days is really amazing!

It was weird.  The phone call came through as Grim was taking him.  It was an opportunity call and the window showed Christopher as a ghost.  I accepted the oppurtunity just to see what would happen.  Nothing did, though.
