What a fascinating founder--he can only talk coherently about food! But never fear, Rieko has enough words for both of them. I'm loving Rieko!

Congrats on your dynasty's many firsts! First gold-medal party, first wedding, and first heir! And a second pollinator already!

Looking forward to learning more about Gaivan and Rieko--they're off and running to a lovely and highly entertaining start!

Welcome, Abernathy! And farewell, Geeta. Gaivan is off to a good start!
I'm so happy that things are going to well for Gaivan!  The success is directly connected to having made a few failed attempts at Sims 4 dynasties, reading through IDC's other have done (most noteably the Hollingsworth, Spiffendales, and Nishijimas), and doing lots of planning/prepping/ongoing support and maintenance with Oshizu.
I was shocked that Geeta keeled over with no warnings at all!  I had already scripted out interactions between her and her "son," but she never lived to meet young Abernathy  :=(

I thought having him speak coherently about food would be a nice twist.  In rereading the first update, I noticed that his comment about having time to practice the cooking skill by grilling fruit was the only complete sentence he made, so that just grew from there.
Gaivan has actually already done a gold medal date and dinner party (which also filled the silver medal dinner party requirement for the master chef aspiration), but I didn't really make a big narrative deal about that.
Amusingly, the further I get into the narrative, the more Gaivan seems to sink into the background and Rieko becomes more of a narrator.  Jaivan and Izumi went in a very similar direction in my RDC.  Funny how that worked out.

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Johnny the Joker

Pippin:  With the addition of baby Abernathy, the upstairs finally got a facelift.



Rieko:  Well, since it was never finished in the first place, I think it should be that it got a face, not a facelift.
Pippin:  ...fair enough.  Anyway, helpers/pollinators will provide baby care up here in the early going and we'll be using this area for immortals in later generations which will give us lovely built-in child care.
Rieko:  Okay, just remember not to have my sweetie pie teach them to talk.
Pippin:  Oooo, good point.  Oh, and look at what a good caretaker Uncle Raj is.



Raj:  You know, maybe I could actually go see my own children sometime?
Pippin:  Less whining!  More childcare!  And speaking of children...



Johnny:  I'm going to be a daddy for the first time!!
Pippin:  The first of many times.
Candy:  What was that, Pippin?
Pippin:  I mean...I hope you and Johnny have many, many children.  Because you're so beautiful.  So your children will be beautiful.  Because you are.  Please don't hit me.
Candy:  Okay, I won't since you noticed I'm beautiful.
Pippin:  And beautiful Candy's dear Johnny is definitely a popular fellow.



Jade:  Poor Candy, she's fallen for a pollinator.
Pippin:  But you...
Jeremy:  Not everyone can have the special connection we share, Jade.
Jade:  Oh, Jeremy, you're the best!
Pippin:  Hmm, I guess he is.  Johnny, take notes.



Johnny:  So, Liberty, are you from Tennessee?  'Cause you're the only ten I see.
Liberty:  Teehee, oh Johnny!
Pippin:  Hmm, note-taking seems to be working.
Jeremy:  The Force is strong with this one.
Pippin:  And we fast forward through Abernathy's baby years...



Pippin:  Awww, he's a redhead!  Wait.  You're blonde, and Gaivan is lavender-haired...
Rieko:  His hair will turn lavender when he's older, Pippin.  Toddlers can't have base game unnatural colors.
Pippin:   ...how do you know that?
Rieko:  Pay more attention to the forum, Pippin.
Pippin:  I...but you...how did...
Rieko:  Hmm, seems like Gaivan's speech pattern is contagious.  Ah well, time to play with my little Abernathy!



Pippin:  Well, now that Abernathy has something slightly resembling independence and Gaivan has a few days off, let's knock out another party requirement!
Johnny:  Hey, Pippin, you know what comes before part B?  PartAY!
Pippin:  Ugh.



Gaivan:  I...and then the...'cause the claws...but she...and yes...baby!
Liberty:  ...no idea what you're talking about.
Raj:  We usually just smile and nod if Rieko's not around to translate.
Liberty:  Sounds legit.



Rieko:  Izumi!  You're a lovely and randomly generated redhead vampire.  You're a beautiful woman who won't age.  I gave birth to a son.  I should learn about vampiric lore and find that cure.
Lilith:  Really? 
Rieko:  Oh, you'll get your turn, Lilith, but Izumi is definitely facing culling threat.
Lilith:  Yeah, that's fair.
Pippin:  Rieko, please live a very long life.
Rieko:  Woot!  Dance time!!





Pippin:  It took two tries, but we got our gold medal house party.  Adding that to the successful wedding party, date, and dinner party, we only need one more.  I'm thinking a birthday party.  However, we've got some time to fill before a birthday comes around.
Johnny:  You could fill that time by actually letting me perform like you promised when I moved in?  I have this great new bit I've been wanting to try out...
Pippin:  Alright, deal.  Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Solar Flare Lounge in beautiful Oasis Springs!  We have a great evening of comedy lined up for you, so without further ado, Johnny Zest!!



Johnny:  I know what you're thinking:  more like Jenny Zest, amirite?
Crowd:  (mild laughter)
Johnny:  I decided that women's clothing looked really comfy, so I tried some on, but I've gotta say, dressing like this is a real drag.  (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (Laughter)
Johnny:  Seriously, it was so tough putting this on that I really got mad.  Guess you could say I was a real cross dresser.  (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (More laughter)



Johnny:  I gotta tell you, running in a skirt is a huge challenge.  In fact, Rieko actually challenged me to see which of us could run here fastest without our skirts flying up.  I won, though, because I'm an excellent drag racer.  (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (More laughter and attention for Rieko)
Johnny:  I'm glad no one's heckling tonight.  That would make me so mad I'd flip my wig.  Literally!  (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (A little less laughing)



Johnny:  One final note, I have to give an apology to Candy Behr.  We argued quite a bit as she was helping me get ready by being my cosmetologist, but we'll make up.  (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (Lots of laughter and people looking around in fear that Candy will hurt them)
Johnny:  You've been a great crowd, thank you, good night!
Crowd:  (Cheering)
Pippin:  Excellent work, Johnny!  You really are a funny guy.
Johnny:  Thanks, but do you think it was too many bad puns?
Pippin:  Oh, I don't think there's any such thing as too many bad puns.  Anyway, things are progressing nicely as Gaivan has gotten a promotion again.



Gaivan:  So...must tired...hooray...'cause sleep...promotion...
Pippin:  And as he hits his level 6 promotion, he enters the mixology branch of his career and everyone is highly impressed that his Watcher remembered to make sure he had the master mixologist aspiration active when it happened to complete that requirement.
Rieko:  So, did you hurt your arm patting yourself on the back so much?
Pippin:  Hey, I...yes.  A little.  Hey, why are you in a towel?



Rieko:  Sauna time followed by vampire lore.  Isn't that right, Abernathy?
Abernathy:  (begins examining the stiches of the bear with great interest)
Pippin:  Hmm, someone should probably teach little Abernathy to talk.  Raj?
Raj:  On it!  Come on, my little sous chef!



Raj:  ...and sometimes, you can garnish things with spearmint.  Can you say spearmint?
Abernathy:  E-spreara-ment
Pippin:  ...did he just say experiment?
Raj:  Haha, kids say the darnedest things!
Pippin:  Hmmm, that should be a TV show.  Anyway, when Johnny's not busy being a joke star, he's busy proving himself to be a worthy successor to Jeremy.



Johnny:  Ayaka, my mesmerizing mixologist, you intoxicate me.
Ayaka:  Oh, Johnny!



Johnny:  Dear Avani, I vanna kiss you.
Avani:  (is kissed)
Pippin:  Okay, he's super smooth.  Looks like we're really turning the corner with our pollinators.  I mean that literally.



Pippin:  See?  Corner.  totally turned it.
Johnny:  Well done, Pippin.  Everyone knows jokes are always funnier when you explain them.
Pippin:  I know, right?  But Johnny's mentor is definitely still alive and well.



Pippin:  Yes, doing so, so very well.



Pippin:  But he made sure to pass along more wisdom to his young protégé.



Jeremy:  You're doing well, my young padawan.
Johnny:  Thank you, master Jeremy.
Jeremy:  But one day, I'll become one with the Force and you must forge on without me since we aren't having any ghosts on the property to help protect the ambrosia.  You'll need to find a wingman.
Johnny:  Well, Raj is already...
Jeremy:  No.  I mean, don't get me wrong, he's a nice guy and you definitely look more attractive when you're compared to him, but he's so not a good pollinator.
Johnny:  Oh.  Okay then.  I'll have to think about this some more.
Jeremy:  And one more thing to bear in mind, Johnny...
Johnny:  Yes, master Jeremy?
Jeremy:  Try to find someone who lives alone so they'll bring in their full wealth to make the dynasty household even more ridiculously wealthy.
Pippin:  Jeremy, you are amazing!  Speaking of Jeremy being amazing, he and his protégé have successfully done the grafting to create death flowers and have gotten 6 death flowers planted in the prematurely named Jeremy Epstein Memorial Garden.



Pippin:  Indeed, not just any old Sim could accomplish the great things Jeremy and Johnny have done.



80's Hairband Guy:  (sigh)  When he says "any old Sim," he means me.
Pippin:  ...it's true.  Anyway, we leave the Took household with Gaivan significantly advanced through his requirements and Abernathy only 4 days from childhood.

I love Johnny's jokes. It looks to me like Abernathy is going to inherit Gaivan's nose.

And how is little Gretchen doing?

Gaivan is doing so well with his family, career, and parties! Great job on the death flower, Jeremy and Johnny!

And you're right, there can never be too many bad puns! Lol, when we first arrived at the Solar Lounge,  I thought you'd given Summer Holiday a makeover, but it was Johnny.

Wow, Jeremy's really hanging on to life! He's survived one update longer than Geeta so far!

Poor Raj never really gets to visit his kids.  Don't worry, I'll get some shots of them in an update eventually.
I'm definitely curious how the genetics will play out for little Abernathy!

Haha, I guess Johnny really does look like Summer.  How funny!
I definitely feel like things are going very well for Gaivan.  Hopefully, that success can continue and things can be wonderfully positive (he says knowing that the inevitable bumps in the road are due to show up any day now).

Pippin:  Ever since the sauna room showed up, clothes show up less often.



Jeremy:  Well, this outfit is pretty conducive to my other job.
Pippin:  ...fair, but disturbing, point.  Of course, part of that other job is training young Johnny.
Jeremy:  Yep, double date time.



Eva:  Oh, so this is your handsome friend.
Jeremy:  Yep.  Eva, meet Johnny.
Johnny:  May I say, you're the most beautiful woman I've Eva seen.
Eva:  Oh, that was clever.



Eva:  And you're pretty cute too.
Johnny:  Pretty and cute?  You flatter me.
Eva:  Oooo, he's witty.  I like that.
Jade:  Thought you might.
Pippin:  And since we're at the Partihaus abode anyway,



Pippin:  Jeremy got to spend time with little baby...whichever one this is...
Jeremy:  Nick.
Pippin:  How do you even remember them all?
Jeremy:  They're my kids.  Sure I don't get much, if any, time with them, but they're still important to me.
Pippin:  You're pretty awesome, Jeremy.
Jeremy:  Pretty and awesome?  You flatter me.
Pippin:  Okay, smart alek.  But after some quality time for Eva and Johnny, they came back to the house, and Rieko invited over another guest.



Rieko:  So, Watcher willing, you might be my daughter-in-law.
Izumi:  Okay.  That's weird.  This might be the weirdest and most awkward moment in my life.
Rieko:  Time to meet your future husband!



Izumi:  Correction.  This is the weirdest and most awkward moment of my life.  yep.  For sure.
Rieko:  Remember, Izumi, you wanted into this family.  This is not a time for indecision.
Abernathy:  Incision.
Rieko:  Close enough.
Pippin:  And in addition to traumatizing poor vampire girls, the family has been hitting the gym.



Pippin:  Early on in his skilling, Gaivan made lots of cake.  Most of the family ate lots of it.  Plus, Rieko needs to be really healthy so she'll live longer.
Rieko:  Aww, thanks, Pippin!
Pippin:  You're welcome!



Pippin:  Hahahaha, look how the 6 pack shows up on the baby bump.  Oh, and that's one of Jeremy's.
Johnny:  Oh, pay no mind to the disembodied voice, Eliza, it's just our Watcher.  Speaking of watching, I simply can't take my eyes off of you.
Eliza:  Why, Johnny, you rascal!  I'm a married woman!
Johnny:  And I absolutely respect that.  By the way, would you like to come try out our new sauna?



Pippin:  Looks like Johnny was in the mood for some Pancakes.
Johnny:  I thought bad puns were my thing?
Pippin:  We can share.  And speaking of sharing, Gaivan was quite happy to share the news of his big promotion.



Gaivan: I and...look 'cause...with outfit...level seven...and yeah!
Pippin:  Couldn't have said it any better myself...unless I'd used sentence structure and included facts and details.  Anyway, Summer randomly called and invited him out to celebrate because they have the faintest hint of a green bar.



Pippin:  Seriously?  You celebrate by doing your job?
Gaivan:  Well...it's that I'm...and skilling is...because fun...
Pippin:  Fair enough.
Johnny:  Oooo, a stage!



Johnny:  My cousin is hoping to become an Olympic high jumper.  I asked him how his training was going.  He said it has its ups and downs (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (Laugher)
Johnny:  My other cousin is a sprinter.  He's so invested in his training that even his nose runs (buh dum tch)
Crowd:  (More laughter)



Johnny:  Finally there's my uncle.  He plays golf.  I asked him how many years he's been playing golf and he said, "FORE!"
Crowd:  (Laughs a lot)
Johnny:  Thank you, you've been at least a fairly adequate crowd!



Johnny:  So, ladies, how did you enjoy the show?
Clara:  Well, I certainly found it visually appealing.
Ayaka:  Hey, back off, married cougar!  That's my baby daddy!
Pippin:  Well, this is getting awkward.



Actual Mixologist:  Ummm, why are you doing my job?
Gaivan:  Oh...you see there's...I didn't mean...but you...and so...there you go.
Actual Mixologist:  Oh.  Umm, thanks?
Gaivan:  Yes.
Pippin:  So, things are going gloriously for Gaivan, but things took a less glorious turn...



Jeremy:  Well, it's fitting that my time comes while I'm in my garden.
Candy:  (Snores)  Hunh, wha...?



Grim:  Sorry to wake you, miss.  I'm just here on business.
Candy:  Wha...?
Grim:  Let's see...Jeremy Epstein.



Rieko:  Jeremy!  No!!
Raj:  But...but...Jeremy...
Grim:  Yep.  Jeremy.  Let's see.  No wife.  Survived by his children Jusuf and Kiana Cowan; Dillan Caliente; Alyse, Gustavo, and Nick Rosa; Nathaniel and Delaney Holiday; Scarlett Spencer-Kim; Esther Langraab; and Betsy Haas.  Oh, there's a footnote that you have...at least 5 more pending?  Hmm, that seems like a lot of kids.  Oh, those Cowan kids are half alien.  Nice! 
Pippin:  Jeremy Epstein, you were a fine gardener, an excellent pollinator, and an overall wonderful presence in the household.  You will be missed.







R.I.P. Jeremy Epstein

These things didn't quite fit the last update as I wanted to show the due respect to Jeremy (who will be very missed).
First up, we have ambrosia!!  Death flowers are blooming, angelfish are being pulled in, and we have potions of youth.



Oh, and Raj.  Thank goodness for Raj.
The ambrosia and not-yet-used potions of youth are stashed in the wall beside the closet where they're inaccessible.



No tombstones or urns are left on the lot to decrease ghostly visitors and the spaces are only 1 square wide.  Hopefully, ghosts can't just reach through a wall to grab the items.
Rieko also gave a Swedish massage to Grim.



Yep.  He's there.  Trust me. 



Johnny got abducted.  Not sure if the pollinator was pollinated...?



He did, however, finally pollinate Dr. Eva who delivered Abernathy.
And this...



was Jeremy's 10th kiss as he was working on the serial romantic aspiration.

Good-bye Jeremy! 16 children -- wow, that's impressive. Poor Gaivan -- yes, sentence structure would be an improvement. But I love the way you capture his mumblings.

Goodbye Jeremy, that was an amazing pollinating record for an elder.

Regarding ghosts, in my apocalypse challenge, the urns are in a basement room with no stairs, so teleporting is the only way in and out, and the ghosts have never left it.  I'm guessing that ghosts can't teleport even if they maxed wellness when alive and that they can't float through ceilings.

Very nice legacy you've left behind, Jeremy! I noticed a lot of little girls' names among your souvenirs!
R.I.P., Jeremy! I'm glad the garden was named after you, because your valiant and untiring efforts certainly merit a memorial!

Congrats to Gaivan on yet another promotion!
I've yet to play Johnny Zest in any context, so I'm looking forward to watching his children grow alongside Jeremy's.

Excellent work, Watcher!

Thanks!  It's actually pretty challenging writing Gaivan's lines.  I probably edit/revise/rewrite his lines more than anyone else's.
Yeah, Jeremy was quite the wonder.  I miss him already.

Hmm, nifty idea.  A little ghost prison basement.  Although, if memory serves, ghosts did end up teleporting in the Spiffendale dynasty.

Jeremy was great at making baby girls, but Johnny is making up for it with all his sons  :=(
Gaivan has really been blowing through the requirements! 
Thanks for the encouragement and for always commenting  :=)  That always helps keep me motivated.

Pippin:  So, Raj actually did manage to get in some time with his own children.



Raj:  I notice you made Miko drag them over here instead of letting me visit them at her place.
Pippin:  Less whining, more parenting!!  And speaking of parents, a certain parent/chef was hard at work.



Gaivan:  And the...because cake...so older...but not ready...and having...
Pippin:  Umm, yes.  Abernathy is going to be getting older.



Rieko:  Awww, my little man's becoming...a little bigger man.
Pippin:  Eloquent.
Rieko:  Hush.



Pippin:  Wow, you're really rocking that hat.
Abernathy:  Maybe we can surgically remove it?
Pippin:  Ummm, or just do a makeover...?
Abernathy:  Well, that seems like the boring approach, but alright.



Pippin:  By the way, congrats on the gold medal party.
Abernathy:  Umm, that helps dad, not me, but thanks or whatever.
Rieko:  Woot!  Celebratory dance party!!!





Pippin:  Hmmm, guess that's a thing now.



Abernathy:  Yo, trophy wife!
Izumi:  This is so weird.
Abernathy:  You seem to have that sort of response a lot.  I'm curious about how your brain works.  Like literally how it works.  May I dissect your skull a bit?  I'll put things back when I'm done...
Izumi:  ...uhh....
Abernathy:  Or I guess we could just play chess.
Izumi:  I'd like chess, please.



Abernathy:  So, are you sure you want to want to make that strategically flawed and predictable move?
Izumi:  Oh.  I guess not?  Just out of curiosity, is this what I have to look forward to?
Abernathy:  That and being my test subject, trophy wife!
Izumi:  ...oh...



Rieko:  Okay, let's just read this book two more times and then we'll have the hours in to get my hours for the successful lineage aspiration and for your whiz kid aspiration.
Abernathy:   I'm going to forgive you for only buying the one book since you added me to the family club so I can benefit from rallying the troops.
Rieko:  Right on!  Who needs sleep?



Pippin:  Oh look, Summer Holiday's ugly twin is massaging Alice Spencer-Kim!
Johnny:  Well, since you added the female attire as my second everyday outfit, it's what I change into after every shower.
Pippin:  And that's my fault?
Johnny:  No...it's...well, it's just ridiculously comfortable, okay?



Rieko:  Ummm, Candy?  I think you've had enough to drink, sweetie.
Candy:  Psh, naw!
Rieko:  Well, maybe you could at least get dressed before you traumatize my child-aged son?
Abernathy:  Oh, mom, it's nothing I haven't already seen when reading Grey's Anatomy.
Rieko:  You're such a weird kid.  You get that from your dad.  Let's get you some appropriately-aged friends.



Tanvi:  You're kind of cute.
Abernathy:  Eh, that's a fairly subjective observation. 
Tanvi:  You're weird, but I'm still going to marry you.
Abernathy:  Sorry.  Already married.
Tanvi:  Really?
Abernathy:  Yep.  Trophy wife.
Tanvi:  (sigh)
Abernathy:  By the way, checkmate.
Tanvi:  (double sigh)
Pippin:  And while Abernathy works on the mental skill, Gaivan works on his charisma by practicing a speech.



Gaivan:  And that...people who...because when it's...that they don't...sometimes...except not...
Pippin:  Not sure how that's actually effective.  Anyway, Gaivan has been insanely effective and has maxed mixology, cooking, and gourmet cooking, has completed all 7 whims, finished the master mixologist and master chef aspirations, finished his parties, and has his 4 unique rewards.  As soon as he gets two more promotions, he'll have everything finished other than aging up to elder and having the friends in place.
Rieko:  My scrawny purple-haired fella is so wonderful!
Pippin:  Now if only we had something for him to use for his museum items...



Gaivan:  Pictures...and food...for the camera!
Pippin:  Pictures of food?  Brilliantly appropriate, actually.  Oh, I'll need to build a museum...at some point.  Maybe I'll use the extra money when Johnny moves in his new wing man.  Wait, Johnny, what are you...?



Johnny:  So, that's the job, Victor.
Victor:  Hmm, I don't know.  I'll have to think about it.  I was heading to the gym so...
Johnny:  I'll come with!
Pippin:  Wait, Victor Feng?



Johnny:  (whispering)  ...and if you join The Seed Planters Group, you could pollinate Bella Goth.
Bella:  What?  Did I hear you handsome fellows mention my name?
Victor:  Right.  I'm in!
Pippin:  Excellent.  So we move in Victor, but not Lily, so no additional money.



Pippin:  He does seem really good at this job though...



Pippin:  Yes.  I think this might work out after all.
Johnny:  Fengs for noticing, Pippin.
Pippin:  He's just got that Feng the ladies can't resist.
Victor:  Ugh, I did not sign on for the bad puns.



Victor:  Though I did sign on for this.



Abernathy:  Seriously, though, with that nose you're almost undoubtedly related to the Took line.
Vlad:  I don't think...
Abernathy:  So if you would just let me take a small skin sample, some hair, saliva, maybe a fang, I could determine exactly what the connection is.
Vlad:  I don't think...
Abernathy:  So you keep saying.  It's okay, I'll do the thinking.
Pippin:  Okay, this family's just odd.



Pippin:  Please live forever, Rieko.
Rieko:  Can't promise you forever, but I'm working on lasting as long as I can.
Pippin:  And she's already maxed vampire lore and fishing.  Rieko, you are a wonder!
Rieko:  It's true.
Pippin:  So, with Gaivan in great shape and Abernathy making progress, we bid farewell to the Took household.

Vlad is probably that Took great-uncle who Gaivan has the god sense to never stutter talk to at reunions.

Wow, Gaivan has been moving through all his requirements with incredible speed!

Don't think no one's noticed what you're planning with the redheaded Abernathy and the redheaded Izumi! lol
With my lavender-haired parents and green-haired parents, I switch their toddlers' hair to the appropriate color cuz I have the cc.
As children, they revert to red hair usually cuz I don't have children's hair cc. As teens, they sometimes but not always age up with lavender or green hair (depending on their parents).
I don't know, I guess Abernathy could possibly turn out with lavender or pale blonde hair, but I'm rooting for lavender or red!

Way to go, Gaivan! With only 2 more promotions left, you can perhaps relax a bit. I'd suggest Granite Falls but Gaivan works every weekend...
Great work, Watcher!

Awesome. Abernathy is awesome.

Abernathy obviously isn't modeling his speech on his father. Yes, Rieko needs to live a very long time -- maybe by generation 3, there will be someone with almost as much sense as she has.

Yeah, Gaivan is a rock star!  My big worry now is that the heirs won't be as quick as he has been and they'll stress me out each generation  :=/
Rooting for red hair, eh?  You might get your wish...
I picked Victor purely for the genes.  I think he'll make some really attractive kids.  Of course, his high initial charisma and logic certainly don't hurt  ;=)

Awesome. Abernathy is awesome.
"Sorry, I'm already married." LOL
I'm with you. Rieko, please live forever.

And @Magpie2012, checking graveyard right now...  ;D ;D
So glad you like Abernathy!  I'm rather enjoying him as well!
Fingers crossed that Rieko hangs on for a long while.

Abernathy obviously isn't modeling his speech on his father. Yes, Rieko needs to live a very long time -- maybe by generation 3, there will be someone with almost as much sense as she has.
I'm certainly not expecting Izumi to be able to step into Rieko's role.  Let's hope gen 3 either is or marries someone with some sense.
No, Abernathy did not inherit Gaivan's speech pattern.  He's got his own brand of odd.

Pippin:  We return to the Took household where Victor...



Pippin:  is rather good at his job.



Pippin:  Seriously?  The mother and the daughter?
Victor:  Yeah, holidays with my kids are going to be weird...
Pippin:  Well, redheads, so I'm not going to judge you.
Victor: Fitting since this was your plan.
Pippin:  I didn't hear you objecting.
Victor:  Fair enough.
Pippin:  And as Morgan was arriving, young Abernathy was getting in some time with Gretchen Ojo, daughter of Miko and Raj.



Abernathy:  Gretchen Ojo, daughter of Miko and Raj?  Pippin, are you going to start introducing all of the local children as if they're medieval royalty?
Pippin:  ...maybe?  Though perhaps it was Kiana, daughter of Jeremy Epstein and Libby Cowan, and not Gretchen, who really grabbed his attention.



Kiana:  Hi!  You must be Abernathy.
Abernathy:  Yo, senpai!
Pippin:  Yeah, she's a blue redhead.  She's kind of awesome.



Abernathy:  Yo, trophy wife!  How's eating human food going?
Izumi:  Well, I kind of get sick every time. 
Abernathy:  Hmm, interesting.  (makes notes in his journal)
Izumi:  Yeah, I'm pretty sure I make everyone in the household angry by messing up every toilet in the house.
Abernathy:  Excellent!  Everyone resenting you means no one will mind all that much that I'm using you for experiments!
Izumi:  Somehow, that's not very comforting.
Abernathy:  Oh, and checkmate again, trophy wife.
Izumi:  (sigh)
Pippin:  And as Gaivan gets closer and closer to maxing his career, the family found some time to hit the Stargazer Lounge.
Johnny:  So, scientists discovered a carnivorous tree, but they say not to worry:  its bark is worse than its bite (buh dum tch!)
Crowd:  (laughter)



Johnny:  The scientists wanted to stay and investigate the trees more, but they decided it was time to leaf (buh dum tch!)
Crowd:  (more laughter)



Johnny:  Had they been able to stay, the scientists might have been able to get to the root of the matter (buh dum tch!)
Crowd:  (even more laughter)



Johnny:  Thank you, you've been a not entirely disappointing crowd!
Crowd:  (cheers...for some reason)
Pippin:  And meantime, back at the Took household...



Tanvi:  So, you were just kidding about having a trophy wife, right?
Abernathy:  Nope.  She's the freak show behind you.
Tanvi:  Huh?
Abernathy:  Yo, trophy wife!
Izumi:  So, can I put on normal clothes again?
Abernathy:  Nope.  Social experiment isn't over yet.
Izumi and Tanvi:  (sigh)
Pippin:  Of course, if she was going to change, she'd probably be using the closet and it seems to be frequently occupied by Victor and his...potential voters.



Mila:  Well, councilman, you've definitely got my vote.
Vincent:  ...well...thank you...very much...
Pippin:  Although Johnny was not exactly inactive himself.



Luna:  Ooo, the famous comedian, Johnny Zest! 
Johnny:  And the lovely Luna!  Look how nicely you've grown up.
Luna:  Actually, I look exactly the same only slightly taller.
Johnny:  Exactly!
Pippin:  And the comedian also made some time to visit the triplets he had with Eliza Pancakes.



Johnny:  I made a short stack!
Pippin:  Nice!  And speaking of nice, the household now has a museum!



Rieko:  Nice!



Pippin:  And this is not what Gaivan's section of it looks like anymore, but apparently I didn't take an updated picture.
Johnny:  Nice work, Watcher.
Pippin:  Psh, whatever, man cougar.
Johnny:  Hey!



Pippin:  This is Navya Gupta.  She's stolen Johnny's heart.  She's still a teen.
Johnny:  Her pants match my jacket.  She's my soul mate.



Pippin:  She watched Johnny age up to an adult.
Navya:  Lookin' good there, old man.
Johnny:  (sigh) Why are you so young?
Navya:  Not my fault you're old.
Pippin:  But that wasn't our only birthday.



Rieko:  Woot!!  I am one hot adult!
Izumi:  Yes you are, future mom-in-law.
Candy:  I still resent you, just so you know.
Pippin:  And someone else had a very significant birthday.



Izumi:  Please be handsome!!
Abernathy:  That's rather subjective, really.
Rieko: Psh, he swam out of my gene pool!  He'll look awesome!!



Pippin:  He'll look better after a makeover.
Izumi:  (sigh) He got the nose.
Pippin:  And after his makeover, he hit the gym with several of his school friends...and his trophy wife.



Izumi:  You do realize we aren't married yet, right?
Abernathy:  A mere formality.
Now-teenaged-Tanvi:  Wait, so you're saying I've got a shot?
Kiana:  No, he was saying I have a shot.
Pippin:  And Abernathy was taking a shot at becoming more buff.



Rieko the Gym Trainer:  ARE YOU READY TO GET RIPPED?!?!?
Abernathy:  I'm fairly certain you're threatening me.
Rieko the Gym Trainer:  No, I was just trying to...
Abernathy:  It's okay.  I enjoyed it.
Pippin:  Well, that was weird.  Weird kind of like how Victor's first try with Bella didn't take.  Of course, he didn't mind having a round two...and I didn't mind her sticking around and cleaning the dishes.



Bella:  I'm glad I'll be remembered for something more than my excellent genes.
Pippin:  Indeed.  These clean dishes will be your lasting legacy.
Bella:  Smart alek.
Pippin:  Guilty as charged.  And after Abernathy's teen years have passed, Gaivan has completed all of his requirements with the exception of making two more friends, but has about two weeks until he hits elder status.  Things are definitely looking up...speaking of up...



Gaivan:  ...and the...but lights that...and lifting...



Pippin:  Oops.

I think it's great that Abernathy got the nose. And is that a baby bump in the last picture, or has Gaivan merely been eating gourmet meals instead of fish tacos?

I'm feeling torn about Abernathy's spouse prospects, so I'd like to air my thoughts (whether you're interested or not, lol!!!!).
Of course, redheaded Izumi is gorgeous but she's a vampire so she'll be around forever if she's not cured, ready to take on a later heir.
The blue redheaded Kiana is mortal so she's on a clock.

You mentioned that Abernathy has already passed his teen years. I'm so curious about how Kiana aged up. Of course, she too can become pollination fodder.
I wonder what you decide.

(I love having one of the immortals max Logic to mentor the Mental skill for future Whiz Kids...)

Great update! I'm thrilled how close Gaivan is to completing his career.
And oh oh oh, he's now two weeks and 3 days away from his elder birthday! Wow!

Yes!!  I'm hoping the nose sticks around for a long (no pun intended) time!
The weight gain question will soon be answered ;=)

Haha, amusingly, I'm questioning the Izumi choice.  More on that later.
I actually picked Vincent out of a purely shallow appreciation for his looks.  It's simply a convenient coincidence that he has high logic and charisma.  I'm so not complaining about that!
Clarifying, Abernathy has reached, but not passed, his teen "years."

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Hi Me!
« Reply #47 on: July 14, 2017, 12:19:22 AM »
Pippin:  And so, we rejoin the Took household where, well, this.



Rieko:  Awww, who's a sweet wittle awien baby?  Dat's wight!  You awe!  Pippin, can we keep it?
Pippin:  Sadly no.  We need the extra space in the house.
Rieko:  Why? 
Pippin:  Because I have plans!
Rieko:  I find that statement questionable.
Pippin:  I have vague ideas that may pan out well!
Rieko:  Okay.  I'm on board with that.
Pippin:  Sweet!  Now, poor and heartbroken Johnny should distract himself from being in love with an age-inappropriate gal by hitting the Romance Festival.
Johnny:  Are you serious...?
Pippin:  Less whining!  More festivaling!
Johnny:  That's not even a word.
Pippin:  It totally resembles a word!



Romance Guru:  'ello, mon ami!  You zeem to 'ave ze troublez, no?
Johnny:  No.  I mean, yes.
Romance Guru:  Tell ze Romance Guru, mon ami.
Johnny:  Well, I love someone, but we can't be together, and I kind of am still being used as a pollinator, so even if we could be together, I'd kind of be forced to be unfaithful.
Romance Guru:  Zometimez zere iz ze sairtain peace in zimply knowing what you want and that what you want wantz you back, no?
Johnny:  That...makes sense, actually.  Hey, you're old, right?
Romance:  I zuppoze zo.
Johnny:  I think I may have a job offer for you.
Pippin:  Oooo, you certainly do!!



Romance Guru:  'ello, my leelte bluebell!  I am Jaime.
Yuki:  Jaime?
Romance Guru Jaime:  Eet ees pronounced "HIE-mee."  Like you are, 'ow do you zay, greeting yourzelf.  "Hi, me."
Yuki:  Teehee, you're funny.  And handsome.
Romance Guru Jaime:  Oh 'eavens!  'ow you flatter me, you leetle angel!
Candy:  Seriously?  Sis, do you see how old this dude is?
Yuki:  If by "old" you mean "dreamy" then yes!
Candy:  Psh, I'm out of here.  I can't watch this train wreck.



Pippin:  But the rest of us are more than willing to watch!
Johnny:  This guy is bun-believable!
Pippin:  Truly he has bun-common charm.
Johnny:  And the ladies are pollinated by Johnny, Vinny, and Bunny!
Both:  Hahahahahahaha!
Romance Guru Jaime:  Ah, ze bad punz!  I believe ziz ritual of teazing eez a zignal zat I am accepted, no?
Johnny:  ...k...

Romance Guru Jaime:  Your voice eez ze mozt melodic zing I 'ave ever 'eard!

Pippin:  Well, she seems eloquent.  And the adventures of Romance Guru Jaime continue!



Romance Guru Jaime:  ...zo you zee, zere are many deeferent wayz een which you can be faithful, no?
Jessminder:  Oooo, I think yes!
Pippin:  Umm...Candy?  You're kind of...
Candy:  What?!?  Stupid big-nose didn't pick me and now my sister is pollinated by Father Time over here, so I'm stress eating!  Is that a problem for you?
Pippin:  No, dear.  You're still so beautiful.  Please don't hit me.
Candy:  Okay, but only because you noticed how beautiful I am.
Pippin:  And speaking of beautiful, Gaivan and Rieko shared a truly beautiful moment



Rieko:  Oh my gosh!!!  (aside) Pippin, am I freaking out correctly?
Pippin:  (also aside) Yes, all that practice we did really paid off!
Gaivan:  I...and OW...but it's...OW that...



Pippin:  Aww, a sweet little alien girl!
Gaivan:   Sorry...and that...because room...so going...but still love...and good...miss you...
Rieko:  Oh, sweetie, that was beautiful.
Pippin:  Yeah, it was, actually.



Abernathy:  Yo, trophy wife!
Izumi:  Your stupid family all seem to hate me.
Abernathy:  Yeah they do! 
Candy:  I'm not his family, but I hate you too.
Pippin:  Well, Candy hates everyone, so...
Candy:  (glares)
Pippin:  But she's so beautiful!
Candy:  Better.
Pippin:  Seriously, though, everyone other than Romance Guru Jaime have at least a slight red relationship bar with Izumi.  In fact, even Abernathy has a slightly red relationship bar with Izumi.
Izumi:  Well, he does go out of his way to experiment on me, so...
Pippin:  Less whining!  More positive socializing!  You know, positive socializing, like he does with almost everyone else.



Tanvi:  Wow, these birds are just so angry!
Abernathy:  You aged up looking like some budget version of a community theatre production of The Wizard of Oz.
Tanvi:  (sadly) Oh.
Abernathy:  I like The Wizard of Oz.
Tanvi:  (excitedly) Really?
Abernathy:  Yes. The witch is outstanding!  Dorothy's just kind of whiney.
Tanvi:  (dejectedly) (sigh)



Raj:  So...are we all standing out here to avoid Izumi?
Vincent:  Yep.
Johnny:  Actually, I had a joke about weight gain in the routine I was practicing and I thought Candy was going to kill me, so I came out here.
Raj:  Smart.
Vincent:  Genius-level smart.
Pippin:  And speaking of genius-level smart...well, it doesn't really have anything to do with this, but Gaivan has finally gotten to level 10 of his career and has completed ALL OF HIS REQUIREMENTS!!!  He even has all of his friends and Clara Bjergsen as his unique BFF.  It was going to be Candy, but she's also a good friend of Abernathy since she's at the house all the time.  But anyway, excellent job, Gaivan!



Gaivan:  And that...because I...with this...posing like...and the...since hero!
Pippin:  Yes.  Something like that.
Rieko:  I'm so proud!!
Pippin:  We all are.  Meantime, Abernathy is already hard at work on his requirements and has been working on the Freelance Botanist and Grilled Cheese aspirations.



Abernathy:  Actually, I'm logging exactly how much stomach capacity a male teen Sim has.
Pippin: Okay, as long as you're using grilled cheese to do it!



Morgan:  Umm, Abernathy?  Not to be rude, but have you put on weight?
Abernathy:  Some.  Have you?
Morgan:  Well I'm pregnant, so...
Abernathy:  Cool.  So, have you heard the good news of the grilled cheese?
Pippin:  Oooookay.  So, how about we throw a house party?
Abernathy:  For what reason?
Pippin:  Because requirements.
Abernathy:  That actually makes sense in this context.



Pippin:  Look at Gaivan and Rieko being in the playful aura painting room to help fill that party requirement while also flirting to fill that requirement!
Rieko:  Gotta help out my fellas!
Pippin:  Again, please live forever, Rieko.
Rieko:  Well, how about I help make sure there's at least one good spouse in place before I depart?
Pippin:  Not ideal, but I'll take it.
Rieko:  And speaking of spouses and things not being ideal...



Abernathy:  You should really come inside.  See how it's sunny?  And you're a vampire?  Who's on fire?
Lilith:  I'm melting!!
Abernathy:  Huh, Wizard of Oz again.



Pippin:  Lilith!!!  NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Johnny:  I can't believe she's gone!!
Daisy:  And she always kept my secret that I'm actually an alien. 
Abernathy:  Everybody already knows, Daisy.
Daisy:  What?
Johnny:  It's true.  You walk around in Twi'lek form all the time.
Daisy:  ...oh...



Abernathy:  So, Grim, have you heard the good news of grilled cheese?
Pippin:  Wow, when life hands you apples, you make limes.
Rieko:  Pretty sure that's not how that saying goes.
Abernathy:  No, Mom, it's simple alchemical transmutation.  I could show you some charts of how it would work...
Rieko:  That's okay, sweetie.  Seriously, though, are you sure you want to marry Izumi?  I mean, she's gorgeous, but we all kind of hate her.
Abernathy:  You do remember that you were the one who chose her, right?
Rieko:  Okay, how about I give you some more options?



Tanvi:  So, you don't really have to marry the trophy wife, right?
Abernathy:  Well, if I don't, the name "trophy wife" won't work as well.
Izumi:  Exactly!  And I haven't been putting up with all this nonsense from your family and your experiments only to be booted out now!
Kiana:  Well, I think that statement alone is grounds to throw on the kicking shoes.  Just sayin'.  I mean, come on, I'm blue.  How does that not make me the ideal choice?
Abernathy:  Probably because it's an obscure aesthetic detail.  Just sayin'.
Pippin:  Hmm, other options?



Elsa:  Hi, I'm Elsa.  You must be Pinocchio.
Abernathy:  Ah, a big nose joke.  Clever.
Elsa:  Oh, you speak sarcasm.  Fortunately for you, I'm fluent in that language.
Abernathy:  Indeed?
Elsa:  Yes.  I also used to have a job as an interpreter for bad mimes.
Rieko:  This one at a time nonsense is taking too long.



Pippin:  Potential spouse dance party?
Rieko:  I think yes!!  From left to right we have Izumi, Tanvi Foy, Kiana Cowan, Abernathy (who does not, in fact, have the option of marrying himself), Gretchen Ojo, Alyse Rosa, and Elsa McElroy.



Pippin:  Nice Mohawk, Alyse!  And you really look like an interesting mix of Jeremy and Jade.
Abernathy:  Hey, my wallet's missing...
Alyse:  Oh.  How odd.
Pippin:  Klepto?
Alyse:  ...what was that?  I'm sorry, I seem to have chosen not to hear you.



Pippin:  And yes, the purple-haired beauty is Gretchen Ojo.
Gretchen:  Good thing I favor my mom, right?
Pippin:  Actually, I think you look a lot like your dad...
Gretchen:  Hurtful, Pippin.  Hurtful.  Besides, Dad looks ridiculous in a little black dress!
Pippin:  And these two aren't options yet, but they're adorable!!



Pippin:  The Pancake twins (technically triplets, but the other one's a boy) are getting some time with daddy.
Johnny:  Hi, Macie!
Macie (no glasses):  I'm Macie!  You can tell because Chelsie's the ugly one!
Johnny:  You realize you're identical twins, right?
Chelsie (glasses):  I do, but then again, I'm the smart one.
Pippin:  See?  They'll be excellent when they age up.  Speaking of aging up...



Pippin:  Vincent is an elder!  And sadly Romance Guru Jaime has gotten his first notice from Grim.
Romance Guru Jaime:  It 'az zimply been an 'onor to 'ave been of zerveece.

What a hilarious update!  Whenever Jaime spoke, I kept picturing Peter Sellers (in his Pink Panther role).

How odd about everyone disliking Izumi!!! Does she have that vampire power Aura of the Undead or something?
Oooh, so many prospects for Abernathy! Elsa is so charming!

Way to go, Gaivan! Great job on maxing all your requirements. I'm sorry you couldn't keep the baby!

Congratulations, Gaivan, and sorry about the alien baby.
Jaime's time with us has been too short, but you're probably getting tired of typing "z".
I think Abernathy should marry Gretchen Ojo because 1. pink hair and 2. she's named Gretchen.
