Title: The Dream

Bulldog: Ah what a life. Got a great wife, great kids. Live in a great neighborhood where a guy can spend all his time gazing in the telescope if he wants or he can have piles of kids and make piles of simoleons. He can take a helicopter back and forth to work, and folks who are aliens or vampires are not discrimated against. Heck, that is what Prosperity Falls is all about. That is why I like living here with my family. See that woman getting off the helicopter with me? She is a vampire, works where I work at the studio.

She didn't hang around too long, had to get going she said. The sunlight. But she had accepted my invite anyhow to come meet my family. (That's Roxanna Capehart). Well, I am getting where things are good. Makin' good money, have lots of great kids. Also was fortunate to hire great help to watch the kids when me and Maddy aren't here. Like the time Madelyn had put some food on to cook and then left the pot on the stove simmering, and left for work. When the fire erupted, both the nannies we had at the house put themselves between the kids and the fire.

I am at the top of my career. I am an Icon, like Tryce Capehart. We are thinkin' about doing a film together. But that is a another story. I'll get you up to speed with what has been goin' on around the house. I think last time I talked with you my twin daughters Lia and Melissa had just been born.

Well, they have grown up some. I know these aren't the most flattering pictures in the world, in fact Lia is mighty embarrased I am showing you her pee picture. And Melissa wanted me to tell you she has dyed her hair a darker brown. Her older sister Jeannie was experimenting around with hair color on her little sister and it turned out lighter than what the girls expeted. Oh Jeannie. The last time you saw her, she was just about the same age the twins are now.

Yep my Jeannie spent lots of time in the bathroom admiring herself.

Jeannie: Dad! You are embarrassing me!

Bulldog: Love you anyway honey. Hey, glad you came home this weekend while we are tellin' our story for this magazine.

Jeannie: Let me tell it dad. Okay? Oh, love you too. (lays a smacker on Bulldog's cheek). Well anyway, ok. I did have a birthday, and growin' up to teen and all I thought about boys more than I did when I was a kid. Mom and dad let me call a taxi and go to town by myself. I found this really cute guy at the clothing store. Gawd, but I don't remember his name. But we talked for a while and everything. Flirted a little. But the one that really turned me on was Heath DeLarosa. He gave me my first kiss.

His mom Frances DeLarosa owns a flower shop, the same one that Valentine Capehart used to work at. Lucky for me Valentine and Heath never got togther. Anyhow, Heath is adopted. I met Heath at school, he used to come over on the bus with me after class and hang out. I don't know what ever happened to him.

Bulldog: He is working his mother's shop. Wants to be a business man.

Jeannie: Really? Well, I can forget about him. I am in University now where there are plenty of fish in the sea.

Bulldog: Okay! *wipes brow* Jeannie honey I think it is time for you to head back to school. Here, take the car. (hands over keys).

Jeannie: Thanks dad. See you at Christmas. (lays another kiss on Bulldog's cheek).

Jeannie's birthday wasn't the only one that occured. Felicia grew up to be a beautiful young woman too. It was a mighty rough transition for her though. Had a hard time for a while getting used to it. Melissa was surprised with her big sister's sudden maturity.

With such a houseful of family, Felicia is finding it hard to study for college. Did I say such a houseful? I did. Not only was it Jeannie and Felicia's birthday, my beautiful wife Madelyn gave birth to another set of (natural) twins. Erin and Elijah had a real birth day.

That puts me and Madelyn at 6 kids now, with a 7th on the way.

They say 7 is a lucky number. I don't know. If I were a thinkin' man, and I believe I am a thinkin' man, I would say I have been pretty lucky already. Don't you?

Devious Plans


I am Quavi! Why, there is really no need to announce my identity. Why my name will be famous in the ranks of all Anotothians. My being is superior and my seed is stronger than that of my puny brother Zaed, who is in charge of our Mission. My brother only managed to produce 4 children for the Anotothian mission on earth.
Jati, Jenn, Lynn and Xuan. Me, *jabbing chest with thumb* I have produced 7! With more to come! Let me start here. The first thing I consider, is managing the financial aspect of my compound. Yes, I have made piles of simoleons that carry my army...er...children through training


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I have reached many milestones that make it possible for me bring much training material into our training room that make it possible for my children to study and train for the mission.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Every day we file out of the house in our uniforms like a true Army. The two babies that my wife Daphne produced at one time are now children. They must attend school so we don't appear suspect. All my children attend the same private school my father Timo found for us. It was an excellent learning institution. After all look how well I turned out! That is right. If only all my offspring could be as strong as I. These two girls, Joan and Jessica will grow up to be fine bearers for the Mission. Their wombs will produce many for our expansion an ultimate take over of Earth!

Mich Robbins

ZERO Outgoing Points...will reroll


My two sons Mich and Zaine have already stepped in and show promising signs of leadership and authority in the Plan. Mich works hard in the creativity department, which I am sure will bring the Mission some fantastic automation or machine to facilitate our means.

Zaine took a strong lead in the house the day the headmaster came to visit, and my human wife set a fire in the house. Zaine smartly kept Headmaster Korey outside in deep analytical conversation to keep him un awares of the kaos inside of the dwelling. BAH! It is a wonder. All my children carry Daphne's DNA and blood as well as mine. It is a wonderous they are growing up as Anatothian as they are! My wife Daphne is so...well...so...human sometimes. Through my father's notes, we know humans lack the logical thinking and training abilities Anotothians possess. How difficult is it to cook salmon?


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

My children will carry on training and conversations on their own without my lead. They are all aware of the Planet Anatoth, and how the King sent my father Timo forth to this planet to produce our race here. Oh the wonderful debates I hear whilst I am training and working with others in the compound! It is music to my Anotothian ears.

If there is a lapse in judgement, a human slip up, Zaine or Mich is quick to put the offender back in line. The girl Joan shows signs of human emotions, (she no doubt was passed these from her mother) but Mich was quick to show her The Way. My daugher Aazia who has left for University has found a human that makes money as well, a Malcom Landgrabbe. Mr. Landgrabbe is a pilliar in the human society in Bluewater and owns two businesses. She will be able to carry on in expansion, and may be able to get into local politics as well there! Mr. Landgrabbe owns a large home where Aazia will be able to keep many children.

My wife Daphne gave birth to another set of two children. At least she is being productive inbetween being emotional! This time she gave me two fine sons, Nacarlos and Nacarlius. Neither child exhibits my coloring, but they both carry it in their DNA. Nacarlos has my yellow hair, whom I got from my mother Meadow. But the boy Nacarlius, is special. This is where my seed has come through yet again. Even though the boy does not have the Anotothain golden skin he has our ears and eyes.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

When the boy grew up to toddler, it was evident. Daphne made a comment that his ears were deformed like mine. I quickly pointed out how his eyes were yellow like mine, but that he did have the skintone of my mother Meadow, and the brown hair of Daphne's father, his grandfather, Chevy Strickland. In Daphne's eyes that made him a fine son. He was a mixture of everyone in the bloodline. But I know better.....

I have spent extra time with this one as he seems to stand out amongst the rest of the children I have produced here in this house. Already at his young age he has engaged in intelligent discussions with me regarding our Mission. He is already laying out his plan for his contribution to the Mission. First he is aware that he must get retain a good education. I have assured him that I will see to it that he is placed in the best halls of learning on earth. Then he has planned out that he will take his time and make lots of friends to better infiltrate the humans.




Of course we have talked about Anatoth. We have already had meetings with Zaed and have determined Narcarlius will marry Jenny Trimble, the product of Shane Trimble's visit from Our People. Oh how deliciously grand this is. Our mission is marching on better than I would have ever dared hope.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

In the mean time, I carry on like nothing is different in front of my wife Daphne. For a human she is very sweet and unassuming. She has born all 7 children I have given her without one whimpering sound or one word of regret. I do not believe I could have married a better womb, er, human to further my Mission. But the time has come her womb will no longer give me children. It is old. It is time to move on to the second phase of my plan.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The Alien Joy Capehart has graduated from Sim State University and has moved into a house in Prosperity falls with my nephew Xuan. Xuan does not carry the Anotothian DNA, and has not one bone in his body that wishes to partake in the Mission. I have grandly offered my seed to Ms. Capehart for reproduction in the Mission, and she agreed to this in exchange for safe refuge. Xuan has agreed to marry her to make it look as though she is having his babies for the Mission when in reality her womb will be housing my children.

Until next time! I hope to tell you about more Anotothians on this earth!

Extremely Un-Anotothian - Quavi has food on his mind inbetween Daphne giving birth to two kids at once! Come on Quavi, get with the program!


Note - Narcarlius is special in the fact he is a third generation 'pointy ear'. It took 16 births in the third generation of pointy eared Sims for this genetic trait to show up again.

Roz narrating: Well lordy. Huney what all kin Ah tell yuh? Mah man Shane has done it. And done it agin. Well, Shane had installed an elevator in th'house here a while back and huney, he ended up takin' thet thang raght outta here. Yup, whilst his belly was huge with Alien babe, he got busy an' uninstalled thet thang.


Well, the reason wuz it kept smokin' and carryin' on, even after he fixed it. Mah good golly, he wuz upstairs on the second floor of the house, it wuz sparkin'. He got his tools raght out and commenced to bangin' on thet thang, Ah mean this house literally shook with his industrial prowess. He said he could only envision one of his family members gettin' in th' thang and plummeting down to our end. So. He got in it, and glided down to the first floor of the house, all safe and sound. An do you know thet thang still refused to stop smokin'? Huney Ah am telling you th' truth. It kept it up on th' downstairs switch. For a whole day! Shane said he could fahnd a thang wrong with it at 'tall, so he got raght on the phone and called the contractors. Yup, Ah now have me a beautiful staircase, and a third floor on th' house. Well, th' reason why he added th' third floor wuz 'cuz our family was expandin' at such a rapid rate! Oh huney! Ya'll won't believe it unless Ah lay it raght out fer ye! Listen to this!



'Member last tahm Ah talked to yuh Ah mentioned thet he had looked through thet 'scope outsahd, and thet he got tuh see the Aliens? Well, mah man Shane's belly just grew and grew, but thet shure didn't stop him from wonderin' around and showin' all the Sims in Prosperity Falls his beauty. No sirree. So we got to thinkin' his belly was biggern' mahn ever got when Ah was with Sheri or Robin.




Thet's raght...still wondered around nekkidern' a jaybird..well Huney of course thet didn't bother me a bit seein' his big ol' belly, but thet raght there just reinforced th' idea thet mamma was never gonna come an' visit. Huney Ah am gittin' on in age an' Ah jest shore do wish mah mamma would come along an' see mah house an' alla my kids in their home environment. Ah reckon she is all wrapped up in gittin' her foster home started. Well anyhow. Thet raght there is it. Mah momma won't visit 'cuz of Shane's beauty.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well anyhow in th' meantahm me and Shane's girls was growin' up. See, here is a picture of mah Robin all growed up into a chile. Ain't Robin jest th' most beautiful thang yuh have ever seen? 'Course ah am not prejudicial a'tall. An' mah goodness, does thet lil' girl lahk t' study. Yes ma'am, always has her lil' nosey in a book she does. She is a studious one. Now mah girl Sheri, yeah, she will study, but she has designs on gittin' hitched and havin' a whole passle of kids lahk her granny, mah momma. Thet raght thar is why it wuz so easy fer mah Sheri to take on th' responsibility when Shane's Alien babes came into the worl'.

Huney, see in thet picture whar Shane's belly is lookin a lil poofy? Well, yep, he somehow got preggers again after his twin girls Jenny and Kelly was born. An' mah goodness they are jest the cutest lil thangs Ah had ever seen in muh lahf. Thet won thar Sheri is holdin' is Jenny. Ah kin tell 'cuz of the black eyebrows. Here is one of me totin' Kelly.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ah didn't mahnd one lil' iota heppin' takin care of them Alien girls. After all, they came from Shane. Here, Ah know this one is Kelly 'cuz she has the purtiest brown hair..see the eyebrows? Well, Ah was tellin' yuh how Shane had gotten pregnant again. Well honey it wasn't 'cuz he looked in thet telescope in the front yard. It was cuz he went dancin', see. Ah kin tell that comment is clear as mud in yer mahnd. Lemme explain.

Now Huney we had heard th' same thang had happened to Tomas Capehart, which resulted in his beautiful daughter Florentilla. But you know whut, it is jest one of them thangs yuh don't believe until yuh see it with yer own eyes. Raght after Kelly an' Jenny were born, mah Shane decided tuh take a spin...Ah mean raght after. Them girls wasn't hardly settled into their new surroundins' yet. Shane musta stayed in thet thang all naght long whilst Ah tended the new arrivals. An' before yuh know it, after 'bout 7 hours of spinning, mah Shane disappeared. Yup, poof. Mah goodness, Ah wuz worried, yes Ah wuz, but Ah couldn't jest start frettin' cuz Ah didn't wanna upset the children. Ah patiently waited an' Shane did come back spinnin' away as if nothin' happened. Then his belly started expandin', so we knew whut was goin' on.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Our girls seemed to take it all in stride. Here is a pic of Robin takin' note of the impending arrival. Lordy, but thet girl doesn't miss a thang! She wuz hard pressed to go to school ever day when it got close to Shanes tahm. But th' day came an' thank goodness it happened on a Saturday when both of our girls was home from school to hep with the new babes. Yes, Ah used a plural thar. Shane had two babes again! Ah wonder it it wuz somethin' he ate???


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Editor: Big mistake. The babies in this picture aren't Jenny and Kelly. Their names are Rocco and Alexis, a boy and a girl.

Huney, we wuz all so surprised an' pleased when Shane delivered two more green babes. Why, we think they are just the cat's meow! But Ah guess nobody was more surprised than Shane. He shore got tired during all this baby birthin'. Goodness, but it made me go gray, it did. Darlin, Ah never thought havin' kids could be so stressful, but looky here! This tahm the tables was all turned every which way! This tahm it was the man doin' alla the birthin' not the woman. Ah guess Ah kin reckon now whut the men folk go through when their women is 'bout to birth.



Click on the thumbnails for a better look.


In th' meantahm, Jenny an' Kelly grew up a little bit to toddlers. Ain't they jest prescious? Ah mean, they don't have much of a nose, but huney thet is a non issue. As you kin see, mah girl Sheri wuz thar for the twins when they grew up. Mah o mah whut a wonderful momma she will make!


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Even though Ah have aged to an ol' lady, and mah man Shane has birthed more babies then Ah had ever have in mah lifetahm, Ah still find Shane tuh be the most attractive and kahnd man in this worl'. Well, as fer runnin' his new business, the gym? Ah managed tuh make it down thar once or twice during Shane's baby bearing. It is doin' well, but Ah really don' know thet he will git his 5 top level businesses in his lifetahm. Oh well, he is still quite the money earner tho. Why, Shane even managed to figger out how to make money whilst he slept!


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yes! Shane reached his impossible dream of reaching $100,000 simoleons earned in his lifetahm while he slumbered. Well, Ah know mah man Shane is just the best thang a woman could ever ask fer. Well huney, see ya next tahm...them babies is whimperin'. Talk to ya later. Here, take some of this cheesecake home with yuh, we are all kinda burned out on it 'round here. Thar's doggie bags in the kitchen.

Camryn's Happiness


Hey. Like, this is Trudy. I'm... ummm... gonna talk to you a minute, okay? Like my dad, well, he is old and everything and just doesn't think about much of anything, like I can tell anyways. It is just me and my parents now at the farm. Like, we don't do much farming anymore. Everything is growing up in weeds and all. Well dad still has his prized cowplant and everything. (I don't go near that thing, if you know what I mean. It is totally wierd).

But anyway, dad talks alot about his younger days, and the time he spent growing up in a house with 10 kids, like no privacy and everything. He was the oldest boy so he like took care of his little brothers and sisters. But like all his brothers and sisters, I guess they are my aunts and uncles are gettin' old too like dad. Uncle Niles came by the other day and him and dad stood out in the yard talkin' about the good old days.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yeah like I guess it was nice to see Uncle Niles. He doesn't come around much anymore. He says the lumbago gets him. Like, what is lumbago?

Well, since dad isn't farming much anymore, he spends alot of time with me and Kyanne helpin' us study and stuff. He says he wants us to do well in University. When he starts talkin' about that stuff, he can go on for hours talkin' about his days at the greek house with alla his friends. Then he tells me about great-aunt Shauntasia..how she
died repairing a stereo. I'm like WHAT? How can somebody be so like, clumsy? Dad says her ghost still haunts the house where she was livin' when it happened. That is just too creepy to think about.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

So it's like Kyanne is totally maxed out on her studies. She is umm...smart. Oh did I say that? Don't tell her I said that, okay? Like I am really impressed by her smarts. She ought to have it easy in college. Me, I am strugglin' a little.

Both dad and Kyanne have it upstairs. That is all they ever liked to do! Is study and read books. Me, I would rather just get on the phone and make friends. Or go out.

I met this boy. Geesh, I can't even remember his name. But my gosh he was just so nice and we stood out in the yard and talked all day long one Saturday. I was tellin' him how Kyanne really seemed to do everthing she set out to do. Dad called her an over achiever. I don't think I have the motivation to hold down and after school job and do all my studies! No sir!

Well, it isn't like Kyanne studied totally all the time. We have that spinny thing-a-majiggy thing in the basement. Like all our friends who come over to visit get on that thing. Kyanne likes it to. I got where I could spin pretty well on it, like, I ran alot on the exercise machine. I got my bod in shape! I hope to work my way up in professional athletics...women's basketball. Yeah. So the dance-o-sphere was a peice of cake for me.

Well, Kyanne is gone to college, and it is just me, mom, and dad here. Mom and dad talk about selli' this house, but I don't know if they will.
