Birthday Girl

I know every parent thinks that their child is above average, but Idelle learned all her toddler skills in record time.  Before long it was time to celebrate another birthday. 



It seems my fears about Woody were misplaced.  Now that Idelle is a little bit older they are inseparable. 



She’s always playing make-believe, whether she is out for a Sunday drive…



…or presiding over the royal court.  Some might consider it a little eccentric, but Woody and I agree that her vivid imagination is a gift to be nurtured.



She has all of us wrapped around her little finger.  She is    quite taken with the paranormal and she loves nothing more than to sit us all down and tell us a ghost story.  She told me the other day that she wants to be a famous ghost hunter when she grows up so that she can help sims and spirits live peacefully together. 



Even though she is a bit of a daydreamer, she is no slouch academically.  She made it onto the honor roll at school in record time.  We’re all so proud of her!

Pretty soon it’s time for her to become a teenager.  Where is the time going?!  I can’t believe this beautiful young lady is my daughter…





Idelle continued to be a straight A student and she was popular among her classmates.  She was especially close to our neighbor, Tiffanie Moffett.  The girls would often go to Tiffanie’s house or come here after school so that they could study together.  They were like two peas in a pod – wherever one went you could be sure to find the other.  It was really no surprise then, when Tiffanie called and invited Idelle to go to the prom with her.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen her as excited and nervous as she was for her date with Tiffanie.  She spent hours doing her hair and makeup and trying on dress after dress before settling on one that I thought suited her personality.



Ahhh, this brings back such great memories!  I remember when I met Woody at the prom and what a magical evening it turned out to be.  I prayed that Idelle would look back on prom night the same way.  I guess I’m not the calm and collected mom I pride myself on being – here I was worrying over my teenage daughter’s first romance.  It turns out all my worrying was for nothing.  Idelle was crowned prom queen and by the end of the dance she and Tiffanie were going steady.



Tiffanie was accepted as one of the family, just as Woody was.  It might be an unconventional relationship, but we’re an unconventional family.

This is a line I hear on a daily basis. I work at a toy store so it never fails that I have a parent or a grandparent that will ask me
"I am looking for a gift for my child they are VERY advanced for their age." I honestly want to giggle every time because I highly doubt they know how many times I have heard the same exact line! And I really do wonder if their child is actually really smart or if it's all just a cover up.. :P

It was the weirdest thing, Idelle would go over to Tiff's house after school often, but Tiff was never anywhere to be seen.  Idelle would sit and do her homework there.  Then, on the afternoon of the prom, Tiff called and invited Idelle to go with her - I've never seen that happen before and I've had sims who have gone to prom alone.  Idelle accepted the invitation and by the time the prom was over the girls were going steady.  Rock on, Idelle and Tiff!

Just once wouldn't it be hysterical to have a parent come in and say 'My kid is as dumb as a stump, can you recommend a toy that can't get stuck up his/her nose...'    ;D

Me too!  I fell in love with this hairstyle the minute Idelle tried it on.

I can't believe it myself!  I'm a little farther ahead in my game and Brianna is already immortal.  I'll be so proud to join you in having a second HoF entry!  :)  You're absolutely right, the second time through is so much easier and more relaxed than the first time.  I'm thinking of having a go at a decadynasty after this, but I'm still having trouble wrapping my head around a strategy for it.

Seven Down, One To Go

Mom has been so busy keeping you updated on my life that I think it is only proper for me to fill you in on what she’s been doing lately.

She celebrated her adult birthday a couple of days after I was born, not that I remember, of course.  Not long after that she reached the top of her career.



This worked out great for me, since she only had to work one day a week she had plenty of time to spend teaching me my skills.  By the time my child birthday rolled around we were best friends, and remain so even though I’m nearly grown up.  I’m really lucky to have such awesome parents and grandparents.  They support me in everything I do and love me no matter what.  Not everyone is so blessed.

Once I started grade school Mom had plenty of spare time on her hands, so she looked for things to keep herself occupied.

She would spend time with Dad listening to Grandpa Danny’s stories…



…or sometimes they would go on a date.



She loved to play with Sassie with the laser pointer.  How funny watching the kitty chase the little red dot around!



Much to my surprise she even took an interest in the paranormal, my favorite thing.  Here she is playing with a crystal ball we found at a tag sale.  Some of the grandmas don’t put stock in such things, but Mom and I believe.



Shortly after Tiffanie and I started going steady it was time for Mom’s elder birthday.  She aged up beautifully!  I hope I’m as lucky as she is when I get to be her age.



She and Grandma Glenys set right to the task of completing Mom’s portrait, ice sculpture, and photograph for our museum.  It’s quite an impressive place.  Everyone in the family has their own room with all their portraits, sculptures, and photos in it.  There is also a portrait of the person’s husband/wife/significant other in the room so that we never forget the ones we love who made all this possible.  I hope Tiffanie’s portrait will hang in my museum room one day.  There is a space for each person’s awards and mementos and we have a special display of the portraits of all of our pets through the generations, as well as our growing gem collection.





As soon as Mom’s elder portrait, sculpture, and photo were secured in the museum it was time for her to join the others in immortality. 



Now there are seven and it all rests on me.

Just wanted to give a quick, informal update.  I'm in a really boring stretch of game at the moment.  Idelle is about a week away from her adult birthday and she is working on her career, black ops, and friendships - everything else is all set.   :) 

Her romance with Tiffanie is quite rocky at the moment.  Apparently Tiff aged up with the mean-spirited trait, so it ends up being a crap shoot as to whether she will be nice or mean to Idelle on any given day.  Idelle hasn't rolled the wish to break up, so I'm trying to keep the relationship afloat, but I really wish she would dump her and move on.  Who needs a mean-spirited significant other?!

The elders are all doing great.  They will be getting a rock climbing wall in the near future, so perhaps that will give some interesting or funny photo ops.  The house is still under a gnome invasion - the gnome cemetery now has something like 30 headstones in it and I have at least a dozen candidates for it when they age up and pass away.

Hopefully I'll have enough interesting screenies to make a real update in the near future. 

Thank you everyone for continuing to read my dynasty...the end is so close I can practically taste it!

If you ask me,not that anyone did,but I think that generation eight is the hardest because it just seems endless.
Generation one is really hard too but at least it is not boring because there is so much that needs doing. With generation eight you don't even have spouse hunting and nooboos to distract you.

It sure does seem endless.  Idelle now has all her immortality requirements done except her elder museum pieces.  She has 17 days until she ages up.  I suspect I'm going to be playing those days on fast forward.   ;D  I did manage to scrounge up enough screenshots for a proper update, so that will be coming soon.

Lol, this just proves how slow I am... You've nearly finished an Immortal Dynasty in the time I've finished the Req's for my First Immortal. Who I started playing before you started this Dynasty. ::) Not that I am complaining, this is an awesome Dynasty!  ;D

What is the lag like in AP this far into the game? Have you noticed a difference in lag for Generation 8 from this Dynasty and the Starr Dynasty?

Hmm I'm not sure about Tiff now. Maybe you could wait for Idelle to roll a wish to break up with her and then you would have some Lifetime happiness points.
Can't wait for the next picture up date.  :) You're so close.

The lag actually isn't too bad except for loading and saving the game.  I got a new beast of a computer in the fall that has much more memory than my old computer, so I'm sure that is part of the reason the game is running pretty smoothly.  The other thing is my dynasty house is smaller and I've tried to keep the clutter to a minimum (except for my gem collection).  When I get laggy I just resetsim * and that does the trick for at least a while.

I'm not sure about Tiff either, but I'm keeping their relationship bar up.  It's not much of a romance, Idelle doesn't roll wishes to spend time with her, but she hasn't rolled romantic wishes about anyone else either, so I'll just keep going along until Idelle lets me know what she wants to do.

Next update coming up!

Status Quo

I'm confused...

It turns out Tiff had her young adult birthday before I did and now it seems like she doesn't have the time of day for me anymore.  I know she's busy with her job at the grocery store, but still it seems like she's changed somehow.  She seems kind of mean-spirited these days.  Whatever.  I've decided I'm going to wait and see how things go after my birthday.  In the meantime I have plenty to keep me busy with school and nectar making.

My birthday rolled around as these things usually do.  I decided that I didn't want a big party, just a small family celebration - if you can consider a house full of elders 'small'.



After some cake and ice cream everyone piled into the motive mobile to go to my graduation ceremony.  I'm happy to report that I have maintained the Fae's perfect track record.  I am the eighth class valedictorian in the family!  As soon as graduation was over everyone else headed back home and I made my way to the science center to apply for my dream job as a ghost hunter.  I quickly fell into a routine, working on my athletic and musical skills by day, solving Appaloosa Plains' paranormal predicaments by night.



I had completed all my nectar making challenges before my birthday and we now have over 250 bottle of nectar in our museum maturing.  All the work I had put in as a teen perfecting my craft paid off handsomely as I was able to complete my lifetime wish, Bottomless Nectar Cellar, as soon as I selected it.

In other Fae family news, we recently purchased several rock climbing walls since everyone in the family is quite active despite their age.



Here are Grandpa Danny and Grandma Raven doing some training exercises.  Grandma Raven is doing one-handed pull-ups on the climbing wall...show off much?!



Here are Grandpa Danny and I having a race to see who could reach the top first.  I won without breaking a sweat.  Grandpa Danny was a good sport and paid me the $100 we bet each other.

I continued to work on my career, my friendships, and taking as many opportunities as possible when they would come up.  Tiff and I have settled into more of a friendship than a romance, maybe that's how romances end up when they have nowhere else to go.  It's not like we can get married or live together given my peculiar family situation.  I'll always love her and I have the portrait of her that Grandma Glenys painted hanging in a place of honor in my museum room.

I also have some sad news to report.  Grim came to take Sassie away right before my birthday.  Dear Sassie didn't seem at all bothered by it, but it threw the whole family into mourning.  As a side note, apparently Grim is a fan of magic.  Before he left he went out to the loft in the barn and decided to give our cauldron a try.



You'd think being a supernatural being himself would give him some advantage in the realm of magic, but all he conjured was a goldfish, a minnow, and water beetle.  Go figure!

Despite being full of elders, the house felt so empty without Sassie.  Grandma Meg took it especially hard since she and Sass were BFF.  I pulled Grandma Meg aside one afternoon and suggested that perhaps we should adopt again.  After all, Sassie had a wonderful life with us and she would want us to do the same for another animal.  That's how Skyler came to live with us.



He is a Rottweiler mix and is the most awesome dog in the world.  We are inseparable, he even sleeps in bed with me.  I never thought I would fall in love with a dog, but I have.

Time for another birthday, just one more to go until our story comes to an end.



I've done everything that is required of me, but I have a decision to make.  Ghost hunting is my passion but I'm finding it difficult to get promoted.  On the other hand I have a cellar full of nectar that is fully mature and ready to sell.  Do I pursue my ghost hunting career or do I sell off the fruits of my labor, so to speak, as an independent nectar maker.  Decisions, decisions.

I'll leave you with a picture of Shady Rest Gnome Cemetery.  Over the years we have lost nearly 40 of our gnomes, so we set aside this spot to honor them.  Fortunately we still have plenty of the little guys running around and we seem to pick up more of them every day.

I love how Idelle looks so hardcore trying to wrestle all those ghosts but yet she has a feminine touch from the huge bow in her hair. And is her sleepwear from Master Suite?

Congratulations on your 7th (I mean 14th) Immortal. I do have to say though, I feel bad, as her great great great x4 grandfather Booker had a mean spirited ex girlfriend as well in the beginning of the game. Too bad Tiffanie can't have a midlife crisis.  :-\

Thank you for all the kind comments!

Wow, I never expected my gnome graveyard to make such an impression!  I've added about 10 more monuments since I took that screenshot, so now there are approx. 45 of them.

@kattiq - Pretty much all of Idelle's YA wardrobe is from Master Suite - every day top, formal gown, nightgown, athletic top, swimwear top, and hair.  It really was quite a good investment. 

About the whole nectar making vs. ghost hunting thing - I opted for ghost hunting originally for a couple of reasons:  more black ops than nectar making, something to do during a boring stretch of the game.  Unfortunately, Idelle's promotions are taking so long because she can't learn logic (it was Daniel's supermax skill) and there have been no black ops for either ghost hunting or nectar making (all her ops have been from her musical and athletic skills).  I ended up switching to nectar making as a career and she maxed it on the first day by selling about half the nectar she made as a teen.  Not too shabby!

Of course, now I have 11 more sim days of doing nothing but making sure she keeps her best friends...    ::)
