Prologue
 
  Here I stand, on the most remote corner of my empty lot. Across from my desolate little patch of grass is a lovely pond, bordered by two opulent mansions--one old-fashioned, comfortable, and nearly barn-like in coloring. The other is cotton-candy pink, elegant and expensive, practically dripping with wealth.
 
 Oh, how rude I am--not even introducing myself!


 
 Hi, I'm Serena. My surname is Elysi--well, my parents' last name was Warthinghall, but who wants to read about the Warthinghall Immortal Dynasty? Besides, I think Elysi sounds like a magical last name, like an elf or dryad.


 
 Sadly, I am neither elf nor dryad, but it just so happens that I am a witch.


 
  Now, before you start calling me "the immortal witch" or "Her Witchiness," I would have you know that I prefer to be addressed as "She Who Is Gifted With Magical Capabilities." I mean, "witch" is such a derogatory term now, isn't it?


 
  Once, I was in line at the supermarket, and the rudest little man bumped into me! I tried to apologize, but he called me a witch and said I should watch where I am going. Naturally, I turned him into a toad.



  Regrettably, in order to come here and become the founder of an Immortal Dynasty I was forced to give up my magical and culinary
knowledge. I aspire to become a 5-Star Chef, and guide my descendants to the Hall of Fame.


 
After being stuck in the Sim Bin when my house in Starlight Shores burned down, I learned the story of the Immortal Dynasty from a talented young lady named Miranda Keye who arrived in the Sim Bin one evening. Her family had been "lost" in the midst of her dynasty, and only she had escaped.

  Another young woman soon arrived--a redheaded, green-loving girl named Hazel. Her husband and infant son had also vanished, while Hazel herself hardly made it out alive.

   At last, just a few nights ago, a (rather handsome) young man known as "Ron Wyn" appeared in the Bin. He told the story of how he had been trapped in China for weeks, not knowing the fate of his family at home. Poor Ron soon became morose, discontented, and wandered out of the Sim Bin. We don't know where he went, but hopefully 'twas to a happy, peaceful life somewhere.



  Quite honestly? I was incredibly bored with my life at the time of Ron's arrival. There's only so many sims in the Sim Bin to change into toads, after all! And so, when I heard another sim would be sent out into the world to attempt an Immortal Dynasty, I knew 'twas my time to act.



  I think that's quite enough introduction, don't you? Now I feel quite close to you all, despite not really knowing any of your names or backstories! Care to go out for hot chocolate sometime? Oh, wait--dynasty. Right.



  Hopping onto my broom, I took a spin out into the town, looking for a bistro at which to acquire a job. Not being entirely used to--well, anywhere besides Starlight Shores, really--I somehow missed the bistro completely and ended up outside a rather sad, angular little house. Thoroughly confused at this point, I climbed up the front steps and knocked on the front door for directions.



  A woman, looking even sadder than the house in which she resided, invited me inside. The interior of the house was somewhat nicer than the exterior (blue! blue! blue!), but still rather severe, and I could sense the sorrow crammed into every corner. The same sense lingered near Agnes--or perhaps that was just all the black getting to me.



  The grim mood of the house was beginning to seriously dampen my aura, so I asked Agnes to visit my home, instead. Her car, despite being black and white, was decidedly luxurious. And a little more comfortable than a broom, perhaps.



  We stood outside of my house (well, there wasn't really a house to speak of, so just outside) and chatted for some time. Every word Agnes said was so weighed down with loss that I felt overcome with sorrow myself! At last, I could not take the loneliness etched in her face any longer.

  "Agnes, dear," I said with finality, "I do believe that you are simply too lonely and sad in that big, fancy house. I know I don't even have a house, but I insist that you come live with me--and we can be roommates!"



  Agnes agreed, of course, and decided to sell her car. The resulting funds allowed me to build this nice little house! I couldn't help but be a little reminiscent of Starlight Shores, but I like to think that Sunset Valley was an influence in the design.



Through the front doors is a little hallway with just a bar and a few stools.



  On either side of the bar is a bathroom, each one a little different.



  And here is the nice little sitting area, with nice blue furniture! I also purchased an Alchemy Station, so that I will be able to embrace the culture surrounding my magical abilities for the good of the dynasty. I quite like this area--it makes me think of my little beach bungalow in the Shores, but I digress.



  On the other side of the long room is a nice little kitchen (A.K.A. MY DOMAIN!) and a blue-themed dining room with a few branches I
enchanted to serve as candles.



  To the right of the house is my nice, cozy little room. I stuck to the wood-and-blue theme here, as it really does remind me of home and make me far more comfortable. My room opens up into my master bathroom, which will be used by no one else! I hope.



  Here is the "singles" bedroom, where the unmarried helpers of the dynasty will sleep. I would have liked a larger room for them, but Agnes was quite firm on this count. According to her, making dynasty helpers feel important is the first step towards having a non-Immortal steal a bit of Ambrosia--and poof, there goes the dynasty!



  And, naturally, the large art room. We added windows later for a nicer backdrop.



  I gave Agnes a makeover (slightly against her will) to keep her dim aura from depressing me. I think she looks far nicer now, and certainly more cheerful! Red really does suit her, as does that pretty short hairstyle and headband.



  Immediately, while I went to bed early, she raced to the sculpting station and began to practice with clay. Having read the previous attempts of my Watcher, I fear for my friend's sanity over the next few weeks!



Author's Note:
Oh, I do miss the Wyn's so much! Sadly, it appears that Ron is forever trapped in China with no way back to Jason and Emma. I plan to use his spouse later in this dynasty, too!

In other news, here's a picture of Emma from this file. She's not looking too good--so sorry, Emma!

It's the first-ever house I've built that isn't a complete box! I'm so proud  ;D.

This is my . . . 4th attempt, I believe, the previous 3 having failed due to computer errors! Sad, isn't it? Hopefully the Elysi's won't be cursed with another glitch!

I can never feel at peace unless I'm playing a dynasty--thus, I can't help but immediately begin again! Thanks for the good wishes--I will need them.

I couldn't resist going with the blonde, blue-eyed girl this time around  :). Thanks!

Chapter 1 - Kidnapping and/or "Encouraging Children in Artistic Pursuits"

 I began the next day with a smile on my face, optimism in that smile, hands outstretched to embrace life as it came--and tofu dogs in the microwave. Despite not being a vegetarian, I simply can't stand to think of those poor little . . . erm . . . whatever animals that go into hot dogs, dying! It's unsimstitutional, I tell you.



 Meanwhile, Agnes began a lovely self-portrait of me. I told her to take a nap, or perhaps an outing to Mick's, but she just rolled her eyes and muttered something about goody-two-shoes dynasty founders.



 I decided a trip to the beach was in order to repair my emotional damage from Agnes's snub, and met the most lovely gentleman! We connected immediately, but I soon had to run off to work! I learned later that he had randomly morphed into a fairy. Pooh.



 After completing the portrait, Agnes called an organization (something to do with a crumpled metal and sharks, I believe?) and adopted a nice little boy named Alexander. He's extremely bright, but kept asking me for money. I shall have to cure him of this regrettable habit through kind words and candy.



 Isn't he rather cute? I suppose I know why he goes around asking the neighbors for things--one look from those sweet purple eyes melts even the hardest heart!



 Agnes "encouraged" Alex to set himself up at a nearby easel, so that the future of portraits to come will be assured. I don't believe that he enjoys painting very much, so I will have to make other arrangements . . .



 Thus, I ended up at a very clean, modern house on the northern end of the city, chatting with this wild, bleach-blond young woman. We discovered a shared love of gardening and talked for hours!



 Soon I invited Zelda back to our house, and asked her to move in. The unsteady, party animal, irresponsible young woman jumped at the chance to turn over a new leaf, so to speak. She also picked up her niece, Kaylynn, after the child left school, and brought her back to our house.



 Zelda also decided to wash the dye out of her hair, and return to her natural color--black. I think she looks far lovelier with dark hair, and her aura is certainly much pinker and more vibrant!



 Zelda adopted an almost fairylike, carefree wardrobe that I heartily approve of. Finally, another free spirit in this house!



 As for Kaylynn . . . well, she's a little simple. Not dumb, of course--it's just that she was born missing a trait. Thus, she has limited interactions and actions, the poor little dear. At any rate, she aged up practically the moment she stepped through the door.



 The poor child's empty trait slot caused her to age up in this fashion. I mean--the hair, the un-matching sweatshirt and skirt, cross-eyed expression . . . how very unfortunate.



 Isn't she quite lovely? I admire her headband--and that button-up shirt is darling on her! Hopefully she's saving up for a Mid-Life Crisis, so that her mind will be able to operate at its full capacity soon.



 I'm not entirely sure that she's thrilled by her new sleepwear, but Alex certainly is. Oh, that boy is just too funny!



 Nowadays, I join Zelda in the garden upon waking up. I won't be seriously pursuing gardening until Zelda is gone, but we'll need a gardener when . . . but why think about that now?



 She often joins Alex at the pond across the street, although I think Alexander finds her apparent lack of serious commitment to fishing "disgusting and gross in every possible aspect." Alex is jut a bit too smart for his own good!



 Zelda has been a bit busy for fishing lately, as she happened to discover a certain, very powerful and wonderful elixir at the Elixir Consignment Store. I have already transferred all power over the family funds to her.



 She decided her work was far too important to head inside for use of the bathroom. The Altos are still calling us to complain about that one.



 We didn't exactly become millionaires overnight, but $600,000 is comfortable enough at this stage. I purchased Summer Hill Springs and the bistro (which I renamed to Serena's Bistro), and capped off my victory by napping in the rocking chair to the soothing lullaby of Agnes's chainsaw.

Zelda really does look amazingly good with her natural haircolor!

Wanted to let you know that you're totally allowed to use testingcheats to give Kaylynn her missing trait, as is stated in #2 of the rules here:


You also do not need to ask for permission to open the cheats panel (Press Ctrl-Shift-C) and use a cheat for the following circumstances:
1. Your Sim is stuck .
2. Your Sim loses a trait or has an empty trait slot.
3. Your Sim has a stuck moodlet that will not go away — such as the Hunted moodlet when no vampires are in the area.
4. Your Sim ages to an incorrect life stage.

Can't wait to see more!

I asked Rica about it on the challenge board, and she said that since EA designated Kaylynn to have a missing trait, I would need to fill her empty slot the "legal" way. And yes, I first got the idea to dye Zelda's hair when I was researching on the Sims Wikia and it said that she had dark roots, implying that she had dyed her hair. Doesn't she look so different with dark hair?

She looks much better than usual!  If I ever play Zelda, I will immediately be making her brunette. 

Every time I read a Sunset Valley dynasty, I kinda hope to see Jamie move into the house, but she never seems to.  I need to use her for a story one of these days.

Oh, sorry for the poor info on the testingcheats!  Glad you checked and I didn't ruin your dynasty!   :-X

Hmmm . . . a brunette Zelda . . . I like her black-haired look too much to change it, but I would love to see her with another previously unused hair color!

As for Jamie--I like her, but she doesn't really have a space in my dynasty. I mean, I don't really need a logic person at the early stage of the dynasty, but maybe if she's still living in a few generations (which is surprisingly likely, considering she always changes into a long-lived life state in my games) a logical, blonde doctor may be in order as a spouse!

No problem-o, I thought the same thing until I checked with Rica.

Your new founder is quite lovely and charming in every aspect! I quite adore her! Although Pam would point out that she needs stockings for her sleepwear. I see you're following much the same strategy as before, I can't wait to see who becomes the spouse!

Your new founder is quite lovely and charming in every aspect! I quite adore her! Although Pam would point out that she needs stockings for her sleepwear. I see you're following much the same strategy as before, I can't wait to see who becomes the spouse!

Thank you, I'm quite fond of her myself  ;). Excellent point . . . the question is: how did I forget them? Yes, the strategy really all worked out in my last attempt (everyone died off at precisely the right time, all museum thingamajigs were completed without too much difficulty, etc.) and I really just couldn't abandon my favorite townie sims! Just wait until you see who the spouse is, I made a spur-of-the-moment decision that I think might pay off!

Little Alex is adorable. You really lucked out with him. Possible future dynasty spouse, perhaps? It looks like you're off to a great start and have everything well in hand.

Well, it would be just a tad creepy to marry Serena off to him, and I already have plans for the next immortal . . . am I the only one shipping Alex and Kaylynn? Mwahahahahaha! (My apologies, I tend to become overcome with evil-overlord-hysteria when pairing up sims)

Chapter 2 - Dating A Married Man--Whoops!

"Kaylynn! I am going to kill you!"

"Zelda, is attempting to kill your niece really a kind action that will benefit the world?"

"Yeah, Aunt Zelda, is killing me really a kind action that will benefit--"

"Kaylynn Langerak!"



 I really will need to have a little chat with Zelda about how impressionable and fragile teenagers are--does she want Kaylynn to grow up with sad family memories? Ah, well, I suppose she did have an excuse for being a little snappish, considering that it was her adult birthday.



 Agnes also celebrated her birthday (did you know that Zelda and Agnes share a birthday? A good omen!) but she didn't even leave the art room. I believe she is now living on coffee, bread, and the random Invigorating Elixir.





 On a slightly happier note--did I tell you that I bought Summer Hill Springs? I built a nice little play area, including the Slip 'n' Slide and water balloon arena. I do hope that Alex will spend more time in the playground than fishing, as a happy childhood is very conducive to a long and happy life.



 There are also the coordinated bathrooms located on the opposite side of the park. I'm a little peeved that blue is considered a "male" color, so the builders painted the men's room blue! The stereotypes in this town are truly horrifying. I must file a complaint at City Hall the next time I'm in town . . .



 The other night, Kaylynn went off to Prom. I helped her pick out her dress and jewelry, and she looked just like a princess!



 Being a very popular young lady, she won Prom Queen! I also heard her giggling on the phone about a "Micheal," who I'm sure is a very nice young lad who will soon find himself being stalked by a fairy-like pink tornado. (I'm referring to Zelda checking out this Michael character to see if he's worthy of our Kaylie, if that wasn't very clear in the previous sentence.)



 Then again, Zelda may be a little too busy for Michael-stalking.

"You're way prettier than my wife."

"You're way too old for me, but I find your money very attractive."



 Alex aged up out by the pond--if he had told me about his birthday, I would have thrown him a party! Oh, the people of this house are so hard to deal with . . . "Don't be such a baby, Serena, no one has birthday parties anymore . . . I'll show them!



 Oh, isn't he cute? Since his birthday, he displays more interest in fishing than ever! I'll need to find something to tear him away from the pond long enough to create a life for him . . . teenage girl party, anyone?



 I believe his favorite color is white (Like Kaylynn's. Why are we cursed so?) but I convinced him to add a few hints of blue. Blue. It is everything.



 It's quite cute to see them working on homework together and comparing their dynasty work. Kaylynn is a bit contemptuous of fishing, while Alexander still remembers his days chained to the easel. They get along well.



 Alex has started working out after curfew--to impress Kaylynn? Possibly, maybe, probably, yes, I hope so, nooboo!

 What? Sorry? I lost my train of thought.



 Meanwhile, I was trying to do a bit of visiting--get to know people in town, y'know? I was planning to visit the Working Friends, but somehow ended up . . . lost. Again. Considering that getting lost once let me meet Agnes, I decided to just go with the flow.



 Not wanting to be rude, I threw a Friendship elixir at Morgana's husband, Thornton. After all, Morgana seemed approachable enough, while Thornton was a bit, er, scarier. And/or intimidating, take your pick. I'm certain that our thought bubbles at the time were completely coincidental.



 However, we rapidly discovered that we had a lot in common! Not only that, but Thornton is rather cute . . . if you can ignore the sideburns . . .



 Anywho, I invited him over to my place so we could continue the conversation without disturbing Mrs. Wolff, and the subject of change came up. Thornton mentioned that he felt a little confined and compressed by his current circumstances. His marriage was in a rut--he and Morgana hardly even Woohooed anymore! He was living in a beautiful house, with a steady and profitable career, but that just pressed down on his relentless ambition and gave him nothing more to search for.

 To me, it seemed that what Thornton really needed was some time away from his life. So, I invited him to move in for a while--just until he found a new passion. It's not like dynasty rules prevent him from leaving, right?



 He certainly cleans up nicely! He shaved the sideburns and--oooooh, look at those clear gray eyes . . .



 I also convinced him to abandon the . . . I don't want to say monstrosity--as that would probably damage the suit's self-esteem--but I can think of no kind words at the moment. Go with the flow, just go with the flow.



 I wished him delightful dreams before we retired to our bedrooms. I dreamed of unicorns and world peace; I do so hope Thornton's dreams were as joyful!



 The next morning, my innocent comment about taking a greeting card picture at the Science Facility suddenly turned into something . . . else. Not sure how or why, he just kind of leaned closer and gazed at me with the eyes.



 I'm not sure how I feel about flirting with a guy who's married. I mean, Thornton made a commitment to Morgana, and just because we have a bit of a connection doesn't mean--"Flowers! Oh, Thornton, I love them!"

Mr. Commitment Issues Thornton as a dynasty spouse? This ought to be interesting. He's going to hate being around all of the kids. :P

Sideburns is back in action! Make sure Hebe Smith doesn't hear about this. :-X

Well, not-Sideburns now. He's still handsome, but I felt those sideburns just completed his look. Nice move ditching that suit, though.

He doesn't hate kids, he just . . . erm . . . well, he'll start liking them eventually, I'm sure!

I know, even I have to get tired of Chris Steel at some point! No one's inherited the thin lips yet, but it's only a matter of time.

I'm still undecided on the sideburns. They may make a reappearance, but I'm not really a huge fan of the facial hair in Sims, so it's debatable.

He sure does clean up nicely.  Might want to beware the wrath of Morgana, though!

He is very nice-looking now, I never noticed his pretty eyes before. He has been used before, by ratchie in her Smith Immortal Dynasty. I agree that blue is not masculine, I am mad at the builders too!
