        1. Or on a lighter note, Tobi and Colette felt empty nest syndrome with Gus grown up anyways, and with so many holes in their hearts, find new joy with raising their cute little grandson. He plays piano with great-grandma Mari and everything.

          …it can happen, right? 😦

    1. Lol not sure if it’s exactly humorous. This made me cry harder than anything I’ve done in the story yet!

      We’ll see what happens with their son. There is definitely no shortage of family willing to take him in, so I’m sure he’ll be fine πŸ™‚

  1. No 😭 I can’t say Luc and Hazel were ever my favorite couple, but even my least favorite characters are still loved by me. I bet Joce is kind of wishing she didn’t hang up on Luc… At least they got to talk one last time.

    Are Luc and Hazel alive in game, or did you have to kill them?

    1. I know, this is very upsetting (or should be haha) even if you didn’t like them. Way too young 😦

      And yes, they are dead in game. I cried while doing it 😦

        1. Yeah, this was really really hard for me. From the time he was a child back in Gen 3, every single time I screenshotted him or wrote about him, I just kept thinking “omg I’m gonna have to kill him” 😦 And that’s part of why I got so defensive of Luc and Hazel haha it was like people were speaking ill of the dead haha

          1. Yeah :-/ I vividly remember the very first screenshot I took of child-Luc back in Gen 3 (in the chapter where they find the baseball card) and he was so cute and little and I felt so upset knowing his fate hahaha

  2. I did not want my guess of Mark’s death to come true (even if the “Joce and Luc reconcile at his funeral” resolution was sounding so satisfying!), but not like this.

    Soooooooo not like this. πŸ˜₯

  3. Tragic. Poor Rosebrooks! And Mark. I can’t imagine.

    Jocelyne…
    Death doesn’t discriminate between the sinners and the saints. It takes and it takes and it takes, but we keep living anyway. We rise and we fall, and we break and make our mistakes. And if there’s a reason you’re still alive when your twin brother who loved you has died, STOP WAITING FOR IT!!! YOU are the one thing in life you can control, and your pride has robbed you of many opportunities to get it right and now it is too late! My condolences to you. I’m sure you’re awake now.

  5. This is what happens to side characters our beloved are can’t come up with a rule for in future generations. They either disappear without a trace, move away, or get axed! A note to future generations stay in your authors good graces or this could be you.

    On a other note who gets Zayne? I’m suspecting Mark since he’s the only family he has left. And all you Marklyne fans might get your happy ending. Nothing brings people closer than death. Ask Romeo and Juliet well you can’t but you get what I’m say!

  6. Oh god no 😭 I came so close to crying. Oh dear and they never really made up. I hope Joce can somehow make her peace with this at some point (certainly not any time soon) I would hate to see it haunt her for the Rest of her life. But it might be a wake up call for her too. You never know how much time you have left so Holding grudges is the last thing you should do!

  8. πŸ˜₯. I hate this but is it terrible that I am happy it wasn’t Mark? 😳 I really didn’t want anyone to die in an attempt to raise the Markyln from the depths of the ocean of tears. 😞

    I wonder who will take Zayne? Maybe this is where we find out what Luc wanted to tell her… Since they now had a child, he and Hazel had a will drawn up and assigned guardianship of their chikd (children) to her in the event something should happen to them. The ultimate show of love and respect. Even if she wasn’t awarded guardianship or if a battle ensues over who should raise Zayne I think she will want very badly to be involved in his upbringing to be closer to her brother. If not, this Is most definitely a wake up call that life is short. Don’t spend it being angry and apart from those you love. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone. I can definitely see this bringing her and Mark together. He will be the one that will be able to comfort her and let her know that Luc and Hazel regret everything they put her through and even understand why she went berserk at their wedding.

    1. Lmao well I’m glad you’re happy it wasn’t mark… though at least he got to live past his 30s haha So if you take Marklyne out of the equation, I find Luc and Hazel’s deaths way worse. But that’s just me!

      We will see if we ever know what Luc was going to tell Joce, as well as what will happen to Zayne and how this loss affects poor Joce in the long run 😦 This is gonna be hard.

            1. I don’t know about that. There are a lot of crappy parents in the world. Let’s just be glad that Mark was so devoted to Hazel. It’s why she grew up with a pretty good perception of what love is. I’m just gonna focus on how much love she was able to give to Luc and add to his life, rather than think about what she thought love was supposed to make other people do or not do. She and Luc really loved each other. And really grew together as a couple, and as time went by, they helped each other grow as people. Some Sims (and people) would be lucky to find a love that true.

  9. This will be so hard on Joce losing her brother is hard enough on it’ s own but while still holding on to the anger and hurt feelings of being wronged by him. Her twin who she must feel he should have considered her feelings as well as his own in that difficult situation. Now knowing she’ll never get the chance to apologise for the hurt she caused him to make herself feel better/cutting herself off to punish him for his part in her heartbreak. Hope she can get past it and just be there for little Zayne who will need to be engulfed in love. My heart breaks for the little fella.

  12. Called it.

    From a literary perspective, this is how it *had* to go (though not necessarily by fire). It takes a really strong writer to be able to kill off her characters, and it’s nice(?) that we got a premature death. Really shows how life doesn’t always have a happily ever after.

    I’m even happy that Joce didn’t get a chance to fully apologize. Leaves her much more room for character growth. Eh, it’s probably the Literature teacher in me talking, but there’s so much more scope for imagination in tragedy over comedy.

    I bet Joce muttered in her sleep: “Lucas must DIE! HE MUST DIE!” Of course, I know Joce wouldn’t do such a thing. Marklyne can go back together at least?

    I’m so sorry, Citizen. I know this was hard for you to show the tragic death of one of your beloved characters.

  14. Great job on the look of the newspaper article. I love that print hasn’t gone away in the Sim’s world.

    Since Joce holds on to things forever, I suppose she’ll be stuck on this for quite a while. I wish she could look at things differently. Before she got that call, she seemed intent on never repairing her relationship with her twin. So…. you know…. eh, never mind.

    Looking forward to seeing how this affects Joce’s location. Will she go back home? What of the triplets? What will their father say?

      1. I know, I know, no one would. So I left it alone. I’m all by myself, still hating Luc and Hazel, even after death. I know Joce loved Luc though, and she was just holding onto a grudge even though it was hurting her more and more. So I’m letting it go… about as much as I let it go that I’m still dying to hear Mari’s perspective in her journal here and there…

          1. I just think there would be far fewer grudges in the world if people actually considered what they’d feel like if the person they’re grudging against died. Joce knew how to love like there was no tomorrow, and she learned in the hardest way possible that you should also grudge like there’s no tomorrow. Perhaps if she’d considered it, she would’ve made up with Luc when she still had time.

        1. Not totally alone. While I think ‘hate’ is a strong word to describe my feelings for them, they definitely slipped down the relationship tree to “I won’t haul off and punch them over the Christmas goose”.

          1. I think the thing with Luc and Hazel is that they showed a lot of growth and maturity over the years (unlike Joce). I feel like continuing t hate them for their past mistakes is simply not fair. They tried so hard to make amends.

            And I don’t care how terrible they were, who deserves to die at 30?! Haha (not saying you necessarily feel this way, but it’s seeming like there are a few people who don’t seem particularly sad that they died haha).

  15. I know many people are okay with Lucas and Hazel dying, but man. My heart fell when I read the first sentence. Yeah, Luc was a jerk… eight years ago. He definitely didn’t deserve to die. Oh no, I keep thinking back to Lucas moments- when he, Joce, and Clara were kids, when he started his band, when he met Hazel. You know, before things got so bad. He was thirty years old and Hazel was 28. That’s just so, so young. I was really hoping it had been someone in generation 3 or above (not including Clara but I still consider her to be part of gen 4) because their stories feel almost over. But Lucas had so much ahead of him. And I do believe Jocelyne would have forgiven him, even if it took years and even if things were never the same again, because he was her twin brother. I can’t stop thinking about what it would be like for me if my sister died, and it’s even worse for Mark, I bet- Hazel was everything to him and no parent should outlive their child.

    1. I’m very glad that you aren’t okay with it! I know some people weren’t all that upset, or said they were glad it was Luc and Hazel instead of Mark… But at least he’s gotten to live most of his life (he’s past 50 now). They had so much ahead of them. 😦 It’s just so heartbreaking to me. They died SO young (and they left behind that little boy πŸ˜₯ ). And you’re right, they were jerks 7-8 years ago, they definitely did not deserve to die. Even if they were jerks NOW, they wouldn’t deserve this 😦

      But I’m evil and did it anyway *sigh*. This is going to be beyond devastating for my poor characters. 😦 It’s so tragic. Thank you for reading ❀

  16. Dang… I was pretty convinced it was gonna be one of the Grandparents (surely their time can’t be far off?)
    I’m really impressed at how you managed to write Luc and Hazel knowing this was going to happen. When I know a character is going to die I generally mentally distance myself from them and its obvious that something’s gonna happen to them. How was that scene where the two of them met to write, knowing what was to come?

    1. Hahahaha thanks. Yeah, this has been tough for me, knowing for so long that this was coming 😦 And you’re also right that I didn’t distance myself from them. But I kinda wanted to haha. Even when they were both jerks, I felt so much love for them (Luc more than Hazel, of course) and I cried like a baby both while writing and while killing them in-game (yes, they are dead in-game!)

      That chapter where they met was very bittersweet for me. I tried to really give them a fairytale romance, because I knew from the get-go that they’d have about 8 years together before they both died. So I figured I may as well give them a real and true love. But man. Every single Luc scene/chapter was painful for me, even back when he was just a kid in gen 3. His days were always numbered 😦

People argue and have falling outs and they never truly make amends before something tragically happens. It’s sad. That’s why my husband and I never go to bed mad because you never know. πŸ˜•
