Chapter 199: A Holiday


Zahra: Opps, I forgot my suitcase...
Dude: Oh heaven's don't tell the watcher that or we'll never hear the end of it.




Nate: Right, well while you oldies muck around I'm going to get cracking.




Abi: Come on ladies, let's start relaxing!








Charlotte: I must say this really is the best spot for a holiday.
Mac: Agreed, it is just so beautiful here.




Caleb: I think we should get down there son and show them how it's done.
Julien: To be honest dad I'm pretty useless at horse shoes!




Dude: It'll be good to get the fridge stocked up, it's looking pretty empty.
Nate: Yeah, won't take me long.
Dude: Do you want a hand?
Nate: No, it's all under control, just good to have you upgrade the fridge. I can't stand that gross plastic taste you get from those cheap fridges.




Julien: Oh this is the life watcher!
I totally agree, can you roast me a marshmallow?
Julien: Sure.




Charlotte: Well, I've heard it's true... telling ghost stories at night around here will make some poor soul leave the netherfield and come and haunt you.
Abi: I don't know... netherfield doesn't sound quite right...
Charlotte: Netherground?
Nate: Umm, think I might go to bed. Nite everyone.



The next morning...

*Yawn* Morning Nate.
Nate: Morning watcher.
Nice way to start the day.
Nate: Hmmm




Nate: Keen for a walk watcher?
Sure...I wonder what Dude's up to though...be back in a min.




What are you up to?
Dude: Oh *cough* nothing, just reading the err... camping digest.
K then. See you later.




Nate: Wahooo! A real live bear!!!!
Bear: Woah, that's not the usual reaction I get!




Nate: So what's the best part of living in the forest?
Bear: *fan-bearing* Oooo I just love the crisp morning air... the sound of the birds waking up and the sounds of terrified campers as I creep up to their tents and make terrifying shadows!




Nate: My! What big teeth you've got!




Bear: All the better for eating you smiling with...




Oh for crying out loud! Who... I say WHO told the ghost story? I bet it was you Zahra wasn't it?
Zahra: No! It wasn't. I've just woken up, I don't know anything about it.
Well , I'm telling you if that ghost glitches out and we have to quit our holiday I'm going to be one grumpy watcher.
Zahra: Well, nothing new there then.




Nate: What's the hurry Pop?
Dude: Watcher's on the grump..
Nate: K, let's make a run for it. What did you this time?
Dude: I'll tell you on the way.

Chapter 200: Nate's Adult Birthday


Nate: Wait up Pop! You're running like Grim himself is after you!
Dude: Just a super grumpy watcher, far worse if you ask me!





Nate: What did you even do?
Dude: I may or may not have, accidentally or on purpose, told a ghost story this morning in the tent.
Nate: Lol, well by the time we get back the watcher will have forgotten all about it.
Dude: Very true.




Nate: No way! Fish ON!




Nate: I think our fishing competition is over before it even started Pop!




Dude: I would say lucky first cast but all I've got is an apple.




Nate: You better make that lucky first and second cast.
Dude: Lol, far out, you're on fire today! That's unreal!




Dude: Heh, well... that's all the special fish caught now. Pity the watcher isn't here in some ways...
Nate: I know, she always goes on about how long it takes us to catch anything. Hey Pop?
Dude: Hmm?
Nate: I've just had a thought... it's pretty weird that the one time the watcher's NOT with us, we catch everything nearly as soon as we cast out.
Dude: I was just kinda thinkin' the same!
Both: LOL




Dude: Umm, yeah, like I was saying, you should always stand up-wind of the flame.
Nate: ARghhh.... thanks for the tip, NOT. A little help?




Dude: Really? You're really going to try to light the fire again standing in exactly the same place?
Nate: Yep. Determined.




Dude: Lemme tell you a lil' campfire story about the lil' boy who played with matches...
Nate: Very funny.




Dude: You gotta admit, this is the life eh?
Nate: Yep *happy sigh* nothing quite like it.




Nate: And you're sure the Hermit doesn't mind us using his stuff?
Dude: Yep, all sorted.
Nate: K. I wonder where he is?




Dude: And just like magic he appears!
Hermit: Be back in a min....just make yourselves at home.




Hermit: So, that must have been my great times however many grandmother you met...Huh? Wait a minute! How does that even work?
Dude: *Cough* Umm... secret family thing...Cutting sugar from your diet helps a lot too.




Nate: Ugh, this woodworking 'thing' is harder than it looks.




Nate: Ohmygiddyaunt. I'm literally seeing stars!! Time for base camp before I knock myself unconscious.






Charlotte: Sounds like you two had a good day.
Nate: It was really great actually.
Charlotte: Well, hope you don't mind baking your own cake.
Nate: Lol, no, not at all.




Julien: So all set to become an adult?
Nate: Strangely reticent about the whole 'getting older' thing.
Julien: Happens to the best of us.




Woo! Happy adult birthday Nate!




Everyone: Happy birthday dear Naaate... (Apart from Julien who forgot the words...)




Nate: Wow! Feeling GOOD!
Charlotte: Happy birthday son.





Abi: I can't believe the watcher's letting us eat cake!
Caleb: I know, right! We've been eating pretty much what we want the entire holiday!




Dude: Just think Nate, we're only 20 days away from completing our destiny!




Nate: 'Destiny'? I that some kind of new challenge?
*Face palm* better not be.




Abi: I knew the watcher would make us pay for all this eating...

Chapter 201: A Party, A Challenge, A Farewell


Well, you ended up being chef on the last party, just like you were on the very first party too.
Dude: Yep, a full circle really.
I just hope that it's only hotdogs being roasted over there.
Dude: Yeah, kinda looks like Charlotte's doing her best to torch her son!
LoL





Nate: I'm going to ignore you mum, sorry, but I really need to finish my story.
Charlotte: Ooo Oo




Mac: There really isn't much space around the fire for roasting these dogs watcher.
Hmm, I see what you mean. Just do you best hun, we need three done.




Nate: Na, it's cool, we've got a system now watcher.
Abi: Everyone justs lifts their left arm up a tad and bob's your uncle!
Bear: He was actually. A really good guy too.




Nate: Delish! Perfectly toasted!




Bear: Tonight's been just lovely! I don't often get invited to parties.
Charlotte: Why's that Bear?
Bear: I seem to make people quite tense for some reason. I don't really understand it, I'm actually a really nice guy deep down inside.
Charlotte: Well, I'm quite partial to bears so it's all good as far as I'm concerned.




OOo, will this be the winning toss?




Err, I guess not.
Julien: Oh watcher, you broke my concentration!
 :-\




Zahra: Boy, there is just something magical about singing camp songs round a campfire...
Mac: Agreed.
Charlotte: *Happy sigh* This has been the best holiday and the best party ever.




The next day, back at home...


Charlotte: Hun, you're looking particularly gorgeous this morning.
Mal: Why thank you my love.




Mal: So did you enjoy your holiday?
Charlotte: It was just lovely.




Mal: I've had my last warning from Grim son.
Nate: Oh Dad! No!
Mal: I've lived longer than most my boy. I've lived long enough to see your beautiful mother complete her life's requirements and long enough to see you only days away.
Nate: Oh Dad, I'm going to miss you so much!
Mal: I know son. I need you to be strong for mum.
Nate: I will...*gulp* I will be Dad.
Mal: I love you son and I'm so very proud of you.




Charlotte: Your painting is coming along beautifully now love.
Mal: Well I've certainly enjoyed being able to potter about during my retirement anyway.




Charlotte: We've certainly be lucky with our wonderful son eh? Not that I'd tell him too often! lol
Mal: Lol, I think he could probably handle the praise but yes, we've been blessed eh.




Charlotte: I love you.
Mal: *Gently* And I love you.




Mal: Thank you for framing these for me.
Least I could do. It will be something for Charlotte and Nate to have once...once...
Mal: Once I've gone. I know.
You'll be missed more than you know.




Later that night...

Dude: I've heard the fishing's really good here
Nate: K, it's worth a go.
Dude: That's what I thought.
Nate: Well, if I can catch a few more angelfish... I might be able to better my museum score a little.
Dude: Sounds a plan





Nate: Hmm, doesn't seem to be much action.




Nate: Wait! I've got something! Oh, nope, false alarm.
Dude: Let's go try somewhere else. This really isn't much good.




Nate: Least I can actually see some fish here.
Dude: Always a good sign.




Grim: Hear you're close to completing your families dynasty.
Nate: You know it!
Grim: Well, I'm here to catch all the remaining angelfish so you can't.
Nate: *Grin* Is that right.




Grim: Oh yes, it's nothing personal but it is particularly fun to see a dynasty fail in it's last few hours.
Nate: I see, well... bring it on, Grim! Let the fishing challenge begin.




Grim: Was that an angelfish you're sliding into your back pocket Nate?
Nate: Might have been lol
Grim: Gah.





Grim: Well, unfortunately I have to go reap your dad.... see yaz.
Nate: Huh? What did you say?
Grim: Outties.
Nate: Watcher? What did Grim say?
*Cough, sniff* <Choked voice> Nothing hun... he just had a *sniff* family emergency thing.
Nate: Oh, right. In other words he couldn't bear to lose the fishing competition.
Yeah, that will be it. *sob cough*
Nate: Well, I didn't have the heart to tell him I already have enough angelfish to complete my museum, heh.




Watchers Note: I had been watching Nate's relationship panel as I knew from counting the days since Mal's birthday that he would be dying sometime very soon. In game Grim leaving did not coincide with Mal's death but I wrote it that way as it seemed fitting.

RIP Mal, you were a fantastic dynasty spouse even though you never lived in.

Chapter 202: The Final Chapter


Nate: Well watcher, it's time.
It sure is Nate, can't delay it any longer.




Make it a good wish Nate, last one of the dynasty.
Nate: Will do.




Happy Birthday Nate!




Nate: OMGosh! My Back!
Well, it was bound to happen, it's a genetic thing I guess.




Nate: Now I see why you guys are constantly moaning and cricking your backs...




Congratulations Hollingsworth family, your dynasty is about 6 or 7 mouthfuls away from completion.




Dude: Well done son, you did us proud.
Nate: Thanks Pop.




Mac: How do you like the taste?




Nate: It's unusual to say the least!




Zahra: Well ladies, that all our goals completed. Hard to believe really.
Charlotte: It's a lovely feeling.
Caleb: Surreal!




Julien: I'm not sure what we are all going to do next, how 'bout you Dad?
Caleb: I think I might retire now that the watcher won't be driving us so hard.




Julien: What about you Charlotte? What do you think you will do?
Charlotte: To be honest I want to see if I can summon Mal... you never know I might just be able to have my happily-ever-after!
Abi: That sounds just perfect.




Dude: Congratulations! You're immortal now too!




Here are Nate's museum items: 10 x Plates Of Ambrosia: 17,645: 17,301: 17,205: 16,573: 16,193: 16,123: 15,904: 15,569: 14,373: 13,664= Total 160,550    Stats page fully updated with all sims data

Thank you so much everyone! It has been so great to have encouragement and comments from you all along the way.  ;D  It all feels  bit strange though as Winston has been my main sim since TS4 came out... I'm not sure where to go from here! lol
I dare say Winston or some of his descendants will feature in more adventures at some point.  :)

I particularly loved seeing them all together for their last holiday.  Congratulations on the successful completion of this wonderful dynasty story.  I'm really sad it's all over because they were all so different and entertaining but I can imagine your sense of relief and triumph for completing it so well.  Now I just have to wait to see what you come up with next because I just know this won't be your last story.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Gratz! I have read your story form the backseat and have enjoyed it soo much, you made me both laugh and cry - it has been wonderful.
The way you played this dynasty your setup to compleate the goals aswell as your building skills have inspired me a lot in my own games - thank you!!
I would be fun if you could share your house if its possible  :)
Thanks again and i hope to find a new Playalot story soon.
