Ok, as much as I appreciate the name suggestions, I've already got the last three names picked out.  And if one of them accidently gets suggested here, I won't be able to use it because then it won't be a complete surprise.  So, no more name suggestions, please.  :)

Cinnamon aged up to Young Adult with an absolutely huge birthday party.  She doesn't have a lot of friends, but it seemed like everyone she invited showed up and brought more with them.  Very different from the first party she threw where nobody showed up at all and it was sad.





A little of her dad's fondness for pirate costumes rubbed off on her with her new formal attire, but the rest of her wardrobe is conservative and professional, as is fitting for a future World Renowned Surgeon.  After seeing Cinnamon age up to a nice healthy weight, I've decided that the Immortals are entirely too thin.  I don't know what the deal is, but they are going to start eating more so they don't look like skeletons.  Especially Periwinkle and Banana.



So many of the town have turned into vampires.  Chiquita Brannon and her brother, Kerry, are both vampires.  Remember Kerry was Banana's high school sweetheart.  Even Banana's look alike cousin, Ida, has turned into a vampire.  Two of Cinnamon's Wolff cousins are vampires, too.  Here is Bettina Wolff, vampire paparazzi.



Cinnamon's new bedroom is next to her study on the third floor.  It's decorated in a victorian style.





The adjoining bathroom carries a similar theme.





All the new instruments in Late Night are just begging for a band in this Dynasty.  The four Immortals (Carina, Nectarine, Periwinkle, and Banana) have gotten their own instruments and formed Carina and the Dreamweavers.  Cinnamon's party is the first time they jammed together.  Half of the guests also joined in.

Banana with her banana guitar.



Periwinkle with her periwinkle keyboard/piano.



Nectarine on her nectarine drums.



And finally, Carina on her white and black bass. 



Cinnamon joined the medical career the day after her birthday.  She's got the weekend free before she starts on Monday morning.  She's spending her time playing against ranked chess opponents, searching for celestial bodies, and reading books.  She has no romantic interest yet and I'm a little concerned that they will all be vampires by the time she's ready to marry and have a baby.  She might have to get married a little early just to get the guy into the household so I can protect him from vampires!

Oh man, you have the "bitey vampire" glitch problem from Sims 2, where vampires constantly turn townies into vampires! Ugh! I think the game's AI is messed up. :(

Lola Belle in the Brdigeport I am playing(in my own Dynasty) is a vampire, so are half the Strikers and Johnny Jones, who invaded the lot! Yikes!

Is there some way we can figure out the rate at which townies are turned into vampires? (Sorry if I used that term, I mean non-played households.)

Anyways, nice to see that Carina and the other immortals are a band now. Sorry that Cinnamon's not interested in anyone. If you're worried about finding a mate, then what I suggest is to dump the whole "true love" thing and just grab the first man who is compatible. Since you don't need the man except as a father for the next immortal, it'd work best to find someone who isn't too ugly-looking. And you're right, something it's best just to hold off on career for a bit to get the next spouse married and the next generation bred. I focus on that first before career with my Sims.

BTW: Does Carina mean gray or salt-n-pepper in some foreign tongue? I'm sorry but I don't get what the name means. I know what nectarine(citrus orange), charteuse(yellow-green), and periwinkle(lilac blue) mean, but carina is a mystery.

Carina is actually the name of a constellation.  Carina Dreamweaver was a roleplay character I started many years ago and I've morphed her into a Sim now.  The black and white thing with her is just because when I first started this Dynasty, I didn't want to think about colors to decorate the house, so it was all black and white.  I got tired of it around the time the 2nd generation was born and started doing the colors gradually.  :)

Oh, okay, never heard of that constellation before - wait, I heard it in Beautiful Katamari, it confused a guide writer and he thinks it's the compass constellation near... somewhere.

Geeeeez...

Well, anyways, I'm glad to hear the backstory of your Sim and wish you luck on the rest of your legacy. If you want to comment on mine(I know it's not playing for points, but it's a pretty decent story if you like to hear the background of the names), just look for "Allez Cuisine." I've taken your words to heart and won't do anything that would get blatantly obvious(like the makeover station and turning someone into a vampire, etc, etc); love your Dreamweavers band!

(Could you PM me with tips on how to use hex codes for coloring?)

I forgot (again) to mention Cinnamon's new trait.  Ambitious.  Added to Workaholic, Genius, Hates the Outdoors, and Bookworm...  I think she'll make an excellent doctor.

Great update!  And I love the video of the band playing.  And if I may?  What set are those wall lamps from in the new bathroom?  I adore them!

I bought them alone and don't know which set they came from.  Here they are at the Sims 3 Store.

Cinnamon is doing well in her first week at the hospital.  She got a promotion to level 2 Bed Pan Cleaner on the first day and missed a promotion on the second day by just a hair.  Her co-workers are two vampires and a SimBot. 

As you could see from the video, the family got a hot tub.  They all immediately got a wish to go hot tubbing the moment I went back into Live Mode.  Mario is the only man in the house and is 93 days old.  He wants to upgrade the hot tub, so I hope he can get it done before Grim comes.



Cinnamon enjoyed the hot tub.



Now that Banana is an Immortal and Cinnamon is a Young Adult, it was time to shuffle around the furniture and redecorate.  Here's Banana's completed museum room with her furnishings.



This redecoration was the hardest for me.  I'm not as pleased with it as I was with the others.  It's shades of cinnamon with dark teal accents and is done with the Regal Living set.





The kitchen and bath got re-colored to match.

I really like the re-coloring you did Pam.  And I love the Teal accents, brings out that particular color against the cinnamon color.  :D

I agree.  The teal makes it pop.  Cinnamon wouldn't be an easy color as everything could easily end up looking like it was from a gingerbread house, but the redecoration definitely does not.

I know!  I caught it after I had posted the pictures.  ;D

Thanks for the comments, everyone.  I'm glad you like the new look even if it's not my favorite.  I'm getting used to it now.  I used moveobjects on to get the back-to-back sofas, which is not bad.  And they can watch television even from the chairs way in the back, which was intended to be a sort of sitting area separate from the television area. 

I agree.  The teal makes it pop.  Cinnamon wouldn't be an easy color as everything could easily end up looking like it was from a gingerbread house, but the redecoration definitely does not.

That's exactly what was happening even with multiple shades of cinnamon.  Plus, the Victorian style is not something I care for personally, so it was harder for me.  I thought I was never going to find the right wood and fabric colors!  I went to the direct opposite side of the color wheel to get the teal color and it helped a lot.  For all the time Cinnamon spends in that room, it might as well be fuchsia.  She's working all the time now and spends most of her free time in her study on the computer working from home, playing chess tournaments, or using the telescope.  She's a great Sim, though, and quite well behaved.  She doesn't sneak into a place she's not supposed to be like her mother always did.

I'll have another update soon.  There's some amusing drama going on.

Cinnamon is doing quite well in her medical career.  She got promoted on her first day and had made it to level 5 by the end of the week.  She doesn't have time for much else besides work.  She works from home almost every night and had to read a book for work.  Now she'll also have her daily journals to read every night.  She's a Bookworm and very fast reader, though, so it won't take her long.  It just doesn't leave time for a social life.  The one fellow who looks like Oliver, Frank Wakefield, now has a fiancee.  I really have no idea who she'll marry when the time comes.



The family has a new butler named Wesley Herbert.  Cinnamon had a wish to get some advice from him.  He told her she should be a writer.  Alrighty then.  You just go back to cooking and cleaning, Wesley, ok?



The band Carina and the Dreamweavers is doing great.  They all wear their everyday clothes when they play, but I'm going to get them some uniforms.  Here they are jamming at Central Park.











There's a new Oliver lookalike in town.  His name is Ferby Glover and he's a paparazzi, always hanging around the house.  Not only does he look exactly like elderly Oliver, but he wears the same formal clothes that Oliver wore.



Even more strange is that he's on the family tree now.  There was a notice in the paper that a new baby named Tarik was born at the Langerak household, which is where Banana's lookalike cousin, Ida Deppiesse, lives.  And she's a vampire now, remember?  Well, Ferby is Tarik's father!  Banana decided to go visit her lifelong-best-friend-turned-vampire and see the new baby.  I guess this is what Banana would look like as a vampire.



Here's Banana holding the little guy.  Doesn't his skin look a little glossy?  Don't his eyes look rather shiny?



That's right.  Little Tarik is also a vampire.



The family loves the new hot tub.  Mario and Banana especially like to sneak off for some private moments.





Little did they know, Grim was lurking and was kind enough to wait until they had fully enjoyed their last moments together before he came for Mario at age 95 days.





It seems each of the spouses leaves behind something special.  Christopher left the koi pond, Kenny left the rows of topiaries, Oliver left ice sculptures...  and Mario left an unbreakable hot tub.



Rest in peace, Mario (Wolff) Dreamweaver.



And now there are six.
