Sims Saturday: Becoming Me
Ever wonder what the Sims will do left to their own devices? See the story of a young couple unfold right before your eyes.

Welcome to Sims Saturday, a Sims soap opera by VelvetDove.

Ya know how they say reality is sometimes stranger than fiction? Well my life is really really weird. When I started high school I figured things would start changing and be different for sure. But this is a little much. My older brother Spencer has been almost fanatical about my brothers and a sister and them being fairies. Well of course they have wings, they're exactly like our mother. I never felt like I wasn't a part of them, but Spencer really wanted to make that a point at all times. I never really cared. My parents treated me the same way they treated everyone else. I think Spencer really was jealous of us for having a mother and a father. His mother abandoned him when he was still a baby. I'm sure he blames my mother for his mother not being around. He gets so tunnel visioned he can't even see what's actually right in front of him. He went on a literal witch hunt for a while.

If it's not fairies, it's another random super natural being. Which I think is really funny. I saw him single out a woman in the park and "questioning" her. I'm sure it was all completely innocent, and it was just a coincidence that she just happened to be a witch.

What I think is super hilarious is that with all his anti-supernatural talk, he goes and brings home a werewolf and brings that mangy woman into the house. No, I'm not calling her that because she's a werewolf, she really is the worst kind of person. She'll just start sniffing people weirdly and is just rude. Jumping on the furniture, clawing up things. I don't understand why he would bring home a horrible woman like that.

He was all super happy about how his was going to have a proper family and be a role model for us. I think he just got upset because Toby had a baby girl with some girl he met. Which he was kind of happy about, until Toby found out the girl was actually married and her and her husband were going to raise the baby. Which completely sucked for Toby since he was excited to have a baby. It kind of broke his heart to hear that he wasn't going to be having the family he wanted. I'm sure there will be plenty of time for him to develop a relationship with his daughter, they named her Cory. Which is a completely weird name for a girl, but when you have no input or control over things, it just gets weird.

I went on a field trip for school and we toured the science facility in town. It was amazing all the work they were doing there. I knew right that day, that was the career I would choose. I looked at Charlie and I knew he was thinking the same thing. We tended to go down the same path, being twins and all.

Just like Hank and Ashley, but they tend to lean towards the arts side of things. I know Ashley wants to be a painter. She keeps saying it's in our blood. It was like it was a calling, I knew I was going to immediately get a job at that facility when I graduate. I was so glad that Grandpa Trayce invested in a science table for one of the great aunts or something. I don't know the whole story, it's just been in the back yard for longer than I've been alive. I sure am going to get good use of out it though. Charlie is more interested in the plant aspect of science. I haven't really narrowed down what I'm going to focus on. Spencer did teach me something though, that genetics are a fascinating thing. Sure, he used it as an excuse to complain that he had no talent of skill in anything. But it definitely is interesting that he got no talents at all. My siblings all gained fairy traits and I got our father's gift of magic. It's strange that my twin has the fairy traits from Mom and I get the magic traits from Dad. I definitely am leaning towards the genetics field.

It definitely was a crazy day when Ashley and Hank graduated high school. It was definitely emotional for sure. Its like you're a kid in high school one day and then like a switch that world ends and everything is different.

As expected, Hank went off to join a music career and Ashley claimed to be just finding her inspiration for the next painting. I'm not sure who's going to be willing to buy her paintings, but I suppose you have to start somewhere. I am super proud of them. I'm not really sure why you see your siblings up there getting their awards and you're overwhelmed by emotion. I was so proud of them. I mean, I know they're great people. All I could think was how Dad probably would of been so happy for them! It just made me want to cry to think about all the things he's going to miss. He was a good father. He would of been a great grandfather! I know he would of been super excited and happy for all the changes going on in the house.

We all got together and confronted Spencer. He didn't understand why we were so angry with his choice in wife. It was like he didn't know she was a werewolf or something. But like I said before, Spencer was never the most observant of the bunch. He got so angry he packed up his and Elizabeth's things and they moved out. Which was interesting, I didn't expect for him to act so extreme about it. He obviously wasn't very happy living with us. He hated living with my Mom, no matter what. I don't know how he was before I was born, but he definitely needed to get some separation. I mean its not like I'm not going to talk to him anymore, but it will sure be different without him in the house. I'm sure he will be happier away from us. I know I'm going to be happier. Yes I liked my brother, but I felt like I had to hide myself a lot, because I was never sure how he would react to my having magic. Now I'm going to practice it all over the place.
