The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 3.2 - Madness
« Reply #100 on: November 09, 2019, 12:43:14 PM »
Hi guys! I'm still not sure if I should count Shark's lifetime wish, so I'm going to continue to think on it. I'll probably reread the rules before deciding at a later date. Anyways, let's get into the chapter.



Ace passed away.  :( I adored his quiet personality and the fact he was an Aries clone. Ace had five daughters with Macy Clay and I never got any notifications their relationship was ever on the rocks. When I popped into the Timeless-Clay household for pictures for the family in a save file I didn't save, Macy and Ace's relationship was doing extremely well. I'll miss seeing the things he is up to.



On another note, one of Shark's many love interests died. I'm quite torn about it as you can tell.
"I loved her!"
The only person you love is yourself.



Arius worked on putting the finishing touches on Dione's sculpture for Hera's addition to the Timeless museum.
"I can't believe I'm the last one alive."
I know.
"I don't regret being a boring spare, you know. I have accomplished more in my life than most could dream of."
Awwwww.



"Hey uncle Arius, make me look great, no, make me look majestic. I want my hair flowing and-"
"-I get it, kid. I get it. I'll worry about sculpting and you worry about your messed up love life."
OH BURN.



Hera's generation was one I'll never forget. It's crazy how much that madwoman accomplished. I miss her.



Tigger aged up and is no longer a kitten anymore!



She's still adorable though and she knows it.



Hestia decided to join the criminal career for...reasons.
"Shark recruited me."
Shark recruited her.



Dione is slowly, but surely working on her lifetime wish. I want her to complete because I have never had Simbots in my game before. She also created a little gnome who I have no doubt will harass the Timeless family for generations to come.



Hestia decided to invest in some property because I need more points.
"I also can't go to work anymore because I'm pregnant."
Wait, WHAT?
"I'm pregnant. You didn't hear the chimes."
Of course, I didn't.



Hestia...isn't the happiest pregnant woman. She takes after her grandmother, Aries, in that regard.



"Hey, babe how are you feeling with the whole...pregnant thing?"
"Let me stab you."



Hestia has to dramatically waddle everywhere.
"It's the rule, WATCHER. Try being pregnant."
No thanks.



"Oh look, I'm dying. That's surprising."
ARIUS, NO. YOU CAN'T LEAVE. YOU ACTUALLY LIKE PAINTING.



"Uncle Arius, you know I don't deal with people dying well!"
"Stop smiling, Dione. It's weird."
"Well then stop judging me then, Anastos."



"Your family is weird and Hera-"
"-Yeah, I know, but they are my family. I'm surprised you haven't had to deal with my mother yet."
"We'll continue this conversation in the afterlife."



Arius Timeless was a great spare who actually liked painting. He was best friends with his twin, Ace Timeless, until the very end. Generation two has officially exited the story except for Macey Timeless-Clay.  :'(



The Timeless family continues on like it always has though.



"Your whole family is crazy, Hestia! Crazy!"
"You're one to talk Shark!"
"Can someone please just extinguish the fire, please?"
"I'm working on it!"



After the fire was extinguished, Hestia decided it was the perfect time to give birth.
"I'm never doing this again! Never!"



Lethe Timeless was born as a witch with the heavy sleeper and genius traits. Her favorites are Chinese music, the color blue, and vegetarian grilled salmon. She's the heiress of generation four and...
...she has purple hair.
Seriously? SERIOUSLY? I never, ever had so much luck in my Perfect Genetics Challenge. Never! The one challenge where it mattered!
The irony isn't lost on me, but I'm happy the purple hair gene is going strong.



"It's a good thing she's the heiress because I wasn't kidding about never doing this again."
Somehow, I don't doubt that.



Anastos also aged up!



"I have wrinkles and a kid!"
Woah, woah. Let's address your Midlife Crisis first before we address the kid.
"Yeah, yeah. Can I marry Lolly now? It's about time."
Lolly is still married.



Audrina Racket-Gwydd was born around the same time Lethe was. Her traits are disciplined and absent-minded. Her favorites are geek rock, the color red, and lobster thermidor. I get a feeling she's going to take after her mother in terms of her personality.

That's the end of this chapter! Will things ever be normal? Probably not. Do I enjoy the madness? Oh most definitely.

Even an unmodded game counts exes made when they're not active. Granted, a sim will definitely not get enough of them without a story progression mod but one of my decadynasty in-laws had the LTW and her naturally-dead husband counted as soon as we moved in with her. Hopefully Shark didn't get widowed though! I firmly believe that he could put in all the work. ;)

Does it count for this challenge? I dunno man. :P

Man, that is crazy! SP definitely played a role in Shark being able to have so many exes. I have never seen it before though.

I'm not sure either. I'm leaning on no though as I am looking through the rules currently. It just feels like something that never could have happened in an unmodded game and therefore it shouldn't count. Shark did put in a lot of work though and I hate to see that all thrown away. XD

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 3.3 - Sibling Rivalry
« Reply #102 on: November 09, 2019, 06:38:12 PM »
Hello everyone! After this chapter, we'll officially be caught up to the point where I am-in game so feel free to make some suggestions!



It seems that Lolly is a single woman again as her husband divorced her. I'm not 100% sure what to make of this news, but I have just accepted the fact that Anastos and her relationship is weird.



Really, really weird.
I gave Lolly a makeover because it seemed like it was about time.



Also, when I went into an unsaved save file to take more pictures for the Timeless family tree, Anastos kept showing up at Lolly's house. It felt like the game was trying to tell me I need to move Anastos' kid into the household so...



..here she is! In the official save file of course. I plan to have Audrina help Lethe out once she becomes heiress as Hestia will not be having more children. All in all, it's a win.



Anastos absolutely adores Audrina and dots on her every minute he can.



Hestia has taken a more absent approach when it comes to her daughter.
"I'm letting her figure things out on her own. That doesn't mean I'm a bad mother."
Hestia, she's a baby.
"So...? It's what my mother did."
Ouch. Yeah, Hera was busy skilling now that I think about it.



Dione takes care of the fuzzy child, Tigger.
"Who's a good girl! You are, yes you are!"
She's not a dog, Dione. Cats only like to be referred to as "your majesty" and-
"-look at her fuzzy little butt!"
Sighs.



Shark is his same old self in case anyone was wondering.
"And by that you mean I'm wonderful."
Yeah, sure.



Shark officially gets a sculpture of himself now that he's the father of generation four's heiress.
"Pfft, did you ever doubt for a moment I wouldn't be?"
Yes.



After his sculpture was done, it was time for Shark to go back to skilling.





Twinbrook is absolutely stunning during the fall. I haven't played in it much, so this is the first time I'm seeing it during the fall.



Hestia continues to buy even more property to make up for the previous two generations who hadn't bought any at all.



She will be going back to work in a few days and her athletic skill is lacking.
That is unacceptable as Shark has already maxed his.
"Why do you hate me, Watcher? Why?"
I don't hate you, I just love points. There is a difference, trust me.



Hestia got a short break for Anastos to do her sculpture and...seriously Anastos?
"What? I think it's fitting."
Redo it.
"Why did you make it like that, Anastos?"
"Oh come on. You already know. You ended up with Shark of all people. You know Lolly and him are enemies."
"No one thought your relationship with her was going to go anywhere, Anastos. She used to be married and divorced her husband because of you. You're a homewrecker, Anastos."
"That's rich coming from-"
-and that's where the conversation ends.





It took a few more tries before Hestia's sculpture was completed and was placed in her part of the museum. It's a little barren so far, but the generation has just started after all.



Dione was busy trying to find life fruit and...failing.
"Meh. This is basically an everyday occurrence for me."
At least you're out of the house!
"At least I'm out of the house."



After a ride home and a quick shower, Dione and Anastos engaged in one of their favorite pastimes; indiscreetly listening on Shark and Hestia's conversations and silently judging.
"So I was thinking we could watch the stars or something? You know, do something romantic?"
"Meh, okay. Sounds boring but whatever."



At least Hestia seems happy.



After that, it was time for Shark's birthday!
"Wait, I'm getting old?"
Yes, you're getting old.



"Okay!"
Well, that's a different response for a change.



Shark is an elder and now I can officially start worrying about him not getting me enough points before he kicks the bucket.
It might be time for a vacation.

That's where I end the chapter! Bye guys and thanks for reading!  ;D

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 3.4 - Birthday Galore
« Reply #103 on: November 24, 2019, 07:04:29 PM »
Hi guys, so I may have played ahead again....just a bit. While I will still be taking any suggestions that come way, some big things have changed that led to me playing a lot. I recommend staying away from the family tree for some time.  :-X





Hestia completed her lifetime wish!



Shark also was promoted, but that's not really noteworthy when Hestia just completed her lifetime wish.
"Hey!"
It's true.



Dione invented a miner and I have never used it before so it has been a great source of enjoyment for me. Luckily, none of the Timeless family sleeps except for the babies, so Dione can use it at any time of the day.
"Bold of you to assume I wouldn't have done that anyway."



She also discovered this magical gnome while using it. I have no idea what his name is, but he's been getting along well with the other gnomes.



This random hole then popped up that Dione was allowed to explore. Man, I really haven't done enough with Ambitions.



Anastos was busy befriending his boss so that he could get a promotion.
"The old fashion way doesn't work these days."



"As your best friend now, how about you give me that sweet, sweet promotion?"
"I'm afraid I can't do that, Anastos."
Boo.



I was dragged back to the household by the game and Dione managed to burn herself. AGAIN.
"It's also my birthday, Watcher."



Dione aged up scorched and the game wasn't sure what to make of it, so it changed her eye color.
"Uh...Watcher?"
Yeah, yeah. I'll fix it.



Better?
"Better."
I gave Dione a more mature makeover and while I like it, it's just nothing compared to her old one. Oh well.





Lethe and Audrina aged up too! They're adorable toddlers, but both of them don't take after the Rackets very much.



They decided to be autonomously adorable and MY HEART.



My game decided to bug out and so Hestia aged up last though definitely not from lack of trying to fix it on my part.



I'm happy with Hestia's makeover. It feels fitting to me.



Speaking of makeovers, here is Lethe with Hestia.
"Do I have to hold her?"
Yes, you have to hold your daughter, Hestia.
"Ugh."
Well someone must be channeling their inner Aries. You can definitely tell Hestia is related to her. Anyways, LOOK AT LETHE'S CHUBBY CHEEKS.
LOOK AT THEM.



Audrina has them too, but she takes after mostly Anastos, who, unlike Hestia, actually likes his kid. He rolls wishes for her all the time.





For that reason and that reason alone, a toddler training picture spam was in order. It's not much of a spam, but the only reason I have my sims train toddlers in short dynasties is for the lifetime happiness points. They get assigned randomized traits anyways.



Hestia and Shark also, surprisingly, rolled a wish to see Lethe learn how to talk, so Dione was in charge of that.
"Say 'apple!'"
"........................."
"Good try! How long do I have to do this before I go back to digging random holes in the yard and being set on fire, Watcher?"
Until she learns how to talk, of course.
"Aw..."



Lethe does eventually learn how to talk and gets to take a break from skilling to play dolls with Audrina.
I'm not sure if she's happy about it.



Look who came to visit again? Spydon!
"Aries wants to hear about the latest drama and I'm here to deliver."
I miss her and Spydon.  :'(



Shark got attacked by bees after trying to SLAP Spydon.
He tried to slap SPYDON.
No wonder he got attacked by bees.



"I would do it again too!"
I think that just means you're an idiot.

That's the end of the chapter, guys! Sorry that this chapter was late, the holidays are upon me and that means things are going to get interesting. Bye guys!  ;D

I cannot BELIEVE the Rackets are still around. Congrats on snagging one! Shark's a cutie. Shame the girls didn't get more of his genes : ( At least they have those cute chubby cheeks!

Twinkbrook really is gorgeous in the fall, wow. I should try playing there more often XD

I was surprised too! I was keeping an eye on them since Ace's family lived in their house, and both Lolly and Shark were still kicking! I knew that Shark HAD to be the father of the heiress/heir of generation four. It is a shame.  :( I really wanted more of the Racket genes, but all in all, they are both adorable.

I know, right? I wasn't really expecting it to be honest! It was a nice surprise.

Those miner holes are a lot of fun! You might even unlock the caveman/cavelady outfits too.

Eh I wish I could be surprised about Shark being a meanie weenie towards Spydon. For some reason I think there's EA programming to make him a flawed individual (but ultimately good don't get me wrong)

Thank you! It's Arie and Spydon's genetics, I tell you!
I can't believe Shark did it either. I saw the action and went "oh nooooo."

Man, I wish! I would love to have those outfits. I have no doubt in my mind at least one member of the Timeless family would wear them. XD
For all the crap I give Shark, I really do like him. A lot of sims created by EA feel hollow to me, but Shark isn't one of them. He has character and I'll definitely use him in a challenge again.

Thank you!  ;D My sims and I try to keep things interesting.

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 3.5 - Off-Limits
« Reply #110 on: January 02, 2020, 09:11:41 PM »
Hello everyone! I'm not dead! As I mentioned in my Four Immortal Sister's Challenge, some stuff happened in my life that took priority over simming. I should hopefully be posting regularly again, but who knows? Life is crazy.



It was time the Timeless family went on another vacation and earned me some more sweet, sweet points. They are behind this generation.
"Wasn't the whole point of our generation to be 'more relaxed?'"
Well yes...but I still love me some points.
"At least I'm not on fire right now."
Yeah! See, you're already looking on the bright side.



Dione, Shark, and Hestia headed to China and Anastos stayed home since there wasn't anything for him to do in China. The house is beautiful in the snow but...why do I have winter enabled in China? If I had to take a guess, it's something to do with the rules or me being too lazy to change it. More likely the latter than the former.



The Timeless family got right to work skilling. Dione worked on stocking up on friendship potions for future generations to come.



Hestia worked on her sculpting skill.



Shark worked on his martial arts skill.
"It's because I'm so awesome."
No, it's because I made you.



I don't tend to take my eyes off of what my sims are doing, but when I do, interesting things happen.
"Hey! Shark is actually attractive!"
"I know."
He's also off-limits.



"Of course he is. I know that. I'm just going to give him a friendly hug because he's my sister's whatever-he-is."



"It's okay to flirt with him though, right?"
No!
"You know, I did always find you more attractive than Hestia."



Dione decided to reply to his comment by throwing a snowball at him. I think things are going to be just fine.





Dione left Shark to his skilling for the night and tried out the time machine she had built. She rolled a few wishes for it and while she didn't unlock any outfits or discover anything useful, it did keep her busy as she was done with making potions.



Of course, things couldn't just remain peaceful as both Shark and Dione kept rolling wishes for one another. It was time to see where this disaster train was leading.
"A present? For me?"
"Yep! It's the moodlet manager that the Watcher will make you give me back in five minutes."
"This is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me!"
"I know."
"We really shouldn't be doing this."
"Why does it matter? I'm with your sister and five other people. If she hasn't noticed by this point, she's an idiot."
WOW.



"Alright, valid point."



Dione then decided to challenge Shark to a snowball fight. I'm guessing that's just how she expresses her affections? This whole situation is messed up.





Shark didn't seem to care.





Meanwhile, poor Hestia was actually being PRODUCTIVE and GOOD as she maxed out two different skills.



"I have this odd urge to chase Shark and Dione while wielding this chainsaw. I wonder why."



Shark, likely sensing Hestia's mood, decided to romantically stargaze with her in the snow.



As he literally did the same thing with Dione five minutes later, I'm pretty sure it didn't help much.



Awkward encounters became normal over the next few days as Shark would walk into a room to flirt with Dione and then cancel the action automatically when he saw Hestia. I have never seen anything like it before.



"So, would you two like to tell me why you both are avoiding me like the plague?"
"The Watcher has us skilling."
"She always does. What's going on?"
"I'm not sure. Ask the Watcher."
Shark, I hate you.



"I would just like you to know, Dione, that if Shark is making you uncomfortable then I have no problem having the Watcher lock him in a room with skill objects for the rest of his life."
"Awww?"
For some reason, Shark is in the background clapping. Maybe he actually thinks this situation is going to last.
Ha.

Well, I have officially reached the picture limit. Bye guys!
