Just a place to ask questions and make observations that don't really fit with the story

Not the best of timing, but I will making the annual trek south in search of second summer. Probably be offline until late next week. Perhaps come up with some details about your character to post and we'll pick this up when I return. Thanks.

No worries! I'm on no hurry. Plus, as you pointed out, this gives me plenty of time to flesh Evelyn out. Be safe on your trip!

I have tomorrow off work, so I'm going to take the time to write up a nice bit about Evelyn, then.

Evelyn Northwood was born into a relatively well-to-do family, along with an older brother named Murdoch. Their lives have been quite ordinary, to be honest. Evelyn was raised to be all the things that a good woman was meant to be in these times: elegant, courteous, and versed in such things as embroidery, dance, poetry.

For the most part, Evelyn didn't mind her upbringing. She even enjoyed quite a bit of it! She was quite partial to dance and poetry, both of which fed into her love of music. (Embroidery she just found to be a nightmare of boredom and finger pricks that led to nothing but wasted time and frustration.) Her parents recognized her talent for the musical arts and had her enrolled in a prestigious school which would foster her gifts.

At school, Evelyn found that she enjoyed a bit more freedom. Oh, the teachers kept a close eye upon the students. It wasn't as if there was nothing to worry about. However, it was far easier for her to evade their eyes than it had been to keep out sight of the family's faithful, strict butler, the other servants, or her parents. After all, the teachers were more invested in her education than in making sure she stayed well within what would be considered acceptable behavior for a Northwood.

That's not to say that Evelyn was a wild child who threw all caution to the wind. Not at all! She still knew that she needed to maintain a certain image for the family. But, there may have been nights when she slipped out of the dorms and crept alone in gardens in the darkness, exploring at hours that wouldn't be deemed permissible any other time. And, she may have enjoyed a discreet drink with friends, while sharing secrets in some tucked away corner.

Her academic career was a series of successes as her talent for the violin, her chosen instrument, grew. It wasn't long after she graduated that she landed a job in an orchestra as a substitute player. She stood in a few times for absent members and slowly proved her ability to the conductor. Soon, she was hired on as a short term contractor, working over the course of a year, with her employment to be renewed if she continued to do well. After a few years working as such, she was hired as a permanent member of the string section.

For the past few years, she's been travelling with the orchestra as they moved from city to city, performing. Thus, she's been exposed to a wide array of people and cultures as she explored the cities in between performances.

Do you want to wait until I have my sheet and items together, or should I go ahead and start posting to the story?

Please start posting whenever you're ready. The style is interactive fiction, the sheet is mostly for fun.

Will do! I have nothing going on for Thanksgiving. My family has decided to not do a get together, this year. I'll post something a little later. Just finished a post for another game, so I'm taking a break. (And, it lets me switch gears from fantasy to Edwardian England.)

I need to retrain myself to actually write detailed posts about what my character is thinking and feeling. I've gotten so used to not sharing that information when writing for a group that I have fallen out of the habit.

No worries! Totally understand about it being hectic, right now. We're having our Xmas today, as a matter of fact. (My son's holiday starts this weekend and we were like... why should he have to wait to enjoy his Xmas presents? Let's just do it now!)

I just realized that I never chose a portrait! Heh. I'll probably cycle through several before I settle on one that I like. I always find it so hard to locate one that seems close to what I want.

Sorry that it seems like Evelyn isn't doing much in this last post. But, I kind of want to see what is going on with Jane and Prospero before I have Evelyn jump into the conversation.

If Jane seems agitated, she'll want to distract her with something else. Maybe go help her with some decorating around the house or preparing festivities. She's enjoying Prospero's company, but Jane is more important, at the moment.

But, I definitely want to get some more time for her and Prospero to talk, as well.
