Continuing where we left off: Epitwee Gorey, long lost distant cousin of the late Friedrich Gorey, was sullenly working her way through college.

Epitwee gets my seal of approval because she cleans things autonomously. That's awesome.

She also paints autonomously. This isn't a bad thing, as someone will have to do heir portraits someday.

This dormie (Elisabeth? Leslie?) swoons over Panda.

Epitwee: I'll just leave you two alone for a bit...

Alas, despite her haircut and pants, Panda is not a lesbian.

Epitwee studies with Leslie or Elisabeth. Still not sure which is which... I should have kept better notes.

As usual, the Phys. Ed. teacher busts into the house and forces people to exercise. Do they even *have* Phys. Ed. teachers in college?!

That dormie there, with the blond hair and blue eyes? His name is Cael Miura. I'm guessing he needs to talk about sumo all the time to remind everyone that he's Japanese, no really!

Hal calls Epitwee every day at least once. At first, I thought it was really sweet.

This blond haired and blue eyed fellow also had a Japanese surname, Nakajima or something. Um, what is the deal with all the blond Asians, game of mine?

All that calling pays off, and Epitwee mauls Hal on the street when he comes over.

Hal's pillow talk needs some work. Talking about college is just going to ruin the mood!

Or maybe not. Epitwee is half Knowledge Sim after all.

And as usual, the semi-shamed faces say it all. The deed is done!

Epitwee's world has apparently been sufficiently rocked, to the point where she proposes marriage to Hal!

He gleefully accepts, and can't get that shiny rock on his finger fast enough!

Awwwww, adorable post-engagement hugging!

The thrill of being engaged wears off quickly though...

Synchronized mealtime chatting! Clearly, they are meant to be together.

Epitwee: My eyes are up here, Hal.

Hal: :D

You stay classy, Hal.

Because I can't stand the decor, the common room gets made over, with Epitwee's money.

The other common room also gets Ikea'd.

Cael: Cellophane... Mister Cellophane... shoulda been my name...

Cael gets hit with the dorm glitch and goes all vague and see-through. He gets over it though.

Epitwee: So, I've done it in public...

Elisabeth/Leslie: Who hasn't?!

Shocking, isn't it?

Epitwee: I see... It would seem I've underestimated you, whatever your name is.

Basira is just cute. That is all.

Okay, one, that is a dormie sleeping in Epitwee's bed. And two, there is a streaker just STARING at the sleeping dormie, all Edward Cullen style. CREEPY.

Epitwee works in the cafeteria. And mysteriously gets red hair while in uniform.

This is so many kinds of wrong. Who bursts into the bathroom to exhort people to exercise while said people are bathing?! No manners at this school, honestly.

Writing term papers is hard.

Epitwee prevails! The term paper is defeated!

Cael, in his non-see-through and stinking state. Betcha Leslie/Elisabeth would like him to be translucent again, since now he makes a better door than a window.

Everyone has to wander in when Epitwee's bed is in use. Get out, she's trying to sleep!

She is a delicate flower of beauty and freshness first thing in the morning. Good morning, Quasimodo!

Rain is the most fascinating thing ever!

Epitwee and Hal have a date at the Crypt'o'Night club. Because, well, goth.

Hal reacts to tickling much like a little girl.

They danced a little, then kissed. Ah, romance. I like to imagine they are dancing to "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs.

Then they judged the other people in the club together. Oh, they are so goth! XD

They are an attractive couple, wouldn't you say?

Again with the kissing. They do it on their own!

I finally give some of the dormies new hair styles. I still cannot remember who is Elisabeth and who is Leslie, but that's Andrea there on the other side of Cael. She's quiet, keeps to herself.

Epitwee refuses to wait for the cafeteria lady when she's hungry. She's a take-charge kind of gal.

Lightning sets the deck on fire. Cael flips out! But it's raining, so it isn't an issue.

Apparently Epitwee hates chess....?

Oh, no, she just hates cheerleaders. As does Basira, who gets a big fat minus the minute Miss School Spirit starts her chant.

There's a crafty girl. Always thinking!

Autonomous hamburger grilling. Okay then!

The llama mascot was fascinated by Epitwee, but she was Not Interested.

One final stab at the last term paper and....

College is finished! Mmmm, graduation is so fulfilling!

It's time for Epitwee to find a new place to live and start her life!

A shower of confetti heralds a new age stage!

Epitwee is ready to face the real world, in a mod baby doll dress.

Here is her tiny legacy house, situated in charming Veronaville.

The furnishing is sparse and the decorating non-existent, until she can get a job.

Even the sofa is worn... but she actually likes thrift store chic.

The tiny kitchen corner.

And the rickety dining table... but with chairs for two! Soon Hal will move in to share her life.

That's all for now, college is finished. Next update, we'll get down to the important part of the legacy- bringing about the next generation! And since Epitwee wants to have six children, she's got to get a jump on it!

Thanks for reading!

Yesterday, when I was at Nicky and Roger's apartment to let the phone guy in while they were at work/doctor appointment for babby and babby's mother, I was sorely tempted to autonomously clean. I was highly disturbed by this fact, since I don't even autonomously clean my OWN apartment. @_@;;

Good to see Epitwee makes chess-faces almost as interesting as her cousin Friedrich! XD

Her chess faces were kind of awesome. I was very pleased! :D

I hate cleaning, but do it because I have to. I don't know if that counts as autonomous cleaning though!

Gah, the Sims2 AI is just as twisted as the first one.

Or did you tweak the settings to make them do strange things?

No, in fact, most of the hacks I have make them do *less* insane things. I have "sanity" hacks to try to make them slightly less crazy and slightly more sensible. Obviously, it can't all be fixed by hacks though. They're still Sims!

Though, next update my Autonomous Casual Romance hack (ACR) finally shows up. I installed it because it allows for random pregnancy, which I think would make things more life-like and realistic. (I don't want to control everyone's baby-making attempts...) But, it also means if Sims really like each other, they will autonomously go for it on their own. XD

Swell, in general!
