Very nice.  Did Agnes put on a little weight between seeing her at the library and visiting her house?

I had pushed through life with ease; I was smart and easy to get along with.
I had done my honors degree in a science course while working at a nursery. The plant kind.
I'd saved up a bit of money in the time, and now I knew I needed something new. I craved it.

Life was becoming slow and repetitive.
I needed to break out of the cycle of normality and create a new life.
I entertained thoughts of life fruit, of death fish; of immortality.
I wondered - could I do it? Could anyone do it?

The more I wondered, the more I became convinced of the possibility.
But what would it prove?
That I could become immortal?
And what would be the fun in being a lonely immortal?
No, I wouldn't just become immortal. I'd create an immortal dynasty.
Each first born of every generation would join me in this quest.

My name is Mercury Copernicus.


I'm a fairly simple man. I love the outdoors, to garden and to cook. I can get over-emotional at times, but that's just the way I am.

My first step towards my dream was to find a place to start afresh.
Sunset Valley. A small town, far away from all the buzz of normal life.
I knew that I needed to find work. I decided to take my love of gardening and turn it into something that could make me money.
I headed to the City Hall and applied as a gardener.


It had been a while since I'd worked at the plant nursery, so I headed to the library to read up on certain flora. I had just got into my book, when I saw and intriguing woman walk past.


I began to think. I could use another person in my life. A friend, or a love.
I asked a man nearby who the woman was, and where I could find her.

When I turned up to her house, she was in her nightgown. Although her hair was odd, she certainly was a pretty lady.
Her name was Agnes Crumplebottom.
We got talking, and soon one thing lead to another. Agnes was now my girlfriend.


She asked me to stay over at her house for the night. How could I ever say no?


But there was one thing that Agnes didn't know about me - something I tried to keep hidden...


Many people take kleptomania the wrong way. I don't steal because I want to steal. I steal because of uncontrollable impulses I get.
The next day I admitted to Agnes that I had stolen her curtains, but she was more than accepting.

As my way for apologising for the theft, I took Agnes out for tea at the bistro.


And then I got down on one knee...


Agnes jumped up and down, and said yes. She had to rush home as she was running on no sleep, but I knew I could wait. I literally had all the time in the world.

The next day I called Agnes over. I didn't have much money, but I had enough to make a small garden of roses.
We said our vows and exchanged rings.


I welcomed Agnes Copernicus into my life.

Edit: I just moved the first post to this comment so that I could leave the first post as a chapter guide.

Thanks Pam.
Yes she had.
There was actually a Sim day between the visits in my game, so I was rather surprised to see her weight change.

Yeah, I caught that too. Funny how that happens sometimes. Agnes the Saddlebagness.

Nice start on your story Alexandria_.

Thank you  :)

I put Agnes on the treadmill, and she lost the weight, but it's three days later now and she still hasn't put it back on. Is that normal?

Well, now that she's under your control it's probably not surprising because you're limiting what she eats.

Ah, I see.
I got a picture of Holly Alto with a lot of weight as well. It's strange to see the most well-known characters at different weights.

I guess Agnes let herself go a bit when she fell in love. I am looking forward to reading more.

Agnes wanted to celebrate our new found love with a make-over. She kept her quirky black style, but changed her hair. I didn't tell her, but I was extremely glad to see her old hair go.





We sold Agnes' car and ended up raking in $108,000 to build our new dream home with.


Seeing as Agnes is already a level 6 in cooking, she taught me how to cook. We started simple with Autumn Salad.


While we ate, I decided that it was time to reveal my plan to her.
I took a deep breath, and dove in to explanation.
I told her that I wanted something new, and we could create it together.


She seemed intrigued by the idea, and agreed to give it a go. She also suggested that we document the dynasty through portraits and sculptures. She's full of surprises, this one!

After dinner, she whispered in my ear "How soon did you want to start this dynasty?". I took a hint, and chimes were heard in the wind.

I think she's more attractive than Morgana, which is who I went for in my other attempt.
I've never really paid much attention to Agnes, but I'm glad I went with her this time.

Great start!  Are you naming them after the planets? I was curious about your sims name and if you had a theme?

Thanks A.Drake and lilygirl :)
Close! I'm naming them after things in our solar system. I'm kind of a big astronomy nerd :D

Nicolaus Copernicus was an astronomer/mathematician/physicist. He was the first person to make a detailed model of the planets and Earth, though he thought the planets revolved around Earth.

I was going to go with the last name Galilei, because Galileo Galilei (another physicist/astronomer/mathematician) is my favourite historical figure ever. He is the one that proposed that the planets revolve around the sun. However, when I was thinking of possible names for future generations, none went with Galilei.

The next day, Agnes signed up as a self-employed sculptor and I began working on my garden.



After a hard days work, I decided it would be nice to make some sort of social contact with the outside world, so I headed over to the neighbours house.
I rang the doorbell and a stout man came out and shook my hand. His name was Nick Alto.


We chatted until I decided I should go back and check on Agnes and her sculpting. She'd already electrocuted herself twice from trying to fix things, so who's to say it won't happen a third time? I think she needs my supervision at all times.

On my way out, something caught my eye.
I wondered, "Should I..? Well.. no-one is watching..."


But I couldn't stop there. I headed over to a big house on the beach, and I found another car to lift.


I told myself it was all for the best. It'd help our family. Those rich people replace their cars like their paperclips anyway.

When I got home, the most amazing thing had happened: Agnes was pregnant with our first baby.


During the pregnancy, we both read books on how to raise kids together. I often felt the nooboo kick in her stomach, and had conversations with him/her.





I really did love Agnes, and I made sure she knew it.
"You're going to be the perfect mother", I told her. Her smile told me all I needed to know.


Later that afternoon, I went to check up on how Agnes' sculpture of an alligator wearing a top hat was going, when something hit her..



All I could do was panic.

We welcomed Jupiter Copernicus into the world...


And her two brothers, Orion and Aries.



Triplets were certainly a big surprise for both of us!
Jupiter and Aries are artistic and hate the outdoors; Orion is a loner and loves the outdoors.

As Agnes spent all of her time sculpting in hope to add sculptures of us into our future immortal museum; I was the one who cared for the babies.



The day for everyone's birthdays came around very quickly.
Agnes aged into an adult, and had a midlife crisis. She was still a loner, but she now hated the outdoors, was handy, a savvy sculptor and a perfectionist.


The babies also aged up into toddlers.
None of the toddlers inherited our hair colours. Jupiter and Orion inherited my eyes, and Aries inherited his mothers.




I'd heard gossip of a plant at the science facility that grows whatever you feed it. I was very curious, and decided to call a babysitter, buy an expensive book and try it out.


But when I arrived back home, all my babies needs had been neglected. I felt horrible for leaving them in such incapable hands. Candy Ashleydale was fired immediately.


From then on, I did all the caring and teaching.




And our babies kept themselves entertained with art books.


Meanwhile, Agnes still slaves away at the sculpting station.
She was sad to miss the toddlers growing up, but she knew that they were in good care.
She hoped that her little Jupiter would grow up ready to take her place as the family sculptor and artist.
She wished that see could also live with her forever, but she knew that fate laid in only my hands.

Wow, triplets.  It is bad enough one has die, but two is even harder.  Cute nooboo's. :)

Trying to get everything done as well as looking after three toddlers is extremely hard. I didn't think Agnes would be able to get her portraits done, but luckily she did.
