4.4: Fame

So… remember that big audition I wrote about last week?

They posted the cast list today…

Guess who got the LEAD!

I seriously didn’t even believe it at first. I was SURE there was some mistake. But I checked and double checked and even triple­ checked… And my name was right there: Jocelyne Rosebrook – Jo March.

Can you believe I actually screamed, right there in the hallway? As if everyone else doesn’t already think I’m a total nutjob…

Thank God Joel and Mei were there. Everyone’s learned by now not to make fun of me in front of them, ever since Joel punched Curtis Weber last year for calling me a “goody two-shoes bitch”. Joel was suspended for a week – and coach almost kicked him off the track team.

To this day, he still tells me it was worth it.

Anyway, Joel took Mei and I out for ice cream to celebrate – she got cast as Amy, which means we get to have a fight scene and everything! Is it weird that we kinda can’t wait?

At first I thought my drama teacher was a little crazy for picking this weird old American play. Much as I love being onstage, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to audition this year. But now I’m so glad Mei convinced me to.

I’m just hoping some of my luck will rub off on Luc. He’s had a few auditions of his own lately. His band is getting so desperate for a gig. And now that they have a few original songs in their catalog, they’re finally ready. Luc seems pretty confident about this most recent opportunity. It’s down at one of the old cafés in the city center. Not exactly Windenburg Stadium or anything, but hey — it’s a start.

06-22-16_9-47-28 PM

Honestly I think he’s just excited to be part of a band at all, no matter where they play. I was kind of shocked when Florian first asked Luc to join him and his buddies in their band. I mean, they’re all so… cool. And so much older than us too.

06-22-16_8-40-20 PM

But I’ve gotta admit, my Bruder’s pretty good. And when Oma found out Florian’s band was looking for a guitarist, she knew exactly who to recommend.

06-22-16_9-14-42 PM

It’s kind of funny, isn’t it? My Bruder and I are both so into performing. Opa always likes to joke about it – How the Rosebrooks are all destined for fame and greatness. My great-grandfather, the writer. My Papa, the athlete. Lucas, the rock star. And me, the actress. Maybe Gus needs to get into politics or something. He definitely has the charisma for it.

“I think I ruined your poor Oma’s chances by making her a Klein.” Opa always likes to tease.

Poor Clara. She’s not a Rosebrook either.

I wonder if that means all she’s destined for is that ridiculous blog.

Note: Jocelyne’s friends, Joel and Mei, and Clara’s friend Lena (who we will see more of soon) were all made by JoieWilder 🙂 I gave her descriptions of how I imagined Jocelyne and Clara’s friends, and she totally delivered!

  1. I didn’t think Jocelyne would be into acting. The more you know. I love how dismissive everyone is of that one person in the family who has a blog… reminds me of my own life lmao.

    And YAY, characters have friends!

    1. Hahahaha yeah, no one takes Clara’s blog seriously. Poor thing 😦 And yes, Jocelyne is an aspiring actress ^_^ She’s pretty calm and soft spoken offstage, but really lets go when she’s acting!

      And yes, friends! 😮 Hehehehe

    1. Haha I loved Little Women ages ago too! ^_^

      And in theory, you’re right, they wouldn’t be haha. But Jocelyne isn’t thinking quite that far ahead yet 😛

    1. Hahahaha this is too funny… So far we have someone shipping Jocelyne and Joel and two people shipping Jocelyne and Florian. The shipping has begun! 😛 (And thanks, I loved that face too! Hahaha good ol’ Clara)


      1. Hahaha he is super hot! I was shocked, for real! He was born from two gallery sims in an old “for fun” save, and I’d never aged him up from a child. When I did, I was like “UM, hello.” 😛 (of course his hair, facial hair, and tattoos helped. But that face is adorable XD)

        Sorry, I totally have a Florian crush 😛 And another shipper! That amuses me 😛

  2. You stood up to him by punching him? Why couldn’t you like, correct his grammar or something? Sorry – I will never agree with violence… But, hey, it’s okay when it’s in a story because if that’s how a character would do it, then it’s actually more satisfying. I just like making that point!

    Being a nutjob myself, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a nutjob. Would you rather be boring?

    And hehehe ‘that ridiculous blog…’ that’s what my dad says about mine! I would agree with Jocelyne if I didn’t know what it felt like!

    This is such a cheerful chapter! I love it!

    Oh, and BTW, congrats Jocelyne! 🙂

    And I ship Joel and Mei. #Jei

    1. Yeah, I get the “ridiculous blog” type comments too, unfortunately 😛

      And our first Joel and Mei shipper! So far we’ve had Joel and Jocelyne and Florian and Jocelyne shippers in the comments 😛 Nice to see a change 😉

  3. Special request: More pictures of Florian please.

    In other news I love the pictures of the kids at school, thank goodness the Get To School mod still works right? I love seeing all the teens really moving forward in life, I am waiting for the drama however ♥

    1. Yesssss Florian is beautiful hahahaha. I’m glad you liked the school pictures! 😀 I actually don’t even use the Get to School mod 😮 I used to ages ago, but I don’t use it in this save. And don’t worry, drama is coming! Tobi and Colette get a lot of it in this story-arc, but the teens will have some too 😉

  4. Oh wow Jocelyne an aspiring actress?😍 Perfect! She’s got the looks, she’s got the voice, she’s a total package! 👌 I’m so happy for her! And also for Luc! Yay these kids are so talented! And then there’s Clara who’s “destined for that ridiculous blog” Bahahaha 😂😂 I can’t believe that’s what Jocelyn thinks of her aunt’s blog😜

    Btw, Joie did an amazing job with these sims! They’re all gorgeous😍👌

  5. Oh, Jocelyne just stole my heart even more than she already had ❤ I've been doing theatre for like nine years. She is so much like me, it's kind of crazy. I am totally #TeamJocelyne. Love how she has some good friends, too.

    And yay for all the talented, artistic kids! Such a cool family 🙂

    1. I love that you’re such a fan of Joce 🙂 I do love her quite a bit! And yes, this gen is quite creative! A writer, a musician, and an actress ^_^ We’ll see what Auggy ends up doing someday 😛


    1. Hahahaha let me put it this way — they love each other very much because they are family. They do not LIKE each other nearly as much 😉

  6. I’m very happy to see that Jocelyne is into acting. Never judge a book by its cover – since she may be quiet, but she can certainly act! 😀 I love that you gave her that interest, it suits her perfectly 🙂 It’s also great to see some friends around 😉
    I also need to add that I concur with Lee – that screenshot and Clara’s reaction to Jocelyne was priceless. It was like she was going, “Why am i related to her? Seriously? Is that even necessary?” XD So funny LOL!

    1. Hahahaha thanks so much! ^_^ I loved making Joce an actress. She is quiet and reserved but has an outgoing side that comes out onstage. And yes! Friends! 😛

      And Clara… Oh Clara. ❤ Hehehe


  7. Yay! It felt good to read a light and happy chapter! 😀 ! I love Clara’s face in that second shot, spot on! Also, wow Florian looks awesome in his new look! I’m happy that so far the Gen 4 characters (this doesn’t include Cobi 😦 ) are having a little less drama in their life for now. I’m sure though, with you as the writer, that won’t last long… 😀

    1. Haha I love that shot of Clara’s face too, thanks! 😀 And yes, not as much drama as we’re used to so far… But you know that’s gonna change eventually 😉 😛


  8. Woah, Florian was Mari’s student in the previous generation right? I knew he was gonna be important in the long run! Anyway, Jocelyn has such good friends 😀 I love them all already!

    1. Yup! That’s Mari’s (favorite!) piano student, all grown up and friends with her grandson 😛 And thanks! Joce has very good friends 😀


  9. *distractedly drools over Florian* Wait, what happened during the chapter? *crickets*

    Oh yeah. Jocelyn got cast as the lead (I think? Can’t say I’m familiar with the play haha). That’s interesting, I didn’t think she’d be into acting, but it kind of makes sense. I guess my initial thought was that the type of person you’d normally picture as an actor would be somebody more eccentric and spotlight seeking. But then I remembered why I took drama classes in high school – because I loved the opportunity to be somebody else. Somebody far more interesting than me, in my eyes. I’d hazard to guess that’s why Joce is in it too.

    1. You may be the leader of the florian fan club LMAO I love it!!!

      The play is an American one (based on a book) called Little Women. I picked it for a few reasons, one being that I was the lead in that play myself when I was in college 😛

      And you have perfectly hit the nail on the head of why Joce acts 🙂 She loves being someone else and, secretly, loves the attention too. But she’s too shy and reserved in her “real life” to be the center of attention. So she gets it by being someone else 🙂

      1. Haha I love Florian 😀 Ah, I have heard of little women, I think I saw the film adaptation when I was really young but don’t particularly remember much aside from it being about many sisters 🙂 Oh, and that makes me like Joce more than I did before, I can definitely relate 🙂

  10. OH MY GOODNESS. Okay, I have to jump to the comments before even finishing the chapter.
    1. I have decided I am so Jocelyne. I love acting, and Jo March is one of my dream roles. I just got a little excited there.
    2. I’m also a goody-two-shoes
    3. I’m a writer
    Now all you have to throw in is a large handful of mental disorders and yup that’s pretty much me XD

  11. Aw, Little Women! The play itself kind of tells us more about Jocelyn’s character – who I am really relating to right now, by the way. I got up this morning and started reading even before I had breakfast – I’m really excited for Gen 4 and 5!

    Florian is hot ._.

  12. I love this gen, I’ll probably be double commenting more than I did on other chapters of my reread since I just love them so much, though there is nothing new to say other than Little Women is still my favorite novel ever, Jo March my favorite character and dream musical role. B)
    I hope Joce is still alive in your game now :thinking: you’re at gen six so those would be her grandkids’ generation. Yeah, she should still be alive.
