I thought it would be better to start my own thread so I can have an ongoing story with my pics - because there will probably be a lot of them. :grin:

 

I visited Dotty and Adrian Stratton at the same time as Dotty's mother came over to congratulate her for the newborn baby, David. Babies are always so cute especially when they sleep.

It is time for David's birthday, he will now be a toddler. Dotty really enjoys playing with David and of course he is happy too.

Adrian is tucking in David when he comes home late from work. He works so much he doesn't have much time to spend with him during the day. Dotty's sister Beatrice visits and play with David when both parents are at work.

Adrian and Dotty is trying to get another baby and it seems like she is pregnant again. Dotty is so hungry all the time. She calls for chinese food so she will get food fast but however much she gobbles down the food, she is still hungry.

When Beatrice hears that Dotty is pregnant for the second time, she visits her sister again to congratulate and give her a big hug. David became a child so quick that the family missed to celebrate the birthday. Here he is, taking a quick snack before he goes to school the first schoolday.

Thank you all. I haven't been playing much before but now I think it's fun. Maybe you remember that Dotty is one of Don's children, the one he got together with Christy Stratton, and I will tell the other childrens story too.

Thank you. It seems that I don't have time with this story now that I am doing the Homestead challenge, so it will have to wait.

I know what you mean, but it is so much fun playing the Homestead Challenge, I don't want to do anything else. Sometimes I am playing HC and I forget to get screenshots. :cheesy:

I started this thread to tell my Sims 2 story but it has been so much going on in real life this last year that I haven't played much until recently.

 

This time I want to start the story by telling how the families are connected and also start with Don Lothario, because he is ground zero.

 

Don had a lot of affairs before he settled down. He never married but he lived his last years with Christy Stratton (the maid) and they had a daughter, Dotty. Dotty married Adrian (a sim made by me) and they have a child, David.

 

Before he met Christy, Don had an affair with Cassandra and they had a daughter, Beatrice. Beatrice married Clarence and they have three kids, Corinne, Chris and Belinda. Belinda is married to Jared.

Then he had an affair with Dina Caliente. They also had a daughter, Donna. Donna married Alvin and they have a son, Daniel. Don also had an affair with Nina Caliente. They had a son, Donny.

 

Cassandra married Ethan and they got a daughter, Celia. They also adopted four kids, Amin, Amin (yes the same name and I don't know why, blame the game), Alon and Arcadia. They are young adults but have no family of their own yet.

From the left and down Celia, Ethan, Amin, Alon (in the sofa), from the right and down Cassandra, Amin and Arcadia.

 

Christy married Leo after Don had died. They have no kids but they hav a dog, Darling.

Pleasantview has such a sorted backstory; this must make gameplay very interesting and lots of fun. Don was a very busy man :grin:. Darling is so cute. :1hug: I'm looking forward to learning more about this family. Thank you Marbi.

Thank you LilSister. Here are some more about the caracters I am playing. Diana (daughter of Dina and Mortimer Goth) and Donna (daughter of Dina and Don Lothario) is visiting their mother and having a good time together with her and Joel. They have been swimming in the pool so thats why they have so little clothes on. :)

Donna and her husband Alvin is having a good time playing with their son Daniel (Don Lothario's grandchild).

Diana and her husband Brian (Brandi Broke's son) is very much in love. They don't have any kids yet but they have a cat.

Dina and Ralph had a visit by Donny (Don's and Nina's son) that came over for dinner. He is a very handsom young man.

This is a very interesting way to play the game, Marbi.   Isn't it hard to keep tract of whose kid is whose? The only in-game family I ever played with is the Broke family; and then only till their problems were sorted out   And I gave each of them a total makeover  :grin:

 

Thank you for your lovely pictures. I'm looking forward to see how this family developed.

I love this style of gameplay using a premade family and building on... I want to try this myself, but will need to write notes to keep track!

I think what's most appealing is that all other simmers can relate to these beloved characters because they are in everyone's game but few ever really play them to learn of their potential to develop into sims with depth....even naughty Don who sure has lots of grand kids in his old age!

Pleasantview has always been such an interesting neighborhood! With such interesting back stories! You are definitely continuing in the spirit of the neighborhood, with Don and his "romantic" ways  :) How often do you have to check the family trees to see how everyone is related lol.

It is hard to remember so I have to check the family tree a lot. :) I do enjoy playing this way but it is hard to spend just enough time with each family to bring them forward in the same pace.

Here we have Jared Caliente (son of Nina and Ralph) and his wife Belinda. Jumping on the bed is Isaiah, Jared's little brother. Nina and Ralph were not capable to take care of him so he moved in with Jared and Belinda.

In this picture you can see Donny Caliente (Nina and Don's son) and his wife Abbey and their daughter Celia.

How do you keep them all figured out? I've so missed Sims stories, thank you for sharing this. It's so interesting to me to see how other people play the game. :icon_hug:

Thank you for the nice comments. After I had posted these photos I got unsure about having things under control. :) I have to check if Jared really is the son of Nina and Ralph because one note said so but another note I had made said otherwise. Thats me, very confused all the time.

Checked it out and Jared is the son of Nina and Ralph. Belinda, his wife, is the child of Beatrice Goth and Clarence. Beatric is the child of Cassandra Goth and Don Lothario. No wonder that I am confused. :)
