I imagine a very awkward moment when the Prom King and Queen were announced.

And the end of the story is on the horizon...


It's funny to imagine what their faces would be when that announcement was made  :o

This story is just so sweet and cute  :=)
When I saw the "going platinum" title, I thought someone was getting their hair dyed.  Boy was I wrong!

I have to keep you on your toes, Pippin!

Chapter 54- Party Time!

Who's ready for some birthdays? I know I am! First up is our heir, Slate.



Izzy has taken a liking to her formal wear, hence why she's wearing it in this picture...







Clayton decided that the best way to celebrate his daughter's birthday was by making her ears bleed with a party blower thing.





Thankfully, she aged up fine.



Here is young adult Slate.



His final traits were Athletic, Brave, Disciplined, Family Oriented and Workaholic. Slate's lifetime wish was Perfect Mind, Perfect Body.



Here is young adult Crystal. She turned out quite lovely.



Her final traits were: Good, Genius, Bookworm, Ambitious and Hates the Outdoors. Crystal's lifetime wish was to become a World Renowned Surgeon.



And let's make it a hat trick of birthdays, shall we?







Here is Platinum.



His traits were Excitable, Virtuoso and Easily Impressed.



In addition to working on his athletic skill, Slate also began working on his martial arts skill, since they kind of go hand in hand.



Black belt, he is not.



While Slate embarrassed himself practiced, Izzy worked with Platinum on his school work.



He, like his mother, was very artistic.



Despite the numerous bumps and bruises, Slate powered through and actually began to look pretty good at Sim Fu.



But it was time to hang up his belt and uniform and hang out with his lovely lady friend.



As it turns out, Tasha aged up not long before Slate did so, now that they were both young adults, they were able to take their relationship to the next level.







Congrats, Slate! Let's end the chapter here to let the happy couple celebrate. See everyone in the next chapter!

Wow, I've really missed out quite a lot. Congrats on all the birthdays and the absolutely gorgeous simmies! Slate's got the most amazing eyes! And, Crystal actually aged up into a (sort of) acceptable outfit and hair and not the cruddy unique outfits that EA comes up with.

Chapter 55- What a Gem!

Greetings! It is time for chapter 55 of the Matsuri Greenwood DecaDynasty. In the last chapter, Slate and Crystal reached young adulthood, so it was time for the two of them (specifically Slate) to work toward achieving their requirements/lifetime wishes. With Slate's increase in the martial arts skill, he was able to break space rock blocks and get gems. Izzy, being the artsy type, wanted to make those gems into fancy, valuable pieces.





Crystal, meanwhile, rolled a wish to learn the martial arts skill. So, I let her do it. As a martial artist myself, I do not recommend practicing in heels and/or a dress.



Slate became a police officer and got an opportunity to meet up with some of his neighbors in Isla Paradiso.



By neighbors, I mean relatives. Here is Rei.



And Olivine.



Later that night, Platinum became a teen.









A pudding face, but a good looking kid nonetheless.



I was rolling traits for Platinum and he ended up getting a lot of artsy traits, which was fitting stating that his mother was Izzy.



While Platinum was artsy, Slate was logical. He maxed the logic skill and completed his lifetime wish in one fell swoop.



Despite having already maxed the athletic skill, Crystal decided that Slate needed to be trained...



In between all the skilling and promotions, time flew by. Platinum was ready to become a young adult.







Platinum's traits were Artistic, Virtuoso, Easily Impressed, Excitable and something else (apparently I only wrote down four traits on my notes...). His lifetime wish was Golden Fingers, Golden Tongue.





Moments later, Slate seemed stunned that it was time for his adult birthday.





It was a good thing, though, because it was one of the last things Slate needed to complete his requirements.

I think that was Clayton's father's hair. I don't have any pictures of him because he died before Izzy moved in/got with Clayton, but I think that's where that unfortunate hairstyle comes from  :o

Chapter 56- The Final Heir

This chapter is a very momentous one. We will be meeting the final heir in this chapter! *Confetti* Yay! But first, we need to have a wedding!

Slate called up Tasha and they got married on the beach.







Here is the lovely Miss Tasha. Her traits are Great Kisser, Dramatic, Family Oriented, Good and Hopeless Romantic.



And what is her lifetime wish? Surrounded by Family...oh dear...



First order of business for the happy couple was to work on bringing in the final heir. A difficult task, for sure  ;)



Let's give them some alone time...



The house got a bit of a makeover because it was pretty gnarly, and not in a good way. Anyhoo, let's meet the rest of the family. This blond lady is Tasha's mom. Her name is Victoria.



And the man with absolutely no sense of style (he must have decorated the house too) is Tasha's father, Deshawn.



Finally, we have Tasha's younger brother, Junior.



Apparently, Tasha decided to introduce you lovely readers to the toilet...yuck.



*Camera pans* Oh, thank goodness. It seems that the first day in the household was Deshawn's birthday.





Amazingly, he gained a better sense of style as an old guy.



*Camera pans...again* It was also Victoria's elder birthday too. Well, that worked out well.







With Tasha not having a career oriented lifetime wish, I was going to let her learn whatever skills she wanted to.

Tasha: I want to garden!
Malley: Wish granted, dear.



It wasn't only the garden that was growing!



Slate, the ever dutiful hubby, would autonomously give his wifey back rubs. Don't wear out your hands, Slate, you've got four more kids to pop out, so that means a ton more back rubs.





While tending to her garden, Tasha went into labor.

Tasha: I thought nature was supposed to be calming!
Malley: Well, no one is outside panicking, so, yeah, it seems to be working.



Anyway, it was off to the hospital to bring in the final heir to the dynasty!



And why yes, that is Citrine coming to visit her great-great-great-great niece.



Everyone, please welcome the final heir to the Matsuri-Greenwood DecaDynasty, Miss Azure Matsuri-Velazquez!

The theme for this household, by the way, is rainbow, so the surrounded by family wish should be a pretty colorful one  ;D

Chapter 57- Don't Look Behind You

Greetings all! In this chapter, we find Slate and Tasha working on bringing in the next member of the family.



Camera pans...oh thank goodness...Junior was having his adult birthday.





It was a good thing that Slate and Tasha were going to have multiple kids because it seems that Slate was going to need a lot of practice. He didn't get how that whole baby swing thing worked.



Baby #2 was confirmed to be on the way!



Early one morning before everyone had to run off to work, Azure had her toddler birthday.





Finally! Justine's genetics have been defeated!



Slate had a little time before work, so he started on Azure's toddler skills. First things first, potty time!



Next, teaching Azure how to walk to the potty.



Azure: Really, Mom? Must we talk about marriage while I'm sitting in a puddle of water?



Best way to get out of doing something? Going into labor.



Grandma took over while Tasha and Slate headed off to the hospital.



The newest family member was a little boy named Saffron.



With the terrible lighting in Azure's room, she looked like she could blend into the floor.



Azure, be careful. Why? You'll shoot your eye out, kid.



Here. This is much safer. And cuter.





Meanwhile, the family members were all working on their skills and lifetime wishes. Junior maxed the guitar skill, which was one half of his lifetime wish.



The next part was to master the charisma skill.





Tasha and Slate, with 2/5 children already in the world, were ready to work on nooboo #3.



They decided the bathroom, where Junior was working on his charisma skill, was the perfect place to bring in the next generation. Whatever you do, Junior, don't look behind you.



Junior: ...but I can see it in the mirror...

Chapter 58- Junior's Mystery Woman

Hello everyone! It's time for Third Time's the Charm! In this episode, we get to start off with the birthday of little Saffron. Junior brought him up to the cake.





Here is little Saffron. He looks just like his daddy.



Remember the little incident that Junior had in the bathroom in the last chapter? Well, it looks like Slate and Tasha were successful.



Saffron was quickly taught his toddler skills.







I apparently gave Junior a young again potion at some point, as he had his second adult birthday...







Junior went out with his "girlfriend" to celebrate his birthday.

Tasha: So, Junior, when do we get to meet this girlfriend of yours?
Junior: *puts arm around thin air* Here she is!
*Family gives blank stare*
Malley: *Whispers* Uh, she's glitched out so she's invisible, Junior...I don't think they believe she exists...



Junior: She's real, I swear!!!

Back at home, Saffron was being all kinds of adorable.



Attention was quickly transferred to Tasha, however, as she went into labor.



Off at the hospital, they ran into a familiar face: Persimmon!



Persimmon also panicked.



Soon, little Cerise was welcomed in to the family.



With a full household, there were birthdays and celebrations practically every day. Soon after Cerise's birth, it was time for Azure to age up into a child.









Here is Azure. I'm pretty sure I gave her the bookworm trait for this birthday.





Slate had a little time before he had to rush off to work, so he tutored Azure.



In the meantime, Azure's room got a bit of an upgrade.



When Slate had to run off to work, Azure made good use of her new furniture, specifically, her computer. Her supermax was going to be writing.



See you next time!

Final household with the final heir well underway.  Nice!  I'll get there one day...if I can actually start finding any decent amounts of time to play...
Azure is such a little cutie!
The invisible girlfriend part was hilarious!  I wondered how the "mystery woman" part was going to pay out and I was definitely not expecting that!

Chapter 59- The Mystery Revealed

We begin this chapter with yet another birthday! In a household full of people, there is always some sort of celebration going on. This morning was Cerise's toddler birthday.





Most appropriately, Cerise got eyes the color of her name!



With her hands literally in the potty, Tasha got started on Cerise's toddler skills.











And now for the big reveal...Junior's mystery woman is none other than...

Crystal!



Story progression had Junior and Crystal get together during prom a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, so I kept them together. With more room needed in the house for additional nooboos, Junior was making the moves on his lady friend.



Soon after, it was time for another birthday. This time, Saffron would be aging up into a child.









Here is child Saffron. He looks a lot like Slate.



I believe he gained the Family Oriented Trait this time around.



Azure was happy to have Saffron become a child, as she now had someone to play with.



There would be no shortage of playmates in the house, given Tasha's lifetime wish and all, but, in order to bring in more nooboos, someone needed to get the boot. That person was Junior.





He proposed to Crystal on the beach, right in front of the outhouses. How romantic.





They got married right then and there.







Junior moved out to be with Crystal, which opened up some space in the house... ;)

See you next time! And, stay tuned for a new project that should be posted some time soon!!! UPDATE: The Grey Random Town Jump is now up! Check it out!

Chapter 60- Biology Lesson

Greetings all! It's time for chapter 60 of Third Time's the Charm. In the last chapter, there were birthdays. In this chapter, there will be even more birthdays! But, before that, let's catch up with the family.

Following his child birthday, Saffron was tutored by Slate.



After his lessons with Saffron, Slate moved on to a "biology lesson" with Tasha *wink, wink*



Azure: So how did your lesson with Dad go?
Saffron: It was okay. This is more fun. But Dad seemed really into biology, though.



Apparently, Slate and Tasha were very successful in their studying session.





*Fast forwarding...* Yay! Nooboo time!



By this point, Slate and Tasha were old pros at this whole baby thing. See? Not a single flicker of panic on the faces of the parents. That's monumental in the sims.



The newest addition to the family was Mauve. His traits were Clumsy and Artistic.



In even bigger news, Tasha's father completed his lifetime wish. That was great because Azure needed a tombstone for her requirements!



Azure's teen birthday was the first of many birthdays in the family.











Here is teen Azure.



She gained the Perfectionist trait.



After cake and a new wardrobe, it was time for another lesson from Slate. Thankfully, it was on another topic other than science.



Once that was over, Azure did what she did best: writing stories.



The next morning, it was time for yet another birthday!





Cerise performed some amazing contortions in order to become a child.





Here is child Cerise.



She gained the Loner trait on this birthday.



Whew! That was a lot of birthdays and celebrations. I think I need a break...see you next chapter :)

Well, she knows that she is the final heir, so, yes, in fact, she is quite awesome!

The best part is that Azure aging up to teen in that outfit makes her look exactly like one of her future siblings, since I'm pretty sure that's the outfit I gave her  :o
