Hello everyone. I don't know when this part will be approved and published, but I completed it still in 2009. So I want to thank everyone who has been with me through comments all this time, the whole year. I'm glad I started this Chronicles series. I don't answer all comments personally, but each one is important to me. I hope you all had a good year and the new one will be even better.

This part might be a little shorter than most, but I really wanted to get it out now, because I'm having exams in january and might not have that much time to play. Generally this part is much more peaceful, not so much drama. But it can't be in all families. It will get more interesting when I return to Beaker/Curious. I promise. I have a plan. ;)

Nothing much to say about the Loner family. Maggie wasn't sure what she wants to do in life but it was probably something with sports, following her mother's achievements. Ajay hoped one of his children would grow up into a businessman one day, like he was, but Alan also showed no interest in that when he grew up to a teenager. Alan was spending a lot of time with his little cousin Lionel Singles. Who's life never really got better. His mother Chloe never really took care of him and now he often ended up sleeping on the sofa. Because the only bed in the house was occupied by someone else... and every time someone new. He lost interest in school, his homework was just piling up in one place. But it was just about time to start worrying about the future. Because he has grown up into a teenager. Now that he was older, Lionel spent as little time home as possible. He started going out at nights. Which often resulted in him sleeping at day and missing school. Things were much more pleasant with Cyd and Erin Roseland. Cyd's dog Porthos was old and retired from his job, just like his owners. When I entered the game after a big break from playing I thought I want to change Sylvia's hair, so here she is with new. I think it looks much better now. But then I thought her clothing doesn't match the hair and changed that too. That's what happens if you don't play for a while... (In case someone has forgotten, she's Cyd's and Erin's daughter) Erin's best friend is Maggie Loner. But she spends much more time with more furry friends... She learned to love dogs as much as her parents do, she grew up with them. Sylvia loves spending time training Perry, the youngest. Picaso twins may not be completely identical, but are already getting used to wearing identical uniforms. And spending a lot of time training, even at such a young age. Their older sister Maria is no exception to that either. There she is. Her last days as a child. Now she's a teenager and will probably join the military when she grows up. Her best friend is Trent Grunt. They are exactly of same age and since their parents are such close friends, they almost grew up together. Yet Maria can't understand why isn't he interested in military, coming from a dinasty of great generals.

Note: I chose Tank Grunt to be the last of Grunt generals, his children will choose other things in life. But my Picaso family will start a new dinasty of generals. At least for now.
Kristen and Lee Rusewicz hope to start a dinasty of sports players. Their oldest daughter Alexandra spents a lot of time with basketball. But the twins Liam and Rebecka prefer football. Alexandra grew up to a teenager. Her new outfit... ...to impress Alan Loner. They're almost the same age and were friends for a long time now. Looks like Alan likes Alexandra. Gunnar Roque's life hasn't canged much... It's still about the girls, the girls and the girls. But will it change now that he gave his last performance with the band? It's time to retire. Luckily he still has fans who are not going to forget him so fast. Afraid to lose his popularity among the females Gunnar started to work out regulary, to keep in shape. His daughters try to call him occasionally, but he's never too enthusiastic about talking to them. His twin daughters. Anais (on thel eft) and Clementine. Their mother Jasmine. She bought a huge house, wishing to make it look like a palace, all for the girls. She never knew it would be so difficult financially. Luckily Gunnar pays at least some money once in a while, accepting the fact that Anais and Clementine are his children. Despite all the difficulties, Jasmine is happy to have them. It's better than to be all alone. The girls grew up to teenagers. They're almost identical. The only differences are that Clementine (on the right) has a slightly darker skin and Anais has Gunnar's big nose. They both like music. Anais prefers drums, like her father. And Clementine is more into singing. Jasmine grew up and it's time for her to retire too. New clothing. And a look into the mirror... The house is still almost empty. Only the bedrooms and an upstair bathroom look like she wants them to. But now she will have more time to decorate the house and be with the girls. One thing made her happy the house is only fancy on the outside so far. When the burglar came, he found nothing to steal. Police caught him just before he managed to reach the music instruments. Guy was doing a great job as a mayor. He knew almost everyone in town and tried to know everyone personally, to know everyone's problems and try to help solving them. But he couldn't be doing it forever. Time was ticking, he had to retire some time soon and had noone to replace him. DJ gave birth to their second child. Meet a new boy in the neighborhood - Daniel Wrightley. Vivian was very happy to get a brother. The big day. Guy's birthday. His new clothing. He could choose to look more official, but he did that a lot at work. At home he was a father and a husband. Vivian tried to learn from her father that relationships are important, she tries to befriend everyone in Strangetown. But it's too early to say if she has interest in politics. DJ loves her job as a journalist. Good income, good company... Yet it's time to retire. Guy didn't retire, he still works. He needs to find someone trustworthy to take his place. It's easier for DJ. Daniel grew up the same day she did.

Off topic note: when he grew up into that I was looking at them both thinking "If that's a hint you want me to add an island vacation destination for Strangetown - dream on."
DJ now became a full-time stay at home mother. She did wish she would be a grandmother by now... But when she was younger, career seemed more important. As happy as Vivian was to get a brother, she was even more happier when he was big enough to play with her. Things weren't getting easier in the Hart household. Sarah tried to keep her job, raise five children and was also expecting her sixth. At least Shannon was already old enough to help. The newest addition to the family - little baby girl Theresa. Matthew grew up to elder and had to retire. It didn't make things any easier financially. Sarah grew up to elder too. And the younger twins grew up to children.
(Even I get confused with the names of all the children in the family, so I won't bother you with them.)
I absolutely adore this picture. The oldest and the youngest of Hart children - Shannon and Theresa, just grown up to toddler. Jessie is still ignoring her only child that Prof. Zaitrarrio wanted so much. He wanted a child, he got one. He's the only person taking care of Samantha. Even as a toddler she looks a lot like Jessie already. It makes Zaitrarrio fear that she might grow up the same. Jessie's nightmare - she's not young any more, her body is not perfect... And there's nothing to help it. She was even slightly ashamed to meet her college times rich lover Frances J. III. But he was happy to see her. He held no anger and wanted them to be friends. Jessie's new look. Time flies, it's another Samantha's birthday. Which made her father worry even more. Now she's little, she loves him and doesn't question things. But now she will start school, meet other kids, learn about other families. She might start asking why doesn't mommy love her. And what will he say? Frances J. hasn't changed much either. Money was still the most important part of his life. He was very concerned about his children's education in everything. His twin daughters had to spend a lot of time learning to play the piano. And the heir of his fortune grew up - Frances J. Worthington IV. He was about to start school. On that occasion. Frances J. invited the private school headmaster for dinner. The girls missed the dinner for an important reason - time to grow up. This is Hellen. And this is Joanne. All three Worthington children. Left-to-right. Hellen, Frances J. IV, Joanne.
Hellen and Joanne are identical except for two things: Joanne has slightly lighter skin tone and is very nice, when Hellen only has one point in "Grouchy/Nice". Joanne has 8 or so.
Frances J. III grew up to elder. Armando and Zoe, still madly in love, just like when they met. Their daughter Amber. Time to grow old. First Armando. Then Zoe. And the next day Amber. I chose popularity aspiration for her, because her both parents are popularity. Will she find such a real love? She might have increased chances for that. A gypsy just left Amber a gift! I'll leave you with this pretty picture of Amber playing the violin. Thank you all for reading, please rate and comment and share any thoughts you have. I won't make any promises for the next part, except that it will come for sure. I just won't promise any "when" :)

(there are a few more pictures)
Just a few random pictures I wanted to share. This is Maria Picaso and her younger brother Julian Picaso. She just woke up in the morning earlier than him and went to "tuck in" autonomously, I thought it's very nice. Alexandra Rusewicz and Alan Loner. Technically they're the same age, but I played his family first, so she's younger. I liked how she looked at him. I was planning to pair them up when they're both teens, but look - she likes him already :) And the last of the randoms. "Synchronic homework". Twins Anais and Clementine Rai.
