Yu – Round 20: ‘Crushcrushcrush, End’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 4:46 pm

Tsung and Lilith Yu have been happily married for many years, now they welcome their eldest son Zhou and his love, River, into their home.

Zhou and River were married in an intimate ceremony held in their backyard near the pond and trees that Sun-Tzu had ordered many years before.  Family and friends were in attendance and the day was clear with not a cloud nor a even the slightest hint of rain.

A childhood crush and a troublesome courtship had ended in happy nupituals.

River was understandably nervous, she had never really seen herself as the “marrying type”, especially not with Zhou, but what they had was beyond denial.  Why should she deny happiness, even if it was a little odd?  Being around Tsung and Lilith had shown her that such odd couples truly can work.

They were oblivious to the dissension amongst the wedding guests.  In bringing together family and friends, they brought tension.  But they were too busy being newlyweds to pay attention.

Elena and Fou-Lu weren’t officially ‘back together’, but it was hard to say otherwise with the way they acted after the wedding.  Elena was living back home until she got onto her feet while Fou-Lu and the other men were looking into apartments that were being built in Aperture.

Zhou took the time to advise his brother to tread softly, so not to scare Elena away.  He knew his brother wasn’t the most reliable and steady of men, but he knew how much he loved Elena.  He just hoped Fou-Lu could pull his act together long enough to become a respectable adult.  Responsibility had never been something the younger sibling wore very well.

The newlyweds weren’t the only ones in love, Tsung and Lilith were still very much aware of one another.  They enjoyed their quiet years as elders and looked forward to the possibility of grandchildren.  Her advancing age hadn’t stopped Lilith from pursuing her paranormal interests and Tsung hadn’t yet retired, either.  He was in charge of the apartment and town house plans.

Lilith was pleased to have an apprentice to pass on all her knowledge to.  Isolde Anderson had come to her sheepish, but adamant and so Lilith took her in.  It would take awhile for Isolde to truly grasp the very nature of what she believed in, but Lilith was sure she would reach the same level as she, if not even higher.

She just hoped the girl was prepared for the ridicule and everything that came with being such an ‘odd’ character.


Note from Mao: Zhou and River are finally married, yay.  And Inteen needs to hurry up, I need Apartments for my recently graduated young adults!


  1. I hear you with Inteen! I’m patiently (or not so) waiting, as I can’t really play without it!

    River and Zhou’s wedding by the pond looked beautiful! :) Hopefully Zhou will decide to be faithful to her!

    Same here, The Sims 2 without InTeen is just… blegh. I need the random pregnancy! I like it when ‘Try for Baby’ isn’t an option! And I doubt Zhou will have any trouble being faithful.

  3. Mmm. I do love my Yu. Looking at Zhou talking to Fou-Lu, I am reminded of an image where Tsung attempted to talk to Shang..patterns are lovely, aren’t they? xD Yay, appretice! I knew Lilith would take to Isolde well. The two are just peas in a crazy, paranormal pod. Hopefully, Isolde can find her own lovable dork someday too. <3 Lilith and Tsung Forever!

    Haha, yes, I noticed that pattern, too! Those Yu do so like to follow patterns…

  5. the wedding was so pretty. Isolde training under Lillith should be interesting.

    Lilith is definitely happy to have an apprentice!

  6. Awww a Wedding by the lake? How beautiful! <3
    Weddings always bring couples together… such a romantic and fun occasion!

    Ruh-roh.. I have a feeling Isolde and Lillith will be good friends! Not that that’s a bad thing, Lillith looks pretty hip! ^.^

    Weddings give me hives, I’m always afraid drama is going to happen! LOL

  7. Yay! River and Zhou. I hope their marriage is as long as happy as Lilith and Tsung’s.

    Isolde has found her mentor! Will the student surpass the teacher?

    That’s a good question, Isolde has a lot of promise.

  8. The wedding was wonderful. Lilith and Isolde, coolness! Will there be witches soon in BS? :D

    There very well could be!

  9. Lol @ Lilith and Isolde. It’s like Star Wars. The apprentice will become more powerful! Fou-Lu has an interesting idea of formal wear o.O

    LOL! And Fou-Lu’s formal wear had me laughing, but it is ethnic!

  11. It seems to run way back down the Yu line. The older brothers (Roger, Tsung, Zhou) turn into responsible adults quickly, while the younger brothers (Sun-Tzu, Shang, Fou-Lu) need to run wild for a bit. I know including Sun-Tzu was a stretch, but he took a while to settle down with Eileen.
    Yay River and Zhou! River needs to hurry up and start incubating. If I’m correct, their child will be the culmination of all the original lines. Excitement!
    And finally Isolde and Lilith meet. I think Isolde is more than ready; she’s already been pegged as uncool among her age group. That’s ok, that’s what the cow plant is for. *evil grin*

    Haha, that’s very true! I guess personalities are hereditary. We’ll have to see what happens with River and Zhou’s kids! Maybe they will break tradition and actually have a girl. I hadn’t even thought about that, wow…

  12. Don’t know if you’ve heard or not but inTEE won’t be updated for AL. He lost all the stuff on his harddrive or something like that.

    Yeah, I saw and I mentioned it in a later post, actually. :)

  13. I’m so happy to get to this entry! River and Zhou are my favorite couple.

    It’s neat that Lilith now has an apprentice. :)

    Aww, glad you’re enjoying. :D
