Yu 3 – Round 19: ‘Polyamorous, End’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 5:20 pm

Shang Yu and Katarina Anderson have an ‘open’ relationship that suits them just fine, but how will this affect James’ development into a teenager?

It hadn’t taken long for Shang to coax Elena back into his presence.  She was hot, he was hot, and their mutual hotness was enough so that two consenting adults might enjoy one another’s attractiveness.  Of course, Elena wasn’t thinking clearly at all when she got into her little ‘fling’ with Shang, but those sort of concerns weren’t something Shang dwelled on.

He preferred to dwell on more pleasant things like making out and well, you know.    Just because he and Katarina had an open relationship didn’t mean they were distant.  No, instead, they were closer than ever.  There was a mutual sort of love and understanding that neither found anywhere else and it helped strengthen that bond.  They didn’t love the other people they messed around with, so that was a good enough justification not to stop their anti-monogamy.

Shang wasn’t the only one enjoying himself, Katarina also enjoyed her share of males.  She didn’t always go nearly as far as Shang, though.  Only with select few.  Fou-Lu was a fun distraction, but she mostly felt bad for his situation and offered to help cheer him up.  It was one of those instances where she used her wiles to help another.  They didn’t do anything serious, just a little messing around.  She didn’t have the heart to tell him Elena had been visiting frequently.

Despite their amorous lifestyles, Katarina and Shang were still capable of domestic moments such as dinner.  It was one of the few times that James actually found his family life normal.  He wasn’t quite sure what to make of all the different people he saw or met, but he did know that his parents didn’t argue or fight like many others.

Still, it was a little weird.  Especially when he saw people he knew were his friend’s or relative’s parents.

Shang was especially proud of his ability to sway Cara Anderson away from her riches and pleasantries and into a world of debauchery.  It was dangerous messing with her, this was true, but who wouldn’t?  She was the epitome of hot, she was the new Alyssa.  And so it was that she fell into the destructive trap…

Cara was more than a little bothered by Katarina walking in directly afterwards.  She was worried a scene would be started or worse, she’d tell her brother.  Instead, Katarina acted as if nothing was amiss and called out to Shang.

“James wants you then, when you’ve got a moment.”

“Just finishing up here, babe.  Tell ‘em I’ll be up in a minute.”

As he had and still did with Hugh, Shang spent time with James.  It was easy to balance love and family with his current lifestyle.  It was easy-going and carefree, the way he had always dreamed of living.  His age was catching up with him, so he was thankful for this degree of pleasantness.

James would be a teen soon and Shang was preparing himself for the onslaught of questions…

James became a teen that showed no signs of his Anderson heritage, but instead, favored the Yu’s.  In fact, he looked so similar to Zhou Yu it was a little disturbing.  Thankfully, he was nothing like his love struck parents and preferred more practical things in life, like knowledge.

He, as with the rest of the Yu’s, had an natural ability with music.


Mao edit: Things might be a little slow around here, sorry.  Still not feeling too great and I’ve been messing around with Spore.  Anyway, I played this several days ago, so I actually don’t remember James’ aspiration!  Oops.  I think it was Knowledge.  :P


  1. *Giggle* I really like these two together…hey, if an open relationship works well for these two, then good for them. ;) Since James is knowledge he’ll probably be just fine as well. I hope, haha. If he ended up as romance, I think we’d all have occasion to worry!

    Haha, yeah, they seem to be happy! I’m soo glad James didn’t roll Romance. Too many Romance sims!

  2. ….well. Just a normal day with the Yu. xD srsly. That’s all I can say. Shang plays in dangerous territory, as usual. And the music lives on!

    Hahaha, with Shang, you mean. The rest of the Yus have no problems being monogamous. ;)

  3. I just realized that I have that hair you used on Cara- MATY ftw.

    James does look similar to someone, and how creepy that both Elena and Fou-Lu ended up there, with the romancers. *shudder*

    Haha, yeah, it’s from the EA store. Fou-Lu was unwittingly seduced and taken advantage of… Elena knew what she was doing. ;)

  4. …and so Shang conquers another Anderson lady. Fou-Lu and Elena really give new meaning to “seeking comfort elsewhere” they managed to seek comfort in the SAME place despite the different people.

    Hahaha, yeah. Fou-Lu only ended up with Katarina because she needed another lover and they had two bolts.

  5. Nice to see that Shang and Katarina are doing well, they make a fun couple and they really seem right for each other. But I’m glad that James didn’t turn out like them – for the sake of your sanity, mostly. :)
    Lol, how considerate of Katarina to help poor Fou-Lu out in time of need :)
    James really does appear to look like a true Yu, even more so than Shang. I’m guessing it’s because Katarina has some Yu blood in her, too.

    They really do get along, which makes me happy. I just wish Shang would stop interfering in other marriages! That’s probably true.

  6. What a very interesting and happily-dysfunctional family, lol!

    And oh my! What a train-wreck Elena and Fou-Lu have become… but I’m still holding out hope for them.

    They are quite strange. ;) And yeah, train wreck indeed. Fou-Lu still wants Elena, though. Elena just doesn’t know what she wants.

  7. Go away for a week and WoW! So much happens but I managed to restrain myself from commenting to every single post lol Sade and Kit’s emails had me falling off my chair and Gordon not killing Laci :o

    I never would have thought that Shang would find someone just as romance minded as himself, but this couple seems to have worked out the oddest yet most successful relationship in town. Shang even manages to work in time to be a good dad

    Shang tries, but his exploits are kinda obvious to his kids. I guess that’s better than lying about it!

  8. Darnit, I was hoping Cara wouldn’t fall into his trap! I know she had to feel a little uncomfortable when Katarina walked in, and weirded out when nothing came of it. Elena and Fou-Lu… *shakes head* There’s nothing to say that hasn’t been said already. Thank goodness James turned out differently.

    Cara had wants, so I considered that falling into the trap. Same with Elena. ;)
