Luca and Nadia Browning’s daughter turns one this summer. Mavis has been a dream come true for Luca, he hated that he missed out on Kai’s baby years. Mavis is very shy, and gets along with her big brother Kai splendidly.
Evan was the first born twin, and is a ball of energy and play. She keeps her parents constantly on their toes, and requires constant supervision.
Dax is his sister’s partner in crime, just as busy and active as her, but much more grumpy. If someone is fussing and needing attention, it’s likely to be Dax.
South Port’s baby boom generation is graduating high school this year, they were the reason why the Elementary and later the High School had renovations over the years.
Elias McCarthy graduated with a 45 SAT Score, just five points shy of getting a partial ride. Despite his parents objections, he has decided to join his girlfriend, Rachael at Eastborough. While he intends to be a Farmer upon graduation, he is majoring in Literature.
His twin brother, Julius McCarthy has no intention of continuing the torture called academics. He scored a 31 SAT, which barely qualified him, and scholarships were zilch. He plans to get a place downtown South Port with some guys, and figure things out for himself.
Aidan Traver graduated also with a 31 SAT Score, and has already enlisted in the Armed Services. He leaves for boot camp at the start of June, and hopes that the military will help him find focus for his life. He does not want to end up like his Dad, withering away in a crappy apartment in a shady neighborhood.
His twin sister, Caitlyn Traver only scored a 30 SAT, meeting the very minimum requirement. She was able to weasel the Dannon Local Business Award for working at the Pacelli Resturante during high school, which pays one full year of tuition. Her low score felt like a wake up call, as she is very determined to be a Social Worker like her Aunt Kenzie and does not want to wind up like her parents.
She is very upset that despite her persuasion, her brother Aidan is enlisted. They have never been separated their entire life, and she can’t imagine starting college without her brother at her side.
Rachael Darling graduated with a 60 SAT score and is eligible for a full ride scholarship tied to her continued participation in ballet at Eastborough. She is majoring in Literature/Ballet, and hoping to make a career in figure skating and/or ballet, with the hopes of opening her own dance studio at the end of her competitive career. She has goals and plans, and doesn’t know how much time she will have to spend with her boyfriend Elias, though she is glad he’s attending university.
Lewis Traver graduated with a 36 SAT Score, and decided to major in Mathematics. He isn’t entirely sure on his career path, maybe Graphic Design like his Dad though his dream job would be anything to do with science fiction, he just isn’t sure what that would be.
Last graduate, Zilla McCarthy graduates with a 33 SAT Score, and is majoring in Physics. While her Dad was discredited and shunned from the Natural Science community, Zilla is hoping to make her own strides in the very same field.
Graduating Eastborough University this year is not Lauren Schehl, she flunked the last semester of her senior year and has been placed on academic probation.
Alice London graduated with a 3.2 degree in Psychology, her grades dipped when she had the falling out with best friend Lainey and wasn’t able to lift it back to a 3.5 GPA. She is moving into an apartment with Lainey in South Port, and will start working on her Masters Degree immediately. Her parents are helping to pay her bills until she can land a job in her field, and finish her Masters.
Brooklyn Lange graduated with a 3.5 in Economics, and has already been hired as a High School Science teacher, and possible Home Economics; she hasn’t quite agreed to the latter. She is hoping to find her own apartment in South Port to rent, and to live near to the school to keep her commute time low, plus her boyfriend Oliver McCarthy lives downtown too.
Rosabella Steinman graduated with a 3.5 GPA in Art. She has also been hired at Jefferson High School as a Music and Art teacher. She is renting a duplex out in Millwood and doesn’t mind the commute when it comes with a quiet neighborhood in the town she grew up in.
Notes: Yes, I gave Zilla surgery, but not much. Basically the center of her eyebrows went straight down into a very angry, very low scowl. I simply gave the center a bit of a lift, and I raised her eyebrows a smidge so her eyes weren’t cut into so harshly (they look obnoxious in photo because of the maxis pose). I have also decided that I will continue to play Zilla… I think if she marries a beige type of guy that she will have good looking kids even, and if anyone inherits her giant eyeballs, I can see that on the newborn and I won’t save.
Elias wanted to go to college, and he wanted to major in literature… so I let him. I don’t know how a degree in lit will help with farming. I just felt like a bad guy saying no.
Lewis is a huge nerd, he loves toys, sci-fi, paranormal… He matches perfectly for a paranormal career but other than having Annie be a call person (which I played as a hokey thing), I don’t know what career to put him in. Any ideas? I’ll download a good, realistic one too if anyone has any ideas. He also matches for Graphic Design, I don’t want him in anything comic book/writing related, I have enough of those with Peter and Meg.
Julius reminds me of his Grandpa George, but *where!* did those big lips come from?! Seriously… I’m dumbfounded! Lips don’t get bigger on the men, they get smaller… and no one has lips similar to him at all, he’s an anomaly.
I’m happy with all the toddler birthdays, Mavis was the most surprising for me, but I’ve grown to like her unique look. I was happy to see that Dax and Evan are not clones of Chaz. I felt that Grace and Ben had very similar faced daughters and was afraid of that happening with Emma and Chris.
Thanks for reading!
