The Took Immortal Dynasty, A Mix of Orange and Blue
« Reply #200 on: November 22, 2017, 02:14:41 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household where Saanvi continues to wander past displaying amazing fashion sense.



Saanvi:  Well, when you're a master vampire, people kind of view you as a fashion icon.
Pippin:  And others view you as a target.
Saanvi:  Ah, you've been chatting with Lacy again.
Pippin:  And speaking of Saanvi...



Pippin:  her little princess, Marjorie, is sooooooooooo cute!
Saanvi:  She takes after her mama.
Pippin:  And Otis, Gaivan and Saanvi's son, has hit childhood.



Otis:  Hello, Simverse! 
Mega-Finley:  Umm, who's the dweeb in the hat?
Mini-Makayla:  Eh, some kid of our grandpa's.
Gaivan:  hey...and the...it's that...he likes...
Otis:  You know, in my head, this introduction went much more smoothly.
Pippin:  Welcome to my world, kid.  Anyway, Milo had a couple of days off from work, so we turn our attention to knocking out party requirements.



Pippin:  And we invite lots of Abernathy's children.
Marilyn Landgraab (in front):  Looks like it's a ginger-only party.
Makayla:  Yes, but some of us make ginger look gooooooood!
Milo:  I'm orange.
Pippin:  Hmmm, looks like we need some flirting socials.
Wade:  On it!!



Amelia:  Easy, old timer.  Don't want to blow out your pace maker.
Wade:  I love you.
Amelia:  I know.
Pippin:  Hmm, also a game playing requirement.
Wade:  I'm on that too!



Pippin:  Wow.  You're really gung ho about this.
Wade:  My son is not going to be the generation that loses this dynasty!
Pippin:  Ah, apparently you're familiar with my track record.
Amelia:  Yeah, I might have let that slip.  Sorry, Pippin.
Pippin:  (blushes)  Anyway, at the second party, we have more flirty requirements.
Chantons:  Just when you need me
                 I'll be there




Pippin:  Well, that's definitely filling the requirements.  Of course, that means they aren't really keeping an eye on Raven.  Then again, what could possibly go wrong?



Pippin:  Oh.  Though the real purpose of this second party is...



Pippin:  a wedding! 



Pippin:  And after the happy couple tie the knot...



Pippin:  dance party!!
Makayla:  You know, this dynasty will be over before too long, and you'll need a founder for the next challenge...
Pippin:  ...I'll keep you in mind, Mega-Finley.
Makayla:  Makayla.
Pippin:  That's totally what I said!
Amelia:  Yeah, Mega-Finley is Swedish for Makayla.
Pippin:  Thank you, Amelia.  Thank you!  Anyway, speaking of weddings, Gaivan and Saanvi had a very quiet eloping ceremony on the porch.



Gaivan:  With you...and ring...because symbol...and love.
Saanvi:  Awww, you're so sweet!



Pippin:  Wooo!!  Confetti!  Now it's a party!  And speaking of parties...



Pippin:  having the fourth immortal locked in place certainly seems like grounds for a party!  Not that they're having one...



Pippin:  Milo and Maya are way too cute and I take way too many pictures of them.
Milo:  My beautiful blue rose.
Maya:  The orange of my sunshine.
Pippin:  Weird, yes, but cute.



Lacy:  The princess is also cute!
Pippin:  Marjorie sure is.
Lacy:  (glares)
Pippin:  ...it was a joke.  Please don't stake me.
Lacy:  I'm going to let it slide this time, Pippin.
Pippin:  Phew!
Abernathy:   Ummm, help?



Pippin:  But the satellite was activated!
Amelia:  Today?
Pippin:  Well, maybe not, but still!
Amelia:  Don't worry, Maya's very pregnant, so no alienboos.
Abernathy:  Umm, still being probed...
Pippin:  And it seems turnabout is fair play as Abernathy becomes the aliens' test subject.



Jayden:  ...and his transforming feature on the SimRay gives me such interesting eyes and hair color!  Isn't that just the best thing ever?!?
Maya:  You're not blue. 
Pippin:  But Chantons wears blue and has such a happy little family.



Pippin:  He's hoding little baby Ciara, Raven you've met, and Alyssa is still in mommy's tummy in this shot.
Chantons:  You make me so
                 Very happy
                 I'm so glad you
                 Came into my life

Anabelle:  Awww, baby, that's so sweet!
Pippin:  Okay.  They're adorable.  And they have such cute little girls.  Speaking of having a little girl...



Pippin:  Maya went into labor and gave birth...



Pippin:  (sigh) to another boy.  What are you going to name our gen 6 Took?
Maya:  Blue and orange came together perfectly, so he is the combination of blue and orange.
Pippin:  Umm, brown?
Maya:  Blurange!
Pippin:  ...middle school might be hard for this one.  Welcome to the family, Blurange.

Lol, Blurange....poor kid.   And wow, yet another male Took!
Well, the Watcher is having such a blast with the pollinating results so it's works out quite perfectly for this challenge. :D

Very lucky timing for Abernathy (and for the Took Dynasty) about his abduction.
Would have been such divine retribution if Abernathy had gotten pregnant but not after Maya moved in, lol.

Oops, seems I congratulated Wade one update early. Never mind...congratulations on your fourth immortal, Pippin!
Your dynastic cup is now more than half-full!  :D

FYI--The Dynasy is briefly on hold as I just purchased the Parenthood expansion.  I'll be using Chantons and Anabelle's adorable little family to check out how this works before I risk making any serious mistakes with young Blurange.  If you'd like to follow along with this side story, click here.

Yep, over halfway there!
I was so glad that Maya's pregnancy was already locked in before the abduction happened!  I had already waited about a week after Milo's age up for them to try for baby because Valentin held on way longer than expected.  In fact, I had to have him repollinate a number of the local ladies just to ensure there were options that wouldn't be too age-advanced for Blurange.
I appreciate you always posting positive feedback.  It really helps keep me focused and motivated  :=)

The Took Immortal Dynasty, All Dressed Up

Well, I'm actually doing the Took on Parenthood story to take the Parenthood expansion for a test drive before unleashing it in the midst of my dynasty, but I had enough screenshots already done that I decided to go ahead and put up another update.  Enjoy!

Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household where we find that Jeanette's protégé, Hande Gill, has aged up to teen.



Pippin:  I think she's rather lovely and I'm rather saddened that Valentin took so long to clear space for Blurange to join the household as I am now thinking she might be too old to be his cougar spouse.
Amelia:  Really, Pippin?  "Cougar spouse?"
Pippin:  Definitely wanting a cougar spouse!  I mean, we'll need the space cleared in the household to bring in Blurange's spouse and gen 7. 
Amelia:  Heartless but practical, eh?
Pippin:  Exactly!  Anyway, Milo is quite the proud papa.



Milo:  He's the orangest blue I've ever seen!
Maya:  True.  He is perfection.
Pippin:  I understand the words they say, I just don't always know what those words mean when they use them.  Anyway, party time!
Amelia:  We should do a spooky party.
Pippin:  Why is that?



Amelia:  Because I make this look good!
Wade:  So true!  And I'm the Centurian.
Amelia:  Alright, let's carve those pumpkins.



Amelia:  Umm, you can start carving any time...?
Wade:  Sorry.  Just really distracted by the view.
Amelia:  Awww.
Wade:  Seriously, you've bewitched me.
Pippin:  He's so smooth!  Milo, on the other hand, is not that smooth and makes really odd costume choices.



Milo:  Blue llama, but the face is kind of orange.
Astronaut:  Umm, that's nice.  I heard there'd be dancing?
Pippin:  Gold medal achieved.  You may dance now.



Abernathy:  Yeah, bust a move!



Lacy (as a witch):  When you guys said, "get down," you were being literal, right?  Right?
Pippin:  Sure they were.
Amelia:  Nice costume, Lace!
Lacy:  You too, Amelia!
Pippin:  And now it's time to get that gold medal date.



Pippin:  Umm, why are you still in your costume?
Maya:  He looks so handsome all dressed up.
Milo:  Blue and orange!
Pippin:  Oh look, they have to kiss.  This won't be awkward.



Pippin:  Yes, it looks like she's being attacked by a flying llamacorn.  Pretty sure people have called the police.
Maya:  My turn!



Pippin:  They are so weird.  Cute, but weird.  And now they set out to ensure they have some potential cougar spouses in their relationship panel to help young Blurange keep an eye on things.



Pippin:  And he's still in the costume.
Maya:  He looks so sophisticated!
Pippin:  Here are our options at Casa Lynx.  We'll have a stronger idea of how solid these options are as they age up, but my hopes are pretty high.



Pippin:  And we have some nice options at the Rosa household in the toddler range...





Pippin:  as well as a couple in the child range.  And speaking of babies...



Pippin:  Blurange will have a similarly-aged...multiple times great uncle or aunt.  Immortals make for weird family dynamics.
Gaivan:  But they...and when...because we live...and when they...you know?
Saanvi:  Yes, dear, our love can last forever and family is the most central part and lasting impact.
Pippin:  Really?  He said that?
Saanvi:  Basically.  I'm paraphrasing.
Pippin:  ...wow...that's pretty amazing.  You two are glorious together and I hope nothing bad ever happens to you.



Saanvi:  Aww, thanks, Pippin.

Pippin:  And with that, we leave the Took household for a while to go hang out with...the other Took household...We'll return to this once I've gotten comfortable enough with the Parenthood features to trust that I can use it to benefit the dynasty and avoid negative surprises.

Who is Jeannette and how is Hande Gill her protegee? (I am unable to keep all the offspring straight. Sorry!)

With all the pollinating, does your world still generate households with young children?

Gaivan really chose his second wife well! The immortal Saanvi will always be at his side!

Jeanette is the daughter of Cierra Calente (who was the only Caliente left) and Abernathy.  She used to jump in the trash can as a child.  Two updates ago, Hande made a comment about wanting to be as cool as Jeanette when she grew up.
Saanvi is wonderful.  She's no Reiko, but she's pretty great.
Randomly generated children still show up now and again.

The Took Immortal Dynasty, A Nice, Friendly Hug
« Reply #207 on: November 30, 2017, 07:40:20 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household to find young Blurange hitting his toddler birthday...



Pippin:  and learning to be in two places at once.
Milo:  He's in the crib, but he's in Blue's hands.  He's orange and blue!  Two in one!
Pippin:  Umm, probably just a game glitch, actually, but okay.  Anyway, Maya proves to be a super sweet and fun mama.



Blurange:  WHHEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Pippin:  But when she needs to put her foot down, she does.



Maya:  There is no orange or blue in this mess!  You should be ashamed, young man!
Pippin:  Oooookay, it's a lecture.  Not about the right thing, perhaps, but still a lecture.  Speaking of lectures, no one ever lectured Abernathy's daughter, Jeanette Caliente, when she would jump in the trash can as a child, so here she is as a teen.



Jeanette:  Woot!  Treasures!
Pippin:  Someone should have lectured that child.  Seems Ciera Caliente was not the ideal nurturer.    You know who is a rather awesome nurturer?



Maya:  Me!
Pippin:  Oh.  I was going to say Anabelle is the one, but you're good too.
Blurange:  Mama two!  Anabelle one!
Maya:  Gee, thanks, Pippin.
Pippin:  Well, at least I helped with teaching him to talk.  Anyway, when Jeanette is not busy digging through the trash, she's becoming one of Milo's good friends.



Jeanette:  So, these aren't just fancy salt shakers?
Milo:  Nope, they're non-orange chess pieces.
Jeanette:  ...any chance you plan to throw them away soon?
Pippin:  And even though Milo was getting in some time with Jeanette, he found plenty of time for another lady.



Maya:  Mwwwwwwwwaaaaaahhhhhhh!
Milo:  (contented sigh)
Pippin:  And another Took male had some time with a significant lady...



Pippin:  as Milo and Maya double dated with Gaivan and Saanvi.  Meantime, back at home...



Pippin:  Abernathy had some private time with his distant second favorite gal.
Jayden:  Oh, Abernathy, you make me feel so special.
Abernathy:  And you are special relative to everyone other than my wife.
Jayden:  Awww, that's so sweet!
Pippin:  It's kind of sweet, I guess, but Gaivan and Saanvi are super sweet.



Saanvi:  Sweetie, I love you so very much.
Gaivan:  And I...because we...and you...that I...
Saanvi:  Aww, thanks, but seriously, if you could ask your daughter to stop chasing me around with stakes and garlic, I'd sure appreciate it.
Gaivan:  She...we've had...and sometimes...because she wants...and not you...but when...because.
Pippin:  Yeah, I think Lacy is like a force of nature.  She cannot be stopped, you can only hope to contain her.  Meantime, the wishing well got involved.
Milo:  Can I be assured a promotion during my next shift?



Wishing Well:  Considering how much you just bribed me, I'm giving you a full promotion right now.
Milo:  Woot!  Level 7!  I think we just became best friends.  Anything other than bribes I can do for you?
Wishing Well:  Hey, if I can get even half as much screen time as Fluffy, I'll be happy.
Milo:  ...I'll see what I can do.  I mean, your rock coloring is vaguely orange-ish.
Pippin:  But someone else is certain to get lots of screentime.



Blurange:  Mommy two!  Anabelle one!
Maya:  Ugh.  Not pleased with this, Pippin.
Pippin:  I'm sorry. 
Milo:  Honey, let's go to GeekCon.
Maya:  Only if we can take a ride in the rocket.



Milo:  Woohoo!
Maya:  Exactly!
Pippin:  And after they land, Milo goes off to take first place in the Hackathon...



Pippin:  while Maya, who came back invisible, plays on the video gaming system.



Pippin:  She's in the middle holding the weirdly floating controller.
Maya:  Having trouble seeing me?  Strange.  I show up amazingly well on the scoreboard.
Other gamers:  Ugh, so true.
Pippin:  And Milo takes advantage of the social setting to help get his unique best friend locked in place.



Pippin:  Cierra Kim-Lewis.  She's one of the triplets Wade had hit up for votes back before he hit immortality.  I think she's lovely and she totally would have been a spouse option if Maya hadn't come along.
Maya:  You know I can hear you, right?
Pippin:  OHMYGOSH!  I forgot you're invisible!



Pippin:  Aww, what a nice, friendly hug.
Maya:  It had better stay only a friendly hug.  I'm invisible, so I can stalk her if she turns into a man-stealing harpy.
Pippin:  ...this escalated quickly.  Anyway, Cierra gets locked into place as best friend and we return home to find that some of our artwork has become weird static patterns.



Pippin:  I'm hoping that glitch sorts itself out.
Gaivan:  Me too...and that's...because when...and not how...that they...and now!
Pippin:  Probably good points, Gaivan.



Pippin:  So with four immortals locked in place, Milo is effectively just three promotions and hitting elder stage away from adding a fifth.  Meantime, Blurange is still days away from hitting childhood and I really wish early age-ups were legal for IDC's.

The Took Immortal Dynasty, It's All a Blur
« Reply #208 on: December 03, 2017, 01:07:04 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household...well, we return to the household, but not the house.



Pippin:  And we find simultaneous curing of pets!  Of course, if Catarina Lynx ever finds a different vet, we may go out of business.
Milo:  Well, your pet's all cured.  Nice GopherGirl costume, by the way.
Cosplayer:  ...I'm supposed to be LlamaMan...



Pippin:  And we turn Chantons' attention from direct pet care to crafting dog treats.  You know, because we aren't already most of the way to 2 million simoleans.
Amelia:  Pippin, you know the real goal is to see if it increases the star rating for the vet clinic.
Pippin:  ...it is?  Anyway, we also invite some guests to the clinic.  It's Gaivan and Saanvi's oldest children, Otis and Marjorie (who has hit her childhood years).



Milo:  Umm, it's warm in here.  You could take your hat off?
Otis:  No, it's stylish!
Marjorie:  Yeah, his idea of "style" leaves a little to be desired.
Pippin:  Anyway, we spend a bit more time working and visiting at the clinic and then head home as something very important is about to happen.



Milo:  Well, your birthday is here, and you might develop as a little more blue or a little more orange, but regardless of how you grow up, your mom and I will still love you.  But don't be red.  Red is just wannabe orange.
Blurange:  ...k?
Maya:  Cake time!  Did you tell him the thing about red?
Milo:  Yes, of course.
Blurange:  Mama two, Anabelle one!
Maya:  I hope he outgrows that.



Pippin:  Some extinguished candles, some confetti, and perhaps some stray toddler droll later...



Pippin:  And a very angry-looking child version of Blurange appeared.
Blurange:  I just aged up and realized how much of an issue my name might be in middle school.  Call me "Blur" from now on.
Pippin:  Blur?
Blurange Blur:  Yes?
Pippin:  What?  No.  I wasn't calling you, I was making sure I had it right.
Blurange Blur:  Had what right?
Pippin:  Blur.
Blurange Blur:  Yes?
Amelia:  And that continued for the first few hours of young Blur's childhood, but eventually, we moved forward.
Pippin:  Oh.  Yes.  That.  And that night, Milo took Blur and several of the child-aged Sims Milo already knew to the park so Blur could work on the social butterfly aspiration by meeting new people.



Blurange Blur:  ...so then the duck says, "Why am I being stuck with the bill?"
Children:  (laughter)
Pippin:  And Milo, who has already maxed logic, got in some time playing chess with Asia Rouse.



Asia:  So, if I hold this piece up here long enough, will you forget where it originally was so I can put it wherever I want?
Milo:  ...what?  Sorry.  I was watching my little blue and orange boy make friends.
Asia:  Oh.  In that case, checkmate.
Milo:  ...what?
Pippin:  It may not have been the best game he's ever played.  And while that was happening...



Pippin:  Abernathy and Jayden's daughter, Makayla, walked by looking all sorts of lovely.
Makayla:  It's true.  You've saved me to your gallery, right?
Pippin:  (blushing) Yes.  But after the park, Blur hit the Goth household to meet young Daisy Goth.



Eileen:  (yawn) So you're the new dynasty heir?
Blurange Blur:  Yep. Don't get too excited about meeting me.
Eileen:  Well, you did come at 2 in the morning.
Blurange Blur:  ...fair enough.
Pippin:  And while we were there, Eileen started representing the Lollipop Guild.



Eileen:  Not funny, Pippin.
Pippin:  I disagree.
Daisy:  He's right, mom.  It's kind of hilarious.
Eileen:  (glares and mumbles angrily)
Pippin:  And after school the next day, Blur invites over his friend Jena Lynx, who has aged up to teen.



Blurange Blur:  So, you wanna keep standing there looming over me, Amazon?
Jena:  Better watch your mouth, shrimp, or I might have to step on you.
Pippin:  And in no time, they had achieved best friend status.



Jena:  So, why are we staring at the ceiling of your porch?
Blurange Blur:  Because you're a pasty white ginger and I figure this is the only way you can cloudgaze without getting a sunburn.
Jena:  You're a jerk.
Blurange Blur:  It is a valuable life skill I have.
Pippin:  Oddly enough, Blur finished the social butterfly aspiration more quickly than any previous heir. 
Blurange Blur:  It's obviously because I'm so loveable.
Jena:  Or because everyone just pitied you so much, loser.
Pippin:  Ah, friendship.  At any rate, Blur continues his social ways and should have no trouble having his six good friends and unique bestie in place by the time he hits young adulthood.  Here he is making friends at the Spencer-Kim household.



Kaci Spencer-Kim:  ...and anyway, she always exposes her mid-riff and it's so gross and I'm all like "Put some clothes on" and she's all nasty teen bossypants.
Keisha Spencer-Kim:  You know you're adopted, right?
Pippin:  Keisha has the mean trait, as does...



Pippin:  Tianna Rosa, the eldest daughter of Laura Rosa and our final pollinator, Valentin.
Tiana:  Look how pretty my nails are!
Blurange Blur:  I don't actually see and color on them...?
Tiana:  Oh, that's because I painted them with the tears of my siblings.
Kale (fittingly in green):  It's true.  She does.
Pippin:  She seems lovely!  And Naomi Spencer-Kim...



Pippin:  seems like a handful.
Blurange Blur:  These Spencer-Kim girls are awesome!
Pippin:  I think you and I have different definitions of that word.  But speaking of my understanding of awesome...



Pippin:  Gaivan, who is skilled at learning such things, found that Jena is a good vegetarian unlike her unfortunate older sister, Kristin, who is creative but mean.
Blurange Blur:  So, you're saying I should have become besties with Kristin since she's actually cool?
Jena:  I will squash you like the bug you are, shrimp.
Burange Blur:  A shrimp is a crustacean, not a bug.
Jena:  Stupid mental aspiration.
Pippin:  And speaking of aspirations...



Pippin:  Maya is going for the super Parent aspiration.
Maya:  You did your homework!  I'm so pleased that you did the bare minimum thing you were supposed to do!
Blurange Blur:  Umm, thanks?  Guess I'll go hang out with Kaci now.
Maya:  No!  You will learn to say sorry and you will like it!
Blurange Blur:  I'm sorry I have to sit here and learn to say sorry.
Maya:  Oh, you said it twice!  I'm awesome!  You may go.
Blurange Blur:  ...I'm raising myself, aren't I?
Pippin:  Psh, no.  You've got Granny Amelia.
Amelia:  It's true.
Pippin:  And Blur heads outside only to discover that his friend Kaci is being frightened by a vampire.



Aditya:  Bleh bleh bleh!  I'm a scary vampire!  Fear me!
Kaci:  AHH!!  I'm scared!
Blurange Blur:  I got this.



Blurange Blur:  BOO!!
Aditya:  AHH!!!  Don't eat me!!
Blurange Blur:  Oh man, you are such a baby!
Aditya:  (sigh) it's true.  I just scare children to try to boost my low self-esteem.



Blurange Blur:  (mocking) Oooo, I've got such low self-esteem.  I need to scare children to feel like I'm not a loser.
Aditya:  Haha!  Nice!  That sounded just like me!
Pippin:  Yes, he does nothing but mischief socials and they become friends.
Kaci:  Blur, you're the best!
Blurange Blur:  That's true.
Pippin:  And we have Blur's father, Milo, only two promotions and the age-up to elder away from becoming our fifth immortal and young Blur has already hit level 3 of mischief and level 3 of creativity, has a best friend and several others in or near best friend status.  Things are going well!

I agree that Makayla is very lovely! And she aged up into a redhead just for you, Pippin!

Is Blur preparing to go into Chief of Mischief? I love that aspiration!
My imagination or has Milo's generation passed very quickly?

Go go, Milo! You are just an update away from immortality! :D

I'm glad you enjoy the jerk-child.  He's rather fun to write.
Thank you so much for the compliment!  I always hope that people enjoy my writing, so the validation is nice to hear read!

Chief of mischief?  Maybe public enemy?  Maybe both?  Yeah, it's both.
Makayla is like a Took version of Nina Caliente (who you know I have a super soft spot for)!
Milo has actually only just hit adulthood, so he's still 20ish days from elderhood.  Maya, on the other hand, is under a week away.

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Cry It Out
« Reply #212 on: December 04, 2017, 09:21:17 PM »
Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household where we're being visited by the Avengers.  Oh look, it's Black Widow!



Makayla:  Nice one, Pippin.
Pippin:  But something other than nice happened as we got the warning that Amelia was not much longer for this world.
Wade:  No!  I refuse!
Amelia:  Sweetie, it's the natural course.  And besides, I'll need to pass on so Blur can bring in a spouse.
Wade:  No.
Amelia:  Take me out for a special night so you'll have great memories.
Wade:  (sobs) Okay.



Pippin:  Your formal attire compliments each other so well!!
Amelia:  Well, we are the unsung fashion icons of this dynasty.
Pippin:  So true!



Wade:  Ooo, look.  This one has weird squiggly lines!  Oh, and this one has globs of multi-colored goo!
Amelia:  I can dress you up, but I can't take you anywhere.
Wade:  No, really, I think the goo-glob surprise looks divine.
Amelia:  You're a doof!
Pippin:  And they ordered things that were vaguely food-like.



Wade:  Yum!  This tastes like chicken.  If chicken were made of...chocolate...?
Amelia:  I'm...I'm really not sure if this is food or just decoration...?
Pippin:  And after eating stuff that might have been food, they ran off before paying their bill, got suitably reprimanded, and arrived at the park in San Myshuno.



Wade:  A single rose, my love, as a symbol that without you, I will always be single.
Amelia:  You silly fool.  You can remarry and go on without me.
Wade:  I can't.  No one would ever be good enough to replace you.  Besides, I'll have our glorious doof of a son to keep me company.
Amelia:  Oh, sweetie...
Wade:  C'mon.  Let's renew our vows!



Wade:  With this ring, I thee wed.  Again.  Forever.  And ever.
Amelie:  Oh, doofblossom!
Pippin:  I now pronounce you still man and wife, you may kiss the bride.



Pippin:  And with the kissing finished, they move on to...other things...



Pippin:  Meantime, our gen 6 heir works on that mischief skill.
Blurange Blur:  Put 'er there, Daisy.



Daisy:  wuhwuhwuhwuhwuhwuh! 
Blurange Blur:  Hahahaha!  That must have been rather shocking!
Daisy:  Whoo!  Good one!  Blur, you're just the best!



Pippin:  I do not get why people like him so much!  Anyway, Gaivan went for a dance party date with Saanvi...



Pippin:  and decided to make sure everything was in order in the coat closet.



Saanvi:  It was, but we fixed that!
Gaivan:  And the...with you...whoo!!
Pippin:  And Abernathy had a nice, romantic date with his second favorite gal.



Jayden:  Oh, Abernathy, I love you so much.
Abernathy:  And I...well...I kind of love you, but not nearly as much as Izumi.
Pippin:  That may be the nicest thing he's ever said to her.  Meantime, Gaivan's daughter, Marjorie, finally reached her teen years and ended up as a purple-eyed vampire.



Marjorie:  Well, the princess role clearly belongs to me now.
Lacy:  NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pippin:  Meantime, Blur got in plenty of time doing character value building things like setting the table.



Blurange Blur:  No one in this family eats, so why do I have to do this?
Maya:  Less questioning, more value building!
Pippin:  Excellent parenting!  And Blur also invests time finishing off aspirations.



Blurange Blur:  So.  Playing with toys.  Totally enjoying this.  Hooray or whatever.
Pippin:  Whatever indeed!  He's already maxed social butterfly, finished off artistic prodigy, and is halfway through whiz kid and rambunctious scamp.
Milo:  When orange and blue come together, awesome things happen. 
Pippin:  And speaking of awesome, how about Anabelle's outfit?



Chantons:  I believe in miracles
                 Where're you from?
                 You sexy thang!

Pippin:  But some less-than-awesome occurred.



Amelia:  It's my time, everyone.  Saanvi, keep an eye on things for me.
Saanvi:  Will do.
Wade:  Amelia?



Wade:  NNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Grim:  I'm sorry.  You know I have to do this, right?  I mean, it's not like I enjoy taking loved ones away.
Wade:  (weeps like a baby)



Grim:  Amelia Behr-Took, you were an almost Reiko-level spouse and will be sorely missed.
Wade:  (sobs) I can't believe she's gone.  I just...I can't...



Grim:  There there, big guy. 
Wade:  (weeps)
Grim:  Just cry it out.  I got you.
Pippin:  Amelia Behr-Took, you were an amazing helper, a great mother, and an excellent level-headed leader for the household.  You will be terribly, terribly missed.

Yeah, Amelia was a lovely addition to the household.  Too bad Milo didn't end up with the blue hair.

No, not Amelia! Thank you for the retrospective screenshots of Amelia! I'd always wanted to see more of her!

I'm glad you enjoyed Amelia.  I was quite fond of her as well (as evidenced by how I jettisoned my entire concept for how I was going to write Wade's portion of the story.
Yeah, Marjorie is a cutie pie!  She may already be saved to my gallery  ;=)

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Bear With Me
« Reply #216 on: December 10, 2017, 01:03:15 AM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household, still saddened by the loss of Amelia, but delighted with the progress made by young Blur.



Blurange Blur:  Woot!  Three times across the monkey bars!  I'm gonna knock out all three child aspirations! 
Jena:  And the bragging's begun before he's even done it.
Naomi Spencer-Kim:  Yeah, he's gonna end up being unbearable!
Blurange Blur:  Unbearable?  So, not a bear?  I can fix that.



Blurange Blur:  Hey, everybody!  I'm home!  I'm a bear now!
Milo:  A bear?
Blurange Blur:  To be specific, strawbeary.
Pippin:  Ugh, my puns aren't even that bad!
Saanvi:  Actually, since you're the Watcher, doesn't that mean his bad pun is actually your bad pun?
Pippin:  Stop breaking the fourth wall!!
Saanvi:   Actually, aren't you breaking it?
Pippin:  Anyway, the young heir creates health and emotion potions along his way to maxing child aspirations and uses those as his museum items.



Pippin:  And they go in his very empty-looking section of the museum.
Saanvi:  So, are you not going to tell them about the near-crisis?
Pippin:  (sigh) I forgot about the ambrosia this Monday and all three of our immortals got their "make the most of these last days" warnings on Wednesday.
Saaniv:  A near-fail before gen 5 is immortal.



Pippin:  They all survived!
Saanvi:  And speaking of reminders that life is a brief gift...



Jayden:  I'm sorry I'm old and undesirable now.  I'll understand if you want to find a new mistress.
Abernathy:  You silly duck, there is no one for me but my wife, but a distant amount of space after her, there's only you.



Jayden: Oh, Abernathy!
Blurange Blur:  Ugh!  Get a room!  With you two doing that smooch nonsense, I'm not a pineapple bear, it's more like a painapple bear!
Pippin:  Somewhere, the ghost of Johnny is smiling.  You know, we should probably do something about this bear phase.
Maya:  On it!!



Maya:  Bear costumes are awesome!
Blurange Blur:  Umm, maybe I'll go without mine for just a bit...
Pippin:  Unorthodox approach, perhaps, but apparently effective.  With the bear crisis seemingly averted, the family put in some time at the clinic, but invited visitors along.



Saanvi:  So, is there some reason Marjorie hasn't gotten a decent makeover yet?
Marjorie:  Mom!
Saanvi:  Sweetie, you're the daughter of a master vampire.  There is a fashion requirement that comes along with that.
Marjorie:  You are so embarrassing sometimes!
Pippin:  Aww, Blur gets a nice hug from Kaci Spencer-Kim and Milo gets a bear hug...



Pippin:  and kiss.
Marjorie:  This family is so embarrassing!!
Blurange Blur:  So, Kaci, I'm totally going to keep talking to you and not acknowledge that mushy stuff is happening between my father and mama bear.  I suggest you join me in pretending nothing is happening.
Kaci:  Yes, I agree completely with that.  High five!
Pippin:  And young Blur gets in time with other teens.



Blurange Blur:  Oooo, I'm Kristyn and I'm so mean!
Jena:  Oh my gosh, you sounded just like her!
Kristyn:  I would be offended, but she's right.  That does sound like me.
Pippin:  And Jena displayed her softer side.



Jean:  I miss the cats!  I miss them so much!!  (sobs)
Pippin:  I think you should comfort her, Blur.
Blurange Blur:  I...uh...there there...(pats her back)
Pippin:  You're not good at this.
Blurange Blur:  Hey, no kid has earned the empathy trait yet.  Cut me some slack!
Pippin:  Fair enough.  Anyway, another male and female pairing were getting in some time together.



Milo:  You looked amazing in that bear suit!
Maya:  Well, I'll bet I look even better without it.
Milo:  I agree!!
Pippin:  Look away, children.  But later, another couple was using that exact same room.



Jayden:  Your certain I can still pull of this exciting underthings look?
Abernathy:  Oh yes, and "pull off" was a rather accurate word choice.
Pippin:  Shame on you.  Unfortunately, this would prove to be their last time together.



Jayden:  Hmmm, if memory serves, having a pulse is important.  I kind of don't...(falls)
Grim:  Abe, I'm sorry but...
Abernathy:  (snores)
Grim:  Oh.  I'll, umm, I'll just be quiet then...



Abernathy:  (snores)  wha...?



Abernathy:  Jay...Jayden?
Grim:  Sorry, Abe.  It was her time.
Abernathy:  I...she was...I actually...I really loved her...significantly less than my wife, but I did really love her.
Grim:  You heard when I said "sorry," right?
Abernathy:  ...but loved her...and I never told her...
Grim:  Ummm...I'll just...go now...sorry again...
Pippin:  Yes.  This is awkward.  And sad.  Let's speak of happier things.



Blurange Blur:  Hey, guess who's already maxed all four childhood aspirations and is about to hit his teen birthday.  This guy!!
Ericka Rosa:  Yeah, and I notice he's not mentioning that this genius keeps beating him at chess and he can only defeat  losers like Naomi, no offense, Naomi.
Naomi:  Umm, offence taken!
Pippin:  And someone else who should have been taking offence...



Pippin:  was Martina O'Reilly.  She's an alien who is carrying Abernathy's twin children (it would turn out) from experimenting he did before Jayden passed away.  Now, she's just a cleaning slave.



Martina:  I.  Am.  So.  Happy.  I.  Clean.  For.  You.
Maya:  She seems nice! 
Milo:  And she's getting the kitchen tidy for cake time!
Pippin:  Speaking of cake time...



Milo:  Happy birthday, Blurange!
Maya:  The cleaning slave did a bad job in here.
Milo:  Well, she had no orange.
Maya:  True.  Quite true.
Pippin:  And anyway, candles are blown out...



Milo:  Ooooooo, the light is so orange!
Pippin:  And Blur is quite pleased with his own appearance.



Blurange Blur:  Nah, this is the "before" picture.
Pippin:  Before?



Blurange Blur:  And after!

Close call with the Ambrosia there, Watcher!
So glad you were able to assemble your immortals in time!!!

Poor Jayden! Abernathy, you didn't deserve her, the way you always talked down to her! (>_<)
On the other hand, I look forward to see if his alien twins sport the Took schnozz.

Ericka Rosa is very cute! Too bad an older spouse works out easier for the Gen 6 heir.
Sadly, Blur's bear phase was very short! I wish it had overlapped with Bears' Night so he and Maya could have gone and mingled, lol.

Finally, happy birthday, Blur! A future Oracle or Boss?

Yeah, Jayden was a sweetheart and Abernathy really just couldn't commit to anyone other than Izumi.  He did love Jayden in his own, weird way, but definitely not as much as she loved him.
Yeah, an older spouse would make sense, but when have I ever let making sense get on the way  ;=)
Bear night during bear phase would have been so amazing!
And as if a Took would be anything other than the boss  ;=)

Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household where Blur is enjoying some time with his fellow teens.



Blurange Blur:  Alright!  Let's find some losers I can insult so we can get going on these aspirations!
Jena:  Umm, so why did you bring all of us along?
Blurange Blur:  You're my entourage, obviously!



Blurange Blur:  Oooo, sparks are really flying!
Pippin:  And later...



Blurange Blur:  Hey, would you like some of this red slushy?
Naoki:  Oh, yes please.



Blurange Blur:  There you go!
Naoki:  Oww!!  It got in my eyes!!
Pippin:  And even later...



Blurange Blur:  Wow, Ericka, the rest of your outfit's fine, but I've really gotta get you out of those pants!
Ericka:  EXCUSE me?!?!



Blurange Blur:  No!  Not what I meant!  It's just...because fashion...and not looking...I...I didn't mean...
Erica:  I know, I was just messing with you.
Blurange Blur:  You...that was just evil.
Ericka:  Thank you!
Blurange Blur:  Well, I'd love to chat more...like really would love to chat more, but I've got to go clog drains for my aspiration.
Ericka:  What a weird thing to say.  Alright.  Just come over and vandalize my house last.
Blurange Blur:  ...really?
Ericka:  Well, you do owe me a makeover, after all.





Pippin:  Umm, aren't you worried about being caught?
Blurange Blur:  Nah, I brought grandpa Wade along to campaign.
Pippin:  Smart!



Wade:  Hello, young Simericans.  You might notice that, as an unwatched household, you don't receive bills.  That's my doing.  If you'd like to continue not receiving bills, re-elect me, Wade Took!
Jessie:  Well, he's certainly got my vote!
Pippin:  And inside the house...



Blurange Blur:  Right, final sink clogged.  Time to do a makeout...makeover!  I meant makeover!
Pippin:  Suuuuuuuuure you did.



Ericka:  Alright, dynasty boy, lets see if you have any fashion sense.
Blurange Blur:  Says the girl wearing pants that look like spandex curtains.
Ericka:  Touche.
Pippin:  And a short while later...



Ericka:  I love it!
Blurange Blur:  I love you too...I mean...that you love it...I love that...you do.
Pippin:  Smooth.
Ericka:  So, you wanna come to the bed with me?
Blurange Blur:  I...you mean...



Ericka:  I mean there's no where else to sit and talk privately.  So many siblings and my mom nosing around, you know?



Blurange Blur:  Oh.  Right.  That's what I thought you meant.
Ericka:  Anyway, I really enjoy spending time with you, Blur.  I mean, people were already thrown off or intimidated by my being a genius, but now that I've aged up and also become evil...
Blurange Blur:  You're perfect!
Ericka:  You're just saying that.
Blurange Blur:  No, really.  You were already amazing before I learned your traits, but now...actually, now I think you're too good for me, so I sure hope you have low standards.
Ericka:  Haha!  Well, maybe I just have bed taste in men.
Blurange Blur:  I can only hope.
Pippin:  One, I repeat, one flirtatious joke later, they had a pink bar.  And then, the dynasty boy brought the evil genius girl over to his house.



Ericka:  Umm, why are there just fish tacos sitting here?
Blurange Blur:  Eh, my great-great-great-great-grandpa's food never goes bad, and eventually I'm supposed to have a daughter to continue the dynasty.
Ericka:  Already talking about having a child?  Moving a bit fast, aren't we?
Blurange Blur:  Yes.  Let's do!



Blurange Blur:  Please tell me that was the right thing to do.  I was trying to be smooth and suave...



Ericka:  I...oh my!  That was amazing!
Blurange Blur:  So...if I were to suggest doing it again...?



Ericka:  Easy there, handsy!
Blurange Blur:  Sorry!
Ericka:  I'm gonna let it slide this time, mister. 
Blurange Blur:  So, would you...maybe...wanna be my...girlfriend?



Ericka:  Oh my gawsh!  I thought you'd never get around to asking!
Blurange Blur:  You mean, you wanted me to ask all along?
Ericka:  Umm, why do you think I wasted all that time as a child stomping you at chess?  It certainly wasn't because of your great gaming skill.
Blurange Blur:  Ouch.  Selfie?
Ericka:  I thought you'd never ask!



Pippin:  Yeah, okay.  They're adorable.

Indeed that is one of Jade's descendants.  I have a super soft spot in my heart for Jade ever since she was the spouse of the original Gaivan Took who was a founder in one of my RDC attempts.  And yes, Jade was pollinated by Jeremy and later by Marcus Flex.
I was delighted when the promise ring issue didn't cause problems for Wade and Amelia, but there's no way I'm pushing my luck with Blurange Blur and Ericka!

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Purple, Blue, and a Wall?
« Reply #222 on: December 12, 2017, 06:22:39 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household where we find our young lovers in mid-conversation.
Ericka:  So, are you sure your family's okay with us being together?  I mean, weren't you supposed to end up with a cougar spouse instead of someone your age?



Blurange Blur:  Considering my mom's doing the second of your potential paintings for the "wall of wives," I'm pretty sure they're good with it.
Ericka:  Awww, that's so sweet.
Maya:  She'd be better if she were blue.
Blurange Blur:  Mom, please!
Maya:  ...just sayin'...
Pippin:  Meantime, Abernathy is struggling to deal with the loss of Jayden whom he never appreciated enough, so I decide to join him at work to help cheer him up.  His colleagues also joined in the efforts.



Abernathy:  ...no, seriously, after my dear, sweet Izumi and then poor, neglected Jayden, no other woman on this world will be able to win my affections.  I mean it.  I'm done with women.
Donny:  So...you're into dudes now?  Cause I...
Abernathy:  What?!?!  NO!!  I mean I'm not interested in romance anymore.
Donny:  Oh...never mind...
Gene (the alien):  No other woman on this world will be able to win your affections.  That's what you said?
Abernathy:  Yes, why?
Gene:  I am going to introduce you to a friend.
Abernathy:  Alright, waste your time then.
Pippin:  But wasting Gene's time would have to wait.  Our heir had to get in more time working on that mischief skill.
Blurange Blur:  Hey, Naomi!  Put 'er there!



Pippin:  And a short time after that, the Humor and Hijinks Festival came to town.
Blurange Blur:  So, Ericka, would you do me the honor of accompanying me to the festival to reek massive amounts of havoc?
Ericka:  I thought you'd never ask!



Ericka:  So, I think I'll enjoy this completely unsupervised area while you antagonize actual Sims.
Blurange Blur:  Divide and conquer?  Sounds like a plan!
Pippin:  And once outside, Blur ran into Anabelle (not Chantons' Anabelle).
Blurange Blur:  Hey, Anabelle, do you like slapstick comedy?
Anabelle:  Sure, why?



Blurange Blur:  Slapstick!!
Pippin:  Not how slapstick works.
Blurange Blur:  Now I'll go do that voodoo that I do so well!



Pippin:  Did you lust drop a Blazing Saddles reference?
Blurange Blur:  ...maybe...
Pippin:  And after some time outside, Blur rejoins his darling Ericka in the art gallery.



Mixologist:  What in the world happened in here?  The place is a mess and half my supplies are missing!
Ericka:  Oh.  I have no idea.  You know, that Jeanette Caliente likes digging in trash.  I'll bet it was her.
Mixologist:  Hmmm, that sounds pretty logical.
Blurange Blur:  You're amazing!
Ericka:  I know.
Pippin:  Meantime, back at home...



Wade:  Seriously, gramps, are you sure you can handle being alone?  I mean, you've basically been in some sort of relationship since before you were born.  I mean, great-grandma Rieko had picked out Izumi before you were even conceived.
Abernathy:  I'm sure.  No woman on this planet could ever be enough to change my mind.
Maya:  Umm, Abernathy?  Someone's here to see you...?
Abernathy:  Ugh, time to go disappoint Gene's friend.  Look, miss, I...hello!



April:  Greetings, Simling!  I am instructed to inform you that I am no woman from this planet.  I am uncertain what this designation implies.
Abernathy:  Yes.  Yes you're not.  I mean...hello!
April:  Does your odd stammering indicate that you are pleased with me?
Abernathy:  My...?  Oh.  Yes.  Sorry.  And yes.  I'm pleased with you.  Would you care to come inside?
April:  Is my movement to the interior designating preferential treatment?
Abernathy:  Yes.  Yes it is.
April:  Very well.  I accept your terms.
Abernathy:  And perhaps you would enjoy a chance to experience a makeover?



April:  I am unfamiliar with the term "makeover."
Abernathy:  It is considered a high compliment on my planet.
April:  Very well.



Abernathy:  Oh yes!
April:  Shall I take that as an indicator that you are pleased with how I have been over made?
Abernathy:  Oh yes!  Maybe we could spend some time chatting...over here on the bed?
April:  Chatting would be an acceptable experience.



April:  Does your level of physical contact indicate that you are desiring procreative activities?
Abernathy:  You are the most amazing sweet talker I've ever met!
April:  I am understanding that answer to be in the affirmative.
Abernathy:  You know me so well.
April:  Actually, it has been mere hours and I am unfamiliar with you in most ways.
Pippin:  Hmm, is it just me, or is she out-Abernathying you?
Abernahty:  She is, and I love it!



Pippin:  And I'll love it if we can have purple Tooks with her physique and your nose!
Aberathy:  And that may take us several tries, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
April:  I am comprehending your statement as being both sincere and sarcastic.  You are complicated.
Pippin:  Wow, she really does know you so well!
April:  Actually, there has not been a significant amount of increase in our level of acquaintance since my earlier statement indicating a lack of higher level familiarity.
Abernathy:  She's perfect!
Gaivan:  Pippin!  It's the...because she...and so I...



Gaivan:  and it's...that I did...and here!
Pippin:  Ah, someone's birthday.



Pippin:  Maya's birthday!  She's hitting elder status.
Maya:  I'm hoping my hair goes blue.



Pippin:  Unfortunately, she goes grey instead of blue, but she effectively plays out her role as elder spouse by ensuring we'll have room for Blur and Ericka to bring in generation 7 sooner rather than later.
Milo:  (sobs uncontrollably)
Maya:  I'm still blue, sweet orange.
Milo:  (sighs in relief)
Pippin:  And Milo and Maya aren't the only happy couple in differing age brackets.



Pippin:  Chantons and Anabelle decided to try for baby again to extend her life a little more.  I'm certain that was their only reason.
Chantons:  Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
                 How about love, love, love, love?

Pippin:  Okay, maybe it was that.  Meantime, the heir enjoys teen mood swings, rough experiences at school, and girly rose petal soaks.



Blurange Blur:  Just because I am the chief of mischief does not mean that I can't also be a delicate flower!
Pippin:  True stuff.  Another teen got some special treatment in the Took household as Marjorie finally got that makeover that Saanvi was berating Gaivan for not having already done.
Saanvi:  Perhaps I should have been berating his Watcher instead?
Pippin:  Marjorie is so getting that makeover!



Marjorie:  Umm, am I too...hippy for this?  Do I look okay?
Gaivan:  You...and looking...sweetie, because...really you're...and like her...that your mom...really!
Marjorie:  Aww, thanks, Dad!  That was the sweetest thing anyone's ever said to me!
Pippin:  Hmm, not sure if I missed sweetness in what he said or if no one's ever said anything sweet to her.
Saanvi:  No, it's that first one.
Pippin:  And a day or two later, it was ambrosia time for all four of our elders.



Pippin:  Ummm, all four?
Wade:  Oh, grandpa's a little busy right now.



April:  Does my having a mildly distended stomach due to the presence of a young hybrid child please you?
Abernathy:  Immensely!  Would you like to know how we celebrate such glorious news on my planet?
April:  I would be very pleased to learn such information.
Abernathy:  Excellent!!



April:  Interesting.  We celebrate by re-enacting the process which caused the impregnation.
Abernathy:  Indeed we do!
Pippin:  Alright, Romeo, just make sure you eat your ambrosia afterwards.
Abernathy:  Will do!
Pippin:  And as if the news of a potential purple Took isn't a happy enough note to end on...



Pippin:  Ericka and Blur!  And yes, she made the wall.



Pippin:  Things are going quite well as Blur has knocked out all of his whims, is half a level away from maxing mischief, and by association, completing the chief of mischief aspiration, has hit level 5 of charisma, already is an A student, has plenty of good friends in place including a unique BFF, and of course, he has Ericka.  Things are going well!

I'm so glad Blur picked Ericka! My Gen6 heir's spouse was close in age to him--I decided on the basis of the hawtness factor, lol.
It only means that more ambrosia will be needed--very doable. :D

April is one of the loveliest aliens I've ever seen! Crossing my fingers for a lilac Took!

Keep up the good work, Blur! Who among the Tooks got the Great Kisser trait? I can't remember if you've chosen Charisma as a unique or shared skill....

Yeah, Ericka was the second coming of Laura Rosa who I had been sad I couldn't pick, so it was a delightful surprise when she ended up being her mama's little clone child  :=)
No skills need to be unique in the IDC, so I've got a few Tooks who have maxed charisma now.
April is amazing!!  I've already got one Lilac Took boy and another child on the way  :=)
