Title: University Week 12 - First Entry, for rnd 12
Lot: 80 Crumplebottom Road - Greek House - Residence of Terrance McClelland and Maris Strickland
The last year for Maris and Terrance was uneventful. They had already realized everything college had to offer and just wanted to get through the last year so they could go back to the Falls and begin a life together. Terrance found himself hitting the books over and above what he needed for final exam.
Although Terrance hadn't officially asked Maris to marry him it was on his mind. He had already arranged to buy the house his grandparents, Jayrus and Tosha Capehart, had lived in as newlyweds. He did not even entertain the possibility that Maris might refuse his offer of marriage and a good life with him. In his mind, it was a given. After all, he and Maris had as good as been husband and wife living alone in the Greek House Crumplebottom and sharing a bed together. This is the same building his father (Johnson McClelland) and his grandfather (Jayrus Capehart) had lived in and graduated out of at Sim State. And they had found true love, didn't they? Maris, on the other hand, did not spend one minute longer studying than she had to.
Maris spent her time doling out advice. She had certainly adopted a "Donna Reed" approach to life where life's worse problems could be solved by a nice talk over ladyfinger sandwiches at lunch time. She seemed especially adept at sorting out the love lives of poor deluded folks. It got around campus that she was usually right on the money when it came to fixing broken hearts, and kids started showing up at the greek house on a daily basis eagerly waiting to get some help. Her degree in psychology would certainly come in handy for what she had in mind after graduation. She hoped to host an advice column in the Prosperity Falls Gazette. All she had to do was sell the editor on the idea. Oh, and there was Terrance, of course. Her love. She helped others get their love life back together, what had she done wrong? Terrance had yet to give her a ring.....
Graduation day came, and Terrance and Maris moved out of the Greek house. Maris gave up her girlish ponytail in favor of a nice updo to make her look more mature. Maybe folks would take her seriously and ask her for advice. Terrance was ready to face the world and try to make it a place that Maris would want to be...with him. Look forward to seeing Maris and Terrance again in round 12, last entry.
Next we have Jati Robbins and Samarah McClelland who were freshmen last Uni round. Jati's parents are Zaed and Synclare Robbins, and Samarah's parents are Tosca and Johnson McClelland. They took up residence in the little 5 room dorm. These two lovebirds were bitten hard by the love bug....but now reality is starting to set in. While they both have gained entry to the Greek House Crumplebottom, the Secret Society and became Big Sims on Campus, they have nothing to do now but to get through school and make friends to carry them through their careers once graduated.
To her dismay, Samarah is finding out Jati has a penchant for bathing in front of other folks. Samarah is starting to wonder what she has done! She is finding out he loves to stand up at the dinner table and pass wind on all who are eating, and laughs hysterically when someone belches. What kind of strange individual is Jati Robbins? They are now in their junior year at State.
Gertrude and Jessie had never met, but both had managed to rent the same property on campus. Gertrude had a particular interest in this house; it is the one her father, Chevy Strickland, had lived in decades ago with his sister Shauntasia Strickland. Gertrude's Aunt Shauntasia was buried on the property and she hoped to see her ghost. Jessie had no interest in the house at all, but it turns out he developed a keen interest in Gertrude. You will see their romance bud and bloom next Uni update.
Gertrude's wishes to see her Aunt Shauntasia were granted, more than once. Her aspiration points are clicking!
These two have two bolts for each other. Martin is Chevy and Kirstee Strickland's baby, their 10th child, and heir to the Strickland homestead. Chevy and Kirstee can't wait for Martin to come home so they can move out of the house and start their foster home for children. Joslyn is daughter of Tryce Capehart, and sister to another newcomer this round, alien Joy Capehart. She is also sister to Jessie Capehart (seen above with Gertrude Strickland). Yes, Tryce and Michelle Capehart unloaded three kids at once to University. That set them back a pretty simoleon! Of course, Tryce could afford it, why, with finally becoming an Icon and a best selling author! The money is getting good for the Capehart family.
These two are gonna be an easy sell in Prosperity Falls. Me thinks the Strickland homestead will ring with the sounds of small children once again!
Joy has rented a small one bedroom home right off campus. Being a romance Sim, Joy knew she didn't want to have a roomate to snoop in her business with the guys! She has already snagged the stud Goopy Gilsboro as a lover, and another man...from her youth back in Prosperity Falls.
Yes, Joy met up with Xuan Robbins, her beau from high school. It didn't take but one kiss for the two to get back together. Joy is counting herself lucky to have snagged a good looking Sim like Xuan. After all, her skin isn't the prettiest, and her eyes are so huge and ugly. However, while he does seem to throw some attention her way, she knows he is not giving his all. Thus, the lover Goopy Gilsboro. Xaun is living in the Pinenut Plaza dorm where there are plenty of chicks to be had and sought after.....
It is I, Xuan Robbins! Son of Zaed, and grandson of Timo! I am here at Sim State University where my assignment is to persue the Anotothian Joy Capehart, make her mine in body and mind the same so I can wed her and reproduce with her upon graduation from this institution. Pfft. I find the creature loathsome! Why must I pursue a green skinned googly eyed woman, when my grandfather had the beautiful Meadow, and my father had the gorgeous Synclare...and even my own brother Quavi has the pretty Daphne?
I have made it my business to mate with this alien...as I must bring myself to do. It is my duty. The first time I did not care...we did it right in the public eye. I shall do it with her only as much as I have to, to carry on the Mission. I imagine spending the rest of my life with this...thing....and giving her my seed to breed. That is the only thing that saves my sanity. To know that I will do my part in saving the Anotothian race. I could have Sarah....
Or anyone of the becoming females I come in contact with on a daily basis here in the Pinenut Plaza Dorm. It is very tempting. But my father Zaed says I must not waste my seed or my mating practice on empty wishes. I must keep focused on the Mission. He tells me I am almost human with my thoughts and wants! Very much like my great-Aunt Kamika! He says. I do not know. It is very hard for me to ignore the beautiful females of the human race.
And, it is very hard for them to ignore me. I am very handsome, am I not? Ahhh...such beauty wasted on...that thing...that JOY...... She is not MY Joy! (Both Xuan and Joy are romance sims with the same want...woo-hoo with 20 sims!)
Accomplishments this round: Terrance McClelland realizes his LTW of max 7 skills, perm plat.
