Thank you for the compliments on the house - it is possibly the best one I've ever built in terms of scale and realism.  I'm still decorating the inside (the downstairs is in good shape except for the vestibule but the upstairs is completely uninspired) and the whole property isn't complete yet.  I'd like to add a paddock and horse track and/or jumping course in the open space.  The only drawback is that it only has 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are going to be dormitory style for the immortals when their spouse passes on.  I think it might get a little crowded as the game progresses.  But the loft in the barn is huge and I could easily see sectioning off part of it for the immortal dormitory if things get too cramped.

Read. And it's amazing! The house looks great too.
And you found the bride of Franklestein outside your house, interesting. Townies have no sense of style.

I have to nerd rage for a minute.  I just finished playing for 6 hours - I had Raven's MA almost super maxed and the family had a vacation home in China.  Just as I was saving the file for the last time my cat decided to jump on my computer and she hit the power button (who the heck puts a power button on the TOP?!).  She caused a fatal error with the file I was saving and I lost all that progress.  GAHHHHH!  Fortunately I created a backup right before I started playing so I only lost the last 6 hours but I'm ready to drop kick my cat into the next century!  Oh I'm so ticked off right now I could spit!   >:(

Aren't you lucky you had a backup! I don't think I could imagine if someone came and turned off my computer and lost that current file!

Don't go hating on the kitty. Maybe you forgot to feed her lolz.
But I am sorry for your loss. But hey, that's why we make back ups.

Home Away From Home

I called the family meeting for my evening off, knowing that Laron would be home from the science center and Raven home from school at that time.  Mom only ventured out after dark if one of her many friends was hosting a soiree, but that night she had nowhere to be but with us.

'Raven,' I started, 'we all know how dedicated you are to your martial arts studies.  You have a real talent and your Dad and I think it is almost time for you to travel to Shang Simla to study with a sensei at the Academy there.'

'No way!' she exclaimed.  'Really?!  Oh my goddess, I can't believe it!  When are we going?  How long will we be there?  What about school?  What about Lulu and Roux?  Oh my goddess, OH MY GODDESS!'

'Wait a minute young lady, you haven't heard me out!' I hollered, trying to get a word into the stream of excitement that was pouring non-stop from her mouth.  'Here's the deal.  Grandma has a level 2 visa to China from the trip she and Grandpa took when you were a nooboo.  What your Dad and I were thinking was perhaps Grandma would like to go back on her own to earn a level 3 visa and buy a vacation home.  This would give you time to make the honor roll and attend prom.  Then once Grandma is ready, you and she can go back for a nice, long trip.  Dad and I will stay here and look after Lulu and Roux.  What do you say, Mom, are you up for some more adventures?' I asked, taking her hand in mine.

Her eyes grew misty as she was undoubtedly thinking about her last trip to Shang Simla with Dad.  She brushed a single tear from her cheek and nodded.  Little by little I saw a spark of excitement kindle behind her eyes.  As much as we would all enjoy a vacation home, this trip was really for her benefit.  Dad's death had aged her in a way that was both heartbreaking and frightening.  Hopefully this trip would bring back her passion for life.

'When do I leave?' she asked, matter-of-factly.

'Tomorrow morning,' I replied.  'We bought you a round trip ticket for a 9 day stay.'

'Well I guess I better get packing,' she said with a smile.  I thought I heard her humming 'Ping and his Checkers' as she headed upstairs to prepare for her trip.

The next morning we all saw Mom off to the airport.  She waved farewell and promised to call us as soon as she landed in Shang Simla.

'Aren't you worried about Grandma adventuring at her age?' Raven asked. 

'Not at all, dear.  I tucked a couple of death flowers into her suitcase just in case.'

It turned out that Mom never needed those death flowers.  She did just fine.  Well there was that one run in with an electrical trap...



She found some amazing artifacts...



...and explored every obstacle fearlessly.



Before long we got an email from her saying that she bought a lovely property right in the Forbidden City called West Royal House. 



How exciting!  It sounded quite posh, but Mom told us not to blow things out of proportion.  By Chinese standards it was quite posh indeed, but by Appaloosa Plains standards it was quite modest.

Mom spent the rest of her trip decorating and preparing the house for the trip she and Raven would be making in the near future.





Meanwhile, back at home, Laron and I were doing some decorating of our own.






Raven made it on the honor roll and attended prom, just as we had hoped.  Unfortunately she went by herself.  She hasn't shown any interest in any of the boys in school yet, but she has time before she needs to pick a mate and settle down.  He she is in the limousine on the way to the dance.



She was an absolute vision in her white dress.  Following in her old Mom's footsteps she was voted Prom Queen by her classmates.



Only one more thing needed doing before she and Mom could return to China...Mom, now back from her trip, Laron, and I drew straws to decide who had the 'privilege' of teaching Raven to drive!  In the end Mom said she would do it.  'After all,' she said, 'I've still got a taste for adventure.  How hard could it be?'



The trip really did her a world of good and I was especially happy to have her home with us again.

And The Winner Is

Once Grams taught me how to drive it was time to pack our bags and head to Shang Simla as Mom and Dad had promised.  As soon as we arrived and unpacked I set off for the Academy.  I had two weeks to become a black belt and win the Grand Master title in the tournament, so there was no time to waste.

Grams opted for a more relaxed vacation this time and spent her days painting, visiting the friends she had made on her last trip, and emailing Mom to keep her updated on my progress.



I earned the title of Timber Terminator on my first day at the Academy.



Within a couple of days I had earned a level 9 black belt and had learned to zenoport by meditating.



And I entered every ranked sparring tournament I could find.

Eight days into our trip I had accomplished nearly all my goals.  I was the youngest Grand Master of the tournament ever and I had earned my level 10 black belt.  All that was left to do was to practice my meditation.  By the time we left Shang Simla I had completed 150 hours of meditation and maxed my athletic skill to boot.  With all of this preparation I was going to do well at my chosen career when the time came.

We arrived home to some unexpected news.  While we were away Grim had come for Lulu.  Roux was so depressed that she just moped around the house.  Finally, unable to stand seeing poor Roux suffer, Mom adopted a little, gray cat named Dumpling.



Mom also had some good news for us.  She had been out collecting the profits from our real estate holdings when she came across a unicorn!



There were some other changes when we got home...boys started paying attention to me all of a sudden.  I found myself attracted to two in particular...

Parker Lane...



...and Laron Lynn. 



I also earned a bit of a bad reputation when I became romantically involved with both of them at the same time.  People in this town are so small minded!

I continued to excel in school and tried to be a good as possible, but it just isn't easy for me like it is for Mom.  I couldn't wait to graduate and start life as an adult - I was sure things would be better then.  Fortunately I didn't have to wait very long.  The next week we celebrated a triple birthday in our house.  First Mom...



...then Dad...



...and finally me.



The next day was graduation!  I followed in Mom's footsteps again and was the class valedictorian.  Mom, Dad and Grams were so proud of me as I stood before my classmates and gave my speech.  Even the gnomes back at home were cheering me on.



Now it was time to get my dream job.  I headed over to Rustler's Den and dazzled the boss with my martial arts skill and athletic prowess.  I was a shoe-in for the job and sure enough, I had a voice mail when I got home letting me know I should start the next day at 10 am.

I leave you with one last celebration.  At age 76 Mom tasted her first ambrosia!

Congrats on the second immortal! I'd go with Parker since I agree with Ricalynn  that being with someone who has your dad's name is kinda creepy...

Congratulation on immortal number two your second dynasty is very inspiring it made me want to do another dynasty in the new town. Especially now that I know it is possible to find all the elements needed for ambrosia.

Life or Something Like It

After my graduation we settled into a waiting game.  Parker and Laron were both finishing up high school, so I had to cool my heels until one of them had a birthday.  This gave me time to think about who my ideal choice for a husband would be.  Both had fine traits - Parker was childish and would no doubt be a wonderful father some day.  Laron loved the outdoors and could take over gardening responsibilities from Dad.  Both were handsome.  Decisions, decisions!

I started my career and quickly earned several promotions. 



Both Mom and Dad were contemplating retirement, but decided that they would get bored quickly if they didn't work at least a couple of days a week.  Grams was still painting and sculpting every chance she got and all of our dear departed ones started coming back for visits.

First Lulu...



...then Roux...



...and Gramps rounded out our trio of ghostly visitors.



He and Grams picked up where they left off.



And he managed to startle Roux.  Silly dog doesn't know she's a ghost, too!



We also had a couple of new additions to the family.  You've already met our cat, Dumpling.  We adopted a foal named Eclipse and a dog named Kimo.




Kimo has found his favorite sleeping spot in Mom and Dad's room.



And he hangs out with Roux when she visits.



It was a happy time all in all, but I was anxious to settle down and start a family.  Finally one day I got the phone call I'd been waiting for...

'Hey, Raven,' he said.  'I'm having a birthday party this evening and I'd like you to come.'
'Sure thing, handsome, what would you like for your birthday?'
'Just put a bow on and show up.  That's the only present I want!'

My decision had been made.  The only thing left to do was find a bow and that ring I set aside for just such an occasion.

The Wedding That Almost Wasn’t

His mom met me at the door.

‘Come on in, Raven, everyone’s in the living room.  He’ll be so happy you could make it!  Honey, look, Raven’s here!’ she called.

‘Hey you,’ he said with his most winning smile…the one that always makes me melt.
‘Happy Birthday!  I thought this day would never get here,’ I sighed and wrapped my arms around his neck to give him the first kiss in what seemed like an eternity. 

The party went on until the wee hours of the morning, full of food, nectar, dancing and general merriment.  We never got a moment to ourselves where I could give him the little gift box that was burning a hole in my skirt pocket and ask him the question that was foremost in my thoughts.  Would he say ‘Yes’?  Would he want a child and would he be willing for that child to become immortal one day?  By the time I got home from the party I was in such turmoil that I barely slept the rest of the night.

The following morning I went outside to my zen garden to break some space rock blocks.  There’s no better way to burn off nervous energy than exercise.  I was so focused on the block in front of me that I never heard the gate open…never heard him steal up behind me until he slipped his arms around my waist.

‘You’re lucky I didn’t toss you to the ground like a sack of potatoes, mister,’ I exclaimed with false bravado.
‘Hmmm, sounds kind of fun,’ he snarled in return.
I turned to face him and knew it was now or never.  Dropping to one knee I brandished the little box with a flourish and asked the question that had kept me tossing and turning all night…

‘Laron Lynn, will you marry me?’



All the squealing and jumping around that followed was a bit embarrassing.  When Laron finally calmed down I slipped the ring on his finger and we sealed our pledge with a hug.



‘I hope you don’t believe in long engagements,’ I said tentatively.
‘I’ve known you were the one for me since the day we met in high school,’ he replied.  ‘I think we’ve waited long enough, don’t you?’

We decided on the spot that my bachelorette party would be the next evening and our wedding would take place the following afternoon.  Nothing fancy, just our families and some friends in the yard at my house…just like Mom and Dad had done.  Speaking of Mom and Dad, I needed to let them know about the engagement.  They had met Laron a while back and liked him well enough, although Dad thought it was a bit creepy that I should marry someone with his name.  I told Dad he needn’t worry.  In order to keep the two Laron Faes separate Dad would remain Laron and my husband would be El (as in Laron Lynn). 

Grams was so excited about the prospect of a wedding that she brought the arch Mom and Dad were married under out of storage.  She spent the afternoon of my bachelorette party setting up the side yard with Mom while Dad played in the sprinkler and I got a day of beauty at the spa.

We held the party at a new dance club in town called The Grind.  The gritty, industrial décor belied the quality of the food and beverages.  Of course, no bachelorette party would be complete without the sparkling nectar shower…



…or the obligatory Chippendales dancer…rawr!



The debauchery lasted until the joint closed sometime around 3 or 4 am.  We all staggered home for a few hours of sleep before the wedding that afternoon.

The sleep did me a world of good.  I woke up well rested, and a well-timed application of the moodlet manager took care of the slight hangover I had.  I took a leisurely bubble bath, fixed my hair and make-up and slipped into my dress.  I looked good even if I did say so myself!  The first guests arrived around 4 pm.  By 5 we were ready to have the wedding ceremony except for one minor detail…El was nowhere to be found.  His parents called him on his cell phone and he gave them some crazy story about something else coming up.  Oh my Goddess!  This was our wedding day and my groom stood me up!  I knew he had a rebellious streak, but this was cruel beyond words. 

The sun was just sinking below the horizon when I finally reached El on his phone.  Oh how I wanted to give him a piece of my mind…to tell him how he didn’t deserve anyone like me!  But something stilled the words in my throat.  When I could finally talk I simply asked him if he wanted to meet at the nearby horse farm to talk, away from the prying eyes of our guests.  He agreed to this, so I slipped away from the party and we met as the last light of day faded into the cool oblivion of night.

‘Why didn’t you show up for our wedding?’ I asked cautiously, afraid of what the answer might be. ‘Don’t you want to marry me?’
‘Of course I want to marry you,’ he replied evenly.  ‘It’s just that I never wanted a big wedding party.  I wanted it to be just you and me.  The more I thought about having to stand in front of all those people the more I knew I just couldn’t go through with it.’
‘Well, could you go through with it now?  It’s just the two of us and I brought the rings…’ I hesitated.
‘You would give up your fancy wedding for me?’ he asked incredulously.
‘You stupid, stupid man!  Don’t you understand it was never about the wedding, it was always about you and me…about US!’

There, beneath the first twinkling stars, El and I exchanged vows, rings, and our first kiss as man and wife.



Of course there would be the devil to pay when we showed back up at the party, but for that one moment in time our world was perfect.
