Familiar Faces Chapter Thirteen

  1. 1. Welcome Back to Familiar Faces! Chapter Thirteen: Kids, Families and Match Making
  2. 2. When last we left the Familiar's Cassandra had just given birth to twins Dwight and Demi. Cass apparently gained a bit extra weight during her pregnancy, which doesn't bother Cary in the least bit. "There's just more of her to love!" The twins will be spares since I go by the rule of the eldest is always heir. The Familiar family has grown a lot this generation and I will be introducing various members at various times, if at any point you become confused as to who is who (very easy to do) you might want to pop over to ndainye.tribalpages.com and check the family tree.
  3. 3. And we already have an heir in eldest child of the generation David Familiar. Whatcha doing there David? "I wanna know what's happening at other people's houses, our house is boring! Nobody pinches the maid, there's no nanny playing in the water wiggler and there's no zombies in our hot tub." Well if you don't stop spying on the neighbors there will be some excitement here, your Great- Uncle Darren will come running over here and spank your bottom. "Nu uh! Last time he tried that I just showed him the pictures I took with this scope and he gave me $50 and told me to keep quiet."
  4. 4. Betty is still taking a day here and there to run Familiar Fruits and Veggies. Between her sales skills and Adonis's managerial skills the stars keep mounting. Most of the earned perks so far have been put into connections but we also put some into mood and motivation. Perma plat three times over Betty can do a few rally forth's and then go out back and energize to regain whatever motives she lost in the process.
  5. 5. Of course Adonis does most of the grunt work both at the business and at home. And he never fails to complain about doing his chores. Adonis is a perma plat romance servo and like the majority of the family is super messy and hates to clean. Too bad for him his programing overrides his personality.
  6. 6. "You know Adonis, most people try to offer me bribes to get their kids into private school, but this family never does that. It's good to see that there are still honest people in the world that recognize that there's no such thing as a free lunch."
  7. 7. "Very few *crunch murphll* families these *mfaluu* days seem to *munch welius* recognize the value of a good education. *mufwad owuea* Our school offers the kids so much more than just *shovel swoua* three r's. Our etiquette lessons are *slurp* based directly off the directives of Emily Post. There's nothing more *munch crunch* important in life than a well rounded education. *Belch* Wonderful meal as usual, we'll be pleased to David in our school."
  8. 8. David loves private school, he especially likes the etiquette courses taught by headmaster Eric. Of course David doesn't have to study very hard to emulate Eric his beautiful table manners come naturally.
  9. 9. In the last chapter I think I gave Cary and Cass a bit of a bad rep as careless parents. They aren't bad parents at all, they constantly have wants to interact with one child or another, it's just that they are more likely to be pillow fighting with each other until they pass out than actually doing any of the things they roll wants to do with their children.
  10. 10. "Nervous, I've noticed that you've been a little bit critical of the way that we run this business. And so I thought that now that we are best friends that I would offer you the opportunity to learn first hand just what a quality establishment we run here."
  11. 11. And so Nervous learned a valuable lesson, don't complain to the management of Familiar Fruits and Veggies or you may soon find yourself an underpaid shop clerk trying desperately to figure out how the keys on the cash register work.
  12. 12. Hiring an extra employee put a small crunch on the fruit stand's budget but it gave Adonis more time to push the poorer quality stock off on unsuspecting shoppers. "Joe, Joe! Forget the tasty and mouth watering apples, you don't need em. Bland is where it's at these days. I'm telling you Joe; Bland is the new white, you can't go wrong with a bland apple."
  13. 13. Back at the ranch petacy heir Buffy grew into an adult. She has the same markings as her mother Daisy but her lighter fur coloring comes down from her great grandmother Sassy.
  14. 14. Meanwhile, Betty decided to call up an old friend and renew his affection. Her relationship panel showed her as having a crush on Jonah but no longer being in love with him. Her panels and memories confused me since the number of loves in them didn't match up. Before she invited Jonah over I couldn't tell if she was at 19 or 21 she either needed to fall in love with one or fall out of love with two and in love with one more.
  15. 15. But falling back in love with Jonah worked! Lifetime want number four is down. Twenty Simult loves for Betty. Four's enough for Betty since her next lifetime want is to be a rock god, which at her age isn't possible.
  16. 16. "I don't get it Jenn, she comes home from work every day I don't get what the big deal is." I don't either David, but that's a family sim for you. If she'd bring home a bookcase I could see a reason for celebration but just coming home isn't that interesting to me.
  17. 17. Speaking of celebrations it's time for twin toddler tossing. Spin those babies and lets see what happens!
  18. 18. The sims in this household show the wide range of personalities that can fall under the same zodiac sign. Dwight is a Sagittarius but he's not like any Sag I've ever had before at 7/2/10/7/3 he's neat(?), shy, active, playful and mean.
  19. 19. Demi on the other hand is a more typical Sagittarius, at 1/8/9/8/3 she's messy, outgoing, active, playful and mean. Six out of the seven sims in the house currently are Sag's, Cass as a Cancer is the only oddball. Looking at these guys I figure that active and playful are the base personalities for Sags, since all of them are 8-10 active and playful. Besides those two things in common they vary greatly on the rest Dwight is neat and shy, Betty and Adonis are nice. David, Cary and Demi are messy, outgoing and mean.
  20. 20. "Why won't they give me an A+? I've been to school three times already, I even do my homework. It's embarrassing that Chris already has an A+ and I don't. I'm the heir they should pander to me!"
  21. 21. ". . . And that's how you get them to give you an A+ Master David" "Of course, of course how simple is that? I should have thought of it myself. Thank you Iago!"
  22. 22. "I'm sure that you understand that as the heir to the legacy it's very important that I'm seen as the leader of my generation. I'm also sure that you understand that as the heir to the legacy I have an army of undead minions at my beck and call and of course it would be a shame if my minions had to come and speak to you personally Mr. Todd. Yes, yes I can tell that you do understand, thank you Mr. Todd." 1 nice point.
  23. 23. It's a sad day for the family and for the staff of Familiar manor when Grim comes to collect Smokey and send him to the great beyond. Since Grim wants no trouble from the devil dog he once again brings a wolf companion with him for protection. The wolf was unneeded Smokey had mellowed greatly in his elder hood and went peacefully.
  24. 24. As sad as the passing of any pet is there's no fear that the toddler's of the Familiar house will miss out on doggy cuddles. There's almost always a doggy handy when a cuddle is wanted.
  25. 25. If there wasn't a doggy around Jack-in-the-box is always willing to be squeezed as well.
  26. 26. Cass took care of most of the toddler training this go round, she's the only non perma plat adult in the household so she's always looking for an aspiration boost. But twins are a handful so everyone pitches in and help out as well.
  27. 27. Daddy takes care of the tickles and talks that are needed to keep the twins plat for their grow up and earns himself two more best friends in the process.
  28. 28. Training and tickles done it's time for transitions. I don't do parties for every birthday and Dwight's so shy that his panel never lost the fear of a party while he was a toddler so they had a quiet family celebration.
  29. 29. The twins have very different facial features than David but the two of them are remarkably similar. Both of the twins have pudgier almost lumpy faces and wide mouths.
  30. 30. They are also lacking longer 'Pinocchio' nose that David got from Cary.
  31. 31. "Davey? Mom and Dad have to work today and Mom got Grandma coming to watch me so that I'm not alone with the Nanny all day, you gotta talk her into bringing you and the twins with her. I'm gonna invite Chris too so we can have the initial meeting of the first circle for this generation."
  32. 32. With no parent's around the first circle gets to spend some quality time with Grandma over at Johnny and Cher's. Betty makes sure to impart all the secrets of her success to her grandchildren. "You gotta start with a good foundation, you don't want something that's gonna start to shine half way thru the day."
  33. 33. "That was soo cool Celeste! We are gonna have so much fun once we all get to UNI. The first circle is gonna rock the campus this generation. Thanks for inviting us all over. I'll see you next week at my party. Grandma's promised that she's gonna get everyone to come it's gonna be great!
  34. 34. "Hiss boss, why are we here? If you need fresh produce we got that in abundance at the safe house There's no need to go shopping for any. Sides I hear they try to push the poor quality stuff off on customers here. We don't want any bland oranges to mess up our orangeade." "Hush Misty, my aunt owns this place they only sell the bland stuff to townies, family always gets the good stuff. I just stopped by cause I heard a rumor that they've got a secret weapon here. The army needs weapons. I don't know why Aunt Betty didn't bring this to us for the army first before going public though."
  35. 35. "Okay Adonis tell it to me straight Ellen told me that Aunt Betty advised her to get a cucumber. Said it would change her life. Tell me what's so powerful about the cucumber's here." "It would be against store policy to explain that to you Mr. Boris. I'm sorry but Mz Betty is very strict as to who learns about the sixty-two reasons for cucumbers." "But I'm family Adonis, there shouldn't be any secrets between family." "Yes but you are a male and you would not like to be told at least thirty of the reasons."
  36. 36. David? Mr. Todd is coming to dinner tonight to get Dwight and Demi into your school. He's still a bit sensitive to your A+ threats so it would probably be a good idea to just lay low and stay out of sight. "But the threats worked and I'm getting A+'s every day now, I'm sure that I could convince Mr. Todd to let them in without any problems. I'd only have to say a word or two and they'd be in." We're quite capable of getting them into private school without resorting to threats or bribes. That's one of the reasons why Mr. Todd likes this family, or at least he used to like this family before you started threatening him. "I thought he liked this family cause 'Aunt' Bailey woohoo'd him at every Greek house party for three years."
  37. 37. "And see children through the miracle of a good education even apes can learn to talk, can't they Mr. Todd?" "You're absolutely correct Ms Familiar it's amazing what we are able to do these days and all because of the benefit of a good education." *giggles*
  38. 38. "Wait a second did she just insult me somehow? *thinks* Nah! of course not."
  39. 39. Oh a lemon aid stand how cute. Are you all taking turns buying and selling? "No ma'am, David said that now that he's almost a teen it's time to turn the business over to the peons. So he's training Demi to be the money man and I'm here to shake down the customer's in case anyone gets rowdy and refuses to pay our exorb exhorb. What's the word again Davey?"
  40. 40. "Exorbitant! Grrr never mind just say pricey. There's a reason why I'm the brains behind this operation and you're the muscles."
  41. 41. "I said I want them all! If they can walk on their own two feet I want them here today."
  42. 42. It's David's birthday and it's time for the kids to learn the true meaning of family.
  43. 43. From houses all around the neighborhood they start to appear. Little boys in hats and coats, and little girls with long hair and big smiles. Betty wanted all the children from generation five that could be here to come for David's party and get to know each other.
  44. 44. So far there's eleven in generation five that have made it to childhood, there were lots of little sister's and brother's that couldn't make it to the party since they were still in cribs or were just twinkles in someone's eye. But we had a good representation of the Familiar extended family together for the first time this generation.
  45. 45. Standing: Chay Nova (Son of Bea, Grandson of Amy), Dwight Familiar, David Familiar, Demi Familiar, and Clay Familiar (Son of Barclay, Grandson of Aaron) Floor: Cassia London (Daughter of Becca, Granddaughter of Amelia), Celeste Smith (Daughter of Cher), Christopher Familiar (Son of Clint), Caden Familiar (Son of Boris, grandson of Bob), Caitlyn Indie (Daughter of Bailey, Granddaughter of Barbie) and Cory Familiar (Son of Baird, Grandson of Aaron) If you are confused as to who's who check out the Familiar Family Tree at ndainye.tribalpages.com
  46. 46. Every child brought a parent or grandparent with them, but the party was for the kids not the parents. There were hotdogs and jello to eat, video games, snowball fights and playtime on the swings for everyone.
  47. 47. Finally it was time for David to make his wish and blow out his candles. "I wish to be suave and debonair as befitting my status as legacy heir." *warning* do not turn the page if you are eating or drinking, swallow first. I am not responsible for choking or spewing.
  48. 48. "Woot I got my wish!" For everyone that thought I was too hard on David's looks in the past this is why. I'd seen him as a teen and I knew better than to gush about what a cute kid he was. I betcha there are some uglacy writer's out there shaking their fists right about now. Get to the dresser and the mirror right this instant young man we'll see what we can do to make it all better.
  49. 49. Okay well that's better at least. I have no idea where that chin came from. I'm pretty sure it came from Chaz, it just wasn't exhibited quite the same in Cary as it is in David. But anyway David rolled knowledge and wants to be a criminal mastermind. All in all that's fairly fitting for his personality, and I'm happy since I haven't had a knowledge heir yet.
  50. 50. "Happy Birthday son, promise me that you won't tell your father what your lifetime want is, I'm gonna need some time to prepare him for it okay?" "Umm okay Mom whatever you say."
  51. 51. That's right Cary's second lifetime want was to be a Captain Hero and he's loving the job so far. His third lifetime want is a Golden Anniversary so he doesn't have any reason to quit this job yet. He spent a little bit of time job hopping to pick up rewards but he really likes fighting crime. "It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it!"
  52. 52. Speaking of dirty jobs, we've got another composting obsessed kid in the house. Haven't had a neat kid since Bob. Cass has 7 neat points as well but she's not obsessed with cleaning. In fact I don't think I've ever seen her autonomously clean anything, whereas Dwight scrubs every tub and toilet in the house almost every day.
  53. 53. "Umm Demi hon, what are you doing?" "Dwight keeps tossing all the good stuff! I have to follow him around and rescue them. This teddy bear is only missing three arms he's still good. And those can's can be used for making stuff."
  54. 54. "And the best part is that suckers on Ebay will buy your old socks and half eaten toast just cause you used to be a famous Rock God!" As a stark contrast to Dwight we have his twin Demi the dumpster diver.
  55. 55. "Thank you for coming Rosemarie, I'm in a bit of desperate straights and I hope that you can help me out." "Ahh got yourself bitten by a vampire and need a cure all? Or maybe it was a bit of the pesticide?"
  56. 56. "Ahh no nothing like that, I know that fewer people are using your services now that the wishing wells are so readily available but well I haven't had much luck with the well and I was hoping you could help me out." "You're a tin man, and you think that your creator forgot to give you a heart yes?" "This isn't Oz old woman, I don't want a heart I want woohoo!"
  57. 57. "I see, I see, I see a lovely woman that likes the outdoors and has a beautiful garden." "Perfect! an earthy type, that will enjoy getting back to nature *chuckles* maybe even one of those sexy leafy plantsims!"
  58. 58. "Huh! a elderly garden club recruiter? What's with this, the wishing well gives me a animal control officer and an elderly obedience trainer and now I pay the old crone 5k and she gives me a garden clubber that I don't even have a single bolt for?" "I'm guessing you have a woohoo with 5 service sims want in your panel?" "I'm a romance sim, of course I do."
  59. 59. "Yes dear, my name's Betty Familiar, you may have heard of my top ranked business Familiar Fruits and Veggies? No, well okay then, I got your number from my business perks phone book. What no I don't want to sell you anything, well not really I just thought you might like to talk to my grandson. He such a good boy, so smart and he's handsome to boot!"
  60. 60. "Huh, no I don't NEED my grandmother to fix me up. I don't know why she thought it would be a good idea for us to get to know each other. I frankly have more important things to do than be concerned about girls at this point. What do mean I sound like a geek? I'm not a geek, I'm a happening dude, I just haven't yet turned my focus to girls."
  61. 61. "No I'm not gay! I've just got finals coming up and it's really important that I keep my straight A average in order to get plenty of scholarships. I'm also very close to making contact with aliens, I'm sure that given enough time I'll be able to break down their barriers of resistance and get them to parlay."
  62. 62. "And then there's the wolf population, so many of them to befriend. If I greet every single one of them that comes onto the lot eventually the same one will have to return a second time."
  63. 63. "What? well yeah I guess I'm just fascinated by the super natural. I dunno it kinda runs in the family. Everyone in my family seems to have a thing for aliens or zombies. I do have alien genes you know. No I'm not one of the cute green guys from the private school those are my 'cousins' dang them they have all the luck."
  64. 64. Daisy poofed to elder and Cass wants her to retire, but I'd prefer that she top her career before she retires. No one in this generation really cares about the dogs and their careers, unlike past generations none of them roll wants for the dogs to learn new skills, they just constantly roll wants to give love and to play with them or to command them to do whatever skills they learned in the past.
  65. 65. Daisy unlike some of the past dogs isn't a doofus and learns remarkably quickly. She has the most realistic play dead that I've yet to see. A little too realistic perhaps.
  66. 66. As a whole the dogs are pretty well behaved at this point. While we do still have the challenges they will play with each other more readily and I haven't had a break up a fight for awhile. Of course having seven peoples in the house that all roll wants to give attention to the dogs every day keeps the animals social up. *Growl* *Buffy you're a disgrace to your lineage you mustn't be sweet and playful. Familiar mutts are mean and aggressive* *Growl*
  67. 67. *Woof, woof woof grrooowl* *Much better young one you are learning* *Thank you gracious great grandfather I will work hard to live up to your image*
  68. 68. "Hi sis, good day of dumpster diving?" "Nah not much of value here today, I think Dwight's on to me and he's composting the good stuff now. Only things in here today are an old romance novel and a boot."
  69. 69. "Grandma isn't the point of this exercise to put the chocolates in the box and not in your mouth? So far out of twenty candies you've only boxed up six and you've eaten fourteen." Appositives to Dwight that Adonis wasn't available to do the less messy version of cooking training today. Betty never maxed cooking since I prefer to not have a lobster thermidor rebellions on my hands. The only sims that top cooking in my hood are those that need it for work or those that roll the want to do so.
  70. 70. "Okay so let us get this straight, if he falls for me and we end up married I get your pearls right? That's the deal, that and a free pass to university plus all the rights and benefits that go with being the legacy spouse." "And you get my beloved grandson that's not only nice and smart but also very handsome." "Lady don't snow me I'm a Capp. Capps are all about the bottom line."
  71. 71. In the Shakespeare version of Romeo and Juliet, Juliet refused to allow her family to arrange a marriage for her and instead embarked on an ill fated relationship with Romeo. In my version the arranged romance of Juliet and David turns out to be a naturally high two bolter and Juliet seems eager to forget all about Romeo and live to reach adulthood. I'll let David do some hunting around when he hits UNI but unless he turns up a much better option we'll grow Juliet up with the cousins and send her to UNI as David's intended and finally get my Verona Villian.
  72. 72. Promotion to Rock God, second lifetime want completed and Adonis still hasn't found a woman he truly finds attractive. We spent about three days downtown looking at every known romance sim in the hood and all he'd do is shrug at them. I really don't get it, Betty never found a natural three bolter but she's got two bolters coming out her ears, you'd think with Adonis having the same personality that there would be some female out there that he would click with. Garden Clubber Jill Smith isn't the one, but she'll do for now cause; say it with me 'Romancer's just aren't that picky'.
  73. 73. "He's working his way through the garden club now Ben, soon enough we'll see Toby Bruening popping out of the well for him." Ben still loves a good gossip, and he's finally gotten over his mom burning that spaghetti. Now day's he's more apt to gossip about Boris cheating on Ellen with a zombie or about how Lucy peed herself at a party after being bleh'd by Rebecca.
  74. 74. Speaking of parties everyone's here to eat cake, and celebrate the twin teening. Even the ghosts are here. Bad dog Lady! We do not allow dogs on the table in this house, you know that!
  75. 75. Okay you two lets blow em out and grow em up!
  76. 76. Mean and shy Dwight rolls romance with the lifetime want to Woohoo 20 sims. Takes after granny he does. Normally I'd say good luck with that and re-roll him at junior year, but I'm up for a challenge at the moment and this one should be fun.
  77. 77. Demi on the other hand is not at all interested in romance, in fact she'll never get around to rolling the want for her first kiss. Like her Uncle Clint her teen wants will all focus on scholarships and money, she rolled fortune with the lifetime want to be Chief of Staff.
  78. 78. Less than twenty four hours after rolling his aspiration Dwight's ready to get started with the romancing and has power wants for dates and first kisses.
  79. 79. Unfortunately it was also less than twenty four hours since the well was last used. Oops I'd forgotten about that part of the rule, he was in gold so I was gonna get him up to plat for a skilling fest.
  80. 80. Dwight saw her coming and ran into the house, he may be a romance sim but he's picky enough to not want to get his first kiss from the old hag.
  81. 81. "Young man you can run but you can not hide from the power of the purse. I would have thought that your grandmother had seen the backside of my purse often enough to pass on some words of wisdom to you about respecting your elders. But Betty never was all that wise, so I fear I must impart the wisdom myself." "I wasn't running from you ma'am the phone was ringing and I just thought I should answer it. I'm really sorry you were offended, I apologize profusely."
  82. 82. "Apology not accepted! And for daring to talk back to me you will learn why I am feared even more than old grim himself."
  83. 83. "What is that racket can't you kids beat on each other outside for once? Blast it I had a corner hook combination all lined up perfect and you just had to break my concentration. I'm gonna start counting now and by the time I get to three you had better be in your rooms."
  84. 84. "And now you know why you should always respect your elders! Now you seem like a nice young man all things considered so keep your nose clean and off my turf and we'll get along just fine." And yes that is Dwight earning aspiration points for getting whomped by Mrs. Crumplebottom. He squired the memory of having met Mrs. C, but she didn't get added to his panel or his phone book.
  85. 85. "Grandma I think I'll take you up on that offer to set me up with a first kiss target after all. I don't wanna risk getting on the bad side of that old bat again." "Good thinking Dwight, now remember when you get to the Greek house you assert your rights to sole usage of the wishing well. I'm not playing favorites here, Christopher is romance as well and he'll probably try to get in a few wishes but you keep at it cause he's got a career lifetime want and he'll be able stay happy with just a couple of girls. You on the other hand are gonna need all the help you can get."
  86. 86. Betty pulled her magic phone book out and set Dwight up on a blind date with young Bella Board. There wasn't much chemistry there but it was enough and Dwight got his first kiss power want out of the way.
  87. 87. "Don't even offer Grandma, it's not that I don't want your help and I'm sure you'd pick a good one for me. I'm just not interested right yet." "Not interested in kisses? Such a strange child." She's not strange Betty, she's keeping her options open. The randomize spun Demi up to be Bi so I want to make sure her choices are her's and I'm not gonna set anything up for her until she wants it.
  88. 88. For now what Demi wants is the Hogan's Athletic Award, the Will Wright Genius Grant and the Quigley Visual Arts Grant.
  89. 89. She also pops off to work for a day and snares the Young Entrepreneur's award as well. For the first time in this legacy all three of the teens are over achievers. They can blame that on their mother and her not yet perma plat status. Cass won't be perma plat till after all three graduate, and so we grant her wants when we're able to do so.
  90. 90. Scholarships done the taxis line up outside the house and the teens make their phone calls it's time for the three generation five teens to be kicked to UNI.
  91. 91. David, Demi and Dwight settle into their first semester dorm and end up with a long wait for their cousins and 'cousins' to join them. It took me quite awhile to play all the houses through and get all the kids here. But we made it. Joining these three at university will be twenty three other generation five descendants of Fred Familiar. The next few slides will show family shots of each branch of the family tree. If you get confused remember you can look at the full tree at ndainye.tribalpages.com
  92. 92. First Circle - descendants of Betty Familiar - Fred->Abe->Betty Back Row: Lucy and Clint Familiar, Cary and Cassandra Familiar, Cher and Johnny Smith Center: Betty Familiar Front: Celeste Smith (Cher), David Familiar, Adonis, Dwight Familiar, Demi Familiar and Christopher Familiar (Clint)

  94. 94. Rebecca and Bade tossed me a surprise and Colette Dreamer was born fairly late in their adult lives. She didn't age to child until after the death of her beloved grandmother so we didn't get another family photo done to include her.
  95. 95. Third Circle - Descendants of Bob Familiar - Fred->Abe->Bob Back: Copper Familiar (Ben), Caden Familiar (Boris), Cameron Familiar (Ben) Center: Bob and Sierra Familiar Front: Ben and Betsy Familiar Boris and Ellen Familiar
  96. 96. Again I was tossed a late life surprise Three days after the previous picture was taken Boris and Ellen presented the family with young Cale Familiar. He'll have to get to know his brother Caden at University since they were raised almost completely separately
  97. 97. Fourth Circle - Descendants of Amelia (Familiar) Bross - Fred->Al->Amelia Couch: Bo Bross, Cassia London, Amelia Bross Sitting: Blair London, Cort London (toddler), Becca (Bross) London Front: Twins Collin and Caine London

  99. 99. Sixth Circle - Descendants of Amy (Familiar) Roque - Fred->Al->Amy Couch: Amy and Gunnar Roque Seated: Castor, Cody, Chay and Bea Nova
  100. 100. It took me quite awhile to play the extended family through not just because there were so many of them but also because I just didn't want to let go of my gen threes. Playing the way that I do, sims die and for a large part I'm used to it. There are some sims that grab me and that I hate to say goodbye to, but rarely am I grabbed as hard as I was by this entire generation. The six of them stayed close throughout their lives rarely did a day go by when there was no visiting between them. I'd often be playing one of their houses and look up to see that one of the others had stopped by to say hello and catch up. Betty will make it into the next generation because of the glitch that hit her after she turned elder which reset her lifebar, Bob will make it as well of course he's immortal but the rest I had to say goodbye to before I could get all their grandchildren grown.
  101. 101. When the time came and Amy was going to be the first to go, she invited the rest over for one last party. Just the six of them the rest of the family was banned to bed early so that the elders could talk about old times and share one last dance.
  102. 102. Rest in Peace Generation Three, I'll miss each and every one of you. Yes even Barbie lazy sod that she was. I'm sure I'll eat those words once your plans to haunt your descendants starts to play out in force, but for now I'll let myself be sad. Join us next time when the six circles of Familiarity hit UNI and chaos ensues Until then, Thanks for reading, and Happy Simming!
