Love

As the dawn approaches, Kev takes a nap by the Grisby family pool to prepare for the day, before heading off to find his new obsession again.

He meets Yvette in the front garden as she heads to pick up the morning paper.

After their deep conversations the night before, Yvette is much more receptive to Kev, and even responds to some of his flirts.

It’s at this point that Yvette’s husband and daughter come outside to see what’s going on.

In a surprising act of boldness, Kev asks Yvette to leave her husband and be with him instead.

Even more surprisingly, she agrees.

Next: Violence

    O M G

    That’s all I have to say.😛

  2. 5 Amy B June 20, 2009 at 9:26 am

    Yikes! What is she thinking?!

  3. 10 Mattdammit June 20, 2009 at 9:33 am

    I see why she left her husband, look at him thinking about money!
    Though not sure whats worse a gold digging husband or, Kev…

  4. 11 kerupuk June 20, 2009 at 9:44 am

    to Robin:
    did you make Kev do it, or did he do it automatically?

    • 12 clorex June 20, 2009 at 10:08 am

      I’d like to know too.

      I’m also surprised that she so willingly agreed to break up with her husband. Especially since she and Kev had only met a day before.

      • 13 Shelly June 20, 2009 at 8:17 pm

        it seems this person’s way of playing is through letting the sims interact on their own. so i wouldnt be surprised if they did it on their own

      • 14 Veedimples June 22, 2009 at 12:29 am

        It’s just a game hon. take it easy there life isn’t as long as ours !!!!!!!

  5. 15 Rockin_Munki June 20, 2009 at 9:45 am

    What’s gonna happen next, will Yvette join them in their houseless plot of land?

  6. 20 knitpicky June 20, 2009 at 9:46 am

    Maybe the now ex husband was thinking about money because he’s concerned for his ex wife’s wellfare. Kev is homeless and broke.😄
    Or maybe he is pissed cause she’ll prolly take half his wealth! =O

  7. 22 Nicki June 20, 2009 at 9:54 am

    What skill point is Kev gaining by kissing her, exactly?

  8. 26 Louse June 20, 2009 at 9:59 am

    OH..MY..GOD.

    This could be made into a tv series😀

    • 27 Ray June 20, 2009 at 9:16 pm

      More like, this SHOULD be made into a TV series.

      That’s kind of sweet, but… Icky, scince she’s like, ancient. O.o

      • 28 S-Way June 20, 2009 at 11:31 pm

        Kev is abusive, homeless, and mentally ill, but YVETTE is the icky one because she’s old? Man oh man.

      • 29 HCoco January 5, 2010 at 10:00 pm

        What the hell? I agree with S-Way, Kev’s the icky one. I hate the way society sees people/things. An old woman is more gross than a smelly abusive homeless man because she’s well…old.

        Geeze that is beyond rediculous!

  9. 30 Kansine June 20, 2009 at 9:59 am

    Now things are getting REALLY intresting😀 That’s definitely something I couldn’t expect to happen!

  10. 32 citizen June 20, 2009 at 10:15 am

    Am I correct in that Yvette, or any other character, will not “know” that Alice and Kev’s “house” is a run-down park? The park is just a skin on a house. Sure, they have no money, but they have a house (of sorts) to come home to, so are they really homeless?

    • 33 Kris June 20, 2009 at 7:13 pm

      Well, strictly technically, the park is a “skin” on a house. But since it’s a house with no roof, no bathroms, no kitchen and no furniture, for all intents and purposes it’s just as bad as like living in a park.

  11. 34 myranda June 20, 2009 at 10:15 am

    LMFAO.. AMAZING. maybe he will be a kinder kev? lol

    • 35 Shelly June 20, 2009 at 8:23 pm

      what i imagine happening is he will marry her, then bam he will turn insane and psycho and be very mean to her. this is a story of a homeless family with the worst traits, i can’t imagine this relationship lasting long😛

  12. 36 traumatron June 20, 2009 at 10:23 am

    I’m truly stunned. Rags to riches indeed!

  13. 37 Don June 20, 2009 at 10:25 am

    Now the hilarious part, I think, is that his life time asperation is to be a heart breaker. This does not bode well for yvette, as he will need to pull off 9 more little miracles to achieve this.

    Love this series by the way, Written with amazing style and the screenshots compliment everything perfectly.

  14. 40 Serenity June 20, 2009 at 10:27 am

    I am dying to know what happens next. I really never saw anyone falling in love with Kev. Is Yvette psychotic or something? I mean Kev is just a jerk and has nothing to offer also he just wants to break people’s hearts so he is gonna stomp on her if he sticks to his life aspiration. This really threw me for a loop…never…in a million years saw this coming.

  15. 41 Haplo June 20, 2009 at 10:30 am

    …Huh.

    That sure was surprising. Poor husband.

    “Okay, I’m leaving you for some homeless bloke I met yesterday!”
    “But we’ve been married for years! We have a *child*!”
    “But you just aren’t the man Kev is!”

  16. 42 Unreality June 20, 2009 at 10:38 am

    sigh, say goodbye to reality. This story has became much less real. Expect less compassion to Alice and Kev

    • 43 Paige June 20, 2009 at 3:12 pm

      actually. this probably more like reality. people do this all the time.
      Actually, i think that Kev will wait till his new girlfriend dies. that way he get money and he ends up not hurting her…. thats what i think….

    • 46 zeh June 20, 2009 at 3:58 pm

      I don’t think this was ever meant to be a recreation of reality – it’s a game. Plus, people do shit that have absolutely no rationality to it all the time, specially in regards to the partners they chose.

    • 48 This is Reality... June 20, 2009 at 6:14 pm

      Laugh.. My wife left me and the kids for a homeless psychopath.. So why wouldn’t yvette😉

    • 50 Page June 20, 2009 at 8:38 pm

      I worked with a girl who did this. She had a relationship, stable job, a house. She met someone at my job who was homeless and gave up everything for him. Her life pretty much fell apart, she lost her job, her mom threw her out and now the both of them live by the downtown library x.x

    • 51 ctlynnie June 20, 2009 at 10:05 pm

      Um…but people actually DO this stuff in real life. I wouldn’t go around claiming to know how common/uncommon it is, but people HAVE given up very stable professions and families for someone/something else.

      Just because it hasn’t happened to you or anyone you know doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist/happen.

  17. 52 jakehh June 20, 2009 at 10:39 am

    Wow! That’s a shocker!

  18. 53 Jazmeister June 20, 2009 at 10:41 am

    This is why people watch soap operas, isn’t it? Great stuff!

  19. 54 Jackrabbit June 20, 2009 at 10:47 am

    HOLY CRAP. ON A STICK OF SOME KIND.

  20. 55 Requienna June 20, 2009 at 10:57 am

    OMG and they’re going to have big-eared children…

  21. 56 TinyPirate June 20, 2009 at 11:17 am

    My guess is he gets to move in and kick the husband out! Kev and Alice are going to gold-dig their way to a house!😀

  22. 58 Charlotte June 20, 2009 at 11:21 am

    I’m still waiting to see if Alice and Zed fall in love!
    They are THE perfect couple!

    • 59 Jackrabbit June 20, 2009 at 12:10 pm

      She is a teenager. I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. But we can see.

      • 60 HAB June 20, 2009 at 1:45 pm

        She’ll become a young adult in, like, the max of 10 days or something.

      • 61 ATristOfFate June 20, 2009 at 3:47 pm

        Since when was it illegal for two teenagers to fall in love?

      • 62 zayzayem June 20, 2009 at 5:45 pm

        I agree. When we first met Zed, I so thought “Pedo”.
        He’s that older dude who didn’t make it to college, so just hangs out with the senior high school girls, because they’re the only people who think he is cool.

    • 63 Lauren June 20, 2009 at 1:35 pm

      Ah, another romantic– I’ve been thinking the same thing!

      • 64 Paige June 20, 2009 at 3:14 pm

        that was totally the same thing i was thinking! they would be soooo good together

      • 65 mac June 20, 2009 at 4:20 pm

        oh my god that’s what i was thinking! i love how they age so quickly. that way it really doesn’t matter how old the person you want for your sim is – but once i had a teenage sim with a teenage girlfriend, and he turned into a young adult before his girlfriend…they turned into strangers…it was so sad! anyway, things are looking good for alice and kev!

  23. 66 RoseRed June 20, 2009 at 11:35 am

    LOL well, Kev’s made his start on Heartbreaker. But will he introduce Yvette to Alice as “your new mom” or “your new grandma”?

  24. 68 balooneybob June 20, 2009 at 11:35 am

    ZOMG!!!

  25. 69 helena June 20, 2009 at 11:39 am

    haha, this is awesome! keep it up!

  26. 70 Jeest June 20, 2009 at 11:50 am

    Alright Kev!

  27. 71 thumbbook June 20, 2009 at 11:57 am

    What happens if they have a baby? OMG!

  28. 74 mireee June 20, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    This is the first time I’m commenting on this blog… BECAUSE THIS IS BLOODY UNBELIEVABLE!! Didn’t you intervene at all? The Sims 3 surprise me more every day. My kids at the Sims 3 do their homework by their own will, wow.

  29. 76 Marc June 20, 2009 at 12:13 pm

    Awesome stuff, man!

  30. 77 A-Sha June 20, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    I’ve been a silent reader all these times and now I just had to comment!

    O.M.F.G.

    =o And the ex-hub’s thinking about money! “Did I sign the pre-nup!?” xD

    Holy mac and cheese! Very compulsive and unbelievable indeed!

  31. 78 RoyalPeach June 20, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    YAY! homeless love! I still can’t stand Kev though. Homewrecker!

  32. 79 Catherine June 20, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    I believe there is only one acronym suitable here:

    WTF?!

    Hopefully Yvette will be nicer to Alice, and be a better adult figure in her life for the short time she’s there, since (like others) I suspect she won’t last long with Kev.

  33. 80 Robson June 20, 2009 at 12:38 pm

    Hey Robin, just wanted to comment and say how great it is that you’re doing this – I remember trying to do something similar on the Sims 1 where you could get someone to act crazy and homeless by giving them nearly no skill points… but it was nowhere near as fun!

    Question, how are you coping with all the Class-AA bugs that still seem to be in the game, even after it was delayed for four months to fix them?

  34. 82 robodude June 20, 2009 at 12:49 pm

    THAT LADY IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    heh
    they better not have kids… they are gonna be scary looking if they do O_O

  35. 83 racheldells June 20, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    lol maybe they just get each other and she doesnt feel that with her husband

  36. 84 HAB June 20, 2009 at 1:47 pm

    And how does Alex feel about this?

  37. 85 Meluv ur Stories June 20, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    It sux that shes old, cuz they cant hav kids….:*(

    Alrite, Kev!!!! U go man!

  38. 86 Normano June 20, 2009 at 2:16 pm

    Now it’s Alice’s turn!!!

  39. 87 Taupe June 20, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    My bet is that the old woman is simply…well..old and senile.

    Maybe she forgot that Kev is actually not her husband.

  40. 89 Mandy June 20, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LUV THIS!!!!! I CANT WAIT 2 SEE WAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!!!

  41. 90 Mandy June 20, 2009 at 3:04 pm

    I 4got 2 say somethin!!!!! my friend has the sims 3 and everyday in the sims 3 is 1 year!!! so technically they’ve known each other 4 ovr a year!!!! 5 more days till I get sims 3 for myself!!!!!! yay!!!!!

  42. 93 Cheranb June 20, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    This is such an incredible story. I might have to see if I can do something like that in my town. It is very heartrenching especially in this economic time. How did you ever come up with such a great story line?

  43. 94 Lars June 20, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    Oh my, this story keeps going. I don’t know how much of this Robin caused but I like it.🙂 Can’t wait to see how it continues.

  44. 95 SkyWorld June 20, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    Whoa… Yvette obviously just had a fight with her husband (about money, perhaps?). And her daughter, apparently, isn’t very forgiving…

    This should be interesting? Wait ’till she sees where she has to sleep…

  45. 96 Dolphin_girl_24 June 20, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    OMG. I can’t believe it. I thought for sure Alice would find love before Kev. Too bad…..

  46. 97 AndrewBot88 June 20, 2009 at 3:28 pm

    OMFGZORZ! Geez i love this story. I wonder how alice will react😄

  47. 98 Casi Nerina June 20, 2009 at 3:32 pm

    Wow… that’s just … strange…. why why why???

  48. 99 Markus June 20, 2009 at 3:45 pm

    From what I’ve read in the comments and this latest “episode”, it felt like Kev has been a sort of a “cougar hunter” of sorts, if ya know what I mean. There’s a slight shift in the events that will unfold for these characters. Questions do arise: What will Alice think? What will Yvette’s ex and daughter do now? Will Kev and Alice have a better life? How will he break it off with Yvette to fulfill his lifelong goal?

    Interesting stuff as always. Thanks and keep it coming Robyn!

  49. 100 BrianK June 20, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    haha its just WTF in short.

  50. 101 omg lol June 20, 2009 at 4:01 pm

    OMG!!! un bieliveabibble!!!

  51. 102 Keegan June 20, 2009 at 4:01 pm

    Hopefully Yvette will be a good parent to Alice.

  52. 103 mac June 20, 2009 at 4:03 pm

    WOW! that was so unexpected. how perfect! aww!

  53. 104 Nikki June 20, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    Wow didn’t see that coming!! She seems pretty old though so what if she dies suddenly?!

  54. 105 japanimummy June 20, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    I think it’s Yvettes motherly feeling that kicked in. This man obviously needs her,and he wants her…This isn’t that uncommon in real life.

  55. 106 anit1983 June 20, 2009 at 4:32 pm

    OMG, I can’t believe she left her husband for an insane homlessman. This is going to be strange for her, leaving her nice house to sleep on a park bench.

  56. 107 Dawn Skye June 20, 2009 at 4:42 pm

    But how will Kev fulfill the life goal of heartbreaker??????

    I dont care actually- its a story of two lovers from different walks of life, the rich, married woman and the homeless.

    I think maybe her husband was a golddigger…

  57. 108 Kaitlin June 20, 2009 at 4:47 pm

    Normally i just read the stories and don’t comment….BUT THIS IS JUST…UNBIELVEABLE!!!!!! Kev actually found a woman that LIKES him!!!!!!! That’s just something I NEVER would’ve guessed!!!

  58. 109 Platt3r June 20, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    DAY-UM! I didn’t see that coming

  59. 110 Aywren June 20, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    Whoa… now that was completely unexpected!

    Wonder if she might have a means to support a family? No one knows what her skills or job is (if she has one). But considering he’s a heartbreaker… that may not be something to consider at all.:/

  60. 111 Keish. June 20, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    did Kev ask her to marry him? or to just break up with her husband to be his girlfriend? Hmmm…strange…

    Loving the series =P

    I tried this on my own Sims 3. I made Lucy and Seb, they’re also both homeless. Seb spends most of his time at the Cemetery trying to hit it off with ghosts :S and Lucy stays at home and is…well, miserable.

    Can you get a photo album on Sims 3?

  61. 112 soren121 June 20, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    I can see it now.

    ALICE AND KEV: the world’s first homeless drama simulation show, tonight only on ABC!

  62. 113 Rocky Tees June 20, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Someone is a cougar hunter!!

  63. 114 zayzayem June 20, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    Someone forgot to take her sanity medication this morning…

  64. 116 FrequentFlyer June 20, 2009 at 6:03 pm

    What a twist to the story.

  65. 117 Lyra June 20, 2009 at 6:07 pm

    Whoa…I’m not sure whether to say “Aww!” or “GACK!”😄 I get the feeling that woman’s a little senile, but at least Kev found someone who will accept him. ^^

  66. 118 Faith June 20, 2009 at 6:22 pm

    Did you make his flirt with her and did you make him ask her to leave her husband?? No way Kev did that by himself! (Or did he…?)

  67. 119 Sarah June 20, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm…………. creepy.

  68. 120 Jacob June 20, 2009 at 6:46 pm

    Wow, I can’t believe it! Kev found love?? Maybe she has commitment issues and doesn’t think her husband was right. My Sims’s girlfriend had commitment issues and that’s the only reason she broke up with her fiance for mine. Can’t wait to see what happens with this relationship!! And for those of you who were woundering, when you ask a sim to break up with another one, it doesn’t make you his/her girl/boy friend. It just breaks them up if he/she wanted to. Then you can ask to go steady, or be boyfriend and girlfriend. See you guys next “episode”!

  69. 121 Tommymac June 20, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    I think you need to indicate that you intervened here. Sims will NOT ask another sim to move in with them without direct action from the game player.

    You are being disingenuous.

    • 122 Dani June 20, 2009 at 7:56 pm

      But there’s no indication whatsoever that Kev was asked to move in! Where’s your basis for that?

    • 123 kellybelly June 20, 2009 at 8:58 pm

      I dunno… I left one of my Sims alone for two game days and when I returned, three other Sims had moved in. More so, they were pretty much strangers.

    • 124 alora June 21, 2009 at 1:03 am

      ummm.. ya need to chill this guy is doin what he’s supposed to be doin, making a reality a story for people and having fun with his own storyline. you also need to notice that if it werent for the creater alice and kev wouldnt be homeless kev wouldnt know yvette alice wouldnt know zeldias. sooo…no kev probably did not just ask yvette to dump her man and get with him he probably just ask her to be his girlfriend, or the creater probably put what happen in the story in his own words he doesnt need to be perfect with a story. if he was people would be bored and irritated cause alll this story would be is “kev just ate bread and jam now his walking to go pee now hes yelling and alice. i mean really wtf. ? what kind of story would that be. so yes dear people that own the sims like you DO control them and DO make them say things to another sim that usually cant come out alone without help, you should know that by now so dont make the creater seem like he’s not making his story correctly when its his story and his storyline and what he wants to happen in the future. thats his decison. your job is to leave nice comments and be excited for what waits ahead.

      im sorry if i sounded rude or mean but its just a story and he’s just a simple guy wanting to entertain people.

    • 126 Myles June 21, 2009 at 3:56 pm

      Based on the introduction and general storyline, I’m pretty sure she ‘intervenes’ with most of the storyline. And she hasn’t said she doesn’t, so you can’t complain.

  70. 127 OneHappyAtheist June 20, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    Wow. I don’t know whether I’m shocked or not at this new development. Each day since I discovered this blog (haha, two days ago!) I’ve come here to read about Alice and Kev, and the comments, too! I dloaded them and can’t wait to see how they progress.😀

  71. 128 derrek June 20, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    How much of this did you controll?

  72. 129 Loren June 20, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    This whole thing is just so amazing.
    I’m following this like an old woman following All My Children
    xD

  73. 130 Rowena June 20, 2009 at 6:57 pm

    Hahaha! I bet Kev just rips her off😀 He wants her money, he gets a roof over head and than he leaves her😀

  74. 131 Mythos June 20, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Now that’s a twist no one could have seen coming.

  75. 133 jordan June 20, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    OMG! O.O I did not see that comeing

  76. 134 Strawberry June 20, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Wow, was not expecting that one. I can only wait for kev to screw this up.

  77. 135 Heather June 20, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

    PLEASE don’t stop writing, I am logging in daily to read your blog!!!!!!

  78. 136 Tracey June 20, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    Holy hell, I did not see that coming. What an awesome twist, you are a genius.

  79. 137 Omēga June 20, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    What a cliffhanger! We need another chapter!

  80. 138 Adventurous Putty June 20, 2009 at 7:54 pm

    The plot thickens!

  81. 139 Simantha June 20, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    I wonder how Alice will feel about this and how the old woman will respond to Alice.

  82. 142 kris June 20, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Woo Hoo! Go ‘head Kev!! Good for him.

  83. 143 kat June 20, 2009 at 8:50 pm

    Two things:
    Number one: She has a daughter?! How is the daughter going to feel about her mother being a cougar?!
    Number two: LOL I wonder if Alice will like having a new “mother” (grandmother) in their “house” (waterlogged park)

  84. 147 Soul June 20, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Oh dear God. Haha. Well then..I hope she likes being homeless.😄

  85. 148 kat June 20, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    Also, all this did was make her break up with her husband. I know from experience that she still lives with her husband. Awkward huh? Just broke up with him but their still living together.😛

    • 149 Monkey June 21, 2009 at 3:01 am

      That does happen, actually. When my now ex-husband and I separated, he moved in to our guest room for about 6 months. Fortunately, we still got along for the most part so it wasn’t horrific, but it was indeed awkward at many points.

  86. 150 Payton June 20, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    Haha! Yes, hope for not only Kev, but Alice, also! Gosh I can’t wait to see what happens next!

  87. 151 Ryane June 20, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    I actually gasped out loud when I read the twist! Don’t know if this has been asked previously, but how often does Robin play the game?
    I haven’t played Sims for years but this site is making me itch to play all over again🙂

    Oh my gosh!

    Does she know he’s homeless?!

    Can’t wait for the next update, I’m so addicted to this story.

  89. 154 Sims June 20, 2009 at 9:18 pm

    holy crap.
    i sort-of thought this might happen, like when they first met…i thought whatserface was single, but she isn’t…so it just flickered in my mind but i didn’t think much of it and moved on.
    and i do want alice to get with z…..the dude’s name who i can’t remember
    they’d make an adorable couple once shes older
    please keep posting more❤

  90. 155 Setari June 20, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    this is quite the twist!!! I LOL’d so hard!!! i love this story!!

  91. 156 Setari June 20, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    oh. sorry about the double post, but maybe after each one you could say if the thing was controlled by you, partly controlled, or no interference whatsoever from you. That would make this story even better. (of course you always say when you DO take control, but just saying ^.^)

  92. 157 Ziggy G June 20, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    Maybe they just have similar character traits. I wouldn’t be surpirised if Yvette was designed as a crazy old woman. You know, like the old lady in your nabourhood that’s (in)famous for crapping on a policeman… What? you don’t have that?

  93. 158 Ceissa Desiste June 20, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    Wow! This story is getting better by the day. I sure hope Yvette knows what she is in for with Kev.

  94. 159 Cilla June 20, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    I tried doing the whole “homeless sim” thing and I just couldn’t bring myself to it. I built them a house.

  95. 160 laila June 20, 2009 at 10:45 pm

    WHAT THE EFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and why does kev have a ring on his left ring finger?

    • 161 OneHappyAtheist June 21, 2009 at 7:28 am

      Sometimes they just have rings. I tend to give rings to my Sims, whether or not they have a spouse, or even a housemate.

  96. 162 James Page June 20, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Wow!
    I just read them all!!
    Great story.. I just bought the Sims 3 last week and I’ve been loving it..
    Great game!
    Great Bog!

  97. 163 Akaso June 20, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    OH GOD WHAT JUST HAPPENED

  98. 164 some random guy June 20, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    I’ve been following the blog for a while, and today I saw an article about it on yahoo. That’s how powerful this blog is.

  99. 165 Catherine June 20, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    Alice and Kev… and Yvette?! Wow. That’s all I can say is, wow. I thought Alice would find love before Kev too.

  100. 166 Katie June 20, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    I just finished reading all your posts. I must say you did a wonderful job of really bringing Alice and Kev to life. I’m jealous of your simple yet brilliant writing, it’s such a difference from my snarky commentary on my sims lives. I will be waiting impatiently for the next update!

  101. 167 r June 20, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    wow… poor Yvette…

  102. 168 Ed June 20, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    I really love reading this story. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

  103. 169 Franica June 20, 2009 at 11:53 pm

    Kev is a smart man. Those of us who’ve played TS3 knows that when he asks her to move in with him they can choose to kick her ex husband and daughter out and take over possession of the house and money. Very smart and sneaky Kev.

  104. 170 Carolyn June 21, 2009 at 12:10 am

    Great story, very moving as well. You’ve made these characters seem so realistic in their hopes and dreams and their trials & tribulations. I really felt for the poor girl. With a father like that, her chances for living a happy life are greatly diminished. What is more astonishing is the fact that you are letting them make almost all of the decisions & choices themselves with little or no intervention from you. I don’t don’t know how EA did it, but they’ve made these Sims into 3 dimensional characters, it’s as if they were almost “alive” or had some form or AI going on.
    Great game, fantastic story so far, I can’t wait to find out what happens to these Sims next. Thank you for allowing us to read the story of their lives so far.

  105. 171 Brittany June 21, 2009 at 12:11 am

    Oh my god! I have this game, but I can’t play it yet since I don’t have the computer to, but…

    This is so amazing. I can’t believe how good this is!

  106. 172 Trace June 21, 2009 at 12:56 am

    yeah, possibly Alice will have the new mother

  107. 173 jess1 June 21, 2009 at 1:55 am

    hahahah
    but you know they can shower at the 28 hr gym right??

  108. 174 Kat June 21, 2009 at 1:58 am

    WOW did not see that coming I did however think that Alice and the z guy whose name escapes me will get together I mean they are sooo perfect for each other. Also i would just like to say that your blogs are amazing they really take a hold of your heart and make you want to think twice about the guy on the side of the street asking for money. You are a beautiful writer. I hope this gets to be a t.v show someday.

  109. 175 Brenda June 21, 2009 at 2:40 am

    O M G

    She actually said yes… that’s amazing.

    I wonder what’s gonna happen now

  110. 176 Carla June 21, 2009 at 2:54 am

    Wow, Yvette is crazy! I wonder what she sees in Kev that I don’t.

  111. 177 ♥RAWR♥ June 21, 2009 at 2:57 am

    omg amazing wonderful story

  112. 178 Whitney June 21, 2009 at 3:49 am

    LOL
    How did that happen?!?!?

  113. 179 Mr. Redgrave June 21, 2009 at 4:15 am

    Maybe they’re both insane?
    Come to think of it, I think old women have a soft spot for the homeless.
    I recall a movie where this old woman hit an old homeless guy with her car, and she ended up letting him live with her and they fell in love and all that good stuff. The lady in the movie was married too if I recall correctly.
    Granted, it was just a movie, but the similarities are there.

  114. 180 thaaeroprincess June 21, 2009 at 4:20 am

    WTF!!!! She left her hubby to be with homeless, mean, inconsiderate Kev!?!?!? Love really must be blind…

  115. 181 E. Weiskott June 21, 2009 at 4:59 am

    I can’t believe this! Go Kev!

  116. 182 Addicted to Sims 3 June 21, 2009 at 5:08 am

    Wow!!! I’ve been a daily reader, but this is the first time I comment….. I just have to say WTF?!? Did not see that one coming… I find it so funny how all of us read this blog and comment on it as if they were real people on a reality show lol….I too catch myself being shocked and amazed at what these characters have done..I have to say this blog is amazing…keep blogging and hopefully when they age out; continue blogging about NEW Sims 3 stories… I will definitely continue reading and I believe so will others….GREAT JOB!!!

  117. 184 nadie June 21, 2009 at 6:29 am

  118. 187 Eric Richardville June 21, 2009 at 7:03 am

  130. 200 Oppal July 9, 2009 at 5:57 am

    the daughters being all anti-kev but the ex is all ‘o no! my moneys gone!’

  131. 201 Raine July 21, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    Uh. Yvette, is something wrong with your brain? You’ve only known him for a day, and your husband for much longer. Old is better than the new!
    And he will probably dump you for someone else in the end.

  132. 202 Willem van der Horst August 1, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    Wow. Just amazing, devouring the blog and the story. Loving the comments and how much everyone is getting into it. I think I’m going finish reading and walk out to buy The Sims 3😀

  133. 204 Tia Maria October 2, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    WHATTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!! That’s insane! I love this story! I wonder if she’s going to move into the dump with him.

  134. 205 EpicODD1Out October 3, 2009 at 9:43 pm

  138. 210 Ben Burkhardt June 15, 2011 at 6:18 am

    It looks like she isn’t getting any of Mr. Grisby’s inheritance in his Will anymore… Look at his speech bubble. And her daughter now HATES her…
