Welcome Back to Familiar Faces it's time for
Chapter Six: Gooey Greek House Goodness
We left off with all three of the third generation of Familiar kids getting ready to start their UNI
experience. As a reminder, in case you need one or even if you don't, we'll reintroduce the gang.
Betty Familiar romance heiress of the family hopped outta the taxi ready to start wooing and
hooing her way across campus. If she can just find a man that showers on a regular basis she'll
Middle child Barbie just wants to fall in love, get engaged and settle down to have babies. You
could say Barbie's a bit desperate in her search for a spouse.
And the baby of the family, serious Bob is putting a whole new spin on seeking pleasure. Not for
Bob are the wants to date or take bubble baths. Bob, well he much prefers curling up with a
The kids will spend their first semester in the dorms, they need to prove themselves worthy of
Greek membership to family friend, and Greek house placeholder, Charles. It won't take much
to get them in, their father Abe had introduced them all to Charles while they were kids, and he's
thrilled that they are finally here.
They also need to make contact with the secret society members that live in the dorm. It
appears that Dominic is a bit bored by Bob's "why do burglars where stripes instead of plaid?"
"Why you should never walk by a legacy dorm at term paper time" By DJ Verse
Time flies and before we know it there's not one, not two, but three, three extremely outgoing
students on their way back from acing their finals in their jammies.
Charles and I had revamped the original Greek house in order to make room for this generation
but it just wasn't gonna work out. The 2x3 lot wouldamaybe worked for another generation or
two, but it would quickly become too full. Besides there was no room for the car Bob wants.
So they stuffed everything they could into their pockets and moved to a new slightly larger lot.
It's not that impressive at the moment, but it'll work until there's money for some improvements.
Once everything was distributed in the new digs, including Jack Falcon who survived the move,
it was time to get down to the real business of college. Partying, dating, hottubbing, bubble
blowing and woohoo!
"Why do I have to leave again? I like it here and that Betty is one hot babe!"
It's because Betty is one hot babe that you have to leave, sorry Charles but she's got an agenda
and a potentially jealous lover on the lot isn't in the cards. You can come back and visit anytime
"Awesome! I'll do that"
And he does, Charles is here almost daily over the next four years.
Once Charles moves out it's time to invite over some new pledges. Al and Robin's three kids are
joining their cousins for the duration.
First up is Amelia Familiar.
Amelia's a mean and sloppy Sagittarius fortune sim. This is one girl you do not wanna tick off.
Cow mascots are putty in her hands, she can't be grossed out and poking her will only end with
the poker in tears. Fred's mean genes skipped a generation and landed smack dab on Amelia
Next up is Aaron Familiar.
Aaron's a happy go lucky popularity Capricorn, the only thing he's serious about is throwing
parties. Like all my college kids he'll be spoiled rotten and therefore get all the parties he wants.
Aaron and I best friends, he's told me so, and he almost always has a smile for me and for
Finally there's Amy Familiar
Amy's a nice and sloppy romancing Sagittarius. She's fully active and so nice that she never
complains about anything as long as it doesn't include cleaning. My alien eye glitch apparently
fixed itself before she was born and so she's the only one that exhibits them, but all of the girls
of this generation should have alien eyes.
Betty and I have come to an agreement. I won't force her to get married until she wants to.
Since she may never want to, the risky pregnancy odds will be increased for this generation and
all her romancing once she hits home will be done with proper heir ship producing partners (at
least until we have an heir). Since she's not too thrilled about the baby producing part of the
deal she wants to get as much of her lifetime want done while she's at UNI as she can. To that
end she'll be wishing for love as often as we think it's safe for her to do so.
Once a love pops out of the well she hits em up for a date which generally includes canoodling
in the hot tub.
If they are lucky she remembers to send them home after the date, if not they generally end up
soaking in the tub all night, and laughed at by the cow until the firetruck arrives. They should put
a sign on the lot:
*Warning possessed hot tub of death on premises proceed to soak at your own risk*
Winter comes around and the Greek kids take a break from their studies to play. Barbie does
And Amelia builds me my first evil snowman.
The good snowmen form an army in hopes of taking down the evil one. A penguin is called in
and thankfully begins peace talks before any blood is shed.
The kids throw a 'we survived the snowman uprising' party, and from then winter proceeds
normally. Or at least as normally as it can at a Greek house. It's always interesting to see who's
gonna show up on the guest list.
It could be a streaker
Or a long lost relative to heart fart over.
Barbie that's your great grandfather! I told you she was desperate.
And when the more primitive urges take over the guest list can include all types of animals as
well. We've got the cows, of course
Family pets from back home
And even a penguin that's lost his way.
No matter who's on the guest list though, it always results in a good memory.
That's not to say that the Familiar's are slackers when it comes to their studies. They always
make the grade, they have to if they wanna throw their traditional 'woot we aced our finals!' party
for the semester.
"Wishing for WooHoo: a definitive study" By Betty Familiar
Junior year rolled around and with it a re roll of the dice for poor confused Bob. Bob's now
knowledge with a lifetime want to reach the top of the journalism career. I didn't even have to
cheat on the roll, the dice knew what he wanted as much as I did this time. Bob was thrilled with
his new calling, he cheered his re roll.
Betty continued to wish for love.
"Dang-it, I did Gunther at a party last week I don't need him now!"
Them's the breaks kid, toss him to your cousin she hasn't had him yet and they've got three very
Barbie kept trying to pin down a future husband. Mitch would work much better than most of the
others on her list, but I think she's leaning towards big earred Martin Rueban instead.
Ever had one of those sims that just can't behave themselves?
When that happens we just call in the terminator, she'll make him see the light.
"Did you just water balloon my cousin? That was not a smart idea"
"I was just having some fun lady, not my fault the wuss couldn't handle a joke!"
"A joke, you think that water balloon was funny huh? Well here, I think this is funny *poke* what
do you think of that *poke* pretty fricking hilarious isn't it?"
"Who's the wuss now Aldric?"
Aaron started to think that the parties were getting a bit predictable, he wanted to spice things
up and asked for some NPC's to be added to the mix.
So pretty soon we had man maids playing toss on the yard
Nanny's blowing bubbles with the cows
*I'm not sure which surprises me least, that the nanny is a bubble addict or that she and the cow
get along so well?*
Headmaster's in the hot tub
And firefighters on the payroll
Amy's a green type of girl, whether it be her skin, her pj's or her stink fumes, it's all about the
"You know that's one of the things I like about having NPC's for friends, they aren't nearly as
judgmental as you are."
"They don't blink when you sponge bathe in front of them"
"And when the hot tub of death attacks they don't panic like everyone else"
That's cause firefighters are immune to fire, they don't randomly burn up like others do. And yes
it's the purple trunked non panicked firefighter that should be on fire that caused the excitement
this time. He had the fire out by the time the truck responded.
Fires weren't the only thing to cause worry and panic at the Greek house.
It's okay though she lived
"Hey Gunther, call me sometime we should woohoo again!"
It was a normal night at the Greek house, senior year was rolling to a close and the party theme
was 'Come share spoiled pizza with us!'
It was Barbie's turn to ensure the party was a roof raiser.
Ehh, I foresee scary things coming from this relationship, big earred, big nosed baby type
Then the party was over and the cousins were once again congratulating each other on the
Outside a few stragglers were still hanging out in the hot tub, a storm was rolling in.
And then, from outside, came the crash of thunder and lightning . . . and a scream
The possessed hot tub takes another prisoner.
Brittnay Upsnott, a sororityyy girl from Tri-Var over at Sim State, had caught the attention of
vengefulul lightning bolt!
Her tub partner Jimmy Phoenix, also from Sim State, was wailing. Inside everyone in house
broke away from what they were doing to sigh, and then run out to see what was happening.
Brittney was not yet a friend to anyone in the house. Aaron in his typical gracious, manner had
seen her walking by the house earlier in the day and asked her to join the party. Because of that
greeting he had the highest relationship with her currently, a whole 7 daily points. It was enough
to attempt to plead for her life.
The rest of the family walked off to do other things.
Grim, that sneaky bastage won the game and laughed heartily as a second lightning bolt struck
"Two for the price of One? How marvelous" Grim said as he picked up the phone to call for a
At the sound of his laugh the family comes running yet again
As everyone wails at the injustice, Betty begs Grim for another chance.
But even with a 97/98 relationship Grim wins again!
"He cheated, he had to of. I don't know how, but I know he did."
*At this point I'm sitting at my computer in shock furiously clicking off the actions of other family
members who are attempting to hop into the tub of death, as Grim makes his second clean up
Fear not gentle reader all will be well. Aaron is willing to make the sacrifice for the good of all.
"Sacrifice? What sacrifice? I don't think we agreed to any sacrifices."
Okay, okay bad wording there. It's really no sacrifice to you, in fact you'll get a thrill outta it. I've
just been holding off on sealing a few friendships cause I didn't want the ball to start rolling.
"Did you poke me? I'm warning you lady, I've got a sister!"
"Tell me again how I'm gonna get a thrill outta this?"
"Whoa cool, there's at least 15 people here that I haven't met yet."
There's the thrill for ya, Aaron in his typical style gobbles the aspiration points for meeting new
people and immediately wants to throw a party so that they can meet all his friends as well.
After he's met everyone on the lot and has a full want box of friends to make along with his
throw a party want, Aaron takes care of the business he came here to do.
First comes Barbie, good as new, still rolling up the want to get engaged to Martin.
And in an act of pure charity he also summons Brittney back from the dead.
And as a reward he makes a new friend, yet another thrill for the night.
We clean the girls up then send Brittney back to the dormie pool, and 48 hours after her
frightening experience Barbie is back in the tub of death. And for once it's not with Martin.
From then until graduation its a rolling ball of nightly secret society abductions, pretty much why
I'd avoided it in the first place. Once one member of the family gets in they are added to the
friends in SS list for everyone else in the house.
With graduation looming and fertility right around the corner Betty was in a panic. She needed
eight more woohoo partners and she wasn't getting any younger.
"I can make you live forever, bleh!"
"But not now, the sun! I must flee!"
"Okay, but call me! We'll woohoo!"
In the end she called him.
But before she could get him to bed he mesmerized her with his powers.
"You turned her? What about me?!? I'm the knowledge sim here!"
Betty knew what she was gonna have to do, but first she'd woohoo.
"bleh! There's always room for woohoo, it's like jello."
"bleh! Time for the thrill of your life brother dearest!"
Betty turns Bob into a vampire cause well she loves her brother.
She then summoned the gypsy and bought a 10 pack of potions.
"Just in case, ya know Bob might go a little nuts at some point"
A flash a boom, one last bleh and a "ooh that tickled"
And Betty is back as good as new, and right back at the well.
Bob on the other hand was quickly stuffed in a coffin where he stayed.
Until his death defying run to his final final exam that afternoon.
"Okay, I'm desperate here Jonah, I've avoided you for three years cause you're one of Amy's
boy toys, but she's at finals now so what do you say we up our relationship really quick and then
hit the sheets?"
"What do you mean one of?"
Betty and Bob throw a joint graduation party that night. We didn't wanna risk Bob getting fried.
"We're so glad you're coming home Betty, the house has seemed kinda empty lately. Hey, isn't
that your cousin Amy being handcuffed over there? You kids these days and your role playing
Bob got a reluctant approval of his parents over his new lifestyle.
"I won't say we understand, but we won't judge you."
Soon after Bob spun into new trunks and then stalked back the home hood and a nice new
Betty took time to attempt some arson before spinning into her new undies.
"psst Aaron, did you hear? You know Betty? our cousin Betty? She burned some food! Isn't that
"I can still hear you Amelia, could you at least wait until I'm out of the house before you start the
"Wee I'm an only child at last!"
Only for twenty four hours Barbie, then you go back to the hood as well. Barbie was a bit behind
her sibs in graduation cause you know, the death thing and all.
"Hey sis long time no see"
"Has it really been twenty four hours? It seems shorter."
Barbie's graduation party was a real family affair she invited everyone including the dogs.
And Martin of course. She then spun into a really bad combination of clothing before heading to
her new dream house in the home hood.
Two days later it was time for the final blowout of the generation. A combined grad party for
Amelia, Aaron and Amy. Everyone was invited. Charles was moved back in to look after Jack
until the next generation was ready to join him.
"I just did a bad bad thing, didn't I?"
Well yeah, of all the people in the house you could of ventrillo farted you picked one of the
Forget about Llama vs Cow the fight of the decade was Vicund vs Cow. And Cow lost, Goo
And then it was time for the turnings, first up was Amy.
And finally the party king himself spins to adulthood while gaining points for yet another roof
raising event at the Greek house.
"Well Jack, it's just you and me again buddy. Maybe someday we'll get to graduate as well."
Maybe so Charles, who knows. We'll see what happens in future generations.
Until then, Thanks for reading and Happy Simming!
