Congratulations! to Abi for her first ambrosia, to Charlotte for her wedding and giving birth, and to you for making it to Generation 8. Nate is a cutie.

What a handsome boy Nate is!  It's kind of sad to see such beautiful people get all wrinkly and saggy.  Ah well, one of the reasons I avoid mirrors.  lol
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Chapter 184: A Visitor


Mal: Hey! How was your day?
Nate: Hi dad! It was pretty good, nothing much happened except this really annoying girl keeps wanting to copy my work.





Mal: Aw she probably just feels a little lost, try saying hi to her tomorrow. You might be surprised how nice she actually is.




Nate: Hmm, ooo, this is tricky Dad.
Mal: Want me to take a look and give you a clue?





Nate: No way! Lol, I'm a big boy now!
Mal: K, then, play your best hand.




Oh! You're home!
Dude: Hm hmm.
Tough day huh?
Dude: Yep overrun with tourists again.
Ouch!
Dude: You know it.





Dude:Well, that made a big mess.
Um yeah! Maybe you should upgrade the tub to self cleaning eh?
Dude: Yep, that's a good idea.





Abi: Oh! *Gasp*




Abi: Oh honey, it's so good to see you again.




Justin: Oh Abi, I love you darling.




Charlotte: Dad!!
Justin: Gosh! Look at you all grown up! Love you sweetheart, how are you?
Charlotte: Good dad, real good!




Dude: Take a load off, relax for a bit. Are you hungry? Do you want anything?
Justin: *Groan* Oo, it's good to sit down. I'm good thanks Winston, it's just great to be here.
Abi: It's fantastic!




Nate: Hi you must be my granddad!
Justin: Well, hello there wee man, nice to meet you.




Dude: You know you're really missed Justin, visit whenever you can, anytime.
Justin: I know, thanks Winston. I will... if I can. How is everyone? What have you all been doing?
Nate: Mum's been working really hard, she's nearly completed everything!
Justin: That's wonderful news. And how are you going at school Nate?
Nate: I'm an 'A' student granddad.
Justin: Good for you.





Abi: Time for bed Nate.
Nate: It's been awesome to meet you Granddad.
Justin: You too Nate, keep up the good work my boy, we're all proud of you.





The Next Day...


Charlotte: Happy birthday Katelyn!
Nate: Hi Teresa and Madelynn.




Katelyn(Blue kid): My party's going to be a flop ...
Dude: Don't say that hun, we're all here to make sure you have fun.
Nate: It's not that Pop, the caterer hasn't turned up!
Dude: I'll bake you a cake sweetie.




Gosh it's dark in here.
Dude: I know.
Poor wee Katelyn, good thing you were here.
Dude: Hmm, it's no problem baking her a birthday cake.





Maci: (Blue Hat) I had my teen birthday yesterday. I didn't really want a party.
Teresa: That's ok, I probably won't have a party either.
Nate: Well, I'm just glad we're all here now. School's too busy to be able to talk to you all properly.




Nate: Come on everyone, cake time!




Dude:Make a wish Katelyn!




Nate: Woo! Happy birthday Katelyn!




Nate: Many happy returns Katelyn.
Katelyn: Thanks!




Nate: Happy birthday Katelyn, I hope you had a happy day.
Katelyn: I did Nate, thanks.




Oh! You arrived then. Nice place for the cake.
Caterer: Least I tried.
*Sigh* true.

Chapter 185: Family Time


Abi: That looks really nice Nate.
Nate: Thanks Nan, I'm making it for dad. It's a surprise.
Mac: Well, it's time for you to go pack your bag Nate.
Nate: Cool!





Mal: Gosh, Nate's already heading off without us!
Charlotte: Lol, I know, it's all he's been talking about all week.







Mal: It's so beautiful here. Part of me feels a bit guilty for not inviting everyone....




Mal: ... but part of me is quite happy being selfish, it's so lovely having you all to myself.




Nate: Hey dad, you want to go head-to-head over horseshoes?
Mal: Sure thing.








Mal: That was a pretty good toss Nate.







Nate: OOo close miss Dad.




Nate: Aw, that toss sucked.




Mal: Yuk, mosquitoes! *swipe*




Nate: Well dad, I kinda kicked your butt.
Mal: lol, I think you kinda did!








Nate: How do you know if your chef is a clown?
Mal: Dunno?
Nate: Your food tastes funny.




Charlotte: What do you call a line of rabbits bouncing backwards?
Nate: Dunno mum.
Charlotte: A receding hare line.




Nate: This has been the best day ever!
Charlotte: Agreed, it's been pretty fun.

Chapter 186: A New Skill

Nate: Pop, I've been thinking.
Dude: About what?
Nate: I want to learn how to fish.
Dude: Nice, we can go do that.
Nate: Now?
Dude: Sure, no time like the present. Let's go.




Dude: Right, so you might not catch a fish immediately. Takes patience, k?
Nate: So, how long am I going to have to wait?
Dude: Who knows! You've just got to get your line out there and wait.




Dude: That's it, get your lure right out to the far side of the stream.
Nate: Got it Pop, thanks.
Dude: K, now just wait.




Nate: Wow, this really is a waiting game.
Dude: Yep. *Nods* It sure is.





Hi Grim! How's it going?
Grim: I'm actually a bit stuck. Dude's not with you is he?
Sure, he's just over by the stream fishing with Nate.
Grim: Do you think he could give some pointers?
Dunno, I'll go ask...




Dude: Well.... you can't really move your King like that.
Grim: Why not?
Dude: 'Cos he can only move one square at a time.
Grim: But I need him all the way over here.
Dude: Hmm... still can only move him one square at a time...




Dude: There ya go. See, by using your other pieces you can win fairly, without having to resort to cheating.
Grim: Hmm, I quite like cheating though.




Nate: WATCHER!!!
I'm here! Lol.
Nate: *Excitedly* I've got something!




Oh!
Nate: Ugh... a weed fish.
Well, I'm sure it will be a real fish next time.




Nate: Thanks for your encouragement watcher.
You're welcome. That's what I'm here for.
Nate: I think I know what I want to be when I'm all grown up.
Really? Gosh! You've got ages before you need to make any decisions.
Nate: I know but I've been thinking about everything already...
Well, whatever you want will be fine I'm sure. Besides, you've got a house-full of people who all will be cheering you on.




Dude: Right, so no cheating... remember what I've taught you and may the best player win.
Grim: K. *looks at Maci* Woah! What's with the attitude Maci?
Maci: Nothing personal... just hate seeing a cheater.
Dude:*cough* Umm... it's all good here Maci, I'm sure Grim's got his game sorted...




Nate: Yeah...lost another one. *sigh*
No worries, there's plenty fish still jumping, throw your line out again Nate.





Dude: What did I tell you Maci, Grim's game was clean!
Maci: I'm impressed Grim.
Grim: Thanks. *blush*




Dude: Check these out, not bad for an old man eh?
Grim: oooOOO.
Maci: *eye roll* Really?




Grim: Thanks for the tips Dude, better run.
Dude: Thanks for the fun afternoon Grim, see ya round.




Dude: How's it going Nate:
Nate: Aw, I haven't caught anything yet.




Dude: You need to remember that every minute spent fishing increases your skill, which means that your likelihood of catching a fish goes up. Give it another go Nate, I bet you catch something.
Nate: K, Pop...




Nate: Come on fish.




Nate: I've done it watcher!
Woo! It's a cutie!




Nate: Ooo, this one feels HUGE!




Wow! That's a great catch Nate. Good job!
Nate: Thanks. *grin*




Dude: Can you go get Nate, I don't know about him but I'm starving!
K..on it.




Another great catch!
Nate: Thanks!
Dinner time by the way.
Nate: Awesome.




Dude: So how's your day been Nate?
Nate: The second best day ever!
Dude: Nice.

Chapter 187: Busy Day


Nice to see you all eating breakfast. What are you talking about?
Julien: Whether aliens are real.
Huh? What kind of conversation is that? Like, hello? Of course aliens are real.....UFO's... you know?
Zahra: Maybe it's just some sort of mass hysteria.
*Drily* Riiight. So all of Dude's alien nooboos have just been figments of my imagination.




Morning.
Dude: Morning watcher.
So... are you busy today?
Dude: Kinda, well I've got work in a minute.
I thought I might come with you.
Dude: Sure! That'll be fun!




Wow, it's been so long since I've been here. I'd forgotten how huge this place is.
Dude: Been too long watcher, let's have some fun!
*Snicker* Ok!




Dude: Oops! Takes a bit of time getting serum's correct. No worries though, you've got plenty of time to learn.




Dude: Right, off you go, through the portal and I expect a written report on my desk first thing tomorrow.
Lab Tech: Gotcha Boss.





Umm.. are you sure it's safe for him to travel to Sixam without a suit on?
Dude: Nope.
Lol




Dude: Well, it's a shame you're evil....you know what's coming, don't you?




Lady Lab Tech: Oh nooo NOOoo....
*giggle*




Dude: Lol, well, that'll hold her for the day!
Aw man! I've missed this. What's next?




OOoo, how'd your trip to Sixam go?
Lab Tech: *Traumatized* Don't ask.
*Gleeful snicker*




Dude: Hmm... that's strange, the portal hasn't shut down....




Woah!




Dude: Right, so this is my lab and as long as you don't touch the scientific equipment you're more than welcome to have a good look around....




Dude: Just need you to do one thing for me first...
Alien: Sure, just ask!




Hmm, where is she sprinting off too?
Dude: Oh, nowhere in particular... lol











Hahahha, Panic Stations! LOL




Dude!! I've just remembered something!!!




Dude: Oh yes, my spare satellite... hmm where's my remote control...
Oh man! This is gonna be great!




*Giggle*




Oh lol, panicking and imminent bladder failure... Perfect!




*Sigh* The day just goes way too quickly.
Dude: Yeah, it's been fun with you here.
Well, nice of you to chip her out.
Dude: *snicker* That's me, Mr Nice Guy.
Lol




Awww frozen and now imminent bladder failure. *Sigh* Perfect end to a perfect day.





Lab Techs to each other: Do you think the Boss'll bring her back tomorrow?
... Man, I seriously hope not, today's sucked.

Chapter 188: Charlotte's Done


Abi: You know watcher, it's a bit creepy having this skeleton right outside's the kids bedroom don't you think?
Oh...good point, I didn't really think about it from that perspective!




Nate: Would you mind if I finished my homework over at dads?
Abi: Not at all, that's a good idea. Have fun.
Nate: Will do!




Nate: Hiya dad.
Mal: Hi kiddo, great to see you.




Mal: Well, let's get your homework out the way eh?
Nate: K.








Nate: umm, you haven't got any cookies by any chance have you dad?
Mal: What kind of dad do you take me for? 'Course I have!!




Nate: Hmm... pretty good!
Mal: Hmm, maybe a tad too much baking powder...
Nate: Still my fav cookies.
Mal: Well, time to get you home eh.




Nate: Mum should be home really soon. She'll be so excited to see you.
Mal: Is that right. You know son, I think I'll be pretty happy to see her too.




Mal: This is really good son. I'm impressed!
Nate: Thanks dad, I've been doing my extra credit homework all week.
Mal: Nice, it shows. Good job.




Mal: Just watch those capital letters Nate.




Nate: You know dad, I think that I'm going to enjoy being a teen.
Mal: I'm sure you will but what's making you think about that?
Nate: Well most of my good friends are now teens and they talk about all the fun stuff they get up to.
Mal: Fair enough... just remember you've got certain requirements and goals to do too son.
Nate: I know dad.




Charlotte: You're showing my face watcher? And I'm in my daggy work clothes!!!
Lol, I know hun but you have just got your last promotion and maxed your career!





Charlotte: So what else do I need to do?
Nothing hun, just time now.




Mal: Congratulations hun, I'm really proud of you.
Charlotte: Thanks love.
Mal: Shall we celebrate?
Charlotte: After you!




Charlotte: Woo! Feeling good!




Mal: Well you know what hun? I've just realized we've got the rest of our lives just to focus on Nate and to do what we want.
Charlotte: I know, lol, it feels so good!




Mal: Thanks for the pointers Julien.
Julien: No worries.





Charlotte: Wow, that was a great work out! I'm so pumped!!
Mal: Agreed. I think I'll sleep well tonight though.

@Roxanne07 thanks. Still got a fair bit to do with gen 8 but fingers crossed no accidents happen!!  :)



So Charlotte's finished all ambrosia requirements with 5 days until her adult birthday. She has used 'hack work progress', 'negotiate a bonus' and 'make connections' to max her career. The skills were maxed out in her teen years. She has collected 10 microscope prints for her museum items so they are already placed in the museum. I will update her stats with her friends once she is an elder as they will undoubtedly change between now and then.

It stands to reason that any fruit of his loins would continue the hotness! Congrats on almost finishing! Can't wait to see that HoF entry!

@Cristina Thanks, I was so surprised to see how Charlotte turned out... I was hoping Justin's genes won through which I think they did. Her and Mal are so sweet, I've saved them into another file and I think when this is all over I'll play them (and Nate) as a happy wee family.
@KRae I will second that! Cheers!
@Magpie2012 , lol... I have chosen the spouses as carefully as possible so as to keep the black hair/green eyes. It is strange though as most of my dynasty sim's eyes change colour each time I load the game, they go from green (like Dude's) to blue/green. I thought it might be some bad CC but I took it all out and it still happened... beats me. I guess their eye colour in CAS is their 'real' colour.
@MarianT , I'm really pleased she managed to finish her requirements early enough so I could stop having to hide her face... the number of screenshots I took forgetting to do this was unreal! I think it's because I'm playing so much, trying to get to the end, that I keep forgetting stuff!
@Roxanne07 , thanks. The interactions to help bump up work performance really make a difference.  :)

Chapter 189: An Unexpected Visit From Grim


*Sharp intake of breath* What are you doing here?




Grim: Just a social visit watcher.
O..Kaaay....







Grim: So how's everyone going?
Caleb: Good thanks Grim, you?
Mal: I might just head upstairs... err... things to do.
Grim: Mostly good. Work's been a bit quiet recently.




Grim: Hmm, I don't think I do want this O.J. It's the 'leaking thing' that I can't be bothered to deal with....
No worries, just chuck it in the dishwasher.




Grim: Come on Dude, let's live dangerously for a change!
Dude: Lol, if you insist!




Grim: Ooo, lovely and warm.
Dude: That's good 'cos there's no way you'd get me doing this otherwise!




Dude: I must say, I seem to be a lot more nekked than you are there Grim!
Grim: Oh no.. this is a nekked as I get..... seriously... this is wild!




Dude: O.K. Well, I'm not going to debate body states with ya! lol, this is pretty weird.
Grim: Well, you only live once, or in your case, forever.




Grim: Hmm, I'm a bit peckish... do you mind if I cook up something Julien?
Julien: Nope, knock yourself out!
Grim: Thanks.




Zahra: Hehhe, grilled cheese watcher... lol, and you can't say anything 'cos he's a guest.
Hmmff... a moment on the lips...all I'm saying.




Grim: Breakfast is ready!!




Charlotte: Well, this is a turn up for the books!
Mac: Yeah, still, nice to have a break from the usual routine.




Dude: Oh my gosh! Grilled cheese for breakfast! My all time absolute favourite!
Nate: Calm down Pop, you might need Grim for something more serious at this rate!
Charlotte: *Grin*




Julien: So, not being rude, but where do you actually put your food?




Nate: This is so going to blow everyone else's morning news outta the water!




Nate: So Mr Grim, could I ask you a few questions... for my school news?
Grim: Sure.
Nate: Are you actually dead?
Grim: No.
Nate: Do you like your job?
Grim: Mostly.
Nate: Could I have your autograph?
Grim: Of course!




Grim: Wow, for a dynasty house this is sure grubby... ewww.
It's all the juicemaholics we have in the house...
Grim: Excuses watcher.




Grim: Oo, tricky opening move.




Dude: Hmm, not sure that move is strictly legal.




Dude: Still, that's meck chate anyway.
Grim: Ughh, when will I ever beat you!
Dude: Lol, practise makes perfect Grim my old buddy.




Dude: Gotta run.
Grim: Have a good day a work hunney.
Dude: *snort* Ta!




Grim: Oo cool! I've always wanted to test run one of these.

@sdhoey, yup, just got to love it when Grim turns up..
@KRae , lol if only my sims would clean up like he does.
@KTK10 , I've had those huge Grims before... I just take them up into my gym... lol
@Cristina , I hadn't actually thought about Dude's friendship with Grim like that before, but you are quite right. I guess that's why they are basically BFF. Actually maybe I should have Dude make that official. I'm not sure if you get anything 'special' for being Grim's BFF...

So, how did I get Grim to visit... well, when I opened up my game yesterday another two household had been added to my game. I normally make Dude go introduce himself to new households as I may need them or their house for a party etc. Well.... you could've knocked me down with a feather but the Maxwell household is actually Grim. And not just a random Grim but THE Grim. The one that has been in my game reaping everyone right from the beginning. I know this as I saved my dynasty into another file and went and played with Grim just to see.

In Grim's relationship panel are all the reaped dynasty spouses and the dead townies that my dynasty sims knew (The SKL descendants etc) and my dynasty sims with a few random townies thrown in too. His skills are fitness L7 (I guess from all the mentoring Dude has given him over the course of the dynasty) and a smattering of other skills all around L3-4.

I'm quite nervous about this as during the GR trip Malcolm actually burnt to death when he went to grill burgers. Charlotte couldn't put him out... I don't know why but every time I clicked it just said 'can't do this due to a fire'. Anyway Grim turned up and then just stood there. I played on for two whole sim days as I couldn't save, save as or enter build mode. Eventually I had to give up and so I quit without saving and rolled back to the previous save. (With the Team's permission.)

Now I'm wondering if Grim has lost his reaping abilities because the game has placed him into a house. I'm not 100% sure that he was in a house while we were in GF... as I didn't check for new households that day.

Another strange thing occurred when Abi was drinking the science serum that makes you BFF with Grim temporarily. Normally when you drink it Grim turns up and bro hugs you etc and it shows in your relationship panel as being BFF. It was moments before she needed to blow out her candles and despite making her drink 3 of the serums Grim never showed and her relationship didn't increase...

So basically I'm wondering if the game will spawn another Grim when someone dies or if my game is seriously glitched out now that The Grim is in a house. I think I'll give up completing a dynasty, for a while, if this one has glitched out so close to the end to be honest. I guess the upside of this is now I have a non-cheated Grim in a house that I can play with.

So...long story short, that was how Dude was able to invite Grim to hang at the current lot... because now he just seems to be a 'normal' household sim.

Sorry to hear that Playalot, can't you save the sims and place them in a new save due to the fact the game is having a strange glitch or is that against the rules?
