Veronaville University Update Round 2

All Who Live Here:  Desdemona Capp and (adopted) Spencer Monty, Ariel Capp.

Strange that Knowledge Sim Bottom Summerdream did not roll University enough to be sent.  Maybe in round 3.

YA Cole Shin and Desdemona Capp
The first year of play, it was only Desdemona. She seemed socially inept, struck out with every Sim she approached to make friends. She was given the cold shoulder at every turn. Silly Freshmen!

At this point she decided to pick up where she left off back in Veronaville, and work on getting her tinkering badge.  She slides into the Zone, and gets her gold in robotics.

She gets into the zone while getting her gold in flower making...she figured she should spruce up her looks too, and used some of the money she earned selling robots and flowers to get a new haircut and clothes. 

She finishes her freshman year full of confidence, and still carrying a wish that her Pop Sim sister Ariel would join her in University. I usually ignore those 'I want so and so to come to University' wishes, but being that Ariel has been given the shaft on wish fulfilling and had miserable parties back in the hood, she joined Desdemona, as did Spencer Monty. I went back and read over the blog, and realized that Spencer needed to go as well. heh.

Spencer Monty
First wishes for Knowledege Sim Spencer upon entering University:  go to class, study with someone, do term paper, and do homework.  The first thing Spence did was get new clothes.  I couldn't bring myself to snap his picture when he first made it to the lot.  *shudder*.  Here he gets a needed creativity skill before he can do his term paper.  Yes, he does have a bit of a belly, due to his mom's (Isabella Monty) great cooking.

Pop Sim Ariel's first wishes - brother Hal goes to University, get into greek house, first kiss, and go to class.

Spencer Monty, YA townie Trisa Futa, Desdemona Capp
In an unusual move, Fortune Sim Desdemona spun up 'have party' in the middle of winter. Heh, and so it was. Naturally, the next thing she spun up was 'woohoo'. There was no one she as in love with. So it was locked in, the party commenced, it was a good party, the cops had to come and break it up. Her eyes cast upon Spence Monty, thinking he might be a good public woohoo candidate, being that they had two bolts and all, but there was no love between the two. Aha. Sims do not have to be in love to public woohoo. ;)

Spence Monty is not all good....

Ariel Capp and Spencer Monty
 Spence:  Hey Looky over there.....(While I stick all my darts right in the middle of the bulls eye)

Spence:  Now I will just sneak back to the line...


Spence:  Heheheh!

Ariel:  Oh my, oh my, I will never beat this....

Spence:  Yeah, I'm bad...I'm bad...

This is something I didn't know was possible in this game. Cheating at darts.

Townie Avri Tomyoy and Desdemona Capp
 Desdemona meets the Streaker...and influences him to...

Desdemona Capp and Avri Tomyoy
Do her homework..fuliflling a wish for her.

Spencer Monty, Desdemona Capp
Looks like another Monty/Capp romance.  At the end of her sophomore year, and the first day of Spring, Desdemona spins up 'be flirted with'.  Naturally her old lover Spence was on hand.  The two immediately fell in love.  This instigated an avalanche of Spence wishes.

Sophomore year started for Spence, and he begins wishing for family and friends to join him in University.  I don't think so, if I can get around it.  heh  He is throwing lots of wishes otherwise to play games, even though his chosen hobby is Music and Dance.  A ballet barre magically appeared in the dorm to maybe tempt him, but he has no interest.  heh

Heh.  While fulfilling a talk to Spencer wish, Desdemona spins up 'get engaged to Spencer'.   That immediately took precedence over the 'flirt' wish locked in.  And so it was!!!

For some reason, Desdemona received a negative engagement memory. She is a Fortune Sim.  hmmm.....

Spencer Monty
Heh.  Why do Knowledge Sims want to be struck by lightening?  I rarely am able to get this wish fulfilled.  :)  Time to hit the energizer, buddy!

Ariel Capp
Oh my goodness, this made me LOL.  Here, Ariel gets a wish fulfilled for having a good reputation. How, you may ask?  She chose her sister Desdemona to tell a joke to in order to get the wish fulfilled.  However, Desdemona was on her way to the bathroom.  So, Ariel just stands there in front of the bathroom door, staring, waiting for Des to come out..  I think, gee, this is awkward.  So I convince Ariel she should at least move away a bit to give Des room to come out.  BAM.  The Get Good Reputation wish is fulfilled.  I guess a Sim can get a good reputation for not stalking another Sim in the bathroom. heh  While I am sure that probably isn't the reason the wish was fulfilled without Ariel actually doing anything, it is funny to think it is.

Spencer Monty and Todd Gergis
Spence reaches maximum enthusiasm in Music and Dance, his chosen hobby.  Yes, he finally found his way to the ballet barre, however despite all this dancing and exercise, he still has a belly. 

Spencer Monty
Learns fire safety.

Desdemona Capp and Nerissa Inada
In her senior year, Des gains the Science award, fulfilling a major wish.

Trevor Nagai and Ariel Capp
In her Junior year, Ariel wins the hobby plaque in Arts and Crafts, fulfilling wishes.

Spencer Monty
Go you, Spencer!

Spencer Monty
Learned couples counseling.....

Desdemona Capp
Gets gold badge in pottery.....

And Des graduates, top of the class.  At this point she realizes she can choose a subaspiration, and rolls Popularity.   Buh-bye, Des!

Des wished to blog about mechanical and science, and to gain skills.  Occasionally wanted to talk about her hobbies.  She will need to patch things up with her grandpa Consort, as he is furious with her for peeking at him through the telescope. 

Dj Verse, Monica Bratford, Jessie Philferson, and Ariel Capp
At the beginning of her senior year, Ariel tries to get into the Greek House.  Although her wish for it had long spun away, she decided to play catch up and try for it.

She easily won the Greek House, and become Big Sim On Campus as well.  Go you, Ariel!  This is a far cry from he days back at home when the only attendees to her parties was her Grandpa Consort.

Ariel Capp and Grimmie
 Ariel also meets the Grim Reaper when pleading for Spencer's life.  And, she wins.

Grimmie, Spencer Monty and Ariel Capp
Spencer was showing the irritating 'be saved from death wish' that Knowledge Sims are want to throw...and would not shake it.  And so it was.  Spence gets a cool 8,000 aspiration points deposited into the coffers.

Spencer Monty
Spencer receives another large deposit of aspiration points when he maxed all skills practicing Charisma in the  mirror.  As a Knowledge Sim, this is a Power Want, and is Prosperity points.

Jordan Cormier, Gwen Johnson (suffering from the the dormie-ghosty syndrome), Angie Gray, Spencer Monty, and Ariel Capp
And, the  night before finals, Spencer gets abducted.   I had never had an abduction in University, EVER, so Spencer was benevolent enough to exercise his 'Summon Aliens' perk for me  so I could have one.  heh

Ariel graduates...

Spencer graduates... (must get him to the store...ugh.....)

And the three pool their Uni loot and buy this charming two building lot in Veronaville. 

It was the usual type with someone, smustle, blog about hobbies, skill, do research with someone/go to class, ect, ect, ect. 

Spencer earned:  Hobby plaque in Music and Dance (and an Alien Abudction).

Ariel earned:  Hobby plaque in  Arts and Crafts, gold badge in Toymaking.  24 friends, 3 best friends, and 16 best friends forever, Big Sim On Campus, and Greek House.

Desdemona earned:  Hobby plaques in Tinkering, Arts and Crafts, and Science.  Gold badges in Flower Arranging, Pottery, and Robotics. 

This ends this round in Veronaville.  Round 2 scoring:

Keep on Simming!



  1. Wow!! That was a lot happening for your Sims!
    And indeed some "firsts" in the game: I didn't know either that Sims can cheat at darts, or that they don't need to be in love for public woohoo - must remember that for my Romance Sims!
    Ariel and Desdemona look a lot better with their new hairdos... but why are they still walking around in full face makeup? That's always the first thing I do when I play their family, get rid of the makeup :-D
    I've never had an Alien abduction at university, either. Spencer did not return pregnant though, I suppose?

    1. I usually clean off the faces too when I play any EA family that has face makeup. However, I am playing wishes, so I am thinking they must 'wish' to wear it so it stays. heh. I decided that anyone in the 'makeup' familes and their descendants will wear it.

      About alien abductions in Uni, I read that if there is an abduction in University, the Sim will show their pregnancy back in the hood. This will be interesting to see if it happens. ;)

  2. What an awesome round! Who says Uni is boring eh?! I didn't know Sims could cheat at darts either, I guess I rarely have dart boards. ;)
    I love Ariel's new look, especially her dress! Me want. :D
    Another Capp/Monty romance, yay. Well done, nice score.

    1. Golly I can't remember where Ariel's dress came from. I will upload it so you can have it. I will send you the link via email.

    2. Thanks Wen, Merry Christmas! :)

  3. I was thinking Ariel, poor girl, was gonna have to make herself a Servo to make a friend! Can't wait to see if Spence is PG back in the 'hood. Interesting round, indeed!

  4. What an interesting uni round. I also did not know about cheating at darts. I have sims that play darts a lot, but either they haven't cheated, or I just haven't paid enough attention. Fun stuff. Also good to know about the public woohoo. I wonder if Spencer will get pregnant. I'm pretty sure they dropped the chance of it happening if you use Summon Alien, but I can't remember. It will be fun to see.
