Chapter 211: The beginning of the end
« Reply #721 on: January 09, 2013, 04:39:17 PM »
Klara's post script

With the end of the dynasty something changed in the air. The watcher, fickle creatures that she is, had already moved on to new challenges and projects. It was up to us to sort this whole future out. But then again, have we not always been the captains of our own destiny?

Beata: Mom, I'm going to miss you too, but I'm an elder now, an immortal. It's time I stretched my wings and flew free.



Greta: I can't believe you're moving out! It feels like only yesterday when I was getting concerned phone calls from your teachers and grandma F had to help you with your math homework.


Beata: Mom! Now you're going to make me cry.
Greta: Don't cry honey. And if you ever feel like coming home again, my arms are always open.
Beata: I love you!
Greta: Love you too sweetheart.



Klara: Wait, wait. I have something for you...
Beata: What is this?
Klara: A surprise, use it wisely.
Beata: I'm going o miss you grandma K.
Klara: I'm going to miss you too. Now go out in the world and create fashion!
Beata: You bet!

Good luck kiddo.
Have fun, sell the car if money is tight, and drive responsibly.
Eyes on the road!
Your grandma F



Cary came over and he and Greta waved goodbye to their daughter together. It was pouring down rain, and I think there was a tear or two on their cheeks as well. Letting go of your children is never easy, no matter how old they are...


Cary was on his way home again when lightning struck one of the maids. We had heard large booms before, but this was the first time anyone had witnessed someone almost dying. We were all a bit frazzled.


Greta: Wait! I don't wan't you to go out in that storm.
Cary: I won't if you don't want me to. I'll just sleep here tonight. It will be nice to have company anyway, I'm going to worry about Beata.
Greta: I don't wan't you to spend the night...
Cary: You don't?
Greta: I wan't you to move in with me, for god.
Cary: That has been my fondest wish for ever, but staying away gave me Beata, and that I can never regret.



Greta: Beata isn't a concern any more.
Cary: I guess it's just you and me then?
Greta: Oh Cary, why don't you and I get some private time?
Elise: I told you she always says that!
Selma: Oh, hush! Why do you always have to be right?

That's a really nice ending. I'm so sad this dynasty is over.  :'(

There's actually quite a bit left of the ending. It's just going to take some time to play through. I like these characters so much I can't let them go just yet.

When it's really, really over. It will say "the end" in  big black letters...

Chapter 212: Taking care of business
« Reply #723 on: January 09, 2013, 05:10:34 PM »
Dear diary (and anyone else who want's to know),

Leaving the house on the hill was in many ways rather anticlimactic. Sure I drove of in a fancy car, and there was a thunderstorm and everything, lending it a sinister ambiance. But I was for all intents and purposes all dressed up with nowhere to go. I didn't want to stay in Sunset Valley, one lifetime was enough, but I didn't want to leave without Lydell either. Having waited for so long for love, I didn't wan't to lose it again.

So, I rented a temporary home while I took care of business. I know I could have stayed with the grandmas, but honestly, I'd had enough. The house is a bit bland, but since I'm renting it furnished I guess I can't really complain. Besides, who cares about furniture when you have the love of your life in your arms?



I gave him one of the flasks grandma K gave me, and he was so happy.

Lydell: You want to share this with me?
Beata: I wouldn't even use it without you, what would be the point?



I could transcribe out conversation of "no you go first, no you" but I don't think anyone would be terribly interested in it. What matters is that we drank the potions together.


And the annoying sparkles never fail to mess up my hair.

Beata: I swear this happens every time!



Lydell: Really? I hadn't noticed.


Beata: Will you take pity on me on this my horrid hair day and become my wedded husband?


Lydell: It's, it's, it's a ring! You wanna marry me?!


I'm so excited, I just can't hide it. I'm about to loose control and I think you like it...


The ring fit perfectly around his finger. I'm lucky that I have a guy who likes bling, just as much as I do.


And he has hair that smells super nice. Note to self, must ask about his shampoo.


We ended the evening like any soon to be wed couple. Oh, that paining? A gift from grandma E, it's in my colors so she said I should take it.

Yay for happiness and new beginnings :)

In some ways, it really isn't the beginning of the end ... but rather the end of the beginning :)

Yay for united love and second chances! I'm so glad that Beata and Lydell are together, and that Cary and Great are finally able to live under the same roof! I'm actually kind of tearing up here...gosh I'm such a hopeless romantic... <sniff!>

Chapter 213: A wedding like no other
« Reply #726 on: January 09, 2013, 06:07:51 PM »
Beata: I love what you are wearing. It's so you!
Lydell: I love what you are wearing too!
Beata: I can't believe we are getting married!
Lydell: Me neither.
Beata: I can't believe we're shrieking like we are.
Lydell: This whole think kind of got out of hand. Let's stop now.
Beata: OK! Uhm, I mean, sure, fine.



We had a smalish party. I only invited the Meredith's and the Bacon's (it cracks me up every time!). And family of course.


Everyone was excited about the ceremony, including a stray dog who took interest.


I performed a last test to see if Lydell really was the man for me, my dog imitating ways and everything. He didn't even bat an eyelash so he's a keeper.


The grandmas bawled their eyes out, but no one cried louder than mom. You would have thought this wasn't a wedding but a funeral.


Lydell held a surprisingly eloquent and emotional speech before we cut the cake, and grandma K didn't know what to do with herself. 


That or she's trying to flatten her wrinkles. No matter what, it looks painful.


The cake was delicious and the grandmas totally decimated it. And they say they aren't anything like ravening wolves?


I was so happy all day, but Lydell just couldn't let go of the little unfortunate accident we had last night (yes honey, I understand that the robber took the bathtub, but we have a new one now, and it's even better than the last). Sorry about that.


As the sun was setting we danced together, slowly...


...and then he spun me around all of a sudden and everyone went wild on the dance floor! It was party time!


I danced with mom. It was bitter sweet knowing it would be the last dance in a while.


Then it was dad's turn, and we shimmied all over the dance floor.


My dad, I'm going to miss him so much!

Cary: ... and you take care over there, you here?
Beata: You know I will. And you and mom, you be careful too, all right?
Cary: We'll be fine.
Beata: I've heard some roumours...
Cary: This is your day honey. We didn't want to take any attention away from you and Lydell.
Beata: I wish I'd still be here...
Cary: In every way that counts, you will be.
Beata: Bye dad.
Cary: Bye honey.



Beata: I really liked your outfit today.
Lydell: I liked yours too.



Beata: Guess what I'd like right now?
Lydell: What?
Beata: To see what you've got underneath...



This is the last you'll see of us in a while. We're boarding out plane early tomorrow for our honeymoon, and then we're going straight for our new home. 


We'll send a post card and let you know we're settling all right.

Me too! Who would have ever guessed? ::)

I like to think so anyway. And I'm going to try to give you all a glimpse of where they are headed.

I cannot express how happy this all makes me.  Epilogues are the best parts of the dynasties!  Hmm, where are they off too?  They seem like a Lunar Lakes kind of couple ...

I think Beata would be awesome in Lunar Lakes. Or Hidden Springs. Or Sunset Valley, really. PLEASE don't send her to Twinbrook. She would die of grayness.

A bit late with my congratulations for finishing your dynasty!
Truly a wonderful story you told.
