The Big, Wide Universe

Shari:  Did you ever think, Andrew, that our oldest child would become a vampire?
Andrew:  NoÖbut then again, I would never have predicted that our youngest child would be born an alien.
Shari:  Thatís true.  Weíve got it all covered in one generation, donít we?

Apollo:  Dada waní 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 whatís 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 donít have an answer for you.  I really donít understand it myself.  Are you curious about your heritage?
Fig:  Kind of.  Thereís something else Iíve been wondering.  Do they ever take anyone and not bring them back?
Andrew:  Iíve never heard of that.  Everyone always returns as far as I know.
Fig:  Thatís a relief.  I donít think Iíd want to stay, but Iíd like to go up thereÖjust once.

Daisy:  Thank you for mentoring me, Mama.  I donít think Iíll ever be half the writer that you are, though.
Shari:  Youíll find your own voice and have your own success, Daisy.  Iím sure of it.

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

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

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

Aster:  I feel so strangeÖitís like IímÖoh!
Apollo: Oooooo!  *claps*  Again! Again!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  I just transformedÖin the bathroom...in front of Apollo.
Wendy:  Thatís wonderful, honey, and donít worry about Apollo.  Heís 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 ďagain!Ē  Listen, if you donít mind, Iíd like to visit Forgotten Hollow right away.  Iím eager to start my training, and I might as well go while itís 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 didnít want to risk it.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

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

Wendy:  Well, Iím certainly not letting anyone else be your first!

Meanwhile, upstairsÖ

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 IímÖ?
Betsy:  An alien?  Youíre joking, right?  Everybody knows.

Betsy:  Yes, but you often glow.

The following eveningÖ

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

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

Fig:  Thanks for coming over, Evie.  I know itís 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 dreamÖor maybe it was real.  Iím 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 gatheringóit was like a convention or somethingóand there were all these strange people there.  I donít know if they were wearing costumes or disguises or what.  Maybe they were aliens like me, I donít know. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie:  Okay.  And this wasnít just alien night at the bar?
Fig:  No.  It was bigger than that, and it was in the city.  And hereís the best part, Evie.  There was this thingÖlike a huge firecracker or Chinese rocket that was big enough to climb inside.  And I had an idea.  I thought, ďWhat if I get in that big firecracker and ride it into space?  What if I could eat a grilled cheese sandwich in space?Ē  Doesnít that sound great Evie?
Evie:  Only you, FigÖ
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fig:  So thatís 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:  Itís 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.  Iíve been thinking about it a lot lately, and I think itís true when people say Ďhome is where the heart is.í   And my heart is here.

Evie:  Fig! Youíre 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.

I also like the picture with the three children in different life states.

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.

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:  UghÖevery 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) AhhÖnow this is true beauty.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Öand Baby Bill and the Bobcat bounced buoyantly all the way home.  The end.
Apollo:  Again! Again!
Shari:  Weíve read this book 37 times sweetie.  Wouldnít you like to read Charlotteís 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 BillÖ
 [ 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 Iím devilishly handsome soÖ
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.  Iím sure youíll 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 canít 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:  Itís a good thing you didnít miss Fredericoís 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.  Itís such an honor to serve your household, sir.  What shall I do first, sir?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  Well, weíre having a birthday party this afternoon.  You can attend to guests and make sure the dishes donít pile up.

Wendy: ♫ Hav boo borgna voo! ♫

Andrew:  Itís convenient they both rolled Artistic Prodigy. 
Aster:  It sure is.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Itís nice to see you, Evie.  I hear things are going well with you and Fig.  Finally.
Evie:  Thanks, Wendy.  Things are good.  Really good, butÖ
Wendy:  Uh-oh.  Whatís wrong?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Evie:  Nothing is wrong.  Itís justÖmy age.  You see, Iím 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 Iím worried.  What if I become an elder before he even asks me to be his girlfriend?
Wendy:  If itís just more time that you need, I think Aster can help you.
Evie:  I was hoping youíd 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:  Iím sure.  And I can always change back, right?
Aster:  Yes, but the initial transformation is rather uncomfortable.  I just want you to know what youíre 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 havenít even started school yet.
Andrew:  Because we never miss an opportunity to get ahead in this family.  If you finish quickly, weíll all go to the flea market this afternoon. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Artemis:  Weíre not actually going to buy fleas, are we mother?
Wendy:  Of course not, dear, weíre 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:  Youíll give him a good review, wonít you, Papa?
Andrew:  I can honestly say that I will.  Heís not half bad.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Daisy:  Heíd sound even better if he had a decent guitar.  Do you think heíd 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!  Thatís my last masterpiece for Painter Extraordinaire.  Now I can finally start the good vampire aspiration.
Aster:  Well done, darling!  And I canít help but notice that this is a flirty paintingÖ
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  You know, if you would choose the Ďbat formí power like me, we could try this another way.
Aster:  Iím 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?
Andrew:  Why is it always me.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Fig:  Actually, it was Aster last time.  Itís almost always you.

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?)?

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.   :)

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.   ;)

Aster:  Thanks for coming over, Hamza.  Oh, and just in time.

Aster:  Come downstairs.  Iíll give you training before our club meeting.  I canít call the others until itís dark out.

Andrew:  Sure, son.  Whatís 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 youíve never had any doubts?  Donít 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.

Fig:  This is nice, but how is fishing going to help me with Evie?
Wendy:  Because youíve got Anglerís Tranquility, Fig, from completing the Angling Ace aspiration.  Whenever you feel tense, all you have to do is go fishing. 
Fig:  Youíre right, Wendy!  I was feeling tense before, and now itís gone.  How did you know?

Wendy:  Because Angling Ace was my first aspiration.  Iíve got Anglerís Tranquility, too.  Now, if youíll excuse me, Asterís having a club meeting tonight.  I need to get going.

Hamza: Um, sir?  May I ask Ö 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?

Evie:  I know.  Itís frightening.  And not in a good way.
Fig:  The red eyes are pretty creepy.  Mostly, though, it just isnít you.

Fig:  Why did you do it, Evie?  What made you want to be a vampire?
Evie:  Iím not getting any younger, Fig.  At least this way, Iím 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 donít have access to youth potions.  The truth is, I donít really like being a vampire.  Iíd change back right now if I could.
Fig:  Say no more.

Evie:  Thatís it.  Iím just plain olí Evie again.
Fig:  Youíve never looked better.

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. Sheís decided to do Renaissance Sim.

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.

Shari:  Thatís 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 thereís still hope.  The household may be full right now, but we arenít elders yet, Andrew. Iím 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.

Little do they know that progress is being made toward the Big Happy Family aspiration as they speakÖ

Note:  Evieís 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.

Ahahahaha, that was a fun update.  Poor Daisy, wanting to differentiate herself.  Glad to see her going for Renaissance Sim ^^ Ha, finally Fig! It's about time!
