I loved the Moonlight Falls chapters, my fav town in the whole simverse. So much to love, 'interesting' work outfits and of course creepy IF graveyards. Such are the staples of a KRae story!  ;)

@Deklitch , This house is much roomier and I removed all the walls in the common spaces to create even more space, and to give the incense a broader affect, of course.

@CeresIn , I hope tea is cleansing for the nasal passages.

@Magpie2012 , Like button?

@Playalot , The graveyard in Aurora Skies is just not creepy, but I'll do my best.

Abel had his child birthday and immediately sat down with his mother to get a head start on his schooling.


Elsewhere, Micah threw one last elixir at his father and completed his lifetime wish.


Whatcha making, Abel?
Abel: Heh, heh, stink juice.


Abel: Nice decorating Grandpa. Here’s a little gift.
Thadius: Thank you! How thoughtful.
Abel: Smell ya later!


Aja soon became a child. I follow her to school to make sure she actually goes in.


Whatcha making, Aja?
Aja: I’m making something?


An Aja torch, apparently.


Coming home from work, Thadius was greeted by this sight. Farewell, Emerald age 91, you left us too soon.
Emerald: At least I got those pesky bills paid.

@Playalot , I pay all our bills for home and two businesses. This is probably how I will go.

@CeresIn , She's actually pretty good at taking care of her basic needs, and I've only had to remind her to go to school once.

@Magpie2012 , I would love to have a like button.

Abel soon had his teen birthday. His traits are Evil, Hates the Outdoors, Adventurous, and Born Salesman. He looks like Fawn.
Abel really wanted to learn to drive, but he was really awful at it. He would quit after just a few minutes and want to take a bubble bath. Four vials of potent bliss, 3 different instructors, and many days later, he finally learned using Fawn’s new midlife crisis hover car.


So, Fawn, does the Marge Simpson hair make you feel any younger.
Fawn: Maybe I should dye it blue.
Yeah, that would help.


In spite of an in ordinate amount of mirror time, Fawn became a CEO and completed her lifetime wish. And why are two out of three sims thinking about Thadius. Rocking chair envy, plain and simple.


This girl, Linn Valstrom, came home from school with Abel. He doesn’t know much about her, other than she likes a good ghost story.


That was enough for Abel. He asked Linn to prom where they became boyfriend and girlfriend. He found out later that Linn is Good…ah, a Good sim to torture. A match made in heaven, or perhaps somewhere warmer.


A few days later, Aja became a teen. Her traits are Easily Impressed, Absent-Minded, Disciplined, and Bookworm. She has her father’s eye and hair color, but everything else is Fawn.


Clint Berge followed Aja home from school one day. Would he make a good spouse? Well, he has muscly arms and isn’t skinny. The Khan’s are becoming pipe-cleaner thin and could use a little beefing up. Oh, and he rolls his eyes really well.


 Micah Khan in Honor of Not Having a Midlife Crisis, I present you with this Laser Rhythm a-Con.
(Yes, I finally got Into the Future and wanted to test the opportunity bug, and yes, only Micah is accepting skill opportunities and only for the LRaC.)


So, of course, Micah had to go to the future to buy skill books.


He made friends with some descendants, had a non-fatal crash with his jet pack, but he mostly enjoyed zipping around on his hover board.


Back in the present, he continued playing for tips mostly at anyplace indoors. He attracted this rather eclectic group, who were actually quite generous with the tips.


Abel’s YA birthday is right around the corner followed a few days later by Aja. An heir will be selected. I’m leaning in Aja’s direction.
Abel: Unfair! You always liked her best!
True.

Abel became a Young Adult with the traits Evil, Hates the Outdoors, Adventurous, Born Salesman, and Virtuoso. Here’s where that xylophone pays off. He wants to be a Hit Movie Composer. He joined the music career even before getting a makeover.


And after the makeover, Abel looks like an evil, male version of his mother.


Aja is three days younger and wants to write 5 books. Here she is writing number 5, Sports Stats for the Forgetful. She also wants to read all the books in the Simsverse. Fortunately comic books count. She’s up to 30.


Thadius was 100 as of Abel’s YA birthday and has a ridiculous amount of happiness points. He decided to get a teleporter for the family.
Thadius: Must upgrade to perfect teleportation *hammer,curse* Could die any second.


Thadius and Fawn are attracted to each other but have never once flirted. Thank you.
A typical conversation –
Thadius: How’s your day been?
Fawn: You are so ignorant!
And yet they are best friends.


It was finally Aja’s birthday, but it was also prom and even though she didn’t have a date, she really wanted to go. She celebrated her birthday on the sidewalk in front of the school.


And here’s Aja post-makeover. Her traits are Easily Impressed, Absent-Minded, Disciplined, Bookworm, and Hopeless Romantic. She wants to be an Illustrious Author. She is also our designated heir.


The next day was graduation time for not only Abel and Aja but also for about eight others. What always happens when you have more than a dozen sims in one place? Why this, of course. At least it wasn’t Thadius who was 104 at this point.


Time to learn painting Aja, but there’s no rush. You have a lifetime.


Abel: Why are you making me play for tips outdoors?
Because you never know who you’ll run into. Ooh, look, there’s that guy your sister likes and he’s an adult now. Quick, call her.
So Aja got there surprisingly fast, and reconnected with Clint Berge.


He’s Inappropriate so he didn’t mind this at all.
Careful Aja, he must be about twice your weight.


So we’ll leave our lovebirds at the park with an imminent ICD 10 Dx code S34.101A (unspecified lumbar spinal strain initial encounter – cause that’s stuck in my head).

That happened to me recently as well (on graduation day and my household all gathered for one of my sims to graduate, and it seemed like half the town were there for graduation day of their nearest and dearest as well), of course in my case it was one of my household that died of old age that day :(

@Deklitch , Aurora Skies has the biggest child population I've seen without using a story progression mod. I guess it's to make use of all the toddler content.

Things happened quickly.
Abel visited Linn and proposed. They were married on the spot.


He moved into Linn’s family home that she shared with her two dads. Later that day the Khans received notification that one of the dads had died. Abel, what did you do?


That same day, Aja’s boyfriend moved into the Khan house. He has very typical Aurora Skies genetics.
Clint Berge’s traits are Unlucky, Disciplined, Good, Inappropriate, and Ambitious. He wants to be a Deep Sea Diver. Well, that’s both inappropriate and unlucky as Isla Paradiso is not the next town.


Clint soon joined Khans Ignited. He paid his dues.


Aja and Clint went on a very special date.


Aja: Will you make me the happiest woman in this balloon and marry me?
Clint, hopping up and down: Yes, yes!
Careful, big guy.
Wow, that was almost romantic *checks for fever*.

Back at home, Fawn became an elder.
Fawn: Don’t even ask me to change my hair.


The next day, Abel called and suggested that Clint throw a bachelor party.
Okay, since it was Abel.
Blasting your future mother-in-law in the face with fizzy nectar may not usually be the best idea, but Fawn loved it.


The almost twin party dancers, May Flowers and Candy Bar, did their best to attract attention, but people were more interested in Micah’s cookies.


What’s a bachelor party without an elder birthday? Happy birthday, Micah. Now go to bed.


The rest of the family soon retired for the night. Clint got a full night’s sleep and got up to join Abel and Linn who were still dancing in their skivvies. The party didn’t officially end until almost 10am.


Either the walls are thin or the chimes were really loud because right after this Fawn and Micah both wished to have a grandchild.


As for Thadius, well, he was born in Sunset Valley, raised in Twinbrook, raised his own family in Moonlight Falls, and is now living in Aurora Skies. At age 109 will he live long enough to see a fifth world?
He seems at peace with whatever happens.

I was almost going to chide you for that pic that included Clint in his too-close-to-skintone-colored undies. Maybe it's my monitor. Who knows.

Like the party dancers, I too would be interested in cookies.

Good job Thadius! Seeing his fifth town would be awesome.

@Trip nope it's not your monitor lol I had to take a second look because at first glance I thought "OMG nudity on Carl's?!?"

@KRae great chapter and I fervently hope that Thad makes it to world 5! Doesn't meditation and martial arts prolong life? or am i think of something else?

@Trip , Yes, that's the sleepwear with the pinkish hearts on it. What can I say, his favorite color is pink, his skin is pink.

@Magpie2012 , The family is ready to move, and Thadius will be going with them at 114. Someone, who I don't remember, in my legacy made it to 127.

@Malley , My mother-in-law was a pretty good sport, but this would have been too much even for her. She did let the grandkids give her a faux hawk once though.

@CeresIn , Note to self: Recolor Clints undies.

Before long Aja realized that there was a baby on the way.


During this time Clint was completing as many wishes as possible so he could change his lifetime wish from Deep Sea Diver to something he could complete. Now he wants to reach Physical Perfection. Let’s see….no skill points in Athletics or Martial Arts. Perfect! Actually it shouldn’t be too difficult as for an Ambitious sim, he seems to have no interest whatsoever in getting a job.
As soon as Clint started working with the training dummy, Thadius autonomously ran over to coach him.


Yes, level one. Time to spar. Good luck with that mister white belt.


Both Aja and Clint finally wished to get married. They walked all the way downstairs and out the front door in order to have a private wedding by the mailbox of romance.


Right before Aja was due to go into labor, Fawn and Micah went to the park where Fawn decided to retire. The only one working outside the home now is Thadius.


Little Hera Khan was born at home in relative peace (most of the relatives were gone).
Her traits are Good and Heavy sleeper, and all I can tell so far is that she’s pale like her father.


The family will soon be leaving Aurora Skies and those left behind.
C’mon guys at least try to look creepy.


The last three generations have used 2 fertility elixirs and watched maddening amount of kids’ tv and listened to kids’ music every waking moment but have only had single births. I’ve been using the save the family to the bin moving method as it seems to clean things up best and deleting caches regularly, so I’m going to try a factory reset to see if multiple births will make a comeback. We’ll see what happens in the next town.

If I hadn't seen it for myself, I would never have believe a doll cemetery could be non-creepy! I suppose Aurora Skies just doesn't lend itself to the creep factor, even for those horrendously creepy IF dolls! Welcome to the nooboo and I hope you fix your no multiple births bug! I love watching toddler spam! (Ironically, I'm not ready for toddlers to appear in TS4 lol)

@Malley , Even the cemetery in Aurora Skies is lovely.

@Magpie2012 ,Thanks, The IF that Thadius placed there popped back into his inventory upon moving so it will have a second chance at creepiness.

The Khan family packed up and moved to this bright blue house in their 6th town, Hidden Springs.


Hera soon had her birthday. She looks like a combination of many relatives, but mostly like her mother and Mortimer maybe.


Clint, as it turns out, is a very effective, speedy toddler trainer. (Please note the skivvie recolor. It looks much less scandalous.)


This is fortunate because Aja is back to watching kids’ TV. The household has room for twins.
Micah: Woo! I can dance like the bunnies.


I love the way Aja is looking at Clint and Hera.


Before long, Hera has company on the floor. The factory reset worked!


Unfortunately, the floorboos were barely settled in when the Khans had a visitor.
Thadius: No, I didn’t even get a chance to snuggle the little ones.
Grim: You’ve snuggled more than your share. Come along.
Rest in peace, Thadius Khan age 118. We will miss your steady presence.


In a few days the babies became toddlers. This is Hal Khan: Virtuoso and Couch Potato. Except for his eye color, he looks a lot like Clint.


Henry is his slightly younger brother. His trait are Excitable and Absent-minded. I think he favors his mother.


For one night only, three toddlers share the floor.

Hera became a child with the traits Good, Heavy Sleeper, and Workaholic.


This is as close to a family portrait as we’ll ever get of the Khans.


Although Hera’s traits don’t point in any particular direction, she did express an interest in fishing. She might as well learn in a beautiful place.


A toy oven was next on her wish list.


Fawn and Micah decided to get out and enjoy their retirement. What’s better than dancing at the disco for a Hates the Outdoors Party Animal.
Micah: Maybe couch dancing at the Disco?
I always did think that Couch Potato and Party Animal were somewhat conflicting.


Micah’s retirement was cut short by a grim visit. Rest in peace Micah age 91.


The heartbreak was too much for Fawn and a few hours later at age 92, she joined Micah.


Two days later the twins had their birthday.
Hal’s traits are Virtuoso, Couch Potato, and Loves the Outdoors.


Henry is Excitable, Absent-Minded, and a Kleptomaniac.


The boys did not receive special dolls from an obscure relative. Instead they bonded over the dollhouse and are best friends.
Who knew fishing fracas could be so compelling.

@Malley , It's going to be a tough choice. Henry is really absent-minded, though.

@Playalot , I'm not sure that I remember what Clint's everyday clothes even look like.

@CeresIn , For once, I'm probably going to have to wait for the final traits and LTWs.

Hera’s a teen now and has the traits Good, Heavy Sleeper, Workaholic, and Hot-Headed. She has mood swings more days than not.


Maybe it’s the workaholic in her but she seems driven to pranking, and she’s really good at it. She’s never been caught.


Clint is her usual victim. His tally so far is 3 computers, 2 whoopie cushions, and one shower. The sinks are rarely used so they may stay booby trapped until moving time.


Clint reached level 10 in martial arts, and decided with the kids off to school all day he should get a job. Well, I decided he should. He has never wished for any career.


He was at level 10 in athletics and level 7 in handiness, so the military seemed a good fit. The base in Hidden Springs has useable barracks, so Clint, of course, stopped to make an inappropriate post.


Saturday was a big day for the Khans. Clint reached his lifetime goal of Physical Perfection.


Aja became an Illustrious Author.


Hera went to prom alone. She was not voted prom queen. Too busy pulling pranks, I guess.


As for the boys, Henry spent most of his time managing his kingdom.


Hal did the one thing he likes even more than the fishing channel – peeling the skin off his face on the waterslide.
