This is Miles; he's friendly and loves the outdoors (sure, I couldn't have gotten that last gen, could I).  Definitely front-runner for heir.

Harmon is grumpy and absent minded.   However I'll still try to complete requirements for him just in case Miles ends up with commitment issues or something.

He's getting a good start...

But I don't think he was quite ready for this. 

And his brother didn't take it much better.

Niall: And son, once you've mastered this 'walking' thing, I can teach you how to float really slowly.  Won't that be fun?

No rest for a dynasty heir.  At least not when there's a chance to age them up early.

But Harmon still discovers the fun part of being a werewolf,

While Miles practices walking through walls.

The boys rest up for an early birthday, unaware of what's going on in the next room.

Niall: Unbelievable! I just don't even want to look at you right now.

Luna: But... I thought you loved me.

Luna: I know I never want to go skinny dipping with you because it's all outside and stuff, but I guess we could sometime.

Niall: No!  Just give me some space!

And while they manage to keep things together for the kids' sake, I got so distracted that I forgot to finish teaching Miles to walk.  He picked up the clumsy trait.

And Harmon rolled star quality.

Yeah, I wasn't surprised to see things go downhill between Luna and Niall, what with their hot-headed and mean-spirited traits.  I picked him for this generation's spouse specifically because I wouldn't have room for him for long anyway.  Looks like I chose well.

Well, the boys were best friends with their parents but barely acquaintances with each other, so it was time to do something about that.

A ghost telling a ghost story?  Oh, sims, what will you think of next.

The boys had to take turns getting tutored by dad,

 giving them both a little time to enjoy their childhood.  Although I wouldn't recommend eating that.

Ugh, I don't feel so good...

Yeah, probably had something to do with that hotdog with STINK LINES coming off it.

Might be safer to keep Miles at home.

Can't keep him away from those spring riders, anyway.

First full moon.

My goodness, Harmon, that fish is almost as big as you are!

And while Luna and Niall try to patch things up,

he's a volatile presence in the household.

and the bad vibes are rubbing off on the youngest generation.

It'll be best to move him out as quickly as possible.

And since Miles got his 'A' grade first, I'm going to declare him heir and age both boys up.

While I totally failed to get teen CAS shots, I can tell you that Miles got the over-emotional trait.  Oh, good traits, I've missed you so...

Upon aging up, Miles went straight for the Multi-Tab I put in his pocket.

Not everyone was happy about that.

I can't believe you're just sitting there goofing off!  That machine is supposed to be for homework and skilling!  Do you know what your mother and I have gone through for this dynasty?  Now sit down so I can tutor you!

Man, why does dad need to be so tough on me?

I'm sorry, it's those nasty traits of his.

Well, at least I can relax and practice my mixology here at Party Central.

Wow, you built yourself a nightclub?  But what happened to everyone that used to sleep in this part of the house?

Ohhh, you locked them in the basement.  Nice.

I can't just focus on juice, though.  Gotta have some fancy nectar on hand to.  Mom always taught me to appreciate the finer things in life.

Wow, that thing's loud!  I'm surprised you're not waking up your brother.

Despite falling on a work night, I wanted to send Miles to prom in hopes of grabbing a romantic interest there, but after the previous night's full moon interfered with his job performance I ended up sending Harmon alone.

Luckily there was a field trip to the mausoleum the next day, where I spotted the lovely Tamika Loyd stepping off the bus.

Miles, it's time for you to do what your family does best, follow her home and chuck this bottle of goo at her.

Okay, now it's wooing time.

But I have to go to work now.

You're right.  I just hope she doesn't age up overnight.

Miles: Oh, good, you're still a teen.  Have some flowers.

Tamika: Oh, Miles, these are beautiful.  I find myself interested in you... romantically.

Okay, Miles, time to dump her.

Can't we have a pillow fight first?

Eh, I don't see any reason why not.

Tamika: What?  You kiss me and pillow fight with me and then just throw me away like yesterday's autumn salad?  I'm...surprisingly not too torn up about it.  We should still be friends and stuff.

Well Miles, you certainly have a way with the ladies.

Ugh, I think I need a drink.

Not this one though, it's disgusting.

Don't worry, once you age up you'll have plenty of time to get that skill up.

Miles adds the Lucky trait to Friendly, Loves the Outdoors, Clumsy and Over-Emotional.  Wonderful traits there, Miles.  Not so good on the Lifetime Wish choices.  After much deliberation we'll go with Master of Mysticism.


Which you won't be so much as starting on til you finish your requirements

There's nothing quite like a life states dynasty for wonderful chaos. I've never tried one with ghosts before.

Finally it was time to get Niall out of the house, but first a special meal.

I... I am a being of flesh again. Oh, thank you, Watcher.

Yeah, now move out please, I need the house space.  Miles, why don't you go get that Philosopher's Stone out of storage.  We need to find you a wife.  Now I want you to look for Sophia Carol, that's S-O-P--

I know how to spell, Watcher.  But I don't know anything about this woman.  Is she cool?

I think so.  I heard she fought a dragon.

Did she win?

Well, she's a fire ghost, so...

Eh, she'll do.

Miles and Sophia head to graduation.

While Luna joins the rest of the family locked in the basement.  I did make sure she had a mirror to preen in though.

Miles gets to work on nectar making and by his second day of young adulthood he's already wishing to make nectar worth $250.  A very good sign.

He also tries his hand at moonlighting, but it's slow going,

so he decides to do his mixing at Party Central.

And what an eventful party it is.

It wouldn't be the only one though.  Sophia has a career oppurtunity to party with a stressed co-worker, so here he is.

And here's a party crashing elder demonstrating why I don't invite elders to parties, as a rule.

Sophia's friend certainly isn't dwelling on the tragedy, though.

In fact, he's making himself right at home.

Miles does some reading for a mixology opp while Sophia polishes off a plate of Autumn Salad, but soon it's time for another party.

A time for sims to suddenly appear in outfits that I certainly had nothing to do with.

That's right, it's bachelor party time (gotta trigger that marriage wish after all).

And those ladies would not stop dancing.  I ended up having to turn the stereo off.

Not that it helped.  It was time to bring in the big guns.

First you make sparkly hearts at my fiance, and then you stick around dancing in the dining room til 4 AM?  I don't think so missy.  Get out of my house.

I'd do it, Candy Bar.  You don't want to mess with an angry fire ghost.

Well, turns out that making 200 bottles of nectar takes a lot of fruit.

So I sent my two "hates the outdoors" sims outside for some tag team gardening.

Sophia's been progressing well in her medical career, reading her journal articles every night,

And keeping the public healthy.

The next weekend everyone headed to the park for the final wedding of the dynasty (sans marriage wish since apparently we don't wish to get married in this dynasty anymore...).

But wish or no wish, it went well.

The cake was tasty.

Although some people had to wait a bit too long for their piece.

Johnpaul: It's not a great party til someone pees themselves.

Harmon: Hey!  Who stole my fork?

Jordan: sigh.  Oh, David.

The newlyweds decided it was time to sneak off

For a little alone time.

But back at home Miles was hard at work mastering mixology for his final wish.

Miles: Sophia, I've done it!  I've finished all my requirements.

In record time, I might add.

Do you know what this means?

Sophia: Nooboo?

That's right, nooboo.

And here she is.  Leah is evil and neurotic, but more importantly, she's a fire ghost.  Enter Gen 7.

Who's Daddy's little fire-boo?  That's right, you are!

Leah had a happy and uneventful infanthood as an only child with only her parents to care for her.

And she soon aged up to a darling toddler.

My, that is going to be some lovely coloring once this dynasty is finished and she can get some ambrosia in her.

She builds a better friendship with her mother while learning her skills,

and makes a new friend, too.

Cora, you're going to make a wonderful evil minion someday.

(Sadly, Cora would never become an evil minion, since the doll disappeared when I tried to move it out of Leah's inventory.)

Meanwhile Sophia suddenly wished to learn the writing skill, so why not.

And Miles has been progressing in the fortune teller career.

So cute, you could almost forget she's pure evil.

Sophia: Fire.  That's how Mommy died, from a fire.

Leah: Yay! Fire!


As a child, Leah gained the Lucky trait.

And like her grandmother, she wants to be a princess.

I will rule my kingdom with an iron fist!

Okay, maybe not exactly like her grandmother.

Never forget that what I build,

I can also destroy!

Whoa, easy there Lizzie Borden.

Who's Lizzie Borden?

Nah, better you don't know, don't want to give you any ideas.

Leah wished to collect some scrap at 4 AM, so Sophia took her to the junkyard.  She brought along a birthday cake, too; no sense in waking the whole house up.

She became a Perfectionist, and I thought a steampunk look would befit a young inventor.

In her second day of "meeting new friends" at high school, she managed to encounter this generation's official babysitter.

Things seem to have gone well.  And you don't even have to break up with her, Leah.

I don't?  But just imagine how delightfully miserable she'll be!

One more day of school to hit honor roll, and it was birthday time again.

I wish... to be the Emperor of Evil.

Yeah, gonna have to wait a bit on that one.

Now, go and invent all the things.

It wasn't always smooth sailing for Leah at her workbench

Shower, now.

And back to work on those Hygeinators for the spa.

Hey, watcher, guess what?

I can blow things up now!  Hmm, much rather be blowing up other people's property, though.

Well, I hope you're happy now.

Inventing challenges are a lot more grindy than I'd realized.

Every day it's eat,

play online social games,

and then back to the workbench.

But in the end it's all worth it.  Meet Lindsey the simbot!

I let Penny out of the basement to help Leah work on her plumber challenge. (Although maybe we should have done this outside.)

And we were down to our last wish and challenge.

I can't believe you put a fireplace in my room.  Those things are dangerous!

Your house is fireproof, hon.  Besides, you've been spending your days in front of a poorly wired inventing bench, and you carry dynamite in your pocket.  I'm starting to thing the neurotic thing is just an act.

But how am I supposed to upgrade this?  It's not like there's moving parts or anything.

Just whack it with a hammer til you hear the jingle.  That's what everyone else does.

And guess what, since we're just killing time now waiting on the donation timer to let you finish undermining charity, you can join the criminal career!

YAY! Watcher, you're the best!

Also while waiting on the donation timer, Leah's high school sweetie finally aged up, so she invited her over.  They even have the same favorite food.  Clearly it was meant to be.

The spark is certainly still there.

And at last, after days of waiting out the clock, Leah makes her last donation toward the sad lives and painful deaths of sims everywhere.

Truly a cause for celebration.
