Hey everyone - this is a Gothic, Goreyesque "Who's Your Daddy?" Sims 4 challenge. It will be a mixture of challenge and plot-based storytelling.

I'm currently seeking some Sim baby daddies to help complete this, so please send links to any downloadable candidates my way!

___________________________

When Amelia Zara Livingstone has a brush with death, the Grim Reaper postpones the tragic event in exchange for her promise to fulfil a mission. It turns out conveying the souls of the dead is tough work, and he could use some helpers. 26, to be precise - 1 for each letter of the alphabet.

The Reaper charges Amelia with the task of romancing the men of the nearby towns, and giving birth to these 26 future Reapers within her remaining years. If she succeeds, she'll have the time of her afterlife. If not, then her eventual death will only be the start of a worse fate...


Prologue: A Fate Different Than Death
Part One: Beginning the Mission
Part Two: Baby Boom
Part Three: Flexing It, or, Agent Bandura Goes Undercover(s)
Interlude A - Mrs. Casper and Mr. Ridley
Part Four: The (Other) Spy Who Loved Me
Part Five: Skills Not Skulls
Interlude B - First Night on the Job
Part Six: Goth in More Ways Than One
Part Seven: Babies, Birthdays and Bedroom Plays
Interlude C - Mummy's Day Off
Part Eight: The Strangerville Experiment
Part Nine: Unlucky for Some (or, A Few Good Men)
Interlude D - The Tragic Tale of Agatha Casper

Updated 24/07/18.

After enjoying a very brief but productive liaison with a man from her "waiting list", Amelia bumps into a former paramour... but is far more interested in his best friend.

Part Four: The (Other) Spy Who Loved Me

(Strictly speaking, this is a commentary/challenge update, but it ended up including a bit of storytelling, because hey - it's me.)

Author's Note: I'm really sorry I've not updated this in so long - I've been dealing with life and mental health stuff in recent weeks. I'm feeling a lot better now, though, and I'm trying to stay positive and motivated.
