Wow, Nathan looks great! I had Young Again Potion bugs with my first 4x4, so I'm going to try to forgo any life extension, save the occasional tattoo. Things are moving along so quickly.

Wow, KRae! You're going without any life extensions? That's awesome. More power to you  ;D

Wow Nathan is really handsome! I love his eyes, they stand against his skin and hair color.

Plus, his skin color and eye color combo is the same colors for my favorite sports team  :)

I'm still only half way through, but I just wanted to jump forward and let you know I'm reading!  :) I'll get caught up soon, it's a lot of fun to read.  :)

*edited: Caught up! Wow! Dragon Valley is my all time fav town. I just have to say I loved all the Bridgeport heirs, I think Kenai was a gorgeous looking sim, those eyes! Forest from Hidden Springs was very fine too.



Welcome aboard, Playalot! Glad to have you  ;D



Chapter 62- Stars in Egypt

Starling was doing really good with her painting skill, so she decided that it was time to begin working on the photography skill too. She called up the travel agency and booked a trip for herself to the home of photography, Al Simhara.



Nathan and I stayed home to work on our skills and requirements, respectively, so Starling went off on vacation herself. Thankfully, since she was going for photography, she was able to bring home quite a few nice pictures of her adventures.





Starling also decided to try her hand at some exploring. Some of the pictures she got were just amazing. If her expression was any indication, it must have been unbelievable to see it in person.







Back at home, I was continuing to mix up some more potions. I needed to mix hundreds of potions for one of my skill challenges. 149 left to go...







I put my alchemy on hold for a very special occasion. Nathan and I set up our wedding day for that weekend.





Nathan and I exchanged vows and then we went to celebrate our wedding night...by me throwing potions at everyone for my lifetime wish and skill challenge.





No one was safe from my potions of happiness!



I finished my lifetime wish and my skill challenge by chucking one last potion at my new husband. Thankfully, he knew what he was getting into when we first got together.





On the subject of completing lifetime wishes, Dad wanted to be a Jack of All Trades. He had gone through several jobs and finally completed his last one. The woman behind him seemed pretty excited about Dad's accomplishment too.



Not surprisingly, time moved pretty quickly in our household. Nathan had his adult birthday.





Nathan was a day older than I was, so, after his birthday celebration, we headed to bed for the night. Unfortunately, we were interrupted by an unwelcome visitor.



The cop who came to apprehend the burglar got her butt kicked, so Nathan decided to take matters into his own hands...with a slap fest.



Thankfully, it was time for my adult birthday so I could kind of hide my shame behind the sparkles.





My twin sister also had her adult birthday. She was working at her easel when the sparkles hit.





I didn't have much left to do on my requirements, so hopefully I could finish them up soon and Nathan and I could start our family while Mom and Dad were still around.

Why, oh, why do I find myself falling I love with your spares? Starling is so unique looking, ageing up in her underwear had me giggling uncontrollably. I'm envious of her black skirt.

Such a great story and such great looking sims.

Starling in particular is lovely, although I must admit to loving blue sims, like Nathan.

Glad you're enjoying the story, Tixxis  ;D

Why, oh, why do I find myself falling I love with your spares? Starling is so unique looking, ageing up in her underwear had me giggling uncontrollably. I'm envious of her black skirt.

You'll be happy to know that all of the spares get a happy ending  ;)

Starling has such a wonderfully expressive face.

I absolutely love the "awe" face on sims when they enter a tomb or something. It's priceless.

Such a great story and such great looking sims.

Starling in particular is lovely, although I must admit to loving blue sims, like Nathan.

Well, you'll be happy to know that there are more rainboos in store  ;)

I'm a Nathan fan from way back, I love that he's a spouse in your story.  :)

I had my fingers crossed that the pregnant lady that Rain came across would have a boy so that he could be a spouse. I love original townie genes.



Chapter 63- Just Like Daddy

I was nearly done with all of my requirements except for a few things. So, in my free time, I decided to play around with the bar that was in the living room. It was completely stocked since no one really used it very often so it was something to keep me occupied.



This was going to take some serious practice, though.



Starling, meanwhile, was keeping herself busy with her own hobbies. She had already maxed the photography skill and was now working on her last few paintings for her painting skill. I was so proud of my sister when she completed her lifetime wish.





Starling knew that she was going to need to be around for a long time, so she took some steps to make sure that she was going to be here to help my child, my grandchild, and so on and so forth.



It was a good thing because Mom and Dad were starting to get up there in age, sad to say.



They weren't elders quite yet, but it was bound to happen eventually. I knew that it was a part of my requirements, but I was really reluctant to see that part completed.









A short time later, I got my final promotion at work. With that, I completed my career and my requirements all at the same time. Everyone was so excited, even the paparazzi was present to capture the moment.



I rushed home to tell Nathan the good news and we quickly headed upstairs to celebrate my accomplishment.







The Ninth Heir

Name: Soleil Sakura
Born: Week 46, Day 4
Traits: Genius, Hates the Outdoors, Supernatural Fan, Lucky, Schmoozer
Unique Maxed Job: Business
Two Best Friends: Lara Eames, Buck O'Rielly
Three Skill Challenges: Master Alchemist, Excellent Elixirs, Alchemists Anonymous
Four Opportunities: Business Model, The Wright Opinion, Oh and Bring Gifts, Making Nice with the Newsies
Items Added to Collection: Elixirs
Career Reward: Skill Certificate

Lifetime Wish: Alchemy Artisan
Favorite Color: Green
Spouse: Nathan Mithrilen



Now that we were going to have a family, Nathan took a young again potion to ensure that he would be around for quite some time too. He wanted to make sure that he would get to be there to help take care of his son or daughter, especially since his elder birthday was a short time away.





I, on the other hand, was taking it easy. I wasn't feeling that well and needed frequent trips to the restroom.



But the reason behind my sickness was the best reason ever.



I told Nathan and he was shocked. He and I had been looking forward to having a family for quite some time now that it seemed sort of surreal now that it was time.







Mom and Dad were looking forward to becoming grandparents, too.



Of course, they didn't get off to the best start. You'd think that Mom and dad would know what to do when someone was in labor and not panic. Apparently not.



Nathan managed to whisk me away from the chaos and off to the hospital.



A while later, Nathan and I were the proud parents of a beautiful little boy. We named him Apollo. He was Friendly and Easily Impressed.



Now that there was a new bundle of joy in the household, we needed to build a new room for the little one.



We were all looking forward to seeing who Apollo looked like when he grew up, though I figured he would probably look a great deal like his daddy, which was not a bad thing at all.

The Dragon Valley genetics were pretty cool. I especially like the next generation's genetics.

Aw, welcome, little sweet pea.

Congrats Soliel and welcome little Apollo =D

I liked Apollo a lot. He was a pretty cool heir.



Chapter 64- The Little Star

Mom and Dad were so thrilled that they were able to meet and spend time with their grandson.



Pretty soon, it was time for Apollo to age up into a toddler. I bet Starling that Apollo was going to look exactly like Nathan.







I was right; Apollo looked just like his father.



I was still off on maternity leave so I wanted to get some time working with my son on his toddler skills before the rest of the family would have to take over.





Apollo was such a smart little boy. We were chasing him throughout the house in no time.



One thing that Apollo really excelled at was talking. He was such a friendly and happy little boy. He would surely make a great politician or actor someday.







My little boy also did have a bit of a flair for the dramatic, which could be extremely adorable.





Apollo also received some little doll from some relative. Nathan didn't know who that relative was and neither did I. We both figured that it came from one of my ancestors from Hidden Springs or Bridgeport or something.



Soon enough, it was time for Apollo to grow up again. I still couldn't believe that he was going to be a child already.



Dad brought him up to the cake this time.









Apollo told us before running off to change his clothes that he wasn't the only one that aged up that day. We weren't entirely sure what he meant by that, however.





Nathan and I updated Apollo's room while he was changing into his new big boy clothes.



Here is little Apollo.



He gained the Good Sense of Humor trait. That wasn't very surprising because Apollo never failed to make us all smile.

'Tis a good question  ;)



Chapter 65- A Special Gift

Starling went to find Apollo after he finished updating his wardrobe. Since she was very good with the logic skill, she wanted to tutor Apollo before he began school the next day.



Downstairs, we weren't done with birthdays. Unfortunately, it was time for Mom's elder birthday.







It was time for Dad to age up into an elder as well.







Here is Mom as an elder.



I think she still looks quite distinguished and lovely.



Here is Dad.



He also looks really good for an elder too. I just hope that Nathan and I can look that good when we reach elderhood.



As soon as he reached his old age, Dad wanted to retire. He had tried his hand at several different careers and now just wanted to enjoy some time with his grandson before his time was up. Wow, that sounded morbid.



Even though he had an A in school, Apollo always was willing to take help from his grandpa on his homework.



Once he was done with his homework, Apollo went off in search of his Aunty Starling, who wanted to see him for something. She told him that she had a special gift for him, which he could use if he wanted to in the future.



Apollo didn't have much time to think it over, though, because it was time for my adult birthday.





Nathan also had his.







After all of the celebrations died down, Apollo had a long talk with Aunty Starling about the potion. I wonder what he decided...

Oh, that mad scientist hair.

Oh, yes, nothing beats that mad scientist hair. At least it sort of works on Nathan. On Rain, not so much  :o

"I wonder what he decided..." How naughty!

I'm terrible  ;)

No, I don't want to see Rain go  :'( Birthday wishes all around. Can't wait to see if Apollo uses the potion or not.

I know! Rain was one awesome heir.



Chapter 66- Shipping

Time sure flies when your life span has been diminished by Grim. Soon enough, it was time for Apollo's teen birthday.



He was really looking forward to this birthday for several reasons. Apollo was excited about getting started on his skill challenges and also because he told me that he had made his decision about what he was going to do with the potion that Starling had given him a short time ago.







We all watched with curiosity as Apollo handed the potion to his mysterious friend. I know that Mom told Starling and me some stories about her ancestors that were passed down to her, including about how we have Imaginary Friend blood in our veins. Perhaps this is how it started?





Suddenly, we had a new member in the household.



We all introduced ourselves to our new family member while Apollo updated his teen outfit.



He gained the Charismatic trait.



Here is Juniper, Apollo's imaginary friend.



She had gorgeous blue eyes and a lovely shade of green hair. Juniper's traits are Vegetarian, Animal Lover, Mooch, and Computer Whiz.



Once Juniper and Apollo were situated with their new teen status, they were tutored so that they would be ready for their first day of high school the following day.



Starling worked with Apollo while Dad worked with Juniper.



After getting his fabulous grades back up to their usual fabulousness, Apollo headed upstairs to begin working on his charisma skill. He always had a knack for being the center of attention and finally being able to hone his skills would only help in the future.







Juniper came upstairs to see what Apollo was up to. He surprised her by doing something he was finally able to do now that she was a real sim.





They then decided to make their relationship official by becoming boyfriend and girlfriend.





How cute!



FYI, Juniper is the name of a character in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies. She has a huge crush on one of the lawyers in the game, Apollo. I ship them (which means support, if you don't speak fanfiction lingo  ;)) so that was the perfect name for his spouse, even though it goes against the name theme for this region.
