Happy updates are some of the best I think!

Wow, Cyllene and Europa are lovely elders *wolf whistles* they'll have to keep away elderly gents with a stick I think!

Yay! Pre-emptive *confetti* for the nooboo on the way!

Cyllene approached me the next morning. She’d completed the final pieces for my section of the immortal dynasty. Between her and Agnes, the museum captured my life stages perfectly.
I hugged my sister, thanking her for all she’d done for me. She was the perfect sister to have grown up with.


I walked into the kitchen, where Mum was waiting. Today was the day. Today was the day I would become immortal.


I took a seat next to her. As I took my first bite of ambrosia, I smiled to myself. I always thought this moment would hurt, but now that I was here, I was happier than I’d ever been in my life.


“Thank you Grandma Luna,” I whispered as the feeling of immortality started to seep through my body, “Thank you for making my life and my family possible”.

Happy birthday to Europa and Cyllene! They don't look like elders, at all. Tell them that. ;)

Congratulations on the second Immortal! Way to go, well done.

I really liked these latest updates, just because they were happy, awesome! :D

Thanks everyone!
I just purchased every single building and property and upgraded them to level 3. I built a nice little lodge at Crystal Springs. It's tiny, but it's three stories. It's got two lots of small dining room/lounge, kitchens, bathroom and bedroom. All on about a 10 x 5 block :D

@Gogo
Technically, it's the fourth immortal. Luna never reached immortality, as she was an adult when they were taken by Hades. But thank you either way!

I can't keep up with comments when you're posting two updates a day - but it sure is nice to have 3 updates to read after each other!

First things first; double congratulations to the newlyweds. Getting married and expecting a baby are certainly happy occasions.

Next, congratulations to Europa and Cyllene on their Elder birthdays! They don't look old at all, and as radiant as ever.

Last, but not least, congratulations to Europa and to you on reaching Immortality; 2 down 6 to go!

My name is Leda. I am the third Moon of Jupiter.
To the people of Sunset Valley I am known as Loopy Leda, but I don’t mind. They may think I’m insane, but I know that I’m just more perceptive than others.


I live in a mansion with my family; my best friends. My brother, like me, is more open to the “beyond”. He is also subjected to the laughter of others, but we don’t care. They’re just blind to the obvious.

We recently had a renovation of the entire house. It’s much taller than the old house, giving us more room to roam.



People call me crazy because I talk to beings only I can see. I call them River Gargoyles. They lurk about during the day, and settle in the ocean at night. They only respond to certain sounds, and I’m the only one who knows how to make those sounds. Therefore, only I can see them.
Makes sense right?
The same goes for my brother. He sees creatures too, but I can’t tell you what they look like, only that they’re called Little Pixies. Like me, he’s the only one to see them.

Now, I get to the actual crazy part. Mum thinks this talk of River Gargoyles is crazy, yet she and Grandma want me to undertake a bunch of random tasks, then become immortal, to save a distant relative from the underworld.
I’m going to have to start calling them Crazy Callisto and Eccentric Europa soon, I think.
However, they’re my family. The only family I’ve got, and the only family I’ll ever have. The only people who will always be there for me and never judge. For that reason, and that alone, I am willing to go ahead with these insane tasks to help them.

Where was I…? River Gargoyles… Crazy… Creatures… Grass… Underworld…. Right! My life.
I am married to the most perfect man. His name is Jamie, and he supports me through everything. He is the most hopeless romantic I’ve met, but I’d never want him any other way. He even lets me talk about the River Gargoyles.

I am in my third trimester of pregnancy. I’m so very excited to be having a little nooboo. I want a boy, but Jamie wants a girl. For that reason, we’re not going to find the gender out until the day the little one is born.
Jamie is a wonderful father-to-be. He is not only completely smitten with me, but also with our little baby. He always wants to talk of our future, as well as listen and talk to the baby. It makes it a lot easier on me to have him so enthused by the nooboo.


The time is nearing where the baby will arrive, and I honestly cannot wait. Jamie and I will spoil this little one; I want them to grow up knowing they’re loved. Not only will they get the love of their parents, but also the love of their grandparents, uncle and great grandma!
I’m counting down the moments now – I can’t wait to meet my little baby.

Nice to meet you, Leda! Do you know who was the original "insane lady"? Your great-grandmother! ;D

I absolutely love the look of your house - it's both classical and convenient. Especially like the balconies.

Can't wait for the nooboo - awesome update! :D

Thanks you Chronic and MissMaths. I got tired of having a hexagon house, as I couldn't place things properly or add new rooms, so I made a plain square one.
The update wasn't so great because I usually edit them before I post them, but I was feeling so sick that I was almost asleep when I posted the update, so no editing for that one.

TallStar, I think Leda would love to meet you then!

I was on the balcony, practicing my sculpting, when I heard Mum tell Jamie to stop me from using my chainsaw while pregnant, especially while in my bathing suit.
I sighed inwardly. When would mum understand that the baby likes the soothing sound of the chainsaw cutting through ice?


I heard Jamie’s footsteps coming through the door, and prepared to be sweet-talked out of using the chainsaw, when all of a sudden I was crippled by pain. The baby was coming!


Both Jamie and Dad both went into complete panic mode. It seemed that Arche was the only sane one, singing to his sculpture.


It wasn’t long before I was holding a beautiful baby girl in my arms. Her name would be Lysithea, the fourth Moon of Jupiter.


Everyone in the house became obsessed with my little girl. Whenever one person put her down, another would be picking her up. But I couldn’t blame any of them – she was extremely sweet.





It wasn’t long before she was ready for the toddler years. I thought she looked quite like me, but with her Daddy’s eyes. I wondered if she’d be able to see the River Gargoyles too.


We all took turns in teaching her the basics.
I taught her to walk, but mum refused to let me teach her how to talk. She said something along the lines of her needing Grandma bonding time,  but I heard her whisper “And I won’t have her thinking River Gargoyles exist” under her breath.
We left the potty training for Jamie.




I could hardly believe that in no time this little babbling baby would be a child. Although she was growing fast, my love for her would stay the same. I’d always love my little Lysi, and lead her through life as best as I could.

That's a new one. Never knew before. ;D

Welcome to the world and happy birthday, little Lysi! She's such a sweetheart - all Leda. :) I too hope she'll be able to see the River Gargoyles.

Awesome update and screenshots, Alex!

Dad recently celebrated his elder birthday. We didn’t have a big event, as he needed to be off to work.


Him and mum were still very close, apparently as close as they were when they first fell in love. Having Jamie, I could understand that feeling. I was even looking forward to being that happy old woman with her husband, kicking back with my pension and grandkids.


Aunty Cyllene was also still infatuated with her Chantal. Chantal told her how everyone had been reporting that Cyllene was one of the most eternally faithful people ever. That certainly boosted Aunty Cyllene’s mood and esteem, as well as her love for Chantal.



Arche also finally made his move on his long-time crush, Marcie Cotton. He’d flirted on and off with her during high school, but couldn’t work up the courage to ask her to be his.



One morning, Arche brought our family great news – he was going to be a father!
Arche was very excited, talking non-stop about his little nooboo that was coming into the world. Marcie spent a lot of time at our house, where Arche pampered her.


Aunty Cyllene showed Marcie and her housemates her Architectural Designer portfolio, and offered to make a nursery for the new baby. They were all rather impressed and agreed on it.
She added a few extra cribs, just in case Marcie’s housemates wanted children of their own too.

The days went by with Arche and Marcie hardly leaving each other’s sides, when the baby finally decided to arrive.
I swear I heard Arche yell “She’s going to blow!!” all the way from here!


A few hours later, I got a call from Arche. He didn’t have one nooboo. Not even two. He had three baby daughters! They were named Tami, Christy and Leann.


Although Arche and I had never really spent time apart, he started to spend a lot of time at Marcie’s house with his three little girls. But that was okay with me; I knew he had his hands full.
I was glad for the time I had to spend with my baby Lysi. She was the most precious thing in the world.

If the child is born outside of the household you can't name the baby. So Story Progression.

Happy Birthday James! The hair only makes you look like you're old.

I thought you could change the name through City Hall if you're the parent. But, whatever, don't want to go off topic here so let's let Alexandria answer the question. :) Thanks.

Welcome into this world Lysi, Tami, Christy and Leann!

The twins are parents! I'm sure all the girls will have a blast growing up together. Well, at least until they start borrowing each other's clothes, make-up (and possibly boyfriends!)

Lysi is a really cute toddler, I love that last picture of her and Leda together.

Thank you everyone.
I forgot you could go to the City Hall and change them. They were chosen by Story Progression, but they all have the same feel, so although they're not the type of names I'd usually use, I think they go well together.

The last picture was rather cute. I think it shows how much Leda really does love her little girl.
