Year 97 - Helsinge Nation
This year's update starts at the Greek House. There lives at the moment:
Jesper Burlin, Philosophy Junior (Natalie’s brother), Pleasure
Bertil Mattsson, No major, Sophomore (Tommy’s nephew), Family
Tommy Ottomas, Economics Sophomore (Bertil’s uncle), Fortune
Alexander Johansson, Art Junior, Pleasure
Natalie Burlin, Mathematics Sophomore (Jesper’s sister), Fortune
Svea Rodiek, Physics Sophomore, Knowledge
As soon as the lot loads, things are happening. The unwanted baby Berit Carlsson graduated last round but is invited back to attend a party at the GH. The unwanted ex townie Tommy Ottomas wants her badly and kisses her.
Alexander is a very naughty Pleasure sim and seduces his mother’s cousin Stina, Family sim, married with twin toddlers at home. She practically raised him, no less!
After the party we go back to skilling. Svea maxes her body skill and Tommy works on Logic
Term papers are to be written
And more skills to be trained
Another party is to be had, including cow fight. The girls on the left, Helena and Berit, are both claimed by boys in this house. Helena will marry Jesper and Berit is dating Tommy as we saw earlier
Friendships are formed
And true hobbies are discovered
Since Bertil is a Family sim, he never had any desire for a certain major, and now when he finishes his sophomore year SCL, he is automatically enrolled in Philosophy
Year 97 – The Dorms
Stina Benett, Family sim, arrives to the dorms together with her father Max. He had a great time here at Uni but doesn’t seem to approve of his daughter’s choice of outfit. We don’t either, so we’ll fix that as soon as possible
Stina wishes for her friend Gert to come to Uni, and since they are BFFs and he’s a townie, he’s allowed to come
There’s something wrong with him though – he has no aspiration, even though his aspiration level would imply he’s a romancer
It doesn’t take long before they are in love, despite one bolt. Typical Family/Romance connection. J68 is not entirely happy with this development, but we’ll see where we end up
Stina tries to get a membership in the GH, and finds, to J68 relief, that Bertil Mattsson is only one bolt despite him being a Family sim too. He’s promised to Svea, so that’s all good
As usual, the first try-out is unsuccessful, but it’s a good thing to have a bowling alley at the dorms, it keeps the GH members from disappearing during try-out
The second try is more successful. And we still see traces that Rut Mattsson grew up in this dorm
Gert does a couple of tries too, before he is accepted in Helsinge Nation
Stina and Gert celebrates with a first kiss
Then they move out of the dorms. Stina moves to the GH, and Gert moves to another dorm.
Year 98 – Helsinge Nation
Back to Helsinge Nation. The same kids live here still, except that Stina moved in with an undecided major
To avoid procrastination, j68 puts everybody down to write their term papers as soon as possible after they fill the required skills
They are also allowed to pursue their hobbies, which results in a plaque in Arts&Crafts for Stina, maxed Creativity for Bertil and a bronze badge in gardening for Svea.
The love story between the unwanted sims continues, and by the end of the year they are engaged. At least, now we know what to do with Tommy.
The engaegement makes them both happy, but the stinky and annoying cow mascot nearly ruins the moment
Alexander dates Svea’s sister Saga, and she wishes for little else than to be with him. He’s not really that much into her, but he’ll have to comply, since his house will be inherited by his second cousins, the twins of Stina (who he seduced earlier this round)
He doesn’t have any problems with spending some time in the hottub with Saga too, though
Bertil has problems with the cheer leader Linn. They really hate each other
But he sure loves his girlfriend Svea.
Svea loves skilling too and maxes her Logic skill with the help of Natalie, who has been pretty invisible this round.
And when Alexander isn’t busy seducing women in the hottub he plays the guitar, and he eventually earns a plaque in Music&Dance
Then – graduation. Jesper graduates SCL in Philosophy – 1p, while Alexander graduates MCL in Art.
Jesper chooses to take his graduation picture with Alexander, instead of his girlfriend Helena Markövertag. Well, well, he’ll spend the rest of his life with her.
As soon as Jesper’s party is over, Alexander’s start. He looks very colourless without his mohawk
Alexander does what is expected of him and is happy that Saga is happy to be engaged to him
At the end of ’98 the following students live at Helsinge Nation:
Bertil Mattsson, SCL Philosophy Senior
Natalie Burlin, Mathematics Senior
Stina Benett, MCL Philosophy Junior
Svea Rodiek, SCL Physics Senior
Tommy Ottomas, MCL Economics Senior
Year 98 – The Dorms
Year 98, Alva Myhr, Popularity, comes to the dorms to start her higher education.
Her first wish is that Glen Nyman, Gert’s brother, would come to Uni. And with the same logic that brought his brother here, Glen is allowed to come too.
Glen is a boring sim, who we don’t even remember what aspiration he has. Maybe Fortune
The sims wishes, combined with j68 wish to have population control, but still to stick to the rules of the challenge, has resulted in the fact that Alva now shares her dorm with both the Nyman brothers
First try-out to the GH is unsuccessful, but the second is better
Glen doesn’t succeed.
But he DOES succeed in getting Alva to fall in love with him, despite only one bolt. J68 is equally annoyed as when Gert seduced Stina
The year in the dorms is extremely boring, but Alva at least uses it to do good things – for example cleaning autonomously. Good girl!
Gert, who lives here, too, booty calls Stina Benett and they do naughty things. When he finishes his sophomore year he is rolled Fortune (I think), so now he’s got an aspiration after all!
At the end of the year 98, the dorm ”family” splits up. Alva moves to the GH, SCL with no major, and the Nyman brothers will move on to the next dorm and spend a year with the Mattsmyra kids coming in year 99.
