I never really played with the Pleasantview families. I only played with the Goth and Lothario households when I was bored. So, I just sort of goofed around??
I moved Bella Goth into the Lothario household, and made Don have children with like, two women. The first women died, and the second one was his housekeeper. His oldest son literally goes out partying for the entire night, comes back home, and dies in a bathroom stall. The housekeeper takes her daughter and leaves. Bella gets an afro and a feather dress and becomes a sassy lady who don't need no man.

I've restarted this game many times, and I always play Pleasantview, just for the familiarity of the characters
After learning that just deleting families from the sim bin is bad, I moved families I didn't like into a creepy house in the woods and killed them. Very big graveyard... the story is a weird virus swept in from Strangetown...
Goth: Mortimer invited Dina, Darren and Brandi to the Goth house for the marriage of Don and Cass. However, he hoped that seeing Darren would make Cass realise Don wasn't right for her. But nope, Cass was having none of it. She made out with Don and waited at the altar for him. After checking out Brandi, Don went up too... and left her at the altar. Yay He left, and Cass was a mess, the doctor came as she went into failure. Whilst this was going on Darren and Brandi got to talking and they had hearts for each other (my plan all along, after reading this thread I decided to try them together.)
Mortimer married Dina, conceived a child and abruptly died of flies thanks to boolprop. I aged Alexander up to adult and moved him out (he's really really ugly so I just leave him in the bin.) Dina got her money from the will and moved out leaving Cass in the big house. She's adopted Alegra the cat and is currently running a poker game business from downstairs whilst she lives upstairs. Don't really know what to do with her so haven't played her since I set that all up.
Pleasant: Heh, I had fun here. Daniel didn't want to ruin his marriage and so when Mary Sue got fired from work he kicked Kaylynn out. But, in a twist, she took Lilith with her! Kaylynn didn't like how everyone was poking and tormenting her (seriously, it was Daniel, Mary Sue and Angela). They moved to a little cottage in the woods and Kaylynn set Lilith back on the right path. Lilith still has her hair dyed black to get away from 'perfect' Angela. She hasn't seen Dirk since she grew to an adult and took a job in the Architecture career. Kaylynn works as a prep cook.
After Lilith left, Angela invited Dustin over and one thing led to another... they woohooed and soon after (thanks to Inteen) she gave birth to triplets, Allie, Skip and Dylan. She quit school to look after them, something with Daniel and Mary Sue didn't approve of, but what could they do? Angela is very strong willed. She raised them without Dustin, who unbeknownst to her was bought off by Daniel to stay away.
Daniel and Mary Sue aged to elders and retired, leaving Angela free to get a job in the Dance career. Once she aged to adult and her triplets aged to children she invited Dustin over. Allie doesn't like Dustin, she tormented him and yelled at him for not being there. Angela took her out the room and broke up with Dustin, saying she couldn't trust him anymore. Dustin was heartbroken and left quickly.
Back to Lilith and Kaylynn... the neighbours Don and Landgrabb came over to welcome them and Kaylynn quickly got Don into her bed, leaving her pregnant. (Don is doing it with everyone he comes across). Next day he comes over whilst Kaylynn is at work and oh dear, I see him flirting with Lilith (who had quickly become best friends with Landgrabb). They quickly go to bed and fool around, I changed Liliths aspiration to romance, and uh oh... she's pregnant too! Wonder how Kaylynn is going to react...
Broke: I like Brandi, she has had it rough. With Dustin's help, Beau learnt his skills and quickly aged to a teenager. She then gave birth to Benji and started a home business with the poker table and selling pottery to make ends meet. Dustin is still in the criminal career, whilst Beau helped look after Benji. Once Benji grew up to a child, Brandi started to relax. She kept calling Darren and soon they were talking all the time. He came over and invited her on a date. Dustin and Beau gave Darren their approval and allowed him to sweep Brandi off her feet. He took her to the local park and they cuddled under the stars. He soon proposed an engagement and she happily accepted. They waited until Benji was a teen before marrying, and Brandi went to live with Darren at his art gallery. She knew the three boys would look out for each other, and they had their little business and side jobs. Beau got a job in the Entertainment career whilst Benji stayed at home.
Dreamer: After being invited to the Goth house he realised that Cass would never choose him over Don. This was helped by an instant attraction to Brandi, but he didn't want to intrude on her family life so soon after Skip had died. He was cooped up in his house and wanted to open his own gallery but Dirk didn't want his home open to strangers. So Darren purchased a piece of land and with his meager savings started building his home. He had the main space for his gallery and through a locked door was his kitchen and living area with a bed. He used the bathroom on the gallery side and made sure that side was appealing enough to attract customers. Then he started painting. And painting. Soon he had ten paintings hanging in the gallery and he opened his gallery. The paintings were at 15% above wholesale price and Darren was a very good host. He made sure everyone was ok and was quick to use the cash register. Soon, all the paintings had sold out and he had networked well, getting furnishings at a discounted price. With his new money he added a sofa and his own bathroom.
Once the gallery had reached level four and his home had an upstairs bedroom, he went back to Brandi. Like I said, they talked every day. Once Benji was a teen, Brandi moved in with him and as well as working as a hostess, she helped him run the gallery, and produced three children (at different times) Katy, Kirk and Danny. The gallery made steady money, Darren spent all his time painting, but managed to help teach their children life skills. They're teenagers now, and Darren is an elder. Katy caught the eye of Don and is infatuated with him. She talks to him a lot... hopefully Darren can warn her off, he heard Cass is living alone with a cat.
Caliente: Dina is living by herself. She has a bump but I haven't played her. Need to figure out my plan for her. I was debating about resurrecting Michael since she married her rich Sim and got 100 000 from Mortimer, but don't know how to do that. Nina continues to see Don but I haven't played her properly, only when she is at Dons condo.
Lothario: He still hasn't settled down. He's perfectly happy, but unaware his woohoos with Kaylynn and Lilith have made him a father. He has set his eyes on Katy who is really pretty.
Everyone else: Tina, Lucy and Isiah are teenagers living in a trailer since their parents all died. The Cooke guy is still in the sim bin.
That's all I can remember...

Pleasant:Daniel got caught cheating by Mary-Sue, but because she got fired, he managed to keep the house. I aged him down a bit to fufill his LTW, and he got married to Kaylynn, and had a couple of twin boys, Dante and Vergil, along with a girl, Arwen.
Angela was hit hard by Daniel and Mary-Sue breaking up, and ended up getting an F in school, losing Dustin, becoming enemies with Daniel, and then dying once I got bored of her.
Lilith was able to repair her relationship with Daniel, and got married to Dirk, they've currently got one child, a little girl named Denyce. I've not played them in ages though.
Goth:Cassandra dumped Don, and fell for a CAS sim, Dr. "Horrible" Hal. That wasn't even my doing. Hal just brought her home from work and they had a couple lightning bolts for eachother.
Cassandra had a couple of kids, Landon and Meryl, and adopted a third, Morty Junior.
Alex is currently going steady with Arwen, not done much with the goths lately either.

I've been playing my Pleasantview hoods for a couple months now, following a reset. A lot has happened and I don't know how long it will take to go through it so bare with me lol.
Broke: Dustin and Angela stayed together. They live on the outskirts of town in a trailer and have three kids; Flat, Kaya, and Miguel.
Brandi lives in a suburban home with her townie husband Craig Ray. They have no children together but Jean (third son) lives with them and is still a teen. She is a power leveler in the gamer career track and her husband is a celebrity chef.
Beau and Lucy Broke live in an apartment downtown and have one child, a girl named Gina. They are both pursuing jobs in the culinary arts.
Jean Broke a family sim, but is in love with Melody Tinker, Maria Phelps, and Ella Dreamer. Who's it gonna be?
Caliente: At the beginning of the game, I had Morty and Dina tie the knot. They had one son, Donatello. Shortly after Donatello became a child, Morty died and Cassandra took back the Goth house. She raised her younger half brother and Alexander, while Dina got kicked out. She went to live with Nina in her townhouse with her townie husband, Jess Phelps.
Dina began climbing her way up through the Medical career track, never bothering to call her only son. Instead she assisted Nina in raising her twin daughters, Edna and Maria, following Jess' untimely pool demise.
Edna is a family sim with the lifetime want to reach golden anniversary, Maria is a romance sim with the lifetime want to be a celebrity chef. Edna is going steady with Richard Landgraab and Maria is "going steady" with Antonio Lothario.
Lothario: I changed Don's aspiration to Pleasure and had him marry Kaylynn Langerak. They lived in the old Goth manor, which I had given a makeover. Don stayed in the medical career and Kaylyyn got a job as a teacher. They had two children, Antonio and Capricia. Kaylynn was pregnant with their third but suffered a miscarriage and proceeded to melodramatically drown herself in the pool. Don stayed mostly celibate and single, raising his kids. Then one night he got invited to an outing downtown where he saw his old flame, Dina Caliente. They were married the day after and Dina lived out the rest of her days with Don as an elder. Don still has maybe three days before he kicks the bucket.
Antonio Lothario, another romance sim, is going steady with Maria Phelps.
Capricia Lothario is a popularity sim and is everybody's best friend.
Dreamer: Cassandra eventually married Darren Dreamer, moving herself and her funds to his house. She brought along Donatello and Alexander. Dirk and Alexander were fast friends after Alexander aged up into a teenager, choosing the romance aspiration.
Shortly afterwards, lightning struck a tree.
We all know what happens to sims when there's a--
"ZOMGWTF TREE ON FIRE OMG OMG OMG"
and refuse to leave the site of the burning tree. This happened one summer day when the kids were at school.
They came home orphans.
Alexander, Dirk, and Donatello still had the Goth fortune to live off though, and didn't suffer a bit.
Donatello is now an adult romance sim, living on his own downtown. Alexander lives with his mistress and their one son, Nigel.
Dirk is married to Lilith Pleasant and they have two kids, Ella and Desmond. They are currently still living in the Dreamer home.
Goth: Morty married Dina. Morty died. Cassandra kicked Dina out but kept her younger half brother Donatello. She, Alexander, and Donatello moved in with Darren and Dirk Dreamer. Cassandra and Darren died tragically in a season tree fire, the teens were left to raise Donatello.
Burb: One day, John decided to not be a potato and do something for once in my game. He showed up at Florence Delarosa's flower shop and it was love at first sight. The smell of daisies, ammonia and urine from the bathroom, and one aspiration failure from losing a star was all it took for Florence to seduce him. John left Lucy and Jennifer for her.
Jennifer decided to cut her losses and married none other than the rich playboy Malcolm Landgraab IV. They have twin sons, Richard and Samuel, and live in a ritzy mansion in Bluewater Village.
Pleasant: Mary-Sue got fired, only to find Daniel shagging some weird Polish maid. She locked him in the basement until he died. She later remarried another romance sim, Gabe Pai. He met a similar fate. This repeated until ole Mary-Sue died at the ripe old age of 70 days. There's a basement full of graves that Angela and her family don't know about.
Angela married Dustin because I'm boring.
They have boringuglyslobpotato babies that I hate named Flat, Kaya, and Miguel.
And they still live in the Pleasant house.

I created my own sim and moved him into a large lot and have preceded to build him a massive house. His name is Daniel Poorman (I was doing the poverty challenge but didn't like it so just did a normal legacy instead) and he moved in a townie sim, Ivy, well she met another townie sim named Brenda and they both moved out together. Daniel then got engaged to Nina Caliente and moved her in, they have just given birth to a daughter Anna.
Angela and Lilith Pleasant have grown up into adults. Daniel moved in Kaylynn much to Mary-Sue's disgust and they had a big argument and hated each other for a few days. Kaylynn moved out because of the stress. Mary-Sue forgave Daniel but then he slept with Nina Caliente and she decided enough was enough. Daniel moved out and Lilith went with him even though she was getting on better with her mother, to look after him since he is an elder and they have moved into the property directly opposite the Pleasant house. Angela and Mary-Sue are now living together.
Angela and Lilith's love interests are still teens so their love life is at a standstill at the moment.
Nothing much has happened with the Broke's yet save for Beau growing up to a child and Brandi giving birth to her third boy, Travis.
Kaylynn is a resident at simcity hospital. She lived on her own for a little while before falling in love with Darren Dreamer. They have since gotten married and had twins Jasmine and Amy. Their house is getting a makeover soon.
Brenda and Ivy have been focusing on getting ahead in their careers to fulfill their LTWs but they will be adopting a child soon.
Cassandra and Don got married (I was intending for him to leave her at the altar so she could get over him.) Then a few days later Mortimer married Dina who is very happy with her new house and riches. Don and Mortimer were getting along fine until all of a sudden they were in a fight. Then Cassandra got involved and also started beating up her father. Mortimer has since changed his will leaving everything to Dina he's got 1 day left before he dies. Alex has grown up to a very ugly sim. Unfortunately I don't have University for the plastic surgeon.
That's it so far. Don will be cheating on Cassandra soon though and she will divorce him since I think she needs someone else, though not Darren - he's happy with Kaylynn.

Just re-installed TS2 on my new computer awhile ago, so here's what I've done:
Broke: Hardly touched. Only moved them into the Dreamer's old house.
Caliente: Got both sisters jobs, and Dina engaged to Mortimer.
Dreamer: Darren got engaged to Cassandra, and with Dirk has moved into the Goth house.
Goth: Nothing besides what has been mentioned.
Lothario: Got Don abducted, and he now the father of a alien boy toddler.
Pleasant: Moved the Oldies in with them, got Lilith's grades up and Mary-Sue a few promotions.
Burb: Hardly touched since they have moved in.
Oldie: Moved in with the Pleasants and adopted a toddler, a boy named Justus.
Langerak: Kaylynn married Cyd Roseland, who is pregnant after getting abducted. She just gave birth to Danie'ls kid, who I named Mandy.
Wow.. my game is pretty boring so far! :P

Cassandra Goth was about to get married to her love, Don Lothario. She set up the wedding ceremony in the backyard of the family house, and the guests were invited to attend (her father, her brother, Don Lothario). Cassandra walked down the aisle, toward the wedding arch to meet her husband-to-be. A non-denominational minister started to solemnize the wedding and first asked the bride Cassandra to make a wedding vow. Then, the minister turned toward Don and asked him to make a wedding vow. Don had commitment issues and didn't know if he could meet the demands of being a good husband. He gulped and rejected making the wedding vow. Instead, he ran away from the wedding arch, leaving Cassandra heartbroken and hapless.
John, Jennifer, and Lucy Burb moved into Pleasantview for a quiet life in the suburbs instead of a busy and bustling life in the city. They purchased a cheap house with a two-story window and furnished it. Jennifer couldn't wait to begin her first day of work in Pleasantview! She had gotten a job as a businesswoman, and she was so excited!
After raising a beautiful daughter, the Oldies retreated to a smaller retirement home somewhere in Pleasantview. They furnished the home snugly and hoped that their retirement paychecks could make ends meet.
After ditching Cassandra at the wedding arch, Don Lothario danced joyfully in his kitchen, when the telephone called. It was Nina Caliente, asking for a dip in the tub. Don allowed Nina to come over for a tub party. Since a girl was coming over, Don looked around his house and saw the need to hire a maid to clean up. He contacted the Pleasantview maid service and got Kaylynn on the line. Kaylynn was already Don's girlfriend and agreed to help out Don clean the house up. Nina came over to Don's house with her friend, Mortimer Goth. Don groaned. Don, Nina, and Mortimer went to the hot tub to soak for the day, before Mortimer said that he had to go. Then, Don and Nina woohoo'd in the tub. Not too far away from the incidence, Kaylynn heard the laughter of a woman's orgasm and ran upstairs to check it out, only to find Don and Nina together. Kaylynn became angry and slapped Don's face to express her jealousy toward Don's preference for Nina. Then, in a huff, Kaylynn left the house. Don kissed Nina goodbye.
Nina and Dina Caliente were dancing on top of their condo. Suddenly, the bell rang. Dina ran to answer the door and found that Mortimer Goth was at the doorway. Mortimer said that he just came to visit Dina, because he was completely mesmerized by her. Dina was desperate for money. Her former husband left her with $10,000 and Dina spent it all on the trendiest fashion and cosmetics. Dina looked onto Mortimer as a man that could provide her with loads of fast cash and a happy life. So, Dina initiated the marriage proposal by showing Mortimer the engagement ring and asking him for his hand in marriage. Mortimer gasped and delightfully agreed. The couple was now engaged.
Brandi Broke taught her son Beau how to walk. While her older son Dustin went to school, Brandi decided to teach her Beau how to talk. Life had been a little rough on the Brokes, but Brandi had high hopes that she could make it out of this mess.
Lilith Pleasant went to her sister Angela Pleasant and apologized to Angela. Lilith hoped that Angela would do the same for her, but instead, Angela turned away and went to school. Lilith could not believe that Angela had just walked out of an apology request. Mary-Sue kissed Daniel goodbye before she went her way to work. Daniel danced to the salsa music for a while. Kaylynn Langerak, the housemaid, came over and cleaned the kitchen sink and the bathroom sink. Afterwards, she asked Daniel whether or not he wanted to spend time with her. Daniel agreed. They kissed, her breasts touching his chest. Then, Daniel led Kaylynn to the master bedroom, and together they woohoo'd on the marriage bed. After the woohoo, Daniel offered Kaylynn a live-in maid position. Then, Mary-Sue came home from work with a teary face. She got demoted by her boss to return to work with campaign phones. UGH! Angela and Lilith came home from school. Lilith got lousy grades but decided to do her homework anyway. Not matter what she did, she always got crumby grades and a crumby life. Angela came home with A's and asked Mary-Sue to help her with homework so she could earn an A-pluses next time. Mary-Sue agreed. Hopefully, the homework help could take her mind off her work for a change. Meanwhile, Kaylynn decided to make dinner. Daniel followed.
After paying off all the bills, Darren Dreamer was left with meager simoleons. He worked as a starving artist, barely making enough wages to feed his family. He was thinking about selling his house and renting an apartment, but then, he changed his mind, because this was the house that he and his wife purchased before Dirk was born. Plus, his wife was buried on the property. He was too attached to the house to move away, and he would do anything to survive, even going back to work as a businessman. Darleen's death also affected Dirk's life. For the first couple of months, Dirk did nothing but mourn. Dirk's grades in school also dropped to a D! Dirk was disappointed in himself, but since he had made a new friend at school, whose name was Lilith Pleasant, he thought that his life could turn around... someday. Meanwhile, Darren had been crushing on the rich heiress that lived next door.
To be continued...

thanks for asking. i have all the expansions and a family bin full of characters. let's get started:
the pleasants are aging up nicely. mary-sue's parents (the oldies) are long dead, but they got a dog before they died, so it's ok. daniel and mary-sue had another set of twin daughters, kelsey and rachel. angela and lilith are grown up, college grads & mothers now, we'll get to them later.
cassandra goth never married don lothario. she was too nice a character and he would've been too tied down for my plans, so i broke them up. she went on to marry darren dreamer. they had three kids, daughter destiny and twin sons drake and dwight. both parents are deceased now. dirk is married to lilith pleasant, and using one of twojeff's hacks, they have quadruplets: dylon, dana, donna, and dameon.
brandi broke had her baby boy (named him caleb) and they were forced to move out of their trailer and into an apartment. dustin started shaping up, trying to be a role model for his little brothers. in the complex, brandi met a man, andrew martin, moved to pleasantview from riverblossom hills with his son jacob, daughter-in-law jules (nee o'mackey) and grandson elijah (they've since had a daughter, claire, but she's not important now), along with a few others (rbh had a "tragedy" mwahaha). they're now married, and brandi brought forth another son, harry. dustin is married to angela pleasant, and they have a daughter, sydney, and a son, jake. beau's in college, dating one of tara kat's (pets) daughters.
mr. lothario has had quite a run. he's slept with no less than 10 women. he was a fun challenge. unfortunately for him, he's hit a few snags, namely, his children: isabel caliente (with nina), esperanza ramirez (lisa ramirez (ofb)), and lovino & feliciano lothario (with his first wife heather, nee huffington (uni)). He's up there in years now. His spot as the town casanova is about to be stolen by his neighbor down the road, jonah powers (uni). he was married once, to a woman named heather. they've since divorced.
the burbs had a great family life. after moving with lucy, jennifer and john brought forth 2 more sets of twins, chris and zach, and jordan and mandy. lucy is grown and married herself, to alexander goth, and she has two sons, nathaniel and anthony.
mortmer goth married dina caliente before his death, and she gave him (may or may not be by design >__>) a son, elliot. then (completely by accident) gave him a daughter, virginia. then when alexander came back to town with the intent of taking back the estate (though being hospitable to his stepmother), dina fled back to her sister's (& niece's) house, leaving both her children at goth manor, adopted her maiden name and is waiting out the end of her life.
i could go on, but that's everyone that the game shipped with pleasantview, so i think i'll stop here. maybe post elsewhere :D
update: zach burb married katherine kat (another of tara's daughters). chris burb is engaged to elliot goth. the rest of them moved in with the aging pleasants (soon...).
angela & dustin had another baby, jake.
lucy & alexander had a daughter, elizabeth.
don's now living with his orphaned daughter esperanza.

This is a fun thread. With the hoopla over the latest announcement of The Sims 4 coming out next year, I had a hankering to put aside TS3 for a while and play TS2 again. So I completely restarted Pleasantview (had to dink with the config files to get it to look decent). Here's what's happened so far:
Goth: Cassandra and Don just got married and will live in the Goth manor. She's pregnant. Surprisingly, I've NEVER had these two get married to each other before. Mortimer has woohooed with Dina and she's pregnant, too, but Morty doesn't want to get married again.
Broke: Brandi looks fabulous after a makeover and she and Darren Dreamer have fallen in love. He's the kind man she needs, and he's realized that Cassandra will never love him so he's ready to move on. Haven't done anything with Dustin and Beau yet.
Pleasant: Daniel and Mary-Sue have made up and she's pregnant with twins, but Daniel still has a thing for Kaylynn and practically every other female he meets. Lilith and Angela are getting along too. Angela wants a new boyfriend, not boring ol' Dustin, and Lilith is questioning her sexuality.
Burb: John got a makeover too, and now with shaggy dark brown hair and a well-trimmed beard, he's very handsome. Looks a lot like Ben Affleck's character in "Argo." He and his wife Jennifer are expecting a new baby, but John has a wandering eye too...
Caliente: Pregnant Dina doesn't know yet that Mortimer will never marry her. Nina is being rude to everyone she meets and seems filled with hatred. Not sure what will happen to her.
Oldie: Coral is oblivious to Herb's Romance aspirations. He's putting the moves on women he meets, and might a new son or daughter be in the cards for him as well?
|11th May 2013, 6:46 AM||#510|
Goth: Cassandra married Don, (I was actually going to make her marry Darren but it turns out that Don didn't leave the altar. Lol.) and they stayed in the Goth home for a while, and they moved out. Bella returned, with everyone in the household feeling ecstatic. Alexander is also now a teen, who is already planning to go to college.
Pleasant: Angela and Lilith went to college, and when they graduated, Angela was warmly welcomed by her father but Lilith was welcomed with an insult. During university, Angela and Lilith became the best of friends. Dustin proposed to Angela when they were in the restaurant, in which Angela gladly accepted. Since Angela moved out, the Oldies moved in. Lilith was constantly picked on by her parents. Daniel tried to flirt with Mary-Sue's co-worker, but Mary-Sue was in the lot and she slapped Daniel. Herb kept on attacking Mary-Sue's co-worker (Brenda) and Daniel. Lilith couldn't take it anymore so she moved out to Bluewater (she wanted somewhere far from her parents, but near enough to keep contact with her sister), in which she is married to Dirk and she owns a flower shop.
Meanwhile, Mary-Sue is planning to divorce Daniel. However, she doesn't know that Daniel is also cheating on her with Kaylynn...yet.
Dreamer: Brokenhearted by the fact Cassandra is now married, he decided to move on. Lately, Darren has been having a little crush on Nina.
Broke: The Brokes now live in a small farmhouse. Angela moved on their home following her marraige with Dustin. Brandi gave birth to a baby named Thomas. Dustin bought a little cafe, and he then sold the deed afterwards. Both Dustin and Angela moved out once again and Angela is expecting a baby. Following their move, Dina decided to move in and take care of Brandi's children.
Caliente: Nina just stayed in their home after Dina moved out. Nina moved Michael's urn to the recently built cemetery in Pleasantview. Nina has been considering of buying a cat. (I imagined her to be a cat person, but she isn't addicted to them to the point of being a crazy cat lady xD)
Family bin families: Like I said with the Pleasants, the Oldies moved with them, while the Burbs moved to a small house near the Pleasants.

Well, in a nutshell...
Lothario - Don continued his affairs, romancing a townie named Melissa and one of my CAS Sims called Ellen, but he eventually settled down with Dina Caliente. I figured since they are both sorta interesting and unique looking, I would pair them together and make them have a child. However, they had twins! Leonardo and Cipriani. It wasn't easy raising them, especially when they were toddlers, and due to Don also going on a date with Nina and conceiving a child with her - named Roberto - he went crazy and required the Therapist to help him. However, when the twins aged to children, things looked up for them and their moods were great. Currently, Don is 2 days away from being an elder and Dina is 6 days away, I think. The twin boys are teens now and are the spitting image of their father. However, weirdly though, whenever the boys saw their parents sleeping in the bed together, they would cry. But they didn't react to them kissing. I found it strange but figured it might be to do with Roberto, even though they have not yet met. So to sort out this problem I gave Don and Dina single beds and placed them together. When I send the boys to college they can have their double bed back, haha. Dina is in the Criminal career, and Don still has the Medical profession.
Caliente - Things were same old, same old in the Caliente household, until Dina got the guy the women wanted and settled down with him. However, that didn't stop Nina. After seeing him at the clothing store in Downtown, she asked him on a date and took him back to her place, where they woo-hoo'd and a baby boy, Roberto, was the result. (I hoped she would have a girl, but girls are pretty much a rarity to be born in my game!) She is in the Music career and Roberto is currently in the toddler stage.
Goth - Haven't really played them much, but Alexander is now a teenager, and after Don left Cassandra at the altar, I wasn't really sure what to do with them. I created a Sim called Jarrod Carlson who I wanted to date one of my other sims, however they didn't get along too well and they lacked chemistry. But Cassandra on the other hand was attracted to Jarrod - both had two bolts for each other - and she eventually asked him to marry her. Cassandra is currently pregnant with his child. Mortimer is just doing his own thing, and also returned to the working world, in the Education career.
Pleasant - Again, not played with this family much. In fact, only two days Sim time so far, but I will play them some more. Daniel and Mary-Sue had some woo-hoo and a baby is on the way!
Dreamer - 5 minutes I played as the Dreamers and quickly got bored, I think I'll skip this family.
Broke - Brandi gave birth to a son called Dudlee (named after Dudley Landgrabb xD) who is currently in his baby stage. Dustin and Beau are doing well in school. I don't think I'll pair Brandi with anyone, but things may change when her sons start growing up.
Oldies - They adopted a child called Jennifer.
Burb - John and Jennifer quickly christened their new home with a celebratory woo-hoo, and now they have a second daughter named Imogen, currently still a baby. Lucy is a teenager now. John and Jennifer are also flirting with some other neighbours, so affairs may spark from these two.
Ramaswami - The two have a baby called Anita.
I think that's them all Oh, and the Ottomas. I don't think I'd have the patience to play as them, too large a family for me :P

OK guys this is going to be long
Don married Cassandra and they had a daughter Samantha they then moved out but Cassandra caught him cheating so she moved back in. Same night Mortimer married Dina and they had a son Andrew but soon afterwards Morty died so Dina was raising Alex and Andrew. Nina moved in with Dina but saw Don with Cassandra so moved out then had an affair with the newly-divorced Don so they had a daughter Latasha and then a kid Hilary with NPC before having a boy Anthony with Morty before he kicked the bucket. Mary Sue caught Daniel cheating so she divorced him and moved out. She then found she was pregnant with his child so had a boy Graham. Daniel then married Kaylynn and they have three daughters Gigi Glory Glenn. Angela cheated on Dustin with Dirk and Lilith cheated on Dirk with Dustin. Both were found out and are going steady with their lovers. Don lived a bachelor life and impregnated Jennifer Burb (they had a daughter Sally but John never found out) but then Brandi told him she was pregnant with his child so she moved in. They had a son Lawrence.

Alex grew up and married Dina and they had two children cos Dina worried she wasn't going to get all the fortune (which, upon inheritance, means they didn't have to work!). Dustin grew up, ditched Lilith, married Cassandra and they have a daughter. Angela and Dirk married and had two daughters Callie and Joanne who became the new Angela and Lilith ( Pleasants) They liked their parents until during their teen years Angela got pregnant again The girls both moved out Callie married an NPC but Joanne cheated with him and Callie found out. But she couldn't divorce him because she was pregnant with his child! Yeah, I played them tons. Alex cheated on Dina with Lucy & Lilith who both ended up having kids by him. Dina never cheated and was instead kind of a loner who spent her life raising her kids until she died in a fire. Oops. Andrew moved out, got a house, job and wife and didn't want his inheritance and disowned his family. Alex married a hot young NPC, then forced her to get a job for no reason, cheated with the maid, which was found out but instead she decided to let her move in. The wife was pregnant but it didn't stop Alex from knocking up the maid. Then, shortly after having the baby his other wife died and he kind of had an affair with the maid until he died. She moved out and the children were taken by social services and later adopted by Cassandra. Sorry about the amount but I'll tell you about the rest later once I've played them more.
Andrew lives in a small house with his wife Stefanie and has a great job and a perfect life. Only evil *evil laugh* me decided to wreak havoc by making his wife have an affair only to produce an illegitimate child who she passes off as his and he doesn't know its not his. And it turns out Stefanie's kinda crazy (almost as crazy as Dina) and she dies of starvation cos she hates herself . Only then does Andrew find out the kid's not his and its dad wants nothing to do with it. But every cloud has a silver lining and Andrew's is in the form of Sarah Silvers , a rich, no-nonsense woman who buys them a bigger house and a better life and convinces him to move Stefanie's grave to the community graveyard (the Goth family graveyard kinda creeped Dina out) and they have a daughter and live the high life. Nina decides to experiment with her sexuality and ends up moving in a hot female townie to help raise her kids. Joanne began sleeping around including seducing the mailman who she had a secret child with (without his knowledge). After catching her husband cheating again Callie finally divorced him but was forced to move in with Joanne. She then became attracted to and married the mailman which caused tension in the house causing Joanne to move in with her parents who I kept on elixir to pump out more kids cos they're great parents. Angela has tons of NPC friends and in between maternity leaves juggling a political career. She fixed Joanne up an NPC man they married but she divorced him after finding he was too boring. Currently she's dating. Dirk is near the top of the career ladder. Cassandra died whilst drowning (is there some kind of curse?) when Samantha was in her late teens and Latasha was a child. Dustin mourned a lot but then moved in Lilith. They started up a friendship and woohooed once or twice until Lilith's death. Dustin currently lives with Latasha who wants her dad to find a girlfriend but that probably won't happen.

I restarted my Pleasantview about a month ago and am having SO much fun with again, it might take a while to get through everyone.
Brandi remarried after having her 3rd son (Connor) to a CAS, Charlie Watford. They had a daughter called Lorita. Now they only have Lorita left at home, who is a teenager and dating Niles Lothario. They have progressed to a bungalow rather than the trailer but are still dirt poor. Brandi is very excited about Lorita marrying into the Goth fortune.
Dustin and Angela stayed together and had 2 girls, Rosie and Avril. They moved into a two up two down house after Daniel and Mary-Sue left the house and money to Lilith (Daniel didn’t approve of Dustin). Dustin finally got away from his criminal path and took up a job as an adventurer. Angela was fired from her job and decided to become a stay at home Mum. Angela took up exercising and managed to die of starvation when the girls where at school, leaving Dustin as a single Dad. Rosie is a teenager (popularity like her mum) whilst Avril is waiting to grow up.
Beau started dating Lucy Burb, but it didn’t work out. He moved in with his second girlfriend Georgiana (CAS) when he became an adult, but she got herself electrocuted and died. Third time lucky maybe he has married CAS Rosalie Nathan and they are expecting a baby – though she has already had a miscarriage scare. They have 2 cats and are working really hard so have saved up at least $10000. Beau is in Business and Rosalie is excellent in the medical profession.
Connor has just moved in with Lucy Burb, yep, he stole his big brothers girlfriend. Connor is by far the best looking of the Broke brothers so he had better provide some pretty children.
Once you marry Nina off, she really forgets about being a romance Sim, she married a neighbour called Glenn Cawcutt, who wasn’t too bad looking. They stayed in the Caliente house for a while even when Mortimer moved in. Then Mort and Dina moved out, leaving a big chunk of money for Nina. She bought a lovely house with Glenn and finally (after 3 miscarriages) had a daughter called Annabel. They recently bought a miniature husky called Benjy and Annabel is still a child, Nina and Glenn are both Elders.
Dina is better off under the Goth heading these days.
Mortimer moved in with Dina, bringing Alexander and leaving the Goth Mansion to Cassie. He then moved out with her and Alex into a smallish but pleasant house. Mortimer got Dina pregnant just before he died, she naturally gave birth to twin boys Charlie and George Caliente-Goth. Alexander became a teenager and dated a few different girls whilst Dina dated a neighbour called Alan Millet.
However, one night they just jumped into bed with each other. Just like that (I have autonomous casual romance). Alexander was a teenager at the time. Nothing happened for a while afterwards, except that Mortimer’s furious ghost kept reappearing so many times I had to move him, but eventually they did it again and again and fell in love. Alexander married Dina, so she finally got her claws on the Goth name and money, she was soon an elder though. Alexander took to stargazing and was recently rewarded with a boy he called Quentin.
Charlie and George are very different, Charlie is more a ‘true Goth’ sciency, a little socially awkward but also very rebellious and hard work. He is dating Alexa Dreamer (her and her brother are also hard work). George is much softer and has a family aspiration and a nicer face; he is steadily dating CAS India but has no trouble finding girls who fancy him. Despite an unusual upbringing where their brother also played the role of father, the twins have done really well and grew up with platinum aspirations and A+’s.
When Cassandra was left the Goth mansion it didn’t take her very long to move Don in and then marry him. Don’s secondary aspiration was set to family and it turns out he makes a wonderful, caring father and loyal husband. He hasn’t strayed once. He and Cassie had 2 children, Niles, who was stolen by the Butler as a baby and then returned, and Anastasia. Niles is dating Brandi’s daughter Lorita. Cassandra followed in her father’s footsteps and is close to becoming top of the science career, however neither of her kids are displaying any scientific talent.
Darren Dreamer, fully over his wife’s death, married a CAS, Esmerelda. She was quite a bit younger than him but their twins reached child age before Darren passed on. Dirk moved out the first chance he got, although he like Esme, the twins, Max and Alexa were total handfuls and it was a very stressful time. The twins are now both teenagers and Alexa is dating Charlie Caliente-Goth and Max dating Zoe Burb. Esme is a lonely old woman who desperately wants to find love but is too bitter to attract anyone. All her dates have gone horribly sour.
Dirk moved out and in with slightly older Lilith Pleasant. They got married and after some time tried for a baby, they were in no hurry. Lilith had a boy she called Madison and he is totally adorable and looks just like Dirk. By this time Daniel and Mary-Sue were nearing the end of their lives, when Madison was born they announced that they would like to leave the house to Lilith, so they all moved in. It was lovely having the grandparents around and Madison really benefited from the extra attention. After Mary-Sue died, Lilith and Dirk decided to take the money and move to a nicer house. Daniel and his dog Chester came with them and they had a lovely time until Daniel died.
Mary-Sue and Daniel stayed together and Daniel learnt how to behave himself. They really struggled while the girls were at home to get on, but once they left they got a dog and focussed their attention on him. They got on so much better and totally renewed their love for each other.
John and Jennifer decided to give Pleasantview another chance and their daughter Lucy thrived here. She is now off with her boyfriend Connor but they have 2 more daughters, Zoe, who has recently become a teenager and Sophie, who is a toddler. Definitely no more babies, they are both too old now and they couldn’t afford to keep another child. John desperately hoped for a boy but now he has no hope for his name living on.
I would love to update this again when a little more has happened!!
