0.1-Abducting...I Mean...Finding the Founder
« Reply #2 on: December 19, 2019, 04:23:36 PM »
On a quiet day in Del Sol Valley, a hapless Sim is about to be abducted...



Vanessa:  (sigh) What a great movie that was.  Maybe someday I'll get my big break and get to be a star.
*knock at the door*
Vanessa:  Well, can't imagine that's the big break, but maybe it's some Scouts here to sell cookies!  Hope they still have some Skinny Minties!



Vanessa:  Hello?
(Mysterious and extremely handsome bald guy):  Oh, it's not hello, it's more like hi!
Vanessa:  Ummm, can I help you?



(Mysterious and extremely handsome bald guy who is now unshockingly revealed to be Pippin):  It's more like I can help you!  You, Vanessa Jeong, have been chosen...
Vanessa:  To be the lead in a movie?!?!?
Pippin:  Umm, no.  To be the founder of a dynasty.  But we can see about doing that whole...movie thing later.  Sound like a deal?
Vanessa:  Deal, but you really want a low level actress as founder of a dynasty?  It can't be my fame, so are you just after me for my looks?
Pippin:  I mean, you do have that awesome hair.
Vanessa:  Yeah, I'd say I'm a 10!



Pippin:  Wow!  I'm liking that self-confidence!
Vanessa:  Eh, it's a 10 on a scale of 50, so...
Pippin:  Oh.  In that case, it's makeover time!!  I took the liberty of laying out your new wardrobe in your room and there are instructions on how to restyle your hair.



Vanessa:  So...you were in my room?
Pippin:  Being helpful!
Vanessa:  That's just weird.
Pippin:  Watcher magic!
Vanessa:  And creepy.
Pippin:  …magic?
Vanessa:  K.  Gimme a minute.
And after significantly longer than a minute...



Pippin:  Wow!  My sense of fashion is amazing!  You look great!
Vanessa:  Yeah, I'm a solid 12 now!  Maybe a 13 if the lighting's bad enough.
Pippin:  We've really got to work on that self esteem...
Vanessa:  Oh!  Hold on, I'm getting a message.  It might be my agent.
Pippin:  Well, actually...



Vanessa:  My new lot is ready?  What new lot?
Pippin:  Yeah, did I forget to mention the starting on an empty lot with minimal funds part?



Vanessa:  Is it too late to back out?
Pippin:  Too late!  You already agreed!  We have a verbal contract, baby! But don't worry, I'll even be in-world to support you...from the comfort of an actual home.  With furniture.  And a fridge stocked with food.  And a TV.  And...
And with that questionable encouragement, our founder begins her epic quest to complete her Power of 10 Dynasty.



Vanessa:  And it begins in the junk yard in the ghetto.  Awesome.
Pippin:  And there's a bookshelf.  And the sofa is so comfy!
Vanessa:  (sigh)

ROFL! I love that mysterious and extremely handsome bald guy!
For a second, I wondered if he would be your founder who would then proceed to woo Vanessa Jeong. o.O
Soooo.... Pippin lives in his comfy crib in a copy of your legit dynasty file?

I have never played Get Famous so I'm unfamiliar with DSV premade sims, the fame system, and all that.
So, I'm ready to be schooled, Watcher!
I thought perhaps with the family name of Jeong that the founder might become a Kpop idol....
Bring on the zany humor and fun!!!

P.S. Post-makeover Vanessa looks gorgeous!

Haha, no, I'm not trying to be the founder.  Maybe I should have, but didn't go that route...this time, at least ;=)
Yeah, I think playing with the fame system and such will be good fun, but I'm not sure I'll really teach much about how it works so much as fumble my way through it awkwardly!
Thanks for the comment about her makeover!  I was super pleased with how it went and glad to hear that she has won your approval  :=)

Good to see that Pippin is back! And Vanessa will make a lovely founder.
Glad to be back!  Yeah, Vanessa is rather pretty and I'm quite excited to see how her genes carry through the next 9 generations!

Pippin gets forever closer to founding a dynasty for real by himself...one day I guess. Or sooner if there's a twist ahead.
Hmm, maybe I'll Simself it for the next dynasty attempt ;=)
Glad to have you reading along and I hope you enjoy the silliness!

Not Getting Any Jeonger, 1.1--The Up and Coming Star
« Reply #7 on: December 21, 2019, 07:30:08 PM »
We return to an empty, desolate, unattractive, wasteland of a...
Vanessa:  Yep, think they get it.



But, being snarky is my job!
Vanessa:  Oh no, you nailed it, I just need to actually get something done today instead of spending the entire day listening to snide commentary.
I just...
Vanessa:  K, gonna find an odd job now.



Vanessa:  Huh, some loser is too lazy to go pick up his own fast food.  That sounds easy enough.  Nessy to the rescue!!!



Pippin:  Umm, with a build-up like that, shouldn't you be running to the rescue?
Vanessa:  Well, I mean, walking is basically slow motion running, and isn't that more dramatic?
And lazy?
Vanessa:  Can it, snark box!
...
Pippin:  ...
Vanessa: ...
Pippin: ...
Vanessa:  ...
Pippin:  I think maybe we need the snark box.
Vanessa:  (sigh) Fine.
And having completed her first odd job, Vanessa...
Vanessa:  Nessy.
Pippin:  Nessy?
Vanessa:  It's cute!
And the nickname for the Loch Ness Monster.
Vanessa:  Keep it up, snark box, and you'll see what a monster I can be!
Nessy, our glorious founder, finds her next odd job looking for frogs by the waterfall!
Vanessa Nessy:  Better.  Now, let's go swimming...I guess...



Pippin:  You know, since you're all dressed up in that lovely swimwear, maybe you should go hubby hunting now?  In fact, I already picked him out for you!
Nessy:  You know, Pippin, I looked up "the literal worst" in the dictionary and it was just a picture of you.
Pippin:  ...that's harsh.



Nessy:  Well, you only took me to the completely wrong waterfall, but we got it sorted and the frog is delivered and snark box never bothered to mention that I got an audition lined up.
And the glorious Nessy lined up an audition for the next morning.
Nessy:  That's right I did!
Pippin:  Now let's get you started making those 10 good friends!



Mortimer:  Well, hello, pretty lady!
Nessy:  Yeah, creepy Mort's off the list. 
Zoe:  I get to be your friend, though?
Nessy:  Yeah, you're not creepy and you're camera-friendly.
Zoe:  Thanks, I guess.  I mean, as long as I get screen time and...
Nessy:  Okay, that's enough, camera hog.  Oooo, who's the muscly guy?



Marcus:  Hi, I'm Marcus Flex!
Nessy:  Seriously?  The muscly guy is named Flex?  That's delightfully silly.  You're on the list, Flex!
Marcus:  Actually, I go by Marcus.
Nessy:  Not anymore!  Now let's hip bump to satisfy my whim!



Pippin:  Huh, looks like Paolo Rocco's grandpa is here doing paparazzi stuff.



And after spending the requisite 2 hours on that lot, Nessy heads home to sleep.
Nessy:  Wait, home?  Like to a house?!?!?



Nessy:  Ah, my humble abode!  Accent on humble.



Pippin:  Look!  It's the house!  I mean, it's not as nice as my house, but it has the stuff you need and keeps you out of the sun or whatever.
And so, our delightful and kind founder gets a good night's sleep and arises ready to go nail that audition!



Nessy:  Showing me off in my sleepwear now, Pippin?
Pippin:  Hey, I'm proud of the makeover I gave you, okay?
Nessy:  Whatever.
And after surprising absolutely no one by succeeding in her audition, the beautiful and talented Nessy heads off to another community lot.
Nessy:  Mildly overdoing it with the sucking up, but I think I can handle it.  Now, off to a spot for up and coming stars like me!
Pippin:  You've gotten a small role in a commercial, so...
Nessy:  Up.  And.  Coming.  STAR!
Pippin:  Yes, ma'am.
Nessy:  Now, hello, my public, I...oh my!



Nessy:  It's Octavia Moon!  She's so gorgeous!!
Paolo Rocca's Grandpa:  Yeah she is!



Nessy:  Hello, Miss Octavia ma'am, I'm a really big fan and your acting in Mission Improbable was so amazingly awesome that it was great and I...you're so pretty and...stuff...and you were just so...great.
Octavia:  Well, aren't you just the cutest little thing?
Nessy:  Eh, I'd say I'm about a 12 out of 50.
Octavia:  More like a legit 50.
Nessy:  (blushing) Thanks, and if it's not being too bold, you're a 96 out of 50.



Octavia:  Why, thank you!
Pippin:  Wait, are you flirting with that married big name actress who already has a child?!?!?
Nessy:  Hey, I've only got so many options for socials...but she seems to like it.
Octavia:  Yeah I do!
And after returning to her home for some rest, our heroine heads out...to Orchid-A-Go-Go again.



Octavia:  Sweetie!  You came back!
Nessy:  Well, I guess you're just irresistable.
Octavia:  You flatterer!
Pippin:  This...you can't...
Nessy:  Can and doing!



Pippin:  Good friend.  Just supposed to be making good friends!
Nessy:  Oh, we're becoming very good friends!
Pippin:  With a pink romantic interest bar.
Nessy:  Good friends with benefits sounds fine to me!
Octavia:  I'm in!
Pippin:  (facepalm)



Nessy:  Don't worry, Octavia, I'm sure whatever loser Pippin picked as my husband will be able to deal with us being together.
Octavia:  I mean, that's fair.  Mine has to deal with it, so...
Morgan:  Seriously, Pippin?  You went with this train wreck and never even considered me as the founder?
Pippin:  ...I am so sorry.
And with a nickname in place, some requirements knocked out, and a complicated relationship status, we bring a close to the first installment of The Not Getting Any Jeonger Dynasty.
Nessy: And...?
(gulp) And Nessy is super talented and pretty!
Nessy:  Up and coming star, baby!

Pippin and Nessy make a pretty pair of snark boxes, if you ask me.  ;D
They are hilarious together.

Hmmmh, so Nessy's a bro....
Will she be one who enjoys watching sports TV with a bro hubby? 
Only time will tell, I guess. :/

I was wondering why Nessy's house had that narrow space beyond the master bedroom.
Is that a future hallway for expanding the house later?

See? I'm waiting patiently and not even asking for the rest of Nessy's traits.

She's not a bro, she just got the energized moodlet, so the hip bump whim popped up.  I figured that would be one more off the list, so why not go for it?
The mysterious space will be explained!!!  In the next update, actually.
I'm glad you're enjoying the exchanges between Nessy and Pippin (well, me, I guess).  And on the subject of exchanges, I'd actually planned on knocking out an embarrassed whim by having her flirt with Octavia, and instead, they were both totally on board with the flirty exchange!  Totally took my writing in a different direction, but I suppose that's nothing new.  I just love letting my Sims be whoever they choose to be  ;=)

Love your founder. Great story.

Rachel
Thanks!!  Glad to have you following along and rather enjoy the funny coincidence that we both came back to the forum around the same time!

Not Getting Any Jeonger, 1.2--The Comical but Helpful Schmuck
« Reply #11 on: December 23, 2019, 10:24:32 AM »
When last we'd left the glorious and delightful Nessy, she was doing everything perfectly.
Nessy:  I like this narrator.  He's very accurate.
Pippin:  And not at all helpful.  You're way off course and we need to get things straightened out.
Nessy:  Fine, I'm coming over.



Pippin:  Wait, what?  But my show's on!



Nessy:  Really?  Your show is more important than your only watched Sim?  And you really do have a nicer house than me.
Pippin:  At the moment.  Now, can you wait until I finish this episode of The Urbs?
Nessy:  Nope!
And with that, the delightful Nessy alights like a graceful eagle majestically staking her claim on a space on the couch.



Pippin:  Alright, the narrator no longer gets to be part of this discussion.
Nessy:  I'm willing to marry the Sim you've picked.
Pippin:  No, you have to...wait, what?



Nessy:  Yeah, I mean, I can't very well have a child with Octavia since she has a child and that would immediately end my dynasty.
Pippin:  Right, so you're ending the relationship with...
Nessy:  So I'm going to stay with her romantically, but very unromantically have a baby with whatever schmuck you've chosen!
Pippin:  ...why are you like this?
Nessy:  You mean awesome?  Just blessed I suppose, right, Narrator?
Indeed, Nessy.  Indeed!  And with that, our beloved founder heads off to meet the aforementioned schmuck.



Nessy:  Ah, down-on-his-luck, struggling comic?  That seems about right.  Just after him for the genetics, Pippin?
Pippin:  Still trying to watch my show!



Nessy:  Oh great.  The schmuck is just another loser watching The Urbs.
Johnny:  Seriously, you were on a break!  Jut give it up, Michelle!



Nessy:  Hello?  Loser?
Johnny:  AHH!!  Oh.  You startled me.  Sorry.  And you are...?
Nessy:  Nessy.  Pippin sent me to...
Johnny:  Ah, another Pippin dynasty?  I'm assuming you're recruiting me as a pollinator?
Nessy:  No, I...actually, kind of yes.  I need a spouse and a baby, but after that, you're off the hook.



Johnny:  Soooooo, let me see if I've got this straight.  I'm going to marry you and we're going to have a baby, but then we're just effectively business partners starting a dynasty with no continued expectations of romantic connection?
Nessy:  Exactly!  I mean, I've kind of got a thing going with Octavia Moon, so...
Johnny:  Seriously?!?  She's gorgeous!
Nessy:  I know, right?
Johnny:  Well, I mean, if we're being honest, I've kind of got a thing for one of my co-workers.
Nessy:  Done!  I'm your wingman.  First though, I believe I hear wedding bells.



Nessy:  So, shall we?
Johnny:  I'm so in!



Johnny:  With this ring, I thee help with a dynasty.
Nessy:  I accept!  And nice ring, by the way!  You just happened to have this laying around?
Johnny:  Oh, funny story.  Pippin mailed it to me and here I was all like, "Why would he send me a ring?  That's so weird," but it all makes sense now.
Nessy:  K, so...one other thing we need...



Pippin:  This is so not romantic.  This was supposed to be the romance update and everyone was supposed to gush over what a cute couple you are, but oh no, you just have to have your own desires and wishes and give no consideration to how I'd planned the dynasty to go...
Nessy:  K, I'm gonna go take a pregnancy test.
Johnny:  Sweet, just text me the results, I've gotta go to work.
Nessy:  Ooooo, with your love interest?
Johnny:  (blushing) ..yeah.
Pippin:  So not romantic.
And with news that the family is about to be a ittle bigger...
Nessy:  Ka-ching!
we need to add on to the house.



Pippin:  So, yeah, this is what that weird hallway thing was for.  Staircase to the upper floor.



Nessy:  Johnny gets the downstairs bedroom, Octavia and I have the upper suite, and baby boo has a nursery all ready to go.



Pippin:  So not romantic.
Nessy:  Gotta go share the baby news with my sweetheart!



Nessy:  We're gonna have a baby!!
Octavia:  Ohmygosh!!!



Octavia:  I'm so happy!!  I love you so much!
Nessy:  Back attcha, hot stuff!
Pippin:  Eh, I guess it's more romanticy.
And that's not a word.
Pippin:  Whatever, snark box.  And Nessy, don't you have a job to get to?
Nessy:  Yep!  Gotta sell some soap!!  Takes a real up and coming start to do that!
The up and comingest!
Pippin:  Okay, who's making up words now?



Costumer:  Okay, you're all set!
Nessy:  Yeah, nothing says soap like a pirate!



Nessy:  Aaaaaaarh ye havin' troubles swabbin' yer deck?  Then ye be needin'...



Nessy:  Seven Seas Suds!  Bring me anything else and ye'll be walkin' the plank!
Director:  And cut!  That was perfect, baby!  You're great!  Truly an up and coming star!
Nessy:  Hmmm, this guy really knows what he's talking about!
And our triumphant young shining star returns to her less humble than it previously was home.



Nessy:  Hey, welcome back, John boy!  So, how was the day with your sweetheart?
Johnny:  Eh, she kind of doesn't really notice me.
Nessy:  Alright, spill, bro.  How can Nessy help?



Johnny:  I just...I never know what to say.
Nessy:  Be you, dude!  It's not a comedy routine, so stop trying to script it.  Just chat.  Start with "hi" and see where it goes from there.
Johnny:  That's...kind of helpful, actually.
Nessy:  Of course it is.  I'm rather brilliant.
So brilliant that she doesn't even need the genius trait to be this clever.
Nessy:  Thanks, narrator.  Anyway, the only thing you need to have ready is an exit strategy.  Start with "hi," and know how to get out if things fall apart immediately.  Built-in safety net, you know?
Johnny:  …I'm gonna talk to her.  This is happening.
Nessy:  Yeah, baby!  Then you can have her over and all four of us can help take care of the little one!
Pippin:  This household is just weird.
And with that, we bid farewell to our lovely and talented founder and her little one who is blessed enough to be coming out of the world's greatest gene pool.
Nessy:  A bit much at the end, but I liked it anyway.

Johnny does have great genes. And if his co-worker has the initials C.B. and a younger sister with blue hair, their kid would be awesome, too.

Oooooh, Nessy and Octavia---what a plot twist!

I like how upfront Nessy's been with Johnny about the reality of their relationship.
Even more, I loved your script for the soap ad! That was too, too funny!
I almost wish Nessy would remain in commercials just so you would write them up like that.
But I'm sure your scripts for her "real acting" parts will be a blast as well.   ;D

Johnny does have great genes. And if his co-worker has the initials C.B. and a younger sister with blue hair, their kid would be awesome, too.
You are a good guesser  ;=)  And yes, Johnny fathered a bunch of lovely children in my Took IDC, so I was definitely looking to bring those genes into this dynasty line as well!  The Octavia thing was an amusing twist, but definitely still wanted the Johnny genetics  :=)  And he might have other lovely children outside the dynasty line with a certain blonde with a blue-haired sister as well ;=)

Johnny certainly brings some good genes to the table.

Yeah, I actually went in and did a trial file with Nessy and a few different potential suitors to see which one would have the loveliest offspring with her and it was Johnny, hands down!

Oooooh, Nessy and Octavia---what a plot twist!

I like how upfront Nessy's been with Johnny about the reality of their relationship.

The Octavia twist was a surprise to me as well!  I love letting my Sims lead me where they will and then rolling with the insanity.
I'm so glad you enjoyed the soap commercial!!  The acting career creates some delightfully silly moments, but that one was particularly fun to script out  :=)

The magnanimous Nessy continues her movement towards unending stardom and continues moving in the direction of becoming the parent to the world's most fortunate youngster.
Pippin:  "Magnanimous?"
I...may have picked up a thesaurus to find more ways to praise Nessy…
Nessy:  Great work, narrator!  Now, to Orchid-A-Go-Go!!



Nessy:  Flex, my man!  I'm kind of a big deal, so you can totally let me in the VIP lounge, right?
Flex:  Nessy, I'd really like to but, wait, what's this?



Flex:  I mean, for you, Miss Nessy, absolutely!  You're a big up and coming star!
Nessy:  Why thank you, Flex!



And in addition to getting into the VIP lounge simply on her own merit and stardom, Nessy made the rounds to line up more potential good friends.



Well, I mean, eventually she did.
Nessy:  Priorities, narrator!



Nessy:  Hello, other celebrities like me and random teen!  You are all on the short list to maybe be considered as my friends!
Other Celebrities and Random Teen:  Ooooooooo!
Thorne Bailey: Hey, aren't you that celebrity who's dating Octavia Moon?
Nessy:  Well, if you're asking if I'm your wife's girlfriend, I sure am!
Thorne:  I...yeah...that's what I was asking.
Nessy:  No worries, you're still on the short list.
Thorne:  (fist pump) Yes!



Paolo Rocca's Grandpa:  Oh my gosh!  What an amazing power couple you two are!
Nessy:  Why thank you, Paolo Rocca's Grandpa!
Paolo Rocca's Grandpa:  I'm not actually...you're kidding, right...we're...I'm not related to him.  I have a real name, you know?
Nessy:  Not with that attitude you don't!  Now excuse me for a moment, babe.
Octavia:  K!



Nessy:  K, Lollipop...
Candy:  Candy.
Nessy:  Whatever, my husband, Johnny, is totally crazy about you, but doesn't think you notice him, so...
Candy:  Wait, I thought...he...you two got married, so...I thought he wasn't interested in me...I mean, you two are having...
Nessy:  Eh, it's just dynasty convenience, but seriously, he is totes cray cray about you!
Candy:  SQUEEE!!!  Ohmygosh!  Thank you!!!
Nessy:  And...texting Johnny to meet me here...and sending blondie out to meet him...my work here is done!



Candy:  Oh, hey, Johnny!
Johnny:  Hi!
Candy:  You're such a great comedian!  I love those funny bits you write!  Where do you come up with all that stuff?
Johnny:  I...I write comedy...stuff...
Candy:  Yeah you do!  You're so funny!
Johnny:  I'm funny.
Pippin:  This is a train wreck.
And our comedic genius of a founder borrows one of Johnny's comic bits to practice before her audition for The Urbs.



Pippin:  Wait, what?  The Urbs?!?  That's my favorite show!
And no surprise, she gets the job, and they are lucky to have her.  Lucky!



Nessy:  Oof, prego belly is rough! 
Octavia:  But you make it so attractive!
Nessy:  You flatterer!  Anyway, I got the gig on The Urbs!
Octavia:  Woot!  Let's celebrate!!



Pippin:  Wow!  Celebrating?
Nessy:  Celebrating!!
Pippin:  And while that was happening...



Johnny:  So yeah, I...I really like you...and I want to...if it's okay...maybe...
Candy:  Maybe what, Johnny?



Candy:  Oh my!!!
Johnny:  Sorry.
Candy:  Don't be!!  I liked it!



Pippin:  Huh, train wreck worked out after all.
Nessy:  I'm just that good.
Yeah she is!
Pippin:  And Nessy has some company...



Pippin:  and Johnny has some company...



Pippin:  and eventually, the household gains some permanent company!



Nessy:  OWW!!  Babe?  I'm in labor!!  OWW!!!
Octavia:  OHMYGOSH!!!  Let's to you the hospital!!!  Being cool!  Ohmygosh!!  Strong I'm be for you!  Having breathing!  Gotta breathing...through the face...for the baby...



Nessy:  You're doing great, sweetie.  I'm just gonna go inside and have the baby now.
Octavia:  Ohmygosh!!  (faints)



Nessy:  So, I'm sure you've done this plenty of times, right, doctor?
Doctor:  Oh sure.  I've done this lots.  Tons of times, in fact.  On the simulator.  Oh, and I'm not a doctor.  I'm actually just a medical intern, but I'm really hopeful that this will all go just fine.  Probably.



Nessy:  Simulator?  Intern?!?!?
Doctor Medical Intern:  Eh, I'm sure it will probably be fine.  Maybe.  Oops!



Nessy:  ...
Doctor Medical Intern:  Ma'am?  Oh!  That wasn't supposed to come out.  Hang on...
Pippin:  And through some minor miracle, everything went alright and the dynasty's hopes are placed on the tiny, adorable shoulders...



Pippin:  of little Tavi (TAH-vee) Jeong.  Wait...Tavi...OcTAVIa...did you name your baby with Johnny after your not-so-secret girlfriend?
Nessy:  Proudly!
Pippin:  (facepalm)
And with that, we leave the glorious Nessy and her little princess Tavi

Ooh look at the cute little nooboo. Also loving the whole open marriage dynasty polyamory situation. Makes for interesting plot development.

Welcome to the zany Jeong simverse, Tavi!
Looking forward to seeing you grow and thrive! :)

Thanks!  I rather enjoy the weird family dynamic happening in the household.  It creates some really fun and unique opportunities for storytelling!  Glad you're enjoying it  :=)
And yes, Tavi is just precious!!!

Nessy makes her own rules. Loved the commercial!
Thanks!  The commercial was fun to write.  I want to keep scripting out some of her acting moments as it's a weird and unique twist that is only available to me since this is her unique career, emphasis on unique  ;=)
And yeah, she makes her own rules.  I love when the weird quirks my Sims have take stories in weird directions  :=)  Of course, since they were both so on board with the initial flirting and Nessy never got embarrassed, I still haven't knocked out an embarrassed whim!  Ah well, there's still plenty of time.

Welcome to the zany Jeong simverse, Tavi!
Looking forward to seeing you grow and thrive! :)
(and great name choice, by the way, Nessy!)
Yeah, I actually hadn't picked out a name when the birth happened, but fortunately, Nessy brought Octavia along, so the namesake was right there to help me think of it  :=)

When last we'd left the Jeong household, our incredible matriarch, Nessy, had gifted the Simverse with the most delightfully glorious bundle of joy to have ever existed, Tavi.
Nessy:  And she's just the perfect blend of my genetics and Octavia's.
Pippin:  That's not how genetics work!
Nessy:  Speaking of work, off to star in The Urbz!
Pippin:  You're making a guest cameo.
Nessy:  Off.  To.  Star.  In.  THE URBZ!!



Wardrobe Lady:  You make a fine looking blonde, Nessy!
Nessy:  Umm, are you checking out my backside?
Wardrobe Lady:  ...yes.  Now let's cover it with something else.
Pippin:  Well, that was awkward.



Nessy:  So, how does this starring role you're casting me in work?
Director:  Starring role...?  Okay, so you're a new neighbor who's moved into the apartment across the hall and you're chatting with Michelle when she starts choking, so...
Nessy:  Got it!  Light, camera, ACTION!
Director:  ...I was supposed to get to say that...



Nessy:  Hey there, I just moved in next door and I thought I'd swing by to say hello..
Michelle:  Oh, well I'm...(cough cough)...ugh...(gasping for breath)
(pre-recorded noises of shock and concern from the audience)
Nessy:  Hold on!  I'm a doctor!  Let me see...



Nessy:  Yep, I believe you have something lodged in your throat.  I'm going to have to blow it out.  BREATH OF LIFE!!
(pre-recorded audience sound of "ooooooooooo")



Michelle:  Oh my!  That was...thank you, doctor!
Nessy:  Oh, don't mention it.  But I will have to charge you for the house call.
(canned laughter)



Michelle:  Well, since you're here and I'm being charged anyway, maybe I'm choking again?
(canned laughter and oooooooooo noises)
Director:  And cut!  Well, none of that was in the script, but what the heck!  Let's roll with that!
Nessy:  You.  Are.  Welcome!
Michelle:  …seriously, though, can we do that again?
And with another glorious performance completed, our darling and daring founder makes her way to Pupperstone Park to find a non-human friend.



Nessy:  Dog!  I would pet you, but my boy Flex is passed out on my foot right now.  How about you just agree to be my friend and I'll get you an autographed photo of me with my sweetheart?
Blue (the dog):  Arf!
Nessy:  Done!
And our hero outshines the Dog Soft-Speaker himself in instantly befriending a dog!
Pippin:  Not sure that's exactly how that happened...
Nessy:  Woot!  Let's hit the Spice Festival, babe!
Octavia:  Shouldn't we actually raise our child at some point?
Nessy:  Eh, I've got a Johnny on the spot for that.



Nessy:  You know, this really doesn't look all that hot, right, babe?
Octavia:  This food is literally on fire, so...
Nessy:  Omnomnom, eat up babe, it's not so...



Nessy:  …I have made a mistake.



Nessy:  OOOWW!!!!!
Octavia:  Hot!  Hot!  HOTHOTHOT!!
Nessy:  But not as hot as you, babe!



And so, the divine Nessy and her beloved head off to get some much-deserved rest.



Pippin:  I...doubt that was all rest time...
Nessy:  Hush, Pippin.
And as she arose from her glorious slumber, our beloved Nessy, greatest caregiver of all time, checks in on the precious princess she has been raising single-handedly.



Nessy:  Hi, Johhny!
Johnny:  Oh, hey, Nes!  Isn't she adorable?
Nessy:  Of course!  She swam out of my gene pool!  Anyway, when's Cocoa due with your little sunshine?  I'd love to have a sweet little child friend for little Tavi.
Johnny:  Candy.  And I just invited her over to check on her.
Nessy:  Cool!  I've got things under control here!



Pippin:  Aww, look at Nessy actually taking care of her own baby.
Nessy:  Yeah...I might invite some friends over to keep an eye on her while I head off to my next audition.
Pippin:  (facepalm)



Johnny:  Ohmygoodness!!!  I'm so happy!!
Candy:  And I'm...being kicked.
Johnny:  ...can I...?
Candy:  Of course, doofus!  This little kung fu master is yours too!



Johnny:  I'm so happy!!
Pippin:  Well, Judith Ward sure isn't.



Nessy:  …and she doens't like the yams, so go with the mashed green beans instead.
Judith:  You seriously can't expect that a big name star would be reduced to babysitting duties when...
Nessy:  Exactly!  Thanks for understanding, Judy!  I'm a big name star, so I have to be free for auditions instead of babysitting.  You really get me!  You're on the short list for good friends!  (leaves for her audition)
Judith:  ...it's...it's not Judy.  It's Judith.  (sigh)
And of course, our phenomenally talented founder gets the role, but that will have to wait for the next update.

Oh, my. Where to begin? I love everything about this wackadoodle Dynasty. You have a flair, Sir, for storytelling. Nessy is so cute and I love their extended family. I am looking forward to seeing where this all ends up.

I mean, why should Nessy have to look after Tavi as a bassinet burrito? That's what nannies and Johnny are for, right?
So Nessay will be your fame and stardom in Del Sol Valley generation?
Looking forward to learning how all that earning stars and fame perks stuff works!

wow lesbians!  ;) It's a very nice dinasty and you write really well.
Eh, I think Octavia is technically bi, but glad you enjoy the happy couple  :=)
I appreciate the compliments and am glad you're enjoying the story!!

So glad you're enjoying the crazy ride!  I love rolling with the insanity of Sims being Sims, so it definitely gets into wackadoodle range quickly and consistently!
Thanks for reading and commenting!!

Yeah, can't say the bassinet and toddler time is always a favorite time for me when we're in the midst of dynasty requirements and I want to focus on building a skill or working towards a promotion rather than changing diapers or potty training.  However, can't deny how absolutely adorable the kiddos are!!!
I don't think I'm really setting the tone for how to do fame.  Nessy is still a 1 star celebrity just like she was when I started with her.  On the bright side, I've avoided losing fame!
