Previously, on Samura's Dojo Dynasty . . .

Rhoxi eats her first ambrosia, becoming the eighth immortal and completing the challenge.



Her wedding day also serves as a reunion for the prolific Dojo clan.



Samura uses her witchy powers to resurrect a couple of dynasty spouses and reunite them with their loves.

Gage is happily reunited with his wife Marivell, while Darcy is reunited with his wife Doreen.



Samura's powers, however, are not great enough to release Grim's hold over beloved dynasty spouse Carmen.



Grim avows to release Carmen only for true love--which, since Gwenyth betrayed Carmen during their marraige--is something Grim is convinced Gwenyth is lacking.



In order to prove her devotion and regain her lover, Gwenyth agrees to submit to Grim's test: founding her own immortal dynasty.



With only moments left to live, Samura teleports Gwenyth away to begin her new life as a dynasty founder.



Confident that it is her time, Samura willingly takes Grim's hand.



Samura's Dojo Dynasty comes to an end, but Gwenyth's Dojo Dynasty is only just beginning.

Well, that's the whole point. Let's get those love birds reunited!

Yay, the Dojos are back! Out of curiosity, why are you doing another Immortal Dynasty instead of, say, a Life States? Are you going for a better museum score or some such thing?

I just had too much fun with the immortal dynasty challenge and wasn't ready to say goodbye. Plus, I wanted to be able to pick traits and skills to keep a theme going and see the new University content. And no, not really going for a high museum score this time around either.

YAY! The Dojo's are back! ;D And with more rainbow-y-ness then ever!

Let's hope so! More Dojos and more colors sounds like fun to me.

Yeah more Dojo's! I'm also surprised it's another immortal dynasty, but hey way to go for tackling Bridgeport. I'm sure you've got it all planned out.

Bridgeport is my favorite town to play, so I'm hoping it holds up well and doesn't bug out. Still working on the planning, actually! There's a lot of new skills and careers I want to try this time around.


A Rough Landing

Samura's spell transforms Gwenyth and teleports her to a whole new town.



The landing is a little rough. After all, it's not every day a sim gets shunted through the CAS bin for a fresh start!



Gwenyth picks herself up, feeling a little, well, a lot less skillful, but otherwise much the same as usual.



Gwenyth: "Bridgeport, huh? Well, I'll give you credit for that, mom," she mutters under her breath. "At least you sent me some place cool."



Then the memory of it hits her, suddenly.

Her mother . . .



Oh, right. She doesn't have a mother anymore. The confusion is almost enough to knock her off her feet again.

Gwenyth: "Why? Why would she . . . "

Gwenyth?

Gwenyth: "And what are these strange markings all over my arm?"



Then another memory, a final embrace from her mother.

"With this final embrace--I impart to you, a portion of my witchitude."



A portion of my witch powers, remember?

Gwenyth struggles to clear the fog from her mind. Is she hearing things? Maybe she's just tired.



Gwenyth? Gwenyth, can you hear me?

Gwenyth: "Well, at least I'm a witch now, even if part of my sanity is going."



She can almost feel the audible sigh.

Yes, my witchitude. It's like I was just saying. Can you hear me?

Wait a minute.

Gwenyth: "Mom? Is that . . . you?"



Samura: Yes, dear.

Gwenyth: "I don't understand. We're immortals. At least, I was. And so were you! Why would you just let yourself die like that?"



Samura: You know the rules just as well as I do, daughter. There can only be one founder. I figured, if I couldn't come with you in body well, . . . You didn't think I'd let my only daughter take on a challenge like this all alone, did you?

Gwenyth: "You really mean that, mom!? You're going to be here with me the whole way?"



Samura: Of course! Now you know you'd best go ahead and get started. There's so much to get done in the early days.

Gwenyth: "This is great! I figure, I'm in Bridgeport, party central! I should do something awesome--like mixology, or be a movie star, or maybe try out that cool new street art!"



Samura: Whatever is this nonsense! You're a dynasty founder, Gwenyth, we can't have you squandering these important days with something fun and frivolous. You'll do gardening. After all, you've dropped your Computer Whiz trait for Green Thumb.

Gwenyth: "Gardening?! How lame is that!"

Samura: Well, it's what you're going to do!

Then it hit her. Her mom. Backseat dynasty controller. All the motherly advise she'd already had way too much of after seven generations.

Gwenyth: "Great. You're going to be here with me the whole way, aren't you?"



She could hear the smugness. Literally, hear it.

Samura: Well, of course, dear. That's what mothers are for.

Now that I think about it, it's going to be hard to let go of the Immortal Dynasty challenge . . . good thing I've still got a-ways to go!

I like how Samura's taking the spiritual adviser role in this story, which is kind of funny, because my biggest pet peeve in Immortal Dynasty stories is when the Watcher/Player becomes their own character as the "Voice in the Sky" and continuously talks to the characters in the story, especially when they mostly just bicker or crack wise. However, in this, Samura makes complete sense, because there's a legitimate reason for why she's there, and she seems more like an overbearing but well-meaning and wise grandmother than anything else, and she's doing it out of love and really wants Gwenyth to succeed, which is really deep. Just promise me you'll round out the other characters just as much? Please? With sprinkles on top?

Thanks!

I'd almost forgotten how pretty Gwenyth is! I feel sorry for her, to be supermaxing gardening--it's not exactly my favorite skill, either! Good luck with a dynasty in Bridgeport! Now that I think about it, it's going to be hard to let go of the Immortal Dynasty challenge . . . good thing I've still got a-ways to go!

I actually enjoy the gardening skill in the Sims, but yeah, it's not as exciting a skill as Gwenyth would like. I wanted to have her do Inventing again, but apparently that supermax is bugged in Bridgeport!

Yay!  So glad to see them back.  So if my memory serves, Carmen flipped on Gwenyth for cheating for no reason, right?  Or did she actually betray him and I've just forgotten?

Well, it was kinda my bad. I had her ask another girl to spend the night. It was technically under the romantic social branch, but for some reason I thought it was like Ask Sign or Ask if Single, where it doesn't seem to actually count as a romantic social. I was wrong. It was weird though, because Shawnya flirted all the time and never "betrayed" Percival; maybe because it was autonomous?

Gwyneth looks so cool! I like her new witch look. I love how the screenshots match up her facial expressions with what she's thinking. Hahah so hilarious, great start I love it.

Thanks! I actually did that in a separate save file and gave her the dramatic and insane traits to make her pass out and talk to herself. It turned out surprisingly well, I think.

I'm a big fan of those markings on her. I love how Samura's sticking around to "help" Gwenyth. Very funny, and a fabulous start to your Dynasty!  ;D

Thanks! And I love the markings, too. Gwenyth totally seems like the sort that would have a tatoo, and now she can!

Gwenyth does not look amused with her mother, but at least her outfit looks cool. :D

I have no idea why she made that frown, but it's hilarious! Sometimes sims feed you just the right expression.

I like how Samura's taking the spiritual adviser role in this story, which is kind of funny, because my biggest pet peeve in Immortal Dynasty stories is when the Watcher/Player becomes their own character as the "Voice in the Sky" and continuously talks to the characters in the story, especially when they mostly just bicker or crack wise.

Just promise me you'll round out the other characters just as much? Please? With sprinkles on top?

I actually enjoy the "voice in the sky" format; it works really well for some more comedic storytelling styles. If it's any relief, though, that's not what I have in mind for this story. Only Gwenyth will be able to hear Samura. There's something about that mother-daughter bond that made the idea appealing to me, exploring both the sentimental side of the mother who would give her own life to watch after her daughter, but also the comedy of having to live yet another immortal life span together. I actually want to do more with the characters this time, not less. I feel like I'm starting to get my "story-telling legs" back, plus I've already got several characters with extensive back stories to work with.


New Beginnings

After so many years as an elder, Gwenyth couldn't deny that it felt fabulous to be young again.



Plus, the view from her new lot was spectacular.

It was so different from the sleepy atmosphere of Moonlight Falls where she'd lived for the last seven generations. So vast, and gritty, and . . .

Gwenyth: "It's so lonely. The city could just swallow me up and no one would ever notice."



Samura: Then you'd best find some friends to help you; I know I did.

Gwenyth: "I'm glad you did, or else I would never have had Carmen."

Samura: We'll get him back, daughter.

So Gwenyth hopped on her broom to head into the heart of the city.



She knew just who she was looking for, too. After all, that shiny red car in the driveway made him a dead ringer for a dynasty helper.

Gwenyth: "The poor soul, he has no idea what he's about to get himself into."

Samura: Just tell him to keep a look out for meteors. I've still never forgiven myself for poor Annalove's death.



Gwenyth: "Hello, Romeo Rake. I'm Gwenyth. Gwenyth Dojo. Look, I know you've got this fabulously luxurious apartment, but what would you say to a far more exciting prospect?"

Romeo: "I always enjoy a good adventure. I'm going to be a secret agent, you know. What did you have in mind?"



Gwenyth: "Well, I can tell you this: if you join this household . . . you can never, ever leave! Mwuahahaha!"

Romeo: *gasp!*



Gwenyth: "So, what do you think. Are you in?"

Romeo: "I'm in!"



Gwenyth: "Awesome. Now let's sell that sports car and build a house ASAP. It's already raining; the puddles will make house building difficult if we don't do this now."

Romeo: "Whaaat? Aw, my car? Not my car!"



Romeo: "Bessieeeee!!"

Can I go a little off-topic and say that this made me really happy? I never thought anyone would find the Dojos through my story, I thought for sure everyone would know Everette already if they read mine. I'm going to run over and link the Dojo Dynasty to his intro.

Okay, back on topic. Romeo is a brilliant choice! I love the new house, I agree it has a great modern-Dojo look. Good luck, Gwenyth! Go forth and make rainboos!

The house looks great, sorry to hear you had so much trouble building it. Glad it worked out. Hope I don't have the same issue in my Life States dynasty.

Romeo is a nice choice, I remember playing a file with him when Late Night came out. At least Gwenyth was honest with Romeo, a lot more honest than most dynasty founders have been. And what a great line, LOL!

Is Romeo going to have to give up his dreams of secret agent glory, I wonder?

Thanks! The fence thing is just a half-wall that comes with one of the Zen store sets, if that's what you mean? And nonsense, Romeo is incredible! That man can juggle like nobody's business. Seriously, you'll see.

And we're off! The house looks so cool :) I found the Dojos because of Everette on the Bachelorette thread (phew! long chain), spent all last night reading, and now I have a new one to read! Yay :D

Aw, thanks! All in one night, that's quite a compliment!

Can I go a little off-topic and say that this made me really happy? I never thought anyone would find the Dojos through my story, I thought for sure everyone would know Everette already if they read mine. I'm going to run over and link the Dojo Dynasty to his intro.

Okay, back on topic. Romeo is a brilliant choice! I love the new house, I agree it has a great modern-Dojo look. Good luck, Gwenyth! Go forth and make rainboos!

Oh Rosa, you're too modest! "Go forth and make rainboos": I love it! That is so the Dojo motto!

The house looks great, sorry to hear you had so much trouble building it. Glad it worked out. Hope I don't have the same issue in my Life States dynasty.

Romeo is a nice choice, I remember playing a file with him when Late Night came out. At least Gwenyth was honest with Romeo, a lot more honest than most dynasty founders have been. And what a great line, LOL!

Actually this isn't the part I had trouble with since I play a little further ahead than I write. I tried to do some expanding a little later, which is what caused the problems. I think any expansions will have to stay single story, but ah well! And hey, I didn't know you started a Life States dynasty. Two dynasties at once, how ambitious!

The house look fantastic! Great to see another dynasty from you. :)

Thanks, Louise! You're always so sweet.

The tattoos suit Gwenyth so perfectly. I love the idea of the mother-daughter bond meaning Samura shall be here for Gwenyth's dynasty too. The house looks fantastic.  ;D

I know, I love her with tattoos! So awesome. I'm glad you like it; the mother-daughter thing has a sort of special significance for me since my own mother isn't around anymore either. 


Other-Worldly Encounters

Gwenyth was quite pleased with her little house. It was quite a bit more modern, but that suited her personality much better.

Samura: You know, this isn't exactly a traditional dojo.

Gwenyth: "Well, I'm not exactly a traditional Dojo. Besides, what's wrong with it?"



Samura: For starters, its got a hole in the ceiling.

Gwenyth: "It's not a hole, mom. It's an atrium. A little way to bring the outdoors indoors, yeah? Now, shh! I'm trying to learn gardening."



Gwenyth felt a little guilty about selling Romeo's car, so she decided to give in to his requests and spent some of the funds on a pool. He forgave her instantly.

Romeo: "Whoo! Yippie!" *splash*



Then she told him she was going to need twenty-five ice sculptures, and Romeo went back to grumbling.

He requested five days off of work to focus on sculpting, but insisted he'd be a super spy someday.



While Romeo sculpted, Gwenyth checked the consignment store each day hoping to find a camera. (If only she'd waited just a little longer, she would've had one in her inventory! But alas, I started before University came out!)



She also got an opportunity to deliver produce to one of the local celebs.



Then one night, she found just who she was looking for.



His name was Sinjon, and though he'd died a vampire's death, he wasn't a vampire. He was, however, a very pale blue sim. Rumor had it, in fact, that all of the ghosts in Bridgeport were blue.

Gwenyth: "Do I really have to go through with this?"

Samura: You're going to need an heir, dear, and unfortunately immaculate conception isn't exactly an option.

So she tried to explain it all as best she could.

Gwenyth: "So you see, I can never promise to be anything more to you. I can barely even promise to be a real girlfriend."



Sinjon just cradled her face in his hands and looked deep into her eyes.

Sinjon: "I understand. Really, I do. And your terms are acceptable, Gwenyth Dojo. I'll give you your children in exchange for a second life, just as soon as you learn that spell."



But while Gwenyth was having her own other-worldly encounter, poor Romeo was having one of his own!

Romeo: "Oh god, is that--?"



Romeo: "Nooooooooo!"



Gwenyth: "I'm sorry Romeo, really, I am. But at least I got you that pool, right? I'm not a horrible dynasty founder, right?"

Samura: I have to say, death by meteor is probably preferable to this.

Gwenyth: "Gee, thanks, mom."

Poor Romeo, I bet that will put a dent in his masculinity.

What's the story with Sinjon, he's a vampire ghost but not a vampire? Um, I'm confused. Oh never mind just looked him up on the wiki.

And yes call me crazy, I did start a life states dynasty with a very special golden founder. Needed something to change up my playing time, just means both will take longer to finish since I will be splitting time.
