Mr. Sputnik Tells The Story

Mr. Oolon Sputnik captured the events of the Reconciliation Day Ball in this fine piece:


Tears fall uncontrollably from my eyes...this Duchess is emotionally destoyed and heartbroken... Tonight was the Reconciliation Ball....reconcilitation - ha! There is no more false a term for what happened tonight! All of Caledon gathered in *my* home of Coughton Court in Caledon Carntaigh. Cousin Eva and I were so thrilled to be hosting our dear Cousin Kendra, otherwise known as the Kaiserin of Neualtenburg, in the home of our Grandfather! The excitement of the evening almost eclipsed my sadness at the fact that my Knight, Sir Red Caliber is away on important travels...and could not be at my side for the event.

The night was magical...everyone dressed in their finest clothes, waltzing in the moonlight. It was also the first opportunity to use Color Sgt. ZenMondo Wormser's fabulous dance card system! Thanks to his brilliant code poetry we were able to dance with proper dance cards for the very first time! I was so happy...

Suddenly without warning, Colonel Otoole burst into the hall.…

Cousin Congeniality

I spent a most pleasant Monday evening with my dear cousines, Kaiserin Kendra Bancroft von Neualtenburg and Her Grace Eva Bellambi Duchess of Loch Avie. We three are so excited about the Reconciliation Day Ball that I am hosting this upcoming Saturday in honor of the bonds between our nations, Caledon and Neualtenburg.

From You I Have Been Absent

From You I Have Been Absent
~ William Shakespeare ~

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dress'd in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laugh'd and leap'd with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue,
Could make me any summer's story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew;
Nor did I wonder at the Lily's white,
Nor praise the deep vermillion in the Rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem'd it Winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.
