Suspence! You are an extremly talented writer. I love how cynical and sassy your sims are. Great job and I am excited to find out what happens next!

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.

Either's fine, Gogo. Yeah, the gnome costume doesn't really help anyone take him seriously. I wonder how many dynasty founders would still want him if they saw him in this...

I love your interludes -- I hate losing my decadynasty characters, too!

Thanks Marian! It really is the worst bit of the decadynasty.

What kind of characters do you need? PM me if you don't want to reveal!

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

Pretty much any type of Sim would work. I can't reveal too much, but they'll all be in a scene together and they can all have different reasons for being there depending on the type of sim.

The next interlude will be a little while coming yet, they tend to come after a important event in the main storyline. I think there'll be a Interlude 6 part 1 after the wedding of generation 7, which will give a little bit more background as to why I need sims, and then the main one they'll feature in will be after generation 7 dies. So you've got time!

There might be two updates tonight if my internet cooperates with me. I'm quite far ahead in my game and I want to get a bit more caught up.

Okay, thanks for the clarification. I'll see if I have a Sim that I can send.  :D

Faceplants, Births, and NPCs



Before we get on with the chapter, here's Cait as a young adult. I can't find the picture I'm sure I took of Sophie.



The girls graduated. Kieran had to be entrusted with taking them as Daniel was too busy writing "the greatest book of the modern age - no - the greatest book known to man!" to come along.

Kieran: It's a load of drivel, and anyway, he was playing Tetris last I saw of him.

Caitlyn: And when I was looking for my Humans 3 disk he had that.



It's a shame Tober couldn't be there to see them graduate, though.



Kieran: Hey there little one. How're things, warm enough? Ready to come meet Daddy yet?

Laurel: He can't hear you.

Kieran: What? The doctors told you he was deaf? My little boy is going to be deaf? We'll have to get learning sign language quickly, do they come out knowing it if they're deaf, what if I can't learn it in time...

Laurel: No, he's not deaf, he's just not born yet.

Kieran: I knew that. I was just messing. Of course I knew that. EVERYONE knows that.



Laurel: Oh! The baby's coming!



Daniel: Help! Help! Somebody, anybody! There's a baby coming! Are you okay?

Laurel: I'm fine, can you...



Daniel: The baby! Oh my word the baby's coming NOW! Help! Help! Help!



Laurel: Really, you'd think he was the one pushing it out.



Daniel: KIERAN! KIERAN! THE BABY!

Laurel: Please don't call him, he'll be even more useless than you. I wish Tober was here.



Laurel moves to a different room. I think that's a wise idea. But where is Kieran, anyway? Well, look down the bottom of the screen and you'll see him being incredibly helpful to his wife in labour.

Laurel: Sarcasm aside, I think that might actually be the most helpful thing for him to do?

Slide on a waterslide?

Laurel: Stay well out the way.



Daniel: I'm going to stay well out the way too. My masterpiece is in progress.

You've only written the title.

Daniel: In progress implies not finished.

I think you'd struggled to call it started.



Kieran: Ow.

No sympathy. Your wife's having a baby.

Kieran: So am I!

Erm, not in quite the same way she is. I don't think you are, anyway.

Kieran: You mean it's not mine?!?



In less mad news: Cait has joined the military.



It involves being very fit, which of course Cait loves.



Sophie is working on befriending NPCs, which strikes me as an easier job. She gets to watch private concerts instead of doing workouts.



And although in most normal circles it's frowned upon to beat up your maid with a pillow, in the sims it's a) totally fine, b) a way to make friends with them, and c) still easier than doing workouts.

Cait: Actually I'd take my job anyday. That maid looks like she had a good left hook.



We also briefly had a simbot called Trudy, but as per DecaDynasty rules she was released into the wild (Lunar Lakes society) straight after Sophie got her from her LTR points.



Laurel: Err, forgotten someone?

Oops. Yeah. Everyone meet James.



Kieran, Laurel and James move out, as I need to concentrate on Daniel's requirements for the last few days of his Young Adulthood.

I am going to miss Kieran something terrible too! He is so charming and totally clueless at times, but always there with a witty answer. James seems a healthy and bouncing baby boy. So happy about that!
Now then, Daniel... It looks like you'll command all the attention from now on. Can't wait to see what your Watcher has in store for you! :)

I'm going to have to watch that now just to see!

Kieran'll be back. He glitched out for a while after he moved out and didn't appear in anyones relationship panel, but the weirdly came back. It was all really strange.

The Seventh Move



Daniel's collection is photographs taken by Sophie. This IF one is incredibly creepy.



But, on with the show.

It's that time where the proposal has to take place.

Gabrielle: Why are you on the floor, babe?

Daniel: Umm, hang on...



Daniel: Will you marry me?

Gabrielle: That's a stupid question, oh wow!

Daniel: Does that mean yes or no?

Gabrielle: Yes, you idiot!



Daniel: The moment is slighty ruined by the paparazzi.



They go somewhere slightly out of the line of vision for a celebratory kiss.



Daniel has nearly completed all of his requirements, he just needs his adult birthday.

Daniel and Gabrielle: *sloppy noises*

Yeah, I think I'll leave you to it.



Until it's time for the BIRTHDAY! PARTY! WOO!

Daniel: Just because I'm aging into an adult does not mean I can't be embarassed by my stupid, uncool watcher.

I know. That's why I'm doing it. Daniel! Daniel! Daniel!

Gabrielle: Booring! Hurry up and age up!



Daniel: She's going to hit me over the head with that noisemaker, I know it.



Daniel: Oh. She didn't. That's good.

Caitlyn: And pose. I might get picked up by a model scout, and be out of this madhouse.



Daniel: I'll glare at you until you stop taking photographs of my wrinkles.

What wrinkles?

Daniel: Don't even...



Most people after aging up opt for a slice of birthday cake. Daniel instead goes for his brother's wedding cake, which is somehow still in the fridge.



But now, it's time for the most important event of a decadynasty heir's life. Their wedding and house-move.

Daniel: Oh Gabby. We should get married now, because I've completed all my requirements.

Gabrielle: Romantic.



And so they do. In a private ceremony in the stairwell of Gabby's home.

Thanks everyone!

Generation Eight is a teen in-game, I really need to update more. I'm in the middle of a house move though and I don't have any internet at home at the moment (I'm on the forum at my office right now...), I've just got a new computer so I'll be reinstalling the Sims, and work's gone a bit mental so that's why I haven't been around much, sorry!

Hopefully I'll have an update in the next couple of days (tomorrow if you're lucky!).

And yeah, Marian, I'm fairly sure that hair is compulsory for at least half the sims in town.

A New Life



I thought it was time we had a close-up of Gabrielle, generation 7 spouse. I spruced up her hair colour too, no sim of mine will have to suffer that greeny-brown colour!



She got a new wardrobe too, in spice brown which is her favourite colour. Here's her everyday dress, which you'll very rarely see her in for reasons that'll become clear in later chapters.



She also got a new formal outfit. And sleepwear, swimwear and athletic but they're nowhere near as exciting because I just wanted to get on and make nooboos at this point.

Gabrielle: Don't worry, I know where your priorities lie.



All this was after a little bit of treadmill action. I wanted to see what she'd look like as skinny as Daniel is.



Anyway, enough with the Watcher rambling. You can tell I've been away from the forum for a while, I've almost forgotten how to update. I'm sure this is the screenie you've all been waiting for, to show that the next heir is on his or her little way.

Daniel: Get. Out. My. Bedroom.

Fiiiinnnee. Just showing your fans what's happened.

Daniel: I preferred it when you were off moving house. Don't you have a kitchen to paint?

Bored of that. I'd rather bother you.

Daniel: Oh joy.



What's that?

Daniel: Car.

I can see that.

Daniel: Well why did you ask then?

What I wanted to know was why it was in our garden.

Daniel: MY GARDEN. And if you wanted to know that, you should have asked it.

Well I am now.

Gabrielle: He's bought the car because he's having a mid-life crisis. And play nicely both of you or I'll press the mute button.

You wouldn't!

Gabrielle: Try me.



Daniel: Should I change my job?



Magic8 Ball: Please try again later.

Daniel: What kind of an answer is that? *shakes again* Piece of rubbish.

Magic8 Ball: Please try again later.

Daniel: You're less use than my watcher.



I heard that.

Magic8 Ball: Please try again later. Please try again later. Please try again later. Please...

Daniel: Oh. Runs on Windows Vista. That explains it.

Magic8 Ball: ..try again later.

Try turning it off and on again.



Gabrielle: Eurgh.



Needs no explanation. Which is good, because after seven previous generations of morning sickness shots I've run of out jokes about it. I might have to resort to puns.

Gabrielle: Please never resort to puns.



Daniel is still having a mid-life crisis.



Gabrielle's pregnancy confirms.



What is THAT?

Daniel: Found it in the fridge. I'm living dangerously.

Gabrielle: Oh. Yes. Risking life and limb by eating some strange concoction that the new EP brought with it is living dangerously. You're a real man!

Daniel: Oh shut it, sarcasm isn't cool anymore.

And you are?

Daniel: Help. Brain freeze.

Gabrielle: Probably serves you right.



No mid-life crisis is complete without a new hairstyle.



Erm, should they be letting a pregnant and hormonal woman near that much heavy machinery.

Gabrielle: Despite my hormones, I think I'm more balanced emotionally than Daniel at the moment.

Daniel: HELP! HELP! I think I've found another wrinkle! What will I do?!?

You have a point there. Carry on.



Later that night, Daniel finds himself speeding off to the hospital because Gabrielle's in there giving birth to the eighth heir.

Daniel: Watcher, I'm scared.

Hi scared. I'm the watcher.

Daniel: Now isn't a time for jokes! I'm going to become a daddy and that's scary.

No, now's the time for me to go paint the windowframes in the kitchen, like you keep reminding me to.

Daniel: Don't go...
