That's really weird with those two girls.  They could be twins! 

I'm glad you're getting a chance to continue. This is really a fascinating story for me.

You have the most interesting things happen with your Sims.  Love hearing about it all. The ghosts driving are a hoot.  I've never experienced that.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Paper boys (and girls) always get their ages all messed up.  They age up much faster than townies and our own Sims.  I don't know if it's a bug that Electronic Arts will eventually fix or if it's just the way things are.  One of the boys jumped straight from Child to Young Adult and he'll probably be an Adult by the time Banana is a Young Adult.  I don't particularly want her husband to be so much older.  Out of the 5 boys in her high school, 4 of them are paper boys!  Only Dean belongs to a normal family living in town, so I feel pretty safe that he will stay close to her age.

I have married a paper boy before, I met him as a child, the he aged to teen. I think if you get to know him as a child then they'll age normaly. Thanks for answering fast :D

-splutters at the pictures of the similar cousins-
I think that Ethan Bunch is a pre-made Sim living in Sunset Valley when the game starts.
The Sims 3 Wiki has this: http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Ethan_Bunch  :o
So, he's like.. around 4 generations old?

Right, The Bunch family lives in Sunset Valley at the start of the game, like the Goths, Altos, Landgraabs, etc.

Hi there! Long time lurker, first time poster; just wanted to tell you how much I'm enjoying your Dynasty Pam. You have a gift for storytelling and an eye for colour.

And believe me, you may think that you're not particularly creative, but if you saw the boxes I subject my poor sims to, you'd change your mind! I have no talent for colour, I hate multiple stories, and I tend to place items then think about walls. My current game has their bathrooms accessed from the outside because of... well, a combination of bad design and laziness.

lol!

 Welcome to the forum.  I'm with you on not doing well with color.  At one point I was in a college art course, (started college AFTER 6 kids), and just couldn't get my still life to look right.  My FOUR YEAR OLD comes in and says, "Mommy, it needs red right there."  (It was a still life of a green plant).  I figured I couldn't lose anything so put some red where he said and voila!  It all came to life.  I still can't see colors in that way, but Pam has a real gift for putting things together.

Thanks! And I just realised that part of the reason my decor looks a little off in my Sims' bungalow might be something to do with the lime green cowboy wallpaper in the living/kitchen/dining/hall thing.

... I'm really not very good at decorating.

My latest addition to the Dynasty house was to add a third floor above ground.  This gives the house a total of 5 levels.  The new top level is where Banana will live.  I went with the diagonal theme again as this part of the house is directly above Nectarine and Indigo's diagonal rooms.  The yellow is not banana yellow, but rather a bit more subdued yellow that's not so hard on the eyes.  In keeping with Banana's modern style, I used the bathroom items from High End Loft and the bedroom from the Stanke Collection.

I took these pictures with the walls up so you can fully appreciate the diagonal style, but it makes it hard to see the whole room.  Here's the bedroom side.



This is the bathroom side.  It can only be accessed from the bedroom.



And this is a small kitchen area where Banana and her husband can eat leftovers from the fridge without having to go all the way to the ground level.



This mirror was a gift and I think it's lovely in Banana's room.



I also made Banana a small area to relax and watch television while her nectar is processing in the basement.



Banana had a bit of a crush on Dean DeLong and had her first kiss with him, but his hot headed trait was worrisome.  Luckily, Chaquita Brannon has a brother who is now in high school.  Kerry Brannon is a Couch Potato, a Light Sleeper, and Eco Friendly.  He's muscular and wears very short hair.  I think he has a bit of a military look about him.



Banana had a specific wish to kiss Kerry.  Since she has shown a clear preference, Kerry will be the father of the next generation.  They are now going steady.



Speaking of Chiquita, she was having an independent interaction with Banana and I saw the message "Chiquita thinks Banana is ok."  It made me laugh.  ;D

Suddenly, the young days of the 3rd generation trio were over.  At one big birthday party, first Periwinkle aged up.



Next came wild child Chartreuse.



Last was handsome Oliver.



Here's a bonus shot of Chartreuse aging up, just for Metro.



Perwinkle became distraught over her gray hair and dowdy clothes.



I took care of all of them right away.







Chartreuse doesn't think Elderhood is any reason to give up her wild child image.  She's at level 6 of the Rock Star career, so she's really just getting started. 







I actually didn't know that Elders could wear bikinis.



The next day, Periwinkle posed for her portrait, ice sculpture, and photograph.  I'm not sure if she was cranky or just very serious about it.



After one last review of all the requirements, Periwinkle ate her first Ambrosia.  The third generation Dreamweaver immortal has emerged!

Congratulation on third immortal and for keeping Chartreuse wild and happy:)
It is always nice when Sims choose their future spouses like that and it was logical that Banana will choose to be Chiquita's sister-in-law hahahaha

*Hums Chiquita Banana theme and toddles off to bed after reading Pam's update*.   Good work, Pam.  Still loving it.  I get a kick out of Chartreuse.

A short update.

Banana successfully aged up to Young Adult.  All of her teenage friends came to the party.  (You can see Periwinkle's wedding ice sculpture in the background.)



She looked pretty good, but still had to get her hair, makeup, and wardrobe done.  I still think she looks just like her mother...  a blonde Periwinkle.





She got her portrait, ice sculpture, and photograph done the very next day.  Thankfully, my game successfully saved all of Banana's aging up and museum pieces, although it crashed during the redecorating of the living room.  Gah!  I got Periwinkle's museum room finished, though.  I'm using the codes to color the lights in the room the same color as the Immortal's name.  So, all of these lights are coded to be the periwinkle color.  Nectarine's room is a little harsh, so I'm going to be careful to use light and muted colors for the remaining Dynasty yet to be born.

So, I'm guessing for Banana's living room, that it'll be mostly items from the HELS and Store?

Yes, exactly.  I used a lot of Ultra Lounge living room items from the Sims 3 Store.

I decided to give the entire front of the house a dazzling Banana touch.  I was really tired of the black and white kitchen and bath.  Now it's all about Banana!

Here's the living room from the front of the house.  Note the lovely herring bone wood flooring.



The same room from the back view.  The only pattern is a thin diagonal stripe.  The rest is a banana colored brick/mortar pattern that is very subtle. 



The kitchen was only recolored and re-textured with banana colored marble and wood.  No items were actually changed.  The bathroom was given an updated modern sink, toilet, and mirror.  The rest was just recolored.





Oops!  I forgot to change the ceiling light in the bathroom.

His eyes, too.  He's the one who had the blue eyes that Periwinkle and Banana inherited.

My thoughts exactly. It seems as if the game uses one set of genetics more than another. Most of the time though, the wrong set. Don't get me wrong, they are pretty ;D Its just sometimes we like our CAS sims to have the dominant gene.
