    I'm going to leave a few comments before this update, but I am not going to get to every post from the past two weeks. Hopefully i won't miss any questions y'all have asked me.

    Oh, and to any who were wondering... Rinaldo and his alien wife Valad have a baby girl! She was born between rotations so I'm going to change her name when she ages up to toddler. I'm leaning towards Zelda or Xena. Genetically she's going to be a combination of Rinaldo and what her mother looked like as a human, but I did go in and change all of Valad's outfits so she looks like an alien all the time. We'll just say that Zelda/Xena is like Finnian and Gillian - half alien but you can't tell by looking at them. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the family for right now because they can't stay in the retirement village... but that's a problem for the next rotation.

    @Metior_Ice Sorry you lost your save and all the work you'd put in! But it sounds like you got right to work creating the new one. Look forward to hearing how this one goes.

    And that's about it! No amorous alien adventures this time! Hope you all have a fantastic week!

    That Alien screenshot in the bed was hilarious. Loved the Elders in Space. It is nice to take a brake.

    I'm actually making an update now. It'll be a teaser of sorts.

    The Elemental Twins: Dylan and Zephyr

    The Restored World Saga: Restoring Sulani Arc

    I admit, Dylan and Zephyr are still my favorite household to play with.

    Dylan and Zephyr: Rebuilding the Elemental Temple: Raising Money with Odd Jobs

    To start things off, I had to build up Dylan and Zephyr's friendship so they were best friends again. They are an inseparable duo after all.

    Dylan Zalrian
    Dylan raising money for the Elemental Temple that was destroyed. He attracted the attention of a ton of ladies. He does know how to shred the guitar.

    50557488308_5e17f3045c_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101202144 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Dylan's performance was very energizing.

    50557488423_7f8c124c97_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102001413 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Gone are the days Townies make messes. Dylan is now a piper and can play a song that will make sims clean up the books they leave out.

    50558352187_b17385b798_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102022921 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Dylan's music has been helpful, and he's also able to gain funds through investment. However, his first painting in this new save was a masterpiece worth over 11,000 Simoleans. He's definitely the one funding the rebuilding efforts.

    50558352072_91a40b64a0_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102023113 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr Zalrian
    He didn't raise much money, but he would put bartending guy to shame.

    After some swimming, Zephyr practices his craft thinking of tips and raising money.

    50558228451_70f483e9cd_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101201923 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr practices his craft, and the ice shaking is like music to his ears.

    50558352487_551080dedb_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101201906 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr performs his first trick without failure. He's a master behind the bar.

    50557488708_faf8eff896_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101202505 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    The moment he learns a new trick, Zephyr performs perfectly.

    50557488693_89a1edf01b_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101203310 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr decides to start tending the bar while practicing tricks, and he also gets the attention of the Sulani Ladies.

    50557488543_db8826eade_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102000320 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Unfortunately, his brother's performance draws the attention away from his performance.

    50558352302_b1c5c3b82a_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102000326 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Immediately after learning the new trick, Zephyr nails the stacking.

    50557488458_815ca85c0b_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102001009 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zeph still tosses the shaker like an expert. His first trick still looks awesome.

    50558228141_e82fff1048_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102001059 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Naturally, Zeph had to practice this trick when he learned it in the space for the fire element. He nailed it on his first try.

    50558228021_39d2329be3_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102021304 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Supportive Parents

    Merman Don Lothario
    Nalani's thoughts: "Flower Emojis, who gave this guy mermadic kelp? I'm a be like a flying fish and flap my fins out of here."

    50558228281_bbcba1b5e5_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101220246 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Silence and Confusion...

    50558352417_0713bcc9d2_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204406 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Sitting awkwardly in silence... Sultry as the chieftan's daughter Lia Hauta returns. Alika the self proclaimed ambassador of Sulani smiles. He knows what is coming.

    50558352147_7f9f55e85d_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204416 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Lia sits in the farthest chair from Don and pulls out a book.

    Lia reads out-loud: "And on that dark and stormy night, there be sea monsters..."

    Alika nods knowingly. Don looks down sad and confused.

    50558352412_e2a3bf2b91_k.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204444 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Also Don...

    Vlad's Sulani Welcome Wagon.
    Vlad: "Where's my pants?"

    Poor Nalani
    Her connection was denied by Rylan.

    50558228511_674ffaa25d_c.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101201050 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Trying to scam a genius...
    Again, she's a Paragon of all things...

    50557488388_bdc13cd1ff_k.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102004126 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr did find a few new collectables.

    50558228046_ca9e75632b_k.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201102004151 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Reef in perfect form.

    Rylan the Conservationist/ Marine Biologist
    He's both helpful and likes to brake the rules. He's also the one that got glitched at work and broke the save on his birthday...

    Happy Halloween from the Vatore siblings!

    FO7uLKG.png

    ...I'm a bit late, haha. Going to be quieter than usual this month while I'm NaNoing!

    @sunblond Kaden's job sounds pretty busy so far! But yeah, contentious, so it'll be interesting seeing how it impacts his relationship with his family.

    And yeah, one of the GT ones broke as well, unfortunately. Hopefully that'll be fixed in the next patch!

    Man, Austin sounds like he's having a rough time romantically! Glad it's looking up for him, at least!

    @DoodlyDoofus okay I'm absolutely not going to like I was cheering for Grim Jr. ...of course, now he's Emperor, so goodbye galaxy, I guess!

    @AlwaysAsking you know what Joey's just living his best life and I'm here for it. Okay, yeah, or not, poor Xavier... or that works! Wow, the drama XD

    And yeah, Sims will sometimes pick up the weirdest hobbies! Caleb is actually like... level 4 in programming, completely autonomously! (And Johnny's almost maxed guitar, although in fairness he does start with one in his house!)

    @Duvelina poor Hugo. I'm glad he was able to confide in Clara and get some clarity on the whole situation!

    @Koteyka ooh, gotcha XD In that case, best of luck with the illustrating! And heh, I swear some Sims have invisible traits sometimes. Like they don't officially have it but their actions say otherwise!

    Oh my, Victoria definitely looks a bit stunned! Ohh goodness the kids are chaotic XD;; Man, the financial situation sounds pretty rough :-\ Aww, the wonky tree topper, hee. ...well that's an ominous line XD;; Ohh jeez, Forgotten Hollow isn't the place for li'l tots! D: CALEB. Man, thank god he was there to help Ianto! I don't know your Caleb's backstory but I get the feeling he really needs a hug D:

    @Becka28 aww man, poor Quin! :( Glad Rohan took it well, but really, it's not the end of the world. Quin can just... take a semester off and re-evaluate, maybe? Jeez, Morgyn, take a chill pill XD;; Oh my, that 'celebrity worship'! XD

    @Daephene I use Photojoiner in making collage :)https://www.photojoiner.net/ That way, I won't have to upload several photos. I select only the best ones to be included.
    Reality Kings Episode 14

    To his delight, Manuel was invited by Deauxma (now a Seasoned Thespian but only a "Notable Newcomer") to Plumbob Pictures. He was introduced to Nina, a Guest Star and another "Notable Newcomer" and the production team. He's really determined to become an actor when he ages up into young adult.
    001.jpg

    For the first time, Dane was able to change the weather successfully. He made the rain stop!
    002.jpg

    Another first time for him, he was able to explore the space and found a dead whale.
    003.jpg

    Now that Travis and Liberty have moved out of their household, Summer occupied the bedroom where Liberty formerly slept. When Manuel next visited her, she invited him to stay the night.
    010.png

    They slept together without "messing around," and they had breakfast together the next morning.
    004.jpg

    Manuel played basketball with Mick, Dane, Bruce, and Erik at Skye Fitness.
    009.png
    005.jpg

    Then they worked out together.
    006.jpg

    Of course, they showered afterwards.
    007.jpg

    Dane and Bruce went home already, so it was only Manuel, Mick, and Erik who took yoga class after the gym session.

    My heir and his girlfriend ended up getting married shortly before he graduated university. Franklin's a doctor. Mieru works as a caterer now, but once they have enough money, she plans on becoming a housewife while continuing her studies in magic.

    3vLNBkp.png
    Despite me removing the On a Ley Line lot trait from their apartment, the couple went and had twin boys. Their names are Yukio and Yukito. When I named them, I was expecting them to look more Mt. Komorebian, like their mother. But no, they got all their physical traits from their father. Which makes sense I guess, given they're half-Windenburger.

    Yukio is active, and I'm planning on making him a professional snowboarder when he's older. Yukito is more calm and gentle, so I see him being a bookworm and a doctor or actor.

    UFVTiQj.png
    And this is little Homura. Where her brothers were fussy, she's relatively calm. But I suspect she'll be hyper and perky when she gets older. I'm picturing her as a saleryperson and rock climber.

    They moved into a home in Evergreen Harbor, but they still visit their family. Franklin's parents wire them money occasionally, and they have rooms available whenever they visit Brindleton Bay. Mieru's sister sees them less often, but she's planning on visiting the family for a few days to help take care of the newborn. Franklin's sister, nephews and brother-in-law talk to the family online or over the phone, but since neither family has a lot of money at the moment, they're probably not going to see each other until the Summer, when they visit the grandparents.

    Took a few days’ break, decided to get back to Sims 4...

    Caroline Masterson *finally* won a Starlight Accolade! She kept getting notifications that her agency was sure she’d be nominated for one and... zip. So, I looked on google, and apparently you can just turn up at Studio PBP at the appropriate time (6pm Sunday) and see if you get an award. She got lucky! She also made a few celebrity friends, which is pretty cool.

    The Elemental Twins: Dylan and Zephyr

    The Restored World Saga: Restoring Sulani Arc

    Servos from Space
    Zephyr: "Did you hear the story about Servos from Space?"

    Dylan: "I've never heard that story."

    50562691637_44c69cd842_z.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101195536 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr: "Well, it starts with a planet full of Aliens. They had technology comparable to our power over nature."

    Dylan: "Interesting. So, they can make volcanoes erupt, conjure monsoons, and increase the vitality of plant life with technology."

    Zephyr: "Hold on, I'm just getting to the good parts."

    50562558991_c761cb4f97_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101195554 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr Continued: "The aliens didn't quite master the power over the forces of nature, and their planet didn't have oceans. However, they mastered the creation of artificial life with machines that could think."

    Dylan nodded and listened.

    Zephyr: "Eventually, the robots turned on their creators, but they didn't destroy them. Instead, they made it their mission to turn their creators into machines like them. These robots developed the technology to download their creators minds into metal bodies. Those that didn't want to be turned into machines fled Planet Servo."

    50562691617_abd20ed2c8_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101195604 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr added: "The Servos wouldn't leave their creators alone. Like vampires, they hunted them, and as you know, even the immortals can't escape death. Like how we follow a cycle of rebirth and vampires die when exposed to sunlight, the servos rusted. The mortals escaped, but the generations forgot the ruins of their home world. The Servos eventually gave up their pursuit and program errors led to critical errors.

    Zephyr: "Some say that the Fruit Bears from space created the Servos to escape the pursuit of Fruit Flies that relentlessly hunted them. The reason sims have childhood phases to dress as Fruit Bears is because a ghost signal from the Fruit Bears was there alternative solution to escaping the Fruit Flies. I should know, I was a victim of the ghost signal."

    50562691617_abd20ed2c8_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101195604 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    The Story of the Frog and the Vampire
    Dylan: "Pretty good thriller. I've got a story to tell too..."

    Several minutes later.

    Dylan: "And that's when the vampire swooped in as a bat. But, the people suspected the bat was a vampire. It wasn't long before he found himself a pet in a cage to the very humans he hunted in the night."

    Zephyr: "That's outrageous. No one suspects the bat to be a vampire."

    50561817133_79008915b0_z.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101195734 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Dylan: "But, I didn't even get to the best part. A Hypno Frog was controlling the family and planned the whole thing. After it succeeded, it hopped out of the house and to freedom. He could be chilling at the beach right now."

    50561815878_66e8fb53a7_z.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101200541 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Making Sand Castles
    50562691582_f3e2360db0_z.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101200954 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Dylan made the Sea Turtle and Zephyr made the Cow Plant. The sculptures are surprisingly fitting for their unique traits. Dylan the Creative inspired by the Ocean and Zephyr the genius that would actually be interested in something as alien as a Cow Plant.

    50561815868_a2b9a74ff8_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101201016 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Gossip about other Ocean Immortals
    Zephyr: "I saw Ukupanipo reaching for a shell when a hermit crab emerged and pinched his finger."

    50562558871_209bcf7720_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101202956 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr: "He took the shell and ate the crab on the spot. He is a shark god after all."

    50562557716_6aa3082d9b_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101203013 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Cleaning Up Mua Pel'am
    Dylan, the Elemental of the Ocean, worked on cleaning up the sea.

    50562691487_8ea51fdb9d_c.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101203507 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zephyr, the Elemental of the Sky, worked on cleaning up the land. Because the Elemental of the Volcano was a Toddler and the Elemental of the Islands wasn't born yet, he was the next best thing even if command of the weather, wind, and forces of the sky was his strength.

    Alika's wife Mele approached Zephyr while he was trying to tame the volcano. His efforts didn't quite work (This sulfur-like stuff must be bugged because after one successful interaction my sim became unable to approach the mess and interact with it in any way. The same thing happened with beach debris).

    As soon as Mele started expressing how upset she was over not buying something new and not having anything in Calum's fridge to eat, Zephyr ran back to the beach to finish planting the crops needed to make island recipes. Ain't no elementals have time for that.

    Zephyr and Dylan weren't just rebuilding the Elemental Temple they call home and maintain, they were restoring the island to a thriving state and making the island environmentally friendly.

    The Celebrities are Reborn
    With a fresh save, all the celebrities are back.

    50562691432_752ce30c17_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204551 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zeph attempted a friendly introduction with Judith Ward and was declined.

    50562691427_e9a851cf91_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204810 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Duane Kealoha (I updated the family with my version where he's actually the son of Makoa) didn't like that old gangster movie.

    50562691397_90bbd6e2a3_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204816 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Duane asked Judith for a hug.

    50561816898_938cf0de6c_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204829 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    She accepted the request, and immediately after, Duane moved on to thinking about Dancing on the upstairs dance floor. I know he's a teen, but he's also the Life Guard.

    50561816863_18596175e4_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204857 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    Zeph was not happy about this, so naturally, he caused a volcanic eruption and conjured a thunderstorm.

    50562691357_351286392f_h.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204909 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    He even channeled the Island Spirits to call forth an eruption.

    50562690302_48b0e43eec_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101204937 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    With the raging storm, the beach visitors started leave. This might've been a good thing considering the distracted lifeguard.

    50561816833_4ff14ac788_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101205004 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    And yet, Judith appeared unphased by the chaotic forces of nature. It was as if her status of being a global superstar would protect her from harm. She eventually finished her movie and left unscathed.

    As Zephyr finally went home, Rylan was enjoying the stormy weather.

    50561815828_5ba5d786c6_b.jpgThe Sims™ 4_20201101205336 by Metior Ice, on Flickr

    When Zephyr returned home, Dylan stepped in to restore balance and calm the storm. The forecast was for clear skies after all.

    After a busy couple of days, the twins went to sleep in the ocean. Their rebuilding efforts have only begun and the room for the water element hadn't been built. That would be their main living and sleeping space.

    Merman Don
    Swimming is a form of exercise, so I've noticed that he shows up at the beach a lot.

    I just started a new save = Magnolia May, she is the daughter of 2 world famous country artists, yet she has decided to go out on her own as an artist of painted pictures. She loves the country music scene and one day wants to try her hand at it, but for now painting is her passion.

    Sorry no screen shots - only had an hour to play so wanted to get the save started.

    I'm so behind on comments, but I actually will catch up. :D

    @BlueSeaWave
    (p785) Archie's so mischievous. It's kind of cute. I hope he's able to keep his pranks fun and light hearted and that he doesn't ever actually end up hurting someone.

    I laughed at Claudio hiding in the kitchen in the dark. Too bad he discovered her secret without her discovering him. But planning to get married without telling your kids first is a bit much.

    Congrats to Owen and Sylvia. I'm glad that Owen seems to be getting things together. I really need to catch up on your posts!

    @ryttu3k (p785) Tira and Luca are adorable. I'm glad the family was able to spend sometime with Lilith. I always love how you decorate your sims' homes!

    @Becka28 (p786) So sorry your computer died! I hope you're able to get things fixed. (p788) Glad you were able to get a new laptop. Your made-over Travis Scott is attractive! I wish Summer good luck with all of her flirting.

    @sarabeth2984
    (p786) I loved Sims 3 during its time, but I can't go back to the pudding faces! I hope you're enjoying it.

    The look Lisette is giving her father in that screencap is the best. Does Hillary know Griffin is a vampire and like 300 years old? Maybe he mansplains because he's 300-ish and she's 20-ish? I don't know, but he has some gall.

    I'm curious to see what the castle looks like from the outside. I have my sims on a 64x64 lot, which can be difficult to play at times, but it's okay because I crammed all of the important rooms together.

    @RedDestiny82 (p78?) I'm enjoying your posts about Adeline.
    He had to hold back the urge to say she wouldn't hear complaints about that from him....there is a song for that you know.
    That made me laugh.

    @Lyrie (p788) Nick needs to control his texting urges a bit better when his girlfriend is at work. Haha. Could GD's gloomy mood relate at all to curiosity about his missing bio father? Regardless, I like how Nick is so sweet to him.

    Beautiful final shot of the sunset and the snow.

    @Alwaysasking
    (p790) I love how well Don 2 is working out compared to Don 1. They're the same sim in some ways, but they're not the same all - if that makes any sense. But Joey is too popular with everyone.

    I laughed at Don giving romantic advice to a dolphin.

    (p794) Nalani's house is great. I actually can't believe it's not in Sulani. How many children does Nalani have? 2? 5? Out of curiosity, what made you want to move her to Willow Creek?

    The Sulani paintings and photographs you added as décor are beautiful! I'm really impressed. What a great idea. I see your posts and always get inspired to build for the gallery, but I'm addicted to CC so I don't know if I will have any success at doing it well or properly.
    “Yes,” Joey answered. “You said you’d take me anywhere I wanted to go today, no strings attached. I want to go on my date with Xavier. So thanks for the ride. You can go now.”
    Yikes. :(

    (p797) I'm glad things ended up okay for them, but the cut with all of Xavier's sad pictures behind it made me feel for him until I saw that he got his own Joey. Your posts are so enjoyable! So many great screenshots too.
    And poor Deli! So frustrating too. Poor girl, even the island spirits couldn't help. She couldn't tell what heritage she was being chastised for ignoring! That's the thing about soothsayers altogether. You can take their "advise" any way you want to take it. And if you don't know what you want, well.... that's not very helpful.

    And I actually feel sorry for Asher, although he reminds me of nearly every man I've ever known in my life No idea how to help in any emotional crisis. Car trouble? No problem. Far reaching life choices, hmmmm, not so much
    Thanks for the comments. I was actually incredibly annoyed with the island spirits, because it seemed like they were unnecessarily cruel to her.

    As for Asher, I don't know. He's gotten better and he made some autonomous actions that showed awareness of an issue and he talked to her, but he didn't even give his daughter a hug.

    @Koteyka
    (p789) Oh~ I know nothing much about Harry Potter, but it's so interesting that Harry is the neighbor. But I don't think in the canon version he was raised by Remus and/or Sirius, so this should be a nice change. I'm curious to see how he's going to get along with Rhi and Ianto. All of the children were so cute bundled up in their winter gear, but it's kind of sad too, as before Ianto didn't need to bundle up when he went outside.
    Oh come on, how hard could it be to look after a two year old…
    Famous last words, I think.

    (p791) My intuition was right about the cold. Poor Ianto doesn't like it. :(

    I love their rooms. The dinosaur wallpaper is perfect for Ianto.

    (p795) Harry is adorable with his fathers, and I love how he has the Pufferhead bedroom set. I wonder about his parents and their dual identities, though. Your posts always give so much to think about and look forward to. Like the encounter with Caleb.

    (p797) I hate to see Rhi and Ianto fighting, even if he is trying to look out for her.
    Also I wanna post every day now waaaaaa
    How long does it take you to put together a post if you don't mind answering? I feel like it must take hours and hours with all of the planning, the posing, and the writing. It's impressive.
    They're a bit more alpha then I usually make my toddlers because the author hates maxismatch and I was trying to lure her into playing the sims 4 with those pics 
    Did you succeed? The toddlers are adorable.

    And thanks for your comment about my previous post.

    Fier Legacy - Picture Dump :blush::)
    Intro & Past Posts in Spoiler

    INTRO
    CFRyVIZ.jpg
    The Fiers are a vampire family led by an arrogant and socially awkward megalomaniac named Asher who, among other things, hopes to have 100 children. As of now, he's had 16. The youngest five recently became young adults and are discovering the perks of university, so Asher's ready to move on from the life he's built with them in Sulani. Even though everyone is into pursuing an eco lifestyle and protecting the environment and even though Asher employed some draconian conservation policies while working as a top-level conservationist, he's done with that kind of tiny living stuff and is having a (gaudy flamboyant) palace built that may cost more than one million simoleons. When it's complete, he intends to move and raise the next generation of his children there. But there's no rush as he's immortal.

    It was time for change. After raising two generations of children in Sunali, the Fiers were returning to San Myshuno. The youngest Fiers, who were no longer all teenagers, would soon be graduating from college, and moving out and on with their lives. But, before separating, the family wanted to spend a bit more time together in the city.

    Asher's 13th child, Delmarya Fier (Deli), wasn't the oldest of his children still living at home, but overachiever that she was, she would be the first to graduate. Would she also be the first to move out? No, not if her father had anything to do with it. His plan was to help her develop skills as a vampire, while she commuted (quite far) to Sulani a few times a week for work.

    Deli wasn't sure if her plans would align with his, because maybe what she really wanted was to become a regular human—but that was a terrifying thought... She was almost ready? willing? to try becoming a "master" vampire first. Everyone knew that Deli loved the sun as she sometimes went to extreme lengths to bask in it, but, as a vampire, she also loved being out when the moon was at its highest point and the world was asleep. So much of her youth had been spent enjoying the tranquility of Sulani's beaches at night. While being human meant being able to fully enjoy the sun, it also probably meant giving up her peaceful and productive nights. Regardless, she promised herself that she'd make some sort of change after she graduated and she'd be graduating soon.

    wqUrvdy.jpg
    KRF0U6z.jpg

    At any rate, the Fiers said goodbye to their home in Sulani (for now at least), but they didn't pack everything in case they wished to return.
    FFcuILZ.jpg

    Many parents look forward to downsizing as their children prepare to move out, but of course not Asher. Asher wanted a home so large and palatial that he had to get a special zoning permit mod from the city for his residence because apparently people aren't supposed to build homes on this lot.

    It wasn't completely finished, but it was ready to live in. Asher and Adelise figured they'd sort the front garden next spring and continue modeling the inside as needed.

    Since I have had to revise my original plans due to bugs (I had to disable the Enviromental Footprint) I am revising my story somewhat.
    I also have, thanks to the November update and the new Expansion planned the following:

    The Greene household will continue to be environmentally conscious of course, but since it won't impact the game too hard... they will get a vacation home.
    Basically as soon as the update hits I will build a Rental on Key Point in Sulani that they will have as their exclusive (as in no other Sims will ever rent it) vacation home.

    Excerpts from the Journal of Felipe Monte**gro


    -I’ve taken up fishing, my boys both love it, going fishing with their pappap is something both of them really look forward to, and well, I kind of feel like I should try it myself. I could use something to relive stress besides working out on that machine, it’s kind of getting stale and doesn’t really do the trick like it used to. So, today after Roxie went to work and the boys were in school, I went out back and did a bit of fishing, I had gone a few times, mind you, Victor loves it too, and I had gone with him and papi some.
    The thing is, I did kind of did find it relaxing, just being outside and not having to do anything much, man and nature I guess, well, I thought a bit and just kind of relaxed. There may be something to this fishing thing after all.-

    K3LBEEd.jpg
    Felipe takes up fishing.


    -It all started when Carlos asked if he could go to his grandparents and see Victor, who’s just graduated from Uni, he did good too, he graduated with a Distinguished Degree in Economics from FI. We’re all pretty proud of him. It was a weeknight, but, well, Victor being back home is kind of a big deal, so his mother and I said yes. Honestly, I don’t know what time the boy got home, it was late, too late, but, well, me and Roxie had kind of been busy, if you get what I mean, Enrique had gone to bed early, for once, and well, you know.
    Anyway, a few nights later on, well, Roxie had taken one of those home pregnancy tests and it was positive or blue or whatever, anyway, she told us she was pretty sure she was expecting. Enrique was as thrilled as I was, of course, but Carlos asked me and Roxie if we had “messed up”, and he did it in a smart-alecky tone, that I did not appreciate one bit. Unfortunately, right then Miranda showed up, yeah, quite a coinkydink, her stopping by. And then Than Jeffries came over to visit with Roxie, they’re pretty friendly since she joined that artist club. And then, Betsy Connelly, a teenage girl, showed up. I know the Connelly family. Eva (Capricciosa) Connelly is a long time friend of mami’s. They were roommates back in the day before either of them were married, they shared a house with Paolo Rocca and Marcus Flex, I think. So I was around her two sons growing up, Kennan was older than me, he was Roxies age I think, but the younger son Shawn was my age and we were forced to play together sometimes. He wasn’t a bad kid or anything, we just weren’t friends and didn’t share any interests, but we had to play with each other when our moms got together. Anyway, Betsy is Kennan Connelly’s daughter. Apparently, Carlos and her met at school after a basketball game with the Windenburg team, Carlos was talking about when we all went to dinner at Chez Llama, bragging no doubt, and Betsy told him that her granddad was part owner and Executive Chef there. And I guess they got to talking and all and I assume sparks flew. So, there was a lot was going on that night.
    Later, as in the next day, Roxie told me that Betsy had mentioned Carlos visiting her, and it was the night he stayed out so late, when he was supposed to be visiting his grandparents to see Victor.
    Well, Carlos got some “B’s” on his last report card, ever since he got on the soccer team he’s been letting his grades slip, in grade school he made straight “A’s”, plus that disrespectful comment he made to me and his mother and now being deceitful about where he was. So, I decided to lower the boom on that boy right then and there. I told Roxie that I’d have a talk with him.
    When I got home from work the next day, the boys were writing in their journals in the dining room, so I went in there and told Enrique to go upstairs, that I needed to have a talk with Carlos. Enrique took one look at my face and he high-tailed it up those steps right fast, that boy is not dumb. Well, sir, I had a talk with Carlos, I laid down the law. I told him that neither his mother or I had ever in our whole lives spoken to our parents in such a disrespectful tone the way he did when Roxie told us she was expecting. Then I told him we knew that he had gone over to see Betsy, that he spent about 30 minutes at his grandparents then he went straight over to Betsy’s house and didn’t get home till way after curfew. And I just flat out said to him that he had better shape up and I mean right now, because if he didn’t get his grades up I would make him quit the soccer team and he would only see Betsy on the weekends and only one time at that. He had his head down when I finished and I said, look at me when I talk to you son. He looked up and his eyes were watering and his lip was quivering, so I knew it was taking everything he had not to cry. Then I said, do you understand me young man? He nodded his head, and I said I want to hear it son. He barely whispered, yes sir, to me and it was shaky at that. You are grounded until further notice Carlos, no TV, no PC games, no phone and straight up to your room when you get home. Now get your tail upstairs to your room, I said, he took off and then I called out to him, and by the way, your mother and I are going to have another talk with you about girls and dating when she gets home. Well, his face literally dropped on the floor, but he didn’t say a word, he just turned and ran upstairs.-

    Miranda finds out too.

    Carlos and Betsy take advantage of a moment alone.

    Felipe prepares to lower the boom.

    tCMgrfA.jpg
    Carlos’ infamous visit with Betsy.


    -Carlos got straight “A’s” on his report card. When Roxie got home and he told her, she suggested we celebrate by going to the Spice Festival in San Myshuno. She said she hadn’t had any morning sickness that day and we should take advantage while we could. Enrique had brought Kane home with him from school, so Roxie called Tucker to get permission to take him with us. Then she called and spoke to Betsy’s mom, to check if it would be OK for Carlos to invite her along too. They talked a bit, I kind of gathered Mrs. Connelly congratulated Roxie on being pregnant from what I heard.
    I thought it was a good idea, things have been strained between me and Carlos since my “talk” with him. He’s very polite, but he and I don’t really talk the way we used to. Well, no one said parenting was easy. Honestly, I second-guessed myself afterwards, maybe I was too hard on the boy, because maybe what he said had hit a nerve. The thing is, me and Roxie have been careless lately, ever since that night I came home from the discotheque, we’ve been way more affectionate that we had been in a long time and we, neither one of us, to be honest, has been as careful as we normally are. Yeah, we should have talked about it, but we just played Russian Roulette instead, we aren’t perfect, OK.
    Anyway, I feel like I did the right thing now, Carlos had done some things that worried me, being deceitful and backtalking me and Roxie, well, it seemed like the boy had gotten off-track and I wanted to get him back on the right track. And I feel like it worked, he has focused on his grades and pulled them up like I asked. So, maybe it was the right move. Again, parenting ain’t easy.
    The family outing to the Spice Festival was a success, if you ask me, by the end of it, me and Carlos were talking to one another at least and I think everyone had a lot of fun. It gave me and Roxie a chance to spend some time with Kane and Betsy and get to know both of them a little better too. And, well, later on, Roxie won’t feel up to something like that and when the baby gets here, well, let’s just say we won’t have many family outings for a while once that happens.-

    Enrique had Kane over after school.

    Arriving at the Spice Festival.

    0u178WW.jpg
    Carlos and Betsy sample the food.

    Jb5INa8.jpg
    Everyone has a good time and there’s lots of talking.


    -The Doctor had told us that this was a “high risk pregnancy”, so I’ve been worried, Roxie doesn’t have an easy time of it anyway, so I’m concerned that it will be even harder for her this time and all. It’s just so frustrating for me, because there is almost nothing I can do, I mean, being supportive only goes so far. It’s just kind of hard to feel so helpless about it, I guess.-

    Sometimes Roxie has morning sickness all day long.



    (NOTE: This is oopsie baby number 4, I admit to gaming the system just a bit by having Roxie and Felipe rekindle the passion in their marriage to up the odds. But it was another risky wohoo pregnancy.)

    @haneul

    Thanks 😊 I'm glad you're rooting for the guys. Thorne is kinda thorny lol.

    But I suppose Don isn't helping by not saying what he means often enough.

    Good point though, if he does say it Thorne says he's wrong. I should probably watch for that more in future updates, lol. They're getting nowhere fast

    For Deli's own sake I hope she gets sun immunity!!!

    Wow on the update!! I'd never thought about that route, just turn them human! Cool. I was ready for a lot of, ummm, Grim visits.

    Although, I've heard that having your life force drained isn't great either. That guy won't remember anyone, right?

    Hopefully his family will get him through it

    I have to wonder how many Vampires he'll attack before the "head honcho" finds out, and isn't happy with him. (I don't remember if you still have Vlad, or is Asher actually the highest vampire in your game?)

    It was hysterical that he went in and used their computer after he did that 😅

    And hmmmm, what is Deli contemplating? 🤔


    @Becka28
    Your Sims logic for star gazing... Check out Don and Thorne's idea for cloud gazing 😅

    JlrniR5.png

    The last breakfast at the old house is - Idk, nice, but difficult? I'm happy for Edvin Ollie and Cassandra's sake, and I know Jessica will be better off away from the memories. It's just weird.

    And omg at Vlad 😂

    First off, I started off by clicking the Asher Legacy to catch up on the story, and I admit I wasn't disappointed and will look at everything from the beginning.

    Definitely almost expected grim visits.

    The other quote was something I had to comment on. This picture of Don and Thorne would have been epic and make a ton more sense if they were merfolk. It's amazing how the appearance of a tail can make a difference in the logic.

    Anyways, I'll try not to comment too much on things from a year ago. The Asher Legacy is an active story, so I hope no one minds.

    Jordan's mom became friends with Vivian Lewis. She taught her how to knit.
    016-1.jpg

    The Villareal household hosted a pool party, and Dane's household as well as the sisters and nephews of Jordan's mom was invited. Dane met Jordan and Markus in that party.
    016-2.jpg

    Show spoiler to see what happened in the party.
    Of course, Jacques and Vivian had a fight with Vivian winning.
    016-3.jpg

    While the others were busy swimming or relaxing in the hot tub, the two continued their exchange of mean/mischief interactions. They had another fight which Jacques lost again. Jacques gave up, and just presented a peace offering to Vivian.
    016-4.jpg
    But it wasn't really a peace offering. It was a bouquet of flowers scented with Death Flower. Jacques literally killed Vivian!
    016-5.jpg

    Jacques saw the Grim Reaper, and who knows how many times he had seen him/her? The others were still busy, so only Jacques and the Grim Reaper know who killed Vivian.
    016-6.jpg

    Vivian's grave was placed in Newcrest Cemetery.
    016-7.jpg

    Jacques visited the cemetery the following night just to laugh at Vivian's grave.

    I feel like having a distraction from politics tonight.

    So here's a picture of Strawberry Bear making friends with the monster under the bed.
    gPJBBfK.png

    The bear's name is Harper Andreas-Munch, and she hit the bear phase at about the same time her little sister Maybelle was born.
    lU0FDiX.png

    Harper and Maybelle are the daughters of Lucas Munch and his wife Holly Andreas.

    If you've been following my posts for long, Holly is the twin sister of Ivy, the spellcaster from a few weeks ago, seen here with Harper without the bear suit.
    xVsDBfT.png

    One of Holly's siblings shows up pretty much every day as a random visit. Usually it's Ivy, but one day it was Derrick. It's been a loooong time since I played Derrick's household.
    gcKTfpH.png

    So... lots more screenshots under the spoiler for loading purposes.
    Lucas did his share of baby care, including late night feedings.
    rlAU7mI.png

    His silly faces are a little scary though.
    xwj89Tl.png

    And then we had a toddler!
    o80ljUK.png

    I took the family to Granite Falls for the Summer's End holiday. Since they had a toddler, they stayed in a cabin this time. Family campfire shots:

    The cabin included a little playroom with the cute EL dollhouse.

    Mom's Peruvian grilled chicken can't make up for having to eat it as a human.
    Dn2ynIU.png

    Wait, who are you and what have you done with Strawberry Bear?
    hLjEaUm.png

    They spent much of the day at the Granite Falls pool lot. Splashing around made Harper forget about bear suits for a while.
    lW1qiEr.png

    Maybelle got in on the fun too.
    08yAob6.png

    There was also some playground equipment at the pool.
    DKt1UuS.png
    ZLGZdng.png

    The combination of excitement and terror in this almost-smile...
    841UDVD.png

    The trip was successful, in that Lucas collected and identified the last of the Granite Falls plant types, and caught two of the five bug species he hadn't found last time.

    Back home, playing.
    MDGFU3m.png

    And I took this one with the walls down so Harper's bedroom is visible too. She decorates with her own artwork, mostly.

    Hope you enjoyed that distraction from world news. Happy simming!

    Erishkigal Reaper got a promotion in the Doctor career.
    Aken Reaper decided the best way to level up his cooking skill was to stare at a mixing bowl.
    Makaria Reaper learnt a new spell & then set the living room on fire practicing magic.
    Aislinn Reaper got a bit too enthusiastic beating her husband at chess.
    Grim Reaper attempted to win said game of chess by flirting.

    Magnolia May is settling into her home very nicely. Here she is about to enjoy a lovely dinner:

    After dinner she decided to chat with some of the neighbors who welcomed her:

    I had more pictures but Vlad showed up so I quickly saved my game and went and reinstalled the vampire stay away mod I had. Glad I kept that one.

    RECAP
    After Tristan settled in his new home and met everyone, the group went out of town and celebrated Love's Day at the bar.
    Before heading back home, Tristan stumbled across a bizarre plant and brought Iris along to investigate the so-called Secret Lab that has been the talk.
    Tristan and Iris hitched a ride and was dropped off in the desert, not too far from their destination. They made it to the crater and found the facility building. Fortunately, there was no guards in sight.
    "Looks like the coast is clear," Tristan said. "Let's roll out."
    Iris knew this was a bad idea and tried to change his mind, but Tristan was too stubborn.
    kNSls8g.png

    They found the backdoor...unlocked and checked out their surroundings. Each room was a mess, with papers scattered everywhere, like the scientists just up and left.
    iZ1ZmY9.png

    Tristan took out his phone to take a quick snapshot, but his once fully-charged phone was now completely dead.
    "I just charged it this morning," Tristan complained.
    "It's probably this crater," Iris pointed out.
    rHVJsM3.png

    Going room to room, they found a huge steel door.
    "Jackpot!" Tristan exclaimed. "There actually is a Secret Lab! What you think they're hiding, Iris?" No response. "Iris?"
    3l1xygM.png

    Iris was staring intently at the steel door and was brought back to reality when Tristan called out to her again.
    "You alright over there, Iris?" Tristan asked while examining the door.
    "Yeah, I'm fine..." Iris replied. "Now that we know this lab is real, what's your plan, Detective L?"
    Tristan chuckled at the nickname. "The only access is to have a keycard," he said. "Maybe we could find one here if one of the scientists left behind."
    opxcrSq.png
    7Kkga12.png

    They've searched all over the facility and filed through the stacks of paper. No keycard, but they've found a lot of documents mentioning about the plants sprouting in Strangerville and blurry pictures that were dated back in the 1950s.
    MKuLEwk.png
    VeDqh4x.png

    "This is all just nonsense now, Tristan," Iris protested. "Watcher knows how long we've been here, and everyone's probably wondering where the hell did we go."
    "You're right, let's call it a night," Tristan said. "Besides, we got what we needed here."
    95HVLEG.png

    As soon as they exited the building, they stopped short when they met a familiar face. Busted!
    1ufxExo.png

    At the Swan Residence...
    "What on Earth have you been thinking!" Dorothy exclaimed angrily. "Trespassing in a highly strict area! You could've been hurt out there!"
    aekc08N.png
    nk3CIMr.png

    "Madam Swan, ma'am, it was very, very, VERY huge mistake, and we are sorry for causing trouble," Tristan said, shaking in fright. He dealt with being scolded by his mother when he was young, but Dorothy is a different story.
    "You better have a good explanation, Mister Lothario."
    Before Tristan could speak, Iris intervened, "It was my fault. I was the one who thought it was a good idea to go to the crater."
    akhELsI.png

    "Very unusual of you to commit a crime, Ms. Jossma," Dorothy said.
    "I know, and it won't happen again, Madam Swan."
    The woman looked at the two troubled friends and sighed. "Very well then, I'll let you two off with a warning. If this ever happened again, there will be dire consequences. Understood?"
    "Yes," Tristan and Iris responded and were excused to leave the room.
    n5bFKR8.png
    y0BHTeI.png

    "Why didn't you get rid of him?" Cian complained. "He's already becoming a bad influence after what he and Iris had done."
    "It's not as easy as you think it is," Dorothy said. "Tristan is under strong protection."
    "Protection of what?"
    "The Family."
    Cian scowled at the mention of them. "Of course. Never really like them."
    "And you're lucky they gave you chance," Dorothy pointed out. "If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't be where you are with your dear Keith."
    Mv02UJM.png
    LuotJIf.png

    Once they exited the room, Tristan exhaled heavily. "That was intense," he said. "She's a lot more scarier than my mom when she's mad. Why'd you do that? You know it was my idea to go there."
    "I know, but I don't want you to take the blame, especially when you just got here," Iris explained. "That's what friends are for, right? Looking out for each other?"
    "Yeah...true," Tristan said.
    GUXb3A8.png

    The two hugged it out, relieved that they were alright.
    'Wish we were more than just friends' Tristan thought to himself as he held Iris close.

    And finally, the main event of today! Finally time for a wedding!
    ...OF COURSE it's raining on their wedding day, but no, that does not make it ironic (anyone getting that reference is OLD. Like me).

    You're right, it doesn't make it ironic. Rain on your wedding day is just as ironic as seeing 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife...

    Beautiful sims btw. o:)
    Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
    I have loved the stars too truly to be fearful of the night.

    With their youngest daughter at school & the older kids either at work, or preoccupied with various creative pursuits, Grim & Aislinn decided to go on their first date in quite some time. Unfortunately the date turned into a comedy of errors, but they made the most of it, kept a good sense of humour & still managed to get a silver reward at least.

    The date itself: They headed to Von Haunt, where they decided to check out the wedding facilities they're, with planning a wedding vow renewal. Although they discovered the location was partly suitable, they also realised it wouldn't be able to cater for their rather large family to attend. Then they decided to sit at one of the tables under a nearby gazebo & enjoy each others company, only to be interrupted by a child who decided to just stare creepily at them the entire time. They decided to try somewhere else & decided to spontaneously woohoo in a bush, only for it to start pouring with rain. They finally decided to go back to the Chalet itself to get out of the rain & at least enjoy a shared love of art.

    Arriving home, Grim found his daughter, Cerise, was none too impressed at being told she had to do her homework before she went rollerskating - but did agree to compromise & tutor her so her homework was completed faster. Magnus the cat then needed cuddles & attention, which Grim was more than happy to provide, before he settled down on the couch to watch TV with his son.
    I had one of my Sims marry the Grim Reaper & now they have a lot of kids.

    Dane and Bruce played chess and practiced acting together.
    18-1.jpg

    Dane bought a microscope and placed it in his mini laboratory at the rooftop of their mansion.
    18-0.jpg

    He continued building his Logic skill, and eventually, he completed the Nerd Brain aspiration when playing chess with Jordan, thus, acquiring the Handy trait. He tested his new technique Insta-repair on Jordan's computer. He also upgraded Jordan's bed.
    18-2.jpg
    Screenshot-85.png

    Two new rooms were built at the basement of the Villareal mansion--yoga room and workout room.
    18-3.jpg

    Jordan went to a gym with Markus who left so early, and then Jordan met Manuel who was also working out there. They quickly became friends.
    18-4.jpg

    It was Romance Festival again in San Myshuno!
    Show spoiler to see whom Jordan met up with in the festival.
    It was Holly, the daughter of Tomax Collete! She just had her first kiss from a guy. But they did not "mess around."
    18-8.jpg

    Manuel's residence was just close by, so Jordan paid him a visit and met Mick as well.
    18-9.jpg

    Show spoiler to see who became Bruce's first official girlfriend.
    It was none other than Morgan Fyres! And it was Erik who set them up together.
    18-5.jpg

    18-6.jpg

    When Erik asked Morgan about Bruce, this was her response:
    Screenshot-87.png

    It was Love Day! And it really sucks for teenagers that it's always on a Friday. Mick was only able to give a flower to Jessie, and then he had to go to the Drama Club meeting.
    18-7.jpg

    Manuel was very determined to make the day special because it marked the second anniversary of him and Summer. He promptly went to Summer's residence right after the Drama Club meeting.
    18-10.jpg

    The two of them were thinking about where to spend their second anniversary when Manuel suddenly discovered the secret passage in the Sylvan tree.
    18-11.jpg

    Show spoiler to see what Manuel and Summer did in the Sylvan Glade.
    At this point, Manuel was already a hundred percent sure that Summer is the girl he wants to be with forever, so he initiated their exchange of promise rings. In addition, he found the scenery so perfect for the occasion.
    18-12.jpg
    Screenshot-88.png

    The two of them changed to sleepwear, and they made love to each other in the tent brought by Manuel.
    18-13.jpg
    18-15.jpg

    They stargazed together while thinking of what names they will give to their future children.
    18-14.jpg

    Manuel and Summer were very inspired.

    On Sunday morning, Artemis heard one of the cats mewing sadly. She went to investigate.
    "Hey, Coco, are you OK?" she asked.
    Coco merely looked at her sadly, and Artemis noticed that she had a glowing red nose.
    "Oh no! You look sick! I'd better tell Mum and we can get you to the vet."

    UvMayf1.jpg

    "Mum, I think Coco is sick."
    "Oh dear," Caroline said, "what's wrong? Any symptoms?"
    "Well, she seems kinda sad... and her nose is bright red!"
    "Ooh, that sounds bad. We'd better get over to Brindleton Pawspital."

    NnUKr6N.jpg

    "Everything's OK, Coco, you'll be better soon," Caroline said soothingly as Coco sat on the table.

    zdTQrrs.jpg

    Coco was diagnosed with Overheated Sniffer and treated accordingly, and she soon felt much better.


    Caroline had had many messages from her agency saying that she was sure to be nominated for a Starlight Accolade, but so far no such nomination had been given. She had heard from other celebrities that she could just turn up at Studio PBP anyway, on a Sunday at 6pm, and see if she won something. So, that evening, she headed over to Del Sol Valley in her finest formal wear.

    lUcVTRX.jpg

    Sure enough, Caroline was awarded the Starlight Accolade for Best Acting!
    Wow, it was definitely worth coming! she thought.

    NZyLLdt.jpg

    "Thank you, everyone," Caroline said. "Well, I'm so grateful to everyone for watching my performances and appreciating my performances. I'd also like to thank my wonderful husband, Peter, and my four lovely children for all being so supportive. Hopefully I can continue doing this for many years to come."

    hmLj4Bv.jpg

    "Congratulations!" said a man with blond hair as she sat back down. "You're Caroline Masterson, right? I'm Thorne Bailey. Nice to meet you."
    "Nice to meet you, too," Caroline replied. She knew that he was a well-known musician, who was married to Octavia Moon and had a son, Orange.

    x2VwUGa.jpg

    Back home...
    "Hey, Peter! Guess what?"

    MZrZlaD.jpg

    "What is it?" Peter asked.
    "I won a Starlight Accolade Award!"
    "Oh, that's amazing! Congratulations!" Peter exclaimed.

    ZuQmNyx.jpg

    Caroline soon auditioned for her next role as Captain Sigma and was successful, despite not having *quite* the required level of fitness. Perhaps the director was feeling generous given Caroline's recent awards success.

    On Monday evening, after a fun day at school which had been focused on Personal Development, Erytheia held a meeting of No Grown-Ups Allowed! Nani Kealoha had grown too old for the group, and Evie Delgato was almost at that stage, so she thought it would be a nice idea. It would be her own birthday the following week, so there weren't many opportunities left.
    "So, our birthdays are next week," Alexander said. "We'll be able to finally practice magic!"
    "I know, I'm so excited," Erytheia grinned. "I'm going to get my butt over to the Magic Realm as soon as I can."
    "I'll join you! My birthday is the day before yours, so I'll wait until we're both teens. It'd be fun for us to learn magic together - with Xanthe, of course."
