Uni update & Round 3 score.

Newly changed Fortune sim Bottom (after a hectic few years as a Romance sim) is the first to get into the Secret Society.

It turned out that she knew an awful lot of members, especially the boys- heh. She gave them all Tiger masks so that future sims can tell them apart from the rest.

Ariel Capp found that her and Demetrius Summerdream (a fellow Pleasure sim) had a 3 bolt attraction and it wasn't long before they were dating regularly.

Demetrius' twin brother Lysander was still in love with Mallory Mace- that troublemaking teen who always snuck out with the home 'hood teens and got them busted. She's a ROMANCE sim, heh, that might explain it. She seems to harbour a desire for Fortune though as she often spun up those wishes to buy things, earn creativity points and sell masterpieces and so at the end of her Sophomore year she changed to Fortune.

Gregory Capp is the last sim in the dorm and is all about working for skills, money and making contacts. Poor Mallory must have been up too late and fell asleep in her spaghetti.

Once a member at the SS Gregory decided to modify his facial structure-

He was very pleased with the results!
They spent their time skilling and chilling.
Not all members of the SS get on- here two of Bottom's former lovers are always fighting.
So far just Mallory and Demetrius are yet to join the club.

Bottom has graduated with a 4.0 in Drama. She is currently at the Dorm using her remaining hours until she goes back to the 'hood.
Ariel is a Senior with 2 semesters to go.
Mallory, Lysander & Demetrius are all Juniors and Gregory is a Sophomore.
Wishes for each varied with skilling, hobby related wishes, dancing - a lot (smustling and dancing with other sims are the most popular here). Next round I hope to get a bit more done with badges- something I have been seriously lacking this round. :)
You can check the intro/stats page here to see the round scores and a current pic of the 'hood.
Off to Pleasantview for Round 7! See you back here after and happy simming.  

Isabella Monty- Round 3- House 8

Welcome to Isabella's new home. Last round she moved as she wishes to raise 20 kitties as her LTW and the Monty Ranch needed the free space for Juliette to get her 6 kids, :D

Last time Isabella's friend and ex-repairman Seth moved in, after a few tweaks of turn on/off's they got a couple of bolts and Isabella wasted no time in getting married as per her wishes. She's a Family sim, after all.

The party went very well and it looks like most of her grandkids haven't yet changed out of their wedding outfits, :D

Seth and Isabella enjoyed using their influence during the party to have other sims talk to/entertain and play pranks on one another.

Isabella is shedding a tear as her latest newly grown up kitty goes off to be re-homed.

Her two original cats, Star and Stripe are happy to continue making kitties though.

Isabella has some fun training them up. They've both hit the top of one career and are working on another.

Seth got an Elder job in Medicine and that also helps the family funds. Isabella has her pension as well as the cats' jobs bringing money in.

Isabella had several wishes this week to invite Sims over and what better way to get to know all her grandkids than this?

She's in the kitchen of course making her famous Baked Alaska.
Romeo will always be her favourite grandson but she has made good friendships with Bianca's teens this week as well.
Another hearty sip of elixir keeps Isabella 3 days younger, :)
As the week draws to a close Isabella's latest batch of kitties are destined for adoption.
Seth is happy skilling when not helping out with family or kitty matters.
See you next round!
Isabella- This round Isabella saw 4 new kitties arrive. She's halfway to her LTW as she's now raised 10. Isabella also wished to command and praise her cats, as well as them learning new tricks. She had wishes to gain skills, tell jokes, invite people over and serve food as well as marrying Seth, of course. :)
Seth- A Knowledge sim with a LTW to max his skills. Nice and easy to please, :) Mainly wished to skill, also wanted a job, to get fit, invite sim over and buy clothes as well as stargaze.
They are a happy family to play. :)
Next up a Uni and final roundup score!

Antonio Monty- Round 3- House 7

Welcome back to Antonio's. Here he is with his twins and their initial wishes...

The eternal chef Antonio wishes to serve food, talk about his hobby (Cuisine), talk to Miranda and play the piano.

Beatrice wishes to be best friends with Keith Cormier, talk and blog about her arts & crafts hobby and talk to Bottom.

Benedick wants to talk to Bottom, buy some electronic games and get into private school.

Benedick got all self conscious when he had a breakout of zits just before the Head arrived, but all went well and he and Beatrice were accepted.

Beatrice made best friends with Keith and then had a wish to Go Steady.

She often brought Keith home from her teen job but was only allowed supervised visits inside the house. Her dad is old fashioned like that.

Pot, Kettle I say Antonio! Remember during the Monty Ranch round he was always at Miranda's doing the wild thing. He did have a few wishes to talk to and play with her this round, but no romantic wishes at all, so she's off the hook (whew) and Antonio is happy as a single dad, throwing parties and making friends.

Half way through the week it was the twins' birthday. They are both family sims, Beatrice has a LTW to graduate 3 kids from college and Benedick wants to reach his Golden Anniversary. They had a few college wishes, usually after they'd had their daily phone calls to Bottom Summerdream but they rolled away quickly.

Haha, it's safe to say that Beatrice got the better birthday outfit. That's Keith Cormier standing by Beatrice, she chose to grow him up with her.
Benedick had been friends with pizza girl Jane for some time and wished to propose once he turned adult.
Antonio was keeping himself busy. Now at the top of his career he learnt fire safety as well as enjoying daily hikes.
His second LTW was to reach the top of the entertainment career and he finally found the job as the week went on.
His secondary aspiration of Fortune got a nice hit when he earned 100K! Go Antonio.
Before the week was out Antonio became an Elder.
After a change of clothing he went back to his nature roots, catching bugs and butterflies.
The younger ones had wishes for new clothes and so they went off to the community lot.
Did I mention that Jane is a ROMANCE sim?! eek, didn't know that. :D She got a wish fulfilled anyway- heh.
Beatrice came back in the workout gear she went in, but kept her original outfit, the others got new looks, I decided to keep Jane in red. It's spring/summer so they have appropriate attire. They also bought jewellery and played games/chatted with friends according to wishes at the lot.
On Sunday the twins threw a joint wedding party. Their grandma Isabella and all their cousins and friends came.
There are Romeo and plantsim Mercutio still smustling... Bottom could have made the effort to wear a dress I think?
Beatrice and Keith snuck off to get started on those family wishes, heh.
Here's Jane and Benedick in their wedding snapshot,
and Beatrice and Keith.
I wonder what the next round has in store for them?
Antonio had lots of nature wishes daily- to go hiking, blog, catch bugs. He also wanted to talk to Miranda, then when she came over- appreciate, tell joke, play with etc, no romantic type wishes though. He served food daily, liked a gossip, played the piano, learnt Fire safety and earned 100K this week.
Beatrice- wished to make friend/best friend, sneak out (didn't work- every time I tried she snuck out but never came back, lol (must've been having too much fun) so I had to give up), talk to Bottom, go steady with Keith, blog about her hobby and increase her creativity skill. Keith Cormier moved into the house with 13K, he's a Family sim too and wants to reach the top of the Education career.  They both had get engaged/throw wedding party/get married wishes.
Benedick- Benedick wanted to skill a lot too, also to make pancakes, buy stuff, talk to Bottom, get into private school, get engaged to Jane, then married. He was the most boring if you like in that nothing much new rolled around.
Looking forward to the next round with them and married life!
