I missed so much! Congrats Spin, RIP Cuda and peanut. Welcome little Sleuth, she'd have looked even more adorable with red hair.

Thanks @Tixxis  and @Nettlejuice. I love playing the kids, especially when they don't have a lot of skilling obligations. And yeah, blink and I've posted.

Sleuth got on the honor roll on her next day at school and had her birthday when she got home.
Sleuth:  Hey, I want my hair back.
I agree. This hides your cute ears.



 Like her many greats grandmother, Merlot, Sleuth started pounding away on her birthday present. Unlike Merlot, she intends to learn all the drum compositions and make tons of tips.


On Saturday morning, Spin and Sleuth got up early for driving lessons. I don’t know if it’s because Spin’s a supernanny or if it’s because Sleuth is perceptive, but she learned to drive in record time. Maybe it’s the spiffy roadster.


Spin is invited to a party almost every night.  He takes the opportunity, to meet all the men who are younger than elder, like this trio. Unfortunately they were all elders too in a matter of 2-3 days.


Fiona has been working on her street art to the point that she got to choose an additional trait, Rebellious. It’s really made a difference. Her 36th mural was her first masterpiece. Mural 44 was her fifth. Anyone who’s done the Street Art supermax knows this is pretty amazing.


Sleuth went to prom and got a romantic interest, Demario Owen (Hah! I wrote it down!), a newspaper  deliverer and the only boy in school. She had a great time, but Grim beat her home.
Spin begged for just a few more days. “Please I just want to see my daughter graduate and become a genius. Please just one more chat with my Fiona.” But, at only 52, it was his time.


And then Grim, who only reaps what is already fated, stayed to enjoy the water slide.


Sleuth took out her grief on the unhappy little gnomes.


Fiona became an astronaut on Sleuth’s birthday. Graduation meant that she would miss the one day of the week that she was scheduled work. She was already 51 and was not likely to live another 10 days to actually go into space. I had her wear her astronaut uniform that afternoon, but it was her idea to go on a sci-fi adventure.

Time to get the cake ready.

Aw RIP Spin, that just seems too soon. Way to go Fiona! Street Artist extraordinaire! And I must say, Sleth is one very pretty teen.

I think Grim was a bit mean there: using Spin's water slide after taking his soul.  :-\
Glad to see Fiona enjoy some zero-G in her spacesuit. Bittersweet.

@Playalot, My sims really aren't living much beyond their Best If Used By date.
@Tixxis, Grim has a job to do, but he doesn't need to rub it in.
@Nettlejuice , it was Fiona with the street art. I'm saving those challenges for some lucky heir in world 4.
@Malley, I know, I almost hurt myself patting my own back.

Next time don’t use those exploding candles. Fiona got the fire out before the fire fighter arrived.
He suggested caution the next time and was a little snarky about it.


Second times the charm. Sleuth got the same unbecoming hair, and went to sort it out.


She then got on the computer to join the Investigator career and downed a Liquid Job Booster.


Time to start learning logic and all those potion recipes.


If you study this picture very carefully, you may see Sleuth conducting a stake out. I know it’s difficult, she’s a master of disguise.


Sadly, even though it took only a few days, Fiona (age 54) did not live to see her daughter complete her career. She was ready to go. She had lived a full life, much fuller than expected.




It took less than four cases for Sleuth to max her career. Here she is working the Wayward Jalopy case wearing her cool level ten PI duds.


As she only needed to discover four more potions and establish two best friends, Sleuth was ready for some companionship.  She invited Demario over for a chat. Fortunately on the way over, he aged from teen to young adult, as NPCs often do.
Sleuth: Move in with me and you’ll not only eventually get a wife and child, but also your very own unbreakable laptop.
Demario: Throw in some hair dye, and you’ve got a deal.
So Demario Owen, Vehicle Enthusiast, Vegetarian, Photographer’s Eye, Computer Whiz, and Never Nude, joined the household. His lifetime wish, World Class Gallery, is really not doable with limited travel.

Demario, somehow, had a couple of points in gardening and wished to join the gardening career. Done.

The town is celebrating Sleuth heroic investigator work by giving her the Key to Dragon Valley. I’m celebrating the completion of her requirements.

Heir Ten
Sleuth Doe – Virtuoso, Heavy Sleeper, Ambitious, Perceptive, Genius   LTW – Living in the Lap of Luxury
Maxed Career – Private Eye, Investigator 10
Best Friends – Yusun Feliciano, Willie Lily
Skill Challenges – Money Maker Drums, Master Drummer, Master Chemist
Opportunities – The Case of the Footsore Floater, The Case of the Tattooed Thief, The Case of the Freshwater Pumps, The Case of the Wayward Jalopy

The museum is starting to look better. Sleuth added a bunch of career rewards and 4 potions, worth zero, to the 4x4 collection.

Oh my, Sleuth did her bits super fast! It must be her fantastic disguise when stalking.
Sorry to see Fiona pass over.

Hmm, now where could she be... I know! Is she the one in the blue skirt?  :D

Congratulations to Sleuth. I miss Fiona already.

Go Sleuth... strange how her name reflected her career, maybe there's something going on in this 4x4 about names.  ;) RIP Fiona, you were great!

@Tixxis , I'm going to miss Fiona, too. I't would be nice if her coloring would re-emerge in generations to come, but I don't have a lot of hope.
@officialghosts , Are you a private investigator too?
@Playalot , Yes, like Sleuth, I too am subtle and mysterious.

Sleuth and Demario became engaged, got married, and started working on their family in quick succession. Sleuth was 3 days to adult and time was a slipping by.


The next day, in the middle of the street, Sleuth realizes that a new Doe was on the way.


Sleuth loves her job and continued working during her pregnancy. Here she is working the fish kid case. She’s truly a master of disguise. She’s due the next morning, and although she can’t hide her waddle, she manages to hide her sizeable baby bump under her coat.


The next morning, a new member joins the family.


Heir 11, Kata Doe -  Heavy Sleeper, Disciplined. He has his father’s dyed hair and his mother’s eye color, but where those giant eyes came from is anyone’s guess.


Sleuth potty-trained Kata even before eating a piece of cake.


Sleuth: Back in the dim, misty past, there was a firefighter in our family. We still have a love of fire.
Kata: This is my impressed face.


Hmm…Perhaps Kata should have been an investigator.
 

Okay, that’s just creepy.

Kata is the second child in a row not to receive an IF doll. Thank you game gods

Welcome little Kata, I wonder if you will travel? His eyes just up the cute factor a whole lot. *Sigh* Toddlers.

@Tixxis , I love the faces the little ones make.
@Nettlejuice , What's really amazing is that some of the targets of her stake-outs actually stand in the bushes to conspire.
@Playalot , I plan travel for Kata, but probably not in the way you're thinking. Barracuda did take a shopping trip to China.
@Malley , I've only seen big eyes like that (on sims I haven't designed) on some townies in Hidden Springs.

Kata’s birthday was soon upon them. The conversation took an odd turn.
Kata: So, are clowns scarier with or without eyes?
Sleuth: And I taught you to talk why?
Demario: Without! No, with!



Kata would only have 2 days of elementary school, so his mother made sure he would get an A.



Gnomes aren’t the only things that get smacked.



Kata’s childhood was uneventful, undramatic, and unphotographed. Time for another birthday.


Kata didn’t even fix his clothes. He just (autonomously) ran straight out to the studio to use his present.
His traits are now Heavy Sleeper, Disciplined, Ambitious, and Athletic.



Kata has been collecting gems. The night before he had spotted this Moonstone, but turned around and ran home so he wouldn’t miss curfew.



Kata broke his first board. Yes, it’s styrofoam, and, yes, I could break it with a stern look, but that’s not the point. This marks the beginning of a new obsession.


Kata went to prom alone. He was voted king, got in some fights, but that was about it. While he was gone, Sleuth became an elder. Her father had died during her prom, so getting older didn’t seem so bad.


Three days later, it was Demario’s turn. It seemed plenty bad to him.


It would soon be Kata’s birthday again. He was making good progress in martial arts and athletics and was on the honor roll. Maybe university is in his future. He took the test and already has 18 credits.

Good question about clowns... I never noticed the lack of eyes in thought-bubble clowns before.

@Tixxis , Some of the thought-bubbles are really strange. What the heck are they talking about?!?
@Malley , I think every parent wonders that from time to time. It can't just be me.
@Playalot , Kata loves him some martial arts.


Kata was ready to grow up.


Right after his graduation ceremony, Kata packed up and left for University.


He had two goals. The first was to get a degree in Physical Education. This came pretty easily for Kata.


The second was a little trickier: Find the woman of his dreams.
Kata was attracted to all the girls in his dorm, but one in particular caught his attention: Brenda Kemp.


He liked her for many reasons.
She didn’t mind his odd bowling methods. She thought his crossed-eyes were cute.


In fact, she had an interesting method of her own.


Second, she was very strong.


And third and most important, she liked him too.


So Kata got his report card and was very pleased with his well-deserved A.


As soon as he got his diploma, Kata returned to Dragon Valley. One Miss Brenda Kemp would soon be receiving an invitation.
