I apologize for necroposting something which was posted a long time ago, but I wanted to comment on your reply to Shewolf13 about having a pollinator to keep the town populated:

Quote from: Nettlejuice
Yeah, but it would be easier for the founder and next heir etc and so on, to do this as you can rake in so many points while completing the serial romantic etc. It's just that would obviously need male heirs... I'm a bit torn about who to use at the moment 'cos it really makes the heirs/founder etc a bit of a cad. lol  And I can't see myself being bothered to complete the serial romantic with a helper just due to the intensity of the play when you're trying to get it done in five days or less etc. Argh, decisions!  ::)

If I were doing an Immortal Dynasty, I would follow Shewolf13's suggestion and use the male helpers and not your heirs. Why? Because if you have the male heir procreate with the ladies, all their kids would be related by blood and NOT viable for spouse material. If you don't care about having townies as spouses, that's your perogative, but for me, I wouldn't risk it. Unless the game respawns random townies after you move in ones of your own or they die of old age, I would try to use the original townies and then go for the spawned ones, so I don't want to get a lady pregnant with my heir's kids outside of the house. Again, that's my opinion and you are right in saying that having the heirs be Serial Romantics will give some useful points.

Like you, I don't like having my Sims philander - I'm a strict Catholic and am disgusted by the thought of having relations with multiple women, much less having my Sims string women or men along!  :-[

EDIT: Okay, since I don't want to seem like a jerk and just comment on a reply, I'll comment on the last updates. I really like how you implemented the Get to Work expansion into your story, having your founder take you on a field trip to Sixam. I really really need to get this expansion soon, but have no $$$.  :'(

And I think you can't keep the alien baby if your founder was abducted as them's the rules, but I hope that, like in Sims 3 Seasons, you get to see the alien baby before sending it back to Sixam. ^_^
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

@EtnaFan666 we can now have them but not as a heir

Chapter 12: Can't Contain Nature


Zest: I really think it's time for nooboo to make an appearance. I mean, you've been in labour for quite a while now.
Dude: Na, she's good.
OMG, I guess Denial aint just a river in Egypt.






I've got a little cot ready for the nooboo.
Dude: Nice.
*sigh*





Zest: Grady! Good to see you.
Grady: How's things?
Zest: Well apart from Dude refusing to give birth... great!





Grady: Perhaps I should have a chat with Winston.
Zest: That would be great.
Really great, he won't listen to me.





Grady: So good to see you my boy.
Dude: You too.
Grady: So... birth soon?
Dude: Umm.. <whispering> How does the nooboo actually <mumble mumble> , you know?
Grady: Just like a normal birthday.. <whispering> Sparkles <whispering> .... Ok?
Dude: Cool.





Dude: OooOOoooooo. OOOOOOOOooo
<Gulp> Cripes!





Dude: <Heavy panting.>
You're doing great Dude...





Dude: Welcome Destinee Hollinsworth, my nooboo.





Dude: Oh, she's so beautiful. Aren't you princess.






Oh she's adorable!
Dude: Yes you are! You are just the most amazing nooboo in the entire simverse.






Dude: <laughing with joy> Oh your daddy just adores you!





Dude: 'an I'm going to love you and cuddle you and just eat you all up, you're so gorgeous.





Oh! <Surprised> That's er... quite handy then!
Dude: I love you little Destinee.





<Awestruck> Wow! Welcome little nooboo. You are quite beautiful.





Grady: Aren't you just adorable! The best looking little lady around.





Grady: Well done Winston...isn't your daddy just so clever.





Wow Dude! You're a machine. Birthed a nooboo two hours ago... now you're starting a brand new job. You rock!
Dude: Why thank you watcher. That's quite a compliment right there. <Grin>





Dude: Morning.
Receptionist: Hmm hm, I see *Morning Winston* Hmm Yes, wait a moment and I'll put you through. Hold please.





Dude: Technically you're not supposed to be here, so don't touch anything. K?
K.





Dude: Hmm, just a spatula full... easy does it. Good.






Dude: Ahh, analysis complete. Hmm, that's interesting, it's generated another crystal. Useful.





Dude: So, I've created the most incredible serum and have chosen you to be the first person to ever benefit from it.
Co-Worker: Oh wow! Thank you so much. I can't wait to test your untested serum.
<Snort>
Dude: Shhh.




Dude: Wow, she fell for it!





So what are you actually testing there?
Dude: Haven't got a clue.
OK, so why are you testing it?
Dude: To find out what it is.
And then what?
Dude: Haven't got a clue.





Dude: Well, that wraps up a rather fun and satisfying day at work.
Agree.
Dude: Home time.

Let me see -- RIP Grady, he was great, a real peacemaker between the Watcher and Winston.

I'm so envious you've gotten someone abducted -- and Winston! Of course, he'd be in denial about being pregnant.

Loved your shots of Sixam, by the way. I haven't gotten up there yet.

Looking forward to your alien nooboo. Will you be able to keep him or her? (I'll have to go check the Dynasty rules). Can't wait for the next update.

Chapter 13: A Decision


Dude: Thanks for clearing the garden.
No worries. The extra simoleons were quite handy.
Dude: We that broke?
Yeah, still... Zesty's churning out the books so the cash flow will start...ummm, flowing soon I guess.





Right, so we haven't got all the plants we need. These were just the one's you'd collected or bought from seed packets so you're gonna need to get a wriggle on and get up to speed where you can graft. K?
Dude: Got it.





Wow, good work, they're popping up fast.
Dude: No mucking around here watcher, I'm working flat out.





Oh! Destinee needs you.





Dude: On it. Can't wait to hold her.





Dude: Oh my little poopy princess, daddy's got'cha





Dude: There you go. All better my little cutie.





Another lightbulb moment then?
Dude: Yeah! Check this out!
I'm checking it.
Dude: Do you know what it is?
Nope.
Dude: Me neither.
*Sigh* Well... I'll see you in the morning, I'm tuckered out.
Dude: Nite.






Morning. Whatcha doing?
Dude: Watching my baby, isn't she beautiful?
She sure is.
Dude: I could watch her all day and never get tired of looking at her.
Yeah, know that feeling. What are eating?
Dude: Breakfast.
Yeah... but what is it?
Dude: Spinach.





Dude: There's my little princess. What a good girl you are.
<Shakes head> For some reason I find you feeding Destinee incredibly fascinating. I can't figure out if it's good or bad.






Dude: What a good little princess you are. Well daddy's got to get to work now but I'll see you soon. Be a good girl for Uncle Zesty now baby.





Zest: Wow. Destinee you are the prettiest little nooboo I've ever seen.
See ya Zest, have fun.
Zest: You going to work with Dude again?
Yeah. It's quite fun actually.





Co-Worker: Oh thank you sooo much for letting me test your tainted serum.
<Snicker>
Dude: <Making doe-eyes> You're welcome.





Woah! That's sooo cool.
Dude: I know, right.





Oh! Cripes! Is that supposed to happen?
Dude: Oh yes. It's is supposed to happen exactly like that.





Dude: That's another grrrreat result to end the day with.
Home time?
Dude: Yep.







What are you doing?
Dude: Taking a cutting.
Woo! Way to go!
Dude: I'm going to combine the potato and carrot plant.
Hmm, good thinking.






Dude: Watcher?
Yeah?
Dude: It's Destinee's birthday today.
Wow, that came around fast.
Dude: Will you support my decision 100% no matter what?
Totally. 1000%. All the way.
Dude: K.






Dude: Well, my little princess. You are nearly all grown up.





Dude: Hard to believe I won't hold you in my arms like this again.
Oh<Sniff> You're making me all sentimental.





Dude: Instead you'll be a big girl, getting scraped knees and homework tasks. And you'll need to work hard so you can grow up and get a good job and be a big adult ... All these things you'll do. You'll fall in love and get married... and... so many things little princess. So many things.





Dude: And all through it all, there will be your name imprinted on my heart Destinee Hollingsworth. Forever loving you, my little nooboo.






Dude: Your mummy's waiting Destinee, be a good girl and know that I will love you for the rest of my life.

@MarianT , it is fun having a sim abducted but it seriously impacted on my strategy as I had planned for Winston to complete the Outdoor Enthusiast aspiration as his second immortal requirement but because he was so pregnant he could only waddle around instead of run between plants/insect etc  it just didn't happen. That and the fact he needed to eat and use the bathroom every five minutes!!
I have play tested this aspiration 3 times and it is do-able in a weekend stay at GF, then you just come home and sleep in a tent for the next five nights.
So... he's now trying madly to complete the Freelance Botanist, which is terrible time consuming. At this point I'm not sure we're going to make it lol. Still, it's a lot of fun trying.
There is something to be said, however, for going the safe and easy route of having a painting founder!



About Winston's decision:

Winston decided to send little Destinee back to her home planet Splork because he knew that he had to concentrate every single minute on completing his immortal requirements. As his watcher I support his decision 100%  :P

Chapter 14: A Birthday


Morning. Are you playing games in there?
Dude: No, looking through pictures of Destinee.
I'm very proud of your strength of character you know.
Dude: Huh?
Well, that was one heck of a decision.
Dude: Yeah *sigh* I know. Umm... don't you think it's kinda weird that you're chatting to me while I'm... you know?
No. Ahh, I guess it doesn't bother me.
Dude: I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing that neither of us cares. lol
<Shrugs> Me neither.





You should probably upgrade that old stove.
Dude: You should probably buy us a new one.
You should probably earn some more money.
Dude: You should probably ...errr
Ha! Got cha!
Dude: Dang it.





Dude: Oh..err... Out of shape.
You're telling me!
Dude: Thanks for coming round and mentoring me Rogelio.
Rogelioi: My pleasure.
Well, I'll leave you to it. You're gonna need to work out all day to lose that nooboo fat Dude.
Dude: Thanks for the encouragement.
<Grin> You're welcome.






Oh THERE you are...
Dude: Shhh... on the phone.
Wow, you are still really chubby..
Dude: NOT now... I'm ordering up my birthday party. We'll talk about this in a minute.






Dude: Hmm, hard to know what to wish for... a silent watcher? A silent and deaf watcher?
Oh ha ha!
Dude: Lol





Zest: Wow! Happy Birthday Dude!
Happy Birthday!





Dude: Thanks. Didn't really want to age up.... still, there ya have it.
Well. Time to hit the treadmill I bought for your birthday pressie.
Dude: You bought me a 'TREADMILL' for a PRESENT?
Zest: lol, You just never change watcher. <Shakes his head>





Various Guests: So.. this is a kinda cool party... you get to work out and we get to eat all your food etc.
Dude: Well it just so turned out that my co-worker here is able to mentor me.
Valerie: I know, and I love mentoring people so this party just rocks as far as I'm concerned.





So.... various cakes were eaten, stories told...





Zest made such a stirring speech with juice, that it made Dude fall off the treadmill.





The hired help stood doing nothing amongst the filth and rubbish.





More food was served and eaten and an even bigger mess was made... which is of course the standard that any successful party is measured by.





Three people became incredibly playful thanks to Zesty's hilarious jokes. Luckily we still had the mirror Dude made ages ago so we could all calm down.





And then once we'd partied the night away, literally, Dude realized he'd quite like one of his co-workers to be his girlfriend.




She said... yes, of course. And then it was time for work <Grin> Woo! Another gold medal despite being a very un-conventional party! lol






So... party boy. You better stop making up with your robot friend here now you got a girl.
Dude: Lol, my robot loves me.
Yeah, you can almost see the adoration. Weird.





New GF Emma: So, that was some party last night.
Dude: Glad you enjoyed it. <wink>
GF: <Swoon>
<Rolling eyes> Oh, here we go...






Dude: Hold still ... mwhahahaha





Dude: <cracking up> Hahahaha...ohhh, it just never gets old.





Dude: Just a little tap here <snicker> aaaand a little tap here... <pffff hahaha>





Tourist: Ahhhh, I'm on fire.
Dude: Relax man, I got it.





Tourist: <stressed out of his eyeballs> That was way too close.
Dude: Hmm hmm. <Smirk> Feels good to be a hero.
I'm going home.





Huh. Looks like your work-out party worked. You look much better.
Dude: You know it.





That really is one crazy plant.
Dude: Like the cow thing's not?
Yeah... they both are crazy.
Dude: Still 'nother requirement checked off.
True.

Noooooo  :'( I was really hoping there would be an alien heir. Is that against the rules? Or did you just not want alien blood? Or both? Oh well, at the end of the day what matters is the dynasty. Kudos to Dude for being able to make that hard choice.  :D

Heirs have to be from a "natural birth" Between two sims, Male and female. Alien sims born from abductions can be part of the household or sent back. It is up to the watcher/player if they want to have the alien living in the house. See page 36 for Nutella's comment on this in the Sims 4 Immortal dynasty Thread

I know it wasn't supposed to be funny but I giggled when I read about the pregnant Winston waddling around at Granite Falls, too slow to complete the Outdoor Herbalist aspiration.
One of my fave activities in SIms 4 is gardening, but the Freelance Botanist is a real chore when all that's left is maxing the skill.
Grafting seems to be the fastest way to level.

You take great screenshots. Winston is a sim of many facial expressions!

@Shewolf13 , yeah, it was a bit of a tug of the old heart strings but this is just going to be too close to have any distractions. Between skilling up and going to work Dude doesn't have a spare moment. Destinee was taken back to 'Splork' and Dude was told he would not have any further contact with her.  :( So, I guess that is pretty final.

@SLF and @Wolffie , just as sdhoey said, them da' rules!   :) Ya never know, seeing as Dude's a scientist he might get abducted again and maybe, if he's finished his immortal requirements we might keep him/her. Be nice eh.

@sdhoey, thanks for reading and supporting, much appreciated.  :)

@oshizu, it was funny. Honestly he was like a beached whale! It was actually pretty cute. Thanks re:screenshots, I just love Dude's face... can't get enough of it. I call it my dynasty sim-spam. lol

Chapter 15: The Non Date


You're up early.
Dude: Hm hmm. Got lots to do today and Emma's coming round later so I want to get things done before she gets here.
*Nods* Cool. Is it a date?
Dude: No, she's just coming around to hang out.






I love sunrise.
Dude: It's nice eh.
Yep






Oh for crying out loud! That was THE most disgusting noise EVER. That dang cowplant just shoved it's sloppy wet cake right out next to my ear. <Dry retching sounds> Ughh, I feel nauseous.
Dude: Lol, I shouldn't laugh but, yeah, it sounds pretty bad eh.





Well least your gardening skill is coming along nicely. I wish that the grafted pomegranate and 'whatever it was' would hurry up and grow a deathflower.
Dude: Patience! It'll happen.
*Sigh* Just a little bit quicker would be good.





Oh Thanks for feeding it Zest. It's so hungry all the time. Maybe we should feed it someone...
Zest: No... and it's no problem to feed it the cow plant food. Only takes a second.
Well I'm going to go wait for Emma then. Be nice to have some girl chat.






Oh! Mortimer's looking so old. I hate it when he gets old, it's the start of the end. *Sigh*






Dude, I've given up on waiting for Emma, I don't think she's....Oh! You found her then.





Ohh, new love. So nice. <munching sounds>
Dude: *Sigh* What are you doing watcher?
I'm eating popcorn while I'm watching you two.
Dude: Do you think you could perhaps go watch some TV instead so Emma and I can have some privacy?
Oh! Umm...sure... whateverz.






Dude: You're so pretty.
Emma: Oh! Thanks.
Dude: Sorry about the watcher, she doesn't take a hint too well, best to be up-front with her.
Emma: lol, that's ok. It's just nice being here, alone with you.








Emma: Wow! That was some kiss!




Dude: I think we need some practice.




Emma: I agree, just to make sure...








Emma: <Whispering> I think you're pretty hot Mr Hollingsworth.




Adriel: Hi ya Dude, not interrupting anything am I?
Dude: ...





Well, Adriel sure knows how to put a damper on things eh?
Dude: Eh. And I thought you were bad.
Thanks...er, I think. Was that a compliment?
Dude: Kinda. Want to come to Sixam with me?
<Brightening up> Oh do I ever!!










This place is stunning. I don't think I'll ever get tired of coming here.
Dude: Agree. Come down from there though, I want to go this way.
Yep. Wait. Don't want to get lost.





Dude: Hi Brycen. How's your day been?
Brycen: Oh, you know, so-so.





Dude: I brought you a present...
Brycen: Oh my! Wow, Thanks so much Winston.
Is that what I think it is? <Awe struck> Is that a .... sonic screwdriver?





Dude: I was wondering if I could take a DNA sample? It doesn't hurt.
Brycen: Uh huh. No way!
Dude: Oh! <embarrassed> Sorry...





A little later....
Tylor: Yes. It's not really socially acceptable amongst us to take DNA samples.
Dude: Hmm, it was pretty embarrassing.
Tylor: He'll be fine and I'm sure you will be too now that you know.
Dude: Yes. *Nods*.
Tylor: <Leaning a little too close> Now... if you'd asked me however...
Oh! Dude! Is that the time... we really need to go... now.
Dude: Bye Tylor.
Tylor: Till next time Winston.







Wow! What is WITH Tylor constantly hitting on you?
Dude: I know! It's a little crazy and unsettling for sure.
Funny thing is... he's such a nice guy...alien...aliendude. Maybe you need to tell him about Emma.
Dude: Hmm, good idea.
Umm.. what is that blue webby stuff you're kneeling in?
Dude: Don't know....






Dude: Let's see what the gardening manual says...





Note from the watcher: The kisses etc between Dude and Emma... were autonomous apart from the 'first kiss' interaction. It was so funny... all I did was sit watching and take screenshots! I've never had such autonomous romantic interactions! I actually thought perhaps it was a glitch or something but Winston would use a friendly social every now and then and Emma would come right back with a romantic one. lol And no, she hasn't got the romantic trait, neither has Winston. lmao. Then when his co-worker Adriel came over to talk, Dude pulled that hilarious face!  ;D (Just in case you were wondering the little romantic aura lamps weren't activated!  :P)

Chapter 16: Dinner Party


Dude: You hungry? Are you? Come on then?
It'll have your arm all the way to your elbow one of these days.
Dude: Pfffft, as if.






Zest: That smells great Dude.
Dude: Chilli, help yourself, there's plenty.
I'll say. There's enough food here to feed an army.
Dude: I'm about to throw a dinner party.
Oh! We don't have a table though.
Dude: Our friends won't mind. It'll be fine.





Zest: This is GOOD.






Dude: Hi everyone, thanks for coming... grab a plate!





Dude: Oh you girls going for the cake?
Zoe: <Giggle> Yes, I've got a sweet tooth.
Rogelio: Matches your personality then.
Zoe: Oh! You flatterer you!
Liberty: What a 'sweet' thing to say.
Dude: Lol, these puns are getting bad! <Grin>






Valarie: So when do you think your watcher will actually build you boys a house?
Don: Yeah, I've been wondering that myself.
Zest: Don't know. She says she's a bit uninspired at the moment.
Emma: Well least you don't have to worry about winter or anything.





Dude: Hmmm, castor sugar or soft brown...
Umm... don't ask me, I can't bake.
Dude: Really? You still haven't learnt?
Yeah, na. I just don't have the 'knack' you know. Everything I try comes out wrong.





Dude: Castor sugar... Looks good don't you think?
Looks great and smells even better!
Dude: You better grab a slice before Zoe sees it!





Dude: Heyyy, you know that deep sea divers use an ascent rate of 30' per minute when diving deeper than 60 feet, everyone knows that.
Don: I still say that saturation diving is better for you in the long run.





Zest: Psst... quick, while no one's looking.
Zoe: <giggle>









Dude: ...and it's said that at the stroke of midnight the desert sand can be seen to cloud up into the air, taking the shape of the hanging man.
Rogelio: <Gasp> Ohh
Dude:... and they say that whoever has the misfortune to see it.... becomes abducted next!
Gavin: Good heavens! I couldn't live in the desert knowing that! <Shiver>





Dude: Ummm... Rogelio, could I take a DNA sample?
Rogelio: Ummmm...





Rogelio: Sure!
Dude: Really? Awesome!





Dude: You're the first person who has said yes. Hold still.
Rogelio: <gag reflection>
Dude: Oooo, sorry, a little deep there. Opps.





*Deep sigh* That was one great party.
Zest and Zoe: You can say that again!





Aww, thanks Zoe, we sure did make a mess.
Zoe: No problems watcher.





Zoe: Judging by the number of plates, <quick counting> we all averaged about three to four slices of cake and that again of chilli.
Woah! No wonder we all feel sleepy.
Zest: That and we've managed to party all night again.





Dude: Hey Zoe? Have I shown you my puppies?
Zoe: Ooo I love baby dogs.
Dude: <flexing muscles>





Night Rogelio, thanks for coming.
Rogelio: It was a blast, night watcher. Or morning, rather.





*Yawn* Dawn soon.
Dude: Yep, just got to water these then I'm heading for bed.
Nite then. Oh! Congrats on another gold medal.

I still can't believe Destinee was sent away but I suppose it's for the best. Maybe next time you can keep the alien? Good for Zest getting some romance now. Can't wait for your next update  :D

@LenaLJ , yes, it was a real killer losing my 1st dynasty. :( Still, least we can see Dude this time around. Thanks heaps for commenting.

@Cristina , yeah. It is a bit shocking but at the end of the day the abducted nooboo's are 100% alien. In other games when I have kept them they get a sad moodlet 'homesick for alien home planet" or something like that where the alien child wishes they were back on their own world. So that made the decision easier for me.  Dude's got to succeed in his requirements for ambrosia or there is no dynasty anyway. It would all end in 30 sim days or so.  :)

I'll have more updates tomorrow morning. Need to take a break now as I've been simming hard out for a few days trying to get this dynasty off the ground. Thanks for reading and commenting. Maybe if Dude get's abducted again I'll take a vote on keeping or returning the nooboo.  ;)

So much has happened! Destinee is adorable, such a shame she went back to her alien mum. I love seeing Winston at work and hope to be seeing Johnny/Zoe nooboos  :D

Ahh! So many updates, I can't keep up!  ;) I do think they could use a house. I think it is funny random objects are placed all over this giant lot.
Cake + Sims=Amazing

It is no joke that eating cake and playing sims is true awesomeness.

Chapter 17: Again? Really?


That was ... Dude? What's that noise?...Oh NO....Not again.






Don't look at the lights Winston...look at me... look at ME. DUDE!





Dude: Well, least I know how it goes eh. See you in an hour.





Oh please don't take him away...






Zesty?
Zest: Yeah?
Winston just got abducted again.
Zest: *Deep Sigh* I knew his career was going to be a problem.
Rogelio: You pulling my leg watcher?
Grady: Indeed she is not. I saw the UFO myself. Well, let's get busy tidying up this place so that at least when Winston get's back all the chores are done.
*Sigh* Good idea Grady.






Oh thank the great watcher.





Are...are you...you know? Umm...ok?
Dude: Yeah, least it wasn't a crash landing this time.
Umm... did they.. <cough> err.... are you...with... with nooboo?
Dude: No...at least, I don't really remember. I think I might go to bed though.
Of course. Everything's been done so don't worry about anything.





Morning everyone.
Dude: Morning.
Zest: Hey.
Wow, that smells divine!
Dude: Thanks, be ready in a minute.






Zest: <Chatting away about latest books plot>
Dude: <groan> OOooo my stomach.
Uh oh






Have a good day at....Oh. Are you still not feeling well?
Dude: Oh, bad stomach cramps...oooo.
Umm, think I'll tag along to your work with you after all. K?
Dude: Hmm. No... Honestly I'll be fine. Besides today I'm not really doing anything apart from brainstorming. You stay home.
O..Kaaay then. Phone me if you need to.
Dude: K.






After work....

Dude: Yep... full costumes please. No, I don't really care what mine is but NOT the hotdog ok.





That's so nice of you Gavin to let us throw our party here.
Gavin: No worries, nice to have you at ours for a change.
Nice house.
Gavin: Thanks!
Dude: Yeah, it's got walls...watcher.
I'm hearing you... I'll start designing a house tomorrow, promise.





Rogelio:<just out of shot behind the wall dancing>Who's the wee kid watcher? It's pretty late for such a wee fellow to be up at an adult's party!
Oh that's one of Zesty's kids. I'm sure he'll be going to bed soon.
Rogelio: One?
Yeah..umm, Zesty's been quite ... er...busy lately. He's got about 20 something kids around the towns.
Rogelio: OMG, that's obscene.
Umm..No! Practical, we've got a dynasty to run here.
Emma: (on the couch dressed like Grim) How on earth does he keep track of them all?
He doesn't. Basically if there is a blond kid at the park or w/e Zest knows it's one of his. <snort>





Hey! Good disguise Tylor, pretty funny coming as an astronaut. Not so sure on yours Stefan... might be a it obvious! Still, welcome!
Stephan: Thanks watcher. I bet you no one notices!
Rogelio: <pizza delivery man> Notices what watcher?
Stephan: lol, told you!
Unfathomable!





Hi Zoe, see you got the hotdog head on the maids costume glitch.
Zoe: Yeah, it was the only costume I could get to go round my nooboo bump.
Adriel:(Hotdog) I think you look pretty anyway.
Zoe: Thanks, I feel like a beached whale.





Dude: <swept up into Emma's arms> Oh mm mhmmm.
Emma: Oh!
Dude: Umm... err, while that kiss was just great, I've sort of got to go and do things as the host.
Zest: Embarrassing much watcher! Thanks for telling everyone about my family tree.
Oh! No one minds... besides you can't tell me you haven't been having fun now... eh..eh? <eyebrow wiggle at Zest>





What are you doing out here?
Dude: Emma's kinda getting to me.
Oh.<surprised> She's very nice.
Dude: Yeah, but I'm feeling pretty smothered.
Really? I thought most guys would give their right arm, for a gal like her.





Dude: I know, but I like my space, you know. I mean we work together and now she's like all over me outta work too.
I seriously don't know what to say other than, if you don't like her you could always break up I guess.
Dude: I do like her. *sigh* Oh maybe I'm just tired that's all.





Great dance moves there Don
Don: Thanks watcher.
You look pretty wired though. How many coffee's have you had?
Don: 'bout four.
I appreciate your dedication to partying all night long Zoe but if you're in labour you're excused you know.





Oh Dude! Quick. Do something. Tylor's hitting on Adriel and I don't think he likes it.
Dude: Oh jeez!
Waylon: <clown> Awkward!





Dude: So did you hear the one about the clowns that were arrested during a police raid?
Adriel: No?
Dude: Apparently there were large pockets of resistance!





Dude: Aw Zoe, I was just coming to do that.
Zoe: It's ok, I got it.
Dude: You should go put your feet up. Thanks for loaning us your house. I'll end the party eh. We've been at 'gold' for some time now anyway.





Zest: Woo! Another gold medal.
Dude: Oh YEYaa!






Dude! You should be in bed, there's only 5 hours till work!
Dude: Hmm, I'll be ok... I just really need cake.





Dude: Chocolate cake... it's calling to me....
*sigh*
