Pleasantview – The Goths Part 4

Dina enjoys dancing when Mortimer plays on the piano.


She started having morning sickness. Mortimer kept asking if she was pregnant, but she always said no. She couldn’t be pregnant! She was always careful not to be!


But indeed, she was pregnant. When she found out she couldn’t stop crying. For all the 9 months Mortimer would catch her sobbing. He figured it was the hormone changes.


She finally gave birth to a baby girl. Mortimer named her Bella, after his first wife who had vanished a few years ago.


Dina was like a child at times. She would go find him in his study and start asking for material things she wanted to buy.


He didn’t mind spending money on her, but he wondered what she could do with most of the things he’d buy her. When he got her a bubble blower, she didn’t even play on it.


But he just wanted to make her happy. At least now that Bella was born she wasn’t crying anymore.


Dina even started to like Alexander and she would play with him like a little kid.


Things were going pretty good and Alexander adored his new little sister.


He even painted a painting of his step mother holding Bella.


Meanwhile Mortimer turned Cassandra’s bedroom into his research room. He worked hard on finding cures for certain diseases.

Pleasantview – The Calientes – Part 2

When Brandi came over for a visit, Nina finally talked her into going Downtown with her.


They played Poker for a while, but then got extremely bored.


They ended up going to the night club. There was a few people there so they decided to mingle.


Brandi was really attracted to this guy and when she saw that the blonde girl with the hat wasn’t his girlfriend, she went over and introduced herself. He told her his name was John.


She had fun with him dancing.


Nina tried to meet someone interesting but no one there suited her.


When it was time to come home she couldn’t find Brandi anywhere so she went home alone.


Dina had left and hadn’t brought her deceased husband’s urn. Nina didn’t like having it around, so she moved it to another lot. She could have sworn that after moving it, Michael Bachelor waved at her then vanished.


Nina had seen Aman Sims at the Night Club, and apparently he had seen her too and came over her house the next day.


As soon as they started talking they started disagreeing and arguing. That encounter was cut short.


She did however end up going on a date with Dante. [I forgot his last name. I changed his hairstyle and glasses, however I don’t know how to change townie’s clothes?]


Nina didn’t mind his company, but she sensed that he might be gay.


When she came home from work the following day, Dante had left her a bouquet of roses. He was thanking her for the best date he’d ever had and looking forward to doing it again soon.


She wasn’t interested in dating Dante again, instead she accepted a date with Komei.


Suddenly Dante appeared and freaked out at her for being on a date with someone else. All that time he had been watching her.


She did have a good enough time with Komei, but again she didn’t want to date him again either.


The next day she spent it with Don. She’d had enough dating for now. She was yet to find a good eligible bachelor around town.



I hadn’t played The Sims 2 for a while and decided to play with the Maxis made Sims in Pleasantview. I am actually having a ball. The main reason being that I don’t make up the stories, I let the story unfold by itself. This way I can’t wait to play again, compared to when I made up the stories, I would go blank or get tired of it.
The way I do it is, I let them go on freewill and I try to fulfill their wants. I do use boolprop to fill up their motives at times because I find that too time consuming and boring.
Don’t expect fancy writing and long paragraphs. I keep it short and to the point as best as I can.
Also, I do change their original looks with "change appearance", but I don't use the Facelift / Surgery no matter how ugly they may be. I like to keep their original features, it keeps their character.
EDITED: I will be using Surgery on certain Townies.
I also have a blog for Sims3.

Pleasantview – The Dreamers – Part 2

Darren Dreamer had been grieving his wife’s sudden death for a few years. He was finally ready to move on.


He got the yard ready for the wedding.


On their wedding, Mortimer and Alexander came, but said Dina wasn’t feeling good enough to make it. Cassandra was relieved. Darren’s son, Dirk also came with his wife Lilith. For some reason Goopy showed up, although he isn’t friends to either one of them. Also, the mailman was in the yard and just invited himself. Isn’t that like crashing a wedding?


After the wedding, people got acquainted. So far the weather still looked promising. [I forgot to make her wear a wedding dress ]


Don Lothario did crash the wedding! He wasn’t invited and just walked on the lot after they were married.


Then he started poking and arguing with Mortimer. Cassandra was furious that he would show up, let alone attack her father like that.


She went to get Darren who told her to make him leave before he caused a bigger scene.


She didn’t know what to do after he refused to leave. She didn’t want to have to call the cops, so she decided to just buy him off and give him some money if he promised to leave. She could smell liquor on his breath so she hoped he’d get over this little tantrum when he’d sober up. [There was actually an option in the menu pie to buy him off!]


At first he didn’t want it, then she told him to just take it and leave.


She let out a sigh of relief when he finally left.


Later Dina Caliente showed up. She didn’t even join the guests, she just went right inside.


When Darren went inside, he was surprised to find Don there. Cassandra had told him that he had left.


Since it had started raining outside, all the guests had to go inside. Cassandra felt like she was in a nightmare. First Dina shows up, then she realizes that Don hadn’t even left. What else could go wrong?


The lightning hit their tree, not once, but twice, and caused fires both times.


Finally the guests all left and they were off for their honeymoon.


When they got back home it was sunny. They were ready to start their new life together.


Dina just loves to go around kicking trashcans!


Darren started working on a painting of his new wife. He wanted to surprise her and give it to her as a gift.


Cassandra made some renovations to the house. Nothing major. She didn’t want Darren to feel that she was taking over and changing everything. She just changed the floors in the kitchen.


And the floors in the living room. Added a carpet at the door. Painted the walls a different color, and replaced the sofa and chair. She knew Darren wasn’t after her money, he had even wanted to sign a prenup before they got married, but she had refused.
