Hallowed Halls, Fall 2017

Pierce University
Veronika Kent and Laci McMillian are sophomores. (Juliet Benson and Zhou Mi are sophomores, Patrick Benson is a junior)

none currently enrolled

narrated by Veronika

Laci has started dating Zhou. 

They've been dating for a few months now since the middle of the summer. 

They're both sweet and silly. They are both majoring in biology, but Laci wants to be a vet and Zhou wants to be a teacher. I think he said that after graduation, he has to return to Kimikura  and teach for three simyears as part of his tuition grant.

Laci says that it's too early in their relationship to worry about such things, but then she talks all night about the possibilities. She still has veterinary school to attend, so it's not like she can just get married right after graduation.

Sometimes my cousin overthinks things. I told her to just enjoy her time with Zhou. They're not engaged or even serious yet, so just continue to learn more about him.

I hope he helps her become a bit more laid back, at times she's so stressful to be around.

Not like Juliet.

Juliet and I have been friends since freshman year, we're both artists and we have a lot of things in common.

I guess it was only natural for us to take the next step.

I haven't told Laci because then she would insist on stupid double dates and stuff and that's not at all what I want.

Things with Juliet are...complicated. I guess romance for me is complicated.

I tried kissing guys and stuff in secondary school, but there were not sparks. So obviously, I'm not into guys.

But...girls don't appeal to me either. I thought that if Juliet and I were physical with each other, there would be sparks, but there was nothing.

Juliet's kind of hard to keep apathetic feelings undercover. She insisted on showing me all sorts of photos of guys and gals to see my reaction. She thinks that I am asexual. When I looked it up, it made a lot of sense. The only time I ever get sparks is when I'm painting!

I've been thinking about my options concerning art and school. I don't really need a degree to paint, but I guess it is nice to study under others. However, there is a much better school in Deux-Sèvres that I could transfer to for the last two years of my studies.

I wanted to talk to Laci about it, since we always talked about being roommates throughout university.

Before I could even start she said, "Don't tell me that you're gay, cause everyone knows that you and Juliet have a thing going on."

My mouth dropped. "I'm not gay! But I'm not not gay's confusing, whatever, that's not what I wanted to talk to you about."

She was upset, but she said that she understood that there were better artists in Deux-Sèvres and that I would grow more artistically. That made me feel so much better. I told her about being asexual as well and she shrugged and said that it made sense. That I never really showed interest in anything that wasn't a paintbrush.

I'm going to miss Laci and Pierce University, but I think that I would enjoy Deux-Sèvres  more. Now I just need to apply.


  1. Veronika seems like she's really honest with herself, realizing that she really hasn't felt any sparks for anyone, of either gender. Juliet seems to be taking it really well, not personally. I miss having an artistic sim!! Right now I don't have anyone really into art.

    1. I always seem to have artistic sims in my game, it's almost a tradition. However there isn't a younger artistic sim coming up the ranks...yet. Thanks for reading and commenting

  2. Veronika's revelation was certainly a surprise! It should be really interesting to watch her life unfold, as what asexuality is to one person is very different to what it might mean to another. Some asexuals marry and have kids and some choose to stay single.

    Laci and Zhou seem like a sweet couple. If they're still together when he has to go to Kimikura, that's obviously going to be a challenge but hopefully, their relationship will be strong enough to withstand it. In the meantime, she should focus on having fun with him. :)

    1. I've struggled with Veronika for a while, once I stumbled upon asexuality I knew it fit her perfectly. I'm not sure how Veronika will be in the future in terms of relationships. Especially now since she's so focused on her art right now. Thanks for reading and commenting

  3. I'm actually not that surprised by Veronika being asexual. She always seemed much more interested in her art than in romance with other Sims - male or female. I remember her trip to Deux-Sèvres with Fiona from a few years ago, it looks like it would be a great place to study art and probably more suited to Veronika's talents than Pierce University.

    Laci and Zhou are a sweet pair, but they should definitely not get too far ahead of themselves. It might last until Zhou goes to Kimikura, or even further, but they're still students and there's no pressure to settle down just yet. My advice to them would be to enjoy each day while it lasts, have fun, and make more serious plans if their relationship gets to that stage. Don't pick names for your grandchildren on the first date. :)

    1. Lol, yes they're going to take it slow, but I'm not so sure about me not making big plans for them. I'll try to see how they develop together and not make marriage plans for them yet. Thanks for reading and commenting

  4. Kind of sad that Veronika isn't going to be Laci's roommate, but I'm very excited to see how her new education works and pans out. Laci and Zhou are really adorable together, and I'm curious how their relationship will work out, seems like they might have a few obstacles but that doesn't necessarily mean doom. Really curious of Veronika will find someone at a later date and settle down, or if she will stay neutral in that department.

    1. I'm going to miss them as roommates as well, however I think that they might still be roommates after their university days are over. Thank you for reading and commenting


Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment! :)
