@Malley, I wish our families could actually meet up! You always seem to have great spares.
@Playalot , Ooo...did I foreshadow?
@Nettlejuice , Love those learning to talk faces.
@Tixxis, Let's just say many apples were eaten.

Time for a quick update.
Chip had his child birthday, and lucky for him, had no skills he needed to learn. He did become Ambitious however.


He went to Verde Park and I left him to do whatever he liked.
Chip: And then the giant, radioactive bug ate all the pretty blond women in Starlight Shores.


In fact, other than making sure he filled his basic needs and did his homework he was pretty much on his own.
Chip: Rowr!


Chip: Where’s Bella? Somewhere scary I hope.


This could be my family, but none of us would be wearing a dress.

Chip is ready to become a teen.
No, I don’t want you to.

That looked like you had a ton of fun with Chip, he's a pretty funny wee chap!

A childhood spent being a child is awesome, poor Chip though the rest of his life will be pretty busy.

@Playalot  and @Nettlejuice, It was fun playing a carefree child. His parents were so done with what they needed to do that I could pretty much just sit back and watch. Novella makes 130+k a week in royalties now so there is no big push for funds either. She's also stowed away a dusty old lamp for each coming generation.

And so, despite my pleadings, Chip became a teenager.


See, I told you not to grow up. Now you have to spend your Sunday sculpting.
Chip: I’m a Savvy Sculptor and this is a lot of fun. So, thanks, I guess.


Chip’s friend Milton Best came over to do homework after school. Chip did his homework, but Milton did this all afternoon and evening.
Novella, he’s more comfortable on the floor than sitting next to you in your night wear.
Novella: Mid-life crisis here. If I wear this maybe no one will notice my wrinkles. Maybe I should go look in the mirror some more.


Chip was ready to try out some ideas he had for sculpting metal, but first he needed some metal. The junkyard was full of adults and elders flirting.
Chip: Head down, just look at the scrap, Chip.


The day before his next birthday, Chip went to visit the Best Household. He had met Maria at school, and she had said they had a lot in common and should get to know each other better, but after 2 days she was gone to young adulthood.
They had a deep conversation about their favorite colors. She was really nice and didn’t laugh when he said his was sea foam.

Goodbye for now, Maria. See you tomorrow.

I didn't want to say, but I thought he might become a sculptor!
Lol, Novella! I'd be more worried about my dress code than a few wrinkles in that particular situation.  ;D

Wow Novellea, teen boy alert! How embarrassing for Milton! Lol. I actually didn't pick Chip's skill, <duh> I'd forgotten all about sculpting and was trying to think what on earth goes with 'chip'... cooking? ?  But that's already been done!  ::)

The name didn't click for me either until now. Wow, Novella, I don't even know what to say, lol, I suppose it isn't as bad as flirting in the junkyard of all places.

Thanks for reading and commenting, everyone! What can I say, Novella and Chip, as a YA, rarely seem to get dressed. Vincente and Maria always do. I'd say it has to do with working at home, but they all work at home.

The next day after having his birthday celebration, Chip invited Maria over. They decided it was a date and got along so well that Maria moved in.


After graduation, Chip got right to work.
Careful, those robes look flammable.


Chip and Maria knew they wouldn’t be able to start a family right away, but decided not to delay their marriage. Novella was a two star celebrity, and when they became friends, Maria became a celebrity too. Between becoming engaged, getting married, and being frisky, Chip and Maria both became 4 star celebrities in matter of a few hours. Yikes! Time to build a fence.


The clerk at the Elixir shop asked Chip to sculpt an ice sim to remind sims of the fragility of life or some such thing. He didn’t really care why, he was just happy for the opportunity. Novella was happy to pose in her nightie.


And just in time too. She and Vincente became elders. Actually they look good.


Maria, being older than her husband, decided to get a tattoo. It made her feel so much younger that she gave herself a quick makeover.


When Maria first moved in she wanted to buy an easel. She’s been making slow, but steady progress as a professional artist. She’s also made pretty much everything in the house unbreakable.


Another opportunity involving an ice sim. Novella once again volunteered to pose in her very much changed night wear.


I guess you can only work so long on invigorating elixirs before it catches up with you.


Chip and Maria had been wanting a child for a while. Chip just needed to reach the top of his career. He had cancelled and re-consigned a masterpiece stone sculpture twice. If it would just sell, he would be close, very close.


The day before his adult birthday, he got word that it had finally sold. $76 to go! This sculpture was worth $744.


Heir Thirteen
Chip Doe – Heavy Sleeper, Excitable, Ambitious, Savvy Sculptor, Born Salesman  LTW – Living in the Lap of Luxury
Maxed Career – Master Scuptologist, Sculptor 10
Best Friends – Barry Whitfield, Milton Best
Skill Challenges – Chiselmeister, Master Sculptor, Prolific Sculptor
Opportunities – Personal Sculpture, Make-A-Dream, Sims on Ice, Your Best Work

The Doe Family Museum of Emptiness
It only contains Chip’s career rewards. He will start placing sculptures now that he doen’t need to sell them all. Celebrity gifts and Wedding gifts will also be placed later. Chip and Maria received a 50k+ fountain from her father.

Vincente and Novella are your best looking elderly couple yet, I think.
With all the great genes in your dynasty it's hard to say. The aesthetic margins are infinitesimal.
Maria looks rather gorgeous. I like the curves of her mouth and that perky chin.
Way to go, dapper Chipper!
Isn't it sweet when they fervently wish for a nooboo?

@Tixxis, I agree, Vincente and Novella are lovely as elders, and Maria is adorable.
@Playalot , They both locked in wishes to have a child and to have a child with each other fairly early on.

Soon Chip and Maria realized their wishes would soon come true.


Novella and Vincente were both 53 and living on borrowed time. They were a bit stir crazy and decided to visit that night’s hot spot in town, Rodeo-A-Go-Go. Milton Best, the proprietor, and a paparazzi were present which probably did make it the busiest place in town. Milton took one look at Novella and left, probably worried about the possible appearance of night wear.


Then the pap left in her own special way.


A tourist from China showed up just in time to witness Vincente’s meeting with the Reaper.
Vincente: Please, just wait until my wife gets up here.
Grim: Sorry, I’ve got a tight schedule.


The next day a little, pink bundle came along to help fill the hole in Novella’s heart.


Aria Doe, Heavy Sleeper and Virtuoso. She has her father’s coloring, but maybe her mother’s lips and face shape. Fiona’s eye color has been very persistent.


Novella helped out when she could.


But the parents taught Aria her skills.
First came the all important pottying.


Followed by getting her on her own two feet.


Next a discussion of why the moon had only one phase.
Chip: Zombies!
Aria: Grr! Arrgh!

From the potty training pic and the talking training pic, I must conclude that adorable Aria is practicing lower octaves.  :)

The screenshot of Novella cuddling Aria is just gorgeous. RIP Vincente least your last few hours were spent with Novella.

@Nettlejuice , They gained celebrity points so fast. Aria instantly got 3 stars on becoming a child. At least she hasn't been falsely accused of peeing herself...yet.
@Tixxis , She's practicing all the octaves.
@Playalot , Thanks, there was a lot of pausing involved.

Aria soon became a child and added the Ambitious trait.

She took off to check out the town and maybe meet some people. She went to the hottest club in town, but she and the proprietor were the only ones there.

Note: The town is pretty much dying. The paper has been read every day, and since the Does moved to town only one family has been added, and elder couple. When they purchased the consignment shop, two registers were added. Clerks were assigned, but I think they just moved in with some elders. Oh well, I guess it’s npc or tourist spouses from now on or travel maybe. Does anyone know if the proliferation of paparazzi and proprietors causes this?

Sure, Novella, brag about your 3 star celebrity granddaughter to her father. Well, he seemed to appreciate it.


Do your homework, Aria, you don’t want to grow up to be clumsy.
Aria: Clumsy might not be so bad.


Chip went to a party and joined the rest of the town in elderhood.


The next day was Aria’s birthday.


She went off to find clothes and hair that suited her better. She may have her father’s eyes and hair, but everything else is pure Maria.


Aria was now Rebellious and set out to prove it. She has a mood swing every other day.


Novella, our oldest Doe at age 65, was taken by Grim. She lived to see her son become an elder and her granddaughter a teen. No easy feat on medium. You were a best friend to the family and will be missed.


Grim then stuck around to show one of our paparazzi a gross video. She still didn’t leave. Thanks for trying, Grim.


Aria took solace in her guitar. She and Novella were roomies and video game pals so her passing was especially hard.


Aria went to an empty park that evening and ranted to no one, but not about death, never about death.

RIP Novella, she did really well indeed. Aria is so cute. I love that she's having mood swings *snort* so true to life. Go Grim...pity the gross video didn't scare the pap off though.

@Malley , that's just too funny!
@Playalot , she had sooo many mood swings, but never pulled any pranks.
@Nettlejuice  and @Tixxis , I've been keeping the family small so I'm never in a rush to lose family members. It's funny, but even when I'm expecting them to die at any time, it always takes me by surprise.

When Aria became a Young Adult she decided to adopt a more tousled look. The Natural Born Performer in her thought it would look good tossed around on stage.


Right after graduation, Aria joined the Singer profession and began performing for tips.


At age 53, Chip attended another party but never made it back home.
Chip: Whatever, it was kind of boring anyway.
Maria had to crash the party to pick up his tombstone.
Maria: And why no pictures of that? Or anything else I’ve done as an elder?
Sorry.


During Aria’s first performance at Verde Park, a huge protest was held. It had nothing to do with her…really.  There’s some non-elders present. See the guy standing back by the speaker?


Keep singing, Aria. I’ll follow him home.


Well, well. He lives in a big house by the beach and has one of those Kompensator cars. He must be one of our consignment shop additions. It up to you now, Aria.
She made her move under the close scrutiny of Rudolph’s coworkers.


All went well, in fact, well enough that Rudolph messaged twice for romantic singing telegrams to assist in his flirting. Nothing wins a woman’s heart like assistance in her career.


Rudolph came over after work and moved in.


So this is Rudolph Banda with hair more suited to his renaissance fair clothes. His traits are Family-Oriented, Charismatic, Easily Impressed, Friendly, and Loner. He sounds a bit conflicted, if you ask me. Who cares, he has violet eyes.
