Yu 3 – Round 18: ‘Polyamorous, Pt. 7′

Filed under: Anderson,Yu — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 8:57 am

Shang Yu is happily divorced and has drug his long-time-lover Katarina Anderson and his 2nd son, James, along with him to his new home in Downtown.

Despite their difference in age, Shang and Katarina had always gotten along famously. They even understood one another to the point of neither so much as blinking an eye at the other’s indiscretions. Granted, Shang took the cake when it came to things like that, but Katarina was no angel herself.

Now they were together in an ‘open’ relationship. Shang was home from his tour for awhile and Katarina spent a lot of time helping him tweak certain songs.

“Tweak that one a bit, babe,” he said, strumming lightly, listening. “A little more, that should do it.”

Shang was well-known for his exploits with women and while most men of his ilk were horrible fathers, Shang was not. He cared deeply for both of his sons and made sure that they were taken care of. Hugh knew of his father’s ways and wasn’t dismayed when he saw him out with women, but James had quite awhile to go before he’d be able to understand.

Of course, with Hugh, it was easy. It was only his father, not both of his parents. Poor little James…

Cara Anderson came by to interview him for one of her columns–she was working her way up in the media–and he had to admit, that prim-and-proper bit was hot. He knew she was very married to Roman Anderson, but what could he say? Those Anderson women, he had a weakness!

He made a few little jokes and did his usual bit with the charm. He was surprised when she almost seemed responsive, but then suddenly, she drew away. Oh, this would be fun… even Kat would get a kick out of this!

James became a child and looked quite a bit like his father, though he certainly looked more like a Yu than anything. He had his father’s charm and seemed to be rather easy-going. Only time would tell if he turned out anything like his parents or not…

Shang and Lacie had a bit of an affair in the hottub and even while she was pregnant, Shang continued to charm her. He didn’t much like to hear her talk, but she couldn’t deny that she was smokin’ hot. He kind of pitied Nevio, though. He was Kat’s brother and well, he wasn’t a bad guy… just not too bright.

No one in their right mind would mess around with Lacie on a serious level. That woman should have been born with green eyes!

Being Downtown had definitely helped Katarina’s career. She was at the top of the party scene now–there wasn’t a huge event that she wasn’t invited to. Of course, she made sure she still had time for James. She was usually gone while he was asleep, anyway. She spent a better part of the day with him, helping him with his homework, and trying to embrace her maternal instincts.

James brought his Uncle Marcus home from school one day. He was quite surprised to find out that his friend was technically his uncle.

“It’s true, you know,” Marcus said in a sagely tone. “I’m technically your mother’s half-brother.”

“That’s… just weird.” James remarked, making a face.

Marcus laughed, “have you met your older brother yet? He’s technically my cousin!”


Note from Mao: Man, talk about twisted family trees! Poor James, I worry for his future. This house needs revolving doors. One scene I laughed too hard at to get a picture of was Katarina teaching James to do his homework near the stairs and front door. Two women came up in their underwear and immediately went to leave. Seconds later, Shang comes walking up the stairs in his underwear and makes a whistle motion at Katarina while walking by.


  1. This relationship is so messed up it actually works! I’m glad that they’re happy though. I hope James won’t be too scarred by all the inappropriate behavior he is sure to witness…

    He was pretty beside himself when Katarina and Shang got busy, simply because Shang and Alyssa had an affair. Which is soo messed up. I turned off jealously with insim for this lot because it doesn’t make sense for anyone to be jealous in this relationship.

  2. Ah, now I get the ‘projecting her own thoughts onto Roman’ bit from the last update. The thought of Shang and Cara togather somehow makes me LOL, I’m almost cheering for her to give in to the temptation.
    Shang is so awesome :) . You’ve got to love a sim who can pull the promiscuity thing off so well.

    Hehe, that was a bit of foreshadowing. ;) But if she did that, well, she’d be in a world of trouble if Roman found out…

  3. Wow, this house is very, very fresh. I am a bit glad it works for them though, it’s not really cheating if they don’t care, right? Right?

    And LOL @ your twisted family tree. After every update I find myself lunging for the family tree to see how someone is related to someone! :D

    OL, I think you’ve got it, Josh! And now you have a way to back you up when you yell at me for trying to hook up cousins. ;)

  4. I was wondering how you got rid of the natural (and constant, if it was on) jealousy that would be on this lot. James is so cute, he has the O’Hanlon freckles! It seems to be Shang’s goal to get in bed with every single woman with the Anderson last name. It’s almost funny. At least he makes up for it by being a great father.

    Hehe, James is quite adorable! Shang likes those Anderson women, it seems.

  5. Poor James is going to very wise when becomes a teenager with everything he is seeing now.

    He won’t need to learn about the ‘birds’ and the ‘bees’, that’s for sure!

  6. Poor little James indeed. Both his parents are…well..not exactly the best influences but I think he’ll be fine! Tsk tsk. Those Anderson women must have some sort of animal magnetism. But let’s hope poor little Cara doesn’t bite xD Not sure how Roman would take it, despite his seemingly lack of care for her. ..This family amuses me xD Shang is awesome.

    Hahaha, James will be interesting, at least.

  7. I’d be so wierded out if i found out one of my friends that’s the same age as me was my uncle xD

    Hehe, me too!

  8. I just realized that both of Shang’s children have the last name of Anderson. Hopefully Cara will realize that too and get away while she still can!

    You’d think that’d be a bit of a warning sign, huh?

  9. Shang, oh Shang, what will we ever do with you? Hitting on about all the Anderson women you can, he might as well be the sole father of all the Anderson children this generation!

    Shang is a trip! But fortunately, we have Nevio and Roman yet to help give birth to more Anderson children not fathered by Shang. ;)

  10. Oh, James, don’t try to figure out that tree, you’ll just give yourself a headache lol

    Shang and Kat together are an oddly appropriate couple, only these two could make an open relationship work.

    I know, it gives me a headache! They are good together.
