Lei is SO GORGEOUS! Wow! What a knockout!
Between her and Lana... all those men better watch out!

Congratulations on 500 screenshots. I'm looking forward to a great many more!
Oh, Ru, I love him too. <3 You've got such gorgeous Sims!

@Ricalynn I'll give it try. I do prefer writing up on Word though, my spelling is atrocious and it's handy to have spellchecker. As for the screenshots, they're editted in Photoshop so i convert them to jpeg that way.

@oshizu Lana's outfit (and all heirs) is based on a colour theme and sometimes their career/interest. Kessy is black and blue - who doesn't look good in black? I chose blue because her name is Kestrel and birds fly in the sky (blue). Lana is black and purple - purple seems like a colour that's associated with magic/science. Gen 3 is red and you'll find out why when they make an appearance  8)

As I wrote Ru to be 'like' a brother I feel weird about marrying his child into the family but another part of me says: It's just Sims/They aren't blood relatives. And the person I've chosen has gorgeous eyes and is a beautiful Sim too so I gave in =D The Sim is much younger than Gen 3 so I may or may not find someone else if I get too impatient, lol.

Poor Lana, I've neglected her for the most part. I've followed her to work for a few days and then she went alone while I played with Lei, lol. I may have to go back to an old save and have Lana do something as a way of apologising xD Lei is awesome, she's almost an adult and she's maxed one career, I may give her another one straight after her promotion and career items unlock. She's the kind of girl that wants to do everything possible.

@LivvieLove Lei knows how gorgeous she is, that girl will not stop taking selfies! Thank you, 500 seems like an achievement in itself =D Since you and @oshizu like Ru so much I'll share a screenshot of what his/Lana's and his/Lei's kids would have looked like after you meet Gen 3 - I know already and I've had to fan myself when I open up those screenshots. If you want spoilers though I'll be happy to oblige  ;)

@oshizu Okay!

@ManiSims Same here even though they have spent more time unplayed, I'm going through this at an unbelievably slow rate.

@Magpie2012 I'm so pleased you liked the updates, sometimes I doubt myself and never know what people will think. Something uninteresting to me is entertaining to others.

So, I'm holding off gen 3 having a partner. I have the perfect person for them but then I saw another Sim, Summer Holiday's grandchild - such a cute Sim too. But I can't decide if I should go with the original love interest or the Holiday Sim (I know it's weird to say but it's like the Sim is Kessy's sibling/cusin - both are grandchildren of Summer's). Am I overthinking this?

Don't worry too much! Let it flow naturally! Maybe you could let your generation 3 pick? It'll be great regardless!

Sometimes we all overthink it even when we think it's not good at all!  As for the partner.  I had a plan at one point involving one of the A-twins and then when I tried to make magic happen with someone.  They weren't having it.  Much like your kids with the embarassed moodlets and not seeming to want to get it done.  Maybe Gen 3 will help you decide from there.  Otherwise, it sounds like you have 2 individuals that could either join the family or help keep genes alive in the neighborhood via club woohoo.

@LivvieLove & @Ricalynn I think I will let gen 3 decide after kicking both Sims out of the club (to avoid them being caught cheating).

Another thing, I want to plan a fake wedding so I need some very special guests to attend. I will most likely use a mod to add more Sims to the household and CC to spruce them up. PM me if you're interested in sending Sims (can be from your own IDC, a relative/spare or a new creation etc).

31: Za Woka Genava


Lei was more Chant than her older sister: she was musically gifted like Great Granny Janet, a left handed artist like Granny Ely and she was frequently abducted by aliens, just like Mummy.





She was used to travelling alone in the Disc Transporter. There was usually food and drink, a comfy bed (not that she needed to ever use it, the journey lasted about twenty minutes). This evening Lei found some clothes waiting for her with a note: Please wear this!


She beamed down and found the welcome station had been redecorated with familiar looking objects.






“Hey Ryker, just us today?”


“We had a few... last minute cancellations. Jey’s on his way. Sit, have a drink while you wait.”






Sul sul! Lei, you wore the outfit!” Jey sat beside her.


“Wait, you chose this for me?”


“Guilty, teehee.”


“Thanks, I guess. It’s a bit mismatched though; I don’t think Wonder Woman wore a witch’s hat.”


“Ah, I’ll get it right next time. Happy birthday, Lei! Sorry for the small gathering,”


“It’s really OK. Let’s dance!”






“Don’t you have your own dance moves?”


Jey shock his head. “Aliens don’t dance, then we learned from Kessy and ever since we can’t stop.”


“From the way my mum told the story it was Grim who started it, not her.”


“You say toh-ma-toes, we say rah’tos,”






When Lei went off to make drinks, Ryker whispered to his friend, “Tell her now,”


“Shh, later,”


“We’ll be juiced later,”


“Exactly!”


“Oh, Mitri help you.”






“Aw, why are you whispering? Something I should know?”


“Jey has something to say—”


“Ry! Shush!”


“Tell me! I won’t bite. I promise.”






“What do you think of our collection?” Jey jerked a thumb towards a lawn flamingo and what looked like a large snowflake sculpture.


“Kinda out of place? Where’s all the cool alien tech and stuff?”






“This is cool alien stuff. Look at all the things Kessy has smuggled for us. Alas, we have no llamas, we know you are protective of your god.”


Lei chuckled. “You shouldn’t believe everything my mum says. Llamas don’t exist and I certainly don’t worship them.”






“What about dragons?” Perched on the ruins of a wall was a stuffed baby dragon.


“They can only be found in Dragon Valley, that’s in another ’verse, one we can’t get to I’m afraid.”


“That’s what we have Kessy for, she can get anything.”






After finishing their drinks it was another round of dancing, this time Lei showed off her DJ skills. Ryker and Jey squealed with delight as confetti burst out of the booth and rained down on them.





“Any requests?”


“Be Gronk!” They said simultaneously.


“...”


“Please?”


“Oh, mum is such a bad influence on you lot! Fine.”






It was getting late and Lei had school in the morning. She needed to sober up when she returned home. Before she left, she had to know what the boys were whispering about.


“He likes you!” Ryker said in a hurry before Jey could stop him.


“What?”


“He fancies you. Smitten. Luurves. Za woka genava, you know?”






Jey didn’t say a word but he didn’t have to, he was glowing bright pink.





“I do like you. That’s why I wanted to throw you a party. And confess. But I couldn’t go through it on my own, I needed other people here in case I merz’da – chickened out. So, what do you think?”


“I—”


“Take all the time you need, I just wanted to get it off my chest.”






“Jey, I can’t. I’m already in love someone else and he loves me too. We even exchanged promise rings,”





“I see. Of course, you are the most beautiful Sim, who wouldn’t love you?”


“Hey, we can still be friends!” She pulled him into a hug. “I’ve got to go now, promise me we’ll party again sometime, OK?”


“Yes, we’d like that,” Ryker said – Jey was speechless beside him.






“You know, it’s a good thing you’re not her True One.”


“How can you say that?”


“What do you think Kessy would do to you if she found out? Kick our butts to Sixam if we were Sims, as you’re an alien it’d be a black hole for you!”


“Oh, well lucky escape for me. I feel bad for her True One then.”






Aw, that sweet Jey, hope he doesn’t feel too bad about the rejection.

Oooh nooo, here I thought you were doing the big reveal on Lei's "True One" but Jey (who's very cute, btw) got shot down!
(Hmmm, who could it be? Who could it beeeee?!)
I feel bad for Jey but, wow, Lei really gets around, lol. She is one cool lady in her Wonder Woman hotpants, breaking the time/space continuum and breaking hearts!


What a fabulous use of Sixam's launching area and I love how you tied in Kessy's Interstellar Smuggler job with their collection of odd things.
I giggled at how the two aliens have been "corrupted" by Kessy.  Lol, Be Gronk (and you had the little alien image on your DJ computer!)
What is that large object--the girl holding hands to her cheeks? Is it an enlarged sculpture or a painting?

You are the Queen of Sim Settings, truly!  I loved it!

Lei is such a gorgeous girl! She's going to be a real heartbreaker - she already is! ;)
I can't wait to meet this lover of hers. I have no guesses as to who it could be.  :-X

@oshizu Ah ha ha! Sorry to disappoint. Lei is YA in these screenshots and she was engaged (had to say promise ring for her as a teen) and well, I want her guy to be a mystery. You'll see several guys but I won't let on who her True One is until you-know-what when it becomes obvious ;) I loved the idea of Kessy smuggling things for her alien buddies.

Her outfit is a swimsuit with tights on =D

Be Gronk, this song drove me to madness! Kessy wanted it to become popular with aliens in the hopes they'd 'implant' this song into every abductees head xD

The statue is a conversion of Alice from the Vale of Tears (American McGee's Alice/Alice: Madness Returns). I love this statue, I frequently use it for Sixam/alien world builds and my cemetery. This lot was built surprisingly fast for me, it didn't turn out too bad and thank you for always complimenting me <3

@FrancescaFiori He is a cutie, honestly both of them were really lovely but she and Jey connected more.

@LivvieLove You haven't met the guy yet so the guessing game can't begin yet. I was going to delete these screenshots in favour of newer screenshots with several other aliens but I have to thank @oshizu and PMs with her. The 'booty' shot was too awesome to get rid of so I moved this chapter forward instead and I'll work on the other one some time soon. So many things to do at once.

Special wedding update: I'm still building the new dynasty lot (since Saturday, why is this so hard?  :o) but my plan has been written out, I now need to sort out the venue (more building x.x) and give the guests makeovers =D

Finally back to reading and found this awesomeness!!!  I love the party venue.  Those Sixam boys really know how to do it up proud!  Too bad for Jey but at least he was let down fairly gently and supported well by his buddy.  I agree with oshizu.  You always have the best backgrounds and set ups.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

32: Happy Father’s Day


It started with the gathering of some ominous black clouds in the garden.





“It’s finally here, my time. I’ll love you all from, Beyond the Netherworld my girls,”





“Aw, Chant household. I’m going to get my bones broken, right?”





“Dad, I was going to give you the good news,” Lana cried.





“My Mummy sense are tingling, are you feeling flirty, Lei?”


“Mum, that is highly inappropriate! This is Dad’s death scene, stick to the script,”


“All right. Oh, my darling Mitchy, don’t take him away! (Is that dramatic enough?)”






“I’ll give ’em five more minutes,”





“Urgh, why am I not feeling Fiendishly Delighted?”


“Even you have a heart, Max,”






“Hey hey, don’t mind me, just reapin’ not peepin’,”





“Did you say ‘peeping’?”


“Ha, yes! I’ve never seen Ru topless, he looks... good,”


(“Can everyone please stick to the script. Dad you’re dying don’t laugh!”)






“Time to be free, Mitch, you’ve earned the right to a happy Afterlife.”





“My darling, don’t have too much fun without us <3”





“I’ll take good care of him, I promise. (Did you know Mitch is alive in Oshizu’s universe and he’s about to have some nooboos?)”


“Thank, old pal. (No one steals my Mitch away, I need to find this woman!)”






Rest In Peace, Mitchell Kalani.






*


Outtake. Can the background characters resume mourning and not laughing at how pathetic this fight went? Thank you. (Grim won to mine and Kessy’s dismay xD).


“Mum got her butt kicked!”

Awwwww, Nettlejuice, this must have been a tough chapter to write... what a shocking Father's day post!

Despite my deep sadness over having to let your adorable Mitch go (I love his head and facial hair, too!), all of the little asides were hilarious.
I cracked up at Grim's appreciation of Ru's toplessness, which the viewers can share. Way to distract us.
And I love that selfie of Mitch and Kessy.

Rest in peace, Mitch. You will be sorely missed. (And you look too young to go yet!)

I can't believe Kessy lost a fight to Grim--it's only because she's in mourning!
How will Kessy deal with her loss? And what is Lana's news which we never got to hear?

Oh no! This isn't the happy Father's Day update I imagined! Mitch!
:( :'(
I love how everyone had a hard time following it though - they know Mitch is well taken care of... and @oshizu you better hurry up with Amanda's career (I think it's that one) so you can build a biiiiig fence to keep Kessy out. With barbed wire.
And lasers.

Nope. Kessy will still get in. Tell Sara to run like the wind and pray she's faster. XD

@oshizu Mitch died in March and I have spent those months avoiding writing this chapter. Then it was Father's Day and I wanted to get it in, we should celebrate his amazing feat as a loving husband, father and friend =)

Sims are so weird, they were crying and laughing and Lei was the only one taking Mitch's death seriously.

I've held on to that selfie for ages, it was taken after Kessy announced her pregnancy (with Lana) so it was the right time to use it.

Lana's news will be revealed soon, you can probably guess what it'll be. As for Kessy, she'll have to wait a looong time. Meaning Gen 3's wedding >:D


@LivvieLove Sorry! Should have gotten it out soon, lol. Sara will be safe, for now *villainous laughter*


@ManiSims Ru Appreciation Day is the day after Father's Day. Today :P Or should that be every single day? I love that about Mitch, I used to ignore him too but I gave him a chance and I'll never go back to thinking of him as just another townie.

@Nettlejuice

What an absolutely fabulous group shot! (lol, Ab Fab...)  Seriously, it's really great!
By the way, I noticed you had your dynasty stats under spoiler tags, so I plucked up my courage and clicked "Spoiler" for Gen2 Iolana and....it was completely empty, lol.  :o
Was that, like, a trap? haha
