The line to snuggle nooboos always grow longer as time goes by  ;D Jupiter is so cute, and has such interesting genes. I just realised I'm reading your 4x4, I don't understand how you can play two dynasties and stay sane, lol. Are you playing Sims 4 as well? I'd love to see the Sakuras there.

Thankfully, I finished the Rigel's and am solely playing the Sakura's again. Otherwise, I would have gone insane a while ago  :o

I do have the Sims 4. I haven't made any Sakura's on there, but I did make some Sims from other dynasties. I have a decadynasty that I've yet to finish because the computer it's on is slower than anything that I started with Jamie Jolina and I recreated some Sims from there because I loved them so much. They turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself  ;D

Chapter 43- Big Planet, Little Man

Now that Jupiter was a toddler, we immediately set forth on teaching him his skills so that he would be ready for childhood in just a short time. Everyone in the household pitched in to make sure that our little heir was right on schedule with his learning.



Even though he was not a merman, I could not help but enthuse with my son about my love of water and swimming, along with his older sisters, Star and Moona. My sweet little boy listened with a darling expression on his face.



Of course, even at his young age, I think he was just humoring his dear ol' dad...



Mother was greatly enjoying her time with Jupiter. We did not really get to enjoy our time with Star and Moona because it was essential for them to grow up quickly. Whenever Jupiter needed something, Mother was often the first person to him.



And little Jupiter enjoyed every moment of it.



Mother also helped to teach Jupiter how to walk.





Quite soon, the world was a little bigger for Jupiter.



When Jupiter was well set with his toddler skills, Nova returned to work. She always enjoyed when she would be able to meet up with our various family members across Monte Vista. Of course, nothing was better than being able to spend time with our daughters.



Back at home, Grandfather Orion was spending his day off by playing with Jupiter. He would have his required toddler skills down in no time.





But I was also able to sneak in some play time with my son as well.





Of course, Jupiter's toddler days had to come to an end at some point. Great-Grandmother Andi brought Jupiter to his birthday cake the next morning.



We all gathered around to help celebrate Jupiter's birthday.









The sparkles surrounded my little boy...



...and he was suddenly a little man.



Jupiter gained the Unlucky trait.



The planet Jupiter is quite big, so I knew that my little boy would have big things in his future.

After reading this and seeing Jupiter's expressions I'm starting to miss toddlers.

Yeah, that's one of the things that my sister and I miss the most in the Sims 4.



Chapter 44- Eccentricity

Before Jupiter could set forth on practicing his personal interests, it is important that he receive some tutoring first so that he would be prepared for his first day of school. It was imperative that he make the honor roll. Jupiter was a bright boy so I had no qualms whatsoever about his education.



Once his grades were exceptional, Jupiter spent the rest of his birthday trying his hand at a new skill. He had always been quite creative but could not really do anything with his creativity until now. Nova and I had purchased an inventing table for him and Jupiter took to it quite quickly.





Nova was sure to tell the family members she encountered all about Jupiter. My dear sister Selena was pleased to hear that her only nephew was doing so well.



Jupiter's child years passed quickly. He spent a good portion of his time at school and when he was in the house, Jupiter spent his time tinkering at his inventing table. Once he made the honor roll, it was time for Jupiter to age up into a young man.





Jupiter was quite excited to age up because he knew that there would be some new skills that he would be now able to learn.









With some uncomfortable looking contorting, Jupiter was now a teenager.





Like his child birthday, Nova and I purchased a special gift for our son on his teen birthday. Jupiter was a bit disappointed that he could not paint since he was quite artistic. After pondering the subject for a bit, Nova and I came up with a solution: sculpting! Jupiter could get his fill of art that way. He seemed quite excited that he would be able to try his hand at the arts after all.



Here is teenage Jupiter.



He gained the Inappropriate trait.



Jupiter set off after celebrating his birthday and updating his wardrobe to the cemetery to get a job, as per his requirements.



Once he returned home, Grandfather Orion managed to catch up with Jupiter before Jupiter could resume his inventing. Now that he was in high school, Jupiter needed to make the honor roll again.



Of course, Jupiter also made some time to talk to his sisters when they called him to wish him a happy birthday.





But, of course, Jupiter's birthday went out like a bang.



The unwelcome visitor was quickly disregarded and things returned to normal. Jupiter excelled in school, as expected, and secured a romantic interest. Her name was Kerry Free. She was a sweet girl.



Kerry also really seemed to like my son. Then again, how could you not?





Jupiter's teenage years weren't all focused on requirements; he did get in some fun time with his Grandmother.



He was also told some ghost stories by the maid.



That seemed to really have an impact on Jupiter...



I forgot to mention that the next update may take awhile. My laptop, which has the photos for this story, has a broken hinge and my dad found a place to repair it. However, I have no idea when they're going to get the part in, so I am temporarily without my laptop. *Eye twitch* I'm having laptop withdrawal...

It apparently is  :o. I saw the flashlight and the accompanying ghost story images and was wondering who might have been the one telling the story. Lo and behold, it was the maid!

HOORAY FOR HAVING MY LAPTOP BACK!!!



Chapter 45- Passing the Torch

Things were pretty mundane around the house. Jupiter worked on his requirements. I painted and Nova continued solving cases around Monte Vista. Grandfather Orion was invited to a party and was thrilled to see Grandmother Daphne at the party as well.





Grandfather Orion was also quite happy to see his sister, Great Aunty Luna. Aunt Luna waited patiently with one of Mother's newest books  and read until her brother came up for air.



Back at home, Jupiter spent the remainder of his teen years getting a head start on his skill challenges. He continued working on his inventing skill challenges, though I'm not sure that contorting yourself was a requirement of that particular skill...





Regardless of how he was doing it, Jupiter was getting things done and was soon ready to age up into a young man.



Great Grandmother Andi baked a lovely birthday cake for Jupiter and we all gathered around to celebrate his birthday.











Now a young adult, Jupiter was now the active heir. I was so proud of my son.



Here is Jupiter as a young adult.



His final trait was Excitable.

Jupiter turned out to be quite adorable. I wasn't sure about the glasses for him, but they really seem to suit him.



Back to back updates since I was gone for so long  ;D

Chapter 46- An Odd Couple

Hey there! It's Jupiter Rigel. I'm the next in line in my Great Granny's dynasty. So, now that I'm the heir, I got a special gift, though I'm not entirely sure why this gift was so important. I mean, it was just a dusty old lamp, right?



Holy canoli! There's something in this thing!



Actually, there's someone in this lamp. How in Monte Vista did this pretty lady fit in there?



I didn't get much of a chance to ask the genie anything because I had to run off to work. There was only one kick butt ghost hunter in town and that was me!



Don't worry, Mr. Kitty, I'll get rid of the ghosty!



I had a special ghost hunting mission one night. I was pretty happy to hear that my sisters had a ghost problem...wait, that came out wrong. I was happy that I got to see my sisters, Star and Moona, when I came over to take care of their ghost problem.



I made sure that I took care of those invaders as quickly as possible because there was no way that I was going to let my big sisters live in a house full of ghosties...unless they were in to that sort of thing of course.



Of course, being involved in the ghost hunting career, I did have to spend some time at the cemetery. The place was kind of boring during the day.



The next day, however, was much more fun. I graduated from high school!



I was the valedictorian of the class and was voted Most Artistic.





My next order of business was to hang out with my new genie friend again. There was something about her...I just got butterflies in my stomach when I thought about her. So, I summoned her once again and made the decision to free her from the lap.



The genie was kind of surprised when I told her of my idea but she seemed grateful. Really grateful.



Now that was a great graduation gift.





I decided to ask her to be my girlfriend and she agreed! Yay!





And then I decided to take it one step further and ask her to marry me.



And she said yes again!!





My lady then officially moved into the house with us. Here is Chana Mock, my lovely lady genie.



She had a Good Sense of Humor, Great Kisser, Disciplined, Easily Impressed and a Natural Born Performer. She wanted to be a Magician.



So, things were going pretty great for Chana and me. However, my Dad reminded me of one thing...Kerry was kind of, sort of...still considered my romantic interest. Darn, I knew I forgot something! I called up Kerry and broke the news to her.



She wasn't too happy about the break up.







I love Chana and Jupiter as a couple. They are just so odd looking together. He's kind of skinny and nerdy and she's loud and larger than life. They are so cute in an odd way  ;)

Chana and Jupiter actually turned out to be a really cute couple. They would roll wishes and autonomously do romantic interactions with/to each other all of the time  :-*



Chapter 47- Chana the Magnificent

Now that Chana had moved into the house, Mom knew that we would need room for our future nooboos. It was a sad moment but we knew that it was coming that Mom had to move out.



Dad was pretty bummed that Mom had moved out. They had been together since they were kids for the most part. Chana wanted to be a magician so she needed a lot of practice to get her tricks down pat. She practiced her tricks for Dad to try and make him feel better.



How could you not feel better when you saw that cute as a button face?





While Chana worked her magic, err...worked on her magic, I continued working as a ghost hunter. The Mayor of Monte Vista was so impressed with my ghost-butt-kicking skills that I received an award.



One career reward down, one to go!

Chana and I mostly spent our time working on our careers. I would take care of my skill challenges during the day while Chana would go out and perform for tips.





It was hard but it wasn't too bad to have to work all the time on my career and my skill challenges. One of the best perks was being able to see my sisters.



I told Moona and Star all about Chana and how we were engaged. They were happy to be invited to the wedding and were looking forward to the ceremony in a few days.

Chana was working on her magic skills and had finally earned enough promotions to feel confident to try and audition for a gig at a local venue.





The proprietor was impressed and gave Chana a shot on the stage!



It wouldn't be for a few hours so Chana decided to get in some practice by performing for the customers. Notice a special someone in the crowd? Yep, Great Aunty Luna was out and about that day.



Speaking of family members, I had another job to take care of some ghosts at another family member's house.



Great Uncle Caelum came home right as I was working on de-ghostifying the fridge.



Great Grandma Daphne waited outside while I did my job.



What I wouldn't do for family!

Holy returning guest Rigel's! That was like a lot of spares that had ghost problems......the bigger question is why the Rigel's attract so many ghosts that they need Jupiter. Anywho, Chana is great she and Jupiter make a cute couple. They are so mismatched that it's adorable. I am glad you got your laptop back which I assume you are as well.

You know I'm happy I got my laptop back; you saw me hug it when I got it  :o



Chapter 48- A Close Call

Chana and I set our wedding for that coming weekend. We invited the whole gang over to help us celebrate our big day.





No matter how many weddings he's seen, Great Grandfather Camillo still complained about the chairs that we had set up in front of the wedding arch.





But at the end of the day, everyone was really excited for us to finally tie the knot.



After our wedding, Chana and I were looking forward to enjoying some wedding cake.



And so was the rest of the family.



While everyone was enjoying some of our cake, Chana and I tiptoed away from the party to have our own celebration for just the two of us.



Despite the tons of people that came to the wedding, people noticed that Chana and I had gone missing. So, we headed back downstairs after we enjoyed some alone time and joined the party. Grandma Aurora had some fun with her new granddaughter-in-law.





Dad was happy to spend some time with his dad, Grandpa Samir.



Chana and I enjoyed the next couple of days just being newlyweds. However, it was back to the daily grind a short time later. I continued working on my skill challenges.



And I also decided to try my hand at sculpting. I couldn't try out painting because my Dad already did that so I found another way to have some fun with the arts.



Another one of the skill challenges that I decided to try out was blowing some stuff up. Dad gave me a bunch of vases to set up in the backyard that I could play around with.



The explosions were pretty cool, I had to admit.





Speaking of explosions, Chana and I had a very, very scary moment that happened while she was out to perform her magic at one of the local venues.



Her show was going quite well, actually, when the unthinkable happened.



The sky went dark, except for a big fiery ball of light that was in the sky. The light got bigger and bigger until all of the residents of Monte Vista knew exactly what was coming. A METEOR!!!





I panicked when I heard that there was a meteor right where Chana was performing. Thankfully, her show was already over by the time the  meteor had it. A close call for sure.

Once I knew that my dear wifey was safe, I got back to working on my inventing skill and managed to max it.



I tried sharing the good news with some of the ghosties that I met while working but they didn't seem impressed.



I guess they would have been more interested in my sculpting stories because I really got into that. Really.



Really into it.

Lucky Chana survived the meteor though a ghost would have also been a great addition to the family.

I actually panicked when I saw the meteor incoming. Getting a ghost spouse was the last thing on my mind  :o



Chapter 49- A Secret Project

Chana was quickly taking Monte Vista by storm with her magic act. She was invited to perform at a number of different venues, which she gladly accepted.





Her tricks got more daring, which certainly caught the attention of the audience.



The proprietor was quite pleased with Chana and she was announced the winner of Sim Fest. Of course she was. Chana is just awesome like that.



In other news, my sister, Star, was now working as the clerk at the consignment shop.



We discovered Star's new job while out searching for gems. I needed to get a special gem for a special project...everyone was pitching in to help me find that certain something. Great Grandma Andi flew across the countryside to collect some gems.



I would have done it myself but I had some other pressing matters to attend to, like my skill challenges. I really wanted to get them done as soon as possible because there was a certain thing on my mind...



Chana also started working on the martial arts skill with the stuff that Grandma Andi picked up centuries ago when she went to Shang Simla. She heard that it was possible to get gems or something from space rock blocks so she was going to give it a shot.





Dad also joined into the hunt for my gems. He volunteered to look at the consignment shop everyday. I think it was because he could spend time with Star while helping me with the dynasty at the same time.







It was a lot of searching with no reward. It kind of made me a little crazy. I started doing things that I normally wouldn't do. Like stick my tongue to a block of ice.



Yep. Definitely not a good idea.



Then again, maybe it was just a midlife crisis. I had my adult birthday while I was out at work. Once I finished my shift, I aged up into an adult.



Chana surprised me for my birthday by showing me that she could produce gems from space rock blocks. I kept hoping that she would eventually produce the one that I needed for my special project.



I also got a cool new outfit for work. I looked pretty good if I do say so myself.



I was out at work when it happened. Chana broke a gem and produced a pink diamond. Yay!



Grandpa Orion sent out the gem to be cut in a special design for my project. He received it in the mail the next day and made sure to leave it off in my room.



I was out back working on collecting scrap that I had blown up when Grandpa Orion told me that the gem had arrived.



With that news, I bounded upstairs to work on my secret project.



I couldn't wait to get started!

Yeah, my sims tend to wear the most unfortunate outfits in public... :o



Chapter 50- It Lives!!

Chana continued to have amazing performances at the local venues, one after another. At this rate, she was sure to complete her lifetime wish in no time.





The audience seemed to think so too.



I was working some magic of my own back at home. I was working on my secret project and was pleased to say that I was making good progress.



IT LIVES!!!



It's official! I made my first simbot! Her name was Jacqueline and she was amazing. I was so proud to call her my daughter...er, creation?



Either way, I was happy that she was here.



I was also very happy for another reason. Now that Jacqueline was here, I had completed all of my skill challenges and my requirements too. That meant that Chana and I could finally start a family.





Chana told me the good news a short time later. We were going to be parents!!





Everyone was really excited for there to be a new family member on the way. Dad was looking forward to becoming a grandfather.



Thankfully, he wouldn't have to wait too long because, while out at a spa treatment, Chana went into labor.





I rushed to meet Chana at the hospital.



We welcomed our son, Cloud, into the world. Unfortunately, he was an Imaginary Friend like me, so he was ineligible to become the heir. It was a sad moment but I now understood what Dad had gone through when he had to give up Star and Moona so quickly. I was now going to have to do the same thing with Cloud. But, we've come this far in the dynasty and there was no way that we could quit now.

Because Cloud was not the heir, we aged him up right away.



He was such a cutie. Cloud was also a sweet little boy. He was Friendly and a Light Sleeper.





Great Grandpa Orion got started on teaching Cloud his toddler skills so that we could age up him up again.



Just because Cloud had to grow up quickly didn't mean that we weren't going to give him all of our love and attention during the time that he was here in the household.







There was also some play time too because we wanted to enjoy as much of his childhood as we could.

Yeah, that made me think he was a genieboo too but no such luck.



Chapter 51- Try, Try Again

With his toddler skills complete, it was time for Cloud to age up again. I let Dad bring him up to the cake this time.









While the family enjoyed some cake, Great Grandpa Orion gave me a potion to freeze my age so that I would be around for a while. That was really important since we still needed the next heir.



Speaking of the next heir, he or she was on the way!



Great Grandma Andi made Cloud some fresh strawberry crepes to enjoy before he was tutored for school.







Chana and I also made sure to find some time to hang out with our son. Cloud seemed to have some fun too.





We let Cloud enjoy the rest of his birthday doing whatever he wanted. The next day he was ready to age up again into a teenager.













Right after his birthday, it was time for some school work with Grandpa Orion again.





Grandpa Orion had to go to work so Chana volunteered to take over the tutoring duties.



They were only able to get in a few hours of studying together because Chana went into labor.



We rushed to the hospital to welcome in our daughter, Leia.



She was also an Imaginary Friend. Guess we're having more children...

Oh no. At least when you finally have an heir s/he will have siblings in town to visit.

I actually had Cloud and Leia move out together so they would have someone to be with...I get too emotionally invested with my sims/characters  ;D



Chapter 52- Even More Birthdays

Since she was not the heir either, we immediately aged up Leia. Grandma Aurora brought her up to the cake.





Grandma Aurora then got started on working with Leia on her toddler skills.









Once she got walking and talking down, Leia was then taught her final toddler skill.



The next day, it was time for Leia to have yet another birthday. Great Grandpa Orion brought her up to the cake this time.







Once she aged up into a child this time, Chana got to work on tutoring Leia so that she could earn an A before aging up yet again into a teenager.





Speaking of teenagers, it was Cloud's turn once again to age up. He would be growing up into a young adult this round.



Little sister Leia was right behind him, cheering him on. It was nice to know that they at least had each other.









Here is young adult Cloud. My little boy is quite handsome, don't you think?



His final traits were Friendly, Light Sleeper, Perfectionist, Loves the Outdoors, and Bookworm. Cloud decided that he wanted to become a World Renowned Surgeon.



While we worked with Cloud on getting his piece done for the mausoleum, Chana spent some time with Leia. She performed some of her favorite magic tricks for Leia, who thoroughly enjoyed them.
