The Greek Gods [31/07 Reawakening]

The Greek Gods : An Immortal Dynasty

Hello there lovely simmers!

I'm back with the Greek Gods Immortal Dynasty Version 3.0! I never give up, do I! I've had two previous tries, none that sadly and thankfully, went far. You can read them here and here. Based on previous experiences, I've altered and planned my story line this time around. (Sigh, I really wish I could do the Surrounded by Children LTW though  :'( )

This dynasty builds upon the original legends of Greek mythology as well as making the story as realistic as possible- actually when there were clashes between realism and mythology, I always chose to be realistic! Obviously, its not anywhere near 50% accurate in terms of greek mythology - after all I cannot and don't want to! You'll see none of the weird family relationships, murder or anything of that sort, rest assured!

For those who'd love to jump straight into the current generation, I've entered some spoilers below. They are actually a bare skeleton of the original personalities in Greek mythology.

Generation One : Rhea
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Rhea is the mother goddess: gentle, kindly and revered by all.

Rhea's life starts off as the wife of VJ Alvi (Cronos), a lackluster youngster who despises his father(Iqbal=Ouranos) but comes to deeply love the woman he marries. Together, they steal up through the ranks from homeless wanderers to four star celebrities. To add to an even more eventful life, they are burdened by the knowledge that they are among the few untouched by the Curse, a malady that has rendered whole towns barren. Imperatively thrown into saving the world, what will their paths take them?

Generation Two : Zeus
An ambitious youth on bad terms with his father, Zeus dreams, and dreams big. Will he have the perfect family life he dreams of?

Hestia
Gifted with wisdom, talented in the arts, Hestia yearns to carve a niche for herself. But can she shine out with such an overbearing sister?

Hera
Highly ambitious, somewhat paranoid and quick to judge, there's not much that escapes this young lady's eyes. She loves her husband but isn't beyond manipulating him!

Generation Three : Aphrodite
Beautiful and hopelessly romantic, Aphrodite's greatest dream is finding her one true love. Unfortunately, she seems to have a hard time finding-and keeping- the One.

Generation One

Confidential Diary Entries from The Community Center for Teenagers with Critical Criminal Tendencies

Spring | SimYear 1

Chapter One : The Man with the Goblet



Howdy pardner! Know me? Yeah?

No? I'm VJ, THE VJ, the VJ Alvi.

Friend of Altos, friend of Lisa of the Bunch, friend of my teeny brother Miraj.

Enemy of everyone else, including my father.

And yeah, friend of the chick who shares the homeless shelter with us.

Oh! News to you?

Yes, the great Alvis', long being struggling on the brink of poverty, finally fell head first into bankruptcy.

Better start telling from the beginning before you start listening to anything *THEY* tell about me.

I am pretty new to Sunset Valley. Iqbal moved here when Mum left him. Yes, Iqbal is my Dad and no, I don't call him Dad anymore.

I used to love Mum. She had the prettiest face and the softest voice. I used to be pretty good at my studies those days.

She and Iqbal were always having these fights. She used to say it was because Iqbal was so lazy and didn’t care to earn enough to give us a good life.

Then one day, she wasn’t there when I returned home from school. A few hours later our aunt rushed in and took us to her place. It took a few days for Iqbal to show up. He clearly seemed to have been drunk. He muttered something about Mummy filing for a divorce.



I heard my aunts whispering that Mummy had run away with a rich man and they called her many bad words. Miraj was just a baby and didn't understand. I understood and ruined their best clothes.

It was not Mummy’s fault. Iqbal had driven her away. There was never enough money.
I just wished she had taken us with her.

So that’s how we landed here in Sunset Valley. I hated leaving my friends behind, but certainly not my snooty aunts. Iqbal did not even care to listen to us. So we moved over here.
Sunset Valley was-and still is so dull. We lived in the cheapest part in town, not much of an improvement from the old apartment we had lived in before. Then things went from bad to worse.

Iqbal was fired. It was not his fault. The boss had not been amused by the illustrations I had made on some official documents. For a moment I felt sorry for Iqbal. He certainly was not lazy now and spent most of the month working overtime. But it was his fault after all. If he had been so hardworking before, Mummy would have never left.

Whatever pity I had felt, it soon vaporized over the following days.
 
Iqbal had borrowed heavily to win the lawsuits to get sole custody over us. Now with no job, he had no way to pay them. The result? We were declared bankrupt and had to move to the ‘Shelter’.

My hate for Iqbal tripled. Not only had he separated us from our mother, he had made us believe that she hadn’t wanted us. Now we were reduced to nothing but living in a measely place.



“Come on VJ, SMILE.” Miraj said cheerfully. “It’ll be so posh! We’ll be next-door neighbours to the Altos and the Landgraabs!”

I looked at his bright face and smiled wanly. I love my little brother to bits. He is all I care for in the world.

"Whatever!" I shrugged. "Lets head off!"

As if we had any another option!

Landgraabs or Altos or what-nots, the homeless shelter looked pretty slimy.

It certainly didn't look welcoming. The walls and floors were just rough slates of wood hewed together.



I headed in hesitantly. It was better than I expected.

There was an easel. Some starving artist must have died here. Ghostly glory!

And a fridge, stove and a counter.

And some weird apparatus.

"That must be the rack." I said loudly for Iqbal to hear. "They must be torturing bankrupt blokes over there.



He glared at me and opened his mouth, and I bristled up in defense.

"Who the hell are you?" A shrill voice broke out. "And what the hell are you doing in my house?"

The new adversary in question was quite a pretty decent looking girl. She looked rather upset.

"Your home?" I retorted. "As far as I know this is a homeless shelter."

She looked about to burst into tears.

"Don't tell me I've got to share this place with three men!" She whimpered.

"Miraj is just a kid, but I'm sure he'll feel honoured." I snapped back.

"There's just one open dormitory." She said in shock, as if she hadn't heard me.

"Open or closed, what the hell are you doing here?"

Iqbal glared at me.

"I'm really sorry for the inconvenience." He butted in. "I'm Iqbal Alvi and these are my sons. We'll be here for some time, I'm afraid. But I assure you there'll be no trouble from us. And you are?"

"Rhea Olympia." she groaned. "I am new here and they hired me to look after this place but I had no idea that I would be sharing the place with three men."



"Yay! We have a maid." I said gleefully. 

She surprised me by smiling sweetly.

"Sweet dreams honey." she said in a bored voice and turned to dad. "Iqbal, and I hope you don't mind me calling you that, I work at the bistro and you don't need to worry about your meals. The boys will have to help out with the cleaning and other chores and I hope you will pool in for the groceries."

"No problem." Dad smiled. "Don't mind VJ here, he's quite a handful. "I happen to be quite good at fishing so you need not worry much about getting good food."

Pah! He certainly liked fishing! He was always going away on a fishing expedition but didn't even have the time to take Mummy to the movies. No wonder she left him.

"Until the creditors come and torture him on the rack." I gestured grimly.

The girl looked puzzled for a moment and then burst out laughing.

"Oh that's a pedestal." She smiled. "An artist and sculpter lived here when I came. They landed a fancy deal in Bridgeport and didn't want their old stuff with them.

"Huh? Pedestal?" So much for my hopes!

"Yes, He would take some blocks and make sculptors on it. You should try it sometime, there are plenty of leftover blocks outside. I've always wanted to but never had any artistic flair."

"I think better not." Dad shook his head. "VJ has too much flair for trouble-making."

He truly was dumb, Dad was. Whatever he told me not to do, I loved doing.



I made my very first sculptor staying up that night. I have no idea how. I just closed my eyes and tried to imagine what life Mummy must have had wanted for her to leave.

I don't think it matched the sculptor of a barely dressed man, holding what Rhea called a goblet.

Rhea liked it. She practically called me a genius.

She's pretty that girl, such a nice smile. Much prettier than Lisa of the Bunch.

I wish I was older...

Summer | SimYear 1

Chapter Two : When there's a Will, there's a Sculptor

Hey pardner,

So writing this darned diary entry again ain't I?

Well, I've been in the hottest of hot waters.

I failed school. Continuously.

No, I wasn't doing drugs. I wasn't flaming around.

I was just sculpting.

And ain't I going to do any community service over that.

I'm doing fine, just fine. And no, I've not even got into trouble with Dad. I just don't have nuff time. Langston over the consignment store doesn't like me much though.

The chick is pretty ok too, I've tried my best to be nice and polite around her.

Though she certainly wasn't too happy over everything, specially all our snoring.



By the way, just update the homeless shelter people that we need some chairs and a table. Rhea has lunch on the toilet and its going to cause some accidents one day!



That girl is pretty handy around the house. Despite all her threats, she (and Miraj) always clean up after us.



Better still, she's a pretty decent cook. Even Dad couldn't find anything to complain about.



She's doing pretty good at the bistro too. She's managed to charm up her boss, that pasty Hatch.



Dad is the same old nuisance as before. He forgot to pay the bills though I'd given him more than enough money. The repoman came and took away one of my sculptors! The one of the goblet man. Thankfully it was the second one I made!



Oops I've called old Iqbal 'Dad' for once. Ain't have time to blot it out, so just replace it will ya. He's not that so bad, is old Dad.



After his initial enthusiasm, Miraj had a hard time settling in. He hated the droughts and cold floor. And having Rhea around made him remember Mummy.



"VJ," Miraj whimpered one day. "I called Mummy and asked if I could visit her. She said she was too busy."

I hugged him. "Don't worry darling. I'll earn some good bucks and Mummy will be back soon."

"I'll help you VJ." he said suddenly, his eyes full of tears.

I was surprised when he brought home some paints and started painting the next day.



We sculpt and paint day and night. Though neither of us talk about it, we know all of this is to get Mummy back.



I started selling at the consignment store. It gives much more higher returns. The clerk, Jamal Langston doesn't like me at first. Thought he was all high and mighty and even dared to sent that complaint to you guys.



I considered pranking him but then that wouldn't sell my goods will it! So decided to make love instead of war (No that's not literal - my heart's quite somewhere else!) He's now all friendly with me and you know, I can be quite sweet when I want to!



You see, I ain't going to do no reform work over missing school.

I've made a pretty fair buck, feeding the whole homeless shelter and saving you a good chunk of money.

One day, mark my words, I'll buy this homeless shelter over from you pigs and make a house that'll make those snooty Landgraabs and Altos writhe in shame...!

Thank you so much  :)!

Hope you love the rest too!

Choosing VJ was all random. The Alvis used to live next to Leighton who was my initial choice in my first try. When I was in my second try, I just bumped into them and was like hey, why not give the poor Alvis' a chance   ;)!  And they've not disapointed me so far!

Yes, ve1ocity and the Greek Gods are back! I've never been a huge fan of any of the Alvis, but reading about them in your dynasties makes me like them a little more. And I'm glad VJ is the bid for spouse this time, not Iqbal--I thought that was a little gross, considering how much older he is.

Hope you end up loving the Alvis this time around ;) !

I was actually more worried whether it was gross to put VJ as the spouse as he is just a teen when the game starts.

But the fact that I couldn't write much chemistry into the Rhea-Iqbal story and the fact Iqbal dies when the kids are small, made me choose VJ. Plus VJ, deserves it as he does most of the work!

Anyway, Iqbal has some romance of his own!

Chapter Three : A Season for Every Man
« Reply #14 on: April 27, 2013, 01:37:53 PM »
Iqbal's Musings

Fall| SimYear 1

Chapter Three : A Season for Every Man

My season is Autumn.



I've always believed that every man has his own season. I've hoped, wished and prayed for my season. Then when I had finally given up on waiting, it came.

My sons, whom I had spent many a sleepless night worrying over, are growing into fine yound men. They are far from perfect, but I know that when I'm dead and gone, they will be able to stand on their own feet.

Miraj is now a teen and a ache painter.



Unlike his brother, he actually makes an effort at schoolwork.



The two brothers spend most of their time for the arts. I don't discourage them now. They have already proved that they are on the right track in life. Don't ask me why VJ always sculpts that man with the cup, he has some weird obsessions!



VJ aged up to an adult.





Not much of a difference in looks, except for the fact that, thankfully, he's more averse at wearing knickers!

But otherwise? The chap may be bottom of his class but he's already self employed and high in the sculptor career!

Personality-wise, he's much more mature, but he still throws tantrums occasionally. Like in the case of our new housemate.

We have a new housemate and she's a celebrity.



It all started when Rhea got a call that there was a new addition for the homeless shelter. And it was none other than Zelda Mae, an upcoming member at the theater!

To be honest, none of us were too keen. According to her, she was moving in to experiment the life of a starving artist. But I suspect something murkier, though it sure is taking sometime to figure out!   



Now for the best part of it all.

I met the love of my life.

My first wife had been very ladylike, and that was the very reason I was attracted to the polar opposite.

I saw her from afar, and there was something about her brisk walk and sternly beautiful face that caught my eyes.



She said her name was Erin, that she worked in the military and nothing much more.

She was very reserved and it took me many days to convince her to go out on a date. She lived in the same part of town as we lived before, but her house was very comfortable and showed fine taste.



As the days passed, I started to realize what it meant to be in a relationship built on mutual trust and respect. Neither of us were young but we still had plenty to talk over.

Things are moving slowly, but surely now. Yesterday, as we watched the stars, I asked her about the future.



"You are going to be a father."

Life is beautiful.

Chapter Four : A Man, not a Boy

Confidential Diary Entries from The Community Center for Teenagers with Critical Criminal Tendencies

Winter | SimYear 1

Chapter Four : A Man, not a Boy

Hey pardner,

Just to let ye know this is the last diary entry I'm writing for you.

Why?

# 1 I'm legally an adult
# 2 I brought over the homeless shelter
# 3 I made my own house
# 4 You'll be too busy tracking Dad's spawn to worry about me

Boring things first.



Erin, Dad's girlfriend is going to have a baby. Being the independent military woman she is, she doesn't want to get married but is expecting the fullest support from Dad. Surprisngly, Dad seems quite ok with the whole arrangement. A child out of wedlock, phew I never thought good old boy had that in him!

Anyway they are very romantic and go on long dates skiing on the frozen lake. I wonder what would happen if the ice breaks... <fiendishly delighted>



I'd love to buy the park, you know.

I brought over the land with the homeless shelter, so technically we aren't homeless anymore! Weird huh!

And I started building my house. Mind, its just a rough place for us to stay till I get enough money to start building in earnest. My plans are much much more larger!



I've never been one for festivals, but I must confess the holiday lights make a real pretty sight!

I brought a new table and some chairs. You lazy people, you never cared to buy us some!



"This place is simply magnificent." I overheard Rhea telling Miraj. "Who would have thought that such a rude little boy would turn out to be such a sensitive sculptor?"

Well, she was wrong there. I wasn't a great sculptor because I was sensitive, it was just there in me. I just happened to notice people better than others, if you put it as that.

I was sensitive on just one thing. I was painfully shy around Rhea.

Finally I summoned up the courage to speak to her while she did the dishes. I had a valid reason, of course.



"I'm so exhausted." I sighed. "The coffee has worn off."

"You shouldn't work so hard, child." she chided. "You should take more care of yourself. Just look at your spikes! They need a cut!"

Sigh, long sigh!

She still considers me a child! How could she?

Well, perhaps some changes are needed...





Impressive huh! Even Langston at the consignment store said his heart was all aflutter!

To wind off, Rhea is doing pretty good in her job and got another raise.



And I've mastered sculpting and finally know how to make unmelting ice sculptors.

There's something I've dreamed of doing since a kid.



Yes, I want to sculpt Rhea in ice. Her likeness will be preserved forever, and forever.

Now off to impress her and prove I'm not a boy, but a man now.



See ya pardner. I'll miss ya'll, ya know

I've seen Iqbal and Erin get together a few times via story progression. They are an interesting couple, that much is certain.

So VJ is the intended dynasty spouse this time? Awesome. He has such an exotic handsomeness (even if he has lousy traits) and makes beautiful kids.

Best of luck this time around!

That make me embarrassed... well, because I'm still learning XD
But, I am happy to hear that from you. Thank you :)

I found your last attempt in order to understand more about this attempt. But, only the second try.
I wonder where is the first one? I'm afraid that I'm missing something here :)

I love how you write about VJ perspective that is really fit him. Iqbal Avi too is really somethin'. I hope that he will be happy with Erin.

This is my 100th post in the forum and why not spend it replying to some lovely comments!

Also people, just to repeat my request:


Who are the Greek gods you'd love to see most? What are your favourite Greeky legends?

Thank you for the well wishes! I'm really excited this time around!

Yes, I've seen Iqbal and Erin getting together too. This time though it was planned.

Yes, VJ is the intended spouse. I couldn't imagine how stunning he could be till after the makeover! Specially love his eyes! His traits were a headache but thankfully as he was mostly away all day sculpting, I didn't have to deal much with them!

Its great to have you reading :)! Don't forget to tell me who your favourite Greek gods are :)!

I've linked to both my last two attempts in the first post :). There's a major difference here though and I feel my writing is improving as a whole.

Corrected the image problem:).

Chapter Five : Dark Secrets

Pssst pardner,

Yes, I said I wouldn't let you bother me again, but I have the JUICIEST, MEATIEST news!

And anyway, I know you're pretty bored trying to dig up on Nicky Alto and finding nothing, so I'm sure you'll love to hear from me.

You remember, I presume, that we have a celebrity in our household?

Zelda Mae.



I never could figure out what she was doing, staying with us. True, she had been fired from the theater and not earning much but she had well-off family members on the other side of town. No reason to come to a homeless shelter!

Seems like she had plenty of reasons after all!

I didn't speak with her much, but she and Rhea became pretty pally.



I didn't think much when Rhea asked me to keep the key under the doorstep because Zelda had dropped into the bistro and told her she would be out late, partying. I wasn't sleepy and decided to stay up sculpting. It would be nice to greet the darn woman back by congratulating her on her luck of a successful party crash!

I waited till midnight. Then I gave up. I was sleepy and would very well save my taunts for the morrow.



Then I saw Zelda. Across the street in the park. Weirder still, she was not in her party clothes.

And she was talking to? I inched in closer.

OH MY SWEEET LLAMA GOODD!!!



See the guy?

I ain't naming no names! I don't want to pay dues on my hard-earned and honest (yes, yes I admit it, albeit shamefully) sculpting.



"It is positive." The voice carried well in the thin air. "And no, I'm not going to do what you tell! I know you love kids"

The answer was hard to hear but it seemed to be something between reluctant agreement and frustration.

That was all. I just slunk in to the shadows. Remember, I'm a honest man, however much I hate to admit it.



Dustin Langerak, Zelda's brother-in-law had some answering to do. I ain't afraid of him!

"She moved here because we wanted her to break it all off. It was harming her career and our family. He loves his wife and won't leave her-it would have been too dangerous anyway..."

They have been carrying on for quite some time, meeting in secret..



But perhaps somethings can't be kept secrets forever?



I know you are bored, pardner.

And I happen to have grown quite fond of you...

I do love Zeus, Athena and Artemis. Well, Diana story will be related with a Greek God eventually.
I'm already thinking that before the story begin. Diana is the other name of Artemis right? :3

There are still a lot more, but my head is busted right now. Maybe later... But, I do know the Greek Gods on your list! ;D

Ah, thank you. It's seem that I failed to see the others! I'll report here again after checking those stories :3

Good job!

Now for the actual comment:

Gosh! So Zelda Mae and... Uh, Geoffrey? That was unexpected.

Oooh, how do I love to see Dustin Langerak. He is too really something ;)
But, I never played him anyway. Maybe later.

Your writing style as Alvi is really good. I am smiling when I read them!
Keep up the good work and be careful, okay! :D

Yes, Diana is Artemis's Roman counterpart. I'm still debating over whether Artemis or Apollo will be my immortal, but the that's for the game to decide! I wish I could make both of them immortal, they are such integral characters!

Maybe yes, maybe not... Keep guessing ;) !

From the outfit I would say he works in the business career. Is it Nick Alto?

How could I have missed this part? ;) Dustin makes me feel quite cheesy!

Thank you, thank you for the compliment! I badly want to improve my writing!
