Joan Danvers' College Years
Yet another story of SSU
In our story so far, Joan Danvers left Rooms
to Let for SSU, eager to escape the gross smooching behaviors of
the local grownups.
arrival she found herself pulled in certain smooching-related directions herself.
We cover the rest of her college career with just a few dozen
pictures from her photo album.
Dorm room improvements
Still Gina's old room, with better walls
and more decorations. The
poster over the bed is I think Urd, from "Ah, My Goddess".
The Study Group
"On the other hand, modern pollution-control laws..."
Jamming with friends at the Lounge
Just like Gina, she found that her fellow students don't tip well.
Joan and her Dad have always been very fond of each other.
Sister Jane and friend Hermes.
This is of course while Hermes was still a teenager, before he arrived at college himself.
Yet more visitors!
Hey, how can they talk about rain? They've
never seen rain. (Mad Scientist Jean is Joan's mom, of course,
and Brandi's the landlady of Rooms to Let, and a good friend. Brandi liked the
dorm atmosphere so much that I could swear I saw her there the next day sometime
chatting with dormies; dunno where she slept.)
At the easel.
Gina started a similar picture, after
the one of Taylor playing chess, but she never finished it.
It's silly that one Sim can't finish a picture started by
A perfect likeness.
I don't remember her name at the
A quiet conversation.
Once again the dormies get to snicker about
the dresser and desk that had to be moved into the hall to make room
for the double bed.
Between the sheets.
She got lots of romantic Wants about
Damion for the entire rest of her college career.
A loving gaze.
Kinda scary, actually. Maybe he's
jealous that she's dreaming about Hermes. (Poster from the Sim Republic.)
A friendly game of chess
"My God, Joan, he's naked!" / "Hush, Damion, I'm concentrating here."
Inducted into the Landgrabb Society!
I forget who her three member friends were.
(Wall art from Simsational Sandy's.)
A friendly place to hang out.
Playing for the crowd.
And, of course, geeking out.
Damion was never far from her thoughts;
or, apparently, vice-versa. (Wall art from I forget.)
A warm welcome
Right out in public, too; how far she's come,
our little Joan.
A little unnerving, that look.
Impressing a Professor
She's so far from the quiet solitary nerd-type
that I once imagined her; odd how characters do that.
This is, of course, the house that
Gina Raptor originally rented,
and then passed along to Taylor, who passed it to Candice, who here
passes it to Joan. More on that party, and the rest of Candice's
college career, here.
Alone after the party
But not alone for long!
The advantages of having your own place
How daring! (A modification of the Anarchy Undies,
from Sexpot Sims)
More strange visitors!
They weren't always kissing,
but the pictures look funnier that way.
Joan's the first Sim that's gone to the
SSU Library, so I hadn't noticed how dull and empty it was.
These pictures are after I gussied it up some.
More serious scholarship
Group reseach in the library
The ideal nerd lunch
I had Joan grill herself a hotdog on
the grill behind the library, and for some reason she came inside and
upstairs to eat among the stacks.
Off to the last senior year final!
She moved into the house at the end
of her Junior year, so she didn't live there all that long.
Returning in triumph
Needless to say, she graduated with
a four-oh, summa cum laude, etc.
Passing the house along
I wasn't really all that fond of Damion,
but Joan insisted. Turns out he's a lazy sloppy Romance Sim; ouch!
We'll see if Joan continues her fascination with him into adulthood.
"Drop and give me twenty!"
"Did you hear something, darling?"
Guests arrive for the graduation party
I should really use that cheat to allow more
than two guests at a party. Just two does make the party eaiser to run, but if
they both happen to leave it's an automatic Disaster...
In cap and gown, yet.
"Does this suit make me look pregnant?"
The heir is left to clean up
Back at good old Rooms to Let
Will she still be welcome?
"Look how well you turned out!"
No worries on that score.
And that's it (whew!).
Later: Joan and Peran, Damion and half the faculty, etc, etc...
