Grim leaving like an untimely death isn't the hallmark of a good sims wedding? At least it looks like he's a fine painter in his spare time with that apron.

I know, right? He left right before things got good too. Hahaha, he probably is! I'm surprised he has any free time at all.

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 2.10 - At Least There's Cake
« Reply #52 on: July 28, 2019, 09:41:42 PM »
Hello everyone! In the last chapter Cedrick asked for Spydon's blessing, Aries showed up, Hera was...Hera, and the Grim Reaper left before the wedding could begin. I honestly have been trying my best to make sure this generation isn't too long, but so much has happened that I just need to include. Buckle up, this is going to be a long generation!



"GET HERE, SON. THE WEDDING IS STARTING. WE GOT TO GET THEM MARRIED BEFORE HE RUNS."
Ace didn't show up for the actual ceremony. Boo.



Most of the people who were invited to the wedding left. The only two people who stayed were Cedrick's brother and some random pregnant woman. Lucky Palms has also been replaced by mostly pudding sims. It's so early in the dynasty that it's ridiculous. I can't believe Story Progression has failed me.



Now it's finally, FINALLY time for these two to get married.
"With this ring I pledge my undying love."



"With this ring I chain you to me forever. Oh, and I love you."
"Awww. It's so shiny!"



Look at these happy weirdos. This is not a couple that should work, but surprisingly does. Also, if the vows sound familiar, it's because I got inspiration from Corpse Bride...except these vows are less romantic and more disturbing.



Aww, heck yeah. I want large tombstones.
Hattie also showed up to watch the wedding. I love that dog more than I should.



"Great, those two idiots are married now. Where's the cake?"
An important question.



Spydon, what are you doing?
"I'm throwing rice."
At the alchemy shelf?
"Yes."
Whatever makes you happy, I guess.



OH LOOK WHO FINALLY SHOWED UP.
"I had work!"



Apparently Hera confessed to watching Cedrick sleep when I wasn't looking. Yeah, I can see Hera doing that, but why is this interaction even in the game? I get a feeling it's because of Twilight, but I could have lived without it existing.



The important thing was that it was time for cake. Cedrick started crying...probably realizing what he was getting in to.
"I'm just going to pretend he's not doing that."
Yeah, me too.



Cake fixes everything.



Remember that random pregnant lady that was invited to the wedding? Apparently it was time to go into labor.
"This is the PERFECT time to play my guitar."
Ace, no.



"Son, this is NOT the time."
"JUST LOVE ME FATHER."
This wedding is going terribly.



"At least there's cake."
True. At least there's cake.



Cedrick is looking dapper in his tuxedo.
"I can't believe I married the most beautiful woman in the world."
You were crying.
"I married the most beautiful woman in the world."
Sweet gesture, but I'm not sure I believe that's why you were crying.



"Hey Ace, move back in. The Watcher wants to fix your love life."
"Shouldn't we help that woman in labor?"
"Nah, I'm sure she'll figure something out."
The woman did eventually go to the hospital.



Diddy, Ace's cat, moved in when Ace did. I absolutely adore him, and he's on the family tree.



Back to speaking about Ace's love life though. It's horrible. I'm not even sure how he managed to get in the negative with his fiancee.



It was time for him to break up with her.
"Are you sure this is wise?"
Yeah, you guys are skipping town soon anyways.
"We are?"
Yes.
The rules don't really deal with moving towns, but I'm only in generation two and it looks like in order to stay in Lucky Palms and get interesting genetics, the Timeless family will be marrying NPCs. As I don't want that and the most important thing for me in this challenge is to have fun, it's time to move towns.



Cedrick and Hera seem to be back to their normal selves after the wedding. Weddings are stressful, even the best ones.



On that note, it was time for the Timeless family to move.



It's sad to see the first purple house go, but it's time.

I'll see you guys in the next town. Bye guys!

Yeah I noticed the lack of townie breeding the one time I played on a short lifespan. Wasn't a short dynasty at all, but I ended up starting pregnancies with MasterController, and maybe it's shady rules-wise but good faces must prevail instead!

The world is wide open for them now!

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 2.11 - Back from the Dead
« Reply #54 on: July 29, 2019, 05:35:01 PM »
Hi guys! In the last chapter Hera and Cedrick got married, Ace moved back in with Diddy, and the Timeless family left Lucky Palms for good.



The Timeless family has officially moved to Twinbrook! My friend Nevermore recommended it to me and as I haven't played much in it, so it's pretty much a whole new town for me! I moved the Timeless family into a house I built a few years ago and have been dying to use. I redecorated it to fit them too. I know, I know that the rules specify to start on an empty dynasty lot, but this house took me months to build and is perfect for the Timeless family, and they had the money for it.



I'm ridiculously happy with how it turned out. I knocked down a ton of walls.
This is the first floor of the house.



This is the second floor of the house. It's not as heavily decorated as my houses usually are. I wanted to go for practicability.



This is the greenhouse. I put Aries's grave by it because Spydon will likely spend most of his time there. I'll be moving all the graves to a specific lot made for them later.



Everyone settled in surprisingly well. Hattie and Diddy made introductions to one another.



Cedrick took care of the twins.



Hera worked on her alchemy skill. Ace played his guitar and Arius painted, though it's not shown.



Spydon, however? He was working on Ace's love life.
"I'm resurrecting people from the dead."
He's resurrecting people from the dead.



Spydon resurrected Macy Clay from the dead first. She shares two of the same traits as Ace does.



Macy isn't conventionally beautiful, but I love how unique she looks.



It was time for Spydon to resurrect yet another sim.



Next up was Lacy Darer, who looks exactly like Macy Clay.



"I never get any thanks. Hmph."
Thank you, Spydon.
"I don't want thanks from you."



One quick phone call from Spydon and Macy Clay came over. Lacy Darer on the other hand, seems to have disappeared. :(



"He's attractive and from a dynasty family! Woo!"
Well, that's definitely a good sign.



There was no time for a regular whirlwind romance, so a jar of friendship had to do.



"You know...I feel like we are best friends now."
"We are, uh, best friends. You should move in."
"Okay!"



Macy got a makeover which I'm happy with. Her favorite color is grey, so the majority of her outfits are grey.



Her Lifetime Wish is to be a Home Design Hotshot, which will likely will never be completed, but I wanted to give her a good head start skill-wise anyways.



Diddy was busy guarding the fish. It was quite suspicious.





Spydon was being a loving grandfather and managed to befriend Anastos.



It was time for Anastos to age up!



He gained the loves the heat trait to add to disciplined and good. I forgot to add purple to his outfits, but he's only a child for two days. Oh well.

Anyways, that's the end of the chapter! Bye guys.

Ah, what we must do in the name of sim genetics! I didn't think of doing that...hmm.

It is indeed!  ;D

Resurrecting ghosts is also fair game if you ask me. ;) I adore Macy. She had a life as an undead lesbian in my immortal dynasty (in love with a distant descendant of her supposed ex-husband) and I love every life she gets.

Twinbrook is fun! I can only hope for original townie babies to proliferate but the town performs as well as one can under the stress of a few generations.

I miss this many chapters... Aries, the most beautiful flame widow of awesomeness, dies. Hera has babies! :o
AND they move into a gorgeous new house. This challenge has everything. Aries, Spydon, and your amazing house designs!
YAY! I got a mention! :D I love Twinbrook so much. Wait... I recognise that lot. I'll have to check my game to make sure, but I think that is on Puddlewick Drive.

Man, I would have loved to see/read that! Macy is a wonderful sim. I love how unique her genetics are.

I hope so too. I should really consider pollinators, but the house is chaotic as it is. Maybe next generation.

I just caught up on over a month's worth of posts in this story, and oh how I wish I'd caught up sooner! This story is absolutely bonkers in the best way. I love it so much.

Awwww! Thank you! The Timeless family is...insane. I love them, but they're nuts and it makes them so much fun to play.

It's been crazy. I did not expect Aries to pass away when she did, but I guess it was her time.  :'(
Aww, thanks Nev! I have played ahead a lot (again) so I hope I can keep the pace going story-wise.
I'm 90% sure that's the lot! It's the one across from the karaoke bar.  ;D

I'm not sure where the Karaoke bar is, as I've never had Ambitions and Showtime installed together. But, if your lot is where the empty six bedroom mansion called Willow Manor usually stands, the Timeless family live opposite the Snowes! :D The Snowes live at 16 Puddlewick Drive. How cool is that? If our Timelesses and Snowes were in the same save, they would be neighbours.

Keep the chapters coming! The more the awesomer.

At least Aries lived a good life with Spydon. :D

It is! Man, can you imagine them as neighbors? I can just imagine Spydon and Jareth trying to outdo each other on crazy schemes while Aries laughs manically and Wilhemnia looks on, concerned. It would be hilarious!

Absolutely!

She did. She was extremely happy all the time. It wasn't what I expected, but it was heartwarming.

-Spydon!! Yes!!
-Aries!! No!!
-Generation three can't even talk yet and they're already shaping up to be something special. Oh man. Mpart, your Sims always manage to be deliciously entertaining.

This comment made me burst out laughing. It's beautiful.

Jim was the true hero of this dynasty. He only lived for three or four days, but he impacted so many lives.
Hattie is adorable. When the rest are too crazy, I just go check on Hattie. It's wonderful.
Ah, that chapter. I think that's the only accurate way to sum it up. XD
Why thank you! I tend to get bored easily and that makes things more interesting. Heh.

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 2.12 - Say Please
« Reply #64 on: August 12, 2019, 04:41:14 PM »
It's been a while since a chapter has been posted and I have two words to explain why: baby birds. They are my pride and joy and are the definition of chaos.
Anyways, last chapter the Timeless family moved to Twinbrook, Spydon brought Macy Clay and Lacy Darer back from the dead, Macy moved in, and Anastos aged up.



I was experiencing a bit of lag, so I decided to reset the town. My game wouldn't be able to function without NRaas mods, I swear.



It was time for operation Ace-Get-Out-But-Have-A-Good-Love-Life-And-Give-Me-Babies to enter the next phase.



Macy seemed to agree, thankfully.
"Why the long mission name, strange voice in the sky?"
There isn't really a way to sum it up.
"Ah."



I'm just happy things went surprisingly well.



One more kiss and Macy and Ace went steady.
Now, get out.
"Thanks...?"
You're welcome, Ace. You can visit any time.
"Wow, thank you. That was surprisingly nice-"
-you just have to bring Macey along.



Ace arranged for them to move into their new home as I reread the rules and realized I had made a little, little mistake.
You see, I gave Ace fertility treatment in hopes that Story Progression would give him a big family. That specific reward is banned for obvious reasons and I should have known better. Since it isn't a mistake in my opinion that I should end this challenge over, and because it was for a spare that moved out versus an heir or heiress, I'm only going to be deducting one point because of it. All in all though, the most important thing for me in this challenge is to have fun, and I am! It's been a blast and I would hate to end it. If anyone thinks it's too lenient, I'll deduct more points.



Hera has taken up sculpting because...that's a thing needed.
"You really don't remember why you made me sculpt, do you?"
Maybe you had a wish about it?
"Maybe. Maybe not. I'm not telling you. Only the turtles in the next door pond know, and they know everything."
It will remain a mystery then.
"Hmph."



Cedrick and Hera are doing well for...Cedrick and Hera. They're smitten with each other and Cedrick hasn't run away yet.
"I'll never run away from my queen."
"Good answer."



The most important birthday took place as Hattie is aging up to an elder!





The sparkles hit, but she still looks the same to me; absolutely and utterly adorable.



Everyone was clapping excitedly for Hattie-as they should-but Arius was the most enthusiastic of them all.
"It's actually because it's my birthday too, Watcher."
Oh.



"Wait! I don't want to become old!"
What do you define as old? You'll only be middle-aged.



"Ugh. I'm different."
You literally didn't change at all. Not even your eyebrows changed.
"I have wrinkles!"
Oh boy, it's midlife crisis time.
"No, no! It's younglife crisis time! YOUNG!"
Sighs.



Cedrick decided to test some experimental medicine out for research purposes. I really don't know how to feel about the size of that pill.



Here's a picture of Hattie because we all need and love her.



The day after Ace and Macy moved out, they got engaged! I'm so happy things are going swimmingly.



Arius also managed to complete his Lifetime Wish when he wasn't freaking out because of his midlife crisis. Things seem to finally be calming down.



Game: You're funny.
RUN SPYDON, RUN!
"THEY'RE ATTACKING ME! THIS IS HOW I DIE!"
You're too old to die! Now RUN!



Spydon made it into the house safely and painted for ten minutes before he started floating.
"Ah sh-"



"Your time has come...unless you got any more flowers. Do you have any more flowers?"
"No. My Watcher won't let me grow them anymore."
"Oh. That's a shame. Into the grave you go, Spydon Timeless."



"Wait! I'm not ready to die!"
"What?"
What?
"I have done nothing but brood and garden after Aries died! She's going to be LIVID!"
"Are you insane? Aries Amarantha has been waiting for you. JUST. GET. IN. THE. GRAVE."
"Say please."
So Grim had enough of Spydon's sass and Spydon was forced into his grave. It may not have been the most graceful of ways to go...or the most dignified, but I get a feeling Aries is proud of him for being so difficult. He also lived an extremely long life when it comes to a short dynasty sim. It was time for him to go.
RIP Spydon. You were one of my favorite founders ever and you likely have a line of ex-girlfriends waiting to kill you again. If I had enough picture space I would throw in some pictures of you in your younger days, but sadly it can not be.



"Boo! This whole family sucks!"
WAY TO BE INSENSITIVE, GRIM.



At least Spydon is back with Aries. :'(



Generation one was a mess. It was a beautiful, chaotic mess. The portraits of Aries and Spydon may be a 6/10 but both of them were a 10/10. Even though Hera has been a heiress for much longer chapter-wise than Spydon, I feel like the era of generation one has officially closed.

That's the end of this chapter! I didn't want to leave it on a sad note, but it was just meant to be. I hope everyone is having a good morning/afternoon/evening! :)

Welcome back lovely readers! In the last chapter Macey and Ace became a couple and then promptly moved out. Hattie and Arius aged up, and Spydon died.  :'(



This chapter has a LOT of birthdays. Naturally, we start with Hera's elder birthday.
"My WHAT?"



Your elder birthday. Congratulations!
"I will destroy everything you lo-"
-Yeah, yeah. I've heard it all.



It was then time for the twins's birthdays! Hestia went first. Her favorite color is yellow, but I'm going to try and do more of a golden/purple color scheme.



Dione takes the most after her mother. Her favorite color is green, which works fantastically with purple. Both of the girls are adorable.



It wasn't time for the birthdays to end though. Cedrick's elder birthday was next.
"What are these sparkles?"



"Haha, you're old!"
"Darling, you're old too!"





Things could have gone smoother, but they didn't necessarily go badly. Here's Hestia with both of her parents. She's mostly an equal mix of them except Hera's genetics win out a little more than Cedrick's do.



Here's a cute picture of Dione for no other reason than she's being cute. Prepare for the toddler spam!







These two are way too adorable. Way too adorable.



Don't worry everyone, in light of the twins becoming toddlers, Hattie is still getting all the love and attention she could ever need.



She may dig holes in the yard, but she's just trying to be productive like the rest of the household, darn it!



Anastos is also doing well...sort of. He was close to Spydon. I won't lie, he's boring. I know it's harsh, and I feel kind of bad for skipping over him so much, but his childhood is just not interesting at all.
"You don't love me?"
Now I never said that. There's a difference between boring and unlovable. You just happen to fit into the first category.



Hera is taking Spydon's death the hardest.  :'(



Everything sucks right now, but at least this new gnome showed up!
*Throws confetti*



Oh and he's...mourning Spydon and Aries.
Aww.



Also look who aged up is an officially much more interesting! Anastos gained the night owl trait along with disciplined, good, and loves the heat. Still not the most interesting sim, but hey, at least he's not the Cedrick clone I thought he was! He has Hera's face and fabulous hair.
"Gee, does nothing else matter to you except my genetics?"
Yes.



Time to max the logic skill, Anastos!
"I hate you."
No, you lovingly dislike me. There's a difference.
"What? That doesn't make any sense!"
Yeah...that's how things roll around here.



Anastos stopped skilling for a minute which was frustrating....



....because he was getting abducted by aliens.
"Help, Watcher! Help!"
Oh NOW you like me?



While Anastos was getting abducted by aliens, I got a notification from story progression that Ace and Macey had kids!
They had triplets. Wow. Their names are Harmony, Rayne, and Brittany. Not bad names, story progression. Not bad at all.

That's the end of chapter! Bye guys!

So I actually made the same mistake very recently in my short dynasty...I purchased the Fertility Treatment reward for one of my heirs, completely forgetting that it's banned. I decided not to end the dynasty over it because (a) I didn't want to end the dynasty, and anyway, the most important thing is to have fun, as you say, and (b) the treatment didn't even work and my sim only had one baby. I think deducting one point for the mistake is fair.

On a happier note, the twins are completely adorable and I'm excited to see them grow up! I'll also be very curious to see how Ace's triplets turn out.

Wow, elders already. I wasn't prepared! Hestia and Dione are adorable! Anastos is aging up very nicely. SP used Harmony in my Farmacy too for the Dean's youngest daughter, which surprised me as since I've gotten the baby naming mod which lets me choose all the baby names around town, I've barely had to choose any! Go figure. And I used Rayne for my active families' 2nd daughter. So cool that we have some of the same names in our games. :)

Hera is old! It's odd to be honest. Her and Aries being old will always be strange to me.
She does have some interesting insights indeed.  ;)

I decided not to end the dynasty over it because (a) I didn't want to end the dynasty, and anyway, the most important thing is to have fun, as you say, and (b) the treatment didn't even work and my sim only had one baby. I think deducting one point for the mistake is fair.

On a happier note, the twins are completely adorable and I'm excited to see them grow up! I'll also be very curious to see how Ace's triplets turn out.

It happens. It's also one of those rewards that is encouraged a lot in other challenges and the rules never specifically say that you automatically fail the challenge if you break a rule. The Four Immortal Sister's Challenge for example, there are several instances where you can fail the challenge and it is directly said. I think the Short Dynasty Challenge was created to be laid-back and having fun is the most important thing. Plus in your case if it didn't even work...I wouldn't deduct points at all. The game treated it like your sims didn't have fertility treatment, and I would do the same. Anyways, that's just my opinion!

Wow, elders already. I wasn't prepared! Hestia and Dione are adorable! Anastos is aging up very nicely. SP used Harmony in my Farmacy too for the Dean's youngest daughter, which surprised me as since I've gotten the baby naming mod which lets me choose all the baby names around town, I've barely had to choose any! Go figure. And I used Rayne for my active families' 2nd daughter. So cool that we have some of the same names in our games. :)

This chapter was crazy. Nearly everyone aged up! There's a mod that allows you to choose all the baby names around town? Huh, that's neat!
It is cool. What are the odds?  ;D

The Timeless Short Dynasty - Chapter 2.14 - Who Knows With Hera?
« Reply #72 on: August 17, 2019, 10:39:13 PM »
Hi guys! In the last chapter everyone aged up but Arius, and Anastos got abducted by aliens. Just another normal day in the Timeless household.



I forgot to mention in the last chapter that Hera maxed the alchemy skill! Go Hera!





It's time for birthdays again! These two just aged up, but that's the way of short dynasties I suppose.



Hestia aged up with the vehicle enthusiast trait to add to artistic and hates the outdoors.



Dione gained the eccentric trait to add to friendly and perceptive.



Dione wants to learn the alchemy skill, so she's going to be chained to the alchemy table. Forever.
"Forever?"
Forever.



Hestia is stuck playing chess with Anastos until he maxes it.
"I still hate you, Watcher."
Thanks, Anastos.



Look, Spydon showed up!
"So...how's things going with being dead and all."
"Are you treating my daughter right?"
"Yes sir."
"Then things are going fine."



Dione tried to skip school to work on her alchemy skill and was unsuccessful.
"What are you doing? Your education is important!"
"What? Why? I'm going to be spending the rest of my life skilling!"
Wow. So much sass.



The scolding destroyed their already low relationship. Hera wouldn't even except a hug from Dione.  :(



Hera and Dione both rolled wishes to fix that, so Hera was right on it.



One friendship elixir later and things were much better.
"I'm sorry for skipping school, momma."
"It's okay, little goose. Your sass was almost as good as mine."



"Can I please, please be out of trouble now?"
"Hmm...."



"Please, please, please!"
"Oh, alright. "
Awwww. That was odd, but touching.



Cedrick had an opportunity from work to meet more sims.
That he did.
"She's pretty...."
You're married, buddy.
"...right, right."



Things went a little more smoothly after Cedrick's meeting with the first woman and he completed the opportunity



Luckily for him, Hera never suspected a thing or maybe she did. Who knows with Hera?



The fish all died again. :( RIP Beatrice the Deathfish and Ixon the Koi Fish.



Anastos started learning the sculpting skill. The goal is for him to max it before Hestia becomes a young adult since he has already maxed logic already.



Speaking of Hestia, it's her teenage birthday already!



She gains the unlucky trait to add to hates the outdoors, artistic, and vehicle enthusiast. She's also stunning which seems to be a requirement for all Timeless spawn.



This requirement seems to confuse Hattie as much as it confuses me.



Dione's birthday is next! Man, things sure do fly by in a short dynasty.



Dione gets the loner trait to add to perceptive, friendly, and eccentric. She's perfect for Twinbook and the game has been kind to her. She also reminds me a lot of Aries.

That's all I have for you guys today. I hope you enjoyed it. Bye!

Wow, the girls are drop-dead gorgeous. Dione looks like she popped right out of an '80s chick flick or something.

:O Hestia is gorgeous! The Timelesses certainly know how to make beautiful babies.
