B.S.U. Campus – Round 19: ‘You Turn the Screws, Pt. 3′

Patrick O`Hanlon is womanizing his way through University while Michael Saunders hits the books and keeps to himself. Elena Davis and Fou-Lu are no longer an item, but Elena is still uncertain about her decisions and Fou-Lu is hoping she reconsiders.

Patrick decided to call Elena out on her dealings with Shang Yu, “what are you thinking? I know you’ve got some semblance of a brain up there… you’re one of the few girls I know who does.”

“Gee, thanks, Patrick,” Elena replied, rolling her eyes. “And what’s it matter to you?”

“Shang and I are cut of the same cloth, Elena. Anything you two do isn’t special or serious or anything. He’s got Kat for that, he just wants you for, well, the obvious.”

“You think I don’t know that? I don’t want anything serious with him,” Elena replied, giving her nephew a pointed look. “Anyway, here’s a question for you… I’m almost afraid to ask. Are you wearing pants?”

He grinned, “what do you think?”


Fou-Lu decided to try and corner Michael into helping him get Elena back. Unfortunately, the stoic and quiet half-sibling was a little less than willing.

“Elena is a big girl, she makes her own decisions.” Michael said, barely looking up from his dinner. “Besides, I’m not so sure you’re ready to get her back.”

“Huh? What’s that supposed to mean?” Fou-Lu was a little shocked by Michael’s outright bluntness.

Michael looked up, startling Fou-Lu, “you’re immature, Fou-Lu. Grow up a little and I’m sure Elena will notice. I’m only telling you this in an effort to steer you in the right direction.”

“That’s harsh, dude,” Fou-Lu replied, wounded. “Real harsh…”

Meanwhile, Michael wasn’t having much luck with dating. There was a pretty blonde girl at the house one day that Michael thought was okay looking, but he spoke to her only to find out she was one of Patrick’s many… well, ‘visitors’. He sighed and walked away. How Patrick did it, he’d never know. Michael just didn’t feel any great attraction or attachment to these women.

He kept comparing them to someone else.

Patrick was naturally smart, in fact, he was downright intelligent. But it never showed, because he used his smarts for evil and manipulation. He didn’t have to try with his grades, all his professors were female. He just smooth talked his way into an A+ everytime. He could have easily done it the proper way, but it was so much more satisfying knowing that he had enough power to influence his way to straight A’s.

Elena, knowing his fondness for red heads, set Michael up with a girl from her class. They had plenty in common and she wasn’t awful looking, but Michael just didn’t feel that spark. She had red hair, sure, but she wasn’t, well. And it just wasn’t the same.

The date went well, but afterwards, Michael felt nothing.

Meanwhile, Elena had given a lot of thought about what Patrick had said. It was silly to mess around with Shang Yu in an effort to ignore her problems. She was glad when Fou-Lu happened to be in the hot tub. She joined him and decided they needed to talk about their situation.

Fou-Lu clearly wanted Elena back and while Elena was undecided, she couldn’t deny they had a solid history.

Unfortunately, they didn’t get much of a chance to talk. Add together a hot tub, bathing suits, and two young adults and well, you don’t usually get a heartfelt conversation…

Patrick, meanwhile, was doing some ‘conversing’ of his own with quite as few of the available co-eds. They were at the last of their classes and ready to graduate, so he wanted to score with as many chicks as he could before he left. It was a personal goal he set for himself. He wouldn’t have enough time once he was signed to an agency and working on his acting skills.

Not that he hadn’t been improving those with every line and charm he’d done in the past four years.


Note from Mao: This one is all over the place, sorry. I’ve played it intermittently for a week. Anyway, they’re graduated, yay. Too bad I can’t install AL yet. Anyway, if you don’t believe me, Michael really does suck at dating. He’s nice, just shy. But that doesn’t stop him from making girls cry. Note his total disinterest in her obvious distress. Cold, Michael, cold!


  1. *Points and laughs at Michael* That last picture is too funny…poor Michael. Some sims are just kind of socially inept.
    Hmm, not so impressed with either Elena or Fou-Lu at the moment. Michael’s comment that Fou-Lu had some growing up to do, while harsh, was true. But I think the same could be said for Elena, too. Oh, hot tubs…those silly, hormone-driven college kids. (Says the college sophomore… :lol: )

    Hahaha, yeah, behold! The power of hot tubs. ;) Michael cracks me up. It’s like he knew he was going to get Sade and now I am trying to stick him with ugly and uninteresting dormies/townies.

  2. xD oooh….Pat. I do love you but really, one Shang is enough! Though Shang in purple might taste good…Mm. But poor Michael. He needs some love…maybe we should get him a nice kitten or something? Mmm. So Fou and Elena are back together? I’m not sure if it is a good thing or bad thing. Old problems always seem to resurface at the worst times.

    Patrick cracks me up! He’s not like Shang, he’s a jerk, Shang is just… amorous. Elena and Fou-Lu aren’t back together, more like friends with benefits for the time being.

  3. LOL @ are you wearing pants? :)

    Poor Michael being stuck on his second cousin, lol! Sade is gorgeous, I’ll give him that. I just don’t know what to think about that situation. Technically, though a little icky, second cousins are are perfectly legal to be married, lol! So, you have that. :)

    *sigh* Elena and Fou-Lu… at least they’re seeking comfort in each other again…

    Patrick cracks me up, he’s such a cad! And Michael and Sade are definitely not cooperating. The buggers…

  4. Poor Michael. I feel for him. Dating is just not working out. Maybe he’s trying to spite you for not getting Sade? Patrick makes me laugh; I have something of a soft spot for jerks. And Romance sims. I have a jerk myself (though he’s Knowledge) and I could see those two getting along well.

    Haha, probably. But he’s too old for her and she’s too young for him! He’s graduated Uni and she’ll just be starting this coming round! Patrick amuses me greatly, I enjoy him a lot.

  5. That last pciture made me think of he I AM INDIFFERENT TO YOUR SUFFERING lolcat, it made me laugh so hard.

    So are Elena and Fou-Lu ending up together or not? And where will they live, is Fou-Lu the heir for the Yu house? Gah, I need to pay more attention.

    LOL! That cracks me up. Zhou is the heir, that’s why he and River moved in there with Tsung and Lilith. :P

  6. It’s official the sims are rebelling against their creator! Michael absolutely demands the return of his intended-at-one-point-and-entirely-way-too-related Sade, and he will plow through as many useless dates/girls to get her!

    Hahahaha, technically, second cousins can marry, but yeah. Crazy. And I keep forcing him to date. ;)

  7. Just got myself caught up on your entries from this summer! lol, Michael is trying to make this finding a mate thing as hard on you as he possibly can. ;) He just isn’t going to settle for anyone else. And I can’t blame him, Sade is one of my favorite Sims in Boreal Springs. I loved that post written from her point of view. She cracks me up! :)

    Shana, hi there! It’s so good to see your name around again. :D I like Sade, too. She’s a handful, but a fun one!

  8. Man, Mao! I’ve been hanging around reading about this challenge, and I must say you are so talented with this! I admire you, for sure! Plus, these families are so entertaining! I may be inspired to start my own Prosperity Challenge! :)

    Oh, and can you do me a favor? Can you tell me how you get your pregnant sims to wear casual clothing? That is such a neat thing to see!

    There’s the wear any clothing pregnancy hack, I think it’s on MTS2, but I just use insim’s wardrobe adjuster. Which takes more effort, true, but I’m a control freak, what can I say? Thanks so much, I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

  9. Isn’t Elena Patrick’s aunt (or half-aunt)?

    *head explodes from convoluted family tree*

    You’re right, as evidenced here.
    Just goes to show I am not feeling good enough to do my research, blegh! Thanks for the heads up.

  10. “are you wearing pants?” rofl

    Patrick’s the next Shang in training! I’m glad to see Fou-lu and Elena smooching again, Fou seems so set on her like Michael is with Sade but who can blame him, she’s gorgeous!

    I love his expression in the last picture, like “what do you expect me to do?” lol

    Hehe, that picture of Michael was too funny not to include!
