Wow, Echo and Stiles have quite the...unique relationship?
Loving India as workaholic working from home on the laptop as a mausoleum clerk.  Good stuff!

@Deklitch , You should try this. The requirements are pretty straight-forward, and aging up the kids when they're ready is great. It's also nice that the founders can learn any skills and you don't have to control their offspring forever.

@Magpie2012 , Arlo takes a bit of getting used to. He has really nice traits in this game, and that helped a lot.

@PeregrineTook , I don't know what was up with Echo. India is an autonomous worker at home. I have to make him stop and do something fun before work to get his mood up.

@CeresIn , Thanks!

I'm still in Mexico, but since I burn fairly easily and I don't tan as much as my freckles begin to join together, I used peak sun time yesterday to put together an update.

With Indiaís young adult birthday came the return of the hair.


Indiaís traits are Heavy Sleeper, Friendly, Workaholic, Schmoozer, and Ambitious. His lifetime wish is Scientific Specialist. Here he is all neat and buttoned-down and ready to start work in his business career.


Every bit as important is the spouse search. India found his future at the fire station in one Ms. Agnes Crumplebottom. They found each other quite irresistible.


Later in the week, India found Agnes at home, not an easy task with a firefighter.
India: Agnes, move in with me. You can have a makeover, quit your job, pursue your dreams, and weíre very, very wealthy.
Agnes: You had me at makeover.


Agnes is such a lovely sim. She gets along with everyone, never hits on Flip, is rarely grumpy, and never shuts off the fire despite being frugal.


They settled in nicely together. India got promoted everyday at work the first week and only had 60 analyze and 100 experiments to go for his supermax (yikes!). Agnes was at level 9 in painting and writing (thanks to her multitab) and had joined the writing career.


Sunset Valley is still a very active town where everyone lives forever. We have received notification of untimely deaths (drowning, fire, and electrocution) only three times.
Find the Khan-Doe in this picture (not in a funny hat and striped shirt like Waldo).


After reaching level 7 in his job on Monday, India and Agnes took a couple days off to celebrate their marriage, meaning India worked at home and committed random acts of scienceÖ


Öwhile Agnes did this.

Yay!!  More nooboos!  Agnes is quite lovely once makeover time happens.  The first time I ever played the Sims, I thought Agnes was an elder simply because of the way she's dressed and the haircut.

I think we all have Agnes "at makeover". Science is a pain to supermax (a least for me).

@Deklitch , Go Agnes. (By the way, I'm well into volume 3 of the Demon Cycle)

@PeregrineTook , Her light blond hair could easily be mistaken for gray. I'm enjoying the nooboos. I like toddlers, but with this many, it's nice that from birth to childhood takes less than two days.

@CeresIn , I agree. The science supermax is slow and completing the challenges offers very little benefit.

@Malley , I've got to admit, they all look like they're having more fun after they move out.

Analysis number one hundred! How many experiments do you have left?
India: One hundred.
Ouch.


Speaking of ďouchĒ, Flip has taken up the violin and enjoys serenading Isla.


Isla: We should go one more dates>
Flip: We went on a fishing date yesterday.
Isla: Only because the Watcher wanted us out of the house.
True.


Look what Agnes did all by herself while everyone was at work.


Here is the first born, Iris, a Slob and a Heavy Sleeper. I donít know where that hair color came from.


This is little Ian, Eccentric and Good. He has Agnesís eyes.


While the grandparents potty-trained the kids and taught them to talk, Agnes completed her Illustrious Author lifetime wish. Good job Agnes, you can relax and enjoy your children now.


After a hard day of being born and learning skills, the floorboos crashed on their comfy carpet.


The next day was Saturday and everyone was up early to complete the last of the toddler training.
India: Iím working from home so I can get my last promotion Monday.
No youíre not. Youíre playing video games.


They finished up the training and hauled out the birthday cakes.
Iris added the trait Friendly, but, maybe itís just me, she looks like she may have some evil suppressed somewhere.


Ian has become Over-Emotional.
Ian: I donít know whether to laugh or cry.


On that note, weíll leave our happy (or sad) little family for today and ďseeĒ you soon from back in the States.

Shouldn't he give them back to her and get his own eyes? :)
Sorry, couldn't resist.

@PeregrineTook , Agnes produces cute kids, although I've never paired her with Arlo.

@CeresIn , I particularly like these two kids perhaps because I've left them rather free-range and they're fun to watch.

@Deklitch , You know, I was thinking the same thing as I wrote that "Hey, she might need those eyes!"

Iris wanted to learn to fish and become best friends with her grandmother. Luckily in the Khan-Doe household thatís generally a two for one deal.


Ian did not wish to do this. He was forced and in the bathroom no less.


This is India leaving work after reaching level ten in his business career. I guess a power broker can dress any way he wants. He had already purchased the India Minds His Own Business Towers so all he needs to do is complete another 70 experiments or so.


Isla: Our little boy is all grown up. Time to make another.


Itís good to see that Isla has maintained her maternity fashion sense.


Iris: Iím a slob. I leave puddles. I like it.
Well, your pregnant grandma doesnít so clean it up.


Iris: Hey, move it! This zebra isnít going to ride itself.
Ian: Iím complementing Grandmaís cooking so back off. Weíre both very emotional right now.


Flip: Finally, fish number 350!


Isla: Sorry to interrupt a hard working man in his power suit, but it looks like youíre finally going to fulfill that have ten children wish.


The twins soon hit the honor roll and had their next birthday.
Iris added Good Sense of Humor to Slob, Heavy Sleeper, and Friendly.


Ian is now Eccentric, Good, Over-Emotional, and Brave. They both got jobs at the mausoleum.

The next day, Isla gave birth to her tenth child, a boy named Juliet.


There was tutoring to be done so Juliet had to wait until the next morning to become a toddler.


Well at least Juliet got a positive moodlet from hearing a fascinating lecture.


Juliet is an Excitable Heavy Sleeper.
Juliet: My. Name. Is. Juliet.
I know. Arenít you excited?

@PeregrineTook , All the grandkids are special in their own way. Some are just more special. It's probably good that I have no grands.

@hazelnut , That's what I get for refusing to influence gender. And yes, Yay!


Isla: You can do this, little guy. It may be your first time, but Iím an expert.

Juliet: Why are we talking about high heels?
Flip: No idea.


How many to go?
India: 30, maybe.
Will glaring at it help?
India: Canít hurt.


Flip has been collecting DNA samples around town.
Meaghan Fay was very cooperative.


Flip had to chase down Gunther Goth, but in the end he cooperated as well.
HmmÖmight actually use this one.

It was soon birthday time again.


Juliet seems to be a very nice combination of his parents. His latest trait is Supernatural Fan.
Juliet: You can call me Jules or JK.
Thanks, but I'll stick to Juliet.


Flip tutored Juliet up to an A in practically no time.


Iris: *telling a joke* and so the bear ate the bug!
Ian: Oh no, the poor bug! The poor bear!


After tutoring, Juliet went to the park to fulfill his desire to socialize with a supernatural.
Ew, the park was pretty much covered with rank hotdogs and burgers, and no Iris had not been there lately, but Iím sure sheíd love it.


When he returned home, Juliet was almost captured by the monster under Ianís bed. Maybe that explains Ianís moodiness.


The next night, Iris and Ian both received a promotion at work.
Iris: Whoopee!


Ian: Sigh.


Hurry up, India! Your teens are on the honor roll and you can move as soon as you complete this final experiment.
Of course, it was a failure and thereís another radioactive cockroach on the loose.


While the family celebrated Michael Bachelorís birthday, India celebrated never having to complete another experiment.


The little family moved to Agnesí original house. It seemed only fitting. Iíll miss them, but not the science challenges.

@PeregrineTook , I would too, but I've got no time. There's always someone new coming along.

Itís time to become a teen, Juliet.
Looking good, kiddo!


Thatís better. Juliet is now feeling quite Irresistible.


Juliet took his first all-important trip to the elixir store. Itís a great place to meet supernaturals.
Juliet: Hi, I see youíre a witch. Someday Iím going to own this place.
Tamara Donner: *crickets*


Juliet rushed home to learn some alchemy.


Then to make that first elixir. Fortunately Flip had stored some cure elixirs ages ago.


Number oneÖonly forty-nine to go.


Like most of the Khan-Doe teens, Juliet got a job at the mausoleum and quit just as soon as he could. He is now an elixir professional.


Yep.


Two days later he made the honor roll and had his birthday. Nice look there, Juliet.


Okay, thatís better. Julietís traits are Heavy Sleeper, Excitable, Supernatural Fan, Irresistible, and Lucky, and Surprise! He wants to be an Alchemy Artisan.


Now that youíre all grown up, itís time to try out that irresistible trait.
Juliet: Youíre exactly the werewolf Iíve been looking for my entire adult life (2 days).
Zelda: I know.


Flip: It looks like kid number ten is taken care of. Hey, Iliana how about a DNA sample for future consideration.
Iliana: Sounds great!

@Malley , Isla and Flip have produced a bunch of pretty children.

@PeregrineTook , I don't have Lucky Palms so I don't know how that works, but you know I'd do it if I could.

@Magpie2012 , They only need 15 children so no Romeo, but Oscar is a possibility.

@CeresIn , Only in the Sims....I hope.

Immediately after she moved in, Juliet and Zelda were engaged.
Juliet: I want to marry Zelda.
Zelda: I want to see Islaís ghost.
Uhoh.


Juliet: Here *bam*, have a vial of bliss.
Zelda: Bwahaha! Iím fiendishly delighted at your misery.
Juliet: Iím miserable?
Zelda: Just looking to the future.


After joining the sprinkler brigade, Zelda realized she was pregnant. She's hoping for a yeti.
Zelda: Okay, okay, I want to get married too.



Done.


The next day at the park, everyone became blissful at least once.


Juliet: What do I do? *screams*
Zelda: *fiendishly delighted* I warned you.


Here we have the result of all that screaming: James, and Artistic Heavy Sleeper. Not a yeti, not even a werewolf.


Flip: Weíre going to be best friends in no time.


No, Flip, no! Donít you teach that baby that stupid cheer.


So why arenít you participating in the skilling, Zelda?
Zelda: BLURG


Juliet: 48, 49, 50! Yay!
Thornton: I donít think Iíve ever been so happy.


The family dropped into their beds, um rugs, exhausted that night.
Goodnight, little James. Tomorrow you will be a child.
