The Royal Family of Zolandia

My dear friends,

I was cleaning up the doll room last night, feeling free to spend a week doing that instead of the many projects piling up.  Then I realized that my work is not done here. I can't leave you all without some royal closure. So off we go!

Victoire:  I'm not accustomed to waiting.
Emmanuelle: Well we certainly didn't want to give him advanced notice.  

Tallulah and Victor stroll home from dinner.

Victor: Someone needs to rid the sidewalks of the skateboards. Someone is going to break their neck.
Tallulah: You're becoming quite the curmudgeon in your old age, sir.

Victor: Oh dear.
Tallulah: It seems they've found you at last.

Tallulah:  Your Benevolent Highnesses
Victoire: Ah, at least someone has some manners around here.

Victoire: Unlike you, Brother.
Victor: My darling sisters. How I've missed you.
Emmanuelle: We've been so worried Victor.

Victoire: Thank you for the tea, Ms. Wilde. But eh....

Victoire clears her throat and gestures.

Victor: She is not going to pour for you Victoire, this isn't Zolandia.


Victoire: There, that's better. When will we meet the heir?

Victor: I will have her come join us. She doesn't live far.

Victor: Your Benevolent Highness, Princess Victoire, may I present Danielle Fear.
Victoire: Something must be done about that name. She will take the family name, will she not?  Yes, 'de Trepangier' will suit you well.

Victoire: Come, child, sit beside your auntie. No need for those formalities. It's just us.

Victoire: Well! Let us look at at you.

Victoire: I didn't expect this. You are rather like me, are you not? I was expecting you to look like her. You will do nicely. Look at that Zolandian bone structure.

Emmanuelle: Look at this glossy Chinese hair.
Dani: Japanese actually.
Emmanuelle: Yes, of course.

Victoire: Now tell me about Hanna Gudmundsdottir.

Dani: She's ruined my life. Many times over.

Dani: She has taken everything from me.

Emmanuelle: Don't be silly my dear, you will be Queen of Zolandia one day. You have a rather large and powerful family. She can do nothing to harm you again.

Victoire: We take the protection of the family name very seriously. At this moment our team is busy at work investigating your past and erasing any...unpleasantness. But Ms. Gudmundsdottir will not give up, I imagine. We must prepare for her.

Victor: I knew you'd like her!
Victoire: I take the family and the fate of Zolandia very seriously, unlike yourself. It's a wonder that you are my twin when we are as different as can be!  Danielle will return with us at once.

On the way out, Victoire whispers, "Did you tell her? About Zolandia?"
"Don't be ridiculous. Superstitious townsfolk, that's all that is."

"Don't be a fool Brother. You've seen enough in your day. How can you abandon her?"

"I will guide her, Victoire. As will you. I have vowed a year in her service. But no more. You will leave me in peace."
"Ah and what of Zolandia? What peace will we have?"

I'll miss you guys!!!

On the Re-Organization Train!

Inspired by Muff and The Grandmommy , I decided to come out of my summer hiatus (what can I tell you, I got a Roku and have been abusing Netflix pretty heavily) and post my own reorganization attempts. So here's some back story. I've destroyed the Grandville monarchy. Well, Dani has abdicated. This life isn't really for her. She tried some charity work to give herself a purpose but she was never allowed to be in the trenches. Only cutting ribbons, donating over-sized checks to charities, smiling and shaking hands for the camera. The one time she tried for some personal connection, the press captured her in action and it was a scandal in the castle. The Peasant Princess, they called her. Anyway, Victoire has taken the symbolic throne but she's not likely to have stories. But she will have photos because she is just gorgeous. Part Two of the back story: (Hold on, I'm getting there.) I haven't been posting much but Grandville continues to grow in numb

Quick note about comments...

I love your comments. I think without them, I would go into a spiral of self doubt. But stupid Blogger will neither let me reply to your comments, nor even make comment of my own! It does this to me sometimes. I truly appreciate all of your comments. Thank you for the support! If you have any clues on how to solve this problem, let me know! And also, if the blog has trouble loading for you, tell me. I'm trying to clean it up around here... smooches!

Introducing Sabine and Dasha

In the heart of the cold cold city, big time music producer Sabine sits in her office. Her assistant Zarrin walks in. "I've got that contract you asked for." "Thanks Zarrin. How about some coffee?" "Oh yes, of course." "I'd like to not have to ask for it every morning Zarrin," Sabine says gently but firmly. Sabine looks up. "What on earth? Honey, I hired you because you are a legendary party girl. This conservative get up has got to go." Zarrin stands very still, hoping Sabine will stop staring at her with displeasure. "Is Dasha in yet? Will you ask her to come down?" "Of course."  Sabine begins to read over the contracts. "Yeah. What do you want?" "Well aren't we chipper this morning?" "Your idiot assistant didn't make the coffee yet." "My darling Dasha, you can finally have this office."  "Finally. You don't
