Technically, you can't get a painting lesson at 2 am. I don't know why the heck not, but I always have to wait until six for lessons. Anyway, Looking forward to that nooboo! Out of curiosity, why do you want to keep Alys and Iris married?

Just one of those things us Simmers know. lol

Justing looks much more hip with his new makeover. I can't wait to see more of him. Maybe Alys wants to be like Gabrielle and be an amazing dynasty spouse who dies a day before the next generation moves?

I'm sure I have in the past... maybe it was changed by a patch? Or I had a glitch which is probably more likely.

I'd quite like to keep them married because it's not Alys' fault she's not able give Iris a baby, and I like my sim couples to stay together for as long as they can and be happy. If it had been a legacy I'd have had them adopt. I've broken sim couples up if they're totally incompatible or for the needs of a storyline before, but I don't like to when they're a nice couple and getting along. And also I quite like the challenge of getting generation 9 while keeping the marriage intact. Possibly slightly weird, but there you are!

Maybe she does! I kinda hope she does although at the time generation 9 aged to teen she was already 94 days so I suspect it's unlikely. Then again I had a sim live to 126 once! Justin will be around for a long time yet! And yeah, there are all sorts of bizarre facts about the game only a true simmer would know. I tried to introduce my fiancé to it and he couldn't understand how there were so many tiny little things I knew about the game. He thought it was boring...

Your reason is much sweeter than the one I thought of -- that you wanted Alys to supply the tombstone. On the other hand, in order to do that, she has to score 75,000 happiness points, so it's not really exploitation.

The dreadlocks really work on Justin and definitely minimize the impact of his ears.

Well, that would be nice as well. :)

And yeah, I was surprised how well the dreadlocks suited him considering his ears. He's actually a really nice looking sim, I think.

Well, they didn't have to stay married in order for her to provide the tombstone. I get that. I just thought it was a simple marriage of convenience because there were no eligible males. It didn't seem like they were really in love, but what do I know? I'm not playing them.

I vaguely remember being able to take classes in the middle of the night, but it was a very long time ago.

So did I originally. Then Alys kept popping wishes for Iris, and Iris even started having them back (hers are about 50/50 for Alys and Justin). And they kept autonomously going for romantic interactions. So maybe I was wrong!

I think I'm thinking you because for a long time the game my laptop wasn't patched up right, because it's a Mac and the patches made it really weird. I've checked and you're right, you can't from about midnight. Guess I know now!

Help Me Please



Another fire?

Justin: Fire! Fire! Help!

And Justin still has no idea how to deal with one.

Justin: I can't remember the phone number! Maybe I'll send them an email.

Computer geeks should not be trusted with fire.



Justin: You've hurt my feelings.

Now is not the time to be complaining about hurt feelings, now is the time to be putting out the fire.

Justin: I might cry.

Iris for a third time comes the rescue.



Oh god, don't provoke it again!

Justin: Actually I'm putting it out.

The most sensible thing anyone's done so far in this file.



Meanwhile fire hero Iris is pregnant.

Iris: Yay, baby me. You can be my mini-me. You'll be just like me.

That's a scary prospect.

Iris: I'll teach you everything I know.

Alys: Please don't.



Iris: You're not allowed to dangle them upside down, you're not allowed to give them dangerous weapons, you're not allowed to give them nectar. So what's the point of having a baby?

To continue the dynasty.

Iris: Meh.



Justin meanwhile has become a teacher, because I like the teacher career.



And is seriously hating Iris for making them just be friends.

Justin: She said she loved me. She said she cared.



Iris: Actually I didn't. I said I'd make you a roast dinner every Sunday if I could, and I can't, so I haven't actually gone back on any of my promises.

*checks Iris isn't in the politics career*



Alys: A paparazzi has their head in my wall. I don't know what to think about that.

Tim Burre: Nice wall though.



Oh yes. The paparazzi are multiplying. Breeding possibly. On my doorstep.



Iris: I'm having a baby. I don't know if I should be trusted with a baby.

Neither do I.



Iris: I don't care if you're a sim too, you're a Shark first and foremost! Just wait until Kelsey gets back, and we'll talk!

Wrong story.



Iris: And so you see, Sharks are not to be trusted.

Bonkers. Totally so.



Justin: First used for my ability to father a child, then used as a handyman. I'm never going to speak to her again. I'm never going to speak to any woman again.



Justin: Awww, nooboo!



Iris: The baby book didn't tell me this'd hurt!

I'm fairly sure it did.

Iris: I skipped the childbirth part, it didn't look nice.

That'll explain it then.



Iris: Actually, I'm quite tired. This'll have to wait until the morning.

I love it that Iris wants to take a nap. Sure, go ahead and sleep. The baby will wait.

I feel the nooboo might need some good luck from the forum, with Iris as the main parent. Lets just hope they don't aspire to be taught to be a firefighter by Justin... Iris may help. But I don't see why she would want to get rid of fire. The heat will make the water evaporate so the sharks will die.

Yay, I'm glad someone noticed that! I think that episode is my favourite of them all.

So do I. And for Justin. Iris isn't someone I'd trust with a pet (if I had Pets), let alone a nooboo.

I hope the nooboo has blue hair.

All will soon be revealed! But yeah, blue hair is awesome.

I love it that Iris wants to take a nap. Sure, go ahead and sleep. The baby will wait.

Poor baby. I really really do feel sorry for it.

Hilarious. Especially how it coincides with the chapter break. I cannot wait to see this nooboo!

They're on their way! (Got so confused about which form of there, they're and their to use then...)

Yeah, Justin's firefighting skills hopefully aren't genetic. But that's a very good point about Iris and the fire, and considering Kelsey was a firefighter that's clearly something they haven't worked out yet!

In Which Iris Buys the Fireproof Homestead Reward



Iris: What do you mean the baby won't wait? I put clean sheets on and everything!



Welcome to generation 9, Nathaniel CrumpleSteel. Be afraid, Nathaniel, be very afraid. The way Iris is going as a mother so far you'll be applying to all the orphanage projects you can to get away.

Iris: I'm a good mother, I'm holding him the right way up and everything.

Forgive me if I don't congratulate you for having had your baby only five seconds and having not yet managed to drop him.

Iris: Oops.



Justin: You're adorable, aren't you? Just adorable. You look much like any other nooboo but somehow you're the most adorable one ever. So adorable.

The word adorable is starting to lose all meaning.



Alys: So...tired... Why does he cry every time I go to sleep?

Why are you looking after him instead of either of the actual parents?



Iris: That's not fair! How did you get my number?

Voice on the other end of the phone (VOTOEOTP): I looked in the phone directory under 'Shark Hunters'.



Iris: I've stuck my figures in my ears and if I can't hear you you're not there!

VOTOEOTP: Mature.

Iris: I'm an adult, and I have a baby! I'm more mature than you and I don't even know who you are!

VOTOEOTP: Just do me a favour and have the stuff ready when you come. Please.



Alys: Day 3 of constant crying. I think I'm going insane.

The weirdest thing about the birth of Nathaniel is that Alys hasn't registered Iris as cheating even though she was pregnant and Alys clearly couldn't have got her pregnant. I guess the game's code only notices where there's a current Romantic Interest or where someone witnesses the cheating. But I still find it funny that Alys hasn't even really questioned where this baby has suddenly come from.



It's time for cake. Except you'll have to imagine the cake as I forgot to get a screenshot with the cake in it.



And is that blue hair I see?

Iris: I got him to toddlerhood and I only dropped him twice!

That's not an achievement.



I'm actually quite disappointed he seems to be a male version of Iris rather than inheriting anything from Justin. Though the blue hair and purple eyes are awesome, I quite wanted some of Justin's facial features.



His favourite colour is hot pink but after Albert I've run out of ideas for hot pink outfits, so he's being dressed in yellow and green for now. No real reason. He Loves the Outdoors and is Good.



And Iris has no more of an idea how to deal with a toddler as she does with a baby.

Nathaniel: *cries*

Iris: Why are you crying? Why can't you talk already? Why don't you have a little speech bubble over your head to tell me what you need, like a little sign to say you're smelly?

Alys: I don't think now's a good time to mention she's in my way.



Iris: Diamond.

Nathaniel: What's a diamond?



Iris: I don't know. Why do you ask such difficult questions?

Nathaniel: Tell me mummy!



Iris: And you can't be a criminal.

Nathaniel: Criminal bad!

Iris: No, not bad necessarily, Granny Lexa was one. But that's why you can't be one because she was.

Nathaniel: Copying's bad!

Iris: Kinda, yeah.



He's kinda cute isn't he.



Alys: I thought him becoming a toddler would mean less crying. But no. He's got bigger lungs now and cries louder.

Huzzah, Nathaniel! (Favorite boy name ever.)

Iris's parenting tactics are hilarious! And maybe Alys thinks she got Iris pregnant? Even though it's technically impossible . . .

Really? Awesome. It's one of my favourites too! The family tree shows Alys as Nathaniel's step-mum so it knows she's involved. But... weird. Maybe she does think she's the father!
