3.3: Incredible

Note: Attention, dear readers! If you didn’t see my post on the forums, I really want to share with you guys a “Song Short” that I made to showcase Jonas and Mari’s relationship. I feel bad that our time jump skipped the development of their relationship, so I wanted to have a chance to showcase their love for each other. You don’t have to look at it, but if you would like some super sappy Mari and Jonas action before you read about the wedding, here you go! (Warning, tissues may be necessary. This song gives me major feels, especially when I think of it from Mari’s POV haha)

“You” (A Song Short)

And now… Is that wedding bells I hear? 😉


2 3 1b

I’m getting married tonight.

In less than an hour.

Holy Shit.


So I decided now was as good a time as any to start a new journal. New journal, new life, y’know? I’m sure there’s some kind of cheesy metaphor here about starting on a blank page or something. I dunno.

The point is, this will be a new start for me and my boys.

Because I’m getting married to the love of my life.

If you had told me ten years ago – hell, five years ago – that I would ever be writing those words, I would have handed you a one-way ticket to the nearest looney bin (and Dr. Durand’s got some connections there, so… It’s a legit threat).

And speaking of Dr. Durand… I haven’t seen him in a couple years… We decided I was ready to try this thing on my own. But I still email him every now and then. And I even invited him to the wedding. He told me he’d try to make it. And I really hope he can… I want him to be proud of me, you know? See how far I’ve come.

And I’d love for him to meet Jonas.


Man… Who would have guessed that royally fucking up the wifi settings would end up being one of the best things I’ve ever done? One minute I was rolling my eyes at the nerdy guy they’d sent over to help me fix it. The next, I was fighting off a flurry of butterflies in my stomach every time I looked at his smile.


It’s so damn cliché, but it really does feel like it was only yesterday. But God, it’s been more than two years already, hasn’t it? Time really does fly, I guess.

Especially when you’re having as much fun as we do.


He’s just… Perfect. I can’t think of any other way to describe him.

We can talk for hours about… nothing. But it never gets old or boring. I love listening to his voice. I love watching the way his mouth moves. I love hearing what he has to say. He’s so clever… And so damn funny. I could listen to him all day.


And he’s so smart, too. A Hell of a lot smarter than me.


He loves science, and nature, and history… All this deep shit I’d never really given much thought to. But when he talks about it, I can’t help but get excited too. He makes me think about things I’d never thought of before. He changes the way I look at the world, you know?


And when I see him with my boys… This is so stupid, but it really makes me want to cry. I still remember how terrified I was when I finally introduced them to him. But it was the best decision of my life. He loves them so much. He treats them like they’re his. And I could not be more grateful.

7 7

He’s like the exact opposite of me. So sweet and patient. So charming and funny. So handsome and sexy…


And when we make love… Oh my God.

He is the most incredible human being I’ve ever met.

And yet somehow, for some reason, he chose me.


But why?

Why would someone like him want to be stuck for the rest of their life with someone like me?

Someone who snaps at him over the stupidest little shit.

Someone who has to lie to her kids every fucking day about who their father is.

02-25-16_8-59-30 PM

Someone who spent eight fucking years in therapy and still needs to stand in front of the mirror every morning and remind herself she isn’t a total piece of garbage.

02-25-16_8-57-02 PM

Someone who hasn’t done shit to ever deserve –

    1. Hehehehehe well of course it wasn’t gonna be THAT simple. 😉 Mari is so much better than she used to be… But those self-esteem issues still run deep, unfortunately.*sigh* I wonder if Jonas will be able to talk her down from this? Or will she go as far as calling off the wedding?! *gasp* Tune in tomorrow 😉 Hehe

      (And thanks, I love that first screenshot too! I have been using so many poses lately XD The next chapter has a bunch too :P)

    1. ^_^ I hope he’ll be able to! I feel like Lina ran off to get him right away because she knew that if Jonas couldn’t calm her down, no one could. (But the question is… Can he? :-0 )

    1. You’ll see what happens tomorrow! Hopefully he can talk her down from this. Mari has come such a long way, but those issues still run pretty deep, unfortunately 😦 Thanks for reading!!!!


    1. Mari’s feet are definitely feeling a bit chilly… Hopefully Jonas can warm them up in the next chapter? (Okay I took that metaphor too far and now it’s weird XD)

      And yes, a nooboo is on the way for Lina! ^_^

  1. You evil evil Citizen! I wanna know what happens! And Mari, we love you! We all think you’re awesome! Look how far you came! I thought Lina had put on a bit of weight! 😀
    And please stop teasing us about calling off the wedding. It’s cruel! *fake sniff sniff* (See, Mari, that’s how much faith I have in you! Whatever Citizen says… 😉 )
    Can’t wait to see what happens! 🙂 And could I also please have the cc link for the veil if it’s not too much trouble?

  4. All right, Jonas!! You and Mari are getting married!!

    Mari, if you’re reading this, please don’t mess this up. If you do, Jonas and kids’ hearts will be broken.

    Lina’s pregnant?? Woo-hoo!! *blows celebration horn*

  5. Don’t you dare mess this up now, Mari. Look at how far you’ve come. Don’t let that little voice at the back of your mind tell you that you don’t deserve this. Because you do.

    1. I love how encouraging this comment is ❤ We will see tomorrow what happens to poor Mari! Hopefully it will all end well! Thanks for reading ^_^


    1. OMG Rae this just made my day XD (And Mari’s! She appreciates the wedding present, and hopefully will make good use of it when she’s out of her funk :P)

  6. I think it’s incredible how you’ve managed to get the perfect faces for the situation. They all look so sad in the last pictures, and it fits the situation perfectly (if you’ve got a mod for that, i seriously need it xD).

    I hope Mari doesn’t ruin this lovely day of theirs. It’s important that a wedding, maybe not be perfect, but at least on its way to perfection.

    And Jonas seems so perfect for her. Someone to cheer her up when she’s unhappy, someone she can laugh with, hold on to, and seek comfort with when she needs it, when life seems so hard she can barely manage to get out of bed. I can imagine she must have had some days like that.

    1. Thank you so much! ^_^ I do have a mod called enable advanced debug cheat interactions (what a mouthful!)that allows you to shift+click on a sim, and change their emotion to anything you want without having to do cheats to add and remove buffs. I use it ALL the time. My screenshots wouldn’t be possible without it! For those pictures, Mari was in the “sad” emotion, and everyone else was “embarrassed” — I use Embarrassed way more often than you might think, because the default embarrassed expression looks very “pained”/uncomfortable. 🙂

      I love that you are such a fan of Jonas and Mari together. He has seen her through a lot of really difficult days, and hopefully he can get her through this one too!

      1. I just read your comment now and I did see it all 🙂 Would you mind sending me a pm on the forums with a link to the mod? I really need it for my story 😉

        Also, I can relate to Mari a bit. I have had my share of bad days and my bf has gotten me through them all, when I was really sad and depressed. So I can imagine what Mari must have felt like.

        Anyway, I would love that link 😉 It would definitely make taking screenshots a hell of a lot easier 😛

  7. Well that escalated quickly. Anyway, I’ve been reading from the start just haven’t commented and even though I stopped playing the sims 4 awhile back, I still read your stories

    1. Oh wow, thank you for reading!!! I’m really happy that you decided to comment, and it means a lot to have you reading! ^_^ And yes, that did escalate quite quickly haha poor Mari started sinking a bit there! 😦


  8. Hahaha you are too funny! ^_^

    Ah yes, Mari’s wedding. That was a very high stress and emotional day for her! The chapter after this is one I really loved writing a lot ^_^

    I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures! 😀

  9. Mariiiiiiiii 😦 I get it though, totally fictional character, not feeling deserving or good enough.
    On another note, I’m interested to see Jonas’s play in this story. Does he help Mari? Does it complicate things? How will the boys continue to react? Parental issues at a young age are never easily understood.

  10. Oh no! Jonas please talk some sense into her and calm her down. Damn you Citizen why do you do this lol. I’m going to need blood pressure meds after messing with you and your Sims 😑
