Well, I think the house is awesome. Now I want the super garden thing too. Bought a cowplant set for the Goths earlier today. Just because. I didn't know about the functional feature of the "futuristic" paintings, and I agree that those easels are the coolest. Heck, a lot of ITF stuff is really fancy.

Sorry, had to giggle about the prospect of a Sekemoto overdose in the household ;D

I know you mentioned Willy (Will?) Keaton as a spouse candidate, but what about Arlo Bunch? Or one of the other smaller boy kids? Though I've never played a dynasty or legacy, so I don't know if it's best if the age is as close a match as possible.

Keep up the good work! I'm really into this story 8)

(Nice rhyme and also giggled at your logic response, by the way)

My main thing is I need someone to be able to paint Bey's portraits once Aggie dies. Aggie is 76 at the moment, and Bey is 3 days off YA. Then 21 to A, then 21 to E. So Aggie would have to live to 121 at least (and paint very quickly lol) to get all of them done. It is the main reason why I bring Mortimer into the household ... he has the artistic trait ... and in this case, the game gave him handiness. He takes over the painting of Bey's portraits for the museum. and portraits of Generation 3 until he dies. Then Bey paints portraits til the end.

There's no reason why I can't choose Arlo or Miraj or Malcolm as Bey's spouse, none at all (unless the game's hooked any or all of them up with someone else already).

And thank you, Nindigo, I am pleased I am entertaining you with the story.

Edited to add:
Well, it seems that Erin Kennedy is a cradle robber! I sent Mortimer to see his old school pal, Arlo, only to be beaten to the door by an elderly Erin Kennedy. Arlo invites her in and they start making out. LOL

Ethan Bunch is the one to greet Mortimer at the door and invites him in. Then he heads upstairs. Guess who apparently got childish when he aged to YA :P
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Ethan, that's who :P

Mortimer then went and paid a visit on his lovely girlfriend, Bebe. Bebe went out to dinner with him at the diner but cut it short for two reasons both shown in this picture.

1) She is pregnant - their special showing at the Theater
2) Fiona McIrish died and Grim showed up for her ghost.

Sims are so sensitive...cutting a lovely dinner short just because a nooboo is announcing its exsistence and an old lady dies at the neighboring table ::)

But I'm mightily curious about that nooboo's appearance when it's born and aged up. I suspect big dark eyes since both parents have that.

Great, now I ship Morty and Bebe. Maybe I should arrange something in my own Sunset Valley...

Go Erin! I'm a little bit of a cradle robber myself ;D Hmm...you'd think Arlo has maybe gone gold-digger - or perhaps he is simply making sure his nose isn't passed down :o

Fishing and Working Out.

I've been threatening promising an update on the fishing exploits of Aggie and the workouts of Baktu, and here it is. Unlucky you.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aggie fishing in the family pond in the Baysix Back Yard, house in the background.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Yay, a tuna ... A tuna day keeps the doctor away ... or something like that.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
The view Aggie had while fishing at home.

Aggie went across the road to Summerhill Springs when she could fish with live bait and put some alley catfish on the hook.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Success ... she caught Angel Fish!
Enough to stock the home pond and to head out to the dead center of town to do some early morning fishing and to show some real spirit.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The big game is today - the final game of the season and so after waking, Baktu hits his personal gym at home.

First the weights ...
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Then some cardio ...
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Baktu's too impatient to wait for his drive, so he rides the bike
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
To the stadium.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
He doesn't know it, but he's about to be named league MVP!
His team wins, its actually a shut out, and he permits himself to accept the ride home.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
He's now 3 days to elder birthday and reached the status of the Sports Legend (Level 10 Professional Sports Career). His lovely daughter, Bey, has just become a YA and it seems she has picked out a husband. More on that in a later update ...

The blue hair really suit Aggie. I'm digging the museum!

It's nice to see Agnes living with her nephew. I think he's a good guy.

Good luck Bey and Backtu! You guys can do it!

Thanks for the encouragement, Trident, I really do appreciate it.

Here's the Baysix family tree as it currently stands. Please note it is ahead of where my story is at the moment and is likely to remain so.  It therefore has some spoilers in it.

Here's the current Household Statistics ... spoilers also exist within - so open and view at own risk :)

I'm always sad to see the founders grow old - wah, Aggie :'(

She looks good in everything and every color, if you ask me, since my love for Sims is unconditional ::)

I find it rather humorous that Baktu is riding his bike (and to work) half naked. By the way, does he get some of that hairy chest from Austin Powers by any chance? ;D

Wednesday Week 6 to Tuesday Week 7

There has been much skilling and aging and activity going on in the Baysix house. Baktu and Leighton have joined Aggie in elderhood, Bey became a young adult and married the older Michael Bachelor (he's an adult), and their union has brought Generation 3, a friendly genius named Startwithe (Star for short), into the game. Mortimer has now aged to adult and has a son with Bebe, name of Juston Hart I think Sims 3 will allow Juston and Star to marry in time. Juston and Star are the children of cousins - Mortimer and Bey and their respective partners.

Firstly, Leighton and Sam Sekemoto both moved in. Through Michael, (or perhaps Mortimer) I discovered that Leighton and the lovely Bella were an item and I wanted to see that I got at least one offspring from that pairup into the game. Leighton is the same age as Baktu, and like Baktu is now an elder and rockin' an ITF style hairdo and facial hair.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
My choice for his elder clothes ... not so much rocking going on. Tamra Bachelor is his daughter with Bella, looking at the in game family tree, she's a neurotic loner. His LTW of surrounded by family was not going to occur, so I've given him the change LTW reward and he's now going for The Perfect Garden.

Mortimer Goth has just hit level 10 skill in handiness and has repaired enough electrical devices to be called an electrician. Here, he is upgrading one of the family's stereos by giving it improved speakers.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Mortimer and his girlfriend, Bebe Hart have a son, Juston Hart, who is now in primary school and is a frugal absent minded virtuouso ... so he could be a world famous musician if he remembered to spend money on the instrument and music lessons, that is. :D Mortimer's LTW is Master of the Arts. He doesn't have a career.

Sam Sekemoto has joined the world of the culinary career. I really want that fridge pre cooking immortal and Sam is the sim to get it for me. Here he is, working on his cooking skill by preparing the evening meal.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
He has a naughty reputation, poor kid and it is due to the watcher. :P The game assigned him as the girlfriend to a new sim by the name of Nancy Morena. Nancy has a twin sister named Helen Morena ... well, they look identical anyway ... I sent Sam to their house and ummm had him flirting and so forth with Helen by mistake. Then when I realised that, I changed him to flirting with Nancy. I then sent Sam and BOTH his lady friends, Nancy and Heather to the town theatre. Bad mistake, as I sent him in with both of them, and had him woohoo with Helen (by mistake) and then had him try for baby with Nancy (on purpose). Outcome:- Sam is the girlfriend of Nancy and the romantic interest of Helen. He has a naughty reputation, has two active romances and has cheated with both sisters on the other sister. It doesn't seem that either of them has fallen pregnant with Sam. Poor Sam. Like Mortimer, he wants to be a master of the arts.

Michael Baysix (nee Bachelor) and Bey Baysix seem well suited to each other.
Romance between them,
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
getting married,
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
woohooing in the all in one bathrooom,
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
having a baby,
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
sleeping together
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aggie is just wonderful as always.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
and is making sure that Bey knows everything she needs to know about painting.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Having just aged up to toddler, Star had a birthday party with the household and some 'excitement' happened ...
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Mortimer was on hand though and grabbed a fire extinguisher and put out that fire in a snap and so Star changed her hair and clothing. Her mother, Bey's favourite colour is red, hers, on the other hand, is violet, and it seems to go nicely with a yellow trim for her.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Baktu is now an elder. He had to wait for the lovely Aggie to learn ambrosia after painting his portrait. He also has to get the money to buy a building and throw a party to confirm his best friends before eating ambrosia and becoming immortal.
His museum (including extra pieces - portrait of Aggie and his athletics skill certificate).
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Yes, he may be an elder and shortly to be immortal, and he may be a sports legend who can rock joggers and dinner suit, but he is still the Potty Poppy and needs to show off his mad potty training skills.

Awkward Conversations

It is Saturday week 7 in the Baysix house and Leighton and Sam sit down at the family breakfast table for a father-son chat.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Leighton - I heard an interesting thing at work yesterday.
Sam - Yeah?
Leighton - Yeah, it involved you and your extra curricular activities.
Sam - What do you mean 'extra curricular activities?'
Leighton - I mean ... first of you it was you and Nancy Moreno.
Leighton - then while you were there, her father found you with her sister ...
Sam - that's right, you mean, Heather, her twin.
Leighton - but you've actually since then been backstage at the theater with Claire's daughter.
Sam - you mean, Donna, we're good friends, you know.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Leighton - if what I hear is true, you're a bit more than good friends.
Sam - no, we're not best friends yet. Besides, what about you?
Leighton - what do you mean, what about me?
Sam - I mean, dad, I've got a little half sister! You and Bella!?!
Leighton - we were both adults! Well technically, she was a young adult ... but ...
Sam - Dad! She was best friends with Mortimer! The two of them were an item in school! I remember hearing about it. I almost get the feeling that if she ever disappeared, that Mortimer would not move on with his life, but rather go on looking for her ...
Leighton - That may have happened in another place and time, some kind of bizarro world, but here, she and I have a daughter. Tamra. Besides, Sam, Mortimer isn't doing too much pining for her since he met Bebe. I mean, those two have had a son together ...
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Leighton - oh, hi Mortimer
Mortimer - Hi Leighton, how's Bella and Tamra?
Leighton - Good thanks, Mortimer, and Bebe and your son?
Mortimer - Going well, Leighton. Juston's now in primary school, just a bit older than Tamra and Star. Wouldn't it be cool if Juston and Tamra joined the household and kept our genes going in the game just a little bit longer?
Sam - Shouldn't they be able to ...
Mortimer - you know Sam, you and either Heather or Nancy or Donna should hurry up and have a kid, then they too could join the household.
Sam - I err ... well we are trying. But I still think that we should ... Wait, did someone say KFC?

Ah, the mandatory concerns of Sims in a legacy. Don't be embarrassed. Even though I don't do challenges, I sometimes opt for multiple partners for my Sims as well. Mainly to satisfy my curiosity about the outcome of their combined genetics. Ethics are for real life ;)

So, since Donna is thinking about her mom - has Claire finally passed on?

Seriously though, Dek, ya need to capture some next-gen toddlers and kids. Please? ;D <3

OK, so I thought playing a base-game-only dynasty was a bit mad.  Adding in ITF, with all of its opportnity suppression, is just plain perverse :P.

(Although I have to admit that the futuristic styles do suit dear Aggie.)  Good luck!
