@mpart , I'm still trying to figure out if Grim can still reap... lol hanging around all the elder townies at the park waiting to see if one of them will die! Meanwhile just skilling up Nathan in the hopes that the files not bugged.  I'm also hoping that the non controlled elders can still die in their homes. So, it's a waiting game really... waiting for some elder to die! It should be too long as I've noticed a few townies being an elder for a couple of days at least and mostly townies only last 10 days.  :)

Fingers crossed.. what a strange glitch to have! But you have been so 'lucky' with these things! Not..  I really hope that it turns out ok.. to be so close and then have something out of your control ruin it.. *sigh* Let's hope one of those elders dies soon.. (what a thing to say!!)

@KTK10 , yeah, me and glitches huh. You'd have though by now I'd remember to make back ups regularly, but nope.

So after a bit of a frustrating day I basically have figured out that as long as one of my sims in not actively on a lot where a sim is dying then everything goes well. Townies are dying off-screen (as it were) and showing up as ghosts in the relationship panel so fingers crossed I manage to keep away from any deaths. I can't help but laugh really, just when I thought it was pretty much clear sailing till the end.  ::)

Chapter 190: Nate's Teen Birthday


Nate:Hey watcher?
Hmm?
Nate: I've just completed my homework for the very last time!
Huh? How's that? ?
Nate: It's my birthday tomorrow so I won't be going to school ever again.
Umm, you'll still have High School though.
Nate: Oh yeah, but that doesn't count.
*Shakes head* Doesn't quite work that way but, yeah, I get what you mean.




So what are you going to do seeing as you can choose.
Nate: I can chose anything, right?
Sure...
Nate: hmmm, lemme think...




Nate: Dad?
Mal: Son.
Nate: Instead of you and mum going out on your date night will you stay home and hang out with me?
Mal: Sure, spending time with you is always my fav thing to do.




Nate: Thanks dad.
Mal: So, you wanna hit the tub?




Nate: Gosh! What happens if no one likes me at High School?




Madelyn: That's silly. Isn't it Mr H?
Dude: Sure... you've already got many friends at High School Nate.




Mal: It's natural to be worried but honestly son, you've got loads of friends who can't wait for you to join them. Isn't that right, love?
Charlotte: What are we talking about?




Mal: Nate's worried about High School.
Charlotte: Oh, totally... I saw Maci today and she said to tell you that she'd see you by the lockers on Monday morning.
Nate: Are you having your teen birthday over the weekend Madelyn?
Madelyn: Yep, on Sunday.




Mal: *Quietly* I missed you today hun.
Charlotte: Me too.




Oh! Are you leaving Mal?
Mal: Yeah, time for me to go. I'll see you all tomorrow I guess.
K, see you then.




The Next morning...

Nate: Umm... I hope I'm gonna be just as awesome as a teen...
Mackenzie: I'm sure you will be sweetie.
Dude: Oh dear, teen angst here we come.




Happy Birthday Nathan!!




Nate: Woah! Weird as!




Abi: Well, that shirt is very bright.
Nate: *snort* It's hideous!




Charlotte: Happy birthday sweetie.
Nate: Thanks mum, for everything.
Charlotte: You're welcome Nate. Love you.
Nate: Love ya too mum. I'm going to head for the mirror though... really have to change my look!!




Dude: Well, you certainly look better and more like you now.
Nate: Yeah, it was pretty hideous. I'm going to see dad. Is that ok?
Dude: Yep, be good... you know... now you're a teen.
Nate: *grumpy* I know Pop.. I will be.




Mal: Oh happy birthday son!
Nate: Thanks dad.




Nate: Better take a selfie eh.
Mal: 'Smile'!!




Mal: You're looking awesome Nate.
Nate: Thanks dad. Pop's already read me the riot act...I just needed to get out.
Mal: lol, he loves you son that's why he cares.
Nate: Yeah, yeah. Wanna head to the park with me?
Mal: I can't right now but you go and I'll hopefully catch up with you there eh? Have a good time!
Nate: K, see ya.




Nate: Hi Juniper.
Juniper: Hi Nate, you've had your birthday!!
Nate: *Shrug* yeah.




Nate: Oh, so you became a gluto... umm *cough*... into your food... Nice. I'm more cheerful than I was as a kid.
Juniper: Well, I really like my food so it's worked out well.
Nate: *Nods* That's .. umm good then eh.




Nate: You just have to remember that you're beautiful just as you are, right? Doesn't matter what you are or what you're not.
Juniper: Aww, that's so nice of you to say that.




Juniper: *General chit chat... and then quite a lot more chit chat...
Nate: *Thinking* Woah... Juniper can really talk!




Nate: Well, it's been great catching up. I guess I'll see you at school on Monday eh?
Juniper: Yeah, we're in the same English class.
Nate: Nice, see you there then.

Yep, you can see Nate's face. Seeing as he's the last heir I thought we'd enjoy him as we go.  ;)

Thanks everyone, glad you approve of seeing Nate from the get-go.

@sdhoey , yeah there might be a wee bit of tension there between Nate and Dude...  :-X

@KRae , yes I have some townies die 'off-screen' in their houses or where ever the game does it. They just show up as ghosts in my sims relationship panel like normal. Trouble happens if one of my sims is on the same active lot when someone dies... the game just gets caught up in a never-ending cycle of dying as Grim doesn't reap and for whatever reason my game won't spawn a new one. I even tried (in a test file) deleting Grim and killing a sim but the sim just lay dead on the ground for days and no Grim appeared while my sims just mourned non-stop! My guess is some error occurred when Grim actually was placed in a household and because I didn't realize and have been playing and 'savin-as' like normal I don't actually have a save from before Grim was placed. Had I remembered to make a back up each week then, sure I would have lost a fair bit of play but at least then I could have deleted the corrupted file and played on. I'm really bad at remembering to make back ups.  ::) My last back up was about a month ago...
Anyway.... at least the game 'kills' elders on non-active lots so hopefully I can get to the end. Moral of the lesson... make back -ups!! Often!! *head desk*

Chapter 191: Charlotte's Adult Birthday

Nate: Congratulations mum, you look great!
Charlotte: Thanks Nate.




Mal: You do look beautiful love, happy birthday.
Charlotte: Thanks, I'm so glad you were able to make it Mal.
Mal: Me too.




Charlotte: Hmm, what to wish for, I feel like I have everything I could possible want...
Dude: How 'bout clear sailing through Nate's teen years... teen boys can get up to all sorts of trouble, just sayin...




Charlotte: Ok, here's goes.
Aw Fred, you're ruining the moonlight shot...




Happy Birthday Charlotte, may all your wishes come true!




Still look gorgeous as ever.
Fred: Thanks!




Nate: So you're a bit squeamish yet you work as a community gardener. Doesn't that seem like torture?
Fred: Umm.. I manage to keep my spirits up by watching the clouds and things like that. It's not too bad.
Charlotte: As long as you're happy in what you do then nothing else really matters.
Dude: And are kind to people and don't hurt their feelings, eh Nate?
Nate: Hm
Mal: Well, it's been a lovely party hun, not often the watcher let's us all eat cake for breakfast.
I know, I seem to be more lenient towards food and stuff just recently.
Caleb: Long may that continue.
Charlotte: Thank you everyone, for coming and celebrating with me




A little later...

Dude: Look Nate I've told you about leaving your homework until the last minute. It's really not good enough.
Nate: I forgot because of mum's birthday.
Dude: You're an heir, things like this are too important to 'forget'.
Nate: *grits teeth* Sorry Pop




Have a really great first day at High School Nate.
Nate: Thanks! Will do watcher.




Julien: Oh so you had your elder birthday too, sorry we missed it, things seem to have been quite busy recently in the house.
Clyde: Yeah, it was a few days ago now. I didn't feel like celebrating to be honest.
Julien: I know what you mean, creaky bones!
Clyde: I know, right.




Julien: Gosh, I didn't even realize you were home from school.
Nate: Yeah.
Julien: Would you like a hand with your homework.
Nate: Thanks Great granddad, that would be nice.
How was your first day?
Nate: It was fine, I have friends in every class.
That's nice.
Nate: Yeah




Nate: I might beat you...




Dude: Maybe...




Dude: Not today though, that's meck chate!
Nate: *sigh* I'm going to head out to the library.
Dude: K, be good and don't get into any trouble.
Nate: I won't.





You look... serious.
Nate: Hmm





Nate: I need to figure out... hmm... maybe. K, so that's how it's done...
What are you researching?
Nate: Just some fishing tips and stuff.
Why didn't you ask your Pop? He knows tons about fishing.
Nate: That and everything else. I want to do something for myself. I'm not stupid.
I see.




It's nice out here.
Nate: I guess.




Nate: Can you see any?
Yep, there's one right here.
Nate: *perking up* Thanks watcher.
Anytime.




A while later...

How's it going?
Nate: Nothing.
It'll happen.
Nate: It better 'cos I'm not going home without one.




Nate: Ooo got something...cripes, it's massive...
Umm...about that...




Nate: Oh.
Just throw your line out again, I know you'll catch an angelfish soon. I feel it.
Nate: K.




Nate: Thanks for joining me.
Caleb: No problem Nate, it's so peaceful out here. I really enjoy fishing.
Nate: I enjoy getting away from everyone.




Nate: At last.
Good job!
Caleb: Just in time too, we need to head back Nate otherwise you'll be late for school.
Nate: K, I'm good with that.




Nate: Oo... I think my cooking skills need a bit more work.
Caleb: Yeah.. err, I've tasted worse, I think.

Chapter 192: Caleb's Work Day


Morning.
Dude: Morning.
You ok?
Dude: Yep, why?
You're being so tough on Nate.
Dude: He needs it.
I'm not sure he does. He takes a lot of things to heart you know.
Dude: He needs a strong hand, just take my word for it.




I'm not taking your word on it. I want you to explain why suddenly you're the mean guy.
Dude: It's that flaming aspiration he's doing.
*Pause* Oh... you know.
Dude: Yes... *massive punch* I know.
Oh.
Dude: It's nothing but trouble.
I'm keeping an eye on him.
Dude: Fat lot of use that will do.
Look... he's only a teen... he only needs to kiss and few sims... nothing else. Heck he doesn't even need to have a 'first kiss' with anyone apart from the first few sims...
Dude: Hmm, well, I'm telling you it's trouble and can lead to a lot of people getting hurt.
I promise it won't, I'm making him take his time, after all he's got his whole life in which to get this done. Don't let this drive a wedge between the two of you. I know he's feeling it.
Dude: Go away and give me some space and I'll think about it.
K... I might head out with Caleb today then.
Dude: Good idea.




*gasp* You have ghost co-workers?
Caleb: umm... not that I've noticed, I think she's just some citizen coming to make a complaint.
Oh...right then.




Gosh, you look so *searches for word* serious sitting in the bosses chair.
Caleb: I am the chief now watcher. I've got a lot of responsibility.




Well, least all your minions seem to be working hard.
Caleb: Officers of the Law watcher, it's not good form to malign officers.
*Cough* No, sorry.




Caleb: Any further leads Officer Hardi?
Officer Hardi: I'm working on it boss.




Caleb: Hmm, this really isn't adding up. Come on watcher, we're heading to the scene of the crime.







Officer Hardi: Cripes! What's the boss doing here?
Officer Salsbury: I think he's showing his watcher around, we better get busy.




Caleb: I see, so the items were missing on your arrival home?
Ghost eye witness: That's right.
Caleb: And yet there was no sign of a forced entry?
Ghost: Umm.. no..
Caleb: I see. Well my officers will take it from here. Thank you sir. Come on watcher, I have all the info I need.
You do? I haven't got a clue.
Caleb: lol Really watcher? Make sure you clean up the scene before you leave Officer Finch.
Officer Finch: Yes sir.





Caleb: Hey Mal! Good to see you!




Caleb: You haven't happened to see a blond male with a short sleeved top on wearing slacks around here anywhere would you?
Mal: Woah, funny you should ask....
How the heck did you get those clues from looking at the crime scene? ?
Caleb: Gut instinct and years of experience watcher.




Caleb: Here we go.




Perp: I've been here all along Chief.
Caleb: Even last night?
Perp: *Looks shifty* Err... of course. She'll tell you that, won't you girly?
Lady: Nope, never met this man before in my life Chief.




Caleb: Let's try these on for size eh.
Whadya know, a perfect fit.
Perp: Stow it watcher.
Caleb: Manners or I'll do you for being foul-mouthed too.
*Snort*





Officer Finch: Good bust Chief.
Perp: I don't think it was that good.
Caleb: Heh




Perp: That better be just a mirror and not that one way glass stuff.
Caleb: Of course it's just a mirror.




Caleb: Now sonny, let's just take a moment to peruse these holiday snaps of yours shall we?
Perp: Huh? That's not *nervous swallow* me... I must have a ... twin, yeah, a twin.




Caleb: *Casually swinging the handcuffs* So is there anything else you want to add to your statement?
Perp: umm... do you do plea bargins?




Caleb: Sure we do sonny, you just make your confession and we can talk about it.




Perp: When do we do the bargain?
Caleb: lol, they never change eh watcher.
Nope, congrats on closing the case Caleb.
Caleb: All in a days work watcher, making the world a safer place one perp at a time.




Caleb: Righty o 'Hotpants' out you come.
*Snicker* 'Hotpants'...




Hotpants: You lettin me go free?
Caleb: Yep sonny, that's what I'm doing... letting you go free to hot wire every fake car from here to Granite Falls.
Hotpants: Swwwweeeeet.




Hotpants: You said you were lettin me go free.
Caleb: Hm hmm. Well, life's full of disappointments.




Well, that was a pretty busy day Caleb.
Caleb: Home time soon, just want to finish filing the paper work
Funny how it's still called 'paper work'.
Caleb: Hmm, force of habit I guess. It sure is a lot quicker and easier to access and cross-ref now all the reports are digitalized.
Thanks for letting me tag along.
Caleb: You're welcome. Looked like you and Dude needed some space eh.
*Sigh* yeah, I forgot I still need to sort that.
Caleb: Come on watcher, you'll be fine. Let's go home.

@mpart ghosts just randomly happen once you have been playing the same file for a while. They often take the role of various NPC's such as Doctors etc too... Can get a bit weird!

Chapter 193: Making a Friend

Are you still angry?
Nate: Nope, not really. Why?




You just kinda looked a bit out of sorts, that's all.
Nate: I'm still not happy with all the grief Pop keeps giving me. It's not like I'm doing anything wrong.
*Sigh* I know... he's just a bit touchy about this aspiration.




Yeah, well least you can get away from the house to have some down time eh.
Nate: Yeah. Is that an angelfish watcher?
Where? Oh! Yeah it is!




Nate: Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about!
Nice! Anyway, I've got someone I'd like you to met.
Nate: Oh watcher, I'm not in the mood for girlfriends...
No.. this is just someone to talk to. I think she gets what you're going through.
Nate: Can't I just keep fishing?
Come on...trust me.
Nate: Last time you said that I ended up in this mess I'm in now.




Nate: Hey.




Destiny: Hiya. Nate right?
Nate: Yep, Destiny? Yeah? I've heard so much about you and your famous family! Nice to meet you!
Destiny: Thanks. Yeah my granddad Colt is pretty famous.
Nate: Heck yeah! He's legendary! I can't believe I'm meeting a real live member of the Brooks family!
Destiny: Hmm, I see what your watcher means... in-built charm. Luckily I'm immune to it. So, what's been going down in your house?




Nate: Oh you wouldn't believe the grief my Pop's been giving me. Constant lectures on behaving myself and not hurting peoples' feelings... it just never. Ever. Stops. Ugh...
Destiny: *Nods* Hm hmm, I can see that would be pretty annoying.




Nate: Annoying! I'm telling you, something's gotta give. He just won't let up. It's like he just doesn't even know me anymore.




Destiny: You know, I do get it. Nothing worse than have your 'rents and family down on you for stuff that you haven't even done or even thought eh. My big brother Kale's kinda like you but he eventually sorted himself out. I mean he got in a bit of a tangle doing the same aspiration your doing. It was kinda embarrassing for me too 'cos everyone talked about him.




Destiny: But you know Nate, this is what you've got to get done for your dynasty and there's no use crying over it all. In a way your Pop's right, what you're going to have to do to get this completed is going to hurt some people somewhere along the line. You can't keep pretending like you're Mr Nice Guy and go around breaking hearts everywhere. I guess the difference is my brother was so full of himself that he actually enjoyed it until it came time to break up with all his girlfriends... You gotta choose your own fate really... and stop whining about it.




Nate: Ouch. That was a burn if I ever heard one...
Destiny: Yeah, but I'm right, right?
Nate: Umm... I guess so. I hadn't really thought about it all like that.
Destiny: Well, you gotta man up and get your requirements done. Either that or runaway and let everyone who loves you and is counting on you down. Just saying.
Nate: I'm not going to do that.
Destiny: Right. So what's your options then? Cry about it all the time or just do it? Besides... it's kinda funny that your Pop is chewing you out for doing what he keeps telling you to do anyway...
Nate: Huh?
Destiny: Completing your "requirements"... <duh>




Nate: Oh!! Lol, you're right! That is kinda funny!
Destiny: *Cracking up* Lol, see?




Nate: Talking to you was awesome Destiny!
Destiny: Don't get to be a Brooks and not be awesome *snicker*
Nate: Hug?




Destiny: Yeah...don't think so. No offense but you just keep your hands to yourself there Nate.
Nate: Lol, can't kill me for trying.




Nate: Hi 5 it is. Woo!








Nate: Kale is so lucky having you as a sister... so lucky.
Destiny: Thanks, but we can be friends, right?
Nate: Right. And, thanks, eh.




Nate: See ya round Destiny.
Destiny: Not if I see ya first!
Nate: *Snort*





Nate: You know watcher, every time I come here there is always rubbish lying around.
I know, right... it's a right pain.




So did talking to Destiny help?
Nate: *grunt* Yep, she's pretty awesome.
Agreed.




You still look sad though...
Nate: I just keep thinking about what Pop said last time we spoke.
Which was?
Nate: That only idiots do what I'm doing.
*Sigh* he just isn't handling this right. You know you're a great kid. Try to forget about Pop and focus on yourself for a bit eh.
Nate: I guess. It's just hard to let him down 'cos he's so perfect and does everything right all the time.
Oh my gosh... Kid, I'm telling you, as good a guy as your Pop is... he 'aint perfect. Take it from me.




Nate: Oh cool! There's dad.







Mal: So how's everything going?
Nate: *Sigh* O.K. I guess.  *Pause* Not sure really.




Mal: Well I've got just the thing to cheer you up! Come on!
Nate: Umm, O.K.



* Destiny Brooks was very kindly lent to me from sdhoey and of course, I'm sure you all know Destiny from sdhoey's amazing dynasty story 'The Return Of Brooks'
Thank you so much sdhoey, playing with Destiny was really fun.  :)

@KRae exactly, I'm sure Dude's having 'guilt' flashbacks lol
@Cristina , Poor Nate, such a sensitive wee soul, *snort* must be his 'creative' side coming out.  :)
@JudesSims , yeah I think that quite a few of my NPC sims are ghosts now I guess the game sees them as a viable replacement sim when looking to fill the role. I also think this is designed to be like that rather than a mistake. I guess it's part of the Dev's idea of 'weirder stories'. I find it annoying as once you've got a ghost NPC you're suck with them as of course they don't die! Not that it really matters... I suppose.

Sorry I haven't posted.  Been trying my hand out with Metro's challenges so was hyper-focused on that.  That teen age boy is just so handsome, as are all your guys.  It was a treat to see him with Destiny.  What a couple they would make!
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

@Joria:) They would make a cute couple for sure... obviously I had to play that chapter in another file but wouldn't it be cool if we were able to marry across dynasties, what fun!

Chapter 194: Getting Stuff Done


Mal: Give it a try Nate, come on.
Nate: Ugh...ok.




Mal: Oops, not as easy as it looks!
Nate: Hm.




Nate: I nailed this one.
Mal: I don't seem to be as flexible as I thought I was.
Nate: Getting old dad. *snort*





Nate: Whadya doing?
Mal: Umm passing I think.




Mal: So, did you enjoy that?
Nate: Yeah, it was pretty fun actually.
Mal Hm hmm!




Mal: Salad's nearly ready.
Nate: Oh, it's Pop, wanting to know what I'm doing. *Sigh*




Mal: Look Nate if Pop didn't care so much about you he wouldn't txt and stuff.
Nate: I know but it's like he.... oh, forget it.




Mal: Look Nate there's something we should talk about. When your mother and I met....
Nate: *thinking* Oh paaleease not the 'woohoo talk'
Mal:.... love at first sight. After that, when we knew we wanted to be together forever... <Blah blah woohoo talk blah blah>




Nate: Ohhhmaahhgoshhh.... Noo
Mal: Heh, that was more embarrassing than I anticipated...




Mal: Well, now you at least know why Dude's been on your case...*grimace*
Nate: Somebody kill me.




Mal: Aww, come here son. Life's good, you'll be right.
Nate: I know. Love you.
Mal: Love ya too. I'll see you later.
Nate: I'll txt you the time the parties are starting. K?
Mal: Perfect.





Hiya Nate.
Nate: Hi watcher.
What cha doing?
Nate: Painting.
Hmm.... are you using food?
Nate: lol... something like that.
K, well your first party is starting like...now, so you better clean up this arty mess and get ready.
Nate: *snort* Will do watcher.
You're a good boy.
Nate: Keep tellin' me, I might just start believing you!




Some hours later...

Julien: Well, I'd say everything went really well eh?
Nate: Yeah, the house party was a lot of fun actually.







Nate: I thought we'd nearly lost Nan though when the watcher made them all playful during the dinner party though!




Mac: I think you might have over done it a bit watcher.... hysterical, just sayin...






Dude: Actually, I've been meaning to tell you how proud I am of you Nate. Your parties were a lot of fun, well done.
Nate: Thanks Pop! I've finished my aspiration too.
Dude: Better and better, good for you!
Nate: I thought I'd head out and do some fishing. The watcher wants to show me some 'good spots' apparently. Do you want to come to Pop?
Dude: Next time I will, go and enjoy yourself.




Nate: Hmm... I dunno about this spot watcher. All I've been getting is these guppys.
Rats, normally it's really good fishing here.
Nate: Well I've certainly been getting a lot of fish, just not any angelfish.
K. Umm, let's go try another good spot I know.
Nate: K





Nate: Wow, it sure is nice down here.
Nice?
Nate: Beautiful, spectacular, enchanting...
That's better, your generation use 'nice' way too much.
Nate: I know, right.
Sooo... you and Pop seem to be getting along just dandy.
Nate: Hmm, I think dad was right, he just cares too much.
I don't think you can ever care toooo much, but I know what you mean.




So what's next?
Nate: Well, thought I'd like to become a chef, if that's ok?
Sure, no one's done that yet in your family so be my guest.
Nate: Cool, err, I mean awesome...nice...
Lol...
Nate: What I mean is that would be really exciting, I've wanted to put my cooking skills to a good use and I can't think of anything else I'd rather do.
Wow... a whole sentence Nate! Lol. I agree. I think you are going to make a fantastic chef.
Nate: Thanks. Well, I've got a few angelfish so time to head home eh?
Sure, I need to check up on a few things anyway.
Nate: This turned out to really be a 'good spot' watcher.
Told you so.





I didn't know you were into gardening too?
Nate: Hmm... I've got to grow my own death flower plant.
Huh? Just go harvest Pop's one.
Nate: Nope, I want to do it all from scratch.




Nate: I'm going to skill up until I can graft and then go collect my own wild plants.
Ok... if that's what you want to do.
Nate: It is. Umm... could you buy me my own garden beds?
Sure. How many you want.
Nate: Two should be enough.
Consider it done.
Nate: Thanks!





Nate: Right... here goes!
You know you'll have to evolve these too, right.
Nate: Yep, it's a shame that wild plants aren't better quality but I'll get there.
I'm confident you will hun.
