Chapter 7.11 – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the first post of the new year! I hope you guys had a good one.

I’m determined to finish this legacy this year since I have an idea for another legacy for the Holly’s afterwards. Anyway, we need to finish up this legacy first before anything so let’s get on with it.

What’s up with you?

Wren: Nyx is cheating on me

Where do you get that idea from?

Xanthe: Definitely wasn’t me *shifty eyes*

I mean, it’s not as if Xanthe was completely wrong…

Blake Greyson: Hey big boy, do you wanna have a good time?

Nyx: I’d rather not

Blake: Fine, your loss

Wren: You’re lucky it’s your birthday or you’d be paying for your comments about Nyx

Xanthe: Love you too mum

Xanthe: Uh…is it to late to change my mind about this aging thing?

Yep, far too late

Xanthe: But I don’t want to be a grownup

Xhasca: Get over yourself Xanthe, it’ll be fun…and we can finally move out.

Shiloh *stops mid blow* You’re doing what now?!

Both girls grew up really pretty as I’d expected but I don’t think I’ll miss them all that much since I never grew attached to them the way I did with the younger 3.

Xanthe rolled the Master Romancer LTW and with only 2 votes she is not the new heir.

Xhasca rolled the Hit Movie Composer LTW and with only 1 vote she is not the new heir either.

Wren: Finally! The unworthy ones will be gone and only my true children will remain.

Is it really any wonder Xhasca can’t wait to be gone with an attitude like that?

Wren: I’m only saying what is true.

*SMH*

Xhasca: Yeah, Realtor guy, I need a new house asap.

Xhasca: I don’t care what it looks like. Just get me out of here. Now!

And with that the twins move out.

You’re welcome to come around any time you want.

Xanthe: Yeah…not gonna happen.

Shiloh: I can’t believe the only people who cared about me have moved out!

Wren cares about you…

Shiloh: It’s not the same, she has the vampire, she doesn’t need me.

The dogs still need you.

Shiloh: *Cries more*

Nyx doesn’t come home all night and ends up passing out from sun exposure -5.

He does finally comes home once he wakes up.

What the…why are you all burnt?

Zero: That’s my business

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! I refuse to believe this!

Why can’t he live happily in any universe?! 😦 -10

Shiloh: Now who’s the loser?

Zero: Really grandpa, my dad is dying and you’re gloating?

Shiloh: Damn straight, I hated the leech!

Nyx: You’ll pay for your words in the afterlife, Old Man.

Nyx: Don’t make me leave my children. They need me.

Grim: I am truly sorry but I’m only doing my job.

Nyx: Can’t you just bend the rules this once?

Grim: Unfortunately not

Grim: Anyway, you wouldn’t want to disappoint the young lady waiting for you, would you?

Nyx: Young lady?

Grim: She said her name was Niva…

Nyx: Take me to her now!

And with that my baby boy passes on. I swear this almost hurt worse than when he died in his original story.

Yuki is by far the worst hit by Nyx’s death.

Yuki: He can’t be dead grandpa! Not my daddy!

Shiloh: To be fair, he is better off dead

Yuki: How dare you?! It should’ve been you who died, not him!

Shiloh: I’m just telling the truth

Yuki: Screw you, Old man! Now I understand why my dad hated you.

I’ve got to admit I may have had a mini panic attack when Zuko started eating the Jelly Beans since the last Holly to touch this plant (Grace) died.

Oh for Pete’s sake… Just when I say don’t die Zuko’s jelly bean sets him on fire.

Whilst her youngest son is on fire Wren is getting a promotion at work.

Luckily Yuki’s around to put out her little brother before we lose another family member.

It came right down to the last few minutes on the moodlet. I honestly thought he would die.

Zuko: Why couldn’t she have saved me before I got all burnt?

Yuki(Off screen): You’re just lucky I saved you at all, you ungrateful brat!

*Sigh*  Even after nearly dying that still doesn’t stop Zuko from eating from the jelly bean bush.

This boy is just asking to die, isn’t he?

Yep, he gets electrocuted after a few beans.

At this point I’m destined to lose all my Holly’s, aren’t I?

Shiloh is still taking care of the dogs since no one else does.

Red: Lower…lower….Ah, just the right spot. Thank you Minion

Shiloh: I hate my life!

Speaking of Minions; Zuko briefly turns into one after eating yet more jelly beans.

I haven’t seen a sim this obsessed with the jelly bean bush since Balboa Langurd.

Zuko did take a brief reprieve from bean eating to work out.

Zuko: Can’t have all those beans going to my hips now, can we?

I…suppose not I don't know smile

I looks like Zuko isn’t the only one who’s taken to working out.

Zero: Can’t have my usurping little brother looking better than me.

Yuki: …and then I went to grandpa but he said dad was better off dead

Zero: What did you expect? They hated each other

Yuki: I know…I just…I just wanted some compassion, that’s all.

Zero: Don’t cry Yuki, dad wouldn’t want you to be upset.

Yuki: You’re right, daddy would want me to be happy. I just miss him so much!

Zero: I know, I do too

Zero: *Broods for hours on what happens in the afterlife*

Wren: Dad Nyx hasn’t been home in a few days. Have you seen him?

Shiloh: I don’t know how to tell you this darling…

Yuki: Oh, now you act compassionate *rolls eyes*

Shiloh:…He’s dead.

Yuki: And you couldn’t be happier about it

Wren: He’s lying. Nyx will be home any minute now, I know it.

Hamilton (Tyene’s son): Trick or treat!

Yuki: Isn’t it a little early for Halloween?

Hamilton: It’s never too early for Halloween

Yuki: Fair enough *gives out  eons old candy*

At the same time I get a pop-up that Minerva (Visenya’s eldest) is now a YA.

She is very pretty although she does tend to favour Visenya quite a bit.

She is given a quick make-over and saved so that she can be uploaded when the rest of her sibling as YA’s.

Shiloh: Do you know how famous I was? I demand respect!

Shiloh: What do you mean I am a ‘washed up has-been’? I will not tolerate this!

To take her mind of Nyx death I’m making Wren play the guitar since she’s almost maxed it.

Also, I hate it when a spouse dies and all the other does is cry. It makes me sad so this way I won’t have to see that.

Some good news in this otherwise dreary chapter; Zero gets himself a spot on the honor roll +5

Zuko: Hey dog, can you help me with my homework?

Voodoo: Sorry, I don’t speak moron

Zuko: Yuki can you help me with my homework?

Yuki: Sure, I ca…

Zero: Say yes and I will disown you as my sister

Yuki: Sorry little bro, you’ll have to figure this one out on your own

Zuko: Why won’t anyone help me?!

Yuki: What’s the deal with you and Zuko?

Zero: He tried to usurp my place as dad’s favourite boy

Yuki: Dad’s not here anymore

Zero: That may be true but the hatred still remains

Zero: *Imagines basketball hoop as Zuko’s face* This is for trying to take my dads love

It was his dad too

Zero: Shut up and let me be mad!

See, I told you that Wren was super close to maxing the guitar skill +5

Shiloh: Xhasca! I’m so glad you called me, I’ve been so lonely since you and Xanthe left.

Xhasca: Uh…sorry grandpa, I dialled the wrong number

Shiloh: *Sad face* Why doesn’t anyone want to talk to me anymore?

Moving on from the sadness that is Shiloh’s life to something much brighter; it’s time for Yuki’s birthday!

Wren: *Sniff* My baby girl is all grown up

Shiloh: Woo, go Yuki!! *to self* Maybe if I cheer load enough she’ll like me again

Yuki: You’re still not forgiven, Shiloh

Shiloh: Drats!

Just when I thought Yuki couldn’t get any more gorgeous, she goes and proves me completely wrong.

She rolled the International Super Spy LTW which is a little disappointing but whatever.

Her outfits as a teen were kind of monochromatic so I tried to add some colour to her new wardrobe.

The family has their first ever family meal together to celebrate Yuki’s birthday.

Suffice to say, it didn’t last long.

Yuki: I am not sitting beside this insensitive jerk!

Wren: What’s he done this time?

Yuki: He…

Zero: Nothing mum. It’s nothing important, Yuki’s just overreacting as usual.

Yuki: Don’t make me start hating you too Zero!

I think I’m going to leave them to their family squabbles. See you guys next time.

Haha, did you guys really think I would leave you without the results of the heir poll?

As you can see Dual Heirship won by more than half the votes so next chapter will be the beginning of Yuki and Zero’s reign.

Townie Updates:

Xanthe didn’t take long in getting herself a job after moving out.

Some of the Holly cousins got themselves into relationships.

As did Xhasca which I highly disapprove of since her new BF is Tyene’s son making them related. Ew, gross.

This is even more gross!

At least they finally came to their senses, even if they do have a kid on the way.

Chapter 7.10 – True Colours

Ha, I had a back up of the photos for this chapter still on my computer so take that photobucket!

I will get this chapter and the heir poll out tonight, even if it kills me.

G7 Ch10 P1

Yuki: Look into my eyes grandpa…

Shiloh: No, not this again

Yuki: Silence servant

Shiloh: As you command

You know, for a GOOD sim Yuki can be downright wicked when she wants to be

G7 Ch10 P2

Shiloh: And so the Greeks placed a huge Trojan horse outside the gates…

Yuki: That’s great grandpa but what does that have to do with the invention of the internet?

Shiloh: In my day the fireplace was the only source of light we had

Yuki: Gah, even under my hypnotism you are useless!

G7 Ch10 P3

It was probably at this point that I realized that the fixer-upper car was broken since the tools and stuff weren’t showing up when Sims worked on it. I did download the fix so after this chapter if anyone uses it the car should be fixed.

G7 Ch10 P4

Xhasca: *Sigh* Why is this crap always happening to me?

G7 Ch10 P5

Wren: Those god damn ungrateful kids wouldn’t be so quick to break stuff if they had to fix it!

Geez, it’s just a sink

Wren: That’s not the point!

G7 Ch10 P6

Wren: Put the perp’s neck here and I’ll show them never to break my stuff again

It’s just a sink!

G7 Ch10 P7

With Nyx’s faster vampire skilling he manages to max athletics +5

G7 Ch10 P8

Wren: You broke my sink, didn’t you?

Xhasca: I knew there was a reason you wanted to jam with me

G7 Ch10 P9

Yuki: Uh…who are you?

Yuki: Oh, hi Lysander…sure, I’ll go on a date with you.

Ah, my little girl’s away on her first date. She’s growing up so quick!

G7 Ch10 P10

Lysander: Yuki, over here!

Yuki: Um…are you Lysander?

Lysander: Yeah, we were in school together. I followed you here when you moved towns.

Yuki: Yeah, that’s not creepy or anything.

G7 Ch10 P11

Yuki: Any creepy thought you ever had of me will henceforth be erased from your mind

Lysander: But…

Yuki: No buts!

Lysander: I have no idea what you’re talking about

Yuki: That’s better

G7 Ch10 P12

Yuki: Can’t I not even go for a swim without you following me?

Lysander: Do you want me to drown myself at your pleasure?

Yuki: No! Just…stop following me

Lysander: As you wish

Suffice to say, Yuki’s date didn’t last too long and she came home soon after.

G7 Ch10 P13

While she was out on the ‘date’ however Zuko has decided to follow in his older sibling footsteps and start working out (ok, he’s dancing but that still counts…sort of).

G7 Ch10 P14

Zero: Stupid Xhasca! Why does she have to make everyone else clean for her instead of doing it herself?

She got you too, huh?

Zero: Duh! Why else would I willingly be cleaning?

G7 Ch10 P15

Luckily Zero was saved from the torture of cleaning but Yuki’s arrival home.

Zero: How did the date go?

Yuki: He was cute but a complete creeper

Zero: Aren’t they all?

G7 Ch10 P16

I completely forget Yuki is shy until she does stuff like this.

It makes her look even more adorable than she already was, if that is even possible.

G7 Ch10 P17

Zero: What is the meaning of this messed up thing we call life?

Rhaenys: Why are all my kids such weirdo’s?

G7 Ch10 P18

Yuki: Can you play ‘The Nutcracker’ Mum?

Wren: On the guitar?

Yuki: Sure, surely you can’t screw up that bad.

Wren: For that you can find your own source of ballet music!

G7 Ch10 P19

Yuki: What should I do Zero, that weirdo Lysander keeps calling me.

Zero: Should we sic dad on him?

Yuki: Not quite yet

G7 Ch10 P20

Prom is coming up and surprisingly Xhasca is the only one to nab herself a date.

G7 Ch10 P21

Nyx: There’s something I wanted to tell you Xanthe…

Xanthe: Go on

Nyx: I…I’m a vampire

Xanthe: No shit. Next you’ll be telling me Wren’s an alien.

G7 Ch10 P22

Nyx: That is your mother and you will address her as such.

Xanthe: I’ll address her as mum when she starts acting like one!

Nyx: Damn ungrateful brats. Should’ve shipped them off when we had the chance!

This argument resulted in Nyx and Xanthe becoming enemies which is only fitting since Xanthe is Shiloh’s favourite grandchild.

G7 Ch10 P23

Xhasca: I’ve just had the weirdest feeling that someone wished to get rid of me…

Don’t worry about it, it’s nothing.

Xhasca: …If you’re sure

G7 Ch10 P24

Visenya’s kids Luna, Ariana and Draco aged up so I have to get pictures of them obviously.

They are all so different and gorgeous!

I swear, I won’t be keeping up with the other spares kids as much as this but I just had to for Visenya and Winter’s kids. I might even save some of these kids for something else down the line.

G7 Ch10 P25

Yuki: It’s Zuko’s birthday. You coming?

Zero: I’d rather not

Yuki: Not sure that’s an option

Zero *grumbles*

G7 Ch10 P26

Zero: *Grumbles*

Yuki: At least pretend to be happy

Zero: Yay, go Zuko. Can this be over now?

G7 Ch10 P27

G7 Ch10 P28

Wow! He’s actually a lot cuter than I thought he’d be.

What was I thinking really, he’s Nyx and Wren’s kid, of course he’d be cute.

G7 Ch10 P29

Straight after Zuko’s birthday Wren rolled this wish.

I was so tempted to give in just this once but the kid would have no chance at heirship so I couldn’t.

G7 Ch10 P30

Zero: Stupid suck up! You’ll never be better than me so admit defeat now.

Zuko: What is your problem? I’m just washing the dishes.

Zero: You’re up to something, I can feel it in my bones!

G7 Ch10 P31

Noo Rhaenys!

Just a few hours after Zuko’s birthday Rhaenys dies at 98 (whilst Shiloh is still kicking at 100).

G7 Ch10 P32

She glitched whist going to talk to Grim so no hand shake or begging, just straight into the grave.

She was kind of useless near the end but I still loved her and am sad she’s gone.

G7 Ch10 P33

Zuko: I can’t believe she’s actually gone

Wren: I’m sure you’ll see her again soon

Zuko: Really not helping mum

G7 Ch10 P34 

Poor Shiloh, he isn’t taking his wife’s death well at all.

All he does is cry, it’s kind of heart-breaking.

G7 Ch10 P35

Xhasca: Why does school have to torture us with a crap ton of homework

Zero: Couldn’t say, mine’s is already done *Smug face*

Xhasca: *Grumbles* Stupid vampire powers

G7 Ch10 P36 

Wren: You complain about your brother again and you will end up in your very own grave

Xhasca: But I didn’t…

Xanthe: I’m outta here. i don’t want to end up like grandma

Xhasca: This family sucks!

G7 Ch10 P37

Nyx gets promoted to level 9.

Just one more to go for him to complete his LTW!

G7 Ch10 P38

Aw, Zero reminds me a lot of teenage Shiloh with his new obsession with the fireplace.

G7 Ch10 P39 

Wren: Aw, don’t be upset dad

Shiloh: She’s gone…

G7 Ch10 P40 

Wren: I know daddy but she wouldn’t want you to be this upset.

Shiloh: I…I guess you’re right. Thank you sweetheart.

Wren: Anything for you

G7 Ch10 P41

More miscellaneous skilling in the hallway whilst Zero and Nyx look on.

G7 Ch10 P42 

Shiloh: You’re mother would be proud of you sweetheart

Wren: I very much doubt that but thanks anyway

G7 Ch10 P43 

It’s prom time for the kids, good job Zuko aged up when he did.

Of course Zero has to go and ruin the picture of the kids before prom by crying *stupid mourning moodlet*.

G7 Ch10 P44

Zero: Quick driver, let’s book it before anyone else can get in

Xhasca: You do realize that’s my twin, right?

Zero: Damn, I thought you were Yuki. On second thoughts you better wait.

Prom Highlights:

  • Unsurprisingly Yuki was named Prom Queen
  • Zero asked a classmate for a dance but got a drink in the face for the effort
  • Xhasca saw someone wearing the same dress as her (probably Xanthe tbh)
  • Zero broke the prom background whilst chasing his crush
  • Xanthe got caught checking out someone’s date which caused a fight to break out
  • Zuko asked his crush to dance but got turned down

G7 Ch10 P45 

Whilst the kids are at prom and Wren and Nyx are at work Shiloh is found playing in the sand pit.

He must feel lonely without Rhaenys around now. Damn, I just made myself sad.

G7 Ch10 P46 

Wren: So…uh…the Watcher wants me to ask you a question

Yuki: What question exactly?

Wren: Uh…what floats your boat

Yuki: Geez, you can’t just ask that!

Wren: Just answer and get this over with

Yuki: Gosh mum, I’m straight, now can this be over with?

Wren: Gladly

G7 Ch10 P47

Aren’t you a little young to be turning to alcohol?

Yuki: I need it to erase that conversation

It wasn’t that bad

Yuki: Says someone who’s never had to go through it.

G7 Ch10 P48 

Wren: So Zero, can I ask you a question…

Yuki: Good luck Zero, you’re gonna need it

G7 Ch10 P49

Wren did eventually get through all the needed conversations so I knew for potential spouses.

I’m actually pretty surprised that the majority of the kids are straight. I may need to modify my SP percentages again with the move. For now we’ll roll with this though.

Anyway, I’m going to end this here because the twins are literally hours away from becoming YA’s.

I’ll have the heir poll out momentarily so look out for that.

Townie Updates:

G7 Ch10 TU1

Tyene gave birth to her latest baby.

I think this makes 3 boys that the pair have now.

Chapter 7.9 – This is How I Die

It’s a little late but I hope you guys had a good Christmas if you celebrate and if you don’t then I hope you had a good day anyway.

Wren: Get your crap together, we’re going for a little drive

Yuki: There’s no need for that, I’ve not done anything!

Wren: What are you talking about? I’m teaching you how to drive

Yuki: Oh *relieved sigh*

Wren: So you just push that little pedal thing and it should work…

Yuki: Did anyone ever actually teach you how to drive?

Wren: No, but it seems pretty straight forward

Yuki: This is how I die, isn’t it?

Zero: Must…get strong…like…dad!

Shiloh: How dare you want to be like him

Zero: He’s my dad

Shiloh: No grandchild of mine will aspire to be a monster like him, got it?

Zero: *Sigh* Yes, grandpa

Zuko: Grandpa?

Shiloh: Yes, my boy?

Zuko: I think you should stop raining on Zero’s parade so much. He just wants to be like our father.

Shiloh: What did I do to deserve such disrespectful grandchildren?

Zero: He can’t tell me what to do! This’ll show him!

Yes, cause I’m sure drinking a blood pack in the kitchen, where he can’t even see you,  will really show him not to mess with you.

Yuki: Good news, I survived mum’s ‘driving lessons’.

Wren: Yes, my plans for world domination are finally in motion!

Yuki: Bad news, I think mum’s lost it and I think my brain has died of idiocy.

Yuki does manage to get home and sets about recharging her brain.

I wasn’t sure how that was going to work with her being a vampire as well as an alien so it’s good to see that she isn’t glitchy from it.

Wren: If you don’t let me win I’m divorcing you

Nyx: You’d never divorce me and we both know it *Smirk*

Wren: Damn, you’ve got me there

It always seems to be the dishwasher that breaks.

Luckily it’s no problem for Wren to fix with her alien mind powers.

It seems Zero is very into exercising now.

Zero: Not really, I’m mostly doing it to annoy grandpa now

Nyx from another room: That’s my boy!

Have you all collectively decided just to piss Shiloh off today or something?

Yuki: What? No, why would I do that?

Well you are drinking blood…

Yuki: Oh, that. It’s tastes better to me now than food.

Fair enough, I suppose.

Have I mentioned before how pretty Yuki is because if I haven’t I really should.

She’s literally the prettiest sim ever born in my game imo.

Xanthe: Hey gramps, you should totally help me rig it so that I’m the next heir

Shiloh: I mean, you’re better than the demon’s spawns

Xanthe: That’s the nicest thing that anyone’s ever said to me!

Shiloh: Who’s a good doggie? *pets*

Red: Unhand me foul human

Shiloh: Why won’t you love me?

Yuki: Here’s a hint old man, it’s because you’re an ass! Now move so I can finish mopping.

Shiloh: Just for that I’m going to sit here all day

Yuki: *Eyeroll* Yep, you’re definitely an ass

Yuki: Look into my eyes

Shiloh: I don’t wanna…

Yuki: From now on you will do my bidding and be nice to my dad

Shiloh: What just happened? I feel oddly violated somehow.

Yuki: Hi grandpa

Shiloh: Hi sweetheart

Wow, it actually worked. I’m impressed Yuki.

Yuki: All in a days work.

Rhaenys: Are you okay Shiloh? You don’t seem like yourself

Shiloh: Don’t worry about it, I’m fine. Now I’m off to go find Nyx.

Rhaenys: Yep, there’s definitely something off here.

Shiloh: Oh shiny!

Uh, Yuki…I think something’s gone wrong with your mind control

Shiloh: Ow, why is the shiny so hot?

What are you looking so smug about?

Wren: My daughter is finally coming into her evil powers and I’m so proud of her

Uh, you do realize she’s good, right?

Wren: Preposterous! No child of mine and Nyx’s would ever dishonour us that way.

Whatever helps you sleep at night, I guess.

Wren: Good. Now that’s out of the way, it’s my birthday!

Really? That came by really fast.

Wren: Oh second thoughts I actually don’t want to get older

Sorry, there’s no way to go back now

Wren: No, I’m old and wrinkly now. Nyx won’t love me anymore *cries internally*

And what does a daddies girl do when she’s got a problem? Run straight to her dad of course.

Wren: I’m so old now dad.

Shiloh: It’s okay sweetheart, you’re just as beautiful as you always were.

Wren: I hope Nyx still thinks so too

For Wren’s birthday she got a new hair cut (which I’ve just realized I’ll need to change next time I’m in game ‘cause it’s the same as Tyene’s) but she got to keep all her outfits since I still like them. She also landed herself with a MLC. Lovely.

Whilst his mum is freaking out about being older Zero manages to get onto the honor roll +5

Zuko: Zero’s right, this stuff is hard.

Wait…is Zero making you do his homework for him?

Zuko: He says it’s too hard for him and that only I can do it because I’m smarter than him.

I don’t even know what I expected from Wren’s kids tbh.

Some miscellaneous skilling in the hallway.

This house has been around since Generation 5 but only now, nearly 3 gens on, is the seesaw finally getting discovered. What can I say, my Sims are kind of slow on the uptake.

Wren gets her first promotion since starting her new career.

Last chapter you got to see the majority of Visenya and Winter’s kids when they grew up but Severus decided to be awkward and not grow up at the same time so here he is. I’m pretty sure he is a Visenya clone with Winter’s hair.

Not to be outdone by his wife’s promotion Nyx also comes home with a promotion of his own.

He’s level 8 in the evil branch now, not long for his LTW.

It’s Zero’s teen birthday, a day I’ve been waiting on since he was born since their genetics really come out then.

Zero: I wish to be just like my dad when I grow up.

Shiloh: What did he just wish for?

Nyx: Just keep cheering Old Man, and acknowledge that you’ve lost

Shiloh: I will never…

Wren: Do as he says dad!

Look at my precious baby boy!

Zero: That’s right, I always knew you loved me

Yuki: You love him more than me now, don’t you?

I love you both…

Zero: …But she loves me more

Don’t listen to him Yuki, you’ll always be my favourite

Yuki: Ha, in you’re face Zero!

Zero: You taught Yuki how to drive, right mum?

Wren: Where’s this going?

Zero: Can you teach me?

Zero: So you’re fine if I crash and wreck the car?

Wren: I’d prefer you didn’t since this is my car

Zero: I make no promises

Wren: This was a mistake

Wow, Wren’s been super productive this chapter.

I’ve noticed that since he’s aged up Zuko seems to prefer being on his own instead of with his family which is kind of sad when you think about it.

Zuko: It’s so much more peaceful without them though.

Xanthe has also started using the basketball machine thing.

Xanthe: Why didn’t anyone tell me this was actually fun?

I don’t know but did anyone tell you that you match it perfectly?

Xanthe: Thanks for making me never want to touch it ever again!

Xhasca: Where did I go wrong? | I lost a friend | Somewhere along in the bitterness

Yuki: Can someone please stop her, she’s terrible?!

Yuki: Well if you won’t stop her I’ll just have to work out until I can’t hear her anymore.

I’m not sure that’s how it works

Yuki: Don’t try and talk ne out of it

Uh…sure, you be you.

Zero: Hey dad, look at my fangs *points to non-existent fangs*

Nyx: That’s uh…great son but if you want to see real fangs look at mine

Zero: Wow dad, they look so sharp and deadly.

Nyx: One day you’re will look like that too

It’s rare when it happened but I always love when my Sims play in the waterfall.

Nyx: How’ve you been Princess?

Yuki: I hypnotised Grandpa the other day, that was pretty great.

Nyx: I’ve never been so proud of you as I am right now.

This family has a seriously weird concept of ‘family bonding’.

Wren: How can I let him see me like this? I’m all old and wrinkly!

I, for one, can’t wait until Wren’s MLC runs out so she stops doing crap like this every 5 seconds.

Red: Let go of my town!

Zero: If you want it come and get it

Red: I will bite you!

Zero: *Drops toy* Geez, why doesn’t anyone know how to have fun around here?

I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really know what to do with Wren anymore so I’m just making her skill for now.

Xhasca: Wait mum, I’ll jam with you

Wren: Nah, I think I’m done now

Xhasca: Why doesn’t she want to spend time with me Sad smile

I really wish Zuko would get tired of that stupid IF.

Zuko: Do not listen to her Crêpe, you are the only person in my life that matters.

Red: I’m disappointed in you child. You showed so much more promise than this.

Zuko: What do you know, you’re just a dog!

Red: You don’t have to be so hurtful, you know.

I thought you didn’t like the taste of human food anymore?

Yuki: I put blood on the base instead of tomato sauce, it’s delicious.

Sounds gross but whatever floats your boat I guess.

Anyway, I’m going to leave it here for now. The next chapter should be out at some point tomorrow and then the heir poll!

Townie Updates:

I’m so disappointed that Aric and Cassidy didn’t stay together. I love Cassidy as a townie.

At least he didn’t stay single for long.

Oh no, not Sabine.

If she’s gone now that means Shiloh doesn’t have long left which makes me sad.

I sometimes forget how much younger than the rest of her generation Tyene is so it was slightly shocking to see her pregnant again until I realized that, duh, she’s not that much older than Wren.

Chapter 7.8 – Holy Smokes

Just 2 chapters left after this one until the heir poll!

I actually can’t believe I’ve gotten a whole generation out in just over 2 weeks. That has to be a new record for me or something!

This chapter literally starts seconds after the last one with the move so these are the kids first actions in the new town.

Xanthe goes to work on the fixer-upper car which hasn’t had much work since Brasher died.

Xanthe: Someone has to keep his legacy alive

Sure, cause a broken down old car was definitely Brasher’s legacy.

Xhasca doesn’t seem to care that we’re in a new town and goes straight to her guitar as usual.

Xhasca: The only thing that would make this guitar better is if it was violet

Yeah, well if you’re heir I might consider recolouring it for you.

Xhasca: Why you lazy…

Moving swiftly on, we have Zuko playing outside with his new IF.

He got it when we moved towns but I didn’t write it’s name down so it couldn’t have been that important.

Is it bad that I can’t really tell these two apart? I think the only difference between them is their eye colour.

I’m regretting my decision not to have Blue as heir more than ever now.

Yuki: You finally finished with that junk heap in the front yard?

Xanthe: Don’t sass me Brat, just wait until I beat your ass at this game

Yuki: Uh…it’s not a multiplayer

Xanthe: Fine, I’ll settle for beating your high score then

Yuki: No, not my high score!

Xhasca: Those two are stupid. Don’t they know it’s me that had the highest score on the arcade machines?

I wouldn’t let them know that if I were you.

Xhasca: Why? I could easily beat them with my eyes closed.

Shiloh: Ugh, why is he still here? Couldn’t we have left the vampire in the last town?

Zero: Please don’t talk about my dad Grandpa or the scary jellyfish monster might just come and eat you.

Shiloh: Nice try kid, but you’ll never stop me from hating your father.

Zuko: Let me out

Xanthe: It’s bed time baby brother

Zuko: No it ‘s not. Let me out!

Xanthe: Goodnight Zuko

*Sigh*

Even in the new town these two can’t stop fighting

Taking up a new instrument Xhasca?

Xhasca: Yeah, what of it?

Oh nothing…although maybe you should work on your guitar first before moving on?

Xhasca: You don’t control me, I’ll do whatever I want and you can’t stop me

Aw, look at my special little bubs in their semi-matching beds.

Shiloh: Rise and shine little Zuko.

Zuko: I want to sleep. Put me back to bed this instant!

Shiloh: No time for sleep. There is so much to teach you and so little time.

Zuko: I don’t want to learn…

Shiloh: But…but you’re my last hope of me having a non vampire heir.

Voodoo had her elder birthday and got a fancy new pink collar as a gift.

At least now I should be able to tell her apart from Red since red is collarless.

Since Wren hasn’t gone on an investigator case since she completed her LTW I decided it’s time for her to get a proper career in the new town (mostly ’cause I don’t know what to do with her).

She joins the culinary career since she already has maxed cooking skill.

I’m so glad that Rhaenys and Shiloh are still around.

They may not be my favourite couple of this legacy any more but they are still a very close second.

Zuko: Why are there teeth marks in this block already?

Uh…yeah, that’s probably from one of your older siblings.

Zuko: Why did you not warn me about this atrocity before I let it touch my delicate skin?!

What the…when did you get a bike?

Zero: Ah ha, that’s for me to know and to…

Wren: The Watcher told me that you’ve somehow acquired a new bike

Zero: Yeah, what of it?

Wren: I’m so proud of you!

Zero: So, you’ll help me with this stupid homework then?

Wren: I’ve got a better idea, why don’t we discuss world domination instead

Zero: Um…I don’t know

Wren: Fine, I’ll go talk to Zuko instead…

Zero: No mummy, talk to me about it! I’m listening!

Xanthe: What happened to the keyboard?

Xhasca: It just wasn’t me. It was far to conventional.

Xanthe: Sure, cause the Bass isn’t conventional or anything *eyeroll*

I’m actually genuinely shocked.

This is the first time that Nyx has been arrested since he joined the criminal career.

Ever since joining the culinary career Wren has taken to cooking every meal she eats.

Wren: Can’t have my co-workers thinking I’m a scrub now, can we?

Nyx spent all night in jail but the next morning instead of going home to sleep he picks the closest bench to take a nap on.

I honestly expected it to be Xhasca who cleaned up Wren’s cooking mess but surprisingly Xanthe got there first.

Xanthe: I may not be a neat freak like Xhasca but even I wouldn’t live with this filth.

Zuko’s IF: Come play with me Zuko, forever and ever and ever

Zuko: Thank you for the offer but I don’t think I will

Zuko’s IF: You will have to give in eventually. You are stuck with me for life.

Zuko: This feels like the start of a stupid horror story.

Wren: How’s my baby boy been?

Zuko: Terrible. The stupid IF is being even creepier than usual.

Wren: Do you want me to beat it up for you?

Zuko: No thank you, I think I can deal with a doll by myself

Wren: Oh well, I’m here if you ever change your mind.

Zero: I’m starving! This vast emptiness in my tummy will be the end of me, I am sure of it.

Yuki: Don’t be such a drama queen

Xhasca: Yeah, the kitchen is literally just across the hall

Zero: I’ll never make it!

Yuki: Better?

Zero: This is the best sustenance I have ever had

Yuki: You are such an idiot *eyeroll*

Despite being locked up in jail for the night Nyx still somehow comes home with a promotion.

Xanthe: Who’s the tickle monsters favourite? *tickles*

Zuko: Cease this humiliation…*giggles*…at once *giggles*

Shiloh: I love you dearly Xanthe but you need to stop playing with Zuko.

Xanthe: But he’s my brother

Shiloh: No, he is my last chance at a non vampire heir and you will not ruin it for me.

Wren: Stop being an idiot dad. Play with him all you want Xanthe.

Xanthe: Thanks mum

Some random paparazzi starts eating beans from the jelly bean bush, first time anyone has used it since Grace died.

Apparently Yuki’s decided to take up painting

Yuki: I was bored so I figured why now

That’s the exact reason I started this legacy in the first place

Yuki: Good for you, now let me get back to my art

Zero: Yeah, I’m just about to head to school

Pen pal: I’m so jealous, I’m stuck training my uh…dog, yeah dog, all day

Zero: Maybe I could help one day

Pen Pal: Eh, we’ll see

Didn’t anyone ever warn you about stranger danger Zero?

Zero: Why would they have to, my dad will protect me.

Yuki: So…are you going to meet this boy?

Zero: i don’t know, he doesn’t seem to want to be my friend

Yuki: I’m sure you’re just being over dramatic *draws scissors* haha, I win!

Zero: No fair, you cheated!

Yuki: I did not

Zero: Yes you did, you distracted me!

Yuki:…He’s such a sore loser

Nyx: Do you want me to get him to do your chores for the week, Princess?

Yuki: If you think that’s for the best, daddy.

Zero: Stupid Yuki. Why did she have to go be a snitch *grumbles*

Zuko: I’d hate to be you right now Brother

Zero: Shut up, stupid!

Zuko: Good comeback *laughs*

Zero: If my dad asks you’ll tell him I finished all of the chores, right grandpa?

Shiloh: Anything to spite your father is a-okay with me.

I got pop-ups that all but one of Visenya and Winter’s kids had aged up so I had to go have a look.

Draco continues to be downright adorable and Minerva actually looks less like Visenya than I’d initially thought. She’s still really similar but eyes eye and lip shape is different.

And of course the twins, Luna and Ariana, continue to be the twiniest twins to ever twin.

I got back from checking on Visenya’s kids just in time to see Yuki and Zuko’s birthdays.

Generic family celebration photo is generic.

What isn’t generic though is how absolutely stunning Yuki is.

How did my weirdo Sims ever make a kid as beautiful as her?

Zuko goes up next and, although I don’t quite love him as much as Yuki, he’s still precious.

Zuko: Thank you for telling me how you really feel.

I can’t help it, have you seen Yuki?!

Anyway, I’m going to leave it here. I’m taking a break from posting for Christmas but the next chapter should be up 26th and the last chapter and heir poll the 27th which is right on schedule.

Townie Update:

Since it’s a new town there was only one important townie update.

These will probably eventually come to a stop unless I add more of your guys Sims to this town since I don’t think anybody is interested in EA townies.

Chapter 7.7 – Sims 3 Has Stopped Working

Hey guys. If this chapter sucks it’s because I’m really not feeling like writing it right now since it’s so close to Christmas and I’ve realized that my life sucks but a schedule is a schedule so it’s got to be done, whether I want to or not.  I hope it’s somewhat enjoyable for you guys to read at least.

I think this is the first time that Nyx and Xanthe have ever properly interacted with each other.

Xanthe: You’re a poor substitute for my real dad

Nyx: Who cares, that loser is long dead

Nyx: Oh no Zero, it’s a rival clan come to take your throne!

Zero: Noooo! Daddy, you’ll protect me, right?

Nyx: Always

Now that Wren has completed her LTW I think it’s time to move towns since this one keeps crashing my game. I’m gonna wait until Wren’s latest baby is born though.

I’m going to be taking Visenya and her family  but I think I’ll leave Uxie and her kids behind since I think it’s her kids that are glitching out this town.

I used Yuki’s one child action to play peek-a-boo with Zero because I want them to be friends and really, what else am I going to use it for?

These two have to be by far my favourite ever Holly’s (no offence to the last 7 generations).

I mean, how can you look at them and not love them Red heart

Speaking of Holly kids, Minerva, Visenya’s eldest, came home after school with one of the twins.

Like I thought when she was a toddler, she’s turning out a lot like Visenya.

Minerva: Mmm, this pie is delicious. Maybe I should come here more often.

Xhasca: Come help us with this homework or I’ll make sure you never get invited over again

Minerva: Why of all people did she need to be my cousin?!

Wren: Hi Minnie, how’s your mum? Still crying about not being heir?

Minerva: Cut the small talk aunt Wren, your daughter is trash!

Wren: Which one?

Minerva: The purple one

Wren: Uh…?

Minerva: *eyeroll* Xhasca

Wren: Ah, yeah you’re right, she does suck.

Wren definitely has her favourite daughter it would seem since she wished to be best friends with Yuki but has never rolled a single interaction related wish for the twins.

The twins don’t seem to let their mother’s lack of affection stop them from earning me points at least +10

Xhasca: What stupid thing are you up to this time Yuki?

Yuki: Just making sure no monsters are going to eat you during the night

Xhasca: I hope they eat you!

I do have to admit, the twins are sort of adorable.

Xhasca: You’re paying attention to me! You’re actually paying attention to me!

Yeah, no, moving on

Xhasca: Aw, no fair

Red:

Wren: You sunova…

Having some problems with this labour?

Wren: I’ll show you problems in a minute!!!

She gives birth to the final member of Gen 8, a little boy named Zuko +5 (yes, I know he shouldn’t be a ‘Z’ but I couldn’t be bothered starting a new naming theme for 1 kid).

Weirdly Zuko is completely human with no trace of vampire or alien. He’s the first human to be born into this family in 4 generations.

Did you hear Zero, you have a new baby brother

Zero: No! No brother! I’m special because I’m the only boy!

You’re still special even if you have a brother

Zero: No, I refuse to accept this!

Whilst Wren was welcoming the last member of Gen8 I got a pop-up that Rhaenys had maxed her career thus completing her LTW +50

She took her sweet time with it but I’m glad she managed it before she died.

After getting the pop-up I went in search of Rhaenys.

I found her all the way across town jogging by the side of a road.

I don’t know how she got there or why she’s there but okay then…

Also across town Visenya gives birth to her latest baby too, a little boy named Draco (trust the one to be named after a white hair person to be the only kid born without white hair). I didn’t get a picture of the pop-up so I went to check on him and found him as a toddler. I think Draco has to be my favourite of Visenya and Winter’s kids so far, he’s so precious!

I also managed to nab a picture of Severus (Visenya’s eldest son) as a child.

Seeing Visenya’s kids kind of make me wish that she’d been heir but I’m happy with Wren’s kids.

Wren: Can you tell me the exact co-ordinates for the nuclear bombs I’ve hidden around town?

Xhasca: You’ve did what now?

Wren: Uh…never mind, I forgot which child I was talking to.

It seems like the time has gone by so quickly but it’s already time for the pups adult birthdays.

Red: Wait for me *trips*

Blue: *Hangs head in shame* I can#t believe I’m related to her

I love them so much!

I wish I could kick past me though because when I played this I picked Red as heir but looking at this now I wish I’d picked Blue.

Blue: Sucks to be you, Loser!

Either way, since Blue isn’t heir she was moved in with Visenya and her family.

Shiloh: My perfect human grandson, please don’t let him taint you when you grow up

Still not over your feud with Nyx, I see

Shiloh: That feud will live as long as I do!

This also feels like it’s flown by but maybe that because I played it so quickly?

Anyway, it’s time for Zuko and Zero’s birthdays.

Zero: I can’t believe you said his name before mine!

Wren: Get over it, I love you both…

Zero: Yay!

Wren: Equally

Zero: Damn it!

Zuko goes first

I will admit I went into NRAAS play with genetics feature with him because he was a near clone.

Now he looks a little different and he’s now got Rhaenys skin, Nyx’s hair and a mix of Nyx and Wren’s eye colours.

Zero goes up next and is as adorable as ever!

Zero: I’m not talking to you anymore, you let Zuko go first!

It’s not my fault, it’s how the game works

Zero: I’m still blaming you!

Zuko: This best is magnificent and graceful, if only there was a name for such a majestic beast

It’s a horse Zuko

Zuko: No, that doesn’t sound right, not nearly majestic enough

*Sigh*

I don’t know what it is about Shiloh but all these kid are drawn to him like a magnet. They are all queued just to talk to him.

Shiloh: Yep, I still got it!

Xanthe: Hey grandpa, you’re still taking me to the theatre, right? I’ve been dying to go!

Zero: Hey, it’s my turn now, stop hogging him unworthy one

Yuki: How am I related to all these idiots again?

I’m kind of in awe, I’ve had a dressing up chest in every Holly house since the beginning, but Zero is the first to ever use it if I recall correctly.

Zero: I will devour anyone who stands in the way of me getting what I want

He is also developing quite an ego for a kid his age.

Wren: C’mon Zuko, you need to learn to walk for yourself. All this parenting stuff is boring.

Zuko: Promise you won’t drop me?

Wren: We’ll see

Zuko 0.o

Straight after Zero starts playing dress up Yuki dresses up too. Gah, I love these two so much!

Nyx: I can’t believe I created a human…an actual human

I know exactly how you feel Nyx, I’m still in shock myself

Nyx: You may not be a vampire kiddo but you’re still my son and I will protect you with my life

Nyx: So…we made a human…

Wren: *Laughs* Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s defective. Maybe we should send it back

Nyx: Nah, he’s a cool little dude

Wren: Whatever you say

Shiloh: I salute you for not turning evil yet

Zero: Uh…yeah, whatever you say Gramps

Elsewhere in the house, Rhaenys is trying her hand at teach Zuko to talk.

Rhaenys: It was your birthday yesterday. Can you say ‘Birthday’?

Zuko: What exactly does this buffoon think she is teaching me here?

Yuki: Mission control, this is space ranger Stardust. It appears I have met a four legged alien.

Red: I don’t care who you thinks I am, just keep scratching behind my ear like that.

Yuki: It appear that this creature can communicate. We must look into this further.

Xhasca puts her neat trait to use by making the unmade beds in the house.

This officially begins Xhasca’s cleaning spree which lasts a good few hours.

Xhasca: This house is filthy! Go find something and clean it!

Shiloh: Do I really have to?

Xhasca: Yes, yes you do.

Xhasca: Ugh, I can’t believe they choose to live like this. It’s disgusting.

Good thing they’ve got you around to make it all clean and tidy then, isn’t it?

Xhasca: They’d be ruined without me

I get a pop-up that Sabine’s twins Avery (red hair) and Aric (Blue hair) are now YA’s so of course I have to go take a picture of them.

It’s funny that the other parents hair colour takes after their other parent (e.g. Avery with his dads hair is a face clone of Sabine and the opposite for Aric).

Nyx comes home with another promotion. He’s Lv6 now.

It’s the twins teen birthdays.

Why does it feel like all these birthdays have come by so quickly this chapter?

Xanthe: Maybe because you refused to pay attention to us our entire childhood

That’s not true

Xhasca: It’s kinda true

Xhasca: I wish I had a better family

Xanthe: Hey, that was my wish!

The twins are so pretty even though they look a lot different from one another. They do share Brasher’s nose and Wren’s lip shape though.

I have to admit Xanthe is actually a lot prettier than I thought she would be.

With the twins aged up now I think it’s officially time to move towns.

Ok, so it was Uxie screwing up my game because every time I try to pack her and her family up my game crashes.
Because of that she and her family are left behind when they family makes the move to Hidden Springs (a town I’ve never used before).

That’s it for this chapter. I’m sorry if it sucked and I’m sorry it is out so late but it took me aged to write it since I really couldn’t be bothered. I’ll try to do better with tomorrow’s chapter.

Oh, I should also mention that I’ve finally uploaded Tysha, Uxie, Visenya and Wren on the downloads page.

Townie Updates:

I don’t even know why I included these townie updates ‘cause none of these Sims made the move.

I did take Tyene and her family though because I’m curious about what her children will look like.

Chapter 7.6 – Red, Blue and Yellow

I don’t even have an intro for this since the last chapter was literally posted earlier today so let’s just start the chapter.

For some reason Yuki’s eyes have started glowing which they shouldn’t because of my override.

Wren: It just shows how powerful she is

Powerful? She’s a toddler.

Wren: So? She and Zero will be the most powerful beings to walk the earth.

You know you have 2 other children too, right?

Wren: They don’t matter. Only Yuki and Zero matter.

While I don’t quite agree with Wren that the twins don’t matter I really wouldn’t mind if these two really did take over the world.

I almost missed Voodoo going into labour. She gave birth to 3 female pups.

I see the days of having exclusively male dog heirs are well and truly over.

In Order the pups are called Red, Blue and Yellow (No I wasn’t playing Pokémon when this was played, why’d you ask Laughing out loud)

Because she was born with the base dog shape (like 1 pup every generation) Yellow had no chance of being heir so she was aged up immediately and moved in with Uxie and her family.

Xanthe: Grandpa, what did you mean when you said you could’ve been my parent?

Rhaenys: Yes Shiloh,  what did you mean by that?

Shiloh: Eh…uh…I uh…meant that I wished I was your parent. Yeah, that’s what I meant.

Rhaenys: Nice save, idiot!

Aw, look at little Blue gnawing on that massive bone. It’s almost as big as she is.

Rhaenys is still proving that she is excellent with the children by autonomously teaching Zero to walk.

Zero isn’t exactly as happy about this situation as I am though.

Rhaenys: Why won’t he stop crying?

Zero: I want my daddy!

Rhaenys also takes on teaching Zero to talk. All this happens within a few sim hours btw. Go Rhaenys!

Rhaenys: Zero can you say Grandma?

Zero: No, want daddy

Rhaenys: I officially give up with this kid!

Whilst her parents are taking care of her kids Wren is out getting an investigators award from City Hall.

Xanthe: Can you play quieter while I figure out what Grandpa really meant when he said he could be our parent.

Xhasca: *eyeroll* Just let it go, it’s probably unimportant.

Xanthe: It’s important to me

Xhasca: Whatever *Plays louder*

Xanthe: You understand why I want to know, right Tinsel?

Xanthe: No? Even you don’t understand?

The twins both have IF’s but only Xanthe has touched hers yet. They won’t be made real this time though.

Shiloh: …And these are my wonderful grandchildren

Xhasca: I’m literally one of those grandchildren Grandpa

Shiloh: No, my grandchildren are tiny little tots in their cribs.

Xhasca: He’s finally lost it, hasn’t he?

I’m really starting to think Shiloh’s going senile in his old age.

Even though she thinks he’s lost it that doesn’t stop Xhasca from smacking Shiloh around with a pillow.

Ah, family love at it’s best Laughing out loud

Zero: What’s the point in this?

You need to be able to use it to be a big boy

Zero: I don’t want to be a big boy, it’s stupid.

Um…Ah, your dad wants you to use it.

Zero: If daddy wants me to use it then it can’t be that stupid.

I kind of think I’ve taken way to many pictures of toddler Yuki. Oops.

Welp, there goes my plans for Zero to be the last kid this generation.

1 more is definitely the last though, even if she wishes for more after that.

Wren: Did you hear that Nyx, we’ve been granted another child.

Nyx: Why when the 2 we have are sufficient enough?

Wren: Our children will one day take over this earth, my love.

Nyx: I like the way you think.

Speaking of Nyx, he managed to snag himself another promotion.

I’m pretty sure Xhasca is the first of the kids to realize there are puppies in the house…

…She’s also the first of the kids this generation to fail -5

Lookit my little puppers sleeping in the hallway with their mum.

Finally! This LTW literally took forever (not really but it was so boring it felt like it) +40

This is the first time I’ve completed this LTW if you couldn’t tell and I don’t have any plans to revisit it any time soon.

Wren: I’m free! I’m finally free again!

Not really, you’re still heir

Wren: You had to go ruin my happiness, didn’t you?

That’s what I’m here for.

Xanthe: Yeehaw! C’mon Midnight, faster!

You’re literally riding a cat

Xanthe: So, she’s my trusty familiar

You’re not a witch

Xanthe: Why’d you have to go spoil my fun?

Funny, your mum asked me exactly the same question

What’s up with you Zero?

Zero: Where’s my daddy? I want my daddy?!

Nyx: Don’t worry I’m here

Zero: Yay! Daddy!

I see someone definitely has a favourite parent

Nyx: Why wouldn’t I be his favourite parent? I’m the best parent there is

I…I actually can’t fault you on your parenting skills so for once I have no comeback

It seems Xhasca isn’t content with just playing guitar so she’s also taken up painting.

Wren: Oh, would you look at that, I’m pregnant again

Xanthe: Oh great, another kid that’ll be treated better than me.

Wren: Just be thankful I didn’t send you to live with my sister after your father’s ‘accident’

Xanthe: Accident? You locked him in a pool and waited on him drowning

Wren: So?

Wren almost immediately goes to tell Nyx of her latest pregnancy.

Rhaenys: Did you hear that Wren’s pregnant again?

Shiloh: This is terrible, she shouldn’t be with him let alone having his children!

Rhaenys: It’s her decision and she is happy so leave her be

Shiloh: But he’s wrong for her…

Rhaenys: You were wrong for me but here we are

Shiloh: *Grumbles* I still don’t like him

This is the first time that I can recall Wren restoring her brain power since becoming heir.

Xhasca: With this brick I could start building a mansion for me, Xanthe, Grandma and Grandpa.

What about your mum, Nyx and your little siblings?

Xhasca: Nah, they can stay here and be happy without us.

It’s Yuki’s birthday and of course her proud daddy is the one to take her to her cake.

Shiloh: Woo Yuki! *to self* please remain sweet and innocent

Xhasca: How come she gets all the attention?

Wren: Stop complaining or you’ll go live with Uxie too

Xhasca: Too?

Xanthe: I’d listen to her. She’s being deadly serious.

Sparkle time!

Oh My Gosh! How can one sim be so frickin’ adorable?!

Yuki: *Waves shyly*

Gah, my heart can’t take all this cute!

The first thing she does as a child is play games on the computer.

Wren: Come here Zero. Mummy loves you even if I haven’t spent much time with you.

Zero: Love you to mummy

I do love Zero, despite how much attention I spend on Yuki.

Zero: It’s ‘Kay, I have my blocks.

Since Wren is basically free now I’ve set her to mastering the cooking skill since she already had 5 skill points. She maxed it within no time +5

Shiloh: Urge to kill rising

Rhaenys: Remember what I told you before; it’s her choice

Shiloh: But…but…

Rhaenys: Shiloh!

It seems Shiloh is still having a hard time letting go of his hate of Nyx being with Wren.

Nyx: I can’t wait to meet you little one

Wren: I just can’t wait until it stops kicking my bladder constantly

This hot tub so rarely gets used that I almost forgot that they had one.

I do love the pictures you get when they cuddle in the hot tub though, I always have.

It must be twin season because both Visenya and Uxie give birth to twins.

I hope that doesn’t signify that Wren’s gonna have twins too.

I was curious so I went to check up on Luna and Ariana.

Surprisingly, they are identical so far and, just like their big brother Severus, they look more like Visenya.

And since I checked up on Visenya’s twins I figured I should check up on Uxie’s too.

Unfortunately Uxie’s twins are pretty glitchy but they do look a lot like Uxie.

That’s it for this chapter, I’ll hopefully have another out tomorrow though.

Townie Updates:

It seems that the baby boom in town is well and truly underway.

Geez guys, don’t you ever stop?!

Thistle and Max are also expecting a child together.

I can’t even remember if this is their first together or not.

And lastly, another child is on the way for Tyene and her husband.

This is their second child together.

Chapter 7.5 – The Bloody Rose

So apparently I can’t even stick to my own schedule for uploading, no surprise there then.

I guess I’ve just made more work for myself for today since I’ll need to post 2 chapters today instead of 1.

Wren: So, what’s the case?

Yellowshirt: I don’t have one, I just wanted an excuse to stare at you.

Wren: Ugh, why is everyone in this town so weird?!

Rhaenys: Yuki come to grandma

Yuki: Do I  have to?

Rhaenys: C’mon Yuki, it’ll be fun

Yuki: Nope, Yuki out! *Walks in opposite direction*

Yuki did eventually manage to learn to walk, after which Wren rolled this wish.

It’s a good this she’s already pregnant then, isn’t it.

Wren: Just admit you took the wallet and I can leave

Pagan: I’m not a thief, just as your mother.

Wren: Just cause you’re her cousin doesn’t mean I won’t whoop your ass if you don’t admit you took it.

Pagan: But I didn’t do it…

Wren: Don’t say I didn’t give you fair warning.

Pagan: Owww…I still didn’t do it though…

Pagan: My body hurts all over

Wren: Tell me now!

Pagan: Fine, I didn’t take it but my friend Claire did.

Wren: That’s all I needed to know.

Almost straight after leaving Pagan’s house Wren pops with her latest pregnancy.

Wren: I can’t wait to let your daddy know that he’s going to have another perfect heir contender.

Wren *Barfs* Ugh, why must you forsake me like this, my child?

Not so perfect now, are they?

Wren: Shut up!

Some good did come of this whole little escapade though; Wren maxed her career +10.

She’s also at about 30/35 cases now so not long for her LTW!

When Wren comes home she calls up the pound to adopt a mate for Voodoo since Voodoo is nearly an elder and I don’t quite want the Dog part of the legacy to end yet.

Wren: I don’t care what breed it is just give me the more badass looking dog you have.

*Eyeroll* Yeah, cause I’m sure that’ll work out perfectly.

For being a sim with almost all negative traits Nyx’s wishes are all for his daughter which is so sweet.

Yuki: Mummy look at me, I found a rabbit

Wren: That’s great Yuki but mummy’s busy right now.

Yuki: Okay mummy, I’ll be quiet.

Yuki: See, I can be quiet and stealthy

Aww, how can anyone not absolutely adore Yuki?

I’d like to point out here that I didn’t even know elders could use canes like this.

Shiloh: I’m gonna beat that lousy vampire with it and finally show him who’s boss.

Uh…yeah, good luck with that. I’m sure Nyx will stand still and let you do exactly that.

Oh, who might you be, strange dog?

Strange dog: I’m your new dog, Scout.

Not exactly badass like Wren wanted but I suppose you’ll do. Now go meet your future wife.

Scout: My future what?!

Scout: Is this my future wife?

Voodoo: I don’t want to marry him, he’s as big as a horse!

Tough, you’re both near elder and I want puppies so get to it!

Scout: Someone left this strange child on the floor.

Damn it Shiloh, she’s meant to sleep in a crib not on the floor.

Scout: It’s on the floor so that means I can have it as a chew toy, right?

No, definitely not. You keep those teeth away from my potential heirs!

Xanthe: Someone feed me, I’m starving!

Shiloh: Hold on, I’m coming

Xanthe: Not fast enough, Old Man. I’m going to die of starvation before you get here!

I’m happy to report Shiloh did eventually get to Xanthe and she didn’t die of starvation Laughing out loud

Xanthe: It was close

Yuki: Yeah, sure it was

Nyx hasn’t had much screen time this chapter but that’s because he’s been working on getting his next promotion.

And what does the big, bad, criminal vampire do when he comes home? Sits down with his daughter to teach her to speak, of course Red heart

Nyx: Can you say ‘bloodbag’ Princess?

Yuki: Grandpa Shiloh says that’s a bad word daddy

Nyx: I’ll show your grandpa a proper bad word!

Yuki: I love you daddy

Nyx: I love you too Princess

Nyx is such a good dad and it makes me regret not giving him a chance at this in his proper story.

Yuki is so adorable, enough said.

Scout is another destructive dog, destroying everything in his path.

Wren has to come home solely to tell him off so he’ll stop.

Wren: Keep up destroying my house and you’ll be back in that shelter quicker than you can blink.

Scout: I’ll never make it in there, not again

Wren: Don’t wreck my stuff then and it won’t happen

Straight after telling Scout off Wren is back out to work, this time on a stakeout in the park.

Wren: That kid looks suspiciously like my great uncle Demir

No shit, that’s because it’s his grandson (Tyene’s eldest son Hamilton).

I feel like I haven’t been taking nearly enough pictures of Xanthe or Xhasca.

Xanthe: It’s because you prefer Yuki, right?

No, never…*Shifty eyes*

Way to go Rhaenys! I actually doubted she’d ever max this skill tbh +5

Yuki: You’re the best daddy ever

Nyx: And you’re the best little Princess a daddy could ask for

Shiloh: Drats, I finally thought I’d turned her against him!

Nyx: Mess with my family again, Old Man, and you won’t live another day!

Yep, I definitely didn’t take enough pictures of Xanthe and Xhasca (Mostly Xhasca though).

Speaking of Xhasca and Xanthe, it’s time for their birthdays. It’s also Rhaenys but she’s not as important.

Hopefully as children I remembered to get more pictures of them.

It doesn’t really surprise me that it’s the grandparents that take the twins to their cakes since neither Nyx or Wren really spent much time with them.

I’m actually liking how the twins are turning out

They look similar to each other but they aren’t identical which I really like.

Xhasca: Smash! Destroy! Obliterate!

Ok then, I’ll leave you to your destruction.

Not everything’s about destruction with Xhasca though.

She does take it upon herself to clean up Scout’s numerous pee puddles which is super helpful.

Xanthe: Can you shut that screaming brat up, I’m trying to sleep!!!

Nyx: You may be my wife’s kid but you ever speak about my daughter like that again and you will regret it!

Wren: Hi Xanthe

Xhasca: I’m Xhasca mum

Wren: Oh, right. Anyway, I’m having another baby

Xhasca: Really, I couldn’t tell with your massive baby bump *eyeroll*

Wren: Touch my belly and feel the power of one of your replacements.

Xhasca: I really don’t want to

Wren: Touch my belly now!

Xhasca: Ugh, fine!

Xanthe: Why couldn’t you have been my parent Grandpa?

Shiloh: I could’ve actually but that’s another story altogether

Xanthe 0.o

Short story; Scout’s constant peeing over the house was really annoying me and since he’d done his job in making Voodoo pregnant I moved him out to live with Visenya.

Xhasca proves that she can do things other than cleaning as she takes after her aunts in taking up the guitar as a child.

Rhaenys birthday also rolls around when it automatically triggers.

Rhaenys: Yay, it’s my birthday!

Xhasca: Yay Grandma!

Rhaenys: Wait…this isn’t what I wanted. I’m all wrinkly now!

The twins had no problem in finding their new ‘big girl’ beds.

At around the same time I got a pop-up that Visenya’s second child Severus aged up so I had to go check him out. It isn’t a great picture, even after editing, because it was really dark outside and he was found outside in the snow but so far he looks a lot like Visenya.

Speaking of babies; whilst working a case Wren goes into labour.

Of course she is sent home immediately to have the baby.

She gives birth to a single baby boy named Zero. Zero, like Yuki, is a vampire with alien genes +5

Like his older sister Yuki Zero was named after a character from the Vampire Knight anime; Zero Kiryu.

Yes, the chapters title does come from Zero’s gun in the anime; The Bloody Rose.

I was kind of antsy to know what Zero looked like after Yuki’s sheer adorableness so he was aged up immediately. All I can say is that he did not disappoint. He is completely adorable!

That is where I’m going to leave it for this chapter. I should have another up later today which should put me back on schedule (maybe).

Townie Updates:

Yup, Uxie is definitely serious about this relationship. I wish they’d have biological kid though instead of adopting.

And apparently Sabine’s son Aric is gay.

I’m glad I changed my SP setting for higher chance of Gay and Bi townies now since before none of them where anything but straight.
