Kieran got married first? Is that a prank he pulled? Lol... Would make sense with the vamp thing... Two (three?) pranks in one good show! Mr bookworm used to be the ladies' man... Despite doing nothing to encourage it.

Sorry for the lack of updates, everyone. I had a pretty hectic week or so with work and some internet trouble, but the CrumpleSteels will be back on your computer screens more regularly soon. I've got an update for you today too, yaaayy!

The vamps amused me, it's almost as if it takes them being shown anything twice to learn! And Wiry, you may be onto something there.

The Long Awaited Next Chapter



Daniel goes on a three-day trip to China, to complete an opportunity and to do a bit more writing. Seriously, I hate writing as a supermax.

Daniel: The sky's getting really dark all of a sudden...

... ... Noooooooo!!!!



Having never had a meteor before, I've now had two in the same file. I think they call it Murphy's Law.



Luckily Daniel's far enough away by the time it actually hits. It's always the heirs as well. First Tober, now Daniel.



Chinese Dude: Well, that's my chances of that promotion today gone, then.



Whaaat you dooooiiinnggg?

Daniel: Working.

You're so not.



You're so staring at the woman opposite you in her underwear.

Daniel: Am so not. And besides, you can't see anything, she's covered in soot.

What I want to know is how her glasses are intact.



Laurel and Kieran spend their first married morning eating their wedding cake for breakfast. Classy.



Kieran: So, you wanna go play catch?

Laurel: Or we could go upstairs.



Laurel: Did you wet yourself in the bathroom?

Kieran: No. Definitely not. You were in the way of the loo. You're hallucinating. Sleepwalking.



A new CrumpleSteel is on the way!



As one is leaving this world.



Grim: Ah, October CrumpleSteel. Are you ready then?

Tober: You're late.

Grim: I'm going to take that as a yes. It's not easy this reaping stuff. Sometimes grieving families hold you up for HOURS.

Daniel: Mum! Mum! Don't go, please!

Tober: It's time, and your dad's waiting, and I've got a lot to be getting on with. You'll all be fine. Just don't forget not to overload the dishwasher. Remember what happened last time you did that!



Sophie: Yay! Birthday!

Inappropriate times to age up, Exhibit A.



Caitlyn: Wooo!

Exhibit B.



Caitlyn: Not this hairstyle again.

Daniel: Mum just died, and you're thinking about that?



So as the Earth rises into the sky, Tober crosses to the other side. RIP Tober. We'll all miss you.

He is in my game (spoilers!) but at this point in the story he's not. He's still waiting on his Adult birthday, career and a couple more opportunities.

RIP Tober *sniff*   I absolutely loved her parting words, ever the wise and battle-worn mom.

Poor Tober had a lot to put up with with those four! I'm glad I only had to deal with them from this side of the screen.

Oh Tober, I hope you're happy on the other side.

So do I. I'm going to miss her. But she'll be with Kris, so I think she'll be fine.

Picture 3 is not showing for some reason rather. Maybe it's just my computer.
Oh dear, massive meteor! I hope Daniel picked it up. He's so much into writing, one must be forgiven for wondering if he did.
Laurel and Kieran are off on a great start in married life, I see. (That boy is going to be the end of me, I swear. I am going to die laughing one day soon.)

Yes, Tober! Brave and beautiful woman... Go find your man and tell us about the mystery... please?

For Watcher only: That last picture is absolutely magnificent!
Great update!  :)

Ooh, I'll go fix picture 3. Thanks!

He did indeed pick it up. Even if he was so distracted by the woman writing. There's another installment or two of mystery coming right up, you'll be pleased to know. And more frequent updates.

Aww, Rip October, but Yay a new nooboo on the way.

Aww RIP Tober.

I miss her already :(

Interlude 5, Part 1



Tober, like others before her, arrived somewhere she'd never been before. What was the strange stuff on the ground? It rang a bell somewhere in her head, a memory of some kind.

Grass?

Grass. That's why the floor was green, it was covered in grass!

"Congratulations, kiddo."

"What?" Tober span round.



"Hehehe. I love being able to mind-read."

"Lexa, behave."

"That's no fun if I have to behave, is it? You've already spoilt this for me by deciding on the environment and coming along to enforce the stupid flowers and whats-it-calleds and..."



"Gazebos, Lexa. That's what they're called. And I think Tober may appreciate the fact I'm here if she ever gets the joy of seeing what kinds of environments you like to create for meetings."

"I hate gazebos."

Tober had stayed silent throughout this. The more surreal the situation got, the harder she found it to intervene. The bickering was worse than at home, she thought.

"And that's quite an achievement with four kids," Hazel said. "Lexa, be a darling and explain to Tober what's going on."



"Lexa? Mum? Is it really you?"

"More's the pity, yes, it's me."

"Where is this place? How did I get here? Who's she?" Tober pointed to Hazel, who could be seen in the corner of the garden staring intently at a small screen. "And you can mind read?"

"One question at a time would be enough, surely?"

"You try having one question at a time in my situation."

"I was in your situation not all that long ago. To start with the easy one, you got here by dying. It's the afterlife, so that's why I'm here and your Grandma Hazel's here," Lexa pointed to Hazel, now looking at the screen in shock, "and lots of your other relatives too. And Kris, who we're not quite sure how he got here."

"Kris! When can I see him?!"

"Soon. There's a bit more to explain first. Oh, and to answer your last question, we'll teach you to mind read. It's well easy when you get the hang of it, I don't know why I didn't figure it out ages ago."



"So the afterlife is some kind of island?"

"Lexa." Hazel had put the screen away and with a look of concern on her face was approaching the two of them. "You're going to have to get a move on. There's been an issue up at base."

"Base?"



"Eurgh. If I thought being Empress of Evil was bad for being called into work at ridiculous hours, this is worse. And you'd think the afterlife was relaxing. Oh no. No rest for the wicked."

"And that phrasing is apt for you, so get a move on."

"Yes sir."



"So you're my grandma?"

"Great-grandma technically, but we lose the greats round here. There's seven generations of us up here now you're around, too time-consuming." Hazel paused. "Talking of time. In a second I'm going to set you a teleport. Here's your security pass. I'm afraid we've had to move the grand meeting forwards a few days, so there won't be much of time to show you around because we'll all be busy. You'll find your grandad Sam and grandma Abbie in the control centre, just buzz for them on this pager when you get to base. I suggest asking any serious questions to Abbie, though."

"Teleport? Control centre? Pager?"

"Sorry, no time to explain now. See you at the grand meeting."

So glad you are updating!
The grand meeting piques my curiosity. I also hope that Tober finds her beloved Kris soon. If the ancestors aren't quite sure how he got there, he must have done something quite extra-ordinary.
This is wonderful.  :D

Why thank you!

That was brilliant. I love the afterlife. Lexa! 'I don't know why I didn't figure it out years ago!' Hahaha

I love writing the afterlife chapters, I get to bring back all the characters and have them together. My favourites dying off is the worst thing about a DecaDynasty.

So glad you are updating!

I should be back on a more regular basis at least for the next few weeks. I'm in the middle of moving house though so I may still go AWOL occasionally. And we'll be finding out about the meeting soon enough :)

Interlude 5, Part 2



"Chris, right, the next thing we have on the schedule is... WHAT IS THAT?" Agnes hadn't been expecting a lime green gnome to have replaced Chris. She'd barely been away from the control room for five minutes. It was like the time with the dinosaur all over again, except possibly even less helpful.

"What's what?"

"That outfit."



"It's new, it's lovely isn't it. Came with the new expansion pack so it's right up to date."

"Out of date, more like." Agnes sighed. They didn't have time for this.

"That's not fair."

"It totally is."

"Agnes, seriously? You're wearing black again, you just don't understand my fashion genius. And you never will."

It was all she could do to not laugh at his pout.



"You just keep telling yourself that. As I was saying..."

"That's it! I'm going to go and sulk until you're nicer to me!"

"I don't think you're suppose to admit you're sulking."

"SHUT UP, I'M NOT TALKING TO YOU!"



Agnes was saved from having to answer by her phone buzzing.

"Yes... wait. What? No! I'll be there as soon as I can get Chris out of his gnome, erm... as soon as I can."

An Announcement

Interlude 6 is going to need more sims than just my characters. I could make them all myself, or I could use some of the forum's! If anyone's got a sim from teen upwards they don't mind appearing in my story, link me to them on the swap shop and they'll be in the next Interlude. I'll give full credit to the makers of any sim I use.

Would you like the link in a PM or just a post?

Chris looks hilarious in the gnome costume. I can see why Agnes wants his out of it.

I was curious about this, too. I probably have a Sim you could use, but I'm not sure what type you would want. Unless of course you've already taken the screenshots, in which case we'll see the update soon!  ;D
