    @GalacticGal My families are normally Spellcasters, so once they’re teenagers they can use the Repairio spell on broken appliances. Even then, spells can go wrong sometimes! Once they reach a certain Spellcaster rank, one of the perks you can get is that spells will always succeed. I do have a couple of Sims who are into handiness anyway, like my Sim Michelle Wilson.

    In the Year Twenty-Two Ninety-Nine, a NEW Erik Cantrell Save


    Saturday night was New Year's Eve. The family made their house ready as once again their father was preparing for his End-of-the-Year BLOW OUT BASH. Deep down inside, Erik was quite the party-animal as he proved in his college years. The family and a few assorted friends were all set to join them.
    VoRh0bO.jpg

    They had quite a turn out and only once did Erik regret not securing a keg for this event.
    pvEpJ3q.jpg

    There was dancing,
    2KIQ4WZ.jpg
    singing, and much merry-making as they said goodbye to the old year. Ready to ring in the New.

    The clean up took the family into the wee hours, but everyone had such a good time, it didn’t matter. They all got ready for church services the next morning and then Erik, Kayleigh and Jamison went off to Del Sol Valley.

    “Welcome to the very first Starlight Accolade Show of the New Year,” the Host, Tamabi 🐸🐸🐸🐸 said, opening the Show. “Can you even believe it’s 2299? I’m excited. I don’t know about any of you. But in 365 days or thereabouts, who keeps count? It will be the Turn of yet another Century. I hope all of your technology is set up for this switch over, or what a nightmare it will be. I heard a rumor they were only calibrated through 2299. Just sayin’.”
    rweSJx0.jpg
    “And let’s get things started, shall we? Roll out the red carpet, it’s time for the Starlight Accolades Show! First up, the All-Around Nice Sim Award.” Taking up the card, he quickly read it. “Thorne Bailey!”
    64IRIgw.jpg

    “For Best Acting, male, we have,” reading from the card, “None other than Jamison Cantrell! For his lead roll in Makin’ Moosic.” Like father like son, eh?”

    “Forgive me for a moment. To say I am beyond shocked would be a tremendous understatement.”
    ehM7sbX.jpg

    “Dad was right about it when he said this never gets old. And the trophy is still just as heavy.”
    K1OP5jp.jpg

    “Thank you so much for this incredible recognition. I am both honored and pleased. Guess I’m going to have to learn how to hang a shelf.”
    4Xfnyi1.jpg

    “And now we have the Best Acting, female, which goes to . . . Megumi Ito!”

    “I would like to thank everybody for this beautiful award. It means so very very much.”
    ZeYMrtf.jpg

    Dustin Broke earned the Underdog Award and Isao Yamashita won his for a Breakout Performance.
    pyFyi2h.jpg

    For bringing such aural beauty to the ears of Sims around the world . . . Erik Cantrell for his Down By the Old Well.”
    To You, O Lord
    svpppO7.jpg

    “I can’t believe this keeps happening. And, no I have no clue when it'll stop. I’m still writing music.”
    MOV22Bk.jpg

    “I love you all. Thank you for your undying, unstoppable support. I’ve said it before, I am nothing without you.”
    r0Cww4H.jpg

    “Borrowing my own words back, it is still just as heavy!”
    XfNBwVf.jpg

    They family opted for an early dinner after the Show. The night of partying had caught up to them. They managed to dine on homemade pizza, without setting the kitchen ablaze this time. “Happy New Year!” Peter said, raising his glass of cream soda.
    “Happy New Year,” the family chorused back.

    All for now. Thanks for reading! :)

    @GalacticGal
    Looks like everyone had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year!🙂 Jamison certainly takes after his dad with the awards! Congrats to father and son for winning their Accolades!😁

    @Ellupelluellu
    Shamelessly promote away! Your Stories are really good and you should proud🤗 Sims do take it awfully hard when the food stalls sell out. You'd think from their reaction they missed out on the last piece, ever. Cheer up simmies! There'll be more soon enough! Aww, Jennifer is so cute sleeping so peacefully❤️

    Back in San Myshuno with Anna and Ray...

    @GalacticGal
    P.1282 Lavender does look nice on Arwin. Careful there Awin, don’t drop her😭 Glad the kids are going to help their mother, with the chores. P.1283 Congrats Jamison! Another win, very nice! That guy on stage with Erik doesn’t look happy he won😳. Great update🙂
    @Ellupelluellu
    No need to apologize, your story is satisfying to read😁 I like how proud Marcus looks behind his food stand. Lmao Simeon, better luck next time. Jennifer🥰 I wanna have a nap that looks as peaceful as hers😆
    @DaniRose2143
    Anna in the big city😁 Nice to see these 2 again. Will be interesting to see how Anna is adjusting from the old world she left.

    Catalina moved into a bigger lot, with more space for Talladega to run around. But instead of running around there... he ran off to play somewhere else🥹 Ok Tal, you do you 2N9iP5o.png
    I'm going to get back to Julie's backstory soon, it's just I have to take screenshots for that and after a long day, trying to get the right shots is a struggle 😅

    @Smellincoffee aw feel sad for Melanie. At least Jerry was a better father.Lmaoo the bartenders head😂😳

    Yeaaaaaah...I'm not sure what causes it, but one of my mods makes teenagers (and then adults) lose first their face and then their entire heads. I've gotten weirdly used to it.

    A family meal!
    Benjamin went into the kitchen and cooked some Chicken Saltimbocca up with the help of his firstborn son, Princess Roddy:

    Afterwards, the princess set the table:

    Benjamin then brought the dish out. Once everyone was seated, the Furystrykar household tucked in:

    'This is delicious, dad! How did you know it was my favourite dish?' Hamish asked. 'It was your big brother's idea, my boy!' Benjamin replied, smiling. 'Oh wow, thank you, Roddy!' Hamish said. 'You are most welcome, little brother!' Princess Roddy replied, warmly. After everyone had finished, Benjamin and the princess put the plates in both dishwashers:

    Then they returned to the dining room table and chatted to the rest of the family. They were glad that the youngest of the Furystrykar siblings had survived his ordeal.

    Swings and more at the Brindleton Beach Huts!
    Princess Roddy and his aunt, Shelly Heart, headed to Brindleton Beach Huts, a new park that was built where Catscratch Cottage used to be. The first thing the princess did was go on the swings, with Shelly pushing him:

    Afterwards, they watched a bit of news. Nothing much of interest, just the usual chaos:

    Later, Shelly gave Princess Roddy a great, big, loving hug:

    Then she smiled sweetly, batted her eyelashes and made a very great, big kissy face at her adorable nephew, which made him giggle:
    cf3feef0f18cc90e950011f9cd87dbc4ef773e0e.png
    Shelly gave Princess Roddy a very great, big, loving smooch on his left cheek:

    His right cheek:

    And on his forehead:

    Shelly then gave the princess a very great, big, loving hug:

    Princess Roddy giggled. He was feeling happy! Shelly gently picked him up and gave him a very great, big, loving snuggle:

    And a very great, big, loving smooch on his cheek:
    f39d2f28ae615880db69b6645064df91d43866c0.png
    After chatting and playing, the princess received a great, big, loving and warm cuddle from his favourite aunt:

    After a water balloon fight, Shelly cooked some shrimp cocktail:

    Then she and her adorable nephew ate:

    6a282573683f266eaba36dc096a851551085bd17.png
    When they finished, they chatted some more. Then Princess Roddy and Shelly went back home to Dianthus Hall.

    Hamish faces his fears.
    Princess Roddy was in his bedroom. He had just finished watering his plants when he heard a knock at his door. 'Come in, little brother!' the princess called. Hamish entered. 'Hello Hamish, what do you want to talk to me about?' Princess Roddy asked. 'Can I ask a favour of you, big brother? Could you go with me to Plumbite Pier and ride the Haunted House ride?' Hamish asked. 'Are you sure, little brother?' Princess Roddy replied, surprised. 'I'm quite sure, Roddy. I want to put the accident behind me once and for all.' said a determined Hamish. 'Well, if that's what you want Hamish, then to Plumbite Pier we go!' the princess said, cheerfully. They set off for Copperdale.

    Soon, they arrived at Plumbite Pier and walked over to the haunted house ride. 'Are you ready, little brother?' Princess Roddy asked:
    cea4570eb2f021f1ed510ecc195299c1abfbe6dc.png
    'I would be lying if I said I wasn't dropping bricks, big brother.' Hamish replied, nervously:
    b8d98ba1bbd19b5c5fd8d7fcb0400fedcc532d75.png
    'Are you sure you still want to do this, Hamish?' the princess asked. 'I need to do this, for my own mental wellbeing.' Hamish replied. 'Ok, little brother. Let's enter the ride. And remember, I'll be right beside you.' Princess Roddy encouraged. The two brothers went into the 'haunted' house ride:
    0271de2a616805137a873500cfdc1702ee75df8d.png

    833e9f7fb8e2632e40259f27f77a8af77d6719bd.png
    The ride had been repaired and all the props had been reinforced. A large vampire cut out suddenly appeared. 'Yikes!' Hamish exclaimed. 'It's alright, Hamish. Just do what I do!' Princess Roddy said, comforting his little brother. Hamish watched as his big brother cleared his throat. 'Hello, Stuart Ashen here, and instead of reviewing the usual tat I get sent to the PO box, I'm going on a supposedly scary ride. Oooh, how exciting (he lied through his teeth)! We've already come across our first jump scare, and it's supposed to look like a vampire. From what I can see, it looks more like a patient that has had some bad dentistry done, and has also fallen into black, white and red paint. Am I frightened? Not in the slightest.' the princess said, doing his best Stuart Ashen impression. Hamish burst out laughing.

    'Your turn, Hamish!' Princess Roddy said. 'I'll give it a try, Roddy!' Hamish said. He took a deep breath. At that moment a ghost dropped down and floated in front of the two brothers. 'The next spook we've encountered is a ghost. It looks more like someone's badly stained curtains. Let's not think about what they're stained with. But what we can do instead is point and laugh at the ridiculous face that it has. I mean, come on, it's gurning, not looking all evil and terrifying!' said Hamish, continuing the impression of Stuart Ashen. Soon, both brothers were laughing and making fun of the various attempts at the jump scares in the style of the famous British YouTuber.

    The ride came to an end, and Princess Roddy and Hamish were still laughing as they came out:

    1f2de1035eb3dc6639cc69fd0190da302c17bfcd.png
    'Well, have you overcome your fear and put your ordeal behind you?' Princess Roddy asked, turning to his little brother. 'I certainly have, Roddy!' Hamish replied, smiling. 'Then well done, Hamish! I'm proud of you!' the princess cheerfully said, clapping. Soon the various other visitors to Plumbite Pier started clapping and cheering at Hamish's triumph. Hamish started to go shy. Princess Roddy smiled and knew what he needed to do. 'That's enough, I think me and my brother need some time alone.' he said to the crowd.

    A pier staff member nodded. 'Alright, let's give His Royal Majesty and his little brother some privacy!' they said to the crowd. The crowd understood this request and dispersed, not before showing a sign of respect to the young ruler. The princess turned to Hamish. 'Fishing?' he asked. 'Fishing.' his little brother replied. They went to a quiet area of Plumbite Cove and did some fishing:

    1344866646a4a036c6fc89948bfdad5595ce5d5d.png
    The two brothers chatted and caught a multitude of fish. After the princess and Hamish felt they had caught enough, they headed back home to Dianthus Hall and put their bounty in the fridge-freezer. Best of all though, Hamish felt like himself again!

    Galloping through the Gulch!

    @BlueSeaWaves @Ellupelluellu Thank you both❤️ The next chapter picks up with Anna, Ray, and Judith arriving back in Del Sol Valley and Anna’s first real experience with her new world. Anna will adapt just fine I think, but she’ll keep us entertained as she learns and grows.😁

    Now that I have Liberty’s wedding and honeymoon done I feel like a huge weight is off my shoulders. I didn’t realize how much pressure I was putting on myself to make those two events really special.🙂 With that done I had my best writing session in months before I left for work this morning.

    @Smellincoffee You got used to it, you’re very resilient. I wouldn’t be able to continue if that happened to me.
    @DreamPrincess Roddy and Benjamin are a great team. The chicken looks delicious. Lol this line,
    Nothing much of interest, just the usual chaos.
    Haha sounds about right. Glad Hamish got past his fear. Roddy’s a very supportive older sibling☺️
    @DaniRose2143 At the end, it all paid off. The chapters were written very well, and the screenshots that went along with them were perfect🙂
    @Ellupelluellu Thank you🙂 When he was brought into the household I didn’t expect much, but he became a lovable goof
    Really great screenshots! The angles make it look like scenes from a movie.

    @BlueSeaWaves,
    Thank you for your comment as always! From what I've read about Chicken Saltimbocca, it looks like a delicious dish!

    @DaniRose2143 Thank you. I hope it doesn't get tedious.

    @BlueSeaWaves. Thank you so much, glad you enjoyed it. As for the Host, that was Tamati 🐸🐸🐸🐸, an NPC. I have no idea what he thinks.

    @DreamPrincess Wonderful.
    I'm so very glad for Hamish. It takes temerity and strength to overcome such a fear. I'm also happy to have Princess Roddy's station clarified. He is the ruler, which makes the title of Your Majesty make better sense to me. Highness is generally used for the offspring of the monarch, so that's what had me stumped. I'm guessing his parents are Regents, then. Delightful storyline you have going all the same.

    What a lovely start! Sometimes I get a tad worn out decorating, even in the game. Taking your time doing it bit by bit is the way to go. Love what you've done so far.

    @GalacticGal,
    Thank you! I guess Princess Roddy's parents are Regents, but they don't have formal titles for themselves. Whenever the princess is performing his royal duties or going on royal visits, Benjamin and Shine act as his bodyguards.

    When Erik Cantrell was growing up, I had the original house already in my library, so after I decorated it for Christmas, I simply saved it to My Library and put the original, non-decorated house back in its place. Took the pain out of it entirely. I didn't do that with the i]Arbordale[/i], however. I should have. But I only decorated the outside and the tree.

    @Smellincoffee You got used to it, you’re very resilient. I wouldn’t be able to continue if that happened to me.

    I spent five years playing TS2 on a potato system, where everything happened in slow motion and Sims' hands look liked paws. I'm experienced. :D


    Gen 3: Isaac:

    When Isaac was awarded early graduation from high school, his grandmother Ann couldn’t have been happier or more proud. With multiple scholarships, he was destined for success. Isaac, who’d watched his father drudge for years in various jobs, had no interest in an academic grind or a formal career, though, and refused to go off to Brichester. Ann, unwilling to countenance a slacker, handed Isaac §5,000 and informed him that he was on his own.


    OZ4Q3jT.jpg

    Isaac was wholly undisturbed: he had a talent for painting, especially landscapes, and was happy to be free to explore his passion of entertaining others. He was a natural-born entertainer who loved to dance, tell jokes, and livestream. He’d already built an online following before being evicted, and once he had a proper streaming setup he’d be both following his passion and making bank. Ad revenue from earlier videos made it possible for Isaac to add a fridge to his bathroom, and with that done he was completely fixed for the necessities. His lot became known as a party pad, with a dedicated dance floor, stereo system, and bar. After a few months of sleeping in a tent, in full view of the stereo setup, Charlie commented to Isaac that he should maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe rethink his priorities.

    tJCuOZi.jpg
    Now it's a party.

    RKGrSl0.jpg


    FajsqZn.jpg
    For Isaac, though, those priorities were making people laugh and having a good time. At one especially intense party, only he and one woman were left on the floor – and she was soon his new roommate, replacing Charlie who went off to do her own thing for a bit. As Isaac’s reputation for hosting a legendary party grew, though, so to did his neighbors’ desire to get rid of him – and so, Isaac accepted his grandmother’s invitation to return to the family place in Sulani. His girlfriend (Moira?) had a bun in the oven, so it was high time to rejoin the family.

    te0IAbK.jpg

    Although Ann did not too much approve of Isaac’s chosen means of support – playing games? Videoing himself dancing and serving elaborate drinks? Who watched this stuff? – she could not deny that he was following his passion and seemed happy. In that, he was very different from Jerry, who was simply waiting until he could retire and fish all day. Isaac’s choice in partners was a little odd, as the woman was older than his father and aged up to elder the day she delivered little Hypatia (following our scientist naming theme, and in fact would die of old age before Ann (or I) memorized her name. Moira or something.

    HoL3RHq.jpg

    Isaac passed a happy young adulthood – gaming, telling jokes, playing the guitar, making videos on everything from fishing to dancing to mixing drinks, and accomplished rare the trifecta: not only did he win both the programming and gaming contests, but he nailed karaoke in the same night. Although after Ann died he’d planned to move to an apartment in the big city, in truth Sulani had grown on him: he still went to San Myshuno on a regular basis, but for the moment he was comfortable. Maybe when Hypatia turned into a teenager, he’d take her to the city or even to Del Sol.

    GuXo0q1.jpg
    This is literally all Jerry does. He fishes.


    TL9dzmo.jpg
    :( Bye, Ann.

    1dHhYZt.jpg
    Oh my god, Kaori, Ann just died. Do you really have to steal her spotlight?

    Isaac and his father quickly noticed that Hypatia was strongly like her great-grandmother, possessing an uncommon mind and a passion for the outdoors. Isaac frequently took her fishing and swimming, and was impressed by how quickly she absorbed the principles and strategy of chess: she managed to beat him in a match before her teen birthday. (Sidenote: this challenge has given me an entirely new appreciation for the Parenthood pack, which is making it possible for my heirs to not only not die, but to reach young adulthood with some skills and even bonus traits like Responsible.


    shnOPkE.jpg

    On a whim, I ‘cheated’ from the rules to tell Hypatia to join the scouts before returning to Isaac, with the aim of seeing how many badges a kid was capable of earning on their own. When Hypatia aged up to teen, I was astonished to see that she could claim every badge but Good Deeds. Granted, I “helped” by having Isaac influence her to use the chemistry set/drawing table, or invite her to go dancing or fishing, but still!

    Standings so far:
    Ann had earned 57K aspiration points by the time I switched over to Jerry
    Jerry had earned 38K aspiration points by the time I switched over to Isaac

    Thank you for those sweet and encouraging words.❤️ Talladega is a free spirit!🙂

    @DreamPrincess
    Princess Roddy being helpful and stylish at the same time. That was so sweet of him to help Hamish conquer his fears!😁

    @Ellupelluellu
    Henford looks gorgeous with that blanket of snow. The handful of decorations look lovely and I can imagine how wonderful it's all going to look when you're done!❤️

    @simgirl1010

    Winterfest arrived and before heading back to Julie, I celebrated with Catalina and Talladega. It was time for their nightly walk, but when Tal saw Father Winter his eyes grew big. "Fa-Fa-Father Winter!" he thought. 1a4XvO3.png
    "Lets go Tal" Cat tried to tell him. He didn't budge. He wanted his present, he's been mostly a good boy after all. 11-14-23-7-46-40-PM.png Father Winter didn't have a present for him. "Here you go, have this berry instead Tal" Talladega just looked at it. It wasn't remotely close to what he wanted. 11-16-23-7-21-06-PM.png Right after, Catalina was going to mount him to go on their walk. Father Winter stopped her just before she mounted to scare her😠 11-16-23-7-20-16-PM.png Ok Talladega, attack! Talladega attempted to bite him, "Thats for no present too!" he thought to himself. Catalina walked away, "I didn't see nothing" 11-16-23-7-22-16-PM.png Don't mess with a girl and her Stallion
