Again, thank you all for your kindnesses - I admit to a certain joy to Valor and his language, though I do not think I can write Male as well as Female.

But, I am trying!

Dear Mother,

By your long silence, I can only surmise you disapprove of my son's existence. If the manner in which he came about distresses you, then I am sorry for it. But, I am not sorry for my unworthy feelings towards the other clan. If nothing else, at least I am honest when it comes to the darker emotions (you would be surprised by the number of these mortals who all pretend that they have nothing but joy and happiness and good in their hearts). After all, was it not Her Royal Grace who once showed us that there can be no shadows without light, and no light without shadows?

In the end, Mother, I did not make that clan my enemy by my actions towards Kara. Nay, they made an enemy of me when they moved to have me exiled! And for what, your mate's bloodlines?

I will admit it is most petty of me, but I am what I am.

There is much news to be had, Mother. The first is that the two felines we had acquired, Maya and Coal, passed within days of one another. They were the best of friends, and while Maya passed first, I do not think Coal wanted to live without her.





Before they passed, however, they did hunt enough fish and sea life that I built a pond on the property in which to keep these fish. Everything, Mother, from the common anchovy to the elusive mummyfish of Egypt, the exotic dragonfish of China, the slippery frogs of France. Once the landscaping of the pond is complete, I will send you some photos. I hope it would meet with His Royal Grace's approval.

Grace continues her employment at the Bistro (she says that is where a true culinary artist can soar). However, she does not permit me to enclose photos of her, she finds the required uniform dowdy.

Constance grew from an adorable toddler into a lovely young woman. She also has fully blossomed, and while she is a Hopeless Romantic like her forebears, she is also very Charismatic, Disciplined, Athletic, and...a Kleptomaniac (this last amuses me greatly).

She and Faith embarked on a holiday to China where she learned the arts of martial combat. Antonio was somewhat apprehensive about this, for Constance is a most...voluptuous...female, but thankfully, her metabolism is high enough to keep her slender. She became learned enough on this holiday to take part in a tournament.







Oh, and we did have a small scare with Sam and metal sculpting! Fortunately, Faith was able to extinguish those flames quickly.


Sam had enormous strength of will - he was determined to see his granddaughter graduate from school (again, as valedictorian) - and he did! He managed to hold on to this mortal life until that same evening, when Death came calling.




Faith and Grace were concerned that Constance might turn away from her duty of finding herself a mate...I do not think they needed to worry. Meet Carmen Eller - he was just leaving school as she was entering, so is a good bit older than her. But he is a fine man.

Dear Mother,

Here are some photos from Constance's nuptials. Her bridegroom, as I said, is named Carmen (his parents truly wanted a daughter, it seems). He is a fan of Hip Hop music, Crepes, and the color of Pink (as I said, a daughter!). His starsign is that of Aquarius. He is quite Good, very Family-Oriented and Charismatic, though he is also a Kleptomaniac like Constance. His only downside is that he is rather Inappropriate (I do not fully understand his "yo mamma" jokes, nor his "that's what she said" jokes). I hope that with his marriage, that will change.





When Constance was a teenager, she purchased the park property across the street, and set it up to be appropriate for a wedding venue. So naturally, she and Carmen decided that is where they should marry.

Mother, there are rumors abound that Death is especially attracted to parties and large social gatherings, much like a moth to a flame. I had dismissed them, but...it is true! A family friend, Christy, was taken by Death at the wedding.







It distressed Constance so much, she and Carmen ended the gathering prematurely, and opted to simply marry at home privately.






As I said, Carmen is very Family-Oriented, and persuaded Constance to start a family almost immediately.


Meet her daughter, Charity.


And Mother, Grace is another to join our ranks.

I really like this Dynasty story, Shirin! Valor has a very poetic style, and you write it very well. I can also say that I've never seen Sam used in a Dynasty, and I'm so glad you did. (I have a soft spot for Sam.) I'll definitely continue reading this. Good luck!

Sam was a dynasty spouse in both the Smiths and Katluvr's Starrs too.

I really love the lyrical flow to this story. I wish I could write half as well.

Thanks so much, everyone  :)

I'm currently halfway through Charity's toddlerhood, but so far, Constance is my favorite pretty heiress. I've been letting the girls pick their own husbands (though in Sam's case, he picked his own wife!)

*Sam came home with Faith, and I queued up the "Do homework with..." action. Then he kissed her. I fell over laughing
*Grace went to prom solo, and had a big red heart for Antonio at the end
*Constance went to prom solo, and had a big red heart for Carmen at the end. Unfortunately, he somehow spent high school unemployed, and when he became engaged - OH LOOK, he's a babysitter. So he's a full life stage ahead. But it's working out well so far.

I'll try to get other shots in - the fish pond and fish gallery, for one (the kitties really did dig up every single WA fish at least 11 times between them).

Dear Mother,

Life is slow and easy here. Antonio grew older with each passing day, as does little Charity. She is so much like her grandfather in appearance! As you know, I have Her Royal Grace's hair colour...as do you and grandmother. As does my daughter Faith, my granddaughter Grace, and my great-granddaughter Constance.




Not Charity, oh no. Her hair is black as pitch - it could be attributed to her father, of course, but personally, I think Antonio's colouring skipped a generation. In addition to her grandfather's hair, Charity also has his eyes. Light lavender, almost like wisteria back home.

But as you know by my second sentence, Antonio's time came to an end. Death came for him while he was in the basement, upgrading a "stereo" for some reason (a "stereo" is a confusing metal box that produces music. I do not know how they stuff the conductor and orchestra inside of them!).





Grace was the first to reach her beloved mate, and I think this is when the truth finally struck - Death would take her mate from her, and her daughters' mates throughout the years.


Constance was inconsolable at the loss of her sire. I believe she was hoping he would be able to live long enough to see his granddaughter graduate, as Sam did for Constance. I am not certain what Carmen told her to ease her pain, but I believe it was similar to his belief that Antonio's heart was so big, even Death wanted him for a friend.


Even Charity knew something was amiss. I can tell this little one will have the intelligence and wisdom of His Royal Grace.


Before Death departed this domicile, though, he was kind enough to finish cleaning the kitchen for Grace (and rightly so, considering he interrupted that work by taking her mate!).




I hope to have more news later, Mother.

Dear Mother,

As happens when a mortal passes on, we each returned to our hobbies and tasks. Grace cooked and cleaned. Constance was constantly exercising, ensuring she had lost her "baby fat" (she has not been fat as a baby since she was, well, a baby!). Carmen played with his daughter.



He is working steadily towards his career as a magician. Faith told me that Carmen actually wishes to impress me! I think, however, I would be more impressed if he convinced this particular mortal that cavorting about the community in nothing but a bath towel was unwise (an unfortunate incident at the swimming pool has not yet convinced this mortal Lorenzo Kimball that he should work on his strengths to compensate for his...shortcomings).


Strange, these mortals.

Faith did some painting, but she decided to take up the study of statuecraft (fortunately, the water closets are not too far).



As for me, I took little Charity to the local library, reading to her all she will need to know about the study of maths, sciences, and logic. Mother, if I fail, I truly believe that Charity will be the one to restore us. I see in her the same brightness of His Royal Grace, the same quick mind and intelligence. It is truly spooky.


But she has a wondrous friend she has named Jared. She keeps telling us that he speaks to her and they are best of friends.


I also did something most unwise. I decided to try my hand at training equine. I adopted this lovely little filly named Pepper, but I did not realise she was newly foaled! Nevertheless, with so many willing to help our little orphan, I am shamed to admit that Charity's birthday passed without at least a photo.


And shortly thereafter, that child forced us to admit she was right. Her friend Jared - her invisible friend Jared - turned into a mortal right before my eyes!


That child is too smart for her own good!

Dear Diary -

I'm worried about Dad. It's been so long since Mom died, and I thought he'd found love again with Kara. Well, he does love her, but it's a sort of...I don't know, an old person love. Like he loves a friend, or an ideal. I guess it's a good thing Kara didn't want to get married.

Instead, every Monday, he sits down and eats this awful fruity fishy...garbage. The fruit would be ok, but the fish? Not even fit to fertilize the garden! I'd rather have it fertilize the landfill. And now he's gone and gotten it into his head that Gracie and I should have to eat that nasty stuff every week too!

Yuck!

Poor Gracie, Dad won't let her make it. He just keeps telling us to get it from the replicator. Antonio upgraded the memory in the replicators, so they hold twice the food in their data banks. And then what does Dad do? He lets Gracie start to make one of those things - and then stops her from finishing it! Instead, he took the half-finished bowl and stored the half-cooked crap in it...using all three memory slots.

Diary, that means we had sixty copies of that!

Maybe the reason it tastes so terrible is because of how it was half finished when it was stored.

But that's not the worst part, Diary. Dad had dug a pond (more like a trench!) by the side of the house years ago. Well, he decided recently it wasn't a proper restful area. So he dug another pond at the back of the property, and planted a tree and some flowers. And once he was satisfied with the landscaping, Gracie and Dad and I had to go fishing in the pond-trench so we could stock the new pond...so Dad could fill in this big gaping wet hole in the ground.









It's actually very pretty, but I think Dad's become delusional in his old age, Diary.

He keeps saying that it will appeal to Her Royal Grace (whoever that is!) and we need to keep eating that terrible replicated stuff so we can meet our royal forebears (Mom was rich, sure, but not royalty! And Dad? A handsome ne'er-do-well, according to Mom). Oh, and he was muttering something about "that Clan" and "exile" and something about his mother. My grandma would be dead! I mean, heck, I'm a great-grandma!

Diary, I think something is going on. Dad is up to something, and just gets mad if we ask. I guess we'll wait it out and see, but...

I'm pretty sure we won't like the answer.

Thanks, Diary.

Dear Mother,

Please forgive my extended silence. I regret very much that it appears this household has engaged in...what is it called? A rut, I believe. We have since installed a mechanical heated spring (the mortals call it a 'spa'), but it seats only four. We have an object that encourages jumping (called a 'trampoline'), but only two can use it without injury to others.

So my days are filled with routine - I get up, work in my garden, then relax in the spring spa. Faith gets up and usually relaxes in the spa, except when the urge to paint or photograph or sculpt overtakes her. Grace cleans the house, cooks enough to store in the icebox, and then also relaxes in the spa (or jumps on the trampoline). Constance has been working in her criminal career, though she is frequently arrested for theft. When she is not working, she is breaking rocks from outer space to provide us with many gemstones. Carmen had reached the pinnacle of his career, and has since retired. He now spends the days lazing around in the spa and helping around the house.

As for Charity and her friend Jared?

I suppose every little girl dreams of having her prince come to life.







They did go to this prom together. Jared was voted the King, and Charity the Queen.






Otherwise, they spent their days studying together. Jared studied gardening and fishing and handiness, he wishes to study science. And Charity studied all sorts of logic. She has opted to go into ghost hunting. No healer is this girl!


Oh, and this photo shows her playing chess in Egypt. That was Faith's graduation present to Charity and Jared, this trip.


I hope to write more shortly, Mother. My heart aches to be away from you, knowing I have no siblings to ease your sorrow.

Dear Mother,

It would appear the holiday to Egypt was relaxing. Faith also took Constance with her (Carmen pleaded old age), and so Constance spent some time breaking more of the space rocks. Jared, I understand, was upgrading appliances around the palace. Charity was challenging others to chess matches, and Faith was hacking into computers.



Computers are mysterious little picture boxes that connect to other picture boxes and somehow exchange information. I do not understand this, and Charity's attempt to explain just made me cross.

But it would appear the holiday was most relaxing to Jared and Charity.





When they returned, Jared presented her a troth ring that he had obtained in Egpyt. "A diamond as brilliant as my princess," I heard him say. Smart male, he knows that the secret to a happy marriage!






Not too much more has occurred here, except that Charity is already well known about this town as fighting malicious spirits of the dead.


Oh! While I am sure you must know now, I feel compelled to confess that Constance is the thief who stole the fox of Her Royal Grace's brother. That's right, my daughter thieved her many times great uncle's golden fox.


I cannot deny, I laughed most heartily when I saw it.

But with that done, Mother, Constance has now joined our ranks.



It cannot be soon enough done, Mother.

My apologies for the lengthy delay between posts, I really did hit a rut where I'm just waiting on Charity to be a mommy and Carmen to kick off the mortal coil. I'm not inclined to renovate the house yet again, though I may build Constance's board breaker area outside instead of in the gymnasium.

But Charity's baby should be forthcoming in a few days, so hopefully the rut will break...*fingers crossed*

Dear Mother,

Charity and Jared are parents! Because she was with child, she took some time off to focus on her chess championship. At least until she went into labor.







You would think that elderly vampires, being long lived, would not have...issues...about laboring women.


Shortly after this, though, Constance's mate, Carmen, passed on. He pleaded to be allowed to see his granddaughter grow up, but Death said no.




Mother, meet Prudence. As you can see, her hair color is a throwback to Her Royal Grace. And though she is resting in this picture, her eyes are the same shade of green as Carmen's.


I will keep this brief, but I wanted to add two other things. The first is that your spying sneaking gnomes are peculiar.


And the second is that vampirism tends to cause lighter pigmentation, but I wonder what causes this.


As always,
Your devoted son

Grandmother,

You don't know me, but my name is Faith. Father tells me almost nothing of you - or me or anyone else, for that matter - and he certainly doesn't talk about who the royal people are that we're supposed to be related to. It's maddening!

But I love my father. And every so often when he's writing these letters, he gets this sad look in his eyes. Once he told me it's because you can't see our family.

Well, I can't bring you here, and I guess you can't come here anyway. And since I'm technically the family photographer, I thought I might take some pictures and send them to you. I didn't think you wanted pictures of bored old people, but I did take some of Charry and Pru. Charry is probably the most devoted mother of us all, since I never took Gracie (or Connie or Charry) to the park.

So here's a couple of Charry teaching Pru to talk. And about how it's important to love a man before having a baby.





And the infamous Clawhand also attacked Pru. The poor baby!




But I have to admit, Grandmother, the best was probably the Spring-Rider adventures. Pru liked the seahorsie and riding around like all little mermaids do.


And riding the piggies like all farmers.


And being a good cosmonaut. "Space Station One-Alpha-Nine, there are reports of an angel out here in space. But she has a big butt! I can't tell if it's safe to proceed through the intersection!"


Clearly, she really liked being a cosmonaut.


Here are a couple from her birthday party.




Oh crap! Gotta go, Father doesn't like it when I sneak through his office. Hope you like the photos!

Dear Mother,

I trust Faith's missive finds you well. Prudence is quite the mischievous little imp, but over the years, she has become more studious. Though not as logical as Charity, and so Charity tutors her in homework.



However, we have discovered that Prudence prefers to dabble with inventing metal objects. She makes decorations she calls widgets - I suspect it is a fancy name, and makes one think it serves a purpose beyond being decorative. She makes metal toys (the wisdom of sharp metal objects and small children is questionable, but then, I am what I am. Who knows with these mortals?).




Though, this hobby of hers has led to a very unamusing incident not unlike Sam's and Faith's from so long ago.


Charity, for her part, has become a top-notch ghost hunter. The mayor even offered her a key to the city in a grand ceremony, but when she arrived at the ceremony, the mayor appeared to have forgotten about it. I suppose that is what happens when multiple vampires collapse on the steps to City Hall! Charity swears she heard the mayor mutter something about how a vampire hunter would have been as equally desired as a ghost hunter - at least ghosts do not faint in sunlight.

She was also working on her chess tournament status, but Death was not cooperative. He came for her opponent, Vasyl Trahan, at the start of a match. And then, after doing his reaping, he donned one of our fantasy goggles. He became so engrossed in it, he was practicing his acrobatics!







Not much more to add, Jared and I have expanded the garden to work on an experiment. I have remodeled the house yet again - we are back to two floors, and consolidated many of the rooms. Prudence celebrated her teenage birthday, registered with City Hall as a self employed inventor, and gives me her metal things to sell for her. She is quite the lovely young woman.

In fact, Prudence cornered me the other night, said she had been doing some traveling in her time machine. Yes, a machine that allows her to travel the pathways of time. Prudence is most amazing in her inventions, but I digress. She said she had been doing some traveling in her machine, and came across something called an alternate timeline. It was quite complex, but I believe the gist was that, in the beginning, there is only one of us. And for each choice in life we make, another alternate possibility is created. And for each choice made in each alternate possibility, two more alternates are created. And so on, and so forth. Then it become impossible for my old mind to comprehend.

It appears that in this alternate timeline, she came across another line of sons and daughters descended from my Agnes. In this line (they are called the Starrs), they had one daughter whose beauty outshone all others - this one was called Joanna Starr. In fact, Prudence was able to acquire an image of this Joanna Starr, and showed it to me. I agree, she is quite lovely! But Mother, as a devoted patriarch, I feel it only fair to tell you that I am a firm believer that Prudence is as beautiful as Joanna.

This makes me wonder if perhaps it is something in Agnes' heritage that imparts such visions of loveliness into the world.

Alas, I will have to have Faith find a way to tear Prudence away from her gadgets to take a proper photograph and send to you. In the meantime, this is the most...common...image we ever see of Prudence. When she is not at school, that is.

Thank you so much, Audren :) And I agree, the Starrs are a favorite of mine as well.

My next challenge - remember to take pictures of Pru that don't involve views of her back.

 

anything
