Chapter 39- Dueling Toddlers

Greetings once again from Third Time's the Charm! In the last update, we had a surprise case of twins which, as I am proofreading this, almost sounds like a bad disease. There was no logical reason for Eminence and Jose to have twins, except that the game wanted to mess with my head and drive me crazy. Will it work? Probably. At least it set me up for a later household... ;)

To start off this update, Jett and Ebony were going to be celebrating their toddler birthdays.



And Jett looks like...Emi. He has her hair and her eyes.



Ebony followed after her brother.



For some reason, Eminence thought it would be a fabulous idea to take Ebony outside and place her on the ground to age up. While waiting, Jett was learning how to talk, though he didn't seem too thrilled about it.





A congrats goes to Playalot for a correct guess! Ebony has Emi/Jose's hair and Jose's eyes.



I love this shot because Jett and Ebony just seem to be looking at each other, thinking "do we really have to learn this stuff?"



After talking, it was time for dueling potty training. Cue the Eye of the Tiger song!





Epic cuteness.



Oh right, Jose's brother whatever his name was had his elder birthday.



He looks a lot like his father as an old guy.



Old age was no excuse for either of Jose's family members I should have written down their names to not help out with the twin toddlers.



It was certainly a big sigh of relief when Jett and Ebony finished their toddler skills. Then it was play time. Jett thought it would be fun to try and scare me by hiding in the toy box. He is going to be a handful as an heir...



We'll end this update with some more adorable toddler antics.



Ebony was already proving herself to be an amazing spare, as she lectured her brother on NOT eating the building blocks. You go, girl.



Until next time! Toodles!

Chapter 40- Lady Killer

Greetings everyone! It's time for another update of Third Time's the Charm! So, let's get started:

To start off, we have some more birthdays!









Here is Jett.



He gained the Good Sense of Humor trait.



Ebony followed right behind her twin brother.









Here is Ebony. I absolutely love her color scheme.



She gained the Athletic trait.



Jett and Ebony got the usual post-birthday routine and were immediately tutored.





But, there was some time for fun. Amazingly, I can't tell if this is Jett or Ebony. With their eyes closed, they really do look like twins.



And they also both enjoyed beating the stuffing out of each other.



...and Jett seemed to really enjoy getting the stuffing beaten out of him...I worry for this boy...



In other news, Jose's brother maxed the guitar skill. I probably should go back into the file and pull up the family tree so I can figure out what this guy's name is...



To one up his son, Jose's father completed his lifetime wish of becoming a Master Thief. He seems to have had a bit of a mishap though.



Malley: Hey, Jett, whatcha doing?
Jett: Shh, watcher! Not now! I'm going to hang out with my friend!
Malley: Your girlfriend?
Jett: Yes! Er..no! I mean, she's a girl and she's my friend, but she's not my girlfriend!
Malley: Yes, but she has a house. She could totally be your girlfriend!
Jett: WATCHER!



So, this girl's name is Kiana. She has a house. Possible spouse? Absolutely.



Jett had a way with the ladies, for sure. Here he is with Kiana's next door neighbor, Nicolle.



Fun fact: Nicolle also lives in a house. Another future spouse? Jett, you have great taste!

Jett: WATCHER! YOU ARE NOT HELPING!



That's it for now! I'm going to end here because I don't how much more Jett can take  ;)

Good Sense of Humor is a great trait. I like the way they walk around laughing at their own amusing thoughts.

Jett was certainly fun to watch when he would just randomly start chuckling at his own jokes or thoughts. It was good for a laugh for me too.

No issues finding a spouse for that one.  :P

Jett's just a cutie, I guess!

Maybe one day we'll discover the mystery of the name of Jose's father.  :P

I'm going to look it up before we leave this household in the story, I promise :)

I think his name is Padre.

I'm good with that!

I made that up having recently returned from Mexico.

Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to start calling him until I actually go back into the file and check the family tree.

The twins are just great. Poor Jet, lol, what a watcher! ;)

Even though they were a surprise, I really loved having Jett and Ebony. I think Ebony was one of my favorite spares of this dynasty.

Chapter 41- Whoops!

Hello again everyone! It's been a while since the last update of Third Time's the Charm! I blame National Novel Writing Month. Anywho, since this update has been a long time coming, let's just jump right into, shall we?

First up, we have Jett and Ebony celebrating their teen birthdays.













Once the sparkles dissipated, it was off to the dressers with the twins. Jett went first.



He gained the Charismatic trait.



Here is Ebony.



I was still rolling traits for spares, so Ebony wound up with the Proper trait. Could be worse.



Emi worked with Jett to get on the honor roll.



Ebony, on the other hand, was tutored by the aptly named "padre." I'm going to find his name, I swear



After the tutoring, Jett went off to begin working on his charisma. By charisma, I mean his horrible pick up lines.

Jett: Hey, girl, I lost my number, can I have yours?
Malley: *face palm*



Jett: Hey, girl, did it hurt when you feel from heaven?
Malley: *groans, then face palms*
Jett: Go away, Watcher!!!!!!



...I'm stunned...apparently, those worked...



This is one of the girls from the previous chapters. You know, the one with a house. This is Nicolle. Apparently, she fell for Jett's terrible pick up lines.





So, one of the kids was feeling snippy one day and decided to booby trap the computer.



Poor Eminence didn't stand a chance...



Amazingly enough, I'm pretty sure that it was Ebony that planted that trap. Go figure that the proper girl is the one with the great pranks. *Shrugs* Ah, well, moving on. It was prom time. Ebony and Jett went together, but not together together, obviously. Jett went with Nicolle but, in sims tradition, Jett and Ebony were named Prom King and Queen respectively.



*Cue awkward prom photo*



Padre: Watcher! I am tired of you ignoring me and not even giving me the courtesy of learning my name.
Malley: I'm sorry, were you saying something?
Padre: Fine, I have a way to get your attention!
*Proceeds to die*
Malley: Aw snizzity snap!





So, Padre decided to up and die on me before I could go back into the game file and look up his name in the family tree. Whoops! Oh well, too late now  ::) Maybe I can learn Jose's brother's name before he kicks the bucket?

At least to Jett the pick up lines worked to get the girl...

Oh and Padre, we'll miss you even although we don't know your name. R.I.P.

Adios, Padre. Lo siento mucho!

Ha ha! I found his name! Padre is actually "Reginald" and Jose's brother is "Lamar." Yay!

Actually, I'd probably fall for Jets pick up lines too... he's a cute sim! Cracks me up that you found out 'Padre's' name once he'd died. lol

Once I saw that Padre died in the last chapter, I made sure to pull up the game that night and research the Matsuri family tree. I didn't want to seem *that* heartless!

Wow, padre has some attention seeking issues!
Ebony is lovely!!  I know Jett's the heir and I'm supposed to like him best, but Ebony's my secret favorite.  Don't tell Jett, though.

I love Ebony too, so your secret is safe with me, Pippin  ;D



Well, I am back. Not sure if you've already read my update on the Sakura's, but if not, here it is: My November was spent working on NaNoWriMo, at least until the last week. I got a call to come in for an interview for a place that I applied for a position. I went in the next week, interviewed, two days later, I got the job and then that Monday, I started at the company. Needless to say, things have been busy, but a good kind of busy  :) So, here is the long overdue update for the Matsuri's.



Chapter 42- Return of the Matsuri's

Greetings everyone! I have returned with another fabulous update for Third Time's the Charm! So, let's jump right into things because this update has been long, long overdue.

To start things off, Lamar (look, I remembered!!) completed his lifetime wish! *Cue victory music*



Next, Emi broke the sink and then tried to fix it by becoming one with the sink. I blame Goldenrod for that gene  >:(



Jett, with his intended supermax of charisma, went off in his jammies and bunny slippers to greet the populace of Isla Paradiso. Ready for a slew of returning Matsuri family members? Me too!



Bree and Cobalt got to spend some quality time with their grandson.



Who's that Matsuri? It's Palmira!





Yep, back to the bunny slippers when meeting with Great Aunty Jade.



So, the teenage years of the Mr. Bunny Slippers came to an end and it was time for Jett and Ebony to enter into the realm of adulthood.







Jett seemed pretty pleased with his grown up bod.



It was then little sister's turn.







Here is grown up Jett.



Jett's final trait was Virtuoso and his lifetime wish was to achieve Golden Fingers, Golden Tongue.



Here is Ebony.



Similar to Jett, her final trait was Natural Born Performer. As a lifetime wish, Ebony was destined to become a Master Acrobat.



Jett was not off to a good start with the whole guitar playing thing...



There we go. Much better. I didn't realize that a guitar needed a "this side up" warning label.



Ebony, meanwhile, was faring much better with her skilling and career.



In the next chapter, Jett Suave returns to woo his lady friend  ::) Stay tuned!

When I saw Jett with the guitar, I kept hearing Olaf the snowman saying, "I'm impaled."
Ebony is beautiful!  Oh, and I guess the heir is nifty too.   I don't have favorites, though (go team Ebony!).

That's what happens when you try to carry a guitar in your pocket.

Apparently  :o

Lol! I could completely hear Jett saying that like Olaf  ;D
