University H2

And we're back at university. Last Round this house was drama central, this time we'll check up on Juniors, Angelica Eich, Kana Wong, Flora Devivio; and new Freshman, Annatto Eich. Have things calmed down with the two couples living in this house? Lets find out ((Just a warning, this entry is completely uneventful))

When Annatto moved into the Dorms, Flora was there to welcome him to College

Flora told Annatto that their 4th roommate had moved out and that there would be room in the rental if he wanted to join them. Annatto agreed that he would move in when Sierra had gotten all of her things moved into the Greek house. In the meantime, Annatto had decided to pledge the Greek House himself

He also declared his major to history

When Annatto finally was able to move out of the dorms and into his sister and girlfriend's rental he was met with an unexpected sight, his sister's girlfriend in her underwear

Kana was very nice and welcoming, but Annatto thought to himself that it was going to be a very long 2 years if he had to see all the females in the house wandering around in their underwear

Annatto insisted that Angelica and Kana pledge into the Greek house so that they could join he and Flora at the Greek house parties

In the middle of pledging a strange man showed up and insisted Angelica come with him. She figured that it was all part of the hazing process so she agreed to go

She later found out that it wasn't part of being inducted into the Greek House, but an even more Elite club on campus, the Landgrabbe Society

When Angelica arrived home the Greek house members cheered her on then admitted her and Kana into the Greek House

Flora just chuckled to herself about Angelica's ordeal and told her that she shouldn't tell Kana and Annatto what would inevitably be happening to them as well

Kana was a semester behind Flora and Angelica but at the end of Sophomore year, she decided that she loved Angelica too much to continue her Romance aspirations. She thought that she and Angelica would have the best possible life meeting people and having a good time, so she switched to Pleasure to complement Angelica's Popularity aspirations.

New LTW: Become a Celebrity Chef

Angelica was exstatic to hear about Kana's change of heart regarding aspirations, they celebrated the best way they knew how

The year moved along quickly ((thanks to College Clock)). Angelica, Flora and Kana had some major cases of senioritis, but Annatto had to keep working on his homework and papers to excel at his classes

In the middle of a snack break one night, a young blonde man barged through the front door and not-so-nicely demanded that Annatto come with him. Annatto was uneasy, but too tired to fight back, so he went

He was happy to see many of his college acquaintances at the Secret Society lot, and chatted with them a little bit before heading back to the rental for bed

A couple weeks later, almost on cue, Kana got her secret society induction. It happened the same way as the others before

Kana wasn't nearly as popular as her girlfriend and she didn't know many of the other members, but she figured that Angelica was able to pull some strings to get her in

Graduation was fast approaching for the seniors, Angelica invited her parents over to finally meet Kana and to take some of her things back to her Aunt Tia's house in Silvervale so she would have less to lug along when she graduated

Despite their slacking, all three seniors graduated with top honors. Angelica came home with a 4.0 in history

And Kana received a 4.0 in Literature

Both ladies promptly called the taxi to head back to Silvervale where they would be moving in with Angelica's Aunt Tia

Flora came home later, also earning a 4.0 in Drama

With the house to themselves, Flora and Annatto said their goodbyes promising to talk every day until Annatto finished college

Later that evening, Flora went back to Silvervale, planning to move back in with her father, Jack Copur

((Geez all my girls grew up in Kimonos... lol))

Scoring: 3 points for the SCL graduates

((Yeah, so completely uneventful I know but I was on University burn out after playing the Greek House. Plus this group is pretty boring, they never really want to do anything fun. Flora will be going back to live with Jack, Annatto will move in there when he graduates. Angelica and Kana are going to live with Tia to carry on the Eich family name there. And that's where we're headed next!))

Devivio 4 (R9)

When last we visited this lot, Brittany became pregnant. With hormones running wild, Brittany couldn't resist playing tricks and casting spells while she was out shopping. Kurt found a job in the Oceanography career, and started advancing toward his goal of becoming Hand of Poseidon. Tabitha adopted a puppy that she named Scout and he became her only source of companionship because she didn't like socializing with anyone else. At the end of the round, Brittany gave birth to a son they named Nicholas. Lets see what happens this round.

Jar Card 136: Add soap to a fountain when the Garden Club is visiting

Being pretty high-up in the Oceanography career, Kurt had a lot of time off of work. He decided to start a garden to keep him busy on the days he had off

Unfortunately, while Kurt was off at work, the other members of the family had to pitch in and help with the gardening. Kurt planned to invite the Garden Club over and apply for membership, he wanted the plants to be in tip-top shape

Surely enough, When Kurt got home from work, he called up Armando Cox, head of the garden club and begged them to come do an inspection even though it was late in the evening

Brittany, perturbed about the backbreaking work she had to do in the garden decided to try and thwart her husband's attempt to get admission into the club, she added some detergent to the fountain that Kurt had installed in the front yard for the occasion

To Brittany's chagrin, the Garden Club inspectors didn't notice the soap, they didn't, however, think that the pink flamingos were in very good taste

Similar to the plants outside, baby Nicholas was growing like a weed, soon it was time for his transition into toddler-hood

Brittany and Kurt were definitely looking forward to the fact that Nicholas would be able to communicate a little better and not just eat, sleep and poop

Nicholas grew into a very handsome little guy and definitely favored his Dad in looks and personality

Nicholas Devivio - Libra

Luckily for Nicholas, Kurt and Brittany were on opposite schedules so they didn't have to hire a nanny for the time being. When one parent was at work, the other handled the toddler training

The next day when Kurt arrived home from work, he achieved his dream of being Hand of Poseidon. The family was definitely on the road to success

That evening it was time for another birthday. Tabitha was about to cross the threshold into being a teenager.

Tabitha waited patiently for her family to gather around and then blew out her candles

She may not have been the most social creature, but she was definitely the nurturing type, it was no surprise to her parents that Tabitha declared that she wanted to devote her life to family

Tabitha hoped she could find a chubby mechanic who wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer

Tabitha Devivio - Scorpio
Family (LTW: Marry off 6 Children)

Becoming a teenager was a pivotal moment not only for Tabitha but for her mother too. Now that Tabitha was old enough, she could cross the realm into the occult and learn her mother's witchy ways. As soon as they got a moment alone, Brittany bestowed the rite on her daughter

Under Brittany's tutelage, it didn't take long for Tabitha to advance in her mother's Dark ways. Brittany wanted to help Tabitha in any way she could, so she conjured up an evil throne for Tabitha to have all to herself

As Tabitha was advancing in her magical prowess, Brittany was slowly moving forward in the Military track thanks to a smart decision

As per their arrangement, it was Kurt's turn to take care of Nicholas for the afternoon

Brittany had been feeling very sluggish lately, she chalked it up to having a toddler until one day she was in her study practicing her magic and the tell-tale signs of pregnancy crept up on her

Brittany had a very rough pregnancy, she stayed in bed most of the time. However, when she wasn't sleeping, she was usually watching sports on the TV

9 months is a long time to watch game after game, it was no surprise that Brittany earned a plaque for her devotion to the hobby

Before anyone realized, Nicholas' was ready to leave his toddler year behind and transition into a child. Since Brittany was very highly pregnant by this point, Tabitha helped Nicholas blow out his birthday candles

If it was possible, Nicholas was even more handsome as a child than he had been as a toddler

Nicholas Devivio

He and Tabitha were polar opposites, Nicholas craved attention from anyone around him, and he was nice to boot.

He was also always bringing home kids from school and actually got along well with them.

Nicholas was so outgoing that he didn't hesitate to ask if his parents would try and get him and Tabitha into private school. Despite Brittany reaching the end of her pregnancy, Kurt and Brittany reluctantly agreed

The pleasantries were short-lived during the headmaster visit. Brittany was just coming to the table to join the family and headmaster for dinner when her water broke

In all his years as an educator visiting people's homes, the headmaster had never gotten to experience a birth during one of his visits

Just as surprising as Brittany going into labor during the headmaster visit was the fact that she didn't give birth to one baby, but twins!

Just when they thought they were in the clear, Kurt and Brittany would have two more babies to raise, not just one that they hoped for. They had one girl that they named Jaina who favored her mother, and a boy that they named Germain

Jaina Devivio

Germain Devivio

Despite being an evening of surprises, Tabitha and Nicholas got accepted into private school and the headmaster promised to come back when the twins were ready to apply as well.

Scoring: 5 points (1 point for Kurt's TOC, 1 point for Kurt fulfilling his LTW, 1 point for Brittany's Sports Hobby Plaque, 1 point each for Jaina and Germain)

Household Net-Worth: 107,521

((Well this round was full of surprises. Surprise #1: Nicholas has 10 nice points! He's such a sweet kid, too bad his pre-destined aspiration is romance /sadface. Surprise #2: Brittany getting pregnant. This was only a semi surprise considering she's fairly youthful having consumed all that cow plant juice. I was hoping she'd get pregnant with another son that can inherit the house... well I got my wish +1. Surprise #3: MOAR twins! Seriously what is with my game giving me so many twins lately. This is set 2 out of 4 -- yes 4 lots this round ended up with twins, argh! I think all my sims are taking vows of celibacy next round otherwise my hood population is going to explode even more than it has been. Needless to say, Brittany is now on birth control. Here are a few out-takes:

The nanny is definitely not happy with Kurt, or being eaten by the cow plant.

The zombie thing just wasn't doing it for me... it was time to let Corey go

We're going to head back to Sim State again and see what Flora, Angelica, Kana and Annatto got into hopefully things are more peaceful this round.))
