Welcome back! Hope your vacation was a wonderful one. ;D
Regarding the resemblance between your Aster and LenaLJ's Nathan, I noticed that when I added Aster's photo to the Rules thread that they share the same hair color, hairstyle, and warm skin tone. They are the most similar among the second-generation Sharebears. It's so cool.
Fig is quite adorable. May I add that a deep friendship is the bedrock of a strong marriage. Go Fig!

The new house looks amazing. Thank you for adding the red and blue before-and-after lines, what a clever touch!
Best wishes with your newly-minted vampires! I love Aster and Wendy's downstairs sleeping quarters and ensuite.

Thanks!  Hopefully I won't make too many noob mistakes with the vampires.  So far, I really like playing them.

Great Game

Wendy:  What’s the matter, darling?  Don’t you like the eggs and toast?
Aster:  Normally I love your cooking, but unfortunately I think I’m losing my appetite for all food. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  It must be the transformation.  Did the old man say how long it would take?
Aster:  He said a few days.  He wasn’t very specific. 
Wendy:  Tell me more about the old man.  Does he really live all by himself in a huge mansion?
Aster:  As far as I can tell.  When I knocked on his door, it opened by itself. There was no one else there. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Ooo…was it scary? 
Aster:  I was nervous, but mostly because I wasn’t sure if he would agree to turn me or not.  Then I remembered that I could always go to the Vatores if Count Straud refused. 
Wendy:  But he didn’t refuse. 
Aster:  No.  In fact, he was quite agreeable…almost friendly.  He was playing the organ, and I complimented his music. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  And when he turned you…did it hurt?
Aster:  I don’t know.  He put me in some kind of trance.  I guess the answer to your question is that I don’t remember it hurting.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 Wendy:  So, what’s next?  Did Count Straud offer to train you?
Aster:  He said he can’t train me until after I transform.  In the meantime, I bought a punching bag so I can improve my strength for sparring matches.  I put it in the guest house for now. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  And of course, we can always read about vampire lore while we wait for my transformation.
Wendy:  Ah yes.  The not-so-glamorous part of becoming a vampire. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


Daisy:  What do you think of this new game Daichi?  I like it almost as much as horseshoes.
Daichi:  Hmm…looks interesting. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy: You see, you just carrrrrrefully do this…
Daichi: Oh, I wouldn’t take that one!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy:  Oops!  Well, at least it’s still sleeping.
Daichi:  Shh…don’t breathe…just back away…slowly…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

As Daisy and Daichi narrowly escape waking the llama, we interrupt with some random family announcements:

Fig receives a promotion.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy and Daisy both max a skill to complete an aspiration.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

And Aster befriends this handsome fellow and secures his vote.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

We now return to the game table where another couple stares intently at the slumbering llama…

Shari:  Best. Game. Ever.
Andrew: *scratches his head while pondering his next move*
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Aha!  I did it!
Shari:  Good job!  Try another one!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Andrew:  It’s your turn, dear.  You try one.
Shari:  Oh no, I couldn’t.  I’ll just watch you.

After several more thrilling games of Don’t Wake the Llama…

Wendy:  Hey honey!  I know you aren’t really interested in food right now, but the Spice Festival is in town and everyone else wants to go.  Would you like to come along or would you rather stay here?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  I’ll go with you.  If I don’t feel like eating, I’ll just mingle in the crowd and secure more votes.
Wendy:  That’s the spirit! 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy:  Oh…I don’t feel so good.
Fig:  Ow! Hot! Burning!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  That’s odd.  Your father didn’t think the curry was too spicy.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Hey Daisy!  Isn’t that your old nanny playing the guitar?
Daisy:  It is!  I’d know that mustache anywhere.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

And with that, the family heads home.  Just as they return, this happens:
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Are you okay?  What was it like?  Did they ask about me?
Aster:  Must…bed……need…sleep.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

After a good rest…

Aster:  Good morning, princess!  Do you know what today is?  It’s your birthday!  Let’s get you and your brother out of those bassinets, okay?

I've never seen such exciting screenshots of Don't Wake the Llama before. They're great!
Andrew is positively beaming at his successful maneuver and Shari looks equally thrilled. They make such a great couple!
    Oh, I hadn't expected Andrew to become the Spicy Curry Champion!  I hope his victory took some of the burn out of seeing his old nemesis, the nanny, at the festival, hehe.
    Awww, too bad the aliens didn't abduct Fig instead of Aster. Poor Fig, wondering if he's remembered in Sixam. :(
I automatically began counting the household members when Aster got abducted.
    Happy birthday, Artemis and Apollo! So cute!

There are some really cute animations with Don't Wake the Llama, aren't there?  I'm going to have to remember that in the future.
I didn't expect Andrew to be a Spice Hound either.  He never ceases to amaze me.   :)
If I had known that the aliens would come for Aster, I might not have filled the house up with 2 adoptions right away.  As a male heir, if Aster had an alien-boo, the child would be eligible to be heir because it would have a connection back to the founder.  Oh well.  It makes for an interesting side plot anyway. I think Fig would be wondering about the aliens at this point in his life.

The Big, Wide Universe

Shari:  Did you ever think, Andrew, that our oldest child would become a vampire?
Andrew:  No…but then again, I would never have predicted that our youngest child would be born an alien.
Shari:  That’s true.  We’ve got it all covered in one generation, don’t we?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]



Apollo:  Dada wan’ cheese?
Aster:  No thank you, son.  Daddy is not hungry.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig: Papa, may I ask you a question?
Andrew:  Of course, son, although I think I already know what’s on your mind.  You are wondering why the aliens came for Aster and not you; is that right?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Fig:  How did you know?
Andrew:  Just a hunch.  Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer for you.  I really don’t understand it myself.  Are you curious about your heritage?
Fig:  Kind of.  There’s something else I’ve been wondering.  Do they ever take anyone and not bring them back?
Andrew:  I’ve never heard of that.  Everyone always returns as far as I know.
Fig:  That’s a relief.  I don’t think I’d want to stay, but I’d like to go up there…just once.

Daisy:  Thank you for mentoring me, Mama.  I don’t think I’ll ever be half the writer that you are, though.
Shari:  You’ll find your own voice and have your own success, Daisy.  I’m sure of it.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Artemis:  More! More!
Apollo:  Again! Again!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  Once more, and then it’s bedtime.
Wendy: *out of breath* I don’t know if we wore them out, but I’m certainly worn out.

Wendy:  And they all lived happily ever after.  The end.
Apollo and Artemis:  Zzz…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Apollo:  Dada!  Need poddy!
Aster:  Didn’t your mother just put you to bed?
Apollo: Poddy!
Aster: Okay, let’s go to the potty.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  I feel so strange…it’s like I’m…oh!
Apollo: Oooooo!  *claps*  Again! Again!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  I just transformed…in the bathroom...in front of Apollo.
Wendy:  That’s wonderful, honey, and don’t worry about Apollo.  He’s our silly toddler.  He probably thought it was great fun. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  Yeah, he keeps asking me to do it “again!”  Listen, if you don’t mind, I’d like to visit Forgotten Hollow right away.  I’m eager to start my training, and I might as well go while it’s dark.   
Wendy:  Of course, dearest.  Maybe you can even meet the Vatores while you are there. 

Wendy:  How was it?  Did Count Straud give you training?
Aster:  Yes, Count Vlad (he said I should call him by his first name now) agreed to train me.  He seemed pleased and told me come again.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Then I went to the Vatores as you suggested.  Only Lilith was home, but she was very nice.  She trained me and offered me vampire knowledge.  I was hoping to spar with her, but the sun was coming up and I didn’t want to risk it.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  That’s probably wise.  You don’t want to try too much on your first day. 
Aster:  I did learn enough to get the Vampire Creation power.  So if you’re ready, you can be the first one I turn.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Well, I’m certainly not letting anyone else be your first!

Meanwhile, upstairs…

Fig: And that, Betsy, is why grilled cheese sandwiches make the perfect meal.
Betsy:  Do all aliens get this excited about grilled cheese, or is it just you?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig: H-how do you know that I’m…?
Betsy:  An alien?  You’re joking, right?  Everybody knows.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Fig:  But I always wear my disguise!
Betsy:  Yes, but you often glow.

Aster:  Welcome to my club, Frederico.  I’m so glad you decided to join us.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Alright Emilie, that’s quite enough!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Thanks for coming over, Evie.  I know it’s late.
Evie:  Yeah, well, you called a club meeting so I had to come over.  What is it, Fig?  You look really excited about something.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  I am!  I had a dream…or maybe it was real.  I’m not sure.  It seemed real, but it must have been a dream.  What do you think?
Evie:  How can I know unless you tell me what happened?
Fig:  Right.  Okay.  So, I found myself at this gathering—it was like a convention or something—and there were all these strange people there.  I don’t know if they were wearing costumes or disguises or what.  Maybe they were aliens like me, I don’t know. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie:  Okay.  And this wasn’t just alien night at the bar?
Fig:  No.  It was bigger than that, and it was in the city.  And here’s the best part, Evie.  There was this thing…like a huge firecracker or Chinese rocket that was big enough to climb inside.  And I had an idea.  I thought, “What if I get in that big firecracker and ride it into space?  What if I could eat a grilled cheese sandwich in space?”  Doesn’t that sound great Evie?
Evie:  Only you, Fig…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  So that’s what I did.  I ate a grilled cheese sandwich in space, and then I stayed up there for a while.  Just looking around, you know.  And I saw it.  I saw Sixam, and it was beautiful.
Evie:  Which one is Sixam?  Can you show me?
Fig:  It’s the big blue one in that cluster of stars over there.  See it?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie:  Do you wish it was more than a dream, Fig?  Would you like to go to Sixam for real?
Fig:  Not anymore.  I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, and I think it’s true when people say ‘home is where the heart is.’   And my heart is here.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Evie:  Fig! You’re glowing pink.

Aster makes quite a striking vampire in that first shot!
He's turned 3 sims so far in this update. Does that mean he's started the Vampire Family aspiration?
Or is he simply creating weaker vampires to serve as his sparring partners?
Oh, Fig is glowing pink! I'm so glad he finally realizes that he wants to have a relationship with Evie!
We have all been waiting for Fig to wake up, lol. Cheers, Fig! You can do it! ;D

The dream sequence for explaining gamescon and the grilled cheese aspiration step is perfect.

Ah, what a lovely dream! It was such a clever way of tying his goals in the narrative, his complex feelings about Sixam, and the aspiration in one fell swoop, without breaking the setting. Fine work.

Yep, you guessed it.  Aster is doing Vampire Family and maybe Master Vampire after that.
Fig and Evie are too cute.  It's hard to not let them steal the show.

Thanks!  I would love an Aster alienboo, too, but Aster and Wendy have to adopt a lot of kids first before that would even be possible.  So far, though, the aliens still seem to prefer Andrew over everyone else.  :D

The dream sequence for explaining gamescon and the grilled cheese aspiration step is perfect.
I also like the picture with the three children in different life states.
Thanks!  I'm lucky that Geek Con showed up at the right time for Fig to go use the rocket.

Ah, what a lovely dream! It was such a clever way of tying his goals in the narrative, his complex feelings about Sixam, and the aspiration in one fell swoop, without breaking the setting. Fine work.
Yeah, I couldn't really have Fig build his own rocket so I had to come up with a way for Geek Con to make sense.  The fact that Aster was abducted by the aliens (while Fig never has been) was a bonus.  Cue dream sequence.  The answer to everything!  ;D


To everyone:  Whew!  I can't believe I left Evie and Fig hanging there for over a month!  It was an unintentional break, but I'm back now.  :)

A Growing (Vampire) Family

Andrew:  Ugh…every sim with a paintbrush thinks they are an artiste.  My eyeballs actually hurt.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Where did that fairy princess go?
Artemis: *giggles*
Andrew: (thinking) Ahh…now this is true beauty.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  …and Baby Bill and the Bobcat bounced buoyantly all the way home.  The end.
Apollo:  Again! Again!
Shari:  We’ve read this book 37 times sweetie.  Wouldn’t you like to read Charlotte’s Pig or Dog on a Log now?
Apollo:  Bill!  Bobcat!
Shari: Okay. *sigh* Once upon a time there was a beautiful bouncing baby boy named Bill…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy: This portrait of you in your dark form is going to be a masterpiece. I can tell. 
Aster:  Well, my wife tells me I’m devilishly handsome so…
Wendy:  And your wife has excellent taste.  But do you think it was wise to choose Painter Extraordinaire as my second aspiration?  Should I have gone ahead and picked my vampire one instead?
Aster:  I think you did the right thing.  I’m sure you’ll finish the painting aspiration in no time, and you still have a day or two before you transform.   
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 A few days later:

Aster:  I can’t believe I missed your transformation!
Wendy:  I, for one, am glad you missed it.  My original dark form was hideous. I had to run straight to the closet.
Aster:  Well, your new dark form is the complete opposite of hideous.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  It’s a good thing you didn’t miss Frederico’s transformation.
Aster:  Tell me about it!  Can you believe that fool was just standing there on the beach letting himself burn?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Thank goodness you got to him in time.
Aster:  Yes, and I gave him a stern lecture about sunlight, too.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Welcome to our home, Mr. Datta.  I hope you will be comfortable here.
Mr. Datta:  Thank you, sir.  It’s such an honor to serve your household, sir.  What shall I do first, sir?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  It’s nice to see you, Evie.  I hear things are going well with you and Fig.  Finally.
Evie:  Thanks, Wendy.  Things are good.  Really good, but…
Wendy:  Uh-oh.  What’s wrong?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Evie:  Nothing is wrong.  It’s just…my age.  You see, I’m an adult and Fig is still a young adult.  You know how he drags his feet when it comes to this kind of stuff, and I’m worried.  What if I become an elder before he even asks me to be his girlfriend?
Wendy:  If it’s just more time that you need, I think Aster can help you.
Evie:  I was hoping you’d say that.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Are you sure you want to do this, Evie?  Is my brother worth the trouble?
Evie:  I’m sure.  And I can always change back, right?
Aster:  Yes, but the initial transformation is rather uncomfortable.  I just want you to know what you’re getting into.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie:  Wendy explained everything to me.  I still want to do it.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Apollo:  Why do we have to do homework over the weekend, Papa Behr?  We haven’t even started school yet.
Andrew:  Because we never miss an opportunity to get ahead in this family.  If you finish quickly, we’ll all go to the flea market this afternoon. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Artemis:  We’re not actually going to buy fleas, are we mother?
Wendy:  Of course not, dear, we’re looking for collectibles. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Apollo:  Are these collectibles, Mother?
Wendy:  Yes, these are snow globes.  And they have the City Skyline one!  Your father bought all the others for me at a flea market right after we were married.  But the vendor was missing one.  Now we finally have it!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Apollo:  That was easy.  Are we going home now?
Wendy:  Your father and I have just enough sun resistance left for one more stop on our way home.  Papa Behr needs to complete a work assignment in the Arts District.

Daisy:  You’ll give him a good review, won’t you, Papa?
Andrew:  I can honestly say that I will.  He’s not half bad.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Daisy:  He’d sound even better if he had a decent guitar.  Do you think he’d let me buy him one?
Andrew:  Leave him a generous tip so he can buy it himself.

After returning to the Behr homestead:

Wendy:  There!  That’s my last masterpiece for Painter Extraordinaire.  Now I can finally start the good vampire aspiration.
Aster:  Well done, darling!  And I can’t help but notice that this is a flirty painting…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  You know, if you would choose the ‘bat form’ power like me, we could try this another way.
Aster:  I’m saving up for sunlight resistance.  Now get in here.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Meanwhile:

Andrew:  Here we go again.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Hey, Papa.  How was it?

Haha, Andrew is surprisingly a sim of many guises!
The other day he was decked out as Curry Champion and now he's a beret-adorned art critic!
No wonder the aliens love him the best. You think Senior Pollinator Technician #3 has a thing for Andrew?
How curious that Fig is the only one who's never been abducted!

Artemis and Apollo aged up into adorable children, though they don't resemble each other at all.

Congrats on the snow globe collection! Wow, Wendy made fast work of Painter Extraordinaire!
How great for Evie! I was worried that we might not get to see her children with Fig!

Oh, the twins aged up nicely and very different.

And I love how accurate it is that a toddler wants to be read the same book again and again.

Poor Evie, thankfully she has Aster to help her stay young until Fig figures things out. At least he doesn't seem as hurt when the alien didn't picked him this time.
Will Andrew write some reviews on alien art (Xeno-art?)?

Haha, Andrew is surprisingly a sim of many guises!
The other day he was decked out as Curry Champion and now he's a beret-adorned art critic!
No wonder the aliens love him the best. You think Senior Pollinator Technician #3 has a thing for Andrew?
How curious that Fig is the only one who's never been abducted!
Artemis and Apollo aged up into adorable children, though they don't resemble each other at all.
Congrats on the snow globe collection! Wow, Wendy made fast work of Painter Extraordinaire!
How great for Evie! I was worried that we might not get to see her children with Fig!
Everyone loves Andrew, it seems.  I don't know if SPT#3 has her eye on him or not, but she's not getting him.  ;)   I agree that it's interesting Fig has never been abducted.  In other files that I've played, it's quite common for aliens to be abducted by their own kind. 

Artemis and Apollo are so cute looking! Both with good traits too!
I never noticed the little congratulations message for completing a collection before I wonder if it changes depending on what else you have complete? That would be so cool!
Yeah, you never know what you are going to get when you adopt nooboos, but I've been lucky so far.  Since Aster and Wendy will need to adopt several, I've been trying to pick infants with different skin tones for variety. 

Aster is doing so good as an heir, I am really happy that he is the heir, still reminds me of my Nathan. I need to go home and play now I think. Time to return to my Sharebears.
I would love to see more of your Sharebears!  Have fun playing.   :) 

Ooo, Artemis and Apollo are so cute! Also, that shot of Aster beckoning Wendy into the coffin had me cackling evilly.  It's great.
Yeah, the animations for coffin woohoo crack me up every time.

When I decided that Evie would be Fig's love interest, I knew I'd have to do something about her age.  Luckily, Aster was able to help out.   ;)

Big Happy Family

Artemis:  We’re going to school!  We’re going to school!  Last one there is a rotten egg.
Apollo:  I don’t care about school, but I will not be a rotten egg.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Did you hear the news, Mama Behr?  Aster won the election!  Your son is the National Leader!
Shari:  Just think, I’ve had the honor of changing the National Leader’s diapers.
Aster:  Mama!
Shari:  I’m just teasing, son.  I’m quite proud of you.  I knew you’d reach the top of your career—and quickly, too.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Thanks for coming over, Hamza.  Oh, and just in time. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  Come downstairs.  I’ll give you training before our club meeting.  I can’t call the others until it’s dark out.

Mr. Datta:  Good form, sir, good form.  Will you be needing anything, sir?
Aster:  If you could just show the others in when they arrive, that would be great.
Mr. Datta:  Consider it done, sir.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 Daisy:  Must you mentor your offspring in my room, brother?
Aster:  I’m sorry, sis.  He wandered up here when I offered him training.  I’ll take him downstairs as soon as I’m done.  You should really think about locking your door, you know.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Hey Evie!  What a nice surprise!  Did Mama call a club meeting?
Evie:  Actually, I’m here for Aster’s club.
Fig:  Aster’s club?  But why?
Evie: Umm…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The following day…

Daisy:  Whew!  That’s the last bestseller I need for my aspiration.  Now if I only knew what I wanted to do next…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Papa, do you have a minute?
Andrew:  Sure, son.  What’s on your mind?
Fig:  How did you know that Mama was the one for you?
Andrew:  Well, to be honest, it was your mother that did the choosing.  As a legacy founder, she could have anyone she wanted.  I just thank my lucky stars she picked me.
Fig:  And you’ve never had any doubts?  Don’t you ever feel tense?
Andrew:  Sometimes my unflirty trait makes me a little tense around others, but never around your mother.  Now, my job often makes me tense.  When that happens, I take a muscle-relaxing bath.  Works every time.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Daisy and Aster, I’m glad you are both here.  May I ask you something?
Daisy:  If you are going to ask us if you should marry Evie, the answer is yes.
Aster:  I concur.
Fig:  Well, that’s not exactly what I was going to ask.
Daisy:  But that’s the gist of it, right?
Fig:  Don’t either of you ever have doubts?  Don’t you ever feel tense?
Daisy: Is your noncommittal trait getting in the way?  Just take a moodlet solver.  Or buy the ‘carefree’ trait. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Wendy:  Fig?  I couldn’t help but overhear, and I think I can help you.  Come with me.

Fig:  This is nice, but how is fishing going to help me with Evie?
Wendy:  Because you’ve got Angler’s Tranquility, Fig, from completing the Angling Ace aspiration.  Whenever you feel tense, all you have to do is go fishing. 
Fig:  You’re right, Wendy!  I was feeling tense before, and now it’s gone.  How did you know?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Wendy:  Because Angling Ace was my first aspiration.  I’ve got Angler’s Tranquility, too.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, Aster’s having a club meeting tonight.  I need to get going.

Aster:  Welcome to another meeting of Aster Dark.  Tonight, we’ll be…
Hamza: Um, sir?  May I ask … why are we meeting in the dog park and not at your house?
Aster:  Because someone decided to snack on my butler during the last meeting.  *looks pointedly at Emilie*   I will not tolerate such behavior.  My family and my employees are off-limits.  Is that clear?
Frederico, Ritu, Hamza, and Emilie:  Yes sir!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  I’ve invited Miss Lilith Vatore to tonight’s meeting to give us some pointers.  She’s a Grand Master so please show her due respect.  Hamza, you’re up first.
Hamza: *groans*  Why me?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Lilith: Ooo…good one. 

The next morning…

Daichi:  I’ve been looking everywhere for you, Daisy.  What are you doing all the way back here?
Daisy:  I was just thinking.  Daichi, do you think I’m turning into my mother?
Daichi: Uh…? *realizes he just stepped on a landmine*
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy:  Every single aspiration that I’ve done, Mama did it first.  The Curator, Freelance Botanist, Bestselling Author…Mama did them all!  Even my career is just the other branch of the one Mama did.  Just once, I’d like to be the first to do something.
Daichi:  Gosh, Daisy.  I think you can do anything you want.  You’re like one of those…um…what’s the word I’m looking for?
Daisy:  Renaissance sims?  Hmm…
Daichi:  Jack-of-all-trades! That’s what I was thinking of, but that big word you said sounds good, too.   
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy:  No one has done Renaissance Sim.   That could work.  And maybe I could even complete a collection while I’m at it.  Thanks, Daichi!  You’ve been a big help!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Daichi:  Now that’s more like it!

Andrew:  I cannot believe the things people try to pass off as art.  At least this promotion brings me one step closer to retirement.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie:  What do you think of my dark form, Fig?
Fig:  It’s…uh…
Evie:  I know.  It’s frightening.  And not in a good way.
Fig:  The red eyes are pretty creepy.  Mostly, though, it just isn’t you.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Why did you do it, Evie?  What made you want to be a vampire?
Evie:  I’m not getting any younger, Fig.  At least this way, I’m not getting any older either.
Fig: Is that what you want?  To never get old?
Evie:  No, I just wanted to reset the clock, and I don’t have access to youth potions.  The truth is, I don’t really like being a vampire.  I’d change back right now if I could.
Fig:  Say no more. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie:  That’s it.  I’m just plain ol’ Evie again.
Fig:  You’ve never looked better.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


Shari:  Penny for your thoughts, dear.
Andrew:  I was just enjoying this beautiful evening.  We’ve come a long way since our days of sleeping in a tent, haven’t we, Shari?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Congratulations on completing the Successful Lineage aspiration, by the way.  I saw it as I passed by the window.
Shari:  Thank you, dear.  I was mentoring Daisy in logic. She’s decided to do Renaissance Sim.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Speaking of aspirations, Apollo and Artemis both finished Artistic Prodigy.  I mentored Artemis on the piano earlier, and Aster helped Apollo with the violin.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  That’s wonderful!  It seems we are on a roll with aspirations lately.
Andrew:  Yes, except I wonder if I will ever complete Big Happy Family?  I need four grandchildren, and we only have two so far.  Even though Aster and Wendy want a large family, I may not live to see it. 
Shari:  Oh, I think there’s still hope.  The household may be full right now, but we aren’t elders yet, Andrew. I’m sure that either Daisy or Fig will soon wish to move out. 
Andrew:  Well, aspiration or no aspiration, I think we already have our big happy family.
Shari:  Truer words were never spoken.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Little do they know that progress is being made toward the Big Happy Family aspiration as they speak…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]



Note:  Evie’s experiment with vampirism was brief by design.  I never intended to keep her immortal.  I just needed to re-set her age back to a day 1 adult to prevent her from becoming an elder too soon.

Haha! Well, no wonder Apollo and Artemis didn't look alike. I'd completely forgotten that they'd been adopted!

Renaissance Sim is a great choice for Daisy!
Besides Books of Life, she can write best-selling skill books!

Oh dear, house visitors snacking on the butler!!!
And, finally, Fig makes his move! Dude, you better put a ring on it too, haha.
I'm crossing my fingers that Evie has twins.  ;D

Go, Fig, go! Congrats on finally getting it. The vampire club was hilarious. Poor Daisy, it's okay, girl, you're getting the family closer to those Athletic points. Most are determined by quantity, not quality, you know. ;) Good luck on the Big Happy Family aspiration.

Thanks!  Daisy randomly rolled The Curator as her first aspiration, but then I realized that all the other aspirations I chose for her later were ones that Shari had also done.  I felt like I owed Daisy something of her own.

LOL!  Don't worry, Fig's a good guy-- he'll definitely put a ring on it! 
I felt so bad about the butler being bitten!  He's my first butler ever (and a good one) so I'm kind of attached.

It's true-- Daisy has contributed quite a bit to the legacy.  She's one of those sims that just quietly goes about their business and before you know it, they've accumulated a ton of aspiration points and maxed several skills.   :)

Evie’s Big Day

Shari: Does anyone remember whose turn it is?
Andrew: I haven’t got a clue.
Fig: No idea.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]



Fig:  Evie, you’ve always been more than patient with me.  I know I’m a dunce sometimes, but will you marry me?
Evie:  That’s the worst proposal ever!  You didn’t even say you loved me!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Bluebell:  Moo!  Mmoo…oo?  (translation:  Didn’t see THAT coming!  Maybe it wasn’t the best proposal, but who does she think she is?)

Evie:  What am I saying!?  Fig, I’m sorry!  I’ve been really emotional lately.  Ask me again.  Please, please…ask me again!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  *takes a deep breath* Okay. Let’s keep this simple.  *takes another breath*  Evie, I love you.  Will you marry me?
Evie:  Yes!  Oh, thank heavens, yes!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Bluebell: Moo! Moo moo.  (translation:  What a relief!  If she had rejected him again, I would have swallowed her whole.)

Evie:  I’m so happy!  And by the way, I think I’m eating for two!
Fig: Oof!  I kind of guessed as much. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Evie:  Would it be alright with you if we wait until after I have the baby to say our vows.  I’ve had my wedding dress picked out since I was a little girl, and I’d rather not be a pregnant bride. 
Fig:  Of course, Evie.  There are two things I need to finish before we can get married anyway.

Cue ominous music…

Daisy:  Mama!  Why is there an old man dying in my room? 
Shari:  Well, I suppose it must be his time.  Quick!  Go get Fig so he can talk to Grim.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Daisy:  Wait a second.  Are you saying this was a set-up?  Mama…you didn’t!
Shari:  Don’t be silly, dear.  I simply invited Jon Sherrill to join our family club.  He’s been here for several days having a perfectly lovely time. 
Daisy:  But still
Shari:  Honestly!  If I hadn’t invited him, poor Jon Sherrill would have died homeless and alone. 
Daisy:  But did he have to die in my room?
Shari:  Well, if you would lock your door…

Fig:  Excuse me, but I need to talk to Grim.
Shari: Go right ahead, son.
Fig: So, Grim…this is a little awkward, but can we talk about grilled cheese?
Grim:  No worries, Fig, I get this all the time with you legacy folk.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Artemis:  Mama Behr, why do we have to go to school?
Shari:  I thought you liked school, Artemis.  Why don’t you want to go?
Artemis:  School is okay, but Papa Behr said you never went, and you’re the smartest person I know.
Shari: Did he now?
Andrew *mumbles* Must have misunderstood me…     
Shari:  I’ll make you a deal, sweetheart.  Once you earn your ‘A’ in school, you don’t have to go back unless you want to.
Artemis:  Really?
Shari:  Really.  I’ll write the excuse notes for you myself.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Apollo:  *whispers* That was a close shave, eh, Papa Behr?   

Shari: (thinking) Another one bites the dust.  Another aspiration that is.  And just in time since Andrew and I will celebrate our elder birthdays tonight.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  *sigh* Well, that’s it.  My last birthday.  Thanks for being here for me girls.
Wendy and Evie:  You look great, Mama Behr!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Jamar:  Welcome to the club, Andrew.  It’s really not that bad.
Andrew:  Tell that to my back!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Congratulations on completing Vampire Family, my love!
Aster:  Thank you!  I chose Master Vampire next.  Do you think I can finish two vampire aspirations?
Wendy:  I know you can.  Now, what do I have to do to get some training around here?
Aster:  All you have to do is ask.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Early the next morning…

Andrew:  Fig!  Wake up!  Evie had the baby!
Fig: Wha…?  Huh..?
Andrew:  You’re a father…come on!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  She’s beautiful!  And blue!  Why didn’t you call me, Evie?
Evie:  There wasn’t time.  It just sort of happened.  I named her Kara.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Hey little blueboo.  Daddy has to go to work, but I’ll be back soon, okay?
Shari: (in background) She looks just like Fig did at that age.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  I wish I could stay, but I have to work tonight, Evie.  If I get my last promotion, would you be ready to get married tomorrow?
Evie:  Of course!  The question is, will you be ready?  Are you feeling tense?
Fig:  Not at all!  Wendy gave me some good advice.  Plus, I bought the Carefree reward, just in case.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

And with that, Fig reaches the top of the Musician career, contributes 6 potions of youth to the legacy, and transfers a ton of fish from his inventory to Wendy.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The next morning…

Wendy:  This is a beautiful church, but let’s get inside.  I’m burning up.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Congratulations, little brother.  On your promotion…the wedding…everything.
Fig:  Thanks!  I hope you all will visit us soon.
Aster:  You can count on it.  Mama is going to want to see her granddaughter.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  Just between you and me…there might be another one on the way.   Evie and I snuck off at the reception…
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Note:  I just realized that this is the 2nd update in a row that has ended with Fig and Evie trying for baby.  Oh well.  These two deserve their happiness.  I was actually hoping Evie would have twins the first time, but no such luck.  Fingers crossed for another blueboo.

Awww, that was too sweet!  Yikes, but what happened with the first rejection? Then again, can't blame her XD Fig did drag his feet a bit, didn't he?
