A Sporty Immortality

After Sound apologized to Maria for dropping her on the ground from the shocking news he quickly hustled over to the Theater to join the Music Career. Recipe, always the gentleman, showed Maria no less respect than a real spouse instead of the cheap short-term loaner spouse she kind of is. Wait...that came out wrong.



Maria: “The Rear Museum. Sound told me about this special place.”
Recipe: “Your rear fits in perfectly here, Maria. Sorry again about the mix-up in joining our family.”
Maria: “That’s okay, Recipe. I’ll cherish every minute.”
Recipe: “Judging by the measurements I’m taking with my hands I’ll have to expand the Rear Museum to allow even more butts.”


Maria and Sporty aged up to Elder on the exact same day. For those of you playing along with the home board game version of Immortal Dynasty, then move Sound’s guitar game piece to the freak out room right now. That’s right...Sound’s mother and wife are the same age. That’s creeponomics 101 right there. But, as is the Manly tradition, immortals get to keep their hair color from the Adult stage, so Sporty had a few years removed. Maria wasn’t so lucky, but it’s clear she still has the face of an angel...



Sound is quickly working his way up the ranks of the Music career. Currently he sits at the 8th rung. His BlackOps requirement is done thanks to several career ops thrown into the mix, but those blasted skill ops necessary to finish the Guitar Star Challenge are few and far between. He’s only had 4 and his Adult birthday is a week away.

I’ll cap off this update with Sporty achieving her immortality and her file below closing for good. Way to go, Sporty!

A Very Sound Investment

Sound put the wraps on 2 more Ambrosia requirements—his 6 unique Best Friends and the 2 investments. I had to go with an all art theme with his 2 investments, so he purchased Wilsonoff Community Theatre for the Building and Sunset Institute of Modern Art for his property.

Okay, time for a serious question — how many of you have ever been on the roof of an art museum? Don’t answer because I already know...no one! That’s right. Unless you just happen to be a security guard at an art museum or a roofing contractor who specializes in art museums, you have not been on the roof of an art museum. Call me Miss Cleo but I know this for a fact. And why is this? There’s no art. And what a terrible waste of space. Well, what if you walked into a museum and at the end of your tour, the head curator rushed at you like a madman and said, “Wait...wait!!! There’s more!!! Don’t leave yet. I’m taking you and your family up to the roof!” You’d be overcome with excitement and wonder and that’s exactly the feeling that Sound wanted to give the good residents of Sunset Valley...



Sound: “This property has already been fully upgraded!”

Museum roof got pretty crowded now, good work Sound, even if choosing a wife blinded by her look, well, wasn't so sound when running to finish dynasty. I can't figure out how did you get so many Sim weeks. I know Recipe had 2 wives and all, but still, I'm on week 21 and generation 6 is toddler. My museum value is not going to be the best.

Wow, Metro.  You're moving through this really fast!  That's funny a real shame about Sound's wife.  Would you mind posting a close up of grown up Sound?  I'd like to get a good look at his face.  Does he have the Landgraab eyes like the rest of the family?

P. 37 is pretty close — his YA age up photo. He does seem to have those crescent shaped Landraab eyes, just not quite to the extent as Jamila and Queenie.

Conflicting Sound Waves

Meet Chanda McKay, mother of Man Dynasty generation #7. Haha. At least that’s the plan. She’s quite an elegant looking young woman—ala Morgana Wolff. Sound popped over to the high school one day at 2 PM (as per Recipe’s recommendations) to inspect the student body. When Chanda walked out Sound was really floored by her beauty. While playing for tips in Central Park I was flipping through Sound’s Relationship tab and noticed that Chanda had aged up to Young Adult because of the 5th trait. He invited her to Central Park for some quality time. Now, now...take it easy, ladies...Sound is quite faithful to Maria. All Sound has done is ask Chanda her sign and if she’s single. No more. But, the time will come when Sound needs to advance and pursue another wife, so a little reconnaissance work was in order. Hey, check out the killer art museum roof!



Isaiah Man, loving TV watching husband to Sporty, and TV watching father to Sound, passed at 89 days. Everyone was watching their favorite show too, “Waiting for Grim.” You may be asking yourself, “Why is everyone but Recipe crying?” First, let me say from personal experience that it’s not enjoyable to have someone’s fists pass directly through your chest cavity. But, the real reason Recipe is not crying is because he does not watch much TV with everyone else — he’s typically sculpting or painting his pixelated brains out in the studio. It’s very likely that Isaiah and Recipe were only acquaintances. Everyone else is Best Friends with each other because of the TV socialization. R.I.P. Isaiah Man.

  


Sound: “Oh, no! Dad, please don’t go...(wait...space needs to be made for me to marry again and bring in generation #7)...YESSSS! Great! See ya later, pops!”

It was quite an emotional rollercoaster for Sound in a short span of time. 2 days after Isaiah passed away, Sound achieved his LTW (Rock Star) by maxing the Music Career. So, despite the fact that he was still nursing the tail end of his -50 mourning moodlet, Sound pulled out all the stops and hit a home run for the team by locking up 2 more Ambrosia requirements.

Wow — wouldn't that be something? I can't wait to check out her family tree. But, Morgana begins in a fresh neighborhood, so she's the same vintage as Nancy Landgraab. So, we're talking 6 generations back? Not sure. It would be a miracle if Chanda were related to Morgana, but you never know.

Unlikely, but possible.  My Dynasty family has ties to the original Wolff family.  They went 4 generations on their own until they died off, except for my own family.  My generation 8 Sim is also a 7th generation Wolff.

Wow. So that means his daddy is a Wolff. Man, I really need to re-read the Dreamweavers! That's a big clue for who his daddy is!!  ;D

EDIT: Oh man. I thought I had solved it, but he's a Wolff from Mario, Banana's hubby.  :(

Sound and Chanda Play the Waiting Game

I’m starting to feel better about the prospect of having Sound actually complete the Guitar Star Challenge. If he doesn’t complete it, obviously that means game over, no Ambrosia, Elvis has left the building. But, Sound is shown below coming out of the bookstore after completing his 7th Guitar skill op — Sorting the Section. Actually, it’s the 3rd time he’s done that particular op. And he still is a day away from his Adult age up, so things look pretty good for the SuperMax requirement. Only 3 more skill ops to go.



Sound lovingly embraces his beautiful Maria. There’s not much time left for tender moments like these. Maria sits at 85 days. Will the clock run out at 90 days? 100 days? The sooner the better...errr...I mean, I’ll be sad when she goes (sniff, sniff).

  




Recipe: “Hi guys. Oh, Sound...I almost forgot...Someone named Chanda called for you while you were at work. Well, I’ll see you guys around the house.”



“Blast! That stupid toilet is still clogged up. And Crazy is the only one with Handiness skill.”



“Knock. Knock. Here’s the Crazy plumber to fix that clogged up toilet. I’ll go do that right now...RAARRRGGGHHHH...that woman in the painting says don’t do it!”


Mission Accomplished! Yep...everything’s back to normal.



Time for Sound to age up to Adult. I thought it was nice that Chanda happened to be in the area and stopped by for Sound’s birthday party.




Recipe: “Hooray for Sound! WOOT! (How many more times am I going to be photographed swinging this noisemaker?) 3 Cheers for Sound!”

Now, a lot of you may think you have me pegged. “Oh, Metro is so predictable...the next thing he’s going to do is have Maria and Chanda get into a big fight.” Folks, the honest truth is that what happened next surprised even me...



Maria: “Isn’t he just dreeeeeeamy?”
Chanda: (squeals) “YES!”
Maria: “You’re so lucky.”
Chanda: “No, you’re so lucky.”
Maria: “No, really, you’re the lucky one. You know what? I think that...”
Chanda and Maria: (giddy) “WE’RE BOTH SO LUCKY!”



Chanda: “Is he still there?”
Maria: (squeals) “YES!”
Chanda (very serious...like Oprah): “How much longer do you have, Maria?”
Maria: “It could be any day now. I’m 86.”
Chanda: “Awwww. Now, I’m so sad.”
Maria: “No, don’t you dare cry on me, girlfriend, because you KNOW I’ll start crying too!”
Chanda and Maria: “GROUP HUG!”

Goodbye Maria — It’s Been a Great 3 Weeks

Tired of seeing boring photos of Sound walking out from a completed Guitar skill opportunity? Me too! So, here he is completing his 9th Guitar skill op — another Sorting the Section one at the bookstore. Fixing the broken Guitar Star Challenge for EA is clearly on the level of difficulty as something like achieving world peace or completely reversing global warming.



So close to achieving Guitar Star...so close. It would be quite an accomplishment under the parameters of this Dynasty Challenge. Just one more skill op...YES! While playing for tips in Central Park Sound gets the all-important call and it turns out to be a Raise the Fun(d) opportunity at Hogan’s Deep Fried Diner.
 


But, all is not well in the Man Dynasty. At the same time that Sound received his opportunity that would seal his victory over the Guitar Star Challenge, the camera auto-panned back to Manly Estates. I knew what it was. :( The cable went out again. No, Maria got her inevitable visit from Grim. She was exactly 90 days old. Grim's hard to make out because he blends in with the TV on the right. As usual, Recipe looks very confused. But, give up some props to Recipe for lightening the mood a bit with a nice panoramic photo of Sound and Chanda dancing.
 


So, I could have had Sound rush home to see his wife’s ghost, but instead I opted for him to immediately go to Hogan’s Deep Fried Diner to complete the opportunity. It was the hardest decision I’ve ever made in my 20 years of computer gaming. Yeah. Are you kidding me?

So, just one week into his Adult stage, Sound walked out of the Diner a Guitar Star. He’s completed all necessary Ambrosia requirements with the exception of the Elder portrait which Recipe will take care of in due time. It was a bittersweet moment for Sound though. He wished Maria could have been part of the family longer. He’ll always remember her. Maybe he’ll put that musical genius to good use and write a memorable song about her. Or maybe he won’t. He’ll do one of the two I’m sure. So, it was back to Manly Estates for Sound. He had some serious mourning to do that night. But, tomorrow the sun will rise and there's promise of new love and new happiness spelled C-H-A-N-D-A.

All caught up with the Man's!  I guffawed loudly on several occasions forcing my husband to shout out, "Hey, what's so funny?  And would you stop, you're gonna wake up the girls!"
