The Octa Immortal Dynasty - COMPLETED
« on: January 10, 2012, 04:33:09 AM »
Hi, to fellow Simmers and Simmies  :-[
After reading through so many great stories, I decided to write one myself! YAY
I was torn between which challenge to take but I thought after playing Sims 3 for less than a year (I only bought all of the games after Pets was released so, I'm kinda new to the game), I should challenge myself. So that's why I picked the Immortal Dynasty Challenge.
Here goes nothing....

Chapter 1: New place to call home

Hi, my name is Flora Octa, whoever gave me my name should go bang at the wall. It sounds stupid =.=



I just moved to Bridgeport from places unknown. My wish is to attain immortality, and have 7 other generations reach the same status. The reason for this mission is to be left unknown~

Now off to my man hunt!

WOW, who is this hottie~

some flowers would do the trick ^.^

I know I'm too fast paced! But I couldn't resist!! And I got rejected!! Bummer, but we got married in the end.


Flora: Welcome home honey!!
Matthew: O.O


The next day, I started on my little garden, and I'm already pregnant. Thank God.
Matthew is well aware of my plan, so he thought we should hire our own home artist(for the portraits and sculptures), so he got around town and found just the right one to move in with us.

meet Olive Kipling, we quickly became best friend, and she is now painting my YA portrait. She's a nice person, wonder how she got by being the bouncer. I also happen to learn that she had a boyfriend but they broke up. T_T hope she will find her true love.


I'm on my 2nd day of pregnancy, and everyone is helping in the house so that I will have a smooth pregnancy.


It's coming!!

Oh wow, Flora is gorgeous! Good luck with her!

I personally find the Immortal Dynasty challenge to be a great way of exploring the game and finding things I didn't know about, as each generation has to SuperMax a completely different skill. So it's actually a pretty neat thing for a beginner to do!

You're founder is cute! Matthew would've come with a pretty nice car if you married him on a different lot and he drove there. You would've got a bit more cash to build a house.

Anyway I wish you good luck with your new dynasty.

Good luck with the dynasty! I'd only been playing a month when I started mine, I agree with Sutz that it's a great way to learn things. The view from your lot is amazing, too.

Chapter 2: An Ocean-full of Joy


He is a boy!! Although I had a wish to give birth to a girl but his eyes are so wonderful, skin so soft. He melted my heart.
His name will be Oceania Octa.


Matthew adores him, he spent most of his hours free to play with Oceania.

After three days of work in my garden I got 2 Perfect plants, 6 more to complete my LTW. The apples are selling good also, I'm currently a lvl 7 Gardener, but life will become more challenging now. In the mist of my busy work, Oceania grew up into a toddler.
I feel horrible as a mother. I was busy with work and had no time for my little Prince.


Oceania loves to play around the house, just like his name he has a fondness towards ships.


Matthew helped Oceania most of the toddler skills. Early childhood education is important and we did all the necessary to bring up our little Oceania.





Olive, on the other hand... Well she's in a pretty sticky condition now.  8)

Chapter 3: Time flies, so does ButterFlies

Matthew found this machine on sale the other day when he went to sell my harvest at the consignment store. I thought it would ease my gardening time but all it did was give me a spin around the garden.  :'(

Oh well, Oceania grew up into a child yesterday. We had a small party with only close friends around.

Oceania is funny in his own way, he play with the mirror when i ask him to change some clothes and hairstyle.



I notice Olive doing weird things lately. She's been going out a lot these days, and she kept looking at the mirror. She lost focus when she's working and ended sculpting something weird.



Then one night I noticed her with a man at the park in the middle of the night.

They talked, laughed, and shared a few kisses. I didn't know who he is but I bet they are dating.
Back at home, just when I was going to ask her about the man, she announce her pregnancy!

I was totally caught off guard of this. She said she doesn't want anyone else to know about this, Romeo (her boyfriend) is a triple agent. It would be bad if the news goes around town.
Romeo came visiting a few times, but always in the night. They would talk about their future and the baby all night long and Romeo will leave as soon as sun rise. Olive is well prepare for this, but sometimes she just couldn't hold her tears and cry. I hope she will feel better after the baby is born.


Until next time~

Authors note: Thanks for all the encouraging words! The dynasty is doing fine, being a 5 star celebrity is a great thing as both Matthew and Flora have very expensive cars to sell for the expansion of the house. Money doesn't pose a problem now, however I have problem getting the gardening Ops. That will be a very crucial point for Flora as she can't travel yet so its almost impossible to complete her skill challenge for the 19 plants!! Oh well.   :)

Chapter 4: Birthdays and Fires!


Matthew aged up to an elder. We decided to throw a party with close friends and his crew. The party turned out great! Just when the guest was leaving, Olive went into labour!!


Olive: I think my water broke!  :o

She gave birth to a beautiful son named Oliver Rake Kipling


The following day was my adult birthday, Olive's adult birthday and Oceania teenage birthday! We bought a new dining table, and threw a large party with all of our friends.


Oceania was first.

and FIRE!!!!



Olive and Apollo fainted (coward traits) but we manage to extinguish the flames before the fire department arrived.

Back to the birthday celebrations. The two firefighters decided to join the party, just in case for another fire.





They ate in the bathroom though, because we didn't have enough rooms.

Oliver grew up to a cute boy.




Both parents were extremely happy.

Matthew had an accident in the kitchen a few days ago.

While Oceania finds the ice block rather sticky. Just like Olive did, back in the days.


Matthew and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a kiss and some other activities. We also bought the Smuggler's Cove as our anniversary gift for each other.

Authors note: The fire was very unexpected! I was so scared that the immortals would die! Thank God I installed the fire alarm when I was renovating the museum. The house is still undergoing renovation though. I was shocked to see that Oceania inherited Matthew big jaw instead of Flora's. But at least he got very good looking eyes. Haha. Oliver was supposed to be a girl, I stuffed Olive with watermelons (like 10) but when she gave birth, I was like  :o. Now Oceania have to marry someone older or his Newspaper Girl best friend. His classmates are vampires other than the newspaper girl and another guy! Flora also got her fist gardening Op, it will be soon when the second one shows up! ^^ Until Next time.

Chapter 5: Growing Up and Growing Out

Oliver Rake got a new best friend, She's is named Faeries~ Well that's what he told us anyway. We had no idea about who she is though~~ maybe she's his imaginary friend.


We threw a party for Oceania's Young adult birthday. He grew up quite charming, just like Matthew~




For his birthday present, the whole family visited Champs Le Sims, France.


Matthew and I went for a little adventure for ourselves. We found lots of treasure, but little did we know that Oceania found his greatest treasure.

Chapter 6: A Thousand Years

After the wonderful trip to Champs Le Sims. We returned home. Oceania had his graduation on a Monday. The whole family attended of course.

I was very proud of Oceania, He graduated as his Class Valedictorian and was also voted Most Popular! 
To celebrate this, Matthew and I gave Oceania a wonderful gift.

The Extravagator 5000 with Oceania's favourite colour.


That night Matthew called me into our room. He said to me that it's almost time for him to go. Death is near him.

He knows that I will be lonely without him, but he held my hand and said to me.
Matthew: Be strong my flower, this is important for you. Just remember that I will always love you even if its a thousand years.


-----------

Chapter 7: Under the Sea of Love

Oliver grew up into a teen, a day before Charlotte arrived. We had a small birthday party, with only his dad and mom.

Charlotte came just in time for the wedding. After a little preparation....

We have the bride and the settings.



Oceania only invited Stephanie and Elijah to the wedding. Belisama wasn't able to attend due to her being a vampire.




I'm so glad Oceania decided to get married so soon. Matthew was so looking forward to seeing  his only son getting married.

Chapter 8: Speechless

The aftermath of the wedding is....

and lots of this....




It wasn't long for Charlotte to know she's pregnant. We were all happy for her, Matthew was very very excited to know the news and even pay for Charlotte 7500 simoleans spa packages! He even took out that dusty old guitar of his to play!!

The treatment was cut short though, with Charlotte returning home early.



Charlotte gave birth to Loveline and Isabelle.


Two days later, Olive and I are aging to our Elderhood. We threw a party for everyone we know!





We both aged gracefully I might say.



The twins aged up the next day. Isabelle is the one with black hair, while Loveline is the blonde one. Isn't both of them the cutest thing ever!!


They share a room on the first flow with superb view. Then it happened.... just when I was going to change Isabelle's diaper....





Author's Note: I was devastated..... much like Flora.... it came so unexpectedly. I won't post the stats this time since it didn't progress much. Flora still need a level on her job and also the last opportunity for her Ambrosia... till then pray for Flora that she will survive!!

Chapter 9: After His Death...

I'm Olive Kipling, you may remember me in my prime years when I serve as the Octa's house painter/sculptor.

Well, since I aged I'm on a semi-retired state, my son is slowly taking over my position as the house painter/sculptor.
Matthew's death was unexpected and unfortunate, Flora took it very hard, but she's still fighting on to complete the dynasty. She left the last Gardening Ops - The Omnificient Plant to complete her task, yet it seems like the opportunity will not reach her.

Days went by, with the girls as toddlers and no one else seems to be in a mood to take care of them, I became a babysitter for them, teaching them basic skills and cleaning after them.


The girls are very cute, Loveline, the older one is such a clumsy girl while Isabelle just can't stop being surprised and impressed!
Nothing change much for a few days, until one night while I was walking around the house, I heard weird sounds from Oceania's room.
I went in and what I saw was.... well I fainted, so I didn't really know. When I finally came to, I saw Flora hugging a spectre like being.
She was smiling and crying, then I realize it was Matthew. He came back.


His visit was not short though, he stayed and never left the house, but that really cheered Flora up, she definitely regain her spirit!

Soon, it was the coming of age for Oliver (my son) and the twins. Oceania threw a party and invited some of their friends and also Romeo (my boyfriend/husband).






After all the guest left, and we cleaned up everything, my phone rang~ It was a call I wished I never took.
It was from the police station. Romeo was shot to death when he was going back home. The shooter was not found and nothing could be done. Romeo was a figure that lives in the dark side of the city, it was probably one of the criminals he took in. The policemen didn't know who to contact, so they called the last number he dialed - Me.
I was asked to retrieve his belongings and body in the hospital. I was devastated.



Author's Note: Hi all~ Sorry for not updating for such a long period of time, I had lots of things going on. So, I can only bring bits and bits of Octa to you all. This capter is done differently as its not from Flora's point of view and is from a non-immortal view. The reason behind this is that I wanted to bring in a different kind of feeling, other than the immortals doing their thing and whatever, and also kinda explain the reason behind the lack of updates :P. Hope you all love it.
P.P.S: Any idea how to make Matthew go back to his urn in the morning? I don't mind him haunting but not all day long~ HELP

Chapter 10: The First Immortal

After Matthew's death I lost most of my passion, I continued to wait and wait and waited. My life was colourless, every minute without him is ever so painful. Then something happened, he came back. He wanted me to continue my fight and quest. He ask me to held a funeral for him, and move on with my life. I cried and cried, I did what he told me and after all of that I brought his urn to the local cemetery and left it there. I promised myself I will meet him again but my tears just won't stop as I drove back. After that ordeal, I came in terms with myself and what I need to do.




Oh, how I forgotten my cute little twin girls, they have all grown up.
Loveline started to play with the toy oven while Isabelle frequent the Cove for some fishing.




And then it came, the last BlackOps - The Omnificient Plant. Good thing I stockpiled tons of the steaks for this moment.
I handed in and completed the last requirements to the Ambrosia.




And I became the first immortal of this dynasty.
