Finally all caught up and I...I just....

Really, I'm an emotional wreck right now. Complete and total wreck. First you bring Noten back for a surprise appearance that made me gasp and my eyes totally watered up. Then you killed off Thomas (more tears), then this whole growth with Mary is just absolutely phenomonal! And Emrin...And Atrox....I was no good by the time they showed up. I was flailing and squealing and breathing heavily as I speed read the rest of the chapter (Edward's appearance was awesome. So casual. I love him to death). I wish we could have seen Glitch though! Hopefully he'll show up next chapter, yeah?

Your writing makes me seriously doubt my own, Liv, you know that? Like...it's ridiculous how you manage to write these characters in such an endearing way that we all get so attached and our emotions flair up Noten's ghostly cameo (or not ghost? Resurrected perhaps maybe? I hope? PLEASE?). You're absolutely incredible and I hope to high heaven that your game stops freaking out so you can continue to play this story! I would be devastated if it ended. And, random side note, I saw that purple plumbob over the queen. Where's the genie you had ensorceling her? =p The problems you had with Edward and Thomas disappearing happened to me in my old Morae legacy too, btw. So I know how it feels.

Glitch is there, I was just already struggling to balance 8+ Sims.  No worries, he will make an appearance. You want to know what else bothers me about Sim's glitches? Whenever you save a plumbot as part of the family and place them down again, the plumbots look gets randomized, so I have to dig through all the parts to make him look like Glitch - every time.

Your writing makes me seriously doubt my own, Liv, you know that? Like...it's ridiculous how you manage to write these characters in such an endearing way that we all get so attached and our emotions flair up Noten's ghostly cameo (or not ghost? Resurrected perhaps maybe? I hope? PLEASE?).
Aw, you seriously flatter me, you really shouldn't doubt your own writing though! It takes a lot of time to get people involved with characters, I'm only on my 5th generation, so I've had 5 previous generations to work that one out. :) As for Noten, I'm trying to work out a way I might possibly resurrect him, I mean, it's thoroughly a possibility in my mind because we have yet to see someone else very important make a cameo anyways, and while I'm juggling with getting everything back into place in Barnacle Bay so they can return there eventually, though I might just give up on that town because it happened twice there. In two brand spanking new versions of the town. Which is unbelievable. I'll work something out though.

You're absolutely incredible and I hope to high heaven that your game stops freaking out so you can continue to play this story! I would be devastated if it ended. And, random side note, I saw that purple plumbob over the queen. Where's the genie you had ensorceling her? =p The problems you had with Edward and Thomas disappearing happened to me in my old Morae legacy too, btw. So I know how it feels.
Drat. I've been discovered. Well, I knew it couldn't last forever. Precious was the genie Noten freed at the beginning of his stay in I.P. She's the reason I've been able to juggle these story lines without having 10+ Sims in my household. I've been so careful to keep those purple plumbobs out and keep her well away from everyone else, but it was just too hard when I was juggling 8 Sims and Bear that last go round and trying to keep them from all running away the second their ensorcelment ended meant sacrificing secrecy. I just don't want to add any more large mods I have to worry about (such as portrait panel and all the other ones to make having more than 8 Sims work), so I just juggle the two households. One had Emrin, Glitch, Atrox and Atrox's wife (soon to make a cameo as well, along with a picture of their child - PS. Atrox's wife is a townie from another town. *evilgrins* I put so much planning into this), and the other has Edward, Palmira, Mary, Mylee, Precious and Bear. I could merge them, but then Precious would be useless as you can't ensorcel Sims in a full house, and I need to make sure the Queen does what I want, when I want, and now I'm possibly bringing back another few characters, so we'll see how it goes.
*Phew*
I knew if someone was going to find me out it would be you, haha.

Way to amused by the fact that you split my one comment into three parts to respond XD I ramble...a lot. XD I'll keep this one short and say that I'm super excited to see Atrox's family and more reunions...and if Noten is not this important sim that's coming back, I have no idea who it could be.

You are a brave person for not only juggling so many people, but also going back to IP, the glitchest town in the entire franchise. But I know all to well the problem with having to manipulate so many Sims at once. For my story, I recently made....9 more sims? I think about 9 that I have to bring in at some point, in addition to 6 I already control. >.<

Just like to make sure I address all of the comment, that's all. :) Oh, there's more than one important Sim coming back, but I won't say anything. It's difficult, but I finally broke down and just added them all to one family, and man is that easier. IP is very glitchy and laggy, but I've never lost a Sim there yet, so I prefer it to Barnacle Bay at the moment. Haha, best of luck with those extra 9 Sims and remember you're not the only one! I feel your pain!

Liv, those are some awesome updates!  Kudos on working around the glitch and creating such a great story!
Thank you kindly! It wasn't easy and I'm not sure if I'll be able to go back to BB again, but I'll keep trying.

Just loved Edward's casual entrance.  He's so cool!  I like Mary, but Ed was actually my choice  :=)
Edward is one of my favorites, and secretly I was rooting for him too. ;)

Palmira is gorgeous as ever. As soon as I saw the hair I recognized Atrox! And Emrin! It's so awesome how you brought them back and tied them back into the story line. I'm sorry that they had to meet Palmira in that way, but at least they got to meet her and hear what a great man their son had become. Edward looked so cool when came in through the door!
Palmira is always gorgeous. She just knows how to rock style. Yeup! They're back for a while, and so will be a few others, the reunion is most certainly not over yet. (evilgrins). Edward is my Jack Sparrow character. He just knows how to make an entrance.

This was such a sweet update: all the reunions, yay! It's nice to see the family coming together to support each other, and that Mary is finally going to step into her own. Eager to see where she goes from here.
Thank you so much! Mary will step out on her own, but I have one more chapter not quite centered on our heroine, then it's back to her being awesome.

Wow back to Isla Paradiso, I didn't expect to be going back there. I loved this reunion scene though. It was so great to see Emrin and Atrox again and it was very emotional.
It wasn't an easy choice, but it beat trying to deal with all the bugs in Barnacle Bay! I'm so glad you liked it. :) Thank you very much for your kind words.


Thank you to all who have stuck around so long, I'm sorry I've been sporadic in posting, and now, I'm sure this is a chapter everyone as been waiting on for a long time, so I should just get to it.

The Gift
After speaking with the Queen, Mary wandered back to her old home for a while, she needed some time to lay out and think. Palmira stayed with Edward and her newfound family until it grew dark. Edward took off for the King's chambers, but Palmira felt she owed it to Emrin and Atrox to walk them to the place they were staying.
Emrin was muttering a few things under her breath and Atrox was mostly silent for the walk. The house - provided by Queen Carolina - was just down the road from the old house she had set aside for Palmira to raise her children in with Mylee. The memories were a small reminder of the way this place used to be - and the reasons why she left.
Palmira was stunned to see a Robot outside waiting for them, she looked around and wondered if she was just seeing things. It wasn't until she saw Atrox waving at the metal that she started to understand. Noten had said his childhood was unconventional, but Palmira never thought it was this unconventional.
A sweet blond woman was also waiting outside. It wasn't long after their arrival that Atrox embraced the blond while the most interesting exchange occurred between the robot and Emrin.

While it was shocking to Palmira at first, she began to see it as the same thing she was seeing in Atrox and the woman she assumed was his wife.

Yes, love was all around her and it made her feel even more lonely than she had before. She shifted uncomfortably for a moment. When Emrin broke free of her embrace she settled into a explaining shortly what had happened. The robot - who had been addressed as being Glitch - looked at her with complete sympathy. Palmira had no idea Robots could even feel, let alone feel empathy for others. The blond girl looked completely shocked, only uttering a few words to Atrox. "I'm... I'm so sorry sweetheart, are you ok?" She looked overwhelmed and worry covered her pretty face.

Atrox looked at his wife kindly and smiled. "I'm ok, especially since I came home to you." He said sweetly, and Palmira could feel it in his words - he and Noten truly were brothers. The thought brought a soft smile to her face.
Emrin soon spoke up softly, she looked dazed. "I need to make a phone call... Glitch, help me please?" She asked kindly, and the robot tended to her and helped her to start walking inside. Emrin turned quickly, "do you think you can show me his... grave... tomorrow?" She asked, addressing Palmira.
"Of course." Palmira nodded, still feeling uncomfortable and out of place amongst this loving family.

Glitch and Emrin disappeared into the house, and Palmira watched them go until Atrox grabbed her attention. "Palmira, this is my wife, Amelia." He said making a gesture to the pretty blond woman.
Palmira went to extend her hand but was instead pulled into an embrace. "I'm so truly sorry to hear about what happened..." Amelia whispered to her. "I can't imagine the pain you must feel."

Her forwardness caught Palmira off-guard, but she simply smiled. "Thank you for your kindness, it's nice to meet you Amelia."
Amelia easily stepped into making conversation after that, mainly out of concern for the lineage being passed suddenly to her child who had no idea there was even a legacy to be passed.
"No, no, my daughter Mary has taken the reins. She never met her father, but she seems to be handling her responsibilities well." Palmira said kindly, not giving away anything about her daughter that she didn't have to.
"I'm so sorry, that must be awful for her to be raised without a father... Forgive me if I touched on a weird subject, it's just that we worried we might have left the fate of a legacy in our party-animal daughter's hands. Kaida is sweet, but she's not ready for such a responsibility." Amelia looked embarrassed.
Palmira completely understood that reaction as she thought of her own Edward. "Do you have a picture of her? I'd much like to see her."
This perked Amelia right back up, she elbowed Atrox who soon pulled out his wallet to reveal his only daughter.

Palmira looked at her in awe for a moment. "She's beautiful."
Atrox looked at his wife lovingly, "takes after her mom." Palmira smiled at them, wondering if this is how everyone perceived her with Noten - his sweet compliments overwhelming the men of the room and inciting envy in the women.
Amelia looked at Palmira softly, "would you mind bringing Edward and Mary for me to meet tomorrow? I would really like a chance to meet them."
Palmira nodded, "of course, we'll all stop by tomorrow, it will be good for us to go visit Noten again." She smiled sadly. Amelia's face twisted into sadness and an awkward silence loomed for a moment longer before Palmira excused herself to get home. They said their goodbyes and Amelia hugged her once again.
Palmira went home and slept with her children on the silly bunkbed once again.

The next day came and Palmira rounded up her adult children to visit their extended family.

All was quiet in the morning as they walked towards the door. They were greeted by Glitch who introduced himself and encouraged them to join with he and Emrin in the living room. They all sat and Glitch gave Emrin a reassuring squeeze.

"Thank you for coming today." Emrin said quietly, "I think it's time I came clean about my conversation I had last night. As you're well aware, my lineage stems from a line in a legacy, a very large one." Emrin stated, "how aware are you of the gifts my family has?"
Palmira vowed to do most of the talking, since Edward was barely awake and Mary was still uncomfortable coming forward after saying goodbye to Thomas. She was confused though, she knew her family lineage tied to Noten was filled with stories of magic and Watcher's interference, but in all honesty she thought it was just nonsense. "I'm sorry... gifts?"
"My grandmother Agnes was the founder of our great line, revered far across the land as one of the most powerful magic-bearers of all time. It has passed from generation to generation, but it fizzled out prior to me. My mom did not directly inherit the gift, but her sister was supposedly blessed with it. My Aunt Raven was a funny woman, spending most of her time bent over a cauldron rather than at her spells - but she did have a son. My cousin Falor inherited her magic-prowess that was gifted to her directly by the Watcher. Falor honed his magic to a fine point, and used it to resurrect his now-wife Demi after she was killed by the same Dexter who wishes to start a war with your Queen."
Palmira's head was spinning, Mary and she shared a look that agreed that they were both in over their heads, while Edward was casually reclining in his seat, half-snoozing with a bright grin.

Emrin continued, "so I called my cousin Falor and confessed to him my great distraught at discovering my Son's death. I pleaded with him to come here and see what he could do."
This woke Edward up. He sat up entirely and looked at Emrin for a long second the room was silent as they waited for him to speak. "Hold on..." He held a finger up as he waited for words to form in his mouth. "So my great-something-uncle can raise people from the dead because my great-something-grandmother was one of the most powerful being that ever existed?" He paused for a moment and looked down. "I wish I would've known that sooner - imagine all the girls I could've picked up with that!"
Emrin and Glitch snickered at that while Palmira put her head in her hands. "Edward..." Palmira groaned. "I'm sorry, please go on, Emrin."

Glitch took the conversation from there. "Falor was unsure if he would be able to do anything, and he warned us ahead of time. He said there was a good chance there was nothing he could do at all, but that he needed to consult with someone first before arriving. His plane is set to arrive today, as it should have left last night."
Everyone was quiet for a moment, Palmira looked down at the floor and finally asked, "what does this mean?"
Emrin and Glitch looked at each other, and Glitch spoke again, "it means we could be reunited with Noten again, if Falor is to succeed."
The conversation grew quiet again. Mary was the one who spoke this time: "when will he arrive?"
Glitch's eyes shook for a moment before he looked at her again, "in about ten minutes, assuming all went well."
Everyone finally quieted as they sat. They would occasionally ask a few questions about the whereabouts of Atrox and Amelia or if someone slept well, but for the most part the group sat in silence as time ticked by.
Ten minutes seemed to go on forever, so did fifteen, and then twenty. Glitch was about to make a phone call when the door suddenly propped open.

A graceful older man swooped in through the door and walked with pride. He held on to a cane that he didn't appear to need, but it made him appear all the more elegant.

"Falor!" Emrin stood up quickly and went to embrace her cousin. "I'm so glad you could make it." She mumbled to him. "We're about to head off to Noten's grave if you would come with us."

Falor gave a soft smile, "I'm afraid I don't think I can." He started. "You see, there's simply no way I can raise him." Falor confessed.
"Why not?!" Emrin said, her voice crumbling. "You raised Demi, didn't you?"
Falor looked away, "I did, but it was merely by luck I was able to do so. You need to be given the gift by the Watcher in order to possess magic great enough to fully bring someone back. Demi was my soul-mate, no - she was my world at the time, so that made up the difference and allowed me to successfully raise her. It's just not possible for me to do." Falor said softly.
Emrin stepped aside breathlessly. Even Palmira felt crushed by his words.
Falor looked at everyone in the room, "so I decided to consult with someone who can." He started, "wait here."
And just like that, the graceful man who had been the reason for hope had left, causing a crushing feeling in Palmira's chest, yet when he returned, he wasn't alone, he lovingly helped an older woman across the threshold.

Palmira looked to others in the room for clues to who she was, but all she saw was pure shock on the faces of Emrin and Glitch.

Emrin began to stutter, "Gran-grandmother?"

She quickly went to embrace the older woman. "How is this possible?!" There was disbelief amongst the room.
"Oh please, dear, I've been around for a long time before I started this legacy, do you honestly think I would just up and die?" Agnes chuckled roughly.
Edward grinned from across the way at his newfound relative - Agnes, "a woman after my own heart."

Agnes shook her head and laughed again, "oh dear Edward, you are quite the charmer, aren't you?" She teased, it took Edward back though, as she hadn't even been introduced to everyone yet she knew all of their names. "Mary, my heiress, come here my child." Mary slowly got up from her seat, looking a little shaken. "Don't be so frightened my dear, I don't bite. Come closer." Agnes reached out when Mary got close enough to her. "Aren't you a beautiful girl?" Agnes acknowledged. "There now, don't be shy, I have something for you."

Mary looked timid as Agnes suddenly put her hand on Mary's head. She drew a quick circle on Mary's forehead with her thumb. Mary's eyes went wide when Agnes pulled away suddenly.

"I feel... dizzy?" A light enveloped Mary as she started to stumble to the floor.

Her face developed markings that looked as though they had been burned onto her.

Everyone jumped up to go to her but Agnes held up her hand and they all stopped. "Calm now, she's ok. Edward, be a doll and move your sister to the couch. Now if everyone else would be so kind as to escort me to my Great-Grandson who could likely use a hand?"
Palmira, Emrin, Glitch and Falor gathered their things and helped Agnes out to a taxi to take them to the once familiar island while Edward stayed back to watch his sister as she lay unconscious on the couch.


After an hour, Mary started to stir. "Oh gee-" She sat up slowly, "my head really hurts."

As she sat up and rubbed her head, the tattoos that were there dissipated and melted into her skin.
Edward looked at his sister with wide eyes. "Uh... sis... what the heck happened to you?"
"What happened to me?" Mary asked confused before her memories flooded back... "what happened to me?!"
Edward smirked. "I don't know, what's why I asked you."

Mary stood to try to get her brother to talk more but she felt a strange pulse run through her that built up through her body quickly. She clenched her hands together and the force pushed them apart to reveal a bright pink apple now resting in her hands.

Edward looked at her with wide eyes, "uh, sis... did you just make an apple appear out of thin air?"
"I think I did." She said quietly.
"Well, my family just got weirder." Edward shrugged.
Mary rolled her eyes, "where did everyone else go?"
"Just to go resurrect our dad, you know, normal family stuff." Edward said with his witty smile.
"Wait, they weren't just pulling our legs about that? That is actually happening?"
"I think so." Edward said, more solemnly this time.
"When do you think they'll be back?"
Edward shook his head and looked at his sister. "I really don't know sis, I really don't know."

Oh my Watcher, I was NOT expecting Agnes and Falor!! Ugh, this is an incredible legacy. I love how you just effortlessly weave all the previous generations together to this single point and it all just wraps up so nice and perfect with a bow after every chapter! I'd kill to be able to do that. I have to say, the Reapers are lucky to have such a kind and powerful founder (in comparison to my poor legacy that's running for their lives away from their evil founder). It absolutely warmed my heart to see Agnes again. I think I'm rambling again...

I thought only Evil Witches could conjure the pink poisoned apples....is there something you're not telling us, Liv? If that was supposed to be a surprise, I'm sorry if I spoiled it. I can't help but notice these things.

I'm really glad that wasn't cheesy, I like to avoid that as much as possible but sometimes it's hard... Edward makes it easier though, quite the comedic relief! I have a whole explanation ready for the reason I am passing on the witchitude, but I'll have to save that for another chapter.

Ramble all you want, it's completely fine, I do it all the time! Agnes and Falor for the win! The generations just kind of weave themselves in, I'll run into a game-breaking glitch then I'll get frustrated and sit on it for a while then suddenly, this great idea comes into my head. I actually thought of Noten's Cameo in the bar with Mary long before she was chosen as heir, Mary Read's husband died young, prior to them having children, so when I was thinking about Mary (Reaper's) future, I thought, "well, when she's grieving she'll have one crazy hallucination..." and it all went down from there. The real question is... was that a hallucination? >.> <.<  ;)
Agnes is the bomb diggity and she'll be around for years to come.
Also, no worries, Mary isn't evil, that was just her very first conjured apple and she failed! :)

Awww Mary's finally going to meet her dad. I am so happy for her. I can easily imagine how that would feel ... to be so excited and nervous/scared at the same time.

I have to admit that image of poor Palmira standing there while everyone around her is making out made me laugh a lot.

Noten is of course resurrected first, but I'm quite sure who will be the second dear man Mary brings back from the dead.

Does that mean Ezran is still alive and kicking? I know he wasn't exactly a fan favorite, but he was still kinda funny.

OMG LOL. Everyone's in a roller coaster right now, I hope you give us a good ride, Liv. I expect you to. Haha, kid. Awesome as always!

It's going to be a Paradiso/Barnacle Bay armada of the Reapers. I'm super duper excited!

Atrox's wife is Amelia Loveland from Lunar Lakes, isn't it? I really like the hairstyle you gave her.

Wow a lot of comments! I'm thrilled!

Awww Mary's finally going to meet her dad. I am so happy for her. I can easily imagine how that would feel ... to be so excited and nervous/scared at the same time.

I have to admit that image of poor Palmira standing there while everyone around her is making out made me laugh a lot.

I'm excited in general for the reunion, watching Palmira reunite with him was so, incredibly heart-wrenching. Haha, I thought it was rather funny myself though, Palmira was just standing there awkwardly shifting back and forth while the two couples made out. I'm sure she must have just felt like that 5th wheel.


Noten is of course resurrected first, but I'm quite sure who will be the second dear man Mary brings back from the dead.
::) We'll just have to see. Mary has quite a lot of other things to do now, she's got a very full schedule now.


Atrox's wife is Amelia Loveland from Lunar Lakes, isn't it? I really like the hairstyle you gave her.
Bingo! Yes she is, she's quite the doll, and their daughter is so sweet.


Plot twists galore! OMG
Brown ND Tommy are coming back now, and their will be a big family reunion and stuff. Yay!
L
Haha, and all I can hear in my head is "TWIST ending! Man I did not see that coming!" (I'm a Croods fan, if you can't tell).
I never said I'd bring Thomas back, that's entirely up to Mary, and she has a large choice looming over head.

Agnes and Falor showed up! That's awesome! And now Mary is a witch! That just keeps getting better and better  :) Does that mean Noten is coming back?? Please tell me that he is!  ;D or actually, don't tell me yet! I want it to be a surprise  ::)
Ok then, I won't tell you. ;) Though sad times are ahead and so are big choices. I can't just let everything be happy, otherwise the story would lose it's realism.

Whatever realism it has, at least. Haha.


So much awesome!! I love it!
Thank you! I'm really glad things are turning out as I hoped they would. :)


Does that mean Ezran is still alive and kicking? I know he wasn't exactly a fan favorite, but he was still kinda funny.
Ezran is most certainly alive and kicking! He's the youngest of my third generation, so he's definitely there. I'm glad there's an Ezran fan out there! I'll make sure he sends his love some way or another - he's too fabulous to leave out!


OMG NOTEN IS RETURNING TO US IN ALL HIS BLOND TAN GLORY SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!  ;D
*ahem* That is all.   :-X

(P.S. Glicht and Emrin are such a cute couple, great story twist Livvie!)
I had a feeling you would approve, though you forgot the muscular part. ;)  Emrin and Glitch have a timeless love story, though as she gets older I worry about him. We'll just have to take things as it comes.


You just like to play with our emotions don't you? First i'm in tears because Noten died, and now there's hope! You better not be pulling our leg.   :(
I am quite the master of emotional swings, aren't I? Haha, I kid. Actually you have no idea how torn I was about bringing Noten back. I guess death felt like it should be more permanent? I'm not sure. Anyways, he's back now, so there's no turning back!


OMG LOL. Everyone's in a roller coaster right now, I hope you give us a good ride, Liv. I expect you to. Haha, kid. Awesome as always!

It's going to be a Paradiso/Barnacle Bay armada of the Reapers. I'm super duper excited!
Thank you! I'm trying to ensure things make sense, but that isn't always easy.

Re: Reaper's Genetic Legacy Experiment: Hello Again

Hello Again
Palmira felt her stomach twisting inside of her. She kept wondering if this was all real, or if everyone she was surrounded by were just crazy. Palmira had half a mind to go off on the elderly Agnes for injuring her daughter, but somewhere inside herself she knew that everything was ok, and that's what confused her.
Agnes saw the conflicting emotions and smiled kindly. "Mary is just fine, I assure you. I just had to give her the gift of the Watcher. The Watcher feels terrible that she got disconnected from the family line."
"The... Watcher?" Palmira felt skeptical.
Agnes nodded softly. "She's only able to communicate through a medium. She can talk to anyone so long as the medium is present, but when there isn't someone there that connects the gap she cannot interact or communicate like she once could."
Agnes looked forward and let that information sink in. Palmira was letting the dots connect, "so she never really intentionally abandoned us? She never let Noten die purposefully?"
"She couldn't interact - or interfere - with the motions set in place. She's a great watcher, and very caring. She listens and tries very hard to make our lives fulfilling, but as you can see as of late, no one has achieved anything. Lifetime wishes were thrown to the wayside and happiness is at the lowest it could be." Agnes shook her head sadly, "and all she could do was watch it crumble. She didn't realize how important the medium was until it was too late. Noten couldn't hear her words of wisdom or guidance, he didn't hear her stopping him from leaving Monte Vista - there was nothing she could do except watch the actions as they fell."
"Why didn't she send you sooner then?"
"She didn't send me, it wasn't until I came into contact with Mary that I was able to hear her again. The current heir is the one who she follows. Emrin was when she sensed things weren't going so well. She was starting to lose touch with everyone. She assumed it was the future messing with her communication and making it fuzzy, as when Emrin returned to Monte Vista where Raven, Isolde, Isabel, Falor and many others lived - communication got clearer, and everything seemed fine."
"I thought she was all-knowing?" Palmira said, anger boiling up in her.
Agnes looked at her for a moment thoughtfully then burst out laughing. "She wishes." Agnes shook her head. "She's smarter than a lot of us as she knows more about our world than most of us do, but when it comes to her own she's just as clueless as we are, which is the funny thing."
Palmira almost felt embarrassed, but as she saw the island looming overhead she felt all feelings of happiness drain away. "We're here." She said almost in a whisper.

As everyone clamored out onto the beach that held so many haunting memories Palmira almost wanted to run away. Could she really get a chance to see him again? What if this was all a huge failure and her hopes were crushed again. She couldn't bear it anymore, but knowing there was even the slightest chance for Noten to come back made her keep stepping forward.
Agnes calmly asked everyone to wait on the shore, it was best if it was just her and Palmira who went forward. Normally, Palmira shouldn't be present at all so nothing could interfere with the line of magic, but Agnes was very skilled and powerful enough to manage with her there.
Palmira was already in tears at the sight of the grave.

Agnes softly patted her shoulder. "Being a widow is much harder than anyone will ever understand."
Agnes' presence brought an eerie calm to Palmira, and she couldn't exactly place why. She'd never been enthused by Witchcraft or anything of the like, but she never believed she was intolerant about it. It felt as though she were exposed to this woman - that Agnes could read her thoughts and emotions like an open book and it made Palmira's skin crawl. But in a way it made her feel better that she didn't have to express anything to her either, the things that were hardest to say and ask were already known.
Agnes wandered a few feet away from the grave as Palmira stood in silence wondering how this feeble woman would be capable of such a feat as defeating death itself.

"No worries dear, I've defeated death many times." Agnes chuckled as Palmira noted to keep thoughts like that to a minimum. "Now, this will be difficult for you to see, I can imagine, but I'll need you to stay as perfectly still as you possibly can manage, and take a step back for me so I have a direct line of sight."
Palmira obeyed quietly and took a few steps back and froze, trying hard to breathe as little as possible. Noten could be coming back, and she felt light headed enough to faint.
Agnes swayed her hands in through the air, muttering something in a language Palmira couldn't begin to grasp. An aurora of lights began to follow the movements of her hands.

Agnes was concentrating fiercely. Palmira stood off to the side, biting her lip and holding herself perfectly still with her eyes fixated on the grave.

A grave which began to crumble as Agnes struggled to keep a magic stream steadily on to it's target.

The grave eventually caved in, defeated. Everything stilled and quieted as Palmira watched in horror as a hand came up from the ground, the decaying hand clutched the ground around it to help pull the rest of the body up.

It was Noten though, but he didn't seem to be all there. Agnes sighed lovingly. "Oh Noten, you're not looking too good." She chuckled. "Come'ere love, let me fix you up."
Noten shambled forward, stumbling on his broken limbs to move where Agnes wanted him. His mouth hung open, lacking the muscles to close it anymore, as most of his body did. Agnes raised her hands again and another aurora came spilling out, this time, a golden color.

Noten was slow to react, and slow to move, so when the light hit him, the decay fought back until it was won out over the brilliant light that encased him.

And he was all himself once again. He stretched his arms out and scratched his head. "Jeez Gran, you really got to work on your technique! Man, am I sore!" He laughed loudly and openly, his laughter filling the air and resonating with warmth. He looked at Agnes and brushed the dirt off of his suit. "Is Palmira, by chance, around? It's been far too long since I've seen her beautiful face."
Palmira's heart stopped, she stood waiting to be recognized, staring in awe at her husband come to life. She seemed generally shocked he even remembered her, so much time has passed yet it felt like no time had passed at all as she stood there.
Agnes motioned her over, "Come now, don't be shy." Palmira felt as though all the spotlights had switched to her. Her throat had gone dry and now she had caught the attention of Noten who swirled around to see her. She felt weak in her knees as she walked slowly over, worrying her legs would give out at any step as Noten looked when he had just been pulled from the ground. Noten was smiling at her, the smile that warmed her heart and melted her every time she saw it. She hadn't realized until then that she was crying openly as she stepped over towards him. He shook his head softly as he smiled at her.
"Hello, again..." Palmira said, her voice shaking as he smiled at her. She moved to wipe away her tears, feeling self-conscious as he looked her over. She was older now and felt less beautiful in her own skin.
He grinned wildly at her. "Hello again, Palmira." Saying her name made her heart jump. He stood, daring her to make a move with his eyes that were now so full of life. Palmira could remember the day Matteo brought him home - how still he was; how lifeless. Tears threatened to pour as her eyes stung. In a moment she collapsed into him, pulling him into a kiss and breaking the tension that had stood between them. It was a moment that caused tears to flow from Palmira's eyes. She never thought she would feel this again in a million years. He had left her, and the earth and now there he was and she couldn't get a grip on herself.

When Palmira stood back Noten's smile became contagious as it always was before. He gripped her arms and pulled her into him again. It was like a dream that Palmira never wanted to wake up from.

She wasn't a widow. She wasn't depressed. She wasn't alone, and she wasn't going to let go of that ever again.

Loved Noten's humorous response to being brought back.  Man am I stiff.  Well, rigor mortis will do that  :=)

The last few lines brought tears in my eyes. I feel so good for Palmira and Noten. Hopefully it'll all go better this time, with no traitors or such to end their happiness.

I want to cry, your photos never load(ed for the past chapter update, too). I don't know why.  :'(

I had no choice but to do with the narration. But I have to say that it's cool to have Noten as her dad. I approve!  :P

Haha, yeah I couldn't let Noten just come in quietly. That just wouldn't be in character for him.

Thank you! I greatly appreciate that!

Aw, if it makes you feel any better, I teared up writing it. :) They're a wonderful couple together.
I think it's safe to say Palmira and Noten have a chance at happiness. :)

Oh shoot. I recently had to switch from Carl's to MediaFire which I'm slowly getting used to but it takes forever to load the pictures, which means I might have to switch once again to another file. Hopefully it won't be a common occurrence. :/


Anyways, sorry about the delay, I've had a pretty rough week but it's over now. I managed to get through it thanks to my Sims, Long Live the Queen and Mythbusters. Thank you all for continued comments and support for the story! It will resume shortly - I know what I need to write I just need the pictures to match it. Give me about a day or so and you should see an update!
