      • I thank you for the questions and will have my answers posted this evening when the scribe returns from her shift at the Red Cross. She is a cruel woman making me watch as she volunteers at blood drives.

  5. For Monsieur Du Pont

    1. What is the one thing you would change about your husband, if you could? I could be a perfectly agreeable wife and insist that I love my husband just the way he is. But if there were one thing I would choose to chnge about Sebastien, it is his uncanny ability to get himself dis-invited to social situations that he had no desire to be involved with in the first place. A shining example of this was when he ate the Chief Handmaiden of the Seelie Queen, Pear Bottom or Pert Blossom or what have you. There have been other situations that I am still reaping the reprocussions of. Of course, he is an executioner and inquisitor and certainly not a diplomat. While I am happy for that to be my job, I would like it if he did not make my job just that much more difficult.

    2. What decade of your life has been your favorite? The ten years of my life that I was first married to Sebastien, so this would roughly be 1632 – 1642. It was shortly after Cardinal Richelieu’s death that Cardinal Mazarin sought Sebastien’s retirement. Almost a year later, Athos reappeared and killed Sebastien in a duel.

    3. Have you ever had a lover that you knew you could not trust as far as you could throw them? *laughs* Yes, numerous times. One in particular that is in essence a “kinsman”. In spite of our numerous accords of one kind or another, I know he has always had his own self interests at the forefront of the relationship. It’s a little like playing chess with someone whom you know has a tendency to cheat, but you play anyway.

    4. If you were free to have multiple spouses, would you? Why would I? Spouses are a very great bother, so I would have to say, ‘No,’ no matter if Sidhe law were changed or not. While Sebastien never pretended to ‘own me’, and he was in fact my consort, never King, There will always be those who have the erroneous notion that your love and regard buys them a license to try to assert some sort of power over you. They somehow get the idea that as soon as the ring is slipped upon the finger of the bride at the altar, so begins her entry into slavery to him. And to be honest, that expectation is not without merit, in spite of much romantic propaganda to the contrar. The wedding ring really is what that ring symbolises. It is not a link to the heart that dates back to antiquity, but rather indicative of the collar of slavery. A woman is more often than not regarded as chattel. It does not matter if the collar is diamond and jewel encrusted or made of iron. I am a sovereign, not a slave. And besides, it was my husband who allowed himself to be bound naked and kneeling with his face to the ground to me of his own free will. I can think of no one else who would willingly do the same for me.

    5. Who are you afraid of? *laughs* I should say no one. But to be honest, I fear the Watchers. Not as individuals, but rather how ccollectively they will turn Immortals of one kind against Immortals of other kinds in order to preserve themselves and their agenda at which fear is the centre. They will do it by any means necessary. I have observed what forms it can take and it causes me great concern. And those whom they influence do not even need to officially be Watchers, but rather mortals who fear those who can do things that they cannot and are things that they are not. I fear the ignorant, the gullible and the easily manipulated. They are blunt instruments in the hands of the devious and unrelenting.
