    Way back when I was nuts about Sims 2 (read 2005-2009) I always had Cassandra seek comfort with her good friend Darren after Don leaves her at the altar to move on and marrying Nina Caliente instead. Cass finally realizes she loves Darren and they get married in a small-ish wedding with the closest friends and family. They have two kids(a boy and a girl) and Cassandra makes splendid work as stepmother to Dirk.
    Darren is finally discovered as an artist and Cassandra climbs the ladder in her science career and celebrate many years together with kids and grandkids.

    I've had several versions. My first had Cassandra and Darren getting together and having a son named, Morpheus. Another I had Don and Cassandra marry and Don ended up being a surprisingly good father to his five kids. Darren ended up marrying Titania Summerdream (I do the Uberhoods), had a kid and then another via alien abduction.

    Now that I'm playing the game again for the first time in years (still doing the Uberhood), who knows what will happen.

    I’m usually “meh” about love triangles, and the, “best friend’s The One™️ after all” sub-trope to that has been done so much that it grates on me, so I always have Cassandra reject Darren and then set them up with other sims. I’m really fond of Darren x Brandi Broke, personally. I’m pretty sure I’ve only attempted Darren x Cassandra once, and he left her at the altar like Don! She was stood up three times. Three! And the latter two happened all because the environment need was in the red due to me neglecting the landscaping, lol. TS2 sims are fickle.

    I made Cassandra and Don get married, and made sure Don was a "reformed character" after that. I ended up making everyone married in Pleasantview. Almost every female Sim fell pregnant and their kids had kids and so on.

    I didn't really make a plan honestly, I decided to see how the opening scene when you first enter the Goth residence played out and I would go from there. Well, Don left Cassandra :lol: so I figured I'd let her and Darren get married and such since they did seem like a very cute couple. Dirk went off to Uni while Cassandra popped out a couple kids lol I'm hoping to get Alexander with Lilith in Uni; idk why but they just seem like they'd be an adorable little gothy couple :lol:

    Cassandra and Don got married and had a daughter but eventually after all his extra marital affairs she left him. Darren dated Brandi for a bit as they had 3 lightening bolts. Eventually Brandi married a townie ( Mr big) and Darren finally won Cassandra's heart. They are now married with twin girls and Darleen ghost walks around with angry think bubbles of the twins.

    I usually hook up Cassandra and Darren too, recently I’ve gotten Don to get Cassandra pregnant because they make a cute son together (He’s usually a boy) and then after the son grows into a child I get Cassandra and Darren to get married... They haven’t had a kid yet. Oh and Darren’s dead wife comes back to life to have an affair with Don... Don gets EVERY woman in Pleasantview because once I make him over he’s a lady killer... Also yes he fathers quite a few kids.

    Poor Dirk it’s a good thing he has his friend Dustin and his girlfriend Lilith and if I’m in the mood a boyfriend and if I had my way Lilith would watch (I need to find a poly relationship mod)

    I just started a game where I resurrected Cassandra's mom Bella Goth and I had Cassandra catch Don and Nina and then break up with Don, and now Bella is about to leave Mortimer for hooking up with Dina while she was gone. Cassandra is going to get with Darren (It takes literally one romantic interaction between them to make them fall in love due to their preexisting relationship score) and I'll send Darren's kid off to college once they move in together. Dina and Nina both broke up with Don and Dina moved out because she hated Nina for sleeping with him too. So far it's been quite interesting XD

    I sometimes choose to resurrect Darleen Dreamer and Skip Broke, make them marry their spouses, and never make Cassandra and Darren together.
    I also made Brandi Broke and Darren Dreamer marry once, in a game when their children married Pleasant twins.
    I don't think Cassandra and Darren would be a good couple.

    I think they got married when I first played the game.

    However, after EAxis gave the Collector's edition away in 2014 things changed:
    Darren has a son with Nina Caliente. He is called Don-Juan.
    Cassandra got married to a Sim I created, Georg von Sonnenburg, and has two sets of twins with him:
    - Jael Corona and Cornelius Goth
    - Malvina and Simeon Lot Goth.

    In my most recent play Cassandra married Don, they had a son together before catching him with Nina and divorcing. Cassandra finally decided to give into her feelings for Darren and they got married and had twins, a boy and a girl. Shortly after the twins aged up to children, Darren was taking out the trash one night, while I was focusing on another sim he died outside, I was never sure why, but I'm assuming it was a ghost scare since they were living at the haunted Goth mansion, but there was also a wolf outside... Eventually Cassandra found a random townie and remarried, since she kept rolling the want for it. She ended up having an accidental baby just before she became an elder (I have ACR). Now she's living with her husband, teen daughter and her oldest 3 children are graduated from college and married, she also has a granddaughter.

    I tend to get Cassandra with Darren after she finds out Don is a cheater and divorces him, but I played recently with her sticking with Don, and Darren instead rolling a want to marry Nina Caliente after she took him on a date. It was... unusual.

    Oh, don't let Nina get her gold digging hands on Darren. ;)

    Had Cassandra break up with Don and had Darren & Cassandra go on dates and be a happy couple but Dirk hated Cassandra he got over it and they were a happy family Cassandra had a kid with Don before they broke up though Darren was a good stepdad to her.

    I dont think ive ever let them hook up, despite the game's scripting heavily implying this is what should happen. I stick to canon things where possible, and I dont know if these two canonically hook up. I do know that Don canonically leaves Cassandra, his own household is scripted to have him carry on romantic pursuits all over town, despite his engagement; all that is lost if if he actually accepts the marriage on the Goth's lot (in my game, I had to reset multiple times, he kept NOT running away. "Don Goth" looks so very wrong!)

    In my last proper attempt at running Pleasantview longterm, before my harddrive got wiped by someone, I had Darren and Cassandra still friends, but I didnt want to force anything; sims can fall for pretty much anyone very easily. I was only going to let it happen if they actually did things themselves. Theres also the matter of Darleen; Darren is quite clearly haunted by her death, and having Darleen playable in Lucky Palms, where she gets together with Darren and has a happy life until her death, makes it all the more sadder. Resurrection exists in the game, and I think he would jump at the chance to bring her back. (Nevermind the fact that due to muckups in the code before release, the Darleen in his graveyard has the wrong relationship values with him, and they wont be so loveydovey with each other post resurrection unless you fix those values with SimPE. There is a seperate deleted Darleen in the code that has the real relationship values, they were quite high I beleive!)

    Yeah @Devalaous you are right I never did resurrect anyone because it would really corrupt a lot of things and best let the dead stay dead, if you can't use the Reaper phone on them.
