I love how you always catch them with their hands on their hips at birthday time. When my sims do that I think "Ooo, the Malley pose."

Orchid and Sid's wedding was gorgeous and hasn't Viridian aged up well!

I was pretty happy with how both kids turned out. Non pudding faces for both  ;D

I love her cross eyes on the last picture.  :D

The crossed eyes shots are always good for a laugh  ;)

Lol! I have my own pose  ;D

I disappear one month and I have a lot of chapters to read in your dynasties  ;D (and no chapter to post in my IDC)

Orchid (love her name) is beautiful which is expected knowing who her mother is.

Lanya had very interesting genetics and strong ones at that, which you should see soon  ;)



Chapter 85- Lucky Thirteen

My parents weren't the only ones celebrating a birthday. Sidd and I also had our adult birthdays.





I thought you were supposed to gain wisdom and knowledge as you grew older, not lose your hair...









It really didn't make that much of a difference to me, though, because all I needed was one more promotion and then Sidd and I could start our family. The moment I reached the top of my career, I rushed home to "share the good news" with my husband  ;)









Orchid's Photographs:





The Thirteenth Heir

Name: Orchid Sakura
Born: Week 66, Day 5
Traits: Artistic, Excitable, Lucky, Rebellious, Hopeless Romantic, Avant Garde* (*Rebel Influence)
Unique Maxed Job: Art Appraiser (Acquisition Branch)
Two Best Friends: Tessa Stanford, Maria Best
Three Skill Challenges: Master Muralist, Precision Sprayer, Always Wanted
Four Opportunities: Commissioned Street Art, Side Job Delivery, Better Photographs, Al Simhara
Items Added to Collection: Photographs
Career Reward: Acquired Paintings

Lifetime Wish: Street Credible
Favorite Color: Spice Brown
Spouse: Siddhartha Best



I was about to head off to work the next day when I realized something pretty awesome: I was pregnant!



Sidd had just come home, so I immediately told him the good news.



Don't be fooled by the thumbs up; Sidd was stoked.



I was totally stoked too. At least I was until the labor pains hit.







But it was completely worth all of it when I saw my little man for the first time.



Sidd and I named our little man Pewter, who was a Genius who Hates the Outdoors. I wanted to make sure that I was going to be around for quite a while to see my little guy grow up, so I took one of my bro's young again potions to ensure that.



Sidd did the same thing.



Pewter was treated like royalty. He got everything he wanted and was waited on hand and foot.



Soon enough, it was time for Pewter to become a toddler. Though he would be able to do more for himself, I highly doubt that everyone was going to stop spoiling him rotten.







And the spoiling was totally justified when we all saw his sweet little face. Mom was especially enamored because Pewter looked like a miniature version of her (and me too!).

I really liked Lanya's genetics. It was great to see them stay around for more than one generation.

Congrats on a 29 generations!  ;D

When you put it in that context, boy, that is a lot of generations!!



Chapter 86- Little Man

Sidd and Pewter were partners in crime. They were always together, when Sidd wasn't at the studio working toward his rockstardom.







Viridian knew that he was going to need to be around for a while to help Pewter and the last two descendants when Sidd and I were no longer able to do so. So, he took some precautions to make sure that he was going to be kickin' for some time yet.



It seemed painful...



I didn't want to think of any of that yet. Right now, I just wanted to enjoy all of my time with my little man.











He gets his knack for music from his father, of course.



But it's been a while since I last saw Sidd attempt to eat his drumsticks...







In addition to all of his other duties, Viridian had also been hard at work at completing his own lifetime wish. Late one night, he did it.



Sidd and I agreed to let Viridian take his nephew up to the cake as a special reward from us for completing his life's dream.





I used to always roll my eyes when Mom and Dad would say that Viridian and I grew up so fast. Now I knew what they meant. My little man...



Pewter became a Computer Whiz this birthday.



He also got an updated bedroom, much better suited for a future scientific genius.



Pewter immediately went over to Viridian and asked him for tutoring. He wanted to get good grades before starting school the next day, especially for his science classes.



As more of an art student myself, I found Pewter's interest in science, well, interesting.



But, hey, what made my little man happy made me happy.

I just caught up :) and Pewter is sweet, with Lanya's genes being realy strong.

Orchid has the same hair as Willow, seeing it makes me miss her a lot :(

He does turn out quite handsome, I have to say  ;)

Welcome aboard! Willow will make another appearance at the end and she will get a happy ending  ;)

Pewter is such a serious child. Blink and he'll be a teen.

Pretty much. Pewter becomes a teen this chapter, actually.

I seem to be weirdly fixated on Viridian... there's just something rather gorgeous about that sim.

I think it's the fact that he is not a pudding face, but his genetics are not as strong as Orchid's or Lanya's.



Chapter 87- Only Yesterday...

Dad returned from work one night when he realized that it was time for his elder birthday. He was oddly excited to be going grey.







After some much needed hair dye and a makeover, Dad found a way to make old age work for him.





Pewter was more than happy to let Dad impart his grandfatherly wisdom on him. They were really close, which was wonderful to see.



While they were studying together, Mom was having her elder birthday too. She had been working on her latest novel when the sparkles hit.





Mom and Dad certainly make elderhood rock. I hope I can do it justice when I get there too.





After a quick celebration, Pewter and Dad were back to goofing off.





While Dad may have been Pewter's best friend, once he started school, he quickly developed a friendship with another student. Her name was Rita Lu and she seemed pretty psyched to be my little man's best friend.



Of course, when Pewter had his teen birthday, Rita was one of the first people that he invited to the party.







I quickly figured out why he wanted his best friend there.



Pewter and Rita made their relationship official before my little man went to update his outfit to reflect his new teenage status.



He gained the Workaholic trait.



Pewter was really looking forward to the fact that he could finally start working on the science skill now that he was a teenager. In fact, that's where he spent the remainder of his birthday, in front of the science skill machine thing.



Viridian gave Pewter all of the plants and gems that he had been collecting so that Pewter could analyze them. He got right to work on that.



I knew that Pewter was going to be occupied for a while with his new toy, so I was able to take a call from Sidd. He was super stoked, telling me that he was officially promoted to rockstar! How awesome is that?!



We had a family celebration before Viridian and Pewter went back to their sciencing-is that a word? Well, it is now. Anyway, Viridian started fishing so that Pewter could examine them.



Pewter wasn't all about the science skill though. He did take a break once in a while to hang out with his second favorite thing: Rita.





It seems like only yesterday that Sidd and I were the same way...

Ah, Rita Lu. She and my latest RTJ spare had an active case of dislike. Apparently it was his fault. She seems great in your game.

I remember Rita only in that she was being stubborn over being a romantic interest for a Life States Dynasty heir. Glad to see that she's more willing for someone else, though.

Does anyone else automatically finish off "Sidd" with "Vicious"? Or is that just my weird musical taste lol I've actually been meaning to ask for a while now but it just struck me now that our Sidd here is a rockstar just like the other one in RL...

I love this story and can't wait for more...

It seems that the later generations are getting to meet their grandchildren a lot more frequently than the earlier ones, I wonder if any will meet their great grandchildren, or if that would be a stretch, given the shortened life span

Lanya looks good in elderhood, the best part is that she doesn't have the patato nose like most elders.

Rita was a good spouse. She and Pewter actually really liked each other, which is helpful when it's essentially an arranged marriage. The only issue was her genetics...her eyes were kind of buggy. I had to break my rule of not interfering with genetics and give her plastic surgery because of it. They were the only thing I touched and I was pretty pleased with the results.

It seems that the later generations are getting to meet their grandchildren a lot more frequently than the earlier ones, I wonder if any will meet their great grandchildren, or if that would be a stretch, given the shortened life span

It's sad to say that Phoenix and Lanya meeting their great grandkids would be a stretch  :'(

Lanya looks good in elderhood, the best part is that she doesn't have the patato nose like most elders.

Lanya was one of the lucky ones in that respect!



Chapter 88- If Only for a Moment

Pewter had been getting in some last minute science experiments when the limo pulled up to take Rita and him to prom.



I think he was pretty excited.



Rita and Pewter had a wonderful time at prom. They were named prom queen and king, respectively, and were considered to be the cutest couple at the dance. Well, of course they were! Anyone who couldn't see that mustn't be worth associating with then.

Prom was the last big event before Pewter was set to age up in a young adult. Again, he was pretty happy for that too.









Well, my little man isn't so little anymore...



For his last trait, Pewter became a Virtuoso. He so takes after Sidd in that respect.



It still hasn't hit me that I was done with my heirship. But, that means more time for street art and rocking out with my hubby.

Peace out,

Orchid Sakura



Greetings, all. My name is Pewter and I am the 14th heir in a long line of heirs. I am a scientist by trade and dearly wanted to become a scientist, but my Grandfather Phoenix informed me that one of my ancestors was a scientist, therefore I needed to find another passion. I thought long and hard about that and discovered that, like my parents, I had a fondness for the arts. Specifically, I enjoyed the science behind music. There was actually a great deal of logic involved with music, so it was a great way to combine two of the things I loved most.

Another thing I simply adored was not actually a thing, but rather, a person. My dear girlfriend, Rita, had also aged up into a beautiful young lady. After my birthday, I contacted Rita and asked her to move in with my family.



Rita was an Angler, Bookworm, Family Oriented, Natural Cook and had a Good Sense of Humor. She decided that she wanted to become a Culinary Librarian.



Rita and I were quite happy to finally be together.





I assured her that I did not want to be with any other woman and asked Rita to become my wife.







While Rita and I would have appreciated some time to get a good start in our respective careers, we knew that time was of the essence because Grandfather Phoenix and Grandmother Lanya may not be around for much longer. We agreed to have our marriage ceremony that evening.





It turned out to be an ingenious move because Rita and I were gifted with several days off to begin honing our skills for our careers.



It was only a day or two into our honeymoon when Rita and I realized that we did the right thing by having our marriage be on the same evening that Rita moved in with us.





RIP Phoenix Sakura, aged 56.

Everyone was utterly heartbroken. Grandmother didn't know what to do without Grandmother. Uncle Viridian did his best to console her.



It soon became clear to all of us that Grandmother could not bear to be apart from Grandfather, even if it was only for a moment.





Though it hurt deeply, Grandmother was willing to leave with Grim so that she could be reunited with her darling Grandfather.

RIP Lanya Avilla Sakura, aged 56





Thank you for all you have done for us, Grandfather and Grandmother. We will all miss you.

Does plastic surgery come with Pets? I don't have that EP, which is probably just as well. I would find it too tempting.

I'm not entirely sure which EP it comes from. I have everything installed except for seasons because that was the EP that I'm pretty sure destroyed my first immortal dynasty attempt, so I don't know for sure.

R.I.P. Phoenix and Lanya, they were a cute couple.  :(

:( :'( R.I.P Phoenix and Lanya

It is very bittersweet when something like that happens because it shows how much they really loved each other  :'(



Chapter 89- Growing Older

While it was not easy, we were all eventually able to move past Grandmother and Grandfather's passing. We all threw ourselves into our work, and I focused on my requirements. I received an opportunity to improve my piano skill, which I accepted immediately.



We also had a celebration for Father and Mother's elder birthdays.







While Father enjoyed his work immensely, he decided to retire from the limelight. He said that, when Rita and I had children, he wanted to spend most of the time with his grandchild.



Though he may now be a retired rockstar, Father still looks quite good.





Mother aged up right after Father.







Like Father, Mother still looks rather good for her age. I hope their genes passed on to me in that respect...





Things settled down for a bit after my parents' birthdays. Rita and I continued working toward our goals and, late one evening, Rita managed to complete her lifetime wish.



I was so proud of her. I wrote a special song for her on the piano and played it for her that same night.









Grandmother Lanya must have enjoyed the music, as she made her first appearance shortly after I finished serenading my lovely wife.



Rita's birthday, as well as mine, was not far behind my parents. We were both going to be entering full adulthood.







Rita aged up shortly after returning from work that evening.







After Rita and I sorted out our respective hairstyles, we heard cheering from Uncle Viridian. I asked him what was going on and he happily mentioned that he reached the top of the painter career. That was quite an achievement and a well deserved one at that.
