So sorry to read you had serious lags in the game. Writing a story about a game that freezes ever so often isn't much fun. I'm glad moving to Twinbrook sorted the problem.
Brilliant continuation of the story. Poor Justin with his broken heart; Iris totally bonkers, if not more not that she's become a mum; Alys whos seems to have a case of early dementia... I can't stop laughing.
And Nathaniel is a gorgeous tod! :)

He looks so much like Iris that he'll never give it away. Let her think that all she wants :P

He is so cute!

Exactly :) Nobody will ever need to know! Except the entire of the internet that is.

Welcome to Nathaniel! He shall be just as amazing as all the other heirs and complete all his requirements while never ceasing to amuse us all, right?

That he will. I hope! Though him being more calm than Iris might be a good thing...

I think it was just that the file was massive, and the crashes meant I was playing the same things over and over. There are parts of the story where there are screenshots from more than one attempt at playing that day of game-time! Alys amuses me a lot, but not quite as much as Iris and her lovely weirdness.

A Day in the Madhouse



Iris: Now we learn to potty.

Nathaniel: Why am I still wearing my shorts?

Iris: I don't know. I'm not a boy. Justin? Help?



Iris: He's sleeping. He's finally sleeping.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

Iris: I intend to.



Justin's an involved daddy.

Justin: Here you are, little bunny.



Nathaniel: I can do this. I can do this.



Nathaniel: Help! Daddy! I can't do this! I've forgotten what I do with my leg!

Justin: Lower it towards the floor, nice and slowly now...



Alys retires, because her job isn't going to help her achieve her lifetime wish and she's in her eighties already. She wants to be an alchemist.



Justin: Why do we have a washing machine? Doesn't our watcher know that if you don't buy a washing machine the washing doesn't need doing?

I wish that was the case in real life as well.



When I first saw this paparazzi I wondered if Ret had somehow followed us to the new town. Though on a closer look it looks nothing like her.



A bonus shot of Bunny Boy. Everyone else is too busy being bonkers to pay attention to him so he's having fun with his dolls.



Justin: Never before have I been so pleased to go to work and nap.

You didn't go to work before you joined this household.

Justin: But I also didn't have a kid who will not sleep then. I don't even know what to try, short of nectar.



Iris: Really dodgy waffles.

Paparazzi: Ewww! Iris!

Alys: What you saying about my wife?



Never insult the wife of a sleep-deprived alchemist.



Iris: Rock-a-bye bunny, on the tree tops...

Nathaniel: Bunnies don't go up trees. Can't we play dolls?

Iris: It's 3am. Please sleep.

Nathaniel: No!



Justin: I still love you.

Iris: I still love you too.

Oh no. Oh no you don't.



Oh yes you just did. This never ends well.



Paparazzi Number 3: I don't know how I got here.

Alys: Don't look at me.

The game just keeps generating paparazzis. We had about three new ones in the space of a day, then the old ones came back again. I'm sure they travel in packs.

Alys: Probably scared of Iris puking at them.

Or you throwing Flasks of Sleep at them.



Iris: I hate myself.

Well, I did tell you not to kiss Justin.

Iris: No, not that. I can't find my penguin.

Oh. Right. Obviously.



And Justin hits adulthood.

Justin: Yep, and we'll leave this update there, thanks. Bye forum! Goodbye now!

Iris' singing voice probably should never be inflicted on the world, but I'd love to see that. *plots*

That part is dedicated to my friend who's just had a baby and I don't think has slept more than an hour a night since! Doesn't make me look forward to having kids...

Exactly. Poor Iris. Nathaniel just wouldn't go on the same sleeping schedule as everyone else wanted to be on.

What a funny household they are!
And Nathaniel is too cute: Nathaniel: Help! Daddy! I can't do this! I've forgotten what I do with my leg! Awww!! :D
But the thing with the paparazzis is strange, maybe the game generates all of them due to their tendency to die from one second to another? To bes ure that there will be all the time one around the house?

He's adorable isn't he? I think it must be something like that, I've had lots of games where I've had two paparazzi floating around the lot. But this file seems to be generating really weird amounts of them!

Large and in Charge



Alys: So, be my friend?

Jenni: Oh come on. I know the dynasty rules. The ten best friends have to be in place at moving time and you won't be around then.

Mean.



In the background of the last picture you can see what the firefighters were doing while all the fires hit Twinbrook. Staring at brick walls. How useless.

Firefighter: Has anyone seen my pager?



Alys: For alchemy!

Robert Castor: For what?



Robert: Actually, this weight kinda suits me. I might get that job as Santa Claus after all.



Scout Sargeant: How am I supposed to chase criminals now?



Jeffery: I either love you or hate you right now.

Alys: Let's go for hate because you're a teen and it'd be really quite weird if you loved me.



Just so this update doesn't start to entirely consist of things Alys did, lets include some of the things Alys helped Nathaniel do, like have a birthday.

Iris: Maybe I'll get some sleep now.



Nathaniel: I'm going to blow them out all by myself!

Alys: Of course you will dear!

Iris: Liars.



Nathaniel: Do I have hair? Where's my hair?

Iris: Hahahaha you have a bowl cut! Bowl cut!

Lack of sleep makes Iris really quite mean.



He becomes an Angler. That may or may not give you a clue as to his supermax skill.

Iris: Surprised he can see any fish with that hair over his eyes.



He's basically a male Iris.

Alys: I can't see anything of myself in him.

Umm. Moving swiftly on...



He immediately heads off to get a class in fishing. I've never really been sure what they can teach you in a grocery store about fishing. I don't think bait works on frozen fish.



Nathaniel: I'm bored.

No you're not.

Nathaniel: Yes I am. There's no fish. This is really really boring!

You should probably learn to like it because you don't have a choice. On the plus side, you won't really be doing it until you become a Young Adult so I can make sure you get the skill opportunities.



Justin: A is for apple. B is for banana.

Nathaniel: You're not going to be my teacher are you?

Justin: No.

Nathaniel: Good. You're embarrassing!

Justin: What did I do?!

You're his father. That's all it takes.



Iris becomes an elder.



We went with her original hair colour again.

Iris is a seriously gorgeous elder.

Iris is looking rather nice with a new hair colour. Nathaniel does look like a male Iris! I really hope that Alys does figure out Nathaniel isnt really her son. Can't wait to fund out about the mysterious looking imaginary friend.

I'm not sure which, but she's definitely one of those things. I like his hair too, especially the fact that it's blue and spiky.

Nathaniel is so adorable! Looks like Kris Sekemoto's genes have left the family.

Iris is a seriously gorgeous elder.

Yep, I think they have! We'd notice if they hadn't, it's not like they were particularly subtle genes. And I agree with you about Iris.

Is Iris and elder already? How time flies! Wish Nathaniel good luck on his SuperMax!

Yep, it crept up on me too! Nate will want all the good luck he can get :)

Iris looks good in that hair color and is that her imaginary freind.

It's not Iris' IF, she never got one for some reason. Its one of the reasons she couldn't supermax photography.

Iris is looking rather nice with a new hair colour. Nathaniel does look like a male Iris! I really hope that Alys does figure out Nathaniel isnt really her son. Can't wait to fund out about the mysterious looking imaginary friend.

He really does! Kinda scary really. She doesn't seem to have figured it out so far, but that's just going on the fact she's never accused Iris of cheating.

Looking good Nathaniel! I hope his imaginary friend becomes real because there is a severe lack of children in this generation! Well, compared to the number of kids in Iris' generation...

I think I went slightly over-the-top on kids last generation! So, sorry that there won't be as many this time round. I considered trying to have more this gen, but thought it'd probably drive me totally insane.

Becoming Less Imaginary



Iris: This is my elbow. Have you met my elbow? He says he's pleased to meet you.

Nathaniel: Umm. Hi mummy's elbow.

Iris: He's a big celebrity. Want a picture with him?

Nathaniel: Mummy, I think you're going crazy.

Going? She went crazy a long time ago, love.



Nathaniel: So then she started arguing with her elbow about who of them was the biggest celebrity. And she says I'm mad because I believe I have a friend called Laura.

Laura: We could prove that you're not.

Nathaniel: How?

Laura: You need to steal the orange potion from your dad's chemistry table.



Laura: Are you sure you stole the right one?



Laura: Panic over.

Nathaniel: You look different to how I imagined you.

Your imaginary friend looks different to how you imagined her. Right.



Laura is a supernatural fan, couch potato and a virtuoso. Her favourite colour is lime green, but I think the IF outfits are awesome on child sims and so she's going to be staying in her dress for now.



Laura: Look out below! Dragons are invading! Batten down the hatches!



Nathaniel: Worse! I can see PARENTS coming!

Laura: Activate the defences!

Nathaniel: Attack!

Justin: Children, teatime!



Alys: Hang on a minute. Iris had a kid. I can't be the father, cuz I'm not a man. So who is?

Iris: She can't see me. I'm in a disguise.

Alys: Iris, I can see it's you, and I'm not happy.

Iris: Not happy is better than angry.

Weirdly Alys didn't accus Iris of cheating but she still got the betrayed moodlet.



Laura: So you have two mummies and a daddy?

Nathaniel: Yeah. It's weird.

Laura: I have no mummies or daddies. That's weirder.

Nathaniel: I'll share. You can have Mummy Iris.

Laura: No thanks.



Laura: Vroom. Vroom vroom vroom!

Iris: I think you'll find cars go oink.

Laura: *ignores Iris*



Laura: What's school like?

Nathaniel: Boring. And confusing.

Laura: More confusing than Iris?

Nathaniel: No. Nothing's that confusing.



Alys: Iris, I think I've been harsh. We both had the wish to have a child, so you were just doing what you could to make that happen for us. I just wish we could have talked about it.

We can add marriage reconciliation to the list of sim things to happen in a bathroom now. Also, note that Iris is actually wearing her everyday wear!

Iris: I couldn't talk about it, I was looking for a snorkel.

Alys: A snorkel?

Iris: Sharks will keep supremacy over the underwater realms if we can't snorkel!



Alys: I love you, Iris. Even if you're paranoid.

Iris: *muffled* It's not paranoia, they really are out to get us!



Laura: If I lift two 1kg dumbbells, how much will I be lifting?

Nathaniel: 1... + 1... = ... um. Looks like a window to me.

Laura: So I'll be lifting a window. Awesome.



Iris: Surprise!



In dynasty requirements news, Iris has completed the collection. Sculptures, which will sit around and merrily increase in value.



And because we haven't seen Justin yet this chapter, here he is reading a work opportunity book and sensibly keeping out of the way.

Yep, October is Iris' grandma. Perhaps we need a family tree...

Not that Iris can call anyone bonkers without being a total hypocrite. Mr Hand and Mr Elbow just seem to agree with everything Iris says.

I agree with Laura, I wouldn't choose to have Iris...Although Alys is also pretty crazy if she only just realised she wasn't the father of Nathaniel...

Neither would I. I've checked and Alys doesn't have the insane or absent minded traits. Possibly there's an unperceptive hidden trait?

I was wondering when Alys would figure that out...hahaha it took forever! And Nathaniel, trying to give Iris away--hahaha.

So was I! For a while I thought she never would. Even though it shot their relationship for a while I'm quite glad she noticed in a weird way!

I don't really blame Laura for not wanting Mummy Iris, although I may have chosen her; a) For the laugh of it, b) Because Iris may feel left out (If she noticed) and c) Because Alys's name is too similar to my own, so that could get confusing. I wonder how the Royal Families manage it. "Hello Prince Henry VIII. Your Father King Henry VII wants to see you."

Also, I love how Nathaniels imaginary friend looked different to how he imagined. Genius!

Iris isn't quite as dizzy as Alys, so she might well have noticed! And yeah, I've always thought that about the royal family, or any family that names kids after parents. My family's not quite so mad, but every oldest girl has the same middle name which is a little weird.

Nate might not be insane, but he's definitely managed to inherit some of his mum's crazy.
