15: Ryder – ‘Angel’

Jessica Ryder (Young Adult), Rebecca Jefferson (Young Adult)

Rebecca always made sure to care for Jessica’s squirrel. It was one of the few things she had remaining of her father. The squirrel was getting old, but Rebecca did her best to keep it in good health. She was home all day, so it was the least she could do.

15: Steel/Taylor – ‘Grand Theft Autumn’

Emma Steel (Young Adult), Skip Taylor (Young Adult), Amy Steel (Baby)

Dominic Cosaro spent a lot of time over at Emma’s apartment. He was babysitting his first grandchild, Emma. Of course, ‘babysitting’ a tiny infant mostly entailed him playing computer games while she napped quietly in her nursery. Emma and Skip did all the heavy lifting, which was just as well. Dominic had never been terribly skilled with babies.

15: Novak – ‘Hurricane’

Andrew Novak (Young Adult), Rena Eubanks (Young Adult) Natalia Novak (Young Adult)

Natalia had been adamant about Rena needing one last night of freedom before marrying her brother. They weren’t doing a big wedding or anything, but Natalia claimed it was a ‘rite of passage’. Andrew rolled his eyes and promised to be ‘missing’ for a night while Rena began to eagerly anticipate what awaited her. She was a big of a ‘closeted’ Party Animal.

It turned out to be an absolute blast.

15: Cosaro – ‘Best I Ever Had’

Dominic Cosaro (Elder)

Dominic Cosaro was planning his retirement. Of course, before then, he had one final season to play through. Their final and biggest game took them to the farthest reaches, out into the hot, humid deserts. Dominic was only the coach, but he was well-known and renowned, so he definitely wanted to ‘go out with a bang’, so to speak.

Luckily for him, his team won the game and his legacy was forever cemented in sports history, both as a VIP and a coach.

15: McMaster – ‘Even Flow’

Philip McMaster (Adult), Bianca McMaster (Adult), Dylan McMaster (Child), Molly McMaster (Child)

Dylan McMaster wasn’t the type to “buckle down” and do his homework. The only thing that kept his grades mediocre was the fact that his little sister, Molly, was more scholastically minded; she was always happy to prove how much more she knew by assisting him with his homework.

As a true slacker, Dylan was more than happy to feed her ego in an effort to keep their parents off his back.

15: University – ‘Messages’

Julian Cosaro (Term 1), Gavin Klein (Term 1), Michelle Valdes (Term 1)

Julian Cosaro had been excited to head off to University–a whole new world of academia to uncover. He was majoring n Science along with Gavin Klein. The two were mild acquaintances from high school, though they didn’t travel in the same ‘social circles.’ Julian was surprised to see Michelle Valdes in attendance, as well.

“Are you saying that someone like me couldn’t get into university?” Michelle was brazen and forthright. She was only joking, but Julian was too nervous to notice. She was a transplant, having moved to Aperture with only two years left in high school. Her family was a bit… odd.

“W-What? No,” he began nervously, “that’s not what I meant at all–”

She waved him off and continued to her room, “calm down, boy wonder. I was kidding.”

Round 15 ROS

I’ve realized that I need to add more events to my ROS, but I’m at a loss as to what. Any suggestions? Maybe we can crowd out the death ones… though, as sad as it makes me… I’m kind of excited. I’ve never had a cursed sim before!

14: McMaster 2 – ‘Champagne Supernova’

Catherine McMaster (Young Adult), Juliet McMaster (Young Adult), Sam Monte (Young Adult)

Things had gotten complicated quickly for Catherine McMaster. She was pregnant with a random man’s baby. It wasn’t exactly the way she’d intended to start a family. Worse yet, she was still living with her sister and her fiance. It wasn’t an ideal situation by any means.

Even so, Juliet was understanding… supportive, even! It was a shock, to say the least. The twins had always been relatively close, but no one could deny their differences. Juliet insisted that Catherine stay. She wouldn’t hear anything about her moving out. She was adamant about helping her with the impending baby.

14: Ashton – ‘She’s So High’

Lily Ashton (Young Adult), Mark McMaster (Young Adult)

Mark McMaster and Lily Ashton were finding that the act of actually getting married entailed a lot more work than either of them had realized. It had been a completely spontaneous thing, honestly. It was the right thing, but perhaps Mark could have gone about it in a better way and not in the wake of guilt brought on by his little affair.

Lily was clueless as to all of that, her brain far too occupied by all of the planning. She was in such a frenzy that she kept breaking everything. Mark teased her about it constantly. At least he was relatively handy.

14: Martel – ‘Save the World’

Luis Martel (Adult), Sacha Martel (Adult), Aidan Martel (Child), Sandra Martel (Child), Zoey Martel (Baby)

Sacha and Luis Martel were quite happy with their life. They’d had an unexpected child enter the picture, but that had only been a small speed bump along the way. Sacha was a noteworthy model and actress while Luis was on his way to running the DNA lab at the police department. Everything seemed to be going extremely well for the strangely matched couple.
