Long Night 'Till Morning

Samura headed out to the graveyard to re-unite with the rest of the Dojo clan. She resurrects her first zombie.



Then casts sunlight charm. Welcome back, Kimberly!



Hello, Marivell. I think Gage has something he'd like to ask you. Welcome back!



And Doreen, lovely to see you again. You and Darcy had so few years of marital bliss.





The sun started to rise, but Samura continued.

Beatrice, hello again!



Rafael Nix, is it? Dewayne had so many children, I don't think we'd met.



She began to grow tired.

There were so many graves. So many fallen Dojos.



Fortunately Lilith had just the right potions for a quick pick-me-up.



Her activities began to catch the attention of the local paparazzi.

Paparazzi, writing: Looks like the head of the Dojo clan is preparing for quite the family reunion. With so many Dojos, will there even be room in town for anyone else?



Samura persisted.

Hello, JJ!



Hello, Lea!



Yet no matter how hard she tried, there was one grave that continued to defy her.



So the rumors from the other side were true, Grim would not release his hold over Carmen--at least, not until Gwenyth had jumped through his hoops.



And Samura's powers could not avail.



She hung her head in defeat, and the taste of it was bitter in her mouth.



 . . . Failure.

"I'm sorry, my daughter. This fate, I would wish on no one. Least of all . . . you."

Samura's Final Gift

Lilith: "Well dear, how are you feeling? A little nervous?"

Rhoxi: "A little. After all, I'm finally going to meet Lester! Oh, and thanks for the potions."



Lilith: "Nervous about meeting him? Sweetie, you're getting married today! Aren't you a little more nervous about that?"

Rhoxi: "Not at all! Some things are just meant to be, mom."

Lilith just shook her head. It was so strange. Her little girl was getting married. It made her think about her own life. Would she ever marry someday?



Rhoxi: "How do I look, mom? Do you think Lester will like it? What about him, did you give him the potion?"

Lilith: "You look wonderful. And don't worry about Lester; he's with your grandpas."



Rhoxi: "Awesome. Now, to become a fairy!'



Rhoxi: "Hm, we're gonna have to change these wings to pink!"



Gage: "Here you go, Lester. One young again potion, fresh from my chem lab!"



Lester: "Thanks!"



Lester: "I can't believe it! After all this time, and I'm finally going to marry Rhoxi!"



Darcy: "Welcome to the family, kiddo."



Alright everyone, let's get seated: we've got some fairies to marry!



The whole family was there, of course--except for one notable exception.



Rhoxi: "I, Rhoxi, promise to love you for the rest of my life--and now that I'm a fairy, that's a really long time!"



Lester: "I, Lester, promise to love you for the rest of my life--after all, I've waited for you for generations!"



The newlyweds celebrate with some cake, and the guests begin to mingle.



After all, this day was also a reunion for the Dojos that had been separated for so many years.

Lilith: "Mom! It's great to see you again! I hear you and dad are getting back together."



Doreen: "Of course, dear! You know, you should think about moving to France with us."

Lilith: "I'll think it over, but no promises."



Gage: "Marivell, my love! I know this is a little abrupt, but how would you like to come live with me in Sunlit Tides?"



Marivell: "I'd love to, dear! You know you're the only one for me."



Samura: "My son! Oh, Nolan, it's so good to see you again."



Gwenyth: "Mom, I don't see Carmen anywhere. Is it . . . is it true then?"

Samura: "I'm so sorry, dear. I tried, but . . . yes, it's true. Grim says he will release Carmen for nothing short of true love. After your betrayal, well . . ."



Gwenyth: "I get it, mom, and we've been over this. I'm prepared to pass whatever test Grim thinks is necessary to get Carmen back."



Samura: "I know, my daughter."

And then so softly that no one could hear her, Samura whispered, "With this final embrace--I impart to you, a portion of my witchitude."



It was strange, Samura thought, that in the end, she'd still wish she had more time.

This is so exciting. Rhoxi finally got to marry Lester!  I think I have an idea of what Gwenyth's task to get Carmen will be.

Oh, it's so wonderful to see Rhoxi and Lester together! I'm so glad Lester got to be in the family--he's a lot nicer when not a creepy old man! They're a fantastic couple.

Samura's Send Off

It was strange, Samura thought, that in the end, she'd still wish that she had more time.



Samura: "Well, daughter, if you're sure, we need to do this right now. I'm afraid I don't have much time."



Gwenyth: "What are you talking about, mom? We're immortal for Pete's sake. You've got all the time in the--wait a minute."



Gwenyth: "Mom, please, no! Take my deathflower, take it!"



Gwenyth: "Mom, please, I can't do this without--"



Gwenyth: "you."



As Samura's spell wrenched Gwenyth through space, the last thing she saw was her mother's ghostly face . . . and Grim.



Grim: "Well, miss Samura, ma'am. You're about the last person I expected to see today--or any other for that matter."

Samura: "It's my time. I've had a good life."



"I've known the love of both a man . . ."



"and a woman."



"I've had the three most wonderful children a mother could hope for."







"And a son-in-law as dear to me as my own."



"And best of all?"

"I've seen my descendants become as numerous as the sea I love to fish in."




Samura: "There's only one more thing that I want."

Grim: "Death?"

Samura: "No, but to get what I want, I'll have to brave it."

Grim: "You always were a stubborn woman."

Samura: "I prefer determined. Can we go with determined?"



Grim: "Very well, ma'am. So, what would you like to see first?"

Samura: "How about Bridgeport?"

Grim: "I hear it's lovely this time of year."

I love Samura's pose in the group shot.

Speaking of Samura, I like how she looks to be perma-dead. I don't think I've seen that in a Dynasty before, so kudos to that.

I like the picture of Gwenyth. She looks so scared and a little sad too.
The group photograph is amazing!

I can't believe you finished this while I was at the funeral!   I'm moving your thread over into the completed section.  I haven't caught up on my reading but I will be sending you a PM very soon to ask some important questions.

Congratulations on finishing!

Gwenyth's Dojo Dynasty

Recent events left the Dojo clan puzzled and grieving, with so many questions. Where had Gwenyth gone? Why would Samura let herself die? Would either of them ever be heard from again? What were they supposed to do now?



One Dojo, however, seems significantly less puzzled than the rest.

Rhoxi: "Thank you all for gathering here to--ah, my ring! I'm so happy to be a newlywed!"



Rhoxi: "Um, ahem! As I was saying. Gage, as the new patriarch of the family, I believe this is for you."



Gage: "A book? Thank you, Rhoxi; I do love books! But I'm a little confused."

Rhoxi: "It's the last one I ever wrote. Samura shared some of what was coming with me, before she---well.

I think if you read it, it will give you at least some of the answers."



Rhoxi: "It's called Gwenyth's Dojo Dynasty."



Gage: "I see, so Gwenyth has left to found her own dynasty in order to get Carmen back. It figures; Grim's tasks are never easy.

That explains at least some of what happened, but what about Samura?"



Rhoxi: "She didn't share that part with me, but . . . I think you should all drink your young again potions and, well, we should try to carry on with our lives.

I think that's what grams would have wanted."

Gage: "To my grandmother, Samura!"



Everette: "She was a right fine woman, always well mannered."



Percival: "And a brave soul."



Darcy: "She had good taste, too. Always appreciated my best nectars."



Lilith: "She inspired me to become a witch, you know."



Everyone: "To Samura!"





Darcy: "Well, we've got a plane to France to catch."

Lilith: "Bye, dad. Fly safe."

Darcy: "You'll come visit, yes?"

Lilith: You know it, dad."



Gage: "Bye, Doreen."



Darcy and Doreen leave for France--golden sun bathed hills, the finest grapes, a ranch for their horses, and who knows how many little nooboos running around the countryside?



Gage: "And we've got a boat to catch. One way trip for four to Sunlit Tides."



Rhoxi: "Bye, mom."

Lilith: "Good-bye, sweetie. I'm so happy for you and Lester. Send me pics of the grandkids when they come, yes?"

Rhoxi: "Haha, don't worry. I won't make you wait long!"



Gage, Marivell, Rhoxi, and Lester head for Sunlit Tides--island paradise, the best fishing, and the place where shiny, happy people run barefoot along the shore. How many adorable pink-boos will soon be running around the island?



Percival: "Good-bye, Lil. Where are you headed?"

Lilith: "I'm thinking about Twinbrook. It seems like a nice quiet place for a witch to get some privacy."



Lilith heads out to Twinbrook--will she become a lone witch out in the marsh for children to tell scary stories about, or will she finally tie the knot with someone special?



Everette: "Goodbye, son."

Percival: "I'm worried about you, dad. Are you really going to stay here alone?"

Everette: "I'll be fine, just take care of yourself."



Percival heads out to destinations unknown--where will the wind carry this brave man, and will he get a second chance at the marital bliss he never had with Shawnya?



Everette remains alone in the Dojo mansion.



Afterall, I hear there's a bachelorette around here that he's just dying to meet.



Samura's Dojo Dynasty is complete, but Gwenyth's adventures have only just begun.



Good night, sweet Samura.

THE END

Whoa. I just read the whole Dynasty, and I must say, it was amazing! Congratulations on finishing it, and I can't wait to read about Gwenyth's adventures!

Seriously Rhoxi, parents are worried you're turning into some sort of trashy woohoo author! I mean, "Chained to My Desk"?? Let's get some more appropriate titles, please.

This part was my favourite throughout the whole dynasty! It really made me chuckle  ;D

Fan-tas-tic! I love Samura in the last picture!

That ending was so . . . so . . . so . . . so . . . so . . . so . . . awesome! I can't wait to read Gwenyth's Dynasty, which I hope will be a Life States since Gwenyth is such a beautiful young adult.

I've loved this dynasty since the very beginning, and it's so sad and so wonderful to see it end.

What an amazing ending. One of the best, I think. I loved how everyone is going off to do their own things. Are you going to play all of those stories? Also, I think I missed Rhoxi getting engaged to Lester somewhere--all I knew was she wanted to and next thing I know they're getting married! I too hope that Gwyneth's Dynasty will be Life States, especially since Samura gave her some witchitude...

The toast to Samura was so sweet! I'm glad Darcy gets more time with Doreen (and in France, too). He was my favorite Immortal. No disrespect to the others, of course.
I'm not pedantic! I just believe in precision of language.
