Teens



Laura: Tag!

Nathaniel: Urgh.



Justin is still improving his charisma skill. I don't blame him for doing it outside the house given that his conversational partners in the house are either a) children or b) mad and so they'd probably drag his charisma skill down rather than up.

Justin: So, what do you do for a living?

Not that he's moved all that much past the basics by the looks of it anyway.



In the rest of his spare time he upgrades everything in the house to be unbreakable. It's so, so worth it.

Iris: Not when I can't use the sink it's not.

You can't use it when it's broken either.

Iris: Can too. I'll wash stuff in the spray. OMG I should add bubbles!



Laura and Nathaniel: Bob the Builder, can he fix it? Bob the Builder, yes he can!

It's an unusual choice for karaoke, I've got to say.



You won't see very much skilling at all from Nate as a child or teen, because of wanting to get as many of the skill opps for fishing to trigger as possible when he's a Young Adult.



Nathaniel: Beach! Yay!

Twinbrook's beach has it's own special charm, but it's not really the sort of place you'd take your kids on a day out. So Iris, being a highly responsible mother, lets the kids go to the beach by themselves. Because obviously letting kids have unsupervised access to a lot of water is a really, really good idea.

Iris: Don't blame me. Blame whoever made the Sims 3.



Laura: This beach is rubbish. And boring.

Alys: When I was young, all the beaches were like this, and we didn't have video games.

Laura: That's because when you were young it was in the bronze age. No, the stone age!



Nathaniel: It's really cold in the water. Like really, really cold.



Soon they'll have the whole world of teenage entertainment open to them, which in reality means dating and a couple of new skills (most of which Nathaniel isn't allowed to learn anyway). Laura goes first at the cakes, possibly because she's pushy.



She becomes charismatic, so she can be our friend-maker for this generation.



And then Nate, our heir. It's weird knowing that there's only one more baby, toddler and child stage for a heir to go through.



Here he is.

Iris: Yay, a butterfly! Come on butterfly, you can do it!

He's gained the Brave trait. He randomly popped a wish as a child to become an International Super Spy and so he's going into the police as a career. I didn't totally have a plan for him and so that one seems a good as any.



New hairstyle.



New everyday wear.



New formal, complete with snazzy waistcoat.



And teenaged Laura. After gaining the charismatic trait she also triggered a LTW to have a Golden Tongue and Golden Fingers. Again, it seemed as good as any for our little friend-maker.



If Nathaniel's dress style is laid back and casual, Laura's is a bit more out there.

Laura: Oh yeah! Look at me!



I sent Laura round to the Jones-Brown household to see if Jenni's baby was a girl. I was hoping it would be so that they'd be a nice spouse for Nathaniel.

But meet Kenyon Jones-Brown.

Laura: Oh, hey there. I'm Laura. Who're you? Do you go to Starry High?

Kenyon: Umm. I'm... K-k-kenyon.

Laura: Cool name, K-k-kenyon.

Kenyon: T-thanks.



Meanwhile Nathaniel does his homework by himself, before he's even been to school for the first time, oblivious to the fact that his best mate has been out looking for a future spouse for him. He's a weird, weird child.

Nathaniel: I don't get algebra.

They haven't taught it to you yet, might be why.



Iris: Can't you see the sharks are after us! Algebra is useless! You're fired!

You can't fire your own son.

Iris: Watch me!

*gets popcorn*



Justin: Hi there. Hey. Hiya! Hello.

I'll leave you all to it...

Sorry about the Jones-Brown kid being a boy. They always have such good genes.

As a kid, I swore that Nathaniel ended up with Justin's jaw, but I guess not. He's still a pretty cute teen.

Nathaniel and Laura are gorgeous teens! It's a little creepy how much Laura looks like Verity . . .

Ooh, marry Laura off to Kenyon! Always get Goode genes into the family when you can! And he turned out very nicely. Looks like his father. I find the boys usually do.

Oooh! Nathaniel is so good looking! I love his hair - both as a child and now as a teen.
I was kind of hoping you would ship Laura and Nathaniel. They are so cute together.
Super entertaining updates as always!  ;D

You are so right about the Twinbrook beach -- toxic spill, anyone? I also thought Jenni Jones-Brown always had girls. Good luck -- you're so close!

Huh. I can't say I've ever seen the Jones-Brown baby be anything but female in my games. Kenyon looks to be a handsome fellow, at least from the side.

One less spouse prospect for Nathaniel though. :(

As a kid, I swore that Nathaniel ended up with Justin's jaw, but I guess not. He's still a pretty cute teen.

Yeah, for a while I though he looked a little bit more like Justin too. I can't say I'm sad he didn't get the ears, but it's a shame he doesn't look a bit more like his dad. And it was actually Clarissa and Samhain in your Immortal dynasty that made the Jones-Brown kid the first choice spouse!

I really wish you could extend Iris's life, because I love her, but I know you need her to go to the afterlife  :'(

Nathaniel and Laura are gorgeous teens! It's a little creepy how much Laura looks like Verity . . .

So do I. I love playing Iris. I might put her up on the swap shop when I get a chance. And yeah, I find that the IFs all look pretty similar.

Ooh, marry Laura off to Kenyon! Always get Goode genes into the family when you can! And he turned out very nicely. Looks like his father. I find the boys usually do.

That's already my plan! The first nooboo is gorgeous. And yeah, Kenyon has turned out really nice looking (who says all of Twinbrook is ugly?) He's got his mum's hair colour though which seems to usually happen in my Jones-Brown kids.

It was so tempting to finish the song there!

Genius! A simply genius line!

I was humming it for the rest of the day after writing the update. Really, really annoying...

Nathaniel and Laura are such sweet children! Kinda funny that Laura was out spouse hunting for Nathaniel. Is this really Generation 9? You're so close now!

Nate has a LOT of fishing to do. He doesn't have time to hunt for his own spouse! And yeah, scarily close. Here's hoping I don't accidentally marry a vampire now like in my first attempt at this challenge. (That was a lot earlier on in the challenge though).

You are so right about the Twinbrook beach -- toxic spill, anyone? I also thought Jenni Jones-Brown always had girls. Good luck -- you're so close!

I always think of a nuclear wasteland of some kind. Perhaps a bit harsh, but it has that abandoned feel. In my games she's always had a mix of girls and boys, though I don't play in Twinbrook all that often and even when I do I'm really bad at keeping track of the townies.

Huh. I can't say I've ever seen the Jones-Brown baby be anything but female in my games. Kenyon looks to be a handsome fellow, at least from the side.

One less spouse prospect for Nathaniel though. :(

I had to resort to my second-choice spouse, but she's pretty much as good. Slightly strange nose, but at least I know she's a girl!

Of Dates and Deaths



Nathaniel: I hate school. And Mum. And Other Mum. And Dad. And having to get up in the morning. And homework. And...

Yeah, he's having a mood swing. Best we leave him to it. That's what I do to my sisters when they're having a mood swing. Except they're all adults and really should have grown out of it by now.

Nathaniel: And I hate watchers.

I hate you too.

Iris: Mature.

This coming from you, Iris.



Iris: I think you'll find I... mrrrghhhhfff!



Alys: I love you, Iris.

Iris: I love you too. Except when you try to suffocate me.

Alys: That's a fair qualification.



Iris: So, be my girlfriend?

The whole Alys figuring out Iris was cheating (finally) broke their relationship and they were just Romantic Interests.

Alys: I don't really want to just be your girlfriend. Aren't I worth more than that?

Iris: You are, but we have to jump through all the hoops or we can't get remarried. I suppose it's a good thing. The date phone calls are annoying enough without random strangers proposing to us.

I once got proposed to by a random stranger. He was drunk, and I turned him down.

Alys: Poor man.

Iris: Excuse me, this is our story, not yours. Go write your own story if you want one. I'm the most important person here.

Alys: Has she always been like this?

Normally worse.



Proposal #2.



Wedding #2.

Alys: I promise to love you, cherish you, and tolerate your constant rants about sharks.



Iris: I promise to regularly inform you of shark sightings in the area and to love you.



The happy couple are (once again), wife and wife. N'aww.



Laura: Auntie Alys, can I ask you something?

Alys: If it's not about your calculus homework, then yes.

Laura: How do you ask someone out?

Alys: Get your friend to do it. Or, failing that, hire one of those planes with a banner behind.



Nathaniel: I hate my family. I'm never going home again.

I know they're mad, but they're really not that awful.

Nathaniel: I hate them though.

Alys is making hamburgers for dinner.

Nathaniel: Cool!



Role-reversal when its the parents keeping the kids up late with loud music.



This picture is solely included because of Iris' eyebrows in it.

Iris: Eyebrow exercise is good for the soul.



Justin has started a blog, called In Kayes of Emergency. So far he's blogged about getting new friends. That isn't exciting, but it's the only screenshot I have of him this chapter.



Laura doesn't have the never nude trait. She's just doing this for the fun of it.

Laura: Got to look good for prom!

Yes, by bathing in your clothes. Obviously. Why didn't I think of that?

Laura: Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.



Nathaniel: I don't think I invited you as my date, Kenyon.

Laura: He's mine. Paws off.

Laura gets prom queen and a steady boyfriend out of Kenyon, Nathaniel gets into three fights.



It's time to chase that second-choice spouse. Not that I'm going to tell her she's the second choice.

Nathaniel: You like art? Let's go to the art gallery!



Girl: Who's your favourite painter? I like the Impressionist school, but I can't choose a favourite. Picasso was also pretty awesome.

Nathaniel: Aren't they all dead?



A tourist dies while they're on their date. That'd normally be a bit of a downer, witnessing someone pop their clogs, but Nathaniel isn't put off that easily.



Nathaniel: Yesterday I saw this awesome video on the internet. It's a cat riding a tortoise! The look on it's face is hilarious! Hang on, I'll show you it.



Girl: That's so cute!

Her face is so, so scary like that.

I promise you, she looks more normal sometimes... I think it's the nose. And the eyebrows don't help matters.

Nice to see you back on the thread :) So do I. She spends a lot of time talking to herself in front of really strange objects. A lot of the time it looks like she's trying to communicate with the shower. So far it's yet to talk back.

Typical...



Regardless of everyone else's views on Nate's slightly scary new girlfriend, he loves her and that's all that matters. Aww.

Iris: My grandchild is going to get that face. I can just tell.

Justin: And my grandchild.

Iris: They can't! She's Nathaniel's girlfriend, your son can't have her too!

Justin: ...

Nathaniel: Please ignore my mum. And my dad.

Alys: And me!

Nathaniel: Nah, you're good, Mum Two.



Iris: I carry you round for nine months, and you're ungrateful!

Alys: It was three days.

Iris: Oh yeah. Time flies when you're the size of a whale.

Alys: Not sure that's the phrase, but never mind. Good try.



Iris: A much better shot. You can't see her face in this.

Alys: Cruel.

Justin: Oh come on. It's like my ears. Best left unseen.

Iris: You said it.



Nathaniel: Will you be my girlfriend forever and ever? No, wait, until we get married?

Justin: That's a presumption.

Iris: Noooooooooo!

Nathaniel: Why can I hear you being annoying when we're across the other side of town from you all?

Why can't I seem to get a word in edgeways?



Laura: Don't mind me. Being sensible and building my skills.

What have you pranked?

Laura: Oh, fine. Tar all teens with the same brush. I've pranked nothing.

Alys: *screams*

Laura: Except the toilet.



Alys: So, do you have any idea what you'd like to do when you grow up?

Nathaniel: Leave this house?



Laura: Pleas give me some money towards my Escape Fund. Thank you all. I'm here every Tuesday.



Alys takes up a new hobby.



And promptly dies.

Alys: I told you exercise was bad for you.



Grim: Come along now. Nice and quick.



Justin: Oh no, the chef is gone. Someone else is going to have to learn how to cook now.



Laura: She was a person too! A lovely person and a great wife and an, erm, I don't know what she was to me really. Real friend's stepmum?

Justin: But she made amazing sushi. I'll miss that sushi.



RIP Alys. First death of Twinbrook. She was 106 when she went.



Iris: Nathaniel! Laura! Time to get up!

Nathaniel: Urrhhhhh.

Iris: I said, time to get up!

Nathaniel: No.



Laura: I can't believe school starts so early.

Nathaniel: It's not fair. Sleep is important, they told us in biology.

Iris: Serves you right.



Iris: So you see, cameras are good things because you can capture the real identities of the sharks.

Nathaniel: Mmm-hm.

I'll give you a clue. She's resident in Twinbrook at the start of the game, and she's named after a flower.

Yeah, now I'm certain I know Nate's girlfriend. She's honestly not that bad to me. Especially by Twinbrook standards.  ;)

I quite like her too. I think it's possibly just Iris that doesn't! I picked her partly because of her different genetics, now I'm just hoping Nate finishes his requirements soon enough that she's not an elder by the time he's done. Though there's always a Young Again potion in this dynasty.

Oh, I knew I knew that nose! Hahaha all right then. Hilarious as always. So close!

The same nose as all her family, but it's definitely unique.  And yeah, in my game Nate is a YA so it's really quite close to the end...

I feel stupid. I'm still not sure I've guessed who the girlfriend is- or rather, whether my guess is correct. But if it is who I think it is, she's drop-dead gorgeous for a Twinbrook Sim and her children tend to be cuter than her if the nose doesn't carry.
I'm not pedantic! I just believe in precision of language.
