So I get this popup — Joey Schlick has gotten a divorce, do I want to change his last name? Excuse me??? That marriage has been protected since forever! I thought for sure I had checked on that little detail when the new phase of StoryProgression dropped some of my settings. Then, while dealing with the name change popups (got one for Hannah, too), a notice pops up with Joey declaring his undying animosity toward Sergei! Ok… what’s up with that? Then another notice pops up with Carol Brady saying how much she loves the taste of Joey’s pale skin and the feel of his breath upon her neck! It would seem Joey hates Sergei for stealing his mistress, who he then dumped his wife for and has promptly stolen away from his little brother……. or something. LMAO
That was followed a short time later by a note from Joey expressing sorrow that things with Hannah had to end the way they did. *sniffle*
Ah, but the story didn’t begin there. Last week Sergei and Rebekah broke up and I started getting notices that he (in his capacity as the Town Baron) was wrapped around the little finger of Carol Brady. Then it was Sarah’s finger. Then a notice popped up that Sergei and Carol were engaged. But he was still wrapped around Sarah’s pinky. Now this. What is SV2E coming to?
I thought about reuniting Hannah and Joey, she is, after all, older than dirt and they were high school sweethearts. My plan was always for them to be together forever. However, after getting all those little notices today it seemed like the story might be more interesting if I let it play through. Maybe Hannah will still be around after all is said and done and I can get her back with Joey, but since she’s already more than a sim-year past her expiry date that’s unlikely. Sigh. Oh well, it was good while it lasted.
