Hey, @Deklitch , are you going to post that latest game?

@PeregrineTook , This family has been sorely lacking in Evil.

Khan-Does: Do we really have to eat cake again?
Yes, you do.


James is now Adventurous.


This is how you look when you ask your mom to protect you and she yells at you instead.


Juliet: Don’t worry, little guy, I’ll protect you.


We sent Zelda off to the spa where she met up with some extended family who she was much nicer with.
Zelda: Just setting them up for later.


This is about as Adventurous as James has gotten so far.


Zelda went into labor.
Zelda: I’m fiendishly delighted at my own distress.


Another little boy is born.


Java is a Disciplined Slob, and a werewolf!


Flip: Yes, I know you’re a werewolf, but no, that does not mean you get to go out in the yard.


James is such a good big brother.


Is anyone surprised at Zelda’s choice of learning to talk subjects?


Juliet: This is why we can’t have nice things.


Cake….again.


Java quickly grew more hair and went out to face the world as a Genius.


We’ll leave them discussing whether to buy a chess table and telescope, or just have Isla make yet another laptop unbreakable.

So we went with the computer instead of the chess table. Because math.
Juliet was in the process of learning how to make his final elixir. He only had about 70 more elixirs to make. It sounds like a lot, but after reaching level 10, it should go pretty fast.


Flip tutored Java to help him catch up a little with his brother.
Java: Hey, are you in a hurry to get rid of me?
Flip: No, I’d keep you all here forever if I could.


Catching up won’t be easy. James was ready for his teen birthday.


James’ final traits are Heavy Sleeper, Artistic, Adventurous, and Inappropriate. We’ve been needing someone to laugh and point at birthdays.


With the weekend approaching, the mausoleum job would be best for James. It wasn’t available in the paper so it was off to the cemetery.
James: It’s not a job. It’s an adventure. (for those not from the U.S. or those too young to remember, this is an old army recruiting ad)


Juliet reached level ten in alchemy and completed his lifetime wish – only about 40 to go for his supermax.


Everybody dance now!


Java felt a change coming on.


Ew.


No, that’s not much better.


Isla suddenly felt nauseated.


Apparently it wasn’t from her grandson’s table manners.


Zelda: I don’t care why she’s sick. Booga-booga!
It’s more effective if you actually sneak up behind them.


A quick gender count update: At this point Flip and Isla have 5 daughters and 5 sons with 13 granddaughters and 8 grandsons.

One fine afternoon, Isla went into labor out by the sunflowers. Flip, of course, was nearby playing in their beloved sprinkler.
Zelda had finally returned to work, but I swear I heard evil laughter coming from the direction of the theater.


Both Flip and Isla wished to have a daughter (Flip actually was hanging onto wishes for both genders). Still, they were delighted with their newest addition.


Kilo Khan-Doe immediately celebrated his toddler birthday. His traits are Heavy Sleeper and Loves the Outdoors.


Juliet has paid a lot more attention to his little brother than he ever did to his own kids.
Juliet: You know very well that it’s because I’ve completed all my requirements and you’re not forcing me to mass produce elixirs.


Another birthday….what are you wishing for Java.
Java: That this cake was a pile of tacos.


Java’s traits are Disciplined, Slob, Genius, and Friendly.
Now head out to the grocery store and get a job, ya little slacker, and come home for some tutoring. Your brother is going to complete his requirements tomorrow and time is wasting.




Kilo: It’s just you and me, Victor. It’s 2am and everyone’s asleep. Mom says they need to get me on a schedule, but Dad says why bother as I’ll be a Child sometime tomorrow.


Kilo: No! I don’t want a desk job!


With the all-important skill of learning to say “No” accomplished. Kilo had his birthday. He’s now an Angler.


Kilo: Yes, I am!


Kilo: I wish to Present the Perfect Private Aquarium.
Already?
Kilo: Hey, fish, you’re nowhere near perfect!


The next day, Java made the honor roll and was promoted at work. The family ran down the street to their new house. James was lagging behind as he was trying to complete his latest painting and hated to quit.


With ten children moved out, it’s time to recap their accomplishments.

Thanks, @Deklitch . I'm just now starting to notice an increase in loading time. I think it's been creeping up on me and has now hit my awareness threshold.

Kilo: Hurry, Watcher, take a picture.
But you’re just fishing again.
Kilo: I know. Isn’t it great!
Flip went along on this fishing trip, but repaired the sink and toilet in the men’s room and cleaned it too.
Your Neat watcher thanks you, Flip.
Flip: No prob.


Kilo: See it's after curfew, but I can fish from home. Take a picture.


You’re fishing again.
Kilo: I know, but I’m at the beach. Take a picture!


Flip, what are you doing?
Flip: Fishing for DNA.
*Watcher runs screaming*


The morning before his third straight “A” day at school, Kilo placed 13 perfect fish into bowls and proudly completed his lifetime wish. Thanks to Isla’s perfect produce, Kilo actually caught 7 of them himself. The rest were provided by Christopher many moons ago.


Flip and Isla carefully scooped the fish out and put them back into storage. If a spouse has that LTW later, it’ll be a big time saver.


When he got home from school, honor roll boy had his birthday.


Apparently Flip was not happy about sharing his hairstyle.


Kilo signed up for a job at the cemetery, but won’t be actually starting for a few days.
Kilo: More time for fishing!
Go home and get tutored.


This shark was Kilo’s twentieth type of fish. One challenge down, and now he only needs to catch about 270 more fish. *Watcher starts mumbling incoherently*


Kilo was on the honor roll before his first night at work and just barely missed getting his promotion on his second shift.
He caught his first deathfish when Flip joined him at the cemetery after work.
I forgot to mention, Kilo’s fourth trait is Natural Born Performer.
Kilo: What does a fisherman need with that! Hey, I suddenly feel a song coming on.

Yup, its not like the singing will drive the fish away *tongue in cheek* or maybe the singing will soothe their savage hearts and lead them to the hook!

A suggested fish song for Kilo:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
Once I caught a fish alive
6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Then I let him go again

Why did you let him go?
'Cause he bit my finger, ow!
Which finger did he bite?
This little finger on my right!

@PeregrineTook , It truly is due to math. The family has a stash of 63 liquid job boosters so the singer career so take less than a week. Even with consignment, reaching the top of the fishing career is time consuming and dull.

@Magpie2012 , I hope the second applies.

@Deklitch , Kilo wants to know if you know any sea chanteys.

@Malley , Kilo made a good looking teen. Some teens are so awkward looking, and all the grandkids are stuck in that stage.

Kilo continued fishing but never did catch the exotic Buster Clavell fish.


Before his last night as a cemetery worker, Kilo wanted to catch a few more goldfish. Everywhere he goes in town, he runs into extended family. The Arlo Bunch branch especially gets around.


After getting his promotion at work, Kilo went home to celebrate his birthday.


Kilo is now Irresistible and the proud owner of Kilo’s Karaoke.


Kilo joined the singing career.
Drink the green stuff, Kilo. Trust me on this.


Kilo went to the park to sing for tips and look for attractive women. At least Geoffrey Landgraab is a generous tipper.


He also has a very attractive wife who wants to get to know Kilo better.
No breaking up marriages, Kilo. Just complete the singing telegram.


The rest of the day Kilo ran around town doing singing telegrams…13 of them, I counted. This is some sort of record for me, perhaps because the town is so full. This one was to celebrate the completion of homework.


Kilo auditioned for a gig at Performance Park and stuck around looking for women. He mostly found married women and family members. He did find Judy Bunch very attractive, though. Half of Judy’s family disappeared long ago, including her husband. She is however in a relationship with Iqbal Alvi.
Arlo: Why is he asking what my mom’s sign is?


Isla, being a bit of a matchmaker, invited her friend, Emma Hatch, over.
Isla: Go answer the door, Kilo.


Kilo: Emma, will you be my girlfriend and stay above ground?
Emma: Yes, and I can’t promise anything, but I’ll try.


Kilo had his first performance the next day. He got good reviews from the audience. I’m sure it had nothing to do with them mostly being family.


That night the family got a new member named Jacgueline.


The next night, after a long day of singing telegrams, Kilo had a successful audition at Flying Foxtrot’s Coffeehouse. Emma met him there for a celebratory date.
Kilo: I’ve been working hard for 3 days on my career and I'm a level 8 singer. I would really love it if you would move in with me before all but the tips of your wings disappear below ground.
Emma: Can I buy recipe books?
Kilo: Of course.
Emma: Beat you home!


Emma joined the household and gave herself a makeover that consisted mostly of recombing her hair and toning down her makeup.


Note:
Spouse hunting has become more difficult. There’s still a lot of people in town, but so many are family, and many are married or in relationships. I’ve been hesitant to start cloning spouses because do I really need to raise more children? I realized that I don’t need to raise them so much as age them. I’ll be providing a list of Flip’s DNA samples and asking for your input.

@KRae Sea Shantys

If you ever ever ever ever ever
If you ever ever ever meet a whale
You should never never never never never
You should never never never pull his tail

For if you ever ever ever ever ever
If you ever ever ever pull his tail
You will never never never never never
You will never never never meet another whale

A pirate went to sea sea sea
To see what he could see see see
But all that he could see see see
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea

And from Muppets Treasure Island, just because it is muppets mixed with pirates ...

When I was just a lad, looking for my true vocation
My father said, now son, this choice deserves deliberation
Though you could be a doctor, or perhaps a financier,
My boy why not consider a more challenging career,

Hey ho ho
It's one for all for one
And we'll share and share alike with you and love you like a son
We're gentlemen of fotune and that's what we're proud to be
And when your a professional pirate
You'll be honest brave and free
The soul of decency
You'll be loyal and fair and on the square
And most importantly
When you're a professional pirate
You're always in the best of company

@Deklitch , Why does your knowledge of sea chanteys not surprise me?

Here's the DNA donor clone possibilities: Nancy Landgraab, Meaghan Fay, Iliana Lanerak , Gunther Goth, Nick Alto, Hank Goddard
We just got notified that Geoffrey Landgraab drowned.

@Magpie2012 , I agree those are good choices. I've been itching to clone Gunther.

Kilo’s next show was at the karaoke club. The proprietor said it was great. It had nothing to do with the fact that Kilo owns the place.


When he got home he celebrated by asking Emma to marry him. Emma agreed. Now just wish to get married you two.


Kilo’s singing for tips was disturbed by his older sister making-out with Simis Bachelor. This time Foxtrot was the guilty party.


Kilo: Do I look like a Vocal Legend? Yes, I do!
Kilo maxed his career in 6 days.


Emma was busy too. She read her 28th recipe and completed her lifetime wish. A big shout out to Flip for the wish enhancing serum.


Kilo: Ready to celebrate?


Life went on. Emma and Isla bonded over flowers. A fairy and a gardener have a lot in common.


Kilo: Hey watcher, take a picture. See how happy I am now that I’m back to fishing?
Okay, but this the last fishing picture. You still have 200 more fish to catch.
Kilo: Yes!


Emma’s cooking was coming along nicely.


It would be easier if this didn’t keep happening.


Emma: I wish to get married.
Kilo:   * sensing a disturbance in the force from Pinochle Pond* Me too!


They finally found a quiet moment between massages, pregnancy  book reading, and grilled cheese to get married.


Kilo still does the occasional show.
Kilo: Are you ready for some music?
Apparently.


While her husband was performing and her in-laws were off on a library date, Emma went into labor.


Aw, look what she did all by herself.

The floorboos quickly became toddlers.
Kiki is a Good Loner. She looks like a combination of her parents with her very own skintone.


Karl is Evil and Disciplined. He looks most like Flip and Emma.


Emma: Yay, the girl’s win the walking contest!
Kilo, Kiki, Karl: Contest?


Kilo: Flies might make great bait!
Kiki: Watcher…help.


Karl: Voting? Democracy? A non-benevolent dictatorship is the way to go.
It’s fortunate that he will never age past his teen years.


Cake time once again.
Kiki: I want purple clothes.
Okay, change the clothes, keep the hair.



You can change your clothes, Karl, but keep the attitude.


Karl: I’m searching for evil-doings, evil sims, well just all things evil.


Kiki: Ah, look at the sweet, good little sims.


Interestingly enough, they have not yet discovered each other’s  traits and are pretty good friends.

Meanwhile, Isla’s stomach is acting up again.


Who doesn’t enjoy family fishing time?
Karl Loves the Outdoors so he’s happy. Kiki is Family-Oriented so she’s happy. I’m happy that at least it’s not just Kilo.
Kilo: Hah! You took another fishing picture!


Everyone was all settled in for the night when  WAH WAH WAH
It was so loud that even Echo complained, and she lives way across town.

Karl: I think I’ll do a little night fishing.
Get to bed! It’s a school night and if you can stay awake you should be on the honor roll tomorrow.

The next day, the twins made the honor roll.
Kiki: Ooo, I’m really cute! I even like my clothes, and somehow I just know I’m a Great Kisser.


Karl: Shut up.
What you’re wearing does seem Inappropriate.


There was only time to tutor one teen that night. Kiki was the lucky(?) one.


It seemed more important to get Karl to the dresser and mirror.
Karl: I should be able to fly under the radar now.


The next day while everyone else was away, Isla peacefully gave birth to the newest Khan-Doe out on the lawn.


Lima is an Excitable Heavy Sleeper. He’s very cute, but the kids are all beginning to look the same to me. That’s four boys in a row, by the way.


Flip got home in time to take over the potty-training. He’s trained almost all of the kids and grands, probably 32 out of 35.


Isla took Lima to the library for some quick reading. The night before, the family was notified that VJ Alvi had burned to death. Darya was at the library all scorched and mourning VJ. She’s a witch and I suspect that VJ was the victim of multiple fire blasts. I’m sure it was unintentional. Really.
While they were at the library, they got notification that Kilo had caught his 350th fish and completed all his requirements. I didn’t get a picture. What a shame.


Two more grandkids began their mortuary service, barefoot as usual.


Time for cake again.
Lima: As soon as I eat this cake, I’m going to read a book. Then I was to learn to write and take a class in writing. Oh, and after that I want to write a novel that’s worth more than $30.
Geesh, take a breath. 30 seconds ago you were a toddler.


Karl: What do you mean, you’re good? I feel a pressing need to donate $100 to the Not So Benevolent Society to Undermine the Ocean.


Kiki: Why…you evil thing, you. I’m going to donate $250 to Save Our Oceans.
And so, the oceans of the sim world have become a pawn in the eternal battle between good and evil.


What are you writing, Lima?
Lima: My first sports book named Dodging Balls.
You may want to rethink that title.


Due to early tutoring, Kiki got on the honor roll one day before Karl who vented his frustration on poor Malcolm Landgraab.
Karl: Nah, I’m not frustrated. This is just fun.


The next day, Kilo and his family packed their belongings and moved to this nearby house.


I hope to see you all around town. Maybe Foxtrot won’t win all the Simfests now.

I have been silently reading the Khan-Doe Family Empire, constantly mystified by how gorgeous Flip and Isla's children are.
I thought there has to be more to your story.
Now that I've read Witness Protection, Does of DV, and the Khan RTJ (all recently, I was kinda obsessing), I understand that your founders were very, very carefully selected.

I've also become a huge fan of Flip in the process. I'm happy he's in a story where he lives so long.  ;D

@oshizu , I always felt so bad when Flip died, that when I discovered the Family Empire project he just had to be a founder. With Isla being the culmination of a town jump genetic experiment, how could I not use her. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who power reads stories here.

@Magpie2012 , Rest assured, whether poem or cheer or cheerful poem, Flip appreciates it.

Whatcha up to, Flip.
Flip: Science!


Soon a tiny pink bundle appeared. They named her Meg Fay. That should disguise her origins.


Meg Hates the Outdoors and is Clumsy.
Isla: Don’t you worry, sweetie. We’ll love you and care for you and teach you all your skills so you can have a nice personality.


Isla then took Meg out to the birthday cake table.


It was still early in the morning so she learned to potty and walk before Lima got home from school.
Lima: It’s so fun having a little person in the house!


And yes, that little person is a witch.


While Meg made her toys disappear, Lima became a teen adding the Hopeless Romantic trait.
You can keep the hair. At least it makes you look different from the rest of the family.


Meg learned to talk the next day and had yet another birthday. She’s now Artistic.
Isla: Don’t worry about what you’re wearing. You don’t actually ever have to go to school.


Flip, the expert tutorer, had Meg up to an A in no time.


Lima went to school as usual the next day. When he got home he found that Meg had changed in the most fascinating way. She too is a Hopeless Romatic.


It was Friday, so Lima had his first night’s work at the mausoleum. Flip once again tutored Meg.
Meg: I keep making mistakes!
Flip: Don’t worry, sweetie, you were an infant 3 days ago. You’re doing much better than anyone could ever expect.


While everyone else was otherwise occupied, Isla took a trip to the library. She’d been wanting to reach level ten in charisma for the longest time. She knows 323 sims, is friends with 316 of them, and best friends with 33. She has told zero funny jokes.


Saturday night, Meg had her young adult birthday and is now Lucky. She drank one of Flip’s wish enhancing serums to get the maximum benefit from Living in the Lap of Luxury.
These elixirs are only being used on spouses, not children or grandchildren.


Lima: How is she older than I am? Wasn’t she wearing baby shoes two days ago?
Flip: I’m so glad I cloned you correctly. You aren’t missing any limbs, and you have a head.


Meg: Ooo, magic is fun.
Yes, it is, but the first time you try to cast a love charm, it’s potent cure for you.


Lima: Yes, I know I just got a promotion, but I quit. I want to be a writer, but mostly I just want to never have to wear these clothes again.


On Monday, Lima reached the honor roll and registered in the writer career. Next stop: the birthday cake zone.


Lima’s traits are Heavy Sleeper, Excitable, Bookworm, Hopeless Romantic, and Family Oriented. He wants to be a Professional Author. No surprises there.


Better get to writing, Lima. You need to sell a lot of books.
Lima: That’s okay. I’ve started one called Red Rover Came Over. It’s sure to be a best seller. After all, Tag You’re It! was.

I love the pointy ears on Juliet, James, and Kilo but couldn't figure out where they come from (Isla's hair conceals her ears).
Then I checked shots of Isla's mother and baby Isla--I see, I see.
After trying to create appealing (to me) offspring using my favorite sims (I ended up keeping only 2-3 in the bin out of 30+ babies aged to teen), I've concluded that Flip and Isla are a super special pairing.
But everyone already knew that (I'm so late to the party...)

P.S. I love that you use the term "power-reading," which is empowering!  ;D

@Magpie2012 , The kids should be cute. I'm hoping for a blond. I think Hattie's been the only blond grandchild so far.

@oshizu , I've only saved a few to the library. After I finish the project, I may switch households to save a few more. I think someday I would like to use Hotel in some sort of project. I'd like to see what her kids would look like without Arlo as their father. She might be good for a hundred baby challenge if I ever get up the nerve.


With both Lima and Meg being young adults, they became romantic interests, but they decided to take things slow. Well, slow for the sims.


Why are you just standing there?
Lima: I finished my latest book, Mother May I? Go Ask Your Father, and completed my professional author lifetime wish. You were too slow to get a picture of it.
I do have a problem with that, but in my defense, I didn’t expect that book to be worth over $2,500.


Meg is a professional painter. She has one easel here and one out in the studio. She usually has a painting in progress on both.


Two days after becoming romantic interests, Meg and Lima became boyfriend and girlfriend.


The next night they actually went on a date to the bistro. Romance was in the air.




Lima: You know, I think we could make beautiful floorboos together.
Meg: Well, there’s only one way to know for sure.


Meg’s usual painting routine was interrupted.


Meg: We’re going to have a nooboo.
Lima was overwhelmed with emotion.


Flip and Isla go to a lot of simfests. Foxtrot has always been the winner. I think it’s due to her amazing pyrotechnics.


Kilo was determined to beat his sister this time.
Success! He didn’t even have to set himself on fire.


With the baby due the next day, Meg and Lima decided to was time to make it official. The groom wore a nerdy sweater while the bride wore some of the ugliest maternity clothes ever.


Lima screamed in delight at the natural wonder of childbirth.


Twins!
Meg: Let’s get out the birthday cakes right away.
Lima: No, trust me on this. We’ll wait until Mom and Dad get home from fishing. We need Dad’s accelerated potty-training.


So, we’ll leave them waiting for the grandparents return, and maybe I’ll remember to find out if the littles are witches are not next time.

I went back to have a second look at Hotel and she is really gorgeous--a lovely combination of her parents.
Seeing how Hattie turned out (at every stage of her growth), I would also love to see Hotel's babies with a different father.
Whoa, a 100 baby challenge! Just wow!

Oooh, Lima and Meg's son got Lima's skin tone. Can't wait to see both babies as tooddlers!

(I can't believe it's taken me until last night to notice that the grandchildren share the first letter of the name of the parent born from Isla and Flip.)
