I love what you did with your vet clinic! Really enjoyed the before-and-after shots, too!  What a difference!
That's the Tail's End lot, right?

Have I not been paying attention or is the Duke of Disco acquired a new clubbing outfit?
Love his Saturday Night Fever pose! *hums: oh, oh, oh, staying alive, staying alive
Wow, I hadn't realized that Chantons had seven daughters with Annabec! (I couldn't spot Raiven in that shot, though...)
By the way, Milo appears often in his TechGuru outfit but are all of your immortals still in their original careers?

Oh? Blur will be an old man soon? Could that mean what I think it means?
Tessie's making great progress with her requirements, too!

Oh, how I love this family! Ericka and Blur are so much fun and so cute.  Love the clinic update ^^
Thanks!  Must say, I have a super soft spot for Bluricka!
I'm glad you liked the clinic.  I was rather proud of it  :=)

Aww, thanks!  I think the difference is night and day for the clinic.  Umm, Tail's End sounds right.  Don't have the game loaded up to double check though.
The Duke of Disco is rocking his rarely-worn party attire in that shot.
Yeah, Chantons was quietly doing his best to lengthen Anabelle's life in this file.  I'm glad I got to have them together in the Took on Parenting game as they're a really fun and cute couple.
All of my immortals are still in their original careers.  They bring home serious money and the family are multi-millionaires  ;=)
I think it means what you think it means...

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Things Are Looking Grim
« Reply #272 on: January 22, 2018, 10:55:48 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household where Blur and Ericka are just adorable!



Ericka:  Hey there, hot stuff.
Blurange Blur:  Why, do you mean me, miss?
Ericka:  Nah, I was talking to Fluffy.
Fluffy:  mOO MOOO mooooMOOO moo
Pippin:  Fairly certain he sad thank you.  Anyway, Tessie still has some party requirements to knock out, so she decided to go with a spooky party next.



Tessie:  I'm a centurion from the Holy Gnoman Empire!!
Pippin:  (facepalm) Anyway, others also enjoyed their costumes.
Blurange Blur: (in a deep, gravely voice) I'm LlamaMan.



Ericka:  And I'm gorgeous!
Blurange Blur: (in a deep, gravely voice) And I'm powerless against your fairy charms.
Ericka:  Yeah, it's my superpower.
Pippin:  Meantime, the twins took care of the pumpkin carving.



Wade:  I thought you were going to be Darth Vader.
Abernathy:  I thought you were going to be Darth Vader!
Pippin:  Well, this is awkward.  Look at them both mauling those pumpkins.
Wade and Abernathy:  Ugh, that pun's so bad!



Leticia:  Do you ever wonder about...
Tessie:  About how gnomes got to be so awesome?!?!?
Leticia:  No...
Tessie:  Then no.  I don't.
Leticia:  ...k...?
Pippin:  And the party ended up getting a gold medal!



Ericka:  A gold medal and a dance party!
Pippin:  Why isn't Blur here for the dance party?
Ericka:  Oh, he's right over there...



Blurange Blur:  (in a deep, gravely voice) LlamaMan has a permit to tote these guns around.
Ericka:  Yeah, he's a dork, but he's my dork.
Pippin:  And you can keep him.  How about another party?
Tessie:  Woot!!



Pippin:  And we're taking care of those eating requirements.
Blurange Blur:  So, I hear LlamaMan came by the house and had incredibly huge muscles.
Chantons:  Na na na na
                 Na na na na
                 Na na na na
                 Na na na na
                 LlamaMan!

Pippin:  And Abernathy takes care of the flirting requirements.



Pippin:  Then he takes the now-elder April in for some "alone time," after which...



Abernathy:  (snore)
April:  I believe my time of vitality has reached its climax.
Pippin:  Seriously, Abernathy?  First you sleep through Jayden passing and now this?



Ericka:  Oh, poor April!  And Tessie, I'm so sorry your party is ruined!
Tessie:  Ruined?  It just got super exciting!  And who invited the handsome guy with no face?



Tessie:  Yo, senpei!  I got you a flower!  It has thorns!
Grim:  I...well, hello there!  I mean, hey girl.  Umm...yo!
Pippin:  (facepalm) Of course.  I mean, why wouldn't Grim be the only guy who catches her interest?
Grim:  You wanna go to...a place...that isn't here...?
Pippin:  You're so slick.
Tessie:  Let's go to the llama game place!
Grim:  Umm, okay?



Grim:  Wow, that's quite an outfit.  Your hat's very...large.
Tessie:  Aww, you're so sweet!  You're no gnome, but you're not entirely ungome-like.
Grim:  Umm, thanks?
Tessie:  "Grim" has several of the same letters as "gnome."
Grim:  ...just the "g" and "m" actually...
Tessie:  Exactly!  You get me, Grim.  you really get me.



Pippin:  (sigh) Cue the Grim and Tessie (Gressie?) unofficial dating montage.



Pippin:  Wait, Grim, did you actually reap someone while you two were on a date?
Grim:  Hey, I gotta impress my girl!
Tessie:  You're so good at your job, gnomeycakes!
Pippin:  Gnomeycakes?
Grim:  That's her nickname for me.  I'm...I'm not really sure how I feel about it.
Pippin:  Anyway, we continue making effective usage of the Took Pet Medicine clinic.



Milo:  So, I think we need to take your cat to the surgery station.
Pet Owner:  Oh no, I hope she'll be okay!



Milo:  Excellent!  Porcelain cats are immune to Rudolph-Nose Disease.  That'll be eleventy billion simoleans.
Pet Owner:  I...uh...she...
Pippin:  And Wade quietly mops up the messes in the background.  Wade's background maintenance work has really helped the family thrive.  You're the real MYP, Wade.
Wade:  Thanks, it's really nice that...
Pippin:  Anyway, Tessie throws another party.
Wade:  (sigh)



Pippin:  And it helps put the 6th immortal in place.



Tessie:  Haha!  Dad's old now!
Tiffani:  Yeah he is.  So anyway, tell me more about you and Grim!
Pippin:  And with a gold medal birthday party in the books, it's dance party time!



Pippin:  Not long after that, utter terror struck.



Gaivan:  I...the stove was...and now I can't...
Pippin:  Yep.  Mid-making the ambrosia.  He wouldn't resume it.  I tried several different methods to fix the problem.  Nope.  No ambrosia, no immortals, no hall of fame...
Ericka:  Are you hyperventilating?
Pippin:  MAYBE!!!
Ericka:  Could he make ambrosia at the clinic?
Pippin:  Could he make...could he?



Pippin:  YES!!!  I mean, yes.  Yes he can.  Problem solved.  And speaking of cooking things at the clinic...



Pippin:  Gaivan made a cake for Ericka's birthday.  I mean, we could have just used the one he keeps in his inventory, but he can cook again!!
Ericka:  Can we maybe focus more on my birthday and less on the stove?
Pippin:  Oh.  Sorry.  Anyway, our last house spouse...



Pippin:  is now an elder.
Blurange Blur:  The most beautiful elder I've ever seen!
Ericka:  That is the correct response, husband.
Blurange Blur:  Yep!  I studied for this quiz!
Pippin:  And with an ambrosia crisis averted, two birthdays, and most of our party requirements met, things are going quite well for the Tooks!

I laughed so hard throughout this update that my tummy hurts.

Loved the Darth twins throwing shade at each other. Spooky Parties are the best!
Blur really got into his Llamaman iidentity, haha.
I remember trying to give all my IDC immortals the Llaman costume in different colors for some silliness but my game crashed as soon as I left CAS.

By the way, have you been feeding ambrosia to Fluffy as well? Longest-living cowplant I've ever seen!!!

My favorite line has to be Grim's right after Tessie first hits on him.
Quote
Grim:  I...well, hello there!  I mean, hey girl.  Umm...yo!
Wait, did those two really go out on a date? Or was Tessie just stalking him? Lol.

Congrats on the many achievements in this update!
Rest in peace, April! You were one hawt elder!
And most of all, hallelujah that Gaivan can cook ambrosia again!

I have laughed and cried and totally enjoyed this Dynasty. I might not comment all the time (usually as it takes me so long to read, and then I refresh and you've updated again!!) but please know that I'm enjoying this so much!

Yeah, I so love Grim and Tessie together.
Why, oh why, did the glitch have to be that ambrosia couldn't be made at the Took mansion instead of being that all of the romantic interactions opened up for Tessie and Grim  ;=)
Yeah, I'm not looking forward to losing Ericka.  I might be going out of my way to write her into the narrative in her remaining updates.

Not sure if there is actually a lifespan for cowplants.  My Sims feed, play with, and pet Fluffy on a daily basis and/or hire a gardener if they're going to be at the clinic for a day or more.
Grim as the non-slick tagalong beau of Tessie just makes me smile  :=)
Spooky parties have rapidly become my favorite...possibly starting when I saw Amelia in her fairy costume.  So lovely!!
Yeah, April aged so well!!  Sadly, none of her offspring seem to have taken after her physique.  Then again, there are still three Abernathy/April daughters in the child lifestage, so we'll see how those ones age up  ;=)

This is so much fun!
Aww, thanks!  I'm so glad you're enjoying it!

Such a joy to know how much you're enjoying it.  It's definitely a fun dynasty family for me to play and write, so I'm glad that joy is just as present on the reader side  :=)

The Took Immortal Dynasty, The Unbearable Dance Party
« Reply #278 on: February 04, 2018, 12:38:37 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household where no one is actually at home.



Wade:  Yes!  I win!!
Blurange Blur:  Umm, just pulling out a piece successfully doesn't mean you win...
Wade:  Oh.  Umm, guess I never really played games other than chess as a kid since I was too busy...umm...doing the...uhh...
Abernathy:  He was lining up the conquests for his serial romantic aspiration.
Wade:  Dude!  That makes me sound so callous!
Blurange Blur:  Gurl, please!  Grandpa Abernathy has done enough to complete the serial romantic aspiration twice at least!
Abernathy:  It's true.
Pippin:  Yep.  I'm afraid to even activate that aspiration to gain a few points since it should autocomplete just on principle.



Ericka:  Umm, Pippin?  Aspirations do not autocomplete on principle.
Tessie:  My school has a principal!
Ericka:  Sweetie?  We've talked about this.  You're an adult now.  You need to stop showing up for school.
Tessie:  But...but...art class!
Pippin:  Meantime, Gaivan continues to be the ambrosia slave as I fully intend to mass produce way too much so we never have to go into panic mode over the can't-make-ambrosia glitch again!



Gaivan:  ...and for this batch, I'm adding more cilantro as it simply bursts on the palette.
Pippin:  He's so eloquent when it's food.
Saanvi:  Pippin?  Are you seriously keeping my hubby shackled to the stove all the time?  Is that why I never get to see him?
Pippin:  Psh, no!  He also gets to work at the clinic.



Gaivan:  It's that...and because...when the cat...having this is...
Patient:  Umm, he's a dog...
Gaivan:  Yes, that...and we can...because you aren't...for that...
Patient:  ...do you have any other vets I could see?
Pippin:  Yep, the clinic's doing well and rocking a 4 1/2 star rating.
Abernathy:  So, the romance festival is in town?
Pippin:  I thought you'd never love again?
Abernathy:  Umm, I was suggesting that since Tessie needs to find a baby daddy?
Pippin:  Oh.  Good call.
Abernathy:  I'd better go along to chaperone.
Pippin:  Also good call.



Abernathy:  Well, hello!  Aren't you just a vision?
Yasmin:  Why, Abernathy, are you flirting with me?
Abernathy:  That depends, is it working?



Abernathy:  Howdy, hot stuff. 
Izumi:  Howdy yourself!
Abernathy:  So that's your husband with the cat ears? 
Izumi:  Yep.  That's my guy!
Abernathy:  And are you two happily married?
Her Guy:  HEY!!
Pippin:  (facepalm) Apparently Abernathy's recovered from his losses.  Ah well, we will need friend options for gen 8.  Carry on, Abernathy.  Meantime, Tessie meets the new Romance Guru.



Tessie:  Hi, mystic lady!
Romance Guru:  It's actually, "romance guru," thank you.
Tessie:  Romance guru you're welcome!
Romance Guru:  I see that love will come your way when you least expect it.
Tessie:  Love?  Who's that?  I know Death.  He's so handsome!
Romance Guru: ...
Pippin:  Look, Tessie, other people.  You should go talk to them.
Tessie:  Okay!
Romance Guru:  ...



Random Guy:  Hello, pretty lady!
Tessie:  He should go move into a house in the Lee dynasty.
Pippin:  You know, I'll bet Oshizu would love that, but please stop breaking the 4th wall.
Tessie:  Teehee!  Ooooo, look!!



Tessie:  Hey there!
Ishaan:  Well, hello, aren't you just...
Tessie:  Excuse me, I was talking to your mustache?
Ishaan:  You were...
Tessie:  Don't interrupt, please.  Anyway, mustache, what brings you to the festival?
Mustache:  ...
Tessie:  Hahaha!  Good one!
Pippin:  Yes.  That's what normal behavior looks like.  And after we finish traumatizing people at the festival, we head back to the clinic.



Pippin:  And look, I give Gaivan a whole hour of fishing before I send him back to make more ambrosia.
Ericka:  Wow.  That Watcher of the Year award is in the bag.
Pippin:  Thank you, Ericka!
Ericka:  I was being sarcastic.
Pippin:  Too late!!  I'm keeping that compliment!  It's mine now!  Besides, I know how to get great scenery shots.



Pippin:  Watcher.  Of.  The.  Year!
Ericka:  That's a screenshot.  It does not make you good at your job.
Pippin:  I'm already not listening.  Watcher, not Listener.
Ericka:  (sigh) Fine, let's see how things are going at the clinic.



Antonia:  I'm so worried about my poor kitty!
Abernathy:  Fear not, your kitty looks just fine.  You, on the other hand, look just beautiful.
Antonia:  Wha...oh!   You flatterer!  I see, you're just being complimentary to get me to stop worrying.
Pippin:  Sure that's what he's doing.  Wait, is that a 5 star rating?



Abernathy:  Look how perfect we look together.
Antonia:  Yep, that is a good selfie.
Abernathy:  If our genes were mixed, I'll bet the result would be just lovely!
Antonia:  If only such science existed.  Well, time to go!
Pippin:  Wow.  She was rather immune to your charms.
Abernathy:  ...she will be mine.
Pippin:  Why did you just morph into a cliché love-stricken movie villain?  Anyway, Tessie gets invited out by her "cousin" Tiffani (who is one of Chantons and Annabelle's daughters).



Tiffani:  Hey, I'm glad you agreed to come to bear night!
Pippin:  I'm glad Ericka clarified for her that it wasn't "bare" night.  She almost showed up in the buff.
Tiffani:  ...oh...
Tessie:  Woot!  Bear dance party!!



Pippin:  Yep.  Bear dance party.  That happened.  Tessie even brought a bear home.



Tessie:  You know, you were much cooler when you were a bear.



Aubrie:  BwaBWaBwaBWaBwa!!!
Tessie:  HAHAHAHA!  Never mind, you're awesome!  Pippin, if Grim can't be my babydaddy, can I have Aubrie be that?
Aubrie:  Wait, what now?
Pippin:  Umm, that's not how that works, Tessie.  Pretty sure this is a talk Ericka should have had with you a long while ago.
Tessie:  Wait a minute, did you...



Tessie:  just paint a gnome?!?!?
Aubrie:  Of course!  Gnomes are awesome!
Tessie:  I just found my unique bestie!!
Pippin:  Yes, not baby daddy, but unique bestie.  I agree with this decision.  And as we're heading towards the end of our update, something very important was happening in the museum.



Chantons:  Lonely
               I am so lonely
               I have nobody
               To call my own

Pippin:  Okay, it took a little while to happen, but eventually...



Pippin:  Blur officially became our 6th immortal!
Blurange Blur:  Wait, when you guys said you made this cake from fish and flowers, I thought you were just kidding...
Wade:  Yeah, I think we all go through that same moment of shock.
Blurange Blur:  I don't think I want to eat this...
Ericka:  Honey?
Blurange Blur:  (sigh)  I'm going to eat this.
Pippin:  Thank you, Ericka!  And with our 6th immortal in place and Tessie simply needing a successful date and two more promotions to complete her requirements other than elderhood, the Took household is in great shape!

Well, no wonder Wade is the only male Took who refrains from hanky-panky as a widower!
I'd completely forgotten that he'd done the Serial Romantic aspiration. I'd still like to see more of him. :D

Got a good laugh at Tessie's comment that the young Romance Festival dude should move into a house for the Lees!
What's the matter, Tessie? He wasn't nosy enough for you?  ;D

I have a question about the screenshot of the Tooks fishing at night from the dock off to the side of Salty Paws Saloon, where the four Took males are "facing the camera."
Three Tooks (Wade, Gaivan, and Abernathy) are looking slim and healthy.
On the other hand, Blur (that's Blur in the eSport Gamer outfit, right?) is looking rather lumpy. Or is that just his jacket?

Another lovely update, Pippin. Congrats on your sixth immortal!

Bwahaha, loved the bear dance party.  Also cracked up with Tessie wanting Aubrie as her baby daddy :P  If only the rules allowed that >.< I have a rotational game where I've played around a bit with a bunch of things like that lol to have some fun.

I agree with Tessie about the young man moving into some homes for oshizu! hehehehe If only this game would actually cooperate when we want it to XD

Tessie has excellent taste. I, too, am in love with Ishaan's moustache. It's majestic. His nose ain't bad, either. :)

Congrats to Blur, and to you, Pippin, for winning Watcher of the Year! Loving this story, and I'm so glad I caught back up before you're (knock on wood) done! Hooray for the Tooks!

Blur looks extra pudgy in his career outfit.  Of course, I tend to not change any of them out of their work attire on any sort of regular basis other than Chantons.  That, however, is partly prompted by the fact that when I'm zoomed out he and Wade look a lot alike unless he's wearing his hat.
Yeah, the Romance Festival guy just didn't strike me as a proper fit for Tessie.  Not a nose thing, just didn't seem like he fit beside her.  Then again, only Grim can really fill that spot  ;=)
Wade had his one perfect love in the form of Amelia and that completely moved him away from any sort of hanky-panky shenanigans in my mind.  Similarly, Chantons has never had any romantic interests beyond Annabelle (and Robyn, of course).

Bwahaha, loved the bear dance party.  Also cracked up with Tessie wanting Aubrie as her baby daddy :P  If only the rules allowed that >.< I have a rotational game where I've played around a bit with a bunch of things like that lol to have some fun.

Yeah, Ericka is amazing and I think I will be crushed when I lose her  :=(
I often just ignore the invites to theme nights, but Bear Night seemed like a perfect Tessie thing!

Tessie has excellent taste. I, too, am in love with Ishaan's moustache. It's majestic. His nose ain't bad, either. :)

Ishaan's mustache is amazing.  He, however, is mean and unflirty.  I love how much attention the noses are getting as people screen potential baby daddies  :=)
I'm glad to see you're back on the forum again!  I've missed you!

Getting very close here. Hoping the Tooks will be just as successfull to the end.
Thanks for the positive vibes and well-wishing  :=)  I will certainly do my best to ensure I can get this fantastic family into the HoF!

Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household where we'll finally get to see Tessie go on her gold medal date!



Tessie:  Oh, Gnomeycakes, you take me to all the coolest places!  What did you sat the name of this place was again?
Grim:  Death Valley.
Pippin:  Yeah, they go out.  A lot.  But she can't have her official date, and therefore not a gold medal one, with Grim.  But she wasn't the only one thinking about having date night.
Abernathy:  So, Antonia, I feel there's real electricity between us.



Antonia:  Oh my goodness!  We could get electrocuted and die!!  I thought I'd seen Grim on my way in!
Abernathy:  What?  Grim?  Oh, Grim.  Yes.  He's just dating my...niece.
Antonia:  Oh.
Abernathy:  Anyway, you don't seem to be picking up on subtle clues.  Do you want to woohoo?
Antonia:  Oh, sure!
Pippin:  ...what...?
Abernathy:  Let's go to the flirty aura room.  And this...



Abernathy:  is for you.
Antonia:  Ow!  It has thorns!
Abernathy:  So sorry.  I'll make it up to you with a makeover.
Antonia:  Deal!



Abernathy:  Wow, you look amazing!
Antonia:  I know, right?  I should go out and find a hot young boyfriend now!
Abernathy:  Oh...I...
Antonia:  I'm just jokin', c'mon!



Pippin:  She's lovely!  She so deserves someone better than you, Abernathy.
Abernathy:  That's probably very true.
Pippin:  Anyway, Tessie finally heads out for her gold medal date!



Tessie:  Hey, how's my favorite mustache?
Ishaan:  Oh, you flatter...
Tessie:  Talking to the mustache, mouthy!  C'mon, mustache!  Let's go sit and chat!



Mustache:  ...
Tessie:  Oh, my!  That's so flattering, mustache.  You're rather attractive yourself.



Ishaan:  It's so cute how you flirt while acting like you're talking to my mus...
Tessie:  MOVE YOUR HAND!!  I CAN'T SEE THE MUSTACHE!!!
Ishaan:  (moves hand)
Tessie:  Oh!  Gold medal!  You can leave now.



Ishaan:  I get it.  She's playing hard to get.  That's so cute.  I'll just play along and start to leave.  She'll call me back.
Tessie:  (texts Grim)
Ishaan:  Any minute now.
Tessie:  (flirty texts Grim)
Ishaan:  Yep.  Any minute.  She'll call me back to her side.
Tessie:  (leaves to meet Grim)
Ishaan:  ...any minute she'll text me to meet her somewhere...



Blurange Blur:  I'm so cool!!
Pippin:  He's actually not too bad now.
Ericka:  He's amazing!!  Of course, it's amazing by association with his amazing wife, but still amazing.
Pippin:  Well said.  Anyway, Blur wasn't the only guitarist who'd be significant as Tessie went out with Grim to enjoy a performance at...some lounge...or something...



Grim:  Hey, gorgeous!
Tessie:  Hey, gnomeycakes!  So, who's performing?
Grim:  Well, the guy who was supposed to go on is one of my favorite local artists, but he had to cancel on short notice, so some other guy volunteered to fill in.
Tessie:  Oh, that sounds good!  Let's go listen!
Grim:   ...k?  Wait, was that guy staring at you as he walked past?



Arun:  Stupid Grim, always being such a lady killer.  I mean, he's literally a lady killer.  How can I compete with that?
Pippin:  Anyway, they go inside to discover that the guest guitarist is...



Pippin:  Ishaan.
Ishaan:  I found her!  Now I'll just be cool and play guitar and she'll leave that guy and come running into my arms any minute now.
Tessie:  Gnomeycakes, you're the only guy for me!
Grim:  Aww, you're the best!
Tessie:  It's true!
Ishaan:  Any minute now.
Pippin:  And as if dating, breaking hearts, and randomly changing her outfit wasn't enough, Tessie also took the family out to the retail district.



Tessie:  Oh my GAWSH!!  They sell things here!!  Things you can buy!!
Ericka:  Yes, sweetie.  That is how stores work!  Good job!
Tessie:  Thanks, mom!  Oh, who's this?



Random Guy:  Umm, that's a mannequin?
Tessie:  Hi, Manny Kin!  Nice ta meetcha!  Wanna dance



Pippin:  She's such a Took.
Ericka:  She is the dancing queen!
Pippin:  Yeah.  She is.
Ericka:  That's my girl!
Pippin:  And Tessie went home and commemorated her many successes...or at least random experiences...in the form of a painting.



Tessie:  It's a gnome!!
Pippin:  (sigh) Of course it is.  Anyway, Tessie has accomplished everything other than maxing out her career and hitting elderhood and now we all sit around and dread the day that we lose Ericka.
Ericka:  Hush, Pippin!  He'll hear you!
Blurange Blur:  (sobs) Too late (openly weeps)
