Okay, LJ decided to eat my last post while I was still in the middle of writing it. Not funny, LJ.
So this is take two. Hopefully it comes out as good as the first one was.
Anyway: Last time the kids were all teens and did all the usual teen things. Eat grilled cheese, smustle, stay up half the night, ignore their guests and smustle. Everyone was then packed off to University where Brekke was declared the next Torch Holder. Warnings: Swearing, the usual stupidity, cows, and many, many pics.
Before we get to the kids I have to include something I somehow forgot to include last time.
Kent achieved elderhood and, despite constantly burning his food and suffering two mental breakdowns, somehow managed to grow up well.
He transitioned after taking a nap and with several of his kids dancing around in the room to help him celebrate.
Okay! Now, on to University.
The kids all grew up well, too. They went to Sim State.
I let them have the first four rooms in. I figure it will be easier for them to get to class that way.
I bought them the Exercise Bike of Doom. I know, I've heard the stories. I'm just going to have to pray nobody rides on it until they starve.
And speaking of starving, all three managed to get their first meal without any problems. That's good. These kids have been pretty good about taking care of their needs for the most part.
Brekke, why are you stalking the dormies? It's far too soon to get creepy here.
The girls got new outfits as well as F'lar. F'nor got to keep what he transitioned into.
Menolly: "Hey, sis! Check out my new outfit! What do you think?"
Brekke: "What? Huh? Mel, I'm trying to take a shower here! Can't it wait?"
She then decides to strike up a conversation with some of the other dormies in the shower room and thus brings the creep factor up to about 5 and we've just got started!
F'lar was the first of the uncontrollables to find the EBOD. LOL at his work-out clothes!
He worked out for a few hours then went to bed. So far, so good.
He didn't "get fit" until the next morning after he woke up.
Menolly's guide to being a creepy stalker type.
1.Stand on the other side of a wall from where the object of your scrutiny is. Make sure they can't see you.
2.Should the object of your attention walk past you pretend you don't see them. Whistling a tune can help.
3.Stand by the stairs and watch all the dormies come down and go to class. Watch your brother pass you but don't acknowledge him.
After he passes you, follow him until he settles somewhere. Make sure to stand in doorways if possible.
If you follow all these steps you too can be creepy and stalker-y.
The crazy coach must have come on the lot when I wasn't looking and caught poor F'nor. The poor kid was doing jumping jacks for hours while his siblings played catch.
Menolly was the next uncontrollable to discover the EBOD. Again, she used it for a couple of hours then went to bed. So far, so good.
She also 'got fit' after a good nights sleep.
And so it starts. Both F'lar and F'nor are romance sims so I just know their want panels are full of wants they'll never fulfill on their own.
I decided to take them all out to a community lot. Maybe that would do something to help their mood.
Besides, it's never too early for Brekke to start scoping out available mens.
Of course, I forgot to consider when she went to class, so as soon as they arrived Brekke headed off to class leaving the uncontrollables on their own.
F'nor is the first one to show some initiative. He went in and sat at the bar.
"Well, hey there, sweet thang. You come here often?"
"Not after today, no. Check please!"
Smooth move, F'nor. She could not have sat any further away from him and still be at the bar.
"What went wrong? Do I have something stuck in my teeth? Dirt on my face? Does my breath smell bad?"
You're fine, baby, she just doesn't know a good thing when she sees it.
The other two eventually join their brother. Of course Menolly had to stand in the doorway again.
When Brekke came back from class she went and joined this guy on the stage to jam with him.
As soon as she started playing, however, he stopped, complaining of being hungry. Oh, comeon! Her playing isn't that bad!
It may be time to leave anyway. Not only is the Unsavory Charlatan here but also the stupid cow mascot.
Ha! Whatever line of bullshit U.C. was trying to lay on him F'nor would have nothing of it and stopped U.C. cold.
Unfortunately, the same could not be said of Brekke's encounter with the cow. He followed her into the bathroom and started some shit with her.
Bitch made my girl cry!
Menolly: "You'd better watch yourself, Mr. Cow. Nobody makes my twin cry. Watch your back, because steak is back on the menu."
Menolly: "Don't you worry, sister, I got your back."
Brekke: "Oh, Mel, you're the best."
Could you two just, hug or something and not kiss?
After returning to the dorm Brekke headed off to class again for the second time that day.
She finished the first semester with an A+ and an undying hatred for the cow mascot.
F'nor and F'lar passed with A+es and Menolly got a B. One semester down! Only 7 more to go!
I know Menolly has no cooking skill points so I encouraged her to cook a meal and she didn't even burn it! Way to go, Menolly!
Menolly: "Hey, sis! Hurry up, please? I really have to go!"
Brekke: "Are you serious? I just sat down! Go elsewhere."
Menolly: "No, really, I've got to go NOW! Hurry!"
Brekke: "Four words, Mel; Three Stalls! Two Empty! Go use one of them!"
Menolly: "But I like this one!"
Menolly: "I'm going to wet myself! I Can't Wait Any Longer
Brekke: "Yo, sis. Been out for five minutes."
And, no, she didn't piss herself. Her hygiene is just in the toilet, too.
When she finally got herself together she went out and joined this dormie dancing.
Brekke is trying to get to know some of the dormies she's living with. Some of them are likely to be in the secret society although I'm really not worrying about any of them getting in.
She even tries to help her brothers out by introducing this one to F'lar.
An awkward silence then ensues as Brekke leaves for class.
He then turned the radio on but as soon as she started to dance he walked off!
"Yay! Video Games!"
Since when do you turn down dancing to go play games?
Ah, but a little later on he did go and strike up a conversation with this dormie all by himself.
Uh-oh. she must have said something he didn't like.
Dormie: "What did I say?"
F'nor: "WAAHHHH! I'm never going to get laid at this rate!"
F'lar: "Oh, suck it up, brother."
Yeah, like you're doing so much better than him, F'lar.
Time to go mate hunting again. Brekke went out to the Archimedes Arcade and the first thing she did was play with the remote control car.
She then goes in and introduces herself to Conner Weir.
And promptly bores him to death apparently.
Cashier: stare, stare, stare.
"When I graduate I have a lovely little house picked out. I can't wait to graduate and move in!"
Yeah. Lovely little house. Your parents house!
"I don't really know how much inheritance I'll get but I'm hoping it will be a substantial amount."
Good Lord, girl, let your parents enjoy their old age before you plot their demise, will you?
She scoped the room and lit up rikkulidea
's Hyperion Randolph, who was just getting ready to leave.
Fortunately she was able to introduce herself before he got too far. She has one bolt with him.
He seems to like what he sees, too.
Hello, Kent, who's playing chess in the background. I see you.
After Hyperion left she went back inside to talk to some more people.
You can just stop heart-farting there, Benjamin! I see that wedding ring on your finger!
Bartender: stare, stare, stare.
Oh great. The fucking cow is here. If there's one thing that annoys me more than incompetent nannies, it's the cow mascot.
I think the cook has dealt with him before. She's not happy to see him either.
The first thing he does is go to shake hands with F'lar.
Don't Do It! It's a trap!
See? I told you.
F'lar: "Pull that shit on me one more time and I'll break off those horns of yours and shove 'em up your ass! Got that?"
Getting no satisfaction from messing with F'lar the cow then went back into the dinning room and started picking on the pink sweater dormie.
Then he zapped shirtless dormie.
To hell with this! Brekke's out and about again. This time she stopped at the coffee house in town. There she met steezie_k
's Hawthorn Creelman. And almost immediately tells me she finds him utterly revolting!
It didn't stop him from following her around, even though she didn't say anything else to him at all.
The coffee shop was rather dead so she headed for the mini mart. Hello again, Kent. What are you doing? Stalking your daughter?
Inside she greeted Nyx Randolph also by rikkulidea
. Nyx was underwhelmed by Brekke.
She then met Ares Randolph.
He's all, 'oh, yeah, hot stuff!' but she was more, 'meh.' *sigh*
Then Hyperion Randolph showed up! What is this? Do all the Randolphs hang out here?
Brekke: "Ooo, I really like this one!"
Yes, I can see that.
Back at the dorm I decided to use Menolly's one command to earn some Mechanical skill points. Something none of these kids learned. I figured she'd have a couple by the time she stopped and it might help her grades some.
F'nor decided he'd had enough of the cooks' food and decided to make his own breakfast.
Hey, no one gave you permission to go eat with the students!
"He wants to cook, let him! I need a break now and then."
She only has one bolt with him but Brekke really, really, really wanted to go on a date with Hyperion so he was invited to come over.
they did all the usual date things.
"Ow, my wrist!"
LOL! Really, Brekke?
The date ended when she had to go to class but if it wasn't a dream date it at least was a good one.
I was surprised when, after the date ended, Hyperion decided to stick around.
Usually I don't worry too much when lightening hits the trees because the rain will put it out. This time, however, the lightening hit just as the rain was ending.
And now half the dorm is outside dancing around the fucking thing. Shit!
Brekke was just about ready to go take her final exam. I had to actually cancel the action so I could send her to the phone to call the fire department then send her to class.
She walked by all the panicking dormies and her own siblings without a care in the world. Fire's out, everything's good.
Until This happened. Oh Shit!
Uh, Mr. Fireman? A little help?
Fireman: "You kids be careful now! Don't get too close to that tree, it may still be very hot!"
DON'T LEAVE! HE'S ON FIRE! SHIT! SHIT! SHIT!
I had no choice but to use F'nor's YA command to put his brother out! It would have taken too long for him to get to the stupid phone.
It seemed to take him forever. I really thought I was going to lose F'lar! *sob*
Finally, finally, the fire went out.
Almost as soon as the fire was out they got the call to go to their final exam (there's was about an hour after Brekke's). Menolly and F'nor left on their own.
But F'lar went in to get something to eat and promptly passed out in his food.
I couldn't help it, I had to peek at his stats. Holy crap he was so close to dying and he wasn't out of the woods yet!
A little later Menolly and F'nor came back. Both of them passed. Menolly got an A+ and F'nor got a B.
But since he missed his final exam F'lar received an F.
Next time; Part two of University.
