@Playalot , If it had been Belisama's choice, perhaps there would be a toddler in that walker.

@Deklitch , I learned from the life states dynasty that I quite like insane sims.

@Magpie2012 , Ooo, toddler zombies! I'm a major fan of TWD and ZNation.

The Khans made it safely to Dragon Valley without Belisama attempting to blow up their transport. They settled in at this house conveniently located across the street from a pub.


Some neighbors paid a visit. No visit is complete without a ghost story…


…or a brawl.


The floorboos have a new nanny, Debby the purple dragon.


Sebastian reached level 10 on the bass. He was at level 3 on the guitar and piano. I not sure he even knew what drums are. Better get busy One Sim Band wannabe.


The nooboos finally became toddlers. I know it was only 3 days, but it sure seemed longer.
Dane has his mother’s coloring (yes!) and his father’s bone structure and lips. I’m not sure about his eyes yet.


Damia is all Belisama except without the red streaks. This is a very scary toddler.


It was Brock’s day off so he, Belisama, and little Damia moved to this house across town. The family paid more than 150,000. The peace was well worth it. I would have gladly paid 1.5 million.


A sense of calm settled over the household. Dane quickly learned his toddler skills. A round of applause, please, for Tiffani and her potty emptying efforts. She must have a sensitive nose because she’ll come downstairs to perform the chore.


The elder sparkles hit Marc squarely in his 5th lumbar vertebra.


They hit Tiffani the next night at the neighbors’ party. Hey, can’t you smell the potty from there?


Besa is making progress on her career. She now has a uniform and a squad car.


Seb reached level 10 on the piano and has just been introduced to the drums. He’s at level 7 in the guitar, I think. His bass has been gifted to Marc, and Tiffani got the piano. When he plays autonomously, I want it to be on an instrument he hasn’t maxed.


Enjoy Peaches while you can little guy. Tomorrow you’ll be a child and will soon feel compelled to give it to Gramps.

Yay for IF Graveyards continuing into the future ;-D

The idea of toddler zombies freaks me out! I hate creepy little kids (sorry, Damia) so movies like The Grudge and The Ring totally screw with my mind for days afterwards (I still can't help being addicted to them though lol)

Maybe we should have left Belisima in the Graveyard instead of the walker lol

@Playalot , Poor Damia indeed. It does not get any better.

@Magpie2012 , Bridgeport would not let the Khans leave without taking Belisama.

Dane had his birthday and added Virtuoso to Perceptive and Insane. So many virtuosos.


Dane: Mom, you smell like garbage.
Besa: Just part of the job.
Dane: Work stinks.


Dane was excited about his first day of school.


On his second day, he ran into his cousin, Damia. Her traits are now Slob, Easily Impressed, and Mean-Spirited. Brock must have a wonderful home life.


Why does this seem like a good idea?


Some O’Reillys came to visit. This is the baby that’s unborn at the beginning. He’s cute, but not a girl. Too bad. (This kid is always a boy for me. Anyone else?)


Sebastian is still drumming, heading toward level 10 with just the guitar to complete after that. He’s sporting his new midlife crisis hair and little else.


On the night before Dane’s teen birthday, this hip trio jammed half the night away.


We’ll let them play us out.

Dane had his teen birthday. His traits are now Perceptive, Insane, Virtuoso, and Neat. Other than his coloring, he looks a lot like Sebastian.


He was feeling a bit stressed after his first attempt at learning to drive and gave himself a good talking to.


Dane went upstairs and made his parents bed.
Dane: Okay, feeling better now.


Sebastian maxed his guitar skill and completed his lifetime wish. I think I’m even happier than he is.


Family jam time, everyone has an instrument now, and they’ve all wished to form a band. Well, we’ll see. (My kids say that means no.)


Once again, Dane ran into Damia at school. Her traits are now Slob, Easily Impressed, Mean-Spirited, and Unflirty. She is the anti-heir.


On his first teen weekend, Dane went to the park to play guitar and meet people – specifically female teen people. He got the attracted moodlet with all of them. Girls just seem to love crazy guitarists.


On her next day at work Besa reached level 10 and completed her lifetime wish. It might have happened faster, but she had quit the whole report thing a while back.


At age 92, Tiffani went across the street to the pub and retired. This is the family’s home away from home. A lot of their friends seem to hang out there well into the wee, small hours.


Dane went home after school with the Eames boy, but was distracted by his younger sister, Gabrielle. She’s Friendly and a Technophobe and loves watching the stars. Oh, and she’s a werewolf.


Dane wished to reach level ten in his guitar skill, and it would be good to do it before moving. He and Tiffani went to the park to jam. It was getting kind of late when Tiffani began to feel a bit light-headed, light-bodied too. Farewell Tiffani, age 95, you’ll be remembered as being a master chef who could not be trusted alone around the stove. Thanks for all the perfect fruit parfait.


The Sunday before Dane’s birthday, the remaining family returned to the park to jam. It was a successful trip. Dane reached level 10, but most importantly Marc, 98 at the time, did not die.

Dane is now a young adult. His traits are Perceptive, Insane, Virtuoso, Neat, and Excitable. He wants to be a Vocal Legend. Way back in Moonlight Falls (town #4) Micah produced 44 liquid job boosters, and they’ve just been sitting in storage. Time to go dig through that chest, Dane.


Dane was then off to the park to sing for tips. His girlfriend, Gabrielle, and her brother were his very first audience. Hey Gabi, it’s 11am on a Tuesday and you’re still a teen. You should be in school.
Gabi: You’re not my watcher!
Just you wait little girl.


The crowd got a lot bigger.


Dane soon started receiving requests for sing-o-grams.
Some were easy.


Others were not so smooth.


The next day at graduation, Dane discovered that Gabrielle had aged up too and invited her over. Dane and the easel on the front porch convinced her to move in. Dane asked her to forsake her wolfiness and off she ran to the spa. I would like to know how a spa manages that trick.


When she got back home we cleaned her up. See? Having a watcher is a good thing…really.


Gabrielle’s traits are Brave, Artistic, Technophobe, Photographer’s Eye, and Friendly. Her lifetime wish is Visionary. Let’s give that woman a multitab and a paint brush.


Gabrielle will be the mother of the last heir. The child will be conceived and born in the next town, and will only need to become a Young Adult and select a lifetime wish. The family waited until the next day to move so Sebastian could have his birthday in Dragon Valley.


Farewell, Dragon Valley and those left behind.

Loved the shot of Dane just walking off over the passed out Sim.  Good timing on that one!
Nice makeover on Gabrielle.  She has a nice, artsy look that's also quite sophisticated.

@Deklitch , You mean a hundred IF in the cemetery challenge? I'll have to look up the rules on that. Actually I'm thinking of starting a Khan-Doe Family Empire project next.

@PeregrineTook , Dane was trying to do a cheer up sing-a-gram for a vampire who had passed out from fear. He did manage to wake her up before she fried.

@CeresIn , Thanks for reading and the encouragement. It's much appreciated.

The Khans arrived in their last town Isla Paradiso. They’ve been moving into empty premade houses. Isla Paradiso doesn’t have very big houses. In fact there were only two that even had two bedrooms. They chose this house with a hilly lot as the best possibility and turn the gym over the garage into a bedroom for Grandpa Marc. He may have to share with the next heir.


New town…old routine. Dane went to the park to perform for tips and meet people. By the end of the day, he knew 19 sims and had 10 friends (and apparently told one autonomous funny joke).


Before midnight, a new heir was on the way.


Their first night, the Khans had an unwelcome guest. Brave Sebastian beat the snot out of him while brave Gabrielle waited her turn.


Dane had his very first performance. The proprietor declared it great. Nobody threw anything, such a polite audience.


Singing telegrams are not easy in Isla Paradiso. By the time Dane caught a water taxi and got to the location, the job had disappeared. From now on he will be more selective on what jobs he accepts.


The town’s ghosts, however, are generous tippers. $188, not bad.


Once again, the parents to be did not wish to get married until the morning of the impending arrival. They had a quick wedding in front of some very disinterested family members.


Sure enough, at 11:15pm Isla Khan joined the family. She has her mama’s skin color. I’m pretty excited about that.


Before Gabrielle could even complete her first snuggle, the camera was pulled out to the deck. I guess Marc, age 106, really did not want to share his room.

@Magpie2012 , I think the latest Khan has founder potential.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled program on the Watcher Baking Network for this breaking news:
KHAN TODDLER ADORABLE








We now resume our regularly scheduled program “Gluten-Free Baking for the Digestively Impaired”.

Okay, so other stuff happened.
Besa was stunned to become an elder.


Sebastian took up writing as an elder.


Dane completed his lifetime wish.


As did Gabrielle.


But who cares? Tomorrow the last Khan floorboo will be a Child.


Merry Christmas, everyone! “See” you after the holiday.

@PeregrineTook , Grandpa Marc obviously had no judgment.

@Playalot , Thank you! I hope you had a lovely Christmas.

@CeresIn , I love the way Isla looks. I have future plans for her. As soon as she has her YA birthday, she being saved to the bin.


On becoming a child, Isla got the trait Family Oriented. Of course, she’s the one who will not be having children.


Isla’s child years went quickly. She was tutored and did well in school…


…played on the waterslide…


…and was traumatized by her Grandpa Sebastian’s (age 91) death. You know, just the usual.


She soon had her teen birthday and added Angler to Easily Impressed, Good, and Family Oriented. She has exhibited absolutely no interest in fishing.


One of the first things Isla wanted to do was to learn to drive.


It was going really well until she drove into the ocean and emerged on the next island beneath the sand. Gabrielle was reset to a different island, the car was sent back home to the garage, and Isla ran around until she completed level 3. Well, whatever works.


Isla learned charisma from her good buddy, Debby.


Jamming with the family, she met many new friends.


Isla was all set to get her picture taken getting into the limo for prom. Unfortunately at that very moment the Khans lost their drummer. Rest in peace, Besa Khan age 91. We both thought you should live much longer.


The first notice we got from prom that Isla was having a great time and was starting to have strong feelings for Dayna. This is Dayna leaving prom.


And this is our prom queen on her way home. I guess it’s a good thing she won’t have to produce babies.

Isla has had, perhaps, the most outstanding experience of learning to drive ever!!  Also, I love how contrary she is.  Angler trait, no desire to fish.  Not having a baby?  Who cares, she likes a girl.  Isla's awesome!  Way to save the best for last  :=)

@PeregrineTook , Isla has been great, but her teen years seemed to last forever.

Isla still had a week to go before her next birthday. She’d already been on the honor roll for 3 days, and there was really nothing she needed to accomplish. I decided to set the speed at two, and instead of Watching them I would just watch them.
Predictably, Dane did a lot of this.


Gabi painted most of the time. I sold her paintings when she filled all her easels.


Surprisingly little of this happened.


It was replaced by this.


I let Dane go to a party. He managed to free himself and go home.


Dane actually made pretty good progress on his own toward level 10 in logic.


Isla increased her charisma, did her homework every day, and only got put in time out once.


When Gabi got stir crazy, I sent her to the park. All on her own she went up a level on the piano and made over $300 in tips. She stayed there half the night before returning home.


The week was probably toughest on Dane. After reaching the top as a Singer, he switched to the education career. He reached the top of that career and joined medicine. Unwatched, he went from level 2 to level 6 in just one week. It got rough when he was on call.


When he got really tired, he made poor choices like relaxing instead of just going to sleep.


They managed to feed themselves, sleep, and keep showered….mostly, and it was soon Isla’s birthday.
Her traits are now Easily Impressed, Good, Family Oriented, Angler, and Savvy Sculptor. She wants to be Surrounded by Family.


We will leave the Khans jamming forever in the park. Time to stick a fork in this project. It’s done.

Are there any worlds which you used that you would uninstall if you were to try the challenge again?

Congratulations.  Not that I had any favorites in this story, but Isla was my favorite.  She wishes to be surrounded by family.  An Isla project looming?  One with lots of Isla genetics being passed on?

@Deklitch , Thanks. I'm a big fan of the genetics of Dragon Valley. If I had a pick a town to delete, it would be Monte Vista or Isla Paradiso. The roads in Monte Vista are so windy that it takes forever to get anywhere. Isla Paradiso is a little laggy even with houseboats bulldozed.

@PeregrineTook , I do have plans for Isla. In fact, though I haven't started playing it yet, I written an intro of sorts for a family empire.

@PeregrineTook , There is a project by Alexrandria called the Family Empire. I'll provide a link in my first post. I can't find one that's ever been completed. It'll take a lot of planning (my forte). What I'm most worried about is file bloat.
