The boys arrive back from their final exams, which everyone passes. David and Ripp now get the opportunity to change aspiration, but they only get new turn-ons and turn-offs (I don’t like to change the aspirations of premades for some reason).
The newly graduated Johnny gets a free makeover and is then sent back to Strangetown and his old home. :)
Ripp gets along great with most women, but the cow mascot is an exception…
Poor Ripp takes the cow mascot’s insults personal and is way too nice to bite back. :(
The days before the final exams are mostly dedicated to studies. Mostly that is - Ripp needs a lot of cookies, chips and pizza to maintain his concentration. He appears to have a fast metabolism though, and remains quite fit! ;)
David throws a toga party, and invites Matthew, Ophelia, Laura, his fiancee Jessie and his little brother Tommy.
Ripp tries his best to make sure Tommy doesn’t feel too left out. Ripp has found that WooHoo talk almost always makes for a good conversation, and Tommy doesn’t appear to be an exception.
David has not seen his little brother since he was a child, so he makes sure to give him a lot of attention even though Jessie is a strong distraction.
The party ends as a roof raiser! :)
Ripp might have many relationships, but he has actually only woohoo’d one sim. This is of course something he intends to change ASAP! Laura and Chloe are the first “victims”. :D
The boys return home from their final exams. Both Johnny and Ripp get on Dean’s List. Johnny quickly starts studying - he only has one semester left now, while Ripp decides to spend the rest of the night chilling.
Despite the fact that he aspires popularity, David also likes to be alone and to write in his diary. Back in the dorms, he learned that privacy is not all that easy to have in college, but in the fraternity it’s close to impossible!
Ripp invites a cute dormie girl over, who he hopes he’ll manage to charm. The Cow Mascot and the Streaker do their best to distract, but the dormie finds Ripp irresistible enough to mostly ignore the others! :D
Ripp is definitely one of Johnny’s best friends, but sometimes Ripp’s laziness, childishness, sloppiness and lack of focus annoys Johnny quite a bit. Most of the time Johnny does really enjoy Ripp’s cheerful company though. David is sometimes a bit left out, but doesn’t seem to mind very much. He knows Johnny and Ripp are childhood friends and always expected them to be close.
Like expected, David Ottomas and Ripp Grunt joined the fraternity. Joining a greek house used to be some special, but it’s currently something all students from Strangetown have to do in order to keep the greek houses alive. Fortunately both David and Ripp are completely content with the situation - David wants a bunch of friends, while Ripp wants a bunch of lovers. Being in a fraternity could obviously help to satisfy those wants. :)
Frances’ first day at work quickly becomes a true nightmare - due to a small mistake ge gets fired! Mickey on the other hand, who doesn’t care about work nearly as much as Frances, returns home with his third promotion and with Sanjay Ramaswami as company.
Frances feels extremely bitter - so much that he decides to take a temporarily job as a Bookie in the criminal career track. It’s not like he has any intentions of working as a criminal for very long, but maybe this job can offer him an opportunity to take revenge on those who decided to fire him?
Mickey also gets a new job - obviously not due to poor performance at work, but because he would much rather work in the Slacker career track! :D
Back home, the newlyweds continue in the same romantic spirit for quite a while, before they start preparing themselves for the next day. :-)
(Mickey’s promotions made them able to afford an easel, which Frances is quick to use!)
Mickey eventually rolled the want to get married to Frances without also fearing it, so I decided to act quickly! :D
(Mickey took Frances’ name)
Mickey & Frances celebrate their moving in by going out on a date at Midnight Flows in Downtown! :)
Although the two young men enjoyed it very much, I discovered how weird and dark the lighting is on that lot - the fact that these pictures don’t appear all black is because I photoshopped them a lot! :p
Frances and Mickey head straight to the bedroom for some WooHoo! :D
Mickey finds himself a job in the Music career track and Frances finds one in the Law career. Since Frances will start his new job first tomorrow, he decides to start writing a novel to kill some time (and hopefully later sell it for a decent amount of money).
Mickey returns home with a promotion, but goes straight back to work since they really need more money. Despite being quite exhausted, he does well enough to earn a second promotion!
Frances Worthington and Mickey Dosser were able to buy this little house right after graduation. Not much furnitures could be afforded, but it’s still more “luxurious” than what most of the other LFT students were able to get! :)
