This is just part of a montage in the next chapter, so not particularly important other than to show Dina's sales prowess (which I think is more due to adorkableness rather than charisma.) If you don't understand why I'm giggling, let's go in for a closer look at Gvaudoin's BFF...

I think it's a pity she grew out of this phase.

Also, on a completely different topic, what do you all think of this nightie? Shareable?

Yeah, I would have to agree, Dina is very adorkable! I think she could even sell makeup to me!

Is that Meadow Thayer? My, my, she's come a long way...

Totally sharable ;)

Nope, it's not Meadow...(Hint: I based her teenage style on one of her daughters)

No way!! I never would have guessed! LOL, and just look at her now! Well then, she shouldn't be so hard on Lilith... Phases indeed, she's one to talk! Gosh, I'm giggling too!

Mary Sue!

I would have never guessed that was Mary Sue. I love that nightie too!

And YES, very shareable.

Mary Sue, you look so different! Also, I love the nightie.

I don't know which one I like more...Mary-Sue or the nightie. That's awesome in all kinds of ways! ;)

Mary Sue! I love her teen self! And now I can definitely see a similarity between her and Lilith! ;)
Also, the nightie is really beautiful!

Haha! Nice. I guess Mary Sue has hidden the evidence of this phase from her daughters. How would they feel if they knew she was more like Lilith than Angela? Oh their worlds would be turned upside down! XD

Seeing Dina and Mary Sue both as teenagers really highlights for me how wonky sim ages can be, especially in the implied stories. Dina comes off as being way younger than Mary Sue, but they really could have been teens together, if on different ends of the super long teen stage (I use a hack to shorten it in my game, for my sanity). (And personally, I will always place her as closer in age to Cassandra than Mary Sue, though maybe she's somewhere in between?)

I think Cassandra must be around 30 in TS2, given her age in TS1 and Mary Sue must be something like 10 years older to have teenage daughters, yet according to their memories they've been besties since childhood. I ended up deciding Mary Sue was her babysitter, and since Cassie is really shy she didn't have that many other friends. (Bella would totally hire a punk rock babysitter. She has a disdain for the mundane!)

I think Maxis probably intended Dina to be around Cassie's age, but that turns her first kiss memory into a very creepy situation, so I wrote her as being older (Jenny Smith's age) just to fix that (though Dina, Nina, and Bella will have a run in with some youthifying simlish phlebotinum down the line.)

Yeah, 30 would work, if you think of sims in terms of human ages (which I don't, really, but that's neither here nor there! :P). It makes sense to me. She's shy and a little odd, so she stays home to help her father throughout her young adult life. And then Don shows up. *dun dun dun*

Yeah, the childhood thing with the Mary Sue - Cassandra friendship throws me off a little. I can easily see adult Cassandra being friends with a much older woman (I, for example, am just shy of 30, and have friends who are 50+), but if you want to be really true to the game details, it didn't happen that way. The babysitter thing works, or even just that they live next door to each other and little Cassy liked to wander into the Pleasant's (or the Oldie's, take your pick) backyard and was interested in Mary Sue's pottery.

I like your vision of the Goths as nonconformists. It's fun, and it really makes sense if you're linking it to Sims 3, where they seem like emo rockers.

The Goths as emo rockers is one thing I actually liked about TS3. I mean, sure it may not fit with Cornelia's original characterization but you gotta love the purple hair!
Mar. 27th, 2011 12:33 am (UTC)
Purple hair is fun, for sure.

I'm not familiar with Cornelia's characterization in Sims 2. Does she even have a story around her at all? I never looked into it.
Mar. 27th, 2011 12:54 am (UTC)
She originally came with TS1 Pets, where her biography is:

"Cornelia is the founder of the Sim City Bridge Society and enjoys high tea and phrenology. She is thankful to have her granddaughter, Cassandra, so nearby."

The phrenology thing is a little eccentric, but she certainly wasn't quite so literally "Goth". Though a purple haired old lady character would have been fun.
