At first I have to tell that I really really love your story!
There are so many interesting characters and I like it that each generation is special in their own way.

I vote for Riverview, too.
I'm currently playing there and it is wonderful: No slow downs and the townies are very lovely.

I'm casting my vote for Twinbrook. That would pull in some fun genetics. :)

Ethel remains my absolute favourite! You cast that girl so well!
As for the move... I do not know what is most practical, but I haven't seen much of Hidden Springs in stories.
I shall, of course, follow this family with much interest wherever they move to.  ;D

...I've had Dynasties in both Riverview and Twinbrook...both are fun places to play. But Riverview doesn't have a lot of people after a while (I mean, I'm only on second generation and there's no original townie kids really), so I'd go with Twinbrook.

I vote for Riverview! All the townies are quite good-looking, there's nice scenery, and it never lags much in my personal experience.

Firstly, I'm going to apologise for basically disappearing on this story and my other ones. RL and my health issues got in the way of simming, but I'm hopefully back now even if updating won't be quite as often as it's been in the past. Sorry everyone!

In happier news, Iris has moved towns and generation 9 is on it's way in my game. I know where she's moved to but I'm not going to reveal it just yet (because I'm really mean).

And also I'm about to get an update together for you all.

Happy Families



We've been getting the notification that Kieran will die soon every day for about the last two sim weeks now. So he spends a lot of time hanging round the lot with Daniel. It gives them both something to do now Daniel's not got any more nappies to change.

Daniel: He smells worse than the smelliest toddler though.

You're elders, not children.

Kieran: So? You smell worse than five of the smelliest toddlers.



Definitely no toddlers around here anymore, as the youngest two CrumpleSteels of the current batch age up to teen.

Josie: I wish to have no sisters and to become a scientist.

Albert: Told you I was her favourite.

Josie: No I just forgot you. Can I amend my wish, Watcher?

If you want, seeing as the dynasty rules say I can't shift delete your sisters anyway I can't do it to Albert either.



Josie: I want to change my wish then. I want to become a scientist, and a Bwan Speedster, and...



Too late.

Josie: I hate you.

Said like a true teenager.



Here she is as a teen. She's got Gabrielle's mouth and eye size but other than that she's got the generic townie features.



And before we all forget Peggy, let's go watch her age up.

Peggy: I wish for a cooler name than Peggy, and less dorky hair.



Oh! You scared me!

Mary: I hate everyone and everything, but mostly Ethel and hair dye.

At least it's coming out now.

Mary: Too slowly. I'm going to kill her. Or get her back. Or get her back and then kill her.

This is a family friendly forum, Mary.

Mary: I'll do it off screen then.



Peggy's... looking grown up.

Peggy: I'm not Peggy anymore, I'm Ret. Ret is a cool name, Peggy's for losers and old ladies.

Ret sounds like a dog, or a cough sweet or something.

Josie: HEY! How come you granted her wishes? That's not fair!

Ret: How come you got more pictures so far in this update than I did? That's not fair either!

I'm leaving you to this one.

Josie: Come back and give me my Bwan Speedster!



Ret: Everyone in this family is mad.

Ethel: Yep.

Ret: When you become a Young Adult, can you move out and take me with you?

Ethel: No. I'm not dealing with any stupid teens.



Ret: You just hate other people because you hate Mary. I don't like Mary either, she's boring and stupid.

Mary: Excuse me! I'm behind you, I can hear you! And I have the GENIUS TRAIT!

Ethel: Can you hear anything?

Ret: Some weird squeaking noise.

Ethel: Oh, and by the way, I still hate you from that time at the park. Just slightly less than I hate Mary.



Josie: I'm staying out of this.

Good idea.



Mary tries to get Ethel back for the dye trick. Unfortunately she didn't manage to get the permanent stuff. I think the grocery store may have blacklisted the CrumpleSteel teens.



Daniel is 90 days old now so him and Gabrielle are spending a lot of time together.

Ethel: Eww. Parents cuddling. Gross.

Gabrielle: I love you, smushypoo.

Daniel: I love you too, babysweetcheeks.



Ethel: I think I need to be sick.



I leave you on a shot of Mary playing the guitar with her still-dayglo hair, two too many paparazzi watching her, and Ethel probably using the music as a cover for some plotting time.

And I promise that the next update will be a) less than a month away this time and b) actually have our heir in it.

I will agree with the above comments and add that I love that Mary's hair dye is slowly growing out. That is brilliant. And I love that Kieran and Daniel have never ever changed toward each other.

As for Iris not being in the chapter, sculpting is easy but boring and hardly worth more than three screenshots. You're forgiven. :P

Haha, I didn't notice she was in it until I noticed I hadn't made any shark jokes in that update!

They've been buying a lot of pranking stuff :)

They're totally the type that would never change! Mary's hair dye

Yeah, totally. Watching sims supermax in general gets quite boring. Probably why I always end up liking the spares slightly more. And thanks :)

Yep, you're right about Iris' hair, it's from Master Suite. And one of my favourites too.

More Young Adults



Ret: So, can I get a job here?

Woman: Shouldn't you be at school?

Ret: What do you mean? I'm not a teenager!

Truancy Officer: Yes you are.



And while Ret's busy getting arrested for truancy, Mary's having her birthday.

Ethel: Smellllyyy... smelllllyyyy... smelllllyyyyy!

Mary: Mature.



Mary: Bunches, and it's still got dye on the end of it. Despite having got shorter. This isn't logically possible.

Many things in the world of the sims aren't logically possible.



It's then Ethel's turn.

Ethel: Dad. Please. Put some clothes on or I'm refusing to age up.

Daniel: What's wrong with my pants?



Unfortunately sometimes you just do have to age up while your dad is wearing something embarrassing.



Ethel: Lilac!?!



Ethel could look really pretty with her hair down.



Or she could go for a slightly different style of bun, it's still pretty.



But no. Ethel has to go for the severe Victorian teacher hairstyle.



Graduation family snapshot.

Ret: Can't wait until prom. It's the only good use of a school building.

Mary: So hungry.

Everyone else: Can't we go home yet?



Iris: Sharks... after me... what can I do?!?

Ret: I'm never going to be popular with this lot around.



Unfortunately that shot was the last one with Daniel in it.

Gabrielle: Daniel! My love! (Why am I thinking about darts while he's dying?)

Ethel: Mum, stop it. Stop being all soppy over Dad. You're too old.

Gabrielle: Daniel! Don't go, please!

Daniel: I'll have to write a book about this!



Grim Reaper: I'll just wait out here while you have your touching moment then. By myself. *singing* Alll by myself, don't want to be all by myself, anymore!

Mary: The point you get a singing Reaper is the point everything gets truly bonkers.



Albert: Of course I'm eighteen. I have a beard!

Bouncer: It's more like fluff, but okay. Whatever.

Ret: Yessss.



Ret: I can't believe how easy it is for teens to buy juice in this game.

Neither can I.

Ret: I mean, seriously.

Hang on, how do you know it's a game?!?



However it's not a particularly cool club. Nobody else is there apart from the two teens.

Ret: We're just before the crowds.

And now they're hipsters.

Albert: Come on, let's go down and play some pool. Dancing's rubbish.



Yeah cuz that's going well.

Albert: Shut it. And you, Ret!



Albert: Ret...

Ret: What? Oh.

Albert: RUN!



They ran.



Ret: I'm sorry officer. My dad died today.

Officer: Get in the car. Now.

I'm hoping for some easy teenagers next generation. Then again Josie is quite easy, apart from when she sets herself on fire inventing. And yeah, that was really awful timing! I wasn't even meaning for them to stay there long, completely forgot about them when setting Iris up to scuplt.

<sniff> Bye, Daniel. You were my favorite heir since Lexa.

At least the teens still managed to enjoy themselves, even if they totally got caught by curfew enforcement.

I loved Daniel too! Though I honestly don't think I can rank my favourite heirs though, I'm too attached to most of them. Except Ben, who I just never quite got. I think Albert and Ret had a good time, although they were the only ones in the club the whole time!

Awww, bye Daniel. I'll miss your snark. :(

Side note: I like Iris's dress.

So will I! I think her dress is a store item, I can't remember which one though. All I know is that it's originally yellow and grey before it's recoloured.

I'm glad Daniel saw the girls grow up. It's strange, but I really thought Kieran would pass over first.
Ethel still cracks me up. She is such a pretty girl, but she has no sense of fashion at all, does she? And oh my, Ret is fun!

So did I. I had about a week of those messages saying Kieran was going to die soon, and then they stopped, but he still hasn't died. I don't think he ever did in the file before I moved towns. Maybe some part of the zombie-ness stays around!

She is, I think I'm going to have fun with her. And I was planning to move Ethel out at this point, but I don't think I can now! She's my favourite this gen.

Interlude Six - The Waiting Room

Daniel was floating through a door. If this was the afterlife, he thought, it was quite boring. And not very interactive. The path he was following was a plain corridor, and he didn't seem able to move off it. each time he tried the path pressed back, gently at first but more insistantly if he kept trying. Almost suffocatingly insistantly.



"Name?"

"Daniel Christopher CrumpleSteel." He gave his name automatically. Perhaps it was the years of giving his name on request, but he could have sworn he felt a tiny press in his throat.

"Thanks. Means of death?" The receptionist barely looked up at him as she spoke, instead watching the tapping of her fingers on the keyboard.

"Umm, I just died, I guess. It just sort of happened when I was coming home from two of my daughters' graduations. I was ninty-six."

"Old age then. Take a seat, you'll be called when you've been processed."



"What do you mean, when I've been processed?" he asked.

"Well, we can't do you all instantly. This isn't the only waiting room, and we're short-staffed today as well. Worst of all Kelly isn't even properly ill, I saw her out last night. But anyway. Take a seat and you'll be called when you've been processed."

"I don't want to be processed!" He protested, but the press was driving him towards the seat anyway.

"You think I want to process you? I'm only here until I can get enough money to go to medical school. Take a seat please, Mr CrumpleSteel."



Daniel contined protesting as he was propelled towards the nearest seat. It wasn't an uncomfortable room, although sterile and neat in a slightly morbid colour scheme. There were books and magazines he'd never seen before, something which would normally have piqued his interest, but there were too many unanswered questions to concentrate.



As he sat, as calmly as he could in the situation, a few more people entered. One was in and out almost instantly ("Unlucky, I'd bet," said the receptionist), an old man who declared he'd been electrocuted and sat down without any fuss to read a magazine, and a brightly-coloured young woman.

"Means of death?" asked the receptionist in her flat tone.

"Jelly bean bush."

"No, seriously now. How did you die?" She tried again.

"I told you, I ate a jelly bean off a bush and then I died. I wasn't expecting it either, truth be told."

"I hope you're not kidding me, because that's not an option on the system and I'm going to have to ring head office. They'll sack me if it's a prank call."

"It's not, I'm telling you!"

Daniel thought he remembered the receptionist saying she hated her job anyway.

"Hello, can I speak to Tony please? Yes, it's Cathy from Waiting Room Eleven. I've got someone in, as Miss Saskia Hall, who says she died by jelly bean and I can't find it on the system." Cathy gave the bright ghost a glare, which she rapidly rearranged into a neutral expression as she listened to Tony on the other end of the phone. "Oh... right... so I click on 'override' and then enter it manually? Great. Thanks Tony, you're the best IT man ever!"

"Told you so."

"Take a seat and you'll be called when you've been processed."



"I told her so, and I can't believe she didn't agree with me!" The bright ghost, Saskia, came and sat in the seat next to Daniel, constatly muttering under her breath. "You look like an old-age ghost," she said, this time aimed at him.

"What?"

"Like you died of old age."

"I did. Well, that's what they said over there." He gestured towards Cathy's desk.

"Ah, well, they could be wrong then. They're a bit useless up here."



"How do you know so much about it?" Daniel asked her.

"My grandad told me. He died last year. You see, there's options when you get up here. Sometimes someone from your family will put your urn out, so you'll get sent back home. My grandad was the only one that liked me though, so I'm not expecting that one. Or you can be put on a different world as a ghost, or made alive again and put on a different world, and I think there's some other options but he doesn't know what they are. Apparently sometimes it takes days to be processed. Days and days. There was a guy in here when Grandad was up that had been three weeks and they still didn't know where he was going. He'd had the entired catered menu by that time."

"There's catering?" That didn't seem like the most important question, but it was the one that came out of Daniel's mouth.

"Yeah, and the stew is to die for, my grandad said. Literally. Get it?"

Daniel laughed, because if he was going to be stuck with this girl for weeks he didn't want to be in her bad books. But she certainly liked to talk.



She was halfway through a tale about two of her sisters, which was making him painfully homesick, when a official-looking man entered.

"Mr Daniel CrumpleSteel?"

"That'll be me."

"This way please, you've been processed."



Daniel was handed a pink slip, which he didn't have a chance to read, and exited the room behind the man whose nametag proclaimed him to be Lucas Paul. Saskia waved cheerfully, and wished him a happy death. He was rather glad to be leaving her behind.
