Gothic Resort Insanity: Prologue


I’m told every place has a story and I’m told every story has a narrator.  Since I think this place deserves to have its story told I suppose I’ll step in.  The place is called the Gothic Resort and its situated in Lucky Palms just outside the city limits.

My name is Alberto Free and me and 4 of my siblings run the Gothic Resort.  That’s why this isn’t just a story about a place it’s also a story about family.

My father is Liam Gelman and if you haven’t heard about him by now it’s because you don’t like following the gossip columns.  He’s taking on a challenge to have 100 children because some woman, who claims to be a goddess, says she’ll grant him immortality if he manages to accomplish it.

Me and my twin brother Bernard’s mom was a ghost named Talia Free who neither of us have ever met.

She wandered into my Dad’s house one night and he, being who he is, seduced her.

She didn’t hang around long after me and my brother were born though.  My dad said the nanny, Betsy, told him she was afraid of other ghosts and couldn’t stand to be around Bernard any longer.  She ran away and never returned or ever tried to contact us or dad again.

That’s okay though because my dad was a good dad even if there were a lot of us kids for him to pay attention to.

The house was always full because even when our older brother and sisters left there were always new kids being born.

That brings me to the vampire trio.  Their mom is a vampire rocker named Ava Downing.

She met my dad at a friend’s party and told him she wanted kids but didn’t want to have to take care of them.  My dad, wanting more kids, agreed.  After my brother’s and sister had their childhood birthday she left and only calls them occasionally.  Its kind of strange she never seems to want to meet them in person.

Its okay though because me and Bernard didn’t mind stepping in and helping with them and our other younger siblings.

In fact we got pretty close to them since we spent so much time with them.

So even when it came time for us to leave home we still kept in touch.

Speaking of Bernard and I leaving.  That’s when the birth of the idea for the Resort began.

We started looking and found a property that would work great for what we had in mind in Lucky Palms.

While Bernard and I were working hard on pulling permits and getting the Resort off the ground the Vampire Trio grew-up in much the same way Bernard and I did helping with our younger siblings while they grew up.  They loved getting updates on our progress and we on theirs.

Just when we finished up with the construction of the Resort we were invited to their young adult birthday party.

We got there a little late just missing the traditional photoshoot but we got a warm welcome anyways.

When we got there the Trio convinced us to let them work at the Resort with us.

Celeste had the idea to decorate it with a Gothic theme and so our official name became The Gothic Resort.

Beverly was always good with sims so we put her in charge of guest relations and advertising.  She runs the front desk and helps with the laundry too.


Celeste, who always liked to cook, became the chef.  She’s a vegetarian vampire so plasma fruit dishes for vampires were sure to make us unique.

Bennet, a musician, was given the responsibility to organize the entertainment.

TS3W 2013-05-13 19-38-56-39

Bernard used his handiness by doing all of our repairs.

TS3W 2013-05-13 19-27-12-78

As for me, I’ve always loved plants and the outdoors so I decided to be the grounds keeper and supply Celeste with a garden full of fresh ingredients.

TS3W 2013-05-13 19-32-36-81

I even took my dad’s cowplant in since it had to be removed.  I was happy too since it wasn’t Anubis’ fault that the nanny fed someone to him.  I keep him locked up to be safe.

The Resort did well right away and we were thrilled and the only sad thing was Lucky Palms had some old laws on the book banning vampires so the Trio wasn’t welcome to go into town unless it was on business.


They remedied this by going to the neighboring town of Sunset Valley where there was a vampire lounge called Lexington 9 to have fun.


There Bev became friends with a vampire named Alexia Lex.  You know how in a lot of those stories there is some girl that the hero never really gets over.


Well in mine that girl is Alexia.


She came into my life with the passionate ferosity of a tornado.


It started with what I thought was a one-night stand at her friend’s club.


After that I figured I could avoid her but when I was offered the chance to pick up some extra money one summer when we had to close the resort for repairs from a freak thunder storm by helping her friend with his landscaping and some household chores she was staying there.  Since he owned the club Lexington 9 and I helped out there occasionally too I was pretty much around her 24/7.


One thing led to another and we started hooking up for sex.  I’m normally not that kind of guy but she had some kind of hold on me.  For a while I thought that maybe she was starting to feel the same way about me as I felt about her but I learned I was wrong.  She made it pretty clear when I went back to my life I was out of hers.


If that was all it might have been the end of it but unfortunately that summer left us connected in a way that’s impossible to avoid.  She called me one day and said that she had a baby, my son, that at first she thought wasn’t mine.  She wanted me to meet him and be a part of Axel’s life and I wanted to be.


Unfortunately that meant that Alexia would be a part of my life as well.  Still I wouldn’t trade not seeing my child just to avoid his mother.

The brings me to the other woman in my life.  Dove Wing came to the Gothic Resort when we added horseback riding as an amenity to care for them and the excursions.  I was attracted to her but I never said anything about it.

TS3W 2013-05-15 22-15-03-19

When she found me crying the night I came home from meeting my son she was there to pick up the pieces.

TS3W 2013-05-15 22-52-27-10

I needed the comfort and the shoulder to cry on so I didn’t have any of those walls up I usually did.

TS3W 2013-05-16 00-01-52-23

I let her in and she then she helped me put the hurt far away from my mind.  Those few stolen moments that night turned into a relationship.


A pattern developed though.   Every time I’d see Axel, and Alexia was there, I’d be reminded of the summer and those feelings would come back.  She always seemed to get under my skin.  She knew just what buttons to push.


I’d end up sleeping with her.  When it came to Alexia I seemed to be powerless to resist her advances.

TS3W 2013-05-16 16-12-39-90

I’d feel guilty that I had those feelings still and had sex with Alexia so I’d break up with Dove.

TS3W 2013-05-16 09-09-59-73

After a while she’d get me to open up and we’d start over again.  Honestly I don’t know why she kept getting back with me over and over and never be angry at me.

While I’ve been on this emotional roller coaster I’ve thrown myself into work and enjoyed the happiness of my siblings.  While most of them had their share of disappointing relationships I kept my own struggles to myself.

TS3W 2013-05-13 22-55-00-99TS3W 2013-05-13 22-51-01-57

The only one lucky in love of us really is Bernard.  He had the extreme good luck to have the love of his life, a ghostly woman named Emma Bliss, float in and stay in our resort one summer.

TS3W 2013-05-14 12-20-40-94

I can’t say I wasn’t a little jealous when he and she tied the knot and started a family.  I had my son, but I didn’t have a family.  I couldn’t really be a part in his every day life.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my niece and nephew and I still am happy for brother even if I long for what he has at times.

TS3W 2013-05-13 23-07-33-93

For a long time I felt like I was missing something though by all accounts I had a full life.  I found out what it was when Dove told me she was pregnant.  I guess there was a part of me longing for a family and a child that I got to see more than on a visitation schedule.

TS3W 2013-05-13 23-05-47-13

My little Linnet is my everything now and she’s helped me to finally heal some of my  broken heart.

TS3W 2013-05-13 23-11-10-37

In caring for our daughter Dove and I have drawn closer in a way I wouldn’t let myself before.  Maybe I’m finally finding the strength to completely move on and enjoy the love I have for Dove, it may not be that intense explosion and desparate longing I felt with Alexia, and have that family I’ve always wanted.

TS3W 2013-05-15 00-35-21-04

So if you find your way to Lucky Palms and stop by and you’ll be wlecome.  We’ll treat you like one of the family.
