Chapter 22: Magic Burritos

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the 22nd installment of Third Time's the Charm! This is going to be a very musical update! Okay, well, not literally musical since you can't hear the singing or background music, but musical in spirit, I suppose...

Justine: Can you quiet down? I'm trying to perform here!
Malley: My bad.



Justine had joined the singer career in the hopes of one day achieving her lifetime wish of becoming a vocal legend. Like her father, Justine made use of the park across the street from her house to perform and boost her career performance.



Back at home, Marissa took over the gardening duties. She also decided that she wanted to work in the business career and was now employed under our favorite businessman, Brick Goldberg!



The famous singer, known as Jazzy Justine, came home early from performing and made a mad dash to the bathroom. No, it was not Marissa's cooking that caused her nausea. Generation 4 was on the way!



One of the perks of professions was that there was no maternity leave! Justine went out and continued to perform. For some reason, she decided that this lovely plant was a wonderful place to sing from.





Hey, whatever works, I guess. Anyhoo, Justine and Goldenrod finally had a chance to see each other after Goldenrod came home from his bazillion hour shift as an astronaut. Justine broke the good news to him.



Goldenrod was thrilled and they had a little celebratory lunch at the bistro together. After lunch, Justine headed straight over to the park to continue performing. She actually had an audience this time.



I'm pretty sure that Justine gave this man a message to please change his clothes. The purple leisure suit has got to go.



Justine also did some performing for a very special someone  :D





I guess the next heir wanted in on all this celebrating because Justine went into labor a short time later.



Justine and Goldenrod were now the proud parents of a little girl.





Everyone please welcome Generation 4 of the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty, Olivine Matsuri! Olivine is Artistic and Excitable.

Goldenrod was utterly smitten with his little girl.



He decided to take a potion to ensure that he would be around for a while to see little Olivine grow up and complete her requirements.



While Goldenrod was done aging, Justine was aging down. She took a young again potion.



Her hair also aged down too, judging by the loss of her headband.



Everyone was very happy to have Olivine in the family now. Ramiro tried to take his granddaughter to the park to perform with him.

Ramiro: Now, watch in wonder and amazement as I pull my beautiful little grandnooboo out of this hat...
Malley: I'm not sure that it's the best of ideas...
Ramiro: Quiet, Watcher, this is going to be amazing!



It was Marissa to the rescue. I sent her over to the park to bring little Olivine home before she became a part of Ramiro's magic act. There are no magic burritos in this household, sir!

Marissa: Yeah, woo!
Malley: Thank you, Marissa. It's nice to know that there is someone in this household that agrees with me-



Malley: Oh, it's your birthday. Nevermind.



Marissa was now an elder. She had already completed her lifetime wish so she was well on her way to becoming the tombstone enjoying her golden years.



That is all for this update. In the next update, we will find out what little Olivine looks like. Any guesses on who she'll resemble? You can post your guesses if you'd like to share  ;D Goldenrod has blond hair and brown eyes and Justine has black hair and olive eyes.

See you next time!

No guesses from me. I'm baffled by sim genetics.

Just wait until generation 5. I seriously wanted to call Maury to find out how on earth this kid got the genetics (s)he got  :o The weird part is that, I'm currently on generation 9 in game, and that particular gene that confused the heck out of me has not shown up again. *scratches head* sims genetics makes my head hurt...

I think she will be a mix between Justine and Goldenrod.

She definitely turns out to be a mix of the two. How that combination works, you'll have to wait and see  ;)

What Olivine does inherit from Justine actually sticks around in the dynasty for a very, very long time.

Chapter 23: Class Dismissed!

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty. So, as some of you may know, I am teaching myself Japanese. Yesterday, I was poking around my Japanese dictionary and discovered that "Matsuri" (pronounced "mah-sue-ree") means "festival" or "feast" in Japanese. I thought that was pretty interesting. That is all for our Japanese lesson for today. Class is dismissed!

On to the story!

Here is the moment that everyone has been waiting for: Olivine's birthday!





And there she is, little Olivine! She is essentially a miniature Justine, but she has a little bit more of Goldenrod's unique non-pudding face.



Regardless of who she looked like, Olivine was Goldenrod's little princess.



He got started on her toddler skills right after her birthday, which allowed Justine to go out and continue working on her singing career.







In other news, Ramiro had discovered the ultimate magic trick: turning himself invisible.





This amazing trick drew kind of a crowd. Citrine stopped by to check out Ramiro's act.



Having a new baby in the household was exhausting. Justine did try to keep up with her career while raising Olivine, but sometimes, her exhaustion got the best of her.



Lady: This is the congratulations I get for my promotion?



After a good night's sleep, Justine was back on her feet.



Here is the obligatory Attach of the Claw shot for this generation.



Malley: Um, excuse me? Why did the camera just pan away from Goldenrod and Olivine?
*Pans to Ramiro*
Malley: Yep, that's probably not a good sign.



Despite the psyched face on the guy in the crowd, this was not a good reason for the camera to pan over to Ramiro.



See what I mean?





RIP Ramiro Caldwell.



Back at home...things were a little strange.



Things did get back to normal when it came time for Olivine to age up into a child.







Here is child Olivine.



She gained the Perfectionist trait.



That's all for now. Until next time  ;D

Going off that ladder shot of Olivine, I'd say she's auditioning for the role of Mr. Fantastic or Elastigirl.  Another lovely update  :=)

At least Ramiro completed his lifetime wish, unlike Felipe who died one day away from completing his career and giving me the fridge of wonders  >:(

Ah, Ramiro, you will be missed. You were a very "special" magician.

Definitely special. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, that's still up for debate.

For some reason, Goldenrod and Justine had a habit of taking Olivine up the stairs to the attic, I guess you could call it, even though it was an empty room at this point. Olivine must have gotten tired of being left up there and contorted herself to get down the ladder. See? Ramiro was right: she was a magical burrito!

Chapter 24- Feeling Jaded

Hello fellow simmers! It is time for another addition to Third Time's the Charm! I am very excited to say that I have reached generation 10 in game and should be finished soon as long as I don't screw up. So, hopefully, the Matsuri family will make it into the Hall of Fame and then we can have a "matsuri" of our own!

We will now return to our regularly scheduled program.

Olivine got started on her future supermax skill. I had no plan for what heir was going to max what, so that way I could remain flexible in case some skill would be easier in one household versus another. I decided that since I hadn't done anything artsy yet, Olivine would be my painter.



While Olivine was upstairs starting on her requirements, Goldenrod and Justine were adding to the household. They adopted a little girl who I named Jade.



After an embrace and a hearty "welcome to the household," it was off to the dresser for Jade.



I was excited to see that Jade's eyes matched her namesake. What luck!



She already had some decent traits when she entered the household. Jade was an Angler, Daredevil and Disciplined. Not too shabby.

Now that Jade was done with her makeover, she went upstairs to introduce herself to her new sister. Olivine was quite excited to have a sibling.



It was really sweet to see that Jade rolled a wish to learn the painting skill shortly after meeting Olivine. They became two peas in a pod.



The girls were inseparable. Instead of squeezing into one tiny room, I moved Jade and Olivine upstairs into the attic. There wasn't much in there because I wasn't sure what Jade would be doing at this point and Olivine would be spending most of her free time downstairs in the newly designated art room.



The girls got ready for their first day of school, though they didn't look too thrilled about it...

Jade: Why are we the only ones on this bus?
Olivine: The other kids were smart and decided not to go to school. I have to go because I'm a dynasty heir and I need to get on the honor roll.
Jade: Either that or the bus driver is a public menace and they're scared to ride the public transportation with her. I mean, she did a donut in front of our house with the bus and nearly took out our mailbox (no kidding).
Driver: I heard that.
Jade: Oops.



At home, Justine was performing to no one in particular. Does that count toward her job performance? It better.



Thankfully, Olivine and Jade made it home safely with the bus driver that somehow got her license even though she never passed driver's ed. Goldenrod helped the girls with their homework.

Goldenrod: And that's why the Isla Paradiso Dolphins team will win the Simly Cup this year.
Olivine: That's peachy, Dad, but I asked you what was the name of the founder of Isla Paradiso.
Goldenrod: Um, go Dolphins?



Justine was out at work, performing a sing-a-gram. Here, she was performing for a criminal? Wait, what? No, just kidding! It's actually Palmira, who is dressed up for work.



Holy returning guest characters, Batman! Justine was out performing in her jammies and was visited by her mother-in-law.

Poppy: *thinking* Great song, but I question her choice of wardrobe...



Birthday time! Olivine got on the honor roll and so did Jade, so both girls were ready to enter their teen years. Olivine went first.







Jade followed after Olivine and had her first birthday with the family.







Here is teenage Olivine.



Now that she is a teenager, it is a little more obvious that her features are unique. I think that she is quite pretty and was one of the heirs that I really liked in this particular dynasty. She gained the Hates the Outdoors trait, which is a good thing because she was going to spend most of her life locked up in the art room.



Here is teenage Jade.



I decided to leave her with the hair she aged up in because it looked pretty good on her. Rolling traits, she gained the Charismatic trait this time around.



I think two birthdays is a good place to finish for this chapter. Until next time  ;D

I don't think that the name "Jade" could have fit her any better  ;D

Chapter 25- What Happens at Prom...

Hey there everyone! It is time for another installment of the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty. So, Olivine and Jade aged up into teenagers in the last chapter. Olivine was already working on her painting skill, but Jade hadn't quite narrowed down what skills she would want to learn. After updating her wardrobe, Jade rolled a wish to learn the charisma skill. Well, wish granted.



I'm not 100% sure what she's talking about, but those faces would certainly frighten me...



Olivine decided to join the painter career. A wise choice.

Olivine: Well, there's not much that really requires painting as a skill, so it's the logical choice.
Malley: Just take the compliment.
Olivine: Okay.



Olivine was already a decent painter, so when she began selling her paintings, she was able to fly through the stages of her career rather quickly.



Speaking of careers, Justine decided to do a performance outside of the tattoo parlor/stylist place thing. And, apparently, she wasn't the only one. There is a guy just past the steps that's performing as well.

Justine: I call dibs on this place.
Malley: I don't think he heard you. Try singing it.
Justine: Iiiiiii calllll dibs on this plaaaaacceee!



The guy was frightened off convinced to leave, so Justine had the audience of one all to herself. Back at home, the girls were being far more productive. Olivine, shockingly, was painting. Jade was continuing to try her hand at some skills. In addition to the charisma skill, she also rolled a wish to learn the writing skill. I let her try it out and Jade seemed to really enjoy it. In fact, she ended up rolling a wish to become a Star News Anchor. You know what? It seems fitting. *Clicks wish* Lifetime wish selected.



Malley: Hey Jade, I think I have your first news story...



Alas, it was time for Marissa to go spend some quality time with Grim.



Grim: Those bed sheets with that table? Ugh! Marissa Caldwell, we cannot do this in that room!



Yep, Grim decided to be a diva and take ghosty Marissa upstairs to the girls' room to take her to the underworld. Go figure.



The next day, the girls were to attend prom. They both still had the mourning moodlet, but I made sure they went because it was an opportunity to go spouse hunting a fun time.



Jade decided to dress up while Olivine chose to stick with her everyday wear. Hey, whatever works.



The girls had a fun time at prom. Olivine was named Prom Queen. I really thought it was going to be Jade because she was more of the charismatic one. Maybe they took back the crown because Jade got into a fight over something or other. Regardless, the girls did have a great time and you'll see why in a few screenshots  ;)

But first, Justine had her adult birthday again.



Once she dusted off the birthday sparkles, it was back off to work. Justine was really close to completing her lifetime wish, so she was taking every job that she could. Here she is, performing a romantic ballad for Rei and Harley. AWWW



Rei seems into it. Harley, not so much.



Later that same evening, Justine performed for Persimmon.



That was it for jobs for the time being, so Justine went home to spend time with the family. However, the girls were out when she got there. Apparently, what happens at prom, doesn't always stay at prom. Olivine got a romantic interest at the prom. His name was Rudy. Home? Check. Home is a houseboat? Deal breaker.



So, I decided to let Olivine hang out with Rudy and see if she would roll any romantic wishes for him. If she did, I could maybe survive living on a houseboat for a generation. Maybe.





There really weren't any romantic wishes that came flooding in, but Olivine and Rudy did go steady.



It was shortly after they decided to give their relationship a try that Rudy aged up into a young adult. Hmm...he's almost an entire age group ahead of her. I'm not sure if that's going to work...Justine, why don't you enter the nice people while I figure out what to do?



Lifetime wish completed. Hoorah.



Aaaannddd, I'm back. So, I stalked thoroughly examined some of Jade and Olivine's classmates and discovered that there was another young man that lived in a household. His name was Zackary Crane. In fact, there he is, looking longingly at Olivine. How creepy sweet!

So, Olivine sent a quick break up text to Rudy and then turned her attention to Zak.





She immediately rolled some wishes to kiss Zak, date Zak, etc. I think she found "the one."



Let's give them some alone time. See you next time!!

It's always amusing how we end up stalking potential spouses.  I will say I'm sad that Jade can't be the heir as I find her very endearing.  I hope she stays part of the storyline once Olivine finishes her requirements and moves in with Zak.

Jade was certainly one of my favorite spares in this dynasty. She does show up later on, which was fun to see. I also really liked the spare in generation 7's household. (S)he was pretty cool too.

*Sigh of relief* You really don't want to try to live in a houseboat if you can help it. I can hardly even play in Isla.

I know! I am not a fan of boats in real life so I really didn't want to torture myself by having generation 5 live in a houseboat. Actually, Isla Paradiso hasn't been too bad for me. I had a close call where I thought I was going to have town jump around generation 8 (things got glitchy and problematic temporarily), which would have been disappointing to have to leave after so long. Well, generation 10 is a few days away from aging up into a child, so I'm hoping I can stay the last little bit and finish where I started  ;D
