The Boss: "We meet in this neutral place for a special session of The Council.  We welcome all that have been able to come."
Roamer: "I think a few introductions are in order."
The Boss: "That is probably a good start."


The Boss: "I should need no introduction.  I have brought with me one of my own - Mark."
Mark the Reaper: "Sup?"
The Boss: -rolls her eyes-


Roamer: "I am Roamer of the Swifthoof Clan.  I have brought with me one of my oldest friends, A R Tealeaf."
Ankou: "Hello all. You can call me by my first name Ankou."
Roamer: "We have both involved heavily with this conflict and wish to see it resolved quickly."


Reka: "I probably don't need an introduction either huh?  Yes I'm Reka Grim."
Artie: "I don't think so."
Reka: "It's still my name!"
Alien: "Calm down everyone.   I am R-T13."


Artie: "For enemies, you're all very incredibly handsome.  I am Artie.  And this is my great great great great grandaughter who is also my former watcher the victim."
Airica: "You can call me Rica."
The Boss: "Now that we all know each other.  Let's get out of sight before one of the normals find us."  -snaps fingers-


The Boss: "Everyone sit down please.   Girls.  I have provided you with seats for the time being.  Artie.  Koala"
Artie: "Yes Boss."


R-T13: "I think we should start with the fact that some of you are thieving vermin and you'vebroken the treaty."
Ankou: "WE broke the treaty?  YOU interfering and meddlesome techies broke the treaty first."
R-T13: "The Boss broke it first."


The Boss: -creepy child laughter- "You little green men are always so silly.  I did no such thing."
Artie: -eye brow up-  "How could you even accuse our side of breaking it first?"
R-T13: "Broke the treaty when you decided to meddle in watcher/sim affairs."
Artie: -eye brow up again- "Meddle in watcher/sim affairs.  Because of you, my watcher is a Sim!  That's breaking the cardinal rule!"
The Boss: "SILENCE!"


Airica: "Psst.. Artie.. Shut up already. Need him remember?"


The Boss: "She's right."
Artie: "Weren't you in a different chair a second ago?"
The Boss: "Let's hear all the accusations from both sides before we decide what needs to be done."


Reka: "Can I make an accusation?"
Airica: "It's not like you won't keep talking if they tell you no."
Reka: "Yeah well I think you should be held responsible for my death.  Being burned alive has to count against you somehow.  A real watcher would have never let it happen."
Airica: "A real Sim would have known to put themselves out!"
Reka: "I was a real Sim!"


The Boss: "SILENCE Children!"
Roamer: "Excuse me."
The Boss: "You haven't been speaking but now unless you have something to bring to the table I think we should take a moment and reflect on the things that have been happening."


Airica: "Why do you think it was my fault for getting you killed?  With all the technology and the watching that your side was doing, shoudln't they have saved you when I couldn't?"
Reka: "You mean wouldn't"
Airica: "I couldn't!  We were in the middle of Aker's portrait.  You know what happens when they are being set up."


Reka: "You always make it out like things are harder than they are.  Obviously, they're not.  You guys finished didn't you?"
Airica: "There is nothing easy about a dynasty.  Nothing.  It's hard on the founder, the heirs, the spouses, the helpers and the watcher."
Reka: "Oh boohoo. If you can do one, than anyone can."


Airica: "You really believe that don't you?"
Reka: "Of course I do.   If you and that bumbling red idiot over there can actually get through one, than everyone should be able to."
Airica: "You're wrong."
Reka: "I can do anything that you can do."


The Boss: "Yes Yes! I love it!"


R-T13: " You can't be serious."


Ankou: "Considering her origin, there is that new set.  No one has finished it yet but that doesn't mean it can't happen."
Roamer: "It would be nice to see her pony up with all the vitriol she's been spitting."


The Boss: "What do you think Artemis?"
Artie: "I think we're forgetting an important step.  Rica is still sitting there in Sim form."
The Boss: "You're right.  In my excitement, I forgot about the other thing we are for.    T13 - you need to release her.  You saw what your astonishing lack of control did to that one world.  We need the watcher returned to her place."


R-T13: "No."
The Boss: "No?  Did you really just say no?"
R-T13: "She damaged our property.  She caused chaos and that ghost boyfriend of hers wreaked absolute horror on our systems during his stay.  We will not release her."
The Boss: "You will release her."


R-T13: "I have another idea.  Since you are all determined to make one of mine do the new challenge, you should be willing to make one of yours do it."
The Boss: "What stakes?  You could pull her mid challenge and that would be unfair."
R-T13:  "With the help from someone in that craptastic realm of the pony's, I say one of mine and one of yours.  The better team will win obviously.  If our side wins, a renegotiation of the treaty including an information release imposed upon the Origin project."
The Boss: "And if our side wins, things go back to the way they were as they are supposed to.  We maintain the balance.  I'll even let you keep that creepy doll factory of yours. "
Artie: "And Rica.. what about her while I'm doing yet another one of these things."
R-T13: "Oh you failed to understand what I was asking.   I want her to be the one from your side."


The Boss: -fiendishly delighted moodlet - check-  "Ohhh yes. yes.  I do believe you just gave me the upper hand my friend."
Artie: "Wait.. You can't be serious."
Airica: "I'm doing another one?!"
Roamer: "Not just another one.  The new one."
Reka: "And I am too."
Airica: "Scared?"
Reka: "No.  Anything you can do I can obviously do better.  I'm far more superior than the likes of you."
The Boss: "Tealeaf.  The rules say something about random right?"
Ankou: "Yes.  We'll have to use the randomizers."
Mark: "To the batcave!"


The Boss: "There you go girls.  Do a quick setup of your town of choice.  The rules are right in front of you."
Airica: "I helped with some of these rules."
The Boss: "Then you should be able to do this faster."
Reka: "Wait.  I don't want to be in the same town that she is. "
Airica: "Then stay away from SV."
Reka: "Oh of course.. overdone Sunset.  Obviously I shouldn't have worried that you would have chosen the better Riverview."
Airica: "Just turn back into a toy so your mouth is sewn shut will you?"
Artie: "Hey.  You be careful.  Don't forget to place --"
Airica: "I know what I'm doing remember.  In fact, go over there and plug this in for her so she doesn't call an unfair advantage."
Artie: "I don't wanna."
Airica: "Then give it to green you.  I don't care. Just do it."
Reka: "I don't need your help."
R-T13: "But you will accept the offer anyway.  Thank you red me." -takes the settings and helps Reka plug them in-
Airica: "Done"
Reka: "Done"


The Boss: "Goodbye Girls.. Have fun with Billy and Christopher."
Artie: "I'm so not sure about this."
R-T13: "For a handsome guy, you seem a little soft around the edges for that one."
Artie: "Not exactly and I can prove it to you if you want.  I've been working with that woman for a long time now.  If you took the time to know who you were messing with, you'd feel bad about it.  Trust me."
The Boss: "Artie.. you have people in your home with decisions to make."
Artie: "Yeah I know.  I should check on them."
Roamer: "Ankou.  We should go prepare her."
Ankou: "She's still in the wardrobe system due to the change."
Roamer: "Yes but she will be our representative in this matter.  She carries the DNA."
Ankou: "What about the scheduled transformation?"
Roamer: "The outside changes the inside remains the same so she will is still the perfect choice."
The Boss: "Mmkay.  I think it's time to go before one of you guys piddles on the tile."
Mark: "Hey Artie.. I'll give you a ride to the office real quick if you want."
Artie: "Sure thanks.. I need to pick my amulet back up. "
R-T13: "I will be in touch, little one."
The Boss: "Of that I have no doubt.  Tell the others hello for me.  Remind them that poker night is at my place on Tuesday and they're in charge of snacks.  No space rock soup this time."

This way I won't get bored with just one file... right?  The new thread is already up and ready to go over here. If you want to give it a looksee.

So awesome! 

Thank you.  I was actually worried that The Meeting would bomb for most of my fans.

I could never be disappointed with more of the Boss, she's awesomely scary. I think I'll dress up like her for the next Spooky day.

The Boss is sooo scary! I love that idea of dressing up as her, I wish I had more Forum friends here to get the reference! This is just so brilliant, I felt Reka's punishment and Rica's redemption coming on just before it hit. Mark of a good and believable story. All the different Arties were pretty amusing, especially when they abandoned all pretence and just called each other "green me" etc. That must have been so fun making them. And that futuristic-looking stuff was cool!

My, my, my! I leave for a few days, and all sorts of stories finish! You can't even begin to know how happy I was to see Artie's Dynasty in the Completed Stories section! (Well, you probably could. You're probably even happier)

All of these new developments are very interesting. I can't wait to check out the new Life States Dynasty. The Mole mention made me crack up, too. So that's how Witchybutt got involved after all.

I'm super excited to read the newst developments in the Grims, and I so happy that Artie has finally claimed a spot in the Hall of Fame!  ;D

Have been following this story and the other attemps , but haven't gotten around to commenting.

Love the way you chose to write the story, making all the characters come alive and keeping the readers on the edge of their chairs in anticipation of what's next with every chapter.

Sad to see it ends, but happy to see you and all the Grims getting into HoF.
Congratulations !

I know it! The reason why all the Grim's always put their plates away too fast! Artie's wife was a maid! ;D The hidden trait that makes your sims clean is the one that come from the maid!

Artie was neat too.  It doesn't help.  I just wish for once they'd keep their happy butts down you know?  :D Thanks for reading and remembering.  I did love that maid.

I have not forgotten my Grim boys.. I'm just having a lot of fun with Airica and Reka right now.. (Can you blame me?)

Congratulations Rica! I haven't commented much along the way but I'd been reading this attempt from the start. I love all your characters, it's rare in a story that I can't work out who my favourite is! Off to go read your life states dynasty now, congrats again!

I've only just started reading, but congratulations! Also (I'm on Gen 4 at the moment) Amon! From Legend of Korra! Was that your inspiration for the name, or was it just random?

Legend of Korra reference was kind of a bonus.  I didn't realize it was spelled the same until after it had been done.  I literally had a name of all gods that started with A from various generations to use.  Amon is Egyptian so I was using it because it worked in my backwards alphabet strategy.  If you notice, Artie's name actually comes last alphabetically which meant each new immortal/heir was on the top of the list for portraits/sculptures/cake and it was easier to find them amongst all their family members/friends.

Since you mentioned on the Immortal Dynasty thread that you were lucky that all your immortals until Airica were dudes due to Prim and Jules taking their sweet time with death, was that a deliberate decision or were you just extra-lucky that way?

At first I wanted all boys but only one was the result of apples.   I was lucky in a way.  I had wanted an all male dynasty at one point that way if something did go wrong, it would make things easier plus I would have been the only one to do it up until SimBlip's Centauri Dynasty.  Adrasteia was actually the result of watermelons though because I decided to give Airica her wish. 

If I do it again.. I might try to do all boys again because of that possibility.

Just wondering . . .
How did you coordinate the plot twist with Reka and Anita? Did Reka die first, and you duplicated the game and played out the rivalry with Anita for storytelling purposes, or did the events happen in the same order they did in the story?
