I was excited to see you had an update today.

Spoiler:
I don't blame you for moving Jack and his twins out until childhood. Raising the triplets was difficult. They are children now too but I haven't posted that yet. Dylan's reply to Jacob was great. I am amused by his understanding of what being a 3 might be.


This was a brilliant chapter! I loved it.

SimCave- Thank you so much for your usual kindness! Always a pleasure to hear from you!

Spoiler:
Dyl is going to panic when he finds out what a 3 is, haha!


Your CEA is one of my favourite stories to follow ATM, I love all the hard work you put into it!

How do I keep missing updates? Possibly the time I login to boolprop I guess

Spoiler:
A book does seem like a good way to keep track of everything. A memoir of sorts maybe of Dylan's adventures? He could always just pass it down to his kids.

Haha children shows can get pretty annoying when you watch them on repeat. The kids never seem to get tired of them though.

I'm worried about this mystery disease. Poor Olivia!

I'm happy Jack has moved back in and that Olivia is feeling better!

I wonder if the alien kids still have to wear disguises to keep safe at school?

IT'S MA BOI!!!!

Great updates, as always. I loved Eli's pouty face!

[Note to others - spoilers for The Pries Misadventures below!]

Spoiler:
Sorry if the whole "Isaac has six kids" thing messes up your timeline. I generally consider crossover stuff as taking place in parallel universes, anyway... like when Myron Miskin fathered a child in someone's 100 Baby Challenge. If you want to try writing them in, then I commend you.

108sims- Thank you so much as always for your kindness and feedback!

Spoiler:
Yeah, lately has been uneventful in the games really, other than everyone peeing themselves 24/7. And I imagine Jack and Dyl would let the kids have no disguise at home, but for school would make them just to help prevent bullying. They want their kids to be proud of themselves, but also they don't want them to be hurt.


bookloverblue- Yes indeedy, Isaac Pries will hopefully be appearing a fair bit depending on where Ollie's side of the plot goes.

Spoiler:
You have this magical ability to manage many characters well and I love it! Sadly, I do not, and I like the idea of parallel universes since it doesn't mess with your own stories' canon that way... so what I'll probably do is have it the other three are all off doing their own thing, hence why they're not seen. I like to think in this universe Isaac didn't have any children and instead focused on solving the mystery his father chased for years.


Thanks for all the support guys!

Wow. This chapter was incredible.

Spoiler:
I'm so thrilled that Ollie told Dylan the truth. What a crazy truth it was too. I loved the connection I saw in the mom to what he could be seeing in Strangerville. You have a great way of telling stories.

Spoiler:
I like that Dylan's father was a scientist too. He's unknowingly following in his father's footsteps.

I like how you tied in what happened with their mother with the Strangerville mystery.

I understand why Ollie didn't want to scare Dylan with the truth, but I'm not sure that Dylan will see it that way.

Thank you both so much ^u^

Spoiler:
Yeah, I didn’t actually see it that way in that Dylan is unknowingly following in his father’s footsteps. I’m glad you guys liked the reveal!

Great update!

Spoiler:
I wonder if Dylan and Ollie's dad was abducted? They could have a half-alien half-sibling somewhere! And maybe THE Mother will lead them to THEIR mother...

Also, Isaac, put some Watcher-damn clothes on! Tsk tsk tsk, showing me up like that...

Poor Dylan. I hope he won't stay mad at Oliver for long. I do wonder what became of their father too.

Haha I love Jack's explanation of where babies come from.

Dylan freezing Jalisa is great. :lol:

Toilet's are very important for space. Hopefully Dylan's next trip goes better!

I loved Dylan's essay. He's absolutely right!

Maybe he should have sent it in a little earlier. :D
