If we're not friends on the Sims 3 site, then you may not know but there has been a tragic twist to the Grim file that made things interesting to say the least.  It certainly made figuring out which storyline to go with easier.  I thank you all for all the commentary , support and advice.   Besides, Artie really loves the attention and when he's happy, I'm happier.





Apollo was the first to get purple eyes.  He got Adrianna's.   His son got Tama's eyes, his mother & Apollo's wife.  Angus married Cory who had a third set of purple eyes and she passed those on to Amon and I think for the first time since Ares we've managed to pass on an eye color from father to son.  Check out this little cutie.  You can also really see the hue difference going on here.


Prim: "There you go little guy.   As soon as you master this, you can wear big boy pants and then I'll never have to change another diaper."
Rica: "I don't know what you guys are complaining about.  Changing a diaper is not that hard for you guys."
Prim: "It's stinky and stuff."
Rica: "I just had to walk into the backyard and hose down a truly dirty diaper.  You can't tell me you guys don't have it easy.  I refuse to give ground on this subject. " -Hmphs- "Oh and good job Aker!"


Amon: "Who's daddy's big boy?"
Aker: "Whee."
Rica: "Psst.  He can't full on talk yet."
Amon: "I guess we'll just have to take care of that huh big man?"
Aker: -squeels- "Yesyesyes"
Rica: "He knows the important words though."

On the other side of town, there's an attack.....

... of sparkles.
Rica: "Whoo!  Look at how big you are."
Athena: "Wow this feels much better."
Rica: "Yes you can fully interact with everything and it's time for a makeover."
Athena: "Why?"
Rica: "Because I'm not a fan of your black butt.  Seems odd to me and I'd like to fix it ok."
Athena: "Alright."


The blue with with specks is supposed to represent the sky and the big stars are the "cool ones" as I'm told.  Yes another makeover by Jacob.


Amon: "Wahoo!"
Rica: "Hey I see a new gnome nooboo!"
Amon: "Hey.  Birthday party going on.  Pay attention woman."
Rica: "You're supposedly becoming an adult.  This is not big news my friend."
Amon: "Bring on the mid-life crises-
Rica: "Haha.. nope.  You got denied by the sparkles."
Amon: "Pfft.  It's because I really know my life is perfect."


Jena Jorgenson: "Oh what a world what a world."
Rica: "The fruit is right there!  right there!  You ate the cake instead!"


Reaper Allan: "Grr why does Artie have to be such a neat freak?  I have no dishes to wash and break the sink with!"
Rica: "Be gone with you pest or take someone else with you besides the gnomes!"


Amon: "And see just like that, you're trained."
Athena: "Huh."
Rica: "Why are you in your sleep clothes?"
Amon: "I don't know."
Rica: "At least you too look good together."


This picture was taken the day they revealed the carnival set at the sims 3 store.  Apparently Lunar Lakes vampires really want to see people in these clothes.   The two non vampires in this picture were vampires by morning, too.


Rica: "I don't know how they expect you to learn from these books since you can't talk yet but ok."
Aker: "You still in big trouble."
Rica: "What did I do?"
Aker: "Boss says so."
Rica: "She's sending messages through the recently born now.  That's just low.  Where's a bigglesworth when you need one."


Amon: "And Daddy is friends with the unicorns because they tell him special messages."
Aker: "Ooniecorns speshul."
Amon: "Yes the unicorns are special."


Amon: "And then when you get bigger you'll max out painting because the rest of us forgot."
Aker: "Pretty pictures!"
Amon: "Exactly."


Amon: "And when Daddy falls and gets a booboo.  Mommy makes it all better because she's the best doctor in all of Lunar Lakes."
Aker: "Mommy takes away Daddy's booboos!"
Amon: "I bet she'll take away yours too, lil buddy."


Amon: "When we get older, we get married to the women so that the family name is passed on."
Aker: "Mawiage Ew."
Amon: "Not really.  It has a lot of advantages that I can't tell you about until you're at least a Young Adult but you'll probably hear about them in high school."
Aker: "No mawwiage."
Amon: "Just wait.  You'll meet that special girl and then Bam.  Twitterpated.  There will be a ring on your finger before you know."


Rica: "Hey Governor.  I think you did something wrong there buddy."
Alegra: "You really think today is the day to compete internationally."
Amon: -rights himself- "Yes... let's go."
Rica: "Good luck!"

Alegra: -whine-
Amon: "I know.  I hate to do it but I promise I won't sleep until it's done and I can get you back.  I promise I will get you back."
Rica: "Me too.  It'll be really quick.  Just need one more horse and then we can buy you back."
Alegra: "Fine."


Aker: "No! Ride!"
Ares: "No it's time to get off."
Aker: "No!"
Ares: "Ugh.  C'mon kid."
Aker: "Nononononono"
Rica: "You know.. you were the first one to make that face so it's only fitting that you're the only one he acts this way with."


Prim: "There you go big boy.  Now the other foot."
Aker: "Mommy I did it!"
Prim: "Gosh you're so big.  Pretty soon you'll be able to chase down Daddy's horses."
Aker: "Yea!"


Amon: "Hey pretty girl.  Want to come move in with me?"
Sally Mustang Three: "Yes I would love to."
Amon: "Good now let's go get you a new home."
Sally Three: "Wait what?"
Rica: "We're selling you and getting back our other horse."
Sally Three: "What about me?"
Rica: "I happen to know some really good people that get horses from the eq center and having lived with us ups your price a bit so be happy!"
Sally Three: "This is not what I had planned at all."
Rica: "We know.  We're sorry but we gotta get her back."


Amon: "See I told you I would get you back."
Alegra: "And I'm glad you did. "
Rica: "And you're supermaxed.  Good job."


Prim: "Would it be totally unprofessional to do the happy dance in front of the hospital?"
Rica: "I don't know but that paparazzi is watching."
Prim: "Ok I'll wait til I get home."
Rica: "Congrats on making surgeon though.  That's a big deal."
Prim: "I know I'm so excited."
Rica: "And I got an achievement for it!"


Rica: "Bah.. not another one."
Aker: "This is Reka.  She's my best friend."
Rica: "Bah again. "
Artie: "I can't tell if I'm more disturbed by how close the doll's name is to yours or the fact that it's his name backwards."
Rica: "I'm with you on that one."


Amon: "Hey big guy.  You having a good time at Daddy's fundraiser?"
Aker: "Weird lady with fangs picked me up.  I no like that."
Amon: "I know but I got you now.  How about we put you in your crib so you can go to sleep.   I'll get everyone to leave soon ok?"
Aker: "O-Kay!"


Being a guy - Amon has all his fundraisers in swimwear.  But this vamp finally figured out that the plasma fruit on the table wasn't for the people who lived here.


Athena: "Hey would you look at that."
Rica: "Yep time for you to run weird like your parents."
Athena: "What's next?"
Rica: "More jumping to make you less tired."
Athena: "That makes no sense."
Rica: "It's the basis of the concept though."


Amon: "So just toss this up a little bit like this.. Hey where'd the juice go?"
Rica: "It's on the fast track to broken."
Amon: "Whoops."
Rica: "You know your son is a toddler.  He doesn't need drinks so why are you bothering?"
Amon: "Just decided that's what I wanted."
Rica: "Ok it helps me figure out another one of your rewards.  So we're good.  Time to wake up the house though.  Party Time!"


Aker: -blows as hard as he can-
Prim: "Good job buddy!"
First 5 Grim Men: "Wahoo!"


Aker: "Wheee!" 
Rica: "One last cute toddler photo before it's all gone."


Aker: "Tada!  Hey what's on my nose?"
Rica: "I don't see anything."
Aker: "Oh ok.. Hey I'm a big kid now!"
Rica: "Yep out of Boss's reach a little bit more now."
Prim: "You know the drill little man.  Cake, vanity, painting time."
Rica: -stomach lurches- "Oh man.  This is the first time I haven't had a spouse picked out in any way."
Artie: "Don't worry.  We'll figure it out somehow."


Aker: "I'm a pirate.  Argh!"
Rica: "Yep and Maccy gave the go ahead so we're good for a while."
Aker: "Awesome!"

Happy birthday Aker generation six and you are finally getting a painter what took you so long. Not that I can say anything my challange to myself was to complete a dynasty and not use any of the traditional dynasty skills. Pretty much managed it too no cooks,fishermen or painters. Had to use gardening and sculpting though.

Somewhere along the way I meant to have Ares or Apollo pick it up and forgot.  I may end up with a fisherman though as Gen 8.  Mainly because it's one of those skills that I can supermax in my sleep but it's all dependent on some other factors.

I love those purple/lilac eyes. I had no idea that gene could be so strong. My founder has them, and now I dare to entertain some hope that this colour will be passed through.
Mm, the boss passing a message to you through Aker was very creepy. Especially, because Aker, who didn't learn to talk yet, could deliver the words in all clarity.
Oh, Reka/Aker/Rica... I would have never picked up on that.
Congratulations to Amon on supermaxing and to Prim for reaching the top of her career. Oh, and three cheers for Aker's birthday too! :)

Aker's name was never supposed to be a reflection of mine.  However, when he got the doll a plan had formed and I needed to name it.  Without thinking at all I gave it the backwards version of his name.  My sister is the one who started to give me crap for the name being so close to mine.  That and she finds the dolls slightly creepy anyway.

As with all of these weird dolls, when their friend ages so do they. 


Aker: "Reka! It was your birthday, too?  But you look different now."
Reka: "That's because I'm more than just a doll now that you've proven our friendship to be true."
Aker: "That's so awesome!"
Reka: "There's only one thing.  You're the only one who can see me anymore."
Aker: "Why?"
Reka: "Because that is how it works.  Unless you have access to a special potion."
Aker: "Artie knows potions.  I bet he knows the one."
Reka: "Really?  You would think about making me real?"
Aker: "We're best friends!"


Aker: "Dad have you ever heard of imaginary friends?"
Amon: "Yes. I used to have one."
Aker: "Really? I've got one too."
Amon: "That's good but don't forget to make real friends."
Aker: "That's just it Dad.  I want to make her real."
Amon: "That's not possible."
Aker: "Reka told me how lean down here and I'll tell you."
-whispering-


Prim: "Take this."
Artie: "Hello to you too, Princess."
Prim: "Just do it.  Down the hatch let's go."
Artie: "What's it going to do to me?"
Prim: "Nothing it's just a pill."


Prim: "There ya go big guy.  All the way.  The whole thing.  Now swallow... swallow."
Artie: -gulp- "Boy you're pushy."


Artie: "Do you smell something?"
Prim: "Nope. I think I need to be somewhere else though."
Artie: -sniff, sniff, feels the burn- "MY BUTT.  MY BEAUTIFUL BUTT.  Why do you keep catching me on fire woman?"
Rica: -laughing so hard she can't breathe- "Not.. me"


Amon: "Good night Roamer.  I'll see you tomorrow."
Roamer: "Actually, it's time for us to say the final goodbye."
Amon: "What?"


Roamer: "I have done my part and it is time to leave.  I must rejoin my people in the wilds.  You have my daughter.  Keep her safe and she will keep your family safe. "
Amon: "I will never forget you, old friend."


Roamer: "Do not forget what I have said Amon of the Grims, Fifth of his clan. "
Amon: "I won't!"
Roamer: "See that you don't or we are all doomed."


Roamer: "Beware the doll."


Aker: "Look!  I found this is Grampa Angus' chest from when he was a kid."
Reka: "That's the potion!"
Aker: "You going to take it or just sniff it?"
Reka: "Here goes nothing.  Bottoms Up."


Reka: "No one ever mentioned all this!"
Aker: "You're the one who wanted this.  Suck it up.  I'm sure it'll be over in a second."
Rica: "Wait.. what's happening over here?"


Rica: "Oh my.. watcher... ARTIE!"
Aker: "Hey you never mentioned you were a girl!"
Reka: "Of course I'm a girl silly."
Artie: "What in your name is that, woman?"
Rica: "Aker made his doll real."
Artie: "You're supposed to be watching us."
Rica: "I was watching you!"
Artie: "Not an excuse!"
Rica: "What do I do?"
Artie: "We have to keep it now.  It's in the rules.  You.. go get new clothes."
Rica: "Ugh another pink wearer... let's go."




Despite the pink - I had a lot of fun making her clothes.  Just reminds me that the next one is a little girl and I can't wait.


Reka: "Why doesn't anyone ever mention that there's homework?"
Aker: "They don't tell you if you're born real either.. What's number 6?"
Reka: "I said 43.  It's always 43."
Rica: "Not true.  Work it out Aker.  You're a smart kid.  Then I'll let you paint."
Aker: "Awesome!"

Oh, bah! When you said this was the first generation you didn't have a spouse planned for and then you showed the picture of Aker and his doll, I was worried. Then you went ahead and did it! You made one of those creepy dolls real! Oh, Rica. Be careful. Don't you know? They're . . . EVIL! Wait, I guess that fits perfectly with your dynasty! Never mind!  ;D

I have a serious history with imaginary friends that didn't end well the first time around.  It goes back to my first decadynasty but then I guess if it's not obvious, the only people who don't have an agenda in the Grim file seems to be the poor oblivious townies.   Now that we're in the later generations there is going to be a lot going on because the forum isn't the only group of people interested in whether or not Artie will complete the challenge.

Also - it's hard to say if Reka is the doll he was talking about.  I'm not telling if she is though!

This is what it looks like when a whole group of people try to beat down a burglar.  Brave Apollo and Tama descendants Angus & Amon pull a toe tapping contest to decide who gets to take care of Mr. Rude Stickyfingers.


And Angus won!  Thanks to his celebrity he became friends with the guy right before kicking his butt.


Rica: "I like it.  Not sure why but I do."
Aker: "Thanks.  Can I go catch a bug now?"
Rica: "Sure why not.  But then it's back to painting."
Aker: "Ugh.  I like painting but that's all we do!"
Rica: "It'll get better. I promise.  If they hadn't revoked our traveling rites, we'd totally be there instead of here buddy.  Sorry."


Aker: "I'm just gonna..."
Rica: "My god that is the biggest water beetle I've ever seen in my life! Make sure it doesn't bite off your foot."


Rica: "You ok?"
Apollo: "Fine why?"
Rica: "I think you broke something.  Prim!"


Rica: "You guys are doing so good.  You've even both got A's in school without having to be tutored.  Color me impressed."
Aker: "I know exactly what color that is.  Get closer."
Rica: "It's an expression."
Reka: "That's a weird expression."
Rica: "No back talk or I take away playtime."


Reka: "So what does your mom do exactly as a doctor?"
Aker: "She makes it so hurt people aren't hurt anymore or sick people get better."
Reka: "That's not what I thought it would be."
Aker: "What else would a doctor be?"


Rica: "Hey!  Why are there hearts in the haystack!  There are children that live here!"


Apparently those children were distracted by making funny photos.  They are just so darned cute.


Rica: "How does it feel to be a leader of the free world?"
Amon: "Well the plan seems to be falling into place but otherwise, I'm just not sure."
Rica: "I think it hasn't hit you yet.  Just wait.  You'll like the idea of all that power eventually."


Yes it's another painting shot.  What do you think these two did while they waited for the next birthdays?  This shows how coordinated her facepaint and hair is to her outfit too.


Prim: "I swear on the watcher.  Who decided today should be a clinic and Simfest?"


Prim: -kicks- "And now how do you feel?"
Burning Vampire: "Like I need to go inside."
Prim: "Good because the smell is getting pretty bad.  I'll send you my bill."
Burning Vampire: "But it's a free clinic."
Prim: "I meant my dry cleaning bill.  You're flaking onto my uniform.  Now shoo."


A pirate and a fairy meet up at the park... No wait.  I'll quit while I'm ahead.


Aker: "Attention Attention! I have a royal proclamation!."
Rica: "This should be good."
Reka: "He can't hear you.  He's listening to a tabcast."
Rica: "Ahh. "


Amon: "C'mere my little crisped beauty."
Prim: "Amon.. I need to shower before the guests arrive."
Amon: "I know but I wanted to let you know that even though our son's birthday is after midnight.  I think you're the most beautiful woman in all the worlds."
Prim: "You know.. you're not exactly the ugly Grim yourself."


Reka: -makes a secret wish-
Artie: "Oh come on kids.  They're just cakes.  It's not like they'll catch on fire.  I made sure of that ages ago."
Aker: "I don't have a wish picked out."
Rica: "You'll think of something as soon as you get closer to the cake."


Rica: "Aww my fairy tried to become a pirate."
Reka: "Not funny."
Rica: "Says you."


Rica: "You know you get cuter with every birthday.  So much like your father and mother."
Aker: "Why thank you but please give me a different haircut."
Rica: "I think I have just the thing."
Aker: "Ladies first."
Rica: "Oh ok... Reka.. you're up!"

Artie: "Now that you're a teenager, doll or not, there are rules in this house.   You've now officially be warned.  Take this Moodlet Manager.  You have until your Young Adult birthday to make your ice sculptures not melt. "
Reka: "You don't scare me, Grim."
Artie: "Then you're stupider than you look."


Painting, Painting, Painting..


Rica: "I guess we know Aker isn't the milkman's."


Prim: "Ow.  That didn't hurt a second ago."
Rica: "It'll stop hurting in a second.  I promise."


Rica: "Hey .. I told you to go get dressed not retire."
Prim: "I was just getting it out of the way.  I'm tired of the clinics and golf.  I want to enjoy my time with my husband."
Rica: "I can respect that.."


Aker: "Gramps I think you pulled out the wrong sign."
Artie: "Nonsense.  This is the retirement sign."
Aker: "I'm not sure I understand."
Rica: "I don't think anyone does."




Rica: "Huh.. I think I recognize that."
Aker: "It's a father and son fishing by a waterfall."
Rica: "Huh."


Reka: "Ha I win!"


Aker: "Barely!"


Reka: "Aker.. We're best friends, right?"
Aker: "Of course."
Reka: "We do everything together, right?"
Aker: "Usually. Why?"
Reka: "Then you're going to take me to the Prom right?"
Aker: "Sure! We'll have a great time."
Reka: "Good."
Rica: "Hrm"


Rica: "Hey check you out.  What's that picture?"
Prim: "It's my self portrait.  Not bad huh?"
Rica: "Not bad at all.  You want to put this up for your memorial."
Prim: "Yes I think that would be a great idea."


Rica: "Hey you're not horrible.. I think it works."
Amon: "Prim agrees."
Rica: "You been bulking up lately?"
Amon: "Huh? No?"
Rica: "Ok.


Rica: "Ok it's creepy how you two do so much together. "
Aker: "What's wrong Rica?"
Rica: "You both just supermaxed at the same second!"
Aker: "Oh.  I don't see a problem with it."
Reka: -internalizing-
Rica: -whistles- "Hey you.  dollface - time to start sculpting."
Reka: "Huh?"
Rica: "You.. back of property with a big block of clay.  Let's go."

A day or two later...


Reka: "Like my dress?  I had it made for you."
Aker: "It matches my tux!"
Reka: "Then you like it?"
Aker: "I love it. "
Rica: "You two ready?  I'd like to get Aker to the school still in his tux."
Reka: "Right.. let's go handsome."


Rica: "Woot! Success.  Have a good time guys."
Reka/Aker: "We will!"


Apparently they had a great time and came out a couple by the end of the night.


New swimsuit for Amon to show his new muscles.  I have no idea where they came from but it's kind of sexy in a way.


Ares and Artie look kind of sad next to the younger Grim.   I hate what old age has done my little red men.

The Long Awaited Museum Update!



My museum has been in plain site since the beginning.  Spanning the back of the property it goes from one end to the other.   Each room is decorated in the colors of the immortal and their spouse.   Generation 6's room is decorated in his color and his girlfriend's color.   Each room has 8 sides - 1 for the window to see in, 1 for extras and 6 for their lifestage pieces.


Overhead shot of Artie's room.  He has the most room so all the plasma fruit nectar is in here where no one can get it.


Artie never did get a shot in the photo booth with Christen which saddened me but he does have one of himself in his caveman suit.



Ares' Museum Room.   On his extras wall I keep the three certificates of partnership for each of his three visas. 



Apollo's Room - You can see his rewards for being in Shop Club afterschool.  It kept him busy while we did the waiting to age thing so he and Tama could be together again.



Angus' Museum Room - We put one of those Ivy things behind his head for each picture since he was my gardening Sim.  He was also the only one to go to scouts.  The picture of him in a swing was taken by Tama and I loved it so much we kept it here.



Amon's Museum Room - Not complete yet but only one more birthday to go.  Amon was the only Sim to do ballet in school.  He also keeps most of the riding trophies from his 1st place wins here.



Aker's Museum Room - Just the beginning and for some reason there are extra skill certificates on the wall that aren't there now.  The picture you see on this wall was one taken by Prim while Aker learned to talk but the photo said Talking Bird so I knew I couldn't use it for an official picture.  I kept it anyway.

And that's it for the tour.   Towards the end of the dynasty I will take pictures from ground level so you can see every picture, sculpture and portait - if you guys want. 

Coming soon - Romance, Rebuilding and another Retirement.
Next Chapter

Thanks!  I thought I had taken more pictures but apparently I didn't take the ground level ones that showed three stages at a time as I had originally thought I did.  Things are crazy in the home life - sister in surgery so I'm being loving/doting auntie - so that means sometimes updating is easier done than playing.  Plus I had over 300 pictures to go through when I woke up this morning that you guys hadn't seen yet.
