This was quite an eventful round for nearly all of my households! Every family’s founders are now elders, so generation two is about to take over…
At THE SMITH HOUSE….
Kenna becomes a little cutie!
Ruthie and Barney Woods get cozy! (Looks like there may not be the big fight over Mara Forrester between Michael Hamilton and Barney Woods that I was worried about…)
The Smith family gets a genie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There goes the Hamilton family’s sure-thing lead in the run for eventual emperor!
Bram also grows up to be a teen!
Kah Smith becomes an elder!!
Unexpectedly, Ruthie dies of starvation! But her mother pleads for her life, and the Reaper decides to give the teen another shot…
Dinah, Bram, and Ruthie!
Now it’s time for Gur to grow old! My first family to have elders!
After her near death experience, Ruthie is feeling much less inhibited and decides to call over her secret crush, Tyron Whitman, the dastardly kidnapper! (She must be going through her bad boy phase…)
Then it’s time for the eldest daughter, Gerta Smith, to have her birthday to celebrate becoming an adult! They make it a real celebration, inviting over friends/neighbors to celebrate with Gerta!
Inexplicably, Gerta picks a fight with poor Arla Moore and Gerta wins… bye bye Arla! 😦
Gerta all grown up with her mom and dad! These are her last days at home before she goes off to marry Arnold Bishop! Mom and Dad will miss her so.
Over at the BISHOP HOUSE….
Lovebirds Gerta Smith and Arnold Bishop waste no time getting engaged!
While they’re at it, they tie the knot, with only her sister Dinah as a witness! Arnold is an overachiever and is eager to start his family, since being the only male–and only member–of his family, the family legacy and the Bishop name rests on his shoulders. the sooner they get a son, the better!
The newly married couple, Arnold and Gerta Bishop!
She is pregnant pretty immediately!
And they give birth to a baby boy named Gabriel on the first try! The family name is safer now, and the first member of generation 3 is born!!!!!!!
On to the MOORE house….
While attending Gerta Smith’s birthday party, Gerta murdered Arla in a fight…
Twins Khal and Khanna grown into toddlers, although now they are motherless…. luckily they have a big sister who can help raise them…
Jinella becomes a child while Kaz becomes an elder! (Gerta Smith is there, as she wanted to extend her sympathies to the family…)
Jayla has a crush on Orlo Morton, even though he’s younger than she is and doesn’t seem all that interested in her…
Then it’s time for Jayla to grow up and become woman of the house!
Since Arla died, it’s just father and daughter for this “All Grown Up” portrait….
And at the BLACK FAMILY….
Tragedy strikes! While cooking dinner, a horrible fire consumes basically the whole kitchen, all of their appliances/counters, AND Jam and Blossom Black! 😦
After Ursa begs the Grim Reaper to spare her loved ones, he agrees to spare Blossom, but her husband Jam is gone forever…
Faced with the loss of her soul mate and single motherhood to her children and the one she is pregnant with, poor Ursa has a nervous breakdown, the last flowers he surprised her with still visible in the distance. 😦
Marvin becomes a child…. with a smashed in nose.
A baby girl is born, and Ursa names her Jayma after Jam…
Big sister Delilah helps out with Tasha and the new baby while Marvin and Darius are
in school out learning to hunt.
Blossom becomes a teen!
Ursa is devastated when the kidnapping tribe learns of her single motherhood and comes to take her children away! They take Marvin and Tasha… but when she tries to take Jayma, Ursa finds her fight, and she fights the woman, taking back her baby while the woman runs off with her other two children!
Since Arnold Bishop has married Gerta, Delilah decides to explore other options, like ROY Smith, Gerta’s brother.
Ursa becomes an elder!
An elder with a baby…
The years pass, and her baby Jayma grows into a toddler…
Ursa finally gets comfortable being an elder…
And then one day, miraculously, Tasha shows up on her doorstep, having escaped Tyron WHITMAN’s camp of stolen children!
Meanwhile at CAMP WHITMAN…
Tyron has quite a sizeable brood at this point…Lela Woods, Tasha and Marvin Black, Steve Hamilton, and Trella and Jali Moore.
Jali Moore and Steve Hamilton both become teenagers!
Unfortunately, Steve is a huge jerk to TRELLA and hits her right in front of everybody just because he’s angry. Trella is hurt.
Tasha Black and Lela Woods both grow up. (Tasha is as cute as a button! Lela needs new clothes, lol)
His assistant reports back to him, and while she’s informing him of the goings on, Tyron hears a scream from inside the shack where the kids sleep.
Steve Hamilton dies!
After Steve’s death, there’s a heat wave and nearly everyone is hit… everyone except Tasha Black, who escapes while they’re having heat strokes and heads back to her home…
After the losses this round, the WHITMAN clan is down to Marvin Black, Lela Woods, and Jali and Trella Moore…
Trella is less and less a prisoner and more the tribe’s mother. Tyron gruffly informs her shortly after Steve’s death that his death was no accident; Tyron didn’t like the way Steve treated Trella so he slipped a little something extra in his rations that night.
Trella isn’t sure how to respond…
THEN the unexpected happens–Tyron dies of heatstroke!! While Marvin demands to know if she’s crazy, Trella falls to her knees and begs for Tyron’s life to be spared.
“Trella… we can go home if he–” Marvin tries logic, but Trella persists, and the Reaper grants her wish…
Trella was already his favorite, but now that she’s saved his life… he can’t believe it!
Over at the HAMILTON/MORTON HOUSE/S…
First love… Mara Forrester and MICHAEL HAMILTON, heir to the Hamilton fortune…
With news of the Smith family’s new fortune, Till is feeling less sure of his family legacy and he tells Tisa he wants to try for another son. To make room for a baby, she moves her sons from her previous marriage out into their own place.
“Will you boys be okay?”
They assure her they will, and she gives them a few gifts to get started…
Tisa’s last pregnancy!!
Rachel Hamilton is a beauty!
They welcome a new baby, but it’s a girl, not a boy, and there is no time to try again. They name her Callie!
THEN Tisa and Till become elders!!
AND lastly, the WOODS FAMILY!
They welcome a daughter named Rena!
She becomes a toddler and their next and last baby is also a girl; they name her Selma!
When the kidnapper comes around, Fred warns her off and tells her not to come back.
THEY GET A LAMP!!!!
ROCK becomes a teen!
Selma becomes a toddler! RENA becomes a child!! They grow up so fast!
AND Fred and Wilma grow old…
