With those traits and those clothes, I bet he's Aria's knight in shining armor. :P

@Tixxis , Rudolph is adorably sweet. Have you ever noticed that sometimes one trait will over shadow all the others? With Rudolph it's Family Oriented. I've never seen anyone wish to get married and have a child faster than Rudolph'
@Malley , I'd hate to lose Fiona's eye color, but it would be worth it for violet eyes.
@Nettlejuice , I was sure lucky this time with the town dying off and all. The singer career seems to have brought sims out of the woodwork though and the town isn't so empty.
@Playalot , I've been to parties like that.
@Trip , Well, he does feel like a dynasty savior.

Oh, did I mention that Rudolph was 8 days to elder when he moved in and a merman? Merfolk are kind of high maintenance, so I let him adapt to land. When he reached one day to elder he got a tattoo so he should be around a while.


Maria: About time you included a picture of me.
You’re always sculpting now and it’s hard to get an angle.


Aria’s favorite ride.


Rudolph’s first wish upon moving in was a generic Get Married, soon to be followed by Marry Aria. Let’s free up those two slots. I’m such a romantic.


Maria left us too soon at age 56.
Maria: It’s okay, I’m ready. Too bad about my sculpture though. It would have been a good one.


On her adult birthday, Aria completed the concert that put her over the top in her career.


She had one more thing to do. She celebrated her birthday at the library with her new best friend, Lisa Hannah.


Heir 14
Aria Doe – Virtuoso, Heavy Sleeper, Ambitious, Rebel, Natural Born Performer, Avant Gard (rebel)
LTW – Vocal Legend
Maxed Career – Vocal Legend, Singer 10
Best Friends – Chun-tao Chang, Lisa Hannah
Skill Challenges – Master Muralist, Money Maker – Guitar, Precision Sprayer
Opportunities – Business Model, Showtime in the Park, Commissioned Street Art, Cut a Demo

Aria is making an addition to the Museum, Wall Murals worth nothing. Chip’s stone sculptures have been placed and are worth about 36,000 last I checked.

Congrats Aria on your completing everything and getting married in such a romantic place. (Anywhere that's not a bathroom is romantic in the sims eh.  ;) )

@Tixxis and @Malley, Rebels love their bikes! In my decadynasty I had a ghost rebel still riding his after death (and he was no longer under my control).
@Playalot , Former Floorboos are not picky about such things.


Before long our couple realized they would soon be greeting a new family member.
Rudoph: I think I hear snoring.


Rudolph joined the painter career. Other than Loner, his traits don’t point in that direction, but he got one level and wished to be a painter. They don’t need the money, but it keeps him occupied while waiting for their nooboo.


And we have our first paparazzi lawn death. You’ve performed your last school cheer, lady.


At last heir 15, Aura Doe, arrived. She, in the finest family tradition, is a heavy sleeping virtuoso. She looks like Grandma Maria, so much for the violet eyes.


Aura: You want me to do what?!?


Aura Doe meet Craig the Creepy. He will randomly turn on the tv, and being a heavy sleeper you won’t care.


Rudolph taught Aura to walk while Craig gave unsolicited pointers.


Aura: Okay Lucky, it’s you and me versus Craig and Jess, and Craig is already down. I think we can take them.

Welcome Aura, you're hilarious already...and super cute even without violet eyes. I winced when I realized that your stalking paparazzi were doing school cheers too. Ouch, that's enough to drive any sane watcher right round the twist! It's brought back such vivid imagery that I feel slightly ill. Man I hate those cheers.

@Malley , Thanks, she actually looks good in her favorite color.
@Playalot , Oh the assault on my brain. Cheering over and over and only death stops it.
@Tixxis, Thanks, some sims just seem to provide funnier screenshots.
@Nettlejuice , The gnomes are creepy, but I keep them around because even Aura gets a +20 moodlet from them.

So Aura had her birthday and just realized what her mother had been wearing all this time.


Since Aura’s birthday was on a Saturday, there was plenty of time to work on getting an A grade. I don’t know who was more confused.


Then she was off to the park to meet….nobody.


Rudolph went to a party. Elders in swimsuits, a death, a fainting, a discussion of the color black (also Rudolph’s favorite)….a good time was had by all.


Meanwhile, at home, we have another incessantly cheering pap. Yer killin me, EA.


On one of her surprisingly frequent trips to the basement museum, Aria had her final birthday.

Enjoy your last night of childhood, Aura.
Aura: Roger that.

Was that last pic a foreshadowing of Aura's future career?

loving this story so much!

Aria had her last birthday? That means she's an elder, right? Not that she's dead?
Lol, both Novella and Aria like to go about their business in piquant underwear. Smexy ladies.

Laughed at Aria and Aura struggling over homework, the look on their faces lol! I dreamt about that horrific school cheer last night... and it's been over a year since I've played TS3 university... I can hear every single syllable. I think EA has scarred me for life.  :-\

@Magpie2012 , Sorry, no foreshadowing. She did that autonomously.
@Tixxis, Yes, just an elder and the nightwear seemed to suit our little midlife crisis rebel.
@Playalot , The cheer is cute the first time, but all night long....Noooo! A second pap has joined the mix. She's a rebel and apparently Evil. Next time they get in a fight, I'll try to take a picture instead of just cheering the rebel on.

Aura shared her birthday cake with her father while her mother was off doing whatever elder rebels do.


Aura added the Brave trait and went to change into some red clothes.


Aria made it home in time to jam with Aura however. They had a great time. Aura reached level 4 and nobody blocked the dishwasher or fridge.


Aura’s teen years went smoothly in a blur of homework and piano playing. She met some babysitters and newspaper deliverers, all boys, at school. She went to prom alone and was voted prom queen. I think she cast the only vote.


The day before her YA birthday, Aura invited her favorite babysitter, Jevon Ledbetter, over and in a blur of blue magic went from friends to best friends. He had already had his birthday so romance was out.


Aura grew up and had a plan in mind.


Her plan involved inviting Jevon over and having him move in. It did not involve having her mother die as soon as Jevon joined the household.
Aria: No I’m not ready. I have over 60k LTH points that I want to spend.
(Okay, so maybe that was me saying that, not Aria)
Rest in Peace, Aria Doe. You died in the afternoon at age 52 and much too soon.


Aura and Jevon carried on bravely with her plan. They both wanted to start careers and didn’t want any time off after the wedding so they were married out in the splendor of the paparazzi infested front yard.


The next day, a Friday, was graduation for both Aura and Jevon. Before heading out to City Hall, they signed up for their chosen careers. Jevon (Workaholic, Excitable, Family-Oriented, Charismatic, Kleptomaniac) wanted to be a CEO and would start on Monday. Aura started that night and was dressed to impress.


Aura’s most recently added trait was Genius as logic is apparently very important for a Ghost Hunter. After work and downing an invigorating elixir, she began using her telescope. She discovered her first star, John Doe.


The next day it all became just too much for Rudolph, and with 6 hours left of mourning at age 57, he joined his beloved wife.


All alone to face the world together, Aura and Jevon took comfort in each other’s company.

Oh, Aria! She seemed so full of life. Is she the shortest lived heir?
And dear Rudolph went soon too. At least they are together.
Wow! Another great spouse. Congratulations to Aura and Jevon!

@Tixxis , Spanner, Spin, and Merlot all died at 52, but later in the day maybe.
@PeregrineTook , Thanks so much! I'm glad I'm not the only binge-reader.
@Playalot , So much was going on with the birthday and Jevon moving in that Aria's passing took me by surprise.

Life goes on and so does ghost hunting. Why is it that Ghostly Presence jobs always happen in only the biggest houses in town?


With six days to go until her Adult birthday, Aura reached the top of her career and already had completed four opportunities. She still had a lot of celestial bodies to discover though so she took a few unpaid days off. Finally she reached number twenty naming a giant orange star after Fiona.


Heir Fifteen
Aura Doe – Virtuoso, Heavy Sleeper, Ambitious, Brave,  Genius   LTW – Paranormal Profiteer
Maxed Career – Paranormal Expert, Ghost Hunter 10
Best Friends – Nicklaus Burleson, Galen Dozier
Skill Challenges – Money Maker Piano, Master Pianist, Celestial Explorer
Opportunities – What’s My Motivation Gala, Spooky Props, Spirit Donation, Scare the Crooks

The Doe Family Museum of Can We Get Some More Lights in Here
Career Rewards have been completed. Chip’s sculptures are currently valued at 58,531. Wedding gifts and celebrity gifts are waiting to be placed.


Aura let Jevon know that her requirements were met and that they could start their family.
Happy Birthday, Jevon! And yes, this is what he wears to work.


Poor Aura was sick almost constantly.


This was supposed to be a picture of Aura discovering her pregnancy, but it morphed into something else. Farewell cheering pap. May you be replaced by a nerd.


Then Grim stuck around long enough to insult the pregnant lady.


Time for your close up, Jevon. He has violet eyes.


Just another quiet day at the Doe house.


And then this happened.

And after giving birth to triplets, Aura calmly grabs her guitar and serenades the nooboos as they lay in the dirt.  Gotta love Sim parenting!
Another lovely update.  I think Grim is just intentionally photobombing you since he seems to show up at every event where you're likely to take pictures.

Jevon is a cutie by the way. Looks like the kiddies have his lovely skin tone. Maybe he passed on those violet eyes too.

@Nettlejuice , Thanks, it looks like we were pretty much posting simultaneously there.
@PeregrineTook , Aura loves her guitar! About the floor sleeping, in their defense, both parents kept wishing to buy cribs. It's so much easier to tend to the tykes without the crib dance that they were denied.
@Tixxis , The skin tone is quite lovely. You can see their eyes in this post.
@Playalot , You weren't the only one surprised. No elixirs were used, no fertility treatment, the only thing Aura did with the tv was play video games. I think one of the gnomes may have switched on the kids' music....hmm... Well, it'll keep the final heir from being boring.

Jevon had work the day after the triplets’ birth and then stopped by the library to quickly read a book to help get his next promotion. He chose to sit in the kids section and popped a wish to have a child. I tried to reached through the screen and punch him.


Time for introductions.
Heir 16, Presto Doe – Heavy Sleeper, Virtuoso and he loves the color white
Except for his skin tone, he looks a lot like Aura.


Second born, Hermano Doe – Heavy Sleeper, Good and he prefers green
He got his dad’s hair and violet eyes.


And batting third we have Frere Doe – Heavy Sleeper, Easily Impressed who likes black
He looks like Presto, but maybe the face shape is a little different, it’s too early to tell.


The first day they all learned to use the potty….because. The second day was for learning to talk.
Presto: So I understand we have a pile of money. I don’t know if I want to live in it or simply swim in it.


That evening Presto got a little jump start on walking but was too tired to continue. Day three was for getting them up on their feet.
With Jevon being Family Oriented and Aura have that Nanny lifetime reward, the toddler skills went very quickly.


The fourth day was for play. On the eve of their birthday, Aura gently strummed her babes into dreamland.

Note: The guitar, as long as the certificate isn’t used as a career reward, and the other band instruments are a great way to keep a virtuoso busy and happy in a 4x4. They can’t complete the skill challenges without watcher interference.

Gorgeous kids, wonderful parents... I'm so happy they had triplets. But I can understand why you wanted to punch Jevon's lights out.  ;D
