I, too, have never seen that happen. If some spicy food is a sim's favorite, I have them eat it. Maybe I've just been lucky.

Cobalt had made something spicy, presumably ceviche, that the family had for leftovers one night. I've seen them do the breathing fire thing many times before, but that was the first time that anyone was ever set on fire. That was the unfortunate result  :o

So many glitch moments and fire humor!  Quite the delightful update.

I wasn't sure if I was going to include that whole "Aqua-died-from-her-mother-breathing-fire" thing since my game crashed and it technically didn't happen, but I had the pictures, so I went with it. Glad you liked it, Pippin  ;D

Having an off day? I should say so...lol

No kidding  :o

The worst part was that Aqua actually died as a result.

Er, what???!!!  That's horrible  :'(

I know! Worst way to die. Period.

Chapter 32- The Mystery Woman

It was crisis averted in the last chapter after poor little Aqua avoided being barbecued by her fire breathing mother. This chapter, we start up off on a different note with, wait for it...a mystery! Let's all channel our inner private eyes and spy on the newly YA Cobalt.



Look! There he is with that mystery lady!! Let's all hide like sim private eyes do: by remaining completely out in the open with a pathetic attempt to hide ourselves, courtesy of two hand held plants. Fool proof.



Well, it appears that Cobalt has decided that this mystery lady is the one for him-

Cobalt: Watcher, she's not a mystery lady. You found that she lives in a house and is single so she'd be a perfect spouse-
Malley: I'm a mystery writer, kid. Work with me here.



Cobalt decided to be a killjoy and announce that his mystery lady is, in fact, not a mystery. Her name is Bree Rushing and she is the intended spouse for Cobalt.



It was a beautiful place for a proposal, for sure.



Back at home, things were not quite as pretty. I think Zak was trying to play catch, but I'm not entirely sure.





Well, whatever he's doing, he seems pretty happy, so I'll let him be.



It was a good thing because my camera was panning over to the kitchen anyway. Clarissa was celebrating her elder birthday.





The first thing she wished to do with her old wrinkly self was to retire from the military. Great. She was going to be in the household 24/7. Great.





Aqua must have sensed my frustration and decided to spend one of her mood swings booby trapping the house.



I noticed and immediately sent Clarissa to, um, "check out" the sink.



Clarissa: You knew that was going to happen!
Malley: What? Me?  ;D



Clarissa wasn't the only victim. Ivy also fell for the toilet prank set by Aqua.



As disappointing as it was that Aqua couldn't prank Clarissa anymore that Aqua was no longer a child, she seemed quite thrilled to be celebrating her young adult birthday.



Malley: Don't get too close to that fire, Aqua...







Here is young adult Aquamarine.



Her final trait was Shy. Aqua decided to become a Forensic Specialist: Dynamic DNA Profiler. A girl after my own heart!



That's all for now. See you next time  ;D

Loving this story and your writing style is wonderful!!  I'm still new to the whole forum thing but wanted to say hi!  I had to delete my other username (katherineghale) because I made it on the tapatalk app which completely crashed my phone  :'(.  So I'm back reading the old school way.  Just glad I was able to find the stories I was reading before!  Can't wait to see what Chrissa will be up to in her old age.  Maybe Grim will take her sooner rather than later?  ;)

Exactly. I'll have to put that in the next story I write about my PI character  ::)

If it wasn't for the annoying routing issues and need to drive a boat everywhere, Isla Paradiso would be a pretty awesome place.

I knew what you meant, so we're good  ;)

If Cobalt had just taken off his glasses, we never would have recognized him.

Totally. That would have fooled everyone!

When it happened in game, I didn't think too much of Aqua leaning into her candles. Now, it's kind of funny in a really cruel way... :o

Chapter 33- Her Royal Highness

Greetings from the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty!!! Cobalt has been working tirelessly on his requirements over the last few chapters and has now completed all of his duties, save for one: reaching his adult birthday. I think we should remedy that immediately.

So, the first thing that Cobalt did after posing for his pictures was to contact Bree and ask her to meet him at the beach. Of course, when Cobalt got there, someone else was waiting for him.



Well, this isn't awkward. Cobalt and Bree exchanged vows while Goldenrod just stared at them creepily...





I now present Mr. and Mrs. Matsuri-Rushing!



The Rushing's have a pretty fancy house. I approve of this location. On a separate note, the color theme for this house is purple.



Before heading to sleep, Cobalt and Bree got started on bringing generation 6 into the dynasty.



Here is Bree after her makeover the next day. She had the pukey green hair and I refuse to have that pollute this dynasty attempt. I moved the color slider over slightly, resulting in a cute brownish/reddish mix with highlights.



I'm not interfering with genetics in any way, but I made an exception in this case. Bree redeemed herself by having purple eyes. I have my fingers crossed for the purple house heir to have purple eyes.



The other member of the Rushing household was Bree's mom, Griselda. Bree's father died before Cobalt moved in. Her lifetime wish was Swimming in Cash, so that was quickly completed after selling off some red berry beans and such.



Since her LTW was now completed, Griselda decided to spend her free time fishing.



Back at home, Bree got up at some completely unreasonable morning hour to stare at her wedding ring...



...and also to confirm that generation 6 was on the way!



Bree's traits were Good Sense of Humor, Brave, Loves the Outdoors, Virtuoso, Childish and Nurturing. Her lifetime wish was Alchemy Artisan. Since that was the case, Bree spent majority of her pregnancy at the spa or playing with the alchemy station.



She also got some at-home spa treatments, courtesy of Cobalt and his massages.



To the hospital we go! Yay!





Everyone, welcome her royal highness, Eminence Matsuri-Rushing. Her traits are Genius and Excitable.



Eminence's favorite color is white, which compliments the color purple nicely. The room above the garage was transformed into a nursery for little Emi.



Any guesses on who Eminence will take after? Post if you'd like to share!

It would be nice to have those eyes continue. I do the same thing with the yucky green hair. It's the only time I mess with the genetics.

There is an heir with purple eyes. I won't say when  ;)

I had a spouse in my Jolina dynasty that had that hair color. His name was Luke, so I called it the "pukey Lukey." That hair would not go away. Generation 3 got that hair color and it persisted throughout the generations, even when I had to town jump, courtesy of a very bloated file. To summarize, I hate that hair  ::)

That is a nice house.  I'll have to go looking for it the next time I play in Isla Paradiso.

What were EA thinking of with the greenish hair?  It's not exactly a normal colour.  I'm another one who gets rid of it whenever possible (with the occasional exception of green-skinned Sims, who can make it look OK).

I know, right? It looks okay on some sims, but I wasn't going to let it worm its way into this dynasty. I let that happen in my Jolina dynasty and it did not end well :(

Fingers crossed that Emi gets those purple eyes!

I love the purple eyes so, so much. I had my fingers crossed too while waiting for Emi to age up.

Seriously, Goldenrod just stood there for a few minutes straight, just staring at Cobalt...way to be the creepy grandfather, Goldenrod...
