University Update- Round 11


Welcome to round 11 in Uni, let's see who occupies the dorm,
Part 1.
Here's Graham Gregory. Grandson of Herb Oldie & Lucy Hanby (maid).
He's a Pleasure Sim with a LTW to become a Game Designer. He's in first semester of Junior Year.
 
This is Kaydon Lothario, her parents are Don & Kaylynn. She's a Fortune Sim with a LTW to become a Prestidigitator.
She chooses to Major in Literature.
 
Celeste is the youngest member of the Lothario clan. She came to Uni with her sister.
She's a Knowledge Sim with a LTW to become a World Class Ballet Dancer.
 
As Kaydon gets to know her new roommate Graham I decide new round, new décor!
 
Yellows and blues make for a cool change.
 
The Kitchen is cute but let's warm it up a tad.
 
Bright and bold!
 
Of course all Sims love to dance, and Hula is the dance of preference just lately.
 
It would be nice for Celeste and Kaydon to join the Secret Society but there's only one member living here. Well two if you count Graham. No doubt they'll meet others.
 
Upstairs too gets a lick of paint and a fresh mat for the snooker table. Looks like Celeste has an admirer.
 
The girls call their Mum and their friends to tell them all about college life so far.
 
Graham ran into the Streaker. It's hard to get them to stick around long enough to engage in conversation but he managed it.
 
Talk about relaxed. :D
 
Graham found out her name was Abbey Benson and he called her up and invited her on a date.
He was a little disappointed I think when she turned up clothed, so much so that he had the urge to 'streak' himself.
 
The interaction obviously just works in college and as soon as he got home he ditched his clothes and streaked around the lot.
 
No-one was very impressed and even the Sentrybot considered zapping him I think. (But didn't).
 
Both Graham and Celeste are experts in Gardening and enjoy tending the college plots.
 
Kaydon is studying hard while secretly watching the resident enemies Holden and Mayhew starting a fight.
 
Graham got a love letter from Abbey.
 
The 3 Dormies finished their eventful semester.
 
Part 2,
We saw him leave his parents' house and now Mardy Goth is in college. Living in his own house (furnished by his parents).
 
As you remember Mardy is a Romance sim with a LTW to have 20 simultaneous loves. He headed straight to a college lot and made as many contacts as possible before he headed to class. Here he's meeting Sarah Love. Looks like she's giant steps ahead of Mardy!
 
Later that day he got invited Downtown by Rosemarie Day.
 
Sitting next to Rosemarie his group took up 2 tables. He found a few potential 'love' interests.
 
Rosemarie became the first.
 
Sarah Love his second.
 
D J Verse just happened to walk by and Mardy invited her in, used several 'smart glasses' and before you know it red hearts appeared.
 
The date went very well.
 
Why is it when you try to get into the Secret Society you can't and when you aren't trying it just happens? Right in the middle of a date with Lora Mace too!
 
No harm done. Mardy invited her back over the next day. His cheerleader friend is hanging out here, like they do, without an invitation.
 
Number 5 on Mardy's list is the resident Diva, Jordan Barakat.  I wonder how many Sims are/have been in love with her? It's been quite a few if I recall.
 
They enjoy a spot of hot tub love and I think that 5 lovers in one semester is pretty good going!
 
Not that that is all Mardy did. Oh no, he managed to max a skill.
 
He even had time to order pizza.
 
and enjoy a friendly game with the Cheerleader.
 
oh, and he made the Dean's list! :)

Goth- Round 11- House 2

Welcome back to the Goth Household. Complete with its 'burning tree' glitch.

Living here are the twin sons of Cassandra Goth, Campbell & Hans. 

Hans' wife Ivy (nee Copur- townie) and one of their sons, Mardy.
Hans & Ivy had 4 children, twins Wednesday & Fuller, then Morgan and finally Mardy.
Morgan & Fuller live in the 'Spares' household which we visited here

Here is Wednesday with her fiancé Juan Lothario- son of Don Lothario & Kaylynn Langerak and like his wife, a twin.

The little alien child is Pluto Goth, born to Campbell after an abduction.

Finishing off the household line up is Gale Goth (yes I was watching The Hunger Games at the time :D)
He is the child of Wednesday & Juan and Great, Great-Grandson of Mortimer Goth which makes him the first 5th Generation child in Pleasantview.

The Leader of the Pack just walked in the house and started growling at everyone until Hans chased him off.

After the Lothario round I was reminded that Kaylynn has a wish to marry off 6 children and so I had Wednesday and Juan get married. (Juan helped her reach number 4).
A little glitch here- Juan was cuddling Gale at the time that Wednesday clicked on the wedding arch and although he dropped his arms he never put Gale down, had I known that was going to happen I'd have put Gale in a suit. :D
 
It seems Kaylynn isn't the only Mother who wants her kids' to marry- Ivy too had a wish to see Wednesday get married and got a nice boost of aspiration points when it happened.
I bet all the guests feet are freezing buried in that snow :)
 
After the wedding everyone settled back into Sim life. Mardy became a high achiever when he reached the top of his teen career. He is a Romance Sim with a lifetime wish to have 20 Simultaneous Loves. (eeek!) So I locked his college wish long ago as it'll be easier to do it there.
 
Though he hasn't worn his wizard robes in some time Hans still enjoys brewing potions, making ornaments and casting the odd spell here and there.
 
All adults and Elders are still working as the Elders haven't yet reached their 70th birthdays. (My self-imposed rule is to have them retire at 70 unless it's for a LTW they are working on).
I forget which career Ivy is in but her colleagues come home in some odd outfits. Adventurer maybe?
 
Juan reached the top of his career (Slacker) and has been perma platinum for a while.

Juan and Wednesday are very easy to keep happy. They start their day by chatting, entertaining, playing, admiring and dancing. Then with their wishes fulfilled they please themselves mostly.
 
Eternal bachelor and pleasure loving Campbell still enjoys dating. Jessie Pilferson from college is actually engaged to Campbell. I guess he had the wish way back when although never wanted to get married.
 
He even went out with someone in his own age group!
 
He and Tina Santander had a lovely date.
 
After the date ended though poor Tina got set upon by both Mario Caliente and Leaf Terrano.
I've no idea what all that was about!
 
Campbell's son Pluto gets an A+.
I was going to move Campbell to the Senior Residence this round but it'll be next round now after Pluto grows up.
 
It's birthday time for little Gale.
 
He gets a makeover with new glasses.
 
You may remember that since I added a basement the original ghosts are all coming in the house now, sometimes as many as 3 ghosts a night.
 
I had Wednesday send them off to the local Cemetery.
I did keep Mortimer, Cassandra and Nicholas' gravestones though.
 
Nicholas is probably my favourite ghost as he does all the cleaning and bed making when he comes out!
Free maid, love it.
 
Ah yes I kept Audrey's ghost too. You may remember she dated Campbell and never left the house afterwards, then got eaten by the cowplant.
 
Wednesday may be wishing she'd sent Audrey off too. :D
 
Pluto, like his Uncle Hans is a Nature lover and helps out in the garden whenever he can.
 
Gale is into studying at the moment, he really wished to learn Physiology.
 
Ivy wished to serve up dinner, but her burnt offerings of Lobster didn't look too great.
 
Gale tried hard to please his Grandmother by eating it and hoped she didn't notice him gagging after every mouthful.
 
The family had a fun outing at the Baliwood Star Lanes.
 
For some reason Juan has never got along with either of his in-laws and constantly slaps them when he thinks I'm not looking.
 
They're such a sweet couple too.
 
Hans wants to adopt a pet but everytime he comes close to friendship they disappear off the lot. He (me) really wants a wolf which is why I can't buy a pet.
 
Even though she steals their paper practically every day both Pluto and Gale are friends with Emme Bruenig. (Grandchild of Beau (Broke) and Marsha Bruenig).
 
Another slap fest between Ivy and Juan.
 
oh dear, this one turned into a full blown attack.
 
But there can only be one winner.
I wonder where Wednesday is when her husband is busy picking a fight with her Mother?
 
Outside, chatting to the mailman.
 
Pluto witnessed the whole fight and was quite distraught but picked himself and his mood up enough to blow out the candles on his cake later that day.
 
Teenager at last.
A roll of the dice picked Family for his aspiration and he has a lifetime wish to graduate 3 kids from college.
 
He gets a more 'Gothy' makeover and will work hard on scholarships before he heads to college early next round.
 
 
 
Summary,
A fun round at the Goth's, if a little slow. Getting rid of some of the tombstones helped a bit and I also deleted the burning tree as it kept knocking out build and buy mode even though the fire never went out.
 
I know there are a lot of sims and memories to load on the lot so I expect that's the reason it's slow but I was pleased to get my 5th Generation on the way and growing up!
 
Next we'll pop into College for a quick update.
