Thanks everyone for reading and commenting. I wanted to pop this screenshot in, even though Jasmine's now a teen. It didn't make my story but I just love this shot!
More chapters heading this way sometime soon...ish.

Chapter 44: Another House Member


Oh how lovely! Not only a masterpiece but beautiful as well. Let's keep this one Reagan.






Dude: Well, I think your new 'do' looks lovely!
Jasmine: Thanks dad, but you'd say that if I walked around in a sack.
Dude: Well, yes I would because it's what's inside that counts. It's just a bonus that you happen to be beautiful outside too darling.






Jasmine: I love you dad.
Dude: Love you too sweetheart.






Gosh! Another masterpiece! Woah, you're on a roll today!






How's the writing going Blaize?
Blaize: Slowly... I keep getting stuck...






Oh Zesty! Heck! I didn't even see you there. Blaize is stuck, maybe you could give him a few pointers?
Zest: Sure. Hmm, let's see...
Blaize: How did you not see Uncle Zest?
Umm.. the 'see through' thing... duh!






Three words... do, something, else.
Dude: Spoil sport.
..He says as he keels over and dies from over exertion.
Dude: OK, ok.






That is not really what I had in mind...
Dude: I'm doing something else.
Very funny... go sort the garden or something.






See, now this is nice. Safe, fun, helpful.
Dude: Boring.
Productive.
Dude: Never ending.
*sigh*






Jasmine: I've nearly completed my first song.
It sounds lovely. What are you going to call it?
Jasmine: A Whimsical Piece.
Oh!
Jasmine: You don't like that title?
Oh no, it's just, well... a little boring perhaps for such a lovely piece of music.






Dude: Hi gorgeous, how's your day been?
Regan: Very nice thank you husband.
Blaize: Umm, it's nice you guys love each other and all... but, you know, not in front of the impressionable kids eh.






Blaize: Oh yuk! That does it, I'm outta here.






Blaize: Just saving in case the manuscript goes AWOL.... done. You coming watcher?
Yep. Those two totally need a room.






Thomas: Hey Blaize, you're looking like the cat that got the cream!
Blaize: Hey! Yeah, I just posted away another manuscript to my editor.
Thomas: Good job!






Dude: Hi Thomas, you're just the guy I've been looking for.
Thomas: Hey Dude. Really? Why?






Hi Mackenzie, how was school?
Mac: Good watcher. Hector and I are going to practice our awesome chess moves.
Nice.






Blaize: So you going to tell me what all that secret hush-hush talk was all about between you and Thomas?
Dude: Maybe later son.
Jasmine: I'm not sure I want to know. Generally when you start planning dad it ends up embarrassing.







Dude: Hmm... you've got a point I guess Jasmine, sometimes things just need doing for the sake of the dynasty.
Blaize: Now I'm really curious!
Jasmine: Now I'm totally not!






Jasmine: So it's the weekend dad, what are we going to do? More fishing?
Dude: Probably not this weekend. I think Blaize, Thomas and I might go visiting some of our neighbours for a while.
Blaize: Oh cool, that sounds fun.





Blaize: By the way, did you know that there is a new spin-off show based on Star trek showing on channel !#*%&$@% ?
Dude: No way! How crazy would that be?
Blaize: I know, right.






Dude: No offence son, but you just can't have an alien actor playing a Star Trek captain. It just wouldn't be believable!
Blaize: Well, I wouldn't go as far as to say that dad...






Some time later when the Star Trek debate had finally worn itself out...

Whatcha making?
Dude: A potent flirty serum to help Thomas do his job.
Huh? <Mentally repeats to self 'a potent flirty serum.....his job??'>






Umm...Sooo are you sure that Thomas actually understands what we need him to do Dude?
Dude: No. That's why you're going to go through and have a talk with him.
No way! I'm not saying all that out loud... I hardly know the sim.
Dude: Your dynasty. You do the difficult talks.
*Grimace* You suck.
Dude: <Snort>







Thomas: Thanks for the new outfit watcher.
No problem. So, you ready for a big weekend?
Thomas: Sure. So what am I doing again exactly?
Umm... err...meeting a lot of new, pretty lady sims and err... ummm... <mumble mumble>
Thomas: Pardon?
Err... and making noboos.... <Madly blushing>

Chapter 45: Just Hanging In The Weekend


Did you have a nice swim?
Mackenzie: Sure did. We could do with a few more pool lights though. I got a bit creeped out round the side where it's a bit dark.
Oh! Right, I'll get that sorted.
Mackenzie: Thanks watcher.






Dude: Wanna play?
Mac: No offence dad, but how about you give me some tips instead of a crushing defeat that will stuff up my self-esteem for the entire weekend?
Dude: lol, k, then, pointers it is.






Blaize: You really don't want to play me?
Mac: Nope.
Blaize: How come? We always play chess on Friday nights.
Mac: Dad's actually mentoring me so I just want to soak it all in really.
Blaize: K. I guess.






Mac: You know when you glow like that I can see straight through your disguise.
Blaize: I know, I haven't figured out how to stop that from happening.
Mac: I don't care anyway 'cos I love you just the way you are.
Blaize: Thanks. I guess I worry a bit but so far only one sims yelled at me when they figured out my heritage...






Jasmine: Do you know what the watcher's got Thomas doing? Its totally embarrassing.
Blaize: Yeah.
Jasmine: You know? And you're not bothered?
Blaize: Well, the houses have got to stay filled somehow sis.






Blaize: Besides, it's not really our business, you know. We just need to do well at school and complete our aspirations so we can help Mac.
Jasmine: I guess.






Blaize: Not trying to change the subject...but have you seen these?
Jasmine: What? Oh lol, you so ARE trying to change the subject!






Dude: There's my girl, ready to do your homework?
Mac: Sure. But you do know that my birthday is on Sunday so I won't be going back to baby school?
Dude: Yep, just in case though...






Dude: I'm not sure you're ready to grow up...
Mac: DaaAAAd!
Dude: I know, oh! Carry the one...
Mac: Got it, thanks.






Mac: I might be sad on my birthday too dad.
Dude: Why's that?
Mac: 'Cos I might not fit on your knee for cuddles anymore.
Dude: Oh. But you'll always fit in my heart Mac.






Another manuscript?
Blaize: Yep! Woo!






Umm...is that outfit waterproof?
Blaize: Yeah! of course, this is my swimming gear.
Oh, ok then. Hard to tell the difference.
Blaize: Are you kidding. It looks totally different.
K. If you say so.






Hiya Zest. Thanks for dropping by and helping out again.
Zest: No worries. It's so good to see you all again.
Tell me about it. Don't be a stranger eh. Well, I'm for bed. See you all in the morning.
Blaize: Night watcher.
Don't keep him up too late Zest, he's a growing lad.
Zest: Got it. <Grin>






Saturday morning...


Dude: Well, if you could drag your pretty face away from your phone for two seconds we might get some fishing in eh?
Blaize: K. What's Thomas doing?
Dude: Oh! Err, just meeting some neighbours.






Every time I see her I just keep thinking what a lucky escape.
Dude: Shhh, cripes!
Blaize: What do you mean watcher?
Dude: Nothing. The watcher means nothing.






Alex: Hi Blaize, Dude.
Blaize: Hey!
Alex: Alfonso's expecting you round later for a rematch Blaize.
Blaize: Cool! I'll be there soon.






Alfonso Goth: Meckchate! Again! Arghh, I don't know how you got so good Blaize!
Blaize: It's all in the genes Alf...
Alfonso: Rematch?
Blaize: Sure!






Beatrix Goth: So you must be having your birthday soon Blaize?
Blaize: Yep, a couple of days away now.
Alf: Keep him talking Bea, I might win this one!






Lol, sheesh, Cassandra's an elder and she's still wearing her high school uniform. Talk about being in denial.
Bea: If you're trash talking my mum, there's going to be trouble watcher.
Oh! No, of course I wasn't. Sorry Bea.






Blaize: So, seen these?
Oh! Every time I leave you alone for even a second you're showing them off.
Blaize: If ya got it ya might as well flaunt it.
Whatever. *Eye roll*






So how many angelfish you caught today?
Dude: Just a couple.
Might wanna move your lure over to where they are actually jumping then eh?
Dude: <Sarcastically> Oh, what a good idea. Hadn't thought of that.

@Nettlejuice , I agree about the alien Trekkie captain lol. Yeah, I was quite surprised at how Thomas looked! Lucky women of Willow Creek and Oasis Springs!  :P Well, since having a pollinator I haven't had a single ghost household so it is a huge improvement to my first dynasty where I only had ghost households!! It does take a fair bit of time organising it and such. This time around I've been really pushed for time so Thomas had to do his bit in one and a half days lol. Poor guy lived on moodlet solvers and Dude's flirty serums.  ::)

Keep flaunting it, Blaize. His muscles look weird in his alien form, or is it just me?  :o Mac is growing up so fast  :-\ Wow, Thomas really had no time at all and I thought three days with my three guys was cutting it close. Poor Cassie, it's times like this when I wish the game generated new outfits on birthdays.

Can you not evict the ghost households?  Is it against the rules?  If you evict them will the house fill up with regular folks?  I really hate having to do the whole pollinator thing myself.  Although in one try I did have Malcolm inviting girls over and spending the night with them.  He was so sweet BEFORE but after he'd had his way he practically kicked them out of the house with insults.  I was going to let him get married but not after I saw that!  I'm really loving this story.  Dude is so hot!  The interactions between your characters are so smooth and natural it feels real.  Love it.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Jasmine and Blaize are such an attractive pair of siblings. They look really similar. Mackenzie is growing up so fast. It's always great to see Zest again  :D

You can evict ghost households, but there's no guarantee that it won't fill them with ghosts again.  Having a pollinator ensures there will always be people in the houses.

Another lovely chapter, Play!  I love Blaize and Jasmine!  Can't wait to see Mac as a teen!

I'm glad that Blaize appears to have come to terms with his inability to be heir.  Seems like he really wants to help the dynasty too!

@Joria, you are allowed, for sure, to evict ghosts but I found in my first dynasty that the houses kept filling right back up with more ghosts! Which was so frustrating as on my fun games they filled back up with living sims! Typical. Thanks, I think Dude's hot too. Mind you, I'm totally biased.  :)

@Shewolf13 , I'm so excited for mac as a teen too... squee***

@Cristina , I love it when Zest comes to visit.

@KTK10 , luckily Dude is NOT pregnant. I really just couldn't keep another nooboo, just no room. And yeah... sure those outfits are different... *eyes boggle* Whatever!  ::)

@dethdukk, Blaize is on a roll now, churning out aspirations for reward points. He's a machine!  :P

@Nettlejuice , muscles look totally weird in alien outfits. Like puffy sleeves or something lol. Luckily Blaize likes his sim-form!  ;)


So, a thought about the pollination of the town. I was a little reluctant to play like that...for a couple of reasons but mainly the time and extra effort. But I am now glad that I have as it is just so much nicer having houses filled with sims. In my first dynasty the Hollingsworths were literally the ONLY household in the entire game! Crazy! So this time around I have about 9 households with families in them etc and although the trips out don't often make the story (mainly because it's just my sims sitting and chatting which looks boring) it is really fun being able to visit other households. Although this is a dynasty etc which I hope to complete, for me it also has to be about having high relationships between my sims and having fun. If I don't play like that I get bored very quickly! So... thanks for reading, as ever, and hope you keep enjoying the story as much as I am enjoying playing it.  :)

Having a full town is so much more fun than all those silly ghosts lurking about. I try to make my days out look fun but going back to the screenshots they all start looking the same  :-\

Chapter 46: Mac's Birthday


Reagan: OOo I love you honey.
Mac: Love you to mum.






Mac: Hmm, I wish for <mumble>
Everyone singing : Happy birthday....






Dude: Oh, blinding.
Blaize: Way to go sis!






Dude: Oh definitely a teen. I guess your phone will be permanently stuck to your hand now.






Dude: Happy birthday love. Gosh my youngest is now a teen. Well well.
Mac: Thanks dad.






Mac: I've gotta go get changed dad.
Dude: I think you look just lovely how you are.
Mac: <Laughing> Oh dad!






Do you wanna hand with choosing?
Mac: Nope, got this thanks.
Oh. I guess you are growing up.






I had expected something a little more dressy Mac.
Mac: Really? Na, I'm not really into frills.






Mac: So, watcher, I've decided that I'd like to follow in Uncle Zests footsteps, like Blaize too, and become a famous author.
Great! Good luck hun.






In fact all of you have turned out very artsy. Hmm, seems a 'thing' for this generation.
Blaize: Shhh, you're breaking my concentration.






Dude: So, my love, all the children are somewhat busy....






Dude: Have I ever told you.....





Reagan: Yes! And I love you for it.










Mac: Thanks for dropping by and helping.
Zest: No problem, although you might want to revisit those first few paragraphs. To be brutally honest, they aren't that flash.






What's wrong Jasmine?
Jasmine: Well, I had such a vision for this painting...but it's turned out all wrong. In fact, it's terrible.
Oh? I'm sure it can't be that bad.
Jasmine: Come look.






Oh! Errr, I see what you mean. Umm.... well it's certainly not one of your best for sure.
Jasmine: I'm going to sell it. Horrible thing.






Zest: Remember, short paragraphs speed the pace of your story... so adjust your planning accordingly.
Mac: K, Uncle Zest.
Blaize: Well, we need to stop now anyway Mac. Time for breakfast and homework.
Mac: Ugh, I hate doing homework.





Mac: These stupid broken sentences make no sense. What a stupid exercise. I think my English teacher's nuts.
Zest: Well, this certainly does appear to be just busy work. Maybe you'll get something a little more instructive later on.
Blaize: It'll pick up as you go Mac. Count yourself lucky that you got Mrs Baron. My English teacher's a dragon.





Have a great first day at high school Mac.
Mac: Thanks watcher. Will do!

Whoa, Mac is seriously lovely!
Experienced a moment of confusion when I saw the second photo of Winston and Reagan kissing.
Thomas has his own pair of the blazing boxers, I trust.   :)
