The family is so sweet! You’re doing great. To me, enjoying yourself is more important than the score. You get into the HOF regardless of the score, so just have fun with it.

Journal Entry: Continued Beginnings

So we've finally gotten done re-building and redesigning our humble lot. Loto found some great logs near by to create a fence around our place in effort to just create a better feeling of security- who knows if there other things out there you know?

Gia also began to figure out how to play the violin? Not sure where she found it- said she found it looking for seashells in the sand. Whatever keeps her occupied!

image310.jpg


One night Lulu & I were having a night swim when we saw something moving towards us in the water... As it got closer (which I don't know why we weren't completed scared out of our minds) we realized it was a PERSON!?!??!! What?!?! Who knew there were other people around here?

She swam up next to us and introduced herself and told us about a local village near by. Apparently it was made up of others who were found here on the island too and over the years they build up a little village. She explained that this side of the island has been completely secluded for sometime but she had gotten curious when she repeatedly saw smoke rising in this direction.

image306.jpg

We went back home and called a family meeting about this new realization (Loto & Gia were asleep). Lagi was very enthusiastic about it and Lulu was more hesitant. In the end, we decided to explore this other part of the island. Having more people around could be a good and a bad thing- I'm glad we have that fence up!
Maybe there will be some prospects for my children too there?

image309.jpg

The next day we set off in search of this other village and came upon a really nice park and will definitely be somewhere we come back too.

Then we finally made it to the village. We had just happened to stumble upon one of their village family nights.
We had so much fun getting to know people and learning about the culture they had fashioned together.

image315.jpg

I think this new Era of our family will be quite fun. Unfortunately I'm also growing old so pretty soon it will be time to hand the reigns off to another one of my children. I'm not sure who yet- but I think Lulu has great potential.

I love the way you tied in the new "village" of people!  This is such a fun way of looking at it all and hopefully there will be new Sims for all the children of those castaways.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Team Lulu!!  Yes.  She should take over!!!  She has great potential.  The Force is strong with this one!!
Lovely update and looking forward to seeing more interactions with the new villagers they've discovered and seeing if there is a young man even remotely worthy of darling Lulu  ;=)

@Joria Thanks! I'm really glad this story theme has worked out so far. I haven't worked out how to tie in the other tech eras yet though since Island life is pretty simple in general.
@PeregrineTook I'm in her boat too! And I REALLY hope there is a nice young man somewhere cause so far everyone is too old. Lol!

Journal Entry: Last Assignment

So I knew my time was coming to an end. My hair is gray and my skin is getting more and more wrinkly as the days wane on...
I knew all my children were going to be fine without me. They were already very self sufficient already. Lulu is throughly enjoying creating a low impact work out. She seems more a peace than anyone on this tiny island.

image401.jpg

Loto and I bonded with some routine morning fishing. I can see why Akamu loved this sport so much. It's quite rewarding!
As we were fishing we had a little talk about the future.


Me: "So, as you know dear...my days on this island are coming to an end. I want you to know that I've decided on who should be the heir of this Dynasty."
Loto" Mom, let me stop you right there. I don't want it- I just want to fish like dad and help around camp."
Me: "Well you made that easier for me. Haha"


image405.jpg

Meanwhile my sweet Gia also aged up into a beautiful teen. I think she definitely looks a lot like me.

image407.jpg

I also spoke to Lagi and told him he unfortunately was too old to carry the brunt of the work due to a little hick up with the last dynasty requirements.
Thankfully he understood though a little sad I think he sought solace with his sisters.

Lagi: " I mean I get I'm older- but I feel like I should have gotten it- I am the first born."
Lulu: " Well if she said no to you and Loto...I guess it's me or Gia next?"
Gia: " I mean I agree with Lagi, it should of been him...but if it's me I guess there's a good reason?"
Lulu: " Mother knows best right?"


image403.jpg

It's such a hard choice between all 4 of my wonderful children but I think I came to a conclusion... Lu and Gia seem to have the best chance to continue this dynasty. However, so far any prospects for any of my children to marry has been next to none due to the majority of the villagers we've met were too old...So instead of one heir- I chose two! Better to double our chances right?

image419 (2).jpg

I think both girls will do very well with this new role, now we just need to find at least one of them a husband!
Speaking of... I think Lulu may have found quite the catch- and I don't mean fish! I guess this means we will be joining in on more village activities soon.

image413 (2).jpg

We went down to the beach later and I started to feel a little weird...and then it hit me. This was my end.
I looked at my kids one last time and Lu agreed to take over the journal writing from now on.
Now I will be with my Akamu forever.

@PeregrineTook @oshizu @MarianT
Thanks guys!! I was sad to see Miri go as well- it's definitely more sad when the first generation dies in my opinion. :(

Journal Entry: New Day, Dark Night

It has been pretty hard living day to day without mom around. She always had a way to make you feel loved and appreciated. But now it's mine and Gia's turn to take on the load.

image556.jpg

After reading mom's last entry I saw where she had mentioned me meeting Henry...Well he has definitely been coming around more lately. It's been sort of hard to find time to practice some of my skills, but I think it'll all be worth it.

image539.jpg
image519.jpg

Lagi also decided to play the "dad" role and made sure he was a good guy.

image536.jpg

I think he won Lagi over because the next day he proposed! I said yes of course :)

image519.jpg

The next day we had a small little wedding in the nearby park. Gia did a wonderful job at using palm branches to make a lovely little archway for us.

image526.jpg

We also built us a tiny shack on the other side of the island to have a little bit of privacy and to celebrate our marriage.

image551.jpg

My garden had began to grow some beautiful flowers so I figured it would be a good idea to practice some of my flower arrangement skills. The ladies in the village really love them, so I think I'll continue to make new ones!

image549.jpg

Loto also caught some weird berry while fishing, and when I planted it... It definitely grew into something more "alive" than I was thinking. But so far whatever it is...seems to like me?

image548.jpg

One night I woke up to Loto shaking me awake. He told me that Lagi was missing. Loto, Henry, Gia and I began searching the island and couldn't find him. So we ended up searching the nearby waters to see if maybe he just went for a late night swim.
But we unfortunately found him too late. Lagi seemed to have went swimming and exhausted himself trying to swim back to the island.
We are completely heart broken, but at least he died doing something he loved to do. I'll miss him so much...

image552.jpg
image554.jpg

It's more quiet around the island now without my big brother around. We've suffered a lot of loss recent, but I think we might be adding another to the fold soon...turns out I'm pregnant!

image541.jpg



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Author's Note: I feel so bad! I literally had no idea Lagi was so exhausted that he could drown. I've never had a sim die that way- and it was pretty gruesome in my opinion.

Oh no!  Catching up and find Matua gone and that horrible drowning!  I never knew they could get exhausted like that and drown!  On the bright side, the pregnancy and Henry!  I'm hoping the rest of the tale doesn't have such things like the drowning!  (Death comes to all, sad but true, so Matua reached her end peacefully.)
Still loving this story.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

@Joria Yeah I had no idea either! I just randomly heard the death noise and saw all that going down before I had a chance to actually save him. I need to keep a better tabs on all the sims around the island it seems like. :(
