*hums Jaws tune*

They're coming... SAVE YOURSELVES FROM THE SHARKS!!

Can't wait to see Laura's nooboo. Kenyon's reaction to 'We're pregnant' was just classic!

With these sharks and the new shark death from Island Paradise, I'm going to have some fun with the shark fear I think. Until Nate caught one I totally didn't remember they exist! And yeah, Kenyon's not the brightest spark but that's okay. Neither are most of the rest of them.

Oh no! Actual sharks! Prepare for Iris to go mad. Ear muffs, blindfold, oxygen mask. Triple check. I can't wait to see the nooboo!

I like that you mention blindfold - part of Kelsey's never-seen sleepwear is one of the eye masks from Master Suite. Might have to get Iris one now!

Hahaha finally a real shark. Talk about a Cassandra Truth. Now, prepare yourself for the painful but necessary puns.
Well done! Now you've got some Goode genes in the family!

The Goode genes are looking awesome in the family! There's also nothing wrong with a good pun. Apart from the fact that most puns aren't good puns.

Because a) its the 1000th post in this thread, b) I got University Life ages ago but haven't played with it much, and c) because I'm ill and not feeling very funny to write a full update, here's some bonus shots for you all of the CrumpleSteels at University.



Hazel, one of the two fairly-normal family members, is enjoying the Science skill.



Abbie's making some new friends.

Abbie: Hey, I'm doing Fine Arts, my name's Abbie, what's yours?

Wanda: I'm Wanda, doing Business, I'm from Sunset Valley.

Abbie: Same!

Wanda: That's so freaky! When did you graduate school? I swear I've not seen you around before.

Abbie: Ooh, several hundred years ago now I'd say.

Wanda: What?

Abbie: It's a long story.



Kelsey is taking advantage of the new microphones to warn the world about the shark danger.



I don't think the world is paying attention.



Meanwhile, Iris is... what are you doing Iris? I can't tell.

Iris: Getting rid of all the sharks from campus. Kelsey told me to.

Kelsey says a lot of things, I don't think they're all worth listening to.



Sam's... naked.



And although not perhaps normal for most students on the first day, Abbie's up there in the normal camp for this group by studying.

Abbie: If I want to get a degree, I'll have to work for it.

Sam: I don't want to get a degree. I just came here for the juice.



Lexa: Mwahaha. They think I'm writing a business plan for my coursework! I am, of a sort. It's a business plan to take over the world! Mwahahahahahahaha!

Why take over the world from home if you can do it while not aging at University?



Sam: Is it just me or is fire really quite hot?

Get well soon.

Thanks! Feeling slightly better today, so going to attempt an update in a bit.

All Hands, No Feet



Nathaniel: Look at me!

Why?

Nathaniel: Because I can fish one-handed.

I'm supposed to be writing a clever, funny and generally awesome update for the forum, I doubt they'll be interested in that.

Nathaniel: I doubt you'll succeed to be clever or funny.

Nice.

Nathaniel: So are you.



Standard DecaDynasty shot of the one with the charisma skill doing some friend-making.



Iris: The sharks! The sharks! They're onto us, I knew it, they've killed me!

Oh Iris. I would correct you, but I'm too sad you're going. It's too soon, even though you're 99.



Grim: Actually, mate, you're dying of old age. Shark deaths aren't arriving for at least another five days in the UK.

The Reaper isn't as polite as me.

Iris: You don't understand! Death won't stop me on my anti-shark crusade! I knew the Sharks arriving into Twinbrook was a bad omen! Also, I'm not your mate.

Grim: *sigh* Just get into the urn. *to himself* I knew Artie was trying to give me this one because she'd be trouble. I knew he wasn't having a family emergency. More likely just didn't want the argument.

Iris: Is the urn shark proof?

Grim: If it'll make you get into it, then of course it's shark proof.



Grim: Sims.



Grim: They can't even do the washing up properly.



And Laura chooses a great time to go into labour.

Laura: Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow.



Meet Connor. An easily-impressed couch potato.



Kenyon: A baby. I have a baby. Why do I have a baby?

Let me tell you about the birds and the bees.

Kenyon: I know about that! I'm just... not ready. I don't think I'll ever be ready. I have to keep it alive and it doesn't even seem to have any feet.

Yeah, the last one's a valid point.

Kenyon: Shouldn't children have feet? Is he going to die of foot-loss?

Okay, now we're straying into the realms of madness again. Just because Iris has gone to the great anti-shark army in the sky doesn't mean you have to try and take over her role.

Kenyon: What if he's going to die though?!



Nathaniel: I'm so excited to see you, Pansy!

Pansy: Cool.



Nathaniel: I love you and I want to be with you forever, until we both go old and grey. I've just got to catch 350 fish first.

Pansy: Why do we need 350 fish in our relationship?

Nathaniel: The watcher says so. Don't look at me.



Pansy: But why would I want to look at anyone else?

Forum: Awww.



Nathaniel: [insert cheesy line about stars here]

Pansy: That's just lazy Watcher dialogue.

I have the flu.

Pansy: Good for you.



Zombie Lady: I love that Nathaniel. I'm going to have him. He'll be all mine! Mine!

Creepy.



Just a picture I found funny. This is a child ghost called Wilhelmina freaking out at a ghost in the graveyard. Firstly, where else should ghosts be? And secondly, lass, you're a ghost. Might not want to look in a mirror if you're so afraid.



Laura's pregnant again.



And it's time for Connor to grow up.



Kenyon: He has feet! I didn't break him after all!

We told you so.



Isn't he a cutie?

I'm impressed at how funny you made Iris' death. I don't feel too sad about losing her, because I know she'll continue to be just as mad and the afterlife is a sweet deal for the CrumpleSteels. Ad of course Connor is adorable! Look who he's got for a grandfather! (No, I will not ever let that go)

So am I. She was such a fun sim to play. She's a strong contender for my favourite heir in this dynasty.

Grim: *sigh* Just get into the urn.
That made me so think of the M&M's advert: "Just get in the bowl."

Great updates! :)

I'd completely forgotten about that advert! Do you know if it shows on Sim TV? Maybe that's where Iris gets her ideas from, advertising!

Aww! Connor is adorable! I'm sure there will be plenty of time for Iris to campaign against sharks in the sky with all the other weirdos. RIP Iris CrumpleSteel.

The sky is definitely full of weirdos, and that's just all my sims that are up there.

I've been reading the Crumplesteel saga for a while. I love it. But why did Iris have to die? And right before Island Paradise came in too!

I actually did consider giving her an age-freeze potion and making her effectively immortal. I really really really didn't want to lose her! But my computer's rubbish and it doesn't cope well with keeping track of too many things at once in-game (though it's not as bad as my work computer which can't open another tab on the internet without freezing...), and given that I'm only a generation off finishing I'm not going to chance anything. I also won't be installing Island Paradise until after the DecaDynasty's over, for that reason! I was scared enough about patching the CrumpleSteels!

*wipes eyes* First Kelsey and now Iris. Who will stop the sharks now? At least Connor is adorable. Silver lining, right?

Technically, Kelsey never died in the story. I left Sunset Valley with Lexa when she was still in the adult stage, so I like to think Kelsey's still kicking around and causing trouble. That's why she's never appeared in any of the interlude chapters.

I'm impressed at how funny you made Iris' death. I don't feel too sad about losing her, because I know she'll continue to be just as mad and the afterlife is a sweet deal for the CrumpleSteels. Ad of course Connor is adorable! Look who he's got for a grandfather! (No, I will not ever let that go)

I started off in the dynasty trying to make the deaths touching, but that's just totally not Iris. I'm surprised Nate grew up so well adjusted with Iris for a mother. Would you believe I've never played with Goodwin Goode? I might have to now just to see what's so goode about him!

I wish Connor looked more like Kenyon! :(

RIP Iris. May the afterlife be shark-free (until Shark Racket dies, of course).

I was disappointed with how Laura-like his face was too. That's pretty much the reason Laura's pregnant again. Shark Racket is still an adult I think, so Iris has a little while of peace yet.

I know she's not dead, but gone is bad enough, I think.

This Interlude Sponsored by Patch 1.55



Iris [to herself]: Never did get to finish my sculpture. It's a conspiracy. I know it is. That was going to be my great work, my lasting legacy. And now look where I am. I'm wherever this is. Stupid river. Might have sharks in.



Iris: Sharks. Hang on. Why am I blue? And red? WHY HAVE I DIED FROM DEATH BY SHARK? Grim promised me! Promised me!



Iris: "Actually, mate, you're dying of old age. Shark deaths aren't arriving for at least another five days in the UK." Actually, mate, you're wrong. If you spent a little more time getting your facts right and a little less calling people who aren't your friends 'mate', we might not be in this situation!



Iris: No! Wait! It's all Grim's fault! He never actually promised me the urn was shark-proof! What if one got into the urn when the Grim wasn't looking? I hate him! I'll get you eaten by a shark, Grim, see how you like it!



Iris: I knew I was right about the sharks though.

Elixir Clerk: Please stop glaring in my store, you're scaring the customers. In fact, it might be better if you leave.

Iris: Fine, victimise me as well as everyone else.



Iris: Being right doesn't feel great though. It feels a lot like being dead.

Voice: Aha. There you are. You're late.

Iris: I'm dead. I can't be late again. Leave me alone.

Voice: Tell that to your great-great-grandmother.

Oh, Iris.  You're nearly as wonderful as Kelsey.

So that's what shark-death ghosts look like, is it?  I've patched but haven't really done anything more than enjoy the relief from insanely fast skilling.  Note to self: poke around some more next time the game's fired up.

I can't wait to see where all these interludes are leading - although, if I were a Grim, I'd be worried.  Very, very worried.

Oh no, hopefully you're able to get it sorted soon. The damage in mine wasn't too bad in the end thankfully. She's only been dead for half an update, woman! I'll upload her to the Swap Shop perhaps.

Yeah, I think it's quite a cool colour. I went into CAS after patching to do something completely different and found it. It's too perfect for Iris! I havebm't had chance to play around with any of the other bits of the patch though.

And yes, Grim should probably be fairly worried.

Nothing serious, just the slow-skilling glitch driving me nuts. It's only been half an update? That seems so long! IRIS! I MISS YOU!

Life Without Iris



Laura: Kenyon, I love you!

Kenyon: What have you done?

Laura: Isn't a girl allowed to slightly violently kiss her husband for no reason?



Laura: Also I'm pregnant again.

Kenyon: Is it in there?

Laura: No, I'm storing it in the treehouse until it's ready to be born.



Kenyon: Hello in there baby. Would you like daddy to buy you a teddy bear for when you come out of there? A cute teddy bear for the cute little kid?



Kenyon: Wahoo! I'm going to be a daddy again!

Laura: Come down, Connor needs his nappy changing.



Laura: Men. Seriously.



Connor is my test baby for the new-ish toddler skilling items. Teaching himself to talk was surprisingly quick. I'd say they're probably more use in an immortal dynasty than this one though, seeing as it's not like Kenyon or Laura actually have any requirements to complete and they've probably got time to train Connor.

Connor: Hello fowum.



Laura: Ahhh. Salmon. What? I've got cravings.



Kenyon: And my new book's about a girl who...

Justin: Sounds great. Don't spoil then ending though, for when I read it.

Kenyon: Someone reads my books?!



Meanwhile, Nate is fishing. He's nearly caught the 350 fish he needs...

Nathaniel: I hate fishing. Let me stop.



Kenyon: So. Connor. Remind me how I change your nappy?

Connor: Connor smelly.

Kenyon: I know. That's why I need you to tell me how I change your nappy.



Laura: One more push, one more push...

Maid: Ahhhh! She's dying, help us, help us, help us!



Meet Alison. Named after Alys. She's easily impressed and evil. Odd combination.



Nate and Pansy try to keep their relationship up while Nate's still doing his requirements. He was 20 fish off finishing his skill at this point, still has to finish his career and needs a lot of opps. I don't know why he's just not getting them.



Kenyon: So as soon as I figured out nappy changes on Connor, I'm faced with a nappy change where I can't even see a nappy.

At least you know babies have legs somewhere now.

Kenyon: Yes. That I do know.



Connor teaches himself to walk, outdoors, at 3am. There's some responsible parenting right there.



Justin: I could do with a nap, not to die. But meh. Maybe there'll be beds in the afterlife, and maybe I'll get to be with Iris properly.

RIP Justin, father to the 9th generation but he never quite managed to marry Iris. The game would never let it happen.



Before we end this chapter, spot the heir.

Connor is SO cute! He looks so much like toddler Kieran to me, even though they aren't even related so it makes no sense.

Laura and Kenyon's conversations are so funny! Kenyon seems utterly clueless. About everything. It's quite adorable.
