Welcome to the Pantheon Immortal Dynasty!

Though I've named this 2.0, this is like my sixth try. The biggest issue I had was my choice of spouse! I was going to use Leighton but I was so tired of seeing Agnes (no offence for Agnes lovers) that I decided to start off with the poorest and hardest of them all! You'll see who and how soon! I'm proud to say that I'm well into Generation Two now!

I've cut down on the amount of story telling. I loved my first storyline but it was a bit cumbersome to both play and write!

Read and enjoy! Plus I love comments ;)!!!

Prologue

“Sit down, my dear child. This will be a long evening for you.”

“You are afraid, I can see that in your eyes. For years your mother has warned you to stay away from the Hall of Ice and you haveve been a very obedient child. But today on your twelfth birthday she has dragged you in here without a word of explanation.”

“Fear not for it is your time to learn your destiny. You have but little choice, I fear. The mortals we preside over have far more power than the gods who set their fate.”

Chapter 1 : A Sweep of Luck



The most annoying question anyone can ask me is how I got my name.

I simply don’t know. I’ve lived in an orphanage my whole twenty one years and nobody ever cared to answer the question of who my parents were or how I got my weird name.

And by orphanage I mean a neat-and-clean-well-fed place, not an Oliver Twist horror but more of a Daddy Long Legs monotony.

I am a very normal girl living an extremely uneventful life. I just have a very extraordinary name.

I am Rhea Pantheon.

And yes I made a mistake. Something unusual did happen. That’s why I’ve decided to start a diary.

I won a sweepstake.

I don’t know why I was tempted in the first place. I knew perfectly well that I had a very unlucky streak. That was why I was still stuck at the orphanage caring for the little outcasts while all the rest had moved out.

Perhaps that’s the very reason that when luck struck me, it struck me huge!

I won a huge estate at Sunset Valley.

Of course, there were strings attached. The terms specified that I couldn’t sell it for five years. Not that it deterred me. 

I just had a little less than two thousand simleons left : money I’d carefully scrimped and saved over the years of part time work.

This was the day I had dreamed of for many years. I wasted no time in packing up my bags and catching the bus to Sunset Valley.

I fell in love with the small suburban town at first sight. It had an air of calmness and quiet beauty all around. 

My prize was a different story. In short, it frightened me. It was simply massive. There was perfectly enough room to fit in five of the orphanages I had grown up in. It was flanked by two mansions that paled the grandeur of my best dress.
And the very beauty of its locale took my breath away.

And there was another problem. I had nowhere to live in. Somehow or other, I had mistakenly assumed that the estate came with a house. Well, it was totally bare without even a tree in sight! Now it seemed that I had a huge white elephant and had to both find a job AND a place to stay.

Thankfully, the newspaper came to my rescue. My luck seemed to be still good as an advertisement asking for a nanny on 'economic wages' immediately caught my eyes!

Off I ran off to find the place before my luck ran out! 

It was at the other side of town, a neat and well-kept area but definitely not too well off. I seriously began to doubt whether 'economic' meant 'voluntary'!



I rang the doorbell nervously. A middle aged man with a perpetually tired appearance and a beer belly opened the door.

"Mr.Alvi? I saw your advertisement in the newspaper for a nanny."

He nodded and eyed me suspiciously.

"Yes, and you are?"

"Rhea, Rhea Pantheon."

"You look very young." He didn't seem all too pleased.

"I've lots of experience in caring for children."

He shook his head, frowning.

"Unfortunately my sons can be a tad too hard to manage."

"He means MEEEE...." A voice shouted in the background.



I turned around to see the promising horror. I wondered what sort of father would allow his son to run around in tight biker wear and spiked blue hair.

"This is VJ." The befuddled father frowned. "VJ. I thought you were going to your class."

"We are off Daddy." A softer voice said. Only then did i notice a sweet brow haired tot who rushed up to his father and gave a warm hug.

"Try to get a date with the nanny at least, Dad!" The teen shouted banging the front door.

"You are not married?" I asked surprised.



"Divorced." He sighed. "I'm sure you are assured that its no easy task managing the kids."

I wasn't so enthusiastic but I really needed the job.

"I'm sure I'm capable. And I'm a good cook too."



He shrugged. "Your choice." he said. "Are you new here?"

I nodded.

"Don't take me wrongly." he said. "But would you like a look around town? To the school and all"

I smiled. I knew his type. Lonely, middle aged men who were no harm if managed properly.

"Sure," I shrugged.

I have a soft spot for the Alvis, mostly because everyone hates Iqbal for his homely appearance and that's just mean, darn it. Go Rhea!

(That, and the Alvi boys are pretty darn handsome when they grow up)

Chapter 2 : For Better or For Worse

What happened next?

Actually I can't remember.

I remember that we did go around town.

I do remember that we became slightly tipsy.

And I do know that my luck ran out there in a huge big bang!!!

We did talk a lot. I learnt his wife had left him, that he barely managed a living as a report processor and that the only thing that gave him peace was fishing in the great outdoors.

His two sons were Miraj, the soft voice child and VJ, the blue haired monster. He had enrolled them in weekend classes to get a bit of peace. Both of them had a thing for war movies and to 'give a calming influence' he had enrolled them in sculpting and painting.

And I told him about my life in the orphanage.



And we ended up watching the stars.

And he asked me to go steady.



And horror! I was not to be outdone! I proposed to him!



And we made out in the park itself.



That's all I remember. I know that we didn't woo but I ended up waking up at midnight at the sofa in his home. There was no sign of drunkenness in the horror of his face.

"I'm really sorry Rhea." he mumbled. "I'm ready to take back everything and make it ok."

I was going to agree and apologize. But looking at the unease on his face I suddenly wondered why.

He was a single man with a passable income. True, but he had proven himself respectable if otherwise boring. He had not taken advantage of me in his drunkenness. And some money was better than none.

"Do you want to?"

He looked amazed.

"Are you sure?"

"Of course!"

 

We married at dawn in the park. It was a small private wedding with just the two of us exchanging rings and a wandering foal looking on.

Thumbs up! Even Icky deserves a chance for happiness and a lovely wife! To be honest, he doesn't look so bad when he ages up! Kinda sweet!

Actually, get rid of the unibrow and fix up his hair and he's not bad looking. I've seen him produce a couple of decent looking children in my games, actually. :)

Good start! I like that you've embraced a dynasty newcomer instead of the usual suspects. :D

Chapter 3 : Settling Down
« Reply #8 on: December 24, 2012, 11:53:57 AM »
Chapter 3 : Settling Down

We spent our wedding night in the park.

Now don't get any dirty thoughts! Iqbal wanted to leave his old home and move in with me. His mortgage was anyway long overdue and it was cheaper for him to let the bank retake it.

It was too dark for any moving so we spent the night chatting under the stars.

Iqbal spent some quality time fishing in the moonlight while I wondered around!



I fell in love with the foal. It was adorable. It even let me nuzzle me.




For a moment, I had a dream of a world where a shining foal would have been my wedding gift!

In reality, I was satisfied by the small house Iqbal got the workers to make.

We didn't have much money so for at first we had to be satisfied with just the wall and roofs, without any flooring or wall coverings!



Though i have to admit it didn't look that so bad on the outside!



And the house had the bare necessities though Iqbal went a bit overboard by wasting money on an expensive coffee maker without checking the price. There was no point in arguing with him because even his arguments were so sleepy!

Arguing with VJ however became a daily routine.



VJ had bought a sculpting stand on the sly (while Iqbal and I enjoyed our first woohoo!)! I dared not estimate its cost as I yelled at him.



However, everything was not unpleasant as Iqbal won a sweepstake for a free vacation and we were able to have a peaceful honeymoon while the children were left under the strict supervision of their principal!

It seems there hadn't been much supervision done because VJ was solidly chipping away when we returned! Seems like he skipped school and had spent the whole day sculpting.



He had even bought two cozy sleeping bags. Not to mention flooring and wall coverings for just his and Miraj's room!



"What shall we do?" Iqbal asked me worriedly as we stood in the kitchen eating. Yes, we stood because we didn't even have enough money to buy a table or chairs! Not to mention a sink. The stink was getting unbearable!



I frowned and pondered. Iqbal was on holiday and hadn't received his daily stipend. We were in a true mess.

Then I was struck by a brainwave.

"I'll take all the stuff VJ has crafted to the consignment store. I can get a better price over there."





And I wasn't wrong! VJ wasn't all too pleased but somehow we managed to reason with him. He registered as a professional sculptor. And we were able to buy a new sink. Not to mention making our house more 'lookable'!




I decided to start gardening because I got bored with Iqbal at work. And when he's at home, but I got used to it soon!





VJ had progressed to ice sculptors! He has a real knack at them. And he is less riotous around the house because he spends nearly all his time sculpting away as his life depended on it! Not that he doesn't get into trouble! He's failing school and I am sad to say I even have to ground him at times.

But life is not so bad, and Iqbal is not so boring, you know! He is however adamant that we don't have kids till our 'economic condition' is more stable. And I've always longed for kids of my own!

Thank You! I was myself up to the challenge of taking a different approach! And truth to be told, with the proper planning (and loads of coffee) it was doable, though it took quite a few tries!

I just let him be. He aged up soon and I quite liked his grandfatherly look!  ;D

Chapter 4 : Of Birthdays, Foundations and new-found Riches!
« Reply #10 on: December 24, 2012, 12:40:10 PM »
Chapter 4 : Of Birthdays, Foundations and new-found Riches!

And the years passed by! But what eventful years they were!

Miraj grew up.  He was a hard worker but was only able to scrape a B+ and thankfully developed a Good Sense of Humor in contrast to his brother's personality!

VJ sure had a hoot with the sparkles!





VJ insisted on giving Miraj an easel for his birthday. Miraj wasn't actually artistic but somehow they made quite a duo painting and sculpting! The only problem I had was that Miraj's grades started to take after his brother after Iqbal and I won another surprise vacation on our annivesary.




However, money started to flow in, slowly but steadily. And my dislike to VJ lessened as I saw the effort and dedication  he put in.

"I don't want to be like Pa." I heard him telling Miraj one day. "I may be a failure at school but that doesn't mean I can't be a millionaire!"

Whatever dislike he had for his father, he sure did join in the cheer when Iqbal suddenly decided to age up into and Elder out of nowhere at the middle of the night!



Iqbal retired from his nine to five job, but he didn't intend to spend his days at home idling, and dealing with VJ who kept on getting grounded!

He became self employed as a fisherman.

I also registered as a self employed gardener.



With a much more stable income, we were able to upgrade our house. Note that VJ was firm that priority should be given to 'his room' because it was 'his money'!



VJ grew up to an Adult. His life time wish is to be Swimming in Cash! His bad grades meant he developed the the mean spirited trait.



Sculpting and painting now continued inside the house. If Iqbal's sneak peeks into VJ's bank account was to be believed, he was earning in hundreds for his sculptures! It seemed that he was in love with ice and was trying to discover the secret of unmelting sculptures!

Miraj wasn't so much into earning money. He painted day and night, true, but he wanted to work for 'The Law' when he grew up! He just painted for the love of it, though they did bring in a fair sum when he occasionally decided to sell one.



Time flew and Miraj aged up too! He looked quite elvish! His LTW is to become an International Super Spy!



Then came graduation! Both of them barely scraped through.



I don't know why but Miraj was voted 'Most Likely to Have a Large Family'!!! He didn't even have a girlfriend!

VJ's title was much more understandable-he was voted as 'Most Likely to take over the World'!

He certainly had set the foundation for it by starting work at a massive house. It loomed behind our modest dwelling, in the center of the estate.

Chapter 5 : The Naming of a Heir(ess)

Chapter 5 : The Naming of a Heir(ess)

The huge house looked too formidable for words. Iqbal tried to make sense but VJ continued building. He didn't have enough money to complete it, so the house just loomed up behind us in its scaffolding and bare walls.

Despite Iqbal's constant grumbling, VJ wasn't discouraged. He and Miraj decided to make it their studio. Though Iqbal mocked the final use of the huge house, it was rather refreshing not to listen to the constant scraping and blasting VJ made sculpting.

My relationship with the boys improved gradually. Miraj turned out to be a really good friend, who helped me in the gardening, while VJ became more tolerable.

They even made me the subject of their artwork!




But the biggest gift they gave me was when they urged us to move into the new house on my birthday! Lo and behold! It was comfortably, if not completely furnished! The front of the house was a large area with just my portrait and sculpture and the rest of the house was being built behind it. They told me that the front would be their 'Grand Gallery'.



We celebrated with a huge dinner.



"This is wonderful VJ." Iqbal said beaming. "I'm proud of you." he said softly and his eyes suddenly brimmed with tears.

I could see that VJ was delighted by his father's praise though he pretended to ignore it.

"So when are you and Rhea going to have kids? Its around time or you'll kick the bucket soon!"

My heart skipped a beat. I've always longed for children.

"I hope you won't disappoint Rhea!" VJ winked at me. "For gods' sake Rhea, just make sure he doesn't give the nooboos dreadful names like he gave us!"

"Your mother chose the names!" Iqbal bristled.

Seeing a potential argument I quickly butted in.

"Just think of my name!" I said jokingly. "I rathe like Rhea but have no idea where I got the Pantheon part from!"

"Who named you after all? The orphanage people?" VJ asked curiously.

"Must be. I've heard that they chose the names randomly from two directories!"

"Well whoever did it was quite a genius." Iqbal laughed.

I looked at him inquiringly.

"I was a classics major before I dropped out of college when VJ's mother got pregnant." He said awkwardly. "Anyway pantheon means the collection of all the gods."

"What a stupid surname! So Rhea is one of a collection of gods! Ha!" VJ cackled.

"That's the very beauty of it." Iqbal said dreamily. "Rhea is the name of the mother of the gods in Greek mythology."

VJ snorted loudly.

"So any kid you have should be Zeus." he chuckled, doubling over with mirth. Iqbal just nodded dreamily.



"That's a rather good idea V had." He said as we cuddled that night in the very comfortable bed in the beautifully decorated room. "If we have a son we'll name him Zeus."

I couldn't imagine a child going around after being named Zeus! However my husband continued unperturbed. "And if its a daughter, we;; lets see, we'll name her Hestia. Hestia is a very ignored name but she was the first daughter of Rhea and Cronos. The goddess of the hearth. Yes, Hestia is a good name."

I didn't actually understand anything and merely nodded.

We tried for baby for the first time that night. We had the required financial stability and more importantly, both Iqbal and me were picking up on age.



It seems that we were lucky! Though I didn't feel so as I was reduced to leaning over the toilet and Iqbal looking over patiently. Even my gardening was interrupted by the waves of nausea.




We were very excited! And to top it Iqbal and me both got promotions. So the dough just flowed in!

However VJ was the real breadwinner. He soon became a familiar around the consignment store.

Uh huh! Seems VJ is interested in starting a family of his own! The young lady is Kaylynn Langerak and unfortunately she isn't all too charmed. I just wish she didn't have such a garish outfit and that awful haircut!



Finally its time for the baby! Ouch!



I am overjoyed to have a little girl. Welcome to the world Hestia Pantheon!

Chapter 6 : A Storm of Misfortune

Chapter 6 : A Storm of Misfortune

And times were good: till bad luck struck.

As I said long ago, I had a bad streak of bad luck. After marriage, wealth and now a beautiful daughter, I thought that it had been just an incidence of the past.

But then bad luck hit, and this time it was much worse.

My husband changed. He was aging, but he had always been sharp of mind.

Then suddenly he started to behave in an extremely eccentric manner.

"Pack me some apples Rhea." he said one morning. "I'm going off on a fishing expedition and won't be coming home today."

I didn't find anything strange in that. He was an avid fisher and had started keeping several aquariums at home. He said he wanted to breed the perfect fish.

"Where is the fishing expedition to?" I asked as I packed his food.

"Just out of town." He replied absent-minded.

He called me regularly and I wasn't worried when he didn't come home for three days. On the fourth day I started to be gradually worried but he reassured me that he would be back soon. But when he didn't get back home on the sixth day, I was frantically worried.

He finally came and my relief must be apparent.

"Don't worry." he said. "I have a huge surprise for you.

I think I got pregnant that night with our second child.

And it was no easy pregnancy. My husband used to be gone for weeks and weeks and sometimes wouldn't even answer the phone.



And then Miraj gave me a shock when he said that his father was at the graveyard.

"The locals say that he sleeps on the sidewalk in the afternoon. He apparently fishes all throughout the night." Miraj looked dazed.



"Has the old man lost his sense?" VJ cackled.

I glared at him. "This is not funny." I started to snap when Miraj interrupted.

"He is in perfectly good sense. I spoke to him and he answered very sensibly. We talked for like two hours till he sent me home. The only wooey thing he said that the ghosts were pretty colourful."



I wringed my hands. "Why didn't you bring him home?"

"He refuses to come. He said he'll be home next week."

As promised, Iqbal was back home next week. He was very normal. He laughed and joked and played with Hestia and talked about the new baby.

"Lets name it Athena if its a girl or Aries if its a boy."

I smiled. I've also started to read on the pantheon and was enjoying the stories of the old gods and their adventures.

That was just one of my few smiled. I could see that Iqbal was wheezy and his age was starting to show. I knew his time would come soon and I wanted him to be at home.

Perhaps he knew that because he said good bye gently when kissing my forehead that night. When I awoke at dawn, he had already left.

It was deemed to be our final good bye.

Death came to him quite peacefully, they said. A young homeless man was camping with him in the graveyard and they were having lunch together. He was in perfectly good humour and joking around.

Then the Grim Reaper had appeared.



"Ah Alvi, there you are." Reaper had cackled.

Iqbal had looked somewhat startled but not afraid.

"Why Reaper, you are late. I expected you much more earlier" He had said conversationally.

"How was I supposed to know you were loitering here in the graveyard? I searched all over the place and out of all the places, you chose to be here, at my very own place!" Reaper had growled.

Iqbal smiled. "I'm ready." He had said quietly. "But I have one wish." He had added and fallen down to his knees. "Pray let me live to see my unborn daughter."



The Reaper had cackled hysterically. "You've already outstayed your time man. Come on!"

Iqbal had laughed back suddenly.

"I know a way to defy you." Had been his parting words as he rose from his feet and followed the Reaper to the grave.

I think this is the first time I've ever been saddened by Iqbal's passing. So heartbreaking that the new little one won't get to know his/her father.

I do love the way that you are writing this, fleshing out the personalities in the Alvi family. Fantastic update. :)

It was so haunting. The graveyard death wasn't planned though, but the time was right, but even I didn't expect it to be so haunting.

Thank you Raia :)! I'm trying my best to add more in-depth to the characters.

I never felt much either for Iqbal before other than feeling vaguely sorry for having such a tough time. Playing the dynasty, I became quite fond of him. And the death was rather horrific for me :'( .

Chapter 7 : Three Milestones

Chapter 7 : Three Milestones

Iqbal's death would change my life forever. Yes, that's obvious for any widowed spouse, but for me, it was a change of the whole of my life direction. And all because of three very significant events. These milestones were to change the course of many lives.



Firstly, my daughter Athena was born.

Athena saw the world on the eve of her father's demise. It was a extremely difficult premature labour. I was in utter shock and feared for my life. But Athena was a survivor. She was born perfectly healthy and strong.

Even in her toddler days, there was something special about Athena. Her late father had been right in the choice of names. She was extremely brilliant and far surpassed her sister Hestia in learning skills.

Athena was special.

Child, you may not be standing in this Hall of Mirrors were it not for her. She though mortal and long gone, was the creator of our destinies.




Second, VJ asked me to take the helm of the family business a few months after Iqbal's death. To be honest, VJ had always been the unofficial head, and Iqbal had never had a say but after Iqbal's death, VJ decided he had too much on his hands.

"I can't do it Rhea." He said in his usual brusque manner. "It bores me to death."

I was touched. "But VJ you built the business from scratch."
 
"Of course I did woman," he snapped. "Its just that people need a pretty face to convince them!"

Ah! You couldn't simply feel tender-hearted towards VJ for long!

However, I had to go through a total makeover to take the persona of a responsible businesswoman. To my surprise and VJ's disgruntle, I realized I did have the steed within me.

This also, of course, included a physical transformation!



Finally, I rediscovered love and passion. However, it is the only point of my life that I look back in shame.

I fell in love with a married man.

He was Geoffery Landgraab. His wife was a heiress and he was an eminent surgeon. They had a son, but that's another story.



I met him in the park one day and we the discussion immediately turned to business. It was follwored by a business meeting. but then things started going out of the path.

Perhaps it was because he was in a turning point of life after retirement. Perhaps it was because I was lonely. Whatever, the transition from business contact to lover was extremely quick.





Yes, we became lovers that night and woohooed. To this day I feel a pang of guilt when I lecture against those casual flings.

But at the end of the day, its impossible to deny that Sunset Valley's oldest and richest blood was preserved all because of these 'casual flings'!
