Hello again. Last time Seb met Stella (rhiannon_alexis) plus a number of other enticing ladies. In the end, Seb proposed to Stella. How will she answer?



Of course she said yes, I mean, have you seen Seb?



































Rue and Seb share two bolts of chemistry, and a crush status. I don't even want to know.

















































Ouch!















WAIT



Daisy X, after Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby.

The woman Gatsby loves. As a young woman in Louisville before the war, Daisy was courted by a number of officers, including Gatsby. She fell in love with Gatsby and promised to wait for him. However, Daisy harbors a deep need to be loved, and when a wealthy, powerful young man named Tom Buchanan asked her to marry him, Daisy decided not to wait for Gatsby after all. Now a beautiful socialite, Daisy lives with Tom across from Gatsby in the fashionable East Egg district of Long Island. She is sardonic and somewhat cynical, and behaves superficially to mask her pain at her husband’s constant infidelity.





Jay X, after Jay Gatsby, another character from The Great Gatsby.

The title character and protagonist of the novel, Gatsby is a fabulously wealthy young man living in a Gothic mansion in West Egg. He is famous for the lavish parties he throws every Saturday night, but no one knows where he comes from, what he does, or how he made his fortune. As the novel progresses, the main character learns that Gatsby was born James Gatz on a farm in North Dakota; working for a millionaire made him dedicate his life to the achievement of wealth. When he met Daisy while training to be an officer in Louisville, he fell in love with her. Nick also learns that Gatsby made his fortune through criminal activity, as he was willing to do anything to gain the social position he thought necessary to win Daisy. The main character views Gatsby as a deeply flawed man, dishonest and vulgar, whose extraordinary optimism and power to transform his dreams into reality make him "great" nonetheless.













This look sort of reminds me of Joanna from The Stepford Wives (circa 1975, not the new one. Ew.)

















See ya later!
There are too many damn sims in this update, or at least that's how it feels:

I chopped up and stole the character descriptions for The Great Gatsby from Spark Notes.

CAT SKINNED BABY.

I'm really glad you changed Stella's hair. Every time I saw her I had a "RORY....wait. Not Rory. WHAT SHENANIGANS ARE THESE??" moment. XD

The Great Gatsby is one of the few novels that I was forced to read that I actually enjoyed :3

Orange is one of my favorite colours, and I never overlook the opportunity to use it!

Thank you! I'm glad you think so :3

YAY she said yes!!! Looks like Seb took good care of Stella during her pregnancy... the twin are adorable and I love the names (reminds me of my Senior Lit Seminar, lol). Also, I love Stella's makeover.

Absolutely, he's a big 'ol softie who was raised by his mommy.

Thanks! The minute you mentioned lit, I knew what names I would use :3 I love The Great Gatsby.

Hooray! Wedding in the desert sunset AND cat babies(with pinch-able cheeks)! I love how you capture their day to day interactions with one another. Seb just seems like such a sweetie. <3 <3 <3
Also, I love Stella's pose when she's aging up Daisy. There's some kind of crazy mother daughter Tai Chi going on there.

I couldn't have planned it better had it been my own wedding.

That picture made me laugh! I had to get it once I paused and saw what she was up to, I just could not get over it! XD

Such a great update! I love Stella's makeover. I totally didn't recognize that it was her at first, but she's just as gorgeous as before! The twins are so cute, although we all knew they would be! Where'd the cat skintone come from? All the kids in my sims families tend to have the same skintone. So I love the diversity in your family already!

Genetics are a beautiful thing! :D

I didn't look to see where the cat skins are geneticized, but it looks like it's about in the same spectrum between Stella and Seb's skintones, otherwise she wouldn't have gotten It :p

Aha, that would explain where the cat skin came from! Well I say hurray, because she's an adorable little kitten. :)

A cat-baby! Sooo cute. How is Seb staying faithful with all these gorgeous ladies around him?! Your game is so full of pretty girls.

Btw, is Seb yours or was he chosen by a founder poll? I looked around but didn't see any info on that.

He stays faithful because all of the women are faithful. A good chunk of those ladies are married or in relationships XD

Seb is my own creation. You wouldn't find any info because I discussed it on my simblr that I deleted out of irritation.
