I never realized how pretty Pauline is - her original hairstyle really detracts from her beauty.  So excited to read more and see your house - I'm sure it will be wonderful!

Yeah Pauline's fashion sense was doing her no favors, great makeover she went from a snoozer NPC to a knock out Sim!

Chapter 3: Proverbs Run In Pairs

     Paragraph 2: Mambo Number 5


                                           Digital Diary

                                             of Hank the Man!


                                      

                                      Not really a diary though...

                                                                                  Property of:
                                                                                  Hank Goddard








                                                                                                                            Entry 1
     Right,

     Catie gave me a diary. Not a clue what I should be doing with it. I'm not the writing type:
     I'm a man of action! I can always draw though... maybe about the glorious turn my life's
     made.

     Before:

    

     After:

    



     Let's SING!

     A little bit of Pauline in my life,
     A little bit of Caitlin by my side,
     A little bit of Agnes' all I need,
     A little bit of -umpf- is all I see,
     A little bit of wealth right in the sun,
     A little bit of whoohoo all night long,
     A little bit of "Hey Girls!" here I am,
     A little bit of them makes Hank the Man!!!!!!!!
  
     Whaaaa! Tu-tu-du-du-tututu-du-du-du!
               

    

                                                My life's goooooood!

I think Hank "Head in the Clouds" Goddard is about to be introduced to a little bitter reality about what it's really like to live with 3 women, after a week everything will always be his fault LOL

I love the song reference, funny parody ;)

That was awesome!!! Oh my, what a fantastic portrayal of the commitment issues trait. Juxt is right though, Hank the Man is in for a rude awakening!

I'm curious where paragraph 1 is.

I'm curious where paragraph 1 is.

Paragraph 1 is on page 3, the direct link is here. It was the update with Pauline's first diary entry. I see Juxta already beat me to the punch though!

And yes, I've got a feeling your and Juxta's predictions will come true - Hank will probably feel under-appreciated in no time!

Aww, commitment issues, yes, that explains a lot, I didn't relaize he had those LOL

He has commitments issues yep - quite severe ones too! :P

Who says that Pauline has to know?  :P In the Dynasty Rules it doesn't say they have to be married just in the same house to produce the next generation.  ;)

I'm not saying anything :-X No clues as to what's going to happen next - everything will unfold in due time! :D

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful comments I keep receiving! The fact that so many people are enjoying my story makes writing it - and pushing for updates - even more fun for me (if that's even possible - so far I've been having a blast with my dynasty!).

On that note: the house is definitely coming along. After a lot of building, "step-backwarding" and more building, I finally settled with an exterior design I'm happy with - for now :P It took me such a long time because I did not want to start small and keep expanding the house when necessity called for it. I find that this often gives me a rather un-designed house, and that's not what I wanted for my dynasty. Hence I wanted to build a complete design from the start (where I can still expand, but then within the constraints of my design).

The good thing about this approach is that I have very limited funds for the interior design, so a lot of already designed space won't be used until more money comes in. I find it easier to redesign interior than exterior space (and a lot cheaper!). I'm almost done decorating the social areas, after which only the private areas are left. Once that's done all my lot needs is some serious landscaping, and then I will finally be ready to continue playing my dynasty. An update won't have to wait that long though; Chapter 3 still has more paragraphs to tie my "Under Construction" period over!

Chapter 3: Proverbs Run In Pairs

     Paragraph 3: Life Of The Widowed


                                           Letters to Erik

                                                  from your Aggie


              

                   Now with a new cover...

                                                                                             Property of:
                                                                                             Agnes Crumplebottom








                                                                                                                            Entry 37
     Dear Erik,

     Sorry for not writing you sooner dear.

     I've been overwhelmed with work ever since I went to Caitlin's "Environment Meeting".
     Not that it actually qualified as a meeting, it more closely resembled "The Caitlin Show".
     Just what I'd expected of course; she thinks she's so perfect. I hope it made her
     think when only two people showed up. Well, two people and me to be precise, but I did
     not attend to join her cause. I think she somehow sensed that, I've never seen a
     person with worse manners!

     I took no notice of that though and got exactly what I came for.

     Out of all the ideas I've been running through since you died this one has the best chance
     to succeed. The downside is that I'll have to deal with Caitlin - the little brat - but I will
     endure. For you. For me. For us.

     Luckily it's not just me and Caitlin, thank goodness, two other people joined her cause
     when I did. I am absolutely baffled why anyone would want to help her but apparently
     these two do. Pauline is a very sweet girl - I think we'll get along. Her boyfriend, Hank, is
     another matter though.

     He seemed nice enough, a bit of a failed Casanova, but otherwise nice enough. He even
     offered to help me shop for groceries the other day. Pleasantly surprised I let him come
     along - big mistake! Oh, he was very helpful all through the grocery shopping, but when
     we were finished he handed me a flower and confessed he had a "surprise" for me.

     I know you taught me never to accept anything from strangers, but it has been a
     while since anyone's been attentive to me so I felt strangely flattered and my curiosity got
     the better of me.

     He left me at the salon.
    
     I went in.

     I went out:

       
                   

     Isn't that just to cry about...

     If I could lift it; I'd throw something heavy at his head! I look so young now, and so "hip".
     No one's got style anymore these days and now I lost mine too. And they even dyed
     my hair! I'm so sorry sweetheart, I know you always loved the blond on me.
    
     The only one Hank turned out to be surprising was himself! Now he won't stop looking at
     my behind!

     We spent all our money on the new house though, which means I'll be condemned to this
     look for a while. They threw my old clothes out, called them "passé". And I can't afford new
     ones right now, or another dye-job for that matter.

     My only solace is the knowledge that I finally found what's going to bring us happiness
     again. Just be patient a little while longer my dear; your Aggie's got it covered!

     Forever Yours,
     Agnes

Chapter 3: Proverbs Run In Pairs

     Paragraph 4: The Three Little Pigs


                                                                                                                            Entry 10
     Dear Diary,

     Once upon a time there were three little pigs and the time came for them to leave their
     own homes and try to save the world.

     They joined forces with a wolf and declared themselves a democracy, because their
     mothers had told them: "Whatever you do, do it the nicest that you can because that's the
     way to get along in the world."

     The first little pig always made lousy, unsubstantiated arguments because it was the
     easiest thing to do.

     The second little pig made OKish, logical arguments. These were a little better than the
     lousy arguments

     The third little pig made great, solid arguments.

     Every day the small pretty wolf, who dearly loved to outsmart the little piggies, came
     along and talked to the first little pig with his lousy arguments. She said: "Let me win! Let
     me win little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and your arguments will sag in!"

     "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig.

     But of course the wolf huffed and puffed and the first little pig's arguments sagged in.

     The wolf then talked to the second little pig.

     "Let me win! Let me win little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and your arguments will sag in!"
     "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig. But the wolf huffed and puffed
     and the second little pig's arguments also sagged in.

     Then the wolf talked to the third little pig.

     "Let me win! Let me win!", cried the wolf.
     "Or I'll huff and I'll puff until all your arguments sag in!"

     "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the pig.

     Well, the wolf huffed and puffed but she could not make those arguments sag in.

     But the wolf was a sly young wolf and she tried to make this democracy work to her
     advantage by getting the first two little pigs to support her arguments.

     The third little pig, however, was a sly old pig and always one step ahead of the wolf.
     She'd already have the support of the other two little pigs before the wolf could even try.

     So there was nothing for the wolf to do but retreat with her tail between her legs and try
     again the next day.


                   


     Yea... those have been my only expressions lately. This whole ordeal is so immensely
     frustrating! There's always one freaking pig who manages to build a freaking house of
     stone!
And everyone knows wolves can not blow stones away!

     I feel so sorry for the wolf.

     Tomorrow I'm reconstituting this household as a tyranny!

Chapter 3: Proverbs Run In Pairs

     Paragraph 5: Hi! My Name Is Lois Lane


                                                                                                                            Entry 2
     Hey again,

     Just a quickie!

     It seems everyone is getting a new look! Well, except for Cate, but she doesn't care what
     she looks like. Not that that matters because she looks gorgeous anyway. And if she didn't
     then that would be fine too! It's not about how you look you see, it's about...

     I'm rambling. Sorry.

     Where was I... Oh yea: I gave myself a new look, to fit my new persona. And Hank
     surprised Agnes with a makeover.

     Just between you and me - isn't that sweet of him? I'm sure he did that to help her
     acclimate to our new household. Cate's really nice and all, but she can be so petty
     sometimes. She kept chortling every time she looked at Agnes' hair. Well, Agnes looks
     fabulous now! All because of my Hank! Isn't it sweet of him how he's trying to help
     someone else? I think I'm falling in love all over again!

     So naturally, I thought it time to upgrade Hank's wardrobe as well. I took him shopping
     for new clothes and afterwards I sent him to the hairdresser. Personally, I think his new
     look turned out quite well! I'm not sure how I feel about the hair and the goatee yet - it's
     a bit too Bieberish, if you know what I mean - but I'm guessing it will grow on me.

     That shirt though, I'd rather burn today than tomorrow! He desperately wanted to have it
     - so I let him. But my oh my, now he won't stop pretending he's Clark Kent. Naturally I
     have to play Lois Lane - like I have time for that. We've got a house to finish!

     Oh well, I guess if he actually turns into a vegetarian it won't have been so bad.

           

          
                     

     Talk to you soon!

     Yours,
     Pauline


Authors Note 1: Hank is a walking fashion disaster. Whatever you put on him; he always ends up looking like a gorilla in clothes! He's just too buff.
Authors Note 2: The construction works are almost done! Well... as done as they are gonna get on this budget. Just a few more i's to dot and then the story can finally progress again! You better prepare yourselves for the "grand" tour!
