CPYL Erina's nose is great, but I love Jacqueline's. Just Erina's requirements to go -- Woot! What are you going to do when Erina becomes an immortal (other than the Sharebears and your other story, that is)?

Bwahahaha, love how Izumi is desperate to be the favorite and she does dishes to try to get there XD  Hehehe, love Tessie being called Mama Took.  For some reason, just fits her XD Not sure why.  Omw, I can't believe Captain Princess Lady Erina is a YA now!

Captain Princess Lady Erina's book titles just kill me. She's so clever! And such a good manager. She knows just how to motivate her crew. With favoritism! She's my favorite. I will do her dishes any day.
Happy birthdays to both of the Took ladies! Bring on that immortality! It's getting close!
Also really love CPL Erina's rustic writing shack. Nice to have some peace and quiet sometimes. And nice to have a change of scene after seven generations.

I catch up just in time to see Tessie age up. I'm so glad we got another Tess! She'll never take the place of my Tess, but she was a good second

Cplerina is such an interesting Gen 8 that I can't wait to see what happens next.

Oh and when Tessie aged up to teen, did anyone notice how much she looked like Lillith Valtore in the one shot?!?

Love this family, Pip and I'm holding thumbs, toes and everything in between for your first IDC win!!

Yay! Tessie has her last birthday ever and CPL Erina is now ready for her final stage of requirements, well, except for her elder birthday.
Not much longer, Pippin! The Tooks are ready for you to take them where they belong!  ;)
Good for Izumi! Her status as BFF will protect her from those ole geezers, lol!

By the way, brilliant move befriending the vampire! Never worry about your good friend dying early again!
Yep, the Tooks are painfully close!  I can't wait to get them there, but slow and steady wins the race.
Yeah, Izumi is lovely, but she can't be Abernathy's next target.  Ah well, I'm sure he'll manage to get by somehow  ;=)

CPYL Erina's nose is great, but I love Jacqueline's. Just Erina's requirements to go -- Woot! What are you going to do when Erina becomes an immortal (other than the Sharebears and your other story, that is)?
Jaq does have an awesome nose!  I think she and Alondra both ended up being uniquely lovely...and shockingly non-identical.
When I finish this, I just might focus only on my Sharebears for a while, though I do have an itching desire to try an RDC again  ;=)

Bwahahaha, love how Izumi is desperate to be the favorite and she does dishes to try to get there XD  Hehehe, love Tessie being called Mama Took.  For some reason, just fits her XD Not sure why.  Omw, I can't believe Captain Princess Lady Erina is a YA now!
Yeah, I thought it would be a delightful role for Izumi to take on.  I mena, Krista established herself as the favorite during childhood, but she can't be the unique BFF since she already has friend status simply from being a family member.  Therefore, it seemed to make sense that Izumi, while being the only option for BFF from the crew, would be in a prime position for jealousy  ;=)

Captain Princess Lady Erina's book titles just kill me. She's so clever! And such a good manager. She knows just how to motivate her crew. With favoritism! She's my favorite. I will do her dishes any day.

Yeah, the vet clinic, retail store, and writing shack have all been nice ways to bring a change of scenery for me as well as the readers.
CPLE is amazing!  I'm rather enjoying having her as my gen 7 heir.  Yes, writing is a boring skill to level up, but the book titles make it more enjoyable  ;=)

So glad you're back, my darling my dear!  I had determined I'd have a Tessie in this specifically because of how much you'd enjoyed the original Tessie.  Of course, they're definitely different characters, but I think this Tessie is quite delightful and incredibly lovely!
I'm certainly hoping this fam makes it into the IDC.  As long as I don't make any silly mistakes, they should easily get there.  Fingers crossed!

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Name Are Over-rated, Right?
« Reply #330 on: April 27, 2018, 02:50:22 PM »
Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household where...



Pippin:  not much exciting is happening.
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Are you kidding me?!?!?  All sorts of excitement is happening!  Her Captain Princess Ladyship just managed to defeat and entire herd of trolls...
Pippin:  Herd of trolls?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Of course I've heard of trolls, now stop interrupting.  Anyway, her Captain Princess Ladyship defeated an entire herd of trolls at chess and won the fabled Ruby of Slypers from them which she and her three companions are going to use to defeat the Nasty Necromancer of the North so that Captain Princess Lady Erina can return home!
Pippin:  Wait, I think that morphed into the Wizard of Oz.  Are her companions a scarecrow, a lion, and a tin woodsman?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  What?  Good heavens, Pippin, those are ridiculous choices for companions.  Seriously?  You have no business trying to write things.
Pippin:  (watches the fourth wall waver precariously as it's in danger of being broken)
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Anyway, I think I'm at a pretty good stopping point.  Dance party time, crew!



Pippin:  Yep.  With not much left to do beyond Captain Princess Lady finishing the writing aspiration, maxing two more skills, and getting her parties finished, there might be a whole lot of dance parties happening to fill the time.





Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Well, dancing as a group is a great chance for my crew to practice following my lead.
Krista:  Aye, cap'n!
Izumi:  Yes.  Me too.  I too.  Aye too!  Can I be your favorite now?  Please?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  ...no.  I already have a favorite.



Krista:  Requesting permission to mic drop, cap'n?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Granted.
Krista:  Krista out.  Boom!  Mic drop!
Izumi:  (sigh)
Pippin:  And while Captain Princess Lady Erina was doing captainy things, Abernathy was doing...



Pippin:  Abernathy things.  Abernasty things, maybe?
Abernathy:  Sounds about right.
Pippin:  Meantime, Chantons spent some time with Rieko (his third wife) and kids.



Pippin:  Aww, what a cute little toddler!



Pippin:  And here's Rieko with their eldest.  She has a name.  I forget it.
Rieko:  Nice, Pippin.



Pippin:  And their twins play on the space ship playset with good old uncle Milo!
Girl Twin:  Actually, I'm just going to try to talking him into giving me a makeover so I can lose the Mickey Mouse hairdo.
Boy Twin:  Good call, sis!
Pippin:  And to help pass the time, we travel with Abernathy to work where he encounters...



Pippin:  Her!
Her:  I have a name, you know.
Pippin:  Psh, you're too lovely to need a name.
Abernathy:  Well, hello there!



Her:  Hi.  Shouldn't you actually be doing work?
Abernathy:  I'm kind of the boss, you know.  Speaking of, you've been working too hard, so I came to offer you some R & R.
Her:  R & R?
Abernathy:  Yep!  Romance and...



Abernathy:  ...kissing...with a...silent "R" at the beginning...
Her:  Wow.  Are you always this smooth?
Abernathy:  Why yes I am, hot stuff!
Her:  ...you know I was being sarcastic, right?
Abernathy:   ...what?  Anyway, wanna go on a date?
Her:  Eh, it's better than being forgotten as a background character.
Pippin:  And so they head to that wonderfully romantic location...



Pippin:  the vet clinic?
Abernathy:  So, I own this place, you know?
Her:  It's so cute how you think your wealth and status are actually impressive.
Abernathy:  Yeah, they're really...what?
Her:  Eh, you're cute, so it's fine.  Oh look!  A bush with heart-shaped leaves.  After you...



Pippin:  So, that's happening, and hopefully we can ensure we have her genes around for a long, long time.
Wade:  You remember we're on the final generation, right?
Pippin:  ...and so, we embark on the quest to genetically engineer a potential founder for the next dynasty...?
Wade:  Yeah, that works.



Captain Princess Lady  Erina:  It's great that we have a computer desk here so I can continue chronicalling the true life adventures of Captain Princess Lady Erina while Aber-nasty is scootily-pooping!
Pippin:  Hey, watch your language, young lady!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Ahem?
Pippin:  Young captain princess lady?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Better.
Pippin:  Of course, the woohoo bush and the computer were not the only reasons to come here...



Her:  Mwha!  Have fun remaining immortal.  I'm going to go off and swell up like a balloon from my pregnancy now.
Abernathy:  Wow, she's amazing!
Pippin:  No, her name isn't "she," it's "Her."
Her:  No it isn't!
Pippin:  But the Tooks aren't the only immortals.  Saanvi is...



Pippin:  immortally holding a grudge because that barista flirted with Gaivan.  Yep.  He can have one or two successful romantic socials, and then we get this.
Gaivan:  But...and she was...I didn't really...because you and...
Saanvi:  Psh, I'm a vampire!  I'm immortal!  A short fit of jealousy is a very relative term with me.
Pippin:  Yeah, I guess that makes a weird sort of sense...but since we're on the subject of immortal ladies...



Pippin:  Teagan Rouse, who was pollinated during gen 2 and whose daughter, McKinley, was a spouse option for Chantons, is still alive and kicking...and lovely.



Pippin:  Ooooooo, Her is gonna be so mad!  You know Her has the mean trait, right?
Abernathy:  (gulp)  Hopefully, Her didn't see...



Abernathy:  Nope!  I don't think Her saw us.
Teagan:   You don't think who saw us?!?!?
Abernahty:  Ummm, my great-great-great-great-great-great grand-daughter!  Her!  I don't want to traumatize her or anything, you know?
Teagan:  Awww, that's so sweet!
Pippin:  Yeah.  Sweet.
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Dance party time!



Krista:  Woot!  You're the best, cap'n!
Izumi:  I think you're the best too!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Thanks, Krista!
Izumi:  (muttering) Notice me, senpei!



Pippin:  And as they're dancing, Ericka shows up, so of course, Blur comes joins the crew.



Ericka:  You're doing a great job, Captain Princess Lady sweetie!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Thanks, grams!
Pippin:  And of course, grams is correct.  The going may be slow and boring, but it's definitely going well.

What a lucky coincidence that Abernathy would go to work and meet Her, who is (imho) one of the prettiest sims in your IDC (which is saying a lot!)
Very odd about that Teagan Rouse lady! She's not a busker statue or anything like that, is she?
So what's left for CPL Erina now--the career and friendship maintenance?

Haha, poor Gaivan and his eternally jealous wife Saanvi!

Her is amazing!  No idea why the game held off on randomly spawning her until now.  What a great dynasty spouse she might have been.
And I have no idea what the deal is with Teagan Rouse.  She was a mixologist.  No other mixologists have randomly turned immortal on me. 

um, yeah, okay. *backs out of the room*

Yeah, my Tooks live in their own weird mixture of craziness  ;=)

Yeah, Abernasty just seemed accurate somehow  ;=)  And yes, Her is gorgeous!
So glad the fourth wall comment was enjoyable for you.  Being the writer for the writer just seemed to open up the lovely fourth wall commentary  ;=)

Yeah, kind of have that soft spot for my redheaded beauties.
I know Tessie's not Tessa, but she hearkens back nicely to that same level of insanity  :=)

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Finding Founders
« Reply #337 on: May 20, 2018, 07:39:16 PM »
Pippin:  In case you were wondering how long an immortal can hold a grudge...



Gaivan:  So we...and I...it wasn't...she just...but you and...because love...and always...
Saanvi:  I know.  You're forgiven.



Pippin:  Forgiven?  But he didn't...
Saanvi:  Hush, Pippin.
Pippin:  ...k...meantime, Captain Princess Lady Erina works on maxing vampire lore.



Captain Princess Lady Erina:   Actually, I'm researching for my next novel:  Captain Princess Lady Erina and the Vampiric Vikings of Villainous Valley.
Pippin:  Wow.  You have truly mastered alliteration!  Anyway, the Captain Princess Lady heads to her writing retreat and calls the crew.



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hi, favorite!  You too, Izumi.
Krista:  Hi, cap'n!
Izumi:  (sigh)



Krista:  So, Pippin, once this dynasty ends, you might need a founder for what you do next, right?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Ooo, he should pick you, Krista!
Krista:  Brilliant suggestion, cap'n!
Pippin:  That was slick.  However, Krista may have some serious competition.



Her:  Hey, Abernasty.  I brought my pregnant belly around so you can gush about how gorgeous I am.



Abernathy:  You're so amazing!  Our baby will be so beautiful and should totally be the founder of the next dynasty!
Her:  True stuff!  Especially that part about me being amazing.
Pippin:  And I looked into it and Her name is actually...
Her:  No.  I think I like just being Her.  I am an entity unto myself.  That totally works for me.



Pippin:  He so totally doesn't deserve you.
Her:  It's true.
Abernathy:  So true!
Pippin:  Meantime...



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Gotta work on that video game skill!
Izumi:  If I just keep standing here, senpei will notice me!
Kori:  Umm, don't think she will...
Izumi:  Notice me, senpei.  Notice me!
Pippin:  And while that was happening...



Wishing Well:  Well, hello there, Milo!
Milo:  Hey, I was thinking, if Abernathy and Her can have a shot at bringing in the next founder, maybe I could...
Wishing Well:  Say no more!



Milo:  ...ummm, so...I've been standing here for half an hour now, so I think I need to say something.
Wishing Well:  Oh, sorry.  Look behind you.



Milo:  Oh...hi.  I'm Milo.
Nobuya:  I'm Nobuya!
Milo:  No...blahblah?
Nobuya:  Close enough!  So, is this the real world?  I've just been an abstract idea in the well this whole time!
Milo:  ...really?
Wishing Well:  Yeah, nobody ever wished for a girlfriend from me before, so she's been hanging out as an idea this whole time.
Milo:  ...k...
Nobuya:  Do we do the kissing now?!?!?
Milo:  Umm, makeover first.  Pretty sure that's proper protocol.
Wishing Well:  That is fairly standard.



Nobuya:  Oooo, is there a magical kingdom in here?
Milo:  A closet, but, yeah, pretty much.



Nobuya:  Woot!  I look different!
Milo:  So, I think we can have that kiss now.



Pippin:  And I think it's about time for Captain Princess Lady Erina to get a party in the books.
Milo:  Okay.  We'll just have our own party.



Nobuya:  Party!
Pippin:  And in the family-friendly party area...



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hey, not-favorite, don't feel bad.  It's not that bad.  At least you are part of my crew and you get to be my unique bestie.
Izumi:  Well, unique bestie is kind of better than favorite in a way right?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Psh, no!  Of course not.  How ridiculous!



Tessie:  Pumpkin.  Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin!!
Pippin:  ...okay.



Blurange Blur:  Wooooooot!  Dance party!!
Pippin:  Yep.  The party was a success and therefore must be suitably celebrated.  Speaking of celebrating...



Nobuya:  Whoa, sorry, stranger, but I'm already with Milo.
Milo:  It's me, Milo.
Nobuya:  No, his face looks different.
Milo:  What?  Oh!  Its just a mask.
Nobuya:  Exactly!  Milo doesn't wear a mask, so you're obviously not him.
Milo:  ...uh...
Pippin:  Anyway, we have several great candidates for a future founder, but in the meantime, we have some wonderful progress being made in completing this dynasty.  HoF, here we come!

That opening gambit with Gaivan and Saanvi!
Gaivan's such a sweetheart--he does seem to be the kind of sim who'd apologize even if weren't in the wrong just to get past Saanvi's ego, lol.
Saanvi, girl, count your blessings!

Wow, your game's just raining lovely redheads at you at the sunset of your dynasty, isn't it?
Hahaha, I've been researching vikings lately, too. We must be cosmic siblings of some sort, Pippin.

Looking forward so much to CPL Erika's victory walk into the ambrosia room!

Indeed!  At the end of the soon-to-be-posted update, we'll have Captain Princess Lady Erina mere days away from hitting the adult life stage!

--cheers, with pompoms-- so close! I love that Her prefers to be called Her and Milo's new love is delightful.
Yeah, Her is delightful...and intimidating.  And yes, I adore Nobuya!  Expect to see more of both ladies as the dynasty nears its end.

Oh, I think more of the problem will be figuring out which of the possible founders not to use  ;=)

Yes!  So many lovely redheads!  I'm so happy!
And yes, the Gaivan and Saanvi relationship is a fun roller coaster at times!  He's delightfully dependent and she's wonderfully in control at all times  :=)

Pippin:  We return to the Took household to find something extremely exciting...



Pippin:  Kasandra!!
Saanvi:  Yep!  Gaivan and I had this little darling and she obviously got her good looks from me!
Pippin:  She...her hair...the nose...her features are...
Saanvi:  Wow!  Have you been taking conversation tips from my hubby?
Pippin:  ...maybe.
Saanvi:  Anyway, looks like we've found the obvious choice for next founder!
Her:  (glares)
Nobuya:  I didn't exist last week!  I don't even know what a week is!!
Pippin:  Anyway, the Took household decides to randomly hit the town for...no apparent reason, actually...



Milo:  I'm Mr. Blue
Gaivan:  When...because you...and saying that...love me
Pippin:  Wow.  That's really something.



Pippin:  Wow!  That's really something!!
Wade:  Yeah.  I made the wrong choice.  Dunk challenge.  We should have just done karaoke.  I'm going to lose.  A lot.



Pippin:  And speaking of wow, we meet Hayden Olvera, shapely mixologist.
Abernathy Abernasty:  Well, hello there!
Pippin:  But another lovely lady was also present at the karaoke club...



Her:  See how I've impaled this woman on a door?  You could be next.
Abernathy:  (gulp!)  I'm sorry.
Pippin:  And here's another lovely couple...



Nobuya:  My tummy's getting big!
Milo:  That's because our beautiful baby's in there!
Nobuya:  No!  I didn't eat the baby!  Unless the baby was cereal.  I did eat the cereal.  I'm sorry.  Am I a cannibal now? 
Milo:  (sigh) No, sweetness, let's go visit a doctor and let him try to explain.
Pippin:  And speaking of lovely couples...



Blurange Blur:  Well, hello, loveliness!  Thanks for inviting me out for a romantic brunch!
Ericka:  Eh, I got tired of dating all the hot ghostly guys.
Blurange Blur:  (lip quivers)  Wha...what?
Ericka:  I'm messing, doofwad!
Blurange Blur:  Oh!  I...haha...that is...I'm not cool.  I'll go get our table.



Blurange Blur:  Hey, isn't that a food critic at the next table?  Do you think she'll mark the restaurant down if we make out the whole time?
Ericka:  Only one way to find out!



Food Critic:  Check please!
Pippin:  Meantime, everyone's favorite captain princess lady was busily working on her aspiration...



Pippin:  in theory...
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hey, I only need one more best-seller and that won't happen if my fun bar is too low!
Krista:  Excellent observation, cap'n!
Captain Princess LAdy Erina:  Thank you, Mister Krister!  This is why you have the privilege of having one of your arms in this shot.
Krista:  You are too kind, sir.
Izumi:  I wanna be in a picture...
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  No.
Pippin:  But you know who does get to be in a picture?



Pippin: Kasandra!
Kasandra:   Don't know whether to be flattered or file for a restraining order.
Saanvi:  Yeah, Pippin gets that a lot.



Pippin:  And this is Emerson Xu, daughter of Abernathy and...actually, I have no idea who her mother is...but she conveniently illustrates how much lovelier Kasandra is!
Emerson:  Wow.  Thanks.
Pippin:  What?  Kasandra's simply more impressive.  Speaking of impressive...



Pippin:  Captain Princess Lady Erina has finished her museum contributions and has finished her aspiration and now only needs to max two more skills, get two more promotions, and hit the elder stage.
Saanvi:  And do her parties?
Pippin:  Oh, right!  She still needs four gold medal parties.  Good thing she's got three days until she works again!



Pippin:  Dinner party!!



Pippin:  As if getting three Sims to dance was going to be a challenge at the Took household!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Too bad no guests other than my family members came and now I can't call Sims to a meal.
Pippin:  Wait!  End the club gathering and create a group!



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  You will come eat this food now and you will like it!
Pippin:  Well done!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Thanks!
Pippin:  And your formal wear is just lovely!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Is it the outfit, or the model?
Pippin:  Fair point!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Woot!  Gold medal!  Hot dog cooking festival time!
Pippin:  Weenie roast?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  That too!



Pippin:  Well, this seems like a really nice, calm...OH MY GOODNESS!!!



Milo:  It's okay, I saved the burgers!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yeah, and I saved your life, but let's all focus on the burgers.
Milo:  Which are now covered in fire extinguisher goo.
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Saved.  Your.  Life!



Krista:  That was so amazing how you saved everyone from the fire!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  You get me, Krista.  You really get me!
Izumi:  I would get you, but I wasn't even invited.
Pippin:  Sorry, Izumi, but we can't risk losing your unique BFF status by having you become friends with any other family members.
Izumi:  (sniff) It's okay (weeping) I understand.



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Woot!  Gold medal party!  I'm awesome!
Krista:  Yeah you are!
Pippin:  Things are going wonderfully for the Tooks!



Nobuya:  And then the doctor put me in a machine and it magically made a baby and the doctor made me take it home, but he did remove the extra cereal from my belly.
Fluffy:  MooOO Moo MOO moOOoo?
Nobuya:  Well, either the cereal or the baby was my baby, but Milo was so happy that we did the being undercover thing again!
Fluffy:  MoOO mOOOooo MoO?
Nobuya:  Yes, I think he did mention trying for a baby, why?
Pippin:  (facepalm) and on a happier note...



Pippin:  Kasandra being lovelier than Jayden, daughter of Chantons and his third wife, Rieko.
Jayden:  Wow.
Kasandra:  Yeah, I'm thinking restraining order...

Well, as for Emerson, you know what they say. If the Xu fits....
Am I the only one who thinks that Emerson and Jayden look like twins? Or is their only similarity that they're both redheads!

Gratz on the gold-medal parties!!! You sure like your weenie roasts. Is it even possible to host one without a fire breaking out?
Two skills, two promotions, and a few parties within a little over three sim-weeks?
In the bag, Pippin. In the bag!

So Kasandra, eh? For the founder of....? By a process of elimination, I'm guessing the Rival Dynasties Challenge?
But I get ahead of myself.
Go, Pippin, go!!!!

Yes, Emerson and Jayden look similar.  Jayden's prettier.  Kasandra, however, embodies the unique beauty of a Took  ;=)
I think the fire threat of a weenie roast is simply part of the fun.  Well, as long as it's not your current heir who's the fire victim.
Yeah, I'll have three-ish Sim weeks left after this next update. 
No promises on Kasandra as founder, but I'm definitely fond of her.

Bahahahaha, Sorry Kassandra but not sure a restraining order would stop Pippin at this stage lol  That cracks me up.  Poor Izumi lol she's so forlorn and desperate.
Yeah, Izumi has become a really fun background character for this point in the narrative.  She, Her, and Nobuya have really given me a fun extra dimension for the writing...and they're all about to get some more screen time  ;=)

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Romance and a Birthday
« Reply #347 on: June 13, 2018, 01:23:13 PM »
Pippin:  We return to the Took household where we find sweet and loving couples in abundance.



Milo:  You are truly the loveliest thing I've ever laid eyes on.
Nobuya:  I'm a thing!
Milo:  You...that is...you're right.  That wasn't very romantic of me.
Nobuya:  Oooo, romantic!



Abernathy:  You are the most beautiful...
Her:  Yeah yeah, I know.  Now, if you decide to be unfaithful, I may have to ruin this dynasty attempt by taking your life.
Abernathy:  (gulp)
Pippin:  And returning our focus to the heiress...



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Woot!!  Maxed the video gaming skill!  Only that handiness skill left to go!
Pippin:  Yep, she's doing an excellent job.
Ericka:   Of course she is.  She takes after her mama.
Pippin:  And speaking of her mama...



Blurange Blur:  So, you missed me so much you had to ask me out for brunch again?
Ericka:  Eh, I just take pity on losers.
Blurange Blur:  That works for me!
Ericka:  Let's hug really awkwardly to make the wait staff uncomfortable!



Waiter:  I...you two...should I call for an ambulance?
Ericka:  See?  That was awesome!
Blurange Blur:  You're the best, baby!
Ericka:  It's true.



Vlad:  If monsieur would like to stop making googly eyes at his wife, perhaps we could order some food?
Ericka:  No, Vlad, it's cute.  You can just wait.
Vlad:  (sigh) Okay.
Pippin:  But this happy couple wasn't the only duo to have brunch plans.



Izumi:  Can you just check once more?
Maitre D:  I'm sorry ma'am, but...
Izumi:  It should be under Took.  Or Erina.  Or Captain.  Or Princess.  Or maybe Lady.
Maitre D:  Are you sure she really invited you out...?
Izumi:  I'll just go look for her, she's probably waiting for me.
Maitre D:  Ma'am, I...
Izumi:  (walks away)
Maitre D:  (sigh)



Ericka:  So, I'm still not sure if mine is soup or salad.  How's yours?
Blurange Blur:  Oh, you mean the Jell-O lettuce crown?  It's wiggly!



Teagan:  That's right, Took.  Or it might be under the name Abernathy.  We're celebrating because we're having a baby!
Maitre D:  That Took is also not on my list.
Teagan:  Yeah, we had to try several times, but it finally took.  We used a bed, a bush, a closet...
Maitre D:  Please stop sharing.
Teagan:  Oh!  It finally took!  That's hilarious!  Because his name?  Took?  Hahahahaha!
Maitre D:  I hate my job.
Teagan:  So yes, it should be under Took.



Izumi:  So, you're the Took family maid, right?
Myra:  Yes, I am.
Izumi:  Great!  So, does Captain Princess Lady Erina ever mention me?
Myra:  ...what?
Izumi:  She secretly confides in you that I'm her favorite, right?
Myra:  Oh!  You must be Krista then.
Izumi:  (sigh)
Pippin:  But eventually, to the joy of a certain Maitre D, we turn our focus to a couple at another venue.
Maitre D:  Thank goodness!



Tessie:  Hey, gnomeycakes!!
Grim:  Hello, my love.  How's our little girl doing?
Tessie:  She's awesome!  Because she takes after me!  Though she does have your nose.  She'd probably let you borrow it if you asked nicely.
Grim:  ...uhh...
Tessie:  Let's cuddle!
Grim:  Okay.



Grim:  This...isn't how cuddling works...
Tessie:  Hush, you're ruining the romantic moment!
Grim:  And we're just looking at the ceiling over the back patio...
Tessie:  Romantic!
Grim:  Actually, you're just staring at the wall...
Tessie:  Ro.  Man.  TIC!
Pippin:  And we return to the Took household to check in on our heiress.



Pippin:  And while we're there, Captain Princess Lady Erina manages to max out handiness.



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Because.  I'm.  AWESOME!
Pippin:  It's true.  Oh, and it's GeekCon time.
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  That seems montage-worthy.
Pippin:  True stuff!



Pippin:  Nice!  And while we were there, Izumi found new and better ways to seek attention.



Izumi:  Look, Captain Princess Lady Erina!  I practically am Krista now!  This means I'm your favorite, right?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  No.
Krista:  I have never felt more uncomfortable in my life.
Kori:  That's saying a lot considering most people we meet are also our dad's kids.
Pippin:  Yeah, they're some of Abernathy's.  Speaking of, you can see the now-no-longer-pregnant Teagan walking in the background...wearing her swimwear?  To GeekCon?  Anyway, we get back to working on the party requirements with a house party.



Abernathy:  Well, I'm just going to go inside and hope that Her hasn't found out about Teagan.
Saanvi:  Oh.  Good plan.



Gaivan:  I'm...just you...and because...kissing...
Saanvi:  Ooo!  Good plan!
Alondra:  My parents are so...you know, I was going to say embarrassing, but I guess it could be worse.  I mean, Kori and Krista's dad is Abernathy.
Abernathy:  Hey!
Kori and Krista:  Good call.
Abernathy:  So offended!



Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So, anyway, I'm just going to complete 12 socials with you to knock out the main goal of this party.
Mallory:  That's sweet, but don't you think Izumi will want those socials?
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Oh, I didn't invite her since she's my unique BFF.
Izumi:  (weeping)
Pippin:  Woot!  Gold medal!



Pippin:  Dang it, Abernathy!
Abernathy:  What?  Her's not here!
Pippin:  If you get yourself killed before we finish this dynasty I will delete you!
Hayden:  Oooo, it's risky!  This is so exciting!
Abernathy:  See, Pippin?  Every gal loves a bad boy!
Pippin:  Wait, isn't that Her behind you?
Abernahty:  WHAT?!?!?  Sweetie, I'm sorry!  I didn't mean it!
Pippin:  Gotcha, mister bad boy.
Abernathy:  ...jerk.
Pippin:  And that brings us right up to Captain Princess Lady Erina's birthday party as our final party requirement!



Pippin:  Yep, the kitchen at the Took household works again and Gaivan is making the second to last cake we'll ever need.
Gaivan:  I...and it's when we...because starting...
Pippin:  I know, buddy.  I'm proud of us too.



Pippin:  Guests!  And yes, I might just be showing off how awesome Alondra and Krista are.
Alondra:  But not as awesome as Kasandra, right?
Pippin:  ...maybe...



Abernathy:  Secret handshake time!  Congrats and happy birthday, kiddo!
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Thanks, Krista's dad!
Abernathy:  ...I have a name...
Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yep!  It's Krista's dad!
Krista:  Thanks, cap'n.
Pippin:  And finally...



Pippin:  the final heir reaches adulthood.  Only one more promotion at work to go and then we just wait for elderhood.  Things are looking great for the Tooks!



Pippin:  And for the next-gen Tooks.
Kasandra:  If I don't give him eye contact, will he go away?
Gaivan:  He...and because...and Watcher...
Kasandra:  (sigh) That's what I figured.

Oooh, just one more career promotion and an elder birthday! Woot, woot!
Poor Izumi! It's so curious how one needs to exile the unique BFF because, otherwise, other family members will make a beeline to the one sim they shouldn't befriend.
Watcher, you have roughly three sim-weeks to go!
Things are looking good for the Tooks, eh? Indeed!!!

P.S. Glad to hear that Gaivan can cook on the home lot again!

Reading a Pippin story while drinking is a terrible, horrible idea XD Especially while at work... I laughed way too hard at all of the various non-household Took members XD Their byplay is just amazing.
