Sigh...farewell to one of the most fun dynasty heirs yet. Goodbye Lexa...we will miss your devious plotting.

Exactly, R.I.P. Lexa.
And on a happier note I love the makeovers you gave to Kieran and Danny.

Kieran is definitly a Sekemoto. Little Danny(sorry Daniel)looks like he is going to be quite the character

They actually both age up to be quite handsome. In a Sekemoto way.

R.I.P Lexa Crumplesteel  :(

Poor Daniel,  having people call him Danny.I go ballistic when people call me anything but what I want to be  ;D So I can sympathize with him already.

My mum always calls me by a variation of my name nobody else uses and that I hate. So I can sympathise with him (and you!) too.

That made me laugh.

R.I.P Lexa! I think I might skip this generation because for some reason Daniel gives me the shivers.

That's strange! Ben is the one that creeped me out most in this dynasty. Maybe it's the cheekbones. They're really quite weird on a toddler.

Lexa:  So, either of them showing the right tendancies yet? Y'know. Kleptomania. Evil plotting. Maniacal laughter.
Tober: They just drink milk.
Lexa: Maybe I'll come back some other time.

That was so funny, and yet, so heartbreaking. RIP LEXA. It always hurts to see a great character go.
Maybe she will come back another time...
Danny and Kieran are very handsome. And totally cute, too.

Funny you should say that about her coming back! I'm going to miss her a lot in the story though. She always made it interesting.

Sigh...farewell to one of the most fun dynasty heirs yet. Goodbye Lexa...we will miss your devious plotting.

She was one of my favourite sims so far. As soon as I get chance she'll be going up on the swap shop along with a load of other CrumpleSteels.

Nooooooo... Lexa  :'(
How did Kieran end up with grey-ish hair?  ???

I have no idea! I invited Len (Kris' dad) round to see if it came from him but it didn't. His mum Gretle has died so I haven't been able to check if it was hers. And it doesn't come from the CrumpleSteel side of the family!

Exactly, R.I.P. Lexa.
And on a happier note I love the makeovers you gave to Kieran and Danny.

Thanks! I find toddlers and especially boys quite hard to dress but these two I think look alright :)

Interlude 3



One minute Lexa was in Lunar Lakes, explaining the logic of underfloor gravity to her daughter, the next she was... here. Except where was here?



"That's classified information," said a voice behind her.

"What? Who are you?"

"I'm Hazel. Your grandmother. You met me a few times when you were young, but I was old back then."



Lexa stared around her. It was some sort of garden. She'd always imagined the afterlife to be slightly less, well, pink.

"Sorry," Hazel said. Lexa didn't think she'd said that out loud. "It's an odd quirk of where we are, that we can set our own environments. I like it leafy. Ben, your dad, disagrees. Whenever he calls a meeting it's in some stuffy library."

"What?"



"Sorry," Hazel repeated.

"What is this place? Setting our own environments? Classified information? Flowers?"



"Beautiful, aren't they?" said Hazel, which Lexa felt was avoiding the point.

"Carry on..."

"Yes. Sorry. We're in a strange place, as you might have gathered. I think I'd better start at the beginning. And back at the base. It's safer there."

"Safer? I don't fear danger!"

"You'll want to fear this. Trust me."



Hazel led her towards a road, which Lexa was sure hadn't been there before. For the first time in her life, she was a little bit scared.

Haha, I've got a plan for an environment for each of the heirs, although which ones I'll use I don't know yet. So far we've seen Ben's and Hazel's.

*steals popcorn*

Some more CrumpleSteels are up on the swap shop.

Lexa
Anais
Kelsey
Tober

There's also Hazel and Harry who I put up a while ago.

I'm the other way around, I can't stand my full name and only ever use a shortened version, including at work. I miss Lexa, but I'm glad she died in the house with her daughter and grandkids.

Yay Anais! I think I might make her into a fairy when I install Supernatural. She seems like a fairy sort.

I'll warn you, I'm dragging out exactly what's going on until the end in four generations time, but you might be able to guess at least some of it by then!

On another note, at least part of it is happening on the moon... :P

She will. She's not one to miss out!

I'm somewhat afraid of what Lexa's environment will be.  :P

So am I.

Ooh, yay, more popcorn! *steals*

What's worse than not knowing when it all wraps up, is knowing exactly when it all wraps up and realizing it takes forever to get there.  >:(

And Baby Makes Eight

Firstly, a couple of random house shots.



I didn't do much redecoration downstairs in the house as I quite liked most of it, but I re-did the bedrooms. I really like how Tober and Kris' turned out. It's not my normal style but I think it's quite cool.



I also did their en-suite in a similar style.

Tober: I hate this toilet.

The boys have a nursery in blue and grey, but it's not very exciting so I don't have pictures.



Erik: I hate this toilet too.

Oh shut it, the both of you.

Erik: You brought me into this house just to clean and tidy and fix and look after the kids, didn't you?

No! How dare you accuse me of such a thing?

Erik: You have form. I read about Hector.

Aww, I miss Hector.

(Author's Note: For new readers, Hector was the brother of generation two's spouse. I really need to do a family tree.)



Tober: Eurgh. I think I ate something dodgy. I miss being in a house with a natural cook.

I'm not sure it's that.

Toebr: Erik! Stop fixing the toilet so I can be sick into it!



In less disgusting news, meet Gabrielle, Daniel's future wife. No, the baby. The adult is Cathleen, Erik's romantic interest.



Yes, the baby is Erik's. When the popup came up saying she'd been born I was just as shocked as anyone else. She must have been concieved literally just before I brought him into the house. Still, it's convenient. She's about five days behind Daniel and Kieran in age.



Tober: Yay! Well done Danny!



Daniel: I'm not saying anything else until you stop calling me Danny.

Tober: Oh. Why are children so awkward?

Daniel: Why are mothers so awkward?



Tober: Come on, get on the potty.

Daniel: No!

Tober: No, really, get on the potty.

Daniel: I want to read my book!



Oh, that's where you're hiding.

Kris: Shh. The Llamas have the ball!



Tober: Ooh. I have a sudden craving for watermelon and autumn salad and icecream at the park.

Together?

Tober: What's wrong with it together?!?

Pregnancy hormones again. Everyone hide!



Kris: Mummy says I have to teach you to walk.

Daniel: Why?

Kris: Because...

Daniel: I know why. She's grumpy.

Kris: Shh. If your mother hears that she'll blame me.

Daniel: But she is grumpy!

Tober: KRIS! What have you been telling him?!

Kris: Told you.



Kieran is a much easier audience. Or maybe it's the change in tactics.

Tober: And little boys have to learn to potty else the watcher will install Supernatural and the witches and werewolves will come and get them!

Kieran: Oh no!



Tober: Watcher...

Nope. You're in labour. I'm staying well away after last time.

Tober: Kris...

Kris: Me too.

Amelia: And me.



Meet Sophie. She's clumsy and easily impressed.



And her twin sister Caitlyn. She's athletic and a slob. I randomly rolled for both girls traits. The house is now full.



Kris: She's so adorable. *to Sophie* Never ever think you're getting a boyfriend. Ever. Or you, Caity.



Erik: For the last time, stop checking the taps! They really will break if you keep checking them like that!

Amelia: But what if...

Erik: No!

Next time: Three birthdays, and Sophie goes to the movies.

You have the baby swing then I assume?  I've done four without the baby swing, but I'm surprised you're doing it in a dynasty!

Haha, I just went and commented in your dynasty about how much I liked that pattern! It suits both of their names: Raven is a gothy name and Halloween is in October!

Four Nooboos.  :o

I do have the swing but I'm not actually using it. Suicidal, maybe! I have three adults who stay at home all day (Erik, Amelia and Tober) so it's not as bad as it could be. Nobody's mood was very high for a while, though. The decadynasty is a lot easier than the immortal dynasty in the baby stages, because I don't have to worry about anyone's requirements. So I decided to have four kids for something to do!

He actually looks awesome as a teen with the genes. I love the idea of Harry as a fairy... hmm. I'm installing Supernatural when I've got this gen complete (Daniel is 4 days off YA in my game) I think. I might have to take pictures of all the heirs as supernatural beings for this thread.

I loved the interlude. Very interesting...

Thanks! It's interesting for me watching everyone's reactions!

I know it's a second chapter in a day, but I'm going to stick another one up. I have more screenshots than I know what to do with.

That is, if my cat lets me type...

Aging On Up

This one's mostly a filler chapter, because there's a lot of birthdays at the moment and I didn't want to put five birthdays in one chapter.



The first thing we have to do in this chapter is age the boys up. I keep wanting to call them the twins, but they're not the only set of twins in the house anymore!

Daniel: Shut up, and get on with my birthday!

Tober: You've just taken a picture of me looking like a goldfish, haven't you?

Yes. Yes I have.



We cut to the sparkles.



Daniel as a kid. He picked out the clothes all by himself.

Daniel: Don't be patronising.

He gained the bookworm trait.



Kieran then went to the cake.

Tober: Thanks, that's a much more flattering photo of me.



Yay for cross-eyed aging up faces!



Kieran became Brave. Mostly because I random-rolled for his trait. I'm sure I took a makeover shot of him, but I can't find it, so you'll have to make do with this one.

Kieran: Please. No. This hairstyle! It can't go on the internet!



Kris: Are you sure you want to do this? You don't start school until tomorrow.

Daniel: Mummy told me about the requirements and that I need to get on the honour roll. I'm not going to let her down.

Kris: You could always just work hard in school.

Daniel: Every other kid will be working hard in school!



Kris: Fine. Okay then. The answer is... umm...

Daniel: You don't know what the answer is, do you Daddy?

Kris: Yes I do, it's...

Daniel: You don't.



Kris: Ahh! What's happening! I know the answer, honest!



Kris: Maths has made me go grey.

Beware of Maths, forum lads and lasses. It can cause horrible side effects, like old age.



Daniel: *grumbles* I'm going to have to learn all this by myself. What's the use of parents when they can't even teach you basic calculus. Even Sophie and Caitlyn would know how to integrate I bet.



Meanwhile, Kieran is normal.

Kieran: I'm building a fort!

See.



Ummm, Amelia, what's Sophie doing outside the theatre.

Amelia: We went to see a film.

She's a baby. She can't appreciate film.

Amelia: She so can. She has the 'saw a great film' moodlet.

So she does.



Amelia: But she didn't want any popcorn.



Where are you taking her now, The Grind?!

Amelia: Don't be silly. Babies don't go dancing.

Babies didn't used to go and see films.



Tober: Don't be jealous Caitlyn. Just because Sophie went to see a film with Auntie Amelia doesn't mean Mummy loves you any less!



Erik takes the opportunity to escape the madhouse and go see his daughter.

Erik: Here comes the monster!

Gabrielle: But Mummy told me Supernatural wasn't installed!



Kieran: D'you think we could nick his hat?

Daniel: Shh! I don't want to get in trouble on the first day!

Kieran: Alright, we'll nick it tomorrow then.



I think this is the creepiest paparazzi ever. She looks like a little lost old lady who's wandered into your house in her nightie to borrow some sugar.



And then she starts taking notes.

Next time: Toddler montage.
