Bella and Mortimer reunited. Bella got pregnant with quads, and Mortimer died LITERALLY as she was giving birth.
Cassandra married Daren Dreamer and was pregnant wit her own set of twins at the time, so she was no help. She and Daren had adopted a kitten as well, and were very happy, while Dirk liked his step mum well enough, and went happily off to Uni, where he lived with a bunch of random townie kids and his girlfriend Lilith.
Alexander grew up the main caregiver for his four screaming toddler siblings that I nicknamed the "Gothtuplets". He left for uni eventually (with no friends) leaving his dog Max behind with his bedraggled, unhappy mother. He made no friends at uni either, and severely creeped out a townie girl he had a thing for. (It was genuinely sad. His only friends were two of his little brothers and his dog...)
The Gothtuplets made it to childhood squabbling and vaguely disliking one another while Bella hauled bottles until they all grew up and then ignored them to go find herself a series of new lovers. I was going to have her eventually abandon her children, forcing Alexander to leave Uni to return home to take care of them.
Angela and Lilith meanwhile, fought like feral cats. Lilith fought with everyone at home but never ran away. She made it into uni and happily moved into a messy off-campus house with Dirk.
Angela wound up being the real screw-up of the family: she was living in a dormitory on campus but managed to fall pregnant for her wrong-side-of-the-tracks boyfriend Dustin. They had a daughter and wound up moving into a house off campus. I did manage to have them go home to visit Dustin's mum because she rolled a want to meet her grandchild, but they never went to Angela's parents' house. As far as I know, Daniel and Marysue never even knew they had a grandchild.
Don Lothario dumped Cassandra at the alter (it took her a bit to get over that) but he got played when he went after Kaylynn Langerak. She talked him into letting her move in and she promptly fell pregnant with his first child. This put a serious damper on things because Don was realising slowly but surely that the love of his life was none other than Dina Calliente. He couldn't get her over because of the screaming toddler in his front-room, and he hated the 'settled' life (despite being a wonderful father to his son). He never did manage to get Dina's attention again.
After giving birth Kaylynn realised she didn't love Don at all really, so she started sleeping with Daniel Pleasant while MarySue was out at work. She wound up pregnant with her second child for him, and gave birth to a little ginger son that she named Daniel II (I called him Danny for short). She took the kids and tried moving in with the Pleasants, but MarySue caught them at it one day and finally saw through her husbands story of "charity, and a poor homeless woman with two children". She was suspicious of little Danny from the beginning, but I like to think the thought of another child was legitimately too much for her to bare and she decided to ignore the obvious.
In the end, Daniel turned on Kaylynn for breaking up his marriage and kicked her and her children out, vowing never to reconcile and swearing he didn't care what happened to his son (I interpreted all this from the foot stamping and trashcan kicking). So Kaylynn moved her boys to the seedier part of the city (all she could afford) and was bringing them up alone.
She fell on proper hard times (despite having stolen a TV and several small items from the Pleasant's house before she left). She wound up leaning heavily on Don and fell for him again, rolling the constant want to get engaged to him. Don proved to be a great father, parenting both boys and finally proposing to Kaylynn even though his heart wasn't in it because she wanted it so badly and was the mother of his son.
Kaylynn wound up pregnant again at the end of the round and unfortunately, I did something stupid and managed to lose the hood - but man, it was great. I have plans to recreate it bigger and better very soon.
Mortimer & Dina : Mortimer and Dina got married and had a child named Camilla who just had her teen birthday. I made Mortimer live a little longer than he is supposed to due to elixir of life, but in the last round I let him die, and gave the house to Alexander, Dina and Camilla move to Nina and Don's house.
Cassandra & Darren : Cassandra got pregnant with Don's baby, which I named Isabella (after Bella) who is now a teen, but later Cassandra married Darren before she even knew she was pregnant with ISABELLA, and she also had a boy with Darren named Coleman ( Now a kid).
Alexander & Lucy : Went to uni together, and they just got married but still have no children, the minute Mortimer died Alexander kicked Dina and Camilla out.
Don & Nina : Don got Cassandra pregnant and broke up with her, Don also got Nina pregnant as well and she had twins named Jeanette and John (Now teens) but Nina never told him until they were kids, Don meanwhile married Kaylynn Landgreak and had a daughter Kate with her ( Now a kid ). but dumped her later and moved in with Nina after he found out he had kids with her, Don then turned into a werewolf (Storyline-wise he was cursed for his womanizing ways.) He built a house with Nina for his kids with her and Kate , which also had space for Dina and Camilla, Don and Nina are now engaged but not married, Don was cured of Lycantheropy due to him giving up his womanizing ways.
Kaylynn Landgreak: Married Don Lothario, and had Kate with him and also had twins with Daniel Pleasant named Kendra and Kale, but died shortly after Don broke up with her, causing the social worker to take the twins.
Daniel & Mary-Sue : (Now elders), they adopted Daniel's kids with Kaylynn after her death, and are using to elixir of life to live at least until the twins are teens, which now they are toddlers, but little does Mary-Sue know those twins are Daniel's biological children with Kaylynn.

For more info and all pics please see "Pleasantview Epic Challenge" http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=582636
I gave her a couple of cats, gave the cats jobs, and let Nina max out her skills at home. It was totally weird, but actually quite fun.
Dreamer: Cassandra rebounded on Darren, eventually married and moved in. Dirk went to college, joined a fraternity, studying to become a doctor. Cassandra and Darren had a baby girl (Dendra now a teen), and then had a set of baby girl Twins (Deyna and Deidra). Cass is still a scientist, Darren is a stay-at-home dad and painter. They traded rooms so the girls get the bigger room on the second floor, and Cass and Darren have converted Dirk's room into their room.
Caliente: Dina married Mortimer, he died of old age, and produced an heir. Nina got pregnant by Don, they have a girl (child now) named Mara. Nina is in the military, though she was already discharged/fired once.
Lothario: Haven't played him much. He's going to go on vacation and try to sleep with all the tourists.
Pleasant: Mary-Sue is now a Judge or Senator or whatever. Daniel is a top of the athlete track. Not only did he have an affair with the maid, but he also had an affair with their gardener, and Heather Huffington from University. Mary Sue is also having an affair, but with the Rich Male Sim from Night Life. Neither of them actually "caught" each other, until one day Mary-Sue caught him with the gardener. Daniel moved out into a trailer by the Brokes. Mary-Sue still has the house. Now every time the gardener shows up when Mary-Sue is home, she creeps around like a burglar. Maybe she's stealing things now.
Her boy toy moved in. Turns out he's a professional party guest, brought in $70k, and Day 1 of Adult. Mary-Sue is about to transition to Elder. Angela and Lilith still hate each other. Went to college with Dustin Broke, Dirk Dreamer, David Ottomas (I moved the Ottomases from O4B into Pleasantview), and three Townie teens. Angela joined a sorority, one of her sorority sisters is sleeping with her dad. Lilith is still dating Dirk.
Burb: John is a doctor. Jennifer is a thief. Lucy is a teenager. She's into athletics and mechanics. Nothing really going on there yet.
Oldie: Moved in, never really played much.
Broke: Brandi named her new son Brandon. Dustin got his life together, helped teach Brandon the basics as a toddler. Beau was stuck as the neglected middle child again. Brandi started making flowers after selling the recliner and something else to make enough money for the florist station, a table, display table, counter, and register. Dustin helped run the register or sell while Brandi made flowers. They weren't open every day, but it was enough to get by. Brandi met a customer, a townie named Kennedy Cox. They fell in love at first sight, and they got married rather quickly since Brandi ended up pregnant again. Kennedy added some funds to the house. I forget what career Kennedy is, but he's got a silver florist badge and a bronze register badge so that was pretty cool! Brandon just grew up to a teenager, Dustin is in college, Beau is about to go to college. Brandi and Kennedy had a son, his name is Frank Cox. They still live in the trailer, but was able to buy some better stuff. They don't make a lot from the florist stand yet, but it's enough to pay the bills and save for better items.
I also moved in the Ottomases and Ramaswarmi and Traveler families from the EPs I have:
Ottomases: The father is in the journalist field. They have a girl child Sharla, a teen boy David, and a toddler named Tommy. Samantha is pregnant, and her Elder mother lives with them. Samantha is a teacher, Elder mother is substitute teacher. I moved them into a larger house, so they were pretty much house rich and cash poor. Cheap furniture for everyone! Anyway, Samantha of course had twins, a boy and a girl (Renly and Reinla). By the time the twins and Tommy grew up to children (the twins and Tommy are only a day apart, so they're in the same life cycles), Elder mother died of old age. But David was old enough to baby sit after school, and so was Sharla. David went to college, Sharla took over babysitting duties until the parents get home. She's a teen now and trying to date.
Ramaswarmi: Sanjay is at top of music career, Priya is top of media. They have a teenaged daughter who is a creative prodigy also (thanks to musical instruments and Dad being a Rock God). Also top of Logic and pretty high in Charisma. All this kid did was play chess and play piano for fun, and play with that damned rabbit as a toddler. They're doing pretty well. Everyone wants to be their friends. My local celebrity family.
Traveler: Mom is a chef, Dad is... uh... I forgot. An Adventurer, maybe? Tina is a teenager now. She and Lucy Burb are besties. Nothing really exciting there.
Lothario: Don married a townie, Andrea something, and flirted with every female in town. There was a lot of fighting, and she eventually kicked him out and found someone better.
Caliente: Dina married Darren Dreamer and had two gorgeous children, Tariq and Nighat (named for Dina's grandparents). Nina had a bizarre glitch when I changed her aspiration to Knowledge, and thereafter could not interact with any male Sim, or even move when a male Sim was on the lot -- I call it the "Vow of Chastity Glitch". She became a recluse with just her two cats for company, and this Glitched Nina remains one of my favourite Sims.
Broke: Dustin married Meadow Thayer, got a great job, and had a whole bunch of children. The two younger boys did okay for themselves, too, but Brandi never remarried.
Pleasant: Lilith ran away and came home just in time to grow up. I forget who she married (it's been years since I played them). Angela married Orlando Centowski and had a ten-day pregnancy, which on the bright side reduced the number of kids she would otherwise have had (but is also a major reason why I've never replayed Pleasantview -- I seem to have a very glitchy version).
Burbs: The poor Burbs; it was so tragic and completely unintended. They were so proud when Lucy was the first Pleasantvillian to attend university...and then she and her friend Tosha were both killed, in their Sophomore year, by a freak fire caused by a lightning strike. (They'd also previously lost custody of her and her little sister when I answered the door and was kept talking by some Jehovah's Witnesses: I hadn't paused the game and free will was turned off, so I got back to starving parents and no children -- but the cat was fine, because cats always have free will so it could demand to be fed! Since leaving them running without free will for 20 minutes wasn't part of game play, I exited without saving, but it seems they were destined to lose Lucy eventually.)
Edited to add: Oops -- forgot I'd already posted once in here! Oh well, more detail on the other families! :D
Hmm. Some of my most memorable highlights with my favorites:
Don Lothario was once scorned and hated by nearly every female sim he ever had good times with after going downtown with all his lovers and fiancee at once. He got dumped by Cassandra and cried and cried. He got abducted by aliens soon after and had a son named Sasha (haha). His home was notorious for roaches considering all the trash tippings, but Don, Sasha, and the Nanny lived a decent life. Don grappled with being a Romance sim who was hated by all the ladies and learning how to raise a child. He liked being a father, and had a good relationship with Sasha, until I accidentally deleted everything.
Cassandra I've had break up with Don at least three times. Once, she got pregnant with him and never went through with it, despite her being a family sim. She'd moved in with Don before they decided to marry and they realized how incompatible they were after lots of arguing. Cassandra took a morning after pill after a risky woohoo. Don threw a house party since the wedding date was getting closer, and then caught Cassandra romantically hugging Darren outside. Needless to say, they broke up. I can't remember if the drama helped the party score. Funnily enough, Don had stayed faithful to her that plathrough, I believe.
Cassandra was also jilted another playthrough. Don had tried to remain faithful, but in the end his feet were too cold, and he had a one night stand with Nina, who he had three bolts with. The next morning at the wedding he ran, leaving Cassandra. She was heartbroken, and pregnant, as I later learned. She eventually moved out of her family's home into a small apartment after giving birth to triplets :O Being very family oriented, Mortimer and Alex visited often, crowded though it was. She was a very hard worker. The nanny and Don were always at the apartment looking after the triplets while Cassandra worked during the day-Don, because he loved the kids. He had high relationships with all of them and endured all of Cassandra's arguing when she got home-he still loved her, after all, strangely enough. He also had a daughter with Nina, but they never officially got together, and he moved out of her house (after moving in with her because he got kicked out of the Goth manor and had nowhere to go) after their daughter, Aviva, was born, because he could finally stand on his own two feet financially. They both preferred a casual romantic relationship and their single statuses. Cassandra later started woohoo'ing with Vidcund. In another memorable playthrough, she left Don after finding him in bed with Nina, and met a custom sim named Johnny Winters. Don, despite his fault in their break-up, was still not over her, and at Cassie's wedding he got into a fight with Johnny! It really upped the party score! Later, Cassandra and Johnny, who were very happy together, had surprise quadruplets they named January, Belle, Valentine, and Edmund They were one of my favorite families for Cassie, besides the time she and Don had triplets and she lived in that puny apartment.
Alexander was once very into ballet and his one true hobby was music and dance. His best friend was the family cat named Alegra. He had an unrequited three-bolt love for Tara DeBeteau.
Mortimer once started up a bug collection and aspired to have a museum. Another time Bella actually returned and he placed her into an institute instead of welcoming her back as his wife.
As for the Calientes, Dina has married Mortimer almost every single time. The first two times I played her as snobby. As soon as Mortimer died she was out fishing for new beaus and leaving her son Simon to be cared for by Alexander and the butler. She had diaper changing fears, after all and she wasn't getting any younger! She didn't get along with Cassandra and they disliked each other immensely. Dina also had no time for Don's affections. He didn't have enough simoleons to his name to be on her radar. So she friend-zoned him and told Nina to go crazy. Later, I played her as more sincere. She fell in love with Mortimer, wanted to go on dream dates with him, and worked to have good relationships with Cassie and Alexander. She and Mortimer had two daughters named Priscilla and Lydia, and they were some of the most adorable sim children I've ever had. I'm sad I never extracted them.
Nina once had a daughter with Don, Aviva, in that playthrough also had another daughter with Cornwall Capp who she named Nighat after her mother. She also hopped into bed with Daniel Pleasant after he followed her around at the grocery store-at his sister's new house, in her bed no less, the day after Daniel had left Mary Sue. She worked in a custom Model career another playthrough. That's about it for Nina. I haven't done much with her, except for that one playthrough where she had two daughters.
Brandi tried opening a salon in her home once. It didn't go so well her opening day and she made someone look like a clown. Another time, a genie lamp was left on her doorstep not long after Beau aged up, and Skip was wished back to life. Brandi gave birth to triplets. Skip came back not really interested in being with Brandi, or his children, tragically.
Mary Sue and Daniel almost always get divorced. One time Lilith and Angela actually repaired their relationship, and that was great. Another time Angela died in a kitchen fire making breakfast and Lillith just kept smustling in the bathroom. Mary Sue tried to work on her relationship with her daughters, especially Lilith, since that relationship was the most estranged. She kicked Daniel out and met Reagan Capp, who'd also recently divorced after she met her husband's love child with Nina Caliente. They became BFFs, then girlfriends. A real power couple, those two.

Thank boolprop of Genetic Merger cheats.
This sounds interesting
Peace, Harmony & Balance... Libra is Love..
Caliente: Dina moved out and married Mortimer. Nina lives with her twin toddlers. She wants to complete her goals of woohooing 10 male sims.
Dreamer: Darren and Dirk are so boring. Darren took out a loan, so do some home repairs. For some reason, he doesn't seem to want to marry Cassandra.
Broke: Brandi is due to get married to a tourist man. Dustin is an adult now. Beau is focusing on his school work. All of them are trying not to go crazy. Brandi hopes her new love can rescue them.
Goth: Mortimer is dead, and Dina owns 100% of the Goth's estate. Before Mort died, he had Quadruplets with Dina. Dina wants to expand the Goth's estate by investing in real estate, once the kids are older.
Goth 2: After leaving the Goth's Manor, due to Mort marrying Dina, Cassandra, Bella, and Alex now live with each other. Bella is having fun woohooing the neighborhood men. Alex is unsure what to do as an adult. Cass has secretly been depressed, about her father, and currently pregnant by Darren.
Pleasants: Mary-Sue divorced Daniel, and is now an elder. She's having a little affair with her co-worker, Ramir Patel. The twins are friends, and are soon due to become adults. Life has been going great for them. Can't say the same for Daniel.
Pleasants 2: Daniel lost his job, and is now over his head in debt. Child Support is killing him. Other than the twins, he has a child with Sharon Wirth. Instead of worrying about bills, he wants to woohoo with 20 sims.
So far he's got two teens and two children. Here's a nice little link to some pictures of the teens. Both look really nice. Hemlock Pleasant (Family) is rebellious and angsty because of her origins, while William Goth (Popularity) is more relaxed. Both have the secondary aspiration of romance.
Was for a while very stumped on what to do with Dina, since she's my least favourite character in Pleasantview, last time I lucked out with her having a life time want that allowed me to re-work her into a career woman, this time however, it just didn't seem right.
Plus she kept rolling want for having a baby...
In the end I have her had a one-night stand with Chester Gieke which led to her becoming pregnant. Haven't played her since and hope I come up with something once her household rolls around again.
Eldon Hick (grown) lives with his mama and the dogs, but is presently trying to interest Frida Goth in the idea of matrimony-when he's not woohooing with Jocasta Bachelor (yes, Bella's mom-and Michael's as well) on the side.
Where Victor Goth is the town bully and he's not appreciating Eldon's wooing of his daughter. The dogs don't really like her, either.
I'm having fun, for sure.
Receptacle Refugee & Resident Polar Bear
"Get out of my way, young'un, I'm a ninja!"
Caliente: Nina died from food poisoning. The twins are now children and live with their father. They have no relationship with Dina, or her children.
Dreamer: Darren and Dirk are still boring. Dirk is now an adult. He can't wait to start his new job, so he can help with the bills. Darren hasn't seen his children with Cassandra.
Broke: Brandi's life is going great. She's still poor, but now she's married to a man who is crazy about her. She's expecting her fourth child. Dustin works, as Beau lays around the house.
Goth: Dina's real estate business is really slow. There aren't the many sims that need a 3-story house. However, she lives comfortably, and doesn't want a full-time job. The Quadruplets are now teens. I just realize how much they look like Dina. Mortimer contacts them from the afterlife, as his ghost constantly scares them.
Goth 2: Cassandra had twins by Darren. She wants another baby, but I'm not letting that happen, since she's not in a real relationship. She started a home business selling a reinvention of her father's Elixir of Life potion. Business is booming. Cassandra just need to work the cash register better.
Pleasants: The twins have become boring as they have become workaholics. I'm going to keep Mary-Sue alive until, she has at least one grandchild. I think she deserves it. I just wish the twins would hurry up and have children.
Pleasants 2: Daniel is two days from dying. His last days will be hell, as he's the poorest sim in SimCity.
I finally have a Simblr. LittleBitSims

Darren resurrected his late wife Darleen and had a second child. Darren is now an elder and the house is now completely filled with paintings, pottery and flowers. Darren wanted six grandchildren and is happy that Dirk and Lilith decided to keep all their babies.
The Burb family
John convinced Jennifer to have another baby and they had twins who are now child age. Nothing big happening for them besides that.
The Oldie family
Coral disappeared and Herb had an affair with an older sim called Tulle who eventually died. He now has a dog and is quite old. No memory of either Coral or Tulle dying.
I think I might have the highest posts per day on MTS.
I recently restarted playing it, and here's the progress so far.
Caliente: I made Nina meet a lot of sims so that she could have a lot of love interests, and I was thinking I would make her move in with Don, but she ended up triple bolting with one of those randoms. I moved him in and she ended up getting pregnant. As the sisters' bios hint that Nina is the brains behind Dina's actions, I figured it was probably Nina's idea to get Dina to marry Mortimer so that they could take the Goth funds and share them. So I made Dina propose to Mortimer, which she somehow got a bad memory from. I also made the both of them get jobs and focus on their interests. Nina is currently about to give birth and works in the Culinary career. Dina is in the Show Business career.
Goth: Cassandra got left at the altar by Don. I had often made her charm Darren after her heartbreak in my previous games, but this time I tried something new and made her try her chance with different sims. In the end she fell in love with policewoman Demi Love. At this point she was already over Don, and they actually became friends somehow.
Mortimer married Dina and took her in, but after about two days he ended up dying in a fire. I know most people play Dina as a scheming gold digger, but she was genuinely sad over his death and she got along well with Cass and Alex, so I changed things up a bit and decided Nina would be the one who had schemed his demise. Dina, being the fortune sim she is, decided not to share her money with Nina, and got to investing which made the Goths richer than ever. She got really successful in her career, fell for a married guy, and is currently trying to steal Nina's boyfriend. She and her sister really hate each other.
Alex is a teen and he is very skilled in creativity due to always playing piano, so I might make him a musician instead of being interested in science as his bio hinted. He fell for a townie he brought home from school, but we'll see if that changes.
Lothario: He is trying to have 20 loves at the same time, so he is trying to make every girl he meets fall for him (except Cassandra, whom he ended up being friends with after all that time she spent stealing his newspapers, and some other sims he finds unattractive.) He ended up making a vampire fall for him and got bitten, which seemed a lot of fun because he was a doctor, but I gave up and cured him after a while of not being able to go out during daytime.
Pleasant: Mary Sue caught Daniel cheating, but after making him sleep on the couch for a while, she and him both kept rolling wants to talk to each other so I repaired their relationship since they were also attracted to one another.
Lilith, whom everyone thought of as a problem child, started to get along with her mother and grandma, though she still hates her father and sister. Angela, whom everybody thought was the pride and joy of the family, ended up getting pregnant by Dustin. She had to leave for college after giving birth, along with Lilith, so Daniel and Mary Sue are taking care of the baby. Angela is currently in a greek house and a top student while Lilith lives in a dorm and wants to form a band.
Broke: Brandi became an elementary school teacher but had to quit after giving birth to Brandon. She had become friends with Malcolm Landgraab who loaned her some money so that she could open a bakery. It isn't very successful yet, but she paid the money back, and she wants to focus on making it better after she sends her kids off to college. She fell for Darren Dreamer who frequented her bakery. Dustin got fired because of his grades, and decided to work harder to provide for his siblings and newborn son. He studied hard and got into college, following Angela, though he's very poor and might have to drop out. Beau and Brandon maxed the creativity skill somehow.
Dreamer: Darren is in love with Brandi and they both want to get married, but I'm making them wait until the kids are all grown up. Dirk is an overachiever and got into private school - he will leave for college soon. They adopted a cat, and Darren is currently working as a nurse.
They were very lonely so they decided to adopt another child and adopted a boy named Alan. He made friends one of the stray cats in town, so they took her in as well. They frequently invite Mary Sue and her family over, and get along along with them well. Herb is always trying to flirt with women, but they never give him attention.
In my Pleasantview, Bella is back, so I made her get a big house with Mortimer's funds before they had split up. She's currently romancing up a few sims including John Burb and Don Lothario, and also some girl townies. She is a private agent and very good at her job. She got pregnant a few times but miscarriaged, and in the end she decided to adopt. Her daughter gets along well with almost all kids in town, but she especially likes the Oldie couple's son.
John is cheating on Jennifer with Bella, but he doesn't want to ruin his family for her. He still loves Jennifer. Jennifer is oblivious to all of this and focuses on her career. Their daughter Lucy ended up falling for one of the Bluewater townies - that toymaker family's daughter, whatever her name is.

But no for real, I generally pick up the game (often during holidays) and play for a week non-stop and then put it down again for a month or even longer and focus on other things.
Either way, since I also got a new computer recently I decided to load Pleasantview up once again (for literally the 100th time probably) and play around a bit. I only completed one rotation so far, but it's not going too shabby. I did actually go ahead and place down some additional buildings (apartments, community, I also renovated many of the community lots), I also placed down Tara Kat's house and the Goodie family, but no other family bin families, save the Burbs and Oldies. I may place some down later, but not for now.
Usually I'd start off with the Goths, but this time I decided to begin with the Brokes first - I've always loved Brandi and playing them, so I decided: why not? Beau grew up into a child and Brandi had twins - one girl and one boy - whom I named Marilyn and Tom. Both have also just aged up into children. As the house became super super crowded and Brandi wasn't doing so well on money (Dustin also got fired from his job because of bad grades as I had him help out with teaching both Beau's and the toddlers' skills), I decided to find Brandi a husband, he turned out to be a police officer, Dorian Kauker. Now frankly, he didn't bring in a whole lot of cash (a whopping Â§1,000!), but as his skills are rather good, I stayed true to his "previous self" and got him a job in Law Enforcement. The house is still super crowded, to the point that Dustin's room has been turned into a bedroom for 4 kids with bunk beds. But as Dorian will be earning enough money to sustain the household, I'm going to be building a second floor and expanding the house soon.
Once I was done with the Brokes, I did still move onto the Goths as I couldn't resist! *shrug*
Alright so right off the bat, I did not get Cassandra and Don married, because there's no way they match. They had some chemistry in-game but "Don Goth" (or "Cassandra Lothario") has always been a no-no for me, that's not going to happen. Because I had not started with the Goths and had been on community lots where both Cassandra and Don had appeared, I was worried Don might accept the marriage if I used the altar, as such I just had Cassandra break up with Don on the spot - this in turn meant she didn't go into aspiration failure because of rejection. (I could have cheated to bring down their relationship, but frankly I didn't feel like it.) For storytelling purposes I'll pretend that Don rejected the marriage though. More often than not I'd get Mortimer and Dina together, but not this game. I felt like being revolutionary! So Mortimer got married to...none other than Bella Goth, I guess you could say re-married but oh well. I am using the cleaned up templates so there's that. All in all, the Goths haven't really been super duper eventful. Alexander grew up to a teen, Cassandra moved out, but Bella and Mortimer are still sharing their endless love for each other. I don't plan on getting Bella pregnant or anything, I feel like that's way out of line right now. I mainly just had them do "fun" stuff like go on a few dates Downtown and on a vacation to Twikkii Island. Alexander begun dating Lucy Burb after she grew up to a teen as well, more on that later though. (I have not yet played moved out Cassandra, but I will before I start the next rotation!)
From the Goths I moved onto the Pleasants. The Pleasants have always been such a mixture for me, more often than not I decide to have Daniel ditch Mary-Sue for Kaylynn, but this time I decided to have Daniel break up with Kaylynn and focus on his relationship with Mary-Sue. Angela and Lilith have been fighting a lot less lately, and all four of the house have agreed to some sort of "mutual friendship", thus Lilith also gets along better with their parents, but nowhere near as good as Angela and I will have Lilith argue with her parents quite a lot. Either way the Pleasant household is a lot more...well, pleasant these days. Angela is still dating Dustin and Lilith is dating Dirk, and I have no plans to break them up at this time (often I will do the "switch" but I decided to not do it this game, also seeing that Lilith has better chemistry with Dirk (2 bolts) than with Dustin (no bolts), Angela has 1 bolt with both though). To twist things up a bit though, I decided to adopt another child to the family. The backstory could be something like... Because Mary-Sue was adopted, she wanted to give her own share of kindness to kids in need and her and Daniel agreed to adopt a child in need. Because the Pleasants only had twin girls, I decided to get a boy who I named Oliver (his original name was Phoenix though, sometimes I feel like I should have kept it) - I also adopted him as a child, seeing as both Daniel and Mary-Sue will be getting old pretty soon, it's probably a good idea to not have them raise another baby.
I then moved on to the Calientes. I made sure there was no shortage of drama in this household, Dina was devastated that Mortimer dumped her after "finding" Bella. Nina invited over Don and they got a bit frisky in the hot tub, and it was definitely not on purpose that I had Dina watch over. *smirk* After that, Dina was furious at Don, Nina, Mortimer as well as Bella - I'd say she was going through a midlife crisis. I also managed to get Nina pregnant from her fling with Don in the hot tub, and she ended up giving birth to a boy I named Rodrigo. For whatever reason, Dina wouldn't leave Rodrigo alone and kept trying to take him out of his crib, playing with with him, feeding him, etc. Rodrigo grew up to a toddler and became good friends with both Dina and Nina. The sisters still disliked each other because of the entire affair with Don, however they were no longer enemies and have mended their relationship a bit. In a complete twist, I had Dina take up an interest in Darren Dreamer - a pairing I had never tried before. Because Dina had been so obsessed with Rodrigo and because of her "midlife crisis," I decided to change her aspiration from Fortune to Family, after which a pairing with Darren seemed like a great fit to me, not to mention it even keeps the name pattern!
I moved onto Don Lothario, I had him ask Nina to move in, which she did. I debated if Rodrigo should also move in with Nina, but in the end I decided not to take him, as Dina had shown such care toward him and frankly Nina and Don don't really seem like the ideal parents. Don is committing to Nina, but I'm not going to get them married or even engaged, as I don't think that's what they'd want. Don still has flings with Kaylynn, and Nina is "okay" with that. I've been considering getting a mod that gets rid of jealousy and have Kaylynn also move in with Don and Nina for like a "threesome" relationship, but I'm not sure on that yet. Overall I didn't really do too much with Don and Nina at the first rotation, I had them throw a bunch of parties in their house but that was pretty much it.
When I got to the Dreamers, Darren still had feelings for Cassandra, but I really decided to work on his relationship with Dina, eventually the two got engaged at a Downtown restaurant and also married not too long after at a wedding party in the Dreamers' backyard. This now meant that the Caliente condo had been left empty, as both Nina and Dina had moved out. Dina and Rodrigo both moved into Darren's house, Rodrigo was basically Dina's son at this point. Dina and Darren also had another son, who I named Derek. Next rotation, I'm hoping to get a daughter as well but we'll see. Dirk and Lilith have gone on a few dates, and Darren spends his time painting his newfound family. Dina didn't bring in too much money to the household, but it was enough to get the bills paid and with Dina and Dirk both having jobs and also from selling Darren's artwork, they can make enough money to pay the bills. I don't really try to get Dina advanced too much in her job as a chef, she's currently a Head Chef, I don't think I'll progress her too much further from here, at least not for now, just to keep an element of realism in the game.
This was all of the placed-down families, so then I moved on to the Burbs who are living in an apartment I placed near Woodland Park. Jennifer has been really focused on her job, and her and John's romance has dwindled (partly due to my intent as well), I don't think I'm going to break them up or anything, but for now they're not too much in love. In fact, Jennifer has been rejecting some of John's approaches recently. Lucy grew into a teenager and I've had her begin dating Alexander Goth (as I mentioned earlier). Overall I find the Burbs probably the least interesting family to play so I mainly fast-forwarded through them, without doing much. Maybe I'll find some sort of spark later, but for now it'll be as it is.
For the Oldies, I decided to move them and the Goodies together into one house (130 Sim Lane) and I'm kind of playing it as a retirement home. Once some other elders appear (I've also thought about making some custom CAS sims or aging up some townies and moving them in), I might move in more. There's 3 bedrooms in the house, one of which is empty at the moment, so it could fit a few more elders. I've really had them focusing on building skills and talent badges, and eventually I'd want to start a home business on the lot.
As for Tara Kat, well, I've had her adopt 2 more cats (named Misha and Myra), and she also got a job in journalism. She mostly spends her days playing with the cats, if she's not at work. Ideally, I'm working towards earning her enough money to buy out the pet store I built and start a business there. For now that's a community lot though. I've also experimented with flirting a bit, but I haven't really found anyone fitting for her for now, so she really is just the crazy cat lady of Pleasantview!
I'll be playing more hopefully soon, but I want to take off enough time to play an entire rotation in the timespan of as few days as possible and not stretch the gameplay out too much as otherwise I'll forget what I'd been doing. I had holidays and I was also sick with the flu so I had enough time to do this all, but now that I'm back in school, not so much! Either way, this has been a pretty long post I spent basically an hour writing on. I'll try to get some screenshots soon as well, I'm just usually not the kind of person to take them.
I burned them all...
Death to Default sims!!! Death to townies!!!! Death to default Neigborhoods!!!
