Venus doom

Round 14: Autumn 2022
last update/next updates: Zach/Stephen/Kaitlyn and Eve

Kaitlyn Brennan, Stephen Marlowe and Eve Midlock are 21 and Zach Whitfield is 18.
(Dawn is 18.)

Narrated by Zach Whitfield.

Mom and dad flipped out big time when they heard in the summer that I hadn't registered a major yet. I told them that I was going to do it anyway in the beginning of autumn semester but they seemed convinced that I was just slacking off. So I decided to prove them wrong and registered for Physics and Premedicine. I know I have to work my ass off to get into med school after graduation so I thought I'd better start already.

Kaitlyn and Stephen are good role models when it comes to studying. They're always reading or writing or doing something school related.

I don't know when Eve studies because it feels like she's always trying to earn enough money to pay her last tuition. Somehow she manages to get decent grades but I can see that she's really pushing her limits sometimes.

We've been semi-flirty towards each other since the beginning of this semester. I think she likes me but it's hard to tell because she always plays cool. I on the other hand probably seem like a love-sick teenager whenever I'm around her.

I decided we all needed some time off from our studies so one afternoon I told the gang that we're leaving the dorm for some well-earned fun. We went to The Lion's Roar - it's the same old pub that's been on campus for decades but it was recently re-opened with a new name. Life seemed pretty good with a cold beer in my hand and a pretty girl sitting next to me.

Stephen and I decided to play a game of darts while the girls stayed in our table and talked. They've decided to become roommates after they graduate and they're constantly talking about apartments and furniture et cetera.

Stephen doesn't have a clue where he's going to be living but he just says there's plenty of time to decide. I guess he'll move back home if he doesn't come up with anything else by the time he graduates.

We played darts for a while but then Stephen got bored and went to cuddle with Kaitlyn instead. They do that a lot. I'm kind of surprised that they won't move in together but I guess neither of them is really ready for that kind of step.

I know for sure that I'm not ready for any kind of commitment at the moment but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy Eve's company. She's so different from all the other girls I've known. Most girls start daydreaming about weddings and babies and that kind of stuff the moment you talk to them for more than 5 minutes. Eve on the other hand looks like she couldn't care less. She was engaged to this one guy but they broke up in the spring. She refuses to talk about him but Stephen told me that their engagement was nothing more than a drunken mistake.

It started to look like Stephen and Kaitlyn had forgotten all about us so we headed off to the bar and got a few more drinks.

I was surprised to see Dawn in the pub. She usually doesn't go anywhere after her classes but the nanny had told her to go out and have fun. She seemed pretty cheerful and said that it's all because it'll only be a few months before Finn moves in with her and Shea. I just hope everything goes fine for them.

We got back from the pub and somehow Eve ended up in my room. I couldn't keep my hands off of her.

We ended up making out but nothing else happened.

It was so awkward to see her in the morning. She said that it would be too weird for us to date because we're sort of family. And we would barely see each other anyway since she's leaving the campus soon. I didn't really agree but whatever. It's not like I'm in love with her or anything.

It still kind of blows to be rejected so I went upstairs and avoided her for the rest of the day.

Grades, autumn 2022:
- Kaitlyn, biology/general microbiology, A+, GPA 3.1
- Stephen, psychology/forensic psychology, B+, GPA 3.7
- Eve, drama/modern dance, B+, GPA 3.4
- Zach, physics/premedicine, A+, GPA 3.6

  • Title reference: Venus doom by HIM.
  • Zach and Eve are all flirty flirty but they don't roll any specific wants for each other, just the usual generic romance sim wants (make out with 3 different sims, go out on a date etc.). I don't think either of them is ready for a serious relationship yet so we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
  • Kaitlyn, Stephen and Eve have already graduated but they're still in Brixton. You'll see them all grown-up in the January 2023 birthday update.
  • I've decided to make Eve and Kaitlyn roommates. I considered moving Kaitlyn in with Stephen but that just didn't feel right at the moment. I haven't decided yet what to do with Stephen. I also need to decide whether Kaitlyn will remain a playable NPC or become a real playable.


  1. Eve has a point about that "almost family" stuff, it is awkward even if it's not blood related. Can't wait to see Eve and Kaitlyn in their own place.

  2. True, the "almost family" thing could be weird. And with Eve almost ready to graduate, they're going to be in very different places in their lives in just a few months. Perhaps there's another cutie around Zach could focus on. ;)

    And pre-med! I'm very impressed with Zach right now! I thought there was another doctor in his family but now I'm thinking I might have made that up! Good luck to him anyway!

  3. Apple Valley, yeah, I think their families in particular would find it weird if they started dating. I can't wait either, I've never had roommates before so it's going to be fun!

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Carla, I'm sure there are plenty of other cuties for Zach to focus on. ;) Both he and Eve are so commitment-phobic at the moment that I doubt anything serious would come of it even if they tried dating.

    No other doctors in Zach's family, actually Grace Cooper is the only playable in the medicine career at the moment. But Zach's aunt Regan is a scientist so maybe you were thinking about her.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  4. Funny, I thought I already commented ... must have dreamed about it I gues, lol!

    Glad to see Zach decided on a major, and I'm pretty impressed he's pre-med!! Good luck to him.

    I do understand Eve, about being "almost family" and it being weird to date.
    I'm pretty sure there are very good matches out there for both of them!

  5. Tanja, that happens to me all the time, I think I've already commented but I haven't, lol.

    Zach would've probably gone through university with an undeclared major so I had to choose one for him! Most of my sims roll a want for a major at some point during their first semester but not Zach.

    I think there's plenty of fish in the sea for both Eve and Zach. I don't think neither of them is ready to settle down for just one partner anyway so it's better if they stay away from each other!

    Thanks for reading and sorry it took me so long to reply. :)

  6. I agree with Eve and the others the "almost family" thing can be weird. Even if it is through marriage or some other distant none blood relationship. Which the sims handled family relationships a little bit better.

    That is a big step for Zach, going from undecided to pre-med. I hope he is ready for a lot of studying.

  7. Well, I do kind of see Eve's point, but I'm more with Zach; Rianna is her stepmother. But anyway, I think Eve doesn't need to be dating anyone at the moment. Stephen and Kaitlyn are so cute; I hope they stay together.I hope Zach's ready for the commitment; four years of college, then four to eight years of med school, then a residency before you can become a doctor. I'm still rooting for him though.

  8. Too bad about Zach and Eve. I'm sure he'll find someone else and there is that awkward family-ish connection.

  9. oasisvalley, I think Eve doesn't want to shake things with her new family. They haven't known each other for that long and she doesn't want to do anything that could jeopardize her relationship with them.

    I think Zach realized that if he really wants to become a surgeon then he can't slack off anymore.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Fini, I think it wouldn't be that big of an issue for Eve if she had known her father's family for longer. You're right, she shouldn't be dating anyone right now and I think she agrees with you.

    Zach has a long road ahead before he becomes a doctor but it's something he wants so he's prepared to do the work.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    heredoncove, Zach has girls lined up so he won't have any trouble finding someone else, lol. You never know what will happen in the future but for the meantime I think it would be wise for him to concentrate on his studies more.

    Thanks for reading. :)
