Anderson – Round 11: ‘Dirty Dealings, Pt. 3′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Mao @ 11:10 am

Thomas Anderson is currently the most powerful man in the area. This is made even more true by the fact that his daughter, Alyssa, is mayor. Of course, Thomas’ lover, Jun Yu, can’t seem to keep her nose out of other people’s business and his son-in-law Ryu is on the task force made specifically to bring his operation down. He’s hoping that Katarina will be strong enough to be heir.


A tense dinner

Dinners were tense affairs at the Anderson house. Ryu and Jun kept quiet while Thomas went on about politics, coaching Alyssa for her next speech or appearance. She would usually nod and chew quietly, though it was obviously she wasn’t listening. Her vision would drift off and at times she’d even kick Ryu under the table, shooting him a look that said, “help, please?”

At this point, Ryu would make a comment and Thomas would turn his attention away from Alyssa long enough for her to escape.

Ryu and Jun argue

It wasn’t easy for Ryu to be in the same house as his mother. She had left him as a child to come live here in luxury. His father, Henry, and Janine had raised Ryu and for that, he was grateful. He had no time for Jun now and wasn’t about to act like the past had never happened, which he let her know explicitly. Jun was startled, to say the least, when he attacked her after she made an off-hand comment about what a puppet Alyssa was.

There would be no nice resolution to this unfortunate situation, that much was sure.

Alyssa is pregnant

Alyssa had been feeling a little under the weather lately. She was suspicious as to her condition’s reasoning and phoned the doctor. Sure enough, she was pregnant again. It was very surprising, given how little time she had actually spent with her husband the past few months.

While she was happy, she knew that her father would have something to say about it.

Thomas talks to Alyssa

Sure enough, Thomas approached her not long after she arrived home. She was nearly three months along and not quite showing, but he still knew. It was Thomas’ way to know everything that happened, especially under his own roof.

“You’re pregnant again, aren’t you?”

She sighed, “yes, daddy, but I’m happy–”

“Excellent,” Thomas said with a sly grin. “This will be very good for your approval rating–mother of three and mayor! They won’t be able to deny your dedication–”

“Daddy!” Alyssa snapped, but quickly quieted her voice. “I’m sorry… but my children aren’t political stepping stones. Just stop, okay? I have to go lie down…”


Katarina is a child

Meanwhile, Katarina’s birthday had come and gone and she was now a beautiful little girl capable of individual thought. Her personality wasn’t quite definable–she enjoyed a vast array of things. She seemed particularly enthralled with Science, but the active side of her had a penchant for Sports activities. Her favorite thing to do was to watch movies with her father. He was a literary buff and while she wasn’t nearly on his level, she idolized him enough to want to emulate him.That’s right, Thomas had lost Katarina. She loved her family, but it was obvious who she seemed to trail after the most–Ryu. Anytime he was home, she was usually with him. The fact that Alyssa was pregnant made Thomas not feel the loss. There would be others…

Ryu talks to Alyssa about the baby

Ryu was also quite pleased by the news. He was Family-oriented, after all. All his work towards ridding the town of its criminal leanings was for the benefit of family welfare. Unfortunately, it took him away from his own, something he realized quite quickly after Katarina’s birthday and her insistence on following him everywhere.

He had nearly forgotten that Alyssa was still her father’s little puppet and felt badly. He would need to pay more attention and be a bit better at allocating himself in different areas of his life.


  1. aww, Nevio is just tooo cute. I love his hairstyle. I can’t stand Thomas, I can’t wait for him to kick the can. And I think the only person that would miss him somewhat would be Alyssa, & maybe Janine a little.

    Mao edit: Haha, the twins are adorable. I can’t wait to see who they take after. Thomas is only halfway through elderhood. ;)

  2. Oh, holy crap! you had me going for a little i thought Katy was alive! SHed mess up everything! Thomas is so racist, going against Roman because he looks Saunders.
    but, i’m confused, how did you not save the wish? If you had saved it, would Katy still be alive. And how did you get the lamp?

    Mao edit: Hahaha, Thomas isn’t ‘racist’… it’s not the skin color, it’s the fact he has such prominent Saunders in him. Henry is his hated enemy, after all. ;) I just saved before I had Ryu mess with the lamp, and then exited without saving. NO clue about the lamp! I just looked down and it was there…

  3. Thomas is gonna live forever and we all know it D: He’s just that evil. But anyways…the boys look sooooo cuuuuuute. <3 I just hope Thomas doesn’t convert them to the dark side. They’re too cute for that.

    Mao edit: Hahaha! So very, very true. I’ll be surprised when Thomas dies! He’ll leave a huge hole to fill. ;)

  4. I actually admire Thomas for his ability to… not admire, I’m not some crazy person, but like, his ability to control an entire neighborhood, I feel like he has a hand in EVERYTHING, and its just so cool. He will be missed when he goes. The twins are adorable Mao! :D

    Mao edit: See, that’s exactly what I mean! Without Thomas… the neighborhood will be a loss. ;)

  5. Well, Gordon’s certainly grown up a bit. He’s looking very… cool in that picture. Alyssa is a lot more likable now than when she was a manipulative uni student, although she also seems less happy.

    Mao edit: Poor Alyssa is having a rough patch. Gordon is going to make quite the criminal…

  6. That dream fitted (lol) in so well! The Genie looks awesome as well!

    Mao edit: Haha, I’m glad!

  7. Wow! For a second I thought Katy was alive again. That really would mess things up! Nevio and Roman are so cute!

    Mao edit: Haha, yes, yes it would. Thus why I didn’t save… phew.

  8. Very cool! I have yet to see a genie lamp in my game. My game is always eons behind everyone else! I still haven’t had vampires or werewolves!

    Mao edit: Aww! I’ve had a few werewolves in my boomtown, but my vampire experience is limited to the end of my first legacy and my black widow.

  9. Thomas really is a manipulative one. Ryu could loose more than he bargained for if he goes head to head with him.
    By the way, Gordon looks like a hottie;-)

    Mao edit: Ryu knows how Thomas is, but he won’t back down. Gordon turned out quite interesting… he looks more like a sim I made in CAS than a naturally born sim!

  10. HAHA very cool … love the dream!

    Mao edit: Thanks!

  11. Those toddlers are really cute. I do hope that Ryu will be able to help Alyssa get away from her father’s influence.

    Mao edit: Here’s hoping, but I doubt it!

  12. Oh man. Again with the wonderful updates {^_^}
    I totally despise Thomas and hopes he kicks the can soon. I am sooooo in love with Gordon. He would be such a dreamy criminal and one I’m sure we all could fall for, evil or not.
    OMG Mandie I never had werewolves or vampires either. lol I need to catch up already. I never even had an alien abduction! {O_O} I am way behind. The only thing I had was a plantsim but I turned him back because he’s in my rkc and it wouldn’t do lol.

    Mao edit: Haha, I don’t care much for plantsims myself. I dunno… it just seems too easy? Maybe they just don’t fit my play style. No alien abduction? Yikes! Free Time makes it easier if you have a Knowledge sim.

  13. Excellent dream sequence! Thomas is using his daughter’s pregnancy to further his own schemes…disgusting, but I do love to hate him!

    Ryu could really use some help living in this house

    Mao edit: Thanks! Thomas is quite the villain. ;)
