Pippin:  We rejoin the Took household where very Took things are happening.



Pippin:  And while Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina...
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Excuse me?  I seem to remember someone getting a promotion, and therefore, another title?
Pippin:  (sigh) while Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina was busy dancing with her Took It Home club...



Pippin:  Gaivan was being sweet and faithful and Abernathy had just met the DJ.  They became really close really quickly.
Saanvi:  (sigh) Yeah, he does that.
Pippin:  Anyway, Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina can't spend all of her time dancing.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Nope!  Gotta put a stop to Moriarty's evil ways!
Pippin:  And thus, she returns to work.



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So, inferior officer, what do you think Moriarty is up to?
Inferior Officer:  I...uh...I don't know?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Figured you didn't know, but I had to discuss case theories with one of you underlings.
Inferior Officer:  I'm not actually sure you outrank me...?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Okay, time to head off on patrol!



Pippin:  Umm, is someone stalking you? 
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Probably!  I mean, I am pretty awesome!
Pippin:  (facepalm)
Hayden:  Pssst!  Officer!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  I believe you mean, "Pssst, Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady?"
Hayden:  I did, that just takes so long to say.  Anyway, remember when you were at my house because it was a crime scene?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  No.  I don't actually...
Hayden:  I'm the babymama for your Great-great-great-great grandpa?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Oh, right!  Hey, how's it goin'?
Hayden:  Good.  Anyway, my friend here has information for you.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Is the information that he's also one of my great-great-great-great grandpa's kids?
Hayden:  Well, he is, but it's actually info about Moriarty's dirty cop.
Pippin:  And with some more info in her possession...



Pippin:  Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina stares at her corkboard of crime-solving some more.



Pippin:  And bearded officer stares at her.
Bearded Officer:  (thinking) So glad the corkboard's at the front of the room!
Pippin:  And speaking of romantic...or at least pseudo-romantic things...the Romance Festival came to town!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Curse you, Moriarty!  Planting an explosive device at the Romance Festival!  Not to fear, I shall disarm it!



Pippin:  Ummm, are you sure you know how to do that?



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  ...apparently not...
Pippin:  But it turns out that the "explosives" were just fireworks, so we could tend to the actual reason we came...
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hey!!  It's one of my informants!



Informant:  Yeah, so that gal in the dress has a direct line to Moriarty.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hmm, I may have to call in a specialist to grill this witness.  (Pulls out phone) Abernathy!  Yep.  So, there's a gal I need info from...you'll be right here?  Great!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Woot!  That man is a pro!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Umm, wrong girl...
Abernathy:  But she's a redhead!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  It's so hard to find good help these days.
Pippin:  Aaaaanyway, we finally get to the real purpose of coming to the Romance Festival.  First off...



Pippin:  Saanvi and Gaivan renew their vows.
Saanvi:  I will immortally treasure you, and I will cherish you everyday and my jealousy will know no bounds and we will share love and joy forever.
Gaivan:  And I...you and...because we...there are...with love...because ever...loving!
Pippin:  Aww, how sweet!  And the second reason we came...



Pippin:  Nobuya and Milo finally tie the knot!
Nobuya:  Tying you up in knots!
Milo:  Thanks for giving her ideas, Pippin.
Pippin:  ...I'm sorry?  But before Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina (pauses to catch his breath after saying her name) heads in for her next day of work, we re-open Took Retail Goods!



Blurange Blur:  Oh yeah, I forgot we owned this place.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  I can't believe we're wasting time here when Moriarty is...oooooo, look at that!!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  I look awesome!!
Pippin:  True, but thank goodness Bearded Officer isn't here to see that.  He'd never get any work done again!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Who?
Pippin:  Never mind.  Anyway, we turn our attention to our customers.
Abernathy:  Can I help you, miss?



Maki:  Oooo, such a friendly staff you have here!



Diamond:  So, do I look good?
Keegan:  Yeah, absolutely!
Diamond:  Good enough that Pippin might consider me as a founder for his next dynasty?
Keegan:  Uuuuuummm...



Pippin:  And if you'll notice in the background of that last shot, Abernathy and Maki are emerging from the closet as Teagan's standing right there in the store...not noticing.
Teagan:  Oh, I noticed.  I'm just pondering how to lord this over him as you know Her would kill him if she found out.
Pippin:  Wow.  Evil!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  And speaking of evil...



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  someone has to put a stop to Moriarty's evil ways!

That underhanded Abernasty! Using the closet to torture information out of the double-agent!
Um, that's what he's doing, right?

Ahhh, the narrative freedom of having all the requirements ticked off as Erina strides courageously toward her elder birthday!
Will soon-to-be-Senior-Detective Detective Captain Princess Lady Erina get her man?
Love this entertaining update! *double thumbs up

Yeah, Abernathy is totally just taking one for the team  ;=)
So glad you're enjoying seeing our heiress conducting glorious nonsense in the detective career!  It's not a career I've really explored much, so it's fun to have this chance to take it on a "test drive," so to speak.
I'm so close to the end!!!   It's pretty exciting!

The Took Immortal Dynasty, Doing It the Easy Way
« Reply #363 on: June 19, 2018, 08:07:41 PM »

Pippin:  We return to the Took household to find Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina hard at work.



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hmmm, I think I know where Moriarty will strike next!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  ...or where he will have struck next.  Dang it.



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So, where were you while Moriarty was vandalizing this place?
Maki:  Umm, in the closet with your great-great-great-great grandfather?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yeah, that sounds like a legit alibi.
McKenzie:  Pretty sure he and my mom conceived me in a closet, so yeah.
Pippin:  Yeah, pretty sure half the population is Abernathy's descendants.



Pippin:  Hmmm, looks like someone was walking like an Egyptian.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yeah, I can't get that reference without shattering the fourth wall.
Pippin:  Fair enough.  And our favorite Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady gets back to work cross referencing information with the police database.



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Oh.  I'm actually just playing Sims Forever.
Pippin:  (facepalm) And I staged such a dramatic shot for it and everything.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Well, guess I'll head out on patrol.



Maki:  Don't you try to question me, Officer Took!  I found out your great-great-great-great grandpa is cheating on me with about seven other ladies!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  How dare you...



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  not use my entire title!  That's Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina to you!
Pippin:  Are you sure throwing slushies at citizens is acceptable?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yeah, it's standard procedure.  Well, I'm a bit hungry.



Pippin:  Wait, did you effectively just break and enter at the old Behr residence?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  It's not breaking and entering when you call it "patrolling," Pippin.  Everyone knows that.
Pippin:  I...I don't think that's how that works.  Anyway, back at the Took household...



Pippin:  Milo heads to space!



Pippin:  And he becomes the first Took to set foot on Sixam!
Milo:  Yeah, but unfortunately, I didn't get to meet any aliens.
Pippin:  Abernathy does.



Abernathy:  So, you're a Pollination Technician?  How interesting.  Would you like to learn about how we do pollination on our planet?
Pollination Technician:  Oooo, that sounds educational!
Abernathy:  Quite!
Pippin:  And as we return to the heiress...



Pippin:  she resumes patrolling.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hmmm, my suspect is an elder wearing shorts and with the clumsy trait.
Off-Duty Officer Nobuya:  (trips)
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yeah, I think we found our dirty cop.



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  You need a shower!
Officer Nobuya:  That's not what dirty cop means!  I mean...I didn't do anything?
Pippin:  Wow, she's slick!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  To the interrogatey room!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So, we can do this the easy way, or the hard way.  But I'd recommend the easy way.  I mean, it's easier.  That's why we call it the easy way.  Because it's easy.
Officer Nobuya:  Umm, I choose the easy way?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Done!  Just sign off on your confession and we'll lock you back up!  Actually, you work here.  You know how to lock yourself up, right?  K!  Bye!
Officer Nobuya:  ...thanks?



Kyra:  So, you lost my fingerprints and need new ones, right?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Nope!  Just had "fingerprint a prisoner" on the job list and since you're my informant...
Kyra:  (whispering) Shhhh!!  I'm trying not to let the other inmates know that so I can still get information from them!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Well, then you totally shouldn't have mentioned that thing about being my informant in front of them.  Very unprofessional of you.



Pippin:  And I stage another great shot in which something effective is happening!
Kyra:  Great!  Now that you've got the inside man, you can go after Moriarty's next key player.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Key player?  So, pianos have keys.  It's a pianist?  Hmmm...
Kyra:  No.  That's not what I was saying.  At all.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Great!  I know someone who plays piano!



Aya:  But...I was a witness!  I helped you in your last case!  I'm innocent!
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Your innocence can't protect you now!
Pippin:  No.  It absolutely can.  Please just apologize and release...
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  To the interogatey room!!



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So, you say you're innocent, and none of the evidence points at you, but you play piano!
Aya:  ...I do...?



Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  ...I'm just going to point the lamp at you some more.
Aya:  ...okay?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So you're ready to confess?
Aya:  I confess that I didn't do anything?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  HaHA!  Sign the confession and lock yourself in a cell!  I'm dismissed!
Other Officer:  Umm, the chief would like to see you.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  No doubt to congratulate me.



Chief:  So, you dragged in an innocent woman...
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Yep!
Chief:  who had nothing actually identifying her as guilty...
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Correct!
Chief:  and who had helped us on a previous case...
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  That's right!
Chief:  and got her to confess that she was innocent?
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  You are welcome sir!   
Chief:  Ma'am.
Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  I'm dismissed!  (leaves)
Chief:  ...k...
Pippin:  Indeed, she is the pride of the Sim Police Force.  And she is the pride and joy of her mama just as she was of hers.  And speaking of her mama's mama...



Pippin:  she still makes time for this loser.
Blurange Blur:  Hey!
Ericka:  no, sweetie, he's right.  You're a loser, but you're my loser, so it's okay.



Blurange Blur:  Oh, okay!
Pippin:  And meantime, Took offspring parade past to try to present themselves as viable candidates for the next dynasty.



Danika:  Well, I am a vampire with all the Took traits!
Emerson:  And I'm pretty, dang it!  I'm a redhead and I have the nose!
Milo:  True, but we have four lovely little redheads at home.
Nobuya:  Nobu-nooboos!!
Milo:  Yes, my love.
Pippin:  And as our update draws to a close...



Pippin:  Ericka and Blur draw a crowd.
Onlookers:  Ooooo!  Ahhhh!

Hahahaha, DOCPL Erina and her watcher are having too much fun with the Detective career!

I was a little surprised that Milo is the first Took to reach Sixam at this point in time.
Isn't Abernathy a scientist? How has he never visited Sixam? What he has been doing all this time? Oh wait...no need to answer that. *winks
LOL, Abernasty swapping notes with the Senior Pollination Techncian #3. I hope she brought multiple notepads along...

Speaking of Milo, is there a chance that you will share a glimpse of his four little redheads before your challenge ends?
Will DOCPL Erina ever earn her promotion to Senior Detective? Is the eternal-backstage Wade still alive?

Looking forward to your next update. How close is the final heir to her elder birthday? *bites nails eagerly

Once again DOCPL Erina proves that she's not just a pretty face, she's a force to be reckoned with.

Keep up the good work, you are almost there!

Yeah, detective is turning out to be really enjoyable!!  Of course, having our young heiress in that role simply makes it that much more enjoyable  ;=)
Milo's adorable family will make some appearances.  They are such a sweet and lovely crew!  I can't even tell you how happy I am I decided to do the random wish for romance with him and found Nobuya.  She's outstanding!
Yes, Wade is still right there holding everything together.  He is the ultimate ninja support Sim  ;=)

Once again DOCPL Erina proves that she's not just a pretty face, she's a force to be reckoned with.

Keep up the good work, you are almost there!
Glad you're enjoying her!  I certainly find her delightful!
So close!!  The finish line is in sight!!

I am loving DOCPL Erina. She has got to be the best cop ever. I still have not made my mind up on Abernasty. ;)
Yeah, Abernasty is an easy Sim to love or hate.  Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina, on the other hand, is just as loveable as could be!  The whole detective career was kind of a "hey, why not" decision as a way to pass the last life stage, but I'm so glad I made that choice!

Pippin:  As we rejoin the Took household, we find Detective Officer...
Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Ah-hem?
Pippin:  (sigh) We find Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina at a crime scene.



Diane:  So...uh...why are you on the floor?
Nobuya:  Oh!  I just thought she was short!
Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Well, you see, my informant advised me that I needed to look at things from another angle to figure out what Moriarty was really up to.
Nobuya:  Smart!
Diane:  Yeah...so, what has your new angle revealed?
Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Your skirts match!
Nobuya:  Brilliant!  They do!  They really do!
Pippin:  Yeah, somehow she manages to keep her job.  Anyway, back at the Took household we have a visit from fledgling vampire Herbert Mahajan, son of Gaivan and Saanvi.



Herbert:  Hey, Dad!
Gaivan:  Hey...it's...because you...and seeing...for so...and nice!
Herbert:  Yeah.  Anyway, did you really have to name me Herbert?  I mean, none of the other vampires are really intimidated by me or anything.
Saanvi:  Right, so you'll have no trouble suckering them into dueling you.
Herbert:  That's...brilliant, actually.  Thanks, mom!
Pippin:  Yeah, it's possible Kasandra has some competition for that future founder spot.
Kasandra:  Hey!
Pippin:  Speaking of lovely Took children who'd make great founders...



Pippin:  Milo goes to visit Nobuya and their four lovely girls and discovers that Samara has aged up into a lovely teen!
Samara:  So, why can't you live with us again?



Adeline:  Yeah, daddy!  We miss you!
Milo:  Sorry, my dears, but we only have a little longer before your Auntie Senior Detective Officer...
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Ah-hem?
Milo:  Oh, right!  She got promoted!  Your Auntie Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina will be aging up to elder soon and then I can move in!
Adeline:  So just in time for my teen mood swings?
Samara:  Yeah, and I'll still be in the midst of that and Mariana will also be a teen by then.
Milo:  Oh.  Great.
Pippin:  Sorry, Milo, but at least the girls are lovely.
Milo:  Thanks.
Nobuya:  Nobu-nooboos!!
Pippin:  Anyway, Milo does spend some time with his happy little family...



Pippin:  and the girls are so sweet and just love each other so much!
Saanvi:  Are you fangirling, Pippin?
Pippin:  ...a little.  Anyway, happy family time can't last forever as we need to return to the hunt for Moriarty.



Kyra:  ...and she's been a key orchestrator for everything Moriarty's done.  Trust me, I've worked with her, so I know she's crafty.
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  I love crafts!  Maybe we can have some arts and crafts time in the prison!  I'll bet everyone would love that!  I'll see if she'd be willing to lead it!  (leaves)
Kyra:  (sigh) I'll just lock myself up...again...



Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  HaHA!  You're a brown-haired adult woman in a skirt and short sleeves!!
Suspect:  Umm, yes?
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  So you admit you're guilty!  To the station where you will spread 'em!
Suspect:  ...what?



Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Oh, I see you thought you could bring a getaway car!
Suspect:  Umm, that's a toy...
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  No excuses!  To the interogatey room!!



Suspect:  Ugh, you're giving me such a headache.  If I just tell you all I know about Moriarty, can I please just be left alone in my cell?
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Not until you tell me all you know about Moriarty!
Suspect:  That's literally what I just said.
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  No, I said it.  I'm the one with the hat.  That's how you can tell us apart.
Suspect:  Ugh, headache is getting so much worse.
Pippin:  And with more information gathered, Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina returns to her corkboard of crime solving.



Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hmm, I've got all this yarn and I keep wrapping it around, but it hasn't made an oven mitt yet.  Arts and crafts time is clearly not working.  Curse you, Moriarty!
Pippin:  Yes.  Indeed.  Anyway, her arts and crafts time gives way to crime solving and leads her out to a crime scene...



Pippin:  with weird llama graffiti.  Anyway, she turns her attention to interviewing witnesses...some of whom are enjoying the attention more than others.



Jayden:  So, you think I'm pretty, right?  I mean, prettier than Kasandra?  Sure she's got the purple hair and all, but I'm pretty, right?
Other Officer:  Umm, yes, but that doesn't really answer my question about...
Jayden:  So you really think I'm pretty?  (turns to Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina) And what about you, do you think I'm pretty?
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  What?  Oh, sorry.  I wasn't listening.  I was just doodling a sketch of Kasandra.  She's so pretty!
Jayden:  UGH!!!
Pippin:  Anyway, Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina finds enough clues to head after her next suspect.



Pippin:  She knows it's a young adult male with blonde hair.  Jean jacket is good, but prep sweater is evil, so our obvious choice is...



Pippin:  the good one?
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  He's good at being guilty!
Good Suspect:  Umm, what?



Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  BAM!  Is this your card?
Good Suspect:  Umm, those aren't cards and I didn't pick a card, so...
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Tada!!
Good Suspect:  ...yay?



Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  BAM!  Light of truth!  Now you have to confess!
Good Suspect:  Umm, no I don't...
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Light.  Of.  TRUTH!
Good Suspect:  You're right.  I confess.
Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Woot!  Done.  Lock yourself up.  I'm dismissed!!  And promoted!  Bam!!
Pippin:  And with another case closed, we return to the household and Abernathy has an unexpected date.



Pippin:  Apparently he made quite the impression on the pollination technician!
Abernathy:  No way Her will catch me on this date!
Pippin:  Yeah, a massive beam of light isn't painfully obvious and visible or anything.  Anyway, it's about time for ambrosia again, but the stove breaks down...
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  To the rescue!!



Gaivan:  I...and can't...to the...
Pippin:  Oh.  Guess I should have canceled his cue to repair it when Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina jumped in to do it.
Saanvi:  You think?



Pippin:  But the day is saved and we don't have to break into the surplus stash hidden in the inaccessible basement under the vet clinic.  And now we turn our attention to finishing some less-than-necessary dynasty business...



Pippin:  by getting a picture of the final heir and her unique best friend to adorn our wall of awesomeness.
Izumi:  I made the wall!  I'm awesome!
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Nope!  Krista's awesome, you're just not related.
Izumi:  (sigh)



Pippin:  Every heir, their spouse, and their unique bestie commemorated in painting and photo, and through the wall, the wall of wives.
Grim:  Not a wife.
Tessie:  Gnomeycakes is my wife!
Pippin:  And speaking of Tessie and her wife...



Pippin:  they get in a double date with Ericka and her loser husband.
Blurange Blur:  I get so tired of being called a loser!
Grim:  I get so tired of being called a wife!
Ericka:  And I'm tired of listening to both of you whine.  Let's crank up the romance!



Blurange Blur:  Your wish is my command!



Grim:  I got you a rose.
Tessie:  I got you a me!
Grim:  Wow, I really won that trade!
Tessie:  Did you just call me a loser?
Grim:  I...uhh...
Pippin:  And as Grim sticks his foot in his non-existent mouth, we draw this update to a close.

Bwahhhh, Poor Grim. He can't win for losing.

You need to stick with the initials for SLSDOCPL Erina. That's has got to be the longest title I have ever seen.

I'm not mentioning the last heir anymore---her name's too long to deal with. ;-)

I'm not mentioning the last heir anymore---her name's too long to deal with. ;-)
Go Last Took Heir, but...
#TeamHerbert
Ooo, Team Herbert has arrived!  I wondered if people would start championing potential future founders.  Thanks for the input  ;=)

So close...Will Moriarty foil the hopes of SLSDOCPL Erina?
Curse you, Moriarty!  Yep, we're super close.  The final post will be tomorrow!!

Pippin:  We return to the Took household to find the extended family enjoying the benefits of having our heiress holding a lot of sway in the local police department.



Bearded Officer:  I can't believe I let her talk me into escorting her niece to and from school.
Adeline:  Well, if it makes you feel better, I'm actually not her niece.  I'm her great-great-great aunt or something.
Bearded Officer:  Nope.  Not feeling any better.  But thanks for trying.
Pippin:  And since we're speaking of the extended family, may I introduce Bianca...



Pippin:  daughter of Abernathy and Her.
Bianca:  So, my mom says you're a "real piece of work" and I don't think it's meant as a compliment.
Abernathy:  Umm, thanks?
Pippin:  And while Abernathy and Her may not be the happiest of couples...



Pippin:  Saanvi and Gaivan and adorable!!
Saanvi:  I am!  I guess he's okay too.
Gaivan:  Aww...and the...because she...and yeah...adorable!



Pippin:  But I'm afraid that not all of our family news is happy and/or adorable.  Our dear and beloved Fluffy made it almost all the way to the finish line...



Pippin:  but ended up missing it by about a 2 day margin.
Grim:  No worries.  He's with me now.  We Brain Trusters gotta stick together.
Ghost of Fluffy:  MoooOOO  Moomoo Moo!
Pippin:  What a glorious, enjoyable, and faithful friend you've been to the Tooks, Fluffy.
Ghost of Fluffy:  Moo MOO MooOOmoo, Moo?
Pippin:  You're right, we should check in on our heiress.



Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Hmmm, this victim was a little tea pot. Let's see...here is the handle...and here is the spout...
Pippin:  Excellent detective work there!
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Ah-hem?
Pippin:  (sigh) Excellent sergeant lieutenant senior detective captain princess lady work there!
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Better!
Pippin:  And with the evidence she gathers, Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina manages to discover...



Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  I haven't put anything on this side of the corkboard yet!  That's why things looked off.
Pippin:  And that leads her to make another arrest and...



Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Stop!  Hammer time!
Suspect:  Oh...uh...that's not mine...
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Oh.  Okay.  Wanna see a card trick?
Suspect:  Uh...yes?



Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  BAM!  Light of truth!
Suspect:  That's not a card...
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  But you were tricked!  Card trick!  Now you have to confess!
Suspect:  I confess that I was tricked?
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Guilty as charged!  Lock yourself up and throw away the key...but not literally because then we couldn't unlock the door later!  I'm dismissed!  (leaves)
Suspect:  ...k...bye...
Pippin:  And since we have some time between her shifts, why not throw...



Pippin:  a spooky party?
Alondra:  You know, I thought this costume would be unique.
Samara:  Well, if I get to be the founder for the next challenge, at least you can brag that you dressed like a founder.
Alondra:  ...that did not make me feel better.
Pippin:  And speaking of potential future founders...



Kasandra:  Nooooo!  Why am I stuck with the maid outfit?  I specifically requested princess!
Pippin:  That wasn't even an option, so...
Kasandra:  Maybe it wasn't an option for you, but it was totally an option for me!
Saanvi:  True stuff, baby girl!



Pippin:  And we have a race to finish carving pumpkins!  Milo ends up winning.
Milo:  Why not just show them a picture of me winning?
Pippin:  Oh...about that...
Saanvi:  Really, watcher?  You have one job--watching.
Pippin:  I know, I know.



Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Woot!  What a great party!
Pippin:  Really?  Your costume is just standard detective attire?
Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina:  Well, dressing like a lame, ordinary detective is definitely not dressing like myself, and therefore, a very solid costume!
Pippin:   Fair point.



Pippin:  And with a gold medal spooky party (that we didn't actually need) accomplished, we celebrate with a dance party...



Pippin:  except for Abernathy who celebrates with a Maki.  Wait, I thought she was furious from finding out he was cheating on her...?
Maki:  No, he explained to me how it was all a misunderstanding and those other girls were just work associates.
Pippin:  (facepalm) Anyway, Milo spends the remainder of our time before Sergeant Lieutenant Senior Detective Officer Captain Princess Lady Erina's final shift at work with his happy little family.



Chanel:  Dad!  I made you a bagel!  In a bowl!
Milo:  Aww, thanks, baby!



Pippin:  I love this family!!  Samara and Mariana are so close.  They chat all the time and hang out together and autonomously hug.



Pippin:  And Chanel and Adeline do the same thing!  They're all so cute!
Nobuya:  Nobu-nooboos are cutey-patooteys!!
Milo:  Truer words have never been spoken!



Pippin:  Yeah, these two are also adorable.  And speaking of adorable...



Pippin:  Lots of Took offspring!!
Kasandra:  So...I still get to be the next founder right?
Pippin:  No promises.  Anyway, the Took family is about a day out from the Hall of Fame, but will that be enough time to put a stop to Moriarty's reign of terror?  Probably.  I mean, it would be pretty rude to end without resolving that.

Only a single image of Herbert and not even a solo screenshot? I must protest!
Herbert may not have the Took nose but he inherited Gaivan's skintone and hair color.

I was on the verge of complimenting the beauty of that pink-pigtailed sim dressed as an intersteller smuggler, then realized it's Tessa!
Way to stay gorgeous, Tess!

Looking forward to seeing how the heir with the impossibly long name wraps up the case of the century!!!
