B.S.U. Campus – Round 18: ‘You Turn the Screws, Pt. 2′

Zhou Yu and River Saunders have an awkward relationship, but with the addition of four others, their lives are about to get more interesting. Patrick O`Hanlon is happy to finally be free and explore his… options. Michael Saunders just wants to survive college; Elena Davis has her goal in mind, but her boyfriend Fou-Lu Yu doesn’t seem to have any ambition at all.

Elena, Michael, and Fou-Lu all traveled to University together. Michael had got stuck driving, while Elena and Fou-Lu often forgot he was in the front seat. It was a little weird to have to be in the same with car with your sister who is making out with someone you’ve known since childhood.

He was happy to be free of the confines of the car, while Elena was happy to finally be in college. Fou-Lu was just impressed with how hot Elena turned out to be.

Patrick arrived later that evening, having hitched a ride with a hot chick. Why he was so late was never put to question, as it went without asking. Patrick was pleased with his roommates, though he had wished desperately to have his own place. Still, having people to talk to was pretty cool, and he was related to some of these people, too, so meeting relatives was interesting.

It turned out Zhou wasn’t upset about Falco “flying the coop”, so to speak, and just bought about bird. It was this that brought their relationship into more official territory.

“It’s just a bird, babe,” Zhou had said, laughing. “He’s probably teaching his bird friends to swear, too. That’s cool with me.”

River chose to ignore the fact that the bird was quite possibly teaching other birds to swear and instead focus on Zhou’s unfaltering ability to be sweet.

Elena had done a lot of thinking during her time stuck in the house before coming to University. She decided to pursue her dream of being a world-famous dancer. As usual, Michael lingered in the background doing something boring and nerdy while she practiced.

It wasn’t long before Fou-Lu located her and extracted her from her practicing.

Michael had left in favor of less ‘intimate’ places while Fou-Lu pulled Elena into a hug.

“This dancing stuff isn’t so bad,” he said jokingly. “You look good in spandex.”

“Lu, stop it,” Elena scolded, though she made no move to pull away. “I have to do my exercises.”

“There are other ways of exercising if you’re that worried about it…”

She sighed, and smacked him hard on the arm, causing him to pull away. He gave her a look and broke out into laughter. She hit him again, lighter this time. He was such a joker and that worried her. Would he ever take life seriously?

As the first year came to a close, everyone fell into a routine. Michael and River had an art class together, despite their complete lack of creative skills. They found solace in one another’s company and general inepitude, muttering under their breath about the unfairness of college gen-ed courses as they hastily smeared gobs of paint on empty canvases.

Patrick and Zhou often studied together, though Zhou was horrified when his books got confused with Patrick’s. His mouth dropped when he opened the book to find a questionable picture of a co’ed… and upon dropping it, several more falling out and littering the floor.

“Dude!” Zhou said, gesticulating feverishly with his hands, unable to say anything else.

Patrick looked stunned as well, picking up a picture and admiring it, “I forgot I had this one.”

“Is that ou… our literature professor?”

Patrick grinned, snapping Zhou’s book closed and handing it over, “nice, huh?”



  1. “It was a little weird to have to be in the same with car with your sister who is making out with someone you’ve known since childhood.” Poor Michael. I can only imagine xD OH GOD! Zhou! You’re making me love you as much as your father! Teaching birds to swear..oh good lord. And Pat, wtf? What happened to you? D: Your parents had NO influence on you whatsoever and sleeping with Kat? Geez…That’s your uncle’s brother’s unofficial woman and your grandma’s niece. xD Man, those Anderson women…but poor Fou-Lou. He just didn’t bother to see it coming. Poor thing.

    Poor Michael, indeed! It’s a lucky thing that with all the traumatic experiences he’s been forced to endure that he isn’t crazy by now, lol. Zhou is a riot, and Patrick has always had the workings of an evil genius womanizer, it seems. Fou-Lu needs to get his crap together!

  2. :D Yay for River and Zhou!

    And poor Fou-Lu… his face in the last picture makes me want to go hug him. xD But better get your act together man.

    LOL, Fou-Lu will hopefully learn from this…

  3. Ahahaa! May Zhou’s swearing parrot spread its knowledge to the bird community. He has fufilled his duty to bring River and Zhou together, so fly freely you *beeping* parrot! :D

    LOL! …and so it was that all birds in Boreal Springs gave up their songs and replaced them with strings of swear words.

  4. I’m almost amazed Elena & Fou-Lu broke up, considering they’re both probably related to every other possible sim, not counting townies & what have you. P:

    We’ll see. But I wouldn’t keep two sims together just because of that, either.

  5. That picture of Patrick and Katarina made me laugh out loud. Silly romance sims.

    I also liked the picture of Michael fixing the computer. It was just like the one of Gordon back in college hacking his grades.

    As for Sade and Michael, come onnnnn.. They’re only second cousins once removed. Of course, they are second cousins once removed in two ways, but still, beautiful genetics cannot be denied!

    I know! When I took it, I thought, “this looks vaguely familiar”… and sure enough, here’s Gordon doing the same! The pictures are identical. And I know, I wish it could happen… but I already moved Michael to Uni, so he’s too old for her. :\

  6. o_O How do you break up with sims like in that last picture? The only way I know of it is cheating on them in front of them, but I’ve never known of a more ‘civil’ break up option.

    I have the “break up anytime” hack, plus InTeen forces you to be in a “committed relationship” if you want to eventually engage/marry. They were in a committed relationship and I just had Elena break it off.

  7. Awww, poor Fou-Lu, hopefully he’ll get his act together now. And Yay for River and Zhou! I’m feeling a little gushy over them :) It’s about time!

    Haha, yeah, here’s hoping!

  8. Looks like the beds in this house got quite the work out this round… Sheesh, now your sims don’t even make it to the wedding arch before they break up! Poor Fou-Lu!

    Indeed! It’s definitely a good thing I improved the house layout… it was getting cramped.

  9. wow-amazing update. Elena seems like she could be the next Gorden with her devotion to success.

    Haha, no, Elena just wants to have a good future.

  10. There are 3 clones in this house I almost forgot what Generation this is. Elena/Sara Patrick/Nathaniel and Michael/Gordon. Creepy.

    I just turned to the rounds page and remembered back when there was only four houses per round… that number has TRIPLED!!! And its only gen 4 (i think…) O_o

    Elena and Sara aren’t really alike because Elena is a bit more feminine/etc. They do look very similar, though! Patrick and Michael really look like their respective fathers, too. Yeah, but I’ve tried to keep it manageable… some prosperity challenges have like 10 house at round 2, wow.

  11. Lots of freshness this update! Poor Fou-Lo, getting dumped in college. Patrick is so fresh, he reminds me of Donato!

    I love River and Zhou together, btw. ^__^

    LOL, Donato and Patrick could be bros. River and Zhou are an odd, but amusing, couple!

  12. Patrick really came into his own in this update. I didn’t realize he was a romance sim but he’s making the most of it :)

    River and Zhou are great together but I feel awful for Fou-Lo, the poor guy looks so depressed.

    Fou-Lu needs to get his act together. ;) Yeah, the entry was a bit ago where he changed to a teen and rolled Romance.

  13. Ugh, stuck in the car with a making out sister? I can truly relate to Michael, ugh. *shudder* Teaching birds to swear… I love Zhou. I’m glad he and River finally “made it official.” Zhou and Patrick’s conversation had me LOL-ing.
    When I saw Patrick and Katarina, I had to walk away. I can’t even remember at the moment how they’re related, but I remember that I thought to myself, “Now that’s just wrong.” Better to keep to yourself Michael, you see how dysfunctional your relatives are…
    I feel for Fou-Lu. He looks so sad. I just thought about the fact that he and Basil seem to be absolute slackers. Maybe they can share strategies, lol.

    LOL! Yes, Fou-Lu and Basil are such slackers. As for Patrick and Katarina, is very distant relation, the game doesn’t recognize it (obviously). ;)
