Last time, Fyodor got engaged, Flavius looked very pretty and Fiyero wasn't entirely suited to the quest for a spouse. With the Gen 6 boys headed into their Junior year, it's full steam ahead towards GETTING THROUGH BLOODY UNIVERSITY. Oh. And finding husbands. That too.
Fiyero barely even knows Mohawk, but his abundance of nice points mean that he's still worried about that worrying shade of blue he's turning.
His brothers are not so kind. He's dying right behind you, guys. You could least take it inside.
Remember how Fyodor and Douglas got engaged last update? Yeah. Douglas doesn't see any reason why that should mean not shagging Steven any more.
I don't see this going BOOM at alllllll.
Fiyero heads out on the town and actually meets another two-bolter! It's suddenly raining men around here!
His name is Vittorio Bridges, and I think he likes Fiyero too. That's a silvery shade of blond, by the way, not grey.
So, hands up anyone who couldn't see this one coming?
Douglas seems a little surprised that Fyodor has an issue with his fiancé snogging other men. After all, it isn't like he's still shagging Steven.
Except, of course, he is.
Fyodor has seven nice points, but this is the turning point: the moment that turns a mild-mannered uni student into the Hulk.
Let's skip back to the lovely Vittorio.
And, after a change of hairstyle, you can see just how lovely he is.
Oh hey. Mohawk didn't die. Yay Mohawk!
I try not to play favourites and let my sims choose their own partners, but I am just such a Vittorio fan, guys. He's sweet and ridiculous, and he's a Fortune Sim too, so he gets Fiyero's weird desire to buy sculptures all the time.
VITTORIO: So, we've been on a couple of dates now. Wanna make out?
I'll take that as a yes.
They look really good together.
I think they think so too.
All is not sweetness and light in the dorm, however. Fiyero saw Douglas cheating on Fyodor and, like the good big brother that he is, he's not about to let Douglas get away with it.
Fyodor, on the other hand, is taking out his anger on Steven.
This is the first of many arse-kickings that Steven will be receiving over the rest of his university career.
Fiyero rolled the want to streak. I've never had a Sim do that before, but who was I to deny him his jollies?
Ooh, it's a present!
Not bad for a broke uni student. Thanks, Vittorio!
I guess the wedding's still on, then.
He's your fiance, Douglas. You could go talk to him, you know, instead of just staring at him through the front door for hours.
Flavius is way too simsexy to get caught up in all the drama going on around here.
I think Fyodor's about to wipe that smile off your face, Steven.
Before he can attack, though, Douglas wanders past and thinks it's a good idea to flirt with Steven with his pissed-off fiance standing only feet away.
He's not the brightest sim in the neighbourhood, is Douglas.
Yeah, I'd be looking worried too, if I were you, Steven.
FLAVIUS & FIYERO: *eat their breakfast and ignore the love triangle*
Probably a good idea, boys.
STEVEN: Daaaaamn, Douglas! You look hot when you're making out with my sworn enemy.
Oh yeah. Apparently the on-again-off-again relationship is on again. Hey, I can't keep track either.
So this is Steven whining because he can't join Fyodor and Douglas in the hot tub while they're sexing it up.
I am starting to think that the boy is a few bytes short of a kilobyte if you know what I mean...
Case in point: bitching about Fyodor to his big brother.
Flavius is one of the most laid-back sims to ever exist, but even he isn't cool with that. Let's get a close up on that expression, shall we?
Speaking of Flavius, he and Nathen have been wanting to get engaged for a while...
…so, during a date at the dorm, Flavius goes down on one knee.
Nothing says I love you like a proposal right by the front door.
Nathen doesn't seem to mind. If he does, he hides it well enough to say yes.
Cheating is tiring work.
I've never played with the bonfire before. It's rather pretty.
The Gen Six boys are all still great friends.
And Fiyero doesn't have an enemy in the world, which is why he looks so sad and confused here.
Handcuffed by a guy in a llama jacket. I wonder what this could mean.
Don't look so sad, Fiyero! I promise it's not as scary as it seems!
Oh hey, it's the secret society! (Of course.)
The jacket suits you, Fiyero. You're really only here for one reason, though.
Welcome to the dormitory, cow plant!
Basically, I got sick and tired of Steven breaking Fyodor and Douglas up every five minutes, so figured that it wouldn't be entirely dreadful if he should accidentally find himself eaten.
Unfortunately, Mohawk was the first one to cop it. And after surviving several days underneath the snow, as well :(
His replacement was this dashing young man.
Yeah, he didn't last long.
FIYERO: A toast to lengthening my life span with the blood of innocents!
Oh hey, what's this?
Ooh, a shiny!
I've never had the genie's lamp in my game before. I think I'll save its magic for a Time Of Great Need. It's the Sims. There's sure to be a Time Of Great Need.
WAIT ONE MINUTE, FLAVIUS LAWSON! WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING???
So, after showing zero interest in any kind of romance with anybody but Nathen since birth, Flavius suddenly decides to shag his brother's mortal enemy.
I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN YOU, FLAVIUS.
You know you're in a dorm when random urns appear and you don't even know who died.
Dead dormie is replaced by William "no relation" Lawson, though! I am not entirely thrilled by this, given that, between the cow plant and the ghosts, dormies don't always have the longest lifespan.
See what I mean? Damnit, Red. Not cool.
THIS IS WHAT YOU HAD SEX WITH, FLAVIUS.
Yeah, still disappointed.
William survived the ghost scare, and being in close proximity to Fiyero all of the time help them to fall in love.
It's still Vittorio whom is Fiyero's (and my) main focus, however.
While on a date, they order the "chef's choice". The chef is a bit of a weirdo, given that he seems to have chosen a prawn entrée for Fiyero and a cake dessert for Vittorio. Naturally.
The tragedy of love: Pink Dress is hot for Bowling Shirt, who is hot for Fiyero, who is hot for Vittorio.
Speaking of Fiyero's feelings for Vittorio, he has a surprise.
VITTORIO: Ohmigod! An engagement ring!
Fiyero is anxious...
VITTORIO: Ooooh. Shiiiiiiny.
..but he needn't be. Vittorio's a Fortune Sim, remember? He's not about to say no to a rock that big.
BLUE SHIRT: I'll have what he's having.
Grand vampires are absolute whizzes when it comes to pinball.
Soooooo I think it might be time to get a new dorm. William's not a ghost. He's just feeling a little transparent right now.
Baldie popped back to say hi.
I will never understand why it's easier to wee beside the toilet than into it.
Flavius brings me some butterflies as an apology for his awful taste in photobooth hook-ups.
Okay, the next generation of Lawsons to go to uni are definitely getting a new dorm. Fyodor isn't going crazy. He's actually slapping Steven here. It's just that Steven decided to turn invisible for a while. Possibly because he's sick of Fyodor slapping him all the time.
It doesn't work. Visible or invisible, Steven's life largely consists of getting beaten up.
Doesn't he look thrilled by that?
And FINALLY it's time for the boys to graduate. Fiyero doesn't look too much like a freak in his graduation robes.
Even Catterick came to Fiyero's graduation party – along with his parents, Vittorio and Nathen.
Generation six's heir-spouse meets generation five's heir and heir-spouse. Luckily, they get along well.
And what would a graduation party be without one final smustle in the dorm?
Festivities over, Fiyero grows older in a shower of confetti...
...and still looks much the same.
With uni over, he's headed back to the legacy house, where marriage and babies are sure to follow. But, before then, one final university note:
I'm pretty sure I've worked out why Flavius is so very uninterested in romance 99% of the time. If you sort the people he knows by attraction, the third from the top is Fiyero
Flavius, you are a weird bastard, but I do love you.
Next time: Generation Seven!
