Leda's Grandmother had come to visit for the Solstice, despite worries that the journey from the family homestead would be dangerous. Now she and Leda were having a bit of tea before she returned.

Leda's Grandmother was gifted with the insight to guess what others were thinking, regardless of mental shields. Therefore she knew that the girl was pondering how her Grandmother looked actually younger than her mother.

"It's the stress." she told the girl. "I was never Queen you see. We were always on good terms with the royal family, but it wasn't until your mother married the crown prince that we became 'royals'."

Leda winced. "Great. She was Queen in peace time even. I'll probably wind up looking like some hag."

Her Grandmother glanced pointedly at the cup of coffee that Leda was nursing. "If you insist on drinking that swill instead of tea."

They both smirked, looking remarkably similar. "And I don't know that you could truly call it peace time." she continued. "Corwyn was always scheming. The return of the human world brought it to a head though. That's when he truly started down the road he is on now. And that's when the strain began to show on your parents. The schemes became more dangerous, some of them even deadly. They lost friends to more than a few. Eventually it got so bad they fled, and well, you know the rest."

Leda sighed and put down her coffee. It was getting cold anyway. She opened her mouth to speak, but again, her Grandmother knew what she was thinking.

"They would both be proud of you. Even before the war you were doing remarkable things. Making friends with the Dragons and the Merfolk, opening embassies in Mortal cities. I know you did not want this job. That you still don't. I hope one day you are able to set the burden aside, but you are a wonderful Queen my dear. From the way you're handling the situation with Corwyn, to your return during our darkest, most hopeless hour." Finally she shook her head.

"But enough of such heavy talk. Tell me more about how the mortal world has changed. I haven't seen it since I was a girl and that was a very long time by their standards."
anarchist_queen: (yay!)
One second the Void was creeping up on her, eating away at the world around her, leaving her with only this former mortal enemy for company, and the next...everything was back.

She stared at Stormy Waves for a moment, who was looking very confused. Even more so when she let out a joyful yell, kissed him, and then whooped, grabbed her scrying mirror and ran off.

"What just happened?" he asked.

Leda meanwhile called all her friends. She panned the mirror around from her perch at the highest balcony in the palace.

"Look!! Looklooklooklook! It's back! It's all back and I'm alive and everyone here thinks I'm either nuts or have had waaaaaaaay too much chocolate! Now we must party!"

[Momo, Karla, Jon, James. You knows who you is.]

After her conversation with Billy yesterday, Leda had a hard time deciding what to do. Finally, she had determined that she did not have to choose. She had spent all night and most of today recording what she knew of Faerie and Bordertown so there would be something left behind if nothing else remained.

Now she stood at the end of the causeway, steeling herself.

[This will be Leda's final post till all this is over. If anyone wants to have a dramatic tearful farewell, this is the place to do it :D]

The portal dropped Leda off seemingly as easy as ever, despite the difficulties portalocity was having.

The minute she arrived, she placed calls to her friends. She'd been able to get no info from outside Faerie save the PR messages from Portalocity. Hopefully someone here would be able to help her.

She'd suspected Corwyn had been responsible for the Dragons vanishing. Until he vanished too.

[Leda is back to see what's what. Post is open.]
anarchist_queen: (excuse me?)
"Say that again?" Leda said, her brow furrowing.

"I don't know how else to explain it." Strider said. "No one remembers there being anything there, but all the evidence suggests that there was in fact, a...something there."

"And now there's..."


Leda frowned. "I think the word you're looking for is 'sea' or 'ocean'. That's what usually borders a portside town."

Strider shrugged. "If you say so."
