Part Two
Part Three



Generation Two: Isaac

Side note, I've just seen the trailer for Strangerville where Erwin speaks English, and that voice... :heartbeat:

It's perfect for him. And he just got at least 142% times cuter.

Thanks for your comments, everyone!

Spoiler:
Yes, Erwin has his hands full, but I know he'll be one awesome father to ALL of his kids. Let's just hope the aliens leave off for a while, or he might end up raising a football team!

Plus, now that Isaac isn't the only child, I might have an heir poll to decide the challenge's successor.

It's going to be a while until the next update, but I couldn't keep you all in suspense any longer. Here is your successor to the colander crown!

Spoiler:

Also... you folks know how polls work, right? Because you either need an explanation, or Isaac is incredibly popular!

Isaac definitely screams "perfect heir to a Pries story", to be honest.

Heck yes! I've been looking forward to the next gen of the Pries family so hard! : D

Spoiler:
I have been so excited about my boi Isaac carrying on the challenge! I forgot to vote in the poll but I wanted him to become heir because he looks like the perfect geeky offshoot of his dad. B ^ ) I love all of the Pries kids so damn much.
Look at how adorable he looks inheriting the Glowing Crown of Government Paranoia. Proud of you Isaac! The shot of him hugging his dad melts my heart. TS4 hug animations are always the cutest things. Love the pic of him sparring- I feel like he'd get his geeky butt kicked any day, so he ought to get some practice in, whether it's fighting off space pirates, jocks, or the men in black suits! I bet Erwin Pries would only dream of being as ripped as his son is in that gym selfie, haha! I head-canon that Isaac is super awkward around compliments, or would rather people compliment his mind than his body. I feel like he'd be the most down-to-earth gym dude on Earth, bless his little cotton socks.

I really love the shots and your descriptions of Sixam as well, so beautiful and I love how exotic you make it sound compared to Earth. Your dialogue is always so perfectly written, never too detailed but never too simple. Loved the scene of him meeting Misty. I've never met a guy so down for bearing his girl's progeny. Gotta love him XD At least unlike Erwin, Isaac will know what to expect (no pun intended), with any luck, and at least being half-Sixamian will hopefully make the process a bit easier. Also Disguised!Misty's hair is so perfect. I wish my curls were that even! Can't wait to see Isaac and Misty's eventual babies :alien: I feel like Isaac's lovableness is on pars with Mordecai's now. I want to hug them both!


As always with your work, love this chapter!
It doesn't matter if it's not perfect, as long as you're having fun!

Merry Xmas Blue! Hope you had a good one! :christmas:

Spoiler:
I'm so glad that the Glowing Crown of Government Paranoia is now a thing! all Isaac needs is a bit of tinfoil and it's complete! Can't be letting the men in suits hear you pee! (Also thanks so much to linking to my blog, I appreciate that- funnily enough I've also done the same for you in a recent update of OFftS for a reason that you will enjoy. Small hint- it's a homage to this challenge. XD

OH my gosh look at old man Erwin, bless him! I want to hug him so bad. I laughed at the reference to Isaac in the delivery room with an improvement book. Just casually quietly reading it periodically peering down like, 'Yo, is it out yet?' and the midwife understandably weirded out. XD The look on Lincoln's face when he feels the baby just said 'Oh HELL no, I am NOT doing this, ever!' ALSO my poor boi Erwin, RIP ;n; My heart actually broke knowing he's dead, you've made him such a lovable character for me. I hope there are no surveillance cameras in Sim Heaven! And just before the baby too...poor Isaac. Every screenshot of Isaac and Misty together is just adorable. I love the two of them together. Not gonna lie he looks hilarious in his third trimester in a space suit. Is the baby going to need a little helmet too? :P Also the cute pic of the alien baby makes me realise just how amazing your new PC makes the graphics look!

I think that you've made a nice character choice with Isaac, the logical scientist, opening his mind to the potential spiritual world in the hopes that his father is watching him, bless him. Also the ending melted my heart! Yes, Isaac is still with us in ghost form! Best ghost grandaddy ever. Also I love your choice of name for the baby, Genesis is such a fitting name for the baby.

With your alien pregnancy headcanon- I remember at one point in TS4 a male Sim could get pregnant if he slept with a female alien? I think? I think they might have patched it , but either way ,I've always shared the same idea- since in TS4 all the Pollination Techs in my lineages seem to be female. I always imagine it'd be the same with an alien male as well. It's going to sound weird but I always imagine Sixamian females having some sort of ovipositor analog, like a wasp or something.


As always love your writing! Always exciting to see the Pries family grow!

*sniff* if it was his time to go, it was his time. But it was nice to see his ghost come comfort Genesis in the night.
