The Recollection

Chapter 1: The Beginning

Once, twice, about million times,
existed a certain Goth family.

It consisted of course of

Bella Goth
Global Superstar, Actress, Occultist
and the most loving mother of the family.

Cassandra Goth

Their firstborn daughter
gloomy teenager with artistic talents
and awkward social relationships.

and last but not least

Alexander Goth

The young son with brains of a genius
who had conspiracy theory for everything.

They led rather ordinary life, as Goths do.

    Chapter 2: Cornelia

    Chop chop chop Cassandra was making another salad for the hungry family

    T7X3n9A.png

    unfortunately no one in this house seemed to know how to cook
    so the duty somehow always seemed to fall on her
    even though she too, was no master chef.

    xRR5xjC.png

    Goths used to have butler but he had resigned under mysterious circumstances,
    possibly to do with his awful cat allergy and the arrival of Cornelia and her cats.

    ACLwe8m.png

    Cornelia of course, could have afforded to build yet another mansion
    but she had her own agenda.

    aSzVJAI.png

    she had long wanted to see her granddaughter Cassandra again,

    sgFralh.png

    for she had secrets to share.

    H3IRwA4.png

    What kind of secrets you ask?

    eiTlmuT.png

    Oh the ordinary ones,

    uug8TqA.png

    like when your grandchild is the first witch in generations
    to inherit magical lineage from both sides of the family,

    aH85BeE.png

    a joyous occasion indeed.

    Cornelia couldn't wait to introduce Cassandra to magic
    but first it seemed rite of ascension was in order

    RwuXocS.png

    sure she had the bloodline of her ancestress,
    but skipping generations always seemed to require some work Cornelia had learned.

    Chapter 3: Cassandra

    Somewhere inside Cassandra had always known there was something different about her family.

    KLLZXbe.png

    No matter how much her classmates had tried to tell her dragons do not exist,
    she remembered ever so fondly the days in old Goth Manor playing with the little fellows.

    fjrm5iI.png

    Of course it was long time ago
    and the dragons had been freed after they burned down several Goth houses

    BD0VUkK.png

    but it lived in Cassandras mind as eternal proof that magic is real.

    cojczXA.png

    Well, if her grandmothers ruthless training didn't.

    veVWgYW.png
    ibdrNUM.png
    F762uIM.png

    It was lot of pressure on poor old Cornelia to pass down all she knew about magic to her granddaughter.

    ESBAuph.png

    Everything should be absolutely perfect.

    xF2TADu.png

    Yes, everything.

    Chapter 4: Alexander

    Due to Cornelias enthusiasm in training Cassandra her grades had started to take hit

    PjH47zS.png

    it was becoming awful chore to do homework

    5Bo5hrP.png

    but Cassandra had to try and stay on top

    O2gb3Jh.png

    since she had plans to go to university
    with her best friend Vladislava who lived next door.

    89lfH1B.png
    cuKGac4.png

    despite all this she somehow had time to paint and read books,

    1r5KbKh.png
    QUt9lSY.png

    something that seemed completely incomprehensible to her father.

    9HgPxL4.png

    Yes, Mortimer was just happy to have time to grab a slice of pizza.

    m4Y4776.png

    Cassandras brother, Alexander, was most envious of her sister

    GhJfHNw.png

    he couldn't understand why only female Goths got to learn magic

    vEbDdGM.png

    Unfair, he proclaimed.

    X0vmITr.png

    Cornelia made sure to take some time to try and smooth things over

    3kmlRW3.png

    her scheme to constantly encourage Alexander on his more sporty endeavors seemed to do the trick.

    iiErHMx.png

    for now anyway.

    Chapter 5: First to Depart

    Time went by as Cassandra and Alexander were tortured by the school system
    (= they studied Simmingal thats not actually torture method)

    U53veTV.png
    LDl6MzR.png
    xUce9ig.png
    NcwXazg.png

    Soon enough it was Cassandras birthday,

    tABPoO0.png
    Veu3kDz.png

    and therefore it was time for her to leave for university with Vladislava.

    rKsfSP3.png
    NKOhfER.png

    Time passes so quick when you have lots to do,
    or so Mortimer and Bella thought.

    JmzupPc.png
    W6k5vEX.png
    RD5pOqI.png
    mpBaNoW.png
    6piThqG.png

    Luckily they still had some years before Alexander would leave the house.

    if67a02.png

    (Vladislava was very confused by this display of affection,
    I don't think she experienced her childhood quite so)

    NuEn7KY.png

    Bella assured Cassandra that she could come over or call the family anytime if she felt so

    h3pR445.png

    Cassandra: geez mom I know.

    GXnEHdv.png

    She was little embarrassed, the teen in her still resisted the affections of her parents.

    (great now they were cuddling each other, as usual.)

    Eqve1Xu.png

    there was some more hugging, advice and goodbyes

    JgEPnGo.png
    IO3fFuk.png
    cIx3dFi.png

    and then Cassandra too was free to explore the world,

    sDJifNZ.png

    or at least, discover university.

    Chapter 6: Hollow

    House was feeling rather hollow after Cassandra had left.

    n9AEJV0.png
    YHsIql8.png
    5kFoVOJ.png
    6mucs0c.png

    Sure, quite overdramatic, its not like she was dead.
    (unlike certain someone)

    iyVCGv9.png
    VxRe5ds.png
    XFrJJ2v.png
    BM7rOvc.png

    Bella and Mortimer seeked to fill that void with their jobs,

    zY72IST.png
    7dyZpso.png
    0F65fsz.png

    nightly activities

    and testing of Mortimers new potions.

    TVNwke9.png
    zmMMAaj.png
    SNKvXD6.png
    tFynoFN.png
    S8NhZ8t.png

    It was all quite thrilling,

    AjrKjc9.png

    but there was just this little sense of loneliness in Bellas mind
    IPi998F.png
    9AkbWRL.png

    and perhaps it was not ending anytime soon.

    This is great!
    I am still trying to figure out what the heck happened in the whole sleepwear potion-fire-simray sequence
    but perhaps it is best to leave to the imagination.
    I'll keep reading :)

    there is flirty potion you can make in science career that might have such effects when used :wink: and sim ray was used to put fire out as it had freeze ray function

    I was going to just use it to make things more flirty in the bedroom for them since i wanted to use the potions for something

    but actually i didn't know that could happen either so I was pleasantly surprised :lol:

    even more bamboozled I was after Dominic Fyres randomly ran in and then out during this whole chaos :lol: only to also stand out as if he had something to say :joy: talk about stalker fans...

    Chapter 7: Abduction

    Yes, as it was Bella was lonely.

    JWiZcGw.png

    Sure the nights were ever so hot,

    WVGdXYf.png

    so were the summer vacations they took

    Y4VjztE.png
    4T1Kc41.png

    but Bella had feeling Mortimer wasn't really there with her lately.

    xI0rIUK.png

    In fact, where was he currently instead of doing a lovely moonlight seance with her?

    5q1ZqEN.png

    Getting abducted by aliens?

    Y22l6nr.png
    epm3eH8.png
    aAA11Rb.png
    Dd0PIFM.png

    Well, at least that was a plausible excuse to miss a seance.

    lYsvYYP.png
    8LRLPq4.png
    gLCpqHc.png

    Yes it seemed for this one Bella should just forgive him.

    vt3ZdhT.png
    4jFIJlU.png

    Even though it did quite disturb little Alexander who was to join said seance.

    Ofcourse this was not first time Mortimer was abducted

    NjCwwdr.png
    AMXPj3X.png
    GsROySU.png
    U42bd17.png
    ZlD4pWc.png

    he and aliens had been in cahoots for a long time due to Mortimers career as scientist

    KSfjHKO.png
    YLAeprn.png

    they abducted him frequently to have a little chat about this or that scientific theory of theirs

    C6hUPIO.png
    7JIdoqn.png
    X8x0JDC.png
    NlRJCmG.png

    although this time thats not exactly what seemed to have happened.

    Fcd4Ju0.png
    2bJFfK5.png

    No, apparently the science experiment was Mortimer himself, and whatever was inside him.

    Chapter 9: Joyous Occasion

    The news were shocking to say the least

    VB4BApj.png

    and Bella had no idea how to react to them

    CctpalO.png

    I mean what does one even say when their husband seems to be impregnated by aliens?

    AT5Gbpf.png

    Congratulations?

    gO3InEA.png
    jAmUDQE.png

    Are you sure you didn't just land on one of my ghost friends when you fell from the heavens above?

    mGa8kwr.png
    OhN9tLC.png

    Who is it you are cheating on me with?

    rnLU4hs.png
    mjyZx7Y.png

    although Bella wasn't sure it was considered cheating at all to be honest
    she had heard aliens didn't exactly ask permissions and surely Mortimer would have said no

    ncf6srf.png

    or would he have...? She was not so sure anymore.

    c2gW0vt.png
    Tm0mLg8.png

    Was this now perhaps open relationship? Woohoo who you may?

    yPw8Cmh.png
    RLGLoUo.png

    Yeah didn't think so.

    545QEme.png

    All kinds of questions swirling around Bellas head had made her quite confused.

    Chapter: 10: Confusion

    Much like Bella other members of family were also rather confused.

    iwY08wK.png

    Despite her magical knowledge,
    it even mystified Cornelia how her upcoming grandchild was made.

    heyZC9J.png

    She hoped the child would be girl, for she wanted to teach it magic.

    l1uVwBG.png

    Mortimer made no promises.

    hp8eI96.png

    As for Alexander,

    J7D9txT.png

    he was sure this was just another part of aliens evil world domination scheme

    eyHKZcq.png

    He must have watched too many scifi films Mortimer thought to himself.

    mVXDMFE.png

    He tried to reassure Alexander it was all going to be okay,

    iU4enmB.png

    but to be honest he wasn't so sure himself.

    ENlAu8T.png

    Why the aliens had suddenly presented him with such gift?

    S1NR8ct.png

    and why now?

    Chapter 11: Arrival

    After some moments of confusion it was time for the child to arrive

    kt7Wxal.png

    Therefore Bella and Mortimer hurried to the hospital

    NBbw6hm.png
    PdxZ375.png

    Hospital in question was recently renovated
    which made things all the more confusing they thought

    qK5P8iz.png
    B8vfyuI.png
    ssYRalU.png

    but at least Mortimer had heard from his work associates
    that they do deliver alien babies

    9rLO9IM.png

    he had no idea how they knew that but he didn't question it

    j0gcCtU.png

    and as if strangeness of this affair was not enough,
    unluckily for Goths,

    nzeGBk7.png
    fHnSYaW.png

    the one in charge of baby deliveries was also Doctor Lothario.

    HhsdlHG.png

    Bella was not sure she wanted to see this

    sP15P7T.png
    YQCUQgk.png
    tdTW5Oz.png

    but no she supposed she should

    pJtYyxZ.png
    N8hD4Xl.png

    and regardless of all the drama
    eventually little blue boy was born.

    yREpo0Y.png

    They decided to call him Cerulean Goth.

    Chapter 12 : The Child

    Cerulean, being cutie patootie

    h9t1uWp.png

    had stolen Mortimers heart from the moment he was born.

    ChDBRXD.png

    Mortimer was overjoyed to be father to his third child

    QcgWFGQ.png
    mIb8oCy.png

    although he wasn't sure if birthing him made him in fact a mother.

    LCn2HFW.png

    Bella, meanwhile not usually jealous type

    AYCzZ2t.png

    was still trying to understand what had just happened

    fqCiotI.png

    it was strange to her how the little bundle of ??? seemed to have taken control over Mortimer

    JNr53FQ.png
    fOxSuf8.png

    Mortimer who was supposed to yet again, be spending quality time with her
    but was nowhere to be seen

    woxzjSG.png

    then again thats just what babies do she thought to herself

    kfHapYb.png

    had she not felt the same when Alexander was just a nooboo?

    IQBv039.png
    6cyW9bp.png

    yeah. kind of.

    still there was something eerie about this

    to be honest even Bonehilda was tad concerned of her dance skills getting rusty in his absence.

    well, at least Bonehilda had other things to do.

    OanYtmo.png
    pxG31HH.png
    Mp3n1s6.png

    Bella should have been more understanding

    2GCi21e.png

    or perhaps she just needed to understand

    IWLaLNb.png

    in fact Doctor Lothario had been calling her endlessly to hang out after their visit to hospital

    JQXLNIH.png

    maybe he was a fan, or just a weirdo, yeah probably the latter

    1ozlOeW.png

    but he surely would know more about alien babies than Bella? Being doctor and all?

    rFqnZtU.png

    Bella decided to give it a try and visit the odd fellow in search for the truth.

    aCiXUfV.png
    koiAfew.png

    unfortunately for Bella that wasn't quite what Doctor Lothario had in mind.

    No, his interests rather differed.
