slide 1:

Hello and welcome to the longest college chapter in the history of Already in Progress Of course the college chapter for Ruth’s unOfficially Wacky Boolprop Challenge was significantly larger but you already knew that. And if you didn’t you should run off and read the whole story right away even if it doesn’t have very much Sally in it. /shameless self- promotion This story has plenty of Sally. As a consequence I’m having a little trouble figuring out how to bridge the sections of this chapter so I hope it isn’t too confusing for you. Ready Then let’s get on with our story which is Already in Progress…

slide 2:

Amy Grew Up into almost the same ensemble she picked when transitioning to Teen. I wonder if she’s trying to tell me something… I really hope not since I don’t think this look suits her at all.

slide 3:

Sally Grew Up into a much better outfit. In fact the only problem that I have with it is that the skirt is quilted. I may not have a very good sense of style but I’m pretty sure that ruffly top + quilted skirt fashion fail.

slide 4:

Sally and Amy headed down to Around Again the only clothing store on campus to buy new clothes. They were promptly distracted by the thought of a pillow fight. I am so sick of this interaction I’m seriously considering installing noroadpillows which is part of the Director’s Cut and which stops Sims autonomously having pillow fights unless 1 they are inside and 2 they are reasonably near a source for pillows.

slide 5:

Once back in the dorm the girls got distracted from the simple task of changing their clothes. Amy was sidetracked by the stereo and Sally saw Someone New to Meet. The young lady in question is Allyn Anderson and I personally think that she looks a bit like Professor Butters but that could just be me. She’s no relation at any rate.

slide 6:

Eventually I got clothing changed and makeovers finished. Sally was thrilled with her new look which was almost exactly the same as her old look and Amy found hers mildly amusing. huffily Well pardon me very much I’m sure. It still looks better than what you picked out. And now that you have the basic background for Freshman year let’s ask Sally how it’s going.

slide 7:

How’s it going Sally SALLY V.O.: Oh it’s going great I’ve been meeting all kinds of great people That’s good. SALLY V.O.: Yeah especially for me because I’m Popularity. Amy’s Pop too but she really doesn’t seem to be trying too hard. I mean she spends a lot of time burning Ramen. Really SALLY V.O.: Okay it was only the once. And it didn’t set the smoke detector off or anything. But you think she’d want to meet people. Maybe she was hungry.

slide 8:

SALLY V.O.: If you’re hungry you can meet people in the dining hall. That’s where I met Troy. Troy SALLY V.O.: Troy Langerak. He hasn’t got a major yet. I don’t think anybody here does. Anyway he knows a lot of interesting trivia. Did you know that Dolley Madison was several inches taller than James Madison She was somewhere in between the same height and a bit taller yup. James Madison President of the United States from 1809-1817. Dolley Madison was his wife. Apparently reports of his height varied depending on how much the speaker liked him and she routinely wore very tall hats. Both these things confuse the issue.

slide 9:

SALLY V.O.: I actually meet a lot of people when I’m dancing too. Dancing is a popular activity. SALLY V.O.: It sure is So that’s Colby with the hair Jim with the blue shirt and Lilly. Lilly Hiatt SALLY V.O.: Yes. Do you know her I know of her. We haven’t been introduced. SALLY V.O.: Oh. Well I’d introduce you but we don’t really hang out much. She’s ah kind of prickly. But I’m good friends with Colby now.

slide 10:

That’s nice. SALLY V.O.: Yeah. But he cheats. He cheats SALLY V.O.: When we’re playing. Like the other day we were having a pillow fight and this naked guy comes in and starts doing this dance and – I get the picture. SALLY V.O.: Well while I’m staring at him Colby up and whacks me in the face with a pillow See He cheats

slide 11:

How about Amy Is she making any friends SALLY V.O.: Yeah one or two. But you know what’s weird What SALLY V.O.: Even though Amy is Popularity just like me she likes to earn skill points and write term papers. puzzled It’s almost like she has a secondary of Knowledge. But she can’t. I don’t have Free Time. SALLY V.O.: I know. That’s what’s weird.

slide 12:

SALLY V.O.: But she is making friends too. And I particularly approve of one of them. You do SALLY V.O.: Uh-huh. Jess McMillan. I think they’d make a really cute couple. That’s for them to decide isn’t it SALLY V.O. cheerfully disregarding that comment: I was right about Oliver and Oakapple wasn’t I

slide 13:

And because I can’t figure out how to transition here’s a picture of Sally and Amy having a pillow fight. It’s sort of the break point between Sally telling us about Freshman year and Sally telling us about Sophomore year. I apologize for the awkwardness.

slide 14:

The first thing Amy does after she wakes up every morning is Make Bed. She usually then goes on to use the toilet and take a shower without any direction from me. Occasionally she’ll get as far as breakfast all on her own.

slide 15:

This is the first thing Sally does every morning: dance to the stereo. If the stereo isn’t on she’ll turn it on just so she can dance. She’ll spin into her clothes before class but is otherwise perfectly happy to walk around in her nightie. And yes that is still a patch of sky. As it turns out I can’t place my shiny new custom content ceiling tiles over stairs. I hope you are not too angry with me.

slide 16:

Sally and Amy continue making friends each in her own way. Amy prefers to chat or play chess with new people Sally likes to dance. Both Popularity Sims but quite different in their approach. SALLY V.O.: If we were all the same the world would be a very boring place. Hey can I ask you something Sure. SALLY V.O.: Why is there mistletoe hanging in the hallway I’ve been meaning to ask since we moved in. Oh that. I’ve heard that if a Sim stands under it then all kinds of fun romantic complications ensue. I don’t have ACR and I don’t want it but I wouldn’t mind if y’all showed a little more autonomy about who you like every once in a while.

slide 17:

SALLY V.O.: So if I just stand here and look pretty someone will come over and give me a kiss That’s the theory anyway. crickets chirping SALLY V.O.: This is kind of boring. I’ll try again later okay Sure. Despite repeated attempts over the course of Amy and Sally’s college career using many combinations of variables standing under the mistletoe never produced any results at all. I left it there anyway because You Never Know.

slide 18:

SALLY V.O.: Ooooh but I have News Okay. What is it SALLY V.O.: Amy likes Jess She spends a lot of time talking with him and he’s the first boy she’s wanted to be friends with. I actually think she was going to say something the other day but she got distracted. Distracted SALLY V.O.: Distracted. Um is that guy… normal Most people don’t run around naked but I think he’s harmless.

slide 19:

SALLY V.O.: And now Amy’s gone and become Knowledge I don’t think she’ll ever say anything. warily What are you going to do SALLY V.O.: Who says I’m going to do anything It’s true that Amy became Knowledge briefly since she was always rolling the Want to do homework or gain a skill point or something. But then she only rolled Knowledge-type Wants and was really quite boring so I changed her back. I find her much more fun to play when she’s Popularity with a self-assigned secondary of Knowledge. But I did change her hairstyle to something more flattering.

slide 20:

SALLY V.O.: Oh it looks a lot better. She got lots of compliments from people who never even talked to her before. Which is why I thought my little plan might work. Wait a minute – what little plan

slide 21:

SALLY V.O.: Oh nothing much. I just talked to Jess is all. Talked to him about what SALLY V.O.: Oh you know. This and that. People who like other people and what the first people might want to do about that. You didn’t.

slide 22:

SALLY V.O.: I did. And it worked out too. He kissed her hand and everything. It was really romantic. You need to stop interfering in other people’s relationships. SALLY V.O.: Nonsense I like making people happy. How can you give relationship advice when you haven’t been in a relationship yourself

slide 23:

SALLY V.O.: But I could be. I could be any time I wanted. Colby’s already told me that he wants to kiss me. And Troy’s said he’s afraid of me dying. Isn’t that sweet It is. Do you have a preference SALLY V.O.: Well I – OW What What happened

slide 24:

SALLY: Yusun How dare you hit me like that But you like pillow fighting SALLY: Not with cow mascots In their underwear Without any warning That was completely uncalled for Look it was supposed to be fun. Take a chill pill huh SALLY: Take a chill pill Why you – you – I’m going to report you to the Dean of Students you see if I don’t

slide 25:

Did you know that one Sim can invite another to play in the leaves Neither did I but they can. This marks the end of Sophomore Year by the way.

slide 26:

Sally What are you doing SALLY: Playing in the leaves. Do you need to get your eyes checked again Yes but I can’t until my insurance ticks over in January. But that’s not the point Why aren’t you in class

slide 27:

SALLY: How am I supposed to go to class when someone’s sitting in my way You could leave from the other side of the lot. SALLY: But she’s sitting in my way You could walk around her. Two feet either direction. SALLY: You don’t understand She’s sitting in my way If you want me I’ll be upstairs watching Grilling With Frank. Grilling With Frank SALLY: It’s the one cooking show where nobody catches on fire.

slide 28:

You were telling me last time about Colby and Troy SALLY V.O.: Oh yeah. It was actually kind of awkward for a while there. I mean no matter where I’d go they’d sort of both be there. I really didn’t know what to do. What would you say if it was Amy with that problem SALLY V.O.: Oh if it was Amy with that problem I’d just pick the one I liked better and tell him to go flirt with her. Problem solved. But I came up with something eventually. What was that

slide 29:

SALLY V.O.: I asked Colby to go get coffee at Cash Carrie with me. The grocery store SALLY V.O.: Yes but they’ve got a little coffee bar area. Anyway we didn’t have anything to talk about. And this girl came over and asked if she would do her homework at our table and Colby said okay. That’s not good. SALLY V.O.: No it isn’t. And Amy’s not having the luck either. How do you mean

slide 30:

SALLY V.O.: Yusun tried to hit on Amy today. Who’s Yusun SALLY V.O.: The cow mascot. The one that hit me in the face last year. Oh that Yusun. Okay. So she tried to hit on Amy SALLY V.O.: Uh-huh. But Amy wasn’t having any of it. She told Yusun exactly what she could do with her suggestion. Good for her SALLY V.O.: Well it wasn’t a very nice set of instructions. But Amy doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere with Jess and she gets hit on by really pretty skeevy people so I thought I’d do something nice for her. Uh-oh. What’d you do

slide 31:

SALLY V.O.: I Influenced Adam Santander to flirt with her. Was that a good idea I mean they aren’t even friends. SALLY V.O.: But he likes her. I know he does – he told her so. And she doesn’t not like him. He’s blonde And I know she likes blondes. So how’d it go SALLY V.O.: Um…

slide 32:

SALLY V.O.: Well I guess they didn’t know each other well enough to hold hands even if they do like each other. Told you. SALLY V.O.: And um Jess got real mad at Adam. For moving in on the girl he liked SALLY V.O.: That’s the weird part. It was almost like Jess was mad at Adam for cheating on him. Except I know for a fact that they’re both straight and have never had a relationship. Never SALLY V.O.: Not ever. That is weird.

slide 33:

SALLY V.O.: Amy was really mad at me but then she said she’d get over it if she was allowed to Influence someone to have a romantic interaction with me. What did you say SALLY V.O.: I said okay. I mean I’ve messed things up for her twice now trying to be helpful. Fair’s fair. So how did that work out for you

slide 34:

SALLY V.O.: Oh you know. It was okay.

slide 35:

Junior year ended with Amy somehow managing to get stuck inside a chair in someone else’s room. I can’t figure out how she did it. I ended up using “moveobjects on” to get her unstuck.

slide 36:

Hi Sally. How’s your senior year going SALLY V.O.: Pretty good. Things okay with Troy SALLY V.O.: Well they were kind of awkward sometimes. DORMIE IN THE WHITE SHIRT: You’re not hungry Troy TROY: coming out of a daze Huh DORMIE IN THE WHITE SHIRT: Hungry. Food. You. Eat TROY: No no. I’m okay thanks. DORMIE IN THE WHITE SHIRT: shaking her head Boy’s got it bad.

slide 37:

SALLY V.O.: So I asked him if he wanted to go get coffee. We went to Cash Carrie again. You like that place huh SALLY V.O.: Meh it’s cheap. And there’s nowhere else on campus to get coffee unless you want to go to the gym. Besides it’s the same place I went with Colby. So how’d it go SALLY V.O.: Oh it was great We had lots to talk about.

slide 38:

SALLY V.O.: In fact we had so much to talk about that we ended up going to Benny’s Seafood to keep on talking. confidingly We got hungry you see. Ah. SALLY V.O.: But he eats so slowly He must be as Neat as Oliver as slowly as he eats. Well that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s nice to have someone around who likes to clean up messes. SALLY V.O.: Uh-huh. But you want to know the best part What’s that

slide 39:

SALLY V.O.: I think he likes me SALLY: gives Troy a bear hug Oh Troy I’m so glad you came out with me I had a really good time tonight. lets go of Troy And I’m sorry I hugged you like that. But I like you a lot and I hope you like me. TROY: I do. SALLY: And um I kind of hope you aren’t gay or anything. Not that there’s anything wrong with that But… TROY: I am definitely not gay. Why on earth where you worried about that Didn’t he kiss you already SALLY V.O.: Under Influence. And then he didn’t talk to me. And then there’s the whole Adam/Jess thing.

slide 40:

How is that going SALLY V.O.: Adam and Jess I don’t know. They never talked before and they still don’t. But Adam and Amy seem to be making friends. That’s great Are your studies going okay

slide 41:

SALLY V.O.: What studies Amy and I have had terrible senioritis. In fact the only thing that can cure it is frequent visits to the pool. Or the bowling alley. Or you know anywhere except class. That’s the cure all right.

slide 42:

SALLY V.O.: But it’s all good – it’s over We finished We’re free confidingly You should have seen us cheering after our last final. What will you do now SALLY V.O.: Oh I don’t know. Amy’s going to go home again I think but I kind of want to travel. Maybe take a little time out. Will you miss anyone from school SALLY V.O.: Oh yes I’ll miss Jim and Colby and Catalina and Allyn and – Troy

slide 43:

SALLY V.O.: Him too. But I think that maybe I won’t have to miss him very long. Uh… SALLY V.O.: But you know who’s really going to miss who Who

slide 44:

SALLY V.O.: I think Amy is really going to miss Adam. excitedly mock-scandalized She kissed him goodbye before she called the taxi She kissed him All on her own She must like him then. SALLY V.O.: I know Isn’t it terrific horn honks outside Oh there’s my cab I’ll talk to you later okay Sure. And Sally SALLY V.O.: Yes Congratulations

slide 45:

And so Amy and Sally both graduated transitioning into clothes I would not have picked. Okay Amy I get the picture. You are out of your pink fishnet phase and you want a somewhat more conservative look. I’ll take care of it. And Sally… Well well just have to fix that. Even I know that’s not a good look for anyone. I apologize for the bumpy format this chapter – it was an experiment and I think an unsuccessful one. Next time we will return to our usual format. At that time we will also stop using the royal “we.” Until next time Happy Simming
