Toddler Citrine: I'm the queen of the world! Er, stroller.

Lol :)

RIP Jesse, Grim really has the worst timing. Felipe shouldn't get poor Citrine's hopes up.

Uncle Felipe seriously makes some questionable life choices :o

Chapter 18- Worst. Present. Ever.

Welcome one and all to Third Time's the Charm! In the last update, Grandpa Jesse kicked the bucket and then Poppy wanted to hit Uncle Felipe with said bucket because of his terrible advice to the children. Thankfully, it didn't seem to affect them too bad because Goldenrod made it to his teen birthday.





A quick cake jump...



...and Goldenrod was now a teen.



Here is teenage Goldenrod.



For this birthday, he gained the Handy trait.



Remember how I mentioned that Grandpa Jesse was a wizard? Well, the family purchased a bunch of supplies and then Jesse shot some ice blasts at those bad boys. So, for his birthday, Goldenrod was gifted with several broken appliances to help with his supermax. Worst. Present. Ever.



I think I would cry if someone gave me a broken toilet for my birthday. Either that or punch someone.



Goldenrod spent his weekend playing with his broken equipment and his handiness skill. Monday came and he went to school. While that may not seem any better than fixing all of the broken appliances, this school day was one of the best ones. Goldenrod met one of his classmates, a girl named Justine. As school came to an end that day, Goldenrod wanted to go over Justine's house after school.



Here is the spouse checklist for Goldenrod:

Girl? Check.
House? Check.
Family in the house for gravestone? Check.
Not old and wrinkly? Check.

We have a winner and Goldenrod thought so too.



Thankfully, Justine was on board with this plan too.



Here is a shot of Justine's house. She lives with her family on the main island near the town center.



Goldenrod and Justine made their relationship official and then headed inside to do some homework together.



Back at home, things were not going as smoothly. There was a very unwelcome visitor.



That jerk took the stove!



The police arrived and the burglar was apprehended. Burglar-0 Isla Paradiso PD-1. Since everyone was already up, I figured that it was a good time for Citrine to have her teen birthday.









Here is a teenage Citrine.



She is so pretty. I think that Citrine turned out really beautiful and I love her color scheme.



I think that two birthdays, a spouse and work on a supermax skill is a good amount of stuff for one update, so that's all for now. See ya!

Those kids have amazing genes. Lucky you found a future spouse with a house and not so wrinkly, lol. Considering all his requirements I'd say those are some pretty cool birthday presents  ;D

Good job locking in that spouse early.

The game pretty much handed me a spouse on a silver platter. Not going to say no to that!

I actually wasn't planning on doing the handiness skill until later but once I saw that Grandpa Jesse was a wizard, I figured that it would make my life so much easier because he could ice blast the appliances and make two skill challenges super easy. In a way, it really was a great birthday present!

Chapter 19- Going Up in Flames

Hello again! It is time for yet another installment of the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty. There were a number of birthdays in the last update and, I'm not sure if this a good thing or a bad thing, there will be even more birthdays in this update. Woo!

Joining in on the party atmosphere was Poppy. She got a party invitation from Palmira and accepted, of course. Mom and daughter were pretty happy to see each other again. It was either the reunion with her daughter or the fact that she was completed juiced that made Palmira happy...



The kids had a party of their own to attend. Both Goldenrod and Citrine attended prom. Oddly enough, they were chosen as Prom King and Prom Queen respectively. Awkward.





Now that he was almost done with his career, Abraham needed something new to keep himself occupied. He decided to dabble with the chemistry set that his father left behind after he died.



Some random ghost lady showed up in the kitchen one night.

Citrine: Um, Goldenrod? Do you see that ghost lady floating in the kitchen?
Goldenrod: I didn't see it if you didn't see it.
Citrine: Works for me.
*Both slowly sneak out of the room*



Citrine and Goldenrod snuck out of the room in time to see Abraham coming home from a great day at work. He reached the top of his career and completed his lifetime wish. Well done, Abe!



Though he did seem confused by the whole prospect...



Goldenrod and Citrine put the whole ghosty thing behind them and worked on their skills instead. Goldenrod continued to work on his handiness skill (his supermax). Citrine decided to try her hand at inventing.



It seems she was going to need a lot of practice.



A LOT of practice.



Citrine's knack for setting herself on fire apparently rubbed off on her older brother. Goldenrod was upgrading a fireplace when it started on fire. So much for making it fireproof...



It was Uncle Felipe to the rescue! He saved the dynasty! Yay!



Uncle Felipe was not able to save some random dude who decided to check out what all of the commotion was.





So what does Felipe get as a reward for saving Goldenrod? An all expense paid trip to the Island of Grim!





Not only was that a terrible reward for his heroics, Felipe was also one day away from reaching level 10 of the culinary career. So not fair, Grim. So not fair.



Felipe: Hey, can I postpone my trip to the Netherworld? I have work tomorrow and I will become a celebrated five star chef...
Grim: Yada, yada, yada. Can we hurry this up? I have a pilates class in like ten minutes. Chop chop.



Now that Felipe and Jesse were gone, their bedroom was transformed into an inventing room for Citrine. I also made sure to install a shower to defend against the butt fires.



Speaking of fire, it was time to light up the candles on Goldenrod's birthday cake. He was ready to age up into a young adult.









Here is young adult Goldenrod.



His final trait was Family Oriented.



Thankfully, that's everyone who was slated to kick the bucket, so the next update should be Grim Free. Yay!

Grim, that was so mean, and who cares about your pilates class when a special fridge is at stake?  >:( Loved all the fires, the fun of inventing. Is it weird if a brother and sister are voted Prom King/Queen? Is it more of a couple thing? I've never really understand the whole ordeal.

Aw, one day away from the magical fridge.

I know! I so wanted the fridge of magic  :( Alas, Grim waits for no man when his pilates class is on the line!

R.I.P random dude, should teach you to stay away from your neighbors!   ;D

Seriously! I had no idea who that guy was. Even Uncle Felipe didn't seem interested in saving that guy. The worst part was that the firemen showed up after the guy died and reprimanded my sims for making a false call to authorities  >:(

Chapter 20- Photo Bomb

Hey! Welcome back to the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty. We've hit 20 chapters! Woo! *Clears throat* Back to business. So, in the last chapter, our heir, Goldenrod, became a handsome young man. Shortly after aging up, he discovered that his ladyfriend, Justine, also aged up. Goldenrod quickly called her over.



Goldenrod quickly proposed and Justine accepted happily. You WOULD have been able to see it if the maid hadn't decided to walk by right at that moment.

Maid: I'm not interrupting anything, am I? Oh a proposal! I wish I could find romance like that!



After shooing the maid away, we rejoin the newly engaged couple as they celebrated their special moment with an embrace. All together now: AWWW!

Goldenrod: Watcher?
Malley: Yes?
Goldenrod: Can we, uh, have a moment alone?
Malley: Fine.



I moved the cursor over a half a millimeter to pretend to give Goldenrod some space with his beloved. Once Justine agreed to marry him, Goldenrod sent his lady packing so that he could get down to business. He had already maxed the handiness skill, so he was now going to need to begin working on the other necessary skill to advance in his career: athletics. Goldenrod would not be maxing the skill, just in case I wanted to do that for a later generation, but he would be learning it nonetheless.



Inside, Abraham and Poppy were getting in their own "workout." In Citrine's shower. Yeah, that is not going to frighten your teenage daughter at all...

Citrine: *thinking* Just keep tinkering, just keep tinkering...



So, as you may have guessed, Goldenrod was joining the military. He looks pretty good in his uniform and Goldenrod seemed to think so too.

Goldenrod: If I wasn't engaged, hooo boy, I would be a stud muffin!
Malley: Get your behind to boot camp, Goldy.



Back in the world of sanity, it was time for Citrine to grow up into a young adult.









Here is young adult Citrine.



She gained the Eccentric trait. I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but she also gained the Over-Emotional trait on her teenage birthday. Citrine's lifetime wish is to become a Descendant of Da Vinci.



Shortly after her birthday, clad in her jammies, Citrine built her first time machine. Hooray!



Goldenrod was doing quite well with his job. Because of his high handiness skill, he was getting a promotion almost daily. Goldenrod also got some opportunities from his career, including one that required him to go to Shang Simla to learn the martial arts skill. He quickly booked a trip to China.



One annoyingly long loading screen later, Goldenrod was in Shang Simla.



Shang Simla was just plain gorgeous.



In fact, it looked even better without the limo in the middle of the picture.



For those who may not know, I actually am a martial artist. Well, a retired martial artist since I am no longer practicing. Why do I mention that? Because I can assure you that trying to kick in sandals is not a good idea.



Goldenrod: Sandals or not, I still earned my white belt, Watcher!
Malley: Um, I'm not entirely sure you can really earn a white belt. Any martial art that I've heard of usually starts with a white belt.
Goldenrod: Don't ruin my moment.



Proud of his white belt, Goldenrod went off to do some shopping and mingling with the locals.

Goldenrod: Hey there, book lady, as you can see, I have a white belt. Pretty cool, right?
Book Lady: Um, my little brother has a black belt, so...good for you?



Goldenrod only spent one day in China because travelling is limited in a decadynasty. Back at home, Goldenrod got back to work. Citrine continued working on her inventing skill and eventually maxed it.



Abraham also wanted in on the celebrations and maxed the logic skill.



With the inventing skill checked off of her list, Citrine continued working on her lifetime wish and moved back to painting.





That is all for now. Until next time!

The maid services never fail to get in the way of photos. I just had a wedding for one of the later generations and the maid seriously stood directly in front of the wedding arch when I was about to take some photos...Grrr... >:(

No kidding. That is exactly what it is like. But for martial arts, totally worth it  ;).

I love the fact that Goldenrod apparently needed to have the limo in China. You do have two feet, dude. You can walk.

Chapter 21- Going Green

Greetings once again from Third Time's the Charm! The current heir, Goldenrod, is now in the race against time to complete his requirements as his adult birthday edges ever closer...

Goldenrod: Dramatic much, Watcher? You make it seem like I haven't done any of my requirements.
Malley: What sounds better, Goldy? 'He's well on his way...' or 'it's a fight against time to complete what is required of him...'
Goldenrod:...I'm going to go to work now.
Malley: Good boy.

I guess Goldenrod decided that working all day was far better than talking to me because he worked extra hard and got his final promotion! Goldenrod was now officially an astronaut. He completed his requirements and his lifetime wish all in one fell swoop. Well done, sir!



Goldenrod: I have a white belt of awesomeness. Space aliens, fear me!
Malley: *facepalm*

The only thing left for Goldenrod to take care of was his adult birthday.









After the birthday boy located his hat that mysteriously disappeared from his head upon his aging up, he called Justine and invited her out to the beach.



They continued the tradition of getting married at the beach.







Goldenrod and Justine then sealed the deal with a kiss.



And here we are, house #4! It is quite colorful and nice. The theme for this household is green.



Justine got a makeover while Goldenrod moved in.



Justine's traits are Childish, Couch Potato, Daredevil, Diva and Easily Impressed. Her lifetime wish is to become a Vocal Legend.



Awww, they're so cute!



Justine's family seemed to think otherwise, though...
So, the lady who is screaming at nothing is Justine's sister, Marissa. The shirtless guy with a megaphone is Justine's father, Ramiro.



Marissa, despite first impressions, was actually a pretty decent household member. Her lifetime wish was Swimming in Cash and, upon the sale of Goldenrod's pocket full of red berry beans, it was completed. Definitely the future tombstone



Goldenrod and Justine had more important things to attend to. They got settled in to bed for the evening and prepared to bring in the fourth heir to the dynasty.



Chimes were heard. Yay!

The next day, I turned my attention to Ramiro. His lifetime wish was to become a Master Magician. He was already an elder, so time was of the essence. I sent Ramiro off to get a job and then to perform at the town square, which was conveniently located across the street from the Caldwell house.





The guy in the audience is way too excited for this magic show.



In the next update, we shall meet the next heir or heiress. Stay tuned!!

Lol, thanks  :) I tend to just take pictures as I go along and then put the updates together based on the photos.

I love Justine's family but let's hope the next heir doesn't inherit too much from that side xD Congrats Goldenrod! I typed Apollo at first, getting confused, lol.

I really like the next heir. (S)He does not inherit the insanity that is Justine's family. And I have also almost typed in the wrong names in my own dynasties  ::) I kept calling Soleil and Nathan Rain and Mason instead when I was typing updates...
