Jade's Epilogue

You don't always know when you are going to come across the person who completely changes your life, but it can happen at any time. For Jade this happened when she was utterly lost in Windenburg. She got up the courage to ask a stranger for some directions

Despite her tattooes and rough and tough look, Ulrike Faust was a pretty friendly sim and offered to take her around to some of the near by sites. Jade happily agreed. 

She felt pretty immediately comfortable with Ulrike. She confessed to her something she hadn't told any of the other contestants. Jade had entered the contest for Dmitri without any intention to win. She had purposely put very little effort into it, because in her heart of hearts she knew she wasn't meant to be with a guy. She had gone into it to prove a point to herself, and gain some independence from her family while she worked it out. She knew once and for all the night before the reveal that she didn't want to marry him, or any guy for that matter, and thats why she had stayed up almost the whole night with dread. When it was over, she had gained enough confidence to tell her parents that she was just not the type of princess that wanted a prince. They were okay with her decision, but it definitely changed their relationship. 

Ulrike had similar experiences, part of the reason why she had joined the Renegades was because they didn't judge her for her preferences, where previous groups had. Despite their highlights in that regard, they didn't have much appreciation for any activites beyond setting traps and being mean to others, she felt like she had out grown her relationship with them.  


At the end of the night, they shared their first kiss. It had been an unusual date, but the best one either of them had in a long time. 

Many years later, they were still going strong. Jade lived with Ulrike in Windenberg with her roommate Maaike. She worked on becoming a skilled chef at a good restaurant while Ulrike was working up the ranks of the painting career.

Then right before they were going to head home after a romantic movie evening, Jade proposed to the woman she loved. 

They exchanged promises to keep each other moving forward and treasure the moments along the way. Most of all, to support each other. With that, they shared their first kiss as newly weds

A wedding wouldn't be a wedding without a laugh!

They moved to Newcrest to a cottage that reminded Ulrike of her home town of Windenburg 

It was at the park that Jade noticed Ulrike looking longly at the kid park, she pulled her wife into a big hug and murmured that they should sit and talk about it.

They had talked briefly about children when they first got married, but back then it had seemed like a distant reality. Seeing that desire again, Jade brought the subject back up with a smile.  Ulrike confessed she wanted a large family because she had never had one, she had been a only child and had gone through the foster system.  

They talked about their concerns, and the hardship of it. But they finally decided they wanted to commit to achieving a large family and they would do it through adoption. 

The adoption process was a long one, bu eventually they were approved to adopt Dominic. They were tentative with him at first, but Ulrike's own experiences helped them considerably. 

It wasn't long after that they welcomed Jackie. The two boys got along instantly. 

It was over a year later that they welcomed Theresa to the family

Dominic wasn't enthused about having a sister, he felt scared that they would love her more. He went from moments of feeling very sad to very angry

They had all been encouraged to interact and get to know each other, but Dominic couldn't help but take his anger out on Theresa, she would greet him with a smile and he would answer with a sneer

He even went as far as to scare her 

Ulrike scolded him and told him if he had nothing nice to say, he shouldn't say it

The look on his face told her this was far from over yet

Dominic decided to take the saying literally, and gave Theresa the silent treatment

Jackie on the other hand made an effort to be nice to his sister, especially so to try to make up for how stubborn and unkind Dominic was being

Theresa had enough of it, with determination she went for every opportunity to be nice and talk at Dominic, even if he refused to talk back

Still, only Jackie was welcoming, they got along remarkably well

After almost a week, she was more discouraged, it was hard to feel like the wasn't wanted

Up until now, Theresa had put on a brave face, and his parents assured them that it was likely just a phase that would soon pass. But when Jackie saw she was upset, he snapped. He stormed up to Dominic and told him off

He berated his brother's behavior on the top of his lungs. Needless to say Dominic finally heard that loud and clear

Finally, Dominic apologized. They talked about how they felt about Theresa, and after spilling all of his worries, Dominic felt silly for being so threatened by her. He knew what it felt like to not have a family, he resolved to welcome Theresa.

He started with an apology, which Theresa accepted

Over time his continued change attitude towards her proved his sincerity 

Moving forward, their family became quite close knit. The kids turned to Ulrike for help with practical matters, and Jade was always there with a sympathetic ear. 

Dominic would become a professional e-sport gamer when he grows up. His job and Finn's would sometimes go hand in hand, they would help each other with developing better games. Part of his internet fame would come from his hot-headed manner towards games. He was also quite genius when it would come to pushing games to extremes. Eventually he would develop a big wallop of a crush on Emilee but he would keep it to himself for the most part, as he felt Finn might feel the same way. They would live in an apartment together and he would often have his siblings stopping by and pushing him to get out of the house. 

Jackie would be a good business man eventually, he would run a shop that sold an arrangement of items from old books to art work. He would become a good peacekeeper, both in his line of work as well in his personal life. He had the benefit of being neat, family orientated and outgoing, working for him as well. Early on, he would realize his gender preference leaned towards other guys and would have a very handsome husband and create a family tradition by adopting his kids. 

Theresa on the other hand would grow up to be very independent and completely career focused. She would use her keen instincts and high logic skill to tackle becoming a detective. She could be both the bad and good cop, and had a reputation for a job well done. She wouldn't have a particular fondness for Emilee's family because of their possible criminal aspect, and would keep a close eye on her brothers infatuation 

As for their parents, they would both have successful careers by the end of their adulthood. Jade as a chef and Ulrike as a painter. When they both went grey, Ulrike refused to be confined by her age and would dye her hair blue. Jade would welcome her age more openly, keeping her hair natural. Their house would eventually become too big for the both of them and they would move back to Windenberg in a quaint one bedroom home. Their pride and joy would be in their family and they would often be the ones hosting get togethers for the entire group for as long as they possibly could. 

Arya's epilogue

Arya knew that she wanted a husband who was as wealthy as her, so through her connections she found out about Malcom Landgraab and made a point to hang out at the same parties. It didn't take long for him to notice her, he even asked her to home back to his home to have a meal. 

Unfortunately that didn't go as well as expected

Every cloud has a sliver lining, due to this fire Arya got to play the hero and spray him down. 

They even bonded over it, as Arya had once been victim to arson  herself, they even had a laugh over their cooking skills. Geoffrey on the other hand, didn't find any humor in his house almost burning down. 

It wasn't a surprise to Arya when she got the next call from Malcom. She found out that he was very different than his parents, they were very kind hearted, simple, good people. He on the other hand considered himself to be superior, he was dastardly, a snob, and evil. Yet still incredibly likable, despite not agreeing with everything he said, Arya was fasciated by him and his drive to be more successful than his parents ever had been. 

After a good date, he moved in to get a kiss, and Arya gave him a small peck on the cheek. She knew he was the sort of guy that would lose interest quickly, so she worked hard to keep him on his toes and constantly trying to win her affection. 

It was only months later that Malcom realized she was the one. He took her to a beach resort, got down on one knee and asked her to be his partner in life. 

Her answer was to reward him with a passionate kiss. 

His parents threw the wedding in Oasis Springs, it was a grand affair 

Still, they had time to enjoy the moment, finally they were wed

The princess mansion was vacant after Dmitri and Miracle decided to live in their futuristic space house, so Arya and Rylie decided to stay. After the wedding they decided to all live together temporarily until they all found where they wanted to go next. 

Rosalie was conceived shortly after the wedding.  

Rosalie was both a smart and sweet girl, she was especially fond of Rylie and they were close friends. 

Arya spent a lot of time committing to her passion for music, she had the desire to become a famous piano player. 

After Rosalie, she still wanted more, so they had another baby on the way

That brought Emilee into the picture, she was only a year younger than Rosalie. She was a quirky kid, she'd always wear the strangest outfits. She had interests that were geeky, which Arya had no experience with but was willing to entertain. The kids got a long well. 

When the kids got older they decided to move to Oasis Springs to be closer to Malcom's parents, who loved showing the girls with attention and presents. 

Emilee had a set up that most gamers would be green in envy at, she was often in her room playing online with Finn and Dominic (Jade's son). 

Rosalie was very much so a daddy's girl, she shared her gossip and secrets with him first

She always saw the best in him, something that make Malcom feel like he should be the best he could be. He took extra precautions in his criminal career to shield his girls' from having even a hint of his life outside of home.

Still, there were plenty out there that knew his true self. Rosalie found herself approached by a man claiming to be an FBI agent who was following her father. He warned her that her father wasn't who she expected. 

He was known as being a major crime boss, who rarely got his hands dirty. This lead to grudges from his underlings, who felt this was a sign of weakness and tried to over throw him.

Yet when he did take matter into his own hands, he was know for being merciless. 

Rosalie dismissed the man as a fraud. 

Yet when she spoke to her mom about her dads career and his reputation, she could see that the man had been telling the truth. Arya promised that her father had never been the death of anyone. He was resourceful with his money gathering practices. 

Rosalie was devastated. She couldn't believe her family. 

The next morning she made her opinions loud and clear and reprimanded her father for his life choices. 

Malcom was not keen on having his livelihood questioned. He firmly insisted that he was just a good business man. It provided the roof over their heads, it kept them living the life of luxury.
Finally Rosalie said that she couldn't live this way, and that she was going to move out and live with Sierra. 

Her parents couldn't stop her, she was now 18. She did agree not to tell Emilee about her reason for leaving the house, and agreed she wouldn't breath a word to anyone else. Despite being profoundly disappointed with her parents, she still loved them too much to go to the police.

Arya was heart broken, she had always known that Malcom took risks but she never thought it would pull their family apart. The relationship between herself and Malcom was tense at times after this, they often fought over his decision to continue choosing his career over his family. 

Eventually Malcom retired, and that helped them all reunite as a family

But it was never quite the same until the day he was diagnosed with an illness he would never be able to recover from.

Rosalie came over frequently to come and care for him. He did eventually apologize for his choice, and she was finally able to accept it.  

Emilee grew up to be a very beautiful girl, she was usually unaware of the affect she had on other people. Her apartment would be full of books, games, tv shows, and references galore. Both Finn and Dominic (Jade's son) would be good friends to her, but when they got older their dynamic would change, both would be interested in her. For the most part she would be unaware of it, but she also wasn't ready to tie herself down either. Eventually she would fuel her creativity into fantasy romance novels that would have moderate success. 

Rosalie would live with Sierra until she earned enough money to rent her own apartment. She would start at the bottom of a charity business and work her way up until she was well known for her good will and her determination to get people to do the right thing. She would eventually have kids and that would also help bridge the gap between herself and her parents. 

No one is ever prepared for death, even when it is expected. When Malcom did pass, the girls helped their mother grieve for him. Arya was relieved they all made amends before it happen. Arya had a long, challenging life with her husband, but still a good one. They both had successful careers, while very different ones. She got to live the life of luxury she wanted and in the end. She lived long enough to see her grandkids flourish under the loving household of her daughter and then joined her husband.
