Who to pair with Brandi and why?

    Last time I played her a few laptops ago, I left her single, sent Dustin to University with Angela Pleasant, and let Brandi raise Beau and her new baby.

    Both are single parents and widows, so they would have a lot in common. It also irks me that the game sets Darren up to be romantic with Cassandra. She's way too young for him. Darren and Brandi both have teenage sons so they're closer in age.

    In my game, a lot of my Pleasantview Sims have multiple marriages. In Brandi's case she first marries Malcom Landgraab because she's jealous of her friend Dina marrying rich. Only Brandi finds out Malcom is cruel, abusive and cold. After Mortimer dies Dina eventually steals Malcom away from Brandi and Malcom kicks her out on the street even though she gave birth to two of his children, a daughter and then his heir/son. Brandi and Darren always have 3 bolts of chemistry and have a great friendship throughout their time in Pleasantview and while her own children from before: Dustin, Beau and Skip Jr won't take her in, she's left homeless and goes to crash on the only place she knows... Darren's couch. He takes her in, feels sorry for her, they end up having pity woohoo and she becomes pregnant yet again. Darren does the honorable thing and marries her. They stay married some what happily until he dies. By this point, it's their third marriage for both of them because Darren had already married someone else before Brandi (it's complicated and another story lol). While I never see Brandi or Darren passionately in love with each other, they have a great friendship and do find each other attractive (3 bolts) and find it easy to talk to one another.

    It really is... In my game I made Brandi be more of a villain than others usually play her. I think she's the type who see's what she wants and goes for it despite what it might cost those around her... like it just seems suspicious to me that she's such good friends with Dina and Nina who are notoriously known for also being selfish Sims. Like why would they be all such good friends with only her? I always thought it was weird. Basically Brandi is jealous of Dina now living this rich lifestyle and becomes a bit of a gold digger herself albeit for slightly different ulterior motives (being a family sim and all) and abandons her family of Dustin, Beau and Skip Jr for Malcome Landgraab. She's just assumes Dustin can handle it which of course... makes Dustin very bitter. They already don't have a strong relationship when you start the game and this just makes it worse.

    Daniel Pleasant
    I usually break Daniel and Mary-Sue up, have him do a bachelor thing for a moment, then eventually get with Brandi. When he does, I typically change his aspiration to wealth or family instead of keep it romance. I like to think after his divorce he took a long look at himself and realized he was an idiot, but also that it was too late to get his wife back, so he changed his ways and moved on for the better.

    I usually get a matchmaker for Brandi - I honestly don't know what townie she would go with
  • delicadodelicado Posts: 4 New Member
    I paired her with Gilbert Jacker or I don't remember his last name, the guy from J'adore Bakery living in Bluewater Village with his elder mother

    Don Lothario is my daughter's favorite sim, so I feel obligated to pick him :D.

    Darren Dreamer because both their spouses died and their kids look good.

    Depends. I've had her be with Darren, no one, randoms, etc.

    This time, I added I think 6? sims to the town to ensure there's fresh blood (that aren't the ugly townies lol). One has already been involved heavily with Nina, so there is a possibility there.

    Right now Cassandra is with Don, Daniel with Kaylynn, Dina with Mortimer, the Burbs and Oldies unchanged. I haven't gotten too far in my rotation. Only endgame I see is Dina and Mortimer (atleast until he dies, which is fast approaching), and Nina with Don. Not in a marriage way, but Roomies with benefits :p. Still leaves plenty of options for Brandi, and I usually let the sims take the lead when it comes to romance.

    I say nobody because there'll probably be another "Pool accident" if you catch my drift.

    Why is there no other option? lol Basically what i do is Remake the "dead, non-ressurectable sims" as my own, with their genetics as close as possible. I basically recreated skip broke and had them marry!

    Played Brandi and made her very successful. She was a challenge to me because she was also pregnant and not showing, living in that run down trailer house.
    Her 2 children in school, she didn't have a job. But I like challenges. Had her children finish school, and she learned Arts and crafts. It was a lot of hard work because Dustin was the only one who could help around the house, and he had to go to school. Beau could only do small things.
    For her mate, I made a new sim after having her scope the room at a public place. Then I made a Sim I thought she would like because there were no single men sims for her, and nobody likes her. Brandi always has this expression on her face like she's not happy.
    She is now a very skilled Painter, pottery maker, and her older son graduated from college, and Beau just graduated but Brandi is always trying to chase after her older son, Dustin, like he's her bf. So I had to stop playing them for a little while. There's no way to fix that.

    I always add more custom Townies to my Neighborhoods, and paired her with one of them. A female one, actually! I feel like she wouldn't really be able to be with another guy after Skip, so she tried something new.
