No More Threats

The only thing raising Kev’s spirits from the pit of despair is that he’s with his daughter. Not because he cares for her, but because he likes having his enemies around so he can shout at them. Kev has a wish to be mean to Alice. He wakes her up.

Alice hasn’t seen her father for days. She has no idea what has led Kev to be so angry.

She just knows that he’s here, and he’s yelling at her.

She begins to respond and accuse him of being mean again, in a mirror of their earlier arguments. But where Kev had only threatened with physical violence before, this time he acts.

    Oh heck no!
    Kev is so mean, I think he needs a job
    Lol, Gosh, I love this story :), you did a really well job.

    • 2 james. June 26, 2009 at 11:57 am

      Almost as well a job as you did writing that sentence.

    • 5 sims3 lover!! June 26, 2009 at 1:43 pm

      how do u make your sims lose all there money roburky?

      • 6 ArmouredKin June 26, 2009 at 4:05 pm

        If you want to get rid of money, just buy stuff, put it in Live Mode for a second, then sell the stuff for less than you bought it. Job done.

      • 7 curium June 26, 2009 at 7:42 pm

        Or you can use “testingCheatsenabled true” and then use the cheat “familyfunds (whatever your family’s last name is) XXX” with the X’s being an amount; in this case, O.

      • 8 j3d1mast3r June 26, 2009 at 11:03 pm

        you could use the “donate to charity” interaction w/ your mailbox, although this may only be for “nice” sims.

      • 9 neon June 27, 2009 at 6:25 am

        you just type in “familyFunds familyname amount”…for example if your familys last name was smith you write “familyFunds smith 50″…then they get %50!

      • 10 Ashely June 28, 2009 at 2:52 pm

        why would they want to get rid of money they’re broke

    • 11 Kameron June 26, 2009 at 5:13 pm

      yes, wow this is awesome. I didn’t even want the game until NOW!

    • 13 Single Old Mom June 27, 2009 at 6:24 am

      I’m not entirely certain how I did it, but I created a single mother in sims today. I feel bad, because I tried every way I could think of to try and get her romantic interest to marry her, but no matter what I did he would still go home the next day. Eventually I just had them ‘try for a baby’ and hoped that he would marry her because its the right thing to do, but when she brought the baby home and he left right after, before she could even fulfill her wish to get a hug from him, I realized I’d done something horribly wrong with her life.

      The worst thing was that although I had time frozen, and therefore my sim had all the time in the world, I was afraid that he wasn’t asking her to marry him because they were young adults – so I aged her. Now not only is she a single mother, but she is also an old one, essentially having waited all this time for him to do right by her.

      • 14 Pantalones June 27, 2009 at 6:16 pm

        Well, I guess just like in real life, things didn’t go quite as planned. :) You could just cheat it to get them married, if you’re that upset about it. Or, you could just raise the baby as a single mom and see how that works out. You might have fun playing something you’re not used to.

        You gotta get sims in the right mood in 3 before they even think about romantic interaction–though, er, if they were sleeping together than the option should have come up by then, huh?…Well, I know for sure that it’s a whole lot harder to do than in sims 1 and 2.

      • 15 Alexander July 14, 2009 at 8:22 pm

        @Single Old Mom:
        “Eventually I just had them ‘try for a baby’ and hoped that he would marry her because its the right thing to do,”

        You’re joking, right? Otherwise I’d say what is wrong with you woman?! Hope you haven’t applied your twisted belief in RL.

        … oh maaan … peace

      like I said before Call the cops! arrest him for inhumane abbuse!

  2. 18 Sylvanna June 26, 2009 at 7:23 am

    OMGGGG! Call social service! Abusive and deranged father on the loose!

  3. 19 jamie June 26, 2009 at 7:24 am

    OSHI-

    Time to call the cops

  4. 20 Samantha June 26, 2009 at 7:27 am

    if it wasn’t for her curfew I’d say she needs to just stop coming “home”. We all know that she’d be fine without him.

    First homelessness and neglect…now physical abuse. What next will poor alice have to endure before she finds happiness?

  5. 21 A.P June 26, 2009 at 7:58 am

    Ok wow, if i were alice-thank god im not- i would attack my father back. and if alice does become succesful and rich when she becomes an adult i think alice should brag to kev (if he is alive of course) that she is way better than him and that he can rot in the park while she lives in a mansion.

    •AND OMG MICHAEL JACKSON DIED, may he rest in peace.

  6. 24 Desi Quintans June 26, 2009 at 8:00 am

    Mess him up! She should totally fight back.

  7. 25 Carmen June 26, 2009 at 8:04 am

    O_O Alice should move out!

    I remember my sims were so angry at each other in the second instalment that they packed up and left on their own accord. I wonder if that’ll happen here.

  8. 26 Sammy June 26, 2009 at 8:09 am

    I still feel sympathy for Kevin, despite his obvious glaring personality issues.

    • 27 GerandLer June 26, 2009 at 6:48 pm

      What’s wrong with you? how can you feel bad for kev? he’s awful!!!!!!!!!!!! He chose his life and poor alice has to just wait until she can leave the pain of being near her father and move out!

      • 28 Eddy June 26, 2009 at 7:17 pm

        Actually, he didn’t choose his life, the woman running this blog did. The character at no point chose to not have money, or to sleep in the park.

      • 29 may June 26, 2009 at 7:17 pm

        He’s insane. That’s pretty sad.

      • 30 j3d1mast3r June 26, 2009 at 11:05 pm

        Wait, eddy,I believe that the writer doesn’t do much. Except for occasionally fulfilling a wish (Alice donating to charity after her first paycheck) I think it’s mostly AI

      • 31 Sean June 26, 2009 at 11:35 pm

        I feel sorry for Kev too.

        He’s insane. He’s homeless. He is, in every way, as much a victim of this situation as Alice is.

        Alice suffers because of this, and it’s easier to feel sympathy for Alice because she’s a lot nicer than him. But once upon a time, Kev was probably nice too.

        He’s been on the streets a lot longer, probably, let’s not forget. Who knows what Alice will be like when she’s older?

      • 32 Samantha June 27, 2009 at 7:54 am

        a lot of the time when i let alice grow up without my interaction (as an npc) she ends up with the grumpy trait instead of unlucky….she becomes sort of miserable to be around. to think that kev once was much more like alice is not too hard to imagine.

  9. 33 thaaeroprincess June 26, 2009 at 8:12 am

    Oh hell no! (excuse my language) But I know he didn’t just slap his daughter! Ok where is Z so he can come rescue Alice from this torture…

    • 34 Kalika June 26, 2009 at 2:08 pm

      lol I love how people call him ‘Z’ just ’cause no one can remember how to spell his name XD
      But I don’t think Sims is implemented that NPCs know their friend is in trouble so they should come to the rescue XD

      • 35 thaaeroprincess June 26, 2009 at 4:35 pm

        Lol, yeah I can’t remember how to spell his name… I don’t think NPCs work that way either but I’m sure if Alice went to his house crying he’d let her stay the night at least.

      • 36 Kalheka June 26, 2009 at 9:31 pm

  10. 37 koolycat June 26, 2009 at 8:16 am

    omg nooo. kev is so cruel. i remember in sims 2, if one of the family members didn’t like anyone else in the family, they would just run away but does that happen in sims 3 i wonder? alice should just pack up and leave.

  11. 38 Dragonsama June 26, 2009 at 8:35 am

    Poor Alice!

    I love this story.. XD

  12. 39 melaniem June 26, 2009 at 8:42 am

    While I love this blog, I wish the *episodes* are longer. Have they gotten shorter, or am i just wishing time would go faster?

    • 40 SteelWolf June 26, 2009 at 12:15 pm

      The episodes are always four panels but I’m feeling the same way – I think it’s just that we’ve gotten more into it. It was great when I first started because I could run through multiple pages as I caught up. Now I just have to wait.

    • 41 somegirl June 26, 2009 at 3:44 pm

      they’re definitely getting shorter.

  13. 44 Miao June 26, 2009 at 8:51 am

    As much as I try to be fair-minded and sympathetic toward Kev, I’m finding myself really angry at him for blaming an innocent for his own troubles and taking out his frustrations on her.

    Poor girl.

  14. 45 ninja_superstar June 26, 2009 at 9:23 am

    Please keep blogging. This is a great comedy, indeed. Video games have become so boring and unimaginative. I’m so glad someone has found a way to make them entertaining again.

  15. 46 Mark Taylor June 26, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Ooh Kevs turned nasty. I think you missed an “idea” out on this line: “Alice hasn’t seen her father for days. She has no what has led Kev to be so angry.”.

    Loving the story.

    • 47 Jake June 26, 2009 at 3:55 pm

      How funny… I hadn’t noticed the word was missing. I guess the mind just fills in the details — somewhat like the way it works when playing The Sims.

  16. 48 Chulie June 26, 2009 at 9:25 am

    I’m expecting Alice becoming an adult, so she could run away from her father.

    • 49 LG June 26, 2009 at 7:10 pm

      I can’t wait until she becomes an adult and can leave him, but I wonder – can Sims commit murder? I worry that Alice won’t even survive until adulthood…

  17. 50 Klari June 26, 2009 at 9:27 am

    Aww.No! Kev is mean!

  18. 51 Steph June 26, 2009 at 9:27 am

    *GASP*! Kev has so overstepped the line! I hope Alice gives him what for! Or that she grows up mega rich and then leaves him behind to stew in his own filth!

  19. 52 Casi Nerina June 26, 2009 at 9:29 am

    This is like… strange and freaky. You can actually abuse the Sims… as a sim…

  20. 53 MP June 26, 2009 at 9:34 am

    Aw Hell NO! Where’s Social Services when you need ‘em?

  21. 54 Jane June 26, 2009 at 9:47 am

    Hahahaha… this storyline is getting everyone up in arms lol… love it!

  22. 55 Alicia June 26, 2009 at 9:56 am

    Poor Alice…

  23. 56 Swirlypepper June 26, 2009 at 10:30 am

    Oh no, poor Alice! It’s such a shame that other family who liked her as a kid don’t put up with her any more, I wish somebdoy sweet would just adopt her :(

  24. 58 John Smith June 26, 2009 at 11:04 am

    MY GOD

  25. 59 Kansine June 26, 2009 at 11:07 am

    My teenager sim-girls dad used to slap her too, but she was bad-tempered enough to always give him back O_o

  26. 61 Kameron June 26, 2009 at 11:33 am

    I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!!! She’s gotta fight back!!! CALL SOCIAL SERVICES!!!

    Wow! This blog is amazing! Right now its my favorite website!!! REALLY GOOD JOB!

    -RIP Michael Jackson

  27. 62 greymountain30 June 26, 2009 at 11:43 am

    Oh, Poor Alice. -_-”

    Your story writing skills are brilliant! I can’t wait for the next installment, but of course I will ^__^ Though I do wish they were longer. But anyway, great job, and keep up the good work!!!!

  28. 63 Dani June 26, 2009 at 11:49 am

    I cannot believe this sim would go so low as to hit his own daughter. A little like real life, which is the point I suppose. Its just not nice.

    I feel really sorry for Alice. She really needs to get out of there.

  29. 64 Mea June 26, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    Hi :)

    I don’t think Alice can just move out, she’s a “minor” and there’s no emancipations option, though in her case there should be an exception.

    Alice does however need to spend some time working up a relationship reallllly well so that the moment she’s an adult she can start asking to stay the night. LIke so many… I do consider Z a prime choice.

    • 65 LG June 26, 2009 at 7:12 pm

      Z would be a great choice – after all, Alice has taken his bed before, and, instead of getting angry, he just made funny faces in the mirror. How can you not like a guy like that? :)

  30. 66 Tom Haczewski June 26, 2009 at 12:27 pm

    Up to now, Kev was just a loveable crazy. Now, he’s off my Christmas card list.

    What a bastard.

  31. 68 Adiwijaya Iskandar June 26, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    Oh that bastard of a father! Oh, he’s gone too far. Oh the drama! More more more!

  32. 69 Allie June 26, 2009 at 12:59 pm

    OMG I can’t wait to see what happens! I know it sounds bad, but I hope Kev dies soon…

  33. 70 Tasha June 26, 2009 at 1:34 pm

    I like this story!! =) I’m waiting for the next part. Keep up the good work ;)

  34. 71 Jackrabbit June 26, 2009 at 1:47 pm

    Slapped by someone who is suddenly old enough to be your grandfather. And yet he is your father. Alice needs to move out. If only she could. :(

  35. 72 sims3 lover!! June 26, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    how do u get rid of all the money roburky?

    • 73 Samantha June 26, 2009 at 3:14 pm

      in a previous comments someone asked the same and roBurkey said they just bought a lot of fish and set them free in some ponds. Doing that effectively gets rid of the money and does no good for them unless they learn to fish…and figure out how to cook it.

      • 74 Sean Nostin June 26, 2009 at 4:06 pm

        Yeah and earlier in this story Alice donated her job money to charity, maybe there’s an option to give the whole lot away.

      • 75 Samantha June 27, 2009 at 7:58 am

        only good sims can donate, and the lot they live on is decorated like a park so other sims will not recognize them as homeless, they merely recognize that there is no inside to the “home”…sims must live on a lot even if there is nothing on them.

  36. 76 sims3 lover!! June 26, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    how do u get rid of all the money roburky?

    and i luv this story!!!!!!!!

    Just becauze you walked out of Yvette’s house with your head between you legs doesn’t mean you come home and hit Alice, even if it is cartoonish with stars flying everywhere (in which it doesn’t look like it hurts)!!!!

    Get it through your head old man: “YOU’RE GONNA DIE IN A COUPLE OF DAYS!!!!!!!!!!”

    at least rekindle your relationship with your daughter loser!!!!

    Geez Kev

    –Grey Sky

    P.S Anybody hear about Micheal Jackson’s death? My damn, the “King of Pop” was called home…i’m gonna miss him! He had 50 tours set up, and i was going to attend the one in London!!!! MAN!!!!!!!!

    R.I.P MJ

    • 82 Chris June 26, 2009 at 4:12 pm

      Anyone *not* hear about Jackson’s death who doesn’t have a TV or similar connection? They’re literally spamming the airwaves with it. Meanwhile, they tack on as a footnote, ‘Oh yeah, Farrah Fawcett died, to…now on to yet another report of Michael Jackson’s death, as the last was over 2 minutes ago!’ :-/

  41. 83 Krixi June 26, 2009 at 2:35 pm

    RIP MICHEAL JACKSON:(

    Anyways,alice has to run away!!!

  42. 84 Livvi June 26, 2009 at 2:41 pm

    Oh… no he didn’t!!

    I hope that:
    Alice grows up REAL FAST and becomes uber rich
    Kev gets left to dumpster diving
    Then Kev dies
    :D

  43. 85 kansine June 26, 2009 at 2:42 pm

    I agree with many, that you update this way too seldom :( I’d like to read more per day!

    • 86 Mea June 27, 2009 at 3:51 pm

      If he updated more we wouldn’t get the suspense, plus this is fascinating writing, do you want quantity over quality? :)

  44. 87 SkyWorld June 26, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    That look on her face is just heartbreaking.

  45. 89 A June 26, 2009 at 2:46 pm

    How will it end?

    I think she’ll have a breakdown caused by Kev’s worsening abuse and get caught breaking into someone’s house looking for food and a place to sleep. She’ll go to prison.
    Then…
    It’s 2 years later, she’s out of prison to find Kev in hospital. He didn’t tell them he had a daughter so she didn’t find him until he was actually dying. She tries to tell him that she loves him and doesn’t want him to die but he can’t really hear her – he just cries and cries.

    On her return to the benches she finds the mailbox full. She opens an old and stained envalope and in it is a letter from a woman Alice hasn’t seen for 18 years – her mother.
    In the letter she begs Kev to forgive her gambling problems, promises him she’s cured now and has a job and a flat in the capital.
    She begs to be allowed to see Alice again at least and includes a stamped envalope in the hope that he’ll find it in his heart to reply.
    Further staining the page with her tears, Alice writes on the back of the letter the first words she’s ever said to her mother.
    Mother,
    It’s Alice. Dad told me you were dead. I’m so sorry, he died today in hospital. The doctor said it was from sleeping so long in the cold and damp.
    He never told me anything about you so I didn’t know why you weren’t with us.
    For so many nights I slept on my bench looking at the stars and thinking that one of them must be you. I always hoped I’d work it out so I could ask you to take me with you. We had so many lonely and cold nights.
    I’ve had some troubles of my own recently and have just left prison.
    I hope that we can forgive one another and find some future for one another.
    The hospital gave me everything Dad had in his pockets, there was a little money and enough for me to get the ticket to come to you.
    I can’t wait to see you again
    Your loving daughter, Alice.

    The series finally closes with Alice getting off the train in the main station…

    Are you crying yet? ;-)

  46. 90 Russ June 26, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Kev is such a schmuck. I wish Alice would haul up and kick his butt after this. How long can she be expected to take that kind of abuse… and now physical? Tie the old fart to the park bench and set it ablaze, Alice.

  47. 92 Banana Bread June 26, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    This is really realistic because, if you think about it, many kids get abused every day (more than one slap across the face). When I was a kid, I got beat down by my father when I hit my Mom. It wasn’t like a slap when I hit my Mom, but a kind of hard poke. My father picked me up, and pushed me unto the floor. He broke my glasses, too. I apologized to my Mom the next day, but my Dad didn’t. I still haven’t forgotten it, nor forgiven him. VERY REALISTIC STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. 93 Ross Presser June 26, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    Is murder possible in the Sims? I mean, for one Sim to murder another?

    • 94 Kansine June 27, 2009 at 6:03 am

      I SO wish it would be possible! Not because I’d hate Kev so much or anything, I just mean that it’s stupid & unrealistic when u can’t kill anyone in sims O_o

  49. 95 Billy R June 26, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    You just HAD to leave us hanging like that. HAD TO! LOL

  50. 96 Samantha June 26, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    Everyone keeps saying that alice should fight back…and murder has been mentioned quite a bit too (this and previous episode)…although what kev has done is beyond forgivable I don’t know alice would ever do either of those since she has the good trait.

    people also keep bringing up Zedadias. We havn’t seen him for quite a while…he was mentioned when Alice was trying to find a bed to sleep in but thats all we’ve heard of him since the hug. I’d like to know how their relationships grown since then. I feel that so far he’s been the only one who has tried to understand her. (as a side note did you create him or did he just show up one day?)

  51. 97 Jason Mc June 26, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    Smack!

    Crazy how I’m actually feeling for these goofy people.
    Really good job!

    Is one day too early for a MJ joke?

    Due to the fact that MJ is 99% plastic, he will be melted down into lego blocks so little kids can play with him for a change…

        have to agree with that.
        Who else wants to join the “Going to Hell Club”
        ghc’s first meeting is on judgement day
        have fun until then.
        Kev has been invited, but he isn’t bad enough yet.
        He’ll feel sorry as he didn’t have an evil trait, but his innapropriate trait will have him laughing at her funeral,if such happens

  52. 100 Renita June 26, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    Nice! I can’t wait for more! :)

  53. 101 sims3bingblog June 26, 2009 at 4:02 pm

    I think this is the first time I’ve read this and actually gasped aloud. I think I need to step away from the Sims for a bit, haha.

    My vote goes to Alice becoming an adult and hooking up with that Zedadias character.

  54. 102 Leis June 26, 2009 at 4:02 pm

    LMAO…in that last screenshot, maybe it’s just me, but Alice looks like she wants to say, “Oh NO you DIDN’T!” Can’t wait for the next one, I hope she kicks his old, grumpy, insane butt.

  55. 103 Katie June 26, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    I wonder if social services will actually come in the game. It’d be cool if they did.

    • 104 Kansine June 27, 2009 at 6:00 am

      I don’t think the social services care about teenagers – they think teens are old enough to take care of themselves :( But for me, social services just came to take one of my babys only because the baby happened to get hungry enough before I noticed! I already fed the baby, but still the social services came to take her! O.o

  56. 105 coolmaggie June 26, 2009 at 4:28 pm

    If you look at her eyes they always seem sad. And when they don’t show sadness they look like they’re showing fear.

  57. 106 Tobyfish June 26, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    Wow, I must have grown up in a far different situation than…damn near all of the commentators. It looks like he just popped her one on the mouth, and people are starting the “Social Services” cries already?

    • 107 Mel June 26, 2009 at 6:27 pm

      Unfortunately, I agree. A simple smack isn’t enough for Social Services to get involved. I think people are just really emotionally involved and want to see a better life for Alice.

  59. 113 Lorraine June 26, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    Hey, maybe just as he’s about to bring his hand down onto her face, the clock will strike midnight and it will be Alice’s birthday. She’ll be a young adult and can leave the smelly, filthy lot forever, either to survive on her own or maybe have a relationship with Zebadias. Here’s hoping.

    • 114 Amber June 26, 2009 at 6:24 pm

      LOL…she’ll look so pretty as and adult.

    • 115 Dan June 26, 2009 at 9:42 pm

      If they don’t get together, I’ll be very upset.

      And then if the author doesn’t bring some kind of meteor down on the whole thing and make Zebadias all insane and abusive, too, I’ll be more upset.

  60. 116 Jeff June 26, 2009 at 5:06 pm

    Alice needs a boyfriend who will drop-kick Kev’s ass.

  61. 117 A_Rachelle June 26, 2009 at 5:08 pm

    Argh! Zebadias needs to save Alice! Then, Alice needs to move in with Zebadias and marry him!

  62. 119 Mackenzie June 26, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    OMG…HE SLAPPED ALICE!

  63. 120 Anjin June 26, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    Wow, that shocked me more than I expected. I’ll be waiting on pins and needles to see Alice’s reaction.

  64. 121 Reign. June 26, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Ok, so what Kev did is wrong. We know.

    But what we also know that he is insane
    and has a bad temper.

    Did you expect him to come home, give her a big hug, talk about her problems, and gab about American Idol?

    No. Didnt think so.
    When you have a character like this,
    its easier to expect the worse.

  65. 122 Ray June 26, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Child abuse! :( Sooo, is Kev still in love with Yvette?

  66. 123 Andrew June 26, 2009 at 5:55 pm

    What?? God, how awful!

    (also, I never realized your Sims could hit other Sims.)

  67. 124 Monica June 26, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    Oh my, I just realized that on the Sims 3 news page this is titled as Alex and Kev! I kind of found this funny. Anyway I love this story! I feel so bad for Alice; she almost seems like a real person. And Kev never ceases to amaze me with the way he exploits his traits. I think that Robin needs to write another story for a different type of Sim family and see how it turns out. Robin is an amazing writer! Keep up the awesomeness!!

  68. 126 Trousle June 26, 2009 at 6:36 pm

    Well, when Alice does grow up and get a good job and lots of money, guess who that money will go to? Since she’s a Good sim, she’ll likely give some to Kev. Even though he’s been verbally abusive, she’s a better person than that. And that is how she will show him, by helping him.

    Also, Kev and Yvette? Eww.

  69. 127 Iain June 26, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    I got into this blog recently and read through each post one after another. Now that I’m caught up and have to wait a day to read each new entry, it’s tedious. Can we please get more posts per day or longer posts?

  70. 128 Todd June 26, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    Alice hasn’t exactly been having the best night, either. I fully expect her to flip out and do something surprising. Hopefully she’ll scream so much at Kev that he starts crying and then the two of them sit down and have a heart to heart.

    I was really hoping Kev would know better than to hit Alice, I liked him on equal terms with her up until now.

    • 129 Leis June 26, 2009 at 9:56 pm

      Yeah, until this happened I really enjoyed them both as well. But hitting her like that….man, I’m kind of hoping Alice picks up some kung fu skills and gives him a beat-down, lol. For all the good, nice things she does, she deserves a break from his nuttiness every once in awhile. It’s funny, because I’m getting so involved in this story and I need to keep reminding myself, “Uh, it IS just a game…”

  71. 130 Andrew June 26, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    I don’t know too much about the Sims, but what happens at a point like this? Do the police come and split the Sims up?

  72. 133 Meredith June 26, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    Alice looks so inosent in the second picture

  73. 134 Anna June 26, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    I can’t believe it!!!!!

    Kev actually hit Alice??? That’s just…! I mean, I gues I expected him to yell at her and all, or do something like that but he hit her?? That’s… more than expected
    Hey, can sims do that on the other games? I’ve looked but I can’t figure it out…

    Also, I don’t think she should end up marrying Ze…be… whatever his name is. I think he should adopt her. Sims Can adopt teenagers, right? …And he should beat up Kev.

    • 135 Kalheka June 26, 2009 at 9:45 pm

      In the first sims game, you could get them to be rude to each other, and slap each other. If you got them into a really bad mood, you could get them into a brawl.

      I didn’t play The Sims 2, but I assume they expanded on that, at least to a certain extent.

      • 136 Haley June 27, 2009 at 4:04 pm

        For the Sims 2, you could slap, poke, fight, and argue. I think there was a few more options, but I can’t remember.

  74. 137 Bob June 26, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    Yuo are a cruel god, and I bet you move in mysterious ways too.

  75. 139 Heirii13 June 26, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    yeah, Alice needs to get herself a real tough guy… like a bodybuilder or a cop so that he can fend off Kev when he barges into the house and takes a bath.

    “Z” seems like a good guy, but I don’t think he’d be willing to stand up to Kev when he snaps one day and comes looking for Alice with an axe. O_O;;

  76. 140 jess June 26, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Oh hell to the NO!!

    Alice, cut him!! That’s child abuse.

  77. 141 sytycd June 26, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    kev’s going to pimp slap alice!!!! hahaha

  78. 142 cupy_52040 June 26, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    two things, If zedidias was laughing at himself in a mirror, then I don’t think he’s adult enough to either marry or adopt alice. 2, just because only one hit was shown doesn’t mean more didn’t happen.

  79. 143 Kalheka June 26, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    Kev hitting Alice was inevitable, really. Had to happen sooner or later. They did declare each other mortal enemies earlier. Kev derives pleasure from his animosity towards her.

    I expect things to escalate from here to an outright brawl.

  80. 144 Micsk8111 June 26, 2009 at 9:58 pm

    i hope kev dies…lol im so mean. uk what would be a great story…would if alice gets pregnant with Z’s baby! tht would b one heck of a story but thts not possible..i dont think…. anyways amazing story keep it up. i wish it was longer because they r so dang goood! this website is now in my favorites :) RUN ALICE RUN!

  81. 145 Kelly June 26, 2009 at 10:01 pm

    This is a really good story. Lol i really like it. But im just wondering how you make them homeless… i mean no money i get that part but do you give them a lot instead of a house? and did you buy the park benches or is that some place else?

  82. 147 Victoria Rose June 26, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    A lot of commenters here are wondering when Social Services will be coming by. What they don’t seem to realize is that, unless it’s changed from earlier incarnations of the game, when the Social Worker comes, the kid vanishes, never to be seen again. I for one would hate to lose Alice. I want to see what becomes of her.

    • 148 katierose June 26, 2009 at 11:44 pm

      i know that in the sims2 u can have a diffrent family adopt kids that get taken by the Social Worker
      but i dont know a bout sims 3

  83. 149 lorinlish June 26, 2009 at 10:42 pm

    When Sims slap each other in any version of the game, it’s done in a very comic way. They slap their victims multiple times on both cheeks, like in the 3 Stooges, and then you see little stars floating around the Sim who got slapped and hear tweety bird noises. The victim of the slapping sort of “shakes it off” in the end.

    I’m pointing this out because I want to comment on how much I love Robin’s style. She captures just the right frame of the animation…right as Kev’s hand meet’s Alice’s face, and the look of fear and bewilderment in her expression is heart rendering.

    Very nicely done.

  84. 150 leechbites June 26, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    oh my god!!!!!!!!!!
    someone needs to help her.
    Z needs to be friendlier with Alice. that way, when she grows up they can fall in love and get married leaving poor bastard kev behind. what a good ending=]

  85. 151 katierose June 26, 2009 at 11:39 pm

    awwwwwwwwwww i love this story kev cant help the way he is maby he has mentle illness but still that no reason to hit ur kid
    Alice needs a boyfriend so she can move out

  86. 152 Jesca Aeon June 27, 2009 at 12:16 am

    I sorta want to buy the game now! Damnit! I’ve been resisting!

  87. 153 Adventurous Putty June 27, 2009 at 12:40 am

    *gasp!*

  88. 154 nikki June 27, 2009 at 12:48 am

    OMG!!! Alice is like now a victim of child abuse… I would call the police if I were her! Oh and I feel so sorry for Michael Jackson’s fam… RIP Michael Jackson.

    • 155 Kalheka June 27, 2009 at 3:59 am

      Like now? What story have you been reading? Kev has been mentally & emotionally abusing her throughout the story. Which in many ways is much worse.

  89. 156 Evan June 27, 2009 at 1:19 am

    Alice gotta get a job, (better one) buy a stove some furniture and kill that mother F*****, and a fridge

  90. 157 Mellectic June 27, 2009 at 2:00 am

    I wish Alice knew how many people out here cared for her. ;)

  91. 158 Scenter101 June 27, 2009 at 2:22 am

    Why is every one so mad whan this happen daily with REAL children? If You are so fired up then why don` t you stop child abuse.

  92. 159 OneHappyAtheist June 27, 2009 at 2:48 am

    *sigh* That’s sad. I agree that Kev’s just as much a victim as Alice is–he’s not in control of himself, remember, he’s insane.

    *another sigh* My Windows is broke until late tonight or tomorrow morning (when my husband can do a re-install), so I’m stuck with Linux… and am Sims deprived. (Since late Wednesday night. *sob*)

    Can’t wait for the next installment! I need my Sims fix! *laugh*

  93. 160 Brytni June 27, 2009 at 2:50 am

    oh my god this is such a good story! i didnt know you could be THIS creative with the sims 3 (i dont own it yet.) this definately makes me want to get it more. great job at getting people hooked. (also the story is amazing but it makes me sad)

  94. 161 milly June 27, 2009 at 3:02 am

    O M G

    WHAT HAS HE DONE!!!!!!!!!

    ALICE NEEDS TO TELL SOMEONE AND GET HELP AND SO DOES HE!!!!!!!!!!

    POOR ALICE :(

  95. 162 Harmony June 27, 2009 at 3:28 am

    Since it is the sims game, I’m hoping she is able to kick his ass and beat him in a fight.

    Then become rich and successful and keep him in a dungeon for routine torture…. but allow him to be happy enough for a short while to prolong his life in order to be able to torture him some more – wouldn’t want him to die too soon. (Do they have life extension elixir in Sims 3?)

    I hate Kev! I don’t feel sorry for him in the least.

  96. 163 Chelsea June 27, 2009 at 3:42 am

    Taking your pain out on a child is not a good thing call social services!!

  97. 164 fastolaf June 27, 2009 at 3:56 am

    theyre homeless how will they call anyone

  98. 165 Dawn Skye June 27, 2009 at 4:02 am

    A lot of ppl r saying dont call the Social Serveses cuz he only hit her once..u dont know that! he could have hit her more!

    FLEE ALICE FLEE!

  99. 166 Meagan June 27, 2009 at 4:15 am

    omfg kev you a****** you need to rott in hell you mother f***** kev you b@$T@RD die die die KEV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Robin KKIILL KEV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  100. 167 Celara June 27, 2009 at 4:40 am

    Kev is inappropriate, insane, and doesn’t like kids. It unfortunately isn’t surprising that he is about to hit Alice. The surprising part is with all his issues that he hasn’t hit her sooner. Up until this moment, he’s been able to keep himself in check and has only threatened violence.

    Of course, from a psychological point of view, Alice is the focal point of Kev’s rage about his recent rejection. He can’t lash out at the old lady, so he’s transferring all his pent up emotions onto the most available target, which in this case is poor Alice. Had Alice not been home, Kev would have likely kicked over the garbage can or trashed the park (can you really trash a park that is already kind of trashy though?).

    I know that social services will step in for neglect from past versions of the Sims, but for abuse? I’d like to see it, but I have a feeling that it won’t happen. Alice may fight back though (we’ve seen her stand up to her father before). She may be good, but she’s not a pushover.

    I really feel that Alice will move out as soon as she grows up. I think she’d rather roam the streets than to put up with Kev at this point.

  101. 168 Lexa June 27, 2009 at 4:42 am

    I had an insane sim, but it actually had perks, like the conversations she could have with herself, so I’m going to assume the bad tempered ness is what made him do that. :(

  102. 169 Weetzie June 27, 2009 at 5:07 am

    Ugh, I need more! Is it possible for you to update more often than once a day, or am I being greedy? Probably the latter.

    And Z and Alice so need to hook up. After she comes of age, of course.

  103. 170 Jacc June 27, 2009 at 6:38 am

    he slapped alice! ;~;

  104. 171 Setari June 27, 2009 at 7:17 am

    OH SHAZ.

    Kev… you dummy!

    I hope Alice does something… like fight back! Kev’s gonna get a butt-whoopin.

  105. 172 nicino June 27, 2009 at 7:31 am

    No Alice doesnt need to hook up with Z he will die alot sooner then she will and she doesnt need to go though more crap in her life.

  106. 173 Christine June 27, 2009 at 8:21 am

    oh no he di’nt

  107. 174 Christine June 27, 2009 at 8:22 am

    this is quite entertaining. there is no reason for him to hit her, but he does anyway. oh my.

  108. 176 Mark June 29, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    Excellent screenshot, but I doubt he really gave her a backhand across her chops! Sure looks it tho!!

  109. 177 thebeginningandend July 17, 2009 at 10:38 am

    KEV NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :|

  110. 178 Sebastian July 20, 2009 at 3:10 am

    Wtf! That bastard! You don’t punch women och children, she’s both! I hope he gets run over by the buss or something…

  111. 179 Raine July 21, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    I’m beginning to wonder why the social worker didn’t come when she was a child.

  112. 180 Me March 19, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    OMG the face of Alice in teh 2nd Picture…

    so sad…

  113. 181 jemima September 1, 2011 at 6:45 am

    Poor Alice. Poor, poor, Alice. I have just discovered this and it’s brilliant.
