Yu 2 – Round 17: ‘Moving On, Pt. 1′

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , — Mao @ 10:33 am

Ryu and Tracey Yu may have come together under… questionable circumstances, but they are happy nonetheless. The twins, however, are still quite a handful.

Tracey was elated to have more children, though she did miss Michael terribly. She put all her attention towards the twins, trying to push away her saddness. She was sure once Michael was more readily able to make his own decisions, she’d see him.

Just as long as Tracey didn’t have to see Gordon, that is. His threat had chilled her to the core. The less she saw or heard of him, the better. He was terrifying to her now.

Surprisingly, there had been little drama due to the result of their mutual break-ups and sudden marriage. Ryu’s children had been a little… baffled, but they were older and too busy with their own lives to really care too much. Tracey was well-aware of the fact that Ryu had been married to the mayor and made sure not to give Alyssa any opportunities to make her pay for it.

Even with the twins keeping them busy at all hours, Tracey and Ryu were quite happy.

Of course, once the twins became toddlers, their alone time pretty much stopped. Shelly and Marcus weren’t bad, they were just insanely curious, as all toddlers tend to be. Tracey solved this by putting a little table for them to play on in the living room. It kept them occupied and far, far away from the toliet and other dirty things they loved putting their hands into.

Ryu and Tracey took care of the twins in shifts. Ryu was at the top of his career, so he had more flex time. He mostly took care of the children during the day, though his phone rang off the hook and he spent a considerable amount of time hunched over his computer. He was more than happy to support Tracey’s dream of reaching the top of her field. After all, it had been Ryu himself who recruited her.

Tracey took over at night, right after she got home from work. She was defintiely busy at work, but always happy to come home and play with the twins. She wasn’t tired, she was exhausted, but having children was tiring work and it was just something you learned to deal with. She really didn’t want to miss out on anything… especially given how much of Michael’s life she was being forced to miss.


Note from Mao: This round FLEW by, seriously. I barely got these pictures. It was like clockwork and before I knew it, it was over. Sheesh! Twins keep them busy, that’s for sure. And how funny is it that this lot is “yu 2″? /snickers

Note about the Site: Perhaps you noticed that BS was down/blank for the past 15 hours. Issue with WP. Now fixed. Also, I used an online genealogy thing to make an interactive hood family tree. It is very, very cool. You can see it here.


  1. The online genealogy is very cool-nice work with the layout and such!

    I must admit, I love just looking at your photos-your graphics card must be amazing!

    Thanks, I’ve seen people use it for legacies, but I wasn’t sure if it could handle a full-scale hood tree! As for my graphics, I do have an extremely high-end system… but the sims 2 sort of ignores higher end graphic cards, simply because it so old. I sharpen pictures for BS to make them, well, sharper? LOL!

  2. Wheew…all caught up and so many things happened along the way, there’s never a quiet day in BS :) Tracey seems so happy, getting away from Gordon was the best thing for her, even better than escaping the island.

    I saw the new splash page last night (very cool pic there) and assumed you were in the process of updating, so I wasn’t going to start worrying until today. My wp luck is contagious, sorry :) The family tree is great, especially the ability to adjust the view, and so helpful in keeping everyone straight.

    Hehe, this is true! Yeah, Tracey didn’t have the sort of personality to handle Gordon, way too submissive. Thanks! I change the portal layout every few months or so. :) So it wasn’t that, it’s completely separate from the actual wordpress plug-ins. It was apparently a malicious thing that I had to have the ASO people fix. Bah. I’m glad you liked the family tree, I had so much fun with it.

  3. very adorable as usual! A nice calm family once again this round. I’ve always wondered where maxis got their idea of toddlers bein amused by toilets…

    Hehe, I’m not sure, but it’s really gross!

  4. First off…lovely new portal layout. <3 Ah, twins. They’re so cute…but oh so evil. And yay, family tree! It’s all snazzy too.

    haha, thanks! No more twins, for the love of everything, no mooooreee! /cries

  5. Twins invading BS? They are both adorable. The family tree is looking awesome, Mao! :D

    Haha, I’m glad you’re pleased, Josh. You’re the toughest critic of family trees! ;)

  6. It’s nice to see that they’re happy together. One of the few happy couples in this crazy town right now. Let’s just hope it lasts – I certainly wouldn’t want to have Gordon on my back, or Alyssa either!

    Haha, if everyone was happy, what fun would that be? ;) Yeah, they better tread lightly. They’re in trouble on both sides of the law.

  7. Ha, I’m glad I’m not the only one who snickeres everytime I read the lot name Yu 2. And the family tree is very exciting – I’m a bit of a genealogy nut, so I imagine I’ll spend some of my spare time working out exactly how related everyone is.

    There’s a neat feature called ‘relationships’. Select two names and the site will tell you how they’re related. It’s very cool!
