@Malley  I have to write everything down. They all just come and go so fast.
@Playalot  It's sweet when they go happily without a fuss. Sometimes they just seem ready.


Palette was soon all grown up.



When Tahiya reached the top of her medical career, she considered retiring. For three nights in a row she had been called out on emergencies. Enough was enough. Palette’s birthday became a double celebration. I’m not sure why Palette’s school friend thought it had something to do with yetis.



Tahiya and Palette spent the evening companionably in the studio. Tahiya painted her first masterpiece.



It was unfortunately her only masterpiece. That  evening  Tahiya  Doe, age54, shook Grim’s hand and left peacefully.



Grim felt sorry for Palette and stuck around for some gaming.



From then on Palette would paint alone.

Is Palette alone in the house now? I think we need a spouse for her ASAP! Or at the very least, a roommate...

@Magpie2012  We'll get right on that!
@Nettlejuice  I think it's a matter of habit. I started out her asking for help, and then commenting on other stories. Word is much better.

Palette got lonely. When she was invited to a party she jumped at the chance. The second person she ran into at the party was Brandon. She finds her cuddly bear quite irresistible. The first person she ran into was the woman standing with them, um…Flexible Lady, who tried flirting with both of them.


She had a lot of fun. Brandon’s mother, I think her name is Mom, told a really scary-fun ghost story.



Palette continued working hard at her painting. By consigning them she reached the top of her career before reaching her 30 painting goal. Then a few days before her adult birthday, she painted this, her fifth masterpiece and 30th painting. She still needed two more opportunities.



Brandon to the rescue! He asked her to bring him a medium painting. She asked him to go steady.



The day before her adult birthday, Palette received a call from China. Bring a large painting worth more than 750. Everything she paints is worth more than that. Off she went. She delivered the painting, went shopping, and did a little sight-seeing. With the wonders of China before her, Palette sat down to surf the web.
Palette: They have wi-fi!



Heir Six
PaIette Doe – Artistic, Heavy Sleeper, Ambitious, Born Saleswoman, Irresistible  LTW – Living in the Lap of Luxury
Maxed Career – Master of the Brush, Painter 10
Best Friends – George Edge, Gordon Thornton
Skill Challenges – Proficient Painter, Brushmaster, Master Painter
Opportunities – Interior Décor, A Large Painting, A Medium Painting, Deliver a Painting to China
The current state of the Museum of We Have a Museum?

Palette added the Artist’s Painted Ribbon and four paintings. The paintings are an ongoing process. They total 11-12K at this point.

Thanks everyone. Palette was very fast. She spent a lot of time painting while I zoomed through on high speed. I did send her off to the park and to that party. Meeting people seems to trigger opportunities from them. It was nice that Brandon was one.

Palette was ready to start the next phase of her life. She invited her cuddly bear over. They talked and decided to move in together and start planning their wedding.


Two days later Palette realized they might want to hurry up their plans.
Palette: Do not take pictures of this.
No, of course not.



They were wed in the privacy of their own living room. The Bride wore maternity jeans and top, while the Groom sported a new green jacket. They couldn’t have been happier.



Brandon had always wanted to be a professional writer. The quiet before the nooboo storm seemed a perfect time to start.



Are you sure you want to name him that? You’re an author, you can surely come up with something better.
Brandon: Yes, I’m sure, and I’ve written three sports books. I think you’re expecting too much.



Heir Seven – Flip Doe - Eccentric, Heavy Sleeper



Brandon was five days older than Palette and had his elder birthday that day as well. He was a very patient teacher and excited to share his knowledge of fishing with his son. His skill was at level five without ever having caught as fish, as far as he could remember.



Brandon wrote a sports book a day, and Palette continued painting because she loved it so. They still took time to croon love songs to each other. Flip is way over by the trees singing to his doll Cosmo. His singing is much better.

@Playalot  Thanks, townies are indeed special.
@Nettlejuice  and @Tixxis  The adults' singing is painful. Tahiya had a beautiful singing voice, too bad it wasn't passed down.

Flip soon became a child, and who couldn’t love a face like that.



He started using his birthday present right away, but was very disappointed with the fiery results.



Palette: Hey, let’s pillow fight! We’ll take our pillows out the front door and around and through the front gate.
Flip: Good plan! Let’s just ignore the door right next to us that leads directly to the same place.



They are a very close-knit little family. There are apparently no other children in Flip’s class. Not even the papergirl shows up. Palette has checked the paper and families have been moving to town, but none with children.



Sleep well, Sweetie. Tomorrow’s your birthday, and maybe you’ll finally make friends at school.

@Malley, Do you watch Game of Thrones or read the Song of Ice and Fire Books? Flip could be a Baratheon.

I unfortunately do not watch it, but I am familiar with Game of Thrones. He does seem like he would fit in there though, now that you mention it  :P

@Tixxis  He definitely needs some help from somewhere.

The next morning was Flip’s birthday. Instead of going to an empty classroom, Flip blew out his candles. He got the family trait, Ambitious.
He loves his Flip hair.



Early in the evening on Friday, Palette’s Cuddly Bear passed on. He was only 52.
Brandon: Please just give me until noon on Sunday when my royalties come in.
Grim said nothing. He just continued on with his business.



Flip: My dad’s dead, my butt’s on fire. I think I need to go cry in the shower.



Prom was that night. Maybe it would make him feel better, maybe worse. Flip had met 3 kids at school all of them babysitters. One of them, Paulette Something, became his romantic interest.



A few days later, Palette became a lovely elder. She was very happy to keep her hairstyle.

@Malley  Flip takes those butt fires so hard. He's really good at the sad face.
@Nettlejuice  I think Flip is going to have to settle for a babysitter. I don't want to travel this generation, and the families that are moving in seem to be elders and mostly men.

I should have an update later. My heat pump went out so no air conditioning, and our weather has been uncharacteristically hot. Oh, and the starter gave out on my car. I've had a lot of little chores to take care of (big Independence Day party at our house Saturday as well).

Time to grow up, Flip. What’s the look for.
Flip: My hair was suddenly sucked up into my scalp!



The ill-fated statue….



…goes boom.



As soon as that important business was taken care of, Flip registered as an acrobat. He had never done anything athletic, so it was time to start.



He reached level three in his career that day and was ready to audition at the park. If he couldn’t dazzle the proprietor with his talent, maybe he could intimidate her with his steely gaze.



She booked him for a show the next evening. It was a great performance even though, or perhaps because, his mother was in the audience blowing kisses at all the men. Flip only set his butt on fire once.



Things were going well, so Flip decided it was time to invite his old high school flame over for a visit.
Palette: Step aside son. So, tell me about yourself. I’m observant, dear, so don’t try to fool me.
Palette discovered that Paulette Havens was a Family Oriented, Computer Whiz, Slob. (These names are too close.)



Paulette: My favorite color is aqua.
Flip:  Mine’s green. Close enough. How about moving in. You can have your own break proof laptop.
Paulette: Cool.


A few days later, Palette, age 54, happily went to join her Cuddly Bear.  Rest in peace. You were an amazing heir.



Flip had quit his acrobat career after reaching level ten on his fourth day. He wanted a job with more regular hours that would provide more opportunities, Sports. The day before his adult birthday, he finished running 75 hours and knew he would complete his fourth opportunity when he got to work. If he just talked to his teammates, he was sure to get a second best friend.



And so while at work, Flip completed his requirements.

Heir Seven
Flip Doe – Eccentric, Heavy Sleeper, Ambitious, Natural Born Performer, Loves the Outdoors
          LTW – Master Acrobat
Maxed Career – Master Acrobat, Acrobat 10
Best Friends – Adam Cockrell, Angel Garland
Skill Challenges – The Scrap Collector, Marathon Runner, Fitness Nut
Opportunities – Showtime in the Park, At the Health Seminar, Push It!, Hawking the Foam Finger

Flip has four time machines (6,400) in family storage awaiting placement in the Museum. The basement doesn’t look much different, but the paintings are now worth more than 18k.
