Bernie-Rose

Simsrena! The one with the Romance Festival...

Oh yes, you read that right! We went to a Romance Festival! And you know what? There wasn’t a bloody hot tube!  Like, what the hell?! I wanted hot steamy sex in a hot tub surrounded by candles and petals and Serena and Bernie feeling all flirty and… well…

Anyhoo…

The Romance Festival!

So I asked Serena… *cough*… Bernie asked Serena out on a date night and we decided that a trip to Albie’s a bar was in order. I’ve missed my girls and we needed a little R&R so we could regroup and… I’ve honestly lost my mind! 

When we got to the bar, this is what we found. So I obviously said fuck you to the bar! Isn’t it pretty?

Did you spot Bernie and Serena?  ZOOM IT IN REX!

Oh yeah, we see you!

Moving on! 

So when Bernie and Serena managed to stop sucking each others faces (don’t ever stop sucking each others faces!) they made their way over to this weird looking fountain thing. What are these called? Anyway this drink is apparently ‘Sakura Tea’ which will get you in the mood for love…

Pfft!  I really don’t think Bernie and Serena need it, do you?

I mean just look at Bernie throwing rose petals over Serena! 

Oh yeah gurl, you’re playing it right! Oh…

Oh she’s definitely playing it right! Get in there lass!

Our lovely ladies actually stayed out all night even though the festival ended at 1am. They didn’t get home until 5am! You dirty stop outs!! I’m so proud of you both!

Serena walked Bernie back to her flat when they returned home from the festival and obviously Bernie invited Serena to have lots of sex spend the night… or maybe it was the ‘Sakura Tea’. It wasn’t.

^^^^ that image right there is the moment Bernie suggested a little woohoo - aka the time Simsrena were the whole Berena fandom whenever we get a teeny tiny look between them at the minute. Or is that just me? 

We ended… Bernie and Serena (if only it was we! I wouldn’t mind being in the middle of this) ended up the only way one should after attending a Romance Festival…

In bed… having lots of sex…

Missing work…

You guys better not get fired just because you had too much sex!

Bernard Sanders was born in 1941 and raised in a poor Jewish family in Brooklyn. His father, a Polish immigrant who was the only member of his family to survive the Holocaust, was a paint salesman who struggled to make ends meet. According to the New York Times, he slept in the living room with his brother in his family’s one-bedroom apartment in Flatbush. His mother, who always hoped to escape that apartment, died at the age of 46.

Sanders’ taste for attempting long-shot political races on a radical platform emerged early in life.

The story of how Bernie Sanders rose to prominence will make you love him even more 

its so weird how whenever a new person becomes a public favorite (ex. bernie sanders, ruby rose), some people rush to look for receipts on the awful stuff that person has done ONLY so they can post it on tumblr like “THIS is the kind of person yall stay gassing up huh?? i bet yall are gonna ignore this :)”

like ok… thank you for sharing that info, we all needed to know that! but what was the point of being so snarky & assholeish about it?? as if it was common information ???

Albert Brooks as Bernie Rose in the film Drive
Cinematographer: Newton Thomas Sigel
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

Here’s what I’m prepared to offer. You give me the money, the girl is safe. Forever. Nobody knows about her. She’s off the map. I can’t offer you the same. So, this is what I would suggest. We conclude our deal. We’ll shake hands. You start the rest of your life. Any dreams you have, or plans, or hopes for your future… I think you’re going to have to put that on hold. For the rest of your life you’re going to be looking over your shoulder. I’m just telling you this because I want you to know the truth. But the girl is safe.

Berena headcanon post thing
  • who hogs the duvet 

I think Serena hogs the duvet, Bernie kind of lets it happen to begin with because it’s warm and she doesn’t need the cover, but when the weather starts getting cold she thinks tactically… Serena always has the duvet tucked under her chin, so the first night it’s a little chilly Bernie places her head in the crook of Serena’s neck as an almost duvet replacement… Serena lets go of the duvet which Bernie then throws over the both of them, keeping them both snuggled and warm.

  • who texts/rings to check how their day is going 

If the two of them aren’t working the same shift, the one at home will always text throughout the day, and the one at work rings the other at lunchtime. Serena always wants to know the gossip if there is any, and Bernie isn’t very good at finding out the gossip, so she will corner Morven or Fletch before the phone call to get the low down first!

  • who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts 

Bernie. For an example, look no further than the survival pack she gave Serena on her first day back. She is also thoughtful and for Christmas Bernie teamed up with Jason to get Serena a perfect gift. A day wine tasting, followed by a night at the theatre, watching Serena’s favourite musical - Mamma Mia.

  • who gets up first in the morning 

Bernie has always been an early riser, something the army taught her. However since staying at Serena’s she has gotten better at laying in. On the days where she can’t sleep Serena will always get up with her, and they’ll sit on the sofa drinking coffee together.

  • who suggests new things in bed 

Serena… She’s a researcher and likes to try lots of different things….

  • who cries at movies 

Serena for sure. Anything relatively sad will have her crying. Although, if there is a dog involved Bernie is right there next to her sobbing into the box of tissues…

  • who gives unprompted massages 

Serena knows that Bernie has bad days with her back, and she can normally sense it without Bernie even mentioning it. So when they get home from work Serena goes and runs a hot bath for the both of them, and then she’ll light some candles and after the bath she’ll give Bernie a rather long and relaxing massage. Bernie returns the favour with foot rubs whenever Serena makes the decision to wear high heels to work.

  • who fusses over the other when they’re sick 

They are both pretty good, Bernie will take care of Serena, making sure she’s got everything she needs, running to the shop to buy her medication, insisting she goes home from work when all they’re doing is paperwork, then completing said paperwork for Serena so she doesn’t fall behind.

If Bernie admits to being ill, then things must be bad. Serena is a rather good cook so has batches of soup made and frozen. Bernie swears this soup is a magic cure for any illness, and she gets through pints of it when she is poorly.

  • who gets jealous easiest

Serena is protective of Bernie, in the sense that when another woman talks to her, Serena will immediately give this woman the side eye, assessing the situation. 

Bernie was never really jealous, until she found out Serena and Ric were a bit of a thing. Since then whenever they go out together and Ric is there, Bernie will always plant herself between them. Of course, Bernie thinks she’s being subtle, but Serena can see it happening, and silently rolls her eyes every time. 

Neither of them have anything to worry about though, as it is obvious to everyone they only have eyes for each other.

  • who has the most embarrassing taste in music 

Serena is a musicals fan, so it depends what you class as embarrassing. If they are in the car together, Bernie insists on the windows being up the whole journey. She says it’s because she doesn’t want people knowing she’s forced to listen to the Wicked soundtrack, but Serena knows it’s actually because she doesn’t want people knowing she knows every word to the Wicked soundtrack, and sings aloud to her hearts content every time it’s on.

  • who takes the longest to get ready 

They are both about the same. Serena takes longer to put make up on though. 

  • who is the most tidy and organised 

Bernie is organised when it comes to time management, and punctuality. Serena is organised when it comes to a tidy desk, and a tidy house. Serena says you can always tell where Bernie has been last, as she leaves a trail of chaos behind her.

  • who gets most excited about the holidays

They both like Christmas, but Serena wasn’t prepared for the level of cheer Bernie went to. She returned home from work on December the first to lights adorning the front of her house, and Bernie sat on the sofa wearing reindeer antlers, with a big childlike grin spread across her face. They both decorate the tree together, and enjoy a nice chilled Christmas holiday with Jason on Christmas day, and Eleanor, Cameron and Charlotte on boxing day. On new years eve they hosted a massive board game tournament with the whole staff of AAU. A lot of Shiraz was consumed, and alliances were formed between the teams, with spying and cheating occurring. The night ended with everyone crashed out in Serena’s living room, watching the countdown together as a family.

  • who is the big spoon/little spoon

It depends on who has had a bad day. If you’ve had a bad day you are entitled to become the little spoon for the night! So long as they are close together though, they don’t really have a preference. 

  • who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports

Ever since Serena found out Bernie let her win the arm wrestle, she has become adamant that she will beat Bernie at every game they play. Be it noughts and crosses in a boring meeting, or a night long Monopoly game that ended with Serena going to bed in a huff because Bernie beat her again. Of course this mood disappeared when Bernie snuggled up to her in bed and kissed her on the cheek saying they can have a rematch another day.

  • who suggests that they buy a pet 

They would both like a dog, but agreed that their work schedule didn’t quite allow the time needed to look after one at the minute. However, Serena decided to sponsor a penguin in Bernie’s name one night, after a lot of Shiraz and a cute advert.

  • who collects something unusual

Bernie. Every time she goes some place with sand, she will collect a little in a cork top bottle, and label it. She has one from each tour she did with the army, and each holiday she has been on. They hold good and bad memories within them, and Bernie likes to look at them and think about how many grains of sand there are in the world, and how lucky she is to have seen so many places.

  • what couple traditions they have

They make sure they go out for dinner together once every few weeks, just the two of them. Also if either have a big day at work, or a meeting or something, they will make sure the other’s clothes are ironed and hung ready to be worn. On their anniversary they sit together in the peace garden and reminisce about all that has changed within the year. The good and the bad. 

  • what other couple they hang out with 

They don’t really hang out with any couples, Dom and Isaac are a bit young for them. They do make sure they take Morven out for drinks every once in a while though. And they have an AAU family dinner once a month, with Raf, Fletch, Fletch’s kids, and Morven. A roast dinner with all the trimmings. 

  • who made the first move 

Serena. Although Bernie most certainly had feelings for Serena, she didn’t want to risk losing the wonderful friendship, so stayed silent. Serena kissed Bernie, and after a little time contemplating her feelings, realised all she wanted in life was Bernie. The rest is history…

  • who brings flowers home 

Ah. Serena made the mistake of bringing home flowers once for Bernie, a big bouquet of roses. Bernie was grateful and said they were beautiful. However, within an hour, Bernie’s eyes had gone watery and red, and she couldn’t stop sneezing. Serena felt bad, but then Bernie explained that she’d had hay fever her entire life, and flowers were the worst trigger for her! From that moment on, if either wanted to surprise the other, Serena would buy Bernie chocolate, and Bernie would buy Serena a bottle of her favourite Shiraz.
