With Nat taken care of, Nade went upstairs to welcome their new baby, Mamoru! Since I’m switching up my heir rules, if she doesn’t have another child that’s a boy, he’ll be the next heir. (Alternating genders, of course.)
Time to phone the relatives and give them the good news! (Off topic, don’t you think you need a new dresser, Nade? Pretty sure you’ve had it for several generations…)
She was very tired after giving birth, NATURALLY, so she went back to sleep. When she woke up, she made herself some breakfast and maxed out cooking! Way to go, girl!
Of course, the joy of a new baby and skills getting maxed wouldn’t last very long. Dani left the world in almost the same spot her late husband, Tachi, did. Don’t look so glum!
Grimmy, by this point, doesn’t bother them as much as he used to. He pops in, does his thing, and leaves.
Nade and Maddox were pretty bummed about Dani’s death but Ren didn’t even seem to realize his mother had died. He was at school when it happened. I guess it’s better this way; he won’t be distracted and he can keep on living. He aged into a young adult a few days later and met a gal from the neighborhood. Her name was Izumi (perfect!)
|What sort of face is that, Ren?|
The couple got together fairly quickly and moved out, leaving the family to fend for themselves.
However, Nade and Maddox were doing fine money wise. There seems to be a bug regarding bills and Nade’s had a letter in her inventory that she can’t open. They haven’t paid bills for at least two weeks. I keep forgetting about it… It might be a mod conflict but I can’t think of which it would be since I don’t mess with bill mods.
Time progressed without much happening of any interest. Nat did work on her drawings and Maddox did get a promotion in the business career. So that’s something. When Mamoru aged up I, again, crossed my fingers for him to roll a great trait…
He got hot-headed. REALLY?? So, let me see now. We’ve got a big sister that’s mean and she’ll probably mess with her younger brother who is hot-headed. I predict lots of tense moodlets in our future…
|They already look so happy…|
At this time, I took a peek into Maddox’s aspiration. OOPS! They needed one more child for him to reach the top of his aspiration. They got to work…
More time passed and it came time for Nade to give birth. She’s been too impatient for the hospital these last two kids and it’s all for the better. This way she can be super comfortable.
She had another girl! They named her Masumi.
Mamoru, on he other hand, was still working on his whiz kid aspiration. He’s doing pretty well but not as well as his big sister.
Soon it came time for Masumi to age up into a child. Her fashion sense was so weird and I loved it! She reminded me a little bit of Michiru with her weird outfits.
I rolled for her traits and… SHE ROLLED EVIL. Of all the traits to roll…
And thus begins the Troubled Generation…
(Author’s Note: I’ve been watching a lot of Bob’s Burgers lately and Masumi’s hat + evil personality made me think of Louise so I made the hat carry over to ALL of her outfits in homage.)
