    @MissSassy so do I! Love that song. Don’t worry, the fighting screenshot was taken on neighborhood brawl day. I just thought it was fitted because Juliet was about to grab Melanie so I put it in :D

    Aaw, lovely wedding - so pleased you didn't get the proposal rejection bug that's really, well, bugging me at the moment. Wowsa, Juliet is ripped! Glad to see she hasn't inherited Ramona's droopy b*oobs like Annabeth has :D
    And what a cutie Lucas is... I think you may have bred out the ugly there already!
    Looking forward to seeing what the gen 4 heir will look like :mrgreen:

    Lovely chapter :) Luna's expression is kinda funny but maybe it's because I can't stand her :D

    Annabeth is a bit cheeky with having a secret child with another man :# But that's totally MCCC. Do you have notifications on for babies born via MCCC?

    Melanie and Juliet marrying means there will be a baby soon. I wonder who will be the pregnant part and most importantly, how will the baby look like when it grows up? :p

    @afai1261 I was quite pleased with that pun :D I wonder what other Belle jokes I can make...

    @loubyloulou I’m sorry to hear you’re getting the proposal rejection bug! It sounds like a real pain. I’ve had rejected proposals in the past, but they usually accept second time asking. If they kept refusing I’d be tempted to cheat it will MCCC. I agree - I think Lucas may well turn out to be good looking. Unfortunately, he’s not in the right line, though :(

    @MissSassy I have birth and marriage notifications switched on for all sims in the world because it interests me to see what’s going on. I must have missed the notification about Annabeth’s second secret child, though. I think I’m going to make Juliet carry the child, since she is my “main sim” so to speak. I reaaaallllyyyyyy hope it gets Melanie’s face shape and head size.

    Same :D I've once tried to note down all the marriages, babies and deaths but I gave up eventually.

    I would pick Juliet, too, for the same reason.

    Oh and don't forget the chin :D

    Playing a little catch-up after a busy week. I LOVED 2.8, and the stalker sequence. Really put a smile on my face this morning.

    The wedding was beautiful! Perhaps Melanie’s mom feels she was pressured into it, after all the early rejections and stalking and all. That relationship will make for some interesting holiday dinners :)

    Thank you @chluke75 - I’m really glad I’m not the only one who found the stalker sequence funny. I had to laugh at how desperate Juliet was!

    You might be right about Luna... Alternatively, Maybe Melanie was rejecting Juliet because her mother disapproved of the Belle family and warned Melanie to stay away, OMG its an actual Romeo and Juliet story! But thankfully, without the double suicide.

    @MaggieMarley Oh gosh I hope not! If they start building fences around a pool, there might need to be an intervention. I think I remember reading Melanie and Juliet in high school. Wasn't that written by his brother, Gilbert Shakespeare?

    @chluke75 haha yup the little known Gilbert. William totally ripped off Melanie and Juliet :D

    The weird face sims make when someone tells them about a pregancy has annoyed me for ages now... I wish they would eventually fix that because it looks a lot like a bug.

    Celeste Vatore is still prettier than most of the premade offspring in my game :D But for a Vatore she is not pretty :/ Poor girl :D And the pure imagionation of Vlad GIVING birth just cracked me up :joy:

    This sounds so mean but on the first hospital screenshot, Juliet's head looks bigger than her baby belly :# Once seen, never unseen

    Aw, fourth generation baby :love: Alina is not that unknown here in Germany. I think I know one or two girls named like this :) Maybe it's from the City Living mixing "exotic" names into the game but this time it's a German one :D

    Oh no :( I can't see any change either... And the chin looks a lot like a big one, sorry :/

    Lucas looks quite normal. Let's hope puberty won't hit him too hard.

    Heey :) I've been lurking on this challenge since the start, and I just really love it. I'm living vicariously through you, as I'd never be able to deal with that much of ugly, lol. Alina is also an name of Slavic origin. It means bright or beautiful ;) So really, it's probably perfect for a Belle.

    Congrats on your 4th gen baby.
  • chluke75chluke75 Posts: 109 Member
    I chalk it up to a babies chubby cheeks :) Maybe you could find one of those chinless kids for Alina to marry for the next generation.

    Might be an unpopular opinion, but I have never considered either of the Vatores attractive, so it would make sense that any kids they had would be unattractive as well. They definitely wouldn't be my first choice to help breed out any ugly.

    @MissSassy haha you’re right about Juliet’s head! Although, to be fair, she had one of the smallest baby bumps I’ve seen on a sim. Now another generation has been cursed with BHS (bobble head syndrome).

    I’ve really enjoyed using the name randomizer and think I might do so more in future as I’m now giving sims names that I would never have thought of myself!

    Gah! I think you’re right about the chin but I’m hoping for a miracle here :D

    @PinkWorld thank you so much - it makes me happy to hear that you’re enjoying this challenge as it’s been really fun! You’re right, the meaning of Alina is perfect for this challenge.... Though, it may not fit its bearer in this case :D

    @chluke75 hehe yeah I’m sure those cheeks will shrink right down once she grows up. Or, y’know, her head might inflate to the size of a blimp like her mother’s and grandfather’s did! Oh please no we’re not going from huge chins to nonexistent chins :s funny thing is I’ve had attractive kids from Caleb in other saves so I don’t know what’s going on in this one. Maybe aggregative total chin size in a population is like the amount of energy in the universe: it can’t be increased or decreased. When you have a few sims with huge chins (cough *Ramona, Donald, Annabeth, Juliet* cough) you gotta have some with tiny chins to maintain universal balance.

    oh precious Alina. . . Melanie's genes might've betrayed us it seems. she's still a cute toddler though!

  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,202 Member
    @littlemissgogo I think they have. If Alina was going to be a clone of one of her mothers, why oh why wasn’t it Melanie? :D
  • MissSassyMissSassy Posts: 11,734 Member
    What would be if you reach generatin 10 and the heir still looks like a troll? :#

  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 3,202 Member
    @MissSassy I don’t want to consider that possibility
    I’ll probably fall into despair :D:D:D

    It would be frustrating 😅 Good luck this won’t happen :)

  • MissSassyMissSassy Posts: 11,734 Member
    Oh Carla is pretty :) but she will get the chin. 100% sure 🙈

    Mayor Whiskers ignored the mouse? Like my cats when they bring a mouse inside and then it runs around... I’ve mastered catching mice by now :D

    Alina is such a cute toddler :love: it’s a pity she didn’t get a present!

    Why do you think her chin is worse? I can’t see a difference (compared to memories and not actual pictures tho).

    Skye‘s head is even broader than Alina‘s :# poor girl
