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


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.

Grim 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...

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.

I appreciate this challenge might a bit harder to read than my previous works, due to its rather repetitive nature. But, now that Amelia is nearing her end goal, there's going to be a lot more storytelling in upcoming interludes. So, please bear with the in-between updates as the plot begins to reach its finale!

That being said, here's the next chapter!

Following the revelations in the last update, I'm working very hard to get to baby 25! I hope to have an update for you very soon.

In the meantime, I'm happy to say that the first 15 children (plus Jules’ wife Amelia) are now available for you to download!

Need some spares for a legacy or challenge? Or, just looking for some fun, kooky new Sims to play with? Look no further!

Their younger siblings will follow shortly!
