Yu – Round 26: ‘Ordinary’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , — Mao @ 2:17 pm

Zhou and River Yu are elders now while their son, Fujin, is just really starting his life as a teenager.

Fujin, despite his penchant for the nerdy and obscure, is amazingly good with people.  He likely inherited it from somewhere down the line.  Some would argue that Zhou had his own ‘brand’ of charm, but Fujin shared very little with his father.  The same could be said about his mother.  He was an oddball, a nerdy but social creature who thrived of the laughter of others and poking fun at his own geekery.

He was a merry spirit indeed.

Unfortunately, even good humor wouldn’t stop the Grim Reaper from coming to collect.  Chairman Mao’s time was up, she’d lived a long and fruitful cat life.  She passed to the chorus of yowling cats and the frantic sobbing of her owners.

In an effort to cheer everyone up, they adopted a new cat named Murphy.  She and Apollo got on quite well and now the family was anticipating kittens.  River was especially attentive of the expecting cat.

Fujin got a visit from his older friend, Rosa Anderson, who was quite upset about her older sister’s recent homecoming.  Rosa wasn’t known for her terribly understanding nature.

“It’s such a mess!  Her moping and just annoying attitude in general has caused me to break out… that’s just not fair!”

Fujin tried to be the voice of reason, “shouldn’t you cut her some slack?  I mean, given what happened–”

“Nothing happened!” She roared, her frustration mounting.  “That’s just it.  My sister is an indecisive idiot.  Everyone says I’m a flake, but Lydia takes that cake and leaves none for me.  It just makes me so mad!”

Fujin eventually managed to calm Rosa down enough so she could vent her rage on video games.  After mashing buttons and screaming at the pixels on the screen, Rosa took a calming breath and sat back, tossing the controller aside.

“Feel better?”

“Yeah, kinda,” she mumbled.  “I just wish she’d stop making her problems everyone else’s.”

“If nothing happened then I’m sure it’ll fix itself soon enough and she’ll be out of your hair.”

She rolled her eyes, “she’d better.  That’s my house.  She’s not pulling what Kit did to Jennifer and taking over!  Dad promised me the house, it’s mine!

Fujin laughed, “boy am I glad I don’t have any siblings…”

Murphy had two kittens, Dresden and Molly.  It had been quite some time since there had been kittens in the house and it began to dawn on River and Zhou that maybe their house was in need of a little rennovation…


Note from Mao: Nothing exciting here, just the same old, same old.  I was sad to see Chairman Mao go!  Here’s hoping Murphy and Apollo make cute babies.  Zhou kept bringing home red heads (he brought three, excluding Rosa)… yet his turn on is blonde.  I think he’s trying to tell me something?  LOL!


  1. Whoa, what’s up with Rosa! I need to go back and reread!

  2. She’s upset because Lydia returned home after the issue at University with Gregory and Emma. ;)

  3. Fuuuujin. *rubs him against her bosom* You are already healing the wounds Tsung’s death left.

    Those redheads are just too irresistable for silly things as predetermined turn ons.

  4. LOL! Fujin is still evading me, I’m not sure what to make of him yet… except that he has a penchant for red heads, apparently.

  5. I’ve noticed that too. Some sims claim to like blondes but really like redheads. ;) And what causes sims to break out? Is it stress? Low aspertations? I can never figure that out. Some teens get break out and others stay clean and clear!

  6. I have no idea. I’ve heard rumors that it’s progressively low hygiene, but it’s hard to say.

  7. I’m just getting started and, as usual, I start with the ‘end’ and go backwards.

    I’ve never had a character break out. Do they actually do that?

    Your usual witty and acerbic dialogue and beautiful, perfectly set and framed shots!

  8. Haha, hey Beth! Yeah, teens can break out… but it’s hard to figure out the how/why.

  9. :( RIP Chairman Mao! It seems like she had been around forever. Rosa’s rant was TDF, hopefully she can help Lydia see that nothing happened between Emma and Gregory. Is there any intended mate for Fujin yet?

  10. Chairman Mao was an awesome cat! ;) Rosa is definitely bent out of shape because Lydia is back.

    No mate for Fujin… I’m hoping he can find someone. Probably a red head, given his recent actions, lol.

  11. They’re always trying to tell you something. Remember what happened the last time you didn’t listen to them *coughSadecough*. I totally blanked that River and Zhou were elders! So I probably got my shock all over again.
    In a way I don’t blame Rosa, but there is that whole house issue. I have to feel for Lydia though. I do hope that issue works out, then everyone will be a little bit happier.

  12. Haha, they sure are! Apparently I don’t know them as well as I should. Yeah, they are elders. ;) Rosa is a bit brash, but she means well.

  13. I refuse to think of Zhou as an elder. Refuse. :(

  14. Awww!

  15. Weirdness! I have some Sims turned on by blondes that have a thing for redheads too!

    I’m starting to see a little of River in Fujin, even though he’s still so similar to his dad.

  16. Fujin is almost all River in looks, which is disappointing. Maybe he’ll look more Yu as a Young Adult.
