  • 1. Welcome back to Familiar Faces!Chapter Fifteen: Things That Make You Go Hmmm

2. By the middle of a sims journey through university their thoughts are less on their studies and more on what they will be doing once they leave campus; and who they will be doing those things with. They've had two years to scope out the possibilities and many of them will start focusing on one certain individual that captures their attention and their heart the most. 3. Other sims will continue to scope the possibilities with no thoughts of actually settling down and spending their lives with one specific individual. These sims will spend the remainder of their university time grabbing as much variety as they can fit into their portion of oats to be sowed. 4. At the end of our last chapter Demi Familiar and Chay Nova had just become the first of the generation five couples most likely to couple to make it official and become engaged. While I promised that we'd have more engagements coming up, don't worry I'm not going to do a play by play of ever couple in the generation. Even I'd get bored if expected to ooh and ahh over the nearly twenty match ups that were made for the members of this generation. 5. But I did spend a good deal of time working up the scene for Cort to make his move and he'd be pretty disappointed if I didn't let him shine. Don't however expect a bunch of gushy words from Cort, his three outgoing points combined with his single nice point makes gushing a thing not done. 6. His three serious points quickly got the point across to Celeste. And she grabbed up the gold ring that was adorned with a single diamond cut in the shape of a grilled cheese sandwich and shoved it on her finger before he could say psych! The newly engaged couple then adorned to his dorm where they were able to partake of the platter of grilled cheese that was previously unable to be pried from his inventory on the community lot. 7. There was one couple that was did not get engaged as quickly as expected. Anytime that legacy heir David mentioned the possibility of getting engaged to long time girlfriend Juliet, she'd just giggle and remind him that they had plenty of time to talk about the future, in well the future."I'm not going any place David I don't need a ring to know that we love each other. I'm happy with things the way they are now. I don't want them to change, and I'm afraid that if I take the ring that they will change."She'd then whisper something into David's ear and the two of them would quickly adjourn to the hot tub 8. Satisfied that she'd successfully distracted David once again from his desire to force her into a commitment she wasn't yet ready to make; Juliet wasted no time in proving to his various cousins that she was single and ready to mingle. The problem was that Juliet wasn't very umm discrete about her extra curricular love life. Though it appeared David was unaware of her behavior she was quickly becoming known to everyone else as the campus skank. 9. Rumors were being spread all over the place and the family was less concerned over what would happen IF David found out than WHEN he found out. Of course some family member's took finding out that Juliet was openly affectionate with less concerns for David's feelings than others.*Juliet's easy? SCORE!* 10. It wasn't that David was unaware of Juliet's activities so much as oblivious to them. He'd catch her in a compromising positions quite often only to marvel at how comfortable and friendly she seemed to be with everyone.*She's gonna make a great wife, she's already friends with almost everyone in the family* 11. When any of his friends tried to approach him about the situation and about how popular she seemed to be with the guys on campus it would just go in one ear and out the other."Of course she's popular Coop, have you seen her? She's gorgeous! What guy in their right mind wouldn't want to get with Juliet? Everyone knows she's my girl and that just adds to my prestige, they may want her but I have her." 12. And indeed when the two of them were together it did seem that David and Juliet were made for each other. Often, openly and embarrassingly affectionate with each other, no matter their audience. David seemed happy and all his family and friends wanted him to be happy so they didn't press the issue, knowing that eventually it would all work out one way or the other. And in the meantime there were parties to attend. 13. "Come on folks, lets get this party started! Dance till you can't dance till you can't dance no more!""Anyone?""Come on people! Some of you must want to dance?" 14. "Gah Dwight, when I asked you to pick out some classic jams to play at the party I meant music people might actually want to dance to. I don't think that 'The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins' qualifies.""What? Come on Dave, Leonard Nimoy does Tolkien? what's more classic than that?" 15. "Why are we dancing to this? Do you notice we're the only one's dancing?""Just keep smiling, we're making our youngest son happy.""While embarrassing the heck outa our oldest son in the process."(In unison) "WIN" 16. Dwight's quite the geeky little romancer, his personality defiantly doesn't suit his aspiration. But he stoically continues to march towards his goal of 20 woohoo's and he's got a string of girls that continue to call and ask him out for additional dates downtown most of which he accepts, occasionally two or three in the same night. His outing and date gifts have upped the value of the Greek house almost as much as the entire scholarship fund for this generation. 17. But despite his success as a romancer when he's invited to a party at one of the other lots he's rarely to be found fighting for a position in a hot tub with his companion of choice. When he can't grab one of the instruments he's generally found playing games with his friends or family members and if he asks to bring a friend to a party it's almost sure to be his grandma. Not that there's anything wrong with that of course, even at 80 Betty is the life of the party. 18. Chris wasn't quite as successful in the romance department as his cousin Dwight was, a problem which he tried to reason away by his being banned from the repetitive use of the wishing well. Personally I'd say the reason for it was less the lack of wishing well usage than his apparent inability to pick the right targets for his advances. 19. But then in the mid part of Junior year Chris met Sadie Landry, a fellow romancer and a member of the secret society. After a few hesitant dates it quickly became obvious to everyone that Chris was in a word whipped. He was seriously considering forgoing his romancing ways but before he did so he wanted some advice from the two men he'd come to admire most. 20. Which was how Kiernan Tricou, zombie and grandfather found himself doing the very thing he'd refused to do so many times in the past. Spending a Saturday at the park fishing with his son had never been high on his list of pleasurable activities to partake in."I can't believe what I'm hearing from you kid. You're a romance sim but you keep rolling the want to get engaged? Without rolling up the fear of getting engaged? The girl's got you twisted up. Kid she's got you by the err soccer equipment.""Chris do what feels right, just cause you're a romance sim doesn't necessarily mean you wouldn't be happy married. Just make sure that whatever decision you make that it's your heart telling you what to do and not your err soccer equipment." 21. "You know Chris when you called and asked me to hang out with you today cause you wanted some romantic advice, I thought we'd be sitting in a bar with a couple of brews right about now whistling at hot dames not standing here with sticks in our hands talking about marriage, with your father.""Fishing is supposed to be the manliest of manly bonding activities and you two need manly bonding as much as I needed advice from both of you." 22. "Sides this is fun, isn't it Dad? Look at this one I just pulled in, sure is a big one. Gonna make good eating." 23. "Yeah sure, this is thrilling Clint. No idea why I never thought I'd enjoy it. I musta been crazy or something. Have we bonded enough yet to go grab a beer?""Beer's good""I could do beer" 24. *Now this is more like it!*"Kid, do what feels right for you. But listen to your dad he's giving you good advice. If you love her, if you really love her, grab hold of her and don't let her get away." 25. By the end of junior year Kiernan was a semi regular visitor to the Greek house for a variety of reasons. He was getting to know his grandchildren better and getting some zombie loving in the process. All in all he was pretty happy man . . . err zombie. 26. It took a little while for the kids to adjust to the thought of their friend DJ and their grandfather (their grandfather for goodness sakes!) being an item. The first few times he showed up for meals unannounced they were pleased, but once they realized that the moans and groans coming from DJ's room weren't just her normal zombie mutterings they didn't know whether they should be disgusted or embarrassed 27. When Clint was let in on the affair during one of the traditional Greek house toga parties he wasn't so much disgusted as he was embarrassed Here he was about to be an elder and secretly hoping that his son would return home with a bride and present him with a few grandchildren to dandle in his old age and there was his father pinching a college girl's rear end. 28. Of course if he'd seen his wife at that dorm party the week before he'd have been even more embarrassed I was quite amused by it myself, at first I was a bit confused by how I'd gone four generations without noticing that one of my mascots was gay. But then I hovered the mouse over the character and realized that it was just Lucy in her away from home Llama
