Catching up with Suzette
I haven't posted any unnecessarily long stories about the doings of female
Romance Sims for awhile *8) so let's catch up with Suzette Somnius (of the
Through College Challenge and one or two other
As hinted elsewhere, Suzette prospered after moving to the Neighborhood from
SSU, being one of our first car owners and downtown visitors.
And generally rocking.
Naturally she kept up with her good friends from college
and with their friends.
A lovely coed who came over with someone else
She also fit right into the local Romance community.
Sally Raptor -- the original
And she managed to mostly behave herself around the normals also.
Jean and Jane Danvers
That's Mad Scientist Jean, pregnant with
James at the time, and her grown eldest daughter Jane, one of Jan and Jen's
mothers. Danverses all over the place, basically.
Suzette's Lifetime Want was the old reliable "Woohoo with 20 Different Sims"
(just like Eleanor).
I won't waste space with the gory details, but she launched into the
project with (heh heh) abandon.
Donte Graham looks gratefully heavenward.
i.e. right into the camera.
I forget what number he was.
One of her favorites was a Downtownie beauty named Danielle Kody.
Sweet, although a desperate criminal.
"Yes, world domination in fact."
A long afternoon in the tub.
The water was especially clear that day.
A fond goodbye.
Danielle's Romance too; they get along great.
Suzette met Gina Raptor shortly after moving to the Neighborhood.
They also got along great, natch.
A rare shot from the Floating Art Platform at
The Pool. Hardly anyone ever goes there, because there are lots of stairs and
no particular point.
Late in her lifetime quest, she started to spend
considerable time at Gina's house.
Not only does she have cool toys, but it's a
good place to meet people.
One evening they decided to take a spin in the car.
One of those spins that happen entirely in the
Afterward, Suzette found the world unexpectedly perfect.
This was the first time I've had a Sim fulfill
a LTW while non-controllable! I'd forgotten that Gina-in-a-car counts as a
different Sim than Gina-in-a-bed for the purposes of this Want, and was quite
surprised when the game gave me the "Suzette has just fulfilled a lifetime want!"
Sally Raptor stayed just the same after her first fulfillment; her daughter
Eleanor changed pretty radically. What did Suzette do?
She moved in a friend!
Another Criminal Mastermind looking for a place
to lay low.
Danielle Kody, here's your plumb-bob!
We had a little fun with Suzette and Danielle.
Danielle, it turned out, was tired of a life of crime.
"What I'd really love would be to get into sports."
"You know, tennis, whiffle ball, curling;
just generic sports."
With Suzette's encouragement, she boldly changed careers.
Sports Jobs Dot Com
It's not like they need the Criminal Mastermind
salary; Suzette's been at the top of the Paranormal track for awhile here, and
Cult Leader pays pretty well.
Can't have a Romance Sim without some egregious Romance pictures:
Another lovely coed.
Carefully arranged while Suzette is busy elsewhere,
Hm, I think this guy is currently Phoenix Raptor's
boyfriend; but that's another story.
So life was good.
Shop talk over cards.
This is in the fancy rec-room that Suzette's put
in over the garage. It's got a card table, bathroom, lots of art, a single bed for
when someone is sick or just needs to be alone, and that phone that you call the
Grim Reaper on. Not that anyone's ever died...
Danielle talked so glowingly of the Neighborhood Sports Scene that Suzette decided
to sign up also.
Good thing there's a big demand for players.
In fact Suzette's second LTW is the same as
Danielle's first: Hall of Famer. A nice coincidence that I couldn't resist.
They enjoyed going to work together.
That must have been Foreshadowing before.
Note amusing thought balloons.
They were about equally far from their goal,
skill-wise. But they can afford good equipment.
Mental as well as physical.
And soon they were both near the top of the ladder.
I wonder if they both coach the same team?
Might be awkward if not. Or interesting.
So inevitably, one day...
Aren't they cute together?
In their Official Hall of Fame Leather Jackets.
So what now? Will one or the other move out? Will they get married?
Catch each other cheating and have an enormous falling out?
One interesting development:
Suzette's been seeing alot of Professor Nolan again.
Note Danielle carefully not looking out the window
in the background.
She's also given up sports, and (showing an unsuspected talent for the stage) is
currently starring in a Broadway show. This means that she's often home now when
Danielle is at work.
Which offers certain possibilities.
In fact we've been listening for the lullabye music;
haven't noticed it so far, though. Among other things I want to see how Danielle will
react if Suzette comes to breakfast with an ickle bulge!
(Putting Suzette into Show Biz was an utter spur-of-the-moment thing. It does mean
that I've got my first Dr Vu's Automated Cosmetic Surgeon; naturally, it's on the lot
where two of my best-looking Sims live! But maybe they can invite Sandy Bruty over for
So whew; there's one lot brought up to date! *8) More no doubt on other evenings...
