The Took Immortal Dynasty, An Important and Long-Awaited Birthday!!!
« Reply #125 on: September 22, 2017, 08:06:47 PM »
Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household to find Abernathy making plans for the future.



Abernathy:  Hey, little Cowan girl!  I knew your mom back when we were both just kids.  Maybe you'll become a close friend to my grandchild.
Susanna Munson:  Ummm, I'm not a Cowan girl...
Abernathy:  Sure you are!  Anyway, I'll let you know once the little guy's actually born.
Susanna:  Wait, you're trying to set me up with an unborn child?
Abernathy:  Unconcieved, technically, but who's counting?  (walks away)
Susanna:  ...I'm counting...



Chantons:  With the lights out, it's less dangerous
                 Here we are now, entertain us
                 I feel stupid and contagious
                 Here we are now, entertain us

Robyn:  Hahaha, Oh, Chantons, you're hilarious!
Pippin:  ...I don't get it.
Robyn:  That's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."  Because I'm still a teen?
Pippin:  ...oh.  Yeah.  You are.  (sigh)  Anyway, elsewhere...



Gaivan:  ...and that's...because we were...and that you could...?
Max Villareal:  So...Timmy's in the well?
Pippin:  He's asking if you'll be on standby to become our new pollinator after Elvis-Looking Pollinator passes on.
Max:  Oh.  Planning ahead.  That's practical, even if a bit cold and harsh.  May I ask what it is about me that made you want to choose me?
Gaivan:  Shallow...and that Pippin...because genes...
Pippin:  He said it's your great personality.
Max:  Aww, I'm so flattered!



Pippin:  Looks like Elvis-Looking Pollinator is still doing just fine.
Elvis-Looking Pollinator:  Oh, mama, my heart's a-poundin'.
Random Girl:  Oh my, you're such a charmer!
Pippin:  Yeah he is.



Izumi:  Umm, sweetie?  Did we forget to do anything today?  Like maybe get dressed?  You do realize you aren't built like Otis, right?
Chantons:  While my guitar gently weeps
Pippin:  Aww, poor guy.   But seriously, go put some clothes on.



Pippin:  After getting in some quality time with a new friend, Elvis-Looking Pollinator went to visit the child he had with one of the Pancakes girls.  Pretty sure it was Macie.  They're so identical!



Pippin:  He didn't quite make it to the crib before this happened...and I have no idea why he wandered into the bathroom to die...
Grim:  Eh, I get this sort of thing pretty often.  By the way, he had his child with Chelsie.  Not this lovely angel right here.
Macie:  Grim, you get me.  You really get me.
Grim:  Yeah I do, darlin'.
Pippin:  Oh, Grim, why can't we have you as our pollinator?



Chantons:  Little girls, little girls
                 Everywhere I turn I can see them

Pippin:  Yep!  The redheaded Liz Rouse and half-alien Ashley Cowan are especially strong candidates if we have a male heir!  Maybe we should collect some fruit for Robyn...
Izumi:  Gotta convince her to actually have a baby first.
Pippin:  Psh, you and your details!  Anyway, we move in Max and he gets right to work.



Laurie:  Ugh.  I can't believe I'm being called here for some disgusting pollinator instead of to be the heir's bride.  Still, gotta make sure these amazing genes become part of the dynasty to immortalize how incredible I am.
Pippin:  She's so right.  Why did I agree to let Chantons have say in who he marries?  (sigh)



Max:  ...Oh.  Hello.  I'm Max.  I apologize for being stunned there for a moment.  I'd been told you were lovely, but I had no idea how incredibly gorgeous you were!
Laurie:  Yes.  Yes I am.  And I forgive you for not making Chantons pick me, Pippin. 
Pippin:  Kind of like your new boy toy?
Laurie:  Oh yes!  Me-OW!



Max:  Laurie, I know we've only just met and that I don't deserve someone as amazing as you, but...will you be my girlfriend?
Laurie:  Eh, I know I could do better...but yes.
Max:  OH MY GOODNESS!!! I'M SO HAPPY!!!!
Laurie:  Yes, Pippin, I forgive you.  C''mon, boy toy.
Max:  Yes, ma'am!



Pippin:  Umm, nice granny jammies, Laurie.
Laurie:  Hush, Pippin.
Izumi:  Umm, Pippin?  You're missing an important birthday over here.
Pippin:  Robyn's finally aging up?!??!?!!??



Pippin:  Oh.  Dang it.  It's just Abernathy.  Well, I suppose that's good too.  I guess.
Izumi:  Way to be supportive, Pippin.



Abernathy:  UGH!!  My back!!!
Gaivan:  Well it's...and that...because when they...and so forth.
Abernathy:  Okay, I'll keep that in mind.
Pippin:  Wait, you understood him?
Abernathy:  No.  I gained arthritis, not mind-reading powers.
Pippin:  Well, back to Max.
Max:  But do I have to?
Pippin:  Yep.  Too late to back out now, you accepted the job.



Max:  (sigh)  So, Guadelupe, you're really quite lovely, but I'm very committed to Laurie and I'm afraid that if you and I were to be together that it would be rather shallow and meaningless, so if you don't want to...
Guadelupe:  Oh, I'm totally fine with it!  Now, let's get down to business, you big hunk of manliness!
Max:  (sigh)



Izumi:  I'm going to invite Robyn over so we can bond while giving Max a makeover.
Pippin:  What?
Izumi:  He's no Otis, but he's still yummy!
Pippin:  (facepalm)  But meantime, Robyn is...



Pippin:  still a teen.  (sigh)
Izumi:  But things are going well.
Pippin:  True, We now have two immortal elders and Chantons only has 4 more promotions before he'll have completed his leg of the journey.  That means we'll probably be looking at some down time as we wait for him to age up twice and his child to become a teen.  Too bad I couldn't force Chantons to marry Laurie.
Izumi:  Don't make me call Rieko...
Pippin:  Sorry.

Oh Pippin, I giggled and guffawed, in a most indignified manner, through your whole update.

Farewell, Elvis-Looking-Pollinator. Your time with the Tooks was brief but, we all hope, genetically productive!
Well, hello Max! Thanks to Pippin, we learn that Max ages very well, indeed. And he's smoove talker, lol!

I know Chantons chose Robyn but, yowza, Laurie's curves are amaaazing! Look at that wasp waist, ample hips, and teeny-tiny ankles! And her shelf booty! I mean, just wow!
I'm really looking forward to seeing her child with Max! And how sweet that he wants to stay committed to Laurie. <3
Pippin, I feel your regrets over losing Laurie. Let's hope you manage to finagle one of her descendants back into the dynasty household in the future.  ;)

Laughed heartily at Chantons checking out all the under-aged local talent.

Soooo, how long until Robyn's young adult birthday?  ;D

I will always laugh at your puns, Pip. I think they're brilliant, even the occasionally lame misunderstood ones  ;D

Way to go with the curveball there, Chantons! But, why, oh why, did she have to be a teen!!! Now we are going to have to wait forever for the next generation of Tooks (kinda like we did with Abe and Izumi, only in reverse lol)

E-L-E, you were a huge help to the household and may your pollinating endeavors not go pear-shaped (yeah that was lame, I know, but I couldn't resist)

I was reading the first bit of the last update between ChansRoby, and I was thinking "I swear I know that song?!?" And then Robyn mentioned the name and I had a major d'oh moment. I mean, really, I was just listening to them last night!!! Of course it was going to be familiar  :-[

Much love always my Dear Pippin!

Nice tease with the chapter title! I was really hoping for Robyn's birthday! She's so adorable, and she doesn't mind being serenaded with Nirvana! She's a keeper for sure.

Very glad Laurie's genes are being passed on, though. She's valuable. Good work, Max. Also, high five on the "Timmy's in the well" joke. Ten points.

My other favorite part was Izumi throwing shade at her own son's physique. Lol. She's right though. He's no Otis. But who is? Miss you, Otis. And Elvis Looking Pollinator. He was a favorite, too. That's the trouble with elderly pollinators. Gone too soon, all of them!

Yes, Laurie is soooooooooooooooooooo gorgeous.  I really wanted Chantons to autonomously gravitate towards his spouse.  I'll have to remember to be shallow next time  ;=)
Oh, you're anxious for Robyn's birthday?  I think I can help with that!

Yeah, lyrics without music often confuse people.  It's quite amusing, really.
The ChansRoby is quite adorable.  Both as a ship name and as a couple  ;=)  I'm quite excited to see how lovely their child ends up being.
Glad you enjoy my puns (even the bad ones).

Ten points for Ravensclaw, eh?  Excellent!
Robyn is such a cutie.  I'm definitely aware of how insanely lovely Laurie is, but Chantons definitely found a winner with Robyn...other than her traits.  Of course, it does make her quite enjoyable to write.
Otis was clearly Izumi's favorite (even though she had that tiny pink bar with Don).  Elderly pollinators pass away fairly quickly, but ti does keep the neighborhood gene pool more diverse. 

And now, on with the show!!!

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!!
« Reply #130 on: September 30, 2017, 12:18:56 PM »
Pippin:  When last we left the Took Household, young Robyn was still too young, but now...



Pippin:  she is still too young.
Robyn:  I'm not apologizing for being my age.
Pippin:  Well...you should...
Izumi:  Way to butter up the reluctant future mother of gen 4.
Pippin:  I mean...I should apologize...to you...for being...
Izumi:  He means you're perfect and wonderful, Robyn.
Robyn:  Oh.  Okay, thanks!
Pippin:  (sigh)  Thanks, Izumi.  Let's check in on Max.



Max:  ...so it's really fine if you don't want to, because Laurie and I...
Kaila:  Nope!!  No backing out, big guy!  Have you seen some of the pollinators that come through here?  I'm getting a chunk of hunk while I can!!
Max:  (sigh)
Pippin:  And speaking of Laurie,



Pippin:  here she is while very pregnant working hard to scrub the toilet clean.  Why, oh why, did I wait to see who Chantons would pick instead of forcing him to marry her?
Laurie:  You're such a romantic, Pippin.
Pippin:  It's true.
Laurie:  ...I was being sarcastic...
Pippin:  Too late!  You can't take it back!!!
Izumi:  And speaking of backs...



Izumi:  OWWW!!!
Pippin:  Nice transition!
Izumi:  Thanks.
Pippin:  And may I say, you've aged quite gracefully?  Want to dye your hair back to red?
Izumi:  Nope.  I'm staying au natural!
Pippin:  ...please?
Izumi:  Nope, but speaking of redheads...



Max:  So, Macie, I know you're the prettier twin, and I think you deserve true love, so we should probably not...
Macie:  I object!  That stupid Abernathy rejected me, but you do not get that choice, pollinator!!
Max:  But I...
Macie:  Pollinating!!!
Max:  (sigh)
Pippin:  And speaking of men and women coming together...



Pippin:  Chantons briefly formed a two-piece band with this random girl.  However, she had disappeared from his relationship panel by the next day.  Curse you, culling!!  However, Ulrike Faust's daughter Adaline was not culled.



Adaline:  Whew!  You ready for round two, hot stuff?
Max:  Only if...you want...Grim to...come visit...
Pippin:  However, another member of this household was making sure he'd avoid visits from Grim.



Gaivan:  Doesn't the flavor simply burst upon your palette?
Abernathy:  Really?  The first time I can ever understand something you say and it's about magic fishcake?
Izumi:  Pretty sure the Spiffendales have that term copyrighted.
Abernathy:  ...fish and flowers taste weird together...
Pippin:  Woot woot!!  Two immortals locked into place!!!  Now, I wonder how Robyn is progressing with becoming less teenaged?



Izumi:  No, really, Max, all pollinators get makeovers while supervised by the dynasty spouses.  It's part of our responsibility.
Max:  Well, if you say so...
Robyn:  Would it be tacky if I take photos?
Izumi:  No.  It would be tacky if you didn't share them.



Max:  Umm, you're sure this isn't too...revealing?
Robyn:  OHMYGOSH!!!  The eye candy actually fell for that nonsense!!  You're a genius, Izumi!!!
Izumi:  Yep, and remember our deal?
Robyn:  (sigh) Okay, one baby.
Pippin:  Really?  You bartered oogling Max's body for Robyn agreeing to have a baby?
Max:  I agree, Pippin, this is an outrage...
Pippin:  That's brilliant!!!!!!
Max:  (sigh)
Pippin:  Well, back to work, big guy!
Max:  Oh, hello, Nyla.



Nyla:  HELLO!!!!
Pippin:  And the next day...Robyn finally aged up!!!!



Chantons:  Hello?
                 Is it me you're looking for?

Pippin:  And so, they went on their first official date.



Pippin:  It was a gold medal date!!!
Robyn:  Oh, Chantons, you're so charming!!!
Pippin:  And they became boyfriend and girlfriend.



Pippin:  And then, Chantons knelt and said something very important...
Chantons:  I want to make you laugh
                 when you're feeling sad
                 Carry you around
                 when your arthritis is bad
                 Oh, it would be so nice
                 to grow old with you.




Robyn:  Umm, no thanks.
Pippin:  Wait, what?!?!?  We've been waiting all this time and you reject his proposal?
Robyn:  Eh, just didn't feel like the right time.
Pippin:  (facepalm)
Izumi:  That's fine, little lady, but you made a promise...
Robyn:  Fine.



Pippin:  Wow, I didn't give her a makeover on anything and look how her jammies already match his!
Robyn:  Umm, maybe we could have some privacy?
Chantons:  I think we're alone now
                 There doesn't seem to be anyone around
                 I think we're alone now
                 The beating of our hearts is the only sound

Pippin:  I'll bet there were sounds besides their hearts beating.
Izumi:  Hush, Pippin.  Don't ruin the mood.
Pippin:  But Laurie said I'm romantic!
Izumi:  She was being sarcastic!!
Pippin:  And after that was over...



Chantons:  If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it
                 If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it
                 Don't be mad once you see that he want it
                 If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it

Pippin:  Oh, good heavens.  Worst proposal ever!
Robyn:  Okay!  I accept!
Pippin:  ...really?   That you accept?  Whatever.  Anyway, it was soon that we learned...



Robyn:  (sigh)
Pippin:  Heir 4 is on the way!!!
Robyn:  I'm so miserable.
Pippin:  Umm, your whole life right now is napping, watching the TV, and occasionally painting.
Robyn:  And eating.
Pippin:  Yes.  That too.  Not that she's actually hungry, she just has the glutton trait.  Hates children and a glutton.  And slob.  Why did I let Chantons pick?!?!
Izumi:  Because Rieko said you had to.
Pippin:  True, but I'm picking for the next heir.
Izumi:  Deal.
Pippin:  Speaking of deals, Miko was fairly certain that her bloodline needed to marry into our dynasty...not that I ever actually agreed to that so as to make it a "deal."



Pippin:  You might remember Madeleine.  Miko referred to her as her "beautiful baby."  That moment was decently insulting to Gretchen, as I recall.
Gretchen:  Oh, you remembered me!
Pippin:  Oh.  Are you that old lady?
Gretchen:  (sigh) Yes.



Pippin:  Madeleine makes weird faces when she's about to woohoo...



Pippin:  Okay, super cute while being kissed.  Anyway, that was Miko's beautiful baby...
Gretchen:  Still painful.
Pippin:  but someone else was having a beautiful baby...



Robyn:  Ugh!  Thank heavens I'm finally done being around this thing!!
Chantons:  Isn't she lovely
                 Isn't she wonderful
                 Isn't she precious
                 Less than one minute old
                 I never thought through love we'd be
                 Making one as lovely as she
                 But isn't she lovely made from love

Pippin:  Yep, they had a lovely baby boy.  Too bad I'd already wanted to use an inaccurately-gendered song.  So, Robyn, what are we naming your little fella?
Robyn:   Who cares?  I'm done being around the child!!  (heads to the fridge then the couch)
Pippin:  Hmm, I had strangely thought that she'd actually be attached since it was her baby.



Chantons:  His name is Wade.
Pippin:  Excellent!  Welcome baby...wait.  Did you just not sing?

Wow -- lots of progress! Congrats on getting Robyn aged up, pregnant, and engaged. Congrats to Abernathy. And welcome, little Wade, who will have to spend his time skilling and meeting requirements while various elders pollinate the neighborhood. You're so lucky, little guy!

Awwww, I kinda thought you'd name the little guy Stevie after that song!

Cracked up over Chantons' proposal song, but it worked so Robyn must have liked "it," lol.   ;-)

Congrats on your second Took immortal, Watcher! Looking good, Billie Rae!

P.S. I love expecting mothers who throw up from morning sickness then clean up after themselves. Just sayin'

Yeah, dynasty heirs are so lucky with all their skilling and requirements and (usually) Watcher-chosen spouses  ;=)
Robyn's a beauty, so I'm interested to see how her genes mix with the Took genes as Wade ages up!

Yeah, it's pretty funny when the immediate response to the morning sickness is grabbing the sponge.  Don't think that's quite how it goes in real life!
I went with Wade (as I'd done in a story back in my Sims 3 days) because of Wade Wilson  :=)  Graphic novel version, not movie version.
Two immortals down!  Woot woot!  Actually, Chantons is sitting one promotion and the hoop of actually buying the unique rewards away from being finished with everything (except hitting the elder status, of course).

The Took Immortal Dynasty, A Little Less Red
« Reply #134 on: October 06, 2017, 10:36:03 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household to discover that Izumi has gotten her warning from Grim.
Izumi:  Hmmm, what would Rieko do if she had gotten her warning from Grim...?



Pippin:  Of course.  A dance party!  Oh, where did Robyn and Chantons head off to?



Pippin:  And of course, Abernathy had other plans for what to do with his wife on her final days.



Abernathy:  I will love you forever.
Izumi:  And I expect you to mourn me for quite a while before you take up with a mistress.
Abernathy:  You're the greatest, trophy wife!
Izumi:  It's true.
Pippin:  And they took some time to look at the stars.



Abernathy:  So, sweetie, you wanna look at the stars?
Izumi:  Nope!  Let's just woohoo instead!
Abernathy:  So the greatest!!
Pippin:  And speaking of great wives, Robyn finally becomes Chantons' wife.



Robyn:  I promise to be reasonably adequate and to paint or be romantic to you when I'm not sleeping, eating, napping, resting, watching TV, catching some Z's, or sleeping.
Chantons:  Well a man shall leave his mother, and a woman leave her home
                 They shall travel on to where the two shall be as one
                 As it was in the beginning is now until the end
                 A woman draws her life from man and gives it back again
                 And there is love, there is love

Pippin:  Wow, those vows were beautiful.
Robyn:  Thanks, Pippin.
Pippin:  I meant...
Izumi:  He says you're welcome, dear.  Shouldn't you be checking in on little Wade, Pippin?
Pippin:  Oh.  Yes.  I guess we should acknowledge that he's aged up.



Pippin:  Quite a hairdo he's got there!  Wonder who he might marry...maybe the daughter of Laurie or perhaps of Rachel...



Pippin:  Yeesh!  Terrifying!!
Izumi:  Yeah, they did kind of share Laurie's pregnant belly during the wedding.
Pippin:  That's just...they can't...how did they...it's...
Izumi:  Gaivan said the same thing.



Max:  So, it's nice of you to agree to have a baby since it provides another spouse and/or friend option for the dynasty household, but would you mind terribly if I head out to actually spend time with my girlfriend after this?
Gal-Whose-Name-I've-Forgotten:  Wow, you are quite the sweet-talker!
Pippin:  Good heavens!!  Who is that?



Abernathy:  Remember my childhood friend, Tanvi Foy?
Pippin:  Yes?
Abernathy:  This is her daughter Aimee.
Pippin:  Wow!  Why did you not marry Tanvi?  I mean, look at those awesome genes!!
Izumi:  Ahem.
Pippin:  Oh.  That's right.  You didn't marry her because you had already found the perfect woman.  My mistake.
Izumi:  Nice save.



Pippin:  Umm, shouldn't you two actually be watching your child?
Robyn:  Nope!  Already ate, had a nap, nothing's on TV, it's woohoo time!!
Pippin:  Well, at least he won't be alone out there.



Pippin:  Oh, he's watching the pollinator.  That's healthy for a young, impressionable mind.
Max:  Hey, little buddy!  Uncle Max is just going to go inside and spend some time with his friend Macie, then we can have some play time.
Macie:  Glad that I'm getting "play time" first (meaningful wink).
Max:  (sigh)
Pippin:  And speaking of little Wade...



Pippin:  his daddy became an adult.  Wait, that sounded questionable.  His daddy stopped being a young adult.
Chantons:  But time makes you bolder
                 Even children get older
                 And I'm getting older too.

Pippin:  And daddy heads in to spend time with his little boy.



Max:  Okay, Wade, now we can play.
Pippin:  Umm, you realize you're still dressed for "work," right? 
Max:  What?  Oh heavens!!  That's embarrassing.
Pippin:  Oh, it's probably not going to scar him for his entire life.
Izumi:  Speaking of the entire life...



Izumi:  think I've hit the end of mine.
Pippin:  Izumi, NO!!!



Abernathy:  Trophy wife?  Sweetie?  Don't leave me!!
Pippin:  You're seriously leaving me with Robyn?
Grim:  Really, Pippin?  That's your focus?  Nice sensitivity.
Pippin:  Hey, skull-head, you've hit on plenty of pollinated ladies when their respective pollinator dropped!
Grim:  Touche!



Grim:  Izumi Took.  Former vampire and dynasty wife.  Survived by her immortal husband, their son, and their grandchild.  She was also the bride chosen by the brain trust, not to brag or anything, but she was pretty outstanding.
Abernathy:  (weeping) Yeah she was! (weeping some more)
Pippin:  Dear Izumi, you will be missed.

Oh Izumi, I can't believe you're gone!
Thank you, Pippin, for the lovely shots of Izumi in her younger days.
It must be tough for the Took household to be losing one amazing woman after another.

Which begs the question: Do you influence nooboo gender or is it mere coincidence that the first four generations of the Tooks have been male?

I totally cracked up, Pippin, that you start considering spousal prospects from the instant that Wade ages up to a toddler!
Of course, you do! It's such a dynasty/legacy thing to do!

Yes, I agree that Aimee Foy is a fox! But why is she running around the Took house in a towel!?

Another delightful update, except for the death of Izumi.  Rest in peace, you lovely creature!

Gorgeous Aimee had hit the sauna, hence it was towel time.  Too bad she fell between Chantons and Wade.  Maybe she'll still be an adult when Wade ages up?
I haven't influenced gender at all in this dynasty.  I have no idea why the male gene is so prominent in the Took line.  Maybe I need to influence gender to get at least a couple of females.
I'll miss Izumi.  Of course, now that Robyn's the only spouse in the house, the boys will need to step up their game.  She's not going to run things for them.

Pippin:  Back at a mourning Took household, Max is doing quite well at his job.



Pippin:  We're making sure the Munch household continues to be occupied.  And since Kaila Feng is quite lovely...



Pippin:  we keep those genes as an option too.  Speaking of genes, this little tyke comes from some awesome ones.



Pippin:  You gonna chat with your daddy, little guy?
Wade:  Mm-nn
Pippin:  Why not?
Wade:  Wan' Unka Max!
Pippin: But sadly, Unka Max was not much longer for this world.



Max:  Someone tell Laurie how much I love her and wish I'd gotten more time with her.
Grim:  I volunteer to visit your newly single girlfriend.



Pippin:  Nice.
Myla the Maid:  Hey, I heard there's a super handsome elder here.



Pippin:  Sorry, Max has just recently passed away.
Myla:  Who's Max?



Myla:  Why, Mr. Took, you are even more handsome than they say.
Gaivan:  I'm more...they say...it's just that...I had a...we could...
Myla:  Good heavens, you have so many thoughts going on there.  I hope at least one of them is a thought for me?
Gaivan:  They're...lots of the...you were...yes!
Myla:  Such a sweet talker!
Pippin:  Yeah, he's sweet and a talker.



Gaivan:  It's that...not as you...because that they...but thorns so...for you.
Myla:  Oooo, I'm getting weak in the knees, Mr. Took!
Gaivan:  I think...you and...we are...Gaivan...you can...
Myla:  Okay...Gaivan.



Myla:  (swoons into kiss)
Pippin:  Rieko's ghost never shows up anymore, but I'm pretty sure she'd be happy that you're moving forward or on or whatever you say for this.
Myla:  Oh my!
Pippin:  And she stayed the night which meant she was there when Chantons got home...



Pippin:  with another promotion bringing him to level 9!  I'm not quite sure why he poses like a dramatic opera singer for it.  Anyway, Gaivan and Myla didn't actually sleep while she was staying over.







Pippin:  And look, she's fixing our broken toilet!



Myla:  BLARGH!!!
Pippin:  Oh, never mind.  She seems to have an upset stomach for some reason.  Eventually, she had to leave.



Pippin:  I don't think Gaivan ever gave her a chance to use the bathroom.
Gaivan:  She was...and we...because I...whew!
Pippin:  Yeah, I'll bet.  Time for more Wade spam!



Abernathy:  Alright, the brave little warrior rides his battle T-rex into the fray!
Wade:  Wan Unka Max!
Pippin:  Oh, good call, Wade.  Guess we need a new Unka Max.  Abernathy?
Abernathy:  Yeah, I've got a friend from work who might be interested.



Pippin:  Hey, it's Benny Tanaka!  He's one of Jeremy's kids.  That seems appropriate.
Abernathy:  Yeah, but he could use a bit of sprucing up.



Benny:  What the...?
Abernathy:  Wa-POW!!  Transformation!



Abernathy:  Excellent!  Now let's get you out there spreading those golden eye genes!
Benny:  Let's what?
Pippin:  Yeah, you kind of forgot to offer him the pollinator position and move him in first.
Abernathy:  Oh.  Was that important?
Pippin:  (sigh)  Anyway, those formalities get tended to and Benny takes over in his father's footsteps.  Let's invite Rachel over.  Blue skin and gold eyes sounds perfect!



Benny:  Hey, how's my favorite niece?
Pippin:  Niece?!?!?  Never mind!!  Let's hit ladies night!



Pippin:  Sade Spencer-Kim.  She's gorgeous!!  A golden-eyed version of her would be amazing!!  Go get her, tiger!
Sade:  So, does your Watcher not know I can hear him?
Benny:  Well, I'm a bit new to the household, but I get the sense he's not very smooth.
Pippin:  Yeah I...HEY!



Pippin:  Well, somebody's smooth!
Sade:  Does he thrive on ruining moments?
Benny:  I'm thinking maybe so.



Pippin:  Alright, looks like things are going super well!  In fact, Robyn's even actually spending time with her son!



Robyn:  Oh, I'm not here on purpose.  You left the plate of cake in here.
Wade:  No wan mama!  Wan Unka Binny!
Pippin:  (facepalm)

This was such a hilarious update, Pippin! I cried from laughing so hard.

Rest in peace, Max Villareal. You were a prolific though unwilling pollinator. We look forward to meeting the fruits of your loins (is that the right expression?).

Oh my! Myla and Gaivan really steamed things up, didn't they? And how I love the way you write Gaivan's dialogue.

A new pollinator already!
How did Abernathy "spruce up" Benny Tanaka? Did he just get Benny out of his sad funk, or is that how Benny acquired those exotic-looking golden tiger eyes?
The dialogue among Sade, Benny, and Pippin were too funny!

Wade, you are an adorable little contrarian! Has your mama never sung you that song "Love the one you're with?"

Really, really loved this update, Pippin!

Tell Laura not to cry,
My love for her will never die.

Good-bye, Max and good-bye, Izumi (I missed the previous chapter).
Glad that Gaivan's found someone to keep him happy in his elder years. Just make sure he doesn't wear himself out.

Aww, so glad you enjoyed it!  I really struggled with whether or not to let Gaivan pursue things with Myla because of my adoration for Rieko and then was worried about how the readers would take it.  She was an amazing Sim.  Myla's sweet, but she's definitely no Rieko.
Benny being "spruced up" was the "transform" interaction with the SimRay.  It made his sin tone more bronze and gave him those golden eyes.  Back when I used to join Abernathy at work, he used it on a co-worker and that fellow ended up with green hair.  I'm not sure If it did anything with Benny's hair color or not since elder status could have kept it grey while it might register genetically as something else.
Of course Royn has never sung "Love the One You're With" to Wade.  That would mean interacting with a child  ;=)  It was a very appropriate song choice, however.
I'm also quite excited to see how Max's kiddos turn out (especially his daughter with Laurie!!).

And now I have that song running in my head:
Tell Laura I love her.
Tell Laura I need her.
Tell Laura not to cry,
My love for her will never die.

Good-bye, Max and good-bye, Izumi (I missed the previous chapter).
Glad that Gaivan's found someone to keep him happy in his elder years. Just make sure he doesn't wear himself out.
Yeah, the passing of beloved Sims is always hard.  It's part of the game, of course, but still hard to accept.  I still grieve Rieko.
I'm very careful with Gaivan's moodlets.  However, he's not become dangerously tired yet.  Must be all that yoga he does.

As a fun footnote, I've never included this in the narrative, but every song Chantons writes has Robyn's name in the title.  Some of my favorites have been, "Robyn Me Blind," "Robyn and Stealin'" and"Robyn the Cradle"

Pippin:  As we rejoin the Took household, Abernathy was invited out to dinner...



Pippin:  by his dead wife.
Abernathy:  So, my favorite test subject, shall we analyze how all of the romantic socials work during the afterlife?
Izumi:  Well, I certainly didn't come here for the food!
Pippin:  But they have more than just inadequate food here,



Pippin:  they also have a lovely red-haired chef!  Benny, we need you over here!!
Benny:  Coming!
Pippin:  Meantime, Vlad brings out the food for our happy couple...



Pippin:  and promptly drops it on the floor.  At least things are going well for Benny.
Benny:  Umm, all I can do is compliment her food or insult it.
Pippin:  Curses!  Okay, compliment it and then see how things go with the blonde waitress with the...generous frontside...



Benny:  You mean the one that just aged up to elder?
Pippin:  Dang it!!



Abernathy:  Don't worry, Pippin, the date's not a complete loss despite your failure to use it as a pollinating session.
Pippin:  Oh, you sappy kids.
Izumi:  Sappy does rhyme with happy, after all.
Pippin:  Of course, Abernathy has other important dinner dates as well.



Gaivan:  So it's...that you and...because when they...and dinner for...
Abernathy:  Umm, it was nice, if that's what you're asking?
Gaivan:  Yes and...that when...if she mentioned...because we don't?
Abernathy:  Umm, you mean did she mention mom?  Yeah.  Mom's happy.  She's just watching over us and enjoying heavenly dance parties.  She said to tell you congratulations on the baby, by the way.
Gaivan:  (smiles and blushes)
Abernathy:  Hey, I actually understood that response!
Pippin:  The congratualtions, of course, refer to Myla's little baby bump.



Pippin:  Abernathy's going to be a big brother!
Myla:  Yep, but here I am still coming in as the maid.  Guess that handsome charmer Gaivan got what he needed and now he's just moving on (sigh).
Gaivan:  Myla, you're so...that glowing and...we could...such a vision...c'mere!



Myla:  Oh my!
Pippin:  Yeah, he's not the love 'em and leave 'em type, silly girl.  Although, if you could tidy up a bit when you're done, that would be nice.  Little Wade leaves his cake plates laying all over the place.  Speaking of Wade, Chantons took him out socializing so he'll have a head start on the social butterfly aspiration.  First, Casa Caliente!



Pippin:  Cierra Caliente is not a redhead, but still has excellent genes.  Let's get some Pancakes!



Pippin:  And here we have Erik and Kelsi Pancakes.  Kelsi is in the overalls.  Landgraab time!



Pippin:  The lovely blonde is Lilliana Landgraab.  Still only a teen.  Maybe Wade will want an older wife?  The Landgraabs only have toddler-aged Kaleb and child-aged Caleb.  I'll bet things get confusing at their household.  But Lilliana, right?  Anyway, Behr with us a moment longer.



Pippin:  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  The "share the love" social is adorable!!  How have I never seen this before?!?!?  Anyway, Wade found his female twin in young Amelia Behr.  They are sooooooooooooooo cute together!!  Is it too soon to start shipping them?  I think not.  Of course, sometimes the red hair as a toddler/child leads to uncommon color (like blue) in teen and adult stages (fingers crossed).  Of course, I won't want to wait super long like I had to for Robyn to age up, but...



Pippin:  If they have a daughter who has Marci's looks and Benny's gold eyes, that's going to be hard to shoot down.
Gaivan:  It's the...because he's...cake with...
Pippin:  Oh.  Yes.  Cake.  Probably something about his birthday.



Chantons:  Happy birthday, dear Wade,
                 Happy birthday to you.

Robyn:  Who's Wade?
Pippin:  Your son?  Little redheaded guy who's been roaming around the house?  Maybe you've noticed him?
Robyn:  You mean the one who keeps taking my cake?  Yeah.  I know him.



Pippin:  Woot woot!!  Childhood achieved!!
Wade:  Umm, what's wrong with Dad's ankle?
Pippin:  Really?  You've heard his speech pattern and that's what worries you?
Wade:  Fair enough.  Let's go socialize!!  Bring on the ladies!
Pippin:  Yes we'll...what?



Wade:  Aww, Cierra, you're just the best!  In fact, you're my best friend, right?
Cierra:  Of course I am!
Pippin:  Smooth!  We'll just check that off the list.
Kassidy Fyres:  You think I'm great too, right, Wade?



Wade:  Of course, you are, dear.  (pats her reassuringly on the back)
Cierra:  Just not as great as me.
Wade:  Ladies, ladies, you're both pretty!  Now, let's secure one more child friend.  Hmmm, Amelia hasn't aged up yet.  Ah well.  Guess we'll order Pancakes.



Wade:  So, Erik, this is my great-grandpa and his extremely under-aged babymama!
Myla:  Excuse me?
Gaivan:  Well, he...that we are...immortal so...
Myla:  No, I understand that, it's just that he called me your babymama.
Pippin:  Yeah, I kind of won't let him make her his girlfriend out of respect for Rieko.
Wade:  I figure babymama makes you sound closer to family than calling you the maid.  It was intended to be nice?
Myla:  (sigh)  I'll take it.
Pippin:  And meantime, Robyn has finally painted her first masterpiece.
Robyn:  Well, I am pretty amazing.



Pippin:  Actually, Izumi had her first masterpiece far earlier in the painting skill and was knocking out about 1 masterpiece for every 3 paintings she'd do.
Robyn:  Listening to you has made me tired and hungry.  I'm going to lounge on the couch and have some cake.
Pippin:  (sigh)  We could have had Laurie.  Ah well, things will work better since I'm not letting Wade choose his own romantic course.  Wait, where'd Wade go?



Wade:  So, Uncle Benny, what tips can you give me for when I take over as pollinator?
Benny:  Umm, you know you're the heir right?  Not a pollinator?
Wade:  Eh, heir, pollinator, potato, potahto.  So, what are your tips?
Benny:  Ummm...not a pollinator...

lol, Wade, good luck with that future Serial Romantic aspiration you're gearing up towards. He is rather cute and funny, thank goodness he's taking after the Took side. Also, good luck, Benny. You'd better do a real good job teaching that kid. I wonder if those gold eyes are vampire eyes? I think I remember seeing them there. Hopefully they can be passed on and that Rachel soon gets a pollinator of her own. It would be such a shame to let that color fade. Good luck to the Tooks down the road!

Abernathy and Izumi's date was adorable. Tough luck about the redheaded cook, Benny!

I'm glad that Gaivan has found a companion to share some of his eternal life and that everyone's okay with that, including Rieko.
And yes, Rieko is just irreplaceable.

Wade the toddler checking out his spousal prospects, too funny! I hope he and Amelia Behr aren't too far apart in age!

Also, I can't wait to see how many of Benny's offspring get his "sintone" (your spelling, lol. I love it!) and his golden eyes.
Potato, potahto, indeed, Wade! What explains your unceasing fascination for pollinators? Makes me wonder what your teen aspiration will be...

Another wonderful update!

P.S. Does the Took nose usually appear after the teen birthday?

You nailed it!  Definitely wanted to steer the narrative to help explain how he ended up as a serial romantic and didn't want to go with the cliché spoiled rich kid trope.
I agree that Rachel is gorgeous and I absolutely need to keep those genetics as a spouse option!!

I'm hoping the nose shows up for the teen years.  I wasn't sure if Abernathy or Chantons had it until then, so it's a waiting game at this point.
Sintone.  My bad  :=)

Pippin:  It is a sad, sad day at the Took household as we regret to announce...



Pippin:  Tanvi Foy will no longer be giving birth to beautiful daughters.
Tanvi:  Well, my adulthood probably lasted an entire extra life stage in length due to all the pregnancies, and I got such lovely children, so I guess I can't complain.
Pippin:  We can.  Guess it's time to start pollinating the lovely Aimee.
Tanvi:  Dude!  That's my daughter!
Pippin:  You're right, that was insensitive.  We'll just wait until you're not around to hear or see anything.
Tanvi:  Not cool, dude.  Not cool.
Pippin:  Meantime...



Benny:  You have absolutely caught my eye, you vixen.  That's why I just had to have some time alone with you.
The Aforementioned Vixen:  You know, I feel oddly flirty all of the sudden.
Pippin:  Flirty aura room, you have served us well.  You're the real MVP...next to Rieko.  Speaking of Rieko...



Pippin:  This is not her.
Myla:  OWWW!!!  I think the baby's coming!
Pippin:  Hmm, there's no option for Gaivan to take you to the hospital and I can't get any interaction with the crib for you to have the baby either.  Maybe if we just have you wait around the house long enough, you'll give birth!
Myla:  I don't OWW think that's OOOOWWWWW how it works!
Gaivan:  I don't...but could...if you want...
Myla:  C'mere, tiger!



Pippin:  And after a few hours passed, I was pretty certain she wasn't going to give birth here.  Dang it.  She left and almost immediately gave birth to a daughter named Lacy!
Gaivan:  So...the girl...mine and...we were...not until now that...and parents again!



Wade:  Well hello, Kaelyn Feng!  I'm Wade Took.  That's right, Took like the dynasty family.  (winks) You're welcome.
Pippin:  You know, she's probably going to be gorgeous when she grows up.
Wade:  Oh, I know.
Pippin:  And Wade gets in social time with several others.



Wade:  Alright!  Let's make all sorts of friendship-type connections!
Pippin:  Parker Haas and her hat are adorable!
Wade:  Oh, I know.
Pippin:  And little Amelia still hasn't aged up.
Wade:  (sigh) I know.



Robyn:  Umm, honey?  Why is there some random girl stuck in the bathroom?
Chantons:  Here I am
                 Stuck in the middle with you

Robyn:  Eh, whatever.  I already ate and there's nothing on TV.  Wanna woohoo before I take my nap?
Chantons:  Oh, dream weaver
                 I believe you can get me through the night

Robyn:  Yeah I can.



Myla:  Umm...help?



Pippin:  Already finished the social butterfly aspiration?
Wade:  Of course!  Now I'm going to try to max the other three before I age up.



Pippin:  That's a pretty ambitious goal.
Wade:  Hey, only the ambitious deserve to use this much glitter.
Pippin:  Truer words have never been spoken.
Wade:  Well, this is getting old, think I'll go make more friends.
Pippin:  ...what?



Wade:  Hey there, Jayden Gupta!  You must be in great shape.
Jayden:  Umm, I guess...?
Wade:  Well, you have been running through my dreams all night.
Jayden:  Uh, we just met sooo....
Wade:  Shhh, no words.  Don't spoil this perfect moment.  Oh, never mind.  Excuse me.  (runs off)
Jayden:  ...what?
Pippin:  Meantime, on the porch in the background...



Benny:  You know, I'm quite handy myself.  Or was that handsy?
Masami:  Ooo, let's find out!



Wade:  Well, hello there, beautiful lady.  I'm Wade Took.  Yep, Took, as in the dynasty family.  I'm sure you've heard of us.  We're kind of a big deal.
Miriam Foy:  Wow.  You need help picking up that name you just dropped?  You look weak and flabby, so I'd hate to see you pull a muscle.
Wade:  Aha, I see you're playing hard to get.
Miriam:  And you play hard to want.



Wade:  You intrigue me. 
Miriam:  Hey, I'm a realist.  I'm the younger and less attractive sister of the gorgeous Aimee, so I'm pollinator fodder at best.  No sense overblowing my own importance or sucking up to the royals.
Wade:  You're my new favorite.  Let's cloudgaze.
Miriam:  Sure.  Whatever, weirdo.



Wade:  What do you think that one looks like?
Miriam:  Well, it's really over-sized, so I'm going to say it's a metaphor for your over-inflated ego.
Wade:  You are a hoot and a holler!
Miriam:  Whatever.
Pippin:  I'm...I'm really not sure if things are going well there or not...anyway, Abernathy decided to get involved in genetic studies again.



Masami:  No, please!  Benny likes me just as I am.
Abernathy:  Well, that may be true, however unlikely, but I'm pretty sure I can do better.  (zap)
Masami:  Whoa, I'm gonna be sick!  (runs to bathroom)



Pippin:  Abernathy, you are an artist sir!
Abernathy:  It's true.
Benny:  And it looks like you've helped ensure that I just did my best work.



Benny:  Guess it's time to go gentle into that goodnight.
Grim:  Rage rage against the dying of the light?



Masami:  Ooo, you like poetry?
Grim:  I dabble.  So, now that you're single, you want to go for some dinner?
Masami:  I could eat.
Benny:  Umm, haven't even actually been reaped yet?
Grim:  Oh, my mistake.
Pippin:  And Benny's not the only one who's done some great work.



Chantons:  Naega jeil jal naga
Pippin:  That's Korean for "I'm the best."  He is nothing if not humble.  Anyway, Chantons is one promotion away from maxing his career and just needs to determine who will be his unique best friend (probably Nyla Gupta).  As we move to the next update, we'll see Wade age up to teen and take over as the focus of the legacy.

Haha, at the end of this update, you mention that "we'll see Wade age up to teen and take over as the focus of this legacy," which made me giggle.
You could have fooled me, Pippin! I thought Wade and his socializing had already become the focus of this legacy.
I mean, Wade really, really gets around and he seems to be keeping tabs on all the prime pollination prospects!

I loved Wade and Miriam Foy together--you keep that little guy in line, Miriam!
Is Miriam truly Wade's new favorite or does he say that to all the girls?
Haha, Wade as a Serial Romantic---I'm really looking forward to his barrage of stale pick-up lines! :D

I'm so sorry to see Benny go! His golden eyes and feline looks were very appealing!

Woooo, Chantons is so close to finishing all of his dynasty requirements apart from his elder birthday!


P.S. Thanks for sharing when The Nose has appeared with Wade's predecessors.

Something tells me that Wade is on track to get the Serial Romantic aspiration. I loved the back-and-forth with Miriam.

Well, I'm in love with Miriam. I very much look forward to her friendship with Wade and her probable pollination. I'm sure she'll have many dry, witty things to say about it. :)

Ah, yes, and Spiffendale's Patented Magic Fishcake! From the people who brought you Poof! It's Grilled Cheese and Eduardo-In-a-Can! Spiffendale's Magic Fishcake! (TM) "We'll sue ya!" (We will not. We will just continue to giggle delightedly every time you reference our story.)

Nice work on the transformations! I can't wait to see the golden-eyed offspring! And I'm even more excited to see how Amelia Behr ages up!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that the nose lives on.

And thanks for getting "I Am the Best" stuck in my head! Of all the earworms Chantons has inflicted on me, that's my favorite so far. :)

Yes! Now we can get a new pollinator and pollinate Rachael!
Ahem. I mean, RIP Benny. And wow, that's a lot of spouse choices. And stuff.
What's Laurie's last name again? Just wondering which one is her child...
