Round 1: Dreamer 1
Going to the Dogs
Going to the Dogs
Darren Dreamer is recovering from the loss of his wife Darleen. Meanwhile, his son Dirk is in a blossoming relationship with Lilith Pleasant. Let's see how the Dreamers are doing...
Me: Congrats on maximizing the creativity skill, Darren! I bet you could make a living from painting and writing novels.
Darren: I am interested in all things media, but I would prefer working outside of the home. Too many memories here, you know.
Me: Of course. That's understandable. Oh, I think hear the school bus. Dirk is home.
Me: Dirk, I see Lilith came home from school with you.Dirk and Lilith: *lip smacking*
Me: Um, Dirk, at your age, your hormones are raging. And with ACR installed, you may want to act on those hormones...
Dirk: Relax, we're just making out. We're not going to go any farther.
Me: That's a relief.
Dirk: It's not so much about morality, though. It's just that Mr. Pleasant would kill me if anything happened his daughter!
Me: It's time for your girlfriend to go home, anyway. Your carpool will be here any minute.
Me: Bummer, Dirk! I'm so sorry you got demoted. I would have thought making out with Lilith would have sent you to work in a good mood.
Dirk: My social need was fine, but the others not so much. I don't care about that crummy job anyway.
Dirk: What I really want to do is train pets and get them to the top of their careers.
Me: Really? Well, I have just the Critturs for you!
Me: Dirk, say hello to Sarah and Danny. If you can get these two to the top of their careers, you can train any animal in the Uberhood.
Me: Welcome home, Darren. Congrats on your promotion!
Darren: Do I hear barking?
Me: I love watching the dogs play. Sarah and Danny remind me of my own two Yorkies, Duke and Isabella. For some reason, my dogs always want to start playing when I'm ready to go to bed!
Dirk: Hey, Lil, you wanna go Downtown and split a sundae?
Lilith: Not right now. Can't you see I'm about to top your high score?Me: I guess I really don't need to worry about ACR and you two.
Dirk: *sullenly* I guess not.
Me: Congrats, Darren on another promotion.
Darren: Is it really necessary for you to put in our promotion pictures? You're not really keeping points or anything.
Me: No, I'm not, but if it weren't for promotions, some of you wouldn't appear in the blog at all!
Me: Darren, you're giving Sarah a bath while Dirk is hanging out with Lilith? I thought the dogs were his responsibility.
Darren: They are. I'm just helping him out.
Me: And Sarah escapes!
Darren: She runs very fast for a pregnant dog.
Me: She won't be pregnant for long.
Darren: So the dogs don't have to follow the Alphabet Twist naming convention?
Me: No. I'm not doing any pet legacies here. If I had been a little more lucid at the time I would have named them Dasher, Dancer and Vixen!
Me: I have no idea which puppy is which, so I'll just put their names on the side.
Me: Sarah doesn't like getting baths, but she sure doesn't mind giving them.
Me: Well done, Danny. Dirk is on his way to his lifetime want.
Dirk: These dogs are going to make me a fortune, Lil. Just wait and see.
Lilith: I think your fortune just piddled on the floor over there.
Darren: I'm surprised you took the job with Dina's law firm, Brandi. I always pictured you working in the education field.
Me: I'm really impressed you had a great week with five dogs running around the house.Dirk: Dad, I still miss Mom a lot, but I want you to know that if you find love again, go for it. I don't expect you to live the rest of your life alone.
Darren: Thanks, Son. That means a lot.
Me: Speaking of finding love again... Are you sure want those two to breed again?
Dirk: I need six pets, and they only had three puppies last time.
Dirk: I feel bad about leaving my dad to look after the dogs while I'm in college.
Me:He doesn't seem to mind. Have a great time at Academie Le Tour with Alexander and Dustin.
When I played the Dreamers, I was curious to see if Dirk and Lilith would also woohoo, but they never did. The most they did was the makeout that you saw at the beginning of the post. It's funny. The "bad" twin turns out to be the prude, and the "good" twin goes all the way with her boyfriend. I think this game simulates life more than people realize!
