Yes, if Daleks can climb stairs, why not sharks?

Daniel reads so much, he reminds me of Ben.

Iris, stop complaining. The watcher always gets their way. And outdoors is actually okay, even if there are no computers outside, it can be ok.

Indeed, the watcher always does get her way :) She's still not convinced by outdoors though. Something about access to open water...

Yes, if Daleks can climb stairs, why not sharks?

Daniel reads so much, he reminds me of Ben.

The episode they revealed Daleks could climb stairs was terrifying. Though still the scariest Doctor Who baddie is the angels. There's a little stone angel on a flat by my work, I couldn't walk past it for ages after those episodes.

He's not quite as book manic as Ben, but then that's probably only because there's so many children vying for his attention all the time. Ben was sensible and only had three. Only.

Yeah, that was so scary, because they thought they were safe and then...yeah, I watched Blink for the first time at night by myself. Bad move.

Just like the daleks, sharks can do things you'd never expect. You keep an eye on them Iris!

Yes. I was caught up by the much more blatant Doctor Who reference. Good catch.

I could never watch that episode by myself!

Oh, great. You're encouraging her now :P

Am I the only one who spotted the Harry Potter reference? 'Always the tone of surprise' ;D

Haha, yes, it was a fairly well hidden reference! I've just finished rereading all the books, and I love that line. My favourite line is "just because you have the emotional intelligence of a teaspoon, Ron!" though.

Learning



Iris doesn't want to go to high school.



Ethel: I want her glasses.

Iris: You can't steal her glasses. She'd crash the bus and then the sharks would be able to find us.

Ethel: You're mental. But you might have a point about the bus crashing.



After school Iris went to try and get more photos around town. I'm really worried about her not getting many of the challenges sorted. Most of the time strangers register in the stats part of the skill journal but fail to register under the Paparazzi challenge.

Anyway, the point of this picture was that I have never seen a sim so excited about eating a raw potato before. Eww.

Iris: YUM.



And she still doesn't want to go to school the next day either. I'm amazed she went the first day in her everyday wear though.

Iris: Today it's an athletic day. I might need to run away from Ethel.



Albert's birthday.

Daniel: Why can't they just all have grown up already?!

When Iris was born you wanted them to stay small forever.

Daniel: Yes, and then I had more.

Gabrielle: And a few more after that, too.



Ethel, babe, Albert's over here.

Ethel: I knew that.



Josephine is next on the birthday train. I'm actually slightly regretting having this many nooboos now.

Josephine: Do you not love me..?

Of course I... hang on. You're a burrito. You can't talk yet. Stop it.

Josephine: NO.

Daniel: The nooboos have driven you mad as well, then.



Josephine: Can I talk yet?

No.

Josephine: Now?

Someone...please...help.



Margaret ages up on the floor before we can get her to a cake. And Daniel then walks in front of the camera.

Daniel: No more burritos! I might have a party to celebrate.

There's still toddler training.

Daniel: Maybe I'll hold off on the party.



Aged up Josie. I'm glad we're in the last round of toddlers for this gen. I'm running out of inspiration for toddler outfits if nothing else.



Aged up Peggy. With a slight case of Sekemoto Face Syndrome.



This is your first glimpse of aged-up Albert as well.

Ethel: You'll let me nick her glasses, won't you? You're not scared of bus crashes!

Albert: Ethel, I...

Bus Driver: I can hear everything you're saying. And if you dare try to nick my glasses, I'll set the bus monster on you.

Ethel: I'm not scared of the bus monster! Umm... does it have sharp teeth?

Bus Driver: Very sharp teeth.

Ethel: I don't think I want your glasses anymore.



And the last lot of toddler training for this generation has started. I'm only having one or two kids next gen.



Iris is looking for a new supermax skill. She tries out mixology.

Iris: So that's two parts gin, and one part lemon juice...



Iris: Oops. No lemon juice, then.



I'm really not sure mixology is her thing.



The book Daniel's writing is the same one he started just before Iris was born.

Daniel: Because I never get a moment's peace.

Gabrielle: Daniel! Peggy needs teaching to talk, do you have a minute?

Daniel: See?



Daniel: Night is what happens after day. Say night.

Peggy: ...

Daniel: Night. Can you say night?

Peggy: ...

Josephine: I can say night!

Daniel: Please can they grow up now?

Next time: more birthdays, more toddler skills, and Mary gets fed up of being left out of updates.

Well, quite. The things insane sims do are awesome.

Good luck with the new supermax.

Mixology's not her new supermax anymore. I messed up slightly in that it was my back-up skill, but I didn't put enough clubs into Lunar Lakes at the  start and so I can't actually complete it. Which is a pain. So she'll be changing for the third time soon, to a skill I intended to use for the next gen, because my other backup skill (fishing) she won't really be able to do with the Hates the Outdoors trait. It's just a bit annoying!

That was a lot of nooboos lol. Poor Daniel and the watcher need a brake. :P They are all adorable.

They really do. I kinda hope a Free Vacation opportunity comes up for them so that they can have one. I'm really not having this many nooboos again!

Lets hope this superman goes better. SFS is still in the family?!

Oh yes. Those genes stick around! I wonder how many more generations I can keep them for?

Sorry for all the delays in posting chapters lately. I'll try and be more organised and get this thread up-to-date for my game soon. Especially as the first birthday of the dynasty is coming up!

Not The Exciting Part



It's time for another one of those chapters where not masses happens.

Iris: Alright, little bro?

Albert: I like you, you pay attention to me.

Parental attention is lacking when you're the fourth of six kids, I think.

Mary: And when you're the second.



Iris: I wonder if Chris has ever noticed me...

Albert: Let's play tig!

Iris: He's the only boy for me, I know he is...

Albert: IRIS!



Iris: Eurgh. Can't we stop? I want to go inside.

Albert: But I'm having fun. Don't you like me anymore?

Iris: Of course I do, I can see right through your guilt trip too.

Albert: MUMMY!

Gabrielle: I don't have time for this, sort out your own fights.

Yes, and we spent all of last generation calling for people's mums.



Ethel: You're the only one who understands me, Bobo. When we grow up we'll show them!



Mary: Cosmo went to the market and he bought some vegetables and the he came back and cooked dinner for his girlfriend and he and his girlfriend got married and had a baby and lived happily ever after.

The twins are... different.



As proved again here.

Ethel: You smell.

Mary: So do you.

Ethel: No I mean literally, you smell of burning.

Mary: Not my fault somebody had replaced my sherbet with Chemical X in my potions kit. I've been banned from using it so I've got to read about the theory of logic now! Not fair.

Ethel: Or you could play videogames like a normal child. Also, it totally wasn't me with the Chemical X.

Mary: I wonder who it was then?

Oh to be young and naive.



Albert: The puddle, it's still growing!

Iris: It's still broken.

Albert: Can you fix it for me? Pwease?

Iris: Can't learn handiness, sorry. *quietly* Sometimes I love DecaDynasty rules.

Albert: Izzy, wizzy, lets get busy... no, that didn't work either. Reparo! No...



And where are you going at midnight, missy?

Mary: Down the hall.

That's not the answer I was looking for.

Mary: Well, it's true. At least in part.



Albert: You're going to be in trouble! You're naughty!

Mary: And I'll be a teenager and you'll be a child. Sucks to be you.

Albert: I'm going to tell on you.



Mary: You're too late, so neh neh neh neh neh.

Iris: The sharks are attacking, save her! Save us all! Call the police, call the coastguard! Call Great-Aunt Kelsey!



Daniel: Yay! Woo! Another one nearly grown up!

Mary: Bunches.

Gabrielle: *coughs*

Daniel: Oh, yes. What do you think you're doing out of bed at this time, young lady?



One outfit change later, Mary looks a lot more like Mary.



Ethel ages up in the evening of their birthday (Mary did straight after midnight, but Ethel had the wish to get on the honour roll and so went to her last day of school).

Ethel: I wish to never be outdone by my sisters.



Failed already then. I think Mary outdid you in 'worst aging up hairstyle'. Yours isn't bad.

Ethel: I'm wearing shorts. This is not proper!



A new hairdo and a new outfit (next update!) makes her more like Ethel again.



Some toddler cuteness, to finish off a rare episode where nearly everyone features.

Daniel: Come on Peggy, you can do this.

Peggy: ...

Daniel: Just a few steps.

Peggy: ...

Josie: I can walk!



Daniel: You could be a doctor. Doctors are know it alls. Except you need really awful handwriting for being a doctor.

Josie: Want a stethoscope.

Daniel: What for? Actually, don't tell me. Just grow up already. And move out.

Next time: Driving lessons, stuff that used to belong to the Science Centre and a family trip out.

As far as Mixology goes, you should know (in case you ever want to attempt it) that pubs and clubs (I like the ring of that!) are not necessary. All you need is a professional bar in the right kind of lot. Check out the discussion on the Immortal Dynasty Hints and Tips board to learn more.

You're welcome! That's why I took the time, because my Immortal Dynasty is in Twinbrook and there is less than no space to add bars. Also, the Bridgeport bars just don't fit aesthetically in most towns. When I realised that if I want to know, other people probably do too, so I did all the information and posted it. Share the word! Hahaha

Yeah, I hate the look of the Bridgeport bars in some of the towns. I tried putting them into Sunlit Tides once and it just looks bizarre.

I love Ethel too. She's given me a chance to use clothes I never thought I would use, for one thing! I don't have a favourite this generation, there's slightly too many of them for that. I really am going to have less next time!

I've done a family tree for the CrumpleSteels. It's missing a few people, mostly children of siblings of heirs that I need to trawl through and find names of. Also it's missing Verity and Rosa, because I can't work out how to add people who aren't related onto it. I might have to add Verity as Tober's sister, even though technically she isn't as an IF.

The Good, The Bad and The Crazy (Round 2)

The three teens at the moment remind me slightly of Lexa, Anais and Kelsey.



Mary takes some driving lessons from her mum.

Mary: So I go into third here?

Gabrielle: Exactly. You're less scary to drive with than your dad and he's passed his test.



She then goes home and reads a bedtime story to her little brother. She's a good kid.

Iris: She's doing it in my bed though! Where will I sleep that's guaranteed shark free now?! We're all going to DIE! DIE! Mary's in league with the sharks!

Yes, quite.

Mary: And then they all lived happily ever after.

Until their watcher sent them to the Sim Bin for being impossible.



Ethel is... actually, the look on her face tells me I don't want to know what Ethel is doing.

Ethel: You don't, run along.

Run along? I'm omnipresent! How dare you tell me to run along?



Actually, is omnipresent the right word? I can never remember. I'm going to have to Google that, hang on.

*Googles*

Actually, I've decided I'm omnipotent. All-ruling. I like that. I can make you do anything I want, Ethel, don't you forget that!



Hey, wait! Where did the bollard go?

Ethel: For all your omnipresence or omnipotence or omniscience, you're not very good at stopping me from stealing things.

Looking after eight sims stretches even me to my limits. What I really want to know though is how you got that in your pocket?

Ethel: Better get working on that omniscience.



Mary: So how did you get the bollard in your pocket?

Ethel: I didn't. I brought a really large bag with me.

Mary: And the watcher didn't notice?

Ethel: She was on Goggle. Whatever Goggle is.

Mary: Watcher information source.



We can't have an update without a birthday. Gabrielle looks so excited about becoming old. I don't have the heart to ruin it for her.

Gabrielle: Actually, I'm really not. I'm somehow being forced to pull this stupid face.

Fair enough. I blame Ethel.

Ethel: OI!



Reason to age up in work clothes 34: No dodgy outfits or hairstyles.



Iris: Mum, come and have a celebratory drink!

Gabrielle: Umm, should I? We saw your last attempts.

Iris: I've been practicing, it's all fine, trust me. The experimental anti-shark juice has got a new, improved, less experimental recipe. Though how something can be both new and improved, I don't know.



Gabrielle: Ahhhhhh!

Yeah, no more mixology for Iris.



Mary: Don't mind me.

I'm just getting you in the update again, to make up for all the times I forgot you.

Mary: I think I actually kinda preferred not being in them. I've just got to the exciting bit in my book.

Like father (and great-great grandfather), like daughter.



Gabrielle gets a new haircut. I won't show you her outfits, elder outfits are uninspiring.



The CrumpleSteels try a family day out to the pool.

Ethel: Eurgh. Do I have to be here?

Mary: I hate her, I don't want to be here if she is! Can't she go home?

Gabrielle: I might leave you here and go home myself.



Ethel: Actually, this isn't so bad.

Albert: Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...



Iris, love, you're meant to go into the water.

Iris: I'm getting the sharks out first.

Fine, okay, whatever.



Iris: Oh my lord. This is horrible. This is torture. People do this for fun?!



I really don't think you should drink that.

Ethel: I don't care what you think, I can drink whatever I want! Stop trying to control me! *sips* Actually, I don't think I should drink this either. It's rank!

Told you so.

Ethel: Maybe you are omniscient.
