Last time, Dirk left for University (taking his fortune sims wants with him). Darren wanted to spend time with Cass and gain skill points. That’s basically it.
Welcome to our first visit to university. I did a tour already and graduated a lot of teen townies. They were then given jobs and turned into downtownies or back to townies, just to get rid of them all. I doubt we will see them again, but it just progresses the town a bit.
Last time, Dina and Mortimer married, then quickly divorced when he found out that she was carrying Don’s baby. Dina and Violet now live in an empty apartment, broke.
Last time, Daniel got busted with Kaylynn. Dan and Mary-Sue put their differences aside long enough to hang out with the girls so that they could at least attempt to get over their mad. Both girls learned to study. Mary-Sue told Dustin to leave her daughter alone, which is probably why Angela chased him around during his house time.
We are back with the Dreamer’s. Last time, Darren only wanted Cass and skill points and painting. Dirk had normal buy me wants.
Previously, Brandi toddler trained Beau in her spare time, gave birth to Brandon and tried to be a good mom to Dustin. Dustin and Angela are a thing, of course. Dustin helps out Beau with learning to talk and later his homework. Brandon was born at the end of the chapter.
We arrive at the lot and find Don just standing at the entrance. I think he got lost at work when we left last time, the reason no one could find him to invite him over. After Mary-Sue invited over the neighbors (all 30 of them) and he was found.
Sadly, he did something in that 3 minutes before Mary-Sue could send everyone home. Cassandra and Morimer are both furious with him. Cass currently wants to have a baby and be best friends with Daniel Pleasant (mirroring his want when we left last round) and to play with Daniel.
Mortimer: I just knew that jerk was no good for my girl.
Cassandra wants new clothes, but she is happy to settle for a small makeover instead.
It’s lonely being a Goth child. Alex really wants to call someone on the phone, but he has no one to call. It’s sad really.
Most times, Alex can be found playing all alone up in his room.
Mortimer wants his job back in Science and a telescope worth $2k. Nothing interesting rolled after that, so he is taking Alexander to find some friends…on a school night.
I’m using a 2nd aspiration generator I found on PleasantSims and Mortimer rolled Family. He now wants to be best friends with Alex and gain a skill point. He wants to be saved from death and see a ghost.
Don rolled Popularity. He currently wants woohoo 10 sims and make out with 10 sims, woohoo in a bed, meet someone new and go on a vacation.
According to this spreadsheet, Cass should have been a knowledge sim with a family secondary, so we will just go with the flow and give knowledge as her secondary. Nothing changes after that, so we may invite Daniel.
This was supposed to be Mortimer swinging around Alex, but then Dina WADDLED by. The town has a 25% risky probability and silent pregnancies. I have no clue who fathered this child.
Mortimer loses his want to swim to swing around Alex, which rolled up flirty date wants when Dina walked by. Who am I to do discourage this?
Well, omg. What has happened?
Mortimer wanted to take pictures with Dina and just take a photo booth photo over and over. He wanted to play with her and admire (he chose apologize). He finally made friends with her again and then wanted to be best friends. The date that never wanted to end kept going while Alex hung out with the Contessa.
Alex needs to get home to bed, but not before we get Mortimer to the point that he believes that Dina didn’t mean to upset him.
Omg…she’s pissed at him with good reason! I checked Mortimer and he’s pissed at her for catching him cheating! He must have mooned over Nina within Dina’s eyeline. Dammit.
Mortimer, halfway convinced the baby was his, quickly marries Dina. Dina, after Mortimer’s money, shrugs off her worry about his future fidelity and agrees.
..And little Alex? He was left alone the whole night to entertain himself with swimming and Vampires.
Friendly or not, Cass doesn’t see this going well having two pregnant adult females under one roof.
Dina: This is my domain now, time for you to move!
Not wanting to upset his new wife, Mortimer secretly hands Cass a check and she quietly deposits it in an account that Don will never know about.
Since most of the night was spent at the park, it’s barely 3 hrs after 6pm on Wednesday.
Don: C’mon, Cass, you’ll have to forgive me sooner or later!
Cass: That’s debatable!
Cass just found out that Don didn’t sell his condo after all. She is convinced this is where he has been taking his side piece, Nina.
After spending the day working on her next promotion, Cass calls up Daniel to improve on their friendship. Her 2nd trimester is going fairly well and she turns in early to avoid Don when he gets home from work.
Love #6 calls up and invites Downtown.
After making sure Cass was indeed down for the night, Don quietly slips out the door.
He wants to go on a date, kiss Daisy, flirt with Daisy and still has his 10x makeout/woohoo and meet someone new.
The outing includes a child sized person…at a nightclub.
Not much happens, but one of the people in the outing did some networking.
Kid: What are you two doing?
Don: Go away, kid.
And then Dina shows up and Don quickly stops what he’s doing and heads back to soak in the hot tub like nothing was going on.
Cass comes home from work in labor.
His name is Ethan.
Don was tasked with parenting while Cass recovers from the whole pregnancy.
Don’s secondary aspiration is Popularity, which means I do force him to skill just enough to continue his job.
Fully recovered from labor, Cass is wanting another baby already. Don must have sensed it because I did get a TFB pop up. Not sure if it worked or not.
Ethan ages up and looks a bit like both parents.
Since Don has a fear of changing diapers, Cass immediately gets him started potty training.
It must not have worked the first time because I just caught them going at it in the hot tub. Not sure how that works since Cass is still furious with Don.
Her daily chats with Daniel finally pay off and she has a new best friend.
I think the hot tub worked its magic!
Don heads out to Club Dante and meets Mandy Pittman, his next notch on the bed post. She was VERY resistant to his charms and it takes him all day to work her up. He did complete his want for a date, but even then she would barely do anything.
When he rolled the want to ask her home, things moved a bit faster, but still no joy. He was in love with her, but it was not reciprocated. By 5pm, it was time to get her out of the house.
Mandy: You tried to woohoo me in front of your kid?
Don: He’s a baby. He wouldn’t have remembered it.
After Mandy leaves, Don sends the Nanny home and feeds Ethan. Cass and Don were just about to woohoo again, but she had to do her spin.
Just in time for Sunday night and a day before Ethan’s child birthday.
Cass: With her secondary as knowledge, all she learned was skills. She now has Max all skills and have a baby locked. She made it to level 7 in her career.
Don: He basically wanted to woohoo and meet new people. He still has woohoo 10 sims and make out with 10 sims locked in.
Ethan: Basic toddler skills (completed) and play with mom/dad, talk to mom/dad, nursery rhyme with mom/dad. He has grow up well locked.
I do have an aging hack in, but (I’m not sure if I mentioned it) it will only affect people on their next age up. I have no inclination to open SimPE to alter things and screw it up.
