In London, in 1469, where my oldest sister just gave birth to the king's third child. Yet another daughter. He gives no sign of being bothered by the lack of a son and heir.

split personality :-)

In the Forbidden City in 1856 where I've just given birth to the Emperor's first male heir. The Empress is plotting to diminish my standing in the eyes of the Emperor. She tried to kill my child before it was born and now she has brought in four new concubines who are the Emperor's new favorites. My head eunuch just told me that I will not be allowed to raise my son.

Early 1900's Seattle. Just finished peeping into the windows of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop (which is still standing).

1920's Alaska where my husband has just been badly injured and there's not a doctor in sight.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
