I finally got caught up with the Sunbursts! It takes awhile when you start from 24 pages behind. Great story, and good luck with finishing it all up!

Thanks for the comment, Joria! I thought I would be bored with the Sunbursts because it's taking so long to play through this challenge, but it's taking so long that new EPs come out and keep things from getting boring!  ;D

Thanks for the comment, Rhoxi! It's always nice to have new readers. Thank you for the encouragement.

I always had this bookmarked and meant to catch up on all the updates I'd missed from the beginning. There was so many pages and I wanted to get it in one go. Got the time to do so today and I must say time well spent! This is a wonderful story, Lilygirl. :) I love how all your simmies look interesting and unique and just plain great. :)

Thanks for the comment, Ilessthan3TheSims. It's nice to hear that my Sunbursts are time well spent!

Sciks: Week 43

Another less than enthralling week at the Sunburst house but here are a few pics of the highlights. Sevinn spends all her free after school time with the horses. She lucks out one evening and the outdoor jumping course actually works! Well, half of the jumps do anyway. I guess jumping over two jumps is more exciting than the one we have at home. By the look on Sevinn's face I'm guessing some serious concentration is needed.



Lihua and I have had a rough time of it relationship-wise in my family. I lost all respect from the elders when I broke up with Caroline, and everyone seriously disliked Lihua for being the reason I broke up with Caroline. I've tried my best to rebuild my relationships and get the elders to give Lihua a chance but they all claim to be too busy with their own things to hang out with her. Or maybe they think having a great relationship with the last "spare" simply isn't worth the effort, I don't know. All I know is that even Sevinn doesn't have a friendship with her mother anymore. With her teen museum pieces done, I convince Sevinn to give the horses a rest and spend some time with her mother, she is way over 90 days old after all. It looks like fun is had by all!



Tuesday, at least I think it's Tuesday, is Sevinn's YA birthday. My baby is all grown up now. Sniff. We throw a small party at home with just the three of us. Wunn decides birthday cake is a good enough reason to stop fishing for a couple hours. A man's got to eat right?





Here she is all grown up and still in love with the colour purple, and her horses.



Sevinn's Graduation Ceremony follows the next day so we all head down to City Hall and celebrate. She is voted Class Valedictorian! That's my baby girl!





This is Dewey Cahill, the one and only classmate of Sevinn's. No need to get your hopes up though, Sevinn is committed to another male, namely Shadow, her horse.



We decide to actually have a party to celebrate Sevinn's graduation and we all head down to The Brightmore, recently renamed The Sciks Suns. Lihua tries out the new ride while Wunn and I hit up the dance floor.



Fyve goes skinny dipping in the hot tub on the other side of the club while Therie and Tu get their groove on.



And since Dewey was at City Hall with us and he didn't have any family there, we invite him out to the party as well. Looks like he's having a great time.



I'm not sure where Fhore or Sevinn are but it seems they escape the camera this time around.

This is what happens to elders that autonomously skinny dip at the local pool, one of us other elders feels compelled by an almost tangible force to head over to the pool ourselves and hide the discarded clothing. What a laugh!



P.S. For all the 'Glee' fans out there, this is the Sue Sylvester of the Sunbursts' Twinbrook.



Next Week: Will the Grim finally remember we have an over-aged elder spouse still hanging around? On second thought, hopefully not, as I am 90 days old as of Saturday and I'm still looking to reach level 10 of my Sports career. The Grim can stay where he is!

Can't believe you have a Sue Sylvester :)

Nice to see a post from the Sunburst's!!

Sciks: Week 44

This week is a crazy one although you wouldn't know it for the pictures. I start the week out older than 90 days and I still have to get my last promotion at work! I can feel the immortal elders breathing down my neck!

First, though, Sami comes by again and has a good sleep in her awesome bed. I miss my girl.



Monday I go to work and raise my performance bar to almost half. Tuesday I get to about 85%. It really sucks to not have the option to work hard at work! But I still have the game tomorrow, a win will get me my promotion, most definitely! It's only when I get to the game on Wednesday that I realize my performance bar does not fill during a game! That means, with tomorrow being my day off, the Grimm better be busy elsewhere until at least Saturday!

With my performance bar about 85% full, I invite my boss over on Thursday morning in hopes that this time she will grant me a promotion. Everything is going well until the Grimm shows up! There's no running from the inevitable now ...



Good-bye boss. I guess I'll just have to wait until tomorrow for my last promotion (and hope that the Grimm doesn't see me hiding behind the exercise machine).

The Grimm hangs around (I think maybe he feels like he's missing something) and Tu distracts him by asking the Grimm to pose for a sculpture.





I could kiss Tu's feet right about now but I won't.

Sevinn buys her property and building, the Training Grounds and Equestrian Center respectively. She expands the training grounds to include a longer race loop and more room for the jumps. She also puts in bathroom and eating facilities for the fans that come by and watch her training with Shelby.





Thursday I get my last promotion and am now a bonafide sports star!



I rush home from work to eat my ambrosia so I can receive my Deathflower from Wunn just in case the Grimm does come today. Ack! How is it even possible that I don't have 6 best friends??!! Oh for Pete's sake! So Thursday evening, instead of eating my ambrosia I'm running around town tracking down good friends to turn into best friends.

Friday morning ...



I have ambrosia for breakfast! I am now an Immortal man and will be passing things over to Sevinn next week.



Sciks Sunburst, Immortal, age 97. Yes, age 97!

Sevinn would like to share that this little guy showed up at the Training Grounds a day or so after she upgraded it to level 3. He's made himself at home there.



Next Week: Lihua and Shadow both have appointments with the Grimm, but will he come?

I hope that statue of Grimm never melts! Have you done that before?

Is that a custom pattern on Sciks's shirt when he's eating ambrosia?

Cutting it close! Now you can breathe... For now, anway! :D

I'll make a note to try and sculpt Grim once I feel like I can attempt a dynasty again. That's awesome! And congrats to Sciks!

I recently decided to read this whole dynasty through, and I'm pretty floored on how you were able to get so much original townie blood into the Sunburst family. I've spent weeks perfecting my method to ensure that about half the town gets into my dynasty's family, but I can only hope to have the success that you did.

The statue of the Grimm won't melt.

The pattern is here in the Swap Shop, it is one of Gheez's patterns.

And yes, it's very nice that the pressure is off! When I heard the Grimm music I panicked a little, until I realized that if it was one of my Sims the camera would pan to it. It sent my heart racing though.

Thanks! I was pretty lucky on how many townie relationships happened at the beginning and how many townies had kids/more kids. I've got an ace up my sleeve for Sevinn when she's ready but it's a secret for now.

It was for the first couple days and then I kind of forgot about it. I would have been so upset at the injustice if the Grimm had come for Sciks before Lihua, who is something like 115 days old. Leave it to gen6's spouse to hang around forever!  ???

Sevinn: Week 45

Hi everyone. This is my first week providing the updates from our family for your reading pleasure. I just want to state for the record: Thank-you Dad for finally getting your act together so that I can do the awesome things I'm doing with my life!

Since the household is full to the brim there's really no rush for me to get my "act together" other than to be better than my Dad. Although his example won't be hard to beat! I spend an afternoon singing karaoke with Wunn. It is a blast! ;D



We both love the colour purple so we match. Except that he's old and I'm definitely not.

I'm riding Shelby is a couple races today so Shadow is all alone when his appointment with the Grimm comes up. At least he has a townie Sim for company. I'm so sorry I wasn't there, buddy. :'(







I did go and pick up his tombstone though. Now I just have to find a great place to put it.

Now that Dad's retired, him and Mom keep throwing up wished left and right to be all lovey-dovey with one another. There relationship has been at like zero for weeks now.



One of the ghosts came out and haunted the weirdest thing ever!



Not the music box but the dancing mummy inside the music box! ???

Oh yes, now that there is a spot in the animal portion of the household, I have Shelby bred at the Equestrian Center. [I wanted Lihua to die so that I could breed Shadow and Shelby. Bah!] Sorry, sweetheart, twins is not happening, it's just not in the coding. although a second foal? Hmmm ... I'll have to do the math first, girl.



My Dad insisted I just had to include this picture; I have no idea why, it doesn't offer any real value to our story. Anybody have a catchy caption for this one? [I wish Metro was still running the caption contests, this picture would have been great!] It's my Dad and a paparazzi.



In the dusk of Twinbrook, in our front yard, a young foal is born. Everyone please meet Peeyacht Horse! He is the product of Shelby and a white stallion at the Eq. Center.



A close-up. We'll see him better in the morning.





Here he is in the daylight. Isn't he gorgeous?! I love the spotted coat! :D



In other news, Tu has a new girlfriend. This is Dusty Sylvester, the daughter of Sue Sylvester.



And my Mom and Dad go on another date. Honestly, those two are so weird!



Next week: Will the Grimm finally come for Lihua? Peeyacht grows up.

What a fun and bizarre update! Haunting the mummy in the music box? I have no idea what to caption that picture with the paparazzi and harvester. Too funny! I also like the Grim coming for the horse. I haven't actually played with the horses or riding skill yet, so I'd never seen it. Very cool.

I will update the first post as soon as I remember.  :P  Thanks for the reminder.

My nooboo is doing well most days. I'm currently trying to get her interested in crawling. She's quite happy to just sit and play with the carpet if that's the only thing she can reach.

When my camera panned to Shadow's Grimm appointment, I completely ignored my other Sims because I was curious about a horse death. It was pretty neat.

Sometimes nooboos hate to crawl, I actually have a cousin that half crawled, half walked on her hands and feet, and another refused, absolutely refused to ever be on his belly, he would cry whenever he accidentally flipped himself or fell over, so he never crawled....went straight to walking.
You're absolutely welcome for the reminder, it must be hard to remember when the information isn't at the very top and you flip to the last page so fast to update or reply to comments.  :)

RIP Shadow. D:

Oh my goodness, I need to play with the pets more just for cute foals like that.

I thought it was really sweet to see Tu have a girlfriend. She's no Zo, but whatever makes him happy.

So, apparently I've been so busy thinking I needed to play this Sim week so I could have an update to post only to realize I haven't updated the previous Sim week! That means, as I get the time this weekend, you guys get 2, yes 2, updates. And I have enough pictures for like 3-4 updates on my Misc story but my nooboo doesn't give me enough time to write one of those updates in one sitting so I keep having to reread and restart.

Since my husband is away for a couple more days I don't have to fight him for the computer, so, hopefully, I can get a couple updates up before he gets home.

Well, on with it then shall we. (Before the said nooboo decides she hates her swing too.)

~~~~~~~~~~

Sevinn: Week 46

So the upstairs landing gets another redo. We now have a pool table instead of the arcade games and a dominoes table. Four of the elders sit down for a game, something about "achievements" or some such nonsense. And when they all get a skill point in Logic, Fyve's unique supermax skill, the Dominoes table gets sold promptly! Fyve now has to find somewhere else to play her 4-player Dominoes games.



I spend time with my new baby, Peeyacht. He is so adorable!



Here's a full body picture of him after his adult birthday. You can see his super neat spotted coat! His mom is Shelby - cream with a white mane and tail, and his dad is an Equestrian Centre stud - white with a black mane and tail. He is an interesting half-and-half mix of both his parents.



I finally get impatient waiting for the Grimm to come for my Mom (don't get me wrong I love that my Mom is still alive) and in order to have the household space to adopt the 3 wild horses I need to supermax the riding skill, I saddle up and sell my Shelby. Good-bye girl, thank you for Peeyacht.



Peeyacht gets started on finishing maxing the racing and jumping skills at the pony grounds. He aged up with a couple points in jumping and level 7 or 8 of racing.



Tu spends time with his son, Leopoldo [something like that] before the kid grows up and heads off to school.



Outside the Equestrian Centre, I have my adult birthday. Remind me to get my hair done tomorrow. I suddenly find myself overly obsessed with my new wrinkles, the fact that I don't have a car, and a need for more expensive things in our house.



Tu invites Leopoldo over every day after school to spend time with his son and make sure his son gets his homework done.



I finally get lucky and am able to adopt my first wild horse. I then ride her over to the Equestrian Center and sell her to make room for the next one.



Oh, the elders? They have nothing better to do with their time so they laze around in the hot tub at the pool.



Me? I'm always busy with something riding related to get that skill supermaxed. I am now Horsewoman level 10! Hooray for me!



And that's the end of this week. Come back soon for the report on next week.

~~~~~~~~~~

[Time to rescue the nooboo from her swing and then go to the mall.]
