The first young adult to move out was Cuatro on Week 8 Day 4. Level 2 career - Culinary, Max Skill - Cooking, Business Purchased - Flying V's Coffee House, Masterpiece Portrait placed in Honey Comb Basement. He moved to a small home at 255 Starry Way. He will be missed. It's back to pollen punch and birthday cake.



On Week 9 Day 2, he was followed by Dos. Level 2 career - Music, Max Skill - Guitar, Business Purchased - Gypsy Wagon, Masterpiece Portrait placed. He moved to 177 Foothill Dr., possibly the most expensive empty house in Starlight Shores. He made a lot of guitar tips and deserved a nice house.



Next Up: Uno, level 2 career-Daycare, Max Skill-Logic, Business Purchased-C-Ment Shoe Factory, Masterpiece portrait placed. Thankfully, it only took 2 days to reach level 2 of Daycare. The King and Queen were around a lot, and with both being family oriented, they would not leave those toddlers alone! He moved to 73 Los Suenos Strip on week 9 day 3.



Last to go was Tres. She was still around when the newest swarm was born. I have never seen a sim take longer to max writing. Level 2 career-writer, max skill-writing, building purchased-The Market Basket, Materpiece Portrait placed. Week 10 day 1 she moved to 72 Ocean View Dr.



This is possibly the worst looking bunch of masterpiece portraits I've ever seen. Really, Misty?
Misty: Hey, you're the one who accepted them, whoever you are.
Yes, I was afraid not to. And never you mind who I am!

Goodbye to Unos, Dos, Tres and Cuatro!  I love that Tres never outgrew her permanently "unamused" face.  Can't wait to see what the next swam has in store.

The next swarm was quickly produced. Misty spent her pregnancy producing useful elixirs for future use. Whereas Sonny pretty much danced through the pregnancy and childbirth along with Tres who was just too stressed to finish her book "Fairies are Your Friends - Really". The nooboos, triplets again, were born hungry. Misty fed two of them, and Tres fed the third, Siete. From then on all she wanted to do was snuggle Siete. Even after moving, she visits most every day and seeks out Siete.
As soon as they were fed, the babes were aged up and potty trained.

Here we have Cinco, Athletic and Friendly. He is a copy of the Queen - hair, eyes, skin tone, wings, ear shape.



Seis is Good and Loves the Outdoors. She has features of both parents.



And Siete, Brave and Athletic, and in many ways her own little creature.



Two days later, they were children. Childhood is, indeed, fleeting.

Welcome to Skilling After Dark

Since joining the military, Sonny has realized that he has neglected his strength training. Time to pack on some muscle!



Cinco: I want to be in the military like Pop. Command and Control.
Siete: I want to be a firefighter like Pop used to be. I'll keep our brothers and sisters from burning down the town.



Seis: I want to be a fisherman. Pop's never done that!
Sonny from a distance: Hey, that's next.



Misty, who is now a fortuneteller (you are destined to move), is working hard on her mixology skill. Skill gain drinks are imperative. If only Tres had been able to use them.

Welcome Cinco, Seis and Siete! I love Siete's eyes. That shade of blue looks very pretty on her.

All of your babies are beatiful...and vary in coloring.  Mine were all born pretty similar in coloring, and they are on the rainbow slider.

The children became teens, skills were worked on, but the house was quiet, eerily quiet - no pranks, no fairy tricks, no mood swings. Graduation was soon upon us. Cinco was valedictorian, Seis got most likely to complete her lifetime wish (Living in the Lap of Luxury was already completed), and Siete, our future firefighter, was most likely to burn down her own house.
Misty: I see your furture. You will move out soon. Not quite, Misty.



Look who's completed their requirements! Cinco would be there to, but he was off working at his military job. Misty, who painted 4 masterpiece portraits in 2 days of the last swarm, took a week this time to complete 3.



Finally, the so called masterpiece were complete and placed in the Honeycomb Basement of Questionable Art.



And Misty could get back to creating 25 new drinks. Still dressed in her Fortuneteller uniform after her last day of work, Misty waves goodbye to yet another broken glass.



Siete, Brave, Athletic, Daredevil, Bookworm, and Lucky, was the first to move on week 13 day 4. She chose the house next door to Tres at 82 Ocean View Dr. Level 2 career-firefighter, Max Skill-Athletic, Building-Hoi Polloi Events Center, portrait placed.



Next to go was Seis - Loves the Outdoors, Good, Angler, Eco-friendly, and Ambitious. On week 13 day 5, she found a new home with a pond at 18 Palm Park Drive. Level 2 Career (actually L. 5)-Angler, Max Skill-Fishing, Building-Serenity Bookstore and Spa, portrait placed.



Finally, Cinco, who had so many brilliant portraits painted, - Athletic, Friendly, Brave, Handy, Bookworm. On week 13 day, he moved to a Handyman's Special at 118 Foothill DR. Level 2 Career (again actually L. 5) Military, Max Skill-Handiness, Building-The Binder Clips Center, portrait placed, just barely.

Poor Misty is always dragging behind in her requirements. She has a lot of responsibilities: painting, elixirs, mood drinks. Basically Sonny just works out and upgrades things, which is pretty much done now. Who planned this anyway?

Once again elixirs were use, chimes were heard, and three days later triplets were born. While Sonny handled the aging up chaos, Misty took her turn at becoming temporarily human and redeemed a clone voucher. They've had good luck in finding Blessing of the Fae elixirs at the shop. Misty could make them, but is lacking a vital ingredient, fairy damsel fish. Time for Sonny to start fishing!

Ocho Bright - Loves the Outdoors, Heavy Sleeper



Nueve Bright - Disciplined, Athletic



Diez Bright - Genius, Brave



Eins Bright - Misty's clone, Workaholic, Virtuoso, Ambitious



When the toddlers learned their basics, Sonny and Misty took a trip to China. They bought the basic fruits, recipe, and fishing books along with a training dummy and blocks. Sonny spent much of the 5 days fishing. Ah, Chinese deathfish perhaps I can sell them for more back home. Teeheehee!



Misty used her time producing meals that the adventurers at home base ate almost as fast as she cooked them. Yes, they love me! Cooking truly does win the hearts of humans.



Back home the children worked on their skills. Eins painted.



Diez singed himself.



Ocho and Nueve: Skills...who needs them! Just you wait, tiny minions, just you wait.

Sonny, our King has red hair, but not as bright red as Nueve and Diez. The one that surprised me was Siete with black hair. Where did that come from. This swarm of minions brought in random wing color and style as well. I'm happy with these rogue genes. Otherwise they would even look more alike.

I love Nueve's red hair! It really stands out on her! Congrats on the new triplets and the clone. Lookig forward to learning some German   ;D. If you run out of languages, I can give you one through ten in Japanese. Just an idea if you need it :)

Childhood went by in a blur of homework and skilling. The teen years brought on constant mood swings and fairy trapped computers.

Ocho began learning the alchemy skill, popping constant wishes to mix vials of bliss. Stressed by this household I understand. Lonely, not so much.



Nueve began learning martial arts. She wants to be a thief, though I don't know why she wants to steal the humans' stuff when whole houses will be taken over.



Diez, our little genius who is always the last to get an A in school, likes searching for stars in his pink skivvies. Better hope no one is watching back.



Finally Eins, our sweet artist, prepares for a career in architectural design.



And here they are going in to City Hall to graduate. Sonny turned around and left immediately to go home and dance. Having the house to himself for once is more important than seeing his children graduate.
Sonny: Hey, there will be more, and they're getting on my nerves.



I took this shot as kind of a toss away, but as it turned out, it was my only chance to get them all together. Sonny wandered off at the last graduation, too.

The first to leave home this time was Diez which was amazing as his was the last portrait to be a masterpiece. He breezed through his max skill, logic, and career, Ghost Hunter level 7. He purchased Varg's Tavern, and yes, at last his portrait was placed. He moved to 627 Vista Blvd. on week 17 day 7. His traits: Genius, Brave, Eccentric, Party Animal, Computer Whiz.



Ocho reached level 2 in his Alchemist career on his first day as a young adult. His portrait was masterpiece quality on the first try, but he was a bit slow achieving level 10 in the Alchemy skill. He purchased the Broadstreet Business Tower and Grill. On week 18 day 2, he moved to 114 Foothill Drive. His traits: Loves the Outdoors, Heavy Sleeper, Bookworm, Nurturing, Eccentric.



Eins didn't start her Architectural Design career until her painting skill was up to level 9. She still got to level 5 before finally maxing the painting skill. She's one of those completely sweet sims. She just wasn't ready to leave her mother. None the less, she purchased the Holy Cow Memorial Hospital, and her masterpiece portrait was placed. On week 18 day 5 she moved to 112 Foothill Drive. Her traits: Workaholic, Ambitious, Virtuoso, Artistic, Excitable.



The last to go was Nueve. Her masterpiece portrait was placed first. She bought the Tot Spot Playground. She mastered Martial Arts easily as she spontaneously just loved breaking boards. She went for her first day in the Criminal career on a Tuesday and would have gone to level 2 that day, but she was arrested. The cops took her IF doll so no one would be jealous. Unfortunately, her next day at work was Friday when she reached level 2. She immediately moved (week 18 day 6) to 357 Hill Street. Her traits: Disciplined, Athletic, Kleptomaniac, Good Sense of Humor, Lucky.



I've taken to randomizing traits when I don't really have something in mind. I'll accept anything except Mean Spirited or Absent Minded.
The Honeycomb Basement of You Call That a Masterpiece





Misty had job trouble too. She missed her final promotion in her Culinary career on a Sunday by an invisible hair, and her boss, the jerk, wouldn't give her a promotion. She too had to wait until her first work day, Friday. So they qualified for their fourth Reproduction Day on week 18 day 6.

King Sonny                                                                        Queen Misty

Max Career - Angler                                                            Culinary
Skill Challenge 1 - Amateur Ichthyologist                              Menu Maven
Skill Challenge 2 - Commercial Fisherman                             Star Chef (when she hit 50 meals-she quit cooking)
Unique BF - Nigel Martin                                                      Aren Dutton
Unique LTH Reward - Hover Bed                                           Queen of the Fae

Here is their 5 Object Collection - Beetles, namely Red Assassin Bugs they caught in China (Misty 4, Sonny 1) valued at $3,000
They spent 5 days in China x 2 sims = 10 travel days



Without Story Progression on, sims are starting to die off. Looking in map view in the middle of the night when most occupants are home, there are only a few non-elders left in town. By the time I finally get to that point, there may be no one left to kick-out.

The cops take the best things when you get arrested.  I had the cops take one of my sims' flowers she got from her boyfriend one time because they didn't want her to escape using them.  Yeah.  Like that was going to happen.

All she had in her inventory was the doll and her diploma (I had cleared it out hoping she would be moving). 

The next swarm soon arrived. The only pregnancy related wish Misty had was to go to the day spa.
First up, Zwei - Artistic and Easily Impressed. He just looks bored to me.



Next we have Drei - Athletic, Loves the Outdoors. Is there a hidden clueless trait? If so, she's got it. Maybe she just wanted to learn her skills outdoors.



And finally, Vier - Friendly, Good. No drones this time their OCD (obsessive, compulsive dictator) needed a break. This is not a sprint, more like a long, slow crawl through a desert wasteland.



Misty: Finally, I've been wishing to buy a guitar since Week 1 Day 1. To help us buy out the town, I will earn many tips. Not as much as the universally famous Metropolis Man, but I will do my best.



Sonny:
Come my minion, you will listen to me and I will become more charming. It is your duty.



Sonny: See how charismatic I've become. I will become a politician - a bribe here, a new law there and the town will be ours. TeeHeeHee!
Vier: Stop it Pop. You're scaring me.



Zwei: Just leave me out of it!
