Run this town

Round 12: Spring 2018
last update/next update

Liv Harris is 20.
(Deacon is 53, Niall and Erin are 23.)

Narrated by Liv Harris

My parents bought me a guitar for my 20th birthday. It was also a reward for completing my sophomore year with a 3.9 GPA. A couple of guys have a band on campus and they asked me to join them. I'm now the lead singer and guitarist. I changed my hairstyle to match my new rockstar lifestyle.

I've become friends with Beau who plays drums in our band. I've been a bit lonely since Erin moved back to Wellington so it's nice to be able to hang out with Beau every now and then. We usually have dinner at Betty's Diner after the band rehearsal.

I don't know if I'll be spending much time with him in the future though. He tried to kiss me one day when we were leaving the diner. I just want to be friends so I turned him down. He was pretty cool about and I hope this doesn't affect our band. I don't see the band really going anywhere but it's nice to unwind and just play after hours of studying music theory.

I think I've changed a lot since my freshman year. I was quite a maneater back then but now it just makes me uncomfortable when guys call me and try to ask me out on a date.

I'm pretty much concentrating on my studies now. I know I want to be a rockstar but I also want to graduate with good grades so that I can start teaching or composing in case I won't make it big in the pop and rock music world.

I'm also trying to learn how to cook. I lived my sophomore year on pizza and hamburgers and chinese takeout but you get bored with that after a while. It's nice to be able to cook something for myself.

Niall and I don't see each other very often but he comes over whenever his basketball team is playing near Brixton.

One time his friend Beverly tagged along. I didn't know what to think. She followed him around like a puppy and kept interrupting our conversation.

I know we've agreed that we're not exclusive but I find it rude for him to drool over her right in front of me.

He was very nice though and acted like nothing weird was going on. He asked if I needed any help with my term paper and even cleaned up the table after we had eaten. It just got me even more suspicious.

I finally asked him if she was one of his other girls. He just stared at me looking really surprised. Then he caressed my cheek and said that he wouldn't have brought her here if she was. She's apparently working as a publicist for his team but I could tell that she has a crush on him.

After they had left I realized that Niall didn't really deny having other girls. He only said that Beverly isn't one of them.

The next day dad came over and let's just say that he wasn't very pleased with my new style. He told me that my hair looks awful and that my clothes look ridiculous. Nice one, dad. It really made my day.

I laid down the rules. I told him that I'm an adult and I can do whatever I want with my hair and my clothes and my life.

I think he finally got my point of view. He knows I love my family but I make my own decisions. He gave me a hug and said that he's proud of me.

"I know your mother and I have always wanted our kids to be independent and believe in themselves. Mission accomplished!" he said before he left.

I felt that I needed some cheering up so I called Erin and asked whether she'd like to have a girls' night out. My timing was perfect since Iona was staying at Greg's that weekend.

We had heard that the Twilight Zone was closed a couple of weeks ago and there are rumors that it's going to be transformed into a movie theatre. We went to Merry-Go-Round which was formerly a gay club but now it's open to everyone.

After having some dinner at the 2nd floor restaurant we came back to ground level and had some drinks at the bar.

Then we went to dance the night away on the dance floor. I don't remember the last time I've had so much fun.

Erin's boyfriend Toby happened to come to the nightclub with some of his friends. At first Erin said to him that we're having a girls' night but I told her I didn't mind if she wanted to continue the night with him. I ended up drinking way too much and had the worst hangover ever.

Grades year 2018
Liv: A+ and A+, GPA 3.9, drama (musical performance)

  • Title reference: Run this town by Jay-Z featuring Kanye West & Rihanna
  • I'm listing the student's focus subjects from now on, I got the idea from Laura and Shana.
  • Liv turns down every guy except Niall. I'm taking this as a sign that she wants a monogamous relationship with him.
  • I was going to do the university in one update but it would've been too long and it's hard to combine the two households. So next update will be Danny and Janie and baby Bridget.


  1. Wow, has she ever changed. I like her dress and fishnets, I know her parents probably flip out everytime they see thier baby girl with her new look.

  2. Apple Valley, thanks for reading :) Liv really has changed, both in style and in mind. I think she's much more mature now. I wanted to get her a really edgy look, seeing she wants to be a rock star. Deacon wasn't very happy with the change.

  3. Well, it must have been a shock to Deacon to see his baby girl with a mohawk! She looks great. I love her make-up. I rarely use that bright eyeshadow but there are some Sims who really suit it and Liv is one of them.

    So Liv wants to be exclusive! I wonder what Niall will think of that. Sounds like they need to have an honest talk about that.

  4. Carla, Deacon was making all these disapproving faces when they talked which was perfect for my purposes. Most of my sims are quite "vanilla" when it comes to clothes and hair and makeup and it's so much fun to have a sim with an edgy style.

    I think I'm going to pop in to play Niall for a while to see what he's up to. I was surprised to see Liv turn down Beau and she also turned down David (another dormie) who she slept with on her fresman year.
