I am a serial stalker, courtesy of this dynasty. Thankfully, I'm on generation 10, so I can take a break now  ;D

" Iiiiiii calllll dibs on this plaaaaacceee!" haha. Good song Justine!!   ;D

Good luck to Zac and Olivine!

I was really surprised to see that there was some other guy performing with Justine. The worst part was that she would sometimes get sing-a-gram jobs to deliver to that guy, which wouldn't work because he was always performing. So irritating  :o

I didn't know Grim could climb ladders :) You'd think the robes and scythe would get in the way.

I didn't either! There was enough room in Marissa's bedroom that Grim could have done his duty there, but nope. Grim's a diva.

Chapter 26- A Good Move

Greetings, all! Today, we have a very special update here at Third Time's the Charm! What makes this update so special? Olivine and Jade are aging up into young adults. Yay!

Olivine went first.









Jade followed immediately after. At this rate, the Matsuri's will be surviving solely on cake for the rest of this household.





Unfortunate undies for both girls! Quick! To the dresser!!



I really liked the design of Olivine's teen wear, so I went with it for her young adult outfit.



Her final trait was Hopeless Romantic. For her lifetime wish, Olivine decided to do The Master of the Arts.



Here is Jade.



The short hair looked cute on Jade, but I decided to try something a little different since majority of the hairstyles looked good on her. Just like Olivine, I liked Jade's teen wear and just updated it for young adulthood.

Jade's final trait was Workaholic. That fits pretty well with her LTW of Star News Anchor.



With the birthdays done, Jade went to the newspaper office to sign up for a job. Olivine, meanwhile, got right back into painting. I mean that literally, if this photo is any indication...

Olivine: Don't you know that the best art can only be produced when the artist becomes one with the painting?
Malley: I'm pretty sure that's not how it works...



Ahh, much better.



Apparently, REALLY getting into your work is a genetic thing, as demonstrated by Goldenrod as he becomes one with the chemistry set.



Shortly after aging up, Olivine discovered that Zak did too. He apparently joined the military career.



It was party time at the Sosa household! I spy with my little eye, Poppy, Abraham and Goldenrod! While the girls were out with friends, Goldenrod headed home for a fun little party that Poppy threw.



Remember how Rudy was dumped by Olivine for Zak? Well, that ultimately turned out to be a good move because Jade had an interest in her sister's former flame.



The nice part was that Rudy seemed to reciprocate Jade's feelings and advances.





They made it official :)



Zak, unfortunately, had to dash off to work. Good work ethics and performance were extra important when your boss was your girlfriend's father (Goldenrod was his boss). So, Olivine headed home to continue working on her painting skill, which she eventually maxed. Well done, Olivine!





Amazingly, Olivine is almost done with her requirements. Stay tuned to see what happens next!

Chapter 27- Fourth Down

Welcome back to the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty! In the last update, we discovered that Olivine was extremely flexible when painting and that Jade was interested in her sister's ex-boyfriend, Rudy. Speaking of those two, things were going quite well for them.



I had to admit that they were a really cute couple and it was nice to see that Rudy would call up Jade sometimes and ask her out on a date. That really worked out well for both parties. On the other hand, Olivine and Zak were happy with each other too. They were looking forward to being together, which was right around the corner. Olivine had her adult birthday coming up and then only had a few bits and pieces of her requirements to complete before being able to marry Zak.









A million paintings later, Olivine completed her career and her requirements all in one fell swoop. Ladies and gentlemen, I now present Ms. Olivine Matsuri-Caldwell, the fourth heir!

Zak was at work when Olivine called, so she needed to kill time until he could meet up with her. She hadn't had much time to really work on her guitar skill, so that's what she started to do.



Later that evening, Zak finished his shift at the military base and he agreed to meet up with Olivine. She got straight to the point.







Zak and Olivine got married under the wedding arch installed on Poppy's property.





It was already late in the evening, but Olivine and Zak made time to celebrate their wedding night.



The next morning, it was straight to the dresser with Zak to update his wardrobe.



Zak's traits were Angler, Artistic, Dramatic, Friendly, and Perfectionist. His lifetime wish was also Master of the Arts. A perfect match? Darn right they are!



This is Zak's Mom, Ivy. He also lived with his father, Santos, and his sister, whose name escapes me right now.

Ivy: Not a great start to a new household, is it, Watcher?
Malley: Listen, I'm on generation 10 in game, so this was like AGES ago. Now, back to gardening! Those red berry beans won't plant themselves.



Zak got started on his painting skill. He quit the military career and joined the painter career, just like Olivine.



Olivine was, well, indisposed at the moment.



Generation 5 was on the way! Woo! Halfway there!!



Zak got an opportunity to deliver a painting to France, which turned out to be very beneficial for the plans that I had for this generation. He was going to be able to pick up some necessary supplies while in Champs Les Sims.





Specifically, important items that are at the nectary  ;)



And we have made it to the 5th household! Hooray! Halfway point!!! The color theme for this household will be Blue. Stay tuned to meet the next heir  ;D

From that angle, it looks like she might be becoming one with the toilet on the other side of the wall, too  :o

Thanks! Olivine was actually quite an easy heir, so that made it that less stressful!

Generation 5 certainly comes out looking unique. Jade may or may not have something to do with that...

Thanks, KRae! The worst part is, I played the game last night and forgot to check the family tree for Zak's sister's name...darn.

Thanks, hazelnut! Pilates Grim would be quite frightening...though you do always get Grim doing some interesting things in your stories, so that might not be the worst thing he could do  :o

Chapter 28- Who's Your Daddy?

On the last episode of Third Time's the Charm...

Olivine completed her requirements and got married to Zak. They moved in together and quickly began working on bringing in generation 5. We have officially reached the halfway point, which is amazing.

Stay tuned to meet the 5th Matsuri...

In today's episode, we start off with some updates on the rest of the family members. Here is Zak's dad, Santos, working on his logic skill. He wanted to complete The Tinkerer as his lifetime wish. The issue was that he was already an elder, so time was of the essence. Thankfully, he seemed to be making some progress.



Ivy, Zak's mom, used to be a fairy, but she was cured immediately after Olivine moved in. Because of her fae status, Ivy was younger than  Olivine, which was a little awkward. Father Time seemed to agree and decided to remedy the situation.



Ivy: Adult or not, I still look hot!
Malley: Peachy, Ivy. You can look as hot as you'd like, just as long as you keep crushing those grapes.



And now the most important news of the update on Zak's family members...



...I remembered Zak's sister's name! It's Clarissa! Yay!

Just kidding! Seriously, her name is Clarissa, but that's not the most important part of the update, obviously. The biggest news was that Olivine went into labor and generation 5 was about to enter into the family.



Ladies and gentlemen, here is Heir #5, Cobalt. He is a Genius who Hates the Outdoors.



The Crane house was on the small side, so I needed to make some additions to accommodate little Cobalt.



The days went by rather quickly because nothing excited happened. Clarissa worked. Zak painted. Olivine painted. Ivy skilled. Santos skilled. Cobalt was a baby. You know, the usual. Anyway, it was soon time for Cobalt's birthday and that's when things got strange...







...Yup. Cobalt has red hair. Someone get Maury Povich on the phone. Quick.



So, Cobalt looks nothing like Olivine (except for her facial structure) or Zak. Go figure. He's a real cutie, though. Cobalt has red hair and jade green eyes. I did check the family tree for both Olivine and Zak and neither had any other family members besides Jade with those genetics. Anyone know if Jade's genetics-even though she's adopted-played a role here? I'm at a loss and that's the only explanation I can come up with...



Moving on. Olivine got started with Cobalt on his toddler skills. Fuming potty in the background? Check. Perfect time for a talking lesson!



Seriously, this kid is just plain adorable.





Look, it's Clarissa! She decided to give her brother and sister-in-law a day off and spend some time with her nephew. She's mean-spirited, so I was kind of surprised to see Clarissa being so attentive to Cobalt.



The attack of the claw. You're welcome.



Instead of adopting this time around, I wanted to play with Olivine and Zak's genetics some more. Nooboo #2 incoming.



Olivine told Zak the good news and he congratulated her with a pat on the shoulder.

Malley: Great, Zak, just great.
Zak: Would you have preferred a thumbs up?



Back to business. Cobalt was ready to age up into a child.



I sense a career as an acrobat...





A shirtless Cobalt was going to have to wait for his new clothes because Olivine promptly went into labor. Happy birthday, kid.

Anyhoo, at the hospital, Olivine and Zak welcomed a little girl into the family. She was named Aquamarine. Fun fact= that is my birthstone :)



And, here is Cobalt after he was sufficiently dressed in his new big boy clothes.



He gained the Neat trait this time around.



Next time, we'll get to see the magic that is Olivine and Zak's genetics when Aqua grows up. Toodles!

Yay, the new heir somehow magically included Jade in the genetics.  That young man's quite the overachiever.  It's not just every child who will completely defy the laws of biology simply to please readers of a forum  :=)
Loved the remembering of Clarissa's name as the big reveal and Ivy' response to aging up.  Nice job making "background" characters shine.

Cobalt is just great like that, I guess! I had to highlight Clarissa in some way. First, I forgot her name. Secondly, she has some dismal traits, so I spent most of my time ignoring her hence the fact that I forgot her name. Mean-spirited grump who tries to scare/argue/annoy housemates? Not really interested.

I think adopted sims' genetics can play a role - the game seems to forget they're adopted sometimes. I'm not sure whether it's that or just the game twice selecting the same genetics from its stock of random mutation colouring, but I've certainly seen adopted relatives' traits crop up later.

Love Clarissa's choice of toddler training clothes - that really doesn't look practical for repeatedly kneeling on the floor.
