Sure. The perfect spouse arrives, now that he's not needed. How inconsiderate.

I should have had my sim-kids build sandcastles indoors while I had the chance! :( It looks cute when Erin does it.

Oh, and I'm glad that someone finally agrees with me on self-cleaning appliances.

It's adorably cute, if also really, really weird. I love the never-havingt-to-clean aspect of self-cleaning appliances, but at the same time...

*snicker*  Oh Irs... I swear, she just keeps gettin' better an' better!  Eddie's adorable!  Seems so odd to know this is the last generation!

It really does seem odd! I'm excited to finish but it's a weird idea at the same time.

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

Pretty much exactly what me and my next-eldest sister do as well :) We're 21 and 23 now...

Sure. The perfect spouse arrives, now that he's not needed. How inconsiderate.

Murphy's Law. And with all the hassle I went to to find a spouse for Iris as well...

...actually, maybe all that means is nobody wanted to marry Iris.

Iris is so weird!!! It tickles me to bits! Hehehe :)

Weird, but probably in a good way!

There's hardly anything happening, yet you still manage to make it entertaining!
Big kuddo's to you! And as always... thank you for writing!  ;D

Thanks! And thank you for reading :) I think Erin might have fewer chapters than most of my other heirs had, simply because she's having such a boring life!

Nothing Continues to Happen



Erin: Can I age up yet? Please?

All it means is you'll have slightly more options of ways to do absolutely nothing...

Erin: And it means cake.

Good point.



Iris: Careful with those candles! Don't you know fire can kill your eyebrows?!

Do you mean singe? Or burn?

Iris: It can do both those things as well. But if your eyebrows die, they NEVER come back.



Erin: Looks like they're still here to me, Granny.

Pansy: I think an invisible mother-in-law is even more annoying than a visible one. You can't ignore the door and pretend you're out.



Here's teen Erin. With her eyebrows intact.

Iris: It's worth being aware of the dangers...



She became Charismatic. And, as usual, dressed in pink.



Having your birthday on a weekend brings massive benefits - firstly being able to escape your family ASAP. While Nate and Pansy are eating cake and Iris is doing her weekly review of the house's shark defences, Erin heads off to the Ampitheatre.



To meet a BOY.

Erin: Hey.

Eddie: Hey.

*awkward silence*



Eddie: How was your bir... *muffled sound*

Erin and Eddie, sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G!

Erin: Both my feet are firmly on the ground, last I checked.



The outing turns into a date (aww), but Erin still manages to find time to go make a new friend in NPC firefighter Seamus.



That isn't popular with Eddie.

Eddie: Hey! Who d'you think you are? I'm her boyfriend, not you, even if you're older and cooler and a firefighter and stuff! It's me she wants, fire-boy!



Erin: My boyfriend, are you?

Eddie: Erm. If you want me to be... I guess I'd like to be.

Erin: I want you to be, my fluffy-wuffy bear.

Eddie: My beautiful smooshums.

Ewwwww.



After a lot more smushy talk, Erin heads off to spend time with her other relatives (the less mad ones). This is Connor, who's a Young Adult now. For Audren's benefit, Connor is Laura's kid, and Laura was Nathaniels Imaginary Friend. I really, really do need to make a family tree for these guys.



Sort-of-Uncle Kenyon beats Erin at table football.

Erin: Not fair, you've had years of practice!



And Alice, Connor's sister, stares evilly through windows. That's obviously what you do with your Saturday night, right?



Iris: Youth of today. Always so self-obsessed. You never caught me looking at myself in a mirror.

No, you were too busy fighting sharks that were nowhere to be seen and arguing with yourself.

Iris: Exactly! Sensible pasttimes!



In other news (and away from Iris...)

Iris: You can NEVER escape me!

Parker: Don't you think you should have your elder makeover, Nate?

Nathaniel: I'm happy how I am. I look cool.

Parker: You look like you stole your outfit from a bin.

Nathaniel: It's only got a few stains on it!



But he submits anyway.



Nathaniel: Argyle print, that's a young man's fashion. That'll keep them thinking I'm an Adult.

*snorts, snickers, then bursts into laughter* Oh my... that last line had me giggling for way too long lol.  Also loved Eddie trying to defend his own manhood... against the firefighter: "Eddie: Hey! Who d'you think you are? I'm her boyfriend, not you, even if you're older and cooler and a firefighter and stuff! It's me she wants, fire-boy!"  Again, that line had me cracking up.

He he he. I'm glad to know that I can keep track of people by now.  ;D

Odd time to ask this, but where did Connor's hair come from? It looks like a dirty blonde with some gray in it, but I thought Goodwin's hair was a lighter blonde. Did it come from somewhere else?  ???

Maybe the next time I comment, I'll reflect on stuff that actually happened in the current generation.  :P

Maybe Alice is waiting for something evil. Ha! For all we know she may listen to a tiny voice in her head that says: "Sharks! There still out there to get us..." The poor girl looked absolutely bored, though.
Glad to see Erin kept her (pencil-thin) eyebrows. She's gorgeous. Great update! :)

Erin really grew up well! I kind of wish she got some genes from Pansy, but she's still really adorable. And I love the pattern on her shirt and how she still has a nice guy who she doesn't even need to marry.

Also, Connor and Erin look like they could be blood relatives. Weird. I like Alice, though. How can I not like a girl who looks like her original townie grandparents and looks out the window evilly?

Erin is so incredibly lovely. I don't know which was the best part: Erin, Eddie, and the firefighter or Iris's continued ranting about everything and nothing at all. Or maybe it was Nathaniel in that neon green argyle sweater.

Either way, it was all hilarious. :)

Thanks! Eddie's reaction to Erin going up to that firefighter was just too funny not to get put in! I'm glad other people liked him too.

I jumped of my bed and hit the celing when I saw an update! And then I almost fell off it while laughing! Thank you very much. ;) Erin is absolutely beautiful, and Eddie is hillarious!

That must have hurt! And she is, isn't she? Shame she won't necessarily be having children. I might have to give her and Eddie some anyway once this is over.

Thanks for brightening up my sick day with some Iris....ness.  ;D

Hope you feel better now! Irisness, I like that. I like that a lot.

He he he. I'm glad to know that I can keep track of people by now.  ;D

I'm not sure. It's the same hair Alice has, except I took the dark grey roots out of hers, and also the same as Kenyon's. I think it must have come from Jenni Jones-Brown, just from looking at her Sims Wiki page.

Oh my goodness, I didn't expect Erin to be so gorgeous! Take that, Twinbrook!

I know I stare out a window creepily every Saturday night. Best part of the week.

*backs away slowly*

Maybe! Poor Alice if she does. And yeah, I'm glad Erin kept her eyebrows too! I thought about giving her really bushy ones just to prove a point to Iris, but that would have been cruel...

Erin really grew up well! I kind of wish she got some genes from Pansy, but she's still really adorable. And I love the pattern on her shirt and how she still has a nice guy who she doesn't even need to marry.

I wish she had some genes from Pansy too. I don't even know how I managed to get absolutely no Twinbrook genes into her and Nathaniel! Ah well. I like Alice too, I'm planning to save her to my bin and use her for other things.

Finally caught up with the story!! I started somewhere in summer I believe, lol. Your story is great!! I absolutely am in love with it and I'm sad that It is nearing its ending :((((((.

So am I, in a way! Well done for catching up on all 46 pages!

The Dangers of Wishing That Stuff Would Happen

(and the dangers of excessively long titles)



Erin: 4,600 simoleans! For that! It looks like it belongs in the 18th century.

It's called an antique.

Erin: Oh, like Grandma Iris?

Iris: Oh you think you're so funny. Hahahahaha. I'm crying with laughter.



Nathaniel: A new type of easy chair?! Pansy, do you mind if we replace the sofa with a chintz recliner? It just looks so comfortable!

Erin: Dad, you're so embarassing. This is the worst day of my life.



Erin: No, wait. This is the worst day of my life. Can't you put any clothes on, Dad?

Iris: Eating breakfast in your nightwear? That's nothing! I used to go out in mine!

Erin: Just because you did something, doesn't mean everyone else should. In fact it's probably more like the opposite.



Nate is a bit of a zombie-magnet.

Girl-Zombie: Oh hey there gorgeous!

Man-Zombie: Nathaniel CrumpleSteel! Yay!



A nice bit of father-daughter bonding happens, with a game of catch.

Erin: You're going down, Dad!



Nathaniel: Am I? Am I really?



Erin: OW! Daaaaaad! Mum, Dad's chucking the ball at my head!

Nathaniel: I think you just 'went down'.



Parker: Oh. This is highly unfair. Dying and my hair has mysteriously disappeared.

Iris: Mwahahaha, I stole... oh. Not appropriate.



Parker: Do you think in the afterlife I could have my hair back?

Grim: Sure. Just come along quietly and I'm sure we can arrange that.



Eddie and Erin go to prom together. He pulls good faces to caption and he dresses appropriately for prom? This guy's a keeper.



And in other news, Erin finds an umbrella really shocking.

Yeah, let's move on from that quickly. For everyone's sanity.



Nate's taken up fishing again.

Nathaniel: I was bored.

I needed a collection for Erin.

Nathaniel: Can't you let me have anything that's just for my own amusement? You wouldn't even let me have that recliner!



Erin: Dad, Watcher, both of you are so embarassing.

Iris: See? It's what I've been telling you for years!

Erin: Grandma Iris, you're worse than embarassing.

Iris: That also confirms what I already know - I'm better than the Watcher!

Better at being annoying, yeah, I won't deny that.



It's never too early to start cultivating your best friends.

Or possibly Erin's just trying to kid herself she has a normal life.



And we close this episode with Pansy's death. Two deaths within a week is clearly what the consequences of demanding something happens soon is. Sorry Pansy. We'll miss you, even though you were barely ever in the story and I pretty much left you on free will after you gave birth to Erin.

RIP Prudences. :( I always get really sad when Pansy dies in my own games since she's usually one of the last original townies to go.

I didn't notice how adorable of an old man Nathaniel is until now, even without the awesome sweater. His face while playing catch is the best.

You did indeed :) Though I'm not sure if her realising it this time means she ever will again. This is Iris we're talking about here.

Awww, RIP guys.  *salutes*  Nate just gets better and better lol and Iris... Oh Iris... The fact that she realizes she did something inappropriate is... enlightening lol

I've got a lot better idea of Nate's personality now than I did before! He's also now able to do interesting things rather than constantly fishing, poor boy.

Erin's hair really fits her personality :P

I think so too! Glad you like it.

Two deaths in a week is rough. At least Nathaniel knows how to keep things lively, though. ;)

It was. Just as the mourning moodlet from Parker had disappeared, it's back. Nate's bonkers, but in a good way I think. In a more normal way than Iris, at any rate.

Another Last



Eddie: Eurgh. Calculus.

Erin: Today was our last day of school. Why're we doing this homework?

Eddie: Calculus has enslaved our very souls.

Iris: No, that's sharks.

Eddie: Who the hell was that?!



Erin: Hey, Grandma! Stop scaring my boyfriend, or else!

Iris: Ahhhh! A funny face! Noooo, you'll kill me!

Erin: Works every time. And I don't even understand why.



Melissa: Haha, you're so funny Erin. It's hilarious how you made up a grandmother to scare Eddie like that. Who was really talking to him?

Erin: No, really. That was my grandma. Just don't ask, it's for the best.

Nathaniel: So. You're looking after my daughter, then?

Eddie: Try as I might, I can't be scared of a guy in neon green argyle.

Nathaniel: What's wrong with my jumper?!



A previously unknown defence against zombies: baby cries.



What disturbs me about this photo is how the baby's mum doesn't seem all concerned about the situation. Hello? There's a brains-eating undead creature behind your son, and you're going to feed him rather than running away with him? Do you want your child eaten?



Iris: Zip-e-dee-doo-dah, zip-e-dee-day, my oh my what a wonderful day! Plenty of zombies, heading our way! Zip-e-dee-doo-dah, zip-e-dee-day!

Melissa: Your house is bonkers.

Erin: You're telling me.

Iris: I'm not bonkers, sharks are afraid of zombies. And sandcastles, but zombies are easier to transport.



Finally, Erin's boring teen years are over and it's time for her to become a Young Adult.

Nathaniel: My little girl is growing up, people are going to know I'm old now. Sucks.

Erin: Yeah, because the grey hair didn't give it away?

Nathaniel: I can arrange for yours to be dyed grey, if you like. Overnight. While you sleep.

Erin: Scary.



Erin: Why does my hair clip disappear when I age up?



She becomes Ambitious.



And gets a new pink outfit.



First task is to get a job in the Politics career. Her supermax will be Charisma, and she's picked Leader of the Free World for her lifetime wish.



Second task is to get started on that charisma skill and it's challenges properly. Therefore, befriend everyone she meets. She starts in the obvious place, her fairy co-worker Maribel.

Erin: I like astronauts. Even the ones in Star Trek.



Scary woman in very little clothing is also a target.



And the bunch of high school kids in the park.

Erin: You know, you're smart. You could be a doctor if you stopped wasting your time in the park.

I don't think 'Give Useless Career Advice to 10 Sims' is a challenge for the Charisma skill, Erin.



And then...



If the last birth in the dynasty is an odd occasion, the last death is even more so. Poor Nathaniel. At least he lived to see his child grow up, and he got to die in his jumper.

Nathaniel: I'm dying and you can't even ignore the jumper. Typical. It's a nice jumper!

Iris: Yay! You're coming to join Mummy!

Nathaniel: Please Grim. Please. Keep my mother away from me.

Grim: Only if you'll keep her away from me.

Nathaniel: Deal.



Poor Erin too.

RIP Nathaniel. Hopefully you'll never have to fish in the afterlife.

Good luck with finishing the requirements, charisma is an easy one, and I have to admit, you planned everything very well :)
