Poor Gala Ball.... ;D I thought she was a Twinbrook townie, but I must be mistaken. 

Ret is pretty, so is Josie!

I'm sorry about your file crashing, I hope it gets better.  :(

Woot a wedding I like weddings. You have come so far you must be really proud of yourself.

Rachel

I like weddings too, especially real life weddings. I'm amazed I've got this far actually. I think the DecaDynasty is harder than doing an Immortal Dynasty, there's a lot more to juggle.

Poor Gala Ball.... ;D I thought she was a Twinbrook townie, but I must be mistaken. 

Ret is pretty, so is Josie!

I'm sorry about your file crashing, I hope it gets better.  :(

You're right, she is! For some reason I'd written that down in my notes, and when I looked on the sims wiki just now it's actually Doris Lucas who's the sim I'm referring to. My only defence is that I've been playing in Twinbrook a lot lately... I'll go back and change it now.

And the file crashing never did get better, that's why the CrumpleSteels moved town. It's a shame because I liked Lunar Lakes!

I thought that Iris was just being nutty with referring to Doris as Gala.

I also agree with you on Ret's features; I love how unique she looks, but I think that Josie has her own unique charm too.

I don't know if that means I'm more insane than Iris... That's a scary thought. Both of the girls are really pretty, I've been lucky in the genes I've had this generation.

Something Blue



Iris dyes her hair to try and see off her midlife crisis. It doesn't work but it does match her outfit nicely.

Iris: It's a shame you can't match your shoes to your bag in the Sims.



One more day, Gabrielle. You only had to make it through one more day.

Gabrielle: I'm going to see Daniel now though. I'm happy.

I didn't give as much attention to Gabi as I should have. With a full household for most of the time it's inevitable that someone won't get as much spotlight, and it was always her. But she did a really amazing job of having a lot of kids and raising them all.



Albert: MUM!

Josie: So at work today, I...

Typical, the twins come running when a random paparazzi dies but they don't notice their own mother dying.



Iris: Ahhh! Mum! Life will never be the same... oh, is that my last opportunity. Be right back!



Rest in peace Gabrielle CrumpleSteel, and may you enjoy eternity with Daniel.



Ethel chooses this sentimental moment to grab the attention for herself and age up.

Ethel: No loose hair no loose hair no loose hair



And... she ages up 2D. I didn't know that was possible.

Ethel: Sort it. I can't steal while flat!



Last NPC friend - check.



And here's a shot of Iris doing something in the right outfit

Forum: *gasp*

Yes, this chapter has no coherent plot. At least I'm acknowledging it and you get to see all the screenshots I had lying around.



There was supposed to be a screenshot of Iris completing her last opportunity, but instead you get this one of her standing round in China looking confusedly at her own pyjamas. I assume it makes sense to her, but the rest of the world will probably never know.



And when she gets back it's time for...

Iris: What do you think of the shark situation?

No, no, no! It's not time for that!



That's what it's time for!

This is totally a marriage of convenience. Unless someone had learnt alchemy without a placed elixir consigment store, the only available, non-related men were NPCs. So Iris' only option was to marry her best friend Alys and find a baby-daddy on arrival in her new town.



They marry on the spot, just because I don't want a meteor to come and wipe them out before they can. Knowing my luck in this file, it'd happen.



Alys: So what now?

Iris: We get on the shuttle.

Alys: To where?

Iris: Wherever it's going, and wherever there's not any water.

Umm. that's a hard one!

Iris: You'll find a way, or I won't get pregnant.

Eight down, two to go.

Woot! Congratulations, Iris! I can't wait to see where they're headed.

Thanks! You'll find out soon...

Where there isn't any water? So not the swimming pool then? Iris's hair looks good blue, I can't wait to see gen 9.  :)

I'm sure I saw someone build an underwater home on a dynasty once - might have been one of Orange Iguana's attempts. It was awesome but not at all suitable for Iris!

Oooh, I can't wait to see where they move to. Congrats on finishing generation 8! So sad that Gabi is gone...but as she said, she's with Daniel again.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm sad Gabi went just before we moved. Though I think she's probably happier now. Her and Daniel will finally be able to have some time without their kids arguing constantly.

Congrats in the eighth move! Only two more generations until you get your second entry into the Hall of Fame!

Thanks! Here's hoping we get through the next two...

I've had it occasionally as well, but it's normally only for a split second. Ethel was like that for a while!

Emily and Georgia? I'm going to see if I've got a save with them in, I think they're the only main characters from this I don't have saved to my bin. Lexa's awesome too.

Interlude 7



Harry (internally): Guarding a door. Seriously. I get all the worst jobs. Nobody's even told me what I'm waiting here for! Bet it's because I'm a spare. Ooh, you're a spare Harry, go guard that door! Go get us coffee! Dance for us Harry, you're a spare and you have to do what you're told!



Hazel: That's a little unfair.

Harry: And I can't even mind-read! It's not fair and it's never been fair!

Hazel: Trust me, mind-readings less fun than you'd think. Most the time all you get is people deciding what to have for lunch.

Harry: Well then, why don't you guard this door?

Hazel: Little brother, that's not even a logical progession of your argument.



Hazel: Let's get this straight. I'm actually coming to take over for you on door duty, seeing as it's my turn. Also, you could have gone off and had a nice afterlife like some of the other second-borns did, you got the choice whether to come and do this. I didn't. And thirdly, I seem to remember that yesterday you were bragging about how exciting being involved was to those girls you were trying to chat up.

Harry: Yeah, but that was yesterday.

Hazel: And you didn't even succeed in chatting anyone up.

Harry: Big sister, that's not a logical progression of your argument.

Hazel: It so is.



Lexa: ** Kelsey holding me up with her new shark-wotsit invention. It won't work and I'm late.



Harry: It so isn't.

Hazel: You're a pain.

Harry: I know, it's why you love me.



Lexa: Clearly not too late if they're still bickering.



Lexa: Hazel, has he arrived yet?

Hazel: Umm..



Lexa: The door, remember? The door!

Harry and Hazel: We remember about the door. (internally) Oh the door.

Lexa: The door! The door is everything! All that was and all that will be!

Harry: I think you're over-egging it a bit there, Lex.



Daniel: Am I here? Anyone? Or have I got off at the wrong stop?



Lexa: Hi, I'm Lexa. I'm your famous ancestor. I hear you're good at writing, that'll be useful. Now hurry, the meeting's about to start.

Harry: I think I'm going to have salad for lunch.

Hazel: Good for you.

And The Winner Is...

Twinbrook!



We start in our new town with a fire. Iris attempted to go on a date with the targeted father of generation 9 and somehow everything ended up on fire at the bistro.

You can see Sinbad Rotter with his bum on fire there.



For a town where they invented firefighters, they're all really quite useless at actually firefighting. Or even any kind of basic fire safety like getting away from the area. I'm sure Renee Jones-Brown has moved closer to the fire since it started.



But finally, Iris to the rescue. I think she's still carrying one of the two firefighter hidden traits from Sam back in generation one. That's a look of pure concentration on her face there as well.

Iris: How do you work this thing?



Iris successfully fights the flames while I think Renee tries to hail a taxi. Possibly.



Instead of thanking Iris, the town complains they're tired after all that panicking.

Tim Burre: I'm too starstruck to even speak to her. Iris CrumpleSteel! She's been in movies!

Iris: My date's just died, I saved the town, and absolutely nobody's noticed.

Renee Jones-Brown: Well, that was fun.



Oh yes. Sinbad Rotter, targeted father of generation 9, died of bum-on-fire syndrome.

Grim: Evil. Excellent. A new recruit.

Sinbad: This is going to be way more fun than having babies with a madwoman.

Iris: What madwoman?



Sinbad was so popular, everyone's mourning his death.



Iris: Hello, I've just arrived in this town and I need someone awesome to father my child. I need you! Oh, wait, you've got children already, you're out. Umm. Subject change. So, I like astronauts.

Robert Castor: The bigger problem here is that I'm married.

Iris: That's not a problem in dynasties. Everyone knows that.

Come on Iris, he wasn't even on the targeted spouse list.

Iris: Aren't I allowed free rein?

No, because this is what happens when you get free rein.



Iris: I don't even want love. How hard can it be to find someone who'll get me a baby?



It's time for targetted spouse number 2. However it looks like Dilly Pidgin got there first.

Dilly: I have a sparkly new house. Except I live with my mother.

Iris: Well she's no competition.

Lang Gwyd: You could pick me. Out of all the guys in this house nobody ever picks me.



Justin has such a good set of goofy face expressions.



Iris: Hey there gorgeous. Wanna make some babies?

Justin: You're so blue. And so pretty.



Iris: Oh yeah. Any girlfriends? Any mystery kids already?

Trust the forum, Iris.

Justin: Nope, just you, blue lady.

Wow! I had an idea that it would be Twinbrook but it certainly started interestingly! I mean having Sinbad dying and Iris saving the town. There seemed to be quite a few Sims at the bistro. Jusitn will be a great Gen 9 father.

I know! I was hoping for a nice relaxed start... There weren't many sims there when Iris and Sinbad arrived, but they all seemed to be drawn to the fire and by the time the Grim Reaper arrived most of the town was there. You think you'd stay away, but not sims!

And you can always do something about the ears. But on the whole, I approve. Glad to see the lists are being helpful. Good luck, Iris! You're getting off to a great start.

I didn't end up doing anything about the ears and I don't think generation 9 has inherited them. Which is probably a good thing. And yeah, the lists were really useful!

I had a sneaking suspicion it would be Twinbrook. You mentioned you'd been playing there a lot lately when you mistakenly called that passed-out woman Gala Ball. I'm excited to see Justin featured. I think he's very cute. It's too bad about Sinbad though.

Not that Justin is a downgrade. Um, not even close. ;D

Yeah, that did kinda give it away! Not that Gala Ball appears in it at all as far as I've played (generation nine is a child) so I still don't understand why I called her Gala. I really do feel sorry for Sinbad too, it's really just not fair to die on your first day in a file!

RIP Sinbad. It's a shame that your pretty babies won't be a part of the Crumplesteels.

It was pretty much a toss-up between Justin and Sinbad for the first choice spouse, so maybe this is the game's way of saying I should have picked Justin in the first place. And, yeah, I thought you might approve of the town!

Babymakers



It turns out Iris is awful at flirting.

Iris: If I had a phone, I'd send you love texts every day.

Justin: You do, we just got University.



Iris: If we could make roast dinner, I'd make you one every Sunday.

Justin: Mmm. That's more like it.



The traditional bathroom courtship picture is the mark of any good dynasty. Sappy faces included completely free!



And another fire is too, apparently.



Justin: Fire! FIRE!

The fire alarm is in the kitchen and isn't going off. I don't know if it's meant to be. And instead of putting the fire out, Justin is shoving his bum in front of my camera.

Justin: It's a really big fire!

And you have a really big bum, but it's not going to stop the fire spreading.



Justin: Help me! fire!

He's useless. Iris comes to the rescue once again.



And weirdly it doesn't seem to put a damper on their flirting.

Iris: Stop panicking and kiss me.

Justin: Okay.



You know what's going to happen next.



Alys, for those of you that've remembered her, is out collecting alchemy ingredients for her LTW. So she's not a witness to all this. I plan to keep her and Iris married so it's probably best she doesn't.

Alys: I'm really tired, can I go home yet?



*checks*

Erm, no. Sorry. You've got a few more things you need to do.

Alys: But it's 1am! Nowhere's open.

Everythings 24hrs in the sims. Nowhere else can you get a painting lesson or a tour of the science centre at 2am. Make use of it! People in the real world would love it!

Alys: Hmm.

Fine, go home.



Tim Burre isn't showing as a paparazzi, but he still won't leave our front porch. I don't think he's slept, eaten or peed for three days. He's too busy checking the forum for mentions of himself in stories. I think he's jealous of Chris Steel for getting all the female founders.



Iris: Can we be just friends?

Justin: What? We had something beautiful together!

Iris: Yeah, we'll have a beautiful baby together. But I have a wife, and you should probably go get a job or something. Or a wife. Or a husband, I dunno.

Justin: I can't believe you used me.

Iris: Get used to it, you're in a dynasty. At least the sharks aren't chasing you!

Justin: Sharks? What do you mean about sharks?

Don't start her off. Seriously.



Justin, in a bid to make Iris like him again, gets a restyle. That and I wanted to try out the new University stuff. I think dreads quite suit him.



Iris: Give me my dignity!

Get used to it, you're in a dynasty.

Iris: That's not fair, you can't turn my own words against me!



Everyday outfit.



Formal.



Sleepwear. Definitely out to impress.



Alys also gets a new hairstyle. It's only after I'd saved and quit the game that I realised I'd given her the same one as Gabrielle in the last generation.

In my defence, it was late!

 

anything
