So glad Iris is back! Pansy is actually good-looking, especially for someone from Twinbrook. She reminds me of Olivia de Havilland.

Yeah, she's a lot prettier than I was expecting her to be even after seeing her as a teen. She must have grown into her features as an adult.

10



Marc Brandt: Erm, I hope whoever you're spying on isn't me because I can see you. And actually, so can the whole beach.

Parker: **it!

The baby, Iris.

Iris: Do this, Iris. Do that, Iris. Make me a cup of tea, Iris.

Now that I think about it, tea would be nice.



Generation 10 has been born.

Iris: Her name's Erin.

That's my job!

Iris: My job now.

Erin is Excitable and Good. And she's the final baby of the dynasty!

Iris: I should've been the last. I'm the most important.



Pansy: Most people get at least some kind of a break from their mother-in-law. But oh no. Not me.



I'll give you a new outfit as a consolation prize?

Pansy: Can't she just go away?

Trust me, I want her to as well.



Nathaniel: Oooh, my precious little coutchie-coo. Who's my little girly? Such a cute and fuzzy-wuzzy little girly!



Nathaniel: And thanks to Kenyon I even know you've got legs. I do!

Parenthood can turn even the most sensible of sims a little bit bonkers.

Iris: It didn't make me bonkers.

No, you were too far gone already.



We took barely any pictures of the baby days, because it's pretty much just diaper-eat-sleep-cry-snuggle-repeat. So here's Erin's first birthday party.

Parker: I won't drop her, will I?

Iris: No idea. Depends if you let go of her.



Nathaniel: My little girl's getting bigger!

Party Guest: Ooh, they have Sim City.



Parker: Oops. At least I didn't pee on the baby.

Small mercies.

Iris: Are you sure it's pee and not your waters breaking? Sometimes people don't know they're pregnant until then.

Parker: I'm a man.

Iris: So?

Iris, did I ever explain to you about the birds and the bees?



Pansy: Hahaha! They say people get incontinent when they're really old, so you must be really old!

Parker: I have the world's most supportive little sister.



And here she is! Blonde hair (from where?) and features mostly passed down from Nathaniel.

Iris: And therefore from me.

Always have to bring yourself into it.



Nathaniel: Hey, Parker. How're your trousers? Have they dried out yet?

Parker: Really? Still bringing that up?

Nathaniel: Checkmate.

Parker: Oh. This is the worst day ever.

Iris: I can make it worse, if that'll help.

Parker; What do you think?

Iris: I think that's a yes!



The rest of the chapter will just be Erin-spam. Her favourite colour's pink, if you can't tell.

Iris: I want one.



Iris: Can I have one? Can I have a baby?



No.



Iris: But whhyyyy? I want a baby!



Iris: Life's so unfair.

Welcome Erin! She is so adorable. And Iris, Nathaniel is still recovering from you raising him up. I don't think you should have more kids. But I still love you, you're definately my favourite character

I know she is! And totally. Nate may never get over the trauma of having Iris as his mother. I can't pick favourites out of my sims, but she's up there I think.

Iris, the thought of you having more children is a truly awesome, yet terrifying prospect XD  And Erin is just adorable!

You have to wonder what any future children would turn out like as well. Possibly normal, possibly mad like Iris, or worse than Iris...

Oh Iris, Iris...you are just too much.

Erin is such a doll! :D

I keep worrying I'm going to run out of lines for Iris, but nope - she pretty much writes herself!

So, so, so close! Erin is cute, and Iris, you are ever hilarious!

I know! They're both adorable, in their own special ways.

OMG! Generation 10!
Love Iris (of course) and Pansy. It's so close now, I can hardly contain my excitement. What a twist! :)

That was pretty much my reaction when Erin was born as well. I can't quite believe I've got this far with it. And what would a dynasty story be without a twist near the end!

Generation 10! Whoot! I always loose interest around generation 4 with things like this, so it makes me jealous to see people with more commitment than me.  >:( But really, congrats.  :D

I normally do as well, but posting it on the forum really really helped me see it through this far. I've got so many unfinished legacies! I'm slow, though, so I'm always jealous of the speed others manage to complete these things at.

Cute baby, yay! Where did the blonde come from, I wonder?

I've got no idea! The last blonde in the family was Anais, I think, and that's two whole worlds ago. The only other blonde heir is Sam. And obviously Agnes is blonde, but this is a different shade to hers (and Sam's). Must be a random mutation, unless Justin has some kind of blonde gene (like Agnes and her ginger gene) to pass on.

Growing Up on Speed 3

I apologise now for the quality of pictures in the next couple of updates. My computer's old and it's struggling to render things properly, so the backgrounds will look a bit weird for a while. The quality improves again when I learn from it and start waiting for things to render before I take a screenie.



This sim learns how to avoid being questioned by private investigators - swim as far out as you can and they can't come and get you. That's a free tip for all you criminal sims out there!

Iris: He'll get his comeuppance when a shark eats his leg.

Parker: If that'll get him to confess to stealing the flamingo...



Pansy becomes an elder. There'll be no siblings or IFs this generation - just Erin.

Iris: I had eight of them and I turned out alright.

I'm fairly sure you only have five siblings.

Iris: Oh, are you talking about siblings? I'm talking about imaginary friends.

You never got an IF doll.

Iris: YOU CAN'T CONSTRAIN MY IMAGINATION TO DOLLS!



And Erin learns to walk (a.k.a toddler cute photos).



Iris: When I was young, we had to teach ourselves to walk...

No you didn't.

Iris: And we lived underground on the moon. The youth of today don't know how good they have it.

Pansy: Please, Iris, don't tell lies to the child.

That bit's actually true. She did live on the moon.

Pansy: Perhaps the lack of oxygen up there explains her.

Iris: Oi! I can breathe oxygen!



Parker: Excuse me lady, but have you happened to see a flamingo loose in the area?

For once, it almost seems like the townies have got the hang of fashion. These outfits aren't what I'd choose, but they match and are SimFest-appropriate.



Oh wait.

Iris: Oh hello there, gorgeous!

Flipper-And-Speedo Man: Who said that?

Iris: OMG. People can hear me but not see me! This is going to be amazing!

Iris, no. Whatever it is you're going to do, no!

Iris: BRB.



Parker: Aha! A reciept for a flamingo passport! He must have taken it out of the country!



Remember Connor? He's doing what teenage boys normally do at family parties - eat and hide from all the embarassing people that are related to him.



Because, yes, it's Erin's next birthday already. Pansy's having a slight hair problem.

Iris: Why's it coming out of her forehead like that? Ew.

Where've you been?

Iris: You know, places. Doing stuff. Like pretending to be a ghost in the house of the guy who runs the Supernatual Skeptic Society.



Pansy: Can't we get rid of her?

I wish.

Iris: You can't get rid of Erin! She's your daughter.

Pansy: We meant you.

Iris: You can't get rid of me either. I'm your mother-in-law. I'm even more omnipresent.



Erin: If I don't open my eyes, my family isn't this mad.



Laura: Well, I feel sorry for Pansy, but I'd much rather Iris was here than in my house.

Kenyon: Agreed.



Child Erin's new hairstyle.



Child Erin's new everyday outfit.



The first thing she does as a child is head out and make some new friends. She gained the Good Sense of Humour trait.

Erin: Hello, my name's Erin.

Elspeth: Aren't you adorable?

Erin: I'm a princess. Are you a princess too?

Elspeth: I don't think so.

Erin: You can be a princess because you have a sparkly thing in your hair and it's pretty.



Erin: And when I'm older I'm going to have a pony and a cat and be a famous famous person. But I don't know what I'll do to become famous yet.

Iris: Hello? Hello? Can anyone hear me? I think I'm stuck in the table football set?

Erin: Grandmaaaa. I'm talking! Stop playing your pranks!



Nathaniel: Finally. They let me be in this update now. I'm old news, not even allowed in the updates anymore.

Well, you *are* the previous heir.

Nathaniel: Ignore me. It's fine. I don't care. I have my wife and my chess set. And nachos. Mmm nachos.

Iris: Son, you're weird.



Nathaniel: And if you have three teddy bears and Grandma takes two, how many do you have left?

Erin: Grandma's invisible. She can't pick up teddy bears! And besides, she's my Grandma, she ought to bring me teddy bears instead of taking them away.



Nathaniel: It's a valid point, but your Grandma's not normal.

No, she's a dynasty heir.

Erin: What's a dynasty air?

Nathaniel: I'll explain when you're older.



Erin: Watcher? Watcher?!

What?



Erin: Why is the bus driver dressed for the beach?

I have no idea.

Iris: Because I stole all her other clothes.

Erin: GRANDMAAAA!

I reckon it wasn't, but I'm sure she'd tell you that it was! I've seen Erin as a YA now and yep, she's pretty when she grows up.

Erin did grow up cute I think she looks very cute with her little pigtails. And Connor is cute too. But of course, he is descended from Goodwin Goode so this is expected.

The pigtails are one of my favourite children's hairstyles, they look good on pretty much anyone. I've never actually played with Goodwin Goode, maybe I should...

I confess that when you asked (probably rhetorically) "Remember Connor?" my answer was, "No, who is that?"  ??? (Long day)

My most sincerest apologies, Connor.  :P

He doesn't mind :) I find it hard to keep up with who's who in other people's stories a lot of the time, so I can totally sympathise.

*snickers*  I swear, Iris just gets better and better!  She never fails to crack me up.  And Erin is just adorable!  lol, I love the fact that Iris is the embarrassing family member, rather than her parents.

Iris, the embarrassing family member for two generations! She makes me laugh a lot too when I'm writing her. I get odd looks sat here sniggering away at myself(/Iris).

Totally hilarious! I love the way Iris is there, yet not there, yet there, and looks after Erin in her own domitable way - even if our little princess get annoyed with it all. Brilliant concept!  ;D

I think almost anyone would be annoyed by their grandma following them round permanently being very, very annoying! There may be more to it all then meets the eye though...

Sandy Bedrooms and Wasted Childhood

*Filler Episode warning*



I'll admit to getting far, far too excited when Erin met Eddie Himes in school. He's opposite gender, has a really nice house in town, and... oh. Wait. I don't need a spouse this generation.

Iris: Thicko.



He's even got awesome coloured eyes, and he's completely unnecessary for the dynasty. This was my first moment where it being the last generation sank in, I think.



Still, he'll be slightly useful for Erin's supermax skill, and seeing as she can't work on that until she's a teen anyway she might as well enjoy childhood. Endless games of tag it is then!

Iris: Why won't they let me play? S'not fair.

Erin: Invisible grannies can't play tag!

Eddie: Plus you smell.

Iris: How very dare you! I was never like that as a child!

No, you were worse.



Nathaniel: It's just occured to me that I spent all my time complaining about having to fish, and now I've got nothing to do I want to complain about that. All that's left to me in life is orange juice.

Pansy: What about me?

Nathaniel: Orange juice and my wife.



And your elder birthday.

Nathaniel: I don't want to cheer. Why am I cheering?



Nathaniel: Erin, darling, shouldn't you be off with that boy friend of yours? Daddy isn't fun right now. Daddy needs some private time.

Erin: Ew, he's not my boyfriend. Ewwwww. Don't be gross, Daddy.



Nathaniel: I knew a receding hairline was a possibility in old age, but I never thought the ends of it would fall off.

Iris: Always assume what you'd least assume, son.

Nathaniel: Thanks Mum. Thanks for another piece of highly useful and relevant advice.

Iris: No problem!



Blonde hair, purple eyes, thinks she's a queen - is Erin secretly Daenarys Targaryen?



In things that aren't Nate's birthday or Erin's boring boring childhood, Parker is on career 3 of 4. I changed his lifetime wish to Jack of All Trades and he's nearly there. He's currently a politician.



It might be going to his head.

Parker: In my day children were seen and not heard. These ones are in my way! I'm a campaign intern, don't you know!



This is one of the only interesting things that happened in Erin's childhood. For a while certain floorings allowed you to build sandcastles indoors, though it's been fixed in a patch now.



Weird but kinda cool.



Yet further proof that Erin's childhood consisted of doing absolutely nothing. Her Fun meter was pretty much constantly full though. By this point the entire family was basically on free will, except Parker when I needed him to do stuff towards his LTW.



Like sculpting. That's going to be his fourth career, so the sooner he gets started the more the sculptures will appreciate and the more chance he'll have of doing this before he dies of old age. (No, seriously. He was 94 at this point, and part of me wanted him to die ASAP).

Iris: You mean, mean person. Man up and kill him if you want him to die.

That's against dynasty rules, Iris.

Iris: I'm against dynasty rules.

You probably should be.

Iris: Your face is against dynasty rules.



Nathaniel: Self cleaning showers still scare me everytime.



Next time in the CrumpleSteel House: Erin becomes a teenager (not a day too soon), Parker completes his LTW (offscreen), and romance and firefighters are in the air.

And I promise the next chapter won't take 22 days to arrive again...

This sounds like me and my friend when we argue about pointless things. When neither of us can make a decent point, we usually just fall to shouting "YOU'RE UGLY" at each other. It's very mature, and so is Iris.  ;D
I'm not pedantic! I just believe in precision of language.
