@KRae But at least Marc is disciplined about forgetting things! :) A sim I just rolled up received unlucky, hot headed, hydrophobic, eccentric and diva. Certainly an interesting selection of traits.

Marc looks so peaceful, painting at his easel, amazing he remembers to finish.

@Deklitch , Wow, were those traits for an heir?

@Playalot , He doesn't remember to finish. I tell him to continue, but sometimes he just wanders off. He is my most absent-minded sim ever.

What was Marc’s teen trait? Genius! So his traits are Absent-Minded, Disciplined, Artistic, and Genius. Not so bad after all.


Of course, sometimes when his taking his food to the table, he forgets what he’s doing, puts the plate on the floor, and wanders off.


And so it begins. No one’s particularly good, but they are improving.


On her adult birthday Rena reached the top of her sports career and was so pleased with herself that she didn’t even have a midlife crisis.


And so it continues. Marc progressed faster partly due to his disciplined trait but mostly because he spars with his dad too.


Maximus prefers the peace of his beautiful little garden.


At age 93, Star went with Grim.


She wasn’t really alone. She died at the bottom of the stairs, and it was so crowded with mourners that Star and Grim had to move to the foyer to complete their business.


That same night, Max became an elder with his father-in-law’s hair. We’re going to need to red that up a bit.


Marc was finally showing signs of completing a painting on his own, when he was rudely interrupted by his mother.


Payback can be a beautiful thing.


The day before his young adult birthday Marc found a girlfriend. This is Tiffani Costa. She and Marc met in primary school, but she fell off his relationship panel. They re-met in high school and Tiffani wanted to get to know Marc better. I worry about what traits they might have in common to cause the attraction. Please not absent-minded.

@KRae they were the traits rolled for my Genie founder in a Life States Dynasty attempt in Moonlight Falls. He went into inventing. He hasn't suffered a butt fire yet! He did get singed once, but his unlucky trait saved him from catching alight. His LTW chosen was monster maker. His heir is going to be a witch-boo courtesy of the middle Crumplebottom sister, assuming he remembers to complete his inventions (to contribute to his heir adding requirements), LOL. He's already started blowing things up - I'm hoping for enough money to get one of those large statues that give you lots of scrap - and that he doesn't forget to run away from the flames, although he'll probably walk out of the flames unscathed, and just as well, as he wouldn't enjoy a shower!

For some reason the thought of Tiffani having the absent minded trait as well had me laughing. Oh my, does that make me an evil watcher reader?

@Deklitch , I guess difficult traits are what keep us from getting bored.

@Playalot , I believe you may well have a hidden evil trait (notice evil with a small e, not EVIL).

Marc was soon a young adult with the traits Absent-Minded, Disciplined, Artistic, Genius, and Great Kisser. He had more hair than this, but it changed to this whenever he practiced martial arts. The buzzed look is probably better. His lifetime wish is Martial Arts Master.


He immediately wished to travel to Egypt. What? That won’t help. He did finally wish to go to China, so off he went. He won a couple of matches and bought supplies that he would need to camp out at the market.


This woman was his toughest opponent because she always said she was busy. Marc checked out houses until he finally found her. She was busy watching TV.


Later on he had to challenge her again. At least he knew where she lived this time. She must have been watching Martial Art Madness on TV because she was now a black belt.


This was Marc’s last opponent. He politely agreed to spar in one of the shops.


As the former champ left in shame, Marc celebrated the completion of his lifetime wish with a good night’s sleep.


Through the magic of vacation, although Marc spent 5 days in China, when he got home it was still his birthday. Hal, age 98, chose that moment to go with Grim. He didn’t stick around for any photo ops.


All the Mysterious Mr. Gnomes in Monte Vista were so distraught that they died. (What is it about Monte Vista and gnome tombstones).


A miserable Marc graduated the next day. Not only was he valedictorian, but he was voted Most Likely to Take Over the World. What?!?

@Playalot , As you will see below, you're evil wish has been fulfilled.

Marc discovered the next day that Tiffani was a young adult too. He rushed over to her house and before you could say “only in the sims”, they were husband and wife.


Tiffani’s traits are Brave, Natural Cook, Supernatural Fan, Friendly, and Absent-Minded. Wonderful.
She wants to be a Firefighter Super Hero. Sorry, Tiffani, not going to happen where you’re moving. As soon as she had 10,000 lifetime happiness point, she decided to be a Culinary Librarian.


Time to start the next generation.


Tiffani actually seemed to enjoy the dancing bunnies.


Marc was excited by his impending fatherhood.


No one was happier than Rena about the arrival of the twins.


The Khan family once again filled their packing boxes and hit the road, leaving behind a single not so lonely little doll.

@Playalot , I've dealt with forgetful sims before, but these two are prize winners.

After a quick remodel of the downstairs, the Khan family settled into this house overlooking the ocean in Bridgeport.


There is a spectacular view of the city from the front.


The day after moving the twins became toddlers.
This is Besa, Artistic and Disciplined.


Her moments younger brother, Brock, is an Insane Virtuoso.


The twins worked hard on their skills.


Uncle Riley may have finally run out of dolls as neither child received a special friend in the mail.



Maximus is a wonderful grandpa. He stayed up all night making sure the toddlers had everything they needed. With parents that sometimes forgot that nooboos need their bottles and a grandma who sometimes stole their lollies and made them cry, Max was a steadying influence. He was 89 on their birthday.


Rena aged up to elder in her work clothes.


Having learned enough recipes to fill a very small library, Tiffani completed her lifetime wish and decided it was time to get a job.


Yay promotion! Time to do the school cheer…again. At least I’m hoping that’s what she’s cheering about.


Rena retired in order to spend more time with Max and on perfecting her martial arts skill. She went to the performance park where she could disrupt total strangers instead of her family.


Unfortunately while she was celebrating, the camera was yanked back home to this scene. Rest in peace Maximus McDermott Khan, age 93. I’ll watch after the grandkids for you.

@Playalot , I was hoping he would live until the kids had their child birthday. At least they didn't have to mourn.

@Magpie2012 , I know. I may leave something very non sequitur there instead.

Fingers crossed, hoping for the best, the toddlers were taken to their birthday cakes.
Besa added Computer Whiz to Disciplined and Artistic.


Brock is now a Workaholic, Insane Virtuoso.


Brock began to explore the many fascinating objects in his home.


Besa went home with Belisama Hemlock after school the first day. She did her homework on her multitab as the Hemlocks only have two chairs at the table. Apparently not everyone dines on food.


Someone finally used the pool. Apparently formal wear is required. Brock didn’t really swim. He tread water and sort of panicked. I showed him the ladder and had him get out, poor kid.


Rena looks so peaceful meditating. She’s either reminiscing about her candy stealing glory days or planning her next scare campaign. Do not trust this grannie.


Belisama came over after school and pretty much ignored the kids. She became instant best friends with Rena when they discovered that they are both Evil, Easily Impressed Light Sleepers. Belisama also started a game of very slow tag up and down the stairs with Tiffani who is also her best friend now.


What’s up Besa?
Besa: Just practicing. I want to be a watcher when I grow up.
Sorry Besa. Being a watcher is sort of like going to Denny’s. It’s not something you actually plan. You just sort of end up there.


We’ll leave Rena at the pavilion catching fireflies. It’s her new “get this woman out of the house” hobby.

@Magpie2012 , I haven't decided yet. I think I'll get suggestions from Brock.

@Malley, Hi! Maximus was an island of strength and calm in a sea of Khan.

The twins had their birthday. First Besa added Good to Disciplined, Artistic, and Computer Whiz.


Brock’s traits are now Insane, Virtuoso, Workaholic, and Perceptive.


Besa loves to paint. The family has 4 easels, but Marc has a hard time finding an empty one to use.


After becoming a teen, Brock headed straight to the piano. He happily plays his (Hal’s) guitar when I ask him to, but he loves the piano.


With prom looming in the near future, Besa invited her friend, Sebastian Striker, over for a visit and got herself a prom date.


Not to be outdone, Brock asked Belisama to prom. For an evil girl, Belisama makes friends easily.


The kids had a great prom and both now are in relationships.
While they were at prom, Rena rocked her last rock. Rena, you will be missed. You may have been evil, but you never forgot what you were doing.


Life went on. Besa taught herself martial arts and wanted to spar with someone. Marc was kind and beat her quickly without pulling out any of his special, fancy moves.


Brock played piano until he hurt his hand. It didn’t seem to slow him down at all.


The twins will soon be young adults, and I’m not even close to selecting an heir. Do I want Besa whose traits are good if a bit on the boring side? She would be paired with Sebastian. I’m sure they would make pretty nooboos. Should I select Brock who is a more interesting (he keeps wanting to eat a potato that isn’t even in his inventory) paired with Belisama? She would need to forsake her vampirism as I don’t want any extended lives.

Why not do a me in this situation, and name them both as temporary heirs? Move them both to the next town and let each of them have one child. Choose the two heirs (parent and child) based on which of the cousins have the most interesting traits. ;)

Thanks for the quick input @Magpie2012 , Besa has that amazing red hair. I could have Belisama turn Brock and have them disappear into the night mists of Bridgeport. @Deklitch , That could work, too. They'd have room for a spouse and one child each. The next town wouldn't know what hit them.

I don't know, there's just "something" about Besa... I don't even know what it is... It just jumps out at me and says "pick me", usually when that happens I just go with it lol

I like the "dual heir" idea too, but only because it means that if you decide on Brock, I'll still get to see Besa from time to time lol

@Playalot and @Magpie2012 , This was the toughest heir decision yet.

The teen years (days) are a time of anxiety. Besa relieved hers by demolishing foam boards.


Brock demonstrated his with his usual formal wear swim panic.


Birthday time! Youngest first for once. Brock’s traits are now Insane, Virtuoso, Workaholic, Perceptive, and Bookworm. He wants to be a Hit Movie Composer. He also grew a lot of body hair.


Besa’s traits are Disciplined, Artistic, Computer Whiz, Good, and Excitable. She wants to be a Dynamic DNA Profiler. She grew up to be a lovely young woman with no discernable body hair. Well, that’s a point in her favor.


Sebastian came for a visit that day. They decided to take it slow, meaning he moved in, but they didn’t get married on the porch.


Here is Sebastian Striker. His traits are Brave, Sailor, Loves the Outdoors, Party Animal, and Virtuoso. He wants to be a One Sim Band. Better get busy, Sebastian, you have zero instrument skill points. Playing for tips in the subway can bring in plenty of happiness points which he needs and plenty of cash which they don’t need. Look at that eye color. Another point in Besa’s favor.


After graduation, Belisama came for a visit. She and Brock went the more traditional route and were married immediately.


It was late, but Belisama went to the science center anyway in order to become a normal sim.


Here she is back home. Her traits are Rebellious, Party Animal, Light Sleeper, Evil, and Easily Impressed. Her lifetime wish was to Turn the Town. She quickly got enough points to change it to Master of the Arts. Belisama is interesting looking but scary.


Even though she was having bouts of nausea, Besa was off to work the next day all dressed up for her job in law enforcement.


Meanwhile, Brock finally had someone to jam with.


Even though Belisama was no longer a vampire, she had the extreme fast learning vampire trait. She wanted to learn street art. One ground mural and one wall mural later, she was at level 10, added the artistic trait as a level 8 rebel, became a level 10 rebel and accepted a job as an art appraiser. That was a busy couple of hours, and why she got to change her LTW so quickly.


The next day she completed her lifetime wish by going from zero to ten in painting before even completing a single canvas, and from zero to ten in guitar so quickly she almost missed the wish to max it. All this made her excited enough to puke.


Besa and Sebastian both wished to get married, and so, of course, they did.


Before long, Besa went into labor in the most secluded downstairs room. Naturally, half the family wandered though and had to be calmed down.


The rest of the family was otherwise occupied.


The next day, Belisama went into labor in the same room. No one dared to bother her.


Besa and Seb have a son named Dane who is Perceptive and Insane. Takes after his Uncle Brock.
Brock and Belisama have a daughter named Damia who is an Easily Impressed Slob.


Besa is now the official heir mostly due to her red hair and Sebastian’s vivid eye color, but also because Belisama’s instant skilling bugs me. All family members will be moving on to town 10, however, and Brock got to dig through the family inventory and select what to leave behind.

I'm so glad Besa is heir! She is gorgeous and I can't wait to see a teenaged Khan-Striker! Sure to be a striking beauty *pun intended* I love the mood lamp :-) that, combined with the walker make me imagine toddler zombies drawn to the light of the lamp who then learn how to walk away from it thanks to the Khan's lol
