Go, Charlotte! She's really pretty; I'm glad we got to see her as a young adult. I bet Nate's going to be a looker, too.

@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.

Haha I love Grim. He shows up at the best times. I like how Grim is Dude's only friend that will never die either. It's kinda bittersweet  :)

@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?

@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.  ::)

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.  ;)
